Chapter 154


"Lucas, are you sure about this?" Harry said, staring into his cousin's violet pools, the young man in his arms, Alain at his side.

"Yes, Har. Josh and my love that day will be beyond beautiful. Why can't all your love be just as beautiful? All our love will radiate as intensely as the sun shining that day."

Harry teared up, Lucas smiling and guiding the young man into his Alain's arms.

"You are love, Lucas. Our love would be honoured to join under your love that day." Alain said, Lucas smiling at the young black Jamaican, Josh's arm now going around his man's waist.

"But you can't come on the honeymoon." Josh smiled, Lucas laughing.

Everyone around them smiled, Justin's blue pools on Lucas' violet.

"Well maybe these two hotties can." Lucas smiled, Lance smiling at him with love.

"Oh, Lucas! Thank you for this!" Skyler said, Lucas smiling at his bandmate, Finn's arms around her.

"I love all of you. I want all my friends to have their wedded bliss. Why not all together?" he smiled, Trish walking up to her brother, Andrew smiling at him as well, her arms going around him tightly.

"Me and my bro getting married together! We're both so damn lucky, Lucky!" she said, Lucas smiling, kissing her cheek.

"Our soulmates are the lucky ones, Trashy. They get to see our marital beauty." he smiled, Trish kissing his cheek.

"I'm going to be a ball of emotions that day." she said, Lucas smiling at her.

"Right beside you, sweetie. But who's going to stop Finny from bawling?"

Finn laughed, smiling at Lucas.

Trish laughed, Andrew's arm going around her, the young woman's eyes suddenly widening.

"It's only a few days away, Luke! We have so much to plan! I need a dress!" she said, Lucas smiling at her, then around at everyone.

"I hope you'll all trust in me to know what you all need. I've already seen to the organization of everything. Tuxedoes have been ordered, dresses as well. They'll be arriving with our other friends in a few days. My heart knows of your own wishes, my magic sensing out all of your dreams." he said, everyone staring at him with awed love.

"Really, Lukey?" Skyler said, Lucas smiling at her.

"I know your love of daffodils, Sky. A dress of soft yellow silk beauty will make you shine in Finny's eyes." he said, Skyler tearing up, her mother's arms going around her.

"Oh, Lukey! I had thought of that!" she said with emotion, Lucas smiling at her.

"And your Chewbacca there will look amazing in a white tux. Got to keep the hair hidden." Lucas said, Finn laughing again.

"I'd look amazing in anything. Get your camera ready, Colt." he grinned, Colton smiling at him.

"I have filters, Finny. I can make even you look passable." he smiled, Lucas laughing.

Skyler smiled, staring at Lucas.

"I'm going to look so big." she said, Lucas smiling at her.

"You will show the beauty of your youthful new motherly self, Sky.  Your angels will feel their mother's love." he smiled, Skyler smiling.

"You are amazing, Luke." Lorraine said, Lucas smiling at Skyler's mother.

"I'm myself, Aunt Lori. The me you've always known."
"Yes you are, Luke. And Josh's going to be so happy." she said, Josh smiling widely, his arms wrapping around his man.

"Already am, dear lady." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him, their lips meeting.

Lewis walked up to the two, his hand in Jacques'.

"How. . .how did you create all this, Lucas?" he said, Lucas smiling at the minister.

"I felt the joined love of all of you. I took it upon myself to lead you all to the answer to your hearts. And I met privately last night at the party with each of your soulmates. They all agreed to opening their hearts to each of you. Their love is your love." he said, Jacques smiling, his arm going around Lewis.

"Merci, mon ami. Your love made my love seek out its salvation. In a few short days I will have my life's dreams. I will have the soulmate of my love. My Lewis."

The minister teared up, Jacques kissing his lips.

"You already had that, Jacques. As he had." Lucas smiled, the young man staring at the minister.

"Thank you, Lucas. For my healed life, for my healed soul and for the beauty that surrounds us." he said, Lucas smiling, kissing his cheek.

"God's beauty surrounds us, Lewis. Our hearts hold the greater beauty of our love."
The man nodded, Lucas looking at Justin's father, Randall smiling at him.

"Would you officiate for all of them, Randall?" he said, Randall looking at his son, Justin smiling at him.

"I was always going to ask you, Dad. Our Lucas beat me to the punch." he smiled, Randall walking up to his son, staring at Lucas.

"I would be honoured, Lucas. I would be honoured to marry my son and all of you." he said, Justin hugging his father, the other couples around them thanking him, Lucas' violet pools going to Lewis' blue.

"Josh and I would like you to marry us, Reverend Saunders." he said, Lewis looking shocked with wonder.

Lucas' hand went to his shoulder.

"The faith within you moves my soul, Lewis. I could ask no one else, on the love my mother has for you. The love I now have for you as well." he said, Lewis beginning to tear up.

Jacques smiled, sensing what this would mean for Lewis' faithful soul.

"I. . .I would be honoured, Lucas." he softly said, Lucas smiling.

"Randall will marry you and Jacques, then you can marry us with your new heart of matrimonial love."

The minister smiled, Jacques smiling at him.

"Faith flows through you, Lucas. I shall marry you under God's love. Regardless of the legality of any of it." he said, Lucas nodding.

"I've done all the legal paperwork for our loving hetero couples. We of gay love will know the truth of the legality of our own souls. In God's eyes we will be couples joined under his love. Our love is real, our joined souls of marriage will be real to all of us."

Everyone smiled, Gabriel looking at Lucas.

"Damn right, Luke! Gray will be the husband of my soul." he said, Grayson smiling at him.

"Damn right, beautiful."

"We've still have so much to organize." Mavis said, Momma Mavis nodding as well, her arm going around the woman.

"Our sons are getting hitched, Mavis. Let's get moving!"

Lucas laughed, everyone beginning to sit back down again, the room flooding with conversation.

"If you'll excuse us for a moment, I need to talk to Lucas." Justin said, his blue eyes looking at Lucas with thoughtful love, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"Excuse us everyone. My friend needs to voice his love." Lucas said, everyone nodding, Finn smiling at the four men standing in front of the fireplace.

"Keep it decent, Lukey. We don't need to hear his screams of happiness." he laughed, Lucas smiling at his friends.

"No worries, Frankie. He won't bray at the moon like you, wolfboy."

Everyone laughed, Finn blushing but smiling, the four men smiling at each other, quietly walking out of the room.

Lucas' violet pools took one last look back into the room, seeing everyone happy and deep in conversations.

His eyes focused on two blue pools, seeing their happiness.

Prepare for a greater love.

He smiled, then lightly laughed, closing the door behind him.


Lucas held Justin in his strong arms, the man sobbing into his chest.

Lance was rubbing his back, his green tearful pools staring into Lucas' violet.

Josh was at Justin's other side, his arm around him as well.

Justin raised his head, Lucas smiling and wiping the tears on his wet face.

"Oh, Lucas! That you'd. . .that you'd and Josh. . ."

"Lance loves you, Jus. As do I and Josh. We all knew in our hearts that we'd marry together on that day.  Lance actually was the one who suggested it first." Lucas said, Justin's blue pools going to his soulmate's green.

"I asked Lucky a few days before I proposed to you here so many months ago. That morning when we opened our hearts in Mavis' kitchen. He agreed immediately. Josh as well when he found out." Lance said, his green pools going to Lucas' violet.

"But I see our loving Lucky has expanded the love." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"I love couples in love. I'll always want to see them join under God's love." he smiled, Justin's blue pools going around to all three, all smiling at him with love.

"I have my dreams! I have all three of you! I have so much love!" he sobbed, Josh pulling him against him, Lucas and Lance smiling, Josh kissing Justin's wet cheek.

"You always had our love, Justy. Lance and I have always loved you. And Lucas has loved you for a long time as well. His love for all of us was real even before he met any of us. Now we'll be two couples of married love." Josh said, Lucas quietly staring at his man.

"I'm going to be such a wreck that day." Justin said, pulling back from Josh, wiping his eyes, Josh's arm still around him.

Justin felt all three pull him close, Lucas' hand resting on his ass.

"But you'll be our wreck of love that day, Justin. We'll all keep you calm." Lucas said, Justin smiling at him.

"Sex before the wedding?" he smiled, Lucas' hand slapping his clothed ass.

"Let's just say you might have a pound of beach sand in your ass walking down the aisle." Lucas smiled, all three lightly laughing.

Justin smiled, staring into his Lance's green pools.

"I'd sooner have two pounds of the monster in there." he said, Lance rolling his eyes, Justin laughing and kissing his lips softly.

"I love you, Lance. I can't wait to marry you!" he said, Lance tearing up.

"I love you, Justin. Lance Timberlake-Bass has such a nice ring to it." he said, Justin beaming.

"A name of love we'll all have." he smiled, Josh smiling at his man.

"Joshua Carver-Belmont-Chasez. I love its ring."

Lucas smiled his Josh smile, loving Josh's acceptance of his joined families of love.

"The only ring you're going to love is the one I put on your finger, husband to be." Lucas smiled, Josh leaning forward, their lips meeting.

The other two smiled, watching their love flow.

The two broke their kiss, Justin smiling at both.

"How about matching cock rings?" Justin said, the other three groaning, Justin laughing.

"The boy needs to be gelded." Lucas smiled, Justin smiling, leaning forward, his lips meeting Lucas', both feeling their love.

Lucas kneaded Justin's ass during the kiss, the man sighing when they broke it, looking into each other's pools.

"You can ring my dick any day, stud." Lucas said, Justin laughing.

"I'll buy four this week. I want us all matching. And I'm putting them on." he smiled, Josh laughing.

"Three mediums and one extra large."

Lance laughed, Justin's lips meeting his, the two awash in romantic love.

The two broke their kiss, their other soulmates smiling at them.

"We will all match in our happiness and love that day. Our love will be greater than all of us." Lucas said, his three soulmates smiling at him.

"I can't believe you organized everything, Luke. You seem organized in all details." Justin said, Lucas smiling.

"Yes, I am. I've had help from Alain and Harry. They didn't know they were part of it as well. Love can do some amazing things. I hope you'll all like what I've come up with?" Lucas said, the three smiling at the young man.

"It's surrounded by your love. It will be amazing." Justin said, Lucas smiling, rubbing his ass again.

"You're going to see amazing tonight, all three of you. I haven't given you the last gift of my Christmas love. I'm going to knock a few Christmas balls around."
All four laughed, Justin smiling at Lucas.

"You can do anything you like, my Lucas. I want you so bad! I need all of you so bad!" he said, the other three feeling his emotional love.

"Love unfolds on all paths, my loves. Love's light brightens when new light is added to it." Lucas said, Justin's eyes meeting Lance's and Josh's.

Lance's and Josh's eyes met Lucas', the young man smiling at both.

"I'm thinking a few hours of soft touches and kisses will get this stud primed." he smiled, Justin staring at him with desirous love.

"Keep that up and I'll molest all three of you right now." he said, Lucas smiling, the man suddenly moving, pushing Justin up against the wall in the private hallway they stood in off the foyer.

Lucas' lips met Justin's, the man awash with his flowing love.

Justin felt two hands on his ass, both different.

Lucas broke the kiss, lightly biting Justin's lower lip, licking his chin.

"You're going to be the center of all of us tonight, Jus. My gift begins with us teasing all of you all evening." Lucas said, the man's hand lightly rubbing Justin's center, Lance's and Josh's hand rubbing his ass.

Justin moaned, the three stepping back.

"Later, sexy. Come on guys, let's leave him so he can please himself." Lucas smiled, Lance and Josh both lightly laughing, all three blowing Justin a kiss, walking down the hallway towards the Receiving Room.

The man stared after them, Justin feeling the arousal brewing within him.

He softly smiled, his heart filled with their love.

Oh God, I love you guys so much!

Tease all you want.

I'm going to let you all have me.

And I'm going to love all of you for hours.

He smiled, adjusting himself, walking towards his life.


Christmas day progressed, everyone enjoying the love and happiness surrounding them.

Everyone helped clean up the Receiving Room, Christmas treasures taken to all their rooms.

They all had a large breakfast, the meal delicious and filling.

The two Mavises all received their compliments with beaming grace, the two smiling widely.

After breakfast the group separated, families enjoying the day together, couples enjoying their opening love.

Talk of the upcoming weddings continued all morning and afternoon, the house filled with happiness.

Stolen moments were shown, couples slipping away for their own private moments of love.

Justin found the three of his heart flirtatious all day, their love shown but not totally giving.

Their soft kisses, steeped with love, and wandering fingers pumped the desires in the man, their love his singular need.

Lance was most attentive, Justin's love for the man growing.

Lucas had been giving of his love to all three, the three sensing the night would end with overpowering love.

Lucas wandered throughout the house, spending time with everyone, everyone feeling his festive spirit.

The families all joined together at six that evening, a meal of unbelievable deliciousness laid before them.

They joined as one, celebrating the day's love and the meaning of the season.

The dining room was decked with festive cheer, large candle bouquets in the center of both long tables.

Lucas said a giving, loving grace, all eyes shining with their love for him.

Justin sat beside him, Josh on his other side, Lance on Justin's other side.

Everyone saw their joined love, all four wearing loving smiles through dinner.

All ate to their hearts' content, and their stomachs' fullness.

Three large turkeys and two hams disappeared throughout the meal, everyone ravenous, the beauty and love of the day stoking their hunger.

After a rich dinner of deliciousness and desserts of rich sugary love, they all retired to the Receiving Room, Lucas asking them all to join him in an after-dinner drink and relaxing happiness.

Everyone agreed, couples joining, all walking out of the dining room, love following them.

Justin had smiled, he and his three soulmates the last to leave the room, Lucas' hand going to Justin's backside as his arm went around him.

"How finds our need, beautiful?" he said, kissing Justin's neck, the other two of his heart smiling at him.

"I'm so horny, Luke." he said, the three smiling.

"Just how we like you, beautiful." Josh said, Lance smiling as his arm went around him.

Justin smiled at him with need, Lucas' hand kneading his ass.

"The evening will go fast, our Jus." he said, Lucas kissing his neck again.

"Let's skip the relaxing. I need all of you." Justin said, Lance smiling, his lips kissing Justin's.

"We know, my love." he said, Josh's arm going around Justin as well.

The four stopped at the dining room's doorway, Justin feeling their surrounding love.

He felt Josh's wandering hand, it cupping his rising center.

"Please, guys! I need some love!" he softly moaned, Lucas licking his earlobe.

"You need to blow a load, Timberlake?" he said, nibbling at Justin's ear.

"God yes!" he moaned, Lance smiling at Josh, Lucas' hand moving.

The young man picked up a napkin off the sideboard beside them, placing it in Justin's hand.

"Don't make a mess, beautiful. We'll lick it clean later." he smiled, releasing Justin, the other two releasing him as well.

Justin stared at them, holding the napkin in his hand.

All three smiled at him, walking out of the room, all three lightly chuckling, leaving him standing alone.

Justin felt the letdown, his desires at their height.

"You bitches." he said under his breath, a soft smile coming to his handsome face.

"I need you three so much, you teasers. And I'm going to have you." he smiled, adjusting himself, walking out of the room.


Justin smiled, walking back into the Receiving Room, his blue pools meeting two violet pools.

Lucas winked at him, Justin giving him a nonchalant hidden one finger salute, the man joining his Lance and Josh on a couch, Lance's arms going around him.

Lucas smirked at his soulmates, Lance kissed Justin's cheek, smiling at him.

"You three are so getting it later." Justin softly said, Josh smiling, his hand kneading Justin's knee.

"Promises, promises." he whispered.

Justin smiled at Josh, then Lance.

"And I'm going to own that smartass at the fireplace." he said, Lance and Josh chuckling to themselves, all three looking at Lucas.

"I think he already owns all three of us, Jus." Josh smiled, the man smiling, looking towards Lucas.

Lucas smiled towards them, his eyes going around the room, everyone relaxing and chatting, the newly engaged couples surrounded by their families and happiness.

His eyes met Colton's blue, the young man snuggled on an oversized chair with Jonathan, the two embraced in love.

He smiled, having seen their love showing all day, in the open and in private moments.

He sensed the two had a private gift for each other tonight.

He smiled, feeling the continuing love.

Rosa Sharon and Stephen were in front of the tree, the two playing a board game with Nick and Gideon.

Lucas smiled, picking up a couple of logs out of the wood box, feeding the fire within the fireplace, closing the screen around the warmth again.

Lucas sighed, feeling the coming love.

He felt a hand go to his shoulder, Lucas turned and stared into two blue pools of happiness.

"Thank you, Lucas. For guiding him onto the path of our joining love. He's become so romantic."

Lucas smiled, kissing Skyler's cheek.

"He's always loved you, Sky. We both know that. I just let him go with his own romantic heart. It was he who created your proposal of love. It was he who decided on marrying you in the tropical sunshine. He loves you completely, Sky. We both feel his happiness with your love."

Skyler teared up, looking towards her man, Finn in the middle of a couch, his mother and Lorraine on both sides, the three chatting.

"I love him, Lucas. He is my life. And he loves me. Our love is complete." she said, Lucas smiling, the young man sighing softly, Skyler's blue pools meeting his violet.

"I love you both, Skyler. I give this last Christmas gift with all my love. Love gives us pain at times but the greater love after will ignite our souls with its greater beauty."

Skyler stared at him with confusion, Lucas leaned forward, his lips meeting hers.

Lance and Colton were both staring at Lucas, seeing him kiss the young woman.

Lucas broke the kiss, Skyler staring into his violet pools of tearful love.

"Lives come, love grows." he said, Skyler suddenly trembling.

"Oh God!" she suddenly said rather loudly, Lucas' arm going around her.

Finn's eyes raised, looking towards his fiancée.

"Sky?" he said, Lucas' eyes meeting his.

"Oh God, Finny!" she trembled, Finn on his feet in moments, rushing towards her, his arm going around her.

His blue pools looked down at her light blue evening dress, the front of it beginning to darken.

"I've. . .I've wet myself." she said, beginning to collapse, Lucas' strong arms picking her up in his, cradling her, Finn's arms going around her as well.

"Her water's broke. She's going into labour." Lucas said, Finn's eyes widening in shock.

"Already?!!" he said, his blue pools meeting Skyler's blue.

"Oh, it hurts!" she said, everyone on their feet, surrounding them, Horace looking at Lucas.

"Let's get her resting comfortably in her room. Someone call an ambulance!" he said, Lucas staring at him.

"There's no time, Horace. Their love is on its way." Lucas said, Finn staring at his friend.

"She's. . .we're. . .my children?"
Lucas smiled at him with love, holding Skyler close.

"Their love comes, Finnegan. And I'm going to help both of them."

Lucas moved, carrying the young woman out of the room, everyone following, Josh's and Justin's arms around Finn, the man's face covered in worry.


Everyone quietly sat in the hallway--or stood against its walls--Josh's blue pools meeting Justin's blue.

The door of the room ahead of them opened, Mavis walking out of the room.

"She's indeed in labour, the contractions are increasing. It will only be a few hours I believe. But she's strong and focused. And Lucas' love is amazing. He's actually guiding my Horace through all of it." she said, a look of amazement showing on her face.

Horace, Lucas, Finn, Lorraine and Momma Mavis were all in the bedroom, the young woman surrounded by their love.

"Horace has never delivered a child before. But Lucas seems so calm, so focused." she said, Myles' arm going around his mother.

"We called the ambulance, paramedics are coming. But the snowstorm outside is delaying them." Jefferson said, Mavis nodding her head, everyone looking towards the bedroom door.

"She'll be fine. She's strong, as I said. The next few hours will be rough, but those angels are coming." Mavis said, wiping her hands on a towel she carried out of the room.

"I'm out to fetch warm water, and some more towels. And Horace needs some medical stuff from our room." she said, Lewis and Jacques offering their help, the two following her down the hallway.

"This is so unbelievable. Sky's going to be a mother tonight." Trish said, Andrew's arm around her.

"She has Lucas' love around her. That will guide their love to us. Just as Lucas knew." Lance said, everyone looking at him.

"What do you mean, Lance? He knew?" Justin said, his arm going around his man.

"I meant that Lucas was prepared for this. That's why he's in there now. He knew that the babies were coming tonight. And that his love and magic needed to surround her." he said, Josh staring at him with surprise.

"You only need to zone in on his words. On what he said tonight. Earlier, after the surprise of his giving Christmas heart, he was talking to Skyler about her daffodil wedding dress. He said 'You will show the beauty of your youthful new motherly self, Sky'. He knew that she was going to be a new mother when she married Finn on that tropical beach. He knew the babies were coming before." Lance said, everyone remembering his words, not focusing on the one word 'new'.

"He's amazing!" Randall said, his arm around his wife.

"He's Lucas, Dad. He guides us all to our happiness." Justin said, Lance smiling as his man's arm went around him tighter, pulling him close.

Lorraine walked out of the room, looking at everyone.

They all saw a soft worry on her face, Trish's arm going around her.

"How's she doing?"
"She's calm and focused. And surprisingly she's not in a lot of pain. The blue glow of his surprising love surrounds her now." she said, her face showing a soft look of wonder, everyone looking at her with surprise.

"Blue glow?" Josh asked, Lorraine nodding.

"Lucas is at her side, his hand in hers, Finn's in her other. The moment they joined with Lucas a blue light enveloped the bed, they and Lucas within it. Lucas' magic I believe is calming her. Finn said he's feeling a great love flowing through all of them. Lucas hasn't said anything, he's only focused on her."

"It is Lucas' magical love. Lucas' love is already surrounding those angels. They're coming into his love." Colton said, Jonathan's arm around him.

Lance's green pools went to Colton's blue.

"None of you heard his words to Skyler just before Skyler went into labour. I heard them through the connection of his magic." Colton said, his blue pools meeting Lorraine's blue pools.

"What did he say, Colton?" she said, Colton smiling at her.

"He said 'I love you both, Skyler. I give this last Christmas gift with all my love. Love gives us pain at times but the greater love after will ignite our souls with its greater beauty.'"

Everyone was silent, Lucas' words flowing through their minds.

"He knew." Lorraine softly said, Mavis walking towards them, Lewis and Jacques following, the three carrying various supplies.

"Let's get back in." Mavis said to Lorraine, the woman nodded, looking at Trish.

"She needs your love, Trish. She's asking for her sister." Lorraine said, Trish smiling.

The three women walked back into the bedroom, the two men following with their arms full of towels and a large basin of water.

Everyone sat in silence, couples joined.

Jonathan's arms went around Colton, kissing his neck.

"I feel his love, Colt. Luke will protect all of them." he said, Colton smiling, snuggling against his man.

"I feel more, Jonah. Thank you, Lucas." he softly said, his head against Jonathan's chest.

Justin looked at the young man, Colton softly smiling, love showing on his face.


A few minutes later Jacques and Lewis walked out of the room, a soft look of wonder on both their faces.

"Is everything okay, Lewd and Frenchie?" Vivian said, she seated with Henderson on a small sofa.

"The light of his love. It surrounds her. She is. . .she looks so peaceful. I felt. . ." he said, Jacques' arm around him.

"I felt it too, mon cheri. A smothering of love. As if that room were filled with it." he softly said, everyone staring at the two men, Lewis' blue eyes meeting Josh's.

"To hold his love in your heart would be a gift from God." Lewis said, Josh smiling at him.

"It fills my soul, Lewis." he said, the minister nodding at him.

Colton moved, walking up to the door, his hand going against it.

"I suddenly feel the magic's flow, it's so immense!" he said, everyone staring at him.

The young man's head moved, scanning everyone, his blue pools sparkling.

"They're coming. I feel their beginning love. It's wrapped in his." he said, a large smile showing on his face.

The quietness was suddenly broken by a rather loud cry.

Everyone's eyes widened, hearing the cry of a child.

Colton smiled, walking back to Jonathan.

"He's full of life." he smiled, the silence broken by another loud cry.

"As is his sister." Colton grinned, Jonathan's arms going around him.

"They're both okay?" Jonathan said, Colton smiling.

"They're surrounded by his love, they are fine." he said, the bedroom door opening, Momma Mavis rushing out of the room.

"I'm a grandmother! We have grandbabies, Seany!" she cried, her husband's arms going around her.

"They're okay? How's Sky?" Ian said with concern, Momma Mavis' face covered with a tearful smile.

"They're hearty, robust and moving, Ian! You're a grandpa as well! They're fine! Sky's fine! Finn can't stop crying!" she said, Josh smiling at her.

"Congratulations to all of you." he smiled, the older couple and Skyler's father congratulated by everyone.

The hallway was filled with happiness, new grandparents surrounded by love.

"A hearty boy and an angelic girl! They're both so beautiful." Momma Mavis said, Trish smiling at her.

"Their parents and grandparents are beautiful, it's only natural."

"They're going to be so spoiled!" Momma Mavis said, Trish laughing.

"By all of us, Momma Mavis!"

The door of the room opened again; Lorraine, Mavis and Horace walking out, Horace's arms around Lorraine, the woman sobbing.

Ian's arms went around his wife with concern, her blue eyes meeting his.

"They're so beautiful, Ian! Our grandchildren are so beautiful!" she said, Ian smiling at her.

"How's Skyler?" he said, Lorraine smiling.

"She's tired, but she's smiling. Finn's crying and smiling at the same time. I. . .I can't believe what Lucas did!" she said, everyone looking at her, Mavis' arm going around the woman, Horace's eyes meeting everyone's.

"Lucas delivered them both with my help. And then he. . ." he softly said, Lorraine kissing his cheek.

"He. . .he breathed life into both of them. They weren't breathing." she teared up.

Everyone looked shocked, Colton smiling at both women.

"Lucas' love breathes life into all of us. There was no way they weren't coming into our love." he said, Horace staring at him.

"Lucas said the same thing after they both started crying." he said, everyone looking at Colton, the young man softly smiling, a soft blush on his cheek.

"I felt Lucas' magical love heighten. I sense he drew them into our lives." he smiled, Josh staring at him.

"Is Lucas okay, Horace?" he said, Horace smiling at him.

"He's fine, Josh. He didn't seem at all fatigued by any of it. You can all visit, just a few at a time." he smiled, everyone smiling.

Momma Mavis' arm went around Josh, the man smiling at her.

"Let's go see them, Josh. You as well grandpas." Momma Mavis smiled, Sean and Ian both smiling, wiping their eyes.

"Our children are parents, Seany. I feel so old. But I'm so happy!" Ian grinned, Sean laughing.

"Let's go see our new brawler and our new princess." Sean grinned, everyone laughing.

The grandparents and Josh walked into the room.


Josh's eyes were on two violet pools first, Lucas smiling at him.

Everyone else's eyes were on a scene of new parental love.

Finn sat on the far side of the bed, two small bundles in both his arms, his tearing smiling face on everyone.

"I'm a father, Dad!" he softly said, Sean smiling at his son, he and Ian walking around the bed, looking down at the two small faces swaddled in small blankets.

Both were asleep, their faces a soft reddish hue, Sean's hand going to Finn's shoulder.

"They're beautiful, Finn." he said, Ian's eyes going to his daughter's blue tired pools, Skyler smiling at him, the young woman covered with blankets and resting back against several pillows.

"They have your and Finn's curly hair, Skyler." he said, Skyler smiling at her father.

The man walked around the bed, leaning down and kissing his daughter's forehead, hugging her gently.

"I love you, Sky. They're beautiful. And so are you. How are you feeling?" he said, kissing her cheek.

She smiled up into his blue eyes.

"They are so beautiful, Dad. I'm okay, just so tired. Lucas' love calmed me through all the pain. And then he. . ." she softly said, Lucas smiling and rising from his seat beside the bed.

"Sit down, Ian. And close your eyes, Sky." Lucas smiled, her hand going into his, Ian sitting down beside his daughter's bed in Lucas' vacated chair.

"I love you, Lucas. Thank. . ." she softly said, her eyes closing.

Horace smiled at her, looking at Lucas.

"She'll sleep for a while. Exhaustion claims the heartiest souls." he smiled, Lucas smiling, feeling two arms wrap around him.

"How are you feeling, my love?" Josh said, kissing his man's cheek, Lucas smiling at him.

"I'm fine, Joshua. That magic heals myself as well." he smiled, looking at Finn.

The man smiled, rising from his seat, both children in his arms.

"Let me at my grandchild." Sean smiled, taking one small bundle, Momma Mavis taking the other, both little blanketed infants moving.

"Oh, they're so precious!" Sean said, his wife smiling at him, walking around the bed, handing the second infant to Ian, the man taking his grandchild gently into his arms, cradling it.

"So beautiful. As beautiful as Sky on her first day of life." he smiled, Lorraine smiling at her husband.

"Yes, beautiful, strong, healthy and robust." Lucas smiled, the man feeling a hand go to his shoulder.

"Lucas! What you've. . .what we now have!" Finn said, the man pulling Lucas into his strong arms, hugging him tightly, Momma Mavis rubbing her son's back, Lucas feeling the man trembling with emotion against him.

"You have a family of happiness, Finny. They're all beautiful. And your life walks its new path."

The man parted from his friend, wiping his eyes.

"Oh God, thank you Lucas! For. . .for. . .they weren't. . ." he said, his face filled with emotion.

"They're alive, warm and filled with love, Finn. They are in my heart as you and Sky are. Go join your family." Lucas smiled, Finn smiling at him.

"You're going to be their favourite uncle, Unky Luke!" he smiled widely, Lucas smiling just as wide.

"Consider them spoiled!"

Finn smiled, walking around the bed, gently sitting down on it beside his fiancée, taking her hand in his.

Skyler moved a little, her eyes still closed.

"The paramedics are here, I believe. They'll be up shortly." Lucas said, the bedroom door opening, Gideon's head coming into view.

"The paramedics have arrived, Horace. They're on their way up." he said, everyone looking at Lucas.

"Let's give them some room." Lucas smiled, Finn smiling at him.

"I'll take her, Dad." Finn said, Ian smiling, getting up from his seat, gently guiding the little infant into Finn's strong arm.

Sean smiled, walking around the bed, guiding his grandson into Finn's other arm.

Everyone smiled at the young man, his face showing a beautiful happiness.

"We'll leave you to your happiness, Finny." Lucas smiled, everyone moving out of the room, Horace remaining, the grandmothers staying as well.


Everyone sat in the Receiving Room, all eyes quietly looking at Lucas.

He stood in front of the fireplace, staring into the dying embers of the fire.

He'd been relatively quiet for the last half hour or so, politely talking to everyone when he'd walked out into the hallway, the young man voicing his happiness at the two newest members of his extended family.

Everyone had quietly smiled at him, several hugging him, all seeing the young man's happiness, although his quietness as well.

They'd all returned to this room, Jefferson having guided two paramedics from the front door to Finn and Skyler's bedroom, they now with her.

Lucas had suggested they return downstairs to give the new family some quietness.

Josh rose from his seat, walking up to his man, his arm going around him.

"I feel your love, Joshua. It soothes my soul." Lucas said, Josh kissing his cheek.

"You keep surprising us, my love." he said, Lucas smiling into his blue eyes.

"I always told you I'd keep you on your toes." he said, Josh smiling at him.

"How long have you known about all this, Lucky?" he said, Lucas' violet pools looking into his blue.

He sighed looking back at the fire.

"For a few weeks, my love."
Everyone looked surprised, Lucas' violet pools going around the room, Colton's blue pools meeting his.

"Your magic grows, Dad. I never sensed anything." he said, Lucas nodding his head.

"I've sealed myself off in the depth of my magic, Colt. For reasons of security and of forbearance. I would never hide anything from you intentionally. I just wanted to add to the Christmas cheer." he softly smiled, Colton smiling at him.

"I love you, Dad. I'll always agree with all your decisions." Colton said, the young man walking up to Lucas, Lucas opening his arms, Colton snuggling against him.

Josh smiled, seeing their closeness and love.

"Out with it, my little bowman." Lucas said, kissing the young man forehead.

"I felt the magic's new intensity, Luke. It was so unbelievable!" the young man said, looking into Lucas' violet pools, a look of soft wonder on the young man's face.

"Yes, Colt. The magic's indeed grown. Tonight I'm especially happy for that. I needed all of it." Lucas said, Josh looking at him.

"Was it that serious, Luke?" Lewis said, Lucas looking at the minister sitting with Jacques.

"That's a discussion for another time, Lewis." Lucas said, Colton pulling the young man close.

"Love you, Dad. Thank you. I feel the second part." Colton said, Lucas smiling and kissing his cheek.

"Love you back, son."

Josh stared at the two, the quietness of the room broken with Horace walking into the room.

"The paramedics have left. Skyler is sleeping comfortably, as are the infants. None of the three are in any danger. They're healthy, clean and calm." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"They're right where they should be, Horace. Surrounded by all our love."

"The paramedics agreed. With myself here they were comfortable enough to just let Skyler stay here. They saw her total exhaustion. She's comfortable, in no pain and surprisingly healthy. As are the infants. If anything happens we can take her immediately to St. Agnes Hospital, it's only a few miles away." Horace said, Lucas staring at him.

"Nothing will happen, Horace. They have my protection and my love. They're all beyond healthy."

"So it seems." Horace smiled, the doctor looking at him.

"Lucas. . .they were. . .they were stillborn." Horace said, everyone looking at Lucas.

"They were born, good doctor. They only needed my love to cross the veil of life. I would give that easily." Lucas said, everyone staring at him with soft wonder.

"Your magic, it transcends life, Lucas." Horace said, Lucas smiling at him.

"As does my love, Horace." he said, Josh's arm going around him again.

"You're so amazing, my love."

Lucas sighed, nodding his head.

"I think we should all call it a night. It's close to twelve. We'll all welcome them in the morning. And the world now has two new Christmas angels." Lucas smiled, Josh kissing his cheek.

"Make that three." he smiled, Lucas smiling and kissing his lips.

"I'm not an angel, babe. A god maybe, but no angel."

Josh laughed, Justin and Lance smiling at the young man.

"Lucas is right. It's been a wonderful, surprising, magical Christmas day." Emerson smiled, rising from his wing chair, Lucas smiling at his grandfather.

"I hope all of your dreams came true? I wanted it to be a special day." he said, everyone smiling at him, rising from their seats.

"Your love is the dream of all our souls, Lucas. And you've made it beyond special." Savannah said, kissing her son's cheek, Lucas smiling at her.

"You're my family. My love will make all of your dreams come true. And your happiness fills my soul."

Everyone smiled, the young man hugged by everyone, all saying goodnight, greetings of Merry Christmas exchanged.

Everyone walked out of the Receiving Room, Josh and Lucas--along with Justin and Lance--the last to leave the room, Lucas clicking off the lights, leaving the tree lights on, the young man staring at the golden star on top of the tree.

"A newness walks into our families, my loves. Two angels of beauty and love. Others join in the future. Our lives are going to be amazing." Lucas said, the three men smiling at him.

"Feeling the future again, Luke?" Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Feeling the love, Jus. And we're all going to feel yours."

Justin smiled, his eyes filled with love.

"I love all of you. And payback's a bitch!"

The other three laughed.

The four men walked out of the room, heading for their love.


Lucas stood on the balcony, feeling the coolness of the night's chilly air.

His muscular body was wrapped in a cashmere robe, his feet covered in thick foam slippers.

He stared out into the crispness of the newly fallen snow, the grounds covered in its whiteness.

The balcony had a soft layer of snow as well, its canopied top not withstanding the winds of blowing snow.

"The blanket of God's wintry love surrounds us. I couldn't sleep, Lance."

Lance stood in the open doorway, Lucas' back turned to him.

The man walked out onto the balcony, walking up to Lucas.

"It's even colder out here now, Lucky. Come back into the warmth of our love." he said, his arms wrapping around the robed man, kissing his neck.

Lance wore a robe and slippers as well, the man feeling the iciness of the night's air.

"The heat of all your love overcame me, Lance. I needed to cool down." Lucas said, Lance smiling.

"Your heat was the hottest, Luke. I still feel its liquid warmth inside me."

Lucas turned in Lance's arms, pulling the man close.

"All your beauty drove my desires, Lance. I love all three of you." he said, softly smiling at Lance.

Lance smiled, kissing his lips.

"Our HD was overcome, Lucky. He's out like a light. As is Josh." he smiled, Lucas smiling more at him.

"And he thought he'd claim us. I sensed his bravado. I nipped that in the butt quick."

Lance lightly laughed, kissing Lucas' nose.

"Three times you nipped that butt. He's our champion of desires. But you were too much even for him."

Lucas smiled, kissing Lance's lips again.

"You each have your own level of desires. There is no competition in the beauty of each."

Lance smiled, staring into Lucas' violet pools.

"The greenness of your magic has faded. You took off the ring?" he said, Lucas nodding his head.

"I wanted to be myself, Lance. You see before you the real me."

Lance smiled, his arms pulling the young man closer.

"The real you is beautiful, Lucky. But there's something to be said for the magical you. The magic heightens the greatness of your love."

Lucas' head went against Lance's chest, Lance's arms wrapping around him tighter.

"Want to talk about it, Lucas?" he said, Lucas raising his head, staring into Lance's green pools.

"I sense you're focused on something. You've shown a quietness behind the facade you've shown all evening. Is everything okay in that giving heart of yours?"

"I'm alright, Lance. Colton senses the same thing. I sense both of your watchful love for me."

Lance smiled, kissing Lucas' cheek.

"Colton has magic, I have love. You're a part of my life now, Lucas. I'll always watch those I love with loving concern."

Lucas smiled, his lips meeting Lance's, Lance feeling his love.

"We should get back to our loves, my love." Lucas said, Lance staring at him.

The young man sighed, Lance kissing his lips again.

"I have your love, Lance. All of you are the answer to my heart."

"Then you need to sleep wrapped in our love. There's a space between Justin and Josh." Lance said, Lucas smiling.

"Yeah, right! Justin's probably got Josh in a vice."

Lance lightly laughed, Lucas' eyes going to the large moon shining down on them.

"It's after three. A few hours of your wrapped love will do my soul wonders."
Lance smiled, Lucas staring into his green pools.

Lance saw Lucas' violet pools sparkling with love.

"Onward to today. I'll take in all they want to give. Their love is what matters." Lucas said, Lance quietly staring at him.
Lucas smiled, the two men walking back into the bedroom, Lucas closing the door behind him, his violet pools scanning the outer darkness.

They walked back to their bed, the two disrobing, climbing into the large bed, Lance smiling.

"You were correct, Lucky. Josh is warm within his embrace. The vise arms of love."

"So where's my clingy teddy bear?" Lucas smiled, Lance smiling and snuggling against Lucas' muscular, smooth chest, Lance's head going against Lucas' chest.

"There's the warmth of our hearts." he said, Lucas smiling and kissing his forehead.

"You warm my heart as well. Close your eyes, Lancy." he said, Lance snuggling against him, his green pools closing.

Lucas smiled, holding the man close, his violet pools looking at the other two laying beside him in the moonlit room.

Josh was laying against Justin's smooth chest, Justin's arms wrapped around him.

He saw soft smiles on both their faces, the young man smiling in his soul.

You have his love again, my Joshua.

And the newness of our loving Lance's.

And I have the three of you together in my soul.

Lucas' eyes went to the windows again, the moon shining in their center.

Welcome to our love, little angels.

The future begins.

And I will walk where I must.
Lucas felt Lance hug him closer, the man now sound asleep.

The young man stared up at the bright moon, soft tears showing in his green pools.

Sacrifices come from a giving heart, life comes from accepting all.

Lucas closed his eyes, the man feeling the two beside him move, Justin's arm going across Lucas' smooth chest.

Lucas smiled, feeling Josh's warmth against his right side, Lance on his left.

He closed off his mind, his soul filling with their love.

Within minutes he was sound asleep, the young man walking the road again.
