Todd’s love for Nick grew as they were completing their senior year of high school and were making plans for college. Todd practically lived with his grandparents and Nick was often his bedmate. Todd’s grandmother had welcomed Nick into the family. His grandfather had additionally accepted the fact that Todd and Nick were lovers.
The two young lovers were making plans to become optometrists and were making plans to enroll at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah. Northeastern no only had an excellent optometry college, but was close by.
“E-ni-si (Grandfather) would you drive Nick and me into Tahlequah so we can pre-enroll at NSU,” Todd asked his grandfather? “There is no school Friday because of parent/ teacher conferences.”
“Drive your self there,” Todd’s grandfather, Jim Bushyhead, teased.
“You’d let me drive your truck, E-ni-si,” Todd questioned?
“No I won’t let you drive my truck,” Jim teased his grandson.
“Then who’s vehicle can I dive,” Todd challenged?
“Yours,” Jim smiled.
“E-ni-si, stop teasing,” Todd pleaded.
“Then who’s keys are these,” Jim queried, while hold keys up for Todd to see?
“E-ni-si, are you nu-da (crazy) I don’t have a truck,” Todd asked with puzzlement?
“You do now,” Jim smiled, “We bought a new one today and want you to have the old one.”
“No shit,” Todd exclaimed!
“No shit,” Jim laughed. “My arm still hurts from where your grandmother twisted it to make me agree.”
“Thank you E-ni-si and Ah-lee-see (grandfather and grandmother), I love you,” Todd exclaimed!
“Don’t tell Nick, I want to surprise him,” Todd declared.
“I can’t believe your grandfather let you drive his truck,” Nick proclaimed when as he entered the truck.
“He didn’t,” Todd said with a mischievous smile.
“You took his truck without permission,” Nick questioned?
“It’s my truck,” Todd beamed. “He gave it to me.”
“Oh, wow you’re one lucky son of a bitch,” Nick declared.
Nick and Todd were happy do discover that they could enroll in the same classes. They additionally learned that since they already had several college credits that they could obtain a Bachelor of Science in two years. However, this would require attending the summer sessions.
“Maybe we should we look for an apartment while we’re here,” Todd suggested.
“Good idea,” Nick agreed. “But, let’s eat first. I’m hungry.”
They discovered some several eating establishments next to the campus. “They laughed at unusual names; The Iguana Café, Sam an Ella’s, and E. Coli. However, they decided on The Iguana Café. Although it was a chilly early spring day, they decided to have lunch on the balcony since it was more private.
After looking at several apartments they found one just across the street from the College of Optometry. “You’ll want a two bedroom,” the apartment manager inquired?
“We’ll get by with a one bedroom,” Todd quickly answered as he smiled to himself. “However, we won’t be moving in until the summer term.”
“I’ll have a one bedroom that will be available in June if you care to see it,” the manager offered.
Todd and Nick agreed that the apartment was perfect and the manager offered to hold it for a $50 deposit providing at least one of them was 18 or older.
“I can’t wait until I get to sleep with you every night,” Nick said as they drove back home.
“If we didn’t have classes I’d never let you out of bed,” Todd smiled.
“I have no clue how I’m going to pay my rent,” Todd confessed to his grandmother as he was telling her about the apartment. “I guess I’ll have to work fulltime just to pay rent.”
“You said you would have to have really good grades to get into optometry? Your parents will pay,” Alice retorted.
“Ah-lee-see, they hardly know I’m alive,” Todd countered. “Although we can complete our Bachelors degree in two years, Optometry College is four years.”
“They will pay,” Alice replied with authority. “Your mother makes good money with her nursing job, and your father drinks up that much every month.”
“I wonder how Nick will manage his part without working fulltime,” Todd asked without really expecting an answer.
“Don’t worry, there will be a way,” Alice promised.
Nick wasn’t as confident that there would be a way for him to pay his rent when Todd relayed what his grandmother had said.
“Nick, baby, you don’t know my grandmother like I know her. When she says there will be a way, there will be a way,” Todd assured Nick.
“I just wish I were as sure about it as you,” Nick replied. “But for now I’m not going to worry about it. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that my Aunt Marsha is taking us to Tulsa for dinner Saturday to celebrate our graduation.”
As promised Marsha took Nick and Todd to Tulsa for graduation dinner. Todd expected dinner at a Red Lobster or an Applebee’s, but to his surprise Marsha took them to The Polo Grill. “Order anything on the menu, it’s my treat,” Marsha directed.
Nick ordered the seafood Pavarotti, that included a variety of seafood, and Todd ordered the grilled salmon. For dessert they enjoyed a mango sorbet with a raspberry sauce. “Not my grandma’s Cherokee cuisine, but pretty damn good,” Todd declared as he finished off the sorbet.
“Speaking of your grandma, she informed me that you guys found an apartment,” Marsha stated.
“Yes we sure did, and right across the street from the College of Optometry,” Todd proclaimed.
“I may have to work fulltime just to pay rent,” Nick quietly stated.
“Oh no you’re not,” Marsha announced, “I’ll pay your half of the rent.”
“I can’t let you do that,” Nick retorted.
“I can and I will,” Marsha countered. “I’m not rich, but we certified attorneys make a decent living.”
Todd smiled to himself with this offer knowing his grandmother had something to do with this. He now had no doubt that his parents would pay his rent also.
Neither Todd nor Nick was sad to see the date of their graduation arrive. They were known as the two best friends who didn’t fit in. Although they were sure none of their classmates suspected that they were gay, nonetheless lovers.
As Todd’s grandmother had promised, his parents came through with his rent. His mother even gave him $1,000 check for his graduation. By means of wise garage sale shopping the new apartment was furnished quite tastefully. There was almost $500 left over.
Todd and Nick moved into the apartment two weeks before the start of the summer term with the excuse that they wanted to get settled the apartment. However, they knew the real reason was that they wanted to start living as a couple.
“Want to test it,” Nick teased as they finished putting the sheets and comforter on the bed. He had his answer as he saw Todd stripping.
“I thought you wanted to fuck,” Todd teased at the still dressed Nick.
“Just enjoying the scenery,” Nick laughed as he began to undress.
Both were hard by the time Nick climbed into bed with Todd and taking him into his arms. “I love you,” he said wile kissing Todd passionately and before Todd could respond.
“I love you too,” Todd gasped as Nick transferred his mouth from Todd’s mouth to his cock. “Tell me it will always be like this,” Todd pleaded, not really expecting Nick to pause long enough to answer.
“You’re becoming an expert cock sucker,” Todd kidded after he had filled Nick’s mouth with hot cum.
“Get ready because I’m going to show you that I’m an expert fucker now,” Nick laughed.
“Stop talking and start proving,” Todd taunted.
Nick then mounted Todd and began teasing his hole with his engorged cock, then declared, “Shit, we forgot to buy lube.”
“It’s taken care of,” Todd laughed as he pushed Nick off of him and crawled out of bed and disappeared out of the bedroom. Momentarily he returned holding a can of cooking spray.
Nick laughed so hard that he nearly lost his erection as he recalled the first time he had fucked Todd. “What, we can’t afford the name brand and have to use the store brand. You deserve better,” he teased.
“I have the best in you my dear,” Todd stated as he offered his ass to Nick.
Nick soon had his hungry cock lubed with the cooking spray and penetrated Todd’s welcoming ass. He started slowly wanting the lovemaking to last longer, but the passion overcame him and he was soon humping fast and feverishly. When he felt he could no longer hold back his ejaculation seemed to be never ending. When he felt the end, and his cock began to soften he lowered himself onto Todd and held him tightly.
“The bed seems to be quiet satisfactory, now shall we check the shower,” Todd inquired as he led Nick to toward the bathroom?
“What shall it be for dinner tonight, Sam and Ella’s or E. Coli, Nick joked as he dried Todd’s body?
“Neither,” Todd responded, “We’re on a tight budget babe.”
“Yes dear,” Nick teased back. “I’ll finish putting the rest of the stuff away while you cook dinner then. But, do we have food to cook?”
“We sure do, my Grandma and I came down yesterday and went grocery shopping. She insisted that she buy us some food.” Todd explained.
“Wow, something smells good,” Nice said as he came into the kitchen and gave Todd a hug from behind while kissing the back of his neck.
“Pork chops, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, a tossed salad and dinner rolls,” Todd informed Nick. “Now why don’t you set the table while I check on the rolls?”
“Damn that was good, what’s for dinner tomorrow,” Nick inquired as he rubbed his abdomen?
“Well, I don’t know. What are you cooking,” Todd questioned?
“I don’t think you want to eat my cooking, I can’t cook,” Nick confessed.
“I think it’s time you learned, but for now let’s clean up here and then go test the bed again,” Todd laughed.
The first few days of classes were a culture shock for the two small high school country boys. The classes were much larger and they weren’t the only smart students in the classes. Nick and Todd did manage to team up as lab partners in their chemistry class.
Soon they settled into a routine of going to class coming home for lunch, and maybe a quick lovemaking session before returning to class. Todd even managed to teach Nick to cook.
The summer and fall semesters passed very quickly and it would soon be time to decide what to do about the holiday break. “I dread going back to Colcord with nothing to do for a full month,” Nick confessed.
“Who said we have to go back,” Todd questioned? “I’ll bet we could get a job at one of the casinos and even earn some extra money.”
“Hey that’s a great idea, but we would need to work the same hours since we only have your truck for transportation,” Nick suggested.
“Our truck, we’re a couple now, “Todd countered.
The casino that hired Todd and Nick was even willing to let them work around their class schedule. They also agreed to give them the same hours since they only had one vehicle.
“We need to stop and buy groceries,” Todd informed Nick as he turned into the Reasors entrance following their first day at work.
Just as they were exiting the truck Nick’s cell phone rang. “It’s Marsha and she’s in town. She wants to take us to dinner.” Nick said to Todd.
“Great, it was my turn to cook anyway,” Todd joked. “Tell her we’ll meet her at the apartment in 20 minutes.”
“Now I’m impressed,” Marsha exclaimed upon entering the apartment. “I wouldn’t have expected two young college boys to have a clean and neat apartment. But, Nick I know you and I’ll bet your bed isn’t made. Where is your bedroom?”
“We only have one bedroom, and Todd always makes our be…,” Nick stopped as he realized what he was saying.
As Nick was trying to think of what to say and cover his embarrassment, Marsha quickly replied, “Nick I know you guys sleep together. You don’t need to be embarrassed. Hell, you may as well know that I’m a lesbian.”
“Oh my God,” Todd and Nick exclaimed in unison.
“Why are you guys so surprised,” Marsha asked? “You hadn’t noticed that I’m close to 40 and not married.” “Well, not real close to 40,” she quickly added. “You guys have a chance to be happy and to love each other while you’re young. That’s something I wish I had done while I was your age.”
“Do you have someone,” Nick asked?
“As a matter of fact I have been dating a very nice lady and I’d like for you to meet her soon,” Marsha smiled.
“Does anyone know,” Todd wanted to know?
“Are you kidding, not with our Bible thumping family,” Marsha replied more as a statement than a question. “Nobody around Colcord knows except maybe your grandma. I’ll swear I think that woman knows everything.”
“Yeah, she and my grandpa are the only ones that know about Nick and me.” Todd added.
“I just want you two to know that if you ever need anything you can always call me,” Marsha said. “Now where do you two want to go eat?”
“They have this neat place downtown that has great pizza, and you won’t believe the name,” Nick laughed.
“Oh I know about Sam and Ella’s, and I’ll bet you didn’t know that Carrie Underwood worked there when she was in college here,” Marsha chuckled.
“The same Carrie Underwood that won the American Idol,” Nick inquired?
“Yes, the now famous singer, and now let’s go get some pizza,” Marsha offered.
The spring semester seemed to go by even more quickly than the fall semester for Todd and Nick. Even though they worked at the casino, their grade didn’t suffer.
Todd and Nick were looking forward to having a Saturday off work and with no homework. The phone woke them from their morning slumber. “Ok, I’ll come in,” Nick said to the phone.
“What was that,” Todd asked?
“Julie called in at work and they asked if I’d fill in,” Nick explained.
“Fuck, I was looking forward to having the whole day with you,” Todd said with disappointment.
The day seemed to be never-ending for Todd as he tried to keep himself busy cleaning the apartment and catching up on some pleasure reading. He was absorbed with a novel he’d wanted to read when he heard a banging on the door. To his surprise it was his father, who had obviously been drinking.
“Well now this is your little homestead,” Steve attempted to joke. “I guess when you become an eye doctor you can take care of my eyes and support your old man for a change.
Todd smiled and said, “Would you like to have a cup of coffee or something?”
“You wouldn’t have what I’m drinking,” Steve grunted. He then continued, “Well where’s the rest of your apartment. I want to see if I’m getting my money’s worth.”
“The bedroom is there and the bathroom is there,” Todd replied as he pointed to each.
Steve opened the bedroom door and then turned while saying, “Just what I thought you and Nick are both fags and sleeping in the same bed. I’m sorry to say that you came from my balls.”
“Yeah Dad, Nick is my lover. We fuck and suck each other. How does it feel that you sperm fathered a fag,” Todd shouted in anger?
Todd didn’t see Steve’s fist that hit him in the face, but he felt the pain. Before Steve could deliver the second blow Todd delivered his. His blow was so hard that it knocked Steve to the floor. With catlike quickness Todd was on top of his father with a doubled up fist and saying, “You’ve hit me for the last time you sorry son of a bitch. Now get the fuck out of my home.”
Steve exited the apartment saying, “You forgot who pays your rent and you got your last rent check from me you fag.”
“I don’t think so; my grandma said that you would pay.” Todd countered. Todd couldn’t help but smile as he saw the fear in his father’s face. It was then that he realized how much Steve feared his grandmother.
By the time Nick arrived home from work Todd’s eye was almost swollen shut. “Oh my God, what happened to you,” Nick wailed.
“My Dad wasn’t pleased to find out that his son is a fag,” Todd smiled through his swollen face.
“I’ll kill that bastard,” Nick promised as he took Todd into his arms.
“No need, believe it or not he looks worse than I do,” Todd declared.
Nick laughed and then tenderly kissed Todd’s swollen eye.
