Kyle, Part 3


Disclaimer: This story is a continuation of the story of Kevin Foley, Rick Mashburn, and their "sons," Tim Murphy, Kyle Goodson, Justin Davis, and Brian Mathews that started in "Tim," continued in "Justin" and "Kyle," "Kyle, Part 2," and now continues in "Kyle, Part 3."  It is about gay men and gay boys living and loving together as a family, and it contains descriptions of sex.  The sex is never intergenerational, though.  If you are offended by descriptions of gay sex, or if the law in your area forbids you to read them, please exit the story.  Otherwise, I hope you enjoy it.  I appreciate feedback, and you can send it to me at

The story of Kevin Foley and Rick Mashburn, their families, their foster sons, and their friends has grown very long, and I think there will be a lot more to come.  I thought it might be helpful to readers to provide a table that sort of summarizes who the characters are and how they are related to one another.  Use this if you find it helpful; otherwise, ignore it.

I'm going to use the following symbols to clarify details about the characters.  I have not gone back and re-read the story from the beginning in order to create this table.  I'm doing it from memory, and I well might get a detail or two wrong.  If I do, I apologize in advance.

(#)    = character's age at the start of Kyle, Part 3

+      = two characters are a couple, in some kind of relationship with one another

(s)    = a character is straight, as far as is known; everyone else not so marked is gay
