Happy Saturday and welcome to My Sexy Saturday! For this hop you post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words. It can be from a WIP or something published.
For this week, I thought I’d do something from Faded Love, a single release from the Carved in Flesh anthology.

In a society that worships beauty and is filled with everyday images of what’s ideal, what would happen to an internationally well-known model who ends up scarred? Can his lover prove that scars fade, but love doesn’t?
Faded Love – single release from the Carved in Flesh anthology
Blurb: One moment in time can change your life, especially a life that revolves around your face. A near-fatal car accident leaves a world famous model’s face scarred and his career in a tailspin. The life Ashley knew is over and he wants to do nothing but fade away into nothingness. Only his lover, Will, can pull him out of his dark depression and make Ashley see even scars can be beautiful.
It was just like that doctor at the hospital said. He asked if Ashley was important to him. When Will said yes, the doctor gave Will the number to a shrink. He warned Will to let Ashley grieve for a while, and then—as hard as it would be—to act. To do whatever needed to be done. That time had come. Will walked to Ashley’s room, took a deep breath and opened the door. Let the fireworks begin.
Will switched on a desk table lamp and the room flooded with light. “Time to get up.”
A pillow flew by Will’s head. “What the fuck do you think you’re doing? Turn that off—now. Then get out.”
Will crossed his arms over his chest. “No. You’re getting up, one way or the other. The room smells. Hell, you smell. You need a shower.”
Ashley glared at Will. “If I reek that bad, feel free to leave. You know where the door is.”
Will walked to the edge of the bed. “Again, not happening. Either get up, or I’ll get you up. Your choice. But you will take a shower.”
Ashley stuck his middle finger up.
