Bishop Royal is a sleaze. He’s a cheat, a copycat, a bastard. He knows what you think of him and he doesn’t care. All he cares about is his best friend, Jake.
Jake Ellis has loved Bishop Royal for sixteen years. He’s been by his side through everything: deaths, hardships, and triumphs.
When Bishop’s life is pulled out from underneath him, he figures with nothing left to lose, it’s time to tell Jake how he feels.
Under pressure to be the picture-perfect boyfriend and his father’s perfect son, will Bishop fold or go after the only thing he’s ever truly wanted?
In my pocket my phone rings. I manage to fish it out before it goes to voicemail.
“Hey, I just wanted to see how things went.” The voice, which sounds as good as rain on a tin roof in the middle of a drought, belongs to my best friend, flatmate, and object of my affection for over a decade, Jake Ellis.
I give him a wry chuckle. “Pretty fucking bad actually.” But hearing Jake’s voice helps me forget all the shit that just went down in Dean’s office. He’s always had that effect on me.
“Ah fuck, man, I’m sorry.”
Jake and I have been friends since we were in primary school, but it was only when we hit high school and everyone was trying to steal glimpses in the girls’ changing room after PE that I realised I wasn’t interested in joining them. No, I was more interested in sneaking peeks at my best friend. Not that I’ve ever told him, or anyone. I have an image to uphold, and even I’ve got to admit I do it pretty fucking well.
“Nothing to be sorry for, Dean is a douche anyway.”
“What happened?” he asks.
“Got the sack,” I reply.
“Shit. Are you okay?”
“Eh.” I shrug, even though he can’t see me.
“Do you want anything? Need anything?”
I’m not going to lie; the fact that Jake is so concerned for me, for my wellbeing makes my heart swell. He knows me so well and that right there is why there will never be anyone else for me. “I think I’m okay,” I reply.
“Still, it’s got to suck.”
I blow out a breath. “Yeah.”
“What are you going to do now?”
“I don’t have a fucking clue.”
“When are you coming home?” he asks.
I look at my watch. “There’s a flight leaving in a couple of hours, I’ll be on that.”
“Good. Just come home, and we can work out your next move. You don’t have to have everything worked out right this second, okay?”
I nod. This, right here, is why I love Jake so much. He gets me. He’s the only one that ever has, and I know he’s the only person who ever will. “Thanks, Jakey, I’ll see you soon, yeah?”
“You know I’ll be here,” he says before hanging up.
My professional future might be a clusterfuck right now, but as long as I have Jake, that’s all I’ll ever need.
