Author's Notes:

Hi there! This is my first time to write a story.. I actually wanted to write a long time ago, but I can never get my thoughts organized! Hopefully, this chapter is organized enough.

Standard disclaimers apply: if you aren't of legal age in the city/state/country where you are, then please don't read further! If you are offended by homosexuality, then please leave. This story will contain male-to-male intimacy and sex, although this will be a "slow" story, read: no sex on every chapter! So if that's what you are looking for, then please go look for another story.

This is my original work. This is also fiction; any resemblance to real life people and situations are purely coincidental. Please respect my rights as an author; don't engage in intellectual piracy.

I would love to hear from you! Comments and suggestions are very much welcome. Criticism will be accepted as well, but please be nice about it :)

I also love editing stories of other authors! If you are a writer and you need an editor/a second pair of eyes to look over your work, I would love to do it! You can reach me at riley.bolt at gmail dot com.

I hope you enjoy this one!

The Exchange Student - Chapter 4

by Riley

"Nice pla..." I didn't finish what I was saying, because Sebastian turned me around to face him, held my face with his hands, and kissed me as soon as he closed the door.

I was too stunned to react. I guess he realized it after a few seconds, because he stopped. He looked flushed and nervous.

"I'm sorry Ryan... I just couldn't take it anymore... I wanted to kiss you so bad, ever since the first time I saw you..." He was looking down at the floor, sweeping his hair back.

"Uhhh it's okay... I was just surprised..."

"Look Ryan, I like you. I know this sounds corny and cliché but I feel like I've known you for a long time... I feel this connection with you, and I hope you do too." He was looking at me intently, and I can see his sincerity in his eyes. This is it, no turning back.

"I like you too Sebastian... It's just that... I haven't done anything like this before, and I'm not really out to anyone... I'm afraid of what will happen if people found out..."

"Then let's keep us a secret for a while. I can't stand not being around you. You're so cute and funny, especially when you blush," he said while grinning.

And that did it. I blushed.

"See? You're so cute right now I wanna kiss you again." And he did.

This time, I was able to reciprocate. I was a bit nervous because seriously, I haven't kissed anyone in my life (except for my parents of course, and that wasn't on the lips, eww!), and I was afraid that he'll think I'm a bad kisser. Up until now my hands were at my side, so when Sebastian moved his to my back, I mirrored him. It felt nice holding him. His body is really firm, I can get addicted to this.

I stopped because I felt out of breath. I wasn't even breathing through my nose the whole time. What a noob. He pressed our foreheads together, and started caressing the back of my neck. I felt goosebumps all over.

"Do you wanna see the rest of my pad?"

I blushed again because deep inside, I wanted to keep on kissing. "Yeah, sure."

He gave me the tour. It wasn't very long, since he only had a living room, dining/kitchen, laundry room, and his bedroom and bathroom. The place was small, but it was decorated nicely, and was actually luxurious. He had a study desk in the bedroom, and his laptop was on it. He had an entertainment system in the living room, and a smaller TV in his bedroom. I also saw a electric guitar leaning against the wall.

"Cool... So do you own this place or are you renting it?"

Suddenly, he looked sad. He looked like he was deep in thought.

"Hey, what is it? Was it something I said? Sorry if my question was personal..."

"No, no, it's not your fault. I just miss home. We own this place. My, uhh, parent's bought it when I got accepted in the exchange student program."

"Oh, okay." I wanted to ask him about his parents because he seemed to hesitate, but I didn't want to be too nosey.

"Sorry, I'm not being a good host, do you want anything to drink? Water, juice, soda?"

"Thanks, water would be good, but I'll go with you."

We walked to his kitchen and got me a glass of water. He took a can of soda for himself. He also took out a bag of chips from one of the cabinets.

"So do you wanna go straight to doing homework or can we hang for a while?"

It's amazing how casual we were being, when minutes ago we were kissing breathlessly. "Let's watch some TV first." I said and smiled at him.

He smiled back, took my hand, and led the way to the living room. We sat down at the sofa, which was really cozy because it only seated two and we were really close.

We were just watching silently for some minutes, and then he spoke.

"So... You've never really been with a guy before?"

Like clockwork, I blushed. "Yeah... Sorry..."

"What are you being sorry for? I think it's cute... Plus, I feel special for being your first kiss." He was caressing my hair again. I just smiled, I couldn't really think of anything to say, and I'll just probably stutter.

"I hope I'll be your first in other things too." He was giving me that naughty-shit-eating grin.

Oh my God, that did it. I can literally feel my face heating up. But I was nervous too. "I uhh... I don't think I'm ready for those yet..."

"Hey, it's okay. I wasn't pressuring you or anything. I just wanted to make you blush." He smiled, and looked apologetic.

I gave him a light punch in his arm. He, however, put his left arm around me, and pulled me closer to him. He then pressed lightly on my head, signaling that he wanted me to put my head on his shoulder so I did. This is nice, I could really get used to this.



My phone kept on ringing, because I refused to pick it up, and I haven't fully woken up yet. Sebastian was spooning me from behind, I didn't want to wake him up. But it kept on ringing so I gave up and picked it up. I was so sleepy I didn't bother looking at the caller ID.


I was surprised by the shouting voice, I barely recognized it, so this time, I looked at the caller. It was Luke.


"Where the hell are you dude? We'll be late for school!"

Oh shit! I forgot, it was my turn to drive both of us to school.

"Sorry Luke, I stayed over at Sebastian's and I..."

"Well, thanks a lot for telling me in advance!"

I didn't have time to explain further, because he hung up on me. That's weird. I know I've never been late in picking him up, but it's not like this is a big deal. Heck, I haven't even taken a bath yet, Sebastian and I will probably be late in going to school. Normally I would be nervous, but getting to spend the night with Sebastian really made up for it.

"Who was that?"

"Luke. I forgot that it was my turn to drive us to school."

"Oh... Was he mad?"

"Yeah, which is weird, because he never got mad about things, what more me not being able to drive him to school."

"He probably woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Hey, did you sleep okay?" He was smiling but his eyes were still semi-closed.

"Yeah... Thanks."

"For what?"

"For not pressuring me to do anything... And for having me over."

"You're welcome. And if I had my way, you'd stay over everyday."

"Ha-ha! Time to get up sleepy head! We'll be late for school!"

"You go on ahead and take a bath, I'll catch some more z's."


Thankfully, we weren't late. I had time to stop by my locker. Stella was still there.

"Where have you been?!" Stella asked. She kinda looked freaked out.

"I stayed over at Sebastian, we woke up late. Hehehe. What's up?"

"So you haven't heard the news?"

"No, what news?"

"Maria broke up with Lucas!"


Hey everyone!

Sorry for being such a big disappointment. I know I said I'll try updating every week. So far I'm failing miserably! I hope you like this chapter though. It's short, I'll try and make the next ones longer. Again, comments are welcome! I love reading your emails, and I love replying! xoxo,
