Saving Adam Church

My name is Sebastian Jones, and boy did I get the shock of my life when Katie Church phoned on that Friday afternoon. I mean at sixteen she was a whole year ahead of me at school and according to the unwritten laws of the schoolyard we did not socialise.

She asked me to stop by her house around six since her parents were out if town for the weekend and we would have the house to ourselves. That was except for her brother Adam, or I should say stepbrother, but she promised that he wouldn't be about. Adam was in the same class as me and was really the school's outcast. He didn't have many friends that I knew of - if any - but from my few brief encounters with him he seemed an ok guy but incredibly shy.

I turned up at the church's door at exactly 6pm and I had to take a deep breath before knocking, she was very pretty. When she opened the door I couldn't help but stare. She was wearing a short red mini skirt, white top, and legs that went all the way up.

"Hi Seb. Don't just stand there come in."

Even her voice was sexy.

"Ok," was all I managed to say.

I followed her into the living room where she told me to take a seat. We spent the next hour or so chatting on the sofa. She was so hot so I was doing my absolute best to score and wasn't getting very far, which was really frustrating. After our second or third uncomfortable silence she asked me if I wanted something to drink. I gratefully accepted, I needed a few minutes to take stock of the situation.

She was gone for about ten minutes. When she returned she not only had two glasses of iced tea but what looked like a book and some loose pieces of paper bound together with a piece of string.

"Here's your iced tea," She said.

"Thanks. What's that?" I asked.

"Oh this," she said, "just something you should read."

"Really, what is it?" I said settling back into the sofa, trying to look staunch.

"Just Adam's journal, a few of his short stories and other stuff."

"Why would I want to read that?"

"Because the stories are about you and there are some very juicy tid-bits in the journal as well. She's a faggot you know, and really has the hots for you."

"What!" I yelled. I was totally shocked. The only reason she asked me here was to tell me that her brother was attracted to me. She could have done that over the phone. What a bitch.

"You stay here and read, I'll go get the little miss," she said, and with that she tossed me the pile of papers and left to go upstairs. "Promise me you will still be here when I get back."

"Sure," I responded, holding the stack of pages at arms length.

"I know your reputation Seb. You promised and you always keep your word," she said disappearing up the stairs.

Damn my ethics I thought, and slowly started thumbing through the pages. I started with the journal, and as I read it became quickly apparent that Adam was rather taken with me, bordering on the obsessive. He seemed to notice everything I did, everything I said, the way I sat, the way I moved, everything. He noticed when I was having a bad day and when I was having a good one. I was beginning to feel very guilty about reading someone else's journal. Admittedly there was intermittent stuff about me in it, but that didn't give me the right to be reading it. I put it down on the table and picked up the other pile of papers. I started to hear movement and voices coming down the stairs.

"Come on. It's time we had something to eat," I could here Katie saying.

"But ... " Came a voice that I assumed was Adam's. I stood mentally preparing my self for the meeting that was about to occur.

"Move it!" Katie demanded.

I definitely was not prepared for what I saw when they both entered the room. It literally shocked me to the core. What I saw was another teenage girl, at least I thought for a split second it was a girl before I realised that it was Adam in a dress. A very short pale pink mini dress, small fake breasts, ear rings, make-up. I could even see the top of his stocking and the attached garter belt. He didn't look half bad for a guy in drag.

When he saw me he froze. I stood there looking at him. He stood there looking at me. I was just about to say something when he saw that I had his papers in my hand.

"Oh God!" he gasped. He immediately turned and ran up the stairs crying.

"I think the little fairy's upset," Katie said laughing

At this point I panicked. "I ... I got to go," I managed to say before bolting out the door.

Katie just stood there laughing even harder. "Priceless...absolutely priceless!" I heard her say as my feet hit the garden path. I just ran, I had no idea where I was going, all I knew was that I had to get away. Eventually I began to calm down and I realised that I was only a couple of blocks away from my house. I decided that that was probably the best place to go so I stared walking in that direction. It was about then I realised that I still had Adam's papers. I half thought of returning them, but I decided that going back there was not a good idea.

When I got home I headed straight for my room, closed the door, and collapsed on my bed. I stayed there for what seemed like an eternity just thinking - playing the evening over and over in my head. The only reason that Katie had asked me there was to humiliate her stepbrother, but why? Maybe the answer was in the papers she had given me. I turned on the light and started reading. What I read was truly amazing. There were short stories and poems by the ton. Yes many of the short stories were about me, and there were more than a few that involved sex, but it didn't seem to bother me and I couldn't work out why.

After a couple of hours of reading story after story I came across one very special poem. I read it over and over again. It touched something very deep inside me. What I read was nothing more than the words that gave my life meaning and it screamed for music to accompany them. I walked over to my keyboard, made sure I had headphones plugged in, and started composing. It was the easiest thing I had ever written in my life. The music just flowed out of me, it was fantastic, I don't think I have ever felt more alive.

Music had always been the thing that gave my life purpose, and it was the only thing that I was really good at. I play keyboards, guitar (normally lead electric), and saxophone. I also sing a little though I didn't like the sound of my voice.

Exhaustion finally took over around four in the morning. I crawled into bed and was very quickly asleep. I woke up early the next morning, well it was early for me anyway, around 10 AM, and I quickly got up and had a shower. Then it was back to the keyboard to record what I had written the night before. A few hours later I was making the final copy when my mother poked her head around my door.

"Sounds good," She said.


"The lyrics are interesting."

"A friend of mine wrote them."

"Oh they are really good, but the music is something else," She said with one of those goofy smiles that only a mother can make.

"Thanks Mom."

"Haven't you got volleyball in 30 minutes?" She asked.

I took a glance at the clock next to my bed. "Oh shit! Ben's going to be here any minute!"

"He already is. Hey Ms. J." Came a voice from behind my mother making her jump.

"Oh Sh... you scared the hell out of me Ben!"

"Sorry Ms J." Ben said, and he gave her a kiss on the cheek. "You about ready to go music man?"

"Give me a minute," I said, pulling clothes from my dresser.

"He's been composing all night again," My mother said leaving us to it.

Ben was my best friend in the world even though he was two years older than me. We meet a year ago and at the time I was going out with his sister Emma. One Friday night I turned up at their house only to find that Emma had gone away with their parents for the weekend. When Ben answered the door I could see that he had been crying - although he denies it to this day. It turned out that he had broken up with his girlfriend Julie. We ended up talking for hours and I found out a lot about how he felt about her. When I finally left he thanked me for staying and talking with him. The moment I got home I sat at my keyboard, several hours later I finished it, a love song. Up until last night I considered it my best work. The next day I went around to his house with my guitar and after a lot of convincing I played the song for him. He flipped, and insisted that we go around to Julie's house immediately. I swear we broke all speed records getting to her house, and when we arrived I proceeded to serenade her from outside her bedroom windows. It was the most romantic situation I had ever seen in my life. Julie absolutely loved the song. When she heard that the words were Ben's she melted and so did her twin sisters who were in my class at school. Being a good friend, I volunteered to take the twins to the movies to give Ben and Julie a chance to make up properly. Ok I have to admit the twins are very hot so it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Ben and Julie have been together ever since that day.

"Hurry up dude, we're going to be late," Said Ben taking the seat by my keyboard.

"Ok, Ok. I'm almost ready...where the hell are my shoes?"

"What have you been working on? Julie and I are still together, or is there something I should know?"

"Not everything I write is for you and your girlfriend. Sometimes I write stuff for me as well...Arr there they are, let's go."

Ben was looking at what I had written.

"Who's making us late now?" I said, punching him lightly in the arm.

He looked up at me with a very odd look on his face. "Ok...lets go then."

I ended up playing the best game of volleyball I have every played in my life. Everything just flowed so sweetly. After the game everyone including the opposition congratulated me on how well I had played, though Ben was still giving me strange looks and was unusually quiet. We ended up going to Jacks - the current place to be - to celebrate. All the time while we were at Jacks Ben was giving me these really strange looks, he even followed me to the bathroom. By the time we left I was getting really pissed off.

"What the fuck is wrong with you?" I asked as while were on our way back to my place in Ben's car.

"Nothing...what do you mean?"

"You've been giving me strange looks all day and what's that following me to the bathroom shit?"

"Its nothing don't worry about it."

"The fuck its nothing...Tell me!" by this stage I had gone from pissed off to angry.

"I'd prefer not to talk about it," he said, trying hard to concentrate on driving.

"Pull the car over...pull the car over NOW!" I was yelling. Ben kept driving.

"I mean it BEN!!" He finally pulled to the side of the road.

"Well!!!" I said impatiently.

"I don't thin...." He started to say. I snapped.

"FUCK..." and I started to get out of the car. I was almost out the door when I felt Ben's hand on my shoulder.

"Don't go. Please."

"Well what is it then! Are you in trouble? Is Julie pregnant?" I said still yelling.

"Oh god no...It's you I'm worried about."

"What?" quieter this time, "There's nothing wrong with me. I've just played the best game of my life and I have just written probably the best piece of music I'll every write. I'm on top of the world!"

"Ok...It's nothing then...just drop it," he said, not sounding convinced.

"I'm dropping nothing. Tell me what's bothering you!"

"Ok...Ok..." he said before taking a big breath. It was then I knew that this was serious. "It's just that I have found out that my best friend is gay and quite possibly suicidal."

I just sat there staring at him. I couldn't believe what he was saying. Me gay, and suicidal?

"Say something...I'm here for you man," he said after a few seconds of me staring.

" I'm definitely not thinking of killing my self any time soon," I said quietly.

"Oh, then who wrote the words to the 'best piece of music I've ever written in my life'?"

It was just then that the true meaning of Adams poem/lyrics dawned on me. I mean that I had pretty much figured out that he was gay and the song did talk about loving the untouchable, but one line just came to me in a rush slapping me hard in the face. 'Death would be better than him knowing'.

"Adam...Shit. SHIT!"

"Adam, Adam who? Calm down talk to me," Ben said.

I was in an absolute panic. I couldn't even think, I just kept repeating "Shit". Ben slapped me in the face, not too hard but hard enough to snap me out of the trance I was in.

"Adam who?" he repeated.

"Adam Church. They're his lyrics...about me." I told Ben the whole story. From the phone call through to me reading the journal, then seeing him dressed, everything.

"She's trying to kill him," Ben replied after I had finished.

"You're right. I can't let that happen. We can't let that happen!" I was starting to panic again. The thought of anyone killing himself because they thought that they loved me and couldn't have me disturbed me.

"Ok...Ok this is what we are going to do. First we are going back to my place and we'll get Emma to give him a ring to make sure that he is all right. We will get her to ask or something...that will work. They do have some classes together don't they?"

I just nodded.

"Then I'll call Julie and cancel our date tonight."

"No don't do don't have to get involved."

"I am involved Sebastian. I'm not letting that bitch kill someone when I can do something about it."

"Thanks Ben, I don't think I could do this on my own."

An evil smile came across Ben's face. "We're going to get her. Oh boy we're going to get her...Ok, I ring Julie, then we will go see someone who can help."

"Who?" I asked, getting a bit worried. "I don't think I could tell anyone else."

"Don't worry. It'll be all right," Ben promised.

Fifteen minutes later we were back at Ben's place and Emma was dialing Adam's number. I was doing my best to dig a hole to china by pacing up and down the hall.

"Its ringing," Emma said, "Why am I doing this again?"

"Please Sis!" Ben begged.

She flashed her big brother a look. She hated to be called that along with many other things. That's why we broke up, I got sick of having to watch everything I said when I was with her.

"Hi, is Adam there?" She said pressing the speakerphone button so we could all hear.

"Can I ask who's calling?" said the voice on the other end of the phone.

"Is that you Katie? It's Emma Fuller, I'm in Adams English class and I was just wondering if he got what we were supposed to do for homework."

"You are ringing up on a Saturday to ask about homework?" Katie asked suspiciously.

"Um...well ..." she was looking at us questioningly. 'Think of something,' I mouthed.

"I kind of got grounded for sneaking out to go to Greg Mastersons party last weekend and have nothing better to do than homework."

"Oh, Ok I'll go get him."

We heard the phone being put down.

"Nice cover sis!"

"You're both going to pay for this. Big time."

We heard the phone being picked up before either one of us could respond. In the background we heard 'make it quick sissy boy' before a very dejected voice came on to the line.


"Hi Adam, it's Emma. Did we have any English homework this week?"

"We just have to read chapters 10 through 13."

"That all, cool thanks. You Ok?" I was making motions to keep him talking.


"Ok then. Bye"

"Bye," and he hung up.

"Not very talkative is he?" she said, slightly defending herself.

"You did great. Thank you Emma," Ben said, "Now on to phase 2, I'll ring Julie. Seb, you ring your mother from the phone in my room. Tell her you are staying here tonight."

I nodded and walked up the stairs towards Ben's room. 'Thank god he's still alive' I thought just before dialing my number. After a 10-minute lecture about being careful from my mother - I considered this getting off lightly - I walked back down the stairs.

"There you are. Ok we're off. See you later Emma."

"Where are you off to in such a hurry?" asked Ben's mom coming though the front door with grocery bags in her hands.

"Um...I promised Uncle Pete that I would drop by today. I'm taking Seb with me so I don't have to say too long."

"Oh Ok" his mum said not sounding too convinced.

"See you later Mom. Come on Seb we are going to be late."

"Say I to Pete for me." Emma called from the other room.

We had been driving for about 20-minutes before I noticed that we were headed out of town.

"Where are we going?" I asked

"To my Uncle Pete's. He and his um...friend Simon can help."

"I'm not so sure I want to involve anyone else Ben."

"They can help, believe me. Plus they're expecting us."

We spent the next hour travelling in silence with nothing but the radio playing quietly in the background to keep us company. The miles slipped quickly by, I was completely lost in thought. Why did I care wether Adam lived or died so deeply? Why did I not see the poem for what it was? Plus many other questions ran through my head. What also was not helping was that I was very nervous about what Ben had in store for me.

"We're here," Ben said turning into a driveway that seemed to go on forever.

We finally arrived at the house. Ben stopped the car and got out, I, on the other hand, just sat there lost in thought.

"Come on," he said opening my door, "They don't bite."

The closer we got to the front door the more uncomfortable I felt, and it was not made any better when the door was opened. What I saw was a man in his mid to late twenties, he was waring a collar, no shirt, and tight leather shorts that left very little to the imagination.

"Hello sir," he said, "Master said you were going to stop by this evening."

"Hi Simon, this is my friend Sebastian."

"It's a pleasure to meet you Sebastian. Please come in." He showed us to the living room.

"Please wait here, I'll go get the Master."

After he left the room I turned to Ben.

"What's with the Master shit?"

"They have a different type of relationship." He did not have a chance to elaborate further as Simon returned following another man whom I assumed was Ben's Uncle, Pete.

"Hello Benjamin, I assume this is Sebastian."

I nodded in his direction.

"What's the big emergency?" he asked.

"Hi Pete. Before we tell you I need Simon to be able to speak freely."

Pete looked concerned but agreed. Ben proceeded to tell them about Adam, Katie, our meeting, the stories, the song, and the argument in the car between Ben and myself. Basically everything, the bits Ben left out I filled in reluctantly.

It turned out that by day Simon was a child psychiatrist and had dealt with similar situations, though he had to admit that this one was a bit unique. He was a lot of help.

"Ok...You two are willing to help Adam out?" Simon asked.

"Yes," Both Ben and I responded.

"Then here's what we have to do. There is nothing I can do officially based on the evidence of a poem but I agree he needs help. Typically the person who is suicidal won't try anything while there is someone around, so you need to find out when those opportunities are and eliminate them. I would also really like to have a talk with Adam. Do you think you could arrange a meeting?"

"I don't could be difficult," I said. Ben also looked concerned.

It was then that I had an idea, and I started smiling.

"I can think of one way...though be a bit of an imposition."

"What is it son? Spit it out," Ben's Uncle Pete said. He had remained silent until now but had been listening to everything that had been said.

"Well there is a lunar eclipse on Friday night and this place is far enough out of town so that we will be able to see it perfectly. We could invite him out here to watch it. If that's ok with you sir?" I though it wise to add the sir.

Both Simon and Ben started smiling.

"It's a good idea Master. Plus it would give you an opportunity to show off your new telescope."

Pete remained silent for a few seconds. "I suppose it would be ok, but slave, if there is anything I will be showing off it will be you strapped..."

"Master," Simon interrupted. Pete just started to laugh, Ben, and especially myself, sat there watching the scene, very confused.

"It's late, I assume the both of you will be spending the night?" Pete said after recovering from his laughing fit.

"Actually I was planning on driving us back tonight..." Ben said looking at his watch "... or rather this morning." This caused me to look at my own watch. It was close to one in the morning.

"Nonsense I will hear nothing of it. Simon go fix up one of the spare rooms."

"Yes Master," Simon said and left to tend to his duties.

Not long after Simon left Ben and I found our selves in a room with two single beds. I collapsed on one of the beds and was quickly asleep. In the morning we said our good-bye's and thank-you's and traveled back to the city. We chatted along the way making plans on how to find out Adam's schedule both at school and after school.

As soon as we hit Ben's house we made the better part of 30 phone calls each. It wasn't the most descrete way of doing it, but by the end of it we had both Adam's and Katie's schedules. We figured that we had almost the entire week covered as long as his parents did not go out at any stage. The only problem was Wednesday afternoon. Katie had cheerleading practice and Adam's parents both worked, so there would be a 2-hour gap that I volunteered to cover.

By the time school started Monday we felt that we were in good shape. Adam arrived on time, went to all of his classes, and then went home with his sister. I tried to talk to him during lunch, but every time I got anywhere near him he would basically run away. Tuesday followed much the same pattern.

We felt comfortable that things were going according to plan right up until the end of third period on Wednesday. I wasn't too concerned that Adam had skipped third period because it was gym. He often skipped gym, he probably didn't feel too comfortable being gay and showering with a whole bunch of boys. At lunch I found Ben.

"Hey Ben, you seen Adam?" I said sitting down at his table.

"Na man. You're the one who has classes with him."

"I know that but he skipped gym and I haven't seen him since. He always skips gym."

It was then I realised that he was missing.

"Shit...Shit...we've got to find him." I said showing the early signs of a panic attack.

"Ok, you search the school, I'll take the grounds. We'll meet up in the library in fifteen minutes."

We split up and started the search, but to no avail. By the time we were supposed meet back up in the library I knew that Adam wasn't in school, so I left the school grounds and headed toward his house. It took me twenty minutes to get to his house, and I spent another ten minutes walking around the house looking for signs of life. I was wondering what to do next when I kicked a stone next to the path leading to the backdoor. It was loose and rolled over reveling a key.

"I hope this place doesn't have an alarm," I said to no one in particular as I slid the key into the lock, turned it, and stepped into the kitchen.

Looking around the kitchen I noticed a note attached to the fridge with 'To Mum & Dad' on it. I felt a little guilty taking it off the fridge to read it but I was already breaking and entering what was a little invasion of privacy.

'Dear Mum & Dad,

I am sorry that you have to find out like this but I cannot live with the lie anymore. I am gay and in love with someone who will never love me and what's worse he knows and hates me.

Katie has helped me realize that death would be better than everyone else knowing.

Please don't think badly of me.


'My god he's going to do it.' I thought realizing that I held Adam's suicide note in my hand.

I started a bottom to top search of the house. I started with the basement, then the ground floor of the house and finally the second floor. My heart was thumping as I stood at the top of the stairs. The first door I came to was Adam's parent's room. Then there was what I assumed was Katie's room. I could hear nothing but my heart thumping when I arrived at the third door that I guessed was Adam's. I open the door very slowly but once again no Adam.

I stood there confused for a few seconds before I saw another door across the corridor from Adam's room. A sense of calm came over me as I opened the door that lead to the bathroom.

"Don't do it man." I said to Adam.

The room was full of steam but I could see Adam sitting on the side of the bath with a razor blade at his wrist. He just looked blankly at me. I don't think he realized that I was there. He looked back down at his wrist and made a small incision. I walked forward and gently put my hand on his arm preventing him from cutting himself any further.

"Don't do it," I repeated.

Adam looked at me, blinked and burst into tears. I put my arms around him holding him while he cried.

"It's's going to be ok," I kept repeating while he sobbed with his head against my chest.

I do not know how long I sat there holding Adam while he cried but he eventually calmed down a little and pulled away from me.

I looked at him directly in the eyes and said, "Everything is going to be ok. I promise...Killing yourself is not the answer."

His head dropped and said, "I thought it would be easier than everyone knowing"

I gently lifted his head. "No one knows and I will make sure that they never know. Now lets get you cleaned up and get out of here. My ass has gone numb sitting on the edge of this bath."

This brought a very faint smile to his face. I turned on the overhead fan to clear some of the steam. I opened medicine cabinet, found antiseptic cream and bandaged and went back to Adam.

"Why?" he asked me.

"Because I don't want you to get an infection." I said. I knew what he was asking but was trying to avoid answering.

He was silent for a few seconds.

"No, why are you here?"

"Because I don't like the idea of anyone killing themselves over me."

"How did you know?"

"I didn't really, it was just a feeling." I decided to come completely clean. "I read your poems." He nodded. "Well when I read one of them, it just screamed out to be made into a song. Saturday morning I was putting the final touches on it when Ben Fuller came around. He was the one who realized what it was really about."

"So Ben knows?"

"Yes, but don't worry. He won't say anything, I promise."

I put the finishing touches to the dressing. "There we go. Now lets get you dressed and go downstairs and get something to eat. I'm starving." Adam wasn't naked but he wasn't wearing a shirt.

"I think you may need to change your shirt as well," he said with a weak smile. He was right, my T-shirt was a mess with a mixture of tear and blood stains all over it.

"You may have a point there," I responded.

We made our way to Adam's bedroom. He grabbed a couple of T-shirts from his dresser and handed one to me. I felt a little uncomfortable changing in front of him, but tried not to let it show as I pulled off my T and replaced it with the one that Adam gave me.

"Fits pretty good," I said trying to keep the situation a light a possible. "Come on I need food."

We spent the rest of the afternoon sitting at the kitchen table talking and eating. Well I was doing most of the eating but I did manage to get Adam to eat something. I found out a lot about Adam that afternoon. We had a lot in common, we liked the same music, enjoyed the same movies, and even our birthdays were in the same month.

Neither of us noticed the time slipping by, and we were both surprised when Katie came charging into the kitchen followed by their mother.

"What the hell are you doing here?" She said at me angrily.

"Hi Katie. Adam and I were just's helping me with a project for school." I knew she didn't believe me. It took me a second to regain my composure.

"You must me Mrs. Church. I'm Sebastian Jones, Adam's friend." This brought a big smile to Adam's face.

"Are you two queer for one another?" Katie asked before her mother could respond.

"KATIE! don't say things like that. Now apologize to Adam and Sebastian."

"Sorry," she said half-heartedly.

"That's better. It's a pleasure to meet you Sebastian. It is nice to finally actually meet one of Adam's friends. Would you like to stay for dinner?" The look on Katie's face told me that I had better duck this one.

"I would really like to Mrs. Church, but my mother is making a special dinner tonight and I should really be there. Thank you for asking though."

"That's all right dear you're most welcome anytime."

"I had actually better get going. Adam, I'll pick you up for school tomorrow," I said standing and motioning for him to follow me.

"That'd be cool," he said.

"It's been nice meeting you Mrs. Church. Bye Katie."

Once we were out of hearing range of both Katie and Mrs. Church I turned to Adam.

"Are you going to be ok?"

"Yes...Yes I am. Thank you Sebastian, for everything."

"Don't mention it. I'll see you tomorrow."

As soon as I got home I rang Ben and told him what went on that afternoon. He insisted that I also ring Simon, which I did. He was very worried about Adam, but he agreed that Adam was probably safe since for the time being anyway since his opportunity had passed.

Ben, Julie and I arrived at Adam's house the next morning. I don't think I have ever seen anyone smile as much as Adam did when he opened his front door.

"I wasn't sure you were coming," he said grinning.

"You ready? We normally grab a coffee at Starbucks before school."

" I'll just grab my stuff." He ran up the stairs leaving me standing at the door.

No sooner had Adam disappeared up the stairs than Katie appeared out if the living room.

"What the fuck do you think you are doing?"

"Looking after a friend," I responded.

Before she could say anything more Adam appeared behind her.

"Lets go," Adam said with a worried look.

"Make sure your home right after school. I've got big plans for you sissy boy," Katie said quietly as Adam passed her.

"Sorry Katie, but I'm afraid Adam isn't going to make it. We have an appointment at Jacks after school." I could see that this really pissed Katie off but I didn't care.

As we got near to the car Adam said quietly, "You don't have to do that you know."

"Yea I do," I said quietly in response. Then louder as I opened the car door "Ben, Julie this is Adam."

"Hi Adam," they said in unison.

"Hi!" Adam responded weakly. I could tell he was a little scared and also very nervous.

"Relax they don't bit. Though they do nibble every now and then but only each other." This brought laughter from Ben, a smile from Adam and the desired reaction from Julie.

"Sebastian! You shouldn't say things like that."

"Why? Its true," Ben added. This brought laughter from everyone this time.

Adam seemed to relax a little. We grabbed a quick coffee at Starbucks then went on to school. I stayed pretty close to Adam all day and made sure he sat with us at lunch. This brought a few strange looks from a few of the other students, but I didn't care.

After school I was leading Adam back to Ben's car when he touched me on the arm.

"I shouldn't...Katie said I..."

"Stuff Katie. She doesn't control your life."


"But nothing. You and I are going to Jacks and we are going to have a good time. Ok?"

"Ok." He didn't sound convinced.

"Hey if you don't want to come you don't have to. I don't want to force you into anything you don't want to do."

"No I really want to. It's just that I'm worried."

"Look, don't be. Everything is going to be cool. I promise."

Jacks was a lot of fun. The music was pumping, the food was good and the company was really interesting. Adam was coming out of his shell. He was actually really funny and his laugh was really infectious. He would start laughing then I would start laughing which would only encourage him. It was a vicious circle.

After spending a few hours there it was time to leave. Adam was very quiet on the trip to his house. I think he was concerned about what Katie might do to him since he had defied her. I was confident that everything was going to work itself out. As we pulled up to his house it was time to kick phase two into action.

"Can I use your bathroom?" I said as he got out of the car.

"Sure. Thanks for the ride Ben."

"Not a problem. You want me to wait Seb?"

"Nah I'll walk. It's not that far."

"Ok. I'll see you both tomorrow."

We walked up the path together.

"The bathroom's up the stairs, first on the right," he said as we entered the front door.

"I remember. Back in a sec."

I didn't really need to go, but I needed an excuse to come in. I really wanted to have a little chat with his mother. After doing by business I found them both in the kitchen.

"Hi Mrs Church. Smells good," I proclaimed as I walked through the kitchen door.

"Thank you Sebastian. See! Someone appreciates my cooking," she said smiling at Adam.

"He hasn't tasted it yet," Adam said with a cheeky grin.

It's really nice when he smiles, I thought quickly followed by, he's a guy, I shouldn't be thinking those thoughts about a guy. It was then that I realized that I was being asked a question of which the only part I caught was

"... stay for dinner?"

"Oh...I'm sorry Mrs. Church I wish I could but I am spending the night away from home tomorrow night and this is my last opportunity to suck up to Mom to make sure she lets me go." This resulted in a very strange look from Adam and Katie who had just walked into the kitchen.

"I understand completely. I wish these two would do a little of that every now and again."

"Where are you going?" Adam asked quietly.

"Oh...Ben, Julie, and myself are spending the night as Ben's uncles place to watch the lunar eclipse. I was actually wondering if you would like to join us?"

"Can I Mom?" Excited at the opportunity to escape Katie for another evening.

"Well I don't know...there was that crack about my cooking."


"Of course you can dear. As long as it's Ok with Ben's uncle."

"It is Mrs. Church. I've already asked him if it's Ok. He owns a small farm about and hour or so out of town and he has plenty of room."

I have never seen anyone grin as much as Adam did at that moment. Katie on the other hand looked very pissed off and stormed out of the kitchen.

"She's been in a strange mood all week," Mrs. Church said, as the kitchen door slammed closed.

"I really have to go. I'll see you all tomorrow."

"Mr. Church and I are going away for the weekend but you boys have a good time and stay out of trouble."

"We will Mrs. Church. Bye."

Adam followed me out.

"What do I need to bring?" He asked.

"Just an overnight bag. But I'm predicting that Katie will try something... " He got a very concerned look on his face "... so I've got that covered just in case."

"I'm worried."

"You shouldn't worry so much. I'll see you tomorrow."

I was in good sprits as I walked home. Nothing fazed me, even when my Mom hassled me about giving her no option in letting me stay out the next night. I woke the next morning actually looking forward to going to school.

Even though I was looking forward to going to school the time really dragged while I was there. I couldn't concentrate on anything to the point of almost getting a detention in math class for not paying attention.

"What took you so long?" Ben asked as I walked up to his car after school.

"He had to see Ms. Fox after class. He was caught daydreaming in class." Adam said giggling.

"You get a detention?" Ben asked

"Nah I managed to charm my way out of it. I think she has the hots for me."

"Not every female in the world finds you irresistible Casanova," Julie said wrapping her arms around Ben.

"That's not what Lilly and Lisa said a couple of weeks ago." Lilly and Lisa were Julie's twin sisters.

"Sebastian, you didn't!"

"I really wish you wouldn't tease her like that." Ben said pretending to be angry. He knew I wasn't teasing, in fact, to that point in my life I considered it one of my crowning achievements. I started to laugh and this made Julie relax a little.

"Come on lets go. I want to get to Pete's sometime tonight," I said getting into the car.

We dropped Julie off first.

"You were kidding earlier weren't you about my sisters?" She said to me as she got out of the car.

"Maybe," I said with an evil grin

"Sometime your impossible. See you guys in a couple of hours."

"You are going to have her going on all weekend now," Ben said pulling way from the curb.

"Sorry dude, but she started it. Just tell her I was joking."

"I will, but I don't like lying to her."

We arrived at Adam's house next.

"I'll be round in about an hour." I said to him as he got out of the car.

"Oh ok. See you then."

"Is he ok?" Ben asked as we headed in the direction of my house.

"Sure why wouldn't he be."

"Well you's just that he was very quite."

"He's always very quite," I pointed out.

"I suppose you're right."

"Hey can you drop me at the mall? I have a couple of things I need to pick up for tonight," I asked.

"Sure. You still going to be ready by six?"

"Yep. Just pick Adam and I up from my place."


Ben dropped me off in front of the mall. I quickly went around the various shops I needed to visit. I was really going to have to rush to pick Adam up and be back at my place by six.

I managed to get to Adam's place by just before 5:30. Katie opened the door as soon as I arrived.

"She's almost ready," Katie said as I stepped inside their house.

"Oh Sissy boy, your dates here," She called from the bottom of the stairs.

After a few seconds Adam appeared at the top of the stairs. As I predicted he was wearing a dress and a blond wig. The makeup surprised me a little.

"She spent ages deciding what outfit to wear. Just for you Sebastian," She said giggling to herself.

For the second time her plan was about to backfire. I didn't even acknowledge her but tossed the bag I had in my hand up the stairs to Adam.

"Hurry up and get changed. We are being picked up from my place at six."

Adam broke out into one of his killer smiles and ran off toward his room.

"Better luck next time," I said turning toward Katie.

Katie didn't respond she just stormed off. I couldn't help smiling as I heard her screaming from the next room.

A few minutes later Adam and I left his house leaving Katie standing in the front doorway with her hands on her hips.

"Thanks for the clothes. I was worried you would leave when you saw what I was wearing," he said as we got a little way down the road.

"I told you I had everything under control!"

"I know, but I wasn't sure whether to believe you. I mean nobody has every been this nice to me."

"That's what friends do for one another. Come on, we are going to have to get moving to be back at my place by six."

We rushed to my place. My Mom was home when we got there so that meant introductions.

"Hi Mom. This is Adam. He's coming with us."

"Hi Adam. Do you know each other from school?"

"Yes Ma'am," Adam answered.

"Finally you have a friend who knows his manners," she said to me, "You don't need to be that formal Adam. Most of Sebastian's friends call me Mrs. J."

"Yes Ma'am...I mean Mrs. J." Mom laughed a little.

"Come on I've still got to finish packing," I said rescuing Adam from the situation.

"Aren't you ready yet? I thought you were being picked up in five minutes?" Mom mock scolded.

"I know, but it's Ben Mom. He's always 15-minutes late."

"You'll be back tomorrow right?"

"Should be, but I may stay at Ben's tomorrow night."

"Ok. You had better hurry, Ben just may surprise you one day."

I showed Adam to my room and began throwing clothes into a bag. I figured that I didn't need too much as I as only going to be away one night. Adam sat on the chair next to my keyboard and watched me frantically try and find one of my sneakers with a little smile on his face.

"Is this the song?" He asked looking at the score sitting on my keyboard.

"Yea it is."

"Play it for me."

"I don't think we have time. Ben and Julie will be here any second."

"Please!" He gave me his best puppy dog look and got up from the keyboard.

"Ok," I relented. "But warning I'm not that good at singing."

I sat down, took a deep breath and started. When I finished I looked at Adam for approval. I was always a little self-conscious about my music. I thought I detected a little tear in Adam's eyes, but before I could say something my Mom called out that Ben had arrived.

I grabbed my bag and started toward the door. I felt Adam's hand on my arm.

"Thank you. That was really beautiful."

"It's your words I just put the music that fit with them." He was standing there looking directly into my eyes.

"We had better go," I said breaking the spell.

The ride out to Ben's Uncle Pete's place was fairly uneventful except for Julie insisting on playing the song I had written for her and Ben over and over. I really think it was a mistake putting it on tape for her.

When we arrived I was a little surprised to see Simon dressed in regular clothes. After the introductions and a banquet fit for royalty we were led out to the back field where we settled down to wait for the lunar eclipse to start. Simon and Adam quickly became friends. Simon was obviously a very skilled psychiatrist and had Adam talking about his childhood and relationship with his family without even noticing that he was doing it.

As the time for the eclipse drew near Ben and Julie left quietly to be by themselves, as did Pete and Simon. That left Adam and I lying in the grass of the backfield staring at the sky. Slowly it started, the moon gradually turning red as the earth passed between it and the sun revealing what seemed like billions of stars normally hidden.

I was lying in the grass enjoying the peace and tranquillity. I closed my eyes just listening to the sounds of the night. 'I'm being kissed.' It wasn't a sudden realization but more of a gradual one. 'Oh wow that's so good.' I opened my eyes and saw Adam, he had his eye's closed so he didn't see me looking at him. After a few seconds he very carefully broke the kiss and opened his eyes to see me looking at him. There was a sudden look of both fear and panic on his face.

"Oh god I...I thought you were asleep," he was backing away from me. "You must hate me. I hate myself." He was beginning to babble "Oh god no. No. No." He was now beginning to stand up. I think he was going to make a run for it. I had to act fast.

"Stop!" I said grabbing is arm. "I don't hate you. I could never hate you. Besides, I really liked it."

"Did you...Did you really?"

I didn't respond verbally, instead I pulled him to me wrapping my arms around him and gently kissing him. I opened my mouth letting Adam's tongue caress my own. I didn't really mean to, but the situation was so emotional that you couldn't help but get carried away. Without a doubt it was by far the best kiss I have ever experienced. The longer it lasted the longer I wanted it to last, and when we eventually did break apart the feeling of disappointment that it was over mixed with the feeling of absolute bliss at what I had just experienced was overwhelming.

"Wow. No wonder you are popular with the girls," he said smiling at me

"I have never kissed a girl like that. That was fantastic. Thank you Adam." Adam giggled.

"Thank me. Oh wow that is so cool." He lay down next to me and cuddled close.

"You know ever since I read you stories and poems about me I have been really confused about how I feel about you," I whispered into his ear, "I'm not confused anymore."

"Oh wow!" he whispered back and cuddled even closer. "What happens now?"

"I don't really know. I think we should play it a little by ear but I am definitely going to taste my Adam again before this night it out."

He giggled and rolled over and we were just about to kiss again when we heard rustling of the others coming our way.

"Later," I whispered. He looked disappointed so I added, "Remember we are sharing a room tonight." This brought a huge smile to his face. We both sat up and move slightly apart.

"What are you two smiling at?" Ben said flopping down next to us with Julie on his arm.

"Oh nothing. Just a private joke." It must have been the way I said it or the look on my face but this brought three very strange looks from Ben, Julie and Pete. Simon on the other hand smiled and nodded slightly before saying, "If you will excuse me I will go up to the house and make us some hot cocoa." He tried to pull away from Pete who had a firm grasp around his waist.

"Master?" Simon asked. Pete just pulled Simon closer and kissed him on the cheek before releasing him and watching him walk toward the house.

It was a few seconds before Pete realized that we were all staring at him. He turned slightly red, sat down and said to his defense, "I can't help it, I love him. Just don't tell him I said that, it's not right for a master."

This brought a round of giggles from all of us. The moment was so romantic that it took every ounce of will power I had not to grab Adam right then and there and take him in front of everyone.

"Did anyone see the eclipse finish?" Pete asked.

"We fell asleep," Julie responded. I giggled.

"Asleep huh?" I said picking a twig off her jeans. She turned bright red.

"That's not what I call it," Ben added. "What about you two?"

" actually did doze off there for a while. How about you Adam?"

"Same here," he said meekly. I think he really wanted me to tell everyone what we did, but I wasn't ready.

Ben and Julie seemed satisfied with my answer. Pete, on the other hand, I think realized what really went on and was struggling to contain his smile.

"We had better go up to the house before Simon sends out a search party," Pete said getting up slowly

We ambled slowly to the house. Once again it was taking every inch of self-control I had not to grab Adam and walk with him arm-in-arm as Ben and Julie were. I even had to avoid looking in his direction because I knew if our eyes met it would be all over or all ON depending on your way of looking at it.

I was at the back of the group with Adam just in front of me as we entered the house. As we passed through the front door I wrapped my arms around Adam and started kissing him in the neck.

"Patience," he whispered, "Patience!"

I eventually let him go. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life, my whole body screamed no.

"Arr perfect timing." Simon entered the living room with a tray of cups as we entered from the other door.

We sat and drank our cocoa while everyone else chatted. I, on the other hand, was lost in thought. I was Ok with the fact that I was probably gay - I took a quick look at Adam - make that definitely gay - but I was worried about the speed that it had all happened. Did I really like Adam or was it a just a reaction to my newly discovered feelings, and, is my confusion fair on Adam? Adam deserved to be loved; he needed to be loved; could I love him? I stole another glance at Adam, before I knew it the glance became a look, and the look became a stare.

"Goodnight everyone!" Ben stood and yawned, "Coming?" He asked Julie who stood saying goodnight. They both went up stairs together.

"You've been very quiet ever since we came inside," Pete said to me just after Ben and Julie left the room.

"I'm just a bit tired I guess," I answered, "I think I'll turn in."

"I think I'll join you...Um...I mean...that's a good idea." Adam looked a bit panicked at his mistake.

"Goodnight boys!"

Adam and I went upstairs together. Just as we got to our room, which was the one with two single beds that Ben and I stayed in last time, Simon appeared behind us.

"I think you two may be more comfortable in here." He led us to another room. "Everything you need is in the nightstand. Have fun boys, and be careful."

As soon as the door closed Adam jumped me, kissing me frantically and running his hands through my hair.

"Now who's being impatient?" I managed to say between kisses.

Eventually the kisses became less frantic and more passionate, a lot more passionate. We hadn't really gotten into the room, I was leaning with my back pressed hard against the door. With each kiss I became less and less aware of the world and more focused on the boy in front of me. I gently separated myself from his lips.

"We've seen the door, you want to check out the rest of the room?"


We looked around the room. There was a king size double bed with what looked like black satin sheets on it. There was a nightstand on one side of the bed, and a small light over the headboard. Adam walked over to the nightstand and opened the drawer. With a little smile he pulled out a tube of KY and a pair of handcuffs. I giggled a little.

"Maybe later," he said, and then he put the items back in the draw and closed it.

I walked over to the bed and stroked the sheets.

"I've never slept in a bed with satin sheets before," I commented.

Adam wrapped his arms around me from behind. I could feel his hardness pressed against me.

"Who said you will be getting any sleep tonight?" He whispered into my ear.

He pulled my T-shirt up over my head and began rubbing his hands up and down my back. I turned to face him and he started caressing my nipples. I helped Adam remove his T-shirt and started undoing his belt. Meanwhile he was undoing mine. We unzipped each other's flies and let our jeans fall to the ground. He was waring the red boxers that I had brought for him and I was waring black ones of the same type. Adam started rubbing the front of my boxers, and I instantly became harder than I ever had in my life. I couldn't stand it any more, I pushed him onto the bed and jumped on top of him. He flipped me over and sat on my chest pinning my arms beneath his legs.

"Me first," he said.

He leaned forward, kissed me on the lips, and then on the neck. He slid down my body and sucked first my left nipple, then my right. The sensation was so incredible I started moaning. He worked his way down my body and kissed me right on the end of my dick. Somehow we had both managed to loose our boxers. He kissed it again.

"Hmmm," I moaned.

Then he licked it and worked his way down to my balls and started sucking on them. He worked his way back up to my throbbing penis and then took the whole thing into his mouth. His mouth was so wet and so hot and the feeling he was giving me was so sensational that I knew that this moment was the one defining moment when everything made sense. I opened my eyes and looked down. The sight of Adam bobbing up and down sucking my penis sent me over the edge, and before I could warn him I exploded into his mouth. I lost count of the amount of times I shot into Adam's waiting mouth. He swallowed it all, and when I was completely spent he came up next to me and opened his mouth to say something, but before he could I kissed him, tasting my cum on his lips.

I repeated everything that Adam had done to me, except I paid a lot of attention to his bellybutton, licking first around the edge then sticking my tong right in it. Adam obviously enjoyed this because he started thrusting up and down. I left his bellybutton and attacked is penis with a vengeance, I sucked for all my life but before he came I had an idea. I stopped and came up next to him.

"It's don't have to," he said.

"No, please," and I gave him my best look. He got the hint.

"You really want me to?"

"I need you to."

He reached over and took the KY out of the nightstand drawer.

"It's supposed to hurt the first time. Are you sure?"

"More sure than I have ever been about anything in my life."

Adam moved me into position and put some KY onto his fingers. He slowly worked one finger into me. It hurt at first, but as the pain eased it was replaced with a sensation of absolute pleasure. After some time of working first one, then two, fingers into me he pulled them out and said, "I think you're ready."

He positioned his penis right over my awaiting virgin hole. I felt his cock head push into me.

"Ow...Ooh...Don't stop please!"

He pushed harder and entered me completely. The pain was suddenly replaced with the most intoxicating feeling of pleasure I have ever felt.

"Go slow," I panted.

And that is exactly what he did. He slowly pulled out leaving only his cock head in me then slowly pushed all the way inside me again. He did this over and over again picking up the pace with each stroke. It started in my toes and fingers and spread quickly through my body, and at the same instant as I empted everything I had onto the sheets, Adam shot everything he had into me. Adam pulled out of me and we lay there holding each other totally exhausted.

I woke the next morning to find Adam still asleep wrapped around me, his head resting on my chest. I have to admit I never felt anything more satisfying in my life. It was in heaven. It was really at that moment lying there listening to him breathing that I decided that this was what I wanted, and I decided right then and there to devote myself completely to Adam. I don't know if it was love, but if it wasn't it was something very close to it.

"Morning gorgeous. Comfortable?" I said hearing his breathing change.

"Um...morning, very." He changed position slightly, cuddling closer.

I kissed him on top of the head but before anything more could happen there was a knock on our door and Simon walked it.

"Morning boy's, sleep well?" He said with a rye smile on his face.

"Very," Adam said moving up to me and giving me one of those kisses that always sends me into a mind spin.

Simon walked over to the window and opened the curtains flooding the room with sunlight. He was saying something but I was completely lost in Adam's kiss. I thought that we should at least acknowledge Simon, so I reluctantly broke the kiss.

"Um...did you say something?" He laughed.

"I said, 'breakfast will be ready in about half an hour.' Oh and by the way, the shower is free and it's big enough for two. I'll leave you two to get ready." He left us alone, and after a few minutes of just lying there I asked, "Do you want to?"


"The shower silly?"

"Oh...Oh yea great idea."

With that we slowly separated ourselves from one another, grabbed some clothes, and headed for the shower. With the water falling over us I took my time to really study his body. He was smooth with not a scrap of hair below his neck. I was letting my hands wander all over his body.

"Horrible isn't it? My body I mean," Adam said shyly.

He really surprised me with this statement.

"Adam, you are, without a doubt, the most beautiful creature in all the universe."

"But I have no body hair."

"Minor imperfection that will be rectified in time."

"Why are you so nice to be?"

"Because I like you and you're letting me," I replied.

He giggled and started kissing me.

We finished up washing each other, letting our hands discover each other's bodies. I have to say it was one of the most erotic situations I have ever been in. We dried each other and even dressed each other. I have to admit that this was not really successful, but it was a lot of fun.

We eventually headed downstairs and walked straight into thunderous applause as we entered the kitchen.

"What?" I asked.

"That was some performance last night," Ben declared grinning like a madman. "I guess you were making a different kind of music eh?"

"You heard us?" I said incredulously.

They all started nodding. I felt every part of my body turn red. Adam wrapped his arms around me and said, "I'm waiting for the encore."

Everyone started laughing as I felt my blush deepen even further.

"I'm sure after a such a rigorous workout you two must be starving," Pete said, "Sit down and have some breakfast."

I didn't think it was possible, but I felt myself turn an even deeper shade of red. Everyone else was in hysterics. It was about this stage that I decided to just go for it and I turned and gave Adam a passionate kiss. When we finally broke the kiss everyone else had stoped laughing as was staring at us. Adam was also staring at me with a dreamy look in his eyes.

"Hungry beautiful?" I said reaching up and gently stroking his face.

"Uh... Oh ...A little." The spell was broken and it was Adam's turn to blush.

We sat down to an amazing breakfast; eggs, bacon, sausages, hash browns. After breakfast we moved to the living room and just sat around chatting. It must have been about twenty minutes before Simon asked if he could have a talk with Adam in private. The rest of us continued to chat.

"He's got it bad," Julie said changing the current subject we were talking about.

"What?" I asked.

"Every few minutes you look at the door."

"Do not!" I was beginning to feel a little defensive.

"You can't fool me Seb," Ben said "You're missing him aren't you?"

"Ok, ok I may have fallen for Adam a little."

"A little?" Pete joined in.

"Where are they? They've been gone for over an hour!"

Suddenly they both appeared at the doorway.

"Missed me huh?"

I went to him and before giving him yet another kiss I said, "I thought Simon had kidnapped you and decided to keep you for himself."

I know we had been kissing a lot lately but I really liked the way he tasted. If it was at all possible I would kiss him 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It wasn't long before I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Simon.

"When you have a second can we have a quick chat?"

"It might be a while," I said and went back to kissing Adam.

I quickly broke it.

"Back soon babe," I said and followed Simon into the next room.

"Please take a seat Sebastian, this wont take long."

"Sebastian? That's very formal," I said sitting on the sofa, "You've got me a little worried now. What's up?"

"It's nothing to worry about. I just wanted to have a little chat with you. How do you feel about the last couple of days?"

"To be honest they have been a bit of a blur."

"Hmmm. And how do you feel now?"


"Just fine?"

"Ok, in truth I have never felt this way before. I can't really describe it."

"You know Adam is absolutely nuts about you?"

"I know. I really like him too."

"Sebastian, are you gay?"

"I...don't...I must...yes."

It was the first time I had said it out loud. It was really the first time I had dared to admit it to myself. Simon came over to me and gave me a hug realizing what had just happened. We continued to talk for what seemed like ages. For the most part we talked about Adam and how he would need a lot of support. We also talked a fair bit about my newly discovered feelings.

"You really do like him don't you?"

"I more than like him. I really think I love him."

"I know you think you are Sebastian, but I think you should refrain from telling Adam until you are really sure yourself."

"Ok, if you think it's in Adam's best interest. I would do anything to help Adam."

"I know you would Seb, that's what makes you such a special person. But please make sure you don't hurt yourself in the process." He paused letting what he had just said sink in. "What say we go join the others? It's nearly lunch time and they are bound to be getting hungry."

"Now that you mention it so am I. Simon...thank you, this really means a lot to me."

"Your welcome Seb. Now lets go get something to eat."

We went back to join the others only to discover that half of the crew was missing. Adam and Julie were sitting on the sofa with their feet up on the coffee table and the other two where nowhere in sight.

"What's going on here?" Simon asked.

"The boys were hungry and decided to make lunch," Julie giggled.

"We have been hearing some interesting noises from the kitchen," Adam added.

"Oh god. I had better go view the destruction."

Simon wandered off towards the kitchen. I walked around the coffee table and flopped down next to Adam on the sofa.

"See told you," Julie said.

"He is isn't he?" Adam giggled.

"What?" I asked.

"Your a flirt," Julie said, "and you are doing it right now."

"Am not!"

"Yes you are but I don't mind when you are doing it with me."

It was true I was flirting with Adam but I couldn't help myself. Adam flashed his baby blue eyes at me and the world disappeared. I got completely lost in his eyes. When the world finally began to take some shape again I realised that everyone was back in the room and staring at us. Both of us started blushing.

"You two just had a moment didn't you?" Ben said putting a plate of sandwiches on the table.

"Yea we did." Adam said blushing even more.

After lunch we decided it was time to go and after saying goodbye we jumped into Ben's car for the trip back to the city.

"What have you all got planned for the rest of the day?" Pete said with his head stuck through the front passenger's window.

"My parents are having a black tie dinner party tonight and I am making Ben come to keep me company."

"Ben in a tux! You have to get pictures Julie," Simon said through the rear driver's side window. "What are you two going to get up to?"

"Well ..." I said, "... I hear a rumour that my boyfriends parents are away for the weekend, so I was thinking of just hanging around his place." I heard a little gasp from Adam. "If that's ok?"

"Oh god yes, that's more than ok."

"You two be careful now," Pete said, "And Julie, can you make sure I get a copy of the photos?"

"I asked you not to say anything," Ben moaned

"Oops," she said giggling.

We said our final goodbyes and headed home. We were about twenty minutes into the trip when I sensed that there was something bothering Adam. I was fairly sure I knew what it was, but I wasn't positive. I decided to take a chance.

"Yes I meant it."

"Meant what?" Ben asked.

"When I called Adam my boyfriend."

"You really mean it?" Adam was thinking out loud.

"Of course I mean it. When it comes to you I mean everything I say." This caused Julie to sigh from the front seat, "That is what was bothering you wasn't it?"

"How did you know?"

"I don't know, I guess we are just in sync."

Adam grinned like a Cheshire cat and cuddled close. We basically stayed that way for the rest of the trip home.

As we pulled up to Adam's place Julie let out a gasp.

"3:15! I've only got 4 hours to get ready."

"We had better get you home then," Ben said sarcastically.

"Hay guys, I just want to thank you for everything," I interrupted.

"Not a problem man. We sort of owed you anyway."

"Ok, thanks again and I'll ring you tomorrow."

We jumped out of the car, and just before they pulled away Adam turned and yelled, "Hay Julie, don't forget the photos. I'd like to see Ben in a tux too."

Ben groaned .

"Of course I wont. You two have fun tonight."

As they drove away I turned and followed Adam up the path leading to his front door. Just before we got there I placed a hand on his shoulder.

"Don't worry. If she's home we will deal with it. She can't hurt you any more, I won't allow it."

"How ..."

"In sync baby, in sync."

As it turned out nobody was home. He led me into the living room and turned on the stereo. Light classical music filled the room. We didn't speak, but our actions spoke volumes. We lay down on the sofa together making our bodies one. Just being there together was far more powerful than anything physical we could have done. It felt so good and so comfortable that it wasn't long before we were both fast asleep.

We both woke up with a start when we heard Katie yelling.

"What the hell is going on here!" the bitch bellowed.

I felt Adam recoil into me and start to shake.

"Oh hi Katie," I said casually.

"Are you two queer for each other?"

"And all thanks to you," I said sarcastically drawing Adam even closer to me.

Katie let out a little scream and ran off slamming the front door as she left.

"Round one to us. Are you ok?" He was shaking.

"Adam are you ok?" He didn't respond. I was getting a little worried but had an idea of how to make him come around so I started kissing him on the neck. It worked and he started to come around.


"Are you ok?"

"Yea I'm ok." He sat up, put head in his hands, and started rocking. I sat up and moved next to him. I wrapped my arms around him and drew him into me.

"Adam it's ok. She can't hurt you any more and she will never be able to hurt us. I will not allow it."

"She will tell everyone at school that I'm gay and they will hate me, make fun of me, beat me up"

"Then I would tell everyone that I'm also gay and you're my boyfriend and if they touch or hurt you they will have me to deal with. Ben would back us up and when he's finished they would have to face me again. I doubt it would bother anyone."

"She will tell my parents and they will throw me out on the street."

"Then you will come live with me. Adam, she has tormented you for the last time. She is a very sick person who needs a great deal of medication." This brought a small smile.

"Do you think your mom would take me in?"

"Of course she would. Besides she wouldn't have much of a choice...Oh shit"


"My mom, I'm supposed to go out to dinner with her tonight. She had a job interview yesterday and we are going out to celebrate."

"She got the job?"

"Don't know. We do this before any big news, that way if it's good news we have an excuse to do it again. and if it's bad at least we had a nice dinner. Can I use your phone?"


I phoned my mom and after the usual mom stuff was out of the way - you know, the did you have a good time, were you good, did you stay out of trouble type of stuff - I asked her if Adam could join us. She was really cool about it and by the end of the conservation she actually insisted that he come.

"Thanks mom. Love you. Well be home soon." I hung up and wandered back into the living room.

"So, I'll see you later," he said as I entered the room.

"Nope, you're coming with us."

"I can't, Katie's hidden all my clothes."

"So let's see if we can find your clothes. You're coming with us, and besides you can always wear some of mine."

We searched everywhere and eventually found them hidden in boxes labelled 'Morten Inc' in the attic. We carried them down to his bedroom and began to unpack.

"You know I think this is the company my mom had the interview with," I said opening a box. "What position did she apply for?"

"Marketing manager."

He began to laugh.

"What?" I asked.

"It's my step-dad's company. He would have been the one who interviewed your mom."

"Small world," I also began to laugh.

I continued to pull clothes out of the boxes and eventually I pulled out a pair of bikini briefs, blue satin bikini briefs from Fagioni. I held them up looking at Adam questioningly.

"They're not for girls," he said kind of defensively.

"Oh I know," I said, "It's amazing what you can find on the Internet."

"Truly amazing. What are you smiling at?"

"I'm just picturing you wearing them." I closed my eyes ""

"You can be such a goof." He was giggling at me. "Hey, how did you know I got them off the Internet?"

"Easy ..." I said, "... mine are red."

"Now that's a sexy thought!"

I made a move for him, he jumped back easily evading me but I got him on the second grab. We wrestled for a while each one of us trying to be on top. Eventually I pinned him.

"You know you are wearing them tonight."

"Only if you wear yours."

"You're on, but if we don't hurry up we will never get there."

I rolled off of him and in the process he managed to pinch me on the ass. I went and laid down on the bed. I was on my stomach with my chin on my hands.

"Time to get changed."

"Are you going to watch?"



"Yep. Come on, get on with it. We're running late." He started grinning at me.


He went over to the stereo and after selecting an appropriate CD he started stripping to the music. First he slowly removed his T-shirt. The left arm, the right arm then slowly working it up his chest and finally up over his head in one quick motion making his hair fly in all directions. He quickly removed his belt before undoing the button on his jeans and slowly pulling down the zipper. He paused holding his jeans for dramatic effect before letting them drop. I couldn't help but gasp as they hit the floor. Needless to say I was rock hard and matters where not helped much by what happened next. He ran his fingers around the elastic of his boxers teasing me before in one slick motion pulling them over his hips, letting them drop to the floor and stepping out of them.

He was standing in front of me completely naked except for socks. I reached out to him but he playfully slapped my hand away. He walked seductively over to where the satin bikini briefs lay and bent down to pick them up giving me the perfect view of his cute butt. He once again paused for dramatic effect wiggling his ass at me. I reached out again but he was just out of reach. He stepped into the briefs and pulled them up. I nearly came when he rubbed his hand over is ass smoothing out any imperfections in the finish. I started to get up but he pushed me back down on the bed.

"No fair."

"We have to go soon you said!"

"God I want you!"

"You will just have to wait."

"Don't want to," I said sounding like I spoiled three-year-old.


He selected an expensive looking blue shirt and black trousers and put them on. A wave of disappointment came over me when the sight of Adams satin briefs finally disappeared. He walked over to the mirror that was hanging on the back of his open closet door grabbing a comb along the way.

"God that was so hot," I said as he ran the comb trough his hair.

"You asked for it," he said taking a step back from the mirror and making final adjustments. "Ok I'm ready. Lets go."

We quickly left and headed for my place arriving about ten minutes later.

"Hi Mom, where home," I yelled as we came through the door.

"There's no need to yell," she said coming through the living room door into the hallway.

"Sorry Mom!"

"What took you so long?"

"Adam had to get changed."

"Well I can see it was worth the wait. Very smart."

"Um...thanks Mrs J." Adam said blushing a little

"Mom do I have time for a quick shower?" Without thinking I elbowed Adam in the ribs and added "A cold one."

"Why do you want a cold shower?" Mom asked.

"Um...I'm just hot from the walk over here." I offered as an excuse. It didn't help that Adam was giggling.

"Oh ok," she said a little perplexed, "Just make it quick, we have to be at the restaurant in forty minutes."

"That's plenty of time," I said and ran up the stairs towards the bathroom, stripping as I went. I know it was pretty lame, but I had to get a little of my own back.

After the shower I stood naked in front of my closet surveying the rack of clothes. I had to make my choice carefully. It had to be perfect. I finally settled on my dark red silk shirt that Mom had brought me for Christmas last year, a pair of black trousers and, of course, my red satin bikini briefs.

"Hurry up Sebastian. We're going to be late," I heard Mom call.

"Coming," I yelled back.

I quickly ran a comb through my hair, and just before walking out the door I dabbed on a little of the Hugo Boss cologne a former girlfriend had given me.

"There you are," Mom said as I walked into the living room.

Adam, who was facing away from the door, audibly gasped when he turned and saw me.

"Worth the wait?" I ventured striking what I thought to be a sexy pose.

"Acceptable," Mom said with a grin.

"Oh god yes," Adam said in a voice that was just above a whisper.

Mom's expression changed to one of realization I thought but it disappeared quickly.

"Let's go," she said subtlety shaking her head.

The restaurant was great. The food was fantastic and the company was out of this world. Mom even let us have a glass of wine with the meal. It was a very special evening.

Mom was having a coffee after the desert which for Adam and I was a large piece of chocolate gateaux that we shared. I thought the time was right so I asked, "Mom can I say at Adam's place tonight. His parents are away and I'd like to keep him company." I was babbling a little.

"I don't know," She said and then as cool as a cumber said "I wouldn't let you say the night at a girlfriends when her parents are away. Why should I let you stay at your boyfriends when his parents are away?"

My heart quickly sank to my stomach and Adam suddenly turned very pale.

"So I'm right?" She said, "It's alright boys, I'm not upset or angry."

"H...How?" I managed to choke out.

"Oh a mother knows. Anyway you two make a cute couple."

We both turned bright red.

"Mom!" I said a little too loud and the other people in the restaurant turned to look at us. Mom just started laughing.

"Ok, I'll let you."

"Let me what?"

"Stay at my place silly," Adam said jabbing me playfully in the ribs.

"Besides ..." Mom added, "...I'm guessing there isn't much you two don't know about each other already."


"Mrs J!"

Once again everyone was staring at us.

"I see I'm right on that count too," She said laughing, "Come on, let's go before we make a scene."

She paid for the meal and we made a quiet exit from the restaurant.

"Thanks for understanding Mom," I said as we pulled into the driveway.

"I won't pretend that I understand, but I won't stand in the way of my son's happiness either."

"Love you Mom."

"I love you too Sebastian. Now get out of here before I start to cry."

We both jumped out of the car.

"Sebastian," she called winding down her window. I leaned through the window and gave her a hug.

"Thanks Mom. Adam is very special to me."

"You do care for him don't you?"

"Yea I really do."

"Well go on then, go be with your man."

I gave her a kiss on the cheek and went to join Adam. We stood there together watching Mom drive away.

"Your Mom is really great. There aren't many Mom's who would be that cool about find out that her son know."

"Yeah who know."

We walked up to Adam's house holding hands. As soon as the door closed behind us we were all over each other, kissing each other frantically to start with before settling in to a long passionate kiss that sent shivers up my spine. The Kiss suddenly stopped when a bright flash engulfed us. Katie was standing there with a camera and she took another picture of us holding each other.

"Oh, can you make me a copy?" Adam said to her.

I was never more proud of Adam.

"No wait let's do this properly," he said and shifted position in my arms striking a sexy pose. I followed suite.

"That's so disgusting," She gasped and stormed off into next room.

"You will be seeing a lot more of this from now on. So get used to it," He yelled after her.

"My boy standing up to the evil sister. Being brave, I couldn't be more proud."

"Well you said she couldn't hurt me any more, right."

"Nope I won't let her."

We stood there for ages our arms wrapped around each other just staring into each other's eyes. The flash went off again.

"That one's going to school." She sneered.

"Awesome." I said, "Can I get an advance copy?"

She surprised both of by screaming and disappeared into the next room.

"Let's go up stairs. It's too noisy down here."

"Ok. You've seen mine, I'm dying to see yours."

As we walked up the stairs we could hear Katie throwing what could only be described as a temper tantrum in the next room. I could tell that Adam was a little afraid. It was only to be expected, you can not loose your fear of someone overnight, especially when you have been a victim of what only could be described a mental terrorism for god knows how long. He was being so brave, I was so proud of him.

Though I have to admit I was a little afraid myself. Not of Katie, and not really of what everyone's reaction would be to Adam and I being together, but of what would happen tomorrow or the day after when Katie and Adam were finally left alone together.

"I think I'll be ok," he said closing his bedroom door. Katie was still carrying on downstairs, but with the door closed you could hardly hear it. It sounded more like someone with their TV up too loud.

"You are worried about me aren't you?" He continued.

"Yea a little. How did you know?"

It had gone ominously quiet down stairs.

"I just sensed it. I think this in-sync stuff works both ways. What's is it?"

"I was just thinking about what is going to happen next week or next month when you and Katie are alone together."

" ..." he trailed off.

I could see I had him thinking about it now. I mentally kicked myself I shouldn't have said anything.

"... Um...lets now worry about that now. I have my boyfriend alone in my bedroom, my parents are away and he owes me a strip show."

It was then we heard the unmistakeable sound of a door locking, Adam's door locking.

"Your in for it now," Katie laughed hysterically. "I'm ringing my Dad. He'll deal with you. Beat you up and throw for sissy arse out on the street."

Adam ran to the door and tried to open it. When that failed he started banging on the door and crying.

"Open the door. Please don't the d ...o ...o... r."

Meanwhile from the other side of the door I could hear Katie chanting over and over again.

"Throw your sissy arse out on the street."

I reached out and put my hand on his shoulder. He immediately turned and fell against my chest. sobbing hysterically.

I snapped and yelled, "Shut-up Bitch. You had better pray I don't find a way out of this room tonight, for if I do you will wish you were never born."

"There's no way out," She said sounding a little afraid. Good.

"Stupid girl," I said drawing closer to the door and trying to sound menacing. "The hinges are on the inside of the door, all I need is something to pop them with and there is always the window. The second floor isn't too far to jump from."

She didn't respond, and I heard footsteps running down the stairs. I turned my full and undivided attention to Adam. His head was buried deep into my chest and he was sobbing hard. I sat him down on the bed and I just held him. I held him for a very long time.

Eventually he calmed down and said, "I wish I knew what it was about her that gets to me too."

He had read my mind.

"Maybe we will find out in the morning."

"Oh parents...I don't know if I can handle this."

"You don't have to handle anything. We will handle it together." I put extra emphasis on the 'we' "Plus remember you can always live at my place."

"That would be nice." He gave crotch a gentle squeeze.

"I see you're feeling a bit better."

"Uh huh...I'm still waiting."

"You still want me to put on a show for you?"

"Uh huh."

He gave is best puppy dog look. I couldn't say no, even if I wanted to.

"Ok, you get comfortable and I'll go put on some music. Um...Adam you will have to let go of me."

"Na, don't want to. Never want to."

I gave him a quick kiss and peeled myself away from him. I went to the stereo and put on some random music. When I turned around Adam was lying on his bed facing me, his eyes glistening with lust. Before I started I quickly kicked off my shoes and socks.

I started by seductively untucking myself, each motion in time with the music. Next I unbuttoned my shirt one button at a time but I didn't remove my shirt. I stood there for a second teasing him by softly rubbing my nipples. I slowly ran my hands down my body to my waist, took my belt off, and draped it over Adams head like I had seen in the movies. Then I slowly undid my trouser button and undid my fly letting him get a little peak but not enough to satisfy. His eyes were wild with passion. I new it wouldn't be long before he jumped me and I doubted my ability to fend him off.

I turned around facing away from him and let my trousers drop. I was still wearing my shirt so he could not see too much. I stood there for a while moving with the music before first reaching to the sky letting him see everything, then I dropped my arms and let the shirt fall to the floor. No sooner did the shirt hit the floor than I felt two hands on my ass that slowly tracked around to the front drawing me into Adam's body.

"God you're so beautiful."

I swivelled in his embrace and kissed him on the lips. I started unbuttoning his shirt. He got the hint and before long we were both standing there in our underwear. It must have been quite a sight, two teenage boys standing holding each other in the middle of the room both dressed in satin bikini briefs, one red and one blue.

Our lips joined together and we feel back onto the bed. We lay there kissing for a very long time before parting and smiling at each other. I knew he wanted to suck me and I knew he knew I wanted to suck him, so without speaking a word we moved into a 69 position. I lay there for a while gently caressing the object of my desire encased in satin. Adam was doing the exact same thing to me at the exact same time. Then at precisely the same moment we took our still-satin-encased members into each other's mouths. The feeling at both ends was out of this world, and I almost came right then and there. We slowly worked each other's wet underwear off and in unison began licking our shafts. We were licking it like a lollypop before teasing each other but flicking our cock heads with our tongues. I could taste the pre-cum that was streaming from him and boy did it taste good. I wanted more, I needed more, so I engulfed his erect penis in one motion. Once again everything I was doing to Adam he was doing to me at the exact same time. We were sucking for all our worth, and it wasn't long before we both exploded into each other's waiting mouths.

It wasn't a normal everyday type of orgasm, it was the type of orgasm that ripped through your body leaving you totally ruined. We lay there for a while our softening members still in each other's mouths unable to move. Eventually I turned around to face the gorgeous creature that had just given me the best blowjob there could ever be.

When we were both at eye level I licked my lips and said, "Nectar of the gods."

"Wow...that was ..." He was at a loss for words. I was at a loss for words.

"I know, that was...Wow."

We lay there for a little while cuddling, just being together.

"You know ..." he said in a far off dreamy kind of voice, "...some day someone is going to ask what it was like when we really did each other properly for the first time and whatever I tell them I am never going to be able to give what we just did together justice."

"The only thing I can think to say is that it was wow!"

Adam started to giggle. I love making him laugh. I moved closer to him and began nibbling on his bottom lip. The giggle quickly became a moan.

"If you're not careful you're are going to get me going again."

"That's the idea," I said licking his earlobe, "I'm already there."

"I know, I can feel it...Seb?"


"Take me...please."

I paused for a second and looked him directly in the eyes.

" you have something?"

"There's Vaseline on the duchess over there."

I got out of bed and grabbed the Vaseline. I turned and stood before him knowing the answer to the question I was about to ask, but it had to be asked.

"Are you sure?"

He nodded

"God yes."

I got back into bed, kissed him, and said, "Back in a sec."

"I hope not."

I slowly moved down his body until I came eye level to what could only be described as the perfect bubble butt. I berried my face between is cheeks and begin licking his entrance way.

"What are you doing?...Hmmm...Oh...that feels so...Oh...god."

That was all the encouragement I needed, and I entered him with my tongue trying to get as deep inside him as possible. It wasn't long before I realised that I needed to get further inside him, so I put some jelly on my fingers and replaced my tongue with first one finger and then two. Adam was moaning loudly and started bucking his hips.

"I'm ready...please do it."

His wish was my command. I removed my fingers, smeared some jelly over my penis and placed the head of my penis at the start of his entrance way. Not wanting to hurt him I took my time and slowly pushed into him, eventually getting all the way inside. It felt like Adam's insides were on fire, it was that hot.

Once completely inside him I paused and asked, "Are you ok?"

"Fantastic...take it slow Ok?"

I slowly began pulling out and pushing back into him. Each time I went into him Adam let out a loud moan. After a while I slowly began to pick up the pace.

"I'm going to...soon," I warned him.

Adam did something, moving is anus in such a way that immediately sent me in to my second super strong orgasm of the night and once again at precisely the same time Adam did the same. I collapsed onto Adam completely exhausted, my softening penis still inside him. I lay there for a long time unable to move, Adam had actually fallen asleep beneath me. Not wanting to wake him, I carefully rolled off him. He did stir but only to change position to use my chest as a pillow. We both drifted off into a deep slumber.

"What the FUCK is going on here?"

We both were instantly awake.

"Told you Daddy. They've been doing it all night."

It took me a few seconds to focus. There was a guy standing in the doorway. I assumed that this was Mr. Church.

"I want you two downstairs in five minutes. Adam you have got some big explaining to do boy."

Adam cringed.

Mr. Church went downstairs and we could hear Katie saying, "Told you Daddy. They've been doing IT all night. I could hear them. I think you should tell both of them to leave and never come back."

If Mr. Church responded we couldn't hear it. I got up and started looking for my clothes, which were strewn all over the room. Adam continued to lie in bed staring at the ceiling. I found everything except my underwear, which I remembered was probably somewhere down the end of the bed. I lifted the sheet looking for them and I found both pairs wedged in the corner by his feet. He was still staring into space so to snap him out of it I started sucking on his big toe.

"Hay ..." it worked, "... first you stick your tong in my, now your sucking my toe. You're kind of kinky aren't you?"

"The kinkiest." I stood up, brought his underwear up to my face, took a big whiff and threw them at Adam. "Come on, get up. We had better get down stairs."

The smile suddenly faded from Adams face.

"I don't think I want to."

"Hay, don't worry so much. Remember if worst comes to worst you can always come live with me. Would that be such a bad thing?"

"No...No it wouldn't." A slight smile returned to his face.

I started to put on my underwear.

"Hold on a sec," Adam said jumping out of bed and rummaging around on of the boxes. He pulled out two pair of black underwear in the same style we had been wearing last night. "Try these on."

"Who's being kinky now," I said pulling on the fresh briefs.

A few minutes later we were fully dressed and standing at the top of the stairs.

I turned to Adam.

"Remember whatever happens there are always options. Play it cool Ok?"

He took a deep breath, "Ok."

I took Adam by the hand and we headed down the stairs. Everyone was staring at us as we entered the room.

"Adam, what was going on upstairs?" Mr. Church said calmly.

Adam remained silent.

"Come on boy speak up."

I opened my mouth to say something, but before I could get anything out Katie started up again and things went kind of crazy for a few minutes.

"They were fucking Daddy, all night. They're faggots. Dirty, dirty faggots."

She came right up into my face and yelled, "faggot!"

"Katie, that's enough!"

"Sissy!" she was now in Adam's face.

"Katie, remember you introduced us," I said with a little sneer on my face.

This was a mistake; Katie immediately turned and kicked me right in the nuts. All hell suddenly broke loose, I quickly dropped to the floor in a lot of pain as Katie continued to kick me. Adam dove on top of me trying to protect me but only succeeded in receiving his own share of kicks. Adam was screaming for her to stop, Katie was yelling something about death and faggots, and both Mr. and Mrs. Church were saying something I couldn't make out.

Mr. Church then physically restrained his daughter and placed her on the couch. He then told Adam to get off of me and sit on the chair, which he did reluctantly. As he was getting up Katie picked up a lamp and threw it at us. It hit me in the head, opening a gash on my forehead.

"That is enough!" Mrs Church suddenly shouted, gaining control of the situation.

I slowly sat up and put my head between my legs breathing deeply. Blood was running down the side of my face but it was the throbbing pain between my legs that was bothering me the most.

"What's this all about?"

"Mom I..." Adam burst into tears. His mom went to her son and embraced him.

"He's such a sissy. You should get rid of him, then we would be happy."

"That's it!" Mr. Church turned to his daughter, "Go to your room. Now!"

"No, it's him that should be leaving."

"Now girl! I want to talk to these two alone."

Mr. Church escorted Katie to her room and returned a few minutes later with a towel and an ice pack.

"Thank you sir," I said taking the ice pack and the towel. I slowly got up and deposited my self on the couch.

"Now you two, what's all this about?" He asked again.

Adam was in no state to respond so I took charge of the situation, "Mr. Church first I have to ask a question."

"Yes son?"

I could tell he wasn't really in the mood for questions.

"I know Adam is actually your step-son but do you consider Adam to be your son?"

"Of course I do!"

"Even though he is gay?"

Adam cringed

"Yes. Being gay has nothing to do with it."

"Even though we are together?"

He did cringe a little when I said that.

"Adam you are my son no matter what, and don't you ever think other wise."

"That's really good," I said, and then proceeded to tell them the whole story.

When I got to the part of the suicide attempt both of their faces dropped. This really shocked them, but they let me continue. When I had finished there was stunned silence. Mr. Church walked over to Adam and lifted his wrist exposing the bandage.

"So it's all true?" Mr. Church asked.

"Yes sir."

"Oh Adam," his mom started crying, "Why didn't you say anything?"

"She told me you would hate me...and...and I believed her."

"Adam, we both love you very much. Always remember that."

Mr Church said, "What do we do now?"

"May I make a suggestion?" I asked.

"Of course son."

"We both have a friend who can help."

"Simon, yes," Adam said picking his head up a little.

"Who's Simon?" Asked Mrs Church.

"Simon is the...arr...uncle of Ben a friend of mine. He's a psychiatrist."

"Psychiatrist! I don't think we need to go that far."

"She drove Adam to make a suicide attempt dear," Mrs Church said holding her son close.

"I suppose you're right. Sebastian do you have his phone number?"

"No sir but I can..."

"I've got it," Adam interrupted, "Simon gave it to me just in case. It's upstairs, I'll go get it!"

"No son you stay here, and Sebastian, I think we should call your parents too."

"Ok," I said a little reluctantly, "It's 555-4283."

"Do they know know?"

"It's just mom and me and she guessed at dinner last night."

"Good. That will make things a bit easier," said Mr Church leaving the room.

"I'll go make us a cup of tea."

All of a sudden we were both alone. Adam got up from the chair and came and sat next to me on the couch.

"Are you alright?"

"A little sore and I have a bit of a headache, but I'll live."

"I hope you're not too sore for this." He leaned over and gave me a quick kiss.

"I'll never be too sore for that."

"Thank you Sebastian. You really saved me in so many ways. I love you so much."

Before I could respond he kissed me. We sat there in a deep embrace which was only broken by Mr. Church saying to his wife with a rye smile on this face, "Somehow I think we got the 'G' rated version."

We broke apart and both turned bright red.

"Sebastian, your mother is on her way. Strange though when I rang this Simon fellow this guy answered the phone and said that he was a little tied up at the moment and would ring me back."

Adam and I looked at each other and started giggling, but before we could try and explain the phone started to ring. We were alone again for a short while and just sat close to one another enjoying being together.

Mr. Church was still on the phone when my mom arrived.

"You really like being the knight in shining armor, don't you?" Mom said after the initial pleasantries were over between her and Mrs. Church and an abridged version of the story had been told.

"Mom!" I said rolling my eyes at her.

"I really did know he had it in him. You know it isn't completely out of character," mom continued. "What happens now?"

"Well firstly we get Adam out of here for tonight," Mr. Church said coming into the room and making everyone jump. "Then we get Katie some help starting tomorrow morning. Oh hello Gillian."

"Bill, how are you holding up?"

"Alright considering."

They were talking like old friends.

"Oh Gillian and I have been meeting every few days for the last couple of weeks," Mr Church explained obviously picking up on the confused look on Adam's and my face, "Gillian has just agreed to be our new marketing manager."

"You got the job, excellent!" I was truly happy for Mom; she had wanted to take a step up for a while.

"It is going to mean a lot more travel. Bill and I have discussed it and considering you two's special situation we think it best that you stay here while I am out of town. As long as it is Ok with you Sue?"

"Of course. I have been trying to get Sebastian to stay for dinner for ages. He'll have to try my cooking now," Mrs. Church said smiling.

It was amazing how calmly everyone was taking the whole situation.

"What about...her?" Adam spoke for the first time in what seemed like ages.

"Well," Mr, Church said drawing everyone closer and speaking very quietly, "I'm afraid that 'SHE' may have to go away for a little while, but Simon will assess that in the morning. He thinks that it is not really safe for you to stay here tonight and I tend to agree."

"It's just as well I bought you that double bed last year Sebastian."

"Mom!" I said. She could really shock me sometimes.

"So it's settled then, good," Mrs. Church said, "Let's go upstairs and get your things together Adam."

"Ok Mom." Mrs. Church gave her son a little hug as they went upstairs.

"I want to thank you Sebastian," Mr Church said, "I don't know how we will ever be able to repay you."

"There's no need Mr Church. I just couldn't let anything happen to know!"

"I do son, and please, call me Bill."

Adam came back into the living room a few seconds later holding a couple of bags and we made ready to leave. Just as we were heading for the door Mr. Church said, "Make sure you both look sad, at least until you get to the car."

"Ok," we agreed.

So with a dejected look on our faces we headed to the car. As we passed through the gate I glanced back at the house to see Katie standing in one of the second floor windows looking very smug. If only she knew.

We stoped and picked up a couple of pizzas on the way home, neither Adam nor I had eaten in a very long time. We spent the rest of the evening just unwinding, it had been a very stressful couple of days.

"Oh man I'm exhausted!" I stretched and yawned.

"I know the feeling." Adam shifted from sitting on the sofa to lying down using my lap as a pillow.

I was sitting there stroking his hair when my mom came into the room.

"Maybe you two should think about turning in."

"I am pretty tired Mrs. Jones."

"Please Adam call me Gillian or Mom after all you are part of the family now."

"Thanks Mrs...Mom," He looked up at me, "Take me to bed my love."

"Night Mom," I said plaintively.

Mom hugged us both as we left the room. We stood there in the middle of what I now thought of as our bedroom staring into each other's eyes.

"I don't think I have the energy."

"Me either," I said helping him off with his t-shirt.

We undressed each other and got into bed.

"Sebastian...thank you, you have saved me in so many ways."

"I had no choice I ..."

"I know you don't have to say it," he interrupted.

"Yes I do Adam, I need to." I took a deep breath and looked him in the eyes, "Adam, I love you. No more than that. My body no longer belongs to me, it's yours. My heart is yours and my soul is yours. Your are the reason, the only reason, I continue to breath. I love you Adam Church, more than words can say."
