"Let me get my jacket
and we'll be off."
"Are you going to
smoke that?" He asked pointing at the lighter and
"Oh," she said coming
back down the steps, she handed him back the stuff. "I don't
"That's okay," he
smiled, "neither do I."
It didn't take long to
reach Sin City, with the way Albear was driving. There was a line
around the corner of hot bodied boys, all waiting to experience
the gay thumpa thumpa of the night club.
"Relax." Albear said
pulling out his v.i.p. pass. "We're going to the head of the
"Well that's a
relief." She said closing her compact mirror as he pulled in the
alleyway to park.
Once they were inside,
the scene was exploding. Lights flashing everywhere, glitter
falling from the ceiling, music blasting and tons of shirtless
boy wonders everywhere. Needless to say, Lourdes never minded
that she was the only straight girl in the room when Albear
dragged her here.
Alby grabbed her hand
and directed her through the masses all the way to the bar. They
were standing there no longer than two minutes when Lamont came
"Hi honey!" He said
with that flaming southern accent. He was wearing a too small,
black muscle shirt, and a pair of color print pants that Lourdes
couldn't even began to comprehend. But that was Lamont, his flame
Corey followed right behind him. Corey rushed up giving her a
hug. "It's about time you two got here. Alby said that you were
coming hours ago." Lourdes let Corey kiss her, but she was
looking at Albear mouthing the word
to him. He smiled and handed her a
Tyler and Lamont stood
on both sides of her. "So anybody getting any action tonight?"
She asked taking a sip of her beer.
"Quite a few
possibilities." Lamont said cruising a guy walking
"Yeah, but nobody's
jumping at the bait." Tyler said.
Lourdes put her hand
on his cheek affectionately. Tyler was one of the sweetest guys
that she knew. He was cute, in shape, good job and smart. He
would make some girl the perfect husband. But instead he wanted
to make some guy the perfect wife. And in the shallow gay world
that is Sin City, Ty was considered less than
"Well things will
change now that I'm here," Alby said, "you can all live
vicariously through me." Albear leaned against Corey putting his
arm around his shoulders, smiling.
"Did anybody ever tell
you that, self deluded arrogance looks good on you." Tyler said
rolling his eyes along with Lamont .
Just then a guy walked
by cruising Albear. He made eye contact with him and tilted his
head, inviting Albear to follow him to the back room. Albear
turned and smiled at all of them.
"Hey Ty, you think
that self deluded arrogance will look good on me while he's back
there tonguing my balls?" Albear removed his arm from around
Corey's shoulders and handed him his beer. "Just in case none of
you losers score tonight, meet me in the back, I'll give you a
Lourdes laughed and
Corey gave Albear a playful push as he turned and followed the
guy through the crowd.
"What a fuckin life."
Tyler said bitterly.
"Don't you worry
honey, you'll find that special guy some day." Lamont
"Yeah thanks." Tyler
said, still watching Albear as he walked
Stacy was right.
Alexsander was recognized immediately by the gay boys. They were
walking down the street, there was no parking anywhere, so they
had to park at least 3 blocks away. But once they were in front,
the bouncer motioned for them to come in. A couple of queens
gushed and whispered loudly as they went in
They were five feet in
the door when Alex stopped in his tracks. "Fuck me." He said to
Stacy stood there
smiling, bobbing her head to the music. It looked like tonight
was going to be a hot night.
Alex turned and looked
"What is it?" She
asked. He had the funniest expression.
"Oh my god," she said,
"you didn't know this was a gay club?"
He didn't say
"You couldn't tell by
the hordes of fags all waiting to get in?" She
"You said you love
this club!" He said loudly over the music.
"I do!" She said back.
"Take off your jacket, stay awhile. We're here
He started to take off
his jacket, when a guy cruising him walked by and ran his fingers
across his chest. Alex jerked the coat back on. "You know, I
think I'm good." He said.
Stacy laughed. She
grabbed his hand and pulled him further into the
Lamont moved closer to
Lourdes and turned her slowly to face the other direction.
"Honey, don't look now but I think there is a guy cruising
"What?" Tyler said
running his fingers through his black hair.
"Well at first I
thought that he was cruising me, but now I'm pretty sure he
hasn't taken his eyes off of you. It's that tall drink of water
over there at ten o'clock."
Corey, big brown eyes
wide, and Tyler both turned towards the direction that Lamont
said. Lourdes followed across the room also. Half the guys in
here were tall. She scanned back and forth at the many faces. She
let out a small gasp and turned around.
"Oh my god." She said
to herself. Alexsander was staring right at
Corey, Tyler and
Lamont all turned around with her. "Honey what is it?" Lamont
asked, full pink lips smirking.
"I know him." Lourdes
"So? He's a hunk. Go
"I can't, I have no
idea what he's doing here." She said trying not to
"How do you know him?"
"Is he here to see
you?" Lamont asked.
"Is he even gay?"
Lourdes looked down at
her drink. She wasn't sure if he knew she saw him. Possibly.
Shit, what was she going to do?
"What I miss?" Albear
came walking up putting his arm around her. His black shirt was
unbuttoned down two more buttons than it was
"Lourdes is having a
heart attack because some hottie is cruising her." Corey said
without missing a beat. Lourdes looked at him trying to plead
with her eyes not to say anything. Corey shrugged his shoulders
and gave her an apologetic look.
"No shit, where?"
turned back in Alex's direction and nodded his head. "It is, that
very delectable morsel over by the door, and in case you're
wondering, he is still lookin'
checkin' you out. And if you don't want him,
I will go over and introduce
Albear glanced over
his shoulder and saw Alexsander watching them. He took his arm
from around Lourdes' shoulder and grabbed her hand. "Come on,
"Albear no!" Lourdes
said trying to yank back.
"Yeah, what are you
doing, let her go over there and talk to that dream boat." Lamont
"Fuck him." Albear
They all stopped and
stared at him. Lourdes prayed that Alex couldn't see them through
the crowd of dancers.
"Let's dance." He said
again. This time Lourdes didn't fight him. She let him pull her
on to the dance floor as the boys started speculating about what
was going on.
Once they were in the
center of the dance floor Albear turned to face her. He started
swaying back and forth to the upbeat tempo. He put his hands on
Lourdes waist and started moving her with him. "I'm trying to
help you." He said.
"Help me how?" She
Albear was a little
sweaty, probably from his workout in the back. His hair was in
his face and he almost looked like a teenager. He gave her a sexy
smile which put her at ease a little and she felt like she could
focus. He put his face close to hers. "He followed you here
didn't he? That's such a turn on. Here
Lourdes snatched her
hand away quickly as Albear tried to put it on his crotch. Albear
Lourdes danced to the
beat as Albear spun her around. She was still in shock that
Alexsander was standing there across the room watching them in a
gay club. But Albear must be right. Alex said that he needed to
use her phone to make a call, but he probably checked her text
messages instead. He must have saw that Albear was taking her to
"Albear I can't just
stand here and dance with you." She said. "He's waiting for
"Oh, is he
"Don't be like
"What makes you so
sure he's here for you? Who the fuck is that girl that he's
Lourdes hadn't noticed
a girl. She could only make quick glances, they were moving too
"You said that you're
trying to help me but how is this helping?" She called out over
"Look around you."
Albear said. "What do you see? Every guy in here wants to be with
me in one way or another."
Lourdes let out at
laugh. "I think that you've already been with every guy in
"Then why not take
some advice from someone who knows what he's doing. You're with
the hottest fucking guy in this place and everybody else wishes
that they were standing here right where you are. So keep moving,
keep dancing, like you don't have a care in the world. Because
he's not going anywhere."
Lourdes tried to avoid
looking in Alex's direction. They kept dancing to the music and
Albear kept talking. "Right now he is watching every guy is this
place, watching me, dancing with you. Do you know how much power
that yields you?" Albear pulled her close to him like they were
lovers and he put his lips to her ear. "Did he follow you here?"
He asked again.
"Yes." Lourdes said
sure of it this time.
"Then don't you dare
go to him. Make him come to you."
"I don't want to play any games." She said.
"Yo bitch, pick
another time to be a pussy." He said. "And don't even think about
lying to me. I know you and you want him as bad as every other
twink in this room. And if you want him to play into your hands,
instead of you chasing after him, then let me help
"So you wanna make him
jealous?" She asked trying to see his point.
Albear kept dancing
but pulled something out of his pocket. Without missing a beat,
he grabbed her by the back of her head and sprayed a mist up her
nose. Lourdes could guess what it was. A secret blend of Albear's
herb and spices. He put his right arm around her waist and pulled
her body against his. It was all rushing to her head and she
began to tingle all over. Before she could figure out what he was
doing, he kissed her and stuck his tongue down her throat. She
should have pulled away from him but everybody was watching them.
Between the music and the dancing and the kissing she felt like
she was drifting away. She let him kiss her for 5 seconds longer
and then she pulled away still dancing to the music. Albear kept
"Will he want me now?"
Lourdes asked playfully.
"He already does."
Albear said. "He more than wants you."
Lourdes finally looked
in Alex's direction. He was leaning against a rail ignoring some
guy trying to hit on him. He was staring right at
Albear pulled her
close again. "Remember who you are." He
"Who am I?" She asked.
Burying her head in his chest.
He pulled her away
from him trying to look very serious. "You're my disciple." He
"You're going to be
the female equivalent of me. You're going to show no fear, all
confidence and you're going to work him
smiling, trying not to laugh. To Albear every guy was a horse
waiting to be mounted. Or ridden
"I want you to go over
to the bar and stand by yourself," he said, "he'll come to you,
and when he does, you'll have all the
"You want me to walk
off of the dance floor right now and wait for him to come to me?
I can barely stand up straight with the trail-mix that you just
"Well then, I guess
you better get your sea legs." Albear said. Then he turned and
walked away from her.
"Albear!" She called
after him. But it was too late she had lost him in the
"So I don't know, do
you want to dance or something?" Stacy
"I don't think so."
Alexsander said. "I'm two left feet."
"Oh, come on, I heard
that you were a pretty good dancer."
"Who told you that?"
He asked dead serious.
Stacy smiled and shook
her head trying to lighten up the moment. "Actually Emma did."
But he had already moved beyond the question, he was checking out
the crowd again.
"Do you want to check
the place out?"
"What are we doing
here then?" She asked.
Alexsander pulled his
wallet out of his pocket. He handed her a twenty. "Why don't you
get us a couple of drinks."
Stacy stood there and
stared at him trying to figure out what angle he was working. He
was scanning the room looking for someone. Emma never said
anything about him being gay. Stacy walked off and went to the
bar. "Asshole." She muttered to herself. She would make sure to
order an extra shot with her drink.
When she got back with
their drinks, a guy was trying his hardest to put the moves on
Alex. He wasn't paying him the slightest bit of attention, he
wasn't even looking at him while the guy was talking. She felt a
little bit better to know that she wasn't the only one being
"Sorry sweetie," she
said to the boy, "he's taken."
The young man tossed
his head up in the air and walked away.
"No problem." Stacy
said cozying up to him.
He took the drink out
of her hand and drunk it down.
"Is something wrong?"
She asked, but he wasn't paying attention to anything she was
saying. She followed his gaze across the room. She focused on a
tall, pretty black girl. She thought she saw Lourdes dancing with
that hot guy that she drove off with. But her hair was not pulled
back, she had it long and flowing and she wasn't wearing the
dress that she had on at the dinner party. Now she had on low
rise black slacks and a black sleeveless vest as a shirt. It was
a pretty cute outfit. Stacy looked at Alex again, she was almost
sure that this is who he was staring at. But she couldn't tell if
he was looking at the girl or the guy.
"Is that Lourdes?" She
practically yelled over the very loud music.
He didn't say
anything. So she watched them dance. They seemed to be in their
own world, laughing and talking to each other. They were really
into each other. They obviously hadn't noticed them standing
there watching them. But as Stacy looked around, she noticed a
lot of people were watching them. Nobody more than Alex,
Lourdes and the guy
"Wow they're really
good." She said.
The side of Alex's
face started to twitch, but he still said
"They look pretty hot
out there on the dance floor. Doesn't it make you want to do the
He still said
They were still
dancing when out of nowhere, the hot guy shoved something up her
nose. "Holy shit, did you see that?" Stacy asked. It was obvious
that Lourdes didn't see it coming, Stacy wondered if they should
do something. She could barely get the words out, when the hot
guy kissed Lourdes. Stacy couldn't tell if he was taking
advantage of her or not. Alexsander was staring as if he were in
a trance. "We should do something." She said starting to walk on
to the dance floor, but Alex grabbed her arm and pulled her back.
"It's not our business." He said.
"But I thought she was
He was willing to
offer nothing else. Stacy turned back to look at them, they were
dancing once again. Alex looked like he was ready to murder
"Will you tell
Gabriel?" She asked.
"Tell him what?" He
said looking straight ahead.
"That his girlfriend
is cheating on him. I mean that's why you're here right,
following her to see if it's true?"
"It's not our
business." He said once again.
Stacy had about enough
of this. "I'm going to go dance. I thought we came here to have
fun, not spy on people."
"Sorry." He said. She
actually thought that he meant it but he wasn't budging from
where he was standing. "Fine." She said. Stacy stormed off onto
the floor to dance her frustrations away, she didn't want the
night to be a complete and total waste...
Lourdes spun around.
She could see Corey, Tyler and Lamont watching her. She kept eye
contact with them and slowly made her way across the room. Once
she was almost to them, she made a right and went down to the end
of the bar. Lamont began to walk over to her to see what was
going on but, Corey grabbed his hand. Corey knew Albear the
longest and he had all but figured out what he was doing. She
smiled at him and then turned away. She leaned on the bar counter
trying to ride the trail mix that was running through her. She
took five long deep breaths and pulled herself together. She
stood up straight, exhaled one more time and turned around. That
fuckin' Albear ditched her just like that and now she was
standing here looking like an idiot. She would give it a couple
more minutes, and then head back over to the
All of a sudden, her
body went numb. She looked up and Alexsander was standing next to
her. She was facing the dance floor and he was facing the bar.
They both stared straight ahead. She closed her eyes and waited
for him to say something, but he didn't. She opened her eyes and
looked down at her feet. When she looked up at Alex he was
staring at her. He pushed himself away from the bar, not breaking
eye contact. He backed away slowly giving her one of the most
intense looks she had ever seen him make, then he turned around
and walked away. Lourdes turned and looked down the bar, the boys
were making hand gestures for her to follow him. She turned
without hesitation and began following.
She tried to keep up
as he made his way through the crowd. Once she was across the
room, she spotted Alex heading down a long, dark, vacant hallway
She was familiar with
that hallway, but not personally. It was leading to the back
room. One of the places Albear frequented regularly. The long
stretch of hallway lead to a room of hot horny boys hooking up.
She was willing to bet money, that's where Albear was going for
round three of the night.
Alex was about ten
steps ahead of her and three quarters of the way down the hallway
when he stopped. Lourdes walked slowly, taking her time before
she reached him. As she studied his tall silhouette, as she
advanced towards him, the thumpa, thumpa of the music was
starting to fade away and she began to hear the moans and grunts
of guys in the back getting it on.
She stopped two feet
away from Alex. It was as if he could feel her there, he turned
to face her. Alex was silent, and looking mysterious, challenging
her with his eyes. Lourdes smiled at him with hers, challenging
him back. He walked the two steps towards her, but didn't stop.
He walked right into her, forcing her to back up against the
wall. He put his right hand against the wall above her head
creating as little space between them as
He looked down at her
breathing hard. The shit Albear had gave her had kicked in to the
fullest and she was feeling no pain.
"How you like this?"
He asked in his Swedish voice.
She smiled. Mm, that
was it. Him using his real accent was music to her drug induced
ears. Lourdes felt her panties getting wet as he pressed his body
up against hers. "How do I like what?" She swooned as one of his
long leg's forced it's way in between hers. He grinded on her
hard and just once. He was hard. "Like how you are." He said. He
grinded her against the wall so hard, she let out a
"I like it." She
whispered fluttering her eyes closed. This was it. This was the
perfect moment for him to kiss her, for him to do...anything to
But Alex whispered in
her ear, "you have a funny way of showing
Then he pushed himself
off of her and turned and walked away.
She could have killed
