Damon was still getting dressed
as Jeff grabbed his Marine ball cap putting it on backwards.
"What?" Jeff asked.
He heard Damon snicker and looked in mirror over his dresser to see
the silly grin.
"That," Damon pointed
to the cap, "that is so out of style."
"No way dude,
everyone's doing it." He grabbed Damon and gave him a quick kiss and
ran his hands across his firm pecs.
"Yeah right, last year.
You need to look around; people aren't doing it as much any
This was Jeff's style and he didn't care what others were
Damon was conservatively
dressed in khaki shorts and a t-shirt with his fraternity logo.
Jeff looked much more himself in blue jean shorts and a tight tank
top which showed off the body finely honed during his four years in the
"Bereit?" Damon asked
after applying a small amount of lotion in his short cropped black hair.
"Huh?" Jeff walked up
behind and placed his arms around his younger lover.
He was slightly shorter and was just able to rest his chin on
Damon's shoulders and look at their reflection in the mirror.
Both were thinking the same thing: "I am so lucky."
repeated in English.
"Oh, uh yeah." Jeff
released Damon and grabbed his keys. Habitually
looking around the apartment to make sure everything was off before
following Damon out the door and down the stairway to the main entrance.
Damon instinctively walked towards his blue Jetta taking out his
keys then pressing one button to disengage the alarm then the silver
button on the side causing the switchblade key to pop out.
"Let's take the
Jeep," Jeff said diverting towards his own vehicle.
"Weather's great we can take down the top."
Damon smiled and agreed with his partner.
It took only minutes to unzip and remove the canvas and plastic
panels that made up the exterior of the Wrangler.
They decided to store them in the Jetta for the time being so as to
not have to take them all back upstairs to the apartment.
Jeff put on his imitation Ray-Bans and flashed his award winning
smile at Damon. As they began
driving Damon just gave Jeff a questioning look after Jeff inserted a
Shania Twain CD.
Michelle worked hard to
get to where she was after her husband walked out the door and out of her
life. When he found out
after ten years of marriage and two children he was married to a lesbian
it was slightly more then he could handle.
When her family found out the reason they were less then pleased.
Michelle had already been working for several years at a local
plastics factory and put money into savings her husband wasn't aware of.
She was able to use this along with a grant for single mothers for
a down payment on their own house and move out of the trailer they had
been living in. It was a
modest single story bungalow in a blue collar section of town built in the
post World War II building boom. Damon
knew the small drive in the rear of the house off the alley would be full
with Michelle's SUV and Cindy's sports car so he directed Jeff to park
along the street in front of the house.
Jeff was a bit apprehensive but Damon assured him the neighborhood
"He's not really our
uncle," the voice came from thirteen year old Kevin who was sitting on
the sofa with a Playstation controller in hand.
"Just a friend of our mother's."
Of his three companions only Ashley looked up to see who had walked
in. Her eyes opening wide
seeing the two older hunks. His
two best friends, Curt and Jordan never took their eyes off the screen.
"Hey Kiddo," Damon
said as he tussled Kevin's hair. Kevin
turned his head and gave him a half smile.
Jeff asked walking over to join them.
"Hey, I was thinking about that one!" When he saw the graphics
on the screen and recognized the game.
"It's awesome," Curt
said momentarily looking up at Jeff.
"This is Jeff," Kevin
said still keeping his eyes on the screen, "He's Damon's
boyfriend." Both Curt and
Jordan looked wide-eyed at Jeff as if he was some sort of freak.
"He's gay but he's cool."
scolded. She made a mental
note to have a talk with her son at a later time about Gay Golden Rule
Number One: "Thou shalt not pull someone out of the closet."
Even though most of Kevin's friends already assumed that most
adults who came to the house were gay it was not his responsibility to
tell anyone or say anything about it.
She was becoming concerned about his attitude as of late.
He had been raised around gays most of his life and Cindy had lived
with them for the last three years so it was not like this was something
new to him. She attributed it
to peer pressure and his friends possibly making fun of him because of his
unconventional `parents.' She
was not sure how to deal with it, or if maybe it was a phase he would
outgrow. She never expected
either of her offspring to turn out gay just because she was, and in fact
hoped they wouldn't. She was
hoping that his exposure would make him a better person, one who would not
succumb to the jokes many teenagers were bound to spread about gays.
Maybe what he needed was a positive male influence in his life;
heaven knows his low life white trash father didn't fit that bill.
If he was around, at least her children would be influenced by a
male other then Josh.
Damon shook his head and
smiled then followed Michelle through the kitchen to the back door and out
to the patio. He knew Jeff was
a big kid at heart, especially where video games were concerned and that
he's probably lost his boyfriend to the teenagers for a while.
The girls were proud of
their back yard project. When
Michelle bought the house there was virtually nothing out the back door
but weeds and a dilapidated garage.
She made some headway by herself, but when Cindy moved in the two
of them began the reformation. They
had poured their own patio and built an arbor to give it partial shade.
Wisteria vines that grew up one side then on the top added a touch
of coziness in addition to providing some privacy from the neighbors.
Part of the patio was covered with a corrugated fiberglass roof to
cover a bar area tucked into the back corner.
The yard had been completely tilled and new top soil added then the
whole yard covered in sod. They
replaced the chain link fence to hold in the dog the kids wanted and
rebuilt the one car garage that was now mainly used for storage.
They had already made plans to add a hot tub with next year's tax
refund. Trish, Gina and Brian
were seated around a patio table nursing Margaritas while Cindy was
flipping burgers on the large stainless steel grill.
Jimmy Buffet's "Brown Eyes Girl" could be heard from speakers
mounted on the wall near the back door and connected into a CD player in
You didn't come home last night; the guys were talking this
morning." Brian commented to
"So you went back to the
house?" Damon seemed
surprised. He gave his
roommate a questioning look as he scratched
"Where would you have
expected me to go?"
"Well, your sister is in
town, I figured you would spend some time with her."
"I did, yesterday
afternoon and most of the evening. And
in case you hadn't noticed they're sitting right there."
"You didn't spend the
night with them?" Damon
"My friend, I know most
heterosexual men would go into hormone overload at the chance of sharing a
room with a couple lesbians. But
when it's my sister, I opted not to participate."
"So you're saying that
if it was a couple lesbians you didn't know it would be different?"
Brian immediately turned a
bright shade of crimson when he considered the implications.
"Well, uh..." was all he could say as he tried to pull his foot
from his mouth.
"It's boring; I
watched `em before." Josh walked out the back door just then in his
normal jovial self followed by Nick, whom he had met the night before.
Josh didn't stop as he headed straight to the bar and made
himself and Nick a drink.
"You didn't seem bored
at the time." Cindy played along with Josh.
"Intrigued is more like
it, and more than a little disgusted. I could never be a carpet muncher."
"At least it's nice
and clean, talk about disgusting places to stick things I don't know how
you guys can do it." Michelle
"Who are you to talk;
you've got two kids sister." Josh had walked over to the grill and
picked up a finished hot dog from a plate on the side tray which he
seductively licked before sliding it into his mouth simulating oral sex.
"What's so funny?"
Josh quickly changed his posture hearing
"Nothing Sweetie, go
tell your brother and his friends to come get a plate."
Moments later the
thunderous herd of teenagers came through the door followed by Jeff who
made his greetings to rest of the adults.
Michelle had dumped the
buns from the grocery store into a large bowl.
Josh noticed Curtis digging through before making a unique choice.
"You know two bottoms
never work out." Josh couldn't resist saying.
"Huh?" The comment was
lost on the teenager, but he understood the meaning when Josh pointed to
the buns. "I like it like
that," Curtis said as he used the tongs to put a burger on the bun.
"If they're too thick I can't get them in my mouth."
"JOSH NO!" Michelle
had a good idea what her friend was about to say next and was quite
certain that was something she didn't want her son's best friend to
After the kids filled
their plates they sat in a group in the grass just off the patio.
The topic of conversation
turned to the marriage between Josh and Cindy.
"I think that is just
too cool!" Brian said shaking his head.
"It's almost like a big `fuck you' to the establishment."
"Think about it, the
main reason the religious bigots use in their argument against gay
marriage is that it violates what they call the sanctity of marriage."
"That's their biggest
argument," Nick agreed between munches to nods of concurrence from the
rest of the group.
"It's almost as if
you're saying if you can't join em, beat em."
Brian continued. "You
two can't get married," pointing at Michelle and Cindy, "but you two
legally can," pointing at Nick and Michelle who was close by.
"There's no love per se, no sanctity, nothing but convenience.
You now get all the same benefits any straight as an arrow married couple
would get. But in reality,
forgive me for saying this, it's all bogus."
"Not really," Josh
said, "we got what we wanted."
"Which was?" Nick
"To live in a married
apartment instead of a dorm." Was Josh's reply.
"Anything else?" Brian
"Not really," several
people said in one form or another after a few moments of thought.
"Get my point, if lessay
Jeff and Damon went to the office and said they were a committed couple
and wanted a married apartment what do you think would happen?"
"Probably get the door
slammed in our face." Jeff
And that's only the tip of the iceberg." Brian concluded while
the others were in thought.
"But my question is,"
Nick wondered looking first at Josh. "I
understand out of the deal you got to live in the apartment you wanted."
answered slowly wondering where his mate for the evening was going.
"And since she has a
full time job, you can be covered by her health insurance, and be
beneficiary to her life insurance and retirement."
Others then had a feeling what was next as he looked to Cindy.
"The question is, what do you get out of it?"
Cindy's eyes opened wide
as she looked back and forth between Michelle, the love of her life and
Josh, her legal husband. Try
as she might she could not think of a benefit she got out of the
arrangement. In the beginning
when both her and Josh were students they did share the apartment.
But once she and Michelle became more serious and she dropped out
of school and took a full time job she moved out.
Josh was still able to live there because he was still married and
both their names were on the lease. They
were all friends and the girls were there on a regular basis and Josh was
a regular baby-sitter to the kids.
"I see what you mean,"
Michelle said. "Her parents
disowned her and they haven't spoken since she came out.
So if she were to have a medical emergency even now I would have no
say so, but Josh by a technicality could literally decide whether or not
to pull the plug."
"You're not helping
sweetie," Josh said to Nick.
"There are so many
things that straight people take for granted we get denied, and probably
always will." Nick said seriously. "Just
a suggestion, especially to you two."
He looked right at Michelle and Cindy.
"Since you have the kids you may want to make sure they're
"What do you mean?"
Michelle was always concerned when her children were involved.
"Make sure you have a
will so if anything happened to you Cindy would be guardian.
This is a time when her marriage to Josh would be an advantage.
The courts would be less likely to contest it since they're a
married couple. And you should
also have her designated as a guardian.
Let's say she," pointing to
"That is something to
think about hon." Cindy said.
"Maybe you," looking
at Damon, "and you two as well,' looking to Trish and Gina, "should
think about power of attorney and wills." Nick said.
"What are you, a
lawyer?" Until this time
Trish and Gina had been quiet but Trish finally spoke.
Even though her family was fine with her and Gina's relationship
Gina hadn't been so lucky.
"Maybe," Nick replied
before taking a sip from his beer.
"Then we'd like to
know more about this," Trish said. Nods
around the group showed others were in agreement.
Nick then spent the better part of an hour explaining paperwork
that could be filed to protect same sex, or any unmarried couple.
Giving all of the couples present, and even Brian something to
think about, he being a pre-law major and had never even considered all
that was suggested seriously before and began making mental notes.
At one point when Brian
was questioning Nick about his job and what brought him to town, Josh took
the opportunity to sneak away and help Damon take dirty dishes to the
"Deej, your horse
analogy last night couldn't be more correct, talk about an Italian
"His last name is Polito,
he's one of eight children and he was raised in
"So that's why
you're walking funny?"
"I could get real used
to this one," Josh put his hands on his hips and watched as Damon rinsed
off the dishes. "Too bad he
leaves tomorrow morning."
The great Josh Fletcher is going for a second date?"
He then looked through the small window above the sink.
"The sky is still blue! Are
the planets out of alignment or something?"
Besides I lost you to army boy."
Damon turned the handle on
the faucet stopping the flow of water then grabbed a towel from a ring on
the front of the cabinet to wipe his hands.
"That's Marine, don't let him hear you say Army.
And you never had me to lose dear friend.
Go for it, he's cute and sounds like a good catch."
He placed a quick kiss on his friend's cheek as he passed him
heading towards the back door. "Besides, sounds like he may make enough
money to support even you."
"Not going to happen,
long distance relationships never work." Josh paused to decide whether
or not to continue. When he started he spoke in a much more serious tone
tha n normal. "Speaking of working Damon, have you told him yet?"
One quick look at his
friend and Damon knew Josh was speaking in earnest.
He also knew exactly what his friend was talking about.
"Not really" was his response.
"That's not really an
"I know Josh, he knows
some, but not sure I'm ready yet."
"He's going to find
out sooner or later."
"I know, I know.
I just can't help but to think of the problems that it's caused
in the past. I really think
he's the one Josh. But I
want to make sure." The
subject was dropped as they exited to the back porch.
There is a light
conversation around the table as Trish and Gina got to know their new
friends. Even though Brian was
there with his sister and his roommate he couldn't help but to feel out
of place and slightly uncomfortable being the only heterosexual.
He alternated between talking to Jeff and Nick whom he was bonding
with around taking jabs about being the group's token straight boy.
As the afternoon began to
wind down Brian and his girls left first.
They needed to head back to
Damon had been alternating
his time between the adults and Tracy who became excited when he suggested
going to the Dairy Hut for treats. Michelle
and Cindy looked to each other as they declined, Damon noticed, and
understood it to mean they would probably enjoy some alone time and asked
Kevin along. Curt and Jordan
had left but Kevin asked if Ashley could come along, Jeff teased him about
having a girlfriend causing both the teens to blush. After a quick stop at
Dairy Hut they headed to
After some horseplay
between Jeff and Kevin, the youngster pointed to the wooded area.
"Hey Jeff, there's a creek in over there with snakes."
"Hey, Ashley wanna see
"Yech, I don't think
"Why don't you take
Jeff, and I'll stay here with the girls." Damon said to Kevin while
"You don't wanna see
snakes?" Jeff asked with a sly grin.
"Maybe later," Damon
discretely looked towards Jeff's crotch who returned a knowing smile.
"Come on Jeff," Kevin
took off running and was already halfway there.
Jeff followed along a trail cut into the underbrush that went
several hundred feet into the woods to a wooden footbridge crossing a
narrow creek with a steady flow streaming underneath.
After they had been there
several minutes and not spotted a snake Kevin moved closer and looked to
the older man. "Jeff, can I ask you a question." He stopped and
hesitated before continuing, this got Jeff's attention. "About sex,
Jeff looked away not
wanting to face the teenager and not sure how to proceed, nervous as to
the consequences. "I'm not sure," he finally responded as the
adolescent walked to the end of the bridge and around to the creek.
"I want to have sex."
Kevin said matter of factly.
"Kevin, you're just a
kid. I mean you and me, it's
not gonna happen."
"I didn't mean with
you, I mean with Ashley." Kevin grumbled.
Jeff gave an obvious sigh
or relief. "Uh, am I the right person you want to talk to, I am gay you
know." Jeff felt
uncomfortable and hoped Kevin would drop the subject.
But on the other hand he recalled a similar conversation he had a
couple years back with another youngster and couldn't help by to smile
"Yeah, but I'm sure
you still know how it's done."
"Do you?" Jeff figured
he may as well listen to the kid. It
wasn't too many years before that he was fourteen and he definitely knew
the facts of life by then.
"I know where to put it
if that's what you mean." Kevin gave a sly grin.
"I guess you know about
rubbers then too, huh?"
"Do I need one?
I mean I'm only fourteen, my friends said she wouldn't get
pregnant the first time."
"Don't listen to your
friends, I'm sure you're shooting live ammo by now which means you
could be a daddy."
"No shit?" Kevin's
eyes were as large as saucers at the news. He thought for a moment before
continuing. "Yeah, there's
a vending machine in the bathroom at the gas station down on the corner.
I can get rubbers there."
"Of course, I haven't
always been gay you know, I used to date girls."
"Really?" Kevin was
astonished, "what made you change."
"Let's not talk about
that, what about you and your question." Jeff would rather not be
talking about is past sex life with a fourteen year old whom he barely
"My friends are pushing
me to, you know do it."
"Do you want to?"
"Well yeah, I mean who
Jeff walked to the shore
with Kevin and followed him down stream, picking up rocks and throwing
them into the creek as they went. "Not
everybody Kevin, another important question, does she want to?"
"I dunno, she flirts
with me all the time but hasn't come out and said it."
Jeff smiled to himself.
That was one of the things he didn't miss from dating women, the
mind games and never knowing how to read them. "That is the million
dollar question my friend. No
matter what you're feeling, or what your friends try to push you into.
Never, I mean never ever push her into having sex if she doesn't
want to. Trust me; it'll
only make things worse."
"How do I know if
she's ready, ask her?"
"That's one way, but
if she's not ready it could make her mad."
"But how do I know how
to read her and what she really wants?"
"You know I'm not the
utmost authority anymore on the subject of women these days, have you
talked to your mother about this?" Jeff meant it seriously and said it
with all sincerity. Kevin just
looked at him and rolled his eyes. "Sorry.
What about your father?"
"Not an easy guy to talk
"Can't talk to him
when you don't know where he is."
"Sorry about that,
didn't mean to pry." Jeff
felt embarrassed. They had never discussed the kid's father so he had no
idea what the story was.
"No that's Okay."
They stopped while Kevin picked up a stick and threw it at large
snapping turtle on the other side of the creek.
"My dad left not too long after
"Did you miss him?"
"No, not really.
They argued and yelled a lot. Even
in my room with the radio on and a pillow over my head I could hear
It was lame but the only thing Jeff could think to say.
In his small town couples have always tended to stay together.
"That's OK." There
was another couple minutes of silence as they walked along the creek.
At a couple points they had to step out onto some large rocks to
avoid poison ivy or other growth. Kevin
kept his large stick and would occasionally use it to separate the flora
enough to look in hoping to find a snake.
"At first he would come get me every other weekend," he finally
continued, "and would be at all my ball games, even if it was during the
week or not on his weekend to have me.
But that only lasted about a year until he found a new girlfriend,
and then she got pregnant. After
that it was maybe once every two or three months, and then it just
stopped. I heard Mom say that
a few months after that he quit sending support checks."
"Did she ever try to go
after him for that?"
"Nah, I don't think so
at least. If she did I never
paid attention or heard anything about it."
"I really don't know
what that would be like. Me
and my dad were always close. I
mean he yelled at me when I did things wrong but he was always there for
me." Jeff reminisced then
smiled thinking about it. "I guess I deserved it when he yelled at me.
I know he's always been proud of me and loved me."
Jeff let his mind momentarily wander thinking about his father.
When they were together he was never there, always out drinking or
whatever. I think he just came
to my games to put on a show. I
didn't care if he was there or not.
I mean it was nice to have him there since the other guys' dads
were there. But he was
sometimes drunk, on his cell phone, or had a woman with him and put on a
show if Mom was in eye sight."
Jeff doesn't believe
what he is hearing. He can't
imagine a father treating his son that way and almost feels guilty.
His dad was always there for him, taking off early at work when his
high school football team made the playoffs so he could drive to
You know it's my mother
who was always there for me. She
was my little league coach and my scout leader.
She was actually more of a father to me then my dad ever was. I get
her a father's day card every year as a joke."
They both laugh. "And
if I knew where my dad was I would send him a mother's day car because
he's a real mother fucker."
"It's about time!"
"Shut up Trace, we were
"Anything else Kevin?
I mean that you wanted to talk to me about?" Jeff figured he'd
better find out before they rejoined the other group and Kevin wouldn't
be as comfortable.
"I dunno, I guess I need
to think about it."
"Before we leave I'll
give you my phone number and you can call anytime.
Even if it's just to brag you finally beat my high score."
