Thanks again Doug
It took a while before they drifted off to sleep but soon
there was steady breathing. Brad slept better that night. He did not know if it
was just because someone else was there or not. The night passed quick and as
the roosters started to crow Brad felt the familiar warmth of his lover against
his back. Brad bolted up in the bed and turned to look at his lover. At first
he felt the relief that it had all been a dream. Then Wayne
sat up wanting to know what was going on.
Brad looked at Wayne the tears
welling up in his eyes. He was fighting to keep from crying. Brad explained to Wayne that he woke and felt him wrapped around him. How he
felt it was Scott and all of this had just been a bad dream.
Wayne put his hand on Brads
back and rubbed it lightly. He then told Brad he was sorry that he had to go
through this. Brad wiped his face then stood up. "I will start breakfast if you
will go milk the goat."
Wayne agreed and put on some
clothes then headed out to milk the goat. It had been a long time for Wayne but he got the hang of it again. He finished milking
and fed the other animals. When he went in to gather the eggs there was a hen
that was setting. She only had four eggs under her but Wayne
did not know if he had put them there or not.
Brad almost had breakfast done when Wayne
made it back. Wayne asked Brad about the hen and
was told he needed to put all the eggs aside for the hen to set on. He would
like to have a dozen for her to set.
The guys ate there breakfast having a good chat about what
they needed to get done for the day. Once done Brad almost yelled for Yeller to
come up for the scraps. It seemed every time he turned around something was
reminding him of how empty his life seemed now. Brad tried to be happy the
Scott was still alive it was hard because of the anger he had inside.
Brad had prayed more in the last few days than he ever had
in his life. He was not a real religious man but he did believe in god. All he
was praying for is that Scott's life has one more chance.
Wayne broke Brad's
concentration when he asked Brad for some help. Wayne
needed help cutting the hoses. He had the extra hardware to put new ends on
after they were cut. The barrel had a place for the hose to screw into when
they had it placed on the roof. The two barrels went up easy with just a couple
of adjustments having to be made. Once they were up some extra hose was placed
on the roof. It would heat up faster than the barrel.
There were two small holes cut up under the eave and the
hoses fed through. The water from rain would drip there instead of going in the
house. Once the hoses were through the wall they went inside to connect the
hoses for the house.
Wayne had a valve that could
be switched from one side to the other. This way the same tank that fed the sink
could feed the washing machine. The other tank could be for showers. Once
everything was done Brad started pumping the old well. When he had a little
water in the bucket Wayne kicked on the electric
pump it fed the barrel for the washer first.
Brad wanted to know how he would know when it was full. Wayne told him to listen for water running on the roof.
Brads arm was getting tired of pumping when he finally heard the water hitting
the roof. Wayne then switched the valve and it
started filling up the other barrel. Wayne came
over and started pumping the old well. He knew the water was cold and would
take a while to warm in the sun.
At least Brad could fill the barrel and wash a load of
clothes without having to watch the washer in between cycles. It dawned on Brad
then if he had some more hose he could water the garden with the wash water. It
would not be as bad a having to haul it out there all the time.
He was thinking about all kinds of things now. He asked Wayne if he could get a few more bid drums. He wanted to
put plumbing in. If he had some pipe for sewer and a couple of barrels he could
put a toilet in. In door plumbing, man would it be nice to be able to set on a
commode again. The out house had a board with a hole cut in it and you sure didn't
set there long.
It was a little after lunch time when they got through
hooking things up. Brad thanked Wayne for
everything he had done and asked him what he wanted for lunch. Wayne
went outside and looked around while Brad fixed lunch.
As Wayne walked around he was
amazed at how different the valley looked compared to the flat ground all
around. He wondered if it was formed by an earthquake or had a meteor had
formed it years ago. It had fresh water that ran into it but did not run out.
That told him there had to be a place where the water went under ground or the
valley would be a lake. There was also a part of the valley that did not have
many trees on it. It was covered with plush grasses at one time there must have
been a fire that burned out that area. Lightning might have started the fire
that caused that.
Wayne just could not get over
how it seemed like a different part of the world here. The trees were taller
and everything seemed greener. He wanted to explore this valley and see what other
mysteries it held. He was sure there would be a lot of things to see but his
stomach started to growl. This was a reminder to head back to the cabin.
Brad told Wayne he was just
fixing to go hunting for him. He told him about the cougars they had run into
and had to kill. We never go very far without a gun. Wayne
was surprised about that. Brad explained what had happened when they ran into
the cougars before.
After a while Brad asked Wayne
what he done for a living. He told Brad that he did odd jobs for a living.
There was not much to do around the area and he did not want to move. Certain
times of the year he had steady work. Some of the farmers would use him in the
spring time for planting and summer he hauled hay. The fall if weather was bad
he would help harvest when they got behind. If they did not he would cut fire
wood. He had a couple of yards he kept up and would do repairs for people. It
was always enough to get by on but not enough to take a wife and settle down.
The town was not growing because of lack of jobs. Most
people would not settle for part time jobs so they move. I have been lucky in
the fact I have not been sick or in the hospital. I know I can not do this
forever but I like having different jobs to do. I would not be able to do this
but my house is paid for so my expenses are very low.
Brad then asked If Wayne had a girlfriend or someone he was
seeing. Wayne explained he had an older woman he
seen on a regular basses. They would never be anymore than they are now. He had
a girlfriend for a few years and she wanted to get married. The problem with
her was she wanted to move away from here. It soon got to the point that they
could not get along so it ended. She soon married someone else and moved out of
the area. Her husband is now moved back and she stayed in the city.
Wayne went on to how he would
like to get married some day and have children. The main problem was that there
were not many girls around the area that he would even want to marry.
Brad told Wayne that he would
be a good catch for any girl. But that he did understand a girl wanting a man
to have a steady job. It would be hard to raise a family when you do not know
where your money will come from. Wayne agreed
with Brad and told him he hoped to find a steady job someday. There were a
couple of farmers that had hired hands that were getting on in age. He knew
that there would be an opening in a few years there.
Brad then asked Wayne what he
was doing now for a job. He told him that it would be hay season again soon and
he would work hey. There was still two or three weeks before that happened. As
long as I make at least five hundred a month I can survive.
Brad then asked Wayne if he
would like to work in Scott's place till he could come back to work. He hated
staying out here by himself. Wayne told Brad he
would have to talk it over with his mother and see if he could find someone to
take over the two lawns he had first.
Brad then explained to Wayne
the job paid Four hundred a week plus room and insurance. There would also be a
small bonus if he made it through the year. Wayne
liked the terms. The most he was ever paid was eight dollars an hour for any
job he had ever had. He could have every thing turned off at his house till he
came back and put that money all away.
Wayne told Brad he needed to
get cleaned up and head into town. He would check to see what he could find out
about Scott and talk to his mom about the job. He would come back tomorrow and
let him know what he decided either way.
Brad felt better about everything now. He pulled out the tub
and told Wayne he could take the first shower if
he wanted. Wayne told him he would just go to
the creek and clean up. The water in the barrel had not had enough time to warm
up. As he headed out the door he asked Brad if he would like to join him at the
Brad could smell himself so he said he would love to. They
headed to the creek to clean up. Brad thought along the way how nice that Wayne was. He never seemed to get upset or stand offish
about anything. Even the fact that Brad was gay did not seem to bother him. He
acted as if there was nothing wrong.
As they walked up to the edge of the bank a couple of frogs
jumped in. Wayne told Brad he should catch him
some frogs to eat sometime. Brad looked at him telling him "I don't think so."
As Wayne was setting down to take his boots off
he told Brad they were very good to eat. If you went to a restaurant to eat
them they were expensive.
Brad sat down beside Wayne to
take his boots off to. It felt strange that someone that looked so much like
Scott could be so different also. They were a lot alike in a lot of ways buy Wayne seemed to have a calmer disposition about him. Brad
could only thing it had to do with how they were raised. Scott was raised by an
explosive preacher and Wayne was raised by a
very calming lady.
Scott seemed to be a little more bulked up than Wayne but he had been busy working full time on a ranch.
Lifting bales of hay and sacks of feed everyday bulked him up more. Brad could
not help but to admire Wayne's body though. He
caught himself starring at him as he took off his clothes.
Wayne started to laugh when
he noticed Brad starring. This brought Brad back to attention he apologized for
starring. Wayne told him it was cool it just
felt different having a guy stare at him while he stripped. Brad then told him
he had a great body and it reminded him of Scott. Wayne
turned to Brad and hugged him telling him he knew he missed Scott to.
Wayne then told Brad again
how close he and Scott were when they were growing up. How when they were young
they were teased about being twins all the time. Heck they were so close that
when they noticed changes in there bodies they would compare them. That all
changed after mike died. It was not till after Scott came to live out here that
we were reunited. Things were different then, he was different. After a while Wayne started noticing things. Like Scott never dated or
talked about women. When asked he would tell you he did not date in collage
because he wanted to study and make good grades. Scott never explained why he
had quit just he needed a break.
Wayne tried to set him up on
dates but he never had the time. Then when he would come to lunch at the dinner
he would not even notice the pretty girls when they came. Wayne
asked his Mom about Scott one day. He explained that he never notice the cute
girls and would never go on a double date with him. May explain to Wayne the reason she thought Scott did not date was
because he was gay. May went on to tell him that Mike was gay also but that it
did not change who he was. It just changed how he acted around others. It would
make him a more guarded person with his feelings because of the way people
looked at gay men.
Wayne then told Brad to just
be his self around him. Brad looked down and said I guess I am. Wayne looked to where Brad was looking and saw Brad's cock
was swelled. He was not hard but almost. Brad told Wayne
he was sorry about that but the flesh was weak.
Wayne hugged Brad again and
told him it was ok. He knew he looked enough like Scott and felt like Scott
that he understood. Brad felt his cock touch Wayne's
as he was hugged again. His was rock hard now but as Wayne
turned to leave Brad saw there was no change in Wayne,
his cock was as soft as ever.
Wayne walked out into the
water and started to swim. Brad followed soon just to hide the fact his cock
was hard. The more Brad was around Wayne the
more he enjoyed it. Wayne was a very relaxing
person to be around. He did not have any hang-ups about Brad being gay. Brad
was shocked he did not get upset when he felt his hard cock pressing against
Wayne swam to the edge to the
rock they put everything and grabbed the soap. He soaped everything he could
then asked Brad if he would soap his back. Brad almost jumped at the chance to
do this and soon had Wayne soaped up. When Wayne was rinsed off he asked Brad to hand him the soap.
He then turned Brad around and soaped his back for him.
When Wayne was done he walked
back to the edge of the water and got out to set on the rock. He lay back a few
minutes to let the sun help dry him while Brad finished washing. Once Brad was
done Wayne asked if he would like to set down
and dry a second. As Brad sat down Wayne started
asking questions about the job and what he would need to bring out. Brad
answered all of Wayne's questions and then told
him if he wanted to sleep in his own bed he would need to bring one. After they
dried off they headed back to the cabin and Wayne
took off to talk to his mom.
Brad felt better that night he had found someone that he
could live with. Wayne reminder Brad of Scott so
much. In some ways he liked Wayne's personality
better and in some Scotts. Wayne seemed so laid
back and that nothing fazed him at all. This was the one thing he liked most about
That night Brad rested better but he still could not wait
till Wayne came back with the news of Scott.
It was late when Brad woke the next morning. He got up and
ate a bite then started working on taking care of the animals. He sat some eggs
under the hen and gathered the eggs he found. When he milked the goat he found
she was not giving as much milk. She was trying to dry up. Brad knew if they
were to have milk he needed to make sure the goats were milked more often or
they would dry up.
Brad then started working the garden. There were more weeds
in it today because of the lack of attention. He kept hoping that Wayne would show up any second. Brad had finished weeding
the garden and picked some of it when he took a break.
Brad sat on the porch for a while and all he could think
about was how was Scott doing. It was driving him crazy that he was not up
there with him. Brad wanted to be with his lover. He wanted to go shake some
sense into Scott's mom. Brad knew even if he was there he would not be allowed
to see Scott. That fact did not make anything easier though.
Brad had finally cooled off and went back to work. When he
finished in the garden he started working on putting the food away. There was more
than he could eat by himself so he thought he would try to get more seed to put
away. Brad started getting hungry and fixed something to eat. He fixed extra
incase Wayne showed up. Brad was getting nervous
that it was taking Wayne so long to get there.
He could not help but think that something had gone wrong.
After Brad got through cleaning up the dishes he went back
out side to see if he could see Wayne coming in.
There were no signs of anyone coming down the road. Brad sat on the porch
looking in that direction. The longer he looked the sadder he felt. He wondered
if Wayne had never had the intention of ever
staying with him. Brad felt hurt and sad at the same time. Everything in his
life was going wrong.
He lost his Grandfather, Chris and Scott all in a short
time. Brad did not know how much more he could take. He was wishing it would
have been him that was shot. The longer he sat there the more he felt sorry for
himself. Brad was suffering from depression. It was getting late and Brad just
wanted to lie down and cry.
Brad stood up and went inside. When he got in he went over
to the bed to lie down and started crying. After a while Brad drifted off to
sleep. He was exhausted emotionally and fell to sleep soon after. Brad kept
hearing his name being called but could not seem to wake up. He felt like he
was in a fog. After a while he stopped hearing his name called and drifted back
off to sleep.
There was a pounding at the door that woke Brad next. He
jumped up and ran to the door yelling just a second. Once he opened the door he
saw two officers standing in the door way. Brad felt like he was going to be
sick. His first thoughts were that something had happened to Scott.
The officers verified who Brad was then told him they had a
couple of question for him. There were a couple of things they had forgotten to
ask when they were out the other night. Brad felt a little relief when he was
told this. He was afraid that something had happened to Scott. They told Brad
there would be a preliminary hearing soon to see about the charges filed
against Scott's Dad. Depending if Scott survives or not what charges will be
files. They told Brad Mr. Bruner was still in jail. His wife could not come up
with the money to bail him out yet.
Brad the reporters will be hounding you as soon as they find
out who you are. So far we have been able to keep your name out of it but not
for long. This could turn into a mess for you so be careful.
When the cops were through Brad fixed breakfast. He still
felt some discomfort at being alone. As he ate Brad was trying to think of ways
to keep the press away. He had not thought about it until the cops mentioned
it. Also, how long could he stand being alone?
Brad cleaned everything up after eating and headed out to feed. Once he
fed everything he took Scott's horse out for a short ride. You should not keep
a horse up all the time and not ride it. Brad rode down into the valley and
thought about how much he would love to live here with Scott.
There was very little that would have to be changed to make
this a Garden of Eden. There was a little rise that would make a perfect home
site. Brad was sitting there daydreaming of how their happy little world would
be. Time had passed and it was time to head home. Brad could not help but think
how happy he could be here. As Brad rode up the hill he felt the desperate
feeling invade him once again. He pulled up to unsaddle Scott's horse when he
saw Wayne come out of the chicken house. Brads
heart started beating fast as his first thought was always of Scott when he
first saw Wayne.
Wayne told him he tried to
call him last night on the CB but never got an answer. Brad was almost pissed
about Wayne telling him a lie till he remembered
he heard someone calling his name last night. He had completely forgotten about
the CB. Brad quickly changed the subject to see if there was any news about
Wayne told Brad that Scott
was operated on and the bullet was removed. He was doing ok but still in a
coma. The only way they found out is one of the nurses that works at the
hospital is a friend of Moms. She now is keeping Mom up to date on what is
going on. She found out there are no visitors allowed on his papers. Mom went
up to check on him and was not allowed in. She had Scott's Mom come out and
explain to her why she could not see him.
It seems Mom really pissed her brother off when she went to
see him at the jail the other day. It sounded like Mom told him he needed a big
dick stuck up his ass. To dislodge the corn cob blocking the crap covering his
eyes really pissed him off. It also pissed off Scott's Mom to because she
thought she was calling him Gay to.
Well Mom let her have it at the hospital. She told her she
was just a stupid cunt that could not make a decision
on her own. If she had a brain she would be working hard to help Scott rather
than cut him off from everyone. Then Mom was asked to leave but she told
Scott's mom that this was not the end of it.
Boy was Brad glad he was on the good side of Wayne's Mom. She sounded like if she got mad at someone
that she would let them have it with both barrels. Brad felt better that Scott
was doing ok but he needed to see him. Brad asked Wayne
when Scott was out on the floor if he would take him to see Scott. He knew that
as long as Scott was in ICU he would not get through. Wayne
agreed that he would take him as soon as he knew.
