Green Eyes and Picket Fences

Chapter 4


Aidan and Travis ended up riding with Steve in his car because Tyler and Spence were going grocery shopping after lunch. Aidan still could have ridden with them to the restaurant, but after what Spence told him this morning he would just feel like a third wheel.

"Where are we going to?" Aidan asked when they were on the road.

Travis looked back at him from the passenger seat and said, "Georgiano's. It's a little Italian restaurant my ex used to take me to all the time."

"Speaking of the bastard child of Satan, is he still calling you?" Steve asked.

"A couple of days ago actually." Travis responded.

"What did he say?"

"Oh, the usual. I miss you, I love you, why won't you call me back?"

Steve snorted and gave Travis an `Are you serious' look.

Aidan's curiosity finally got the better of him and he asked, "What happened with your ex?"

"The usual, he couldn't keep his dick in his pants for more than an hour at a time." Travis supplied.

"An hour, try 10 seconds." Steve looked back at Aidan and said, "When Travis brought him out to the house the last time, he managed to hit on both Tyler and me when Travis went to the bathroom."

"Damn, You sure do know how to pick them." Aidan said jokingly to Travis trying to lighten the mood.

"Hey, you forget, I also have a thing for you. You should be saying I have the best taste in the world." Travis said and laughed when Aidan turned a deep shade of red.

"I love it when he blushes." Steve whispered to conspiratorially to Travis.

"Me too."

"We should make it a game. Who ever gets him to blush the most at lunch gets to sit in the back with him on the way home."


Aidan could not believe how they were discussing him like he wasn't even there. He was going to make sure he sat far away from those two. He'd sit in between Spence and Tyler if it became necessary. They were quiet for the rest of the ride and that left Aidan to wonder what exactly did they have in mind.

When the group arrived to Georgiano's they were given a private table near the back, since Travis knew the owner. It was a very nice restaurant and also very beautiful. Their waiter sat them at a circular table with a red and gold tablecloth. When Aidan sat down and saw that the napkin's were folded into swans. He was so stunned by the detail of the place that he ended up sitting between Travis and Spence and across from Steve and Tyler. 'Oh well,' Aidan said to himself. 'Better one than both.'

Actually, Aidan was glad he sat next to Travis. He was very curious as to how Travis knew the owner of the place and asked, after the waiter left with the order for the drinks.

"I wrote a piece about this place after I came here for the first time." Travis answered. "It was nothing really, but then Georgiano seems to think I did him some kind of favor."

"That's because you did." Aidan heard from behind him.

Travis looked behind him, smiled, and got up and hugged a man who looked to be about 45 years old from the streaks of gray in his hair.

"Georgiano, it's been ages since I last saw you." Travis said, after taking a step back to look at the older man. "Are you getting younger."

"Travis, I already love you like you are my own son; there's no need for flattery." Georgiano looked back at Aidan and said, "Travis was being modest. If it hadn't been for you, this place would still be a ghost town."

Travis waved Georgiano off saying; "I may have let people know you were here, but your food kept them here."

Georgiano laughed and said, "I missed you very much Travis. My wife asked me the other day when I was going to invite you and your partner over for dinner. Where is Blake anyway?"

Aidan felt you could cut the tension that question brought in the room with a knife. He saw Steve, Tyler, and Spence share an 'I wish he hadn't brought this up look' with each other before he heard Travis say, "We broke up a few weeks ago."

Before Georgiano could say anything else to make the atmosphere any more uncomfortable, Aidan decided to change the subject.

"You're a writer Travis?" He asked.

"Yeah." Travis answered, giving Aidan a grateful look. "I mostly do some freelance pieces and then sell the to the magazine who pays the most for it." "He sold the piece about my restaurant to a tourist magazine. First, I got the occasional tourist people, but after a while the locals started to come by as well." Georgiano put his arm around Travis and said, "You are the reason I'm still in business, so your lunch is on me today."

"Georgiano you can't pay for my meal every time I come here." Travis said, but Georgiano didn't seem to hear.

He just kissed both of Travis's cheeks and said, "I'll tell your waiter now. If you need anything else, just tell him and he'll come get me."

He then walked away and Travis sat back down at the table.

Travis sighed and said, "That man can be exasperating sometimes."

"Travis he's just grateful. Let the guy thank you if he wants to." Tyler said, giving his brother an exasperated look himself.

Travis just waved him off and looked at the menu.

Lunch was great. The group had a lot of fun just talking to each other, and about each other. The main topic of discussion turned out to be Spence's and Tyler's new relationship. Steve told an especially funny story about them making out at the refrigerator this morning.

With all the laughter going on, Aidan had totally forgotten about the bet Steve and Travis had made in the car. He was very surprised when a he felt a hand slide into his lap while he was laughing at Steve's imitation of Spence's moaning noises. As soon as he felt it he stopped laughing. Aidan felt the hand slide in-between his legs and rub the inside of his thigh. He grabbed Travis's wrist to stop it from moving then looked up to see if any one else had noticed his change in attitude. Spence was arguing with Travis, saying he didn't make the noises Steve said he did. The only person besides Travis to notice the difference was Steve. He gave Aidan a knowing smirk, then leaned over and whispered something in Travis's ear. Travis smiled and nodded. Aidan didn't know what Travis just agreed to, but he had a feeling he didn't want to.

He was right.

When Aidan felt a foot skimming up his leg he jumped out of his chair and said, "I have to go to the bathroom."

He practically ran from the table to the restroom he saw when he came into Georgiano's.

Aidan closed the door and then leaned back against it.

He had to face the truth. As long as he was around either Steve or Travis, he was in big trouble. He was going to wind up in one if not both of thier beds. Hell, he was already in Travis's. It was time for Aidan to stop pretending he didn't want them. Everyone in the house knew, so why was he still trying to delude himself. For his parents? Maybe, but Spence was right. What they didn't know wouldn't hurt them. It was then that Aidan heard a knock on the door. He opened it and saw it was Spence.

"What the hell is taking you so long? Are you sick?" Spence said, looking a little anxious. He put his hand to Aidan's forehead and said, "You are a little warm."

Aidan moved back and Spence dropped his hand back to his side.

"I'm fine Spence. I just felt a little queasy about something, but I feel better about it now. Really."

Spence looked at him a little skeptically then said, "Whatever. Let's go everyone is waiting outside for us." Spence turned around and walked to the door where Travis, Tyler, and Steve were saying goodbye to Georgiano.

"Don't take so long to come see me again Travis." Aidan heard Georgiano say when he walked up.

"I promise." Travis said, and hugged the older man and the group walked out the door.

While they were walking outside, Aidan pulled Travis to the side and said, "You're an ass hole you know that."

Travis laughed and said, "Only around cute guys."

Aidan smiled at that and asked Travis, "What did Steve say to you in there at the table?"

Travis stopped, looked at Aidan and said, "He just wanted to make sure I knew you were mine."

Aidan was so stunned by the confession he watched Travis's retreating back for a few seconds before following him to Steve's car, not knowing exactly what to feel about what Travis just said.

When Travis, Aidan, and Steve arrived home, they all went in their separate directions. Travis went to kitchen to grab a bottled water, Steve sat down in the living room to watch TV, and Aidan, having nothing better to do, went up to his room to grab a book to read. He had lain on the bed and had been reading for about ten minutes when Travis walked in the room. Aidan looked up from his book and smiled at Travis as he flopped on the bed.

"What are you reading?"

"The Imajica by Clive Barker." Aidan answered.

Travis laughed and said, "That's one of my favorite books. I love how everything is a circle, how it all comes back together in the end. It makes me believe in fate."

"I know exactly what you mean. This is my fifth time reading it, and I still find a whole new concept every time I pick it up."

Travis laughed at Aidan's enthusiasm. Aidan then blushed realizing how excited he had just become because he had found a common interest with Travis. When Aidan looked back up, Travis was still looking at him, but his expression had changed. He reached up and touched Aidan's cheek then brought his lips to meet Aidan's.

The kiss was chaste at first, as if Travis was making sure Aidan wouldn't run away. When he didn't pull back Travis deepened it.

Aidan had no idea lightning could strike the same place twice. Travis's tongue was doing things to Aidan's body that he had never felt before. The kiss was great. So good it left Aidan shuddering. He felt Travis's body move to lay on top of his and straddle one of his legs as he pulled back from the kiss.

"Only you have the ability to make me want to come, with just a kiss." Travis whispered to Aidan. "Open your eyes for me baby.

Aidan opened his eyes and looked up into Travis's. When Travis was sure he had his attention he lightly pushed his hips against Aidan's cock. Aidan moaned and his eyes glazed over as he grabbed Travis's hips. "That's it. Make more noise for me." Travis said, as he began to nibble on Aidan's neck.

Travis started to rock his hips at a steady pace that left Aidan shuddering against him. Aidan arched off the bed when Travis bit his nipple.

Travis then began to rock faster against Aidan. Aidan could tell Travis was close and opened his eyes just as Travis's body began climaxing against his. Aidan would never forget the look on Travis's face. It was pure ecstasy.

When Travis's body came down from it's high, he looked down at Aidan and kissed him. Aidan then felt a hand reach down for, and unbutton his jeans. Travis pulled Aidan's cock out and gave a tiny squeeze while he rubbed his thumb over the head.

Aidan's entire body shook and he moaned, "Travis stop fucking teasing me."

Travis laughed and said, "Alright, you win."

Aidan was so close it only took a few strokes to bring him over the edge.

He came, with Travis's name on his lips.

After Aidan came back down to reality he realized that Travis was no longer on top of him but beside him again. Aidan looked at Travis and was just about to speak when the door opened to their room.

"Well, am I interrupting something."

Travis sat up and looked toward the door and said, "Blake, I told you never to come back here."
