Chapter 6: It Really is a Team Sport:
Amanda sat in her room listening to Destiny's Child's "Survivor" as the door to her room opened and Leo came in, a huge grin on his face. As soon as she saw the look on her face she knew what must have happened. Her thoughts turned to the last time he had been that happy, but she knew what that had led to. She wasn't going to let that happen to him again. She knew Justin wouldn't treat him that way, but she was going to make sure of it. Leo turned off the song and walked over to her bed and hugged her, his grin getting wider. "I take it today went well," she stated as he nodded in reply.
"He is so amazing. Thank you for telling me about him. You're the best." His hug became tighter as he addressed Amanda.
As he spoke those words, she couldn't help but smile. "So you two are an item?" she quizzed, knowing the answer already.
"Yep, sure are. I'm so lucky to have a friend like you and a boyfriend like him," he commented, looking out of the window at the stars. "I thought I would never be happy again after Zack, but now I have Justin, I am the happiest I have ever been."
The look on his face was one of complete happiness. He looked and sounded like he had just won the lottery. Amanda couldn't help but feel happy, her best friend, the person she cared about almost as if he were her brother, was happy and that made her happy as well. They had been friends for so long, they knew everything about each other. They were always there for each other. Nothing had ever separated them and nothing could. At one point, Amanda was sure she loved Leo and she was proven right. She did love Leo, but as a brother, not any other way and that's what made their friendship special.
"So, what I want to know is..." She paused for a second, making Leo wonder what she wanted to know. "Did you two kiss and what's he like?" she grinned as the question left her lips.
The look on her face almost made Leo laugh. He wondered if he should tell her or not. He knew it was stupid to hesitate telling her. Of course he would. She was his best friend after all. "We did," he smiled at the memory of his and Justin's lips linked together. "He was amazing, he smelled amazing, he is amazing."
As he answered her question, Amanda remembered this was exactly how he was about Zack. "Leo, are you in love with him? Already?" She could sense that's how he felt, but she didn't dare think it was true. In a way, she hoped it wasn't.
He looked at her seriously. "Amanda, I think I am. It sort of scares me. I've only known him for a day, but I already feel more for him than I ever did for Zack."
Those words made Amanda feel happy for her friend, but she was also worried. She was almost certain that Justin wouldn't do anything to hurt Leo, but she felt the same when she met Zack and then she saw the devastation he caused.
--- Zack's house ---
Tim, Zack and Adam sat around Zack's living room finishing off another round of beers. They had started drinking an hour ago and it was now showing. Tim was having trouble keeping his eyes open. Zack and Adam were talking about this and that, neither of them knowing what the other was saying. As they sat inside the house safe and warm, none of them could tell something wasn't quite right. Outside, the dark figure peered into the house, his eyes settling on Zack and venom filling his voice. "I won't let you be happy again."
The music filled the room as Adam suddenly stopped talking, his mind giving into the drunken slumber that called him. Zack was fighting it as hard as he could, his eyelids trying to sentence his brain to sleep. The fight was in vain and within minutes he was in a coma-like state, his body completely cut off from all feelings. That was the moment the figure had been waiting for. As soon as Zack had fallen asleep the figure slowly and silently climbed through the open window. "You shouldn't have left me. You're mine and always will be."
His venomous voice filled the room. It only took him a few moments to decide what to do. His hate-filled mind came to the perfect punishment, the perfect revenge. He grabbed Zack's limp body. It seemed as if he were dead, but the figure knew it was only the effects of drink. He slowly carried Zack into his bedroom and laid him down on the bed. He then walked slowly back downstairs and slowly lifted Tim up and put him on Zack's bed, stripping him. His eyes almost glowed as he positioned Zack and Tim to make it seem like they had fallen asleep after sex. The figure started to laugh lightly as he turned away from the two men and headed back downstairs and out of the house. His work was done, his revenge had been taken and Zack would lose the one thing he wanted to keep the most, Ricky. That thought made the figure laugh louder, his grin growing.
I felt like I was floating up the stairs and into my room. I was in heaven, my life was finally going my way and I loved it. I felt the softness of the bed beneath me as I lay contemplating why I was so blessed. I must had done something right to get a guy like Leo. As that thought was going through my mind the door to my room opened and Sam came in. A huge smiled formed as she saw me lying on my bed grinning. "So, Justy, how did it go?" she asked, jumping onto the bed next to me.
I sat up and just grinned. "It was amazing, he was amazing."
Her eyebrows lifted in a questioning way as I made that statement. "Justin, you didn't go that far did you?" her voice sounded a little disappointed as she spoke.
It took me a while to realise what she meant. As soon as I did, I was surprised that she thought I would do such a thing. "Of course not, I would never have sex on the first date. Everyone knows that's a third date thing."
She giggled at that and shook her head. "Actually, it's a second date thing, but, oh well, I was never one for waiting."
I couldn't keep it in. As soon as she finished, I started laughing. She gave me her 'comic' look, then started laughing with me.
My relationship with my sister has always been a good one. We have always gone out of our way to make sure the other was OK. If either of us were upset the other would always try and cheer him up. When Sam finally stopped laughing, she rose to her feet and went over to the window. Her attitude changed from joking to serious. Her eyes seemed to cloud over with sorrow as she stared at the moon. "Just, if you love him, keep hold of him, don't let him get away." Her voice was filled with sadness and tears started to flow down her cheeks.
I got to my feet and walked over to her, putting my arms around her, trying to comfort her. I knew what had made her cry. She was thinking about Steve. "You'll find someone better than Steve someday, Sam, You're guaranteed to."
She looked into my eyes, I could tell she was still upset and my words haven't had much of an effect. She put on a smile and hugged me. "Don't let me get you feeling down, Just, you just be happy and go dream about Leo." With that she left the room.
That night I had the best night's sleep I have had in a while. My sleep was filled with dreams of Leo and me together and it was so great to finally have someone. My life was going great at the moment. Everything was going how I wanted it to. I awoke slowly at first till I realised I was going to see Leo today. As soon as his face entered my mind, I jumped to my feet and ran into the bathroom. Normally it takes me a good hour to get changed, but today I was ready and waiting for Tim to come and pick me up.
Today our team was meeting at Amanda's house to celebrate winning and Leo was invited along with some of the other Leopards. I sat in the front room watching MTV, waiting for Tim to arrive. He was already 20 minutes late. My mind wandered as more and more music videos came on. About an hour later, Tim finally turned up. His car pulled up outside and, a few moments later, there was a knock on the door. I ran over to it and opened it, prepared to give Tim a piece of my mind. When I saw his face, my anger subsided and suddenly I was worried. He looked awful and he looked like he had been crying.
"Tim, what's wrong?" I asked, letting him in and guiding him into the front room.
After staring into space for a while, he finally spoke. "I'm not gay," he said and repeated it again.
"We know you're not gay, Tim. What's wrong?" I was worried why the first thing he had said was, "I'm not gay."
"At Zack's last night, we had some drinks to celebrate. Ricky stayed sober and drove most of the others home, Adam and I stayed at Zack's 'cause Ricky's car was full and he didn't wanna do two trips. I got really drunk and I can't remember anything after that except I think I was carried somewhere. Well, this morning, I woke up in Zack's bed naked and he was lying next to me naked with his arm over me. When I saw him, I screamed and he got up. He swears he didn't do anything and was as pissed as I was. But I don't know what to do. I'm not gay, Justin, so why did I have sex with him?"
At that moment, I was filled with anger at Zack for doing this to Ricky and taking advantage of Tim being drunk. I didn't even consider that nothing may have happened. "That bastard, I'm gonna kill him. How could he do that to you and to Ricky?" I screamed as I got to my feet and looked down at Tim. I suddenly realised I was doing the wrong thing, seeking revenge is not the way. I should be helping Tim and comforting him, which is what I did.
After an hour or two of comforting Tim, we headed off to Amanda's house. When we eventually got to the house, Ricky was seated in the corner crying. Sarah was next to him talking to him. As soon as Tim entered the room, everyone stopped talking and laughing. The whole room was quiet, people were looking from Tim to Ricky, everyone knew what was going on and everyone wanted to see what either of them would do. Ricky's eyes met Tim's and he stood up, then started walking over to him. "Tim, why did you do it? Why did you come on to Zack when he was drunk?"
Tim just stared at him. Then the tears started to fall. "I'm not gay," he started repeating over and over. It was tearing him apart.
"Ricky, Tim told me all he knows about what happened last night. He can't remember anything after you left, but he does have the feeling he was carried somewhere."
Ricky stared at me for a minute then at Tim, who was now being held up by me. The next thing took us all by surprise. Ricky leaned over and hugged Tim. "I'm sorry he did that to you, Tim." Ricky's voice was only just above a whisper.
I left Ricky to talk to Tim. They had lots to discuss. "Sarah, have you seen Leo?" I asked, not seeing him anywhere.
"He's upstairs. What's the story's between you two? Are you together?"
I could tell she already knew, but I told her anyway. I was so happy he was mine, I had to tell everyone even if they knew. "Yes, we are."
I quickly ran upstairs, my heart beating faster and faster as I got to the top. I heard Amanda's voice coming from inside the door I knocked on, giving a signal to come in. I stepped into the room and saw Amanda seated on her bed talking to Leo who sat on a chair opposite her. As soon as I saw him, I rushed over to him, throwing my arms around him and giving him the most loving kiss I have ever given. As I pulled back from the kiss, he was smiling. I know it sounds soppy but his smile is the most beautiful thing in the world. Whenever I see it, I always have to smile, no matter what I feel like. "I've missed you," he said gently as he kissed me lightly again.
"Err, guys, it's great you're in love and everything but I don't enjoy seeing my best friend getting it on with his boyfriend." As she finished, I leaned back in and kissed Leo again, causing another groan from Amanda.
As I was about to kiss Leo another time, we heard a commotion downstairs. Then there was the sound of glass smashing and a girl screaming. "Call the cops," another person yelled, causing me, Amanda and Leo to run downstairs.
What we saw shocked all of us. "Oh, my god," Amanda screamed as she got a clear view of what had happened.
