Part 42 - Third Stage
The morning came too soon to Heero's opinion. He still felt so relaxed
and happy from the treat he'd gotten yesterday that he didn't want to
move, afraid of dispelling the blissful feeling he had. With half his
mind still in dreamland, he was slow in registering that his body was
being penetrated. When he did realize it, Heero mewled in protest, not
wanting to wake up fully. He could hear his Master chuckle and felt
the long haired Dom thrust swiftly to the hilt into him. That woke
Heero up completely. He managed to let out a squeak before burying his
head in the pillow, holding on as his Master rode him roughly.
Noticing the unleashed passion and possessiveness he was being ridden
with at the moment, Heero had a premonition that his Master would use
him as often as he could today. As much as he loved having his Master
inside him, Heero still prayed that his ass would survive the
One hour later after being ridden once again in the shower, Heero was
clean and dressed in his Kitten costume once again. He was staring at
his Master who had come out of the bathroom in different clothes.
Today Duo was wearing a tanktop and black knee-length pants. The
tanktop design was very similar to the one Heero used to wear but it
was deep purple instead of moss green. The clothes, aided by a pair of
beach sandals, gave his Master a completely different image from the
usual. Heero could only stare as his Master stopped in front of him
and gave him a jovial grin. It was a grin Heero used to see on 'Duo
Maxwell the teenage Joker' not 'Duo Maxwell the Master'.
"Master?" Heero asked tentatively, feeling as if he was dealing with a
different kind of Duo at the moment.
Duo raised his eyebrows in response and looked amused at the same
time. "What, Kitten?"
"Uhm...." The words betrayed him so Heero did only what he could do at
the moment. He kept staring.
His Master chuckled knowingly and bent forward to kiss the baffled
slave. "I look different in this getup?" Duo asked when they parted
Still speechless, Heero nodded.
Duo chuckled again. "I'm still your Master, Kitten. I just refuse to
wear a thick leather costume in this hot weather. Today is Animal day
where the Doms are supposed to play with their pets. I want to relax
and enjoy playing with my beloved pet. We are on the beach for God's
sake. I want to enjoy the sunny beach with my pet and not sweat
buckets just to display my Dom image."
Heero blinked at the information. His mind stumbled slightly on the
'beloved' word before it continued processing the rest of his Master's
words. He turned his head to the side and looked out through the
window. The sun was shining in a clear blue sky, making the sea
sparkle. It did look hot outside. Heero glanced down at his leather
costume and suddenly felt like sweating. He looked up at his Master.
"If you aren't wearing the costume, why should I?"
Duo's grin was positively wicked this time. Heero felt both relieved
and worried. Relieved because it was the 'Duo the Master' grin and
worried because that grin never bode well for him.
"I could say it's because we have a contest to participate in," Duo's
grin got wider. "But the truth is because I like looking at my slave
in his costume, Kitten."
Heero wondered if he was allowed to scowl. It was not fair that he
still had to wear the costume. True, the costume barely covered his
body but the boots were a different matter. He wanted to wear sandals
like his Master was.
Somehow, his face must have shown his displeasure because his Master
tapped his nose. "Don't sulk, Kitten."
"I'm not sulking," Heero protested.
"Good." Heero felt his chin grabbed and his Master's face turned
serious. "I want you in deep submission today. You are not to utter
any words. Hiss or mew if you need to express your feelings. You will
walk slightly behind me and get on your fours whenever I stop. Today,
you are truly a pet; a kitten and you will act like one. Understand?"
Heero nodded then hesitated before asking. "What if I need to tell you
something about the mission, Master?"
Duo looked thoughtful for a few seconds. "You do what a cat usually
does. You mew and rub my leg if I'm standing or jump into my lap if
I'm sitting. I'll draw your head near my ear so you can whisper the
words to me."
"Any other questions?" Duo asked him.
Heero shook his head. He then lowered his body to his fours, falling
into deep submission and looked up at his Master. A blinding smile was
his reward as his Master knelt in front of him and ruffled his hair.
"My beautiful Kitten," Duo murmured fondly. He kissed his slave
passionately before standing up and smiled down at his pet. "C'mon,
let's have a breakfast then we can play on the beach."
Heero followed after his Master. He felt happy and vowed to be on his
best behavior. He would like to get such blinding smiles and loving
expressions again from his Master.
Heero pressed his lips shut. His body shook as he tried hard not to
snicker. He was in deep submission mode. He was a kitten! And a kitten
didn't snicker. But the sight of Wufei standing next to Dorothy in his
animal costume made it very difficult to hold back his snicker.
Wufei was clad in one piece of silk clothing. The style was similar to
those of the ancient Chinese robe. Long wide sleeves and ankle length
robe, split behind to allow easier movement. There was no waistband
but it wasn't necessary to accentuate his narrow waist. The robe had
obviously been tailored especially for Wufei and the silk texture
helped the robe in molding to his figure in all the correct places. If
it had been merely the shape of the garment, Heero would never have
figured out what animal Wufei was supposed to be. It was the color
which gave Wufei away. The sleeves were black and so was the back of
the robe. It was the opposite to Wufei's front, which was white.
Wufei's unbound, raven hair reached his shoulders, making his head and
the back of his robe appear to be one black surface. Finished with an
orange neckline and black, soft looking boots, Heero had no doubt now
what animal Wufei was.
There were two extended black triangle pieces, each one extended from
Wufei's front, outside sleeves. They covered Wufei's palms so if he
was to stand with his arms at his side, his hands were totally hidden
beneath what looked like penguin's flippers.
Wufei the Penguin.
Heero felt laughter bubble up inside him. He quickly swallowed and
bowed down, trying to think something that would take his mind off an
image of Wufei waddling through snow colored sand.
Duo, his lucky Master, didn't have the same reservation. The long
haired Dom howled in mirth a second after they arrived at the beach
and saw Dorothy relaxing with her slave near her. Heero glanced up and
saw Wufei glaring at his Master. At first he wondered why the Chinese
Preventer didn't say anything or at least rant at Duo, but then he
realized that Wufei was also in deep submission mode; as was he. If
Dorothy had put a beak on Wufei, Heero was sure that Wufei would have
used it to peck Heero's Master.
"Nice costume your slave has there, Lady." Duo said after his laughter
ebbed. He tugged at the beach towel Heero had carried as per his
order. "Mind if we join you here?"
Dorothy smiled at the long haired Dom in greeting. She was reclining
on her own beach towel and clad in a white bikini swimsuit. "Be my
guest. As much as I like Drake in his Dragon costume, I can't enjoy a
dragon pet on a beach like this." Her eyes shot to her slave and she
grinned widely. "This current costume is much better and suits this
occasion. It also symbolizes a servant at the same time."
"Very clever," Duo grinned in return. He threw his beach towel next to
Dorothy and sat down on it.
"Aren't I always?" Dorothy winked then waved to Wufei. "Put the
sunblock cream on me, Drake."
Heero knelt down next to his Master and watched Wufei tend to his
Mistress. The Chinese Preventer's costume was made from thin silk so
Wufei wouldn't feel hot in this kind of weather. It was so thin that
Heero could vaguely see Wufei's nipples beneath the silk. Heero might
have found it funny to see their fellow ex Gundam pilot in this
costume but he was also aware that to anyone else, Wufei still looked
Heero turned his head to look at his Master. Duo had sat up and spread
his legs. He patted the space between his legs meaningfully. "Come
here, I want to play with my pet."
Heero caught Wufei's curious glance as he settled between his Master's
open legs. So it seemed he wasn't the only one who was curious of how
his fellow Preventer interacted with their respective Dom.
Duo put one hand on his slave's head, guiding it to rest on his right
thigh and used the other hand to rearrange Heero's body to his liking.
Heero ended up curled on his side, facing his Master. The position
enabled his Master to touch whatever body part he wanted. His back was
to Wufei and Dorothy so he couldn't see the Chinese sub's expression
when Duo started petting him. Heero wiggled as his Master's hands
roamed over his torso. He mewled softly at the sensual touches and
swung his tail back and forth, acting like the cat he was supposed to
"Nice tail," Dorothy commented to Duo. "Does your pet have the control
in moving it or do you control its movement by remote?"
"It's his tail." Duo's voice was full of amusement. "He moves it with
his own will. You see the rapid swings it makes? That means he's
"Really?" Dorothy's laughter rang behind him. Heero couldn't help but
blush at his Master's blatant explanation. Why couldn't Duo have said
he was happy instead of horny? Heero wanted to say, but since he was
in deep submission mode, he settled for glaring up at his Master. The
said Master grinned down in response, unabashed. Annoyed, Heero
relaxed the muscle around his tail then squeezed hard, feeling
satisfied when his tail hit Duo's lower leg.
"And that indicates that he was displeased with me." Duo stated,
amusement was obvious in his tone. His fore fingers slipped into his
slave's nipple rings and tugged the pierced flesh playfully.
Heero moaned in pleasure, annoyance forgotten as his Master played
with his nipples.
"Very nice tail." Dorothy chuckled. "Can you make one for my Drake as
Heero vaguely heard Wufei choke in response.
Duo replied, still amused, "What makes you think I created it?"
"Come on, GoD," Dorothy scorned playfully. "I would know about such a
toy if it's sold in the stores. I also know you're a talented
mechanic. It wouldn't be hard for you to construct such an appendage."
Duo chuckled and ceased his torment of his pet's nipples. He put one
hand behind him while the other caressed his slave's hair. "Dragons
don't have tails like my pet does and neither does a penguin."
"I can always turn him into a dog," Dorothy countered. "Stop stalling,
will you make one for Drake or not?"
"I'll think about it," Duo said then continued in a low tone. "Serpent
From his position, Heero could see the contest's sponsor approaching
them. The Dom was clad in black. He was wearing a short-sleeved silk
shirt with the three top buttons undone and cotton trousers. Brat was
right behind the raven haired Dom. His animal costume consisted of one
piece of black spandex which hugged his body from neck to fingers and
toes. A black tail, which was similar to Heero's, swung behind the
green eyed slave as he followed his Master. As he came closer, Heero
could make out a pair of small black, catlike ears protruding from the
boy's messy hair.
Souver stopped once he was close enough and addressed Dorothy and Duo.
"Are you having a good time here?"
"Of course, it's a lovely place." Dorothy answered. "Would you like to
"I'll be glad to." Souver put down a small mat and sat down on it.
"Nice costume your slave has there, Serpent." Duo commented.
"Yours too," Souver returned.
"I thought sponsors didn't join in the contest," Dorothy spoke up.
"We don't, but we decided to follow the contest theme though," Souver
explained. "Mainly to show off our slaves and their fabulous
Duo grinned back while Dorothy chuckled in understanding.
While the Doms conversed, Heero watched Brat kneel down next to
Souver. His movement was as graceful as the panther his costume
indicated. Brat caught Heero's eyes and smiled at him. Heero awkwardly
smiled back. He wasn't used to smiling at anyone other than his
Master. Thankfully Brat didn't seem offended with his vague response.
The black haired sub leaned his head against Souver's leg and nuzzled
it. Souver's hand came down and caressed Brat's hair while the Dom
kept talking with Duo and Dorothy.
Although Souver looked like a mean Master, Heero liked watching him
and Brat. They were a fine pair of Master and slave. He hoped Souver
wasn't the Snake they were looking for. His behavior toward his slave
didn't suit the profile of the Snake he had constructed while reading
Ross' interrogation report. He had concluded that Snake was not a kind
Master, judging from Ross' violent and terrified response. If Souver
were Snake, Heero didn't think he would treat Brat as tender he was
"Serpent!" The shout came from Dorothy's direction whom Heero's back
was turned to so he couldn't see who had called the raven haired Dom.
He heard two pairs of feet shuffling through the sand though.
Souver's head turned toward the voice and he waved slightly. "Good
Septus, another one of the contest sponsors. Heero was pleased. This
could be a good chance for them to extract information from the two
sponsors without them knowing.
Heero heard Duo and Dorothy greet Septus. He tried to turn his head to
see Septus and his slave but it was difficult with Duo's hand petting
his hair. In the end, he stayed where he was.
"I brought a beach ball with me," Septus spoke. "I wonder if you will
allow your pets to play with mine."
"That's a wonderful idea." Dorothy replied. "Drake, you play."
"Hmm four sexy pets chasing a ball. It would be a nice show, I'm
sure." Duo tapped Heero's nose. "Go join Drake and Storm, Kitten."
Souver also gave a similar order to Brat while Heero straightened and
turned his head to see Septus and Storm. Septus wore a pair of knee
length beach trousers and nothing else. His bare chest was firm and he
had a fine washboard stomach. Septus was representing a wolf, what
with the light gray furred costume and a wolf head covering the top of
her head there was no mistaking her creature.
"Remember, play with the ball like the pet you are," Septus addressed
all the pets then gave the ball to his own slave. "Here, play nice."
Storm smirked, licked Septus on the nose, and took the ball. She
walked about a meter from where the Doms were gathered then stopped.
She knelt on her fours and cocked her head slightly, obviously waiting
for the other pets. Heero and the others went to join her. Brat and he
had to crawl as they were four legged mammals. Wufei, lucky penguin he
was, was walking on his feet. The Chinese slave even dared to smirk at
him, causing Heero to send a death glare at him.
When the other slaves arrived near her, Storm lifted the ball and
threw it to Brat. The ball was made from plastic and filled with air.
It was twice the size of a volley ball but was much lighter. Brat
butted the ball with his head and sent the ball in Heero's direction.
Heero had to move a few feet to the left to receive the ball. It was
slightly difficult to do since he had to crawl instead of walk, but he
made it in time to send the ball towards Wufei.
Wufei, the lucky bastard, merely raised his hands and pushed the ball
back to Storm. Heero glared at his Chinese comrade and was startled
when Storm sent the ball toward him this time instead of Brat. He
scrambled toward the ball and hit the ball with his head in Brat's
direction. In his haste, he didn't check his strength and ended up
sending the ball higher than he'd intended. Brat would have to run
fast if he wanted to catch the ball, but to Heero's surprise, Brat
jumped and swiped the ball with his hand. It headed directly toward
Wufei who was just as surprised as Heero and reacted too late. The
ball hit his face straight on.
Laughter rang from where the Doms were sitting. Heero looked in their
direction. "Score one for Brat," Septus shouted. He was laughing while
Dorothy was pouting. Souver directed a pleased smile at Brat who
straightened in victory. Heero turned to look at Duo. His Master waved
at him and shouted. "Fight, Kitten."
Heero nodded and turned his attention back to the other slaves. He
would fight and make his Master proud. He needed to find a different
way to drive the ball other than using his head. Well, he could
imitate Brat for a start. The green eyed slave obviously had played
this game before. And if a panther could use a hand to swipe the ball,
a cat could too. After all, they were from the same family. Heero
calculated what sorts of movements he could do which still fell into
Meanwhile Wufei had retrieved the ball and tossed it to Storm. When
Storm sent it to Heero, he was ready. He butted it slowly toward Brat.
He saw Brat grin and easily deflect the ball, sending it to Wufei.
This time the Chinese slave was ready. He smacked the ball toward
Storm. The female slave was ready for the attack though and she butted
it to Heero. Quickly, Heero lifted his upper body and swiped the ball
with his hand, sending it rapidly back toward Storm, who didn't expect
the attack. The ball bounced off Storm's head and slid down the beach
"Score one for Kitten." Septus shouted, this time a little peeved.
Heero heard Duo's cheer. He turned his head and saw Duo beam proudly
at him. Pleased at his Master's expression, Heero turned back to the
play. He noticed Brat's wink and smiled slightly. Wufei had that
competitive look on his face. When Storm returned with the ball, face
serious, Heero knew the game has escalated into a battle. A battle
which each slave was eager to win to please their respective Master.
"I bet ten credits my Storm will win."
"In case you haven't noticed yet, Kira, your Storm has the lowest
score." Souver snorted. "Fifteen credits for my Brat."
"Hey, she is just making allowances for the beginners," Septus
"Who are you calling beginners? My Kitten has claws, gentlemen." Duo
piped up. "I'll wager twenty credits for my Kitten."
"Twenty for my Drake as well." Dorothy joined in.
"Good, may the best slave win." Septus grinned mischievously and
shouted to his slave. " Stormy, be real serious now."
The female slave responded to the order by somersaulting and throwing
a fast volley to Heero. Surprised by the sudden change of attack,
Heero reacted instinctively. He moved aside and dodged the ball,
causing it to bounce off the sand and roll further away. He could hear
Septus' groan and Duo's encouraging yell as he chased the ball. The
Japanese slave almost reached the ball when someone abruptly cut into
his path, seized the ball, and ran away with it.
Angry yells could be heard from the enraged Doms as their little wager
was interrupted. Heero was taken aback at the unexpected turn of
events but he quickly got a hold of himself and gave chase to the ball
thief. It was obviously a male sub judging from the doggy costume he
was wearing. As the sub glanced behind, Heero caught a glimpse of the
sub's smirking face. He snarled as he recognized the face and sped up.
Of course, only stupid people would dare to cross the sponsors and Dai
was definitely one. The cheating sub was fast and ordinary people
would have had difficulty catching up to him but he wasn't a match for
a trained soldier like Heero. In a few seconds, Heero was only a few
feet away from Dai. Heero spared a second to wonder why the hell B.B
didn't control his sub before he jumped forward and tackled Dai to the
Dai didn't give up straight away. The irksome sub struggled and kicked
out blindly. Of course, Heero being Heero could easily avoid the
attack. He sat down on Dai's legs, restraining both appendages and
effortlessly plucked the ball from Dai's hands.
Dai snarled and with his now free hand, scooped the sand and threw it
to Heero's face. It was a good thing that Heero had a fast reflex. He
shut his eyes right on time and felt the sand hit his face. There were
more yells and curses from the Doms, the loudest one Heero was sure
being his Master's. He shook his head to throw the sand away and crack
one eye open. He saw Wufei, Brat, and Storm approaching him with the
Doms several feet behind them. Wanting to use his hands to subdue Dai,
Heero threw the ball toward his fellow slaves.
Dai, being someone who fought dirty, threw another handful of sand at
Heero. Heero closed his eyes just in time but most of the sand hit his
mouth which wasn't closed completely. It caused him to splutter and
cough, trying to get the sand out of his mouth. It was the last straw
for the Japanese slave. Heero snarled and without a second thought,
fisted his right hand in a certain way which brought his claws out of
the glove. He swung his hand toward Dai's face and heard Dai yell.
Four red strips appeared on the dog boy's left cheek.
Dai tried to escape but Heero hissed loudly and brought his claws out
threateningly. Dai quickly quieted and stopped struggling. And much to
Heero's consternation, the cowardly boy started sniffling and
Heero only had a few seconds to feel both satisfied and disgusted
before he heard Duo's furious shout.
Heero looked at his Master. Duo was glaring at his claws and Heero
quickly realized his error. The claws were one of his costume's hidden
weapons. He wasn't supposed to show them, never mind using them,
unless it was necessary for the mission. Heero hurriedly sheathed the
claws though he knew the damage was done.
The Doms had reached Heero and Dai and stood around them. Septus
looked at Dai's face and whistled. "When you say your Kitten has
claws, GoD, I didn't think you meant it literally, you know."
"He doesn't, unless he is provoked," Duo growled in response. "I won't
let someone find my slave helpless."
"I agree," Souver murmured and glanced as his own slave, "The claws
are a good idea. I may equip my Brat with them as well."
Though Duo had managed to explain about his having claws and contain
the damage, Heero could see the promise of punishment in his Master's
violet eyes and winced inwardly. When Duo snapped his fingers and
pointed at the sand next to him, Heero hurriedly left the still
sniffling Dai and knelt next to his Master. He wasn't going to protest
about the punishment. He knew he had lost control and could have
ruined the mission.
"Cease your sniffling, boy!" Souver snapped at Dai. The black haired
Dom was furious. With his eyebrows furrowed and his mouth curled down,
Souver looked like every inch of a mean Master.
Dai stopped sniffling at once.
"Why did you steal the ball?" The black haired Dom asked.
"I'm not stealing it." Dai protested weakly. "I just wanted to join in
What a load of bullshit, Heero wanted to say but since he wasn't
allowed to talk, Heero hissed instead.
His Master's fingers ran through his hair and stroked his head as his
Master sighed. "I think he is jealous. He was my sub for a day before
I had Kitten here."
"Jealous or not, as a sub, you should know better than to go
interrupting other people's games without permission." Septus prodded
Dai's with his toes. He glared down at the cowering boy then looked at
Duo and Dorothy. "I'm sorry that our game is ruined. I think Serpent
and I are going to have a talk with the boy's Master."
"His Master is B.B." Duo told the blonde Dom. "They are staying in the
cottage next to ours."
"B.B." Souver repeated the name then barked at Dai. "Stand up!"
Already cowed, Dai stood up hurriedly.
"You'll take us to your Master," Souver told him. The raven haired Dom
then turned to Dorothy and Duo. "I hope we will find another time for
"So do we." Dorothy spoke while Duo nodded his agreement.
"Let's go then." Septus pushed Dai forward and followed the boy, Storm
right behind him with the beach ball in her hands.
Souver nodded his goodbye and followed Septus. Brat was about to
follow his Master when he hesitated. To Heero's surprise, the green
eyed sub knelt down in front of him and gave him a lick on the right
cheek. Heero was stunned at Brat's action and stared at him with wide
eyes. Brat just grinned and turned around, running after his Master.
Heero watched the departure in bewilderment, still not comprehending
what had just happened.
"It looks like your slave has made a friend, GoD." Dorothy chuckled.
Duo just snorted.
Dorothy's voice turned into serious whisper and Heero knew she was
talking about the mission. "This is an advantage, you know. Kitten
"Kitten is mine," Duo interrupted in a final tone while Heero felt his
Master's fingers tighten in his hair possessively, "I won't use him to
"Oh please." Dorothy rolled her eyes. "You're too possessive. Friends,
GoD. Just as a friend to friend. If you haven't noticed, Brat and
Serpent are as exclusive as you two."
"I have noticed.." Duo said grudgingly.
"Jealous bastard." Dorothy sighed pretentiously. "Well, think about
it. I've have enough sunbathing for now. It's time for lunch anyway.
I'll see you at the stage." She gathered her towel and headed back
toward her cottage, Wufei trailing along closely behind her.
Duo stood there for a few minutes longer, looking thoughtful. He then
sighed and looked down at his slave. "Right, lunch. I think we shall
do the same."
Heero felt the fingers removed from his hair. They grabbed his chin
and lifted his face up. "You realize that you are to be punished for
using your claws, don't you?"
Heero nodded and tried to convey his remorse with his eyes.
"I know you are sorry. Dai can be irritating but I never thought you
would lose control." Duo smiled slightly. "Unfortunately, we don't
have time to deal with your punishment at the moment. We need to
attend the contest after lunch so your punishment will have to be
postponed until tonight." The long haired Dom collected his beach
towel and headed toward the cottage. Heero followed him.
His regret at failing his Master was slightly soothed at the slight
smile Duo sent to him.
"Here come Juno and her pet." The presenter announced. Heero watched
as Haakon and Grant walked up onto the stage. After lunch, they had
headed toward the stage. Septus had greeted them and explained that
the sequence of contestants' appearance would be in random order,
generated by computer.
Heero found out that Duo and he got the seventh place, after Haakon's
and Grant's. He and his Master were waiting for their turn behind the
stage. Dorothy and Wufei got the fourth place from behind so they were
sitting in front of the stage with the rest of the audience, watching
the other Doms parading their pets first until their turn came up.
Heero watched Haakon walk Grant around the stage which was in T shape
like the one usually used in fashion shows. Grant was garbed in a
tiger costume and walked behind his Mistress on his fours. Haakon
stopped in the middle of the stage and Grant stopped beside her. She
made a certain gesture with her fingers. Grant straightened at the
gesture and lifted his head up slightly. Heero was wondering what the
gesture was when Grant let out a loud roar, very similar to a tiger's
roar. Haakon made another gesture. Grant responded by curling in front
of his Mistress like a tiger taking a nap. Heero understood then that
Haakon was trying to show that Grant was a dangerous pet to everyone
"Hmm, not bad." Duo murmured. He smiled at Haakon as she and Grant
returned to the back of the stage.
"Next are GoD and his pet," the presenter announced.
"Our turn, Kitten." Duo smiled and stroked his slave's head before
going on to the stage.
Heero crawled after his Master. Duo had laid out what he would do on
the stage and how Heero should behave. He was a bit nervous being the
focus of attention. As a soldier, he was taught to blend in. People's
attention could have been a danger to him when he was on a mission.
Usually he was so focused on his Master that he only vaguely noticed
he was drawing people's attention. At the present time however, being
up on the stage like this, Heero was very aware of the many eyes on
him. He felt anxious and wanted nothing more than to leave the stage.
Of course, he couldn't leave the stage. He had failed his Master once
today, he wasn't going to fail him a second time. Heero strengthened
his resolve. His head held high, he focused his eyes on his Master.
Duo stopped in the center of the stage and turned towards the
audience. He held his right hand slightly apart from his waist and
positioned his palm downward. Heero quickly settled on the right side
of his Master and nuzzled his palm.
Duo caressed his slave's head and addressed the audience. "My Kitten
here is very smart, you know."
There were some snorts from the audience.
"You don't believe me?" Duo raised his eyebrows and looked down at his
pet. "What does one plus one equal, Kitten?"
Heero answered by waving his tail twice. Fascinated murmurs arose at
Duo grinned. "Good Kitten. Now, four minus one equals...?"
Heero waved his tail thrice. The audience made some more noises and
Heero suspected they were curious as to the nature of his tail.
"Smart Kitten, isn't he?" Duo spoke again, eyes still on his slave.
"He is also very adorable." He caressed Heero's cat ears which
automatically triggered the butt plug's vibration inside the Japanese
Heero mewled and nuzzled his Master's hand. His hard cock was confined
in his shorts but their tightness made Heero's state obvious to the
Duo ruffled Heero's hair fondly then straightened. Feeling deprived of
his Master's touch, Heero leant forward and rested his head on Duo's
thigh. He then nuzzled it slightly. Meanwhile, his Master turned back
to the audience.
"And I will say this just once, he is not for sale. Not now and not
ever." The long haired Dom's voice was unyielding and final. "He is
Heero hummed contentedly at his Master's possessive tone and burrowed
his face in his Master's thigh. He could feel his Master caress his
hair then give a slight pressure. Knowing what the gesture meant,
Heero reluctantly moved away.
His Master turned around without another word to the audience and
headed back stage. Heero followed his Master on his fours, feeling
every set of eyes of the audience on him and his Master.
"You may walk on your feet, Kitten," Duo said as soon as they were
safely behind the stage.
Heero straightened to his feet and waved his tail to convey his
His Master smiled at the gesture and pulled him into a kiss. Heero
melted at once and opened his mouth, welcoming his Master inside. He
could feel his Master's slick tongue roaming around his mouth. Heero's
tongue responded to his Master's, but not fighting for dominance.
"Ah, such a lovely couple."
Heero could feel Duo tense at the comment. He only needed a second to
identify the voice. Once his Master's tongue withdrew, Heero turned
his head toward the voice to confirm his deduction.
It was definitely Raoul. Wind, garbed in a fox costume, was kneeling
next to him with his head bowed.
"Bronze." Duo greeted the sponsor.
"Sorry to interrupt you, GoD," Raoul spoke. "Kira and Serpent asked me
to tell you and Lady S/M that a certain sub has been dealt with. I
hope you don't mind if I relay their message. They are rather occupied
with the preparation for the next stage."
"Not at all." Duo replied "I'm very pleased with the service of the
contest. It's very professional and satisfying."
"It's our aim to please every contestant." Raoul inclined his head.
"I'm very much disappointed that I couldn't join the ball game this
morning. I would like to see your Kitten in action, not just hear
about it from Kira and Serpent."
"I'm afraid it won't happen again. My Kitten only uses his claws when
he feels someone does something unpleasant." Duo glanced down at Wind.
"And I'm sure your sub won't be like Dai."
"Of course not, Wind is a prime model of how a sub is supposed to
behave." Raoul looked affronted at the mention his sub was doing
something improper. Heero very much wanted to cry out how badly
behaved Wind had been when he was talking with Heero yesterday. Heero
stayed silent though, knowing it wasn't his place to say such a thing,
not to mention he wasn't allowed to speak.
"That's why I'm afraid you won't see my Kitten in action." Duo said in
Raoul was mollified with the answer. He then excused himself and went
to supervise the contest.
Heero followed his Master who headed toward where Dorothy and Wufei
were sitting. Well, Dorothy was sitting while Wufei knelt next to the
blonde Mistress. Duo sat in the empty seat on the other side of
Dorothy. Heero knelt in the space between his Master's seat and
"Nice show." Dorothy grinned. "I really want the kind of tail your
Kitten has, GoD."
"Why don't you come to my cottage tonight to discuss it then?" Duo
"Superb!" Dorothy exclaimed happily. "Do you mind if I invite Juno as
well? She has been wondering about the tail also."
Heero was immediately attentive, realizing that his tail wasn't the
only thing which would be discussed tonight. A glance to Wufei told
him that Wufei was also aware of the fact, judging from his stiff
"Not at all. You ladies are welcome to join me in my cottage after
dinner," Duo smiled welcomingly.
"We will be there." Dorothy smiled back.
After the conversation, Duo and Dorothy fell into comfortable silence
as they watched the contest progress. It wasn't long before the time
came for Dorothy and Wufei's turn. The blonde Dom excused herself and
Wufei, and went to the back of the stage for preparation.
A few minutes later, Heero heard the presenter announced Dorothy and
her pet, Drake. He then watched as Dorothy walked around the stage
with Wufei following behind her like the good penguin he was. Heero
could feel a slight smile on his face as he noticed Wufei's cheeks
were slightly pink. The Chinese slave was clearly embarrassed but
stayed true in his role.
When all the contestants had had their turn on the stage, Raoul
emerged and addressed the audience. "I hope you enjoyed the show
today. We are certainly pleased to see the various type of pets
paraded on stage. Though I will end the parade now, please note that
the juries are still judging you and your pets until this evening,"
Raoul paused to take a breath "We will meet on the second floor of
Neptune Doom at 1 PM tomorrow for the next stage. There's no
preparation needed for this stage. We will explain the details
Heero blinked at the announcement. So in other words, the next stage
would be a surprise stage. Since this was the first contest he'd ever
attended, he couldn't guess what the surprise would be. His Master
might have some ideas but Heero couldn't ask him now. He would have to
wait until he was allowed to talk again to ask Duo's opinion.
"Time to go, Kitten." Duo stood up. "I'm afraid we will have busy
Busy night? Heero frowned. True they would have the discussion with
other Preventers but what else would make them busy?.... Oh yeah,
punishment. Heero's heart sank as he remembered it. Heero doubted that
he would remember to ask questions about the next stage of the contest
by the time his Master was finished administering the punishment.
Busy night indeed.
