I pulled my bag out from the back sit closing the car door and I turned around to find Colin behind me. He took the bag from me adding to his load already. “I can carry it,” I said to him.
“It’s ok I’ll carry it,” said Colin as he headed towards the door to his house. I followed after him. As Colin’s hands were full I knocked on the door instead and Colin smiled as I did it.
The door opened up to reveal a woman who looked a bit like Colin and had the same black hair and deep blue eyes that I could never stop staring at when I’m with Colin. “Oh honey it’s so great to see you,” she said pulling Colin into an embrace making the stuff in Colin’s arm slip nearly from his grasp but I made sure they didn’t fall which made his mums attention full on me.
“Mum, you know when you said that I need to stop pretending and start to be myself,” he said to her.
“You finally accepted that you’re gay,” she beamed.
“Yeah I have and this is Arrow my boyfriend. I know this is going to be asking you a lot but his parents found out about him being gay and they are not as open to the thought then you and dad are. I want to ask if he could stay with us for now?” asked Colin looking at his mum then to me.
“You are very much welcome into our home and I think me and my husband owe you to finally convince him or accept himself for who he is,” said his mother as she put her arm around me and wheeled me into her house Colin following behind us closing the door.
“It’s lucky Colin has a double bed.”
“Mother,” said Colin.
“What I’m stating the truth,” she grinned.
“Mother we do need to still speak about what happened with the money. I don’t think you should punish him,” said Colin.
“He maybe your brother but what he did. It’s the last straw and made us believe it was you. I think boarding school is our only hope,” she explained to Colin as she let her arm slide from me as she headed over to Colin.
“I don’t know mum. It may make him worse,” said Colin.
“It’s too late anyway. He is leaving tomorrow,” she said to him.
“That’s fast,” said Colin looking concerned.
“It’s for the best. Why don’t you show Colin your room? Dinner will be ready in about n hour,” she smiled before she left us in the front room and headed into the kitchen that stood opposite the front door. I couldn’t see the stairs anywhere though.
“Before you ask where the stairs are there just through that gap there. The way the house was built. Come on I might as well show you the room you will be staying in with me,” smiled Colin as he led the way to the space in the wall. I followed right after him and found him climbing metal stairs going up in a spiral.
I followed him. When I reached the top Colin was half way across the landing opening the far end room door. He waited for me to get to him and allowed me in first him following right behind me. His room had warmness to it. His double bed only took half of the room with enough space for a desk with a computer on it, a wardrobe and a spare part of the room not taken up at all.
“My TV had been there but my brother broke it,” said Colin.
“Does he have behaviour problems?” I asked him.
“Yeah pretty much but do you think he deserves boarding school?” asked Colin.
I shook my head. “No one does.”
Colin put his and my stuff on the floor before he took my hand and we both sat down on the bed. “I thought I could protect him. I thought I could try keep him grounded but I’ve failed him. I’m sorry you have to deal with this right now. It’s the last thing you need,” he said to me.
“Hey we both deal with our problems together I want that more than anything. You can count on me,” I said to him.
“You can count on me too,” smiled Colin before his lips pressed against mine. I put my left arm around his waist and put my right hand on Colin’s head trying to embrace him more as our tongues began to swirl around it others like we were born to do this.
“I love you,” said Colin as his lips left mine.
“I love you too,” I smiled as Colin smirked at me. Colin grabbed onto my top and pulled it off being chucking me onto the bed before climbing on top of me and his lips touching mine. He pushed himself against me rubbing against my groin.
