Chapter 148


The Next Morning


Josh's blue eyes opened, the man staring into two blue pools staring back at him.

"Morning, Jus. What time is it?" he softly smiled, Justin leaning forward, kissing Josh's soft lips.

"Morning, Joshy. It's a little after seven." Justin smiled, Josh smiling at him.

Josh looked around the bedroom, finding himself alone with Justin.
"Where are our loves?" he said, Justin cuddling against him, Josh laying back a bit.

"They're in the shower. I heard a lot of moaning." he smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"That must be Lucky again. He was insatiable last night." Josh said, smiling at his friend.

"That he was, Josh. It was unbelievable." Justin said, Josh seeing Justin gazing towards the bathroom.

"Your dreams have come true, Jus." Josh smiled, Justin's blue eyes meeting his blue.

"It was amazing, Josh. His love, his body, his desires, what they did to me. What they did to my Lance."
Josh smiled, looking towards the bathroom door as well.

"I saw it all, Jus. I saw the way you made him feel, the way Lance made him feel. He loves you both deeply. Just as I love you."

Justin smiled, his lips going to Josh's again, Josh feeling his soft flirtatious desires.

"We saw your tentativeness last night, Josh. We know you're emotional right now.  We're all willing to wait until you need our love in all ways again."
Josh smiled, his finger going against Justin's cheek.

"I almost leapt in last night. It all looked so beautiful."

"It was, Joshy. Lucas' love was even more amazing. I felt so much emotion in my soul. His love is identical to yours and my Lance's. But it also feels like nothing I've ever experienced. I'm so blessed."
Josh smiled, his hand running over Justin's shoulder blade, Justin smiling at him.

"We're all blessed. Just look at what I have in my hands."

"You have me forever." Justin smiled, Josh staring at him.

"I love you, Justin. Thank you for what you did last night."

"I only was here for you, Josh. As I've always been. I love you too."

Josh smiled, his hand moving, rubbing Justin's smooth chest.

"I've always known that, Jus. Just as I've known you've loved Lucas since you met him."

Justin smiled, looking towards the bathroom again.

"Yes I have, Josh." he said, Josh smiling.

"His love throws you for a loop. I see the same love in your eyes for your--I mean our--Lance."

Justin smiled, staring into Josh's blue pools.

"I love Lance, Josh. His love anchors my soul."

"As does Lucas' mine, Jus."

Justin smiled, his hand going against Josh's smooth chest, feeling its warmth.

"But it's nice to have you and Lucas. Fringe benefits, et al."

Josh laughed, smiling at his friend, Justin smiling.

"It's nice to hear your laugh, Joshy."

"You make me laugh, Justy."

Justin smiled, staring at his friend.

"Do I make you horny?" he grinned, Josh laughing again.

Josh moved, upending Justin, his body now on top of the younger man.

"Right to the need, horndog!"

Justin smiled, feeling Josh's smooth warmth against his own.

"I need you, Josh. Just as I need our men."

Josh softly blushed, his eyes scanning over Justin's smooth torso.

"Jus. . .I. . .can I. . .?"

"Yes, Josh. I am here for you. My love is here for you in all ways."

Josh moved to Justin's side, the man pulling back the sheet that covered Justin's body, his smooth physique on full display.

Josh's hands moved across Justin's chest, the man taking a deep breath.

"I've always loved your smoothness, Jus." Josh said, his hands rubbing all of his chest.

Josh's eyes were on Justin's center, his shaft long and hard, and a pool of clear liquid dripping from its head onto his stomach.

Josh's fingers went across Justin's abs, touching the wetness.

Justin trembled, Josh bringing his fingers to his lips, tasting Justin's fluid.

"Your love is delicious, Jus. Always was. But now it's enhanced by our Lance's and Lucky's rich love."

Justin smiled, Josh staring into his blue pools.

Justin gasped when Josh's finger rubbed his left nipple, its nub hardening instantly.

"Oh God, Joshy! That feels so good! You know what that does to me!"

Josh's other hand briefly crossed Justin's abs, rubbing their ridges.

"You seem excited, Timberlake." he smiled, Justin staring into his friend's blue pools.

Justin trembled, Josh's smile filled with love and desire.

"He should be. He's being worshipped by a beautiful naked angel."

Josh's eyes turned, as did Justin's, two visions of male beauty smiling at them.

Lucas and Lance stood at the end of the bed, both men's smooth bodies wrapped in towels.

"Good morning, my love." Lucas said, Lance having made the comment about an angel.

Justin's smile increased at staring at the two men standing together, Lucas' arm around Lance's waist.

His blue eyes scanned both men, taking in their differences and the similar love shining in both of their green eyes.

Lance's body was smooth, toned and slim, his nipples standing out from the coolness of the room compared to the steamy warmth of the bathroom.

Justin loved sucking on those orbs of flesh, their taste his heaven.

If Lance was smooth, Lucas was a vision of muscled firmness.

His body was a temple of sinewy beauty, Justin remembering every inch and taste of all of it.

Last night he'd given Lucas all his love, Lucas pulling all of it out of him, Justin filling him with all he could give.

He smiled, his blue pools meeting Lucas' now green.

"He's got that look, Lancy. We'll never satisfy that look."

Lance chuckled, his green pools taking in the two visions laying before them, both men totally exposed.

"I love that look, Lucky. It makes me feel alive."

Justin smiled, his man winking at him.

"I still feel dirty, Luke. And my man needs some loving. Joshy's got him all steamed."
Justin smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"You are a dream in my arms, Jus. But your man's in heaven in yours."

Justin smiled, rising out of the bed, both men in front of him smiling at his nakedness, his center swaying in all its glory.

"Morning, Lucky. How found the happiness under the water?" he smiled, the man leaning forward and kissing Lucas' lips.

Lucas broke the kiss, smiling at the man in front of him.

"It was beautiful, strong and needful. Most monsters are." Lucas smiled, Lance smiling at him.

"I will always need your love, Lucas. It mirrors my Jus'."

Justin smiled, the man pulling Lance into his arms, Josh watching from the bed, seeing their love showing.

"Come on, my love. I'm dirty too." Justin grinned, Lucas laughing, watching both men walking into the bathroom, Lance wearing a wide smile of desirous love.

Josh smiled, his blue pools meeting his love's green.

"His love overflows. Lance's love will calm him." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him.

"That love flows with an intensity of needful desire." he said, the man moving, climbing into the bed, his firm muscular body going on top of Josh's, Josh's arms wrapping around him, their lips meeting.

Josh became instantly lost in the kiss, the love he'd known forever from this man seemingly even more consuming.

Lucas finally broke the kiss, staring into Josh's handsome face, his eyes closed.

Josh slowly opened those blue pools, staring into two green pools of total love, their irises sparkling with life.

"Wow, Lucky! That. . . that felt overpowering. Your love. . .it's. . .it's so intense." Josh softly said, Lucas smiling at him, his fingers rubbing Josh's cheek.

"It has increased for I now have three souls within it. And you are the center being of that love." Lucas said, Josh tearing up.

"Lucas. . .I love you." Josh said, Lucas hearing the deep love in those words.

"I love you, my Joshua." he smiled, kissing Josh's lips softly again, the man moving back, pulling Josh with him.

Josh snuggled against Lucas' smooth chest, their eyes meeting.

"Sorry for interrupting your exploration, my love. You seemed on a mission with our Jus." Lucas smiled, Josh's blue eyes scanning Lucas' smooth chest, the stone necklace hanging between his pecs.

"I'd forgotten how beautiful he is. How warm and smooth his body is. My hands took over." Josh said, his eyes meeting Lucas' again.

"The love within your heart took over, my love. His beauty is nothing if not overpowering as well. I tasted that beauty and felt his total love last night."

Josh smiled, looking towards the bathroom door.

The two men heard soft voices and falling water, soft moans filling the quietness.

"His love is intense. Lance is feeling it right now."

Lucas smiled, his head raising, kissing Josh's cheek.

"You are just as intense, my love. I need your love again." Lucas said, Josh's eyes moving, meeting his green pools.

Josh saw so much love in those green pools.

"I see so much new love in your eyes, Lucky."

Lucas smiled, his hand raising, Josh staring at the ring on his finger, its smooth center softly glowing.

"I am forever and always only your Lucky, my Joshua." Lucas said, the young man's fingers going to the ring, Josh's hand going on top of them.

"Leave the ring on, my Lucky." he said, Lucas staring at him.

"The other two of our heart have experienced your new love, Lucas. I think it's time I did."

Lucas smiled, staring into Josh's blue pools.

"My love is not new, my love. Just its intensity. The magic increases its need. And all I need is you three, you the most. I love you." he said, Josh tearing up.

"Then show me how much, Lucas. I need your love again."
Lucas smiled, his lips meeting Josh's.

Josh became lost in the love flowing through him, the man feeling Lucas' strong arms move him, Josh's body going on top of Lucas', the two men breaking their heated kiss.

Josh opened his blue pools, staring down into Lucas' green pools.

"Love me, Joshua. I need to feel your touch, your beauty and your love." Lucas said, Josh hearing so much need in Lucas' words.

Josh's lips began to move, tasting Lucas's skin, Lucas smiling, feeling his man's touch again.

Josh became lost in the man below him, his heart healing with every touch.

He tasted all of Lucas' smooth chest, sucking on his nipples, his hands moving lower, and wrapping around the hardness of Lucas' need.

Josh suddenly felt his body move, the man now feeling a weight on top of him, two lips meeting his, the man lost in the love suddenly possessing him.

Those warm lips left his, Josh opening his blue pools, staring into two green pools.

In those green pools Josh saw a thousand stars, a thousand beacons of love.

"It's time, my love. It's time I claim your love as mine. As I have with Justin and Lance. My love is the beacon of your life. And I will give all to have all." Lucas said, his lips moving, attaching to Josh's again.

Josh felt his soul fill with a deep love, and he felt that beacon of love possess him.


Colton smiled, watching four men walk into the kitchen, everyone at the tables smiling at the four.

"About damn time, stragglers." Finn smiled, Lucas smiling at his friend.

Josh's arm was around Lucas' waist, Justin and Lance beside them, Justin's arm around Lance's waist.

"Sorry, everyone. We slept in." Justin smiled, Lucas smiling and hugging Colton, he and Jonathan at the counter, the room filled with aromas.

"Is that what they call all that noise now?" Tristan smiled, Randall laughing.

Justin blushed, his father smiling at him.

Josh's parents rose from the table, the man hugged by both.

"You look so happy this morning, Josh." Roy smiled, Josh smiling at his father, his blue eyes going to Lucas' smiling face.

"I'm in my man's arms of love, Dad. I'm home and I'm happy." he said, everyone smiling at him.

"Let's eat, everyone. While it's still hot." Colton said, Lucas smiling at the young man.

"I smell your flapjacks, Colt. I'm starving!" Josh said, Colton smiling widely as Josh hugged him.

"Love makes us hungry, Papa." he said, Josh smiling at him.

The four men went to the tables, joining their friends and family.

Two tables were set up, the room filled with everyone.

Lucas smiled around at everyone, seeing their eyes going to Josh often.

He felt their love for his man and for himself.

Everyone bowed their heads as Lewis said a short grace at Lucas' request, everyone then diving into the warm breakfast.

Finn's blue eyes often glanced at Lucas, the young man eating and quietly talking with his man, Josh smiling at him as he ate.

"Something you want to say, Finny?" Lucas said, not looking at him, pouring syrup on a stack of flapjacks.

The Welshman stared at his friend, soft wonder filling his eyes.

"A weekend of unfortunate drama, Luke. It started out so well." Finn said, Skyler's admonishing eyes meeting his, the Welshman lowering his.

"A joining of families, Finny. And love flowed all weekend." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him, their hands going together.

Everyone saw the calmness and love in Josh's blue pools, the identical look showing in Justin's and Lance's pools.

"I'm sorry the weekend wasn't what you envisioned, my friend. But life flows on its own path." Lucas said, Finn looking at him.

"You never have to apologize for your showing love, Luke. That's what all of us experienced these last few days. Josh the most." Lewis said, Lucas smiling at the minister, everyone agreeing with the man.

"Thank you, Lewis. And everyone."

The man nodded, Jacques' arm around him.

Everyone smiled, finishing breakfast, Jonathan and Colton filling the table often with more food.

Eventually everyone sat back, sighing with contented happiness, the two young men filling coffee cups and juice glasses.

"Could you elaborate on what happened this weekend, Luke?" Alain said, Lucas looking at the black man, his arm around Harry's shoulders.

"I've felt all your enquiring minds all morning, everyone." Lucas said, softly sighing, Josh's arm going around him.

"We all understand the danger surrounding you, Lucky. We understand if you have to keep things hidden." Justin said, Lucas smiling softly at him.

"I love you, and I would never hide anything from you." Lucas said, Justin smiling at him, Josh smiling at Justin.

Lucas' green pools looked around the room.

"The path has centered, everyone. I am on the final true path. And I know what lays ahead and what lay behind." he said, Lewis staring at him with surprise.

"You know everything, Lucas?" Emerson said, Lucas staring at his grandfather.

"Not everything, Grandfather. But I know the surrounding, congealing realities of the path."

"Meaning what, Lucas?" Francesca said, her husband's arm around her.

"Meaning I know the past my family's walked, and the reasoning behind its hidden truths."

"There are more hidden surprises within our family, son?" Tristan said, Lucas looking at his father.

"Our family is a surprise unto itself, Father. But all paths walk as they must, all players shown for who they are."
"You're being mysterious, my love." Josh said, Lucas' green pools staring at him.

"Life is a mystery, my Joshua. For some it's a second chance." he said, Emerson staring at him, everyone focused on Lucas' words.

"Who's been given a second chance, Luke?" Lance asked, Lucas' green pools meeting his.

"I have, Lance."

Everyone looked surprised at Lucas, the young man sighing again.

"No one's asked the question." Lucas said, everyone looking at each other.

"What question, my love?" Josh said, Lucas' eyes meeting Josh's.

Josh stared at him, seeing an acceptance in his green pools.

"Why are your eyes green, Dad?"

Everyone turned to Rosa Sharon, the little girl staring at Lucas, she seated with Stephen, the two youngsters having bonded.

Lucas smiled at her, his green pools looking around at everyone.

"Correct question, little one." he smiled, the girl smiling back at him.

"Is it the Belmont green, Lucas? The green of our heritage?" Tristan said, Lucas staring at his father.

"In a way perhaps, Dad. For I am now a composite of all paths."

"You are the joining of the Carlisle and Belmont dynasties, mon ami?" Jacques said, Lucas smiling at him.

"I was already that, Jacques. I am of both sides of their blood, and the creation of their courageous love." he said, staring at his parents, both staring at him with love.

Lucas' eyes went to his grandfather, Emerson staring at him.

"You once said that I was a surprise to you, Grandfather. That I was someone who wasn't foreseen."
"Yes, Lucas. You were never part of the path, of the Trinity's reality, as I have stated." Emerson said, Lucas nodding.

"You were wrong, Grandfather. I am a part of the Trinity."
Everyone looked confused, staring between Emerson and Lucas.

"My father Joshua, myself and Tristan are the Trinity, Lucas. You are not a part of it."

Lucas nodded, staring at his grandfather.

"No, Grandfather. That Trinity is one unto itself. As have all the others of your family's past been. I walk a different Trinity."

Emerson looked confused, Tristan seated beside his father, their eyes meeting.

"You're not making sense, my son." Tristan said, Lucas staring at him.

"Your pasts have walked their path, a path destined since Alsarius. I am walking another path. A path parallel to it. And that path is another Trinity itself."

"Another triad, Lucky?" Josh said, Lucas nodding.

"Yes, my Joshua." Lucas said, staring down at the golden ring on his finger.

His hand went around the stone hanging around his neck, its redness suddenly pulsing, as was his ring now.

Everyone stared at the two objects, Lucas' green pools changing from emerald to violet for a few moments.

He released the stone, everything returning to normal, his green eyes showing again.

"Magic flows through me. In three forms." he said, Josh looking surprised.

"Three forms, my love?"

"Yes, Josh. The magic of the stone, the magic of the ring, and my own hidden magic. All three are now together. A Trinity of magic. A trio that was always destined to join."

Everyone stared at Lucas, Colton's voice breaking the silence.

"Your magic isn't hidden, Dad. It is your love." he said.

Lucas smiled, nodding his head.

"Yes, Colton. Or so I've always thought. I believe now that that magic--the magic of my love--was never destined to be thrown into the mix. And its reality is changing the path."

"Your love is altering the destined path?" Emerson said, Lucas staring at him.

Lucas rose from his seat, everyone watching him walk to the patio doors, staring out into the sunshine, Josh's blue pools glued to him as Lucas stared out into the sunshine.

"My love--not my magic--saved you, Josh. The magic within me fed on the need within my soul. It pulsated all through that magic. The magic took it upon itself to find you, to return you to my love. For it knew it was the just thing to do. It knew that I could never exist without your love." Lucas said, turning his eyes, their pools now violet as always.

Josh rose from his seat, walking up to his soulmate, his arms going around him.

"I will thank that magic for all of my life, Lucas. For I have your love again, and you have mine."

Lucas smiled, their lips meeting.

Everyone sat in silence watching the two show their love.

The two broke their kiss, their eyes meeting, Lucas' changing back to green, his hand going into Josh's.

"The hidden magic I spoke of wasn't my love, Colt." Lucas said, Josh staring at his man.

"The real magic within you?" he said, Lucas nodding.

"Yes, Josh. The real magic within me is hidden from all. Hidden for a reason."
"For what reason, Luke?" Finn said, his arm going around his fiancée.

"To draw out all onto the final path." he said, looking around the room.

"It has already begun its magic." he said, staring at Colton.

"You and your sister were drawn to me by that magic. Our love for each other comes from my own soul." he said, the two young people smiling at him.

"A side benefit for both of us, Dad." Colton said, smiling at him, his love unchanged.

"And for myself, Colton and Rosa Sharon." Lucas said, Colton and Rosa Sharon smiling back at him.

Josh smiled, seeing the deep bond of love the three now shared.

"So you're saying this hidden magic within you has drawn people onto the true path they were always destined to walk?" Lewis said, staring at Lucas with wonder.

"Yes, Reverend."

"What is the purpose of this final path? Where does it lead?" Randall said, Lucas looking around at everyone.

"It leads to me, Randall. To myself and what I must do."

Josh's arm went around Lucas.

"What must you do, my love?"

Lucas stared at him.

"I haven't any clue, my love."

Everyone looked surprised, Finn staring at Lucas.

"You don't know?"

Lucas shook his head no, looking around at everyone.

"There's something deeper going on here, everyone. Yes, the destiny of all of us, and yes a greater love as well. But there's something else behind all this. I feel within me a greater hidden truth. A truth of what my life was always meant to show."
"You were always meant to show love and be loved, Lucas." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"That, I believe, was a guarantee. And that makes me the most happy. I have all of you."

Everyone smiled, Lucas sighing again.

"I have three visions of magic within me. Two of necessity and one of invention, I believe." he said, Justin staring at him.

"Invention, Luke?"
Lucas nodded, meeting his blue pools.

"Yes, Jus. I believe the two other were joined together out of necessity and destiny. The third, I believe, was created unto itself, by someone else. And that's the mystery I must solve. That will be the key to the ending of all of these paths. And I sense in my heart it will be something unbelievable."

"The showing of God's love?" Lewis said, Lucas smiling at the minister.

"God shows his love in mysterious ways, Reverend. And magic is a part of his divine reasoning."

The minister nodded, smiling at Lucas.

"I sense we are all walking a path of God's love, Lucas. And you are the one to show us all life's greatness."
Lucas smiled, looking around.

"I should wear more hats. I think I'm many people."

Everyone laughed, Lucas smiling at everyone.

"I don't want to create worry or concern in your souls. I am fine. The magic within me isn't dangerous. It feeds on love, and that will always be in my heart. The path moves forward. And even I am going to be amazed by all of this." he said, Josh kissing his cheek.

"No more than us, my love."

Lucas smiled, staring into his blue pools.

"You ain't seen nothing yet, baby!"

Josh laughed, everyone smiling at his returned happiness.

"Your green-eyed love is amazing."

Justin and Lance both smiled, Finn catching the look on their faces.

"Something tells me Lukey's been sharing that love." he grinned, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"You're next, Frankie. I'm going to blow those electrodes clean off."

Alain laughed loudly, Finn blushing.

"Can I put them back on? I can re-wire anything." Alain grinned.

"Sky does my wiring." Finn smiled, Skyler kissing his cheek.

"Yep. I read the book Monsters for Dummies."

Everyone laughed, Finn blushing more, his woman kissing his lips, her love softening his embarrassment.

"We're all leaving today, Luke." Jacques said, Lewis smiling at his man.

"I know, Jacques. I will miss all of you. Our Thanksgiving was wonderful, our love strong as ever. No drama can ever destroy that." Lucas said, everyone smiling at him.

"It's less than a month until Christmas, Lucas. Kurucu's Haven awaits your returning love." Emerson said, Lucas smiling at his grandfather.

"It awaits something more, Grandfather. And I will enjoy your returning love."
Emerson smiled, Lucas kissing his man's cheek.

"Let's leave the dishes, everyone. Let's bask in the sun for our last few hours together." Lucas smiled, Josh nodding, guiding his man out onto the patio, everyone rising from their seats.

"He's so remarkable. Nothing surprises him." Savannah said, Lewis kissing his friend's cheek.

"His magic will surprise all of us, of that I have no doubt. And his love I believe is even greater." he said, Jacques smiling at his man.

One person stared out into the sunshine, staring at Lucas and Josh wrapped in each other's arms.

That person smiled, their eyes softly glowing, unseen by anyone.


Two And a Half Weeks Later


The noise was thunderous, the darkness consuming.

Lucas felt his body moving, his feet leaving the floor.

"Put me down, Finny! You monster!"

"Frankie need food!" Finn screamed, then laughed.

Their bandmates smiled, Finn dropping Lucas.

"Bang on as always, Luke. We shone out there!" Finn smiled, Lucas patting his back.

"That we did, my friend." Lucas smiled, Trish and Skyler smiling as well.

It was two weeks later, their tour again continuing up the eastern seaboard.

Lucas and Josh had remained mostly silent about their drama, statements had been released to the press, the furor gradually subsiding.

But that hadn't stopped the media from following their every move.

And each venue had been filled with people, and media.

The fans were greater in number, their love for Orion what mattered most to Lucas.

They were now in New York City, their last two concerts just finishing tonight.

It was December twentieth, their three week break for Christmas and the New Year beginning.

Josh and Justin both walked out onto the backstage area, Lucas smiling at both, his man's arms going around him, kissing his cheek.

"Bang on as always, Luke!" Josh smiled, Finn laughing.

"Is there an echo in here?" he grinned, Justin smiling at him.

"You need to start wearing earplugs, Finny. The wind's echoing in your head." Justin smiled, Lucas laughing.

Finn folded his arms, Justin smiling at him.

"Great show, guys. First rate as usual." Justin smiled, Finn smiling at him.

"I'm going to miss it. But man, three weeks of rest! Snow then sun! I'm pumped!" Finn grinned, Skyler's arms going around him.

"Calm down, babe." she smiled, Finn smiling at her, his hand rubbing her now showing pregnancy.

"You need to rest, babe." he smiled, Justin smiling at Finn's caring love.

"No rest for monster wranglers." Lucas smiled, Skyler laughing.

"Where's the Ritalin?" she said, everyone laughing, Finn blushing.

"Let's go to our dressing room, babe. You need rest." he smiled, Skyler kissing his cheek, the group heading towards their dressing rooms.

The minute Lucas closed his door behind him, the young man was wrapped in two arms, his lips pressed against two others.

Lucas felt the love and need flowing through him, the young man pushing the man against the wall.

Josh smiled, watching Lucas and Justin kissing deeply, the man sitting down on a couch in the dressing room.

Lucas broke the kiss, Justin's blue eyes opening, staring into Lucas' green pools.

His eyes had been violet all through the concert, the ring remaining in his pocket.

He'd returned it to his hand in the darkness of the backstage.

"Someone's on full charge." Lucas smiled, his hands running across Justin's polo shirt-clad chest.

"He's been horned up all evening." Josh smiled, Lucas smiling down at him.

"And I bet you loved it." he smiled, Josh smiling.

"If this couch could talk." Josh smiled, Lucas laughing, staring into Justin's blushing face.

"I love you guys. And you on stage makes me hot." he said, Lucas smiling.

"And your missing man makes you even hotter." he said, Justin's eyes lowering, Lucas leaning forward, his lips softly kissing Justin's.

"He'll be in your arms in a few hours, sexy."

Justin smiled, raising his head.

"I like what's in them now." he smiled, Josh laughing.

"Mr. Horn Dog."

Justin laughed, smiling at Lucas.

"Joshy curbed the need for a while, but it's growing." Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.

"The ring's on, sexy. I could send you into another universe of love, but I'll let Lancy do that. Need is best when it's longing."

Justin blushed, but smiled.

"I've missed him." he said, Josh smiling.

Lance had flown back to Los Angeles for some meetings a few days earlier, the man returning to New York this evening.

"It's only been three days. But I know what you mean. I've missed him too." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Our green-eyed wonder is now here in New York. And I've got dibs on the monster. No matter how much Timberlake here needs it."

Justin laughed, smiling at his friends.

"And I've got dibs on your fine ass, Carver."

Lucas smiled, pulling off his sweat-covered t-shirt, Josh and Justin staring at his glistening muscular chest.

"I have so much more to offer, stud. Guess I'm going to need three to satisfy me."

Josh and Justin both smiled, Josh pulling Justin down into his lap.

"You go take your shower, babe. I'll keep Mr. Horn Dog busy."
Justin pouted, staring at Lucas.

"I love you wet, Luke." he said, Lucas leaning down and kissing his and Josh's lips.

"Not enough time, sexy. I've got an interview in ten minutes." he said, Josh looking into his green pools.

"I can be there, babe. It's both of us together always." Josh said, Lucas smiling, kissing his lips again.

"You take our boy home. I want three sexy beauties primed for me when I get home."

Josh and Justin both smiled, Justin kissing Lucas' cheek.

"Lance is going to be a proverbial monster, Luke. He's been missing all three of us."
Lucas smiled, rising upwards, removing his leather pants, Justin's eyes glued to his showing beauty.

"I can take on any monster. Be right back." Lucas smiled, walking naked to the shower stall, disappearing into it.

"Speaking of monsters. He's so beautiful, Josh." Justin said, his eyes having followed the young man into the stall.

"And he's ours, Jus." Josh said, Justin smiling, his blue eyes meeting Josh's blue.

"And I'm the lucky one. I have you as well."

Josh smiled, Justin snuggling against him, his hands on a mission of their own.

Josh sighed, feeling his friend's groping love.

"So, all your shopping done?" Justin said, kissing Josh's neck.

"Yes, Jus. Thanks for picking up that last thing this morning."
"Lucas will love it. For the meaning behind it." Justin said, kissing Josh's cheek.

"How goes the wedding plans on the island?" Josh asked, Justin smiling.

"Alain called me this morning. It's all completed and awaiting us. Alain's on his way back home." Justin said, his fingers now inside Josh's shirt, caressing his left nipple.

"Harry will be happy. He's missed him almost as much as we've missed Lance." Josh said, softly moaning when Justin's fingers tweaked his nipple.

"I've been busy, your love and Luke's stemming the loneliness." Justin smiled, his other hand in Josh's lap now, feeling the rising mound.

"That's what we're here for, for each other. None of us will be lonely when we have two others to show their love." Josh said, Justin smiling, his lips kissing Josh's warm lips.

"I'm so lonely, Josh. Please let me love you." he said, Josh feeling his desires cresting.

"Calmness, Mr. Horn Dog. You've got a man waiting at home who can stoke those fires." Josh smiled, pushing Justin back, the man's famous pout showing immediately.

Josh smiled, his heart filling with love for this special man.

"Okay, Pouty. I'm sure Lucas will need someone to dry him off." he said, Justin's face changing into a smile.

"For sure!" he said, the man hearing the shower shut off.

"Get in here, Timberlake!" Lucas' rich voice said, Josh smiling.

Justin beamed, rising from the couch, grabbing a towel off the towel bar by the stall, opening the stall door and walking into the shower stall.

Josh smiled, resting back on the couch.

"Go to your happiness, Jus. It's all of ours now." he smiled, pulling out his phone, dialling a number.

"Hey, how goes things?" he said, a voice answering.

"We'll be home in an hour, Lucas probably an hour after that. Okay, we'll help. And you're going to be severely molested. The boy's on fire and Lucas is stoking that fire right now."
Josh laughed, Lance's reply on the phone filling his heart with love and need.

"You can forget the rose, Lancy. Lucas is just as heated."

Josh smiled, shutting off his phone.

"God, I hope I have the stamina." he said, resting back into the couch, a wide smile on his face.


Lucas sighed, slipping his card into the slot, the condo's front door opening.

Harry smiled at him, the young bodyguard kissing his cheek.

"I'll leave you to it then. Good night, Luke." he said, Lucas looking at him with a quizzical look.

"Finny and the gang's all going out for drinks and clubbing. I'm driving them. They're across the street at Hannigan's." Harry smiled, Lucas staring at him.

"Okay, Har. Goodnight." he said, Harry smiling, walking back to the elevator, disappearing into its closing doors.

Lucas sighed, walking into the condo, stopping in his tracks.

The living room was bathed in the light of a hundred candles, soft music playing throughout the semidarkness.

His violet pools stared across the room, three visions of beauty smiling at him.

All three men were dressed in tuxedoes, Lance and Justin's seemingly black or dark navy.

Josh wore a white tuxedo, Lucas' eyes drawn to his masculine beauty, his blue pools sparkling with love.

"What's this, my loves?" Lucas said, the three men walking up to him.

"This is a night of romance, Lucas. The first gift of my Christmas love." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him as his man's arm went around him.

"That's beautiful, Joshua. You're so romantic." he said, Josh's lips kissing his.

"Our friends have offered to help. They love you as well." Josh smiled, Lucas smiling at Justin and Lance.

Lance smiled, walking up to Lucas, kissing him on his lips, Lucas feeling the love in the kiss.

"Welcome home, Luke. I've missed you." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Welcome home, Lancy. We've all missed you." he said, Lance smiling, Justin's arms going around his man.

"So I found out. These two have practically raped me."
Lucas lightly laughed, smiling into Lance's green eyes.

"Your Justin and Josh missed you greatly. As have I."
Lance smiled, showing his love for all three.

"Tonight's about you, Lucas. Your love and Josh's love." Justin said, Lucas smiling at his man.

"We'll understand if you two want to disappear. Our love can handle its own self." Lucas smiled, Justin and Lance smiling.

"Our love can handle itself as well, Lucas. But we want to help your love." Lance said, Josh nodding.

"We've two waiters tonight, my love. Dinner's ready." Josh said, kissing his cheek, guiding Lucas towards the dining room.

Lucas stopped, taking in the beauty of the candlelit room.

Two plates were on a small table, a large basket of white roses in its center, two candles lit in its floral center, the room cozy and romantic.

"It's beautiful, Joshua." Lucas said, Justin smiling.

"Wait till you taste the cook's steaks, sir." he smiled, getting into his role, Lance smiling.

Lucas smiled, Josh pulling out a chair, kissing his man's lips again.

"Sit down, my love." he said, Lucas smiling, sitting down in his seat, Josh sitting down across from him.

Lance and Justin both bowed, disappearing out of the room.

"They've volunteered to be servants?" Lucas said, Josh smiling.

"Your love has served their hearts with its bounty, my love. They want to guide you to your heart's need."

Lucas smiled, leaning over and kissing Josh on the lips again.

"All I need is your love, my Joshua. And theirs."

Josh smiled, Justin walking into the room again, a bottle of white wine in his hand.

He smiled at Lucas, pouring the wine into each of their glasses.

"Wonderful servants, Joshua. Wherever did you find them?" Lucas smirked, Justin smiling at him.

"An agency downtown, Lucas. Called Heart's Needs." Josh smiled, Justin beaming.

Lucas smiled, Justin stepping back beside him.

Lucas' hand went to his backside, lightly slapping it.

"Nice and firm. First rate talent."

Justin held in a laugh, walking out of the room, Lucas' eyes following him.

Lucas turned back to Josh's blue pools of love, the man smiling.

"We'll sample the help later, babe."

Lucas smiled, his eyes going to his plate, a silver gift wrapped box laying on it, Josh having put it there while Lucas had watched Justin leave.

Lucas' eyes raised, Josh smiling at him, handing him his glass of wine, Lucas taking it.

Justin and Lance walked back into the room, standing together.

Lucas stared at the box, his eyes meeting Josh's blue pools.

"Christmas isn't for five days, my love."

"A small gift from our hearts. But first a small toast." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him with love.

"To the love of our hearts, Lucas. Our love for each other. I love you, now and always, my love. To our love." Josh said, Lucas nodding his head, his violet pools showing with tears.

"To our love, my love." Lucas said, the two sipping at their wine, their eyes drawn to each other.

"Open it, my love. Read the card last." Josh said, Lucas smiling, lifting the small box up, untying its white bow, unwrapping the silver paper around it.

Lucas stared at a wooden box, a golden heart etched into its surface.

"I found it in a small antique shop downtown a couple of days ago. Justin picked it up for me this morning. I thought of us when I saw it."

Lucas smiled, opening the wooden box.

His eyes widened, staring at a surprising thing.

His hand moved, pulling it gently out of the box, staring at the sculpture in his hand.

It was antique brass, a vision of a quartet of love.

"Look at the faces, Lucas." Josh said, Lucas staring into each face.

Justin and Lance smiled at Josh, the three watching Lucas.

The sculpture was of four men standing together, their arms around each other, two couples joined together.

Lucas saw a familiarity in the faces, each a soft vision of the four of them together.

He saw two couples joined together, but the closeness of their bodies creating a greater quartet of love.

"It's beautiful, guys. The symbolism of it." Lucas said, Josh smiling at him.

"I know, my love. Four together, two couples apart. I had it inscribed on the bottom."

Lucas smiled, turning the statue over, reading the words etched in its brass surface aloud.


                    "Four together, two apart

                    Love together, one heart


                                 J L + J L

                          Together Forever"


Lucas smiled at the words, three smiling faces staring at him.

"Read the card, my love." Josh said, Lucas wiping his eyes, picking up the small card that had been on the gift's top.

He opened it, putting the envelope down, a card now in his hand, staring at its cover.

A heart was in its center, JL and JL written in its center, a smaller heart between the two sets of initials.

Lucas wiped his eyes opening it, reading the writing within it.

He recognized the writing as his Josh's.


"Lucas of our hearts,


Our love is one, our lives one.

You have joined all four of us with your giving love.

We love you, Lucas.

Now and forever our Lucas.

As we are now yours.

Four hearts of love, four hearts of beauty.

Love all of us, love each of us.
We love you.


Your, Josh, Lance and Justin


Lucas stared at the names, seeing each written in a different handwriting, knowing all three had personally signed it.

"We love you, Lucas. That gift comes from our heart. The beauty of our love will show always." Justin said, Lucas' eyes turning, he and Lance standing in the doorway.

Lucas rose from the table, the young man crying as three men wrapped their arms around him.

"I love you all, the three of my heart." he said, all three kissing him.

Lucas smiled, looking at the gift.

"It's beautiful, the four of love." he said, Lance smiling at him.

"Sit down with your love, Lucas. This night is about your and Josh's love." he said, Lucas smiling into his green pools.

"Dinner's ready. We'll fetch it." Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.

"You two are going to get a big tip later."

The two men beamed, Josh smiling.

"We're dessert, Lucas." Justin smiled, Lucas laughing.

"And I know just where I'm putting the cherry."

Josh laughed, everyone laughing together.

"I hope you cooked a big steak, Lance. I'm famished." Lucas smiled, sitting down again, Josh joining him.

"The biggest, Lucas. A monster of a one." he said, he and Justin walking out of the room.

Lucas smiled at Josh, their eyes meeting.

"I love you, Josh. I'm starving for all your love."

Josh smiled, kissing his man's lips.

"Food first, my love. Then the magic of your green-eyed love. We all need it."
Lucas smiled, Justin and Lance walking back into the room, each carrying a large steak.

Lucas smiled, his love growing.

He couldn't wait for dessert.



End of Chapter 148


And so our foursome of love is now joined forever.

The four have accepted the other three's love.

And Lucas loves all three within his soul.


A new magic grows within Lucas, fed by their love.

Who orchestrated that magic?

What is its true purpose?


Christmas draws near.

Lucas and his family return to his ancestral home.

Magic still simmers there, as does evil.

What will show itself there?

Only I know, and I'm being evasive.

Let's walk into the love and magic.


Hugs, Angel.
