When Brian Thompson graduated, college life was at it's best for him. He had a degree, he was soon to marry a wonderful lady, and hopefully start a family. However, that had been several years ago. Now at thirty- five years old his marriage had failed, there were no children to speak of and he was in the process of starting a new job. Brian had been teaching English at the high school level for quite a while yet here he was starting over again. His wife ended up with his house and most everything in it. Brian got to keep his car, some of his possessions and half his dignity. Some nights he ended up at a bar somewhere listening to music and trying his best to wash away the pain he had endured in his marriage.
This particular night found him in a bar trying to drown his sorrows. One by one he saturated them with alcohol. Brian was never much of a drinker so it didn't take long for him to feel the effects. He sat there thinking of the past and where it all went wrong. Actually, if the truth was known, Brian had a lot going for him. He was well educated, had a good job, and wasn't hard on the eyes. He stood right at six feet tall with dark brown hair and blue eyes. He weighed in at around a hundred eighty pounds, clean cut, with a nice hairy chest to complete the package. He was merely sitting there feeling sorry for himself. He knew where and why his marriage had failed. Brian knew that there was something about him that was different. However, being raised in a Christian home and taught the values of his family he just couldn't express himself. He couldn't bring himself to let anyone know that he was gay. He wanted a partner, he wanted love, but he just didn't see how it would all fit into the plan. He just didn't see how he could ever be happy. Brian was so absorbed in his thoughts that he didn't see the man standing in front of him.
"Are you okay, buddy?" the man asked, bringing Brian out of his self pitied revere.
Brian looked up and into quite possibly one of the most handsome faces he'd ever seen in his life. For a moment he lost the ability to speak as he tried to regain his composure.
"Sir, are you okay?" the man asked again. This time he reached out and put his hand on Brian's shoulder.
"What?" "Yes, I'm fine." Brian said, trying to assure himself that it was true.
"Sorry man." "You looked like you were out of it there for a minute." This handsome stranger spoke again.
"I was: I guess." Brian said, remembering his thoughts. He looked back at this man once again. He felt himself drawn to him somehow. He was a clean-cut young man no doubt in his twenties. He had brown hair, mesmerizing green eyes, and a killer smile. He stood around five seven with broad shoulders and a nice covering of hair on his chest that shown through the top of his button down shirt. He was definitely Brian's type. However, he wasn't in a gay bar and the chances of this guy being gay and attracted to another guy in his thirties was about as realistic as being struck by lightning in a house you just purchased with your lottery winnings.
"You sure you're okay?" "You seem sort of spaced out." The stranger said, bringing Brian once again out of his thoughts.
"Oh yeah, I'm fine. Just a little preoccupied I guess." Brian said, with a slight smile.
"I see." "Anything you want to talk about?" "It's kind of slow tonight and I've got some time." The stranger said, giving Brian a smile.
"Nah, I'm sure you have to listen to people's problems all the time man. I don't want to bore you with mine." Brian said, feeling kind of silly for his earlier reaction.
"No, seriously man. It's okay." "Sometimes it helps to talk about it." The stranger said, leaning on the bar and looking at Brian.
"Are you sure?" Brian asked, still a bit unsure of talking to a total stranger about his personal life.
"Sure I'm sure." "By the way, I'm Nathan Brown." He said, extending his hand to Brian.
"I'm Brian Thompson." He said, shaking his hand.
"Well, it's nice to meet you, Brian." Nathan said, as they shook hands.
"Nice to meet you too, Nathan." Brian said, as he released his hand.
"So what's got you all down in the dumps, man?" Nathan said, giving Brian his attention.
"Well, it's a lot of things actually." Brian said, as he filled Nathan in on his life and how things had gotten to where they are now.
"Wow, sounds like you've had a rough time of it buddy." Nathan said, giving Brian a slight pat on the shoulder.
"Well, I guess it could be worse. I mean I do have a good job and I'm not broke. I have just bought a house, and I have a nice car." Brian said, not sure if he was trying to convince his new friend or himself.
"Yeah, well that is true. You gotta look at the bright side man." Nathan said, giving his best reassuring smile. "Maybe things didn't work out with your ex because there's somebody else that would make an even better partner for you."
Brian thought about what Nathan had said. "Boy if he only knew." He thought to himself. Brian had neglected to tell Nathan about the gay thing. Maybe he was right. Maybe things were going just as they were meant to go. After all it wasn't his choice to be gay. He had tried his best to make things work with his wife, but he knew he couldn't go on living a lie anymore. The sad thing was he truly loved her. However, he knew that he could never be the loving husband that she wanted. He wanted to be, but he just wasn't able to do it. Their lovemaking had become a chore to him. It wasn't that he didn't want to please his wife. It was merely that he couldn't. His heart longed for something that he, to this day, had never found.
"You're probably right man." Brian said, smiling at Nathan.
The two continued talking into the night. Brian felt a little better about things but kept drinking. Nathan was right. It had felt better just having someone to talk to about all of it.
As closing time neared, Brian began to prepare to head home. Nathan had just a few more things to do before he left for the night as well. As Brian stood to leave his legs were not quite as willing to go with him. He stumbled a bit and would have fallen but Nathan was quick to catch him, sitting him back on the stool.
"Whoa there buddy. I think you've had a little too much to drink tonight." Nathan said, with a slight laugh to his voice.
"Nonsense!" Brian said, with a slight slur to his voice. "I'm as capable as you."
"Yeah well one of us is able to stand and the other isn't." Nathan said, putting his hand on his friend's shoulder.
Brian began to laugh as he thought about what Nathan had just said. He was right of course. Brian had put away quite a few drinks tonight and he was really not himself.
"Seriously man, why don't you let me call you a cab or something." Nathan said, worried about his new friend.
"Oh don't be ridiculous Nathan my man. I'm fine." Brian said, as he attempted to stand once again.
Unfortunately his latest attempt went just as badly as his last one. He couldn't even find his footing to stand this time. Nathan caught him once more, as he was about to go down again.
"Listen man, if I can't call you a cab, why don't you let me drive you home." Nathan said in hopes of convincing his friend.
"Well, it dothes appear that I'm a lithle out of it." Brian said, having trouble putting the words together.
"Yeah it does buddy." "Look it's no trouble at all I'll just give you a ride, okay?" Nathan said, hoping his friend would accept.
"Well, okie dokie, Nathan." "If sure you're don't mind." Brian said, standing with the help of his newfound friend, but still having difficulties.
They stumbled out to the car as Nathan helped Brian inside. After making sure he was secured, Nathan went to the driver's side. As he got inside he noticed that Brian was not moving.
"Brian?" Nathan said, getting no reaction.
"Oh great!" Nathan exclaimed. "He's passed out on me. I don't even know where he lives."
Nathan knew that he couldn't just leave Brian in his car for the night and he had no idea where he lived. So, he decided to just take him home with him for the night and let him sleep it off there. Nathan drove through the night thinking about the events of the evening and the story that Brian had shared with him earlier. He really felt for Brian. He had been through a lot and he was still going to have to go through much more before his life was back together.
Nathan pulled into his drive and opened the garage door, pulling his car inside. As the door closed he got out and went around to the other side to help his friend.
"Brian are you awake buddy?" Nathan said, getting no response.
Brian was really out of it. Nathan had no choice but to physically remove Brian from his car and take him inside. Nathan wasn't very tall but he was very powerful. His thick chest and arms were deceptively strong. He managed to get Brian in the house and to his spare bedroom. He laid Brian down on the bed and removed his shoes. He removed Brian's shirt and jeans so that he would be able to sleep comfortably. Although, Nathan had a feeling that it didn't really matter. He felt that Brian would be out for a while. As he gathered Brian's clothes he folded them neatly and placed them on a nearby chair so that he would be able to find them when he woke up the next day. As he grabbed a blanket to put over him, Nathan glanced at Brian lying there on his bed in only his underwear. He couldn't help but notice what a nice body he had. He also couldn't help but notice a definite bulge in the pouch of his underwear. He stood there for a second longer before covering Brian with the blanket and walking out of the room. All the while he was thinking how beautiful Brian was and how he'd love to just stay in there with him. Yes, Nathan was gay, but he had no idea that Brian was as well. However, during Brian's story earlier in the evening Nathan couldn't help but notice some similarities between the two of them.
He went to bed that night as the visions of Brian sleeping in the next room haunted his mind and tortured his soul. He didn't understand his own situation. He was young, handsome, well built, successful but very much alone. Sure there were guys that had shared his bed but none that held his heart. Nathan couldn't understand why. Perhaps everyone felt that he was too young to be serious about anything but getting laid.
After a while of thinking about Brian and his own life, Nathan finally drifted off to sleep, wondering what tomorrow would hold for him and his new friend.
Somewhere in the night Brian managed to wake. He was dazed and confused by his surroundings. He was in a place he didn't recognize. He remembered very little about his evening, other than the handsome bartender that had pretty much taken care of him during the evening. As he began to stir he realized that he was naked except for his underwear.
"Wow, what happened to me last night?" He thought to himself. "I have got to get a grip on this." He stumbled out of bed after switching on the lamp beside him. After his eyes had adjusted to the brightness he was able to find his clothes. Slipping on his pants and shirt he opened the door. As he looked up and down the hallway he realized that he must be in somebody's house. The only question was to whom did the house belong? Brian didn't remember meeting anyone last night that alone going home with someone. He did manage to find the bathroom. After relieving himself he made his way out into the living room. He was completely lost. He had no idea where he was or with whom he had come home. He could only hope that he hadn't done something that he would live to regret. He sat there on the couch with his head in his hands, trying to remember. The last thing he remembered was spilling his guts to the bartender. He remembered feeling better afterwards but the rest of the night was a bit of a blur for him. Suddenly, he caught movement out of the corner of his eyes that startled him slightly. Looking up he saw a dark figure standing in the hallway. "I thought I heard you get up." The dark figure spoke as it walked towards him. As he got closer, Brian began to become a little uneasy. Slowly the figure emerged from the darkness, smiling at him.
"Nathan?" Brian asked, as if it was some sort of dream.
"Yeah man, it's me." Nathan said, taking a seat next to him on the couch.
"Man am I glad to see you." Brian said, giving Nathan a slight smile of his own.
All of a sudden a great calming came over Brian as he leaned back against the couch. He couldn't remember much but he did remember that Nathan had been a good friend to him last night. He felt at ease with him and very grateful for his help.
"How ya feeling?" Nathan asked, bringing his leg up on the couch as he shifted sideways.
"Well, honestly I was a little shaken when I woke up." Brian said, the honesty evident in his voice.
"I can understand that. You were a little out of it." Nathan said, with a bit of a laugh. "Sorry if I scared you."
"Oh that's quite alright. I'm just glad it's you." Brian said, shifting his position so that they could talk better.
"I had planned to take you home last night but you sort of passed out on me before I could get your address." Nathan said, filling Brian in on why he was there.
"Yeah, sorry about that." "I don't usually drink that much and I guess I over did it." Brian said, feeling a bit ashamed.
"That's okay man. You didn't do anything stupid or anything. You just passed out." Nathan said, giving Brian another big smile.
"Well, I sure do appreciate you taking care of me." Brian said, returning the smile. "Most guys wouldn't do that."
"Well, I'm not most guys." Nathan said, getting up from the couch.
"No, I guess you're not." Brian said, as his mind began to work again.
Nathan went to the kitchen and began making a pot of coffee. It was then that Brian noticed that Nathan was wearing only a pair of boxers and a T-shirt. His eyes traveled up the back of his legs to what appeared to be a round firm butt. He went even further as the noticed the broad back as it molded into strong shoulders. Brian was so caught up in this sight that he didn't even hear Nathan speaking to him.
"Brian?" Nathan said, shaking him out of his thoughts.
"What?" Brian said, with a jolt in his voice.
"You okay?" Nathan said, noticing the spaced out look on his friend's face.
"Um, yeah, I'm okay." Brian said, unconvincingly.
"Sure you are." "Are you having issues?" Nathan said in a funny voice. "Issues?" Brian asked, giving Nathan and strange look. "Never mind." Nathan said, with a laugh. "It's just something my best friend Carrie always says." "Anyway we'll get to all of this in a minute but first, would you like some coffee?" Nathan said, knowing something was wrong with his friend.
"Yeah, that would be great." Brian said, trying to pull himself together.
As the coffee began brewing, Nathan made his way back to the couch. He assumed his previous position and looked straight at Brian. As Brian looked at him it was as if Nathan was looking through him. It was as if he had gazed into his soul and found something that Brian was so longing to hide.
"What is it?" Brian asked, as he looked into Nathan's face.
"Why don't you tell me." Nathan said, putting the ball back into Brian's court, so to speak.
"I don't know what you're talking about, man." Brian said, beginning to become a little uneasy.
"Look something is obviously bothering you and I don't think it's all that stuff you told me last night. You left something out didn't you?" Nathan asked, giving Brian a questioning look.
"No, why would you say that?" Brian asked, shifting in his seat.
"Because I'm pretty good at reading people." Nathan said, watching his new friend's body language.
"Well, I guess you misread this one." Brian said, putting on his game face.
"Look Brian, you don't have to tell me, but I know you're hiding something." "Just so you know, it won't make any difference to me." Nathan said, as he got up to make the coffee.
As he watched Nathan walk over to the kitchen, Brian couldn't help but think what if he was right. What if it didn't make a difference to one person that he was gay. However, could he risk that? What if he told him and then it did matter? He had been hiding it for so long it was just so hard to say the words. At that moment, Brian decided why not? He had moved to this city to get away from everything and everyone so that he could be himself. He didn't really know Nathan all that well. If he turned against him would it really be that big of a loss? He had decided that he would surround himself with people that loved him for who and what he really is not what they wanted him to be, so why not just get it out in the open. After all he had to start somewhere.
"Okay, Nathan, I'll tell you but I don't think you're going to like it." Brian said, still not sure he was making the right decision.
"Fine, out with it." Nathan said, handing Brian his coffee.
"Okay I guess there is no good way to do this so here goes. I'm gay." Brian said, just sort of blurting it out.
Brian felt the coldness overcome him as he became light headed. He could feel his heartbeat changing. He waited for the words that he knew would inevitably come. As he waited he took another sip of his coffee. He continued waiting although all was silent. At that moment he looked over at Nathan, who was quietly sipping his coffee.
"Well?" Brian said, uneasy at Nathan's quietness.
"Well what?" Nathan said, looking at him.
"Did you hear what I said?" Brian asked, giving him an unbelieving look. "Yes, I heard you. You're gay so what?" Nathan said, putting his coffee mug on the table.
"You don't care?" Brian asked, not believing his ears.
"No I don't care. I told you I wouldn't." "Of course at the time I didn't know it was something this simple." Nathan said, adding to Brian's confusion.
"This simple?" "Are you kidding me with this?" "I've been struggling with this for years and you say it's simple?" Brian asked, his blood pressure raising.
"Oh wait, you mean this is the first time you've told someone?" Nathan asked, starting to get the final picture.
"Yes, you're the first person I've told." Brian said, trying to control his emotions.
"That makes better sense." Nathan said, leaning back against the couch.
"What do you mean?" Brian asked, not looking at him.
"I didn't know it was your first time telling someone. I'm sorry. I know how tough that can be for someone." Nathan said, catching Brian off guard.
"Yeah it was. Wait a minute." Brian said, as it dawned on him what Nathan had said. "You mean you're."
"Yes I am." Nathan said, giving Brian a slight smile.
"But you work in that straight bar. When I saw you I thought you were so handsome. I knew there had to be no way you could be gay." Brian said, unaware of what he had just let slip into the conversation.
"You think I'm handsome?" Nathan asked, taking Brian by surprise.
"Well, I, I mean, you're, that is to say." Brian struggled, trying to put a sentence together. His face turned a slight crimson as he cursed himself for revealing his attraction.
"I think you're handsome too." Nathan said, rescuing Brian from his own torment.
"You do?" Brian asked, as his head snapped in Nathan's direction.
"Yeah I do." Nathan said, giving him a smile as his own face flushed crimson.
"Thanks man." Brian said, his face still aglow from the comment.
"You're very welcome." Nathan said, taking another sip from his coffee mug.
"Feels good to finally say it out loud doesn't it?" Nathan asked, giving Brian a sympathetic look.
"Yes, it does." Brian said, sipping his own coffee but not looking at Nathan.
"There's one thing I don't understand." "If you've never told anyone, have you ever been with a guy?" Nathan asked.
"Well yeah, I've been with guys." Brian said, glancing in his direction. "I've just never told anyone that I wasn't planning on fooling around with or something."
"Oh, so you plan to fool around with me?" Nathan said, with a slight grin.
"What?" "Oh I didn't mean it that way, Nathan." "I'm sorry man." Brian said, trying to dig his way out of the mess he felt he had just created.
"Brian! Brian! It's okay man. I was kidding." Nathan said, lightly grabbing Brian's arm.
Brian turned slightly looking into Nathan's eyes. He could see the humor emulating from them.
"Oh man!" "That wasn't funny!" Brian said, turning away from Nathan.
"Oh come one man. I was just kidding." Nathan said, as Brian looked at him and smiled. "You dirty dog you!" Nathan exclaimed, as he made a lunge in Brian's direction.
"Watch out! You're gonna spill this hot coffee all over us!" Brian laughed, trying to push Nathan away from him.
The two wrestled around trying to get the better of one another. They laughed at the comments each thankful for the break in the tension. Brian managed to break away from Nathan as he made a run for it. He ran around the coffee table laughing and trying to catch his breath. As their game of cat and mouse continued Nathan made one final lunge in Brian's direction. They both fell to the floor laughing and trying to get the upper hand. Nathan ended up on top of him staring down between shortness of breath and laughter.
Brian looked up into Nathan's eyes as their laughing began to die down. Each of them stared into the other's eyes. It was as if something had stilled time. Somehow Brian felt himself being pulled into those green pools as if transported to another place. Nathan felt confused as he stared into the magical blue oceans before him. He was taken to another dimension where nothing else mattered except those beautiful blue orbs below him. It was as if an unseen force had taken control of them. They stared deeply into each other as the distance between them decreased inch by inch. Before either of them knew what was happening, Nathan's lips slightly touched Brian's. Brian inhaled deeply as he felt Nathan make contact. Nathan lowered himself more until his lips were in full contact with Brian's. Ever so gently he kissed him unsure if he was making the right decision. He didn't have to wait long: as he felt Brian respond to the kiss. In a matter of seconds they lay in the floor their lips entwined in a dance of many emotions. Their arms wrapped around each other, as they kissed with a force neither of them had known for years. An unquenchable fire engulfed them as they struggled against their physical desire and what they felt was the right thing to do.
"We probably shouldn't do this." Nathan said, trying to tear himself away.
"You're right." "We should stop." Brian said, looking once again into Nathan's eyes.
As hard as they tried neither of them could deny what they were feeling. Their emotions took them again. Their lips became engaged in a production of lust and desire. In a matter of minutes they found themselves in Nathan's bedroom naked and exploring each other in a way that each of them had longed to for quite a while.
They kissed and touched each other enjoying each other. Nathan kissed Brian's neck and chest working his way down to his strong abdomen. He inhaled his scent. It was as enchanting as those beautiful blue eyes he had stared into earlier. Nathan found himself running his fingers through the dark thick pubic hair in front of him as he realized what he was about to do. He looked up at Brian and smiled as he took Brian's hard cock in his hand, gently stroking him.
Brian inhaled deeply through his teeth as he felt Nathan's lips surround his manhood.
"Oh God, that feels so good!" Brian said, as he looked down at his lover. "Take me baby." He said, almost in a whisper.
Nathan began ever so gently to make love to Brian's cock as he licked and sucked him, driving him almost to madness. Just when Brian felt he could take no more Nathan released him working his way back up his body with kisses until he reached his lips once again. Their lips and tongues once again wrestled with each other increasing their hunger for one another. Without warning Brian turned sliding Nathan off of him. Once he was on top of him, Brian began to kiss and work his way down Nathan's body just as he had done to him. He licked and sucked Nathan's nipples and played with the hair on his chest. Nathan was covered in a nice thick blanket of hair. Brian found that to be quite a turn on indeed. He continued to kiss and touch him as he worked his way down to the prize that had been awaiting him.
Nathan's head pushed back into the pillow as he felt his hardness being taken inch by glorious inch into Brian's hot mouth. He reached above him and grabbed the headboard gripping it tightly as he felt Brian slide up and down the length of his cock. He could feel Brian's tongue as it worked him over awakening electrical senses in him that expanded throughout his entire body.
Brian slipped him out of his mouth and looked up at him smiling as he stroked his hard cock with his hand.
"Baby I want you inside me." Brian said, giving Nathan a serious look.
Nathan didn't respond with words. He pulled Brian to him giving him one more passionate kiss as he made preparations to give him what he wanted. Once he was ready, he positioned himself between Brian's legs. He placed the head of his hard cock at Brian's hole. With a gentle push he broke through the ring of muscle. Brian took a quick short breath as he felt Nathan's head enter him.
"Are you okay, baby?" Nathan asked, fearing that he had hurt him.
"Yeah, just go slow." Brian said, as he tried to adjust to the thickness inside him.
Before long Brian began to move his hips back and forth. Nathan took this as a sign to continue. He slowly slid himself inside. He kept his eyes on Brian's as he sunk himself deeper and deeper. He could feel the tightness as his hard cock was surrounded by hot flesh. Once he had filled Brian, he relaxed for a moment, giving him time to adjust once again.
In a matter of minutes Nathan was sliding in and out of him. Brian was in complete and total ecstasy. He could feel every inch of Nathan as he withdrew and then refilled him. Upon each entry Nathan hit that magic button within Brian causing him to feel alive in every area of his being. Nathan became more aggressive in his thrusts and his speed increased. Before long he was breathing hard and pounding Brian's ass for all he was worth.
"Oh god Brian. I can't hold out much longer baby." Nathan said, as flesh slammed against flesh.
"Do it baby!" Brian exclaimed, taking Nathan's head in his hands and looking deep into his eyes.
"Oh, Oh, Oh, here it comes!" "Ahhhhhh!" Nathan all but screamed as he unloaded inside of Brian.
His body tensed and convulsed as he made one final plunge into Brian. Brian could feel Nathan's hardness as it twitched and pulsed inside of him. Nathan collapsed on top of him breathing hard as he tried to recover from his orgasm.
"Man that was so amazing." Nathan said, kissing Brian's neck and running his fingers through his hair.
"Baby, you were so amazing." Brian said, running his hands up and down Nathan's back.
They lay there for a few minutes catching their breath. As he moved Nathan could feel Brian's hardness under him.
"Hmm, it feels like somebody is ready to get off now." Nathan said, sliding his hand down and grabbing Brian's stiff dick. He tightened his grip as a sigh escaped Brian's lips.
Before Brian could say much of anything, Nathan had already moved and engulfed his entire cock.
"Oh yeah!" Brian exclaimed, placing his hand on the back of Nathan's head.
"That's it baby. Just like that." Brian said, encouraging his lover.
Nathan worked him over as he slid his hot mouth up and down the hardness before him. His tongue bathed Brian's hard tool in pleasure with each stroke. Before long Brian felt that stirring in his groin.
"Oh man, I'm cumming!" Brian exclaimed, trying to remove Nathan's lips from his cock.
Nathan grabbed Brian's hips and pulled himself down completely on the hard cock embedded inside his throat.
"Oh man!" "Oh God can't hold back!" Brian yelled.
Nathan felt the first shot hit his throat. Time after time he felt the hot warm juices of his newfound lover flow into him.
Brian's body shook in pleasure as his orgasm slowly subsided. He could not believe that Nathan had just taken him completely.
Nathan climbed up beside him smiling at him. Brian pulled his face towards him kissing him fully on the lips.
"I'm really glad you brought me home tonight." Brian said, slowly stroking Nathan's face.
"So am I." Nathan said, kissing him again.
They laid together talking in the darkness. They were so comfortable in each other's arms. Nathan rested his head on Brian's chest. In a matter of moments Brian's heartbeat sang him to sleep.
