Fallout (Flight HA1710 #4)
by Meredith Russell.
Can missing a fatal flight be the wake up call Harrison needs?
When Harrison Kelley is banned from getting on Flight HA1710, it seems to be the perfect ending to a crappy couple of days. Not only did he wreck a wedding, but he’s drunk way too much and been on the receiving end of the groom’s brother’s fists. Being escorted out of the airport by security was just the icing on the wedding cake.
Elijah Pettifer has lusted after Harrison from afar for years but Harrison never sees him as anything more than a friend. If he ever saw him at all. While attempting to defend what little honor Harrison has left, Elijah gets caught up in the wave of chaos surrounding his teenage crush. But missing his flight home because of Harrison’s mess might just be the luckiest thing to ever happen to him.
With a 24 hour ban imposed by the airport, and having only each other for company, the two men grow closer. But will the fate of the airplane they should have been on be the push Harrison needs to walk away from the toxic relationship of his past? And can Elijah make Harrison see exactly what he’s been missing out on because of it?

Harrison watched the bob of Elijah’s Adam’s apple as he drank. Old feelings resurfaced as he studied Elijah, his throat, his jaw, his glistening and wet lips, the way he flicked his tongue out after he lowered his glass. It’s like there was a memory trapped somewhere at the back of his mind, something about Elijah. Why did he feel like they’d done this before?
Harrison slid his glass onto the table. “When did you come out?”
Elijah looked at Harrison. “Pardon?”
“You weren’t out in high school. I just wondered—”
“Out in high school? You know I was the quiet kid. That would have been fun.” Elijah appeared tense as he sat up in his seat.
“It wasn’t so bad being out at school.” Harrison had come out in his final year. He had feared it, he remembered that, but when it came down to it, he found out who his real friends were and he remembered the feeling of freedom, to finally be who he was and be with who he wanted. Or at least as with as anyone could be when it came to Antony.
“Not for you maybe. We couldn’t all be Mr Popular.” Elijah shrugged. He probably thought he sounded bitterer than he had intended. “Whatever. It wasn’t the right time. Not for me.” He gave a faint smile. “Though I came close.”
Harrison studied Elijah’s face. Whatever the memory was, he was clearly remembering it fondly. “How close?”
Curling down his mouth, Elijah gave another shrug. “There was this one time I thought I’d outed myself.” He averted his eyes and chose to look toward the reception area beyond the lounge. “It was stupid really.”
“I doubt that.”
Elijah hesitated. Choosing his words carefully, he said, “There was a boy at school. I liked him, loved him, maybe.” He sighed and turned back to Harrison. “He didn’t even know I existed.”
“Are you sure?”
With a faint smile, Elijah lowered his head. “I’m pretty sure. We shared some friends and we were on one of the sports teams together so we’d end up hanging out, and would get invited to the same parties. And yet we were like strangers.”
Harrison pursed his lips as he remembered back to high school. “You did cross country, right?”
Elijah quirked an eyebrow. He seemed surprised. “Yeah.”
“I did that for a while. Dropped out though. I was better with short distances, track and field events. That and somehow I made it onto the lacrosse team. They must have been desperate.” Harrison laughed.
“Antony probably put in a good word.” Elijah didn’t say it with any venom, but the statement was clearly a dig.
Harrison didn’t rise to it, and switched the conversation back to Elijah. “So, who was he?”
“The guy you loved.”
