boys had been home a week, and still there was no word from the record
company concerning their CD or the tour. Greg had been nervous about
meeting Isaac and Jeremy's parents, but they had hit it off right away,
and Greg felt very much at home after a few days.
and Mrs. Wilson had had a long talk with Isaac once they were settled,
and though Isaac wasn't quite ready to reveal his true feelings for
Greg, he made it clear that they had bonded rather quickly and were
good friends already.
think there's more to it than that," Mrs. Wilson said as she and her
husband climbed into bed that night. I've seen that look before, and
though the last time it was directed at a girl, it's still the same
Wilson sighed, "I've suspected for a while that both our boys may have
experimented with other boys, perhaps even each other, but I would
never have guessed Isaac would be the one to fall for another boy."
as my father used to say, there are two things you can't change, taxes,
and who you fall in love with. It isn't what I would have chosen for
our son, but I have to admit if he had to fall for a boy, Greg is a
good choice. It's obvious he feels the same way about our son from the
way he treats him and that look in his eyes that's identical to the one
you think we're doing the right thing? Letting them be together when
inevitably they will have to separate?"
both be going off to college next year, who know what the future will
hold for them?"
just don't want our son to get hurt."
do I dear, but I think it would hurt him more to be apart from Greg.
We'll just have to trust them and see where things lead. I do think we
need to have a talk with Greg's parents though. I'm not sure they see
what we do, and though its not our place to tell them, it would be nice
to know how they feel about all this."
leave that up to you dear, perhaps you can call his mother. Moms seem
to have the best take on these things," he chuckled.
mothers recognize love, if that's what you mean."
dear, now how about showing me a little love," he said nuzzling her
thought you were tired."
that tired dear," he said pulling her in for a kiss.
few doors away Greg and Isaac lay in his queen size bed doing some
talking of their own.
have a really nice family," Greg said rubbing Jeremy's chest slowly,
causing his nipples to become erect.
know, and I think they suspect we're more than friends. My mom and dad
gave me the third degree, but I think I managed to confuse them...for
Do you think they would be upset if they knew...you know? That we're
more than just friends?'
don't know, we've never really talked about this stuff before. I'm not
too worried though, they are both very open-minded. They accept Jaden
and Aidan as they are and I've never heard them say a bad thing about
anyone, least of all gays."
I can't imagine them being prejudiced, considering..."
they're black?" Isaac chuckled.
I didn't mean that," Greg said blushing, though that was his
They are, I am, Jeremy is, and I know you're cool with that. Its okay
to say it, we're not that sensitive."
don't think of you as a color," Greg said softly, "I just think of you
as...well, as you, but I do love the color of your skin, its so...so
beautiful compared to my white skin."
but I like your skin just fine. In fact I'd like to rub my skin all
over your skin now, if you think that would be okay."
that sounds hot. I can't believe I'm actually doing this stuff with
another boy now. I was so unsure of myself and now...now, I know
exactly what I want, and what I want is you."
I want you, and we've just got to figure out some way to stay together."
know, but I have a feeling things will work out."
short distance away, just beyond the bathroom that they shared, Jeremy
was settling down for the evening. He had a lot on his mind these days,
balancing his personal life with his career, keeping Deedee happy and
now the thing with Isaac and Greg. He liked Greg a lot but it was still
a shock for him that Isaac, of all people should fall in love with a
boy. He had always thought of his older brother as the straightest
member of their gang, but he also understood the lure of boy on boy sex.
it just that? He wondered. Was it just a physical thing, or were the
two truly in love? He'd seen the look in Isaac's eyes, the one his
mother had seen that first day at the airport, and he had to admit it
was a lot like the look in his own eyes when he thought of Dee.
sighed and willed himself to sleep, but sleep would not come. He
thought about Dee and the welcoming home kiss she had given him and he
smiled. They didn't have a place or the privacy to do much
that day, but they had made up for it the following day at her place.
They'd come pretty close to going all the way, but Jeremy knew Dee was
saving that for the man of her dreams, and he backed off. She'd
looked a little surprised, but hadn't mentioned it until later.
did you stop?" she asked as they lay cuddling following an intense
love-making session which had resulted in multiple orgasms for both of
know you're saving that?" Jeremy said, knowing exactly what she meant.
I'm saving it for the boy I love, and hello...you're that boy."
am?" Jeremy said surprised by this turn of events.
I don't mean that we're like always going to be together, or get
married or anything, but I was saving it for someone I really cared
I care about you a lot."
feel the same way," Jeremy said nuzzling her neck, "but I don't want to
make you do anything you don't want to."
want to," she said simply, "I've been thinking about it a lot lately
and I want you to be the one...uh, the one to take my virginity."
don't know what to say. Are you sure about this?"
very sure. Unless you don't want to..."
Dee, I love you so much. I just want to make you happy and do
what you want, and if that's what you want..."
have to want it too..."
trust me...I do," he chuckled, "but I can wait. You're worth waiting
need to wait, I'm ready."
not now. I want it to be special," Jeremy insisted, "I want us to have
time and a nice place to do it."
romantic," Dee said kissing Jeremy sweetly, "I'm ready when you are, so
I'll leave it up to you to work out the details."
give it some thought, but right now we should get dressed, your mom
will be home soon."
was just coming out of the bathroom when his phone signaled he had a
hey whats up

nice, wish I was there
what would u do

that lover boy?" Aidan asked as Jaden threw down his phone.
checking up on me," he laughed.
sure, Zak does the same."
of Zak, I saw Jason and Tommy yesterday and they looked really happy."
Tommy is a cool dude and he's really caused Jason to change for the
sweet love. Hey, ever wonder why we know so many gay boys? I mean its
like half the guys we know are gay."
it is weird. I wonder if its just that we attract them cause they sense
we're the same way."
be, hey...you up for some fooling around," Jaden said suddenly, raising
an eyebrow and grinning.
your bed or mine?" Aidan laughed.
cause when we're done I'm gonna crash. You can stay if you want though.
I love snuggling."
promising," Aidan said, "let me get a shower. Don't start without me."
days later Brad Turner called with good news. The CD was finished and
ready to be burned, and distributed, and the tour would kick off in
Kansas City July 4th. From there they would fly to Tulsa, Oklahoma,
then Oklahoma City, Dallas, then Houston, Atlanta, New York, Chicago
would be a short but grueling tour, and would jump start the CD's sales
as well as sales on Itunes and GooglePlay. The boys were excited but
apprehensive. This was a lot different than the gig they'd played in SF
and they knew it wouldn't be easy. Still they were excited
looking forward to it and all that it brought.
days before the first scheduled tour date the boys met at the Wilson's
home for a celebration party hosted by the parents. Besides the band
members, Zak and Jimmy, Dee, and a few of their closest friends were
present, though only a few would be sleeping over.
once Dee was being allowed to sleep over, but of course she wouldn't be
sleeping with the boys, but in the upstairs guest room instead. There
was pizza and finger food, all sorts of sweet treats, punch and soda,
and the adults kept their presence to a minimum so as to allow the kids
to have fun.
party was held in the Wilson's game room, and there was pool and video
games, air hockey, and a sound system blasting music that the kids had
hand picked. Later the group would take up instruments and give a
sampling of the music they had planned for the tour, but for
they were busy mingling and being teenagers.
is an awesome party," Chris said as he snarfed down a chicken finger,
"Last time I was at a party this cool it was at my house when we were
about 12," he chuckled.
those were good times," Jaden said, "I seem to remember some sort of
truth or dare thing and you getting naked," he added
good times," Chris said blushing, then changing the subject he said,
"So, you guys are gonna be famous now, what's that like?"
yet, but I think we can handle it okay. I mean I don't want
go to our heads or anything. I want to still be me. After all this was
really Aidan's thing, I just sort of got caught up in it."
you like it, right?"
way cooler than I thought it would be, but I still feel out of place I
dude, you're awesome."
I appreciate that, but I'm not buying you a Ferrari," he laughed.
how about a BMW then?"
see," Jaden said then put his arm around his old friend, "You know,
I've missed your ugly puss."
I don't have a puss," Chris laughed, "but I've missed you too. Don't
forget me when you're famous."
very thing had been weighing on Jaden's mind lately. How would fame and
fortune effect his relationship with his friends and peers? He didn't
want to wind up being stuck up or snobbish, like some of the rich kids
at school, but he knew things changed when you were cast into the
what's up?" Jimmy asked as he joined the two.
reminiscing," Jaden said, "Chris is actually one of my oldest friends."
well...I know that," Jimmy said, "I used to torture him too," he
I'd forgotten what an asswipe you used to be," Chris laughed, "I guess
the love of a good man changed all that."
you should try it," Jimmy chuckled.
not me, I like the ladies. My girl Emily is the bomb. She's so sweet."
pretended to swoon, "Oh Em, love you sooo much."
up dick wad, you know what I mean," Chris said, but he was smiling.
love is grand, come on, let's go get some punch."
I think tonight is the night," Jeremy said as the two sat together on
the sofa away from prying eyes and ears.
how, I'll be stuck up there in the guest room while you boys are down
me worry about that. Once my folks are asleep they don't stir till
morning. As soon as things settle down here, I'll come up and we can be
together most of the night."
Jeremy, but...what about protection?"
got it covered. Isaac hooked me up. I got lube and condoms. We're all
set. This will be so special."
Jeremy, I love you so much," she said leaning in and kissing him on the
love you too babe, and tonight we'll seal the deal."
romantic," she laughed, "it sounds like some business venture."
sorry I just meant that we'll be sharing something very special,
something that neither of us has ever shared with anyone else."
romantic," she said melting into his arms, "I love you so much."
love you too, and I want this to be perfect for you, for us."
will, I just know it.
the Wilsons watched a movie on Netflix and tried not to worry about
what was going on downstairs. They knew they were taking a huge risk
letting Dee stay over, but her mother had approved it, and they
supposed they would just have to trust their son, or at least
he was careful. They knew the two had had ample opportunity to go all
way, and if they hadn't yet, then maybe they felt they weren't ready
didn't worry so much about the boys, after all, boys couldn't get
pregnant, but they were keenly aware that there were risks there too.
What did they really know about Greg? Was he promiscuous? Was he STD
free, and for that matter, what about Isaac? They'd preached safe sex
to their boys, but had always assumed the sex would be with girls. It
was a bit confusing and disturbing, but after all, a parent could only
do so much.
the band was getting tuned up and ready to perform for their friends. A
quiet fell over the basement and then on the count of three the boys
began. They kept the numbers lively at first, and before long there was
swaying and a little dancing going on, Dee encouraging the boys to join
her on the makeshift dance floor.
they moved on to one of their love ballads and the dancing became
slower and Dee, Zak, and Jimmy moved closer to watch their lovers
perform and imagine that the words were being sung just for them.
friends had known all along that the boys were talented, but what they
saw before them that night was a well polished group who performed
flawlessly, and it was obvious they thoroughly enjoyed every moment of
ended the set with a Queen song, I Want to Break Free, and the small
group of their friends went crazy. Most had recently gone to see
Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie based on the band and the life of Freddie
Mercury, and they thought the boys version of the song was excellent.
round of applause and cat calls filled the room as the boys finished
the number, but despite their friends' pleas, they decided there would
be no encore.
don't want to work the whole night," Jaden groused, "After all, this is
our party and we want to have some fun.
Mr. and Mrs. Wilson had been listening to the music from below, and
even muted by the distance, they thought the music sounded very
boys played pool, air hockey, video games, and ate till they were full,
then watched movies on the big screen TV as the night wound down. A few
of the guests who weren't invited to the sleepover began to filter out
after that, and soon it was just the boys and a few close personal
friends. Around eleven Mrs. Wilson came down to show Dee to her room
and after she and Jeremy kissed goodnight Mrs. Wilson led her up the
know you'd rather be down there with Jeremy," Mrs. Wilson chuckled,
"but we promised your mother that you would have your own room."
know, thank you Mrs. Wilson. Jeremy and I understand. I'm just glad I
got to go to the party and to stay over."
the bathroom is down the hall to the right, and if you need anything
room is just beyond it on the other side of the hall. Sleep well dear,"
she said giving Dee a kiss on the cheek.
Wilson had become very fond of Dee and thought she was a lovely and
sweet girl, and she hoped that she and Jeremy would be together for a
long time. She knew they were both very young and that eventually they
might drift apart or find someone else, but while it lasted she thought
their relationship was very good for both of them.
Jeremy sat on the couch yawning and watching the movie with the others
who were spread out around the room. Some were already claiming their
spaces on the air mattresses on the floor but Jaden and Jimmy sat next
to him on the couch.
do you slip upstairs to be with your woman?" Jaden teased.
do you think I'm gonna slip up to her room?" Jeremy asked with
that's what I'd do. I mean, damn, even I know once your rents are
asleep they never stir out of their room."
do you think I need to be with Dee all the time?"
you love the girl, that's why. I guarantee that if it was Jimmy up
as soon as your rents started snoring I'd be at his door."
we'll see," Jeremy said without giving away too much, "at least I know
you guys won't rat me out."
no bro, we'd help you in any way we could."
an air mattress behind the couch, and out of sight of the others, Greg
and Isaac lay talking softly waiting for the place to quiet down and
the lights to be extinguished. They were patient, but it was hard to
keep their hands to themselves after all the nights they'd shared.
friends are nice, I never really had friends like that. They're very
accepting, even the straight ones."
cause they knew us before we figured things out I guess. Its
not to like someone you already know. And its not like some of them
haven't done a bit of fooling around too. Jaden could tell you stories
about the parties they used to have at Chris's house."
guess, but its nice anyway. I'm starting to feel more at home here than
I did in my own home, my own life."
stay here," Isaac said daring to lean in and kiss the boy on the cheek.
wish," Greg sighed, "If only I could."
maybe your dad would let you go on the tour with us. That would give us
till school starts at least."
think he might, since he can't be there for every date. Maybe I could
convince him to let me go and report back to him after every concert."
and maybe he could pay you," Isaac chuckled.
doubt that, but I'm sure he would pay my expenses so you guys wouldn't
I don't care about that. I'll personally pay just to have you stay with
me. I want to take care of you forever."
Isaac," Greg said near tears, "I love you so much and it
scares me sometimes."
Isaac said soothingly.
if I ever lost you...I'm not sure I could go on."
don't lose me," Isaac said taking him in his arms, "we were meant
to be together, ebony and ivory," he said chuckling.
you worry...about what your folks will think if I keep hanging around?"
folks trust me and they already love you, so what's to worry about? One
thing you have to understand is, my folks are like the most open-minded
people I know. Well, maybe the twins' folks come close, but being
black, my folks understand first hand what prejudice is all about."
is nice," Greg said changing the subject quickly, "Do you think she and
Jeremy have been...um, intimate?"
"Oh yeah, but so far they haven't gone all the way. Dee says
she's saving that for someone very special."
frowned, "So she's saying that Jeremy isn't special?"
I guess I said it wrong. They're very close, maybe even in love, but
losing your virginity as a girl is way different than when a boy does
it. She just wants to make sure she gives that gift to someone she
really cares about. Oh hell, that didn't sound right either. Its hard
to explain I guess."
kind of see, I mean I guess I gave myself to you pretty quick, but I
was so sure that you were the one..."
I'll make sure you never regret that."
you guys," Jaden said peeking over the back of the couch, "Why don't
you go up to Isaac's room? We'll be fine down here."
what do you think Greg?"
don't want to take you away from your friends..."
be fine," Jaden laughed, "but if you stay its no big deal. Cause I can
guarantee that there is gonna be some lovin' going on down here, right
lover boy?" he said hugging Jimmy to him.
about the others?" Isaac chuckled, "not everyone here is a couple."
them fend for themselves. They know how we are, everyone that was
invited to the sleepover knows the score."
stay or go?" Greg asked looking to Isaac for guidance.
hate to leave my friends down here alone, so I think we'll stay. If
that's fine," Greg said smiling.
move your mattress around here then and let's push this couch out of
the way. We're gonna play truth or dare."
groaned, "I might've known," but he did as Jaden suggested, and soon
they were sitting in a circle with the others, eager for the game to
excused himself just after midnight, and after stopping at the bathroom
to pee and tidy up a bit, he quietly slipped up the stairs to the main
floor. He listened closely to make sure no one was stirring, but he was
familiar enough with his folks habits to know they were probably dead
to the world by now.
he slipped up the stairs to the second floor, staying near to the wall
avoid any squeaking of the stairs, and once he was at the top he stopped
again to listen. Satisfied all was quiet on the home front, he emerged
into the upper hall and headed toward the door to the guest room.
was staring at the ceiling, her heart beating especially fast, and her
thoughts flying all over the place. What if they got caught? What if it
hurt? What if it wasn't good for Jeremy? What if? What if?
was so consumed with her thoughts that she was barely aware of the door
opening slowly, and when she finally noticed the half naked form of
Jeremy moving toward her she cried out softly.
shit, you scared me," she said clutching her heart.
you expecting someone else?" he teased.
I was just...um, thinking, that's all."
good with this? You haven't changed your mind have you?"
not unless you have."
Jeremy said sliding in beside Dee and hugging her to him, "I
what you want. I told you I can wait as long as I have to, but I think
we both are ready for this."
think so too," she said relaxing some, "Did you bring the...um, stuff?"
the nightstand," he said grinning, "I slipped it up here while mom and
dad were busy in the kitchen." Then jumping up again he said, "Oh, I
almost forgot," he said as he dug two candles from the drawer. Then
lighting a match he lit both candles and sat them on either side of the
bed. "There, that's more like it. Sort of romantic...right?"
Jeremy, it's perfect," she said sounding very emotional.
told you I wanted it to be special."
well...then...um, how do we do this?"
let me handle this," Jeremy said calmly. Of the two he was worlds ahead
in experience, even if most of his experience had been with
kiss me," she said softly, "and tell me how much you love me."
I do. I love you more than you will ever know, and I want this to be
special for both of us. Just relax and let me make love to you."
started slowly, kissing and making out as usual, and when the clothes
came off this time they felt as if something had changed between them.
Their senses were heightened, and every stroke, every touch, seemed to
bring pleasure they had never known possible.
had been hard from the moment he'd climbed into bed with Dee, but now it
seemed he was even harder if that was possible.
think it's time to slip the raincoat on," Jeremy teased, "Do you want
to do it?"
I've seen it done in videos and I think I can handle that."
reached over and grabbed the small bag containing the condoms and lube
and fished out a Magnum and handed it to Dee.
is it, this is really it," she said as she ripped open the package.
Then holding the condom in her small hand she fumbled with it till she
figured out which was the right end. Then placing it against the head
Jeremy's rampant cock she began to unroll it until it covered all of
his cock and the unrolled end lay against his well trimmed pubes.
babe," Jeremy said smiling, "I practiced some, but you got it perfect
well...thanks. So...now are we gonna do it?"
yet, let's kiss some more and then..."
then was when Jeremy went down on Dee and gave her three orgasms in a
row with his talented tongue. After that Dee was wet and horny and
ready for anything and she found herself begging for Jeremy to enter
make love to me now. I love you so much and I want to feel you inside
one more thing," Jeremy said retrieving a thick terry cloth towel from
beside the bed, "Raise up and I'm gonna put this under you, just in

didn't want to leave any evidence on the sheets for his mother to find.
idea," Dee said, not quite as eager as before, but still determined
to give this gift to her man.
be gentle and if you want me to stop, just say so," Jeremy cooed, "but
I think we're both going to like this...a lot."
kissed as Jeremy rubbed his cock against Dee's swollen clit and once
again she became aroused and eager. Reaching down she guided Jeremy's
cock against her virgin hole and coaxed him inside.
spit and Dee's natural lubricant made lube unnecessary, and
the entry, though slow, was actually very easy. Dee had been mentally
preparing herself for this for some time and that was half the battle.
There was a little discomfort as the thin layer of skin broke, then
suddenly Jeremy was deep inside her and she had never felt so alive.
yes...yes," she gasped, "God that feels so good, make love to me. Make
me a woman," she said thrashing her head around on the pillow.
was caught up in his own lust and when he saw the look of need and want
in his lover's face he began to move with purpose.
shit, I never knew it could feel this good," he gasped, "I love you so
much," he said bending down to kiss her as tears stung his eyes.
know, it's like we're part of each other and I never want you to stop
what you're doing. I want you inside me forever."
baby but I don't know how long I can last. You feel so good."
can do it as many times as you want," she said lustily, "Just
do it...harder, faster," she panted.
Jeremy's orgasm hit, it curled his toes and washed over him with such
intensity that he nearly blacked out. He'd had his share of powerful
orgasms, especially lately, but nothing had ever come close to this one.
God, oh shit, that was intense," he said nuzzling Dee's neck as his
chest heaved with effort to provide air to his ravaged body.
know, when can we do it again?" she said excitedly.
I gotta rest first, but soon. For now can we just kiss and cuddle."
skinned off the condom, wiped himself clean, and was relieved to see
there was very little blood. He'd read that some girls bled like a
stuck hog, but not his Dee, and in fact she had never felt so good down
there as she did at that moment.
time they made out for a long time
before Dee rolled a fresh condom on Jeremy's throbbing cock, and began
once again. This
time they took it slow and made it last, but one thing was sure, both
of them loved this new way of expressing their love, and they were
looking forward to more of it.
the truth or dare game had wound down and the boys were fading fast.
Several of the stag boys were already asleep and Zak and
were curled up together like two pups just enjoying each other's warmth

but not sleep," Jimmy said raising an eyebrow.
come on then. I need my beauty sleep, so let's make it quick."
right," Jimmy giggled, "I know you, once you get started we'll go all

the numbers on the microwave, the only sources of light. Somewhere
nearby one of the boys snored softly and a giggle was heard
the same direction.
could feel Isaac's hard cock pressing into his side as they lay cuddling
and his own cock was just as hard. He never felt rushed or desperate
with Isaac though, and their lovemaking was always slow and
Isaac began nuzzling his neck he sighed contentedly, and when Isaac's
hand found his hardness he shivered with desire. Then reaching for
cock, Greg stroked it gently and felt the wetness there.
want you inside me," Greg whispered as he nuzzled Isaac's ear.
babe, whatever you want," Isaac said sounding excited, then spooning up
to Greg he pushed his boxers and shorts down to free his

Isaac spooned up to his backside and rubbed his hard wet cock against
the twin pillows. He entered easily and quickly, and both boys cried out
softly as he bottomed out.
giggle from Jaden's pallet said that they'd been heard, but Isaac
didn't bother to reply. Instead he began to slowly move in and out of
Greg's hot tight guts, bringing pleasure to them both.
far away Jaden and Jimmy were engaging in some fun of their own, but
nothing quite as intense. Laying head to toe they were engaged in a
spirited 69, very much aware of what Greg and Isaac were up to. The
thought of what they were doing was a definite turn on, and Jimmy and
Jaden were thoroughly enjoying the whole scene.
and Aidan couldn't help but become aroused as they lay snuggling and
listening to the sounds of sex coming from nearby, and before long they
were engaged in some sex play of their own.
the room Chris lay listening, his hand working his hard teenage cock,
and for once he wished he was gay and had a willing partner. He sighed,
he guessed he loved his girlfriend Em, but they had never done much
beyond kissing and cuddling. For once he thought his gay friends might
have the right idea after all.
awake," someone whispered from the other side of him.
yeah," he whispered back. He recognized the voice as that of Sid, who
from all accounts was totally straight and a real pussy hound.
so horny right now," he hissed, "I can smell the sex in the air."
chuckled, he understood what Sid was saying, but he was unsure about
how to reply.
beatin' off?" Sid chuckled.
Chris said still unsure what Sid was up to.
he felt his air mattress move as Sid moved up beside him. He lay down
facing Chris and their faces were so close he could smell the pizza on
that time at your place when we played truth or dare and we had to jerk
each other off? he said softly, his words coming quickly and
that was bogus," Chris said, not wanting to sound too enthusiastic.
Sid asked. This wasn't the response he had hoped for, "It was just fun,
messing around, nothing serious. We were all good sports about it."
I just meant that everyone was pretending not to like it, but they
sure didn't mind spunking on the floor."
that one kid, what was his name, that skinny kid that sucked dick?"
yeah...that was weird, cause he didn't seem the least bit gay, and now
he has a girlfriend and all..."
do we, but we still jerk off, right?" Sid chuckled.
a lot," Chris admitted. He was pretty sure he knew where this was
headed, but he didn't want to lead the way. This was Sid's rodeo and he
was just along for the ride.
could...you know, help each other out," Sid said so lowly that Chris
could barely hear him. He could almost smell Sid's fear and
uncertainty, and he knew it took a lot of nerve to admit that
wanted to touch another boy and be touched in return.
like old times," Chris chuckled, "I guess it would be okay, but it
stays between us, okay?"
absolutely," Sid said enthusiastically, "No one's business but ours,
isn't that what we alway said those other times?"
no big deal, just like jerking off..."
the darkness they moved closer and found each other's hardness. Their
touch was tentative and gentle at first, but soon their urgency for
release took over and the heat built. At first the only touching was
their hands on each other's dicks, but as they became more aroused they
moved closer together, rubbing their feet together and eventually
hard to say who initiated the kiss, but soon they were kissing deeply
and wetly as they worked each other's cock furiously. There was no
doubt who initiated what happened next, as Sid broke the kiss and slid
down Chris's body and took his cock in his mouth.
as if having second thoughts about his brashness, he pulled off and
looked up at Chris, "Is this okay?
Chris said taking a ragged breath, "I'll do you when you're done."
smiled and took the next logical step, flipping around to give Chris
access to his cock, and soon they were engaged in a passionate 69.
the room, Jimmy and Jaden were resting and watching and listening to
the two with a smile. Jaden never ceased to be amazed at how easily
boys, even supposedly straight ones, could be lured into boy on boy
He supposed that deep inside all boys and men had those primal urges
for release, and it was easy to play it off to just being horny and of
moaning and smacking attracted the interest of the others as well, and
though the two had vowed to keep it just between them, everyone in the
room now knew that Chris and Sid had engaged in sex.
several orgasms each, the boys finally settled down for good, and sleep
overtook them. Upstairs Dee and Jeremy lay entwined having just
finished their third round of love making, and both were a bit sore now
and content to just sleep.
they slept so well that Jeremy didn't wake in time to slip
downstairs before his parents arose the next morning.
Wilson, always a good host, decided to peek in on their guest and see
if she had slept well, but what she saw as she opened the door was
indeed a shock. The sheets were in disarray and Jeremy's ass was in
plain view as well as one of Dee's legs and her perky breast.

what?" he said as he started the coffee maker.
Jeremy spent the night with Dee in the guest room. They're still up
there snuggled up like two newlyweds."
well..." he said, suddenly at a loss for words. He had half suspected
that Jeremy wouldn't be able to resist the temptation, but he figured
he'd be smart enough not to get caught. Pulling himself together he
smiled, "What did you expect dear? We made it so easy for them. I just
thought he'd be more careful and not get caught."
knew he'd do this?" she asked accusingly.
a horny teenage boy and the temptation was just too great. I just hope,
he was safe...and sanitary."
Wilson looked ill suddenly, then she seemed to pull herself together.
thought it would be Isaac that we had to worry about," she laughed,
"not my baby..."
not a baby anymore dear, he's almost 15 and more man than boy, and he
and Dee are very close, maybe in love. It was inevitable that they
express their love in a physical way."
she said softly, "I'm as open minded as any parent, but I guess when
it comes right down to it, I'm still not ready for this."
whether we're ready or not, the cat is out of the bag," Mr. Wilson
chuckled, "The question is, what do we do about it? Do we address the
situation or just pretend we don't know?"
dad..." it was Jeremy, fully dressed now, as was Dee, who held his hand
as they entered the kitchen.
have something to tell you."
guess that answers your question," Mrs. Wilson said to her husband,
"Sit down you two and let's talk."
the boys were just beginning to stir and when they realized Jeremy was
still gone they began to worry.
I hope he didn't get caught," Jaden said frowning.
he probably just got up early or something," Isaac said stretching.
He'd slept well, but the air mattress was far from comfortable
was a little stiff.
taking turns at the bathroom the boys got dressed and headed upstairs
in search of food. When they entered the kitchen however, what they saw
sent them scrambling back to the safety of the basement.
shit, they got caught," Jaden said, "I recognized that look on your
mom's face. She knows, they both do. Oh man, we'll be lucky if they
don't make Jeremy miss the tour."
folks would never do that. If...and I'm still not sure that's what
happened, but if they did get caught, my folks will give them a good
talking to, but they will be cool about it."
wonder if they'll tell Dee's mom?" Aidan said looking worried.
don't know, they might make Jeremy tell her," Isaac said, "that's how
my folks think."
damn. Imagine that conversation, uh, excuse me ma'am, but I took your
daughter's virginity while she was sleeping over at my house. Sorry
about that, but you know how we horny guys are?" Jaden giggled.
not funny," Aidan said, but he was grinning, "Besides we don't know if
they went all the way."
pretty sure they did," Isaac said looking sheepish, "I bought Jeremy
condoms and lube for last night."
shit, she finally gave it up," Jaden said, earning a dirty look from
are you guys so worried about?" Chris said from where he and Sid stood
at the pool table
playing a game of poison, "If they used condoms she ain't gonna get
mom and dad will feel bad that it happened at our house while they were
supposed to be watching out for her."
not like he raped her or anything, right?" Sid said, "She wanted it
too. Why is it always the guy who's in trouble?"
Aidan said throwing a couch cushion at the boy, "That's a typical macho
sayin'...what did they expect? It was like dangling bait in front of a
man, you got a real way with words," Chris chuckled, "No wonder you
can't get laid."
says I can't get laid. I do okay," Sid mumbled.
didn't know you were so experienced," Chris laughed, giving Sid an

boys tried not to show the apprehension and fear on their faces when
entered the dining room where Mrs. Wilson, Jeremy and Dee sat drinking
hot chocolate as if all was right with the world.
they didn't get caught after all, Isaac hoped, or maybe they talked
their way out of it.
I think we'll be going out for breakfast this morning," Mr. Wilson
said, "our treat. Mrs. Wilson just isn't prepared to cook for a small
army," he chuckled, "And since there are so many of you we will be
taking both cars. So figure out who rides with who and go ahead and get
situated, we'll be along shortly."
twins and their baes scurried to find a place in Mr. Wilson's SUV with
Sid and Chris joining them after some discussion. Jeremy, Dee, Isaac,
and Greg piled into their mom's mini-van and soon the group was off to
IHop for breakfast.
server sat them at a long table and delivered menus and took drink
orders then left the group to peruse the menus. Jeremy looked guarded,
but not worried as he sat beside Dee sharing a single menu and the
others didn't know what to make of the situation.
Of the group, Isaac knew best what was going on. If Jeremy and Dee had been
caught his folks wouldn't make a big deal of it in front of the others
and would try to act as natural as possible, but there would be
consequences of some kind, he was sure of that.
they finally had their food the light conversation that had been going
on ceased as they took their first few bites then resumed as before.
this time tomorrow you'll be packing and getting ready to fly out,
right guys?" Jimmy asked as he shoveled in a forkful of hash browns.
it's pretty exciting, but scary too. I mean it's not like when we flew
out to record the CD. We'll be flying in one day then flying out the
next, from one place to another. There will be endless rehearsing and
getting ready for the show and God only knows what can go wrong." Jaden
said voicing all of his fears here with some of the people he trusted
be fine," Mrs. Wilson said, "the tour manager and all the others are
experienced at this sort of thing, and you'll have your mother along to
watch out for your best interests."
me, I hope," Greg said speaking up, "I'm pretty sure my dad will let me
go along and watch over things since he can't be there for every
concert date. I'm going to call him as soon as we get back."
sounds like a good idea," Mr. Wilson said, "if he has any
then tell him to call us and we'll put in a good word for you."
I could go too," Jimmy teased.
and me," Zak giggled.
wish," Jaden said, "but I doubt we'd have much time to have any fun,"
then blushing he added, "You know, like going places and seeing stuff."
Wilson ignored the implications and smiled, "Yes, this certainly won't
be a fun filled trip like before. You will be working most of the time,
but I guess this will be a good chance to find out if this is the life
you want to choose."
don't doubt I want to make music," Aidan said sighing, "I just didn't
think I'd get this far this fast, none of us did."
we can't pass up this opportunity," Isaac said summing it all up for
them, " and even if we fall on our faces, I wouldn't pass up the chance
to do this for anything."
he's right," Jaden agreed, "It's worth a fortune in experience, not to
mention, we're going to make a lot of money," he added grinning.
well...there's that," Aidan said grinning, "We should be able to afford
any college we choose with what we'll earn from the CD and the tour."
dad will make sure you guys get every penny you deserve too," Greg
added, "He's a good manager and he takes his job seriously, plus he's a
good guy. He won't screw you over like some of the other agents would."
good to know," Isaac chuckled, "especially since we've become friends
Wilson gave the two a knowing look, but didn't comment.
the group had finished their food and while Mr. Wilson took care of the
bill, the others headed out to the parking lot. They dropped Chris and
Sid off at Chris's house and Jimmy and Zak, as well as the twins, off
at the Reynolds' home, then headed back to their house.
knew something was up, but he wasn't asking any questions, and was
hoping he'd be left out of the whole affair, even though in a way he
had encouraged it and helped them by providing the condoms.
I'd like you to join the four of us in the family room," Mr.
Wilson said once they were inside, "We have some things to discuss.
Greg, perhaps you could watch TV in the game room or play some video
games while we talk to Isaac."
sir," Greg said, relieved he wasn't being drug into the fray.
oh, Isaac moaned to himself, so much for staying out of it. "Yes sir,
just need to use the bathroom first."
right, but hurry."
Isaac finally made it to the living room he was relieved to see that
Jeremy and Dee were sitting side by side holding hands. At least
folks weren't going to try to keep them apart.
down son, I suppose you probably already know what this meeting is
about," Mr. Wilson said from his seat beside his wife,
together in solidarity.
maybe," Isaac said, not wanting to give too much away.
mother and I consider ourselves to be reasonable and open minded
people, but we do feel like perhaps our trust has been abused of
lately," Mr. Wilson said looking directly at Jeremy, who withered under
his gaze. Beside him Dee blushed, but never dropped her eyes. She was
proud of Jeremy and their relationship and she wasn't about to act as
if she were ashamed of her man and what they'd done.
being said, I suppose you already know what I'm talking about. Last
night, despite our best attempt to keep our two love birds apart,
your brother snuck into Dee's room in the middle of the night, and
well...I don't suppose I need to go into detail about what went on
was blushing as well, and he felt sorry for the two, but he was more
worried about his own involvement and how they might react to the news
that he had bought the condoms for his brother.
least you were level-headed enough to provide your brother with
protection, and though I suppose some parents might say you were partly
to blame, I'm thankful actually, that you cared enough to make sure your
brother was at least safe, even if not sane."
breathed a sigh of relief.
you are not completely off the hook young man," his father said
"As the older and wiser brother, I would have expected you to try to
talk some sense into your brother before giving in to his request
for...um, supplies," Mr. Wilson said looking uncomfortable for the
first time. "I know you are both normal healthy teens and your hormones
are running rampant, but that's no excuse for this sort of behavior.
Your mother and I feel betrayed and we're very disappointed in both of
ease up some," Mrs. Wilson said laying a hand on her husband's arm, "We
don't want you boys to think we don't understand or that we wouldn't
stand behind you if things went wrong, but we do love you enough to
want what's best for you, and sometimes that may not agree with your
own thoughts in that area.
you are a lovely girl and we are both very fond of you. You have
Jeremy just as he is and we both have seen the changes in him. He is
more outgoing, gentler, and kinder, and we feel good about the two of
you being together. However, until last night we assumed your
relationship was, well shall we say, less physical." She sighed, "But I
suppose we were a bit naive in that respect. I would say that allowing
Dee to spend the night was not a good idea, but I'm smart enough to
know that had you not had this opportunity to...well, to consummate
love, you would have found another, one perhaps not as safe or
I'm not saying I approve of what you kids did, and yes I still think of
you as kids until you are at least 18, but there is no going back now.
At least you were safe and sanitary as your father has said, thanks to
Isaac," she said giving Isaac a guarded look, "but we are very
concerned about whether you both are emotionally ready for this sort of
thing. Sex is one thing, but love and commitment is quite another."
brother came to us this morning, and even though I assume it was
because he knew he'd been busted already," she said grinning a little,
"he confessed to us what had happened last night and that he and Dee
were in love. I have no doubt they have deep feelings for each other,
that is obvious, but loving someone and being in love are two
completely different things. You are both still very young and things
may change, however...there is no going back. You have already done the
deed, as they say, and nothing can change that. Some parents at this
point might try to keep you two apart or make sure that nothing like
this ever happens again, but your father and I both agree that that is
not an option. Instead we will offer our support to you two, and hope
you will be wise enough not to abuse this gift you have given each
there be some punishment? Yes, but probably not what you think. We are
not going to watch you like hawks, or try to make sure you're never
alone. That would be ridiculous and impossible. We're not having a
Romeo, Juliette type of situation," she teased.
Jeremy protested, "We get it, we messed up, but we're not sorry we made
love. I love Dee more than ever now, and I will not mess this thing up
between us. It's not just about sex, we love each other in the same
ways you and dad love each other. We love being together, holding hands
or kissing, just doing regular stuff, and we're not going to hop into
bed every chance we get. We're more mature now that we've taken this
step in our relationship. What Dee has given me is a wonderful gift and
I want you all to know that I value it more than anything I have ever
been given. Dee, I love you more than ever, and I promise you I will do
everything in my power to show you every day how I feel."
were tears in everyone's eyes when Jeremy was finished, and as he wiped
tears from his own eyes, Isaac jumped in.
dad, I know I should have probably tried to talk Jeremy and Dee out of
this, but what's the use? In fact, I agree with them. The
was right and they are in love. No one got hurt, and no one got
pregnant," he said pausing to make sure he hadn't gone too far, but
his parents seemed to be open to more, "And I feel like the
of them are old enough to decide what they want. Sure, they're young,
but that doesn't mean they can't be in love." Then suddenly Isaac had
an idea, a way to take some of the heat off Jeremy and Dee and solve
another problem at the same time, but he had to talk to Greg first.
dad, can I be excused for a moment?" he said quickly, "I need to talk
to Greg, and then if he agrees, I want to bring him back and talk to
about something else."
Wilson's mouth hung open, but he waved his son on. Mrs.
had a pretty good idea what it was Isaac needed to ask Greg, and she
wasn't sure this was what she wanted, but there was no denying her son,
and she too nodded.
wasn't gone long, and when he returned he was leading Greg by the hand,
the boy looking worried and nervous.
dad, I know we've already talked a little about this, about the
friendship Greg and I share, but I think it's time to come clean,"
Isaac took a deep breath, "I believe in love too, and well...from the
first moment I met Greg I knew we were going to be friends. And well, I
know it might seem like things have moved pretty fast, but well...we're
in love. I know, that might sound crazy, especially since I have never
dated anyone but girls and all, but well...I guess when it comes to
love it doesn't matter whether that person is a boy or a girl. I know
I'm probably not saying this right, but well...Greg and I are in love,
and we just wanted to share it with the people we care the most about."
two sit down," Mrs. Wilson said smiling, "I know you think we're dense
and don't know whats going on most of the time, but your father and I
pretty much had you two figured out when we first saw the two of you
together. I will admit we were a little surprised, but it's like you
say, we don't choose who we fall in love with. You're almost 17, and
probably more adult than child at this point, and I have no doubt what
you are feeling is real and sincere. Will it last? Only time will tell.
There's the distance thing too. Have you given any thought to that?
After all long distance relationships are very fragile and difficult to
yes...we've given that a lot of thought. We'll both be going off to
college in just over a year and we were hoping we could maybe get into
the same college and room together."
what about the mean time?" Mr. Wilson said.
Greg called his dad and he's going on the tour with us, and afterwards
I guess he'll go back to California and finish school. We'll keep in
touch and maybe in the summer we can get together..."
not trying to discourage you," Mr. Wilson added, "Just making sure you
understand what you're up against."
given it a lot of thought dad," Isaac said, "and we're willing to give
it a chance. If things don't work out it won't be because we didn't
try, but we may need your help."
how do you feel about all this?" Mrs. Wilson said smiling at the
well...Isaac pretty much said it all. I...I had been wondering for a
while about...about you know? Being gay and my attraction for guys,
then I met Isaac and well...that pretty much gave me all the answers I
needed. Since I've met him my whole life has changed...for the better. You
folks have been great and I feel really welcome here. I...I love Isaac
a lot and I'm not ashamed to say it. He's everything I ever dreamed
about in a boy and more. He saved me in a way, because I was lost...not
knowing where I belonged or who I was...and now, and now I'm stronger
and more assured and I know for a fact that I want to be with him for
as long as we can make it work."
we'll certainly do our part," Mrs. Wilson assured them.
we're all good?" Jeremy said grinning, anxious to end this embarrassing
conversation. Though he might appear bold on the outside he was still
trembling on the inside. After all this was his folks he was talking to
about sex and love. He was thankful that Isaac had stepped in and side
tracked his parents and now he was hoping the worst of his
interrogation was over.
man, don't rush things," Mr. Wilson said, "Isaac, Greg, why don't you
go back to the game room or Isaac's room? We still have some things we
need to discuss with Jeremy and Dee."
didn't have to be asked twice, and as he pulled Greg up off the couch
he flashed Jeremy a sympathetic look, but it didn't stop him from nearly
dragging Greg out of the room.
they were alone in Isaac's room Greg nearly collapsed.
MY GOD, I was so nervous back there," he said trembling.
took him in his strong arms and hugged him close, "I knew they'd be
cool with it. Sorry if I left you hanging, but look at it like this,
now we have their blessings, and that will help us make things work."
just had a thought though," Greg said looking pained, "What if your
folks tell my folks about us? I mean they might already think
they know and stuff..."
guess we need to caution them not to spill the beans, but...Greg, don't
you think it's time you came clean with your folks? I mean if this
is going to work we need their support too."
don't know," Greg said pulling back a little and placing his hands on
Isaac's well defined chest. Even as distraught as he was, he couldn't
help but become aroused just touching his sexy lover, "What if they try
to keep us apart, or make me come back home?"
Greg, you know your folks better than I do. Do you really think they
would do that?"
don't know, my dad is as open minded as anyone I know, what with
dealing with celebrities and all, but I'm not sure about my mom."
about your brothers? How do you think they would take the news?"
I'm not really that worried that much about them. We're very close and I've
talked with my next oldest brother about...well, about my maybe being gay,
and he was cool with it and very supportive. We're close enough that I
think the younger ones would accept me without too much trouble...and I
know for a fact that they like you."
maybe you should start slow, fell them out and see what they think
about you having a boyfriend."
don't know. Can't it wait till after the tour?"
you really want to wait till the tour is over, being on pins and
needles the whole time?"
don't know...I just don't want to do anything to mess this up. I want
to be with you, even if it's just for the tour."
think we should talk to my folks some more. See what they know, my
mom has already talked to your mom , I'd be curious to find out what they talked about."
man, do you think she asked my mom what was going on with us?"
nothing like that. My mom would have been very diplomatic about it. I'm
sure she was just feeling her out to see what she thought."
don't know, but I trust you, and if you say we can trust your folks to
help us, then I'll do whatever I need to."
once they've finished grilling the love birds, we'll go talk to them."
they waited they listened to music and talked while sitting on Isaac's
bed and holding hands. They were too nervous to do much more, though
they did kiss a time or two, but the kisses were gentle and not at all
gentle knock on their door about a half hour later prompted
Jeremy to hop up and answer it.
bro, can you run Dee and me to her place. I have to have a talk with
her mom. Mom and dad insist," he said looking worried.
shit, I was afraid of this. They're leaving you to break the news to
Dee's mom that you went all the way."
exactly, mom already called her, but we need to go face her and see
what she has to say to us."
man, what does Dee say? Does she think her mom will try to kill you or
anything?" Isaac laughed.
shrugged, "Will you say a few words at my funeral?" he teased.
doubt she'd kill you, neuter you maybe," Isaac joked.
funny big bro, come on, Greg too. I need all the support I can get."
was downstairs talking with the Wilsons when they came down, but she
quickly jumped up to join them.
Jeremy asked as he took Dee's hand, "Let's do this thing. Mom, dad, it
was nice knowing you," he teased, but his folks weren't amused.
you are going to do the things a man does, then you are going to have
to face up to them as a man," Mr. Wilson said, "Be a man, and admit your
mistakes and be prepared to face the consequences.
was a lot of help," Jeremy fumed as they climbed into the car.
Dee's mom is pretty cool. What few times I've met her she seemed nice
but I hadn't deflowered her daughter back then."
giggled, "Deflowered. Jer...mom may not be happy that I didn't wait,
but we've talked about this stuff and she understands. She lost her
virginity when she was 15, so she knows how it is."
I'm pretty nervous. I hope she doesn't try to keep us apart."
will never happen," Dee insisted, "she knows she can't control me like
seemed to accept her take on things, and didn't talk much during the
rest of the short trip to Dee's. Piling out of the car almost as soon
as it rolled to a stop, Jeremy helped Dee out and stood beside the car
staring at the apartment building.
here we are," Jeremy said swallowing hard, "no turning back now."
on dufus," Dee said taking Jeremy's hand, "Let's get this over with."
the two went inside Isaac and Greg sat talking about their own
situation, but they were no closer to a solution when the two love
birds reappeared holding hands and looking reasonably happy.
I see you didn't lose your manhood," Isaac joked.
actually she was pretty nice about the whole thing. In fact, she said
she figured we had done that a long time ago. She's a cool lady and
very open minded. She basically gave us her blessings, but she warned me
that if I ever hurt Dee that all bets were off," he laughed, "Well, no
danger there. I love this little shorty more than ever now."
your little shorty," Dee giggled. "Well, I gotta get back, mom and I
still have some talking to do and we're going out to dinner later.
Thanks for driving us Isaac, and congrats to you and Greg. I
think it's really cool that you found each other."
they said their goodbyes, Dee went back to her apartment, and Isaac drove them
back home. Jeremy sat in the back and was quiet for most of the trip,
but Isaac could see that a huge burden had been lifted off his
shoulders now that everything was settled.
got off lucky bro," Isaac chuckled, "but I'm glad it all worked out,
and it gave me a chance to come clean about Greg too."
I think that may have taken some of the heat off me. But they had to
know something was up before you told them. I mean the way you two look
at each other is a dead giveaway."
you hungry bro, want to go grab some ice cream or something?" Isaac said changing the subject.
I'm starved, and I'm paying."
at home Jeremy went to his room to call the twins and fill them in on
what had happened, and Isaac and Greg went off in search of Isaac's
folks. They found them sitting on the patio sipping wine, and when they
saw the boys they invited them to sit with them.
did things go at Dee's?" Mr. Wilson asked grinning, "I assume
he made it home in one piece."
things are cool there. Jeremy is upstairs. Uh, what I wanted to talk to
you about was...Greg's folks."
what about them?" Mrs. Wilson said with interest.
you won't tell them what we talked about today, will you?"
mean about you and Greg being a couple? No, but I think Greg should."
just not sure how they will feel about all this..."
Mrs. Wilson said giving him a soft motherly look, "I have talked with
your mother, and she seems like a wonderful person, and she loves you
very much. And as for your father, I liked him right away, and even
though our first dealings were of a business nature, it didn't take me
long to realize what a wonderful man he is. I don't know your siblings
all that well, but I can only guess that being raised by such loving
and caring parents like yours, they are fine young men as well. So, that
being said, do you really think your parents would react badly to the
happy news that their oldest son has finally come to grips with who he
is, and in the process found someone he truly cares about?"
you put it like that..." Greg stammered.
Mrs. Wilson said smiling, "When I talked to your mother we both sort of
came to the same conclusion, that you and Isaac were very close, and we
fully agreed that that was a good thing."
did?" Greg said smiling for the first time, "I never could hide much
from her. I'm a lousy liar, but I was very careful not to let my real
mothers pick up on these things. I think if I were you, that's where I
would start. Call your mother, tell her how much you miss her, and then
just ease into things. I think you'll be pleasantly surprise at the
you, I will," Greg said looking at Isaac and smiling, "After all, I'm a
thousand miles away, what can she do to me?"
caused everyone to laugh and the tension that had been overpowering
Greg was washed away.
and Dee have consummated their relationship just in time for Jeremy and
the boys to hit the road. The rents are on board for the most part, but
of course they are still concerned that the two kids may not be mature
enough for this kind of relationship. Still they are being supportive
and will give them the benefit of the doubt.
that Isaac and Greg have revealed their true relationship to the
Wilsons, it's time to come clean with Greg's parents as well. Will they
react favorably and still allow Greg to remain with the band and go on
tour, or force him to come home?
the next chapter we'll find out the answer as the tour begins and the
boys find out the true nature of show business.
