"Darling, are you busy? Could you come here for a minute?"
"That depends. Is it for research?"
"No, not at all," comes the blatant, dirty lie.
Erik puts his book aside and goes to the study anyway. He’s long since developed strategies to deal with this particular pitfall of living with a bestselling author of what the bookstores generally shelve as “erotica,” though Charles himself prefers “filth.”
"I’m taking a break," Charles claims, stretching in place as Erik rounds the doorway. "I’ve done a day’s work already— I’ve banked a good 1200 words, and I came up with a plausible reason for them to have sex in the walk-in freezer."
"Glad that research won’t go to waste. What are we testing out now?”
"You’re so cynical," Charles sighs, a complete dodge, as he saunters over and wraps his arms around Erik’s shoulders.
