Where Chapter Six Left Off . . .


        "He is cute, Robby," said Nathan as they sat at the diner eating hamburgers.

        "He's an asshole," Robby said.

        "A cute one, though," said Nathan, smiling at him.

        "You don't know why I call him an asshole," said Robby.

        "True, but that's because you haven't told me," replied Nathan.

        "There's plenty of time for that discussion later," said Robby, putting him off.

        "Alright," said Nathan.

        The two boys were quiet for a while.  They both ate their meals and watched the other people in the diner.  Robby wasn't sure he wanted to share the story with Nathan.  He'd already told Daniel, and he still wasn't sure that it hadn't been a mistake.  He didn't know what he should or shouldn't tell any of them now.  He just hoped that Rick was keeping his mouth shut.

        "I saw the pool on my way to your room," he said.

        "Yeah, I got a look at it myself," said Nathan.  "Looked mighty inviting."

        "You think Luca will mind if we swim in it?"

        "I don't see why he would," said Nathan.  "After all, we live there, and we have to keep it clean."

        "Yeah," Robby laughed.  "Wanna go for a swim?"

        "Sounds great," said Nathan.  "You wanna ask the others?"

        "I'll pretend I didn't hear that," he replied.

Nathan:  a street hustler.

And Now

Settling In

        Robby sat in a chair watching Nathan float in the pool on his back.  They'd been swimming for almost two hours, and the sun was beginning to go down.  Robby's muscles had began to get tired, and he was getting cold.

        "So are you ready for your test results to come back?" asked Nathan as he pulled himself out of the pool.   He walked over to the chair beside Robby and grabbed his towel.

        "I'm not worried about it," said Robby, honestly.

        "That's a good attitude," said Nathan.  "We still going to the clinic together?"

        "Sure," said Robby.  "Maybe we can stop by the diner and get something to eat before returning for our day of hard labor."

        "That'd be nice," laughed Nathan.

        Robby was quiet again.   He'd been quiet a lot while they were swimming, and Nathan wondered just what he was thinking about.  He'd said he wasn't worried about the test results.  He supposed it might be what a negative result would mean with Luca, but he didn't think so.

        "Alright, what's got you so quiet?" asked Nathan after Robby was quiet for ten minutes.  "You said the test results don't worry you."

        "It's not that," said Robby, looking down at his tanned legs.  "I'm just homesick, I guess."

        "Homesick?" asked Nathan.

        "Stupid, I know," said Robby.

        "It's not stupid to be homesick," said Nathan.  "But, Robby, why did you come to Chicago?"

        Robby thought about the answer to that question.  He'd already told Daniel, and he was beginning to think that it had been a mistake.  Daniel was rude to Rick every chance he got.  But, he was really beginning to like Nathan.  He hoped he could trust him.

        "I was sleeping with my football coach," he said after a few minutes.  "I wasn't forced. I love Bill."

        "Ok," said Nathan.  "Then why did you leave?"

        "Rick found out about me and Bill," said Robby.  "He blackmailed me into having sex with him, and my father caught us."

        "Shit," breathed Nathan.

        "My father tried to shove his dick in my mouth," said Robby, cringing at the memory.  "I fought back. He said he knew how to treat queers, and I kicked him, I think. I don't know what happened, but the next thing I knew I was on the street running from the house."

        "You brought Rick to Chicago after that?" asked Nathan.

        "Rick is the one who gave me the money to get here," said Robby.  "He found me down the street from my house and shoved money into my hand. He told me how sorry he was, and he said I was near the bus station."

        "But why is he here?" asked Nathan.

        "My father told his parents about what happened," said Robby.  "I felt sorry for him, Nathan. I really did like Rick until he did this to me."

        "And now?" asked Nathan.

        "I have decided to put it in the past where it belongs," said Robby.  "It just isn't easy when I'm sharing a room with him."

        "Ask Jason to switch with you," said Nathan.  "They seem to be getting along rather well."

        "No," said Robby.  "I'll leave it alone. Rick isn't so bad."

        "But don't you hate him after what he did to you?" asked Nathan.

        "I thought I did," said Robby.  "But when I talked to him on the phone and heard how sorry he was for what happened, I realized that I didn't hate him."

        "Sorry for raping you?" asked Nathan.  "Or sorry for getting caught?"

        "He didn't rape me, Nathan," said Robby.

        "He forced you to have sex with him, Robby," said Nathan.  "He may not have held a gun to your head, but it's the same thing."

        "Do me a favor," said Robby.  "Don't act any different toward Rick."

        "Robby," said Nathan.  "He raped you."

        "He said that he'd always wanted to be with me," said Robby.  "He just went about it all wrong."

        They were silent for a while.  Robby wondered what Nathan was thinking.  He couldn't have him acting like Daniel.  Daniel had wanted to kick Rick's ass as soon as he'd told him what happened.  Robby had made him promise to leave him alone.

        "I won't say anything to him about it," said Nathan finally.  "But if he hurts you again . . ."

        "He won't hurt me again," said Robby.  "He didn't hurt me to begin with."

        "He didn't?" asked Nathan.  "Then why do you look so man when you see him?"

        "I just wish things had been different," said Robby.  "I liked Rick. I really liked him. I didn't even know he was gay, but we had other things in common. I thought we were friends."

        "You shouldn't be here, Robby," said Nathan.

        "What?" asked Robby.

        "I mean with Luca," said Nathan.  "You could be anywhere you want to be. You could have anyone you want."

        "Stop it," said Robby, blushing.

        "You're blushing," said Nathan.

        "What, you've never seen a person blush before?"

        "You don't get it," said Nathan.  "You usually walk around with fire in your eyes. You act like nothing fazes you in the least."

        "What are you talking about?" he asked.

        "I'm talking about the fact that you seem to be the most fearless guy in the world," said Nathan.   "You should hear the bite in your voice."

        "Oh believe me," said Robby.  "I am far from fearless."

        "You don't act like it," said Nathan, smiling.  "You should have seen the way you backed Luca down. He actually stopped to think about what he was saying to you. I've never seen him back down like that before. And Daniel. You can make that boy do anything you want."

        "I didn't stand up to Luca," said Robby.

        "Yes you did," said Nathan.  "I was there, remember?"

        "And Daniel does what he wants," said Robby.

        "Right," said Nathan.  "That's why every time you tell him to shut up, he does. Don't think I have noticed the way he talks to Rick. You told him all this, didn't you?"

        "I had a moment of weakness," said Robby.  "He wanted to pound the shit out of Rick, but I told him to leave him alone."

        "But he backs down when you tell him to stop," said Nathan.  "Don't you see the way that all of us look at you all the time?"

        "What are you talking about?" asked Robby.

        "You just act like nothing in the world bothers you," said Nathan.  "You are sexy as Hell, and the bulge in your trunks drives us all wild."

        "Stop it," said Robby, looking down at his legs again.

        "Robby, you are like Superman to us," said Nathan, smiling at him.  "You really don't get it, do you?"

        "I'm no Superman, Nathan," said Robby.  "Most of the time, I'm scared shitless. I cry sometimes at night when the lights are off, and I am terrified of this 'new business'."

        "You'll make it, Robby," said Nathan.


        Rick walked away from them.  They hadn't seen him standing there listening to every word that they said.  He'd made sure of that.

        Robby had said that he liked him.  He'd also said that he'd put what happened between them in the past where it belonged.  Rick couldn't believe it.  He wasn't too happy about the fact that Robby had told both Daniel and Nathan what had happened, but he'd said that he liked him!

        He'd suspected that Robby had told Daniel from the moment he'd first seen him.  Daniel had been rude and very provoking.  He knew he deserved it.  What he'd done to Robby was horrible.  Nathan had called it rape.  Rick had never thought about it that way, but he guessed that was exactly what he'd done.  It made him feel like a worm.

        He made up his mind that he would do whatever it took to make it up to Robby.  He didn't know if Robby would ever trust him again, but he was going to try to gain his trust.  Robby had said that he liked him, and he wanted to make sure that Robby liked him again.

        He turned on the television when he heard Robby unlock the door.  He was thankful when he saw that Robby was alone.  He didn't think he could face Nathan or Daniel right now.  He was sure that both of them hated him now.

        "How was your first day of hard labor?" asked Robby as he started to take off his swim trunks.

        "It wasn't too bad," said Rick, trying hard not to stare at Robby's ass as he bent over to grab his trunks off the floor. 

        "There's soda and a few other odds and ends in the fridge," said Robby as he stood back up.  He didn't make any attempt to hide his nudity from Rick. "Help yourself. I'm going to take a shower."

        "Thanks," said Rick, trying unsuccessfully not to stare at Robby's big dick as he turned to face him.

        "Nathan will probably be over in a few minutes or so," said Robby.  He noticed that Rick was staring at his dick.  He liked that.  He didn't want to have sex with Rick, but he liked the fact that Rick couldn't take his eyes off of him when he was nude.  "If he comes while I'm in the shower, just try not to talk to him too much."

        "No problem," said Rick.

        He didn't want Nathan to come over, but he couldn't tell Robby that.  He liked it when they were alone in their room together.  It almost felt like they were really together.   He wanted to be alone with Robby.  He needed to get started on gaining his trust again.

        He got up and walked over to the refrigerator.  The path from his bed to the refrigerator brought him within inches of Robby.  It took every ouch of his control not to reach over and rub Robby's naked ass.  He wanted him so bad.

        It was that wanting that had caused him to do what he'd done to Robby to begin with.  He knew that he had to figure out a way to control that wanting and pursue at least a friendship with Robby again.  He just wasn't quite sure how he was going to go about that.

        He looked up, and their gazes locked in the mirror.  There was a slight smile on Robby's face.   Rick was sure that he could see how much he wanted to touch him.  Was he laughing at him? Surely not.  But he supposed that he deserved it if he was.

        He walked on to the refrigerator as Robby turned to go into the bathroom.  He stood there staring at the closed bathroom door until he heard the water start running in the shower.   Then he crossed back to his bed and sat down with his soda in his hand.

        He sighed heavily.  How in the world was he ever going to get anywhere with Robby? He thought about him all the time, and he kept remembering what had happened between them.  He could kick himself for fucking everything up.

        The television droned on and on, but he wasn't paying any attention to it.  All he could think about was Robby.  He knew that he had it bad for him, but there wasn't anything he could do about it.  He wanted Robby, and Robby's indiference to him would eventually tear him apart.  He knew that without a shadow of a doubt.

        He was trying to figure out what to do to at least make Robby want to be his friend when he heard someone knock on the door.  He knew it was Nathan.  He really didn't want to answer the door.  Nathan was the last person he wanted to see right now.

        "Where's Robby?" asked Daniel when Rick opened the door to face the other person he didn't want to see.

        "I'm right here," said Robby from behind Rick.

        Daniel shoved his way past Rick, and sat on the end of Robby's bed.  Robby was standing there with only a towel wrapped around his waist.  He was running a comb through his wet hair, and Rick thought he'd never looked sexier.

        "I didn't know you were out of the shower," said Rick.

        "The television is loud," said Robby.

        "Yeah," he replied.  He went to turn it down.

        "So, did you and Luca just get back?" Robby asked Daniel.

        "No, we've been back for a little bit," replied Daniel.  "I'm supposed to come and get you."

        "What for?" asked Robby.

        "Luca wants you to stay with us tonight," said Daniel.  "He wants to take you shopping in the morning."

        "Shopping?" asked Robby, turning around to face Daniel.

        "Yes," said Daniel.  "You can't keep wearing my clothes."

        "I'll make my own money and buy my own clothes," said Robby, turning back to the mirror.

        "Are you crazy?" asked Daniel.  "Let him spend money on you, Robby."

        "I don't want to owe him anything," said Robby.

        "You won't owe him anything," said Daniel.  "You will pay him back out of what you make."

        Robby thought about that for a while.  He did need clothes, and he had to admit that he wouldn't have minded spending a little time with Daniel, either.  He needed to get his feelings straightened out about Daniel and Jason.

        He liked Daniel.  That he couldn't deny.  The qualities about him that had originally turned him off about him now attracted him.  It was strange, but it was true.   He also couldn't get having sex with him out of his mind.  He had loved it.   Daniel had been right about that.

        "Let me get a change of clothes together," said Robby, deciding that staying the night with Luca and Daniel might actually be interesting.

        "Cool," said Daniel.  He looked from Robby to Rick, and his expression changed from pleasant to hateful in an instant.

        "I'll only be a minute," said Robby, thinking that the longer Daniel was in the room, the more chance there was that he would jump all over Rick.  He didn't want that to happen.
