He knocked on the door and waited for Ty’s response.
“Come in,” Ty grumbled.
Cole held back a smile and entered the office, carefully locking the door behind him.
Ty sat on the edge of his desk with the same scowl as a few moments before, staring at a file. “You were out there for a while with Aidan,” he said, not looking up from the pages in the folder. “You guys conspiring?”
Cole chuckled. “Is that what you think we were doing?”
Ty remained focused on the folder, flipping to the next page. “What else would it be? Seems you two were hell bent on getting me to a doctor and you both got your wish. Six fucking hours in the emergency room. I hope you’re happy.”
Cole bit his lip to hide the laugh that wanted to escape. Oh, his Ty had a temper.
“I wasn’t conspiring. I was hitting on Aidan,” Cole teased.
Ty immediately looked up, his scowl now focused on Cole.
Cole leaned back against the door. “I’m kidding. He’s not the Calloway I want. I just wanted you to focus on me and not that piece of paper.”
“That wasn’t funny.”
“No,” Ty said, his pointed glare steadily targeted at Cole.
Note to self, make sure Ty always gets more than just a few hours of sleep each night. “You’re a terrible liar. You should try a little harder if you actually expect to pull it off.”
Ty’s steady glare didn’t falter.
“You said fuck,” Cole teased.
“So? You say that a lot.”
“But you never do. You said it a few moments ago and twice yesterday.Personally, I like a good fuck,” Cole drawled, slowly walking toward Ty.
Ty looked away and dropped the file on his desk.
Cole reached out and grabbed Ty’s chin, turning his head to face Cole. He smiled when he saw the flush of embarrassmentthat always seemed to color Ty’s cheeks when he cursed. “It looks good on you.” He couldn’t help but wonder if Ty’s face would flush just as much during the act as it did when he said the word.
Ty looked at Cole, his gaze steady and his body stock-still other than the slight heave of his chest with each breath. A shiver passed through Cole at the unspoken challenge. Cole released Ty’s chin and stepped between his legs. He grabbed Ty by the waist and pulled him flush against his body, sending papers fluttering off the desk and onto the floor.
