Friday of that week was my first workout with Nels. I was driving
home and I tried to think of some redeeming quality that
the man might have that I missed. He was an arrogant, unkind,
slave driving asshole, which I guess made him about perfect
for the job. If there was indeed a muscle in my body that
didn’t hurt it had gone into hiding. It had been ninety
minutes of being berated and made to push my muscles beyond
anything that they had ever dreamt of. It was also deeply
and oddly satisfying.
Pulling into the garage I was thrilled
to see Ben’s
truck parked in the last bay. We hadn’t seen him since
before we left for Washington and I was beginning to get worried
and I know that Larry was too. We had talked to him on the
phone of course but Larry was pretty sure that he was avoiding
telling us something and he was right.
Getting out of my car I felt like I was a hundred years old.
I was counting on my body getting used to these workouts before
they killed me.
When I got to the family room I found
out that Ben didn’t
come alone and was sitting on the couch with a very cute red
headed young guy plastered up against his right side. Ben jumped
up and gave me a hug.
“Geez, Ben, it’s good to know you’re
“Alex, I want you to meet James Collman.” He turned
back to the couch and held out his hand. “Comere, Jimmy.” Jimmy
looked like Ben had just asked him to commit hara kiri but
slowly came over to us with Larry following and looking like
he planned to catch Jimmy when he fainted. Jimmy may have been
shy but he had an amazing body.
Larry said, “Alex, Jimmy is not really used to being
with other gay guys.” Ben wrapped his arm around Jimmy
protectively and said, “He’s kinda shy.” Jimmy
was blushing furiously.
I put my hand gently on Jimmy’s shoulder and gave it
a light squeeze while I stared into his green eyes. “Nothing
to worry about, Jimmy. If you’ve been able to stand being
around Ben Larry and I will be a walk in the park. Did these
guys get you a beer?”
He nodded. “Yeah but I’m really not suppose to
drink when I’m training.”
I raised an eyebrow. He said, “I’m
I smiled. “I’m probably not
supposed to either but after what I went thru this evening
I need one.”
Jimmy grinned. “Larry told me what
you were going thru.”
With some trouble I pried Jimmy out of
protective arms and pulled him down onto the sofa next to me
and we spent a half an hour discussing the hells of training
while Ben hovered nervously in the background and Larry watched
Finally I asked him quietly, “You
guys staying tonight.”
Jimmy suddenly looked worried. “Ben said it was okay
but I don’t know if he even asked or not.”
“He doesn’t need to. You guys are always welcome
and Ben knows that.” I glanced over at Ben and Larry. “You
guys gonna think I’m a total wuss if I tell ya I gotta
get some sleep?”
We got the guys settled in what we considered
to be Ben’s
room, even though he no longer needed a place to hide out,
and then Larry and I stripped off and dropped into our own
bed. Larry walked into the bathroom and said over his shoulder, “Roll
over onto your stomach.”
I wasn’t sure where I’d find the strength for
sex but I still rolled over. As he walked back towards the
bed I said, “You may end up fucking me in my sleep.”
Larry straddled my butt and let his weight
settle slowly on me. “I’m not gonna fuck you! You think I’m
wild animal or something? I know you’re hurtin. I’m
giving you a massage.”
“Larry it’s like fifty fifty that I’m gonna
fall asleep while you’re doing this.”
“Don’t worry about it. Just relax.” His
hands began to work over my shoulder muscles and I began to
groan. At first it hurt like hell but then as his strong hands
worked, the soreness began to leave and I became aware of Larry’s
hardon bouncing around against my back. All of a sudden sex
didn’t seem like such an impossibility but when I started
to shove my butt up harder against his dick he slapped it.
“Just forget about it till tomorrow,
I twisted around until I was facing him
on top of me. “Okay
but how about a kiss? Very few muscles involved. Or at least
very few big ones.”
He grinned and bent down until his lips
were almost touching mine. He whispered in a mock serious
no funny business.” We kissed lightly and his lips drew
me in and we began kissing much harder. Finally we broke and
Larry laid his head next to mine his face in my neck.
I asked him, “Did you tell Ben
that we plan to be monogamous?”
He sucked on my ear for a second. “He told me. Followed
me into the kitchen when I went for beers. Apparently he doesn’t
want to share Jimmy.”
I smiled. “He looks like he’s
totally besotted with Jimmy.”
Larry laughed. “They’ve been
staring into each others eyes all evening. It was really
cute. I got a feeling
that as we speak Jimmy is getting his cute little butt plowed.”
He ran the tip of his tongue over my
lips and I sucked it in. Larry groaned and said, “Don’t
start anything, you need to rest.”
I grinned at him. “Hey you started
it with the whole tongue thing.”
Larry grinned. “There is a way
we can do this without you having to work too hard.”
“Whadya got in mind?”
Larry squirted some massage oil on his
hand and reached behind him and coated my hard cock with
it. I raised an eyebrow but
he just smiled and then lifted his butt up and started positioning
my cock at his asshole. I smiled up at him. “Geez, you
must be horny!”
He laughed. “I’ve been watching Ben mentally humping
Jimmy’s leg for two hours. Besides I’ve been thinking
about this all day.” His lips parted and he looked up
at the ceiling as he settled down slowly onto my cock the feeling
of his ring of muscle traveling down my cock almost sending
me over the edge. He’s only just started getting fucked
every once in a while and he is sooo tight! Larry’s huge
dick was sticking up at a forty-five degree angle and began
slowly bobbing up and down with the rhythm of the fuck.
The next morning I woke to Larry’s
hands moving lightly over my abs. His head was on the pillow
next to mine and he
was staring into my eyes.
He whispered, “You’re all muscles.” His
voice was all little boy soft.
I lifted my hand and touched the side
of his face with the tips of my fingers. “Right now
the muscles are all hurtin.”
“How come you do it?”
I sighed. “I’m really not sure. I guess because
it’s what Mark and I always did and I just got in the
habit. But I agree that it doesn’t necessarily make any
sense. When I don’t do it I feel like I’m slacking
off.” I moved my head and kissed his nose. “I guess
Larry and I went into the breakfast room and were sitting
there in our boxers drinking coffee and watching a small group
of mule deer making their way thru the valley below when Ben
and Jimmy came in. Ben was wearing boxers too but Jimmy seemed
to be wearing boxer heather colored boxer briefs but he seemed
to be trying to hide his pert little butt behind Ben.
I got up and dragged Jimmy over to the
pretend you’re in the locker room after training.”
He laughed nervously. “I have trouble
with that too!”
I grinned at him. “I know it doesn’t help much
having someone telling you that you shouldn’t be nervous
when you are. But hey, you’re among friends who aren’t
gonna give you any kind of hard time. Besides, you’ve
got an amazing body!”
Ben squeezed in next to Jimmy and put
his arm around him. Then he looked at me and said, “Larry
said your dads are coming in next week.”
I nodded. “Friday evening.”
“I’d like to come by Saturday
and thank your dad for what he did with the bank and getting
“Sure. But officially he didn’t ho anything. At
least I think that’s what he’ll say. But sure,
come on by.”
“When are you guys goin to Europe?”
“Gonna be a few weeks yet.” We had told a few
people that we were going to Europe for a month but we hadn’t
told anyone about Gerhardt. I mean, who would I tell and what
would I say? The fact was that it all seemed a little weird
to me. I couldn’t even remember my real dad except for
a few brief flashes and now maybe he had left me something
that I had never known anything about. Plus the fact that even
though he was my biological dad as far as I was concerned David
and Mark were my real dads.
The following week we were at the airport waiting in the twilight
for my dads and then suddenly Marie started the Suburban
and drove us to another section where there were no buildings
just nothing but tarmac. An empty Suburban followed us. It
was like we were in an empty parking lot rather than an airport.
I looked at her with a question on my face.
She just said, “Safer here.”
I heard a faint roar getting louder and
looked to the right as my dad’s plane came into view
all white and silver and blue and huge and predatory looking
like some hungry raptor.
At the last minute it made a half right turn and stopped lights
spinning underneath the body of the plane. The lights inside
the plane were on and spilling out a yellowish light onto the
tarmac. Inside David and Mark were moving around with the help
of a half dozen other people.
The door opened and the stairs were lower and David looked
out and waved. He was dressed in dark blue suit pants and a
brilliantly white shirt with no tie. His glasses were pushed
back on the top of his head in the tangle of his black hair.
He started patting his pockets like he
was looking for something. Samantha came up behind him draped
his suit coat over his shoulders
and tried unsuccessfully to push him away from the door. He
yelled something back into the cabin and then Mark dressed
in jeans and a white dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up
came forward and lowered David’s glasses from the top
of his head to his nose. They both laughed and Mark kissed
David quickly. Two security people had already descended to
the pavement and were scanning the area. There was absolutely
nothing in any direction.
Larry and I got out of the Suburban and walked towards the
plane just as Mark spotted us and came down the stairs three
at a time. I knew that Larry was not quite sure how he was
supposed to be acting but I was also pretty sure that Mark
was gonna ignore his shyness and he did. Before either of us
had a chance to worry about it we were dragged into a massive
Mark hug and Larry got a stupid grin producing kiss. The ice
had been broken.
Samantha was walking around talking on
a cell phone and walked up to David as he came down the stairs
and spoke with him quietly
for several seconds. He nodded twice looking very serious and
then shrugged his shoulders and turned and walked towards us.
He reached out took my hand in his and kissed me and then did
the same to Larry. He and I were still in Mark’s arms
and I definitely felt like I was twelve but it was okay.
While the four of us were talking Samantha walked away from
the plane towards two approaching vehicles. One was another
SUV with four men in it and the other was a police car.
I grinned at David. “You’re
traveling with an awful lot of security. Anything I should
David started ushering us toward one
of the Suburbans and said, “I don’t really think it’s anything
important, at least not yet. I’ll fill you in completely
when we get to the house.”
A middle-aged oriental man was walking behind Mark and seemed
to be keeping a sharp eye on everything. Marie had been replaced
as our driver by a huge mean looking dude who looked for all
the world like Bluto while Marie rode shotgun.
Once we started to move we ended up in a Suburban sandwich
with one in front of us and one behind and with the cop car
leading off. David and I were seated next to each other with
Mark and Larry behind. As the car started to move David reached
over and took my hand squeezed it and smiled.
Once we got out of the airport proper
and onto the freeway I noticed that our speed was steadily
increasing. It was completely
dark out now and the traffic had thinned. I watched over Marie’s
shoulder as the speedometer climbed from forty, to fifty, to
sixty, to seventy and then once we were west of the city and
beginning to climb it was increased even more.
We slowed for our exit from the freeway
but once past that they hit it again. At our driveway there
was a security man
with a flashlight waving us thru the gate, which was standing
open. As we went around our circular drive I saw 700 meters
to the east a helicopter hovering over the stand of pine trees
that marked the eastern limit of our property. A powerful searchlight
shown down from it it’s bright light raking the trees
and burning into the undergrowth.
For the first time ever the house seemed full and I realized
that that was what it had been designed for. Every bedroom
had a private bath and some sort of sitting area. Every common
room with the exception of what we called the family room was
formal and could be shut off from the others.
David had taken off for his and Mark’s
room and Larry was taking a shower so I wondered into the
family room where
Mark stood alone looking out the large window down into the
valley. I walked over to him and he smiled and spread his arms.
I grinned and walked into them. With my arms around Mark he
wrapped his around me and I pushed my face against his shoulder.
I felt completely safe and something more.
I shook my head slightly. “Don’t think I’m
getting too strange but the scent of you makes me calm………like
I feel safe.”
Mark laughed. “My grandfather always did that for me.
You never forget that scent. It’s one of my strongest
I held him tightly. “Funny, it’s different with
David. His scent evokes slightly different memories………still
“He does for me too.”
“Does he? Yeah but for you it’s
probably more of a romantic thing.”
“For sure. But I’d bet that
Larry does that same thing for you.”
I pulled back and looked at him. “Yeah,
He kissed my forehead. “Well anytime you need a fix
I’m only too happy to oblige and remember it works the
other way too.”
“Just that your scent creates a
strong emotional reaction in me and always will.”
The room that we call the library we use mostly for doing homework
and going onto the computer. It’s a large room with
bookshelves on three walls and one wall of windows looking
to the north and a rocky slope that drops off quickly. At
one end there’s a desk and credenza and at the other
a couch covered in rich brown leather with two overstuffed
chairs facing it.
David sat down on the sofa and lifted
his briefcase and set it on the coffee table. He patted the
seat next to him. “Relax,
Kiddo, this will take a little while.”
I sat down next to him. “Am I gonna
David laughed and shook his head. “Nope. At least I
don’t think so. It’s really more a question of
tidying things up.”
I looked at him and raised a questioning eyebrow.
David slipped off his shoes and put his
feet up on the coffee table. “Of course you’re familiar with your trust
fund and how it was started with the money that your dad left
you. Something that you don’t know is that a year or
so after I started that trust fund I also started another one
I was taken aback and started to speak
but David held up his hand. “You have to remember that the world was a different
place then. At the time I thought that you having some money
out of the country and completely unknown to the authorities
might be a good thing. And at the time my business had begun
to make some very serious money, certainly more than Mark and
I would ever spend. But, now with communications the way they
are plus the fact that I’m all but certain that Gerhardt
is about to make my plan redundant I decided it was time to
merge the two trusts.”
I said, “IRS?”
He grinned. “Well, I’ve been negotiating with
them and we’ve come to an agreement we both can live
I said, “I didn’t know that
“Well, actually I negotiated with Emma’s nephew,
he’s a Deputy Commissioner.”
I smiled and said, “Oh.”
“Yeah….well anyway we agreed and I sent them a
check yesterday so it’s all legit.” He took his
feet off of the table and turned on the sofa to face me.
The other thing, Alex, is that your life
is about to get a lot more complicated. Well, over the next
couple of years anyway.
The money that you have in your trust fund now and what may
be coming from Gerhardt has a way of complicating things. Hell,
even if I’m totally wrong about Gerhardt the money that
you have now is more than enough to complicate things.
The other thing is that Mark and I gave
the attorneys the go ahead to create the Chauvet-Kerry Foundation
something that I’m going to want you to become involved
in. And I would like you to start participating, at least in
some way, in my company. At least I’m hoping that that’s
something you’d want to do.”
I was skeptical of my ability to do that and told him so.
“It’s okay, Alex. For one thing you wouldn’t
be doing anything that would directly affect clients portfolios,
at least not at first. It’d really be a case of getting
familiar with what happens, what the procedures are. Then if
you think that it’s something you’d like to get
into you can go further.” He grinned. “It’s
easier than digging ditches and the pays good.”
David had the ability to totally look
like a teenager when he wanted to and he was doing it now. “The point that
I started to make was that you’re going to need some
help to handle all of these things and not drive yourself batty.
Now you can veto this if you want but I asked Joan to fly in
here Monday and set up an office for you. Actually she’s
already found some office space in the high rise building near
the campus.” He paused and grinned at me. “Whadya
“Dad, do you really think I need
“Maybe not yet but you will soon.”
“More than sure and the thing is that I want you to
have this in place before it gets frenetic so that you don’t
get buried. Look at all that you’ve got going already;
there’s the shelter, your studies, working out with that
Nels guy, your visits to the shrink and God knows what else.
The ten percent of your trust that you’re going to be
managing amounts to over twenty million and it’s going
to take more of your time than you think. Plus I want you involved
in my company and then, of course, whatever Gerhardt comes
I knew that I didn’t really have a choice because this
was the kind of thing that David was always right about. “So
what do I have to do?”
“Nothing yet. Let Joan handle it, she’s very good.
The first thing she’ll do is find someone to head up
the office for you and then she’ll work with whoever
that turns out to be in hiring whoever else is needed.” David
reached over and shook my knee with his hand.
“Don’t look so glum. I’ll pay for all of
it and it’s gonna help you more than you can imagine.”
“How come you’re paying for
David shrugged and grinned. “The money doesn’t
matter. Besides I’m hoping that all that organization
will make it easier for me to lure you into my company.” David
put his hand on my knee. “Before I forget it how is it
going with the psychologist?”
“It’s okay, Dad. He says my problem……..well
that it’s pretty common……..well given the
circumstances and that it shouldn’t be all that hard
At that moment Mark and Larry appeared in the doorway.
I got up and wrapped my arms around Larry
and he did that same to me. “Crunch me.” I like
it when Larry squeezes so hard that my back kind of pops.
Mark plopped down on the sofa next to
David and said, “You
guys done talking? We got bored waiting.”
David grinned. “It wasn’t anything top secret.
But now that everyone’s here what do you guys think of
leaving a few days early for the meeting with Gerhardt, it’s
coming up soon?”
Larry sat normally in one of the big
armchairs and I sat with my butt in his lap and my back against
one arm of the chair
and my legs over the other arm. I could feel his dick pressing
up against my ass. This actually was a little weird because
I couldn’t remember us ever being together with my dads
quite like this. It was like we were two gay couples which
of course is exactly what we were but it still felt strange.
David said, “What I was thinking is that we’ve
got that flat in London that we use maybe once a quarter and
I thought we could get some use out of it. Would you guys wanna
mess around in London for a few days? I mean I know that Gerhardt
is giving you guys a vacation but if I know him, and I do,
it will probably be Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland,
which is all really great but there’s a lot more to see.
You could spend a month just doing justice to the V & A.”
I looked at David and grinned. “Dad, there’s no
way I’m spending a month in a museum.”
He grinned at me and said, “Not to change the subject
but do you guys have any dressier clothes? You’re both
getting to the age when, at least occasionally, you’re
going to need to wear a suit and occasionally even a dinner
I glanced at Larry and we both said at
the same time, “Suit?” David
“I’ve got that navy blue suit.” I looked
up at Larry’s face.
He said, “My dad bought me a black suit a couple of
years ago.” The last time we wore suits was at Emma’s.
David was smiling and shaking his head. “Look, I know
that you can both afford to buy your own clothes but I made
an appointment with a friend of Jamie’s in London. He’s
a tailor that I met a few years ago and he’s really brilliant.
I’d like you guys to let me buy you some decent clothes.
It’s not going to be that long before you both start
some sort of business life and you’ll need a good wardrobe.
Besides that, the clothes that Thomas turns out are unbelievable.
I told him pretty much what you guys’d need but if you
want to add anything, do.”
I didn’t really “get” why
David wanted to buy us suits and gave him what apparently
was an odd look.
He smiled back at me and said, “It’s a dad thing.
Besides this is probably the last time you’ll let me
Larry surprised me by quickly picking
up on what David was saying and what he really meant. He
glanced at me squeezed
my left leg and said, “We’d really appreciate that,
I suddenly remembered that David had
never answered my question about security. “So what is it with all the security?
I’ve never seen you travel with this much.”
He glanced down before answering and
Mark casually draped his arm over David’s shoulder. “From
time to time Mr. Tam gets antsy but I usually take his suggestions.”
