Chapter 184


Lucas' eyes slowly opened, the young man feeling the warmth against his face, and the brightness shining into his eyes.

He groaned softly, turning his body, feeling the warmth wrapped around him.

He stared into a sleeping face, a handsome one at that.

He smiled, taking in Justin's sleeping beauty.

Waking against a god.

Life is good.
Lucas smiled, feeling the reality of Justin's searching, sleeping need.

His right hand was wrapped around Lucas' center, the man feeling his warm fingers from his other hand buried in the cleft of his ass cheeks.

Needful in sleep as in life, our slut.

You're trying to own me in your dreams.

Lucas smiled, hearing someone else mumbling, an arm going around Justin's smooth chest.

He saw a blond mop in the crook of Justin's neck, Lance's naked body spooned against his husband's.

Lucas looked to his other side, seeing the rest of the bed empty.

He smiled, the young man slowly trying to unravel himself from Justin's possessive embrace.

The man murmured, pulling Lucas closer, the young man smiling and kissing his nose.

"Turn to your right, my love. Lancy needs your warmth." Lucas softly said, Justin moving his body back, Lucas moving quickly, escaping his arms, Justin's body moving to its right, his arms now pulling Lance into his embrace.

Lucas smiled, seeing the smile now showing on Lance's face, his head against Justin's chest now.

He smiled again, seeing the monster claimed by Justin's dreaming needs, one hand wrapped around it.

"Going for the good stuff, Timberlake. Lucky you. Your love will awaken him soon enough, and then he'll show you even more love." Lucas softly said, pulling the blankets over both men, rising from the bed himself.

He pulled on his robe, his naked smooth form disappearing under it, the young man tying the sash.

He quietly walked into the bathroom, relieving himself.

A few minutes later he walked out of it, freshly brushed and his breath feeling fresh.

He smiled at the bed, the two in its center unmoved.

He quickly dressed in shorts and a t-shirt and quietly walked out of the bedroom, closing the door behind him.

He crossed the hall, the hallway silent and empty.

He walked into the nursery, smiling and seeing his two treasures sound asleep in their crib, the young man leaning down and kissing each on the forehead, both softly smiling in their sleep.

He smelled the soft odor of milk, the young man smiling.

"Well, Dad's fed you this morning, and sung you back into dreamland." he smiled, covering his little treasures with their blanket, the young man quietly walking out of the room.

Lucas walked downstairs, finding the living room silent as well, the young man walking into the kitchen.

He saw the coffeemaker filled, a soft steam coming off its top.

He walked over to it, filling a cup for himself, his eyes looking out through the patio doors.

He smiled, seeing a form seated by the pool.

He quickly filled another cup, lacing both with cream and sugar.

He walked over to the doors, walking out into the soft, cool morning's sunshine.

A head raised from a lounge chair at the pool's edge, a large smile greeting Lucas' own, the young man walking across the patio and down its steps over to the pool's edge, smiling down into two blue pools.

"Good morning, my love, my husband and my heart." Lucas said, leaning down and kissing his man's lips, Josh purring with happiness.

Lucas broke the kiss, rising to his feet again, seeing the papers strewn across the chair between Josh's muscular legs, the man wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

"Mm, babe. I love your morning sugar." Josh smiled, Lucas smiling and sitting down beside him in the next chair, their bodies close together.

"And I added cream. You're up early, my love." Lucas smiled, handing Josh one of the coffee cups, Josh smiling at him and taking it.

"Been up for an hour or so. Started the coffee, as you know." he smiled, Lucas kissing his lips again.

"More than a hour, babe. The kids are fed and sung into dreamland again." he smiled, Josh smiling.

"They were awake when I walked into their room. I carried them down here and fed them. They both fell asleep while I sang Brahm's Lullaby. You always know all." Josh smiled, Lucas smiling at him, kissing his lips again.

"I felt your love in their smiles. Dad will always look after his angels." he smiled, Josh smiling at him.

Lucas' eyes went to the papers again, Josh's eyes meeting his.

"My music has you engrossed, babe. How goes your songs?" Lucas said, snuggling more into his man.

"Justin and I have been working on them when we can. The album's been finalized, recorded and organized. I think we might be ready. Now just to decide when to release it." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him.

"My man's ready to wow the world with his beautiful voice." he smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"I've decided I'm going to wait for a while, Luke. My life's on a different path now." he said,  Lucas staring at him.

"And what path is that, my love?" he said, Josh staring at him.

"I'm married now, Luke. I have a family. I have to focus on the life I now have. You five are my world now. You need me." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him.

"And your world loves you, Joshua. But music is a part of that world as well. It's a part of all of our world."
"My family needs me more than my fans do, Luke. I'm staying home and looking after all of you." Josh said, Lucas feeling the emotion in his words.

Lucas sat his coffee cup down on the table beside his chair, the young man rising from his chair, Josh looking up at him as the young man stared out at the calm pool.

"I'm quitting Orion, Josh. It's me that is staying home."

Josh rose from his seat, his arms going around his man, turning him around to face him.

"No way, Luke! You can't do that to them! To Finn, Sky or Trish! Or to yourself! I know the depth of what music means to you in your soul! You'd be lost without it!" Josh said, Lucas staring into his blue pools of love.

"You better wipe this mirror in front of you, my love. Your tears of truth are wetting it." Lucas said, Josh staring at him with soft surprise.

"You just voiced your own truth in your own words, my Joshua. My soul's needs are your own." Lucas said, Josh's eyes lowering.

"You see right into my soul, my love." Josh said, Lucas kissing his forehead.

"Talk to me, my love."

Josh raised his head, Lucas seeing the tears in his blue pools.

"I miss music so much, Luke. The singing, the noise, the applause, the happiness it always gave me." he said, Lucas smiling, pulling him close.

"I know, my love. I feel your soul, remember?"

Josh nodded, his head going against his chest, Lucas holding him close.

His eyes went towards the patio, the young man smiling.

"Life is about having your dreams, Josh. About living out your dreams. The reality of the world and its responsibilities shouldn't change your dreams. And you've forgotten one thing."
Josh raised his head, staring into his man's violet pools.

"You have us, my love. Your three of love. We're here for you and for each other. And more importantly for our children.  There are three other men here who will look after your loves, big and small. So that your dreams do come true. As ours will. We are all here for each other. To support, to lean on, and to aid. It's called being a family."

"Lucas is right."

Josh's head turned, staring at Lance and Justin, both men standing on the patio steps, Justin having spoken.

Lucas had seen both men walk out of the house.

The two men moved, walking up to the other two men.

"How much of that did you hear?" Josh asked, Justin smiling and kissing his lips.

"All of it, our Josh. And Lucas is right. We all have dreams, Josh. You three have made mine come true already. And we three are here for you to make yours come true. I love your voice, Josh. Always have. There's no way that you're not doing this album. The world needs to hear your remembered voice again. Let us three take care of your family. You focus on your dreams." Justin said, the man smiling at Justin.

"Jus is right, Joshy. As is Luke. We love you. Your dreams are important to us. Because they make you happy. We'd never deny you them or ourselves. We love you." Lance said, Josh tearing up.

"I do want to sing again. Your songs are so beautiful, Lucky. I need to do this." Josh said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Then do it. We'll all look after each other, this home and our lives. I want my man to shine in the heavens." Lucas smiled, Justin smiling as well.

"Let's oil him up to make him shine. He was nearly heaven last night." he smiled, Josh laughing.

"The only god here last night was our angel Lucky." he said, Lucas smiling, kissing his lips.

The two broke their kiss, Lucas kissing Lance then Justin on the lips.

"Good morning, my babes. I assumed you'd sleep for a while." Lucas smiled, Josh smiling as well at the other two men wearing robes.

"The loss of your love and warmth woke us both. That and my man's roaming fingers." Lance smiled, Lucas laughing.

"Yes, they woke me as well. His grip of steel and his poking mini hardons."

Justin laughed, grinning.

"I go to the love." he said, Lance kissing his lips.

"And I gave you my love." he grinned, Justin beaming.

Josh smiled, kissing both men, their morning love exchanged.

"Feeling alright now, Joshy?" Justin said, Josh smiling at him, nodding.

"Yes, Jus. I'm going ahead with the album. Thank you for giving me a chance with your company."
Justin smiled, his hand going to his shoulder.

"I see talent for what it is. And you my friend are beyond talented." he smiled, Josh smiling more.

"Don't we know it." Lance said, licking his lips.

All four laughed, smiling at each other.

Josh's eyes met Lucas' violet pools.

"So, you never were gonna quit Orion, were you, my love?" Josh said.

"No, my love. Music is my soul as it is yours." Lucas said, Josh smiling at him.

"Coffee's ready, guys. How about we make everyone breakfast? It's our last day with our families. Back to normal home life again." Lucas smiled, all four smiling.

"Indeed. Me and my three wives. Or is that bitches?" Justin grinned, the other three rolling their eyes, Lucas smirking, his eyes meeting Lance's smiling face.

"We'll start breakfast, Luke. You go get out of that wet robe, Jus." Lance said, Justin's eyes meeting his.

Justin looked confused, his eyes widening when Lucas rushed forward, his arms going around him, his body lifting, Justin's scream of surprise cut off by the water suddenly filling his mouth.

Lance and Josh laughed, Justin coming up from the bottom of the pool, his head breaking the surface, Lucas smiling at him from the pool's edge.

"This wife ain't no bitch." he smiled, Josh and Lance's lips meeting his cheeks.

"Got that right. He's our master." Lance smiled, Justin pouting in the water, the man swimming towards the ladder, pulling himself up out of the water, his robe now indeed soaking wet.

Lucas smiled, taking in the toned muscular body under it.

"I guess I deserved that." Justin said, lowering his eyes, Lucas smiling at Josh and Lance.

"You boys start breakfast. I'm going to lick a wet angel dry." he smiled, Josh and Lance laughing, the two men walking back towards the house.

Justin's eyes met Lucas' violet, Lucas' hands going to his wet robe, the cloth leaving his body.

Justin saw the love in Lucas' violet pools, the man smiling, his pout gone.

"I've very wet, Lucky."

Lucas smiled, picking Justin's smooth body up again, throwing him over his back, the young man slapping his naked backside.

"I can blow-dry like the best of them, HD."
Justin laughed, Lucas carrying him back into the house.


Lucas smiled, his eyes meeting two blue pools, Justin walking back into the kitchen, the man now dressed in shorts and a polo shirt.

"There you are, Jus. You take forever to get ready. Lucas has been back for twenty minutes." Josh smiled, Justin smiling at him.

"Your husband wouldn't help me dress, Joshy. He left half the task undone." Justin smiled, kissing his own man's lips, Lance and Josh at the kitchen counter buttering toast and filling platters with food out of the frying pans.

Lucas was smiling, refilling the coffeemaker, the kitchen table now ready for his awakening family.

"I did the task required of me. You're dry, aren't you?" Lucas smiled, Justin smiling at him.

"Dry indeed. You make a great vacuum, Carver." he smiled, Lance laughing.

"Yes, our permanent Turbo Suck." Lance grinned, Lucas laughing.

The others joined in, Justin sitting down at the kitchen table.

"Others are up. I met your parents in the hallway heading into the kids' nursery, Luke. They said they'd bring them down." he smiled, Lucas nodding, looking upwards.
"Everyone's up. I feel all their love. And today they travel back to their continuing lives." he smiled, Josh kissing his cheek.

"And we to ours, babe. Back to just ourselves. And our new angels." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"A joined family of love. My tour begins again in two weeks. We'll get all organized and focused. Me with my music, and you with yours. And our grueling boss will hone his bitches to perfection." Lucas smiled, Justin laughing at him.

"You need to tone more than hone, Carver. Married life's making you tubby." he grinned, Josh and Lance smirking, Lucas folding his arms.

"You calling me fat, Tubby Timby?"

Justin smirked, showing an angelic face.

"No, Luke. I happen to like porky angels." Justin smiled, Lucas laughing loudly.

"You just like to pork angels, slut. All three of us."

Justin laughed, smiling.

Savannah and Karen walked into the room, each carrying a bundle in their arms, followed by their husbands, Lucas smiling at all, kissing their cheeks.

"You know they are ours, right? You can't take them with you." he smiled at his children, the two mothers laughing, kissing him back.
"We know. We're going to miss them." Karen said, Josh's arm going around his mother, kissing her cheek.

"They'll remember your grandmotherly love until next they see you." he smiled, both smiling at him.

"My boy with a family! It's just so wonderful!" Karen smiled, Lucas smiling at her.

"That it is, Mom. That it is!" he smiled, Colton walking into the kitchen, his arms going around Lucas, the man hugging the young man.

"Morning, Dad." Colton yawned, Lucas smiling and kissing his cheek, Colton's head now against his chest.

"Morning, son. Where are the other two of your love?"
Colton smiled, raising his head.

"They're in the shower. For the second time." he smiled, Lucas laughing.

"Young love can be dirty. It needs constant cleaning."
Colton blushed, others laughing, Lucas kissing his cheek again.

"Sit down in Justin's lap, Colt. He needs some inspiration."

Colton smiled, in Justin's lap in moments, the man smiling and hugging him close.

"Someone's snugly this morning." he said, Colton's eyes closing, his head against his chest.

"Love calms all souls, my love." Lucas smiled, Lynn and Paul walking into the kitchen, followed by Francesca and Emerson.

Trish and Andrew walked into the room with Tristan, all their families now together as one.

Everyone cooed over the two infants in their grandparents' arms, Lucas hugging and kissing all of them.

Lucas heard the front buzzer going off, smiling.

"That'll be the Delaney clan. I swear, their noses have radar."
Everyone laughed, Lucas smiling and walking out of the room.

Finn and his family and parents walked into the room following Lucas, the young man smiling at everyone.

Harry and Alain were there now, both hugging Lucas.

"Once Colton's harem gets here we can eat." Lucas smiled, Roy smiling at him, little Joshua Lance now in his arms.

"I'm going to miss your cooking, Luke. Thank god my wife's matches yours. She gets by on more than her sexy looks." he winked at Karen, she lightly slapping his shoulder.

Lucas laughed, smiling at the family around him.

"I'm going to miss all of you. A man is nothing without family. And I have so much."

Everyone smiled, some showing tears.

Haras and Jonathan finally walked into the room, Lucas smiling at both.

"The last of the stragglers." Lucas said, kissing both on the cheek, both smiling at him.

"Spic and span. All squeaky clean." he said, both young men softly blushing.

"We didn't have our sponge." Haras smiled, his brown pools meeting Colton's blue pools of love, the young man now in Jonathan's arms.

"He soaks up the love, indeed." Lucas smiled, Colton smiling at him.

"Let's sit down, my family. Our paths continue. As does my bountiful love."

Everyone smiled, sitting down at the enlarged kitchen table.

Lucas smiled, he and his husbands gathering the food for their families.


Harry, Alain and Finn all drove their parting families to the airport.

They all exchanged tearful goodbyes on their home's front steps, Lucas hugged by all.

Promises were given for future phone calls and visits, the families separating.

Justin sensed they were all now locked together as one big family.

And Lucas was the center of all of them.

Lucas smiled, watching his families leave, Josh's arm around him.

"We finally have the place to ourselves again." he smiled, Justin and Lance both standing beside them, their infants in their arms.

"Not entirely, my love. We have our three young bucks and our nosy neighbors. Plus Harry, Alain, Trashy and Drew." Lucas smiled, closing their front door, the three men smiling at him.

"Let's kick out the neighbors. The young studs are heading out for lunch with Rico and Derek. Now just to get rid of the other four." Justin smiled, rubbing his hands together.

Lucas laughed, kissing Justin's cheek.

"Tone it down, HD. Even if we were alone, you'd still be doing your chores, Diaper Man."

Josh and Lance laughed, Justin smiling.

"Hint given, master. Come on, Lancy. Let's change the kiddies." he smiled, Lance smiling and following him, the two heading up the stairs with the babies.

Josh's arms went around Lucas, the young man smiling at him.

"Home sweet home. It's so nice having them all here. Our loves, our children and our friends." Josh smiled, Lucas kissing his lips.

"Anywhere you are is home to me, beautiful."
Josh smiled, he and Lucas heading for the patio.

They walked out into the sunshine, seeing their friends in and around the pool.

The three young stallions were snuggled together in the deep end, their bronzed chests underwater, their hands on soft adventures of exploration.

"Keep it clean, young bucks! Or I'll hose you down!" Lucas yelled, Haras smiling towards him.

"Go ahead, Luke! Water turns us all on!" he yelled back, Lucas laughing, the man's polo shirt leaving his chest, Josh smiling at his revealed beauty.

"Race you to the pool, my love." he said, Josh smiling at him.

"You dive in, babe. I'm going to chat with Trish and Drew." he smiled, Lucas kissing his lips.

"A dry man is fun too."

"I'll let you wet me later, sexy."

Lucas smiled, the young man running across the pool's marbled edge, diving into it right in front of Harry and Alain.

Josh smiled, walking over to Trish and Drew, the two sunning themselves in loungers.

A few minutes later Lance and Justin walked out of the house, Justin shirtless, Lance wearing an athletic shirt, their kids in their arms.

"Time for your first swims, my angels." Lance said, kissing little Justy's forehead, the boy cooing.

Justin took the child from Lance, the man's shirt leaving his chest, taking the baby back into his arms.

Lucas smiled at the four, Finn yelling towards them.

"Come on into the shallow end, guys." he said, the two men smiling, walking to the end of the pool where Skyler and Finn were with their infants.

Lucas smiled, a hand going to his shoulder, the man turning his head, staring into two blue pools.

"A week of surprises, Lucas. You love surprises us all." Harry said, Lucas smiling at his cousin.

"Just one of many, Har." Lucas smiled, Alain smiling at the two men, his black arms around Harry's floating waist.

"So many lost souls, Lucas. Your love draws all out into the real life." the black man said, Lucas smiling at him, his eyes going towards Haras, the Egyptian smiling between Jonathan and Colton, Colton's lips on his neck, Jonathan's lips on his ear.

"My family is filled with lost souls, my friends. On both sides of the life. It is my destiny to bring all the love into the open. And the magic. And then my magic will run its course."

"You seem well focused on all, Lucas." Alain said, Lucas smiling at him.

"I am, Alain. I have to be. For it's all on myself."

The two men looked at each other, their eyes meeting Lucas' violet pools.

"We both will stand by you through all and anything, Lucas." Alain said, Lucas swimming forward, kissing the man's cheek, then Harry's.

"I feel your love and protection. I feel the greater friendship and family within your souls. All truths of life are done for love. Excuse me, I have to go to my angels. All five." Lucas smiled, the young man swimming towards the shallow end, Josh now in the water with Justin and Lance, their infants floating in front of them, their fathers' love protecting them.

"He's so focused, so amazing." Alain said, Harry's lips meeting his.

They broke their kiss, Harry smiling at his black soulmate.

"He is love, Alain. And I think he knows our trueness."

Alain's eyes went to Lucas, the black man feeling Harry's lips on his cheek.

He turned, staring into his blue pools.

"Forever, Ali. Our love is ours forever."
Alain teared up, their lips meeting.

Neither saw Lucas quietly watching both.


The three young stallions left just before lunch, Jonathan driving them to Enrique's restaurant in Justin's SUV.

Lucas and Lance made a large lunch for everyone, their friends surrounding them.

Josh and Justin fed the babies, both cooing with happiness beside Finn and Skyler's, the four in their car seat carriers on top of another table.

"They're all so gentle, so happy." Skyler smiled, Finn kissing her cheek.

"They have Lukey's love in their hearts, that calms all souls." Finn said, Lucas smiling at him.

"It's certainly not the Delaney charm. They'll be rambunctious soon enough, once they get their feet."  Lucas said, Finn laughing.

"I was a running terror. My boy will be the same!" he smiled, Justin laughing.

"And you calmed down when?"

Finn laughed, raising a finger.

"Your boy will have three playmates on his heels, Finny." Trish smiled, Lucas smiling at his sister.

"A quartet of friendship." Lucas said, little Joshy noisily gurgling, Lucas rocking his carrier, seated beside their table.

"Indeed, my son." he said, Finn smiling, his blue eyes looking at Lucas.

"Something you want to voice, Finny?" Lucas smiled, leaning back in his chair beside the car seats.

Finn's eyes met Skyler's, Josh staring at them, then at Lucas.

"We've noticed something, Luke." Finn said, Lucas smiling again.

"I've felt your eyes on my ass, Finny. Eye candy is eye candy."

Justin laughed, Finn blushing.

"It's not that, Luke. It's the kids."

Lucas softly nodded, looking at his friend.

Josh traded looks with Justin and Lance, Skyler's eyes on all four men.

"It's nothing wrong, Josh. It's just something we've noticed." she said, Josh looking at her.

"What have you noticed, Skyler?" Josh said, Skyler's blue eyes meeting Lucas' violet.

"Little Joshy and Justy are amazing, Luke. We've seen a watchful look in their small eyes. It's like they're focused on all around them. More so than Julian and Diana. Our children are normal and coming to life and healthy. But we sense your boys are ahead of them. It's like they're maturing faster. I didn't want you to worry you." Skyler said, looking into Lucas' violet eyes.

"I know, Sky."

Everyone looked surprised, Lucas' eyes going around the patio.

"My children have my magic, everyone. I feel it in their souls. That is what you're sensing, Sky. They are focused on life. The magic will always guide them." Lucas said, the young man's eyes going to the two carriers beside him, two small faces smiling at him.

Josh's eyes met Lucas', the young man sighing, rising from his seat, everyone watching him walk off the patio and up to the pool's edge.

Justin's eyes met Lance's and Josh's, the three rising as one, everyone watching them walk off the patio.

Lucas stared at the water in front of him, the young man feeling a hand going to his shoulder.

"I'm sorry, my loves. I've known since the first moment of their existence. They are a part of me, as is the magic."

Josh turned the young man around, Lucas staring into two sets of blue and one of green eyes.

"They're magical, Luke?" Lance said, staring at the young man.

Lucas nodded, Justin's hand going to his shoulder.

"You've known since their existence?" he said, Lucas nodding again.

"Yes, Jus. I felt the magic flow from myself into them in the white light of life." he said, Josh pulling the young man close.

"They have that ancient magic?" Josh said, Lucas shaking his head no.

"No, my love. They have the magic of myself. The hidden magic of my soul." he said, the three men staring at him.

"Then they will have a life of love and happiness." Josh said, Lucas staring at him.

Justin smiled, kissing Lucas' cheek.

"You're right, Joshy. They have Lucas' love and magic. They'll be loved by us as you are, Lucky." Justin said, Lance smiling.

"Two little beings of love and magic. We're going to be so amazed!" he smiled, Lucas meeting all three sets of loving eyes.

"You're not upset?" he said, Josh smiling, his lips meeting Lucas'.

"You've said it a thousand times, Luke. You magic is your love. Those two loving parts of our soul have your love. We'll never stop loving them, as we'll never stop loving you." Josh said, Lucas tearing up.

"I love you three so much. I will never stop loving them or you."

Josh smiled, Lucas kissing all three.

"Magical kids! Well that's me! I'm one of a kind!" Justin grinned, Lance and Josh laughing.

Lucas smiled, Justin backing up.

"Just kidding, Luke! I just got dry!" he smiled, Lucas laughing.

"Lessons learned, beautiful." he smiled, Justin smiling at him, the three walking back up onto the patio.

Finn and Skyler rose from their seats, Lucas smiling at them.

"The guys are right, Luke. The kids have your love. Your magic's a part of that. Our kids are going to have some awesome friends." Finn smiled, Lucas smiling widely, hugging his friends, everyone smiling at his showing happiness.

"Indeed, my friends. Like father like son." Lucas smiled, Finn smiling.

"Forever friends, Luke." he said, Skyler smiling.

Everyone sat down again, all eyes on the two little infants seated beside Finn's and Skyler's infants.

"Friends forever." Lucas smiled, pouring himself a glass of lemonade.


About two hours later Lucas climbed out of the pool, towelling himself off, his three men smiling up at him from the water.

"You tired Finny out, Luke. All that hair's dead weight!" Alain yelled from the deep end, Finn out of the pool now as well, Skyler towelling him off as he sat down beside her chair.

"He's still filled with lunch's weighty riches. As our returning marauders are." Lucas smiled, the patio doors opening, five smiling faces coming into view.

Haras smiled at Lucas, his hands in Colton's and Jonathan's, Enrique and Derek behind them.

Everyone looked towards Lucas, then them, Finn smirking.

"His magic's always on."
"As is his love." Skyler smiled, kissing her man's lips.

The children were all asleep upstairs, the warm sunshine tiring them out.

"Afternoon, boys. How went lunch?" Lucas smiled, slipping his black athletic shirt on, his smooth muscular chest disappearing under it.

Colton smiled, walking up to the young man.

"Enrique's food is divine, Dad. I'm stuffed." he smiled, Jonathan's arm around him.

"The Spanish fare was always to my liking." Haras said, Enrique smiling at him.

Derek's eyes were on Lucas, the young man smiling at him.

"My mother's recipes always drew us home." Enrique smiled, his hand in Derek's.

"Food is always better when it's created with love." Lucas smiled, kissing Colton's cheek.

"I'm just about to start rounding up dinner for these moochers. You boys enjoy the pool." Lucas said, Enrique smiling at him.

"Need help, Luke?"
"Always, Rico. You're not as young as my usual slaves, but you're sexy." Lucas smiled, Colton rolling his eyes, Lucas laughing.

"Hit the water boys. And show some skin." he smiled, Colton smiling, Haras' shirt coming off, everyone smiling at his bronzed physique.

Derek smiled, his shirt coming off as well, Haras smiling at his naked smoothness.

The Egyptian ran at the pool, diving into the blue water.

Three young men smiled, following him.

Enrique smiled, following Lucas into the house.

The two began preparing dinner, Lucas showing Enrique his ideas, the Spaniard helping him with some of his own dishes.

The two worked together, Lucas smiling at the singer, seeing him look out the kitchen window often.

"Your heart shows its happiness, Rico. I take it the love's unchanged?"

Enrique's eyes met his, the young man smiling at him.

"It was you, wasn't it? Derek is certain of that."

Lucas smiled, a soft blush coming across his cheeks.

"He was showing his insecurities yesterday, the soft doubt of your love for him. He needed to show you his real self to destroy those doubts. I thought I'd lend a hand." Lucas said, filling a bowl with the chopped lettuce he'd been working on.

Enrique's eyes went to the window again, seeing his lover diving off the diving board into the pool, the man smiling.

"His real self was as beautiful as the man I've always known. His love was real always."
Lucas smiled, nodding his head.

"Love is real no matter the length of its life, Rico. Hemi's had a long life, now finding the love he needed in you."

Enrique stared out the window.

"His love is unbelievable, Luke. Last night it was as if it doubled."

Lucas smiled, his hand going to the man's polo shirt-covered shoulder.

"Welcome to a new triad of love, Rico. Your blond young lion and your hidden Egyptian tiger."
Enrique smiled, their eyes meeting.

"Both may kill me."
Lucas laughed, smiling at him.

"But man, what a way to go!"

Enrique laughed loudly, Lucas smiling at him.

"And you have it worse, Luke. A quartet of love. That Timberlake tiger looks unstoppable."

Lucas smiled, looking out the window as well.

"All three of us have him controlled. You'd be surprised what you can do with chains."

Enrique burst into laughter, Josh smiling and walking into the kitchen from the patio.

"What's so funny, boys?"

"Nothing, babe. Rico's just regaling me with old stories of pop band egotists he once knew. One was even into chains."

Enrique laughed again, Josh smirking.

"Anyone I know?"

Lucas smiled, kissing his man's lips.

"I taste him on you."
Enrique laughed, Josh smiling at him.

"He's our horn dog, Rico. We haven't gone to chains yet."

Lucas laughed, Josh smiling at him.

"The masses sent me in for drinks." he smiled, heading to the refrigerator, Lucas smiling at Enrique.

"Thanks for the help, Rico. You need to head out to your own whipping boy out there. Try and get our horn dog all hot." Lucas smiled, Enrique smiling, the man pulling his polo shirt over his head, Josh and Lucas staring at his smooth toned chest.

"Still amazing, Rico." Josh smiled, Enrique smiling at him.

"Yes, you and your men are. I'll go turn on the chain boy." he smiled, the Spaniard walking out of the kitchen onto the patio.

Josh smiled at Lucas, his husband smiling back.

"He's beautiful, Luke. But he's not you."
Lucas smiled, Josh returning to the fridge, leaning down and pulling out some frozen fruit juice cans.

Lucas' hand found his backside, slapping it.

Josh rose, staring at his man.

"You need glasses, babe. I'd love to lick that Spanish popsicle."

Josh laughed, their lips meeting.

"He's delicious, babe. But you're heavenly, my angel."

"I feel his friendship for you, my love. It's equal to his for myself. Past loves can't hold a candle to new friendship." Lucas said, Josh smiling and pulling out a pitcher of ice water.

"So what's the new look I see in his and Derek's eyes? Has your love been stirring again?"
Lucas smiled, kissing his man's cheek.

"They needed to see themselves, babe. My love and magic always shows the truth, however deeply hidden." he said, Lucas' violet pools looking out the window again, seeing Enrique and Derek swimming with Harry and Alain..

Josh smiled, kissing his man's cheek.

Lucas smiled, returning to his salads, Josh smiling and filling the pitcher with fruit juice.


Justin sighed, the water falling over his naked shoulders, the water warm and soothing.

He felt two arms wrap around his naked chest, two lips licking the water off his neck.

"You came back, Rico." Justin said, a hand slapping his ass.

"You wish, slut."
Justin laughed, turning around in Lucas' strong arms, the young man smiling at him.

"My plan worked."
"Your plan?" Justin said, looking at the naked young man quizzically.

Lucas smiled, his hand going around Justin's risen center, stroking its smooth hard length.

"I asked him to fire up your cylinders all afternoon and evening. You're beyond stoked."

Justin blushed, Lucas leaning forward and kissing his warm wet lips.

"Just how we love you."
Justin smiled, staring into his violet pools.

"Take me as I am. Eye candy stokes my desires. And he and Derek are beautiful." he smiled, Lucas' fingers going to his left nipple, tweaking it.

"Oh, I'm going to take you." Lucas smiled, pulling the man into his wet arms, their lips meeting.

Justin felt the flowing love, the young man's hands moving all over him.

"God, Lucky! You're the best!" Justin said, Lucas breaking another kiss with him, his lips attacking Justin's right earlobe.

Justin moaned, Lucas' hand rubbing his face.

"I love you, Jus. Eye candy means nothing against our love." Lucas said, the young man moving, picking Justin up in his wet arms, the man staring into his now showing green pools.

"God I need your magical love, Lucky!" he said, Lucas smiling and carrying the man in his arms, walking out of the shower, Lucas killing the water flow before they left.

He didn't bother drying off either of them, the young man carrying Justin into their bedroom, Justin's eyes taking in two naked visions of smooth love kneeling on their bed.

His eyes went to their erect centers, seeing the wetness on them, sensing the two had been devouring each other.

"It was myself, Jus. I readied them for your needs." Lucas smiled, the man tossing Justin's wet naked body onto the bed, his two other lovers smiling down at him.

"A wet dream before us, Joshy." Lance smiled, Josh moving, his lips meeting Justin's stomach, licking the wetness off him.

"Delicious. Dessert is served, my loves."

Justin laughed, two lips silencing his laughter, his husband kissing him deeply.

Justin felt another join them on the bed, the man feeling another set of lips diving into his wet armpit.

"Dessert indeed." Lance said, pulling off Justin's lips, their eyes meeting.

Lance moved, Justin gasping when he felt the wetness around his hard center.

Another set of lips met his, Justin feeling Lucas' love in the kiss.

He felt his Josh's lips now lower, his talented tongue invading Justin's wet center.

He moaned in Lucas' kiss, a tongue invading his mouth.

The man became lost, the love around him owning him.

Two hours later four men snuggled together, Justin asleep in their center.

"Our love overpowered him." Lance smiled, kissing his man's forehead, Justin moving closer to him.

"Careful, Lancy. You'll get a rise out of him again." Josh smiled, his arms wrapped around his man.

"He's done, Josh. I feel his soul's contentedness. He's dreaming of our love." Lucas smiled, Lance smiling, kissing his lips.

"Why dream when the real thing is so moving? Thank you as always, my love. Your love owns us all."

Lucas smiled, snuggling against Lance.

"My love is moved by your love. Your own love stokes the fires of my love."

Josh smiled, leaning over and kissing Lance as well.

"We're going to love you forever, babe. And we're going to be beyond happy."

"Sleep calls, my beauties. The tiger is getting clingy already." Lucas smiled, seeing Justin's hands moving, one attaching to Lance's monster, the other wrapping around his waist.

"He's my blankie." Lance smiled, Josh lightly laughing.

"His love covers all of us, Lancy." Lucas smiled, the three moving, settling back into the bed, their warmth surrounding each other.

"Goodnight, my loves." Lance said, Josh and Lucas returning the words.

Josh snuggled against Lance, Justin on his other side, Lucas spooning against his husband's naked form.

He lay in quietness, hearing the calming breathing of his soulmates, all three falling into slumber's embrace.

Twenty minutes later, Lucas rose from their bed, pulling the blankets over all three of them, the three not moving.

Lucas smiled, pulling on his robe.

He glanced at the clock on the nightstand, the hour at two-thirty.

He sighed, pulling on his robe, tying it and quietly walking out of the bedroom.

He crossed the hall, checking on the twins, both sound asleep and wrapped together.

He smiled, looking towards the waterfall in the corner.

"Water flows, love shows." he softly said, the young man walking out of the room, closing the door silently.

His eyes scanned the hall, Lucas seeing a soft light under Colton's door, the young man smiling.

He silently walked down the staircase, the bottom floor silent and in darkness.

He walked into the kitchen, opening the fridge door, pulling out a carton of milk, filling a glass, returning the carton to the fridge.

He found a bag of cookies in the cupboard, carrying the bag of Oreos over to the table, the young man sitting down, leaning back and picking up the house phone off its charger.

He took a drink of the milk, quietly eating an Oreo, dunking it in the milk.

After the cookie was finished, Lucas glanced at the clock, picking up the phone.

He hit a few numbers, waiting.

"Good morning, Grayson speaking." Grayson said, answering the phone on the other end.

"Good morning, Uncle Gray. I hope I didn't wake you?" Lucas said, Grayson smiling on the other side of the world.

"No, Lucas. It's ten-thirty here. Gabriel and I are just sitting down to brunch."
Lucas smiled, looking out into the dark backyard through the patio doors.

"How is London?" Lucas said, settling back in his chair.

"Surprisingly warm and sunny for February, Lucas. My old bones could retire here."

Lucas lightly laughed, Grayson smiling.

"How is the love, my friend?" Lucas said, Grayson smiling into Gabriel's blue pools.

"It's even warmer, Lucas. We both feel twenty years younger. Thank you for revitalizing our souls with this adventure."

"Your love revitalizes your souls, Uncle Gray."

Grayson smiled, Gabriel's hand going in his.

"How finds the adventure?"

"It looks promising, Lucas. Your mysteries are bearing fruit. We've gone to both sites and have found some intriguing things. It looks promising." Grayson said, Lucas looking out into the darkness.

"You will find it, Gray. I have full faith in that." Lucas said, sipping at his milk.

"If we do, what will that mean, Lucas?" Grayson said, intrigue showing in his voice.

"It will mean what my soul senses, Uncle Gray. And then I'll have the answer." Lucas said, Grayson looking into Gabriel's eyes.

"You are a man of mystery. You can't give us any other clue as to what we're searching for?"

"I'm not totally sure myself, Gray. I'm just hoping he left a clue."
"Who left, Lucas?"

"The creator of this path, Gray. I think destiny's focusing finally."
Grayson looked at Gabriel.
"We'll continue the search, Lucas. Lewis and Jacques are coming after brunch to help."
Lucas smiled, looking out into the darkness again.

"Tell the good Reverend that I need his faith today. I sense a moment of faith will focus the path."

"Alright, Lucas. We shall return to America next week. Hopefully we'll have what you need."

Lucas smiled, hearing a noise in the darkness.

"I'm certain you will, Uncle Gray. I'll await your call. Give my love to Lewis and Jacques, and Uncle Gabriel."

Grayson smiled, Gabriel smiling at him.

"I shall, Lucas. Good night."

"Goodnight, Grayson." Lucas said, closing off the phone.

The young man finished his glass of milk, his violet pools softly glowing.

"Come out of the darkness, my friend." Lucas said, his eyes going to the kitchen's darkened doorway.

A shadow moved, walking into the kitchen, two eyes meeting his violet pools.

"I didn't want to intrude, Lucas." the man said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Your love never intrudes, my friend. Your love behind you can come out as well." Lucas said, seeing another shadow behind the man before him.

Another man walked into the room, two hands going together.

"I felt your love in the darkness, my cousin." Lucas smiled, Harry's blue pools staring at him, a soft glow showing in their blueness.

"Relax the magic within your soul, Har. I feel your love more."
Alain's eyes met his soulmate's, his arm going around Harry's waist.

"We need to tell you something, Lucas." Alain said, Harry kissing his cheek.

"It's my secret, my love." he said, Alain looking into his blue pools.

"Our lives hold no secrets between us, my love. We are one of soul."

Lucas smiled, rising from his seat, walking up to both young men.

"I or our family don't need to know the secrets of any souls tonight. Moments of life and truth come later." Lucas smiled, Harry staring into his violet pools.

"You know, don't you?"
Lucas smiled, kissing his cheek.

"Yes, my cousin of love. I've known since the first moment you and your Ali walked into my life."

Harry and Alain both looked surprised, Lucas kissing Alain's cheek now.

"I feel the love behind your secret. And the great beauty of the afterglow of the magic."

"I. . .I had no choice, Lucas." Alain said, Lucas seeing tears in his brown pools.

"You chose love, Alain. They'll all see that in the end." Lucas said, his hand going into both of theirs.

"We are family, in all ways. And I, as your cousin, love both of you. A greater sacrifice no other love could give."

"We are one, Lucas." Harry said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Forever, Har. Forever."
Alain smiled, the two men smiling at Lucas.

"We will abide by your path, Lucas." Alain said, Lucas nodding.
"Everyone shall, my friends. And your secret will ignite the weapon I need."

"Us, Lucas?" Harry said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Yes, Harry. For me to win the victory of life and love, and magic, I shall need all shades of magic, real or imagined." Lucas smiled, kissing both on the cheek again.

"I must return to my loves. I think you should return to your one soul."

The two men smiled, both kissing Lucas on the cheek.

The two joined hands again, Lucas watching both disappear before him.

Lucas smiled, the young man walking out of the kitchen, heading back upstairs.


End of Chapter 184


What the hell?
Are Harry and Alain shades?

Did they just disappear before Lucas?
He seemed not surprised by that.

As if he sensed they weren't real.


What are Grayson and Gabriel searching for in London?
It seems Lucas has sent them on an adventure with Lewis and Jacques.

The young man seems focused on his path ahead.


Their children now show magic, Lucas feeling it in his soul.

It hasn't changed the other three of his heart's love for him or them.

A fivesome of love now united under Lucas' love.


Mysteries still abound around Lucas and his past.

And paths seem to be joining.

The path of their love continues.


Hugs, Angel.
