Felix came home rather later than expected, even for a night when he and Shannon had separate plans. He doubted very much that he could escape the fate of meeting a very annoyed Teverius waiting expectantly for him at the apartment, even if he was hale and whole.

He wasn't. His mouth had mostly stopped bleeding, at last, but his handkerchief looked like a horror film prop, and a steady blue-purple-green blotch was forming at the left corner of his mouth. It was starting to hurt through the numbing effect of the drinks he'd had. Felix had strolled through the building with blood on his shirt and a decidedly ugly injury to his face, and if his neighbors and the staff could deal with it, then he was certain Shannon could do, as well.

He hoped.

Felix dabbed at the corner of his lips once more with the handkerchief as he unlocked the front door and stepped inside. "Shannon?" he called, a bit lopsidedly, but hopeful. "Are you home?"

Shannon was just getting dressed after a shower when he heard the front door open. Loose satin pants rested low on his hips, and his hair hung around his shoulders in damp waves. He forgo his shirt and headed for the living room, wondering what sort of excuse Felix would have this time.

Shannon could tell Felix was drunk. He would have been shocked if his lover hadn't been intoxicated after coming home at this hour. The bruise was a surprise, but as it wasn't a serious injury it only added fuel to the fire of his annoyance. So far his temper was help in check, but that was only so he could hear the explanation he would soon be ripping apart.

He looked at Felix expectantly and asked, "Well?"

One golden brow rose in a perfect arch. "And you took it upon yourself to prove him wrong?" he asked.

It was an unfair question. Shannon had never hidden his sexuality from anyone. Though he wasn't the type to wear flags or join in a parade, he wouldn't sit buy and listen to prejudice when it was thrown in his face.

Unfortunately for Felix, he didn't feel like being fair just then.

"I can see that," Shannon said as he followed Felix into the kitchen.

"If the fight was such a quick encounter, how come you're home so late?"

Shannon's mood darkened even further. "I didn't think that was a potential concern," he said, his voice gaining a dangerous edge.

"You haven't exactly ruled it out as a possibility," Shannon pointed out. The last time they discussed the topic Felix had been very adamant about seeing other people. Shannon had tried his best to show Felix that he didn't need to seek intimacy elsewhere, but he couldn't be sure Felix agreed.

Why didn't you tell me? A brief flicker of pain softened Shannon's gaze, but it was gone before it could register on his face fully. No matter that Felix had said he was still Shannon's when they had agreed to those terms, it didn't stop the fear that Felix would change his mind. Shannon used to be so confident that he would never lose Felix to anything or anyone, but that was before he'd learned of what Felix had been missing. He'd tried so hard to fill those gaps, but he never knew if he'd succeeded.

"You're still home late," Shannon said, but the danger had passed.

Shannon stepped forward and gently removed the ice from Felix's face. The bruise around Felix's mouth was ugly and did not belong on his lover's pale skin. Shannon's eyes narrowed as if to scare the injury away by glare alone. He brushed a feather light touch over Felix's lips.

"Was it worth not being able to kiss me?" he asked, his voice soft.

"You would deprive me of a quarter of your mouth?" Shannon asked. He raised his gaze to Felix's mismatched eyes. There was a hint of steel in it as he added, "When I kiss you, I want all of it."

shannonteverius: (Beautiful)
Shannon pressed his body against Felix's, forgetting the dried blood on Felix's shirt. "My devoted lover would kiss me despite the pain," he said, as he slid his arms around Felix's neck. "He wouldn't be able to resist."

Shannon didn't want to hurt Felix more than necessary. He tilted his head toward the uninjured side of Felix's face and let his lover lead.

A shudder ran though Shannon's body, which was only partially due to Felix's cold touch. His instincts wanted to pull Felix closer and deepen the kiss. Reminding himself of Felix's injury, he resisted, remaining pliant to Felix's ministrations.

Shannon's body softened against Felix's. He parted his lips, teasing Felix's mouth with the tip of his tongue.
