Happy Halloween & Blessed Samhain all!
Josh was the first to wake. He noticed Damon was missing from the group sleeping on the ground. He followed the soft snoring to the back of the truck where he found Damon. He then climbed up in and layed down by him. Damon woke up and smiled.
"Hi," he said.
"Hi," Josh said and smiled back. "Rob stole all the blankets. Mind if I steal some of yours?"
"Not at all." Damon said while opening the blanket.
"Your crazy! Sleepin' in the nude in this cold weather?"
"Yup I am. Can't sleep with clothes on."
"Agreed, but I'm too shy with everyone around."
"Damn right." Josh said, with his most serious looking face.
"Your worse than my mom! Well, at least you can say 'penis' without blushing."
"That's not all I can do with the topic at hand."
"I know." Damon blushed.
"I haven't seen you blush before. It's kinda cute."
"Don't start!" Damon said blushing harder.
"Fine I won't, I'm tired anyway." Josh made his way closer and fell asleep. Damon didn't mind and soon fell back to sleep.
Damon woke up first to the noise going on around him. He noticed the voices as Bonnie and Rob.
"I feel like I'm his plaything, I can't help it. First he runs off, after babbling, then I saw them kissing. Grrr!"
"I'm sure it's not as bad as you say, but I have noticed his been eyeing Damon." That bitch. Damon thought.
"What!?" Rob snapped a little.
"Listen, I don't think Josh would do anything. He probably just likes flirting with 'the bad guy'."
"Maybe..." Rob said, thinking about it. "I guess you could be right, but still I don't like sharing!"
"Wasn't the threesome your idea?" she looked at him, "Yea thats what I thought. you knew he used to have a crush on Damon you should have seen that bringing back long lost feelings."
"I know, I know. I'm stupid. I just wish I would have seen this coming."
Damon blocked out the rest of their conversation, while watching Josh sleep. Josh's arm was draped over Damons abdomen near his happy trail. He loved the feeling of Josh touching him. He looked at his face, it was slightly bathed by the sun coming through the leaves. Josh had light skin that seemed impossible to have in Arizona. Especially since he was usually out walking around. After an hour of staring at him he started to wake up.
"Hi there." Josh said with a smile.
"Hi! Good morning."
"I need to go pee then find Rob. I'll see ya in a little bit."
"'K. Thanks for stopping by."
"No thanks needed." Josh walked off towards Bonnie. "Hey do you know where Rob is?"
"He went to go collect firewood for lunch. He should be back in a little bit. Why don't you go lay with your plaything?"
"Whats that supposed to mean!?"
"Esactly what I said. You are that blind to not see how bad your making Rob feel? You could at least hide it!"
"Bonnie... leave him alone." Rob said, his voice behind Josh.
"Ok... we need to talk. 'Plaything'? Mmk ... I've obviously missed something here."
"It's fine I can see your falling for Damon, I can accept that if it makes you happy."
"Am I the only sane person here? I don't want to be with Damon sexually he's a good friend thats all! Your my boyfriend!"
"Ha is that what you call it?" Bonnie said.
"Grr! No Rob I love yopu, I love Damon as a brother... Yea I was confused, I love him and had a crush on him. But he's not my boyfriend!! Or Lover! or 'Plaything'!"
"But you crawled off with him to the bed of his truck!"
"What I'm not allowed to comfort a friend? He's confused just like I was."
"Are you telling the truth?"
"Yes he is. I kissed him last night, he pushed me away, don't blame him." Damon said stepping in.
"Sorry Joshie, I should have know better."
"No I should have acted better hot lips."
"You can't be faslling for that Rob!"
"He's telling the truth and I know it."
After a silent lunch, and a bit of tension, jim broke the silence. "Ok we get it, Josh was flirting with Damon, Rob got jealous, and Bonnie... I dunno whats up with her butting in. But all I know is you should all grow up and quit giving each other the silent treatment, its so lame."
Bonnie stood up and walked off. While damon sighed. Rob looked bored and stupid, while josh was amazed Jim had some brains. "It's that obvious?"
"Yes, but your secret is safe with me. I live in Colorado, and I'm not a homophob."
"Interesting..." Rob said fascinated by a stick bug. A few hours later they finished packing up camp. Everyone heading their ways home. It was a long boring 2 hour ride. Josh was happy when they stopped at a gas station just outside of Phoenix. Another half an hour and they were home.
Later that night Bonnie called Rob to appologise for butting in on his personal matters. He didn't care, he knew she was just trying to help him.
At Josh's house was an amazing sight. Him hugging his mothers soon to be husband. "I'm sorry I've always treated you like shit. I just don't know how to accept my mothers boyfriends, they usually all turn out to be freaks. Yet you saved my life and I treated you worse."
"It isn't that bad, I can understand. But I'm willing to try to be your friend, I know I can't replace your father--"
"You 50x better than my real dad. He isn't hard to replace. He left after hurting us. probably one of the best things that happened to us. And your the second. Thanks for being patient with my smart ass."
"No problem. But all this mushiness is getting to me..."
"So agreed... I was sicking myself out."
"Ha. I'm glad we had this talk."
"Me too. Want a cigarette?"
Mmmk Sorry for the short chapter and long long delay. I was in the process of moving didnt have much time. And I really wanted to get another chapter in. I'll try and get another one in soon. Happy Holidays all.
