Introduction

Image
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life


On the surface, Ferburn is a perfect tourist spot. A rather beautiful city, with an abundance of independent businesses and some rather niche stores, it seems... happy. But beneath the surface, there's a war that nobody dares mention. Two warring families, a feud that has existed for so long that people can hardly remember how it started. But it remains as brutal as ever. Businesses sabotaged, rumours spread to the media... it's a side that is lurking just beneath the shiny surface. In the past generation, it has turned to violence, a dirty secret Ferburn struggles to keep under the surface.

And then, as always, something changes. A Hunt and a Maione meet by chance, neither knowing who the other is. Both carrying their own problems, both desperately trying to bury them. And in the space of a night, a spark is lit, the beginning of something. But then they discover who the other is, and are heartbroken. Can they overcome their families' differences to get their happy ending? Or will they be like the immortal star-cross'd lovers, destined to only be together in death?

Eli’s day had, frankly, been the day from hell. The night before, some Maione bastard had shot his brother. Or at least, that was all he had heard from the hospital, as well as “there’s no need for you to come in.” Eli had assumed that was a safety issue and as a result, spent the entire day staring into space and pacing so much he had traversed the entire house at least five times. Eventually, hours later, Eli had discovered that Gerard had, in fact, been shot in the leg and had required minor surgery to stabilize the bone. As far as gunshots went, it was pretty minor. Eli could have passed out with relief at that news, but perhaps not for the reasons his parents would have hoped. But after all that, he was in desperate need of a release.

The routine was the same now. As far as his family knew, he was going to go out and meet a few friends. If he wasn’t home, he’d probably just gone to stay with one of them, but if he was going to do that, he’d let them know. If he was sighted in a gay bar and his family found out, he got a tip-off about someone that his family wanted blackmail on, and had to play along while he was there. He’d been doing this for years now, he knew the lies like the back of his hand.

The bar was in a rare neutral part of town, somewhere there was less of a chance of being seen by someone connected to his family… or being attacked by somebody who opposed them. He was unarmed, which he knew his family wouldn’t be happy with, but he was so beyond caring. He just wanted to be Eli for one night instead of being Elliot Hunt.

The bar always had a good atmosphere while still being somewhat relaxed. The music was good but not so loud you had to shout to be heard, and the staff were always friendly. He scanned the room for a moment, before heading to the bar. “Rum and Coke, please.” He took a spot at the bar, almost instinctively picking a seat that gave him a good view of the room while making it difficult to sneak up on him from behind. It was a habit that had been drilled into him from a young age, and he hardly even realised he was doing it any more. But instead of watching the room with his usual weariness, he scanned it with curiosity, looking for someone that seemed… interesting. Someone he could talk to for a while and pretend he was someone else entirely.

Brody had been busy all day and just wanted to go out and relax a bit, blow off some steam, probably bring a boy home. He had to help out his sister the night before as she somehow found her way into Hunt territory and Brody quickly sped across town to pick her up. On the way back Madison gleefully explained what was going on and why she was running when she called him. She had attacked Hunt and won, atleast to the degree of sending him to a with a bullet in his leg, ‘as a warning’ she said.

Usually Brody wouldn’t care much about his sister tactics, but didn’t like her going into Hunt territory, but when she explained who it was, he stopped the car and just stared at her. Gerard Hunt. The current heir to the Hunt family. He couldn’t figure out if he thought she was stupid or just place crazy. Madison explained that she saw him while in neutral territory and followed him until he caught onto her, but only able to shoot him in the leg before their commotion brought attention to them.

This morning was mostly dealing with Madison and her little adventure she was so proud of, and his parents a bit conflicted about. Proud as well for what she did, but disappointed that it went so sloppily, and especially when there had been potential talks of a truce between the two families in Ferburn. When the sun finally started going down, Ambrose excused himself from his family and went out to forget about he last 48 hours, and probably make some other dumb decisions tonight, but not as dumb as his sisters. He quickly headed over to neutral territory to a gay bar that’s been getting a bit more popular while still not ending up on everyone’s radar.

As he entered, Brody quickly made his way to the bar to order a drink. “Hey honey. Had to deal with my sister for the last couple days. Care to hook me up with one on the house?” He smiled and winked, the bartender being a hook-up that had just started an actual relationship with another girl. She laughed a bit and poured him a tequila shot, him quickly downing it while handing over his card to start a tab, adjusting his rainbow bandana he had hanging from his pocket. “Mai Tai please to continue the night.” He said, winking again. While waiting he glanced over his shoulders to take a tally of the room and any potential people to have fun with. Whether this would be just flirting and playing a bit of pool, or something that would end-up with them spending the night together, Brody didn’t know at the moment, nor did he really care. But one mysterious looking stranger did catch his eye. Black outfit with an accented jacket to go along with. This would be his first conversation for the night. He asked the bartender a few questions about the man, not getting much information besides his drink of choice and only seeing him in here a few times.

After the bartender handed him his drink, Brody thanked her and walked towards the man at the end of the bar, grabbing a stool and taking a seat a few feet from him. From his walk over to him and the few seconds before sitting down, Brody looked him over a bit more, analyzing him. “You don’t come here often, do you handsome? And let’s get you something a bit more exciting than a rum and coke, need a better drink than that to get you out of the closet.” Brody said with a smile and a drink, waving down the bartender from the other side of the bar. “No offense to a pretty face like you, I just have a knack to tell.”

There were plenty of interesting looking people in the bar, but none of them had particularly caught his eye... yet, anyway. But even just being in the bar was enough to relax him a little. a welcome break from his day to day life. He knew that he probably should have been tense at the prospect of being found, but the knowledge that his family would be too focused on the Maiones and the events of the previous night to care was somewhat of a comfort. Honestly, someone could tell him where he was and what he was up to and he didn't think they'd even register it.

He took another sip of his drink as he felt his phone buzz in his pocket. Fishing it out, he was half expecting a text from some of his family, telling him that things had gone wrong again, but it was just his brother sending him a selfie from the hospital. He shook his head, grinning slightly, but quickly put his phone away as he saw someone approaching him.

The first thing that struck him was that the guy was cute. The outfit wasn't exactly Eli's style, but damn, the guy could pull it off. Eli smiled at him as he approached, pulling up a stool and sitting next to him. Confident, too. But he managed to catch Eli off guard with the comment about being in the closet, just for a second. But Eli recovered and raised an eyebrow.

"Well, if that's the way we're talking and you're buying... Long Island Iced Tea, please," he said to the bartender, before turning back to the guy beside him. "You know, I can't say I've seen you here before either, and I've been here a few times at this point. We just must have missed each other. And isn't that a damn shame?" He remarked, smirking at the man and draining the rest of his drink. "Name's Eli," he said. "What can I call you?" He asked, leaning his head on his hand.

Brody let out a chuckle when the man ordered a Long Island after he said Brody would have to pay, liking his cute smirking. “My pleasure. Hun, just add his drinks to my tab.” He said to the bartender as she brought the Long Island over and dropped a straw into it. Brody turned back to the man as he talked, a grin coming across his face as he talked about not seeing each other at the bar before, and saying it was a shame. It was night when Brody had someone to bounce compliments and flirts off of, while it was fun embarrassing someone, it was better to have some sort of interaction.

He quickly introduced himself as Eli. “Pretty name for a pretty boy.” Brody said after taking a sip of his drink, and then asked what he should be called. “Well, that's up to you. Brody. Babe…” He paused for a second, taking the cherry out of his Mai Tai and slowly sliding it into his mouth and pulling the stem off, setting it down on his drink coaster. “Daddy…” Brody wasn’t one to actually like being called Daddy, but knew it would get a reaction out of people as well. [color=#006C5D]“But as I said, don't really care, been called worse at the rallies.” He said as he finished his drink and nodded to the bartender for another, starting to feel a bit of the buzz.

“So since I’m buying you drinks, think it’s only fair you tell me about yourself. You seem like the interesting type.” Brody said, and he wasn’t entirely wrong. While he himself didn’t frequent this establishment often, the bartender didn’t have much gossip about him, and plus wearing more neutral colors and hangings towards the end of the bar, where one could easily keep an eye out as well as blend in. He was interested in knowing a bit more about Eli, the more mysterious someone was, usually the more fun they were and better secrets they would have.

The bartender brought Brody’s second drink and he thanked her quickly sliding some cash across the counter as an early tip, then turning back towards Eli while taking a sit up his drink. “Though first I guess I should share a bit about moi. I’m single, and gay..” He said with a laugh and wink.

Eli was quickly working out the type of person that he needed to be in this situation, and he was enjoying it immensely. But even still, he found himself distracted as Brody pulled the cherry from the stem, enough so that Eli was sure he blushed when Brody suggested he could call him Daddy. But he quickly recovered and managed a chuckle. He took a long sip from his drink as Brody said he should tell him a little about himself. Eli had mastered the art of telling people only the vague details while still making them feel like he’d told them enough. He grinned, fishing the umbrella out of his drink and sucking the remnants of the drink off of it, before putting it on the mat.

“Well, that’s good to hear. I would have been distraught if you’d just told me that you were straight and married,” he replied. “So what should you know about me?” He said, pretending to think for a moment as he took another long sip of his drink. “Well, currently doing some online classes. Psychology and sociology. In my spare time, I like photography and watching movies, as well as reading. Oh, and I am also gay... and single,” he said with a smile, signalling to the bartender for another drink as he took the last mouthful from his. He leaned in a little, staring at Brody’s lips for just a minute, almost unconsciously.

“What do you say we...” He trailed off for a moment, taking a sip of his drink. “... play some pool?” He finished, grinning at him and getting to his feet. “We could make a few bets. Make it interesting,’ he added, pulling off his jacket and picking up his drink.

Brody had his elbow on the bar counter and his hand holding up his chin as Eli spoke, glad he was able to make him laugh. His eyes tracked the man’s lips and tongue as he sucked the little amount of alcohol off the the umbrella that was in his drink. “Online classes? Pfft. And here I thought you were actually interesting.” Brody replied hearing about the boys school information, of course teasing. He knew if he did online classes, he’d probably fall behind since he’d either forget or just push everything until last minute. “And as I said before, I knew about the gay thing, Mr. Closet.” He let out a chuckle and took a couple more sips of his drink, his eyes wondering across the man’s body again, even catching his eyes for a second, catching him probably doing the same.

As Eli spoke up again, Brody realized he was staring and quickly sat up straight giving him his full attention. When Eli asked about pool Brody let out a little laugh. “I mean, I’ll beat you with or without a bet.” He said as he stood up and pushed his stool in, holding a finger up towards the bartender to get another drink. Brody enjoyed the way he was feeling, but knew he could feel even better.

The two of them walked towards the table, but saw two other guys already playing pool. “I got this.” Brody whispered to Eli and walked up to the two guys, pulling one in for a whisper and saying something into his ear. The man stepped back and handed him the pool cue he was holding and nodded before walking away, Brody lightly hitting him on the but as him and his friend walked away. “Hey, sometimes you just gotta say the right things to get what you want. So you said something about adding stakes?” Brody asked, walking over to the bar and grabbing his drink after the bartender waved him down.

“How about this, loser takes off his shirt for the rest of the night?” Brody said with a smirk and a laugh. He had confidence in winning the game, but he knew he had to play his cards right to get what he wanted. “Unless you’re too scared, and we can just play for a few bucks.” He continued talking, rolling the pool balls to one side and setting up the rack. He was glad when Eli accepted the terms, quickly arranging the triangle. “I’ll let you break first.”

The game went relatively good, but not good for Brody, he barely sunked two balls as Eli quickly won the game. But this was part of Brody’s plan. He downed the rest of his drink, now really feeling the alcohol and looked over at the winner of the game, who reminded him of the stakes, and letting out a deep fake sigh “Fine, fine.” Brody slowly unbuttoned his shirt before pulling his arms out and tossing it over to where Eli left his jacket. “You like the view? But come on, let’s go again. Double or nothing? You got a lucky break.” Now Brody was setting up the real stakes, he was hustling the man now, and hopefully he would take the bait.

Eli smirked as Brody said he’d beat him hands down, and watched as he went over and got the two guys to vacate the pool table. At his suggestion for the bet, Eli just laughed and raised an eyebrow. “Alright, pretty boy, you’re on. Loser takes his shirt off.”

Eli wasn’t half bad at pool, but beating Brody was almost too easy. Eli smirked as he sunk the eight ball and turned around to Brody. “Come on then. We agreed on the stakes,” he said, leaning against the table and folding his arms. He watched as he pulled off the shirt, grinning all the time. He shrugged as Brody asked if he liked the view. “It ain’t bad.” Eli suggested they go again, for double or nothing. “Alright, if you’re so eager to lose again.”

Eli’s suspicions that it had been too easy to beat Brody the first time around were confirmed when he suddenly seemed to be much better the second time around, and they were much more closely matched. Brody very nearly won, but messed up on the last shot and gave Eli the opening to sink the 8 ball himself.

“Well.” He turned around, smirking. “You’ve already lost your shirt, so what’s going to be your forfeit now?” He asked, draining his glass. The alcohol was starting to kick in and it felt good. He took a step closer and leaned in to Brody’s ear. “I think we might get kicked out if I told you to take off your pants,” he whispered, before smirking at him and taking a step back. “So... any ideas?” He asked. “I’m sure I could figure out something... really wicked if I thought about it,” he said.

A smirk came across Brody’s face as Eli agreed to the terms, and after the first break he quickly started sinking ball after ball, though it wasn’t a breeze as Brody had hoped, he did take the early lead. The two joked around a bit more, even though the stakes were doubled, and much laughing was going on between them. He didn’t expect this coming out, but Brody was actually having a good time that didn’t feel forced or because of who he was and the name it has.

It wasn’t long until they were down to the eight ball, and Brody had an easy shot into the corner pocket, a smile on his face as he strolled past Eli and lined it up and fired. The cue ball hit the eight ball and went towards the corner pocket, but hit the corners and stopped just short, basically giving the game to Eli. He tossed his hands in the air after missing the easy shot and watching Eli sink the eight ball and win. “Bullshit.” He said quietly as he put his pool stick away and grabbed his drink, hearing Eli joke about taking off his pants. Brody rolled his eyes and downed the rest of his drink.

“Yeah yeah. How about this…” Brody walked towards Eli and leaned upwards and placed a kiss on his cheek. “There, there’s your prize winner boy. Unless you think of something else?” He said with a wink, “How about we head out? I got a place nearby where we won’t be disturbed. I have on good authority you can claim your real prize there.” Brody headed over to his shirt and grabbed it, but just holding it over his shoulder since he wasn’t allowed to put it back on. He talked a bit to the bartender and paid off his tab while Eli got ready. “It’s not that far. And try to keep up.” Brody said as he waited for a second for Eli and the two quickly left the bar, heading into Maione territory.

Not many people were really walking on the streets at the moment, and if they were they weren’t paying much attention to them. “So Psychology and Sociology? Does that mean you can tell what type of person I am by the drinks I ordered? Mai Tai by the way.” Brody asked, joking about and making small talk as the two of them walked. “I’m more into art and photography, which is my major. You know, I have been looking for a model to shoot…” He said sending another wink towards Eli.

Eli couldn’t help but smile as Brody kissed him on the cheek, saying that was his prize, but then suggested they leave and went back to his place. Eli nodded and went to get his jacket, pulling it on and leaving a tip of his own for the bartender. He raised an eyebrow as Brody told him to keep up but just followed, shoving his hands into his coat as they did so.

It was starting to get cold, but the warmth of the alcohol and the thrill of the whole evening meant he didn’t even really feel it. He chuckled at Brody’s question about his major. In reality, it was to help him better get inside people’s heads and make it easier to spy on them, better able to figure out their dirty little secrets. “Honestly, that’s the whole reason I picked that major. Very useful for figuring out guys at bars,” he replied. He raised an eyebrow as Brody mentioned he was studying art and photography, and that he wanted a model. “I’ve never modeled before, but if it’s to help out a pretty guy like you...” he said.

He was vaguely aware that they were in an unfamiliar part of town, but right then, he didn’t even care. He knew the city well enough to know that he could find his way home from almost anywhere, and besides, he was pretty sure it would be worth it. He looked around as he got into the apartment, raising an eyebrow. “Pretty nice, but… not gonna lie, not what I was expecting.” He admitted, pulling off his jacket. “So… would you like me to model for you now?” He asked teasingly, leaning on the arm of the couch. “Or had you… other ideas?”

Brody didn’t mind the breeze too much, yeah he was shirtless, but he was used to the cold from living in Ferburn for so long, plus if all goes well tonight, he would be definitely kept warm tonight.

He let out a chuckle and would’ve been blushing if the cold wasn’t already making him a tad bit red when Eli replied to him about modeling, plus he was walking a little bit ahead of Eli, occasionally spinning around to give his latest catch a look over. It didn’t take them long to get to the apartment, quickly grabbing the spare key hidden under a fake rock and headed inside. Brody honestly expected a question about the spare key, but it seemed Eli didn’t care too much. He flipped on the lights and tossed his shirt across the room onto a stole and set his phone and wallet down on the table next to the door.

“Thanks. My parents own quite a few properties, it has it’s benefits obviously.” Brody replied to Eli’s comment about his apartment. He was headed to the kitchen when asked about the modeling, letting out a chuckle. “Well, we can start with you taking off your shirt and we can decide after that. Get a little comfortable while you’re at it.” He said as he went through the rainbow beads that hung in the doorway into the kitchen. He opened the cupboards and grabbed two glasses and a bottle of pink moscato in one hand and a plate of precut variety cheeses in the other.

As he re-entered the room, Brody appreciated the piece of body work that was sitting on his couch. “And here I thought I looked hot shirtless.” He said with a wink as set down what he was carrying onto the coffee table, quickly filling their glasses. Taking a second to really stare and admire Eli. “Hmm… Wait here for a second. But, lay down.” Brody said and quickly got up, heading to the closet in the hallway, digging for a moment before finding what he was looking for, a camera. Quickly turning around and seeing Eli lying down. “Good boy.” He whispered under his breath, not sure if Eli heard him, but also not really caring.

Brody walked over to Eli with a bit of confidence and quickly climbed onto the couch and over Eli, straddling his shirtless chest. He didn’t say anything at first, just getting comfortable, holding the camera in his left hand. Brody leaned over and took a sip the wine before looking back at Eli. “Don’t be shy to… *rearrange* me if you need to Mr. Model.” Brody said as he brought the camera to his face and started to take a few pictures of the pretty shirtless boy on his couch.

Eli just grinned as Brody told him to take off his shirt and make himself comfortable. He took his time unbuttoning the shirt, looking around the apartment a little more as he did so. Now he looked, he could see traces of Brody’s personality starting to appear, and he wasn’t even sure what he’d really been expecting in the first place. Shirt off, he sank onto the couch, leaving his phone and his wallet on the coffee table.

His grin just widened as Brody came back in and complimented him, shrugging a little. “I try,” he said, reaching over to take a mouthful of the wine after the glass was filled. He raised an eyebrow as Brody told him to lie down instead and went over to the closet in search of something. Eli did as he was told, lazily reaching an arm out to retrieve a bit of cheese. He heard Brody mumble something but wasn’t totally sure what. He guessed that he was probably just talking to himself and took another sip of wine, finding it slightly more awkward in the reclined position he was in.

He watched Brody walk back over with purpose, a camera now in his hand, but was taken aback a moment when he climbed onto the couch, straddling Eli. Almost instinctively, Eli’s hands went to Brody’s hips to steady him, but once the other man appeared to be settled, Eli pulled his hands away, managing to retrieve his wine glass and take another sip. “You seem just fine where you are,” Eli said.

Eli had taken plenty of photos before, and there had been plenty taken of him, but there had never been anything quite like this. At first, he didn’t know what to do, attention of this kind entirely foreign to him. Most of the time, it was back to their apartment, maybe have a drink or two, then get down to business. But he liked this. Staring up at Brody was a damn pleasant view, and when he laughed a little out of awkwardness, it didn’t make things any more awkward. A good glass of wine helped. He reached out for another piece of cheese but after a moment, instead held it up to feed to Brody instead. “Well, tell me. Am I a good model?” He asked, raising an eyebrow and attempting to keep a straight face for a moment.

Brody would be lying if he said he didn’t like the feeling of Eli’s hands on him as he got comfortable, almost wanting to ask him to put his hands back. He was quickly turning and zooming in and out with his camera to get multiple different angles, not entirely sure what he was going for, but more so having fun. But Brody wasn’t sure why he was doing this with a stranger, but it just felt right in the moment.

He didn’t want to spend too much time taking pictures, so Brody pulled the camera away and stared some more at his model, from his beautiful fluff of hair, down to the seam of his pants. He was a bit zoned out when he noticed Eli bring a piece of cheese towards his mouth. Brody slightly parted his lips and let the man feed him, feeling a shiver go down his spine as he felt his finger tip drag across his lips, letting out a few deep breaths.

It took Brody a second to come back down to earth, not entirely sure what happened, but realized Eli did infact ask him a question. “Uh. Yeah. I mean, of course. But as any model, I’m assuming you are expecting a bit of payment?” Brody said with a fake quizzical look on his face, slightly tilting his head as he asked Eli. “How… about… this…” He spoke slowly as he set the camera down and slowly leaned down towards Eli, supporting himself by placing a hand on Eli’s chest and the other behind his head. Brody closed his eyes as he pressed his lips against Eli’s.

Brody held the kiss with the man for a few moments, enjoying the dance they did between their lips, before sitting up. He traced his fingers across the Eli’s chest, twirling with his chest hair a bit and biting his own lips staring down at him. “Was that a significant payment for a man of your… talents?” He asked, speaking with a much softer and slower tone now. Brody loved to be the type of person to drag it out, to him, it made the whole thing a little bit more fun. And Eli seemed like the type of guy that would either not mind, or take matters into his own hand. Either way, Brody was indeed enjoying himself.

Eli raised an eyebrow as Brody took a second or two to answer, enjoying the feeling of his gaze on his body. He grinned as Brody mentioned about how he wanted payment. His breath caught for just a second as Brody began to lean in, and he closed his eyes as Brody’s lips met his. Kissing Brody felt really good. The feeling of Brody’s hand on his chest, the sensation of closeness, and how soft his lips were, still tasting of wine and of cocktails. It seemed almost too brief as Brody pulled away. Eli kept his hands on Brody, his hands sliding down to his hips again as the other man sat up.

“Mmm,” Eli said as Brody asked if that was enough payment. “It’s a start, anyway. And... of course, there’s the matter of your forfeit for losing the bet. So... “ he said, reaching out for his glass and taking another sip of his wine. Then he sat up to stare Brody in the face, wrapping his arms around Brody’s neck, and leaned in for another kiss. This one was longer and deeper, and Eli was breathless when he pulled away, grinning.

“This is nice,” he said quietly, grinning. “Don’t get to do this all that often,” he mused, reaching over to retrieve another piece of cheese, holding it out to Brody for a second before grinning and bringing it to his own lips instead.

Brody loved the feeling of Eli’s hands on his hips, keeping him steady. He rolled his eyes playfully when Eli brought up the bet that he had lost and still owed the shirtless man. Brody was a bit surprised, more so startled, when Eli sat up, losing his balance for a second before the man wrapped his arms around the back and pulled them closer together for another kiss. This one was much more than the previous one. The first was a sort of appetizer and now they were starting on the main course. Brody loved the feeling of the mans chest against his and lightly ran his nails down Eli’s back before he pulled back from the kiss.

Brody was still a bit in euphoria when Eli pulled the kiss back; all coming from the mix of alcohol, and kissing a pretty boy. Brody simply nodded silently when the man whose lap he was sitting on spoke about his being nice and not being often. When the man held out another slice of cheese for him, he leaned forward with an open mouth to bite it, but missing it last second as Eli took it for himself, of course wearing a wicked grin. Brody pouted his lip out and arched his eyebrows and batted his eyes, pulling out his puppy dog face.

A smile came back to his lips as Eli brought up another piece to make up for the one he teased, Brody quickly leaned forward and snatched the cheese from between his fingers with his teeth, holding it in his mouth partly out with a smile, before pulling it into his mouth and enjoying it. “Thank you…” He said quietly as he tightened his legs around Eli, reaching over to the table for his wine glass and quickly downing it. As he went to place the glass onto the table, his buzzed mind misjudged the placement and missed setting it down straight, making it fall over and roll into the candle in the middle of the table. “Oops.” He said with a giggle, something he doesn’t do often, and not in front of other people. He was only slightly buzzed, but wanted to play up being cute a bit more.

When he leaned back to Eli he smiled and brought his hand up and gentle caressed his cheek, and going behind his ear. “You know… the bed upstairs is much.” Brody hiccuped and interrupted himself, causing him to giggle again, “...more comfortable than this couch. But I might need some help getting up there.” He said with a smile, pecking another kiss onto Eli’s sweet lips. He could easily making it up the stairs by himself, knowing he wasn’t that drunk yet, but wanted to continue the flirt with Eli.

Eli laughed as Brody pouted after he pulled away the cheese, reaching out for another and holding it out to him, Brody snatching it out of his fingers with his teeth. Eli lazily traced circles on the back of Brody’s shoulder with one hand as the other man reached out for his glass, resting his head on Brody’s shoulder for just a minute. He looked up at the sound of a glass falling over, laughing at Brody’s reaction. He just felt so... Relaxed with Brody. He knew the alcohol was adding to it but there was something about the other man’s presence that he just liked. The playful banter and teasing made Eli feel like he’d known him for longer than a few hours, because he just felt... comfortable. He didn’t care about anything else right then, didn’t care about what the morning brought, he just liked being here, in the moment.

He smiled as Brody leaned back in, caressing his cheek. As he mentioned going upstairs to the bedroom, Eli just grinned, laughing a little as Brody hiccuped, before saying that he’d need Eli’s help of getting up there. He smiled into the kiss, his heart already beginning to race with anticipation. “Well... I’d offer to carry you but I just don’t think I’m strong enough,” he said, fake pouting a little bit. “But you can hold on as tight as you’d like,” he said, leaning in for another kiss, before pulling away and standing up.

It was when he stood up that he could really feel the alcohol in his system, tilting his balance a little. He stumbled and caught himself, laughing as he did so. He was a little dizzy, but steady on his feet, and warm and relaxed and carefree. Once Brody was on his feet, Eli leaned in for another kiss, long and deep, before following Brody’s lead upstairs, his hand tightly wrapped in Brody’s.

The kisses that they kept exchanging Brody loved, but he did want to take this moment Eli to the next level, literally and figuratively. He slipped out of Eli’s lap as the taller man stood up, slouching a bit into the couch, laughing to himself as his partner stumbled. “Uh oh. Hopefully we both can make it up stairs.” Brody said as he grabbed onto Eli to help himself up, though not the most stable standing thing he could've used to pull himself up.

After they kissed again, Brody took Eli’s hand and started up the stairs, the both of them laughing and making fun of the other as they made it up to the second level. Brody opened the door to the bedroom and ushered his hand out for Eli to enter, “Pretty boys first.”” But quickly smirked and ran in himself. “Which means me, duh.”” He jumped onto the bed and crawled over to the speakers on the nightstand and turned on some music, then turning around and crawling back towards the edge of the bed towards Eli. “Come claim your prize.”” Brody said with a wink, watching Eli walk towards him.

The night was lovely, one of the best Brody’s had in a long time, and the sleep that followed all that him and Eli was even better. Though even though he slept great, Brody didn’t take long to wake up as the sun over the horizon started to shine between his blinds and brought an orange glow to the room. He made a few mumbles and groans as he didn’t want to get up, even snuggling his butt more against Eli, but knew he probably should get up, plus he was a bit hungry. Brody kissed Eli’s arm that was over him before slowly adjusting him so his bed partner’s arm so he could get up.

Brody quickly threw on some of his lounge shorts and headed down stairs to get something to drink and some food, though he felt great and somehow didn’t have a hangover. It’s been awhile since he last stocked this safe house, but was glad to see everything in the fridge still had good dates and quickly took out things to make eggs and toast. Brody wasn’t the best cook, but eggs were pretty easy to make and toast, well, is just toast, so he didn’t have to worry about that too much. After putting a light coat of butter on the bread, and putting them in the toaster, he got started on making eggs. Though he, as always, broke the yolk and gave him making them fancy and decided to just make them scrambled.

It wasn’t long until he heard footsteps making their way down the stairs. “In the kitchen! How do you like your eggs?”” Brody called out to Eli, without turning back to look at him. He chuckled to himself when he heard Eli’s answer. “Well, I made scrambled and-”” The toaster popping their fresh toast interrupted him for a second, just about timed perfectly. “And toast.”

The rest of the night certainly lived up to Eli’s expectations, and he fell asleep with his arm draped across Brody. He slept soundly, and only began to awake at the sensation of a weight leaving the bed. He dragged a hand across his face, feeling far too comfortable and feeling like he could easily fall back asleep. It was only the smell of something cooking that finally managed to get him to properly stir. He stretched as he sat up, a little sore but in a good way. He got up and found his underwear and trousers, pulling them on. He looked for his shirt for a moment before remembering he’d left it downstairs.

The smell from the kitchen as he made his way down the stairs made him realise exactly how hungry he was. He smiled as he heard Brody call out that he was in the kitchen, stopping briefly to reclaim his shirt before heading in to the kitchen. He pulled on the shirt but left it open. “Well, poached is-” he started, but then laughed as Brody announced he’d made scrambled, stepping into the kitchen. Seeing Brody there in nothing but a pair of shorts, the telltale red marks that Eli had left behind clearly visible, made Eli blush for a second, grinning. “Hey, I’m not fussy when it’s a cute guy making me breakfast,” he said

His head was surprisingly clear considering how much he’d had to drink the night before, and he wasn’t even tired. “You can cook too? Is there anything you can’t do?” He asked, leaning his head on his hand and grinning endearingly at Brody. Sometimes, he’d make up an excuse to try and leave as quickly as he could the morning after, but he enjoyed Brody’s company and besides, he really was hungry. “This looks good.”

Brody smiled a bit when Eli made the comment of him being cute. He was used to compliments and knew how good looking he was, but just hearing it from Eli just sounded different and made him feel a bit more special than any other random guy calling him cute. He pulled the toast out of the toasted and set it on a small plate as the eggs were finishing up. He laughed as Eli asked if there was anything he couldn’t do. “Well, obviously playing pool.” He said as he brought over the plates with scrambled eggs and toast on them, just one big plate with all the food and then two smaller plates so Eli could just take whatever amount of food he wanted.

“I mean, it's scrambled eggs and toast darling. Not that hard to make and rarely does it not look good.” Brody said as he was about to sit down, but then remembering. “Oh right!” Quickly getting up and grabbing jam and a couple orange juice boxes from the fridge. “Don’t judge, I just like them.” He said with a smirk after sitting down across from Eli. Brody took his time eating, getting distracted multiple times by Eli, whenever he would look up from eating he just smiled and went back to eating, this happening a couple times.

It wasn’t long until the two were done eating and Brody quickly got up and grabbed their plates. He noticed Eli tried helping. “Shh. You’re my guest, relax.” He said, rubbing Eli’s messy bed hair and quickly rinsing the dishes off before putting them in the dishwasher, bending over slowly and purposely shaking his butt at his guest, knowing he would be teasing him a bit, and guessing from the laugh it was working. Brody usually didn’t care about the partners he would pull from bars and clubs, usually quick to kick them out, but he was still having fun with Eli, and hoping this wouldn’t be the last time they would have fun together. Eli seemed like a pretty fun guy, though there was probably more to learn about him.


A frown came across Brody’s lips as he turned around, putting out his pouty face again. “Awe… that’s no fun.” He said as he walked over to Eli. “To be honest, I wouldn’t care. But we should totally hang out again.” Brody grabbed a pen off the counter and took Eli’s arm, pushing up his sleeve a bit and writing his number. “Don’t worry, it looks like a girl's handwriting, a little trick I picked up while back, fun to duplicate other people’s handwriting. I don’t want you getting in trouble just yet.” He then pulled Eli in and kissed him again, squeezing his butt a bit. “Don’t make me wait too long Eli.” He said with a smile as he pulled back front the kiss, and walking Eli back into the main room. He gave the man one last wink before turning around and picking up the mess they made the previous night.

The food really did smell good, and looked just as good as Brody dished it up in front of them. He raised an eyebrow as Brody produced juice boxes, before laughing a little and taking one. The food tasted really good, and his hunger only added to that. He kept catching Brody just looking at him, and he grinned at him every time. He knew that the minute he left, things would have to get back to normal. But for now, he could pretend that this was normal, pretend that this was a life he could lead.

As they finished, Eli instinctively went to stand up and help tidy up. Brody’s reaction made him laugh, even as he fake pouted at Brody for ruffling his hair. He ran his hands through his hair to tidy it up, but was distracted by the other man teasingly wiggling his butt at him. He laughed, enjoying the view immensely. He was only distracted as his phone buzzed. He glanced at it, and his heart sank as he saw who it was from. His father, telling him that there was a meeting in two hours and he was expected to be there. “Hey so… I have to go. Family stuff,” he said apologetically as he got to his feet and began to button up his shirt properly.

He raised an eyebrow as Brody wrote his number on his arm, grinning as he buttoned his shirt sleeves back up. He kissed Brody back, smiling into it as he felt the other man grab his butt. “Mm, I’ll have to see about that,” he teased. He retrieved his jacket and wallet and left, calling goodbye as he did so.

Nobody seemed to suspect anything as he came in, believing his story about how he’d stayed with a friend. He saved Brody’s number into his phone under a girl’s name, before showering and changing his clothes. The meeting was unpleasant. As far as his family was concerned, the Maiones had escalated hostilities and they were to respond as such. Eli wasn’t to go near the Maiones or their inner circle. It was far too dangerous for him to get so close, and he was far too valuable. But if they were escalating hostilities, then he also was going to have less freedom.

It was almost two weeks later before he saw an opportunity, but he’d texted Brody once or twice in the meantime. Eli managed to get out of the house by himself and texted him, asking if he was free to get dinner. There was a good place near a nice park, and he thought they could maybe get takeout from the restaurant and eat it in the park. It was inconspicuous enough that if anyone saw it, he could play it down as just meeting a friend, but it was nice.
