Hello and welcome back to Free Fiction Friday! We’re back to the prequels to Turning His Life Around! There are seven parts to this one, called Jealousy, and five more short stories after this one. Yay! 🙂

Please remember that the guys are technically underage in these. Any sex is fairly tame (described, yes, but tame) until much later in the series.

If you haven’t read Turning yet, you might consider checking it out. These stories make a lot more sense if you’ve read it first. These should also be read in order:

Nightmares and Waking Dreams (Part 1 * Part 2 * Part 3 )
Homework Break (Part 1 * Part 2 * Part 3 * Part 4 * Part 5 )

I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for reading and feel free to let me know what you think. I always love to hear from my readers. 😀

Ian ended up having to literally drag Kane away from Kenji and to class after lunch. They shared history with Hayden and the three of them sat together in the back. Kane grilled Hayden about Kenji for the better part of the hour and by the time they were done, Ian was ready to scream.

He was glad Kane had someone to talk about and be occupied with, but Ian missed most of the lecture. Chemistry was almost as bad, but finally, they were in gym class. At least there wasn’t a lecture there.

But when they went to change, Ian found he was nervous. Normally, he didn’t even think about dropping his uniform pants and stuff and putting on his gym clothes. But Hayden was there this time and he was torn between worrying about what his own body looked like and stealing glances at Hayden. The glances at Hayden won, but it caused a new problem.

And gym shorts didn’t contain erections very well.

He was so worried about that, he didn’t notice at first that Hayden seemed to have the same problem. It wasn’t until Kane leaned in and mentioned he might consider wearing a jock strap for class from then on that he realized it. And that Kane was talking to both of them.

Hayden and Ian stared at each other for a tense moment, then Hayden leaned in. “Well, I guess we don’t have to wonder if we like the other’s body.”

Ian nearly choked, but the laughter at least helped him calm down a little. He spent the rest of gym class trying desperately to ignore his boyfriend. It didn’t help and he ended up taking a very cold and very useless shower at the end. He wasn’t remotely comfortable until he was back in his regular clothes. The uniform pants weren’t great but they beat the shorts, at least.

“Can this day be over yet?” he grouched as they left the gym.

Hayden laughed. “I know how you feel, Ian, I really do.”

“Hey look, it’s the fags!” Someone called and Ian turned to stare at Hayden, his color draining completely.

Hayden’s jaw clenched and he looked around to find whoever said it. Kane’s fists were balled and that’s when Kenji came up. “What’s going on?” he asked in confusion.

“A small-minded individual felt the need to express his limited intelligence,” Ian said through gritted teeth.

Hayden laughed, diffusing the situation. “Well said, babe, well said.” He grabbed Ian’s hand and headed toward the lockers. “I’ve got to pick up a few books at my locker,” he said. He glanced around, found what he was looking for then leaned in and dropped a kiss on Ian’s temple. “I’ll meet you at yours in a few.”

“Okay,” Ian said, stunned. Babe? And… he kissed me in front of everyone! He shook his head to clear it and caught Kane’s amused look.

“Let’s get our books. We have better things to do than worry about assholes like that,” Kane said.

“Here, here,” Kenji added and followed behind them. Ian saw out of the corner of his eye the finger Kenji lifted as they passed the jerk and he smiled.


They piled into the Jeep and headed to Ian and Kane’s for homework. They didn’t get as much done as they should have, mostly because Ian spent half the time poking Kane to actually work and stop yakking. Though, he was just as guilty when it came to Hayden. They kept stopping to talk or kiss each other too. That was until both Kane and Kenji made gagging noises. Both Hayden and Ian rolled their eyes, but kept their touches to hand holding under the table.

As Kenji and Hayden were getting ready to go, Hayden pulled Ian aside. “I refuse to get gagged at for this,” he said with amusement. He glanced over at the other two, but they were involved in a heated discussion about dwarves. With a chuckle, he turned back to Ian. “So, I was thinking we might do a double date thing on Friday with them. Kenji’s like you two. He has a license, but no car. What do you think?”

Ian nodded. “I think that’s a great idea. I just hope…” he trailed off and cursed himself for blushing. Again.

“What’s that?” Hayden asked, wrapping his arms around his boyfriend.

Ian sighed at himself. “Just kind of hope to get some time alone with you.” As soon as it was out, he bit his lip.

Hayden chuckled, then bent and pulled the bitten lip between his own. Ian moaned into the kiss. Hayden’s tongue slid into Ian’s mouth and they lost themselves in the movement of mouths and lips and tongues. Hayden pulled back with obvious effort. “I want time alone with you, too,” he whispered. “We’ll find some,” he promised. He leaned into Ian, pushing him into the side of the porch, their bodies crushed together. “God…” he moaned again then dove in for another kiss.

Ian’s arms wound around Hayden’s waist and he trailed his hands down to that incredible ass. Ian squeezed it gently, pulling him in even tighter. “Want more of you…” Ian whispered and Hayden gave an agreeing groan. He rocked into Ian and he thrilled in the feel of Hayden’s want very obviously against his own.

“Ahem.” Kane’s voice floated through, but neither paid attention at first. The kisses deepened, the rocking became a bit more urgent. “Uh, guys?”

“Hayden! Ian!” Kenji nearly shouted and they jumped apart.

Ian’s hand slammed onto his chest. “Fuck!” he shouted and Kane winced. He threw an apologetic look at his friend. “Don’t scare me like that.”

Hayden looked back at his boyfriend. “I guess we do need to go.” He sighed then bent and gave Ian another long kiss earning them more gagging. “See you tomorrow.” He grinned.

“See you,” Ian said and they both watched as Hayden and Kenji got into the Jeep and drove away.

“Is it Friday yet?” Kane asked and Ian laughed.

“No. Not yet,” Ian said with a sigh. “Not by a long shot.”
