summary: Kurogane takes a favor from Fai.
notes: for kneazles, for this request on fic on demand. also, i could (and should) have put this in the series, but... that would have meant getting up and walking all the way over there *points* to get locations and names right. so, out of laziness, these are just occurring on random worlds (or, in series, but lacking in detail. whoops). =p


Fai was just about to fall asleep when he was found out. Kurogane kicked him needlessly roughly in the leg, and then picked him up by the arm.

"He~ey," Fai complained, yawning. "I was sleeping. Kuro~tan is mean!"

Grunting, Kurogane fairly well tossed Fai into the bedroom they were sharing with Syaoran. "I need to borrow your body for a minute. Try to be quiet."

Fai laughed. "What... borrow? What are you...?" Not that he couldn't tell, the way Kurogane's hands were going to work on his clothes. He leaned back on his elbows and grinned at Kurogane. "Don't you think this requires a bit more than just 'try to be quiet'? And that 'for a minute' isn't too promising, Ku~ro~pin."

"Shut up!" Kurogane clenched his teeth, pulling Fai's pants off. "Do you have to talk constantly?"

Smirking, Fai ran his hand up his chest, pulling his shirt up. "Well, if you really want me to be quiet, I'm sure you can find a way to shut me up." He winked at Kurogane.

He narrowed his eyes, but he knew what to do. He bit at Fai's lips as he fumbled with his own pants.

The added benefit was that he couldn't hear Fai's laughs this way.


It was rare for them to each have their own rooms, and nice big beds, and super fluffy pillows, and glass of warm milk to go to bed with, and slippers!

Fai liked it here.

It was even snowing outside, and he had a nice, fluffy comforter. Mokona had a place to sleep on his... or her own, so Fai could really stretch out.

Not that he totally minded sharing, either.

Kurogane was quiet opening and closing his door. It must be frustrating for him to sneak around like that, but that only made it funnier to Fai. He kept his back to Kurogane and chuckled into his pillow. Kurogane put a knee on his bed, and shook Fai roughly.

"Wake up. C'mon."

He opened one eye. "What? I'm sleeping."

Kurogane bit his lip. "C'mon. Just... I'll make it worth your while."

Fai pouted. "I'm sleeping, Kuro-pon. How do you plan on making it worth my while?"

Grunting, Kurogane slipped his hands under the sheets, and he squeezed Fai's bottom. "If you really don't want me to come here, you can tell me to leave. Otherwise, stop being such a whiney tease and let me in."

Fai rolled his eyes. Kurogane was really not good at seduction. He felt sorry for whomever it was that he had left at home. He rolled over, though, because he was feeling generous.

Three times...

Kurogane followed him into the kitchen, and took him by the waist, pushing him to the pantry.

"Hey!" Fai laughed. "I'm supposed to be serving, Ku~ro~pon!"

"This won't take long," Kurogane grunted, already pushing his hands under Fai's clothes.

Fai caught Kurogane's wrists. He certainly wasn't as physically strong as Kurogane, but he wasn't weak, either, and he could get the other man's attention, if nothing else. "Hey. Did you think that I came along on this journey to be useful to you whenever you liked? I've been kind so far. But you're pushing it."

Kurogane glared, staring directly into Fai's eyes, until eventually, his resolved melted under the heat of Fai's cheerful obstinence. "Fine. What do you want me to do, then?"

He made a show of considering it, because it wasn't like he'd let Kurogane think he had already considered this. "Well, for starters, you could let me know you're not waiting for a bill, Kuro-tam." He winked with a sardonic twist to his lips.

Kurogane's back stiffened, and he let go of Fai's waist. He looked away, and then took a breath. "There's someone back home... she drives me nuts. And we're definitely going to have words. But. She's."

"Special," Fai yawned. "What does this have to do with the subject at hand?"

Kurogane's jaw shifted. Fai could practically hear his teeth grinding. "I'm not going to spout nonsense at you. You have a beautiful body, and I lust for you. And. You aren't completely incompetent. You are annoying, though. Still. I don't mind being with you."

"Aw, Kuro-pin, that's so sweet!" He threw his arms around Kurogane's neck, and kissed him, biting his bottom lip. He smiled predatorily, and winked. "Just as long as you know that I'm just using you for sex."

"You idiot," Kurogane sighed, and went back to taking off his pants.
