Chapter 204


Lucas smiled, the young man walking onto the patio, everyone smiling towards him.

Finn walked up to him, the Welshman smiling at him.

"There you are, Lukey! I need your help." Finn smiled, his hand going to Lucas’ shoulder.

"You are beyond help, my friend." Lucas smiled, Finn laughing.

"I'm not kidding around, Luke. Alain and I have a bet on." the man smiled, Lucas smiling at his friend.

"And what have you wagered? On what? Is our Finny about to become Alain's bitch?"

Finn blushed, the black man grinning.

"I so wish!" he smiled, Finn smirking at him.

"In your dreams, Harry’s biatch."

Lucas smiled at the two, seeing their friendship and happiness, Finn’s eyes going to Lucas again.

"Alain and I are arguing about what's going to happen tonight." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"And what’s the consensus? It must be divisive if you two have a bet on it." Lucas smiled, Alain smiling at him, everyone around them smiling

"Not divisive, Luke. We’ve just been throwing out ideas." Alain smiled, Harry’s arm wrapping around him.

"I told them both to just go with the flow, Luke. Your love flows always." Harry smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"Sage advice, grasshopper." Lucas smiled, Harry chuckling, Josh walking up to Lucas, the young man smiling his Josh smile at him.

"I was just going to go up and wake you, my love." he said, their lips meeting.

"Your love would wake the dead, my love." Lucas smiled, Josh smiling at him.

"Feeling okay, babe?" he said, Lucas smiling at him again.

"You’re in my arms, I’m fantastic." he said, Josh smiling.

Lucas' eyes looked around the patio and pool area, everyone smiling.

He saw everyone dressed casually, some people wearing patriotic attire, the backyard surrounded by patriotic symbols, flags waving everywhere.

"Happy Fourth, everyone! Welcome to our home of friendship and love." he smiled, everyone greeting him, all walking up onto the patio now.

Adam smiled at him, the singer wearing a skintight American flag t-shirt.

Usher’s arm was around him, Pierce at his side, both men wearing the same t-shirt, all looking buffed and manly.

"Triple patriotic beauties." Lucas smiled, Adam smiling at him.

"I know what flag I’ll salute." he said, Usher rolling his eyes, Pierce laughing.

"Especially when it’s at full mast." he said, Lucas laughing, others joining him, Usher blushing, but smiling.

Sheila and Felix walked up to him, the young woman carrying little Joshy in her arms, Lucas smiling at his son.

"Welcome to my home, my friends." he smiled, Felix smiling at him, his arm around his wife.

"Thank you for inviting us, Lucas. It’s a beautiful home. And your friends are wonderful." the doctor said, Pierce smiling at his friend.

"We are all just regular people, Felix. We walk our life’s path as all do." Lucas smiled, Joey smirking, he and Kelly seated at a patio table.

"And some of us have extraordinary lives at that." he said, Lucas smiling towards him.

Briahna sat beside him, little Justy in her arms, her mother smiling at him, watchful of the baby.

"Yes, you lucked out, Joe." Lucas said, Joey laughing, kissing his daughter’s cheek.

"Yes indeed."

Lucas smiled, the young man feeling a hand go to his shoulder, turning and looking into two brown pools.

Gio smiled at him, Nick and Gideon at his sides.

"Everyone's been talking about something you said, Luke. Something about surprises?" Gio smiled, Lucas smiling, looking around at everyone, his eyes meeting Felix’s.

The young doctor smiled, looking around.

"Your friends show their love easily, Lucas. They have my utmost respect and discretion." the young doctor said, Nick smiling at him, his arms going around Gio and Gideon.

"Sweet! An open night of happiness!" he grinned, Lucas smiling at him.

"Not too open, Carter. You'll warp your brother's mind."

Aaron laughed, he and Craig seated beside Joey, both munching on an hors d'oeuvres tray on the table.

The fivesome of love were smiling at another table, Enrique’s brown eyes meeting his violet.

"The appetizers are a hit, Luke. Yours more than mine." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"I’m sure both are to die for, Rico." Lucas smiled, Justin and Lance now at his and Josh’s sides.

"How are you feeling, babe?" Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.

"I’m fine, Jus. Refreshed and happy." Lucas smiled, everyone smiling at him, Lance’s green pools quietly staring at him.

"Does everyone have a glass? I’d like to propose a toast." Lucas smiled, everyone smiling, Colton and Jonathan walking around with trays of wine glasses filled with a sweet white wine, everyone taking a glass.

Everyone smiled at Lucas, the young man’s hand going in Josh’s, Josh smiling at him.

"Welcome to a night of happiness and celebratory love. A year ago I walked into my grandparents' home with a hidden past following me. I have found most of that past over the last year. I have also found something far more valuable. I have found love. The love of family, the love of my three of love, and the love of my sons' smiling love. I have also found the love and friendship of all of you. Tonight is a celebration of that as well. We all have gained so much. All hearts I feel here tonight are filled with love and happiness. Let's celebrate our own happiness. To love! To friendship and life!"

Everyone seconded Lucas’ toast, sipping on the sweet wine and drinks, Lucas smiling at everyone.

"It seems my absence has stoked the intrigue of your inquiring minds. All surprises come from the heart. My love flows tonight. You had that right, Har."
Harry smiled, looking at his cousin.

"We’re ready for anything, Luke." Finn smiled, Lucas smiling at him and Alain.

"So what was the bet?"

The two men looked at each other, Alain smiling.

"I said you're cooking up something magical. Finny said you're going to show your love more. Winner gets breakfast in bed for a week."

"So who wins, Lukey?" Finn smiled, Lucas smiling at both men.

"Time will tell, my friends. Time will tell." he smiled, both looking at him.

Chris smiled at Lucas, he and Piney at the same table with the fivesome.

"You’re being coy, Luke." he said, Lucas smiling.

"Let's mingle, my love. Let's find the happiness our sons have in our friends' arms."
Kelly smiled, Briahna beaming, Sheila sitting down at the same table, Felix guiding his wife to her seat with love.

Lucas smiled, Josh’s arm going in his, the two walking up to the two Chrises, everyone chatting and smiling.


An hour later Enrique’s buffet was ready, everyone dining on his Spanish recipes, no one wanting for anything.

The food was delicious, the company festive and happy.

Lance excused himself when his phone went off, the man walking into the house, everyone chatting around the patio tables, Lucas and Josh seated with Justin at Joey’s table.

Joey sighed, leaning back in his chair.

"That was heaven, Luke." he smiled, Lucas smiling towards Enrique.

"The kudos go to Rico, Joe. He catered all this from his restaurant."  Everyone clapping, the Spaniard bowing his head, Joey giving him a thumbs up.

"You have the emperor’s approval, Rico." Lucas smiled, Joey laughing.

"All hail me!"

Kelly rolled her eyes, Joey kissing his wife’s cheek.

Lucas smiled, little Joshy in his arms, the baby sucking on his bottle.

Justin had little Justy, Josh seated between them.

"They’re ravenous tonight." Justin smiled, lifting Justy up, the baby burping when he rubbed his back.

"They feel the love surrounding them. We all hunger for love." Lucas smiled, little Joshy smiling up at him, his bottle done.
"Wuv, Dada!"

Felix and Sheila at the next table widened their eyes in surprise, Lucas smiling at them.

"They’re of my love, and magic, Felix. We all mature at our own rate." he smiled, the baby smiling up at him.

Lance walked back out of the house, Justin smiling at him when he sat down, Lance smiling back.

Josh took Joshy from Lucas, the young man smiling at him, Josh kissing his cheek.

"Finish your coffee, my love." he smiled, Lucas smiling and sipping his coffee, Lance’s green pools on him.

"I take it Grayson told you everything, Lance." Lucas said, his violet pools meeting Lance’s green.

Justin and Josh looked at Lance, then Lucas, everyone on the patio having heard Lucas’ words, the patio quieting.

"Yes, Luke. He told me of your wandering path of love. And of your joining your father's destiny."

Josh looked at Lance.

"What do you mean, Lance? Wandering path?" he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Grayson worded it beautifully, Lance. And my father's destiny was always his own choice. I just had to be there to see his love for his father join with his heart."

Everyone looked at Lance, Lucas nodding his head, taking little Joshy back from Josh, Josh staring at him while Lucas rocked his son.

"I should have clued into it, Luke. Your sudden need for rest." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Your intelligence is great, my love. I knew you’d be the first to clue into it. After Colton, that is." Lucas said, Colton smiling at him.

"I didn’t feel it till you left, Dad." the younger man said, Jonathan’s arm around him.

"Feel what, Colty?" he said, Colton kissing his cheek, his blue eyes meeting Lucas’ violet.

"Dad’s indeed wandering love." Colton smiled, Lucas smiling at him, his eyes meeting Lance’s green.

"Go ahead, Lance. I’ll go fill the coffee pot again." Lucas said, handing little Joshy to Sheila again, the woman smiling at him.

"Are you alright, my love?" Josh said, Lucas smiling and kissing his cheek, standing up.

"I'm with you now, my love. That makes me happy." he said, the young man walking into the house, everyone’s eyes following him, then focusing on Lance.

"What’s happened, Lance?" Justin said, his hand going in his, the man smiling at him.

"Lucas' love went on a voyage, everyone. And we never knew he'd left the city."

Everyone looked confused, Lance’s voice filling the quietness.*


Lucas walked out of the house, the patio filled with staring, awed eyes.

He smiled at everyone, walking to his Josh, setting the coffee carafes down on the table in front of him, Josh rising from his seat, his arm going around him.

"You. . .you are amazing, my love." he said, Lucas smiling, kissing his lips.

"I guess I’ve opened to rave reviews." he smiled, Finn staring at him with awe.

"You. . .you went across the country?! In a flash! To Kurucu’s Haven?!" he stuttered, Lucas sighing.

"My love and magic took the trip, my friends. I had to see my father's happiness at that moment. I have felt his heart's truths for a while now. I knew he'd walk his path as he chose."

"He’s accepted the chairmanship of that massive company." Lance said, Lucas nodding.

"I always knew that he would, Lance. I never--or would ever--want it. He was the obvious choice. He just had to see that in his own heart. He's happy, as is my grandfather. Their lives are on their right paths,"

Lance stood up, Justin rising as well, the two boys in their arms now.

"Grayson said you were normal, Lucas." Lance said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Have you ever known me to be normal, cutie?"

Some people laughed, showing awe on their faces still, Lucas’ humor lifting the patio’s silence.

Lance smiled, kissing Lucas’ cheek.

"No, I meant Grayson said you were your normal physical self. Black hair, regular height and being. Like you'd always been before your changed blonde looks." Lance said, everyone looking surprised.

Lucas sighed, his eyes going to the pool, its calm water clear and blue.

"The image they saw in Kurucu’s Haven’s ballroom was my true self. The inner me. My walking soul is my real soul." Lucas said, Finn staring at him.

"Your soul walks out of you? That’s. . .that’s so amazing, Luke!" he said, Lucas nodding.

"It is the magic within me, Finny. The increased magic of destiny." he said, Chris looking at him.

"So, you are like, teleporting?" he said, Lucas nodding.

"Something like that, Chris. I just have to lay down and relax, then my soul moves out of my body. My physical self appears to be sleeping, my inner self walking its own path." Lucas said, Josh’s arm going around him.

"We've all felt that inner soul, my love. Your parents and grandparents tonight felt its returned beauty."
Lucas smiled, nodding.

"Yes, Josh. I had to be there for my father’s happiness. It was matched by my grandfather’s." Lucas smiled, Finn looking at him again.

"So, that was the big surprise? Your moving soul taking in the happiness of your family’s growing business?" he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"I never said it was a surprise, Finny." he said, Finn looking confused.

"I said let the surprises begin."

Finn looked surprised, staring at him.

"You mean there are other surprises?" he said, Alain looking at him.

"Perhaps, surprise junkie." Lucas smiled, his eyes meeting two blue pools of love.

"Right now comes the first. I’ll be right back." Lucas smiled, the young man walking back into the house, Lance’s eyes meeting Justin’s and Josh’s.

"His love never stops." he said, his green pools meeting Colton’s blue pools, the young man walking up to Josh, Josh feeling him snuggle against him.

"Dad’s love is unending." Colton said, Josh feeling a slight tremble in the young man’s warmth.

"You knew he did it, Colt?" Finn said, Colton nodding, everyone looking at him.

"Yes, Finny. I felt his wandering soul leave my magical soul. I felt the path he was on. That’s why I knew he was safe, and spreading his love again." the young man smiled, Josh looking at him, scanning his physique, then cluing into something.

"Where’s your bow, Colt?" he said, everyone looking at the young man, realizing what Josh had just realized.

The young man smiled, his foursome of love looking at him with love.

Colton pulled the small bow out of his pocket, the bow sitting in his palm.

"It’s. . .it’s shrunk!" Finn said, Alain rolling his eyes.

"Great deduction, Sherlock." he said, Joey laughing, Finn blushing.

"Yes, Finny. Dad’s magic shrunk it. I was just as surprised as you are." he said, Josh looking at him.

"Is he okay, Colton?" he said, Colton smiling at him, kissing his cheek.

"He’s better than okay, Papa. He’s accepted the magic’s destiny and his own. The love’s won in the end." Colton smiled.

"My love always wins."

Everyone’s eyes went to the patio door, Lucas smiling at everyone.
In his hands he carried a large cake, over three feet in length, Enrique and Haras rising from their seats, helping Lucas carry it to the table where Lucas’ loves stood.

Everyone rose from their seats, looking at the red, white, and blue cake.

"Happy Independence Day, everyone." he smiled, everyone smiling at the cake.

It was in the shape of an American flag, words written across its center.


              One Nation Built of Love and Friendship

                        We are all a nation of family

                                  A nation of love


Everyone smiled, looking at Lucas.

"We are a family, all of us. Let us celebrate the uniting of our own nation of love."

"I’ll take two pieces, Luke!" Joey smiled, Lucas laughing.

"Word of warning, everyone. This cake holds its own surprise." he smiled, Finn looking at him.

"First two surprises go to Alain, Finny. Both are magical." Lucas smiled, Alain grinning.

"Awesome!" he said, Lucas smiling at him, Finn looking dejected.

"No worries, Finny, my friend. More to come." Lucas smiled, Finn smiling at him.
"This cake is magical, Luke?" he said, Lucas nodding, smiling around at everyone.

"The cake itself is only delicious and chocolate centered. Within its baked depths lay two treasures. The claimers of those treasures I’ll deal with after." Lucas smiled, the young man picking up a knife, smiling at his husband.

"It’s your home, my love. Would you do the honors?" Lucas smiled, Josh smiling and kissing his lips.

"It's our home, Lucky. Let's cut it together."

Lucas smiled, everyone’s eyes going to the cake, the two men cutting into it.

Everyone began to take pieces, their eyes showing the intrigue of Lucas’ words.*


Lucas smiled around at everyone, the young man watching all of them.

He saw the surprise showing on two faces, the young man a bit surprised himself.

Trish’s eyes were the first to meet his, her brother staring at her.

She raised her hand, a small item in her hand, its surface covered in chocolate cake.

"I think I’ve found the first one." she said, Andrew seated beside her, his arm going around her, staring at what lay in her hand.

"And I've found the second."

Everyone’s eyes went to Adam’s blue pools, the singer staring at Lucas.

He raised his hand, a small item showing in his palm, chocolate covered as well.

"A surprise, I must say." Lucas said, Josh’s blue pools meeting his.

Everyone else looked sad, Lucas smiling around at everyone.

"To the souls of love go the treasures. But all of us have tasted the sweetness of the magic's deliciousness. Tonight you'll all feel a joy in your souls at the love surrounding you."

"What, did you lace the cake with Viagra?" Joey said, Lucas laughing, others joining him.

"No, Joe. It was laced with my magical love."

Everyone smiled, Finn staring at Adam and Trish.

"So what do you have in your hands?" he said, everyone looking at them, the two rising from their seats, walking towards Lucas.

The young man smiled at his sister and friend, both stopping in front of him.

"You hold in your hand a small piece of my magic. It shall work only once, here today. The artifact containing it is yours for always." he smiled, Adam looking at him, everyone seeing a small round object in his and Trish’s hand.

"It’s alright, you can open them by tapping them, they’ll part in two." Lucas said, Adam looking at Trish.

"You can go first, Trish." he smiled, she smiling at him, Andrew now at her side.

Trish’s other hand went to her palm, lightly tapping the small white object in her hand.

The object separated, Trish’s eyes widening.

"It’s so beautiful." she said, the young woman removing a silver chained pendant from the small casing, a single pearl in its center.

"Mom has a full set, Patricia. This is the start of yours." Lucas smiled, staring at the pearl.

"I’ll put it on for you, my love." Andrew said, taking the pearl from her, opening its clasp, putting it around her neck, Lucas smiling at her.

His violet pools went to Adam, the man’s blue staring at him.

"Go ahead, Adam." Lucas said, Adam softly smiling at him.

"I have your love and friendship, Luke. I don’t know if I’m worthy of your magic." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"You have my love, Adam. That's my magic."
Adam nodded, the man using his other hand, tapping the white small balled object in his hand.

It parted in two, a silver ring lying in its center.

His eyes met Lucas', the man staring at the ring’s violet center.

A single diamond of violet hue shone from its center.

"Violet like your eyes." he said, his blue meeting Lucas’ violet.

"You'll have a piece of my soul with yours always. Both of you."
Adam smiled, as did Trish.
"Put it on, Adam." Trish smiled, Adam nodding, putting the ring on his right hand, it fitting his finger perfectly.

"So what’s the surprise, Luke?" Finn said, Skyler slapping his arms, the Welshman blushing, Lucas lightly laughing.

"Our Welsh boy toy’s chomping at the bit for some magic." he smiled, Finn smiling at him.

"And some of your love, Luke." he smiled, Lucas smiling.

He looked around the patio, smiling at everyone.

"As I said, these two treasures hold some magic within them. They are conduits of my magic’s soul. Both of you, my sister and my friend, can use that magic for one apparition." he said, the two looking at him with surprise.

"Apparition? You mean like a vision? Of the future?" Trish said, Andrew’s arm going around her.

Pierce and Usher were now at Adam’s side, both looking at him.

"What will we see?" Adam said, Lucas looking at him.

"That is for only you two to know. Only you will see it. The magic will move of your own paths. I never wanted this for you two. You both have a close place in my heart. The magic I guess senses that. I hope you will see what you need to see." Lucas said, Josh’s arm going around him.

"Will it be a vision of sorrow?" Adam said, Lucas smiling at him.

"My love and magic is not sorrowful, Adam. I think it will be a vision of happiness."

Adam and Trish both smiled, both looking at Lucas.

"So how does it work?" Adam said, Lucas smiling at both.

"You are wearing the magic. You only have to touch it to find the vision. Trish, rub the pearl, Adam rub the violet stone."

"You best step back, my loves." Adam said, Pierce and Usher both nodding.

"You as well, my Drew." Trish said, Drew kissing her lips, stepping back, his eyes meeting Lucas’.

"My love surrounds them both. They shall come to no harm." he said, all three nodding, looking at their soulmate.

Adam’s eyes met Trish’s.

"Here goes everything." he smiled, the man’s fingers touching the violet stone, Trish’s finger touching the pearl at the same moment.

The patio flooded with a white light, both consumed by it.

It lasted only a few moments, everyone turning their eyes from its brightness.

It disappeared as quickly as it came.

Everyone’s eyes went to the two standing in the same spots.

Trish’s eyes were filled with tears, the young woman sobbing, Andrew’s arms around her immediately.

Adam’s eyes were filled with tears, too, his two soulmates surrounding him, his head against Pierce’s chest, Usher rubbing his back.

"Are you alright, my love?" Andrew said, rubbing his wife’s back, Trish regaining her emotions.

"Oh, Drew! It was. . .it’s so unbelievable! They’re. . .their love. . .their beauty!" she cried, Lucas quietly staring at his sister.

Adam’s eyes raised, looking into Usher’s and Pierce’s pools of love.

"I love you both so much! I need only your love! We’re. . .we’re going to be so happy!" he cried, his men hugging him close.

"What did you see, Adam?" Pierce said, Adam’s head raising again, staring into his blue pools.

"He’ll have your and my blue pools. And he’ll be as beautiful as you, Ush." Adam cried, Usher staring at him.

"Who, Adam?" he said, Adam’s blue eyes going to Lucas’ violet.

"Can it be true, Luke? Can what I saw be real?" he softly said, Lucas nodding his head.

"The magic is real, Adam. It walks a path of realness and love."

Trish moved from Andrew’s arms, walking up to her brother, her arms going around him, hugging him tightly.

Lucas smiled, tears showing in his violet pools, his hands rubbing his sister’s back, Andrew standing beside them.

"I love you, Lucas. What you just showed me! What your love’s revealed!" she cried, Lucas parting from her, kissing her cheek.

"I take it the path widens for you. I will love them as I love my own."

She smiled, nodding, her eyes meeting Andrew’s.

"I don’t know how it’s going to happen, but we’re going to have twins, my love!" she said, Andrew looking shocked.

"What? That’s. . .that’s impossible!" he said, his arm going around her.

"I know, but in my heart what I saw has to be real. They were both so beautiful!" she said, Skyler now at her side.

"Twins, Trishy? Just like me! And Lucas!" she screamed with happiness, engulfing her friend, Andrew tearing up.

Lucas’ hand went to his shoulder.

"But the ultrasounds. . .they didn't show a second. . " he said, Lucas smiling at him.
"God’s love and magic can change any path." he smiled, Andrew staring at him.

His eyes widened, his arm going around Trish again, she staring at him.

"You need to sit down, my love. You’re having complete rest until the baby--I mean babies--come." he said, Trish smiling at him.

"You're going to have a couple of months of smothering love. I was ready to kill Finny that last month." Skyler smiled, Finn laughing, walking up to Trish, hugging her gently.

‘Two more beauties to add to Lucas’ love. Both will be blessed with it." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"Make that three."

Everyone’s eyes turned, staring at Adam.

The man left his soulmates' arms, walking up to Lucas.

The young man stared at him, seeing the emotion in Adam’s blue pools.

"How can this happen?" he softly said, Lucas smiling at him, his hand going to his friend’s shoulder.

"You three have a great love, my friends. Any child would be blessed to have your love as well. And he’ll have mine." Lucas said, Adam sobbing, hugging Lucas tightly.

"I can't believe it! He looked so like Usher!"

Lucas smiled, staring at the two shocked faces staring back at him from behind Adam.

"Technology has come a long way, my friends. Science can do some amazing things." Lucas said, Felix staring at him with awe.

"I believe you can do even more, Lucas." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"It’s Luke, Felix. I’m your friend, as you are now mine." he said, Felix smiling at him with wonder.

"I am blessed as well. My wife and I will take that friendship."

Lucas smiled, looking at Sheila.

"So many children coming forward. The houses of our love will be flowing with their smiling happiness." he smiled, Josh’s arm going around him.

"I'll say it again, babe. You are beyond amazing."

"I so have to get that tattooed somewhere." he smiled, everyone laughing.

Adam’s eyes met his soulmates’ pools, their arms going around him.

"We’re going to be fathers. That kid’s going to be so loved." Usher smiled, Pierce smiling at both men.

"And here I thought I was the youngster in the family."
Everyone laughed, the three men kissing.

Finn smiled, his eyes meeting Lucas’.

"So amazing." he said, Lucas smiling.


The evening progressed, a pool party going full swing, everyone enjoying themselves immensely.

Lucas met quietly with both the threesome of love and with Trish and Andrew, they seeing his giving love and happiness.

They sensed in their hearts that the visions they’d seen would come true.

Adam hugged Lucas again, the young man feeling his deep love and friendship.

"A few short months, Lucas! We’ve only felt your love for less than a year!" he sobbed, Lucas patting his back.

"You’ll feel it for all the years ahead, my friend. I’m looking forward to seeing your tattooed mature beauty." Lucas smiled, Adam lightly laughing.

"Might as well start now!" he smiled, his t-shirt leaving his body, his men smiling at his revealed beauty.

"Too many tats for my liking, but the body is damn fine!" Lucas smiled, Pierce running his hand across Adam’s chest.

"No worries, Luke. Ush and I love every one of them." he smiled, Usher smiling, their American flag t-shirts coming off as well, all three heading for the pool.

Lucas felt someone sit down beside him, snuggling into him, Lucas' arm going around him.

"Calmness, my son. They'll see your magical love as well."
Colton smiled, looking towards his foursome of love, all four in the pool with Justin and Lance.

"We'll let them simmer in the stewpot of love. Then we'll serve them your meal of love."

Colton smiled, kissing Lucas’ cheek.

"I love you, Dad." he smiled, Lucas smiling at him.

"I love you, Colton. And no worries, I'm bringing dessert."

Colton laughed, snuggling against Lucas, the young man smiling, his violet pools softly glowing green.

A few minutes later a smiling face stared down at the two, Lucas smiling up at Haras.

"Your other daddy misses you, my love." he said, Colton smiling up at his man.

"Then we have to keep our daddy happy, Hari." he smiled, rising to his feet, his shirt leaving his body, Haras smiling, joining hands with him, the two diving into the pool,  swimming towards Hemi, Enrique and Jonathan.

Lucas felt someone sit down beside him, his violet pools staring at the pool.

"I feel your love, Lancy. It's always watching and surrounding."

Lance kissed Lucas’ cheek, the young man turning and staring into his green pools.

"I feel your love simmering, my love. It’s been flowing all day." he said, Lucas smiling at him.

"No worries, my love. I'll have plenty for later."

Lance smiled, his arm going around Lucas.

"So what’s the last surprise?" he said, Lucas smiling, looking at him again.

"Blonde but so not stupid."

Lance smiled, their lips meeting.

"I feel the magic now too, I believe. I think your love's totally rubbing off on me."

His green pools went towards the pool.

"What are you and Colton cooking up?" he said, Lucas blushing.

Lance smiled, then lightly laughed.

"Okay, keep your secrets. But I feel the love from both of you. I think we're all going to be amazed."

Lucas smiled, looking out at the pool again.

"The waters of life can calm any soul. And mine is nearing its total calmness."

He smiled, kissing Lance again, the man feeling his total love.
"Let’s hit the water, beautiful. I think we both need HD’s hands on our asses."

Lance laughed, their shirts leaving their chests, both running towards the pool.


"He’s given no clue as to why we can’t be out there?" Finn said, his arms folded, the man relaxing beside his wife on a couch in the living room.

"No, Finny. He said he needed us all to leave the backyard." Skyler said, Trish smiling at her friends.

"I think we’re about to see the next surprise." she said, Andrew kissing her lips.

"I don’t think I can take any more." he said, everyone laughing.
Everyone was seated around the living room.

Jonathan and Haras were handing out drinks, everyone relaxing around the room.

Lucas had asked everyone to go into the house just before eight, the night now descending on the backyard and house.

"I bet he’s planned fireworks." Chris said, Piney wrapped in his arms.

"Maybe like last year. They were so beautiful." Lance said, Justin kissing his lips, the two seated with Josh.

The only ones missing from the living room were Lucas and Colton.

"It must be something magical. Our Colton is in on it." Haras said, the young Egyptian sitting down in Enrique’s lap, Jonathan now in Hemi’s.

"The man never stops surprising us." Alain said, Harry kissing his cheek, snuggled in his lap.

"His love never ends." Josh said, everyone smiling at him.

"You three have its totality." Adam said, Josh smiling at him.

"What did you see really, Adam?" Lance asked, Adam smiling at his soulmates.

"I saw myself in a sunny room. I instantly recognized it as our sunroom back at our place. In my arms was a beautiful small infant, his face a soft black, his eyes so blue. I knew in a heartbeat that I was holding our child. My Pierce’s, my Usher’s and my child. We were all there together. We were a family of love. I know in my heart I’ve seen our future." he said, Usher rubbing his back, Pierce’s arm around him.

"It’s a future we all will love." he said, Adam smiling at his husbands.

"That man’s so amazing. I still don’t totally understand what I feel from him. It’s like being bathed in his love. As if he’s constantly with me." he said, Josh smiling at him.

"He's blessed you with his true friendship, Adam. We all see that he regards you as a dear friend. We all love him and you. We trust you both completely."

"We all do." Usher said, Adam smiling.

"We all have our loves. His just runs through all of us."

Everyone agreed, smiling.

"I'm so happy you all let me have you."

Everyone smiled, Lucas standing in the room’s doorway.

"All ready, Luke?" Finn said, Lucas smiling and seeing the sparkle in his and others' eyes.

"What a bunch of fans?! Come on Lukey, do your tricks!" Lucas smiled, everyone smiling at him.

"It’s not like that, Luke. We just look so forward to you amazing us." Finn said, Lucas winking at him.

"You and me, the broom closet. I'll amaze you deeply."

Alain laughed loudly, others joining him.

Finn blushed, Skyler kissing his cheek.

"You walk into his traps, babe. I may let him have you just to silence both of you."
Finn and Lucas both laughed, smiling at each other.

"What can we do to help, Luke?" Chris said, Piney nodding as well.

"That broom closet won’t hold us all." Lucas said, Finn laughing loudly, the two Chrises blushing.

"We meant with outside." Piney smiled, Lucas winking at him.

"Outside's finished. Colton's waiting for everyone out there. You can all go back into the night's beginning surprises. All, save four of you."

Everyone looking around, rising from their seats.

"What four, my love?" Justin said, Lucas smiling at him.

"Our foursome of love, naturally." Lucas said, looking at the four standing with hands joined.

Jonathan, Haras, Enrique and Hemi traded looks, Lucas smiling at all four.

"I need to talk to all four of you. My son's asked me for some advice and for some fatherly love."

"Is Colton alright?" Jonathan said, Lucas seeing the worry etching on his face.

"He’s fine. Or will be shortly. Please, everyone. The festivities await." he smiled, everyone nodding, beginning to head out of the living room.

Justin, Lance and Josh were the last three to leave, Lucas kissing each on the lips.

"We'll be out shortly. Once I've got the lions ready for the arena."

The four remaining looked at each other, Lucas’ soulmates quietly walking out of the room.

Lucas’ eyes went back to the four remaining, all four seeing the calmness and love shining in his violet pools.

"Please follow me, gentlemen. I have to get your manes brushed."

The four looked at each other, Jonathan walking up to Lucas.

"What's going on, Luke?"
Lucas smiled, kissing his cheek.

"Love, Jonah. Your Colton’s love." he smiled, the young man walking out of the room.

The four traded looks again, shrugging their shoulders, their hands joining again, all four walking out of the living room, following Lucas further into the house.


End of Chapter 204


And so the evening of patriotic love continues.

Lucas’ wandering paths are now shown.

And new visions of paternal love for the future shown as well.


What’s cooking outside in the darkness of the Fourth of July night?

What have Lucas and Colton done?


Lucas' soul moves everywhere.

Where now is he leading the foursome of love?


Lance seems to be zoning in on Lucas’ thoughts and feelings.

The closeness of our foursome of love is growing.

Josh feels his soulmate’s tiredness, Lance feels his flowing love.

And we all know what Justin likes to feel.



Onward the path moves.

I hopefully will post one more chapter before the holidays.

If not, warmest wishes for a festive Holiday Season!


Hugs, Angel.
