“Kris and Colt did what?” I asked Scott who was there with Hayden while I was with Corey in his room.

“I’m telling you Matt they fucking threw down about two hours ago.  It was a good thing Rick wasn’t around or else they’d be in big trouble,” Scott replied.

“You should see Kris’s lip but you should really see Colt’s eye.  Kris dotted that sucker really well,” Hayden said right after Scott finished.  “Jess is the one who broke them up.”

“Any word on what started it?” Corey asked.

“Colt was accusing Kris of flirting with Monica all night…” Scott said.

“Wasn’t Liz with him?” I asked.

“Yeah, she was,” Hayden replied. “Kris did flirt but it was so innocent…”

“Hayden, I wouldn’t go as far as calling it flirting.  It was Kris being Kris from what I saw…” Scott said.

“Guys, I’m going down to get to the bottom of this,” I stated.

“Yeah, let’s go…” Scott started to say.

I cut him off, “I’m going alone.  I’m sorry but Kris hopefully will be straightforward with me.”

“He’s right about that. Let us know how things turn out,” Corey said.

“Of course I will just as soon as I get to the bottom of this,” I said.  I headed down the hall in a hurry.  I wondered really what was behind this and entered my room.  Rick was in the room with Kris.  Kris had the biggest pissed off look on his face along with a fat lip.

“Kris, we have rules here,” Rick stated after seeing me enter. “One is no physical violence here, which means no fighting.  You and Colt are lucky I didn’t see it or else you’d be in it deep right now plus this is not your first fight.”

“Dammit Rick, I’ve told three times already.  I didn’t start shit!  I’m not letting Colt or anyone around here push me around and accuse of some fucking shit he thought I was doing!” Kris stated forcefully while I stood in the room.

“I’m going to hear Colt’s side of this.  I’m sure it will something completely different,” Rick said.  “See ya!”

Rick exited our room.  I followed behind and locked our door.  I came back over and saw Kris’s swollen bottom lip close up. 

“What the fuck do you want?” Kris asked me rudely.

“What a stupid ass question is that,” I replied. “I came down after Scott told me you and Colt got into a fight.”

“Fuck yeah we did.  I don’t care if that motherfucker shows his face again around this room.  Here I got him a girl, been nothing but nice to him and made him part of our little group here.  Then the bitch accuses me of flirting with Monica.  Matt, I’m not the brightest guy here but no way am I doing that shit with Liz there with me,” Kris stated with conviction and took a breath. “It started last night with a simple little argument.  It was nothing big until his fucking ass came storming into this room just awhile ago.  He started pushing on me and saying how he was going to fuck me up if I kept trying to move in on Monica.  I took it as long as I could and laid into him.”

“Kris, I think I know the answer to this but I’ll ask it anyway.  Did you even flirt with Monica?”

“In my book, it wasn’t flirting.  All I remember saying was she looked very hot in her low cut sweater when we started the night out. Maybe I did say she had a nice ass in her skin tight jeans too but damn I said that to Jess’s girl too.  Then at the movie theater, Monica did sit next to me.  We did fight over the arm rest but in my mind it was just playful.  Colt got pissed then.  I thought it was over until he came down and said Monica thought I was flirting.  How fucking stupid are they?”

“Kris, you know I’m on your side of this but Colt really doesn’t know how you are.”

“Last night, I said I was just being nice once he sort of blew up on me.  He said his thing and I thought that was that,” Kris stated. “Matt, I need to run.  I promised Liz I’d be there five minutes ago.  She was upset once she heard about Colt and me throwing down.  Matt, I did catch him in the eye with a good left hook.”

“I heard you did. You better head off and do some damage control.”

“See ya,” Kris said. “Are you with Corey again tonight?”

“Yes, I am” I smiled.

“Atta boy, you stud!” Kris laughed and headed out the door.

I called Corey and told him I had Kris’s side of the event.  Now I wondered who would be stubborn like I was with Corey and let this drag out and maybe divide us.  The sad part was I was really starting to like Colt as a friend and saw he was very accepting of me after a shaky beginning.

Just about when I expected to see Corey, I heard something out in the hall.  I opened the door to see Corey and Jess around someone with Scott talking to Hayden. As I was racing down the hall, Rick’s door flew open.  Now I could see Corey and Jess had Colt pinned against the wall.

“What the fuck is going on here?” Rick screamed.

“Fucking Colt took a cheap shot at Hayden,” Jess said.

“Colt, I warned you!” Rick screamed.  He grabbed Colt by the arm and took him with force to his room.  Rick was not a happy person by this point.

“What was that all about?” I asked.

“Fucking Colt hit Hayden in the gut for no reason…” Scott said.

“We were heading down to see you and saw him walking down the hall coming at us.  He called us a bunch of fucking fags and punched Hayden in the stomach,” Corey said.  “He’s lucky I didn’t beat his ass.”

“He is,” Jess said.  “Corey, I don’t who is stronger now, you or Kris but I’d be damned if I pick a fight with either one of you.”

We headed to Scott’s room since it was the closest.  “What has gotten into Colt?” Scott asked. “I know him and Kris just fought but damn!”

“My best guess is he’s embarrassed Kris beat his ass,” Jess said. “Last night, I thought the two were going to throw down but Kris did say he was sorry for nothing.”

“Kris told me that and then Colt marched into his room today.  He started pushing Kris and accusing him again of hitting on Monica…” I said.

“It’s really weird,” Scott stated. 

“I’ll be right back,” I said. “I left me door wide open and need to tell Kris what just happened.”   I headed down and found my door wide open.  My phone was on my desk.  I called Kris.  He answered and said him and Liz would be right there after I told him what had went down.

I returned to Scott’s room to tell them Kris was on his way over.  Thankfully, Hayden wasn’t hurt by the punch to the gut but stated it didn’t feel so great since Colt caught him off-guard.  We sat around talking until Kris and Liz popped into the room.

“I think Liz knows exactly what happened,” Kris said. “Tell em, Liz.”

“Well… Monica is a drama queen to the nth degree.  She’s not happy unless there is drama all around her.  The way I see it was she likes to see guys fight over her to make her feel like she’s the best thing out there.  Monica and I are friends but I’ve seen how she works.  She gets a thrill out of causing trouble like last week she started some rumors about this one girl in our sorority just to piss off her best friend,” Liz stated.

“Here’s my guess.  Monica wasn’t happy that Colt said his thing last night and it was over.  She may have filled Colt with a ton of bullshit so she could cause trouble between us…” Kris said.

“Maybe she wanted Colt to put up a fight for her and told him to man up,” Scott said. “Just my guess.”

“You’re both probably right,” Liz said. “If it is true, she has lost me as a friend.  She’ll deny it everything but I’m starting to see she’s a conniving little bitch who hates to see everyone getting along like all of you have. She has been saying a lot of stuff about how weird all of you are. Also, I’m not sure but I think she’s been filling Colt full of crap saying how he should be ashamed to be associated with gay people,” Liz said.  “She did say something about how she thought it was weird how Kris and Matt are such good friends when one is a total faggot.”

“You better have set her ass straight,” Kris said.

“I tried but she said she was joking but I really don’t think she was,” Liz said.

“Now what do we do?” Jess asked.

“I don’t have a clue,” Kris said.

“I’ll try and talk to him after Rick deals with him,” Jess said. “The way it sounds the rest of you can’t do it if Liz is right.  Somehow we have to show him that this is Monica’s fault and dump the stupid bitch no matter how great she is in bed like Colt says she is.”

“If he only knew,” Liz stated.

“Monica’s bi,” Kris said. “She’s been hitting on Liz here.”

“Kris, I’m not one hundred percent sure of this but something tells me Colt’s not the only one she’s having sex with,” Liz said.  “Not only girls but another guy from this frat.”

“Wow, this is getting deep,” Scott stated.

“I bet Monica’s eating this shit up right now, too,” Corey said.

“You know all about that fooling around, huh?” Kris joked with Corey.

“My ass sure learned a hard lesson,” Corey laughed.

“You know what sucks about all of this?  We were going to fucking party tonight,” Kris said.

“We can still party, Kris,” Scott stated. “Nothing says we can’t get hammered and forget all this shit.”

“Scott’s right there,” Jess said. “We can drown our troubles with a few nice bottles.”

“The main question is where we getting the shit?” Kris asked.

“Ummm… I think Kendall mentioned something last night he had connection,” Jess replied just as someone was knocking on the door.

“It’s open!” Scott hollered with Alex and a girl walking in.

“Wassup, bitches?” Alex asked.

“A fucking ass load of shit is up…” Kris replied.

“Dude, what happened to your lip?” Alex asked after evidentially just noticing it.

Together we filled him and had to go through the same thing with Juan walking in the door.  Jess in the meantime was on his phone and calling Kendall to see what he could provide for everyone.  Jess finished and gave us a big thumbs up that things were set.  Instead of heading out, we ordered a few pizzas to eat.

Kendall and Noel along with a friend of theirs, Mark, came to Scott’s room bringing two sizable bottles of liquor along with some liter drinks to mix them with. 

“We getting fucked up or just a buzz going?” Jess asked.

“Right now, I don’t really care what we do,” Kris said.

They poured the drinks, which I might add were strong and handed out the pizzas.  Corey and I weren’t that hungry after eating just before we arrived.  We were sitting around and enjoying the food when Rick came to the door. 

“All I will say is there better not be one drop of alcohol in those cups,” Rick said.

“Goddamn!” Jess hollered. “I don’t even have to ask what’s up your ass.”

“No you don’t,” Rick stated. “Kris, I need to see you for a minute.”

Kris climbed out and headed out the door.  We all hoped it wasn’t serious but knew something might happen.  Kris returned and sat right back where he was.

“Spill it,” Scott said.

“By the sound of it, Colt’s in some deep shit,” Kris said. “I tried my best to plead with him to wait before doing anything drastic.  He really wasn’t in the mood to listen.”

“I wasn’t going to say a word but Matt and I might be able to pull some strings and see if we can’t get Rick to calm his ass down a little,” Corey said. “Don’t anybody ask what it is though.”

“Matt?” Kris said to me.

“My lips are sealed,” I said.

“He’ll tell me.”

“Tell us, Matt,” Kendall said.

“No way,” I said. “We promised.”

“Alright then, Kendall and I have a secret as well,” Noel said.

“You’re boyfriends,” Jess laughed.

“Fuck you, bitch!” Kendall said. “Now see if we ask anyone here to go skiing with us right after semester ends at my parent’s place in Colorado.”

“Yeah, we’ll ask our other friends to go with us,” Noel said.

“What other friends?” Kris laughed.

Kendall laughed, “We have them but no way in hell would ask a one of them to go.  So is anyone up for a ski trip?”

“Before I say yes, how much and where?” Kris asked.

“The cost is nothing except your ski rental and stuff like that.  The cabin is Breckenridge, which is about eight hours from here,” Kendall replied.

“So give us a rough estimate how much that would cost?  Kendall, none of us here are rolling like you are,” Jess stated.

“I’d say four or five hundred,” Kendall replied. “So who’s up for it?”

“Count my ass in,” Kris said. “My mom asked me the other day what I wanted for Christmas, so I can tell her now.  Can we bring along our girls?”

“If they want to,” Kendall replied.

Jess, Scott and Alex were all in.  Corey and I said we’d love to go but we’d have to see if we could manage it.  Kendall did say we’d be finished in time to make it home for Christmas.  Now with the news, everyone was excited.  Kendall had pictures on his phone to show us.  To me, it didn’t look like a cabin but a nice big house who’d think of being in the middle of ski country. 

“Oh by the way, everyone is welcome to my parent’s beach house over spring break at Padre, too,” Noel said.

“Damn, you dudes are worth having around,” Jess stated. “So which one of your parents has a house in France or the Caribbean for us this summer?”

We all laughed at Jess’s humor but surprisingly neither one had a house where he mentioned but Kendall did have a lake house.  Man, it must really be nice not to have to worry about money but they never did throw it in our faces like some people did in high school. 

We continued to drink a little and did our best not to make a ton of noise.  By the end of the night, I didn’t drink all that much whereas Corey had more than I did but wasn’t drunk.   About midnight, the party began breaking up.  Corey and I left to head to his room. 

Once in his room, Corey stated, “You do know I have to be at the rec center by eight in the morning.”

“No I didn’t,” I said. “That sucks.”

“I know but I’ll make it no matter how late we stay up.  I can live on a few hours of sleep and can nap when I get off work,” Corey said. “So what do you think of the ski trip?”

“Corey, it did sound like a lot of fun but there’s no way I’d go without you…”

“Matt, whether I can go or not, you should go if you want to.  Just because my ass is poor shouldn’t hold you back,” Corey said.

“True but where would you go during the time I was skiing?”

“Wow, I haven’t even thought of that,” Corey replied. “I suppose I better save every penny I can between now and then.”

“We both better do it,” I said.

“At least you have your mom and even your dad now to ask.”

“My Dad would be a last resort for me.”

We got undressed down to our underwear and climbed into Corey’s little bed.  “Matt, do you believe what Liz said about Monica?” Corey asked me.

“You know I can actually see that.  I’ve known a few girls and guys that do that to stir things up but it is mostly girls.”

“For me, it is hard to believe Colt would listen to that shit…”

“My gut feeling is he listens to that because he likes fucking her.  I think she knows he is pussy whipped,” I said and snickered.

“I have seen those guys that are pussy whipped.  It’s like the girl using that slit to control his every move.  I had a friend in high school that his girlfriend told him who he could hang out with and who he couldn’t.  He took it because he said he was getting some and liked it,” Corey said and started laughing.  “Hell, I’m the same way though now with you, Matt.”

“Corey, I do love you but don’t let me control you that way…” I said and looked at him.

“I know what way you mean,” Corey said and kissed me. “I’ll never ever put myself in that position again as long as we are together and like we are now.  Matt, I do feel sometimes like I’m controlling things you do such as last night and last weekend when everyone went to get a tattoo.”

“Corey, you are not controlling me.  As I’ve said, I enjoy being around everyone here but I miss just seeing you when you’re not here.  I’m making very minor sacrifices while you make a big sacrifice…”

“It’s a sacrifice I wish I didn’t have to make but I’m left without a choice.  So far, it has worked out okay, huh?  We haven’t gotten tired of each other and cherish our time together.  Mostly, I’m thankful you don’t cling all over me and let me have some time to be with and enjoy the others.”

I said, “I’ve seen clingy boyfriends… well clingy girlfriends that just smother the other one.”

“Right now, I won’t mind clinging to those fucking hot lips of yours and letting you have your way with me,” Corey stated.

I smiled at Corey and started clinging to his lips.  The romance began since we had the opportunity to do so plus we were two horny eighteen year olds that enjoyed greatly having hot sex with each other as boyfriends.  For me, we had the main ingredient to make the sex hot and meaningful; we loved each other dearly. 

Waking in Michael’s bed under his warm comforter was odd. Seeing it was just before ten I knew I had at least an hour to kill before I could venture down to my room.  I watched some TV and did text Kris to ask when I could come back to the room.  He texted me back and said give them about twenty minutes. 

I headed back to my room just as Kris and Liz were leaving.  They asked if I was hungry.  I said I wasn’t and didn’t want to interfere with them.  Instead I showered and went off on my own to grab something to eat and shop for a few things such as more condoms since I think Kris was using mine despite them being Magnums.  Normally, I hated buying condoms but now I didn’t have a problem doing so since it is a part of life.  I’m sure the clerk laughed to himself seeing two boxes of Magnums. 

Returning to my room, Kris and Liz were in his bed and watching TV.  I began unloading my things such as a few snacks and drinks for our mini frig that rarely was filled. 

“Here stud,” I said and tossed him a box of condoms. “You can stop using mine.”

“Thanks,” Kris laughed. “You were about out.  These should fit better, huh Liz?”

“Ummm…” Liz replied and seemed a little embarrassed.

“Honey, they will,” Kris said to her.

“You guys are amazing,” Liz stated.

“What?” Kris said.

“I swear I’ve never seen two guys like you before in my life,” Liz said. “You share condoms.”

“Better than getting you pregnant,” Kris stated.

“Kris, you know I’m on the pill,” Liz said.

“You can never be too safe in my book.”

“Damn right, Matt.  The last thing either one of us needs is for you to get pregnant,” Kris stated. “Matt’s damn lucky from that point.”

“It would be hilarious if I did get Corey pregnant.”

“Imagine that dude caring a baby and not having those abs…” Kris said.

“Kris, your abs are so freaking hot,” Liz said and rubbed his stomach.

“I do it for you, babe,” Kris said and kissed her.

“Stop lying to her, Kris.  Liz, you should see him posing in the mirror after he showers.  Even for me, it’s about to make me sick at my stomach,” I joked.

“Yeah right, Matt.  You should see his eyes when I flex,” Kris laughed. “He gets a hard-on just seeing all these muscles pop.”  Kris flexed for Liz.

Liz was laughing, “That’s what I was talking about earlier.”

“Well we are best friends,” Kris said. “I just thought we were before we came here but now there’s not shit I wouldn’t do for that dude and he knows it.”

“Same here, Kris. Liz, he’s like the brother I never had but better.  We rarely fight.”

“Now I want to see you two kiss,” Liz joked.

“Now that shit ain’t happening, Liz,” Kris said. “So I guess there is shit I wouldn’t do for Matt and he knows the boundaries around that.”

“I know and would dare do it either,” I said.  I started gathering up my laundry.  Kris threw his sheets and towels in since I was volunteered to do them as well.  Laundry is boring but has to be done.  Again it was boring but did get in some nice studying along with some chit-chat with a guy from the third floor. 

After laundry was done, Kris was napping but woke when I came back. 

“Thanks Matt,” he said. “Liz and I were talking about the ski trip.  She thinks it would be best if it was just guys…”

“Corey and I have decided yet since our money is a little tight you know.  I can hardly go without him…”

“Why not?”

“Ummm… he has no place to go otherwise.”

“Damn, I forgot all about that,” Kris said. “So what do you think of all of us guys going and leaving the girls out?”

“It would cause fewer problems.  There would be some really jealous guys though if Corey and I went and were the only ones having sex.”

“Damn, you’re right.  You and Corey would be fucking like rabbits while the rest of us would be jacking off… mind you, alone and not watching,” Kris laughed.

“Oh, you could watch but I don’t think you’d enjoy it… hey, are Scott and Hayden going?”

“I know Scott said he was but Hayden never said,” Kris replied.

“I think Hayden’s parents are so down with him… you know sleeping with a guy.  The way he puts it is they don’t mind him having a boyfriend just don’t expect to bring him home and sleep with him.”

“Just like mine wouldn’t be down for me bringing Liz home and fucking her brains out,” Kris laughed.

“Kris, I didn’t think my Mom would be either but I think she understands we are basically adults now.”

“Hmmmm…” Kris said and rubbed the hair that was now occupying his chin. “I might just see if Walt and Jenny are up for me bringing Liz home or having her stay during the holidays a few nights.  Matt, I’m in love with her and can feel it.”

“It’s a good feeling, ain’t it?”

“Damn right it is and she sure as hell felt it this weekend.  I could seriously see myself living with her.”

“I could definitely see me living with Corey down the road but let’s just get through this first year and then worry about that when the time comes.”

“Okay but it is fun to dream,” Kris said.

“I hate to ask but any word on Colt?”

“Not that I have heard.  I’m sure Monica was filling his ass full and telling him how great he is while she runs around on him,” Kris said. “Our biggest problem is getting him to see that she’s no good.”

“That could be a big obstacle. Jess said he would do it since he didn’t have a dog in this fight.  So are you cool with it if he comes to his senses?”

“Oh hell yeah I am,” Kris replied. “If he doesn’t, it’s his loss and I’m not going to worry about it.”
