An Original Sin – reprint

Short Story – first published online at Velvet Mafia – Dangerous Queer Fiction, Issue 16, August 2005

Excerpt:

I was high that night.  That’s my excuse.  But what sixteen-year old wouldn’t want to stand bare-chested in the front seat of a speeding Buick Electra Convertible with a rattlesnake watermelon in his hands? 

    The car was grooving through a bubble of light that pulled us down the long black stretch of back road through that hot August night.  Aerosmith’s Sweet Emotion blared out of the dashboard.  All I cared about was the next road sign.  This was target practice, and I was loaded.

    Aaron’s fat and older brother, Peter, came up with this one.  A watermelon field.  His convertible.  Mailboxes.  Signs.  Wanna go?
