Claude and I stood there silently by his bedside watching him breath. I think he sensed someone was there as he slowly opened his eyes half way.

"My angels appear," he said quietly. And a weak smile appeared.

"Papa, I bet you're half way through preparing a great meal. I guess I sort of ruined that..."

I looked at Claude who had tears rolling down his cheeks.

"No problem, my son, I love you."

"I love you too papa. Please don't cry. Alex, you and the boys stay with papa tonight, tell Ian to read him the rabbit story he wrote. Okay?"


"Alex, I'm really sorry, but sex is off for tonight." He smiled. He stared to laugh, winced in pain.

I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time, "Hey, we'll have plenty of time for that. In the mean time I'll just have to dream about it."

"I'm sure you can keep it in hand!" He winced in pain suppressing a giggle; "Laughing is definitely not the thing to do. Alex, can you hold my hand so I can go to sleep - I'm really tired. I love you so much, for a bit there I thought I was going to loose you and papa."

I took his hand and told him I love him. Within a few moments he was asleep.

That evening we all, except for Jason, helped Papa Claude with the meal. You could tell he enjoyed having us all there.

After dinner Ian started reading his story. I heard about two minutes of it before dozing off. The next thing I knew Papa Claude was gently shaking me.

"Oh, I'm sorry, I must have dozed off," I said sleepily. I looked around to find that I was the only one in the room besides Papa Claude. "Where is everyone?"

"They went home. I told them I'd have you sleep in Jason's bed, after all I think it will be your bed too." He gave me a fatherly smile.

"Claude, I can see why he loves you so much."

"And I can see why he loves you so much. Come I'll show you his, uh, your room."

Compared to my hotel room this room is a palace! A large room, I would guess 20 by 15 with high ceilings, there was a walk-in closet that was as big as my hotel room! Entering the room put me in mind of entering a room a hundred years ago. It was spotlessly clean.

Claude sat down in a winged-back chair in front of a fireless fireplace, I sat down opposite him in a similar chair.

"You like?" he asked with a smile.


"Alex, today has been a very stressful day for me, I realized that I tended to take Jason for granted, in away. Almost losing him brought me back to reality that we often take things for granted.

"I have, but twenty years left if I am lucky. When I lived with Michael we never thought about death or that we'd ever loose each other we never realize how precious each moment was.

"I love Jason I want him to always be a part of my life, and because you are the major part of his life I want you to be a part of my life too. I do love you very much and I can really understand his love for you. When he gets out of the hospital, a hotel room is not the place to live."

"I guess what I am saying is I want you both to live here with me, to be a part of my life. You'll have your freedom, I'm not going to smoother you two. My only rules are no drugs and no very wild parties."

I got up and walked over to him and sat down on the arm of his chair, leaned over and gave him a kiss on his forehead.

"Well, I will have to confirm all this with Jason, but I'm sure he wants to be a part of your life too!"

He gave me a little hug and I returned to my chair.

"Are you tired?" he asked.

"No, that nap did me good. Why?"

"Because I know nothing about you and I would like to know everything!"

It was four o'clock before we retired. We had talked about my life and I learned about his life.

I woke to the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I looked at my watch it was early noon. I got up and put on my trousers and then headed for the kitchen.

Claude was sitting at the kitchen table in his boxers drinking coffee and reading a book.

"Good Morning, did you sleep well?" he smiled.

"Yes, thank you. Have you heard anything from the hospital?"

"Oh, yes, I called and they have moved him to the general ward, he is doing fine. They say he is doing remarkably well, and might be able to come home tomorrow. Of course he will have to take things easy for a while. Anyway, I'm taking off from work for a week. I deserve it!"

"I was thinking of doing the same thing, but it means I'd have to give up my vacation time. I was wanting spend it with Jason maybe in Lyon, or Marseilles sort of like a honeymoon."

"Well, I think you should go to work and in a couple of weeks when Jason is all healed, you both have fun and romance on your honeymoon. Spending your honeymoon looking after your boyfriend is not my idea of romantic and I am sure Jason would agree!" he laughed.

"Yes, you're right and we'd probably drive him crazy waiting on him hand and foot!"

So, it was settled and two days later he brought Jason home.

I rushed home that day. The apartment was quite as I entered. I checked the kitchen, living room and finally my, or rather our room. There they were Jason in one chair and Claude in the other both silently gazing at a chessboard.

Jason looked up, "Alex! Come give me a kiss! Oh, yeah," he said as he moved his queen, "checkmate!"

I gave Jason a quick kiss on the lips.

"Hey! I haven't really kissed you for like forever and that's all I get?"

I blushed.

Claude laughed.

"I don't want to hurt you."

"Alex, I'm not make out of glass, beside if you hurt me I'll definitely let you know! Now give me a kiss!'
I complied. It was one of those kisses that starts off gentle, but becomes more and more passionate. When it finally ended.

I noticed Claude had left.

"More! I need more!" Jason said quietly.

We kissed again. This time longer, but my back was killing me because he was seated and I was standing.

"I love you, now stand straight up because I know your back must be killing you!" I compiled "And besides I need to check something," he said with a smile.


He reached out with his hand and placed it firmly on my crotch. I was hard as a rock.

"Good! I see yours is still in fine shape!"

I blushed. He smiled.

I leaned forward and kissed him again while placing my hand on his crotch. He was rock hard too. I gently my hand up and down on his hard member while our kiss got more passionate.

"Ehmm" came a noise from behind me.

We both practically jumped to attention. And both blushed.

"Sorry to interrupt, but it's time to eat," Claude smiled then added, "food that is. Alex you can turn around. You have nothing I haven't seen before!" He chuckled.

I blushed again as I turned around.

"Yes, I can definitely see why Jason is attracted to you!"

He laughed.

I blushed.

"And yes, Alex," he said, "I can see why Jason is very attracted to you too!"

Jason blushed.

I saw Jason wince in pain as he stood up slowly.

"You okay?"

"Yeah, just don't get me laughing or I really will die laughing"

After dinner we adjourned to the living room where Claude served us coffee.

"Boys, there is something I wish to talk o you about. I think you need to take it easy for just a short while until Jason's body has time to heal. And Jason getting your partner all aroused is pure cruelty when you cannot carry through. I saw you in pain when you came to dinner. Now as your guardian, do I have to have you two in separate rooms or can you control yourselves?"

"I'll control myself," I said.

"Me too," answered Jason, "But only until I'm heal. Then watch out!" he laughed.

Claude chuckled.

"Good! Well, I've been thinking and I need a new assistant. Alex I'd like you to come work as my assistant, the pay is more than what you are getting now."

"Claude, I'm honored, but I know nothing about your business. I think I would be a bigger burden than a help."

"You can learn and my present assistant is leaving in a six weeks, he's going to the U.S. to work with our U.S. office."

We discussed it some more and I decided to accept his offer.

"Finally, I know you two plan to take vows, Jason you should be well enough in a week, provided you do as the doctor instructed, and I think that that when you should takes your vows. Then the two of you can go to Saint Maritz for your honeymoon, my treat! Please don't say no because I have already made the arrangements."

I jumped up and gave Claude a hug and a kiss on the on the cheek.

"Papa your are the best!" I said.

He smiled and gave me a kiss on the cheek in return.

"I love you two so much!"
