Traumatizing the Dog
by Dev-Aki Basaa
The seduction had started hours ago. A look here, a
touch there, a carefully spoken word. They'd let it
last, neither making the first blatant move and thus
break the build-up. Perhaps, because they had the
freedom of time as they hadn't had for so long, they
reveled in the lingering enticement, drawing out the
Even as they'd eaten dinner, they'd said nothing of
importance with their mouths - they spoke of returning
to active duty and the recent change in the weather
and of the new dynamics in the apartment complex. But
their eyes. Their eyes had communicated volumes
between them. 'I want you. I need you. I love you.
I have to have you.'
Before long, Duo couldn't even swallow his next bite
of meatloaf and finally grunted out, "Bedroom?" with
Heero's answering gasp of, "Yes."
Beyond the threshold of their bedroom door, they
crushed their bodies together, passion clouding their
minds. They pulled at clothing already half divested
and suckled deep busing marks on each other's flesh.
And yet Heero pulled away, albeit reluctantly given
the way he let the parting kiss linger, pulling Duo's
bottom lip with him as he parted. He then turned to
Mari who was curled up next to the bed, ushered her
out and closed the bedroom door behind her. Soon, he
was back in Duo's arms, his mouth capturing a patch of
Duo's skin on his neck and laving it gently. Duo
didn't respond right away, his eyes were on the now
closed door even as he wrapped his arms back around
Heero's body, as if on instinct. He was still
considering Heero's move and after another moment, he
"You know," he began, pressing a kiss to Heero's
forehead as it passed before his lips, "it's not
necessarily to put her out each time. We're hardly
traumatizing the dog by having sex in front of her."
He then allowed himself to go back into the passion
that brought them to this moment, his hands dipping
low and caressing Heero's ass. "Besides," he
continued, "when you were gone, she saw me
masturbating many times."
Heero seemed to freeze, mouth open against Duo's
collarbone, one hand threaded into the base of Duo's
braid, the other slipping down over Duo's groin. He
pulled back, an alarmed expression on his face that
made Duo's eyes widen with surprise.
"You masturbated for the dog!?" Heero asked him, his
voice touched with horror. Duo froze as well, shocked
as much by the question as by the tone it was asked
in. His brows drew together, his own alarm coloring
"Jesus!" he spat, taking a step back from Heero. "You
make it sound so intentional, like," Duo gestured,
waving his hand, as if calling the dog to him, "'Here,
Mari, come watch me get off, happy family fun time',
no!" he spat out again, his hands, curled into fists,
now resting on his hips. "I was lying in bed, playing
with myself, she walked in." He then spread his
hands. "It happens."
Heero still looked alarmed. "Was she ever on the
Exasperated, Duo almost didn't have anything to say,
his mouth gaping open in utter shock. He couldn't
believe he was even *having* this conversation! "I
don't know," he said, shrugging, spreading his hands
again, as if to apologize. "Maybe. I don't
Heero still looked horrified, staring at Duo. He had
that look on his face that made Duo think of the
characters sweatdropping in his mangas.
"Argh!" Duo threw up his hands and turned his back to
Heero. "Stop looking at me like that! You're making
me feel all dirty." He folded his arms across his
chest and held them there very tightly; his shoulders
hunched a bit.
He then felt Heero's arms wrap around him but he
didn't relax. Did Heero *really* think he was some
kind of pervert!? ACK! What if he was!? Duo winced
at the thought.
"I'm sorry," Heero said, rubbing his hands over Duo's
arms. "Do you want me to let her in to watch us?"
"No!" Duo said as he turned to face Heero. Then
shaking his head, he added, "You are SO missing the
point, Yuy!" He gestured towards the door,
continuing. "You always make a point to shield her
from us having sex and I'm saying it's not necessary,
but we don't have to give her a front row seat
Heero's continence seemed to resign to that idea.
"Okay," he said.
"Okay?" Duo wanted to make sure. He didn't want this
conversation to come back to haunt him. 'Yes,
Therapist-san, he makes me have sex in front of the
dog; I'm horrified by it. It's ruined our
"Yes," Heero said with a nod. He rubbed his hands
over Duo's arms again, sliding up to his shoulders and
back down. He dipped his head a little to catch Duo's
indirect gaze. "Are we okay?"
"Yes," Duo answered, but he still felt kinda creepy
over this entire conversation. Mari being present was
just an accident, he swore!
Heero brushed his fingers through Duo's bangs. "May I
make love to you now?"
Duo couldn't help but smile after a question like
that. He let his arms drop to his sides and raised
his gaze to meet Heero's full on. "Yes," he told him.
"Look," Heero then said, taking a step towards the
door, "I'll even open the door. Whatever happens,
He opened the door, pushing it to its extreme, and
then he came back to Duo, taking his chin between his
thumb and forefinger and leaning in to kiss him.
Their passion of before fared easily back to life.
Soon they were on the bed, stripping each other of
clothing, rolling back and forth to assist the
process. A shirt flying that way; pants soaring the
other way. Duo trailed his mouth down Heero's sternum
only to be flipped over and have the same done to him.
He was just about to turn Heero back over and have
his way with the sensitive skin of Heero's inner thigh
when a large *thump* stopped them both for a moment.
Heero looked up and then back down at Duo.
"I think I just knocked Mari off the bed. Do you
think she's okay?"
"Did she run away?" Duo asked.
Duo nodded, reaching up, cupping his hand across the
back of Heero's neck to pull him back down. "Then
she's fine," he said.
Heero resisted against Duo's hand, his face crumpling
with concern. "Maybe we were better off with the door
Duo shook his head. "No, this is better. A lesson
has been learned here," he said as he rubbed his thumb
along the side of Heero's neck, grinning at his
answering shiver. "Some rough and tumble games she's
not invited to be a part of and she'll have to amuse
herself until we get done or get hurt in the process."
Heero cocked one brow, looking a tad suspicious at
Duo's logic. "If you say so."
Duo shook his head. "No, what I say is, 'kiss me
harder, Heero Yuy.'" And he pulled again on the back
of Heero's neck, this time drawing him down and
capturing his lips. Soon they were too lost in the
intensity of their passion to pay thought towards
anything other than each other.
Mari stood in the doorway watching her people rut
against each other. She cocked her head to one side,
puzzled by the sounds they were making and the odd way
they were saying their words. Then, with a little
puppy sigh, she turned away and went off to find
something more interesting to do.
Humans were so strange.
