The first time I saw him we were all standing around the pick up courts in town talking trash and picking teams. He arrived with my brother Emmett, and at first I didn't really notice him. My focus was on the game and who I was going to pick for my team. Most nights, my friends and I gathered at the local basketball court to play some ball. Tonight was a typical Friday night for me and the guys. Eric and I were goofing off and I had him in a head lock when Emmett and his college roommate arrived.
"Hey, Edward. This here is Jasper," he gestured to the man next to him.
Trying to act cool, I released Eric's head and stretched my hand out to him. He grinned broadly and grasped my hand firmly. It was then that I really looked at him. He was the most gorgeous man I had every laid eyes on. He held my hand a beat longer and gave it a tiny squeeze before letting go.
He smirked his reply, "Nice to meet you, Edward. Emmett has told me a lot about you."
Turning to Emmett and wondering what he had told Jasper, I noticed that he was grinning like a moron. Oh shit. What did my dumbass brother tell him? Did he tell him that I was gay? Wait. Was Jasper gay? Glancing back to Jasper, I realized he was blushing slightly and looking down at his shoes. Ahhhh, he was gay. That is excellent. Giving Jasper my famous smirk, I asked him if he played.
"Yeah, I do. Em and I usually play a couple times a week." He spoke softly, but with confidence, and looked up through his long dark lashes. I thought my cock was going to burst out of my gym shorts and say hi.
Quickly placing the ball down to cover my embarrassing situation, I knew my face had to be ten shades of red. What was this guy doing to me? Deciding that I had humiliated myself enough for the evening, I walked backward toward the rest of the guys.
"You two gonna play or just stand there all night," I laughed as I tripped and fell on my ass in front of Jasper, my brother, the guys and everyone else at the courts. Great. Now I really looked like an idiot. Jasper came over to me and gave me a hand up.
"You okay there," he offered looking amused as he helped me to my feet. Nodding and brushing myself off, I noticed the sultry look he was now giving me.
Leaning into me and whispering so that I was the only one to hear, he spoke in a husky voice, "Good, because I have plans for that ass later tonight."
Jerking back from him to stare into his eyes, I realized that he was not joking. Smiling at him, I answered as cocky as I could, "Well, I think I can handle that."
