Travis tried to move, but he couldn’t. He blinked his eyes a few time and tried to make sure he wasn’t imaging things. Slowly, he regained control of himself and edged closer. It was undeniable. Two small horns, like those on the goats, were sticking out of Cembran’s forehead near the hairline. Moving forward, he sat on the edge of the bed and started to clean the blood off Cembran’s face. The bleeding had stopped so he removed the cloth from around Cembran’s head and finished cleaning up the blood.
Travis petted each of the goats as they pressed their noses against his legs. ” Cembran was shaking his head in disbelief. ” All Travis could do was shrug his shoulders; he had no explanation. They had both been working hard for the past few hours and they were covered in sweat. The day was turning out to be a hot one. After making sure all the animals had plenty of water, they headed back to the house. “I think we should cool off. Let’s go down to the lake,” Cembran suggested, his face unreadable.
Cembran had stopped moaning, had transcended words or even sounds. His head was thrown back, his mouth was open, his hands gripped the blanket in tight fists, and his feet rocking gently against the blanket. Giving the nipples a reprieve, Travis ran his hands down Cembran’s sides as his tongue explored and traced the lines on Cembran’s hard stomach. Travis slipped his hands beneath Cembran, cradling the curve of his butt. His tongue swirled in Cembran’s navel as he softly ran his fingers along Cembran’s cleft fingering him gently through his clothing.
