He didn't want to cause a scene so as slowly and discreetly as he could, Kris slipped his hand over
Adam's twitching knee holding it still.
“I wish you would relax baby. People are going to start thinking you're afraid of flying or something.”
Adam slipped his hand over Kris's gripping it tightly not care if all of first class might see.” More like afraid of Arkansas. I swear Kris, I'm going to throw up.”
Kris tried his best not to smile as he watched Adam's knee begin to twitch again. “Well try not get any on my shoes please.” Turning back to the movie in front of him, Kris tried to ignore his nervous boyfriend beside him, but Adam had other ideas.
“They're going to hate me.”
“No they're not.”
“They're going to think I turned you gay. That I'm the reason you're gay.”
“No they won't”
“I'm going to throw up.”
“No you're not.”
“I'm going to...”
“Adam,” Kris finally snapped causing a few people around them to look over. “You have to calm down baby,” he whispered this time. He had been listening to his boyfriend freak out for a week now, and even though he had promised Adam that everything would be okay, and that nothing bad was going to happen, Adam had continuously ignored his promises. “My parents love you baby. My brother love you, and my friends are going to love you too. Now please calm yourself down before one of those over friendly air hostesses has to restrain you.” Kris turned back to the movie sighing happily when Adam didn't say any more.
It was all supposed to be easy it wasn't like it was the first time it was happening. Adam had met Kris family dozens of times over the past year. He had shared dinners with them and even went to both Kris's parents birthday parties. So when Mrs Allen had asked Kris to come home for the weekend he had seen it as a great opportunity to bring Adam home, and finally tell everyone about their relationship. Kris had thought his plan was great, but as he watched the color drain from Adam's face he realized his weekend home wasn't going to be as fun as he thought.
“Why did I let you talk me into this?” Adam complained.
“Because you love me,” Kris answered matter of fact.
“But they're going to hate me.”
“Baby no they're not.”
“They're going to think I turned you gay.”
“I said they won't,” Kris sighed wishing he had taken the headset when the air hostess offered it to him.
“I will email Perez Hilton that video of you trying to kick the football if you say one more word,” Kris warned.
“Hey,” Kris interrupted pointing his finger at Adam. “ I mean it.”
“Fine, but when this all blows up in our faces I won't be saying I told you so.”
“I'm sure you won't baby.” Kris patted Adam's knee before turning back to the movie. Now if he could keep Adam like that Kris thought the weekend might just off without any real dramas.
“Hey baby there they are.” Kris pulled Adam through the crowded airport towards his waiting parents.
“Boys,” Mrs Allen gushed as she pulled both of them into her arms. “Adam it's been too long. We missed you.” Kris wiggled out of his Mama's arms shooting Adam a smug look as he found himself being pulled into his fathers arms.
“She's right Adam,” Kris's father added. “It's been too long.” Kris felt his father's arms leave him before Adam was pulled in for a hug. “Now, why don't we get you boys home and fatten you both up. You're both too skinny.” Kris walked beside his mama as he watched Adam and his father walk ahead.
“Oh you boys don't mind sharing a room do you?” Kris's Mama's words caused Adam to look over his shoulder with a frightened look on his face. “Adam honey you okay?” Mrs Allen asked with concern. “You look like you're going to be sick.”
Kris sat back on his childhood bed and watched Adam pace up and down in front of him. Words had stopped forming for Adam and all he could do now was shake his head and sigh every few seconds.
“Mama has a blow up bed we can both sleep on. It's a double so we won't be too squashed together.”
“They're going to hate me.”
“Oh my god.” Kris threw himself back against the mattress.
“Well they are.”
“If the public could see you now.” Kris leaned up on his elbows laughing. “This neurotic crazy self doubting wreck.”
“I'm going to be sick,” Adam announced running from the room with Kris following behind.
When Kris finally caught up with him Adam was hunched over the toilet emptying his stomach. “Baby?” Kris knelt behind Adam running his hand's up his boyfriend's back.
“Don't touch me.” Adam shrugged Kris's hand away. “I don't want you seeing me like this.”
“Baby,” Kris laughed lightly needing his hand into Adam's hair. “I've licked jelly from your belly button. I don't think there much we have to hide from each other now.”
Once Adam was sure he wasn't going to be sick again he leaned back against Kris's chest heavily. “I told you I was going to be sick.”
“Yes you did.” Kris kissed the side of his boyfriend's head as he ran his hand's down Adam's front to rub circles on his stomach.
“Mama. Dad. There's something I want you both to know.” The calmness Kris was showing earlier was gone now replaced with a rush of nervous energy as he looked towards his parents. Adam sat beside him for support, but Kris could tell the older man was going to be no help if his parents took this badly.
“Are you sick?” Mrs Allen asked with worry in his voice.
“No Mama.” Kris watched as the worry stayed on his mama's face while his father sat still beside her his face filled with confusion as he looked towards Adam. “It's not anything bad Mama.” Kris stole a look at Adam who was now watching Kris's father closely.
“So what's the news” Mr Allen asked without taking his eyes off of Adam.
“Well Mama. Dad. I've...I've met someone. Someone who's very special to me.”
“You've met a girl?” Mrs Allen asked a little surprised. “A girl in LA?” Both Kris and Adam let out a laugh at his Mama's words. It was a well known joke now that Mrs Allen worried continuously that her baby boy would be caught up with some LA fame whore who was only after his money and his name.
“No,” Mr Allen answered finally looking at Kris. “He didn't meet a girl in LA, did you Kristopher?” Mr Allen looked back at Adam again. It was a look of shock and anger that caused Adam to flinch back into the couch a little.
“Not now Adam, Kris has to say this. Kris tell your Mama who you met.” Kris looked towards his mama with tears forming in his eyes.
“Baby what's the matter?” Mrs Allen asked as she knelt in front of Kris taking both his hands in hers.
“I love him Mama,” Kris managed to choke out before throwing himself into his Mama's arms. The sound of his fathers footsteps stomping out of the front door, and Adam's hands gently rubbing over his back only caused him to cry harder.
“Oh honey,” Mrs Allen sighed holding Kris tighter. “Now don't think of me as stupid, but the him his Adam right?”
Kris pulled away laughing and crying at the same time. “Yes Mama, it's Adam.”
“God I think I'm going to throw up,” Adam moaned as he hid his face with his hands.
“Oh honey,” Mrs Allen laughing making her way towards Adam and pulling him into her arms. “You love my baby boy?” She pulled away holding Adam's face in her hands.
“With everything I own,” Adam answered honestly.
“My next phone call with your mother is going to be a long one,” Mrs Allen laughed again pulling both boys into her arms.
End Of Flashback
Kris lay back against the hospital bed giggling as Adam held Sophia in his arms telling her another story of their past.
“And it took Grandma Allen two days before she realized that Daddy was gay.” Adam looked up at Kris laughing. “I can't believe I survived that weekend. I was sure your Dad left to find a gun.”
“He came around.” Kris ran his finger tips over Sophia's head. “And you think telling your parents wasn't traumatic for me?”
“Oh my god.” Kris leaped up from his knees in front of Adam to find Leila standing in the door way behind him.
“God Mom don't you knock?” Adam complained as he tried his best to buckle his pants.
“Kitchen now,” Leila snapped walking away.
“Please tell me that didn't happen?” Kris covered his face with his hands.
“It didn't happen,” Adam answered with a smirk.
“Your mother just caught me....And in her home too.” Kris sunk onto his knees in front of Adam again the embarrassment too much for him to take.
“Round two?” Adam smirked.
End Of Flashback.
“Hey,” Adam whispered placing his hand over Sophia's ears. “She does not need to hear that story.”
“Oh we're embarrassed now?” Kris smirked. “And you don't think getting caught with my mouth full wasn't embarrassing for me?”
It was now Adam's turn to smirk. “Mouth full being the right description baby.”
