03: Moving Furniture, Earth and the Heavens, All in 10 Hours

 

I knew I wasn’t finished for the day, even after the long day I’d had. Since Kitty and Chalise had cleared the rest for takeoff, they’d all be sure to be climbing into the cockpit, as it were. I knew that Cate was still discussing the events of the day on the phone with Kitty and Chalise, as she often did, so I was waiting before going to bed until she was available. I figured I’d have to dedicate tonight to either her or Shani, although I was pretty sure I’d be spending it with Cate. As such, I was rooting around in the kitchen again, looking for yet another late night snack.

“Alex, where the hell are you?” I heard Cate yell from upstairs. “Come on up, we’ve got a few things to discuss.”

Uh-oh, I thought. That doesn’t sound very good. I grabbed a couple extra cookies and hurried upstairs expecting the worst, although I didn’t know what I could possibly have done wrong this time.

I finally walked into the room to find it filled with a few people. Cate was sitting impatiently on the bed, with Shani lying down behind her observing Cate and I. Allison was looking on anxiously nearby, while Anh was doing something in the corner looking very nonchalant. Gail walked up behind me, I guess to see what the fuss was about. It’s hard to be subtle about anything with this many women around.

“Yeah, what’d I do now?” I asked.

“You are one naïve rube,” Cate announced flatly. “Do you have any idea what your silly, high-and-mighty ‘I’m not going to ask anyone any questions about their private lives’ has done?”

The other women all glanced at Cate’s reaction. Anh cleared her throat meaningfully and Cate glanced guiltily at her.

“Hey, I thought you were supposed to be supporting my decisions here?” I asked, feeling like I could defend myself. “Besides, don’t go calling me names before you even tell me what it is that I’m supposed to have done.”

Cate sighed, trying to compose herself. “You’re right, as usual. It seems you once again did the right thing, though without realizing it. I was talking about things with your two girlfriends when Kitty let something slip. I was surprised by it, so I started pushing. Finally Chalise admitted the same thing. It seems you’ve been making such a big thing about not revealing what Kitty did with Darrell on their dates, that they both felt you weren’t interested in knowing that it was both of their first times. You took their virginities along with your own yesterday,” she informed me.

I looked around in confusion. “What? Surely that can’t be correct. They didn’t—”

“Alex,” Cate said, again sighing dramatically, “most women nowadays don’t bear the traditional hymen that used to mark virgins. At least not physically active women. Actually, I’m not sure they were that common in the old days either, aside from the privileged daughters of the wealthy. Both Chalise and Kitty were virgins, just like I am. But they didn’t think it was appropriate to share that important fact with you because you made such a big deal out of treating everyone so ‘fairly’.”

“Wow,” I said as I sat down, considering what this might mean.

Seeing my expression, Anh turned to Cate. “Did complain about their treatment?” she asked simply.

“Well, no. In fact they said it was everything they could ever have dreamed of. You apparently did a wonderful job, Alex.”

“Then what issue?” Anh asked.

“That was my point when I said he always manages to do the right thing, even if he’s not aware of it. By being so gallant about ignoring their apparent expansive history with a string of past lovers, he treated them just the way he should have. Probably better because he didn’t draw any unnecessary attention to them.”

“That issue done then,” Anh announced with a note of finality. “What next?”

Cate looked up at her, a bit taken aback, and she sat silently while she tried to reorient her thoughts.

“So why am I surrounded by other virgins,” I asked, still not quite able to put this behind me. “I’d thought everyone was busy having sex nowadays.”

“Apparently it’s not so widespread, but I think you are just attracted to unique individuals,” Cate said, explaining her own theory on the subject. “They both have their own perspectives, and weren’t very impressed with the typical guys they’d been dating. Kitty thought no one ever appreciated her since they always seemed to look right past her, so I can see why she’d pick up on your whole ‘don’t react to me based on what others say about me’. Chalise has a history of trying to fend off guys that think she’ll fall on her knees if they act like jerks. Neither one was anxious to give themselves to anyone they weren’t attracted to.” That made sense to me, and fit in with what I knew about both girls.

“And you?” I asked, smiling at her with what I can only assume was a self-satisfied smirk.

“I think I told you before, I’ve always wanted to find someone just like you. I figured it might take some time, but I assumed it was only a matter of time. However, seeing everything we did in New Orleans I slowly came to realize that there wasn’t anyone else like you, that you are one in about seven billion. That settled it for me.”

I simply nodded in agreement. I could certainly understand that view.

“So, any ideas on who’s next?” I asked playfully, trying to finish this somewhat awkward conversation. I was looking meaningfully at her, clearly indicating who I wanted to be next.

“Hey, don’t look at me,” she protested, gesturing at her waist, which confused me. I looked up at her face to try to parse her meaning. She sighed tiredly.

“I mean I’ve got my period, you’re about a day late,” she said. “As much as I’m anxious to finally have a go at you myself, I hardly want my first time to be a virtual bloodbath,” she answered, smiling weakly. “Besides, as much as I’d appreciate being next, I think it’s more important for you to try it with one of your women.”

Once again, I looked at her in confusion, although this time I was joined by the others in the room.

“You always manage to trigger some new ability every time you have a stressful event in your life,” Cate explained. “I’m thinking that significant events might have a similar effect. The fact that you suddenly started transmitting physical sensations telepathically the other night just confirms that theory. I think you should make love to Shani since she’s ready and anxious, as well as ready to conceive. When you do, I wouldn’t mind being here to watch just so I can observe any effects it might have. In fact, maybe you should pick one other as well, just in case you have the stamina to do more than just one.”

I glanced at Shani, raising a single shaggy eyebrow. Caroline had never managed to arrange my promised eyebrow treatment yet.

“I entered my most fertile period two days ago,” Shani informed me, “so I should still be ready to conceive.”

“I understand you’d like this to be personal,” Cate said, “but I suspect you’ll find that trying to get pregnant isn’t so much about the moment as it’s about trying it over and over, whatever the circumstances.”

I simply nodded sagely, taking this all in. “What do you think, Shani? Would you rather this be private between us?”

“Alex, quite frankly I’d love to spend as much time with you as I can. Privately would be ideal, but I also value my sisters here almost as much as I treasure my time with you. Plus Cate brings up a good point. I think having several people here for this makes sense, especially since that’s how we’ve been handling it since we first got here. Besides, doing it that way will take the pressure off of everyone else afterwards.”

So we reached a conclusion. Since we’d been sleeping two women plus Cate every night for the past couple of weeks, we kept to that. We decided on Shani and Gail joining me tonight, since Gail would have to return home the next day, and wouldn’t be available for the rest of the week. Anh laughed as she headed out the door, saying it was just as well, as her old lady parts weren’t quite active enough for the thorough ‘loving’ she was sure was going to follow. We all laughed as I stripped off my clothes, since Anh’s ‘old lady parts’ have been working fine so far. Gail once more folded my clothes for me as I took them off.

We all settled down, lying on top of the covers since it was warmer tonight than it had been. Gail was behind me while Shani snuggled into my arms. Cate lay on the outside. I glanced at Cate to see if she was nervous about Gail’s presence. However she didn’t seem to be perturbed by it, so I didn’t worry about it too much. If she reacted I’d deal with it when it occurred.

I started kissing Shani, just taking my time and not trying to move too fast. I nuzzled her neck and kissed her nose and eyes.

“You know,” she said, “don’t feel pressured. You aren’t likely to do anything tonight, so you shouldn’t think about—”

“Shani,” I said, kissing her to keep her quiet, “when I’m with you, you’re all I think about. You should know how I operate by now. I like to focus on what’s important. Babies aren’t important right now. Without the love that we feel for each other there won’t be any babies. I’m solely focusing on you right now. Now shut up and kiss me back.”

She did, and I kissed her simply to keep her from feeling the need to reassure me of anything. We just made out, as I rubbed her arms and her sides, keeping everything light. After a bit I leaned down and nibbled on her nipples which produced a quick shiver in her, causing her skin to prickle. I grinned up at her, watching as I played with her nipple with my tongue. She couldn’t really see me as I did this, but she recognized what I was doing and that I was watching her, taking delight in her reactions. As she was reacting pretty well, I figured I’d better move on. I started to shuffle downwards but she reached out and stopped me.

“You don’t need to go down on me tonight,” she whispered. “Hearing you with Kitty and Chalise has had us all excited for the last day and a half. I’m already about to explode and I’m drenched I’m so excited. Just go ahead and do it, I’m ready and I’ve been waiting for this for ages.”

I grinned at her and resumed my position over her. “Do you want to be on top or—?”

“No, I want you on top. It just feels more natural with you in the position of power. We can play with different positions later, but for now just love me like men and women have for ages.”

I kissed her again and then leaned back. Despite having had sex repeatedly since Friday afternoon, I was already erect. I moved back to give myself room, and instantly two hands readied me for entry. Cate backed off since Gail had beaten her there, taking my erection and moving it into position. She swiped the head along Shani’s slit, getting it lubricated as well as teasing us both. She ended up running it against Shani’s clit before returning it to the point of entry. When she stopped moving it around I simply glanced at Shani, mouthed the words ‘I love you’ and pressed inward. She couldn’t see it, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.

I felt myself slip easily into her, as her flesh both yielded and grasped me tightly. She was right. She was certainly well lubricated, and with little effort I slowly eased myself further and further into her, moving slowly but steadily on, feeling her pussy gripping me and welcoming me in. Part way in she raised her hips, trying to hurry my movements, but I continued to slide steadily in until I finally bottomed out. Finally, I lay fully on her and kissed her, just a simple kiss, no tongue at all, but letting her know that this was an act of love between us.

After a moment I eased back, retreating from her. I could feel her tender flesh resisting, seeming to hang onto me as if to entice me back. There was no worry there, I wasn’t about to go anywhere else for some time.

I started a slow back and forth motion, pausing both at her entrance and at the point of maximum penetration. When I was fully in, I would wiggle my hips and grind my pubic bone against her, another detail I picked up from my reading, but it was hard to tell what effect it had. At least it distracted me slightly, helping my concentration. I noticed several hands: Shani’s, holding an arm and running across my chest, Gail’s running over my ass, and Cate’s along my torso and playing with my hair. I could feel the love we all shared being expressed in me.

Shani gave a little shiver when I bottomed out again, and as I drew out I pulled back slightly, and quickly two hands moved in between us, both zeroing in on her nipples, gently tweaking them.

“You know,” Shani gasped, “there’s so much more full body contact here compared to what we’ve done in the past. I can feel your essence coursing through you and flowing into me. I can feel your heartbeat in your cock as it fills me, and my skin is alive with the sensations of your essence. My skin feels like it’s rippling with your energy.”

“I can feel it too,” Gail told us. “I can feel your love focused on her. It’s like a living thing, flowing out of you and bathing her skin. It makes my hand tingle as I hold you.”

“I’m well aware that I don’t share any of Shani and Gail’s abilities,” Cate said, “but it’s like I can feel it too. Except for me it’s like the comfort I always feel when you hold me, except now it feels like it’s encompassing Shani as well. It’s hard to feel jealous when I see your love enveloping all of us. I’m glad I didn’t go first, as it’s a humbling thing to know you care so much for everyone you’re with, and that soon I’ll feel that within myself.”

I wondered about that and considered whether my sister was really feeling my energy or if she simply wanted to. Like she wanted so much to be a part of what we were sharing that her mind was letting her feel a part of it. I didn’t doubt that she was sincere, but I just couldn’t picture how she could feel my energy moving between other people. However, I wasn’t about to let myself be distracted from what I was doing.

With that I leaned in and lay fully on Shani again, letting her soak up this supposed energy I was giving off. I kissed her lips, again keeping it simple. I didn’t want any excess tongue motion to distract her. Instead I wanted the steady skin contact to let her know that I was here with her in this moment, and that I was completely here for her.

In the meantime I sped up my thrusting motions. I wasn’t exactly thrusting, the motions were still steady and regular, but I was using a more natural rhythm now. Gail and Cate molded themselves against us, pressing their flesh against our flesh, trying, I suppose, to feel what we were feeling through me. Shani shivered, gasped, and then her whole body began to shake, producing wonderful sensations around my cock as her pussy began to vibrate around me. I drove into her and held steady, allowing her flesh to do what it needed without me trying to fight it. Her orgasm passed after a few moments, though she retained a slight glassy look, furthered by her inability to look directly at me despite our being literally nose to nose. The only way she could avoid my glare was to squint her eyes and let them glass over.

I began stroking into her again, and she responded right away, setting up a counter tempo against me while she clutched me more fully against her. I could feel Cate and Gail’s breath against my flesh, their flesh touching mine, their nipples boring into my back and sides, and their palms gliding along our skin.

Shani shivered again and her pussy began to dance against my flesh once more. I had to hold steady, not simply to allow her to orgasm around me, but also to allow me to concentrate on not cumming too soon. As she finished her orgasm I began to move at a quicker pace, still pressing fully into her but doing it faster, driving into her and holding myself against her when I was fully inside.

I noticed that Cate and Gail’s breaths were beginning to quicken and their hands began stroking us more hurriedly. Shani rolled her head back, relieving her of having to keep looking at me. I couldn’t tell, but I think her eyes might have rolled back inside her head. I kept driving into her and she started shaking again, only this time she started thrashing, almost like she was having an epileptic fit. This was simply too much for me, and I started slamming into her with quick short strokes, wanting to finish quickly because I couldn’t tell how much longer Shani was going to be here with us.

As her pussy quivered around me, drawing me further into her, her juices easing my rapid motion in and out, I felt my balls begin to draw up. At that moment I shoved into her hard, clutching her to me and called out her name just as I felt myself let loose. I could feel semen drive along my shaft, squirting out and filling her. Just as it left my body at the apex of my thrust, suddenly a flash went off before my eyes. It was like I was seeing stars exploding, but I knew they weren’t stars because stars are nowhere near that magnificent.

I kept thrusting, but the motions were automatic and I was too focused on the sensations overwhelming me to concentrate on what my hips were doing. All I was aware of was the bolts of energy shooting along the length of my cock, exploding out of me and traveling through both of us only to flash in front of my eyes.

It seemed to go on forever, and I was intimately aware of each excruciatingly slow pulse as I pumped into her body, but it also seemed to be over in an instant. Suddenly the flashes in front of my eyes were too much and there was a large flare in my brain. I could feel each of my girls connected to me and flowing through me. I seemed to disconnect from reality for a moment, and then I sort of lost my awareness for a few seconds.

When I could finally focus on things around me again, I was aware that we were all lying in a mass, all cuddled together in a damp heap, each of us trembling.

“Shit, did you feel that, Cate?” Gail asked.

“Hell, yeah,” my sister gasped. “That was no damn orgasm.”

“Tell me about it,” Shani weakly said. “My whole body is still shuddering and my brain is tingling. Hell, if that’s what sex with you is like, then I’m never getting out of this bed again.”

“Pardon me if I don’t go next,” Gail gasped, “but I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet. I’ll need to rest up for that.”

“Hell, I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready for that again,” I told them.

I suddenly felt a tiny giggle in my head as I heard a tinkling little voice.

Wow, I felt that one all the way down here. I’m not sure quite what you did, but I just had an unprovoked mini-orgasm. So you finally had intercourse with one of your chosen?

Yeah, Patricia, I just made love with Shani,’ I told her. ‘She was the first of what looks like a long line waiting for me. Everyone’s been waiting for a while.’ Shani sat up, watching me as I spoke telepathically with Patricia.

Well, if what I felt was an indication of what we all have waiting for us, then I think I’ll take the next train up and see you in the morning,’ she teased. At least, I thought she was teasing.

Did you feel it when I made love with Kitty and Chalise?’ I asked her. ‘How did the two of them compare? How was it different?

Yeah, I felt it when you made love to them. In fact, I even noted the time in case you wanted to check with me. But that was just a gentle tickling, like a very nice feeling washing over me. This was a full-fledged orgasm I had just lying here. I woke up to some odd sensations, then I felt a couple of small tremors, and then I felt a big cum.’

I think the first sensations were when Shani came a couple of times,’ I told her. ‘The bigger one must have been when I came.’

“Did you share that?” Shani asked me.

“Share what?” Gail asked. Cate sat up and looked at me, wondering what had just transpired.

Pardon me a moment, Patricia. We seem to have something happening here,’ I told her.

Patricia, I heard you talking to Alex before he had a chance to share it with us. Did you try to contact us?’ Shani asked. ‘Wait a second,’ she said, and then I didn’t hear anything for a second.

“Damn, I can talk to her without you,” Shani informed us.

“Holy fuck,” Gail stated in amazement.

“But I didn’t do anything, and I didn’t feel you conversing in the back of my head like I usually do,” I argued.

“It doesn’t matter, Alex. Apparently that massive orgasm we had affected me. I don’t think I need you to communicate with the other women anymore,” Shani excitedly informed me. “Here, let me try Brooke.”

“Yep, Brooke says she felt it as well. I explained what I was experiencing. Did you hear us conversing?” Shani asked.

“No, I didn’t,” I said, sitting up and considering this new information.

“Come on, guys. I need information here. What’s going on?” Cate asked. “Damn, I knew something was going to occur tonight. So Shani is using telepathy on her own without going through you?”

“Yeah, Patricia said she shared our orgasm even with the hundreds of miles between us,” Shani explained. “What’s more, when she contacted Alex I could hear her even though she was speaking to him. When I tried, I could contact her independently of Alex. Alex says he couldn’t even hear us talking.”

“Man, you’ve got to do me next,” Gail said, contradicting her previous announcement in her growing excitement about the possibilities.

“Quick, tell me all about it. I want all the details,” Cate informed us. I could clearly see that sleep was out for the immediate future, despite the fact that I was feeling exhausted from a full day and several orgasms. There was clearly a lot to discuss before Cate or the other girls would let me sleep tonight.


 

Sunday was a surprise. When I woke up and roused myself, ready to head downstairs, everyone told me to just take a quick shower and get ready on my own, as they all had to get dressed. I thought that was odd, as we’d all done our morning preparations together before, but they were insistent. When I reached the dining room everything was sheer efficiency, with Mom and Anh shoving food and orange juice at me as fast as I could manage. Everyone else seemed to be nibbling at the sides.

What was surprising was the appearance of a delivery truck during breakfast. I didn’t even know they made deliveries on Sundays. More surprising was when we all went outside and my Mom threw her arms around my neck and said “Surprise”, and gave me a big hug and a kiss. Seems they’d ordered me an over-sized bed for all the ladies sleeping with me. Unfortunately, we’d grown up with two girls’ rooms for my three sisters, with me having the smallest bedroom. That officially ended today. Part of getting a new bed involved switching all of my possessions, as I’d now need a larger room to accompany the larger bed.

However, the larger room I would be switching for wouldn’t be Becky and Melinda’s bedroom that my girls used, or even Cate’s bedroom. No, my parents insisted on moving out of their master bedroom to give me room to be with all of my girls. They insisted they’d be fine taking Cate’s room, which was larger than mine. The girls’ room would still serve as an overflow for my girls, and my old room would largely remain idle, as it didn’t appear she intended to use it for anything other than a walk in closet. I guess my two eldest sisters had just been demoted to the couches downstairs.

“What about Cate?” I stupidly asked.

“Like you need to ask,” Mom replied, lightly punching my shoulder. “You couldn’t get her out of your room with a pitchfork.”

“You’d better believe it,” Cate echoed, confirming the sentiment. “I plan on sticking around for some time to come.”

However, the changeover entailed a lot of movement. “We just felt terrible watching all of you crowded on that teeny tiny bed; having everyone lying on top of you because they didn’t have room to lie down. If one of you rolled over slightly they’d fall out of bed. You managed to rotate to try to manage it, but even that got more difficult as there were more and more of you. Now with Gail, Rebecca and Brooke it’s way too much,” she informed me.

“But—” I began, trying to organize an argument against something I knew we all needed.

“No buts,” my mother argued, putting her hand up to stifle any further objections. “And hopefully no more butts falling out of bed,” she laughed. “We’d ask you to help, but you have too much scheduled today. All of us are going to move everything between the rooms. The workmen will haul the various beds around, tossing your old one and moving ours into Cate’s old room. Becky should arrive soon. Chalise, Kitty and Becky will accompany you, while Caroline helps us. Your sister Cate is going to be busy as the ‘animal guy’ is coming over soon to help us begin organizing and building cages for them all. Your father is going to help build them. I spoke with Caroline and she even arranged for Darrell to come help us build an animal shed inside the garage. There’s going to be no more cars in the garage for quite some time.”

“Hurry up and get dressed, everyone will be here soon. Everyone has things to do and you have to get moving to make it to the hospital on time. Becky tells me that Ryan fellow has a lot planned for today, and I have a feeling it’s going to take a long time to get you going, since everyone is going to want to talk to you before you go.” I hurried off at Mom’s insistence, getting no help as everyone started moving in different directions trying to get organized.

As I hurried to get dressed, people were moving things all around me. I was forbidden to help organize any of my own stuff.

“No worry, Cate tell us where you hide you porn stash,” Anh told me, smiling at my bewildered expression. “We pack it up, but me no think it been used since New Orleans.”

The new bed consisted of a frame holding two regular King-size mattresses, so there was plenty of room for everyone, assuming I didn’t add anyone else of course. However I wouldn’t have time to stay and watch it’s construction, as I was quickly hustled out of the house.

Soon people started arriving. First Rebecca, Brooke and her kids arrived, although they were soon pressed into service and didn’t have a chance to swarm me. Then Becky arrived with everyone from her place. Finally Kitty arrived, accompanied by her mother Martha and a very confused looking older man that I assumed was Kitty’s father. She apologized for being late, observing everything that was taking place.

“This is my father, Fredrick Washerstein,” Kitty informed me. “Dad, this is Chalise and my shared boyfriend, Alex Jennings.” He gave me an odd look before reluctantly shaking my hand.

“I was informed late last night that I was not only meeting my daughter’s new boyfriend, whom I’d never heard of before, but that I was helping to reorganize your house. Something about making room for several women?” he asked pointedly. But he was quickly prevented from pressing me for answers by Martha, who hushed him up before giving me a big hug of her own.

“Fred, heavens, we already told you everything that you need to know. You’ll get all the details eventually, but there’s way too much to get done this morning to waste time glowering at Alex. There’s some construction in the garage that needs to be done.”

“But what’s Alex going to be doing? Isn’t he even helping?” Fredrick asked.

“Heavens, no,” his wife told him. “He’s got to get to the hospital to have a quick brain scan done.” When her husband looked at her in confusion she continued, “They want to see what makes him so oddly attractive, why he’s always so charming and debonair, and why everyone seems to trust him so much.”

“I’m not so sure I…,” Fredrick started to complain before he was pushed straightaway into the garage.

Darrell walked up and shook my hand before pulling me into a big bear hug.

“Hey there, Alex, glad I’ve got a chance to help you out for a change. Thanks a lot for helping Chalise and my mom out of a difficult situation, and also for everything that you’ve done for me.”

“No hard feelings over Kitty?” I asked, just to make sure there were no harbored resentments.

“No, I realized pretty quickly that I couldn’t compete with you where she was concerned. But now that we’ve worked that out we’ve become fairly good friends. She’s been talking with me about how to bone up on my studies before school starts in the fall, so that I can actually achieve something when I go to college.”

“Well, I’m glad it is all working out. I had a feeling you’d turn out to be a really good guy,” I told him, as Caroline gave me a big hug of her own. She was about to say something when she was interrupted by her daughter. Kitty and Chalise quickly dragged Gail over to confront me.

“Instruction time,” they informed me. When I looked questioningly at them they said “Lying lessons, remember?” Kitty’s mother was nearby and overheard them.

“You want to teach your boyfriend to lie to you?” she asked unbelievingly.

“If it means he’ll be able to lie convincingly to us, then yes,” her daughter argued with her. “It’ll mean that he’s better able to lie when it’s important. And that means he’ll be better able to protect us and those around him.”

Martha didn’t seem convinced. “He’s going to protect you by lying to you?”

“Mom, what’s he going to lie to us about? Girls following him around? Sleeping with other women? All he has to do is talk to us and we’ll probably agree with it. Besides, he’s going to be much too busy sleeping with his mysterious older women to ever have time to fool around with any roving trollop. No, we want him to be able to avoid difficult situations that occur when respectable women throw themselves at him in public. He’s continually finding himself in embarrassing predicaments through no fault of his own. He’s currently a terrible liar, simply telling people the truth and daring them not to believe it. He needs to learn better techniques if he’s going to protect a continually growing list of dependent adults,” she explained, as if that’d make perfect sense to a mother. Martha just rolled her eyes but avoided further discussion, and she watched the lessons unfold from the background.

“OK, Alex,” Gail began, “the secret is to project confidence when you lie. You have to feel the lie. Really believe the lie.” She turned to her friend. “Kitty, tell him a lie just to illustrate the point.”

“OK,” Kitty said, turning to face me square on. “Alex, I’ve never ever had sex,” she stated, holding back a smirk only mere seconds before she finally broke out laughing hysterically. “OK, OK, give me a second. I’ll get this right,” she gasped, trying to regain her breath. She looked in my eyes once again.

“I’ve never had sex with Darrell,” she stated, looking me right in the eyes.

“Very good,” Gail immediately congratulated her. “See how convincing she was. How you could see the conviction in her eyes? Always establish good eye contact when you lie. OK, now you try lying to her, Alex.”

I thought this was a good case of the pot calling the kettle black. Cate had told me last night that she hadn’t had sex with Darrell. But then maybe I was being too literal. After all, I’d been having lots of sex with everyone until Friday, we just hadn’t had intercourse yet. But none of this mattered. I needed to concentrate on my lying if I was going to convincingly lie to my girlfriends. They were expecting me to get this!

“Alright,” I said, taking a deep breath and settling myself in front of her. “Kitty, I’ll remain pure and chaste until the day I marry.” I tried hard but I just couldn’t maintain a straight face and soon broke out laughing.

“No, that’s not it, Alex,” Gail stressed. “Remember that you’ll be lying not to the individual, but in order to protect your women. You’ll be trying to keep them out of trouble, to keep them out of harm’s way. Now try again.” Once again I took a deep breath and looked deep into Kitty’s eyes.

That certainly put the whole thing into a different perspective for me, so I stopped joking and began to take this seriously. I couldn’t afford to continue to do this off the cuff, with only a wing and a prayer.

“Kitty, I will NEVER have sex before I’m officially wed,” I stated unequivocally. All the women applauded me, excluding Martha of course. We’d managed to attract more women watching the lessons as we went on. They all seemed to pick up on what was going on quickly enough.

“Very good,” Gail enthused. “Now convince Martha.”

I turned and walked over to Kitty’s mom, who suddenly looked a bit panicky. I gently but firmly took hold of both her arms, looked her in the eyes and said, “Martha, I promise I won’t subject your daughter to any harm, and will keep her from compromising any of the ideals you both hold so dear,” I stated clearly.

Again everyone cheered and whistled. I heard a shout of “Way to lie, dude!” from Melinda, while Anh announced, “Lie to me, baby, Lie to me.”

Martha looked shocked for a few moments, then finally smiled and looked at me, again in the eyes.

“It’s strange, but when you say that, I honestly feel better. I seem to believe it in my soul, even though I know you’re lying your socks off.”

“Part of a good lie involves including some truth to it,” Gail explained. “Either a partial truth, or simply an honest emotion of what you’re trying to protect by lying. That’s why husbands lie so well to wives they cheat on. They think they’re being kind to their wives by not revealing the truth.

“Now, it’s also very important to keep the lie as simple as possible. Think KISS; Keep It Simple Stupid. Nothing trips up a lie like the complications of trying to remember the various details of multiple lies. In your case it’s going to be complicated by the fact that much of what you’ll want to lie about will be blatantly true, and is likely to be repeated when it occurs again with the next woman throwing herself at your feet.”

“Hey, what’s this about more women? Doesn’t he already have enough?” Martha protested, but everyone present simply ignored her.

“You’ve got to keep the possible confusion of details to a minimum,” Gail said. “Try to tell partial truths or keep the lies all along a similar trail, or along a track you can easily remember. Worst case scenario, let us all know what you’re lying about so we can help you remember your lies for you.”

“How could he—” Martha began to ask before her objection was quickly trampled over.

“Try explaining to Caroline why a decorated police officer would suddenly throw herself at your feet.” I walked over to Chalise’s mother and again held her with one hand and stared deeply into her eyes.

“Caroline, it was all a misunderstanding. We have a history of teasing each other. She’s actually a friend of my aunt’s who’s been teasing me with silly exaggerations for years.”

“Very good,” Gail said. “You built a believable premise, one you could reinforce with the officer in question,” she stated, without sounding awkward talking about herself in the third person, “and it didn’t entail an excess of detail that’d trip you up in the future, just a vague, non-specific reference to a tenuous personal connection.” Caroline turned to the girls standing around and announced, “I think he’s finished. He’s lying with the best of them now.”

“One last one,” Gail continued, “Try explaining to her how it is that you sometimes translate for Anh before she finishes speaking?” Caroline’s eyes got bigger, and I wondered whether anyone else was near enough to also hear these questions, but I kept my eyes fixed on hers.

“We’ve simply gotten to know one another fairly well since she’s been here helping my family,” I explained. “I can figure out a lot of what she’s going to say just because we share the same kind of humor and thoughts.” Everyone cheered, and my girlfriends and women all came up and kissed me.

“My hero,” Chalise crooned, “he lies just like the best cheating spouse or crooked politician. You lie like a catholic priest at a Save-the-Children rally!” I just had to blush at that one. I may have graduated a level in lying, but I couldn’t avoid being embarrassed. I guess that’d probably be the next lesson.

“All right, it’s good you’ve taught my son to lie so well I’ll never be able to believe him when he says a girlfriend ate his homework, but we’ve got work to do,” my father insisted, dispersing the assembled crowd.

“Hey, I’ve learned from the best,” Kitty defended me. “If Alex is willing to protect us all by lying to us and everyone else, then the least I can do is eat his homework.” We all laughed about it as my father headed off grumbling before Fredrick figured out what was going on.

“Now, Alex, we’ll have to go over how to cheat at a lie detector as well. I can see how that would help you, as I’m sure you are going to be facing either the police or a hungry press sooner or later, but that’s for another time.” I told her that I’d try to be ready when the time came. As we broke up, Melinda caught up with me.

“Alex, I wanted to finally discuss that research I’ve been doing. I really wanted to do a whole presentation for you, but it seems like everything is getting away from us. This whole ‘stay out of Cate’s way’ is really making things difficult.” Melinda’s mocking complaint had perhaps a bit too much authenticity.

“Frankly, there are no others with your particular abilities. There are lots of reports of telepathy, but nothing is similar to what you’ve experienced, so I’d doubt that any of it is legit. Now, I did find some interesting things about the visions though.” With that, Melinda pulled some pictures out of a small notebook.

I saw Cate advancing to listen to what our sister was telling me. I glanced at Becky as well, but she just waved me off, apparently she’d already heard this presentation before.

“If you look at these pictures,” Melinda continued, “there have been many cases of people trying to take pictures of people’s souls or their auras. One such branch is called Kirlian photography, although those are produced using electric charges or light exposure rather than being an honest attempt to capture a true image of someone’s aura. These are all examples of one variety of photographic proof or another. Would you get your girls to look at them and see if any of them have any bearing on what it is that they are seeing?”

I called Allison and Gail over since they were nearby, and had them examine Melinda’s pictures.

“Nope, sorry, but these all appear to be tricks of low-level lighting,” Allison said. “What we see is full of color and shows a great degree of detail in a whole range of new colors.”

“I thought so,” Melinda said, then turned to my mother, standing a ways away from her. “Can you see what’s behind Mom over there?”

“Uh, no, I don’t really see anything. I mean, actually I see a lot of things, but I can’t see anything specific that you might be referring to,” Allison explained.

“Oh, actually I had Mom hide a small grill. I was thinking maybe you were seeing simple things like infrared or thermal images in a different spectrum or in different colors, but it sounds like they are completely unrelated. Anyway, that’s about all that I could legitimately come up with. I’m sorry, Alex, but you really do seem to be out there by yourself, as no one else seems to have reported anything similar to what you’re doing or what your girls are seeing.”

“That’s OK, Melinda. You did a good job at this. Simply knowing that there isn’t anyone hiding out, ready to pop up at any moment tells us a lot,” I informed her. “Also, the information you turned up about our activities in New Orleans was a lot of help as well.” I stepped up to her and gave her a big hug to show my appreciation for what she’d done, glancing over at Cate as I did so to make sure she wouldn’t lose it over my actions.

Melinda’s face brightened considerably from my simple actions, reinforcing my idea that I needed to keep everyone busy doing unique tasks for me.

“Look, Melinda, see if you can get together with Becky and see about interviewing students around the campus to see if there might be any potential Watchers or Seers there. You should try to speak with Patricia about it, since she seems to have some actual research on the subject. But it may not be a good idea to call her though, since she’s been so publicly linked to me. Try going through one of the girls. That way you can have a full conversation without anyone being able to track it back to us. We managed to learn a fair amount by observing Gail before she was activated, so if we can duplicate that it would help.” I told her. She seemed to positively glow from her newly assigned task, and she immediately set off for somewhere or something, but I didn’t have the time to worry about it now.

Now that all my tasks were taken care of, Becky hurried us off for the long drive to the Carbondale hospital for our appointment with Ryan and Dr. Padilla. Gail gave me a quick kiss goodbye, “I’ll be gone by the time you get back. I’ll be sure to check out the local clinics,” she told me. “Though Cate and I checked them on the internet; seems they’re pretty limited, shipping most of their stuff off to Chicago to do all the real work.”

“That’s OK,” I argued, “We really don’t expect full services from them. I suspect for the numbers involved we’re going to have to be making deposits at a number of different locations. We can’t very likely expect hundreds of women to all line up at a single clinic to pick up a little reminder of me, now can we?” We both smiled as she bid us goodbye.

Allison and Brooke accompanied us to the hospital. I rode with Kitty, Chalise and Cate, while Allison and Brooke took Allison’s car; Brooke’s looking like it housed two messy kids in it for much too long.

Once we got underway both Kitty and Chalise had the same question.

“So, did you do it with anyone last night?”

Cate just smiled at them like the Cheshire Cat, causing them all to burst into giggles.

“Man, I knew it would be you,” Kitty said, congratulating Cate.

“Hey, it wasn’t me. I was there, but I had a little visitor last night that prevented my own involvement in the festivities.”

“Oh, that’s too bad,” Kitty said, then looked confused. “Then what are you looking so excited about?”

“Alex just had another ability kick in. Apparently, when he made love with Shani last night, we all shared a huge orgasm between the four of us, and—”

“The four of you?” Chalise asked.

“Gail was there just in case Alex had the stamina to go an extra round,” Cate explained. “Anyway, Shani had a whole string of orgasms and then when Alex came, all four of us shared their orgasm. What’s more, everyone else shared it as well, including Patricia in New Orleans.”

“Patricia, she’s the singer who’s been organizing and training the Watchers?” Kitty asked.

“Yeah, that’s her. She contacted Alex, since he managed to wake her out of a deep sleep with their orgasms. But when she did, Shani could hear them even though Patricia wasn’t trying to talk to her. It turns out that Alex managed to give her, meaning Shani, the ability to communicate telepathically on her own. So now she doesn’t need to rely on Alex to communicate with any of her fellow Seers.”

“Wow,” both girls said at the same time.

“That also means, supposedly, that if Alex were to be injured again like he was last weekend, the other girls would still be able to communicate together.”

“And all we got were a string of wonderful orgasms,” Kitty teased. “Damn, can we do it over again and see if we can get any extra surprise bonuses this time?”

“So, Alex gets a boost in his abilities every time something major happens to him?” Chalise asked.

“Yeah, the first time was when he got into a fight with Anh’s son, Bao. That was the first time he could clearly communicate telepathically. Before that it was just vague feelings and images. Then when he had that fight with your brother, he discovered that he could communicate with more than one person at a time, kind of a mass telepathy call. This is the newest advance, and it occurred independently of an adrenaline-inspired change,” Cate informed them.

“Was there any change when he made love with us?” Chalise asked. I panicked a bit, thinking she was fishing for something she was going to be disappointed to find wasn’t there, but Cate answered her.

“Yeah, when you made love, Alex discovered he could send emotions and physical sensations instead of just messages and images. Although, to be fair, I think they said they could feel his fear and concern during his fight with Brandon, but this time they actually felt a rush of physical pleasure when you all came.” Both Kitty and Chalise seemed to be especially happy with this latest fact, making me think it wasn’t just scientific curiosity that was driving them in this regard.

“Should we mention this to Ryan?” Kitty asked.

“No!” I insisted, speaking up for the first time. “I’m trying to keep from telling Ryan very much, mostly to protect him when what I’ve been doing at the hospital finally comes to light, because I’m sure it eventually will. He really need some ‘plausible deniability’ when people start asking him about what I can accomplish.”

“So you don’t plan on telling or asking him anything?” she asked, seeking clarification.

“Exactly,” I said.

“I was going to bring it up with Becky, but things were so busy at the house this morning I really didn’t get a chance to,” Cate explained.

“You’ll have to tell her as soon as you get a chance, as I’m sure she’ll have some interesting insights into it and possibly some clever things to try out as well,” Chalise suggested.

“No doubt,” Cate agreed. “Although, both Brooke and Allison were talking with us last night, so I have no doubt she’s telling her all about it during their drive.”

This newest bit of information was enough to keep the three women chattering on for the rest of the drive. While they talked I checked in with Brooke, and yes, they were discussing the same topic with Becky. I figured it would be good to let them all get it out of their systems before we reached the hospital, so I planned on staying out of it for now, but I was a bit afraid they’d still be too excited when we met with Ryan and Edward.

I knew I wasn’t finished for the day, even after the long day I’d had. Since Kitty and Chalise had cleared the rest for takeoff, they’d all be sure to be climbing into the cockpit, as it were. I knew that Cate was still discussing the events of the day on the phone with Kitty and Chalise, as she often did, so I was waiting before going to bed until she was available. I figured I’d have to dedicate tonight to either her or Shani, although I was pretty sure I’d be spending it with Cate. As such, I was rooting around in the kitchen again, looking for yet another late night snack.

“Alex, where the hell are you?” I heard Cate yell from upstairs. “Come on up, we’ve got a few things to discuss.”

Uh-oh, I thought. That doesn’t sound very good. I grabbed a couple extra cookies and hurried upstairs expecting the worst, although I didn’t know what I could possibly have done wrong this time.

I finally walked into the room to find it filled with a few people. Cate was sitting impatiently on the bed, with Shani lying down behind her observing Cate and I. Allison was looking on anxiously nearby, while Anh was doing something in the corner looking very nonchalant. Gail walked up behind me, I guess to see what the fuss was about. It’s hard to be subtle about anything with this many women around.

“Yeah, what’d I do now?” I asked.

“You are one naïve rube,” Cate announced flatly. “Do you have any idea what your silly, high-and-mighty ‘I’m not going to ask anyone any questions about their private lives’ has done?”

The other women all glanced at Cate’s reaction. Anh cleared her throat meaningfully and Cate glanced guiltily at her.

“Hey, I thought you were supposed to be supporting my decisions here?” I asked, feeling like I could defend myself. “Besides, don’t go calling me names before you even tell me what it is that I’m supposed to have done.”

Cate sighed, trying to compose herself. “You’re right, as usual. It seems you once again did the right thing, though without realizing it. I was talking about things with your two girlfriends when Kitty let something slip. I was surprised by it, so I started pushing. Finally Chalise admitted the same thing. It seems you’ve been making such a big thing about not revealing what Kitty did with Darrell on their dates, that they both felt you weren’t interested in knowing that it was both of their first times. You took their virginities along with your own yesterday,” she informed me.

I looked around in confusion. “What? Surely that can’t be correct. They didn’t—”

“Alex,” Cate said, again sighing dramatically, “most women nowadays don’t bear the traditional hymen that used to mark virgins. At least not physically active women. Actually, I’m not sure they were that common in the old days either, aside from the privileged daughters of the wealthy. Both Chalise and Kitty were virgins, just like I am. But they didn’t think it was appropriate to share that important fact with you because you made such a big deal out of treating everyone so ‘fairly’.”

“Wow,” I said as I sat down, considering what this might mean.

Seeing my expression, Anh turned to Cate. “Did complain about their treatment?” she asked simply.

“Well, no. In fact they said it was everything they could ever have dreamed of. You apparently did a wonderful job, Alex.”

“Then what issue?” Anh asked.

“That was my point when I said he always manages to do the right thing, even if he’s not aware of it. By being so gallant about ignoring their apparent expansive history with a string of past lovers, he treated them just the way he should have. Probably better because he didn’t draw any unnecessary attention to them.”

“That issue done then,” Anh announced with a note of finality. “What next?”

Cate looked up at her, a bit taken aback, and she sat silently while she tried to reorient her thoughts.

“So why am I surrounded by other virgins,” I asked, still not quite able to put this behind me. “I’d thought everyone was busy having sex nowadays.”

“Apparently it’s not so widespread, but I think you are just attracted to unique individuals,” Cate said, explaining her own theory on the subject. “They both have their own perspectives, and weren’t very impressed with the typical guys they’d been dating. Kitty thought no one ever appreciated her since they always seemed to look right past her, so I can see why she’d pick up on your whole ‘don’t react to me based on what others say about me’. Chalise has a history of trying to fend off guys that think she’ll fall on her knees if they act like jerks. Neither one was anxious to give themselves to anyone they weren’t attracted to.” That made sense to me, and fit in with what I knew about both girls.

“And you?” I asked, smiling at her with what I can only assume was a self-satisfied smirk.

“I think I told you before, I’ve always wanted to find someone just like you. I figured it might take some time, but I assumed it was only a matter of time. However, seeing everything we did in New Orleans I slowly came to realize that there wasn’t anyone else like you, that you are one in about seven billion. That settled it for me.”

I simply nodded in agreement. I could certainly understand that view.

“So, any ideas on who’s next?” I asked playfully, trying to finish this somewhat awkward conversation. I was looking meaningfully at her, clearly indicating who I wanted to be next.

“Hey, don’t look at me,” she protested, gesturing at her waist, which confused me. I looked up at her face to try to parse her meaning. She sighed tiredly.

“I mean I’ve got my period, you’re about a day late,” she said. “As much as I’m anxious to finally have a go at you myself, I hardly want my first time to be a virtual bloodbath,” she answered, smiling weakly. “Besides, as much as I’d appreciate being next, I think it’s more important for you to try it with one of your women.”

Once again, I looked at her in confusion, although this time I was joined by the others in the room.

“You always manage to trigger some new ability every time you have a stressful event in your life,” Cate explained. “I’m thinking that significant events might have a similar effect. The fact that you suddenly started transmitting physical sensations telepathically the other night just confirms that theory. I think you should make love to Shani since she’s ready and anxious, as well as ready to conceive. When you do, I wouldn’t mind being here to watch just so I can observe any effects it might have. In fact, maybe you should pick one other as well, just in case you have the stamina to do more than just one.”

I glanced at Shani, raising a single shaggy eyebrow. Caroline had never managed to arrange my promised eyebrow treatment yet.

“I entered my most fertile period two days ago,” Shani informed me, “so I should still be ready to conceive.”

“I understand you’d like this to be personal,” Cate said, “but I suspect you’ll find that trying to get pregnant isn’t so much about the moment as it’s about trying it over and over, whatever the circumstances.”

I simply nodded sagely, taking this all in. “What do you think, Shani? Would you rather this be private between us?”

“Alex, quite frankly I’d love to spend as much time with you as I can. Privately would be ideal, but I also value my sisters here almost as much as I treasure my time with you. Plus Cate brings up a good point. I think having several people here for this makes sense, especially since that’s how we’ve been handling it since we first got here. Besides, doing it that way will take the pressure off of everyone else afterwards.”

So we reached a conclusion. Since we’d been sleeping two women plus Cate every night for the past couple of weeks, we kept to that. We decided on Shani and Gail joining me tonight, since Gail would have to return home the next day, and wouldn’t be available for the rest of the week. Anh laughed as she headed out the door, saying it was just as well, as her old lady parts weren’t quite active enough for the thorough ‘loving’ she was sure was going to follow. We all laughed as I stripped off my clothes, since Anh’s ‘old lady parts’ have been working fine so far. Gail once more folded my clothes for me as I took them off.

We all settled down, lying on top of the covers since it was warmer tonight than it had been. Gail was behind me while Shani snuggled into my arms. Cate lay on the outside. I glanced at Cate to see if she was nervous about Gail’s presence. However she didn’t seem to be perturbed by it, so I didn’t worry about it too much. If she reacted I’d deal with it when it occurred.

I started kissing Shani, just taking my time and not trying to move too fast. I nuzzled her neck and kissed her nose and eyes.

“You know,” she said, “don’t feel pressured. You aren’t likely to do anything tonight, so you shouldn’t think about—”

“Shani,” I said, kissing her to keep her quiet, “when I’m with you, you’re all I think about. You should know how I operate by now. I like to focus on what’s important. Babies aren’t important right now. Without the love that we feel for each other there won’t be any babies. I’m solely focusing on you right now. Now shut up and kiss me back.”

She did, and I kissed her simply to keep her from feeling the need to reassure me of anything. We just made out, as I rubbed her arms and her sides, keeping everything light. After a bit I leaned down and nibbled on her nipples which produced a quick shiver in her, causing her skin to prickle. I grinned up at her, watching as I played with her nipple with my tongue. She couldn’t really see me as I did this, but she recognized what I was doing and that I was watching her, taking delight in her reactions. As she was reacting pretty well, I figured I’d better move on. I started to shuffle downwards but she reached out and stopped me.

“You don’t need to go down on me tonight,” she whispered. “Hearing you with Kitty and Chalise has had us all excited for the last day and a half. I’m already about to explode and I’m drenched I’m so excited. Just go ahead and do it, I’m ready and I’ve been waiting for this for ages.”

I grinned at her and resumed my position over her. “Do you want to be on top or—?”

“No, I want you on top. It just feels more natural with you in the position of power. We can play with different positions later, but for now just love me like men and women have for ages.”

I kissed her again and then leaned back. Despite having had sex repeatedly since Friday afternoon, I was already erect. I moved back to give myself room, and instantly two hands readied me for entry. Cate backed off since Gail had beaten her there, taking my erection and moving it into position. She swiped the head along Shani’s slit, getting it lubricated as well as teasing us both. She ended up running it against Shani’s clit before returning it to the point of entry. When she stopped moving it around I simply glanced at Shani, mouthed the words ‘I love you’ and pressed inward. She couldn’t see it, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.

I felt myself slip easily into her, as her flesh both yielded and grasped me tightly. She was right. She was certainly well lubricated, and with little effort I slowly eased myself further and further into her, moving slowly but steadily on, feeling her pussy gripping me and welcoming me in. Part way in she raised her hips, trying to hurry my movements, but I continued to slide steadily in until I finally bottomed out. Finally, I lay fully on her and kissed her, just a simple kiss, no tongue at all, but letting her know that this was an act of love between us.

After a moment I eased back, retreating from her. I could feel her tender flesh resisting, seeming to hang onto me as if to entice me back. There was no worry there, I wasn’t about to go anywhere else for some time.

I started a slow back and forth motion, pausing both at her entrance and at the point of maximum penetration. When I was fully in, I would wiggle my hips and grind my pubic bone against her, another detail I picked up from my reading, but it was hard to tell what effect it had. At least it distracted me slightly, helping my concentration. I noticed several hands: Shani’s, holding an arm and running across my chest, Gail’s running over my ass, and Cate’s along my torso and playing with my hair. I could feel the love we all shared being expressed in me.

Shani gave a little shiver when I bottomed out again, and as I drew out I pulled back slightly, and quickly two hands moved in between us, both zeroing in on her nipples, gently tweaking them.

“You know,” Shani gasped, “there’s so much more full body contact here compared to what we’ve done in the past. I can feel your essence coursing through you and flowing into me. I can feel your heartbeat in your cock as it fills me, and my skin is alive with the sensations of your essence. My skin feels like it’s rippling with your energy.”

“I can feel it too,” Gail told us. “I can feel your love focused on her. It’s like a living thing, flowing out of you and bathing her skin. It makes my hand tingle as I hold you.”

“I’m well aware that I don’t share any of Shani and Gail’s abilities,” Cate said, “but it’s like I can feel it too. Except for me it’s like the comfort I always feel when you hold me, except now it feels like it’s encompassing Shani as well. It’s hard to feel jealous when I see your love enveloping all of us. I’m glad I didn’t go first, as it’s a humbling thing to know you care so much for everyone you’re with, and that soon I’ll feel that within myself.”

I wondered about that and considered whether my sister was really feeling my energy or if she simply wanted to. Like she wanted so much to be a part of what we were sharing that her mind was letting her feel a part of it. I didn’t doubt that she was sincere, but I just couldn’t picture how she could feel my energy moving between other people. However, I wasn’t about to let myself be distracted from what I was doing.

With that I leaned in and lay fully on Shani again, letting her soak up this supposed energy I was giving off. I kissed her lips, again keeping it simple. I didn’t want any excess tongue motion to distract her. Instead I wanted the steady skin contact to let her know that I was here with her in this moment, and that I was completely here for her.

In the meantime I sped up my thrusting motions. I wasn’t exactly thrusting, the motions were still steady and regular, but I was using a more natural rhythm now. Gail and Cate molded themselves against us, pressing their flesh against our flesh, trying, I suppose, to feel what we were feeling through me. Shani shivered, gasped, and then her whole body began to shake, producing wonderful sensations around my cock as her pussy began to vibrate around me. I drove into her and held steady, allowing her flesh to do what it needed without me trying to fight it. Her orgasm passed after a few moments, though she retained a slight glassy look, furthered by her inability to look directly at me despite our being literally nose to nose. The only way she could avoid my glare was to squint her eyes and let them glass over.

I began stroking into her again, and she responded right away, setting up a counter tempo against me while she clutched me more fully against her. I could feel Cate and Gail’s breath against my flesh, their flesh touching mine, their nipples boring into my back and sides, and their palms gliding along our skin.

Shani shivered again and her pussy began to dance against my flesh once more. I had to hold steady, not simply to allow her to orgasm around me, but also to allow me to concentrate on not cumming too soon. As she finished her orgasm I began to move at a quicker pace, still pressing fully into her but doing it faster, driving into her and holding myself against her when I was fully inside.

I noticed that Cate and Gail’s breaths were beginning to quicken and their hands began stroking us more hurriedly. Shani rolled her head back, relieving her of having to keep looking at me. I couldn’t tell, but I think her eyes might have rolled back inside her head. I kept driving into her and she started shaking again, only this time she started thrashing, almost like she was having an epileptic fit. This was simply too much for me, and I started slamming into her with quick short strokes, wanting to finish quickly because I couldn’t tell how much longer Shani was going to be here with us.

As her pussy quivered around me, drawing me further into her, her juices easing my rapid motion in and out, I felt my balls begin to draw up. At that moment I shoved into her hard, clutching her to me and called out her name just as I felt myself let loose. I could feel semen drive along my shaft, squirting out and filling her. Just as it left my body at the apex of my thrust, suddenly a flash went off before my eyes. It was like I was seeing stars exploding, but I knew they weren’t stars because stars are nowhere near that magnificent.

I kept thrusting, but the motions were automatic and I was too focused on the sensations overwhelming me to concentrate on what my hips were doing. All I was aware of was the bolts of energy shooting along the length of my cock, exploding out of me and traveling through both of us only to flash in front of my eyes.

It seemed to go on forever, and I was intimately aware of each excruciatingly slow pulse as I pumped into her body, but it also seemed to be over in an instant. Suddenly the flashes in front of my eyes were too much and there was a large flare in my brain. I could feel each of my girls connected to me and flowing through me. I seemed to disconnect from reality for a moment, and then I sort of lost my awareness for a few seconds.

When I could finally focus on things around me again, I was aware that we were all lying in a mass, all cuddled together in a damp heap, each of us trembling.

“Shit, did you feel that, Cate?” Gail asked.

“Hell, yeah,” my sister gasped. “That was no damn orgasm.”

“Tell me about it,” Shani weakly said. “My whole body is still shuddering and my brain is tingling. Hell, if that’s what sex with you is like, then I’m never getting out of this bed again.”

“Pardon me if I don’t go next,” Gail gasped, “but I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet. I’ll need to rest up for that.”

“Hell, I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready for that again,” I told them.

I suddenly felt a tiny giggle in my head as I heard a tinkling little voice.

Wow, I felt that one all the way down here. I’m not sure quite what you did, but I just had an unprovoked mini-orgasm. So you finally had intercourse with one of your chosen?

Yeah, Patricia, I just made love with Shani,’ I told her. ‘She was the first of what looks like a long line waiting for me. Everyone’s been waiting for a while.’ Shani sat up, watching me as I spoke telepathically with Patricia.

Well, if what I felt was an indication of what we all have waiting for us, then I think I’ll take the next train up and see you in the morning,’ she teased. At least, I thought she was teasing.

Did you feel it when I made love with Kitty and Chalise?’ I asked her. ‘How did the two of them compare? How was it different?

Yeah, I felt it when you made love to them. In fact, I even noted the time in case you wanted to check with me. But that was just a gentle tickling, like a very nice feeling washing over me. This was a full-fledged orgasm I had just lying here. I woke up to some odd sensations, then I felt a couple of small tremors, and then I felt a big cum.’

I think the first sensations were when Shani came a couple of times,’ I told her. ‘The bigger one must have been when I came.’

“Did you share that?” Shani asked me.

“Share what?” Gail asked. Cate sat up and looked at me, wondering what had just transpired.

Pardon me a moment, Patricia. We seem to have something happening here,’ I told her.

Patricia, I heard you talking to Alex before he had a chance to share it with us. Did you try to contact us?’ Shani asked. ‘Wait a second,’ she said, and then I didn’t hear anything for a second.

“Damn, I can talk to her without you,” Shani informed us.

“Holy fuck,” Gail stated in amazement.

“But I didn’t do anything, and I didn’t feel you conversing in the back of my head like I usually do,” I argued.

“It doesn’t matter, Alex. Apparently that massive orgasm we had affected me. I don’t think I need you to communicate with the other women anymore,” Shani excitedly informed me. “Here, let me try Brooke.”

“Yep, Brooke says she felt it as well. I explained what I was experiencing. Did you hear us conversing?” Shani asked.

“No, I didn’t,” I said, sitting up and considering this new information.

“Come on, guys. I need information here. What’s going on?” Cate asked. “Damn, I knew something was going to occur tonight. So Shani is using telepathy on her own without going through you?”

“Yeah, Patricia said she shared our orgasm even with the hundreds of miles between us,” Shani explained. “What’s more, when she contacted Alex I could hear her even though she was speaking to him. When I tried, I could contact her independently of Alex. Alex says he couldn’t even hear us talking.”

“Man, you’ve got to do me next,” Gail said, contradicting her previous announcement in her growing excitement about the possibilities.

“Quick, tell me all about it. I want all the details,” Cate informed us. I could clearly see that sleep was out for the immediate future, despite the fact that I was feeling exhausted from a full day and several orgasms. There was clearly a lot to discuss before Cate or the other girls would let me sleep tonight.


 

Sunday was a surprise. When I woke up and roused myself, ready to head downstairs, everyone told me to just take a quick shower and get ready on my own, as they all had to get dressed. I thought that was odd, as we’d all done our morning preparations together before, but they were insistent. When I reached the dining room everything was sheer efficiency, with Mom and Anh shoving food and orange juice at me as fast as I could manage. Everyone else seemed to be nibbling at the sides.

What was surprising was the appearance of a delivery truck during breakfast. I didn’t even know they made deliveries on Sundays. More surprising was when we all went outside and my Mom threw her arms around my neck and said “Surprise”, and gave me a big hug and a kiss. Seems they’d ordered me an over-sized bed for all the ladies sleeping with me. Unfortunately, we’d grown up with two girls’ rooms for my three sisters, with me having the smallest bedroom. That officially ended today. Part of getting a new bed involved switching all of my possessions, as I’d now need a larger room to accompany the larger bed.

However, the larger room I would be switching for wouldn’t be Becky and Melinda’s bedroom that my girls used, or even Cate’s bedroom. No, my parents insisted on moving out of their master bedroom to give me room to be with all of my girls. They insisted they’d be fine taking Cate’s room, which was larger than mine. The girls’ room would still serve as an overflow for my girls, and my old room would largely remain idle, as it didn’t appear she intended to use it for anything other than a walk in closet. I guess my two eldest sisters had just been demoted to the couches downstairs.

“What about Cate?” I stupidly asked.

“Like you need to ask,” Mom replied, lightly punching my shoulder. “You couldn’t get her out of your room with a pitchfork.”

“You’d better believe it,” Cate echoed, confirming the sentiment. “I plan on sticking around for some time to come.”

However, the changeover entailed a lot of movement. “We just felt terrible watching all of you crowded on that teeny tiny bed; having everyone lying on top of you because they didn’t have room to lie down. If one of you rolled over slightly they’d fall out of bed. You managed to rotate to try to manage it, but even that got more difficult as there were more and more of you. Now with Gail, Rebecca and Brooke it’s way too much,” she informed me.

“But—” I began, trying to organize an argument against something I knew we all needed.

“No buts,” my mother argued, putting her hand up to stifle any further objections. “And hopefully no more butts falling out of bed,” she laughed. “We’d ask you to help, but you have too much scheduled today. All of us are going to move everything between the rooms. The workmen will haul the various beds around, tossing your old one and moving ours into Cate’s old room. Becky should arrive soon. Chalise, Kitty and Becky will accompany you, while Caroline helps us. Your sister Cate is going to be busy as the ‘animal guy’ is coming over soon to help us begin organizing and building cages for them all. Your father is going to help build them. I spoke with Caroline and she even arranged for Darrell to come help us build an animal shed inside the garage. There’s going to be no more cars in the garage for quite some time.”

“Hurry up and get dressed, everyone will be here soon. Everyone has things to do and you have to get moving to make it to the hospital on time. Becky tells me that Ryan fellow has a lot planned for today, and I have a feeling it’s going to take a long time to get you going, since everyone is going to want to talk to you before you go.” I hurried off at Mom’s insistence, getting no help as everyone started moving in different directions trying to get organized.

As I hurried to get dressed, people were moving things all around me. I was forbidden to help organize any of my own stuff.

“No worry, Cate tell us where you hide you porn stash,” Anh told me, smiling at my bewildered expression. “We pack it up, but me no think it been used since New Orleans.”

The new bed consisted of a frame holding two regular King-size mattresses, so there was plenty of room for everyone, assuming I didn’t add anyone else of course. However I wouldn’t have time to stay and watch it’s construction, as I was quickly hustled out of the house.

Soon people started arriving. First Rebecca, Brooke and her kids arrived, although they were soon pressed into service and didn’t have a chance to swarm me. Then Becky arrived with everyone from her place. Finally Kitty arrived, accompanied by her mother Martha and a very confused looking older man that I assumed was Kitty’s father. She apologized for being late, observing everything that was taking place.

“This is my father, Fredrick Washerstein,” Kitty informed me. “Dad, this is Chalise and my shared boyfriend, Alex Jennings.” He gave me an odd look before reluctantly shaking my hand.

“I was informed late last night that I was not only meeting my daughter’s new boyfriend, whom I’d never heard of before, but that I was helping to reorganize your house. Something about making room for several women?” he asked pointedly. But he was quickly prevented from pressing me for answers by Martha, who hushed him up before giving me a big hug of her own.

“Fred, heavens, we already told you everything that you need to know. You’ll get all the details eventually, but there’s way too much to get done this morning to waste time glowering at Alex. There’s some construction in the garage that needs to be done.”

“But what’s Alex going to be doing? Isn’t he even helping?” Fredrick asked.

“Heavens, no,” his wife told him. “He’s got to get to the hospital to have a quick brain scan done.” When her husband looked at her in confusion she continued, “They want to see what makes him so oddly attractive, why he’s always so charming and debonair, and why everyone seems to trust him so much.”

“I’m not so sure I…,” Fredrick started to complain before he was pushed straightaway into the garage.

Darrell walked up and shook my hand before pulling me into a big bear hug.

“Hey there, Alex, glad I’ve got a chance to help you out for a change. Thanks a lot for helping Chalise and my mom out of a difficult situation, and also for everything that you’ve done for me.”

“No hard feelings over Kitty?” I asked, just to make sure there were no harbored resentments.

“No, I realized pretty quickly that I couldn’t compete with you where she was concerned. But now that we’ve worked that out we’ve become fairly good friends. She’s been talking with me about how to bone up on my studies before school starts in the fall, so that I can actually achieve something when I go to college.”

“Well, I’m glad it is all working out. I had a feeling you’d turn out to be a really good guy,” I told him, as Caroline gave me a big hug of her own. She was about to say something when she was interrupted by her daughter. Kitty and Chalise quickly dragged Gail over to confront me.

“Instruction time,” they informed me. When I looked questioningly at them they said “Lying lessons, remember?” Kitty’s mother was nearby and overheard them.

“You want to teach your boyfriend to lie to you?” she asked unbelievingly.

“If it means he’ll be able to lie convincingly to us, then yes,” her daughter argued with her. “It’ll mean that he’s better able to lie when it’s important. And that means he’ll be better able to protect us and those around him.”

Martha didn’t seem convinced. “He’s going to protect you by lying to you?”

“Mom, what’s he going to lie to us about? Girls following him around? Sleeping with other women? All he has to do is talk to us and we’ll probably agree with it. Besides, he’s going to be much too busy sleeping with his mysterious older women to ever have time to fool around with any roving trollop. No, we want him to be able to avoid difficult situations that occur when respectable women throw themselves at him in public. He’s continually finding himself in embarrassing predicaments through no fault of his own. He’s currently a terrible liar, simply telling people the truth and daring them not to believe it. He needs to learn better techniques if he’s going to protect a continually growing list of dependent adults,” she explained, as if that’d make perfect sense to a mother. Martha just rolled her eyes but avoided further discussion, and she watched the lessons unfold from the background.

“OK, Alex,” Gail began, “the secret is to project confidence when you lie. You have to feel the lie. Really believe the lie.” She turned to her friend. “Kitty, tell him a lie just to illustrate the point.”

“OK,” Kitty said, turning to face me square on. “Alex, I’ve never ever had sex,” she stated, holding back a smirk only mere seconds before she finally broke out laughing hysterically. “OK, OK, give me a second. I’ll get this right,” she gasped, trying to regain her breath. She looked in my eyes once again.

“I’ve never had sex with Darrell,” she stated, looking me right in the eyes.

“Very good,” Gail immediately congratulated her. “See how convincing she was. How you could see the conviction in her eyes? Always establish good eye contact when you lie. OK, now you try lying to her, Alex.”

I thought this was a good case of the pot calling the kettle black. Cate had told me last night that she hadn’t had sex with Darrell. But then maybe I was being too literal. After all, I’d been having lots of sex with everyone until Friday, we just hadn’t had intercourse yet. But none of this mattered. I needed to concentrate on my lying if I was going to convincingly lie to my girlfriends. They were expecting me to get this!

“Alright,” I said, taking a deep breath and settling myself in front of her. “Kitty, I’ll remain pure and chaste until the day I marry.” I tried hard but I just couldn’t maintain a straight face and soon broke out laughing.

“No, that’s not it, Alex,” Gail stressed. “Remember that you’ll be lying not to the individual, but in order to protect your women. You’ll be trying to keep them out of trouble, to keep them out of harm’s way. Now try again.” Once again I took a deep breath and looked deep into Kitty’s eyes.

That certainly put the whole thing into a different perspective for me, so I stopped joking and began to take this seriously. I couldn’t afford to continue to do this off the cuff, with only a wing and a prayer.

“Kitty, I will NEVER have sex before I’m officially wed,” I stated unequivocally. All the women applauded me, excluding Martha of course. We’d managed to attract more women watching the lessons as we went on. They all seemed to pick up on what was going on quickly enough.

“Very good,” Gail enthused. “Now convince Martha.”

I turned and walked over to Kitty’s mom, who suddenly looked a bit panicky. I gently but firmly took hold of both her arms, looked her in the eyes and said, “Martha, I promise I won’t subject your daughter to any harm, and will keep her from compromising any of the ideals you both hold so dear,” I stated clearly.

Again everyone cheered and whistled. I heard a shout of “Way to lie, dude!” from Melinda, while Anh announced, “Lie to me, baby, Lie to me.”

Martha looked shocked for a few moments, then finally smiled and looked at me, again in the eyes.

“It’s strange, but when you say that, I honestly feel better. I seem to believe it in my soul, even though I know you’re lying your socks off.”

“Part of a good lie involves including some truth to it,” Gail explained. “Either a partial truth, or simply an honest emotion of what you’re trying to protect by lying. That’s why husbands lie so well to wives they cheat on. They think they’re being kind to their wives by not revealing the truth.

“Now, it’s also very important to keep the lie as simple as possible. Think KISS; Keep It Simple Stupid. Nothing trips up a lie like the complications of trying to remember the various details of multiple lies. In your case it’s going to be complicated by the fact that much of what you’ll want to lie about will be blatantly true, and is likely to be repeated when it occurs again with the next woman throwing herself at your feet.”

“Hey, what’s this about more women? Doesn’t he already have enough?” Martha protested, but everyone present simply ignored her.

“You’ve got to keep the possible confusion of details to a minimum,” Gail said. “Try to tell partial truths or keep the lies all along a similar trail, or along a track you can easily remember. Worst case scenario, let us all know what you’re lying about so we can help you remember your lies for you.”

“How could he—” Martha began to ask before her objection was quickly trampled over.

“Try explaining to Caroline why a decorated police officer would suddenly throw herself at your feet.” I walked over to Chalise’s mother and again held her with one hand and stared deeply into her eyes.

“Caroline, it was all a misunderstanding. We have a history of teasing each other. She’s actually a friend of my aunt’s who’s been teasing me with silly exaggerations for years.”

“Very good,” Gail said. “You built a believable premise, one you could reinforce with the officer in question,” she stated, without sounding awkward talking about herself in the third person, “and it didn’t entail an excess of detail that’d trip you up in the future, just a vague, non-specific reference to a tenuous personal connection.” Caroline turned to the girls standing around and announced, “I think he’s finished. He’s lying with the best of them now.”

“One last one,” Gail continued, “Try explaining to her how it is that you sometimes translate for Anh before she finishes speaking?” Caroline’s eyes got bigger, and I wondered whether anyone else was near enough to also hear these questions, but I kept my eyes fixed on hers.

“We’ve simply gotten to know one another fairly well since she’s been here helping my family,” I explained. “I can figure out a lot of what she’s going to say just because we share the same kind of humor and thoughts.” Everyone cheered, and my girlfriends and women all came up and kissed me.

“My hero,” Chalise crooned, “he lies just like the best cheating spouse or crooked politician. You lie like a catholic priest at a Save-the-Children rally!” I just had to blush at that one. I may have graduated a level in lying, but I couldn’t avoid being embarrassed. I guess that’d probably be the next lesson.

“All right, it’s good you’ve taught my son to lie so well I’ll never be able to believe him when he says a girlfriend ate his homework, but we’ve got work to do,” my father insisted, dispersing the assembled crowd.

“Hey, I’ve learned from the best,” Kitty defended me. “If Alex is willing to protect us all by lying to us and everyone else, then the least I can do is eat his homework.” We all laughed about it as my father headed off grumbling before Fredrick figured out what was going on.

“Now, Alex, we’ll have to go over how to cheat at a lie detector as well. I can see how that would help you, as I’m sure you are going to be facing either the police or a hungry press sooner or later, but that’s for another time.” I told her that I’d try to be ready when the time came. As we broke up, Melinda caught up with me.

“Alex, I wanted to finally discuss that research I’ve been doing. I really wanted to do a whole presentation for you, but it seems like everything is getting away from us. This whole ‘stay out of Cate’s way’ is really making things difficult.” Melinda’s mocking complaint had perhaps a bit too much authenticity.

“Frankly, there are no others with your particular abilities. There are lots of reports of telepathy, but nothing is similar to what you’ve experienced, so I’d doubt that any of it is legit. Now, I did find some interesting things about the visions though.” With that, Melinda pulled some pictures out of a small notebook.

I saw Cate advancing to listen to what our sister was telling me. I glanced at Becky as well, but she just waved me off, apparently she’d already heard this presentation before.

“If you look at these pictures,” Melinda continued, “there have been many cases of people trying to take pictures of people’s souls or their auras. One such branch is called Kirlian photography, although those are produced using electric charges or light exposure rather than being an honest attempt to capture a true image of someone’s aura. These are all examples of one variety of photographic proof or another. Would you get your girls to look at them and see if any of them have any bearing on what it is that they are seeing?”

I called Allison and Gail over since they were nearby, and had them examine Melinda’s pictures.

“Nope, sorry, but these all appear to be tricks of low-level lighting,” Allison said. “What we see is full of color and shows a great degree of detail in a whole range of new colors.”

“I thought so,” Melinda said, then turned to my mother, standing a ways away from her. “Can you see what’s behind Mom over there?”

“Uh, no, I don’t really see anything. I mean, actually I see a lot of things, but I can’t see anything specific that you might be referring to,” Allison explained.

“Oh, actually I had Mom hide a small grill. I was thinking maybe you were seeing simple things like infrared or thermal images in a different spectrum or in different colors, but it sounds like they are completely unrelated. Anyway, that’s about all that I could legitimately come up with. I’m sorry, Alex, but you really do seem to be out there by yourself, as no one else seems to have reported anything similar to what you’re doing or what your girls are seeing.”

“That’s OK, Melinda. You did a good job at this. Simply knowing that there isn’t anyone hiding out, ready to pop up at any moment tells us a lot,” I informed her. “Also, the information you turned up about our activities in New Orleans was a lot of help as well.” I stepped up to her and gave her a big hug to show my appreciation for what she’d done, glancing over at Cate as I did so to make sure she wouldn’t lose it over my actions.

Melinda’s face brightened considerably from my simple actions, reinforcing my idea that I needed to keep everyone busy doing unique tasks for me.

“Look, Melinda, see if you can get together with Becky and see about interviewing students around the campus to see if there might be any potential Watchers or Seers there. You should try to speak with Patricia about it, since she seems to have some actual research on the subject. But it may not be a good idea to call her though, since she’s been so publicly linked to me. Try going through one of the girls. That way you can have a full conversation without anyone being able to track it back to us. We managed to learn a fair amount by observing Gail before she was activated, so if we can duplicate that it would help.” I told her. She seemed to positively glow from her newly assigned task, and she immediately set off for somewhere or something, but I didn’t have the time to worry about it now.

Now that all my tasks were taken care of, Becky hurried us off for the long drive to the Carbondale hospital for our appointment with Ryan and Dr. Padilla. Gail gave me a quick kiss goodbye, “I’ll be gone by the time you get back. I’ll be sure to check out the local clinics,” she told me. “Though Cate and I checked them on the internet; seems they’re pretty limited, shipping most of their stuff off to Chicago to do all the real work.”

“That’s OK,” I argued, “We really don’t expect full services from them. I suspect for the numbers involved we’re going to have to be making deposits at a number of different locations. We can’t very likely expect hundreds of women to all line up at a single clinic to pick up a little reminder of me, now can we?” We both smiled as she bid us goodbye.

Allison and Brooke accompanied us to the hospital. I rode with Kitty, Chalise and Cate, while Allison and Brooke took Allison’s car; Brooke’s looking like it housed two messy kids in it for much too long.

Once we got underway both Kitty and Chalise had the same question.

“So, did you do it with anyone last night?”

Cate just smiled at them like the Cheshire Cat, causing them all to burst into giggles.

“Man, I knew it would be you,” Kitty said, congratulating Cate.

“Hey, it wasn’t me. I was there, but I had a little visitor last night that prevented my own involvement in the festivities.”

“Oh, that’s too bad,” Kitty said, then looked confused. “Then what are you looking so excited about?”

“Alex just had another ability kick in. Apparently, when he made love with Shani last night, we all shared a huge orgasm between the four of us, and—”

“The four of you?” Chalise asked.

“Gail was there just in case Alex had the stamina to go an extra round,” Cate explained. “Anyway, Shani had a whole string of orgasms and then when Alex came, all four of us shared their orgasm. What’s more, everyone else shared it as well, including Patricia in New Orleans.”

“Patricia, she’s the singer who’s been organizing and training the Watchers?” Kitty asked.

“Yeah, that’s her. She contacted Alex, since he managed to wake her out of a deep sleep with their orgasms. But when she did, Shani could hear them even though Patricia wasn’t trying to talk to her. It turns out that Alex managed to give her, meaning Shani, the ability to communicate telepathically on her own. So now she doesn’t need to rely on Alex to communicate with any of her fellow Seers.”

“Wow,” both girls said at the same time.

“That also means, supposedly, that if Alex were to be injured again like he was last weekend, the other girls would still be able to communicate together.”

“And all we got were a string of wonderful orgasms,” Kitty teased. “Damn, can we do it over again and see if we can get any extra surprise bonuses this time?”

“So, Alex gets a boost in his abilities every time something major happens to him?” Chalise asked.

“Yeah, the first time was when he got into a fight with Anh’s son, Bao. That was the first time he could clearly communicate telepathically. Before that it was just vague feelings and images. Then when he had that fight with your brother, he discovered that he could communicate with more than one person at a time, kind of a mass telepathy call. This is the newest advance, and it occurred independently of an adrenaline-inspired change,” Cate informed them.

“Was there any change when he made love with us?” Chalise asked. I panicked a bit, thinking she was fishing for something she was going to be disappointed to find wasn’t there, but Cate answered her.

“Yeah, when you made love, Alex discovered he could send emotions and physical sensations instead of just messages and images. Although, to be fair, I think they said they could feel his fear and concern during his fight with Brandon, but this time they actually felt a rush of physical pleasure when you all came.” Both Kitty and Chalise seemed to be especially happy with this latest fact, making me think it wasn’t just scientific curiosity that was driving them in this regard.

“Should we mention this to Ryan?” Kitty asked.

“No!” I insisted, speaking up for the first time. “I’m trying to keep from telling Ryan very much, mostly to protect him when what I’ve been doing at the hospital finally comes to light, because I’m sure it eventually will. He really need some ‘plausible deniability’ when people start asking him about what I can accomplish.”

“So you don’t plan on telling or asking him anything?” she asked, seeking clarification.

“Exactly,” I said.

“I was going to bring it up with Becky, but things were so busy at the house this morning I really didn’t get a chance to,” Cate explained.

“You’ll have to tell her as soon as you get a chance, as I’m sure she’ll have some interesting insights into it and possibly some clever things to try out as well,” Chalise suggested.

“No doubt,” Cate agreed. “Although, both Brooke and Allison were talking with us last night, so I have no doubt she’s telling her all about it during their drive.”

This newest bit of information was enough to keep the three women chattering on for the rest of the drive. While they talked I checked in with Brooke, and yes, they were discussing the same topic with Becky. I figured it would be good to let them all get it out of their systems before we reached the hospital, so I planned on staying out of it for now, but I was a bit afraid they’d still be too excited when we met with Ryan and Edward.

“House in Disarray” links finally working

Sigh! That’s what I get for not extensively testing my posts. Aside from several other errors, I was using a capital “I” in the links (“In” vs. “in”), so the links weren’t functioning correctly.

However, that’s corrected now. Now I’ve got to correct the WP pages, since they’ve <b>stopped</i> automatically posting the page title at the top of each page, meaning <b>all</b> of my old pages will no longer display correctly! Sigh!
