I wrote this story in 2005, the four hundredth anniversary of The Gunpowder Plot. For those not aware of this peculiar celebration, go over to Wikipedia and look it up. There is no sex in the story, but it centres on a young man set up by his interfering neighbour.
Robbie takes a call from an ex-lover. It’s a phone call that could change hi slife forever. Jack comes to support Robbie while he goes for an HIV test. The love between two best friends can get you through anything.
Robbie and Jack are now older, and it is Jack’s wedding day. The two friends are as close as they have ever been as they spend Jack’s final night as a bachelor in Robbie’s apartment.
I like writing about these two friends. They have a closeness that I wish I had with my best friend. There is no sex between them, and I seriously doubt if they ever will have sex, it would spoil the relationship. I hope you like these glimpses into defining moments of the life of these friends.
While the parents are away… Simon’s parents are off for a long weekend in Edinburgh, but Simon is not left alone in the house, he invites Adam for a sleepover.During their time together they explore each other and discover they both like the same underwear and they go further and explore what’s inside each other’s Superdry orange boxer-briefs.
I enjoyed writing the short story YOI Cockton so much, and it got such a positive reaction from readers that I decided to turn it into a series. I consider the original short story the pilot and I used it as the start of the bigger story. It’s about juvenile deliquents in a “Young Offenders Institution” and is a fantasy about control and forced sex.
Robbie and Jack are now at different Universities. Jack feels the need to meet up with his best and oldest friend after he experiences something one night that leaves him unsettled.
Robbie and Jack remain close. Jack’s relationships with girls are beginning to get more physical, and he confides his feelings and fears to Robbie. After a night out, they have another sleepover, this time Jack nocturnal activities involve Robbie.
For those readers more familiar with American English, I use the word ‘fanny’ in this story. In this case, it means a ladies front-bottom and not a persons back-bottom.
Hormones are surging in the blood of the teenage friends. During an impromptu sleepover, Jack does something other than sleepwalking and Robbie has an accident in his briefs.
I’ve had this story brewing for some time (I hope you like the pun), and I am now happy with it. I think my problem was how to inject some sex into the story without it feeling forced. Well, in the end, I decided not to inject sex into the story as it just doesn’t fit.
This short story is about the beginning of a relationship, how two young men meet by chance. I always intended this to be a one-off, and although it lends itself to many possibilities, I won’t be expanding on it. What happened next will be left to your imagination. I was interested in exploring how a relationship begins, and that’s why there is no sex in this story.
I hope you like it, even if it won’t get you off.
Robbie is beginning to feel an attraction to boys but doesn’t fully understand why he is different. He has another sleepover at Jack’s place and during a bout of sleepwalking in the middle of the night, Robbie gets to see his best friend naked.
