We didn’t go out, instead Larry
helped me get organized, putting clothes away, setting up
my computer, crap like that.
Larry also dug through some of his unopened boxes and came
up with a coffee maker.
He grinned at me. “My mom said that I wouldn’t
last a day and a half without this. Morning coffee is a major
thing for me.”
I smiled at him. “Did she show
you how to use it?”
Larry was walking around the room still wearing the jeans
that he had on earlier but he had pulled his shirt out of his
pants and kicked off his shoes. He smelled of aftershave and
a little bit of sweat and this muted but intensely male scent.
He laughed. “My dad did. My mom only knows how to buy
coffee makers, not actually make coffee………….or
anything for that matter. Dad cooks everything that we eat
at home but mostly we go out.” The shirt was hanging
from his broad shoulders and it emphasized his narrow hips.
I looked at him. “What do your
mom and dad do? Like for a living?”
He sat down on the floor in front of
the bed that I was sitting on and said. “They’ve got a factory.” I must
have given him an impressed look because he added in a hurry. “A
little one. They make little electrical thingy’s, like
antennas and those little clippie things that let you clip
your cell phone to your belt. Weird stuff like that. But they
do pretty good.”
He lay back on the floor still looking
at me. “How about
“David, he’s the short one with the black hair,
he’s an investment advisor, he’s got his on company,
and Mark, obviously the big guy, he’s like a manufacturers
rep but he does mostly government stuff.” I wondered
what they were doing right now. They would have landed by now.
Larry gave me a strange look. “They
looked intense but in different ways. David smiled when they
walked past me but
he had like these weird eyes. Like totally intense eyes.”
I laughed. “Yeah………….I guess
that I’m used to em but they can be intense. More so
if he’s mad about something but even when he’s
happy those eyes can really be something and with that black
hair they just seem to glow.”
Larry turned on his side and propped
his head up on his hand. “The
big guy, Mark he looked kinda mean.” He waved his hand. “Erase
that! I don’t know him that well…….or at
all. He’s probably a great guy.”
“Oh yeah, Larry! Mark is a great guy, a warm hearted
guy. It’s just that he’s big and he was in the
military and even now he spends sooooo much time with the military.
I guess it kinda gives him a look but he’s not like that.
A mean if he gets mad you don’t wanna be around but that
like never happens.”
Larry grinned. “He’s got great posture. Maybe
from all that marching. Speaking of which……….posture
that is………..walk on my back.”
He rolled over onto his stomach and stretched his arms out.
When he did that his shirt was pulled up and I could see how
his jeans were riding up his butt and the thick muscles in
his upper back bunched. Oh fuck!
“Walk on your back?” His
hair was pretty long and it brushed over the collar of his
shirt in soft brown feathers.
“Yeah. Take your shoes off and don’t put all of
your weight on unless I say to but it’ll really help,
my back is killing me. It does that sometimes.”
I kicked off my loafers and walked over
to him. “I’ll
“No you won’t. My dad does this all the time for
me. It’ll be fine. Just don’t like jump or anything.” Brown
eyes………….puppy dog brown.
I gently put one foot on his lower back.
“Yeah that’s good, start there.” His
back was hard and soft at the same time. There was hard muscle
bone under my foot but his body rocked with my movements.
“Larry, I’m gonna hurt ya!”
“Alex, it’s fine! Put some
weight on the foot.”
I put more pressure on his back but there
was no way that I was going to be able to walk on it.”
“I don’t think this is working,
Larry lifted his head and partially turned
to look around the room. “We need a chair so that you don’t
lose you balance. Grab the desk chair.”
I pulled the chair over and resumed my
position of one foot on Larry’s back.
“Okay lemme brace myself a little.” He moved his
hand closer to his body. “Okay move higher on my back
and then do both feet.”
“Larry, I’m as heavy as you
are, you sure that you want that on your back?”
“Come on, Alex, just try.”
“Okay, just brace yourself.” Hanging
onto the chair with one hand I put my foot higher on his
back and then
slowly lifted my other foot and pretty soon I was standing
wobbly on his back.”
So there I stood my knees bent and shaking, one hand on the
back of a desk chair and my feet on the middle of his back.
Geez he had a muscular back!
“So what about the whole naked thing?” What?
The chair skidded across the room and
gravity took over. Fortunately I knew enough to roll when
I hit the floor. When I realized
that I wasn’t hurt and was able to breath I started laughing.
Larry was on his hands and knees looking
down at me all concerned. “Jesus,
Alex! You okay?”
“Larry, what fucking naked thing?”
“That’s why you fell? I meant sleeping. Alex,
I just can’t wear anything, I won’t sleep, it gets
all tangled up and I end up turning all night. I’m a
nut case by morning.”
I sat up. “Did I hurt your back?”
“No, I think that it’s better.
So what about the naked thing?”
I laughed. “You know that this means that you’re
going to be looking at gay cock every morning.”
He smiled. “Is it a lot different
than a straight one?”
I was embarrassed and did what I usually
do when I am. I laughed. “Not
so’s you’d notice.”
“It won’t bother me but I don’t
want you to be uncomfortable. The whole naked sleeping thing
is my problem.
Everybody else tells me that they sleep in their underwear.”
“Don’t tell me that you did
“I just asked all of my friends, you know, when I knew
that………….well that it might be a problem.
I’ve never shared a room before so it was never an issue.
I know that it’s dumb but I worried about it.”
“I never had to share either. I guess that we’ve
both gotta get used to stuff. The naked sleeping isn’t
a problem for me. At home I usually slept naked too.” He
still looked worried. “Really, it’s not a problem.” I
wondered if we were both thinking about the beating off issue.
After a couple more hours of endless talking we started to
get ready for bed. We brushed by each other on our ways to
and from the shower and toilet and then finally settled down.
I turned off the desk lamp and that left only a small lamp
over each of our beds.
I looked at Larry who was sitting on the edge of his bed looking
like a virgin on her wedding night.
“You know, Larry, if you hadn’t said anything
about this I probably would have just stripped off without
even thinking about it but now you’ve got me thinking
He was chewing on his thumbnail. He sighed. “This
I smiled and said. “You got that right.” I slid
off my boxers and tossed them in the direction of my dirty
clothes bag. I pointed at my crotch. “Gay cock.” With
that I slid under the covers of my bed and looked at Larry.
“Come on big guy, let’s see
Larry smiled at me. “You’re
not gonna like fantasize about this are you?”
“Not if you never show it to me!”
He quickly stripped off his boxers and
dropped them at the side of the bed. He pointed at his dick. “Straight cock.” He
too slid under the covers and then reached up and killed the
light over his bed.
I turned off my light too and then we laid there in the darkness
with just faint illumination coming from the window. Haze or
fog had moved in and the lights from outside seemed to cause
the air to become incandescent. Typical of Palo Alto it became
surprisingly cool in the evening. It was nice cock. It had
been two years since I had had sex with another human being.
Not that that was going to happen with Larry.
After a couple of minutes Larry said. “Alex?”
“Whatcha doing tomorrow?”
“Gotta go to the medical center for a physical. I was
supposed to have gotten one back home but somehow we didn’t
know that so I’m getting one here. Why? What are you
“I was gonna check out the gym. I haven’t
worked out since I got here and it makes me feel weird. If
work out I could go with you to the medical center and then
we could go workout.”
“I gotta be at the center at nine.”
“No problem. I wake up early. I’ll get you up.” Larry
didn’t know it but he had already gotten me up.
I was dreaming about a shopping mall,
a big one and I was walking all over it and everyone in it
was taking hidden glances
at me but when I looked directly at them the looked away and
then I’d see Tommy way far away on the other side of
the mall and I’d run to catch him but when I got there
he’d be gone.
I woke up to Larry shaking me. “Alex! Alex! Hey, it’s
time to get up.”
I’m one of those awake, yet not,
the instant you touch me people and I was saying okay to
him and rolling out of bed
before I was really fully awake.
My head was dropped to my chest as I
sat on the edge of the bed and I was saying. “I’m up, I’m
Larry shoved a mug of hot coffee into
my hands and said. “I
can see that and good morning to both of you.”
“Morning, Larry.” Both of us? I looked down at
a morning hardon. “Oh fuck!” I grabbed the end
of the blanket and pulled it over my waist. I mumbled. “Why
didn’t you tell me?”
Larry had retreated laughing to his computer
but was still watching me. “I knew that you’d
fantasize about me once you got a look at my dick.”
I took a long sip of coffee and smiled
at Larry. “Well,
there’s no point in trying hide anything now.” I
got up and forced myself to walk slowly to the bathroom and
not to think about whether or not Larry was watching me.
“I’ve got a nine o’clock appointment.” The
woman was looking at me over her glasses and didn’t give
any indication that she thought that this was very important.
She handed me a clipboard with a pen
attached by a chain and pointed with a pencil to the waiting
area. “Have a seat
and fill this out. We’ll call you.”
She glared at Larry and he just nodded
towards me. “I’m
She responded with a slow, “Um
Weird that you can feel like an adult one moment and then
like a kid the next. We went and sat next to each other.
Larry’s arms were resting on his knees and he was staring
at the floor, watching our gym bags. “So you think he’s
gonna shove a finger up your butt?”
“I doubt it.” I was beginning
to learn that Larry worried, or at least thought about, everything.
I smiled although he couldn’t see it. “I’m
not that lucky.”
Larry sounded kinda fake appalled. “You
actually like that stuff?”
I laughed. “It’s what we
do Larry. I like it all.”
He looked at me and smiled. “So you’d
take it up the butt?”
“Don’t make movies in your head, Larry.” I
leaned in his direction and bumped his shoulder with mine. “Besides,
think of all the stuff you straight guys do.”
He sat back in the chair and stretched his legs out while
he slumped down in the chair. His cock and balls were being
crushed against his left leg.
“Yeah, I guess that we can be pretty disgusting too.” He
was silent for a minute and then said. “Funny how the
most disgusting stuff is the most fun.”
I leaned back in the chair and rested
my left arm along the back of Larry’s chair. “So what’s
the most disgusting thing you ever did with a girl?
He looked at me. “I dunno. Rimming
“Straight guys rim?” I honestly
thought that rimming was exclusively our territory.
“Yep. Well not all the time. Actually
“Weird, that’s probably our most disgusting thing
too………..at least when you just think about
it. Doing it is something else.”
Larry pointed at the clipboard. “Ya
gotta fill that out.”
I looked down at the form. “Oh………yeah.”
Larry said. “Is there a spot to
check for homo?”
I smiled. “Ah let’s see. There’s straight
guy who never has sex, aaaaannnnddd, there’s straight
guy who can’t deal with his attraction to men, aaaaaannnnndddd,
there’s straight guy who doesn’t know how to satisfy
a woman, aaaannnnddddd, there’s gay guy who’s in
love with a straight guy who hasn’t a clue, aaaaannnnnnddddd………………well,
I guess that’s it. Wait a minute. There’s, “How
many sex partners have you had in the last 12 months?”
Larry nudged me with his shoulder. “I
wanna see the answer to that last one, smartass.”
I laughed. “That’s easy. Zero! The big nada.” I
pointed at the paper with the attached pen. “Oh look!
They want to know what my preferred sexual partner is.”
Larry giggled. “Yeah, yeah. I wanna
see the answer to that one too.”
I checked zero for the first and men for the second.
Larry stared at me. “You really haven’t
had sex with anyone since you broke up with whatshisname?”
Larry turned his soft brown eyes to me
and said. “That
“Believe me! I agree. I’m so fucking horny…………….well
actually it’s not that I’m like crazy horny………………I
mean I beat off and all but I miss the physical contact. The
intimacy………..kissing and stuff.”
Larry sighed. “Oh fuck! You are
so gonna fall for the first loser that crosses your path.”
I nudged him with my shoulder again. “Quit
trying to build up my confidence.”
Larry said. “So when do you beat
I laughed. “When I see that you’ve
fallen asleep with your mouth open.”
“Eeuuwwwe ick! I can’t imagine what that would
be like. That’s really disgusting!”
I rubbed my eyes and yawned. “When you’re in love
it doesn’t seem disgusting. Nothing seems disgusting
The nurse called my name and took me to an examining room,
took my pulse and started to take my blood pressure. After
a moment she took the stethoscope out of her ears and took
the blood pressure cuff off of my arm.
“Your pulse is 58 and your blood pressure is 105 over
60. Now if you’ll strip down to your underwear and put
on this gown. It ties in the back. Doctor has a student with
him this morning and he’ll be in to see you first and
then Doctor Fulgrath. You can sit on the examining table.” She
pointed at the wall rack and said. ”There’s magazines
there. Doctor has two patients ahead of you.”
I leafed through a Time magazine for
a couple of minutes and then there was a soft knock on the
door and it slowly opened.
A young guy walked in who was dressed like a doctor but I almost
got the feeling that he had stolen the white coat from someone.
He was beautiful in a “what the fuck am I doing here” kinda
way but didn’t seem to have really great control over
the movements of his body.
He looked at the clipboard he was holding
and then looked up at me. “Misssssterrrr……….” His
hair was dark brown and cut short his eyes were a bright blue.
I smiled at him. “Just call me Alex, the rest is too
difficult.” We shook hands.
“I’m working with Doctor Fulgrath today. I’m
going to do some preliminary work and then the doctor will
come in and have a look at you.” His face was angular
with a strong jaw. “It says here that you’re just
in for a physical………..nothing else that you’re
I looked him right in the eye and he
seemed to blush slightly. “No,
Doc, I’m good, no complaints.” I know that he’s
not a doctor yet but I thought that I’d just throw in
the Doc thing.
He held up the end of his stethoscope. “Mind
if I listen?”
“That’s fine. Whatever you need to do.” I
was beginning to get some ideas of my own along those lines.
He reached up and undid the knot holding the hospital gown
and then pulled it off of my upper body. He smelled of shave
cream. Gently he placed the stethoscope on my back and listen
in several spots with the usual requests to stop breathing.
He left hand was at first holding my left shoulder and then
slowly moving over the surface of my skin.
“Your skin is good. And you must work out, you’re
in fantastic shape.”
“Yeah I do. We were just gonna
go work out after I finish here.”
“Was that with…………the other
fella……….he’s your boyfriend?” I
must have had a surprised look on my face because he quickly
added. “The form………….it says………..well
implies really, that you’re gay.” He was as red
as a beet.
I looked him right in the eye. “I am gay but Larry’s
my roommate, not my boyfriend.”
He stammered. “I didn’t mean to………..”
I smiled at him. “It’s okay………..a
