Tokyo Nights: Episode Two is now available and Episode Three is almost ready for release, while two more are waiting to be edited. I’m taking a break from writing it for the next two days – writing anything – after injuring my thumb coaching gymnastics. It doesn’t hurt – not a good thing – but holding a pen is difficult for long periods. The break might not be good for bank balance as I buy books to read instead, e-books because I can’t hold a paperback either. Thankfully a house full of teenagers means I have (un)willing servants to assist with things I can’t manage or shouldn’t do.
Walking behind Ogawa, anxiety prickled at Hisato’s skin and toyed with stomach though this time not out of fear. Well, maybe a little. Feared that the rising heat in his veins would show on his face and shine bright from his eyes as Hisato tried to stop his gaze drifting over Ogawa. The previous times they’d met Ogawa had been clad in a suit, but now his suit jacket had been discarded and shirt sleeves rolled above his elbows. Ink and muscles tantalisingly on display and Hisato wanted to run his fingers along the edges of the man’s tattoos. Wanted to strip Ogawa’s shirt off and follow the lines where they lead over his skin. How far did they go?
