Apple of Her Eye
Chapter 9
Heaven does exist here on earth. I’ve found it with Todd. We kissed for hours. Well,
actually about ten minutes; however, it seemed like hours.

“What’s this?” He grinned as he reached over and pinched my hard cock through my
jeans.

“The same thing as this,” I giggled, pinching him back. What a difference a week
makes. The last time I sat on a bed with a guy, my life turned upside down. Now, it
felt like it was finally turning around. Things were definitely getting better.

“I gotta go,” he announced. “I’m going to be late for dinner.” I didn’t want him to
leave, and I could tell he didn’t want to either.

“All right.” I quickly gave him a kiss.

“Will I see you tomorrow at school?” I asked.

“You’re going back to school so soon?” he asked with a worried look on his face.

“Yeah, I guess,” I replied. “I have to go back someday. Might as well be tomorrow,”

“Sure. I’ll meet you at your locker before first period, okay?”

I gave him a puzzled look. “How do you know where my locker is?”

“I’ve been noticing you the past couple of years. You just didn’t see me.” He started
blushing that crimson red again.

“I guess I was blind then.” I smiled, grabbed his hand and pulled him up from the bed.
“One thing is for sure, I’m not blind now.” I gave him another quick kiss. We left the
room, holding hands while we walked downstairs into the kitchen.

Mom looked over at us and noticed us drop our hands. She began to smile. She
asked Todd, “You want to stay for dinner?”

“No, Mrs. Carson,” he replied politely. “My parents are expecting me home soon.”  He
grabbed his thin jacket and put it on.

“Let me drive you home then,” Mom told him as she grabbed a sweater out of the
closet and retrieved her purse from the counter.

“That won’t be necessary,” he said. “I can walk home.”

“Nonsense. I can’t have my favorite student catching a cold. It’s cool out tonight, and
you only have on a thin jacket.” She’s getting into her ‘Mom Mode.’ Poor Todd.

“Gary, you stay here and take your shower. I’ll be right back and finish dinner. We
also need to have a talk.” She looked me directly in the eyes and raised her eyebrow.
She then put here arm around Todd’s shoulder and led him out the door.

Oh No! Not ‘The Talk.’ She knows I liked Todd, and she’s seen us holding hands
twice. She’s not naïve. God, I hope she didn’t want to talk about S-E-X with me. Not
with my mother!

I went into my bedroom and removed my clothes. I looked at myself in the mirror.
Most of the bruises were now turning a faint yellow. They didn’t look too bad.
Fortunately, I hadn’t been hit in the face, so there weren’t any visible marks there.   I
had taken a couple of kicks to the back of my head which had caused me to pass out,
but they weren’t noticeable. The only sign that something had happened to me was
the cast on my right arm.

I walked naked down the hall to the bathroom. I turned on the water to the shower.
When it was hot enough, I stepped in. The water felt good running down my back. I
turned around and let it hit my chest. Soon, it was hitting my dick. That got a
reaction!  I hadn’t taken care of business for the past week, and my make out session
with Todd hadn’t helped either. My dick was rock hard!

I began to stroke it with my left hand. I usually jacked off with my right hand; but
since it had a cast on it, I couldn’t do it like I normally do.

It was difficult. I couldn’t get the right rhythm going. I was so horny that I had to do
something. I grabbed the soap and lathered myself good. Then I closed my eyes and
thought of Todd. I imagined that he was here with me, and that it was him stroking
my cock. It was his hand wrapped around me, and I was stroking him back. Then he
began to rub on my chest, and I could sense that he had dropped to his knees. I
imagined that he was sucking on me.

Oh, yes! It was working! I could feel my balls tighten, and I knew it  wouldn’t be long.
Yeah. Todd was sucking my dick, taking all my six inches down his throat. Suddenly,
the cum shot out onto the wall. It splattered everywhere while I continued to stroke. I
must have shot four or five good loads. It felt good.

I let the water wash away the cum while I tried to regain my breath. I couldn’t believe
I just imagined having sex with Todd. We hadn’t even discussed it yet. I knew we
were both not ready for anything serious, but it sure didn’t hurt to think about it.

After showering, I tiptoed naked back to my room. I could hear my mother in the
kitchen preparing supper. I put on some sweats and went down stairs to join her.

“Have a seat, dinner is almost ready.” She pointed to my chair, and I sat down. She
made two plates, put them on the table and then sat down across from me. We ate in
silence for several minutes.

“You and Todd seem to be getting along pretty well. Do you like him?” she asked,
breaking the silence.

Oh, no! No, Mom! Not here! Not now! I’m not ready for this. ‘The Talk’ was coming.    
I just knew it.

“You know if you and Todd become serious, you have to be careful,” she stated.

“Mom, I can’t have this conversation with you!” I shouted.

“Nonsense. Why not?” she asked. “If you can’t talk to me, then who can you talk to?”

“I can talk to Mr. Henderson,” I responded. Mr. Henderson was the guidance
counselor at school and a very good friend of my mother’s.

“Oh, Pooh!” she said. “Mr. Henderson is so old, he probably doesn’t even remember
what his dick is for anymore. He thinks you only use it to pee.”

I was taking a drink of milk as she said this, and I instantly spit it out across the
table. I took the napkin and wiped my very embarrassed face with it.

“Mom, I can’t believe you said that.” I was laughing hysterically and tears were rolling
down my cheeks. I looked over at my mother, and she had the widest smile on her
face.

“Good. Now we’ve broken down the barriers. Let’s talk.” The laughter left her face,
and she became very serious.

“Honey,” she began. “I’ve been around young people all my life. I’ve seen first hand
what teenage sex can do to kids who experience too much, too soon; especially when
they aren’t mentally prepared for it.

“I’ve seen kids fall in love one day, and then fall out the next. I’ve watched a young
girl give her bodies willingly to some boy she thought she loved, only to have him
drop her afterwards and then brag about it to his friends. To him it was just another
notch on his belt.

“I’ve watched fifteen year old girls get pregnant and then have to raise the baby
alone. The father would just leave her, and many times her family would refuse to
help. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve comforted a girl who had just had an
abortion and couldn’t live with the guilt.”

I sat there and listened to her intently. She knew what she was talking about, and she
loved me enough to tell me all this. ‘The Talk’ was becoming a learning experience.

“There are diseases that can come with sex, especially unprotected sex. Besides
pregnancy, which I guess we don’t have to worry about.” She grinned as I turned a
beautiful shade of red. “There’s syphilis, gonorrhea, and herpes. Since you’re gay,  
you have to be aware of AIDS and HIV.”

She reached down and picked up a book off the floor. “Here. I want you to read this.”
I took it and read the title. It was a book about gay teenagers and the risk of HIV.

She then reached down and handed me a small bag. I opened it, and inside was a box
of condoms and some lube.

“Mom!” I shrieked. “I can’t believe you bought this!” Where did she buy this stuff?
Everyone in town knew my mother, and she couldn’t just walk into a drugstore and
buy the items without raising eyebrows. I had been red earlier, but now my face was
scarlet!

“I know you probably don’t need these now,” she said as she gave me a questioning
look. I vigorously shook my head, “I’d rather we be open with each other, than to
have to prepare a funeral for you someday. I love you too much to pretend that these
things don‘t exist or they won‘t happen to us.” Tears were beginning to form in her
eyes.

“You’re a smart boy. You’ve always made good decisions in the past, and I’m going to
trust that you continue to make good decisions.”

“I love you, Mom!” I got up and walk around the table. She held out her arms and I
sat down in her lap. We threw our arms each other and embraced.

“Now get your fat ass off me!” She pushed me off her lap and onto the floor. “What
have I been feeding you?” We started laughing uproariously. What I had dreaded
earlier had actually turned out to be a good experience.

“Now go upstairs and do your homework. You have school tomorrow,” she said as
she got up from the table. She grabbed the condoms and lube and tossed them to
me.

“I don’t ever want to know if you use these,” she informed me. We both burst out
laughing again.

“I wish I had them this afternoon,” I said jokingly. Her face suddenly paled.

“Just kidding!” I laughed. “You should have seen your face!”

I grabbed the book and turned my back to walk out, when suddenly a red slipper hit
my back. I turned around and she was removing her other one. I quickly fled the
room, laughing all the way up the stairs.

I sat at my desk and worked on the assignments that Todd had brought me. It   
wasn’t much. Most of my teachers were pretty cool. I was an honor student, so they
knew I could easily catch up when I returned.

After finishing, I started to read the book Mom had given me earlier. I was astonished
by what I read. I had never given STD’s much thought; but since I had now possibly
had a boyfriend, it was something to consider.

It amazed me the statistics I read about teenagers and HIV. The book said that one-
fourth of all new infections in the US involved people twenty-one and younger. Most
HIV-infected youths didn’t even know they were infected because they were never
tested. It went on to say that most people diagnosed in their twenties and thirties
had probably been infected in their teens.  I’m glad my mother cared enough about
me to give me the book. I probably would never have discovered the information on
my own.

I finished reading and snuggled into my bed. It had been a very interesting day. I had
kissed my first boy, who I hoped would be my boyfriend. I still didn’t know if we could
officially call ourselves a couple. We hadn’t gotten that far. I was enjoying his kisses
so much, it just didn’t seem important then. I guess we have a lot to discuss.

Before I drifted off to sleep, I thought about returning to school. It had been almost a
week since I was last there. The rumors must have been rampant. I guess the worst
thought was that of having to face Shaun again.

It was the first time I had really thought about him over the past few days. Todd had
been a pleasant distraction. However, in reality I still had to deal with Shaun, my
former best friend.
