"Hey, you're up!" He said softly with a sweet smile.
I smiled in return. After last night's events I was overly relieved that he was still here, leaning against the door with his messy, brown bed hair. It was such a relief to see him smiling at me. I was feeling like crap and all I wanted was for him to hold me together in one piece with his big arms.
"So what happened last night? You were on the bathroom floor when I came to up to check on you.." He continued.
"Really? I must've been really tired or something."
"Oh, well I moved you to the bed. Did you sleep well?"
"Thanks, yeah I did but I have this really bad headache right now." I said, holding my head.
"Do you want to get some more rest?" He asked, walking over to me.
"No, I'm good!" He stood in front of me and put his hands on my waist. We were making direct eye contact which felt so refreshing. Looking into his sharp eyes helped me relax a little.
"Actually, we need to talk..." I began.
"Last night." I told him, he looked down and then back up at me.
"OK, sure." He said with a smile. "Sit down."
I sat up against my pillow and he jumped onto the bed beside me, just like our first morning together. I took a few deep breaths thinking about what I wanted to say. There were a few moments of awkward silence, but I knew there were more important matters that had to be discussed so I went ahead and broke the ice.
"I hope you're not mad at me Zac."
"Of course not, why would I be?" He said, maintaining the softness in his voice.
"Well considering how last night ended. I-"
"I get a little short tempered sometimes and say things I shouldn't say. But I wouldn't get mad at you over something like that." Zac held my hand tightly.
"I just, really don't want to disappoint you Zac. And if sex is going to make things awkward between us then maybe we're not ready? I just want to be with you right now." My voice started to shake from the mixed emotions. It was too early in the morning for this!
We looked into each other's eyes for a few seconds, he had a look of agreement on his face which reassured me.
"If you want to wait until we're ready, then I will wait with you. Just let me know when it's time." He kissed me on the cheek.
"We shouldn't give it up completely. But maybe take things slower on that note?"
"Ofcourse." said Zac.
I shuffled over until I was on top of him, face to face, and we began to kiss. They weren't hard kisses, instead they were slow, detailed and as delicate as the touch of his hands moving down my back. I had goosebumps all over my body. It was moments like these which mean alot to me, with the morning sun lighting up the room, and the whole world seems to stand still and silent as you give in to someone's affection. Not just anyone though, someone special. We rolled over once until he was on top of me, his legs intertwined with mine, his whole body warming against me and his arms ensuring that I didn't escape. I was surprised by his gentle affection, as if I had successfully unlocked a more sensitive and passionate side of Zac.
I moved on top and brought my face close to his. His smile was captivating, natural and he looked incredibly handsome with his 5 o'clock shadow and messy hair. I was having a hard time expressing how I truly felt at that moment, there isn't a single word which could describe it, only the long, passionate kiss which followed. My headache had dissolved, instead I was feeling calm and airy as Zac moved his hands all over my body, touching me in places for the first time.
"You have the cutest lips, Adam." He told me, kissing them softly. "I haven't felt this way in a very long time. I simply can't find the right words to express how much you mean to me already! The thought of waking up to a day without you kind of scares me.. Does that sound too pushy?"
"No way! That's exactly how I feel, and you have no idea how glad I am to hear you say that." I told him.
Somebody knocked on the front door.
"Crap!" Zac hopped off the bed and made his way down to answer it. He'd only been gone for a few seconds but my body was already beginning to lose warmth. I heard a muffled conversation and shortly afterwards he came running back upstairs into the bedroom.
"You answered the door half naked?" I asked him.
"Yeah - I don't mind!"
"But I thought you were exclusive to me?" I said jokingly as he crawled back on top of me. I ran both my hands over his pecs and down to his stomach.
"It's all yours, I promise!" He leant down and we locked lips.
"So who was that at the door?" I said pulling away from the kiss.
"Oh yeah, it was from the hotel. They said we left something behind." He took out my phone from his back pocket and handed it to me.
"I didn't realise I had left it there.." I said, although I knew exactly why I had abandoned it.
"Nevermind! Hey by the way, a couple of my friends are coming over tonight. I can't wait to tell everyone about you!" He sounded excited.
"Do they know that you're ..out?" I asked him.
"Oh, yeah, no worries!"
"Can't wait!" I smiled and kissed him on the cheek.
"I'm gonna fix us some breakfast downstairs, meet me in 10, okay?" He smiled and grabbed a t-shirt from the side. Pulling it over his head, he turned around and walked out.
I was fairly nervous about meeting Zac's friends tonight but that was the least of my worries. I looked down at the phone. The curiosity was killing me. I wondered if Tommy was still messaging me.
After our chat in the bed followed by breakfast it was already late afternoon. Zac's friends would be here soon so he went out to get some drinks. While he was out I spent the time getting ready, taking a shower, putting on my best clothes and a smile to match. A car pulled up in front of the house but it wasn't Zac's. A guy stepped out and walked up towards the door and knocked. I waited a few seconds and then answered it.
"Hey." I said.
"Hey, I'm a friend of Zac's. Is he here?"
"He's gone to get some drinks but he'll be back soon, come in!" I stepped back to let him in. He was dressed in smart attire, as if he'd just left work.
"I'm Jesse." He smiled at me with his friendly hazel eyes. It was an incredibly cute smile which led me to check him out thoroughly. He was just a little smaller than Zac but still bigger than me, somewhere inbetween. His hair was a mousy brown, fairly messy, but a good messy.
"I'm Adam, Zac's friend. Did you come alone?" I asked him.
"Nice to meet you Adam. Yeah, but there should be more people arriving soon!" He pulled back his sleeve and looked at his watch, revealing his tantalizingly big hands.
"Take a seat. Would you like something to drink?" I asked to keep the conversation rolling.
"Yeah, sure, could I get some water please?" He smiled and the dimples in his cheeks appeared.
I walked into the kitchen and poured him a glass of water, taking a few seconds to pick up the courage to go back in. As I re-entered the room he was standing by the coat hanger, removing his jacket and putting it aside, now only wearing a thin white shirt. I was almost hallucinating the image of his body underneath.
"Here you go." I walked over to him and handed him the glass of water. He downed the whole glass in one gulp and handed it back to me.
"So, what do you do for a living?" I asked him as we both sat down.
"I'm a movie director and a part-time producer."
"Wow, that's so cool! What kind of movies?"
"Eh.. just short movies, documentaries and others stuff." He vaguely told me.
"So how do you know Zac?" I continued to ask him.
"Oh we met through some mutual friends not long ago. He's such a great guy and easy to get along with! We've been hanging out a lot since then. How about you?"
"Well, we haven't known each other for long-" I began telling him, before the conversation was cut short by Zac and a few friends who had just arrived.
"Hey! What's up Zac!" Jesse stood up to greet him. A few more of his friends followed him in, most of them were guys but two of them were girls. Really pretty girls! I kind of disappeared into the background for a second whilst everybody said hello and then all the attention diverted to me.
"Guys I'd like you to meet my.. good friend, Adam." Zac introduced me and I greeted them all swiftly. The girls were incredibly friendly which helped me ease up in front of all these strange faces.
"I'll get the drinks. Make yourselves at home!" He continued and everyone began to take seats and start conversation.
It wasn't long before they all settled down and I found myself sitting in a small circle with Jesse and two of the girls. I told them all about how Zac and I met and my very eventful trip from London to LA. They seemed fascinated but it was Jesse who couldn't stop staring at me. As they were passing one another their drinks, Jesse accidentally dropped his cup, which ended up all over my lap.
"Wow! That is cold!" I gasped as the liquid seeped through my underwear.
"I am SO sorry!" said Jesse.
"I'm good, I'll go get this cleaned up!" I said. This was becoming too awkward and I wanted to leave the room! I excused myself and hurried into the kitchen to find a towel. I began drying my leg when Jesse followed me into the room.
"Hey, do you need any help with that? I am so sorry man!" He asked.
"I'm good, it's almost dry." I smiled back at him. I expected him to go back to the living room but he stayed and walked over to the counter.
"I hope you don't mind me asking, but are you and Zac.. dating?" He asked nervously, wasting no time.
"Uh, well I guess so? Nothing's been made official." I truly didn't know how to answer that.
"Wait, how did you know?" I continued to ask him.
"Oh, he told me he met this incredibly cute British guy not long ago. I kinda figured it was you!" He said.
"Thanks. I guess." I said shyly.
"He didn't introduce you as his boyfriend back then. So I was just wondering?"
"Well, honestly, he's never called me his boyfriend." I told Jesse.
"That kinda sucks!"
"Meh, I don't mind. I think I'll talk to him about it tonight. Is that a good idea?"
"Sure, the sooner you find out, the better! Right?" said Jesse with a forced smile.
"True. So tell me about yourself, are you seeing anybody?" I asked him.
"Me? Haha! I've been single for quite a while now. I guess nobody's wants me!"
"Well, I find that hard to believe!" We both looked at each other but quickly looked away. I continued to dry myself and he remained silent, standing on the other side of the counter. The sound from the living room became muffled and the silence was piercing.
"Come, let's go back in." He smiled at me and led the way back into the living room.
I spent the rest of the evening avoiding contact with Jesse but caught him looking at me several times. I can't say I wasn't guilty of the same crime, I just couldn't help it. Soon enough, I guess we both just forgot about what had happened as it totally skipped my mind. As the clock struck 10 P.M, Zac's friends began to leave one by one. Ironically, the last one to leave was Jesse.
"I'll see you around Zac. Thanks for inviting me over tonight!" He said, heading for the door.
"Thank you, for coming! I'll probably see you at the studio sometime, maybe we can catch up?" said Zac.
"Hey I need to use the bathroom, Adam could you see him to the door?" He hurriedly made his way upstairs and left me all alone with Jesse.
"It was nice meeting you Adam." said Jesse, standing on the doorstep.
"Likewise!" I smiled back.
"If you ever want to hang out or if you need anything just get in touch." He said, handing me a business card.
"Thanks.. I'll keep in touch!" The mixed signals he was giving were confusing me.
"So, I'll see you around.." Jesse moved forward to hug me and I did the same. It was only a friendly hug which lasted two seconds, but then as we both let go, he hesitantly kissed me on the cheek and left.
After slamming the bedroom door shut, he pushed me up against it, with his mouth pressed against mine. Zac's hands had a firm grip on my body while he confidently invaded my mouth with his tongue. I loved spoiling him like this, and so I let him freely roam my body as he pleased.
"I've waited all day for this. This is the first night we're going to spend sleeping together. And for that, I want to make you feel extra special Adam." He told me. Zac then proceeded to guide me onto the bed.
I stripped down to my shorts and got comfortable on the bed as he walked to the other side of the bed, kicked off his shoes and socks then jumped in with me.
"How's this?" He asked.
"Hmmm.. one second." I responded. I reached over and unbuttoned a few of the buttons on his shirt to reveal his ripped chest.
"There, much better!"
Zac smiled and pulled me in for a kiss. I shuffled over until I was laying absolutely beside him and he put his arm over me. Laying my head on his chest, I inhaled the manly musk, eventually becoming synchronized with his breathing pattern. I could lay here forever because it kept me in a peaceful state of mind, as if nothing could hurt me again or atleast try to. I think I'm in love with Zac, I thought to myself.
"This is really nice." said Zac as he played with my fingers.
"I have a question Zac."
"Are we officially dating? I'm not sure where we are right now." I told him.
"As in boyfriends? Yeah, I consider us boyfriends."
"Then why'd you introduce me as a 'good friend' to your friends?"
"I dunno, I didn't occur to me that we're actually in a relationship now. I've been single for a while." He said lifting my chin up to look at me.
"You don't need to apologize! I was just asking to make sure I know where we stand."
"Maybe I should ask you, you know, to make it official?" He suggested.
"I guess so?"
"Adam, would you be my, incredibly cute, boyfriend?" He asked.
"That was so cheesy!" I laughed as he sat up and pulled me onto him until I was straddling facing him.
"Oh come on! Was that a yes or a no?" He smiled as I put my arms around his neck.
"I don't know.. I'll have to think about it Zac."
He tore open the rest of the shirt as the buttons flew off and discarded it, showing off his perfectly toned body.
"Still need to think about it?" He grinned.
"Okay you win. I'm all yours!" I moved my face closer to his and slowly kissed him.
As I moved off him to lay beside him again, I noticed the large bulge in his jeans. I moved my hand down there and grabbed it.
"Adam wait! We can't do this!" He said.
"We have to start from somewhere Zac. Just a handjob, promise?"
He closed his eyes and laid his head back which I took as a greenlight. I shuffled further down, laying on my stomach between his legs, directly in front of his crotch. Tugging on the zipper of his jeans, I slowly pulled out his cock which was already raging hard. I stroked on it a few times until a stream of pre-cum began to drizzle down the head, but it wasn't enough. So I spat on it twice, then began massaging the big cock in it's entirety, from the base right up to the head keeping a tight grip with my fingers and rubbing the swollen head with my thumb.
The more I played with his cock, the lesser the friction became so I had to work extra hard by jerking him off up and down, increasing my pace and rotating my grip left and right. I looked up at Zac who was now panting with excitement and sweating on his chest. I pulled out his balls with one hand and let them hang under his towering cock. By now I was jacking him off with both hands to cover the full length. The head was leaking and sticky, the cock was pulsating and warm from the beating and he was unable to keep his legs still.
"Does that feel good?" I asked him, letting go of his cock altogether.
"Yes! Please don't stop Adam!" He begged me. I had no intention of doing so, instead I continued to jerk him off even harder. I temporarily moved one of my hands down and played with his balls.
His left leg twitched and he began to slowly thrust his hips up in motion to my handjob. The amount of pre-cum leaking was ridiculous and my hands were slipping yet I kept a firm grip on his rock hard cock.
"Fuck!" He whispered as he suddenly froze and pumped a hot load of cum all over my hands. I continued stroking which caused more cum spilled from his cock onto my hands and the rest leaked down to his balls and dripping onto the bed.
"Damn!" I exclaimed at the amount of cum I'd milked from his cock.
"Wow I really needed that!" He let out a weak laugh and took a deep breath. I sat up with my hands drenched and dripping everywhere.
"Okay I really need to get this cleaned up Zac!"
"Come! We're taking a shower!" He springed off the bed and picked me up in his arms, carrying me into the bathroom.
I stood under the shower and embraced the steamy hot water. Not only that but I had the world's hottest boyfriend right behind me applying soap to my back. After I returned the favour he spent an extra ten minutes or so holding me in his arms. It was a silent ten minutes yet so much was said. I could stand here forever. Eventually Zac reached over and turned off the shower.
"Let's get you dried up." He grabbed two towels, handing one to me and began drying himself with the other. After we were done we stepped out of the steam which felt incredibly refreshing and stood in front of the mirror.
"I love you Adam." said Zac. He was standing behind me, hands around me, whispering into my ear. We both looked into our reflection in the mirror and I couldn't help but notice what a perfect couple we made. Those 4 four words just echoed inside my head and what had only happened for a second seemed like minutes.
"I love you too." I said as he kissed my neck and rested his chin on my shoulder.
"I never want to lose you." He said. There was a softness to his voice, a tone which would be hard to hear in any other circumstance but in this case his voice was crystal clear. Everything seemed clear now.
I turned around and hugged him immediately. The feeling of our bare torsos warming against one another was surreal. I had never shared this kind of affection with anyone in my life and never would I have expected it. Due to being tired and falling head over heels, my eyes began welling up with happiness. I blinked furiously to make the tears disappear.
"Wanna call it a night?" He asked me as we broke off the hug.
"Yeah I'm really tired. I'm just going to get dressed." I smiled at him. He grabbed a pair of sweatpants and walked into the bedroom.
Dropping the towel to the floor, I put on a pair of boxer briefs, slipped on one of Zac's tshirts and followed him into the bedroom. He was laying on the bed with his hands behind his head, chest bare and feet crossed. He smiled gracefully when he saw me.
"Come lie down."
I crawled onto the bed beside him and she shuffled closer until we were spooning. He put one of his arms over me and slowly placed his hand on mine. I became starstruck for another moment as reality hit me like a bus. Laying here in Zac Efron's arms after he officially called me his own and told me that he loved me. If this is what floating on a cloud feels like then I damn well love it.
"Goodnight." He replied.
With the touch of his breath on my neck, his arm holding me close and his feet brushing again mine, I closed my eyes and fell into a slumber until the next morning.
