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. 😀

Surprisingly, however, Friday did show up pretty quickly when they spent the week hanging out together. They got into something of a routine, spending lunch and the classes they could sitting together. Hayden appeared most of the time between classes at Ian’s rooms and they walked together to the next class. The four of them did homework together after school and invariably Ian and Hayden got distracted with each other toward the end of the afternoon.

With the other two present, they didn’t get to be alone, but they took what they could get. There was plenty of kissing and touching so that by Friday, they were both close to being basket cases.

Ian had been so wrapped up in Hayden, that he hadn’t really noticed that Kane and Kenji hadn’t even so much as kissed yet. It wasn’t until they were getting ready for their double date on Friday that the subject came up.

“So, how does he kiss?” Ian asked, pulling the hairbrush through the tangles.

Kane raised an eyebrow at him while he worked on his spikes. “Uh, who?”

Ian blinked. “How many people have you kissed?”

“Um… let me think… one,” Kane said, staring at Ian.

Ian turned his head. “Wait. You haven’t kissed Kenji yet?”

Kane shook his head. “No. We just… haven’t really had the opportunity.” He blushed. “I hope he does tonight, though.” He turned his attention back to the mirror and messed with his spikes a little more. “And maybe more,” he muttered.

Ian blinked again. “Wow. Well. Um… I hope so, too…” But strangely, Ian wasn’t sure what he was hoping for. He found himself just a tiny bit glad that he was still the only person Kane had ever kissed. He shoved that away. That was silly. Kane wasn’t his only kiss. It wasn’t right.

The knock on the door came a few minutes later and Kane and Ian grinned at each other. “It’s your boyfriend,” they said at the same time and laughed, then scrambled to be the first one at the door.

They, of course, got there at the same time and were wrestling over the door handle when Ian’s mother pushed them both aside and opened it for them. “BOYS! Your dates are here!” she said wickedly and they looked up in embarrassment at both Kenji and Hayden, who were grinning.

Kane and Ian both blushed. “Um, Hi,” Ian said and slid out of the door toward Hayden who took his hand and immediately dropped a kiss on him. Ian’s blush faded.
“Hi, Kenji,” Kane said, his color getting darker.

Kenji’s grin widened. “Hi yourself.” He took Kane’s hand as Kane stepped out the door.

“Eleven boys, don’t forget,” Ian’s mother said and Kane and Ian both nodded.

“I’ll have them here on time,” Hayden promised.

“I know you will, Hayden.” She glanced from one boy to the next. “Be safe,” she said and three faces turned red. Kenji cast a puzzled look at the others, but Hayden just waved a hand. Later.

When they were settled into the jeep, Kenji and Kane in the back holding hands and Ian and Hayden in the front, Hayden looked in the rearview. “The first day I was over here, poor Ian got pulled into the kitchen for a safe sex talk.”

“Oh geez. In front of you?” Kenji asked, casting an empathetic look at Ian.

“Not exactly, but he was so embarrassed, he was still bright red when he came out. So we all now know that when she says that, she’s not talking about my driving.” Hayden chuckled, then glanced at his boyfriend and squeezed his hand. Ian was still blushing. When they stopped at the next light, he leaned over and dropped a kiss on Ian.

“No wonder he turned so red.” Kenji shook his head and turned to Kane. “She talk to you?”

Kane shook his head. “No. For one, the main thing that spawned it was that she saw them kissing. She hasn’t seen me kissing anyone yet. And for the other, she knew that Ian would say something to me.”

“I’m still mad he got out of it. He should have to die of embarrassment too.” Ian grumbled from the front seat and they all laughed.
