Summary: Sometimes friends do really stupid things that get you into trouble and they get off scot-free! This is one of those times. So now because Cheeks couldn't keep his mouth shut and told Adam's ex that he's in LOVE and so fucking HAPPY in this relationship, that, by a way, Adam doesn't actually have! Adam gets an invite to said ex's wedding and ends up going to spend four days with his ex's family with a paid date found for him by Cheeks.
Tommy Joe is practically every dirty fantasy of Adam's and on top of that he's a real sweetheart. Adam is so screwed because four days of playing boyfriends with Tommy is going to be torture, especially since he told Adam that he doesn't mix business with pleasure.
Then Cheeks dares Adam to make Tommy bend his rules and Adam has never been one to back away from one of those. And that's how he finds himself with Tommy smiling up at him in the front garden of Adam's former almost in-laws. "Let the games begin," Tommy says. Indeed, Adam thinks.

It's late and the party is winding down when Adam lets go of Thomas who he had been dancing with and looks over at Tommy sitting at a table in deep conversation with Allison. They sit close together and whenever Tommy animates too much with his hands Allison grabs them and smiles wickedly at him. Tommy smiles back letting her hold his hands and leans closer to say whatever is on his mind. Adam feels jealous of Allison having all of Tommy’s attention, of getting to hold his hands. Thomas follows Adam’s eyes and holds Adam back with a light touch.
“Don’t let this one get away Adam.”
“Well, I didn’t have much say in the matter last time did I?” Adam snaps.
Thomas looks like he doesn’t know what hit him and Adam mentally kicks his own ass.
“Look, Thomas, I didn’t mean it like that, I am happy for you…it is just… well Tommy ‘s work….”
“Tommy’s work?... could what?.... Isn’t he as musician?”
“Yeah… nevermind. I guess I’m just a jealous bastard.”
“Hmm, yeah I guess I can understand that, and I AM sorry Adam. We never wanted to hurt you.”
Adam puts a hand on top of Thomas’s and pats it twice but not once does he take his eyes off Tommy.
“Don’t worry about it. Would you-“
“Not at all. Go.”
The DJ changes the mood of the music as Adam crosses the floor and when Adam recognizes the song his mood changes too. He can’t hold something Tommy didn’t do against him, and if he is honest with himself he knows that Tommy still hasn’t torn off the last piece of armor around his heart. Adam decides that he just has to convince Tommy that he should play bass in his band instead of his current job, because let’s face it, he does not want others to ‘date’ Tommy, fake or not. But he also knows he has to be careful and let Tommy do things at his pace.
He reaches out and touches Tommy’s shoulder and immediately he’s got Tommy‘s attention. Brown eyes meet his blue ones in an open and fond gaze. Adam’s heart skips a beat because there is no veil, no defense in those brown eyes, Tommy practically radiates happiness. Adam extends his hand.
“Dance with me?” he asks softly, Tommy shakes his head, but still takes Adam’s hand.
“Not drunk enough. Just buzzing.”
Adam pulls a little, just enough to get Tommy off the chair.
“Please?” Adam whispers into Tommy’s ear. Tommy bites his lip and nods. He follows Adam out onto the dance floor. The song is mellow and soft and this kind of dancing Tommy is okay with, he can do a little swaying. He wraps his arms around Adam’s neck and Adam puts his hands on the small of his back pulling him all the way in. Adam leads and Tommy just lets go and follows.
“I’m so fucked, I’m never gonna be able to say no to you am I?” Tommy says and plays a little with Adam's hair.
“God, I hope not.” Adam sighs happily.
“Just, don’t abuse it!” Tommy winks, taking the edge off the words.
Adam lifts a hand runs his knuckles along Tommy’s jawline looking him in the eyes and sings along to the song playing,
Darlin' if, if we fall in love tonight
you're gonna be alright
your heart is in good hands
Darlin' if, if we fall in love again
on me you can depend, if you could take a chance
Open your heart and let love, love again.
“Oh my God, you’re cheesy.” Tommy grins and Adam shrugs not taking the words to heart when the man in his arms is so clearly affected by it.
“I’ll never abuse it baby, but I’m not gonna lie and say it doesn’t make me happy either.”
Tommy pulls Adam down for a kiss and for a while they just bask in the feeling of each other and sway to the music.
“Adam?” Tommy asks quietly.
“Would you -”
“Would I what?” Adam leans back a little and tips Tommy's head up so he can see him properly, feeling like this might be important.
“Uhm…. I don’t know…..” Tommy closes his eyes, and Adam knows suddenly that whatever Tommy is about to ask him is not only important but just might be Tommy putting himself on the line.
Tommy opens his eyes and lets out a restrained sigh, “uhm I would like you to meet Mary.”
“Aww, Tommy Joe, you’re serious aren’t you?” Adam breaks out in a huge smile.
“Yeah.” It comes out breathy and shaky and Adam stops moving them to the music and it hits him, it hits him hard.
“Oh my god Tommy…… this is you telling me, you really want this… me!.... you trust me!”
“I would love that, just say when!! I’ll be there.”
Tommy rests his head on Adam’s shoulder and a small content sound escapes him.
“Thank you.” Tommy sighs and Adam hugs him close, moving them slowly to the music again.
“So what happens now?” Adam asks quietly. He's sitting on the bed leaning back on his elbows, suitcase packed and ready. Tommy is still packing but stops for a moment to look at Adam.
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, um, this was all pretty intense and I don’t want to go back just yet. I want to stay here with you, cocooned in our own little world. But I guess that I just need to know how we do this,” He waves a hand between them.
“Oh? I thought, you said, you wanted to date me?! Isn’t that supposed to be the next step?” Tommy leaves the packing and walks over to the bed, straddling Adam’s thighs. Adam reaches up and snakes his arms around Tommy’s neck, pulls him down on the bed with him and kisses him, just a light touch of lips before answering the question.
“I do! Yes! But how, - I mean we kinda missed a few steps here didn’t we?”
Tommy snuggles a bit closer, getting comfortable on Adam’s chest. He loves the feeling of being small and delicate even moreso when Adam moves his hand lower to support him.
“Yeah I guess so… but I would still like to…. I don’t know….go on dates?”
“Yeah me too… but the idea about dates are like getting to know each other… to feel out if there is chemistry. We already know there is!!” Adam grabs Tommy ass and squeezes to emphasize his words. Tommy smiles against Adam’s throat but then raises his head to look Adam in the eyes.
“But there is still a lot we need to learn about each other.”
“I know baby, I guess I just don’t know where to go from here. Do I just drop you off at your apartment with your number in hand and call you up or -”
“We could make plans right away if you want to. Would that help?”
A huge smile lights up Adam’s face and he pushes a little at Tommy so he can get his hand in his pocket, “Yeah let’s do that.”
Tommy grins and rolls off him to do the same.
“So when are you free?” Tommy asks when he finds his calendar.
Adam frowns looking at his own schedule, “Not before Friday. Got meetings and promo stuff the entire week. I won’t be home until pretty late. Hmmm, does Friday work for you?”
“No Adam, I gotta work remember? David is picking me up around 7 pm.”
Adam frowns and sighs heavily, clearly unhappy about that. Tommy squirms a little; he hates the hurt look on Adam’s face. Hates that he put it there.
“Yeah that’s right, sorry, I forgot. So um the rest of the weekend is out of the question too?” Adam asks, his voice as neutral as he can make it. But Tommy hears the crack in it and swallows hard before answering, his voice one big apology.
“Yeah, well I actually don’t know. I’m pretty sure I’ll be back home Saturday afternoon or early night. But I’ll be beat.”
“So what about Sunday?”
“Band practice.” Tommy says in a small voice, feeling utterly disappointed that it'll be at least a week before they get to see each other again.
“Fuck! Tommy, I don’t want to wait until the week after to see you!” Adam hisses, putting words to how Tommy feels too.
“I know. What about Friday afternoon? Um, you could stay until David shows up?”
Adam immediately lights up. He rolls so he's lying on his side watching Tommy who’s worrying his lip and looking hopefully back at him.
“Yeah that might work. I’m free around noon.” Adam pins Tommy under him and oh so very slowly he bends down eyes fixed on Tommy’s lips “Maybe we could do lunch?”
“Yeah,” Tommy’s hands curls up in Adam’s hair tugging him gently down the rest of the way and right before their lips meet Tommy smirks and his eyes sparkle. “Uh huh, and later you could do me! How’s that?”
Adam groans loudly. “God, Tommy! Your mouth!”
Tommy snickers. “Oh admit it! You love it.”
“Hmm. Even more when it's on me.”
The kiss isn’t urgent but searching and gentle with tenderness and warmth and just perfect.
Friday didn't come fast enough. Tommy had made sure everything was ready for work later; he didn’t want to miss a minute with Adam.
And for what feels like the millionth time he checks the time on his phone. He laughs when he thinks about Mia’s reaction earlier when he did the same thing. The phone hasn’t left his side since last weekend. He and Adam text each other constantly and at night they talk for hours. He feels like a fucking teenager and couldn’t care less what the world thinks of him.
When the doorbell chimes he takes a deep breath and tries to calm down in hopes of not knocking Adam off his feet from sheer excitement. For a brief moment he thinks it is a little odd that he isn’t nervous, but the moment passes and he just can’t wait to see Adam again.
He opens the door, swings it wide open with a huge smile plastered all over his face. Adam is grinning back at him. Without as much as a word they just step right into each other’s arms. Adam inhales deeply, settles his face into Tommy's neck.
“God, I’ve missed you, a week is too fucking long.” Tommy says into Adam’s neck where his own face is buried and Adam tightens the hug, silently agreeing with him.
Tommy steps back and Adam follows him, closing the front door behind them. The minute the door closes Tommy presses Adam against it and surges up to kiss him. The kiss is searching and thorough and Tommy groans. He is completely overwhelmed with how much he has missed the feeling of Adam pressed against him and how he tastes, pushing his tongue in he chases that taste. Tommy just loses himself in the feeling of Adam, savoring it.
Adam moans deep in his throat when Tommy sucks on his tongue and the heated ‘Shit’ coming from Adam only makes Tommy even more frantic. He needs this just as fucking much as the air that he breathes and his hands start to roam Adam’s body, searching for warm skin.
Adam’s knees buckle a little, grinding their pelvises together and Tommy gasps. Adam grips Tommy’s ass to get even closer, they’re both panting hard when they start to rub against each other. With lust running wildly in his veins, Tommy tries to get his hand between them, desperate to get his hands on Adam's cock. He is pulling helplessly at Adam’s belt, until Adam bats his hands away and unbuckles it himself.
Shoving his hand right in Tommy finally gets to close his hand around Adam, the other hand unzipping to make more space. Adam groans desperately, hands slipping from Tommy’s body to skid over the door struggling to find something to hold on to. He throws his head back and the small thud makes Tommy look up into Adam eyes, they burn with a need matching his own, pupils blown and heavy lids.
Tommy almost doesn't know what to do with the intensity of that gaze, he wants everything at once, everything Adam wants to give away, and it hits him that he is no longer falling for the guy, he is completely and utterly and truly in love for the first time in his life and it scares the absolute fuck out of him, the realization blindsiding him for a fleeting moment.
But then Adam makes a needy noise and pushes into Tommy‘s hand and his body just takes over and he sinks to his knees holding Adam’s eyes locked with his the entire way down. Adam breathes hard and heavy but he somehow manages to help Tommy get his jeans and briefs down enough so Tommy can get his cock out.
Tommy tears his eyes away from Adam’s and looks hungrily at his cock instead. His mouth waters and he licks his lips. He buries his face in Adam’s groin and in a silent plea Adam spreads his legs as much as he can with his jeans half way down his thighs. Tommy moans and he feels Adam’ knees gives out, so he shoves Adam back against the door steadying him with his hands right above his hipbones. Adam cries out as Tommy mouths over his balls and then licks behind them, hot wet tongue moving over soft skin.
The only sounds Adam makes are babbling, senseless pleas as his hips thrust forward brokenly on trembling legs. Tommy leans forward to take in what he can of Adam. Hollowing his cheeks and sucking in earnest, he teases Adam with little swirls of his tongue around the head and dips into the slit and back to sucking until he finds a rhythm and brings a hand down to play with Adam’s balls.
Tommy can hear Adam breathing, trying to regain control and looks up when he feels his hands in his hair. The grip on his hair tightens and Tommy knows what Adam is seeing, can picture it, his lust-filled eyes looking up at him, his pretty pink lips stretched and glistening around his cock and he can't help but moan. He feels Adam's balls tighten in his hand.
“Oh God, Tommy stop.”
Tommy lets go with a pop. “Why?” He flicks his tongue over the head about to get back to business.
“Just get up here. I need to get my hands on you too.”
Tommy smirks and Adam hauls him up like he is a ragdoll or something and goes right for the button in Tommy’s jeans and somehow still manages to turn them a little so Tommy ends up against the wall, looking like he is about to break through his zipper as Adam fumbles his pants open with eager and trembling hands. Tommy licks along Adam’s neck and sucks up a mark on the pulse point and chases the sweet pain away again with another soothing lick. Adam gets his hand around Tommy's cock and as he strokes him, he fuses their mouths together in a wild and heated kiss, two forceful tongues wrestling for dominance.
Tommy’s pants slide down his legs and he kicks them off frantically. When they're clear Adam lifts him a little using the wall for support and Tommy wraps his legs around Adam’s waist so their dicks can rub together. He throws his arms around Adam to keep the balance.
Adam curves his fingers around their hard and slippery flesh and jerks them off together. Tommy rests his head against the wall, small hard stuttering pants and gutturals moans fill the air hot and heavy around them and in seconds they’re both coming in feverish thrusting spurts, come mixing as Adam strokes them through the aftershocks. Tommy kisses Adam sucking on his tongue and lips and swallows the small noises of pleasure they’re both still making.
“Holy shit.” Adam whispers and moves just enough for Tommy to slide down slowly and find his trembling legs again. Tommy knows he looks debauched, still panting and sweaty and utterly satisfied and Adam doesn’t look much better, with their come all over his hand and make-up smeared everywhere.
“Yeah, sorry didn’t mean to jump you like that.” Tommy says, but that is nowhere near what his eyes are saying and Adam grins happily.
“Oh you can welcome me like that every time and you’ll never hear a complaint cross these lips.” Adam points to his mouth and Tommy pushes off the wall to kiss them soft and lazily.
“We really should get cleaned up, and I’m sorry baby, but I doubt I’ll be decent for taking you out.” Adam looks down at himself to take in the damage of his clothing.
“We’ll order in and eat in bed.” Tommy says playfully and drags Adam towards the bathroom.
They spend the hours together in bed making out and talking, just enjoying being together and when it's finally time for Tommy to get ready, it's obvious that Adam really doesn’t want to let go and let Tommy out of bed.
“Stay here with me.” Adam whines and pins Tommy under him. Tommy brushes his hands through Adam’s hair and cradles his face.
“I would love to but I gotta work for a living,” He says with a sad smile, he doesn’t want to leave either.
“I know, I just wish,” Adam puts their foreheads together and closes his eyes.
Tommy's heart clenches, he can see the pain on Adam's face, knows that this is hurting Adam, hurting him a whole fucking lot.
“Yeah, but-“ he attempts.
“It’s just the images.” Adam says and raises his head to look at Tommy; he runs a thumb along Tommy’s lip.
“It is just a job Adam. I don’t get - I don’t feel like this. I don’t DO this.”
“No, I know but, come play for me?” Adam pleads.
“No, Adam.” Tommy’s voice is stern. But his hand caresses Adam soothingly.
“Our schedules would leave more time for this if you did.” Adam points out.
“Yeah, I can see that, but Adam-”
“You could do an audition. Not with me, but Monte, he’ll be honest to both of us.” Adam says hopefully and looks like a puppy scared of being kicked into a corner, Tommy hates that look, it drives daggers through his heart. He sighs.
“Adam I can’t be the reason that someone else loses their job.”
“But you wouldn’t be. He's already leaving. Got a break with his own band and wants to see if they can make it. Would you just consider it? Please?”
Tommy bites his lip and looks away, trying to gather his thoughts; he can’t do that looking at Adam. “Yeah, I’ll think about it.”
“Thanks baby, that’s all I need right now.”
An hour later they’re on the pavement watching David drive up to the curve and get out of the car. Tommy takes his luggage and turns to Adam. When David sees Adam he stays by the car leaning against it and waves a little to Tommy, who returns it. Adam frowns a little and pulls Tommy in for a fierce hug. Tommy clings to him and whispers, “It’ll be okay Adam. I’ll call you when I go to bed okay? Just to say good night?”
Adam puts a finger under Tommy’s chin and they lock gazes. Adam leans in and kisses Tommy possessively, making sure David gets the ‘hands off MY boyfriend’ message. When Tommy steps back, he feels a little shaken. Adam laces their fingers together and starts to walk them down to the car. Tommy shakes his head a little and tries to focus on David. David smiles tentatively and offers Adam his hand. Adam takes it and smirks when they greet each other. Adam releases his hand from Tommy’s and puts it on the small of his back before pressing a kiss to his temple.
“Talk to you tonight, then?” he asks and Tommy nods, still not sure how to use his voice.
David looks at Tommy and makes a gesture towards the car and Tommy nods again. Adam looks after the car as it drives away before turning to his own. He takes out his phone and types a quick ‘tonight! ’ and push send and almost instantly he gets one back with a smiley face.
