1) Ready for college
It was a cold winter night in a small town named Zenneth. The room in a small cottage was comparatively warm because of the dimly lit fireplace. The only sound coming from the room was of heavy breathing, moaning and grunting as the two lovers make love, celebrating their reunion after four painful months of separation.
“Aaannnhhhh” a loud moan erupted from the younger male who held on to his lover’s neck as he was pounded continuously, getting hit on the prostate again and again. The bed rocked back and forth with the force that the older male was using. The younger could only squirm under him as tears streaked down his cheeks with the extreme pleasure he was receiving.
“I- I- ahhh…” he couldn’t complete his sentence as the pleasure became too much for him. His back arched, eyes rolled back and he came undone underneath his lover.
“Baby…” the older male grunted as his thrusts became uneven, his eyes locked on his lover whose flushed cheeks and swollen lips were tempting him to abuse them again. He stilled and finally came inside the younger who was a sobbing mess.
They remain in the same position, locked in each other’s arms, the older still inside his lover, hovering over him. They took their time to get their breathing under control. The older male finally pulled out of his lover, and went to the bathroom after pecking his forehead.
He cleaned himself up and then came out to clean the boy who was lying in the bed, still dazed. Both of cuddled up in bed after getting dressed in warm clothes, under the blankets.
Dean Wongsuwan, the second youngest and one of the heirs of the Wongsuwan Empire, is here, in Zenneth, to pick up his lover, Keit Wadisaran.
Keit’s parents handle the Wongsuwan’s charity home for the orphans and the elderly and are one of their most trusted employees. Dean often visits the town with his parents to meet the new additions in their charity home.
They both are childhood friends turned lovers. Keit is a year younger than Dean.
Dean was in grade 11 when he decided to confess his feelings for Keit and propose him. He was lucky that Keit reciprocated his feelings and accepted his proposal and became his boyfriend.
Keit’s parents know that their son is gay and have never objected his relationship with Dean. Dean’s parents however, are a different story. Both the lovers are well aware that there will be resistance from their side but to what extent, no one knows.
Dean has decided to come out to his parents and tell them that he is gay and very much in love with Keit, after his graduation. They both hope and pray that their relationship lasts forever but they are still young and decide to be sure of everything before coming out in front of the world.
Dean studies at Scientia University in the faculty of engineering. Keit will also be entering the same university in the same faculty and has opted Computer Science and Engineering, same as Dean.
It is not easy to get the admission in the prestigious Scientia University. Every student has to give a test and the ones who are shortlisted enter the advanced level. After clearing that exam, you are eligible to become the part of the university. The University fees is not much, making it easy for all the capable and deserving students to get a seat without worrying about their financial condition.
Dean will now be entering his second year of engineering and will be the immediate senior of Keit.
Bright light hit Keit’s eyes as he peeked them open, a huff leaving his lips as he stretched on bed, his hand coming in contact with his lover who was spooning him from behind and still very much asleep.
He turned around in his hold and stared at Dean’s sleeping face, smiling softly.
We will finally live together.
He bit his lips to stop himself from squealing at his thought. He will go to college with his love and they will stay together. Just the thought gives him butterflies in his stomach.
“You’re up early.” A deep voice brings him out of his train of thoughts. He blushed and nuzzled Dean’s neck as his morning voice always manages to make him flustered. Well, everything about Dean makes him flustered. He doesn’t know what good deeds he did in his previous life to get him as his boyfriend.
A chuckle escapes Dean’s lips at his lover’s actions and he pulled Keit closer to him. He caressed his hair and then planted a soft kiss on them.
“I wanna stay here.” Keit mumbled, face still pressed in Dean’s neck as he throws his leg over him to get impossibly closer to him.
“I want to stay here too but we have to get up and get going to your house. We’ll leave for the Uni after breakfast.” Dean slowly gets up, taking a reluctant Keit with him who already started missing the cocoon of warm blanket around him.
Dean secured Keit’s legs around his waist and arms around his neck and walked towards his car parked outside the beautiful cottage. Keit whined when he was deposited in the passenger side of the car whereas Dean only chuckled. Last night Dean picked him up from his home and took him to the cottage to spend some quality time with him.
This cottage also belongs to the Wongsuwans so it was easy for Dean to make all the arrangements for the special night with his boyfriend.
The whole ride, Keit kept on chattering about the good times they will have in college. Dean smiled at his enthusiasm and hoped everything will go well. He knows their time in college will be interesting. Very, very interesting.
He pulled over the car at the side of Keit’s house as the mini truck was parked in front of the house in which Keit’s belongings were being loaded and his mom came rushing out with a teasing smile on her face.
“The love birds finally decide to fly back home.” She says making Keit groan and hide his face in Dean’s arm. She was a petite woman with a glowing fair skin. Keit inherited the skin color from his mother as his father has wheatish skin tone. His father was out of town for a week so he will not be able to see of their son. He was not present that is why Dean was able to convince Keit’s mom to let him take her son somewhere with him for a day.
Dean politely greeted her and stepped inside the house after her, with Keit still clinging to his arm.
“You kids go and freshen up. I will prepare the breakfast.” Keit’s mom says and gets herself busy in the kitchen.
Dean and Keit make their way to the bedroom and Keit immediately plops down on the bed. Dean shakes his head and takes his jacket off followed by his Tee-Shirt giving Keit the clear view of his fully sculpted torso. Keit props up on his elbows and drools at the sight of his oh so handsome boyfriend.
Sunlight adding to the beauty of his honey tanned skin, his muscled flexing as he pulls the Tee-shirt over his head. And his six pack abs, oh god his abs, making Keit go crazy.
“You’re drooling, baby.” Dean teases him which makes the smaller boy blush. His hands automatically reached for his mouth to check if he was actually drooling or not. He glared at his smirking boyfriend and turns around, burying his face in the pillow.
“Now, that is a clear invitation. Do you not want us to get ready so we can have some breakfast?” Dean says in a dramatic voice, staring at his boyfriend’s perky butt which makes Keit turn around instantly and throw the pillow at Dean who dodges it just in time.
Dean freshens up leaving a flustered Keit outside. While Dean is in the bathroom, Keit takes in his room for one last time. He’s gonna miss this place a lot. He looks at the photo frames decorated on the wall in front of the bed and a smile made its way on his lips. He decorated this wall with his dad and they argued a lot that day about the pattern in which the photos will be arranged. He won at the end because his dad always listens to him.
Ahh, he is very much pampered.
The combination of light blue and white on these walls always had a soothing effect on him. The small sofa at the side of the room had stuff toys scattered all over it gifted by his parents and Dean. He wants to take all of them with him but he doesn’t want the students bullying him over it and Dean also told him to leave these toys at home.
The bathroom door creaks open and Dean comes out with a towel wrapped around his waist and tells Keit to go and take a shower. He looked at him wide eyed, his face flushed a beautiful shade of red. Dean smirked and slowly made his way towards the bed and only stopped when his face was just a few inches away from Keit’s.
He stared at the shiny doe eyes of his boyfriend with so much intensity that made Keit avert his gaze somewhere else. Dean loves his eyes. His eyes are pure black in color and it seems that they sparkle with innocence all the time. He leans closer to his shy lover and softly whispers
“Just go take a bath already.” He then bursts out laughing at Keit’s dumbstruck expression.
“You’re so bad!” Keit whines and pushes away him before running towards the bathroom.
Dean gets dressed and goes down to help Keit’s mom while Keit does his morning routine. Dean left few of his clothes in Keit’s room because he used to visit him a lot. It was the first time they were separated for four months as he was very busy in college and Keit had his class twelfth examinations.
They have a hearty breakfast, or more like Keit has a hearty breakfast while his boyfriend and mother chatted about the college and his mom asking Dean to take care of him.
“Take care of his diet too. I think it’s time for him to join the gym.” His mother says, obviously teasing him. Keit and gym do not belong in the same sentence.
“If he wants to, then of course.” Dean replies and ruffles his pouting boyfriend’s hair.
“No, I don’t want to.” Keit replies instantly which makes his mother laugh.
“No worries, baby. I like the chubby you.” Dean whispers in his ear which makes him blush. The woman looked at the two young men and smiled. Her son is lucky. She sent a silent prayer to the heaven to keep their love intact forever.
She cleared her throat which brought the couple out of their flirting game.
“I think it’s time to go now.” Dean said and picked up the small bag in which he kept some snacks to eat on the way. He knows Keit will start whining if he doesn’t get any snacks.
“Bye mom.” Keit says and hugs her tight, trying hard not to cry. His whole life he has been pampered by his parents. Now, he was about to step into a whole new world and that scared him a little but he was sure that Dean will take care of him.
“Take care, sweetie. Call mom every day, okay. Have proper meals and try to avoid junk food. And don’t go partying all night over there. Study hard and make us proud. Do visit from time to time.” His mom says as she barely manages not to sob in front of the kids. Her baby boy was going away from her sight and it was hurting her. it was hard for her to let him go to a new place but she has to do it for his future. She can’t keep him wrapped in cotton forever.
“You take care of yourself and dad too. I will miss you both so much.” Keit said and sniffled. Dean’s eyes softened at the exchange between mother and son.
“I will take care of him for you.” He says which made her smile.
“I know you will.” She says and pecks her son’s forehead and hugs Dean.
Both the boys drive away with the mini truck following them.
“Don’t forget to take bathroom breaks!” his mom yells from outside.
“Mom!” Keit whines and hides his face with both his hands while Dean openly laughs.
“Don’t worry baby, we will take bathroom breaks.” Dean teases him and earns an elbow on his stomach.
“How far is it?” Keit whined.
“It’s a twelve-hour drive, baby. We have been on the road for just two hours and you are already whining.” Dean looks at him briefly before concentrating back on the road.
“I’m not whining. I just asked a simple question.” Keit pouted. Dean made sure not to look at his cute lover’s direction or he will be compelled to pull over and have his way with him.
Hey, it’s not his fault. No one can resist Keit’s pout.
Dean puts his hand over his pouting boyfriend’s thigh and squeezed it gently. He can’t keep his hands off of him for a long time. How will he stop himself in college? He doesn’t know.
“Keit, you know that we cannot tell anyone about us, right?” Dean asks the most hated question, his hand not leaving Keit’s thigh, patiently waiting for his reaction.
“Yes.” Keit mutters, his mood dimmed down. Of course, he knows he cannot tell anyone about their relationship. They have had this conversation a thousand times.
He is not happy with this but he understands why Dean asks him to hide their relationship.
Five years ago, a boy who was openly gay entered Scientia University. He revealed that he is gay in the freshers welcoming party. That was the biggest mistake he made. His life became a nightmare after that. Everyone boycotted him. He was bullied in his dorm. It got so bad that he lost his mental stability. Some say that he was severely assaulted. He could not complete his studies and was admitted in a mental rehabilitation center.
Dean felt Keit tense up so he held his hand, entwining their fingers together and bringing their joined hands towards his lips and planted a kiss at the back of Keit’s hand.
“I will not let anything happen to you.” He said and squeezed their joined hands.
“I know.” Keit gave him a bright smile, trying to lighten up the mood.
“Ohm will be there too?” Keit asks, changing the subject.
“Ahh, yes. He will be there.”
Ohm Saengarun is Dean’s best friend and he is also a student of Scientia University. He knows all about Keit and Dean and is in very good terms with Keit.
It has been five hours and Keit has started squirming on his seat. Dean glanced at him and saw his distressed face.
“Are you alright?” he asks to which Keit squeaks a small yes. Dean mumbles a fake liar under his breath which results in him getting pinched by Keit.
Dean pulls over at a restaurant and Keit hurriedly exits the car and runs towards the restroom. Dean openly laughs and then walks towards the mini truck that carried their necessities and asks the two men to have lunch. He will pay for them, obviously.
He already ordered the food when Keit came back from the restroom. Dean ruffled his hair and asked him to take any table and he also went to the restroom. When he came back, the food was already served. He ordered two South Indian Thali which consists of Idli Sambhar and Vada along with Naariyal Chutney (Coconut Chutney).
Both of them love south Indian food. Keit was beaming like a happy kid and waited for Dean to join him. Dean sits beside him and kisses his cheeks.
“Why so shy? You could’ve just asked me to make a stop.” Dean says and looks at Keit’s flushed face intently.
“The food is getting cold, lets eat.” Keit says, ignoring Dean’s question. A peck is dropped on his lips and he looks up at Dean in shock who got himself busy eating as if he didn’t just kiss him publicly.
“Ugh, I’m so tired.” Keit groans and plops down on the bed of his new dorm room.
“Yeah, it must be so tiresome for you. Driving twelve hours and then setting up the room.” Dean says sarcastically and plops down beside Keit who laughed at his statement. They both were lying on the bed facing each other. Dean extends his hand and pulls Keit closer to him who readily snuggles into him and buries his face in his neck.
Dean loves the difference in their height and body build. Keit is so small compared to him. Okay, not so small but still he can tower over him and make him look like a little deer caught in the clutch of a big Tiger.
“I love you.” Keit mumbles in his neck which makes Dean tighten his hold on him.
“I love you too, baby.” Dean says and drops a sweet kiss on his lover’s hair.
For a few moments no one spoke. They just basked in the presence of each other.
“We’ll be able to see each other daily.” Keit says giddily and looks up at Dean.
“Yes, baby.” Dean says and kisses his lips.
“Session starts in one week.” Keit nods and then asks the question that was bugging him for so long.
“Why did we arrive one week prior? I mean, we could’ve come a day before the session starts.” He asks. Dean sighs but answers his question.
“All the students will come two days before the session starts. Today’s day is over. We have four days that I can spend with you without worrying about anyone finding about us. I will show you the campus and everything.” He explains.
“Oh, okay.” Keit says and pecks Dean’s neck.
“Baby, If I ever say anything to you at college, please don’t take it to heart. Seniors here do tease their juniors sometimes. It’s nothing serious. I have to treat you the same as other juniors.” Dean pleads, his eyes show that he is not happy with the arrangement either but this has to happen.
“I understand, Dean.” Keit says and smiles softly.
“You are the best.” Maverick says and takes Keit’s lips in a sweet kiss. One thing leads to another and they both end up making love almost all night.
They both slept until noon. Dean decides to take Keit to his favorite food place after they both got ready.
It was a pizza place in the college campus and heaven for Keit.
Pro tip: If Keit ever gets angry, just treat him with a pizza. He will choose pizza over anything.
The pizza place was small and cozy. It had a mild fragrance of pizza surrounding it that made Keit drool already.
“They make the best pizza. You will love it.” Dean says.
“I’m already loving it!” Keit replies excitedly and barely stops himself from skipping in happiness. They both make their way to the counter to order.
A girl of their age or maybe a little older greets them with a wide smile. She had short auburn hair and was as fair as Snow White. Okay, okay, not as fair as Snow White but still, pretty fair.
“Oh My God, the handsome hunk is back! And who is this cutie next to you?” The girl squeals, making Keit blush and Dean chuckled at her enthusiasm.
“Hi, Millie. Nice to see you too. This is Keit, my friend from back home and now my junior. Keit, meet Millie.” He introduces both of them. Keit greets her happily and starts scanning the menu. Subconsciously, Dean’s hand was placed on Keit’s shoulder and slowly slid down towards his waist, pulling him closer. This little action was not missed by Millie.
Dean looked at Keit lovingly as he babbled about having a cheese burst and wondering which side dish to order. His gaze shifted towards Millie who was looking at him with a shocked expression which then turned into a smirk. He pulled his arm away from Keit’s waist realizing what he has just done.
Damn, Dean! You can’t keep your hands off of Keit for a few minutes, how the hell will you survive four years? He scolded himself mentally.
They both ordered veggie loaded pizzas with extra cheese and one bright citrus salad just to give them self-satisfaction of adding something healthy to their diet and a bottle of coke.
Dean still manages his amazing body even after eating all this. How? Keit will never know. Maybe he is naturally gifted.
They both have their lunch, happily chatting with each other. It was just the two of them present so Dean did not need to worry about anyone seeing them together.
Keit gets to have one of the best pizzas he ever had in life and that too, with Dean, he wants nothing else. He is so happy!
Dean gets up to pay and is face to face with Millie who is wiggling her eyebrows at him.
“What is it?” he asks her, raising his eyebrow.
“So, he is the one who kept you out of the clutches of all the pretty ladies in the campus.” She says in a teasing tone.
“What are you talking about?” he feigns confusion.
“Oh, cut it out. I know he is your lover.” She says, calling out his act.
“Oh really? How so?” Dean asks. He knows their cover is blown.
“Dude, please, you literally had hearts shooting out of your eyes when you look at him!” she exclaims making Dean sigh.
“Listen. Please don’t tell anyone about this. It will create problem for both of us.” He requests and Millie looks at him in understanding as her eyes which earlier had a teasing glint, soften.
“Of course.” She says and smiles at him. Dean pays for the food and leaves with Keit.
Damn, he already blew their cover in front of Millie! At this rate, the entire college will know about them in just one day. He really needs to control himself around Keit.
The irony is, he was holding hands with Keit when he was thinking about controlling himself around him.
“Are you alright?” Keit asks him to which he says yes and smiles reassuringly at him. Keit does not buy that but decides to let it go for the moment and continues to chatter about the beautiful campus and of course, the mouth-watering pizza they just had.
Dean had so many things going on in his mind. He really hoped and prayed that Keit will be able to handle all the stress and the different types of people he will meet here. Everyone is so kind in Zenneth, people barely fight but here everything is about status, respect and fear. He learned it when it was his first day, a year back.
He was dreading Keit’s reaction when he finds out what kind of life he had in the college. Dean was a real gentleman when with Keit or family or anyone generally but here, in college, things were a little different. Hopefully these four years will make Keit a stronger and better man.
He was brought out of his thoughts when Keit tugged at his shirt and looked up at him with a bright smile melting his heart.
“I think I will have the best first day of college ever!”
