They got upstairs to Justin's room and Donny's was directly across the hall. They stopped in front of Justin's door and kiss one more time. " I love you," Justin said as Donny began to walk across the hall but they were still holding hands.

Justin pulled Donny back to him and Donny said, "I love you too." And kissed him yet again.

They did this a few times. Finally, the broke apart and Justin said, "Wake me before you leave tomorrow."

"It's going to be kind of early. Tomorrow, or today is your day off. I want you to get some sleep. God only knows when you will be able to do that again."

"I know, it's just that I wont get to see you all day and I just want to see your face before you leave. Promise me you will."

Donny walked up to Justin, kissed him softly on the lips and said, "OK." Justin smiled and they both said good night. They each opened the doors to their rooms and looked at each other one last time before closing the door.


At the end of the hall Justin and Donny had just vacated, a shadow observed everything. Had the person not stood witness, the occurrences would not be believed. The figure walked back to the room. That Justin would soon be explaining himself was not even a question.

Chapter 11

Justin's eyes slowly opened. When they did he had to shut them quickly because the sun that was shinning into his room blinded him for a second. He turned his head were the sun wasn't so bright. And when he did he saw his clock. It read 11:35am. But that wasn't the only thing he saw. Right next to it was an envelope with his name on it. Justin reached for his glasses and sat up. When he had them on he picked up the envelope and saw that it had his name on it. Because of the handwriting he knew who it was. It wasn't the first time he had a note sitting on the nightstand when he woke up. He opened it and read the note:

Dear Justin,

I know I promised you that I would wake you up before I left this morning, but when I walked into your room and saw you lying there, I just couldn't do it. You looked so peaceful and you looked like an angel. Your curls almost looked like a halo and your smooth skin...sorry got off track. But anyway, I just couldn't bring myself to wake you. You are going to need all the sleep you can get and I just didn't feel right waking you just to say goodbye. But know that I am really sorry. I love you and I hope you understand.

See ya when I get back.

Luv ya,


P.S. I will be sending you a little something to show you that I am sorry and that I love you. If I know you, you should be getting up around 12:00. So it should get there around then. Kisses.

When Justin finished the note he had a big smile on his face. Donny did know him. When he was home he couldn't sleep all day. Unless Justin had been drinking the night before he always got up before noon no matter how late he went to bed. He looked over at the clock again and saw that it now read 11:40. So he got out of bed and went to the bathroom. He did what he had to do and went down stairs in nothing but boxers and a wife beater that he had put on when he came out of the bathroom. When he got to the kitchen there was an other note with his name on it, but this one was from his mom. She had gone out to run some errands and she would be back later. So with his mother gone, his father at work and Donny out working, he was going to be by himself for most of the day.

So Justin started his daily routine. He went over to he cupboard to pick out the cereal he was going to eat this morning. He then grabbed a bowl and spoon and took all of this over to the table. He sat down at the kitchen table and poured the cereal into the bowl. Just then he realized that he forgot the milk so he got up and walked over to the refrigerator and got the milk and sat back down at the table. He poured the milk and just when he was about to start eating the doorbell rang.

He was wondering who would be at his door this early in the morning. Ok it was almost after noon but anyone who knew Justin knew he was just getting up. He walked over to the door and swung it open. At the door stood a young lady in her twenties. She had long blond hair that was under a hat. She had on a green and tan uniform that read `Yolanda's Florist.'

"Justin Timberlake?" she asked when he opened the door.


"I need you to sign here," she instructed as she handed him a clipboard. Justin signed it and handed it back too her. When he did she was standing there with a big smile on her face and had just looked him up and down. She looked him in the eyes and said, "You do look better in person."

When she said that he looked at what he had on and kind of blushed. He looked back up with a smile on his face and said, "If only you had a camera, huh?" She laughed as she turned to walk away. Justin had a confused look on his face and asked, "Weren't you delivering something?"

She nodded her head and as she did a guy stepped in with two boxes in each of his arms. "Where would you like me to put these?" the guy asked Justin.

"Just put them back there," Justin said pointing to the kitchen.

The guy walked back to the kitchen put the boxes down on the counter and walked back out the door. Just as Justin was about to close the door the young lady that had first come to the door reappeared and said, "Mr. Timberlake? These are for you too."

She handed him two smaller boxes and began to walk off. Justin called after her. "Wait! I need to run and get you a tip."

"That's already been taken care of," she told him with a smile.

"OK! Thank you," he told her and closed the door.

He looked at the two gold boxes in his hands and walked back to the kitchen. He saw the four boxes on the table and decided to open the bigger ones first. In the first box there were a dozen pink roses. In the second one there were a dozen blue roses, in the third were a dozen white and the last one had a dozen red. But none of the boxes had a card in them. So Justin grabbed the two smaller ones and opened them. In each box was a single golden rose. These were roses that had been painted gold. In the first one the card said, `the love I have for you, will last as long as this rose. And this rose will last forever.' Justin had had a big smile on his face again and the opened the second one. Like the first one it had a gold rose along with an other card. It read:

`Justin, the four dozen roses where to ask you

to forgive me. But the two gold ones are to

show you that I love you. These roses, if

taken care of, will last forever. They will not

wither or die, and neither will my love for you.

They will not change, as my love for you will not

change. Justin, I love you more each day and

I want you to be able to look at these roses

each day and know that I love you.

Love always,


Justin couldn't believe it. Just when he thought Donny couldn't show him that he loved him anymore, he was proven wrong. He walked over to the phone and dialed Donny's cell phone. It rang once and his voice mail came on, "You know who you've reached and you know what to do. So please do it and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Peace!"

"Hi Baby! Thank you so much for everything. Yes I was a little upset when I woke up but to find that note and then the flowers. It's all forgotten. I love you so much. I can't wait to see you later. Call me if you get a chance. Love you! Bye!" Justin hung up the phone and sat at the table to finish his breakfast. All he could think about was Donny.

As finished his breakfast, he thought about what he could do the rest of the day until Donny got back home.


Nick was making his way through the airport rather quickly. As a matter of fact he was pretty upset. He was doing his best not to let it show because he was in a public place, and he never knew if he would be recognized. But he made it to the first class lounge and sat down. Just as he was getting comfortable, the person he was upset at came in.

"Nick, I am so sorry. Will you please just hear me out?" Nick stood up and tried to walk away but his arm was grabbed before he could get away. "Don't walk away. We need to talk about this."

Nick snatched his arm away and said, "There is nothing to talk about. What you did last night or tried to do last night is not something you can just talk away."

"I'm sorry Nick. Really sorry. I know this isn't much of an excuse but I was drunk and lonely."

"Lonely? You almost crossed a line that both of us drew, and all you can say is that you were lonely? Fuck you!" Nick started to walk away but again he was stopped.

"Are you going to let our friendship end because of a mistake?"

"A mistake? Is that was you call what you did?"


"Brian, I wake up with you naked, my clothes off and you trying to lift my legs up," hissed Nick.

"Like I said, I was drunk. I helped you get to your room and with the mix of alcohol and loneliness I let things get out of hand. I'm sorry," pleaded Brian.

No matter what Nick knew he couldn't stay mad a Brian long. Brian was his best friend and they were like brothers. But at the same time he couldn't just let this slide either. "Look Brian, I know your sorry and that we were both drunk last night, but the thing is we are suppose to be brothers and you did something that a brother shouldn't do."

"I know Nick and I am really, REALLY sorry. It will never happen again. I promise," Brian told Nick.

Nick looked at Brian for a second then pulled him into a hug. "I forgive you. But know that if it ever happens again..."

Brian stopped him and said, "I know. You will never forgive me, right?"

"I'm not joking Brian. This will never happen again. Understand?"

"Yeah," Brian responded. Nick then walked away but not as upset as he was before.

AJ walked up behind Brian and watched as Nick sat next to Howie. Nick and Howie had there backs to the two friends so they didn't see them talking. "So, what was that all about?"

"Damn it! I almost had him," Brian stated as he plopped down in a chair.

AJ sat next to him with a smirk on his face. "What happen?"

"As you know I talked Nick into going out with us last night and after you guys left I got him a little drunk," Brian started to explain.

"You weren't drinking?" AJ asked him.

"Yeah, you know how we do it. We keep ordering the drinks but feeding the drinks down the person and not drinking much ourselves."

"Of course. Get them drunk and play drunk. I know the trick."

"Well I thought I had Nick drunk out his mind. So when I helped him back to his room, I was going to help myself to him," Brian told AJ.

"What went wrong?"

"Well he must not have been as drunk as I thought, cause I had just got his cloths off and was just about to fuck his brains out when he woke up. My dick was hard, his legs were on my shoulders and I was about to go in when he woke up."

"Damn! What did he say?"

"He was still a little drunk but he knew what I was doing. I of course pretended to still be really drunk, but he was still pissed and put me out."

"Damn, that's fucked up. You almost had it B," AJ said as he patted his friend on the back. "If you would have had the shit, he wouldn't have woken up."

"I know. Don't remind me. Damn! I was so close you just don't feel me," he said to AJ. "When is Jojo going to get some more?"

"He isn't, but he said he is getting his hands on some new stuff. This shit lets them remember everything."

"That's not cool. I can't have them remembering."

"Nah, from what he tells me, this stuff makes them want to do it. And the next morning, they remember everything. How they felt, what they did, everything," AJ explains to Brian.

"Really? When can you get me some of that?" Brian asked with a plain forming.

"I don't know. He's suppose to give me a call later on this week."

"Cool! Just let me know, cause not only can I get Nick and break him and Lance up, but I could keep Donny away from Justin," Brian revealed to AJ.

"You know if the guys ever found out about this you could be in some serious shit," AJ told Brian.

"I don't care. As long as I get Nick away from Nstink and Flavvaless it wont matter. It will be an extra bonus to keep Justin away from someone who loves him and he loves," Brian said with an evil smirk on his face.

"How do you know Justin loves Donny?"

"Please! I knew that the day Justin saw him. Why do you think I started that fight? Justin fell for him before he even met him. You know how they say everyone has a soul mate?" AJ nodded his head so that Brian could continue. "Well, I am almost sure that Donny and Justin are soul mates. But I will do what ever I have to, too keep them apart."

"Why? It's not like you really want to be with Justin, so what's the big deal?"

"Nsync is like a body. JC's the soul, Lance the Brian, Joey's the muscle, and Chris is the backbone, but Justin. He's the heart. You stop the heart, and the whole body dies. If we are going to get back on top where we belong, we have to kill Nsync. And if you take away the 3 most important parts of the body, it can't be revived."


"What's up Kaos?" Howie asked Nick as he sat down next to him.

"I just want to get home to Lance and just forget about this damn tour," Nick stated.

"Am I not enough for you anymore Nicky?" Howie asked jokingly trying to lighten Nick up a bit.

"It's not you D. It's Brian,"

"Brian? What's wrong with Brian?"

"I don't know. He did something last night that just threw me off. I don't understand him," Nick told Howie. He didn't want to tell him what really happen because he didn't want to start a big fight.

"What happen?"

"I don't want to get into it, but all I do know is that Brian has changed. And not for the better."

"Well maybe with him getting married and he and Justin breaking up has him all stressed out," said Howie.

"Maybe, but if things don't change, I don't know if I can take being around him anymore."

"So what are you saying? You would leave the group?" Howie asked getting a little nervous.

"No I would never do that, but I would stay away from Brian. No more Frick and Frack. I wont even want to be in the same room with him, unless in public."

"Don't you think that's a little much?"

"It would be either that or leave and leaving is the last thing I would do. Besides, things haven't gotten that bad. I'm just talking maybe."

"Well what ever you do, I'll have your back," said Howie as he put his arm around Nick and hugged him.

"Thanks D."

"Unless you decide to leave the group then I would have to kick your ass," Howie said in a loving manner.

Nick pushed Howie in a playful manner and said, "Fuck you D."

"You wish!" Howie said as the two friends continued to play around.


"Great job guys. We are almost done with the interviews," Lance informed the guys of Flavva.

"How many more do we have to do? I mean we have been to just about every radio station in Orlando. We have called every station in every major city. Who else could we need to talk too?" Joe asked sitting at a conference table.

"Yeah. We have been at this all morning and most of the afternoon. We still have to meet with Jonny about security and the choreographer," added Tommy.

"Jonny should be here any minute. He had to meet with the people at Jive and he has had to get things finished up with the tour," Lance informed them.

"Fine, lets just get this over with so I can get home," said Donny.

"Someone's in a hurry to get home," teased Keith.

Just when Donny was about to respond his phone rang. "Hello?"

"Hi sweetie, how are you doing?"

"Hi mom. I'm doing fine, how are you?"

"Good. How are things going?"

"Really good. We have been in interviews all day and we start rehearsal next week."

"So does that mean you won't be coming home anytime soon?" Donny's mother asked with a little disappointment in her voice.

"No I will be home soon."

"That's good to hear. Your sisters and brothers have been asking when you were coming home," his mother told him. It was true, they had been asking but she really was calling to find out for herself. She missed her oldest child.

"Well let them know that I will be home to see them as soon as I can," Donny said somewhat sadly.

There was a short pause before his mother said something else. "What is this I hear you staying in a hotel?"

"I had to stay somewhere. But one of the guys that lives here offered me a place to stay. I'm staying with him and his family," Donny told her.

"Why?" his mother asked in a harsh tone.

"I didn't want to stay in the hotel anymore."

"Why didn't you stay at the house?"

"Because I didn't want anyone to know who I am. Or more like who I'm related too."

"You have a problem with me being your mother?"

"Of course not. I love you but all my life you kept me out of the press and with the fact that you don't like what I choose to do, I figure I would keep you out of it as long as I can."

His mother didn't respond right away. But when she did, he could tell the bit of anger she had in her voice was now gone. "Fine! But at anytime you want or need to stay in the house, know that you can. Just don't have to many people there, ok?"

"Yes ma'am."

"And let Eddie know that you will be there. He has had security checking the place and if they see you there and not know your suppose to be there it may cause some problems. Just let him know and things should be fine."

"Ok, I will." Donny continued talking to his mother while the other talked around him. Jonny walked in and sat down at the table. "Mom, I have to go. Our manger just walked in and we have some things to get done before we can leave."

"Ok but before you go there is someone here that wants to say Hi," his mother said and handed the phone to someone.

"Hi Donny," said a little voice on the phone.

Donny got the biggest smile on his face. He recognized the voice even though it was a young voice. "Hi Lamar, how ya doin?" Donny asked the little kid.


"Whatcha doin?"

"Nothing," said the little boy.

"I miss you."

"I miss you too. When are you coming home?"

"I don't know."

"Well can I come see you?"

"We have to ask mommy ok?"

"OK! Mommy, can I go to see Donny please?" Donny could hear his mother tell him she would think about it. Lamar then turned his attention back to his big brother, "Mommy said maybe."

`OK but in the mean time, I want you to be good ok? And I love you."

"I love you too. Bye!"

"Bye. Let me speak to mommy ok?" Lamar handed the phone to his mother and went back to whatever he had been doing. His mother got back on the phone, "Mom that was dirty."

"What? He came in and heard me day your name and wanted to talk to you. I didn't plan that."

"Yeah right, whatever. I will do my best to come see you all soon, ok? I promise."

"That's all we ask," his mother told him.

"Well I will try, ok?"

"Ok. I love you."

"I love you too, mom." Donny then hung up and looked at his friends.

"That went pretty good. Does she seem to be coming around?" Tommy asked him.

"I'm not sure. She really didn't talk about it. She kind of stayed away from work, but she did get pissed when I told her where I was staying. She wanted to know why I didn't stay in the house she owns down here," Donny explained to them.

"She owns a house down here?" Tommy asked.


"Is it anything like the one we stayed at?" Tommy asked again.

"No. It's not as big. It only has 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms," Donny told Tommy.

Everyone sat there with their mouths hanging open. "Please tell me why we are not staying there instead of small as apartments or with friends?" Joe asked Donny.

"Because I don't want everyone to know who my mother is yet," Donny told them.

"Why is it such a big deal? So what if people find out that your mother is a billionaire? It's not like she owns the record company. Does she?" Tommy asked.

"It's not about the money and you know that. She never wanted me in the spotlight. She never wanted any of us in the spotlight. She did her damnedist to keep us out of the media, and I have to say did a very good job. No one ever followed us to school or even knew what school we went to for that matter," Donny started to explain. "But with me doing what I do, she knew that was going to open a door. They would go to my school find friends and eventually my brothers and sisters and tie us to her. And I don't want them to be hounded."

"First of all, the press already knows about your sister and brother. The school has done everything they can to protect them. It is just a matter of time before they figure it out," Jonny Wright told him.

"So are you saying I should tell it before they find out?" Donny nervously asked his manager and friend.

"No! Let them do there own digging. When they find out it will be just more publicity for you," Lance jumped in.

Donny silently agreed and the meeting started. As they were talking 4 huge guys came into the room.


"Lance? You here?" Nick asked as he walked into his boyfriends' home. "Lance, baby?"

"He's not home yet," said a voice from the kitchen.

"JC? Is that you?" Nick asked as he set his bag down and made his way to the where the voice was coming from.

"Yeah. I'm in the kitchen." A few seconds later, Nick walked into the kitchen and sat down at the table. "Hey Nick, how was the flight?"

"Ok I guess. I slept most of the way. Had on hell of a hangover."

JC laughed at the younger blond and said, "Went out last night, huh? Must've had a hell of a good time."

"Not really. I didn't ever want to go, but the guys talked me into going. It was suppose to be like his bachelor party. Just with out the stripper, but we all got really wasted."

The smile JC had on his face was now gone. Hearing that the man he loved was going to get married was not the happiest thing in the world. And hearing about the party before the wedding was not helping either. "JC, are you ok?" Nick asked him seeing him mood change.

"Yeah, I'm ok. It's's hard," JC told Nick.

"What's hard?"

"Hearing about Brian getting married. I love him so much and I'm loosing him. I mean it was bad enough what Justin said, but..."

Nick cut JC of right there. "Look JC. Who you love is up to you. But to think that you best friend would lie to you to get someone back that he doesn't even want anymore is crazy."

"You actually believe him?"

"Believe him? JC I saw it with my own eye's," Nick told JC.

That shocked JC. He never knew anybody had seen what Justin had said. "What do you mean you saw it?"

"I have walked in on Brian when he is hitting Justin. Hell I think because of me, Brian never really hurt him. At least not that I know of."

"What are you saying?"

"What I'm saying is, even though Brian is my best friend. I know he has another side to him. JC, Brian has hit Justin. He has talked to him like he was a piece of shit. I love Brian. He's my friend and brother and I would never lie on him. But he needs help. Sure he never hit you. But think about it. How often are you with him? And when you are with him you have sex and either he leaves or you have to leave. He and Justin spent a lot of time together. And during those times it wasn't always the happiest for Justin. Hell if he wasn't hitting Justin, he would make him feel so low that Justin would just cry."

"So what your saying is that you sat back and watched Brian do all that to Justin?"

"No! I did what I could to stop Brian. But Justin made me promise not to say anything to anyone. So I did my best to make sure that they were never left alone as much as possible. JC, that was the hardest thing for me to do. You know until Lance I was in love with Justin. I never wanted to see him go through that but he said he was happy and that he loved Brian. Me trying to get him to leave Brian would have made things even worse," Nick told JC who seemed to be coming around.

"So that is what this is all about? You being in love with Justin," spat JC.

"No! It's not like that," Nick tried to explain.

"You would lie on you best friend just so you can make Justin happy? You would do anything for Justin wouldn't you? Even make your own friend look bad? Well I'm not falling for it. You and Justin will pay for this. And Donny, Brian, and Lance will all see how pathetic you both are."

JC stormed out of the kitchen and out the front door. Nick sat there stunned. He couldn't believe how JC had taken everything he had told him and turned it all around. "JC. I hope you don't find out the hard way, that we are telling you the truth. For your own sake."


Justin and Lonnie walked in to his front door with their arms full of bags. "Mom? I'm home," Justin yelled into the house.

Justin made his way to the kitchen to sit the bags down and so did Lonnie. "I'm going to go get the rest of the stuff in the car. Do you want me to put it in your room?"

"Sure. Thanks big guy," Justin said to his friend and bodyguard.

Just then Justin's mom walked into the kitchen in a big hurry. "Hi sweetie, I can't really talk right now. Your father and I have to go out of town for the weekend and I totally forgot about it. So it's just going to be you and Donny here for a few nights, ok?"

"Sure, that's not a problem. Where are you guys going?" Justin asked with a big smile on his face.

"Your father has some business to take care of in Miami so we're just going to stay the weekend," his mother explained.

"Really? The whole weekend?"

"Yeah. We'll be gone the entire weekend. Tonight, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So for four day's you and Donny will have the house to your selves." Justin had a big grin on his face. "That doesn't mean you can have every girl in Orlando in this house, understand?"

"Ok mom. That won't be a problem," Justin said still with a big smile on his face.

She looked at her only child. She loved him with all her heart. He was doing everything he dreamed of. He had made it. Not only that but looked happy. Totally happy. But she could also see there was something bothering him. "Justin, before I leave I want to tell you that I love you. I am so proud of you. And you mean the world to me."

"I love you too mom," Justin told her. He wanted to tell him mom that he was in love. He was in love with another man but he didn't want to loose his mother. Out of all his family. She was there with him through everything. From Star Search, to the Mickey Mouse Club, from talent shows to the start of Nsync. She was always there supporting him.

"Lynn honey, lets go," Paul called from the front door.

Lynn walked over to her 6'1" baby boy and pulled him into the biggest hug and kissed him on the cheek, "You take care ok. And you and Donny be good."

"We will. You and dad have a good time."

"We'll try," said Lynn then she let go of Justin and made her way out the door. "One last thing Justin. Try and work things out between you and JC. You two are like brothers and this can't go on forever. I know you love him so get past what ever it is between you."

"It's not up to me mom, it's up to him," Justin told his mother with a hurt look on his face.

She smiled at him and made her way out the house. She got into the car with her husband. They pulled out of the driveway and began their trip. "Now why are we going out of town again?" Paul asked.

"Because, Justin and JC need to work things out and I don't think they can do it with us there."

"But they're not even talking to each other, how do you expect them to work things out?"

"Because I know someone who can help the two of them get together. And he should be on his way to the house now."


JC knocked at the door of his lover's house there in Orlando. Brian was only renting the house while he was staying in Orlando. He lived in Kentucky but was staying in Orlando for his wedding and to prepare for the tour.

JC needed to see and talk to Brian. He was so confused. Even though he had accused Nick of lying, what Nick had told him really had him thinking. Would Nick really make something like this up? And if so, why? Nick and Brian were best friends. Just like him and Justin. But their friendship wasn't what it uses to be. Since Nick started dating Lance, Brian and Nick weren't as close. But still, they were still like brothers so Nick wouldn't do that to his brother. Or would he?

Just then the door opened. There stood a pretty blond woman with a big smile on her face. "Hi JC. What are you doing here?"

"Hi Leigh Ann."

"Come on in. Have a seat." JC walked in to the nice house took a seat in the TV room. He had been to this house before with Brian. Brian had rented it before and they had met up here a few times. "What can I do for you JC?"

"Well actually I came to talk to Brian, is he here?"

"No he got a call and left. He said he would be back later on tonight. Is there something I can help you with?"

"Nah. There is something I need to know and only he can tell me"

"Does this have anything to do with him and my cousin?" Leigh Ann asked him.

JC looked up in shock, "What do you mean?"

"JC I know about Justin and Brian. I know that Justin is gay and I know that he and Brian were in a relationship," Leigh Ann informed her friend.

"But how?"

"I've known for a long time. Brian told me before we got engaged. But he also told me it was over. That he loved me and only me so he broke it off with Justin," she told him.


"Yeah, that's when he proposed. He told me it was over and that he wanted to marry me."

This upset JC greatly. Brian had told him that he proposed to Leigh Ann to hide the fact that he was gay. That he wanted to be with JC forever. That he loved only him. "Did he tell you why him and Justin broke up?"

"Yeah, he said he wanted to be with me. Is that what you wanted to talk to him about? Him and Justin?"

JC was deep in thought. He didn't know Brian at all. He had lied to him about this marriage. He had lied to Leigh Ann about why him and Justin broke up. He had lied to Justin about not telling Leigh Ann about their relationship. What else could he have lied about? Could Nick, Donny and most importantly Justin be telling the truth?

"Leigh, when was the last time you talked to Justin?"

"I don't know it's been awhile, why?"

"Does Justin know you know he's gay?"

"Brian said he told him."

JC jumped up and headed for the door. "Leigh I gotta go."

"OK, but will you guys be at the wedding? Leigh Ann asked JC.

"I don't know."

"Well can you tell Justin that it would mean a lot to me if he came. He is still my cousin and no matter what I still love him. Nothing would ever change that."

JC turned to her and smiled, "I'm sure he knows that Leigh. I will talk to him and the guys and find out ok?"

She hugged JC and said, "Please, try to get him to come. I'm sure he really doesn't want to be there because of what he had with Brian but ask him to do this for me."

"I'll see what I can do," JC said as he went to his car. He got in his car and drove off. He pulled out his cell phone and dialed Brian's number. All he got was the voice mail. He hung up. `Damn. I wonder where he could be?' JC thought to himself.


"Hey baby, what's up?"

"When are you coming home, I miss you?"

"Well, we just got out and Lance is going to stop and pick up Nick than we're going to stop and get something to eat then we'll be there, ok?" Donny told Justin over the phone as he was walking to the car with Lance.

"OK! Oh by the way. Mom and dad went out of town for the weekend. They wont be back until Sunday."

"Cool. That means we have the house to ourselves," Donny said with a big smile on his face. "Would it be cool if I asked Nick and Lance if they wanted to stay the weekend?"

"Hell yea! I've already called Joey, Chris and I tried JC but his phone was off so if you see him tell him he can come too. And let Keith and the guys know they can come kick it too."

"Aiight. Does this mean you are going to try and work things out with JC?"

"Yeah. I can't take this shit anymore. If he doesn't want to believe that Brian hit me that's fine. I would rather just say it didn't happen then loose his friendship," Justin said honestly.

"I don't think you have to do that. Just try to make him understand that you are only telling him because you needed to, and that if he still wants to be with Brian that's up to him."

"Do you know the worst part of this whole thing?" Justin asked.


"Brian is marrying my cousin this weekend and he is still fucking around with JC and God knows who else."

"I just hope she knows what she is getting into."

"How could she? She doesn't even know about me and Brian. They met at the same time me and Brian kind of hooked up. He didn't even know we were cousins until he showed up at a family get together with her."

"Are you going to go to the wedding?"

"I want to cause that's my cousin and all but I don't know if I could sit there and watch her marry that asshole," states Justin.

"Well don't worry about it. If you want to go, go. But don't let Brian be the reason you don't go. Go because you want to see Leigh Ann happy. Even if it does mean her marrying a guy that's no good," Donny said to Justin.

"We'll talk about it when you get here. When will that be?" Justin asked trying to change the subject.

"About and hour I guess."

"That's kewl. That gives me some time to work out a little," Justin thought out loud.

"Ooo! Does that mean your going to be all sweaty when I get there?"

Justin bit on his bottom lip and said, "Not likely but we can always work one up if you like?"

"Hey! Ask Justin what he wants to eat?" Lance asked from the driver side of his car as he was opening the door.

"Who was that, Lance?" Justin asked having heard someone say something.

"Yeah he wanted me to ask you what you want to eat for dinner?"

"You," Justin answered seductively.

Donny had a big smile on his face, "No what do you want to eat, as in food."

"You in chocolate sauce," Justin said hearing Donny smile over the phone.

"Justin be serious, what do you want use to bring you?" Donny asked blushing a little.

"I am serious. I want you home as soon as possible. You've been gone all day, and I just want to hold you in my arms and kiss you," Justin said with all the love he could.

"Baby, I know what you mean. I wanted nothing more then to be next to you today but you know we had to work. And guess what I have?" Donny asked trying to change the subject.

"What? A hard on?"

"No you horn ball. I have a new shadow. He'll be coming by the house tomorrow. That will be his first official day on the job," Donny told Justin trying to change the subject. The reason why was because he was now in the car with Lance and he could hear every word Donny was saying now.

"I don't plan on letting you out of my site tomorrow, let alone out of bed," Justin continued.

Donny laughed because he knew Justin wasn't kidding. They had the weekend off because of Brian and Leigh Ann's wedding, which they all were suppose to attend. "Trust me Justin, there is nothing in the world that would keep me from you tomorrow. Tomorrow's Friday, we ain't go to work, and we ain't got shit to do," Donny joked.

"Ok Chris Tucker. You gonna get me high too?" Justin asked knowing that Donny was quoting from one of his favorite movies, Friday.

"Yep. A high you will never forget."

"Ooo, I can't wait."

"Now, what do you want for dinner?" Donny asked Justin yet again.

"What ever. I'm not to picky."

"Yeah right. How bout Chinese?"

"Nah, we always get Chinese, how bout Mexican?"

"Mexican it is then. See ya when we get there."

"Ok. I'm going to work out before you get here so when you get here I maybe in the shower, ok?"

"Sure! See ya then sexy,"


Donny hung up and looked at Lance and said, "Ok lets go."

Donny and Lance pulled out of the WEG compound after informing Keith, Joe, and Tommy about the Lynn and Paul leaving and how Justin wanted everyone to come kick it at his place. They talked a little as they drove. When they were closer to Lance's place, Donny asked, "Would you and Nick like to stay at Justin's the weekend?"

"I don't know. Nick is in the wedding and I don't know what he has to do so I have to ask him first," Lance told Donny.

"I know you guys haven't really seen each other in a while so if you don't want to I'd understand. I just thought it would be cool to hang with an other couple," Donny explained.

"The other guys are gonna be there too,"

"But they will most likely go home or out. Justin has different plans," Donny said with a smirk on his face.

"Well I don't think I want to be there for those plans," Lance said jokingly.

"Like you and Nick don't have the same thing in mind?"

They both laughed and talked as they continued the drive. Once they got to Lance's apartment, they made their way up to his place and walked in. "JC? Nick? I'm home," Lance yelled as he closed the door.

They could hear movement somewhere in the back of the 4 bedroom 4 bathroom apartment. Then they heard someone say, "I'll be right there."

Donny made his was to the living room and sat down on the couch. Lance followed him in and turned the TV on. He picked up the remote and handed it to Donny. "Turn on what ever you want to watch."

Just then Nick walked into the room with nothing on but a towel that was wrapped around his waist. He was still a little wet from the shower he had just taken. Both Lance and Donny looked at him with their mouths open. "Hey baby, I've been waiting for you all day," Nick said with a big smile on his face. Nick walked over to Lance and put his arms around his lover's waist. "Come here, let me show you how much I missed you."

Nick leaned in and planted a kiss on Lance's lips. In response, Lance wrapped his arms around Nick's neck and pulled him closer into the kiss. The kiss lasted for only a few seconds but it held nothing but passion. "Oh God! I wanted to do that all day. I missed you so much," Lance said as he ran his hands up and down Nick's smooth arms.

"I know what you mean. I couldn't get here soon enough," Nick told Lance and then kissed him again.

Both Nick and Lance totally forgot Donny was in the room. Nick undid Lance's shirt and pushed it off his shoulders onto the floor. Once the shirt was off, Nick put his arms around Lance's waist and grabbed Lance's soft butt pulling him closer to him. That caused Lance to moan. Nick took the moan as permission to continue. Nick let go of the soft globes and began to undo Lance's shorts.

While Nick was doing all that, Lance ran his hands up and down Nick's damp back. When Nick got Lance's shorts down, Lance could feel the state Nick was in. His dick was hard as a flag poll and was trying to come from behind the towel he was wearing.

Lance was standing there, lips locked to his boyfriends. Both almost completely naked and both aroused beyond belief. So Lance did what only came next. He removed the towel. It landed at Nick's feet.

"Oh, god! I need you right now," Nick moaned, as he felt the cool air hit his now totally naked body. He grabbed the waistband of Lance's boxers and pulled them down over Lance's stiff cock. He was at face to face with one of his favorite parts of Lance's body, but stood back up and kissed Lance again.

Donny loved what he was seeing. I mean come on, what gay guy wouldn't love seeing two of the finest guys, Lance Bass and Nick Carter, not only standing only feet away from them naked, but on the verge of having sex. It was every gay mans dream. But his dream was not there. His dream was at home waiting for him to get there. And as much as he wanted to watch Nick and Lance fuck their brains out, he wanted to be with Justin even more. "Umm, guys! Did you forget I was here?" His question went on deaths ears. Nick and Lance were so into each other that they totally forgot Donny was there. All Donny got was a few more moans and a great look at Nick's ass. "Guys, can't you take that to the bedroom or something?" Again all he got was more moans and a great look of Nick lying on his back with Lance on top of him on the couch. Nicks legs wrapped around Lance pulling him down on him.

That's when he realized there was no getting to them. It had been almost a month since they had seen each other and he knew if it would have been him and Justin there would have been no stopping him. So he walked out of the living room and went into the kitchen to get some cold water. His grandfather had told him once that the only way to separate two dogs having sex was to spray them with a hose. Well Donny didn't have a hose and Nick and Lance weren't dogs, but he figured that ice cold water would do the same for those two as hose would for dogs.

He went over to the refrigerator grabbed a bottle of water and then grabbed a glass. He thought about it, and decided that the water it self may not be enough. So he filled the glass with ice and put the already cold water in the glass. "This should get their attention." Just then his cell phone rang. "Hello?"

"Hey Donny, this is JC. Is Justin with you?" said the voice on the other end.

"No. He's at home, why?"

"Well I've called the house and no one's answering."

"Well Lynn and Paul went out of town and won't be back until Sunday. As a matter of fact Justin told me to tell you to come by. A bunch of us are going to just kick it at the house until the wedding and he wants you to be there too."

"Well I need to talk to him so sure I'll be there. As a matter of fact I think I should talk to him as soon as possible so do you know where he is?"

"He should be at the house. He said he was going to work out while he waited on us to get there."

"He must just have the music on. He does that when he works out," JC said to himself but Donny could hear him. "How long before you and the love birds get there?"

"It could be awhile. They started kissing and undressing with me in the room, so unless I stop them, which I was about to do, but I think I may be too late. Not even I have the heart to stop them now." Donny kind of laughed in the phone. "Or wait until they're done and hope it's going to be a quickie."

"Doubtful!" JC laughs along with Donny. "Look, get there as soon as you can."

"I'll do my best. Hey, JC. Are you going to try to work this thing out with Justin?"

JC sighed into the phone and said, "Hopefully. We can't go on like this anymore."

"Good. It's about time."

"Yeah, it is." JC then said his good byes and hung up.

Donny sat in the kitchen and could hear Nick and Lance and thought, `This wouldn't work now anyway.' And began to drink the cold liquid.


As JC drove to Justin's house all he did was think:

"Brian has done nothing but lie. He's lied to me, he's lied to Justin and he has lied to Leigh Ann. On the other hand Justin had lied to me too. Or did he? I did see that bruise on his face a few weeks ago. And everything he told us fit. When we went to the hospital the night Justin fell, the doctor had said it wasn't broken. And the next day Justin could barely move."

"But still, Brian had never hit me. We had been fooling around for a long time and Brian had never laid a hand on me. But then again, we would have sex and he would be out the door. So we never spent any time together. He never had the chance. Not to mention he would be a real ass when I tried to just be close to him." JC was confused. All he knew for sure is that he had too tell Justin what Leigh Ann told him. They could talk about the abuse later.


Justin was working out and had the CD player blastin. He had old school 2pac on at the time. He was rappin along with Pac and Snoop:

The song went off and the CD changed and began to play something else. Justin was all sweaty. He had pulled his shirt off and had it lying on the workout bench he was sitting on. He had his back to the door so he didn't hear anyone come in. He was looking out at the pool. His mind was on the music that was playing, but he knew it was about time for Donny and the guys to get there. At least he hoped so.

Justin was just about to lean over and pick up a weight, when a pair of hands grabbed his shoulders and began to massage them. Justin jumped at first but didn't turn around. He just went with the feeling. He knew only someone with the security code could get in to the house with out him knowing and the only people who had the code were the guys, his parents, and Donny. And the only one who would be rubbing his shoulders would be Donny. "Ummm, that feels great." Justin said as he started to relax.

The person who was massaging Justin's shoulders placed a kiss on his neck. Justin brought he hands up to the person's arms and ran his hand up and down the strong arm. "Oh baby, I've missed you. I didn't think you would ever get here," said Justin as he closed his eyes. "And for the record I forgive you."

"I knew you would come around," said a voice that Justin recognized.

Justin's eyes shot open and he jumped up off the bench he was sitting on, "Brian? What the hell are you doing here?" Justin asked him as he backed away from where he had just been sitting.

"To talk to you."

"Well I don't want to talk to you so get out. How the hell did you get in here anyway? I had the alarm on, and I know I didn't give you the code. What you do? Get it from JC?" Justin asked him as he grabbed his shirt and began to put it back on.

"Now I know why I miss you so much. You are a sexy specimen." Brian said as he made his was toward Justin. But as he closed in, Justin backed up.

"That's the problem. I should have been you boyfriend and not a piece of meat," Justin spat at Brian.

"Baby! Don't sound like that. You are my boyfriend," Brian said has he backed Justin up against the wall.

"No, I'm not. You are nothing but a pain in my ass, and I want you out of my house. Now!"

"You don't mean that. Besides you mother said you needed to talk. Even she knows we belong together and she doesn't even know we are."

"You're such a dick. She wanted us to talk because she thinks I have a problem with JC being gay. If she knew the real reason there is no way she would want you in the same city let alone my house," Justin told him coldly. "Now get out before I through you out."

When Justin said that he pushed pass Brian. Brian reached out and grabbed him by his long hair and threw him back against the wall. Brian had his hand around Justin's throat and was pressed against him. "Who do you think you are? Talking to me like that, huh? You know what I can and will do to you."

Justin pushes Brian off of him and tries to catch his breathe, "Brian, I'm not that person who you can just treat any way. I use to take that shit cause I thought I loved you. But the truth is I didn't. What we had was never love. Hell, the sex wasn't even good," Justin told Brian.

But before Justin could continue, Brian punched Justin in the stomach. It sent Justin to his knees. As Justin was trying to get air into his longs, Brian grabbed him by the hair and pulled Justin head up so he could look him in the face. "Look! I have put up with your bullshit for months. I let you have you fun with that bitch Donny." Justin had a look of shock on his face. How did Brian know? "Didn't think I would find out? Well just because you have turned Nick against me doesn't mean that you turned AJ against me too. See, unlike Nick, AJ is loyal to his friends. He told me that he saw you and Donny kissing while we were in L.A. And you know what? That's fine. I don't mind. But that shit is over with. You are mine again. Do you hear me? Mine!"

"Brian, please," Justin began to beg. "Please don't do this."

Brian brings his other hand across Justin's face. "Shut the fuck up! You don't tell me what to do. I'm running the show here. You do what I say, and right now your going to do what you do best."

Justin looked up with fear. Normally he would be able to fight back but Brian had caught him off guard. Knocked the air out of him and Justin was weak due to the hard work out he had just had.

Brian forcefully released Justin's hair and began to undo his pants. "This is going to be like old times."


"Guys, come on. You've been in there forever. I want to go," Donny whined through Lance's bedroom door.

After Nick and Lance said their `hellos'. They went into the bedroom to shower and that was almost 30 minutes ago. "We'll be out in a minute," Nick calls through the door.

"Come on. You said that 20 minutes ago. You guys are either the cleanest people I know or you are still getting it on. Now if you are still screwing around in there I'm going to kill you both cause I need to get to Justin. Something's wrong, I can feel it." Donny told them.

The door flew open and there stood Lance all dress and ready to go. "We're ready, geez."

"Thank you."

"Aww keep you panties on, we didn't take that long," Nick said from behind Lance.

"What ever Nick. I just want to go. Something doesn't feel right and I just want to get to Justin."

"What could be wrong?" Lance asked.

"Other then the fact that he needs a little action," Nick said as he wrapped his arms around Lance's neck from behind.

"I don't know, but I do know we have to go. So lets go get the food and get to Justin's as soon as possible," Donny said with a serious look on his face.

"We're ready so lets go," Lance said and pulled a loss from Nick's embrace.

They were making there way out to the car when Nick put his arm around Donny's shoulder and said, "Hey? You ok?"

"Yeah I just need to get to Justin that's all," Donny said to his friend.

"We'll be there soon. Besides, you got to see a free sex show, so why the long face?" Nick said jokingly.

Donny pushes Nick away playfully. "Bite me Carter."

"Aww, quit acting like you didn't enjoy it," Lance added as he unlocked the doors to his car.

"You could have joined us at any time," Nick said as they climbed into the car and drove off. Donny knew that they were just messing around with him but he kinda liked the idea. Not that he would ever do that. At least not without Justin there to join in too. "And who's to say you didn't get off to watching us anyway."

"Oh, now that you mention it, You may want to clean off you table real good Lance, cause it got kind of messy while I was in the kitchen," Donny said as he was trying to keep a straight face.

Lance looked at him in shock through the rear view mirror. He could see that Donny was trying not to laugh. "Well you just added to what Nick and I already had on that table so it's no big deal."

"Gross! Remind me to never eat at that table," Donny said as they all begin to laugh.

After everyone calmed down, Donny got real quiet and just stared out the window and watched as they drove. Lance could see something was bothering Donny. "Donny, what's up? You got awfully quiet back there."

"I'm not sure. Something doesn't feel right. I'm not sure of what it is," Donny said still looking out the window.

Nick who had been playing with Lance's neck, turned to look at Donny and said, "Dude, don't trip. We will get you to your man soon."

"Besides, what could happen?" Lance asked as he brought the car to a stop.

"I don't know. But something is wrong."


Justin was winded and weakened. He knew he had to do something but he wasn't sure what. Brian was strong. Real strong. Not that Justin wasn't, but Brian was stronger then he looked. Justin had been here before. Brian would get angry and beat him up, but then Justin put up with it because he loved Brian. Or at least he thought he did. Justin didn't really know what love was until he met Donny. And it was because of Donny; Justin knew he had to fight back. He couldn't let this go on.

So Justin had to think and think fast. He began to franticly scoot back from Brian so he could get up and run out of the small gym. But before he could get far Brian grabbed his leg and pulled him back. "Where the hell do you think your going?"

"Get off me," Justin said as he struggled to get from under Brian, who had Justin pinned down.

"You're going to give me what I want or I'm just gonna take it. It's up to you," Brian told Justin as he got right in Justin's face. He brought his face in to kiss Justin on the lips but Justin moved his face just before Brian could make contact. But Brian was determined and he grabbed Justin's face and forced their lips together.

But in doing so he had to let go of one of Justin's hand and that gave Justin the opportunity to get his hand between him and Brian and push his attacker off. Again Justin tried to scoot away from Brian but again Brian grabbed him and was able to keep him from getting away. But this time he brought his elbow down into Justin's chest knocking the wind out of Justin again.

"You must want me to really fuck you up, don't you? You keep this shit up and I'll do just that." Brian hissed as he sat up.

He had both of Justin's hand pinned over his had and when he sat up he brought them up to Justin's chest and pinned them down with one hand. He used his free hand to continue undoing his belt.

When Brian did this, Justin was able to get a hand free and hit Brian in the face, knocking Brian off of him.

He scrabbled to get up. Justin knew if he could get on his feet and get away from Brian long enough he could defend himself better. But just as he got up and began to move away from Brian, Brian grabbed his ankle and down Justin went again. Face down.

"You lil son-of-a-bitch," Brian yelled as he brought his fist down into Justin's side. Brian was beyond pissed now. He had never had this much trouble out of Justin before. Even the times when he had to force Justin into sex or when he just got physical with Justin, Justin would never fight back. But tonight he was. Tonight Justin wasn't the only one who was going to have bruises. And that pissed Brian off.

Even with Justin struggling he was able to turn Justin over so that he was now on his back. He held Justin down and sat on top of him so that he couldn't move. Some how Brian had Justin's hands pinned to his sides and Brian was straddling him. "I got you now bitch. And now that I got you, I'm going to really make you pay. Not only for hitting me, but now I don't even get to fuck you."

Brian raised his fist ready to hit Justin and Justin closed his eyes. He knew he was trapped. There was nothing he could do. All he could do was wait for the first blow and hope that Brian got tired quick.

But the blow never came. Brian jumped up off of him and let him free. Something had to be wrong. Justin slowly opened his eyes and looked up and saw a pair of blue eyes that he had grown to know. "Josh?" Justin whispered.

JC was standing next to him with pure anger in his eyes and body language. "Justin, you ok?"

Justin sat up a little to see what was going on better. What he saw was shocking. Brian was kneeling against the wall holding his mouth that looked like it was starting to bleed. He looked back at his best friend and said, "Yeah! I'm alright. Justin get him out of here."

JC moved over to Brian, grabbed him by his shirt collar and pulled him up to his feet. "You heard the man, it's time for you to go." And threw Brian towards the door. "Don't worry Justin I will make sure he gets out of here."

"Thank you," was all Justin could say at the moment.

JC got Brian out of the room and Justin laid back down on his back, put his hands over his face and said, `Thank God!'


JC drug Brian to the front door and swung it open. "This will be the last time you ever lay a hand on Justin ever again," JC hissed at Brian

"Wait a minute. You don't understand. It's not what it looked like," Brian pleaded with JC.

"Oh! I'm sorry. You must have been helping him up, not hold him down telling him you were going to beat the shit out of him," JC said sarcastically, as he threw Brian out the front door.

"Look! JC?" Brian started but was cut off by the man who had just manhandled him like he was a little boy. (JC was stronger then he looked.)

"No, you look. Justin told me that you had been doing this, but I was the idiot and didn't believe him. But now that I have seen it for myself, I know that not only was I a fool for not believing him, but for thinking that you could never do something like that. Well you know what Brian? It will never happen again. I will never let anyone hurt Justin again. And as for you?" JC said pointing at Justin's attacker.

Brian huffed with a smug smirk on his face. "Well I'm not the only one you better protect him from."

"What is that? A threat?" JC asked stepping closer to Brian.

"More like a warning. You can't be around him all the time," Brian hissed.

"Maybe not but now at least Justin has someone who loves him and will help me protect him," JC said with confidence.

Brian laughed. "Do you mean that bitch Donny? Hell, he's the one you have to protect Justin from."

"What? You don't know what you're talking about. Donny had never hit Justin."

"Oh he hit him alright. But not with his hand. But with his check book," Brian told JC who was standing there with a shocked look on his face. "That's right. Donny is using Justin for his money."

"Shut the fuck up. Donny would never do that. And why would he? He is making his own money."

"Think about it. For over a year Donny has been staying in a hotel while the rest over them either stayed with Lou or Jonny or even got there own places. Not only that but he's buying BMW's, jewelry, clothes. And we both know that they haven't gotten paid yet. So where is all this money coming from, huh?" He had him and he knew it. He knew that with that little info he got on Donny would come in handy. Someone was still looking into it but the info he had did what he wanted it to do. Cast doubt.

"Just get to steppin' Brian. And don't come back with out being invited, which will happen when hell freezes over," JC told him with a little less force as before.

Once Brian was gone JC closed the door and stood there in the hall. He thought, `Could that be true? Could Donny be using Justin?' But his thoughts were interrupted as Justin came in to the room. "Justin, you okay?"

"Yeah. Thanks to you. Thank you so much Josh," Justin said and he made his way over to his friend and pulled him into a hug.

JC responded by putting his arms around his friend. "Justin I am so sorry. This is all my fault," JC told him and he held Justin tight.

But Justin pulled away and looked his friend in the eye, "How is this your fault? It's not like you knew he was coming over here. Did you?"

"No! But if I had believed you in the first place maybe I could have..." JC started but was cut off by Justin.

"You could have done just what you did. And I thank you so much," said Justin as he pulled JC into another hug.

They pulled apart and JC looked at the bruise that was forming on Justin's face. "We need to take care of that," he said as he pulled Justin into the kitchen. He sat Justin down and went to the refrigerator and took out some ice to put on Justin's face. "I thought you said he never hit you in the face before?"

"He didn't. But I guess he had nothing to loose this time."

"I guess. I'm just glad I got here when I did."

"Me too. Thank you so much," said Justin again. He hissed in pain as JC put the ice pack on his face.

"Look Justin. Why don't you go up stairs? Run you a nice hot bath and soak for a while. When Donny and them get here I will have him come get you, ok?" JC said as he stood in front of Justin.

"Sure that sounds nice." Justin said as he stood and headed for the kitchen door. But he stopped and turned to JC and said, "Just, let me tell him, ok? I don't want him all upset and going out to look for Brian. Maybe if I tell him I can calm him down."

JC nodded and turned around. For the first time, he looked around the room and saw all the flours. "Hey Justin?" He called after his best friend.


"Where did all these flours come from?"

"Donny!" replied Justin as he made his way upstairs.

JC looked around again. And what he saw was amazing. Not only were they all beautiful but also expensive. He saw the gold roses and knew that they coast a bundle. "There has to be a reason he can do all this. And I'm going to find out what it is," JC said out loud.


Well that's that's it. The latest chapter. Tell me what you think. If you liked it hated it. Something. Cause if no one is reading there is no reason for me to continue. I know it takes me forever to finish a chapter but that's because I think no one is reading. Then I get an email or an IM from someone asking me if and when I am going to update. Well if some of you just at least email and say you like and want more then I will help me write faster.

So until then????
