Lucas sat on the edge of the stage, the sound around him thunderous.
His three bandmates stood at his sides, the crowd before them showing their adulation.
Orion stood before the world, returned to their singing happiness.
It was the third of November, their tour again on the road.
Lucas' face showed an awed smile, his bandmates smiling at him, Trish leaning down and kissing his cheek.
"They love us, Luke. They love Orion's message. Your message of love." she smiled, Lucas smiling up at her.
His violet pools looked out at all the smiling faces, the stadium filled with shouting fans.
When they'd opened the show twenty minutes ago, the crowd had been on their feet, applause filling the large Houston Toyota Center.
The first opening song had ended, the band now standing in silence for ten minutes listening to the loud ovation, Lucas' name chanted through all of it.
Lucas smiled, seated at the stage's edge in his wheelchair, his friends around him, his head mike resonating his calm voice over their loudness.
"Thank you all, my friends. Orion sings again!" he said, the crowd's screaming intensifying.
Finn was raising his hands, trying to calm them.
The din gradually calmed, everyone staring at the handsome Welshman.
"Thank you for that moving welcome, Houston!" he said into his head mike, the crowd cheering.
Skyler and Trish smiled, their hands on Lucas' shoulder.
Lucas' violet pools were staring up at Finn, the young man smiling down at his friend.
"We all love you, Lucas. Welcome back into the center of our musical heart." Finn said, everyone in the stadium hearing his moving words.
Lucas smiled up at Finn, seeing his friend's showing love.
Finn turned to the audience, smiling out at everyone.
"Our Lucas is back with us, everyone. Nothing can keep this man's voice down, or his friendship. His voice needs to be heard. Our voices need to be heard. For we are Orion. The voice of Lucas' love!" he said, the crowd screaming again, Lucas' violet pools tearing up.
Finn smiled at his friend again, Skyler and Trish moving Lucas' wheelchair to the center of the stage, Finn following them, a single white spotlight on a white grand piano.
Lucas smiled, seeing where his friends were guiding him, the crowd's joined eyes following all four.
The two young women wheeled Lucas up to the piano, its bench gone, Lucas smiling at the words written across the piano's white facing above its ivory keys.
Lucas' Keys--The Tempo of Love
"Lead us on to the magic of your musical love, Luke. Everyone wants you to return to their hearts." Finn said, patting his friend's shoulder.
Finn moved, he and his two female friends encircling the piano, the spotlight on Lucas, the crowd's screaming again ascending.
Lucas smiled, seeing his three friends' smiling faces, the young man hearing the adulation of the crowd surrounding them.
"Thank you, my friends. I've missed the joining of our musical heart. And I've missed singing to all of you." Lucas said, looking out into the crowd, seeing all of them on their feet, their smiles large and filled with anticipation.
Lucas began to hit the piano keys, the stage filling with soft piano music, his three friends smiling at him.
"It's only fitting that we begin this night of musical love with a piece of my heart." he smiled, the crowd suddenly quieting, the song known to all of them.
all have a claim to a piece of my heart. These words were written when my soul
was at its lowest. Tonight it's at its highest. Love and friendship can uplift
any soul. Listen to the words to give your own souls happiness."
Lucas' rich voice filled the stadium, everyone lost in its strong resonating tone and rich melody.
And the words filled all of their hearts with hope, love and the meaning of life.
Josh smiled, standing in the darkness of the stage's back area, staring at his man moving around the stage, his wheelchair at times seemingly flying along.
"He's right on the mark, Joshy." Justin said, his arm around the man's waist, Lance's arm around him as well, the three in the privacy of the giving darkness.
"He's never sounded so good." Lance said, kissing Josh's cheek.
Josh smiled, feeling their love.
The last few days had been a rich wonderful time for them as well.
As well as nights of unbelievable passion.
The man seated out on that stage had been the center of all of it.
The night of the pool party had been a moving experience for Lance as well as for Justin again.
Lucas had claimed both into his soul, his heart and his bed.
Lance had never experienced such a deeply moving moment.
He'd wept in Justin's arms after, his love anchored in Lance's soul as well.
Night of Pool Party
"I'm sorry, Lance. I didn't mean to overcome you." Lucas had softly said, kissing his cheek, the man in the center of Justin's, Josh's and Lucas' love.
"Oh, Lucas! Your. . .your passion! It was like. . .like a flood of your love!" Lance had softly said, Justin kissing his lips.
Lucas had spent that last hour showing Lance all his love, the man moved beyond his soul.
Lucas' tender passion, giving touch and moving eroticism had left Lance speechless.
Justin had watched through all of it, the man moved by Lucas' showing love to Lance.
And when Lucas had coupled with Lance, Justin had seen a deep glow of love shining in Lance's green pools.
He knew his heart had totally healed because of the joining of Lucas' love with his.
He'd felt the same glow the night before when he'd been blessed with all of Lucas' love.
Justin felt a set of lips on his neck, a set of hands moving across his naked chest.
"I need you, Jus. I need to feel your forgotten love. I need all of you." Josh had whispered into his ear, Justin turning his head, two lips meeting his.
Justin felt Josh moving him away from the other two making love beside him, Justin's body now on top of Josh's smooth naked beauty.
Their eyes had opened together, Justin staring into Josh's blue pools of love.
"I love you, Justin. Return to my love."
Justin's lips moved, licking across Josh's smooth chest, attaching to his right nipple, the nipple Justin knew was Josh's center of desire, the man getting the familiar moaning response from Josh.
Justin felt Josh's legs wrapping around his back, their centers joined together.
His eyes raised, looking to his left, seeing two green pools of lost passion.
Lance was on top of Lucas, Lucas' face buried in Lance's armpit, his shaft buried deep with Lance's center.
Lance was staring at Justin, Justin seeing the love flowing from his green pools.
"I love you, Jus. Oh God, Lucas! I love you! Don't stop!"
Justin smiled, the man feeling his body move upwards, his eyes returning to Josh's blue pools.
"We all love you, Jus. Come back to my love." Josh said, Justin gasping as he felt his body move downward, Josh having guided his shaft into Justin's center, the man moaning deeply.
His head moved downwards, his lips meeting Josh's, the two beginning a rhythm of rekindled passion.
Beside the two men lost in remembered love, two others were lost in their own passion.
Lucas' lips had moved from Lance's armpit, now attached to his right nipple, Lance gasping.
He rose and fell on Lucas' hard shaft, the man feeling Lucas' hand wrap around his monster.
Lucas raised his head, pulling Lance's down to his, the two kissing deeply, both lost in the love flowing through them.
In the middle of the passion, Lance felt his hand go into Justin's, the two connecting within their souls.
And their new soulmates' love was flowing through them as well.
All four felt their orgasms join together, one flood of love cresting.
The four had fallen asleep, their soulmates in their arms, the other two beside them.
Justin smiled, standing in the backstage darkness, Josh in the middle of his love and Lance's.
Justin remembered that night as well.
How all four created a special bond of love.
Justin gave into Lucas' love again that night as well, after Lance.
And that night it was even more moving than the night before.
He smiled, feeling Josh's returned love and passion in his soul, as well as Lucas' unbelievable new love, and Lance's familiar unchanged love.
He'd been in the center of some amazing nights this week.
He and Lance had tasted all of their new partners of love all week.
Josh had tasted all of Lance's love, Josh's love identical to Justin's in Lance's soul.
But Lucas seemed so much more.
He was so intense, his love so overwhelming.
Both men had voiced that truth to Josh on Friday while Lucas was doing his exercises with Cindy, the man nodding with love.
"His love is all of him, my loves. He gives all to have all." Josh said, Justin smiling at him.
"He hasn't given all, Josh. Lance and I haven't shown him all of our love." he said, Lance smiling at Josh as well.
The man smiled at both, seeing their deep love for Lucas, and the desire behind their eyes of love.
"I know you both want to show him all of your love, and I know he wants that love deeply. He needs all of your love. I have already asked him that this morning while I bathed him."
The two men nodded, the three snuggled together in the living room on a couch alone.
"He loves both of you, deeply. He easily shows you all of his love to you, for he knows you both need it just as greatly as I do." Josh said, both smiling at him.
"We do, Josh. His love is a part of us now. In all ways. As is yours, our old man of lust." Lance said, Josh smiling at him.
"Lucas told me another truth, my friends. He never said I couldn't tell you, but I feel I should."
Justin's lips kissed his cheek.
"We all love each other, Josh. There are no secrets between us." he said, Lance kissing his other cheek as well.
doesn't feel whole, guys. His injury he feels doesn't make him the full man you
both need. He knows my love is total, that I love him regardless of his
paralysed legs. But he feels in his heart that for the two of you to totally
love him, he has to be his true self."
"That's ridiculous, Josh. We both love him totally. He's beyond loving, beyond beautiful, and our love is his regardless of his useless legs." Justin said, Josh hearing the love in his words.
know that, Jus. Lance knows it as well. Lucas, in his heart, knows it also. His
mind just needs to reason itself out. Give him time. When he feels he truly
needs your love he'll be the first to ask you for its completeness."
Both men smiled, nodding.
"We understand, Joshy. We love Lucas enough to let him tell us when he needs our complete love. All we know is that it will be beyond amazing." Lance smiled, Josh smiling at him.
"And what am I?" he smiled, Justin grinning, Lance leaning in and kissing Josh on the lips, Josh feeling his flirtatious love.
Lance pulled back, smiling at him.
"You're our Italian stallion. And you're damn fine!" Lance grinned.
"Lucas should be another half hour. I need me a monster snack." Josh grinned.
The three smiled, standing up.
"And I'm going to have a snack of Chasez salami." Justin grinned, Lance kissing his cheek.
"Let's make it a triangle of snacks. I need some Timbersnake. As well as a visit to the Chasez Hills." he said, his hands moving, kneading Justin's jean-covered center and Josh's firm cargo short-covered fine butt.
All three smiled, hustling towards the foyer and the upstairs steps.
The band suddenly was shrouded in darkness, Lucas feeling himself become airborne, two strong arms lifting him out of his wheelchair's seat.
"God damn, Finny! Put me down! I thought I had a reprieve from your macho shenanigans!" Lucas screamed, feeling his body being flung over Finn's shoulder, a hand slapping his leather pant-covered ass.
"Tradition, Wheels! You slap our fans in the face with your music, I slap your fine ass!" he laughed, Lucas smiling, regardless of his predicament.
why the fingers, Finny? That opening's loose enough."
Skyler and Trish burst into laughter, the backup band laughing behind them.
Finn blushed in the darkness, feeling around and finding Lucas' wheelchair again, gently returning Lucas to it.
those three must be smaller than my fingers. Still felt tight to me."
Lucas burst out in laughter, everyone smiling at his happiness.
"Listen, guys." Dean Remington, the drummer said, everyone quieting down.
They all heard the thunderous applause, the screaming continuing.
"They won't leave, even after four encores." Trish said, looking amazed, the darkness suddenly lessening, the backstage lights slowly coming to life, its area bathed in semidarkness.
because they love you."
All four turned, staring into Justin's blue eyes, the man smiling at all four, Lance and Josh smiling behind them.
Andrew and Colton walked out of the darkness, Trish smiling at her man, his arms going around her.
"Spot on, babe." he said, kissing her lips, everyone smiling at the couple.
Colton high-fived all the bandmates as he continued to click his camera, Lucas smiling at him.
Lucas' eyes moved, staring into two blue pools.
"Amazing, my love." Josh smiled, Lance and Justin smiling as well.
"Totally amazing, Luke." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.
Josh sat down in Lucas' lap, their lips meeting.
"They're at it again." Finn grinned, the man feeling a hand slap his ass, Skyler right in front of him.
"Sorry, dear. They're in love. Know the feeling." he smiled, feeling a hand knead his left butt cheek.
Skyler smiled, the two kissing, then breaking apart.
"Nice save, sweetie. But that's not me rubbing you wild. Although I'm feeling the forward benefits." she smiled, snuggled against her man.
Finn's eyes widened, feeling the hand still on his ass.
"Wild indeed. And I'm bigger than any fingers." Lance smiled, Josh and Justin laughing, everyone joining them, Lance patting Finn's leather covered ass.
Finn blushed, Lance kissing his cheek.
"Is that a loose bolt in your pocket or have I stoked the Delaney fires?" Lance grinned, Lucas laughing.
Finn blushed more, his eyes meeting two other sets of eyes, Alain and Harry walking out of the darkness.
"Hands off, Lance! That fine ass is mine and Sky's." Alain grinned, Skyler laughing.
"It's all yours, Alain. You can deal with the hair!" she smiled, Finn blushing more, Skyler kissing her man's lips.
"My furry little Frankie. You're all mine. Hands off the goods, guys." she smiled, Finn smiling at her.
"I think your fans still want to see you." Justin smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"Let's take a final bow, guys." Lucas said, Josh smiling and beginning to rise out of Lucas' wheelchair, the young man pulling him back into his lap.
"Hang on for the open love, my love." Lucas smiled, Lucas beginning to head for the stage, Finn smiling, he and his bandmates following the two.
Josh's eyes widened in surprise, the man still seated in Lucas' lap, their friends smiling behind them.
"This should be good." Lance smiled, Justin's hand going into his in the semidarkness.
Colton and Andrew both smiled, watching the band head back onstage, Josh carried out there by Lucas.
"Their open love showing. Lucky fans." Colton smiled, Lance smiling at him.
The crowd was screaming and applauding, their screaming intensifying when they saw who was seated in the wheelchair with Lucas.
Lucas smiled, wheeling to the center of the stage, his bandmates surrounding him.
The noise was almost deafening, Orion smiling out at their friends.
Josh blushed, seeing everyone smiling at him.
The din gradually calmed when Lucas waved his hands in calming love.
"Look what I snared, everyone. The man of my heart." Lucas said, his mike still on.
The crowd screamed again, Josh slowly waving at everyone.
People began to chant his name and Lucas', the younger man smiling, his arm going around Josh's back.
"Our love is free, my love. Let's wow them." Lucas said, the young man smiling at his man, Josh's soft nervousness dissipating.
Finn smiled, handing Josh a wireless microphone that he'd picked up off a speaker on the walk out.
Josh smiled at him, rising from Lucas' lap, standing beside his chair, the crowd still chanting, his hands moving down, the din lessening.
"How did you all enjoy the show, everyone? Isn't Orion amazing?" he said, smiling out at the crowd, the room filled with screams and applause.
Lucas and his bandmates smiled, hearing their fans' adulation.
"I've been at all their shows and it continues to amaze even me. Their music is unbelievable. Am I right?" he smiled, the crowd thunderous again.
The crowd calmed down, Josh smiling at Lucas, his hand going in his.
"The light of their music is my man's soul. His love shines in every song. I'm so proud of him." Josh said, the crowd screaming again.
Lucas smiled, seeing the calm love in Josh's blue pools.
The man leaned down, their lips meeting.
The arena suddenly filled with thunderous applause and screaming.
"Get a room guys!" Finn screamed, the crowd screaming at the two men.
Josh broke the kiss, Lucas smiling up at him.
"Open love, babe. Our fans feel our love. I sing it in every note." he said, the arena hearing him, the screaming continuing.
Lucas smiled at his bandmates, Josh smiling at them as well.
"Thank you all, Houston! We love you!" the four said together, the arena thunderous again, Josh smiling and walking back into the darkness with his man beside him, their friends following.
Two Weeks Later
Josh shut off the alarm, Lucas gliding past him, heading for the living room.
Justin smiled at his friend, he and Lance walking into Josh's home, both depositing bags on the foyer's floor.
Finn, Trish, Skyler and Alain and Harry walked into the house as well, dropping their bags also.
"Home sweet home." Finn smiled, Josh laughing.
"What's it going to take for me to get rid of you freeloaders?" he smiled, Finn smiling back.
"Hey, you once told us to make ourselves at home. We're home."
Josh smiled, his arm going around the Welshman.
Finn smiled, walking into the living room, everyone following.
"The place is spotless. Colton mustn't have stayed after all." Finn said, jumping onto a couch, Skyler sitting down beside him.
Lucas smiled at the Welshman, the young man on the phone, checking for messages.
Josh smiled at him, he and Justin and Lance sitting down on another brown leather couch.
They were back in Los Angeles, the tour of the southern states having ended, the time now late November.
Lucas hung up the phone, hitting the erase button on the answering machine.
"Colton left a message. He, Nick, Gideon and Gio have gone up the coast for some surfing. They'll be back tomorrow." Lucas smiled, looking at his man.
Colton had left the tour a few days earlier, Gideon wanting him to come back to L.A.
"So we're youth-free till Wednesday." Finn smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"You still have me, Finny. I'm only a couple of years older than Colt." he smiled, Finn smiling at him.
"Yeah, but your old man's aged you." he laughed, Josh raising a finger, Finn laughing more.
Lucas smiled at his man, blowing him a kiss.
"What can I say? We're both aging to perfection." he smiled, Josh beaming.
Everyone laughed, Alain and Harry snuggled in a wing chair.
"When's Andrew back, Trishy?" Skyler asked, Trish smiling at her.
Andrew had left a week earlier, his uncle Solomon needing him in England for some contract negotiations.
"Tomorrow morning. He's coming back from England with our parents." she smiled, everyone smiling.
"A family holiday. Looking forward to it." Josh smiled, Lucas wheeling over to him, the man lifting himself onto the couch beside Josh, the two snuggling together, Justin smiling at both.
"Thanksgiving. Nice concept. We don't have that in Wales or England." Finn smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"I think they're both thankful for that. You're brutal when it comes to big meals. And for celebrating. The pubs wouldn't stand a chance." Lucas said, Skyler laughing, Finn smiling at her.
"I like celebrating, Wheels."
Lucas smiled, sensing Finn's happiness at calling him that.
"I need to start walking. That name's sticking." he smiled, Finn smiling at him.
Lucas saw the compassion in Finn's eyes, the young man smiling at him.
"No movement yet, Luke?" Alain asked, the young man smiling at him.
"Cindy's a good therapist, but she's not a miracle worker. I think that will come down to me." he said, Josh smiling at him.
"You're amazing, my Lucas. Your magic will help, I know it."
Lucas smiled, kissing his cheek.
"Even my magic's not that powerful, my love. That comes down to my choice." he said, Justin and Lance staring at him.
"Your choice, Luke?" Lance said, Lucas looking at him.
"Pepperoni or sausage. How about pizza for supper guys?" he smiled, everyone smiling at him.
"Pepperoni, Luke. You'll get your sausage later." Finn laughed, Justin smiling at him.
"Better a salami than a sausage link." he smiled, Alain bursting into laughter.
Harry smiled, patting his man's ass, Alain rising from his seat, the two smiling at Lucas.
"We'll hit the pizzeria, Luke. Four pies enough?"
"Make it six, Har. Finn's already drooling about Thursday's feast." Lucas smiled, Finn laughing.
"I'm going to eat for four days. Sweatpants for me!" he grinned, Skyler rolling her eyes.
Finn laughed, kissing her cheek.
Harry and Alain laughed, both walking back out of the living room towards the foyer.
parents called as well, babe. Everyone's flying in on Wednesday. The house will
be filled, my love."
"Yep, both sides of the love. Mom and Dad arrive tomorrow morning." Josh smiled, Justin smiling at him.
"My parents and bros are coming in tonight."
"Mine as well." Lance smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"Thanks for inviting them all, Luke. I'm really surprised my Mom and my Dad agreed to both come." Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.
"A person needs family around them at Thanksgiving, Jus. My first official Thanksgiving." Lucas said, Josh smiling and kissing his cheek.
"And I'm going to make it a day you'll remember." he said, kissing Lucas on the lips.
Lucas smiled, staring into Josh's blue pools.
"Sweet! Colton and Gideon are doing the cooking. But I get to stuff something at least!"
Finn laughed, Josh blushing, everyone laughing around him.
"Oh, Luke!" he softly said, Lucas smiling at him.
Lucas kissed Josh's lips again, the young man snuggling against him.
Justin was snuggled against Lance's chest, the man's eyes closed.
Lance's green eyes were staring at Lucas' contented face, his thoughts his own.
The Next Day
Josh smiled, opening the door.
His muscular body was instantly wrapped in two warm arms of love.
"Welcome to my home again, Mom." he smiled, Savannah kissing his cheek.
"Hello, Josh. Where's that son of mine?" she smiled, Tristan hugging Josh as well, the man smiling at their welcoming embraces.
They were replaced by Josh's parents, both hugging their son tightly.
"He's out on the patio deck. You made good time, Alain." he smiled, Alain smiling at him in the doorway, the man surrounded by people.
"Two vans, half the wait." Harry smiled, everyone walking into the home, Josh hugged by everyone.
Lucas' grandparents hugged him, as did Vivian and Henderson, as well as Momma Mavis and Sean, and Skyler parents, Lorraine and Ian.
Finn and Trish smiled, having gone with Alain and Harry to pick up everyone.
Andrew's arms were wrapped around Trish, everyone seeing their rekindled love.
"You look great, Joshua." Tristan said, Josh smiling at him.
"Your son's love makes me feel so alive." he smiled, everyone smiling at him.
"Congratulations, Josh. Welcome to the world of open love." Savannah smiled, Josh smiling at her.
"I love him so much, Mom." he said, Karen smiling at her son.
"We all know that, Josh. How's he doing, really?" she said, Josh seeing his mother's love and concern in her eyes.
fine, Mom. He's singing again, that always makes him happy. He's handling
everything else well. Nothing can stop his love from shining."
Everyone smiled, a new voice entering the conversation.
"My love will never stop shining when I have so much going into my own soul."
Savannah smiled, moving across the hallway, her arms going around her son.
"Oh, Lucas! You. . .you look so happy." she said, hugging him close, everyone seeing the tears in his violet pools.
"I am happy, Mom. My heart's filled with your love, all your love." he smiled, everyone smiling at him.
He sat in his wheelchair, the young man wearing a black silk shirt and khaki-colored shorts.
"Welcome to Los Angeles, everyone. And welcome to our home of open love." he smiled, everyone moving, Lucas smiling as all his extended family hugged and kissed him.
Emerson was the last to hug him, Lucas patting his grandfather's back.
"Happy Thanksgiving, Grandfather." he said, Emerson smiling at him.
"Your love makes it the greatest of holidays, my grandson." he said, Lucas smiling at him.
"You haven't seen anything yet, Grandfather. The Carlisle men are cooking up a storm for tomorrow and for today. Make yourselves at home, everyone. The happiness begins today." he smiled, wheeling his chair around, Josh smiling, following him, his mother's arms around him, everyone following.
They all walked out onto the patio, having stopped in the kitchen first, Gideon and Colton hugged by everyone, Nick and Jonathan hugged as well.
The four men were busy cooking, the kitchen filled with delicious aromas.
"Something smells damn near heavenly." Roy smiled, Karen slapping his shoulder.
"He wouldn't eat on the plane. I think he's plotting." she said, Roy grinning.
"A empty stomach holds more." he said, everyone laughing.
"Then be prepared for my own mother's secret recipes, Roy." Gideon smiled, Colton smiling at him.
"We'll eat dinner in an hour or so, Dad." Lucas smiled, Roy smiling at him.
Colton tapped the older man's shoulder, Roy looking at him as he leaned in and whispered to him.
"Come back into the kitchen whenever you need a taste, Roy. We'll keep it on the down low."
Roy laughed, patting the young man's shoulder.
"What are you two going on about?" Karen smiled, Roy smiling at his wife.
"Nothing, dear. Just sports talk."
Karen rolled her eyes, Lucas smiling and guiding her out onto the patio.
"Lynn and Paul! Lisa and Randall!" she said, Justin's parents smiling, rising from the table they were sitting at, all hugging her and Roy.
They'd all arrived earlier, with Justin and Lance, and Lance's parents.
Lucas smiled, families joining.
The backyard was filled with people; the patio, pool and yard filled with conversation, laughter and splashing happiness.
Justin smiled at Lucas, the young man seated at a patio table with Justin's parents and Josh's parents, Josh and Lance at the pool, chatting with other people.
Justin walked over to the patio table, having just come out of the house, Stevie at his side carrying lemonade.
Justin sat down beside Lucas, his younger brother heading towards the pool, Lucas smiling at Justin.
"How are the cooks doing?" he smiled, Justin smiling at him.
"I think our meal's going to be served with love, if the grope fest continues."
Lucas laughed, Randall smiling at him.
"You can see Gideon and Nick's love for each other." he said, Lucas smiling at him.
"It's real love, Randall." he said, Randall nodding.
"Yes it is, Lucas. As is my son's love." he smiled, Justin smiling at him, Lisa smiling at her husband.
love Lance, Dad."
"We know that, Justin. But I believe your father wasn't talking about you." Lynn smiled, Lisa smiling at her.
Justin looked surprised, Randall smiling at his eldest son.
"Jonathan gives his love away easily, son. It always showed in his eyes. You only have to see where they look to." he said, Lucas smiling at him.
"And here we thought Justin was naive because of his blond hair. His father's very intelligent."
Randall laughed, patting Lucas' shoulder.
He smiled, looking at his son, Justin staring at him with guarded concern.
"You can relax, Justin. Lisa and I both had a long talk with Jonathan a couple of weeks ago. He opened up about his life. He told us he was gay, Justin." Randall said, Lisa smiling at her husband, Justin looking surprised.
"And you weren't shocked by that?" Lucas said, the man smiling at him.
"It was a surprise, yes. No more surprising than Justin's declaration to us a few months ago. But someone told me then that life gives us surprises. But we have to remember the love flowing around us. Family is nothing without love. I've always loved all my sons. I will never judge them by their lifestyles. I will only ever love them." Randall said,
"Speaking of sons, does Stevie know any of this?" Justin said.
"We've all spoken to him about him. He says it doesn't change anything in his heart towards his big brothers." Randall said.
Justin was in tears, the man rising from his seat, walking around to his father, his arms going around his neck.
"Love you, Dad. Glad to hear it." he said, Randall smiling, patting his back.
"Love you back, Justin." he said, Justin breaking their embrace, smiling at his father.
"Jon has more courage than me. He's taking life by the horns." Justin smiled, Randall smiling at him.
all have a talk later. I'd like to get to know Colton. Jonathan seems smitten
Lucas smiled, nodding his head.
"That they both are. Young love finds its own path." he said, everyone smiling at him.
"Why do I sense you had some doing in that path?" Lynn smiled, her husband Paul smiling at her.
Lucas smiled, staring at her.
"I have doings in all paths of love. From this world and others." he smiled, everyone smiling at him.
Lynn smiled, knowing the truth in Lucas' words.
Colton's head popped out of the patio door, smiling at Josh, who just walked up onto the patio.
"Everything's almost ready." he said, Josh smiling at him.
"We'll help set up the patio tables, Josh." Harry said, he and Alain--as well as Lance and Gio--walking up onto the patio.
"Thanks, guys. We'll eat in about fifteen minutes." he said, everyone rising from their seats, heading out to the pool and yard, taking their drinks with them.
Lucas smiled at his man, Josh leaning down and kissing his lips.
"You mingle, babe. I'll organize all this." he said, Lucas smiled, licking his man's lips.
"Alright, my love." he said, turning his wheelchair, gliding down the ramp towards the pool.
Justin and Lance both smiled, Josh seeing their unending love.
The three walked into the house, dinner organizing.
Lucas smiled, looking around at all the circular tables filling the patio, each filled with families of love.
Everyone had changed, dinner ready, a large family joining in the dying sunshine of a warm California evening.
Lucas wheeled over to the patio doors, Josh following him, the two smiling around at everyone.
"Good evening, everyone. Welcome to the next few days of Thanksgiving love. I'll let my man voice his love momentarily. It will move us all as usual. I only want to welcome all of you to Lucas' and my home. Treat it as your own. You will have your fill of love, happiness, good food, warm company and perhaps some magical love. We both love you all."
clapped, Josh smiling around at everyone.
"Well said, my love." Lucas smiled, his eyes scanning Josh's attire.
The man wore a white silk shirt, black dress pants accentuating his toned legs and butt.
"Thank you, my love. I think we should all hear from the boss." he smiled, Lucas smiling up at him.
"Keep it short, Lukey! We're famished!" Finn yelled, his mother slapping his shoulder, Finn blushing, Sean chuckling, the Delaney and Templeton families seated together.
Lucas laughed, smiling at his friend.
"Just for that, you're last in the buffet line, Finny!"
Everyone laughed, Finn blushing, but smiling.
Lucas' violet pools scanned everyone's watching eyes, the young man smiling a wide smile.
Everyone saw the joy and happiness in his young handsome face.
"This is a new custom for myself and my family and friends. A day of giving thanks. Our traditions are different than yours, but perhaps similar in their realities. For one should always give thanks for what one has. To have a special day for just that seems so wonderful. Tomorrow, we celebrate our coming together as one family, joined by many families, but by one truth--Love. We are a family of love. In many ways, in many realities. Brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, soulmates and dear friends. That combination is the creation we see before us. I believe I am the center of that creation. For my love flows through all of you. As your love flows into my soul. The next few days will be the happiest of my life. For I have everything I've ever dreamed of. I have all of you and your love. I shall give thanks every day for all of your love. It is the breath of my life."
Everyone clapped, a lot of people showing tears, Josh's hand squeezing Lucas'.
The young man smiled, picking up his wine glass.
"Before we dine on the Carlisle fare this evening, I'd like to propose a toast." Lucas said, everyone taking their glasses in hand.
"Magic is a part of me. Love is the greater part. Before me I see the mirrored vision of all our dreams--Love. We are loved and we love. New love flows around us, as does matured deep love. This house is now filled with open love. I'd like to toast that love. To the love we all have in our hearts, to the love we all find in our soulmates. To love and life! To love!"
"To love!" everyone said, raising their glasses, sipping their drinks, then applause filling the patio again, Lucas smiling.
Emerson walked up to his grandson, Lucas smiling at him.
"You have a soul of enriching love, Lucas. Your words would move any soul, lost or found by love." he said, Lucas smiling at him.
is the essence of my magic, Grandfather. I am love."
Emerson smiled, Lucas smiling back, his violet pools meeting Colton's blue.
"On that sentiment, we should head for the buffet. You can relax, Finny. You've got a long wait ahead of you." Lucas smiled, Finn blushing, everyone laughing.
"That's mean, my love." Josh said, laughing.
"He pays for his barbs, babe. Alain can rub him down with iodine later."
Josh laughed, everyone joining him, Finn blushing more.
Lucas smiled at his friend, waving him over.
"Come on, Delaney. I would never deprive you of anything you need."
Finn laughed, rising from his table, he and Lucas heading towards the house, everyone following.
smiled, putting his hand down on the table, showing his cards.
"Gin! That's the game!" he smiled, Roy laughing, high-fiving him.
"Damn, Luke! You're a master at this game!" Randall said, Paul shaking his head in amazement.
"Mom and Dad brought me into it when I was eleven. I've loved it forever." he smiled, handing his cards to Roy.
They were teammates, having beaten several duos all evening.
A card party had started after dinner, couples playing each other, others relaxing and making themselves at home in Josh's spacious home.
Finn and Skyler, their parents and Trish and Andrew, as well as Justin and Lance's parents were all staying at Justin's home, he having more room in his larger house.
Lucas' parents and grandparents and Josh's parents were all staying at Josh's.
Lucas had wandered around his home when he wasn't playing cards, taking in all the happiness of his extended family.
He'd walked into a few moments of showing private love, his smile calming all concerned.
The first had been Gideon, Nick and Gio, Lucas finding the three in Josh's studio office.
Gio was in the middle of a sandwich, two men of handsome beauty wrapped around each side of him.
"Oops! Sorry boys!" Lucas had smiled, Gio locked in a passionate kiss with Nick.
The three had blushed, Lucas smiling at all three.
"The love takes its first victim. I knew the magic would ignite the heart's desires." he said, Nick smiling at him.
food makes me hot, Carver."
Lucas laughed, smiling at him.
"Have I got a sausage for you? I think you're holding it right now."
Gio laughed, Gideon blushing, Nick's hand on his center.
"Got that right, Luke. It's damn tasty." Gio smiled, Lucas laughing.
"As you were, boys. I think you should lock the door behind me." he smiled, rolling out of the room, Nick closing the door behind him, smiling and locking it.
Lucas' second interruption was Jonathan and Colton.
He found the two upstairs in Colton's room, both locked in a passionate kiss, Jonathan's hands under Colton's shirt.
Harry had carried Lucas and his wheelchair upstairs, after Lucas had told him he needed to get something from his bedroom.
Lucas had been in there for a few moments, Harry waiting for him in the hallway.
He'd smiled at him when he came back out of the bedroom, the two hearing a noise from Colton's room.
Lucas smiled at him, wheeling over to Colton's room, opening the door.
Harry smiled, seeing the two young men wrapped around each other.
"I'd say get a room guys, but it looks like you already have." Harry said, his voice surprising both young men, Jonathan leaping off Colton.
"God, you scared me to death! I thought it was Dad!" Jonathan said, Lucas smiling at him.
"Sorry, Jon. Passion's center can make you lose all your surroundings. And you can relax." he smiled, Harry smiling as well.
"We. . .we haven't. . .I haven't told my parents." Jonathan said, Lucas smiling at him.
"They already know, Jon." Lucas said, Colton and Jonathan both looking surprised.
"Your eyes give you away, as your father told us. He sees your love for Colton in your eyes, Jon. We all see that. You can't hide that."
Colton smiled, rising from the bed, his arm going around his boyfriend.
"I guess our love is in the open." he smiled, Jonathan staring into his blue eyes.
"Come on, Leggy. I want our love to meet my parents." he smiled, Lucas smiling at both.
"Give it a minute, boys. Don't want to walk in there with flags flying. I see two flagpoles out in the open."
Harry burst into laugher, Jonathan and Colton blushing, covering their centers.
"Take your time, guys. Open love is beautiful. As is close private love." Lucas smiled, wheeling out of the bedroom, Harry smiling at both and closing the door behind him.
Jonathan's eyes met Colton's, his face smiling.
"Now where were we?" he smiled, pulling the older young man against him.
Their lips met; their open love showing.
The last revealing moment Lucas saw wasn't really that much of a surprise to him.
He'd felt the love flowing from the nexus of their love.
The passionate one would continually show his love always.
Lucas wheeled into the washroom off the kitchen, walking into a surprising showing of love.
"Lock the door behind you, boys." he smiled, taking in the scene before him.
Justin smiled at him, the man leaning against the washroom sink, his hands steadying him against the assault of love behind him.
"Sorry, my love. Had to get me a Timberlake snack before our loves left." Josh smiled, Lucas locking the door behind him.
Josh was on his knees, his face burying again into Justin's smooth butt, where it had been before Lucas rolled into the unlocked bathroom.
"You already had dessert, Beamy." Lucas smiled, Justin feeling Josh's laughter against his center, his stubble hair rubbing against his ass cheek as he laughed.
"Haven't gotten to the creamy filling yet, babe." Josh said, his hand stroking Justin's large shaft, his precum lubing his hard shaft.
Justin moaned, his butt moving further back.
Lucas smiled, wheeling up to the sink, Justin leaning down, his lips meeting Lucas', the young man feeling his passion.
"Our man's on fire, Beamy. What are you doing back there?"
Justin moaned again, feeling Josh's tongue do its magic trick.
"Oh, Josh! God I remember that tongue! Oh God!" he moaned, Lucas's lips meeting his again to silence him.
Justin's body trembled, Lucas' fingers going under his polo shirt that he still wore, attaching to his right nipple, rubbing it.
Justin's body trembled again when he felt Josh's mouth leave his ass, his shaft suddenly engulfed in wetness.
Josh felt the swelling immediately, his mouth filling with a rich creamy fluid, Josh gulping all of it down.
Justin's body sagged, Lucas feeling the weight of it on his chest, his arms wrapping around Justin's back.
The two broke their kiss, Justin's head going against Lucas' chest.
"Oh God, guys! That was. . .that was amazing." he softly said, gasping for breath, Lucas kissing his forehead.
"That'll hold you for now, sexy. You'll just have to be content with just our Lancy tonight." Lucas smiled, Josh smiling at him, the man now standing behind Justin, one hand slapping his smooth ass.
"That dessert was creamy indeed."
Justin laughed, turning and looking up at his friend.
"Delicious as always, Jus. Brewed with love."
Justin smiled, Josh leaning down and kissing him, and then Lucas.
Lucas licked his lips.
"But way so fattening."
All three laughed, Justin rising from Lucas' lap, pulling his pants up, Lucas showing a pout on his face.
"Okay, Timberlake. Hide the treasure. You know your ass is going to be mine when this weekend is over."
Justin smiled, leaning down and kissing him on the lips again.
"Meet you here tomorrow night at ten. And we'll definitely lock the door." he smiled, Lucas smiling.
"I'll bring the duct tape to tape your mouth shut, our screaming moaner."
Josh laughed, Justin blushing.
"Your love moves me, guys." he smiled, Josh kissing his lips, his arms going around him.
"That's fine with us, sexy." Josh smiled, Justin grinning at him.
"I know, horn dog. Hence you dragging me in here." he smiled, Josh blushing now, looking at Lucas.
"He was bent over in the kitchen, putting a couple of pans away. My lust took over." he said, Lucas smiling.
"Lucky you." he smiled, Justin and Josh both smiling at him.
"You two get yourself presentable. I`ll go find our monster. I need a little loving as well." he smiled, wheeling towards the door, leaving the bathroom.
Justin and Josh smiling at each other, Justin pulling him close.
you, Josh. I'm yours whenever you need me."
Josh smiled, the two kissing again.
Lucas wheeled into the living room, smiling at the man laying across the couch, his eyes closed.
He wheeled up to the couch, his hand going against Lance's chambray shirt covered chest.
He rubbed its toned beauty, Lance's green pools slowly opening.
"Sorry, Luke. Kinda dozed off there. Was waiting for Justin to come in, we're playing Finn and Andrew next round." he smiled, Lucas leaning in, their lips meeting.
Lance tasted a deep richness off Lucas' lips, licking his own when theirs parted.
"I see you found him." Lance smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
found him actually. I just walked into the ending of it. Josh gave me a taste
with his lips."
Lance smiled, staring into Lucas' violet pools.
"No, Lucky Joshy. The boy was on fire."
Lance laughed, his fingers rubbing Lucas' cheek.
"His love is passionate, and intense."
know. Lucky us."
Lance smiled, the man moving, sitting up on the couch, Lucas seated in front of him.
Their eyes met again, Lance leaning forward and lightly kissing his lips, Lucas feeling his love.
"I love you, Lucas. I want to know what's going on." Lance said, Lucas staring at him.
"Nothing's going on, Lance. I'm here in the center of my happiness. I have you and Josh and Justin. And I now have my family surrounding me. I'm beyond happy."
Lance took Lucas' hand in his, Lucas staring into his green pools.
your choice, Lucas? You said earlier that it came down to your choice."
Lucas sighed, Lance staring at him.
"I keep forgetting how intelligent you are, Lance." he said, Lucas moving, the young man lifting himself out of his wheelchair, sitting down on the couch beside Lance, his arm going around him.
"What's going on, Luke? I've been watching you these last few weeks. You've been saying some strange things, and your gaze has been very watchful." he said, Lucas' eyes meeting his.
"Have you ever felt that you're on the edge of life, Lance? That you feel that something's going to happen?"
"You mean you're sensing something ahead? Is there danger close?" Lance said, Lucas feeling his protective love.
sense a change coming, Lance. Something keeps flowing through my mind. A phrase
"What are the words, Luke?"
Lucas stared at Lance.
"'To save love one makes a choice against the greater good. The result may be everything, or it may be the unleashing of the greater reality. Love is coming, destiny faces its own truths.' That was the phrase."
Lance mulled the words over in his mind, their meaning lost to him as well.
"It sounds like a prophecy, Luke. You may have to make a choice between good and evil, maybe?"
"I'm not sure, Lance. All I know is that a greater reality has already shown itself."
Lance stared at Lucas.
"What reality, Luke?" Lance said, staring with love at his friend.
know what I need to do to walk again, Lance."
Lance looked surprised, a smile showing on his face.
"Really, Luke? That's unbelievable! And that's awesome!" Lance said, the man seeing Lucas' eyes lower, no smile showing on his face.
"What's wrong, Lucas? Aren't you happy about that?" he said, raising Lucas' head by his chin, staring into his violet pools.
choice isn't mine, Lance."
"What do you mean, Lucas?"
Lucas stared towards the kitchen, the young man sighing.
"It's Colton, Lance. He has the magic to heal all of me."
"His magic is stronger than yours?" Lance said, a look of awe showing on his face.
"No, Lance. But the truth within him is the stronger magic. The choice he has to make is whether to reveal that truth or unleash a greater uncertainty."
"What do you mean, Luke?"
Lucas stared into his green pools.
"Colton is the future of all of us, Lance. He's the Curucuar."
End of Chapter 141
the hell does that mean?
He's the future of all of us?
What's Lucas talking of?
Orion's returned to center stage, their tour continuing.
Their fans have increased, Lucas' love flowing through his music.
His and Josh's families have arrived, Thanksgiving ahead.
A family joins, love and magic may flow.
We all assume Lucas' magic will show itself through the holidays.
Up next: A new threat to Lucas' happiness.
And a choice in the making.
