Characters: Yokoyama Yu, Maruyama RyuheiLocation: Maruyama's apartmentRating: NC-17/RSummary: incompleteWarnings: none yetYoko walked tiredly to Maru's, wondering what his friend would do once he told him what had happened. Would he react like Ryo had done and punch him, then throw him out? Would he actually listen to what Yoko had to say? There was really only one way to find out.Part of himself wondered why he was going to Maru for this, but who else could he turn to? Maru was the most understanding next to Yasu, and Yasu...well. Yoko knew that Yasu had a soft spot for Ohkura and would no doubt be as upset as Ryo, if not more so. Why had he kissed Ohkura, even with the thought that he was slightly tipsy, let alone drunk enough to confuse him for Ryo. Hina was going to be pissed, that was for sure.Finally Yoko arrived at Maru's and buzzed to be let in.
"Iie," Yoko replied softly, sitting up and rubbing at his eyes. He was almost asleep but woke from his drowsy state at his boyfriend's words, even if only just barely. Accepting the tea, he sat and waited for it too cool a bit before taking a sip, his eyes on Maru as he slipped into bed with him. "What do you want to do now?" Yoko asked quietly, still sipping at his tea and watching his boyfriend carefully. A slight cough escaped him and his eyes widened a little. He couldn't be getting sick now of all times, could he? But then again, all the stress of the past few days seemed to be catching up with him.
As Maru sat himself beside Yoko, he sat as close as he could, his shoulder brushing up against Yoko's, feeling his warmth. Feeling Yoko's eyes on him, he smiled and looked shyly down and the end of the bed. Being watched like this made Maru's cheeks turn a slight color of pink and he giggled in between his sips. "Well, for a while, let us just relax.. And I need to get your bruise cleaned again sometime" Maru said and looked at Yoko just as the other one let out a cough "-eh, Kimi are you feeling well?". Maru placed his tea on the table again and let a rubbed his hand on the blanket, trying to get the warmth which was still on his hand off, because he reached up and placed in on Yoko's forehead, not really knowing if it was really Yoko feeling warm or the effect of the tea.
Yoko put his own tea aside, not feeling very well but too stubborn to admit it. "I'm fine," he insisted, despite the coughs that threatened, one hand over his mouth to stop them. "I'm fine..."Feeling Maru's hand on his forehead, he knew he was going to be caught out, but still, he didn't want the other man to worry too much. "I'm fine. It's just the tea, I'm sure," he added, inching his way down underneath the blanket again and away from Maru's hands, which felt awesomely cool on his warm forehead.
"Kimitaka wa ii ja nai!" Maru pouted when Yoko hid under the blanket and he reached for the blanket and pulled it away from Yoko's face, which now looked a little more pale than before. "How do you really feel right now, tell me, please.." Maru looked into Yoko's eyes, concerned. Maru wasn't so good at helping people when they were sick, but he was sure he had some cooling pads and medicine somewhere, and he thought he had heard once that eggs were good when being sick.
"I'm fine," Yoko said stubbornly, trying to break eye contact with Maru. A cough made a liar out of him and he turned away until it had passed, then lay back on the pillow, avoiding Maru's eyes again. "Go and have something to eat and don't worry about me, I'll be fine."Another coughing fit and he slumped down further into the pillows, tiredly. "I don't want you to get sick, ne..."
"Stop being so stubborn!" Maru pouted, grabbed Yoko's wrists and pinned them down so he couldn't resist as he leaned in and kissed him hard. Pulling his mouth away from Yoko's, he still let their foreheads rest against each other, and Yoko's sure had turned warmer the last half couple of minutes. "Now, if I am gonna get sick too, there is nothing we can do about it, but please tell me what you need to get better!"
Trying hard to resist his boyfriend's kiss, it annoyed Yoko that he couldn't get out of the other man's grip, however much he enjoyed the kiss. "Ryuhei, you're going to get sick too," he said weakly when Maru released his lips and pressed their foreheads together, then sighed."It's just a cold. I'm sure with some sleep and a bit of cold medicine, I'll be fine. You should take some too, just to make sure, ne..."Yoko didn't actually have the slightest idea what he had, but he'd say anything to make it so that Maru didn't worry too much about him. He hated making people worry, almost as much as he hated being sick.
"Well I don't mind getting sick if it's from being close to you" he smiled at Yoko, his eyes soft.Maru slowly let go of Yoko's wrist and straightened up again, nodding to himself in agreement to the idea of getting some cold medicine. "Okay, drink your tea then I'll find the medicine." he said as he got up and wrapped the towel around him again and walked into the kitchen looking thru his drawers for medicine and cold pads.
Once Maru let him go, Yoko closed his eyes and willed himself to sleep, the coughs shaking him once in a while and stopping him from true sleep. It wasn't that he was avoiding taking the medication as such, he just didn't want to be a burden and wanted to try and sleep it off.Finally his tired body let him sleep as he turned over to Maru's side of the bed, inhaling the scent that was uniquely Maru's on the bedclothes, something that comforted him.
Maru found 2 small bottle of some medicine which he supposed was against colds and a little box containing some cold pads and looking around in the kitchen he realized that it might be a good idea for Yoko to get something to eat. "You can't fight with an empty stomach~" he said out quietly as he opened the fridge and looked at what he had "specially not fight colds..". Then he took out some eggs and green and started making an omelett, also chanhed from his damp towel and into a new Yukata on the bathroom as the omelett was near to finished.He poured the hot omelett into a small bowl and made his way to the bedroom again with bowl in one hand and medicine and coldpads in the other.Maru softly shook Yoko's should to make him wake up, his body still hot, but Maru decided that he should eat something now and take his medicine, then he could always sleep again afterwards. "Kimichan.. I made you something to eat~" he said and leaned down and kissed Yoko softly on the cheek.
Yoko briefly thought about ignoring Maru's shaking and words, but knew he wouldn't get any peace if he didn't, so looked up wearily. "Not really hungry, Ryu-chan," he whispered, suddenly aware his throat hurt and sounded scratchy. That really sucked as he knew they had to perform in a few days. Groaning, he sat up and waited for Maru to give him whatever he had in the way of cold medicines.
Supporting Yoko's body as he sat up, Maru opened one of the bottles with cold medicine and handed it to him, gesturing him to drink it out and as he obediantly did so Maru turned to the table again and took the bowl and a spoon in his hand and looked back at Yoko, "You need to eat nomatter what, would you rather do it yourself or should I feed you?"
Yoko downed the cold medicine, grimacing at the disgusting taste, then put it back on the bedside table before replying. "No, I'll...feed myself, thank you," he replied carefully, trying to avoid snapping at Maru, who he knew was only trying to help. "I'm not incapable, you know."Taking the bowl and spoon, he sat with it in his lap for a few minutes, staring at it before aware that Maru's eyes were on him. "Fine, I'm eating..." he sulked, taking a mouthful and chewing it slowly. It wasn't that bad, as far as food went; Maru was one of the best cooks out of all of them. It was just that he really wasn't in the mood for food (for once) and being sick, he just wanted to sleep.
Maru looked down on the bedsheets and felt bad, he only wanted Yoko to recoverer as quick as possible, but he didn't want to push him to eat either if he didn't want to.. "I'm sorry.. you don't have to eat if you don't want to.." Maru said, his voice very tiny, "I-it's just that your body need energy to fight off the cold.. And I figured you were kinda drained after last night.. a-a-and this morning." Maru's cheeks turned slightly pink again but he keept his eyes down.
Feeling even worse now that he'd hurt his boyfriend's feelings, Yoko looked up and patted Maru's hand apologetically. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean it like that. I'm just really tired, and my throat hurts, and... I just want to cuddle with you, if that's ok?" he asked, his voice hoarse as he tried to apologise. He tried to eat more of the food, but it stuck in his throat, making him cough uncontrollably and wave his arms around in panic. "Ryu-chan..."
Maru took the bowl out of Yoko's hands and placed it on the table and nodded understanding, his hand went to Yoko's back patting it, not wanting Yoko to choke on his food. He looked apolegetic at his boyfriend and asked "If there is anything you need, you ned just tell me, okay? A glass of water? O-or maybe something to make your blood-sugar level higher? Or-"
Yoko shut Maru up with a gentle kiss, pulling him on top of him and into the bed with him. "Stay with me, Ryu-chan," he whispered softly and kept his arms around Maru. "I don't need anything. Just you," he added contentedly, brushing hair back from Maru's face so he could look into his eyes.
Maru got surprised by Yoko's sudden kiss, but quickly gave in to it and close his eyes and let himself be pulled down. When he opened his eyes again he looked directly down into Yoko's eyes, even tho they were a bit blank because of the cold, they still were so warm, friendly and so honest. Maru felt that he could loose himself inside those eyes. He planted a small light kiss on Yoko's lips, then he looked a Yoko and smiled sheepishly "Good that I'm all yours then~"
Smiling, Yoko sank back into the bed, sliding down with Maru in his arms until they were cuddling, his face buried in Maru's soft hair. "I love the smell of your shampoo," he smiled, sniffing appreciatively. "I'll have to nick that off you," he teased, trying to chuckle until it hurt his throat and he stopped.
Maru hugged Yoko tight as they lay there, and let his hands run up and down his back, patting him softly whenever he could feel a cought making its way to the other ones troat. "But if you steal it off me, then my hair won't smell like this anymore~" he chuckled happily against Yoko's skin, his lips from time to time placing small butterfly kisses on the skin he could reach.
"Mmmmm, that is a problem," Yoko whispered, his face still in Maru's hair. Content to stay like this, he enjoyed the feather-light kisses Maru was giving him, an appreciative moan escaping him a few times. "If you keep doing that...."He left it up to Maru's imagination as to what would happen if he kept kissing him like that and making his body heat up even more than it already was, his head starting to hurt. It was this part of being sick that he hated the most and it irritated him. Closing his eyes, he let himself drift off to sleep, happy to let Maru keep doing whatever he wanted to him; it kept his mind off the cold.
"..then I'll continue when you feel better again~" he whispered and placed a last gently kiss on the soft skin and he then let himself rest more, his eyes closing and his body slowly growing heavier in Yoko's arms."Ne Kimichan.." he muttered out already half asleep, more as a statement to himself as he was not sure that Yoko was still awake to hear it "when we wake up again.. I'll make you something real delicious to eat.."
