Back at the marina, we
cleaned up the boat, refueled and stocked it for two half-day fishing trips
the next day. When we finished, Antwon and Sharky headed home and Wolf and I
headed for La Casa rejoining his friends. Antwon and Sharky said they could
handle the fishing trips very well so Wolf and I could have the day off.
Wasn’t sure what we would do afterward, but I was going to La Casa with Wolf
When we arrived at La Casa,
I was introduced to Sandy who had finally arrived. In a way, Sandy and
Michael reminded me of Wolf and myself. Michael moved slowly, carefully,
thoughtfully. Sandy had the energy of a puppy and was just about as aimless.
Well, Wolf was energetic, but certainly not aimless. He knew what he wanted
and went after it, like getting to stay over in Key West with me although he
still didn’t have an answer from his parents.
Before dinner, Wolf had told
Mrs. Crandall that Antwon and Sharky didn’t need us tomorrow and asked about
my staying over. She had responded, “Of course. Derek is always welcome at
La Casa.” When he told me, I was ecstatic!
After dinner, Mrs. Metzer
was in charge of making arrangements for the following day’s activities.
Justin and Michael said they’d like to go sailing which meant Sandy would as
well. I glanced at Wolf and then said, “If there’s room, I’d love to go. I
have never been sailing.”
“I guess that means Wolf has
a new and sudden interest in sailing,” Marc laughed. “Justin, think you and
I could handle the catamaran? It would carry six easily.”
“Don’t know why not,” Justin
answered and that was settled.
The sail turned out to be a
great adventure. Since we were all males, at one point we decided to work on
an overall tan. No package was a cause for embarrassment, but Wolf and Sandy
were number one and two -- the two smallest guys packed the biggest guns.
There was a sudden squall which scared hell out of us, especially Michael
who almost slid off the deck into the sea, but it was a great day.
As we were returning from
sailing, we were all commanded to get to the library on the double and when
we arrived found all hell had broken loose because Michael had been outed at
a church revival in North Carolina.********
I was amazed as the North
Carolina troop set to work to rescue Michael from being sent to a hellhole
in Alabama to be changed from gay to straight. I was also scared shitless
when I realized my Wolf, in his female persona, was a major part of the
rescue operation and could be in danger, but all turned out okay.
Wolf’s parents finally gave
him permission to spend the next three weeks with me. Marc and Justin really
were like fathers to Wolf as Sharky and Antwon were to me. The four were
afraid we were moving too fast as both of us were pretty inexperienced with
this love and sex thing -- we both had some sexual experience, I more than
Wolf, but tossing in the love factor made it a more explosive mixture, Marc
observed. He and Justin, as had Sharky and Antwon, insisted we not live
together. Of course, we were free to choose otherwise, but we agreed: Wolf
would be living with Antwon and Sharky at La Casa and I would be in my
apartment. They did say they expected sleepovers.
One afternoon, after we got
back from Dry Tortugas, we met the others for tea and to see the exhibition
they had been working on. Before going to see the exhibition, Wolf and I
bought each other a medallion at a place known for them, and we had dinner
After a week in Florida, the
Clan left on Monday, Michael and Sandy went to a hunting cabin on the estate
to hide Michael and for a honeymoon. Wolf and I spent the afternoon on the
boat helping with a half-day fishing trip.
We got back, took care of
the boat and Antwon looked at the bookings for the next couple of days. We
had two half-day fishing trips Tuesday, and a day-long cruise Wednesday.
Antwon said since we had an overnight to Dry Tortugas Thursday, he and
Antwon would be staying aboard the boat Wednesday night and suggested Wolf
stay with me. “Wolf, you’ll need to pack for the trip tonight when we get
home as we’ll not be going to the cottage tomorrow.” Wolf and I didn’t even
bother to pretend we weren’t excited. We all had dinner, then I went to my
apartment and the three left for the cottage.
The morning fishing trip
went well but, sad to say, the same was not true of the afternoon one. The
four fishermen had a mostly liquid lunch, I suspect, and were not going
light on the booze on the boat. Antwon warned them that should they become
drunk, we would go in. “We will not be responsible for some drunk falling
overboard,” he said. “You were told when you signed the contract you’d be
brought ashore if you got drunk.”
The drinking did not stop.
One guy was especially obnoxious and kept making a pass at Wolf. So long as
it was simply words and gestures, we all chose to ignore it beyond Wolf
telling him he did not appreciate his remarks. The remarks and gestures did
not stop and then the touching started. I was getting steamed, Antwon was
getting pissed, Sharky’s demeanor was turning to icy rage and Wolf seemed
indifferent except to tell the guy to stop touching him. Wolf avoided the
guy as much as possible. When the fellow walked up behind Wolf and grabbed
his ass. Wolf turned to him and said, “I told you to keep your hands off.
Apparently, you do not understand English. Let me put it to you this way,
you touch me in an inappropriate manner again and I will floor you.”
“Big talk from a puny little
“I suggest you pay
attention, sir. The puny little black boy can do exactly what he said,”
“Just another black boy
bragging,” the man said and reached out and grabbed Wolf’s cock and balls.
What happened next was so fast I didn’t see it. In the blink of an eye, the
man who’d grabbed Wolf’s junk was writhing on the deck, clutching his own.
“This black boy does not
brag,” Wolf said and turned and walked off. Sharky had seen the whole
episode as well. As soon as the man grabbed Wolf’s manhood, Sharky headed
for the pilot house and had the boat underway by the time Wolf walked away.
Antwon, Wolf and I collected
the fishing gear, taking it from men who had been fishing and were stowing
it when one of the men, drunk, started arguing with Sharky because the trip
had been cut short. Sharky reminded him that he, and most of the others, had
not stopped drinking when they were drunk and finally one of them had
sexually assaulted a crew member. “You will be lucky if you are not arrested
for public drunkenness and Wolf doesn’t charge one of your group with
assault.” What Sharky did not add was that he had alerted the authorities
about possible DUIs if anyone on the boat got in a car after we landed.
Since we got in early, the
boat was cleaned and provisioned long before it would have been. Antwon had
ridden his motorcycle in and Sharky and Wolf had their jeep. When we had
everything ready for the next day’s excursion, Sharky and Antwon hopped on
the motorcycle and headed for their cottage. “Dinner will be at 7:30,”
Antwon said just before they sped away. It was 5:30 and the trip to La Casa
took forty-five minutes. We had an hour and a quarter to make love. We used
Wednesday we had an
excursion among the Florida Keys -- Antwon called it meandering among the
mangroves, but I found it very interesting. The passengers were a group of
retired school teachers who were interested in the habitat and both Antwon
and Sharky were very knowledgeable about it. The caterer had done an
excellent job with lunch. The day with the teachers ended with a sunset
cruise and, again, excellent food. By dinnertime, the passengers had adopted
the four of us and had us eat with them after we had the meal laid out.
As we were eating, one of
the ladies said, “As handsome as the four of you are, you must have girls
all over you. You all have girlfriends?”
I looked at Antwon in panic.
I had never expected such a question and ‘I don’t believe that is any of
your business’, wouldn’t be an acceptable response.
“Afraid not, Ma’am. See,
Antwon is my husband and Wolf and Derek are engaged,” Sharky said as though
it were an everyday response.
“Well, you certainly had me
fooled,” the lady laughed. “Best wishes to all of you.” I breathed again.
We were late getting the
boat ready for the next day’s excursion and when we had finally finished,
Wolf and I headed for the apartment. As we were leaving, Antwon said,
“Remember, we are going to be underway at 6:00, so don’t stay up all night.
Get some sleep,” and laughed.
We walked to the apartment,
I packed my bag for the next two days and showered and it was only 8:00 when
we embraced in the bedroom. We were both hot and hard as we kissed and our
kisses had just got hotter when I picked Wolf up and carried him to the bed.
I’ve already said Wolf moved like a cat and he could be as quick as one
which he proved as soon as I lay down. Before I knew what had happened, he
was between my legs, my cock engulfed in his hot, wet mouth. “Beautiful Boy,
I don’t think that’s slow and easy!”
He looked up at me with
those big green eyes and grinned. Without speaking, he started kissing his
way up my body, stopping to nip at one nipple, then the other. Finally, he
covered my mouth with his, traced my lips with his tongue which then
demanded entry. Once his tongue was in my mouth, it started exploring. I had
never been as hot in my whole life. Finally he broke the kiss and said,
“Derek, you and Levi sucked each other’s dick for almost a semester. For a
year or so, a fellow involved in drama and I sucked each other every chance
we got. So, the two of us have exchanged blowjobs with a good friend and a
casual acquaintance, but we are holding back with someone we are probably in
love with. Where’s the logic in that?”
I had to admit it sounded
more than a bit foolish. “But the idea was that we not let sex interfere
with getting to know each other.”
“Derek, I want to get to
know you; I want make love to you where I can see your face.” He kissed my
neck and shoulders, nibbled at my ears before covering a nipple with his hot
mouth. He sucked it, then the other one until both were hard and pointed. He
buried his face in an armpit, then gave it a tongue bath before continuing
kissing a trail toward his goal. He made a stop to stick his tongue into my
bellybutton, then moved down and took first one, then the other of my balls
into his mouth. After bathing my balls, he focused on my cock, licking the
shaft, swirling the head with his tongue. Finally, he engulfed my cock with
his hot mouth, and looking into my eyes, his tongue and gentle sucking had
me in paradise.
Unfortunately, paradise was
short-lived as I soon started blasting into his willing mouth. Wolf’s eyes
were sparkling as he bathed my cock with his tongue, cleaning up any cum
left on it. Realizing I was so sensitive any further attention to my
still-hard member was painful, he scooted up and started kissing me. I could
taste the remains of his making love to me when my tongue probed his mouth.
“Wolf Lancaster, where in
the hell did you learn to suck cock like that?”
“I like very much, but I
find it hard to believe you’ve only sucked a guy off a few times. How did
you learn how?”
“First, you have been
taken by a very smart boy. Second, don’t say porn can’t be educational.
Third, bananas aren’t just for breakfast,” he laughed.
“You’re shitting me.”
“Gospel truth. I decided I
couldn’t learn to fuck by watching porn, but with the help of a banana, I
could learn to suck cock.”
“You learned well,
Beautiful One. You learned well. I’m almost afraid to return the favor now,”
knowing full well Levi had done a damn good job teaching me to suck cock.
“You do what you do and
I’ll love it. It may not just be the thought that counts, but the thought is
a major part of love-making, so just think about loving me. That’s what I
do, not just when we are having sex, but every time I see or think about
I did return the favor and
got nothing but moans and groans of delight from Wolf.
Later, Wolf said, “Derek,
how about we do some permutations of sixty-nine!”
We laughed and giggled as we
played before finally settling down in a sixty-nine to make love to our --
dare I use the word? -- lover’s cock. Levi had taught me well, so it was no
surprise that I was better at making love to Wolf’s cock that he was to mine
but, man, he was not bad. Wolf finally moaned and said around my dick, “I’m
there!” and started filling my mouth with sweet-tasting cum. The amount of
cum matched the sizable dick from which it poured. Once I swallowed the last
of his man’s juice, I focused on the pleasure he was giving me and shortly
after he had filled my mouth, I warned him that I was cumming. He locked his
lips around my shaft and drank the nectar I gave him.
We lay in the afterglow,
arms about each other, eyes locked. Wolf slowly moved to me, kissed me with
the gentlest kiss and said, “Derek, I love you.” He kissed me again, softly.
“I love you, too, Wolf.” We
drifted off to sleep, wrapped in each other’s arms only to awaken a couple
hours later. Still wrapped in our lover’s arms, our eyes met and smiles
covered our faces. Seconds later our tongues were engaged in a lovers’ duel
where losers were also winners. We were both very hard as we started
grinding our cocks together. “Hang on, Wolf,” I said as I stopped moving. I
reached into the nightstand and retrieved the Gun Oil and spread lubricant
on my lover’s stomach, lubed both our cocks extremely well and spread lube
on my stomach. I pulled Wolf’s body atop mine and he knew immediately what
was needed and started sliding up and down, rubbing our cocks between our
stomachs. Although we had each had a wonderful climax only a couple hours
earlier, it wasn’t long before I felt hot cum on my belly as Wolf’s man’s
seed erupted between us; his hot seed was a trigger for my own eruption. Our
bodies went into spasms as we pumped hot cum between us. We didn’t drift off
to sleep this time as the hot cum became a cold, clammy mess. Instead, we
cleaned up and went back to bed, exchanged a goodnight kiss and wrapped in
arms and legs, for the second time that night we professed our love, and
We hadn’t paid a lot of
attention to the suggestion we get a lot of sleep, but didn’t object when
the alarm went off at 4:30 since we were still aglow from our love-making.
We popped out of bed, brushed our teeth, embraced and truly began the day
with a kiss. Neither of us could keep the smile off his face.
We were at the boat before
5:00, stowed our bags and joined Sharky and Antwon for the shipboard
breakfast Antwon prepared. “If I didn’t know otherwise, I’d say you two are
basking in the afterglow of having been laid last night,” Sharky said.
“I guess that would depend
on your definition of being laid,” Wolf said. “See, I met a guy several
years ago at the state drama festival and due to circumstances beyond his
control, he was without a room and stayed with me. He loved sucking cock.
Over the next year or so, we got together from time to time and he sucked my
cock. The last couple times we were together, I returned the favor. Derek,
on the other hand, had a guy living with him and they exchanged cock-sucking
duties whenever they liked. Now Derek and I have a very special feeling for
each other, deeper than either of us had for the drama guy or housemate, yet
we are supposed to do nothing more than help each other out with a hand job.
Now, I ask you, does that stack up logically? Of course not! Having realized
the foolishness of it all, I suggested we explore possibilities with special
attention to the permutations of sixty-nine and we found several, probably
not all, and I’m sure we will be working on those again.” Antwon and Sharky
were laughing like fools by the time Wolf had finished.
“That’s a hell of a long
speech to say, ‘We’re adults and we decided you two were fools to think that
two hot guys wouldn’t get it on sleeping together naked,’” Sharky said. “It
does explain the bright eyes and bushy tails you two are sporting. Just be
“Sharky, Antwon, Wolf said
the L word last night,” I responded and somewhat sheepishly added, “I did
“Well, you’re two great
guys. I hope you have a long, loving life together,” Antwon said.
Over the next two and a half
weeks, I had a chance to see gracious and charming people, assholes and
bigots, in other words, a cross-section of middle and upper income people.
Wolf and I also talked a lot, made love a lot and got to know each other.
Our love grew and grew.
Finally it was the night
before Wolf and I were to go home. Mrs. Crandall invited us to La Casa for a
farewell dinner and we would stay over. Antwon and Sharky had kept the
morning free so they could have breakfast with us and take us to the
airport. Mrs. Crandall had arranged for Wolf to fly to Norfolk with me, then
spend a couple nights before I drove him to Elizabethton. I was anxious for
Auntie and my friends to meet Wolf, but I was not exactly looking forward to
meeting Wolf’s parents. They were of a social bracket several notches above
mine and that was as important, if not more important, among some
African-Americans as it was for certain groups of whites.
When we sat down at dinner
with Mrs. Crandall and Mrs. Metzer, Mrs. Crandall said, “Wolf, Derek, I
think the two young men heading back north are very different from the two
young men who arrived from there. I’m sure spending time with Antwon and
Sharky accounts for some of that, but maybe only a small part. Would I be
amiss if I said I think the two young men who came down have been
transformed into two young men in love?”
“Not amiss at all, Mrs.
Crandall,” Wolf said.
“Not at all,” I added.
“I wish you much happiness,”
she said. She asked a hundred questions about our time in Florida and about
what we would be doing when we got back. She knew about my responsibility to
Auntie, so I said, “Well, I’ll be back in time to do the second session of
summer school and will take a couple of classes. With my AP credit, I’ll be
a junior second semester if I do. Jeremy will be moving into his room at
Levi’s house as soon as the first session of summer school is over. I’m
going to be lonely in my place by myself. Wolf and I are trying to figure
out some way for him to be at OCU after the first semester, but out-of-
state tuition is a killer. Auntie has some IOUs from OCU for some reason and
I saw her work miracles with one before. Maybe she can help.”
“Wolf, how will your parents
take your having a boyfriend? Do they know you’re gay?”
“They have known since
before I did,” Wolf laughed. “It was never a problem even when I went off
the deep end being gay; they accept that being gay is just the way it is. A
boyfriend is another matter altogether. Marc and Justin have never seemed to
bother them, but they are not African-American nor are they their sons. Who
After dinner, Mrs. Crandall
had Mavis bring flutes and champagne and pour four glasses. “To young love
and to friendship,” she said as she raised her glass in a toast.
When she lowered her glass,
Wolf raised his and said, “Truly to friendship, to love in all its myriad
forms, to La Casa, Mrs. Metzer and the Mistress of La Casa, Mrs. Crandall.”
Later, Wolf and I went up to
the suite that had been Justin and Marc’s and took advantage of the Jacuzzi
and playing around in it. When we went to bed, Wolf said, “Derek, we are at
La Casa where we met and fell in love. This has been our beginning. Are you
worried about our future?”
“Not at all, Beautiful Boy.
We can make it work. We will make it work. Now let’s make love.” We did.
We were up at 7:00, had
breakfast and it was time to go. We hugged Mrs. Metzer and Mrs. Crandall and
thanked them profusely for a wonderful month. Mrs. Crandall assured us we
would be welcome back. Sharky and Antwon took us to the airport and after
long hugs, each of them kissed us -- on the mouth -- and we headed for
We landed in Norfolk at 2:30
and it was 3:00 before we met Jeremy. “Jeremy, my best friend, Wolf, love of
my life. Wolf, Jeremy.”
As the two shook hands,
Jeremy said, “So this time you did find boyfriend material. Wolf, have you
tamed this wild animal?”
“Well, he hasn’t been wild
with me or no wilder than I wanted,” Wolf laughed.
“You sound local,” Jeremy
“From the Valley of Humility
between the Two Mountains of Conceit,” Wolf replied.
“Valley of Humility between
two Mountains of Conceit?” Jeremy asked.
“Yeah, we’re stuck between
pretentious South Carolina and pretentious Virginia,” Wolf responded.
“How are things with Levi
and Telvin?” I asked.
“Like pigs in the mud. The
house was finished before you left, right?”
“Yeah. They were doing
interviews the Saturday after I left.”
“Well, I got the first room,
of course. For the time being I’m living alone. Don’t know that I’ll change
that. They have asked me to help with the house maintenance and all that and
I’m getting the room for half price anyway. I moved in the same time they
did. Turns out they had rented all the rooms by the time they finished
interviewing. They had space for ten more and had twenty to interview. Louis
and Caroline, his girlfriend, took one as did Philip. A grad has one and two
undergrads have the other. I had Levi and Telvin keep a sharp eye out for
you and now you go off to Key West and return with a boyfriend. So how did
you two meet? How did the romance develop? Hey, Wolf, this man would be my
lover instead of yours except for my tragic flaw. I am hopelessly straight.”
“But he did teach me to
kiss,” I laughed.
“You did one hell of a job
of it,” Wolf said.
“So you’ll not be on the
couch tonight,” I said.
“Nope. And should I ever
find a woman, I’ll not have to send someone to sleep on your couch.”
“So when did you last see
“An hour ago. I went over to
get the car.”
“Nice car,” Wolf said.
“It’s Auntie’s,” I said.
“Don’t let him kid you, it’s
his. Auntie hasn’t driven in years.”
When we arrived at the
house, Auntie was waiting with open arms. “Derek, Baby, so good to have you
home! Good time away?”
wonderful time,” I replied.
“And this beautiful young
man beside you had nothing to do with that.”
“He had almost all to do
with it. Auntie, Walter Steppenwolf Lancaster from Elizabethton, North
Hester Lancaster?” Auntie asked.
“I think so,” Wolf
“Derek, I won’t go into all
the linage, but you and Wolf have ancestors in common, but are not yourself
kin. It’s all complicated. Doesn’t matter since you’re not blood kin so no
“Incest?” Jeremy asked,
obviously as confused as Wolf and I were.
“Well, I’m assuming from
observing you two that you are more than very good friends and you both have
that newly-wed glow about you, so it’s good that no incest is involved, but
I guess it’s not terribly important since you’re not likely to reproduce.”
Jeremy was practically
rolling on the floor, Wolf appeared shell-shocked and I reminded myself that
it was Auntie we were dealing with. “Think you’ve got it all figured out,
Auntie,” I said.
“We’ll talk more later.
Derek, run your and Wolf’s bags upstairs and hurry back. Dinner is ready.
Jeremy, you’re staying, of course.”
“Thanks, of course.”
picked up our bags and Wolf started to go up with me, but Auntie said,
“Wolf, you are needed here.” He was needed so Auntie could question him. I
took our bags upstairs and when I came down, Auntie was placing food on the
dining room table and when we were seated, said, “Okay, tell me about this
Florida trip and how a Virginia boy got connected with a North Carolina
boy.” There were a lot more questions from Jeremy and Auntie as we told them
about my month in Florida.
