Chapter 135


Josh's blue pools slowly opened, a radiant light shining in his face.

The sun was shining through the windows, his body bathed in its warm light.

He sighed, stretching his taut body, feeling two arms wrap around him.

His eyes moved to his right side, staring into a handsome sleeping face.

Justin lay beside him, his arms around Josh's waist.

Josh smiled, feeling the warmth of the man's smooth body against his own.

He looked around the bed, the two alone in the middle of it.

The man beside him murmured, pulling Josh closer.

Josh felt a greater warmth against his thigh, its heat pulsating.

"Always ready to go is our Justy." he softly said, smiling, staring at his friend's beautiful face.

The man murmured, moving his body to his right, Justin now laying on his back, one of his arms releasing Josh.

Josh's blue pools scanned down his smooth muscular torso, taking in the remembered beauty of the younger man's Adonis like body.

His center was half covered by the sheets, Josh seeing the large tent showing.
He smiled, gently pulling the sheets back, Justin's whole body exposed.

Josh stared at the large shaft laying against Justin's abdomen, its end glistening with moisture.

Josh smiled, his fingers going to its end, feeling the wetness, moving them up to his lips, tasting Justin's essence.

"Dessert before breakfast, Joshy?"

Josh's eyes moved, staring into two green pools, a smiling face meeting his, Lance standing in the bedroom's doorway.

Josh blushed, Lance closing the door behind him, walking to the bed and sitting down on its edge.

"He's. . .I saw the beauty of. . ." Josh began to say, Lance moving forward, their lips meeting.

Josh felt a lot of love in that kiss, the two slowly breaking their tenderness.

"Waking up beside him always gives you a need to love all of him. As you three loved me last night." Lance smiled, Josh softly smiling at him.

"I remember his beauty, Lance. It's matched by yours. And our Lucky's." Josh said, Lance smiling.

"He loves to be awakened by stimulation. I'm fine with you wanting to do it." Lance said, the man rubbing his hand across Josh's smooth chest.

"That's your happiness, Lance." Josh smiled, Lance smiling back.
"It's all of ours now, my Joshua." Lance said, Josh smiling more.

"Sweet. Gimme that monster!" he said, Lance laughing softly.

"Your man welcomed my morning with that loving deed, Josh." Lance smiled, Josh smiling more.
"It's a moving experience. I love his awakening love." Josh said, Lance smiling and kissing his cheek.

"Where is the love of my life?" Josh said, Lance smiling at him.

"He woke me with his love about an hour and a half ago. I then helped him shower, and now he's downstairs relaxing. Colton's got breakfast in hand, I'm just making the rounds upstairs to awaken everyone."

"Our ever-giving Lancy. I see the happiness on your face." Josh smiled, Lance smiling widely.

"His love is so different, Josh. He's. . .he's so intense. You become lost in the beauty of it."
"I always do, Lance. He is amazing."

Lance smiled, leaning forward and kissing Josh on the lips again.

"I love you, Josh. Thank you for last night. For giving me his love and yours, for letting me experience the beauty of it." Lance said, Josh seeing soft tears in his green pools.

"His love is all of ours, Lance. I have the core of it; you and Jus have just as great a part of it."
Lance smiled, his green pools looking towards his sleeping man.

"The same goes for all of us now, Joshy. We all have our soulmate's center and we have the beauty of the other two of our soul."
Josh smiled, leaning forward and kissing the man's lips again, the two both softly sighing.

"I love you and Jus, Lancy. I would never do anything to one of you without the other's love present." Josh said, Lance smiling.

"We all love each other, Josh. Let the inhibitions go. The other three of your heart need our tiger's love." Lance said, Josh smiling.

"I'll let you wake up our Justin. Taste all of his love. I see the need and love in your blue eyes. Dibs on that love later." Lance smiled, rising from the bed.
Josh smiled up at him, the man moving on the bed, pulling the sheets off his own naked body, Lance taking in all of the two men of love laying in front of him.
"We're both yours, Lance. As we are Lucas'. We'll all welcome your love."

"I'm going to love all of your beauty. I have others to awaken. Enjoy our Justin's love. Wake up his delicious beauty." Lance smiled, the man walking out of the bedroom, closing the door behind him.

Josh smiled, his heart filled with a newer love.

His eyes went back to Justin's sleeping form.

He scanned down his beautiful body, his hand going forward, wrapping around Justin's still enlarged center.

The man murmured, moving a little but still remaining asleep.

"Like old times, my Jus. Thank you, Lucas and Lance for giving me all of my dreams."

Josh smiled, his body moving.


Josh climbed on top of the younger man in the bed, Justin moving, his arms wrapping around his old friend.

Josh smiled, feeling Justin's clinging love, his lips then meeting Justin's.

Justin's mouth opened, Josh diving into it, his tongue meeting Justin's.

Justin moaned, the two kissing deeply.

Josh broke the kiss, two blue pools of love opening, staring into his own blue pools.

"Josh? Morning. . .morning, Joshy." Justin said, Josh smiling at him, kissing his nose.

"Good morning, my Justin." he said, his fingers going across Justin's cheek.

"What time is it?" he said, Josh smiling and kissing his chin.

"Don't have a clue, sexy."
Justin smiled, feeling the warmth of the man on top of him.

"Where are the other two of our love?" he said, looking around the bed.

"Lucas is downstairs relaxing, freshly showered and loved. Lance came into the room a few minutes ago. He's waking everyone up for breakfast. He left it to me to wake you up. He told me to enjoy the deliciousness of your beauty, his own words. I decided to wake you with my love." Josh smiled, Justin smiling at him.

"He said that?"

"Yes, beautiful. He loves both of us, and knows we love each other and him. I'm here to love both of you. And my beautiful Lucas." Josh said, tears showing in his blue pools.

"We all love you, Josh. I remember the beauty of your love. And Lucas' last night was so different. So intense and moving."
Josh smiled, his fingers running across Justin's smooth chest.

"Lance said the same thing. His love is singular in its intensity and giving totality. I'm glad that the two of you can now experience it. As I am glad I can now love both of you."

"I love you, Josh. Always have. Lance loves you too. Oh God, I'm so happy!" Justin said, his own eyes filled with tears.

"I love you, Justin. And I love our Lance. His beauty is as beautiful as yours." Josh said, his fingers moving, rubbing down Justin's chest, wrapping around Justin's hard shaft.

"Oh, Josh!" Justin softly said, Josh smiling at him.

"I could have devoured you in your sleep, Jus. But I prefer you awake to feel all of my love." Josh said, kissing his lips softly, Justin softly moaning again.

"I love Lance, Jus. I'll always do as he says." Josh said, his lips meeting Justin's in a deeper kiss.

Justin became lost in the old familiar love, his old friend's hand moving across his torso, tweaking his nipples, Justin moaning again.
The two broke their kiss, Josh staring into his blue pools.
"Welcome back to my love, Jus. I'm going to love you forever." Josh said, Justin tearing up.

"Shed no tears, beautiful. That's not the wetness I need."
Justin gasped as Josh went for his center, his mouth enveloping the long hard shaft.

Justin moaned, his fingers going through Josh's black thick hair, Josh's hands roaming across Justin's chest heading for his nipples again.

Justin smiled, awash with the returned love of a man who filled his soul once with deep love.

That love was now returned threefold.


Lucas smiled, looking up from the table, Colton's blue pools meeting his violet.

"I feel useless just sitting here." Lucas said, Harry patting his shoulder.

"Leave me to my work, Dad." Colton smiled, standing at the stove, stirring the frying pans on its burners.

"You're relaxing, Luke. Dr. Lance's strict orders." Alain smiled, he and Harry sitting at the kitchen table with Lucas.

Lucas sighed, sipping at the cup of coffee in front of him.

The other two men smiled at him, Lucas softly smiling back.

"He's becoming just as much a taskmaster as my Joshy." Lucas said, the two men laughing.

"We all love you, Luke. We want you back in fine form. You can't do all you could before, you just have to adjust to that. We're all here to help you." Alain said, Lucas nodding his head.

"I know, Alain. But that doesn't mean I have to like it."

The two men looked at him with compassion, Alain patting his arm.

"You hired me as your personal assistant. I'm here at your disposal. For anything you need me to do." he said, Lucas smiling at the handsome black man.

"Damn! Where were you at shower time?"

Alain laughed, Finn and Skyler walking into the room, Finn in his usual morning attire.

"I was too busy cleaning the drainpipes of furballs." Alain said, Finn raising an eyebrow, Lucas and Harry laughing.

"I do not shed!" he said, Alain laughing.

"Only your love, sexy."
Finn smiled, wrapping his arms around Skyler.

"Got that right, Alain." he said, kissing his fiancée's cheek.
Colton smiled at the Welshman, Skyler kissing the young man's cheek.

"Smells divine, sugar!" she said, Colton smiling widely.

"Can you butter some toast, Sky?" he said, Skyler nodding her head, Finn's arm going around her.

"You sit down, my love. I'll do it." Finn said, kissing her cheek, Skyler smiling at her man.

"I could get used to being pregnant. The servants I acquire." she said, Lucas laughing, Finn smiling at him, blowing a kiss towards Skyler.

"You and the vegetable there are both relaxing." he said, smiling at Lucas, the young man raising a finger, Finn laughing.

"I have a carrot you can chew on, Sky's biatch!" Lucas said, everyone laughing.

Finn grinned, blowing the young man a kiss as well.

"Just kidding, Lukey!"

"I know, Frankie."

Finn smiled, heading for the toaster.

Lance, Trish and Andrew walked into the room, Lance smiling at Lucas.

"That's everyone up. Josh and Justin should be down shortly." he smiled, sitting down at the table beside Lucas, the young man smiling at him.

"So which one was up?" Finn smirked, Lance blushing.
Lucas smiled, staring at his Welsh friend.

"That would be our Justin, I believe. But Beamy will take care of that." he said, Lance smiling at him.

"Ugh! Too much info, pervs!" Finn said, covering his ears.

Lucas laughed, smiling at his friend.

"We four are one now, guys. Our love is our own. Private and fulfilling." Lucas said, Lance staring at him.

Everyone nodded their head, Finn looking at his friend.

"Understood, Luke. We wish you all the happiness your hearts' desire." he said, Lance smiling at him.

"Thank you, Finn. Lucas' love is in my heart, as are Josh's and my Justin's. It's the center of all of our happiness." he said, Lance smiling at him.

"Got that right, my love."
Lance's green eyes looked towards the doorway, Justin and Josh both standing there, their faces filled with wide loving smiles.

Everyone smiled at them, Finn staring at Justin who'd spoken.

"You look beyond happy, Timberlake." he said, Justin smiling at him.

"It's a great start to a great day, Finny." he smiled, Josh kissing his man's lips, Lucas leaning up to him.

"Missed you this morning, my love." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Will you marry me, beautiful?"

 "Not without food in my stomach, sexy." Justin said, sitting down in his man's lap.

Lucas laughed, Josh smiling at his friend, his blue pools returning to his soulmate's violet pools.

"With all of my bigger soul of love, beautiful." he said, Lucas smiling, the two kissing again.

"Okay, not over the food!" Finn said as Colton set a large plate of bacon on the table, Finn at the counter buttering slices of toast.

"Same goes for the hair on our toast, Chewy!" Colton said, everyone laughing except Lucas and Josh, the two still kissing.

The two broke their kiss, Justin's blue eyes meeting Lucas' violet.

"On to that great day, Justin." Lucas smiled, the man smiling at him, his love showing in his eyes.

Colton smiled, setting more platters on the table, Lucas' violet pools quietly staring at him.


Finn sighed, Skyler rubbing his now t-shirt-covered abdomen.

"Three plates, my love?" she said, Finn smiling at her.

"Energy for my babe's big day, sweetie." he said, Skyler smiling, Lucas looking at her.

"What time's your appointment?" he said, Skyler smiling.

"At ten-thirty, Luke. Final prenatal exam and ultrasound. Then we start the classes, twice a week."

"You have courage, my friend. Going in with your love for that amazing moment." Alain said, smiling at Finn.

"I want to see my son come into this world, Alain. I want to be a part of his life for every moment." Finn said, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"The surprise of that love will echo through your heart for many years, Finny. The Delaney family will be filled with love. Loud, rambunctious, running children of happiness." Lucas smiled, sipping at his coffee.

Finn smiled widely.

"Me a father? Can you believe that?" he said, Skyler kissing his cheek.

"It's as amazing as me being a mother." she said, Trish kissing her cheek, seated beside her.

"You both love children, guys. And we're all here to help. That boy's going to have some wonderful aunts and uncles." she smiled, Skyler tearing up.

"We've all grown so much, Trishy. All of us finding love, soon to marry. Me having a child."

"That child won't grow up alone, Sky." Colton said, washing the dishes at the kitchen sink, everyone looking at him with surprise, he smiling.

"I'm sure Trish will have a child. Her and Andrew's love can't not go on." he said, Trish smiling at him.

"For sure, Colt. Drew and I both want children." she said, Lucas smiling at his sister.

"I'm going to so spoil all of them." he said, Trish and Skyler smiling at him.

"We should get ready, my love." Finn said, Skyler nodding, Finn helping her up from her chair, his arm going around her.

The two smiled, walking out of the kitchen.

Lucas smiled, his eyes meeting Colton's blue.

"I'll start baking after breakfast, Luke." he said, Lucas nodding.

"Baking?" Harry said, Lucas smiling at him.

"We're having Gio over for dinner tonight. Colt's offered to do the meal and dessert." Lucas said, the young man smiling at him, the telephone going off, the young man answering it, hitting a few buttons.

"Uncle Gid's here, I'll let him in." he smiled, walking out of the room.

"Something going on, guys?" Alain said, looking at Lucas, then Josh and Justin.

"My love as usual, Alain." Lucas smiled, everyone smiling at him.

Lucas' eyes looked towards the doorway.

"Perhaps something more." he softly said, only Josh hearing him.

Their eyes met, Lucas kissing his lips.

Lucas smiled, Gideon, Grayson and Judge Navarro walking into the kitchen, Gideon's arms around his smiling nephew.

"Hello, gentlemen. Have you had breakfast?" Lucas said, all three shaking his hand.

"Yes, we have, Lucas." Grayson said, Lucas smiling at him, seeing his arm around Gabriel.

"How about coffee on the patio then, everyone?" Colton said, the three agreeing, Lucas smiling and wheeling his wheelchair around the table; Justin, Josh and Lance following him.

Everyone else smiled, walking out onto the patio.


"The trial's officially finished, Lucas. I've documented the final report, all testimony substantiated. You're officially a free man." Gabriel smiled, Gideon handing Lucas some documents he'd pulled out of a briefcase he'd carried into the house with him.

"I've always been free, Gabriel. My heart and soul were always confident that the path would walk its true course. And it has. It's the future we now should focus on."

The two lawyers smiled at the young man, Gabriel's blue eyes filled with soft awe.

"The funerals have been taken care of as per your wishes, Luke. The two were cremated and buried with their brother." Gideon said, Lucas nodding, everyone staring at him with surprise, his violet pools meeting everyone's.

"They had to have a respectful ending. The three can now find an eternal peace on their own path ahead."
"That's more than Raymond Harris deserved, Luke." Grayson said, Lucas nodding.

"Everyone, in the end, deserves respect, Gray. I'll always show that." Lucas said, Josh's hand going in his.

"Your love is unending, my love." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"And its center is yours, my love." he said, Justin and Lance both smiling at him.

Lucas' eyes met Grayson's again.

"What of Haven, Gray? Were you able to implicate him in anything?" he said, Grayson shaking his head no.

"Unfortunately no, Lucas. He covered his involvement with Strassman and Harris diligently. Nothing can be proven. The money was intelligently transferred through Strassman." Grayson said, Lucas nodding.

"He is intelligent and resourceful. But I am more." he said, Gabriel staring at him.

"That man is a monster, Lucas. I saw that years ago." he said, Lucas nodding his head again.

"Monsters have a way of showing themselves in the end. He will answer for much. For my family's sake I will see that done."

"You need to stay clear of him, Lucas."  Grayson said, staring at the young man with protective love.

"I will have no contact with him unless he warrants it. And if that happens, my protective love and magic will always protect myself. And all of you." Lucas said, Colton smiling at him, the young man seated between Justin and Gideon.

"We all know that, Dad." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Yes, you do." Lucas said, smiling at the young man.

Colton softly smiled, his blue eyes looking around at everyone.

Finn and Skyler walked out of the house, the Welshman smiling at Alain and Harry.

"We're ready ,guys." he smiled, Alain smiling at the young man.

"But why the clothes, beautiful?" he grinned, Finn rolling his eyes.

"Keep it calm, horn dog. We need to get going." he said, Alain and Harry rising from the table.

"Your chauffeur awaits." the black man smiled, everyone saying goodbye to them.

Lucas watched the four go, his violet pools meeting Colton's blue.

"So when are you leaving, Gray?" Lucas smiled, Gabriel's hand going in the older man's.

"We leave for Vermont first thing in the morning. It will be nice to see the old place again." the judge said, Grayson smiling at him.

"It was once our home, Gabriel." he said, the man smiling at him.

"The love still remains there, as it now does in your hearts. Walked paths will always echo remembered love." Colton said, the two men smiling at him.

"Well said, Colton." Grayson said, the two men smiling at Lucas.

"Would you like to stay for lunch, my friends?" Lucas said, the two men smiling but saying no.

"We have to pack, and do some stuff." Gabriel said, Lucas smiling at him.

"The stuff of our hearts lightens our souls. Its beauty echoes in our desires." Lucas said, the two men smiling at each other.

"That it does, Lucas. And my young tiger's beauty is as I always remembered it." Grayson said, Colton smiling at the two men.

Lucas' violet pools were watching the young man.

"To see that love would stoke any heart." he said, Colton's eyes meeting his.

"Have a safe trip, my friends. Give my grandparents my love." Lucas said, the two men smiling, both gently hugging everyone around the table, Lucas the last to receive their farewells.

Both men left with smiles, Lucas' love in their hearts.


"I should start on the cake." Colton said, beginning to rise up from the patio table, Lucas staring at him.

"Sit for a moment, son. We need to bring the truth into the open." Lucas said, the young man staring at him.

"I. . .I never meant to do it, Luke." the young man softly said, everyone looking between the two with confusion.

"Do what, Colt?" Gideon said, the young man's eyes lowering.

Lucas sighed, the young man wheeling his chair around the table, stopping beside Colton's chair.

"Come here, little imp of love." Lucas said, his face showing a soft smile of love.

The young man moved from his chair, sitting down in Lucas' lap, the young man's arms wrapping around him.

"Your heart is young of love, and giving of beauty, Colton.  The legality of it isn't the whole issue. The greater issue is what lays in your heart." Lucas said, Justin staring at the two young men.

"It. . .it's all so beautiful, Luke. When. . .when can I experience that?" the young man softly said, Lucas' hand rubbing his back.

"Life is a path of discoveries, my young friend. What you've seen of love's path will never hold a candle to the love you yourself will experience."
"How long have you known?" he softly said, Lucas kissing the young man's cheek.

"Since the moment we met, as I already told you. Your magic's a mirrored reflection of my own, Colton. I will always be able to sense you, hidden or not."
"What are you talking about, my love?" Josh said, Colton quietly looking at him, then at Justin and Lance.

"I. . .I seek your forgiveness, my friends." Colton softly said, Gideon looking at his nephew.

"Forgiveness for what, Colt?" Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Our young friend here follows love. Or should I say the magic of his soul follows it. But his youthful, opening mind guides that magic." Lucas said, his violet pools going around the patio, everyone staring at him and Colton.

"What does that mean, Luke? What did you mean magic hidden or not?" Gideon said, staring at his nephew.

Colton's eyes met Lucas' violet, the young man kissing his cheek.

"It means that I'm not the only one with a giving, loving, wandering, magical soul." Lucas said, Colton blushing.

Everyone looked surprised as well as confused.

"In the darkness of night a solitary shadow has walked among us, everyone. A shadow of watching need. A youthful shadow of searching love." he said, Colton lowering his blue eyes.

"What are you talking about?" Gideon said, looking at Colton.

The young man's blue pools raised, everyone seeing a soft glow in those blue pools.

"My magic is strong, Uncle Gid. I've found another surprising gift within it." Colton said, Lucas rubbing his back.

"I found a gift I've used with not-so-glowing intentions." the young man said, Lucas smiling at him.

"The intentions were good, Colt. The reality of the line you crossed depends on what you've seen." Lucas said, their eyes meeting.

"I didn't. . .I couldn't watch. . ." Colton softly said, Lucas smiling at him.

"That answer came from your soul, my friend. Looking upon beauty without invading the greater center of it shows your truer heart. I forgive you the transgressions against my loves." Lucas said, Josh looking at his man.

"What's going on, Lucky? What has Colton been doing?"

The young man sighed, looking at Justin, Lance and Josh, then at his uncle.

"My soul can walk free of my physical being."

Everyone looked surprised, Gideon's blue eyes meeting his nephew's blue.

"You. . .you can move as Lucas did?! Into another person's soul?" Gideon said, Lucas smiling around at everyone.

"No, Gid. Colton's magic is even more matured." Lucas said, Colton staring at him.

"Matured, Luke?" Lance said, staring at the young man with awe.

"Yes, Lance. Colton has discovered a new gift within the magic. Our young friend here can move out of his body. His soul can move on its own."

The patio went dead with silence, all eyes on the young man seated in Lucas' lap.

"That. . .that's unbelievable, Colton!" Lance said, Justin staring at the young man with silent awe.

The young man blushed, all eyes on him.

"I don't know why or how it happened. One night, when I was seven, I woke up hungry. I went downstairs at home and got a couple of cookies. I walked back upstairs and walked back into my bedroom. I saw myself laying in bed sound asleep. I was myself but not myself. My. . .my soul was separate from my body somehow." he softly said, Lucas still rubbing his back.

"Since that. . .since that young?" Gideon softly said, Lucas looking at him.

"Your nephew has always been deep within the magic, Gideon. As he himself has always known. He used this gift in his steadfast protection of his family after that. The shadow walking around that sleepy town was in fact his walking soul. That's why none of you could see him that easily when we were there. As the monster could not totally sense him as well." Lucas said, Colton looking at him.

"But you could." Colton said, Lucas smiling at him, kissing his cheek again.

"I could feel your magic, Colt. Its aura acts as an infrared image to these magic eyes. I could always see the hidden shadow."

The young man nodded, looking at Lucas.

"That's how you clued into what I've been doing."

Lucas smiled, everyone looking at the two.

"Yes, little imp of love. You didn't have to do that to find the truth of what you've been searching for. All you had to do was talk to each of them, or myself. We've always told you that we're all here for you with those types of questions." Lucas said, Colton softly nodding his head.

"What's been going on, Luke?" Trish said, Andrew's arm around her, the young woman smiling at the young man in Lucas' lap.

"Nothing you and Drew need to worry about, Trishy. Your love isn't the love our young friend needed to witness." Lucas said, Colton softly blushing.

Justin's blue eyes met Lucas' the young man smiling at him, Justin sitting up in his chair.

His blue eyes met Colton's blue, the young man blushing a little more.

"Have you been spying on us in our moments of love, Colt?" he said, the young man blushing more.

Josh's eyes met Lucas' violet, the young man's face showing a deep look of love.

"Yes, Justin. I've been watching you all at night." the young man said, moving his eyes towards Gideon.

"Myself as well, Colt? Me and Nick?" he said, Colton nodding his head softly.

"The love you all show each other is so beautiful. I've watched your beautiful love. I. . .I wanted to see. . .to know. . ." he softly said, everyone seeing the soft tears showing in his eyes now.

Justin moved from his seat, walking up to the young man.

Colton looked up at him, Justin's hand going to his shoulder.

"You shouldn't be eavesdropping, Colton. No matter how magical and amazing you do it. But I'm not mad at you. I hoped you enjoyed what you wanted to see?" he said, Colton looking up at him.

"You. . .you must believe me, I didn't. . .I would never. . ." He softly said, Justin rubbing his shoulder.

"We believe you, Colt. We all know you're a loving young man who's been through a lot. But Lucas is right. We've all told you that we're all here for you to talk to. You don't have to sneak around and spy on our love. What's got you so bothered, our young friend?" Lance said, Justin smiling at him and Josh.

"I've watched all your love, the showing of it. Its visual beauty and the looks in all of your eyes. I wish. . ."

Lucas' hand went to Colton's other shoulder.

"You wish you could have that deep of a love with Jonathan?" Lucas said, Justin's blue eyes meeting his violet.

"We've been talking so much, him and I. He's so nice, so beautiful. We're so in tune with each other." Colton said, looking at Justin.

"He's so like you, Justin. Same beautiful face, beautiful eyes, but his own self, you know what I mean?" Colton said, Justin smiling at him, rubbing his shoulder again.

"I thought that if I watched you, if I watched what Lance did to please you. . .that maybe I could make Jonathan as happy." Colton said, Lucas leaning forward and kissing the young man's cheek.

"Jonathan is a younger version of Justin, Colt. But he's his own self as well, as you said. And you are your own self. Every moment of love is different. I'm sure you've reasoned that out." Josh said, Colton nodding.

"Yes, Josh. All of you have different intensities. Justin and Nick are very amorous, their love energetic." he said, Lance and Josh smiling at Gideon.

"Another HD. Cool." Lance smiled, Gideon softly smiling.

"His love is intense." Gideon said, looking at his nephew.

"Josh, Uncle Gideon and Lance are mirrored souls. Their love is continual, on a path of gaining emotion. Its beauty builds." Colton said, the three men smiling at each other.

"And myself, Colt?" Lucas said, Colton staring into his violet pools.

"Your love is wrapped in magic, Luke. I have not felt the radiating beauty of its intensity. Only those of your deepest heart have felt its beauty." the young man said, Josh, Justin and Lance all smiling at their young lover.

"Correct, Colt. My love is my magic, my magic is my love. That's how I first sensed you in the background. For your love and magic mirrors my own." he said, Colton smiling, looking at the three of Lucas' heart.

"The three of them are smiling with happiness, Luke. Your love must be unbelievable." he said, Josh smiling at Justin and Lance.

"It is, Colt." Justin said, the young man smiling at the singer.

"Your love will be just as unbelievable, Colton. Jonathan will be as happy as his brother." Lance said, Justin smiling at his soulmate.

The young man smiled, Lucas smiling at him.


"I'm sorry for spying on all of you. I just needed to see the beauty of love." Colton said, Gideon rising from his chair, walking up to his nephew.

Colton rose from Lucas' chair, his uncle's hand going to his shoulder.

"All our friends are correct, Colt. We're all here for you, me most of all. Just as I know Nick is. We're all here for you to talk to about sex, love and life." Gideon said, Colton wrapping his arms around his uncle, Lucas smiling up at both.

"I need Jonathan's love, Uncle Gid. I feel so lost when I see him smile." the young man said, Justin smiling at Lucas.

"My brother loves you, Colt. He's already talked to me about a lot of things as well." Justin said, Colton's blue eyes meeting his blue.

"Really, Justin? He. . .he loves me?" Colton said, Justin's hand going to his shoulder again.

"Yes, Colt. He's told you that himself." Justin said, Colton nodding.

"He's so beautiful, Justin. I love him so much." Colton said, Gideon smiling at Justin.

"And you want to go that next step?" Gideon said, Colton blushing, slowly nodding his head.

"Love goes on its own path, my friend." Lucas said, all eyes moving to him.

Colton stared at Lucas, the young man smiling at him.

"You've walked in shadows for a long time, Colton. You're now ready to walk your life's path. The path of love, destiny and magic. And love will be the center of all of it. Beginning with Jonathan's love."

The young man moved, sitting down in Lucas' lap again, the young man wrapping his arms around him again, Colton's head going to his muscular chest, everyone quietly taking in the touching scene.

"I love him, Lucas."
"And he loves you, Colt. A deep love of awakening beauty. We're all here for both of you. In our showing love, in our showing desires. But word to the wise, Justin likes to show off. The boy's a perv."

Justin laughed, others joining him, the young man blushing in Lucas' arms.

"Like my ass, Colt?" Justin winked, two arms wrapping around his waist, two lips kissing his neck.

"Who wouldn't, beautiful? And quit teasing him." Lance said, Justin smiling as his man's lips met his.

Colton smiled at both, two lips kissing his own cheek.

"Love is beautiful in all moments, Colton. The touches, kisses, intimacy and eroticism of all of it, are the pulses of a heart's reality. Your own heart will radiate to all of us. And Jonathan will feel the greatness of that beating heart."
Colton smiled, looking into Lucas' violet pools.

His blue pools went around the patio, everyone smiling at him.

"Again, I'm sorry for invading all of your privacies. I won't do it again."

Everyone smiled, rising from their seats, the young man rising and hugged by everyone.

"Remarkable! You can walk out of yourself!" Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Magic is the voicing reality of both of us." he said, Colton looking at him.

"You want to know why?" he said, Lucas looking at him.

"I know why, Colt. I'd just like to know how you did it."

Everyone looked confused, staring at the two young men staring at each other.

Colton's blue eyes moved around, staring at everyone, Lucas' violet pools on the young man.

"There were two others our young friend was spying on as well." Lucas said, Gideon's arm going around his nephew.

"Who, Luke?" Justin said, Lucas staring at the young man.

"Our young friend's magic is deeply giving. And very intelligent." Lucas said, Colton softly smiling at him.

"I felt their reluctance to go the returned path. I had to do something to unite their love. I felt that truth from your own giving magic, Luke."
"So you gave them the gift of remembered love. Of remembered beauty." Lucas said, everyone looking confused.

"It's Grayson and Gabriel, everyone. Colton's magic reunited their love." Lucas said, everyone looking surprised, staring at the young man.

Colton softly blushed, looking around at everyone.

"I felt their lost love the first moment I looked into Gabriel's eyes in that courtroom." Colton said, Gideon looking at Lucas.

"Remarkable." he softly said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Your nephew's magic is love as well, Gid. He sensed the truth of what they meant to each other. His intelligence is just as great as mine. We both realized it at the same time. I united them again with their past, Colton united them with their love." Lucas said, Colton smiling at him.

"I felt the uncertainty in their souls. The remembered past of their lost love. So I used those memories to bridge the gap between their uncertainties and their hearts." Colton said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Of course! Ingenious!" he smiled, Colton's face softly beaming.

"What do you mean, Colt?" Josh said, looking at his soulmate.

"The two men had walked a long time alone. Their hearts were filled with the remembered love of the other. If you'll remember it had been twenty years since either had seen each other. As Lucas said, he drew the two together again with his written words, the envelopes he'd given each."
Everyone nodded, remembering Gabriel's reading of his letter, Lance looking at Lucas.

"You or Grayson never divulged what you'd written him, Luke."
"That's a moment for another day, Lancy. It's up to Grayson to divulge that truth. Let's just say I gave him the push he needed to accept Gabriel's love again." Lucas said, everyone nodding.

"So Lucas' guiding words of love united them again. But both felt a nervous reaction to the upcoming moments of returned love. Both felt insecure in their looks, aging beauty and remembered love." Colton said, Lucas smiling at him.

"I felt the influx of magic zoning in on the moment, I just hadn't reasoned out what you'd done with that magic. I never even thought of that." Lucas smiled, Colton smiling at him.

"It came to me earlier that day." Colton said, his blue eyes looking at Josh.

Josh stared at him, looking confused.

"You said it earlier that day, Josh. After Lucas had regained consciousness in the hospital. You said that you knew he was going to get better. That 'his love can never change.' I then realized that the love between two people who were lost can never change, no matter how long they'd been apart. I then realized the magic I needed to use."

Colton smiled, looking at Lucas.

"The magic of remembered beauty. Truly remarkable, my young friend." he smiled, Colton beaming.

"Remembered beauty, Lucky?" Josh said, Lucas smiling at the younger man.

"Your soul touched both at the beginnings of their love. You gave them the gift of their longing souls." Lucas said, Colton nodding.

"They were standing outside Gabriel's bedroom. There was so much nervousness in their first kiss. I touched both and gave them the gift they needed. What their love needed."
"And what was that?" Lance said, everyone looking with awe at the young man.

"Remembered beauty, Lance. Both men when they backed away from their kiss looked into each other's new eyes."

"New eyes?" Andrew said, staring at the young man with quiet awe as well.

"Yes, Drew. Both men saw the other as the remembered vision of their once loved one. Their youthful remembered beauty shone back at each other. It was as if the time they'd lost had no meaning. They saw in each other the person they'd fallen in love with. Two visions of remembered beauty and love. The intensity of their forgotten desires took over then. They joined their paths with their love as it should have always been."

"That's. . .that's so beautiful." Trish said, her blue eyes showing soft tears, Andrew's arms going around her.

"That was a beautiful gift you gave them, Colt." Gideon said, his own blue eyes showing tears.

"As Lucas said, my magic is love as well. I'll always show it to those who need it. I learned from the best." Colton said, smiling at Lucas.

The young man smiled, nodding his head.

"You have surpassed the teacher, Grasshopper."

Colton laughed, everyone smiling at him with awed love.

"Remarkable! It's like we now have two Lucases!" Lance said, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"Master cooks and lovers. We dole out all the deliciousness of life." Lucas smiled, Colton blushing but smiling.

"Soon enough, my young friend. The path moves as it must. Love flows on its own agenda." Lucas said, Colton smiling more.

"Thanks, Luke." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"You still have it?" he said, Colton staring at him.

"Yes, Luke." he softly said, Gideon looking at him.

"Have what?" he asked, Colton smiling at him.

"Gramma's recipe for her famous Devil's Food Cake. I should start on that cake." the young man smiled, Lucas nodding.

"They'll be back in a few hours. I'll help you with the dinner fare." Lucas said, the young man smiling, walking into the kitchen from the patio.

Everyone watched him go, all eyes then meeting Lucas' violet.

"That young man's unbelievable! What he did for those two! What he's been doing around here!" Lance said, Justin smiling at his man.

"He's magical, that we knew. But not this magical! He's. . .he's just as magical as you, Luke!" Justin said, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"That he is, Jus." Lucas said, Gideon looking at him.

"I never knew, Luke. We--my family--never knew." he softly said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Destiny's path, Gideon. His magic was always meant to be secretive, as was my own. We are both now on our own path. My love and protection surrounds him. As does my knowledge and guidance. He'll be safe surrounded by my love. And his magic I'll always help." Lucas said, Josh smiling at him.

"I guess you have gained a son, Lucky. We all see your deep love for him. And he'll see all our love for him." Josh said, leaning down and kissing his man's lips.

Lucas smiled, looking into his man's blue eyes, seeing the love shining there.

"You and Justin have to just tone it down. The boy will be beside himself with desire." Lucas smiled, Justin laughing.

"Oh, I'm going to so tease him!" he said, Lance kissing his cheek.

"He's on a hormone rollercoaster ride, babe. Tone down on the mirthfulness. He needs his big brothers. As I'm sure Jonathan will as well." Lance said, Justin nodding.

"Yes, my love. We'll all be here for both of them." he said, Lance kissing his lips.

"You knew he was walking around, Luke?" Trish said, Lucas nodding.

"I can see his soul in the shadows of life, Trishy. He can't hide from my magic. Nothing or no one can." he said, the young man looking towards the door of the house.

Lance stared at the young man, seeing a look of thoughtfulness cross his face.

The look evaporated, his smile meeting everyone's staring faces.

"Let's relax around the pool, everyone. We'll have a late lunch. And then on to the next surprise." he smiled, Josh staring at him.

"The next surprise?" he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"It's going to be a magical day." he smiled, Lucas moving his wheelchair towards the pool, gliding down the newly installed ramp beside the steps.

Everyone looked at Josh, the man shrugging his shoulders, the man walking towards the pool.

Justin and Lance exchanged glances, following Josh.


A couple of hours later, Lucas smiled at Colton, the young man setting down a large bowl of Caesar Salad on the patio table.

Lunch was almost ready, the young man having been well organized.

He'd worked in the kitchen and on the barbecue in the corner of the patio, aromas of richness filling the air.

Lucas lay on the patio, Josh and he lying on a chaise lounge, their arms wrapped around each other.

Justin, Lance, Andrew and Trish were all relaxing around the pool sunning, having swum for the last couple of hours.

Colton walked over to the barbecue, grabbing a platter off the table and beginning to fill it with skewers of barbecued meat.

"Smells heavenly, Colton. You know the way to our hearts is through our stomachs." Josh said, Lucas kissing his neck, his hands roaming across Josh's smooth chest, the man wearing only swimming trunks.

Colton smiled, Lucas smiling at his Josh.

"I can only smell you, my love. I'm up for dessert before lunch." Lucas said, one of his hands kneading Josh's left butt cheek, his tongue licking his neck.

Colton laughed, Josh blushing.

"Babe, feed me first. Then dessert." he said, Lucas sighing, nuzzling against Josh's warm body.

Colton smiled, walking the meat-filled platter back to the patio table.

"Lunch is ready, guys!" Colton yelled across the patio, everyone waving at him.

Justin and Lance rose from their seats, Colton's blue eyes taking in their bronzed, sculpted bodies.

He smiled, the four at the pool walking towards the patio.

Josh smiled, rising from the lounge, his soulmate in his arms, Lucas kissing his lips as Josh deposited him into his wheelchair.

The other four walked up onto the patio, taking their seats around their table, all the male smooth chests covering with t-shirts and athletic tops.

Lucas smiled at Colton, the young man smiling back.

"Tasty treats all around, Colt. Eye candy for the soul." Lucas smiled, Colton smiling more.

"And non-fattening." he said, he and Lucas laughing.

Everyone smiled at the two, seeing both in a good mood.

A voice filled the air, everyone looking towards the house.

"Where is everyone?" a male voice yelled, Lucas yelling back.

"On the patio, Welshman! Follow your nose!" Lucas yelled, Colton and his eyes meeting.

"On to the growing love." Lucas smiled, Josh looking at him.

Harry and Alain both walked out of the house, smiling at everyone.

Finn and Skyler followed, Finn's arm wrapped around her waist, his face showing a large smile, its youthful beauty more intoxicating.

Skyler's face showed a soft look of wonder, Finn's arms holding her.

"Just in time, Finny. The meat's warm and tasty." Lucas said, the Welshman smiling at his friend.

"Just how he likes it." Alain smiled, he and Harry sitting down at the table.

Lucas chuckled, Finn smiling at him, helping Skyler into her chair, the man kissing her cheek as he sat down beside her.

Harry and Alain traded looks, both looking at the Welsh couple, Finn's arm around Skyler's chair.

"Eat it while it's hot, guys. There are more skewers ready on the barbecue." Colton said, sitting down beside Lucas.

Gideon had left just before lunch, the man spending the day with Nick.

He'd hugged his nephew goodbye, the two holding a closer bond now.

He'd talked with the young man in the kitchen while Colton had been preparing lunch, Lucas seeing their family love shining bright.

Colton's special magical self only created a stronger bond between him and Gideon, Lucas sensing to himself why.

"How went the tests, Sky?" Trish asked, Skyler looking at Finn, the man kissing her cheek, filling his plate with steak kabobs.

"Everything looks good. I'm healthy, as is the baby." she said, Finn smiling at her with love, his face filled with happiness.

Everyone looked at each other, the two seemingly radiating happiness.

They quietly ate lunch, glances exchanged, Lucas talking with everyone around the table, Finn's blue eyes meeting his often.

Colton received lots of praise, the young man beaming at everyone liking his steak kabobs, salads and fixings.

Finn sighed, the young man having devoured six of the meaty skewers.

"The man's a meat lover's wet dream." Andrew said, Lucas laughing loudly, Alain joining him.

Andrew blushed when Finn looked at him, the Welshman smiling widely.

"Back off on the talk of meat, Drew, around these gay boys. You know they want us." Finn smiled, Alain winking at him.

"You just haven't tried the right meat, Welsh boy toy." he smiled, Harry kissing his man's cheek.

"Jamaican fare is damn delicious." he said, Alain smiling his love at his soulmate.

"As is Welsh beauty." Skyler said, kissing Finn's cheek, the young woman smiling at him, her face showing her love.

Trish had been watching both quietly through lunch, the young woman sensing something was bothering Skyler behind her smile.

"Everything okay, sweetie?" she said, the two old friends' eyes meeting.

Finn looked at his love, kissing her cheek as she looked at him.

"We have some news, everyone." he said, everyone hearing the happiness in his voice, his arm pulling his soulmate closer.

"Life gives us all surprises, Finnegan and Skyler. The greater surprise behind it is the love surrounding you both. We will all double our love for all of you."

All eyes turned to Lucas, the young man leaning back in his chair, his hands folded in his lap, his violet pools staring at the couple.

"You. . .you know, don't you?" Skyler said, staring at her old friend.

Finn was staring at his friend as well, the young man smiling at him.

"You both walk on the same path of life, my friends. Finn shows his happiness in his eyes, you show your wondrous love in yours, Sky."

"How long. . .?" Finn stuttered, Lucas smiling at him.

"From the day I awoke in the hospital. I now see what the magic's message was." Lucas said, Josh staring at him.

"The magic's message, Lucky?" he said, Lucas nodding.

The young man sighed, looking out towards the pool, his violet pools showing a soft glassy wetness.

"The magic has given me my reward, my friends. For sacrifices given and for the path's righting." he said, staring at his old friends, Skyler and Finn staring at him.

"Reward for what, Lucas?" Skyler said, Lucas softly smiling at her.

"Bring out our surprise, Colt." he said, the young man smiling at him, nodding and rising from his seat, walking into the kitchen.

"Our magic flows through our  thoughts." He said, looking towards the kitchen, his violet eyes returning to everyone staring at him.

"As you all remember I had that vision of Jacob's death in the pool here. I also saw my standing trial for that murder. I also saw how the trial would end. I chose to step in against fate. I changed the path. Twice."

"Twice, my love?" Josh said, Lucas nodding.

"You saved my life, Lucas. That was the first change." Finn said, his eyes showing emotion.

"I would always risk everything for you, Finnegan." Lucas said, Skyler and Finn both tearing.

"The second change was my stopping Harris' madness."
"And your saving the judge." Justin said, Lucas looking at him.

"He wasn't the only one I saved that day." Lucas said, his eyes looking at Finn again.

"Me? Again?" the Welshman softly said, Lucas nodding.

"The original path was that Harris would have shot at least three people in the courtroom that day:  Judge Navarro, his own brother Levi and you who were standing behind Levi, Finnegan. Your death would have been accidental, caught in the crossfire. I couldn't allow any of them to perish. In the end I couldn't save Levi." Lucas said, Josh's arm going around his man.

"You saved everyone, Lucas. You're so amazing!"

"My risking my own self instead of Judge Navarro altered the path. He was saved, giving Levi time to shoot his brother, thus stopping his own death and yours, Finn. The risk was worth all of it. I just never expected the magic's reward." Lucas said, Finn rising from his chair, kneeling beside his friend.

"I love you so much! I love your love and magic, Luke! Thank you for keeping me safe, for giving me a change to love my children!" Finn said, his face covered in tears.

"Therein lies the magic's reward, Finnegan and Skyler, my friends of youthful love." Lucas said, smiling at his old friend, Trish smiling at him as well.

Colton walked out of the kitchen, his arms filled with a large cake.

Finn rose to his feet, staring at the young man, Skyler rising from her seat.

The young man smiled at the couple, Lance and Justin clearing a spot on the patio table, Colton smiling and setting the cake down on the table.

Everyone rose staring at the decorated cake, words of love written across it.


                        Congratulations Finn and Skyler               

                            Our New Foursome of Love

                                   Walk into Love

                              Walk into Family Life


Everyone stared at the couple with surprise, Finn's arms going around Skyler.

"We're having twins, everyone!" he smiled, everyone smiling widely.

Trish screamed, jumping out of her seat, her arms wrapping around Skyler.

"Two babies?! You're so blessed!" she cried, Lucas smiling up at his sister, Josh's hand going in his.

"You're amazing my love. Your love is amazing." he said, Lucas smiling at his Josh.

"My magic's even more amazing." he smiled, Finn and Skyler both moving, the young man suddenly wrapped in their love.

Colton smiled, staring at the young man in the wheelchair.


End of Chapter 135


And so we end with a new surprise.

Finn and Skyler are having twins!

Lucas' magical changing of Finn's life path twice has yielded two creations of love.


Colton's magic is shown more, the young man as magical as Lucas.

And Lucas has been aware of that fact from the start.

What is the significance of their duality of magic?

Colton has shown his own path of love, guiding Grayson and Gabriel to their remembered love.

And Colton himself is seeking love as well.


Onward we go, the path continuing.

Up next, dinner with Gio.

And then an All Hallows Eve party with a few surprises.



Hugs, Angel.
