Luke glanced up at the knock on his door and watched it swing open. His eyes widened for a second and he grinned at the familiar figure of his boss occupying his doorway. As he stepped into the room, another man moved into view and Luke felt his heart trip. Dark hair curled over tanned features, a square jaw and a slight shadow along his jaw and throat slid down into broad shoulders, thick with muscles from working out. The tanned material of his uniform stretched over his biceps, clinging to his torso before dipping into the belted slacks of his uniform.
Butterflies danced in his gut and Luke swallowed, his attention lifting to meet the green stare of the stranger. He palmed his stomach, the punch of attraction stronger than he’d ever felt before. Sign me up for that rodeo. The thought raced through his head as the pair settled into the chairs across from his desk.
He breathed a sigh of relief and focused on his supervisor. “Morning, Craig, what brings you to my humble, if somewhat cluttered, office.” Luke offered his hand across his desk.
“Luke, hope you don’t mind us dropping in like this but I wanted to introduce you to your counterpart. Since you’re going up to be on fire patrol, he’ll be sharing the office with you until you come back down to the main office.” Craig Bortman gestured to the young man beside him. “This is Sean Tisman. This is his first field position, and I wanted to stick him with someone experienced. I know. I know you haven’t worked as a park warden for a couple of seasons, but that’s fine. You can still show him the ropes while doing your shifts.”
Luke swallowed hard, his mouth dry as he stared into the assessing gaze. Sean didn’t back down from his stare; rather, he met it head-on, his lips curling upward in a polite smile. Intelligent, calm, the green depths revealed little more than a detached sort of curiosity. Sean took his offered hand with a quick grin, his grip firm, palm slightly calloused.
“Pleasure’s all mine. I hope you won’t find me too much of a bother.”
“Not at all.” Luke resisted the urge to pull his hand away as the currents of desire licked along his nerves. Hoping to hide his reaction to the young stud, he leaned forward against his desk. “Did you attend Lethbridge?”
“Yes, I graduated about two years ago. Finished my training in Hinton and applied for the first position that came up. I’m excited to get to work.”
“Are you headed up right away?”
“No, I’ll be heading up in about ten days,” Sean explained quickly. “Mainly, I have a few more pieces of work to finish. As well, I had a family, uh, emergency and have to deal with it before I can leave.”
“Well, you can ride up with me, if you like. I was headed up around the same time. Save having to take two vehicles since there’s one there already.” Luke stifled a cringe at the flare of excitement singing through his veins with the very idea of being locked in a moving vehicle with Sean for any length of time. Annoyance fluttered to life, shoving aside the lingering lust, his idea of fun wasn’t sitting in a closed space with a man he was attracted to. He wasn’t anxious to even get close to anyone again; it only opened him up to heartache.
“Sounds good.” Sean and Craig rose. “I’ll be here next Thursday, then.”
“Excellent.” Watching them leave, Luke leaned back in his seat and exhaled. It was going to be a long summer.
