Blurb: In the dead darkness of the underwater there were lights.
Coming home for summer break, two film school students, Bradley and Tag, decide to shoot a staged UFO encounter video, one that could potentially generate a lot of attention and a lot of clicks on YouTube. Unexpectedly for both of them, during the filming they accidentally discover a real alien presence in the dark waters near their coastal home town.

Excerpt: Bradley rolled his eyes. Cooper only called him Bradley, and not Brad, when he was challenging him. Meanwhile, Cooper bared his beautiful chest and that seemed to attract attention. Now that neither of the guys felt like a five-year-old, a man’s muscular torso became a subject of leering.
“Anyone?” Cooper asked, looking at guys, expecting them to start taking their clothes off too. He couldn’t believe they were being such stiffs all of a sudden.
“Come on, Cooper, the water is cold. You’ll freeze your balls off,” Veronica began but he interrupted her.
“Ah-ah-ah!” he uttered, holding a finger to her mouth. She grimaced.
“If you squares are too afraid of some mildly cool water, I’m not even gonna bother trying to persuade you,” he simpered and without missing a beat pulled his shorts down.
He was not wearing any underwear under his shorts and his 6-inch flaccid dick pretty much tumbled out of there and hung for everyone to observe. He knew they would stare so he allowed a moment for them to fully take it in, not feeling even a bit embarrassed about his nudity. His dick was cut and perfectly shaped, dangling between his legs like a thick appetizing sausage. And as if that wasn’t enough, Cooper ran his hand across his torso, in a slow erotic way. His dick reacted to this, perking up a little.
They watched, enchanted.
Cooper licked his lip and bit it, his dick assuming a fully horizontal position at that. Then, he looked at his penis, as if commanding it to rise. And it did, obediently. In a matter of seconds, like in some twisted magic show, Cooper’s dick rose to its full length of 8.5 inches, eliciting a gasp from the audience. No wonder Cooper was so cocky.
He crossed his hands and wiggled his eyebrow.
“You know guys, if any of you get an erection, I hear some cool water is pretty good at bringing it down,” he quipped. Bradley and Danny exchanged looks. They both slipped off their clothes briskly and plumped into the water. Veronica approached Cooper leisurely. He gave her a sly look and smiled, proud of himself, for several reasons.
“Okay, you got me,” she admitted. “Now get in the water, I’ll be right behind you.”
He approached the rail and stepped up onto the bench, allowing himself a peek from the corner of his eye at Veronica taking her clothes off, and then he jumped, splashes of water showering Bradley’s and Danny’s heads.
The water was freezing at first. Scream-like laughter escaped guys’ mouths as they shivered and shook, flailing their limbs, working their muscles, trying to get warm. In about five minutes it worked, and the water seemed to get a lot warmer. They swam around the yacht for a while, underwater floodlights making the water transparent, and their naked bodies luminous, almost fluorescent in it. They fooled around and splashed each other, giggling. Cooper climbed aboard several times to make somersaults and jump-dives, his flaccid dick dangling between his muscular legs teasingly. Then, bored with that, he ventured off into the dark, swimming far outside the reach of the floodlights, and Veronica followed him.
Danny swam closer to Bradley, closing the distance between them, translucent seawater allowing him to see Bradley’s private parts almost clearly and vice versa.
“I’ve never swum in the ocean at night before,” Danny said, drawing short gasps of air, his lips quivering from cold.
“It’s pretty cool, right?” Bradley breathed out, restraining himself from looking at Danny below the water level. This was the first time Danny took his shorts off and bared his slender beautiful body completely. That was exciting.
“Yeah, it’s pretty amazing,” Danny said. “Also it’s so fucking cold.”
Bradley laughed. “You wanna get out? There’s a big blanket in the cabin.”
“Hell yeah,” Danny said and began rowing towards the small ladder in the back of the yacht. Bradley followed him, allowing himself at last to glance at Danny’s naked butt. As the two climbed aboard, making a conscious effort not to stare at each other, just peek once or twice maybe, just from the corner of the eye, Bradley and Danny slipped into their shorts energetically. Bradley was about to go into the cabin to bring that blanket as he heard Veronica scream.
“What the fuck is that? What is that?” she shrilled.
Danny and Bradley rushed to the rail and what they saw in the water stunned them.
“Veronica?” Cooper shouted concerned.
“Do you see this? Can you fucking see this?” she screamed the way she would if she had suddenly noticed a snake twining around her ankle. But it wasn’t a snake. Below Veronica’s feet, deep underwater there was a light glowing. It was a brightly red sphere of light, shimmering in the current, its incandescent rays reaching out towards the surface, licking Veronica’s and Cooper’s toes.
