Here it is everyone, the long awaited sequel to Allen. First I would like to humbly thank everyone who made Allen such a huge success for me. I would never have continued writing without you wonderful people, especially with all the gnomes and aliens I had to battle in the course of writing Allen. You readers have made it well worth it. I want everyone to know that I have a lot of good things planned for Allen, Rusty, Calvin, Ricky, and Chris.

Allen 2: Summer Of Love - by tim

Part 1

The week following Jimmy's death was hard on everyone, especially Chris. Judith had volunteered her time as a grief counselor at the school for any kid who needed it. Allen and Rusty dragged Chris in to see Allen's mom because Chris was refusing to finish out the last week of school.

"Okay Chris," said Judith, "why don't you tell me why you don't want to finish your last week of school."

"Because it's not fair." said Chris. "Why did Jimmy have to die? He never did anything bad to anyone, that's why I loved him so much. I loved Jimmy so much that it hurt, but now he's gone and it hurts a thousand times worse."

"I do know how you feel Chris." said Judith. "I lost a brother in law that I cared for very much, and I almost lost my only son twice. I do know that although it doesn't seem like it right now, things will get better. You're a very sweet boy, and you have friends that will do whatever they can to help you."

"That won't bring Jimmy back though." said Chris. "I almost wish I had been in that car with him." Chris began bawling, so Judith held the distressed boy in her arms.

"Chris, you know that wouldn't have changed anything." said Judith. "I know how much you miss Jimmy, and you're right that it's not fair. I hope and pray that nothing ever happens to Rusty so Allen will never have to feel what you're feeling right now, but if it did Allen would have to find a way to go on just like you need to. I know Rusty and Allen care about you very much, they've both said they'll do anything to help you. I want to help you too, so whenever you want to talk, cry, or be held, just come to any of us. We're your friends and as long as you have friends, you'll always have someone to turn to when you need it. I know you'll always miss Jimmy and that will never completely go away, but your true friends will help you to deal with this."

Chris hugged Judith tightly as he cried for his lost friend. When she got a chance, Judith called Chris's parents and asked if it would be okay for Chris to spend the night with Allen and Rusty. When they said it was okay she then called Allen to the counselor's office and explained to him that Chris was in desperate need to be with friends tonight. Allen said that it wouldn't be any problem at all with he and Rusty.

Meanwhile, Calvin and Ricky were busy planning their honeymoon. Although they were in a very somber mood after seeing someone they knew getting killed, Calvin still wanted to take his husband on a proper honeymoon. The biggest hurdle was to get Ricky's parents to agree so the boys could travel alone. The Mackenzie's weren't very happy about the commitment ceremony, and even less happy about Ricky and Calvin going off on a honeymoon. Tom finally convinced them though how serious Ricky and Calvin were about their vows to each other. Ricky's parents finally realized that they didn't want to take a chance on losing their son. With that settled, Calvin and Ricky finally agreed on a seven day cruise of the Caribbean.

That evening Calvin and Ricky decided to visit with Allen and Rusty. Judith let the boys in when they rang the doorbell, and they went straight to Allen and Rusty's room after saying hello.

Calvin and Ricky went into the room and Calvin immediately threw his arms around each of his friends while saying, "Hey dudes, wazzup?" He then noticed that Chris was also in the room so he gave Chris a hug as well and said, "Hey my friend, how are you doing now?"

"I'm doing better now than I was earlier today." said Chris. "It still hurts though."

"I know it does dude." said Calvin. "I went through the same thing when we didn't know if Rusty and Allen were going to pull through."

"I'm glad they did." said Chris. "They've been helping me a lot this week."

"Yeah," said Calvin, "they're the greatest friends a guy could have."

"That's cause we've been friends for like forever." said Rusty.

"Yeah, and I almost fucked it all up this year." replied Calvin. "I'm so glad you dudes are as understanding as you are, cuz I would have hated myself if I had destroyed our friendship."

"Don't worry about that," said Allen, "it'll never happen now."

"I hope I can consider all of you guys my friend now." said Chris.

"We are!" replied all four boys in unison. Then each boy took turns giving Chris a hug and welcoming him into their lives.

Once they were done Ricky asked, "Can I tell them the news now babe?"

"Sure angel," said Calvin, "go right ahead." He then gave Ricky a quick but passionate kiss.

"Come on!" said Allen. "What's the news?"

"Calvin and me are going on a seven day cruise of the Caribbean for our honeymoon." said Ricky.

"You two are so lucky." said Chris.

Calvin looked at Chris for a moment and asked, "You and Jimmy were more than just friends, weren't you?"

"Quite a bit more than friends." said Chris as he began to tear up again.

Calvin put his arm around Chris again and said, "I'm so sorry dude, I didn't realize that."

"It's okay." said Chris. "It's not exactly like we advertised it. Especially not after the way Ricky had been treated by everyone."

"Well," said Calvin, "if anyone ever gives any of you guys any crap about being gay just call out for me. I can talk sense into almost anyone except my real dad." A very weary look passed over Calvin's face briefly after the last four words he had said.

Ricky hugged Calvin and said, "Hey babe, that man didn't have any right to call himself your dad. Tom has always acted like more of a dad to you than he ever did."

Calvin smiled again as he returned Ricky's hug and said, "You're right angel, I have a great dad now."

The five boys continued to talk well into the evening, with everyone continuing to draw Chris into their growing circle of friends. By the time Calvin and Ricky left, Chris had actually began to smile a little bit for the first time since Saturday night. That was a good thing, because tomorrow would be Jimmy's funeral and Chris would certainly need his new best friends then.

When bedtime came Chris said, "I guess I'll go sleep on the couch in the living room."

"No you're not." said Rusty. "There are two beds in this room, and Allen and me only need one."

"I don't want to invade your privacy though." said Chris. "I'd hate to think you guys might not do anything you would normally do because I'm here."

"Dude," said Allen, "we trust you enough that if we want to do anything, it won't be a problem even with you in the room. What we want to do tonight is to help our friend who's having a rough time."

"Thanks." said Chris. "You guys are the best friends anyone could have."

Rusty then came up with the idea of putting the two beds together. Allen and Rusty slept with Chris between them that night so they could hold their friend, and Chris would be able to feel safe and loved while he slept. Both boys gave Chris a kiss on the forehead and then all three boys fell into a peaceful sleep. Chris woke up in the middle of the night though, screaming and crying. He had had a nightmare that he was standing at the scene of the accident, and watched helplessly as Jimmy's car rolled into the signpost. Also in his dream, Joe was laughing as he sped away from the scene.

Allen and Rusty took turns holding their friend until he cried himself out and went back to sleep. The rest of the night passed without any further nightmares. The next morning Judith took Chris to his house so he could get ready for the funeral. A few hours later Chris and his parents stopped by Allen's house to take Allen and Rusty to the funeral. When they got there, it looked as though at least half of the tenth grade had shown up for the funeral service.

After the minister had said a few words, Jimmy's father got up to give the eulogy. "No parent ever wants to have to bury their own son, especially at such a young age. It wouldn't have made it any easier if Jimmy had been a wild, reckless, irresponsible boy. The fact is, he was none of these, he just made a single mistake. In reality Jimmy was a very caring, loving, and trustworthy boy. That fact is attested to by the large number of his friends that are here today. I know a lot of you never spoke to Jimmy on a daily basis, but the fact that you're here today shows that you did care about him, and I'd be willing to bet that he feels very good about that wherever it is that God has taken him to. I am very proud of Jimmy. I'm proud of how I raised him, and proud that he had so many people who cared about him. Jimmy loved everyone and it seems a lot of people felt the same way about him. I would do anything to have my son back now, as would any parent. That is why I hope this never has to be repeated by the parents of any of you young people who are out there today. What Jimmy did was a mistake and I seriously hope that no one who is here today will ever repeat the same mistake that Jimmy made. You young people out there have too much to live for to ever die the way my son did. Also Jimmy still loves all of you and wouldn't want to see what happened to him, happen to any one of you. He will always be a part of this world in some way, and I don't think that anyone who knew him will ever forget him."

After the eulogy Jimmy's father took his seat and broke down. As a matter of fact, there were very few dry eyes in the house at that point. The funeral did have to go on though, so Jimmy's pallbearers took their place. Chris didn't know if he could hold up for this part of the funeral, but he had Rusty in front of him and Allen behind him. On the other side of the casket was Jimmy's older brother John, along with Calvin and Ricky. The casket was loaded into the hearse and the funeral made it's way to the cemetery. Once there Allen and Rusty sat on either side of Chris, who could not hold back any longer. Allen and Rusty comforted their anguished friend all the way through the graveside service. Finally it was over and Chris's parents dropped him, Allen, and Rusty off at Rusty's house.

By this time Emily was almost five months pregnant but when she saw the state that Chris was in, her mothering instincts took over. She took Chris into her arms and comforted him while Allen and Rusty took a chance to get over the stress of the funeral. When they finally came back into the living room, Chris was sound asleep with his head in Emily's lap.

"It's such a shame that any young person should have to go through this." said Emily.

"He'll always have friends to help him through it as long as Allen and me can help it." said Rusty.

"I know that son," said Emily, "and I'm very proud of both of you. Chris needs all the friends he can get right now, and both of you would do anything to fill that need for him. You are both very special boys and I wouldn't change anything about you."

With that Allen and Rusty picked Chris up and carried him to their room.

I'm sorry about opening the sequel with such a tearjerker, but I wanted to get this out of the way so the boys could move on. I promise they will be back to their horny selves in Part 2, but I didn't think it would be appropriate for Part 1. Please send all comments to: .
