Wild – Liam was born that way.

So, what sends Liam plunging into darkness once again?

***Can be read as a standalone story***
The lights of the club dimmed. A spotlight appeared over center stage and a voice boomed over the loudspeakers.
“And, now please welcome the main attraction of the Velvet Post. Our very own Devil in disguise – Lee!”
Chatter ceased. Not a sound filtered through from the main area of the club where I waited beneath the stage. You could have heard a pin drop.
I gripped the pole, propelled myself almost to the top and wrapped one leg securely around the shimmering post, resting my other booted foot against my knee.
“Ready?” Pedro asked.
I nodded. Music thundered as the platform I was on began to rise. I didn’t need to glance up to know thick smoke billowed above me. I would emerge from it like I had done every night for the past three years.
I waited until my torso had cleared the floor of the stage and pressed a small button on the edge of my wings. The enormous wings eased open and scattered red lights flashed amongst the black feathers. The platform continued to rise and gripping the pole with my right arm and foot, I stretched out my left leg and arm until I was in a spread-eagled position. The smoke thinned and wafted away as the platform clicked and locked into place at stage level.
Men whistled and surged forward as I twisted erotically and slowly slid from the pole. The club was packed; I would make good money tonight.
About the Author
I live in sunny Queensland, Australia and retired after 37 years of Nursing. My husband of 44 years, together with our elderly Jack Russell Terrier and extremely opinionated 26-year-old Cockatiel, enjoy exploring the country with our caravan. When we are at home, we spend our time renovating our home. I write a variety of stories including Male/Male, Menage and Shapeshifter. Each book has a strong focus on story line with romantic interest building throughout. I explore real life issues from kids on the streets to motorcycle war and put my own twist on each one. I hope you take the opportunity to check out my offerings.
