Ryan Connors was small. He had always been small. At 18 he was still only 4’11 and 90lbs he was the size of your average twelve year old, Ryan had blond hair which was always kept in a mushroom cut and bright blue eye. Ryan looked like a 12 year maybe younger and he knew. Everyone always called him cute. He hated being cute. All of the girls in his high school called him cute, he knew they didn’t mean this in an adult way but rather they thought he was cute the way a little boy is cute and he hated that. Because he was so small all of the other boys in school ignored Ryan. These things coupled with his uncle’s strict rule made it almost impossible for Ryan to have a social life.
Ryan’s uncle was a kind man who had raised Ryan since his parents died when he was 2 years old. Ryan loved his uncle but he was extremely over protective. This was partially due to Ryan’s size and partially due to the fact that Ryan still occasionally wet the bed and even more occasionally his pants if he got scared or was sick. These two things together made Ryan’s uncle feel the need to treat him with kid gloves. Ryan may be a young man of 18 but that’s not how he was treated, he wasn’t even treated like the 12 year old he looked like, in stead he was treated like a child of about 6. Ryan’s uncle Paul had always been a stay at home parent which was never a problem because their family had plenty of money. So every day he would drop Ryan off and pick him up from school. Ryan had never been aloud to drive, in fact it had never been a question he was simply too little and he knew it. When he got home from school Ryan was immediately changed out of his daytime training pants and into a diaper and put down for a nap. His uncle would wake him up an hour later and take him to the bathroom where he was given his bath; Uncle Paul would always kneel next to the tub to supervise Ryan’s play time then always insisted on washing Ryan completely. After his bath Ryan was dried then carried to his bedroom to be re-diapered and put into pajamas. Then Ryan was taken down stairs where he would sit at the kitchen table and do his homework while his uncle cooked dinner. After homework and dinner Ryan and his uncle would cuddle on the couch and watch tv, usually cartoons or something Disney because uncle Paul did not allow Ryan to watch anything with a rating high then PG. Every night at 8:00 Ryan was carried up to his bedroom where Uncle Paul would read him bed time stories and cuddle with him until he fell asleep. Each morning he was woken up and dressed by Uncle Paul. Ryan’s room also looked like a little boys. His walls and ceiling were painted to look like the sky. His room was filled with toy and he still slept in a little boy race care bed. Due to his size and his uncles insistence Ryan usually wore little boy clothes which just added to the perception that he was a little boy. It also didn’t help that Ryan was a sensitive child who was prone to tears when sad or scared.
Whenever Ryan cried Uncle Paul was always there with a kiss and a cuddle to make him feel better. In spite all of his over protectiveness Ryan loved his Uncle Paul who he knew loved him. Uncle Paul told him this several times a day. He always hugged and kissed and cuddled him and spent many hours a day taking care of Ryan. In fact Ryan knew that Uncle Paul had given up a lot of his life to care for Ryan but this was about to change. Ryan was scared but excited. He was about to leave behind his loving, over protective uncle and little boy life. Ryan was going to collage where he would become an adult with an adult life or so he thought.
It wasn’t easy, in fact it had taken the better part of the school year for Ryan to convince his uncle to allow him to go away to college. In the beginning Uncle Paul had flat out refused to let Ryan out of his sight for school. He had planned for Ryan to attend the local Junior college so life could continue as normal but Ryan had other plans. He has always gotten good grades and because his family had money he could afford to go anywhere he wanted to. In secret Ryan had applied to many great schools all of which were several hours away from his home which would make it impossible for him to commute. Ryan was accepted into an extremely competitive and prestigious private college which he knew was the only reason that his uncle eventually and with trepidation gave his permission for Ryan to leave home.
Ryan spent the summer after high school in what Uncle Paul called “growing up boot camp. During this time Uncle Paul taught Ryan how to bathe and dress himself, they had slowly been shortening his nap times and pushing his bedtime back. By the last week in July Ryan could successfully stay up until 9:30 without taking an afternoon nap. Ryan was now showering himself independently and going to bed without being tucked in. Uncle Paul had given Ryan his first cell phone and even taught him how to use the microwave. The biggest transition was Ryan’s transition from diapers and training pants to boxers. This had been a difficult process for Ryan but after almost 2 months he was able to stay completely dry both day and night. The thing Ryan missed the most was cuddle time. Since Uncle Paul had agreed to let Ryan go away there had been fewer hugs and kiss and a lot less cuddle time but he figured that being a big boy probably meant a lot less cuddle so he’d accepted it as part of the deal.
On the morning of September 1 Ryan was awoken a 6 am by the buzzing of his alarm clock. He quickly showered and got dressed while Uncle Paul packed the car. By 7 they were ready to make the 3 hour journey to Ryan’s new beginning. For the first time, Uncle Paul allowed Ryan to sit in the front seat because he said, he was being such a big boy. Ryan beamed and took his seat as Uncle Paul started the car. By 10 o’clock they had reached their destination.
Ryan took a breath, He was nervous! This was it he had to get out of the car. The transition to a new school in a new big city is difficult for everyone especially when you come from a small country town… but especially when just over 2 months ago you were a baby.
Uncle Paul was the first to unbuckle he patted Ryan’s knee and said “okay big boy lets do this” Ryan smiled Uncle Paul had stared to use the pet name Big boy since they had started growing up boot camp. Before that Uncle Paul had always called him baby. This new mature term of endearment gave Ryan a shot of confidence. He unbuckled his seat belt and opened the door. Ryan and his uncle first had to go check in. They went to the registration desk and found out that Ryan was living on the 3rd floor of the freshman dorms and that he was lucky because he had been placed room with its own bathroom. They also found out that Ryan Ryan’s roommate was named Michael ward.
They went back to their car and started to unload. They made the first trip with Uncle Paul taking all of the heavy things and Ryan carrying his suitcase and backpack. When they got to the third floor and Ryan’s room, they found the door locked. Ryan opened the door to find that it was empty currently but that his roommate had already moved in. They put everything down and went to make another trip. After their third trip they had gotten pretty much everything. They had just finished making Ryan’s bed, and setting up his computer, T.V. and mini-fridge when the door again opened, the sight before Ryan shocked and scared him a little. Into his room walked the biggest boy no… man Ryan had ever seen.
To say that Michael was tall was an understatement. Michael stood at 6’4 210 lbs to say that Ryan was intimidated was an understatement. He was afraid to live with this guy… he was afraid to be alone with him. Heck, he was afraid to make eye contact. Ryan solved this problem by attempting to memorize his shoes. Michael however looked right at Ryan and smiled. Sensing Ryan’s anxiety he walked over to him and bent down on one knee. When Ryan still refused to look up he cupped Ryan’s chin with his hand and gently forced him to look up. When their eyes met a few tear escaped Ryan’s eyes Michael gently wiped them away and said “hey little guy its okay. I know this is kind of scary but don’t worry you’ll be just fine. I’m mike and I’d bet anything that your Ryan yah?” Ryan for his part shyly nodded. Mike said in a cheery voice “well that makes us roommates and I just know we’ll be great friends! Ryan nodded a little more confidently this time. Mike then asked “can I have a hug”. When Ryan nodded his approval he was pulled into a genital but firm hug. Ryan was surprised at how safe this made him feel. After a minute Ryan was released from Mikes hold Mike stood up, He stroked Ryan’s cheek with his finger then tapped his nose and said “thanks little buddy I needed that” This time Ryan was able to squeak out a “your welcome”. Which once again make Mike smile and ruffle his hair.
Ryan’s uncle who had been watching this exchange took this moment to ask Ryan to go check the car for any forgotten items. Ryan did as he was asked and returned to report that they had forgotten nothing. As he re-entered the room he heard his uncle and Mike talking. His uncle was saying “thank you, that makes me feel a lot better” Seeing Ryan they stopped Uncle Paul turned to Ryan and said “Okay buddy, I should be going will you walk me out” Ryan nodded, Uncle Paul turned to Mike, extended his hand and said Nice to meet you Mike, I’ll be in touch.” Mike said Okay sir bye and please don’t worry.” Uncle Paul nodded put his arm around Ryan’s shoulder and together they walked out of the room.
As they walked down the hall Uncle Paul said Mikes really nice and I think you will be safe with him. Ryan didn’t fully understand what was meant by this but he nodded and asked “ Uncle Paul what were you and Mike talking about” Uncle Paul said “on nothing kiddo, I just asked him to help you out a bit, this being your first time away from home and all. He said he would so I said I would be in touch with you to later to work some things out that all. Ryan was nervous and asked “like what Uncle?’ Uncle Paul said “oh not much, just ask Mike, Sorry but I really need to go I have work tomorrow. I love and please call me tonight and be good” Ryan said he would and he was pulled into a tight hug. Once he was released Uncle Paul got into his car and with a final wave drove away. Ryan took a deep breath and fought his feelings of loneliness. He stood for a moment and closed his eyes in an effort to gather his emotions. He felt a gentle hand on his shoulder and opened his eye to find Mike standing before him.
Mike cupped Ryan’s cheek with his large hand, he squatted down so they were at eye level and said “you okay buddy, I know this is scary but don’t worry I’ll help you, however you need.” Still looking sad Ryan said “thank you sir” Mike gave Ryan’s shoulder a little squeeze and said, hey none of that, you don’t have to thank me we’re friends remember and please just call me Mike okay “okay Mike” Ryan responded. Mike then stood up and asked “how about we go to the cafeteria and get some lunch” Ryan nodded yes and to his surprise Mike grabbed his hand and led him to the dinning hall Ryan was too surprised to pull away or even comment so he just allowed Mike to hold his hand as they walked besides he knew somewhere deep inside that it felt right. When they got to the cafeteria Mike released Ryan’s hand then he stopped and looked confused for a second He looked a Ryan and said “I’m sorry buddy, I didn’t mean to hold your hand like that. I have five younger brothers and sister who I have been taking care of my whole life so that kind of thing comes naturally to me but please tell me if I become pushy okay?” Ryan just nodded.
The cafeteria was huge Ryan had never seen so much food in one place He felt almost confused. Mike noticed this and said “so champ how about chicken and veggies”. Ryan wanted to protest, the pizza looked really good but before he could be was being led to the meal station where he was served baked chicken, potatoes and roasted mixed vegetables. Next they made their way to the drink station passing dessert because Mike said “we’ll come back for that” When they got there Mike asked Ryan if milk was okay before Ryan could respond however, he found a glass of milk on his tray. This was starting to bug him but again he said nothing and they made their way to a table.
Once seated Mike and Ryan engaged in small talk while Mike ate and Ryan picked at his food. Mike talked about his family, how he loved children and wanted to be an early education major and the classes he was taking. It turned out that they shared two classes together their first morning class and the class before dinner Ryan told Mike that he didn’t quite know what he wanted to do. He also told Mike about his parents dying and how excited he was to be away from home. When Mike was finished eating Ryan asked if he wanted to get dessert but Mike gave his still full plate a look and said we can’t someone needs to finish his food.” Ryan said “oh no its fine I’m not that hungry” Mike said “well you have to eat” Ryan was getting huffy he looked at Mike and said in a slightly raised voice I didn’t like this, so I don’t want to eat it besides I really wanted pizza but you kind of… took over. Mike matched Ryan’s tone to a much greater effect “ well pizza is not a meal and you need to eat so please take 5 more bites for me.” Ryan said “you know what I’m leaving” and made to get up but Mike cut across him “freeze” he said in a stern voice “you will not move your little but from that chair until you have taken 5 more bits. Now I’m going to count to 3 and if I get there then I will feed you myself and if that happens you lose dessert for lunch and dinner now 1…” Ryan was shocked but obedience was something that came naturally to him so he picked up his fork and started to eat. Once he had eaten the required amount of food Mike said “thank you buddy I’ll be right back” He picked up both of their plates and walked away. He returned five minutes later with two pieces of chocolate cake. Mike set the cake down in front of Ryan and said “go ahead” Ryan ate his cake in silence feeling very much like a small child. When he couldn’t take it any more he looked up at Mike and said “I thought you said you weren’t going to be bossy” Mike chuckled and said “I don’t mean to be bossy but you have to eat, it’s not healthy not to and it worries me so please try to eat from now on because I certainly don’t want to go through this at every meal. Ryan was still slightly perturbed but also touched that Mike cared so much for him so he nodded. With that they both got up to go back to their room. Again Mike took Ryan’s hand Ryan opened his mouth to protest but thought better of it Mike really seemed to care about him and any way we realized that he kind of liked it so he said nothing but gave Mikes and a little squeeze which mike returned as they walked in silence.
When they got back to the dorm Mike unlocked the door Ryan was about to use the bathroom but Mike beat him to it. Ryan had to pee however this was okay he told himself he could wait Ryan sat down on his bed. 1 minute passed He needed to pee. Ryan got up and started to pace the room. Ryan really needed to pee he looked at his alarm clock could it really only have been 2 minutes? Ryan went to the bathroom door, this was bad he really, really had to pee. Ryan knocked on the door. He heard Mikes voice call out “just a second kiddo, I’ll be right out” Ryan knew he might not have a second, he used all of his energy to concentrate on not wetting his pants but it was too much, He was going to pee. Ryan had tears in his eyes as he attempted to hold his pee in. He needed to. He couldn’t take the embarrassment but... be also couldn’t hold it any more. Just as he thought all hope was lost the toilet flush and the bathroom door opened Ryan ran into the bathroom and closed the door. He managed to get his pants down just as he lost control; however the crisis was averted, besides for minor wetness in his underpants and a very small puddle on the floor Ryan managed to get every thing into the toilet. He pulled up is pants and cleaned the floor flushed the toilet and with a sigh of relief left the bathroom.
It was then that Ryan realized just how tired he was. What he wanted was to lay down and sleep for a while but the idea made him nervous. After what had just happened he wasn’t sure if he trusted himself not to wet the bed. However once out of the bathroom, Ryan noticed that Mike was lying on his bed, when Mike saw Ryan he said “I’m gonna take a nap for a while but do you want to go to the book store before dinner. Ryan said sure and decided to chance a nap…he was really tired.
Both Ryan and Mike slept for almost 2 hours Ryan woke up and was relieved to find himself dry, however he was again hit with a sudden intense urge to pee and he again managed to get to the bathroom just in time. He walked out of the bathroom to find Mike out of bed and putting his shoes on. Mike said “hey kiddo you want you want to go to the book store now”. Ryan said sure but was hit with a sudden realization Money, he had forgotten about money. Uncle Paul had forgotten to give him money and he had never thought to ask. Ryan was starting to panic he felt like crying but he needed to stay calm. In a voice far calmer then he felt he said, “I don’t have any money, my uncle forgot to give me any and well… I’ll have to call him.” Mike looked a bit surprised but responded “no he didn’t. I’m surprised that he didn’t tell you but your uncle was worried about giving you a large amount of money because this is your first time away from home so he gave it to me to hold for you and give out as needed.” It was Ryan’s turn to look surprised he asked you mean “you’re in charge of my money but…” Mike seeing the hurt in Ryan’s face stepped closer to him and pulled him into a hug. He said “look little one your uncle was just doing what he thought was best. He has given you a very generous allowance and placed it in my bank account whenever you need money just ask.” Ryan though for a moment “ask” he said “that means that you can say no” Mike pulled out of the hug and responded carefully “Yes… but I won’t… most of the time and if you want to overrule me you can always call your uncle, I have no problem with that. Look this may take some getting used to but I promise to make it as easy as possible” Again mike cupped Ryan’s cheek and asked “Okay”. Ryan didn’t like this but what choice did he have. He just nodded and tried to put this out of his mind. A minute later Ryan had put his shoes on and they were heading out the door. This time it was Ryan who slipped his hand into Mike’s without a conscious though. Holding Mikes hand although very juvenile was beginning to become routine for Ryan and it did make him feel very safe and protected.
Anyone who saw Mike and Ryan walking together holding hands never would have guessed that they were roommates or that Mike was in fact 9 months younger then his little roommate. Most people who saw them assumed that Mike was a big brother babysitting his younger sibling. Some however assumed that Mike was a man older then his years (this happened often due to his height and amount of body hair) who had had a son in his teens and that Ryan was his little boy (maybe 10 years old, 9 if he was tall like his daddy). As it would turn out the second way of thinking would prove to be more true.
Anyone who looked closely at the pair would see that the man had a huge smile on his face as though he had found the thing that he loved most in the world while the little boy wore a look to suggested that he may have been punished recently. For his part Ryan just assumed that everyone was too busy doing their own thing to pay attention to what he was doing. Mike on the other hand knew that people where noticing them and hoped that everyone saw a daddy with his little boy because in his heart that is how he felt, he couldn’t believe how much he already loved Ryan, From the moment he saw him Mike felt a spark of love of the little boy. Some might call it love at first sight, although it was not a romantic love he felt, it was more pure than that, it was more complete. It was the love a parent felt for his child upon seeing him for the first time. Ryan too recognized this feeling, but he was yet to name it. All he knew was that Mike was definitely, in control and despite what he had earlier said was definitely assigning him rules and despite the fact that his conscious mind told him he should be angry and fight back, a bigger part of his heart recognized that he felt safe and cared for.
When they got to the book store both quickly found their books although Ryan needed mikes help getting his books from high shelves and made their way to the cash register. Ryan gave his purchases to Mike who he knew would be paying and saw a candy bar that he wanted and added it to their purchase. Mike raised an eye brow and took it off the counter. He looked at Ryan and said, “We don’t need this we are about go to dinner where we will get dessert so please put this back” Ryan felt extremely embarrassed at being talked to in this manor but to avoid further incident he meekly nodded took the candy and placed it back in its assigned box. The cashier handed Mike their bags and as they walked away, Mike put his hand on Ryan’s shoulder and said “thank you for listening back there, it made things much easier. However Ryan was feeling miffed so this time as Mike went to take his hand Ryan pulled away and said “don’t”. Mike immediately stopped walking He turned to face Ryan and squatted down in front of him. He took a deep breath then said “ you do not pull away from me. We are about to go outside and its dark out. I don’t want to be separated. Now you will hold my hand at all times if not I can carry you but if it comes to that not only do you not get your dessert after dinner but when we get back to the room you will be going strait to bed. I just gave you a complement for listening and I expect good behavior understood little boy?” Ryan looked down in embarrassment as a few tears escaped his eyes. Mike saw this and gently brushed away Ryan’s tears he said “It’s okay buddy, I’m not mad but I need you to do as your told” In a final attempt to regain some dignity Ryan said in a barely audible voice “but you said earlier” however he was cut off Mike said rather gently “I was wrong earlier adults make mistakes too you know now are you going to be good or do I… Ryan cut him off in a desperate plea “I’ll be good” He now recognized after Mikes little speech that he was a little boy and Mike was the adult. Mike stroked his cheek and said “okay little one what do I expect?” Ryan immediately responded “listening and good behavior” Mike beamed at him and said “good boy” and to Ryan’s surprise he leaned in and gave him a kiss on the forehead before standing and once again taking Ryan’s hand this time without protest and they walked to the dinning hall.
When they got to the cafeteria Ryan was again attracted to the pizza Mike seeing this said we can eat pizza on Friday tonight we’re eating beef stir fry. Although this did not sound nearly a good as pizza Ryan recognized the clearly defined limit which had been set for him and chose to comply without complaint. At the drink station Mike gave Ryan a glass of milk but got himself a soda. This Ryan chose to comment on by saying “Oh can’t I have a soda” Mike simply responded “not tonight” Ryan stomped his foot a little and whined “but you got one”. Mike sensing a little tantrum coming on stepped closer to Ryan and said in a carrying whisper “I don’t speak whine and sometimes the rules are different for little boys and adults. I don’t want you drinking soda this close to bedtime but if your good tonight and tomorrow morning you may have a glass with lunch, besides as of right now you are still getting dessert which is more then enough sugar for little boys so close to bedtime”. Ryan recognizing the veiled threat and feeling that his dessert was in jeopardy chose to let the issue drop and accepted the glass of milk he was offered. As the walked to the table however Ryan still had a sulky look on his face which led Mike to comment “I think I have a tired little boy on my hands”
Ryan did not want to be put to bed early on his first night of college so he made an effort to turn his attitude around. He and Mike actually had a very enjoyable dinner talking about the classes they would have the day after tomorrow and things they still needed to get for the room. They make plans to go shopping the next day. Even when Ryan wanted to be done eating but Mike told him to take 3 more bite Ryan complied without a fuss. Because Ryan had shown perfect behavior at dinner he was given an ice cream Sunday for dessert which he devoured leaving quite a large amount of hot fudge on his face which Mike laughed at before he spat in his napkin and cleaned Ryan’s face.
Once they had both finished they got up and walked hand in hand back to their room. On the way Mike said to Ryan “when we get back to the room I’d like you to change into your jammies and get ready for bed please.” In a sulky voice Ryan responded “but I don’t want to go to bed.” Mike smiled and said “I said get ready for bed not go to bed and I told you earlier I don’t speak whine okay?” Ryan felt a bit better nodded.
One back in the room, Ryan collected his pajamas and went to the bathroom to change without being asked again he figured it was less embarrassing and made it feel more like his choice. Ryan changed, brushed his teeth and washed his face. He then emerged from the bathroom in pajama shorts, a t-shirt and bare feet. He felt slightly embarrassed that he was pajama clad while Mike as still dressed and wearing shoes even more embarrassed when he noticed that it was only 7:30 but took a breath and went to sit on his bed. Mike feeling that Ryan might need some encouragement went to sit beside him and said “thanks for being such a good boy I think we should call your uncle. Ryan then called his uncle and assured him that he was behaving for Mike. Uncle Paul then asked to talk to Mike who confirmed Ryan’s good boy status and assured Uncle Paul they would call in a couple of day. When the call ended, Mike asked Ryan “what should we do now?” Ryan knew right away what he wanted to do. He asked Mike “will you show me facebook I’ve never seen it and everyone talks about it. Mike though for a secant but agreed after warning Ryan that he was not allowed to make a profile or go on without his supervision. Facebook Mike explained could be dangerous. Ryan Agreed to these conditions and Mike went to get his laptop and open facebook so he could sign on without Ryan seeing is password. Mike then handed the computer to Ryan but sat next to him to supervise. Ryan loved it he looked up some people from high school and played some games. He was about to give the computer back when he accidentally stumbled across Mikes personal Information.
The thing that caught Ryan’s attention was Mike’s birthday, this couldn’t be true it said that Mike was 9 months younger then him, still 17. Ryan looked up in shock and asked “your 17” in a desperate voice. Mike sensing Ryan’s distress but not understanding it said “yah kiddo why” Ryan shuddered and started to splutter “but your sooo big and you keep telling we what to do like umm an adult but I’m older then you and you can’t I mean shouldn’t have to take care of me!” Mike who had been really worried for a minute laughed out laud in relief which just made Ryan cry. Mike knew that he needed to get control of the situation so he got up from the bed and stood in front of Ryan. He took Ryan’s face in his hands and said “Ry its okay I promise I am an adult, I have been for as long as I can remember and I’ve taken care of lots little boys my whole life. Ryan calmed down a little but was still in tears and choked out but I bet no one older then you. Mike thought for a second then responded “that’s true but age really doesn’t matter here buddy, you still have some growing up to do and I’m here to help you. Your uncle asked me to take care of you and I will. I promise you are safe with me. I’m here however you need for as long as you need and you wont always like me like when I make you eat or set a limit but remember I’m just doing it because I care okay and please don’t be embarrassed about our ages. We all grow at different speeds”. Ryan nodded and was able to calm down.
After this Ryan and Mike watched some television around 8 00 Mike had noticed this and said “bedtime kiddo” Although he was tired Ryan didn’t want to go to bed he huffed and said “but I don’t want to go to bed and your not even in pajamas yet. Mike who had seen this coming was ready he sat down on Ryan’s bed and said “Let me remind you of a few things first I don’t speak whine, second little boys and adults have different rules and third when I tell you to do something I expect you to obey me like a good little boy okay?” Ryan sadly nodded so Mike said in a more cheerful voice “okay why don’t you go to the bathroom then we’ll get you tucked in”. Ryan did as he was told then returned to find Mike standing next to his bed with his covers turned down. Mike patted the bed and said “come on bud time to snuggle down” Ryan walked over to his bed and hopped in he allowed Mike to fix his covers as he lay down. Ryan rolled on to his tummy so he was facing Mike. Mike adjusted his covers one last time then stroked Ryan’s head as he said “good night buddy, sleep tight and thank you for being such a good boy today. I’ll be right here if you need me” before he walked away Mike bent down and place a gentle kiss on Ryan’s forehead noting that his little one already almost asleep. Mike turned out the lights before sitting down at the computer and eventually going to sleep around midnight.
Ryan was awakened at 2am by wind and rain pounding against the window and lightning outside. He as scared but to his horror he realized that he had wet the bed in his sleep and not just a little, he and his bed were soaked. Between the scary storm and his wet bet Ryan felt completely overwhelmed and started to cry
It took several deep breaths for Ryan to get himself under control and stop crying. He had a plan he would be very quiet. He’d changes his pajamas and get a towel and cover the wet bed with that. He could change his bedding in the morning but above all he did not want to wake Mike up, this was embarrassing enough. However, this plan had a fatal flaw Ryan slowly and quietly creped out of bed with no problem, however as Ryan opened his pajama draw it squeaked. This drew a response from Mike. He sat up in bed looked around, he spotted Ryan and in a sleepy and irritated voice asked “Ryan why are you out of bed!!” Ryan hesitated for a moment, this was bad. He found his voice and said “I’m just going to the bathroom, go back to sleep, I’m fine”. Mike however was not satisfied with this answer, he frowned in confusion and said, “you were not going to the bathroom you were going through you drew now please tell me what you were doing”. Ryan could feel heat rise in is face and his stomach muscles clench. He shook as he sobbed out “nnothing I’mmmm fffffine”. Mike seeing Ryan’s distress got out of bed and walked over to where Ryan stood as he approached, Ryan made to back away but backed into the wall Jumped and began to sob even lauder.
Mike slowly approached Ryan so he would not scare him any further. As he got closer to Him he asked “Ryan what’s happening? Please talk to me” then taking in Ryan’s appearance he made the realization and said in a much softer voice “oh baby, did you wet the bed?” Ryan nodded brokenly and sobbed out “I’m soooo sorry” Mike immediately took Ryan in his arms and said “Its okay baby I’ll take care of this lets go to the bathroom”. Ryan was too tired and sad to resist.
He allowed Mike to lead him into the bathroom. Once in there Mike started the water in the tub then turned to Ryan. He gave him a reassuring smile and said “okay love I’m going to take off your shirt raise your arms for me”. Ryan did as he was asked and Mike lifted his wet shirt over his head. Mike then said “okay baby now for shorts. Just lift you little feet for me, there’s a good boy” Once Ryan was completely naked Mike put one hand on his shoulder and used the other to clasp his Ryan’s smaller hand Mike stared Ryan toward the bath and said “Okay sweetheart in you get” Ryan still shaking stepped into the tub and sat down in the warm water.
Mike picked up the soap and washcloth and started to calmly wash Ryan’s face and neck. Ryan who had stopped crying and was starting to calm down was now focusing on avoiding further embarrassment. He reached out his hand and I can wash myself. Mike just smiled and said “I’m sure you can but I’m going to so please move your hands baby”. Ryan meekly complied as Mike washed his back, tummy, armpits and arms. Mike then turned his attention to the lower part of Ryan’s body. Mike started with Ryan’s feet. As he washed between Ryan’s toes Ryan couldn’t help but giggle. Mike smiled and asked “Ticklish baby?” Ryan nodded and Mike filed this information away for later and proceeded to wash Ryan’s legs and knees. Then they reached the most intimate part of the bath Ryan’s privates Ryan opened his mouth to say he could do it but before he could Mike put his finger to his lips and said shhh baby I’ve got you Ryan nodded in resignation as Mike proceeded to wash his peepee and bum. Once that was complete Mike drained the tub and told Ryan to sit tight and not stand. He left the bathroom and came back with one of his own t-shirts. Mike helped Ryan to stand then dried him completely.
Once he was dry Mike put his t-shirt over Ryan’s head. This shirt had a picture of Mickey Mouse on it and fell below Ryan’s knees. Mike smiled and said “this shirt a bit small for me but I figured you could use it as a nightie, you look adorable!” When Ryan just nodded, Mike said “come on baby lets get you back to bed”. To Ryan’s surprise Mike reached out and picked him up. Mike placed him on his hip and carried him out of the bathroom. Ryan was shocked when Mike carried him not to his bed but to Mike’s.
Mike understanding Ryan’s confusion simply said, its pretty laud and scary outside right now and so I think it would be better if you slept in my bed, besides I don’t really feel like changing sheets right now”. Ryan just nodded he had to admit that the storm did scare him. Mike settled them both into bed with Ryan using his chest as a pillow. Ryan now feeling completely embarrassed said “I’m so sorry, it was just the storm and being in a new place”. Mike said in a reassuring whisper “sweetheart its okay, you have nothing to apologize for. Sleep baby! We’ll figure things out in the morning”. Ryan didn’t know what Mike meant by “figure things out” but he figured he would drop it for now but, there was one concern Ryan couldn’t escape. He had to ask… In a small embarrassed voice Ryan asked “but what if I wet again?” Mike held Ryan a little closer and said “don’t worry about that, I’m the adult here, so it’s my problem. I’ll take care of everything but I really don’t think it will be a problem okay love”. Ryan nodded into Mike’s chest and closed his eyes. Before closing his own eyes Mike said “goodnight again sweetheart, I’ll see you in the morning”. Just before he fell to sleep Ryan snuggled deeper into Mike’s chest and with out realizing what he was saying, said “goodnight Daddy”. Mike however was very aware of what Ryan said. He couldn’t help by smile. He gave him a little kiss and tightened his hold around his little boy as he drifted to sleep.
When Ryan awoke the next morning he was confused, He was sleeping on something soft and warm and felt as though he was being hugged. It took him a moment to remember the night before and when he did he really just wanted to forget. He closed his eyes so he could go back to sleep if only to avoid facing this situation for a little while longer. But just then he felt gentle fingers carding through his hair and Mike asked in a soft voice “You awake baby? We need to get up soon we have a lot to do today” Ryan wanted to protest at Mike’s chosen term of endearment but he realized that after the events of the night before he didn’t have a leg to stand on so he settled for mumbling “don’t want to get up” Mike chuckled and said “Okay we can have a few more minutes of cuddle time but then we have to get moving little one” Ryan snuggled more deeply into Mike as Mike reached under Ryan’s shirt moving past his naked bum and proceeded to rub Ryans shoulders and back. Ryan once again closed his eyes and basked in this feeling. He had missed cuddle time.
About 20 minutes later Ryan felt Mike remove his hand from Ryan’s back and with a little tap to his uncovered bum said “I’m going to shower, you stay here all nice and tucked in until I get out okay baby” Ryan just nodded in response as Mike removed himself from the bed and placed a pillow under Ryans displaced head. About 15 minutes later Mike emerged from the bathroom to find Ryans eyes closed. He walked over to the bed and gently stroked Ryans cheek and said “sorry angel but it’s time to get up now” Ryan knew that he had to obey so he opened his eyes, pulled back the covers and hopped out of the warm bed.
Once out of bed Mike said “well good morning love, why don’t you go get in the shower”. Ryan for a reason unknown to himself felt the need to point out “but I had a bath last night”. Mike said in a gentle but firm tone “that’s true but we did not wash your hair so you still need to shower now please be a good boy for me and get going. Do you need any help?” Ryan declined Mike’s offer for assistance and was about to head into the bathroom when Mike stopped him. Mike pulled at Ryan’s night shirt and said lets get this off so it doesn’t get wet. On instinct Ryan raised his arms so Mike could slide the shirt over his head. Ryan then realizing that he was completely naked made to cover his private parts. Mike just chuckled and said “relax baby it’s nothing I haven’t seen before, in fact it’s nothing I haven’t bathed before”. Seeing the truth in this statement Ryan relaxed and headed for the bathroom.
In the bathroom, Ryan quickly brushed his teeth he then showered. He stepped out of the bathtub only to realize that he had forgotten to bring clothes in with him. So he dried himself then proceeded to exit the bathroom in just a towel. When he entered the dorm room Ryan found that Mike had laid out an outfit for him to wear. Mike looked up from his computer when he heard Ryan emerge and said “I noticed that you forgot clothes so I figured I’d help you out. Ryan walked over to the clothing and shrugged the outfit was fine so he dropped his towel and proceeded to get dressed. Ryan sat down on the bed to put his socks on but Mike stood up and said “let me help you baby. He first put on each of Ryans socks on for him then his shoes which he proceeded to tie. Ryan was about to hop down when Mike said “one more thing” he grabbed a towel and proceeded to dry Ryans hair more thoroughly and in a slightly admonishing tone said “you need to dry your hair better baby” Once Mike was satisfied with the state of Ryan’s hair Mike allowed him to stand up. They were on their way out the door when Mike said “grab your jacket before we go” Ryan said “It’s not cold out beside you don’t have one” Mike just looked at him and said “different rules baby now please do as I say” Ryan just nodded, He ran back, picked up his jacket and rejoined Mike who said “good boy” and took his hand as they headed for breakfast.
