    Thanks for lots of things in this chapter. For Michael and Blaine, of course; but more importantly for the steadfast and unflinching care CJ brings to Brad in Alex Minsky. I enjoyed the many other scenes, but these stand out to me.
  7. Thank you. I'm happy you enjoyed Changes. I appreciate you taking the time to read them both. I hope you enjoy anything else you choose to read. Thanks again.
  8. good morning Sir

    Alo Chapter 25

    Driving towards the station airstrip, I turned onto the track leading to it, and continued past, on a small rarely used track, until we came out onto the main station track heading north. “Very sneaky” Greg commented, and as we approached the junction that leads to Wedding Hill, Stephen’s Surf Break and Elle’s Beaches, we stopped just past the junction on the right-hand tack. We put in 4 steel posts, with three levels of reflector tape and one of the signs, before continuing on north, bending right at the junction to Maggie’s beach, I stopped a few metres past the junction and climbed out to survey the damage, before continuing on to the next paddock gate, just east of Pelican Point. From the gate, we were on a large rise, with a clear view of all the burnt land to the west and south. “Put a No Entry sign, north facing on this gate, and some reflector tape, as we will lock this gate, so no one comes any further south of here” I said to Greg. Once we had done this, passed through the gate and locked it, I drove down the north side of the fence line towards the coast, where the fire had stopped just a few hundred metres short of the fence. Where the fence stops, just 200 metres short of the water, we stopped, and began putting up steel posts every two metres, all the way down to the low tide mark, and we strung reflector tape at three levels between the posts, and placed a No Entry sign on one post, just 5 metres up from the high tide mark. Returning to the main track, we continued north, till we came to a side track on the left, which we followed, till we reached the beach again, just down from Sandy Point, where there are clear tracks that follow close to the water, heading further south, and we set up four more steel posts across this track along with reflector tape and just below a junction on another track, we did the same thing. “We will have to patrol this area closely over Easter, I don’t anyone camping south of these posts we have just put up” I said to Greg, and once that was done we headed back to the main track again, and set up some more posts and tape across the track, before continuing north to 14-mile camping area, where I was pleased to see Chris and Anne, getting settled in, back at their camp site. “We have locked the gate just up from Pelican point, and posted a no entry sign there, as the fire burnt land can be seen just south of that fence line, we have also put up a whole lot of steel posts and reflector tape across tracks just below Sandy Point, and on the main track, just south of Sandy Point. I just said to Greg just now, that we will need to keep a close eye on that area, to make sure no one camps south of those marker posts, and that everyone is camping on the east side of the tracks. Campers will also want to camp on the beach here at 14-Mile, which is no longer permitted, no matter who they are. I don’t want anyone going up the Maud’s Landing track, and we will put ups so posts and reflector tape across it shortly, and with the other track just a bit closer to the coast, we will put up a barrier, just 50 metres before it links up to the Maud’s landing track, which is about 680 metres up, this will give everyone plenty of space. I think we might put some single posts up with tape wrapped around the top of them, to make additional camping sites, come with us please Chris, and we can work out where they will be, so you know too” I said, and we went to the Maud’s Landing junction, and put up some posts to block off that track, before coming back and going up the other track. Over the next half an hour we had blocked off the north end of the track, and marked out an additional 14 camping sites, which we named A to N, with each site being 40 metres apart, like the others have. Back at Chris and Anne’s camp, Anne served some cool drinks and a light lunch for us, and we sat down in the gazebo to relax. “Can you come down to the office tomorrow morning please, and I will give you a stack of station mud maps, which I will adjust with the restricted fire area clearly marked, plus I will give you $50 worth of change in small notes and coins for those campers who don’t have the right change, and some new portable toilets and shelters, that should be arriving tomorrow” I said to Chris and Anne. After a short meal break, we thanked Anne for lunch, before Greg and I set off again, this time heading 5 kms east, till we reached the main gravel station road, and turned south for 20 kms, till we reached the main station access road, and turned West for the homestead, 8 kms away, which is 10 kms longer than going along the coastal station track. Once back at my office, I checked the computer for any emails, and at the bottom of the page and advertisement popped up, I was about to close it when I saw that it said Nerren-Nerren & Meadow Stations for sale, so I clicked on the link to find out more. When I discovered that the first of two adjoining stations, is just 145kms north of Northampton, I began to take a lot more interest in the two stations for sale. While Nerren-Nerren Station Homestead was just a few hundred metres off the highway 94 kms north of Galena Farm in Adjara, the Meadow Station homestead was just under 5 kms east of the highway, and just 55 kms north of Nerren-Nerren Homestead. I was now glad that I had signed only a one-year lease on the family farm, and knowing that I only had one-month left on the lease at Galena Farm, ideas started to build in my mind, and I smiled, before picking up the phone and calling the number for the accountant in Carnarvon. After a twenty-minute discussion on my idea to buy Nerren-Nerren and Meadow Stations, the accountant informed me that it was a good idea, and to leave it to him to put a proposal together. After the end of that call, I sat in my chair with a big grin on my face. “Someone is a happy man” Sue said as she walked in and brought me out of my daydream, and I began to chuckle. ”Oh it’s nothing, and I can’t say anything about it at the moment” I commented, as a ding from the computer, indicated a new email, and I frowned, when I saw who it was from, and I clicked on it to open it. “Department of Parks & Wildlife, Headquarters, Perth. Dear Mr Templeton, Sorry for the late notice, it has been decided to have to P&W rangers in the area during the Easter long weekend, and we ask if you can accommodate them from during this period. They will brief you on their arrival later this evening”. “What is the huge frown for?” Sue asked me. ”We are hosting two Parks and Wildlife Rangers over the long weekend, can you ask Troy and Rebecca to prepare two rooms at the backpackers for them please” I replied. “Not a problem, but I need to warn you that with them included, we only have two rooms left at the backpacker” Sue replied. “Well, I didn’t expect that, but it is good for business” I responded, smiling. At 8am, the next morning, I heard a vehicle approaching, then another, and I dashed outside to see both Colorado’s leading a convoy of three trucks and carrying the new buildings, and a crane. “Morning boss, look what we found parked out at our front gate” Dave said with a big grin, and I just laughed. “The main house for Dave and Sue is to go on the slab of the original homestead, and have it so the front is facing the sheds please, the other one, I have not decided, as that will be my home away from home” I said to Dave and Matt, who had just climbed out of his Colorado. “What about onto of Wedding Hill” Matt suggested. “For one thing the truck wouldn’t even get up there, as it is too sandy, and the other is that the fire burnt area is off limits to everyone, including station staff, actually, I think where the old backpackers use to be, so I am still reasonably close by, and the slab is still there” I replied. “Right, I will go and sort out my new home, and Matt you can organise the boss’s new dig” Dave said, and he went and spoke to the crane and two truck drivers, and by lunch time, the new main house was in place and connected up to power and plumbing. After Lunch, the crane unloaded a dozen solid steel frames in the shape of a box, that is 1 metre in diameter, and I was not sure what they were for, as I went down to watch the installation of my new home, with Dave and Matt now coordinating it together. “By the way guys, we will have a station mechanic starting work on Wednesday next week, his name is Jack Langley” I announced. “I know Jack, I went to boarding school with him in the city, a really nice chap, lost his wife a few years back, and he has a son – Brody, who would be… about 16 now, I’m actually Brodie’s godfather” Dave said. “Well that is good to hear, I will have Matt and Greg move into the apartment permanently, and Jack and Brody, can have the staff cabin, down where the cabin use to be” I responded, happy to get a good reference from Dave. “Sounds good to me boss” Matt said to me, smiling. “That’s good, as you will need to handle any after-hours phone calls” I said, and Matt groaned, which made Dave and I laugh. “What’s so funny?” Greg asked when he walked up to us, to watch all the activity. “You know, I think I know what those steel things are, they are feet, to raise my house off the ground” I said. “That is exactly right, Mr Templeton” the crane operator responded. Once the feet were put in the right place and secured to the concrete slab, the house was lifted into place, with the front facing West, and it was secured to the solid steel feet, before the steel stairs that are 3 metres wide, where locked into place. An hour later all the power and plumbing were connected, and I now had an operational new home, with solar power, and while this was happening, the lads and Dave were unloading the two Colorado’s and trailers, from everything that was purchase, except the tank, and I asked them to install the Fire Water tank at the airfield first, so it is up and ready, in case of another fire. Once this was done, the small tank was installed at the new main house, so it has a plentiful supply of fresh water, with a temporary small desalination plant, working 18 hours a day, to keep up with the demand. By now it was getting late in the afternoon, and I suggested leaving the tank and kayaks for the Backpackers till tomorrow, but Dave and the lads insisted on getting it done today. The portable toilets and chemicals were stored away until half of them would be taken up to 14-mile, and the rest would remain at the visitor’s centre. As it wa getting dark, I was in my office doing paper work, when there was a knock on the door to the visitor centre, and I thought about ignoring it, then decided to go and see who it is, and I found two P&W rangers standing outside. “Mr Templeton, we are very impressed at what we have seen, as we came up the track from Gnaraloo Station, especially with the repositioning of camping sites to only on the east side of the access track” one of the rangers said, who appeared to be a highly ranked P & W officer, as he had two pips on his shoulder. “Thank you gentlemen, unlike the previous owners, I wish to work closely with Parks & Wildlife and the traditional owners of this land, and with concern to the Ningaloo reef, I decided to enforce more restrictions” I responded, and this is when I noticed that they were actually Marine Park Rangers, as I let them inside and locked the door behind them, before leading them to the conference room. My name is Tony Ellington, and I am the district Superintendent based in Exmouth, and this is Marine Park Ranger Scott York, who is based in Carnarvon. Tomorrow we will have one of my Marine Park lads from Exmouth travelling down and will be based in Coral Bay for the long weekend” the senior of the two men said. “Nice to meet you both” I replied, as I indicated for them to sit. “As per directions from Headquarters in Perth, we have a number of signs to put up, to try and reduce the amount of vehicle on the beaches on this section of the coastline, on the way up we found three spots between the Lagoon and Black Moon Cliff, where we have erected signs up, prohibiting any vehicle access to the beach” Tony Ellington said to me. “Well sir, that is good news, although it will be hard to police on a busy long weekend like this, which is one of our biggest” I commented. “That is why myself and two Marine Park rangers will be patrolling the station the whole weekend, and any infringements will receive an immediate fine” Tony said to me. “You can add a 6 month ban from entering the property, onto that infringement, I already have 24 people on a list of banned persons, from that wild party that was held here, and one person for putting me into hospital for assaulting me” I said. “Very well we will do that for you” Scott said as he took some notes in his pad. As you may be aware, we had a fire arson attack on the station, and it has burnt a heck of a lot of coastal land, from here to as far as Pelican Point, and we have already put out signs and steel posts to block access to that area, and all staff have been told to keep out of it too. The gate on the access track at Pelican Point is padlocked and tracks south of Sandy point have also been blocked off, to prevent visitors from getting near the burnt fire region” I stated. “Well, it sounds like that you have everything organised, we have already checked into our accommodation at the hostel, which is very impressive too, so we will no doubt, see you around during the weekend” Tony said as he and Scott stood up an shook my hand, before leaving. After closing the centre, I checked in with the lads, before heading over to my new house, and after a light meal, I cleaned up and went to bed early. The next morning, at sunrise, I was up early and after a light breakfast, Angus and I walked to the administration centre, leaving my car parked under the shade of a tree, with the windows open a little to keep it from getting too hot inside. Once in the office, I quickly made up a list of all the station staff, and printed out three copies, before jumping into the buggy, I headed south towards the hostel, and on hearing my approach, Troy and Rebecca came out to greet me.
  11. This looks like a hard read. That is not a bad thing at all. Hard work, good fruit. Interested in seeing what comes next.

    The big problems i have with Sam's present are it's parked outside his apartment, his fingerprints are on the back door handle and tarp, and he didn't report it when he found it. He's likely his father's heir and there are probably other who know they weren't on the best of terms. These could present some issues for him. Other than this concern, Sam may find a bit more peace. Desmond and Gabriel make a good pair. Gabriel might be the only mate Desmond could choose who isn't helpless enough to worry about and will never be repulsed by his work.. And the sex is epic.

    Awesome chapter. I’m glad Bryan and Phil are getting the help they deserve. Karen will enjoy mothering two more boys.
  16. This was a pleasant surprise. It was the first time I've read any of your stories; and I got to read Changes and Changes Again in succession, without any waiting time in-between. It was a lovely story and beautifully written. I'm looking foward to reading the rest of your stories. Thank you very much for sharing your talent with us. All the best to you!

  18. Brody and Jace have been inseparable best friends since the first day of kindergarten. By the time they reached high school, they were boyfriends hiding their love from pretty much everybody. They're full of hope and plans for a future together when graduation's just a few months distant. But lying about a weekend away leads to both families discovering their secret. All the choices that led them to that moment are complicated by a flurry of heat-of-the-moment choices made by both sets of parents. In the end, Brody and Jace make a few more choices that may just alter the future for everybody.

    Chapter 21

    Sunday morning, January 21st, Joe and Doug woke up in their hotel room about 8:00 AM. Joe, looking at the flight tickets, "Our flight is scheduled to leave at 11:40 this morning, so we need to be at the airport by 10:40, I guess we’d better get dressed and check out of here." "What time do we arrive in Charlotte, and who is picking us up?" "Arrival time is 4:25 PM, and we probably need to check with folks back home to see who is picking us up, "Joe replied. "Let me call DJ," I said, "Maybe he knows." I placed the call, but got no answer. I then tried calling Karen and she answered. "Doug, please don’t tell me your at the airport already!" Laughing I said, "It sounds like you aren’t anxious to see us return? Actually, we didn’t know if any of you knew when we were returning? I tried to call DJ a minute ago and got no answer." "I can understand that," Karen replied, "he babysat for Steve and Val last night. They had a function in the city and returned late. We all went to bed before the boys returned, and I have no idea what time the boys got to bed, but I know it was very late. I’m sure they’re sleeping in this morning." "Karen, our flight is scheduled to arrive at 4:25 PM this afternoon, is anyone able to pick us up, or do we need to get a taxi?" "Doug, the boys are both working this afternoon, but Carl is off, and is planning to pick you up. He just needed to know the time, and you just gave it to me, 4:25, right, and how was the cruise?" "4:25 PM is the scheduled time," I confirmed, "and our honeymoon was wonderful. We’ll tell you all about it when we have more time, we need to get breakfast and get to the airport here by 10:40 to check in. Tell Carl we really appreciate his service." "I will relay that," Karen replied, "you all should be back here around 6:30 PM, I’ll tell Carl to bring you back here, and I’ll plan supper for the five of us, we can heat the leftovers for the boys, when they get home from work." "I think it will work out better, Karen, if Carl drops us off at the house. We can unload our luggage, and then drive out to your place for supper, and we’ll have our own transportation back home." "Sure, that’ll work," Karen replied, "I’ll plan supper for about 7:00 PM, see you then." They both hung up. * * * * * * * * * * * * The boys slept really late Sunday morning. Jamie had awakened about 8:00 AM, gone to the bathroom, and quickly crawled back into bed, cuddled up to DJ in a spooning position with his cock next to DJ’s crack, and his hand wrapped around DJ’s BBC, and fell back to sleep. About 10:30 AM DJ woke up with an erection, not certain if it was just morning wood, because he did need to pee, or was a result of Jamie’s hand holding his cock, even though Jamie was still asleep. DJ tried to remove Jamie’s hand, which caused Jamie to awaken, and he moaned a little. "Jamie," DJ spoke softly, "I gotta go pee." "Baby," Jamie replied, "let me take care of that hardon first, and then it will be easier to pee, and I can get an early morning snack." DJ let Jamie do his will, knowing that as bad as he needed to pee, Jamie would get him off quickly, and of course, he loves the feeling of his cock inside Jamie’s warm mouth. DJ was right, only about 3 or 4 minutes of Jamie’s mouth nursing his cock, he was feeling his orgasm rising from his balls. He wasn’t going to warn Jamie, he was just enjoying the sensation. Jamie felt DJ’s body stiffening, and from hearing DJ’s moaning, he knew he was about to hit pay dirt. DJ started to pulse, sending his spunk shooting into Jamie’s mouth and throat, and Jamie received it willingly, swallowing every drop, and moaning in ecstasy. Now Jamie had a boner, and DJ was deflating. DJ then slipped off the bed and headed to the bathroom. Jamie was leaking precum, and used it as lube, slowly stroking his hard cock, knowing that he wanted, and needed to drop a load. DJ returned, and noticed that Jamie was stroking it. DJ, jumping back on the bed, "Let me take care of that!" Immediately, DJ pushed Jamie’s hand away, and took the beautiful hard member into his mouth, tasting the precum and enjoying the feeling of his boyfriends cock in his mouth. Both of these young men seem to enjoy giving each other blowjobs, so much quicker and easier that having anal sex. Jamie had already been to the bathroom earlier, so had no pressure on his bladder and it took DJ quite a bit longer to have Jamie on the verge of climax, but never the less, he did succeed. Jamie was feeling his orgasm approaching, and DJ pulled off. "Baby, I was right on the edge, and you stopped!" Jamie whined. "I know," DJ replied, grinning, "I could feel you were very close." DJ went back down and worked Jamie’s cock for a couple more minutes, and heard Jamie breathing raggedly, and pulled off again, teasing his boyfriend. "DJ, you’re torturing me, I need to cum! I was right on the edge." "Ok, my love, I’ll finish you off," DJ appeased his lover. Finally, for the third time, Jamie’s orgasm approached, and DJ let him cum, taking every delicious spurt in his mouth and down his throat, and Jamie shot the most spunk he’d ever cum at one time. "That was a nice mouthful," DJ commented, as the two boys hugged and shared a passionate kiss, tasting each other’s mouths. "Jamie, for some reason, it seems like every load you shoot tastes better than the time before." "Maybe it’s getting flavored from yours," Jamie replied, "I’ve always loved the sweet taste of your cream, I could easily take your load several times a day!" DJ, snickering, "I kind of think there’s a limit to my production, I doubt that I could cum more than two, maybe three times in a day, and I couldn’t even do that every day." The boys pulled on their boxer-briefs and made their way to the kitchen, joining Granny and Carl at the table. Karen fixed the boys some breakfast. Carl mentioned that he needed to leave before 3:00 to pick us up at the airport. Right after breakfast, Jamie wiped the table off, and the boys sat at the table and attacked their homework that is due tomorrow morning. Karen fixed a couple of sandwiches for DJ to take to work, and DJ left for work about 2:30, and Jamie left at 3:30. Right after DJ left for work, Carl headed out toward the airport. * * * * * * * * * * * * The flight came in right on time, Joe and I got our baggage, and we were soon on the way home in Carl’s Vue, which he drove as the back seat is more comfortable than the CRX. "Joe," I stated, "I have an appointment with Steve Jones on Wednesday, and I want you to go with me." "What’s that for?" Joe asked. "Just precaution," I said, "at my age, I could go at any time, and I want to be certain that you and DJ are properly taken care of. Steve wants to write up a will, so we can be certain, and make sure my papers and beneficiaries are legalized, just in case." "Doug," Joe responded, "DJ is my son too, there is no way I would ever leave him out in the cold, or without a roof over his head, heaven forbid that anything should happen to you. Wednesday is a bad day for me though, as Mom’s flight back is scheduled for Wednesday, and I need to take her to the airport." Carl is grinning to himself, tempted to spill the beans, boy, do these newlyweds have a surprise, or shock, coming! They don’t know about Aggie’s change of plans yet, and he is not going to undermine her bombshell. She will most likely drop the bomb at dinnertime tonight. Carl is waiting to see Joe’s and my reaction, when she tells us. We arrived at our house about 6:00 PM. Carl helped bring our baggage into the house and he and Joe carried it to our bedroom. I turned the thermostat up to 72, as I had turned it down to 50 before we left because nobody would be staying here while Joe and I was gone. Joe started the Taurus, to make sure it started and to let it warm up. Carl headed home, and a few minutes later Joe and I headed to the Seldon’s home. The aroma in Karen’s kitchen was overwhelming. A few minutes later we were all sitting, Aggie, Karen and Carl, Joe and myself. Karen had prepared baked ham, mashed sweet potatoes, corn muffins, and succotash, with chocolate cake for dessert. "Mom," Joe stated, "I need to see your return ticket so I will know what time to pick you up Wednesday and take you to the airport." "Joe," Aggie said, "can you get a refund on that return ticket? We’re not going to need it." "Why not?" Joe queried, "you have to go back home." "No I don’t! I’m not going back to California, I’m staying here." "But you have family there, and your apartment, you can’t just stay here with Karen and Carl, indefinitely," Joe argued. "Only until February 1st," Aggie replied, "when I can move into my new place. I’ve already paid the security deposit and the first month’s rent, at the ‘Golden Age Senior Community’ right here in town." "Mom," Joe inquired, "what prompted this decision?" "Several things, Joe, I feel much closer to my North Carolina family than I do my California family, I want to get to know my son-in-law a lot better, and I have fallen hopelessly in love with my two grandsons, I guess that’s most of it." "Two grandsons, Mom?" "Yes, two, I know Jamie is not really my grandson, but I’ve taken ownership of him, as well as DJ, they’re both such fantastic young men, and I adore them both! DJ was ecstatic, when I told him I was staying here, and not going back." "Well Mom," Joe said, "that was quite a shock, I wasn’t prepared for that, but, Welcome to North Carolina! As for the refund on the ticket, I’ll ask, but it’s doubtful." Joe and I both smiled. I was actually quite happy that Aggie had decided to stay here. My own parents were long ago passed on, and Aggie was the only ‘parent’ I had, even though it was through my marriage to Joe. I also realized that Aggie and DJ had formed a pretty strong bond, and her deciding to stay would likely be good for both of them. "Joe," Aggie asked, "could you call your sister, and ask her to pack my stuff and ship it out here?" "Mom, I can do that now, it should not be too late as it is only about 5:30 PM there. What things do you want her to pack and send here?" "Only the important stuff, the top right draw of the desk has all my important papers, banking information, my insurance policy, my retirement and social security information, it’s all in that draw." Aggie continued, "Of course I want my clothing, and there are some photo albums, and my jewelry box, and maybe my cosmetics and tell her to check the walls, as I have some photographs that I have hung on the walls and I don’t want to lose them. That’s about it." "I think it might be best to have your stuff sent here, to Carl’s address. It may arrive before you move into your new room, and if it comes afterwards, any of us can bring it to you." Joe remarked. Joe made the call, explained to his sister about his mom’s change of plans, and asked her to pack the stuff and ship it to Carl and Karen’s address, and thanked her. She wanted to know where Mom would be living, and Joe explained about the ‘Golden Age Senior Community’. His sister said that she thought it seemed like a good place, and Mom would likely be well cared for there. Also it would be one less burden on her and she was pleased to be relieved of the obligation, but she would also miss her. She offered a belated ‘congratulations’ on Joe’s marriage, but Joe knew that she and her husband had never condoned Joe’s lifestyle. About 9:20 PM DJ bounced through the back door into the kitchen and threw his arms around both me and Joe, hugging us fiercely and kissing my lips and Joe’s cheek. "God, I missed you so much, I’m glad you’re home!" DJ blurted. "We had a great time," Joe said, "but we missed you guys too, I wish you could have been with us, you and Jamie would have had a blast." About 10 minutes later Jamie arrived, and was almost as emotional as DJ, giving us a very warm welcome. God we love these boys. Joe spoke, "Karen, Carl, we sure appreciate all you do and have done for us, but I’m ready to take my ‘HUSBAND’ home and get us to bed. I don’t know about Doug, but I’m scheduled back to work tomorrow. Goodnight, everyone." "Goodnight, Dad’s!" DJ exclaimed, "Oh, Dad, Randy has you scheduled for 3:00 PM tomorrow, and Jamie and I have our Monday off, after we get out of class!" DJ and Jamie smiled. Joe and I said our good-byes and headed home, and Aggie headed off to bed, after kissing the boys goodnight. DJ and Jamie ate the baked ham and trimmings that Karen had re-heated for them, finished with the Chocolate Cake and milk, and headed to bed, as 7:00 AM will be approaching way too soon. With arms wrapped around each other, the two boys drifted off to sleep quickly. On Monday morning, January 22nd the alarm woke Jamie and DJ at 7:00 AM. The boys jumped into the shower and washed each other, dried each other and pulled on clean boxer-briefs. They then headed to the kitchen, kissed Granny and Karen good morning, ate breakfast, dressed and left for school about 8:30 AM. "Jamie, we haven’t hooked up with Matt for lunch since the spring semester began," DJ lamented. "Well, for one thing, we haven’t been eating lunch at school, except on Thursdays, and Matt doesn’t have any classes on Thursdays. Maybe we should make a date with him, and eat together one of the other days, but we need to let Mom know." Jamie continued, "I’m wondering if Bryan got everything, or if he needs our help again today, I guess we’ll find out at noon." When their computer class let out, the boys headed to the Tracker, and saw Bryan’s car parked just one car away, with another bunch of hefty bags filling the back seat. Bryan was standing next to the Tracker, waiting on them, and smiling. "Got another load ready for transfer?" Jamie asked. "Nope!" Bryan exclaimed, smiling, and with tears escaping his eyes, " I’m delivering this one in person, I’m all moved out guys, and I’m forever indebted to you, I could never have done this without your help. I need to show you something, though." Bryan opened his phone app, and showed the boys where almost 200 unanswered calls had been received, some from his father, and mostly from his mother, just since 9:00 AM this morning. As he showed us, his phone was ringing, and he ignored it. "I would guess that my parents have been blowing up my phone ever since Mom found my note on the bed. I need a new phone, or at least a new phone number. I’m turning this off, until I can get to the phone store and get a new number, right now I’m heading to the Shady Inn, to see my love!" He powered it down. On the way to the Shady Inn, Bryan’s boy hole was starting to twitch in anticipation. He wondered if Phil had found the lube he’d packed, or maybe bought some. He decided not to take a chance, and stopped at a drug store and picked up a bottle of personal lubricant, then headed on to the motel, and parked in front of room 120. Bryan walked to the door and was about to knock when the door swung open, Phil grabbed Bryan and pulled him inside. Without even closing the door, Phil threw Bryan on the bed, and the two young men frantically kissed and lapped at each other’s lips, their arms wrapped around each other. Their tongues wrestled, and both of their cocks got hard, quickly. It’s been so long! "Baby," Bryan asked, "have you got any lube?" "No, maybe we can find a substitute, Bryan I want you so bad!" "I thought you might not have any, I have some in the car, give me a minute," Bryan stated. Adjusting the bulge in his pants, he headed to the car and grabbed the bag from the drug store, coming back into the room he closed and locked the door. The two young men went berserk, and started unbuttoning and unzipping each other’s clothing, and tossing their clothes on the floor. In about 60 seconds they were both naked, and hugging each other tightly. Bryan dropped to his knees and took what he could of Phil’s rather large cock into his mouth, enjoying the thrill. "Baby," Bryan cried, "my hole needs this, I need you inside me!" Phil grabbed a bath towel and laid it on the bed, and had Bryan on it, on all fours, his beautiful buns in the air. Phil grabbed the lube, and started to lube Bryan’s crack, and hole, pushing two, then three fingers inside Bryan’s chute, stretching his hole, then lubed his own cock. Bryan’s whole body was trembling in anticipation, as Phil teased Bryan’s orifice with the tip of his cock, just pushing in a little. "For god’s sake, Phil, gimme that fuckin’ cock, I need you in me!" Phil pushed the head of his prick through the sphincter, and Bryan yelped. Phil just stopped, letting his cock rest, right where it was. "Are you OK, sweetheart? I don’t want to hurt you." Phil said. "I’ll be OK," Bryan replied, "I think my boy hole might have shrunk a little from lack of usage, just let me get used to you again, and give me a little more of that joystick!" Phil started to fuck Bryan, nice and slow, pushing in just a little further with each pump. "I kind of forgot," Phil commented, "just how awesome your ass feels, wrapped around my cock, Bryan you’re the best!" "I’m getting used to you now, give me a little more, Phil, I missed this so much, and it feels so good right now. I didn’t mean that the way it came out, I did miss this, but I actually missed everything about you, your kisses, your caress, just the feel of your body next to mine, knowing how it feels to go to sleep with you holding me, just—everything." "Bryan, are you—close?" "Somewhat, what are you thinking?" "I want to swallow your juice, can I pull out a minute, and suck you off?" "Yeah, I guess, but I can’t last long, you better hurry, if you’re going to do that, cause I’m almost ready to blow my wad, and neither one of us has even touched my cock!’ Phil pulled out, turned Bryan onto his side and pulled Bryan’s manhood into his mouth, and only slid up and down with his mouth for about 1 minute and Bryan inhaled, holding his breath, and exhaled, shooting spurt after spurt of sperm into Phil’s hungry mouth. Feeling and tasting Bryan’s climax made his own climax feel even closer. "Please Phil, get back inside of me! I want to feel you fill my bottom, hurry, I need you so much," Bryan begged. Phil, egging, "Are you going to cum for me again, baby?" "I might, if you hit my sweet spot, oh yeah, right there, I think I’m going to…………" Phil put his hands around Bryan’s hips, holding him tightly around his cock, and feeling his orgasm start to explode into Bryan’s gut, which triggered Bryan to cum again, a smaller amount this time, that just squirted onto the towel. Phil started to pull out… "NO!" Bryan blurted, "not yet, you feel so good inside of me, stay a while." Phil left his big cock resting in Bryan’s ass, and relaxed his body on top of Bryan, laid his face against Bryan’s back and started sobbing. "Phil? What’s wrong?" Bryan asked. "Nothing, now," Phil replied, "I was just thinking how close I came to losing you, forever. I can’t even imagine trying to find someone new, after all the years we’ve loved each other, I love you Bryan." "Phil, I hope you know that I love you too, and I hope we never have to be apart again. I want to spend the rest of the day here with you." "That would be great," Phil said, "unfortunately we’re now adults, and have bills that must be paid so I need to go to work at 3:00, when are you working again?" "Wednesday evening," Bryan replied, "and then Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, but I’m working day shifts on Saturday and Sunday, and don’t forget that I have classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings." "Cool," Phil countered, "I’m Three to Eleven every day, and off on Wednesday and Thursday this week, so maybe Thursday we can stay in bed all day and play! I need to get ready for work soon, shall we shower?" Phil pulled out of Bryan’s ass, and Phil’s load of cum seeped out onto the towel and they both laughed. The two boys showered together for the first time ever, as this had not been an option when they had lived at Bryan’s parent’s house, and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They hugged each other and kissed while the water streamed over their bodies. After they had dried off and dressed, Bryan told Phil that he was going to the phone store to maybe get a new phone, or at least get a new number, and he would let Phil know the new number ASAP. Phil left for Denny’s, Bryan unloaded the rest of his stuff from his car, then headed to the phone store. Once he got his new phone, he stopped at BK and ate some lunch, then returned to the Motel. On the way, Bryan is wondering what length his parents might go to try and get to him, so decided to stop by Applebee’s and give his GM, Gerald, a heads up. Bryan told Gerald that he had moved out from his parent’s home, and was staying with a ‘friend’ at the Shady Inn, and that they planned to find an apartment to share. He also told Gerald that his parents may try to bother him at work, and he did not wish to see them under any circumstance, and asked him to not reveal his new address or phone number, should they try to get it from the store. "Bryan," Gerald responded, "this company has guidelines to follow, and we never give out that kind of information to anyone, outside of police. Your privacy is secure." "Thanks, Gerald," Bryan replied, "I’ll see you Wednesday." Bryan went on to the Shady Inn, and entered their room. He busied himself, unpacking some of his clothes and putting them into the three draws in the chest that Phil had left empty. He then settled down to some homework, and when that was finished, it was still only 9:00 PM, 2 hours before Phil gets off. Bored, he turned on the TV and flicked through the channels and found something tolerable to occupy his mind while he waited for Phil. Bryan was also getting hungry again. He hadn’t talked to Phil since he had the new phone, and placed a call to him. "Hello?" Phil answered, not recognizing the number. "It’s Bryan, this is my new phone, I was wondering if you could bring us a snack when you get off work?" "Sure, baby, do you like Zesty Nachos?" "That sounds good, Phil, I’m starved." "I’ll order the full size, and if I tell the cook it’s for me and my roommate, he’ll make it extra big! If you’re thirsty, there are some Mountain Dews and Pepsi’s in that little refrigerator, help yourself, and I should be home about 11:15, I love you baby." "Love you too, I’ll see you soon." They hung up. * * * * * * * * * * * * After DJ and Jamie left Bryan, and the campus, and were on the way to DJ’s house for the first time in over a week, they were discussing the ‘Bryan and Phil’ situation. "DJ, I’m so glad my parents weren’t like Bryan’s, if they hadn’t been so loving and accepting, I wonder where we would be today." "I don’t know," DJ replied, "but I have a feeling, as quickly as we became boyfriends, we’d probably all be living with my Dad’s, If there is such a thing as love at first sight, I think we proved it true." As they drove toward our home, I called DJ and told them not to pick up anything for lunch, because I was fixing us burritos and tacos. He told me they’d be home in about 10 minutes and looking forward to lunch with Joe and me. About 12 minutes later the boys entered the back door and showed no surprise at all at the fact that Joe was sitting at the table nursing coffee and I was cooking, both of us naked except for the apron I was wearing. The boys gave us hugs, and went to their room. "Jamie," DJ spoke softly and grinning, "let’s surprise them, let’s get naked and go back to the kitchen." "Are you sure?" Jamie said, with reservation, "Ah, fuck it, it’s not like they’ve never seen us naked before." Both boys stripped, and headed back to the kitchen, displaying their naked glory. Joe snickered, and got my attention, and I couldn’t help grinning. These boys have such beautiful bodies, especially when they’re naked. "They say," Joe remarked, smiling, "if you’ve got it, flaunt it, and you two definitely have got it, so you might as well flaunt it!" DJ and Jamie looked at each other and grinned, shared a soft kiss lightly on the lips, and sat down to wait for lunch to be served. DJ got back up and retrieved the sour cream and salsa from the fridge, then got two Pepsi’s out for Jamie and himself. Joe and I were still in coffee drinking mode. The pan with the taco meat was kept warm on a burner, and a griddle was hot, to heat soft taco or burrito sized tortillas. All the fixings were on the counter, shredded lettuce, shredded Monterey Jack, diced tomatoes, and now the salsa and sour cream, so everyone could fix their burritos or tacos the way they wanted. While the boys were fixing their plates, Joe couldn’t resist squeezing both of their perfectly formed bubble butts affectionately, causing both boys to turn their heads, grinning. "Guys, I need to give you a heads up," I said, "we met a really nice young couple on the cruise from Cleveland. They’re doing a couple days at Disney, then a day or two on the West Coast, then driving back to Cleveland." "We offered to put them up for a couple nights, and show them some southern hospitality. They haven’t confirmed yet, but if they accept our invitation, they should be arriving here Thursday evening, and spending the night Thursday and Friday. Joe and I want to take them to the Waterhole Thursday night. We might need to borrow your bedroom for a couple of nights." "We kind of owe these guys," Joe commented, "Doug and I got pretty drunk Friday night, and Todd and Ryan—well—they helped us to our cabin, and put us to bed. We didn’t know what they had done for us until Saturday morning at breakfast. They’re cool guys, and I think you’ll like them." "Dad," DJ stated, "We’ll be at Jamie’s house on Tues, Wed, and Thurs nights anyway, because they’re school nights. We can put clean sheets on the bed after we get up tomorrow, and if they’re here on Friday night, we can stay at Jamie’s, but we’d like to meet them, anyway." I replied, chuckling, "Todd and Ryan want to meet you also, what are your plans for tonight?" "We might try to hook up with Matt for a while, or maybe take in a movie, or both, Jamie, call Matt and see if he wants to do a movie with us tonight—wait, I’ve still got that gift card for Red Lobster. Matt gave it to me, and said when we use it, he wanted to go with us, maybe we could do that tonight, baby, ask him." Jamie made the call to Matt, and made all the arrangements. "DJ," Jamie announced, smiling, "we’re picking up Matt at 5:00 PM and going to Red Lobster for din-din then going to the cinema and take in a movie." DJ displayed that patented smile. What’s better than sharing your night off with your closest friends! I left for work at 2:30 PM and Mike picked Joe up at just before 3:00 PM. When we left for work, the boys were sitting on the sofa, playing some games on the play station, still naked. About 3:45 they shut the machine and TV down, and showered together, then got dressed. About 4:30 they left to pick up Matt. While they were at Red Lobster, Matt asked if they could have another sleepover and Jamie and DJ said they could, maybe in a couple of weeks. The three then took in a movie, Matt sitting between the other two. They had just left Red Lobster, and elected to bypass the popcorn and drinks. DJ and Jamie were holding hands, their hands right over Matt’s crotch, If Matt had a penis, their hands right there likely would have caused him to grow a boner. Matt still enjoyed the closeness of the other two boys, and he had his arms around both of their shoulders. It was about 10:00 PM by the time Jamie dropped Matt off and he and DJ got back home. I asked if they had a good time, and they said they had an excellent evening, all the way around. DJ has to double tomorrow, and the boys wasted no time getting to bed, and I was waiting up for Joe to get home. * * * * * * * * * * * * It was just about 11:15 PM when Phil walked into the motel room, with a Denny’s bag. He reached in and pulled out the largest size of carryout container Denny’s has. Bryan was lying on the bed, wearing just his boxers. Phil set the container down right in the center of the bed. He then walked around the bed to the side where Bryan was, and smothered Bryan’s lips with his own, kissing his boyfriend passionately. Phil, at the refrigerator, "Pepsi or Dew?" "Uhhh—Dew," Bryan replied. Phil retrieved two bottle of Mountain Dew, removed the caps, handed one to Bryan, and took a swig from the other one and placed it on the bedside table on the opposite side from Bryan. He then proceeded to strip, completely, and climbed onto the other side of the bed, leaving the Nacho’s between them. The ravenous Bryan had already started to attack the Zesty Nachos, washing them down with Mountain Dew. "I guess I’d better help you with these, or I won’t get any!" Phil exclaimed. Bryan snickered, then placed his hand on Phil’s cock. "Careful, baby, unless you want some more of that tonight, you know what your touch does to it." Bryan pulled his hand back. They finished off the container of Nachos, Both boys got off the bed, Phil put the empty container back into the bag, Bryan dropped his boxers, Phil cut off the ceiling light and the two boys crawled into the bed and cuddled up, their arms around each other. "Phil," Bryan spoke softly, "I haven’t had a good night sleep since—I don’t want to even think about that night, I’m gonna sleep really well tonight. It feels so wonderful to be able to sleep with you again, baby, please hold me!" Bryan turned over and Phil wrapped his arms around Bryan, pulling him close, with Bryan’s back against Phil’s hairy chest, and Phil’s breath on Bryan’s neck. Bryan could feel Phil’s flaccid cock against his ass cheek, but it wasn’t making him horny, it just felt good. Within a few minutes, Phil could tell, from Bryan’s deep breathing that he was asleep, and not long after that, Phil drifted off also. * * * * * * * * * * * * Tuesday morning, January 23rd was pretty typical for a Tuesday. DJ awakened to his alarm at 8:00 AM and he went through the morning rituals, making coffee, getting dressed for work, cooking breakfast for himself, kissing his lover’s sweet lips and heading off to work about 9:30. Joe and I got up about 10:30, sat at the table and had our first cups of coffee and Jamie got up and joined us about 15 minutes later. About 11:00 AM my phone rang, and it was Brenda, Steve’s secretary, reminding me that I have an appointment with Steve tomorrow at 2:00 PM, and I relayed that info to Joe. Jamie, wondering how things were going for Bryan and Phil, called Phil about 11:30 AM, waking him. The three boys made arrangements to meet at Bojangle’s for a late breakfast at 12:30 PM, so Jamie excused himself, and got dressed and ready to leave. When Jamie pulled into a parking space at Bojangle’s, Phil and Bryan ran to his car to greet him, both boys giving Jamie a warm and loving hug. They walked in together, ordered their preferences, and sat at a booth, Jamie across from the other two. Bryan proudly showed his new phone to Jamie, and the two boys exchanged phone numbers. Both Phil and Bryan were excited to tell Jamie how wonderful it was to sleep together again, and to have their first sex together in almost two months! The three boys all agreed that a motel room wasn’t ideal, but was OK for now, and at least they were together and had a roof over their heads. "The money will soon be a little better," Phil stated, "as of this week I am now full time, 40 hours, so my pay will be $320 a week before taxes, so I should be bringing home about $240 or $250 a week after this next payday." "Bryan," Jamie asked, "I’m not being nosy, but, how much money do you make? I’m just trying to calculate something." "I’m only getting about 28 to 30 hours a week, most of them on the weekends. My checks are usually only about $70 to $80, but I get my tips, and that’s usually about $150 to $200 a week. What are you trying to figure, Jamie?" "Between the two of you, you’re bringing home at least $450 a week, or about $1800 a month. If you guys can save up some money for a security deposit, and the first month’s rent, you can afford a low-end, furnished apartment. It sure would be better than a motel room, and probably only cost maybe an extra hundred or two a month more than the motel room." Bryan and Phil looked at each other, smiling. Bryan, still smiling, "Jamie, you’re a genius! I think that could work, Phil, do you think we can save up the coins to do this?" "It’s gonna be rough," Phil responded, "it’ll probably take a few weeks, and we might not eat very well, but I think we can do it." "I have an idea," Jamie commented, "let me talk to my parents, they’ve been very supportive as to DJ and me helping you guys out. Maybe, after the first of February, when DJ’s Granny moves into her new place, Mom and Dad might be willing to let you guys stay at their home for a couple of weeks, to help you save up the money you need to get an apartment." "Do they know," Phil asked, "about us?" "Pretty much," Jamie replied, "Dad despises Bryan’s parents, he called them homophobes and haters, the only thing they don’t know is what you guys were doing the night Bryan’s father kicked you out of the house. They’ve become quite gay friendly, but Phil, you can’t run naked in their house!" "Shucks!" Phil exclaimed, grinning, Jamie, you must be the son of Angels, I haven’t met them, but I think I love them." "Hey," Jamie stated, "this isn’t a go yet, I need to talk to them, but Mom is like—Miss Hospitality! I’m sure that if Mom wants to have you there, Dad will agree, I’ve got some awesome parents!" "And Jamie," Bryan remarked, "I know that Phil and I have some most awesome friends, we appreciate everything you and DJ have done for us, I don’t know how we can ever repay you." "Who knows?" Jamie responded, "maybe DJ and I might get into a bind sometime, and need your help, I do know that I have to be to work at 3:00 PM, and it 2:00 now, I need to get home and change. I’ll try to talk to the parents tomorrow, after our classes, and I’ll let you know how they react." "Jamie, we need to leave also, as I have to be at work at 3:00 too." Bryan and Phil gave Jamie a loving hug, and they all departed. After their shifts were finished, DJ and Jamie went to the Seldon’s home for the night. * * * * * * * * * * * * Wednesday morning, January 24th, Joe and I got up about 9:00 AM, and had the house to ourselves as the boys were in class by now, having stayed at Jamie’s last night. I was looking, and found, my life insurance policy to take to Steve’s when we had our appointment at 2:00 PM. My phone rang and it was Todd. I answered, smiling, "Good morning from North Carolina!" Todd, chuckling, "Sending some Florida sunshine up to you, did you guys get over the cruise yet?" "We sure did," I answered, "and the hangovers are long gone too, how is everything?" "Great, we visited Ringling Brothers winter quarters yesterday, and we’re going to visit Parrot Jungle today, and leaving tomorrow, is that invitation to spend a couple nights with you guys still valid?" "It sure is, Joe and I are looking forward to seeing you, and treating you to a little southern hospitality, when are you leaving?" "We’re going to try to get on the road around 7:00 AM tomorrow morning, make a breakfast stop, and lunch stop, and we should get to your place around 5:00 or 5:30 PM." "That’s cool," I said, "I’ll have a light snack ready, and we can have dinner after we get to the Waterhole, the food is a tad pricey there, but also very good, you’re going to love the place. It’ll be a nice memory of your vacation. You have our address don’t you?" "Yep, got it saved in the GPS, Ryan and I are so ready to see you guys again, on your turf this time. Did the boys mind giving up their bedroom?" "Not at all, in fact, they put clean sheets on the bed yesterday as they would be staying at Jamie’s house Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights anyway—and now Friday also." "Ok," Todd said, "I’ll let you go, and we’ll see you tomorrow night, have a good day." He hung up. Joe, smiling, "So I guess we are really going to get to show our Cleveland friends some southern hospitality." "Yeah," I replied, "but I had to pull some strings. I got Randy to let me work tonight so I could get tomorrow night off, I told him about this appointment today and that I might be a little late. DJ is going in late tomorrow, as his volleyball class doesn’t end until 4:00 and he’ll need to shower, so he probably won’t be to work until about 5:15." "Randy said he would try to limit Friday’s deliveries to get me out by 6:00 or 6:30 PM, as we have out of town guests. DJ and Jamie are planning to come home right after their 11:00 AM class, about 12:30, and they can entertain our guests Friday afternoon, and Anthony is letting Jamie come in late, but he still has to close at 11:00 PM Friday night. Friday afternoon is about the only time Todd and Ryan can get to know DJ and Jamie. Randy was kind enough to give DJ Friday off, but I have to work." "WOW!" Joe exclaimed, "that’s a mighty tight and busy schedule, if your appointment is at 2:00 PM, we probably should leave around 1:30." It was still only about 11:00 AM, Joe and I enjoyed a leisurely shower together. After drying each other off, we laid on the bed, naked, and just relaxed, enjoying a rare period of intimacy, kissing and fondling, hugging and just cherishing the moment, well, the hour. It seemed we rarely had this opportunity, and we grabbed it, before it disappeared. About 1:00 PM we rose from the bed and got dressed, preparing to leave for the appointment with Steve Jones. We arrived at his office, climbing the one hundred steps (well it seemed like a hundred, but was probably only 25) to the second floor. * * * * * * * * * * * * Brenda greeted us, and told us to have a seat and Steve would be with us shortly. Steve came from his office a few minutes later. Steve, extending his hand, "Doug, Joe, come on in, and have a seat." He pointed to a pair of chairs in front of his desk. "First thing we need to take care of, is insurance, did you bring your life insurance policy?" I handed it to Steve, and he studied it. "The beneficiary listed is ‘Isabelle Kendall’, who is that?" "She was my Mother, and she passed away over ten years ago." "We need to get that updated, you didn’t list a secondary, so who now will be your primary beneficiary?" "Joseph V. Reynolds, my husband." "No, Doug!" Joe interrupted, it should be DJ!" "Easy guys," Steve remarked, "Convention is for the spouse to be the primary, and children to be secondary beneficiary." Joe nodded, but not necessarily in agreement. "I just feel," Joe stated, "that if anything happens to Doug, DJ will need that money a lot more than I will." Steve, smiling, "Joe, if something happens, there is nothing to keep you from giving it to DJ if you wish." Joe relaxed. "Doug, can I assume that you want to list Douglas Joseph Kendall as the secondary beneficiary?" I nodded in approval. "OK, I will fed-X this update to the insurance company, and in a few days you should receive an updated policy, listing your beneficiaries with Joe as primary and DJ as secondary. Do you have any more life insurance policies?" I shook my head no. "OK, that’s out of the way, Doug, have you ever made a will?" "No," I replied, "until recently I never had anyone I wanted to leave anything to, but now I have a husband and a son, and they both mean the world to me!" "We need to determine your assets, Doug, any real estate?" "Just my house, and it’s been paid off, five years ago." "What about financial holdings, stocks, bonds, anything else of financial value?" "I have a small savings account, around $1100, and of course the checking account, and that value varies from day to day." "Automobiles, boats, airplanes?" "I have my 2008 Toyota, which is paid off, and I put DJ’s Tracker in my name, for insurance purposes, and I owe quite a bit on that." "Doug, I’m going to suggest that you will everything, jointly, to your spouse and your son, unless there are certain items you specify to go to one or the other of them, or to anyone else." "How would that work, Steve?" "It offers maximum protection for both of your loved ones. For instance, if Joe decided to sell the house, he could not do it, unless DJ signed off, and both of them would receive half of the proceeds. In such a situation, Joe could not decide to start charging DJ rent, nor could he evict DJ, as DJ would own half of the house, and vice verse." "I might be a little skeptical," I commented, "if I thought there was any animosity between Joe and DJ, but I’ve never heard an angry word between those two. I think I like that kind of will." "Doug," Joe lamented, "DJ may only be my step-son, but I think you know that I love DJ every bit as much as you do. Steve, I just want what is best for DJ, and this seems like the most logical approach for Doug’s will." "Doug, is this a go?" Steve asked. "Let’s get it done, thanks, Steve." "I’ll have the papers done and printed by Friday morning, Doug, if you’ll come in anytime Friday, and sign all three copies, and they need to be notarized. It just so happens that we have a notary public right in the front office, Brenda will be happy to notarize them for you. One copy gets filed with the county clerks office, the other two are for Joe and DJ." "Thank you so much, Steve, I think I feel better now." "Two more things, Joe, how up to date are your insurance policies?" Joe, looking down, "OK Steve, I’ll make an appointment, but I can tell you right now, it’s going to be a replica of today." "Guys, did you know DJ baby sat for us a few days ago? I gotta show you this picture I took when Val and I walked in the door!" Steve reached for his phone and brought up the photo of DJ, Jamie and little David all asleep on the sofa, and showed it to Joe and me. Joe and I had no choice but to grin. "Oh my god," I exclaimed, "that is so sweet, and so precious." "I had to capture it," Steve said, "I’m going to get some prints made, and I’ll make sure you get one. Joe, don’t forget to make that appointment, it’s important." Joe and I walked out of Steve’s office and I prepared to pay the fee, and Brenda told us there was no charge, as we are family. Joe, on the way back to my car, "I didn’t think any lawyer ever did anything for free!" "I guess maybe they do," I replied, "if it’s for family, and I am proud to have Steve Jones as part of my extended family." * * * * * * * * * * * * Meanwhile, at noon on Wednesday, DJ and Jamie are leaving campus and heading for dinner at the Seldon’s. Jamie had explained to DJ about the conversation he’d had with Bryan and Phil. "Jamie, are you going to approach your parents today, about Bryan and Phil?" "I did tell them I would ask today, and see what their reaction is," Jamie replied, "I really don’t know what they will say, if it’s a flat out ‘no’ I can tell the boys that it’s not an option." When Jamie and DJ walked into the kitchen, the aroma of Karen’s culinary skills was enough to make anyone hungry! Granny and Carl were sitting at the table, DJ and Jamie did their duty to kiss and hug the old lady, as well as Karen, and gave Carl a hug also. "Mom, Dad," Jamie spoke, "Can we talk?" "Honey," Karen stated, "There’s never been a time we couldn’t talk, just speak it." "I’m not sure how to—I don’t know—how to say what I need to say, I’m needing a favor—a really big favor!" Jamie couldn’t seem to find his tongue. "DJ," Karen queried, "do you know what this is about?" "Yeah, Mom, it’s about Phil and Bryan—they need help!" "Are Bryan’s parents causing trouble?" Carl asked. "No, at least not yet, Phil got a room at the Shady Inn, and they’re both staying there," DJ explained, "the room is $125 a week, and they’re living on carry outs and junk food." "They want to get a cheap apartment," Jamie finally found his tongue, "but it’s costing them so much to eat, and the room rent, they can’t save money for a deposit, and the first months rent on an apartment." "After Bryan’s father kicked Phil out," DJ added, "he was in a shelter for two weeks, then he got this job as a dishwasher at Denny’s, and rented that room at the motel. Neither one of them make very much money, but they both work, and Phil had to drop out of college." "I told them yesterday," Jamie said, "that I would ask you, if maybe, after Granny moves into her new place, you could let them stay here for a few weeks, so they can save up some money to get their own apartment." "They’re really nice boys," DJ said, "they don’t drink, smoke or do drugs, and they’re friends of ours." "Karen," Carl motioned to her to come with him. Karen turned off the stove burners and followed Carl to the bedroom. He closed the door. "Sweetheart," Carl said, "you know if we take them in, most of the extra work is going to fall on you. I think I’m getting soft in my middle age, but my heart is hurting for those two boys, especially after what Bryan’s parents have done." "Aggie will be moving into her new place in a few days, and we do have the other spare bedroom that Phil and Bryan could use, so we don’t need to wait until Aggie is gone. Honey, if you’re up for the challenge, I have no problem with it." "Carl, it can’t be too much worse having four young men here to cook for, instead of two, and I kind of enjoy the company." "So your up for it?" Carl asked. Karen nodded a yes and Karen and Carl went back to the kitchen. Carl, trying to keep a stern facial expression, "Boys, your mother and I have discussed this, and the ramifications, and decided that—the Seldon Hotel can handle two more guests! The other spare bedroom can be occupied now!" He then grinned. "Jamie, when does their current weeks rent run out at the motel?" Carl asked "Let me call Phil and find out," Jamie answered. Jamie called Phil, and he answered, "Phil, Dad wants to know when your rent period ends, when do you have to move out, or pay another week." "By 2:00 PM on Saturday," Phil answered. "Well, guess what," Jamie said, grinning, "It’s Wednesday, you guys better start packing, you’re all done there by Saturday noon." "Are you serious, Jamie!" Phil exclaimed, "Bryan and I can stay at your parents home?" "Don’t get too excited, Phil, it’s only until you and Bryan can get your own apartment." "Jamie, Bryan just left for work about 15 minutes ago, now I gotta wait until he gets home to tell him. Are you sure this is for real?" "It’s for real, Phil, my parents don’t lie, catch you later." "Mom, Dad," Jamie remarked, "you just made four young men very happy," then, looking at the clock, "Crap, I’m gonna be late, I was supposed to be at work at 3:00 and it’s 2:45 now, I gotta run." "DJ," Karen asked, "you’re not working today?" "Nope, I usually do deliveries on Wednesdays for Dad’s day off, but he wanted to work today and take tomorrow off. My Dads’ met a couple on the cruise from Cleveland, and they’re driving back, and Dads’ invited them to spend a couple days in NC. Dads’ are taking them to the Waterhole tomorrow night so I’m working my Dad’s delivery shift tomorrow." "If I understood right," Aggie commented, "you and Carl are taking two other young men, friends of DJ’s and Jamie’s, into your home?" "That’s how it is Mom," Karen explained, "Phil and Bryan were living at Bryan’s home, and Bryan’s Dad went crazy and kicked Phil out several weeks ago. He accused Phil of being a pervert, and trying to make Bryan gay, then they put all these restrictions on Bryan, and told him he couldn’t even have any male friends, and made his life a hell on earth, DJ you can probably tell this better than I can." "Bryan caught up with us at school, and asked for Jamie’s and my help. Phil had dropped out of school and was working, and has a room at the Shady Inn Motel. Jamie and I helped Bryan move out from his parent’s house and in with Phil at the motel. Phil and Bryan want to get an apartment, but it is costing so much for them to live in the motel, that they can’t save enough money to rent an apartment. Mom and Dad are going to let them stay here for a while, until they can get on their feet, and get their apartment." Granny, tears trickling down her cheeks, "So are these boys gay?" "We’ve never been told that," Karen said, "but two boys that are over 20 years old that have been sleeping together for over three years, what would you think?" DJ is nodding in affirmation. "Parents like Bryan’s don’t deserve to have kids!" Granny exclaimed, "Are these boys as nice as my grandsons?" "I don’t know," Karen snickered, "We haven’t met them yet, but they probably are nice, Jamie and DJ don’t have time for jerks!" "Granny," DJ stated, "they are nice, and I think you’ll like them." Carl had disappeared into the bedroom, and came out dressed in his work clothes. It was nearly 3:30 PM, he kissed Karen sweetly, and told the rest of them goodbye, and headed to work. Granny said it was time for her nap, and headed to her room and lay down. Karen put away the leftovers, and relaxed on the sofa, starting her nap. DJ didn’t have anything to do, so he decided to just relax on the bed for a while, and soon fell asleep also. (to be continued)
