Everything (is never quite enough)... Diop, Wasis
I woke up to utter blackness and lay in the velvet caress of it, trying to remember where I was, and what I had been doing. The soft sound of breathing beside me brought it all back in an instant. Heero, he was beside me, real, alive, with me. I smiled in the black room.
But when had I fallen asleep? Searching through my recent memories, the last thing I could remember was kissing, and kissing, and kissing some more. I shivered with a small shake of delight, kissing had been very enjoyable. Then, all I remembered was slowly drifting to the bed, the kisses gradually becoming so soft and breathless that they almost weren't there.
And now I was awake, I must have fallen asleep mid-kiss. Perhaps with the excitement of the past few days, the emotionally charged and energy draining worries, and then Heero's arrival itself, I'd been more tired then I'd known. Apparently I wasn't the only exhausted person in the room; Heero too seemed dead to the world.
An inkling of an idea snuck inside my mind, just something Trowa and Quatre had mentioned, something I'd wanted to try when they'd told me of it. What was it called again? Some silly name, the opposite of the action itself, ah yes, a blowjob. That name just didn't make any sense; the other name for it made a bit more, oral sex. That sounded much more correct somehow.
I shifted quietly, sliding down the cool bed, moving as close to Heero as possible, hoping he wouldn't wake up just yet. My fingers coasted over his stomach, lightly caressing the muscles that slid beneath his skin. He murmured softly when my hand reached the waistband of the loose pants he wore. My smile grew larger at the next exhalation of breath, and I carefully began sliding those pants down his hips, letting my hands smooth down his skin as I removed them.
It made me wonder if he was truly asleep to feel him already hard when my hand reached his sex. Perhaps he was having a dream of some sort. I shook my head, running my fingers slowly up and down the firm length of him; he was hot, like warmed metal within my palm. I liked it, the silken skin covering him, so warm with life. The tip of it was wet, a few droplets escaping already; perhaps, it was a good dream?
Leaning forward over his hip, I bent my head, sticking out the tip of my tongue and tentatively tasting the moisture that leaked from his arousal. The flavor was... different, unlike the training module's slave, sweeter, less salty, interesting. I let my tongue slide down the curved head of it, lapping up the sweet fluid that beaded from the small slit. Gradually I took the whole of it into my mouth, sliding my lips down, wondering how much of it I could take in.
I felt a hand on the back of my head, fingers slowly twisting inside my hair, Heero's hips raised a little, a soft moaning filling my ears, almost as much as he was filling my mouth. It was making me feel so turned on, switched on, as if my body was going to explode from it all. I could feel my erection rubbing against the bed, Heero's hands turning into fists, the warm flesh held inside my mouth pulsing, my tongue greedy and hungry for more of that flavor. His muscles tensed suddenly, body going rigid and tight.
The liquid warmth that spilled into my mouth and down my throat was delicious, tasting of Heero, of pleasure. I swallowed convulsively, my hands resting on his hips moved to hold him between my lips, letting me gain every drop that coursed from him. Soon enough I had every last ounce, and let my mouth slide back up, releasing him and slipping up the bed and his body, rubbing my aroused skin against him as I searched for his face in the darkness.
"Duo," he whispered, and that soft sound led me to his mouth. I kissed him, slipping my tongue along his lips for a moment before he pulled away, his breath soft against my cheek. "Why did you do that?" He asked, and I smiled, pushing my face against the smooth skin of his neck.
"I wanted to wake you up."
"And that was the only way you could think of?" His voice sounded amused, one of his hands sliding over my shoulder and tugging me closer, until I lay half on top of him.
"It was either that or shaking you awake, I thought you would enjoy that more. Besides, I wanted to try it." I rubbed against his hip, letting him know about my own state of excitement. "How about a return of favor?" I pressed my mouth to his neck, trying not to laugh at my own audacity.
"A return of... hm, I have something better." He moved slightly, rolling me onto my side, mouth meeting my own, distracting me from the position he was maneuvering my body into. His thigh slipping between my legs, arms coming to rest on either side of my head.
"You're hard again," I whispered against his mouth, experimentally thrusting my body against his.
"Yes, why so I am." He chuckled softly, shifting and running his hand along my thigh, spreading my legs open.
"What are you going to do now?" I asked, my head tilting, back arching as his hand slid upwards, cupping me, fingers spreading open against my body.
"Now? Trying something."
"Are you teasing me?"
"In an odd way, yes." He laughed a little, his hand moving firmly upwards, forcing a gasp from me as it wrapped around the pulsing flesh between my legs. "I'm going to taste you." I could feel his breath slithering around me, engulfing my skin with sensation.
Then he was lifting me, spreading my legs farther apart, his hair brushing the inside of my thighs as he ducked his head. His tongue slid up the sensitive skin of my thigh, flicking out briefly across the base of my erection before slipping downwards. As I realized what he intended I felt such a thrill, my body already moving closer, my hands gripping the bed like claws.
His tongue caressed in one smooth movement all the way to the base of my spine and then plunged inside my body. A slick invader that felt divine, his fingers tightened on my hips, pulling me closer, the plunging movements of his tongue becoming deeper. I let my body ride the wave of pleasure, bent almost backwards trying to gain more of him. I could hear my own moans filling the room but was unable to stop them.
My hands reached for him, tugging his hair and his mouth moved again, sliding out of me, moving to explore the soft sac nestled below my arousal. Then he slid up my length and swallowed my erection, the pressure of his mouth, arching my body further. He didn't seem to mind the tight grip I had on his hair, my legs wrapping around him.
I tugged on his hair again, dragging him gently by it so that his body slid against my own, hot skin to skin. I could feel him smile before he acquiesced, drifting slowly up my stomach with his mouth, brief forays of his tongue against my skin marking me with heat. He paused when he reached my chest, teeth nipping at a stiffened nipple before I tugged on his hair once more, forcing him upwards again.
Our lips met finally, his body crushing down on my own and then lifting to slide between my legs, grinding our bodies together fitfully. My tongue met his, his mouth tasting like me and strangely of him as well. His hands drifted down my back, pulling until we knelt together, until we were pressed from knee to chest as closely as possible. Our erections rubbed together, his mouth forcing mine open further, hands spreading my legs and lifting me to straddle his lap, holding me so that I could feel the head of his shaft just waiting to delve inside of me.
"Wait," I managed to mumble as we separated our lips for a quick breath.
"What's the matter?" He sounded just as breathless as I felt, his fingers kneading my rear, spreading me open, erection nudging against that entrance to my body.
"Need... stuff... " I pulled away for a moment, feeling around beside the bed until I found the small tube of lubrication Trowa had suggested getting.
"Duo, shall I show you something?"
Heero laughed softly, "Fliogan's are very adaptable Duo."
His hands spread me open again, his mouth moving against my neck as he whispered. "The Steelshift is very adaptable as well, it can become a kind of coating, as you've seen."
I nodded; dropping the little tube of lubrication off the bed and gripping his shoulders with both hands as he slowly pushed inside of my body. "Let me... guess... " I paused, trying to keep from gulping the air as the sensation of him filling me became overwhelming.
He panted against my shoulder for a moment, then raised his hips, pushing inside of me once more, deeper. The sensation seemed to become different somehow, slicker.
"It can become slippery," he said, thrusting harder, opening my body wide, and yet not hurting me at all. "The coating can become as slick as oil."
I didn't respond, was unable to, as every nerve seemed to be focusing on his length sliding inside of me, going so deep, I leant backwards, gripping his shoulders tightly, reveling in the feel of him delving inside. I'd never felt anything like it before; not even VR could compare to the steady driving sensation, the building of ecstasy that was taking hold of me. It felt like my skin was heating up, and then an odd surge across my forehead had me gasping. I opened my eyes in surprise, blinking at the strange blue glow that shed light on Heero's features. I hadn't turned on the lights, so what was happening?
I realized I'd stopped moving, gazing with awe at the glow that seemed to be emanating from the wetwiring inside my body.
"What is it? What's wrong?"
"I... don't know if it's wrong... Heero, this may sound strange, but, my wetwiring, beneath my skin, it's... glowing."
"What?" His hips shifted, bringing my attention firmly back to the heated arousal that sat inside of me pulsing and slick.
"Mmm... it doesn't matter... don't stop... " I raised up, pushing back down hard, biting back a moan as I took every inch of him inside. I kept my eyes open, watching his face, feeling my arousal twitch at the look on it, his eyes were closed, lips open and breathing harsh. The blue glow from the wetwiring in my hands caught my attention; it looked like shining, light filled jewels rested below my skin. I'd have to examine it later. My body was too busy feeling good for a mere glow to distract me for long.
As it had in the Rainbow journey, the sensations were quickly becoming almost too intense, shudders wracking me, tears coming unbidden and slipping nearly unnoticed down my face. I let go, letting all of my thoughts loose, freeing all constraints on my body, becoming a figure of pure pleasure, feeling only Heero within me, against me, beneath me, he surrounded me. The soft blue glow from beneath my skin became intensely bright, so much, that my eyes closed against the gleam of it.
"Duo... Duo... something strange is happening." Heero whispered, clinging to me as much as I clung to him, his head coming to rest against my shoulder, mouth moving in a silent chant against my skin.
"I know... don't stop... please... " It was peaking, it was coming, something huge was going to swallow us soon, my body became wracked with shudders, Heero's wings folding around us, wrapping tightly about our bodies. Something deep in the back of my mind clamored for attention, a memory just beyond reach. All I knew was it wasn't something to fear, and then my back was arching impossibly, bending so far my head brushed my own spine. Just as I climaxed, feeling Heero deep inside, filling me with heat, the pain came.
A scream tore from my throat, the searing pain spreading across my shoulder blades, like knives erupting from my skin. The blue glow filled my sight even behind closed eyelids, the gripping pain sliding up my spine, stars slithering across the glow of sapphire. And then it ended; I collapsed bonelessly against Heero. His voice coming to me in waves as if across a great distance.
"Duo, are you alright, what happened, Creos! Tell me you're all right!" His voice suddenly became sharp and loud, my hearing coming back full focus. I felt his hands drift across the gently simmering pain in my shoulders, and then they stopped.
"Fina" I croaked, opening my eyes again, squinting against the glow that surrounded us.
"Yes Mr. Maxwell?"
"Please... show me... my back." I bit back a tremor of pain, forcing it down. A screen lit up in front of me where I peered over Heero's shoulder. I must have gasped, I know I must have let out some sort of noise at the sight before me.
"What is it?" Heero asked, fear in his voice.
"I... " I swallowed hard, "Heero, I have... wings."
"They're blue... and... they look like glass... "
"Fina!" Heero barked, "connect now, I need sight."
"Yes Mr. Yuy." Fina responded, much to my surprise.
I watched, as his eyes seemed to come into focus. He turned his head, glancing behind us at the screen that clearly showed a view of my back. His mouth dropped open. "What in creation happened?"
"I don't know... "
"I think we'd better go see your friend Chang now. This is important... very important."
