7 lines from Ardent Fire:
They wrestled briefly, laughing. The hat fell off when Morello pinned Benedetto to the bed by the shoulders. He sat on him to hold him still and tightened his thighs to keep Benedetto from rolling him off. As he gazed into the man’s laughing eyes, struggling to keep him pinned and helpless for kissing, he had a glad heart. If he had accomplished anything, it had been to make Benedetto love him a little more. Time would tell if their desire and lust for one another would abate.
