Chapter 4: Partners
“Oh, erm, hi.” Jason moved back away from the kitchen door, allowing
Daniel to enter.
“What’s up, you sound like you weren’t expecting me?”
“Yeah, er, sorry. I guess I was thinking about other things.” Jason
turned his back on his friend and crossed the kitchen to the fridge.
“Want a drink of something?”
“Sure, what have you got?”
“Sprite or Cola.”
“I’ll have a Sprite.”
Jason retrieved a couple of cans from the fridge and the two boys sat
down at the kitchen table. There followed a rather uncomfortable silence
as neither boy seemed sure of what to say. Daniel wanted to ask Jason
how he’d got on with the doctor, but at the same time he preferred to
avoid discussion of his own embarrassing experience. And so the two of
them sat in silence, avoiding looking at each other.
Draining the last of the drink, Daniel placed the empty can on the
tabletop in front of him. Holding it in his hands, he turned it around
in his fingers for several seconds, before pressing inwards with his
thumbs, crushing the thin aluminium. This was silly. “Want to talk about
“Me neither.” Daniel looked up at his friend and their eyes met. He
grinned and gave a short, dry laugh and Jason followed suit. “At least
you didn’t have your mother there, watching every little detail.”
“Maybe not, but Ben sure got a good eyeful.”
Daniel shrugged. “What’s the big deal? He’s your brother. Surely you’ve
seen each other naked before.”
“Yeah, but not for ages. And he’d never seen me with a boner before.”
Daniel felt his eyes go wide. “Ben saw you hard? Didn’t the doctor let
you turn away or anything?”
“No chance. He did the whole examination thing right there in front of
the little runt.”
“Phew!” Daniel let out a sharp breath. “That must have been pretty
embarrassing. At least I had my back to Mum most of the time while I was
naked. Though she did get a good look just for a second or two. Luckily
I wasn’t hard or anything when she saw me. I think if she’d seen me hard
I would have died. As it is, she’s been saying things about me being
‘mummy’s big boy’ and how nice it is to see me ‘all grown up’.”
Jason was grinning at his friend’s discomfort. “You’ve gone all red.”
“Yeah, so would you if your mother got to see everything you had. If she
doesn’t let it drop soon I might have to kill her.” Both boys laughed.
“The doctor seemed to be a pretty cool guy,” Daniel continued. “If Mum
hadn’t been there, it wouldn’t have been so bad.”
“You speak for yourself,” said Jason, with a grimace. “It was no fun
having another guy playing around with my dick.”
“Oh, so would you rather it had been a woman doctor?”
Jason appeared to consider this idea for second and then gave a wide
smile. “OK, you have a point. Maybe in this case it was better that it
was a guy.”
“So, you gonna be my partner then?” Daniel asked, his tone casual as if
the answer would be a forgone conclusion.
Jason looked uncomfortable, suddenly seeming to find his drink-can
incredibly interesting. “I can’t,” he muttered, eventually.
“What...? Why?” His friend’s answer had caught Daniel completely be
surprise. He’d just assumed that since they were best friends they would
naturally be partnering each other.
“I’ve got to partner Ben,” said Jason. Slowly he raised his eyes. “I
told the doctor this afternoon that me and Ben would be partners.”
“I’m sure Doctor Lomax will let you change your mind,” Daniel said,
“That’s not the problem. It’s Ben. The runt doesn’t know anyone else
taking part. On the way home this afternoon I told him I’d be partnering
you and not him, but when we got home he went straight to the phone and
called Dad on his mobile. Dad says I’ve got to go with Ben and that’s
the end of it.”
“Oh, I see.” This news had well and truly taken the wind out of Daniel’s
sails. He didn’t really know what would be happening in future sessions
with the doctor, but he felt pretty sure that for much of the time they
would be required to be undressed, and the prospect of going through
that ordeal with someone other than Jason suddenly made the whole thing
seem even more daunting that it had before. Besides, if he were honest
with himself, there was another reason why he had really wanted Jason to
be his partner. Recently his feelings for Jason had gone beyond simple
friendship. Often, during the night when he lay in bed, he would think
of his friend and his cock would become hard. Sometimes he would rub
himself as he imagined the two of them touching each other’s bodies. A
few moments ago, hearing Jason describe how he had had an erection in
front of Ben had caused Daniel’s dick to stir in his pants and it had
occurred to him that if they were partners, maybe he would get the
chance to see the boy with a full stiffie. Now all of his hopes had been
suddenly dashed. “Well, never mind, I guess I’ll have to find one of the
other guys to partner me.” He forced his face into a smile that he
“I’m sorry dude.” Jason pushed his hand across the table until his
fingers made contact with the bare skin of Daniel’s arm. The
uncharacteristic “touchy” gesture caused a flutter in Daniel’s stomach
and, if anything, made his sense of disappointment even worse. Jason
frowned. “I’d much rather it be with you than with the runt. Especially
after what I found out about him today.”
“What was that?” Daniel asked, more for something to say than out of any
“Look, I promised him I wouldn’t say anything, so you’ve got to keep
this to yourself.” Jason leaned forwards across the table and his voice
dropped to a conspiratorial whisper. “Him and Billy Stanton are playing
“What do you mean by playing around?” Daniel had a very good idea what
the other boy meant, but his mind refused to accept it without
“You know. Playing with each other’s dicks and stuff.” Jason’s
expression revealed exactly what he thought about guys who did that sort
“You’ve got to be kidding! Did Ben really tell you that?”
Jason shrugged. “Well, he didn’t actually admit it, but I swear that’s
what the two of them are doing.”
“Yeah, sure.” Daniel grinned and gave his friend a sceptical look. He
found this news a little hard to believe. Though at the same time, the
thought of Ben and Billy Stanton ‘playing around’ had caused the strange
fluttering feeling to return in his stomach, accompanied by definite
stirrings in the area of his groin. Quickly he turned his mind to other
things and concentrated instead on his disappointment that Jason would
not after all be his partner in the Sexual Development study. That
appeared to do the trick.
By this time Jason had finished his own drink and, not to be outdone, he
made a show of crushing his own can. “Want to go up to my room and
listen to some music?” he asked, picking up both cans and dropping them
into the bin.
“Sure, sounds good.” In fact, to Daniel, any suggestion that involved
spending time with Jason sounded good, especially one that meant they
would be sitting together on his friend’s bed. He got up and followed
the other boy from the room.
Daniel had taken off his shoes on entering the house, since Jason’s mum
was a stickler for keeping shoes off of her carpets, and the boys
climbed the stairs in their stocking-feet. As they crossed the landing,
Jason made a show of walking as silently as he could and, with a
mischievous grin on his face, he motioned for Daniel to do the same. The
reason for this strange behaviour quickly became obvious: to get to
Jason’s room they first had to pass Ben’s, and the younger boy’s door
was slightly ajar. Soft voices were coming from inside.
Jason waved his hand for Daniel to come closer and whispered directly
into his friend’s ear. “The two little pervs are in there together.
Listen and you’ll see I’m right about them.”
Daniel shook his head and frowned. It didn’t seem right spying on the
two boys like this. Though the twinges of guilt he was feeling were not
enough to overcome his curiosity and he leaned closer to the slightly
open door so that he could hear better.
At first Daniel found it difficult to make out what was being said, but
as he listened and concentrated he became aware that the conversation
the two younger boys were having was, of course, about the visit to the
doctor earlier that day. Billy hadn’t been selected to take part in the
study and so was extremely interested in finding out what had happened
and Ben appeared more than willing to satisfy his eager audience.
“...ages since I’d seen him without his clothes on. He’s got a really
hot body. It’s a pity he’s such a jerk.” This was Ben’s voice, obviously
talking about his older brother.
Daniel looked at his friend and grinned. Jason just pulled a face as
though he were chewing on something unpleasant.
“He got hard pretty quick when the doc played around with his dick.” Ben
continued. “His dick wasn’t as big as I thought it would be and I
thought he’d have more hair than that; he didn’t really have much at
“Wow, I wish I could have seen it,” Billy replied. “I’ve always thought
your brother was pretty hot.”
Daniel could see Jason’s face begin to redden as he listened to these
two youngsters making personal comments about his body. Daniel knew his
friend was extremely sensitive about the fact that he hadn’t developed
quite as much as most of the other boys of his age, and he was about to
suggest that they move into Jason’s room and leave the two boys to their
conversation when something Ben was saying caught his attention.
“...I thought he was going to cry. Turns out that the skin on his dick
won’t go back very well and he thought the doctor would make him have it
“What, his dick? came Billy’s amazed voice.
“No, you dork, just the skin. The doc was really cool about it and told
him it would be ok. I’m glad because even though he is a total shit-head
sometimes I wouldn’t want him have to have something like that done.
Besides, his dick looks really cool. He must have liked the doc playing
with it because he got all sticky, like he was getting ready to shoot
Jason’s face was flaming. He stood and, tugging on Daniel’s arm, he
nodded furiously towards his own room. By this stage Daniel was
reluctant to move, since he wanted to hear more about how Jason had
become excited, but he gave in to his friend’s silent demands and
allowed himself to be dragged away.
Once inside Jason’s room, the teenager angrily closed the door and threw
himself face down onto his bed. “The little bastard is going to tell
everybody,” he muttered, miserably.
Daniel shrugged. “Don’t worry about it; it’s not such a big deal.
Besides, just because he’s told Billy doesn’t mean he’s going to tell
“Easy for you to say it’s not big deal. It’s not you that they’re
“Yeah, I know.” Daniel sat on the edge of the bed, not sure what to say.
There were a few minutes of very uncomfortable silence. Daniel was
intensely curious about Jason’s tight foreskin and wanted to ask about
it, but it was obvious from the boy’s reaction that this was not a
subject that he would be willing to discuss. “I guess you’re right about
the two of them playing around together,” Daniel said, eventually, in an
effort to at least get his friend talking.
“Yeah, the filthy little pervs.” Jason rolled onto his back and scowled.
“Once they’re done talking about me they’ll probably spend the rest of
tonight playing with each other’s dicks.
Daniel sighed inwardly and refrained from saying that this was something
he wouldn’t mind trying himself. Instead he just smiled. “Well, if
that’s what makes them happy.”
Jason gave a frown. “I wish it was you that was going to be my partner
and not the runt. The thought of him telling his pervy little friend
everything that happens really turns my stomach.”
This time Daniel let the sigh go. He was wishing exactly the same thing,
if not for the same reasons. If only...
Daniel sat impatiently through the morning’s lessons, constantly
glancing up at the slow moving hands of the clock and only listening
with half an ear to what the teachers were saying. The news that Jason
would be partnering his brother, Ben, had come as a big disappointment,
but Daniel wasn’t about to give in so easily. He’d thought of little
else since Jason had told him about the situation and now he thought
he’d come up with a possible solution to the problem. He hadn’t
mentioned it to Jason yet; he wanted to check out whether it was
possible first and, unfortunately, he had to wait until lunch time
before he could do that.
At long last the sound of the bell indicated the start of the lunch
break and Daniel quickly tossed his books into his bag. “There’s
something I need to do. I’ll catch you outside the school canteen in a
few minutes,” he told a surprised Jason. Without waiting for a reply, he
hurried out of the classroom.
A couple of minutes later Daniel was outside the door of Dr. Lomax’s
converted classroom. As he looked at the closed door, the boy noticed a
slight jittery feeling in the pit of his stomach and put this down to
the memories of his experiences the last time he was inside this room.
He lifted his hand to knock, but before he could do so the door opened.
Daniel had to take a quick step back to avoid a collision as the young
doctor came out, his jacket in his hand.
“Oh, erm, Daniel isn’t it? Did you want me for something? I was just on
my way out to get some lunch.” There had only been the very slightest
hesitation before the doctor had managed to put a name to the face.
“Yeah.” For some reason the youngster felt his face redden and had to
fight to untangle the knots in his tongue. “Could I talk to you for a
“Sure, come on inside.” The man re-entered the room, holding the door
for Daniel to follow. “What can I do for you?”
“Adam,” the man interrupted.
“I’d rather you just called me Adam. The ‘Dr.’ bit is useful for
impressing parents but when it’s not necessary I prefer to be less
“Oh, OK, Adam.” Daniel stopped. He’d gone over and over in his head what
he had intended to say but the interruption had thrown him completely.
“So, Daniel, what’s the problem?” the doctor asked, with a friendly
smile as he seated himself on the corner of his desk.
Nervously, Daniel explained how he and Jason wanted to partner each
other in the study, but Jason was being made to partner Ben.
The doctor listened patiently and then shook his head. “I’d love to help
you Daniel, but if Jason’s dad says that he has to partner his brother,
I can’t overrule that.”
“Oh, I understand that,” said Daniel. “But I was wondering whether maybe
the three of us could sort of partner each other.” This was the basis of
the boy’s idea and he held his breath as he awaited the reply.
The man frowned and looked unhappy. “It’s an interesting idea, but it
could make things a little bit difficult. I don’t really think it would
Daniel’s heart sank into his shoes. He had been sure the doctor would
say it would be OK. His disappointment must have been obvious on his
face, because Adam reached out and put his hand on the boy’s shoulder.
“Don’t get upset about it. There must be some other way around this
problem. Isn’t there someone else who Ben might be willing to partner
Daniel shook his head. “None of his friends have been picked to take
part in the study.”
“Hmm, well how about if we widen things out a bit. Does he have any
close friends who aren’t taking part?”
“Oh, yeah,” said Daniel, nodding and trying to keep the knowing grin off
his face. “He’s REALLY close friends with a boy called Billy Stanton.
But would it be ok for him to have a partner who wasn’t taking part?”
This time it was the doctor’s turn to shake his head. “That is the
possible fly in the ointment. The situation at the moment is that
several of the boys who were originally selected have dropped out, for
various reasons. So, I’ll be looking for other boys to replace them.
You’re job is to convince this Billy Stanton to be one of those boys. Do
that and it looks like your problem will be solved.”
“You mean I’ve got to get Billy to volunteer? What chance have I got of
getting any boy to volunteer for something like this?”
The doctor gave a tight smile. “Sorry, Daniel, but that’s the best I can
offer you. It wouldn’t hurt to give it a go. You never know, he might
even say yes. Oh, and if he does say yes I’ll need his parents to
complete one of these consent forms.” He reached into a drawer and
pulled out a sheet of paper identical to the one that Daniel’s mother
had signed. He gave this to the teenager.
Daniel accepted the form, though he could already imagine what Billy’s
reaction would be. “I suppose I can ask,” he said, without much hope.
“Thanks for your time, anyway, Dr. Lom... I mean Adam.” It was going to
take some getting used to, using the doctor’s first name.
“No problem, Daniel. I hope it works out for you. Give it your best shot
and one of those special smiles of yours and he won’t be able to say no.
Though if he does say no, come back and see me and maybe between us we
can think of something else.”
“Yeah, thanks. I’ll see you around,” said Daniel, smiling shyly as he
went through the door. What exactly had the man meant by one of his
Having left the doctor, Daniel set off in the direction of the school
canteen knowing that Jason would be waiting impatiently for him.
However, before he was half way there he had another thought: there was
no point in telling Jason about this scheme and getting his friend’s
hopes up only to have them dashed again. Especially seeing as the
chances of this working out appeared to be so slim. Maybe the best thing
to do was to strike while the iron was hot so to speak. Jason would have
to wait a little bit longer, Daniel decided. He was going to seek out
Ben and Billy and get this over with.
It took him longer than he expected to find his prey, but eventually
Daniel located Ben and Billy sitting side by side on a low wall, talking
“Hi,” said Daniel, sauntering up to them in what he hoped was a casual
“Hi,” Ben replied, with a smile as he looked the older boy up and down.
Daniel could have sworn he saw the youngster’s eyes linger on his
“Can I talk to you for a minute?” the older teen asked.
“I guess so,” Ben replied with a shrug.
“Look, it’s about this partnering thing...”
Ben’s face immediately took on a stubborn expression. “Sorry, Daniel, I
know you’re Jason’s best friend and everything, but I don’t know anyone
else, and I don’t want to do it with anyone I don’t know.”
“What if you knew someone else who was taking part?”
“There isn’t anyone else.”
“There could be.” Daniel briefly flicked his eyes towards Billy then
back to Ben.
Both of the younger boys appeared puzzled and it would be fair to say
that Billy was also starting to look a bit uncomfortable with the way
that this conversation was going.
“Billy’s not taking part,” said Ben, matter-of-factly.
“No,” said Daniel, “but he could. Dr. Lomax is looking for some more
boys to replace the ones who have dropped out.”
In front of Daniel’s eyes, the colour drained from Billy’s face. “No
fucking Way!” exclaimed the twelve-year-old, jumping to his feet and
backing away. “There’s no way I’m taking part in that thing. I know my
mum. She will insist on being there for this first appointment, and
there is no way I’m getting naked with her watching. And that’s apart
from all the stuff that I’d probably have to do later on. No fucking
way!” he repeated.
This was pretty much the response that Daniel had expected. It was
disappointing, but at least he’d tried. “Oh well, I just thought I’d
ask.” He turned miserably away, intending to go find Jason, who he knew
would be doing a war dance by now.
“Hang on a sec, Daniel.” This was Ben’s voice. It seemed that at least
one of the boys hadn’t dismissed the idea out of hand. Jason’s little
brother got down from the wall and went over to Billy. There followed a
whispered but rather animated conversation between the two
twelve-year-olds. Daniel couldn’t hear what they were saying, but it was
obvious that Ben was trying to talk his friend into accepting the
suggestion and Billy was having none of it. This went on for several
minutes. Eventually, Ben turned to Daniel with a grin on his face,
though the older boy noted that Billy still did not look too happy.
“If we do this for you, then you’re gonna have to do something for us in
return,” said Ben, looking at Daniel and his smile taking on a sly
“What’s that?” Daniel asked, warily. He felt a strange mixture of relief
and worry. At least now it appeared that there was a chance that things
could be worked out.
“Well,” Ben began, sidling up to the older boy, perhaps a little
nervously. “Like Billy said, his mum will insist on being there when he
goes to see the doctor that first time and it’s gonna be really
embarrassing for him. So we want something back. We’ve decided that for
every time Billy sees the doctor, you have to come see us afterwards,
and everything the doctor does to Billy, we get to do to you.”
Daniel actually laughed, the suggestion was so ludicrous. “This has got
to be a joke!”
“Nope, either you agree to that or I stay as Jason’s partner. It’s up to
These guys couldn’t possibly be serious. Daniel realised that he was
shaking his head. Were these two kids really saying they wanted him to
strip off and let them touch his dick and stuff like the doctor did? He
thought back to what the doctor had done to him at his first
appointment. Other than the man feeling his dick and balls, there hadn’t
really been much else. So maybe, considering what he was going to get
out of it, letting Ben and Billy do that to him wouldn’t be so bad. The
problem was, he had no idea what future sessions would involve. If he
said yes he didn’t know what he might be agreeing to. “I’ll tell you
what,” he said. “I’ll agree, but only for the first session, not later
Ben frowned and returned to Billy for another quick whispered
conversation. He turned back again. “Make it the first three sessions
and you’ve got a deal.”
“First two,” Daniel replied, quickly, trying to limit the damage. Maybe
the second session would involve nothing but talking or something, and
that way the joke would be on the two younger boys.
“Done,” Ben agreed, a wide grin on his face, his eyes once more going
down to Daniel’s crotch, this time quite obviously. “This is gonna be
“For you, maybe,” Billy muttered. “You’re not the one who’s going to be
standing around naked in front of your mum.”
“Been there, done that,” said Daniel through a tight-lipped smile as he
handed the younger boy the consent form for his parents to sign. “Just
one more thing. Do you think you could sort of not mention our
arrangement to Jason?”
“Don’t worry,” laughed Ben, “it can be our secret.”
With a nod and feeling like he was walking on air, Daniel left the
youngsters and went to find Jason. He’d decided that letting the two
twelve-year-olds have a feel of his cock was a small price to pay if he
got the chance to spend some time with Jason naked. If his luck were in,
maybe he might even get the chance to see his friend with a boner. Just
the thought of this caused his own dick to start hardening and he
quickly put his hands into his pockets to try to disguise the all too
obvious bulge in the front of his trousers.
“Where the hell have you been?” Jason snarled, a few minutes later, as
Daniel approached him at the door to the school canteen. “I’ve been
waiting here forever.”
“Yeah, sorry,” replied Daniel, in what he hoped was a suitably contrite
manner. Then he could hold his grin back no longer. “Guess what? I’ve
got the best news in the world. We can be partners in the study after
“What about Ben?” Jason asked, sceptically.
“He’s partnering Billy.”
“But Billy’s not taking part.”
“He is now,” Daniel laughed. “So was that worth having to wait a few
Jason still looked a little unsure. “Is this on the level?” Then, seeing
his friend’s nod of confirmation, his own face split in a grin. “That’s
brilliant! I still wish I wasn’t doing it at all, but if I have to do it
I’d much rather do it with you than with the runt. How did you manage
“Best not to ask,” said Daniel. He slapped his best friend on the back
and the two of them went to get something to eat.
