Jesse Keller has no shortage of women who want to sleep with him. He's a strapping, yet sensitive twenty-two year old artist who oozes muscled sexuality. But nineteen-year-old Emma is his only best friend. When she comes to him pleading for him to take her virginity, he has no choice but to coldly refuse her.
Unwilling to risk the best thing in his life, their friendship, Jesse prepares to tell her that he will be leaving town to study in Paris, but her beauty begins to color his fantasies of painting her beautiful nude body in all manners of innocent and seductive poses.
Either way, whether through heat or absence, their unfailing friendship is about to be tested.
This novelette is a complete story and can be read independently.
