I had a dream that night. I was walking down the street and I started to recognize my surroundings I was on Sunset blvd. that’s when a piece of news paper was blown into my face. When I pulled it off and looked down at the article, I read “After two years, Local teenage age boy reported to be Dead.” There was a picture of me. I remember this, it’s the night I made the decision to go and tell mike that I was alive. Despite the fact that Tyler pretty much reminded me not to return to my old life. I ran down the street heading to the one spot I knew Mike would be. On top of the hill behind his house by our tree, that’s where I found him that night. As I was running the dream changed and I was now on mike’s street miles away from where I was, the dream seam to skip ahead a couple of hours. I didn’t mind. I was still trying to figure out why I was dreaming about this in the first place. I ran past mike’s house and up a couple of blocks to the fire road access at the bottom of the hill. I smelled at the air to see if I could catch a sent of his blood, nothing yet. I continued on and started up the trail to the tree that Mike and I had claimed as our own, as I got close a cold breeze past me giving me chills that stiffened my spine. That’s when I caught his sent, he was here alright. I didn’t want to just run up and scare him, so I slowed my pace down to a light walk. When I got close to him I could hear his voice, he was talking to someone. I crept up slowly so I could hear what he was saying. He was sitting with his back up against the tree, knees pulled to his chest, with his arms crossed, and his face buried in them. He was crying his eyes out, sobbing and trying to catch his breath. I couldn’t help but to start crying myself. That’s when he started talking again. “I’m sorry left you that night Caden… I should have gone with you… maybe I could have protected you… They say that you’re dead but I refuse to believe them, I know you are out there some where, and I wont stop looking for you… I MISS YOU TO MUCH…” By this time I couldn’t take it any more. Tears were flooding my eyes, my knees got weak and I dropped to the floor and started sobbing out loud. Mike got scared from the noise and jumped up to his feet.
“Is…is someone there” His voice trembling now in fear. I couldn’t answer, all I could do was cry.
“I’ve ga gg…got a knife and I’m not afraid to use it” his hand shaking as he reached into his pocket.
Still crying I tried to get a hold of myself. I stood up and walked slowly from the shadows. “I…know… I gave it to you on your … 15th birthday, remember?”
“CADEN!!?” His tears of sadness, now turning into tears of joy. ”Is that you?”
“Yeah it’s me Mikey” I said with a smile on my face.
He ran over and we wrapped our arms around each other squeezing tight, as if we would never let go of one another.
”Oh my god I can’t believe you’re here, this has to be a dream if it’s a dream then please don’t wake me up”
”It’s not a dream Mike”
“So where have you been for two years? I cried myself to sleep every night since then, and spent every waking hour looking for you. I still can’t believe you’re here, right here in front of me. I told everyone you were alive and ok, and that I would never stop looking”
“Mike I need to tell you something ok, I think we should sit down” Mike nodded his head.
We let go of our embrace and walked over to our tree and sat down. I grabbed hold of his hand and looked him in the eyes.
“Um…Caden if you’re going to tell me you’re gay, we already had this talk…remember?” he chuckled lightly.
“Mike I need you to listen to me right now ok?”
“Yeah sure” he tried to put a serious look on his face. We both started laughing.
I told him the whole story about what happened that night, how Tyler saved me by making me a vampire and all the new things I’ve learned and places I’ve been.
”Wait… you’re a VAMPIRE?” he looked like he didn’t believe me, then it turned from belief to anger
“You’re going to tell me that for the past two years I’ve been searching for you and dying inside every day I couldn’t find you. That you have been running around town and traveling around the world, and you couldn’t even come tell me…YOU ASSHOLE how could you put me through this pain and suffering like that?” He looked sad and disconnected from me.
“Look Mike, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I don’t know how many times it will take before you believe me but I truly am. I only ask that you forgive me, and Mike I also want you to know that I’m never going to leave you again. I will always be here to protect you, I will always be here to protect you, I will always be here to protect you…
I woke up in a cold sweat, with Tyler trying to dry my body off with a towel, poor guy he must have woken up with his arms around me covered in my sweat.
“Oh good you’re awake, I was beginning to think something was wrong”
“I’m ok it was a dream, it felt so real Ty, but I’ll be ok… look I know I said that we would spend the next two days together here in the room, but I have to go. I have to find Mike. I have to know he is ok, that he’s alive. He never stopped looking for me Tyler, not for one day. When I went to tell him that night I was live I told him I would always be there for him to protect him” tears began to rundown my cheeks.
Tyler wrapped the over my shoulders and gave me a hug and a sweet kiss on the lips. “Honey I understand. Mike means a lot to me too, and if you want to spend the next two days searching for him then I will be right there by your side every step of the way. I love you”
“I love you too”
He gave me five kisses one after the other “But before we go anywhere I need to get you in the shower your stinky” Hehehe. Tyler giggled while waving his hand in front of his face.
“Ok fine but no funny stuff, we have to get going” I said smiling.
Tyler pulled me off the bed and led me to the shower. After the water was warm we jumped in and let the warm water run down our bodies. I couldn’t help but to stare at him as the droplets of water ran down his perfect ass. Tyler caught me staring at him and then looked down to see I was starting to get hard.
, then reached for the shampoo putting some in his hands and then in mine. We washed our hair and when I was lathering up my body, Tyler began to wash my back for me. “Here let me help you out stinky” he laughed and continued to wash me. I couldn’t take it any more the feeling I was getting from him touching me was driving me crazy. So I dropped the soap and bent over to pick it up, leaning my soapy ass into his crotch slowly sliding up and down.
“No funny stuff huh, I see your mind has skipped right past that” he said as he reached down and slowly started to stroke me.
“Ok real quick then we have to go”
Tyler and I were moaning in harmony as he stroked me harder and faster, I grinded my ass deeper into him, he pushed back adding his own rhythm to our love making. I could feel Tyler’s cock sliding across my puckered hole, it was driving me insane. My body started to tingle and I shot my loads on the shower floor, Tyler pumped away for a minute before spraying his hot juice on my lower back and ass, rubbing it in with his still pulsing member. I stood up and we kissed for a minute or two before washing off and getting out of the shower. We dried each other off and then we got dressed.
“So where do you want to start looking for Mike?” Tyler said as he put on his shoes.
“I want to go back to the camp ground, and start from there. I will follow any trail that I can find”
“Ok I’ll call the pilot and tell him to get ready to leave” he kissed me and ran to the phone.
I finished getting dressed and met up with him just as he was hanging up. We raced each other downstairs. We jumped into the helicopter and were off. Before I knew it we were there. The pilot told us he couldn’t land here and told us he had to find another spot.
“That’s not going to work. I want you to take it down a little closer and hold it steady, you got it?” I told the pilot, he did what he was told and got us as close as possible.
Tyler gave me a funny look “you’re not going to jump from here are you?”
“Don’t be silly, were going down this rope” I tied off the rope and opened the door. I was hit with a rush of wind and the sound of the blades whizzing above my head.
“I don’t know if I can do this Caden?”
“Ok, jump on my back and hold on tight, I’ll take us both down.”
“Look I’ve done this a hundred times, so don’t worry we’ll be fine”
Tyler still looked scared but climbed on any way, holding me a little too tight but I wasn’t going to say anything. I made sure he was ready before repelling us down to the ground.
“See that wasn’t to bad was it?” I said as he let go of his strangle hold he had on me.
“I guess it was cool” he said smiling.
“Dam right it was cool… now let’s go see what we can find”
We walked into the camp site where I was the other night, the search team that came here yesterday had trampled the entire area. All of their foot prints mixed with the others. It was hard to tell each one apart.
“Hey Caden, come over here and take a look at this” he was about thirty feet away from the camp site.
“What is it?” Tyler was looking down at the ground.
I looked down to see what he was looking at. “So there’s a foot print”
“Look closer Caden, The one thing that caught my eye is that it’s different from the ones over there these seam to be weighed down a lot more than the others. This person was carrying something it that direction. That’s all I needed to hear. I started following the footsteps down a dirt trail. We walked for about twenty minutes or so until the stopped and one looked as if it dug into the dirt, then the foot steps disappeared. Tyler and I just stood there for a second, that’s when I caught a faint smell of blood, it was mike I knew that smell any where. I grabbed Tyler’s shoulder catching him by surprise.
“Do you smell that Tyler? IT’S MIKE HE’S CLOSE” I walked into the thick brush, the sent of my friend getting stronger.
“Get the chopper over here Tyler right away, I’m pretty sure he’s hurt”
“Will do” Tyler got on the phone calling the pilot.
“I’m coming Mike, hold on buddy” I trampled bush after bush until I found his body laying there like a rag doll. “Oh my god Mike, who did this to you?” I ran to his side and checked his pulse it was faint but he was alive. He had cuts on his face and a large bump on the head with blood stains around it. I picked him up in my arms and carried him out of the brush.
“Oh no, Caden is he ok?” Tyler’s face filled with sadness.
“I’m not sure but he needs help right now, his life signs are faint”
“The chopper is just up that hill in a clearing” I nodded in response and we walked in that direction.
We quickly got him into the chopper and Tyler told the pilot to take us to UCLA medical center. We took off and headed in that direction.
“UCLA that’s to far away, there are hospitals closer than that”
“That may be true, but there are people we can trust there”
“Ok I just hope he makes it”
“Hey he’ll be fine, he has a strong spirit like someone I know” he placed his hand on my shoulder.
I sat there on the floor holding Mike’s hand with Tyler sitting in the chair behind me,
lightly petting my hair. When we landed at the hospital we were greeted by a doctor he had the protection mark on his neck. Two other Doctors put Mike on a crash cart and took him inside. I got up to go with him when the doctor stopped me.
“I’m Dr. Casspine, I will take care of your friend from here. We have to run tests before we know what’s wrong and you don’t have the time to wait here, why don’t you head home and I will call you when we know something, OK. Don’t worry sir I’ll teat him like he was my own brother, because he sort of is” he winked at me. I don’t know there was something about his voice that made me feel I could trust him with Mike’s life.
“Thank you doctor, my name is Caden, here is a card with my number as soon as you know anything. Please give me a call.” I handed him the card and shook his hand.
“Ok, no problem sir, but if you don’t mind I must go” he lightly bowed his head and ran to the hospital doors.
I shut the door and we were off. Tyler and I were silent most of the way home, both of our thoughts were with Mike. Not before long and we were home and back to our room Tyler had grabbed a bottle of rum on the way up and we sat in the room taking shots, and we shared old memories for a while. And spent the rest of the night just holding each other lying in the bed kissing every so often, before the sun came up the phone rang. I reached over faster than lightning picking up the phone. “Hello…………Yes I understand………………..UM OK, I’ll see you tomorrow” I hung up the phone and just sat there in silence.
“Well who was it?” Tyler said poking me in the ribs.
I wrapped my arms around Tyler squeezing him tight.
“It was Dr. Casspine, he said that Mike was in a coma and he would tell me more tomorrow.”
