Danny hummed, hauling his overloaded laundry basket out of the dorm, completely bypassing the basement laundry room. Who needed it when Lee let him come do laundry at the house. House. Wow. House.
Lee had a house. So much for the whole bachelor male thing. Danny thought maybe the pack was pushing that kind of thing because they wanted Lee and Heather to settle down and stop playing with him. Oh, it was almost spring break, and Lee had been right; the pack had come around to him a little. They didn't love him, but a lot of them were nice to him now, and he could have dinner with some of them without feeling like he was being judged and found lacking.
Okay, so a lot of them grumbled at him, but damn. He, Heather and Lee were getting along really well.
Simon, his roommate, thought he'd lost his mind. Still, Simon liked Heather a lot, even if he gave Lee a wide berth. Speaking of Lee, the man himself pulled up in that big old pickup, just in time to help him put the laundry basket in the back of the king cab. "Hey, man." Lee grinned at him, his hand coming to rest on Danny's leg when he settled into the passenger side.
"Hey. Thanks for picking me up. Hard to haul this shit on the bike."
"Uh-huh. Not to mention that you'd never scratch up the bike by strapping shit to it."
"That, too." Yeah, his bike was his baby. So sue him.
"You ready for the full moon?"
Danny wasn't sure if he was, so he pondered that a moment. He was going to run with the pack this time, not with the wolves at the school. He'd had another three moons since that first one, and he figured he was pretty good at taking care of himself. Maybe. He hoped. "Yeah. Yeah, I think I am."
"You could sound more enthusiastic."
"Yeah, yeah. I'm just not a hick yet, okay?"
Lee laughed, the sound warm and fond, and Danny was amazed at how fast he'd gotten comfortable with what was, admittedly, the strangest relationship he'd ever had. He genuinely liked Lee, even if he would never have become friends, or lovers, with the guy if it wasn't for Heather. Pushy little girl. He did adore her.
They pulled up at the little frame house that sat on the edge of town, fields of snow-tinged green out there. Spring was really getting on them. It was kind of glorious, what with the mountains still covered in white and all. Maybe he was turning into something of a country boy after all. Or at least a nature lover coexisting with a city boy.
Lee led the way, and the door was unlocked, just like always. No one locked their door in Wolf Creek. Well, until they got inside. Then Lee locked the door and pulled the laundry basket out of Danny's arms, tossing it to the floor.
"Hold on, babe. If I don't start the laundry now it will never get done tonight." Danny put a hand on Lee's chest, holding the big guy off.
"You can wait five minutes. That's all it will take for our first orgasm." Lee brushed his hand aside, pulling Danny up against his chest and kissing him hard.
