Adrian Vincent is "The Flash," a hockey player who moves as fast on the ice as he does in bed, and his effect on Terry's heart may just last forever.
Terry Donaldson can’t wait to turn eighteen in a few weeks so that he can graduate and leave Norwich, the small town in Ontario he lives in. Since junior high, he’s been teased, and called, “Terry, the Fairy,” by his classmates. His best friend, Eve, more intelligent than the guys in her class, and slightly overweight is also a social outcast, and Terry’s only friend. But life is about to change drastically for Terry when the gorgeous Adrian Vincent turns up in town. Nicknamed “The Flash” by his fans, Vincent is the star hockey player for The Rockets, and rumored to have been born in Norwich. When he asks Terry to help him fix up his grandfathers old farm, they become fast friends, and Terry finds acceptance and love. But, Terry’s happiness is to be short lived when Adrian announces that he is leaving to play hockey again, and to reunite with his lover.
Adrian got up, came around the table, and took Terry's arm. He pulled him close, wrapping his arms around him, kissing the top of his head. Terry couldn't stop shaking. The tears came, and as much as he wanted not to cry in front of Adrian Vincent, there was no stopping the tears.
Terry had no idea how long he'd stayed there wrapped in Adrian's strong arms, crying his heart out, but finally, he struggled away from him, and walked out onto the porch. A few minutes later, Adrian came out to join him, but he didn't say anything. He waited for Terry to talk.
Terry turned around, giving him a slight smile. "I'm sorry."
"Making an idiot of myself."
"You didn't make an idiot out of yourself. It's perfectly natural you'd be upset."
"Why are you being so nice to me?"
"It's easy to be nice to you."
"That stuff I said before. You don't have to be afraid, Adrian. I won't jump you in the middle of the night or try and crawl into your bed. I…"
Adrian laughed. "Terry, I'm not worried. Look at the size of me. Do you really think you could do anything to me I didn't want you to?"
Terry laughed too, embarrassed. "No. Of course not. I can be so…"
Suddenly, he felt Adrian's hand on his arm. He looked down into his eyes. "I want to kiss you. Tell me now if I'm misreading the signs because…"
Terry opened his mouth to speak. There were no words. Adrian's hand tightened on his forearm, then, he pulled him closer. Terry stumbled into his chest. He couldn't breathe. Adrian's mouth came down on his hard, a hand moving up behind his head. His mouth opened to Adrian's, seeking his probing tongue. He heard himself moan softly inside Adrian's mouth, pressing his lips harder, never wanting it to end. But it did. Adrian released him, and stepped away. He turned his back for a moment, as if he were trying to collect himself.
Terry felt like he was drugged. The taste of Adrian's mouth still tingled on his. His first kiss, the first time he had ever tasted someone's mouth. He wanted more. He wanted to kiss him again.
"Maybe I shouldn't have…" Adrian began, turning around again. "I'm sorry. I have no idea what possessed me to do that."
"Sorry? Oh God, don't be sorry," Terry pleaded. "Please don't be sorry. I…kiss me again."
Adrian laughed softly. "Okay, if you want me to. Come a little closer and…"
