He can levitate objects and predict the future, but no one knows his powers...until he finds a man worth fighting for.


Chase Bender moves objects with his mind and can read the immediate future. If anyone found out the man behind the mask had a lot in common with the regular man character, they wouldn't believe him. What's a man with super hero abilities supposed to do to get a date?

Dylan.
He shouldn’t say anything. Should keep on walking.
“Hi there. Do you come here often?” Hell. Of all the things he could’ve said, Chase picked one of the worst pick-up lines…ever.
Dylan’s eyes narrowed. “Do Iwe’ve met, haven’t we?”
“I’m sorry. I’m horrible at manners sometimes.” Chase offered his hand. “I’m Chase. We met at the Riley party.” He dropped his voice to a whisper. “I’m Mind Bender.”
“Oh!” Dylan’s eyes widened. “I hadn’t recognized you…but I bet that was the point.” His cheeks burned bright red and the color spread down his neck. “Can I say that was a good show, or will I get you into trouble?”
“Won’t get me into trouble. I appreciate the kind words.” Chase nodded to the cart. “I needed to get a few things. Care to walk with me, or are you nearly done?”
“I’m trying to get my shopping done while Nathan’s at swim camp.” Dylan gripped the cart. “The kid is a fish.”
“He’s your only child?” Chase pulled up beside Dylan and walked the rest of the way down the frozen food aisle.
“Just one. My partner and I couldn’t decide on another one.” Dylan’s blush deepened. “It’s a long story.”
“But I bet it’s a good one.” Chase missed being able to converse with other adults. The people at the store were okay, but they weren’t Dylan. The spark from the party hadn’t been in his imagination. He and Dylan seemed to be able to talk quite well.
“The story has its good parts, but there are bad parts, too.” Dylan stopped. “How much more do you have to buy?”
“Truth be told, I’m done.” Chase grinned. “I didn’t need much.”
“If you’re done, do you want to grab a cup of coffee? The little shop allows carts. I’ve only got a few more things to get.” Dylan flexed his fingers on the cart handle. The indentation of a wedding ring was evident, but not deep. Divorced? Split up? Chase wanted to know and yet, he didn’t want to ask.
“I’d like that,” Chase said. “I’ll pay for my things while you finish, then meet you at the coffee shop in, what, ten minutes?”
“Sounds good.”
Paying for his items didn’t take the entire ten minutes. For once, the lines at the store moved quickly. Chase tucked his change into his wallet. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d gotten through the line in less than fifteen minutes. He pushed the cart to the coffee shop. Most of the tables were empty and one of the booths was free. He pushed the cart behind the booth and plopped onto the wooden seat.
His skin prickled. Being around Dylan heightened his senses. What was it about the dad that kept him on the edge? He eased his phone from his pocket and switched the ringer to silent. If anyone needed him that bad, they could wait. As he sat there, the salt shaker began to levitate. Oh fuck. He grabbed the glass container and held it to the table top. No, no, no. His powers weren't allowed to go haywire. They weren't.

Finding the love of your life is hard, especially when you’re young and in the movies.

Jonathan Reynolds came to Cleveland, Ohio to break into the movies. He might not have the most orthodox methods, but he’s got the drive. He wants to be a star and shed his small town image. He’s no kid, although at twenty-one, he’s not very experienced. He’s happy with only having a few lines during a crowd scene—until he meets Sean Banks. Maybe it’s time for this virgin to come of age.

Sean Banks has been there, done that—on everything. The former child star grew up in the glare of the spotlight and beat his addiction to drugs and alcohol. But at twenty-four, he’s considered all washed up. He knows the role in this high budget action picture will catapult him back into the spotlight. He’s not ready to open his heart again, until he sees Jonathan. The young man captivates him. Can the jaded former star and the up-and-coming actor find common ground and passion between the sheets? Or will their love be relegated to the silver screen?

“You picked him?” Sean rested his hands on his hips. He hadn’t been able to get the blond-haired man out of his brain all night. When he slept, his dreams revolved around the man. The moment he saw the call sheet, his day brightened. He’d never been big on younger men, but he did have a thing for dating his co-stars.
“Yeah, I did pick him,” the assistant director said. She rolled her eyes. “You cannot possibly be attracted to him. Aren’t you and Daniel having a thing?”
“Daniel? No.” He wasn’t interested in Daniel Young. Good God, they’d known each other since the first Ducky juice drinks commercial. They’d been friends, yes, but partners? Not going to happen.
“Then what’s wrong about this one? Too immature? Victor saw him act yesterday. He said the kid was pretty good.” She flipped through the sheets on her clipboard. “He only had a couple of lines, but even I bought into what he’d said.”
“Because you like all the actors,” Sean said. “Look, if he works out for the kiss scene, then cool. If not, I’m not doing a love scene with him. I don’t care.”
“You made eyes at him at the bar last night.”
“Him?” He feigned shock. Yes, he’d made eyes at the kid. Who hadn’t? He was gorgeous. Still, he refused to jump into bed with just anyone...again. He’d been through that phase already. Rehab helped him see everything differently, especially when he’d come so close to dying. He shuddered. The overdose opened his eyes so wide. He’d been destructive and careening out of control.
“Lover boy, you’ve got to meet him and pretend to have been lovers for years. Don’t yell at me. Suck it up.”
“You’re so nice to me.” He scanned over the call sheet. They’d do the read in half an hour and the run-through shortly afterwards. Maybe they wouldn’t get along and he’d be able to get away from the kid. Sean strolled downstairs to the second apartment set.
The director and the cameramen were already on site and chatting. The kid stood patiently to the side, apparently absorbing everything Victor said. What a newbie... Sometimes challenging the director added to the value of the movie.
“I’m here,” Sean announced. “Everyone have their scripts?”
Victor narrowed his eyes. “Stop the diva shit.”
“I’m ready.” The younger man stepped forward. He offered his hand. “I’m Jonathan. I’m happy to meet you.”
“Jonathan.” He shook hands. Either Jonathan truly had manners, like he’d displayed the night before, or he was the world’s best brown-noser. “So you’re playing Owen?”
“I believe so.” Jonathan inched away from Sean. “I’ve read through the script a bunch of times. I think I’m ready.”
Sean bit back a response. Part of him wanted to say, we’ll see. The rest of him wanted to see what the kid could do.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Playoffs Edition ~ Week Two


Playoff time is the right time for fun quotes. I stand by my statement. The commentators really need to think about what they're saying when they say it...or before.

To keep us occupied until next season, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

Both times there’s been an open spot for him to get it.
And he’s taken advantage.

Working the back line.
Because he keeps finding those open spots.

A natural pick.
He’s had a lot to choose from, so this is good.

Trying to get open and frees him up completely.
Well, he tried too hard. No one wants him. Sad. 

They kept things clean. Always a plus. 
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

Bringing that one in.
Because he’s had his eye on her all night.

Has a chance to move.
Well, yeah. He set his sights on her and is taking the opportunity.

Here he is in the slot.
Because he got the chance.

Forced him out.
Denied!

Hooks it up.
Second chances are good.

Got the chance to potentially be the free guy.
Since she turned him down after all, I’m not shocked.

And now for the doozy. Who knows why they say some of these things, but someone needs to play it back for them from time to time.

Slides through pressure.
Snicker. Isn’t that the best way to do it? Tighter the better?

Since you're reading this, I'll bring this up. There's a Bengals player whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer. A portion of his jersey sales are being donated to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital to help with cancer research. It's a great cause. I've ordered mine. Want to know more?

Thank you!

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Playoffs Edition


So the season is over for the Bengals. We blew it against the Colts. It had to happen. We've got the worst record once we get into the playoffs. But there is still lots of football to play and plenty of quotes to be gathered.

To keep us occupied until next season, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

"Punched in."
He's ready to go and get dirty!

"open against his ear."
Hmm. The ear is a usable hole, now? 

"working that whole field."
Since he's punched in, I'd say work that field. 

"he finds his tight end."
Field working has worked.

They kept things clean. Always a plus. 
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

"Loves to escape the pocket."
It's one form of prevention that sometimes works. Kudos for at least trying.

"He has the physical tools."
And those tools are appreciated. 

"is the size the reason they weren't to connect?"
If he was too small for the hole, slippage can happen.

"Big hands."
To make up for the small problem with connecting.

"Smothering the center."
He can't take much more! 

"All kinds of great pressure."
Because he's being smothered. Let go a bit and let him breathe.

And now for that Doozy of the Week. I love these. These are so much fun.  

"That offensive line does a great job of blowing."
It's a talent. They're very proud.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback ~ Week Seventeen


So the miracle of a win against the Broncos happened. I don't know how it happened (okay, I do because I saw the game), but I'm glad. Unfortunately the exact opposite happened against the Steelers. Blah. We've made it into the playoffs, but this won't be easy. 

While the game goes on, here are the honorable Mentions from last week: 

"knows they are all bunched up inside."
The fuller the better.

"a tight window."
not after being all bunched up inside. 

"showed his lateral range."
He pulled out of the bunched up, tight window. He can. 

"trying to pound it in."
It's a tight window. It won't work!

All righty then. Interesting.
Now on to those football funnies of the week.

"limited the package."
If it's tight, then yeah, some limiting is needed.

"Got his hands on his flag."
And what is he planning on doing with it? Seeking out that tight window, I assume.

"A couple dominating."
Snort. What are they dominating?

"A real wide hole."
That must be what's being dominated.

"a late release."
Because it's all stretched out!

"needs confidence before the last half ends."
Yeah, because a lack of confidence means he won't be able to perform.

And now for that Doozy of the Week. I love these. These are so much fun.  

"Put it on the money."
Well, after it's stretched out and with lost confidence, putting it on the money sounds like it should be the right thing to do.

Landscapes
