When Jared woke in the morning, he carefully got out of bed. Liam sensed the movement and got up as well. They both stood there and looked at Mark spooned behind Conner and holding him tight. Conner's arms were over Mark's arms so he couldn't let go. It was really cute to see.

As they left, they pulled the bedroom door shut. Once out in the kitchen, Liam started the coffee while Jared went to the bathroom. Jared was standing and relieving himself when Liam came up from behind and hugged him, kissing his neck.

"You're making it difficult to take a piss and not spray the wall," said Jared.

"You don't like it?"

"I just said its difficult not to piss on the wall, I didn't say stop."

Liam started the shower and closed the bathroom door. "We don't want anyone walking in do we?"

"I like you're thinking, Liam," replied Jared as he finished.

Liam stepped up and used the toilet right after. Jared was behind him and reached down his underwear and started to play with Liam's balls from behind. He finished and they threw their underwear onto the floor, stepping into the shower together.

They made passionate love in the shower. Jared gave himself willingly to Liam against the wall. Their urgent need satisfied, they washed and got out. They walked back to the bedroom naked and suddenly remembered Mark and Conner. "Oh well," said Liam and walked in naked followed by Jared. They looked at the bed and saw the two young men wide awake and staring at them.

"Ok, so you have seen them now, boys. This is the way we usually are here," said Jared.

"Shit, they are both huge!" said Mark with a smile.

"Liam, what would you say about fair play?" asked Jared.

"Absolutely, Holmes," he said and they dove onto the bed. Mark and Conner were giggling and laughing as Jared and Liam got under the covers. Mark let out a yell when Jared threw Mark's underwear across the room. Liam got Conner's pulled off and threw them as well. Liam and Jared started to tickle them mercilessly. Finally, Conner yelled, "I am going to piss the bed."

Liam said, "Both of you to the bathroom. Go!"

The two young men got out of bed with obvious hard-ons and ran through the door.

Jared said, "Cute butts."

Liam added, "Conner is hung like you, Jared. Mark isn't bad either."

The two of them got out of bed and made it up. They heard the toilet flush. Liam walked over to the washroom as the door opened. "Ok, you two. Get in the shower."

"Together?" asked Conner.

"Sure, why not? Just clean the shots off the walls when you are finished," said Liam.

The boys ducked back into the washroom and they heard the shower start up. Jared and Liam were each drinking coffee at the table when they came out. They were both naked, and not too self-conscious now by the way they walked.

Conner came to the table and sat down. "Jared, is it a sin to masturbate?"

"Not at all Conner. It is a natural release. Did you enjoy it?" asked Jared.

Conner answered yes before he even thought about it coming out of his mouth, then blushed.

"Conner, we will get some lotion for you to use when you want to do it. It cuts down the friction and feels better," said Liam.

"Dad was always yelling at my brother and me, accusing us of masturbating. He would check our underwear and our bed sheets to make sure we hadn't done it. He was ranting all the time about it being a sin. When I had wet dreams, he was furious and beat me," said Conner.

"You want to masturbate here, it's fine. You want to do it in your room and not have us walk in on you, close the door. We will respect your space and knock before we come in," said Liam.

Conner thought and then stood. He gave Liam and Jared a kiss on the cheek and then ran to his room.

"We have a lot of work to do with that one, don't we," said Liam. Jared nodded his head in agreement.

The two of them returned, wearing brief underwear. They both looked good in them.

"You guys know how to fix breakfast?" asked Jared.

"Sure do," replied Mark.

"You guys do breakfast and we will clean up," said Liam.

The found eggs and ham. Mark cut up some potatoes and fried them as well. Conner found bread for toast. It wasn't a bad meal made by the young men. While Liam and Jared were cleaning up, they told the boys to get dressed so they could head to the hospital. Soon they were all dressed and heading out. Jared called Tyler and asked him about Conner's father's body. It would be released later in the day. Jared called Zane at the LGBTQ2 Centre and filled him in on Conner's dad. Zane would make arrangements for the pickup later.

They got to the hospital and gave Mark a few minutes with his dad before they went in. When they went in, Frank was smiling.

"I hear he has been enjoying staying with you guys," said Frank. "I appreciate what you guys are doing for me. I will never be able to repay you."

"Frank, there is nothing owed. We are enjoying him just as much," said Jared. "Did he explain who this young man is, Frank?"

"Yes, he did. Come here please, Conner," said Frank.

He looked terrified but did so. Frank shook his hand and told him he has nothing to fear. His father's actions would not be held against him. Mark had also spoken highly of Conner. They talked for a while before the nurses came in to get his vitals.

"Not you three again," she said with a smile. When she left, they had to explain to Frank what they had done the day before.

"You two are a bad influence on my son," said Frank. "And don't you two even try that 'who-me' look."

"I wasn't here," said Liam. "It was Mark, Conner, and Jared. I'm innocent this time."

The three instigators were standing behind Liam and rolling their eyes. Frank laughed at their antics. Jared asked if it would be alright if they took Mark up to his cabin for a couple of nights to relax and have some fun. After some discussion, Frank thought it would be a great idea as he would be in the hospital for at least a few days recovering. They visited for a while longer when Frank asked if he could speak with Liam and Jared alone for a few minutes. Liam gave the boys money to go buy some food in the cafeteria and they would meet them there shortly.

"Let me be direct," asked Frank. "I take it Conner is gay, and they seem to be building a friendship or more between them."

"We have noticed a bond between them as well," replied Jared. "I am sensing it is a bond of two young men who were caught in bad situations. There may be some exploration going on but I think they are really just becoming friends, at least at this time."

"We have had a discussion with them about not getting involved sexually with each other or other people until they get these events behind them," explained Liam.

"You guys talked to them about sex? Man, oh man. That is something I could never do with Mark. How did it go?" asked Frank.

"Quite well. They understood what we were saying and I believe it will keep them thinking for a while. Then if their friendship becomes more, we will have to have another discussion with them," said Liam.

"Something I really need to know guys. How the hell did you get my son to cut his hair the first day he stayed with you? I have had him for years and he wouldn't do it," said Frank.

"It was actually easy," replied Jared.

"We just told him he was cute, looking like that, but with a new hairstyle he would not only feel better but would look even better than cute," said Jared. "They both got their hair cut at the same time and even helped each other pick the style to a degree."

"Interesting approach. Thank you, guys," said Frank. They chatted for a few minutes more and then left to find the boys downstairs. They were sitting at a table in the corner and had three young candy stripers with them. Jared and Liam sat at another table when Conner came over and asked them to join them. They did and enjoyed listening to the young people chat. Obviously, they knew these girls from school.

Jared's phone rang and it was Zane calling. He stepped away from the table to speak with him. The pastor of Conner's family church had been in contact with the funeral home and was trying to take over the funeral for the three members of his congregation. Zane went through the arrangements he had made with the Reverend of the United Church and the service was planned to take place in five days. Jared appreciated his help and would deal with the funeral home and the pastor.

He went back to the table and explained the problem to Liam, Mark, and Conner. After the boys finished their food, they all left and went to the funeral home. The funeral director met with them and informed them of the pastor making the arrangements.

"You were given instructions by Zane on behalf of me and this young man, the only surviving member of the family. What gave the pastor the authority to supersede those instructions?" asked Jared.

"He told me they were members of his congregation and the victims had left him instructions," the director replied.

Jared sat for a moment. "I'm the one paying your bill and you had clear directions given to you. Are you telling me you cannot handle our instructions?"

The four men looked at the director and waited for his answer. "Obviously there has been a misunderstanding," the director replied. "I was led to believe the pastor was acting on behalf of the family."

Conner spoke up, "If he wants my father, he can have him. But Mom and my brother are my responsibility."

"I will have to talk to him about this," the director said.

Jared had had enough and he pulled out his cellphone. "Will you give us a few minutes to discuss this please, Sir?"

"Of course. I will call the pastor while you are talking," he replied as he left.

Jared called John and explained the situation. John told him he would get the lawyers and Melanie on it to get it sorted out.

The funeral director knocked at the door and came in. "The pastor is adamant about his directions. He also told me Conner has no say in the arrangements."

The phone rang on the director's desk which he answered. He sat and listened, with his eyes opening wide. "Yes, I have heard of your law firm, Mr. McCoy." There was a pause for a moment. "I don't think that will be necessary," he said. The director listened for a few more minutes. "I understand, but I believe I have to follow the pastor's request," he said. "No, he has not offered to pay for the services," he replied. He listened for another moment and then said, "Under those circumstances, I will have to await further instructions." The director was looking at Jared with what could be considered a dirty look. "I have him and the son here with me right now," he said. There was obviously more being said to him when he replied, "I understand your position. I will talk with Jared and Conner and I believe this can proceed on their directions." He hung up the phone.

"You don't fool around do you, Sir? It is not every day someone of Mr. McCoy's notoriety calls here representing a client," the director said. "I believe this can proceed under your directions, Conner."

"That's good," said Jared. "McCoy and Associates is on retainer to my company as well as my personal lawyer. If you have further problems with the pastor, call him directly and keep him informed. You will find he is a better friend than an adversary."

"I believe that if his reputation is even half of what the press says," stated the director.

They made the arrangements and the director was to work with the minister at the United Church for the service. The family members were to be cremated before the service and Conner chose two beautiful matching urns for his mother and brother. It took some coaching, but Conner chose a plain urn for his father after being assured using an old grocery bag, zip lock bag, or cardboard box wasn't really the best choices for his dad, although it did feel right.

Outside, Jared called his lawyer and asked him to look for any wills and assets Conner's parents may have had. Jared put Conner on the phone for a moment.

"Yes, I am the surviving son and I authorize you to act on my behalf," Conner said to Jesse. "Thank you for your help, Mr. McCoy. I would be lost without Jared and you helping me." Jared handed the phone back to Jared. A few words were exchanged and Jared hung up.

Jared called John and brought him up to speed on the developments. He asked John if he had found anything out on the church yet and listened for a couple of minutes. Jared told him to seek Jesse's help if he needed it, then hung up the phone.

Liam looked at him with interest. "Let's wait a few days and see what develops. With John, Melanie, and Jesse on it now there will be no more problems," said Jared.

"Is it time to head to the cabin, Jared?" asked Liam

"Absolutely," Jared replied.

They headed to the apartment and grabbed a few things, heading out a short time afterward. On the way, Jared had to slap the back of Liam's head when he got Mark and Conner going by saying, "Are we there yet?"

They stopped at the grocery store not far from the cabin and filled up with food supplies. They arrived at the cabin a short time later. During the trip, both Conner and Mark had confessed to never having been in the wilderness before or even at a cabin. Liam assured them they would like it.

The boys were amazed when they pulled up to the cabin and got out to look around as soon as the SUV was parked.

"Do not go into the forest or follow any trails from the lawn area without one of us with you," said Liam. "You guys have never been in the wilderness before and you could get lost easily up here." They agreed and disappeared around the corner.

Jared and Liam hauled the groceries in and put them away. Liam went onto the deck to look for the boys and saw them standing at the end of the dock looking into the water. Jared came out onto the deck and took him into his arms.

"I love being up here with you, Liam," said Jared as he leaned into for a kiss.

"What are we going to do about the dress code with those two around?" asked Liam.

"How about loincloths and then see what how it goes," replied Jared. They went into the cabin and put their loincloths on, returning to the deck as the boys walked up to join them.

"What are you guys wearing?" asked Conner. Liam explained what they were with Jared's help.

"We normally go naked up here or wear these but we don't want to make you guys uncomfortable."

"Do you have loincloths we can wear?" asked Mark.

"We make them ourselves so it won't be problem boys," replied Jared. They two of them wanted to make them so Jared went in and got his supply of leather and sewing kit. Once they had measured the boys, they started working on the cloths. When it came time to try them on, the boys just stood there, not knowing what to do.

"Strip off guys, and put your clothes on the table," said Liam. The boys took everything off until they got to their underwear and then paused. It was obvious they were both hard.

"It's ok guys. No worries about being hard. We had that talk last night, right?" said Jared.

The boys slowly pulled their underwear off and stood there in all their naked glory, looking at each other's hard-on sticking out in plain view.

Conner was well endowed. Liam wondered how the kid didn't pass out from a lack of blood when he got hard. He was a good 7.5" and fairly thick. He had a nice nest of pubic hair at the base of his dick. The shaft was thicker than average, but it was the large purple head on his dick which was impressive. "I hope whoever bottoms for him is well relaxed," thought Jared to himself. He had a nice little butt. The hair on his legs extended up to the bottom of the cheeks of his ass where they ended. Very nice to look at.

Mark's dick was about 6.5" and very nice to look at. The head had a drop of pre-cum leaking from it and it dripped onto the floor. The head of his dick would be just perfect to lick and play with. The shaft was slightly thicker than average and at the base was a nest of blonde short trimmed pubic hair. His butt was quite nice to look at and totally hairless. A little conditioning and it would definitely be a 10 out of 10.

Jared and Liam moved forward and fitted the boys with their loincloths and then stood back to admire them. They both had big smiles on their faces as they moved around on the deck and modeled them.

"Can we use the hot tub sometime, Jared?" asked Conner.

Jared replied, "Of course. We can all sit in it this evening if you want. Have you guys ever gone fishing?"

Neither of them had. "We can do that later then," said Jared. "Liam, you want to take them out for a boat ride around the lake, you can take the ski boat. Just don't go up the river with that one. The draft and motor leg stick in too deep in the water for shallow areas."

The boys liked the idea. "What are you going to do, Jared?" asked Liam.

"I am going to go and meditate at that spot along the shore where we slept under the stars. I need to commune with the spirits to seek clarity and direction," replied Jared.

The boys looked puzzled at Jared's statement but were soon bouncing along behind Liam as he started walking towards the boathouse. Jared thought to himself, "It's like having a couple of children up here the way they are bouncing around and wanting to try everything. I guess it really is an indication of how starved they are for positive attention and just being allowed to be themselves."

Liam took the boys to the boathouse, opened the door and motioned them into the boat. He showed them where the fire extinguisher was located and got them each a life preserver to wear. He let loose the ropes tying the boat and backed it out. He turned the boat and gunned the motor. The 150 Merc dug in and they were quickly on top of the water and moving quickly. Mark and Conner were standing up next to Liam and letting the wind blow their hair backward. They were enjoying it immensely.

Liam slowed the boat down and explained how to operate it. He let both of the boys each take turns to operate the boat around the lake. When they got to the far end of the lake, they saw a couple of canoes being paddled. Liam had them slow down and explained they did this to prevent making waves for the canoes. If the waves hit them broadside, they could capsize them.

In each of the canoes was a man and women who appeared to in their mid-twenties. They waved at the boys as they went by slowly in the boat. Once clear, they gunned the motor again. Liam took over the controls again and turned off the motor.

He turned to them and asked, "So what do you think, guys."

"Awesome," replied Mark.

"Love it," said Conner.

"It's quiet out here, let's drift and just talk," suggested Liam. He told them about himself and the way his parents had been killed in an accident. Liam also explained how he had been Jared's partner at work and how they become boyfriends. Liam also explained Jared had a deep spiritual relationship with the Creator and some of his other First Nation beliefs. The boys had some questions about the beliefs and Liam answered them best he could.

Conner talked about his home life and explained how he had been prevented from having friends or participating in school activities except for the Christian Youth Group who were all from his church. He talked about how his father had set him up with a few girls from the church and he had no interest at all. This was not missed by his father who beat him until he admitted he liked men and not women. His dad then beat him for being an abomination. His dad wanted to send him to a church reconditioning camp so he could learn to be straight but Conner had refused. His mother and brother were beaten as well by their father. His mom would sneak in to see Conner after his beatings to check him over and patch him up. She even took him and his brother to the hospital a couple of times after they had 'fallen down the stairs.'

Mark explained how his dad had raised him after his mother had died of cancer. He had remarried and they had a girl but they are divorced now. Judy, technically his stepmom, is nice but she really never knew how to deal with him. She was good about the admission he was gay though. They are not close but are nice to each other. His dad put in long hours at work to try and pay for everything they needed, including college. Mark really was home alone a lot without anyone. Even though he blamed his dad at times, he understood why he was working so much. When he came out, his dad was livid and couldn't talk to him. Frank had never hit or abused Mark in any way, and he did know his dad loved him. They just couldn't communicate until a totally unexpected event happened. One day, he came and sat him down to talk. His dad's view had changed and he did something he hadn't done in a long time with Mark. He gave Mark a loving hug and held him tight as they both shed tears.

They had been talking for an hour when Liam started the boat and headed to shore. They stopped at the dock and tied off, Liam ran to the boathouse and got an inflated inner tube and rope. He tied it off and asked one of them to get in and he would drag them around the lake for fun.

"Can't we go at the same time?" asked Mark.

"By law, we need a spotter in the boat in addition to the operator. The spotter watches the person being pulled around and if they fall off or something else happens, they tell the driver." The boys understood and decided Conner could go first.

They loved it as Liam was pulling them around the lake, and snapping the line occasionally by changing directions suddenly. If done right, the driver could snap the inner tube right from under the person and cause them to bounce on the water like a skipping stone. One time Liam snapped the line, Mark skipped across the lake four times before stopping in the water. A couple of hours later, they went back to the dock where they found Jared waiting for them.

"I got supper ready if you guys are hungry," he said. "I just have to throw the meat on the BBQ when you're done playing."

Conner and Mark yelled, "FOOD!" and immediately ran up to the cabin. Jared and Liam laughed.

"The locusts are back again," said Liam.

They all made short work of the food. Soon there were just scraps and debris left on the table. The young ones even drank some wine with their meal and were feeling good. They didn't get enough to be drunk but when combined with a full stomach, they felt really good. There wasn't even room for the cheesecake Jared had bought in town, though Liam had to get a slice.

They talked about anything which came to the four men's minds while basking in the glow of a good meal.

"I am really enjoying this," said Conner. "We were not allowed to talk, let alone tell jokes or funny stories at the dinner table. Dad said it was against the teachings of the Bible. In fact, I didn't want to stay any longer than the meal with him there."

"Dad is usually working so I eat alone a lot," said Mark. "I know he wants to spend more time with me, but he is so busy."

Neither Liam nor Jared said anything. They just listened to the boys with focused attention. There was a silence for a moment when Liam started telling stories of when he was young. They were all laughing.

"I think while you guys clean up supper, I will get some bannock dough made for cooking on a campfire tonight," said Jared.

"Do we have marshmallows and smore-making materials," asked the chocoholic Liam.

"Of course. We have lots," he replied.

"We can get into the hot tub first before the campfire," suggested Liam. That met with everyone's approval.

The kitchen cleaned and the bannock dough finished, they piled the snacks all together on the end of the counter for easy retrieval when they start the fire.

They went out to the hot tub and pulled the cover off. Liam and Jared pulled their loincloths off and stepped into the water and finding a corner seat together. Mark and Conner were still standing on the deck.

"Well?" said Liam.

The boys pulled their skimpy loincloths off and stepped into the water. They sat near each other, but not touching.

"So how are you two getting along," asked Jared.

"Very well," replied Mark. "I really like Conner. Even though we just met, we seem to be real friends."

"Same for me," added Conner. "I never really had friends before, well other than at church and those were more acquaintances than anything. I feel comfortable being with Mark."

"That's good to hear guys," said Liam.

"Do you guys want to sit together or are you fine where you are?" asked Jared.

The two young men looked at each other and Mark moved next to Conner. Conner blushed but leaned his head on Mark's shoulder.

"Do you think you guys are developing more than a friendship," asked Liam.

"We talked about it and neither one of us knows. We are very comfortable with each other and really like each other. But we remember your words of caution about a quick relationship and we will see. I never had a brother before but if that is all we end up as, then I am fine with it," said Mark.

"I feel the same way about Mark. I have never been able to show affection before by hugging or putting my head on someone's shoulder. I realize what I have missed when I do this and Mark doesn't mind the contact either," said Conner.

"I have only been in one relationship before, and it wasn't the best one. I have watched you two and the way you guys interact and I have learned a lot. I know I appreciate being able to talk with you guys and to ask questions I could never ask my father," said Mark.

"Me too," chirped in Conner. "Can I think of you as being my big brothers?"

"Both of you can," said Liam. "Group hug!" Jared and Liam got up quickly and stood in the middle of the tub. They were both far from soft, but not hard. The younger men looked at them and stood. They were both fully hard. All four of them hugged for a moment and sat down again. This time Mark and Conner sat real close.

They soaked in the tub and watched the sunset. Jared was explaining the color black and the power of the west direction to all of them. He went on and explained the rest of the medicine wheel; the color white and the power of the north, the east and its powers were symbolized by yellow and finally the color of red and the power of the south.

"How do you know so much of this, Jared," asked Conner.

Liam spoke up, "Jared is considered to be a Shaman. He is a Sacred Medicine Man of the People. A similar thing for you to compare the title with would be a high priest. I am his apprentice, so to speak, and am learning what I need to know from him."

"Liam is more than an apprentice and is doing well at it. I don't mind explaining things to you as part of Liam's education is to understand all of these things as well. So, when I explain to you, he is learning as well," said Jared.

They had been in the tub for twenty minutes when the tub shut off automatically. "I think it is time for the campfire now, and some snacks," said Liam.

"We are going down naked, how about you guys," asked Jared.

"If I can hug you with a hard-on and not feel uncomfortable, I can walk around naked," laughed Mark.

They got the materials for making snacks and headed down to the campfire ring. When they got there, a large black bear was sniffing around. Liam, Mark, and Conner stepped backward with fear. Jared stepped forward to him, coming within six feet. He was a huge black bear, probably weighing around 500 to 600 pounds.

"Brother, we are going to light a fire here and enjoy fellowship. If you wish to join us, you may," said Jared.

The bear stood on his two back legs and his massive paws hanging down. He was not in a threatening position to any person who knew bears.

"Masqua, my spirit guide, you honor me by being present. I can only hope I may honor you through my actions in life," said Jared. I would like you to meet my soulmate and partner who has the spirit guide of Mikisow." Jared signaled Liam to stand beside him. Liam moved up slowly.

The bear sniffed the air and nodded his head up and down. He spread his paws and upper legs wide, then pulled them into himself gesturing a big hug.

"Yes Masqua, this is the man you hugged in the vision," said Jared.

Liam looked at the bear and said, "I thank you for that hug in the vision. It gave me much security and I felt the warmth of love from it. It helped me to progress through my troubles."

The bear nodded up and down again and then placed a paw over its heart. It held it there for a moment and then dropped to the ground on all four paws. He started to walk towards the trees when he stopped and let loose a bellow which reverberated loudly across the lake. For everyone but Jared, it was the first time they had heard a bear roar, and it was loud and unexpected. Jared remained still but the rest jumped backward and goosebumps rose on their skin.

"Thank you, Masqua. May the blessings of the Creator be with you on your journey in life. You are always welcome here," said Jared. The bear disappeared into the trees and soon could not be heard anymore.

Mark and Conner were standing there with their mouths open, clinging tightly to each other and holding hands. "What the hell was that?" asked Mark.

"You guys are never to approach a bear. That one was at least 500 pounds and could tear you apart if that was why he was here. Do you understand guys?" asked Jared.

"Yes," they both said.

"That was my spirit guide, Masqua or the Black Bear. Spirit guides are actual spirits in the other world, but when they come to earth, they take a physical form. Their physical form is real to the touch, but they cannot be harmed. He thanked us for the offer of sharing our fire and food but said Mother Earth provided as much food as he needed. He came to say he approved of Liam as my soul mate and to check on us here at this place. He approved of us taking in Conner and Mark as well. The bellow he made at the end was to warn the spirits we are under his protection, especially you two young ones. We were always safe here, but now we are even more so," explained Jared.

"Un-fucking-believable," said Conner. "I thought I was going to shit myself."

"Well Mark, it is obvious you are teaching Conner the swear words he had never heard before in his sheltered life," said Liam. "I have to admit I felt the exact same way. I was going to shit myself, too."

"Me three," said Mark.

"Remember, I knew that was my spirit guide and I am a Shaman, but I still had fear within me even knowing. You guys may see all kinds of wild animals here. Never approach them because not everything around here is spiritual. Some of the animals have teeth," said Jared. "Now let's light the fire and get to roasting some bannock."

The fire grew quickly with all the dry wood. Jared showed them how to wrap the bannock dough around the marshmallow sticks and cook it. When it was done, he had honey, sugar, cinnamon, raspberry jam, and molasses to roll them in. They loved it.

Liam showed them how to roast marshmallows and also how to make smores with graham wafers, hot marshmallow and a chunk of a chocolate bar. The boys really enjoyed themselves.

"Guys, it is late and bedtime. I can see you guys are getting a little sleepy. How would you like to sleep under the stars tonight, right here beside the campfire?" asked Liam.

The boys were worried about animals but Jared assured them it was no problem. When they went to the cabin to take all the food back and get some blankets, Jared grabbed one of his rifles. The boys were interested to look at it. They didn't even seem to notice anymore they were still naked. The two of them were getting more comfortable being nude around other people.

They laid out their blankets on the ground and covered themselves as a group. Liam was spooned behind Jared, and Mark behind Conner. They were all soon asleep.

It had been light for a couple of hours already but the sun wasn't over the tree line until 5:30 am. It was going to be another beautifully warm day. Jared got up, and he had a full-on piss hard-on as he headed to the bushes. After relieving himself, he saw the other three were still dead to the world. He tapped Liam on the shoulder gently which woke him up. He looked over his shoulder at the two boys still spooned together. Liam headed over to the bush to relieve himself. Afterwards, they ran up to the deck and pulled the cover off the hot tub and climbed in.

Jared sat down on a seat and Liam climbed onto him, kneeling and straddling him. Liam grabbed his head and kissed Jared hard and furiously. Liam was working his way around Jared's ears and neck, kissing and licking his neck. Liam could feel Jared's hard dick rubbing his own cock as he moved.

Jared guided Liam up and over to the side of the tub, sitting on the edge out of the water. Liam's cock was as hard as a diamond cutter with the purple head on top of the shaft catching Jared's attention. He leaned in and blew across Liam's left nipple while playing with his ball sack. Liam groaned and grabbed both sides of Jared's head. He blew across the nipple again and Liam groaned even louder.

"Jared, that feels so incredible when you do that. My nipples are so sensitive," said Liam.

Jared reached up and with both hands and started to brush over Liam's nipples while he took that solid piece of meat into his mouth.

"Oh God, Jared," cried Liam.

Jared was twisting Liam's nipples lightly while bobbing up and down on his hard dick. Jared paused long enough to lean up and kiss Liam on his lips.

"Liam, let's get up on the picnic table. I want to be inside you," said Jared.

Jared climbed onto the picnic table then slid down and started to lick and kiss around his belly button and down Liam's blonde treasure trail. Then, he moved down and gently used one hand to grab Liam's dripping hard cock, put it into his mouth and started sucking it. Liam cried out in sheer ecstasy at the feelings he was experiencing. Jared spread and lifted Liam's legs to give him access to the tight little rosebud. Jared started to kiss and nibble his way down from the balls to Liam's asshole. He started to lick it gently, playing with it, thrusting his tongue in.

Jared leaned back and turned Liam over onto his front. He reached over and grabbed the lube squirting some onto Liam's asshole and on his fingers as well. Liam shifted position onto his hands and knees with his ass high for Jared. Jared inserted one finger gently and kept going until it was buried. Then he started to twist his finger as he moved it in and out of Liam. Liam was panting and then said, "Jared, I need you in me."

Jared saw that Liam was quite relaxed and lubed his own hard cock. He came up behind Liam and placed his cock at the sweet asshole. He pushed in past the first ring with his cock and waited for a minute. Liam groaned in response and pushed backward, allowing Jared to fully enter him as deeply as possible. Liam let out another groan.

"Liam, are you ok my love?" asked Jared.

"I am better now than I have ever been. I needed you in me to feel complete," he replied.

Jared started to thrust in and out of Liam slowly, building up the speed and strength of his thrusts. Liam was moaning non-stop and thrusting his ass back to meet Jared's inward movement. Jared stopped and pulled out. He rolled Liam on his back and moved back into position. He thrust into Liam all at once. Jared leaned down and kissed Liam hard on his lips. After breaking the kiss, he started to really pound in and out. Liam rolled his head back, his mouth open and eyes closed, moaning wildly. Liam grabbed his own dick and started to pump it wildly. "Jared, I'm cumming," he said.

"So am I, Liam," as Jared thrust in as deep as he could. Liam could feel Jared's life essence being pumped inside of him and that triggered his climax. Liam came and shot rope after rope of cum onto his chest and face. Jared laid down on Liam, smearing the cum between their bodies, and kissed him. "I love you, Liam," he said gently.

Liam and Jared heard the sound at the same time. The looked over and standing at the edge of the deck, looking through the rails was Conner and Mark. They both had hard-ons and were masturbating each other furiously. They must have been there for a while because they were both cumming as soon as Jared and Liam saw them. They both shot massive loads onto the deck rails. They looked horrified when the realized they had been spotted. It looked like they were going to run away.

"Come on up, boys. We will get the coffee ready and we can all have a cup," said Liam.

The boys slowly came onto the deck, their cocks slowly softening but still dripping sperm out of them. They were both acting sheepish and staring at the ground. Jared and Liam walked towards them and gave them both hugs.

"You're not mad at us?" asked Mark.

"Not at all. We were out in the open showing our love for each other without thinking you guys might get up. If the rest of our brothers come up when you are here, you will find more than one couple going at it somewhere. We all express our love openly," explained Jared.

"What did you guys think about it," asked Jared.

"It was fucking hot!" said Conner.

"Well, you guys beating each other's meat was pretty hot for us too. You guys are really cute, and even cuter together," said Liam.

"I'm sure you guys have questions but I need coffee and I am sure you guys are hungry," said Jared.

"Those were pretty impressive loads you guys shot, too," said Liam. "We could see the spray from up here."

"Liam is right, you two are pretty hot young men," said Jared.

"You two really think so?" asked Conner.

Liam pulled him into a hug and said, "Yes, you are. Conner, you are very well hung and Mark isn't bad either. Mark has the better bubble butt though."

Conner broke free of Liam, turned around and bent over, "What's wrong with this butt."

Liam reached over and gave it a small pinch. "Yup, definitely grade-A butt there."

"I'm hungry," said Mark. "Conner put the cute little butt away and let's get breakfast going."

"I agree," said Jared. "I like your progressive thinking, Mark."

They all headed in and pitched in to make pancakes, scrambled eggs, muffins and sliced ham. They all ate everything which had been prepared. While the boys were cleaning up, Jared hooked up his laptop to the phone to check his email.

There were a couple of messages from John. The first one advised him Jesse McCoy was dealing with the church pastor and basically pounding him into the ground. The pastor had the mother's will as well as the will from Conner's dad. He also produced a handwritten amendment dated and timed an hour before the man had been killed. The amendment wasn't legal but it tried to cancel the actual will and leave everything to the church, appointing the pastor as executor. Mr. McCoy had copies and turned them over to the police for a fraud investigation. They are cooperating fully and pushing hard to get answers. Jesse also sent the information to a contact in the IRS as an irregularity. The contact was very interested and mentioned they had been watching the pastor and the church for a while. He had also slapped court orders on the pastor for no contact with Conner and a prohibition from being present on any of his family's property or wherever Conner was, in public or residing. Just to keep the pastor on the run, he had filed the wills and the amendment with the courts asking for an investigation and freezing all assets until probated. He had found Conner's home already listed with a realtor and naming the pastor himself as the owner. He had filed a court order with the realty company and they had filed a breach of contract suit against the pastor. John had brought in security people to monitor the pastor and videotape his activities.

The funeral was under control and set at the United Church. The funeral director was more than cooperative when Jesse provided him with copies of the fake will and the real ones. The father's will hadn't been changed legally after he kicked out Conner and everything went to him and he had full control of the family's disposition. There was life insurance and a couple of other accounts with money they will have to investigate where it came from. It wasn't consistent with Conner's dad's income.

John had made arrangements for a full service for Conner's mom and brother, with a separate simple burial of his father's ashes. He had bought two plots in the cemetery and after cremation; his mother and brother would be in one plot and his father in the other.

Jared laughed and showed Liam the screen with the email. He laughed as well.

"I think the boys should see this, Jared," said Liam.

Jared called the boys over to read the email. They looked at each other and then at Jared. "I hope we never piss you off, Jared," said Mark.

Jared hugged him and told him no worries. He only released people for Jesse to deal with when they intentionally tried to hurt other people.

"What does that mean about the other accounts," asked Conner.

"It could mean a lot of things, but they will look at it to see if the money was obtained illegally or through legal means. There is more in the accounts than a man who earned what your dad did for a job should have. He may have won a lottery or got an inheritance which is both explainable. But it could be from something not legal as well," explained Jared.

The boys went back to the kitchen to finish up. Jared opened the second email from John and it had details about the church he had asked for.

There was an email from Tyler. They had gone through Conner's house looking for evidence and a reason for why his dad snapped. They found a false floor in the closet of the master bedroom and it went down into a handmade storage area. He had even used concrete wire and shotcrete inside the walls and floor to keep moisture low. They found all kinds of weapons and ammunition stored there in boxes. There were approximately 25 AR-15 rifles and 20 handguns, 10mm semi-automatics. One of the crates had the churches address on it as the destination.

The last email was from Troy. He and Tyler wanted to come up if they weren't coming back today. He sent an email in reply inviting them and gave them shit for not coming up last night. We would be here two more nights. He explained about Conner and Mark being here as well.

Troy replied a couple of minutes later and thanked him and said they would be leaving within an hour if he could get Tyler's big, but well-used ass out of his bed.

Jared sent another message back and told them he had forgotten to mention they wanted to do a sweat either tonight or tomorrow.

Troy said he would get a hold of Josh and Darren and see what they were up too and maybe they would come up as well.

A few minutes later, a message came from Josh saying they would be up a bit later after lunch. Darren is walking funny and needs time to recover.

Jared sent a message back to Josh and thanked him for his quick message. "I know the hose puller can't write so it was good you could do it on his behalf."

A message came back from Josh telling him when Darren read the message, he smacked his ass because he couldn't do it to Jared. What was this about another brother and maybe two?

Jared sent a message back saying he would explain when everyone was up here.

Jared signed off.

"There was a lot of typing and message dinging going on there Jared," said Liam looking over his shoulder.

"Everyone is coming up for a couple of nights. We better hit the grocery store in town to feed the coming army," said Jared.

Mark and Conner had heard the comment and asked what Jared meant.

"Our other brothers, our family, is all coming up today and staying for the next couple of nights. You two have met most of them and you will meet the rest. You will like them," said Liam.

"I was just getting used to going naked and now I have to get dressed again," said Conner.

Jared laughed.

"Not a chance, these guys will tear off their clothes and join us as soon as they get here," replied Liam.

"Are two of them those hot cops I met at the hospital?" asked Conner.

"Yes, they will be running around here naked as well as their boyfriends," said Liam

Mark thought and looked at Conner, "We just learned not to get a hard-on with these two and now there is more coming. Man, I don't know if I can do it."

Jared laughed, "Remember how they were joking and acting at the hospital. We are all even worse when together. When they see you two little cuties, they will be the ones having trouble not getting a stiffie."

"Let's get showered and dressed and head into town," said Liam. "We need groceries and food to keep them happy or they would BBQ one of you two little guys as prime tender meat."
