9013 Chapter 13 of: “Twinergy and the Boys of Clear Lake!”

 

Well here we are, up in Fort Twinners late at night forcing down a can of Mexican beer. And that’s actually what it is, forcing. Neither Cody or myself can say we’re experienced drinkers, only having drank maybe half a dozen times, and always beer except once, a bottle of peach wine that tasted more like Kool Aid. Hard alcohol has never passed either of our lips, and just the smell is atrocious. Beer is hard enough for us to get down, especially the first one, but things usually go more smoothly after that.

So with forced swallows and painful burps, we almost had the first one choked down. It’s kinda an unspoken contest to see who can finish the first one faster, and it was anyone’s race at this point. Neither of us looked like we were enjoying the moment. But I do havta say that I did have a rather nice Teriyaki Salmon and potato salad burp just a minute ago that was quite enjoyable.

So what the hell, I couldn’t have more than a quarter can left, so I just sucked it up and tilted the can back and went for it…..gulp, Gulp, GULP! “YES!” Cody saw this and tried to follow suit not to be left behind and pull victory from the jaws of defeat, but he was too late. I was done and crunched the can and tossed it to his feet as I tilted my head back forward again with a big grin (almost laugh) as I sighed a victory sigh, and then, woops, whats this, Burpppp…..gush, as a discharge of foamy beer quickly shot its way from my nostrils and mouth and splashed down the front of my sweatshirt…….”Ahhh Fuck!”

Cody seeing this as I was gloating and just as he was finishing his last gulp or two, couldn’t hold back and began laughing hysterically as all the contents of his mouth sprayed all over the floor and front of his shirt. This changed my mood immediately and I began to laugh as well as we both pointed at each other and continued to laugh.

He threw his can at me which I avoided by moving to my left, and then lunged forward and tackled him knocking him off his beanbag as we both rolled around on the rug on the tree house floor. We continued to laugh and wrestle around as I could feel my face getting kinda warm and a happy loose feeling begin to overcome me.

I stuck my finger in his chin and wiped some of the beer around, and he burped and blew it in my face. We both started laughing and started to roll around again. This went on for a few minutes till we settled down on the floor lying beside one another and leaning our backs against one of the beanbags. Cody reached beside him and grabbed two more cans out of the bag and handed one to me.

“Can you feel anything yet Nika?”

“Yah, a little I think, can you?”

“Yah, I think so.”

“This stuff isn’t that bad…huh?”

“No, I kinda like it, it doesn’t taste that bad, it’s just the bubbles that are hard to swallow I think.”

“Yah, wouldn’t it be easier if it wasn’t carbonated?”

“I don’t know, everybody says they hate flat beer, so prolly not.”

“I like it up here….I mean late at night when it’s so quiet, and no one else is around. Its kool, huh?”

“Yah, it’s just kool being with you Nika.”

“You too Cody.”

We continued to drink our second can of beer, which was going down easily compared to the first. We were side by side with our arms touching and rubbing our inside feet together, completely at ease and at peace. I could feel the beer having an effect on me as I became much more loose and care free.

I turned to look at Cody and stare at his face. He noticed and did the same and looked at me. We stared into each others eyes and went back and forth from smiling and looking serious and back to smiling again. As we continued to watch one another, I felt Cody reach down and take my hand in his. It felt warm and as I looked down and saw our hands together, it made me smile and lean forward to kiss him on the cheek. His face was so soft with a fine dusting of downy fuzz where someday his whiskers will be. I could tell the beer was now having its effect on me as the second can was almost gone.

We were both feeling kinda lazy now and kept slouching down further and further onto the floor with just Cody’s head now against the beanbag as a pillow instead of his whole back like before.

I was now lying slanted against Cody with my back against his stomach and my head on his chest. His arms were wrapped around me and on my tummy and my arms over his with my hands holding his. He had his chin on the top of my head and would occasionally lean it forward and push his nose into my hair and breath in my smell. It was something he had been doing for years now and I never knew quite why, but enjoyed it all the same.

I threw my empty can against the wall, just a minute or two after he had, and he quickly handed me a third. I decided that since we were so close and at such peace with one another I’d ask him about the hair thing.

“Hey Cody.”

“Yah Nika.”

“For years you’ve been sniffing my hair, how come?”

“I don’t know. It’s so blond and fluffy and soft. Or I guess just cause I care about you and like the way you smell. It just makes me kinda warm and feel good inside. Does it bother you? Do you want me to stop?”

“No, not at all, I just never knew. I always kinda liked it I guess. It’s OK, it makes me feel good too, kinda important to you.”

“Kool, you are important to me. The most important.”

“I was gonna say now that were buzzed it’d be a good time to have our talk, but it looks like we already are I guess.”

“Ha ha, yah, and it’s probably better this way, it’s not forced.”

“Have you been OK lately Cody?”

“I don’t know, I guess as good as I can be.”

“What’s wrong, and what would make things better?”

“Just things Nika, things I can’t change, things that kinda scare me sometimes.”

“You wanna tell me about them?”

“I don’t know, I thought I did, but it’s always easier when you’re not around, and I play out in my head that we talk and I tell you all sorts of things. But when were together, it never seems as easy.”

“Like how long have you been keeping this and feeling whatever it is Cody?”

“At least a couple years now. Maybe more.”

“And all the time we’ve spent together and sleepovers and stuff you never thought about talking to me?”

“Sure, I’ve thought about it lots of times, I’ve just never stepped up and done it.”

“You afraid I’ll not like whatever it is, or get mad at you?”

“I don’t know. Maybe not get mad, but maybe just be disappointed in me and not wanna be around me anymore.”

“So if you don’t talk to me and tell me, then it’s gonna go away?”

“No, it’s never gonna go away.”

“So whatever it is, it’s how it is, and you can’t change it. So you wanna just keep on going and never bring it up? I mean whatever it is, it’s already reality, so whether you tell me or not, it’s not gonna change right?”

“Well, yah, I guess. I mean, I don’t know. Just let me think a minute.”

“Its OK Cody, we have all night.”

“Shit, I gotta pee, that’s three cans now. I’m soo buzzed.”

“Haha, me too. It feels weird huh?”

Cody got up and went outside to the balcony to pee, and I walked over to our snack bag and brought it over to the bean bags. I could see Cody wipe his eyes as I could tell when he walked away he was starting to tear up. So sensing he was probably hurting – just a “twinergy” type feeling that he may need me – I walked outside to the balcony to join him, if for nothing more to just be close and maybe put a hand on his shoulder. I put my hand on his shoulder and he said, “common Nika, just give me a little space.”

So I Walked about eight or ten feet to his right and looked over the yard to my left in his direction. He was standing there, but nothing was coming out, so I figured he may be there a while.

“Come on Nika, shit dude, I can’t go with you staring at me like that.”

“Oh shit, sorry Cody, I wasn’t staring at you. And we always pee in front of each other. You getting shy or something?”

“No, I don’t know, it’s just not happening now for some reason. I don’t know why.”

“OK, OK. I’ll face the other way.”

I turned my head to the right and felt the breeze blow on my warm face, and it felt incredible. The smell was insane as well. Another stronger gust came threw as the wind was picking up and a felt a couple small drops of misty rain on my face, and I was in heaven. I heard a few splashes on the deck below and could tell Cody was struggling to get a stream started, but it was beginning to happen. I figured he might be awhile, so I better just enjoy the breeze and accept he gets stage fright when he drinks.

As I was standing there and another minute or two passed, I heard an “Ahhhhhh, it’s about fucking time,” as a steady stream began to splash the deck below, and could tell Cody was in heaven. Just then a big gust blew in and I got a weird tingling on the little hairs on the back of my neck.

I was now on the other side of the balcony from Cody and something made me gasp and shocked me too attention as the little hairs on my arms and neck stuck straight out and I had a strange premonition. I bolted to my left and began to run towards Cody, and saw Cody turn to look at me with a half smile as he raised an eyebrow. He saw me charging him and held his hand out as he mouthed, “Stop Nika, Stop”!

I could not hear a thing except my heart beating as everything was in slow motion. The rain had begun coming down a little harder and I had a very bad feeling deep down in my gut like I had been here before.

As I made it to Cody’s location, he had turned facing me with both hands up with one holding a can anticipating an impact as his stream of urine was hitting the wooden deck and then my leg. I felt as if I had stumbled or been pushed as I slammed into him cutting off his stream and sending us both crashing to the floor.

Just then, at the moment of our tumble, another large gust blew in, and then a “SNAP”, ear piercing LOUD!
