The drive to one of our favorite camping spots took about two hours to get there. I could tell right off the bat that something was on Mason's mind. I didn't question him, I knew that he would come clean at some point. After about an hour of being at the lake. We had three tents set up and it was now dark. We barbequed chicken and I started a fire. "Hey man, what's up?" Marcus asked Mason. You could tell it though Mason off some.
"What do you mean?" He asked Marcus.
"I know the look, Mason. What's up?" Marcus said. I of course just sat there quietly watching them.
"It's really nothing, just bull crap with Jill and Crystal. Nothing I cant handle. I do however want to talk with the two of you." Both Marcus and I looked up at Mason.
"Should I be worried?" I asked. Mason smiled at me.
"Candace, I now you know how Marcus and I feel about you. I also saw just how horrified you got when you heard the rumor about the three of us, but I dont think that Marcus and I know how you feel about everything. I know you have kissed us both and I know the time you have spent with us. I need to know how you feel? If you even feel anything." I looked as both of them were watching me and both were wanting answers. I guess I was just an asshole. Because I had no answers. I still felt the same about them both. Yes, my feelings are a little different, but I couldn't say if I liked one more then the other. Because it wasn't true. I liked them the same.
"Candace, I need for you to understand that you can share with us anything that's on your mind. If you only have feelings for one of us, it's okay. If you dont have those kinds of feelings for us, it's okay." Marcus said.
"Okay, but what if my feelings are the same for both of you?" I asked shyly.
"But what does that mean? What kind of feelings?" Mason asked.
"More than friends," I said and looked away from their eyes. I stood up and started to pace a little. "The truth is that I care about you both in the same way. I dont love one of you more than the other and now I'm more too curious to pick one of you over the other. I'm sorry, I dont mean to be selfish about this but I can't help how I feel." I stood there and waited for them to lay into me, but it was quiet. A little too quiet. I looked over at them and they were only looking at each other. I sat back down and waited for them to tell me what a shitty person I was.
"Okay then date us both," Mason said. I shook my head and looked over at him. Even Marcus looked at him funny. "I didn't mean for you to be with us both, but maybe you just need time with us both. In a way that's not just friendship. Date us both, give us both time with you, in that way, and then maybe it will allow you to figure out what it is that you want." Then I saw Marcus shrug his shoulders.
"I have to agree with him Cans," Marcus said.
"I do however want to say this," Mason spoke up. "I'm not willing to give either of you up. The first time this becomes a problem between us, and I mean something between the three of us. Not something outside. I will step away. I would rather have you all as a friend. Then nothing at all. This has been weighing heavily on my mind lately. You two are the only real things I have in my life." Marcus smiled at him and then placed his hands over his heart.
"I love you, bro," Marcus said with sarcasm.
"Shut up," I said rolling my eyes and smiling.
"I completely understand Mason. That's been the biggest worry on my mind." We both looked sat Marcus.
"What? You both know it's going to be me she picks. I'm not worried at all." He said and sat back with his hands behind his head. Both Mason and I just shook our heads and laugh. I stood up and started to walk out towards the lake. The guys sat back at the camp and continued to talk. I looked out at the inviting water. Mason was right, there was too much at stake here, and I felt the same way about losing them. They meant so much to me, but now I was too involved and wanted more. The only problem was I wanted it from both of them. I didn't have one I wanted more than the other. Giving me the chance to date them both was only going to make it that much tougher on me. I took my shirt off and then my shorts. I stood there in nothing but my bra and panties. I took one look over my shoulder and I now had the attention of both of them. I just smiled and ran out into the water.
I came up and heard others splashing around me. I knew they were in the water with me now. I looked at both of them looking back at me. "Let's try and have fun this weekend and let the other shit go for now?" I said to them and they both nodded their heads at me. That's when I felt an arm go around my waist and I was pulled into Marcus's arms. I wrapped my arms around his neck as I moved onto his back. I wrapped my legs around his waist.
"Hold on." He said as he took off swimming. Mason followed us. I was passed back and forth between them. We were acting like three carefree teenagers. Teenagers with not a care in the world. It felt so good to be this way. Marcus wasn't worried about his family. Mason wasn't worrying about his future and I wasn't worried about who I was in love with. We were just the best of friends enjoying our young lives. That was until I felt his lips on mine. Marcus was kissing me in front of Mason. I pulled away and looked at them both. Neither one of them seemed to be fazed. Then Mason swam closer to me and his lips came to mine. My head was clouded with all sorts of judgment. What did this mean?
The next thing I knew, I was laying down on a towel. Between Mason and Marcus. Both of them were touching and kissing me. None of us had said any words and none of us stop what we were doing. I felt funny but at the same time. I didn't want it to stop. I never in my wildest dreams thought about being with them both at the same time. I never thought about having them both belong to me. Could I really do something like this? Could they even do something like this? It didn't go any further than kissing and some touching, but I know I went to bed with nothing but naughty thoughts about the two of them. My dreams, however, were full of loss. The two of them fighting and I end up without either of them. That hurt my heart, but when I opened my eyes that next morning. I had Marcus on my left and Mason on my right. Both fast asleep and both holding me.
