Blue, Birch and Gervais trek through immigration, baggage claim and customs the lines are long with several international flights arriving so they don’t wait for Bea and Grant. In arrivals they find a seat and wait.
Robin squeezes Blue’s hand and smiles. Bea and Grant take ages to come through and the guys are getting antsy as the volume of passengers starts to thin. A harassed looking Bea finally appears with Grant trailing behind with only his hand luggage.
“They lost my fucking bag.” Grant fumes.
Blue tries to suppress a giggle.
“They have stores here you’ll be fine.” Blue says getting up and pulling on his backpack.
“Did they say how long it will be?” Robin asks with a little more sympathy.
“2 days.” Grant sighs.
“Well that’s no big deal. We are in the nice hotel for 3 days anyway. It won’t hold us back.” Birch says. Robin’s mom and Clara have booked them a few nights in a nice hotel so they can get over jetlag in comfort before they move on to hostels and more modest places.
“Let’s go.” Bea says.
Blue and Bea start to walk towards the train station.
“Where are you going?” Grant asks.
“To get the train, it goes straight to our hotel.” Blue says.
“We can get a cab.” Grant says.
“We can get the train.” Bea says, she like Blue had planned the travel to the hotel and is looking forward to it.
“Yeah we’d need 2 cabs for all of us and our bags.” Birch says.
“You guys are insane we were just on the plane for hours.” Grant says stomping along behind them.
Blue takes Bea’s bag from her and she smiles and shakes her head. But is grateful as she juggles her hand luggage and duty free bag.
Blue quickly buys tickets for them all and ushers them to the platform. Grant is still grumbling but the others are excited.
“How was the flight back there?” Blue asks Bea with a grin he’s decided to make an effort to make the trip more tolerable for all. He would feel awful if Bea had a bad time. He knows that at some point they have to repair things.
“It was actually amazing. The food was good. I drank a lot which helped. I know you had fancier seats but it wasn’t bad at all, better than any other flight I’ve had.” Bea says.
“I bet we’d have been okay back there too. But it was nice to do things in real style for once. Momma isn’t usually one for wasting money or spoiling me.” Blue says.
“She bought you two houses.” Bea laughs.
“Those are not wasting money and they have strings. I don’t think housing me is spoiling me.” Blue says.
“No but its pretty awesome of her. This whole trip is a dream really.” Bea admits.
“Will you be okay with Robin?” Blue asks.
“Yeah, well I hope so.” Bea says.
They get on the train, its midmorning and not busy so they have enough room to sit and stash their bags. Blue needs to pinch himself that he’s actually here. He grins at Robin whose eyes are sparkling too and Birch smiles at the pair feeling their energy.
“Shower then explore? Get some air?” Birch asks as they get close to their stop.
“Sounds good. I can’t wait to brush my teeth properly.” Bea says.
They get out the station walk a few steps and gawp every step to their hotel. Even Grant stops grumbling. The weather is beautiful. Blue had been prepared for it to be chilly but its lovely, the sky is blue and they are all feeling energized.
Blue, Robin and Bea check in and then it gets awkward again.
“Three guys in one room and 1 in the other isn’t right.” Grant says.
“Well neither of us can go in with Blue and it’s Robin’s room.” Birch says.
“And I don’t trust you to not run up a mini bar bill.” Robin says matter of factly.
Blue is sad he’s quite like to share with Robin.
“I can afford it.” Grant says.
“Right you could pay me back but the charges would go on my card and I’d get a grilling from my mom.” Robin says.
“You can always share with Bea.” Blue teases.
“No little bro. I am going to enjoy my last chance to walk around naked before we move into mass dorms. You could share with your ex.” Bea grins.
“Yeah we might as well if its not awkward. Silly to have you 3 share one shower.” Blue sighs unhappy but knowing it’s the right thing.
“No I’ll call the front desk and ask them to remove the mini bar and refuse all charges. I want to share with Blue.” Robin says not wanting to let Blue down right now.
Birch feels a little down at sharing with Grant but as he’s getting a free hotel room for 3 nights he won’t complain.
Blue goes into his room, pulls back the drapes and gasps at the view of the opera house. He sits down on the bed and just stares. Robin knocks a few minutes later and sits with Blue starring.
They shower together because it feels right. Scrubbing each other and washing the others hair, small acts of intimacy to get them back on track. As they rinse off Blue grabs Robin is a bear hug and they stand together for a minute and feel their friendship heal.
They meet up with the others an hour later feeling fresher and ready to go. They pick up some energy drinks from a kiosk and start to explore the harbor area. They walk up to the botanical gardens, Grant and Birch are both taking pictures of everything they want to paint or draw, which is everything.
Blue is mesmerized by all the plants and birds. Robin and Bea walk together behind him and smile at his joy.
“You just need to apologize and he’ll be fine with you. Blue is very easy to win back. It gets harder each time but he’s a softie and he loves you and wants to be friends.” Robin says.
“Do you apologize to your sisters after calling them names in the heat of the moment? Or is it all forgotten the next day because they’ve done something just as bad. Blue’s silent treatment is so juvenile and controlling.” Bea says.
“If my sisters were as messed up as Blue was over winter break I would do whatever I could to get them back on track. And yes we do say sorry, sometimes as our mom is making us but usually because we feel bad. Thing is I would never, ever be so awful to my siblings.” Robin says.
“You don’t know that. If some guy turned up on your doorstep claiming to be your father’s son you might not be so nice.” Bea says.
“But that didn’t happen to you. It happened to Blue. Nothing came out of nowhere for you and yet you expect Blue to be able to deal with it without having one conversation face to face with his mother. He was the one of the three of you given away, parental rights terminated. Have you any idea what that means to him? Then you go and try and turn the one parent he has against him. You monopolized her and pushed him out of his home. That is not how families behave. Be like a sister if you want to be treated like one. Stop breaking his heart and blaming him for having one.” Robin says and runs to catch up with Blue leaving Bea stunned.
“It’s so pretty.” Blue says slipping his hand into Robin’s.
“It is. Feels good to breathe real air after the plane.” Robin says.
“I wish I was here with a boyfriend. I want to kiss someone under these trees. I’m feeling all romantic.” Blue grins.
“You softy.” Robin says hugging his friend.
“I’m happy to be here and I’m really glad we’re friends again but I just feel something is missing. I’ll be okay once I’m off exploring and learning about wine.” Blue says.
“I hear you. Travelling with friends is fun but it’s nice to finish the day physically with the one you love.” Robin says.
“Yeah I miss being in love and I’m kind of scared that I’ve fallen back in love with Gervais and heading for another round of pain because he isn’t ready, and is going to reject me.” Blue says quietly not sure he’s ready to admit it.
“Look we’re here and we can have some wild flings and we can drink to forget our issues. You are not falling for Gervais, he is filling in the space in your life as he always does. You cannot go through it with him again. I know I was encouraging earlier but I had a flash of you last summer and you were so lost and broken. I should never have let him near you again. None of us should have stayed friends with him it was insane. If we had cut him off you would be long over him by now. We let you down.” Robin says.
“Nah you didn’t. We’d have all felt guilty if he was isolated and alone.” Blue says.
Spence has been coaching every day and is exhausted. He is absolutely loving it. Every day is different and he is learning so much by putting in full days compared to just evenings. Ocean is improving like crazy. There are three boys in his age group who moved from rec to team at the same time and have quietly surpassed the boys who were already in the squad. It is causing a few titters amongst the gym parents but Spence ignores it.
He chats with Cheryl as she picks Ocean up. Ocean wants to jump up on Spence and be held but he knows that he can’t at gym class so he settles for holding Spence’s hand.
“One more week and then you’re off to the retreat?” Spence asks.
“Yes. Willow said you would send his conditioning exercises through so he doesn’t lose too much ground.” Cheryl says feeling guilty but in real need of her annual get away.
“Yes of course. If he’s doing his yoga that will help. Most the guys will be taking a few weeks off. Don’t sweat it.” Spence says.
“Oh I do. I’m the non-competitive mom and now I have a sporty kid who wants to be the best and it is disorientating. It’s like his rebellion much earlier than I anticipated.” Cheryl grins and Spence knows she’s joking but worried.
“He’s good. He’s fearless, flexible and has naturally good form. He’s ahead of others his age despite his late start. A few weeks with his mom enjoying the outdoors won’t end his career.” Spence says.
“Career. He’s my baby.” Cheryl laughs.
“Just breathe.” Spence laughs and Cheryl lets out a huge sigh and takes Ocean home.
Spence stops and talks to some other parents and answers questions the best he can.
Once they are gone he goes out on the floor to stretch himself. He’s started to do his old cool down routine at the end of the day to ease the tension in his shoulders and help him ache less in the morning.
“Could you give me a hand?” An older male gymnast asks. Several who have left for college are back for the summer to train. They coach at the camps and train early and late.
“Sure. It’s Will right?” Spence asks.
“Yeah, you’re Spence wrestler turned coach.” Will says with a grin.
“That’s me. Here shall I pull your arms?” Spence asks kneeling on the guys back.
“Yeah that’s it.” Will grimaces.
“You have an amazing body.” Spence says standing up.
“Hell of a lot of work.” Will says, he is a typical gymnast build, small and compact with hige shoulders and the deepest v cut Spence has ever seen. It’s a hot day and he’s trainng in just a small pair of shorts.
“It’s art. You guys all amaze me.” Spence says.
“You’re a good coach. I can see the boy’s team is improving and you’ve really helped with the fitness of the girls and they all trust you spotting them. You need some more technical knowledge but for a non gymnast you’re doing great from what I can see.” Will says.
“Thanks. I love it. My best friend did cheer in high school and I’d watch him practice sometimes so I’d seen tumbling coached but not with the difficulty or precision of you guys. All the coaches here know so much and I’m learning like crazy.” Spence says.
“It’s a great gym. I hear you work a few clubs.” Will says.
“Yeah during semester I had to as I could only coach the lower levels so did all the sessions I could get wherever I could. It’s been great learning a lot of different styles.” Spence says.
“Yeah when I first started going to national training camps I got exposed to different coaches and it blew my mind. Then at college everyone brings something different and the coaches have different goals to being in club.” Will says.
“I’d love to coach a college team one day.” Spence says.
“You will. You’re here coaching the little ones day in day out. That is commitment.” Will says.
Spence stays to watch Will train and his coach calls Spence over to explain some of his drills and asks for some assistance spotting or filming. Spence learns so much and goes home on a real high.
Will is so cute Spence thinks as he walks through the door feeling horny. He tries to push that thought away. Will has a girlfriend. Even if he were gay it would be inappropriate, they might be the same age but still he is a gymnast and I am a coach Spence tells himself.
DeShawn like Spence has had a long day and is just having a quick drink before his shower.
“You look how I feel.” DeShawn says.
“Sweaty and exhausted.” Spence grins.
“Smells like a locker room in here.” Magnus says arriving back from work.
“Sorry I know I’m ripe. Too tired to shower yet.” Spence says.
“It’s fucking hot. I love it.” Magnus groans. He loves he can be open about what he loves with these two. He and DeShawn are dating and it is going well, really well and DeShawn has been encouraging him to voice his fantasies. Two sweaty, manly smelling men are near the top of his list.
“I think my boy is asking for us to fuck him before we shower.” DeShawn says. Spence’s cock perks up, his horn is never far away.
Magnus grins and kisses DeShawn hard and then buries his face in DeShawn’s pit groaning at the aroma.
“Spence go get undressed, ass up. Magnus go burry your face in that sweaty ass.” DeShawn says knowing Magnus will love it.
“Yes baby.” Magnus says following Spence quickly.
DeShawn stands in the doorway and watches, Spence naked his skin glistening, his face pressed to the bed suppressing his moans. Magnus in his suit, his ass looking perfect in the wool slacks.
DeShawn undresses and rubs his cock. He fucking loves fucking Spence. He’s with Magnus, but he’ll never says no to some action with his buddy too. He want’s to get Magnus thick cock inside him tonight.
DeShawn slaps Magnus ass a couple of times.
“My turn.” DeShawn says.
Magnus moves to suck DeShawn’s cock and is met with a slap in the face.
“My ass. Spence get here you need a face fucking.” DeShawn says.
Magnus eagerly gets to work and Spence too. Both boys happily preparing DeShawn to be the sandwich filling.
Magnus breathes everything in. He loves how DeShawn smells different to Spence. How they both taste. He loves everything right now. He leaves his dick zipped up as he knows that DeShawn loves it that way and he is making one sticky mess.
“You ready to fuck me?” DeShawn asks.
Magnus nods but doesn’t move his mouth.
DeShawn grabs Spence under his armpits and throws him on the bed. Spence can’t help but grin he loves that DeShawn can throw his about.
“Leg’s up.” DeShawn says and pushes deep in. Spence moans gently.
DeShawn directs Magnus to take his pants off and leave his shirt and tie on. DeShawn loves the Magnus in his work outfits and partially out of them.
“Fuck me baby.” DeShawn says.
Magnus is nervous for a second and then goes for it, the scent of sweat in the room is such a turn on for Magnus that he stops worrying and enjoys himself. The trio fuck and fuck and fuck.
Andy and Chris have had a long day gardening. Andy was impressed with himself being the leader and directing Chris and impressed that Chris has a work ethic. Andy wonders if he has seriously misjudged the guy. He hasn’t complained about anything since being here from chores to food to the limited social life.
Andy is lying on his bed wrapped in his towel, his fan blasting on his damp skin trying to keep cool when Chris appears in the doorway with a towel round his waist which is tented.
“We’re going to have to help each other out up here.” Chris says.
Andy looks up at him and groans a little. He’s Chris, the uber dick who fucked his friends over. He’s fucking hot and Andy knows he has a big dick and will look awesome bouncing on his cock.
“It’s just sex right?” Andy asks.
