This is my third attempt, and I've finally managed to incorporate the prompt words, so I got very brave and posted atflashslash . On re-reading, I realised that the setting was probably inspired bymikes_grrl ’s Locked Up.
Prompt: rage transparent fork balance
Gene had never been in such a rage before. He couldn’t believe what the fucking superior git had done this time. The bastard just never gave a single thought to anyone else.
He wobbled, trying to regain his balance. Last thing he needed at this point was to fall down the hole into the muck. He shifted very slowly, trying to see through the tiny gap that was all he had left.
“Oy! Are you going to be much longer down there? I could die waiting!”
“Fuck off, Tyler! I’ll be there in my own sweet time and not before. You got yourself into this. You want me to get you out of it, you be nice to me. Now shut up and let me concentrate.”
Slowly, he inched his way forward across the plank. It creaked, making him worry for a moment that it wouldn’t hold his weight. Now was not the time to be conceding Tyler might be right on that point, dammit. He ignored the little voice telling him that a man of his physique was not designed for the high wire, or in this case the low plank, and kept on shuffling.
He also ignored the little voice that was telling him rubbing himself, or certain parts of himself, against a rough old plank on his way to rescue his very own annoying damsel, was a Very Bad Idea indeed.
Reaching the end of the plank he crawled carefully off the end, trying to avoid further stimulation of certain parts of his anatomy as he brushed the grime and splinters off his trousers.
“Gene!” The voice was fainter now; perhaps the idiot really was in trouble up there. Gene moved faster now, edging aside boxes and piles of rubbish. Peering through the final obstacle, a semi-transparent sheet of plastic, he could just make out Tyler crouched in the corner, and his stomach lurched.
His half-willing erection subsided instantly as he saw the garden fork impaling Sam’s bloodied arm to the floor.
