    "Off Limits"

    Hello everyone! This is the first story I've written for public viewing, so thanks for taking the time to read it! (That is, if you continue to read the next post. )

    The first chapter may be a little slow, but I hope you all like it so far and I promise the ball will get rolling much faster in the following chapters.

    Please forgive my typos! I proof read, but I'm sure some things will slip.


    I appreciate your feedback!!

    Re: "Off Limits"

    * * * * CHAPTER ONE * * * *



    “That’s the last one!” Dominick said as he slammed the trunk of the yellow sports car.

    “Jesus! Tear my car apart why don’t you?!” Claire shouted back from the driver’s seat. He didn’t bother to explain that he was accustomed to applying more force to the trunk on his old clunker.

    As he slid into the passenger seat, Claire was updating the GPS with the address to their hotel. It was their first road trip together and their first trip to Las Vegas since either of them was of legal drinking age.

    “Let’s have a premature high five for the awesomeness to come. There’s a good chance this is the only part of the trip we’ll both remember!” Claire said as they shared a laugh. Dominick plugged in the iPod and started their Vegas Playlist. It was a carefully concocted series of songs to prep them for a week of partying like they’d never experienced before.

    It was no surprise that the drive went by quickly. Although it was a solid eight hours, the music and gossip kept their minds off the distance. They arrived in Vegas around 10:00 p.m. and the city lights made their eyes widen with awe.

    Claire was hanging up her clothes in the closet of their room in the Luxor hotel when she chuckled to herself.

    “What are you giggling about over there?” Dominick inquired.

    “I just think it’s funny that we’ve been planning this trip for six months and it just so happens that the soccer team is having their tournament here this same weekend. Small world, huh?” Claire explained. The soccer team she was referring to was a group of guys they drank with on a regular basis. Claire knew them better than Dominick, who she had just recently introduced to the group.

    Dominick chuckled a little before replying. “No kidding. That’ll just make the trip even more fun!”

    He couldn’t help but stare momentarily as Claire unpacked. He thought about how odd it was that just ten months ago they weren’t even on speaking terms and now they were sharing a trip to Vegas together. It wasn’t that they had any personal conflicts, but when two sisters fight, it’s no surprise that their kids lose touch as well. He was glad that the family drama had been laid to rest and they were now not only cousins, but practically best friends.

    They spent the first two nights attending various night clubs with a few of the soccer players’ girlfriends. The guys were more interested in gambling, so they didn’t mind the separation. Claire and the other girls’ cleavage came in handy when it came to the long lines and cover charges, and Dominick was lucky enough to share the benefits. The nights flew by and the days were mostly spent sleeping off the hangovers.

    On the third day of their trip, Claire and Dominick agreed to go to the final match of the soccer tournament to cheer on their friends. Claire was more of a sports fan than Dominick, so he waited for her to cheer or boo before following suit. The team ended up coming in second place, which was good enough to merit another night out drinking. Although in all honesty, that probably would have been the plan regardless. Everyone shipped back to their hotel rooms and changed into more formal clothes. Claire and Dominick caught a cab to the soccer team’s hotel to get a head start on drinking with everyone as the men finished showering and changing.

    The last of them came out of the bathroom with a small towel wrapped around his waist. It was just big enough to cover the essential parts, but there was a large V-shaped gap that started below the man’s hand where the corners of the towel were joined. His lean thigh was completely exposed from the waist down, which caught Dominick’s eye. Derek’s light Latino skin tone could have been mistaken for a flawless tan. His dark hair, typically spiked up, was now dripping water down his back and chest. But his most notable feature, aside from his great physique, was his eyes. They were a vibrant grayish-hazel color that Dominick had never seen before.

    However, the fact that Derek was the biggest, most arrogant douche-bag on the team was a turn-off. Plus, Claire (along with most of the other girls in their social circle) had a short-lived fling with him several months ago. The combination made Derek off limits for Dominick. Oh, and the whole heterosexual aspect definitely didn’t help.

    The team piled into a line of cabs. Dominick rolled his eyes as he realized that Derek was climbing into the third seat of their cab. Maybe it was a slight hint of jealousy, or maybe he was just overprotective, but something about seeing Claire and Derek flirt annoyed the hell out of him.

    “Remind me… What’s your name?” Derek asked, snapping Dominick out of his analysis of the situation.

    “Dominick. And you are?”

    “Derek. Sorry, I know we’ve bumped into each other at a few parties, but I’m horrible with names,” he said, stretching his arm across Claire to shake hands. The puzzled look on Claire’s face as they introduced themselves could have indicated that Dominick knew full well who Derek was. There had been many stories about him during their gossip sessions. He was a little embarrassed that the familiarity was a one-way road, though.

    As the night (and alcohol consumption) progressed, the flirtation between Derek and Claire increased. They kept it in the cab for the most part because Derek had acquired a girlfriend a couple months before the trip and he knew one of his teammates’ girlfriends would rat him out in a heartbeat.

    Derek, being infamous for his cockiness, was asking Claire to rate his attractiveness on a scale of one to ten. She quickly answered with a ten, which visibly pleased Derek. Then Derek turned to Dominick with the same question.

    “Um… What??” Dominick replied, slightly dumbfounded. Since when did straight men care about their attractiveness level from a gay man’s perspective?

    “On a scale of one to ten… How would you rate me on looks alone?” Derek repeated.

    “Probably a seven,” Dominick lied. He agreed with Claire’s evaluation, but would rather walk out in front of a Greyhound Bus than boost Derek’s ego. Derek was shocked at the average rating. Lacking a legitimate explanation, Dominick simply shrugged and said “One girl’s treasure is another man’s trash, I suppose,” following the jab with a sarcastic smile.

    “Ouch!” Derek replied, then quickly changed his focus back to Claire.

    Things took an interesting twist later in the evening, though. Returning to another cab after their final bar trip of the night, Derek entered the cab and scooted to the middle seat. Confusion struck Claire and Dominick equally as they sat on either side of him. It wasn’t long until Derek drunkenly slipped a heavy arm around Dominick’s shoulders.

    “I think that ‘seven’ was a lie,” he whispered slowly into Dominick’s ear, his face being much closer than necessary. Dominick could feel the heat from Derek’s breath on his ear, which was a major turn-on. When Derek started caressing the ear he wasn’t whispering into, Dominick had to adjust himself through his pants.

    “And I think you’re drunk,” Dominick replied, trying to keep his voice level. He could practically feel the rage radiating off of Claire at this point. The whole situation was a little more awkward than Dominick was willing to deal with. The truth was that he wanted Derek badly, though.

    The rest of the night, Derek’s attention never left Dominick. He made comments about having slept with Dominick’s entire circle of friends, claiming that he needed to “close the circle.” He also made a few perverse jokes about making his way up Claire and Dominick’s family tree. As the night progressed, Dominick and Claire were both escalating. Dominick was becoming more and more aroused at the situation, and Claire was becoming more and more pissed off and confused.

    Dominick finally put his foot down when Derek asked them to stay the night in his hotel suite. He knew whoever ended up getting their way with Derek that night, there would be tension between the cousins. Plus, it wasn’t appropriate with Derek having a girlfriend back home. Dominick and Claire wished Derek a good night and caught a cab back to their room on the opposite side of the Strip.

    By the time they pulled up to the Luxor, they were watching the sun rise. Dominick had a feeling that he’d be waking up to a serious conversation with Claire. They were both too tired to address anything before a few hours of sleep, though.

    * * * * CHAPTER TWO * * * *


    Luckily there was no “serious talk” between the cousins the next day. Claire had made subtle jabs about the fact that Derek was a player and a flirt. She said he just liked the attention and that he was trying to make her jealous by not paying attention to her. Dominick had to remind himself to keep his head on straight. He had already established that Derek was completely off limits sexually and romantically.

    They were both curious and confused about the events of the previous night. Claire thought back to the time she had spent around Derek before they started sleeping together. There had been other gay men in the group before. None of the soccer players were homophobes, which surprised her. But nobody had ever shown interest in the previous gay men, either.

    She gazed across the table at her cousin, noting her near-starvation as the smell of cooking bacon filled the buffet dining area. She sometimes had to remind herself that he was bisexual. Maybe that’s why Derek’s flirting… No, not flirting. Derek’s attention toward Dominick? Whatever she was going to call it, it was surely nothing. But it did shake her slightly.

    Dominick had feminine personality characteristics at times, especially when he drank. But he wasn’t your standard twink. He was built more like a football player than a dancer. He stood several inches taller than her at about 5’10”. His hair was somewhere between light brown and dark blonde, depending on the lighting, and his bangs came down just above his blue eyes. She wondered if he was modeling his current hair style off of Chase Crawford.

    Suddenly, she was really curious what it looked like when he was pursuing someone. He was, as far as she knew, a romantic atheist. He had a tendency to flirt with everyone in the room while drunk, but that was just his playful nature. She couldn’t remember him confessing an attraction to anyone and she didn’t know any of his previous sexual partners.

    “Hangover?” Dominick interrupted.

    “Actually, no! I was pacing myself better last night!” She replied, chuckling.

    “This buffet is expensive as hell, but you can’t ask for better morning-after food!” Dominick finally said. He didn’t usually have to force a conversation between the two of them. He could tell there was something on her mind, though. And it wasn’t hard to guess what she was thinking about.

    After breakfast, they packed their clothing and souvenirs and went downstairs to check out. Sobriety didn’t make the diagonal direction of the elevator much more tolerable. They always laughed at each other, as one or both of them inevitably almost tipped over every time it started moving.

    “I had a lot of fun this weekend, Dom. Thanks for taking care of the hotel!” Claire surprised Dominick with a strong hug before they got in the car to return home.

    * * * * CHAPTER THREE * * * *


    Life resumed pretty normally after they returned home. Dominick was happy to have the rest of his girlfriends back. It wasn’t that he disliked men, but it was much easier for him to get along with females. Perhaps it had to do with the fact that his father had a part-time role in his upbringing and his mother and aunts picked up the slack. Or maybe it was gay thing. Either way, he had a testosterone overload in Vegas and it was time for a night out with the girls.

    Claire pulled up to Dominick’s driveway and honked her horn. She was almost always the designated driver because she didn’t like drinking very often. Dominick quickly hopped out the front door and locked it behind him. He was in his usual jeans and polo combination. His wardrobe rarely varied. He didn’t wear anything extravagant, not even name brand jeans.

    As Dominick approached the car he could see the outline of Lindsey in the front passenger seat, so he slid into the seat behind her.

    “Dominick!!” she nearly shouted as she rotated in her seat to hug him. It had only been about a week since she had seen Dominick and Claire, but that’s a long time when your entire group of friends leaves for Vegas without you. Sometimes fun had to take a backseat when you’re single with a kid, though.

    They arrived at one of the only gay bars in town and everyone but Claire had a spring to their step, excited to return to their weekend routine. Claire sluggishly exited the vehicle and forced a smile at her friends. Dominick wondered if she was still bothered by their last night in Vegas.

    “What’s up your ass?” Lindsey questioned. She had such a way with words.

    “Haha! Nothing, I just got tired all the sudden!” Claire replied.

    “Well snap out of it, bitch! We have…” she paused to check the clock on her phone, “four hours of dancing to enjoy tonight!”

    PJ’s was marketed as a gay bar, but in reality, there were probably just as many straight people there at any given time because it was one of the only bars in the area with a dance floor. Dominick wasn’t a fan of the gay scene, so it was a perfect balance for him. The girls loved it because the female-to-creeper ratio was much better here than the straight bars in town.

    After the first round of drinks, Claire asked Lindsey to hold her glass so she could wait in line for the bathroom. When they offered to wait with her, she declined politely and stepped away from the dance floor. The corner of Dominick’s mouth pulled down into a slight frown as she disappeared. There was clearly tension between them.

    “Ready, set, spill!” Lindsey shouted over the music.

    “What?” Dominick replied, scrunching his forehead.

    “What happened in Vegas? Why are you guys so awkward now??” she asked.

    “Oh… That. It’s a long story.” Dominick tried to postpone the conversation. He knew there was no way to avoid having it altogether.

    “Well that’s convenient because the line to the bathroom is also long. So we definitely have time.” Lindsey smiled slyly as she nudged his shoulder. She knew Claire was like a brick wall. She didn’t reveal anything she didn’t want to unless you were willing to rent a wrecking ball. Dominick, on the other hand, was pretty easy to persuade, especially with liquor as her sidekick.

    Lindsey dragged Dominick off the dance floor to one of the tables in the corner. Prior to tonight, Dominick hadn’t even noticed there tables in the bar. She put her drink down and sipped on Claire’s, made a disgusted face, and returned to her drink. Dominick got straight to the point, explaining what had happened between him and Derek in Vegas. There were a few times throughout the story that Lindsey’s eyebrows jumped up in surprise.

    “Wow, he’s totally into you, dude!” she finally concluded.

    “Okay, you’re not helping here, Lindsey. I’ve been thinking about it more than I should as it is. There’s no need to put false ideas in my head. You, Claire, and pretty much every other female in the southern hemisphere have slept with him. He’s clearly not gay.” Dominick argued.

    “Maybe not gay, but what straight guy caresses another guy’s ear? And why would he even care if you found him attractive unless he was interested??” she persuaded. She said exactly what he had been thinking, but he didn’t want to admit that.

    “Well, I think I did a decent job of not reciprocating. Don’t get me wrong, I was pretty horned up by the whole thing. You know how I like straight guys. But I know Claire has more invested in him than she’ll ever admit. And it just wouldn’t be right.”

    It was funny to him that Lindsey was technically Claire’s best friend, but he was able to confide in her much more than he could in Claire. It wasn’t that Claire wasn’t trustworthy. She just tended to come off a little judgmental at times. And there was no need to get her even more upset about the situation by confessing that it had ignited Dominick’s interest in Derek.

    Claire returned from the bathroom and they finished their night on the dance floor. On the way home Lindsey’s phone vibrated.

    “Ooh! After party at Derek’s house!” Lindsey exclaimed. Dominick cringed as the name left her mouth. What the hell was she thinking??

    He was about to pretend he was too tired to party when Claire surprised him with a “Sounds good!” and made a sudden left turn at the intersection. Dominick’s stomach churned a little. This couldn’t end well.

    They arrived at Derek’s parents’ house and barreled out of the car. Claire, being the only sober one, made it to the door first while Lindsey and Dominick stumbled in behind her. They stepped over a group of soccer players in front of the Xbox 360 and made their way to the back family room. Claire and Dominick were both surprised to see Taryn sitting on Derek’s lap as they entered the room. Had they forgotten she existed? Maybe.

    Taryn’s eyes suddenly snapped to them and she stood up forcefully. She managed a nasty glare in each of their directions as she pulled Derek out of the room without a word. Apparently what happens in Vegas does not, in fact, stay in Vegas. She had always come off as a bitch, but now she was in bitch overdrive and there was only one explanation.

    Taryn’s “best friend”, using the title loosely as they both stabbed each other in the back often, strode across the room. Luckily, she was very easy to get along with most of the time. She had a tendency to bring drama to the group, but she usually had good intentions.

    “Soooooo… How was Vegas?” Jessica inquired with a cheesy grin.

    “I’m sure you’ve already heard the details.” Claire rolled her eyes.

    “Ehh. I heard you were all over Derek. Taryn didn’t even know you were going to be there; otherwise she would have gone, too. She’s forbidden him from speaking to any of you for the duration of their relationship.” Jessica explained. The three friends jumped at once to respond, but Lindsey won that battle.

    “Wooooo!” she said in a mocking tone, shaking her hands in the air, “Forbidden, huh? That’s pretty intense! Let’s be honest here, though. Relationship? Derek? This won’t last long.”

    “Besides, I was NOT all over him.” Claire added.

    “And I’m going out on a limb here, but I probably won’t lose sleep if I don’t hear from either of them.” Dominick shrugged, half-laughing. He was actually curious if Derek would stop talking to them, though.

    “It’s not like you did anything, Dom. Taryn just doesn’t like you because you’re gay. Plus, the fact that you’re friends with Claire and Lindsey doesn’t help.” Jessica blurted. He was surprised to hear that his role in the story had been omitted. He thought that would have been a more scandalous topic.

    “Are you kidding me? What is this, 1954? I haven’t heard anything that homophobic since third grade. She can go to hell.” Dominick was clearly aggravated at the comment. It was these types of events that inspired him to avoid conversations about his sexual preferences with his previous social circles.

    At that moment, Taryn and Derek reentered the room. Derek’s arm was around Taryn’s shoulder and he didn’t even let his eyes drift to the group as he walked by them. Apparently he would, in fact, be willing to completely ignore their existence per Taryn’s demands. Dominick shook his head in disgust.

    It appeared that Dominick and Derek’s interaction in Vegas would be their first and their last.

    Re: "Off Limits"

    * * * * CHAPTER FOUR * * * *


    For the first few weeks after the incident at Derek’s parents’ house, the group was pretty riled up. There were several four letter words being attached to Derek and Taryn’s names. After that, though, everything returned to normal. They would occasionally bump into Derek and Taryn at parties, and Derek would continue to pretend they weren’t even there. But for the most part, Derek wasn’t involved in the social aspect of the soccer team anymore.

    Dominick’s career hit quite a growth spurt. He was promoted twice and given a decent raise. This meant the group could do more of the things they loved (i.e. drink and travel). Dominick picked up the tab most of the time since Claire had been laid off and Lindsey had a child to support.

    One of the soccer player’s girlfriends, Alyssa, joined the group. She was a bit of an airhead at times, but fun to be around regardless. She had been dating Brandon since a few weeks before the Vegas trip and their romance was progressing rapidly. Likewise, her friendship with the group also progressed pretty quickly, considering how long it had been since someone new had joined them.

    After about four months, Dominick got a surprising text message.

    Claire: Are you on Facebook right now??
    Dominick: Nope. I’m at work. Why? What’s up?
    Claire: Derek just changed his relationship status to “Single”.
    Dominick: Wow. He was pretty whipped. She must have dumped him.
    Claire: Apparently she got back together with one of her ex’s and kicked him out of the apartment.
    Dominick: Couldn’t have happened to a better person.
    Claire: I know, right? I wonder how long it will take for him to text me now that he’s single. Lol.


    Dominick was curious, too. As angry as he was with Derek for ignoring them, he wondered how his new-found single lifestyle would impact their circle of friends. Claire and Lindsey had already argued over him briefly in the past. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to assume history would repeat itself.

    That weekend, Claire and Meghan had a “girls only” party with some work friends. Dominick and Lindsey decided to go to happy hour without them, as it was their Saturday night tradition with the soccer team. Neither of them was surprised to see Derek at the table when they arrived.

    He looked different. He wasn’t as baby-faced as Dominick had remembered. He had a patch of facial hair on his chin now and his face was more angular since their last encounter. He looked more like a man and less like a boy. But those eyes were still the same.

    Derek looked up to catch Dominick’s stare. Dominick quickly shifted his gaze to Lindsey, who had apparently been talking since they walked in the door. He struggled to put the pieces together so he could form a legitimate response by the time she stopped talking.

    Fortunately, she got distracted by the “hello’s” as they pulled a couple chairs out from the table.

    “Hi, Dominick!” Derek shouted across the table cheerfully. It was clear that he had a few drinks already at that point. When Dominick didn’t respond, he continued to repeat the greeting until he finally got Dominick’s attention.

    “What the hell? Are you making up for lost time now? Piss off!” Dominick sneered back. He believed in second chances for genuine friends. But if someone made a negative first impression and then screwed him over, what was the point?

    “Yep, I am. Hi, Dominick!” he shouted again, standing from the table. Again, he continued to repeat himself, but this time he was walking around the table to where Dominick was sitting. He bent down over the back of Dominick’s chair and hugged him around his shoulders.

    “Hi, Derek.” Dominick finally replied, lacking enthusiasm. Derek smiled at him and set a drink down in front of him, then turned and greeted Lindsey with a hug. The annoyance aside, Dominick had to admit two things: Derek’s cologne smelled incredibly good and he was a very good hugger. Both were pluses, he thought briefly. He interrupted the thought, shaking his head. He had to stay away from that mind frame.

    Throughout the night, the team downed several drinks and continued socializing until the restaurant was closing. As Dominick and Lindsey stood, Derek asked who would be coming back to his parents’ house to continue the party. Lindsey eyed Dominick and volunteered them without waiting for Dominick’s approving nod.

    Dominick inhaled deeply as they turned into Derek’s parents’ driveway. Somewhere deep down, he was actually excited to be spending time with Derek again. He was still annoyed at the situation, and nervous about Claire’s opinion on the matter. He decided to text her.

    Dominick: How’s the party going? Guess who’s suddenly deciding to be social over here?
    Claire: So far so good. Who? Derek?
    Dominick: Good guess! I’m too annoyed to be friendly, though. If he thinks he can switch from douchebag to nice guy overnight, that’s fine. But that doesn’t mean I have to do the same.
    Claire: I really don’t think it’s worth the headache. Just let it go and have fun.
    Dominick: Guess so. I’ll talk to you more tomorrow. Text me when you make it home safely! Love you!
    Claire: You do the same! Love you, too!


    When Dominick and Lindsey came into the back family room, Dominick eyed the “Drunk Jenga” game sitting in the middle of table. That was the moment he knew this evening would be eventful. It turned out that only one other soccer player came to the house. The rest of them were holding a grudge for Derek’s behavior apparently. Steve wasn’t the type to get involved in the drama, though.

    Derek brought several beers from the garage and passed them around the table.

    “Oh, we grabbed some Smirnoff on the way. Thanks, though.” Lindsey said, pushing their beer cans back to him.

    “Alright. Dominick first.” Derek said, nodding his head toward the Jenga tower. Dominick took a sip of his drink and reached out for the tower. He pulled a block that stated “Kiss the person to your left.” He and Lindsey giggled, then leaned in for a short kiss.

    It was Lindsey’s turn next. Her block instructed her to send a dirty text to someone at the table. She sent a text to Dominick that read “Follow my lead tonight. We’ll have some fun. ” Dominick scrunched his forehead after reading it. Curiosity was killing him, and the alcohol had pretty much killed his inhibitions at this point. That could be a deadly combination.

    Derek pulled the next tile. It told him to remove two articles of clothing. He quickly kicked off his shoes. Lindsey interjected before he could sit back down.

    “Two shoes do NOT count as two articles of clothing!” she demanded.

    “Fine!” Derek said, smirking as he removed his shirt. Dominick and Lindsey both bit their bottom lip at the sight.

    Steve then drew a tile and decided not to follow its instructions. He was penalized with a shot of vodka, which he downed without any hesitation. It was Dominick’s turn again. His tile instructed him to ask the person across from him for a spanking. He approached Derek, turned around and bent over slightly, asking to be spanked. Derek didn’t hesitate to slap Dominick’s ass through his jeans. Even with the alcohol, Dominick felt the sting from the spank. He thanked Derek and returned to his place at the table.

    “Ooh!” Lindsey exclaimed. She was getting more excited. “My turn!” She pulled another tile, almost knocking the tower over with her clumsiness. The tile gave her the option to switch seats with anyone at the table. She chose to switch seats with Dominick.

    Derek pulled another tile and laughed. It was another “Remove two articles of clothing” tile. He removed his belt and jeans. Now he was standing only in his boxers, wearing a crooked baseball cap. Steve and Lindsey both passed on their turns, each taking another shot. Dominick blushed at his next tile.

    “I’m not taking another shot, so if you decline this, the shot is for you.” He said, passing the tile Derek.

    “Give a 30-second lap dance to the person on your left.” Derek read aloud, laughing. He hesitated for a moment then said, “I’m not doing any more shots.”
    Derek stood up and moved from the tall chairs to the couch. Dominick followed, adjusting himself when nobody was looking so they wouldn’t notice he was starting to get hard just at the thought. Lindsey was practically jumping up and down. She had the remote to the TV in her hand and was locating a music channel. A devilish smile spread from ear to ear when “Shots” by LMFAO came through the speakers.

    Dominick’s heart started racing as he cleared the distance between himself and Derek. He placed his hands on Derek’s thighs and dipped down to the floor between his legs. He continued gyrating and rolling his body, pressing Derek’s legs apart as he traveled upward slowly. He finally turned around and mounted Derek’s lap, facing away from him. He was so glad to be wearing jeans because his erection would have been much more obvious in a pair of sweats or shorts. Speaking of which, he was starting to feel Derek rise to the occasion below him. When he peaked over his shoulder, he noticed Derek’s jaw was clenched, and his grip on Dominick’s right hip and left shoulder were tightening. His whole body was trembling and he was starting to breathe heavy.

    “Shit! I have to go pick up my brother from a party. He’s drunk again.” Steve interrupted awkwardly. Dominick quickly hopped off Derek’s lap and sat on the couch across from him.

    “Are you okay to drive, man?” Derek asked.

    “Yeah, I only had two shots tonight. I’m fine.” He reassured his friend, pulling his keys out of his pocket and leaving. Lindsey swayed her back so she could see when the front door closed behind him.

    “Soooo…” Lindsey said, moving to where she could stand as the point of a triangle between Dominick and Derek. “Dominick and I have had this long-running rivalry in the oral department.” She blurted out. Derek cleared his throat, but didn’t say anything. “For some reason, he thinks he can out-perform me. So what do you say to being our test dummy?”

    Derek sat for a while without responding. Dominick could still see his body shaking from across the couch. “You’re going to have to wait about a half hour between tests, if that’s cool.” He finally responded. This time, the devilish grin spread across both Lindsey and Dominick’s faces.

    “We were actually thinking of something a little more simultaneous, if you catch my drift.” Lindsey explained.

    “Nice. Just let me finish this beer first.” He replied more easily. It seemed like he was comfortable with the idea now.

    A few minutes later, he had finished the beer and stood. He started walking back toward the hallway when Steve walked back in through front the door.

    “He ended up getting a ride from our…… sister.” Steve explained. There was a pause when he noticed Derek was nearly naked and walking toward his bedroom with the other two. The four of them stopped and eyed each other nervously for what seemed like ten minutes.

    “I was just going to bed, Steve. Lindsey and Dom are going to crash on the couches if you want to take the futon in the family room.” Derek lied, breaking the silence.

    “Uhhh… Sure. Yeah, that sounds good.” Steve nodded. He was still assessing the situation and obviously suspicious of the other three.

    “I’m really tired. I’m going to bed.” Derek said assertively to Lindsey and Dominick.

    “But…” Lindsey started.

    “I’m really tired.” Derek repeated and walked back to his room, closing the door behind him.

    “Just leave it.” Dominick said to Lindsey.

    “What the hell just happened??” Lindsey insisted.

    “Let’s just go. Can you drive?” Dominick asked.

    “Yeah. I only had one shot and a few sips of Smirnoff Ice. You can crash at my place tonight.” Lindsey assured him. With that, Lindsey jingled her keys and walked out the front door. Dominick sighed heavily and followed her to the car.

    ^ Agreed.

    Derek seems like a bit of a douche at the moment. I'm looking forward to seeing what he's really like - is he actually a douche, or was he just under his girlfriend's thumb?

    I actually thought that Dominick was kind of being a dick...

    All flighty and "hot" then "cold"...

    I mean, if a THIRD PARTY told me that an acquaintance of mine couldn't talk to me because his girlfriend forbade it, I would make it a POINT to go and TALK TO HIM!!!

    But, I guess different people respond differently -- it'll be interesting to see what happens next!!!

    Re: "Off Limits"

    * * * * CHAPTER FIVE * * * *


    Dominick woke on Sunday to a nasty combination of dehydration and guilt. He didn’t like making anyone feel uncomfortable for any reason, but when it came to his sexuality, he was even more sensitive to the subject. It’s not that he was ashamed of it, but he didn’t want to be one of those cliché gay men that made straight men feel the need to be cautious constantly. Then again, it was Lindsey that was forcing the situation. Ugh. He’d return to these thoughts after a full bottle of water and some breakfast.

    When he checked the clock on his phone, he noticed the battery icon was flashing red and there was an unread text. Part of him wanted the text to be from Derek, but they hadn’t even exchanged numbers. It was actually a text from Claire confirming that she made it home safely last night.

    Lindsey was in the kitchen cooking hash browns and bacon. She didn’t typically wake up so early on weekends, especially after a late night out. However, Dominick had a tendency to snore when he was drunk and she was a light sleeper ever since the baby was born.

    “Good morning, sunshine!” Lindsey joked as Dominick rounded the corner. To be honest, he looked like hell. “I have to leave to pick up the baby from her father in about an hour. Do you want me to drop you off on the way or do you want to hang out here until I get back?”

    “I should probably get home, actually. I need a warm shower and some Excedrin.” He grumbled. Lindsey just chuckled in lieu of responding.

    As soon as Lindsey dropped Dominick off, he practically sprinted for the shower. After a brief towel dry, he slipped on some basketball shorts and fired up the computer. He went to Derek’s Facebook profile. It had been a while since his last visit to this page, since he was so fired up about the whole ordeal. With another sigh, he clicked the “Send Message” button at the top of Derek’s profile and began composing an apology.

    “Hi Derek. I just wanted to apologize for crossing the line last night. I hope we didn’t make you too uncomfortable. See you around.”

    Before letting himself think about it any longer, he hit the “Send” button and closed the window. He was about to text Claire when his phone buzzed in his pocket.

    “Facebook Mobile. Derek sent you a message: ‘You didn’t make me uncomfortable. What are you doing tonight?”

    Dominick’s heart sped up as he read the message. He immediately rushed back to the computer to respond.

    Dominick: I’ll probably hit the gym and head over to Claire’s for a hot tub and movie night. You?
    Derek: Not sure yet. I’ll probably just stay in. I feel like crap today.
    Dominick: Yeah, I did when I woke up, too. Hope you feel better!

    There was no response after that. Dominick scrunched his face after a few minutes. Should he have made it sound like he didn’t have anything planned? Was Derek thinking about making plans with him? Maybe he should have given him his phone number…

    “Snap out of it!” Dominick commanded himself out loud. Here he was, stomach fluttering over this guy that, up until last night, wasn’t even willing to acknowledge he existed. What the hell was he thinking? First of all, the guy was straight. Secondly, he had a fling with Dominick’s cousin and best friend. Thirdly, he was an arrogant dickhead. There were so many things that took Derek out of the running. But that didn’t alter the fact that Dominick wanted him.

    Claire ended up bailing on the hot tub plans that night. She and Alyssa got into a fight in the morning and she wasn’t in the mood for company. Dominick knew this also meant that he’d be getting a detailed account of the argument from Alyssa within the hour. Sure enough, she texted him shortly after explaining that she was supposed to be the designated driver that night and ended up drinking. He instantly knew just how angry Claire was.

    Claire didn’t like to drink often, but when she was in the mood, she was in the mood. Dominick knew as soon as she saw Alyssa drinking at the party, Claire probably put her glass down right away and stayed just long enough to sober up and go home. He’d be surprised if Claire even told Alyssa she was leaving, and more shocked if she drove Alyssa home. It wasn’t the first time this happened, and Claire wasn’t the type to deal out chances repeatedly.

    Dominick advised Alyssa to sit on it for three days, apologize via text or e-mail, and then pretend like nothing ever happened. This was Claire’s remedy to tough situations. She wasn’t the type to sit down and talk things out. She wouldn’t be the first to break a period of silence between friends, and she didn’t like hearing about something that angered her after it was swept under the rug.

    Fortunately, Dominick’s night would not be spent alone. He had his own apartment at one point, but with the economy going haywire, his mother’s hours had been dropped from full time to part time. She needed help with rent and Dominick was tired of having an empty apartment to himself, so he moved back home. Dominick’s little brother wasn’t handling his absence very well, either. It seemed to be the right decision for the whole family.

    That night, Dominick’s mother picked up Chinese food for dinner and stopped by the dollar movie rental box to grab some romantic comedy that just came out on DVD. As they were watching the movie and dining in the living room, Dominick glanced over at his laptop. It was resting on the arm of the couch with Facebook open. It could be argued that he was a social media addict.

    He nearly flew to the keyboard when Derek’s chat message popped up.

    Derek: No hot tub, huh?
    Dominick: Nah. Just staying in and renting a movie.
    Derek: Fun. Who ya with?
    Dominick: My mom and brother. Fun party. Haha.
    Derek: Sounds like it. I’m pretty bored.

    The two continued small-talking throughout the duration of the movie Dominick’s mother was now watching alone. She glanced over a few times, curious who he was so excited to be talking to. It had been a long time since she saw that excitement in him. Although she should probably be happy that he was happy, nervousness came instead.

    Before they knew it, three hours had passed. Dominick’s family had gone to bed already and the only noise in the house was his tapping at the keyboard. Dominick hated to do it, but he had to end the conversation so he could get to bed. It was a work night after all.

    Dominick: Well it was nice talking to you, but I should hit the hay. I have work in the morning.
    Derek: What do you do?
    Dominick: I’m a marketing coordinator. I track leads and collect information for the sales team to use to acquire new clients.
    Derek: Interesting. Well I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Goodnight!

    Dominick stared at the last response for a good ten seconds before saying “Goodnight” back to Derek. He couldn’t believe what was happening. Was Derek actually enjoying their conversation, too? Dominick had assumed it was a last resort, a thoughtless act of desperation to remedy Derek’s boredom. He closed his eyes and shook his head again, thinking he was acting like a fourth grader. Derek was just bored. He assured himself that was the only cause for the conversation. Dominick wasn't trying to be negative, but he knew from the stories that Derek was not the guy to let his guard down around.

    * * * * CHAPTER SIX * * * *


    “What the hell?!” Dominick’s mother shouted at the computer.

    “Uh... Do I want to know?” Dominick asked while mentally taking inventory of a few things she could be upset about.

    “Your phone plan comes with five THOUSAND text messages! How did you manage to jump from fifteen hundred to eight thousand in one month?!” She complained.

    “Okay, I’m not really sure where the anger is stemming from here. I’ve always paid my part of the phone bill, so there’s no reason to raise your voice. I’ll take care of it!” Dominick reasoned. It had been about a month since he and Derek began chatting on Facebook and they had since exchanged phone numbers. There were very few moments in the day when Dominick and Derek weren’t texting or on the phone with each other. And that was only because they were together in person during those few moments.

    “Who could you possibly be texting that much?” she prodded.

    “Does it matter? I said I’d take care of it! Jesus!” At this point Dominick was more than irritated. The only reason they shared a phone bill in the first place was so his mother could benefit from his corporate discount. Who did she think she was to be interrogating him about his own phone bill?

    “Sorry, Dom. I guess that just caught me off guard when I saw the dollar amount.” She finally laughed after a short period of silent tension.

    “I’m sorry, too. I didn’t mean to raise my voice at you, Mom.” Dominick apologized. “But on that note, I have lunch plans with Alyssa. I’ll see ya later!”



    Before the waiter could even ask for drink orders, Alyssa began her “inconspicuous” investigation. “So… Is he gay now?” she asked innocently.

    “What? Who??” Dominick responded in shock. He knew exactly who she was referring to, but needed a second to recover from the jolting bluntness of her interrogation.

    “Derek! Duh!” She rolled her eyes. “You hardly ever hang out with the group anymore! You’re always with him! And even when you are with us, you’re texting him!” she began to explain.

    “Yeah, my mom was a little shocked about my text messages on this month’s bill.” Dominick laughed. He was juggling the idea in his head. To be honest, he was equally confused. But if there was any chance that Derek was not 100% straight, Dominick knew it wasn’t his place to make the announcement.

    “See? So spill!” Alyssa insisted. Her eyebrows were raised so high they almost met her dark brown hair, which was pulled into a quick ponytail.

    “Of course Derek isn’t gay. He just broke up with his girlfriend!” Dominick attempted to sound convinced.

    “Hmm. I guess so. It’s just so weird! You guys are like best friends all the sudden. And Phil said he walked into Derek’s room one night at 3:00am and you guys were in bed together!”

    “Okay, first of all, we weren’t ‘in bed together’. We were just in the same bed asleep. There’s a difference.” Dominick defended.

    “Okay, but guy friends don’t typically share a bed when there are five couches in the house. Plus, he slept in only his boxers!” Alyssa continued to argue.

    “Good Lord! Did Phil run a column in the Enquirer or something?? This is ridiculous!” Dominick said as his phone buzzed. There was a pause in the conversation as he read Derek’s text and replied.

    “Derek, right? Everyone can tell when you guys are texting because you get this cheesy excited look on your face.”

    Dominick fought another cheesy smile and started to blush. The events of the last month excited him and confused him. It was in his nature to tell his friends everything and seek their feedback, but he didn’t want to betray Derek’s trust. Plus, it sounded like rumors were already starting. He had a feeling if the attention got out of hand, their friendship would suffer.

    “Okay, so we’re close friends. It doesn’t mean he’s gay. Believe it or not, a gay man and a straight man CAN be friends. I mean, even straight women and men can be friends! It’s no different.” Dominick realized he was starting to ramble.

    “Okay fine. I’ll drop it!” Alyssa finally interrupted.

    The rest of the meal was fairly shallow chit-chat and gossip back and forth. Every time Dominick’s phone buzzed, Alyssa made the same scandalous face. Dominick knew this was the beginning of an inner-circle uproar. He let the idea rest for a while when his text conversation peaked his interest.

    Derek: What time do you want me to pick you up tonight?
    Dominick: For what??
    Derek: Dinner!
    Dominick: Oh I didn’t realize we had dinner plans!
    Derek: Oh yeah. Wanna do dinner tonight? Great! I’ll pick you up at 7:00!
    Dominick: Haha. You’re a dork. I DO have my own car, ya know.
    Derek: Yeah, but I know you don’t like driving. I’ll see you then!
    Dominick: Wait, where are we going??
    Derek: It’s a surprise!

    “So what are you doing tonight?” Alyssa asked. He had almost forgotten she was there. She was clearly just making small talk, but the timing was so coincidental with his conversation with Derek that it startled him.

    “Uh… Just hanging out with Derek.” Dominick admitted. Why did it feel like this was something that should be hidden? Was he guilty?

    “Oh cool. What do you guys have planned?”

    “We’re gonna grab dinner and probably hang out at his parents’ place.”

    “Oooh a dinner date! Cute!!” Alyssa teased. It didn’t help the thoughts that were already going through Dominick’s mind. At face value, this did feel kind of date-ish. Then again, Claire and Dominick always rode together when they went for dinner. The only difference now was that he had feelings for Derek that he didn’t have for his other best friends.

    As Alyssa and Dominick walked out of the restaurant, Dominick wondered how long it would take for Lindsey or Claire to confront him about the results of Alyssa’s recon mission. Regardless, he had a feeling tonight was going to be a great night and he wouldn’t let any outside drama get in the way of that.

    * * * * CHAPTER SEVEN * * * *

    “It smells like seafood in here!” Dominick cringed as Derek held the door open to the Mexican restaurant.

    “Oh… Uh… You don’t like seafood? We can go somewhere else if you want.” Derek fumbled. Dominick planted his face in his palm out of embarrassment.

    “Sorry, I was just playing. I’m usually not a seafood person, but I’ve never been here. Let’s stay!” He tried to recover. Derek chuckled and followed Dominick to the hostess.

    “Just two tonight?” the hostess asked.

    “Yep!” Derek answered.

    The petite blonde escorted them to a table in the back of the nearly-empty restaurant. After requesting their drinks, Derek ordered a plate of oysters.

    “Have you ever tried oysters?” Derek asked Dominick.

    “Not so much.” Dominick answered. The idea was becoming more and more repulsive as he pictured the dish. He was trying to hide his disgust from Derek, though.

    “They’re good! Just try one!!” Derek laughed, obviously sensing Dominick’s disgust. Dominick just nodded and tried to filter out the seafood smell. The whole experience was nauseating, but he was happy to be there with Derek.

    “So what’s good here?” Dominick asked, answering “Nothing” in his head sarcastically.

    “Everything!” Derek answered, as if he heard Dominick’s mental response.

    “Well what would be your non-fish suggestion?” Dominick clarified.

    Before Derek could answer, the waitress placed a plate covered with ice and oysters on the table. She placed a bottle of Tabasco sauce and small bowl of lime wedges next to it.

    “Do you know what you’d like for dinner tonight?” she asked.

    “We’ll get two of the wrapped shrimp plates, please.” Derek answered. Dominick was thankful not to have to pick something from the menu, and shrimp happened to be the only seafood that he could tolerate aside from sushi rolls.

    “Alright! Enjoy the oysters!” the waitress smiled and disappeared back into the kitchen.

    Derek’s hands moved to the Tabasco sauce and the salt shaker on the table. After preparing a couple oysters with both condiments, he handed one to Dominick.

    “Here you go! You can add lime juice if you want, but I usually don’t.” Derek looked excited.

    “Okay…” Dominick forced a smile before putting the shell to his lips. “Wait! Do you chew it??” he asked in panic.

    “Nope! Just swallow. Should be pretty easy for you!” Derek cocked an eyebrow and smiled devilishly. Dominick squinted a “piss off” look at him quickly and put the shell back to his lips. Derek followed along with his oyster, staring at Dominick the whole time.

    Dominick took the oyster like a shot of alcohol, but had to swallow a couple extra times to get the taste of Tabasco and salt out of his mouth. Derek started laughing loudly.

    “What? What are you laughing about??” Dominick asked, embarrassed.

    “Nothing! The face you made was cute. You looked traumatized!” Derek continued laughing.

    “I’m so glad my trauma entertains you!” Dominick started laughing, too.

    “Oh, c’mon! It wasn’t THAT bad!” Derek prodded.

    “No, it was okay. The flavor was good, but the texture was a little disturbing!” Dominick explained.

    Shortly after, the shrimp plates were brought out from the kitchen. It was shrimp wrapped in bacon and covered in a coconut breading. Dominick was surprised that it tasted so great.

    “Wow, I have to say you have good taste… For a seafood eater, anyway!” Dominick teased.

    “Glad you like it!” Derek replied.

    As they finished their meal, Derek was already suggesting plans for after dinner. They agreed to rent a movie and take it back to Derek’s parents’ house, which had become his home again after the breakup.

    “C’mon, we’ll watch it in here.” Derek instructed as he walked back to his bedroom. The living room and family room, both equipped with DVD players and larger televisions, were empty. Dominick couldn’t understand why he’d want to watch the movie on the small TV in his room.

    Derek started the movie in his room and began to undress. Dominick froze, not sure what to make of the situation. Derek climbed into the bed wearing his boxers and moved one of his pillows to the other side of the bed for Dominick. Dominick didn’t want to read too much into the situation, so he left his clothes on, but kicked off his shoes and climbed in next to Derek.

    Dominick had shared a bed with straight men in the past, but it was almost as if there was an invisible barrier between them. They’d each balance themselves on the edges of the mattress, as far from each other as possible. He assumed this was straight protocol, so he placed himself at a safe distance from Derek. They had shared a bed before when renting movies, but it felt different this time for Dominick.

    This time was, in fact, different. Derek adjusted himself in the bed and was now laying so close to Dominick that their shoulders and arms were touching. Dominick’s whole body tensed as he felt the heat from Derek’s bare skin. He tried desperately not to show any signs of excitement. Derek had insisted in the past that he was straight, so Dominick wasn’t going to let his imagination run wild.

    Half way through the movie, Derek propped himself up on one elbow and shifted his gaze from the TV to Dominick.

    “What’s up?” Dominick finally asked. Derek just giggled as he reached over and pinched Dominick’s nipple. Dominick gulped as the blood rushed to his face… and other places. The two stared at each other for a few moments before Derek put his head back to the pillow and returned to the movie.

    “What the hell just happened?” Dominick thought to himself. Should he have pinched back? Or should he have said something? He mentally bitch-slapped himself a few times for freezing up.

    Before long, Derek was asleep in the bed next to him. Dominick sighed and finally relaxed before falling asleep as well.

    * * * * CHAPTER EIGHT * * * *


    “Thanks for dinner last night!” Dominick smiled as he got out of Derek’s car the next morning.

    Derek unfastened his seatbelt and walked around the car. Before Dominick could figure out what he was doing, Derek’s arms were wrapped around him in one of the best hugs he’d ever received. To top it off, the masculine smell from Derek’s cologne was a major turn-on, too.

    "Any time." Derek replied before releasing Dominick.

    Dominick practically skipped to the door of his home. He heard Derek’s car take off after he stepped inside at the same time his mother’s shoes scuffed down the hallway.

    “Who was that?” his mother asked in a sweet, excited voice.

    “His name is Derek.” Dominick answered. The look on his mother’s face coincided with her sudden mood change.

    “Derek? As in Claire’s Derek? Or as in Lindsey’s Derek? Oh wait. They’re one in the same, huh? Please tell me you’re not adding yourself to THAT drama!” she went off. This was one of the downsides to having family in the inner circle.

    “Yes, that Derek. And no, I’m not adding myself to the drama. We’re just hanging out.” Dominick said, blowing it off.

    “Oh, I didn’t realize ‘hanging out’ consisted of sleeping together in your underwear.” His mother jabbed.

    “Fuckin’ aye! Is there a billboard in town dedicated to that event?! How does everyone know about this?” Dominick was starting to get angry.

    “Well, Claire has been spending time with Phil. Phil told Claire, Claire was talking to Lindsey about it, and your aunt overheard and told me.”

    “This has gotten SO out of hand.” Dominick grunted.

    “No shit! What are you thinking? How could you do that to Lindsey and Claire? They’re your best friends, and one of them is your cousin!” his mother argued condescendingly.

    “You know what? Neither of them were in a relationship with him. They never went out on a date. They never even spent the night at each other’s houses. I hardly think that merits a claim to him. Plus, if I have to rule out every guy one or both of them have slept with, I’m going to have to travel outside the city limits. And all of that is irrelevant anyway, because he’s straight and we’re just friends.” He was almost shouting at this point.

    “I’ve heard about this guy, Dominick. He’s a user. He uses people until he gets what he wants and then he drops them on their asses. And right now he’s using you as a stand-in girlfriend character as a convenience until he can find someone he’s actually interested in that doesn’t already hate him.”

    “You want to know the truth?! Fine! I like him a lot, Mom. I really do. And what could he be using me for? I rarely get to pay for anything we do together. He picks me up from our house to take me back to his house and hang out, so it’s not a convenience thing. We’re not doing anything sexual, so he’s not using me for that. So he’s using me by enjoying my company? That seems like a pretty good deal to me! And it’s more than I can say for most of the people in my life right now!”

    “You’re going to make a fool of yourself falling for this straight man.” She continued to jab.

    “Oh yeah. God forbid I make a fool of myself for the sake of a potential relationship. Thank God you didn’t make a fool of yourself staying with a man that abused you for thirteen years, or a druggie for six years, or a man that cheated on you on a regular basis for three years. That doesn’t look foolish at all!” Dominick knew he was going straight for the throat with that one.

    “Well you should have learned from my mistakes! Not followed in my footsteps!”

    “I’m not following in your footsteps, Mom. Do you realize after seeing your screwed up relationships, Dad’s screwed up relationships, and all my friends’ screwed up relationships, I’ve never even let myself go on a date? I’m twenty-two years old and I have never been in an actual relationship. I’m not saying that’s what this is between Derek and I. But I am saying that I’m letting myself take a risk this time.” Dominick’s tone of voice had changed from pissed off to hurt as he continued talking.

    “Fine. Do whatever you want.” His mother almost whispered as she disappeared down the hallway.

    Things were starting to overwhelm Dominick. He wanted so badly to get a second opinion on Derek’s confusing behavior, but everyone in his group was biased and/or didn’t approve of their friendship. It’s not like he could vent about this fight to Derek since he was the topic of it all. It felt like he was closing himself off from all the people he used to run to in times like this.

    * * * * CHAPTER NINE * * * *


    “Well. You guys seem happy together.” Claire sneered.

    “What the hell are you talking about, Claire?!” Dominick pleaded.

    “You and Derek. Watching you two throughout this party has been ridiculous.”

    “Claire! Derek is straight. We’re just friends. You’re overreacting!” Dominick explained.

    “But you have feelings for him, don’t you?” Claire said bitterly.

    “Why is this a problem, Claire? I don’t get it!” Dominick was starting to get annoyed. It’s not like Claire made the best relationship decisions in the past, and even though Dominick tried to reason with her, he never got angry toward her about them. Then it occurred to him. “You’re jealous, aren’t you?”

    “What a joke.” She said evasively. “The point is, I went through this Lindsey over and over again. I’m so tired of my friends going after the same guys I’ve been with. I’ve come to expect it from her, but I guess I thought our friendship was better than mine and hers.”

    “Claire, I’m being serious. Nothing has happened between us and nothing will ever happen between us. He’s straight, and I’m a guy. Case closed.” The words stung as they came out of Dominick’s mouth.

    “Yeah, right. You think I can’t see the signs? You and Derek hug each other every time one of you leaves the room. And when you’re separated, Derek looks around constantly until you get back. And that hug when we left? That was not a straight guy, pat on the back and hug from a safe distance situation. It was a full body embrace and it was like five minutes long! I was waiting for you to just start humping in the middle of the driveway!” Claire had burst into full-blown tangent.

    “You know what? Screw this! I’m not going to keep arguing over this dumb bullshit. Derek and I are adults and if we want to be friends, or anything else for that matter, we don’t need anyone’s permission. I’ve already explained the situation to you, now get off my ass about it!” Dominick demanded.

    “Wow, you are just like Lindsey.” Claire added.

    “Alright, that’s it. I’m done.” Dominick said as he climbed out of the car at a stop light. “Take care, Claire.”

    “Are you kidding me? Get back in the-“ Claire’s voice was cut off with the slamming of her car door. They weren’t far from Derek’s house, so Dominick decided to walk back.

    Claire’s car turned around. She was now coasting up the road, pleading for him to get back in the car. After he ignored her for a full block, she stopped the car in the middle of the road and got out to follow him on foot.

    She opened her mouth to apologize, but Dominick’s anger and replaced the voice of reason he had before.

    “Fuck off. I said I was done. Just get in your car and go home.” Dominick said in a cold voice. With that, Claire’s eyes began to tear, but she did what he said. She turned the car around violently and sped down the street.

    Dominick texted Derek to let him know he was on his way back. Since Derek was asking him to stay in the first place, he assumed this wouldn’t be an issue. Derek confirmed this with a “Good! Just walk in when ya get here!” response.

    The five-minute walk felt like it was hours in Dominick’s head. The overwhelmed feeling he had after his argument with his mom had returned and he was feeling it more harshly with his slight inebriation. When he pushed the door open at Derek’s parents’ house, it was evident that the party was over. Apparently everyone had left shortly after Claire and Dominick.

    “Glad you’re ba-“ Derek rounded the corner and stopped in his tracks. “Are you okay?”

    “Yeah, I’m fine.” Dominick lied.

    “What happened?” Derek asked, realizing that he didn’t come back to continue the evening’s festivities.

    Dominick’s guard was down completely. He opened up to Derek about the arguments he had with his mother and Claire. He was on the verge of tears when he explained what he said to Claire minutes ago. He hated that his emotions were so much stronger in the recent month.

    “Let’s go for a drive.” Derek said, grabbing his keys.

    “Are you sober?” Dominick asked. He had a strong stance against drinking and driving.

    “Yep. I actually stopped drinking pretty early in the night. I wasn’t really in the mood to get drunk tonight.” He explained. Dominick followed him out to the car and they took off down the street. Derek turned on the radio and rolled down the windows.

    “This always relaxed me after a bad day!” Derek explained over the music.
    It took Dominick a few minutes to realize where they were going. Derek was driving toward Claire’s house.

    “Where are we going?” Dominick half-demanded.

    “We’re going to fix this.” Derek explained.

    “Uh, no. Trust me. This will make things worse.” Dominick sighed.

    “Friends come and go, but family is forever. You can’t let something like this go. You may not have the chance to fix it later.” Derek encouraged. Even through the drama, Dominick thought it was sweet to see Derek care about this.

    The car came to a stop in front of Claire’s house. Her bedroom light was on upstairs.

    “She’s still awake.” Dominick acknowledged out loud.

    “I know.” Derek smiled. “I texted her on the way over. She’s waiting for you at the door. I’m gonna sit here while you guys patch things up, so don’t take too long.” Derek joked and gave a quick wink.

    After about ten minutes Dominick returned to the car. The conversation went well and things were resolved between Dominick and Claire. The drive back to Derek’s house was fairly silent. Dominick was starting to doze off in the passenger seat while the wind tossed his hair around his face. When they got back to Derek’s house, he gave Dominick a light nudge to wake him up. As they exited the car and began walking to the door, Dominick called out Derek’s name softly.

    When Derek turned around to see what Dominick wanted, he was embraced in Dominick’s arms.

    “Thank you.” Dominick whispered.

    Derek didn’t answer. He placed the side of his head against the top of Dominick’s, which was rested on his chest. They stood in the embrace outside for several minutes; Derek listening to the rhythm of Dominick’s breathing, and Dominick listening to the beat of Derek’s heart.

    * * * * CHAPTER TEN * * * *


    Dominick was excited to see Derek’s name on his Caller ID. The work day was dragging, and to be honest Derek had been on his mind already.

    “Hey… I need to talk to you about something.” Derek’s voice sounded serious.

    “Um… Okay. What’s up?” Dominick tried to sound like he didn’t pick up on the ominous tone.

    “Let’s meet for dinner tonight, okay? We’ll talk then. Italian sound good?” Derek asked, masking the seriousness with a kind tone.

    “Yeah, that sounds good. Is everything okay?” Dominick asked, the concern beginning to rise in his voice.

    “We’ll talk later, okay? Don’t worry.” Derek told him.



    Dominick’s heart was racing when he stepped out of the car and made his way to the double doors of the restaurant. He accomplished nothing in the rest of his work day after his phone conversation with Derek. Instead he spent the time conjuring up thousands of theories about things that could have gone wrong.

    Did the rumors about their time together finally get back to him? Would that bother him enough to warrant a serious talk?? Or maybe he had gotten into another relationship and the girl had an issue with their friendship. It wouldn’t be the first time. Although he found this one unlikely, since it had now been two months since they started spending time together and they were practically inseparable. If there was a significant person in Derek’s life, Dominick would have known about it.

    Dominick’s brainstorming came to a total stop when he walked into the restaurant and saw Derek standing at the hostess station. It was the same feeling he got after taking a drink of cold water after a really long workout. Seeing Derek was like a drug that coursed through his body and, as much as he hated to admit it, even an eight hour day at work away from him nearly gave him the shakes these days. Despite his efforts to resist, he was in love with his best friend.

    Derek smiled and gave Dominick a hug as if they hadn’t seen each other in years. It was the perfect remedy to Dominick’s withdrawals. Derek gently guided Dominick by the shoulder around the hostess station and they followed the hostess down the hallway and through the sea of tables until they arrived at an empty two-seater.

    “How was your day at work?” Derek asked after they took their seats.

    “It was good. What did you want to talk about?” Dominick couldn’t resist. It had been plaguing him all day. Derek laughed a little and looked into Dominick’s eyes for a moment before answer.

    “I have some ba-… some interesting news.” Derek started.

    “Okay...”

    “With the economy and everything the way it is, my company is doing a lot of ‘shifting’ around.” Derek tip-toed. Dominick blinked and practically held his breath.

    “The good news is that I’ve been offered a promotion.” Derek continued.

    “Wow, that’s what this is about? You worried the hell out of me! Congratulations!” Dominick exclaimed. His excitement quickly faded as Derek didn’t share the enthusiasm.

    “The promotion is sort of by default, though. They’re eliminating my position in this region. I have to transfer to Brooklyn.” Derek explained more solemnly.

    “Did you accept the offer?” Dominick almost whispered.

    “I had to, Dominick. I can’t be unemployed living with my parents. I have to support my daughter.” Derek explained. Dominick didn’t see much of Derek’s daughter. She spent most of her time with her mother. Sometimes Dominick completely forgot Derek was a father.

    “I understand.” Dominick said after a period of silence. “When?”

    “I fly out next week for five days to get things sorted out. Then I’ll be back for a week before I drive out there with Amber. I’ve already sorted out the custody situation with her mother. With her being unemployed, we decided it would be best for me to have primary custody.” Derek continued to explain.

    “Wow. Those are some big changes. I hope… I hope it all works out.” Dominick was almost completely shut down by this point.

    “It will be a challenge, but I think it’s for the best. I actually have family in Brooklyn. My aunt offered rooms for us in her home. Everything is just lining up, ya know?” Derek explained.

    “Well congratulations again. It sounds like it was meant to be.” Dominick said, forcing a smile.

    The rest of the meal was fairly quiet. Dominick’s mind was racing even more than before and he had lost his appetite as a result. Prior to getting close to Derek, it had been years since he last cried. Why did it seem like he was so much more hypersensitive around him? He had to concentrate on his breathing to avoid the tears forming in his eyes.

    Dominick went home after dinner. It was the first time he had spent an early evening at home in weeks. After staring at the ceiling above his bed for several minutes, he decided to text Derek.

    Dominick: Sorry if I seem like a douche about the whole Brooklyn thing. I’m glad for you, really… Just wished we had become friends sooner.
    Derek: Me too. I’ll see you tomorrow, right?
    Dominick: Definitely!

    I posted that last comment before I saw a new chapter had been posted. That's the danger of leaving a tab open with a chapter for later reading. You miss things.

    So, thoughts on this latest development... Dominick seems to be taking it well.

    Agreed. While it would be great if Derek refused the promotion and stayed to proclaim his love for Dominick, it wouldn't be the most responsible decision. I'm sure Dominick would understand.

    Of course, the story may not be over when Derek moves and there shouldn't be any reason for them not to keep in touch. I sure hope there is some passionate love-making before the story ends. If there isn't any, Dominick better be pretty pissed that he's been lead on for so long.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment, SayWhat :]

    * * * * CHAPTER ELEVEN * * * *


    After the announcement that Derek was relocating became public, the people in Dominick’s life that were once outraged at their friendship were suddenly offering their sympathies. It was clear to everyone that they had become much closer than anyone could have expected. Unfortunately, it was equally clear that Dominick was hurting over the news.

    Derek’s family arranged a dinner at their favorite restaurant before his short trip to Brooklyn. His friends were organizing a going away party as well, but this was more of a family event. Dominick was surprised when Derek’s parents invited him to join them.

    Half way through the meal, Derek’s father cleared his throat and the surrounding family members grew silent.

    “I just wanted to let you two know, whether the rumors are true or not, I am happy as long as you are both happy.” He announced. Dominick’s eyes widened and he nearly choked on his food. Derek laughed it off, shaking his head slightly. The rest of the table laughed at their embarrassment, agreed in various ways, and continued their meal. Dominick was delighted by the supporting nature of Derek’s family, even if he was straight.

    “Well, I haven’t gone to the dark side yet,” Derek clarified, still laughing, “but thanks anyway.”

    After dinner, Derek drove Dominick home. When he parked the car, he got out for the last hug they’d share for five days. Dominick had to fight the tears back again. He hated feeling so vulnerable in front of Derek.

    “I’ll be back in five days!” Derek assured as he let go of Dominick.

    “I know!” Dominick smiled. It was so difficult to balance the happiness he felt with Derek standing in front of him with the sadness he felt from the idea of losing him.



    It was Monday, and the first day Dominick would not see Derek since they began spending time together two months ago. He resisted the urge to text Derek throughout the day. He didn’t want to appear clingy, and he also didn’t want to risk that his thumbs would take over and beg Derek not to leave. It didn’t take long for his phone to buzz, though.

    Derek: Hypothetically speaking, would it be weird if I said I miss you?
    Dominick: Haha. I miss you, too!

    They continued texting throughout the night until Derek went to bed. He was three hours ahead in Brooklyn and had to go to his office early in the morning.
    The next day Dominick maintained the same routine. He’d wait for Derek to initiate a conversation. It had almost become a game to him to see if Derek actually thought about him as much as he thought about Derek. As childish as it was, Derek didn’t let him down.

    Derek: Jerk!!!
    Dominick: What?! Why am I a jerk?!
    Derek: You stopped talkin’ to me.
    Dominick: I don’t wanna get on your nerves.
    Derek: Haha. Not possible.
    Dominick: Don’t lie!! Haha.
    Derek: I’m not!!!
    Dominick: Okay, but I’m saving this message so I can prove you asked for it later on down the road! Haha.
    Derek: Psh. You won’t ever need it.

    Their banter continued throughout the week. As much as Dominick loved it, he knew it wasn’t smart to let himself get even more attached to Derek.



    The week finally passed and Dominick was waiting eagerly at the airport for Derek to return home. His whole body surged when Derek rounded the corner at the airport. He had to resist the urge to run toward him like a cheesy Hallmark movie, but in seconds he was once again in one the best embraces he’d ever felt. It always amazed him that Derek could deliver a better hug than the last every time.

    On the drive home, Derek had many exciting things to share about Brooklyn. He sounded thrilled about the move. Dominick tried his best not to be selfish and sound equally excited.

    “Dom has a car??” Derek’s father sounded shocked as they walked in the front door.

    “Of course I have a car! I have to drive to and from work!” Dominick said as he and Derek laughed aloud.

    After catching up with his family, Derek and Dominick retreated to his bedroom to watch TV and relax. Dominick hopped into bed with Derek with much less reservation than he once had. He was living in the moment, absorbing the best of every last second they had together.

    “I’m gonna miss this.” Derek almost whispered. Dominick wanted to ignore it. He was trying not to dwell on the topic.

    “I will, too.” He smiled, turning to make eye contact with Derek.

    “Then come with me.” Derek half-asked.

    “Wouldn’t that be nice?” Dominick laughed. He couldn’t tell if Derek was being serious or not.

    “Yeah! That’s why I asked, dork. You’ve always wanted to see New York. You could drive with me and I’ll pay for a ticket to fly you home. And if you like it there, you can come back and get your things.” He reasoned.

    “It’s not that simple, Derek.” Dominick turned serious.

    “Sure it is. Why wouldn’t it be? You don’t have any kids, you’re not in college. I know you like your job, but it’s not what you want to do with your life. And most of all, I know you want to get out of this town. How many chances do you think you’re going to get?” Derek explained.

    “That’s cute, and it sounds simple enough. But there’s no way I’ll be able to find a job in Brooklyn that pays anywhere near what I make out here. All of my family is here. And to be one-hundred percent honest, I’m nervous about where our friendship will go once you find a girl you want to get serious with. It didn’t work out so well for anyone last time.” Dominick rambled.

    “So you still don’t trust me?” Derek asked. Dominick paused before answering.

    “It’s not that I don’t trust you. I just know my luck and I assume the worst. The point is that I have responsibilities to other people here.” Dominick explained.

    “That’s a cop out, but you have to do whatever you feel is best for you. Please don’t let your life pass you by worrying about what you owe other people. I’d hate to see you wake up one day and wonder ‘What if?’ after it’s too late. If you want to come, you'll make it happen. If you don't want to come with me, just look me in the eyes and tell me it's not what you want.” Derek pushed.

    “I’m sorry, Derek. I just can’t.”

    “I understand.” Derek said solemnly, turning away from Dominick to face the wall.

    Oh oh! Just finishing catching up on an excellent story and I already could bitch slap Dominick...lol He can't forgo a chance like this and he seems to dwell on that "straight" thought about Derek. Not saying a straight guy and gay guy can't be best friend, but from the sound of this, it has developed into something a little more. Maybe not sex, but the bond it too deep. What if I come and dump a bucket of cold water over Dominick's head to wake him up............... Don't keep us waiting too long for an update, SayWhat.

    Hmm. Interesting perspective! I don't think many people, especially younger people, comprehend an emotional stage between a friendship and a relationship. It seems like if you're "more than friends" the next natural step is "relationship". Sure, there are millions of sexual variations to it all, but emotionally it seems pretty black and white to most people.
