Hey everyone... I hope you're all enjoying this story as much I've enjoyed writing it.
As I've stated before, this is my first real attempt at any sort of fan fiction. I began writing this back in April of 2000, which explains Justin's dark curls, etc.
This isn't a "jump right in the sack" type story, it'll build to that over time, so be patient. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
Please send me feedback!

Now, without further adieu...

they? Now, out... I have to get up early tomorrow. I have a long day."
with Ricky in the morning, and then I'm going to spend the day with him at work."
nodded. "Alright, I guess we'll see you tomorrow evening when Ricky takes
us out then."
Justin replied, "See you then." JC made his way out of Justin's room.
As he started to close the door, Justin spoke again. "Thanks, Josh."
JC just smiled and nodded, closing the door.
And now, the continuation:
arrived at Ricky's house the next morning at seven sharp. He walked up to the
door, placing his hand on the panel like he'd seen Ricky do and he heard the
door locks click and the voice respond, "Security system disarmed. Welcome
home, Justin." Smiling, he opened the door, walking in. Setting his workout
bag down on the couch, he looked around, noting that Ricky was nowhere to be
found, so he decided to check upstairs.
he reached the top of the stairs, Justin could hear whistling come from a room
down the hallway. Slowly, he approached the door, finding that it was cracked
open some. Out of curiosity, he peered through the crack, his eyebrows rising
up at what he saw.
danced around his room with only a towel wrapped about his waist as he whistled
a very familiar tune. It took a minute, but Justin finally recognized it as
"This I Promise You." He chuckled quietly, watching Ricky dance as
he dressed. Justin's mouth dropped, however, when Ricky's towel fell to the
floor. The only word that came to his mind was "wow."
realized that Ricky would be done dressing soon, and figured that it was probably
better to appear as though he'd been waiting downstairs for him. Without another
thought, he quickly made his way downstairs and took a seat on the couch.
several moments, Ricky descended the staircase, smiling as he spotted Justin,
who stood and greeted him with a soft kiss at the bottom of the stairs. "Mmm...
Good morning to you, too," Ricky said, doing a few pre run stretches before
he grabbed Justin's hand and dragged him out the door.

little over an hour later, Justin barged into the house, drenched in sweat.
"HA! I beat you! Told you I wasn't slow!"
jogged in after him, laughing. "Okay... so your not completely slow. Just
for the first mile and a half."
I wasn't slow at all!"
just rolled his eyes. "Please... I kept having to slow down so you could
catch up. Tripping and falling face first into a pile of seaweed didn't help
your time either." He grinned and winked at Justin who just stuck his tongue
out at him. Laughing, Ricky headed up the stairs. "You can use the bathroom
up here at the end of the hall to shower before we leave. Try and make it quick,
though. I'm supposed to be at the cafe at nine. I may be the boss, but I still
like to set a good example for my employees." Justin nodded and followed
Ricky up the stairs, pausing to watch him disappear into his bedroom, and then
going down the hall to the bathroom to shower.

much later, Ricky and Justin were speeding through town. Ricky squeezed Justin's
hand and looked up at him, which caused him to laugh quietly. "What?"
Justin asked curiously.
Ricky said, chuckling as he pointed to the bucket hat and sunglasses that Justin
smirked at him. "This is my disguise, man..." Ricky just continued
to chuckle at him. "What?" Justin asked again.
Ricky said, grinning. "You just look like Justin Timberlake with a hat
and shades... wouldn't fool me."
be surprised at how many teenage girls don't recognize us when we wear our 'disguises.'"
Ricky asked, laughing.
squeezed Justin's hand again and smiled at him as they pulled into the rear
parking lot of the Pacific Surf Internet Cafe. Leaning over, he kissed Justin
softly. "C'mon, Incognito Man. I'm only going to work a couple of
hours today, so I'm going to get as much done as I can. The rest of the day
is for you and the guys."
smiled at him as they got out of the car and walked around the front and in
the entrance. The cafe had only opened an hour earlier, so there wasn't a whole
lot of business yet. Just a few patrons near the front, sipping sodas and lattes
as they surfed the net. None of them seemed to be of the 'N Sync generation,
so there was no need to worry about Justin being mobbed. Ricky led him over
to the counter, where a woman in her early twenties stood.
boss," she said, looking up from the counter where she'd been reading a
magazine, smiling at him.
Ricky replied, smiling back. Turning to Justin, he started to introduce them.
"Justin, this is Courtney, one of my closest friends and the manager of
this cafe. Court, this is...."
Courtney interrupted rather loudly.
cringed and Ricky quickly interrupted her, speaking in quiet tones to give her
the hint to keep it down. "Obviously, I don't need to tell you who he is,
but I do need to tell you that you need to keep his presence here in town a
secret. He's on a much needed vacation, and would like to stay as low-key as
glanced back and forth between Ricky and Justin for a moment, then she looked
at Ricky. "How.... how do you know him? Do you know who he is?"
chuckled eying Justin for a minute. "He and I are good friends. He's gonna
spend a couple hours here with me, and then we're gonna hit the town."
he looked at Courtney for a second and then continued, "Court... I can't
stress enough how important it is to keep this quiet."
say another word, boss. The secret's safe with me," she assured him, smiling.
and Ricky smiled at each other, and then Justin grabbed the magazine she'd been
reading, flipping it closed to get a glance at the cover. Ironically, it was
a copy of Teen People, and his picture was on the cover. Without hesitation,
he pulled a pen out of his pocket, and autographed the magazine, sliding it
back to her. Courtney's eyes lit up as she saw the signature. "Thank you,"
she said grinning from ear-to-ear.
problem," Justin replied, turning back to Ricky, who just smiled.
I've got some work to do, so Justin and I are going back to my office, Court,"
he said, "If you need me, that's where I'll be." Courtney was still
smiling widely as she nodded, watching Justin as he and Ricky disappeared into
the back of the cafe.
the door to Ricky's office shut behind them, Justin grinned at him. "Just
your good friend, eh?"
very good friend," Ricky said, grinning back at him. "Besides, what
was I supposed to say? 'Court, I think you already know my new boyfriend, Justin
Timberlake of 'N Sync.'"
taken," Justin said, stepping closer to Ricky, sliding his arms around
him, sighing. "I hate this, I really do... Having to hide like this. If
the public were to find out about this, it could mean the end of 'N Sync. I
couldn't do that to the guys."
nodded and softly kissed Justin's forehead as he held him close. "I know,
Jus.. I'd never ask you to do otherwise. I love you too much to do that."
blinked. "What'd you say?"
never ask you to do oth..."
I love you too much to do that?"
smiled at him. "You love me?"
course I do, Justin. In the short time that I've known you, I've fallen absolutely
head-over-heels for you."
smiled softened and he leaned forward, brushing his lips against Ricky's. "I
love you, too," he whispered, softly nibbling on Ricky's lower lip. Ricky
took the nibble as encouragement and kissed Justin deeply for a moment, then
smiled at him as he gently broke away.
need to get my work done," Ricky finally spoke up, reluctantly. "It
should only take me about an hour." Justin nodded, and released him. Ricky
walked over, sitting behind his desk, motioning to the computer on the other
side of the room. "If you want to hop on the net, check e-mail or whatever,
headed over to the other computer as Ricky turned toward his own computer, getting
to work. After a bit, as he was paying bills, an instant message popped up on
his screen. He raised an eyebrow at the screen name - UNCBlueBounce81
- this was one he'd never seen before. He decided to take a second and see who
PacificSurfCafe: Hi... Do I know you?
UNCBlueBounce81: Maybe... *grin*
PacificSurfCafe: So it's like that, eh?
PacificSurfCafe: Listen, if you're some psycho stalker or something, you'd better watch out. My boyfriend will kick your ass. He's a big muscular guy.
UNCBlueBounce81: Oh... I'm so scared.
attention was taken from the screen as Justin suddenly burst out laughing. "What's
with you?" Ricky asked Justin.
just a funny e-mail."
shrugged at Justin and returned his attention to the computer. Slowly, he put
two and two together, realizing that he was chatting with Justin online. He
must've seen my screen name on my business card, he thought. A grin passed over
his lips as he decided to play it out.
PacificSurfCafe: Yep. Plus, I'm seeing this musician guy on the side. He's cute... not many brains though. He's like a lava lamp, really... Pretty to look at, but not very bright.
Justin said, turning to find Ricky grinning at him. "Cute, Ricky... Really
cute," he said, realizing he'd been caught.
just continued to grin at him. "I know I am," he said, watching Justin's
eyes roll. "But you're not so bad yourself." He tapped at the keyboard,
shutting his computer down, then making his way over to Justin. "I'm done
for the day. Let's go." Leaning over, he softly kissed Justin's cheek.
looked at him questioningly for a moment. "Ricky?"
isn't some big muscular guy, is there?" Justin asked, genuinely concerned
Ricky chuckled, pulling him up out of the chair and into his arms. "Justin, you can rest assured that there's nobody but you." Placing a gentle kiss on Justin's lips, he tipped his head toward the door. "C'mon... let's go." Justin smiled at him, hugging him tightly one more time before releasing him and wandering back into the public eye.
