Chapter 163


Lucas sat upon the boulder, his violet pools taking in everyone gazing at the pool and waterfall laying before them.

"My God, Lucas! This is. . .this is a vision of God's majestic nature!" Lewis said, Jacques' arm around his soulmate.

"It is beauty as God creates it, mon cheri." he said, Lucas smiling at the two men.

"It is the center of my soul, my friends. A vision of the need within its magical life." he said, Josh standing beside him, his blue eyes scanning everywhere.

"It is exactly as we last saw it, my love." he said, Justin and Lance nodding, all three taking in the wet vision of love.

Rosa Sharon climbed up upon the boulder beside Lucas, the young man smiling, his arm going around her small form.

"It hasn't changed, Luke. I remember its warmth, its wetness and its beauty." she said, Colton staring at his sister and Lucas, Jonathan's arm now around him.

"It looks so beautiful, Luke." the young man said, Lucas smiling at the young twosome.

"My love is always beautiful, Jon. You've all felt its warmth. This is an extension of that. I truly believe that now." Lucas said, Josh's hand going to his soulmate's shoulder.

"You've brought it here for all of us, again. For our happiness. For the joining of our love." he said, everyone looking at him, couples walking around the pool's greatness, some sitting on other boulders, some walking with their families, all drawn to the crystal clear blue water and the cascading waterfall on the other side of the pool.

"I do not remember there being a cliff there before, Luke." Alain said, his hand in Harry's.

"The details of the pool are a vision of what I've always longed for nature to be. I have always loved waterfalls and water. This is the vision of the place at the center of my dreams."

"We are all moved by it, as we have always been moved by your love." Lewis said, his blue eyes scanning the beautiful spot.

"I'm glad you all love it. It shall be the site of our joining love. If you so wish. Or there is the beach below us." Lucas smiled, everyone smiling at him.

"It is a beautiful spot, Lucas. I would love to marry in the center of your love." Trish said, Lucas smiling at his sister, other couples voicing their agreement, Lucas smiling around at everyone.

"Thank you all for wanting to marry within my love. Let me take care of everything." he smiled, everyone smiling at him.

"Help we will give with our hearts." Alain said, Lucas smiling at him.

Others offered their help, Lucas smiling.

"Let me take care of everything. I'll make it special. I have some ideas." he said, everyone smiling at him, Alain shaking his head in wonder.

"You can't do everything, Luke." he said, Lucas smiling at him and Harry.

"You focus on the love you're wrapped in. Let me take care of the festivities." Lucas said, smiling and kissing Rosa Sharon's cheek.

The young girl smiled, rising to her feet, Lucas joining her.

"The mothers have carried lunch with them, let's have a picnic here in the pool's vision. And its waters are soothing for a relaxing swim. The day lays before us. Let's enjoy it and discuss tomorrow's visions of marrying love." Lucas smiled, Justin smiling, his hands going to his athletic shirt, his smooth chest showing within moments.

"The water I remember was laced with your love. I have to feel it again." he smiled, the man moving, diving into the pool before him.

Others smiled, Skyler taking Diana from Finn, the man's hairy muscular chest immediately on full view, his eyes meeting Lucas' violet pools.

"We won't get turned on by your wet love, will we Lukey?"

Lucas laughed, the man smiling and diving into the pool, others joining him.

Finn crested the pool's surface, his face showing a look of awed happiness.

"This is. . .is unbelievable! I feel. . .so. . .so happy. So loved." he said, everyone smiling.

"My love indeed flows through its wetness. Try not to get over excited, Frankie." Lucas grinned, Adam laughing beside him, his bare tattooed chest on full display.

"This I have to feel." he smiled, Lucas smiling and kissing his cheek.

"You can go overboard, beautiful."
Adam laughed, he and Usher diving into the water.

Others dove in as well, the pool filling with Lucas' family and friends.

Josh kissed his cheek, the man smiling at him.

"Shall we join them, Lucky?" he said, Lance smiling at both men.

"You and our Lance join our Justin, my love. I'm going to lay out the blankets and help with lunch. Try and keep it clean, babes." Lucas smiled, the two men smiling, removing their shirts, their smooth bodies diving into the large pool.

Lucas smiled, his eyes meeting all the eyes of happiness floating on the pool's clear surface.

He felt a hand go to his shoulder, his eyes meeting his mother's.

"They all look overly happy, my son." she smiled, waving at her husband, he and his old friends Lewis and Jacques swimming together.

"They are, Mom. They have the happiness of their soulmate's love." he smiled, Savannah kissing his cheek.

"Join Dad, Mom. He looks lost without your love." Lucas smiled, Savannah smiling and joining her husband in the water.

Lucas smiled, heading towards Mavis and Momma Mavis, the two beginning to unpack several baskets their husbands and friends had carried up onto the grassy hill.


Josh sighed, laying in his man's lap, they and Justin and Lance stretched out on a large blanket, everyone surrounding them in the warm sunshine of the area before the pool.

Lunch was pretty much finished, everyone relaxing in the sunshine, all showing contented faces of happiness and nourished love.

Couples sat together with their families, the conversation all through lunch laced with happiness, joy and love.

"This is so beautiful, Luke." Trish said, Andrew's arms around her on another blanket, the two sitting with her parents and the Belmont clan.

"It is a vision of my love." Lucas smiled, Trish smiling at her brother.

"I was referring to the love surrounding us. Yours and our own." she smiled, Lucas smiling more.

"Yes, that's really beautiful." he said, kissing Josh's lips.

"Mm, dessert." Josh smiled, Finn making gagging sounds on the blanket beside them, little Julian laying on top of his t-shirt covered chest, the man laying down on the blanket, Skyler and Diana beside him.

"Watch him, Sky. I believe he's gagging on your love." Lucas smiled, Skyler laughing.

"I think it may be the four ham sandwiches he had." she smiled, Finn blushing.

"I missed my Mom's lunches." he smiled, Momma Mavis smiling and slapping his bare foot beside her, she and Sean seated with them.

"He missed good food. He can come home more often to get that." she smiled, Finn blushing.

She smiled, Finn seeing her love for him.

"My boy's got his own life now. In a few days he marries. Life goes on." she said, Sean kissing his wife's cheek.

"And I've now got you all to myself. Everybody wins." he said, Momma Mavis smiling at him.

"So true." she said, kissing his lips.

Everyone smiled, Lucas in the center of all their happiness.

"So what are the plans for tomorrow and the next day, Luke?" Andrew smiled, his fingers going through Trish's blond hair.

"Well, tomorrow are the ceremonies for our two threesomes of love." he smiled; Usher, Nick, Adam, Gideon, Pierce and Gio smiling at him.

"Can't wait, I need my angels' total love." Adam said, Usher and Pierce smiling at him, the two snuggled on a blanket with him; Adam in a sitting position, Usher's arms around him,  Pierce laying in Adam's lap, his smooth naked torso on full display, Usher's hand laying on his abs.

"I hope you'll like what I have planned." Lucas smiled, the six smiling at him.

Nick, Gideon and Gio were on the same blanket as the other threesome, Gio sitting between his two soulmates, all wearing athletic shirts.

"Your love never disappoints us, Luke." Nick smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"You won't be saying that tonight when the six of you are separated. Traditions need to be upheld. You're bunking with me and Josh tonight, Adam."

Adam smiled, everyone else laughing.

"Six are going to be extremely excited tomorrow night. Blue balls anyone?" Finn laughed, sitting up, Julian sound asleep in his lap.

The six men blushed, looking at each other, their love showing for the other two of their hearts.

"Our friends are taking all of you in tonight, our six of love. Tomorrow's visions of the other two of your hearts will make the longing more bearable." Lucas smiled, the six smiling at him.

"I'll have your love, Luke. That'll hold me till they're back in my arms." Adam said, Lucas smiling at him.

Lucas smiled at the other five, all six smiling at him.

"You're getting married together. Here at this pool. Two threesomes of love joining under its beauty and my love. Lewis will join you in love and happiness. We'll all see the beauty of it.  Trust in me to make it a moment of surprising love." he smiled, the six smiling.

"Can't wait, Luke. Your love is always giving and surprising." Gideon smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"And the rest of us, Luke?" Andrew smiled, Lucas looking around at the other eight couples and his Josh.

"Tomorrow, Sunday, is the joining of our two threesomes. Monday, New Year's Eve, is the joining of the other nine couples of love. I've planned that day into three sections of love. Three trios of joining love. First up at two o'clock in the afternoon will be Gabriel and Grayson, Chris and Chris, and Lewis and Jacques. Randall will officiate over these twosomes of love. One magical ceremony under the waterfall of my love." Lucas smiled, the three twosomes holding each other close.

"It will be magical. You'll be with me." Piney said, Chris tearing up.

"You six will have a couple of hours of our congratulating love before the next six. At five o'clock comes the second moments of love. Aaron and Craig, Alain and Harry, and finally my sister Trish and my soon-to-be brother Andrew. Newly married Reverend Lewis officiating." Lucas smiled, the six smiling at him, their arms joining in twosomes of love.

"Another break between the festivities, the six surrounded by all our love."

Everyone smiled, sensing the day would be a path of continuing happy, joyous love.

"And finally at eight, in the dying beams of the day's sunshine, my friends Skyler and Finnegan, Justin and Lance, and my own angel of love and myself will marry, the light of the day's end joining us forever." Lucas smiled, Justin tearing up, Lance kissing his cheek.

Finn's face showed a look of emotional love, Skyler kissing his cheek.

"The light of your love joins all of us, Luke. I'm going to be so happy." Finn said, Skyler smiling at him.

Lucas smiled at his friends, his Josh's arms holding him tight.

"After that will be the reception of our joined love. A meal and dancing night of new love and the welcoming in of the New Year."

Everyone smiled, all their eyes on Lucas.

"We're all going to welcome the New Year as married couples of love. We'll all cry with happiness under the fireworks of the next year's love." Lucas said, Finn smiling at him, the younger man's eyes lowering.

"It all sounds so beautiful, Lucas." he said, Lucas' violet eyes raising, their centers meeting his blue.

"Excuse me, everyone. I just need to wet my soul for a moment." Lucas said, the young man moving out of Josh's arms, his t-shirt leaving his chest, everyone staring at his revealed smooth beauty.

"Hurry back, my love." Josh said, Lucas smiling down at him.

The young man walked to the pool's edge, diving into its calm surface, everyone watching him swim across its calmness, the young man rising out of the water and disappearing through the waterfall.

Josh sat up more, watching his man disappear under the waterfall.

"Is he okay, Josh?" Finn asked, Trish staring at Josh.

"My brother's love is so giving. Even he feels the emotion behind the forthcoming ceremonies. He just needs to calm his soul." she said, smiling at Josh.

Josh smiled at her, his blue eyes staring at the waterfall again, beginning to rise from his seat, Justin's hand stopping him.

Their eyes met, Justin smiled and kissed his cheek.

"You relax, Joshy. I think Lucas feels the coming of what that day means to his soul in regards to you. I think he just needs a friend to talk to." Justin smiled, standing up, his athletic shirt coming off, Lance smiling up at him.

"Tell him my love is his, Jus." Josh said, Justin smiling down at his friend.

"He knows that, Josh. You are part of his soul."

Justin smiled, diving into the pool, swimming towards the waterfall.


Justin walked through the waterfall, its water falling over his smooth trunk covered body.

He walked through the last strands of wetness, two violet pools meeting his.

Lucas sat on a sandy embankment in the shadowy darkness of a small indentation in the rocky cliff behind the waterfall, a thick cloth blanket strewn across the sand, Lucas seated in its center.

"I thought it would be Josh." Lucas softly said, Justin smiling at him, the man walking across the sandy floor, sitting down beside him.

Lucas moved against him, Justin's arms going around him, the man looking at the waterfall roaring in front of them.

"A beautiful spot, Luke. It's so peaceful and silent, except for the falling water."

"Falling water always calmed my soul, Justin. Here, I feel at total peace." he said, his eyes meeting Justin's blue.

The man moved, their lips meeting, both feeling their joining love.

They slowly broke the kiss, Lucas' head going against Justin's wet smooth chest.

"And why do you need peace here, away from your Joshua's total love?" Justin said, Lucas pulling him close.

"I feel it so close, Jus."

"Feel what, Luke?"

The young man's head raised, staring into his blue pools.

Justin stared into the center of those violet pools, seeing a soft blue haze and then a thousand sparkling stars.

"I feel Josh's total love, Justin. I feel what he needs from me. I don't know if I'm strong enough to give him everything he needs."

Justin smiled, kissing Lucas' lips again.

"You are the strongest man I've ever met, Lucas. Your strength comes from the love you give so easily. No greater love do you give than the love you give my friend Josh. He loves you completely, Lucas. And your love for him I just saw in your deep violet pools. I saw the blueness of his love reflecting back.  His love is deep within your soul. He is a part of you and you are a part of him. A ceremony here in a few days will only show that to everyone else. And we'll see the deepness of that true love. He's yours forever, Lucas. As you are his."

Lucas smiled, staring into Justin' blue pools of love.

"And when did you get so wise, Timberlake?"

Justin smiled, then lightly laughed.

"I learned from the best. Your liquid love carries your wisdom. I may end up the smartest man on earth."

Lucas laughed, Justin smiling at him.

"Or the happiest. I'm going to drown in a triad of love."

Lucas smiled, then laughed again, slapping Justin's wet chest, the man smiling at him.

"Lance and I know that Josh is your soulmate, Lucas. As you and Josh know Lance is mine and I am his. We're going to marry the mate of our soul.  But we're also going to have the love of two others of equal love."

Lucas smiled, leaning in and kissing Justin's lips again.

The two parted, Justin staring into Lucas' violet pools.

"We are going to have so much more, Justin."

Justin stared at him, a large warm smile crossing Lucas' face, Justin smiling himself.

"Thank you for walking through the waterfall of my doubts. Your love and friendship will always guide me to the truth of my soul."

Justin smiled, Lucas' hand rubbing across his smooth chest.

"You know how to thank me."

Lucas laughed, pinching Justin's left nipple, the man smiling more.

"Can anyone join the love?"

Justin and Lucas' eyes moved to the waterfall, Josh walking through it, Lance at his side.

The two men smiled, rising to their feet, their soulmates in their arms in moments.

"Everything okay, my love?" Josh said, Lucas smiling, their lips meeting.

Lance smiled at the couple, a hand turning his head, two lips meeting his.

Josh and Lance were lost in the love flowing through them, Justin and Lucas giving all theirs.

Justin's hand moved, another joining it, pulling him and Lance closer.

Four men of love stood together, arms going around others.

Lucas broke his kiss with Josh, the man smiling at him with total love, Lance and Justin smiling as well when they broke their kiss.

"Everything is fine, my Joshua. I have you, my Justin and my Lance beside him. I love you all." Lucas smiled, Justin kissing his cheek.

"We're alone, Lucky. Want to show us how much?" he said, the three surrounding him laughing.

"I'd love to, our tiger. But Finn's just looking for cheap thrills." Lucas smiled, looking towards the waterfall, seeing Finn walk through its wetness, the man staring at all four.

"Everything okay, Luke?" he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Now it is. Lose the trunks, beautiful." he smiled, Justin laughing.

Finn blushed, his friend smiling, moving from his soulmates, walking up to Finn.

"Thanks for walking through the waterfall of my love to find me, Finny. I feel my brother's love." he said, Finn smiling, Lucas' arms going around him.

The Welshman smiled, hugging his friend close.

"You planned this all, didn't you? You and I marrying together." Finn said, Lucas breaking their embrace, staring into Finn's blue pools.

"Someone's got to keep you from bawling. We'll have each other's backs." he smiled, Finn smiling widely.

"I'm there for you, brother."

Lucas smiled, his lips meeting Finn's, the Welshman surprised, feeling the deep love coming from his friend.

Lucas broke the kiss, his face showing a wide smile.

"It's as close as I can get to marrying you yourself, stud. Want a joint honeymoon?" Lucas said, batting his eyelids.

The three behind them broke into laughter, Finn blushing but smiling.

"Sure thing, Lukey. I want to tap Joshy!" he grinned, Josh's eyes widening, Justin roaring with laughter.

Everyone laughed, Lucas smiling.

"Let's get back to our families and friends. The days ahead need organizing. And the love continues."

Everyone smiled, the other three walking up to the two young men.

"You can tap me anytime, Finny." Justin said, Finny smiling, slapping his wet trunks-covered ass.

"Later sexy. I'll open you up good for these three."

All five laughed, walking back through the waterfall of Lucas' love.

No one saw a soft shadow move in the darkness, then disappear.


Lucas smiled, the young man feeling the arms wrapped around him.

He was dancing a slow dance, two brown pools staring into his violet.

"Thank you for everything, Luke. I've never been so happy." Gio said, Lucas smiling, his arms moving, settling on Gio's firm butt cheeks.

"You haven't had me, Gio. There's only so much happiness a man can take."
Gio laughed loudly, Lucas smiling.

The two were dancing around with others, the sandy beach filled with dancing happiness.

It was late evening, another large party of happiness going in full swing.

The day itself had been a day of shining sunny happiness.

Lucas and others had organized fun and games all day for everyone, everyone enjoying themselves immensely.

They'd all played volleyball and other games, the pool surrounded with happiness and love all afternoon.

Late afternoon they'd all walked back to the beach and their cabanas, Lucas informing them all of another feast for supper, the central beach its location again, the buffet set up on the veranda again.

Everyone had dined on rich food again, moments of toasting happiness given throughout the meal.

The two threesomes of love were toasted, their day of happiness coming soon.

Lucas' toast had been the most moving, he responding to six toasts of thankful love.

Adam's and Nick's had been the most emotional, their other two of love holding them close, Lucas staring at all six with tearful love.

After the six had individually thanked him, Lucas had risen from his blanket with Josh and Justin and Lance, the young man smiling at the two threesomes seated together on one blanket, his violet pools looking around at everyone.

"Thankfulness comes from a soul when it has been lost and has then found its salvation. I see seated before me six souls that in different ways were lost at one point in their lives. They all walked separate paths, but flowing beside those paths was destiny. The destiny of the love that always followed them. That was always destined to cross their path later on. Love is an illusion that follows all souls. Those souls just need to see where the truer path leads. It always leads to the love denied, to the love only hidden from them. I see before me six paths that crossed. That found the love they didn't know existed. Usher's brown pools looked upon a blue-eyed vision of love one day, seeing before it a vision of total love. Adam's blue pools saw the same thing. Later in life, after both had walked paths of lustful loss, they saw the greater vision in those staring pools. True love. A true love that both were always meant to share. But it was a love that required someone more to achieve its full potential. And at my own home, those two sets of loving eyes stared into another set of blue. A young doctor who had never experienced love. A young man who needed a special love. A love he sensed that day in those other four pools of love. I took it upon myself to guide those three to the reality of their souls. In each other they would find their life's need. I need no thanks for that. To see love grow is the thanks I receive. It makes my heart live."
Usher and Adam were in tears, Pierce between them crying also.

"And another twosome of love walked a path as well. One similar to the other two already spoken of. Lost within the cycle of searching need, of false desires. I showed that soul that there's more to life than just need and desire. I guided that man onto another path. A path to another individual, lost in another reality. One cannot cover one's hopes with a career. The first law of reality is to seek your own heart's needs and hopes. That young lawyer of love found those hopes in the arms of that lost soul of need. Each found the love they needed. But it as well wasn't whole. That twosome needed another to heal all its love. To create a greater love. A truer love. They found the answer to all their dreams in his brown eyes. In his youthful beauty and in the desires of each other. A threesome of love was created again. Each mirrors in its intensity, in its beauty and in its total love. Tomorrow those six of love and happiness marry. Tomorrow I receive the true thanks I deserve. I will see the joining of all your love. And each of you will be lost in the trueness of what you'll have."

The six were now openly crying, Lucas smiling and raising his glass.

"To your love. It will shine its true colors tomorrow. And we shall watch it grow forever. To your new love! To the six of happiness and love!"

Everyone had toasted them, the six rising from their blankets, Lucas enveloped in their sobbing love and happiness.

Here it now was hours later, Lucas dancing with Gio in his arms, the Cuban's love showing in his soulful brown eyes.

Gio's head went against Lucas' warm chest, the young man smiling, feeling his close friendship and love.

The two continued to dance, Lucas' violet pools meeting two sets of blue.

Nick and Gideon were dancing beside them, both smiling at Lucas.

Lucas' violet pools looked around, seeing all the joining happiness; couples dancing together, others seated in locked embraces of love, others walking on the darkened beach.

He smiled, seeing Harry dancing with Alain and Usher, the young blond bodyguard between the two black men, all three smiling with happiness.

Adam and Pierce were dancing on Lucas' other side, Adam's eyes meeting Lucas', Pierce's head against Adam's Hawaiian shirt-covered chest.

"The cookie of our hearts." Lucas smiled, Adam looking at Usher and the other two, his eyes meeting Lucas' again.

"That looks like one tasty Oreo." Lucas smiled, Adam laughing, then grinning.

Pierce smiled, snuggling against him, pulling him closer, Adam's grin widening.

"The hours are coming fast. Separation soon comes." Lucas smiled, Adam's blue eyes looking towards Usher, then down at Pierce.

"Let's skip that, Luke." Nick said, Gideon agreeing, kissing his man's neck.

"I'm all for that." Adam said, Pierce agreeing.

"No way, boys. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, as they say. And the older ones here won't stand for it." Lucas grinned, lightly laughing, the young man feeling a hand hit the back of his head.

His violet pools met two blue pools, Grayson smiling at him, Gabriel in his arms, the judge having been the one to slap Lucas.

"Do I have to get a restraining order out on all six of you? You must stay one thousand feet away from each other beginning at midnight. The law's the law." the judge said, his face showing its judicial calmness.

Lucas burst into laughter, Gio raising his head, the judge's fašade breaking, and his laughter joining Lucas'.

Grayson smiled at the dancing couples, Gabriel kissing his cheek.

"And he calls us old. Come on sexy, let's trip the lights fantastic." Grayson laughed, he twirling Gabriel in his arms, the two dancing faster away from them.

"Old love, it's remarkable!" Gio smiled, Lucas kissing his cheek.

"And it can't hold a candle to young love." he smiled, Gio smiling at him.

"May I cut in?" Nick said, Lucas smiling, he and Nick changing partners, Gio's eyes sparkling with Nick's love, their lips meeting, their arms going to each other's asses.

Gideon smiled, Lucas' arms going around him.

"From youthful passion to youthful beauty. This night gets better and better." he smiled, Gideon smiling.

"I'll go get Colton for you then." he smiled, Lucas laughing.

"I think his uncle will do nicely." he said, Gideon smiling.

"I haven't had a chance to thank you personally, Luke. For what you've done for Colton, Rosa Sharon and myself."

"Your best man and your flower girl are happy, Gid. I'll always give all for that. As I will give for you. Your happiness with the two of your love is what matters to my happiness." Lucas said, Gideon tearing up.

"I love them all, Luke. My nephew and niece. My twosome of love. I am so happy. For so many years I had nothing. Just my career. I didn't see the realness of life around me." he said, Lucas kissing his cheek.

"The past is the past, Gideon. The future will be so much better."

The young lawyer smiled, looking towards his soulmates dancing together, seeing their groping love.

"Gabriel was correct, Luke. Time goes short. If you'll excuse me, I need their love to guide me to tomorrow." the man smiled, releasing Lucas, the young man nodding.

He watched Gideon walk over to Nick and Gio, the man whispering to both, both showing loving smiles.

Lucas watched all three leave the dancing area, walking towards Justin's cottage.

He smiled, feeling two arms wrap around him, two lips kissing his neck.

"Not in public, Ush. Adam's such a jealous beast."

He felt a hand slap his ass, the young man smiling.

"Kinky foreplay. Beast indeed." he smiled, turning around in Adam Levine's strong arms, the singer smiling at him, pulling him close.

"I haven't danced with you tonight, Luke." Adam smiled, beginning to move his hips, Lucas matching his rhythm.

"Was saving that for later, Adam. Josh and I were going to dance you into our desires."

Adam blushed, Lucas laughing, kissing his nose.

"Relax, beautiful. We're your friends tonight, nothing more. Josh may have had you, but I can control myself."

Adam blushed more, Lucas pulling him close, lightly laughing.

"The past is the past, Adam. Our friendship is on its true path. I'm here for you tonight as a good friend."

Adam teared up, his head going against Lucas' strong muscular t-shirt-covered chest.

"Thank you for all this, Lucas. For the love filling my soul."

Lucas smiled, kissing his forehead.

"Your Ush's and your Pip's love is yours, Adam." Lucas smiled, Adam raising his head, staring at him with soft surprise.

"How did you know his pet name?" he began to say, Lucas kissing his cheek.

"He loves both of you, Adam. Pip's heart needs both of you. I feel the new love in his heart. In all your hearts."

Adam smiled, looking towards his soulmates, Pierce now dancing with Lance, Usher still with Alain and Harry.

"Excuse me, Luke. I have to feel their love for the last moments." Adam smiled, Lucas nodding and releasing him.

The singer walked over to Usher, then the two of them walking up to Lance and Pierce.

Within moments the three had walked off into the darkness, Lucas feeling two arms wrap around him from behind again, lips on his neck again.

"I felt you love coming, my angel." Lucas smiled, Josh turning him in his arms, their lips meeting.

Both felt their own singular love, their kiss etched with it.

"I see the six of love have disappeared. Your love igniting theirs." Josh smiled, dancing with his man.

"They just need a reassuring touch of love to steel their hearts for the long wait." Lucas smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"So any plans for Mr. Levine tonight?" Josh smiled, Lucas smiling at his man.

"Just our love, Beamy."

"Justin will be ecstatic." Josh grinned, Lucas laughing.

"He only needs our friendship, pervert." Lucas smiled, Josh blushing.

"I know, babe. Was just joshing."

"My Josh, the josher. And my Justin, Just so damn sexy. And Lance with his lance of love."

Josh laughed, Lucas smiling at him.

"And maybe Adam. A damn sexy man."

Josh smiled, pulling his man close.

"You leave the sexiness to your three beauties, babe." he said, Lucas smiling.

"Only way I need it, my beauty."

Josh smiled, Lucas' head going against his chest.

The two danced, love flowing around them.


Lucas smiled, watching the six before him, two sets of three staring at each other.

It was almost midnight, their parting at hand.

Everyone around them was smiling at them, the night winding down.

Some were helping Josh and Lance clean up the beach, other relaxing around a large bonfire Lucas had started, a soft chill in the tropical air.

Aaron smiled, walking up to his brother, his hand in Craig's.

Nick was wrapped in Gideon's arms, Gio a second shadow to both.

"Time to go, Nicky. You'll see their love tomorrow, bro." Aaron smiled, Gideon and Pierce smiling at him.

"I love you, Gid. I love you, Gio." he said, the other two stating the same words of love to each other.

Aaron smiled, his arm going around his brother.

Nick was staying with him and Craig tonight in their cabana, Gio staying with the two Chrises, Gideon sleeping with his nephew and niece.

"You need to bail as well, Gio. Piney's got a bottle of rye, let's have a nightcap and talk." Chris smiled, the Cuban smiling at him.

The three men quickly kissed, their lips lingering, Aaron smiling and pulling his brother reluctantly away from his soulmates.

"Come on, Uncle Gid. Let's put Rosy to bed." Colton smiled, Gideon staring after his soulmates, the two walking away from him towards the cabanas.

Gideon nodded, leaning down and picking up Rosa Sharon, the young girl sound asleep on a blanket by the fire.

Colton smiled, Lucas kissing all three on the cheek.

"Until tomorrow, my family." he smiled, Gideon smiling, carrying Rosa Sharon towards their cabana.

Lucas smiled after them, his eyes moving towards the other threesome sitting together on a blanket.

"T-minus four minutes, guys." he smiled, Usher smiling and standing up, Pierce and Adam rising as well.

Usher was staying with Joey and his family, Joey offering him his friendship.

Pierce was staying with Trish and Andrew, and his uncle Sol, he and the young lawyer fast becoming friends.

The three men stood close together, Lucas smiling at all three.

"One for the road, gentlemen." he smiled, the three smiling, kissing each other, everyone seeing the love in their eyes and their emotions.

"Until tomorrow, my loves." Usher said, the two men smiling at him.

"I love you both. Tomorrow begins forever." Pierce said, Trish smiling at him.

"I love you, my loves. Until tomorrow evening." Adam said, Usher kissing him again, and Pierce as well.

The singer teared up, Lucas' arm going around him.

"He's in good hands. As you both shall be. Until tomorrow, my friends. A pool of love will show three diamonds twice." Lucas smiled, all three smiling, looking into each other's eyes.

Usher moved, walking with Joey and his family, Pierce walking with Andrew's arm around him, Trish at his side as well.

Adam stared after them, Lucas kissing his cheek.

"The night dies down. You need a good sleep, a refreshing day of love coming." Lucas smiled, Adam smiling at him.

"I'm really not that tired, Luke." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Then let's sit around the campfire and relax." he smiled, the two men sitting down with their remaining friends.


An hour later the five of the central cottage found themselves alone, Lucas smiling and listening to his friends' talk of past musical adventures.

Adam had talked openly about his past, his friends hearing his own admissions of past conquests, all of them save Lucas included.

He'd been hugged by all three former boybanders, Lucas smiling at their now closeness.

"I envy you their giving love, Luke. I see so much love in their eyes for you." Adam said, the three singers smiling at him.

"We all love each other, Adam. It's a love built on respect, trust, honesty and openness. The same love you now have with your two men." Justin said, Adam smiling at him.

"I still can't believe where I am. Here on this island with their love. And with your now showing friendship. After how I treated you three, you and Justin especially, Lance. I see the depth of your giving hearts. I'm so glad you've forgiven me. That you want my friendship." he said, Lance's arm going around him.

"We see your friendship, Adam. We see the real you. A loving, caring, giving man. The man before us is a greater man than your old self. We welcome your friendship and love." Lance said, the man smiling, all three men moving, each hugging him, kissing his cheek.

"I can't believe this." he said, Lucas smiling up at him, the other four standing.

The young man rose to his feet, his hand going to Adam's shoulder.

"Believe it, Adam. Tomorrow begins your new life. A life of love and friendship. We'll all be here for you. Me the most. And I didn't have to bed you to see the real you." Lucas smiled, Adam smiling at him.

"The one regret in my life."
All five laughed, Lucas smiling widely.

"You wish. We all need to keep dreams in our souls. The greater beauty is the reality that surrounds us."
Adam nodded, yawning.

"Time for bed, guys. I'll extinguish the fire, you boys head into the cottage. It's after one." Lucas smiled, moving towards the fire pit.

The four men smiled, walking towards the cottage, walking up onto the porch.

Lucas smiled, dousing the embers in the firepit with a pail of water from the beach, smoke filling the air.

He covered the ashes with sand, smiling and walking towards the cottage.

He walked into the cottage's living room, Adam smiling at him, he and Josh seated on a couch in front of the large picture window.

"Where are the other two of our souls?" Lucas smiled, Josh smirking.

"They were hitting the shower before bed." he said, Lucas smiling, sitting down beside Adam.

"I don't hear any moaning." he smiled, Josh laughing.

"Justin must have his mouth full."

Lucas laughed, Adam blushing.

"I'll take the couch, guys." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

His arm went around the singer, Josh smiling at his man.

"We feel your feelings, Adam. We're here as friends." Lucas said, Adam staring into his violet pools.

"I miss them already, Luke!" he said, his blue eyes suddenly filling with tears.

Josh's arm went around the man, Adam surrounded by their friendship and love.

"I thought as much. We all see the depth of your love for both of them. That's why you're marrying them both tomorrow. Your love for each other needs to be complete." Lucas smiled, Adam nodding, wiping his eyes.

"How did I ever deserve this, Luke? This feeling of total happiness?" Adam said, Lucas smiling at him.

"By being yourself, Adam. By living your life as you should always have. You've found the real you inside you. The real you they both fell in love with. That's how."

Adam stared at him, the young man smiling back.

"I love both of them so much!"

Josh smiled, patting his back.

"We know, Adam. We all know. And we're all happy for you."

The man smiled, Josh kissing his cheek.

All their eyes moved, seeing two male visions of masculinity walk into the room, Justin wearing only a pair of track shorts, Lance in a robe.

Justin smiled at Adam, his blue pools looking at Lucas then.

"I see he's opened his heart more. I see his happiness more." Justin smiled, sitting down beside Josh, Adam taking in the man's smooth muscled physique, Lance sitting on the armrest beside Justin.

"You've really buffed up, Justin. Their love's done you good." Adam smiled, Justin beaming.

"Gotta keep fit for my men!" he smiled, Lucas winking at him, Josh kissing his cheek.

Adam smiled, looking at all four.

"I'll let you go to bed, guys." he said, moving back on the couch, Lucas' hand going to his bare knee, the singer wearing board shorts and a Hawaiian shirt.

"Now, Adam. Friendship begins with trust. And the warmth of each other." Lucas said, the other three of his heart smiling at him.

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

"Tonight, of all nights, your friends will stand by you. Will hold you and be there for you."

"Lucas, I can't. . .I wouldn't feel right. . ." Adam softly said, Josh leaning in and kissing his cheek.

"We're here for you, Adam. As the four friends you need tonight."

The man teared up, Justin smiling at him.

"Besides, been there, done that." he grinned, all five laughing.

Lucas stood up, Adam staring up at him, Lucas extending his hand.

"Join us, Adam. Tonight we'll be what you need."

The man teared up, taking Lucas' offered hand, Lucas pulling him up.

The other three smiled, rising as well.

Lucas' put his arm around the handsome singer, staring into his blue eyes.

"Friendship surrounds you, we'll all stand by you."

"Lucas. . .will you. . .you've done so much for me!" Adam said, tearing up more.

"I will stand by you, as you need me."
The man smiled, the four friends guiding him towards the bedroom.

The four walked into it, Josh pulling his shirt over his head, his smooth chest coming into view, Lance smiling and discarding his robe, the man wearing a pair of black boxer briefs.

Adam stared at both, both men smiling at him.

"You're both more buffed than I remember. Lucas' love has done wonders for all of you."
All three smiled, Lucas smiling at him as well.

"You wouldn't think I would deserve any less? They are all I need. Three of beauty and desire."

Adam smiled, Lucas smiling and pulling off his t-shirt.

Adam stared at his chiseled torso, the young man smiling, his shorts leaving his body as well, white briefs gleaming on his tanned body.

"Join the club, Levine. Let's see those tats." Lucas smiled, Adam blushing, his Hawaiian shirt coming off, his shorts joining it on the chair by the bed.

He stood in white boxer briefs, the four smiling at him.

"The roadmap to your soulmates' desires. They're so damn lucky!" Lucas said, Adam beaming.

"I'm the lucky one." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"In the middle, tattooed beauty." he smiled, Adam smiling, Justin pulling the blankets back.

The man moved, climbing into the bed.

Lucas joined him, the other three moving into bed as well, Justin on Adam's right side, Lucas on his left.

Josh snuggled against Lucas, Lance snuggling against his Justin.

Adam softly smiled, surrounded by so much male physical beauty.

"Wanna snuggle, sexy?" Lucas smiled, Adam softly blushing.

Lucas moved, pulling the man against him, Adam softly surprised by his movement, feeling the young man's smooth heated skin against his.

"Close your eyes and let the heartbeat of my friendship guide you to slumber. Then two visions will soon be in your arms."

Adam teared up, his head going against Lucas' chest, Lucas' arms going around him, Justin snuggling into his back.

Lucas began to hum, Adam sighing, snuggling more into Lucas' warm friendship.

Lucas' three soulmates smiled at him, the young man closing his eyes, the three others joining him.

The bed settled down, Lucas' violet pools slowly opening.

He felt the warmth of the new beauty against him.

He smiled, his violet pools softly glowing a soft shade of green.

Tomorrow hearts join.

And newer paths begin.

I open my heart to all I sense.

And the greater, final path can begin.

He smiled, closing his eyes again, his dreams flowing with familiar and new love.



End of Chapter 163


And so the day of quiet calming love ends.

The morrow brings the first weddings of happy bliss.

The six of happiness now separated in a familiar wedding tradition.


The next day may be long and needful for all six.

But perhaps the final vision will be well worth the wait.


What has Lucas planned for the day?

Will it be magical and romantic?
I think we can expect no less from Lucas' giving love.


Adam now lays wrapped in familiar and new love.

Lucas has welcomed him into his arms of friendship.

Tomorrow begins his voyage of love with his Usher and Pierce.


The day dawns on some surprises, Lucas guiding all.


The love continues.


Hugs, Angel.
