    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    I think that was intentional. If you remember at the start of the story, Aaron (along with every other student at that university, I assume) had to go to counselling because of the suicide of another character in Graduation. You're not the only one to have noticed it.

    Great chapter, ITC. I hope things start picking up for you soon.
    You depend on our protection yet you feed us lies from the tablecloth!

    I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you tonight.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    haha yeah that was intentional. I just wanted to remind the readers that this story is supposed to have parallels to Graduation and that the point of it is to show how one event can have an impact on so many lives.

    PJE: Shit, i didn't even catch that one. IDK y tho. Rachel was a bigger character than Alexis, kinda. maybe. not sure really. depends how you look at it but ya, now that u mention it i see it. DUH! LoL. Thanx for pointing that out tho.

    Well you did. i love it tho. i mean when an author can do something like that it shows how great they really are. not many can connect stories like that. Even greater when they can do it twice.

    i think i know how you got the name for your story. its like the Butterfly Effect, right?

    I love this story.

    Its taken me like a week to read it all since after each chapter I like to just let things sink in and really try to understand what you mean and all. You have some really deep things to say.

    So, thank you for writing such an amazing story.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    inthecloset, I am liking the story, but help me on some confusion here. I don't recall Luke & Aaron having any sexual contact, just kissing, before they have anal sex, that seems like a giant leap and Jonathan has just left the story completely with out any explanation. Did he drop out of school after he got out of the hospital?

    There seem to be loose ends left dangling.

    JUB has a limit of icons per Post.

    C'mon, admit it - they bring a smile to your face.

    I enjoy using a few, myself.

    In a truly global village, they, at least, can be understood by all!


    And I know, if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest . . .

    HA! Timm ...

    You're not the first, and I doubt you'll be the last, to bring up My "excessive" use of the "Smilies"!

    But, I have to admit they are just ONE of the many things I love about JUB!!

    And, like DQ pointed out, since we're mainly limited to "just words" here, they also help to convey/enhance the true intentions behind a post.

    So ... I doubt I'll be signing your petition!

    But, I'll be more than Happy to write down my phone number!!

    WELCUM to JUB!!

    And, yeah! ... no matter what ...

    Timm,

    The leap from kissing to full on sex between Aaron and Lucas is supposed to signify just how much Aaron trusts Lucas. Remember that up until this point, Aaron has been plagued by the memories of his attacker. If it weren't for Lucas, he wouldn't have been able to completely move past it. Aaron wanted to show Lucas just how much he meant to him by committing to the ultimate form of love. The act was supposed to completely seal their bond with each other.

    As for Jonathan, he was sent to rehab after the hospital released him because of the same policy that the hospital had when they sent Henry to rehab. They will both be making a return to the story sooner than you might think.

    Just keep in mind, this story is not finished, though the end is coming soon. Any and all loose ends will be tied up when the time comes. Any confusion should be cleared up and anything that doesn't seem to be relevant to the story should make itself clear in the coming chapters.

    And if I sound rude or in your face I apologize; that is not my intent. I don't want to discourage you from asking questions. I love answering inquiries and I love to hear what my readers think. If you have anymore questions that you wish answered please feel free to ask.

    Much love,
    - ITC

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    This is an amazing story, congratulations! Aaron's character is so deep and intense, and Lucas, well, he's perfect in every way, the man everyone dreams about. I started reading and spent the whole night awake because I couldn't stop until I finished!

    I have one question, though. Did Aaron met Cherilyn/Lynn before? Because he seemed to know her when they arrived at Travis' house, and I don't remember her being mentioned before.

    Keep up the good work!

    Cherilyn was mentioned in Chapter 9. She was the one who called Lucas down and left Aaron alone to find the essay about him. I didn't actually include a scene where Aaron and Cherilyn interacted together, but I felt that their interaction in the Cabin implied that they had at least met before or that Lucas had told him all about her since she's his best friend.

    And thank you for your kind comments. Currently working on the next chapter but I think I'm gonna have to break it up a bit and put off some of the intense stuff that I promised before. I should have it done by this time next week if I get my shit together and start writing lol.

    Much love,

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    HEY GUYS! So I know it's been longer than I said it would be. But I FINALLY got this chapter written. I finally found what I needed to find in order to start bringing this story to its final chapters. But don't worry too much, that's still at least 7 chapters away.


    I want you all to know I'm doing better. Things are going well and my friends have been amazing since I came out to them. I feel so much more empowered having people that know who I really am. I guess that's also part of why I haven't been so dedicated to writing now that I have a source outside these boards to vent myself to.


    Well, without any further distractions, here is:


    Wings of A Butterfly

    Chapter Fifteen:
    Somewhere Over the Rainbow


    The words were out of his mouth without hesitation. He didn't even look up from his plate. His mom stared at him in shock and his dad was looking in my direction. Luke looked peaceful as if the words he said had no effect on him at all. I looked back over to his dad who was looking angrier with each passing second... at me. I reached out to grab Luke's arm to make him see what was happening, but it was too late.


    His dad's arm came sweeping across the table and knocked me out of my chair. His muscles were clenched as he stood over me and lifted his leg. Luke just sat there eating his food as if nothing happened. I screamed out for Luke to help me, but no sound came out as his dad's foot came crashing down on my chest. Luke looked over to me and I could hear him saying something.


    “Wake up,” he said, “We're here.”


    I jumped in my seat as I felt Luke's warm touch on my shoulder. We were parked outside a luxurious peach colored house. I looked over at Luke and he was smiling at me.


    Thank God... just a dream.


    “You okay?” he asked, “You look like you saw a ghost.”
    “Yeah,” I said, “I'm fine... just a bad dream.”
    “Not about...” he said.
    “No,” I said quickly, “Those are gone.”
    “Good,” he said, “Might wanna put on your jacket. It's cold out there. Also, don't make a big deal about my house.”
    “Why?” I asked.
    “It's pretty big,” he said.
    “How big is 'pretty big' Luke?” I asked.
    “You'll see.”
    “How big?!” I asked.


    Luke said nothing as he got out of the car. I did as I was told and stepped out of the car, letting out a sharp breath when the cold air hit my skin. Luke came around the front of the car and took my hand and guided me to the front door. The door itself looked beyond fancy. It was mahogany with lavish Christmas decorations in front of it. There were two miniature Christmas trees on either side of the doorway and fake snow sprayed along the outer frame of the door. Luke pushed his key into the lock and charged through the threshold pulling me with him as he bellowed through the halls.


    “I'm home!” he yelled.
    “Hey bro!” I heard from the back hallway.


    A taller, tanner version of Lucas came walking down the hall. He was wearing a white tank top and silver gym shorts. He was muscular, though not as attractive as Luke. His hair was longer and darker and his eyes were dark brown instead of bright hazel. But their facial structure was incredibly similar.


    “You didn't tell me you had a brother,” I whispered as I pulled my hand away from his.
    “Sorry,” he whispered as he grabbed it back.
    “What's this?” his brother asked as he gestured towards me.
    “This,” he said nudging me, “Is the guy I told you about.”
    “Oh,” he said with a grin, “He's good looking. Good work lil' bro.”
    “Thanks,” he said with a grin, “Aaron, this is my brother Kyle.”
    “Uhm, hi,” I said, “I take it he knows?”
    “What that my brother's a homo? Of course,” Kyle said.
    “Oh shut up,” Luke said, “You're just jealous.”
    “Yeah I might just be,” he said as he put his hand on my shoulder.
    “Hey back off,” Luke said giggling.
    “Don't worry Luke,” I said, “He's not nearly as sexy as you.”
    “Oh snap, kitty's got claws,” Kyle said.
    “You bet your ass he does,” Luke said with a smirk.
    Kyle laughed and said, “Aight I gotta go get dressed. We're still on for dinner right?”
    “Of course,” Luke said.
    “So you're really gonna tell them?” Kyle asked.
    “Yeah that's the plan,” Luke said.
    “Alright well... good luck bro,” Kyle said as he dashed up the stairs.
    “So, you weren't kidding about this house,” I said, “How rich are you again?”
    “I'm not,” he said, “My parents are.”
    “Well, it's huge,” I said.
    “I told you not to make a big deal out of it,” he said smiling.
    “Sorry. So your brother seems nice,” I said as Luke showed me into the guest room downstairs.
    “Yeah he's been great since I told him,” he said.
    “When did you tell him?”


    I dropped my bags on the floor and sat down on the bed. It wasn't as soft as the bed at Travis' cabin, but it was very comfortable. Lucas pulled the chair away from the desk and sat in it backwards facing towards me. He took in a deep breath and looked at the floor.


    “I told him shortly after Michelle died.”
    “Oh,” I said.


    I reached my hand out and placed it on his forearm. He looked up at me and gave a halfhearted smile as he moved his hand on top of mine. I smiled back at him as he let out a sigh. The warmth from his touch passed into me and made my nerves go away temporarily.


    “I'm sorry,” he said, “I didn't mean to bring the mood down.”
    “Don't apologize,” I said, “It's alright.”
    “So what do you wanna do?” he asked, “I got a good entertainment system set up down the hall. We can watch a movie or play a game or something.”
    “I can't think of anything I would rather do,” I said with a grin.
    “I can think of a few things,” he said with a bigger grin.
    “Keep it in your pants Luke,” I said.
    “Aww come on!” he said.
    “Not in your parents house!” I said, “That's just too weird.”
    “I thought you liked weird stuff,” he said with the grin returning.


    I rolled my eyes as I stood up and lightly slapped the side of his head. He chuckled and followed me out of the room. When we were out in the hallway, he grabbed my wrists and pinned me against the wall. He had a big smile on his face as he leaned in and placed his lips softly on my neck. I felt his tongue brush against my skin and my heart started racing.


    “Fine,” he said as he released me, “No sex at all while we're here.”


    I sighed as he started walking away. He lifted his shirt off and turned around. He stopped in front of a door and stretched his torso adding a fake yawn to it. The muscles in his chest flexed and looked incredible in the dim light of the hallway. With an even bigger smile on his face, he placed his hand on the doorknob.


    “I guess I'll just take a nap in here... alone,” he said.
    “Oh it is so on,” I said under my breath.


    I went back into the guest room and sat on the bed. I took off my pants and laid down above the covers. The drive must have taken a lot more out of me than I thought because it wasn't long until I felt my eyelids start to fall. A smile crept across my face as I thought about what Luke was about to do; and he was doing it for me.


    * * *


    Luke


    I opened the door to the guest room to see Aaron in his tight blue boxers sleeping on his stomach. I smiled a little to myself and walked in, closing the door behind me. Sitting on the edge of the bed, I leaned in and kissed his cheek. His eyes opened slowly and he smiled when he saw me.


    “Hey,” he said sleepily.
    “Well hello there,” I said pointing at his obvious hard-on, “Dreaming about me?”


    He covered himself up and blushed as he sat up.


    “Your brother actually,” he said with a grin.
    “That was mean,” I said looking sad.
    “Oh whatever,” he said.


    He put his hand on the back of my head and pulled me in for a kiss. When our lips met, a swirl of emotions went through me. I returned the kiss and pulled him closer to me until I remember why I came in here. I pulled away slightly breathless and looked him in the eyes.


    “My mom just got home a little while ago. She's already started cooking and my dad should be home soon too,” I said.
    “Oh, okay,” he said, “Well let me get dressed and you can introduce me.”
    “Mmm, maybe one more minute like this,” I said pulling him back towards me.
    “Uh uh,” he said, “You said no sex at all.”
    “Oh you're good,” I said, “Fine put your pants on and make me sad.”
    “Oh don't even,” he said with a smile, “I'm not the one who took their shirt off and flexed.”
    “Maybe you should be,” I said smiling back.
    “Easy tiger,” he said, “Your mother is out there remember?”
    “Yeah yeah...”


    He got off the bed and walked over to his bag to pull out a fresh t-shirt. Like a flash of lightning he took his shirt off and put the clean one on. With his back facing me, he bent over to pick up his pants and paused for a second to look back at me. I quickly diverted my gaze and looked back when he turned away.


    “That's just not fair,” I said.
    “I didn't make the rules babe,” he said.
    “Someone's cocky,” I said sarcastically.
    “Just a little,” he said with a grin.


    I got up as he walked towards me. He stopped in front of me and I grabbed his sides, gently pulling him towards me. I closed my eyes as our bodies came together and brushed my lips against his cheek. His hands went around my neck as his chin rested on my shoulder. I could feel his heart going a thousand miles an hour against my chest. His scent rose up from him and filled my nostrils. It was like a cherry pie with chocolate mixed in.


    “Is everything okay?” he whispered.
    “Yeah, I'm just nervous,” I said.
    “It'll be fine,” he assured me.
    “As long as I have you here, I'll be good,” I said smiling.
    “That's really sweet,” he said.
    “I just... I want you to know that no matter how much I joke about sex, I really do care about you.”
    “I know Luke,” he said, “It's okay. I actually have fun joking around.”
    “I love you,” I said, “I really mean that.”
    “I love you too,” he said, “Now let's get out there and make complete idiots of ourselves.”


    I laughed as he pulled away from me and opened the door. I followed him out of the room and down the hallway. When we emerged, the smell of ham and potatoes overwhelmed me and made my stomach emit an audible groan. He looked back at me with a surprised look on his face.


    “Mom makes the best ham,” I said.
    “It smells amazing!” he said excitedly.
    “Haha be sure to tell her that,” I said.


    We walked into the kitchen together and saw my mom hiding among the many pots and pans in the kitchen. Her hair was tied up in a bun and she was wearing a floral print apron. She wasn't a tall woman but she was skinny. She turned and saw the two of us walking toward her and a big smile crept across her face. She took off her apron and walked over towards Aaron, extending her arms toward him for a hug.


    “Aaron! So good to finally meet you,” she said.
    “Nice to meet you too Mrs. Harper,” he said.
    “Oh please call me Anne!” she said with a smile, “Lucas has told us all so much about you!”
    “Oh really?” he asked, “Anything good?”
    “As a matter of fact, he hasn't had a bad word to say about you.”
    “Is that so?” he asked looking at me.
    “Hey, mom! Let's uh drop it okay?” I said with widened eyes.
    “Sorry,” she whispered, “My he's much handsomer than I thought he would be.”
    “Thanks,” Aaron said blushing.
    “You won't believe how much Lucas has been raving about you since the day he met you,” she said.
    “I said zip it mom!” I said.
    “Oh come on Luke,” Aaron said.


    I rolled my eyes and sat on the stool next to the counter. Aaron and my mom talked for a while about school and well... me. I don't know why I didn't expect it. About an hour passed by and Aaron finally joined me in the living room to watch TV. We kept our distance on the couch but occasionally stole glances at each other accompanied by a smile.


    Around 5:30 the garage door finally made that awful sound when opening to announce that my dad was home at last. When he came in we went through the same routine we went through with my mom. He greeted Aaron with a hug and told him all about how much I talked about him to my parents. Ten minutes later, Kyle finally got home from work and Mom called us to dinner. Kyle patted me on the shoulder as he passed me and Aaron and I locked eyes.


    We all sat down and ate, exchanging small chit chat every now and then. It wasn't until I had cleared my plate that Aaron grabbed my hand under the table. Kyle stared at me and Mom and Dad went on being completely oblivious to what was about to happen. I took a deep breath, squeezed Aaron's hand, and cleared my throat.


    “Mom, Dad... there's something I've been meaning to talk to you about.”
    “What is it Lucas?” Mom asked.
    “Well, you remember how when Kyle and I were growing up, we moved around a lot?”
    “Yes,” Dad said, “I'm really sorry about how much we moved Lucas, but it was necessary.”
    “I know Dad,” I said, “That's not what this is about.”


    I paused and waited a moment.


    “What's going on son?” Dad asked.
    “Well,” I said taking a deeper breath, “because we moved around so much, the only example of a family I had was ours. Based on that I had this image in my head of who I was supposed to become when I got older. But a few years ago, I realized something. I realized that I'm never going to be able to be that person. And when I realized that, I got angry at myself for who I was going to become. I repressed who I really was because I thought I was supposed to be someone else. And for the past few years, I've been trying to come to terms with and understand the person I really am.”
    “Lucas,” Mom said, “What are you saying?”
    “I'm saying... that...”


    I looked at Aaron, and then at Kyle. They both nodded to me and I took a deep breath again.


    “I'm...” I paused.
    “What?” Dad asked.
    “I'm gay,” I said.


    Silence. My heart was pounding in my chest. Aaron squeezed my hand tighter as I squeezed back. I took in another deep breath. It seemed like an eternity before someone spoke.


    “Are... are you sure?” Dad asked.
    “Yes,” I said, “And that's why Aaron is here. He's my boyfriend.”
    “Really?” Dad asked.
    “Yeah,” I said.
    “And this is what you want?” he asked.
    “It is,” I said.
    “I don't get it,” Mom said.


    She got up and walked slowly out of the room. My heart plummeted and tears rushed to the back of my eyes. Kyle was getting ready to stand up, but I put my hand out to him.


    “No,” I said, “I'll go.”


    I got up and walked down the hall toward the stairs. Slowly, I climbed each step making my way to the top. My heart beat with every step I took and almost stopped when I reached my parents' door. I knocked three times on the door and whispered to my mom.


    “Can I come in?” I asked.
    “Yes,” she said.


    The door opened slowly as I pushed it. I walked into the room, but didn't move past the doorway. She was sitting on her bed facing away from me. She didn't look at me, just waved a hand to signal me to come in. I stepped forward and walked slowly towards her side of the bed. I sat down next to her and looked at her, but she still didn't look up. She was crying.


    “Are you okay?” I asked.
    “I don't know,” she said.
    “It's not your fault you know,” I said.
    “I know honey, I know,” she said, “I just don't understand it.”
    “To be honest I'm not quite sure I understand either,” I said.


    She finally looked at me with a puzzled stare.


    “When I found out, I was confused,” I said, “And I have spent the past three years trying to understand what this means.”
    “What does it mean?” she asked.
    “I honestly don't know,” I said, “I still don't understand it all. But when I met Aaron, I had this feeling inside me that told me it was okay.”
    “You really like this boy don't you?” she asked.
    “Yes I do,” I said.
    “Do you love him?” she asked.
    “Yes,” I said with a smile, “I do.”
    “And you're happy this way?” she asked.
    “Happier than I've ever been.”
    “Well then,” she said with a sniffle, “I guess I have no choice but to be happy for you.”
    “I guess you don't,” I said still smiling.
    “I love you Lucas,” she said, “This doesn't change that.”
    “I know,” I said, “I love you too. You wanna go back out there?”
    “I need a minute,” she said.
    “Okay...” I said.


    I got up and walked towards the door. I heard her take in a deep breath. I walked out of the room to see Aaron sitting on the floor against the wall. He smiled when he saw me and stood up. I took him in my arms and sighed with relief when he wrapped his arms around me.


    * * *


    Aaron


    “What are you doing out here?” Lucas asked.
    “Your dad said I should be here just in case,” I said.
    “That's sweet,” he said.
    “Yeah,” I said, “He seems to be okay with it.”
    “Thank God,” he said.
    “How's your mom?”
    “She's okay, she just needs some time to process it.”
    “And how are you?”
    “I'm okay,” he said, “Tired, but okay.”
    “Oh well, you wanna go to bed?” I asked with a grin.
    “Aaron,” he said.
    “I know I was only jokin,” I said.


    We walked downstairs to the guest room. Hand in hand, Lucas lead me through the doorway and sat down on the edge of the bed. He sat down next to me and pulled me towards him. I looked into his eyes and leaned in to kiss him. Our lips pressed together and a chill ran down my spine. My fingers ran softly across the skin on his arms and he moaned softly.


    He pulled away, with a smile on his face. I was unhappy, but agreed that we should stop. Luke stood up and moved toward the door. I met him at the doorway and hugged him tightly. Our bodies were screaming to be together from the reactions we had every time we touched. I lightly kissed the side of his face as he placed his hand on the doorknob.


    “Good night,” he said softly.
    “Night,” I said, resisting my desires.
    “I'll be upstairs if you need me,” he said.


    He walked out of the room and closed the door behind him. My head hung in disappointment, but knew we shouldn't do anything sexual. I knew it, but I didn't care. With lightning speed, I flung the door open and stepped outside. Lucas was still standing there, as if deciding whether or not to come back inside. I grabbed him and pulled him into me, kissing him with all my strength.


    He pushed his body against mine and guided me to the bed after throwing the door closed. I lifted my shirt off of my body and he did the same. We climbed onto the bed together, both of us smiling to each other. Luke positioned himself on top of me and locked my in his against the bed. He leaned in and kissed my neck, moving down to my chest. The softness of his lips complemented each gentle kiss he planted on my skin. It was like being kissed by a ghost.


    When he got to my waist, he paused for a second. He ran his hand along my stomach, making me shiver in excitement. His hand stopped at my belt buckle and he looked up at me. I nodded to him and I could see the passion in his eyes. With a few swift motions, he hand my pants unzipped and was pulling them down around my knees. He rubbed the fabric of my boxers at my crotch with his hand. I quickly stiffened and he pulled my throbbing cock from it's cotton prison.


    He planted a kiss on the head of my cock before taking it into his mouth. I immediately let out a soft moan when I felt his tongue rub my shaft. His lips sent tiny shocks throughout my body as he moved up and down slowly. My grip on the sheets below me tightened as he massaged my balls with his hand. I moaned his name softly and his tongue flicked the head of my cock.


    He pulled his mouth off of my cock and flashed me a devilish grin. His hands went under my legs and pushed them up a little. I saw his head disappear under my legs and suddenly felt something wet and slippery slide into my ass. I gasped at the feeling, but welcomed it. I spread my legs a little more to give him better access and moaned as his tongue moved around my hole. My body was squirming with the pleasure that Luke was causing. He was sending so many shocks through my body, I thought I was about to go over the edge.


    “Luke stop,” I said gasping for air.
    “What's wrong?” he asked wiping his face.
    “I was about to cum,” I said with a smile.
    “Damn, you're easy,” he said.
    “Thanks jerk,” I said with a glare.
    “Joking babe,” he said as he leaned in to kiss my neck again, “So you ready for this?”


    He grabbed his crotch and shook it towards me. I giggled and nodded at him. His hands hooked under my legs and pushed them against my thighs. I made myself comfortable against the pillows while he unzipped his pants. When he had his underwear pulled off, he smiled at me with his cock pointed towards me.


    He moved closer to me and pulled the drawer of the nightstand open. He pulled out a box of condoms and winked at me. I smiled and blushed a little at him. With his teeth, he opened the wrapper and pulled the condom out. He leaned forward and grabbed a bottle of lube out of the nightstand drawer as well, squirted some into his hand, and rolled the condom onto his gorgeous cock.


    “Geez, what if someone actually went into that drawer?” I asked.
    “Please,” he said, “I put this in here while you were asleep earlier.”
    “Oh really? You were expecting this?” I asked.
    “Of course not,” he said sarcastically.


    He leaned forward and kissed me again. This time when he pulled away, I could feel the tip of his cock poking at my exposed hole. He slowly slid himself in and placed his hands on my knees. His grip tightened with every inch he pushed into me. By the time he was all the way in, I was gasping for air and he was squeezing my knees with the energy and passion of a bear.


    His body tensed as every muscle flexed when I squeezed my asshole around his cock. Our moans were simultaneous each time he thrust into me. His thrusts were soft, but powerful at the same time, his touch was gentle while being passionate, and his eyes never left mine. With each thrust, his eyes penetrated my soul as his cock penetrated my hole.


    And then it happened. We both tensed up as our muscles tightened. He leaned forward and kissed me. His tongue slid inside my mouth and danced with my own. He moaned into my mouth as his cock erupted inside me and at the same time, my cock exploded between our stomachs. With every ounce of energy inside of us, we simultaneously climaxed.


    We were both gasping for air. Luke lifted himself up and smiled when he looked into my eyes. He sat up and looked at me with a big smile on his face. With his hand, he scooped up some of the cum on my stomach and licked it off. He smacked his lips together licked them with his tongue. I laughed at him and sat up to kiss him. Tasting myself on his lips, I moaned softly. He pulled away from the kiss and chuckled.


    “We should go get cleaned up,” he said.


    * * *


    When we had gotten cleaned up and changed into some clothes to sleep in, we went up to Luke's bedroom. I had my bags with me and dropped them on the floor next to his closet. I looked in the open closet door and saw a rainbow flag hanging on the inside. I smiled and pointed to him with a questioning look on my face.


    “When did you put this up?” I asked.
    “A while ago,” he said.
    “And your mom never asked?” I said.
    “Uh,” he said, “We have a maid.”
    I blinked and said, “Wow. I underestimated how rich you really are.”
    “Now now, we've been through this before,” he said, “My parents are rich, not me.”
    “Well,” I said, “You sure get a lot of perks.”
    “Actually, now that you mention it... I was thinking about something,” he said.
    “What's that?” I asked walking over to him and putting my hands on his hips.
    “Well,” he said, “Seeing as how we're together almost every night already... and my parents agreed to pay for my living expenses.”
    “Yeah?” I asked.
    “I was wondering if maybe you wanted to get a place together when we go back next semester.”
    “Are you... Are you asking me to move in with you?” I asked.
    “A little,” he said.
    “Really?” I asked.
    “Kinda,” he said, “So will you?”
    “Of course!” I exclaimed.


    I hugged him tightly with a huge smile on my face. He lifted my face up to his and kissed me warmly. When he pulled away, he grabbed my hand and pulled me toward the bed. We got under the covers and I pushed myself up against him. Wrapped in his arms, I welcomed sleep as it crept up on me and took my consciousness away from me.
    Give me one firm place to stand, and I shall move the Earth...more than the 383 miles it would move anyway.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    ITC,
    It's GREAT to hear from you - both the good news you've had in your personal life, and the love reflected in your story.

    It was a lovely chapter. I could feel the emotions - from the nightmare of angst during the car ride to his mom's immediate sadness - part from her son being gay, but moreso, probably from the thought of him probably never coming to know the ultimate joy of sharing a new life made by you and your life's love. Children are a force within a nurturing soul that cannot be adequately described - without a reference point, it's something you can't fully comprehend.

    My oldest is 24, yet I can still remember the feelings, seeing him for the first time as he entered the world, as I cut the cord, knowing that he was the union of my love for my wife and hers for me.

    That is what I am sure his mom was feeling.

    I know they want the best for him - for him to be happy - and that is coming through in his father's gentle guidance.

    Then, the relief of the stress, and the passion - certainly an arousing (lol) Climax - or would that be denouement? to the chapter.

    Thank you for sharing both your real and your "fictitious" life with us.
    I'm glad you have a good support structure out there in the real world.

    We all need one - our orientation doesn't matter - just BEING matters.


    And I know, if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest . . .

    ITC,

    What an awesome chapter. How different that Luke's father was as accepting as he was and his mother was perplexed. It sometimes seems that it could be the other way around. Thank goodness the dream Aaron was having did not play out...lol Kyle seems like the older brother everyone would love to have. Coming out to anyone, let alone parents, is one of the hardest things to do, but in most cases, after everyone processes it, it doesn't change a thing. We are who we are and those that love us could care less. Looking forward to the two of them moving in together.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    Hey guys! So I was struck with some good inspiration this week and was able to crank out the first half of Chapter 16. Like Chapter 6, this is going to be a two part chapter, the second of which should be posted within the week. Like I promised, this chapter heralds the beginning of the end of Wings and is also the start of a couple rocky events for Luke and Aaron. Don't worry too much though cause it's still going to be a little while before I end this story. Without any further distractions... here you go!!


    Wings of A Butterfly

    Chapter Sixteen:
    The Nightmare Revisited


    The sunlight trickled in through the second story window. It kissed my cheek and gently brought me out of my slumber. When I opened my eyes, I noticed it wasn't the sun kissing my cheek, it was Lucas. I looked up into his eyes and smiled at him. He had his arm wrapped around my shoulder as I used his bare chest as a pillow. His neck was craned to give me a couple slight pecks on the cheek. I rubbed my hand on his stomach and took a deep breath in.


    I loved his scent. It was the only thing I ever wanted to smell. Every time I was near him, just his natural scent brought a big smile to my face. The combination of vanilla, peaches, and cream along with the natural smell of a human body washed over me every time he kissed me, and that smell always put me in the same state of mind. I enjoyed the kissing of course, but all I needed now was his smell to feel the way he makes me feel.


    “Good morning beautiful,” he said.
    “Are you kidding? I know how I look in the morning and beautiful isn't anywhere on my list of words,” I said.
    “But you are,” he said as he kissed my cheek again.


    I sat up and looked into his eyes. From the smile on his face and the twinkle in those hazel pools of beauty, I could tell he was serious. Apparently his idea of beauty was morning breath and really messy bed hair. He lifted his finger up and put it on one of my more prominent freckles. The smile on his face only grew bigger when I lifted my hand and held his finger in place.


    “Did you sleep well?” he asked.
    “Of course,” I said with a smile, “What about you?”
    “I had the most amazing dream about a wonderful guy who gave me a warm tingle every time he kissed me,” he said.
    “And who might that be?” I asked.
    “Jensen Ackles,” he said with a grin.

    I glared at him and flicked his exposed nipple.


    “Ow!” he said, “I was only joking!”


    I stuck my tongue out at him.


    “Do that again, I dare you,” he said.


    I did it again and he flew up and pinned me to the bed. He straddled my chest and started tickling me until I was writhing uncontrollably under him. I was laughing hysterically and tears were coming to my eyes when he finally stopped and pinned my arms to the sides of my face. He leaned forward and kissed me tenderly as my struggles weakened and my heartbeat increased. His legs shifted and he was laying beside me with his body pressed up against mine.


    He broke the kiss and said, “You have no idea how cute you are when you do that tongue thing.”
    “Well I'll just have to do that more often,” I said, “I could get used to waking up this way.”
    “Me too,” he said with a smile.


    He kissed me again as my hands went to his sides. His hands, no longer holding mine in place, were holding my face as his kissing switched from tender and loving to passionate and lustful. I could feel his stiffening bulge press up against my leg so I broke the kiss and looked at him.


    “Man you're a horny guy,” I said.
    “Sorry,” he said blushing, “I can't help it when I'm with you.”
    “That's either really sweet or really hot,” I said.
    “How bout both?” he asked kissing me again.
    “Mmm,” I said, “As much as I hate to spoil the mood, I really have to pee.”
    “Oh alright,” he said as he kissed me once more and let me out of his vicegrip.


    I got up and sat at the edge of the bed for a moment. I looked over my shoulder to see Luke grinning at me.


    “Havin a hard time?” he asked.
    “Ha ha ha,” I said sarcastically, “Very funny.”
    “If you need a little help there, just let me know,” he said.
    “Down boy,” I said smiling at him.


    When I was softened up a bit, I finally stood and made my way around the foot of the bed towards the bedroom door. Luke was at my side when I opened the door and following me down the hall. I got to the bathroom door and he was right at my heels when I walked inside.


    “Uh,” I said, “Where you goin?”
    “I gotta go too,” he said.
    “You can't wait?” I asked.
    “Why?” he asked, “Might as well save water and go together.”
    “That's kinda weird,” I said.
    “Aaron, I've seen you cum,” he said, “It's essentially the same thing, just a different color.”
    “Ugh fine,” I said.


    We stood at the toilet together. Luke pulled himself out of his pajama pants. He closed his eyes, tilted his head back, and flexed his shirtless torso as he pushed the stream out of his cock. I mirrored his actions, but nothing came out when I tried to push it. I just stood there, not doing anything. When he was finished, he opened his eyes and looked at me. A grin stretched across his face.


    “Havin trouble?” he asked.
    “A little,” I said.
    He gave my butt a little pat and said, “Come on slugger, it's just me.”
    “I know,” I said, “It's just a little weird for me.”
    “Would it help if I looked away?” he asked.
    “Maybe,” I said.


    He covered his eyes with his hand and turned away from me. I tilted my head back and closed my eyes. The stream started coming out and I heard it going into the toilet. Suddenly my muscles tensed up and the stream stopped midway through. I kept my eyes closed and tilted my head slightly in Luke's direction.


    “You're looking aren't you?” I asked.
    “How did you know?” he asked.
    “I can feel your eyes on me,” I said.
    “Huh... and you thought peeing together was weird,” he said.


    I finished and flushed the toilet. While I was stuffing myself back into my pants, Luke stuck his hand into the shower and turned the water on. He looked at me with an evil grin and patted my ass again.


    “While we're saving water,” he said, “How would you like to shower together?”
    “Now that I can do,” I said with a smile.


    We slowly took our clothes off and Luke locked the bathroom door. He took a moment and just stared at me. I could see his cock already starting to stiffen. I just gave him an eyeroll and a sarcastic smile when he moved closer to me. I took in that scent of vanilla, peaches and cream and was like melting butter in his hands.


    “Hey,” he said, his playful look replaced by a serious one.
    “What's up?” I asked, with a little concern showing on mine.
    “You know I'm just kidding around right?” he asked.
    “What do you mean?” I asked.
    “All the comments and the flirting,” he said, “I just want to make sure you know that's not all that's on my mind.”
    “Luke you don't have to,” I said.
    “Yes I do,” he said, “You said before that you didn't want this relationship to be all about sex. I just want you to know that it isn't. No matter what I say or how horny I may seem...”
    “Luke,” I said.
    “Let me finish. No matter what, this isn't what I love you for,” he said patting my ass again, “I fell in love with this.”


    He moved his hand from my ass to the left side of my chest; right over my heart. A tear came to my eye and I closed them tightly. I smiled to him and leaned forward to kiss him. It wasn't a passionate kiss, nor was it a seductive kiss. I gave him a genuinely loving kiss. You know, those kind that married people give each other. The kind that you only give to someone when you know in your heart that what you're doing is right, and that you never want to be without them ever again.


    That's how I was feeling about Luke. I had found a way to tell him, but it had to wait. I couldn't put those feelings into words at the time, but I had found something that could show him exactly how much I cared about him, and how much he meant to me. That “something” was sitting in a box in my suitcase. I was so excited to give it to him too.


    “Luke,” I said, “That's really sweet baby. I know how much you care, and the joking doesn't bother me. I actually have fun with it.”
    “I love you,” he said.
    “I know,” I said, “I love you too.”


    We both stepped into the shower together. There was enough room for another two people in that thing and still have room to be comfortable. Luke and I helped wash each other. It didn't last as long as I would have liked, and I was kind of curious how shower sex would feel, but Luke had plans for the day, and so did I.


    * * *


    I was sitting on the bed in sweats and a t-shirt as I watched Luke getting ready. He was putting on deodorant when he walked back into the room in just a pair of black boxers and white socks. A big grin spread across my face and he stopped in his tracks. He walked over to the closet and bent over to reach into a drawer for some clean pants. He peaked over his shoulder and caught me staring.


    “Like what you see?” he asked.
    “More than you know,” I said.


    I got up and walked over to stand next to him. I put my hand on his ass and looked into the drawer. With my free hand, I pointed at a pair of light blue jeans with a couple tears in the legs. They were my favorite pair of his and he grinned when I pointed at them.


    “Those make this,” I said squeezing my hand around his ass, “Look incredible.”
    “Then I'm wearing those,” he said.


    He pulled them out of the drawer and went to sit on the edge of the bed. He slid each pantleg on and stood as he pulled them up. When he had them all zipped and buttoned he turned around and showed me his ass. The jeans hugged each cheek perfectly and just made his ass pop out from the rest of his body. I smiled in approval and he smiled back at me. I took my place back on the bed and he went back to his closet.


    “Are you sure you don't want to come with me today?” he asked as he pulled on his Paramore concert t-shirt.
    “Yeah,” I said, “I gotta work on a surprise for you.”
    “Oh really now?” he asked as he walked over to me. He sat down next to where I was laying, put his hand on my leg and asked, “What kind of surprise?”
    “The kind you don't get to know about until that,” I said pointed at the sunlight outside the window, “comes up on Christmas morning.”
    “Aww come on Aaron,” he said. I was relieved he knew what I was pointing at.
    “Nope,” I said, “Not a chance.”
    “You're no fun,” he said getting off the bed, “Well, I'll have my cell if you need anything.”
    “You'll be the first to know,” I said with a smile.


    He stopped in the doorway, turned back towards me and came back to give me a heartfelt kiss that I felt all the way to my toes. He stood up and smiled back at me, grabbed his iPod off the bedside table, and walked out of the room. I heard a “Bye mom,” from downstairs and heard the front door open and close. And I knew he was gone.


    I quickly got up, threw on a jacket and grabbed my cell phone and backpack. I ran down the stairs and told Mrs. Harper... I mean Anne, that I'd be back in a couple hours. When I was out the door, I dialed Travis' number and held the phone to my ear.


    “Hello?”
    “Hey Travis,” I said, “Luke just left.”
    “Oh okay, well did he show you where we live?” he asked.
    “Yeah yesterday when we got into town,” I said.
    “Okay. Yeah we just got in about twenty minutes ago,” he said, “I'll be ready to go soon, if you could walk over here that would be great.”


    “Alright, I'll be there in a few minutes,” I said and hung up the phone.


    * * *


    It was about one in the afternoon when Travis dropped me off at Luke's house again. We had spent about three hours at the shooting range. He taught me everything about working a handgun. It was complicated stuff, but I took to it like a natural... at least in Travis' words. He even gave me a sort of starter kit to keep on me at all times. It wasn't for use, only for practice. Now I know what you're thinking, “Practice?” Well I'd tell you, but that would give away what happens next...


    I walked through the front door with the spare key Luke let me use. It was dark inside. I called out, but no one answered. The house was still warm though, so I must not have missed the last person who left by very long. Fortunately, no one would have seen me in Travis' truck so Luke wouldn't have known about my little bluff. I made my way upstairs, dropped my bag in the hallway, and took a quick bathroom break on my way to lay down in Luke's room and text him to find out when he was coming home.


    I thought I heard the front door open downstairs while I was in the bathroom, so I went down to investigate. The lights were still off, and the door appeared to be undisturbed. Just in case, I went over and turned the lock to give myself a little feeling of security. I looked out the window next to the front door and saw someone jogging by. On my way upstairs, I heard a thump come from the entertainment room Luke told me about the night before.


    “Hello?” I called out.
    No answer.
    “Kyle?” I called out.
    Silence.


    I took a breath and went back downstairs. I walked down the hallway and turned towards the closed door of the entertainment room. I took another breath and put my hand on the doorknob. My breathing increased slightly and my heart pounded a little in my chest.


    This is stupid.


    I turned the doorknob and walked in. The blinds were closed and there was no light coming into the room. I flipped on the light switch and saw what thumped. There was a black cat sitting in the corner and it's scratching post had fallen over. He looked at me with begging eyes so I walked over and lifted it up for him. I smiled at the cat, and noticed something off about him. He wasn't looking at me, he was looking past me.


    I turned around slowly when I noticed a rhythmic breaking sound behind me. When I opened my eyes, my heart jumped into my throat and my muscles froze. He was standing there. Who? My attacker. He was standing in the doorway of the entertainment room, staring at me. I closed my eyes and tried to wake up, but it wasn't a dream this time.


    His teeth showed as a smile broke on his face. He looked as if He hadn't brushed His teeth in months. His eyes were void of any humanity, and it sent a chill down my spine when He looked directly into my eyes. I tried to move, but I was frozen. I tried to scream, but my heart was blocking my voice from escaping. I had even noticed that my breathing had stopped.


    “What's wrong Aaron?” He asked, “Surprised to see me?”
    I couldn't speak.
    “You don't have to talk,” He said, “I missed you.”


    He took a step forward. My fear took complete control over me. I thought about my bag with the gun in it... upstairs in the hallway. I felt helpless and that made it impossible for me to move. He took another step closer, and I remained in the same place.


    “You never called me,” He said.


    He was right in front of me now. I could feel his breath on my face. It reeked of alcohol and cigars. My blood was pumping with adrenaline at this point. A million images flashed into my mind. The room, the smells, the nightmares, and Lucas. I closed my eyes again. This time when I opened them, I could see Travis where my attacker was standing. He was yelling at me to hit him.


    “Picture everything that has hurt you in the past, even the little things,” his voice rang out in my head, “and hit me.”


    My hand balled up into a fist. I heard Travis' voice ring out in my head again over and over. I closed my eyes, saw everything I went through, and when my eyes opened my attacker was standing there again about to pull me into Him. My fist flew at Him with all the anger and pain He had caused me to go through. My fist made contact with His face and He lifted off his feet and fell backward.


    This was my chance. I took off running down the hallway and up the stairs. I heard my attacker two steps behind me. I was almost to the top when I felt a hand close around my ankle and I fell forward, smacking my head against the wooden steps. My vision went dark and my mind went blank.


    Two seconds later, my vision returned. I was in the kitchen now. I tried to move my hands, but they wouldn't budge. I closed and reopened my eyes as my vision cleared. He was standing in front of me with a pissed off look on His face. He was holding my cell phone in His hand and glaring at me from the couch in the living room. I realized that He had knocked me out and while I was out, He tied me to one of the kitchen chairs.


    “I didn't appreciate that Aaron,” He said.
    I didn't speak.
    “I came here to see you, but now I don't know what to think,” He said.
    “You should get out of here while you still can,” I spat, “Lucas will be home soon”.
    “Oh come on Aaron, you make it sound like I didn't plan our time together at all,” He said, “He won't be home for a while. And his family won't be home any time soon either... at least not in time to do anything.”
    He stayed silent for a few minutes.
    “One second thought,” He said, “You hurt me Aaron.”
    He flipped open my phone and hit the buttons.
    “So now,” He said, “I'm gonna hurt you...”


    His voice trailed off as he started pushing the buttons on my phone. When he finished, he walked over to me and put the phone in front of me. I looked at the screen and was horrified with what I saw. It was a message to Lucas.


    TO: Lucas
    BODY: Luke, come home soon. I need to talk to you about something.
    Love, Aaron <3


    And there it was. He was going to hurt me by luring Luke back here. What he would do, I have no idea. But I started crying right there. He smiled an evil smile at me when he hit send. I just hoped that wherever he was, Luke would get that message and know it wasn't me. I hoped that he would stay away and stay safe.


    “Why?” I whispered.
    “Because you didn't love me back,” He said, “And now you're going to feel every ounce of pain I felt.”


    * * *


    Lucas


    My next stop was Bed Bath and Beyond. Dad had told me that Mom had her eye on this new dining set the past few times they had gone there. He had gone there alone last week and took pictures of it for me to pick up for him. I walked in and decided to detour and look at some bed stuff. I was feeling a set of sheets when I saw him. I froze in my stance and dropped the sheet I was holding in my hands between my feet.


    Jonathan was walking towards me. My eyes widened and I lost control of myself. The only thing missing when I launched myself at him was the girlish scream. I was all smiles when I jumped and started running towards him and tackled him with a hug. He smiled back at me and laughed when I knocked the wind out of him.


    “Oh my God! What are you doing here Jon?!” I asked.
    “I called your dad and he said you'd be stopping here,” he said smiling.
    “I missed you so much,” I said hugging him again.
    “I missed me too,” he said.
    I pulled away from him, looked at him questioningly and asked, “What do you mean?”
    “Luke,” he said as we sat down on the bed display, “When I left I wasn't me. I hadn't been for a long time.”
    “Jon,” I said.
    “No let me finish,” he said, “I'm really sorry for everything I've done Luke. It wasn't me, but it was my fault. I'm responsible for my own actions, but I'm back to being Jonathan again. That other Jonathan is gone and he's never coming back.”
    “Can I talk now?” I asked.
    “Yeah,” he said with a smile.
    “Jon I never blamed you for anything,” I said, “I meant that I missed you while you were in rehab. No matter what you did or what decisions you made I always loved you. You've been family to me for a long time and I missed you every day.”
    “Luke that means a lot to me,” he said, “So... odd question but, how is Aaron?”
    “He's good,” I said.
    “Luke,” he said, “I heard about you two.”
    “Oh,” I said, “How?”
    “Nick and I have been writing each other for a while. He told me everything... including that he was raped...”
    “Yeah,” I said, “He's fine now. It took a while but he's back to normal.”
    “That's great,” he said.
    “How does that make you feel?” I asked.
    “Honestly Luke, as long as you're happy it doesn't bother me,” he said.
    I smiled at him and said, “I'm very happy.”
    His face went serious for a moment and he asked, “How's Henry?”
    “Uh, I don't know Jon,” I said, “Aaron hasn't heard from him in a while.”
    “I still feel really bad about that,” he said.
    “I know you do,” I said.


    I felt a vibration in my pocket and pulled out my phone. My screen displayed “1 New Message: Aaron” on the screen. A smile stretched across my face as I flipped my phone open and read the message from my boy. But that smile was quickly wiped away by a chill in my spine. It must have shown on my face because Jonathan noticed it.


    “What's wrong?” he asked.
    “Uh, I'm not quite sure,” I said as I showed him my phone, “I just got this message from Aaron.”
    He read it to himself and said, “I don't get it.”
    “Look at the bottom... the 'Love Aaron' and the heart,” I said.
    “I'm trying to jump on your thought train, but you're moving a little too fast for me,” he said.
    “It's... It's redundant,” I said, “Aaron would die before he said anything redundant.”
    “What are you saying Luke?” he asked.
    “Whoever sent this...” I said, “It wasn't Aaron.”


    To be continued...
    Give me one firm place to stand, and I shall move the Earth...more than the 383 miles it would move anyway.

    ITC,
    Well, you gave us a couple of minutes of almost wedded bliss before you dropped the hammer on us ~ or Aaron as the case may be.

    It's good to know Jonathon is out of rehab and mentally healthy, again.

    What about Ben? Hmmmm. WHAT about Ben?

    You continue to craft a compelling tale, ITC.

    Looking forward the the second half of this chapter - I think!

    Ben is another friend who suffered a mental break down.
    I suspect he's flown the psychiatric ward coup.

    Just in case it's unclear, the attacker is the guy who raped Aaron before. Any other confusion will be made clear in the next half of the chapter - including the man's identity and information about Henry.

    @ Don: What's all this Ben nonsense?

    HA! "Only" 5yr. can seem to be a "long" time, and, yet, be all that swift/short!

    Just try to not be TOO surprised what a difference that can make, or how fast it happens!

    OMG, ITC,

    Here comes another of your famous cliffhangers....... Great half chapter with all the emotions; love and romance, mystery and terror.... I love it! Lucas is smart though. Recognizing and knowing Aaron so well to realize something is amiss. Can't wait for the second half of Chapter 16.

    Well I think this chapter is just about as finished as it's gonna get. I don't have much more to say other than "Enjoy" so...

    Enjoy!

    Wings of A Butterfly

    Chapter Sixteen:
    The Nightmare Revisited (Part 2)


    “Whoever sent this...” I said, “It wasn't Aaron.”
    “What are you talking about Luke?” Jonathan asked.
    “I'm telling you, someone else sent this message,” I said, “I gotta go find out what's going on.”

    I stood up and started to walk away. Jonathan grabbed my arm and stopped me before I had even taken more than two steps.

    “Luke stop,” he said, “If you're right... and someone else sent this message, then you going there is what they want.”
    “It's a lure...” I said with sudden realization.
    “Yes,” he said.
    “I don't care,” I said, “If it is, they have Aaron. I have to go.”
    “Well then I'm going with you,” he said.

    He was at my heels as we dashed out of the store into the parking lot. We were in my car and on the road in seconds as I sped toward my house. It wasn't far away, but it seemed to take forever to get there. I was freaking out about Aaron, hoping he was okay and hoping that this was all just a sick joke of Travis'. My heart was beating twice as fast as Aaron made it beat...

    * * *

    Aaron

    “Well,” He said, “He should be on his way now.”

    He looked at the clock, then back at me. With an evil grin on His face, He came over to me and put His hands on the back of the chair. I heard Him grunt behind me as the chair moved towards the entry way of the house. By now, he had put duct tape over my mouth and any noise I made was a hushed grunt from my throat. My face was covered with tears and my eyes were stinging because of how scared I was. I couldn't get the image of Travis' gun in my bag out of my head... and was cursing myself for deciding to leave upstairs.

    “Might as well give you a good view of the festivities,” He said, “Wouldn't want you to miss a thing.”

    He walked back into the kitchen and grabbed one of Anne's longest and sharpest knives. A slight whimper escaped my throat when he looked back over at me. Each step he took sent a shiver through my body. I closed my eyes tightly when He squatted next to me, knife in hand, and put His free hand on my arm.

    “Don't worry Aaron...” he said, “This isn't meant for you... yet.”

    He took a deep breath and stood up. He walked over to the door and looked out the windows. He looked at me and smiled his creepy evil smile.

    “I bet you're wondering how I found you,” he said.
    I whimpered in my throat.
    “I've seen you and Lucas together you know,” he said, “You two seemed to be really good friends. I wanted to ask you out you know, but Lucas just got in the way every time I tried.”
    He walked back over to me and knelt on my side.
    “I saw him kiss you that night,” he said, “When I was walking back to my car from the Astronomy building, I saw you guys. You looked shocked and when I saw you walk in and leave him there... I knew that was my chance to have you.”
    I mumbled into the tape covering my mouth, but I knew he wouldn't understand.
    “I found you the next night, walking alone... I needed to have you Aaron. But you ignored me when I came up to talk to you. So... I did what I had to do.”
    He moved his hand to his neck and made a “Zzt” sound imitating the taser he used on me.
    “When we got back to my dad's apartment, I told you I loved you. We made sweet love that night, but you tried to run out on me. I couldn't let you pull a one night stand on me so I grabbed you and you went flying into the wall... a couple times. You even fell on my dad's favorite ashtray. He was so furious when he got home the next day that he burnt me with his cigar. But I forgave you easily. I had to give you a few doses of Morphine to stop you from screaming so loudly though.”
    I glared angrily at him.
    “You just wouldn't cooperate Aaron,” he said, “So I walked you outside and disappeared for a while. I thought if I gave you some time, you'd be able to give in to our love... but I guess that hasn't happened.”
    He stood up again.
    “If you won't love me, then you won't love anyone.”

    * * *

    Lucas

    The car ride was silent. Jonathan left me alone with my thoughts, but I wish he hadn't. When you're afraid for something, your own thoughts can be your worst enemy. Time seems to slow down and lets you think about all the horrible things that could be happening, and all the horrible things that you always wished would never happen. My thoughts were no different than anyone else who was faced in a stressful situation. I was terrified.

    We were about a block away. I decided not to park close to the house, just in case. We walked around the corner and I could see the side of my house from there. We reached a windowless wall and I told Jonathan to keep quiet. I sat against the wall gathering my courage. I thought about Aaron's smile and that gave me what I needed to stand back up. With my nerves in order, Jonathan put his hand on my shoulder and looked straight into my eyes.

    “Luke, I'm sure everything's fine,” he said.
    “I hope you're right,” I said handing him the hide-a-key hidden in a false rock, “You go in through the back. If you hear or see anything, and I mean anything, call the cops. And if you do anything else, make sure you get Aaron out of there.”
    “Okay,” he said, “I promise Luke.”

    He went around the side and opened the gate as quietly as he could. I walked around to the front door. I stood there for a moment, allowing Jonathan time to get to the back door. I took a deep breath and pushed my own key into the lock and turned it. With another breath, I pushed the door open. Sitting there, tied to a chair about ten feet away from the door was Aaron. Our eyes locked.

    * * *

    Aaron

    He went out of sight when a shadow cross the window in the middle of the door. He held up a finger to His lips and made a “shh” noise as he backed into the study off to the left. The shadow stood there in the window for a moment, and then I heard a key push into the lock. Time slowed down as the lock turned and the door pushed open.

    When the door opened and I saw Lucas in the doorway, my heart sank in my chest. Our eyes locked, and panic raced through my veins. I wanted to scream. Every ounce of me wanted to tell him to get out of here and save himself. He gasped, shut the door slightly and ran toward me. He looked into my eyes and ripped off the duct tape that was covering my mouth. This was my chance.

    LUKE GET OUT OF HERE,” I screamed.

    But it was too late. He came out from the study and hit Lucas over the back of the head with the knife handle. Lucas fell to the ground and He stood over him. I screamed as loud as I could for help out the slightly opened door. He stood up, looked at me with a grin, and walked over to shut the door. Tears were running down my face as He knelt over Lucas' unconscious body. He raised the knife up and held it there for a second.

    YOU SON OF A BITCH!” a voice screamed from behind me.

    I turned to see Jonathan swinging a vase towards my attacker. It hit Him square in the side of the face and knocked him on the ground. Jonathan picked up the knife and started cutting at the ropes holding me in place. After my initial shock left me, I finally realized what was going on.

    “What are you doing here?” I asked.
    “Saving you,” he said.

    Jonathan was halfway through the ropes on my left hand when He stood up again. My eyes widened in fear as He walked up behind Jonathan.

    “Behind you!” I yelled.

    But Jonathan didn't need my help. He pulled the knife from my bindings and swung it around behind him, stabbing it into His leg. The screams of His pain echoed throughout the house as Jonathan rose to dash to the back rooms of the house. He went off after him down the hallway, limping on his wounded leg with the knife still sticking out of it.

    My binding was torn loose, so with all the strength I had, I lifted my arm and broke the rope. I frantically grabbed at the rope binding my other arm and untied it. Moving quickly, I used each free hand to untie each leg. Finally free, I ran down the hall after Him. I turned the corner and found him pounding his fist into a locked door.

    “Hey!” I yelled.

    He turned towards me. His face was contorted in rage. Before I knew what was happening, my hand lashed out in front of me and struck his throat. He stumbled backward, choking on the strike to his trachea. It felt good. Another rush rose in me and I swept my leg under his feel and he fell to the floor, still holding his neck.

    “I'm not gonna run from you anymore,” I said, “I'm not running period.”
    He looked at me with those dead eyes.
    “Get up,” I said.
    He just stared back at me.
    GET UP!” I spat.

    He rose to his feet cautiously. My anger flowed through my veins like lava. It burned me inside and the only way to stop the burning was to punch it out of me. I flung my right fist outward and hit His stomach. I flung my other fist out and it struck His face. One more strike. I knew this was it. It would knock him to the ground and he'd be out. I retracted my right fist and brought it around to the side to hit him once more in the face. But it stopped short. His hand blocked the path and squeezed around my fist.

    He smiled an evil smile and punched me in the stomach. He knocked the wind out of me and I fell backward onto the ground. As I was gasping for breath, He stood over me. He knelt down and grabbed my throat. His fingers closed around my neck and closed my airway. I was struggling under His grasp when I saw the door behind Him open and Jonathan jumped onto His back. He rose out of shock and Jonathan screamed at me.

    AARON RUN!

    I rose to my feet and He tossed Jonathan from His back. I took off down the hall and ran toward the stairs again. He was hot on my heels though. I was only up one step when I felt my feet be pulled from beneath me. I learned from last time though and stuck my hands under my head to keep from hitting the steps. I kicked my feet free and started crawling up the stairs. He cackled behind me and grabbed my feet again, pulling me back down. I kicked again and got further up the stairs.

    More laughter came from behind me. As I got to the top of the stairs, I could see my bag next to the bathroom door. I crawled desperately towards it as He laughed some more from behind me. He grabbed my foot and didn't let go. I lifted my other foot and kicked the side of His head. His grasp on my ankle released and I reached for my bag. I opened the pouch and stuck my hand in. My fingers wrapped around the gun handle as he grabbed at my legs.

    “No where to run Aaron!” he yelled.
    I pulled the gun out of the bag and pointed it right between his eyes. He froze. I won.
    “I'm not goin anywhere,” I said.
    I climbed out from under him and slowly stood up.
    “You heartless... Thieving... Waste of human flesh.”
    “You won't shoot me,” he said. There was a quiver in his voice.
    “You think I won't?” I said. My eyes locked on his, “I'm not the same defenseless person I was the night you raped me.”
    His eyes filled with tears when I said this.
    “I've changed since that night. You took my life and you turned it into a nightmare that I couldn't wake up from. You took my dreams and you turned them into a living hell. And you took the one most IMPORTANT THING I HAD.”
    His arms were shaking now as he held himself up.
    “And all I have thought about since that night... was how much I hate you.”
    The fear left his face completely and desperation took it's place.
    “Now,” I said as I pulled the hammer of the gun back, “Tell me again that I won't shoot you.”

    Lucas came running up the stairs holding the back of his head. He looked straight into my eyes and saw what was going on. He begged and pleaded me with his eyes to not do what I was about to do. I looked at him, my expression never changing.

    “I'm sorry Luke,” I said.

    I pulled slightly on the trigger.

    “No Aaron!” Lucas yelled.

    The gun clicked. Nothing happened. He sat there on the ground and I knew the precise moment his entire life flashed before his eyes. I smiled up at Lucas when confusion swept over his face. I lowered the gun to my side and knelt down beside Him. His breathing was ragged as he was choking on tears and his own fear.

    “I hate you more than anyone can understand,” I said, “But you are not worth another second of my life.”

    I raised my fist and punched him out. He stayed on the ground; his unconscious body remained still. Lucas walked over to me and took me in his arms. He started crying immediately and my own tears fell to his shoulder. I held on tightly and so did he. Our mutual fear for each others' lives fell out of us with our tears. We pulled ourselves together and when our embrace broke, Lucas took a good look at our attacker laying on the ground, then turned his attention to the gun in my hand.

    “It's not loaded?” he asked.
    “It's disabled,” I said, “Travis gave me a disabled one to work with and keep myself from forgetting what he taught me about.”
    “That's what you were doing today?” he asked.
    “Yeah... sorry,” I said.
    “Don't be sorry,” he said, “I'm just so glad you're okay.”
    “Me too,” I said as I hugged him again, “Go downstairs, make sure Jonathan's okay. Then call 911.”
    “Okay,” he said, “What about you?”
    “Give me a minute alone with him,” I said.
    “No,” he said, “We're gonna have to tell the cops everything. Don't make it worse Aaron.”
    He looked at me with pleading eyes.
    “Okay,” I said, “For you.”

    * * *

    The police arrived as did an ambulance. They examined all three of us and besides a couple of cracked rips and some sore heads and knuckles, we were okay. The police took us to the station so we could give them our detailed reports. One by one we went in to tell them what happened. There was enough there to charge him with breaking and entering and attempted murder. We would have to testify at his court hearing, but they assured us that even without it there was enough to send him away for a long time.

    Luke's parents arrived at the station to pick us up. Anne's arms went immediately around Lucas. Her tears from an hour ago were not hidden well and she still had more tears to cry. His dad just hugged him and whispered into his ear. When they were done with Lucas, I was expecting the four of us to climb into the car and go home, but they turned their attention to me and gave me the exact same treatment. I'd like to say I've had someone worry like that over me before... but it would be a lie. As horrible as the circumstances were, it made me feel good.

    They finished with me and did the same with Jonathan. After they released him, I swallowed all the bad feelings I had towards him and walked over to him. I stood in front of him, staring into his eyes. He extended his hand between us to shake mine. I simply shook my head and pulled him into a hug. I kissed his cheek and hugged him tightly.

    “Thank you,” I said, “You saved our lives.”
    “You saved mine,” he said.

    We were sitting in his bed now. It was after midnight and neither of us could sleep. We were quiet, but our arms were wrapped tightly around each other. Out of the silence, Lucas filled the room with his sweet soft voice.

    “He was in my Astronomy class,” he said.
    “Really?” I asked.
    “Yeah. He was there when we were stargazing,” he said, “His name was Kevin.”
    “How did he know where to find us?” I asked.
    “He and I talked all the time. I told him everything about us,” he said.
    “He said he's been watching us Luke.”
    “I'm not surprised... the kid was really weird,” he said rubbing his head, “He knew my weak spot.”
    “Your weak spot?” I asked.
    “Yeah, I fell off my bike when I wasn't wearing a helmet as a kid... landed on my back and hit my head on the pavement. It left a little fracture in my skull. It was microscopic, but with enough force, a blow to the head could kill me... I told him all about it.”
    “Oh baby,” I said as I kissed the back of his head gently.
    “I was so scared when I saw you,” he said. The sadness was clear in his voice.

    I hugged him tighter and didn't let go. I fell asleep with Luke in my arms. He must have rolled away from me because I woke around 2 in the morning to him putting his arm around me and his face on my chest. I stirred and looked down at him. His eyes sparkled in the moonlight coming through the window, and they were focused on me.

    “Can't sleep?” I asked.
    “No,” he said softly.
    “You okay?” I asked.
    “No,” he said again.
    “What's wrong?” I asked.
    “I don't know,” he said, “I'm just really scared.”
    I wrapped my arms around him and kissed his forehead.
    “Is this how you felt before?” he asked.
    “Yes,” I said, knowing exactly how he felt.
    “God... I had no idea Aaron,” he said, “How did you get past it?”
    I sat up in the darkness and looked at him. He sat up too and looked at me.
    “You wanna know how I did it?” I asked.
    He nodded.
    “I let you protect me for a while,” I said, “And then I realized that I needed to be strong. I knew you were there to fight for me, but I realized that I needed to be strong enough to fight for you too.”
    “Aaron that's so sweet,” he said, “But I don't know how to do that.”
    “Just let me protect you for a while,” I said, “And then, when you're ready, you'll realize that having something to fight for makes you stronger.”

    I leaned forward and kissed his cheek. When I pulled away, he grabbed my neck and pulled me back to press his lips against mine. Once again, it wasn't passionate or horny like his usual kisses. This was a genuine and loving kiss. It was soft and it was gentle. I could feel how much he loved me in the way he kissed me. He pulled me on top of him and kissed me some more.

    We didn't have sex that night... We made love. And it was incredible. His touch was more gentle and caring than ever. There wasn't a single second where either of us weren't smiling, even while our lips pressed together. We ended the night with a very sincere “I love you” to each other. His arms were wrapped around my torso and mine were holding him close to me as we both drifted off into our much needed sleep... and despite the events of the day, both of us were smiling.
    Give me one firm place to stand, and I shall move the Earth...more than the 383 miles it would move anyway.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    ITC,
    A very powerful chapter, and very well written.

    The rush to the rescue and the joint efforts of Luke and Jonathon to save Aaron from the demented Kevin was exciting, to say the least.

    The poignancy of the click of the gun, and the caring from Luke's parents to all three boys was great, as was the late night role reversal, and their tightened bond.

    Thank you.


    And I know, if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest . . .

    All I can say is "Bravo." Funny how you think you want to know this attacker as a character mentioned earlier in the story, but he is really nothing but an evil specter that has brought our boys together. All three of them. Now comes the healing. And for Jonathan, out of tragedy comes friendship, well deserved.
    ITC, that was an awesome chapter.

    Re: Wings of A Butterfly

    @ Craiger: I learned that little trick from Bones and the whole Gormagon series. Sometimes the attacker being no one is worse that the attacker being someone you know. It makes it easier for them to move through the shadows that way.

    @ DQ: I love your comments. You always make me feel better about my writing

    @ LTS: You can relax. It's gonna be an easier ride for a bit :P

    I LOVED the disabled gun. It was so awesome, so powerful. It was like the ultiate "fuck you, you don't scare me anymore" move.
