Chapter 05: Sharing is Caring


It was already seven o'clock in the morning when I woke up. When I open my eyes I saw Ash's serene face, he was still sleeping soundly while his hands were tightly wrapped around my body. His hugs felt so good, I didn't want to leave his embrace but I still had to prepare for our breakfast. I slowly removed Ash's hand and replace my body with a pillow that was lying beside him. After I made sure that Ashton is still sleeping soundly, I slowly walked into the bathroom and took a cold shower as quickly as I can.

After I took the shower, I went to the living room and sat on the couch after grabbing my cellphone and calling Rex’ number, there is something I need to talk to him and I hope that I’m doing the right thing.

"Hey, dude." Rex greeted on the other line.

"Do you have someone with you?" I asked when I heard a faint moan on the other line. Rex seems to be busy with something else.

"Ah, yeah. Why did you call? Do you need help or something? I’m in the middle of fucking this fine ass of a dude.” He replied while moaning in between words, a smirk form in my lips as I couldn’t resist it even though he can’t see me.

"Well, I think you are no longer interested in the man you asked me to fetch yesterday. I just want you to know that I want him." I firmly said to him, I heard him cursing on the other line and for a second I thought he was cursing me but then I heard a loud growl of pain. I just laugh at the thought of my cousin brutally fucking a guy while talking on the phone.

"Fuck yeah, dude. You can have him now, I'll just fuck him later tonight." He playfully replied, I don’t know but my heart sank at what he said.

"Fuck dude! I said I want him, you know that I don't share right?" I said in an angry tone but Rex didn’t seem to notice it because I heard him laugh on the other line.

"Fuck! Oh, fuck shit!" That was the last words I heard from Rex. What the fuck, did he just drop the phone? Fucker. I put my phone down on the table and went to the kitchen to prepare our breakfast.

It took me one and a half hour before I finished cooking and preparing the food, I placed the food on a mini table and gently walked back to the bedroom. When I opened the door Ashton was still sound asleep, I couldn't help but smile as I watched him firmly embracing the pillow and still unaware that he was no longer hugging my body.

I laid the food on the table and sat on the bed. I ran my hand over his very smooth cheek and gently caressed it. I can't take my eyes off of him, his face is addictive that I don't want him to disappear on my sight. I hate to do this but I need to wake him up or else he will miss breakfast and I don’t want my effort in cooking these delectable food go to waste.

"Hey baby, wake up. Breakfast is ready." I said in a faint voice but he just gently shook his shoulder. I tenderly pat his shoulder to get his attention, after a while he opened his eyes and smile when he saw me, I can't help but remember the kiss that happened between us last night. I swear that was the best kiss I have ever tasted in my entire life.

"Zie?" Ash shrugged my shoulder getting my attention so I immediately snap out from my trance, I was so engrossed by the thought of me kissing his lips and smelling his morning breath that I didn’t notice I space out. I shook my head and shyly smile at him.

"Breakfast is ready," I said and took the food from the table and laid it on the bed beside him. Yeah! How about breakfast in bed? I bet this is romantic, I hope he finds this romantic.

"Hmm, the food smell good, thank you Zie." I can’t help but smile at his remark, I don’t know but I felt very proud of myself. I was smiling the whole time we were eating the food. Now, I didn’t regret ditching my 7:30 meeting with my editors today just to cook and accompany Ash here in my penthouse.

We were in the middle of eating when I notice him fidgeting as if something is troubling him.

"What are you thinking Ash?" I asked in a soft voice, trying to comfort him even though I don’t know what he is thinking. At first, he was hesitant to answer me but when I showed him my comforting smile, he sighs and nods as if he realized that there’s no harm in telling me the things that were bothering him.

"I was just wondering where I could find a job and a cheap apartment to live in." He answered with a sad voice, I can't help but feel sad about his situation but I tried my best not to show him my pity because I know that, that is the last thing he needs right now.

"I can help you with that Ash, but first I want to know why you ran away from your home. What if your parents are already looking for you, they must be anxious right now." I said to him. For some unknown reason, he gritted his teeth as if he was on a verge of anger but at the same time, he was trying to hold back his emotions.

"M-my p-parents kicked me out." He confessed. What the fuck? His parents kicked him out? What parents are in their right mind kicking their children out of their house? For fuck sake, he was just so young and it would be hard for him to face the world without guidance. His parents are sick.

"They caught me and Seb being intimate with each other. I-It's okay that my father just kicks me out though, at least he doesn't hurt me physically." I could do nothing but hug him as tears slowly trickled down his eyes.

Fuck those homophobes, they are the reason why people are afraid to show who they are. They say that whatever goes against the norms is bad, but sexuality is not something that you can force. You can’t force feelings.

"Hey, everything will be okay, baby," I said comforting him and gently stroked his back. There's no way I'm going to send him away now, I know we've only met for a very short time but I'm willing to know him more.
