The next morning John woke to the annoying buzzing of the alarm clock. He reached for Jacob, but the space beside him was empty. He frowned, ‘Where is he?’ he thought.
Turing off the alarm he started to get ready for the day. He took a shower and dressed. He checked once more for Jacob in the bedroom, he still wasn’t there.
He crossed the living room into the den, Bryn lay on the couch watching TV.
"Hey Bryn have you seen…" John started.
"On the back porch with Mike." came the answer, Bryn not taking his eyes off the television. "They’re talking about last night. Apparently Jake heard a little bit, he got worried. Don’t go out there just yet."
"Is he mad?" John asked.
"Who? Jake? No, he just.. I don’t really know. But he isn’t mad. Scared maybe." Bryn replied
"Scared? Of what? I’ve already told him that I wouldn’t leave him for anything. I’m going out there." John started to leave the den. Bryn called for him but John ignored him.
He wasn’t mad, just worried about Jacob. He didn’t want to think that Jacob was too scared to talk to him about something. He had a feeling Bryn was hiding something.
"I know he said he wouldn’t leave me Mike, but I don’t want him to feel like he has to stay with me out of sympathy." Jacob said.
"He isn’t with you for sympathy Jake, he loves you. He was just worried about you cause when you told him what Brad said to you it upset him. He would die for you if he had the chance." Michael replied.
"But now he knows that I lied to him about him being my first. Wouldn’t that make someone believe that everything their lover said to them was a lie if they lied about something like that?" Jacob said disappointed.
"Jake, I already told you, until you give yourself to someone willingly you’re still a virgin. You didn’t give yourself willingly to Brad but you did John. So technically he was your first. You shouldn’t let anyone tell you different. Besides, what does anyone else know? You know how you felt that night with John and that’s what really matters doesn’t it?" Michael said with a stern tone.
The backdoor creaked open making both Michael and Jacob startle. "John! Shit give someone a heart attack why don’t you." Michael laughed.
"Sorry, didn’t mean to make you squeal like a little girl. I just had to come out and make sure Jakie was ok. I was worried when I woke and you weren’t in bed with me. You’re not mad at me are you?"
"Why would I be mad at you? You’re not the one that lied. You have the right to be mad at me." Jacob said looking down at the wooden porch
John crouched down in front of Jacob taking his small hands in his. He looked into his eyes.
"I'm not mad at you Jacob. You didn’t lie, what Mike said about giving yourself willingly is true. I just wanted to know who told you all those bullshit lies. I hate that the bastard upset you so bad that you think you’re not worth love. I love you with all my heart and soul Jacob. He lied to you, You’re worth so much love and so much more than you can imagine. I want us to spend the rest of our lives together. I don’t care who has to say boo about it. Anyone who doesn’t like it, screw’em. They’re just jealous cause they can’t have either of us."
Jacob looked shocked. ‘Did he just say he wanted us to spend the rest of our lives together? Is he really that serious? He really loves me that much?’
He didn’t have too much time to think too heavily on that. He came out of his trance to see John rush back into the house, Jacob got up to follow but Michael stopped him.
"Wait, he’ll be right back. I told you that he wasn’t pissed." he said.
Jacob stared blankly. ‘What’s he doing?’ he asked.
Michael shrugged. "I dunno." he replied a coy smile playing on his lips.
Jacob smiled big "Asshat you do too know. What’s he doing?" he asked again. "I cant tell you!" Michael said jumping up from his seat on the porch swing as Jacob tried to pin him down.
Michael ran inside, Jacob right behind him. "Michael Gruber, you do know what he’s planning! Tell me!" Jacob was laughing. Michael turned to face him.
Jacob gave his best puppy dog look pouting out his bottom lip giving Michael sad eyes. "Oh Lord! John, hurry up and get back down here! He’s giving me the puppy eyes!"
Bryn laughed as he walked into the kitchen. "That look can get you anything you want, but it won’t work with Mike, he’s too much of a hard ass." Bryn told him. Jacob laughed.
John walked in a few minutes later, he was carrying a small velvet box.
Bryn was first to see it. He gasped loud. "Oh my God!…OOF!" Michael meant to hit Bryn in his stomach, he missed and hit him in the groin.
Bryn fell to the floor groaning and laughing. "No sex for you tonight." he said breathlessly.
John sat Jacob on a chair then sat in the floor in front of him. Being careful to hide the box behind him. He took Jacob’s hands in his and looked him in his eyes.
"I love you more than anything, all I want is to make you happy. I’d die if something happened and we couldn’t be together. You’re my whole life Jacob. The reason I wake every morning is because I know you’ll be there with me."
John had tears falling, Jacob gently wiped them away with his finger. "John, what’s going on? I’ve never seen you like this." he said.
John sat up on his knees so he was face level with Jacob. He reached behind him clutching the box tightly. "I was going to wait for a couple days before I did this, I had something really special planned for us, but right now is when I need to do it." He took a deep breath and opened the box.
Inside was a silver wedding band, diamonds ran down both sides in rows of two. The inside inscribed with ‘Forever my love, My life. June 5 1998’ The day they became a couple.
Jacob stared wide eyed, mouth open wanting to speak but unable to find his voice. "Will you be my love, be with me forever?" John asked his voice breaking.
Jacob let out a breath he didn’t realize he was holding in. He smiled big. "Yes John, I will. Nothing could make me happier. I love you so much."
He was stopped when John kissed him lovingly. John slipped the ring on Jacob’s finger, he kissed the ring ‘For luck’ he said.
"Alright! Double bachelor party!" Bryn exclaimed. Everyone laughed.
"Nutter" John whispered under his breath.
"Well now we have to celebrate. But where?" Michael spoke up.
The four men thought for a moment before Jacob spoke finally. "How ‘bout London? I mean that is where we first met. It makes the most sense."
They all agreed and made plans to leave the following week.
