The Good Doctor 32
Bad parents should go to Chucky Cheese when they die.
When my handsome intelligent young son
said, “Dad is
it okay if we have my birthday party at Chucky Cheese? They’ve
got pizza!” I shoulda put the kid on Ebay!
Instead I said, “Sure, Jase, let’s go Saturday
so that everybody can come. How many kids are there gonna be?” What
He held up his little fingers and tried to look innocent and
like a total jerk I fell for it.
“I think twelve dad.”
“Cool. They gonna give you presents?”
“I guess.” He gazed off into the distance in a
sleepy way like little boys do. Shit I’m an asshole!
“On Saturday maybe we can get Pete
to come. Is this his week to work at the clinic on Saturday?”
“I already asked him, Dad. He gave me a funny look and
said that he was sure that he had to work but that he’d
give me my present before I went.”
“Oh?” I pulled Jase to me in a straight guy hug. “Well
we’ll have a good time, Jase. Maybe Pete can come over
when he gets off work.”
I drop down into a chair at the kitchen
table and bury my head in my arms. Death by pizza. Jase sees
my dad in the family
room watching the ball game and goes screaming in there to
tell him about my near death experience except that he doesn’t
view it that way. To him it was fun.
Pete walks behind me and massages my
it wasn’t that bad. The kids had a great time.” He
felt sorry for me and came anyway.
My mother walks past and says, “Pete, don’t
She turns her attention to me and lightly slaps the back of
my head. Oh great!
“Eric, if you ever talked to another parent or paid
the slightest amount of attention to the world that your child
lives in you would have known what you were in for. It’s
your own fault.”
I mumble into my forearms. “Thanks mom.” Some
things never change.
Pete hunkers down next to me. “How
bout a drink, a beer, something stronger?”
My mother is slicing something and says. “If you baby
him he’ll never change. It’s Jase’s birthday
and he had a good time. End of discussion.” She’s
right. Fuck I hate that!
I get up and walk into the family room
wave a “Hi dad” and
scoop Jase up onto my lap while I flop down on the sofa and
watch the ball game. He feels like there are three or four
people inside of his skin all moving around as he twists and
turns to retrieve his sandwich on the coffee table.
I spoke softly and brushed his hair off
of his forehead with my hand. “You had a good time,
He nods yes vigorously and takes a bite of his sandwich. His
eyes never leave the TV.
“Where’d you get the sandwich?”
“What is it?
“Roast beef.” I didn’t
“Gimme a bite.” Jase holds
the sandwich up with both hands and I take a bite.
He says. “Don’t eat it all,
I talk while I’m chewing. “Jase,
you just had like thirty pizzas.”
He giggles. “Dad, it wasn’t that many.” I
coulda bought him a car for less.
Damn that’s a good sandwich. But I yell to my mother. “Ma,
should Jase be having this much mustard?” This is a little
like standing really close to the edge of a cliff just to kinda
She’s in the kitchen talking to Pete and when she hears
me she throws her arms into the air and I can imagine what
she’s saying. She comes to the family room with her hands
on her hips.
“I would give him something bad?”
“I just asked Ma, don’t get
all ninja on me.”
She throws up her hands and walks back
towards Pete. “I
don’t even know what he’s talking about!”
I kiss the side of Jase’s head and ask, “Did
ya like the helicopter?”
“It’s cool, Dad.” It’s
also sitting in the living room looking like it had been
attacked with a
Stinger missile. I wrap my arms around him and pull him back
against my chest while I bury my face in his hair. His eyes
never leave the TV.
Pete pulled me against him on the sofa
and I tell him, “I’m
a terrible father. My mothers right I should have been taking
more of an interest in Jase’s school stuff and the other
stuff going on in his life.”
Pete groaned. “Turn around Eric so that you’re
facing me.” I twisted in his arms, with the side effect
of rubbing our crotches together, until I was looking into
his sapphire blue eyes.
He kissed me on the lips and I kissed
back lightly. He spoke softly. “Eric, my dad went to
every ball game that I ever played in. He never missed anything
that I was in, he
was in the audience every single time. Not an easy thing for
a successful Cardiologist. But Eric, he never held me, he never
told me that he loved me. I knew that he did, my mom told me
so but I never would have gotten it from him.”
“Sweetheart there’s not a day that goes by that
you don’t tell Jase how much you love him and it’s
usually not just once but more like every two minutes. You
hold him, you kiss him, and you play with him. What you’re
giving him is irreplaceable and he’s thriving on it.”
I kiss him lightly and then bury my face
in his neck and mumble, “You’re
just saying that cause you like my butt.”
Pete kisses my forehead and says, “What I’ve said
is the truth.” He pauses. “How come you never wear
those gym shorts around the house?”
“What gym shorts?”
“The ones that you had on the other day. You remember………..the
I look into those eyes and run my fingers through his hair
and pull his head to me and we kiss lightly, a conversational
kiss. I lay my head on his arm and speak softly.
“ You liked those?”
“They were obscene!”
“You mean that in the good way,
Pete nuzzles my neck and slowly licks his way up to my ear
and all the while his left hand is working its way down to
my butt. Pretty soon his fingers are gently probing places
that like to be gently probed.
He sucks lightly on my earlobe and then
goes exploring with his tongue. His tone is playful. “Know what I wanna do?” His
voice is throaty and sends an electrical charge to the parts
of my body being gently probed.
“I’m taking you into that bedroom and laying you
out flat on your stomach and then I’m gonna spend an
hour eating your butt.”
Who am I to deny my boyfriend a good time?
I’m naked and spread-eagle on our bed and my hands are
clawing at the sheets as Pete slowly licks his way up the insides
of my thighs. He’s pulled my cock back between my legs
and now that it’s gotten hard it’s pushing against
the mattress like it’s spring loaded. He veers away from
my thighs long enough to lick the underside of my cock from
the head to my balls which he sucks into his mouth one at a
time. As each balls pops into his mouth the pleasure is just
on the border of pain and is exquisite.
I feel his tongue lapping at my perineum
and when I instinctively push my butt up and back he begins
to nibble at it and it’s
sending me into orbit. There’s something about my perineum
that is a total hotspot for me and Pete figured this out a
long time ago and now concentrates on it. He nibbles on it
for thirty seconds or so and then licks it and sucks on it.
I can feel the head of my dick sliding around in my precum
and then Pete gently lifts it an inch off of the mattress and
starts to suck gently on the head for a few seconds and then
runs his tongue all the way up to my butt.
I feel his big hands spreading my butt
and his tongue begins burrowing into my asshole as his hands
move up and grab my
butt just below my waist and pull me back against his face.
I’m moaning into the mattress as my ass is being reamed
out and I want that cock in me bad.
After about fifteen minutes of this treatment
and my butt muscles feel relaxed enough to drive a Humvee
up there and
park it and I’m begging for Pete’s cock.
Finally he gets on his knees and moves
into position. As soon as his cock touches my asshole I’m
pushing back against it and we both gasp as it moves all
the way into me as his
balls settle down against mine.
Later after we clean up I roll onto my left side and Pete
moves in against my back and pushes his right leg through my
legs and wraps his arms around my chest.
With his right hand he smoothes my hair
back and asks me, “You
I mumbled into his upper arm. “More
I feel him settling to sleep. “Been
thinking bout your butt all day.”
can do what you just did any time you want.”
I feel him lightly bite the back of my neck.
“Dad, Kathy Ryan told me something
“Who’s Kathy Ryan?”
“She’s a girl.”
“I figured by the name.”
“She’s at school.”
“What’d she tell ya?”
“It was about you and Pete.” Uh
“Yeah? What about me and Pete?”
“She said that kids aren’t
supposed to have two dads.”
“What’d you tell her?” The
“I told her that I liked havin
“So what’d the little bi………..what’d
Kathy say to that?”
“She said that it was a bad thing. She said that there’s
supposed to be a mom and a dad.”
For a moment the delicious option of
just having Jase repeat this to my mom wanders through my
mind but clearly a lot of
innocent people would get hurt if we went that route. “Jase,
lots of families only have a mom or only have a dad, or a grandma
or…….well almost anyone. So Kathy is wrong about
that. Lots of kids grow up just having whoever they have and
they do just fine. Lots of time moms and dads get divorced
and then there’s mostly only one of them running the
Jase looks up at me and says, “Okay.” But I know
that it’s not and I pick Jase up and carry him into the
living room and lie down on the sofa with Jase on my chest.
“Jase, remember the other day when
we were at the gym and I teased you and you got mad at me?”
Jase smiles. “You were being a
“I was being a jerk and that’s pretty much what
Kathy is being now. She’s saying something that she hopes
will hurt your feeling or make you mad and that’s being
a jerk and it’s not something that you should do to your
“So what should I do, Dad?”
“Well, Jase, before you do anything there’s something
that you gotta know and remember and that’s that Pete
and I love each other about as much as two people can and we’re
never gonna not be together. And that Pete and I love you more
than anybody has ever loved anybody and that we’re always
gonna be here for you.”
“So what should I tell Kathy, Dad?”
“You just tell Kathy that even
though everybody at school is talking about what a huge donkey
butt she has you still
wanna be her friend.”
Jase giggles. “She does have a
We both hear Pete coming in through the garage and Jase peels
off of me and runs to greet him. I twist my head in time to
see Pete scoop him up and walk into the kitchen with him and
then several minutes later Jase goes skipping into the family
room to watch television. I close my eyes and wait for my boyfriend
to come in and kiss my eyelids.
“Eric!!!” Oh fuck! “Eric!!!” What’d
I do? Can’t anybody else on this planet fuck up just
Pete’s handsome and tense face appears in the doorway. “Eric,
can I see you in the bedroom!” I know that this isn’t
Pete’s turned on his heel and disappeared
down the hall as I trudge after him.
He’s leaning against the bedroom
wall with his arms folded.
He’s glaring at me but something tells me that he’s
not at the one hundred percent boiling point.
“Eric you can not have that boy tell Kathy Ryan that
she’s got a big butt! It’s not the way to handle
this and her feelings will really be hurt. She and her mom
and dad are my patients.”
I start edging closer to him. “Well
if her mom is your patient you can tell where Kathy got that
“Eric that’s not the point and besides we’re
working on that. It takes time.” I know that he wants
“I went to school with her mother
and it took her about thirty years of shoveling Twinkies
into her mouth.”
Pete pushes off of the wall and puts his arms around me pulling
me close. This is more like it.
“Kathy Ryan is only part of the problem and you and
I both know it. This is something that Jase is gonna have to
learn to deal with.” He separates us enough to lightly
kiss me. “We have to deal with this carefully.”
