Here we go with Part 19, at last -- Sorry this has taken so long to get done, but I was having trouble sitting down at my computer at night after staring at one all day long. It wasn't a case of writer's block or anything, just ODing on the keyboard and monitor.
One of the things that seems to be a tradition on here is for authors to mention some of their favorite stories... I have been an avid reader of quite a few: Twist of Fate (Jeff has come back to life, AT LAST!!!), Yellow, Just Together (Celebrity section but has N'Sync in it), Brian and Me (Also a new installment after way too long of a lapse), Jamie's Romance, My Surprise Romance, Lance in Shining Armour, Studio in the Country, Lucky Me, Not Meant to Be, Mile High Meeting, Model Romance, Beneath It All and the list goes on. My email address is email@example.com, if you feel inclined to write and let me know what you think or just want to chat.
Now on to the standard disclaimers. I doubt that anything I write will make any difference since if you found this little gathering place on the World Wide Web you're probably going to go ahead and read what's here no matter what anyone says. But here it goes anyway...
If you have a problem reading about guys who like other guys as something more than just friends, you need to go find some other place to poke around. If you are under the legal age to read erotic fiction where you live, you probably wouldn't get in trouble for reading this story, but you really don't belong here. And most importantly, many of the names mentioned in this story have been changed to protect the guilty (or is that supposed to be the innocent?). Under no circumstances will I disclose whether or not I actually know any of The Backstreet Boys or any other celebrity who may make an appearance. Nor do I believe in outing people, so I will not disclose any information about the true sexual orientation of anyone mentioned in this story.
Previously in the story of Nick and the Altos
When we got inside my suite, Gracie went ape shit over Nick, totally ignoring me in the process. He sat down on the couch and petted her until she calmed down. I went into the kitchen and got us something to drink. I lay down on the couch and rested my head in his lap. He started running his fingers though my hair. We sat there and talked for a while and then he started to get up. I raised my head as he stood.
He reached out his hand and said, "Come on, Mikey. Let's go to bed..."
I took his hand and he pulled me up off the couch. We walked hand in hand towards the bedroom and closed the door after us, leaving Gracie in the living room.
As we approached the bed, I hesitated and Nick gave me sort of a funny look. "What's up, Mikey?"
"I'm thinking maybe we should leave the door open in case Gracie wants to come in..."
Nick laughed quietly, "You mean you have me to spend the night with and you're worried about your dog?"
"Yeah, you have a problem with that?"
"No, it's actually one of the things I love about you."
"That you're so caring."
I went back and opened the door. She wasn't waiting at the door. I looked around and found her curled up on the couch in the living room. I turned and went back to Nick and he leaned over and gave me a gentle kiss on my lips. We continued our journey to the bed and lay down face to face.
"You can't believe how much I have missed you, Mikey," Nick said as he leaned over and kissed me.
"Oh, really. I mean it isn't like I haven't missed you a whole bunch too," I said as I leaned over and kissed him. "I honestly don't know how I was able to sleep at night not having you next to me."
"I know that feeling," he said as he slid closer to me. I rolled on to my back and he slid up next to me and rested his head on my shoulder, putting his arm on my chest and his leg between mine.
It was such a comfortable position. We lay there telling each other about our day, with me running my fingers through his hair. Every once in a while Nick would lift is head and kiss me gently. Nothing intense, just sweet, affectionate kisses. "You know, Nicky, I don't think I'm going to ever want to let you go off by yourself again."
"I know what you mean. It feels so good laying here with you I don't even want to think about not being together. But we can't think about that because it's just going to make us sad and I don't want that hanging over our heads. We need to make the most of our times together."
"Yeah, I know, but still..."
He silenced me with a kiss, a long kiss. The way things had started out on the bed I hadn't expected much to happen tonight. It had seemed like we were just going to be holding each other and being close. But that kiss, it changed everything.
After Nick broke the kiss, I looked into his eyes and was overwhelmed by the love I found in them. I pulled him into another deep kiss that seemed to go on forever. Gradually our hands started exploring each other's body. As the kissing continued we began undressing each other. Before too long we were down to just our boxers. Nick broke the kiss and started kissing down my neck and then my chest. Gradually he moved to my nipples and as he sucked on them I thought I was going to go out of my mind.
We had never gone this far before, but I was completely enthralled by the sensations I was experiencing. It's hard to explain what was going through my head. Part of me was wanting Nick to continue downward and do whatever he wanted to do. Another part of me wanted him to stop where he was because I wasn't ready for more than this. Fortunately, I didn't have to decide. Nick slowly began kissing his way back up to my lips.
After a few more minutes of kissing, I rolled Nick on to his back and moved to his ears, nibbling on his ear lobes and exploring with my tongue. It had a major effect on him. After exploring one ear I went to the other and then moved down his neck and worked on his nipples. It was obvious that I was bringing him every bit as much pleasure as he had given me. Part of me wanted to continue downwards, but I controlled myself, assuming that Nick really wasn't any more ready to go further than I in spite of how turned on we both were.
I moved back up to his lips and kissed him again deeply and then broke away and lay my head on his chest. "Oh my God, Nick, I don't think I have ever been this turned on before."
"I can't even imagine what sex is going to be like, Mikey, that was incredible."
I looked down at his tented boxers and giggled. "What's so funny?" he asked.
"Well, from the looks of things, you're going to need a shower before we go to bed."
He lifted is head to see what I was talking about. "Like you have room to talk."
"Ok, so we both got really excited. So do you want to continue with what we were doing or take a shower?"
"Um, I think we had better do the shower thing. I don't know if I can take much more of what we were doing without making a real mess."
"I know what you mean," I said as I started to get up off him. "You know, Nick, I'm really glad we didn't go any further than we did. You can't imagine how much I want us to make love, but I'm glad we're taking it slowly."
Nick stood up and we started walking towards the bathroom. "I really want to do it too, Mikey, but I'm in no big rush."
I started the shower and, once the temperature was adjusted, stepped inside followed by Nick. "I was expecting a cold shower," he said as he started lathering my body with the bar of soap.
We controlled ourselves during the shower. I'm not saying there wasn't some kissing and neither one of us lost our erections. We bathed each other completely and I don't know what I enjoyed more, having Nick wash me or doing it to him. It was so special touching every part of his body. I know I tease him a lot about not being very big, but it is perfect in every way. I get the feeling he feels the same way about mine the way he looked at it as he washed it. I couldn't ask for a more wonderful boyfriend.
After we dried each other off we went back into the bedroom. While we had been in the shower Gracie had decided to take over the bed, laying right in the middle of it. She looked up as we walked over. I gave her the 'move it' gesture and she slowly got up and got off the bed and lay down on the pile of clothes that we had left on the floor. Nick and I crawled under the covers and snuggled up once again. It didn't take long before we were both asleep.
When I awoke the Saturday morning, Nick was still holding me in his arms. It was the most wonderful way to wake up. I wanted to lay there forever, but after a few minutes, the need to pee was too great and I tried to slip out of bed without waking him. I failed...
"Where are you going, Mikey?" he asked sleepily.
"The bathroom, I have to pee."
"You're coming back to bed aren't you?"
After peeing and brushing my teeth I went back to bed and curled up next to him. "Not even fair," he said when he smelled the remnants of the toothpaste scent.
"Well, I was already up so I went ahead and brushed. Besides, I'm sure your breath isn't that bad, at least compared to what I usually have to contend with in the mornings." He gave me this funny, questioning look. "Gracie."
"Oh, thanks a lot. I would hope my breath isn't as bad as a dog's is."
"I vote for a scientific experiment. Gracie, come," I said as I rolled to the edge of the bed and she nuzzled me, licking at my cheek. I patted her head and then rolled back to Nick and kissed him. "No contest," I said, "your breath is much fresher."
He lay there looking back at me in disbelief. "I can't believe you! You must really think you're funny."
"Yep, just one of the many reasons why you love me." I leaned over and kissed him again.
"You really think I'm going to forgive you that easily?"
"Yep, cause you love me," I said as I leaned over and gave him a deeper kiss.
"Don't even think I'm that easy, Mikey"
I started nibbling on his ear and before too long he had forgotten all about the teasing about his breath. We proceeded to repeat the previous night's activities. After about an hour of highly erotic touching and kissing, I decided it was time to think about getting up and taking Gracie for a probably much needed walk. We were both pretty sticky below our waists so a shower was definitely in order.
Unlike the morning's events in the bedroom, what happened in the shower wasn't exactly a repeat of the night before. Nick began by lathering up my body, but the kissing was much deeper than the night before. When he got ready to start on my legs, he sat down on the seat in the shower and slowly lathered up each leg. Then when he was finished with the second leg his hands slowly moved to my crotch.
He began gently washing my balls and then my penis. I watched him as he looked at it smiling. He lathered up his hands and slowly began stroking it. Within a few seconds I realized that he wasn't just going to wash it. It wasn't much longer before I knew that I wasn't going to last very long. "Nick, I'm really close..." I uttered seconds before I exploded into an incredibly intense orgasm.
Nick stood up and held my shaking body. If he hadn't, I really think I would have fallen down. As I began to recover I looked up at his beautiful face and he kissed me deeply. "I hope that was okay with you," he said sweetly.
"Oh, yeah, it was wonderful."
"I gathered you were enjoying it, but I mean was it ok with you that I did it?" he said hesitantly.
I looked up at him lovingly and kissed him. "It was totally ok, Nicky. I'm glad you were the one who took the initiative, though."
"Well, even though I'm not all that experienced, I've done it before. I don't want to push you to do something for the first time until you're really ready."
"Mikey, I know you love me just as much as I love you. Don't be afraid to take the lead. I know that if I'm not ready and I say so, you'll stop and not take it the wrong way," he said as he kissed me.
"I know, Nick, I just worry that you'd let me do something a little sooner than you want because you love me."
"Mikey, I'm never going to regret anything we do together. Don't worry."
I picked up the bar of soap and started washing Nick from head to toe. When the time came I pretty much repeated what Nick had done with me. I was totally mesmerized by his beautiful erection. It was, in my eyes anyway, perfection. As I slid my hand up and down it, I was very aware that Nick was incredibly turned on. He didn't last much longer than I did before his orgasm began. That boy definitely made a major mess. I was going to need another shower!
After he was through his orgasm I stood up and hugged him tightly and then I kissed him. And we both needed another shower. We washed each other again and then turned off the shower. There was a lot more kissing while we dried each other. I don't know how Nick felt, but to me it was like we had reached a turning point in our physical relationship. It's not that I was ready for us to proceed further, but I wasn't hesitant to touch him down there any more. It was a really wonderful feeling. I was already looking forward to tonight, even though it was many hours away.
After we got dressed I put Gracie's leash on her and we went out into the hallway. Nick had put on this fishing type cap and sunglasses. We took the elevator to the lobby and headed off to the park I had visited yesterday. We had a nice walk, chatting about what we were going to do for the day. While we were sitting on a park bench letting Gracie run around, Nick's phone rang.
Turned out it was Kevin calling to see what we were up to and asking if we wanted to meet them for lunch. Nick made the plans with him and then we continued to talk while watching Gracie have fun playing with a couple of other dogs. She finally lost interest and trotted over to us. I put the leash back on her and we walked back to the hotel.
As luck would have it, as we entered the lobby I saw Ryan get out of one of the elevators. I sort of freaked out a bit. "Nick, we have a major problem. You have to get away from me!"
"We have to avoid that kid that just got off the elevators. I'll see you at the room in a few minutes."
He gave me a weird look but did what he was told. He headed towards the gift shop which was the opposite direction from the elevators as I continued towards Ryan.
"Hey, Mikey," Ryan said as we approached each other. "Did you and your boyfriend have fun last night?"
"Hi, Ryan. Yes, it was good seeing him. What did you guys do?"
"Oh, an exciting time out on the town with good old mom and dad," he said sarcastically.
"Been there, done that."
"Tonight's the night I'm looking forward to... the concert. So are you going to go?"
"I'm not really into The Backstreet Boys. They aren't my type."
"Really, I thought all us gay guys liked them. So was that your boyfriend we saw you with last night?"
"Hope we get a chance to meet him."
"Umm, he's pretty busy, so I doubt you'll get the chance."
"Well I need to get Gracie some breakfast. See you later, Ryan."
As I headed towards the elevator I looked over my shoulder and noticed that Ryan was going towards the gift shop. 'Oh, shit,' I thought to myself. There wasn't anything I could do about the situation so I took the elevator up to our floor and went to the room.
It seemed like it took forever before Nick got there but it was only about ten minutes. "That was way too close for comfort! Did he recognize you in the gift shop?" I asked Nick as he walked into the living room.
"I don't know. What was that all about?"
"I met him and his brother at the pool yesterday evening. They are here to go to your concert."
"And they're gay?"
"Well, the one downstairs is. His name is Ryan. His brother Jeff says he might be bi."
"And they know you're gay?"
"Yeah, you're not pissed at me are you?"
"No, why would I be? We have to accept stuff like this is going to happen. We just have to be careful."
"I was sort of worried you were going to be pissed because I let them know I'm gay."
"Not at all, Mikey. Part of me wants to come out so I don't need to hide the way I feel about you from everyone."
"Yeah, but other than my family and the guys, no one knows. Not even your family."
"I guess I need to tell them first, huh?"
"Well, I sure would be pissed if I were your parents and you came out on national TV without ever having said anything."
"Yeah, I know. I'm in no great rush to deal with them, though."
"Why, don't you get along?"
"Well, my mother still thinks she should run my life, so I just try to avoid anything that could set her off. Let's change the subject, I don't really want to think about them."
"So when do we need to leave to meet the guys?"
"In about an hour."
"Any ideas about what we can do to occupy ourselves between now and then?"
"Oh yeah, I've got plenty of ideas," he said as he took my hand and led me to the couch. We cuddled up on the couch and turned on cartoons and laughed our asses off for the next hour.
We had a good time at lunch. I'm sure that the rest of the guys really weren't interested in the details of Nick's and my sex life, but they sure spent a lot of time quizzing us about whether or not we had done it yet. Of course, there was no contest in the blushing department... I won hands down over Nick. After lunch we went to a movie and then it was time for them to go do a sound check for tonight's concert.
After dropping them at the venue, the limo took me back to my hotel. Nick wasn't going to come back until after the concert so I decided to relax for a while, take Gracie for another walk and then go for a swim.
After putting Gracie's leash on we headed off to the park again. We spent about an hour wandering around. I continue to be amazed by how much she is into going for walks. I mean it's understandable when we are somewhere like the hotel where she can't just go hang out in the yard. But she is just as excited about it when we are at my parents or in Colorado where she pretty much has freedom to wander quite a ways. Such is a dog's life, I guess.
On the way back we happened to go by a jewelry shop. I stopped and looked at the window display. They had this really nice looking sterling silver ID bracelet in the display. I decided to live dangerously and go inside. I didn't know how they would react to having me walk in with a dog, but fortunately, no one seemed to mind.
Twenty minutes later I walked out, receipt in hand, with a promise that the pair of bracelets would be ready to pick up in two hours. I walked back to the hotel with a big smile on my face. I couldn't wait to see the look on Nick's face when I gave him his present after the concert.
I spent a couple of hours laying on the couch reading with the TV on in the background. Nick called me after their sound check and we talked for quite a while. We would have talked longer, but the rest of the guys started nagging at him to hang up so they could go grab a snack before heading to the concert. Before hanging up he told me the car would pick me up at 7 p.m. to take me to the concert.
After a speed run over to the jewelry store, I went down to the pool and swam some laps. This time I had the pool to myself. After my laps I went into the steam room for a while and then went back up to the room to shower and get ready. I arranged for Gracie to be walked later that night and then went down to meet the limo for my trip to the concert.
I lucked out again in front of the hotel as neither Ryan nor Jeff were around. I assumed they had left much earlier since they would have to stand in line to get inside the concert venue. As the driver pulled up to the venue I saw this huge mass of kids out in front waiting to get inside. We drove right past them and pulled up at a private entrance, where I was met by a bodyguard, who escorted me to the guy's dressing room.
In the crowd out side the venue a number of kids saw the limo pass by and swing around to the back entrance.
"Jeff, I could swear that is the same limo that Mikey used last night," Ryan shouted over the noise.
"No way, Ryan. He said he wasn't into The Backstreet Boys music. There's no way he would be coming to the show."
"Yeah, but remember how I told you I was sure I saw Nick Carter in the hotel lobby and gift shop this morning. It looked like he and Mikey came inside at the same time and then split up.
"You're dreaming, dude. I thought we shared everything but I'm getting really suspicious that you've got a stash of good pot I don't know anything about."
"I'm serious, Jeff. I wouldn't lie to you about something like that."
After opening the door to the dressing room, the guard explained that the guys were in a pre-show greeting session for fans who had won a contest and that they would be back in about 15 minutes. I grabbed a bottle of water from the buffet table and made myself comfortable on one of the couches.
Nick was the first one back and he sat down next to me and gave me a friendly kiss and asked how the trip over had been. I told him it had been nice and peaceful and that I hadn't run into Ryan or Jeff all afternoon. We both agreed that was a very good thing.
As we got closer to show time, one of the staff showed me the way to where I was going to be sitting. It was in a small area out of sight of the audience to one side of the stage. It sounded really insane out in the audience. Slowly the lights started to dim and then the show began.
For not being a fan, I have to admit I was pretty impressed. The show seemed to go on forever, not because I was getting bored, but because of the fans. The guys did like four encores. I remember thinking that once it was over Nick had better be first in line to take a shower because there was no way I was going to kiss or even hug him as sweaty as he was going to be.
After the final encore the auditorium lights came on. It didn't seem to have much of an impact on the screaming fans at first, but finally they realized that the concert was over and they began to file out of the place.
I found my way back to the dressing room and, when an extremely sweaty Nick acted like he was about to hug and kiss me, I held up my hands in the traditional 'Time Out' signal and told him that could wait until after he showered and changed into clean clothes. Nick, being his brilliant self, suggested that I join him in the shower. Of course, AJ overheard the request and started the gagging act saying there was no way he was going to take a shower after we had used it and done the dirty deed in there.
The two of us took a whole ration of shit after that so Nick finally went into the bathroom by himself. Of course, AJ couldn't stop harassing him, so he very loudly reminded Nick that he should refrain from jerking off in the shower for once.
I went back to the couch and sat down to wait for Nick. Kevin sat down in the chair beside me and, a big surprise to me, struck up a conversation. "Mikey, you need to know that even though we tend to give you guys a bad time, we're all really happy about you and Nick. The way everything started with your father, I never thought I would say this, but I'm really glad you and Nick met."
I was completely stunned. "Wow, thanks Kevin. I mean, wow. I was worried that you guys weren't all that excited about the situation."
"Oh, to a certain extent that's still true. What with the damned photograph situation still waiting to hit the news and trying to hide the relationship from the public, our lives would be a lot easier if you guys hadn't fallen in love. But in the whole time Nick has been growing up, I've never seen him really happy the way he is when you are around or when you guys are talking on the phone. It's right and it's obvious. I just wonder how we'll survive it."
"Believe me, Kevin, if there was anything me or my parents could do to put an end to that photograph situation, it would have been done. Unfortunately, there's nothing any of us can do about my damned grandfather."
"We realize that and we don't blame you for this. It's something that happened and if the need arises, we'll deal with it the best we can. Just remember that if they become public, some things may be said that might hurt, but they'll be things that are said in anger at the situation, not personally at you. We really are happy for you and know you are really good for Nick."
"Hey, are you guys talking about me while I'm unavailable?" Nick said as he walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist.
"Watch out guys, there's a naked fairy on the loose," AJ yelled as he ducked into the bathroom and locked the door.
"Very funny, jackass! Isn't that what the 'J' is for?" Nick yelled in reply.
"Hey Nicky, why don't you put some clothes on?" Howie said. "I don't really need to be in the same room with you when you're with your boyfriend and you don't have any clothes on."
"It's not like I'm naked, Howie. I do have a towel around me."
"Yeah, like that's going to do a lot of good when you get a woody," Howie retorted.
"Jeez, who's turn is it to watch the kiddies tonight?" Kevin said laughing.
Nick went over to his bag and started getting dressed. "So Kev, what's the plan for tonight?"
"I don't know, maybe go get something to eat and then we'll split up and you guys can go do whatever and we'll go to a club," Kevin replied.
"Can't we go clubbing with you?" Nick asked.
"I don't think that would be such a good idea. You guys need to sort of lay low when you are together and try to not attract any more attention than necessary."
"All right, I'd rather spend a quiet evening with Mikey anyway," Nick said as he looked at me, smiled and blew me a kiss.
Brian got up from the chair where he had been sitting and went over to the buffet table to grab something to drink. "So Mikey, you're sticking around until Monday, right?"
"Yeah. Then I fly home to California."
"So do you guys want to do something as a group on Sunday?"
I looked over at Nick and smiled. "That would be fun," Nick said, "You have anything in mind yet?"
"No, but I'll look around and see if there is anything we can do in the area that's fun but sort of private."
"Cool, we're up for whatever you pick."
Gradually the rest of the guys took their turns in the bathroom and everyone was clean and ready for dinner. Personally, I was starving. I hadn't eaten since lunch and it was getting close to midnight. Kevin, Howie and AJ voted for Mexican food, something I would totally have been able to get into, although I seriously wondered if there was such a thing in Cleveland. Brian was yelling for pizza. Nick wanted to go to Ronald McDonald's. So we ended up going for Chinese.
Dinner was delicious in spite of Brian continuously asking the waiter for cheese and Nick trying to order a Big Mac. Fortunately we were in a secluded part of the restaurant because we definitely would have been classified as being on the rowdy side. But we had a good time and that's what really mattered.
When we left the restaurant, the limo went to Nick's and my hotel to drop us off before taking the rest of the guys out clubbing. "Whoa, this is a pretty nice place," AJ said. "How come we don't get to stay in places like this, Kev?"
"Our hotel isn't that bad," Kevin replied.
"Maybe not, but it's definitely not a Ritz Carlton! You guys have a spare bed I can use?"
"Um, no," Nick replied.
"How about if I sleep on the floor?"
"Um, no," I replied.
"So what's your room like?"
"It's a two bedroom suite," I muttered quietly.
"A two bedroom suite!" AJ repeated loudly. "Then there's plenty of room for me."
"Um, no there isn't," Nick and I said in unison as we got out of the limo. "You guys have fun tonight. I'll talk to you in the morning about lunch plans."
The driver closed the door and got back in the car and it pulled away from the front of the hotel to find the local hot spots. "Nick, don't you think we should go in the back way or split up?"
"Nah, it's pretty late and I'm sure it's safe here. No one knows I'm staying at this hotel."
Was that ever a mistake... We walked into the lobby and were going towards the elevator when I heard a voice behind us. "See Jeff, I told you Nick Carter was staying here. That's him with Mikey. He must be Mikey's boyfriend."
Well, that's it for Part 19 of Nick and the Altos. No promises as to when Part 20 will be out, but it won't be as long as this part took. Any comments, suggestions or whatever, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading... Mikey
