"Jon baby! God I missed you!"

Jared had just gotten off the plane, returning from yet another trip to Paris for some modelling and a fashion show. His career had exploded since he started working on the Seaquest movie, which was due out to theatres in less than a month. Jon, who had been receiving critical acclaim for his new role on E.R. was there waiting for him. They had seen very little of each other over the past 7 months, and now that Jared's schedule was going to keep him in L.A. for the next few weeks, the couple were going to take full advantage of it.

Jon ran up to Jared and gave him a big hug. They were not the least bit worried about making a scene in public. Their relationship had become old news a few months after they were reunited publicly on the Tonight Show. Well, except to the tourists. They seemed to be a favorite with the tourists.


"Oops, sorry Jon." Jared pulled away from him and took his carry on from his shoulder, then went back to the hug that was interrupted.

"How was the flight?"

"Too fucking long."

"Jared, easy on the language. We're in public here ya know." Jon released Jared from the hug and waved an arm around the airport terminal. There were people with cameras of all sorts taking pictures of them as well as those standing just at a distance waiting for an autograph. All of them were trying not to look too conspicuous: fat chance.

"Yeah whatever. I'm just really tired right now. I've barely slept in the last three days. I was called back for re-shoots three times while I was doing interviews for the movie and trying to pack to get home."

"Ouch, sounds nasty. Let's get your bags and get out of here."

"Sounds good to - "

"Uh, excuse me. Guys?"

Jon looked behind him and didn't see anyone. He happened to glance down and noticed a young boy of about 11 years old, holding an autograph book and pen. He had spiked, black hair and bright blue eyes.

"Hey there young fella, looking for an autograph I take it?"

He smiled. "Yes please."

Jon got down on his knees beside him. "Sure thing, what's your name?"


Jon smiled at him. "OK Joey, we'll both give you an autograph, what do you say to that?"

"That sounds cool!"

Jon took the book and pen and flipped through the pages. "Wow, you've got some really big names in here. De Niro, Pacino, Dicaprio, Diaz, Gibson, Hanks. You a big movie fan?"

"You bet! I wanna be an actor when I get older."

Jared went down beside Jon and Joey, groaning as he did. "Sounds like a plan there little man. But I gotta tell ya, it's a lot of hard work. You willing to put in the long hours on stage, rehearsing, learning lines, doing interviews, photo shoots, and all that?"

"Yes sir! I want to be just like you Mr. Jared." Jon smiled and quickly signed the autograph book.

"There are days I don't want to be me," said Jared under his breath. Jon elbowed him and gave him a hard look before handing him the book and pen.

When Joey happily skipped back to his smiling mother everyone else moved in, almost as if on cue. Jon and Jared ended up signing a lot more autographs than either had initially intended. As time went on though, Jon noticed that Jared's outward appearance was undergoing some very unflattering changes. His practiced actor's smile slowly faded, he stopped making eye contacted and conversation, and he wasn't talking to anyone like when they started. Unfortunately, there was nothing he could say since they were surrounded by people.

He decided to let it go and mention it when they finally managed to get away. Then he noticed that Jared's hands were starting to shake. Jon looked at Jared's face and noticed the dark circles under his eyes that he couldn't remember being there when he got off the plane. Jon knew he had to do something that he had never done before.

"OK everyone. I'm really sorry but we have to get going. We're both supposed to do an interview in less than an hour so we really do need to get a move on. Thanks for stopping to see us though, and I hope we see you all again sometime." Jon hated having to lie, but there was not much else he could do, and he had to get Jared out of there.

There were a few moans, but the crowd was very understanding and stepped aside so that the couple could head to the baggage claim to pick up Jared's stuff.

"Can you grab my stuff sweetie, I need to run to the washroom for a second."

"Sure thing babe."

"Thanks." Jared ran off towards the washroom while Jon went to retrieve the luggage.


Jared found an empty stall, stepped inside and locked the door behind him. He put the toiletseat cover down and sat on it, pulling his carry on into his lap. With still shaking hands he rummaged through the bag until he found what he was looking for.

He quickly pulled a small bottled out of the bag and popped the top. Holding his left hand palm up, he poured from the bottle two small pills and quickly downed them.

After securing the top on the bottle and placing it back in his shoulder bag, Jared stepped out of the stall, fixed his hair and walked out of the washroom to meet Jon. He looked quickly at his watch. Another ten minutes or so and I'll be feeling just fine, he though to himself.

When they stepped out of the taxi in front of their house, Jared hopped out and quickly grabbed his luggage. Jon stood back, simply looking at him. Jared meanwhile paid the driver and headed for the front door of the house, moving as if his ass was on fire.

"Well come on Jon, you're the one with the key, get up here."

Jon shook his head and walked up to the front door. Jared wasted no time once the door was unlocked. He tossed his suitcases inside and pulled Jon in with him. Before the door was closed Jared had his lips to Jon's and his hands roaming all over his boyfriend's body.

"Whoa there big boy," said Jon pulling away. "Where'd all this energy come from all of a sudden?"

"I dunno, but it's here."

"I can see that," chuckled Jon, "but it's such a huge turn around from the airport. You were that tired you were shaking and - "

"Hey, babe, let it go. I've got plenty of energy now and I haven't seen you in two weeks: I want to use some of that energy for something a little more fun than talking. We can do plenty of that later."

"Hmmm, sounds good to me," mumbled Jared between kisses. Little bit of a turn around here, he thought to himself. Can I really be turning him on that much?

Almost as if in answer to his question, Jon felt something pushing firmly against his inner thigh.

Yeah. Yeah, I guess I can.

"Now get that cute ass of yours upstairs. I'll be up in a minute, I just need to check in with my agent real quick."

"OK, but you better not keep me waiting too long."

"Don't you worry sweetie. You won't be waiting long at all." Jared looked at Jon with an intense lust in his eyes that made Jon's heart skip a beat. He smiled widely in return and ran up the stairs.

Once he rounded the corner Jared reached for his shoulder bag and quickly took out the small bottle again. He removed the cap and shook two more pills onto his palm.

"I'm gonna want your help now boys. I gotta man to please: don't let me down."

I am Scoop, hear me type. Thanks again to Lucas for a kickass story idea that I will be developing more in the future. In the meantime...
