Brotherly Love - Chapter 79
Kris awoke in the morning to his alarm clock blaring Led Zeppelin on the classic rock station. He’d updated his musical tastes since joining the band. Today was the first day of school and he was actually looking forward to it. He was taking jazz band as an elective this year. Having auditioned the end of last year, Kris just found out a couple of weeks ago that he’d made it.
After showering, he texted Adam, then he got dressed and waited for him to answer. He must still be sleeping.
Pam had made breakfast for him and was waiting downstairs. “Good morning, Kris.”
“Ready for your first day of school?”
“Good, sweetie. I’ve been a little worried about you.”
“You seem a lot happier this week.”
“I’m fine, mom. I really am.”
And she believed him. They finished breakfast as Ethan arrived to pick up Kris for school.
“Have a great day, boys”, Pam shouted as they left.
Then Pam sat down at the kitchen table with a fresh cup of coffee and took a deep sigh. Sure, he was OK, but she was a mess; missing all of her children at once. Maybe it was time for her to go back to work. She had a part time job, but maybe she needed something more.
As she was sitting there, stewing over what to do with her life, there was a knock at the kitchen door. Pam turned to look and saw Amanda waving at her. She grinned and opened the door. “How did you know I needed a friend today?” she asked, hugging the younger woman.
“I thought this might be a hard day for you.”
“Yeah, a little.”
The two women chatted about everything. Pam told her that Kris seemed to be a lot better now that he knew what to expect with Adam at school. “He went over every day to see him last week. And, Adam comes home on the weekends. I think it really was just the anticipation of not knowing.”
“Sounds like it. When I talked to him, he was really down. I’m glad he’s feeling better, Pam. So, how does Adam like school so far?”
Ethan and Kris drove to school and parked his car in the student lot. Now that they were juniors, they were allowed to reserve a parking spot.
Ethan parked the car and they sauntered into the building, like they owned the place. They looked around at all the new blood; “freshmen”, Ethan nodded in the direction of a couple of doe eyed, scared looking girls. “Can we help you?” He asked.
Kris stood back and laughed at his friend. After Ethan pointed the girls in the right direction, he turned to Kris. “Wow, hitting on the freshmen already, Eth?”
“Hey, I’m just being a good citizen, that’s all”, but laughed at himself.
They found homeroom and took a seat. They recognized most of the kids in here. “Cale”, Kris called to his friend, just walking into the classroom.
“Hey man”, he answered and they all started chatting about their summer until the teacher came in and got their attention.
Kris had friends in almost all of his classes, for which he was grateful. Allison had Algebra II and both she and Lucy had science class with him and Ethan. Kris met up with Charles and Cale during History.
The last class of the day was Jazz Band. He was so excited; he’d be one of two guitarists, but he didn’t think he’d know anyone in this class. However, he walked in and sat down, waiting for the teacher begin, and this guy he didn’t recognize bounded into the classroom. “Hey there”, he said, coming right up to Kris and practically getting in his face.
“Hey”, Kris answered, a confused look on his face.
“I’m Desmond”, the boy announced. “You’re Kris, right?”
“Um, yeah. How do you know that?”
The boy laughed, “I just know”. Kris’s eyes got wide and the boy laughed again. “I’m the other guitar player”, he covered, nicely. “You can call me Des.”
“Oh, cool”, Kris felt the awkward moment dissipate. Then Des reached his hand out to Kris, “Nice to meet you, Kris.”
He’d just transferred schools from across town. “Better neighborhood”, is all he said in explanation. It wasn’t Kris’s business, anyway.
“You play any sports?” Kris asked him.
“Nah, just guitar and some bass.”
“Cool, I play both too. And piano.”
“I know”, Des chuckled and then turned his head. Quickly, he added, “I asked about my competition”, he said, smiling.
Kris thought that was kind of an odd thing to say, since they weren’t really competition and he hoped the guy wasn’t like a stalker or anything. But after that strange introduction, Desmond turned out to be a pretty cool guy. They talked about music they liked and other stuff until class started. The guy could play well, anyway.
Ethan and Kris drove home after school and Kris immediately checked his phone. There were three texts from Adam. ‘Morning, baby! Miss you’, then an hour later, ‘I guess I did miss you. Slept in’, and then twenty minutes ago, ‘Call me when you get out’. Kris smiled, reading all of his messages.
“Adam?” Ethan commented on the goofy look on Kris’s face.
“Yeah”, he said, already dialing Adam’s number. Adam answered on the first ring.
“Hey, Adam. I missed you, too.”
“Can you come over?”
“I don’t know, I’ll have to ask when I get home. I’m almost there.”
After Kris was dropped off, he walked in the kitchen door to sweet talk his mom into letting him go and see Adam tonight, but no. She wouldn’t cave.
“Not on a school night. Sorry, Kris.” She said, firmly.
“But, I don’t have any homework.” He gave her his best innocent smile. “Just until dinner?”
“That wouldn’t be much time, Kris.”
“Enough”, he slipped. “I mean…”
She gave him the evil eye.
“I just miss him, mom.”
“We will eat at 6:00 sharp. Be here”, she warned.
Kris kissed her cheek and ran out the door, “Love you, mom”, texting Adam running out to the car. ‘On my way’
He started the engine and pulled out of the driveway and sped off towards Adam.
‘She caved? LOL’
Kris didn’t see the response till he’d parked the car in front of the dorm.
Adam was outside waiting for him.
“I have to be home by six.”
“Ok baby.” Adam kissed him and then they walked to his room.
Tommy was there and offered to leave, but they both shook their heads. “Tommy, you don’t always have to leave. We’ll just hang today, alright?”
“Ok. I don’t want to be a cock blocker or anything”, he snorted.
“It’s cool”. Then he turned all his attention to Kris, “So baby, how was your first day of school?”
Kris told him about his classes, his friends, everything. Then he got to the last class. “So Jazz band is gonna be great. There’s one other guitar player. His name is Desmond.”
“Is he cute?”
Kris decided not to mention that at first, Desmond totally gave him the creeps. It was probably nothing.
Isaac joined them and they made plans for the weekend to finish putting in all of the band equipment into the storage unit; the amps and stuff.
At about five-thirty, Adam reminded Kris that he needed to go.
“I wish I could stay”, he said, sadly.
“I know baby, me too.” Adam walked Kris out to his car and they spent a few minutes saying good bye and then Kris drove home.
Adam walked back to his room and then he and the guys went to dinner.
The next day at school, Desmond found Kris at lunch, so Kris felt like he should invite him to sit with him and his friends. They all liked him, well enough. After school, he found Kris and Ethan. “Hey, what are you guys doing now?”
“Um, I’m going to see Adam”, Kris announced.
“Oh”, he replied, rolling his eyes. Only Ethan caught it. Then, “Who’s Adam?” Sounding curious and interested.
“My boyfriend”, Kris had never mentioned he was gay to Desmond. Everyone who counted already knew that.
He just shot him a strange look, “Tomorrow, then?”
Ethan interjected, “Man, Kris is seeing Adam every day”, he chuckled, while Kris punched his friend in the arm, but nodded in agreement.
“We should hang out sometime. I don’t have many friends yet.”
“I’ll hang out with you, Desmond”, Ethan offered. “You play ball?”
“Ball? Uh, no.”
“He’s a musician, Ethan.”
“Uh, I guess I better go. See you tomorrow, Kris?”
“Yeah, we’ll see you tomorrow”, Ethan broke in again. When Des had left, “Man, there’s something strange about that guy…”
“He’s ok”, Kris shrugged. “I think he just wants to be friends.”
“Yeah, with just you”, Ethan giggled. “He has a crush on you.”
“No he doesn’t”, Kris shook it off. “You want to hang out with me at Adam and Tommy’s today?”
“Ok”, Ethan agreed. Kris texted his mom, ‘Can I see Adam? Be home by 6p.’
A few minutes later, his phone buzzed, “Don’t be late”, she replied.
“Their dorm is really cool”, Kris said as they drove to the campus and then he texted Adam that they were on their way.
Desmond started the walk home. Home, if that’s what you could call it. His phone rang as he was walking. “Yeah?”
“How’d it go?”
“Fine? Are you friends, yet?”
“Yeah, I guess.”
“You guess”, the other voice spat.
“It’s just the second day, man. Fuckin’ chill.”
“Don’t tell me to chill”, it spoke through clenched teeth. “I’ve waited long enough.”
“He’s nice. I like him.”
“Well, after I get done with him”, he smirked through the phone, “You can have him.”
Des hung up his phone, “What a dick”, he said out loud. Unfortunately for him though, the asshole owned him right now.
Adam answered the door and pulled Kris inside; Ethan following behind. “Baby”, he started and immediately engulfed Kris’s lips with his own.
Ethan laughed, “Man, I’d say, get a room, but, this is your room, so…”
“Hey Ethan”, Tommy nodded, strumming his guitar on his bed.
“Hey man”, Ethan sat down and they immediately started talking about Dani, while the other two said hello. When they came up for air, Adam joined their conversation. “I talked to her yesterday; I think she’s coming home this weekend.” And then went back to Kris’s lips.
“How does he do that?”
Tommy shook his head.
Eventually, the conversation turned to school and Ethan just had to tell them about Desmond.
“Oh, he’s totally hitting on you, baby?”
“No he’s not”, Kris defended.
“Baby, you’re so hot. I wouldn’t blame him”, Adam teased.
“He’s new. He just wants to be friends”, he shot Ethan a look for bringing it up.
“Well, maybe I should meet him, just to make sure.”
“Not unless I should be.”
A few other guys came over and hung out with them and pretty soon it was time for Kris and Ethan to get home. “I’m just teasing you about that guy, you know that, right?”
Kris nodded, “I know. I’m usually the one who’s jealous.” They briefly remembered Curtis, but that made them think of Earl, and they both shuddered.
“See you tomorrow?”
“Yeah, unless mom puts a stop to this.”
“I love you, Kris”, Adam kissed him goodbye, while his friends catcalled and whistled at them.
“Love you too, Adam.”
As they left, their more obnoxious friends made kissing noises.
“Funny, guys”, Adam chucked a pillow in the general direction of the offenders.
Kris drove to Adam’s after school on Friday to pick him up. Mom was planning a nice dinner in Adam’s honor, so he had to promise that they’d be home by six. Tommy had already taken off to see Dani, so they had the room to themselves.
“I missed you so much”, Adam said, leading Kris to the bed, undressing him along the way.
“Me too”, Kris was also pulling at Adam’s clothes. Once fully naked, Adam pulled him under the blankets. They kissed and pawed at each other until they were panting with want. Adam reached for the lube and prepped Kris. “I’m gonna make you feel so good baby.”
They got home just before six and Pam greeted them at the door. “Smells delicious, mom”, Adam kissed her on the cheek.
“Tell me all about school, sweetie…”
They had a nice dinner and talked about their week. Adam told them about the upcoming audition for their Shakespeare Theatre. It ran through the school year by semester.
After dinner, the boys excused themselves and went to Kris’s room. They were going to enjoy this weekend, because Kris was starting fall ball this week and wouldn’t be able to come over until Friday.
“It’s ok, Kris. At least we had the last two weeks, right?”
“Yeah, I know.”
“Hey, babe, let’s go over to the storage unit tomorrow. Tommy and Isaac are meeting us at 2:00 o’clock with a keyboardist to audition, but we can go early and…”
Kris nodded, while Adam petted his hair, lying together on the bed. The door was shut, but not locked. Tomorrow, Kris thought, smiling.
After dinner, Des went up to his room and got on his PS3. He played Modern Warfare online with random players. Tonight’s wasn’t random, though. He wondered how the guy did it; but sure enough the sound of his voice was coming through the television.
“So I have an idea”, he said, as his character was shooting at a moving target on the screen.
“Yeah?” Des answered.
“I’ll hook you up with some pot. Invite him over.”
“Here?” Des dropped his controller. “That might be suspicious.”
“You’re right. You need a place, though. Secret” The older dude was brainstorming.
“I’ll figure it out, alright, man? I just met the guy this week. These things take time. You want this to work, right? ”
The other guy conceded for now.
“Hey, can I still get the weed?”
“You make a date with the kid first and then I’ll deliver.”
Fucker “Yeah, alright. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.”
And he saw his character drop off the screen and then he was alone.
Desmond got ready for bed, before they his brothers came in. He pretended he was asleep so they didn’t ask any questions. And then he plotted his next move till he drifted off.
