As you can see, I've added in a 'Previously' section now. It will just summarize what happened in the last installment so that if I'm late updating the story, and you've forgotten what's going on, you can just read this section to refresh your memory a bit before going on with the new chapters. I hope you all enjoy this new addition to the story.
Also, I realize that I made this story suggestion in Chapter 5 of Affairs of the Heart, but I think that this story is really worth reading, so I highly recommend that you take the time to read, 'Black and Blue.' The story is very interesting in my opinion, and I would suggest to all of my readers that they should definitely read it for themselves. Anyway, now on with the story! :)


The Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Britney, Christina, and Aaron arrive at Van Tassel Manor, an old mansion in Canada, to spend the Halloween weekend. They meet the home's strange elderly housekeeper, Katherine Van Helsing, who informs them that she and her family never stay after dark, and that the house has no electricity or hot running water.

Strange and scary things begin to happen; Cold spots, ghosts, bleeding walls, terrible thunderstorms that according to the weather service are not happening, and wolves howling all night long. Soon, Chris Kirkpatrick is the first person to meet the owner of Van Tassel Manor, as Count Damien Van Tassel, a 150-year-old vampire, bites Chris.

The following night, the rest of the performers, except for Nick Carter, meet Count Damien Van Tassel in the library of Van Tassel Manor. Later, Count Damien goes back up to Chris' bedroom, where the two of them have sex together, and Count Damien bites Chris for the second time.

The following day, Kevin presents a very interesting theory about Count Damien to the others. He says that Count Damien is a vampire. The performers go upstairs, and break into Count Damien's bedroom, to find the corpse of Count Damien's long dead boyfriend, Count Thachery Wampir, laying in the bed, along with a hand-written note to Thachery from Damien which proves that Count Damien is a vampire, by his own admittance. They also find out that the late Count Thachery at one time looked exactly like Nick Carter, the one guest that Count Damien has not met.

The next day, about half-an-hour before dawn, Count Damien enters the library, planning on biting Chris for the third time. He doesn't get the chance however when Count Thachery Wampir shows up. Actually it's just Nick Carter, wearing some nineteenth century clothing. Anyway, Nick starts talking to Damien as if he were Thachery for awhile, until just minutes before dawn, when Nick reveals his deception to Damien, who is obviously very angry. The other performers trap Count Damien in the library by surrounding him, all holding up silver crucifixes, as Nick opens the library curtains and lets the sunlight stream into the room, as Count Damien is reduced to a pile of ashes.

Shortly after, Chris screams as he wakes up from this horrible nightmare, and when Lance comes in to comfort him, Chris kisses Lance passionately on the lips.

Chapter 75

Note: Just to avoid any confusion, the supernatural events of Chapters 71-74 were a dream. Van Tassel Manor, and the staff that works there however was not a dream. So, I do hope that nobody gets confused on this issue when they see Van Tassel Manor still being mentioned. On with the story now! :)

Chris continues to kiss Lance on the lips, with a passion that even he cannot explain. Chris has been having these feelings, that he's attracted to other men, for awhile now. He just has been unwilling to accept the fact and kept pushing it out of his mind. Somehow this nightmare about Count Damien has released these feelings full force, and Chris just can't hold them back anymore. Chris cannot deny his attraction to Lance, as it has been one of the more apparant attractions that he's felt.

After a moment, Lance manages to pull away from the kiss, and looks at Chris for a moment, before replying, "Where did that come from?"

"I don't know. I've been having these feelings for awhile now, I've just been unwilling to accept them. You are one of the more apparant attractions that I've felt, I hope that doesn't disgust you."

"No, it doesn't disgust me, Chris. Nothing that passionate or full of love could disgust me."

"So, is there a chance for us?"

"Well, I have to admit that I always have found you attractive, Chris. Especially after you chopped off the braids. That was the best thing you ever did!"

"Thanks, I think."

"As for whether or not we have a future together, I can't honestly say that I can see us together for any length of time. Chris I consider you to be a really good friend, and I do love you. But I love you as if you were my brother. I'd certainly never date my brother, so, I don't mean to hurt you or anything here Chris, but I just can't see a future for us. I'm sorry."

"It's okay, Lance, I understand. Hey, at least I know you'll be supportive of the fact that I'm bi-sexual, yes despite finally accepting the fact that I find other guys attractive, I'm still attracted to girls. And I know that Justin and JC will be supportive. Only one I'm not entirely sure about is Joey."

"He'll accept you. I should think he would anyway, I mean he accepts Justin, JC, and me, so I really don't see any reason why he wouldn't accept you too, Chris."


Meanwhile, several hundred miles away on the Pacific coast, David Tom lies in his bed, beginning to feel very guilty about his recent actions. On his right, lies his boyfriend and the man to whom he gave his virginity, David Lago. He knows that his love for him runs deeper then he ever thought possible. When he's with David he feels such a strong sense of happiness and contentment that he never thought that it was possible for him to want anything else. The sex with David is fantastic, and they have always had a lot of fun together, both in and out of the bedroom. They both have similar interests, the same passion for acting, and they even have the same first name.

However, there's also Joshua Morrow. David Tom still is unsure how his very happy and loving relationship with David Lago turned into a threesome. But, the truth of the matter is, David Tom would be lying to himself if he said that he hasn't enjoyed it. It always had been a fantasy of David's to have two passionate men in bed with him at once, but he never dreamed in a million years that it would ever happen. Well, he was wrong. It was only about a week ago now that David Tom, David Lago, and Joshua Morrow went to bed with each other and had their first threesome. And every night since then they've done it again, and every night fell asleep wrapped tightly in an entanglement of arms and legs.

David Tom also knows that his feelings for Joshua are not one-sided. He knows that Joshua does indeed love him. And that Joshua also loves David Lago and vice versa. But that does not help at all to ease the growing feelings of guilt and uneasiness that have been plaguing David's mind. True this relationship has fulfilled a fantasy that he has had since he was sixteen years old, but its a very complicated situation. Mainly because David knows full well that there is another person's heart involved in this relationship. An innocent person who only stands to get hurt by it.

This is of course Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys. David knows that Joshua Morrow harbors great love and affection for Kevin, and David is sure that Kevin feels the same way, based on the way Joshua talks about him, and the fact that Kevin gave his virginity to Joshua. If Kevin is anything at all like David Tom, then the giving of your virginity is a sacred thing that should only be given to someone that you love and admire with all your heart and soul. David Tom looks back and forth between the sleeping forms of the two men that he loves. He slowly and gently runs his fingers through their hair, thinking to himself, "Oh god, what am I going to do? What am I going to do?"


"Kevin, I still can't believe that you would cheat on Joshua," replies Brian.

Brian and Kevin sit alone in the music room of Van Tassel Manor, on this there last day on the estate. Neither Brian nor Kevin could sleep, and they met up in the music room quite by accident. Brian however wasted no time to once again air his grievances about Kevin's cheating activities.

"Well, Bri, I don't know how it happened," replies Kevin, "It just did. But, what I have with Lance is nowhere near as deep as what I have with Joshua. I love Joshua. I don't love Lance, the relationship is really nothing more then really good sex."

"Kevin, sex can't be really good unless it's with somebody you actually love."

"Well, I suppose you're right. I don't know what to do Brian. I think Lance may have fallen in love with me and I don't return those feelings. I don't even know how I let this relationship with Lance start. I love Joshua, I really do. It's just..."

"It's just, what?"

"Well, Brian, I don't know. I guess I'm not very good at the long-distance thing okay? It's painful to not see the man you love every day. I'd call Josh but I can't. His cell phone seems to be turned off every time I call, and I've tried calling at several different times of the day, thinking well perhaps he's on the set right now, so that's why it's turned off. I'd call his apartment, but he never gave me the number. And of course he hasn't even called me once since he's been gone. Which almost makes me wonder, if maybe... if maybe..."

Kevin bursts into tears before he can finish saying what he was trying to say, and as he sobs, manages to say, "if maybe he's started dating someone else!"

Brian, despite still being rather disgusted with Kevin, cannot stand to see Kevin in pain, and he quickly pulls his cousin into a tight hug, as he gently rubs Kevin's back. "There, there, Kev, everything is going to be okay. Just calm down, okay?"

"Hey Brian are you in..." starts Nick as he pokes his head into the room, before he sees Kevin sobbing, "Oh my god, what's wrong?"

Nick races over to the sofa where Brian is comforting Kevin, and sits down behind Kevin on the sofa, wrapping one arm around Kevin as he rubs Kevin's back with the other. He looks at Brian over Kevin's shoulder, with a questioning look on his face.

"Do you want to tell him Kevin? Or should I?"

"No, it's okay Brian, I'll tell him," replies Kevin as his sobbing subsides a bit and he takes a few deep breaths to calm himself down a bit.

"Well, Nick, in a nutshell, I've tried calling Josh several times on his cell and it's always turned off. I'd call him at his apartment but I don't have the number. I've begun to think that maybe he's been dating someone else."

"Oh my god, Kevin! I'm so sorry!"

"Wait, Nick, there's more. I know its wrong, but I've also been seeing someone else. Lance and I have been having a sexual relationship now for several months, which started a couple of weeks after Josh left."

"You've been cheating on Josh?" asks Nick, totally shocked, "What is wrong with you?"

"I don't know! Don't you think I've asked myself that question a million times over? Josh is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I love him dearly. I guess I just found the long distance relationship scenario too hard to deal with. Trust me I did try to fight it, but as Lance continued his advances, I finally broke and we had sex.

"But to tell you the absolute truth, and I know that you will probably disagree with me here Nick, as did Brian, there's nothing between me and Lance, other then really good sex, as far as I'm concerned. I can honestly say that I don't love him as much as Josh. I mean I might love him, but those feelings aren't as strong as they should be to pursue a romantic relationship."

"You're right Kevin, I do disagree," replies Nick, "Without love, true and passionate love, sex cannot be good. I know that there are people who would disagree with that and say that sex can be good without love, but I guess I'm just old-fashioned in my thinking. As far as I'm concerned love is a prerequisite to sex."

"And Kevin, I really don't mean to hurt you, because you're my cousin and I do love you. But I honestly don't think that your feelings for Josh are as strong as they should be. If they were, you never would have given in to temptation and had sex with Lance. I know that it's probably different for you, but I know for a fact that if Nick and I were 2000 miles away from each other, I would remain faithful to him. As I've told you, I could never consciously have sex with anyone other then Nick."

"Brian, no offense meant, but you seem to be forgetting that you've slept with Justin Timberlake twice."

"No, Kevin, I'm not forgetting that. I said I could never consciously sleep with anyone other then Nick. The first time I slept with Justin I was drunk out of my mind, and the second time I had amnesia and the idea that Justin was the man I loved was fed to me when my mind was in chaos. I didn't know who the hell I was or anything about myself and then this person shows up and provides me with overwhelming amounts of evidence that would point toward the idea that Justin and I were together. You have to admit that all of that evidence that Jeffrey had was quite convincing."

"Yes, that's true, it certainly was convincing," replies Kevin, with a sigh, "If I didn't know that you loved Nick, I probably would have thought that you and Justin were together after looking at all of it."

"Anyway, it doesn't matter," replies Nick, "All of that is in the past. I've forgiven Brian for it, and JC has forgiven Justin. I'm moving on with my wife with Brian, and Justin and JC with theirs."

"Yes, you're right Nick," replies Kevin, with a weak smile, "I'm happy for both of you I really am. I just wish I could say that I was happy, but I'm not. It would seem that the one man that I have ever loved is cheating on me, and I'm cheating on him with a man I don't even love. God, what is wrong with me? Why am I so fucking messed up?"

Upon saying this, Kevin once again starts to sob, as fresh tears come pouring out of the corners of his eyes. Both Nick and Brian wrap their arms around Kevin, and rock him gently, trying their absolute best to console him. Despite everything, they both still love Kevin, and can't stand to see him in pain.


"Listen to me," replies the older man, "You must not go through with this plan of yours. I know that you want revenge but it will only bring disaster!"

"No it won't!" replies one of the younger men in the room, "I have had plastic surgery. My face is different in case you haven't noticed. There is no way in hell that any of them will recognize me, especially considering that the only time any of them really ever saw me was when I was in the courtroom."

"Please, J, listen to dad, he knows what he's talking about," replies the other young man, "If you go through with this plan, and you get caught, you will never see the light of day again. Not to mention the fact that dad and I will be implicated as well for aiding a convicted criminal."

"I'm not going to to get caught damn it!" yells the first young man, "Now get the fuck out of face, both of you! I know what I'm doing. They're going to pay for getting me thrown in jail. They're all going to be so fucking sorry they ever messed with me!"

To be continued...

Well, I was going to include chapters 76-80 with this installment, but I just can't seem to get my thoughts on how I'd like to continue on from this point at the moment. So I figured that since it's been over a month now since the last updated, I'd at least post this, leaving you with that nice little cliffhanger! Enjoy! And I hope to have at least Chapter 76 out soon.
