The hand inched its way into the elastic waistband. Pale, freckled, longâ€”fingeredâ€”the highâ€”res video feed showed every detail. The loose pink fabric of the uniform stirred as the hand moved underneath, fondling an invisible but obviously substantial erection. Number 3218 began with a leisurely rhythm, in no hurry, but before long he could not hold back. The hidden hand jerked back and forth, agitating the cloth as though a small animal were trapped inside.
A darker spot appeared on the garish background, a dampening that made Rafe lick his lips. If only he could seeâ€¦ The bulb of the manâ€™s sheathed cock strained against the cloth, distorting it into a taut peak. Rafe imagined the owner gripping his shaft, thrusting into his fist. Sure enough, the manâ€™s hips tipped as he arched up off his cot. It wouldnâ€™t be long now.
Shit! The surveillance camera flicked abruptly to the next bunk, scanning the face of its sleeping occupant then roving down the length. Number 3219 lay on his side, curled into a foetal position, his wrists crossed over his chest. His bony ankles stuck out from tooâ€”short uniform pants.
The focus shifted again. Rafe leant back in his chair and massaged his temples. The flicker of the monitors was the only light in the dim control room. Staring at them hour after hour made his head feel like a chain gang was smashing rocks inside. He reached for his coffee and found nothing but cold sludge at the bottom of the mug. Damn. He wasnâ€™t sure he had the energy to get up and pour another.
The oversized digital clock above the door read 0317. Three more hours before Turk arrived. Once again, he cursed himself for taking this gig. The joint might have been easier. Still, if he managed to last another six months heâ€™d be free, convictions purged from his dossier, able to start fresh.
How did he know theyâ€™d clear his record, though? It wasnâ€™t like theyâ€™d given him reason to trust them. That fancy state lawyer, the â€˜public defenderâ€™, hadnâ€™t done shit. Desperate to stay out of jail, Rafe had told her everything, even spilled on his buds. Heâ€™d sworn that heâ€™d had nothing to do with the hit. What had she done? Plea bargain, my ass! Sheâ€™d got him two fucking years slaving away in this desolate hellhole.
The loneliness was the worst. Except for a bit of daily chat when Turk relieved him, Rafe might go without talking to anyone for weeks. He wasnâ€™t allowed a vidcom. The Guardians were paranoid that a resident might somehow get hold of itâ€”as if he had any contact with the pervs. But then, who would he call anyway? Heâ€™d burned his bridges when heâ€™d welched on the rest of the gang. His only family was a sister who insisted she never wanted to hear from him again. He spent his days aloneâ€”reading, watching eyePorn, or walking around the bleak perimeterâ€”and his nights staring at sleeping queers.
A few werenâ€™t sleeping, though. He turned his attention back to Monitor 15. The camera had nearly completed its cycle of the dorm. As if triggered by his scrutiny, the image switched back to Number 3218.
The guy looked young. He had thick ginger hair with a bit of a curl, a cleft chin partially covered with stubbly beard, and bowâ€”shaped lips that at the moment were parted in an obvious pant. His eyes were screwed shut. His shoulders shook with the force of his invisible strokes. So he hasnâ€™t finished yet, thought Rafe, his own cock stirring in his trousers.
The lens panned across the manâ€™s bare chest, surprisingly wellâ€”muscled for someone with such a wiry build. The creamy skin stretched across those rounded pecs looked smooth and soft. Rafe imagined trailing his fingers down the shallow valley between the manâ€™s breasts, pausing to tweak one of the ruby nipples. The ache in his groin grew more insistent.
The camera reached 3218â€™s crotch. Rafe gasped. The manâ€™s cock reared up above the rim of the silly regulation trousers, strong and solid. One disembodied hand jerked furiously at the shaft. The other cradled his balls. Rafe had a perfect view of the fat, crimson cap, poking out from the clenched fingers. He sucked in his breath as a geyser of white erupted from the slick bulb. Creamy dollops of cum rained down the pink background.
It was only an instant. The camera moved on. Rafe yanked down his zipper. His own cock sprang out, ready and eager. He smeared his thumb across the tip, gathering moisture, then curled his fingers around its throbbing length. God, that felt good! He stroked from the bulb to the base, flicking the little ridge on the underside each time he returned to the top. Pleasure struck him like lightning, stealing his breath. His dick swelled further. The pressure built as he worked harder and faster, sprawled in his chair with his eyes closed, pumping into his hand.
That manâ€”he had guts, to jack himself off like that, in full view of the spy eyes. If the Guardians happened to review that particular vidfileâ€”or if Rafe reported himâ€”the roboâ€”guards would strip him and toss him into the hole so fast he wouldnâ€™t know what had hit him. But Rafe wouldnâ€™t squeal. No, heâ€™d enjoyed the show too much.
He looked down, watching his massive hand work his thick, black cock. He imagined his blunt fingers clutching the pale, proud stalk of Number 3218. Heâ€™d take control of the brazen young queer, make him spill his jizz all over Rafeâ€™s hand. Then Rafe would force those ripe lips apart and stuff his own cock inside. Heâ€™d fuck that handsome face until he shot his load down the guyâ€™s throat. No matter how rough Rafe got, 3218 would love every minute.
Rafe was Hâ€”negative. No genetic markerâ€”he knew he wasnâ€™t queer. That didnâ€™t stop him from picturing 3218 kneeling in front of him, swallowing his wad. Just a fantasy, right? Not even surprising, given the fact that he hadnâ€™t seen a woman in the flesh in eighteen months.
He let himself go further. As his dick pulsed in his fist, Rafe mentally flipped the inmate onto his stomach. Rafe had never seen 3218â€™s ass, but he could picture itâ€”firm, swelling curves, white as milk. Heâ€™d pull those tender cheeks open and ease into the tight passage between themâ€”slowly, so slowly, feeling the heat build and the muscles clamp down on his invading cock...
Orgasm slammed into him like a speeding truck. Cum raced up his stalk and spurted halfway across the control room, jolt after jolt shaking his body. The violent release left him drained and shaky. He jacked off a lotâ€”practically every day, sometimes more than once. Heâ€™d never come like that before. Pleasure echoed through him for ten minutes afterwards.
His eyelids drifted closed. Damn. He couldnâ€™t afford to have Turk show up and find him sleeping. With a sigh, he grabbed his mug and levered himself out of the beatâ€”up desk chair. Just two more hours.
He settled back into his seat with a brimming cup of the caffeinated swill that passed for coffee here. Taking a bitter sip, he scanned the video displays. Everything seemed quiet.
He realised suddenly that he was avoiding Monitor 15. The hell with that! He tuned in to sequence of images flowing from Dormitory 32.
The camera had finished another cycle. Once again the lens framed the youthful face of 3218. He appeared to be sleeping. Well, he deserved the rest. Rafe felt an uncharacteristic twinge of sympathy. If he thought his own situation sucked, what about poor 3218? Stuck here indefinitelyâ€”pretty much forgotten by everyone except the Guardiansâ€”with no recourse and no company but a bunch of perverts. Hemmed in by barbed wire, electrified fences and a moat full of toxic waste. That wasnâ€™t living. I couldnâ€™t stand it, Rafe mused. Iâ€™d kill myself.
