This is my entry for
's “Summer Night Dream Contest” [link]
organized by The chibi Shuei hugs a Peach Bun, while dreaming of a steamy summer night with his beloved Koyu.
This picture is also the illustration for my BL fanfic ”Overheated”
, so the explanation is going to be somewhat convoluted!
In a mundane summer afternoon conversation that touched on Peach Buns, Shuei's thoughts started wandering …
He looked at Koyu's flushed face. As a child, Shuei adored Peach Buns, and not just for the taste. He loved running his thumbs over the smooth, rosy, soft and plump bun cheeks. Shuei had always thought Peach Buns resembled the pink chubby cheeks of infants.
And then Shuei had a sudden realization. Twenty years on, and in lust with his male best friend, the voluptuousness of Peach Buns looked a whole lot more like butt-cheeks ...
Even steamed buns take on sexy overtones when one is overheated!
