Always Yours .:1:.Zacky sighed deeply as he set his last box down onto the floor of his new house. Matt and Johnny had only lived there for a few days before claiming it was haunted, but Zacky believed in no such thing. Ghosts were just a ridiculous, moronic concept to him. He wiped his hands of the work for the day, grabbing only a few necessities from his boxes for the night before getting everything set up so that he could climb into bed after a nice hot shower and unwind to take his mind off things. He finally was done unpacking and went to lie down for a moment so that he could catch his breath, then he would get in the shower.Always Yours .:1:.5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Unseen by the man lying on the bed, he smirked at the man's shape on the bed.
He was gorgeous, hazel eyes tinted gold, and raven black hair that was sexily unruly. This newcomer was single and much quieter than the other two men who seemed to have only had a honeymoon here because they never came back.
This unseen man watching the angel on the bed was not a ghost per say. He

"No! No...It's just...I came here to see what making love feels like...but I just realized...me being slow, that you have to love the person you're making love to...otherwise it's just a lustful moment of two people...well...doing the deed." He said with a shrug. He continued frowning, seeming deep in thought.
Johnny looked at the Jimmy for the first time since he had gotten there. His skin was a fair color, his eyes ocean blue. The raven hair was spiked and fashioned in a sexy style. His body was slender and long, his hands large and free from calluses. His clothes fit him almost too perfectly, showing off his not overly muscled body.
Everything Johnny wanted in a man was sitting right beside him, and he suddenly had an act of conscience and was not going to do what he paid for.
Scars .:Three:.Brian's arms were stretched above his head, lying next to Zacky on a mattress that felt like a cloud. The night was growing late, and both of them would fall asleep soon, but Brian fought his eye lids from closing as he looked at Zacky. "...You're an awesome person, Zee."Scars .:Three:.5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Zacky laughed. "Thanks?" he said, not sure what to say. "You're awesome, too."
He chuckled and closed his eyes. Brian lost the war with his eye lids, and his head lulled slightly to where his chin touched Zacky's shoulder as his breathing deepened and slowed.
Zacky looked over at him with a smile, kissing the top of Brian's head playfully. "Night..." he said quietly before wiggling his feet carefully under the covers as to not disturb Brian. It wasn't long before he fell asleep, his body seeming magnetized towards Brian's warm one, his limbs wrapping lovingly around Brian's middle.
Johnny stood as still as a board, the wind only moving his hair slightly. His feet were planted on the front porch, and he held up his a

She smiled and collected his name before handing him Johnny's key. "Nice to see you again. Enjoy your time!"
"Thank you!" He said before bounding up to Johnny's room, knowing he looked like an extreme goon.
Johnny tapped the antique truck back and forth over the table, his chin resting on the table's top as he gazed at the wooden vehicle. His eyes seemed a little emptier than earlier that day when Jimmy had last seen him.
"Jay...?" Jimmy asked softly, closing the door behind him, looking at him gently.
With a small twitch, Johnny's eyes looked up at Jimmy. He frowned some and then looked back at the truck that sat still now. "Hey, Jimmy..."
"What's wrong?" Jimmy asked, sitting on the bed slowly, stroking Johnny's hair carefully.
Johnny brokenly sighed. "Same old things..." His lips deepened the frown as he started to barely tap the truc

Johnny occasionally watched them speeding by in a blur, going in their own direction for their own destinations.
The bridge wasn't much farther.
He felt his phone vibrating against his thigh nearly nonstop, but he never picked it up to talk to whoever was calling. He knew there were two people who definitely weren't calling, the last time he'd seen them they were watching TV or reading a book as he made himself supper consisting of whatever was in the fridge. The only sound they ever made when he was in the room were occasionally clearing of throats. He always felt like he could cut the tension with a knife.
He thought bitterly about the way they would just cast their eyes up at him wh

He closed his eyes, a smile stretching over his lips. "...That makes me so happy." A giggle came loose from his lips and the smile widened even more.
Zacky suddenly captured Brian's lips in another kiss before groaning. "I think I'm going to skip work tomorrow..."
Brian laughed, rolling so that Zacky lay on top of him. "Do it...And stay here with me all day."
"Will I have to pay double?" Zacky asked with a small smirk.
"Absolutely not." He kissed Zacky's neck multiple times. "I need to hold you longer than just a night."
Zacky smiled big, his fingers running down Brian's body. "That would be nice..."
Brian's lips left a small mark just under Zacky's ear. He bit his lip and looked into Zacky's sleek, soft face. "I love you."
"I love you, too..." Zacky whispered, looking back at Brain. "Hey...I have a question."
"Hmm?" He kissed the corner of

She smiled, understanding. Her lips parted as an invitation for a kiss, and she let her eyes slip closed.
Matt smiled gently before pressing his lips carefully to hers, and everything around them, the waves, the bugs, the whole place, seemed to disappear. It was just them two, there, confessing their love for one another.
Val trembled in his arms, and her knees wobbled from being weak. Her fingers twirled the little hairs at Matt's hairline.
Matt held her at her lower back, supporting her as the hairs on the back of his neck stood up.
The butterflies seemed to swarm up, leaving Val's mouth in a bubbly giggle.
She kissed his cheek and then nuzzled her face into his neck. "Thank you for the dance, Mattie..."
"It was my pleasure," he laughed, feeling the waves lap gently around their feet. He slipped off his dress shoes and socks, throwing them to the side.

He sat up slowly, blinking through the haziness of his eyes. "Val...?" he called out softly.
The suitcases were gone, placed in a corner. From the way they fell in on themselves he knew they were empty; clothes sticking out of her drawer showed that she had unpacked and put everything back into its place. There was footsteps overhead, signaling that she was in her sanctuary, on her roof.
He got up slowly, squinting. What time of day was it? he wondered, wondering how long he had slept. The clock struck 8:00 PM with a tiny 'beep'. Her calendar read that it was days ago that everything had happened. He blinked slowly again before going to leave the room. Remembering he wasn't dressed, he began searching for clothes while hoping and praying no one would come in. The clean clothes she placed on the sink are s

Jimmy instantly dropped everything he was doing and sprinted towards the source of the noise, crying out Johnny's name in utter panic. His heart pounded against his ribs as his joints burned slightly with protest, having not ran in a long while. When he made it to the kitchen, there was only one person leaning against the counter with a bored expression gracing his face. Johnny looked up at Jimmy, raising a brow. "Yeah?"
At Johnny's feet were the remnants of their dining room table torn to pieces.
Jimmy stared in horror, his hand grabbing his chest as he panted. "Oh, no..." he said quietly.
His face grew pale. He wasn't sure why he was panicking, but it just scared him to see Johnny going through this now.
He blinked at Jimmy. "You okay?" He then nonchalantly kicked a s

Brian looked at Zacky's hand before back at the TV, gripping the remote tight in his hand.

After popping the door knob out of the new hole in the wall, Brian joined Zacky on the couch. Propping his feet up on the coffee table, he said, "Well, since you missed out on the small party, I felt bad..." He fiddled with his bracelet, pretending to become enthralled by it so that he didn't have to meet Zacky's gaze.
Zacky raised a brow. "Oh, well, it's not your fault!" He chuckled and patted Brian's arm. "Did you happen to bring me some booze?" he asked with a playful chuckle.
"No," an amused laugh bubbled from Brian's lips before he added, "Jimmy drank it all. I only had two bottles."
Zacky simply shook his head with a big smile, setting the pillow he had been holding his arms to his free side, leaning against it slightly as he looked at the wall ahead of him. "That's Jimmy boy, for ya..."

"No...I am real, Zacky. I'm just...Not what you think." The voice was so familiar; it gave a tingling sensation in the pit of Zacky's stomach.
Zacky was quiet for a moment, twirling the phone cord before sighing slowly. "It's you, isn't it?" He was hopeless, knowing his questions were never answered.
"Yes," the answer was as clear as a bell, and the tone it came in was amusement.
Zacky couldn't help but smile. "If I were to go back up to my bedroom...will you be there?"
"I'll be where ever you need me to be," the voice chuckled lightly, and then the tone became more determined, "I am real...And you're not insane, just know that, okay?"

Silky black hair, lively green eyes, chinese-doll skin that had a shine to it when the light hit him just right. He was built fairly well, he knew how to pack a punch. His naturally cherry red lips were full and luscious, his ex-boyfriends always told him what a great kisser he was. They were exes because they refused him dominance.

"I have a theory," Garth proposed, "that I will make one poptart."
Wanting nothing more than to oppose Garth's hypothesis, Conroy retorted with a disagreement. "And I myself have a theory of contradiction. I deem that you will not craft such a delicacy that entitles the name of poptart."
Garth seized a poptart from the pantry with full intention to cook it as he too wished only to differ from any sort of event Conroy may attend or any thought which he may deviate.
Conroy thought of this claim which he made so boldly when the notion dawned on him that contradicting Garth's theory for nothing more than the sake of contradiction was a foolish move. As much as he wished to preserve his reputation, he was caught i

Brian set the empty popcorn bowl down and sighed as the credits began rolling up the screen. "Good movie..." He smiled over at Zacky, kissing his cheek. He felt the moistness and smiled coyly. "...Baby, was the movie sad?"
"No..." Zacky lied, looking over a picture frame on the wall. "It was stupid at the end. I mean really?" His voice shook unmistakably as he tried to snuggle down closer to keep his face hidden.
He smiled gooberishly, poking Zacky's side. "Hey...Hey..."
