“Lucky Star,” by Grace Teague from One Lucky Night

When Charlotte woke up, the room was gray with pre-dawn light edging the window curtains. A heavy arm wrapped around her waist, a hard chest propped up her back and someone breathed evenly against her neck. It was comforting and alarming all at once, until she remembered she’d asked Tommy to stay.  

Gingerly, she felt around, trying not to wake him up. She shifted delicately, tracing up his bare forearm until she reached the short sleeve of a t-shirt. He snuffled slightly, but was otherwise fast asleep. With the back of her hand, she touched his stomach, and brushed against a plush waistband. So he’d borrowed some flannel pajamas and one of her shirts—this hadn’t gotten too weird. He hadn’t gotten naked when she was passed out and crawled in bed with her, which would have made her rethink her crush in a serious way.

This was a signal, though. It had to be. Platonic friends didn’t spoon. Of the many times they’d spent the night at each other’s dorm rooms and later apartments, they’d never slept wrapped around each other before.

He grunted and pulled her flush against his body. She felt something hard nudging the cleft of her ass, and didn’t have to wonder what it was. Charlotte reminded herself that his erection wasn’t for her, or necessarily about her even though it really, really felt like it was. He mumbled something against her ear. She strained to hear her name amid his mostly incoherent words, but she could only pick out the words, “yes,” “fuck,” and “robots.”

Realizing he was probably dreaming about sex bots made her giggle.

He groaned.

“Was I snoring?” Tommy scooted away from her to almost the edge of the mattress. She pretended not to notice.

“Something like that.”
