Brad’s Search : Part 38


I’m still holding James as he wakes and shifts himself onto his back. My now-flaccid cock slides right out. He opens his eyes, looks at me, and smiles. “Morning.”

“Morning. How’re you feeling?”

“Pretty good, though I may not be able to stand up after what happened last night.”

“Oh, come on. I didn’t pound your ass that hard.”

“No, but it’s been a while since I’ve had a good pounding.”

“Me, too.”

“Well then, we may have to revisit our new jockstrap fetish, but with a little role-reversal. But not right now, of course. You’ve got to take me to work, remember?”

“Yeah.” Guess I’m not getting any running in today.

“Come on. Let’s go shower.”

We stand under the hot water and wash each other’s body from head to toe, paying special attention to the cock, balls, and ass. Once we’re all clean, we hop out and dry off.

We return to the bedroom. I walk to the dresser to grab my work clothes, but James interrupts. “Ever eaten breakfast naked?”

“I can’t say that I have, at least not that I can remember.”

“Want to?”

I think for a second or two. “Sure. Why the hell not?”

So we walk downstairs, naked.

“Eggs and bacon?”

I nod. “Sure. They were delicious last time.”

James heats up the pan, retrieves some eggs and bacon from the fridge, and starts cooking. The loud sizzling sound instantly wakes up my taste buds.

I sit at the island. “How did you get to become such a good cook?”

“Believe it or not, it’s one of the things Mom and I loved to do together. Because she smoked so much, she used to load all of our meals full of spices so she could taste them.”

“Smoking affects your sense of taste?”

James flips the eggs. “Apparently. Anyway, when I wasn’t pent up in my room, I was in the kitchen cooking with Mom. I learned a lot about what spices went best with which foods, learned about wine pairing - all kinds of stuff. That’s probably one of the only good things that came from her smoking habits.”

“I didn’t do much cooking with my mom. My parents got me a computer when I was young, so I spent a lot of time by myself doing all kinds of things on it.”

“Yeah, I kinda figured that.”

James turns off the fire and serves breakfast. I take a bite of my eggs, and some of the egg yolk drips onto my chest.

James points to where the yolk fell. “See? Good thing you’re not wearing any clothes!” He then leans down and licks the yolk right off my chest, then lifts his head and kisses me open-mouthed. I can taste the egg on his tongue. He then looks down at my cock, which is now getting harder and harder by the second. “Someone order sausage?”

“Too bad we have to go to work, or else we’d have time to eat it.”

“Oh well. Guess it’ll have to wait.”

We finish eating and rinse our plates off in the sink. We head upstairs, get dressed, gather our things, and head out the door. We get in the car and start on our way.

“James, can I ask you something about your parents?”

“Sure.”

“How was your father’s relationship with your mother when she was still alive?”

“Oh boy. This car ride won’t be long enough for me to tell you all about it, so I’ll just give you the short and simple version. We actually all got along as a family when I was younger. Things started going downhill when Paul turned thirteen. He got into some trouble - even landed in jail once.”

“Wait, this is the same Paul who became very religious?”

“Yes, but you’re getting ahead of me. He started getting into trouble, and that’s when Mom began down her path of self-destruction. Dad told him to straighten up, and Paul began to see how much his actions were negatively affecting Mom, so he did a complete one-eighty and turned to God - which was no problem for any of us, until I came out, that is.”

“What happened then?”

His voice turns somber. “Well, after I came out, Paul got even more religious, Mom got more destructive, and Dad was at a complete loss and didn’t know what to do.” He sniffles. “Paul and I shared a bedroom up until that point. We became real close and talked about everything under the sun, because we were pent up in that room most of the time because of Mom’s drinking and smoking. It was a huge blow to me when he flat out told Mom and Dad that he didn’t want to sleep in the same room as his gay brother. He moved into the guest bedroom we had and stayed there until he went off to college.”

I rest my hand on his thigh and give it a light rub to try to comfort him. He places his hand on top of mine, then suddenly squeezes it.

“Fuck! He hurt me so much, Brad. He stopped loving me and just left. How can Dad expect me to let this all go, just like that?”

I hold his hand. “I don’t think he expects you to just let it go, but this is obviously still strongly affecting you. Maybe he sees that and thinks talking to Paul will help heal the wounds.”

He wipes a tear from his eye. “I hope so. I just want to get this over with. I just want the pain to go away.”

“So do I. No one deserves this.”

We reach the law office and I park along the street. “Mind if I go in with you? I want to tell Willie myself that we’ve accepted his invitation to dinner on Friday.”

“Sure, you’re welcome to come in anytime.”

We walk inside and James leads me to his dad’s office. Willie sees me and stands up.

“Good morning, Brad. Please, step inside. What brings you here?”

I walk in and shake his hand. “Good morning, Willie. I’m just dropping James off and I have to be on my way, but I wanted to let you know that James and I would be delighted to join you for dinner on Friday.”

“Ah, that’s great to hear. I wanted to apologize to you for how I acted before. It was none of my business bringing up such sensitive topics, especially on the first day we met.”

“It’s OK, Willie. I know how things can get sometimes.”

“Thanks. I appreciate your understanding. Anyway, I should let you be on your way. I’ll see you on Friday.”

“See you then.”

I step out and walk up to James, who’s been waiting for me outside the office. “I’m heading out. I’ll see you when I get home.”

“All right, cutie. Thanks for everything.”

“Love you.”

“I love you, too.”

I give James a quick peck, and then we hug each other tightly. We break the hug, and I glance at Willie, who smiles at us. I wave goodbye to him, then turn around and head to work.

I spent most of the day yesterday trying as hard as I could to solve that problem the programmers had run into. What I thought could be solved in one day has now turned into two, then three, then four. On Friday, Eric runs to my office after he hears me scream in delight.

“I hope that was a good scream,” he quips.

“It was. I just figured out the problem.”

“About fucking time! What was it?”

“It was an order of operations issue in the formula we used to calculate eligibility of discounts on hotel rooms.”

His eyes widen. “Damn. It sucks that it took four days to figure it out, but I know anyone other than you would’ve taken much longer.”

I tilt my head to the side. “Aww, thanks! Don’t give me too much credit, though. With a project this big, it could’ve taken weeks to find this bug. And the hotel piece isn’t the only one that uses this code. This could have affected a lot more.”

“Well, I’m impressed that you fixed it so soon. You’ve worked pretty hard on this. I think you deserve an early start to your weekend.”

“Oh, Eric, you’re my favorite.”

“Shh. Don’t let anyone else hear you say that.” He smiles and winks at me.

I pack up and head home. I step in the door. James stands up from the couch. He’s still wearing the suit he had put on this morning. “Hey, you’re home early.”

“Yeah. I figured out that problem at work, and Eric let me leave early for the weekend as a reward, I guess.”

“Wow, that’s awesome! What was it?”

“It had to do with some mathematical formula in an obscure part of the code. It was hell to find and narrow down, but as soon as I found it, I felt so relieved.”

James walks up to me and gives me a kiss. “I just love having a smart boyfriend. We have some time before we have to get ready to meet Dad. How about I give you a reward of my own?”

He takes my hand and leads me to the couch. He unzips my pants, shoves his hand through the fly, and gropes my cock through my underwear for a few seconds. He then unbuckles my belt, undoes my pants, and slides them to the floor. He grabs the waistband of my briefs and pulls down. My cock springs out from under them, beckoning him to engulf it with his mouth.

He sits me down on the couch and kneels in front of me and gives me a congratulatory blowjob. I cum inside his mouth, and he hoists himself up and gives me a kiss.

“I hope I run into more of these kinds of problems at work.”

“Hey, even if you don’t, I still don’t mind sucking you off.”

I laugh. I reach for his crotch. “All right. Your turn.”

He stops my hand from going any further. “No, not right now. That was your reward, just for you. We have to leave to meet Dad now.”

I bend over and reach down to the floor to pull up my underwear and pants as I stand up. I buckle up my belt.

James kisses me quickly. “Ready to go?”

I nod. “Yep.”

We step out the door and into his car. We head out to the restaurant Willie had invited us to.
