Part: 3; The next morning (mostly Dragomir and Niles again :D; )
Warnings: yaoi, oral, fluff, Pierre (because he still gets his own warnings. XD; )
Dragomir awoke to the sound of Niles’s soft and even breathing, and felt more rested then he had in a long time. Niles’s bed was soft and luxurious, and the fact that Niles remained curled up in his arms added to his comfort tenfold. He didn’t think he wanted to move at all that morning; everything was perfect as it was, he didn’t want to do anything to disrupt it. Sighing contentedly, Dragomir leaned forward slightly and placed a soft kiss on Niles’s cheek, squeezing him gently.
Niles slowly came into consciousness, surrounded by a comfortable warmth that he came slowly to realize was Dragomir. He smiled softly, putting off opening his eyes, and snuggled into Dragomir's embrace. He was vaguely aware of feeling somewhat sticky and sore, but it didn't matter right now, right now everything was perfect. He knew, however, that work was waiting, and so he gently allowed his eyes to flutter open, looking up at Dragomir. "Good morning," he said quietly, nuzzling softly against Dragomir's face. "It's so much nicer waking up with you here...I wish you could stay forever." He let his eyes slide shut again, basking in the feeling just a moment longer and procrastinating on reality.
Dragomir smiled back and kissed Niles again lightly. “I wish I could too.” He murmured, snuggling a little closer. Dragomir didn’t really want to think about pulling himself away from this comfortable warmth and from Niles’s side, but he knew that work wouldn’t wait. Still, he wanted to make the most of whatever time they could have together before they returned back to the ordinary. Finding Niles’s lips, Dragomir engaged them in a fervid kiss and pulled Niles a little closer.
Niles kissed back, melting into Dragomir's arms. He wished desperately that he could just get wrapped up in the moment and forget everything else, but responsibility was responsibility, and so, after a few moments, he pulled away softly. "I love you," he murmured, resting his head against Dragomir's shoulder for a moment. After a little while, he finally opened his eyes. "Do you know what time it is?" he asked vaguely, realizing he had no idea.
“Nope.” Dragomir shrugged and kissed Niles on the forehead. “I think it must be early though…” No light was coming into the room yet, so it had to at least be before sunrise. He smirked at Niles playfully and added, “So we still have some time.” Dragomir shifted onto his elbows and started to sit, realizing how sticky they were from the previous night’s activities only as he started to move. He leaned back against the headboard and pulled Niles back into his arms. “I guess we do have to think about taking a shower before work, though,” he said a little glumly before his stomach growled. “And eating, too.” He laughed, pecking Niles on his cheek.
Niles smiled, settling back into Dragomir's arms warmly. "Yeah, we ought to eat..." he realized that they hadn't eaten the night previous, and that we was a little hungry. "And we do need to shower..." he smiled embarrassedly, then another thought struck him. "But I do have a pretty big shower, and I'd hate for one of us to use up all the warm water..."
A broad grin spread over Dragomir’s lips and he wiggled rather suggestively. “That’s just what I was hoping you’d suggest.” He growled playfully, nuzzling against Niles. Then he added seriously, though he knew it sounded a little silly, “I want every minute I can get with you, no matter what, because I love you.”
Niles blushed and smiled, touched by Dragomir's words, even if they did sound a little silly. "I love you, too," he replied, looking Dragomir in the eye for a moment before resting his head back against Dragomir's chest. "And I want to spend all my time with you, too, no matter what. I love you so much." He leaned up to press a soft kiss to Dragomir's cheek, then moved back a little to look at him again. "So, shall we get out of bed and shower, then?"
“Sounds good to me.” Dragomir nodded, smiling cheerfully before slipping out from under the covers and off of the bed. He hardly saw the need for modesty between the two of them any more, and as they’d be showering anyway, made no effort to get dressed. Instead he turned nonchalantly to Niles and waited for him to get up as well.
Niles blushed, hesitating for a moment before sliding out from under the covers. He tried very hard not to be embarrassed as he padded over to where his dressing gown was hung and pulled it on. Holding it around his body and realizing it was a little silly, since they were about to go get in the shower, anyway, he smiled sheepishly and showed Dragomir to the bathroom. Locking the door behind them, he turned on the water and waited for it to get warm, removing his gown again as he waited. The water warmed quickly, and he stepped inside, then moved over to the side for Dragomir, grinning a little and blushing.
Dragomir followed him in, smirking and raising his brows suggestively as he purposefully brushed against Niles. Unfortunately for Dragomir, Niles’s shower was even bigger then he could have possibly imagined, and they both had plenty of space. As they both went about washing off, Dragomir stole glances at Niles purposefully whenever Niles knew he was looking, and his smirk broadened as Niles’s blush increased. Then, as Niles was just reaching for the soap, Dragomir caught his hand and pulled him a little closer, stepping forward himself and leaning in to press a hard kiss to his lips, deepening it almost instantly.
Niles let out a surprised "Mmph!" as Dragomir kissed him, blushing brightly. He may have been embarrassed, but he certainly wasn't complaining, and he wrapped his arms around Dragomir's neck, murmuring contentedly and kissing back fervently. This was definitely better than cleaning up, he decided. Showering could wait.
Dragomir held the kiss for as long as he could before breaking apart to catch his breath as he quickly moved to kiss Niles’s neck. Dragomir ran his hands down Niles’s sides, allowing them to rest firmly on his hips as he moved a little lower, sucking at Niles’s collarbone. He continued to work his way down to Niles’s chest, and traced his tongue over Niles’s nipple thoroughly before teasing it lightly with his teeth as one of his hands moved to cup Niles’s sack, giving them a light squeeze as he continued with his mouth. “Niles…” Dragomir murmured against the other’s sternum, as he continued to work his way lower, leaving a trail of kisses down to Niles’s stomach. Dragomir was kneeling now, and he paused briefly to look up at Niles. “I-I can stop if you don’t want…” He said huskily, waiting for Niles’s approval.
Niles panted and licked his lips, pressing his body against the shower wall. The warm water washing over his body felt like nothing now in comparison, and he got the feeling that if he wasn't supported against the wall, his knees would buckle and he would collapse. "D- don't...stop..." he managed, looking down at Dragomir for a second before leaning his head back against the wall and pressing his eyes tightly shut. "P-please don't stop..."
Dragomir nodded, bending forward and taking Niles’s length into his mouth. He worked his tongue over and around Niles’s erection, pressing against his inner thigh with one hand and continuing to roll Niles’s balls in the palm of his other hand, applying only light pressure. Sliding Niles in and out of his mouth, Dragomir allowed his teeth to graze him lightly until he had worked Niles’s member deep inside his mouth. Sucking softly, Dragomir continued to flick his tongue around the underside of Niles’s shaft, and moaned lowly as he took more of Niles inside his mouth.
Niles cried out as he was enveloped in the wet warmth of Dragomir's mouth. He squeezed his eyes shut, and his hands somehow found themselves entangled in Dragomir's hair as he moaned again, unable to keep silent. It was all he could do to keep from rocking his hips and thrusting further into Dragomir's mouth, and he found it impossible to contain the constant noises of pleasure coming from his mouth. The vibration of Dragomir's moan sent another wave of pleasure through his body, and he cried out again, squirming a little and hoping desperately that his legs wouldn't give out.
Niles’s vocalizations were causing Dragomir to become aroused as well and he moaned throatily again. Still, he forced himself to concentrate on doing all that he could to please Niles; making him feel good was more then enough for Dragomir anyway. Suppressing his body’s autonomic urge to gag, Dragomir took more of Niles into his mouth and dragged his tongue across his length; applying pressure to a spot at its base that he knew was bound to draw a particularly positive reaction.
Niles moaned unreservedly, grasping Dragomir's hair and rocking his hips slightly, unable to restrain himself. "D-Dragomir!" he cried, throwing his head back against the wall as he came. His knees felt weak, and he pressed against the wall, trying to keep his balance. After a few minutes, he managed to get his breathing back to normal, and his vision came back to him as he let his eyes slide open, and he looked down at Dragomir smirking back up at him. There was a small droplet of cum stuck on his cheek and another on his chin, and suddenly, Niles felt very embarrassed. Blushing brightly, he smiled sheepishly back at Dragomir, not really knowing what else to do.
Dragomir wiped his fingers across his face and licked the cum from them suggestively, before running his tongue over his lips and teeth, savoring Niles’s rich flavor. Dragomir then got to his feet slowly and pressed against Niles, engaging his lips in a fervid kiss.
Niles kissed Dragomir back, and he could taste himself on Dragomir's lips. It was a little strange, but kissing Dragomir was enough to make him forget about it, and he once again wrapped his arms around Dragomir's neck, pressing back against him. When they broke apart to catch their breath, he smiled at Dragomir. "I love you, Dragomir."
“I love you too,” Dragomir grinned, looking over Niles with a certain smug satisfaction. By this time, the water was just beginning to run a little cooler then it had when they’d started, and though Dragomir was impressed by how long it had lasted, he didn’t want to get caught having to rinse in cold water. “Do you think we ought to start actually cleaning now?” He asked with a laugh, unable to keep his face straight.
"Yeah," Niles said with an embarrassed laugh, reaching for the soap which he had been previously impeded from getting. He washed his own body, then passed it to Dragomir and washing his hair. By the time they finished, the water was almost cold, and so Niles hurriedly stepped out and wrapped himself in a towel, offering another to Dragomir.
They made their way back to Niles' bedroom, and Niles went about getting dressed, picking out a clean uniform and blouse, and made his way to a corner to go about dressing, trying hard not to feel so embarrassed about it. He managed not to hurry too badly, and moved over to his dressing table to tie the ribbon at his neck and then fix his hair. It came out immaculate, as usual, and he picked out a matching burgundy ribbon to tie in it. As he finished, he turned to see if Dragomir was ready so that they could see about breakfast.
Dragomir was mostly ready; he had a tendency to dress haphazardly and then fix himself up as he went about his usual morning activities. He looked back at Niles never the less and grinned to signify that he was ready to go down for breakfast, despite the fact that his shirt remained untucked, his vest unbuttoned, his cravat untied, and his hair down. There was a reason for the latter however; he’d lost his ribbon. He wasn’t concerned however, and made his way over to Niles, tucking his shirt in as he walked. “Are we ready for breakfast?” He asked with a smile.
"Yeah," Niles agreed, looking over Dragomir. "But first...well, would you mind if I did your hair for you?" He smiled sheepishly at Dragomir, and offered him a seat at his dressing table. Dragomir sat down, and Niles began to brush out his hair, softly working out the knots. Once it was brushed, he opened his box and found a green ribbon with gold edging that matched Dragomir's uniform and carefully tied it in a perfect bow in Dragomir's hair. "There, how does that look?" he asked, taking a step back and smiling.
Dragomir ran his hand over his now silky smooth hair and tilted his head so he could see the bow. “It looks really good!” he exclaimed. He never used a brush himself, and so even though it had hurt a little when Niles was working through the tangles, Dragomir could tell that it had been worth it. His hair was generally unruly, but Niles had a way with hair and bows, and even Dragomir looked good. Dragomir got to his feet and pecked Niles on the cheek. “Thank you for everything.” He grinned, looking at Niles for a moment. Niles nodded, and they both made their way downstairs to the kitchen. Dragomir worked on buttoning his vest on the way, and was pleased to see that it was just tight enough to conceal the fact that he was missing a multitude of buttons on his blouse. Luckily, only one was gone from his vest, and he didn’t think anyone would notice it anyway.
When they arrived downstairs, Niles was delighted to see that his servants had once again read his mind and were almost finished preparing breakfast. He took his usual seat at the table and waited for Dragomir to do the same as the servants began to set out the food. Everything was perfect, as always, and Niles made a mental note to thank his servants profusely once again. Once the trays of fruit, pastries, and bread and the glass pitcher of milk had been set out, he smiled at Dragomir. "Help yourself."
“Thanks.” Dragomir smiled, filling his plate with fruit before he helped himself to a glass of milk. Dragomir hardly ever had the chance to drink milk, and he never had such a wide variety of fruits to choose from, so it was always a special treat when he got to eat with Niles. Of course, everything he did with Niles was a special treat just because it was with Niles.
They took their time finishing their breakfast, as both of them were extra hungry after skipping dinner the night before, but finished exactly on time. As they were getting up to leave, a few of the servants skittered into the dining room to clean up all the dishes. One of the servants, who Dragomir didn’t fail to notice, was Pierre. Dragomir swaggered over to where Pierre was working and smirked smugly. Pierre turned with a sneer, but held his tongue, and Dragomir again marveled at how trained and disciplined Niles had gotten him.
“So how was your Valentine’s Day, Pierre?” Dragomir patronized, folding his arms and enjoying the opportunity to be so condescending to his brother in law.
“Fine,” Pierre spat, setting the dishes down on the table again. “Forgive me for not asking the same question of you, but I think, unfortunately, I can guess, and I don’t want to know any more about your disgusting practices than I have to.” Pierre scoffed as he picked up his dishes once again. Dragomir raised a brow, and Pierre quickly bowed and added a resentful “sir,” before continuing towards the kitchen. He stopped before he reached it however and walked back huffily. “And you know what? I had to clean that hall! Can’t you at least try to be considerate? That’s the last thing I want to hear in the morning!” Pierre shuddered and screwed up his nose.
Dragomir smirked for a second before disguising his amusement with indignation. “Don’t you have anything better to do then listen? If I didn’t have a vested interest in your paycheck, I think I might have made sure you lost your job this morning.” Pierre generally always fell for his antics, and went white as a sheet before apologizing profusely and hurrying back to the kitchen without another word. Dragomir laughed and turned smirking back to Niles. “I like having him working for you.” If Pierre was really that disturbed by their activities, Dragomir couldn’t help but think up a few future schemes just to mess with him a bit.
Niles grinned back. "It's nice, isn't it?" he agreed, amused by Pierre's actions. Though he could be a pain, he really was good at being a servant, and Niles was glad to help with the income, as well as boss Pierre around a bit. "Well, shall we get going?" he asked Dragomir with a smile, heading towards the front door. Though they were early, he still knew they had to leave some time soon to get to work on time. Just as they were about to go out the door, however, he placed his hand on Dragomir's shoulder and kissed him in the cheek. "Thank you for everything," he said softly, drawing back. "I hope I gave you an okay Valentine's Day."
Dragomir smiled and reached for Niles's hand, drawing him a little closer again. "It was incredible," he said softly as he leaned forward and kissed Niles lightly on the lips. "Thank you," he added as he drew back. With another smile, Dragomir opened the door and held it for Niles, following him out to the car.
They only got about halfway to Headquarters before they ran into heavy traffic. Dragomir leaned out of his window to see how far up the line of automobiles went and turned back to Niles to report. "I think it'll be a while. It's really backed up. Do you think there was an accident?"
Niles tapped the steering wheel anxiously, biting his lip. "I guess there must have been," he agreed. He really didn't want to be late, especially not the morning after Valentine's Day; as if getting in trouble wouldn't be enough, the Lt. Colonel would probably make fun of them again...still there was nothing he could do but wait, so he smiled nervously at Dragomir before going back to looking at the steady line of automobiles ahead of them. They arrived at work close to half an hour late, and Niles knocked hurriedly before entering and bowing hastily. He waited a good bit of time before looking up. "I'm sorry, sir, we go stuck in traffic, and there was nothing we could do about it, and--" Niles' unyielding stream of words trickled to a stop when he realized that the Lt. Colonel seemed completely unphased. "...Sir?"
"Good morning, Warrant Officer! Good morning, Captain," she greeted cheerfully, smiling at them before looking back to her paperwork. Niles was completely caught off guard. Once they were out of earshot, he whispered to Dragomir, "Why do you think she's so happy?"
“I have no idea…” Dragomir said, furrowing his brows as he watched her out of the corner of his eye as she went about her duties with an extra skip in her step. He bit his lip as he thought for a moment, before coming up with an idea and turning back to Niles with a smirk. “Have you ever noticed her ring?” He asked rhetorically. “I bet she has a sweetheart, who gave it to her, that she doesn’t get to see very often, and since it was Valentines, they got together.” He concluded triumphantly folding his arms. “And that’s why she’s so happy today.” He added to make sure it was clear.
Niles blinked back at the Lt. Colonel, then back to Dragomir. "But she's not wearing the ring today," he said back plainly, blinking up at Dragomir. "I wonder what that could mean..." He was cut off, however, by a sudden over-cheerful voice coming from a little too close. "What are you two whispering about?"
Niles jumped back to see the Lt. Colonel, who had suddenly appeared only a few meters behind them. "Ah! S-sir!"
She grinned at them. "Unless you want to share with me what you were talking about or exactly why you both are so late, I suggest you get to work." She lifted a pile of paperwork with a smirk at them and dropped it on Dragomir's desk. "But because I'm nice, or perhaps because I know you will anyway, I'll let you work together."
"Um- Thank you, sir," Niles replied, watching her skip back over to her desk. As he smiled up at Dragomir and they got to work, he shrugged to himself. He guess some things he would never understand.
