Chapter 54: Resonance
Adam opens the door to his cabin, and entered along with Gregory. He closes the door, and then turn to plant his hand onto the door, and moved down to push his mouth against the other. Greg closes his eyes as his pants quickly feel tighter as Adam softly lapped and nibbled on his lips.
Adam slides a hand underneath Greg's shirt, and pulled it up. God, it's been a long time since Adam had it out with a pudgy guy - not since his last exboyfriend.
Chubby guys always seem to have a very cuddly appeal. They give the best hugs, their wide frames gives so much room to give proper squeezes and warmth, and just the heft of gravity just sends out an earthy feel to them. Greg in particular just seems to have that innocent charm that makes him so adorable.
The two of them climbed into bed, just after Adam pulls of Greg's shirt, and wrapped one arm around him, and started grabbing one of his pouchy chest. Greg moans more as Adam grabs and rubs his fluffy form, cuddling on top of him, and gently gnawing on Greg's cheek.
Merrick is escorted inside of Tom's cabin. He walks in, and turns around just as Tom undoes his own pants and lets them drop to his ankles. The blonde stand on his tippy does to kiss the much taller, muscular man. Tom grunts and moans from the sudden kiss, not even getting a chance to fully strip first.
After a rather rough start, Tom unbuttons his shirt, and shows Merrick his broad, juicy pecs, with a golden ring pierced on his thick nipple - a little trinket Merrick must have missed in the lockerroom.
Men like this guy, tall and muscular, they just seem to have this overwhelming power on their stature alone. Without having to give much notice, they give off this sense of command to make cute little twinks like Merrick just to drop to their knees and suck them off right there.
Tom shrugged his shirt off and let Merrick attach his mouth to his right silver ring. Tom bites his lip as Merrick's teeth and tongue press and pull on that hot piece of metal on the sensitive nub, before glancing to the side, and moving to tend to the other nipple. Tom put his arms around Merrick as he grinds his tighty-whites against him.
Greg blushes and moans as Adam had him laid down on his bed, wearing nothing but his worn boxerbreifs. Adam huffs and growles as he kisses and licks Greg's plump chest, nuzzling the small patch of hair in the middle, while pushing his hands onto the soft under area on the side. Adam's cock throbs in his skibbies as he licks and kisses Greg's big, round tummy.
"Hhhhh" Adam pushes his face against Greg's belly, and rubs that broad, squishy girth, making Greg whimper and squirm as that tongue licked and trailed on his sensitive naval, not to mention how touchy his midsection is, making a wet splotch in his red underpants. Adam digs his arms under Greg to hug and nuzzle that large gut, before kissing his way down.
He bites his lip as Adam rubs and squeezes his very unimpressive tent. Adam was smashed as heck when he sucked off this guy, so he can't remember how big he is. Greg closes his eyes shut, prepared for the laughter no doubt to come after Adam sees his dick.
Tom reaches down, and squeeze's Merrick's right buttcheek as the two of them stood in the shower, their legs entwined as they made out. The larger man growls and huffs as Merrick yanks and manhandles one of his nipple rings, his dick throbbing in his briefs like a trapped snake as they grabbed each other, sliding their fingers along their uncannily smooth flesh.
"Ghhhh... You're a hot little fucker, aren't you?" Tom growls as Merrick chokes his fat dick in his underwear, saturated from the water. Merrick gnaws on his lower lip as they rose more steam just from the hot action in the shower. Merrick's cock pushes against Tom's rod-shaped bulge as they rubbed their hot lips with each other like a couple of foggy animals.
Merrick moves down onto his knees and roughly pushed his mouth on the soaked fabic of the Hanes underwear. He gropes the rounded pouch below while pressing his lips harshly onto the hard meat within.
Adam yanks Greg's undies off to see the chubby's short member, estimating at least 3 or so inches. Greg's face felt hot, right before he felt a hot warmth take his penis. "O-Oohh~!" He moans as Adam sucks on his pecker, pulling his foreskin back, and licking around the head. His large belly tenses and bobs as Adam teased his dick with his tongue.
Greg moans with pleasure as Adam slurps his small wang with hunger, before popping the little soldier out of his mouth, and kissing its base before licking Greg's sweaty balls, and started making out with his sac.
The chubby's toes curled as Adam worked on his most intimate areas, not believe just how into it he really is! Most guys become uninterested when they see his small endowment, but this guy is just digging into him. He moans pitifully, but holding in giggling as Adam licked and kisses the thighs around his genitals. That mouth is both tickling and massaging his nether regions as Adam playfully smacks his lips around.
Merrick rubs Tom's thick, hard thighs as he turns in the shower. He peels his undies back, and moons Merrick with his manly black ass. The merman then pressed his face right between those cheeks, his own dick standing right up as he licks from the base of Tom's dark balls, along his hot crack, over his pucker, and to the top of the crevice.
"Aw yeah~" Tom moaned as he felt Merrick's hands grab both cheeks, and pulled them part to dig into his ass, "Yeah, eat that hole." Tom growled as he pushed his rear back against Merrick's face.
Tom puts his hand onto the tile wall as Merrick's tongue pushed and rubbed against his taint. He pulled his huge cock, and began to pump it, having the water rush down his godly muscles and squeezing his magnificent monster. Merrick closes his eyes as he massaged the tight entrance with his lips and licked it. His head began to feel light and unfocused as his hands dug and grabbed both mounds while licking that hot star.
"Ohhh, oh, ohhh~!" Greg moaned as his head tossed side to side as Adam slurped and licked Greg's cute penis, swipping up the precum from his uncut manhood and twirling his tongue against the slit.
"I'm gonna cum, I'm gonna cum..." Greg whines as he grabs the sheets as his big belly tightens and bounces from the intense breathing. Nonetheless, Adam put his mouth over Greg's small dick, and engulfed it quite easily. Greg, thrashed and moaned out as Adam pushed his thighs out, massaging and grabbing his wide meaty legs as he sucked him.
"Ohhnnn! Nnnhh! Ohh! NNN!" Greg clenches his eyes shut and tenses as his Napoleon cannon shot out a hot, sticky load. Adam's cheeks puffed a little as his mouth filled with Greg's spunk.
"Fuck... Oh fuck yeah!" Tom spread his legs out to have Merrick dig in further into his ass. Slathering his balls up with body was, the bodybuilder masturbates with his cock on one hand, and his nuts on the other as Merrick ate him out.
"Fuck, just like that!" He moans as Merrick rubbed his tongue in tracing shapes. His hand jack hammered on his fat rod as Merrick roughly massaged and rubbed his full, perfect butt. Merrick moaned as he focused on licking and tongue-fucking this tall dark male's rearend as he pleasures himself, with every lick of his asshole easily escalating him.
"Fuck! Ohhh fuck yes, don't stop, don't stop~!" Tom moaned out as he worked his dick over, before choking his heavy manhood to squirt a huge, long white rope out, "GAHHH!" He howls out as his dick painted the wet tiles of the shower.
Greg pants and moans in bliss as Adam crawls next to him. He pushes himself to the side, and rubs Adam's side as he cuddles and kisses him. Though spent, he still paws on and snuggles against Adam affectionately.
"Mmm..." Adam hums as the cute pudgy guy nuzzle and kisses his chest, rubbing his nipples tenderly as he feels along Adam's hip, "No, wait, hang on." Adam says, making Greg stop with a confused look, "I can't do this."
"Huh?" Adam got up, and moved to the side of the bed, holding himself as he leaned forward, "Why not? What's the matter?" His shoulders slumped, "It's me, isn't it?"
Merrick softly kisses and nibbles on Tom's muscular bottom, sleepily gnawing on his rump as his eyes became extremely heavy. He can hear Tom's voice, but every noise around him is becoming distorted.
"No..." He mumbles, "No, ssstop..." Merrick moaned as he started to tremble, feeling Tom turn around, "No... I don't wanna do this anymore... Please don't make me..." His hand fumbles for Tom's leg, before he felt gravity shift, and everything goes black.
"Hey! Hey, kid, you ok?? Wake up! Oh my God, what's wrong??" Tom kneels down, feeling Merrick's neck and chest as he lays there, motionless.
"No, it's not you," Adam said, "Don't get me wrong, I would love to pound that hot little butt of yours and make you squeal like a little sex pig." He said with a playful smile. Greg groaned a little, that statement turning him on a little.
"Just... Hahhh..." Adam put his hands to his face, pressing his palms together, and closing his eyes, "I have a boyfriend."
"I know, but..." Greg blushed a little, "I figured you guys had an open relationship or something... He's a slender blonde guy, right?"
"Yeah, he's the one." Adam said, "But no, we don't have an open relationship... We're fighting right now, and..."
"... So wait." Greg frown a little, "You're just using me to get back at him?"
"I wouldn't call it that... More like..." Adam turned back around on the bed, "More like... Just letting off some steam." He sighs as he got up, "Look, I'm sorry, I'm a total ass, you don't have to stay if you don't-"
"N-No, it's ok!" Greg said. Adam looks at him and huffs as he covers his eyes.
"I'm sorry, I just... I been feeling so lonely. We aren't speaking to each other, and... I keep having nightmares, and he's not around to help me... And I just really..."
Greg scooted to the side of the bed, where Adam can see, before he turned. Adam sniffled a little, and then climbs into bed with him, and they both go under the covers. Adam moves in and spoons against Greg, wrapping his arms around him, and holding that adorable pudgy teddy bear.
"Nnnhh..." Merrick moans as he slowly wakes up. His head feels so cloudy and heavy, like he's been sleeping for months. His whole body feels like he weighs a ton. There's something moist and cold on his head as his surroundings slowly stopped spinning.
"Thank God, you ok, buddy?" Came a familiar voice. Merrick peers, and sees Tom wearing a T-shirt and his briefs, right next to him in the bed.
"Nnnnhhhhgggg..." Merrick groggily got up, shaking his head, "What happened..."
"You got my off in the shower, and when I turned around to get you off, you passed out. You scared the shit outta me man, I thought you OD'd or something!"
"Nnnhh, no..." Merrick groaned, "I uh... I have a delicate constitution," He lied, "I suffer from frequent dehydration, it's happened before."
"Yeah, I called a medic in here not long ago, that's what he said it was." Tom picked up a bottle of water, and offered it to Merrick, who then accepted it.
"I'm an idiot," Merrick commented before he gulped down the icy cold water.
"What do you mean?"
"I figured... He was going with this one other guy, so I thought I may as well go with you..." He looked up at Tom, "I have a boyfriend, and... I'm really mad at him."
"Ah shit, are you serious??"
"We had a bad fight!" Merrick turned on the bed, "I don't expect you to understand... It's not like I'm trying to show him up or anything... Just forget it, I'm leaving as soon as my head stops throbbing."
"Few days ago, before we left the island," Adam said, "You know I got really drunk, right?"
"Mhm," Greg nodded as he feels Adam snuggling behind him. He blushes as this very attractive man lays close to him.
"And, we went to this spot I know... We cuddled for a while, and then I said something so fucking stupid..."
"I uh... I said that our relationship was too flawless. I just... Sometimes, when I'm watching Queer As Folk, or on Eating Out 3 and 4, where the two man characters broke up, and then got back together... They reconcile, and they get back together cause they're meant for each other and stuff, you know?"
"And he broke up with you?" Greg asked.
"No..." Adam shook his head with half his face pressing on the pillow, "But now he won't forgive me..."
"My boyfriend..." Merrick began. Tom sits on the bed as Merrick stays curled up, "He said some terrible things that he didn't mean a while ago... Thinking back on it, I really shouldn't be as bitter about it as I am now..."
"What did he say that was so horrible?"
"It's complicated." Merrick sat up, "Again, I don't expect you to understand me."
"Hey, hey! Hold up," Tom grabbed his shoulder, "Take it easy, you just woke up."
"I'm fine, alright??" Merrick said, "You don't need to comfort me."
"Look, can we skip the tough guy act, please?" Tom said, "I got enough of that from my exgirlfriend, alright?" He said. Merrick scoffed a little.
"You're bi, then?"
"More like Pansexual." He replied. Merrick rolled his eyes - another complicated label to make things difficult for the person, why do humans feel the need to be so over-elaborate?
"It's... Kinda complicated with me and him. I don't know how to put it, but he and I are kinda like soulmates..." Adam said, "We can't break up."
"He sounds like he hates you though. Why can't you two break-up?"
"Again, it's complicated. We're... Really meant for each other. We're practically joined at the hip."
"Ok, so exactly happened to make him so mad? Just saying that your guys' romance is too perfect can't have set him off."
"Besides that, I..." Adam sighed, "I also trashed the way he lived his life. Before he moved in with me, he had his own life, he had a planned purpose, he had a loving family..." Adam bowed his head, "And he lost everything because of me."
"Ah, don't say that," Greg said as he turns and faces Adam, "If he lost everything, you wouldn't bother being around him so much."
"You don't get it," Adam said, "He had his whole life planned out... He was raised in a very simple and standard environment, and when his parents found out he was my boyfriend, they kicked him out, and everything just fell apart."
"So, he just has to start over, that's all."
"That's the thing, it's not that easy." Adam groaned as he grew sleepy, "Starting over, for him, is like forsaking himself..."
"I don't share my feelings." Merrick stubbornly said, "I need to be strong enough to stand on my own, and I should not burden anyone just because I feel like I'm losing my mind."
"Yeah, my ex said the exact same thing." Tom said, "You even look like her a little."
"It's not as simple as you think..." Merrick persisted, "There are things that I really can't say... Things that I NEED to keep secret, for my own sake, and for others."
"That's fine, just walk around them," Tom walked on his knees on the bed, and put his arms around Merrick from behind, "You can't hold that stuff in all the time, or it's going to kill you." He said softly. Merrick turned his head, and closed his eyes as they began to water. "Everybody needs that moment where everything comes out, and then have somebody hug them tight, and say that it's going to be ok."
"... But I don't want to..." Merrick said, "What kind of... Person am I if I can't even hold my emotions intact?"
"Heh," Tom gently laid Merrick back down, "A normal one..." Merrick sniffled as he shook his head.
"I hate this... I'm always crying... I hate that I can't even stop that."
"... It's ok, buddy..." Tom said, "It's gonna be ok..." Merrick wiped his eyes for a moment, "You don't need to make yourself deal with this stuff alone."
"Forsaking himself?" Greg asked, "What's that supposed to mean?"
"He was raised in a very old-fashioned, traditional way..." Adam tried to say, "It's like his whole lot in life was set in stone, but by being with me, it all shattered into pebbles and fragments. And now he's got nowhere to try and rebuild. You have no idea how much of a shock it was to him..."
"Personally, I think he's making too much out of what happened. What have you done to make it up to him?"
"I bought him flowers, I apologized up and down, but I don't know what else to do."
"Maybe he just needs his space."
"I figured that, but this whole thing is stressing me out." Adam hugged Greg tighter, "I haven't slept a full night since this whole thing's started."
"Awwooh" Greg snuggled closer.
"I still feel so hurt, but I miss him so much..." Merrick said, "I'm so torn between loving him and hating him." He harshly clutches to the sheets as he feels the man's arms around him.
"Just think of the good times you two had." Tom advised, "That's how my Dad put up with my Mom all these years until they worked through their problems."
"I've tried that," Merrick moaned, "But something keeps blocking it..." Merrick holds himself back, "Every time I think about forgiving him, my anger comes right back to hurt me..."
"That just means that you're not ready yet." Tom shrugged.
"But I'm sick of it... Now that he knows what's hurting me, it shouldn't be so bad, but just seeing his face makes me remember when he said those awful things to me."
"Maybe he just hasn't made it up to you the tight way yet."
"But..." Merrick closes his eyes, "He already does so much for me... I don't know how or when this can me resolved..."
"Thank you for staying..." Adam said as he huddled with the chubby guy in the dark, "I need this so much... Cuddling I mean."
"Your welcome," Greg said as he nuzzled Adam's chest. Now that he's not sleeping alone, Adam feels drowsier at night than the last few nights.
"Mnnnhh..." Adam dozes off peacefully for the first time in so long.
"Please, don't..." Merrick shook his head, "I don't want to talk anymore." He tries to hold back his emotions, getting rather sick of breaking down.
"Alright, it's ok," Tom said as he turned off the light, and climbed into bed, "You can crash here tonight." After a pause after Tom got under the covers, Merrick moves himself next to the beefy man, and put his hand on his chest.
Tom puts his arm around Merrick, and pulled him in closer. It's at least better than curling up alone on the cruise's roof.
---The Next Night---
"~This is~ the part when I say I don't want ya~ I'm stronger than I've been before!~" A handful of lewd dancers prance around the song 'Break Free', both male and female, and all of them wearing an assigned number, to be announced as the winners of the 3-Day contest. Several hidden judges look and nod, noting each and every dancer as they gracefully move their bodies.
"~This is~ the part when I break freeeee~ 'Cause I can't resist it no more~!" Merrick, in an erotic outfit spins and swoops in his dancing. His hand meets another as hand as he rotates around with another male dancer, and sways with an erotic rhythm.
Adam looks with reluctance at his dancing boyfriend, both annoyed and a little dazzled at Merrick's appearance and performance.
"Yo, Adam." Jamal said from the side. Adam looked and turned back to watch the show.
"Hey." Adam took a sip from his drink.
"So." Jamal looked at him with disapproval, "Was he good?"
"What that chubbo good for ya? Musta been a hot night, cause you look a lot better." Jamal told him bitterly.
"We didn't fuck, Jamal." Adam said irritantly as took another drink. Jamal raised his eyebrows.
"No. Well," Adam shrugged, "I gave him a blowjob and spooned with him, but I didn't get off. Something tells me I don't deserve to blow my wad."
"Well," Jamal took a seat next to him, "It's a start."
"I just... I still don't know how I'm going to fix this..." Adam says as he bows his head down.
Once the final song was finished, all of the Gogo Dancers stood in a line, holding hands as Queen Jizzelle stood before them, wearing a large, fluffy feather headdress, a pair of huge fluffy wings, a silver one-piece that covers her fake breasts, torso, and groin, with her legs covered in shiny silver panty hose, and fluffy high-heels.
"Yes! Marvelous, aren't they, ladies and gentlemen~?!" She said in a her booming voice, "Yes, wonderful, PLEASE give them one last round of applause for our loverly dancers~!"
The crowd cheered, whistled, and called out as the sexy dancers raised their joined hands up, and they took a bow as one.
"YEEES~!" Queen Jizzelle daintily clapped her fancy gloved hands, "As the dancers go and get changed, our sleuthy judges will make their final judgments, and I shall proclaim the winners of all our contests for the cruise~! Let's MOVE them out, darlings~!" The crowd roared with appreciation as the exotic dancers exited the many stages and platforms, and into their respective lockerrooms.
Nick, fully dressed for the first time in days, walks up to Merrick pulling on his shirt. "Hey man." He said, leaning on one leg, and crossing his arms.
"Here to try and scoop more information out of me, Nick?" Merrick asked, his Triton intuition kicking in, "Let me guess, you saw me leave with that man after I finished dancing in the shower box."
"Look, man, I'm not here to say you shouldn't a done it, but I will say that doin that kinda stuff don't make ya feel as good as you think."
"Well then," Merrick said as he pulled his shorts up between he legs, "Good thing I didn't have him fuck my ass, or else I'd probably be falling apart now."
"Oh, you didn't-"
"No. I just gave him a rimjob, and slept in his bed for the night."
"Ah, aight. Kinda glad, though. I know Adam's a dick for sayin that stuff, but at least you didn't-"
"Lets not talk about it." Merrick cut him short, "I'd rather I not repeat events that did me no good." Nick simply shrugged.
"Alright, my lovelies~!" Queen Jizzelle announced as she got up on stage. "Let's get down to announcing the winners of our contests~!" A man wearing a black jockstrap, white cuffs, and a bowtie walked up with a jeweled box with several drawers came up on the drag queen's left side, and a woman with a glimmering black swimsuit holding a layered tray with cloths holding all of the medals.
"Mm, such lovely servants, MMM~!" Queen Jizzelle commented, "Let us start the winners wiiiith," She opened one of the glamorous drawers, and picked out an envelope, and taking a glance at it, "The Precious Painters Contest~!" Queen Jizzelle announced. The woman on her right produced three medals with a brush metal brush on a clear plastic ring on them, "3rd Place belongs too..." She looks on the paper, "... Gregory Trenton!"
Applause came as Adam spotted the cute chubby guy from last night move up on stage, and accepted the bronze brush medal. He smiled and clapped, 'Good for him, good for him' He thought.
"2nd Place goes to... Erika Callen~!" A green-haired girl came on up, and accepted the silver brush medal, and stood next to Greg, "And 1st Place goes to... Haley Struthen!" Another girl ran up, and accepted the golden brush medal, "Lets give them a hand, my darlings~!" The crowd clapped and cheered for them before they exited the stage.
Queen Jizzelle announced the winners for the Creative Costume contest, the Fabulous Fiction contest - in which applicants wrote up erotic or creative short stories, the Spectacular Sculptors contest, the Daring Divers contest - which Tom had one 3rd place in. And now Queen Jizzelle just got done with her personal favorite, the Delicious Drag contest.
"Mmm, I would LOVE to do this one, but you all know how unfair that would be~" She giggles before waving her hand for the winners, "Lets give them a charitable round, darlings~!" She cheekily said. The crowd applauded the three drag winners as they left the stage.
"And now we come to our Stellar Singers Contest~!" She opened the envelope from the sexy man as the erotic woman prepared the bundle of curving, sterling music note medals.
"3rd Place goes to... Albert Hall!" A skinny guy came up, and accepted the bronze music note, "2nd Place goes to... Debra Quiller!" A young transsexual woman came up, and took the silver medal, "And 1st Place goes to... Syrinx Amour!"
There came a pause, but no one came to accept the golden music note medal, "Ahem, 1st Place Stellar Singer, Syrinx Amour~!" Queen Jizzelle announced again, but no one came up, "Hellooo~ Where are you darling~?" The crowd turned their heads, but Syrinx didn't show up, "Oh dear, looks like she's not going to make it." Queen Jizzelle pouted.
"Ahh~! Ohh! Oh my God, yes~!" Syrinx moans out as Kevin is above his girlfriend, thrusting into her over and over.
"God, you feel so good," Kevin panted as he grooved his hips in and out in a rolling rhythm.
"Oh well, no worries," Queen Jizzelle waved her hand in dismissal, "We'll have her medal delivered to their cabin after the festivities~
"And now, last, but certainly not least, the Graceful Gogo Contest~!" The manly jock handed her the last envelope just as the busty lady unfolded the double half-diamond medals with a small jewel at the center.
"Alright now, 3rd Place goes to... Diana Rosetta!" A violet-haired girl climbed up on stage, and accepted the bronze. "2nd Place goes to... Merrick Piscien!"
"Ah??" Merrick blinked in surprise.
"Huh??" Adam gapped a little, and then saw his fully clothed boyfriend scamper up on stage, and accepted the shining silver medal.
"And the 1st Place winner is... Nicholas Rodriguez!"
"Oh shit!" Jamal said as he saw his hot Latino trot right up there, and take the gold.
"Lets give them a big round of applause, lovelies~!" The crowd cheered as Nick, Merrick, and Diana bowed and waved.
"YEAH!" Jamal roared out, "THAT'S MAH BOO! That's mah boo!" He clapped hard, "Hahaha, WOO!!"
"Marvelous, simply magnificent~!" Queen Jizzelle claps with glee, "Please attend tomorrow night, where we'll be announcing the Notable Awards~! See you all then my sweeties~!" The flamboyant drag queen stepped off from stage, so the next singer goes on up, wearing a brown leather codpiece and a cape, along with two other nearly naked men with brown codpieces and holding spears and shields, and began playing the rhythm and lyrics of Theban, by Sebastian Castro.
Merrick walks in the dancing crowd, and glances towards the bar. His eyes met with Adam's for a moment. He felt a small urge go to him, but just walks off with a glance. Adam looks sadly, as his lover becomes mixed in the masses. Merrick didn't look angry this time, more like... Forlorn.
Adam looked at his drink, and took a few deep breaths. His heart is pounding at what he's about to do...
He tipped his drink down his throat, and walked into the crowd.
Pushing and shoving through the crowd, Adam found his way to Queen Jizzelle, sitting at the Volunteer Table, where guests can sign up to do musical numbers.
"Ahem, hey uh, Your Majesty?" Adam said. Queen Jizzelle looks up and gives him a wide smile.
"Oh hello there, Fuzz Boooy~! What can I do for you, precious~?"
"I wanna sign up to do a number."
"That would be perfect, you can go up right after the Theban number!" Adam nodded, his stomach churning with nerves, "Which routine would you like to do~?"
"I wanna sing..." Adam double checked the list of acts, songs, and performances " Act Number 73."
"But," Adam interrupted, earning an annoyed, quizzical look from the drag queen.
"But what, Honeycakes?" Queen Jizzelle asked tensely.
"Could I um... Change some of the lyrics, please?"
"What KIND of changes?" She asked as her voice thickened, still agitated that she was interrupted.
"Um, do you have a copy of the lyrics? A-And a pen, please?"
"Careful, sweetcheeks," Queen Jizzelle takes the sheet of paper with the lyrics to Your Heart, and a pen, "We need to save these for other singers."
"Yes, ma'am." Adam took the pen, and wrote on the page, near the end of the song. He rewrote a few of the words, and then showed it to Queen Jizzelle.
"Very well then," She shaped her fingers, and a couple of sexy men came up, "This is Kyle and Jordan, they will be your back-up boys." She gave one of the men the song page, "Please memorize these, CHANGES," She said with a stern glance at Adam, "And get him ready for the number - he's going with 73."
"Yes, Highness." Said Jordan, "This way, uh..."
"A-Adam" He said as they went.
Merrick grooves by himself in the mass of men and women, trying to lose himself to the beat of the music, his neat silver medal glinting in the many colorful laser lights as the music booms in the Dance Lobby.
Participating in the Graceful Gogo contest wasn't as satisfying as he thought. It's not winning 2nd place that's disappointing him, but just the idea of dancing for crowds just to spite Adam for his anger. All he's left with is more emptiness inside him. Like he said before, he wants to forgive Adam, but a lingering grudge still clouds in his head.
Once the current performance ended, the singers walked off the stage as party music proceeded to play along in between performances. The stage altered for a darker background with an array of starlights on a wall of blue velvet, before a large, flat circle lowered down among the dots of white light, and lit up as a full moon. The music died down, leading other people to cast their sights onto the stage.
Two men half naked with silver streaks in their hair, only wearing black leather pants and bicker gloves came up. Adam came up, his hair groomed in a rebellious yet formal style, with some subtle silver designs around his eyes. He wears a white sleeveless vest that in enclosed around his torso, and is covered by a black leather coat with a wide collar pinned on his shoulders neatly. Over his hands are white ruffles that come from within his sleeves. He also wears tight jeans, adorned with pair shimmering chains from his belt, draped over his outer thighs, and behind him.
He grabs the microphone, and brought it up to his mouth, "Uh, hey, hi! How's everybody doing tonight?" He asked sheepishly. The crowd cheered for him in answering his question. He smiles and nodded, "My name's Adam Bryant, and I will be dedicated the next song to my beautiful boyfriend." A few people cooed with affection, "He's that adorable blonde guy right over there, Merrick Piscien."
Adam pointed, and a few people turned. Merrick turned himself around, refusing to look at Adam, "You all know him, he won 2nd place as a Gogo Dancer - personally, I think he deserves 1st place." A few people chuckled at that.
"We've been together for 8 years now." The people cheered encouragingly from that. Adam smiled from the response, "Yeeeaaah!" Adam said, nodding, "Can't imagine my life without him." After the crowd calmed down, he continued, "Except there's a problem..." He took a breath, "A few days ago, he and I had a really bad fight. I said some really shitty things to him."
Merrick crossed his arms, feeling very embarrassed and irritated right now, "And now he won't talk to me. I tried apologizing, but he's still very hurt. And I don't blame him." He said.
"So here I go, I'm gonna try and make things right, with a song that relates to what used to be a main trial of our relationship. And Merrick..." Adam looks at the blonde head, just aching to see those blue eyes to turn, "I know I said some terrible things that I can never take back..." Merrick cast his eyes down, "... But please give me a chance to hold you again... I love you."
A fast-beat, cool-tempered rhythm started to play, the music of the song 'Your Heart' By Damian Dawn. Merrick turned around, and saw Adam had turn around, facing a large electric moon. After a pause, Adam's head lifted, "~Your heeeaaarrrrrtt!~" He sang
"Ahh~ Ahh~ Ahhh~Hhh"
"Ahh~ Ahh~ Ahhh~Hhh"
The back-up boys, Jordan and Kyle, sang in sync.
"~Oh yeaah~ Yeeeaaahh~ Yeeeah~~ Ohh~hh...~" Adam turned around, "Listen..."
"~So many niiights~ I watched you sleep~" He sung longingly.
"~watched you sleep~" Kyle hymned.
~"Tried to resiisst~ But it got so deep~"
"~got so deeeep~" Jordan hymned
"~And when you're next to me~" Adam reached his hand out in the air, "~You're still outta my reeeaach~" His fingers curled softly, "~But I just loonng for you~" He put his fist to his chest, before letting it down.
"~My soul is dark~" Adam sang, "~I seize the night~"
"~Seeeize the night~" Kyle hymned.
"~But you're the Angel~ That showed me the light~" Adam rose his hand up.
"~Showed me the light~" Jordan hymned.
"~I try to be strong~"
"~But I still long for~ Yoouuu~!"
"~I look into your heart~ And discooover myself~" Adam sang out, "~But I'll never be part of your woorrlld~!" Jordan and Kyle sang their voices just low enough to compliment Adam's voice, "~I need you~ Can't reach you~ We're worlds apaaarrt!~ If you need meee~ Look into your heeeaaarrt~"
"Wow," Jamal said as Adam performed, "I didn't know he could sing like dat."
"~You tame the beast~" Adam offered his other hand out as the other held the microphone, "~I bleeeed for you~" Adam pressed his fist onto his chest.
"~I bleed for you~" Kyle hymned.
"~You showed me love~ That's somethin' I never knew"
"~Neeever kneeew~" Jordan hymned
Adam bend forward a little, "~I'll take the blaaaame~" He opened his hand, and pressed his fingertips to his chest a couple of times, "~My liife's a shaaaame!~ But I still long for~ Yoooouuuuuu~!" Adam grooved his body up, and moved his open hand up as he sang the last word.
"~I look into your heart~ And discooover myseellf~" Adam chorused, "~But I'll never be part of your woorrlld ~I need you~ Can't reach you~ We're worlds apaaarrt!~ If you need meee~ Look into your heeeaaarrt~"
The music slowed down as part of the song. Merrick shook his head as his eyes watered again while he turned. Members of the crowd looked in despair as Merrick started to walk away.
It's too much. He just can't do this.
Adam's heart started to sink as he watched Merrick leave. His eyes glistened as a last shread of hope keeps him together, "~Pleeease wait for me...~"
Merrick came to a stop.
"~Please wait for him, booy~" Kyle sang lowly.
Merrick sniffled as his right foot took a slight move backward, his heart feeling a battle of emotions.
"~I'll never be...~" Adam continued.
Adam's chest pounds as he can see Merrick start to turn around. Even Queen Jizzelle was wrapped up, as if watching a very suspenseful moment in a romance movie.
"~Apart of your world~" Jordan sang.
Merrick turned around, his blue eyes once again in tears, giving Adam a hurt look, as if to say, 'Why should I? You hurt me.'
"~But I'm innn your heeaarrt~" Adam closed his eyes and tiled his head up a little, "~Forevveeerrrrrr~!"
Merrick turned around, and started striding to the stage.
"~I look into your heaaarrt, and discoovver myseeellf~" Adam saw Merrick coming in fast, people moving out of the way for him, "~And you'll always beee~ Apart of my woorrlld~!" Merrick is almost jogging back to him, "~I need you~ I'll reach you~ We're worlds part~!" Merrick is right at the stage, "~If you need me, look into your heeeaaaaarrrrrt~!"
As the music reached its climax, Adam bend down, and put his hand down, just as Merrick raised his. Their hands met, and gripped each other, and Adam smiles as he pulled Merrick right up on stage.
"~Look into your heart~ And discover myseellf~" Kyle sang as Adam locked Merrick into a full on hug.
"~And you'll always beee~ Apart of my woorrld~!" Jordan sang as the crowd cheered as the two men rocked a little from the hug.
"~I need you, I'll reach you~" Kyle sang.
"~I can reach you, babe~!" Jordan sang.
"~We're world's apart~" Kyle and Jordan sang at the same time.
Adam brought his microphone up to his lips, and sang one last time with Merrick in his arms, "~If you need me, look into your heeeeaaaarrrrrrt~"
The Dance Lobby broke in amazed and enchanted joy as Adam pushed his mouth against Merrick's, feeling his blonde lover gently stroke his face as held him close. So many feelings surge inside of Merrick as he stands there, but most importantly, he's feeling as if he can't stand to be without Adam for even one more second.
Adam broke the kiss, and nuzzled Merrick lovingly as they embraced. He dropped the microphone to hold Merrick tighter. "I missed you so much, baby..." Adam mumbled.
"I'm sorry, Adam..." Merrick cried carefully, "I'm so sor-"
"No, it's my fault, sweetie, it's ok..." Adam said as he hugged Merrick tighter, deafening out the noise of the audience, "I'm sorry, babe..."
