Chapter 22

After Aunt Marie and Uncle Steve left, I cleaned the table, put the dishes in the dishwater, and headed to my room. I looked for my mother, but I didn’t see her in the family room. I guess she had gone into her bedroom to watch television.

I locked my door when I entered my bedroom. I still didn’t trust Stacy. At least for a while I would have to watch my back around the house. Stacy won’t be happy until she gets some kind of revenge. Not only would I have to be careful at home, I would have to be careful at school. Fortunately, Stacy isn’t very popular. In fact, most girls try to avoid her. I won’t have to worry about her getting a group of girls to do something to me. I can deal with just my sister and Maggie. I’ve been doing it for several years.

I was playing a game on my computer when someone knocked on my door. My mother hollered from the hall, “Seth! Someone is here to see you.” I carefully opened my door and peeked out. Ty was standing nervously behind my mother. She told him to come into my room, and then she turned and walked away.

I locked the door after he came in. I smiled and said, “Hi, Ty.” I was curious why he had come to see me. He has visited me before, but it is when we are going someplace. He is usually in my room for just a few minutes.

He smiled nervously at me and replied, “Hi, Seth. How are you?”

I walked over and sat on my bed. He stood reluctantly at the door before finally coming over and sitting beside me. I gave him a puzzled look and asked, “Why are you here?”

He pulled a book bag from his shoulder and sat it on the floor. “I brought you some assignments you’ve missed,” he replied as he pulled a folder with papers from it. “I didn’t want you falling behind because of…” He stopped and his face began to redden. “I mean,” he replied nervously, “you shouldn’t fail classes just because you’re…” He stopped and stared at me. “Sorry,” he replied. He thrust the folder at me. “Here’s some assignments.” He started to get up, but I grabbed his arm and pulled him back on the bed.

“Stay, Ty,” I begged. “I really want to talk to you.” He didn’t resist and sat back down beside me.

He asked nervously, “What do you want to talk about?”

I smiled and joked, “How about the weather? Is it raining outside.”

“No,” he replied as he gave me a puzzled look. “It’s not raining.” He looked around the room and hesitated before asking, “What happened Saturday night? I’ve heard so many rumors today at school.” I remembered that Ty and Maryanne hadn’t gone to Jimmy’s party after the dance. He wasn’t aware of what had happened.

“Um,” I stammered. “What did you hear?”

His face reddened as he replied, “I heard that Stacy found you and Craig having sex at the party by the pool.” His face reddened even more. “They said he was on his knees sucking your dick. Is that true?”

I knew it was useless to lie. Ty would find out sooner or later, and he would be upset if I lied to him. “Yeah,” I answered truthfully. “It’s true. Are you mad?”

He smiled and replied, “Why should I be mad? You’ve got enough people mad at you.”

“God, Ty,” I laughed. I don’t know why, but I reached out and hugged him. “I love you, Man. You’re a good friend.” His body went rigid as I embraced him. I pulled away and quickly said, “I’m sorry, Ty.”

“No,” he replied as he looked at me. “It’s okay.” It surprised me when he gave me a big hug. “I was really worried about you. Some students said you tried to kill yourself.” He pulled away as his eyes widened. I think it surprised him as much as it did me that he hugged me tightly. “I’m sorry,” he apologized.

I laughed and replied, “What are we apologizing for? We’re good friends. Can’t we show that we care for each other?”

He shrugged his shoulders and said, “Yeah, I guess so.” He grinned and added, “Just don’t try to kiss me.”

I don’t know what came over me. Perhaps, the past couple of days had been stressful. But suddenly, I became playful. Ty and I always got along great. Walking around the mall with him on a Saturday was one of my biggest pleasures. I stared into his eyes and asked challengingly, “What if I do?”

His eyes widened, and he replied, “You wouldn’t.”

I giggled and said, “Wanna bet?” I pushed him back on the bed and straddled his body. It surprised me when I felt his dick begin to harden as it pressed against my ass.

“Seth! Don’t!” He squealed as he tried to push me off him. He wasn’t resisting much, and he continued to push his body against me. I could feel his erection rubbing against mine.

“Don’t what?” I laughed as I looked into his eyes. My mind was screaming out that I should stop. I was in all the chaos now because I listened to my little head, and I let it rule my emotions. However, my dick was throbbing inside my shorts. I noticed Ty look at it several times.

I had never thought of Ty sexually. He was just a good friend. In fact, until Craig and Blake came into my life, he was my only friend. Now, Ty knows I’m gay, and he’s lying underneath me with a raging hard on. He could easily throw me off and leave. But he doesn’t. He’s laughing and smiling as much as I am. He seems to be as playful as me.

He laughed and said, “If you try to kiss me, I’m going to stick my tongue in your mouth.” That was all I needed to hear. He wasn’t mad and threatening to hurt me. It sounded like he was challenging me to kiss him.

“You wouldn’t!” I giggled as I moved my lips closer to his. He laughed and stuck his tongue out. I leaned down and began sucking on it.

“Eww!” he laughed as he leaned forward and wiped his lips against my shirt. “You didn’t!”

I replied challengingly, “And I’ll do it again if you stick your tongue out.”

And Ty did it. He grinned and stuck his tongue out again. I leaned down and started sucking on it. He moaned and let me do it. As he did, he thrust his erection against mine. He withdrew his tongue, and I stuck my tongue in his mouth. I thought I would come in my shorts when he began sucking mine.

I withdrew my tongue, and we began to kiss passionately. His lips were fuller than Blake and Craig’s lips. He moaned again when I began to nibble on them as I kissed him. “God, Seth,” he moaned as he put his arms around me and held me tightly. “This is my dream come true.”

I pulled away and looked into his eyes. “You’ve dreamed about kissing me?”

His face reddened as he replied, “Yes.”

“Why didn’t you tell me?”

He gently pushed me off him and sat up. “I didn’t want to ruin our friendship,” he replied sadly. “Besides, no one knows I’m gay.”

“I had no idea,” I replied. “I wish you had told me.”

“I wish you had told me,” he answered nervously. “I didn’t know you were gay until I saw you with Blake. Are you and him boyfriends?”

I replied, “It’s complicated.”

“Why?” he asked, “Because of Craig?”

Ty started to get up. “Maybe we shouldn’t have done what we did.” Tears started to well up in his eyes. “I’m sorry.” He started to walk away, but I grabbed his hand.

“Sit down, Ty,” I pleaded. “We can’t just leave things like this. We’ve got to talk about it.”

“What’s to talk about?” he asked sadly. “You’ve got Blake and Craig. There’s no room for me.”

I smiled and replied, “I can make room for you?”

“What do you mean?”

“I’ve learned that love doesn’t have to have walls and boundaries. I can love two guys at one time.” I leaned in and kissed him. “I can love three guys.”

Ty shook his head. “I don’t know, Seth. That’s kind of weird.”

“What’s weird about it?” I asked. “Can’t a person love many people at one time?”

He replied, “Sure you can love many people at one time, but…”

“But what?”

“Are you having sex with both of them?” he asked, “That doesn’t seem right?”

“Why is it not right? Who said that?”

“Well,” he tried to answer. “You’re just supposed to have sex with just one person.”

“Who said that?” He shrugged his shoulders. “Aren’t you and Maryanne having sex? Don’t you think about other girls?”

“No!” he squealed. “Maryanne and I aren’t having sex!”

“You aren’t?” I asked surprisingly. I know Ty confessed that he was gay, but I assumed he might be bisexual.

“No,” he replied as his face reddened. “We’re just good friends. Her mother is my mother’s best friend. They hooked us up.”

I laughed and said, “My mother tried the same thing. I guess it’s a thing for mothers to do.”

“I guess,” he responded with a shrug.

 I grinned and asked, “So, you’re still a virgin?”

His face turned fifty shades of red before he admitted, “Yeah.”

“Listen, Ty,” I said as I took his hand and held it. “I’m not going to force you to do anything you’re not ready for.” He nodded his head. “I like you, and you like me. We’ll just see where things go.”

“You won’t tell anyone, will you?”

“No,” I assured him. “I won’t.”

“What about Blake and Craig?”

I replied, “I’ll let you tell them if you want to.”

He grinned and asked, “You’ve done something with both of them?” I smiled and nodded my head. His eyes widened and he asked, “Together?” I laughed when I saw him reach down and rearrange his growing erection.

“Together,” I answered. “It was really hot.” I reached over and grabbed his dick. He didn’t resist as I started to stroke it. I leaned forward and kissed him. I then whispered in his ear. “You want to find out how hot?” He didn’t reply. He lay back, and I unbuckled his pants and snaked out an impressive seven-inch dick. He moaned as I began to suck him. He became so loud, I had to put my hand over his mouth and warn him to be quiet. When he came, he filled my mouth with warm cum. I swallowed it and then kissed him passionately. He began to unzip my pants, but I stopped him.

“We’ll wait,” I said. “Let’s think about this. I don’t want you to do something you’re not ready for.”

“Seth,” he replied. “I’ve dreamed about doing something with you for years. You’ve got to let me do it.”

“Are you sure?” He nodded his head. I lay back and he pulled my shorts down. Blake and Craig are good cocksuckers, but Ty is an expert. I wondered if he had been telling me the truth when he said he was a virgin. He seemed to have mastered deep throating. I had tried to do it with Craig a few times, but I usually ended up gagging. Ty, however, had no problems inhaling me to my pubes. My eyes rolled to the back of my head several times before I came into his mouth. He didn’t even gag when I shot it down his throat.

When he finished, I sat up and looked into his smiling face. “How was it, Seth?” I couldn’t even answer. I grabbed his face and pulled him into a passionate kiss. He surprised me when he pushed some cum into my mouth. I was still throbbing with excitement.

“Wow!” I said excitedly. “Where did you learn to do that? You took all of it? It was incredible.”

Ty grinned and asked, “It was?” His face reddened when he added, “I have a banana for breakfast every morning.”

“Damn,” I laughed. “Want to eat breakfast together tomorrow?” His face reddened even more.

He leaned in and gave me a quick kiss. “I’m glad we finally came out to each other.”

“Me, too,” I replied. I laughed and added, “And came in each other.” I looked at Ty, and he had suddenly changed. He was no longer just a guy I knew at school and occasionally went with him to the mall. Over the past hour, he had become more than a friend. And I felt closer to him than I did with Blake and Craig. I knew I would feel guilty later, but for now, being with Ty seemed right. I didn’t feel the chaos rising around me like it had in the past.

Maybe things are going to get better. Maybe Ty is what I needed all along.

It took him several minutes to leave. We couldn’t stop kissing. Finally, I pushed him from the door. “Will I see you tomorrow?” he asked hopefully.

I hadn’t really considered returning to school. However, I knew I would have to return someday. Now I knew that Ty would be there waiting anxiously for me. Maybe it won’t be so bad after all.

After he left, I went into the kitchen to get something to take to my room to snack on. When I entered, Mom was sitting at the counter reading mail. She asked, “Did you and Ty have a nice visit?”

I gave her a puzzled look and replied, “Yes, we did.”

She shook her head. “It’s a shame you can’t find a nice boy like Ty to date.” I had just reached into the refrigerator for a can of soda, and it slipped from my hand. Fortunately, it didn’t spill out onto the floor.

“What?” I asked surprisingly. It was the last thing I would have expected my mother to say. I figured I would have to wait until college to start openly dating a boy. However, it was probably her way of trying to get me to see someone other than Craig.

“Ty,” she replied. “He’s such a nice boy. He’s always so courteous when he comes here.”

“Mom,” I insisted, “I’m not going to date Ty.”

“Why not?”

I didn’t want her to know that he is gay. If she did, then she might be suspicious that we were doing something every time he visited me. After what happened earlier, I was hoping that he would want to do it again- and often.

I asked, “What makes you think he’s gay?”

Her face reddened slightly as she replied, “Well, he did come to visit you.”

I stood and stared down angrily at her. “Is this the way it’s going to be now? You’re going to think any boy who visits me is gay, and we’re doing something?”

“No,” she stammered nervously. “I’m not thinking that.”

I responded angrily, “Yes, you are. You never said a word to Stacy when Craig visited her. You didn’t know what they were doing. But you’re going to watch over me when someone visits.”

“It’s different,” she replied.

“How’s it different, Mom? Because I’m gay.”

“No,” she said. “Stacy promised me that she would never do anything with Craig. And you, well, you are sexually active.”

Rage was beginning to consume me. I was so angry that tears began to well up in my eyes. She trusted Stacy, but she couldn’t trust me. Maybe I did have sex with boys, but Stacy is no angel. If Craig had gotten hard that night, she would have had sex with him. I balled my fist and shouted, “I hate you!” With tears falling down my face, I stormed out of the room. After entering my bedroom, I slammed the door so hard a picture in the hallway fell off the wall. I locked the door and fell down on my bed and cried.

I knew as long as I lived with her that she would never trust me again. She had never liked me. Why, I’ll never know. Two people lived in the house, my mother and Stacy. I was no more than a figurine that was on a sofa table in the living room. I considered packing a bag and leaving. I knew I was always welcomed at Aunt Marie and Uncle Steve’s house. But why should I leave? I had done nothing wrong. It wasn’t my fault that Craig fell in love with me. Now, she wouldn’t even let him come into the house to see me. It was alright when he visited Stacy, and they made out in the living room. Mom knew what was going on. But she believed Stacy when she told her that they weren’t doing anything.

I pulled up the pictures on my phone. I got up and headed for the door. I was going to show Mom what Stacy had done. I wanted her to hate Stacy as much as she hates me. However, I stopped before I opened the door. If I did show Mom the pictures, then it would end my blackmail plan. Mom would be mad, and she would probably put Stacy on punishment. But then Stacy’s fear of Mom seeing the pictures would be over. Right now, I was a threat to Stacy. She had left me alone whenever she thought I was going to open my phone. She would ruin me if that threat were no longer there.

Suddenly, my cellphone rang. It was Craig. I walked over to my bed, lay down and answered it. I smiled when I heard his voice.

“Hey,” he said. “Miss me?”

I laughed and said, “It’s only been since this morning.” I reached down and played with my growing erection. “But, yeah, I miss you.”

“Have you heard anything about Blake.”

Suddenly, my erection softened. After Ty’s visit and the discussion with my mother, I had almost forgotten about Blake. “No,” I replied. “Have you?”

He said he hadn’t. We continued to talk for a few minutes about Blake. We were worried about him. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget his anguished screams for me to help him when his father dragged him out of the house. I suggested that we should check out our secret place after school tomorrow.

“I’m really nervous about going back,” he confessed. “Roni told me what some of the students were saying.”

“It’s not going to be easy,” I replied. “Are you afraid someone will hurt us?”

“Naw,” he laughed. “I’ll kick someone’s ass if they try. You stay with me, and you’ll be okay.”

“That’s what Ty said,” I giggled. Suddenly, I realized that Craig didn’t know about Ty. He knew him at school, but I don’t recall them ever talking.

“Ty?” he asked, “Ty Chambers? Ain’t he kind of tall with short brown hair. Looks a little geeky?”

“He’s not geeky,” I laughed. “He’s cute.” Oops, I did it again. There was a long pause at the other end.

Craig asked skeptically, “What’s going on Seth?” For a minute I was afraid he was going to get jealous like he did when he thought I liked Blake. “Are you holding out on me?”

He laughed and said, “If something is going on with Ty, you gotta let me in on the action.”

I had created a sexual monster. Not only had he had sex with me and Blake- and in a threesome, he was suggesting that he wanted to have sex with me and Ty. “It’s not like that,” I tried to lie. “Ty is just a good friend.”

“Yeah, right,” laughed Craig. “I know you, Seth. I can tell you’re lying. But, hey. It’s all good. Just make sure I get a piece of the pie.”

I wanted to change the subject. I asked, “What did Roni tell you? You said she heard students talking today.”

“Same old shit they always talk about,” he replied angrily. “It’s school. If there isn’t a good rumor going around, no one is happy. I’m sure people will be talking about us for months.”

“What time will you be at school?”

“Same time as usual,” he replied. “You wanna meet up in the parking lot and go in together?”

I was afraid that if we showed up together, it would really cause students to talk. However, they would talk no matter what we did. At least Craig could protect me if someone wanted to challenge us. “Yeah, sure,” I replied. “I’ll see you in the morning. Have a good night.”

“Um, Seth.”


“When you jerk it tonight, you better think of me and not Ty.” He laughed loudly before disconnecting. As I was getting ready for bed, my cellphone buzzed. I went to messenger and saw a message from Craig.

‘here’ it read. ‘Jerk off to this.’ Craig had taken a picture of his hard dick and sent it to me. Before falling asleep, I did as he instructed.
