Moving On - Halloween Themed Story - An Oldie but a Goodie!

Looking for Halloween themed stories? Here's a brief look at a short story I wrote a few years ago titled Moving On. Excerpts and a summary of reviews for all my stories are available on my website.

Brandt's been trying to rebuild his life, but it's been a difficult year. On this special Halloween night, maybe Graeme can help both Brandt and himself move on.

On Halloween, Graeme accompanies the love of his life, Brandt, to the annual costume party. This year, though, Brandt isn't dancing with Graeme, he's dancing with a handsome stranger, and Graeme couldn't be happier. On the most mysterious night of the year Graeme has one chance to give his beloved the best gift of all, and he makes the most of it, from the first dance to the final farewell.

An Excerpt

Graeme watched from across the room as Brandt danced slowly with a nice-looking man decked out in a purple, crushed-velvet pimp costume. There were some wild costumes at the Halloween dance party tonight and Brandt was looking extra hot in a tight sailor boy costume.

Graeme didn’t remember seeing the man Brandt was with before, but he’d taken notice of the guy tonight. He’d watched the purple pimp checking out Brandt and finally working up the nerve to approach Brandt for a dance. The man was clearly on the prowl for a hookup, and if there was one thing Graeme wanted tonight, it was for Brandt to finally get laid again. Brandt really needed to move on with his life.The man had been polite and pleasant. He seemed like a nice guy. Not at all predatory—pimp costume notwithstanding. He’d be a good choice for Brandt tonight. They looked good together.

It had been just over a year since Graeme had left Brandt, and it had been a very hard year on Brandt. Hell, it had been hard on both of them, and if Graeme could fix it, he would, but he didn’t know how.

Brandt had been doing pretty well these past few months, but he still wasn’t getting out like he should. Graeme was glad to see that their friends, Jason and John, had been able to convince Brandt to get out of the house to attend this party with them.

As Graeme watched the couple dance, the purple pimp started putting moves on Brandt, squeezing Brandt’s ass and pressing their hips together. Brandt reacted quickly, placing both hands squarely on the man’s chest and heaving. The man let go immediately.

Shaking his head, Graeme had to stop himself from crossing the floor to try to talk some sense into Brandt. Wouldn't do any good, anyway.

The song ended and Brandt stalked to the edge of the dance floor, looking wretched. The purple pimp watched him go, looking confused as hell. Fuck.

Graeme moved closer to Brandt, wanting to be near former lover. He desperately wished there was something, anything, he could do to help Brandt, but what? He'd already tried everything he could think of.
