They fell in love while playing a couple on a television show, and now we get to find out whether Quell and Hale’s relationship can weather any storm. The sequel to J.R. Gray’s Unscripted is coming in June and we have the cover, as well as a sneak peek.
“What a morning.” Quell grabbed a robe and slipped it on, leaving it untied as we headed towards the kitchen.
“What because you’re internet gay or because my dick is being talked about on TMZ?”
“Both. I really do want to see what they are saying about you.” He started the coffee pot and turned to lean against the counter.
I already had my phone out and was pulling up twitter. “I have a shit load of tags.”
“They are tagging you in this shit?” He looked a little annoyed on my behalf.
“Oh yeah, and #HalesPackage is trending.” I turned my phone around to show him and it was back to laughing. “Mark wasn’t kidding. This has turned into a monster.”
“I know what your next birthday gift is!”
“I’m not sure I want to know with that look on your face.” I stuck my phone back in my pocket and got down mugs.
“I’m going to find the best ones and print them and get them framed for the office.”
I scrubbed a hand over my face. “The sad part is I know you probably will.”
“Fuck yes. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” His joy was contagious. I wanted to take pieces of it and save it for rainy days.
I etched it into my memory, knowing I would keep it all close to my heart.
“For you. You should do it for your own birthday.” I took the coffee he set in front of me and followed him out to our deck.
He took a seat in one of the chairs and kicked his feet up. I sat in the chair next to him and ran a hand over his shin. This was intimacy. Little moments with him. My heart ached at the idea of being separated from for so long in only a few days.
“I’m going to dig through this tag,” Quell said, pulling out his phone after smiling at me.
“Of course you are. Don’t favorite any of them.” I pulled up TMZ instead. I wanted to see what kinds of things were being said. It was probably the worst thing to be doing but I couldn’t stop myself. I was curious and I knew it would be eating me alive if I didn’t
“Why not?” he asked, laughing.
“Are you serious? Do you realize that will be top news? If Quellcrist King is faving thirst tweets about me?”
“Oh… good call. Maybe I’ll wait a few weeks to do that.”
I glanced over, blinking at him. “A few weeks?”
He shrugged, giving me a wink. “We’ll see how public stuff goes.”
