Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 23:

"So what's up?" Ryan asked, stepping out of the travellator.

"We think we figured out why the paradox alarm went off," Liam began.

"It has to do with either Ethan or his brother or both. It's highly likely that either or both of them weren't supposed to come here, at least at this point in time."

"But they did. I had to explain everything to them to convince them that they're not going crazy. The problem is now that they've been here, there's no way I can think of to undo it. since they've been here and know about the travellators, what do we do?"


"There's only one thing we can do," Duncan replied in a strange tone of voice; his face wearing an unreadable expression. "You have to go back again and erase all memory of us. How and when I'm not exactly sure yet."

Heading Down The Long Road chapter 8

“Dave, do you believe in God,” Greg asked as they lay about in bed one Saturday morning.

“Sure; why do you ask?”

“Just wondering. I do. Do you go to church at all?”

“No, I don’t. I was raised Catholic, but I stopped going years ago; too much hypocrisy and anti-everything rhetoric. What about you?”

“I used to when I was in Boston. They had an Episcopal church that was very accepting and welcoming of gay people. In fact, there’s a world-wide ministry and fellowship program called Integrity. I was a member and it was really great.”

“Are you telling me that you want to start going?”

“I would like to, and I’d like you to come with me. I’d also like to see if we can get Integrity hooked up with the task force that Gwen and I are setting up.”

“Will they accept me, being as I’m Catholic?”

“You could always convert,” Greg said teasingly, which earned him a pillow to the face.

“Seriously.”

“I’m sure they will. We just have to find one.”

“As I recall, there are three or four of them in P-town. Kyle would know. He knows every gay and gay-friendly group around. Let me give him a call.” He picked up his phone and dialed.

“’Morning, Dave. What’s up?” Kyle’s cheerful voice came over the phone.

“Greg and I were just lying around and we got to talking about church. Do you know of any Episcopal churches that have the Integrity program?”

“Yeah, St. Stephens, the one that Jay and I go to. Wait. I thought you were Catholic?”

“I haven’t set foot inside a Catholic church in years; too much bullshit. Greg’s Episcopalian though and he wants us to go.”

“Well, you could always convert,” Kyle said.

Upon hearing this Dave smacked Greg in the face again with a pillow. “What was that for,” Greg asked, smacking him back.

“Kyle just told me I could convert. He had to have picked that up from you telepathically.”

“Bitch,” Greg declared as he smacked Dave again with a pillow.

 “Hello? Dave? Are you still there?”

“Yeah, I’m here; just had to deal with that brat of a boyfriend of mine.”

“TMI and I don’t want to know. Seriously though, Integrity is a great program. We have a lot of good times. It meets every other Saturday at seven. The next meeting is a week from today and I’d love to have you guys come with us.”

“If we’re not working, we’ll definitely be there.”

“Cool. Listen, why don’t you guys come over for the day? We could have cookout.”

Dave looked over at Greg, “Cookout at Kyle’s?”

“Hell yeah. We’ll bring the salads.” Greg jumped out of bed and headed for the shower, his mind already listing the ingredients he needed.

“We’re on. What time would you like us to be there?”

“Come over any time. Jay’s on assignment for the magazine, but he should be home by two.”

“Okay. See you guys later.” Dave hung up and rushed to join Greg in the shower. After a bit of foreplay, Greg was deep inside Dave who was facing the shower wall, hands braced on the wall above his head, which was thrown back as Greg sucked on the junction of his neck and shoulder, drawing blood to the surface.

“Ohhhh…..that feels so good,” Dave moaned.

“Not. As. Good. As. It. Feels. To. Be. Inside. You.” Greg punctuated each word with a  deep thrust, all the while stroking Dave’s hard dick in time with his thrusting. With a shout Dave unloaded, coating Greg’s hand and hitting the shower wall. Greg quickly followed, filling the condom almost to the breaking point. Greg gently withdrew and they slowly slid down the wall to the shower floor. “That’s what you get for smacking me in the face with your pillow twice,” Greg growled playfully.

“If getting my brains fucked out is the punishment, remind me to do it more often.”

“I need to get my ass in gear if I want to get the salads done.” Greg quickly finished washing, hopped out of the shower and dried off. Padding naked into the kitchen he took stock of what ingredients they had on hand.

Dave came out of the bedroom dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, drying his hair. Greg told him that he needed to go to the store to get some ingredients.

“You’re going undressed like that?”

Greg looked down and realized that he was still naked. “Sure, why not.” He twisted his hips back and forth causing his generous endowment to slap his thighs. “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!” He snickered, running around Dave towards the bedroom to get dressed. He wasn’t quite fast enough as Dave snapped him on the ass with the wet towel.

“You’ll pay for that later!” Greg warned.

“I’m counting on it. Do you need help with anything?”

“Yeah, can you cut up some potatoes and start them and the macaroni boiling? I need to get lettuce, carrots, cheese and cold cuts for the chef salad.”

“Okay. Hurry back, baby.”
The food was great and the conversation even better. The four men agreed to meet at the church the following morning where a surprise awaited Greg, Kyle and Jay.

Meeting up in the church parking lot the next morning, Dave was surprised to see how warmly everyone greeted them. The greeting that surprised them the most was when Kevin approached them Nick, Kyle’s cousin Karin’s wife Denise's little brother. Even more surprising was that they were holding hands. Nobody knew that they were together. Introductions and hugs abounded. It wasn't long before Kyle pounced on Nick.

"Okay, so how long has this been going on, and why didn't you tell anyone, and does Denise know?" Kyle fired off the questions rapidly.

"Not long, we wanted to make sure it was going to work between us and yes, she knows but we asked her not to say anything to anyone yet."

"And," Kyle prompted.

Nick pulled Kevin close and replied, "I've never been happier."

"Good enough for me. Welcome to the family, Kevin. You hurt my cousin and your ass is mine."

"Thanks, Kyle, but I'm afraid my ass, and the rest of me for that matter, belongs to Nick."

Everybody groaned and chorused "TMI!" as they headed into the church.

After the service, which Greg and Dave enjoyed immensely, was over Kyle took them around and introduced them to everyone. Dave was a bit overwhelmed by everything, especially when the Priest took him aside and talked with him for almost an hour. Dave decided right then and there that he would definitely be returning as often as he could.
The next couple of months found Dave and Greg immersing themselves in the church and especially Integrity, the Episcopal Church’s LGBT fellowship and outreach program which also brought them into a closer friendship with Kyle, Jay, Tommy and Andy.

At last the big night was upon them. “Dave, are you ready to go?” Greg asked, slightly nervous as tonight was the first meeting of the Fellowship of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Officers that he and Gwen had been tasked to create by the Police Commissioner.

“Yeah, as ready as I’ll ever be,” Dave responded with a note of nervousness in his voice.

“Baby, you’ll be fine,” Greg soothed. “You’ve made dozens of speeches in front of large crowds. This won’t be any different.”


Neither man had a clue as to how different the night would be, nor did they have any idea of the events that would unfold and irrevocably change their lives forever.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 21:

After materializing back in Ethan’s workshop, Chris was the first to recover. “Okay, what a crazy fucked-up dream I just had!”

“I had the same weird-ass dream, I bet.”

“Guys, I assure you it was no dream. You just made a trip to the 30th century. It was absolutely real; as real as I’m standing here.”

“But how is that possible.”

“Many years ago from my perspective, scientists started looking into alternative methods of transportation as our atmosphere became more and more polluted. That eventually led to the invention of the travellators, which could transport a person instantly from one place to another. Not long after, the travellators became the only method of transportation other than bicycles as any type of powered motor vehicle became outlawed. It was a complete fluke that we discovered that the travellators could transport people through time as well as from place to place.

Once that was discovered, the government recognized the very real possibility of someone going back into the past and altering history for their benefit manipulating the stock market to get rich or assassinating a pivotal historical figure, so they formed the Timeline Preservation Commission. As an agent of the TPC it's my job to correct anything that alters the timeline and prevent potentially disastrous paradoxes."

"Wow," Ethan said through pursed lips. "How is it that you do

“Well?” Ryan demanded as he stepped out of the travellator.

“Thirty-two percent restoration of the timeline; I was right,” Duncan said with a sigh of satisfaction. “The two of you are meant to be together. The question is, in our time or his time?”

“I think the next logical step would be to bring him to our time and see what happens.”

“How would you feel, just out of curiosity, to living in the past?”

“I wouldn’t like it. I’d have to be careful of everything I say or do. We don’t want any paradoxes on our hands.”

“I agree. If you are meant to be together, and everything points to that, it would have to be in the future.”

“Wouldn’t that cause additional timeline alterations?”

“Good question.” Duncan contacted Anne in the records department. “Ann, please get me anything and everything you can find on Ethan Evans, and I mean everything, including engagement announcements, weddings, children, contributions to society by him and any offspring. Thanks!”

“Duncan, I promised Ethan and his brother that I’d come back and explain everything. I picked up a keepsake box from the Antique store, but I didn’t look at it very closely, and I should have. It was same box Ethan gave his cousin for her birthday a month prior. We have a potential paradox on our hands, but I don’t think that will happen.”


“Get back there and see that it doesn’t!” Duncan snapped. Of all the… He was unable to complete the thought.

He returned with Ryan in tow. Hugs and cheers abounded. “All charges against Ryan have been dropped. He turned to Ryan. "We have to talk. As for the rest of you, take the rest of the day off with my thanks for a job very well done. You've earned it." To Ryan, he said, "let's go back to my office."

Once seated in Duncan's office, Duncan began, "As I said in the car, you're still not off the hook as far as your young man goes."

Ryan's heart skipped a couple of beats as he thought of Ethan. His face fell at the thought of possibly never seeing him again. He knew without a doubt that he was in love with him. He also knew that all evidence of them meeting had been erased from existence. He hung his head to hide the silent tears of his heartbreak. "I love him," he whispered.

"I know you do," Duncan soothed. "He's an exceptional young man." Ryan's head jerked up when he heard this. "Yes, I've met him, and you're going to as well."

            "Wait. What? Say that again slowly, please."

Wednesday brief - Love Across Time chapter 19


 Chapter 19 of my Wednesday briefs story, Love Across Time is now up. You can read it by clicking here.

If you have just come across my blog and would like to read the entire story, you can click here to get to the Wednesday briefs page.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 19:

“I’m willing to be that it was Agatha Jones who phoned in the phony obit. If Liam calls back with the temporal and geographic coordinates I think he’s going to, Connor, Adrienne and I are going back to those same coordinates and catch that bitch red-handed. If I’m right, she’s broken enough temporal laws to get kicked off the tribunal. Then we’ll have our unanimous vote and all charges against Ryan will be dropped.”

“I’d so love to be there when she gets caught,” Anne said.

“So you come along with us. In the meantime, let’s continue going over the evidence. We don’t want to leave anything to chance.”

The room was silent as they all continued to pour over records and after what seemed like an eternity, the phone rang.


“Give me some good news, Liam. You’re sure? There’s no question? Great. We’ll be right there. Set travellators 1-5 to those temporal coordinates and set the geographic coordinates for around the corner. Grab a video unit and get Terry to cover Control for you. The five of us are going to take a little trip.” Hanging up the phone he turned to everyone in the room. “Let’s go, gang. Time to get some justice for Liam.”
