Hi everyone, here is chapter four and I decided from here on out to go with a different title for it. "Finding Chance" I just didn't think "Those Days" really fit the story. Well I hope you enjoy leave your comments email@example.com. Look for "Finding Chance" on Facebook.
He held the knife to my throat and his green eyes looked deep into my brown eyes. I could see all the rage that was built up inside of him. What did Mitch think about me kissing him? Did freak him out? Did I ruin our friendship?
"The only thing you can do Chance is follow your heart." She grabbed my hand and squeezed it. "Sometimes society is not going to be accepting of people like us that's what makes us even stronger and love even harder. Ginnifer's parents don't talk to her. She's twenty and they haven't spoke to her since she was seventeen. They threw her out." She looked at her watch. "I have to get back to work. Think about what I said and follow your heart."
"I love you Chance Stevens. I always have." I muttered aloud
"I love you too. I am just worried about what will happen if your mom finds out about us. She will surely through us both out and say she won't have any fags in her house. You heard how she bad mouths gay people. Did you hear her talking the other day about it saying how they didn't deserve equally right and deserved everything that they had coming to them in life and should probably all be sent to a little island to keep everyone else from being infected with their plague and well your sister isn't much better."
"We will deal with it when the time comes. We have less than a full year of school left and if we can just make it through it we will be fine. Don't worry your sexy little pants."
I let out a little chuckle from hearing him talk like that.
"As long as I have you then I know I will be fine. I love you so much Chance Matthew Stevens. This is the happiest day of my life."
I leaned over and kissed him on the lips.
"I love you too Mitchell Mark Mitchium." He replied through our kiss.
Chapter Four- The Outing
I woke up that morning at the exact same time as Chance, as soon as I felt him turn over and raise up in bed I woke up. He was looking right at me smiling.
"What are you doing in my bed?" I asked.
"You were having a nightmare." He replied. "I wanted to come comfort you. I just couldn't stand my baby having a nightmare.
I leaned over and kissed him. "I love you so much Chance. Promise me you will never leave me?"
He kissed me. "I promise. Yours forever and always."
"So what exactly are we? Are we boyfriends or friends with benefits?"
"Well-"He began. "You are a friend and it comes with benefits, but those benefits are way too great to be friend benefits and I don't wana share them."
"So what are you trying to say?" I asked him.
He raised up in bed a little. "Well on this Saturday October 16 at 11:15 AM I hereby declare us officially exclusive boyfriends." He let out a little chuckle then kissed me.
I lay there looking at him for a minute. I was just in awe that he was mine and mine alone. I had dreamed of this day for years. I knew at that moment that I loved him and never wanted to loose him.
"What do you want to do today?" He asked me. "How about our first official date?"
"Really?" My face gleamed all over when he said this.
"Really. Do you know what would be a great idea?" He looked at me.
"We should go out on a double date with Hannah and Nick and we could tell them about us being together."
"I'm dead serious. I love you Mitchell Mark Mitchium and I want the world to know all about us." He looked at me and grinned. "Well of course with the exception of my mom and sister."
I kissed him. "It's a date then."
Without warning, our bedroom door flung open, and in came Chance's friend Jason.
"Wake up you shit heads!" He shouted at the top of his lungs.
I personally couldn't stand him. He wanted to be the center of attention and thought that everything had to be his way. He also thought that he was God's gift to all women everywhere.
He was tall and very lanky. Probably around 6'2" or so and we disgustingly under weight at 135. He looked like he hadn't slept in several days because of the black circles that were always around his eyes. His brown hair had blond frosted tips that were always spiked.
He slammed the door shut behind him and looked at us.
"Yall look cozy all lying in bed together. What'd you do have hot steamy butt sex?" He walked over to Chance's bed and sat down.
A person can only be that hopeful. I thought to myself.
In the past few days when Chance and I had found out how much we love each other and wanted to be together we had made out any chance we were alone, sucked each other off and given each other hand jobs.
I think we were both nervous about having sex, seeing how we were both virgins. The idea sounded good though.
"What you want Jason?" Chance asked.
"What you say you get your ass up, get dressed and we go down to the batting cages. We can pick us up some hunnies and stick it in them."
"Not today." Chance told Jason. "Already have plans."
"I'll just tag along then."
"Uh- how about no me and Chance are going out with Hannah and Nick. Not any room for you buddy. Sorry."
"I have a car." Jason said desperately. "I'll follow and then you and me can go to the batting cages and pick us up some hunnies."
"No." Chance told him in an agitated tone.
Chance and Jason had been friends since elementary school and well they were like total opposites. Jason was rude and ill mannered, spoiled rotten and horny as hell and talked about sex all the time.
I honestly think that Chance could care less if they were friends. It was his mom that kept inviting Jason over all the time. She said it would be a good positive role model seeing how he had a dad and neither one of us did. She had even given him a key believe it or not.
I don't think his mom knew the truth about Jason's dad. He was an unemployed fat lazy drunk. He sat around all day drinking beers and watching ESPN while Jason's mom went out and worked her butt off.
Jason got off Chance's bed, walked over to the television and turned it on. And of course what channel does he choose? ESPN who would have guessed. He went and plopped back down in Chance's bed and made himself at home.
"I'll follow you and then we can go to the cages." Jason said as he looked over at Chance.
"Dude I said no. Ok." Chance said even more agitated than before.
"What's your deal? You not wana go pick up some pussy with me or are you getting some cock from good ole Mitchie?" He glared over at me. "What's up with you? You dump your girl with no reasoning. She says that you didn't wana stick it to her. Ole Mitchie poo doing something for you that she couldn't."
He glared at me again.
I was pissed. I was beyond pissed actually. I could feel my face turning bright getting hot and was probably turning five shades of red.
No one had made fun of me in years. My life was good and I wasn't gona let this asshole of all people walk all over me.
"What the fuck is your problem dude?" I yelled and I swore which I never do. "No one wants to go anywhere with you. You are an asshole. And I swear if you ever make fun of me I will kick your ass to next Sunday."
I glared right at him as I said it. He knew business. He was pissed now. His face was bright red.
"You're nothing but a moocher. Your mom and sister ran off and left you. You don't know who your dad is and you are just mooching off of Nancy and Chance."
I wanted to get out of bed right then and kick his ass, but I couldn't. Chance and I were both naked under the covers. This was the last person that needed to know that we were a couple. He would run right to Chance's mom just because he hated me so much.
"You take that back!" I shouted.
"Truth hurts!" Jason shouted back at me.
"Leave!" Mitch shouted. "Get out of my house and don't come back! I'm not going to let you talk to him like that. You have no idea what he has been through. You really are an ass."
Jason angrily got off the bed and ran over to the foot of my bed. He looked down at both of us.
"You deserve each other!"
He reached down and grabbed hold of the comforter that Chance and I were using to hide our naked bodies. Before I knew it he had yanked it off us and there we lay both naked as could be.
"I knew it!" He shouted.
He turned around, yanked open the door and ran out.
I jumped out of bed and raced after Jason. I knew I had to stop him. I couldn't let him talk to my boyfriend like that and I couldn't let him tell my mom.
It's a good thing that my mom was working that morning because she would have know about us for sure.
I grabbed him before he got to the end of the hallway. I slammed him against the wall so hard that I could see some of the pictures hanging on the wall in the hallway shake. I put my hand tightly around his neck making him gasp for every breath of air.
I looked him in the eyes giving him a cold death glare. "What in the hell was that all about?"
He tried to say something but couldn't because of my grasp on his throat. I loosened my grip a little.
"That little shit started it."
"Bull! I haven't wanted to be friends with you for a long time now. My mom is more of a friend than you she's the one that tells you that you are always welcome here. Guess what as of now you aren't. And yeah what you saw Mitch is my boyfriend now."
I balled up my fist and punched him in the stomach. He tried to double over from the pain but my grasp around his neck kept him tightly against the way. I punched him again.
"You tell my mom or anyone else there will be more where this came from." I punched him in the face this time. "Got me?"
He muttered something. I couldn't tell what it was and I really didn't care at that moment. I just wanted him the hell out of my house and didn't want to see his face again.
I let go of his throat and he fell to the floor. I put my bare foot on his chest and pressed down hard.
"Now get out or else I'll throw you out!"
Jason obediently got or well at least tried but couldn't so he crawled his way to the door and went out it.
I walked back down the hallway and climbed back into bed with Mitch.
I kissed him. "I don't think he'll be telling anyone anything about either one of us and I don't think we will be seeing him for awhile."
There we sat in the booth of Ventrasca's, which was a local chain of Italian restraunts. Mitch and I sat on one side of the table and Nick and Hannah sat on the other side.
We didn't eat at Ventrasca's very often because of the prices. A plate of spaghetti without any sides was 9.75 if that gives you a good idea of how much it costs. So this was a treat to us and a special day for Mitch and me seeing how it was our first official date.
Hannah looked up from the menu at me. "What happened at your hours this morning? I saw Jason crawling out of your house like a baby."
"Lets just say we got into this huge fight, I kicked his ass and don't want anything to do with him anymore."
"Good. I can't stand him." Hannah said. "He was blowing my phone off the hook all day. I don't even know how he got my number."
Just then the waiter came over to our table. "Hi, I'm David and I am going to be your waiter and your cashier when you are through. Are you guys ready to order?"
We all looked at each order and nodded our heads in unison.
He looked at Nick. "What will you be having tonight?"
"I'll have the chicken pasta with a side of mashed potatoes and garlic bread."
David wrote it down on his pad that he was caring. "And you miss?" He asked looking at Hannah.
"Fettuccini Alfredo and a garden salad please." Heather said as she looked up at the waiter.
"And you?" He asked me
"Grilled chicken tetrazzini with a garden salad."
"And you sir?" He asked looking at Mitch.
"Just give me spaghetti and garlic bread."
"I will go put in your order." He told us. "Are all these separate tickets?"
"Theirs is all together." I replied looking at Nick and Hannah. "And ours is together."
"Ok. I will go in and put in your order." He turned and walked towards the kitchen.
"Oh my gosh! Mitch, Chance is that you!" Someone exclaimed from across the room.
Both Mitch and myself turned to see who had said our names. We both were looking at a table that had two females sitting there looking at the menu.
One of them had shoulder length red hair and very fair skin. The other had short spiky brown hair and was a little darker than the other woman.
I saw the woman with the short hair say something to the other one and then they got up and started walking towards our table. I recognized the face of the one with the short brown hair, but just couldn't place where I had seen her from. That's when it hit me who she was.
It was Liz the nurse from the hospital four years earlier.
"How have you guys been?" She asked me.
"Great. Just great."
"Who's your friend?" I heard Nick whisper to Mitch who was sitting across the table from him.
"Liz this is Nick and Hannah." Mitch said as he looked at Liz. "They are friends of mine and Chance's.
"I was so worried about you. You left the hospital and I was so worried about you. Its so good to see you," she said to Mitch.
"Aren't you going to introduce me?" The woman said as she nudged Liz in the side.
"Everyone this is my girlfriend Ginnifer." Liz announced.
"Hi everyone." Ginnifer said.
"So you're a lesbian?" Nick asked bluntly.
"Yeah. Sorry sweetie. You're out of luck with me." She said as she smiled at Nick.
I could feel Hannah kick him under the table for his comment.
Liz glanced over at their table and saw David the waiter walking towards it. "Well we have to go order. Do you guys still have my number? You should give me a call and we can hang out."
"I don't I'm sorry." Mitch replied.
"Well here." She reached into her pocket and pulled out a pen. She picked a napkin up off the table and wrote on it. "There is my number call or text me sometime. Bye."
Liz and Ginnifer turned around and walked back to their table.
"Lesbians are cool!" Nick exclaimed.
"What do you think of gay guys?" I asked Nick curiously.
"I dunno. I don't know any."
"What if you did?"
"I dunno." Nick repeated.
"Well I think everyone should be free to love whomever they want." Hannah stated.
"I really don't think I would have a problem with it. I'm pro choice." Nick announced.
We all burst out laughing.
"Do you even know what that means?" Mitch asked.
"No. But it sounded good."
My face grew more serious. "I want to tell you something. Its really the reason Mitch and I wanted to hang out with yall tonight. We can trust you both. Right?"
"Yeah." Nick and Hannah both replied.
"Ok then. Well here goes. Mitch and I are boyfriends now and this is our first date. We just wanted to be the first to know," I said.
"Oh how sweet." Nick said in a little high pitched voice.
"You know this really doesn't surprise me," Hannah told us.
"Really?" Mitch asked.
"No. You two are together all the time. I mean for the past four years its been like you have been dating. You already act like an old married couple." Hannah laughed.
"So yall don't think no different of us?" Mitch asked
"No way dude." Nick said. "You're the same people you just took your friendship to a more intimate level."
"Like is said what took you so long to realize each other?" Hannah smiled.
I reached into my pocket and pulled out my vibrating cell phone. It said one new message. I flipped open my phone to see who it was from. One new message from Jason is what it said on the screen.
What can he want? I thought. I thought I got it off plain and clear that I didn't want to be friends with him.
I opened it up and my jaw dropped when I saw what it said.
"What is it?" Mitch asked with a worried look on his face.
"Why can't he just leave well enough alone!" I shouted.
"Chase, what's wrong?" Hannah asked.
I handed my phone to Mitch. His draw dropped in disbelief when he read it. He handed the phone around the table to Nick who looked at it.
"He can't be serious!" He exclaimed.
He handed it to Hannah who read the message. She looked at me then to Mitch.
"What are you going to do about it?" She asked.
