Chapter 18


If you are under 18 or not of legal age in your country, please don't read on. If  you couldn't accept themes in the likes of homosexuality, please don't read on. This is a story concerning gay males having intimate relationships and is considered FOR ADULTS ONLY due to its sexual theme and contents. BUT if you really like this stuff, please don't tell others. 

Everything in this story is purely FICTIONAL. Or it's not true!!! Even if this story involved the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and a fictitious character, all that happens here is fictional... again, it's not true. I don't know anything about their sexuality, as far as the world knows, they're straight as an arrow so I dunno if they're gay (but I do have my speculations) or not but I wrote this out of freedom of speech and my love for these guys and slash fiction. I don't own or know the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC personally. I do know that Brian Littrell is married with Leighanne Wallace (rolls my eyes), Justin Timberlake is attached to Britney Spears, and JC Chasez has a girlfriend named Bobbee, so let's just assume that the aforementioned relationships doesn't exist. AGAIN, it's NOT TRUE!!! but don't we all hope that it's true... hehehehe...

My mobile phone was ringing incessantly. Who would call me in this ungodly hour? Brian and I were already sleeping for God knows how many hours already coz tomorrow is gonna be a big day. It's the continuation of our tour. I grabbed the phone from the counter and looked at the caller ID. It was Nick.

"What?!" I said on the phone in a very irritated voice.

"Um, where are you?" He asked me. Nick called me to ask that. What time is it? 1:45 am. Someone's gonna pay.

"I was sleeping with Brian already but I was just rudely interrupted by a phone call." I said to him. "What do you want?" I asked him with an irritated voice and I wasn't hiding it.

"You're with Brian?!" He shouted. I could hear someone in the background cursing something. Then I remembered that Kevin is the one who's gonna fetch him. Figures.

"Don't wanna believe me?" I asked him. I nudged at the sleeping Brian. "Bri, wake up. Nick wants to talk to you. And your cousin might talk to you as well. I'm going back to sleep." I said to him as I placed the phone by his ear.

"Nick, can we just talk about it tomorrow. Marty and I are very tired and want some sleep." Brian said sleepily in the phone. "Kevin, what now?" Brian said after some silence. "Tomorrow, please." Brian said and switched off the phone. Brian nestled closer to me and the two of dozed off. "Stubborn pricks." Brian mumbled as he drifted off.

The doorbell rang continuously. My eyes shot open. Brian was still with me sleeping. "Bri, someone's at the door." I said to him groggily. I looked at the watch and it read 8:00 am. It's too early. We're not needed by this time.

"Let them. I want sleep." Brian said childishly as he embraced me tighter. Instead of the irritating tone dying down, it rang more. "I guess I better get it." Brian said as he untangled himself from me. I sat up scratching my nose.

"Good morning sweetie." I said with a smile. Brian looked at me with sheer joy in his eyes. He approached me and kissed me on the lips. It was just an innocent kiss and I think I liked that more. There was no lust involved, just pure love.

"Good morning too. Well, I better get the door now before whoever is ringing gets a stroke." Brian sighed as he walked out of the room leaving me debating if I should sleep again or not.

"Why is that prick with you!" Kevin shouted as the door opened. Good thing I didn't open the door. I could hear a couple of 'yeah' following Kevin's words. I guess Alex and Howie are in as well. Even if I wanted to sleep more, I couldn't with the others here.

"Please no shouting at this time, we just woke up." Brian said to them to hush them. I know the feeling Brian. I dragged myself off the bed and into the bathroom. I took a piss and brushed my teeth. Once all the sleep has been washed away, I walked to the lounge room to meet the others.

I stood there defiantly not caring of what the other three think of me and sat beside Brian. "Any problems?" I asked them trying to stifle a yawn. I guess I'm still a little tired.

"Yeah, you." Howie said to me. This is boring me.

"Nick, did you explain everything?" I said while not looking at Nick. I don't think I can stand Nick at this moment. Everything's too fresh. But I caught the three looking at me. "I guess you didn't. I don't wanna explain everything now so I'll just let either Nick or Brian do the talking. It's too friggin' early. I'll just cook some breakfast for all of us." I said and walked away from the famous Backstreet Boys to talk this over.

I walked in the kitchen and opened the ref to see what can be cooked in here. Eggs, bacons... I guess there's enough. I started the tedious job of cooking for all of us.

The omelets were already done and I'm just cooking some pancakes when the five entered the kitchen. Four of them looked guiltily. I guess you can guess who the four are. "I'm sorry for blowing my top without hearing the story." Kevin started. AJ and Howie followed with their 'sorry' as well. But Nick was a different story.

"Um, Marty can we talk in private?" He asked softly. I looked at him hard... just to play with him. I love the reaction on his face. He looked so lost. I walked to the sofa and he followed.

"Talk." I said to him while I look at my nails trying to not be interested.

"I'm sorry for being such an insensitive dick back there. I forgot that I brought you there to give you some company but I left you there because of... something." Nick said hesitating in his last words.

"Okay." I said simply and stood up.

"That's it?" Nick asked me suspiciously.

"What do you expect? I'm not the yelling type of person and you admitted what your fault is. Just learn from it especially that you have two in your heart now." I said to him. I just can't help myself for the last words. The look in his face was something. It was like a mixture of embarrassment and shock. 

"You're not disgusted or something?" He asked me as I was near the door to the kitchen. I stopped walking and looked at him.

"Why should I? I'm a very liberal person. There's nothing I can do if I see that you're falling for two people and that y'all decided to give it a shot. I think it's cute and special." I said to him with a smile and a wink and walked away. When I entered the kitchen, they were already eating. There was a vacant seat beside Brian with a plate piled with food. "I miss this." I said to Brian as I sat beside him. "And this." I said when I kissed him at the lips.

"Here we go again." I heard AJ mumble. I just smiled and gave him the finger. Nick then entered the room in a better disposition. He was smiling now... the same ole Nick.

"You two made up?" Brian whispered to me. I just nodded while shoveling a spoonful of omelet in my mouth. "Do you think he's gonna tell us?" Brian asked. I just shrugged not knowing the answer for myself. And, it's not my concern. This is a different case and is much more sensitive.

Nick was looking at me curiously. I just shifted my eyes to Brian and back to Nick. His smile just faded. It prolly hit him that Brian knows. While the other 3 were engrossed with something that I wasn't paying attention with, Brian, Nick and I were just communicating with our eyes. 

When I looked at Brian, he mouthed that he knows and he raised his thumb up signifying that it's okay for him. Nick just blushed and smiled. "What's with you three?" AJ asked us.

"Ask Nick." Brian giggled. Nick was blushing more furiously if that's even possible. I can't help but giggle as well. It's just infectious. The other three were looking at me then at Nick.

"Um, well... I dunno how to tell this." Nick stuttered. "Well, I'm with Justin." Nick said then paused.

"We already know that Nicky." Howie said with a smile but he looked confused still.

"And with JC." Nick finally completed it. The others didn't speak. The looks in their faces were totally a Kodak moment. Howie's eyes were bulging out. AJ's mouth dropped. Kevin looked like he's gonna faint.

"Nick, JC and Justin?" Kevin said then held his temples. Headache? 

"That's good to hear." I said to him with a smile. I stood up and cleared the empty plates of the others. Brian helped me cleaning up the mess while the four just sat contemplating over the matter. Nick looked like that he's gonna tear up but it's his ballgame. 

"Guys, snap out of it. Just be happy with Frack." Brian said as he placed the plates in the dishwasher.

"It's just a shock. Well, you know that everything's okay with me." AJ said with a grin. Kevin and Howie just nodded hesitantly. I guess that's the best for now. 

"Okay, now that everything is fine now. I'm gonna tell you what you are gonna do for the day." Kevin said with extra cheerfulness in his voice. I groaned but I wasn't alone, the others were groaning as well. "Your one week break is over and we have loads of things to do now. But you guys won't be very busy for the next week, except Martin." Kevin looked at me with a grin. "Because he's gonna be the new music director, he's gonna have to learn everything again so double work." Kevin said to me thinking that he got me there.

"I don't think so. I've laid everything down already in my laptop. From the first song to the last, everything is done. I'm just gonna have to inform the band about it." I said with an equal grin. "I've changed a few so I'm the one who won't be busy but you guys are the ones who's gonna busting your butts." I told them smugly. They all groaned, including Kevin.

"I can't believe you." Brian said shaking his head but a smile plastered on his face. 

"At least, I'm not the one teaching you your choreography or that would be hell for you. Fatima is too easy on you." I said to them. "Oh, before I forget. For some of the songs, there would be a different vibe to your usual ones and you'll get to hear them later. There's no big change but I think your choreography would be quickened a bit and change a few there and there." I loved every bit of this. Power trip. I was receiving glares now. "I think we should be ready now." I said to them, then we all left Brian's house to rehearse.

"Can we take a break?" Nick said out of breath. Fatima and I were watching the five dance on the stage for 30 minutes already and they were doing it poorly. 

"Should we?" I asked Fatima. I was enjoying Fatima's company. She was so funny and such a slave driver to the guys. But I don't think their rehearsal for the day is that heavy. Fatima is being lenient to them seeing Fatima before.

"5 minutes only!" Fatima shouted and the five seemed to get some energy as they rushed off stage to get something to drink. I approached Brian with a grin on my face.

"I am so tired." Brian said tiredly. 

"You five are so out of shape. Be thankful that Fatima is being easy on you guys today." I said to him as I sat beside him. 

"Well, all should be okay but someone has to change a few things and speed up a few things." Brian said sarcastically.

"But you must admit that it sounded better, right?" I said to him. Brian looked at me and smiled. I guess he agrees. "You rest your body while I send a song to the NSYNC camp." I said to him as I stood up. Brian looked at me shocked.

"Why are you sending them a song and not to us?" Brian said as a pout started to form in his face.

"Well, go listen to it and if you like it then it's yours. I just don't see you singing it." I said to him as I set up my laptop and clicked on the mp3 that I made for it. 

Can't you feel the music
Makes me want to groove it
Feel the rhythm that's made
That's my type of music

Dirty pop?
Nah, our Pop!

Pump up the volume of the box
Fill the dancefloor with your bodies
Even if there is no more room
I wanna shake my tight bootie
Flow with the song that you hear
It just wanna makes you scream
That's how everything is done
When you hear my music

Gotta move it
As I spin around and groove
Gotta sing it
As I shout all the words of my song
Gotta make it
Coz music lies in everyone

Can't you feel the music
Makes me want to groove it
Feel the rhythm that's made
That's my type of music

Music, music, music...

Oh! Come on everyone
Join us all in the fun
Makes things go gone
Coz all is just pure fun
With the start of the melody
The tempo of speed
Rhythm of my soul
Flow with the music

Gotta move it
As I spin around and groove
Gotta sing it
As I shouted the words of my song
Gotta make it
Coz music lies in everyone

Can't you feel the music
Makes me want to groove it
Feel the rhythm that's made
That's my type of music

Can't you feel the music
Makes me want to groove it
Feel the rhythm that's made
That's my type of music


"That's so amazing." Brian looked at me amazed. I just blushed. I think he's the first one to hear my song outside of school of course. "And you have an amazing voice." He added that made me blush more.

"Thanks." I said to him. "So, you wanna use it?" I asked him. 

"We want it." Nick said from behind excitedly. I didn't notice that they were just behind me. "That's song is so cool!" 

The other three just nodded their agreement. "We can use this in the new album or we can play it in this upcoming tour already and see how the crowd takes it." Kevin suggested. The others agreed.

"I think you're gonna be in deep shit." I said to them. The others looked at me curiously. "Well, that means you have a new choreography that you're gonna learn. And this is much quicker coz this is really a dance song." I said to them that made them groan. "Don't worry, I'll help." I said to them with a big grin on my face. They groaned more.

"Children! Come on!" Fatima bellowed on the stage. The five couldn't do anything but just drag their asses to the stage and do their best so that Fatima wouldn't let them repeat everything... again. I walked with them trying to add to their misery. "Martin, join them on the stage." Fatima ordered that snap me out of my joking mood. "I know that you know the steps already and you're the one who had the idea to change a few. Join your boyfriend." Fatima said with an evil grin.

"You can't do that." I said to her defiantly.

"Wanna try me?" Fatima shot back. Should I? I was gonna say something else but Brian was clutching my arm and dragging me to the stage. The others were trying to stifle their laughter. I was pouting then. Bad Fatima.

"Give us a break!" AJ said as he sat on the stage trying to catch his breath. We were already in Larger than Life. Actually, I wasn't feeling tired. I haven't tried dancing this hard and strenuous for quite sometime already since way back in highschool. But I just love dancing.

"Tired already?" I said in mock concern to AJ while patting his sweaty back. 

"Shut up." AJ and the others said in unison. "I can't believe you aren't tired yet with all the dancing we did."

"You just have to psyche yourself and go with the flow." I said to them.

"Come on kids! Your music director isn't tired yet. Let's tire him out. Backstreet get off the stage." Fatima said to the five who quickly get off the stage. And I thought that they were tired? "How about you dance with your new sound. If it's good, we'll prolly use it for these oldies." Fatima said to me. I just nodded happily. I dunno why I'm so energetic today.

The first beats of My Type of Music burst through the speakers and I got lost with it. It's like the sound and me fused together. I wasn't thinking of what I was gonna do but just did what I felt doing with the song. After the song ended, the guys were applauding. I took a bow and blowing them kisses.

"Show off." Nick mumbled.

"Marty here is one heck of a talent. He can sing, he can write songs, and he can dance. I think that's a good choreography for you guys. We'll use it in 2 weeks so learn it. That's it for the day." Fatima said and left.

"That dance?" Brian said tiredly. "How on earth can we do that? It was so fast and so... complex." Brian added.

"That's why I told you that I thought of NSYNC with that song. It's kinda fast and that's there type of music and dance. But you wanted it so learn it." I said as I wiped the sweat off my face with a towel. The others were still pouting. "Come on, let's get changed so we can go home." I said to them and they all agreed.

Brian and I entered the house. "What are we upto for this night?" I asked him. Brian and I decided that we want to have some private time together because God knows when we'll have it again in tour.

"Let's just have a quiet dinner and watch some movie. I am so dead beat tired from all the dancing we did." Brian said. I anticipated that. Good ole Brian.
