“The Opposites”

Author TM Smith


Book 1 – In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and

the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having

come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the

twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability

to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A

new society is born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of

the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control

of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul

mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya

falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret

unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of

progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

A Note from the Author:

I’ve taken three scenes from Opposites that were cut short and elaborated on the shenanigans that

ensued. I also focused more in the beginning on the relationship between Cirian and Rian, to give

readers a chance to know them and their inner workings better.

**Warning, The Library is a novella set in the same world as Opposites. It’s an adult dystopian M/M

novella that includes consenting and explicit sexual relationships between gay couples**

Music is a huge part of my writing process, and there are songs that take me where I need to be

to write… and then there are songs specific to certain characters or chapters in the book. Early on

there is a scene when Maeve, Tanis and Kaden are en route to the palace and Maeve is taking in her


Every time I hear Celtic Dream I think about this particular chapter. Very whimsical, fresh and new. Both

Aiyan and Raven play the violin, and Aiya plays the piano, so there is a lot of instrumental music I listen

to when I’m writing around them. Rain on the Pond is a song that is mentioned twice in the book,

Lament has its own chapter, and Sirtaki is the dance they do at Aiya and Maeve’s wedding. Every song

on this playlist is directly related to something in the book, in some fashion.

Excerpt 1

Meanwhile in the forest, Aiyan stood in the shadow of the tree. His bow was cocked and ready as the deer trotted

into view close to the stream. Kaden stood to his left directly behind the tree, watching the intensity in his features

as he stalked his prey. His jaw was set and his brown eyes sparkled, the muscles in his arm were tensed and solid

as he held his bow in place, taking aim at the deer. His mouth was just slightly upturned on one side forming that

devilish, crooked grin Kaden had come to love more than anything.

Kaden thought back to the first time they kissed and that first night alone with Aiyan in his room, his body held

firmly between Aiyan’s and the wall as he ran his hands down Kaden’s body and nipped at his ear. Instinctively

he reached out and ran his thumb along Aiyan’s jaw line just as he released the arrow. The sound of metal hitting

flesh as the arrow penetrated the deer’s soft skin could just be heard, and then the unmistakable thud as the now

lifeless animal hit the ground.

Aiyan stepped to the side and pinned Kaden against the tree, cupping his crotch in his hand tightly and crashing

their mouths together. Again, instinctively, Kaden moved into his touch and his lips, moaning softly. Aiyan smiled

into the kiss and whispered, “Kaden, love, you’re killing me.”

Kaden pulled back and laughed. “Me?!” I think you need to look again my prince, I’m the one pinned to this tree

while you….” he moaned again and

closed his eyes, leaning back into the tree as Aiyan squeezed gently. He leaned in and kissed his neck then sucked

at the sensitive flesh there.

“Soon, M’anam. The Mehndi ceremony is tomorrow, and then the wedding, and then…” He let the sentence linger

in the air as he ran his nose across Kaden’s cheek, bringing their lips together for another kiss. They settled into a

more appropriate, affectionate stance just before Rian cleared his throat from behind them. Kaden flushed slightly

and Aiyan turned to see his father smiling at them. He jerked his head back toward the palace motioning for them

to follow, and they did, reluctantly.

“Ahhh, that’s cold!” he exclaimed when Kaden actually did accidentally drop a spoonful on his bicep. He placed the

bowl on the ground as he pushed Aiyan to lean back against the bed and began lapping up the sweet treat. Aiyan

lay his head back and closed his eyes. “Don’t start something unless you intend to finish it.” He placed Kaden’s

hand over the bulge in his pants that was growing harder, and thicker with every kiss.

Kaden grinned wickedly, “Oh, I will.” He purred.

“Oh, my… Kaden.” Aiyan groaned as Kaden ran the palm of his hand over his cock, the friction from the pants

under Kaden’s grasp causing Aiyan to grow even harder. Aiyan opened his eyes when he felt the cold steel at his

bottom lip, opening wide so Kaden could feed him a spoonful of ice cream. He dropped the spoon back in the bowl

as he dove in for another kiss, the ice cream melting from the heat of their sweeping tongues.

He followed the trail of liquid that was trickling out of the corner of Aiyan’s mouth and caught it with the tip of his

tongue, before diving right back into the warmth of Aiyan’s mouth again. He pulled back with a sigh staring into

Aiyan’s eyes and placing a few more chaste kisses on his lips.

Kaden sat the bowl of ice cream on the floor beside them and then, with his palms on the floor to brace himself,

leaned into Aiyan. Their lips brushed briefly and right as Aiyan leaned forward, Kaden pulled back. He shook his

head, “Don’t move and don’t close your eyes.” He saw the muscles in Aiyan’s upper arms twitch, and he thought

Aiyan might ignore him. Then one corner of Aiyan’s mouth slid upward and he gave Kaden that lopsided grin with a

nod of his head.

Eyes wide open so no emotion could be hidden, Kaden leaned in and traced Aiyan’s lips with the tip of his tongue.

He did this several times before flat out licking Aiyan’s lips from the bottom to the top, just where his nose started.

He then traced Aiyan’s lips again, but this time with his entire tongue instead of just the tip. Aiyan’s chest began to

rise and fall quicker than before, but he stayed still as Kaden had requested.

A slight breeze from the open window blew into the room causing the candle at the foot of the bed to flicker.

Kaden saw the golden light from the candle through Aiyan’s eyes and he pulled back slightly, cocking his head to

one side, just watching and waiting. Aiyan took a chance and flicked out his tongue, barely nipping Kaden’s bottom

lip, watching Kaden’s eyes to gauge his reaction.

When Kaden didn’t make a move to either pull away or come closer, Aiyan repeated the tongue tracing on his lips.

He wasn’t nearly as resolute as his husband and soon the desire that had been building reached a crescendo. Aiyan

leaned forward and stole a quick kiss, biting down hard on Kaden’s bottom lip.

Kaden growled then grabbed his face in his hands and shoved his tongue inside his mouth more forcefully, sucking

and biting at Aiyan’s mouth. Aiyan let out a long, loud moan of pleasure. Kaden was already teetering on the

edge of oblivion and Aiyan’s responsiveness pushed him over. He grabbed Aiyan by the shoulders and moved him

down onto the floor underneath him. He captured his mouth again with another rough and fiery kiss as they begin

grinding into each other.

Kaden leaned up and slowly drug Aiyan’s pants down his legs, pulling them off then tossing them over his shoulder.

He devoured Aiyan with his eyes as he stood and removed his pants as well. He hovered above him for several long

minutes, tracing his fingers over Aiyan’s lips then down and along his jaw line, moving slowly down to his chest

circling each nipple.

The corner of his lip twitched as he reached for the bowl of ice cream. Aiyan shivered when Kaden first ran his

fingers through the bowl, then painted circles around his already pert nipples with the cold, wet confection. He

threw his head back and gasped when Kaden followed that sensation with his warm, wet tongue. Circling his

nipple, licking the ice cream off, then biting down gently on the nipple itself. Kaden parted Aiyan’s legs with his

and gently pushed his knee against his now throbbing cock. Kaden gently nudged Aiyan’s balls with his knee and

watched his face as Aiyan’s eyes squeezed tight and his mouth hung open in a silent moan.

“So sexy.” Kaden whispered.

Aiyan walked through the garden, violin case in hand heading toward the bench that sat in the center. Sitting, he

removed his violin and stroked the strings. He hadn’t played in days and needed to feel the instrument in his hand

as he poured his pain into the music. It was the only outlet he could think of at the moment that wouldn’t cause

someone else bodily harm.

His life had changed drastically over the past several months. He met and married his match who, thankfully,

turned out to be his soul mate. He knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that he loved Kaden like no other almost

from the minute he laid eyes on him. He realized just how much and how much he stood to lose when Kaden was

kidnapped by his uncle. An uncle he didn’t even know he had until after they’d rescued Kaden and brought him

back home where he belonged.

He heaved in a deep breath and brought the instrument up to rest on his shoulder, running the bow across the

strings a few times to adjust the tone. Then he closed his eyes and let it all go, let all of the pain and anger flow out

of his body and into the music. He thought of Kaden inside the palace, in their room packing for their impending

trip to House Devi. He thought back to the first time they’d made love after the incident. How loving, tender and

gentle he was with his husband; who was still broken and bruised from his captivity.

For a moment he felt the anger seeping back into him as his thoughts strayed to Gorilla man, his uncle, and the

violin screamed out a note in agony. He released a breath and regained his composure, moving his thoughts back

to Kaden and how they’d leaned on each other in those days and weeks when they first returned to the palace.

The melody leveled out as Aiyan stopped trying to control the emotions and just let them flow freely, the insanely

beautiful whine of music filled the night air.

Kaden closed the last suit case and lifted it off the bed, carrying it over and sitting it by the door with the others.

He stood upright when he thought he heard a shrill cry coming from outside their bedroom window. Their

bedroom was just off one side of the garden when you looked out the window, which made sense as the garden

was Aiyan’s favorite place to be. Kaden walked over and threw the window open, closing his eyes and smiling

when he realized what it was he’d heard.

Kaden quickly made his way out of the palace and out into the garden, hell, he would have just jumped out the

window to make the trip quicker if he thought he could do it without hurting himself. Kaden rounded the corner

and stopped, soaking in the sight of his husband, completely oblivious and completely sexy.

Aiyan’s eyes were closed and the tip of his tongue just barely escaped his mouth, as his head jerked to the side

occasionally with certain notes of the song. Kaden could see how relaxed he was surrounded by the things he

loved most. His exquisite garden, his violin and his husband. Every emotion Aiyan was feeling played across his face

as he felt them, Kaden just stood still and watched. The emotions blended flawlessly with the notes; anger brought

on a loud shrill note and a scrunched up face; happiness brought on a flowing, sharp squeal and a slight smile; and

then sadness was the lightest note of all as a tear trickled down Aiyan’s cheek.

Aiyan’s eyes flew open when he heard a low crack as Kaden moved toward him, stepping on a twig. “Oh, sorry, I

was just letting off some steam.” Aiyan said, moving to put away his violin.

Kaden moved quickly over to him, “No, please… don’t stop. It was beautiful my prince, please play more for me.”

Kaden slid onto the far corner of the bench, smiling slightly as Aiyan smiled back at him.

“You like to beg, don’t you?” Aiyan said playfully, that crooked grin taking over his face. It was true; Kaden had

said those exact words to him the night they met, here in the garden, the first time Aiyan kissed him. “No, please…

don’t stop.” Aiyan put his instrument away and then just sat there, silent, staring at the ground. Kaden could not

only see, but feel the war of emotions raging inside him. The bond they had seemed to have been there since that

first meeting, when they saw the same vision of them kissing on the bed. And it only grew stronger when they

were separated. Truth be told, their bond had saved Kaden’s life when Gorilla man had thrown him down that


Kaden reached up and pushed Aiyan’s hair back behind his ear, stroking the lobe with his fingers softly as he did.

“My prince, tell me what troubles you.” Aiyan didn’t speak, didn’t look up at him, he didn’t even flinch. Kaden

scooted a little closer and ran his hand down Aiyan’s arm, joining their fingers together. Still, Aiyan didn’t so much

as squeeze his hand back, not even acknowledging Kaden’s attempt to placate him. Kaden brought himself around

in front of Aiyan, wedging himself on his knees on the ground between Aiyan’s legs, staring up at him, refusing to

be ignored.

0They stared into each other’s eyes for several long, intense moments. Kaden toyed with the right words to say,

and decided words weren’t what was needed right now. He leaned up and kissed his husband. He just held his lips

to Aiyan’s briefly, not attempting to deepen the kiss. When he pulled back Aiyan’s eyes remained closed and he

took a few shallow breaths.

“Don’t shut me out Aiyan, not now, we’ve been through too much for you to give me the silent treatment.” That

crooked grin was trying to make an appearance Kaden thought, as the corner of Aiyan’s mouth twitched slightly.

“There is nothing you can’t tell me. I know you want to deal with these emotions and this anger you feel on your

own, but that is the problem Aiyan. Have you thought that the reason you can’t get past this is because you are

trying to do it alone? You aren’t alone Aiyan, I am here, right here in front of you, begging you to…….” Kaden didn’t

get the rest of his sentence out before he was grabbed and hauled up into Aiyan’s lap. Aiyan’s lips came down on

his hard and fierce as Aiyan attempted to tongue fuck him right there on the bench.

Aiyans fingers dug into Kaden’s shoulders and he poured everything he was feeling into the kiss. Kaden moaned

into his mouth and melted into his touch as the kiss ignited a fire inside him. The combination of his own hunger

coupled with Aiyan’s left his head spinning. Aiyan pulled back, gasping for breath, when he opened his eyes Kaden

saw that they’d turned gold around the rims and he smiled. Aiyan leaned forward until their foreheads were

touching, still breathing heavy.

“Okay Kaden, okay. Let’s go back to our room and talk.” He panted out between breaths.

“Just talk?” Kaden whispered. Aiyan barked out a laugh and smacked his ass, which caused Kaden to yelp. They

barely made it into their room before Kaden quickly divested them of their clothing. He pushed Aiyan back against

the door and climbed up him, devouring his mouth. Aiyan spun them around as he lifted Kaden up off the floor,

and slammed him up against the unyielding wooden door. Kaden wrapped both legs around Aiyan’s waist and

thrust his hips up. Aiyan threw his head back and gasped when Kadens thick, hard cock rubbed up against his

own. Aiyan kissed him again, his lips as unyielding and hard as the door Kaden was pressed up against. Then he

proceeded to fuck Kaden into oblivion, right there up against the bedroom door.

Kaden woke in their bed with the soft touch of Aiyan’s fingers, trailing down his back and over his ass, then tracing

back up the path they’d just taken. “Are you awake?” Aiyan whispered.

“I am now.” Kaden just chuckled.

Aiyan didn’t speak again for a while; he just ran his hands along Kaden’s skin, setting it on fire. Finally, he let out

a ragged sigh, “I’ve never felt the kind of anger I feel toward him Kaden, and it scares me. I swear sometimes I

feel like the hatred will consume me. I want to kill him, I want him to suffer. What does that say about me Kaden,

for Christ sake, he’s my uncle?!” Even if the touch of Aiyan’s fingers on his skin hadn’t gone from gentle to rough,

Kaden could feel Aiyan’s anger inside him through the bond they shared.

Kaden rolled over onto his back and Aiyan laid his head on his chest, he ran his fingers through Aiyan’s hair

comforting and calming him all at the same time. “It says that you are my husband, my partner and you will do

anything to make sure I’m safe. I would do the same for you. Do you feel better, now that you told me this?”

Aiyan nodded but didn’t speak. “Then that is enough for now. I love you Aiyan and we will deal with this together.

Everything, always together.” Aiyan smiled and Kaden could feel the curve of his husbands lips on his skin, which

made him smile in turn, remembering.

Those three words took Aiyan back to the past, to the night they decided to get their named tattoos. When

Aiyan first broached the subject just days before their Mehndi ceremony, Kaden had balked at the idea. But then

when Aiyan and Raven showed Kaden drawings of what Aiyan was suggesting they do, Kaden couldn’t deny the

sentiment in the gesture.
