Chapter 172


Justin opened his blue pools, the man feeling the warmth surrounding him.

He felt two lips on his cheek, a small puddle of drool leaking into the corner of his mouth.

Justin's tongue came out, licking the wetness from his lips, the man smiling.

Your love drips into my soul, Joshy. You still taste so divine.

He smiled, feeling his Lance's own wetness on his chest, the man's arm wrapped around his waist, his blond head on his chest.

His warm breath was blowing across Justin's left nipple, the man sighing with happiness.

He felt a hand wrapped around his center, feeling Josh's familiar grip.

He looked around the bedroom, rays of warmth shining through the almost closed drapes, morning rising and showing its warmth.

His head turned to the left, staring into Josh's handsome face.

His eyes scanned down his curved body, the man sleeping on his side.

He saw the length of Josh's long phallus resting against his own hip, the end dripping a little moisture.

Lucas is in your dreams, my Josh.

He's making you drip with happiness.

I'm dripping myself.

Lance murmured beside Justin, his head moving back, Justin staring into his green opening pools.

"Morning, babe." Justin smiled, his lips meeting Lance's, the man smiling mid kiss.

"Morning, my husband." he said, Justin smiling more.

"What wonderful words, my husband. Let's call each other that every morning."
Lance smiled, snuggling more into his man, their lips meeting again, more love now flowing in the kiss.

"I'm game for that." he said, breaking his lips with Justin's, his green pools staring at Josh sleeping on his side against Justin's other side.

"Look at what God's left us, babe. A beautiful man." Lance smiled, Justin smiling as well, Lance scanning Josh's naked form.

"Mm, beautiful indeed." he continued, Justin kissing his husband's cheek.

"He's dreaming of Lucky. Notice his center?"

Lance smiled, taking in Josh's aroused state.

"I'm sure we're there as well. He was so amorous last night. We all benefited from his loving touches." Lance smiled, remembering Josh's desires, feeling them inside him still.

Lance's eyes moved around the bedroom, returning to Justin's blue pools.

"Where's the center of our love? Where's our Lucky?" he said, Justin smiling at him.

"He climbed out of bed around six I think."

The two men's eyes moved, meeting two blue pools, Josh smiling at both, the man now awake.

"Morning, Joshy." Justin said, Josh smiling, moving forward, kissing his friend on the lips, then meeting Lance's warm lips.

The two felt his love, Josh backing up.

"Morning, my loves. What a way to wake up, beside two angels."

Justin smiled, kissing Josh's cheek.

"Yes, but these angels aren't on full display." he smiled, Josh's eyes scanning the two seeing a blanket covering Justin's and Lance's centers, Josh laying naked outside the blanket.

"Oh, sorry." he blushed, Justin smiling and kissing his lips again, Josh feeling his love.

"We're not, Joshy. Your beauty stokes our souls." he smiled when he broke the kiss, Josh smiling at him.

"You're usually so conservative, Josh. You usually put briefs on in bed." Lance smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"The three of my heart are making me turn over a new leaf. I like being free with all three of you."

"And you like touching us also, Josh. Can I have my dick back now? I have to pee." Justin said, Josh feeling the warmth in his hand, which was under the blanket.

Josh blushed, Lance laughing.

"You beat me to it, Joshy. I usually like to play with that gearshift in the morning."

Justin grinned, Josh laughing, releasing his friend's hardness, the man sitting up between the two.

"Be right back, guys." Justin said, the man climbing to the end of the bed, both men behind him taking in his firm naked butt.

Josh slapped one cheek, Justin turning his head back.

"Hurry back, Jus. I may warp your man." Josh smiled, Lance smiling.

Justin smiled, climbing out of bed, his shaft erect and swaying as he walked into the bathroom.

Lance moved, the man crawling on top of Josh as the man moved onto his back, their lips meeting.

"Warp away, Chasez." Lance said, breaking the kiss, his lips going to Josh's neck, the man's arms wrapping around him.

Josh moved, rolling Lance over, staring into his green pools, Josh now on top of him.

"Mornings are for you and your soulmate, my Lance. Justin may need some help in there bringing that beast down so he can pee."
Lance smiled, kissing Josh's nose.

"Yes, it's a real challenge sometimes bringing it down."

Josh laughed, smiling.

"Don't I know it. Get going. I'll go find my own beast of love."

Lance smiled, Josh moving, letting the man go, Lance climbing out of bed, his shaft at full mast as well, Josh smiling.

"What a monster! And it's all ours!"

Lance smiled, blowing him a kiss, the man heading for the bathroom, his perfectly smooth butt bouncing, Josh smiling and climbing out of bed.

His own shaft was at full girth, the man smiling and pulling on a pair of briefs, and then a pair of cargo shorts off the chair by the bed.

You two wow me, in all ways.

But Lucas consumes me.
He smiled, going in search of his man.


Josh stretched his arms walking into the kitchen, his arms wrapping around a t-shirt covered Adonis.

His lips kissed Lucas' neck, the young man flipping the pancakes in the frying pan before him.

He felt the warmth of his man's clothed body against him, Josh kissing his ear.

"Good morning, my husband. You and breakfast smell divine. But you left me without your beautiful warmth." Josh whispered, Lucas smiling and butting his ass back against his man's cargo short-covered center.

He felt the morning hardness and warmth still there.

"You were against their love. You were warm enough, husband. You should have followed them into the bathroom. Lance may have needed help bringing Justin's beast down." he smiled, Josh smiling with wonder, turning him around, kissing his lips, Lucas still holding a spatula.

"My heart burned for you more, my Lucky." Josh said, breaking the kiss, licking his man's lips, Lucas smiling.

"Keep that up and the last of the pancakes will burn also."
Josh smiled, releasing the love of his life, his eyes looking out the kitchen window onto the veranda, scanning the long table on it, it laden with food.

"Feeding an army?" he smiled, kissing Lucas' chin, the man smiling and turning around again, removing the last of the pancakes from the griddle pan, adding them to the large stack in the warming tray beside the stove.

Lucas shut the burner off, setting the pan into the water-filled sink, letting it soak.

"Feeding my family. They're all coming for breakfast in about a half hour." Lucas smiled, turning again and wrapping his arms around his man.

Josh smiled, kissing his lips again.

It was after nine, the day shining with sun.

"I wanted you for myself this morning, my love. It's still our honeymoon."

Lucas smiled, his hands resting on his man's firm butt.

"You have me for eternity, my husband. And last night you had more honeymoon than you could handle."
Josh smiled, kissing him again, Lucas feeling his love.

"Yes, you three were overpowering. Especially you, my love. You were on fire!" he said, Lucas rubbing his left butt cheek.

"You three burn a fire in my soul that may never be quenched. Be prepared for years of my intense love."

Josh smiled, kissing his man's nose.

"You said intense. I've never done it in a tent."

Lucas laughed, slapping his husband's firm ass.

"You can stand my pole up any time."

Josh smiled, kissing him on the lips again, the man looking around the kitchen.

"Your love everyone needs, my angel. I'll always understand that.  Family is family. I see how much their being around you makes you happy. We all love your love." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"You have its center, my love. You and the two boy toys back there." Lucas said, Josh pulling him close, their lips meeting again.

"We ain't your boy toys, bitches!"

Josh and Lucas smiled mid kiss, breaking it, looking towards the kitchen doorway, Justin having spoken, the man leaning against the doorframe, his body nude save for a pair of black boxer briefs.

His muscular arms were over his head , his hands against the top of the door frame, his hairy armpits on full view.

Lance's arms were around his waist, he wearing a white polo shirt and black checked Bermuda shorts.

"No, you ain't no boy, Timbersnake." Lucas smiled, Justin smiling at him, dropping his arms, wrapping them around his man.

"Got that right, Lucky." Lance smiled, kissing his man's lips, his hand rubbing Justin's brief covered center.

It now seemed greatly deflated, but stirring.

Lucas and Josh smiled, taking in the man's striking beauty.

"Someone dropped a quart." Josh smiled, Justin grinning.

"And you three put three quarts into me last night. Something had to give." he grinned, all four laughing.

Justin smiled, taking in the three visions of beauty around him, two men smiling at him with new lust.

"Like what you see, babes?" Justin smiled as Lance smiled at them as well.

"Been there, owned that." Lucas smiled, Justin winking at him.

"It's yours anytime, beautiful." Justin smiled, Lucas blowing him a kiss.

"Not right now, stud. I have to finish breakfast preparations. You and my Joshy here need a shower. All I can smell is Bass and Carver-Belmont off you both." Lucas smiled, Josh smiling at Justin.

"The aroma of our hearts, right Jus?" Josh smiled, Lance and Lucas smiling at him.

"Got that right, Joshy. And your three scents rule my world as well."

"Let me help you with breakfast, Luke. You boys play nice." Lance smiled, patting his man's smooth, tight abs.

Justin kissed his lips again, Josh walking up to them.

"Come on, Justy. My ass needs your wet hands." Josh smiled, Justin beaming, Lance kissing Josh's lips as he passed him, walking up to Lucas.

"Sure you boys don't want to join us? Just see what you're missing." Justin said, turning around and discarding his briefs, Lucas smiling at his firm smooth butt on display.

"Again, been there, done that. You can scrub all our fingerprints off that, Beamy."
Josh laughed, Justin grinning, he and Josh walking back towards the bedroom arm-in-arm, Josh's hand on Justin's firm naked backside.

Lance's arms went around Lucas' waist, their lips meeting.

Both felt the other's love, breaking their kiss, their tongues meeting with love.

"Morning, beautiful. Where did you disappear to earlier? It didn't take you three hours to do all this." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him, his hand on Lance's smooth polo shirt-covered chest.

"Just went for a walk along the beach and back to the pool, to see the sunrise."

Lance smiled, staring into his calm violet pools.

"I awoke at six and you were gone. I heard you come back around eight. That was a long walk." Lance said, Lucas' arms wrapping around him.

"The love coming from the cabanas on the path was intense. I had to stop and feel all of it. And then the pool's soothing waters calmed me. As did the love around me." Lucas said, Lance smiling at him.

"We'll have to dive into it later." Lance smiled, his hands on Lucas's firm muscular butt.

Lucas sighed, staring into his green emerald pools.

"The pool's gone, Lance. It was only here for the last few days' needs. It only appears now when I need it."

"Why did you need it this morning? Wasn't our love enough?" Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Your love will always be enough, my Lance. I just needed the calming warmth of my wet soul."

Lance nodded, staring at him.

"What's going on in that mind of yours, my love? Grayson told us last night of the meeting today. With you and the Belmonts." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Yes, with me and my family. My three loves will be there as well."

Lance smiled, kissing Lucas' lips again.

"I love you, Lucas. You are part of my family now."

"And I love my three husbands. Family indeed."

Lance smiled, staring into his violet pools.

"I'll miss the pool, Lucky. It was a beautiful place. It was where I found all the love I'll ever need." Lance smiled, Lucas patting his ass.

"Some bitch said he offered to help me with breakfast?"

Lance smiled, slapping Lucas' firm, muscular ass cheek.

"I'm your husband, not your bitch. I help because I love."

Lucas smiled, nodding his head.

"Don't I know it. I still feel the monster's love."

Lance smiled widely, helping Lucas finish the breakfast preparations.


Finn sighed, wiping his lips, Skyler patting his t-shirt covered stomach.

"Three plates, my love?" she said, Finn smiling and kissing her lips.

"Energy after last night, my love."

Lucas smiled, sitting in Josh's lap, the two surrounded by their families and friends.

Everyone was on the beach again, tables again set up, breakfast pretty much over.

Lance was smiling, walking around and filling cups with coffee and tea, Chris smiling up at him as he filled his coffee cup.

"You're still walking, Lance? Did your three men crash last night?" he smirked, Justin and Josh looking at him.

"Crash they did indeed, Chris. They all came in for a hard landing. And I was the pilot of love." Lucas said, not looking at him, sipping his coffee cup.

Laughter erupted around the beach, Chris blushing.

"Me and my big mouth." he said, Lucas smiling towards him.

"I knew Piney was happy about something. His rocket owns that big mouth."

Chris Pine burst into laughter, Chris blushing deeply, others continuing to laugh.

Piney smiled at Lucas, the young man smiling back.

"From one pilot to another." Lucas said, bowing to him, Piney smiling widely.

Piney kissed Chris' lips, the man smiling at him.

"Houston, we have no problems."

Chris laughed, kissing his man again.

Lucas smiled, seeing their showing love, Finn smiling at his friend.

"A wonderful breakfast, Luke. When and how did you find the time? You must be dog tired." he said, everyone smiling at the young man.

"I'll always have time to make my family happy." he smiled, everyone smiling more.

"You must be exhausted, Luke. You and your magic have been going nonstop for days." Emerson said, Lucas smiling at his grandfather.

"There is no exhaustion in love's magic, Grandfather. It energizes my soul."

Adam was staring at Lucas, the man smiling at him.

Pierce kissed Adam's cheek, the young doctor seated in Usher's lap.

"You okay, my love? You've been rather quiet this morning." Pierce said, Adam's blue eyes meeting his blue.

The man smiled, kissing Pierce's cheek.

"I'm fine, my love. My heart has its happiness." he smiled, Lucas watching the three.

Lucas felt a hand on his hairy knee, the young man smiling, staring into Justin's blue pools.

"Breakfast was great, Lucky. You feed our souls and stomachs." Justin said, Lance now at his side, his arm around him.

Lucas smiled, looking around.

"Right now I need to tidy up. Everyone hit the beach. Some kids want to swim." Lucas smiled, rising out of his man's lap, Josh smiling up at him.

"Need help, my love?" he said, another voice joining into the conversation.

"He has it, Josh. Come on ladies, let's hit the dishes. You, my son, are playing with your men and friends." Karen smiled, kissing Lucas' cheek, standing beside him now.

Lucas smiled, looking down at his men.

"Mommy says we can play, Beamy, Lancy and Timby!" Lucas grinned, Josh, Lance and Justin all laughing, Karen smirking.

"Sweet! I know what toy I want to play with!" Justin grinned, Lance rolling his eyes, Lucas laughing.

"Ugh! Something tells me we're going to see a grope fest!" Finn said, rolling his eyes as well.

Lucas smiled at him.

"Well, I always wanted to grope a Wookie." Colton voiced into the conversation, Lucas bursting into laughter, Finn looking at the younger man.

"Grope away, squirt. You may find heaven." Finn smiled, Colton grinning.

"I know I'll definitely squirt." Jonathan chimed in, Colton laughing, the young man smiling at his sister seated beside him, seeing her eyes on the blue water in front of them.

"Let's hit the water, Rosy. Fish need to swim." he smiled, rising from his man's lap, Rosa Sharon beaming, leaping out of her chair, her arms going around Lucas' waist.

"Come on, Dad! I want to swim with you, too!" she said, taking Lucas' hand, pulling him towards the veranda, the young man smiling and following her into Colton's cottage to change.

Josh, Lance and Justin smiled, Tristan smiling at all three.

"She loves the boy. He really does act like her father.  Does that make me her grandfather?" he said, then laughed, Josh smiling at him.

"You'll be granddad to all our kids, Dad." he said, Tristan staring at him with surprise.
"You. . .you're going to have children, Josh?" Savannah said with surprise as well, Josh smiling at her.

"Yes, we hope to, Mom. Lucas has already told me our love will be too large not to share with our own future children. I think he's looking into the future again. To have a child with him would fill my heart with happiness." Josh smiled, Savannah smiling at him, patting his hand, she seated beside him.

"You and Lucas would make wonderful adoptive fathers." she said, Josh smiling, looking at Justin and Lance.

"We all shall. Julian and Diana need playmates." Justin smiled, Finn and Skyler smiling at him, Lance rolling his eyes again, but smiling.

"I'm not losing my figure to any of your baby boys, beautiful."

Justin laughed, showing his pouty face.

"Okay, maybe one. A little Justin to make us both happy."

Justin beamed, rising from his seat, his shirt off in moments.

"Let's swim, my love. I know we'll feel Lucky's love in its wetness shortly."
Lance smiled, joining his man, Josh as well, the three heading for the cottage to change as well.

Others rose as well, heading to their cabanas for their swimwear.


After a wonderful couple of hours of swimming, laughing and sunbathing, everyone joined again in front of the cottage, the mothers having prepared a light, delicious late lunch.

They all dined happily, the wet exercise fueling their appetites.

Diana and Julian sat in their parents' laps, the two feeding from their mother's breast, Finn taking each as they traded for lunch.

Lucas smiled at the couple, seeing their parental happiness.

He looked around, sensing several sets of eyes having been on him all morning and now through lunch.

A voice broke the happy conversation after lunch.

"What time do you want to meet, Lucas?" Grayson said, Gabriel's arm around his back, the two seated together.

The young man smiled, wiping his lips after finishing the last spoonful of mushroom salad off his plate.

"I feel your guarded uncertainty, Uncle Gray." Lucas said, Grayson staring at him.

"We all love you, Lucas. We await any decisions you wish to reveal." Emerson said, Lucas smiling at his grandfather.

"I will only make decisions with my own heart and all of yours." he said, others looking at him.

He smiled around at everyone, sipping at his lemonade drink.

"I've asked my immediate family for a meeting of reality after lunch. I've voiced my requests to all those I wish to be there. For everyone else, please enjoy the island's happiness. The pool has unfortunately disappeared now. It has receded into the memories of our moments of love. It will forever be in your hearts." Lucas smiled, everyone smiling at him, their eyes glancing towards the hill at the end of the beach.

"It was a beautiful spot, Luke. It was where I found my happiness." Adam said, Usher's and Pierce's hands in his, smiling at him, Adam staring at Lucas.

The young man smiled, nodding his head.

"Yes, where we all found our happiness. It will return one day, trust in my love on that. And it will return with a surprise." Lucas said, Josh looking into his sparkling violet pools, seeing a calm accepting smile of love on Lucas' face.

Everyone smiled, Adam staring at him.

Josh kissed his man's lips.

"We'll tidy up, Lucas. You go get ready for your family." Karen smiled, Lucas smiling at her.

"Thanks, Mom."
She smiled, Roy kissing her cheek.

"We'll keep busy while you attend to family business, Luke." he winked, Josh laughing.

Karen smiled at her husband.

"Let's get this cleaned quick, ladies. My man wants to go for a walk." she smiled, Roy winking at her, Lucas smiling and rising from his seat.

Josh rose as well, Lucas kissing his cheek, the two walking into the cottage, Justin and Lance walking behind them.

"You feel their love. It's so right there, in the open and intense." Harry said, Alain kissing his lips.

"Yes, it's almost as intense and open as ours." he smiled, Harry smiling and snuggling against him.

"Let's get out of these wet suits, my love." Harry said, Alain grinning at him.

"No hanky panky, horn dogs. The meeting's in an hour." Finn grinned, Alain smiling at him.

"The passion is quick when the need is great. I'll show you sometime, Finny." the black man said, blowing Finn a kiss, Finn laughing and blowing him a kiss back.

Baja laughed, he and his cousin and Harry heading for their cabana.

Everyone else smiled, people rising, going to change.

Inside the cottage, Lucas was wrapped in two arms, lips on his neck, the man standing naked in his bedroom.

He felt the largeness poking against his ass, Lance's lips on his neck, his naked body behind Lucas.

"We haven't time, my loves. Oh man!" Lucas softly moaned, feeling the lips on his left nipple. Josh's teeth tugging on it, his fingers caressing the right one.

He felt the lips around his rising shaft, Justin's talented tongue bring the beast to its awakening state.

"There's always time for your beauty, Lucky." Lance said, his tongue burying into Lucas' ear, the young man shuddering.

He felt the monster rubbing against his ass crack, its head now going within the warm crevice of Lucas' smooth cheeks.

"Oh, damn, my husbands! Screw everyone! I need your love within me, Lance! Now!"

Lance smiled, centering his shaft, entering Lucas' warm insides.

Lucas gasped, feeling the mouth on his shaft pull off, another mouth swallowing all of him, the man feeing his Josh's talented desires.

His nipples felt wet, a coolness blowing across then, then fingers rubbing both.

He opened his violet eyes, staring into two blue pools of love.

"I need my own love, my Lucas." Justin said, Lucas smiling, their lips meeting for a moment, the two tongue battling for a minute, then Justin breaking the kiss, the man moving.

Lance suddenly moaned, feeling a hardness sink into his own center, his own shaft sinking deeper into the younger man in front of him, Lucas' center sinking deeper into Josh's throat.

The four became lost in their passion, love filling their souls and bodies.

They were joined as one, the love consuming them.


Lucas' family and close friends were all relaxing in the cool living room of the main cottage, all the windows opened in the shady cottage.

Grayson checked his pocket watch, seeing it was one fifty-one, closing it, his fingers gently tapping on the armrest of the couch he sat on, Gabriel at his side.

"I think it's finally quieted down." Colton said across from them, Jonathan blushing and smiling at his boyfriend, the two seated together on a couch with Finn and Skyler.

"Timberlake must have reached the end of his rope, or someone's else's." Finn smiled, Jonathan rolling his eyes, Finn then laughing.

They'd all entered the cottage about half an hour earlier, finding the living room neat, clean and ready.

A coffee pot with mugs and a pitcher of ice water sat on a tray on the coffee table, everyone sitting down and waiting for the four newlyweds.

They'd all heard the sounds coming from the bedroom down the hallway, everyone looking at one another, blushing but remaining silent.

"Should we come back later?" Gabriel had said, Grayson kissing his cheek.

"Lucas said two. He's always on time. I've never known the boy to be late. We're just a little early." the lawyer said, the man's words silenced by a young man walking into the room from the hallway, all eyes on him.

Lucas smiled at everyone, his eyes going around the large living room, meeting everyone's eyes.

His grandparents and parents, as well as his stepparents and Trish and Andrew were present.

Harry, Rosa Sharon and Alain, along with Harry's parents were there, Finn and Skyler as well.

Grayson and Gabriel were seated together; Colton and Jonathan, as well as Adam, Usher and Pierce staring at the young man.

Nick, Gideon and Gio rounded out the group as well as Aaron and Craig.

The two young men were surprised that Lucas had invited them, Nick smiling at his brother seated beside him.

He saw the worship in Aaron's blue pools for the young amazing man that was now their friend.

Lucas walked towards everyone, a few beginning to rise, Lucas' hand stopping them.

"Relax, my family. We'll begin shortly." he smiled, leaning down and filling a glass with ice water, Finn staring at him, the young man taking a sip, setting it on a ledge behind the couch Finn sat on.

"We didn't mean to be early, Luke." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"No worries, my friend. My men will be out momentarily. They don't recover as fast as myself. Love can be consuming." Lucas smiled, the young man now wearing a black silk polo shirt and khaki cargo shorts, sandals on his feet.

The shirt showed off his muscular physique, the red stone hanging from his neck, its top visible in the open collar's center.

Adam stared at it, then him, Lucas eyes now a soft green.

"Your magic's on, Lucas." Tristan said, Lucas smiling at his father.

"My family is drenched in magic, Dad. I'll never hide that or my love from them." Lucas smiled, his grandparents smiling at him.

Lucas' eyes met his father's green, Tristan staring at him.

"I see a lot of my father in your now green eyes, Lucas." he said, Lucas nodding his head.

"It mirrors your own eyes, Dad. As does his love."

Tristan smiled at his father, Savannah smiling at her son.

Josh, Justin and Lance all walked into the living room, Lucas smiling at all three, each kissing him on the lips, smiling at everyone seated.

"Sorry we're late. Justin takes forever to get ready." Josh smiled, staring at his friend who wore a denim short sleeved shirt and faded denim shorts, Justin giving him a discreet one finger salute and a smile.

"He's not the one we had to pry from the mirror, Mr. Television." Lance smiled, wearing a blue polo shirt and white cargo shorts.

Lucas smiled, his arm around his man, kissing his lips again.

"Perfection is well worth the wait for all my men's beauty. Sit down, my loves." he smiled, Josh smiling at him, the three men joining Harry and Alain on a couch.

Lucas smiled, looking around at everyone, everyone having his attention.

Aaron rose from his seat, Craig staring up at him, then at Lucas.

"Why are Craig and me here, Luke? We're not your family, only friends. I know Nick is here because Gideon is family." Aaron said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Come here, Aaron." Lucas said, Aaron looking at Craig, the young man nodding at him.

Aaron walked up to Lucas, the young man's hand going to his slim shoulder, Lucas smiling at him.

"Why are Adam, Usher and Pierce here, Aaron?" he said, the young man looking at the threesome.

"For the same reason you are, Aaron and Craig. The five of you are now my brothers. You are now in the inner circle of my love, as I stated before." Lucas smiled, the young man staring at him with love and friendship.

"Craig and I are so honored by that, Luke." he said, Lucas seeing the adoration in his blue pools, the same look Nick had seen.

Lucas smiled, hugging the young man, his hand slapping his ass, the young man jumping in his arms.

"That's the last time you'll voice doubt, my brother. I love you as I love Finn and Andrew. As I now love Adam, Pierce and Usher. As I love your brother Nickolas, Gideon and Gio. So lose the idolization. I'm just me, the Luke who wants to be your brother."

Aaron smiled, nodding his head.

"Great. I don't think my ass could take your abuse anyway." he smiled, Finn laughing.

"Justin could voice a different opinion on that." Finn laughed, Alain joining him, Justin blushing, Lance smiling at Finn, kissing Justin's cheek.

"So can I, Finny." Lance smiled, Lucas smiling at him, his eyes going back to Aaron, then around at all his male friends.

"Friendship is our desires, my friends. It stokes my heart more than any of your skinny white—or black—booties could."

Everyone smiled, all Lucas' friends nodding their heads, Alain grinning.

Lucas smiled again, looking around at everyone, Aaron returning to Craig's opening arms.

"You are my family, all of you. In this room is my life. Those I love as brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and grandparents. My life is whole. Yesterday's reality sealed my life together with love, magic and destiny. I have all I need to walk the voyage on the path ahead." he said, everyone looking at him with tenderness and love.

"I feel your love, everyone. My life is whole."

Everyone smiled, Savannah rising from her seat, walking up to her son, Lucas smiling as she put her arms around him, kissing his cheek.

"We all love you, Lucas. We're happy that you're happy."
"I am happy, Mom. I have all your love. And I have the greater love of my soulmates. I am healed in love and life. And I am now focused. Voyages across realities and magic have sealed me to my destiny." he said, his green pools looking towards Grayson, the lawyer staring at him.

"Sit, mother of my existence, mother of my heart." Lucas smiled, Savannah tearfully smiling at him.

She returned to her husband's arms, Tristan smiling at his son.

Lucas folded his hands, everyone staring at him.

The young man sighed, everyone seeing a focused look showing in his now green pools.

"Walk out of the shadows, Grandfather. I felt your love at the pool all weekend." he said, everyone's eyes turning to where Lucas was looking, a figure walking out of the hallway.

Emerson stared at his father, Joshua Belmont standing before everyone.


"Your magic has increased, Lucas. I thought I had hidden myself very well." he said, Lucas smiling at him with love.

Aaron and Craig were staring at the man with shock and confusion, Nick quietly whispering and clueing them in to the man's identity, both of their blue pools widening, both remaining silent.

"I knew the last few days of my gathering love would draw you here again, Grandfather. I will always feel your love, hidden or not." Lucas said.

The man nodded, everyone staring at his well-worn uniform, the man in full military regalia.

"Why have you summoned all of us here today, Lucas?" he said, the young man looking at him with soft surprise.

"I didn't summon you, Grandfather."

"I did." someone said, Lucas looking behind him, the young man staring into two blue pools.

"Interesting." he said.

Rosa Sharon smiled, rising from her seat, walking up to Joshua, smiling up at him.

"You came, Joshua." she smiled, Joshua looking down into her blue pools.

"I felt your need within the magic, little angel." he said, Lucas staring at her, the girl turning and looking into his green pools.

"All our family is here now, Dad. You can begin." she smiled, returning to her brother's couch, Colton looking down at her as she climbed into his lap, snuggling against his chest.

Lucas stared at her for a moment, then turned back to his great-grandfather.

"Magic surrounds me. Hello, Grandfather. Your family loves you." Lucas smiled, Joshua staring at his family.

"The day finds my family well. I see the love and happiness shining on all their faces." Joshua said; Emerson, Tristan and Grayson smiling at him.

Lucas smiled, nodding.

"I feel the greater love along the beach. Your love has united many, Lucas."

"Yes, Grandfather. We have all been awash in my son's love." Tristan said, Lucas smiling at his father.

"His love never ends, my grandson." Joshua said, Lucas staring at him.

"Indeed. I summoned everyone here to finalize the path, Grandfather. It seems you have been guided onto it. I now know where I must walk. Other paths have shown that."

Grayson rose from his seat, walking up to his father, the two men embracing, their eyes meeting when they broke their embrace.

"He. . .he has crossed the void, Father. I believe he's ventured into her past." Grayson said, his father's green pools meeting Lucas' green.

"Yes, Grandfather. I have walked all pasts." Lucas said, the young man staring at both men.

"That. . .that is impossible, Lucas! Not even I can venture there!" Joshua said with wonder, Lucas staring at him.

"I can, Grandfather. For I have the right."

Grayson looked at his father, then at Lucas.

"She would never give you that right, Lucas. How is this possible?" Grayson said, Emerson looking at his father and brother, the man rising from his seat.

"What's going on, Gray? Father?" the man said, both staring into his green pools, Tristan now standing at his father's side.

"I will tell you, my family. Please sit down again, everyone. You may join your sons, Grandfather Joshua." Lucas said, the four men staring at him, Grayson and Joshua moving, walking to the couch, Tristan and Emerson both hugging Joshua, the four then sitting down.

Lucas' eyes met Josh's, the man rising from his seat and going to his side, his arm going around him, kissing his lips.

"Thank you, my love. I feel your love and warmth. The truth of that will steel my soul. I love you. Return to our soulmates' love." he said, Josh kissing his lips again and returning to Justin and Lance, both men putting their arm around him, all three smiling with love at Lucas.

Lucas turned from them, staring at his family, the young man folding his hands again in front of him, all eyes on him.

"I would venture through the Void, through lives past or future, and through heaven and earth or hell, to save my family from its destiny. In a room of darkness, I saw the truth. And from that I found the true path."
"How can you be sure it's the truth path, Lucas?" Grayson said, his blue eyes meeting Lucas' green.

"Because of the key given me, Grayson. I have been in the Treasure Room."

Grayson looked shocked, his Gabriel's arms going around him, the man showing worry in his eyes.

"What's wrong, Gray?" he said, Grayson staring at Lucas.

"You can't have, Lucas! She. . .it. . .it would never allow it!" Grayson said, Lucas staring at him.

"It doesn't know I was there, Grayson. No one knows. She, she now knows." Lucas said, Emerson's eyes going between the two.

"What treasure room? What are you speaking of? The hidden room at Kurucu's Haven? There are no treasures there anymore, Lucas." he said, Lucas staring at his grandfather.

"No, Grandfather. Not that room, but I have been there as well. The treasures gone from that room—and given to mewere originally from another room." Lucas said, Emerson staring at the red stone around Lucas' neck with awed wonder.

"I don't understand, Lucas? You've been in that room?" he said, Lucas smiling at him with love.

"Let me shatter your confusion, Grandfather." Lucas said, the young man pulling something out of his shorts pocket, all eyes on the silver key laying in his hand.

Joshua rose from his seat, staring at the key.

"You. . .you have the silver key? How is that possible?" he said, Emerson's hand going to his father's shoulder, at his side now.

"It was in the room with the stone and book, Father. The triad of their magic was given to Lucas." Emerson said, staring at his father, Joshua looking confused.

"I don't understand. I knew Father left the book and stone, but the key? Why would he do that?" Joshua said, Lucas staring at him.

"He didn't, Grandfather. Another left the key there, in Kurucu's Haven's hidden room." Lucas said, Joshua staring at him.

"No other knew of its existence, save my father and my forefathers." Joshua said.

"You are wrong, Grandfather. Another knew. Your father gave it to her, she in turn giving it to her son, who in turn slipped it into the room; even his brother not knowing it was his doing."

Emerson turned, staring at Grayson, Joshua showing shock on his face.

"You. . .you put it in the room under the domed glass? How. . .how did Father give it to her? He never met her!" Joshua said, Grayson rising to his feet, staring at his father and brother.

"Yes, Father. On her request, I and your father would always honor our duty."

Joshua looked surprised.

"She died when you were an infant, Grayson. You can't have known her either." Joshua said.

Lucas's eyes met Grayson's blue pools.

"She isn't dead, Grandfather. Almira Carlisle still walks around us."


Joshua stared at his young great-grandson, Lucas staring at him with love.

"Twice now you have voiced that truth, Lucas. I still will not believe it."

"I love you, Grandfather. I would never do anything to hurt your heart. I know of your love for her. It mirrors in your love for your sons." Lucas said, Joshua staring at his sons.

"Grayson is a creation of her love. Both of my sons are of mine. I love them equally." Joshua said, both men staring at their father with love.

Lucas stared at Grayson, the young man sighing.

"Almira Carlisleas you knew herdid pass into the light, but for only a moment. It was a re-evolving of her soul so to speak."

"What do you mean, Luke?" Colton said, Lucas looking at the young man.

"Magic, my friend. Almira Carlisle was a being of immense magic. Or should I say is a being of immense magic. It took me forever to sense her in the background still."

"The Watcher, Luke?" Finn said, Lucas staring at his friend.

"One of them, Finn."

"One of them? You mean there's more than one?" Tristan said, looking at his son.

"Yes, Father. There is the being that Rosa Sharon's met, and the being that you all saw at Kurucu's Haven twice."

"Twice, Luke? I only remember him from the stairs. You were in his arms." Emerson said, Lucas staring at him.

"No, Grandfather. You met him a few days earlier. When the monster of Kurucu's Haven attacked me in the games room, the night Lewis regained his eyesight." Lucas said, everyone staring at him with surprise.

"The image that attacked the monster that was attacking you!" Finn said, Lucas nodding.

"Yes, everyone. The man or being that resembled myself and my father. The being of the white light."

"So you're saying there's two of them? Who or what are they?" Gabriel said, Lucas looking at him.

"The one that Rosa Sharon has met is the being that once was Almira Carlisle. That once was Priscilla Carlisle, the originator of the Brotherhood so many centuries ago. And who I believe was other beings of magic and love within my family's past. That being has evolved down through my lineage. Through all of our lineages."

Joshua stared at Lucas.

"She was a being of magic, Lucas. I shall admit to that. But she was of flesh and scent. I held her in my arms. I. . .I loved her." Joshua said, Lucas smiling at him with love.

"I know, Grandfather. Your son Grayson knows that. As does Grandfather. Her love emanates off you to them. They have felt her love through you. And Grayson has felt it even more in the magic, and in the visions."

All eyes turned to the lawyer, Grayson staring at Lucas only.

"How. . .how could you have. . .?"

"My magic is the true magic, Uncle Gray." Lucas said, the man staring at him.

"Visions? What do you mean, Lucas? What's he talking of Gray?" Emerson said, Grayson's blue eyes staring at his brother and friend.

"You and Father—and Tristan and Lucas—are not the only ones who have had the visions of the past, my brother." Grayson said, Joshua staring at his son.

"The past? You have the visions of the past?  And of the pool?" he said, Lucas looking at his great-grandfather, Grayson nodding.

"Yes, Father. Those visions of the past. And I had been to the pool in my dreams." he said, Josh looking at his husband.

"The dreams are a key in some way, Lucas." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Very good, my love. A key of necessity." he said, Joshua's hand going to his great-grandson's shoulder.

"Key, Lucas? Key to what?" he said, Lucas sighing, looking into his green pools.

"The key to the true path for me, Grandfather Joshua." Lucas said, his green pools looking at Grayson, then back at his great-grandfather.

"And the key to what you've lost, Grandfather Joshua." Lucas said, Joshua staring at him.

"My soul?"

Lucas smiled at him, leaning forward and kissing his cheek.

"You have your soul, Grandfather. We all feel its love." Lucas said, his green pools moving to Grayson's blue.

"When did you first have the visions, Grayson? And you, Grandfather?" Lucas said, the two brothers looking at each other.

"After Father's passing, Lucas." Emerson said, Grayson nodding, both looking at their father, Lucas' green pools looking at him as well.

"And you, Grandfather Joshua?" he said, Joshua's green pools meeting his.

"After my own father's passing, Lucas. The first night after he was entombed. After he went on to the last path of the Trinity."

Lucas nodded, looking at all four of his brethren.

"A coincidence of too close a clarity. Too convenient." he said, his eyes going around the room.

"It wasand still isthe passing of the Trinity. I believe, when the Guardian ascends to his final form he leaves behind his memories in the other two. In his son and grandson."

Tristan and Emerson stared at Joshua, the man staring at both men.

"We dreamed of Lincoln, of your memories." Emerson said, Joshua lowering his eyes.

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

"But what about you, Lucas? What you just said doesn't apply to you. You've dreamed of the American past but you're not part of the Trinity." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"All of my family's pasts apply to me, my love. I have the true magic." he said, Grayson walking up to him, Lucas' eyes meeting his blue.

"The magic of the stone? The magic of destiny?"

His brethren staring at him, Lucas sighing again.

"No, Uncle Gray. The magic of the stone is of the same magic as flows through all of your beings. The magic of longevity, destiny and fate. The magic of the Trinity and of the Belmont family beginning with Alsarius." Lucas said, Josh kissing his cheek.

"You're being mysterious again, my love. Are you saying the magic deep within your soul is another magic?"

Lucas sighed again, looking at his relations.

"The magic within me, I believe, is the real reason I am here."

Tristan walked up to his son, his hand going to his shoulder, Savannah staring at both of them.

"You are here because your mother and I created you under love, Lucas. You are the combination of our love. You are our love personified."

Lucas smiled, kissing his father's cheek.

"I am of both of you. Your love is within me. But the magic came from something else."

Tristan stared at his son.

"From what, Lucas? From something else that connected with you since your birth?"

Lucas looked around at everyone, his eyes settling on Grayson's blue staring pools.

"The magic deep within methe magic that now has fused with the magic of destinyis older than time itself. Even the magic Alsarius Belgras encountered way down in that Egyptian tomb doesn't know of its existence. And I believe I have one person to thank for that." he said, Joshua staring at him.

"Our ancestor Alsarius?" Joshua said, Lucas looking at him.

"No, Grandfather. Someone the past has forgotten. One's life is so brief upon this earth. To give all is to have all. And some hearts hold onto dreams that cannot be realized." Lucas said, the young man moving, walking over to the large picture window, staring out across the beach to the water in front of him.

Josh moved again, walking up to his man, his arm going around him.

"Who have we forgotten, Lucky?"

Lucas turned, staring into his blue eyes.

"That truth is for another time, my love. Right now the path focuses, and I am in charge of all the destiny ahead. But I've done something that perhaps wasn't written in the destiny forged. Atonement lays ahead for me perhaps. But for my family's love and life I will face anything." Lucas said, his now violet pools looking at his family, all four men of the Belmont heritage showing tears in their eyes.

Lucas moved, as did they, the five joining in the center of the room, Joshua's hand going to the young man's shoulder.

"I never wanted any risk for any of you, Lucas. I gave over to destiny, as did my son, as has my grandson. We accept the atonement we are forced to walk."

"That's just it, Grandfather Joshua. You three are on a path of someoneor somethingelse's contrived reality. It's time that magic, or person, or monster was called to reckoning for what it's done. No one controls my family."

The three Belmont men were in tears, hearing so much love, courage and truth in the young man's voice.

"Even you of the greatest love and magic cannot alter its destiny, Lucas." Emerson said, his father's hand going to his shoulder, Emerson's going to Tristan's.

"That's just it, Grandfather. I have already altered its destiny."

The three men looked at each other.

"What do you mean, Lucas?" Tristan said.

"You have all said it, in different ways, in the same expressions of surprise and wonder. I was never supposed to exist. I am not part of the Trinity. I am not a real Belmont of destined magic and fate." he said, Josh's arm going around him again.

"You are real, Lucas. We all know that." he said, Lucas smiling and kissing his man's cheek.

"I know that, Josh. As do all of you. I am real, I am alive, I am of magic, I am of love, and I am something more."

Emerson's hand went to his grandson's shoulder, staring into his now violet pools, their centers changing to the emerald green hue again.

"What else can you be but love and magic, Lucas? You are the heart of our family, even if you didn't exist in destiny."

Lucas nodded, looking into three sets of green love and one set of blue, the Belmont men showing their love for him.

"Let's find the answer to that question, Grandfather. What do you say, lost one?"

Lucas' body turned, the young man staring at someone who had walked into the cottage, another man standing behind him, their blue pools staring at Lucas.

The person smiled, walking up to the young man, everyone staring at the two men.

"You are very wise, Lucas. He chose well." the man said, Lucas nodding

Lucas smiled, the young man staring at the two new visitors.

"I am honored to feel your real soul, faithful follower of him, walker of life's path. You have been hidden for so long."

Everyone exchanged glances, all eyes on the man standing in front of Lucas, Emerson rising from his seat.

Myles Hampton smiled, leaning forward and kissing Lucas' cheek.

Abraham stood behind him, his blue eyes on his soulmate.

 "You know who I am, don't you?" Myles softly said, Lucas smiling, kissing his cheek in return.

"Yes, lost devoted captain. No tomb could ever hold your courage and devotion. Welcome back to life, Haras."


End of Chapter 172


Ok, what the hell?

Myles is a Watcher?

Horace's son?


And who the hell is Haras?

Author's note: For that answer you only have to remember the past. . .Chapter 47, to be exact.

No tomb could hold him.

Or something else.


A family gathers, the past unfolds.

And a new voice of magic reveals itself.

I'll leave it at that.


Hugs, Angel.
