Chapter 114


New York City


Jonathan smiled, his blue eyes opening, the young man feeling a warmth against him.

He stared down at a blond hair-covered head laying against his smooth chest.

Colton was still asleep, his body against Jonathan's, his arms wrapped around him.

Awakening in the arms of an angel.

I could get used to this.
He smiled, the young man against him moving a bit, his arms tightening around him more.

Jonathan felt the warmth of the young man's smooth body against his side, that warmth echoing through Jonathan's soul.

He felt Colton's warm breath on his left nipple, the breeze hardening it.

Jonathan trembled, feeling his youthful friskiness, his center stretching his tightening briefs.

He also felt a deeper warmth rubbing against his own hip, sensing Colton's dreams were of youthful love.

Jonathan softly sighed, feeling his world had focused.

The young man against him moved again, Jonathan hearing Colton's soft voice filling the quietness of the bedroom, sensing the young man was indeed dreaming.

"Don't let me go. I'm going to fall!" his voice softly said, Jonathan feeling the young man's arms tightening even more around him.

Jonathan felt the young man's incredible strength, Jonathan actually feeling that strength trying to squeeze the life out of him.

"Colton? I'm here." Jonathan said, the young man against him suddenly relaxing, his head moving back a bit, Jonathan staring down at his now showing handsome young face.

He saw a soft smile on Colton's face, that smile making its beauty even more intoxicating.

His mouth was slightly open, his white teeth showing.

"The awakening smile of beauty." Jonathan softly said, the young man murmuring, his eyes flickering a bit.

Jonathan sensed Colton was on the edge of awakening.

Those two eyes suddenly opened, Jonathan staring into two soft bright blue pools of life.

"Colt! Your. . .your eyes are sparkling!" he softly said, Colton staring at the young man he lay against.

Jonathan stared at him, seeing soft sparkling lights in the young man's blue pools, Colton backing up a bit, his hold on the older man lessening.

"Good. . .good morning, Jon. I'm. . .I moved in the night." he said, realizing he was holding the young man in his arms.

"No worries, Colt. I actually awoke wrapped in your embrace. Don't mind it at all." he smiled, Colton staring at his handsome beautiful face.

Colton softly blushed, his arms releasing the young man, Jonathan sighing a bit, feeling the loss of the closeness.

Colton moved back onto his back, Jonathan glancing over his smooth muscled chest, Colton's blush deepening as he glanced at Jonathan's revealed smoothness.

His blue eyes softly glanced at the young man's boxer briefs, seeing the large tent showing.

Jonathan blushed, pulling the blankets up more, covering it, Colton feeling his own morning friskiness suddenly.

The two looked at each other, Jonathan smiling softly.

"Morning reality, Colt. We're both young, happy and normal."
Colton smiled, feeling the sincerity, calmness and friendship in Jonathan's voice.

He also sensed his chivalrous heart.

"I guess it is normal."
"Circumstances notwithstanding." Jonathan smiled, his blue eyes meeting Colton's.

The younger man smiled, his sudden nervousness gone.

"Someone's a horn dog."

Jonathan laughed, his wide smile softening Colton's heart, seeing so much beauty in that smile.

"I'm nineteen, Colt. I'm a guy."
Colton laughed, Jonathan smiling more.

"Well, I ain't your bitch! So keep that monster caged!"

Jonathan laughed, Colton joining him.

The two smiled at each other, Jonathan's smile softening.

"I would never take advantage of you, Colt. If we ever. . .if you ever decide. . .I would never without. . ." he softly said, Colton smiling and leaning forward, their lips meeting in a soft, quick kiss.

Jonathan felt his heart melt, Colton feeling the same thing.

The two parted, their blue eyes opening and staring at each other, Jonathan seeing the sparks returned to Colton's blue eyes.

"Wow." he softly said, Colton smiling.

"Have to keep the monster living." he said, Jonathan chuckling.

"Keep doing that and he'll roar."

Colton laughed, the young man moving, snuggling against Jonathan's side again, the older youth smiling, his arm going around Colton's back.

The two smiled, their friendship at a more intimate place now.

"You're warm and smooth, Jon."

"You're the same, Colt. I awoke as I said happy."

Colton smiled, their eyes meeting again, Colton's head on Jonathan's shoulder.

"Where do we go from here, Jon?"
The man sighed, staring at his friend.

"I guess we let our friendship and love grow, Colt. I'd like that."
Colton smiled, nodding his head, his hand going against Jonathan's warm, smooth chest.

"I'd like that as well."

Jonathan smiled, feeling Colton's touch.

"Awesome! I already have a place in mind for the ceremony."

Colton laughed, Jonathan smiling at his rich high octave laugh.

"Not unless I'm pregnant, stud!" Colton laughed, slapping Jonathan's abs.

Jonathan laughed, Colton smiling at him.

"You were talking in your sleep, Colt. Were you having a bad dream?"
Colton's face softened, the young man moving against Jonathan again, his arm pulling him closer.

"I always have bad dreams, Jon. My life's emotional in both realms. Sleep and reality." he softly said, Jonathan kissing his forehead.

"You're so courageous, Colt. In the beauty of your soul and the tragedy of your life's path. I'm here to make the future  brighter. In any way I can."

Colton smiled, snuggling against him again.

Jonathan saw a look cross his young face, the youth looking thoughtful and pensive.

"I've felt so alive these last few months, Jon. Lucas' love and friendship seems like heaven to me. After. . .after the hell I walked through. The lonely hell of my lost soul."
Jonathan hugged him closer.

"Lucas' love feeds all our hearts, Colty. That love brought you to me."

Colton's head raised staring at the young man.


Jonathan smiled, Colton smiling at his handsome face.

"Working on a pet name for you."

Colton smiled, blushing a bit.

"So, what are we now? Boyfriends?"

Jonathan smiled, staring into his blue eyes.

"We're whatever you want us to be, Colt. I respect you enough to let you decide. My friendship is here for you."

Colton smiled, hearing the honesty and love in the young man's voice.

"Well, I'd like to experience my first love." he softly smiled, Jonathan smiling more.

"Wait here then. I'll go get Justin."

Colton laughed, slapping Jonathan's abs again, the young man joining him in his laughter.

"Thanks, but I can only handle one monster at a time." Colton smiled, Jonathan blushing again, Colton leaning in and kissing his lips again.

"I've never. . ." he softly said, Colton smiling.

"Neither have I, Jon. Let's deal with that together if it ever comes up." he said, Jonathan smiling.

"It's already up, sexy."

Colton blushed, Jonathan laughing as the younger man groaned.

"And don't think I didn't notice the other monster lurking around here. I think he's even bigger and fiercer."

Colton laughed, blushing now himself.

Jonathan smiled, the young man smiling at his friend.

"Let's go at our pace, Colty. Together as one."

Colton smiled, the young man sitting up, smiling down at the man beside him.

"Right now let's hit the showers. Then I'd like to make the guys breakfast. We can call Justin and Lance over." he smiled, Jonathan smiling as well.

"Alright, Colty."

Colton smiled, staring at the young man.

"You go first, my Jonathan."

Jonathan smiled, hearing the tenderness in Colton's words.

The young man moved, climbing out of bed, Colton's blue eyes scanning every inch of the youth's toned smooth form.

He saw the tent in the youth's briefs had softened, but it was still predominant.

"Monster indeed."
Jonathan smiled, blushing but smiling.

The youth grabbed his clothes off the chair, smiling and carrying them out of the bedroom towards the bathroom.

Colton smiled, sitting alone in bed.

Wow, you're so beautiful.

And so warm.

I could get used to your warmth so easily.

And your smile I sense is only for me.

The young man smiled, a single tear suddenly showing on his smooth cheek.

He absentmindedly wiped it off, looking at the closed door.

I feel something more, Jon.

I think it's love.

I need you to love me, my Jonathan.

The young man smiled, rising and walking over to the closet.

He scanned his hanging clothes, searching for a special outfit to make his man smile.


Finn stretched his arms, two other arms wrapped around his muscular hairy chest.

He and Skyler walked into the kitchen, Finn stretching his arms over his head as the aromas hit them.

"Morning, guys. Look, Jon! It's still alive!!!" Colton said, his face of fake fear making Jonathan's laughter fill the room.

Finn rolled his eyes, Skyler chuckling in his arms.

"I rewired him, guys. He's more subdued now." she laughed, the two teenagers joining her, Finn blushing.

"You're all twisted. Don't I get hugs?" he smiled, Colton wiping his hands on a dishcloth, having been washing some pans in the sink.

He smiled, walking up to Finn and hugging him tight, Finn smiling and kissing the young man's cheek.

Skyler was hugging Jonathan, the young man having been at the stove cooking.

"Something smells good." she smiled, the older couple trading youths, Finn smiling as Jonathan hugged him.

"We wanted to cook breakfast, guys." he smiled, Finn patting his back.

Trish and Andrew walked into the kitchen as well, the two teenagers smiling at both, more hugs exchanged, Finn smiling and heading for the coffee pot, its deeper aroma drawing him first.

"Don't flirt with the monster till he's had his coffee." Skyler smiled, Finn winking at her, the man filling several mugs, Jonathan smiling at Colton.

"A wise move." he said, Colton blushing, knowing Jonathan had already had a cup of coffee.

Finn smiled at the two youths, lightly chuckling to himself, the man handing everyone a mug of warm coffee, the man carrying the carafe over to the table, everyone joining him, the two teenagers returning to the stove and counter.

"We've got breakfast just about ready. Justin's on his way over with Lance." Jonathan smiled, Colton smiling at him.

"Let's eat quickly, guys.  Those two will be ravenous." Finn laughed, Jonathan smiling at the Welshman.

"They sounded very content and happy to me when I called. I think they've already dined on love this morning." he said, Colton smiling at his young friend.

"That's a meal unto itself. And the best." Finn smiled, Skyler smiling at him.

Trish and Andrew traded looks, Jonathan and Colton smiling at each other.

They saw the two couples looking at each other's soulmate with deep love.

"Double the food for us, Colty." he said, Colton smiling widely.

Finn smiled, having caught the nickname, his smile now changing into a grin.

"Ah young love. It will always hunger for more." he grinned, Skyler staring at him with confusion.

"Meaning what, Frankie?" she said, Colton laughing, Andrew looking at Finn.

"Frankie?" he said, Trish showing confusion as well.

Skyler smiled, kissing her man's lips.

"The monster of my heart. The boys were watching a horror movie when we left last night."

Trish smiled, laughing at Finn, the Welshman blushing.

"It suits him. He lumbers through life, a combination of many human parts."
Finn smiled, Skyler smiling again and kissing him again.

"Yep. Love, laughter, beauty and amazing fingers."

Jonathan laughed, Finn's blue eyes meeting his.

"You dissing my lady?"

Jonathan blushed, Colton smiling at him.

"No, Finn. I just found it funny how she focused on your fingers, all eleven of them." he smiled, Finn smiling at him.

"I have one for you, friend." he said, Finn raising one finger, Colton laughing loudly.

"Look, Jon! It's so small."

Jonathan laughed, Finn blushing, catching the double entendre.

Finn's smile widened.

"So are you two just going to act like smartasses, or are we going to hear the news?" he said, folding his arms, staring at both young men.

Jonathan's blue eyes met Colton's, the young man shrugging his shoulders.

"What news, Finn? Justin never told us anything about last night's romance." Jonathan said, Finn laughing, Skyler smiling at him.
Trish and Andrew looked confused, their eyes meeting Skyler's.

"Another path of love. Our Lukey's been on the move." she said, Finn smiling at his fiancée, the Welshman rising to his feet from his seat, walking over to the two staring young men.

One hand went to each shoulder, the man standing between them.

"I think you should both open your hearts to the fact of our friend's unseen guidance."

Colton and Jonathan's faces showed surprised shock, Finn laughing.

"He didn't tell me, but you both just did." he said, patting both shoulders.

"What's going on, Finny?" Trish said, looking at the three, Andrew staring at the three as well.

Skyler smiled, rising from her seat, walking up to the two young men, Finn smiling at his soulmate.

"We don't know the details, and it's really none of our business. But we see the shining happiness of found love." she smiled, Jonathan staring at her.

He was blushing, Colton staring at him, seeing his distress.

The young man moved, Finn smiling as he went to Jonathan's side, his arm going around him.

"I think they've clued into our new relationship, Jon." he said, Jonathan's blue eyes meeting his.

Jonathan saw a lot of strength and love in those blue pools, all directed at him.

The young man smiled, finding the courage he needed.

His blue eyes went to the table, Trish and Andrew staring at both with surprise.

"Colton and I have discovered some new feelings for each other. We're exploring a deeper love between us. I'm falling in love with him. I'm gay, everyone." he said, Colton staring at him with happiness and with some surprise, their blue eyes meeting.

"Yes, Colty. I'm falling in love with you. I feel more than friendship."

Colton softly smiled, their eyes locked on each other.

"Well kiss him, Colt." Skyler smiled, Colton smiling, moving forward, the two kissing tenderly, then parting.

Finn smiled, his hands going to their shoulders again.

"Young love, it's amazing. As is our Lukey." he laughed, his blue eyes going around to everyone.

"His love travels everywhere. And surprises us all."

Jonathan and Colton both smiled, Finn's eyes filled with friendship and love.

"Let's sit down, guys. We want to hear all about it." Skyler said, Jonathan looking at Finn.

"I didn't know about it, Jon. He surprised even me. But it wasn't hard to see." he smiled, Colton smiling, his hand going in Jonathan's.

"We have to wait for Justin and Lance. Let's tell them our story." he said, Jonathan smiling.

"Does Justin know about your life, Jon?" Finn said, the young man's head shaking no.

Finn's arm went around the youth.

"He loves you, Jon. He'll be happy for both of you." the Welshman said, Colton smiling at him.

He followed Finn and Jonathan to the table, their new relationship about to be revealed.


Lance fought against the love, pushing his man's lips back from his, one of Justin's hands in his back pocket, the two locked in a desirous embrace.

"Calmness, babe. We're in public." he smiled, Justin licking his warm lips, smiling at him.

"You are amazing, my love. I can't stop wanting to touch you." Justin said, snuggling against his man, the two in an elevator, heading up to Orion's condo.

"You've been touching me all morning, babe. If I was a crime scene you'd be the main suspect."

Justin laughed, smiling at his man.

"I'm guilty alright. Of loving you too much."
Lance smiled, leaning forward and kissing his man's lips again.

"I sentence you to life. With me."

"And I'll never ask for parole."

Lance smiled, the two still close together.

"Watch it, babe. I hear the schmaltz police coming."

The two laughed together, the elevator dinging, the doors opening.

The two broke their embrace, walking out onto the floor of the group's condo.

They stopped at the condo's door, Justin's arms going around him again, once he'd checked the hallway, finding it empty.

"I love you, Lance. Thank you for the magic of your love. Last night and this morning. I'm totally in love with you again."

"I never stopped loving you, babe."
Justin smiled, the two leaning against the door, kissing again.

The door suddenly opened, the two falling forward, landing on the carpeted floor of the condo's foyer.

Finn smiled down at both, grinning widely.

"Nice of you to drop in." he laughed, Justin looking up at him, the man laying on top of Lance.

"Sorry, we were just. . ."

"Copping a feel? Playing lip tag? About to do the nasty?" Finn laughed, Justin blushing and rising to his feet, helping Lance gain his.

The two men blushed, Finn laughing, his arms going around both, kissing each on the cheek.

"I'd kiss you on the lips, but I know where they've been. Purell anyone?" he laughed, Justin smiling.

"They've been in heaven." he smiled, Lance smiling.

Finn smiled, seeing their love shining.

"A lot of that going around this morning. On different levels. I think you two were at the peak." he smiled, then laughed.

"Lukey and his mischievous, giving soul. Simply amazing." he smiled, releasing the two, smiling at both.

"Breakfast is ready. Come on boys. Join the love." he grinned, the two smiling at him, the three walking to the kitchen.

Everyone around the table smiled at the three as they walked into the room, Jonathan in his brother's arms immediately, the two hugging tightly.

"Morning, Jus! You look beyond happy!" he smiled, the young man then hugging Lance just as tightly, Lance kissing his cheek.

"I am, squirt. I'm wrapped in Lance's love." he smiled, Colton hugging him next, the two new people hugged by everyone.

"Great place to be, Justin. His love mirrors yours." Trish smiled, kissing Lance's cheek.

Lance raised his finger, Trish staring at the ring.

"Look what Jus gave me! It's a family heirloom. I'm part of his family now!" he smiled, tears showing in his green eyes.

Justin raised his hand smiling, everyone seeing his ring.

"Lance's space program ring. His most cherished treasure. He gave it to me."

Skyler smiled, seeing the romance in the gifts, kissing his cheek.

"You are now the treasure of his heart. And it's beautiful!" she smiled, looking at the ring.

Lance smiled, his arm going around his man.

"Well he is out of this world." he smiled, the two kissing.

"Most aliens are!" Finn laughed, Justin blushing.
"Eat, Frankie." Skyler said, Finn laughing, sitting down again.

Justin looked at Skyler, Jonathan smiling at his brother.

"A long story, Jus. But Finn's the joke in it."

Justin laughed, the Welshman blushing at him.

"This I have to hear!"

Jonathan smiled, kissing Lance's cheek.

"You two sit down. Prepare for a feast. Colton's and my feast!" he beamed, Colton smiling at him, the two teenagers smiling and walking over to the stove.

Lance smiled, keeping his thoughts to himself, guiding his man to the table.


Justin sighed, leaning back in his chair, Lance rubbing his stomach.

"You're going to burst, babe. Three platefuls?"

Finn laughed, finishing off his fourth plate, Skyler rolling her eyes.

"He's bottomless."
"He needs energy, babe. Round three's just around corner." Finn winked, Skyler smiling at him.

"I'm already pregnant, babe. You're just doing it for the enjoyment."

Everyone smiled, Finn smiling at his soulmate, kissing her cheek.

"The best part. That and your beauty."

Andrew and Justin were making gagging noises, their loves smacking them lightly on the head, both blushing.

"Sorry, my love." they both said together, Lance and Trish both smiling.

"Well trained they are, Lancy." Trish said, Lance winking at her.

"Bitches usually are." he said, Andrew laughing.

"They love their masters." he said, Lance smiling at his man.

"And their masters love them." he said, Justin smiling, their lips meeting.

"Okay, enough love. Frankie's electrodes are sparking." Skyler said, Justin laughing mid kiss with Lance.

Lance smiled as they parted, his green eyes meeting Finn's blushing face.

"Our loveable monster. Love the nickname, Finny.  Alain's so going to abuse you with it!"

Everyone laughed, Finn blushing more.

"Please for the love of God, don't tell him!" he said, Justin laughing.

"Where's the fun it that, Finn?" Jonathan said, Finn smiling at him.

"Fun's everywhere. Sometimes surprising. Right, Jon?" the Welshman smirked, Skyler's hand slapping his shoulder.

Justin's face smiled at his brother, Jonathan's blue eyes meeting his.

"Did you two boys have fun last night? How were the movies? Other than the horror one." Justin smiled, Colton quietly looking at him.

"It was fun, Jus. Colton and I have the same tastes." Jonathan said, Finn smirking, Skyler looking at him with a soft threat on her face.

The Welshman blushed, lowering his eyes.

Lance's green eyes were watching him and Jonathan, the man remaining silent, his hand going in Justin's, Justin smiling at him, squeezing it.

Lance saw a look of thoughtful reflection cross Jonathan's face, the man seeing Colton's blue eyes looking at him.

He watched Colton's hand going to Jonathan's shoulder, the young man looking at him.

"We've fast become friends." Colton smiled, Jonathan smiling at him.
"Awesome, guys! I knew you'd like each other." Justin smiled, sipping his coffee, the two teenagers looking at each other again.

Jonathan suddenly sighed, his blue eyes meeting his brother's, everyone around the table sensing the building truth.

"I need to tell you something, Justin." he said, Justin smiling at his brother.

"Okay, Jon. Do you want to talk privately?" he smiled, Jonathan sighing again.

"No, Jus. Everyone--well most everyone--here knows about this." he said, Justin glancing around at everyone, meeting all their compassionate looking faces.

"What is it, Jon? Is something wrong?" Justin said, his voice softening, a look of worry showing on his face now, Lance squeezing his hand again, kissing his man's cheek.

"I think you need to listen to your brother, Jus." he said, their eyes meeting, Justin seeing deep love in his man's green pools.

Justin's blue eyes went to Jonathan's blue, the young man staring at his brother with deep wide eyes.

"Alright, Jon. What's going on?"

The young man sighed again, suddenly feeling a warmth go in his hand under the table.

Another hand had joined with his, two blue pools meeting his.

Justin, across the table, was staring at both young men, seeing a look cross between them.

His confused blue eyes suddenly met two youthful blue eyes of sibling love.

And the next words surprised Justin to his soul.

"I'm gay, Justin. And I've fallen in love with Colton."

Justin stared at his brother, all the life going out of Justin's face.

Lance stared at him, seeing the emotion and turmoil cross his handsome face.

"Are you alright, babe?" he said, Justin not looking at him, only staring forward at his younger brother.

"I love him, Justin. Our friendship has joined on a higher level." he said, staring at his older brother.

Justin hadn't moved, staring in silence at his brother.

"Say something, Justin. Please?" Jonathan said, Colton's hand squeezing his, his own blue eyes staring at his older friend across the table.

Justin moved now, rising from the table.

The man walked out of the kitchen, not saying a word.

Lance stared after him, his love flowing towards his soulmate.

Jonathan lowered his eyes, tears showing.


Lance began to rise from his seat, everyone staring at Jonathan, Colton's arm now around him.

"Please sit down, Lance." Jonathan said, his eyes raising again, staring at the singer.

Lance slowly sat down, staring at the youth.

"He needs a moment alone, Lance. You know he needs silence when he's hurting." Jonathan softly said, Colton staring at his friend.

"He's not hurting, Jon. He's just confused. You just totally surprised him. He didn't see it coming." Lance said, their eyes meeting.

"But you did?" the young man said, Lance softly smiling at him.

"Lucas' love spreads far, Jon. I saw the love behind his plans. And I saw your own true heart hidden beneath them. I'm glad you took the path forward. Justin just needs to understand that. He still and always will love you. And I'm happy for both of you."
Colton smiled, Jonathan rising from his seat, Colton slowly rising as well, the young man walking around the table, Lance rising from his seat now.

The man smiled at the younger man, opening his arms, Jonathan rushing into them.

Lance smiled, hugging him close, the youth crying against his chest, Colton walking up to both men, rubbing Jonathan's back.

"It's okay, Jonah." he softly said, continuing to rub his boyfriend's back.

Jonathan's head rose, staring into his blue eyes.


Colton smiled, his eyes meeting Lance's.

"The uncertainty of your brother's love is the whale that's devoured us, Jonathan. We both have to live and work together to free him of his concerns. Then a richer love awaits us. The love of our brothers." he smiled, Jonathan tearing up, Lance's hand going to the younger man's shoulder, Colton's blue eyes meeting his.

"I think Lucas has given me a hole for all of us to escape through. And then we can be loved. Let me talk to him."

The young man smiled, quietly walking out of the kitchen.


Justin stood on the balcony, staring out into the morning sunshine, a cool breeze hitting his face.
He trembled, the coolness of the late September morning seeping through his light clothes.

"Put this on, Justin."
The man sighed, turning and staring into two youthful blue eyes.

Colton stood at the entrance to the living room's balcony, a leather jacket extended in his hand, the young man wearing his own jacket.

Justin reached out, taking the jacket and putting it on.

Colton stared at him, the man turning back to the view.

"I need to be alone for a bit, Colton." he said, Colton staring at him.

"I'm sorry you're mad at me, Justin."
Justin turned, staring at the young man.

"What have you done to my brother, Colt? What. . .what have you done with him?"

The young man walked out into the sunshine, standing beside Justin.

"I haven't done anything, Justin. We've only talked. He only opened up his heart, that's it. A heart that's been hurting for a while."

Justin stared at the young man, Colton not looking at him.

"My brother's been hurting?"

Colton's face moved, their eyes meeting.

"Yes, Justin. He's known for a while his true feelings in regards to life, love and happiness. And no one was more surprised than me when he showed me that truth."

"Why couldn't he talk to me? I've always been there for him."

Colton smiled, Justin staring at him.

"He knows that, Justin. He knows you love him. I guess he just felt a better connection with me. The two of us able to talk on the same youthful level."
"What did you two do?"

"We only talked, Justin. We talked of life and what we want out of it. And we have kissed."
Justin lowered his eyes, staring out into the sunshine.

"You're both too young for this, Colton. Jonathan especially."

Colton sighed, his hand going on top of Justin's, which was on the railing.

"He's not a child anymore, Justin. He's nineteen. And I'm almost eighteen. We're both young men."

Justin's eyes moved, staring at Colton.

"Why don't you talk to me about what's really bothering you, Justin? What your brother's confession of our new love means?"

The man trembled, Colton sighing again.

"I'm sorry I'm not what you want for your brother, Justin. I'm sorry that you're worried about the path I walk. The danger that perhaps surrounds me. I've always felt your protective love surrounding me. It's almost as large as Lucas'. And now I feel the worry and trembling concern in your heart for your brother's safety. It mirrors your own feelings for me, and for Lucas. You're afraid that being with me will lead him into danger."

Justin's eyes showed tears, his arm going around the younger man.

"I'm sorry, Colt. I can't but be concerned about Jonathan's safety. He's my brother, I love him so much! And I love you also." Justin said, Colton's body moving against his, Justin's arms wrapping around him.

"He loves you too, Justin. I would never want him to be put in danger. I think it's best if he and I just remain friends. What he's wanting would only endanger him. I can't let that happen to him."
Justin gently pushed the young man back, staring into his blue tearful eyes.

"You. . .you would do that for him? You'd forgo your own happiness to keep him safe?"

Colton nodded, their eyes meeting again.
"Yes, Justin. I could do no less for him." Colton softly said, the two staring at each other, Justin seeing the tears in those beautiful blue eyes.

"You have feelings for him, don't you?" Justin said, the young man staring out at the view.
"I've never met anyone like him, Justin. I've been so alone all my life. Being with him makes my soul feel less alone. I think I'm. . .." he softly said, his eyes lowering.

Justin's arm went around him again, holding him close.

"I'm sorry, Colton. I didn't see the underlying truth here. I love my brother so much. I now see that you care about him also."

Colton raised his head.

"I do, Justin. He's my friend. And he's your brother. We both want what's best for him."
Justin softly smiled, hearing more in Colton's voice.

"I think you both should let me decide what's best for myself."

Justin and Colton both turned, Jonathan standing in the balcony's doorway, the young man staring at Colton.

"How. . .how much of that did you hear, Jon?" Colton said, the young man walking out onto the balcony.

"I heard all of it, Colt. Both sides of both your protective love." he said, Justin staring at his brother.

Colton's cheeks softly blushed, Jonathan smiling at him.

"Could I have a moment alone with my brother, Colt?" he said, Colton nodding.

The young man moved, walking past Jonathan, the young man's hand going to his shoulder, Colton stopping and staring into his blue eyes.
"Don't go far, Colty. We have to talk as well."

Colton softly smiled, the young man quietly walking back into the living room, closing the balcony door behind him.

Two green eyes met his, Colton feeling Lance's arms wrap around him, the man guiding him to all their friends surrounding them.


Jonathan stared at his brother, Justin lowering his eyes.

He moved, walking over to a settee, sitting down, patting the spot beside him.

Jonathan softly smiled, walking over to his brother and sitting down beside him.

"I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner, Justin." the young man said, Justin quietly staring at him.

"I'm mad at you, Jon."
The young man's cheeks softened with blush, Justin sighing again.

"We've always been tight, Jon. There was never anything we couldn't talk to each other about. Why didn't you confide in me? This would never have changed my love for you."

"I'm sorry, Jus. I should have been honest with you sooner. I just wasn't even honest with myself. Not till last night."

"What happened last night, Jon?"

"I looked into Colton's blue eyes, Jus. I saw in them the reality of what I wanted in life. I wanted his love. I feel his love in my soul now. I'm sorry if you can't accept that." the young man said, tears showing in his eyes.

Justin's blue eyes met his brother's, Justin opening his arms.

The young man moved, Justin hugging his brother close.

"Oh, Jon! I can accept your love for each other. I'm beginning to see it so easily now. I saw it deeply in your eyes just now. And I just saw it hidden in Colt's."

"I love him, Jus. Is that crazy? So soon falling in love with him?"

"There is love at first sight, Jon. I had that with Lucas."

The young man raised his head, staring into his blue eyes.

"You and Lucas? You were. . .?"

Justin smiled, kissing his brother's cheek, wiping the tears away from it.

"We were first--and always will be--friends. I fell in love with him, or should I say lust with him. He fell only into friendship with me. And he led me to my heart's greatest dreams."
Jonathan smiled, Justin rubbing his back.

"I think he's done the same with me, Jus. He told me to come here, to find a greater happiness in New York. I never imagined it would be this overwhelming. It's so amazing, so electrifying."
Justin softly smiled, seeing  the look in his brother's blue eyes.

"You really like him, don't you?"
Jonathan smiled, their eyes meeting again.

"Yes, Jus. I've never met anyone like him. He makes me feel. . ."

Justin nodded, understanding what the young man was trying to express.

"Have you. . .have you experimented with this yet?"

Jonathan softly blushed, Justin smiling at him.

"I haven't done anything, Jus. With either sex."

Justin smiled, understanding the values of his brother's heart.

"When did you grow up so fast, Jon?"
The young man smiled, staring at him.

"We've been apart, Jus. I'm not a child anymore."
"Yes, so Colton just made me realize. So you've done so as well."

The young man nodded, looking out at the view.

"I'm beginning to really like him, Justin. And I want to find something more with him. I don't know where that will lead us, I only know I want to experience life with him being a part of it."

Justin smiled, nodding his head.

"I understand, Jon. And I love you, and worry about you. I hope you can understand that?"

"I do, Jus. You'll always be my big brother. And I'll always love you. But you have to let me make my own choices. This I believe is my greatest choice. And I choose Colton."

Justin smiled, Jonathan smiling at him.

"I know he's different, Jus. What his life entailed, and perhaps what lays ahead for him with Lucas. That doesn't change how I feel about him. I want to get to know him, I want to. . .I want to love him."

Justin nodded his head, the man hugging his brother close.

"All I want is for both of you to be happy, Jon."

"We both want that as well, Jus. And I think we can find that happiness together."

Justin smiled, patting his brother's back.

"We should get back in there. I know two men in there are lost without us."
Jonathan smiled, looking towards the living room.

"It's amazing, Jus. This feeling I have. I've never felt it before."

Justin smiled, kissing his brother's cheek.

"It truly is, Jonathan. Let's go spread it."

Jonathan smiled, the door of the balcony opening, two green eyes meeting two sets of blue.

"It's freezing out here, you two." Lance smiled, Jonathan smiling and rising to his feet.

"My bro needs some loving, Lance. You'll warm him up in no time."

Lance nodded his head, walking out onto the balcony, Jonathan hugging him, the two smiling at each other.

"Colton's in his room. Go find your own warmth."

Jonathan beamed, looking back at his brother, Justin smiling at him.

The young man walked into the living room, closing the door behind him.

Lance smiled at his man, walking over to him, sitting down beside him, Justin moving, Lance's arms wrapping around him.

"The warmth I love." he softly said, Lance smiling and kissing his forehead, Justin's head against his heart.

"I'm here always, babe."

Justin smiled, raising his head, their lips meeting.

They both felt the love in the kiss, breaking it and looking into each other's eyes.

"You knew, didn't you?"

Lance smiled, kissing his man's lips again.

"I sensed it and saw it, my love. I had hoped you had, too."

"Maybe I did, Lance. Maybe I just couldn't grasp its meaning, though."

"You're not a stupid man, Justin. I think you really see what's in their hearts."
Justin smiled, nodding his head.

"The same thing that's in my heart. Love."
Lance smiled, Justin staring at him.

"I love him, Lance. He's my brother. And I love Colton even more now. And I feel the greater love in all this."
Lance smiled again, Justin smiling at him.

"You feel his love in this as well?"

"Yes, Lance. Lucas saw what both needed. And I guess I now have another brother."

Lance smiled wider, their lips meeting again.

"They both love you, Justin. We've both gained a new brother."

"And I think we've gained something more, Lance."
"I agree, Justin. I think it's time we met that love head on."
Justin smiled, their lips meeting again, Lance feeling Justin's total love.


A tap came to the bedroom door, Colton bidding enter.

Jonathan walked into the room, his blue eyes staring at Colton's naked chest.

The young man smiled at him, pulling his new t-shirt over his smooth chest, the young man finishing dressing.

He'd taken a quick shower, sensing Justin and Jonathan had a lot to talk about.

He smiled, walking across the room, his arm going around Jonathan.

"Are you okay, Jon? How did it go with Justin?"

Jonathan smiled at him, the young man leaning in and lightly kissing Colton on the lips.

"It went fine. We need to talk, Colty."

Colton smiled, hearing the tenderness in that name.

Jonathan walked over to the freshly made bed, Colton having quickly made it up.

He sat down on the bed's edge, patting the spot beside him.

Colton walked over, sitting down beside him.

"Did you mean those words, Colt? That you'd only want us to be friends?" he said, Colton staring into his blue eyes.
Jonathan stared at him, seeing the sparks again in those deep blue pools.

Colton moved, his head going against Jonathan's chest, the man's arms wrapping around him.

"No, Jon. I don't think I could ever settle for just that. I think I want something. . .I know I want something more. I. . .I think I'm falling for you."

Jonathan smiled, holding him close.

"Oh, Colt."

The young man's head raised again, their lips meeting again.

This kiss was deeper, edged with romance, desire and need.

Jonathan became lost in it, the young man moving back, Colton moving with him.

The two lay back on the bed, wrapped around each other, feeling the love filling their souls.

Colton reluctantly broke the kiss, their eyes opening and staring at each other.
"Wow." they both said together, both smiling.

Colton sat up, Jonathan smiling and sitting up again as well.

"That was amazing, Colt." he smiled, Colton smiling more.

"More than amazing." he softly said, Jonathan's arm going around him again.

"My brother loves us both, Colt. He's agreed to let us find in each other what we want to find."

Colton smiled, his lips meeting Jonathan's again, the two kissing again.

"Awesome!" he said, smiling as he broke the kiss, Jonathan showing a soft look of wonder on his face.


Colton smiled, taking the young man's hand in his.

"Let's go show them what we want to find. Happiness."

Jonathan smiled, the two rising and walking out of the room hand in hand.
