Lance and Bill giggled and then headed out of the bathroom to rejoin the others. JC looked up from the laptop as Bill and Lance emerged from the bathroom and smiled as he saw Bill and Lance giggling happily. Bill walked over to the laptop and JC blushed as Bill looked over his shoulder and saw what he had been reading.

"JC...", Bill laughed, "You're reading my fan fiction about you on my machine...isn't that like kinda deranged or something?"

The guys all laughed then crowded over in front of Bill's monitor to see what story JC had been reading.

"OH Hey!", Chris said excitedly, "This is that story Joey and I was reading. The one where we all get super powers. Are these new chapters?! gotta post these so we can see what happens! I am like addicted to the story now!"

JC and Justin laughed and Bill shook his head and said, "Let's grab something to eat, OK?"

Chris looked at the laptop anxiously then to Bill and then back to the laptop and Bill rolled his eyes and smiled, "We're taking it with can read it tonite after we print off the stuff at Kinko's after we eat."

Bill shut down the laptop and then put it in his briefcase then nodded to the guys who started filing out the door. Bill gave the room a last cursory inspection then packed a few more quick clothes items in his briefcase then headed to the cars himself.

Chapter 12: Dinner Decorum and Bathroom Etiquette

The conversation over dinner was lively and amusing as the guys watched as Joey and Bill discussed Bill's present job in North Carolina. Joey's interest in the adult video industry that Bill worked in was apparent and the guys all laughed as Joey then related the story of how he was "caught" using the name of a male porn star to check into a hotel.

JC smiled as he watched the guys razz Joey over the incident and then smiled at Bill, relieved that he was fitting in so well with the rest of his friends. All through dinner, Chris looked over several times to JC and caught him staring at Bill and grinning like a simp.

As the waitress came around with the dessert tray, Bill declined and excused himself to the restroom. Chris watched in amusement as JC watched Bill turn the corner into the bathroom.

"So JC....could you possibly stare any harder at him...are you trying to make him feel uncomfortable or are you in love?", Chris said loud enough for everyone at the table to hear.

All eyes turned to JC as he began to blush a deep red, "I wasn't staring.....was I?"

Joey began to laugh hysterically, "I kept checking to see if his head was on fire or something the way you were staring at him so hard...jeez...subtle much?"

JC winced and groaned, "Do you think he noticed?"

Justin turned to stare at JC suddenly and repeated the question, "So....what ARE your feelings, JC?"

JC looked at Justin for a minute more and then shook his head and shrugged. Justin sighed, then got up and excused himself to the bathroom.

"What just happened?", Chris asked wide-eyed. Lance heaved a sigh and shook his head as the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of the emotions and actions of his friends began to fall into place in his mind.

"He was the first person I ever told about me...he's special...he's...I don't even know anymore.", JC sighed.

Justin walked into the bathroom as the stall door opened and Bill stood holding a tissue to his nose. "Hey man!", Justin smiled, "I thought you fell in." Bill shook his head and then blew his nose loudly. Justin cringed as Bill went back into the stall and then blew his nose about 5 more times.

"Naaah", Bill said a minute later, "Just taking care of my allergies from hell. I think there's something in the air down here that I am allergic to. I'll have to take some of my allergy medicine tonight. How was dessert?"

Justin looked at Bill hard for a long few seconds before Bill looked down at his shirt and began to pat his chest. "What? Did I get some snot on my shirt or something?"

Justin's frown turned to a giggle and he shook his head. "No...I was just thinkin', ya know?"

"What about, Justin?", Bill said as he washed his hands.

"JC....What's goin on between you two...that kinda stuff...maybe we can talk about it later...someplace more private."

Bill nodded then put his arm on Justin's shoulder, "He's a great guy...I am lucky to have met him and to have him as my friend. It's been years since I've had friends to talk to."

Justin's eyes widened, "Years?"

Bill nodded, "Since I moved away from all the people I knew in Washington DC, then when my best friend died so suddenly, I've just not been able to open up and make any friends. I just didn't want to...."

Justin watched as Bill's usually happy and animated face fell and into a look of despair and sadness. "Want to...?", Justin asked quietly.

Bill looked up and he shook his head, "I didn't want to watch any more of my friends die or just disappear. I thought being alone wasn't too bad, you know?"

"Oh...", Justin uttered as he stared at Bill in shock.

Bill finished drying his hands and then headed out of the bathroom leaving Justin standing there by the sink deep in his thoughts. Unable to force a smile on his face, Bill settled for a neutral expression as he rejoined the rest of the guys at the table.

"Hey Bill...we thought you fell in!", Joey said with a laugh.

Bill just smiled and shook his head, "I think there's a delayed echo in this restaurant...that's the second time in about 5 minutes that someone has said that to me....Justin just asked me that very same thing."

Chris giggled, "We'd better come up with something more original....Where is Justin?"

Bill smiled evilly, "Well...last I checked he was taking care of business, I offered to hold it and help him shake, but he declined. Apparently I am not his type."

JC and Joey snickered at Bill's comeback as Chris sat open mouthed for a second.

"Well...OK....there you have it.", Chris said.

A second later Lance began to laugh and motion with his head at Justin who was exiting the bathroom and approaching the table. "Maybe you should have helped him out looks like he made a mess of it by himself."

Lance dissolved into giggles as everyone turned to look at Justin who was wiping off his pants and cursing in a low tone of voice. "Damn totally soaked my I look like I pissed myself!"

The guys began to snicker and soon the snickering turned into all out laughter as Justin looked at the table and stopped wiping his pants.

"What? What did I say?", Justin said with a smile, trying to get in on the joke.

"Nothing Justin....", its just we were just talking about you needing help shaking it in the bathroom and then you come out looking like you pissed yourself!", Joey giggled.

Justin blushed furiously, then arched his eyebrow, "And you were talking about my urinary capabilities...WHY?"

This sent the table into another fit of giggles. A second later, the waiter dropped the check and Bill grabbed it only to have it snatched out of his hands by Lance.

"Hey!", Bill said, "I was just gonna see how much I owe!"

Lance shook his head and pulled out his credit card, "You cooked this is on me."

Bill rolled his eyes and shook his head as the guys all headed out to the SUV after Lance paid the bill and then headed over to Kinko's.
