The Quiet Moments - Sam  Singer I know this is a short story but even after reading this I still have no idea who Alex and Nick are aside from they are already in a relationship (obviously) and that their names are, in fact, Nick and Alex. Given from Nick's POV in present tense, this short story is one long description of a blow job. I would have liked it a bit more if I'd have known who these two actually were. If they were characters taken from another of Singer's books, this story would have probably been more appealing.
