"Are you two okay?" a voice called from outside the door. We just looked at each other and continued giggling.

I glanced over at Brian again and stopped laughing. "God I love you," I said. Brian rolled over and stood up, standing over me. He held out his hand and pulled me up until we were face to face. Our eyes were locked.

"I love you too," he said before kissing me gently on the lips and turning to go into the bathroom. I sighed and went back downstairs.

Chapter 25

As I walked back into the kitchen, I found Sheri helping Kevin cook breakfast. Both of them were smiling broadly and talking quietly. It was cute! I watched them for a moment then left silently. I wandered out to the living room and discovered Nick dozing on the couch. I shook my head. The boy gets out of bed to sleep on the couch.

Walking quietly over to the sliding glass doors, I could see Howie and Melissa standing together, their arms around each other and their foreheads touching. They were having a whispered conversation, interrupted frequently by soft little kisses. I smiled to myself, happy to see others so much in love.

I walked back through the living room, leaving Nick in peace. I realized I knew where everyone was except for Drew and AJ. I momentarily debated whether I should go check on Drew, but decided against it. Both of them were adults and could do as they pleased.

Just as I was walking past the bottom of the stairs, Drew came trotting down. I grinned up at him, but quickly lost my smile as I saw the serious expression on his face. He noticed me and stopped mid-stride. Something I rarely saw happened when he began to blush.

My mind quickly filled in the reason why, but before I could say anything Howie, Melissa and Nick came out of the living room, laughing and talking.

"Hey guys!" Nick greeted us. "Kev and Sheri should have breakfast ready."

I saw Drew put on a smile and walk down the remaining few steps to join Nick. "Great! I'm starved," he said as he trailed after Howie and Melissa, completely ignoring me. I knew I wouldn't get anything from him, until he decided to talk, so I didn't say anything to him.

"I'm gonna see if Brian's ready. We'll be right there," I told Nick and walked up the stairs.

As I reached the upstairs hallway, I could see Brian and AJ standing at the end of the hall, deep in conversation. AJ looked up as he heard my footsteps and said something quickly to Brian before walking along the hall towards me.

"Morning AJ," I said as he approached.

"Hey Scott," he replied quietly without looking up to meet my eyes as he continued past me and down the stairs. I looked over at my love and quickly saw the concerned expression on his face. We both began walking and met halfway down the hall.

"Well Angel," Brian said with a rueful smile, "I guess we were right about them," he said softly, reaching up to touch my face.

I tilted my head into his hand. "What happened?" I asked. "I only saw Drew for a minute, but he looked rather serious and so did AJ just now," I commented as we began to walk along the hall holding hands.

We stopped at the top of the stairs. "I'm not completely sure Scott," Brian admitted. "But while I was showering, I could hear them in the bathroom next door." Brian paused. "I don't know about Drew, but AJ is pretty confused today." Brian put his hand over my mouth before I could comment. "Don't be upset with Drew. AJ said he started things and nothing happened that he didn't want. He's just a little...overwhelmed maybe, by his feelings," Brian explained.

I knew Drew would never force himself on anyone but I just hoped he hadn't taken advantage of AJ's confusion. Despite his tattoos and 'wild man' image, I'd found AJ to be rather sweet and I didn't want him to be hurt, or Drew to get hurt either.

Brian started down the stairs but I grabbed his hand and pulled him close for a kiss. "Maybe we should try to talk to them today," I murmured as I nuzzled his soft neck.

Brian pulled back and kissed my forehead. "Of course we will Angel," he said as though I'd stated the obvious.

I grinned as he grabbed my hand and pulled me along behind as we walked down the stairs and to the kitchen.

In the kitchen we found Drew in a deep business discussion with Howie and Melissa while Nick and AJ were arguing over some silly thing. It was obvious to me and I think to Brian that the two were purposely avoiding each other. Kevin and Sheri were busy setting dishes of pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs on the table.

I offered my services to them, while Brian walked over to find out what Nick and AJ were arguing about. A few seconds later, everyone was called to the table and grabbed a seat to devour the food.

"What time do you guys have to be at the arena?" I asked no one in particular as I reached for the pitcher of orange juice.

Nick shook his head and swallowed his mouthful of bacon before answering. "Actually Michael called and said we didn't need to show up today. Just do a sound check and short rehearsal tomorrow afternoon before the concert." There was a round of cheers since the guys now had the day free.

"So anyone up for Disney?" Howie asked with a grin, knowing the response he'd get.

"Yippie!" Nick yelled, jumping up. "I wanna go see Mickey Mouse," he whined in a childlike voice.

"Now son, behave or we'll turn around and go home," Howie admonished.

"Awww Dad!" Nick whined.

Everyone was laughing. It was obvious that this conversation had taken place numerous times before.

I turned to Brian. "Ya know, it's a good thing you guys got a hold of him when you did!" I whispered. Brian looked perplexed. "Can you imagine if he'd been in the Mickey Mouse Club?" I pointed out and laughed at the horrified expression that crossed his face.

"So I take it Nick is in. Anyone else?" Howie asked and looked around the table. "What about you Sheri?" he asked my sister.

She smiled. "Sure! Never been so sounds like fun!"

The guys all looked at her in shock. Nick walked around the table to her looking like his dog just died. "Never been? I'm so sorry," he said solemnly, patting her shoulder.

Sheri grinned. "Yeah, but look at the tour guides I get for my first visit," she pointed out.

I glanced at Brian beside me and we silently communicated. Neither one of us wanted to spend the day battling the public. I wondered what Drew and AJ would choose to do. I looked at my long time friend and he was staring at AJ thoughtfully as AJ teased Nick about his Disney obsession.

"So who else?" Howie asked again.

Drew switched his attention to Howie. "I think I'll have to pass. Even though I'm on vacation, I still have to check in with the office and check a few deals personally," he explained. That was one down. I looked at AJ.

AJ shook his head. "Not me. I always get recognized and mobbed. I just wanna relax today. I may finally get a chance to read a book for a change."

The others accepted his reasoning and all eyes moved to Brian and I. Howie grinned at us before we could say anything. "Yeah right! I know you two aren't coming, or maybe I should rephrase that..." he added with a smirk, making everyone laugh and Brian and I blush.

The attention moved to Kevin. He sighed dramatically. "Well, I guess I better go, if only to save Sheri from Nick!" he explained. Nick threw a piece of bacon at him.

Everyone began to move, carrying the dishes to the sink and putting away other things. The five who were going to Disney headed upstairs to change, get money and cell phones. Brian agreed to be the emergency contact if things got out of hand at the park. I discovered that that was a tradition the five singers had set up for their own protection. If any of the group wasn't going to a potentially dangerous other words, someplace in public...they would be available to call in any type of help needed such as bodyguards or a quick limo pickup.

AJ disappeared out to the pool deck, his book in hand, while Drew set up his laptop in the living room to check in. Brian and I waited for the others to leave before going into the kitchen to clean up and talk.

"So what should we do, Love?" I asked Brian as I began to load the dishes into the dishwasher. "There's obviously a problem between them and I hate to see either one unhappy."

Brian walked over and I felt his arms wrap around my back. He kissed my shoulder and then my ear. "You are so sweet angel," he whispered.

I turned around within his arms so I could see his eyes. "Why?" I asked as I leaned forward for a taste of his lips.

He smiled and I felt that wonderful twinge in my chest. "Because you are just as worried about AJ as you are Drew, despite barely knowing AJ," he explained.

I hadn't really thought about it and shrugged. "They are both my friends and I want them both to be happy. Nothing strange about that." Brian just continued to smile.

"Well, I guess if we both talk to one each, then maybe later the four of us can sit down and talk," Brian suggested. I nodded, that was basically what I'd been thinking too. "I'll take Drew," Brian said. That I was not expecting. I looked at him unsure and Brian noticed. "Sometimes we can be too close to the situation. I know AJ so well that I may not be able to step back from what I always thought was true. The same goes for you and Drew."

I nodded again. "Okay Love. We'll try that. If not we'll switch." At the same time, we both moved forward for a quick kiss. We both were too anxious about helping our friends to make the kiss anything more.

We finished up in the kitchen and walked into the living room. I continued right through to the sliding doors and out to the patio. I looked around and saw AJ sitting in a lounger. His book was face down on his stomach as he stared off into the back yard.

I casually walked over and sat down in the lounger beside him. We sat side by side in silence for a few minutes until finally AJ turned his gaze to look at me. For once he wasn't wearing sunglasses and I could immediately see the confusion in his dark brown eyes. I waited for him to speak first.

"You know I hate you," he said softly but without real anger. I knew he didn't mean it so I continued to sit silently. "Before BSB, I had a friend and we experimented, but it was only messing around, the type of things all boys do. After that it's always been girls. Sure, I'd wonder once in a while what it would be like with a guy, but I figured that it was because I was open minded. I certainly didn't have a problem with Brian. I thought he was so brave for finally admitting his true self." AJ paused and looked down the backyard.

"Then you come along and make Brian so incredibly happy." AJ turned to look at me again. "I don't know if you really realize how much of a difference you've made in his life." He didn't wait for me to answer. "I know I've never been that happy with any of the girls I've dated. But I told myself that was because I hadn't found the right girl. Yet, since you've been around I've found myself wondering more and more what it would be like with a man. And then you bring me Drew." AJ stopped talking and pushed himself out of the lounger. He began to walk towards the lawn and I quickly stood up to follow. We followed the wood chip trail that made its way through the huge yard.

"I saw him and thought, 'wow, this could be an opportunity'. I knew he was gay, and he was a close friend of yours so I knew he could be trusted." I was amazed by that statement, that he had so much faith in my judgement. AJ continued. "I figured I didn't have anything to lose. So I asked him." I didn't bother asking AJ what exactly he'd asked Drew. "In fact, I propositioned him and he accepted, although he hesitated at first." We were at a small bench at the far end of the property and AJ sat down so I sat beside him. "I thought, 'I'll do this, I'll find out what its like. It'll be fun and then it will be over.' Of course things are never that simple." AJ turned to look at me and smiled ruefully. "I never expected it to be so...incredible."

AJ stopped talking and I decided that I could finally speak. "AJ, I'm not quite sure what the problem is. Are you wondering if maybe you are bisexual? Is it bothering you?" I was still trying to figure AJ out.

AJ shook his head. "No, I can accept that I'm bi. But...I don't know if it was so good because it was my first time or because of who it was with," he finished softly.

I finally began to see the problem. The deal with Drew had probably been a one-night stand, an experiment with no string attached. But now AJ wasn't sure if maybe he wanted the strings.

I tentatively touched his arm. "AJ have you talked to Drew about this?" I asked quietly.

AJ sighed deeply. "No. What am I going to say Scott? He has his life in Toronto and I have my life here. My life is too chaotic for something like that. Besides, who said he was interested? I mean he had his one night of fucking a pop singer. Its something he can write in his memoirs or something," AJ said angrily.

I gave AJ a disapproving look. "AJ, nothing is impossible if you want it enough, you know that. Look at Brian and I. No, its not easy, especially having to hide our relationship in public, but I'd rather that than not see him at all. And don't you think you're being a little judgmental about Drew? You propositioned him, so you really don't know how he feels about what happened. You owe it to both of you to talk about it and get it resolved, one way or another."

AJ looked at me and finally nodded. "Okay Scott. I guess I'm being a little childish. Let's go talk to Drew and see how Brian is making out with him," AJ said as he stood.

I looked up at him in surprise and he laughed. "What? You think I didn't figure it out? I'm smarter than I look you silly Canuck," he said.

I laughed and stood up. "I already knew that, AJ," I said as I began to follow the path back to the house.

We walked up to the sliding doors and peered in, noticing Brian and Drew sitting on the couch facing each other. I decided the best thing to do was knock. Brian looked up and Drew turned around to see us standing by the door. Brian said something and Drew looked back at him. Brian smiled and looked back at me, waving AJ and I in.

"Hey guys!" I said with a smile as I walked in. Drew stood up from the couch and moved to a chair, allowing me to sit beside Brian. I smiled at my friend and was happy to see him smile back. It looked like Brian's talk had gone well too.

Drew looked from Brian and I to AJ. I could see him make a decision. "Um, guys would you mind if AJ and I talk alone for a little while? I know you just want to help, and you have but I'd rather he and I talk alone. If that's okay with you AJ?" he added, looking hesitantly at AJ.

AJ nodded and smiled at Drew. "Yeah, I think that would be a good idea," he said softly.

I guess I had to accept that. "Do you want to talk here? Bri and I can go outside," I suggested.

Drew never took his gaze from AJ, but nodded. "Thanks Scott. I...we'd appreciate that."

I grabbed Brian's hand and we walked back to the sliding door, opening it and stepping through before closing it. I led him along the pool patio and onto the lawn. He stopped me and turned me around, pulling me close for a deep kiss. I sighed and relaxed against his solid body, relishing the feel of his skin and muscles against me.

I hugged him tightly. "So your talk went well," I whispered into his ear as I rested my chin on his shoulder.

"Yeah, I think it did. And yours?"

"Uh-huh." I began to nibble on his ear. "So what are we going to do while they're in there talking?" I wondered aloud.

Brian turned his head until our lips met. "I can think of a couple of things," he murmured before I felt his tongue probing at my mouth. I opened my lips and allowed him access as our lips met in a slow, but passionate kiss.

I began walking, slowly moving Brian backwards as we kissed until we reached the bench beneath the trees that AJ and I had sat on earlier. I turned around and sat down, pulling Brian onto my lap, never breaking the kiss. His arms wrapped around my neck as his lips began to trail all over my face. I leaned back and sighed. "That feels so good Love," I whispered as he continued his actions.

A few minutes later Brian lifted his head and our eyes met. Both of us were a little flushed. He smiled seductively and my heart flipped. He slid off my knees and pulled me to my feet before pulling me down to the grass. I stretched out on top of him and rested on my forearms either side so I could stare at down at him.

I quickly lowered my lips to cover his and reveled in the wonderful taste of him. I could feel his passion growing beneath me and knew I was getting aroused quickly. Brian suddenly rolled me over and I found myself on my back, with my love on top. He stared down at me with a sly smile.

"Ever make love outside Angel?" he asked me softly, leaning down to kiss my throat. I shivered despite the warmth of the day.

Smiling up at him I wrapped my arms around his back. "I've always wanted to..." I murmured before his lips covered mine.

I reached over to scratch my arm and flicked the ant off that was crawling on me. I looked around and remembered where I was, and whom I was with. A quick glance at my watch showed that we'd been sleeping for almost three hours. Brian was still sleeping on my chest so I relaxed back onto the grass. My body was still completely relaxed as it usually was after lovemaking. I smiled to myself remember the passion and intensity Brian had shown as he tenderly entered me, then increased the pace as he brought us both into ecstasy. It was like every time with Brian was better than the last.

Brian shifted on me. "You okay Angel?" he asked softly against my chest.

I tightened my arms around him. "I'm terrific. What about you?"

Brian ran his tongue across my chest, flicking both nipples in response. I shuddered. He rolled off of me and rose to his feet. Offering me a hand, I stood up and we both grabbed our shirts from the ground. We'd taken the time to pull our shorts on after we'd made love, just in case anyone came looking for us. "Lets go back to the house and see what's happening, okay?" Brian suggested. Then he leaned in for a kiss. "If nothing is going on we can always go up to the bedroom for some more fun!"

I laughed and swatted his tight ass. "Is that all you think about?" I smirked.

We began walking back along the path. "Not all," he finally responded to my comment. "But I do want to feel you inside me again." His bluntness actually surprised me and I could feel myself blushing slightly. Brian noticed and giggled, wrapping his arm around my waist. "I'm sorry Scott," he apologized. "But it's true! I love making love to YOU, but I think I may prefer having you make love to me."

I smiled. "Whatever you want love. I'll take you anyway I can have you," I said with a sly grin.

We reached the patio doors and walked in. We immediately noticed Drew and AJ were sitting on the couch together. Drew's arm was around AJ's shoulders as they watched TV. They both looked up at us and smiled.

I sat down in the overstuffed chair and Brian immediately sat on my lap, throwing his legs over the chair's arm. "Everything okay guys?" I commented.

Drew and AJ glanced at each other and nodded. "Yeah. Thanks Scott, and you too Brian," AJ said. "We're just going to see what happens over the next few days then see where we're going."

"That sounds like a good plan," Brian commented as he tucked his head against my chest.

"By the way, Kev called. He said they'd be home in about an hour. Four hours non stop at the park is about all any of them can take," AJ said.

"So what should we do tonight?" I asked them.

The other three shrugged. "I dunno. I'm tired of watching movies or going to clubs. What about board games or cards or something," Brian suggested.

I thought for a minute then looked over at Drew. "How many decks of cards do you guys have?" I asked. Drew noticed my gaze and grinned, knowing what I was asking.

AJ shrugged. "Dunno. Maybe four or five, I guess. Why?"

Drew and I grinned. With nine people, assuming everyone wanted to play, I figured we could have an interesting game of 'asshole'. I know it has another name, but we always called it 'asshole' in high school and at university.

"Ever played asshole?" Drew asked. Both AJ and Brian shook their heads. Drew quickly explained the rules and both men said it sounded like fun. We could even incorporate our own rules such as making every new president take a drink.

We continued to discuss things we could do that night until the other five people returned a short time later. They were all hyper and talking excitedly. Not even realizing they were still entangled in each other's arms, Drew and AJ looked up, wondering why all the conversation suddenly came to a stop.

Nick spoke first, with a huge grin on his face. "Uh, anything you want to share Bone?" he asked.

AJ looked confused for a minute until he noticed the smiles on Brian and my faces. He pulled forward a little to turn and look at Drew.

"Anything you want to say, D?" he asked casually. Drew shook his head. AJ shrugged and leaned back against Drew and looked back to Nick. "Nope. Not really Nick," he said. We burst into laughter at Nick's shocked expression.

Nick launched himself at AJ, only to find himself in a two against one battle. While they fought, I glanced at Sheri and Kevin and noticed how close they were standing. Kevin was partially behind Sheri, his shoulder against hers. A quick glance at Sheri's hand confirmed my suspicions. Her hand was behind her back, obviously clasped in Kevin's. I whispered to Brian. "Kev and Sher." He took a quick look and saw the same thing.

I could tell he was happy, but then looked back to where Nick was being tickled by Drew and AJ. Brian turned back to me. "I have an idea," he whispered. "Do you think we could deal with one more person?" he asked.

I nodded. I wasn't sure who he had in mind, but I trusted his judgement. Brian slipped off my knee and walked quietly out to the hall. The rest of the gang was too busy recounting their adventures at the amusement park to notice.

I silently slipped out of the room too and found Brian in the hall, sitting on the bottom stair, dialing his cell phone. I sat down beside him and waited.

"Hello, would Nora be there please?" he said. Nora! Of course. She already knew about Brian and I so we wouldn't have to hide. She was close to Nick's age and would even out the numbers so Nick didn't feel like a fifth, or in our case, ninth wheel.

"Nora? It's Brian. Remember me?" Brian laughed at what Nora said. "Have a good holiday?" he asked. "Not bad. But it's better now because Scott and I are together." He paused and listened to her comment before grinning. "Actually, we were wondering what you were doing this evening.... Well, there are nine of us here and we were just going to order some dinner, then hang out, play some cards or something.... Yeah the exciting life of a pop star," he added with a laugh. "Well, Nicky needs a new playmate, but if you're not interested...Don't worry. We all like new people that don't go hysterical on us." Brian grinned at me. "It's the five guys, Scott, his sister Sheri, his friend Drew and Howie's girlfriend Melissa," Brian ran through the list of who was here. Brian gave Nora the address and hung up the phone.

I hugged Brian. "Now who's the sweet one?" I commented. Brian kissed my nose and stood up.

"Lets go see what those jokers are doing. We should decide what we want to eat and get orders decided. I'll wait till Nora gets here before calling it in."

We walked back into the living room and found the others all sitting around chatting.

The conversation finally turned towards dinner and after a short discussion, we decided on Chinese. Brian grabbed a pen and piece of paper to write down the requests. While he was doing that the buzzer at the gate rang.

"I'll get it!" I said, jumping up before anyone could respond. I opened the gate allowing Nora to drive up to the house. I greeted her at the door. She pulled me into a hug and kissed my cheek.

"Nice to see you Scott!" she said with a smile.

"You to!" I replied.

Taking her hand I walked back to the living room. Everyone stopped talking and looked at us. Nora noticed Brian sitting on the chair and quickly walked over to him, pulling me with her.

She put her arms around us both. "So how's my favorite couple?" she asked.

I tried hard not to laugh at the shocked expressions that spread around the room like wildfire.

To be continued...

Next up, New Years, then the tour!

By the way...would anyone be interested in a one time story about AJ and Drew?
