We were mezmerized enough that Leo shook us awake. “Hey! You okay?”
I mrrred “I’m sorry, it’s just…”
Steve added “…like last night.”
Leo sat down in a chair, and purred “Yeah, about that. Boy you two were hot, and I’m glad that I was able to improve on it.”
“Improve?” I joked. “More like went overboard, not that I don’t mind…”
I then remembered my job, my meager programming job I had taken. The project was behind and the boss told me to take off early, and not to come back until Monday. Now, with how I was… I cringed at the thought.
“Dude,” Steve said. “Is it that dead-end job?”
“When you’re writing the way to support the health care choices of over four thousand employees…” I started, before Leo put a hand on my shoulder.
“Don’t worry about it. You two were great together, so I did a bit of digging around. Your boss now thinks you’ve been working out your stress at the gym, but which gym he doesn’t know about. He’s getting curious, and given that I’m not from around here…”
“I can take care of that.” Steve interjected. “Come to my gym. It’s all male hunks and the instructors are good looking as well. They got a special going on, two for the price of one, so my renewal’s half price.”
I asked “Yeah, but what about your roomie, Steve?”
“Yeah, he won’t be bothering you anymore.” Leo said. “Usually I’m not this form, but he saw me like this and just started packing. Was rather light on things, almost like he was camping out.”
“Ugh,” Steve covered his heads. “I never got good roomies. At least this one paid for his room, but now how am I going to find someone to cover half the rent?”
“How much is rent?” I asked.
“$1600 a month, utilities included. Internet’s DSL though, not sure about things.”
“Dude, I’m paying $1000 for my place, and it’s a small place.”
“Too small,” Leo said. “I hope I didn’t break anything.”
“My place is huge,” Steve said. “Hell, I felt like it was the right size when I woke up this morning! You gotta see it. I bet you’ll come move in.”
“Hell,” I said, “if it’s just DSL, I betcha I’ll push it up to fiber and get things moving fast over there.”
“And I’m rather dumb with PC’s… can barely understand this Windows Internet Explorer pop up stuff.”
“Lets do this. First, lets go to your apartment and see how big it is. If it’s big enough, I’m dropping my apartment.”
Leo just smiled on all three heads, before taking a sip of his drinks.
It turns out Steve’s apartment was huge! Too huge! Three bedrooms, but one was never used… until I got in there. I moved in with Steve and shared the rent on the apartment. Talked to the landlord, who also wanted to put in a network in that last house, but I convinced him I could do it for cheaper than some contractor he wanted to use. They wanted to put in some cheap-ass cable that would cause problems and was on a well-known avoid list. So when I finished it up and gave him the full rundown of costs, including pizza for me and Steve, he gave us our rent back and asked us if we could rewire the rest of the apartments in exchange for rent. Not a sweet deal! Of course, some balked but turns out he was having trouble with them anyway, and this one group had to be arrested. Bunch of pot-heads growing weed…
Of course, my old landlord was too happy to let me go… but then I never liked him much anyway. I won’t get into the reasons, but those folk we displaced with the wiring up? I directed them to him, and they’re happy now. Even helped them move. I had time on my hands.
Speaking of time, work let up alot. Turns out some coworkers were screwing with my code. I had saved some backups onto a USB key, and when I came back that Monday I sat down, checked things out over two cups of coffee, and sure enough, someone changed it on the development box. Too bad that their activities were logged and I knew how to pull them. So after reverting it back over, I finished the whole thing, reviewed it, and by the end of the day the project was back on track and I sent over a review data file. I also dropped the boss and director a kind note with the logs detailing my progress… which resulted in much screaming by the two guys who were screwing me over at me. That followed by much screaming and running away when I stood up, leaned down, and mentioned how they were being tracked.
I’m also getting more buff and ripped than before! Yes, I’m gaining weight, but in a good way. Steve’s been moonlighting as a Phys-Ed teacher at high school and getting the kids going, both male and female. I can see the appeal of the ladies as they’re growing up, but there’s more appeal with Steve, especially when we’re going to the gym. Things have gotten alot better for us and we couldn’t of been happier.
Leo spent a bit of time teaching us some of the magic that he used on us, some lighter stuff plus a bit of the after effects. I hadn’t noticed but Leo’s hands were nearly doubled-up, the hands wide with double the thick fingers on them. He said that some intimacy multiplies items, but I think they also share; we’ve started getting more fingers and toes ourself. I wish he could of stuck around, but he’s a wandering lion… but after having him overnight, I saw that he gained two pairs of legs. Guess it was mutual.
