Weds Brief: Just Desserts

Well it's that time of the week.  Time to Flash.  This week I picked a photo prompt.  Something that pretty much everyone, or most everyone LOVES.....Chocolate!

Tom and Ben are going to be celebrating Thanksgiving together with a few friends and family. This event happened this week, before Thanksgiving.

Just Desserts

“Mm, yummy.”  Tom looked at the Godiva website, at all the photos of the wonderful confections they sold; ones that his beloved husband would absolutely drool over.   He’d been at their shop at the mall and couldn’t resist picking up a box of chocolate truffles.  Ben had been working, showing houses to a few couples. He’d called and said he was just finishing up the final details on a contract and should be home in about an hour.  

Tom made dinner; just some meatloaf and potatoes for his hungry man.   The chocolates were going to be a surprise. 

He’d just taken the meatloaf out of the oven when he heard the door open.


“In here, honey.”

“What smells so good?”

Tom got a kiss on the lips. “Meatloaf.”

“My favorite.  I knew there was a reason I rushed home…for food.”  Ben smiled mischievously.

“Nothing else?” Tom was letting the meat rest while he began mashing the potatoes he’d boiled.

“Hmmm, let me think.”  Ben leaned on the counter. “Nope.”

“Well, I guess I’ll just eat all this food myself.”

“Not if I kiss the cook again,”  Ben teased.

“You sure about that? I thought you’re only interested in the food?”

“The food is good, but I love the cook better.”

Tom felt arms wrap around his chest and kisses planted on the back of his neck.

“That’s better. Why don’t you change and I’ll finish dinner.”

Tom had the meatloaf and potatoes, string beans, and their favorite wine on the table when Ben joined him.

“Wow!” Tom felt his heart pitter patter when he saw his man dressed in a green sweater and jeans, the same sweater Tom had given Ben for his birthday.

“Hi, my sexy firefighter.”  Ben took a seat next to Tom and unfurled his napkin and put it on his lap.  “Let’s eat.”

“Have at it, sweetheart.”   Tom enjoyed watching his man eat.

“Oh boy, I’m stuffed.”  Ben said after he’d taken his last bite and pushed his seat back from the table.

“Really, too stuffed for these?”  Tom brought the special surprise out and put it on the table in front of Ben.

“No way, is this…”

“Godiva truffles, the ones you said you’d do anything to get your hands on.”

“Yeah, those.”

Tom picked up a sweet morsel and fed it to an eager Ben.

“Mm, delicious, your turn.” Ben slid a piece into Tom’s mouth. Tom couldn’t resist licking the chocolate off Ben’s fingers.

“Thank you, Tom. This is just fantastic. I can’t believe you did this for me.” 

“You’re worth it, I love you.” Tom leaned forward, their lips met.  “Let’s go to our bedroom.”

“Can we bring the box of goodies with us?”

“You bet.” Tom took the box of chocolate magic balls. 


The morning sunlight cast its light across the floor; in the spotlight was a trail of clothing on the floor and an empty box of chocolate lying next to the discarded apparel.   Two naked men lay in the bed, their limbs tangled in the bed sheets and each other.
