TRUE FIRST TIME TALES
A brief word from Scott and Eric
This is Scott and Eric. The real ones. This is Scott writing, as only one person can type at a time. LOL. So when you read "I" it's me, Scott. But both of us are sitting here as I type this. And, yes, our story is true. Both of them. Ray is going to edit and rewrite this so that it makes as much clear sense as possible. Neither of us are very good at writing, especially not at telling a story the way Ray can. So while these are our words, they have been edited so that they are more clear and precise than either of us could do them.
Firstly, we both want to thank Ray for all his hard work putting our vague and foggy memories into a clear and understandable form. He's a magician and should be widely famous and filthy rich. But that's the way things go. The truly talented are relegated to anonymity while the marginal and middling become famous.
We met our freshman year of high school, and lived in the same trailer court just outside Lansing, Michigan. I, Scott, had just moved there, while Eric had lived there his entire life.
At first, we were just friends, then became best friends by the end of that first year in high school.
And by the end of our sophomore year, we were in love.
We've done our best to tell our story as we remember it. It was the late eighties, and our memories aren't that great at just past fifty now. But we did our best to tell Ray what we could remember. And Ray did an outstanding job of filling in the details and translating our feelings and memories into an amazing story. Two amazing stories.
Eric was the first to find Ray's site, and the first to want to tell our story to Ray. He found Ray's Stories when he searched for 'first time gay love stories' one night when we were talking about how often guys met at our age, teens, or not. Eric was sure we were a rarity, while I was sure a lot of guys met another gay guy in their teens. After a couple pages that didn't have much to do with our question, he came across Ray's Stories and it's long list of True First Time Tales. And lo and behold, the vast majority of them were teens, or even younger. Whether it's just that guys in their teens were more likely to tell their story or not, Eric had to admit that it looked like most guys had their first gay encounter as teens.
After reading quite a few of those stories, and having a great time reading them together (you probably know exactly what I mean) Eric agreed that maybe guys hooking up as teens wasn't so rare after all.
Then Eric wanted to tell Ray our story. I said it was okay with me, so he contacted Ray, they got to work, and in less than a month, I was sitting with Eric at the computer, eyes wet with tears, reading a story that made me feel sixteen again. I truly did have tears to wipe away so I could keep reading. It brought back so many memories! Pure ones. Ones I'm so glad to have again. Well, they were always there, it's just that we tend to forget them over so many decades.
Then, after much pushing by Ray to do so, I let loose with the big bombshell - I told Scott I'd planned what happened all those years ago.
Eric never knew that. I'd never really thought to tell him back then. Not in the past few decades, for sure. It didn't seem to matter back when we were in school. So I'd never told him that I'd sort of planned on telling him I was gay, and had planned on seeing how much he'd put up with before I was forced to tell him. I really had no idea he was going to let me seduce him. I was sure he would reach a point in my touching and talking during the shower that he'd ask me if I was a fag. I planned on telling him that I was, that I really liked him, a lot, and that if he didn't hate me now, I wanted to stay friends.
Instead of him coming to a point where he pushed me away and asked if I was a fag, he let me go further than I had thought he would, and you read just how far it went.
So, Eric first learned that I had planned it out when he read my side of the story a few weeks ago. I was hugely nervous about it. I worried he'd be angry, or feel conflicted or used. Ray assured me that we had too many years together for that, and he was sure that Eric would likely be surprised but just fine with it.
After all, as Ray said, "It's over thirty years ago. If he hasn't figured it out by now, maybe you should tell him anyway."
He was surprised, to say the least. Not mad at all. Pleased, really. As he said when he'd finished the story, "So, you planned to seduce me to the point of my making you come out to me?"
I said, "Yes."
He grinned, kissed me, and said, "You're such a devious bastard, no wonder I love you."
So, to answer the most popular question sent in by readers of Eric's story - yes, we're still in love with each other and we're still together. We hooked up after that shower, and stayed together. After all, there weren't a lot of choices back in the late eighties. Being gay was not cool, especially not in high school. So we hid it well, even from our friends and family. Until we were both working and had moved out on our own, together. It wasn't unusual for two friends to get an apartment together back then. Not at all. But it was when those two friends had never dated in high school and then didn't date once they had a bachelor pad together. By the time we were in our early twenties, and still living together without dating, our parents began to figure us out.
Mine were first to ask. I told them I was. They asked if Eric was, and if he was my boyfriend. Mom was tearing up. I said we'd been together since the middle of high school. Dad wasn't happy, but he wasn't an asshole. It went okay.
Eric's folks weren't so cool about it, but they didn't fly off the handle. They were a bit more religious, and weren't pleased when we told them together. But they asked us over for holidays and such, and were as friendly as before. Mostly.
Our work friends figured us out before we came out after the millennium changed. Some never said anything, a couple mentioned it and asked us, a very few changed and became cold or distant. Oh well. It's better being known for what we are. No hiding and worrying. We don't tell anyone, but if we're asked, we tell the truth right up front.
Now for the second most asked question. No, we've never broken up. We've stayed at our parents' place a couple times during a fight about this or the other, but we've never moved out or lived apart. We never cheated on each other. If we met someone hot, who was interested, we told the other. Sometimes we had a threesome, sometimes they weren't into the other one and nothing came of it.
Third most asked question. Yes, we've been with others. Never without the other, though. We had a few swinging threesomes back in the nineties, even a foursome with a couple we were close with we met and became really great friends with first. Fellow gamers. And, yes, it was more than once. That went of for at least five years, as far as we can recall. We still talk to this day on Facebook and emails, though they now live across the country.
To answer some other questions -
- No, we're not interested in hooking up with readers. We're happy together.
- We're glad to share our story, and we hope it helps at least one person out in some way, most especially if it's a young person with doubts and worries and fears - if that's you, then know it can be cool, all right, and you're not alone. We know the feeling of being alone, of wondering if you always will be. Don't let it get you down. Finding someone happens all the time. It might not happen for you when it did for us, in your teens, but it can and likely will when you meet that right person. Hang in there! Keep your eyes open, and wait for it. Best thing you can do is something we didn't have back then - join a LGBTQ club and get out there and mingle and be known. It's hard to do, but once you do come out, you'll be happier. Even if your folks freak out, you'll have support and friends.
- We don't care if guys get off on the story. It's kind of a turn-on, to be honest, to both of us. Think about it. Someone reading your story, about you, and enjoying it to the point of... well, you know. Fine with us.
- Yes, we're considering telling more of our story. We've already been asked what happened next. We'll tell, in time. Leave a comment on the Feedback page and push us into it!
Now we have a question for you, dear readers - What do you want us to tell you next? And how do you want us to tell it? Do you want to just hear about the sex, or do you want to hear about the emotions and thoughts as well? A short story with just sex, or a longer story with all the inside emotional things we were feeling? Or do you even want another story? I mean, with over ten thousand reads, and so few comments or emails about it, seems you guys need to step up to the plate for a change. So how about it? Feedback page
We'd both like to say you guys do really need to step up to the plate. Come on, guys. Hell, I know how much it costs to keep up a website with all the SQL and databases and server functions, and frankly, you guys are being stingy beyond belief. There should be many times the number of Patreons and he should have hundreds of times the donations it gets! His Patreon doesn't even bring in enough to cover basic website hosting! That is not right!
(Don't edit this part Ray)
(I didn't) *blush
Stop being leeches and drop a dime on his Patreon. Five bucks too much for the great stuff you read here? No! If you're not able to give five bucks then leave a comment on the stories you like and why, so Ray knows what you like so he can give you more. Give back, you stingy bastards! LOL Spread the word! Get this site the interest and attention it deserves. Give Ray's stories and hard work the fame they deserve. If you like the stories, spread the URL!!!
Jesus, fucking Christ, have you read Circulatim? I mean, that's a huge series of stories, and every one brought tears to my eyes multiple times! Along with laughter and joy and heartache beyond 99% of anything either of us have ever read! Buy it! Get "The Circle" and see what real writing is! It's five bucks for a Kindle or PDF or Word or EPub. If you don't like it, you have no heart!
Eric and I are Patreons, and we will always be. We signed up before Eric told his story to Ray. Once we'd read so many wonderful stories, he got The Circle on a whim, and he cried and laughed and loved and lost and holy shit! He had me read it when he was done, and I'd never read anything like it before. You are missing out if you pass up reading what is in our opinion destined to one day become one of the greatest books about coming of age as gay ever written!
So there it is. You asked, we answered. And we beg you to let Ray know what you like so you can get more of it. And if you can afford it, donate to his Patreon. Keep this site alive and well. Spread the word.
Be good to each other.
Scott and Eric.
