This is fanfiction. Just for fun, no harm intended. I do love my boys.
Warnings: none just yet. But don't worry, there will be.
Kris is a bartender in a club and Adam is hired as the new singer/waiter. They have an immediate attraction. Will it lead to more? Sorry, sucky summary.
I started this almost a year ago because i saw ally4's avi of Kris, and his arms just looked so good, I needed to write a story about them.
I got really busy with school and forgot about the story. I just found it again and my dear wizardesslyn got it beta'd for me, so here it is! It's finished. I'll post once a week.
It's good to be back. For those still interested in Brotherly Love, I'm still working on it. I just haven't had any time with school and work. I haven't forgotten about it.
Up in Arms - Chapter 1/5
Adam walked into the club, eyes roaming for someone who looked like they were in charge. He noticed a guy at the bar, bent over the counter. When he stood up, the guy smiled at Adam. He's cute, Adam thought. He was about to walk over to the bar and introduce himself, when he saw a slightly older gentleman in a suit heading towards him.
"Hello, are you Adam?" The man asked.
"Yes, sir", he responded.
The man chuckled, and held out his hand. "Please call me Ian."
"Ian. Nice to meet you"
"Well come on back, Adam. Is that your resume?"
"Yes", Adam handed him the folder.
"Kris", he called over to the cutie behind the bar.
"Yeah boss", Kris looked over at Adam again.
"I'll be in my office if anyone needs me."
"Right", the man called Kris winked at Adam and then went back to work.
"So Adam, how long have you been a performer?" Kris heard his boss ask that beautiful man before he shut the door.
Damn, Kris thought. I hope he gets the job.
Forty five minutes later, Ian came out with the gorgeous man named Adam following closely behind him with what looked like a contract in his hands.
"Come over here, Adam, I want to introduce you to our best bartender and fellow performer, Kristopher Allen."
"Kris", Kris corrected, holding his hand out to shake Adam's.
"Adam Lambert. Nice to meet you, Kris." Both of their eyes lit up and Ian just shook his head.
"Yeah, I had a feeling you two would hit it off", he chuckled.
They both blushed, releasing their hands quickly. Adam noticed what a strong handshake Kris had and those arms. Damn, they looked too fine; so well defined and muscular. Adam just wanted to reach out and touch them. That man should never wear sleeves, Adam chuckled to himself. "Well, I better go”, he said out loud, instead. “Ian, thank you so much for the opportunity."
"You're welcome, Adam. See you tomorrow night."
Kris went back to work but his thoughts kept travelling back to Adam. Fuck, he was gorgeous. "Ian", Kris called to his boss.
"So, what does Adam do?" He tried to sound nonchalant, but Ian just shook his head again.
"He's a singer. Oh, and he'll wait tables on his off nights."
"Yeah", Ian chuckled, "Wait till you hear him, Kris."
"Can't fucking wait", Kris said under his breath and then went back to setting up his bar for the evening, wishing it was tomorrow night already.
Later that same evening, Kris was busy behind the bar serving customers. Friday night was busy at the club. Kris loved the tips, but wondered what it would be like to actually go out himself on a Friday night, like on a date. He pushed that thought away and walked up to a new customer without looking up he asked, "What can I get you?"
"Well, your smile for starters."
Kris looked up and saw the tall gorgeous blue eyed black haired, did I say gorgeous, man in front of him. "Adam."
"You remembered my name", Adam replied, eyes twinkling.
Kris blushed, "I thought you didn't start until tomorrow."
"I don't", he shrugged. "I just wanted to check the place out before I performed."
"Oh, is that all?" Kris tried not to sound disappointed.
Adam flashed a grin, making Kris weak at the knees. "Well, I did hear that the drinks were to die for."
Adam just nodded. "What's your specialty, Kris?"
"You remembered my name", he flirted back.
Kris quickly made one of his special concoctions and pushed the glass in front of Adam.
The lights on the stage lowered and the spotlight followed the announcer as he introduced tonight's act.
"Wait till you hear Allison, she's amazing", Kris said to Adam.
He turned around to face the stage and sipped on his drink. "God, Kris. This drink is amazing", he said, taking a long sip and then licking his lips.
Kris blushed for the third time that night, "Thanks."
Allison came out rocking with her band behind her. She had bright red hair and leather pants and vest with red suede rocker boots. "Damn", Adam commented.
"She's really nice, too. I'll introduce you after the show", Kris promised. "Can I get you anything else, Adam?"
"Yeah, another one of these", he winked. If Kris was this good at making drinks, I wonder what else he's good at? Then he reprimanded his dirty thoughts; because yes, they were dirty thoughts.
Adam tried to watch the show. Allison was really good. What a voice. However, he kept turning around to watch Kris instead. Whenever he poured a drink or handed someone a glass, his muscles flexed and Adam had such a hard on right now. If Kris were just some twink on the dance floor, Adam would have dragged him to a back room by now and fucked him against the wall. But Kris worked here and that just wouldn't be cool.
Besides, he didn't even know if Kris was gay. Kris is definitely gay; the way he smiled at Adam and blushed for him. Yeah, now Adam just had to figure out the best way to get him.
Adam came back to the club the next afternoon for his first rehearsal with the house band and a quick sound check. He walked inside with his performance outfit draped over his shoulder. Adam looked over at the bar to see if Kris was there. He didn't see him at first and was a little disappointed. But then Kris stood up, revealing himself; flexing those fucking hot arms. Adam couldn't help but stare. “Oh, hey Adam”, Kris called out to him,
“Ready for your first show?”
“Yeah, I think so. Are you working tonight?” That was a stupid question, Adam.
“Yeah, I’ll be here all night.”
Was that a smirk? God, he’d like to fuck that smirk right off of Kris's face.
Kris just smirked again, like he knew what Adam was thinking. "Good luck."
Adam hurried away and went in the back to see the dressing room and hang up his clothes. Then he came onto the stage to walk around and get a feel for the space. Every once in a while, he'd notice Kris looking at him and then when he’d stare back, Kris would blush and look away. God, he's so gorgeous.
The band arrived for sound check. He hadn't played with them before tonight, but had given them a list of the songs he was going to perform. They were professionals.
They began to warm up and Adam just got a feel for their sound. He was swaying and bopping to the music when they cut into his first number, Whole Lotta Love. Kris looked up when he heard that voice, damn, he can sing.
Then he began slinking around the stage and belting out notes. Adam would stop every once in a while to fix something with the band, and then go right back to it. He had a variety of dance and rock songs that would get the audience up and moving on the dance floor.
Ian came out and went over to the bar where Kris was openly gaping at the man now. “Told ya”, he said to Kris.
“Thank you”, Kris said, dreamily. This man was sex on legs and he wanted him.
Ian laughed, and patted Kris on the shoulder.
Kris watched the rest of rehearsal, and Adam knew he was being watched, so he began to sing right to Kris; giving him sultry eyes and smirks. Kris was getting a major hard on behind the bar. Fuck, he’ll be the death of me, I’m sure of it.
When the band was finished, Adam hopped off the stage and headed directly to the bar. Kris was turned around, his back towards him, stacking bottles on the shelves. It was Adam’s time to stare. Whenever Kris moved his arms, his muscles popped; so well defined. God, he was so hot. Adam couldn't help thinking of those arms around his waist while he fucked into that sweet ass.
Kris had turned around and was leaning on the bar. “I said… you’re an amazing singer.”
“No, I really mean it, man. You’re a rock star.”
It was Adam’s turn to blush. “So, when do I get to hear you sing?”
“Oh, I do an acoustic set every Monday night.”
“Great, I think I’m waiting tables that night.”
Kris just smiled.
“Well, I better get back.”
“Yeah, good luck tonight.”
Adam smiled. “Thanks Kris”, he said as he walked away. Man he was so hot for that boy.
Kris watched Adam walk away. I’m so fucked, he thought to himself.
The club was packed. Along with Friday night, Saturday drew their biggest crowd. Adam was back stage getting dressed and doing his makeup when Ian came back to check on him.
“Nah, I’m most at home when I’m on stage”, he beamed.
“You’re gonna kill it”, Ian winked and then left Adam alone to finish getting ready.
The crowd was getting loud; lots of drinking and talking over the house music. Kris was behind the bar, pouring and mixing drinks. He loved his job. He could pour out of two bottles at once, and occasionally did a couple of tricks for the customers; like spinning the bottle in the air and tossing it from one hand to the other and then behind his back. He got better tips when he was entertaining the patrons.
The house music was lowered and then the stage light came on. The bar got relatively quiet as Ian came out to announce Adam. He spoke a few words, thanking everyone for coming out tonight, and then… “Let’s give a huge welcome to Adam Lambert!”
The band came out playing the intro to Whole Lotta Love. People began to file towards the front of the stage, already clapping their hands. Then Adam came out from behind the stage, dressed head to toe in black leather, walking on 4 inch healed boots and belting out the words. Kris turned around just in time to see him slink across the stage and then stand in front of the crowd, shaking his hips.
Fuck, Kris breathed, almost spilling a drink; but he saved it.
“Wow, he’s really good”, Kris heard someone say at the bar. He could only nod his head.
Adam was playing to the crowd. There was a group of pretty boys, right up front that were totally turned on by Adam. He was milking it. A couple of times, Adam glanced over at the bar and notice Kris trying not to stare. He chose that moment to grab his crotch while doing a knee bend; his ass practically touching the floor, and then popped up, still singing.
Fuck, he’s agile, Kris thought. Bet he’s amazing in bed. Kris’s face warmed, just thinking about Adam in bed with him.
Allison laughed at him. “So, ask him out.” She was waiting tables, and had gone to pick up drinks from the bar.
“What? No. We work together. Besides, I’m sure I’m totally out of his league.”
“I saw the way he was looking at you last night.”
“How did you notice that? You were on stage.”
“I see everything, baby boy.”
“Yeah, I don’t know. And, he seems really toppy.”
“You know you’re hot, Kris. He’s hot. You two would be so hot together.” She said, walking away.
Kris continued watching Adam’s set, trying to ignore the growing bulge in his pants, while serving his customers at the bar.
When Adam’s set was over, he went backstage to wind down. Ian came back to congratulate him. “Hear that crowd? They’re still cheering for you.” Ian knew he had a hit on his hands.
“Thanks, Ian. Can I get a drink?”
“Sure, do you want me to bring you something, or do you want to check out the bar yourself.”
The way he drawled out “check out the bar”, made Adam wonder.
“Um, yeah. I think I’ll head over and say hi to Kris.”
“Sure thing, Adam”, Ian said almost smirking.
“He makes really great drinks.” That was lame, Adam
“Kris is the best”, Ian patted him on the shoulder, giving him a wink.
It sounded like Ian was actually encouraging Adam to pursue Kris. So, he’s not off limits. That made Adam smile as he headed over to the bar.
He was stopped several times along the way, by both guys and ladies who wanted to fawn all over him. “Thanks”, he’d say, slowly moving towards the bar. He noticed Kris watching him and shaking his head.
When Adam finally made his way over to the bar, Kris just laughed. “Well, you’re popular”, he teased.
“So, can you make me another one of your specialty concoctions? Oh, light this time, I still have two more sets.”
“Sure thing, Adam.”
Kris decided to show off his skills a bit. Adam was only watching his arms. “Impressive”, he finally said, when Kris put the drink in front of him.
“The customers like it”, Kris shrugged.
“So do I”, Adam flirted.
Just then, Allison came back over. “Adam, you were incredible”
“My friends just call me Alli.” She gave Kris an encouraging look and mouthed, “Go on”, before taking her drinks and walking away.
Adam was drumming up his own encouragement and then both said at the exact same time, “Would you like to go out sometime?”
They both laughed, “Well, at least we have the same idea”, Adam said first.
“Yes”, Kris answered.
