Wicked Game Ch. 07byvelvetpie©
Lake Tahoe spread beneath them like the wonderland resort town that it was. The weather was clear and crisp and no one talked much, lost in their own thoughts and the beauty of the scenery.
James sat in an aisle seat with Beverly on the inside, allowing her to have the view, but she wasn’t enjoying it. In fact, the whole flight, she’d been quiet, pensive. He’d wanted to ask her what was wrong but he didn’t want to intrude. He just wanted the happy Beverly back again. He reached over and touched her doughy arm and she looked over at him with sad eyes.
“What’s wrong, beautiful?”
Her big dark eyes welled with tears at his heartfelt words. “Nothing.”
“Then why is nothing causing you to cry?”
Beverly sniffled, trying to maintain her control. “I’m sorry, James.”
“Don’t be sorry. Just let me help.”
Her smile was fleeting. “I don’t know that there’s anything that you can help with.” She looked down at her hands, twisting them together. “I kinda told my mother to fuck off.”
“What?” James couldn’t help but laugh. Those words sounded strange coming from her. “What did she say?”
“Well, I didn’t exactly use those words.”
He smiled. “I thought not.”
“I don’t usually cuss.”
“How do you know?”
“Because ladies don’t usually cuss.” She gave him a shy smile. “So why is it making you so sad?”
In a halting voice, Beverly told him the whole sad story about her life and her mother, amazed that someone would want to listen to her troubles. When she finished, he just sat back in his seat, looking at her.
“Geez, Beverly. I thought I had it bad.”
“You? How could you have it bad?”
“Do you have any idea what it’s like to be famous?” She nodded. “Believe me, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.”
“Really? I always thought it’d be a lot of fun. All the parties … “
James shook his head. “The parties are filled with air-headed bimbos or prostitutes and they are almost never any fun.” He grinned at her look of confusion. “The best time I ever had was at a party I attended last year for the Pediatric Aids Foundation. I got my face painted and played a clown in the dunking booth.”
“What did you like more, having your face painted or getting dunked?”
“Having my face painted.” Beverly nearly laughed at the look of absolute glee on his face. “It made me think about being a child again.”
“And having one of your own?”
He hated that she was so perceptive. “Yeah.”
“Why haven’t you gotten married?”
“Never found the right girl. Came close a few times but I found out, just in time, that they were more interested in my money.” He paused. “And the one that I thought would be the love of my life ended up screwing everything in sight.”
“You bet it does.” James looked over her shoulder at the pristine lake and surrounding development. “So I’ve just been coasting along, hoping that I’ll find someone before it gets too late.”
“Yeah.” This time, his smile was fleeting. “Too late to have a life.”
Nathan came into the passenger area from the cockpit. “Buckle up. We’ll be landing in five minutes.”
Kevin was sleeping so Ashley leaned over and slung the belt across his lap and was digging around his hip for the other one when he awoke. “Oh, sorry. I was just trying to buckle you in.”
“Are we here?”
“Yep. Nathan said we’re landing in five minutes.”
“Good.” He smiled and she shyly looked away. “Ashley, can I ask you something?”
“Is all that stuff Kelly Jo told me about … the stuff that happened to you … is it true?”
The saliva dried in Ashley’s mouth. “S-She told you?”
“Yes. She’s my sister.”
“I asked her not to tell anyone.”
“Well, I’m not just anyone, Ash. Kelly Jo and I have been inseparable for all our lives. We’re siblings and we’re twins and we have a unique connection. She told me because she’s falling in love with you and she wants to make sure that I’m okay with you.”
“And are you okay?”
“Absolutely. I mean, it’s not easy thinking about your sister being taken, but I’m okay.”
“It’s not easy, especially when you love her as much as you do.”
Kevin’s eyes connected with hers. “Especially so.”
“You know, Kevin, we can both love her.” Ashley’s eyes darkened. “Together.”
Before he had a chance to reply, Kelly Jo awoke, stretching and yawning loudly. She grinned at both of them. “Are we there yet?”
“Just about to land, hon. Put your seat belt back on.”
“Why don’t you put it on for me?”
Ashley leaned across Kelly Jo and buckled the seat belt as Kelly Jo’s tongue slipped into her mouth and her thumb encircled a nipple, drawing it into a hard bud. “Safe now?”
Kelly Jo grinned, moving back in for another kiss. “Yes, and hornier than hell!”
The plane landed at the Lake Tahoe Airport and they were met by a stretch limousine, Nathan taking the wheel and driving them to an opulent cabin resort high in the mountains. Beverly and Ashley were the first to enter the lobby, looking at the other residents.
“I sure hope we don’t have to go naked again.” Beverly whispered. “It’s much colder here.”
Ashley burst into laughter. James, Kevin and Kelly Jo came next and the five some grouped together in the lobby area. Shane lagged behind, his brow furrowed in thought.
“Nathan, can I talk to you for a minute?”
“Sure, Mr. Kingsley. What can I do for you?”
“I want to know why I’m here.”
“The reason that you were selected has not been shared with me. My employer simply requested me to deliver the invitations and await your arrivals at the airport.”
“You delivered the invites? Then tell me. How’d you get in my room?”
“I am not at liberty to divulge that information to you.”
“Why the hell not? If you could get into my room, maybe someone else can!”
“Not the way I did, so you have anything to worry about.”
“That’s not fair.”
“No, it isn’t but that’s the best I can do.” Nathan watched as the bellman loaded their luggage onto a trolley. “What is it that you really want to know, Mr. Kingsley?”
Shane stared at the black man for a moment, his tongue tied in a knot. “I – I … I don’t feel like I belong here.”
“Why is that? Is anyone mistreating you?”
“Oh, no. No, not at all. Everyone’s been great! It’s just that … well, James obviously has a thing for Beverly and Ashley and Kelly Jo are together. And Kevin’s Kelly Jo’s brother, so … that leaves me.”
“A bit, yeah.”
“Bet you’re never lonely at school.”
Shane laughed easily. “No, I’m never alone at school. If it’s not practice, it’s classes. If it’s not classes, it’s tutoring.”
“And if it’s not tutoring, it’s keg parties, busty cheerleaders, girls in goth tights … “
“You seem to make strange choices in your life, Mr. Kingsley. You choose to leave your wonderful, happy home to attend a college thousands of miles away when you could have attended a magnificent school close to home.”
“I wanted to get away from home. Nothing strange with that decision.”
“And what about Anna?”
Shane’s face paled. “How … how did you know about her?”
“My employer did his homework, Mr. Kingsley.” Nathan leaned a little closer. “She’s due when?”
Shane just stared at him in disbelief. He couldn’t know! “June.”
“Two months from now.” Nathan tipped his hat to the bellman in respect and slammed the trunk’s lid shut. “What’s so very strange is that you’ve told everyone that you’re the father of her baby. And you aren’t.”
“Yes, I am!”
“In case you didn’t know, Mr. Kingsley, in order to make a child, you have to have sex with a female. Something that you’ve never done.” Nathan lowered his voice. “Because you’re gay.”
Shane suddenly felt light-headed. He groped for the car and instead felt Nathan’s strong arm beneath his, leading him to a bench in the center of the drop-off area. He felt his body slam down onto the wood slats and closed his eyes, fighting the urge to vomit. Someone had found out his secret! “Oh, God.” The boyish face of Bennett Sunderland swam before him and he remembered the first time his fingers had touched another man’s flesh. The steel of muscle beneath the softness of skin. The musky scent of Aramis in his nostrils as he licked another man’s nipples. The salty sweetness of cum, its warmth pooling in his ass …
“Your secret is safe with me.” Nathan murmured, still standing and acting like the attentive driver he was. “If you haven’t noticed, every one of you has a certain idea about sexuality and every one of you is being tested.”
“And what do we get if we pass the test?”
“I’m not at liberty to divulge that information … just yet.”
“That’s not fair!”
Nathan leaned down and harshly spat the words in his ear. “Deal with it.” Shane trembled, his innards shaking. “Now, are you ready to join the group?”
How could he face the group? “No. No, Nathan. I want to go home.”
“You want to go home? Jesus, you’re nothing but a child!”
“You don’t understand!”
“No, you don’t understand. Grow the fuck up!” Nathan hissed. “You are an adult! Live your life or be forced into someone else’s idea of what your life should be.”
Shane watched as Nathan left him on the bench, quivering with fear. Live your life. He suddenly realized that he wasn’t just afraid that someone would learn his secret, but also that he had no idea on how to live his own life.
Dinner was a quiet affair. Kelly Jo sat between Kevin and Ashley and Beverly sat between James and Shane. No one wanted to ask but they all knew that something was wrong. The usually enthusiastic, effusive quarterback was as silent as a grave. His handsome Californian features were drawn with worry and his sparkling blue eyes were flat.
Nathan entered the private dining room, a pair of envelopes in his hand and headed toward a small side table. “Mr. Kingsley, Mr. Marcus, would you please come join me over here?”
Shane and Kevin looked around the table, then to each other and slowly arose, crossing the space between the tables and taking chairs with Nathan. The driver handed each an envelope and silently watched as they opened and read them.
“By now, you should have had a great dinner and are ready to accomplish your sixth task on the scavenger hunt. The sixth task is to shave another man’s pubic region. Simple task? No. Shane and Kevin must be chosen to accomplish this task and one man must ejaculate. The reward will be $4,000 dollars, with $1,500 for the non-participants.” Kevin looked over at Shane. “The proof required is the man’s body covered with cum and viewed by Nathan. If you follow the instructions, you will receive the money upon completion.”
Shane looked up. “I’ve never had my pubes shaved before.”
Kevin’s laugh was a strangled bark. “But having them done by a man is no problem?”
The quarterback turned red, slamming the envelope down on the table. “I’ll do it.” He glared angrily at Nathan, thinking about their earlier conversation. “I’ll be in my room if you decide to play along.”
Kevin just sat quietly as Shane stormed out, not really sure why the young man was so angry but certain that his words had struck a nerve.
“I have been authorized to offer you an additional $2,000 if you both ejaculate.” Nathan took Shane’s envelope, tucking it into an inside jacket pocket and slid a cell phone across the table to Kevin. “Give me a call when you’re ready.”
Kevin nodded, taking the phone and knowing that he had given his tacit approval by accepting the instrument. He headed to the elevator, thumbed 5 and soon found himself at Shane’s door, room 503.
“Who is it?”
“It’s me. Kevin.”
“It’s open.” Kevin pulled the lever and the door opened, Shane sitting on the bed clad in a fluffy white hotel robe. “So it’s on?”
“Yeah.” Kevin sighed. “I agreed.” He started to unbuckle his pants. “Nathan said we could have an additional two grand if we both cum.” He observed the change in Shane. “Can you do this?”
Shane’s quiet and uncomfortable answer was: “Yes.”
“Okay. Then let’s get it done and over with.”
Shane nodded and stood, heading into the bathroom. Kevin followed, dropping his pants and underwear. Shane grabbed two fresh razors from his bag of sensitive disposables and handed one to Kevin. “So how do you want to do this?”
“Get naked and get comfortable, I guess.” Kevin half-laughed at the expression on Shane’s face. “I forgot. I’ve already been through one of these. You haven’t.” Kevin sat on the edge of the tub and tried to find a comfortable position on the cold ceramic space. “It’s best to just grit your teeth and get it done.”
“Okay.” Shane said haltingly. “Who does whom first?”
“I’ll do you, okay?”
“Okay. Where do you want me?”
“I think it would be best for you to lay in the tub so I can use the shower head to rinse you clean.”
Shane stepped out of his robe and sat in the back of the bath tub, all at one embarrassed that his half-hard cock was exposed to Kevin. The older man grabbed the retractable shower head, made sure that the cord was not twisted and adjusted the water. Then, he began to apply the shaving cream. Shane couldn’t help but shudder. It had been a long time since he’d felt another man’s hands on his body and the idea of a man shaving his pubes was so erotic. Blood coursed into his cock, making it rise even more.
Kevin noticed that Shane’s cock was half-hard before he started but he was really startled when it steadily grew when he put the cream around it. Maybe it’s just because I’m touching him, he thought. Every guy knew the joke about if the wind blew, your cock would get hard. It wasn’t too far from the truth. But when he looked up and saw that Shane’s eyes were closed, he knew that it was because he was touching him. Wow, Shane’s gay?
Shane shivered again, feeling the razor slip over his skin and Kevin’s fingertips on his skin, pulling creases open to make sure the hair had been cut. Oh, so good. Shane would never have imagined that being shaved could be such a turn-on. Kevin’s hand gripped his cock and pushed it to one side as he carefully shaved around it and Shane gritted his teeth, trying to maintain his control.
Kevin finished up the area around Shane’s penis as quickly as he could. He had noticed that Shane’s body had stiffened when he had to touch his penis and being a man, he knew that he was trying to keep from cumming. The job was almost complete, he was happy to say, and the last area was the ball sac. Kevin handled these with care, passing the razor’s edge over the tender skin above and below. He rinsed the shaving cream away and examined his work. Perfect! Now for the hard part … at least for him. He’d never done a guy before.
Shane gave a small moan when he felt Kevin grab his cock. His hand was firm and his skin was warm, sliding over his hard length and cresting the knob, slowly and tentatively. The innocence in his touch fanned his flames even more. “Oh.” The gasp escaped him involuntarily. Kevin’s fingers had touched his balls and were now gently rolling them, giving a light tug at intervals. “Oh, yes!” The hand stroking his prick tightened slightly, moving a little faster now, the creases of his fingers rubbing the edges of the crown and making sparks light behind his eyes. “Oh, God, yes!”
The balls in Kevin’s hand tightened, seeming to shrivel upward. He knew what that meant. He moved his hand faster still, lengthening the strokes from root to tip, gripping tighter at the base and more loosely at the top. Shane’s athletic body arched at each stroke, a deep shiver racking the perfectly formed muscles. His eyes remained closed, his mouth open in a perpetual moan. Then suddenly, his hand clutched Kevin’s arm and those clear eyes flew open, connecting with his.
“Oh, Kevin!” Shane could barely gasp Kevin’s name as the cum boiled up from his balls, streaking up his cock and landing squarely under his own chin. The second squirt landed on his chest, just below his nipples and the third and fourth spurts followed, coating his belly. His toes were painfully curled and his grip on Kevin’s arm became painful as well. “Sorry.”
“No problem.” Kevin released Shane’s penis, almost distastefully and moved back to allow Shane to rise. “Here, I have to call Nathan … “
“Wait. What about you?”
“It’s not necessary.”
“But, Kevin … “ Shane sighed deeply. “Never mind.”
“I … It’s just that … you made me feel so good, I’d like to … to … “
“Shane, I’m not gay.”
“I know.” The young man hung his head. “I just … “ Shane felt his throat close up and tears pricked his eyes. His feelings were just too close to the surface. “I just need to do it.”
Kevin was struck by the desperation in Shane’s young voice. He wondered if Shane was just finding out that he was gay or if he was just finally admitting it to himself. He’d been decent this whole trip, gentlemanly and concerned. And his care for Beverly had been above and beyond the call of duty.
“All right.” Kevin discarded his underwear and got into the tub. “But no funny business.”
“Okay.” Shane lathered Kevin up and made short work of the shaving bit. He handled Kevin’s penis and balls gently but was disappointed to notice that he wasn’t getting hard. Once the extra hair was gone, Shane saw that Kevin was larger than he’d originally thought and tried not to look too excited over that fact but his feelings overwhelmed him. He remained on his haunches, staring at Kevin’s magnificent cock, then looking up into Kevin’s eyes.
Kevin didn’t know what to think. He only knew that he saw a kind of beauty in Shane’s eyes that he’d never seen before. He wasn’t gay; he knew that but what he saw made him understand the attraction between men. Shane was beautiful and his eyes were full of honest love and genuine confusion. He numbly watched as Shane went from being a star quarterback and all-around testosterone-filled young pup to cum-loving twink. The young man’s mouth lowered until the tip of his cock was in Kevin’s mouth.
Shane took the head of Kevin’s prick into his mouth and gave it a long, slow suck, his tongue swabbing the slit and lapping up the sticky pre-cum that was slowly oozing out. Kevin’s body unconsciously responded to his attention, Kevin’s cock hardening and the fleshy head mushrooming in size. Shane hummed against the tumescent flesh in his mouth, loving its size, weight, smell and taste.
Kevin jerked in Shane’s mouth and fought a moan that formed in his throat. The boy was good. Kevin felt his tongue lave the slit, then outline the head and slide along the thick stalk and he swooned at the sensations that raced through him. The heat of his mouth and the wetness of his tongue combined to quickly drop Kevin over the edge, pumping strings of cum into Shane’s mouth without a warning. It took several minutes for Kevin to recover and taking one look at Shane, he thumbed the cell phone into life and summoned Nathan.
Nathan entered the room with a card key and came into the bathroom where Kevin and Shane were. He noted the cum on Shane’s chest but was very surprised when Shane opened his mouth, displaying a mouth full of jizz, then swallowed it.
“Congratulations! You’ve completed the task and for your extra effort, the $2,000 bonus will be raised to $3,000.”
Kevin rinsed himself off in the shower and put his underwear and pants back on, accepting the money for himself, his sister and Ashley. He paused at the door, watching Nathan hand Shane his money and went back, pausing beside the young man. For some strange reason, he felt compelled to offer Shane his hand in friendship. Shane looked at him in fearful suspicion, then took his outstretched hand, shaking it.
“See you at lunch.”
Shane nodded, his insides still quivering and sighed at the wonderment of a new friendship.
