Very sweet (short) story of sexual discovery and finding the courage to take a risk on true love. Jonah has been in love with his older brother's best friend Laurie since he was 13, but he's afraid Laurie only sees him as a tag-along kid and not a man. To change that, he devises a plan to open up Laurie's eyes. He tells him he had an ex who dumped him for "not putting out", and tells Laurie he wants him to be the one to take his virginity. His reasoning being that since he trusts him to show him the ropes and not embarrass him, that he'll be ready for college exploits. Of course, its all about being with Laurie. What he doesn't know is that Laurie has been attracted to him as well, and has not gone there out of respect for Jonah's brother. This proposition changes things. Needless to say, Marc, Jonah's brother, figures out something's up, Laurie comes clean and Marc gives his blessing. So, Laurie accepts Jonah's offer.

The rest just needs to be read. I loved both men, Jonah and Laurie, and their story from beginning to end was truly heartwarming. Definitely recommend!
