KEYWORDS: mm teen cons THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 1 Ever since martial arts video games got so popular I don't hang out at arcades much except to scope the other guys. I'm just not good at them. I miss the space battle ones they had when I was in grade school. I was doing my best not to suck too much at Mortal Kombat. The arcade wasn't too crowded, so nobody kicked me off. A few people would stop and watch for a minute but they usually only stayed long enough to see I was just a wannabe. A boy stopped to watch. He was fourteen or so -- around my age. He was a little taller, and had long stringy blond hair. But his face was nice. He stood so he could see both the game and me. That's partly how I knew it might happen. People interested in the game stand behind and look over your shoulder. People interested in you stand where they can check you out without looking obvious. He had a long flannel shirt and loose jeans, and he wore some kind of primitive stone necklace, the kind that looks like it's made from old Rice Krispies. "Up and left," he said suddenly. It startled me, and before I realized he was giving me advice, my character met a traditionally gory fate. "Want me to show you?" "Sure," I said. He took my place at the controls. "Here, get close where you can see." He indicated the place next to him. I stood there, our shoulders touching. He showed me two or three of the secret moves -- ones I'd seen but never remembered. With every move he edged a little closer to me until the entire side of my body was pressed up against his. I felt the warmth of his skin, and it was turning me on. I reached down and squeezed the bulge in my jeans. I saw his eyes move to watch me, and then return to the game. I tried to see his crotch, but his jeans were too loose and he was standing too close to the game. Then he lost on purpose. He just stood there and let his opponent tear him apart. "This is boring," he announced. "Wanna go do something else?" "Like what?" "I dunno," he said with a tone of voice that suggested he knew exactly what he wanted to do. We left the arcade and strolled through the mall. Usually the guys I picked up lived nearby and we went to their house. Instead he went down a service hallway, past the restrooms and back entrances to stores, and up to an unmarked door. Looking around, he pulled a thin strip of metal from his back pocket and managed to quite easily open the door. "Are we supposed to be doing this?" I asked. "Probably not. I haven't asked," he whispered. "The room's empty, so I don't who'd care if we were in it." The room was indeed empty. There was a lightswitch, but the fixture was missing. The only light came from a high barred window. There were some papers on the floor, receipts or something, and a small table. He shut the door behind us. We looked at each other for a brief second. Then he took the initiative. He cupped my crotch in his hand and began slowly rubbing it. Our eyes met for a moment, and his deep blue orbs spoke for him. Without a word we pressed our lips together. I'm not normally into kissing, but his breath was sweet and warm, and his lips like velvet. I felt his tongue slip between my lips and I sucked on it. My hardon was raging. He was squeezing it gently now. His other hand went around my shoulder and drew me close to him. This was new. I'd never had so much, well, passion from the guys I met in the arcade. It was usually a quick jack or blow job and I never saw them again. But this guy was really into it. I didn't mind much, I suppose. I'd kissed other guys before. I put my hand behind his head and kissed him back. This didn't last long. He was fumbling with the buttons on my jeans, undoing them one by one. I backed away slightly and reached for his pants. The shirt was in the way, so I had to unbutton it and since I'd gone to all that trouble I slid his shirt off his shoulders. He took his hands away long enough to completely remove the shirt. In the dim light his slender body was so tantalizing. I caressed his warm chest briefly before unbuttoning the top button of his jeans. His had a zipper, which made things easier. They were so loose they fell immediately to the floor. His undershorts were red boxers, and I lost no time in getting my first feel of the boy's cock by reaching up the leg. He was erect too, and I could feel his loose balls and soft pubic hair. Since he was having so much trouble with my clothes, I broke our embrace and whipped my T-shirt over my head and finished unbuttoning my jeans. I lowered them, giving him a good view of my tight white undershorts with the cotton stretched tightly over my throbbing cock. He looked at my bare chest and stomach, and at my legs, then smiled. He pulled the waistband of his boxers far enough out to clear his erection, then dropped them to his ankles where they joined his jeans. His cock was five or six inches, a bit larger than average for his age. His crotch hair was dark blond, or at least appeared that way in the dim light. His balls hung loose and low. He fondled his cock briefly. It took me just a second to reveal my own manhood. Five inches of throbbing teen cock with a dark bush of curly hair above it. I was hornier than I think I've ever been. I dropped to my knees and took the boy's cock in my hand. It was warm and hard, and throbbed slightly with his pulse. I had to have it. I took it into my mouth and slurped down a long way on it. I'm working on being able to deep-throat, but apparently I have an annoying habit of biting down at the point of deepest penetration. "Oh, jeez," the boy sighed. "Oh, God, that's good." Pleased with his approval, I began my pumping my lips up and down his shaft. I could taste the occasional salty drop of precum from his slit. His hands were on my head and he began fucking motions with his hips. I grabbed his asscheeks and held on. We fell into a rhythm that eventually had us both panting. I had to stop a couple of times to swallow the spit that was building up. It wasn't the biggest cock I'd sucked, but it was surely bigger than most. At last the boy tensed and gasped, and I felt his meat swell in my mouth. He threw back his head. I was then treated to gobs of his creamy white boyjuice that blasted into the back of my throat. After a half dozen spasms his head flopped forward. I let his softening cock slide out of my mouth. It hung slightly erect. I remembered what I'd been told about thin guys and long cocks and decided it must be true. His entire body had a light patina of sweat, and the odor of his teen body was driving me beyond endurance. "Now you do me," I said. "Too tired," was all he could manage. I was disappointed. This was the sex god of my dreams, and now it looked like he could barely stand. Fortunately I thought of something. I helped him over to the table. He waddled because of the jeans bundled around his ankles. He kind of got the idea, because he sat down on it and then lay down on his side. That put his mouth at about the same level as my cock, which was handy. He opened wide and I put my throbbing cock in. The warmth of his mouth was a welcome change from the cool air of the mall. He was doing things with his tongue on the head of my cock that was driving me absolutely insane. He couldn't move much, so I gently thrust my cock between his lips. The orgasm built up so quickly I almost didn't have time to do anything. But I managed to grunt "I'm coming" just before the climactic fire enveloped my young body and centered on my spurting organ. The boy was doing the best he could to swallow it all, but some of it leaked out and ran down his cheek, dripping onto the table top. It takes a lot of practice to swallow a horny teenager's entire load. When the last convulsions left my groin, I pulled my cock from the boy's mouth. He pursed his lips slightly to clean the last drops of cum off my dick. As typically happens when my sex drive goes away, I started thinking about practical things, like not getting caught. I pulled my shorts and jeans back on, trying to arrange my semi-erect cock in an inconspicuous way. My T-shirt had accumulated dust from the floor and I slapped it against my thigh to clean it as best I could. The boy was still panting from the exertion of sex, and so I helped him to a sitting position. I put his shirt around his shoulders and buttoned it the way he'd had it buttoned. Then when he was strong enough to stand, I helped him on with his boxers and jeans. "Sorry about that," he said. "God, that was a great blow job." "Nothing to it," I said nonchalantly, which was the truth. I guess I've just had a lot of practice the last couple of years. "I don't even know your name," he said. "Josh," I answered. "As in Joshua?" "Yeah, but I like Josh." "I'm Evan. Do you wanna do this again sometime?" "Sure, but let's pick a better place." "Fine with me. Where do you live?" "Cascade Park." "That's a long way off," he said. "How about your place?" "Definitely out of the question," he said. I didn't ask why. The aftertaste of his cum was still strong in my mouth as we cautiously opened the door and checked to make sure no one was around. Back in the mall we agreed to meet the following week in the arcade. I'll be looking forward to it. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 2 My brother David came out to Mom and Dad when he was seventeen. I was only eleven and was just figuring out that it felt good to play with my dick when it got hard. I knew about sex in the clinical sense, the egg-and-sperm thing, but I wasn't really clear on where things like blow jobs and feeling girls' tits came in. There was a lot of yelling behind closed doors when David dropped his bombshell. The only thing I remember was when Dad shouted "I'm not going to tolerate any perverts in my house!" David left that night and didn't come back for four days. I had always wondered what David and his best friend Lance did in his bedroom with the door closed. Every time I knocked David yelled "go away!" Even at that young age I thought they might have been doing something dirty together. My suspicions were confirmed when David's absence gave me time to carefully and thoroughly ransack his room. My booty was a small stack of gay porno magazines with Sports Illustrated covers taped to them. In school we'd always spoken with derision about "faggots." Now that I was looking at gay sex and knew my brother was gay, it was the greatest thing in the world. Maybe it was the stirrings of my pubescent sexuality, or simply the aura of forbidden desires. Whatever it was, I jacked myself to a wonderful climax looking at the pictures of smooth, muscular men pleasuring each other. I was worried that David's homosexuality was what made Mom and Dad split up. She eventually persuaded him to let David back in the house, but they rarely even spent time in the same room. David's boyfriend Lance, with whom he'd lived after Dad kicked him out, was no longer welcome in our house. Mom showered David with affection, but it wouldn't make up for Dad's muttered comments about his "son, the faggot." After the divorce was finalized, Mom explained that Dad had been sharing hotel rooms on business trips with rented female companions. That was why she divorced him. Dad had visitation rights, but only my sister Becky wanted to see him. She was still too young to understand. These and other thoughts occupied my mind on the way home. The bus ride to Cascade Park from downtown was even longer during rush hour. It was timed out just right, so I'd get home about an hour before Mom did. She worked late Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday was my night to cook dinner, so I reserved Thursdays for cruising boys. The bus let me off at the convenience store. I passed Jeff's house on the way home. Jeff was my first sex partner when we were both twelve. He was straight now, and had a cute girlfriend. I had no clue if he was fucking her or not, but if he was still as hung now as he was when he was twelve, she must be getting some rough rides. Jeff had been popular. Normally he probably wouldn't have hung out with me, but since we lived on the same street and were the same age, I don't think he could have avoided it. Whatever was cool, Jeff was into it. Of course at twelve sex starts to become very cool, so Jeff was bragging about his sexual prowess. It was all brag, I would later find out, but Jeff could make you believe anything. I was at his house one day when he dragged out his Playboys. It was well known that Jeff had the largest collection of dirty magazines. He was a god to the rest of the sixth grade class. We were two or three magazines into his stack when we could no longer contain our bulging erections. "Do you jack off?" he asked me, rather bluntly. "Sure," I answered, my voice wavering. "All the time." "Wanna jack off now?" "What? You mean together?" "Sure. Unless you're chicken." Far from chicken, I'd been having wet dreams about Jeff for several months. I'd pretended his face was on the guys in David's magazines, which I had been clandestinely masturbating to for nearly a year. Mutual interest was extreme as we each bared our privates and began to stroke. Jeff's cock was huge compared to mine, which had only recently begun its swell to manhood. My few downy pubes were no match for his thick, dark brown mane. His balls hung smooth and loose beneath the mammoth prick. In reality it was probably only four or five inches long, but since it was the first erect cock I'd seen in real life, except my own, it was the proverbial Norseman's cock. I hoped it wasn't too obvious that I was more interested in Jeff's cock than in his magazines. But he seemed too involved with bringing about his orgasm that it noticing who was salivating over his young, virile body. Our ejaculations, if combined, wouldn't have filled a teaspoon, but it was so cool to be "real men" together. Then he pulled his underwear back on and we went to go do something else. Jeff's cock occupied by masturbation fantasies for days afterward. I wanted to stroke it, lick it, and kiss it. I wanted him to blow a load in my mouth. As I neared my house, I remembered the first time this happened. For several weeks I jacked off regularly with Jeff, always at his house. He'd been to my house, but only briefly. I was rather embarrassed that I didn't have cool toys or video games, and that I wasn't any good at sports. I was scared Jeff would be so bored at my house he'd never want to hang out with me. The day we wanted to bike over to the park it rained torrentially. We sat in my room, trying to come up with something else to do. Jeff's house was being painted. "Say, do you have any dirty magazines?" he asked. I really wanted to say no. I shaped my mouth into the word "no" but somehow "yes" came out instead. "Let's see 'em," he said. "I really don't have any," I protested, not very convincingly. Which was true. They belonged to my brother, and I went to great pains to ensure he didn't know I used them too. "You just said you did." "They're my brother's. He doesn't want me messing with them." "Big deal," said Jeff. "He won't even know." We argued for several more minutes. It became obvious that Jeff wasn't going to give up. I went and got David's magazines and dropped them in a stack on my bed. Jeff leafed through the first few pages. I waited for him to say something like "Is your brother some kind of homo?" but his eyes just got wider and wider. "Jeez!" he said at last. "I didn't know guys even did things like this. This is so kinky." Somebody as cool as Jeff couldn't have been ignorant about gay sex. Kids talked about it on the playground, in gym class. "God, I'm gonna blow a load right now," he said. Sure enough, cum spurted only a few strokes after he had freed his member. Instead of putting away his cock as we usually did after jerking off, he let it hang while he turned the pages. "Is this what you jack off to?" he asked. "Yeah," said, my courage having returned. "Have you ever done any of this stuff with another guy?" he asked in a whisper. "No." Honesty seemed to be working. I decided to stick with it. "Do you want to?" I didn't know if he was asking me if I was gay, or if I wanted to have gay sex with him. I tried to come up with a non-committal answer. "I'd like to try it sometime," I said. "Really?" he asked, amazed. "And I thought _I_ was kinky." My eyes dropped to his now-hard prick. He noticed this. "You wanna feel me off?" he asked. I hesitated. I still thought I was being set up. "No, seriously," he continued. He spread his legs and leaned back. As if watching myself on TV I scooted closer and took his cock in my hand. It was surprisingly warm, and I could feel Jeff's heartbeat. My fingers brushed his pubic hair, and I was surprised at its coarseness. I stroked it lightly while Jeff watched in fascination. "Ooh, play with my balls too," he said. I obliged, fondling them through his loose scrotum. "Lemme play with yours too," he said. I stood up and kicked off my shorts. I stood between his legs, my cock bobbing in front of his chest. He took it gingerly in his fist and started jacking me. I used my fingertips to masturbate. Jeff used his whole fist, mainly because it took his whole fist. "I'm cumming," I gasped, and Jeff shifted his grip so he could watch the event. Two or three drops of semen fell to the floor between us as I unloaded in front of the coolest guy in school. My boy orgasm was stronger than I'd ever felt it. "Jeez, did I do that?" he asked. "Yeah," I managed. "That was great." "Do it to me," he said, spreading his legs wider. I knelt between his legs, my armpits resting on his thighs. The warmth of his body and the residual flame from my climax filled me with longings I was not accustomed to. Jeff's cock stuck straight up a few inches from me. I stroked him in earnest, pressing his meat between my fingers. The flesh of his rod felt familiar and foreign at the same time. The smell of his crotch was powerful in my nostrils. I did the thing I'd dared not do. I pulled his young tool away from his stomach and lowered my lips over the head. "Whoa, Jeez!" said Jeff. But his amazement gave way to moans of pleasure. "God, that feels so good," he whispered. I'd never given a blow job before, so I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be doing. What surprised me was the huge size. I had figured it wouldn't be that different from sucking a popsickle. But Jeff's dick was almost gagging me. I had to swallow the spit several times. At first I just held his penis in my mouth. But he instinctively started thrusting, and I took over bobbing my head up and down his shaft. Fortunately his horniness made up for my inexperience. With a gasp he threw back his head. I felt his cock expand in my mouth. For a moment I panicked and wanted to withdraw, but before I could the blast of cum hit the roof of my mouth. Jeff spasmed three or four times, depositing his hot, slimy fluid. I started coughing and without thinking swallowed most of his load. The thick fluid burned its way down my throat, coating it with a salty flavor that I longed to get rid of. When I returned to reality, I was aware that Jeff was panting. His stomach and chest heaved against my forehead. I let his softening cock slide out of my mouth and flop back against his belly. "Holy shit!" said Jeff. "That was so good! How come you never told me you knew how to do that?" "I ..." I began. "I didn't want you to think I was a fag." "You said you've never done anything like that with another guy?" "Yeah, that's right," I said. "Well I guess that makes us both first-time fags," he grinned. "I won't tell if you won't." "Sure," I said. I didn't plan to, and I hoped like hell Jeff wouldn't. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 3 Mom was already there when I got home. "Where have you been?" she asked. "Just playing video games," I answered. "What happened to your shirt? It's got dust all over it." "I dropped a quarter behind a game and had to crawl back to get it." Quick thinking, if I do say so myself. "We'll have dinner in half an hour." My encounter with Evan and thinking about Jeff on the way home made me really horny. On the way upstairs I passed Becky coming down. She was eleven now, and starting to talk about boys. If she noticed my erection she didn't say anything. I pulled out the stack of magazines. David and Lance both joined the Navy when I was thirteen. His leaving was more emotional than when Dad left. That night when I went to bed, there was a bundle in my closet that I hadn't put there. The attached note read Dear Josh, Don't think I didn't know you jerked off to these too. I'm not mad. I think it's cool to share them with my little brother. Anyway, now they're yours. Have fun with them. Don't let Mom see them. She isn't as strong about this as she lets on. Take care of Mom and Becky. David P.S. Lance thinks you're cute. Over the past year I'd only been able to add one or two magazines to the collection. But they were my chief form of sexual activity for a long time. Jeff, it turned out, was only interested in passionate experimentation. Our affair lasted only for a month during the summer after which he lost interest in sex with me. He didn't lose interest in sex, but I think he was upset because the only action he was getting was from another boy. I, on the other hand, was honing my blowjob skills to perfection. After gagging Jeff's cum down four or five times, I learned to prepare for his ejaculation. I even got used to the taste. In the hallway at school one day soon after this I passed Jeff talking to a group of boys. "Yeah," said Jeff to the group. "This girl just sucked my cock. She even swallowed my cum." He hadn't seen me yet. Most of the boys were skeptical. So was I. I knew the only blowjobs he was getting were from me. He was a bit startled when he saw me and realized I'd overheard him. Our eyes locked for the briefest second. I'm not sure what was communicated between us, but we both understood. "It's true," I told them. "I was there. She really did it." That probably did more to cement our friendship than the sex did. This was after we'd stopped having sex, but we each still carried the secret we dared not reveal. Jeff and I still ride the same bus, so we see each other almost every day. He still says hello to me, and I still say hello to him. He sometimes catches me glancing at the huge bulge in his jeans, and he smiles when he does. Maybe someday I'll get a chance to blow him again. I took off my dirty clothes and lay down on the bed in just my undershorts. I chose a magazine at random and turned to the pictorials. Two men sat in a sauna in a faky embrace. One of the men had longish blond hair, and I imagined Evan's face on him. Of course the man's hair was clean; I'd been too busy with the more intimate areas of Evan's body to notice that his needed washing. Bathing with Evan seemed a pleasant thing. I imagined sitting naked in a sauna with him. He would lean over and kiss me, and I would kiss him back. We'd start to fondle each other's cocks. Unconsciously I began humping the bed. The wet spot over my cockhead grew. I became more aware of my arousal as I finished that magazine and moved on. Finally I flipped over on my back and pulled my hard cock out over my waistband. There was dried cum in my pubes. I drew my fingers through it, almost relishing the tiny stings of the curly brown hair separating. There was petroleum jelly under the bed for just such occasions, and with my hand fully greased I began the ritual of autoeroticism. I suppose I'm an expert in masturbation, as every fourteen year old boy is. I liked to think I was a little more expert since I'd not only fondled myself to orgasm, but several others as well. And I'd let other boys demonstrate their technique on me. My stroking was refined and sensual. I pressed my left hand against the inside of my thigh, middle finger stimulating my asshole and the thumb fondling my smooth balls. The right hand moved up and down the shaft. Slowly down, with a long, firm stroke, then back up to the tip with a looser grip. I could do this for hours, or I could cum in sixty seconds if I had to. I knew I had half an hour, so I rationed out my strokes. And slipped into a daydream. Middle school was a new experience. In grade school gym we all played games in our street clothes. But in middle school we had locker rooms and athletic clothing. Most boys were very shy about changing clothes in front of each other, but after a week or two it wore off. Near the end of the year we were laughing and talking with each other buck naked, going to great pains to make each other think we were comfortable with our nudity. I was in heaven. Cocks of every shape and size bobbed between bare legs. Small hairless dicks and huge furry ones; tight ballsacks, loose ones swaying in the breeze; cute asses bending over to pull up undershorts. I simply couldn't believe the feast of raw boyhood I was served up every day. Of course the problem I discovered early on was the erection. Getting a woodie in the locker room was a sure fire way to be forever branded a horrible "faggot." The only physical skill I learned in that class was how to control the boner. Of course, once the jeans were back on, I sprang to full erection watching my classmates parade nude in front of me. It was strictly a hands-off affair until the end of the year when we attempted to learn gymnastics. The gym coach was a doddering old man who taught the class by bringing in outside experts. The outside expert for gymnastics was a member of the college men's gymnastics team. He was the first adult I ever wanted to have sex with. He was not tremendously muscular, but there wasn't an ounce of fat on him. His chest was bare, and his nipples stuck through his tank top in a way I at least found erotic. But his basket was the glory I sought. I'd always wondered if gymnasts and ballet dancers stuffed their tights. As he explained routines and techniques, I carefully pondered the delicate contours of the bulging Lycra between his legs. By the end of the two-week unit I was fairly certain Mr. Hudson (as we were required to call him) was every inch what he seemed. Since ours was the last class of the day, we had to take turns helping Mr. Hudson dismantle the equipment and put it away. I could hardly wait for my turn. That afternoon we slid all the equipment in to the lockers and then went downstairs to shower. The locker room was deserted. Mr. Hudson thanked me for my help, and I went to my locker to undress. As usual I headed for the shower room. I had just soaped up when to my surprise Mr. Hudson joined me. His mammoth cock swayed under a trimmed bush of light brown hair. His lean musculature was revealed in full glory. At that point my penile discipline was instantly shattered. My cock rose to full erection in seconds. I turned away, trying to hide it from Mr. Hudson, but I couldn't really convince him I was taking a shower if I faced away from him all the time. I decided to rinse off, walk past him when his back was turned, grab a towel from the hamper and wrap it around me before he saw anything. As I turned to rinse my back, Mr. Hudson suddenly turned. His eyes darted to my teen erection. He smiled, not in derision, but in understanding. I laughed a little. Without looking away, Mr. Hudson began lathering his privates. In a few moments his dick was hard too. It jutted away from his hard athlete's body like a cannon. "There, Josh," he said. "Now you don't have to be embarrassed." My eyes were riveted on his member. From where I stood it must have been a foot long, although I think I was just mesmerized by the sight of an adult erection. Mr. Hudson continued to stroke his cock, building a thick lather of soap suds around it. I couldn't believe it. My gym coach was jacking off for me. I followed suit. I lathered my crotch and began pumping my cock with him. It didn't occur to me that anyone could have walked into the shower at any time. It did seem to occur to Mr. Hudson, because he walked to the door and checked the locker room outside. He returned with his dick bouncing in front of him. He walked right up to me. "Rinse off your penis," he said. "And don't tell anyone what I'm about to do." I did as he told me. Then he knelt in front of me and took my cock into his mouth. The warmth and wetness of his mouth made my heart beat frantically. His tongue was doing things to my cock that I'd never felt before. He cupped by ass in his hands and forced my hips back and forth, and my cock to slide in and out of his mouth. The suction was enormous; I felt my cock ballooning inside his mouth. I didn't have much time to savor my first blowjob (on the receiving end) because he slipped a finger into my asshole and pressed firmly against the side of my rectum. A fiery wave of pleasure such as I had never felt before surged through my body. My dick exploded with fury inside Mr. Hudson's mouth, and he eagerly swallowed every drop of cum. My knees weakened, but he caught my fall and lowered me to a sitting position. My cock was already limp and lay glistening against my thigh. "Anybody ever do that to you before?" he asked. "No," I said. "But I've done it to other guys." "Really," he said, somewhat amused. "Guys my age?" "No, Mr. Hudson." "You can call me Eric. I'm only 22. It sounds like you're talking to my dad. So who have you done it with?" "Jeff Woodward," I answered. "Do you know him?" "Yeah. Dark hair, cocky. Hung pretty nice." "Yeah. I've sucked him." "Wanna try something this size?" he asked, hefting his shaft. "Sure," I said, and got to a kneeling position. That wouldn't work, I saw, as the tip of his cock was level with the top of my head. "Dry off and come to the coach's office," he said. He rinsed himself and put a towel around his waist and left the shower. I stood up, still a bit shaky, and rinsed the cum residue off my cock. The coach's office had an outer room with a window so you could see the locker room. There was also a back room with a refrigerator, first aid kit, and so forth. Eric was waiting in the back room. After I came in he locked the door behind us. He took of the towel and finished drying himself. It seemed more intimate with just the two of us in the small room. There was a cot next to the back wall for first aid cases. Eric lay down on it and motioned for me to sit next to him. I saw I could easily bend over to suck him. "Whenever you're ready," he said. I lifted his cock away from his stomach. The weight and thickness surprised me. I wrapped both hands around the shaft and still had room at the top for my mouth. I opened wide and put my mouth over his cock head. It was absolutely huge in my mouth. I could only get the head in and a little bit of the shaft. I worked my tongue around his head, picking up little salty drops of pre-cum. It was apparent this was going to be just a glorified jack-off; I couldn't get enough of him in. I worked my hands around his shaft. It was like warm steel coated in rubber. I fondled his balls briefly. Apparently he shaved there because it was covered in fine stubble. Eric was getting more turned on and moaned softly every few seconds. His legs writhed gently under me and his soft, sculptured chest heaved. My reputation was at stake, so I was doing the best I could with my mouth. My jaw ached from being open so far for so long, and I had to stop every few minutes to rest it and to swallow the spit that kept forming. Then Eric gasped something that sounded like "I'm cumming," and I felt his cock start to spasm. About a gallon of hot cum fountained from his hole, followed by three or four more gallons. My mouth was full of the slimy fluid and I couldn't swallow fast enough to keep up. It spilled out around my lips and dripped down my chin and onto his stomach. Eric's head was back and he was panting heavily. A fine sheen of sweat covered his torso. I had to pull his cock out and choke down (or up) the buckets of jism that Eric had fed me. What didn't go down I wiped up with my damp towel, cleaning off his stomach at the same time. I laid his softening cock back onto his flat, hard stomach and wondered what to do next. A romantic urge overcame me and I placed my head down on his stomach, just next to his cock. I rubbed the chest I'd longed to rub for two weeks, feeling his refined, powerful pectoral muscles. He lifted his head to look at me. "Holy shit, Josh, you are really good at that," he panted. I smiled mischievously at him and he tousled my hair. "Only two other boys have been able to make me cum with their mouths, and you did it better than all of them." We got dressed and left the gym together, he to the parking lot and me to the city bus stop. The school buses had left some time before. He wave at me and I waved back. He'd given me a mouthful of hot adult cum, and aching jaw, and my first blowjob. But he'd also given me something more valuable than anything else I could imagine -- he'd praised me on my skill at sex. My reverie was broken by a knock at the door. "Dinner's ready," said Becky from outside. "Be right there," I answered. I accelerated my stroking, feeling the orgasm build within me. It was going to be a quickie, and not very satisfying. But I squeezed hard and pumped and shot two or three gobs onto my teen chest. Then I got dressed in record time and went downstairs. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 4 (Note: This chapter is mostly story, although there is some masturbation and allusions to previous and future sex.) Eric and I didn't have a chance to do anything else. Two days later his job was over. I really hoped to have another chance to have sex with him, but it never happened. What happened instead was a manila envelope I found in my gym locker after Eric's last day. "Open in Private" was written on the outside. Curiosity ate on me all the way home. In my bedroom I opened the envelope. Inside was a Polaroid shot of Eric, nude and erect, and a note. Dear Josh I know you wanted to have some more fun before I had to go, but I think it's better this way. There's just too much that can go wrong. I meant it when I said you were good at doing what you did. But I think you'd be happier and safer with boys your own age. If you run out of "friends" try the Parkside Mall arcade. That's where I used to hang out. Here's a picture to remember me by. Hugs and kisses, Eric I supposed I expected something like this. I had a childish hope Eric would be my new pal, but he was so much older. He lived in a different world that I couldn't be part of. The reference to the Parkside Mall fascinated me. What kind of "friends" would I meet there? I determined to find out. Dinner that night was typical. Mom griped about her job and Becky filled us in on all the neighborhood gossip. "I heard Jeff's mom tell Katie's mom she caught him in the closet with his girlfriend kissing." "You should listen in on people's phone conversations," replied Mom. "It's rude, and you could hurt someone's feelings." "But she said it right out loud. It's not like I was spying." "Still, what Jeff and his girlfriend do and what his mom thinks about it is a private matter that's none of your business." Mom's approach to sex and us kids was pretty much that it was our own business. She didn't really want to know, but she did care. It was about the time Jeff stopped letting me suck him off that Mom decided to talk about the birds and the bees. She would have been much more comfortable if a man like a doctor or a rabbi had done it, but she felt it was a parent's responsibility. After explaining in as cold and clinical terms as possible just how a man and woman go about making babies, she asked me if I knew why Dad was angry at my brother David. "It's because he's gay, isn't it?" "Yes. Do you know what that means?" "I suppose it means he's attracted to other guys," I said. "That's right. Lot's of people including your father think that it's wrong and that homosexuals should be punished or picked on." "Is it wrong?" I asked. "No," she answered. "Not in any real way. Obviously it's not how babies are made, but if two men love each other enough, they should be able to express that love physically. It's between them, and it's nobody else's business." We were never religious. Mom and Dad were married by a rabbi, but we never went to synagogue. In fact, we always had a Christmas tree. After David came out and before the divorce, though, Mom went to see our rabbit a couple of times. I suppose she needed advice. Normally she went to Grandma for that, but how do you tell an old-fashioned woman that her grandson is making out with other guys? Mom got a curious look on her face. "Are you attracted to other boys?" The moment I had dreaded was at hand. David's coming out didn't go so well. But Mom had recovered quickly. I kept remembering what David said before he left, that Mom wasn't as strong as she made out to be. But I couldn't lie. Not about something this important. "I suppose so." "Have you had sex with a boy?" "Yes." "What did you do?" "I ..." I didn't know how to phrase it. This was my mother I was talking to after all. "Did you touch his penis?" "Yeah." "Did he touch yours?" "Yeah." "Did you have oral sex?" Good way of phrasing it. Why hadn't I thought of it? "Yes." "Did he ejaculate in your mouth?" "Yeah." "Did you ejaculate in his mouth?" "No." "Who all have you had sex with? I promise it will be between you and me." "Jeff Woodward," I said. She didn't seem surprised. "Do you know about sexually-transmitted diseases?" "You mean like AIDS?" "AIDS is one of them," she said. "These diseases are transmitted from one person to another in body fluids. You can get diseases from a person's semen by having it in your mouth or other places. Do you know if Jeff has had sex with anyone else?" "He hasn't." "Do you know what safe sex is?" "Like using a condom?" "Condoms are part of it. Do you know how to use one?" "Yes." "Do you have any?" "No." "I'll get you some. I'll buy them whenever you run out. What else is part of safe sex?" "I dunno." "Something called abstinance." She knew I understood the word. She was making a point. "I'm not going to tell you what you should and shouldn't do with your own body. You're old enough to have sex, and I think you are old enough to be smart about it. But I am going to give you some advice. Wait until you're older to have sex with the person you choose, whether it's male or female. And when you have sex, use a condom for protection." I nodded. "There are other alternatives, you know," she continued. "Do you masturbate?" "Yeah." "Do you know what mutual masturbation is? That's when you just masturbate with someone else. It's still fun, and a lot safer." We talked for a long time about how sex comes from love and that sort of thing. It was late when we stopped. "I just want you to know, Joshua, that I don't hate you because you are gay, or that I don't want you to be or do anything just because I want it. I hope you'll always be comfortable talking with me about sex. I'll try my best to help." Mom was cool. The next day after school there was a box of condoms on my bed. A whole dozen, cherry flavored. I guess Mom thought I was going to get a lot of action. Curiosity overwhelmed me, and I ripped the box open. The individually-wrapped condoms looked ominous. I felt myself getting hard, pressing against my jeans. I freed my thirteen-year-old cock and tore open one of the packages. It slid easily onto my teen-sized cock. I remembered that if it fit loosely you were supposed to hold the top against your shaft. The latex felt weird against my flesh. It was turning me on. I hadn't intended to jerk off, but it seemed that it was inevitable at this point. Waddling over to the door (because my pants were down around my knees) I closed and locked it. Mom would know what I was doing. Back on the bed I sat and began jerking. The slippery latex slid against my cock, I could still feel the heat of my prick through the thin rubber. My orgasm came quickly, and I watched through a haze of pleasure as the tip of the condom filled magically with white cream. I slid the item off slowly, noting that my entire cock head was now covered with my jism. A fantastic idea occurred to me. I tilted my head back and let the still-warm sperm ooze out of the condom onto my tongue. I rolled the condom from the tip, forcing it out like toothpaste and sucked it out of the opening. Yep, cherry flavored. I'd never tasted my own cum before. It tasted just like Jeff's, I decided. But with a hint of cherry. I didn't crave the taste of cum. It never really tasted good to me. But it reminded me of sex, and especially of sex with Jeff. And that was a turn-on. Friday was a slow day at school. The naked teenagers in the locker room didn't turn me on as much, which I suppose was a good thing. I jerked off again that night before going to bed. Saturday I decided to go back to the arcade. I had done it a few times on weekends before. I guess I really wanted to see if Evan was there, although I knew he wasn't expected until Thursday. I told Mom I was going downtown to the mall, and caught the bus. Parkside Mall is a downtown mall. Only the rich people shop there, but since it's in the urban part of town lots of city kids hang out there. You can tell right away if a kid is there shopping with his parents or if he lives around town. The arcade fills up with skate punks on Saturdays too. You have to watch out for them sometimes. Brad was there today. He was the first boy I'd had in the arcade a year ago. I hadn't seen him for a couple of months. His hair was short. Brad had Irish red hair that stood out in a crowd. He hated people calling him Red, so I didn't. "Yo, Josh," he said without looking up from his game. "How's it hanging, dude?" "Fine. Anything good today?" "Yeah, check out that kid on RoboCop." This one was definitely a rich kid. His clothes were neat. He was about sixteen, with neatly trimmed dirty-blond hair and dark eyebrows. "Is he a live one?" I asked. "Live" meant that they were either known to be interested in sex or that they were sending out the signals that they wanted sex. There were maybe a dozen of us who hung out in the arcade looking for sex. Half of us came from the suburbs and the other half were city kids. Some of the city kids did it with adults for money. The rest of us who were scared shitless of sex with strange adults, or who didn't need the money, basically did it with each other, or with the strangers who came in. You knew a kid wanted sex if he grabbed his crotch while playing a game. Sometimes you could just read it in their faces. Then the obvious ones, the boys in tight pants with raging erections. "Not live yet," answered Brad. "What's he doing now?" "Just playing. He's cute." "Yeah," agreed Brad. "I'll bet he has fuzzy legs." That was Brad's fetish. He like guys with blond fuzzy leg hair, the kind that looks like loose yellow steel wool." "You wish," I kidded. "I think I'll scope him," said Brad. I watched as he walked over to the boy. Slowly, as if wandering the arcade aimlessly. He stood next to the boy, watching him blow away imaginary bad guys. The deal was that if a guy made a move like grabbing his crotch or lifting up his shirt a lot to expose his stomach, you answered by watching him play his game, then sliding your foot up next to his. If he didn't move his foot away, he was on the prowl. If he wasn't interested in sex, the normal reaction would be to move his foot away. I saw Brad's foot against the boy's. The boy didn't back away. His foot and lower leg was firmly pressed against Brad's. Brad turned back to me and raised his eyebrows rapidly like Grouch Marx. Then he turned and headed for the door. The boy left a few seconds later. Obviously Brad was going to score. Would I do any better? THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 5 I roamed around the dark, noisy room looking for likely partners. The skate punks were out in force. Suddenly Brad was at my side. "C'mon," he said urgently. "I talked him into a threesome." I had hoped to stay and wait for Evan, but since it was possible he wouldn't show up I opted for immediate sex. With city kids you could usually just go to their house. Brad lived fairly close in a refurbished apartment building. But when the kids from the suburbs wanted sex with each other we had to find a place to do the deed. If it was a quickie there was always the deserted hallways, or under the staircases. There were bathrooms if you were brave enough, but the security guards could catch you at any time. When the mall wasn't busy you could do it in a toilet stall in the bathroom. The blower drops his pants and sits on the stool. The blowee stands in a shopping bag in front and you lean over and suck him off. If anyone comes it and looks under the partition, it looks just like a guy in a stall with his shopping bag taking a shit. Usually you can jack off while you blow the kid, but it's hard doubled over like that. And if the kid wants to blow you, you have to trade places, and that's cumbersome and noisy. The mall was packed today so the chances of finding a deserted corner were small. I led them to the storage room where Evan and I had our first encounter, but the door was locked. I had no clue how Evan had opened it. "Can we go to your house?" I asked Brad. "If my sister comes home early we'll be in deep shit," he responded. "When does she get home on Saturdays?" "Noon, sometimes." I looked at the sixteen-year-old. He had testosterone coming out of his ears, he was so horny. "Let's go for it." Brad opened the door slowly, but it appeared the apartment was deserted. The kitchen was small and piled high with dirty dishes whose odor blended with old furniture. The living room sofa was opened into a bed, since that's where Brad slept. There were only two bedrooms, one for his mother and one for his sister. The arrangement meant that if Carla came home early, the first thing she would be treated to was the sight of three naked boys on Brad's bed. "How much longer do you have?" Brad asked the boy. He looked at his wristwatch. "Another hour." His voice was clear, but filled with uncertainty. "I'm supposed to meet my mother." "We'll have to hurry. It's a twenty-minute walk back to the mall." Brad and I began to unceremoniously undress. Our shoes went under the bed. We normally retained our socks just because it was hard to get them back on over sweaty feet. Pants and shirts followed. "What's your name?" asked Brad. "Steve," the boy replied. "This is Josh," he said, indicating me, "And I'm Brad. Don't call me Red." "Okay," Steve said. He was visibly nervous, and was taking off his clothes slowly, laughing a bit to cover his anxiety. "Just pile your clothes on the chair." Brad and I pulled off our undershorts, our cocks bobbing up from their confinement. Steve stared at them, surprised at our nonchalance at being aroused in front of each other. The phone rang and scared the hell out of all of us. Brad answered, said a few curt syllables, then hung up. "Good news," he said. "That was Carla. She won't be home until dinner." "Yeah, but Steve still only has forty minutes," I pointed out. "Yeah," agreed Brad. "Get your pants off," he told Steve. He hooked his thumbs in the elastic and lowered his shorts, exposing a bit of pubic hair. "Oh, man, I don't know about this," he said. "C'mon, you'll love it," encouraged Brad. Steve dropped his shorts to the floor and straigtened up. His cock was of average length and girth. He had hair on his legs, but not the fuzz Brad was hoping for. The pubic hair was dark brown and also covered his balls a bit. "Nice one," said Brad. I nodded in agreement. "Are you a jock?" "I'm on the track team," he said. "Thought so. You have nice legs." "Wanna get the Dick-O-Meter?" I asked. "Sure," said Brad, and went to his mother's bedroom where he kept his clothes.. Steve looked puzzled. Brad returned with it. The Dick-O-Meter was nothing more elaborate than a ruler with pencil markings on the side that didn't have the inches marked. He knelt in front of Steve and placed the tip of the ruler next to the base of Steve's cock. With a pencil he marked the tip and wrote "Steve" next to it. Then he read the other side. "Five and seven eighths inches. Not too bad." The Dick-O-Meter had a dozen or so such marks, most clustered around the five-inch mark, since most of the contributers were in the twelve-to-fourteen age group. There was one mark at the nine-inch range, labelled "Brad", obviously a mark he'd put there himself. Brad's cock was no longer than mine, nor any thicker. But he did have the novelty of bright red pubic hair and freckles on his cock. It made for a change of pace. "What do I do?" asked Steve nervously. "Just lie down on the bed," said Brad. "And leave the driving to us," I added with a giggle. Steve reclined on Brad's unmade bed, his cock slapping against his stomach. I lay on my stomach on one side of the boy and Brad took up a similar position on the other side. We each put a hand on his cock and lifted it away to a vertical position. We then began a practiced ritual of licking up and down the boy's shaft, one on each side. Our tongues touched frequently, but our concern was pleasuring the boy. Steve was breathing in short gasps, whether from arousal or nervousness I don't know. I put my free hand over his chest and felt his heart pounding. Brad and I then took turns sucking him in earnest. While Brad's lips were wrapped around Steve's teen cock, I flicked my tongue over his balls. His pubic hair tickled my lips. The familiar scent of boy's crotch sweat -- more distinctive than any other sweat -- assailed my nostrils, spurring me to more arousing action. Brad and I switched places. I lowered me head over Steve's glistening rod and picked up where Brad left off. "Let us know right before you cum," said Brad. After trading off two or three times, Steve started to gasp. "I'm c, ... I'm c, ... I'm cumming," he managed to blurt out. We acted quickly. Brad withdrew the adolescent penis from his mouth and took a firm grasp on its base. As soon as his lips cleared, I began jacking Steve just under his cock head, where most boys are sensitive. I put my free hand behind Steve's balls so that I could feel the convulsions of the muscles that would expel his semen. We felt his cock harden measurably, then the first wad flew into the air. His cock was pointing almost straight up, so the gob rose nearly eighteen inches before falling back on Steve's stomach. The succeeding shots were each lower until finally his hot cum just dribbled over my hand. I released his cock and licked his sperm from my hand, making sure he saw me do it. Meanwhile Brad licked the cream from Steve's cock head. Apparently Steve's impression of Old Faithful surprised even him. I licked the sperm from his stomach and otherwise cleaned him up. "Oh, God," said Steve. Brad and I snuggled up to Steve, one under each of his arms. Steve's underarm hair was matted with sweat. Unsure, he clumsily cradled us in his arms, not sure he wanted to do it. "So you had fun?" I asked. "Yeah, that was so cool." "How did you find out about the arcade," Brad asked. He was always into market research. "A guy on my team told me. I said I needed a girlfriend since I was tired of whacking off. You know, just locker room talk. I'm a virgin, and I've never got past second base with a girl. So he says he knows a place where I can get a blow job. At first I didn't know it was guys sucking cocks. When he told me I almost hit him. But he said if you're getting a blow job it really didn't matter if you were getting from a girl or a guy. I almost didn't go with you." "I suppose that means you probably won't be sucking our cocks," I said. Steve looked crestfallen. "Don't worry about it," I said before he could answer. "Brad and I can do each other. Besides, if you'd rather have a girlfriend, that's cool with us. But until you get one, we'll suck you anytime you want." "Yeah, and you don't have time to do anything more." "Shit, your're right," he said, leaping out of bed. His soft cock looked beautiful. I like older boys for sex sometimes because they had cocks like men and faces like boys. He pulled on his undershorts and scrambled for the rest of his clothes. "There's usually somebody at the arcade," Brad said. "What you do is play a video game and stand back from it a little. Then grab your crotch like you're adjusting yourself." "Like this?" Steve demonstrated. "Yeah, but not so obvious." "Okay. My friend just told me about the foot thing." "That's how we answer." "Okay. Thanks a million, guys." Steve closed the door behind him. "Shit, was he nervous or what?" I said. "No kidding. I didn't think he was a first-timer when he gave me the foot." "He'll be all right," I said. "Unless he jumps off a bridge 'cause now he's afraid he might be gay." "He wasn't gay, just REALLY horny." "Come to think of it, I'm really horny." "Yeah, me too," said Brad. There was only one thing to do, and we commenced doing it. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 6 I took Brad's cock into my mouth, though not with as much pomp as I had Steve. Brad and I were old hands at this. His cock was already slimy with precum. Blowing other guys made Brad really horny, and when he got horny he made about as much precum as most guys do regular cum. I savored the salty, slimy taste of the boy's precum as I vigorously worked his cock with my lips and tongue. On the downstroke my nose buried itself in Brad's luscious red pubic hair and relished in the boy-sweat odor that gathered there. "Lemme suck you too," said Brad. I wheeled around on my hands and knees, Brad's dick still in my mouth, until I was straddling his head. 69 isn't my favorite position because then I don't get to use my tongue on the underside of the boy's cock. But we were so horny it really didn't matter. I felt his warm, wet lips around my cock and the ministrations of a practiced tongue on my young member. My nose pressed against Brad's balls on the downstroke now. Being on top meant I was responsible for most of the movement. Although Brad and I hadn't had sex together since April or so, we knew each other's sensitivities well. We had a rhythm going in a few seconds. Our stomachs rubbed against each other, sticking slightly because of the sweat that was accumulating. "Mmmf," said Brad around my cock. I knew instinctively he was warning me of his impending climax. Brad's semen was known to flow forcefully and copiously. The first blast entered my mouth a few seconds later. His crotch convulsed a dozen times, but I was able to keep up. I finished the last few of my mouth strokes just as my own orgasm began. "Here it comes," I said, letting Brad's cock drop to his belly with a wet slap. Brad's hands, which had been clasped around my lower back, moved to my balls and crotch so that he could feel the spasms of my orgasm. I shot six or eight times, and Brad easily took my whole load. I immediately rolled off of him and turned so that my head was at the right end of the bed. We lay naked together, panting for a few minutes in the diminishing glow of climax. "You haven't lost your touch," said Brad. "Thanks. Neither have you. You could be a fireman when you grow up. All you'd have to do is jack off on the fire." Brad giggled at that. "I think I'm gonna take a nap," he said. "Sounds good," I agreed. We pulled the covers out from under us and got underneath them. Brad's body was warm against mine. He wasn't into cuddling, and neither was I, really, but we enjoyed being naked together under the blanket and feeling warm, smooth skin next to us. Brad turned on his side and I turned the other way and dozed off. When I awoke my legs were tangled up in Brad's. He had rolled the other way and was now "spooning" me a little bit. I could feel his soft cock and pubic hair against my ass. The clock on the wall said it was still early in the afternoon. I moved a bit and Brad stirred, then stretched. "Get away from me, you faggot," he said sarcastically, pushing me away from him. "Hey, you're the one trying to hump me here," I said. Neither one of us was into anal sex. I know some of the boys in the arcade who did it for money took cocks up their asses, but we always thought it was dirty. Eric's finger in my ass had felt awfully good, though, and I enjoyed playing with my own ass sometimes. But it was something in the To Be Tried Later category. "I gotta pee," said Brad, climbing out of bed. He didn't bother closing the bathroom door and was fully visible as a long stream of piss arched from his teen cock to the toilet bowl. He came back and sat down on top of the bed. His cock lay limp against his thigh. "What do you want to do now?" he asked. "I dunno." "Maybe my sister got videos last night," he said. He came back from her bedroom with two videos. "Take your pick," he said. "'Sleepless in Seattle' or 'Casper'." He made a finger-in-the-throat gesture after "Sleepless in Seattle," so the choice was really moot. Brad's VCR was cruddy because it's all his mom could afford. The television was actually quite good -- they'd won it in a raffle at church. I decided to call home. "Is Mom there?" I asked Becky when she answered. She wasn't. "Okay, just tell her I'm at Brad's house, and we're watching a movie. I'll be home in three hours or so." It turned out to be a better movie than I expected. It was funny, and Brad had a contagious laugh. We put a bag of Doritos and a 2-liter El Cheapo soft drink between us. We drank from the bottle. (When you share semen on a regular basis, drinking someone else's backwash just doesn't seem like a big deal.) It was nice just sitting naked with a friend and watching a movie. "Do you think she's cute?" asked Brad, talking about Christina Ricci, the girl star. "I guess. I keep looking at her and seeing Wednesday Addams." "Do you think you'd ever want to do it with a girl?" he asked. "Sure," I said. "I mean, I'd like to know what it feels like." "Me too, I think," said Brad. "I wouldn't mind doing it with her. I think she's kinda cute." We continued watching in silence broken only by crunching chips. Then at the end, Casper became a tangible person for a brief time. "Oh my God," we both whispered in unison. The boy playing the real Casper was a blond godlet, tall and slender. His face was angelic. "I'd love to get into his pants," said Brad. He was always so poetic about these things. Our cocks started the erection process simultaneously. By the end of the scene we were in full, raging glory. Brad started jacking off. I was watching the credits to see who the boy was. As soon as his name -- Devon Sawa -- scrolled across the screen I joined Brad's self-stimulation. Devon seemed like a really sexy name. Brad got to his knees, pumping with a vengeance. I did too, and knelt facing him a couple of feet away. He put his left hand on my shoulder and I followed suit. Our gazes were fixed on our penises as we each pushed toward another climax. Brad's hips were bucking in time with his strokes. The head of his cock repeatedly disappeared into his closed fist, only to re-emerge an instant later, rocketing from between his thumb and forefinger covered in precum. "Ohh," he gasped as the first blast of cum hit my chest. Only one or two more globs came out. Not to be outdone, I aimed my teen cock at Brad's chest and painted both his tiny nipples with my own boycream. Brad licked his own cum from my chest, and when he was done I did the same for him, starting low to pick up the trails as it slid down his freckled young flesh. "I better go," I said when we had sufficiently recovered. "Yeah," said Brad. "I'm supposed to have this place cleaned up when everyone gets home." "Want some help?" "Nah, it won't take long," he said, pulling on his underpants. "I just don't want to do it." His limp cock made a cute bulge in the tight cotton. I put my own clothes on and helped Brad straighten the bed out. My cock was aching dully from its workout this afternoon. "I'll see you around," I said, and left. The air was springtime cool. It was no longer too cool for shorts, and I was able to ogle the legs of a few cute boys on the way to the bus stop. The bus ride home took only twenty minutes instead of the usual half hour. Traffic was light, and there were few passengers on the bus. "Where have you been, young man?" asked Mom when I got home. "At Brad's," I said. "Didn't you get the message?" "No." "Becky!" I hollered. "What?" came the faint answer from the family room downstairs. It was followed by the sound of running feet. "Didn't you tell Mom where I was?" I said, exasperated. "I left a Post-it on the fridge," she said, pointing. "It isn't here now." A minute of searching discovered it had fallen off and slid under a cabinet. "I get nervous when you go downtown alone," said Mom. "Don't worry, Brad knows the safe places." "I know. I'm just being the mother. Anyway, this Tuesday I'll be having dinner with a client and Becky will be at Sharon's for her slumber party. That means you only have to fix dinner for yourself." Cool, I thought. I can slip down to the arcade for an hour or so. "I thought since the weather was so warm we might have a picnic tomorrow in the park." "Can I invite Sharon?" asked Becky immediately. "Yes. Would you like to invite someone, Josh?" "I suppose," I said. I really didn't have a lot of friends in the neighborhood. Most of the kids my age lived in the newer developments. Our neighborhood was mostly young yuppies. "How about Jeff?" she asked. It sounded good to me, although we hadn't really done anything together for many months. "Jeff," I said on the phone when he answered. "You doing anything tomorrow?" "Not much. There's a baseball game on, but I'm not that interested in it." "My mom's taking us on a picnic in the park. You wanna come too?" "Sure." "Do you want to bring ..." I blanked for a minute on his girlfriend's name. "I don't think so," said Jeff without waiting for me to finish. "She kinda dumped me." "Really?" I asked incredulously. "What do you mean 'kinda?'" "She just said she thought we were spending too much time together." "That sucks." "Yeah. What time tomorrow?" "One o'clock. We'll pick you up." The plot was thickening. It was possible that Jeff now had no sex partner. It was further possible that whatever sex he'd had with what's-her-name had been less exciting than sex with me had been. (I remembered his toe-curling orgasms with my mouth around his cock.) It was even further possible that he'd be amenable to re-opening our torrid love affair. Okay, not really likely, but still possible. I'd just have to wait and see. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 7 It turned out to be the perfect day for a picnic. The park was only a mile or so from home, but we drove there anyway so we wouldn't have to carry the stuff. Jeff brought a Frisbee and a Nerf football. He wore a loose T-shirt and thin, onion-skin shorts with baggy legs. If he held his legs right and you were in the right place, you could see all the way up them to his briefs. And the manly bulge inside of them. Of course that was probably his intent, but I didn't know if he was coming on to me or just trying to drive me crazy. Sharon was Becky's hyperactive little friend. I don't know if she really was hyperactive, but she was genuinely fast-moving. You couldn't get her to stand still for ten minutes. She was Becky's age, but was what parents called an "early bloomer." She had little perky tits that poked spikes in her shirt. Her parents could not convince her to wear a bra. Her hips had also begun to flare in the manner of older women. And she was always talking about the latest boy she thought was really cute. Of course, I tended to think the same boys were cute, but I couldn't say anything. At the moment the giggling and whispers from the back of the car seemed to suggest she found Jeff cute. Mom outdid herself on the picnic lunch. She prepared sandwiches of every kind, deviled eggs, chips, salsa, soda pop. There was plenty of food. We languished on the blanket beside our table for half an hour to start the digesting process. Sharon and Becky ran off to do who knows what. Mom and Jeff and I threw the Frisbee around for a bit, then Mom decided she was going to go read her book. Jeff and I continued with the Frisbee for a while. Jeff knew that Frisbee was one of the few physical activities I did better than most. I wasn't a total klutz, just not athletic. Then he brought out the football. "I'm going to teach you to play this game if it kills us both," he said. I knew the basic rules for football, but not the unwritten rules for touch football with short fields and few players. Besides, I really couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with a football. And it hurt to catch the damn thing. That's why Jeff had the Nerf. Our playing carried us to different meadows in the park. Jeff was a tantalizing vision. His new teenage musculature was filling his body in nicely. We had taken off our shirts, not because it was so hot but because it was warm enough to do so after a long winter. His chest was lean, but sculptured with muscle. The thin patches of hair under his arms and the fuzz on his ankles bespoke his budding manhood. His stomach was no longer the smooth, featureless wall of boy's flesh, but hard muscle with delicate peaks and valleys. His nipples were large and dark. His face was right out of a teen idol magazine, with a trendy haircut. His legs were long and delicately shaped, with just the right balance between power and grace. Every time my hands fell on him to "tackle" him I relished the brief contact. And when he touched me I wanted him to keep his hands there just a little longer. On one particular play Jeff was doing a typically good job of evading my defense (we'd stopped keeping score), but I surprised him with a suicidal lunge. In addition to planting the required two hands for downing him, my momentum sent us both crashing to the ground. I landed on top of him. We were both unhurt, but our fatigue kept us from standing immediately. Then as we eventually stirred, I identified the bulge pressing on my chest. Jeff had an erection, a full-bore, unmitigated woodie. I looked at him quizzically and he just smiled. "Wearing these shorts usually gives me a stiffie," he said. "I figured you wouldn't mind, since you've been gawking up them all afternoon." "I didn't mean to," I said, which was a lie. I hadn't meant for him to notice, but my visual journeys up his thighs were carefully planned. "That's okay. I knew you'd get a kick out of them." "So you just wore them to see if I'd look up them." "Not really. I was pretty sure you'd want to look up them. I just thought I'd do something nice." I rolled off of him and we both sat up. Little bits of leaves and grass were stuck to our sweaty torsos. I was searching for something to say, something to express what I was feeling. But so many emotions were fighting for attention that all I could manage was staring at the ground. "That's a first," he continued. "What?" "Isn't the straight guy supposed to be uncomfortable talking with the gay guy?" That broke the ice. I laughed. "Well, you are still gay, aren't you?" he asked. "I suppose so," I responded. "Have you had sex with girls?" he asked. "No." "Have you had sex with guys?" he continued. "Yeah." "Sounds gay to me," he said. Not an accusation, merely a statement of fact. "That doesn't bother you?" I asked. "Not really. I mean, I don't go telling everyone that you're gay." "What DO you go around telling everyone?" "It doesn't come up. Most of the people I hang out with now are only interested in themselves anyway. They wouldn't be interested." "Besides," I reminded him. "If you did tell them I was gay, you'd probably have to tell them how you knew that." "Yeah," he said. Then he imitated a Chinese accent. "Small matter of large secret." "Did you have sex with ...?" "Susan? Sort of. I guess I had about as much sex with her as I had with you." I laughed. "Then doesn't that make you bisexual?" "I guess you're right." "What did you two do together?" "Not much. She was kind of nervous." "You didn't, like, put it in her, did you?" I asked tentatively. "No, she wouldn't let me. She was 'saving it for marriage,'" he said, mimicking a blonde girl accent. "But she did let me put my finger in her. Once." "What was it like?" "Warm and wet, like putting your finger in someone's mouth, only tighter." "Did she ever suck your dick?" "No, but she kissed it once. She was afraid to suck it. And she thought sperm was gross." "Well, it is," I said. "If you're not used to it." "She definitely wasn't used to it. She jacked me off a couple of times, but she always had to run and wash the cum off her hand. Real romantic. She did have nice tits, though, and she let me feel those whenever I wanted to." "What did her tits feel like?" I asked. My own cock was now in full erection, and in my jeans it had to be obvious. "Like yours, only bigger," said Jeff with a smile. "I see your engine is revved," he said. "Yeah," I said. "I don't suppose there's any chance of, um, taking care of these problems." "Do you mean what I think you mean?" said Jeff. "No," I countered. "Forget I said it." "Hey," said Jeff. His tone was suddenly serious. I looked up at him. "We shared something really special together a long time ago," he said. "We probably shouldn't have done it, but we did, and we both enjoyed it. We can't change what happened or how it made us feel." "How did you feel?" "I don't know," he said. "That's partly why I didn't want to do it again. I didn't want to be gay. I like girls. I want to have sex with them. They turn me on. But ... " and then he paused. "But I turn you on too," I suggested. "Yes," he said. "But in a different way. You sucked my cock. Until then nobody had ever done that. And nobody has done it since. I really liked it when you did that, but every time you did I pretended you were a girl. I closed my eyes and thought of a sexy girl with big tits and a tight pussy, sucking on my cock. I was always guilty when I opened my eyes and it was you." "Why guilty?" "Because you genuinely wanted to have sex with me. I didn't really want to have sex with you. I just wanted sex. And you would do things others didn't. I was taking advantage of you by giving you gay sex when I really wanted a girl." "So what you're saying, basically," I said. "Is that you only had sex with me because you were really horny, and you didn't really have any physical attraction to me." "Yeah, I suppose so," he said, looking at the ground. "I can live with that," I said nonchalantly. "What?" He looked up. "I said, that never bothered me. You were a really cool guy, and I was happy that you paid any attention to me at all. Remember when I told those guys I'd seen a girl giving you a blow job?" "Yeah." "I said that because I knew you needed to be straight. We're still friends, even if you want sex with girls and I want sex with guys. And partly because ... I'm not sure I'm gay." Jeff said nothing, but was visibly surprised. "I mean," I continued. "I like having sex with guys, and I'm attracted to them, but I think I might like having sex with a girl, too." "So why don't you?" he asked. "It's not that easy for me. I don't know how to act around girls. It would feel really weird asking a girl to have sex with me. I know how guys think. I know what makes them horny. I know what parts of their body to stimulate--" "Yeah," laughed Jeff. "I remember." "The point is," I said. "I started having sex with guys because my first exposure to sex was with guys. And that's what I think is fun now." "Would you have sex with a girl if she offered?" "Yeah," I said. "But who's going to offer?" "You never know. Girls think about sex, too. They just think about it differently than guys. And they get horny, but in different ways." "Would you ever have sex with a guy again?" I asked. "I don't know," said Jeff. "Was that an offer?" "It might be," I said. "I was just curious." "It depends on what kind of sex, I guess," he said. "I don't really want some guy ramming his cock up my ass." "I don't either," I said. "Maybe we aren't so different." "No," he said. "I think we're pretty much the same. Horny." We both laughed. "I'm gonna cream my pants if we talk about this any longer," he continued. "Wanna jack off?" I asked. "You mean together?" he asked in return. "Sure," I said. "Like in the good ol' days." "I suppose so," he said. We stood up and walked to the nearby bushes that bordered the meadow. They were thick enough to hide our activities. I unbuttoned my jeans and slipped them over my hips. My cock bobbed up erect from my dark brown pubic bush. "You've grown some," noted Jeff, who was pulling his waistband down in front. His own member emerged, leaving a trail of precum. "So have you," I returned. His cock was probably six inches. Not bad for a fourteen-year-old. We began pumping, kneeling a few feet apart. I had already committed to not making any "moves" for him. But I was not hiding the fact that watching Jeff masturbate was the key turn-on for me. And he took reciprocal interest in my operation too. Thankfully it didn't take us long to climax. We'd each improved on cum-producing ability too. Jeff turned slightly and hosed down the bushes around us. Gobs of sticky cum dripped to the ground from the leaves. I followed suit, blasting my load up into the air and onto the ground next to Jeff. He was genuinely impressed. Our eyes met. We'd jacked off as friends, and it was exhilarating for both of us. We'd always be friends, no matter who we were having sex with or what anybody else said. We had a deep mutual respect that went farther than petty stereotypes. The mood was broken by the sound of running feet crashing through the bushes not more than thirty feet away. I thought it was some kind of animal until I heard the tell-tale giggle of Becky's friend Sharon. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 8 "Fuck!" whispered Jeff as he quickly pulled his shorts back on. His cock was flipped upward so quickly that a stream of residual cum flew from the tip and left a thin trail up my stomach and chest. I would have made some sarcastic comment, but I was too busy fastening my own clothing. We retrieved our shirts and put them on. Regardless of what might happen next, we felt it was important to confront it fully clothed. "Was that your sister?" asked Jeff, as we ran back toward the blanket. "Yeah," I said, panting to keep up with Jeff. "Did they see us?" "They must have." "Will she tell?" "Hell if I know," I said. "She likes gossip." "Shit. If my mom finds out I was jerking off, she'll have a total meltdown. How about yours?" "Probably," I said, just to make him comfortable. Actually, I'm pretty sure Mom would have said "That's your business, dear." We stopped talking to save breath. I could see Mom in the distance, reading under the tree. The girls were nowhere in sight. Bad news. Mom looked up as we approached. We slowed to avoid the appearance of urgency. "Where have you two been?" she asked, not suspiciously but merely interested. "Playing football over there," I said and pointed to the other meadows. "I think we should probably go soon," said Mom. "Where are the girls?" "I think they'll be along soon," I said. Our cocks, thankfully, had been rendered flaccid by the long run back. But Jeff's cum was leaking through the flimsy fabric of his shorts. He pulled the front of his shirt over it, but it was spreading and would soon be visible again. The girls appeared from the nearby bike trail, which ran near the opposite edge of the woods. The look on their faces told me enough. They'd seen us, and they'd seen what we were doing. "Get your stuff," said Mom. "It's time to go." Any minute, I thought, and they'll see the spot on Jeff's crotch. And Becky'll say something, and then Mom will see it. I had to think. Jeff had his hands in front of his shorts, but that would be obvious too. Mom was directing the gathering of the picnic stuff. I picked up the water jug. Then my plan formulated. I unscrewed the nozzle of the bottle and looked at Jeff. He saw what I was doing and nodded curtly. With a rebel yell I doused him with the contents of the jug, making sure his shorts were thoroughly drenched. "Okay, you two!" said Mom. "Enough of that." She spread the picnic blanket on the seat for Jeff to sit on. We rode most of the way home in silence. "Did you all have fun?" she asked eventually. "Yeah," said Jeff and I in unison. "We had LOTS of fun," said Becky from the back seat. She and Sharon giggled. "What did you do?" asked Mom. "Just walked through the woods," said Becky. "Did you see anything interesting?" asked Mom. Jeff looked at me with panic. "Yeah," answered Becky. Sharon giggled. "We saw two woodpeckers," she said, barely able to contain her mirth. "What's so funny?" asked Mom. I turned and fixed Becky with a stern glare. I sent her a thought message: If you tell, I'll make your life miserable. "Sharon's making faces at me," said Becky. That satisfied Mom. Becky and I avoided each other most of the night. I called Jeff. "Did she tell?" asked Jeff. "I don't think so." "What are we gonna do?" "Let's suppose she told my mom. That isn't a problem." "Why not?" "Because my mom doesn't care about other people having sex." "She TOLD you that?" "Yeah," I said. "What's wrong with that?" "My mom blushes when anyone says anything about sex." "I don't think my mom would spread it around." "Okay, then we're safe." "Not really," I said. "If Sharon tells her mom, or Becky tells someone else, it could get out." "Great. I'm fucked," said Jeff. "Why don't you just tell Becky not to blab it?" "Because she's my sister. You can't ask your sister for that kind of favor." Jeff was an only child. "I promise, I'll think of some way to fix it." I plopped down on my bed to do my homework. Halfway through English I saw Becky pass my door. She looked in, then looked away quickly. I went downstairs for a glass of milk. "You need a haircut," said Mom. "I do not." That's the nice thing about having curly hair. You can't comb it, and it looks the same whether it's long or short. "Don't you want short hair for summer?" she asked. "It's the same, long or short," I said. "Well, you should get it cut for school next year," she said. "You don't want to go to your first day of high school looking like a sheepdog." It was nearly eleven o'clock before I got all my homework done. I went in to the bathroom to take a shower. Stripping naked, I looked at myself in the mirror. I used to be scrawny, but thanks to the miracle of puberty I was starting to get a real body. My chest was still flat and largely unpopulated with muscle. If I turned sideways I could see the faintest shadow between my pecs. But my shoulders were broadening, and that made up for it. Mom was right, I did need a haircut. My hair was dark brown and curly, like a good Jewish boy's hair should be, but not THAT curly. It sort of fell over the sides of my head in a mop that stopped just under my ears. I turned to look at the back, and took a second to admire my cute little ass. I clenched the cheeks to make it look smaller. Then I climbed onto the countertop to see it in the big mirror. I swayed my back and spread my legs as far as the sinktop would allow, trying to mimic the poses I'd seen in my magazines. My ballsack was visible, like the guys in the magazines, and I stroked it from behind. My cock was getting hard now, and I knew if I kept it up I'd be into another masturbation session. I climbed off the counter and tried different poses with my legs. They were pretty skinny legs, but what could I expect? I was simply not a muscular guy. My detailed visual inspection of Jeff came to mind. I raised my arm and leaned forward to see my armpit in the mirror. Yes, there it was. A thin, almost imperceptible patch of dark hair. I rubbed my fingertips through it. You couldn't tell it was there by feeling it, but it was visible if you got a good enough look. I marked this off on the mental puberty checklist I was keeping: "armpit hair, age 14 years, six months." I looked good with an erection, I decided. Turning sideways I saw the angle it formed with my body, and now that it was pushing six inches it looked quite nice sticking out from my crotch. My pubic hair was still confined to the top of my groin, but a few hairs had migrated down the sides of my balls. I had passed the point of no return now, so in the shower I soaped up my cock and relieved myself onto the shower curtain, watching the white cum mix with soap and slide down the drain. After drying off I headed to my room. Walking in wearing nothing but a towel, I was about to bare everything when I noticed Becky sitting on my bed. "Geez!" I said, reinforcing the knot holding my towel in place. "I saw you today," said Becky ominously. "I know," I responded. "Now will you get out, please?" "I saw Jeff, too." "I know. I was there. Now get out." "Sharon saw it too." "I'm sure she did." I was ready to call for Mom. "Was that how guys play with themselves?" she asked. "Yes," I hissed. "Now get out before I call Mom." "Does Mom know you play with yourself?" she asked. "Yes," I responded, hoping to defuse her. "I'll bet she doesn't. I'll bet Jeff's mom doesn't know either." "Look, you little spy, that's none of your business." She was looking at my towel, maybe imagining what was underneat it. "It is now," she said impishly, getting up and walking to the door. Fuck, I thought as I closed the door after her. Monday was a hard day at school. Toward the end of the year all the teachers realize how far behind they are, and they give you extra homework. It took all Monday night to finish everything. Becky was at Sharon's house. Every second she wasn't in my sight worried me. Who was she talking to, and what was she saying. Jeff called twice that night. I wasn't worried immediately. Becky would wait until it was the right time to play her card. I lay awake in bed, the covers down, naked and spread-eagled. The moonlight streaming through the venetian blinds made an interesting parallel effect on my nude body. Very artistic. They were perfectly horizontal. My erect cock was exactly perpendicular to them. Hormones raced like electricity through my body. I was thinking of Jeff, and how it would feel to lie naked with him in unabashed sex. He'd never go for it, I thought. I'd slept with only three boys, as opposed to just using the bed for sex. Brad was one of them. It felt good, lying next to another boy. Jeff's words came back to me: I don't want some guy fucking me in the ass. Me neither. Was that true? I climbed out of bed. In the clutter of my room was a screwdriver I'd been using. Its handle was smooth, hard plastic. About the size of my erect cock, I noticed. Back in bed, I coated the screwdriver with petrolatum. Then I pulled up my legs in the classic "fuck me" position. Reaching around, I placed the handle against my puckered anus and shoved. The first bit was the hardest, as my sphincter opened to allow the tool (I giggled at the pun) to penetrate. I slid it in, inch by inch, noting the feeling of fullness. At the constriction near the hilt my sphincter closed slightly; a good stopping place. I manipulated the shank, feeling with fascination the handle moving deep inside my body. I began to stroke my cock in the customary way. The screwdriver dildo filled me wonderfully. As my climax neared I knew instinctively it was going to be a big one. I pumped hard, squeezing my cock as never before. My crotch muscles, for the first time having something to press against, fired with unprecedented vigor. The handle pressed against the sensitive spot inside and took my orgasm to a new level of pleasure. My cum hit the wall behind my head with an audible splat. The other wads landed in my hair and across my face and chest, thankfully sparing my eyes. (Brad got cum in his eyes once, and I learned from his mistake.) I slowly pulled the screwdriver from my quivering asshole, feeling my anus close together slowly behind it. I wrapped it in tissue until morning, and did my best to clean up the spewed cum from my hair and body. Then I slept the best night I ever had. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 9 Jeff met me at the bus stop Tuesday morning. "Has she told anyone yet?" he asked. "Not that I know of," I responded. "And I think we're safe for now." "Maybe you are," he said. "This is driving me fucking crazy." "How do you know your mom will have a cow?" I asked. "She can't be that dumb. The whole world whacks off, you know." "I got grounded for kissing Susan," he said. "Just kissing. If she'd caught us ten minutes later I think she would have chopped off my dick right there and then." "You're exaggerating." "The hell I am." "What about your dad? What will he do?" "I don't think he'd care much. He'd just tell me it's a waste of time." Jeez, I thought. No wonder you're an only child. I was almost too tired after school to go to the arcade. But I figured I ought to stop by. Manny was the only sex boy there. He was one who did it for money. The deal was that anyone under 18 belonged to us, the guys who did it occasionally for fun, and the ones over 18 belonged to the hustlers. As far as I knew, Manny made his living in the arcade. I didn't know much about him. His real name was Manuel Ortiz. He was as fair-skinned as Hispanics come. His mother, I was pretty sure, was a prostitute on the west end of town. He was twelve, and always dressed the same way. They were probably the only clothes he had. His jeans were at least one size too small, but in his business the tighter the better, and his looked like they'd been spray-painted onto him. He wore no underwear, the lines would have been visible. His cock, rather large for a twelve-year-old (four and three-quarters inches, according to the Dick-O-Meter), was clearly outlined. His Oakland Raiders T-shirt and jean jacket were clean but tattered, having seen far too much wear. He wore his baseball cap backwards, concealing his greasy black hair under worn canvas. His face was angelic, but his eyes far too old for his age. "Yo Manny," I said. "Hey Josh, how's it hangin' man?" "Low as ever. How's life?" Meaning, of course, how's business. "Slow. Too many SPs." In our language that meant "skate punks." Manny was one of the boys who took it up the ass when needed. He had to. His livelihood depended on doing what his customer wanted, or what his customer could afford. "One of your guys came in earlier," he said. "City kid?" "Nah, he was definitely a Burb." Not Evan. "How long ago?" "About half an hour. He might be back." "Yeah. Want some pizza?" I asked. Manny didn't take handouts or charity gifts. But I convinced him that even filthy rich people share drinks or meals and pay for each other's stuff. It was part of being friends. "Sure, man," he answered. We sat in the food court. Manny was trying hard not to be too obvious wolfing down the pizza and Coke. Mom was generous with my allowance, and I usually felt like being generous myself. I'd bought him three slices and a large drink, and of course I had to buy some for myself so that it wouldn't look like charity. I toyed with the idea of asking him what it felt like to have a cock up his ass, but it was too much a breach of our tenuous friendship. We weren't really friends. We weren't business partners. I came to the arcade for pleasure, to satisfy the strong needs that couldn't be satisfied anywhere else. Manny came to the arcade to survive. Sex was merely the means of accomplishing that. Did he enjoy sex with his customers? I didn't dare ask. I really didn't want to know. We walked slowly back to the arcade, pausing to admire the opulence of the mall's offerings. The people who shopped here lived in a world I knew only a little about. And it was thoroughly alien to Manny. Back in the arcade I slipped a quarter into the same damn Mortal Kombat game I always played. It just happened to be situated where I could see the door. Manny, perpetually short on quarters, usually watched other kids play. I could see him, near the pinball game. The player was a well-dressed office type with slicked back hair. His foot was against Manny's. Manny stood to the side of the game. In the dim light it appeared the man was working the flipper button. But as I concentrated I saw the man fondling Manny's bulge with the back of his hands. Rubbing up and down, with Manny pressing back. Message received and understood. The man threw his hands up as his last ball dropped into the gutter. He gathered his thin briefcase and headed for the door. Manny followed a few steps behind, taking a slightly different route to avoid suspicion. Manny might go home with an ass full of cum, I thought, but not hungry. Mortal Kombat was kicking my ass again when I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Steve standing beside me. "Hi," I said. "Hi." He was nervous like he was before. "I came earlier but nobody was here." "There isn't always someone here," I pointed out. "We do have lives." "I brought a friend," he said. "Where is he?" I asked, looking around. "Out there," said Steve and pointed to the mall atrium. "What's the deal? Is he afraid to come in to a video arcade?" "Well, sort of. He isn't sure he wants to do this. And frankly, he doesn't believe me." "What's there not to believe?" I asked. Steve looked around before answering. "He doesn't believe there are young guys here who ... you know ... do what you guys do." "Let's go see him," I said. We left the arcade and met Steve's friend in the atrium. "This is," Steve began. "Sorry, what was your name again?" "Josh." "Yeah. Josh. This is Tony." Tony was compact, about my height, but obviously older. He looked fifteen or sixteen, about the same age as Steve. His face was clear and intense, with straight dark hair parted on the middle and falling just below his ears. His brows were thick, but did not meet in the middle. He was wearing loose jeans and a button-down shirt, untucked so that the front hid his crotch. His shoes were expensive Nikes. His arms were devoid of even a little hair, and although he was not inhumanly muscular they hinted of wiry strength. "He's on the sophomore wrestling team," continued Steve. "Cool," I said. "Now we just have to find a place to go." "That's all taken care of," said Steve. "Follow Tony." Tony led us through the atrium out to the parking garage. I'd done sex there before, but it wasn't a very private place. Yes, there were lots of nooks and crannies and hidden places, but there were a lot of people. We wound down into the subterranean depths. The cars were fewer and far between. At the bottommost level it was dark and quiet. Tony stopped beside a large, customized van parked in an out-of-the-way corner. "This is yours?" I asked. "It's my mother's," answered Tony. He unlocked the side door and we stepped into the plush luxury of the van's interior. The windows were equipped with venetian blinds which were already closed. The rear of the van was taken up by a large bed on which Steve sat and started unbuttoning his shirt. "So you really suck other guys' cocks?" he asked. "Yeah," I answered sheepishly. "Bullshit," he challenged. I put my hand on Steve's bulging basket. "I've already sucked Steve's once," I said. "How come you're messing with this faggot shit, Steve?" asked Tony. "Have you ever had a blow job?" asked Steve. "Sure, lots of times." "Bullshit," said Steve. "And you know it. You're just as virgin as I am. You've never touched pussy and no girl's ever touched your dick." "What if I told you Catherine and I are doing it?" "Bullshit," said Steve again. "Catherine's legs are welded together at the knees. She thinks Calvin Klein ads are immoral." Tony seemed to deflate a bit. "Besides," continued Steve. "What's the difference between getting a blow job from a guy and from a girl? A mouth is a mouth." "It's still a faggotty thing to do." "Only if you want to think of it like that. I like thinking of it as I'm getting blown and you're not." This got Tony's attention. This and the fact that Steve and I were both nude and erect. "Okay, you little cocksucker," said Tony. "Do it." I didn't need encouragement. I sat next to Steve and leaned over so that I could suck him without obstructing Tony's view. I lathered up Steve's cock head with my tongue before inching down his shaft. Steve's stomach pressed against my ear and undulated in and out with his breathing, which was growing heavier. "Sonovabitch," muttered Tony. Steve turned so that he was laying down sideways to Tony. I followed him and sat between his thighs so that I could get my tongue on the underside of the boy's hot prick. It also let me jerk myself a bit while sucking. Tony, sitting in one of the chairs turned backwards, at first tried avoiding his crotch. But as my slurping progressed and Steve's moans became more frequent, Tony couldn't leave himself alone. Initially he fondled himself through the shirt and pants. Then he pulled up the shirt and fondled himself more obviously. His pants were too loose for me to see the extent of his arousal, but I was laying money on full erection. "It's not faggotty to jerk off, Tony," said Steve between moans. Tony said nothing, but unzipped his pants. He was wearing tight black bikinis for underwear. "Don't laugh at my underwear," warned Tony, half serious. But he needn't have worried. My own cock leapt at the sight of his six-plus inch sexrod as he released it from the tight nylon. A dark bush of pubic hair surrounded it. Steve was producing copious amounts of precum, and soon I expected the real thing. Tony was stroking himself with the ease of one long accustomed to masturbation. Only his cock was visible; he kept his shirt on and his pants bunched around his hips. But he was clearly enjoying himself. Steve's hips were bucking uncontrollably, and I wondered what kind of motion was being transferred to the van that would be visible from the outside. "I'm almost there," he gasped. "Oh, yes. Oh, yes! Unngh!" He grunted from deep within his chest and grabbed my head. Torrents of hot sperm flew from his fleshy rod and coated my mouth and throat. Tony's eyes were wide in amazement at Steve's uninhibited fucking of my mouth. He was manhandling his rod with fury. I let Steve's cock slowly slide from my mouth. "Suck me," whispered Tony. "What?" I asked. "Suck me," he repeated. "Suck my dick." I knelt between his jean-clad legs and took his cock from his hands. He'd already generously coated it with spit and precum. It pulsed warmly and glistened in my hands. I took his cock into my mouth, just the head at first, and then more of the shaft. I admit I was teasing him a little bit, swirling my tongue around the throbbing hot flesh of his cockhead. "Oh, shit," said Tony. "Shit, that feels good." Steve turned on his side and rested his head on his hand to watch. His now limp cock dripped a bit of cum onto the mattress. I wanted to warn him, but my mouth was full. Really full. Tony seemed hung a bit larger than Steve, which was interesting since he was shorter. But I'd learned that penis size for boys didn't really correlate to age or body size. Tony continued panting, gasping syllables that sounded almost like words. I bobbed my head up and down in his lap. Then I decided to do something adventurous. I plunged my head down, taking every inch of the boy's cock. The teen cockhead filled the back of my throat, and I called on every ounce of will power not to gag. Nevertheless, the taste of pizza and come welled up in my throat as my stomach convulsed. In my efforts to keep my dinner down, I was milking Tony's rod with my throat muscles. My nose was buried deep in his pubic hair, and Tony arched up with such force that his pubic bone mashed my nose painfully. "Aaah!" he grunted in volume I was sure could be heard from outside. Then his cum, hot and creamy, blasted down my throat, far back where I couldn't taste it. But his pulsing penis filled every cubic inch I could muster. He spasmed for hours, it seemed, but after a few seconds he collapsed back in the seat. I was understandably eager to get his cock out of my throat. It slid out, covered with cum and spit. It was still large, even though it was growing flaccid. My shirt was wadded up nearby, and I used it to wipe a bit of the goop off his cock. Then I tucked it neatly in his skimpy black undershorts and carefully zipped his fly. Guys seem to worry when someone else is working their fly. "So now do you think it's faggotty?" asked Steve. "Who the fuck cares?" answered Tony in a raspy whisper. "I guarantee Catherine won't do that for you anytime soon," he said. Tony nodded his agreement. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 10 We all sat for a minute to recover. Except that I was still hard and horny. I felt a little silly sitting at their feet with a full-on erection jutting up between my thighs. "What time is it?" asked Tony. Then he reached back and pushed a button on the dashboard. The clock lit up. "I have to be home in about half an hour," he said. "We're going to have to take off pretty soon." "Where do you live?" Steve asked me. "Cascade Park," I said. "No shit?" said Steve. "We live right near there. What school do you go to?" "Cascade Middle School." "And you'll be going to Northridge High School next year, right?" "Yeah." "That's our school." There was an additional bond forged in that split second. We wouldn't be strangers searching for sex after this. We'd be buddies. Or so I hoped. "Are you going home now?" asked Tony. "I can drop you off anywhere you want up there." "Sure, thanks." I said. Steve noticed my erection. "Um, what do you want to do about ... ?" and pointed at my dick. "Lemme just finish jerking off," I said, resuming my pumping. "Unless one of you wants to try sucking it." Steve and Tony looked at each other with the "not me" expression. Tony was climbing up into the driver's seat. "I feel bad," said Steve. "That can't be much fun. I just don't think I could do it." "There's something else you could try," I said. "What?" "Here, sit up." He did as I told him. Then I had him sit back against the back wall and spread his legs. I sat between them, resting my back against his chest. "Now, jerk me off," I said. "You mean --" "Just reach around," I said, pulling his arm forward. "And play with me like you're playing with yourself." He put his hand gingerly on my cock, then with more boldness made a fist around it. "What the fuck are you doing?" asked Tony from the front seat. "Oh give me a break," said Steve. "He earned it. Besides, it's not like we're kissing or anything. It's just like playing with my own. Jeez, you're such a prude." And with that he pumped my cock with renewed vigor. His chest against my back was hot and sticky, our sweat blending together in an aromatic soup. His strong fist worked wonders on my cock. He even made it a point to capture the droplets of precum that appeared and add them to the mix of lubricants already present. Tony backed out of the parking stall and meandered to the street. We ducked down as he drove through the parking booth and re-emerged as we gained the street. As Tony drove the familiar route back to the north suburbs, Steve was bringing me to a passable climax. "Okay, here it comes," I said. "What do I do?" "Just squeeze harder," I said, preparing to cum. I forced us both to lean back so that the semen would land on my stomach instead of the van's upholstery. The orgasm felt better than most, lying in the warm but reluctant embrace of an older boy whose strong arms enveloped me. I would have liked to stay there, dozing off to sleep with our breathing in unison, but Steve had already stretched his boldness and reputation to the limit. I stood up and reached for my shirt. Steve was mostly erect again. I'd felt it against my back, and relished its pressure against my skin. "You'll have to take care of that on your own," I said. "No problem," he responded. I mopped up my stomach and then handed the shirt to Steve so that he could wipe his hand. We sat side by side, putting our clothes back on. We were fully dressed by the time we got to my house. I directed Tony to our house. "I live just over that hill," said Steve, indicating the bluff that separated our development from the next. "See you around," I said. "Hey," said Tony as I turned back to close the door. "I was kind of jerk back there," he said with the discomfort of someone unused to apologizing for his behavior. "Don't worry," I said. "It's not an unusual response." "Yeah, but then you went and did something totally cool for me. You could have told me to fuck off, but instead you sucked me dry. I just wanted to say ... sorry." "Don't worry about it," I repeated. "Hang on a second," said Steve to Tony. He jumped out and pulled me out of Tony's earshot. "Tony comes from an Italian family. They have this stud reputation he thinks he has to live up to. If anyone found out he'd let another guy suck his cock, well, I'd hate to see what that'd do to him." "Don't worry about me," I said. "I don't tell anybody about what goes on. And neither does Brad. It's part of the deal. I don't tell if you don't. We all stay out of trouble." He climbed back in the van and slid the door shut. Tony backed out of the driveway and they both waved before driving off. I waved back. Mom's note said she might not be back until after midnight. They were wining and dining a client, and might take him to a play and then out for drinks. Becky wasn't there. She was at Sharon's at some stupid girl slumber party. The bilious taste in the back of my throat made dinner uninviting. But I figured I'd soon be hungry again anyway. I took a shower. As I was drying, the doorbell rang. The bathroom window overlooks the front door, so I peered out to see Jeff standing there. "Hold on," I said. "I'm in the shower. I'll be right down." I met him at the door in just a towel. "Has Becky said anything yet?" he asked. "Not that I know of," I said. "Is she here?" "No, she's with Sharon at a slumber party." I went up to my bedroom. Jeff followed me. "I'll bet she and Sharon talk about it there," he said. "Maybe," I agreed. I took off the towel and dried my privates. I figured Jeff had already seen me naked enough that I didn't need to worry about it. His eyes fixed on my dangling cock, though, and lingered for longer than I expected. "Hey, keep your eyes to yourself," I teased. "What are you, some kind of prevert?" With mock fury Jeff wrestled me into some kind of headlock, lifting me partly off the ground. My legs (and cock) flailed as I tried to get my balance. Jeff's dick, although shielded by several layers of cloth, pressed tightly against my naked asscheeks. It lasted only a few seconds, just long enough to display friendly displeasure. Not long enough for an outside observer, had there been any, to infer anything out of the ordinary. "God, you're a weakling," he said after he'd let me go. "It runs in the family," I said. Which wasn't true. I just wasn't that worried about it. I put on some briefs. As I pulled them over my hips, I imitated the lisp of the stereotypical effeminate gay: "Do you like it up?" I asked, adjusting my cock so that it pointed upward in my briefs. "Or down?" I tucked it forward under my balls. Jeff responded by grabbing the towel and snapping it. The tip cracked just inches from my crotch. I hopped backward to avoid the potentially stinging blow. "Ooh, you play rough," I continued lisping. He came after me, cornering me and not letting up until he landed a solid blow. The stinging red welt on my thigh brought me out of my silliness. "You want something to eat?" I asked, pulling on my jeans and a clean T-shirt. "Whaddya got?" he asked. "I thought I'd make nachos," I said. In the kitchen I browned some ground beef with onion and grated cheese on top of it. I put this mixture on top of some Doritos and then added lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and sour cream. Jeff was amazed. "You sure this won't taste like shit?" he asked. Evidently he had no concept of cooking in the least. I suppose that was one advantage of living with only one parent. I could pretty much take care of myself. Jeff had every meal prepared for him, all his laundry done, and the house cleaned underneath him. That was an enviable position, because he had more free time. But it made him so utterly dependent on his parents. He admitted that it was good food. "Sure beats the heck out of broccoli tuna casseruole," he said. "I think that's what my mom made for dinner." "What do you want to do?" I asked. I assumed he'd come over with some purpose in mind. "I don't know." "Have you seen the movie 'Casper?'" I asked. "No. It looked stupid." "It's really funny. And the girl in it is cute." We biked to the video store and picked up a copy. "You're sure I'm going to like this?" he asked. "Of course not, but I thought it was funny. You can drool over the girl, and I get to drool over the guy at the end." We watched the movie over the rest of the Doritos and some warm pop. At the final scene, Jeff said, "Wouldn't it be cool if instead of dancing they just dropped to the floor and fucked like bunnies?" "Hell, that's what I'd do if I only had five minutes to be mortal." We rewound the movie and tried to think of something else to do. It was after nine o'clock. "Do you suppose Becky and Sharon have told everybody about catching us fooling around?" he asked eventually. "I don't know." "Maybe they just sit around talking about Barbie dolls," he offered. "Probably not. When you were eleven you had the biggest collection of dirty magazines on the block." "Still do," he grinned. "The point is, they're probably interested enough in sex that they're talking about it. And then everyone will know." "What are we going to do about it?" he asked. "Depends on what she does about it." "What do you mean?" "I mean she's going to use it for something like blackmail--" "And?" "Wait, that's it," I said. "She's probably over there talking about sex with a bunch of giggly girls. All we gotta do is listen to see if she says something we can use against her." Jeff was still unclear, but followed me to Sharon's house. It was still early enough that we had a nice over of darkness. We crept slowly into the backyard near the windows of the basement recreation room. There was no sound there. We moved to the guest bedroom and heard the hum of voices through the window glass. A thick but not completely opaque curtain hung over the window. We could make out dim shapes. The girls sat in their nightgowns on the floor. They had food and stuff around them, and what looked like a "Cosmo" magazine. "Can you hear anything?" Jeff asked. I shushed him and put my ear as close to the glass as I could. I heard Sharon's voice. "God, can you imagine this guy naked?" she said. "What about this guy?" They were flipping through the magazine, looking at underwear ads I suppose. "Look at that," said a girl I didn't recognize. She was pointing at the crotch of a man modeling skimpy underwear. "No way could a guy's dick be that big." "Sure it could," said Becky. I cringed. "How do you know?" asked the first girl. "I've seen one." "You have not," they all said together. "Have to," she insisted. "Whose?" I stiffened for the worst. "It's a secret." "Yeah, that's what I thought. You haven't seen one." "Yes we have," said Sharon. "I was there too. There were two guys and we saw their dicks." "Where?" "In the park." Jeff was listening to this too. "It looks like they're not going to tell," he mouthed. I shrugged my shoulders. Maybe they would, maybe they wouldn't. "What we need is a way to record this," he whispered. I agreed, and that gave me an idea. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 11 Jeff pestered me all the way back to my house. "Just wait," I said. "You'll see." We entered through the garage and I rummaged in boxes on the shelves. "My dad's stuff should be around here someplace," I said. I found the three boxes stashed in the back. Dad was an optical engineer, and he had lots of gadgets laying around the house before he left. The boxes I found were filled with weird lenses, cameras, and all kinds of things I didn't recognize. Some of it worked, some of it didn't, and some of it never worked. These were things that Dad played around with in his spare time, just bits of prototypes that never were produced. "Cool," said Jeff. "You could make movies with this stuff." "Exactly," I said. One of the lens attachments I knew was a starlight scope, the kind used to see in very dim light. The other was an infrared sensor, I guessed from the large red lens filter. I took them out and fitted them to the specially rigged video camera. It was an old Sony camcorder -- one of the first camcorders -- that had been modified to take the experimental lenses. It wasn't compatible with normal VHS stuff, though, because it made it through a T-120 cassette in about 20 minutes. The fast tape speed gave it better resolution. The battery belt, luckily, still had a pretty good charge. "Here, put this on," I told Jeff. "It's heavy," he said, hefting it around his waist. It wouldn't close tight enough, so he just draped it over his shoulder. I plugged the cord into the camcorder. I vaguely knew how all this stuff worked, but luckily the connections were idiot-proof. We took the two lenses and made our way back to Sharon's house. I could still see the girls dimly through the curtain, and if my head was close enough I could still hear them. "Come on," one of the girls was saying. "Show us." Sharon was shaking her head. "How about if we all do it?" someone asked. "But she's the only one with real tits," pointed out Becky. What on earth could they be doing? "All right," said Sharon. "But you have to promise not to laugh." They all nodded. I tried the infrared lens first. I wasn't sure it was attached correctly, because the viewfinder was blank. But then Jeff noticed a dangling wire that should have been plugged into the camera to power the receiver. The viewfinder flared and then resolved into ghostly images. I could only see silhouettes, and the other heat sources in the room were making it difficult to see what was going on. I distinctly saw Sharon lifting her nightgown over her head. "Gimme the other lens," I whispered. In a jiffy it was in place. This was much better, but I had to adjust the gain to get a good image. It wasn't a color image either, just shades of green. But I was close enough to the window that the weave of the curtain wasn't a factor. I fine-tuned the focus and came up with a sharp, clear image. Sharon's breasts were casting tiny shadows. They really weren't breasts at all, just swollen nipples. "Okay, now you," said Sharon. The two girls I didn't recognize suddenly got cold feet. But Becky slid her nightgown off too. She looked pretty much like a boy from the waist up. Her nipples weren't any bigger than mine, I supposed. "Can I touch them?" asked Becky. "I want to see how they feel?" "I suppose so," said Sharon. Becky tentatively reached out and brushed a fingertip against Sharon's nipple. Sharon inhaled sharply. Becky, a bit bolder, rubbed them harder. "Oooh, that feels good," said Sharon. At that, the other girls knelt around Sharon and soon three pairs of hands were admiring the girl's tiny tits. "What's happening?" asked Jeff. "You'd love it," I answered. "No way are they going to tell on us now. At least not if this video turns out." "What are they doing?" "Sharon's got her nightgown off and they're all feeling her up." "No shit?" asked Jeff. "Lemme see." I lifted the hood on the viewfinder so that we could both see. "No fucking way," said Jeff. "Have you ever let a boy see you naked?" asked one of the anonymous girls. "Sort of. I let him see me with my shirt off." "Wow," they all said. I was pretty sure she was lying. "You know," said Sharon. "It feels good to rub yourself between the legs." "My mom says that's dirty," said a girl. "It's not dirty," said Becky. "It's just playing with yourself. It's like rubbing your stomach or your arm." "Show us," said the other girl. "Okay," said Sharon. "But you have to promise not to tell anyone." She slipped her panties off and was then entirely naked. I wasn't sure, but it looked like Sharon had a little patch of hair between her legs. The resolution of the camera wasn't that good. They all oohed and ahhed over Sharon's pussy hair. Then she leaned back on her elbow and rubbed her pussy with the other fingers. Jeff kept crowding me aside to watch. Slowly Sharon spread her legs until she was in a totally obscene pose, her legs spread. I could see some of the detail in her pussy. And most interesting of all, my cock was responding, worming its way through my jeans toward an erection. Becky, my own little sister, stripped off her panties and began doing the same thing, only a little more tentatively. Her back was to me now, so I couldn't really see anything, other than that she was sitting with her legs spread and her hand was busy in her lap. The other girls, awed for a while, pulled up their nightgowns, pulled down their panties, and awkwardly imitated the other girls' actions. Sharon was really into it now, arching her back in time with her finger strokes. She paused and reached back for her overnight back. Stretched out like that she gave me a wonderful full-length nude shot. I panned up and down her slender, young body. Jeff was obviously horny as hell. He kept squeezing his bulging crotch. Sharon returned to her reclined position holding a hairbrush with an ominously shaped handle. "Watch this," she said. She licked the handle to moisten it, then placed the tip between her pussy lips and started to slide it in. "Eww," said one of the girls. "No, it feels really good. This is what it feels like to sleep with a boy." She managed to get several inches of the handle into her pussy and began fucking motions with it. "Use your finger," she said. The other girls found their vagina openings -- I assumed Becky did -- and finger-fucked themselves. "This is so fucking hot," said Jeff. "Yeah," I agreed. "Were we that horny when we were eleven?" "I sure was," said Jeff. Beck was arching her back now and I could see her finger clearly embedded between her pussy lips. I wanted to see if Becky had pussy hair, but the camera wouldn't resolve it. I did zoom in on her pussy, though, since she was the one I absolutely had to get on tape. They continued like this for several minutes, abandoning themselves to sighs and muted moans. At last Sharon pulled the hairbrush out. As near as I could tell she hadn't climaxed. Did she know about orgasms? I sure as hell didn't know enough about girl orgasms to decide if she'd had one. I was reasonably sure girls came too. The girls ceased their masturbation one by one. The other two pulled up their panties and pulled down their nightgowns again. Sharon and Becky seemed content for the moment to be naked. A click and a whir beside my head told me we were out of videotape. "Time to go," I said. "No, wait," said Jeff. "I'm out of tape. Besides, they're finished." "They might start up again," he protested. "I think we ought to go see if we got anything on tape," I said. "Okay," he agreed and we went back to my house. As we got into the light I could see what was causing Jeff's inability to walk comfortably. The bulge behind his fly was obscenely large. There was a gadget for adapting the signal from the camcorder to the normal video signal. I found the required cables and connected everything up. There was an adapter for the camcorder, so Jeff was able to shed the awkward battery belt. We saw first the shadowy figures in infrared. Then the starlight images came on. They were sharp and clear. There was no sound, of course, but we could easily identify the girls. Sharon again removed her nightgown, and then her panties. The masturbation scenes were very good, even though my handheld camara work made for a shaky picture. Jeff was aroused more fully. He undid his jeans and pulled his cock out of his underwear. "Sorry," he said. "I just can't wait." "You mean you're getting hot over my little sister?" "Well, she's fucking herself," he explained wanly. "You are truly sick," I said with mock pity. In truth, Jeff's efforts to relieve himself were adding to my own arousal. I admit having been quite strongly turned on by watching the girls masturbate. I was a stranger to girl sex in nearly every form except for Jeff's magazines, which had aroused me when I was younger. I had never longed for female sex, I supposed, because there was just so much male sex I could have. And I'd never yet met a girl I thought I could relate to as well as Brad and Kyle and some of the other sex partners I'd had. Jeff displayed no such qualms. He was fucking his fist with great gusto. "Mind if I join you?" I asked. "It's your house," he muttered between sighs. "And your sister too." "I'd rather watch you, if that's all right." "Doesn't bother me." I freed my own throbbing member and lubed it with spit. The tape quit after a few minutes and the camcorder shut off. We were both too busy to start it up again. I crawled over to get a better view of Jeff's activity. I didn't understand why he hadn't taken off more clothes. Only his shaft protruded over the top of his waistband. It seemed to be causing him some discomfort. "You need help," I said. I untied his shoes and pulled them off. I left his socks there. Then I pulled his jeans down his legs and off, piling them on top of his shoes. His briefs followed, rendering the sublimely handsome boy entirely naked from the waist down. Jeff's cute face, the face that had won him unapproachable fame in high school, was contorted in extasy. Although older and more chiseled, he still exuded the raw charisma that made others flock to him. His almost man-sized cock was rock-hard and purple in his fist. He'd smeared so much pre-cum on it that it glistened like a jungle snake rearing up from a bush of dark pubic hair. The finely detailed cock head, with its prominent top ridge of flesh and its inviting little slit, quivered with his exertion. His ballsack, resting between his smooth thighs, was smooth and darkly colored. I could see the testicles constricting slowly under the rippled skin, pumping out the little wormie guys that would soon decorate his stomach. I could really stand it no longer. I licked the tip of his cock head, remembering the peculiar saltiness of his sex fluid. He shot me a startled glance, which I met with the eyes of a boy so drunk on hormones I couldn't contain myself. My second contact was longer, really a French kiss on his cockhead. I'd expected him to say something, or to draw away. But instead he continued fixing me with the quizzical gaze and pumping away at his youthful organ. Then I filled my mouth with his cock head, rubbing my tongue under the delicately shaped flesh I'd admired. Unexpectedly, he pulled his fist away finger by finger until all that was left was his thumb and forefinger nestled in the hair at the base of his dick, holding his throbbing cock upright. I rose to a kneeling position so that I could manipulate my own prick. I resolved to take full advantage of this situation, so I applied the strongest suction I could to my friend's teenage cock. I deep-throated him several times, but I felt that if I did so for real Jeff would be wearing partially-recycled nachos soon after. His hips thrust as far as his half-sitting posture would allow. Without warning I felt his gorgeous cock swell, and full spurts of boycum fountained from the hole. I fondled his balls a bit as he finished his orgasm. They were firm, drawn up between his thighs as boys' balls are wont to do during orgasm. Exhilarated by Jeff's sudden change of heart, I unloaded my own teen cum into my hand. Crouched over as I was, Jeff couldn't see it, but Jeff's head was on the floor. I paused my oral activities to enjoy the warm pleasure of my own orgasm, kneeling between the sexy, smooth legs of my straight friend. Jeff's stomach and chest were heaving as he panted. His T-shirt had been pushed up to just under his arms. He lifted his head to look at me, still holding his softening cock in my mouth. He didn't smile, he didn't frown. He just looked at me for a second and then let his head fall back. I let his cock slide out, and it nestled limply in his wiry crotch hair. I stood up, carefully cupping my load in my hand. Jeff's eyes were closed, his clear, dignified features were now at rest. I went to the bathroom to wash my cum down the drain and rinse my hand off. I brought back a towel for Jeff. He looked very seductive lying on the floor wearing only a shirt. Most of his virile, young body was exposed. One leg was bent knee upward and the other was stretched out straight. He was dozing, seemingly oblivious of his nakedness or my voyeurism. His limp but still sizeable cock drooped in its bed of pubic hair. I approached him, and he sensed it and opened his eyes. I handed him the towel, which he used to wipe off his crotch and midsection. He was mostly finished when we heard Mom's car pull into the garage. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 12 Jeff scrambled to gather up his underwear and jeans. Luckily I was already clothed since I'd just pulled it over the top of my shorts and jeans. He was frantically hopping on one foot to get his underwear on, causing his penis to bounce comically. He got into his jeans and fastened them as Mom came in through the kitchen. Jeff wanted to put on his shoes, but then realized it would be perfectly acceptable for him to take off his shoes in my house. While he was dressing I was stashing the special video stuff in a cabinet where I could retrieve it later. "Josh," called Mom. "Are you here?" Obviously she could see the lights in the stairwell and hear the television, which was still on. "Down here," I yelled. Jeff's eyes were still wide at almost being caught. He was constantly readjusting his male equipment to make it seem less prominent. We sat on the couch and tried to look like we'd been channel surfing. Mom appeared at the bottom of the stairs to the recreation room. She was nicely dressed. "Hi, Jeff," she said. "What have you two been doing?" "Watching a video," I said. Jeff flashed me an alarmed glance until he realized I meant _Casper_. "It's nearly eleven-thirty and it's a school night. You should be in bed," said Mom. "And before you go to bed you need to clean up your nacho mess in the kitchen." "How come Becky gets to spend the night at Sharon's on a school night?" "It's Sharon's birthday, and they'll be out of town on the weekend. You have finals; she doesn't. Besides, I called Sharon's mother and she said they've been asleep for long time." Wanna bet? I thought. Mom went back upstairs. "What did you do that for?" asked Jeff. "Do what for?" I asked. "You know, the ..." and he pointed to his crotch. "Are you mad?" "I was," he said. "I thought we understood I wanted to do things with girls." "I still understand that," I said. "But why does that mean you can't do things with guys too?" "Because," he said, as if that were the only reason he needed. "You said you were mad. Are you mad now?" He deflated a bit. "No, I stopped being mad after you started doing such a good job. Honestly I forgot what it was like to get sucked. It was so good that part of me didn't want you to stop. But I didn't want to, you know, have gay sex." "I don't think of it as gay sex or straight sex," I said. "I just think of it as sex." "Well, I have a hard time thinking of it like that. I think everyone else would, too." "Wanna bet?" "What do mean?" I paused a bit. "Do you ever wonder why I don't ride the school bus home most evenings?" "I don't ride it home all the time either. Sometimes we have flag football or something." "Have you ever been to the Parkside Mall?" "Sure." "Ever been to the arcade?" "No." I spent the next fifteen minutes telling Jeff about the people I'd met and had sex with. He didn't believe me at first. He thought I was bragging. But gradually he came to understand I was telling the truth. "How many guys have you had sex with?" he asked. "I honestly have no idea. Regularly I have sex with probably half a dozen guys." "How old are they?" "Most are our age." "And most of them are straight?" "Most of the regular guys are gay. But most of the guys that come in just one or two times are straight. They just need some kind of sex. They have girlfriends, but all the sex they get is jerking off." This was almost too much for him to believe. "The two guys who came in today were straight. I sucked them both off." "Time to wrap it up down there!" Mom called down the stairs. Jeff put his shoes on. "I still can't believe that straight guys are going there to get blow jobs." But it was more rhetorical than doubtful. I said goodnight to Jeff and watched his cute ass wiggle as he walked down the sidewalk. Wednesday was a long day at school again. There were assignments in every class. I stashed the video stuff as soon as I got home from school. Mom was running errands. I stood at the door of Becky's bedroom with the videotape in my hand. "Know what this is?" I asked. "Sure, dummy, it's a videotape," she said. "Know what it's a tape of?" I asked. "Nope." "It's a tape of you and Sharon and those two other girls at Sharon's house last night." She froze in a forlorn expression. "I suppose it would be bad if Mom saw this. Or if Sharon's mom saw it." She nodded. "Personally," I continued, "I don't give a crap what you do. If you want to get naked with your friends, that's fine. But other people can get in trouble if their parents find out what's going on. So here's the deal. You forget what you saw in the woods the other day, and I'll just forget about this tape." "Will you erase it?" "No, because as soon as I do, you'll tell everybody what Jeff and I were doing. Only I know where the tape is. If I hear anything about what happened at the park, I'll give a copy of the tape to the parents of every girl who was at Sharon's house." "Okay," she said, resigned to defeat. "Did you already tell the other girls who you saw?" "No, I swear," she said, almost crying. "Sharon just said we saw two boys." "You don't need to get upset," I said. "You have a secret and I have a secret. Let's just keep our secrets." I hadn't planned to make her so upset, but I suppose there's no way to make blackmail painless. At dinner I made conversation that let her talk about other things. We avoided talking about Sharon or the party, which suited her fine. I spent most of that night doing homework. Jeff had been surprised to see me on the bus on the way home. He called a couple of times to ask about algebra homework. Although we weren't in the same class we had the same teacher. I don't know where he got off thinking I knew anything about algebra, but I felt I owed it to him after first betraying a tacit agreement and then laying the heavy news about the arcade on him. "Did you ever get problem 19?" asked Jeff at the bus stop the next day. I was a little preoccupied. This was the day of my magic rendezvous with Evan. "Yeah," I said, handing him my sheet. "I did that too, but it came out a different way," he said. I looked at his paper. "That's an equivalent answer," I said. "Huh?" "Look, you move the X over here and divide everything by two." "Oh. I didn't see that." I didn't mention that it had taken nearly twenty minutes for me to see it, all the while Becky was drifting past my door, hovering about to see what I was up to. I didn't feel like eating much at lunch. The cafeteria food wasn't that bad, but it was, after all, cafeteria food. I was nervous that Even wouldn't show up. Or that we'd miss each other. Usually a good jerk-off would calm me down. But you had to be careful at school. There were very few private places. I knew of one bathroom near the stage. Actually, it was more under the stage, near the makeup and dressing rooms used for drama productions. They were normally deserted, and so normally the hallway was locked. But occasionally the theater teachers needed to get in there and they frequently left the door unlocked for their own convenience. It was a small bathroom with one urinal and two stalls. I was dismayed to see two feet under one of the stalls. I went into the other one and dropped my pants. Surely the other kid would finish taking a dump and leave soon. Then it became obvious he was not taking a dump. I could see his shoes from where I sat. They were nice, and smaller than mine. That made the kid a seventh grader, since there weren't very many eighth graders with feet that small. I could here him breathing heavily, but trying to cover it. "Hey," I whispered. "Are you jerking off over there?" "No," came the response in a high teen voice. "It sounds like you are," I persisted. I was almost sure he was lying, and I didn't think he'd come clean easily. "I'm jerking off over here. As long as we're both jerking off, do you want to do it together?" There was a long pause. "Yeah, I guess so," came the feeble voice. "Hang on," I said. "I'll be right over." I stood up and pulled my pants up high enough to walk, then stood outside the door of his still while he reached up to unlock it. I slipped inside and closed it behind me. The boy was twelve or thirteen, I couldn't really tell. He was one of the more affluent boys in our neighborhood, judging from his clothes. He had a rugby sport shirt and Guess denim shorts. His legs were smooth, with preteen musculature. His hair was cut in bilevel fashion. The top was very blond, but the cutaway part was darker. He probably got a lot of sun. He had blue eyes and freckles, and a smooth, hairless face. His hand was over his crotch, hiding his equipment from my view. "I suppose I'll just stand here," I said, leaning back against the door. "What if someone comes in?" the boy asked. "They won't. I locked the hallway door with the knob." "Oh, I never thought to do that." I dropped my pants again and pulled my shirt up. My cock was pointing upwards. The boy looked with wide eyes. "Wow," he said. I didn't see what he was looking at until he bared his own crotch. His own cock was fairly meager, only about four inches of erection. His balls were fully formed but entirely hairless. Only a thin ridge of light brown pubic hair crested his little boyrod. "Don't worry," I said. "It'll grow. Especially if you keep playing with it." My shirt was in the way, so I took it off and hung it on the hook. "Here, give me your shirt," I said. He took it off and handed it to me. His chest was flat and featureless, a boy's chest. His shoulders were narrow and his arms were spindly. He watched fascinated as I licked my hand and wrapped it around what to him must seem a gargantuan prick. He followed suit, using his fingertips. He leaned back to get a better angle, resting uncomfortably against the cold chrome plumbing. I moved my feet forward so that most of my weight was resting against the door. We stroked in silence for a minute, eyeing each others' efforts. I decided to be a bit bold, at the risk of traumatizing the kid. "Have you ever had anyone suck your dick?" I asked. "Huh-uh," he shook his head. "Mind if I try?" "You'd really do it?" "Sure. It feels good." He was all too willing. I doubt he was gay. He was like Jeff was at that age, anxious to try anything new, especially having to do with sex. He lifted his hips from the seat. "No, just sit there and spread your legs." He did as I told him, and I knelt awkwardly between his legs. Awkwardly because my pants were still bunched around my ankles. His boyprick pointed straight up at the sky. I pulled it away from his stomach with my finger and slurped it all the way down. My chin was pressed against his tight boy sack and my upper lip matted his pubic hair. After sucking so many larger cocks, his was a breeze. There was plenty of room for my tongue to work its magic under his sensitive shaft. His hands were pressed against the sides of the stall for balance, and his little involuntary pelvic motions made squeaking noises on the toilet seat. I fondled his testicles, little budding orbs of emerging manhood. I was the complete master of his arousal, teasing him with my lips and tongue to the point of orgasm fully half a dozen times before allowing him to spray his thin liquid in my mouth. My hormones raged at the site of this young lad writhing in the throes of what was supposed to be an adult activity. Swallowing his load was easy. "Did you eat it?" he asked. I nodded, still working my tongue around the inside of my mouth. "Eww," he said, wrinkling his nose. "You get used to it," I said. His cock was quickly limp and hung over his smooth balls. I stood up, my own hard-on raging reddish purple. I resumed stroking it. The boy looked at it eagerly, only a foot or two away from his face. He shifted his weight uncomfortably on the seat. It took me a minute to notice his glances. "You can touch it if you want," I said, moving my hand away. He tentatively took it between thumb and forefinger, then grasped it fully. His fingers were cold on my turgid flesh. He explored it a bit further, then ran his fingers through my curly pubic hair. He cradled my balls in his slender hand. "Do you want to try sucking it?" I asked. He looked up at me, surprised. "I don't know how," he said. "It's easy. Just do what I did." I inched forward, still standing between his legs. He leaned forward, still holding my rod. I felt his lips go round my cock head. His mouth was stretched tight over the dark flesh. He could get just a little of it in. He pulled it out again. "Don't cum in my mouth, okay?" he said. "I won't." He resumed his efforts, and they were valiant if inexperienced. He was attempting the same tongue motions I had used on him, but my rod was simply too large for him to hold in his mouth. He tried pumping me, but he could only manage half an inch or so of travel. At last he gave up and pulled it out again. "My jaw hurts," he said. "Yeah, you should really be doing this with someone your own age." Of course, what I meant was someone his own size. "Just lick it underneath," I said. He stuck his tongue out and ran it the full length of my shaft, moistening the thick vein underneath. Thus slicked up, I commenced jacking off again. Thankfully it was only a few seconds until I felt the first wave of orgasm. The boy watched in delight as I gasped and bucked my hips. I put my hand on his shoulder, holding his young torso in place. With my other hand I aimed my spurting cock at his flat chest, coating it with gobs of teenage cum. It hung in great droplets and slowly began its journey down to his lap. He was a bit surprised, but didn't seem to be bothered by the spunk sliding down his body. He dipped a fingertip in one of the larger trails and brought it to the tip of his tongue. His expression changed instantly to one of disgust at the taste, and he worked his jaw and tongue to rid himself of it. "Allow me," I said, and bent my head to his chest. I licked each of the trails up, starting at his belly and working up to his chest where the load had landed. In a jiffy there was no trace of cum left on his body. "Better than jerking off, isn't it," I said. "Yeah," he said with a nervous smile. "I'll bet I'm late for class, though." I looked at my watch. "Just a minute or two, if we hurry." I handed him his shirt and he pulled it on. He stood up and fastened his shorts. It was a little cramped, both of us dressing at the same time, but we did need to hurry. He started for the door ahead of me. I rubbed his shoulders in the classic massage gesture. "Wanna do this again some time?" I asked. "I don't know," he replied noncommittally. "It's kinda gay, isn't it?" "Might be," I agreed. "But it sure feels good." He nodded in agreement, and we went back to our classes. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 13 The minute hand inched closer to 3:00, and then finally the bell rang. I flew to the bus stop and silently willed the vehicle to go faster. Once at the mall I approached the arcade quickly, and then slowly, not daring to see what I might see. It was crowded, and in the dim light it was difficult to distinguish features. Manny was there, as was Kwan and Ricky, two other boys for rent. They were crowded around Kwan, who was playing a new game. I looked for Brad, but he wasn't there. Neither were any of the suburb kids. Evan wasn't there either. I searched carefully, unwilling to believe he would not come. Two skate punks were playing a new cop chase game. The looked up every so often to scout the occupants of the arcade. What were they doing there? I saw them on weekends -- not these two, but others like them -- but almost never during the week. I tried to drown my sorrows in a pinball game, but the erratic path of the ball only made my disappointment worse. Then there was a hand on my shoulder. "You really shouldn't play the games you aren't good at," said a familiar voice. I turned, and there was Evan, standing next to me. For some reason I remembered him as shorter. But my eyes were level with his mouth. That beautiful mouth with soft lips. He had on the same Rice-Krispie necklace, which was actually small stones. He wore it over a black T-shirt and under a red flannel shirt which hung below his waist. The baggy jeans he wore appeared to be the same as those I'd seen before. "I didn't think you were coming," I said. "I was here earlier. That kid over there said you didn't get out of school until three, so I went window shopping." "Let's get out of here," I said. Manny and Ricky saw me leave, and winked. Ricky made a jerk-off motion near his crotch. That meant he though Evan was a good catch. We went to the room we had made love in before. To our horror, as we rounded the corner of the hallway, the door was standing wide open. The light inside was on, and two men were stacking boxes. "Whaddyou want?" asked one of the men. "Nothing," I blurted. "We just got lost." As we walked down the hall I asked "Now what are we going to do?" "How long does it take to get to your house?" he asked. "Half an hour, in this traffic." "Too long. And I don't have bus money." "How about your house?" I ventured. If he hadn't come on the bus, surely he lived nearby. "Not a good plan," he said. "It's either your house or the parking garage," I said. I didn't want to ask Brad for his house because it would be rude not to invite him to join us. And I wanted Evan all to myself. "I suppose, then," he agreed. "It's still not a good idea." "Why not?" "It's complicated." Evan lived across the river in a section which might have once been a nice part of town. The streets were full of trash, and the yards of the houses were littered with broken toys and more trash. "Here's the royal palace," said Evan as we stopped in front of a small, nondescript one-story house. "Stay here for a minute. If I don't come back soon, go home." He unlocked the door and peering in. After a minute inside, he appeared again and waved me in. The living room was sparsely furnished with cast off chairs and a Naugahide couch. An old TV faced the couch and was surrounded with empty beer bottles and pizza boxes. The stench of sweat and unwashed dishes permeated everything. We passed down a dim hallway into a bedroom which was obviously Evan's. A stolen traffic sign decorated the door. The window was open, letting the spring breeze waft through. Dirty clothes and old magazines covered the tile floor. Evan's bed was simple, a metal frame and a mattress with a couple of worn sheets. Rock band posters decorated the walls, substituting for paint or wallpaper. The most interesting aspect was the bits and pieces of machinery that littered the room. There were parts from car engines, adding machines, telephones, and lots of unidentified mechanisms occuping almost every horizontal surface. We looked at each other, uncertain how to begin. Then Evan slipped his hand behind my neck and drew my face close to his. Our lips met, and his tongue greeted mine between them. His silver-blue eyes were closed, the delicate lashes fluttering slightly. His eyebrows were thin and slanted downward in the center, not like a Vulcan's but more like Tokien's elves. His nose I really couldn't see, but it was narrow and slightly upturned. I duplicated his gesture and placed my hand behind his head. My fingers intertwined with his long blond hair, and gave me immediate cause for regret. His hair, obviously not washed for some time, was sticky. "Sorry," he muttered, sensing my distress. "Plumbing's bad." I drew my hand down his back, not so much in a caress as to cleanse it of the residue. The sensuous contours of his back, however, brought my erotic sense back to full force. I paused at the small of his back, drawing his entire body closer. Our heads gyrated as our tongues played tag between us. His breath was sweet and warm, and his lips soft and moist. He playfully ran his tongue between my lips and teeth, and after it had left its raspy trail there I drew it between my lips to suck gently on it. He let me suck on his tongue for several seconds before pulling apart. He did so, I saw, to lift my T-shirt up. As I saw his intent, I helped him pull it over my head. He gazed at my chest for a second, following up with a warm, gentle caress. The breeze in the window played across my bare torso. Evan's hands brushed my nipples, my shoulders, held my waist, and circled around my back. I felt the need to explore his body in a similar fashion, so I pulled his shirt off his shoulders and let it join the others nearby. He looked so different in just the T-shirt. I pulled the shirt up, and rather than helping me he just moved his arms in a convenient way which allowed me to peel the cloth from his skin. I found this gave me more contact with the boy's skin, which was pale and smooth. His chest was as I'd remembered it, delicately contoured and exactly proportioned. He was a slender boy, but not skinny. I rubbed a fingertip over his nipple, feeling with delight as it rose to erection. He smiled gently as he did the same to me. I pulled him next to me, feeling the warmth of his chest against mine. The scent of his unwashed body, far from offensive, had an aphrodisiac effect. I felt his heart pounding, and was sure he could feel mine. Our embrace lasted for several minutes, two boys burning with desire, unafraid of the forbidden nature of their union. I slid my hands from the small of his back to his shoulders. At that point he drew a sharp breath. "What?" I whispered. "Nothing," he said. "Just a bruise." The spell thus broken, we sat on the bed and proceeded to complete our disrobing. I took of my shoes -- leaving my socks as did he -- and slid off my jeans. My cock was pressing against the fabric in a very insisten fashion. A wet spot marked the tip of my penis. Evan, I saw, wore no underwear today. He dropped his pants to reveal his nakedness in full erection and glory. I admired the perfection of his organ, the symmetry, the shape, and the size. The perfect distribution of pubic hair, the shape and size and hairlessness of his ballsack. I made to remove my own underwear. "No," he said. "Let me do it." He scooted closer and kissed me again, this time his hand dropping to my lap to caress the bulging, cotton-covered organ. He ran his hand all over my belly, crotch, and thighs, until my cock begged to be released. He pushed me slowly backwards until I lay on the bed. Then he drew my shorts sensuously down my legs, exposing my teenage dick. He dropped my shorts on top of the neat pile of clothes I'd made (so they wouldn't be confused with his). Sliding up next to me, he took my organ in his slender, almost feminine hand. "It's your turn first, this time," he said. Then he dropped his head and took me into his mouth. His hand cupped my balls, the fingertips pressing delightfully against the skin between my balls and asshole. His tongue was doing wonderful, unexplainable things to my cockhead, and his lips pressed skilfully against the shaft. "Oh, God," I muttered. "Oh, dude, you are really good at this." He smiled around my cock and continued milking it. I put my hand on his head, not caring that his hair was dirty, just so I could feel more fully the motions he was exercising. He was doing much more than just masturbating me with his mouth. He plunged my cock ever deeper into his hot young mouth and squeezed my balls gently. His arm was draped over my leg and I felt his underarm hair scraping gently on my skin. "Oh, Evan," I gasped. "Oh, I can't hold on, I'm cumming!" The pent-up orgasm blasted from my loins like a freight train. Evan's tongue moved to catch the onslaught from my teen cock. Involuntarily I lifted my hips and bucked, my powerful crotch muscles firing every drop into Evan's waiting mouth. I fell back against the bed, bathed in sweat. Evan continued milking my rod with his tongue, then let it slide from between his lips. It lay glistening on my stomach, limp and moist with semen and saliva. Evan gave no indication that swallowing my considerable load had distressed him in any way. On the contrary, he was savoring its taste. "Now it's my turn to fuck your mouth," he whispered. His breath had the telltale odor of cum. He climbed on to the bed and indicated for me to lift my upper body. After arranging the pillow to prop my head up, he let me lay back down, then straddled my chest. His legs were slim and smooth, but not scrawny. His knees were planted on either side of my chest and his crotch was inches from my face. The dirty blond crotch hair caught the glint of afternoon sun from the window. His young rod stood proudly erect above his perfectly shaped balls. A drop of precum honey formed at its tip. He leaned forward to brace his arms against the wall. This brought his penis to the right angle to slide into my mouth. I opened up to let him in, and was rewarded by several inches of hot, throbbing boy meat. He thrust his hips in the standard fucking motion. Every so often his balls would slap my chin. I just clenched my lips around his rod and let it slide over my tongue. He only gagged me a couple of times. Other than that he seemed very aware of how much of himself he could stuff in my mouth. I placed my hands on his naked hips, feeling the power of his muscles as he fucked my mouth. Then I cradled his tight teenage buns in my hands, feeling his crotch and ballsack with my fingertips. The odor of crotch sweat mixed with semen was strong and alluring in my nostrils. Then, almost without warning, he brought his hand down and grabbed his cock, pulling it nearly out. I was about to object when the first of his hot blobs of cream hosed the inside of my mouth. I lapped up his sweet boy nectar eagerly as he jacked it into my mouth. Then, spent, he walked backwards on his knees until he could lie face down on my chest. I lounged under the warm, soft weight of his body. Our soft cocks pressed against each other. He was raised up on his hands a bit so that our faces were a few inches apart. The longest strands of his hair brushed my cheeks. He flashed a toothy grin and then kissed me long and deeply. After a minute he rolled off of me and we snuggled together, our now tame breathing becoming slow and rhythmic as we drifted off to sleep in each other's arms. I awoke with a start, surprised at how soundly I had slept. I was on my side. Evan was behind me, our legs tangled together. He had conformed his body to mine, and I felt his limp, hairy cock pressed against my ass cheeks. His arm was around me, draped over my side under my own arm. Perhaps it was this welcome but unfamiliar confinement that forced me to wake up. My motion awakened Evan, who raised up on his elbow. "Josh?" "What?" I whispered. "I really liked that." "So did I," I answered. "Do you, um," he faltered. "Do you want to be my boyfriend?" "What do you mean?" I asked. "I mean, do you want to be friends?" "Sure," I said. "Do you want to keep doing this together?" "I sure do," I said. "I think you're sexy." "Really?" he asked, surprised. I turned over so that I was facing him, regretting having to break the leg-embrace that was hardening my cock again. "Yeah," I said. "I think you're a very good-looking dude." He laughed a bit. "Do you want to have sex some more?" The sun was still high in the sky. I was worried about getting home in time, but it looked like we'd only dozed for a few minutes. "Right now?" "Yeah." "I suppose." He caressed my side from flank to hip, then took my cock in his hand. "You're really hung well," he said. "Thanks. So are you." We embraced face to face, twining our legs together as they had been before. Breast to breast, lips to lips, we rubbed against each other gently. Suddenly there was a loud noise from the living room. "Evan!?" a man's voice called gruffly. "Evan! Where the fuck are you?" Evan's response was instantaneous. He was immediately standing, dragging me out of bed. "Out the window," he whispered urgently. There was genuine mortal fear in his face. "Quickly," His cock swung half erect as he darted about the room retrieving my belongings. Fortunately my clothes were in a single pile, which he gathered in his arms. As he did so I noticed the horrible bruise on his shoulder, the one I had accidentally brushed. "Evan!" yelled the voice again. Feeding off his urgency, I climbed out the window, careful not to rack myself on the window sill. Gratefully we were not far from the ground. "Run," commanded Evan from the window, tossing my clothes down to me. "Don't let him see you. I'll be at the arcade." He disappeared, leaving me stark naked and still erect in his backyard with my clothes in my hands. "Evan, what the fuck are you doing?" shouted the man's voice, now clearly coming from the bedroom. I had originally intended to run across the backyard and out to the alley, but then I would be seen from the window. "Nothing," said Evan. "Just sleeping." "Why the fuck are you naked? Have you been beating off? Goddammit, son, I work my ass off every fucking hour of every fucking day to feed you, and I ask you to clean up a bit around here and you sit in your fucking bedroom all day and beat off! You worthless sack of shit!" As I inched across the back wall I heard thumping and crashing noises from the window. Around the corner, my back smarting from the scraping brick, I paused in the shadow to don my underwear and jeans. "This house is a goddamned pigsty and you won't lift a goddamned finger to help!" I now heard the ominous sound of slaps on skin. "I don't know why the fuck I put up with you! I oughta fucking let you starve to death! Now put on your fucking clothes and clean up the fucking living room before I kick the shit out of you!" More slaps. More thumps. Another sound, which I identified as a fist slamming into flesh. I put my shirt on and slipped my shoes. The last sound I heard before creeping toward the street was the gentle sobs of a boy crying. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 14 I don't remember much of the bus ride home. I just stared out the window at the passing traffic, at parents with their kids on outings, at unknown faces about uknown business. Of course people like Evan existed. I had known that intellectually. People like Brad were disadvantaged because they had no money. I didn't know about Manny or Kwan or Ricky or any of the other boys who sold themselves. Did they have parents? Were the parents abusive? Manny, I knew, was largely neglected. His mother didn't give a shit whether he lived or died. Kwan never talked about where he lived. Hell, Kwan hardly talked at all. Ricky was all bravado and image. Was this to conceal a broken home? These questions rested heavily on me. I was in love. That much I knew. And I'd agreed to be Evan's boyfriend, whatever that meant. I didn't even know his last name, or even much about him. All I knew was that as we lay in each other's arms with our bare skin touching, much more flowed between us than spit and semen. I almost missed my bus stop, but my brain woke up just in time. Jeff was outside his house when I walked by. "Hi," he said. I waved in response. "You okay?" he asked. "Yeah," I muttered. "You look like you just got beat up or something." "Not exactly." "What do you mean, not exactly?" I paused a second. "Jeff, have your parents ever hit you?" "Not that I can remember. My dad spanked me a couple of times, but now they just lecture me and make me sit in my bedroom and think over what I did wrong. I usually jack off instead." He laughed, but then saw that I was serious. "Did your mom do something?" "No," I answered, and it sounded convincing. "I'm fine. But I ... I heard someone's dad beating up on him. Not just spanking, either." "Wow," said Jeff. "Anybody I know?" "No. Somebody I met at the arcade." "You ought to stay away from that place. Downtown people can be bad." I thought seriously about taking that advice, but the arcade was my only link to Evan and I wanted to see him now more than ever. I managed to put on a happy enough face to fool Mom. She was in the kitchen getting dinner ready. My backpack was full of homework, and I really didn't want to do it but I forced myself to be interested in it. I was aware of Becky outside my door. She would walk past slowly, look in, and then move on as if she was on some other business. Finally she came in. "Josh," she said. "I kinda have a question." "Sure," I said without looking up. "It's kinda private," she said. I put down my pencil. "What do you mean?" "Well, okay," she faltered. "Um, it's about guys and girls." I nodded and she continued. "Okay, Sharon says that a guy puts his ... you know ... into a girl's pussy to have sex." "Yeah," I prompted. I wasn't sure I wanted to get involved. "Okay," continued Becky. "Does it, um, fit okay?" I was confused. "I don't get your question," I said. "Okay. You remember when we saw you and Jeff?" "How can I forget?" "Well, your ... dick and his were really big. I mean, bigger than I thought. They looked big anyway." I was starting to blush. I guess I'd never thought of my sister saying the word "dick." "Okay." She was having a hard time getting this out. "When I put my finger in myself, like with Sharon and the other girls, my finger feels so big. I think a dick would really hurt." "Well, you're only eleven," I pointed out. "Almost twelve," she corrected. "Yeah. Still, you're a lot smaller than me. And when you get older, your pussy won't be so small. If you saw a boy's dick that was your age, it wouldn't be much bigger than your finger." "Really?" "I think so." That's about as much as I wanted to say. "You know, you really ought to talk to Mom about this. She'd be able to answer this better than me." It was kind of uncomfortable, talking to my sister about sex. I just wanted someone else to have to deal with it. "I can't ask Mom that!" she protested. "Give Mom a chance," I said. "She's actually pretty cool about sex." Becky was still reticent. "Look, it might be difficult at first, but if you're interested in sex I think Mom would want you to talk to her about it." "Okay," she said and left. At dinner Mom made an announcement. "I got a phone call from David today," she said. "He arranged furlough for him and Lance, and they'll be here for a week this summer." "Both of them?" I asked. "Yes," said Mom deliberately. "Lance's parents will be in Europe this summer." I wondered how Mom would take it, having her son's gay lover under her roof. I didn't get to see David much since he joined the Navy. He'd been a stranger in some respects during his two- or three-day visits that happened every few months. Somewhere inside he was still my big brother, but he'd become part of a different world since leaving home. But I was looking forward to it anyway. A whole week. Becky and Mom spent the whole evening in Becky's bedroom with the door shut. I guess they were having the birds and bees talk. Mom stopped by later. "Becky is turning into a young woman," she said. "All my kids are growing up. I've just told Becky about the facts of life. She seemed to understand pretty well. I guess that's what's different about your generation. Sex isn't the big deal it was for us. Anyway, I'm only telling you this because I didn't tell her about you and David. Do you care if she knows?" "As long as she can keep a secret." "That was my worry. I'm afraid she'll go blabbing it around the neighborhood. Life was rough enough with your father here. Maybe you can tell her when you feel she ought to know. Are you comfortable with that?" I thought for a while. "I don't know," I said. "Maybe she ought to here it from you." "Let's just play it by ear, then." In the wee hours of the morning I was awakened by the sound of bare feet in my room. I was instantly awake, but didn't move. I opened my eyes a crack. Enough moonlight streamed through the window that I could see a silhouette of Becky creeping for my bed. Uh oh, I thought. She bent over to see if I was asleep, and I did my best to pretend I was. I was more interested than suspicious. Then she knelt beside my bed and lifted up the edge of my covers. She slid her hand under the sheet, aiming for my groin. I slept naked sometimes, usually when I fell asleep right after masturbating. This was one of those times. I was laying on my side, facing her. Her cold fingers made contact with the hot skin of my thigh and I stifled a gasp. She paused, then moved her fingers toward my crotch. She contacted my scrotum first, fondling my balls lightly. She brushed her fingertips through my pubic hair. My cock was getting hard and it was becoming difficult to feign sleep. Oh well, I thought. At least if I'm going to get fondled by my own little sister I'll do her the honor of giving her an erection to feel. She inched her fingers up my shaft. At the tip, she pulled it away from my belly a bit so she could feel the backside. She caressed the ridge of my cock head and then held it in her hand. I wished her fingers would hurry and warm up. I opened my eyes a crack. Becky's other hand was under the hem of her nightgown. She was obviously masturbating, in her own way. I couldn't see for sure since her nightgown was bunched up, but her forearm was moving in rhythmic motions. She had her fingers between my cock and stomach and was rubbing the underside of my cock with her thumb. She was doing a poor job of jacking me off, but after all she was an eleven -- almost twelve -- year old virgin. What could I expect. Becky's breathing became heavy although she tried to hide it. Her little hips were bucking a bit back and forth. Was she having an orgasm? Did she even know what one was? She must, after tonight's session with Mom. After a few seconds she let go of my dick and pulled her arm slowly from under the covers. She stood up, shakily, and walked out the door. I felt kind of exploited. But another part of me was thrilled that she would choose me to help her get off. Granted, it may have been a matter of convenience, but she could have just stayed in her room. But on the other hand she was my sister. It was hard for me to think of her in a sexual way. She was an annoying little girl, in my mind. The more immediate problem was that I was now fully erect and aroused. I threw back the covers and began a quickie jack-off. It was just a few hours before dawn and I'd never get to sleep until I got my rocks off. After a minute or two of stroking I shot my load all over my chest. Not even caring to clean in up, I rolled over and let it smear all over the sheets. It would dry, I told myself as I fell asleep. Becky looked at me curiously in the morning. She was searching for something, probably trying to see if I'd been awake last night. I didn't give her any indication I'd been aware of her primitive hand job. I went to the arcade after school, of course. Brad was there, and so was Kwan. Evan wasn't. "Have you seen Manny today?" asked Kwan. I think it was the most Kwan had said to me in six months. "No," I answered. "He left last night with a guy," said Brad. "Two skate punks followed them out. I don't know if it was just coincidence or what." "He hasn't been here all day," said Kwan. "You think they did something to him?" I asked. "I don't know," said Kwan. "They've been hanging around here a lot." "So?" I asked. "They don't play games," said Brad. "They just stand and talk." "They wouldn't just attack someone," I pointed out. Kwan shrugged. "I don't trust them. I'm just a little worried." "Have you guys seen a guy in here? He's a little taller than me, has long blond hair, kinda greasy, and wears flannel shirts." Both boys shook their heads. "Ricky and me have been hear since about noon. Brad showed up an hour ago," said Kwan. I really wanted to see Evan again. I supposed I was afraid he was really hurt, that his father had done something terrible to him. I wanted to see him to make sure he was all right. "Could you do me a favor?" I asked. I pulled a piece of paper out of my school backpack. "His name's Evan. If he comes in, give him this." I wrote my address and phone number on it. Kwan shrugged and tucked the paper into his studded imitation leather jacket. Ricky, who'd been playing a game, joined us. "Hey, dudes. What's up?" he asked. Ricky was a head shorter, twelve years old, and had a cute face. His light brown hair was combed, but needed to be cut. He wore a T-shirt cut off to reveal his stomach. His jeans were very tight, as they would have to be to attract customers. "Remember that guy I picked up here yesterday?" I asked. "The guy with the long hair?" "Yeah. Have you seen him today?" "Nope." "Well if you do, Kwan has something for him from me." "He leave his underwear at your house?" Ricky joked. "No," I answered with a grin. "I just want him to be able to find me." We made small talk for a few minutes. "Hey, you guys wanna go somewhere and do something?" asked Kwan. "Don't you want to stay here?" I asked tentatively. "Nah. Somebody tried to rob a gift shop upstairs. The place has been crawling with cops. We won't get any tricks today." Kwan, at sixteen, was the unofficial leader of the gaggle of boys who sold themselves from the arcade. Somebody told me he was half Vietnamese, half American, although I thought he was too young to be one of those children of American soldiers. He had high cheekbones and delicate, sculptured Asian features. His body was reed thin and his black hair was long and pulled together in a pony tail. He dressed in black leather, or imitation leather. His leather pants were skin-tight and revealed every contour of his youthful cock. He never talked to us much. At first I thought he was something like a pimp, but he never told the other boys what to do. He gave them advice and occasionally interceded on their behalf with customers. He rarely smiled, and I admit I kind of avoided him. He scared me a little bit. But I figured out he really did care for people around him. He just needed to project a tough image. We all knew Kwan was proposing sex. I didn't think he and the other rental boys really liked having sex. I figured they just thought it was a job, the only one they did. Brad's apartment was vacant again. It was too early for anyone to be home. We unceremoniously disrobed. Kwan and Ricky were almost instantly naked. Neither of them wore underwear. It just took too much time. Brad brought out the Dick-O-Meter. Ricky had already recorded his length for posterity, but that was some time ago and Brad did him again. The new mark was almost a half inch longer than the previous one. "Cool," said Ricky. Kwan's erection was pretty large. I guessed it was bigger than Steve or Tony, or most of the older boys I'd had sex with recently. It surpassed Steve's mark by nearly an entire inch, and took its place as the new champion. That is, apart from Brad's bogus entry, which Kwan almost instisted on verifying. "What do you guys like to do?" asked Kwan. "Whatever," I said. "What do you like to do?" Kwan shrugged. He'd probably done it all. Ricky too. "Josh can suck good," said Brad. I laughed modestly. Kwan hefted his erection. "Wanna try?" he asked. "Sure. Why not?" Kwan sat on the bed and spread his legs. His cock reached nearly to his navel. His tiny nipples were the only features on his flat chest. I knelt between his thighs and grasped the boy's cock. After a few minutes of sucking, Kwan began to sigh. "Hey, you are good at this," he said. I responded by tightening my lips around his cock. Meanwhile, Brad and Ricky were in a semblance of a 69 position. Brad was licking Ricky's hairless cock, and Ricky was doing a pretty good job of deep-throating his companion. Ricky was a professional, after all. We continued like this for several minutes. Brad stiffened and gasped, firing a load of hot sperm down Ricky's young throat. The boy took every drop without flinching or gagging. After a minute or two, Ricky grunted. "Oh yes!" he shouted. It wasn't a passionate cry. It was more like he'd scored the winning touchdown. He fucked Brad's mouth with vigor, relishing in his cumless young orgasm. Kwan told me later than Ricky was the multiple orgasm king. He'd once had nine orgasms in a row, and nearly passed out afterwards. Thirty seconds later he did it again. "Yes, he goes for two!" "Ricky, let the poor kid breathe," said Kwan. Reluctantly he pulled out of Brad's mouth and let his cock go limp. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 15 I wondered how close Kwan was getting to his orgasm. My jaw was starting to ache. I suspected he was holding out, seeing if his ability to keep from cumming would outlast my stamina. But that wasn't the case. "Here," said Kwan, lifting my head from his crotch. "I got a better idea." He motioned to Ricky. "Get up on the bed." Ricky seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He got onto the bed on all fours, sticking his ass up into the air. "You got any Vaseline?" asked Kwan. Brad went to the bathroom and came back with a jar. Kwan smeared a bit on his cock and a bit on Ricky's little brown asshole. Ricky's hairless boy balls hung in their tight sack between his thighs. Kwan maneuvered himself into position behind the boy. He put his hand on Ricky's shoulder and with the other hand guided the tip of his cock to the boy's anus. I was anxious to see if he would really do it. I'd only seen this in pictures. But sure enough, Kwan swung his hips forward and sank his cock slowly into Ricky's tight ass. The boy didn't even flinch. "Does that hurt?" asked Brad. "It did at first," said Ricky. "You get used to it." "You gotta be gentle with him," said Kwan. The older boy undulated his hips and started a gentle fucking motion. I was close enough to see the Asian's shaft disappearing between the boy's tight cheeks. My hard-on was almost throbbing by this time. "Ricky, you wanna suck this guy off?" asked Kwan. "Sure," said Ricky. I knelt on the bed and walked on my knees. Ricky lifted his head and swallowed my cock. I could tell his mouth was smaller than most of my sex partners, but he had such incredible control over his gag reflex that he took me down his throat with every stroke. Kwan's fuck strokes became Ricky's suck strokes, and his body just rocked back and forth. Kwan had his hands on Ricky's hips and helped hold him in place, but let him sway just enough to give me a pretty damn good blow job. Brad stood by and watched. I felt a bit guilty for not letting him in the fun, but he was too spent from Ricky's blow job and was content to watch. All too soon my orgasm peaked and I spewed white hot jism into Ricky's waiting mouth. He milked my organ with his throat and tongue, then let me pull out of his mouth. At this point Kwan increased his fucking tempo and Ricky braced his arms to absorb the force. Then with four or five deep strokes accompanied by loud grunts, Kwan came deep in Ricky's ass. Ricky expelled the boy's softening cock after a few seconds. His asshole glistened with Vaseline, and a tiny white drop leaked out of the puckered hole and ran down his ballsack. Kwan and Ricky got off the bed. Kwan had his hands on Ricky's shoulders in almost a fatherly way. They went to the bathroom to clean up. "Have you ever done that before?" asked Brad. "I've never even seen that before," I answered. "Do you think it hurts?" "Like he said, maybe the first time. I'm just not sure I want to do something like that." "Well, you ought to try it just to say you've tried it." We put our clothes back on. Kwan and Ricky dressed as quickly as they'd undressed. "I gotta get home," I said. "Are you guys going back to the arcade?" "Yeah," said Kwan. "I'll probably go out later and look for Manny. I'm worried about him." I figured if Kwan gave my message to Evan then I wouldn't need to go back to the arcade. I wondered if Kwan would be able to recognize him. But certainly Ricky would. Still, I wanted to see Evan, and that made me more eager than ever to hang out at the arcade. I spent most of Saturday and a good part of Sunday at the arcade. Mom thought I should be doing better things with my time. Evan didn't come, but Manny was there on Sunday. Nothing had happened. A guy in town on business had paid him a hundred dollars to stay at his hotel all of Friday and Saturday. During the day he watched cable TV in the hotel room and at night the guy took Manny out to eat and then they made love and slept together. It was a dream come true for the boy. Kwan was visibly relieved, but we were all wary of the three skate punks who seemed to look away just as one of our group took notice. We sort of went our separate ways after Manny showed up. I tried a new game, another martial arts game I was no good at. Just as I was ready to leave, Kyle showed up. I hadn't seen him for a long time. He was in my school, one of the few arcade boys I knew from elsewhere. But we moved in different circles. He was a tall, thin, geeky boy, very intelligent, but also very effeminate. I don't think it was necessarily his fault. His family was very wealthy and was from the East Coast, so he was probably socialized into that sort of behavior. If you looked at Kyle just right he looked a lot like Wesley Crusher, except Wesley was butch compared to Kyle. Kyle's sweater was tied by the sleeves around his neck. It wasn't that cold; Kyle did it just for image. I'd seen him in the hall once or twice since our last sex encounter, and he'd sort of smiled and waved. "Hi," he said when he recognized me. "Hi," I said. "What's up?" "Nothing. My dad's doing some business with some bank and I don't have anything to do until he's done." His voice was soft and high-pitched. Not squeaky, but he could sound like a girl if you weren't looking at him to see he was a boy. Then again, he didn't much behave like a boy. Everybody at school thought he was gay, although he claimed he wasn't. But I knew he was, or at least enjoyed gay sex. "You haven't been around for a while." "I know," he said. "My parents get me involved in all their stuff and I never have any free time anymore." I kind of wanted to go home, but Brad wasn't here and Kwan had left with a customer half an hour ago. Manny was talking to some college student, probably also trying to get lucky. I had resigned myself to going home without sex, and it was getting late. "Do you want to go somewhere?" asked Kyle. "I really should be getting home." "What if my dad gave you a ride?" he asked. "You sure he won't mind?" "Of course not. Your house is right on the way home." I thought about it. A quickie with Kyle might just be what I wanted. We collected a large shopping back and headed for the least frequented bathroom. We had to wait a few minutes for the room to clear a bit, since it would be suspicious for us both to go in the same stall. When it was clear, we went into the farthest stall. Kyle was in the mood for foreplay and started caressing my erection through my pants. His own Dockers were bulging at the crotch, and I reciprocated. Kyle carried his cock pointed downwards, which made for a spectacular presentation when he was clad only in underwear. It looked like he was smuggling a grapefruit. It also made for a slight downward bend in his cock, once free of his undershorts. And he was no exception to the rule that tall geeky guys have the biggest cocks. Unfortunately in his case, he was only an inch or so longer hard than soft. That made for a showy display as he walked around a room naked. His cock was long enough even when soft that he could get some good pendulum action on the swing. I kinda wanted this to go quickly, so I undid my pants with one hand and his with the other. He stood in the sack and let his pants fall to his knees. I dropped mine to my ankles and sat on the toilet. Kyle was really horny. There was a spot of precum on his underwear at the tip of his cock. He pulled his underwear down and his cock popped up comically. Normally guys have to pull the waistband away and over their cocks, which are pointed up or to the side when erect. Kyle's was held pointed down by his tight white shorts, and his erection is like a powerful spring released as the waistband clears the tip. Without wasting any time I took hold of his cock and guided it to my mouth. With my other hand I started jacking myself off. Kyle was trying hard to control his breathing. People were in and out of the bathroom, but mostly to take a piss. Still, we had to avoid looking -- or sounding -- suspicious. Kyle placed his hands on my head, not so much for passion as for balance. His fingers were long and thin, as were his hands, like a girl's. His arms looked almost totally devoid of muscle, although I suspected that as was the case with most slender boys, he had a sort of wiry strength. Almost as quickly as we had begun, Kyle was finished. With a grunt he barely stifled, he blasted me in the back of the throat with half a dozen good gobs of cum. For some reason Kyle's cum always tasted like celery. It wasn't because he ate a lot of celery. Hm, I thought, maybe it's time for a new hobby when you can distinguish your friends by what their sperm tastes like. Kyle pulled out his cock and slipped his underwear back on. It wasn't that he didn't like relishing the post-orgasmic bliss. It was the harsh reality of bathroom sex. The faster, the better. I leaned back against the wall and wrapped my shoulder blades around the cold chrome plumbing. Kyle watched as I masturbated and shot all over my stomach. It wasn't a good orgasm. The guy sitting for bathroom sex rarely has a good one. But it would keep my hormones in check until I could do a better job. A few wipes with toilet paper and a flush cleaned us up. And from the outside it sounded just like someone taking a shit. But we had to wait a minute or two for the bathroom to clear out so we could emerge. The other rule was never to leave at the same time. We met again in the mall atrium, since his dad was giving me a ride home. His dad picked us up outside the mall's main entrance in a new black Lexus. Our conversation was polite and sparse. Our families really didn't know each other. Kyle's dad was some kind of investment banker, and looked the part. But he was nice about the ride home and even pulled into the driveway to drop me off. "Did anyone call for me?" I asked Mom when I came in. "No," she said. "Are you ready for school tomorrow?" "Yeah," I said. "I really don't mind if you want to spend all your free time playing video games, but you should be spending more time on your classwork." "There's not much to do." "You have finals, don't you?" "Just one, and it'll be easy." "Don't assume that. You might also want to think about what you're going to do this summer." Last summer I went to summer camp. Not only did I miss David's summer furlough, but I was stuck in a cabin with three fat twelve-year-olds who talked about nothing but Dungeons and Dragons for six weeks. Not only did the thought of sex with them turn my stomach, I even had to go find someplace else to jerk off. And I never made good enough friends to have sex with them. I'd been to one summer camp or another since I could remember, and I'd hated them all. "I don't want to go to summer camp." "I didn't think you did. You're getting too old for that. Why don't you think of a summer job or something to earn some money." The obvious job of selling myself for sex didn't seem very appealing. I went up to my room, which was a predictable mess. Dad's big box of optical stuff was still spread over my desk. I started putting it all back, paying more attention to the stuff I'd ignored earlier. There was a nice 35mm camera by Nikon. A few lenses looked like they fit. A couple of them were obviously prototypes Dad tinkered with. The other camera was bigger, made by Mamiya. I couldn't tell what lenses were supposed to fit. I knew about the 35mm stuff. Dad tried to teach David all about it, before David came out. I listened in on most of it, but I'd never tried it. I set the Nikon aside and put all the rest of the stuff back in the box. There was a knock on my open door. "Are you all right?" asked Mom. "Yeah, why?" "You seem kind of moody these days." "No, I'm okay." "I saw you got Dad's junk out. Anything fun in there?" "Maybe, if I can figure out how it goes together." "It may not go together at all. That's just what he left in the shop. I don't think he'll be back for it." "I thought it might be fun to mess around with." "Okay. I just wanted to see if there was something bothering you that you wanted to talk about." Yes, there was something bothering me, but I really didn't want to talk about it. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 16 Monday was a blur, mostly because I was preoccupied thinking of Evan, but also because there was general excitement about school being out. June was in full swing, and the air was warm. The last vestiges of spring were giving way to summer. I actually did see Kyle in the hallway, which was a surprise. He smiled and waved in his effeminate parade-style wave. I just smiled back. Everyone thought he was gay, and although that didn't bother me, I didn't want everyone thinking I was gay too. After school I went straight to the arcade as usual. Ricky was there. I started noticing the skate punks hanging out too. Maybe they'd been there for a long time and I just hadn't paid attention to them before. "Is Kwan here?" I asked him. "No, he's working." "Has that guy been in?" "The one he's supposed to give the number to? No, I haven't seen him." I then did something I probably should have done a long time ago. I walked to Evan's house. I took one wrong turn and was a little scared to be lost in that neighborhood, but I retraced my steps and found the place. Finding it was nothing compared to figuring out what to do once I'd found it. I didn't want to just walk up and ring the doorbell. What if Evan's father answered? What if Evan answered? I watched the house for several minutes and didn't see anyone moving around inside. I crept onto the porch, staying out of view of the windows, and waited for signs of life. The street was deserted except for little kids playing across in another yard. Finally I built up enough nerve to peer into the window. The living room was slightly less messy than I had seen it before. The same dilapidated furniture was there, but the beer bottles and pizza boxes were in different places. Or else they were different bottles and different boxes. That was more likely. What I could see of the kitchen was old and dirty, but at least well-organized. Clean dishes were stacked in the drainer and the table was clear. At the risk of trespassing I wandered carefully around back. Evan's window was too far up to look into, but it was closed anyway. I began to think no one was home. I went full circle around the house. At the side I hadn't seen was a small trench that exposed a corroded steel pipe. Tracks in the fresh dirt were about my size: Evan's. The plumbing, I thought. He complained about it before. I thought of leaving a note, but then reconsidered. What if his father found it? I made my way back to the arcade, more dejected than ever. To my surprise, Tony was there playing video games. "Hi," he said when he recognized me. "I was hoping you were here." "I had to run an errand." "Well, you said you weren't here all the time. Do you want to go out to the van?" "Sure." "I'm so fucking horny," he said when we were alone in the van. "Yeah, it happens." He was a little uncomfortable. "Um, look, Josh," he began. "I don't know how to say this. I ... the first time we met I was a jerk." "You already apologized for that," I said. "I know, but I still feel bad about it." "Don't worry about it." "Yeah, well, lemme finish. My dad thinks that being a stud with women is like the ultimate thing. He goes totally apeshit over anything remotely gay. He thinks all fags should be lined up and shot. So when I found out you and Steve were ... you know, doing stuff, I just kinda reacted like my dad would." "It's really not a problem," I persisted. "It is for me. I mean, I have a lot of shit to deal with. There's my dad, who's Mr. Straight, Fuck 'Em Til They Drop, and then there's my mom, who is trying to be sainted or something. She thinks I shouldn't even jerk off." "That sucks." "All the other guys think I'm scoring with every girl I meet. But of course none of the girls want to get near me because they think I want to fuck them." "Well, don't you?" "Yes, but that's not the point. I can't even talk to a girl without her thinking I'm trying to get her in bed. Maybe I just want to talk." "Why are you telling me all this?" "I don't know. I guess I thought you'd understand." "Are you a virgin?" He looked at me sharply, then deflated. "Yeah," he said to the floor. "But you tell everyone that you aren't." "I suppose. It's what they expect me to say. Anytime someone sees me with a girl they ask me if she's good in bed." "Have you had any kind of sex with a girl?" "Sort of," he said. "When I was a freshman a girl let me play with her breasts through her shirt." "You've never had an orgasm with a girl?" "I've never had an orgasm with anything but my right hand. At least until the other day." "Did you like it?" "Of course. That was totally cool." "But it was gay sex, and now you're wondering if you're gay." "No," he started. "Well, kind of. I know I'm not gay. I just figure if I'm totally straight, why did I like it so much when you sucked me off?" I laughed a little. "You know," I said. "A lot of the guys I have sex with aren't gay. They all claim they're straight, and they are. But they're tired of jacking off and they have girlfriends who won't give them any kind of sex at all. So I'm what's left. I suck them off because I enjoy it, and they like getting sucked. So everybody wins." "Yeah, but it's still letting some guy have sex with you." "That doesn't make you gay," I pointed out. "What does?" "Lots of stuff. When you have dirty dreams, do you dream of boys?" "No." "Do you fantasize about boys when you're jerking off?" "No." "Sounds straight to me." "Well, that's not quite all of it. I had a dream last night, and you were sucking me off." "A wet dream?" "No, but I woke up and jacked off." "Still, that's not being gay. That's just being horny." "It felt so good when you did it. Jerking off just isn't as fun anymore." "I know how you feel." "I guess I didn't mean to dump all over you. I just get pissed off." "I can deal with it," I said. "But I assume we came out here so I could suck your cock." "Right," he said with a smile. He started undoing his pants. "Would you do me a favor?" I asked. "Sure," he said. "Take off your shirt this time, too." "How come?" "Steve said you're a wrestler, right?" "Yeah." "I just want to see your muscles." This seemed to please him, and in a smooth motion he slipped his shirt over his head. His chest was not bulky like a weightlifter, but it was contoured in a sexy sort of way. His nipples were tiny and dark. The hair under his arms was dark, but unlike the slender boys I normally made out with, his arm and chest muscles made his armpit deep. His chest was completely smooth. "Do you like it?" he asked. I nodded. He brought his arm up and flexed his bicep. "Hard as a rock," he said, motioning for me to feel. And I did feel it, probably a little more sensually than he intended. It was rock-hard. His upper body was powerful, but not in the false, artificial way that comes from bodybuilding. These were muscles that had been built the natural way, the product of hard work. I held his upper arm for a minute, feeling Tony's rippling muscles underneath. Then I moved to his shoulder and down onto his chest. I brushed each of his pecs lightly with my fingertips. He wasn't used to this sort of thing, I supposed. I'm sure he liked showing off his body to anyone who cared to see it, but I don't think he expected anyone to take such an interest in it. I felt his stomach, which was lightly washboarded. It was hard too. Then I slipped my hand down and cupped his crotch for a moment. "How about you," he whispered. "What?" "Take off your shirt too." "Why?" "Let me see your chest. I did as he asked, now ashamed of my weakling physique. "Make a muscle." I flexed my bicep. It wasn't as pathetic as Kyle would have managed, but it was no Arnold Schwarzenegger either. Tony grasped my arm firmly. "You got some strength there," he said. "You just need to build it up. Do this." He puffed out his chest. I tried to imitate, and laughed. He laughed too, then felt my chest. Not sensually as I had done, but roughly, as a guy would do to another guy in public. "You've got muscle here, too. Would you believe me if I said I looked like you when I was your age?" "No." "How old are you?" "Fourteen." "I was kind of scrawny when I was fourteen. When you get older it's easier to build muscle." "That's not what my dad said." "Not that old. I mean when you're fifteen or sixteen. Then you do push-ups and stuff like that." He paused for a minute. "Do I have a sexy chest?" "Hell yes," I responded. "I mean to a girl," he said. "I suppose so. I think it's sexy." He smiled when I said that. I was really getting horny now too, and so I knelt between his legs. "Are you ready?" "Yeah," he said. I finished unfastening his pants and slid them down his legs to his ankles. His thighs were smooth too, and a little dark hair adorned his calves. "No fancy underwear today?" I asked. He was wearing the standard Fruit of the Looms. "I've only got the one pair." I released his cock, which lay hot on his belly, inflated to the size I remember. His balls were lightly hairy. I pulled his cock toward me and started licking it up and down. Tony put his hand on my head. "Oh, yeah, dude. Suck me." I obeyed, lowering my mouth down on his rampaging teen rod. it was as big as I remembered it feeling, and Tony was as vocal about it as I remembered. I deep-throated him a couple of times, although he was kind of big for doing that the whole time. "Oh, fucking yes, Josh," he encouraged. I stepped up my rhythm, keeping my lips wrapped tightly around his young shaft. It gave me a sort of perverse pleasure to be in control this way of somebody two years older than me. I controlled him with the tip of my tongue, running along the underside of his penis head, and with my lips pressed tightly around his hot, throbbing meat, and with my cheeks applying as much suction as I could manage, and with my throat, which gripped his sculptured glans on the downstrokes. "Oh yeah," he gasped. "Oh yeah, yes, yes, I'm almost there." I fondled his balls with my thumb, holding his cock just with my mouth. Then he erupted with predictable force, arching his back and ramming his full length down my throat as he had done before. In the few seconds of his climax my nose was buried in his patch of curly pubic hair. The odors were intoxicating. There is a peculiar kind of sweat that only forms in the crotch of a teenage boy, and it was my abrosia. It was a warm, musky odor, a blend of sweat, sperm, and the other natural odors of his body. Relishing these smells of young manhood helped me cope with the buckets of cum Tony was pumping down my throat. He sat panting for a few minutes, and after a polite interval I let his limp cock slide out of my mouth. It had been a long time since sucking a boy's cock had turned me on like that. Sure, with Evan it was different since he was intentionally trying to please me, but Tony was just sitting there fucking my face. "Oh shit that was good," said Tony. I stood and pulled my cock out urgently. I had to jerk off, had to satisfy the promptings of my body. I pumped eagerly, not caring that I was doing so pretty much right in Tony's face. "Do you want me to do that thing?" he asked. "What thing?" I replied, only half listening. "That thing that Steve and you did last time." He was referring to the particular way of jacking me off. "Do you want to?" I asked. "Sure, why not," he said. Obviously getting a blow job had temporarily resolved his concerns about gay sex. I sat between his legs, feeling the warmth of his teen skin against mine. He was sweaty, just a little, and the moisture rubbed off on my own skin. I didn't mind. He leaned forward, enveloping me with his strong athlete's body. "I've never done this ... " he began. "It's just like doing it to yourself," I cut him off. "That's why we sit like this." He took my cock in his strong hand. His fingers wrapped around my shaft easily. He started pumping me with powerful strokes. It wouldn't be long at this rate, I thought. His chest pressed against my back and stuck to it with sweat. I felt his breath against the back of my head. I could barely breathe; my throat was still sticky with his cum. Regardless of his misgivings earlier, he was stroking my meat with great gusto. His cock hardened against my ass. My right hand was on his forearm, guiding his masturbatory strokes. I put my left hand on his thigh to prepare for orgasm. It was like fucking a Coke bottle, the way he gripped my teen prick. I gasped and unleashed my boiling cum. Because of his death grip, the first wad shot several inches in the air, landing on his arm. He immediately had the presence of mind to aim my cock back toward my chest, and the remainder of my jism fell there. He let go of my cock quickly and it fell against my thigh. I sensed the thrill of it had expired for him and he was now facing the reality of having jerked off a boy who was sitting naked in his lap. Not the kind of thing you want a reputation for if you're an athlete. So I stood up and even wiped my cum off his arm with my shirt. "Thanks," I said. "You did great." I didn't know if he'd want to be complimented on his proficiency at gay sex, but I figured being honest was worth something. We put our clothes back on silence, deliberately and methodically. "Want a ride home?" he asked. "Yeah, that'd be good," I said and settled into the passenger seat. Tony had been so talkative at first that his silence on the drive home disturbed me a little. But maybe he was just in the old post-orgasm depression and drowsiness. I didn't feel much like talking either. He pulled into my driveway. Sharon and Becky were playing baseball in the front yard. "Thanks for the ride," I said. "No problem. Thanks for the, uh, sex thing." "Hey, it takes a real man to do what you did." Tony just laughed. "Just don't tell anyone, okay?" "I'm very good at keeping secrets," I assured him. Becky and Sharon watched me go into the house. I wondered if Becky had told Sharon about her clandestine cock-fondling. Probably so. Sharon had pussy hair and tits, and fucked herself with a hairbrush, but had probably never seen a real cock. Well, up close anyway. Becky had one up on her; she'd actually felt a real cock. But you never know. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 17 After dinner I watched TV. I didn't feel much like doing anything. Evan was most likely gone completely out of my life. Well, not really, but that's how it seemed at the time. I channel-surfed for a good half hour without finding anything to entertain me. The phone rang. I jumped, but Becky had already beaten me to it. "Josh! Telephone!" she cried. I ran like a maniac and ripped the receiver out of her hand. "Hello?" I said. "Hi," said a puzzled voice at the other end. It was Jeff. "Are you okay?" "I thought you were somebody else," I said. "Are you studying for Algebra?" he asked. "No." "Do you want to study for it?" "Not really." "Okay, let me rephrase this. I'm looking at serious failage unless you help me with a couple of things." Algebra is no cure for boredom, but I agreed to help Jeff out. He showed up a minute later with his notebook at text. We retired to the bedroom. Jeff wasn't clueless, but he tended to miss things that weren't obvious. He was smart, but his popularity in grade school meant that he conned a lot of kids into doing his homework for him if he didn't feel like it. "I just don't get these rationals. They're irrational," he said with a grin. "Look," I said. "It's just one thing divided by another. What's X divided by X?" "X?" "No, dipshit, look. Anything divided by itself is one." "Oh, right." "So if you have X squared and you divide by X, what do you get?" "Um, X?" "Right." We went on like this for half an hour, working the examples. "Okay, do this problem," I said when he finally understood. "I'll do it too, and we'll see if we get the same answer." We were lying side by side on the bed, on our stomachs. "Hey," I said. "Are you looking at my answers?" He was suspiciously glancing in my direction. "I'm stuck." "Work it out yourself," I said, and turned so that my head was at his feet. We were laying on our sides now. I finished the problem and turned my attention to Jeff's sexy legs. He was wearing those same kind of onion-skin shorts. His calves were perched one on top of the other, and his smooth thighs were pressed together. His knees were bent, but he straightened them momentarily. The onion-skin fabric was still pushed upwards, so I could see right along his thigh to his underwear. His tight white jocky shorts bulged with his teen equipment. I could see right where his thighs disappeared under the leg band. As he shifted his legs slightly, his balls shifted too. I felt myself starting to get horny. How easy it would be to reach out and touch his calf, to feel his soft dark fuzz, and then to move my hand upward to his smooth, muscular thigh, and from there right under those onion-skins to his cotton-covered crotch. His bulging member would be soft, but his crotch would be pleasantly warm. I would lie next to his warm body and feel his breath on my face. "Hey," said Jeff. "Are you looking at my crotch?" I awoke from my reverie with a start to see Jeff with a faint smile. "It's not like you're doing much to hide it," I pointed out. "What do you mean?" he asked. "Just like before. When you wear these shorts you can see right up the leg." Jeff already knew I found him very attractive, and he had been doing a good job so far of dealing with that. Of course my raging boner was pretty obvious in my jeans, which were only a few inches from his face. "How's this?" he asked, pressing his shorts around his thighs. "No distractions?" "Well, you do have sexy legs..." I began. "Jeez, do I gotta wear pants around you?" "Well, you could NOT wear pants," I teased. "You're such a pervert," he shook his head. "Hey, you're the one who's hot on an eleven-year-old girl," I pointed out. "Oh, yeah," he said. "I forgot about that. By the way, do you still have that tape?" "Yeah, why?" "I want to watch it again." "That's a problem. We have to hook it up to the VCR downstairs with all this adapter stuff." I pointed to the box of camera equipment on the floor. "So?" "So everybody's here. Becky's probably watching TV downstairs and Mom is somewhere." "Oh." "What did you get for the problem?" I pointed to his paper. "Oh, now you're interested in math?" "It's the only way I can get this massive hard-on to go down," I said, pointing to my crotch. "X over two," he said. "No, it's X squared over two." "How do you figure?" I started to show him, but then saw the mistake in my own work. "See how distracting you are?" I said. "You better hope you don't get horny during the test. You won't be able to choke the chicken in class." "Choke the chicken?" "You know, jerk off." "I've never heard of choking the chicken before." "Sure, spanking the monkey, pumping the fireman." "Whoa, pumping the fireman?" "Yeah. You know. With the helmet?" "You've totally lost me." "You're kidding. I thought you of all people would know all those." "Sorry." "Okay, I'll show you. But only because I know you're dying to see my dick." He got up and closed the door and locked it. Then he came back to the bed and pulled his shorts down. His semi-erect cock looked so inviting, but I had to restrain myself. He lifted his cock up so that it was in the erect state, then he took his pen and drew eyes, a nose, and mouth on the underside of his cock, just under the head. "See," he said. "Fireman?" It took me a second. I closed my eyes and laughed at the absurdity of it. "I suppose I have to draw a chicken or a monkey on mine now?" Jeff held out the pen challengingly. I took it and pulled my own pants down. My cock was considerably harder than his, which made for easier drawing. Instead of a chicken or a monkey (I still wasn't sure how a penis looked like a chicken or a monkey), I drew a silly face on mine. Jeff doubled over. I was still sitting on the bed, and I leaned back so that my dick was pointing straight up and made it dance while humming silly music. Jeff was laughing so hard he started crying. I, on the other hand, was too horny to laugh much. Holding my cock and looking at Jeff's hardening rod wasn't helping. "Excuse me, I have to take care of something," I said. I started stroking my dick seriously. "Feel free to join me, if you want." "Oh, what the hell," he said, and plopped down on the bed next to me. "But this time keep your hands off. I mean your lips off." "If you say so." "Hey, I can do this myself." We lay on my bed, our butts on the edge and our feet on the floor, laying crosswise side by side, but not close enough to touch. "This is kind of boring," said Jeff after a while. "Fantasize about some truly gorgeous babe," I said. "That's no fun anymore." "Hey," I said, sitting up. "Have you ever had a condom on?" "No, why?" "Want to try one?" Without waiting for an answer I went to the dresser (in tiny steps, because my pants were around my ankles) and brought back my box of condoms. I pulled one out and handed it to Jeff, who started unwrapping it. He was waiting for me to show him how to put it on, so I unrolled it down my shaft and showed him. He did the same thing. Then I sat down and we resumed stroking. "This feels so weird," he said. "It's almost like it's not even my dick I'm playing with." We masturbated together in silence broken only by our panting and muted grunts. I kept my promise and didn't make any moves for him. But I did watch with fascination as the tip of his condom filled with milky teen cum. Then I stroked myself into the home stretch and filled my own condom. We lay there for a minute recovering. Then I sat up. "Take it off carefully," I said. "If you do it right you won't make a mess." He slid the latex off slowly, leaving only a glistening sheen behind. I took mine off too. "Want to see something totally gross?" I said. "What?" he asked. I took that to mean yes. I took his condom from him, tilted my head back, and let his cum drip out of the condom into my mouth. Then I sucked on it, flattening the sides together. Jeff watched in morbid fascination. I did the same to my own condom. "You are truly sick," he said, shaking his head. "Whose tastes better?" "It all tastes pretty much the same," I said. "Some is sweeter. It depends on what you eat." "What does it taste like." "Salty, and sweet. And sort of like mint." "Mint?" "I mean kind of tangy, you know, like the aftertaste you get from a breath mint." "Weird." "Try it sometime." "What?" "I mean taste your own. It won't kill you." "I don't think I could. I'd chicken out." I touched my finger to the rim of one of the condoms and got a drop of liquefying sperm. "Here," I said, holding my finger close to his face. "No way," he said. "Come on," I urged. "It's the only way you'll know." "I don't want to know that bad." "Sure you do. It'll drive you crazy until you do." I shoved my finger toward his mouth and he backed away. I put my arm around his shoulders to keep him from getting away, and before he could block my arm I'd pressed my fingertip between his lips. He jerked my arm away. "You shit!" he said, spitting and wiping his lips with his arm. "You goddamn faggot!" He was genuinely angry this time. "I said no!" He stood up and pulled his pants up, still wiping his mouth. "What the fuck did you do that for?" He threw all his notes into his notebook and slammed it shut, grabbing his textbook in the same motion. "Jeff..." I began, but it was too late. He'd unlocked the door and was down the stairs and out the door before I could think of anything to say. I pulled my pants up, dejected. I'd tried for so long to make Jeff my friend. We'd discovered sex together. Well, sort of. And we'd shared a lot of personal thoughts. Now he thought I was a goddamn faggot. And I supposed I was. I wasn't good enough to be in his world. I never should have tried. He was the popular elite, who commanded respect from everyone around him. I was a geeky boy who got sex only from other geeky boys. I'd stuck out my neck to save Jeff's reputation once and earned his respect, only to do some damn fool stunt and ruin the whole thing. "Did Jeff go home?" asked Mom, who had appeared at the door. "Yeah," I said. "What's the matter?" "I did a dumb thing," I said. Mom had noticed the used condoms on the floor. I don't know what she was thinking. "Real dumb?" she asked. "Probably." "Want to talk about it?" "Not really," I said. "Okay. I hope you can work it out," she said. "Me too," I said after she left. THE ARCADE by The Encephalon chapter 18 Jeff gave me the silent treatment at the bus stop the next day. He didn't even look at me. All during the algebra final I thought of what I'd done last night and how stupid it was. The last page of the exam was all rationals, and I wondered how Jeff had done. I'd probably never find out. I forgot that it was the day for cleaning out the lockers. Mine was full of junk, most of which I pitched in the trash can. But there was still a bunch of stuff to be taken home. This pissed me off because I'd planned to go to the arcade after school, but now I'd have to haul all that stuff home on the school bus. Everyone else had the same idea, so the school bus was crowded. I saw Jeff several rows ahead of me. He didn't turn or talk to anyone. At our bus stop Jeff got off and started for his house. I decided to catch up to him, but there were several people in between us. He was almost to his door before I could get free. "Jeff!" I yelled. "Wait up!" He ignored me. He would have escaped except that his door was locked and he had to find his key. "Hold on," I said. "Get away from me," said Jeff. "I want to apologize," I said. "Too late for that," he replied. "No it isn't," I persisted. "Look, I was a jerk." "You can say that again." "I was a jerk." "Very funny." "No, I mean it." I tried to remember all the things I'd thought of in class that day. "Look, in some ways this is as hard for me as it is for you. I'm not trying to get sympathy, I just want to say that..." I faltered for a minute. "Did you have trouble wondering what to do or what to say around me?" "I suppose." "I have the same trouble. I mean, you're my friend. I'm also attracted to you, but I know I shouldn't be. I mean, I know that you want to have a girlfriend and have sex with girls. I don't want to change that. But you kind of, you know, think it's okay for me to like you, I mean physically, in some ways." Jeff had lost some of his bluster. "I guess you're comfortable with me being gay for my sake. It's sometimes hard for me to remember just how hard that is for you. You're really cool about it. And I guess I took advantage of that." "I'll say." "It didn't seem like a big deal at the time. But I just want to say I'm sorry." We stood looking at each other's feet for a minute. "It really didn't taste that bad," said Jeff at last. I laughed a bit. I suppose that was Jeff's way of accepting my apology. "Not that I'd want it on a pizza," he said. "I'm trying to be serious." "I know," he said. "It's just that every time we do stuff together, you keep doing gay stuff with me." "Yeah. That's my fault. I shouldn't." "You caught me by surprise. It wasn't so much that you made me eat sperm. I just didn't want you forcing it on me. I probably would have tried it on my own." "Still, it was my fault and I'm sorry. Friends?" "Yeah, friends," he said. A great burden had been lifted. I resolved to be more careful around Jeff. "So how did you do on the algebra final?" I asked. "Pretty good." "Even the rationals?" "Yeah, those were easy. How about you?" "Piece of cake, except I didn't think the rationals were easy." "Maybe I fucked them all up, then," he said. Mom's car wasn't in the driveway. "If you want to come over to my place, I'll make a regular copy of that tape for you." "You can do that?" "Sure." "Okay, let me drop off my stuff." He found his key and left his stuff inside the door. We walked the half block to my house. "Mom? Becky?" I yelled when I opened the door. No one home. "Good," I said to Jeff. "Get box of stuff from my room and bring it downstairs." I went down to find a blank videocassette. Jeff followed a minute later carrying the box and trailing wires. "I hope I got everything," he said. I found the adapter and plugged everything in. After making sure everything was working, I pushed Record and started the camcorder. We watched in silence as Sharon fingered herself and then fucked herself with her hairbrush, then Becky followed suit. It was only ten minutes or so of video, but it made a nice tent in Jeff's shorts. I thought that under the circumstances jerking off would be a bad thing, so I didn't pursue it. But Jeff was horny as hell, and it was making me horny as well. When the tape cut out I rewound it and handed it to Jeff. "Happy chicken-choking," I said. "Do you really get off on my sister?" "Actually I get off more on the other girl. She's pretty wild." "Whatever," I said. "Remember, we were that horny when we were their age." I followed Jeff upstairs and out the door. I wasn't in the mood to hang around the house. It was too late to go to the arcade, and I didn't have any homework to do. Jeff took off down the sidewalk, no doubt to play the tape and jerk off. I got my bike out of the garage. The tires still had air after winter. It used to be David's bike. Dad bought it for him after he got straight A's his first year in high school. I rode up the hill, toward no place in particular. I passed the park and noticed it was full of little kids playing. Women were in bathing suits getting tans. I kept going. The small strip mall near the park was bustling with customers. Most of the stores were small, one of a kind places. At the top of the hill was the street that Kyle lived on. I could see his house, a palatial prairie-style modern mansion with professional landscaping. I toyed briefly with the idea of riding up to say hello, but then dismissed it. I didn't have much in common with Kyle, and he sure wasn't going to let me have sex with him in his house. I coasted back down the hill and explored some of the side streets. I didn't know most of the people. They were familiar faces, but I had no idea what kind of lives they lived. I was plummetting down a street when a familiar site caught my eye. Tony's van -- his mother's van, really -- sat parked in a driveway. Three boys played basketball outside. I instinctively locked my brakes and the scraping tires made them all look up. It was Steve and Tony and a younger boy I didn't recognize. They didn't recognize me at first, but Tony shielded his eyes and then waved. "Hey, Josh!" he yelled. With my residual speed I pulled into the driveway. All three boys were shirtless, and a fine patina of sweat covered their torsos. We exchanged greetings. "What are you doing around here?" asked Steve. "Just riding around. I didn't know you lived this close." The younger boy looked a lot like Tony. They must be brothers. "This is Joe," said Tony, indicating the youngster. "He's my brother. Joe, this is Josh, a friend of ours. Want to play some ball with us?" asked Tony. "I'm not very good," I said. "Neither is Joe," said Tony. "I am too," protested Joe. "You guys hog the ball all the time." It turned out Joe was better than I was. He at least had some grace. I dribbled on my foot most of the time, and all my shots were blocked. I was playing to be polite, and this became apparent to Tony after a minute. "Let's go do something else," he suggested. "Sure, when we're ahead," said Joe. "What do you want to do?" asked Steve. "I dunno." Steve leaned over and whispered something in Tony's ear. They had a whispered conversation. Tony was clearly not pleased at what Steve had said. "No way," he kept whispering. Finally Steve turned to Joe. "Can you keep a secret?" he asked. "Sure," said Joe. "I mean really. This is top secret. You can't tell anyone, especially Mom and Dad." That was the best kind of secret. It meant you were going to have fun. Joe nodded eagerly. "We need to talk to Josh alone for a minute." We took a few steps away. "We're thinking of going to my place for some sex," said Steve. "Joe's going to tag along no matter what we do. If we don't let him come, he'll tell their mom we went off and did something in private, and that'll make her suspicious. Do you mind if he comes along and jerks off or watches?" "How old is he?" I asked. "Eleven," said Tony. "Sounds good to me," I said. Steve's house was only a block away. His parents weren't home, but we went to his bedroom and locked the door anyway. There were football posters on the wall, and football equipment scattered all over. It wasn't too hard to figure out what kind of team Steve was on at school. The boys were all conveniently shirtless, and Joe gawked at them as they removed their shoes and pants. "Starting now is what you can't tell anybody about," said Steve. Joe was awed at seeing his big brother's erect cock. He was even more excited seeing Steve strip down. They stood massaging their erections while I undressed. "I can only do one of you at a time," I said. "You go first," said Steve. Tony sat on the bed and spread his legs. His pose was openly obscene, and Joe had evidently never seen his brother do anything like it. Joe was watching my erection bounce between my legs. He was squeezing his own crotch. At eleven, he probably had a decent erection himself. I took Tony's cock into my mouth and repeated what I'd done the other day to him. He was a little nervous about "performing" in front of his brother, but a few minutes into his blowjob he had forgotten about it entirely and was completely wrapped up in the number I was doing on his penis. Steve was watching with great interest as well. "Have you ever seen that before?" he asked Joe. Joe was too dumbfounded to speak. He shook his head. "Do you ever play with yourself?" Another shake. "Here, try it," said Steve. "Take off your pants." Out of the corner of my eye I saw Joe strip off his pants, embarrassed perhaps at the hairless erection that jutted up from between his legs. It was probably as large as Manny's, but had no pubic hair whatsoever. "Do this," said Steve, and stroked his cock. Joe tried to mimic him. "Does that feel good?" Joe nodded. "Just keep doing that." Meanwhile, Tony was ready to burst. He arched his back and grunted, filling my mouth with hot cum. "My turn," said Steve, and held his cock out for me. I was already kneeling between Tony's legs, so all I had to do was turn slightly. Steve was dripping precum, and I lapped it up eagerly. Tony was sitting back on his elbows, watching the display as his cock shriveled against his thigh. Joe was inches from the action as Steve rocked his hips back and forth, sliding his hard teenage cock between my lips. I was able to stroke my own meat as I blew Steve. Joe was trying to do the same thing as I was, although he wasn't sure what he was supposed to be accomplishing. Tony, now mostly recovered, looked at Joe, almost ashamed. But Joe was too engrossed with us having sex right there. Steve put a hand on my head to help hold it still while he fucked my mouth. "Oh, fuck," he said. "Here it comes." Steve had evidently been saving up, because I had a hard time swallowing it as fast as he shot it. A drop leaked out around the corner of my mouth and dribbled down my chin. It hung in a long string before falling onto my chest. Joe looked at it in utter fascination. "That's sperm," said Steve. "You probably have a couple of years before you have to worry about that." I pulled away from his cock, which was limp enough to hang down as it cleared my lips. Joe was still having a hard time stroking it right. "Do you want a turn?" I asked him. "Me?" he asked. "You'd do that to me too?" "Sure," I said. "Unless you don't want me to." Joe looked at Steve and then at Tony. "Might as well give it a try, Joe," said Tony. "Get on the bed," I said. Tony stood up to make room. Steve was already putting on his underwear and shorts. "Lie out flat." Joe put his head on the pillow and spread his legs a bit. He really did look attractive. His and Tony's skin was slightly darker than Steve, who was really quite fair. His body was smooth, but had no baby fat on it. He didn't have the same muscles as Tony, who had obviously worked them up, but he did have the same basic body shape. He was a cute little guy. I sat on the bed beside his hips. "Now if I do anything you don't like, just say so and I'll stop." Joe nodded. I slipped my thumb betwee the base of his cock and his belly, with my fingers cupping his tight young balls. I aimed his cock at my mouth and slid just the head in. Joe inhaled a bit, but otherwise did nothing. Then I slid the entire shaft in and worked my tongue over his glans. "Oh," the boy gasped. He hadn't expected this. I slowly began pumping my head up and down his shaft, fingering his balls as I went. He instinctively bucked his hips up from the bed to meet my head strokes. These Italians must have a strong fucking instinct, I thought. The boy knew exactly what to do even though he'd probably never done anything like this before. "It's okay," Tony said, bending over to look into his brother's face. "You're going to love this." We continued for a few minutes. Joe's breathing got heavier. Tony's hand was on his brother's shoulder, reasurring him. Then with incomparable pre-teen fury he lifted his hips off the bed and gasped in a primal expression of extasy. I felt his crotch muscles spasm, although no liquid came from his hard cock. After a dozen or so convulsions he fell back on the bed. The older boys expected me to stop, but I had another idea. Ricky could have multiple orgasms because he was young. I thought Joe might be able to as well, so I kept going, kept milking his cock with my tongue. Sure enough, within a few seconds Joe was back at the height of climax, spasming beween his legs. I gave Joe three more orgasms before my jaw ached too much to continue. The youth was almost unconscious, his young body bathed in sweat. He was panting heavily, but he had a satisfied grin on his face. His dark brown locks were plastered to his forehead. "Holy shit," said Steve. Tony was too amazed to comment. I could hold out no longer. I knelt straddling the boy's hips and pumped by cock furiously. It was only seconds before I spewed my own teen load all over Joe's stomach and chest. Even in his stupor he watched the white gobs emerge from my cock and decorate his torso. He lifted his head and looked at the glistening pools, then fell back exhausted against the pillow. I got down on all fours and licked the sperm from the young boy's body, then dried him with my shirt. Tony and I dressed quickly. "Is he going to be all right?" asked Tony. "Sure," I said. "Let him rest for a few minutes and get him something to drink. He'll be fine." "What's the deal?" "It's something you can do when you're young like him." "Cool. Thanks, Josh. That was really fun." "No problem. I should probably get home now." I said goodbye to Joe, who waved from the bed. I hope I made a friend.
