Him Who Made The Seven Stars
"Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the
misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and
moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are
corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat
your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last
days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed
your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the
harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty." ~
No one would ever suspect a giant could move so fast. They're
usually thought of in terms of slow lumbering creatures. Billy Gog
Groats made a running leap from the third tear of the arena and
launched himself feet first over the edge like a genuine
super-hero. The brief moment he was airborne he looked like a
projectile from a great cannon. His speed, aim, and trajectory
were perfect. His big booted feet landed squarely in Crunch's
massive green chest and knocked him backward about fifteen feet
from impact, but it didn't loosen his death grip on the sword. Gog
covered Joe's body with his own to protect him and morphed into a
huge exoskeletal critter called an Ictothyloathian which looked
like a large geodesic dome. It was hollow underneath to protect
the young of their species from predators. After their eggs
hatched, the young didn't develop an exoskeleton protective
covering for several years.
"Do not move, Brother!" Gog warned Joe.
Joe didn't know what the fuck was going on, but he recognized
Gog's voice and heeded his command. Crunch quickly recovered and
brought the blade down on the solid bone covering. It made a loud
'clank' sound but it did no harm to the surface. He raised it
again to bring it down harder when about twenty feet away Archie
and Edith flew into the arena, pointed their small hands at him,
and zapped the giant Ork in a crossfire. Crunch screamed in anger,
rage, and pain. As he fell over backward from the massive jolt of
bio-electrical energy, he let loose of the great sword, and it
went flying high into the air slowly twirling like a drum-major's
Like a precision act out of Cirque du Soleil, Archie flew up and
caught the sword by the handle in mid-air and flew it back to the
dwarf vendor to whom it belonged. In the meantime, Edith shot a
length of Psyche manufactured bio-roping from her small body which
instantly stuck to Crunch's back. She quickly started circling
him, binding his arms to his waist. She kept circling him like she
did Orville producing more of her incredibly strong webbing-fiber
to secure Crunch and render him harmless. Archie flew to her aid
and did the same around Crunch's legs until the giant green Ork
could not move either of his appendages. He was completely
immobilized and fell over in a seething rage.
Even as he lay helpless on the ground, he struggled, screamed in
anger and frustration, shouting all manner of vile, filthy things,
and accusing everyone of being prejudice; the judges were against
him from the start and carefully planned for his defeat. He called
them Orkian racists and conspirators. When he began to foam at the
mouth, Billy figured he'd had about enough of Crunch for one
weekend. He walked over, placed his hand on Crunch's struggling
head and put him into a deep sleep. It was like turning off Flush
Rimjob at the height of one of his most disgusting tirades. The
silence was far more rewarding and soul sustaining than listening
to hate-filled egocentric lies and garbage.
Billy walked over and rapped his knuckles on the bone-igloo
carapace covering Joe. "Crunch is secure, Gog. You can let Joe
come out now," Billy said.
"Aww, do I have to?" Gog replied like a little kid, and Billy
"Yes, I need to see to his ear before it falls off, and we need to
get him cleaned up. You were wonderful, Gog. You saved your
brother's life, and you have found favor in your master's eyes,"
Billy said sincerely.
"Do I get a hug?" Gog asked teasing Billy.
"That and much more. How's about a big wet sloppy buckaroo kiss
from your grateful master, and each one of his junior buckaroos,"
"Now you're talk'n!" Gog said, morphed back into himself, and
gently helped his brother unfold from his close protection. The
audience in the stands went nuts applauding and cheering for Gog,
Joe, Billy, Archie, and Edith. It was an exciting ending to the
'close-skillet' smack-down wars which would be talked about and
the videos watched in detail by historians and trivia-geeks for
centuries. Billy's family were in awe. They knew there would be
interesting things happen when they joined the Daniels' greater
family alliance, but they never imagined just how spectacular and
exciting a ride it might be.
Pete Breedlove was in tears from the highly emotional outcome of
the smack-down and had to be comforted by his old man. Bulls are
good about that sort of thing. They just seem to have a second
sense when one of their herd needs a little unconditional love. In
one weekend, Pete experienced the most amazing and wonderful
things he could ever imagine. He wondered how he would be able to
go back to his quotidian eight to five workday life at the feedlot
and stockyard. Somehow, he knew he was shown all this and given a
second chance by his family for a reason. He rededicated himself
to rise above what he was and become something greater than he
ever imagined himself capable. He began to look on the weekend as
a road-map for his future.
Judge LaFleur and his son drove home after spending another hour
or so watching Master Billy repair the huge blue giant and Joe
being bathed and pampered by both groom teams. They paid their
respects to everyone but saved their most lavish thanks and praise
for Joe, Gog, and Master Billy. They couldn't express how grateful
they were for being included for the weekend. It was an experience
they would remember for many years.
The village folks approached Joe like he was their personal saint.
He was one of them. They couldn't do enough for him and touched
him with reverence and feelings of great affection for their big
hero. They were also very much taken with Joe's savior, Billy Gog.
Thor and Zeus were equally taken with everything they observed and
were more proud than ever of their close friendship with Billy
Gog. Not only were they proud to be a part of Master Billy's
family, but they were also bursting with pride for their intimate
family member and couldn't love him more. They told Gog later,
they always knew he would one day aspire to greatness, and now,
they were more sure than ever. The village folks brought the two
giants and Master Billy's family food and drink. They were in awe
of everything they saw that day and would pass the legend down to
While they were still in the arena, a great flash of light
occurred in the center and a large blue watery-looking door sprang
up. Through it walked two handsome angels. They were completely
naked except for a fine looking pair of buckaroo boots and a
massive harness for their upper bodies. The village folks were
stunned and fell to their knees in awe. The angels smiled and made
motions with their hands for them to stand. They recognized Billy
taking care of Joe, approached him and his family, and bowed
deeply. "Hosanna, Master Billy," the larger of the two said.
"Hosanna, in the highest," Billy returned their greeting, and
returned their bow.
"I am Garth-el, and this is my ambassadorial equal Macker-el. Just
call us Garth and Mack -- it will be fine with us. We're here on a joint mission.
I represent the Grigori and my partner
represents the Irin. We've come to relieve you of your problem, or
burden if you will, of the Ork hybrid you
call Crunch. You asked for a universal consensus regarding how
most think you should handle the situation. While I can see it's
probably a moot question for the moment, I'll ask anyway. Have you
had time to ask your staff for the latest universal polls?" he
"Naw, sir, we been busy. I don't think my staff has had time to
check. For lack of a better term, we just been wing'n it," Billy
said and a handful of his posse laughed at Billy's pun. The bigger
angel, Mack, laughed.
"Hesh up, Mack," Garth reprimanded the larger angel, "We're here
on official business," he admonished his partner.
"Sorry, Garth," the big one replied and made an attempt to sober
"You come to the wrong place, Ambassador-Angel Garth, if you got
some'um against laughter," Master Bull leveled his aim and fired.
Every cowboy including Billy and Garth's fellow angel, Mack, broke
"Mack! Please," Garth said to his partner like he was trying
desperately to be serious and maintain some semblance of decorum.
It was too late. Poor Mack was already mounted-up and riding with
the cowboys laughing his fine looking ass off.
"Ah, c'moan Garth. Lighten up, Brother. These men just been
through a terrible traumatic episode in their lives. Granted it
worked out for the best, but the way they keep from letting it get
the better of them is to maintain a sense of humor in the face of
a near disaster. Fortunately, these men know how to enjoy life and
have a little fun while doing it. We could learn a lot from them,"
"Spoken like a true cowboy, sir," Elmer said and patted Mack on
"Thank you, Master Bull. I'll take that as a compliment. Coming
from you, I consider it an honor, sir," Mack said. It was obvious
the big men bonded in their brief exchange.
"I got me a feeling you's gonna' tell me what them polls say,"
Billy said to Garth.
"Well – yes, sir, if you like," Garth replied.
"No! Don't tell me! I don't wanna' know right now. I don't want
them polls interrupting my train of thought nor any of my family's
thoughts before I get a chance to sit in heap-big pow-wow wiff' my
chiefs. We hold sacred sweat-bath with magic herbs to reveal the
wisdom of the universe to us. It will tell us what to do," Billy
said in broken pidgin English trying to sound like an Indian. "My
main scout, Tonto -- which means big-dicked-dude-with-many-rings
-- him got big sweat-lodge," he added and grinned at Nick. Billy's
cowboys were trying their best not to laugh.
"But – several of the men have the same rings. Which one is
Tonto?" Garth asked and waded into deeper water.
"That's right. They's all got rings. They's all Tontos," Billy
said, "Tonto one, Tonto two, Black Tonto, and the big one we just
call Tonto Bull for obvious reasons," Billy said.
"They each have exceptionally large penises. Does 'Tonto' mean
big-penis?" Garth asked naively.
"Exactly, Kemosabe," Billy replied
"And what does Kemosabe mean?" he asked.
"Much smaller penis with no pretty ring," Billy said. That did it.
Billy's family couldn't hold it any longer, and they fell together
laughing at Billy's nonsense. Tron and Nathan laughed the hardest.
"Garth have you ever heard the term 'pulling-your-leg'?" Mack
"No, is it a colloquialism?" Garth asked.
"Have you ever been around cowboys before?" Mack asked and
"No. I never heard the word 'cowboy' before this assignment,"
"You poor angel. In the name of some unknown god, I pity you, my
Brother. These men will eat you alive and pick their teeth with
your bones!" Mack declared.
"Naw, won't happen, Mack!" Billy exclaimed, "Kemosabes ain't got
big enough bones. A cowboy's gotta' be careful when they eat one.
Them tiny bones will stick in your throat," Billy said and
Everyone was laughing at the naive winged-tenderfoot. Mack turned
his head from his partner and tried to stifle a laugh by
pretending to cough into his fist.
"You have our deepest apologies, A-two Garth, but your partner is
right. We been pulling-your-leg and having a little fun at your
expense, but our bullshit stops now. A-two Mack is also right
about us trying to unravel a bad situation with a little humor.
Perhaps, the timing of your arrival is a bit off, certainly
unexpected for the moment, and you caught us totally off-guard. We
weren't prepared for your sudden appearance, and we're still in a
hyper-attenuated state of trying desperately to reduce the amount
of excess adrenaline which was automatically dumped into our
bodies within the last few minutes by our glandular
fight-or-flight systems. While my family responded in nothing less
than a super-heroic manner and saved the day, we're still
recovering from the shock of the insanely violent actions of our
Ork slave. Humor in the face of horror is one of the many ways us
humans are able to balance our fears and calm our shattered ego
systems which tells us we live on the edge, within a breath of
facing our own mortality in an instant by the uncalculated act of
a madman; in our case a mad-Ork. Our seeming lack of hospitality
is only a shield against further intrusion to our already
overloaded information systems with which we're not yet ready to
deal. We hope you can find it in your generous heart to forgive
us. I promise we will make it up to you and your mate, and show
you the hospitality and respect your positions as
ambassador-angels for our two supporting races deserve," Billy
"I understand, Master Billy. Of course I forgive you. Your
explanation was more than adequate to give me a picture of your
current mental state after such a shocking afternoon. I was told,
and I thought, you would welcome our offer to remove the Ork for
you," Garth said somewhat contritely.
"And what would happen to Crunch should I allow you to take him?"
"Why, he would be terminated immediately. Such a violent act would
demand the ultimate price," Garth replied.
"I can't and won't allow that to happen. It ain't that
cut-and-dried, A-two Garth. It just ain't that easy, sir. It's
complicated. Come, you and A-two Mack stay with us for a while
until we gather ourselves and can more graciously accommodate you.
Our nerves are in such disarray, we ain't trustworthy at this
moment to make any decision or respond to any questions about
polls or the wishes of the Grigori or the
Irin. Furthermore, you need to know the extenuating circumstances
which created an internal conundrum within our Ork, Crunch, but
right now, I neither have the time nor the emotional energy to
present you with the facts or go over them with you. I'm
physically and emotionally drained, and I know my family is as
well. Like a dipstick in a crankcase, I can judge their tolerance
level by their nervous laughter. Crunch ain't going no-wheres for the time being. He's our problem,
and we will resolve it," Billy tried to assure the fine looking
angel, "In the meantime, join us. We plan
to have supper, relax, perhaps enjoy a bit of music, then the men
of my immediately family will meet and discuss the situation. At
that time, we'll be happy to hear any thoughts and input about
polls and suggestions from our dedicated sponsors on Retikki Prime
and Fort Adam Lear," Billy added.
Garth and Mack stood together out of the way and watched Billy
work with his family and the grooms of the smack-down to repair
and restore Joe. Billy was very thorough and gentle with Joe. The
angels were impressed by Billy's kindness and loving compassion
toward his blue giant slave. They were deeply moved.
"What's he mean by 'A-two Garth'?" Garth asked his partner.
"Ambassador-Angel," Mack replied.
"Of course, it makes sense. Are cowboys always so lazy with their
speech patterns?" Garth whispered.
"Yes, but once you get used to the lilt of the lingo, you'll find
yourself talking like them even after we return to our worlds.
It's like you become infected with Texas or cowboy speak, it wraps
itself around your heart, and it becomes a part of you," Mack
"I doubt that," Garth said firmly.
"We'll see," Mack responded and grinned.
* * * * * *
"It's over, Joe, and we couldn't be more proud of you," Billy
tried to calm the big blue giant. "I don't want you to be alone
for a while. I want you to spend your evening with Billy Gog
Groats, my guard bulls, and their groom friends, Mace, and Picard.
I want you to report to me in the morning so I can keep tabs on
your progress. I want to make sure you're around gentle people you
know and love and who love you. I think I'll put you on Manager
Jethro's staff for a while to keep you busy and your mind active
so's you won't dwell on this weekend," Billy said gently trying to
calm and soothe Joe.
"I'd very much like to work for Manager Jethro, sir, but what
about Crunch and my little brother, Master Billy?" Joe asked.
"Trust me to do the right thing by you and your brothers. I sent
Clyde and Balthazar for an anti-gravity gurney. We'll move Crunch
to one of the largest cells in the castle dungeon and release him
from his bonds. The cell has it's own patio where he can walk
around, get some light, and see people around him at all times.
Crunch needs a time-out to think about what he did and calm down.
I ain't gonna' make no snap decision about him until I got all the
necessary input from my family to make a sane and reasonable
assessment of the situation. Right now, tempers are high, and we
need a little time to let them abate somewhat," Billy said.
"You already proved your love for me and my little brother, Master
Billy. You trusted us, and I will trust you. I know you have our
best interest at heart," Joe said.
"Thanks, Joe, I promise, I won't let you down," Billy said.

Retikki Prime ~
You're losing our bet, Sweet-nums," the Lord High Chancellor
Gregor said to his mate, Albrecht. "I told you our nephew wouldn't
go for such a direct intrusion, and if you recall, it was you who
granted him a non-interference status for his operation. So far,
you were absolutely right to do so. He's passed every task we set
before him brilliantly. He's bringing the Irin
herd on board his operation faster than we projected he might.
He's gaining wisdom by the day and he's learning to delegate power
by asking little more than love and
familial bonding from his extended family. What Billy and his
family accomplished with the 'close-skillet' contest was
mind-boggling. It was simple, elegant, and stunningly
accomplished. Do you realize how many credits have been allotted to his account since the smack-down
was broadcast? It's staggering. If he keeps going at the amazing
pace he's shown so far, he will become the most wealthy man on
Earth. There has never been a king on Earth, including Midas or
the Popes, who has amassed such wealth in such a short period of
time, and he's done it with little more than love and compassion
for his fellow man," Gregor said.
"Our bet ain't over, Dear-heart," Albrecht said using the language
of their beloved nephew, "He still might realize what a boon it
might be to rid himself of his Ork problem," he added.
"Would you care to double our wager, my pet?" Gregor asked, "How
many times have we watched him pull a rabbit out of a hat when you
were sure he might fall apart? He always comes up with something
more efficient and elegant than we ever imagined. Mark my word, he
will this time, too," Gregor said firmly.
"My reason tells me not to, but my sporting nature says go-for-it.
I'll accept your challenge, Husband, and for all the truth within
me, I pray to some unknown god I lose," Albrecht replied and the
enormous giant watchers laughed together.
"Why does that young human cause my loins to stir so mightily, my
worthy mate?" Gregor asked.
"You've asked me that before, and I've given it considerable
thought. I think you identify with him on a paternal level. The
thought or wish he might have sprung from your loins is an
overwhelming sexual fantasy for you. Since he's come into our
lives and is conjoined with our family through our nephew, you
have become reborn. We haven't created so many stars together in
centuries as we have since Billy Daniels became a member of our
family. I'm surprised you haven't ask to impregnate me," Albrecht
"After all these yarrens? For all my fantasies -- and I agree with
your assessment of Billy Daniels -- with all the responsibilities
of our duties, we wouldn't have time to raise a bairn and do it
properly," Gregor said, "Look what we did to our nephew. We sent
him off to Earth to grow up in the wilderness with a group of
watchers who were little more than hunter-gatherers," Gregor
"It's just a thought, my love. Until then, shall we create some
more stars? I think they could use several more in the Milky-way,"
Albrecht said, "It's been a while since we rang our poor lonely
little bell beside our bed," he added.
"Since we been watching the Daniels' Show, we've been more regular
in our star-making duties, but a few more stars to light up their
night sky couldn't hurt none," Gregor said using cowboy-lingo and
The next morning on Earth the news was atwitter interviewing
astronomers who were witnessing three massive new stars being born
in our galaxy. Billy smiled to himself. He saw the new stellar
babies as good omens. He knew his in-laws approved his actions.
* * * * * * *
Billy and his posse bid farewell to the village people and
transported back to the old barn. It was getting late in the
afternoon and time for Orville to report back to his keepers. He
spent all day with his young master and got to eat some exotic
foods the village folks provided for the smack-down. The men
materialize in the old barn and clothed themselves. Billy asked
Clyde to outfit their angel guests for the evening, and fully
clothed, they made handsome cowboys. Buck, Hank, and the ladies
prepared a good meal for the men and the visiting angels seemed to
enjoy themselves. After the meal was done and the area cleaned up,
there was a number of folks who took their leave to return to
their homes. Tom, Abigale, and the boys said their goodbyes and
left. The boys wanted to stay, but they had to be in school the
next day. The Rutherfords took off next,
but Randy wanted to stay. Ruth put her foot down and told him
since he and Rand were in charge of the hands, he had a job to do,
and no cowboy worth the name would shirk his responsibilities.
Billy smiled, winked at Ruth, and nodded his approval. She was
right. As young as he was, Randy wasn't too young to begin
Billy decided against music for the evening. He was still coming
down from the weekend and was finding it more relaxing just being
with his immediate family. The sheriff and his crew paid their
respects and left as did Perry Reed and Mick Flynn. Billy asked
Elmer, Vox, Oatie, and Jethro to stay for a while longer. They
almost didn't get Jethro away from the village folks. He attended
the smack-down in his demon persona, and they sat as close to him
as they could without intruding on his and Oatie's space. For some
reason, Billy's humorous idea of a sweat lodge became more of a
reoccurring vision in his mind. He saw Nick look at him and smile.
Billy knew he was listening in.
<< We have a sweat-bath area on the ship, Kemosabe, >>
<< Where, Tonto? >> Billy asked.
<< In the dungeon area of the castle. Shall I signal the
grooms on our ship to stand ready for us?" >> he asked.
<< Please do. I think it's something we must do, >>
"Hank, Buck, I want you men with us this evening. Buck are you
going to have any problems being naked with the rest of the men?"
"Naw, sir, Master Billy. They's family. They know you changed me
last week. Maybe sometime you can teach me to change on my own,"
"I promise, Brother," Billy replied and smiled at Buck, "Cass! You
and Poly plan on joining us, too. Boomer, you're with me, Captain
Nick, Clyde, and Balthazar this evening. Jack you must stay over
another night because we won't be able to teach you to de-wing
until tomorrow. Bubba, you and Brute are welcome to join us. Uncle
Nathan, Mr. Garrett, Enoch, and Moss, I need you to join us, if
you will. I know tomorrow is a work day for Oatie, Jethro, and
Pete, but it's still early evening. We can break up our gathering
early enough so you men can get some rest. I may need you men as
well as Master Bull and Vox, and of course our guests of honor,
Ambassadors Garth and Mack will be joining us. We will enjoy a
community sweat-bath and some herbal tea. I need everyone of you
men to help me decided what to do with our Ork," Billy said.
Elmer and Oatie asked Pete if he wanted them to transport him back
to their ranch where he could take his truck and go home if he
needed; or, he was welcome to join them, and they would leave
"Would you like me to stay?" he asked.
Elmer, Oatie, Vox, and Jethro assured Pete they would like for him
to stay if he wanted.
"I probably should get home, but my curiosity's got the better of
me," Pete allowed.
"Tell you what, if we see we're going to run later than we
thought, Jethro and I can still transport you and get you home
quicker," Oatie said.
"Then, I'd love to stay," Pete said.
* * * * * * *
The men thanked the ladies for a wonderful supper and transported
to Captain Nick's ship. They shed their wings, urged the
ambassador-angels to do the same, and they complied. The grooms,
Mack and Picard were waiting for them and were preparing some of
Buck and Hank's special tea for the men. They helped the men
undress and had a towel for each. They already had a big fire
going in the sweat lodge, and there was a large round pool of hot
water for them sit and lounge in. There were underwater
seats they could sit on and the water would come up to their chest
depending on their size. Some seats were lower than others for the
bigger species. Garth and Mack saw the men
naked earlier in the afternoon when they first arrived, but Hank
and Buck weren't there. They left immediately after Joe won the
smack-down to return to the ranch house to begin the barbecue. Vox
was naked, but they didn't think anything of it. He was just one
of Billy's family. When they got a good look at Buck and his
perfect little cunt, they were surprised, impressed, and curious.
"Is that the change you were talking about earlier?" Mack asked.
"It is, Master Mack. Master Billy asked for a volunteer to
exchange his cock and balls for a cunt. Since I been with my
partner damn near forty years, I wanted to try it for him, so I
volunteered with the provision Master Billy would change me back
the next morning. He promised he would, but me and Hank talked
about it, and decided we should road test it a few more times. I got used to it
this past week, and it feels so good when my husband sleeps inside
me, I think I might like to keep it for a
while," Buck explained. Hank pulled him close and stole a kiss
from his partner. Pete thought Vox and Rox were amazing but to see
a very masculine older cowboy with a fine looking hairless little
cunt made his cock fill with blood. Since the visiting angels
sported erections, he didn't feel exceptional.
"That's amazing. I've never seen anything like it," said Garth,
"How did you learn to do that, Master Billy?" he asked.
Vox spoke up, "He learned it from me and my sister's DNA. Watch
closely," Vox told them and morphed into Roxanne.
The angels gasped. "And you can change back and forth? That's what
you promised Buck you would do for him, Master Billy?" Mack asked.
Billy explained he would only need to teach Buck to swap-out his
genitals, but Vox and Roxanne were brother and sister in the same
body. Rox was trapped for years inside Vox before Billy taught
them how to morph and switch roles for a while. The angels were
stunned but greatly impressed.
"Does any of your other family morph into different sexes?" Garth
"Not so much different sexes, but they're capable once I teach
them how. I think you already saw Master Oatie's husband Jethro
morph into his demon-dad form this afternoon. My surrogate pa
taught him how. There's a bit more to the story, but the basics
are the same. My halfling twins over there between our watchers
Boomer and Brute, can morph into copies of them two big cowboys
sit'n next to them. They quite often bring a bit of comfort to my
large husband, Boomer. It's a win-win situation for our family to
help each other when they need us," Billy said and took another
sip of his herbal tea.
He couldn't remember when he and Nick last enjoyed a cup of herb
tea, but he was pretty sure it was when Jethro was in transition
to his Kagoli demon form. It was relaxing and everyone was getting
closer. The ambassador-angels said they never drank herbal tea
before and weren't prepared for the effects. They found themselves
easily melding into the camaraderie of Billy's immediate family.
They became comfortable, more open, and chatted with the men with
ease. Pete Breedlove was warned about the tea, but he decided to
try it on his dad's recommendation. Pete found it wonderful and
any lingering feelings haunting him about a bunch of naked cowboys enjoying a hot soak together vanished.
He felt included like one of the family.
"I think we're more relaxed now, Master Garth, if you and Master
Mack would like to share with us the results of the universal
polls and what requests our favorite Ramrod and our two
uncle-in-law's might have for us," Billy said prompting a response
from the angels.
"Wait a minute. My mind is a bit unsettled from the herbs. Did you
say uncle-in-laws?" Garth asked.
"Yes, sir, I'm related to the Lord High Chancellors, Gregor and
Albrecht, by marriage. My big watcher slave over there, Boomer, is
their nephew and my husband. Boomer is the father of our young
human bairn who is being carried by the lovely and gifted lady
Irin slave, Roz, whom you met at supper this evening. Me and many
of my family were enhanced by the Grigori
on Retikki Prime and further enhanced by Ramrod Quigley on one of
our visits to Fort Adam Lear," Billy explained.
"Hosanna, in the highest! That means your slave will one day
become supreme ruler of the Retikki Prime empire, and you will be
his consort. Forgive us, Master Billy, we knew nothing of this, I
swear to you," Garth said and Mack agreed.
"Typical Grigori," sighed Nick, "They'll
tell you your mission, but they won't give you a lot to go on to
accomplish the job. They leave it up to you. That's what landed me
here on Earth. Ain't complain'n none. It was the best damn
prearranged accident what ever happened to me. I got me a feel'n
you men don't know all the facts about what or why you were sent
here," Nick said.
"I think we're beginning to feel that way, Captain," Mack spoke
up, "Before we tell you anything about why we're here, perhaps you
will share with us the unusual circumstances you mentioned
earlier, Master Billy," Mack added.
Billy told the angels and his men the story behind Joe, Crunch,
and Crunch's chimera, Willie.
"You mean like Vox and Roxanne are two separate entities in one
body, your Ork shares his with another blue giant who is Joe's
younger brother?" Garth asked incredulously.
"Exactly, Master Garth, that's what we're telling you; plus, don't
forget, Crunch is Joe's half-brother. Not exactly Cain and Able,
but you gentlemen are wise enough to appreciate a convoluted
metaphor," Billy replied.
"Indeed. So if we were to terminate Crunch, we not only would be
executing his half-brother, but in essence, we would also be
murdering Joe's baby brother," Mack said like an epiphany. He
looked at Garth, and they exchanged a look of stunned awareness
bordering on horror.
"Can you appreciate the conundrum it presents?" Billy asked
"Yes, and no. While we can appreciate the dilemma of your
conundrum, we can't fathom the idea of killing an innocent. That
would be wrong on several levels," Garth replied like he was
devastated emotionally, "We knew nothing of this, either," he
"I'm curious about the polls, Gentlemen. What did they say?" Billy
"First of all, the leaders of both worlds were overwhelmed by the
sheer volume of responses. To quote actual numbers would be
meaningless, but trust us when we tell you they were massive. We
brought only percentages. The largest percentage of votes was
enormous for the leaders of both worlds to leave you and your
family well enough alone, Master Billy. The second was to offer
assistance but not insist you accept it. I suppose, unless you
were closely watching the complicated story of your journey to
this 'close-skillet' smack-down, not everyone knows of the
intricate details and extenuating circumstances you shared with
us. The largest percentage voted to terminate Crunch. Mack and I
discussed it and decided there might be more to the story, but we
didn't have details," Garth explained.
"The main reason we were sent was to offer you an option to spare
you the emotional burden of having to terminate one of your
slaves," Mack further explained.
"I'm glad you came. Your prompt arrival tells me our families on
Retikki Prime and Fort Adam Lear are concerned for us. I extend my
invitation to you to stay with us for a while. I'm well aware of
the time differentiation. You can remain with us for six months
and only a couple of hours will pass on
your worlds. I urge you to take advantage of your positions and
enjoy our company. Who knows, Master Garth, we might even make a
cowboy out of you," Billy said and laughed.
"I consider that a compliment, Master Billy. Mack and I have
discussed it, and we would like to stay for a while. We want to
observe you and your family in action on a daily basis. Do you
have any ideas about how you plan to handle the situation?" Garth
"At the moment, I ain't got me no clue, Master Garth, but I ain't
worried about it. Sometimes things come to me, but sometimes they
don't. The times they don't is usually 'cause I's too emotionally
involved to reason and think rationally. Unfortunately, you caught
me at my worst this afternoon. Other times, one of my beloved
family will say the right combination of words and a magic duck
will drop down from the sky and shit on me head for not thinking
of it myself. I come to depend on them and so far, they ain't
never let me down. That's why we's sit'n here enjoying the hot
water, some herb tea, and each other's company," Billy said and
sighed deeply as he lay his head on Nick's broad shoulder.
"I know what I'd do with him if'n he was my slave," bellowed the
"Hit me with it, Brother! Testify!" Billy said, and everyone
"I'd cut his damn balls off!" Elmer exclaimed, "It would calm him
down right-smart real quick-like," he added.
"To be honest, Master Bull, that option's been lingering in the
back of my mind like Cabo San Lucas -- a last resort. Plan 'X' as
apposed to A through Z, but I was hoping for something a bit more
creative. Somebody here's got the answer, I know it. Don't be
afraid to speak up," Billy encouraged his family.
"I think Master Bull has a good idea, and you should consider it,
Son," Tron spoke up, "We castrate young calves so they won't grow
into bulls for a couple of reasons. One, their meat won't be tough
when they mature, and if we didn't neuter them we'd be up to our
ears in horny, mean, unruly bulls fighting each other and us.
Sometime the only way to tame a mean-spirited crazy-horse is to
clip him. Within weeks there's a noticeable change in their
attitudes," Mr. Garrett explained.
Everyone was quiet. Vox was sitting next to Billy in the huge tub.
"Billy doesn't have to totally castrate the Ork," he said quietly.
All eyes were on Vox.
"I'm listening, Brother," Billy urged Vox and put his arm around
"When you worked on me and Roxanne, and gave me information I
needed to morph into her form, it was a one-way street at first –
remember?" Vox asked.
"I remember, but you insisted we do it enough times Roxanne could
help, and in an emergency, she could make the change herself.
There was some concern you might want to be more possessive of
your male half and deny Rox quality time, but I don't think it's
ever crossed either of your minds. You're talented, educated,
reasonable, well-adjusted adults, and agreed to share. Besides,
you're united in love for your husband whom you wish to provide
with your love and comfort. Sharing a bed with the bull of the
hill country is a daunting task to undertake by anyone's
standards. I ain't never heard no rumors Master Bull has any
problem keep'n his herd happy and satisfied," Billy said and they
shared a laugh.
"Hypothetically though, if you only taught one of us – me – to
morph, could I actually deny my sister access to our body except
when I was in a generous mood to share?" Vox asked. He sort of
took Billy by surprise until it came to Billy, Vox was building up
"Yes, I could have done it that way, but if I recall correctly, it
t'weren't my idea. It was your humanity, your wish to share with
you sister, which prompted your request. Wait a minute! I think I
see where you're going with this, but go on, tell me what you got
in mind, Brother," Billy said.
"Is there enough of Willie's genetic information in Crunch's body
you could morph him into a blue giant?" Vox asked.
"Certainly, it can be done. Go on, Vox, you ain't done yet," Billy
encouraged Vox and winked at Elmer.
"You said the chimera, Willie, has a set of testicles – am I
right?" Vox asked.
"Small and underdeveloped, but I could easily enhance them and
make them as strong as Crunch's," Billy replied.
"Then I was correct. You wouldn't have to neuter Crunch
completely. Remove one of his testicles, replace it with a
prosthesis or not; he would still be able to produce enough
testosterone to maintain his masculinity but not enough to become
combative or mean-spirited. After a while, if he don't settle down
and accept his new situation, shrink his remaining testicle in
size until it barely functions," Vox explained.
"You mean like turning down the heat on a furnace?" Billy asked
"The analogy works for me, Son," Vox replied and smiled.
There was a stunned silence around the pool. Nathan started
clapping and Tron joined him immediately. The rest of Billy's
family joined in the applause including Pete and the visiting
angels. The men stood in the tub to give Vox's idea their complete
and unqualified approval. Old Elmer was beaming at his mate. Billy
offered his hand to Vox. He stood with the men, and Billy gently
pulled him into his arms. "I knew the answer was here. I should
have asked you from the beginning. Thank you, Vox," Billy said and
the men applauded again.
"To be honest, Billy, it didn't come to me until you were
explaining me and my sister to our guests. It just come to me like
a fly ball into left field and resolved it within my own soul like
a strong picardy third," Vox said.
"It's precisely what I'll do. It's simple, elegant, and a
reasonable resolution to our Ork problem. You and your sister are
frick'n geniuses, Vox!" Billy exclaimed. "I can teach Willie to
morph and forbid him to share the information with Crunch. Willie
can keep him from bullying or forcing him to change back into an
Ork. I'll instruct Willie he's not to morph back into Crunch until
we can be sure he's trustworthy, and then only with my permission
for short supervised periods of time. I will reverse their roles,
and Willie will become Crunch's jailer and keeper. It will be a
better solution than terminating both, and it will curtail
Crunch's delusions of grandeur and consummate greed," Billy said
and his family agreed.
"When do you plan to do it, Kemosabe?" Nick asked.
"As soon as possible – like, right now. I put Crunch into a deep
sleep, and he won't wake-up until late morning. He's here in the
dungeon with us. We have our family to help, and a clean work
area. Clyde will you and Balthazar get him, load him on the
gurney, and bring him to one of the tables in the work area? Poly,
you and Cass go with them and take Mace and Picard. Clean Crunch
after they release him from his bonds. I remember he was pretty
dirty after the smack-down, but with four of you men to work on
him, it shouldn't take long," Billy said.
"Yes, sir, Master Billy. We'll fetch him right away, sir,"
Balthazar said and the six men left the pool area.
"Are you worried about the herbs interfering with your skills,
Kemosabe?" Nick asked.
"No, not in the least. If anything they will heighten and sharpen
my skills. If nothing else, they will make it more pleasant
knowing I'm doing something to correct Crunch what ain't terminal,
and I'll be giving Joe the younger brother he's loved all these
years," Billy replied.
After Crunch was brought into the dungeon, laid out on a padded
leather table, and thoroughly cleaned, Billy instructed his family
to wing-up and asked Garth and Mack to join them. Poly, Cass,
Clyde, and Balthazar became Billy's technicians and clean-up men
as he operated on his slave. What the men of Billy's family
witnessed was nothing short of miraculous. Pete was impressed
beyond words, and Jack began to appreciate his change more than
ever. The last step of Billy's operation was to morph Crunch into
Willie for the first time. It went quicker than he imagined it
might, but it was because of the extra gathered energy available
to him from many more wings. The men marveled at the fine handsome
body of Willie being born for the first time on the table. There
were more than a few tears shed at the wonder of bringing Joe's
little brother into the world. It gave the term 're-born' new
dimensions, only this one was real and tangible.
The men watched as Billy carefully and expertly morphed the large
Ork into a blue giant who began to look very much like his
brother, Joe. It was obvious Willie wouldn't be quite as large as
Joe, but he would have a full head of pure white hair. Billy liked
Joe's bald head and almost gave into the temptation to delete
Willie's hair, but decided to leave it up to Joe and his little
brother. Once Willie's body was complete, Billy enhanced his
genitals until they were a bit smaller than Joe's, but he had a
well-packed, heavy-hanging, full set of testicles to produce male
hormones for him. Under Billy's guidance, while Willie began to
show a family resemblance to his big brother, he turned out more
handsome than Joe. Once again, Billy's family was impressed with
his powers and skills.
"This has to be the cherry on top of the sundae, Dad," Pete
whispered to Elmer.
"Glad you decided to stay, Son?" Elmer asked.
"More than you can imagine, Dad. I have a new vision of what our
world could be, and I can't thank you enough for the opportunity,"
"You're older and wiser, Pete. Don't let your vision slip away; build on it, Son," Elmer said.
"I won't make you no promises, Dad. Promises are empty. I will
show you, day by day," Pete said. Elmer put his huge arm around
Pete and pulled him closer.

"Wake up, Willie!" Billy commanded, "Awake, awake to life an love,
the lark is in the sky," Billy called to the sleeping body, and
Willie's eyes opened for the first time. He saw Master Billy
surrounded by an host of angels, and a tear formed and ran down
the side of his cheek. Cass handed Billy a cloth, and he gently
dabbed it away for him.
"What's happening, sir?" Willie asked, "I don't remember anything
after you put us to sleep," he added.
"We done a small procedure and decided you should be in control of
your and Crunch's body from now on. Using your DNA, we created a
new body for you as a blue giant. With Crunch still asleep, I'm
going to teach you to morph from your new body as a blue giant to
an Ork and back again. Only you will have the ability to morph.
Crunch will be controlled within your body, but you may allow him
time to be himself as long as he obeys the rules we set down for
him. We'll discuss it more in the days to
come, but right now we have work to do. Mace,
you and Picard go to Billy Gog Groats apartment and bring back
Gog, our two guard bulls, Thor and Zeus, and Joe. Tell them their
master wishes to speak with them. Don't tell them any more. Do you
understand?" Billy asked.
"We understand, Master Billy. You want Willie to be a surprise for
Joe," Mace said.
"Exactly. Now off with you men, and we'll see you in a few
minutes," Billy said. Mace and Picard left on the run. Billy
returned to Willie who was sitting up admiring himself in the
mirror. Poly handed him another cloth to wipe away his tears.
"Now, we have about thirty minutes before they return, let's train
you to morph," Billy spoke to Willie. Billy walked Willie through
the procedure several times until he could almost make the morph
on his own. Willie was shaky on his last attempt, but with a
little assist from Billy he made it. "That's enough for this
evening, Willie, you won't have to worry about morphing for
sometime, and Crunch won't wake up until later tomorrow. I will
drill you on the procedure several more evenings until you feel
free to make the morph for yourself, but each time I will put
Crunch in a deep sleep so he won't learn how," Billy explained.
"I don't know how to thank you, Master Billy," Willie said in an
ever deepening voice.
"I think the surprise in your brother's eyes will be enough
thanks, Willie – I hear them coming," Billy replied.
Mace and Picard ushered Joe, Gog, Thor, and Zeus into the room.
Joe took one look at the handsome younger blue giant standing
before him and knew immediately it was his little brother, Willie.
Gog, Thor, and Zeus were in awe. Gog put his hand to Joe's back
and whispered, "Go to your brother, Joe," he said. Joe made three
large steps to embrace his little brother. The blue giants were in
each other's arms crying, hugging, and kissing each other. It was
the first time in their long lives together Joe got to see his
younger brother in the flesh. It was a powerfully emotional
moment, and there wasn't a dry eye in the dungeon.
"Hosanna!" shouted Elmer, and the rest of the gathered men shouted
in response, "Hosanna, in the highest!"
"Thank you, Master Billy, but how is this possible," Joe asked.
"We will share everything with you tomorrow, Joe, but for tonight,
take your brother back to Gog's apartment and get to know him this
evening. Don't go to your home. I want you supervised and looked
after for a couple of days. I'm extending Thor and Zeus's time
away from the guard cattle to act, along with Billy Gog, Mace, and
Picard, as companions for you and Willie for the coming week. You
need the loving support of good people around you for a while who
care about you. Willie will explain to you what he knows, and Mace
and Picard can fill you in on the rest. They were witnesses to our
manipulation and creation of your little brother. Take tomorrow
off from any work, but Tuesday morning, I want you and Willie to
report to Project Manager Jethro. I want you to stay busy and try
not to think about the bad things which happened over the
weekend," Billy said.
Joe took Billy into his arms, hugged, and kissed him gently. "I
don't know how you managed this miracle, Master Billy, but I will
be eternally grateful. It's a honor and a privilege to be your
slave, sir," Joe said.
"I did it because I love and care about both of you, Joe, and
you're welcome. Go, take your brother with you, make sweet love to
him, and get to know him better. I'll check on you men tomorrow,"
Billy urged him.
Gog, Thor, Zeus, Mace, and Picard couldn't leave without their
personal thanks with more hugs and kisses. When they were gone,
there was a great hush came over the group of men. Garth and Mack
started clapping for Billy, and the other men followed suit. Billy
grabbed Vox's hand and held both their hands high, and they took a
bow together. The men went crazy applauding, whistling, and
stomping their boots. It was a wonderful end to one of the most
exciting days anyone could remember. It was time for Billy to see
to his guests and say 'farewell' to his extended family.
"Master Billy, you've had a long, rough weekend, and if it's all
the same to you, I think I'll return with Bubba to his ranch to
stay the night. He promised to teach me to shed my wings. It will
be one less chore for you," Jack McCormack said.
"I have faith in Bubba. If he could transport you three men over
here to buy a dress for his Aunt Helen, he can teach you to
de-wing," Billy said and smiled.
After many more hugs and stolen kisses, the Breedlove contingency
left the ranch. Billy told Jethro he would expect him on the job
the next morning. Pete didn't say much on the way back to Elmer's
ranch. He was sitting next to his son. Oatie noticed Pete had a
radiant glow about him. He watched his dad decline in looks and
health after he divorced Oatie's mother, Janice. He remembered how
he yearned to go to his dad and tell him how much he wanted to
love him. He considered asking Pete to love him as he was, and not
how he imagined Oatie should be. Oatie was
glad he followed his grand-dad's advice and let the sleeping dog
lie. Now Pete looked like a strong, stalwart, middle-aged cowboy
just beginning his journey into the prime of life. To Oatie, Pete
was as sexy as ever, but he harbored no desires for his birth dad.
He was fully satisfied with Jethro.
"You're awfully quiet, Pete. How do you feel?" Oatie asked.
"Like I been born again, but for real this time; and, it didn't
take no bible thump'n preacher scaring the crap out of me to make
me a believer. I saw it for myself. I believe in what I witnessed
this weekend, but I don't think on it as a religious experience.
It certainly contained many of the same elements, but it was the
sense of belonging to a family who believed in the same goals and
ideals what impressed me the most," Pete said, "I know I ain't
never told you before – mainly because we never were together long
enough to talk since I turned my back on you – I'm proud of you,
Oatie, and your accomplishments. I know, with the help of your
granddad, you developed a tough hide to survive what you went
through, and even now, my opinion probably don't mean much to you,
but I just thought I'd let you know, for what it's worth," Pete
"Thanks, Pete. You might be surprised how much your words mean to
me. They ain't like the horn what Joshua blew at Jericho. My walls
didn't come tumbling down. Just like I had to build my walls
strong and impenetrable day by day, it will take me a good while
to remove them, but your words are a start in the right direction.
I'm glad you decided to join us today, and I'm glad granddad
reached out to you to give you another chance. I just want you to
know, even though I look upon Elmer as my master and bull, he
never would have made you the offer if I didn't agree with him.
This weekend we lowered our barriers for
you and gave you a chance to look into our world. Billy was
sincere when he told you before we left, he hoped he might see
more of you around his ranch. Like you got your life together,
take it one day at a time," Oatie said.
"I will, Oatie. I ain't dread'n going to work tomorrow like I
usually do. I got me a lot to think about while I'm working – good
things – wonderful things – amazing things," Pete said and smiled.
"Would you believe me if I told you, you only scratched the
surface?" Oatie asked.
"I would believe you," Pete replied.
* * * * * * *
Billy asked his guest angels, Garth and Mack, about their
preference in lodging. Would they prefer separate rooms are would
they like to bunk-it-in together? They looked at each other and
Mack nodded for Garth to speak, "One room with a large bed will be
find, Master Billy," he replied.
"Clyde – Balthazar take our guests to the room next to yours. It's
quite large with a sitting room, huge bedroom, and private bath. I
think they will be comfortable there. Poly and Cass go with them
and check out the room to make sure they have everything they need
– and I mean everything. When you finish wing-up and transport to
the line cabin for the night. Our husband has need of you," Billy
said and grinned at them. Billy shook their hands and bowed to
each angel, "It's a pleasure and an honor to have you visit with
us, good sirs. You're invited to remain with us as long as you
like. I hope you will enjoy your stay," Billy said.
"If it's anything like what we witnessed this afternoon and
evening, we're sure we will enjoy ourselves, Master Billy," Mack
"Let's hope for less excitement and more quality time together,
Gentlemen," Billy said.
* * * * * * *
Bubba took Jack to the wing dump area and taught him to discard
"I got Master Billy's okay to de-wing, so's we can drive over to
my place. After we get there and relax a bit, I'll go though it
step-by-step with you and practice transporting around the ranch,"
"I'd appreciate it, big Brother," Jack said and grinned.
After they gathered Helen and packed her several boxes of dresses
and other lady things in the back, Bubba told Brute to climb in
They talked on the way back. "Did you have a good time, Aunt
Helen?" Bubba asked.
"I enjoyed it very much, Bubba. They didn't treat me like a
'thing' – like I was strange. They treated me like another member
of the family, and encouraged me to join in and help with
everything. It was a nice feeling to be included. I learned a lot
from them, and I think they learned some things about me. Mistress
Kate, Mistress Zelma, and Master Billy invited me to return when
you would allow me. I hope you do include me, Bubba, it would mean
a lot," Helen said.
"Ain't no problem, Aunt Helen. You're welcome to go anytime you
like," Bubba said.
"I think your wings are so pretty, Jack," Helen complimented Jack.
"Thanks, Aunt Helen. I didn't see another pair to compare with
them. I'm rather proud of them myself. The visiting angels found
them particularly interesting. I think I'm going to enjoy them
once I learn the basics. I learned from my big brother
not to mess around with them until I know what I'm doing," Jack
said and laughed.
"All's well what ends well," Bubba shot back.
"Amen to that, big Brother," Jack replied and laughed.
After they helped Helen carry her boxes out to the great whale and
said their 'good-nights,' the cowboys and Brute returned to the
house. They were exhausted, showered, and got ready for bed. Bubba
put Brute between them and told Jack the big beastie would act
like an old-time bundling board to keep them from committing
crimes against nature on each other.
"What's to keep us from jump'n poor Brute's bones like a couple of
horny toads?" Jack asked and laughed. Brute thought it was funny,
"Nothing! In fact, I plan to have me some watcher tit to take the
edge off them herbs we drank in that tea. That's some powerful
shit, but I liked it. Watching Master Billy work on Crunch and
Willie was like watching a sci-fi movie or Alice in Wonderland.
Master Bull had to keep telling me to close my mouth and wipe the
drool off'n my chin," Bubba said and laughed, "Fortunately, my
handsome beastie's got his'self two faucets, so feel free to help
yore'self to some fine watcher milk, little Brother," Bubba added
Brute thought he died and went to heaven having his two fledglings
hooked-up to his teats and sucking away like two shoats on a sow.
At one time or another during the night, he had one of his
charges' arm or both thrown over him to hold him tight like they
were floating on a calm night-sea and he was their life-raft.
Bubba's new bed was like sleeping on a cloud, and they awoke the
next morning rested and refreshed, ready for a new day and

Billy and Nick were exhausted by the time they transported
themselves and Boomer back to the line cabin. They barely had a
chance to relax when Poly and Cass joined them. They immediately
took Boomer off to the shower to begin his nightly grooming, and
for a little while Billy and Nick were alone together.
"Proud of you, Son," Nick whispered as he pulled Billy close and
bussed a kiss on his neck behind his ear.
"I couldn't a done it without you and our family, Pa," Billy said.
"You too tired to do a short program this evening, Kemosabe?" Nick
"Oh, hell, no, Tonto! Tired? Yes. Too tired? Never! Short program?
I don't think so. After them herbs and the weight of
what-to-do-about-Crunch off my back, I'm ready for the long
program wiff' one of my pa's special triple salchow-throws in
which I land and spin on his big red demon-cock three times before
I make it disappear like a magic act. I'll make a graceful landing
without nary a bounce like a dying swan to win perfect tens across
the board from our panel of judges out there in the universe,"
Billy said firmly, "They's just gotta' be a gold-medal for a
cowboy proudly mounting his demon-dad to bring him a little
pleasure and comfort," he added and laughed.
"In the name of some unknown God, I do so love me some cowboy
bullshit," Nick said and laughed.
"Do you think we should get us one a them star-making bells to sit
beside our bed, Pa?" Billy asked.
"Couldn't hurt none. Hank and Buck's got one next to their bed and
Mistress Kate shared with me she and Ms. Zelma hear it ring almost
ever' night," Nick replied, and they fell together laughing, "More
so lately, since Hank's got his'self a new toy to play with," Nick
added, and they laughed some more, "Does this have something to do
with that news report of three new stars what was born last night
in the Milky Way?" Nick asked.
"Yeah," Billy replied, "do you think my in-laws had something to
do with it?" Billy asked.
"Ain't no doubt in my mind. They's powerful Ancients, and I know
they's proud of you and Boomer," Nick replied.
"You think we should return the favor, Tonto? Would it be proper
universal etiquette?" Billy asked with a grin.
"Don't know much about the etiquette behind star-making, but it
would be a nice gesture; however, we can't send just one. We'd
have to make two, but I hope you realize they got to be two of our
very best couplings. No half-ass fucks --
we got to really nail 'um," Nick said and grinned wickedly.
"When was the last time we shared a half-ass fuck, Tonto?" Billy
"Never, Kemosabe! I swear ever' damn time it couldn't get no
better'n the last, but it always is," Nick declared.
"As high as I am right now, I think I could create a couple of
stars, but we ain't got us a bell to ring?" Billy lamented.
"Yeah, we do. You walk over to the door what goes into the barn
and ring your horse-bell you installed for Samson. It'll do the
trick. Hell, it 'ud wake the dead!" Nick exclaimed and laughed.
"I forgot about Samson's bell. I'll warn hubby and the kids to
ignore it when they hear it. I'll tell them we're making stars for
the Orion nebula. Let's not make them too big. I don't wanna'
destroy Orion's belt. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could be
just below the middle star of Orion's belt, Alnilam or Epsilon
Orionis, to make it look like a penis hanging down?" Billy asked
wickedly and they shared a laugh.
"You think them big watcher relatives of yours might think you's
calling them dicks, Kemosabe?" Nick asked.
"Naw, they know we's cowboys. We's just having a little fun,"
"The nicest thing about the star-making programs is they won't
allow no star where it might do harm to a populated galaxy," Nick
"It 'ud be our first attempt at star-make'n. You think we should
try, Pa?" Billy asked.
"Don't see why not. If they can't fit them in, they'll put 'um
some other place. Either way, we'll be doing our part," Nick
Billy decided, for a good star-making project they might benefit
from a cup of frozen left-over coffee laced with herbs. There was
enough they shared a cup with Boomer and the boys. They never
turned down a cup of herbs. Poly and Cass morphed into Moss and
Enoch, and they stayed until they finished their coffee. Billy
warned them to ignore the bell ringing, it would be him and Nick
making stars. He was surprised they understood perfectly and
didn't question him. They were used to the custom.
Nick morphed into his Kagoli demon-dad and the
two cowboys went at it like professional Rugby players in
a close-order huddle. Billy made an attempt to morph into Nick's
demon son. He was getting better, but he needed to absorb more
Kagoli DNA. He only managed to achieve a nice deep-red sunburn
color. If it weren't for Nick's fiery red color, you couldn't tell
where one's legs and arms began and the other resided. They were
putting their very best effort into their coupling, and Billy
wasn't lying back eating bon-bons like Cleo-patty on a barge
floating down the Nile while her conqueror-daddy, Caesar, was a'
huff'n and a' puff'n like the little engine what could. They
climbed to the crest of the ridge, reached the peak, and Billy
heard his surrogate dad groan like a wounded buck as he filled his
boy's ass with good hot creamy Kagoli demon-dad gizz. At the same
moment, Billy erupted like Casey Jones' oil can he used to keep
old engine number nine running smooth, on time, and rolling down
the line. They pulled into the station, hit the air-brakes,
released their built up head of steam, and it was done. Billy let
out a long, low, mournful whistle, as he emptied the last of his
pride and pulled back on Nick's throttle to gratefully receive the
last of his offering. After Billy took a deep breath and got his
bearings, the demons parted for a few minutes, Billy walked over
to the door into the barn, rang the bell, and returned to his
demon-dad's waiting arms for the second ride. Billy wondered how
them Ice Capades' kids did two shows a day.
They had a few more sips of coffee and that was all Billy needed
for another round. Nick in his demon form had the same effect on
him as Jethro did for Oatie. Nick was so fucking hot, he curled
Billy's toenails. They didn't just do a repeat of the first show.
Nick knew how to make sex new and wonderful every time he
undertook to take his pleasure and bring comfort to his mate.
Billy thought after ten centuries Nick certainly should be the
most knowledgeable and adept sexual partner in the universe. Nick
never let Billy down and always acted like each coupling was more
important than the last. Billy knew it couldn't be any better than
the last, but he was wrong. Nick rode Billy down hard, grabbed his
soul, and wouldn't let go until he got what he wanted and gave
Billy what he needed. Once he hit, he growled for Billy to let go
and join him in his physical orgy of excess. Billy hit his moment
of bliss only a second or so later. They collapsed into each
other's arms and sang the last act of La Boheme together. It was a
touching moment as Billy left his lover alone in their bed to ring
the bell once more. It was the end of another great performance,
or so they thought.
Billy came back to bed, they made a little more love and talked
quietly of their successful coupling, and complimented each other
on their performances. They made a bit more love, but neither
seemed to be sleepy. They talked about their day and the
successful conclusion of the 'close-skillet' smack-down.
"When will we know if our star-making effort was successful?"
Billy asked with anticipation.
"We could walk outside and find Orion," Nick said.
"Pull yore' boots on, Pa," Billy said as he reached for his.
The dark-red cowboy-demon son, and his fiery-red demon-dad walked
out into a warm, beautiful spring night to be bathed in the light
of a full moon shining down on them making their skin glow. They
looked up to find Orion's belt, and sure enough, there were two
prominent new stars hanging in space below the middle star of his
belt. Nick laughed, but Billy was quiet. Nick looked at him
quizzically. "What's a matter, Son?" he asked.
"Oh, nothing. They're fine. They're okay, I guess, but after all
our hard work, our shared passion, pouring our hearts into our
performance, I'm just a little disappointed," Billy said.
"Whatever for?" Nick asked in desperation.
"Well, look at him! He ain't no cowboy! It ain't big enough!"
Billy exclaimed, and Nick bent over laughing.
"Get chore' ass back in the cabin, and we'll make him a gotdamn
cowboy!" Nick said still laughing.
"With a big head, Pa?" Billy asked.
"We'll do our best," Nick said, and they did. They rang the bell a
third time, and the great mythological god,
Orion, became a genuine stellar cowboy.
The next morning, sitting on the counter in the cabin were two
dozen boxes of fresh Hosanna Cakes and a small solid-gold bell
mounted on a simple wooden base, with a small golden hammer
attached to the base with a gold chain. There was a nice card in
an envelope which read, "For our Nephew and his thoughtful
husband, Billy Daniels and Billy's dad,
Nick Samuels," signed 'Gregor and Albrecht.'
* * * * * * *
The first to call any observatory and report the exciting new
phenomenon in the night sky was a young Chinese grad student, Mike
Wang, in Manitoba, Canada. The observatory confirmed his
observation, and immediately, the three stars became known as
Orion's Wang, Alpha, Beta, and Epsilon. Most of the news programs,
or what used to be news programs, explained the unusual
coincidence of the three stars in line beneath the middle star in
Orion's belt being named after a Chinese grad student and amateur
astronomer. Mr. Wang even recorded the once-in-a-life-time
phenomenon of the universe giving birth to not one, but three new
stars; all of which, he captured on video from his small hill-top
It was not the same over at Fox News. The sophomoric morons
supported by the corporate power elite, who were the barking dogs
for their right wing masters, couldn't talk seriously about the
phenomenon without breaking up, making cheap grade-school
comments, and snickering like bad boys who just smelled a fart at
recess on the playground. However, a couple agreed Orion's new
Wang was a large one; big enough to give any cowboy bragging
As everyone watched Mr. Wang's video the next morning they noticed
the final star in the trio was unusual with a phenomenon never
witnessed by astronomers before. It had a massive eruption from
the top and it shot out, and around until the magnetic force
pulled it back into its roaring furnace at the bottom. Not only
did it make it look bigger than the other two stars, but at a
distance, it looked like the head of a man's cock. The excellent
video taken through Mr. Wang's telescope revealed the reason.
"Hosanna, in the highest!" Nathan exclaimed quietly, "They even
made it with a ring through the head of his penis," he said in
"Are we a happy camper, Kemosabe?" Nick asked Billy.
"It's perfect, Pa," Billy said like the amen to a prayer.
* * * * * * *
Likewise, the news spread far and wide in all the galaxies. It was
no secret Master Billy and his unfairly maligned surrogate pa,
Nick Samuel, were the source of the new stars. They cherished the
videos of Billy and Nick's star-making coupling as an example of
some of the most powerful and fulfilling examples of love they
ever witnessed. The Gregori were thrilled with them and their
sentiment, and the Irin were in awe of them. Ten thousand more
young Irin volunteered to become Master Billy's slaves and ten
thousand more were turned away until further notice. After
witnessing Master Billy's incredible humanitarian solution to his
incorrigible Ork problem, the donation coffers of alms for support
and thanksgiving from those in the universe following the Billy
Daniels reality show, swelled to unbelievable proportions. The
amounts the two ambassador-angels related to Billy grew
logarithmically since their arrival.
That morning another fine looking ambassador-angel was sent to the
big ranch house while the family and their guests were having
breakfast. He appeared in the front hallway completely nude
wearing a pair of buckaroo boots. After he fell to his knees and
paid homage to Billy's boots, Billy pulled him to his arms and
kissed him. He returned Billy's affection in kind and seemed
overwhelmed to be in Master Billy's presence. He introduced
himself to Billy and his men as Ananias. Billy invited the visitor
to shed his wings, handed him a robe from the front hall closet,
and bid him join them for breakfast. Ananias knew
Garth and Mack and they exchanged greetings. They sat down to
enjoy breakfast, and he seemed eager and hungry to partake food
with the family. Although everyone was
curious about his arrival and why he came, they allowed Billy to
set the pace of finding out about him and his mission. Billy
didn't seem in any rush and inquired about his in-laws and if they
were healthy and were they pleased with his gift to them?
"The Lord High Chancellors are in excellent health, Master Billy,
but to say they were pleased would be an understatement. They were
as awed and thrilled with you and your family as any citizen on
Retikki Prime. We have been following your progress. Your recent
problem and elegant solution was phenomenal, to say the least. It
has created another problem my master's didn't foresee. The sums
gathered into your support funds, my worthy ambassador-angels
Garth and Mack related to you only yesterday, have become so
large, they are unsustainable for the two major planets looking
after you and your family's welfare.
"We must find other places to put the gold bullion flooding into
your accounts. I have been sent to collect my fellow angels, Garth
and Mack along with your business managers; Dociean, Dorcas, Roz, and Cowboy Andy; also your
personal slaves, Nick Samuels, Clyde, and Balthazar; Hank and
Buck; Boomer, Poly and Cass; extended family members, Enoch
Redbone; Moss and Tron Garrett, and your Uncle Nathan, sir. Oh,
yes, and one bio-technically engineered life form known as 'Helen
Kirkendall.' Optional members who would be welcome to participate
as advisers or alternates are Mrs. Zelma
Redbone and your Grandmother, Mrs. Daniels, and Roxanne Humana. The Irin and Grigori
have sent other ambassador-angels to Mr. McMartin and your gold
broker, Mr. Ernest Forthright Pennywise, your rare metals
merchant, to ask them to sit on your board of managers. They will
be instructed how to receive and what to do with the wealth the
gold represents without having to burden you with the problem. It
will be taken care of for you on your behalf and those of your
management will be handsomely rewarded for their time and effort.
Furthermore, I'm to tell you, if you're comfortable with Angels
Garth and Mack, they are to be permanently assigned to you and
will have direct contact with the Irin and the Grigori
on your behalf at all times for your convenience," Ananias said.
Billy was stunned. He sat for a moment and looked around at the
looks on his family's faces. "Okay, who wants to travel to Retikki
Prime?" Billy asked.
Every hand went up whose name was included in the angel's list.
Billy laughed. "All right, you can all go. You won't be gone long
anyway," Billy allowed.
"Isn't he cute?" Kate asked her family, "My
grandson said that just like he had a choice in the matter," she
allowed and everyone laughed.
"All right! All right, Grandma!" Billy conceded, "Clyde, after we
finish breakfast, I'd appreciate it if you would wing-up and fly
over to the Breedlove ranch to gather Roxanne and my bull. I think
he should accompany his bride-to-be, and I want him to be a member
of my board. Balthazar, if you would be so kind to fly to Bubba's
ranch and explain why we need his Aunt Helen for the morning, I'd
appreciate it. Bring him with you to accompany his aunt, and tell
him I want him to sit on my financial board as well," Billy said.
"Right away, Master Billy," Clyde said and Balthazar agreed.
"What will you do while we're away, Billy?" Tron asked and
"Don't you worry yore'selves none. I got plenty to do around here.
I'll have time to teach Willie what he needs to know to cope with
his internal Ork. I won't be idle," Billy assured them. "Oh, yes,
and Buck and Hank. See if you can find us some more herbs to last
us until we can grow our first crop. It's one of the first
construction jobs we got planned for our new town. We can be
growing while building," Billy said.
"We'll check our sources, sir," Buck replied.
"I'll go with you and Hank after breakfast to your room, Buck.
It's time I taught you how to make your own change from cow-person
to cowboy again," Billy said.
"I would appreciate it, Master Billy," Buck assured him.
"No problem," Billy said.
* * * * * * *
Balthazar arrived at the Kirkendall ranch in the downstairs front
hallway. It was still early morning. The sun was barely peaking
over the horizon. He didn't sense any movement and hollered for
Bubba. Jack awoke first from a deep sleep.
"Bubba! Wake up! I think we got company," Jack said, "Just a
minute! We ain't up yet!" Jack hollered back.
Bubba sat up and turned to put his feet on the floor. "Who the
hell could be in my house this early in the morning?" he asked
"I think it's Balthazar, one of Master Billy's guardian angels,"
"Balthazar! Is 'zat you?" Bubba asked loudly.
"Yes, sir, Master Bubba!" Balthazar hollered back.
"C'moan into the bedroom!" Bubba yelled.
Balthazar walked into the bedroom to find Jack and Bubba throwing
on their clothes. Brute was still in bed but he was awake. "I'm
sorry to wake you, Master Bubba, but Master Billy sent me to
gather you and your Aunt Helen. He's been contacted by the
Ancients on two different worlds and they requested your Aunt
Helen join a group of Master Billy's family to become financial
managers for him. Master Billy wants you to go with her and learn
about financial management along with his family and your aunt,"
Balthazar tried to
"We ain't et yet or had a chance to clean up, and I still got some
work to do with my little brother to teach him to wing-up and
transport," Bubba said, "I need to get someone to look after the
ranch. How long we gonna' be gone?" he asked.
"Anywhere from thirty minutes, to an hour," Balthazar said and the
two men looked at him and laughed.
"Balthazar tell you truth, my bairns," said Brute, "Time on their
world is different than on Earth. Not really different. Just a
different dilation. You can be on their world for a month of their
days and only an hour will pass here on Earth and vice-versa. They
can come to Earth and stay for an extended visit, but when they
get back very little time has passed," Brute explained.
"Will you go with us, Brute?" Bubba asked.
"I have to, Master, I'm Bubba's Brute. You must have your
protector with you at all times," Brute replied.
"Brute's right, Master Bubba. You won't be gone long enough to
worry about the ranch, and you got several other protectors to
watch for you. Master Billy wouldn't expect you to go without
Brute," Balthazar said.
"Give me a minute to get cleaned up," Bubba said.
"Of course, sir," Balthazar replied.
"I'm gonna' take off, Bubba. I got some things to take care of
this morning, and I need to check my mail,"
"I'll give you a call when we get back, Brother," Bubba said.
"Please do. I'd love to hear about your trip," Jack said pulling
on his boots.
"Master Billy said for you to drop by their ranch on your way back
to have breakfast. He said he would teach you what you need to
know about winging up and transporting, sir," Balthazar said to
"I'll take him up on that offer, sir, thanks," Jack said and waved
goodbye to Bubba. He walked over to Brute, gave him a hug and a
kiss on his cheek, "Thanks, Bubba Brute, for your wonderful milk
last night and your care of me while fledging," he said.
"You're welcome, Bairn Jack," Brute said.
* * * * * * *
Jack was still at the Daniels' ranch when Balthazar, Bubba, and
Brute materialized in the front hallway of the ranch house. They
walked into the kitchen area and sat down to breakfast. The rest
of the the family was finished but still drinking coffee keeping
Jack company. After he finished, Billy took Jack to another room
and had him wing-up and shed his wings several times. He had him
transport from place to place, and Jack learned quickly. By the
time they were through, Jack felt confident he could do it on his
own. The bull and his little heifer arrived with Clyde and ate
breakfast with Bubba and Brute. They were excited about the trip. Jack didn't see any need to see them off and
left to start his day.
"Keep lunch open for me, Brother!" Bubba hollered at Jack as he was leaving.
"I will, but I have my doubts about you returning before noon,"
"Don't, Jack," said Kate Daniels, "We'll be back within an hour,"
she assured him.
"You, I would believe, Ms. Kate," Jack said and laughed at the
look on Bubba's face.
Jack left and after the family cleaned the kitchen, they gathered
in the front hallway. The angel, Ananias, opened a great portal
and the designated members of Billy's family walked through. When the portal closed, Billy felt very much
alone, but he was in good spirits. He would have time to get some
personal things done he neglected taking care of for a good while.
He winged-up, transported to Captain Nick's ship. He was surprised
Jethro and the villagers were already on the job working with
their hero. Billy paid his respects, walked to Billy Gog Groat's
apartment, and knocked on the door. He was invited in and everyone
was glad to see him. They were just sitting down to breakfast. Billy joined them and had another cup of
coffee. "How was your first night together, Gentlemen?" he asked
Joe and Willie. Willie blushed and looked to
his big brother to speak for them.
"Like it was a wonderful dream. I kept asking my little brother to
pinch me to make sure I wasn't asleep, sir," Joe replied, "I can't
thank you enough, Master Billy," he added.
"And has Crunch woken up yet?" he asked Willie.
"Not yet, Master Billy," Willie replied.
"He might not for sometime. If he ain't awake by this evening, let
me know, and I'll wake him. It might be better if I'm around when
he does wake up to tell him what's happened to him and what the
ground-rules will be from now on. Do you feel comfortable enough
with your morphing?" Billy asked.
"Yes, sir, Mr. Goats worked with me yesterday after you left, and
said I'm getting pretty good at it. It was nice making love with
my brother in either form, but over the years I became used to
being a part of Crunch, and I like the Ork body. I know Joe does,
too," he said and blushed again.
"I won't deny it, but I got me a sweet-tooth for your nice
blue-giant body as well, little Brother," Joe said.
Billy told them to take the day to get to know each other, and
they could start work the next day. He wanted Thor and Zeus to
walk down to the gate to check on their second guard bulls and
report back to him later that evening. He said his goodbyes,
wished them well, and transported back to the ranch. He wanted to
do something for himself and climbed the stairs to the ballroom.
Billy uncovered the Steinway and opened it up. He sat down and
played for a little over an hour until he saw a bright flash of
light and heard the laughter of many voices in the downstairs
front hallway. Billy finished the piece he
was playing and began to close the piano. Before he lowered the
top, he found himself surrounded by about thirty Sun Bears looking
at him like he was a god. They knelt before him, and the sturdiest
male walked up to him. He knelt, and paid homage to each of
Billy's big boots. Billy reached down, put his hands under the
arms of the little male Sun Bear, and brought him up to his face.
Billy gently kissed him on his forehead.
"Welcome to Earth and the Daniels' ranch, little Brother," Billy
said sincerely and loud enough the rest could hear.
<< You please to play for us, Master Billy? >> the Sun
Bear sent to Billy in broken English.
"What's your name, my Brother?" Billy asked.
<< Seafoam-Sun, Master >> he replied.
"Well, Seafoam-Sun, help me open the beast again, gather your
family around, and I will be happy to play for you to welcome you
to your new life with us and your brothers and sisters," Billy
They did what they could to help Billy, and quietly sat around and
under the huge instrument. Billy sat Seafoam-Sun on one side of
the bench and his mate, Ali-kaboom-Sun, on the other. Billy was in
a Bach mood and played the Italian Concerto for them. They
marveled at his playing, but couldn't make a sound. Billy's family
gathered to listen and began to applaud and cheer for Billy after
he finished. The Sun Bears joined them. Clapping
their hands and cheering
in their minds, they rushed him, and
almost overwhelmed Billy. They each had to touch him or give him a
hug and a kiss. He was smothered for a while in Sun Bear love.
Billy couldn't have imagined a more appreciative or loving
"Okay, who's responsible for the herd of Sun Bears?" Billy asked
with a big smile on his face and a small Sun Bear child in each
"I'm afraid that would be me, Master Billy," Bubba held up his
"They don't look so good, Brother," Billy said.
"That's because they were found on a derelict freighter and
brought to Retikki Prime for rehabilitation. They were being kept
in a local zoo on the outskirts of a small town not on the main
paths of travel. The folks couldn't communicate with them and just
thought they's dumb animals. We stopped
there by accident and found them. Several of your family
recognized them immediately and struck a mental conversation with
them. I suggested we buy them and bring them home with us, sir,"
"You done good, Brother. With some good
food, freedom, and the encouragement of our other Sun Bears, we'll
have them in good shape in no time," Billy said.
The Sun Bears liked what they heard, clapped their small hands
together, and cheered silently for Master Billy.
"How long did you folks stay on Retikki Prime?" Billy asked.
"A month and a half, Dear," Kate replied, "We had a wonderful time
when we weren't working, but I assure you they worked our butts
off learning what they wanted us to know. Tom and your gold
dealer, Mr. Pennywise, were a great source of information. Billy
you have no idea what is about to happen, but we're ready for it,"
"How long were we gone from here, Billy?" Bubba asked.
"A little over an hour. Maybe an hour and a half," he replied.
"I need to call Jack and see if we's still on for lunch," Bubba
said and grinned.
Billy asked the Sun Bears if they remembered any of their native
dances. They assured him they did. Billy remembered the melodies
and complex rhythms of each of their dances taught to him by the
other Sun Bears, and he began to play. They paired off into
several groups and danced their little hearts out with wild
abandon. They were duly impressed their new master knew their
ancient dances and could play them perfectly. It made them love
Billy and feel closer to the humans than any species they met
before. They felt like they were home.
* * * * * * *
"You back already, Bubba?" Jack asked.
"Billy said we weren't gone more'n an hour and a half, but we was
on Retikki Prime for a month and a half, Jack,"
"No!" Jack exclaimed.
"I shit you not, Brother. We brought back about thirty more a'
them little Sun Bears we like so much. They's in the ballroom
dancing their folk dances as Billy plays for them," Bubba said.
"We still on for lunch, Brother?" Jack asked.
"Sure, if'n you like. I'll be happy to take ma' little brother to
lunch. It's been a while. I'd like to see yore' ugly face again,"
"Can you transport over here? I got some official documents in the
mail this morning you need to take a look at, Brother. I can drive
us to lunch in town, and if you transport, you won't have to face
my guard-geese," Jack said and laughed.
"Anything but them damn devil birds," Bubba replied and laughed.
"See you in a bit, Brother," Bubba said
It was obvious, Bubba grew close to the Daniels' family during
their visit to Retikki Prime. He didn't have any problem leaving
Aunt Helen with the Daniels while he took off to have lunch with
Jack. While she was anxious to get back to the belly of the great
white whale, she didn't seem the least frustrated Bubba would
leave her there for a while. She grew close to the Daniels as
well. Helen took a special interest in Roz
and admired her talents. Helen asked Roz if she would consider
visiting her after they returned and bring her viola with her? Roz
accepted her gracious invitation and told her she would be honored
to visit her home.
Bubba winged-up, transported to the front hallway of the McCormack
ranch, and Jack came to greet him in the same clothes he put on
that morning. Bubba couldn't help razz him. "Gees, Brother, you
could have changed clothes in a month and a half," he said and
grinned. He got a laugh out of Jack. "What chu' got to show me,
little Brother," Bubba asked.
"You ain't gonna' like it, Bubba. It may upset you. It upset me,
but I don't think it's much for us to worry about," Jack said,
took a manila mailing envelope from his coffee table, and began to
pull out the contents. "This is a demand to search your property,
including the barns, for valuable negotiable property you
inherited from your uncle," Jack said.
"Who would do something like that?" Bubba asked naively like he
Bubba's reaction temporarily stunned Jack, but then he recalled
how loving and trusting Bubba could be. "You only get one guess,
big Brother," Jack said in disgust.
"Womack?" Bubba asked surprised.
"E'aup, but that ain't the worst part, Bubba. Take a look at the
pictures inside," Jack urged him.
Bubba moved through the documents and came to picture after
picture of the inventions and works of art in his uncle's barns.
He was shocked and dismayed. "How? Who? What? When? Where?" he
managed to get out. "Ain't nobody I know what's got access to them
barns but me," Bubba said with fear in his voice.
"Didn't you tell me there was a duplicate set of keys to your
uncle's barns you couldn't find?" Jack asked, "And you found Earl
Hickson's truck tire prints after your house was ransacked?" he
"Oh, my God. Earl found them keys, took these pitchers, and gave
them to Womack," Bubba said.
"I'd bet my ranch on it, Brother," Jack said firmly.
