My Love is Your LoveRemy La Croix parked his snow mobile in front of Jackie’s Diner, cutting the engine. He smiled catching sight of the decorations in the windows, while getting off his machine, and tucking his helmet under his arm. Jackie always went over the top whenever a holiday came around, Valentine’s being no exception. Small metallic cupids graced the corner windows and hand-cut paper hearts lined the largest of the glass displays.”Hey Sheriff,” Le Roy called Remy out of his thoughts.”Le Roy what in the hell are you doing over here tonight? You aren’t sneaking out on that pretty little wife of yours are you?” Remy smirked, knowing full well Deputy Le Roy Hudson was as devoted to Georgia as the snow was to winter.Le Roy rolled his large brown eyes, tucking a stray gold hair under his hood, “Gia sent me for some of Jackie’s red velvet cake, said it wouldn’t be a good night for me without it. And I will be having a good night, you feel me?”Both men laughed hard, their breath smoking in the winter air. Remy giving the larger man a slap on the back, “Yeah I feel ya big guy.””You got any plans tonight? Is there a special someone waiting at home?” Le Roy elbowed Remy in the side with waggled brows. Remy kept his smile plastered on, hiding the slight tug of loneliness inside.”Nah, I wouldn’t be having dinner here if I had some hot guy waiting for me at home,” He winked, leading Le Roy out of the frigid outdoors and into the sweltering heat of the diner, with a chime of the front door.”Well I’ll keep my eyes peeled for ya…” Le Roy bellowed with a chuckle.”Thanks buddy, but I think I’ll do my own scouting,” Remy chuckled. No way in hell was he having his straight married deputy trying to find him a husband.Remy moved out the way for a couple trying to squeeze past them. The place was packed tonight, every red vinyl booth filled, and all the barstools taken by laughing, happy customers. He kept his frown from getting the best of him, grabbing a menu from the busy hostesses stand to look at take-out options.”Aw hell,” Le Roy muttered behind him, “Gia is gonna pitch a fit if she don’t get that damn cake. From the looks of it, we’ll be awhile.” He plopped into a small chair next to Remy with a grunt, causing an audible groan from the plastic under his much larger ass.Remy smiled, patting the big guy’s shoulder, “Jackie will put her daughter on the cake priority list for sure.””I hope so Remy, cause if she don’t…Well I don’t need to tell you…” Le Roy laid his massive body against the back of the chair in thought.The Sheriff gave his deputy a knowing smile, turning to focus on the scene before him. The chime of the bell on the front door, the smell of fresh coffee, and the chatter of hungry people made him feel a little less alone. That’s why he always ate at Jackie’s. It was warm, inviting, and better than eating another dinner for one in front of the television.He pulled his fur trimmed hood back when he caught sight of Jackie approaching. Her charcoal hair was tied up in a bun and her blue eyes sparkled like it was her sixteenth birthday. Jackie’s thick cable knit sweater was patterned with red hearts, making Remy smile. The woman always did know how to dress for the occasion.”How’s my handsome Sheriff this evening?” The petite woman perched onto her tip toes, giving the sheriff a kiss on the cheek.”I’m alright Miss J, how about yourself?” Remy’s green eyes smiled.”Oh my stars, tonight has been wonderful! Got this new k** working the back, and Lord is he a God send. Just came in yesterday looking for a job. I had no idea he was that good. Oh speaking of…” Jackie excitedly pulled a box from behind the hostess station.The pink dessert box was wrapped with a red taffeta bow and Jackie held it out to Le Roy, “Chris made it special for you guys.””Red velvet?” Le Roy eyed the box skeptically, knowing the consequences if it wasn’t.”Oh please c***d, like it would be anything else. Now take it and get, Gia isn’t gonna wait all night,” She shoved the box into his eager hands, giving him a kiss with a good squeeze around the waist.”Thanks Mama J. I owe you one.” Le Roy kissed her forehead, “Later boss.” He winked at Remy and moved out the door like the place was ablaze.”That boy…I swear…” Jackie shook her head with a smile. “Now where are we gonna put you?” Jackie peered around the diner, scouting for a free seat in which to put her favorite customer.”Nah, Miss J, it’s alright. I’ll just get something to go, place is too packed to sit anywhere,” Remy tried and was given a scowl.”Nonsense, I think I know where you can put that butt of yours,” She smiled, “Follow me…”With no other choice, as Miss J didn’t take no for an answer, Remy followed behind Jackie, nodding to folks he knew as he passed them. His brows went up as Jackie came to a stop in front of a booth. Sitting there was a man so engrossed over his phone, that he had not a care in the world that two people were standing there staring at him openly.Remy didn’t want him to look up either. He too was engrossed, but not over a phone. The man before him was as beautiful as they came. He was a little clean cut for Remy’s normal tastes, but he had something about him, that was just too good to look away. The stranger was slender, but not skinny, having obvious muscles working under his grey thermal tee. His hair was cut shorter, with a little length on top and shaded a sandy brown. Darker brows gave way to a profile of darker brown eyes, and Remy was lost at the sight before him.”Excuse me sir?” Jackie cooed in her smoothest tone. The man looked up with a start, shifting his eyes between the two of them.”Um yes?” He cleared his throat, placing the phone screen down onto the white plastic table.”I’m Jackie and this is Sheriff Remy La Croix,” Jackie gestured at Remy.”I’m sorry, am I in trouble or something?” He looked at Remy, obviously startled. His voice was like silk across Remy’s skin and he shifted to his other foot under the guy’s surprised gaze.”Oh heaven’s no c***d. I’m so sorry to bother you, but seeing as we have a full house and you have this big ole’ booth to yourself…Well I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing with the Sheriff here. He don’t bite, I promise,” Jackie smiled sweetly and the man looked Remy over once more.Remy stayed perfectly still as the man in the booth raked his gaze over his body. Did he like what he saw, Remy thought, God he hoped so.”Sure. That’s alright,” The stranger gestured to the seat across from him and Remy slid into the booth.”Well that was nice of you honey. Thanks for helping us out there,” Jackie gave the man a squeeze on the shoulder.”No problem.” The man smiled and Remy felt his dick harden under his jeans. Where was this coming from? Never had Remy La Croix been attracted to someone so suddenly in his entire life. Maybe it was that smile, with those pearly white teeth, and supple rosy lips that would look amazing wrapped around his….ah shit.Jackie winked at Remy and went to fetch his usual black coffee. “I’m Finn by the way,” The man offered a hand across the table.”Nice to meet you Finn,” Remy returned the hand with his own. A shiver stretched over his skin as they made contact for the first time. Finn’s hand was warm, with fingers that fit perfectly into Remy’s larger palm.”Sheriff huh? That’s sure to be a big job,” Finn smirked, checking his phone once more.”Not really, this is a small town and folks keep quiet most of the time,” Remy managed, his sweaty palms gripping his thighs. “Uh, so what do you do Finn?””Nothing at the moment, I just moved here from Chicago,” He replied never looking away from his device.”That’s quite a change. Why in the hell did you come to Bermont?” Remy leaned forward, his head starting to speculate the many possibilities to Finn’s true identity. As a cop, it was always in his experience that when people didn’t look you in the eye and offered evasive answers…something was not right.Finn looked up this time and Remy saw something close to sadness flicker behind those chocolate eyes. “My grandmother passed away a little over a month ago. She left me her cottage over on Green’s Road and I figured it was time for a change anyways. So here I am,” He murmured. Remy felt his heartstrings tugged.”I’m real sorry Finn. I didn’t mean to upset you.” Remy offered and Finn smiled slightly.”No, it’s okay. It’s just a little fresh that’s all. Maybe you knew her? Maiva Caldwell?””Ah she was your Gran Mama? That woman made the best lemon bars in the entire universe,” Remy smiled. “I used to take her to church when the snow got too bad. No way was she about to drive with her vision being like it was.””That was nice of you,” Finn was staring directly into Remy’s eyes. There was a connection here, Remy thought. A spine tingling one if you asked him.”It was nothing. She helped me out once in a while too. I mean that’s what small towns are for, helping each other out,” Remy drawled, trying to get past the duel pools of milk chocolate looking through him.Jackie chose that moment to place a cup of coffee in front of the Sherriff, bringing a refill for Finn, “You boys know what you want yet? Or do you need another minute?” She smiled, looking from Remy to Finn, with that meddling twinkle in her eye.”I’ll have the usual Miss J,” Remy grinned.”Boy, I swear to the heavens above…one day you will turn into a chicken pot pie,” Jackie laughed, clapping her paper pad against her thigh.”Is it that good?” Finn looked at Remy curiously, a killer smile gracing his lips.”Hell yea,” Remy grinned, wanting nothing more than to rub his self all over that grinning body.”I’ll have the same then, oh and thanks for the refill,” Finn nodded.”Nothing to it baby, I’ll be back in a jiff,” Jackie winked, disappearing swiftly into the crowd of people.The two men sat in silence for a few moments. Remy played with the edge of his napkin, twirling the ends between his fingers, and trying to come up with something to say. He glanced through his lashes, watching Finn play on his phone once more and feeling like he was more of a nuisance to the man than anything.”So, um what did you do back in Chicago?” Remy looked up, attempting to make the first move.Finn glanced at Remy with a distracted expression, “Sorry what?””Must be real important, whatever’s on there,” The Sheriff pointed to the phone, making Finn squirm.”Are you always this nosy?” Finn cocked a brow.~~~ In the Kitchen~~~”Orders up,” The newest cook shouted, pushing another jiffy ready meal through the window.Chris grinned at the dishwasher, who had been watching him all night long. Guess the guy had never seen real skills in the kitchen before. Chris shook his head and started mixing up batter in a large ceramic bowl. It had been a while since he’d graced one of these rural small towns with his presence, making his work tonight feel all the more special.’Chris’ as he was known during his day jobs, was not really all that met the eye. No, his curly blonde locks and big blue eyes had another identity entirely. He started to hum as set down the batter and started to stir a pot of chili on the burner, feeling those eyes on his back yet again.”Hey Don, why don’t you take ten, those dishes can wait a few minutes. Take a break man,” Chris called over his shoulder, already knowing about a beautiful red headed woman out back just waiting for company.”Uh, yeah…that sounds good,” Don replied gently, picking up a pack of smokes from the top shelf.Chris heard the other man walk towards the back, muttering ‘something strange about that guy’ under his breath. Don had no idea, Chris grinned. The blonde set to work again, snatching another paper slip from the window, and pulling two already made pot pies from the fridge, to set them in the preheated oven.He smiled as he closed his eyes, feeling for the people they belonged to. Images came to his head, and he chuckled as he found yet another perfect match. This is why he loved small towns. So much love in the air, it made his job real easy.~~~Finn~~~Finn was so nervous sitting across from the Sherriff. So much so, he felt the sweat building over his skin. In all his days, never had he seen a more beautiful man. Remy was taller, bigger, and more handsome than his normal taste, but there was something about him that pulled Finn to him.He concentrated on his phone to make his body calm a little, but the images on the screen were more upsetting than calming. Joel’s smiling face looked back at him, mocking Finn none too subtly. Next to his ex-boyfriend was Joel’s new fiancé Jacob, the Latin God he had met at the gym. The happy couple was pictured holding each other in front of a stunning tropical backdrop and Finn was on the verge of tears. He took a deep breath remembering that night.He was so excited, the candles were lit, and a soft jazz cd was on in the background. Finn fluffed another pillow and with a giggle straightened the silly little cupid centerpiece on the table. He had worked all day cooking and cleaning, so that when Joel got home he would be in for one hell of a surprise.Finn glanced at the clock, biting his lip because Joel would be home any minute. He looked in the mirror one more time and chuckled. The little cupid outfit that he had bought at the sex shop downtown looked good on his slight figure, the small loin cloth fitting perfectly, and hanging sensually off his hips. Finn adjusted the little wings on his back and rubbed in some more oil over his chest. Joel would not be able to resist him. It had been a while since they had been together and Finn was almost to the point of begging, but he had a feeling that tonight Joel would be more than up for it.He gasped in delight as keys could be heard in the lock and the door opened. Finn raised a brow from his hiding spot behind the corner as Joel left his coat on and looked from side to side before shutting the door. Joel always took his coat off and tossed his keys on the side table when he got home. Finn also noticed, furrowing his brow, that Joel wasn’t wearing his usual scrubs. Joel was always so tired after wor,k that he never even bothered changing before he left the hospital.His suspicious thoughts continued as Joel walked over to the set up table and groaned, shaking his head, and blowing out the candles. Finn’s heart started to race and he wanted to just cry right there. Joel wasn’t even going to give him a chance tonight, leaving him high and dry once again. A tear slipped down his cheek as he saw his boyfriend go to the front coat closet and pull out a rolling suitcase.Finn couldn’t take it anymore, something was wrong, very wrong, “Joel?” He stepped out from the shelter of the wall, forgetting about his sultry outfit.Joel’s eyes widened, looking him up and down, before sighing and clutching the suitcase closer to his person, “I was going to leave you a voicemail. I had hoped to avoid all of this,” His tone was flat and dry.”Avoid what exactly?” Finn quivered and sucked in a sharp breath.”Just listen to me Finn,” Joel rubbed his face with his free hand, “Things between us aren’t great. You and I both know that and it’s come to the point where we’re drifting apart, going our separate ways.””Joel you can’t be serious. I try to be with you every night and you’re too tired or not up for it or some other excuse. As for going separate ways, what are you talking about? I always do what you want to do or hang out with your friends. I support your career, I moved in with you, and now I don’t understand where this is coming from,” Finn started to cry. Joel made no move to comfort him.”Maybe what I should have said is that I’m going down a different road, a road that doesn’t include you,” Joel looked him straight on, his voice even, void of emotion. Finn’s mouth gaped open, his eyes were wet, and he sputtered for a response. Joel was leaving him.”I’ve met someone else and it feels right. I’m sorry about all this Finn, but I just can’t live a lie anymore, I love him and I have for some time now. I wish that you wouldn’t have been here, so this would’ve been easier on both of us, but what’s done is done. I wish you the best Finn, I really do.” He started towards the door; the sound of his suitcase against the hardwood was like a knife ripping into Finn’s gut.”Why?” Finn sobbed.”Because he’s who I’m meant to be with. You should really focus on finding someone who loves you like he loves me,” Joel flicked his green eyes to Finn one last time, “My sister will be here on Tuesday to grab my things and give you the key.” Joel looked over the condo one more time, “Good bye Finn.”With that, he rolled his suitcase out the door and shut it behind him. Finn couldn’t speak, move, or think, he was in shock. The numb feeling waned and the anger rose. Finn wiped his tears on the back of his hand and ripped the wings from his back with a scream. He continued by throwing everything on the beautifully set table across the room, reveling in the shatter of glass, and the ruins of his cooking.He came upon the silly cupid centerpiece and spent the next hour, ripping it into teeny tiny pieces.Finn shivered and irritably glanced at the familiar cupid that was taped to the wall next to him. It had all become too much after that night, living in the big city, and being so alone with only his sick Mother to provide him with any encouragement. So when the lawyer had produced Gran’s will to Finn, granting him full ownership of the cottage, he jumped at the chance for a new life. Now here he sat, in a room full of happy couples, on the day he hated the most, mourning all over again.A mumble came from the man across from him, startling him from his darkened thoughts, “Sorry what?””Must be real important, whatever’s on there,” Remy pointed to his phone.”Are you always this nosy?” Finn shot back, trying to hide his overwhelming urge to confess his depression to this stranger, too anyone.”I’m a cop. It’s what I do…” Remy chuckled, obviously not deterred by Finn’s blatant attitude.Finn studied the man before him, taking in the clear green eyes, and dark stubble around his jaw. Remy’s messy black hair ran to his chin in a rugged back woods male kind of way, and it suited him, furthering Finn’s strange attraction to the man. Finn couldn’t help but run his eyes over full lips as they parted, taking in a sip of coffee. The Sheriff’s tongue darted out and wet his bottom lip, placing his cup back on the table.This man was sex personified, and Finn shifted in his seat, discretely adjusting his bulge. He hadn’t been in this town five minutes, and here he was lusting after the town’s lone ranger, who was most likely straight and had a hot girlfriend waiting for him at home. Then again, why would an attached man be out dining solo on Valentine’s Day?”Right,” Finn finally replied, noticing the grin on Remy’s face. Was he gay, or was he just being nice, Finn wondered.”You hear about the storm coming in tonight?” Remy asked casually and Finn watched his lips move once more.”Uh huh,” He managed then cleared his throat, averting his eyes to his own coffee, not knowing anything about a storm.”Gonna be something brutal. You got the heat turned up in that place yet? Don’t want you to freeze on your first night here,” The Sheriff replied.”How did you know this was my first night?” Finn asked curiously.”For starters, if it wasn’t, you’d be wearing something a little warmer,” Remy gestured to the leather jacket next to Finn, “Secondly, no one who has been to Jackie’s more than once wears a frown like that. Lastly, I noticed all the folks looking and whispering your way, meaning their curious. You don’t last twenty four hours without playing twenty questions with the locals. If they knew ya, they wouldn’t be so interested.”? part 2 ?”Makes sense I guess,” Finn looked around, finally noticing the stares and muted conversations directed his way.”So why the frown, you look like someone rained inside your living room,” Remy studied him.Finn could blame it on his Gran’s passing, but they would find out the truth eventually. This was a small town after all. What could it hurt to tell?Finn took a deep breath, “It’s just one of those days I try not to remember.””How in the world is Valentine’s a bad day? I mean look around you…all these people smiling and having a good time. I only wish I had someone to share it with like that,” Remy had a far off look in his eye that made Finn feel like sighing.”Well for some of us, it’s rotten. Nothing more than a Hallmark nightmare,” Finn countered, causing Remy to frown.”Oh come on. Don’t you feel the love?” Remy teased, taking a sip of his coffee.Dreamboat was starting to irritate Finn. Why did everyone just love this damned day?”When you spent all day cooking a meal for your boyfriend, only to have him come home, and break it off with you for another guy, it kind of ruins it,” Finn blurted and sat back in awe that he had really just said that.Remy slowed his smile, setting down his coffee, with pity looming behind his eyes.”I guess it would huh?” The big man murmured, looking down at the table, “I’m sorry Finn. I didn’t mean to make ya angry.”Remy looked like a sad puppy while he fidgeted with the napkin again. Never once did he mention the fact that Finn’s ex had been a ‘he’. That was a start, Finn thought…at least the guy wasn’t a homophobe.”So you see, I have no fondness for this day, nor will I the next year. You can dangle the little hearts and roses in my face all you want, but it won’t change my opinion on the matter,” Finn sat back in the booth, crossing his arms.He felt like a complete ass guarding himself from Remy, but he had no idea what this man’s intentions or status was, so he kept up the dwindling front. Normally, Finn was an easy going and caring individual, but today brought out the worst in him, and he felt pity that Remy had to endure his dark side.”Hey man, it’s alright, I completely understand. You’ve had a rough go of it, what with your Gran and an ex to boot. That’s rough. I wouldn’t care for today either if I were you,” Remy smiled gently.If Finn was standing, his knees would have given out over the lopsided grin from the man across the way. He understood? That was a first. Normally people thought him a crazy person for hating the holiday of love, but Remy wasn’t normal he guessed. Finn could already tell Remy cared for others; he loved his town, and had a way of making Finn’s cock throb. He wished Remy were gay with all his heart, because he was already perfect to Finn.Wait! Perfect? Where did that come from? Finn felt like he was tripping acid, feeling anything more than curiosity was insane.”Uh thanks. So about this storm…” Finn tried to change the subject away from his frigid love life.”Oh yeah, we’re supposed to be getting a hell of a blizzard tonight. Wouldn’t be surprised if I’m on dig out detail tomorrow,” Remy laughed easily, putting Finn into a calmer state.”Dig out detail?” Finn chuckled.”Yeah, we go around and check to make sure folks aren’t stuck inside their own homes. Sometimes the snow piles up so fierce, you gotta dig em out.””Holy shit,” Finn muttered, blushing at his own exclamation. “Sorry, I meant that’s crazy.””No worries city boy. We do tend to swear out here now and again,” Remy grinned wildly.”I’m a city boy huh?” Finn bit his lip for a second. “Well maybe you’re right on that one. I mean I know about snow, but not like this. Oh hell, what if I get snowed in?” He started to panic at the thought.”Calm down, if you like I can make sure your place is set up, before you turn in for the night,” Remy replied, nervously tapping against the side of his mug.”Um…”Finn wasn’t sure what to say. Actually it was more like he didn’t know what he would do with the sexy Sheriff in his house, “Sure.”Finn raised his dark brows at his own reply. Oh great, if he wasn’t nervous and aroused before…”Yeah?” Remy looked up for some kind of reassurance. Finn was surprised to see Remy looking as nervous as he felt.Jackie swept towards them, holding two steaming plates of pot pie in her hands, “Here we are boys. Best pot pie in the whole damn world.” She winked and blew a stray hair from her face.Finn took one whiff of his plate and felt like he had found home. Without waiting for Remy to dig in, he picked up his fork, breaking open the crisp golden crust. A delicious aroma hit his nose and he shuddered, narrowing his eyes in hunger, not at his food, but at the Sheriff.~~~In the Kitchen~~~Chris pulled a batch of gooey brownies from the oven and Don was in the corner with a dreamy smile on his face, a smear of pink lipstick on his cheek. The golden blonde took the tray over to the free counter space to let the sweets cool.Don stopped what he was doing, sniffing the air in Chris’ direction, “Damn that smells good.””You want one?” Chris turned with a cheeky smile. “I bet we could set Kara one aside too.””Ah man. Kara deserves a whole plate of those brownies,” Don sighed.”Oh really?” Chris beamed, “I bet I could arrange that. You guys could take a batch home after work.”After planting the spark in the couple’s thoughts, the food sealed the deal. Chris was not one to mess with fate, never starting something that wasn’t already there. The couples were always meant to be, they just needed a little push towards each other. Soul mates deserved to be found, and Chris was always happy to help.”You think she would take me home?” Don gaped, but excitement was in his dark eyes.”Take her a dozen of these and I have no doubt my friend,” The cook returned.”Ah thanks man, I owe you one,” Don smiled and started humming along with the radio, going back to the dishes.”You don’t owe me a thing,” Chris whispered, piling the brownies into a pink box.He could feel a strong connection taking place in the dining area and grinned, Gods he loved his job.~~~Remy~~~Remy watched Jackie leave the table, turning back to see Finn staring at him. The man’s dark eyes were heated and full of hunger. Remy had to clear his throat, shift in his seat, and take a sip of coffee to avoid looking back into those dangerous eyes. His stomach beckoned for the food before him, so he broke open the delicious pie.The second the smell reached his nostrils, he was a goner. The aroma did something to his body that he had never felt before. Remy’s eyes shifted towards Finn, r****g the city boy’s very soul to the core with his stare. Remy shivered at the intensity their connection presented, all of his control slipping away.He watched as Finn brought a bite of pie to his lips, slowly blowing on the food, his gaze never leaving Remy’s eyes. The newcomer slipped the bite in between his lips, pulling the fork from his mouth at an agonizing pace. Finn’s tongue licked the fork like it was the best thing he had ever tasted, causing Remy to picture the guy’s tongue licking his…Remy’s breath left him in a shudder. This was coming along too quickly. Maybe this was all his imagination. No way would this guy be coming onto him, he was heartbroken and alone, no way would Finn be so trusting so quickly.To keep his mouth from saying something stupid, he forced a bite of pie inside his mouth. The taste made him close his eyes with a small groan. He had eaten Jackie’s pot pie at least three times a week for the past month, and never had it tasted this good. It felt like coming home with a single bite, and Remy let the wonderful taste roll around his tongue.”Remy?” He heard a husky voice ask, forcing his eyes to open. That voice made his heart do back flips, his name like a poem from Finn’s lips. He wanted to reach across the table and slam Finn’s lean muscled back against the surface, taking him right here, for the entire world to see.”Yeah?” Remy managed.”Are you alright?” Finn looked worried, but Remy just smiled.”All good,” The Sheriff braced his hand against the table to keep from touching the fingers that were so close.Finn was about to reply, when Remy’s radio went off. The Sheriff grunted, pulling the damned annoyance from his belt to answer.”Sherriff La Croix, do you copy?” Henrietta’s voice came over the line.Remy pressed the radio, “Go ahead Henny.””We just received a call from Mason, the highways have just been shut down, with whiteout conditions, and it’s heading this way. Sheriff Calhoun wanted to give you a heads up for the barricades, I 98 and 124 are down. They’re losing power in the farther out residences and already have their deputies checking the roads. I ain’t about to bother Le Roy neither, so who do you want sent out to set ’em up?”Remy sighed, fate had awful timing. The forecast had predicted the blizzard conditions, but a full on whiteout and highways shutting down was bad news. He was going to have to clear out the diner, to get people home safely in time.”Call in Briggs and Carrow, tell em to set up the barricades for all four main roads leading out of town. If it’s as bad as Mason says, were gonna have to do a lockdown for the night. I’m gonna shut down Jackie’s and you call over to the bar and tell Luke to do the same. I want everyone off the roads before this storm hits. Do me one last favor and call J.R. and tell him to send a warning out on the air, some folks tune in this late, and word will get around,” Remy replied, wracking his brain for anything he was forgetting.”Oh and go out and check the gates for the generator and make sure they aren’t frozen shut again please. That should do it Henny, thanks doll.””No problem Sherriff. You stay safe out there and I’ll let you know if we got any trouble,” The cute old bird’s voice returned.”I will. Night Henny,” Remy chuckled, clipping his radio back onto his belt.”Oh my God, I live out there. If they put up a barricade, how will I get home?” Finn started to panic, causing Remy to smile.”Don’t worry city boy, I won’t leave you sleeping in this booth. Besides, you drive yourself all the way back there and you’re sure to be stuck until the plows hit you up. That could be a couple of days,” The Sheriff assured.”A couple of days? What am I going to do Remy?” Finn groaned and Remy had the sudden urge to comfort him within his own arms.”Well you can always stay with me. I’m just up the road, got plenty of room,” Remy heard himself say with shock.~~~~In the Kitchen~~~The radio above the fridge was detailing the latest weather reports, causing Don to worry, “Oh man, this sucks. We haven’t had a storm this bad in years, should probably close down early and get folks home. Oh shit, Kara! I hope she hasn’t left yet, the roads are icy and she shouldn’t drive that piece of crap in this.”The dark haired man rubbed his eyes with his forearm, throwing the sponge in the sink. Chris looked up from his latest dessert creation with a grin, “Why don’t you take off Don, I’ll clean up, and you get Kara home. Here…” Chris held up the aforementioned brownies to Don.”Ah man, thanks so much. I really do owe you one,” Don squeezed Chris’ shoulder, taking the offered box.”You owe don’t owe me a thing. Happy Valentine’s Day Don,” Chris winked at the dishwasher.”You too bro, see ya later,” Don murmured dreamily, slipping on his thick parka, before stepping out front.”There won’t be a later Don…” Chris murmured to himself and went back to boxing up the last of the baked goods for the night.~~~Finn~~~”You want me to stay with you? I mean not to sound ungrateful or anything, but you don’t even know me Remy. I don’t think that’s such a good idea for either of us,” Finn was flabbergasted, broken out of his lustful reverie.”Boy, you wouldn’t know the first thing about camping out in a blizzard. Consider it a simple favor and don’t make it out to be anything more than that,” Remy replied flatly. Finn noticed the man’s eyes shift to the table with a hint of disappointment.Finn felt like an ass. Here this gorgeous, not to mention compassionate man was, offering him safety from the storm, and he was looking for the first way to escape, by throwing up that damned guard again. He exhaled slowly to try that comment again.”What I meant was…are you sure that’s alright with you?” Finn rephrased and the big Sheriff looked up with a little life back in his eyes.”I wouldn’t have asked if I wasn’t sure,” Remy’s voice came husky.”Okay then…” Finn whispered feeling like this man owned him suddenly. Remy’s deep rumble was soothing to him and his simple presence at the table made Finn forget everything else that bothered him about today.It felt like pendik escort a weight had been lifted from him, his Gran, his Mom, and Joel seemed to float away with Remy here. He wasn’t sure what would happen tonight, but Finn was sure it would end with Remy.”Let me go talk things over with Miss J and I’ll be back. Sit tight Finn…” Remy winked, the sexy gesture making Finn want to crank his shit right there at the table.Finn was suddenly alone in the booth with nothing more than his blasted phone. An idea occurred to him as he flicked the silly cupid decoration on the table and grabbed the phone next to him. He didn’t know what was coming over him, but it felt right.Pulling up the photos that he had saved to his downloads, he selected them all, and with a deep breath, hit delete. Every photo of Joel, every photo of Finn and Joel, and every stalker like download of Joel and Jacob, gone. Finn stared at the empty screen that was blinking, anxious for new photos to store, and smiled. It took one rugged cop and a pot pie to do it, but his heart felt cleaner and ready for something new.Finn took in Remy as he slung an arm around the tiny Miss J, a genuine smile across his lips as he chattered to Jackie and the young hostess. He couldn’t find a single fault with this man so far, and every minute he felt the pull towards Remy growing stronger. If someone would have told him last night that he would be sitting in a mom and pop diner on Valentine’s, with a sexy Sheriff, swirling a fork through a homemade pot pie, Finn would’ve laughed until he threw up.Less than twenty fours later though, he couldn’t imagine it any other way. His eyes watched Remy take a generous wad of cash out of his pocket, stuff it at Jackie with a laugh, and walk back towards their table. Remy’s gaze was already on him within seconds, a look that was meant only for Finn. The Sheriff gave him one of his lazy grins and turned to face the restaurant.He whistled commandingly and every head in the diner turned, eyes on Sheriff Remy La Croix, “Excuse me folks, I have some bad news. Looks like the blizzard is less than an hour from sweeping through Bermont and at this time I’m asking all of you to get on home. All the highways have been closed down, as well as all of the connecting routes. So if you live anywhere off there, Mrs. Judge has kindly offered the motel up to all of you with no way to get home,” A few groans were mingled with some knowing smiles, “Now, give us a few minutes and we’ll get all your leftovers boxed up, along with some of those amazing baked goods to take home for all the trouble. Thanks folks and have a Happy Valentine’s Day…” Remy nodded, making Finn think on how good he would look tipping a hat.God, this man was a sweetheart, Finn smiled thirty minutes later. Within minutes Remy had orchestrated a plan, had everyone on their way safely, and was currently helping Jackie wash down a few tables. Finn rose from the booth, looking around for a way to help, when a charming, blonde teenager came out of the back kitchen.”Oh Chris! Good your still here,” Jackie pulled herself from the vinyl booth she was washing down, “I wanted to introduce you to the Sheriff. Remy, this is Chef Chris,” She said with a laugh.”Chef Chris huh? Has a certain ring to it I guess,” Chris hugged Jackie from the side lovingly.”Then there you have it, once you get a nickname like that, can’t let you leave,” Jackie giggled.”Well it’s nice to meet you Chris, heard wonderful things about you, and might I say, that was hands down the best damned pot pie I have ever eaten,” Remy shook the young man’s hand eagerly.Jackie playfully elbowed Remy in the side, “Mind your tongue boy.””Aw Miss J, you know I adore your cooking, but golden boy here has the touch. You wouldn’t happen to have anything sweet back there would ya Chris?” Remy glanced over the counter looking for more pink boxes.”Actually I have something special for both of you,” Chris’ eyes were warm, but his words were strangely powerful to Finn.Finn couldn’t help himself as he walked forward to stand next to Remy, wanting to feel his body heat close by. Chris disappeared into the back, only to reappear with two large pink boxes. Remy shifted, noticing Finn next to him with a grin. He shivered as the bigger man moved behind him slowly. The Sheriff seemed to like their proximity just as much as Finn, so he smirked, and leaned back, meeting a hard chest. Finn felt the body behind him stiffen, and he stepped forward in shock. What the hell was he doing? It was like he was magnetized to Remy. Oh no. Did he read the man’s signals wrong? Finn suddenly feared that Remy La Croix was not gay at all and he was just another hopeless fool.~~~Chris~~~The cook took in the couple as he approached from the kitchen. The flow of heat between them was strong, making Chris radiate with joy. It had been a while since he had seen sparks fly so quickly between a couple and knew the fates were smiling down upon them. The smaller man seemed taken with the Sheriff, but also guarded, afraid almost to let his heart be captured.It had become apparent through the images Chris had seen, that Finn had been hurt before, not only with his heart, but with every fiber of the man’s being. He watched as the poor guy jumped away from the warm body snuggled at his back, completely misinterpreting the situation. Finn was obviously conflicted with the Sheriff’s preferences and more importantly his intentions.Finn nervously leaned against the counter while Chris came to stand in front of the two with the pink boxes. The cook handed one to each man, both of them held a certain excitement in their eyes. Chris awaited the unveiling, watching the two men curiously peer inside the treat containers. His heart soared when Finn gasped, the lid to his box flipped open, unsaid emotions blatant on his face.”This is…How did you? There’s no way you could’ve known…” Finn stumbled through his speech.”Known what?” Chris smirked, slinging an arm around Jackie. He knew alright, but he kept mum.”These are cinnamon tea cakes…I would know them anywhere,” Finn’s eyes filled with tears and he turned his head to hide his face.”What’s wrong?” Remy swooped in and squeezed the smaller man’s shoulder. The Sheriff set the box he held next to him, bringing his free hand to turn Finn’s face to his.”We’ll be in the back closing up,” Jackie smiled knowingly, grabbing Chris’ hand to lead the way.Chris got one more glimpse of his latest success and followed Jackie into the back. By the end of tonight, those two were going to be madly in love.~~~Remy~~~He felt something tug in his chest, watching Finn’s eyes fill with unshed tears. Whatever those cookies were, they meant something to him.”Hey, come here…” Remy pulled Finn to his chest. He just needed to comfort him, make the guy smile for a change.? part 3 ?Finn sniffled against him, nuzzling his face deep within Remy’s open parka. Remy breathed in the scent of Finn’s green apple shampoo, tightening his arms around the smaller man. Whatever had scared the guy away earlier was lost. He smiled, feeling leaner arms wrap around his waist, under his thick coat.”You can tell me Finn, it will be alright,” Without another thought he bent his head down, laying a tender kiss on his city boy’s hair.Finn looked up at him. His chocolate eyes glossy and his cheeks tinged a rosy pink, “My mom made them for me all the time. They were my favorite. Gran taught her to make them when she was little.””That Gran of yours sure knew her way around a kitchen,” He paused and smoothed Finn’s hair away from his brow. “What about your mom?”He knew what was coming just from reading Finn’s expression. The guy’s eyes clouded over, a frown on his lips, and his arms tightened around Remy’s hard back.”She passed away about ten months ago. Breast cancer,” Finn looked down, once again hiding his face.”I’m so sorry Finn. I lost my own Mama about two years ago, I know how hard that is,” Remy murmured into Finn’s hair.”Everything is falling apart Remy,” Finn suddenly looked into the Sheriff’s eyes, “I have no one, nothing to turn too. That’s why I came here, to get away from it all, but I just feel more alone. First Joel, then my Mom, and now Gran, it just isn’t right. What did I do Remy? Where did I go wrong?” Finn started to sob.Remy had the feeling that this poor man had been suffering in silence for too long. He had no one to help him through, and Finn had been dumped on by a shit storm. Remy wanted to punch that little bastard Joel in the face for leaving such a sweet creature all alone. He took a deep breath to calm himself before replying to the fragile man in his arms.”You did nothing wrong baby,” Remy whispered, gently rocking his hips, while holding onto Finn, “Death is just a part of life. There is nothing we can do to stop it, no matter how hard we try.”Remy tilted Finn’s face to him once more, “And as for the being alone part, Joel was a fool to leave you. He don’t deserve an ounce of what you have to offer, but with that said…you aren’t alone anymore Finn. I’ll do everything in my power to make sure you’re never alone again.”Remy’s heart swelled, realizing there was no going back from that kind of declaration. He might be all male, but inside his stomach was full of butterflies. He was possessed by Finn, hopelessly and utterly lost to him. He didn’t care that it was just dinner and small talk that got them to this place. Remy just knew in this moment, that Finn was his.”Yeah, right,” Finn surprised him, the smaller man wriggled out of his grasp, “That’s what they all say. This day is fucking cursed I swear it! Fate decided that this day was meant to mock me, throwing my pain in my face. How can you promise me something like that Remy? You don’t know me at all! We’ve known each other for a whole three hours and you’ve offered me your home, you paid for dinner, and now you promise me something like that! Do you know I’m gay Remy? As in homosexual, lover of men…Do you want a gay man trotting around your home?”Finn had finally broken and Remy saw it in every move the guy’s body made. He was so tense, all his muscles vibrating with this meltdown, his chocolate eyes wide with exclamation. Remy started to laugh. He let his head fall back and laughed so hard, he had to clutch his stomach.”What the fuck is so funny?” Finn screeched.”Oh…oh my lord boy,” Remy gasped, “Do I want a gay man in my house?” He couldn’t help it as he let loose another stream of laughter.Finn’s look of despair made him quiet down, taking in deep breaths to cool off, “Finn, I’m sorry, but that was a good one. I guess what I should of said is yes. Yes, I want a gay man in my house.””Why?” Finn obviously needed to hear it from Remy’s lips.Remy took a step forward, prowling his eye’s seriously over the smaller man, “You sure you want the answer to that boy.”Remy couldn’t help it as he straightened himself to his full height, straining his muscles, and showing off his entire body like the leader of the pride.”Yes,” Finn whispered, clutching the glass case behind him.Remy stalked forward, putting his hands on either side of Finn. His face was inches away from those deep brown eyes, “Because I want to see your beautiful body in my bed and watch you writhe, begging me for more. I want to hear you say my name over and over until you can’t breathe. I want to wake up tomorrow with your warm skin beside me, listening to your satisfied breathing. I want…well hell I want you in my damned house and that’s all there is to it.”Remy watched Finn’s eyes, shock and lust battling for first place. The Sheriff didn’t give him a chance to decide, he slid his thick arms around that small waist, pulling Finn tight against him.”Oh my, I am so sorry to interrupt Remy,” Jackie covered her mouth, stifling a wide smile.”I don’t believe that for a second,” Remy recovered himself, regretting the loss of Finn as he brought his arms back to his sides.”Yeah well, we need to get this place locked up, unless you two are planning on sleeping here tonight,” Jackie grinned, raising a brow, “Besides there’s already snow shin deep out there, you boys best hit the road. Oh and Finn honey, why don’t you let Sherriff La Croix here take you to the motel, those roads are already too dangerous to be driving on.””He isn’t staying at the motel…” Remy huffed, “I already told him he’s staying with me Miss J.”Jackie raised both brows, but a grin crossed her lips, “Well that takes care of that then. You need anything before you get out of here?”Remy nodded, “Yeah, you mind if I take a coat from lost and found? City boy here thinks this leather thing will keep him warm,” Remy chuckled, lifting Finn’s thin leather jacket with a finger.”I got just the thing, be right back,” Jackie sang, running to the back once more.Finn was as quiet as mouse. Remy turned back to him, “I can hear your mind whirling over there.””You’re gay?” Finn whispered.”I thought that was a given,” Remy chuckled.”But you’re the Sherriff…I thought…””Well what you think and what really is, aren’t always one in the same,” Remy replied.”So you want me to…””You really aren’t good at finishing sentences are you?” Remy laughed, “Don’t worry Finn, I’m gonna take care of you…”Remy smiled, looking his city boy in the eye. Whatever Finn saw there caused him to shift from foot to foot, anxiety creeping over his face. Remy frowned. He had been so sure Finn was into him. He had seen it with his own damned eyes. Now though, he felt as nervous as Finn looked. Had he crossed a line? Had he pushed the guy away?”Look Finn…I didn’t mean to make you feel so…” Remy tried.”Just stop it okay? You’re only making this worse. Let’s just drop all of this and you can take me to the motel. I’ll pick up my car in the morning and you won’t have to ‘take care’ of me anymore.” Finn crossed his arms, eyes downcast.”No,” Remy growled.”No?” Finn looked up in disbelief.”That’s what I said and it just so happens, my word is law,” Remy narrowed his eyes and Finn took in a sharp breath.Remy smiled internally, Finn was so his.~~~Finn~~~No fucking way! There was no way Finn felt like this after three hours with Remy. He couldn’t do it. He licked his lips, his eyes hidden, and he could almost taste Remy in his mouth. Those things the Sherriff had said made his body quiver, but his brain felt like it would detonate at any moment. Not only was Remy gay, he was really gay for Finn.”What about what I want?” Finn stared into green eyes.”I already know what you want,” Remy chuckled.”Oh yeah, what’s that?” Finn’s voice choked.Jackie had a way with timing, her quick steps echoing in the all but empty diner, “Found something for ya.” She held out a dark blue parka to Finn.He blushed with Remy’s penetrating gaze upon him, wrapping his nimble fingers around the coat offered to him, “Thanks Jackie.””No thanks needed baby. Now you two get yourselves out of here and right on home,” The petite hellion commanded with a smile.”Tell Chris thanks for us. That was really nice of him to save us some sweets,” Remy grinned.”Hey it’s what I do,” A smooth chuckle came from behind the trio, and Chris appeared with his own parka wrapped snuggly over his boyish frame, “It’s thanks enough when you enjoy the goods.” The angelic blonde winked at Finn.Finn averted his eyes from the uncomfortable watch of Chris, pulling his arms into the warm sleeves of his new coat. He zipped up the heavy parka, following up with the multitude of buttons that would increase his shield from the wild rural elements.Remy grabbed a shiny black helmet from the waiting area, holding it out to Finn, “You put this on. I won’t need it.”Finn stared at the object offered, wondering what the hell he had gotten himself into to. He had thought surely the Sheriff had some fancy, snow rigged truck, but now he knew otherwise. Finn looked from Remy to the helmet in contemplation, his fear of things without doors suddenly spiking.”I thought you had a truck or something,” Finn gulped, causing Jackie and Remy to laugh.”What part of ‘it’s too dangerous to drive’ didn’t you get baby?” Jackie giggled.Finn thought it over, realizing those words had indeed been said, but he hadn’t thought anything of it until now.”I promise you’ll be safe, been riding sleds since I was old enough to walk,” Remy purred with comfort.”Hold up! Sled…” Finn gaped. Visions of a small red sled popped into his head, followed by c***dren riding down hills at Christmas.”Not that kind,” Remy read his mind “A snowmobile and a really fast one.””I dunno…” Finn was unsure, but he took one look at Remy’s confident expression, and grabbed the helmet.”Fine, but take it slow alright? I don’t like motorcycles or jet skis…” Finn murmured quietly.”Guarantee you’ll pick up a love for it around here,” Jackie gave him a reassuring squeeze.The woman had a way with making you feel right at home and suddenly he was reminded of the void that Jackie somehow seemed to fill, the space where his Gran had left open. Finn took a deep breath, controlling his straying thoughts and nodded, perking his body up and setting himself up for the ride ahead.”Yea, guess I’ll have to…” Finn smiled slightly, noticing Chris’ dazzling grin.There was something about the guy that made Finn feel uneasy, but at the same time relaxed. If Chris had been a little older, he might have made Finn blush from head to toe with his starling beauty, but as it was, the boy was barely legal, and didn’t have his heart.His heart…Where did that come from? Chris winked at him again, as if reading his thoughts, and Finn turned away to look at Remy. The Sherriff was watching him carefully; probably contemplating Finn’s next small crisis before Finn even arrived there. Finn knew he was a fragile mess, but somehow Remy seemed alright with that, maybe even took pride in the fact he could comfort Finn so effortlessly.”I think I’m ready now,” Finn found himself saying, and wondered in what context he meant for that simple statement to be taken.Remy smiled warmly, letting his green eyes sparkle, “Good.”They said their goodbyes to Jackie and Chris, before venturing out into the ensuing winter pandemonium.~~~Remy~~~Remy rubbed his gloved hands together, turning to the shivering man holding two pink boxes, a helmet strap around his wrist. Rapid clouds of hot air hit the cool night and Remy knew the guy was slightly frightened by the storm that surrounded them. Wind whipped at their bodies from every angle, bringing forth gusts of fresh snow that ended up piled around their legs.”You alright?” Remy shouted over the howling storm.Finn did little more than nod, confirming Remy’s suspicions of the city boy’s fears. The Sherriff pulled the boxes from Finn’s shaking hands and went to the storage compartment on his ride. After securing the packages in the weather proof box, he turned to Finn, “You need anything from your car?”Finn shook his head, walking towards him. He was shaking as he came to stand before Remy, even the chattering of Finn’s teeth could be heard above the wind. Remy saw the guy’s eyes were glassy, his nose and cheeks red from the cold, and he melted a little. Poor thing had really never been in a storm like this before. Remy couldn’t help himself and wrapped his thick arms around the smaller man, running his hands up and down Finn’s back quickly to gain some heat.”Put the helmet on and I’ll strap you in. You sit in the back and hold on to my waist tight, like your hugging me. Lean with me when you feel me turn, it’s just easier to glide in the deeper snow like that,” Remy pulled back and smiled.Finn nodded, pulling back his hood to reveal his now messy locks. Remy chuckled as Finn tugged the black helmet onto his head with an audible huff. The Sheriff secured the strap around Finn’s neck and clicked the latch soundly. He patted the top of the helmet softly, pulling Finn towards the rear of the sled.Finn slowly climbed aboard, seating himself against the small backing with his legs spread apart. If it wasn’t frigid as hell out, Remy would’ve been seriously turned on at the sight. His city boy looked right at home on the back of his sled, he thought with a chuckle. Remy pulled a pair of goggles and a thick wool scarf out of the utility bag on the back of his rig. He threw on his gear, pulling his hood down over his head, and buckling the protective covering over his nose and mouth.He settled himself into the driver’s seat, putting the key into the ignition, and immediately felt slender shaky arms encircle his waist tightly. Finn’s smaller body cupped his back nicely and Remy grinned as the sled roared to life.”Hold on baby,” He laughed, taking off sharply into the night.~~~Chris~~~Although he loved his job, he always felt a bit saddened this time of year. After thousands of years helping others, he had yet to experience true love for himself. It was a matter that he kept silent; playing off that the thought alone was selfish, when he brought such love into the world already.Chris sighed, watching Jackie count the till and get ready to close up. He picked up his pack from his feet, peering inside to make sure the contents were still there. Chris grazed his fingers over the jar of golden dust longingly. It was in that jar that desire began and soul mates were found. In the olden days, he had used a more ridiculous means of fulfilling his duties. He shook his head, remembering the golden arrows and the ridiculous loin cloth that left little to the imagination.It had been Chris that came up with the idea of the dust. Using his powers to transfer the desire from the arrows themselves to a fine glittery substance, that when consumed had the same whirlwind effect of all encompassing love.Every year on this day, he watched the humans go about their joyous couplings and deep rooted bonds over small gifts and chocolates. Chris wanted more than anything to dip his finger in that jar and taste desire upon his lips, to know the love a man so true, that it made his toes curl.A clearing of a throat interrupted his thoughts and a tingle went up his spine. Chris turned with wide blue eyes to see a beautiful strawberry blonde female standing before him. Her long wavy hair glittered under the fluorescent lighting, setting off her ocean blue eyes. The woman’s lips were set into a thin smile and she nodded at Chris.”Mother?” Chris whispered furiously, “You can’t be here! What if the human sees you?””Oh darling, do calm down,” Venus sashayed over to her son, throwing a glance towards an unaware Jackie, “She can’t see me, besides I’m not here to make you angry, I have a message for you.”Venus straightened her white wool coat around her tight body and Chris huffed,” What kind of message?”Receiving a message via his mother, or any of the others, was usually a bad thing. Chris cringed inwardly at what he could have possibly done now.”You have until the sun rises to bring love to two others in this place. If you succeed…the thing of which you desire the most is yours,” Venus stated warmly and Chris shook his head.”Mother! That’s impossible…the storm is raging, and there are no more humans left here to pair. I’ve felt no other connections or been given any other images to go on. Is this another of Zeus’ tricks? Are you here to torment me…my own flesh and blood?” Chris felt tears prickling the corners of his eyes.The others knew of his greatest ironic desire and mocked him mercilessly for his lack thereof. He looked into the bluest eyes he had ever known, searching their depths for a truth of some kind. Would his mother be so cruel?”Cupid, I speak nothing but the truth. Your father and I, along with Zeus and the others, have seen your sadness grow with strength, and we are compelled to bring you happiness. The Fates have spoken of things to come…things that come your way my son. If you do this one last thing, your future will be set before you and love will be yours.”His mother’s skin started to glow like a star and she brought her warm fingers to his cheek, “I love you Cupid and I only wish to see you smile. Hurry my son…” Venus smiled and the light increased under her skin, swallowing her from this world.Chris blinked a few times, readjusting his eyes to the now empty kitchen. He gasped, remembering Jackie, and turned to peek out the server’s window. Jackie was still hunched over the cash register, writing away in her records, and finishing up her last minute duties. Chris sighed in relief, leaning against the fridge, when a sudden realization hit him. Jackie!~~~Finn~~~Finn held onto Remy with every bit of strength he had. He felt the monster mobile vibrating underneath him as they whipped through the open field at high flying speeds. When Remy had said he lived close, Finn thought he truly meant right up the street, but that must have been small town lingo. They had covered at least three miles of stormy terrain, passing through thickly forested wood, and over building depths of compacted snowy landscape.The scenery would have been breath taking, had it not been for the flurry of whirling snow raining from the sky, blocking views of every angle. Finn snuggled deeper into Remy’s broad back, resting his helmet between inviting shoulder blades. He began to feel that pull inside of him again, begging to be nearer to the Sherriff he held. Finn bit his lip inside the helmet and pushed his hips deeper into Remy’s ass, tightening his grip around the Sherriff’s waist.He felt Remy scoot into him, pressing his backside against Finn’s rapidly building erection. Finn groaned…the sound bouncing around the confines that covered his head. He subtly ground himself into Remy, hoping the vibrations of the sled, covered his small movements. Remy’s head flicked back for a second and Finn swore he heard the Sherriff’s laughter.Heat crept over his cheeks with humiliation, no doubt he had just been caught humping his host. He cringed silently as the sled started downward and a large home came into view. The details were marred by the storm, but the golden light that spilled from the windows looked warm and inviting, and that was enough for Finn.Remy slowed to a stop next to a huge black truck that was rigged with a plow and cut the engine. Finn didn’t want to let go when Remy patted the small hands around his waist, signaling Finn they had reached their destination. He felt Remy’s chest vibrate with laughter and reluctantly let his hands go. Remy swiftly hopped off the sled, extending a hand to Finn like a gentleman. Finn took the hand and the larger man helped him from his seat, steadying his stance as he plundered into the knee deep snow.? part 4 ?Finn could feel the icy powder soaking through his jeans, chilling him to core. He chattered his teeth while strong hands guided him up an icy set of stairs, to the back entrance of the house. He was beyond freezing as he wrapped his arms around himself, waiting for Remy to unlock the door. A barking on the other side startled Finn from his mindless thinking and he almost slid across the icy wood.Remy’s massive arms caught him around the waist, bringing him up right once more, “You alright?””Yeah, I’m good,” Finn managed, loving the feel of those strong hands on his back.”Don’t let George scare you. He’s just a big teddy bear,” Remy laughed, pushing Finn through to the cracked open door.Finn hesitated for a second, opening the door slowly, and waiting for the barking b**st to attack. The door opened and Remy nudged him inside, revealing the wolf-like creature to his eyes. Finn gasped, the large white and grey husky pattered across the floor, letting out a slow growl.”George, that’s enough. Don’t scare the poor guy,” Remy boomed, shutting the door behind them. He went to the dog, kneeling before George, and scratched behind his ears.George leaned his head into his master’s touch, searching him out with sky blue eyes. Finn stayed glued to the spot, not sure how he felt about the b**st, but he seemed to listen to Remy, and that was what mattered.Looking around the cheery kitchen, he noted the masculine grey’s and blues, but also the coziness the place exuded. Stainless steel appliances, light cabinets, and gleaming hard wood flooring made it stand out from its small town location. He caught Remy staring at him and smiled.”Not what you expected?” The Sherriff grinned.”Not really…” Finn smiled”Why don’t you get out of those wet shoes, and I’ll go grab the packages. Don’t want that stuff going to waist,” Green eyes smiled at Finn.”Uh, yeah alright,” Finn perused the kitchen, shuffling out of his parka, and slowly kicking off his soaked shoes.Remy stood, disappearing outside for a minute. Finn placed his wet socks inside his shoes and padded forward to the large opening in the dining room. He shivered at the sight of the living room. He envied Remy. This house was so beautiful and homey. It was nothing like the small cottage he owned, currently devoid of charm and that special touch that it once held.Large chocolate leather sofas took up one half of the room, placed perfectly in front of a fire place. Finn’s toes curled around a thick yet soft area rug while he took in the picture window and all the perfectly spaced black and white photos on the wall. He moved forward to see the pictures, when he heard Remy come back into the kitchen.Feeling like he was intruding somehow, Finn stepped back into the kitchen. Remy was pulling the lid off a glass cake display, carefully transferring the treats into their new home.”You want one?” Remy turned around, with a red velvet cookie in his mouth.Finn tried not to laugh at the boyish look on Remy’s face, “In a little while.””You sure? They’re really good,” Remy almost moaned around a bite full of cookie.”Yea I’m sure,” Finn chuckled.”Alright, how about we find you something to wear?” Remy brushed cookie crumbs off his plaid button up, gesturing for Finn to follow.Finn stepped lightly behind Remy, following him up a polished wooden staircase. Pictures of what Finn assumed were family, dotted the navy blue walls, and he sighed at his lack thereof. They came to a stop at the end of a wide hallway and Remy pushed open the door to a bedroom. Finn stopped dead in his tracks. This room had to be Remy’s, it even smelled like him, warm and male.A king sized bed done in creams and browns was the focal point of the room. Large windows sat to either side of the bed, and a unique iron light fixture hung from the peaked ceiling. Remy tapped his shoulder, handing him a pair of sweatpants and a soft long sleeved t-shirt.”They’ll be a bit large, but they should be comfy,” Remy winked, “You can use my bathroom, or I can go ahead and show you your room.”Finn had the urge to just strip right there and crawl under the covers of the monstrous king size bed, but he could never be so bold. He exhaled, “If you don’t mind, I’d like to see my room.””Right this way,” Remy chuckled, noting Finn’s flustered state.They walked about four feet, before Remy opened another door in the hallway. Finn wondered why Remy would choose the room closest to his, but kept his mouth shut. Remy had been nothing but helpful and it would be rude to question his kindness. Finn smiled as he was led into the cozy blue room. A smaller bed was set up against a window with a little fireplace on the opposite wall. Built in bookshelves took up the adjacent wall, stuffed with novels and references of all sizes. It was clean, warm, and very cozy.”There’s a bathroom right there,” Remy gestured to a door Finn hadn’t noticed, “I’m going to go downstairs and fix up something to drink, want anything in particular? I got coffee, tea, or my favorite Chai…” Remy murmured, watching Finn as he sat on the bed.His favorite was Chai? Finn smiled, of course they had the same favorite, why wouldn’t they? Finn smiled wider, wondering where the heck this man had been his whole life.”I’ll take Chai,” Finn blushed.Remy looked at him, captivating Finn with those green eyes. The bigger man’s fingers twitched and Finn felt the same way, each wanting to touch the other, but too scared of the outcome. He stood from the bed, flicked his lashes up to Remy, and smiled gently before going into the small bathroom. He closed the door, cutting Remy off to think.Yeah, it was kind of rude to leave the guy hanging like that, but Finn needed to sort this situation out. What he was feeling in this moment went beyond desire and lust. escort pendik He looked past Remy’s good looks, seeing stability and compassion there. Even when he had been with Joel, never had he felt such warmth from the other man. Looking back now, the relationship had always been one sided. It was Finn that offered real love, trust, and companionship, not Joel.Finn shook his head thinking about Joel, that asshole would never have taken a complete stranger into his lavish little condo, not even under the direst of circumstances. Finn wondered now if Joel hadn’t become a doctor for the money, because it certainly wasn’t to help people, in fact he was more in the business of hurting rather than fixing. Finn sighed, rubbing a soft towel over his hair, and inhaling the comforting scent of laundry softener. He had to give the Sherriff credit; even the little bathroom looked more like home, than his condo with Joel ever had.Cute little French milled soaps were placed by the sink, a claw foot tub took up most of the small room, and it was lined with various gourmet bubble baths and frou frou gels. He smiled, running his hands over a black and white picture of a forested landscape and wondered if it was somewhere around here. God this felt like home, Finn thought, maybe not his, but it was home all the same. Finn looked into the mirror as he slipped on the sweats, tying them tightly around his small waist, and wondered if Remy had been serious about earlier. Could such a man as Remy, with his good looks, and even better personality, want him for real?~~~Remy~~~Remy smirked as Finn shut the door, loving how shy he was. It was now the Sherriff’s personal mission to get the city boy to come around to his side, and maybe turn that little frown into a blazing smile. He had never felt overwhelmed by a man before, seeing as how he had never known feelings like these, and usually the men he caught in his basket were the kind to jump right out the next morning. Remy loved the way Finn looked just padding softly around his house and his heart soared knowing the guy was going to be sleeping in the room next to his.He swallowed thickly at the thought and went to start the Chai. His Momma had always made the k**s Chai tea with a little milk and sugar on cold winter nights like this, and he was hoping it would do the trick and calm Finn down. He wanted Finn to feel safe and comfortable around him, but even he had his doubts about that. Remy poured some milk into a pan to heat it up, and scowled. Why would someone leave a guy like Finn? Sure he was beautiful, but Remy was more attracted to his innocence, his heart, and his trust. Would someone like Finn come around to a man like him?He kicked himself for being so aggressive earlier. Finn probably thought he was some he-man pervert, who only wanted him over to bang his brains out. Then again Finn could’ve asked Jackie to take him to the motel, but he didn’t, so that was a good sign. Wasn’t it? Remy poured the Chai concentrate into the pot and stirred slowly. Damn, he missed his Momma. She would’ve known what to do with Finn, the right words and touches, a way to make him stay. Remy sniffled and wiped a tear from under his eye. His heart went out to Finn at the loss of his Mother. He knew what it was like to need someone so badly, only to have them gone for good.Remy shuddered at the thought of going it all alone, a death so tragic that it rocked your world completely, and to experience it without the love and support of brothers and sisters, and more importantly your father who held it all together, even though he was falling apart inside. Finn had to have some kind of strength to still be standing here today. To live through a horrible break-up, the passing of your Gran, and your Momma all in the same year. Now there was a real man.Remy took a deep breath and steadied himself by gripping the sides of the stove. More tears fell slowly down his cheeks. He didn’t hear Finn come into the kitchen and almost jumped out of his skin when a hand wrapped around his shoulder.”Christ on a cross. You almost put me in the ground boy,” Remy turned to see Finn, staring at him with concern. The Sheriff shuddered and sniffled, remembering he had tears on his face, and turned back to the stove. “The Chai is almost done. Go ahead and take a seat in the living room, I’ll be there in a minute.” He wiped his eyes on his flannel sleeve.”Hey, you okay?” Finn spoke softly, stroking a hand up and down Remy’s back.He didn’t know how to respond. The slow touch on his back felt so good to his heart and his body. When was the last time a man had ever just taken care of him? Uh that would be never, well, excluding his Dad.”Yeah, I’m good,” Remy struggled, keeping a fresh set of tears from falling. He took in a sharp breath, when small arms encircled his waist from behind, gently hugging him to Finn’s chest.”I know that look, so you don’t have to hide from me,” Finn whispered, rubbing his thumb in small circles around Remy’s stomach.”I ain’t about to dump my problems on you. Tonight was about taking care of you, so let me do that okay?” Remy leaned back, loving how Finn didn’t budge, and the smaller man’s lean chest merged with his back.”Remy…I am an adult. You know that right? I may be new around here, but I’ve lived enough to know that people need to take care of each other. It sucks when you have to be alone all the time, to suffer in silence. I know that.”Remy turned the stove off, moving the pot to the back burner, and turned around to face Finn. He looked down into those chocolate eyes and cupped the side of Finn’s face in his large palm, “You wanna take care of me?”Finn was silent for a second, then smiled, lighting up his whole face, “Well it’s only right to return the favor.”Remy thought his heart was going to explode, but he kept his expression to a minimum, a sparkle of the eyes and a small grin, “You don’t owe me anything city boy.””It’s not about who owes who Remy, I feel this, and you feel this. I don’t have an explanation for what’s happening, but I do know that I’m done running from a good thing. I’m done living to please someone else and getting hurt. You’re a beautiful man Remy and I’m not talking about just your looks either,” Finn bit his lip then smiled, “This was not a coincidence. You and me; all of this, is something else.”Remy couldn’t take it anymore, he wrapped his hands around the back of Finn’s head, reveling in the baby soft skin of his boy’s neck, his fingers running through sandy hair, “Yea it is.”He bent down slowly, watching Finn’s eyes for some hint of fear. His mouth descended, closing in on awaiting lips, and finally they connected. Remy pressed against Finn gently, but firmly, feeling those pouty lips push back. One of Finn’s hands snaked into Remy’s hair, wrapping it in a fist, but not aggressively. This kiss was meant to be sweet, to show each other trust, to symbolize letting this fear of hurt dissipate between them.Finn sighed against Remy’s lips and before tongues could be involved, Remy pulled back. Finn seemed lost as his eyes readjusted from the chaste kiss. Remy chuckled and brushed a thumb over his city boy’s lips, feeling the slightest bit of moisture come away on his finger.”You still want Chai?” Remy grinned and Finn nodded, “Go into the living room and I’ll bring it to you.””Okay,” The smaller man nodded, going back towards the living room, but not before he smiled over his shoulder.Remy wanted to pounce on him, but taking it slow was the right thing to do. Finn deserved that much. He pulled out the mugs with the little hearts on them from the cabinet, holding in a laugh as he poured the Chai. He slipped his fingers in the heart shaped handles and stepped into the living room with a grin.~~~Chris~~~”Well damn Sug, this old baby ain’t looking too hot.” Jackie pulled her coat closer to her body crouching in the snow. Chris wasn’t much of a mechanic, but he knew that with a touch to the engine he could get the thing working. Something inside him said not to though and he went with his gut.”Miss J, how about we go back inside and call a tow. There’s got to be someone that can at least give us a lift to your place.” He replied innocently.She peered out from her hood and laughed, “Baby in a storm like this, I’m not sure even the deputies are trucking around much, let alone a tow.””Wouldn’t hurt to try though right?” Chris grinned, this had to be the answer. There were only so many ways he could bring two people together, one being two people had to actually be in the same vicinity, and hopefully the tow would be the answer to his prayers.”Yeah I guess you’re right, can’t be bothering the deputies with a little sled problem no how. Them poor things are probably run ragged by now.” She exhaled a burst of hot air, which was quickly swept into the gust of blasting snow.”Come on Miss J, let’s get inside, it’s too cold out here to be chatting,” Chris extended a helping hand and hauled Jackie to her feet. They waded through over a foot of snowy drift and by the time they reached the diner door, they were both out of breath. Being in human form had its limits. The cold was proving that pretty clearly.Jackie unlocked the diner, heading behind the front counter in the dark, knowing every step by heart. Chris flicked on a few small lights to the front and the door to the kitchen. He turned when he heard a thump against the counter, watching Jackie flip through an ancient directory, trying to find someone to come to her rescue.Bright headlights shone through the front windows and Chris held up a hand to shield his eyes at the sudden onslaught of light. Jackie glanced up with a smile as the lights cut out, flipping the directory closed. A huge shadow made its way to the front door, standing just outside, trying to peer in. Chris looked at Jackie quickly before quickly before going to the door and unlocking it for the hulking figure.A man in tan coveralls and a brimmed checkered wool hat raised a hand in greetings as Chris opened the door. The man pulled his hat off and tucked it under his arm, revealing a head of short gray hair and giving Chris a better view of his gentle brown eyes.”Hi there, my name is Clarence Hubbard and I was wonderin if Miss Jackie might be around. Saw the light on and figured I better check on her before headin home.” His thick country accent was welcoming and his manners weren’t lacking.”Well hey Clarence,” Jackie rounded next to Chris, motioning for the man to come inside, “Why aren’t you home yet? Don’t tell me you were pulling a round in a storm like this?””No Ma’am. I was just coming back from visiting my daughter and her family. I saw your light on and thought I’d stop and see if you needed any help. Don’t usually stay this late and I was a bit worried.” He nodded and Jackie blushed.Oh yes! This was it, Chris could feel the pull between them.”Well that was awful kind of you Clarence. Actually we were just about to call a tow, my sled won’t start up and we weren’t about to walk home,” She giggled and Chris felt like sighing. They were so incredibly polite and adorable. It was like watching an old black and white, where romance was still the star of the show. Not like these new films, blood, gore, and nothing but cheap sex.”Aw well then I’m glad I was compelled to stop. How about I give you two a ride on home?” The older man smiled kindly and it took everything for Chris not to hug him. This man had just answered his prayers and given him the greatest gift in the entire universe.”I would appreciate that, if it’s not too much trouble of course…”Jackie glanced down shyly and Clarence beamed.”You are never a bother to me Miss Jackie,” The huge man grinned like a little boy.”You are too kind Clarence Hubbard,” She looked up and then turned to Chris. “Sug, would you go on back and grab another box of those cookies and heat up some coffee for Clarence. It’s the least I can do.””I’m on it,” Chris smiled and headed to the back.Twenty minutes later the three of them were snuggly seated in the cab of Clarence’s truck. The chains wrapped around the tires gave them perfect traction as they slowly made their way through the storm.Chris opened the box of cookies and held it out to Clarence, “You have to try these, my own recipe.””Well thank you Chris,” Clarence slipped a large hand into the box and came away with a red velvet cookie, stuffing it into his mouth. The large man made a satisfying groan, nodding at Chris in agreement.”Well hell, give me one then too,” Jackie snagged a cookie from Chris and bit into it delicately, a smile lighting up her eyes.”These are the best damn cookies I’ve ever had,” Clarence declared and covered his mouth with a frown, “Sorry about the language Miss Jackie, just slipped out.””Don’t be silly Clarence, we all swear…” She shook her head in amusement.”But never in front of a lady. My Momma taught me that and she was a smart cookie, no pun intended of course,” He winked at Chris.Jackie giggled and Chris started to relax. This felt so right, the pull between them was so comfortable and perfect. He started to wish it was him instead of them. Some minutes later, they came to a barricade, with a police truck to one side. A deputy stepped in front of Clarence’s truck, waving his hands above him to halt. Clarence slowed to a stop and rolled down his window with a frown.”Deputy Carrow, good evening,” Clarence tipped the brim of his wool hat and the deputy nodded.”Sorry folks, emergency shut-down. Got a drift some eight feet high about a hundred yards down. Had to barricade the road on both sides,” Carrow leaned into the heat of the cab, “Evenin’ Ms. J. Hope you’re keeping warm.””Well Bobby I am right now, but I don’t know how I’m gonna get home,” She sighed and clapped a hand to her thigh in modest irritation. The woman probably never got mad, she didn’t seem the type.? part 5 ?”The motel still has some vacancies if you head on over now, I’m sure you’ll get a room. Let me phone over there and tell Mrs. Judge to hold you a spot.” Bobby started to back up to go to his truck.”Oh don’t worry about that Deputy. I’ll take these two in for the night. It’s just me and Sy at the house and we got plenty of room.” Clarence smiled and turned to us for approval.I elbowed Jackie with a grin and she blushed, “Well if you’re sure about this…” She hugged her arms to her chest.”Of course I am Miss Jackie. I wouldn’t let you freeze in those blasted rooms at the motel. Ain’t got proper heat and those blankets are too darn thin.” He smiled.”Well then, alright. You stay warm out here Bobby, don’t catch your death,” Jackie waved.”I won’t Miss Jackie. You folks be careful and have a good night,” Deputy Carrow tipped the brim of his hat and waltzed back to his warm truck.Clarence rolled up the window and expertly turned the truck around, heading back into town, “Sy will sure be surprised. We don’t get a lot of visitors, so the company will be nice.””Is Sy your dog?” Chris tried to include himself in the conversation, instead of buffering between the two.Both Jackie and Clarence chuckled, “No, he’s my son, stuck around to help with the family business, since my daughter went and became a nurse.””Oh,” Chris breathed, a funny tingle settling in his stomach.”About your age too, what are you eighteen, nineteen?” Clarence glanced over at him, before his eyes settled back on the road.”Yea, uh, eighteen,” Chris nodded. Yeah right. Eighteen plus a couple thousand was more like it.”Hey, you’ll get along just fine. He likes to bake too, but his real love is them electronics, always fiddling with something. Got enough computers to run one of those darn mega stores and all the fixings to go with it. Bright k**, Sy is. I almost feel guilty that he stuck around, when he should be using that brain of his at school, one of them fancy ones, like Harvard or Yale.”Chris’ mouth went dry. This was it, that name had his heart beating against his chest, his fingers clenching his thighs.”Non-sense Clarence, that boy loves to help you and you know it. He wouldn’t do anything he didn’t want to. I only dream that my daughter liked the restaurant business as much as I do, instead she likes being a stay at home newlywed,” The three of them all laughed.”Well can’t fault her there. Being a newlywed is the first part of the ride and it just gets better from there,” Clarence had a far off look as he concentrated on the road.”Yeah…” Jackie looked out her own window.Chris gathered from the things he was receiving that both individuals had lost their spouses. He hoped to the Gods that they could learn to love again. In fact he was counting on it. Love was a slow process for some and for others it was magnetic, taking only a few hours or minutes to know where they belonged eternally. This case was a slow one, but the seed had been planted, and his work was taking affect.These two had been flirting and dancing around each other for over a year, he could see that, but they were both shy at heart and afraid of losing another loved one. In time they would finally break free from their pasts and connect in a well-deserved way that made Chris warm inside. True love really was the best thing about humanity. It was precious and special, almost indescribable in its rewards.By the time the truck turned down a barely visible two track drive, Chris was sure this was what the Gods wanted. This was the couple that he was meant to help. He was still nervous about this son of Clarence’s and the feeling he got every time the guy’s name was mentioned. The truck stopped in front of a house that looked like it had been a barn at one time. A porch peaked out of the top of a snow bank and someone had already been kind enough to clear off the walkway and the front steps, leaving the light on behind them.Chris and Jackie piled out of the truck, following Clarence up the steps, and through the unlocked front door. Jackie slung an arm around Chris’s waist, holding on for security, because she was obviously nervous too. Chris disconnected from Jackie to follow Clarence’s example and take off his wet boots and parka. Jackie did the same and when she was almost finished, footsteps sounded from the second floor, walking towards the stairs.”Pop?” A deep voice called out.”Yea it’s me, come on down, we have guests.” Clarence called up the stairs. Socked feet and jeans appeared, making their way down.Chris forgot how to breathe. The jeans encased thick muscled thighs, like those of a football player. A red cable knit sweater was revealed, snuggly covering a tight broad chest. Finally a head came into view and a face that was more beautiful than any God he’d ever seen. Sharp brown eyes zeroed in on Chris, thick brows raised and full pink lips parted in surprise. A mop of dark hair capped off the guy’s head and Chris wanted nothing more than to run his hands through it.”Well hi there Miss Jackie,” Sy wiped his hand on his jeans for some reason, before extending it to Jackie.”Hey there honey,” She ignored the hand and swooped Sy up in a hug, making the teen chuckle and return the embrace warmly.”My you have grown. Gonna be a big guy like your daddy,” She patted him on the stomach and Sy blushed, glancing up at Chris and clearing his throat. “Oh heavens, Chris, I almost forgot, where are my manners?” Jackie smiled back at Chris.”Sug, this is Sy Hubbard, Clarence’s son,” Jackie introduced and Chris stepped forward and stuck out a shaking hand.”Nice to meet you Chris,” Sy slid his fingers into Chris’s open hand, a spark crackled between them. Chris tried his best to seem unfazed, but inside he was dancing, this was his man, his true love.”Same here,” Chris managed looking into Sy’s shocked face. The guy obviously felt the spark between them and pulled his hand back politely, but looked suspicious.”You boys had dinner yet?” Jackie looked between Clarence and Sy, making the moment a hell of lot less awkward, seeing as how Chris and Sy were just staring at each other.”Uh, no Ma’am, I was gonna wait until Pop got home. Didn’t want it to get cold,” Sy smiled.”Well how about I whip something up for everyone then?” Jackie started walking in the direction of the kitchen, waving off Clarence and Sy’s protests. “Chris honey, come on in here and help me out.”Chris ducked into the kitchen, avoiding Sy’s gaze, to help Jackie make something to eat. Sy seemed oblivious to Chris’ nerves and followed him into the kitchen. He sat at the island and watched the duo start to prepare dinner.”I can help Miss Jackie, honest…” Sy pouted, his boyish expression endearing.”No way, you boys helped us out tonight, the least we can do is cook. Besides, if you sweet talk Chris, maybe he’ll make you dessert,” Jackie winked at Chris, who turned his beet red face to the sink. Make him dessert? Are you serious woman?”I do have quite the sweet tooth,” Sy’s voice was deep and caused Chris to shiver. Oh yea.”I bet you do,” Chris returned, his eyes lustful over his shoulder. Sy’s gaze bore into him and Chris wanted to slide everything off the island and have Sy take him on the wooden slab. Completely primal and uninhibited, two people showing each other love without a care in the world. Alas, it would have to wait. He had to get the Jackie Clarence show on the road first.”You like chocolate cake?” Chris asked, while washing some vegetables.”Who doesn’t?” Sy chuckled, ignoring Jackie’s protests and chopping up some onions.”I’ll take that as a yes then,” Chris bit his lip and brought the other veggies to the island.~~~Finn~~~Finn almost spit Chai out of his nose while Remy told him of his c***dhood shenanigans. They had been talking for what seemed like hours and were snuggled up on the couch, a fire blazing before them. George was nestled between them, enjoying all the attention he was receiving. Finn hadn’t felt this comfortable in a long time and he smiled leaning back into the sofa.”So now that we’ve both covered embarrassing c***dhood stories and our awkward teenage years, how about work, what did you do in Chicago?” Remy grinned, taking a sip from the hideous heart mug. Finn shook his head and grinned.”I was a florist believe it or not. I’ve always had a knack for growing things and flowers became a career for me. There’s just something relaxing about arranging them and picking out the colors, I loved it,” Finn shrugged, hoping it didn’t sound stupid to the man in front of him.”You don’t love it now?” Remy set down his mug and leaned into the couch, propping his head against the back.”No…I mean I still do, but it’s not like there’s a huge flower calling around here,” Finn shrugged. He hadn’t wanted to give up his job in Chicago, but sticking around wasn’t an option, and if giving up flowers meant getting the heck out of dodge, then it was a sacrifice he was willing to make.”How do you know that? Just because we don’t have a florist, doesn’t mean Bermont doesn’t need one,” Remy smiled and Finn wanted to sigh. The man always had the perfect comeback, the right words to make Finn feel better.”For now I think I’ll just look around for something to keep me afloat, live on my savings, and get the cottage in shape before I start to dream about small business opportunities.”Finn wiggled his feet under the dog, receiving a one eyed glare from the ball of fur, “What about you? This house is amazing and I don’t mean to pry, but how do you afford this? Even a sheriff can’t make that much.” Finn changed the subject, not wanting to keep digging a hole in his career depression.”Don’t want to talk about it huh?” Remy smirked, “That’s okay. Well this house was my Aunt’s. When she retired to Florida, she sold it to me. The house was falling apart at the time and my Aunt Sharon just wanted to get rid of it. I had always loved this place, so I bought it from her outright. I’ve spent the past six years fixing it up. What do you think?””I think you know what I think,” Finn looked around with a smile, a twinge of jealousy and loneliness riding his back. “It’s a beautiful house…”Finn looked into the fire, avoiding looking at Remy. He wasn’t sure what he would see there, pity maybe?”Hey…” Remy leaned over, causing George to hop off the couch, and rubbed his shoulder, “You know I was thinking…”Finn turned, looking into Remy’s eyes, “I was thinking you should stay here until you get your place set up. It could take a while to make the cottage livable. I wouldn’t charge you anything and you can even pick your room…”Finn shook his head, “I can’t do that Remy. That’s too much, thank you though.”Live with him? He wanted Finn to live with him? His heart was jumping in joy, but his mind stopped dead in its tracks. It wasn’t logical, he just met this guy today, and here he is asking to live with him? No way, that was not happening.”I insist. No I demand it,” Remy chuckled, scooting closer to Finn, letting their knees touch, and his arm wrap around the back of the couch behind Finn.Finn raised a brow, “You demand it? Are you serious?”Remy laughed again, pulling his body up using his arm behind the couch, and straddled Finn. This was happening, oh God, this was really happening. Finn’s heart raced as the bigger man covered his body, Remy’s ass touching his knees. Finn swallowed. His eyes went wide.”Yeah, I demand it,” Remy brought his lips to Finn’s neck, a large hand cupping the back of his head. Remy’s lips brushed along Finn’s skin, gently nipping, with a sneak of tongue.Finn’s head fell back, exposing more of his skin to Remy, “Remy…” He breathed, locking his fingers behind the Sheriff’s neck.”Is that a yes?” Remy licked a slow line up Finn’s jaw, laying a kiss on his temple, before tugging at Finn’s shirt.Finn moaned and sat up, letting Remy pull off his shirt. He was so lonely, Remy was so perfect; how could he say no? Remy licked his lips, running his hands down Finn’s chest. Finn wanted to see that large chest for himself. He wanted to feel it pressed against him. He pulled at the Sherriff’s shirt, causing Remy to chuckle and cross his arms, pulling the shirt over his head, and throwing it somewhere to the side.Remy was muscled, well defined in every sense, dark hair covered his body, and Finn immediately ran his hands over it. The bigger man closed his eyes, letting Finn explore. Letting go completely, Finn put all his worries aside, and let himself just feel. He wrapped his arms around Remy’s chest and brought his mouth to a tanned nipple.”Ah yea,” Remy tightened his grip in Finn’s hair, pressing the smaller man closer. Finn bit gently down on the nipple in his mouth. “Harder baby…” Remy groaned.Finn bit down harder, pulling the nipple with his teeth, and letting his hand wander down Remy’s chest. The bigger man caught the fleeing hand by the wrist, causing Finn to look up, only to see hungry green eyes staring back. Grabbing Finn’s other hand; Remy lifted his ass off of Finn’s knees, and pulled him across the room.George ran out of the room as if he knew what was about to happen, and Remy laughed, bringing Finn to stand in front of the fireplace. Finn felt the soft rug under his feet, the warmth of the fire against his bare skin. Remy leaned down and brought their lips together, slowly he meshed their mouths against one another in a kiss that even the fire had no comparison for. Finn whimpered, bringing his hands around Remy’s neck, molding their chests together, as they finally let out all of their pent up passion.Remy ate away at Finn’s mouth, while he lowered them both to the ground. Finn moaned as Remy laid him out on the rug, those large paws running over his sides, and down his sweat pants. Large thighs straddled Finn’s smaller legs, bringing their erections together, rubbing and grinding into a rolling dance.”Remy…oh…please,” Finn begged, feeling the bigger man’s cock on him.Remy continued kissing him, letting his mouth eventually slide down, peppering Finn’s neck and chest with tiny kisses, and tweaking his nipples between large fingers. Finn was already close, one touch to his cock and he could explode. The route in which Remy was taking was slow, but heading exactly where Finn needed him to go.Remy sneaked a peek at Finn from under his lashes once finally reaching the waist band of his sweatpants. The Sheriff laid a kiss on his waist before pulling the sweats down his legs. Finn sucked in a breath, his cock completely exposed along with his entire body. He was naked and vulnerable to Remy, the thought exciting him.Finn tried to reach for Remy, wanting more contact with his body, but the man above him shook his head with a smile, “This is for you. It’s my turn to make you smile.” With those words the man bent down and took Finn’s cock into his mouth.”Oh God!” Finn arched off the floor, his hand snaking through Remy’s messy locks. The brunette buried his nose against Finn’s smooth skin, the entire length down his throat. Remy pulled up, letting a few inches slide out of his mouth, sucking hard, letting all but the head escape his wet heat.Finn let go of Remy, propping himself up to watch his cock disappear into the man’s mouth again. He was only about six inches and not very thick, but Remy could take him all and watching it was amazing. Joel would rarely suck him off, so this was a treat. Fuck it, why was he thinking about Joel, when this man who actually cared was worshipping his body?Remy bobbed up and down, gliding his tongue under Finn’s shaft, cupping his balls with warm calloused fingers. Finn fell back against the floor, no longer able to support his upper body, and moaned gripping Remy’s hair in a vice.”Close Remy…ah God close…” Finn gasped and Remy slid off him, working him with one hand. Remy reached up and kissed him softly.”I’m so hard, if I watch you cum, I’ll lose it.” Remy breathed against his mouth.Finn nodded, understanding completely, “Then we come together.”Remy kissed him, “You want me to…” He groaned as Finn thrust against him.”Please…” Finn begged. He wasn’t above it; he needed this, needed Remy.”Okay, hold on baby, I’ll be right back,” Remy was gone in a flash, leaving Finn panting on the floor. Finn palmed his erection, squeezing it and sliding his hand up and down.The Sherriff appeared, ripping the condom packet open with his teeth and a bottle of lube in hand. He took one look at Finn stroking himself and dropped to his knees. Finn laughed at the look on Remy’s face, a smile that seemed to break all his nervous barriers. His laughter ceased as the big man slowly shrugged out of his pants, revealing a cock the size of Finn’s forearm. Dark hair surrounded the thick member and Finn wanted to run his fingers through it.Remy rolled the condom on, before crawling back to Finn, the sounds of their breathing competing with the loud crackle of the fire. Finn slid his hands through all the dark fur he could reach, splaying his fingers and tugging on it occasionally.”You keep doing that and this will be over before we even start,” Remy chuckled into his neck, the bigger man’s knees spreading Finn’s thighs wider. “Lift up for me baby,” Remy purred, slipping large hands under his knees.Finn obliged pulling his knees to his chest. Remy scooted back, parting Finn’s cheeks with both hands, “Fuck, you’re so smooth, and sexy…” The big man cast lust filled eyes at Finn. A finger slipped into Remy’s mouth, wetting it to prepare Finn.Finn closed his eyes, writhing in torture as that wet finger slowly encircled his tight hole. Remy grinned, covering Finn’s body to steal another kiss as he slipped the tip of his thick finger inside.”I…uh…uh,” Finn tried to find the words to express his feelings, as Remy thrust the lone finger in and out of him, attacking his mouth at the same time. Another finger was added and Finn moaned into Remy’s mouth, grinding his dick against Remy with need. After the third finger, Finn was out of his mind, “In me…oh God, please…”Remy’s fingers pulled out, his slick tongue licking the surface of Finn’s lips, “You want this baby?” Remy rubbed his shaft against Finn, gripping both their cocks together, sliding them in and out of his fingers.”Yes, oh fuck…” Finn arched, almost screaming in need.Remy’s palm moved flat under Finn’s cock, running down over his balls, to the crack of his ass, slicking the skin there with the smaller man’s fluids.”Please!” Finn writhed. He was going to cum with this kind of torture. He had never been this turned on before. No pendik escort bayan one had ever lit his fire, like Remy was doing now. The click of the lube bottle had Finn running his hands over his chest, trying to keep away from his erection. He shivered as Remy applied the cold fluid to his entrance, rubbing the excess on the thick cock that would fill him.”You are so beautiful,” Remy whispered, lining his cock up with Finn’s entrance. The Sheriff’s dark messy locks hung into his face, his eyes so sincere, he was the beautiful one. Finn’s mouth parted, his head tilted back, when Remy covered his body, holding his knees against his chest.His lover pushed slowly into him until the head popped inside. Remy felt amazing, starting to fill Finn in all the right ways, “More.” He gasped, looking the big man in the eyes.”You sure? I don’t want to hurt you,” Remy searched his eyes, a thumb rubbing circles against his knee.”Yes…oh yes more,” Finn attempted to push back against the thick cock barely penetrating him.Remy pushed in, a few more inches, watching Finn for any signs of pain. It was too slow, agonizingly so, and Finn couldn’t wait anymore. He had waited so long for someone to look at him like this, to want him so badly. He needed Remy in a way that was indescribable.part 6″Fuck me!” Finn screamed, reaching down and pulling Remy’s hips closer. The result was satisfying, his entrance filled with his lover’s cock. Remy’s fur tickled his smooth skin and he twisted in the stronger man’s embrace.”Come here,” Remy grit, lifting Finn under the shoulders, so that he was straddling Remy’s lap on his knees, the man’s length still inside of him. His own shaft was now snuggly sandwiched between their bodies, creating a luscious friction as Remy pulled Finn’s hips up, then down. The new position hit the spot, making Finn moan in pleasure. They started a rhythm between them, their mouths magnetized in a searing kiss. Finn locked his arms around his lover’s neck, seeking the tongue that was his owns twin, and lifting his ass, feeling that thick cock slide against his inner walls.~~~Remy~~~His city boy was wild with passion, dancing on top of his cock like it was the last time he would ever do so. Not if I have a say in it, Remy thought. Their foreheads were pressed together, Finn a little higher than him, and their eyes were glued to each other. He was in love, not lust. This man was it for him and it wasn’t just the sex connecting them in this moment, it was something else; something that connected their very souls to each other. Remy was so tired of going it alone, never having anyone to share his life with. He wanted Finn to be that someone and he would bet all his material possessions that Finn felt the same.He felt tears come to his eyes at the very thought and pushed Finn onto his back, earning a loud moan from the smaller moan. Remy grabbed Finn’s hips, the flesh fitting into his large hands like the missing pieces to his puzzle. He slammed home, causing Finn to scream his name, and damn, if it didn’t sound good. Remy pistoned into Finn with all the strength he had, pouring his raw need into the other man. At some point in his frenzied rhythm, he grabbed Finn under the shoulders, slamming the smaller body into his, creating the most delicious slapping sound you had ever heard.Finn started shaking, tightening those muscles around Remy’s cock, “Jesus!” He cried out, Finn’s channel like a death grip on his member.His boy was gonna cum at any moment, and he wanted it to be good. Remy slowed his rhythm, sliding back and forth over the spot that made Finn gasp for air, then pushing in as deep as he would go. He tightened his grip on Finn with one hand, using his other to grasp the glistening cock that twitched in front of him.”Remy!” Finn bucked and screamed. His pace was excruciating, still moving inside his boy, while at the same time, milking the cum that shot from the cock in his hand. Remy pulled Finn’s pulsing erection to himself, letting the ribbons hit him in the chest, marking him as Finn’s. The smaller man’s eyes were squeezed shut, his body spent and shaking. Remy’s own release came seconds later, filling the condom that was still inside Finn.He braced his hands on either side of Finn’s head, holding his full weight off the smaller man underneath. He dropped his forehead to meet Finn’s, pausing to take some deep breath and regain his senses. His city boy stared back at him, deep brown eyes that sparkled with the reflection of the fire. Remy dropped his lips to the smaller man’s, gently tracing the outline of them with his tongue before giving Finn a soft kiss. The guy was worked, he could barely move, but a smile was permeated on his face.”You okay?” Remy nuzzled Finn’s neck, nibbling along smooth skin.Finn cleared his throat and snorted, “You could say that.”Remy lifted up to look him in the eye, confusion meddling in his thoughts. Finn laughed and pulled Remy’s head to him for another kiss, this one not so gentle. “Mmm,” Finn pulled back and licked his lips.”I see you’re just fine,” Remy bit his lip, straddling Finn, and brushing his fingertips over the bare skin underneath his hands.”Better than fine,” Finn’s voice was husky.”Let me put out this fire and then we’re going upstairs,” Remy sucked Finn’s earlobe into his mouth, running his teeth over the cartilage lightly.Finn laughed and grabbed Remy’s ass, pressing them together, so the little sneak could grind underneath him. Remy pulled away, stilling Finn’s hands from grabbing his chest with a laugh, “Hold on there tiger. Get your ass upstairs, while I do this.”The smaller man got to his knees, while Remy removed the grate to the open fire. Finn pressed himself to Remy’s back, a tongue suddenly licking along the line of his shoulder. “I said get your ass upstairs, and don’t make me tell you again city boy,” Remy growled over his shoulder, a grin apparent.”Or what?” Finn replied coyly.Remy raised a brow, “Fuck it.” He replaced the grate over the fireplace and stood, looking down at Finn on his knees. The Sheriff hauled Finn to his feet and bent down, throwing the smaller man’s waist over his shoulder and rising up again.”What the fuck?” Finn laughed then moaned when Remy smacked his tight little ass.”I said upstairs, and you wanted to know ‘or what’? This is ‘or what’,” He slapped Finn’s other cheek, heading for the stairs.”Oh yeah?” Finn giggled and smacked Remy on the ass in return. He had to grab the banister to keep from falling over. Both of them were in tears from laughing so hard by the time they reached the bedroom.Remy tossed Finn on the king sized bed, observing him in his open legged, sprawled out state. God, he was gorgeous, and that smile…mmmm. He couldn’t take being so near the guy and not touching him, so he slammed the door shut and got a running start to the bed. He pounced on Finn, causing the smaller man to laugh until he couldn’t breathe.~~~Chris~~~Chris put the last dish on the drying board, tension wracking his human form, and a heavy heart encased in his chest. Dinner had started out without a hitch, the four of them enjoying each other’s company, and more importantly the soul food Jackie had whipped up. The conversation had turned to something of a touchy nature, when Clarence commented that his late wife Sarah had made chili on cold winter nights too. That had done it, the hole that seemingly sank the ship. Both Clarence and Sy retreated into their own heads after that, leaving Chris and Jackie to change the awkward topic.Jackie was a strong personality, putting off her own saddened memories on the subject, and jumping into Sy’s life with gusto. The guy’s face had sparkled back to life, revealing his knowledge of the technological world, and his plans to put his father’s whole food supply business online in the spring. Chris wanted to share in the excitement, but he paused, thinking better of it. He didn’t want to get too close to Sy, only to lose him if Jackie and Clarence continued to dance around each other without a happy ending. Both of them were stubborn, old school, and after all these lonely years, still in mourning.Even though he and his mother weren’t all that close as of late, he wished more than anything for her guidance on the matter, or any advice from anyone at this point. He’d laced all the food with his concoction, making sure that everyone at the table got their share of love unbridled, but it seemed to have no effect. Sure they were still smiling and talking, but not like earlier, and it only seemed to be getting quieter from here. Chris felt a presence behind him. He threw the towel in the sink, and turned, bracing his backside and hands along the counter.”Hiding out?” Sy grinned, his arms folded over his chest.”Nope, just cleaning up and then probably going to bed,” Chris faked a smile. Why did he have to be so intense? This was just going to make losing him that much harder. Chris brushed past Sy, grabbed the opened bread, and went to place it in the bread box.”Hey look man, I don’t understand what I did to you,” Sy kept his voice even, irritation laced in his words. Chris faced him, the cook’s eyes were tired, and his body was exhausted.”You didn’t do anything Sy. It’s been a long day and I’m sorry if I’m not chipper, just tired is all,” Chris shrugged. Just avoid him, don’t say anything else.”You know what I think?” Sy took a step forward. “I think you’re lying.””Sy, just let it go alright? I’m gonna go get ready for bed, I’ll see ya later,” Chris ran a hand through his curly hair, turning on his heel, and walking into the living room to retrieve his pack.Clarence and Jackie were sitting stiffly on opposite sides of the worn in couch. Both transfixed on an infomercial for Love Connect, the latest in online dating. Chris wanted to slap both of them silly, they were so damn close, and he could feel it. He bent down behind the couch and grabbed his backpack from under the table there. He slowly eyed the two of them, neither acknowledged his presence, and both looked to still be breathing, well sort of. The remote screamed at him from the table and he smiled. He might be in human form, but he still possessed powers far beyond anything resembling human.Chris skimmed but a finger across the channel button, the tip glowing under his power, causing the old television screen to fizz in and out of focus. Suddenly a crisp and clear picture returned, a black and white scene taking place. Chris smirked, sidling his bag on his shoulder, and Jackie let out a sigh.”I love Casablanca,” Her eyes went wistful and Clarence spared her a longing glance.”Me too, one of the oldies, but goodies,” He smiled. They locked eyes and Jackie ducked with a blush. Clarence scooted over the middle cushion, a bear like arm stretched on the back of the sofa. This was Chris’ cue to leave. He looked up taking a step back towards the hall, only to see a wide eyed, completely freaked Sy. Chris sharply cut his eyes at the oblivious couple, and then took a deep breath, striding quickly and quietly over to Sy. The teen was in shock, no doubt having seen what Chris had just done. The cook grabbed Sy by the arm and pulled him towards the stairs.Sy was too much in shock to utter a word, following Chris obediently. He stumbled under the guidance of Chris’ strong grip and let out a shaky breath, when the curly blonde pushed him into the last bedroom on the second floor. Chris let Sy go, the severing of their connected skin, immediately made him miss the teen dearly. Sy slumped onto his bed. He put his head in his hands, his breathing becoming rapid.”Hey,” Chris breathed, guilt straining his thoughts.”Sy?” He whispered, shutting the door softly, and coming to kneel before the freaked out brunette.Sy lifted his head from his hands, tears of fear running over his cheeks, “What…wha…what are you?”The cook was overcome with grief, his fingers itching with the need to touch his other half and he did. He brought his thumbs under those sharp dark eyes, wiping away the moisture, making Sy shiver at the touch. Sy sniffled, wrapping a hand around Chris’ wrist in wonder, the immediate spark as their skin touched was completely electric. Chris pushed a hand through Sy’s hair, his other hand being held captive in the teen’s grasp.”How did you do that?” Sy murmured, “You were glowing…” He leaned into Chris’ touch, the whole situation mind boggling to them both.”Show me,” Sy continued. “I wanna see it.” Chris inhaled, and then nodded. He gently tugged his hand from Sy’s and placed himself a few feet away from the bed.”Please don’t be scared. I would never hurt you,” Chris was terrified. This moment was everything to him. His heart, his life, his body were all about to be put on display. Everything that he had to hide from the mortals would be revealed within the blink of an eye, and it could mean Sy pushing him away forever.”Are you ready?” Chris swallowed. His throat was dry and his heart was pounding. Sy stared at him, eyes wide, but nodded.Chris unclenched his hands, relaxed his back, and closed his eyes. A warm tingle emanated in his body, flowing outwards onto his skin, a sigh erupted from his lips. He heard Sy gasp and Chris opened his eyes. Sy was on his feet, words escaping him. Oh so slowly, he made a circle around Chris’ new form, a mixture of awe and utter shock weaving through his features.”Say something,” Chris pleaded, feeling ready to cry. His small wings fluttered as a hand stroked the right side, gently running over the bottom feathers. Pleasure and want filled him, his wings being very sensitive to the touch. Sy had yet to say anything, or to look him in the eye at all. Chris held fast and stayed glued to the spot. The teen placed both palms flat against Chris’ shimmering bare chest. Dark eyes looked into his blue ones.”Am I dreaming? Are you real?” Sy finally broke his silence, his tongue wet his lips.”You’re not dreaming. I’m real,” Chris circled the thick wrists on his chest with his hands, putting them on his hips. “What are you really thinking?”The large hands on his hips tightened, the pinkies straying under the red sash that topped off his white loincloth. Sy stepped into him, forcing Chris to put his hands around Sy’s shoulders, desperate for more contact.”I think you are a fantasy, something too amazing to be real,” Sy said in a daze. “You are the most beautiful person I have ever seen. Not that I’ve been out of this town much, but I’m pretty damn sure you’re up there.”Chris couldn’t help but laugh, his fingers slithered through Sy’s hair, “Do you know who I am though?”Sy looked him up and down, a grin split on his lips, “I think I have an idea. Wanna see something crazier?”Chris raised a brow and almost came on the spot, when Sy stepped out of Chris’ embrace, and pulled his shirt off.”Um, Sy…We shouldn’t be…” Chris gulped at the sculpted flesh in front of him. Sy’s abs had abs, a soft nest of dark curls dusted between his pectorals, and ran a thin line down into his jeans.Sy beamed, catching Chris’ heated stare, and turned around, “Look, left shoulder.”Chris stepped forward. Now it was his turned to be surprised, his fingers touched the intricate tattoo that Sy presented. Chris smiled, tears in eyes, when he realized what his mother had been trying to tell him. It wasn’t Jackie and Clarence that he was supposed to help. He was supposed to help himself. Tears ran down his face and he pressed a kiss to the colorful Victorian depiction of Cupid. Detailed wings, a cherubic face, and red blooming roses sat on top of a line of black curly script. His finger traced the words and a choked laugh escaped him, my love is your love.”My mom used to say it all the time. After she passed I got that. Crazy huh?” Sy chuckled nervously. Chris walked around to face him. His wings beat a few times, tickling the backs of his arms.”Not crazy, just meant to be,” Chris sniffled and pulled Sy to him. Their lips connected and the room burst into a glow of white.~~~Exactly One Year Later~~~Finn turned in a slow circle, admiring the living room in its newly repaired state. He smiled looking at the refurbished rocking chair in the corner. The chair had been his Gran’s and her memory would be preserved now, for all to enjoy. She would love this, the cheery yellow walls, the new brick fireplace, and the new sky light. It felt like a home again, somewhere to come at the end of the day and put your feet up. Finn straightened the gift basket on the coffee table, admiring his handiwork. Red roses with silver curling branches were placed in a vase next to the basket.He sighed, grabbing his parka and slipped it on, making sure his keys and cell phone were on him before he left. He took one last look at the cottage, before opening the door and heading out into the light breeze. A sleek black Range Rover was parked next to Finn’s red Jeep 4×4. A strawberry blonde woman got out of the drivers seat. A stunning white wool coat covered her body and matching pristine white leather gloves covered her hands. She smiled at Finn, who lifted a hand in greetings, and walked to meet her.”Hello, can I help you?” Finn asked, looking into her ocean blue eyes. The woman grinned.”Viola Jones, we talked on the phone,” she offered a hand. Finn shook the hand offered and chuckled, a calm settling over his nerves.”Ah yes, the realtor. Forgive me, it’s been a long day,” He laughed.”I’m sure it has. Are you all packed up then?” Viola gestured to the brand new Jeep.”Yea, I am,” Finn nodded, still saddened by leaving behind his new project c***d. The cottage had taken up all his weekends and spare evenings for the past few months, and it was hard to let go. “On to better things right?””Most definitely,” Viola stepped forward and looked Finn dead in the eye. “Don’t be sad darling. I am positive the new owners will cherish this place as much as you have. Besides, great things are ahead, you have many blessings to look forward to.”Finn bit his lip, then grinned, “You’re right. Let’s get this over with shall we?” Finn fished the keys out of his pocket, handing them over to Viola.Viola laid the key ring on the hood of her car and pulled a few papers from inside of her jacket, along with a pen, “Just two signatures and everything will be finalized.”He bent over the hood, smoothing out the documents, signing away his Gran’s cottage to the new owners. The snow made his boots squeak as he twisted his toes into the ground out of nervousness. Once it was done, a strange serenity washed over him, freedom from his past on the horizon.”All done,” He clicked the pen and handed it to Viola, along with the documents.”I wish you the very best Finn,” She shook his hand one more time, before stepping back and giving him a wink.”And to you Viola. Thanks for all your help, even if it was last minute,” He nodded and gave her a quick wave. She waved back and Finn got into his Jeep. He put in into reverse and backed around, to face the long wooded drive. A tear fell from his eye as he drove away from the last thing that connected him to his old life.~~~~~~Jackie’s was packed to the walls with patrons. This year the ceiling had been strung up with pink, red, and white streamers. Victorian Valentine’s with hearts and cupids were spaced out on glittering strings, twisting under the air flow above the diners. A line wound around the front, all waiting to have a go at the long glass case full of fresh baked treats. It took four high school girls to man the counter, bustling out pink boxes like they were going out of style.Remy sat back in his regular booth, sipping some fancy new fluff coffee that Jackie insisted he test out. Apparently it was all the rage in the city, but he was just a black with sugar kind of guy, or Chai of course. He had to admit, he did sort of like the foam stuff on top, other than that though, the stuff was just too fancy. Remy crossed his leg over his knee, watching the door and all the people milling in and out. The bell kept chiming, the small noise keeping Remy on the lookout, tense and about out of his mind in anticipation.He glanced over at the people in the two tables in front of him. He smiled and nodded to them. Two women squealed and wiggled their brows at him. Remy rolled his eyes, chuckling, and set down his city coffee. He knew he looked very out of place in his tux, but everyone knew what today was and what was going to happen. Jackie burst out of the kitchen, looking over at him, and throwing her hands up in the air. She was wearing a red dress with a sparkly black cardigan, her hair twisted up into an unusually neat bun.”Well? You heard anything yet?” She put her hands on her hips, her face a mixture of stress and high energy.”No. Should be any minute now though,” Remy started to shake his foot. He was slowly starting to become a mess, jitters getting the best of him.”Okay alright, you look about ready to combust. I’ll stop hassling you, but I wanna know the minute that boy gets here, you all hear me,” Jackie pointed her finger around at the two tables nearest Remy, and received a bunch of laughs and ‘yes ma’ams’.the last part “Good. I’ll go update the boys, they’re dyin back there,” Jackie smiled, a youthful glow to her skin. She jumped, then giggled as Clarence snaked his big arms around her waist.”She botherin’ you again? Sweetheart I done told you a hundred times to leave this boy alone,” He kissed the top of her head.”I’m just excited is all,” She turned in his arms and gave him a kiss on the lips. “Come on, let’s feed the masses.” She laughed, and dragged a grinning Clarence behind her.The bell chimed and time stood still. Finn appeared in the doorway, a vase of vivid white roses in his hands. He smiled and handed it to the hostess, who beamed and set them on top of the display. Finn shrugged out of his coat and Remy felt like he would have a panic attack. He rose from his seat, smoothing out his tuxedo jacket, waiting for the love of his life to notice. Finn turned his brown eyes in Remy’s direction, completely surprised. He wandered over, taking his time, a blazing smile on his lips.”What in the world is this?” Finn laughed, his eyes dazzling. He looked to the other tables, “And what are you guys doing here? Oh my god, hey Susan,” Finn hugged Remy’s oldest sister tightly.”Hey sweetie,” She kissed him on the cheek, but turned him back to Remy, who shook his hands out.”Okay, what is going on? Why are you wearing a tux? I mean not that you don’t look amazing, but…I don’t get it,” Finn looked around, finally noticing all the people in the diner going quiet and staring. Jackie, Clarence and the boys were off to the side, smiling like idiots. Everyone knew, everyone but Finn that is. Remy took a deep breath and got down on one knee. Finn gasped and covered his mouth in shock, Remy capturing his other hand.”One year ago, I was all ready to give up on finding that special someone to spend my life with. As luck would have it though, I wasn’t meant to be alone, and fate sent you to me. From the minute I saw you sitting in that booth,” Remy glanced over at the booth to his side, “I knew you were it for me. You were the most beautiful man I had ever laid eyes on and the more time I spent with you, the more I discovered how beautiful your heart was too. Every day since then has been nothing but pleasure being at your side, and I wouldn’t know the first thing about being without you now. I trust you, I respect you, and I love you with all my heart. Will you marry me Finn Caldwell?” Remy pulled the red velvet box out of his jacket pocket, snapping it open for Finn to see.Finn was in tears, looking from Remy to the thin platinum band nestled inside the velvet box, “Yes.” He cried and the entire diner erupted in cheers. Remy slipped the ring onto his boy’s finger and swept him off the ground in a bone crushing hug. “I love you so much,” He choked up against Finn’s neck.Finn slipped back to the floor, pulling Remy’s lips to his, earning another round of cheers and cat calls from the diners, “I love you too. Happy Valentines Day,” He stepped back and grinned.Remy pulled him close, settling his forehead against Finn’s, “Coming around to the hallmark holiday huh?””I think I could get used to this,” Finn softly kissed Remy.”Well I just put a ring on it, so you’re gonna have to,” Remy laughed and kissed Finn harder, much to the delight of the crowd.~~~~~~Chris parked the truck in front of the cottage. He pulled the keys from the ignition and turned to Sy in the passenger seat. They stared at each other for a minute, before racing to unbuckle their seatbelts and get to the front door first. Sy won, slamming the front door open, and almost getting tackled by Chris. The bigger teen laughed, pulling his partner close, snuggling him against his chest.”Welcome home,” Sy kicked the door shut, rubbing his hands up and down Chris’ chest.”You can’t wait five seconds to see the bedroom?” Chris playfully whined, squirming out of the bigger man’s reach, and running with a giggle to bedroom.”Oh you’re on lover boy. I’m gonna find you and make your wings curl,” Sy taunted with a grin, hopping on one foot as he undid his boot and then kicked off the other. He spotted the basket and roses on the table. Sy stepped closer, inspecting the goodies arranged neatly on display. Finn had definitely been here today, he laughed as he grabbed the cinnamon flavored lube and a bottle of champagne. Hell yea.He walked to the back of the cottage, nudging the partially opened door wide, and he almost dropped the glass bottle in his hand. Chris was completely naked, shimmering in the dimming light, his body glowing with power, and his wings flapping madly. His Cupid kneeled on the large bed, waiting for Sy to approach. A moan escaped the curly blonde’s lips as he stroked himself, his blue eyes transfixed on Sy.”Baby, please…” Cupid bit his lip and tossed his curls back, his neck exposed to Sy.”Hot damn, you are fucking sexy.” Sy ripped his shirt off, his pants whisked away, and his briefs went somewhere, but he didn’t really care. His own body responded to his partners, the glowing starting already. Sy grabbed the lube from the floor where he dropped it and crawled onto the bed.”Tell me how want it,” Sy bit the back of Chris’s neck teasingly, his ripped chest rubbing against soft silky wings.”Like this, oh…” Cupid was so turned on and glowing like a bonfire, he fell to his hands and knees, his ass in the air for Sy.Sy understood Cupid’s need; they fed off their love for each other, always hot and raring to go. He didn’t hesitate, spreading Cupid’s cheeks apart, his wet tongue circling the little rosebud before him.”Sy…” Cupid moaned, pushing back against his lover’s tongue. He was so horny and wanted nothing more than to have Sy buried deep within him.Sy replaced his tongue with two fingers, knowing his baby liked it rough. He shoved them deep inside, listening to Chris moan. Sy moved up the winged man’s body, nipping at the base of his wings, causing them to flutter rapidly. Chris was more than ready.”Gonna fuck you good baby,” Sy promised, pulling his partner’s back to his chest.”Ah yea, give it to me,” Cupid grabbed his own cock.Sy batted his boy’s hand away, squeezing a few drops of the cinnamon flavored lube on Chris. He could already feel it heating up in his hand as he stroked Chris a few times. He was going to have to thank Finn later for the house warming gift…no pun intended. Sy laughed and pushed Chris onto his hands and knees again.”What is that Sy? It’s so warm, it feels like….dear Gods…what…” Chris bucked as Sy spread the lube up and down his ass, making sure he swirled it thoroughly over Cupids tight hole. After his own cock was slick and tingling, he bent down and tasted the cinnamon flavored ass that he loved so much.”Oh fuck!” Cupid screamed. The heat from the liquid was now tingling. His cock was throbbing and Sy’s tongue was pure ecstasy. “In me, please oh please Sy.”Sy glanced up and gave Chris a good smack on the ass, before sheathing himself completely within his lover’s hot channel. They both glowed bright, a sign of immortal pleasure, the love of the Gods. Sy pulled back and pushed back in, knowing Chris never would experience any unease or pain from their coupling, and he could be as rough as he wanted. Hell, Chris loved it rough, and truthfully so did Sy.”So good, yea fuck yourself on my cock,” Sy glided a hand down the middle of Chris’ back as his boy pounded back against his cock, moaning like a he was singing his own tune.Chris whined and whimpered, Sy got the hint, and grabbed his hips forcefully, “I got you baby,” Sy covered Cupid’s back with his chest and started to pound away. Chris was so damn gorgeous, especially in their bed, in their brand new home. This was his partner, his mate forever, his eternal love, and Sy could have never asked for anything more.He poured his love into every thrust, every squeeze, every bite and lick that he gave to Chris. His lover in turn was screaming his name, ripping into the sheets in his pleasure. It was the best Valentine’s Day gift he had ever received. Sy reached underneath Chris and squeezed his hard shaft, sliding up and down, and feeling the warm lube tingle in his hand.”Come for me,” Sy commanded and Chris let out one more long high-pitched scream, cum flooding Sy’s hand.The screaming brought Sy over the edge, bottoming out inside his boy and filling his ass with his seed. The room burst into white light, blinding them both temporarily, before it faded into the dim natural lighting of the evening. They both collapsed onto their sides. Their breathing was harsh, but they clung to each other, still reeling from the intense release.”My love,” Cupid turned and whispered to Sy.”Is your love,” Sy bent down and kissed his mate.~~~~~~Their hands were clasped together as Remy rocked into Finn from above, a slow gentle thrusting as they looked into each other’s eyes. Over the past year they had made love so many times, they had lost count, but this time was different. This was a sealing of their commitment to each other, an unspoken promise between them.Remy tried to control his breathing and his slow movements, the need to pick up the pace and lose control raging inside of him, but he didn’t want this to end so quickly. Finn was lost in Remy’s body, his fiancé sliding in and out him, stroking deliberately over his prostate, bringing him to closer to the edge.He moaned; the sound bouncing around his head. His body temperature rose, sweat beaded on his brow, and he pulled Remy closer. The angle of the thick cock inside of him changed, jabbing against his hotspot, making him scream.”REMY!” He let go of the bigger man’s hands, grasping on his fiancés shoulders, as Remy started to lose control.Remy was consumed by Finn, he couldn’t get enough of him, and his mind was trying to find a way to get closer, deeper, crawl under his boy’s skin to feel more of him. His lips scorched over every possible inch of skin he could reach, licking and kissing, tasting his lover completely. Remy was close and he knew Finn was too.”I love you baby,” He murmured, before he came, releasing himself deep within his lover. He pulled back to watch Finn fall off the edge, the man’s face bunched in extreme pleasure, then released into pure bliss and awe as his cock drained between them. He was angelic, his dark eyes glazed with satisfaction and love.Finn’s hands were relaxed above his head, the platinum ring glinting on his finger. A need to cry out of joy, made Remy bury his face in Finn’s chest, tears slicking his cheeks. Fingers combed through his hair, comforting the big man.”I love you too,” Finn murmured. “But you can’t break down every time we have sex. You might just lose your he-man status down at the station. The boys would just have a field day with that…” Finn started to laugh and Remy raised his head and wiped his eyes.”You wouldn’t dare…” He growled, a smile on his lips.”Oh I just might,” Finn giggled and Remy attacked his mouth.Leaving Finn breathless, Remy sat up, straddling Finn’s hips in all his glory. Finn bit his lip and ran his hands down his man’s furry chest.”How about now?” Remy narrowed his eyes, rubbing Finn’s release over his chest, slipping a finger into his mouth to taste him.”Maybe I’ll hold off…” Finn swallowed.”Yeah maybe you will,” Remy bent down, sharing the taste of Finn on his tongue.Their faces were inches apart from each other as Remy stroked the side of Finn’s face, “Happy Valentine’s Day baby.”Finn laughed, a beaming smile on his face. He put his arms around his lover’s neck, “Happy Valentine’s Day my love.”~~~FIN~~~
