The pair of friends took longer to return to then they expected. The sun had nearly set by the time they walked back into the vacation home. Sitting in the living room where Soul and BlackStar, shouting loudly at a football game that played on a large screen; a half eaten pizza sat in front of them.
"You guys ordered pizza?! We were getting stuff to cook." Maka sighed, placing the bags in the kitchen.
"BlackStar was starving, so Kid thought it best to just have something delivered." Tsubaki replied in a sweet tone.
"Can't keep a big star waiting!" The aforementioned meister boasted, followed quickly by a string of curses at the referee of the game.
With a light chuckle Crona proceeded to put away the groceries, stating that they had a whole week and surely they would have time for a cook out. He enjoyed having a house full of friends and laughter. It was a welcome change from the loneliness that once filled his life. The 'gang' was his new family. The old one was just a faint memory at this point.
"What 'cha thinking about?" Liz asked, leaning against the bar that separated the kitchen from the living room. The response from the demon sword was a simple raised eyebrow. "It must be a pretty good thought. Considering I can see every tooth in that smile of yours."
"O-oh." He studdered, placing the last of the things in the cabinet. "J-just thinking about....the beach. And how nice the water looked today."
"Don't lie to the girl!" Ragnarok popped out of Crona's shoulder. "You were comparing your old life to this new, crummy one."
"N-no I wasn't. Go away Ragnarok!"
"Yes you were. You were all 'Oh I loooove having friends. They make my life sooooo great.' Blah blah blah."
"Sheesh. To gushy for my taste." The weapon crossed his arms. "Old life was better. I used to be cool! Now I'm just a....a....plushie!" He sobbed before returning to his dormant state.
"So-sorry about that." Crona chuckled nervously.
"No problem. We like having you here." Liz assured with a smile. "A nice addition to our group of misfits." A roar of laughter filled the lowest level of the house as if to accompany the statement. "Kid went upstairs a few minutes before you came home. Patty was with him. You might want to go check on them."
Kid? Alone with Patty? Well it wasn't that unusual. Before Crona started living in the manor she used to have room there. She still does, but never uses it. Liz and Patty got an apartment together in the city to 'give the lovebirds space'. But since then the meister and his weapon haven't spent much time together alone.
Crona swallowed hard as he came to the last stair before the third floor landing. They're just talking...or....something he thought to himself. Just because Patty is a girl, that's no reason to be so nervous. Kid would never..... Laughter drifted from the closed door in front of him, followed by the faint sounds of Patty talking. It was hard to make out, but Crona was sure he heard the weapon say his beloved's name.
"Pipe down Patty. Someone will hear you." No mistaking...that was Kid talking.
Another hard swallow and Crona opened the door. Slowly at first, then suddenly once his eyes took in the scene. "Having fun you two?" He asked, leaning against the door.
"Shhh. You might wake her!" Kid replied in a hushed tone. "It took me nearly an hour to get her to sleep."
Crona giggled as he made his way to his shinigami's side. "I have to say, this isn't what I expected to see in my bedroom. My lover with a girl in his lap."
"She's probably drooling on my leg." Kid cringed. "She's a drooler." Crona gigled again. "How was the shopping?"
"Fun. It's been so long since Maka and I spent time together. It was refreshing."
"No...that's my giraffe!" Patty murmured as she rolled onto her side.
"You two should schedule a day to go into the city. Go to the spa or something."
Kid was always thinking of Crona, of ways to make him happy even when they were apart. It simultaneously filled Crona's heart and broke it, knowing that Kid was fine with their separation. "I'll ask her." He replied a little down heartened.
"Give that back!" Patty punched Kid in the stomach. "My cupcake!"
A slight knock on the door drew the pair's attention (well the attention Kid wasn't giving to his swelling midsection). Liz came to take Patty to her room, something Kid welcomed. Before leaving with her sister Liz asked if they would be coming downstairs any time soon to which Kid replied a quick no, he was much to tired to entertain 'those two idiots' any longer.
Once alone for the first time since they arrived Kid laid his head on Crona's lap. "This isn't what I had in mind when I asked you to go away with me."
"I don't mind. Honestly." The demonsword rain his fingers through Kid's raven locks. "I enjoy having our friends with us."
"But I wanted to have a nice, relaxing vacation with just you and I. Not every Tom, Dick and Harry from Death City."
Crona didn't quite know what Kid was getting at; Tom and Harry were still in Death City, and he didn't know who Dick was. "Well they are here now. So we have to make the best of it."
"You are far more patient and understanding than I am." He smiled up at his lover, touching the others cheek gently. "Even in this light you're eyes are simply beautiful."
"It's to dark, you can't see them."
"Yes I can. They are robin's egg blue and in the moonlight they shine like sapphires."
"Is it working?" Kid winked.
"Of course." Crona bent over and gave his lover a quick kiss before standing (knocking Kid over in the process) and heading to the closet to find something to wear to bed. Kid had already unpacked and hung all their clothes with care. One thing the shinigami could always be counted on to do was keep things neat and orderly. Deciding on an over-sized shirt, the demonsword redressed quickly and returned to bed. Kid was still there, now laying on his stomach and breathing as though he were already asleep. "You work to hard sometimes." Crona whispered, climbing onto Kid's back and resting his head on the others. "Take it easy, will ya?" Kid wiggled a bit, causing Crona to laugh. "I thought you were sleeping."
"I am." Kid replied with a snore.
"So I'm talking to myself?"
"Meany." Crona kissed the back of Kid's neck before moving to lay beside him. "Shinigami should act like gentlemen, not like meanies."
"I'm sorry, love." Kid wrapped his arms around his lover and nuzzled into the nape of his neck. "A gentleman I shall be." He nuzzled a second time before kissing him lovingly.
"Well....not to gentle."
"I see." A quick nip punctuated the short sentence. Another kiss, followed by another and then another. Soft moans were elicited from the pink haired boy. "Am I being to gentlemanly still?"
Kid's hands wandered underneath Crona's shirt, first dancing over his upper thighs before resting on the boy's lower abs. Kisses were trailed down his lovers neck, over his shoulder then finally to his lips. More moans filled the room, albeit soft ones as Crona didn't want their friends to hear them. Rolling onto his back Crona reached up and placed a hand on the back of Kid's head, pulling him into a deep kiss.
Shirt hiked up to nearly the demonsword's chest Kid continued to dance his fingers on the boys abs, tracing each contour and marveling in the softness that always enticed him. Three years together and it always elicited the same response.
Moving from his lovers lips Kid traveled down the boys neck again, getting on top of him after coaxing his legs apart. Fitting between them with ease the shinigami, now on the other side of the pile of shirt that lined Crona's neck, teased each of Crona's nipples with his tongue.
"K-kid." Crona breathed deeply. "Mm...nnnn." Another tease and the demonsword cried out.
"Shh my love. Don't want to draw to much attention." But he repeated the action, smiling to himself. The others were downstairs, there was no way they could hear what was going on. Or at least that's what Kid believed. Traveling farther and farther down Kid kissed a trail to Crona's boxers, moaning the entire way. Stopping only for a moment to run a finger down Crona's member, Kid smiled as he saw the look of anticipation on his lovers face. Returning to kiss the lips of his beloved he took Crona into his hand and pumped him gently.
"Mmmnnnn" Crona responded to the actions he was receiving. It had been so long since they spent a night together he had forgotten just how nimble Kid's fingers were or how they memorized all the curves of his body. "Kid" he breathed into the shinigami's ear before nibbling on the lobe. The room was spinning and he was lost in a cloud of lust, and it sounded like his heart was pounding in his ears. But wait...that wasn't his heart....was that...?
"Hold on a sec." Kid stopped abruptly, listening for what he thought sounded like a bang on their door. A minute later and it seemed like whatever caused the sound had passed. "Thought I heard something." And with that Kid went back to the demonswords neck.
"What's up bitches!" Soul screamed, busting the door wide open. "Whoa....get it Kid!"
"SOUL!" Crona screamed in return, pushing Kid off of him and pulling the blankets up and over his head. "GET OUT!"
