Aquata Cove

Chapter 71: Solemn Wish

Adam grunts as his wrists are tied in the lavender satin sashes, and bound to the upper corners of the bed. He blushes as he is completely naked, and his legs are spread apart on the bed, tied tightly as he is bound tightly, helpless as Merrick really makes the bonds tight so Adam can hardly move.

Merrick prowls onto the bed as Adam writhes a little, feeling somewhat embarrassed as his lover slides his body against the other, putting his hand on one side of Adam’s head as he mouths and nibbles on Adam’s lower face.

As it turns out, tulips seem to be a lot like catnip to Merrick – it’s been making him crazy horny ever since Easter. It hasn’t affected Arnaav in the slightest, either because he’s a preteen, but after calling and asking Syrinx if she’s bought any tulips – which she has – and she hasn’t felt any more aroused than usual. Tulips seem to only intoxicate Pisciens in particular. Merrick has been so randy at home, he can barely think. Yuri loves her some pretty flowers, and Merrick loves him some fat dick.

“Nnnhh” Adam feels aroused, but not sure if he likes not being able to move. Merrick really liked having his wrists tied together, and strung up while Adam fucked him from behind. His catch Merrick picking up an unfamiliar toy… It looks like a jockstrap with a removable pouch… And a dildo? “Babe, what’s that?”

“Your new undies~” Merrick answered. He pours lube over the plug before crawling into bed, and slide the slick toy under Adam’s butt.

“W-Wait, Merrick, lemme get- A-Ahh!” Adam felt his hole get spread open. His back arches as a thick intrusion pushes into his ass, “Ghhh!” Once partially in, Merrick took the straps attached to the dildo, and equipped it to Adam’s waist, and pelvic sides, pulling them, securing them, and thus pulling the toy up into Adam’s anus, making him whine and tense as Merrick fondled Adam’s displayed balls. He then took the small dial on the middle of the waistband, and turned it to VIBRATE, and pressed the button on top.

“OH! OHH!” Adam’s body jumbled as a mad buzzing kicks inside his ass! He writhes more as his ass clenches and struggles as the dildo inside him shakes with insane intensity.

Adam moans and squirms in his restraints as Merrick started to give full love bites on Adam’s cheek as his hands firmly felt on and around Adam’s body. Merrick growled before he latched his mouth onto Adam’s right nipple.

“Ooohh!” Adam gasped as his sensitive nub is chewed on. His back arches as he pulls his arms to no avail as Merrick slurped and pulled his nipple with his lips. Merrick moved to the other nipple to gnash his teeth against it. “Ahhh! OHhh! NNN!” Adam’s fists clench as Merrick’s teeth scratched down the middle of each pec and nibble on each tender nub.

“Ffffff,” Adam hisses as Merrick sucks on each nipple harshly and thoroughly, as if trying to draw milk, as his lips pushed down onto the nipple while digging the tip of his tongue on the erect tip, “Hhaaww, God,” Adam huffed as his dick stands erect while Merrick slurps on each nub, all while the vibrater still going nuts inside his ass. “C-Can you suck on my dick now?? Please?” Adam asked timidly, with a hint of desperation as his wang throbs.

“Mnngghh~” Merrick slurps off from the wet nipple, and takes a moment to lick Adam’s hairy chest, “Even better~” Merrick then pulls out what appears to be a ballgag. Adam eyes it as Merrick opens it up.

“Wait, when did you get tha-aallmmp!” Merrick clogs Adam’s mouth with the gag, and clicks it into place behind his head. Adam moans and huffs as his teeth push down on the rubber ball, his knees and elbows still pulling as his electrified rump pushes needingly on the bed.

Adam breathes heavily as Merrick pops open the bottle of lube. “HhhhMMMNNN~!” Adam moans as the cold slick dips on the summit of his throbbing member, a chill going up his spine as Merrick grabs his thick rod and finally giving it some much needed attention, while Merrick masturbates while fondling his lover.

“Nnnhhhh~” Adam moans with his tongue rubbing against the ball, before moaning more as Merrick starts to fondle his actual balls with all that lube. His hand rubs the lube all over Adam’s cock, and then cups those heavy nuts inside Adam’s sac. Adam’s fingers shake and push on his palms as Merrick roll his tender testicles around there, massaging his balls and warming them up very nicely.

“That feel nice~?” Merrick asked as he gently pulled Adam’s bag, and then mushed them carefully in his hand. Adam moans in delight as he looks at his balls feeling the hot grab and roll.

Merrick climbs over his tied lover, and squats down. He overs his ass over Adam’s rock solid cock, and pressed his crack down onto the top of Adam’s dick. Merrick rubs his bubble butt along that hard dong, until he felt it slide on his asshole. Merrick reaches in to hold Adam’s dick, and gasp as he felt the initial penetration. He puts both his hands onto Adam, and lowers himself down to sit down on Adam’s dick.

“MMMM~!” Adam moans out in his rubber ball as his cock is crushed by the wondrous softness of Merrick’s ass, his toes curling as Merrick pushes his butt down on that hairy patch, while his wrists pull on his satin sashes, but is still bound by such a silky fabric.

“Ohh fuck yeah~!” Merrick says as he pulls himself up and sits back down on Adam’s dick, and rocked his hips against the other. “FFFFFffff, oh God~!” Merrick slams his butt down again and clenches his ass full of dick, his own weapon oozing pre like a faucet as he fucks himself with Adam’s penis.

Adam can hardly move as his head thrashes side to side – with Merrick forcing his hot ass onto his lubed manhood over and over again, his ass is also being buzzed like an angry rattlesnake tail endlessly, and with each pull he tries with his arms, the futility feeds his overall arousal as his teeth clench on the rubber ball in his mouth.

The two men bounce on the bed as Merrick rides Adam up and down on the bed, growling and moaning as he bucks himself up and down on Adam. Merrick moans and gasps as he pushes his ass down and mushes his butt down as hard as he can on Adam’s crotch, before rocking his hips more, as if he literally needs more dick inside his ass.


“Mmmf! MMFF! MnnnNN!” Adam clenches his eyes shut as his chest inflates and deflates as his arms strained in pulling on his bonds.

“You gonna shoot, hun?” Merrick asked, panting from both the exertion and how very horny he is, “Are you going to blow in my ass~?” Merrick turns the level of vibration inside of Adam’s anus a few levels, and forces Adam’s pelvis to shoot up against him!

“MMMM! Mmff! Mhm!!” Adam nods his head quickly as his head pushes down on the pillow. Merrick sinks his butt down, and then starts to pull Adam’s cock up, and swallows it again. Adam whines loudly around the ball as his penis tingles madly inside Merrick’s ass

“Aw yeah~ FUCK yeah~” Merrick moans as he milks Adam’s cock into drive, his wet, soft insides feeling like a silky vacuum as his rear sucks and slurps down on his thick, manly cock over and over again.

“MnnFF! HHHNN! NNHHH!” Adam’s eyes clench as he feels his balls withdraw inside him, and felt a hot splurt from around Merrick’s lubed entrance as the first shoot overfills him.

“Awwww yeah~” Merrick moaned with delight as he feels the hot fluid flood into him and overflow. He pulls his ass up and out, rolling his eyes up as he feels Adam’s dick squirt another white splotch onto his crack.

Merrick rubs the cum from Adam’s dick around theirs, frotting their penises for a moment and using that spunk as a lotion as he jerks off while still sitting down on Adam’s loins, his butt dripping with a mixture of lube and semen.

Adam looks pitifully up at his boyfriend, now he’s spent, but the toy in his rump is still going berserk inside him! He whines as he squirms and pulls his bonds as Merrick gets himself off. Merrick goes to untie Adam’s ankles, but then strings up his legs to expose Adam’s strapped undercarriage. Adam closes his eyes and grunts as Merrick turns off the dildo, and practically yanks it out of him, along with the spandex straps from under, rendering Adam technically nude. Adam blushes harshly as he feels so helpless and exposed, still squirming with his arms bound down, and his legs held wide open for his predatory boyfriend.

“Mnnhhh~” Merrick strokes his dick as he comes up on Adam’s exposed asshole, all used and slickened with the lubed toy.

This won’t take long. Just that last moment to satisfy the ravenous merman for the last hump of the night. He puts the glans of his shaft to Adam’s loosened sphincter, and slides in with complete ease.

“Ohhh yeah~” Merrick moaned with pleasure as his cock pushes into Adam’s warm tunnel. “Oh~ Mnnh~” Merrick smoothly glides his hips back and forth, his lover’s sphincter having been systematically loosened and tenderized. Adam moans lovingly with his mouth full of rubber ball, his anus filled with Merrick’s nice, calm penis instead of the electric monster raging in there. Like someone who just ate a spicy chicken sandwich, and is now enjoying a soothing glass of cool liquid.

“Like that, stud~?” Merrick said. Adam moaned as he nodded, looking so sexy as submissive as he is in his binding state, “Oh God, you feel so good. By the depths, your ass…” Merrick rolls himself over and over again into Adam’s slick entrance.

“Mmmff… Mnnh~” Adam moans, and blushes as he feels his penis start to tingle again. He looks to see his balls roll up and down from each gentle shove given by his boyfriend. He’s so tired… But his ass is so susceptible, Merrick is turning him on all over again.

“Almost there~” Merrick puts his hands onto the bed’s headboard, and humps softly into Adam. He closes his eyes, and inhales sharply. “Nnnnhh yeah, fuck yeah…”

“Mmmf~ Nnhhh~ Mmmnnhh~”

“God, Adam, you’re being so fucking hot…” Merrick said as he looked at Adam, the brawny, hairy stud, mighty and bound tight, arranged in a very slutty position, so muscular with just a little flab on his stomach to hive him a cuddly appeal in his otherwise manly image.

“Mnn… Nnh~” Adam flexes his buttocks, and pulled a moan out of Merrick’s lips.

“Oh! Ooh!” Merrick tensed as his hips pivot on the spot, “Right there. Right thheerrre…” He moans as he rubs his sensitive flesh into Adam’s insides, before his whole body twitched and rough groans forced their way out of his mouth, “Ahh! NNnn! FFFFFFffuck!”

Adam moans as he feels Merrick gush deep inside him. His arms pull harder on his satin restraints, as his muscles feel so warm and tingly, but is still unable to move, even as his dick perks from the slight recovery.

“Hohh fuck…” Merrick groans as he pulls out, his cock and nuts feeling sore from all of the excitement – they’ve been fooling around for an hour since they went to shower.

Both men pant with exhaustion as Merrick untied Adam’s legs and released his arms, before settling down, together, naked, one of them sweaty, and the other satisfied.

“Fuck… That was hot…” Merrick moaned as he turned and cuddled to his boytoy. Adam grunts as he clicks open his Merrick’s ballgag, and set it aside, rolling his jaws a bit in relief.

“Ghah… Yeah… Heh…” Adam pants as he leaves the satin laces on his wrists and ankles, keeping on his back as he presses a button to turn on a remote controlled fan to blow on them. He rubs his tender penis a little, still feeling a sense of arousal, “God, I need to get more tulips… Maybe some poppers too… Kinda curious about trying Viagra at least once before I turn 60.”

“God, I don’t know what it is about those damn plants…” Merrick panted, “They turn me into some kinda sex freak…”

“Ahaha…” Adam chuckled weakly, “You’re still the cutest thing on two legs~” He rubbed a fingertip on Merrick’s nose lovingly. Merrick smiles and kissed his finger as he cuddled up to him. Merrick blushes as Adam’s hand glides down his back, and started to fondle Merrick’s wet anus, “God, I love how slutty you can get…”

“Nnnh~” Merrick whines as those fingers press on his taint.

“Like that, honey~?” Adam rubs on Merrick’s pink bud in circles, “Like playing with youe hole~?”

“A-Adam…” Merrick moans as he holds him tighter as he lets those fingers stimulate his pucker, “Ohhh~”

“Hehehe…” Adam gives mercy and gently cups one of those sumptuous buttcheeks, “God, you’re easy… I’m really am the luckiest guy in the world.” Adam mumbled.

“Mmn…” The merman smiles as he relishes the touch of his man, “I love you…” Merrick mumbled as he snuggles his face on Adam’s fuzzy chest like a pillow.

“I love you too…” Adam answered as he rubs his mate as they lay there, tired, with the room smelling musky and thick. He turns his head to the clock to read the time – 1:19AM. His heart shudders inside him as he looks at the ajar drawer of his nightstand with the lamp. Adam gulps as he thinks about what he has hidden inside there…

Adam looks back to the ceiling as Merrick nuzzles him deeply, before Adam’s lips give a single, silent movement.



Arnaav lies on his back, enveloped in his big blanket. He holds the beautiful jeweled butterfly he found in the Easter Park up above him. He smiles as it glints and sparkles in the moonlight. Adam says it’s a hairpin, that human females put them in their hair to accessorize themselves.

He rolls over onto his belly, still holding up the glamorous hair piece like one hold up to read a comic book, kicking his feet up as he just lays there, admiring it.

The boy brings it close to his face, and takes in the scent from the trinket. His face tingles as he can detect a pleasing smell, feeling his little chest pound again, just like at the park…

Arnaav puts the butterfly to his nose, and takes a deep sniff, and then exhales. He curls tighter in his bundle as the wondrous scent immediately brings up someone to his mind: that girl from the egg hunt. The scent is impeded in this barrette… A mixture of cherries, cleanliness, and divinity…

Arnaav smiles as he thinks about her, giggling quietly as he hugs the cute trinket to his bare chest as he thinks about hugging her instead, holding her hand, and curling up with her…

With these happy thoughts in mind, Arnaav snuggles up on the couch, his little body consumed in the big, fluffy blanket as he holds the butterfly closely as he hugs his Mochi.

---The Next Day---

“Hehehe!” The otter boy giggles as he splashes about in his bath.

“Yeah, there we go,” Yuri says as she scrubs Arnaav’s wet, furry back with a firm scrub brush. The glass shower can be converted into a bathtub by selecting and sealing the right glass slides.

“God, you are so much more cuter in your real form!” Yuri commented with a smile as she digs her hands firmly into Arnaav’s head with the fur-wash. Arnaav squeals with glee as he keeps his eyes clenched shut. He loves these ‘bathes’. His body feels so much more better every time Yuri gets done cleaning him.

Arnaav purrs as the rough bristles feels good on his little head while the soap bubbles in his pelt, and when the brush pushes down against his belly. He dives into the bath water for a moment before shooting up and shaking himself wildly, and grooming his own face, while Yuri takes the showerhead and cascades the water onto the boy. He aims his head into the pour, his little hands rinsing over and round the upper part of his body.

“Ok, that’s every inch~” Yuri scratched Arnaav’s cheekfur before reaching in, and unplugging the drain. She continued to rinse and spray Arnaav around with the showerhead until the water emptied into the drain. As usual, Arnaav struggles on his water-legs, and he wobbles as he holds onto the edge of the glass.

“Alright, hang tight…” Yuri takes a thick towel, and starts to quickly run the towel on and round the otter kid. She still can’t see just how or where Arnaav’s tail disappears to, but it vanishes all the same.

Once completely dry, save for his hair, Yuri wraps the towel around his shoulders to cover himself, and unseals the glass shower doors to let him out, “Right then. Lets get you dressed…”

Adam comes out just as Yuri and Arnaav emerge from the bathroom, wearing some formal clothing, taking deep breaths as he grooms himself a little.

“Go ahead and go in there,” Yuri told Arnaav.

“Ok.” The boy wanders into her bedroom, before Yuri turns to Adam.

“Damn, Adam, you look fantastic.” She said with a grin, “If you weren’t gay, I’d sooo go out with you.”

“Heh, thanks,” Adam said nervously, “And if I were straight, I’d rock your world.”

“Pff, yeah,” Yuri scoffed as she rolled her eyes, “Like you can afford me.”

“Ghahah” Adam snirked, and took a breath, “You’d do my grampa proud, anyway.”

“Ah, yes. I remember… First day we met.” Yuri said with a reminiscent smile, “He was such an old creeper.”

“The worst…” Adam smiled, “The new bedroom wasn’t even finished yet, and you came answering the roommate ad they wrote up for me.”

“And your grandpa tried to set me up with you not one minute after we said hello.” Yuri said, “Heck, he tried to get us to share your room.”

“Yeah…” Adam chuckles, “Talking like you were some exotic harem lover from a far away land, as a dowry for the prince of the Persia.”

“And you called for your granny, and she nearly ripped his ear off when she found out how perverted he was acting.”

“Hahahaha!” Adam laughs with her, “I remember she wouldn’t let him get more than 5 feet near you for the rest of the time they were there, and she handled all the agreements between you and them.”

“Damn right, he made me uncomfortable. Still does when he comes over and he still hints that he wants you to go out with me.”


“Hahaha, and then, when you moved in,” They walk to the living room, “We sat on this couch, watched our first movie together as roomies. Kung Fu Hustle, wasn’t it?”

“Oh God, you were so, Ahhh!” Yuri laughed as she held her head, “You actually ASKED me if I can teach you some of what they were saying! You honestly didn’t know the difference between Japanese and Chinese?”

“I was 17! I hardly knew anything back then!” Adam laughed, “It was an honest mistake! And what did you call me?”

“I called you a ‘Hito shusabetsu jakkasu’, and I believe I was kidding.” Yuri said as she crossed her arms.

“You tried to smother me with a pillow!” Adam said.

“Well what else am I supposed to do with a stupid jerk??” Yuri laughed.

“Yeah, and God forbid I hit you slightly, or you’d throw me across the house. You know, I thought you were bluffing about YOUR grandparents teaching you karate, until you broke the freaking coffee table.”

“Ok, it’s Jujutsu,” Yuri corrected, “And again, I was KIDDING. I didn’t know that table was as old as dirt.”

“It was antique, and my gramma threw a fit when she found out.”

They both laughed for a moment as they remember when Yuri demonstrated a fierce technique and ended up destroying a precious, old sentiment of the house.

“Ahahaha… God, 10 years...” Yuri sighed with her hands on her hips, and taking a moment to turn her head and look around the house’s walls and ceiling. So much has changed since she first arrived, “Going on 11… Has it been so long?”

“M-Mhm…” Adam nods, “Yuri… I’m so fuckin nervous, I don’t know what to do.”

Arnaav peers around the doorframe, wondering what’s taking Yuri so long.

“What’ve you got to be nervous about?” Yuri said, “Everything is going to be ok. No, better than ok, it’s going to be spectacular.”

“I still don’t know…” Adam said, “I-I feel like I can’t wait any more… I-I really… But it’s like… He’s waiting for nothing. Really, to him, we’ve got everything we need. What I want… Seems pointless, a-a-and I,” Adam stammered as he held back a sob, “I want this so bad, and I can’t stand that he-”

“Hey now, come on,” Yuri pushed her finger to push up Adam’s chin, “I don’t think it’s pointless, and neither will he.” She said, “He’s human enough to know this is a big deal, especially if it’s clear that it means a lot to you.”

“But Yuri, I-”

“Adam.” Yuri said, “He let you down only once before.” She said, sparking a look of hurt and attention in those brown eyes looking at her, “What makes you so sure he’s going to let himself do it again?” Adam’s eyes watered as he sniffled, before wiping his eyes, “Hey,” She put a gentle hand onto Adam’s face, “You’ve waited long enough.”

Adam choked as he smiled, “You always know what to say”

The clock chimes 3:00, turning both their heads. Yuri looks, and turns back to him. “It’s 3 on the dot. He’s getting off in a while.” Yuri said softly as she straightened his jacket, “You better get moving” She hugs Adam for a moment, and he hugs her back.

“I’ll see you there…” Adam parted the hug, and turned to get his helmet.

Yuri smiles as she watches him leave, before she turns to see Arnaav, still wrapped in his towel, “Yuri?” His innocent eyes look up at her curiously, “What’s going on?”

She chuckled, and walked to him to her room, “It’s kinda complicated… I’ll explain later, but we need to get dressed first.”


Adam’s motorcycle roars down the scenic route with the wall of trees to his right, and mighty rocks overseeing the ocean to his left. His eyes glance up to see Jamal walking along the rocks with Sally on her leash. He waves to Adam as his motorcycle slows down, until it rumbled to a stop next to him. Adam pulls off his helmet, and gets off for a sec.

“Hey, man,” Jamal greeted.

“H-Hi…” Adam responded.

“You ready to do this?” Jamal asked.

“No clue… I just…  Agh…” Adam shook his head, “I honestly feel I’m about to keel over…”

“Aight.” Jamal took a moment to cross his arms, “Lemme ask ya somethin, been on mah mind couple a times.” He said, “On the gay cruise, you told me you weren’t sho what you feelin for Merrick was real or not, right?”

“Something like that…” Adam said, “I said I’m not sure if I really love him, or if something’s MAKING me love him…”

“Uh-huh.” Jamal then pats his fist at Adam’s chest, “Ya feel that? Like you gonna have a heart attack any moment?”

“M-Mhm…” Adam nods.

“That feel fake to you?” Jamal asked.

“I… I-It’s a bit more complex than that-”

“No, it aint’.” Jamal said, “That right there.” Jamal pokes his finger at Adam’s leather-clad chest, “That’s all you man.” Adam chuckled and scoffed a little, “You guys do anything fo each other, aight?” He pointed to him, “So I don’t wanna hear you bitchin about feeling like ya might not actually like him.”


“I know, because I used to feel like that, back when I had Cheryl.” Jamal said solemnly, “No matta how it turns out, you better know that it’s all real. Aight?”

“Ok…” Adam nods, and gives Jamal’s shoulder a firm squeeze, “Thank you, buddy.”

“No problem, mah brutha.” Jamal grinned. Adam chuckled as his eyes rimmed with moisture again, before they pull in for a manly hug.

“You better come, ok?” Adam said as he mounted his motorcycle again.

“C’mon, man, who you talkin to??” Jamal holds his arms open as he walks backward, “Ah ALWAYS come!”

Adam snickered harshly as his helmet mushed onto his head, before his motor sparked into life, and he was on his way again.

“C’mon, Salls.” Jamal said he had his dog trot beside him.


Captain grunts as he turns the hatch of one of his tank-carts, and slides it open. Once that’s done, he takes one of the thick, wide hoses, and seals it to the tank, and switches the mechanism on. With a hum of the machine, the hose channels a gush of sea water into the empty tank, quickly filling up the glass box.

Harold walks in, having just gotten clocked into work after he and Belinda arrived for an unusual visit to their Winter home. He adjusts his Fish House cap, and pulled at the straps of his overalls, when he sees his salty, old boss filling up a tank.

“Captain? What’re you doing? I thought we weren’t using the tanks because of today.”

“We ain’t.” The Captain growled.

“Theeennn why are you filling that one up?”

“For taday, I think… I can’t remember shit these days…” He said.

“I REALLY hope you’re not going to pull something today,” Harold said, “This is really important. God, I’ll never forget what you did with me when I-”

“That was a fuckin accident, and you know it, goddammit!” Captain responded, “Now mind yer business, Fish Boy, before I overflow this damn thing.” Herald takes a deep breath, and sighs as he walks away. Can’t argue with the boss, right?


“Mmff!” Arnaav irks uncomfortably as he tugs at the small polo shirt Yuri is having him wear, “Why do I have to keep wearing these things??

“Because you look absolutely handsome!” Yuri answered.

“That is not what I was asking.” Arnaav said with a look of disapproval.

“Haha, you remind me of Merrick when he first came here. He hated wearing clothes too.”

“Can you blame him?! I can’t see how you humans cans stand it.” Arnaav grumbled.

“Look, I just want you look nice for today. Afterwards, you can take your shirt off,” She gave a stern finger, “But that’s IT. Ok?”

“Fine.” Arnaav continues to wince as they leave Yuri’s room.

Skyler races across the floor, and climbs right up halfway the screen door, clung onto the spot, before the tiny kitten hops down and jets across again. Skyler launches his way straight at Roxas, before the kitten jumps at the last second, and dashed right away again.

“Could you tell Skyler to settle down?” Yuri said with a laugh.

“What do you mean?” Arnaav asked.

“I- Ah, never mind. Lets go.” Yuri said as they went out the door, just as Jamal meets them with Sally. “Agh, THERE you are!” Yuri said, “Hurry up and get ready, you’re gonna be late!”

“Quit nagging gurl I know it! Look.” Jamal retorted as he opened his coat, showing her a proper outfit, preserved despite the walk with his dog. Yuri raised her eyebrows as she looked him over.

“Wow. I’m impressed.” She said, “Good job this time.” Jamal disconnected Sally, and came up to them.

“Yeah, well.” He smirked, “Maybe you finally starting to rub off on me, huh?”

“And I didn’t need a single finger to rub you at all.” She said, “Forget I freaking said that.”

“PFFF! Heheheeee!” Jamal laughed as he got his keys.

“Dammit…” Yuri growled, “Not letting that one go easily, are you?”

“Not fo a while!” Jamal said after locking the door.

“Just my luck.”


“I swear, everytime I walk into the house,” Merrick says, at the clerk desk of the Lovers store still in his uniform, “Those damn flowers get me all riled up! I almost get a boner not 2 minutes after I walk in the door.”

“No way, man.” Nick grinned.

“Is there a condition fo that?” Sasha asked as they stand around the clerk table.

“It’s not like I’m allergic.” Merrick dismissed, “It helps when I open all of the windows of the house so it won’t be so concentrated. But it’s getting to a point where I feel too embarrassed to go home, and Yuri just brought a couple of dozen more tulips home. It’s like when a red moon is up, and I can’t keep my hands off Adam- Hell, I don’t even think Jamal is safe!”

“Go ‘head, it’s cool man.” Nick shrugged, “Guy needs some white chocolate SOMETIMES, yeah?” He snickered.

“That’s not the point, Nick.” Merrick said with an annoyed expression, “I’m not as loose as you – in every meaning of the word.”

“Honey you wish~” Nick licks his finger, and makes a hissing sound when he pokes his hip.

“Oh, just put bag of ice in yo nickas,” Sasha said, “That should cool you off.”

“Won’t work, I tried. My mother is from the far North, ice doesn’t effect me much at all.”

“So she like an ice mermaid?” Sasha said.

“Pretty much. Which means I can run around naked in the middle of a tundra, and still be wanting Adam to bang me over a glacier. Which reminds me…” Merrick picks up a package with a cyan blue C-String with white, fluffy feathers on it, and several bottles of flavored lube, along with a prostate milker labeled ‘Pulsator Stronic, “I need to add these to my tab.”

Both Sasha and Nick laugh as Merrick brings out his debit card, snickering as Nick types in the employee purchase.

-Kunk kunk kunk-

“Hm?” The look to see Adam standing outside, holding a small bouquet of white lilies and lite blue roses, while wearing some very snazzy clothing.

“Oh, look aht that.” Sasha grinned, “Looks like yoh boytoy is taking you out on a hot date~”

“Awwmy gosh, that’s great~” Merrick smiled, “I’m really getting hungry too. I better go change.”

“I’ll hold on to your stuff till later.” Nick said as he bagged Merrick’s merchandise, “See ya at the Waltz tonight?”

“Oh would you? That would awesome!” Merrick went to the back to change out of his uniform.

Merrick smiles as he pushes out the EMPLOYEES ONLY door, and grinned as he saw Adam in the shop. “H-Hi babe.” Adam greeted.

“Hi, stud!” Merrick trotted up to him and hugged Adam tightly. They parted, and Adam held out the flowers to him. “Oh my gosh, are these for me?”

“No, snaptrap,” Sasha said, “They’re fo me dear departed mum. Who ELSE would they be foh?”

“Eheheh…” Adam chuckled as his boyfriend accepted the flowers.

“Finally, some flowers that WON’T make me want to screw you silly, huh?” Merrick jested.

“M-Merrick!” Adam blushed harshly before Merrick kissed his cheek.

“C’mon, babe, lets go.” Merrick took Adam’s arm, and walked out the erotic shop. Adam glanced back, and saw Nick signaling Sasha to go. “Ok! Where to, Adam? Wanna go do some karaoke at King Bar? I’ll buy the first round. Or maybe we can check out some other gay bar, I’ve been wanting to see what Rage is like.”

“A-Actually,” Adam interrupted, “W-We need to go to the docks…”

“The docks?” Merrick asked. He shrugged and nodded, “Sure, sounds good.”

It was a short ride on Adam’s motorcycle from Lovers to the Kele-Kolika Pier, where they parked outside of the docks. Adam’s heart is going a mile a minute as he locked his ride, and hid his helmet at in the pouch.

“Wow,” Merrick remarked as he observed some of the white and lite blue balloons around here and there, “Must be some kind of party going on.”

“Y-Yeah… Merrick?” Adam said, turning to his one true love.

“Yes?” He seems so unaware…

“We need to talk…” Adam said.

“About what?” Merrick stepped around the motorcycle, “What’s wrong?”

“N-Nothing, i-it’s ok…”

“Adam…” Merrick took a closer look to his lover, “You’re shaking… Is everything alright?”

“Y-Yes, yeah, everything’s fine… I just… Well, come on…” Adam took Merrick’s hand, and walked him out of the parking structure, and under the copper seahorse gateway.

“Merrick.” Adam said as they walked, holding hands, and into the festive-looking docks, “We have been through so much together…”

“Yes… We have.” Merrick nodded, smiling as they walked in the sunset light.

“I moved here from Washington almost a decade ago.” He said, “I just turned 17, single and unaware of the future…” Adam takes another of many deep breaths, “Remember how this all started? Every moment? Every minute? Ever since we first started going out?”

“Heh,” Merrick chuckled as they walked, “I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘Going out’. I was so scared of you, of what you might do to me.”

“And then you saved my life…” Adam said with a smile. Merrick nodded as he kissed Adam’s cheek.

“Who knows what would have happened if I didn’t?” Merrick said, “I think that sometimes, and I…”

“Merrick… I’m sorry, for what happened because of me,” Adam said, “You chose me instead of your future, and you lost everything, because of me.” Adam’s eyes watered as he held back an emotional choke.

“I’ve put the past behind me, Adam,” Merrick said as he hand tightened around Adam’s, “I told you…”

“But you were supposed to succeed your Dad… You had your whole life planned ahead of you,” Adam sniffled as they went, “And you had a family, you had people who looked up to you, you had friends, and a life goal, and I took all of that away from you without even knowing it-”

“What happened that day was not your fault.” Merrick said, he looked and gasped lightly, “A-Adam! You’re crying…”

“I-I’m ok, Merrick, I-”

“No, something is wrong.” They stopped walking, and he stepped in front of him. “Adam, what’s going on?”

“I’m fine, Merrick, I’m ok.”

“Adam, it’s ok. I’ve told you before,” Merrick tenderly stroked his cheek, “If saving your life was a mistake, I’m glad I did it. And if I could go back and do things differently, I would go back, and do the exact same thing over again. And again, and again. Because no life for me, no matter what it is or what it brings me, it would never be meaningful if it meant you are not in my life.”

Adam sobbed a little as a tear rolled from his brown eyes, “E-Even though you were kidnapped and tortured because of what you are… You could’ve avoided all that hell if you just let me die all those years ago.” Adam’s breathing is becoming difficult, “Even now when I think about it, all I can think about is that it’s somehow my fault that you suffered for a whole month. If you knew that was going to happen to you, would you still have saved m-”

“Adam, don’t say that!” Merrick hushed, “I love you, Adam. And if being with you meant that I would have to go through hell and back, I’d do it ten-fold.” Adam huffed with sadness as he covered his eyes. “And thanks to you, my whole world opened up. You’ve shown me things I’ve never would’ve known in my old life.” Merrick rubbed his hand onto Adam’s cheek, “You’ve made me feel so many things that I never would have imagined. You’ve given me so much, Adam.”

Merrick nudged Adam’s chin up, “Now tell me what’s wrong.”

“N-Nothing’s wrong, Merrick, I’m just… I need to ask you something. I-I need you to give me something now… I really, really need something from you, and I’m afraid that you won’t…”

“Adam. What do you mean?” Merrick asked, confused by Adam’s rising anxiety, “What are you so afraid of?”

“The thing is… Merrick I need to ask you something from you,” Adam took both of Merrick’s hands with his, “I have wanted this for so long. I have wanted this longer than you can think, and I have always wanted to ask you. T-The only reason why I never asked this of you is because… Where you come from, what we have is all you want… But you know my kind of people,” Adam took a moment to wipe his eyes, “I want something more for you and me…”

“Adam, please…” Merrick said, feeling emotional himself to see so much tears coming from his mate, “Please, just tell me… I’m part of your world now. Just tell me what you need, and I’ll give it to you.”

“Merrick…” Adam held their hands up a little, “We’ve been through so much together. You’ve protected me just as I’ve protected you. I can never imagine what my life would be like if you never stumbled into my world. Despite all of the hurt and the trials we’ve suffered through together, I want to stand beside you until the end of time itself, and hold your hand through whatever else we’ll have to deal with.”

Adam sniffles and tries to control his breathing, “You’ve made me the happiest human alive ever since that one night under the Lunar Eclipse. The first time we laid eyes on each other, I promised myself to you before I even talked to you.”

“Adam, what are you saying?” Merrick’s heart begins to pound. Adam is really making his nervous now. Why is he crying so much? Is he sad or happy? He honestly can’t tell. Merrick takes a moment to notice that a lot of people are around at the moment, but that doesn’t matter right now. The more Adam talks, the more emotional he gets.

“Merrick, I’ve always told you, since the day we first met, that I will always wait for you. I will wait for you every six months if I can be with you even for just one day. I’ve always waited, and you’ve always come to me. I will always wait for you where ever you are,” Adam seems to be running himself breathless from all the talking.

“But just for this moment,” Adam continued with tears in his eyes, as his and Merrick’s hands were brought up, “Just for this one night, just for this once instance, just this once…” Adam trembles from head to foot as he kisses Merrick’s knuckles, “I can’t wait anymore… I-I really can’t hold it in for another minute… I couldn’t make myself stay as I am for another second even if I tried… I want this moment to stay in our hearts forever…”

“Adam, I-” Merrick breathes deeply with tremendous emotion as their hands lowered.

“Merrick…” Adam moves his left leg back, and lowered himself down and descended until his knee pressed on the old wood of the dock, with his right foot firmly planted down. Kneeling down before his boyfriend, Adam lets go of one of Merrick’s hands, and dug in his pocket.

“Oh Adam…” Merrick’s eyes watered as he sees Adam’s hand fish out a small, navy blue velvet box. He lets go of Merrick’s other hand, and puts his other hand on top of the box, “Oh my God, Adam…”

“Merrick Triton Piscien,” Adam opened the box to reveal a white satin-lined inside with a silver ring with diamonds welded into the band as a graceful curvy and swirly breeze. Merrick sobs as he sees the beautiful ring, twinkling in the low light, and then into Adam’s moist brown eyes.

“Will you marry me?” Adam managed to ask, still shaking madly as he looks up at his blonde wonder.

Merrick closed his eyes as he covers his mouth, unable to stop himself as he too weeps from the overwhelming impact of the moment. He has no clue whether it is his human side that causing him to become overwhelmed, or if he already knows how big this is. Truthfully, a part of Merrick’s mind knows this question, what Adam is asking for, is completely irrelevant.

But Adam really has waited for him – for as long as they’ve known each other, Adam has faithfully waited for all six moons at a time to see him as much as he could for the month the pod was going to be here. He held his hand when he was poisoned by the oil spill, and he waited as Atarah cured him. Goodness knows how long Adam has made himself wait for this very moment too.

He’s waited long enough.

“Yes, Adam Bryant.” Merrick nods as sparkling tears dripped from his eyes, “I will. I’ll marry you.”

“Oh my God, really?” Adam’s insides explode with unexpected joy and shock, “R-Really??” Merrick giggled with tears as he nods, “OhmyGod, baby!” Adam gets up from one knee, and hugs Merrick tightly.

Just then, everyone around them cheers out of nowhere. Merrick tries to ignore them as he clings onto Adam just as tightly.

Everyone who knows Adam, the local sweetheart of the docks, came just for this. Belinda and Harold clap in front of the Fish House, along with Beth from the candy store, the various owners of the nearby restaurants, along with almost all of Adam’s buddies from the Dream Waltz, including Jerry and Rajani and Chloe, the latter of which is rolling her eyes, and earning a nudge from her Indian girlfriend. As well as most of Merrick’s friends from Barns & Noble, especially with Yuri cheering for them with little Arnaav clapping from all the excitement. Next to them is Jamal right beside Nick and Sasha, happy to see them, beside with Syrinx and Kevin, having driven all the way down here to share this moment.

All of them all came to share in this moment for them to finally have taken this step in their relationship.

Adam pushes his eyes onto Merrick’s shoulder in a vain attempt to hide his crying, holding him so tight with one hand on Merrick’s back, and the other still holding the small box.

“I love you, Merrick.” Adam sobbed, with his voice muffled, “I love you. I love you so much.”

“I love you too, Adam… Thank you for…” Merrick shrugged as he chuckled in the hug, “Everything you’ve done for me…”

Looking up, Merrick now sees the majority of the dock they are standing on is decorated with light blue and white streamers, balloons, baubles, cloths, glittering materials, and so on. He let go of the hug and gasped as he sees everyone they know all around. And now, a few guys in tight tuxedo shorts walk in, bringing large platters of food.

“Adam, what IS all this??” He turned, looking endearingly into Adam’s wiped eyes, “Is this all for me? O-Or us?”

“M-Mhm,” Adam takes a couple of deep breaths as he wipes his tears again, “I-It’s an engagement party… I-I just, aheheh…”

“Adam, you humans and your, heh,” Merrick clings onto Adam again.

“STOP THIS BLASPHEMY!” Come the sound of a megaphone, “STOP THIS BLASPHEMY!”

Merrick gasped as he looked, and groaned in hurt as he sees a small group of people holding anti-gay sign and symbols of religion. Now fresh tears of anger and sadness start to form in his eyes.


“Oh god-fucking-dammit,” Chloe takes a few steps forward as she slouches with exasperation, “Would you sick people just MOVE THE FUCK ON ALREADY?!” Her shrill, angry voice carried across the docks.

“You ain’t invited, and we don’t want you here!” Jamal shouted, “Go on!”


“Oh, just fuck off already! I’m sick of hearing this shit!” Harold yelled.

“Just leave them alone already!” Yuri called out, “This is none of your business! When are you people going to learn that?!” She huffed as she pulled her phone out, “Screw this, I’m calling the police.”

“Hm?” Arnaav looked up at Yuri with concern, and then onto the scolding humans. They seem to be angry with Merrick, and his mate. Why, though? Merrick is the best, most trustworthy, generous person he knows – other than the other 3 humans he lives with. Adam is so nice and funny, and Merrick has never done anything to merit such hostility… So what has he done to make those humans over there so furious with the two of them?


“This has nothing to do with you!!” Belinda cried out with a shrill hiss, “Just begone! LEAVE!”

“You REALLY have nothing better to do than to keep bitching about this kind of thing?!” Kevin shouted.

“Just go! You’re ruining EVERYTHING!” Syrinx shouted. The party started to advance towards the small mob. They all shouted and ranted at them, turning into another mob – one that’s a little bigger than the one crashing the party.

Adam’s chest starts to feel hot and heavy, feeling surges of hatred at this sudden incursion on the very night he’s been waiting for what almost feels like his entire life. This was his night. HIS night. His time to propose the man he loves, in front of everyone who knows him as a beloved spirit, to help celebrate the beginning of bonding with his lover. And these people… He recognizes some of these people – he’s worked with them for years here on the docks… They can think of nothing else but to show up and tell him how wrong and evil he is just for wanting a chance everyone else is entitled to. They really want to go out of their way to ruin his perfect night?

Merrick grits his teeth as he sees all of this blind hatred. So much ignorance and refined savagery… Never in all of his life as a merman, has he seen such a display of barbaric arrogance and shameful disgrace – once again, this behavior is only seen in humans in comparison to any manner of merfolk he has ever met. These humans claim to know the will and mind of their God? And all the proof they have is in a book that has been proven time and time again to be nothing more than allegory that his been rewritten a thousand times over. He will never understand why so many humans cling to hate and hurt.

“MEN SHALT NOT LIE WITH ANOTHER MAN!” The pasture persisted.

Merrick whimpers with rage as he pressed against Adam, while Adam put his arms around his blonde mate, while Adam stared them all back, too furious to even speak right now.

“Oh Christ, I’m done with this,” Chloe takes off her earrings, and handed them to Rajani, “Hold on to these, sweetie, Mama’s gotta go make blood right now.”

“W-Wait! Chloe!” Rajani said, almost afraid to hold her back from her temper, while Chloe is already halfway there.

“I’m gonna shove that thing down his throat, see if he can talk after that.”

“IT IS,” The other zealots started to join in, “AN ABOMINA-”


“WHOA!” Chloe jumped back as a solid pillar shot out of nowhere, just inches away from hitting her! She quickly leapt back out of the way, as the burst silenced everyone. The beam hit DIRECTLY onto the protesters, and exploded on them in a powerful shower.

The religious mob cried out as a course of water pummeled and channeled all over them! Everyone jumbled back, wide-eyed as the group got doused and soaked with salt water. Merrick scoffed in astonishment as he covered his mouth. “Oh shit,” Adam raised his brows.

The religious haters sputtered as the ravenous splashing came to a stop, and everyone turned to hear the cigar-scratched, dried out cackling of the Captain, holding a huge hose-gun attached to one of his tanks, full of sea water.


“Alright, alright,” Captain said, “Baptism’s over, Reverend. Now git goin! Mass starts in 10 minutes.”

Dripping with the ocean, the pasture raised his megaphone, “SiR, we-” The megaphone buzzed and moaned weakly, prompting a few hard slaps, before bringing it back up, “SIR, WE HAve the riGHt to-” The sound circuit of the megaphone whistle weakly from his voice, “Gah, dang it,” He gritted his teeth as he banged the poor device against the dock post, pushing the switch a few times, before quickly giving up, and pulling out his bible, “We will not stand by, and-”


Another column of water shoots out and blows up all over the protestors, destroying their signs and posters, making them all stagger and yelp as cold seawater surges them for another 10 seconds.

“I got all night, Joey Smith!” Captain called, “Got TONS of Holy Water for ya!” He beckoned with his arm.

“We will not accept this!” A portly woman shouted out, “We must protect our-”

“Got some for you, Mrs Davis!” Captain unleashed the sea cannon again upon them, making the party goers cheer and laugh while the protestors shriek and choke on the liquid salt. “Yeeeaaahhh! Feelin all rectified and sanctified there?” Captain said, unheard by the roar of the water, and the screams and cheers from either side.

“If you pursue this futher,” The pastor panted, completely drenched, “We will- BULLLRRRGG!” Again, Captain blasts the hate away.

The religious mob gets driven back each time Captain hits them with a fresh cold shower. Every time they try to preach their nonsense, the old pirate boss just obliterate them with continuous bursts of ocean spray, Beth and a couple of other of the people followed them, and managed to lock a chain across the gateway of the pier, flapping her chubby little hand bye-bye as the rest of the crowd cheers their banishment.

Adam snickers as he looks at the sorry bunch of haters were cast out of the party. After a moment of the defeated people breaking up, he catches a rather lethal death glare from someone in particular. Jessica leers at Adam, with a look of hurt and betrayal as her makeup leaks and drips down. Adam can only cross his arms and give her a solemn shake of his head as she disappears…

“Weird enough, this wasn’t ruined at all.” Merrick said with that adorable smile of his. Adam grins lovingly as he brought up the velvet box again.

“Yeah… Just…” Adam smiles as he turns to look at the Captain, climbing down from the tank cart, and locking up the hose, “Everyone stood up for us…” Merrick smiles and wiped his eyes, “We were so lucky… They came to ruin everything, and our closest friends defended us.” He scoffed a little, “I… I don’t know what would’ve happened if it were just us…”

“We’re never alone, Adam,” Merrick smiled, “That’s the best thing about this… So many… Heh…” Merrick collects himself in a quick second.

“Speaking of which…” He opened the box, and took thing ring from the snug white satin, “I’ve waited so long to do this…” He takes Merrick’s left hand up, and slipped the ring onto his finger.

Merrick sniffled with glee as the delicate band of sterling silver and diamonds slid down onto his hand, “It’s beautiful…”

“I almost wanted to make it a match set with this…” Adam said as he carefully felt the angelic filigree key necklace around Merrick’s neck, still as stunning and sparkling as the night he and Merrick made up on the cruise, “But it looked so pretty as it was.”

“I love it…” Merrick huffed with emotion, before coming up to him, “O-Oh Adam!” Merrick threw his arms around him, and squeezed him tightly. Adam rubs his hand into Merrick’s blonde hair, and parted for a moment.

“Guess whooo!” Comes a familiar voice. Merrick turns and beams with delight as an older couple came eagerly up to them both.

“Oh my God, h-hi!”

Donna comes up to Merrick and hugged him tightly, “Oh my goodness, it’s so great to see you! Congratulations!” Merrick hugs her back, feeling very excited.

“About damn time!” Luther said as he slapped Adam’s back hard.

“Dad, oww!” Adam staggered as his back stung.

“Oh man-up, Son.” Luther jested.

“That’s what I tell him.” Chloe said with her arms crossed, “For a guy who does a lot of men, he doesn’t exactly do a lot of manning-up.”

“Oh, shut up, bitch.” Adam swats at her shoulder.

“Adam!” Donna yanked his ear back.

“OW! Mom, stop it!” Adam rubbed his ear.

“You really behave this way when we’re not around??” Donna scolded him.

“Mom, I’m 27 years old.” Adam said, “I-”

“He does. All the time.” Chloe said. Merrick snickered as Chloe starts off, “He calls me names, he hits me all the time for no reason.”

“Oh gracious, here we go.” Rajani rolls her eyes.

“He cusses me out whenever I look at him the wrong way…” She sniffles as she talks, “I-I’ve always wanted to be friends, but he…”

“Oh. My. God.” Adam blares as Chloe covers her face, “You are such a freakin-”

“I stood up for you!” Chloe shouted from her hands, “I was going to break those people for you! A-And even after you… Eemm… Even after you called me a…” Chloe sobbed convincingly, “A C-U-Next-Tuesday. Baawhhh!”

“I did not!” Adam exclaimed as he growls, “Mom! Dad, she’s throwing me under the bus!”

“All I ever wanted,” Chloe choked, “Was to be your best friend, A-Adam.”

“Ok, that’s enough.” Donna rolls her eyes as her hands placed on her hips, “I know a bad soap when I see one.”

“Yeah, no shit, Sherlock.” Chloe’s gears totally shift, tossing her hair back like a high school mean girl, leaving Donna’s mouth wide-open with shock at the sudden curse. Luther stood there, bug-eyed from this deceptively sweet/evil girl.

“SEE??” Adam points out, “I’m serious, she’s the one who picks a fight with ME!”

“Is this true, young lady?” Luther asked firmly, “Are you the one antagonizing my son?”

“Ok,” Chloe brushed him off, “I don’t have stand here, and let you accuse me of things that I CLEARLY do.” With that, she walks off.

“As usual, I am sorry for the loose canon she is.” Rajani said, before leaving, smiling after her girlfriend.

“Apple Cider?!” Chloe’s voice yelled out, “Are you freaking kidding me?! Where’s the freakin booze?! You’re such a pussy, it’s a shock I haven’t fucked you yet!”

Luther grabs his mouth as he doubles over with suppressed laughter. Adam did mention a mouthy lesbian coworker, but he never said she was hilarious.

“Right, never mind.” Donna pats Adam’s shoulder, “Give that bitch hell.”

“Got it.” Adam chuckled, “Got it all, Dad?” Adam whispered.

“Every bit,” Luther said with a nod.


“Wait, what?” Merrick said, “What do you mean?”

“I’ll show you later, sweetie,” Adam missed Merrick lovingly.

“Ok, bitches!” Chloe called out with the karaoke microphone, standing on a very small stage with a large white backdrop, where a white sheet, has been set-up and immulinated by white lights, before the small projectors below flashed up colorful, vivid special effects, all the while Harold just finishes setting up the music system, “Let’s rock it out!!” She snapped her fingers to the laptop, “Hit it.” Harold smiles as he moves the mousepad, and clicks the first song.

“~I don't know where you're going ~But do you got room for one more ~Troubled soul~” Chloe sang out as matching music rang out from the stereos, almost abruptly as per the song, but she managed to keep with it, “~I don't know where I'm going ~But I don't think I'm coming home ~And I said, I'll check iiinnn, tomorrow if I don't wake up deeeaaad~” The partiers clapped as the lights illuminate around her, “~This is the road to ruin ~And we're starting at the end~”

The music stopped, “~Say~yeah~!”

“Yeah!” The crowd cheers as the music booms back on.

“~Let's be alone togetheeerrr~!”


“~We could stay young foreveeerrr~!”


“Scream it from the top of your lungs, lungs, lungs~” Chloe pounder her chest twice, and punched the air once more, “~Say~Yeah~!”


“~Let's be alone togetheeerrr~!”


“~We can stay young foreveeerrr~!”


“~We'll stay young, young, young, young, young~”

The music rounded about, before Chloe spoke, “We’re all the pretty ladies tonight!!” She jokingly called, “Wave your arms with me, come on! Lemme see some girls in this sausage fest! Let’s go!”

“~Cut me off, I lost my track ~It's not my fault, I'm a maniac ~It's not funny anymore ~’No it's not… ~My heart is like a stallion ~They love it more when it's brokeeen~”  ~Do you wanna feel beautiful, do you wanna, yyy~eeaaah~”

Merrick giggles as his heart flutters with joy as he holds onto Adam’s arm. Something so unnecessary and fleeting, as he understands it, and yet… He glances at the sparkling ring, and feels a whole new wave excitement and happiness as he squeezes Adam’s arm.

“~I'm outside the door, invite me in ~So we can go back and play pretend~” Chloe waves her hand in gestures
I'm on deck, yeah I'm up next
Tonight I'm high as a private jet

'Cause I don't know where you're going,
But do you got room for one more troubled soul

“She may be a mad cow, but she is a decent singer.” Adam smirked, while they danced, “In all honesty, we kinda go back and forth when I work at the club.”

“You want an edge, Adam?” Donna asked, “I’m a trained psychiatrist, I can pinpoint her highest insecurities.”

“Nooo, Mooom.” Adam grinned as he rolled his eyes, “We’re cool. I’ll let you know, though.”

“~Let's be alone togetheeerrr~!” Chloe sang.


“~We could stay young foreveeerrr~!”


“Scream it from the top of your lungs, lungs, lungs~” Chloe pounder her chest twice, and punched the air once more, “~Say~Yeah~!”


“~Let's be alone togetheeerrr~!”


“~We can stay young foreveeerrr~!”


“~We'll stay young, young, young, young, young~”

The music rounded about again, and so Chloe spoke, “Heck of a party, Adam!” She smirked, “Notorious F.A.G. in DA HOOUUSE!” She deepened her voice with a laugh.

“How do you put up with her, Raj??” Merrick asked Rajani as they danced, “He’s kind of… I don’t know… You know?”

“Hahaha,” Rajani laughs, “I know, dat’s why I love her.” She said, “She’s a loose canon and she’s so spicy! I cahn’t get enough of her, even if I’m a little too mellow for her.”

“Hah! Yeah.” Adam snirked.

“What?” Rajani said, “I-I’m sorry, what?”

“Yeah, she may act all out-of-control,” Adam said as Chloe sang on, “She actually told me one time that she kinda counts on your demeanor.”

“Oh…” Rajani smiles as she brightens a little, looking up, and smiling up at her untamed girl.

“~I don't know where you're going, ~But do you got room for one more troubled soul ~I don't know where I'm going, ~But I don't think I'm coming home! ~And I saaaiiid, I'll check in tomorrow if I don't wake up deeeaaad ~This is the road to ruin and we're starting at the end~”

The song finishes, and the people cheer for her as she walks off the stage. The backdrop of the small stage blooms in light and color. A wave crashes into the sea as water and bubbles spiraled and channels until it forms a heavenly heart, with a picture of Adam and Merrick kissing from when they were on a Romance Dance on the LGBT Cruise – where Adam was wearing a suit, and Merrick is wearing a blue and violet sheen drape-robe. Golden letters sparkled first on the top, and then on the bottom.
