Sometimes You Just KnowSeattle, WA –- It was like that when I met Derek. The first time I saw him walking past registration at Inferno XXXV I knew I had to pursue him. The first time we played I knew we shared something special. And the first time he came to visit me in Seattle I knew he'd be my boy. I had no idea just how deep our relationship would become or the amount of growth it would foster in both of us, but I knew my life wouldn't be the same again. I'm pretty sure Derek would be the first to admit that when he accepted my collar back in May of 2007 he didn't really know what all it entailed but I can say it has become everything I could have hoped for in a D/s relationship.

Five years before collaring Derek I had collared another boy, Chris. He was my first. I knew then, too. I knew the connection I had with that boy would last a lifetime. Even when he asked to be un-collared and released four years ago, I knew it wasn't over. Perhaps it was a stubborn refusal not to accept the fact that he was no longer part of my life or the undeniable feelings that remained with me through each day of those four years he spent on his own journey, but I knew our paths would eventually cross again. As I wrote back in December, Chris (see Shin Aleph Hey) did come back into my life. We spent some of the holidays together and while I would like to phase what has happened as a rekindling of the passion we had shared, it has been more like a return to something that was never really lost. It has been as though the past four years was little more than brief period of absence. On Sunday Chris asked if I would ever consider collaring him again. I told him the collar was his for the asking and it was once again locked around his neck shortly after. My Vancouver boy is back in the fold.

Sometimes You Just Know (Bonus)And it seems I might have finally found myself a boy here in Seattle, too. After more than a year of searching for a local boy and nearly giving up on the prospect, I met Tim (see Blueeyes). We've had several play sessions and have spent even more time talking. Through this time together I have become convinced that my premonition about this relationship developing quickly and while I continue to be cautious, it has become clear it's worth pursuing. On the same day I re-collared Chris, I offered a collar of consideration to Tim. We are now at the beginning of a one month trial period that may extend through a second and provide an opportunity for all three of the boys to spend some time together during Washington Leather Pride Week.

I doubt I have to tell you how much I'm looking forward to that occasion. I'm certain the play party that weekend will be a fuck load of fun.
