Note 2: The story is dedicated and somehow requested by lilly0, but she has no idea what it is about. She had to choose between numbers and letters, and each was a pairing and setting, and so 2-B-white is Tackey/Ryo, AU and crime. ^^ And thanks for choosing a title to sweetspicyhot
Ryo was still sitting on the couch and the other one's sparkling and kind of burning eyes were reflected in his mind. He didn't know why and how, but in this moment he had to act, because his cowardice and shyness destroyed the last chances he had, but this time it was something really important to him, even though he didn't know the other one very long.
He thought of a kind of fate which brought them together in this case. He stood up and walked to Tackey's sleeping room knocking there slowly. He heard a silent “yes” from the inside and opened the door, finding Tackey lying in his bed, reading a book.
“Can I come in?” Tackey nodded at him and Ryo slipped in walking up to the other one's bed. He cursed himself for not making a plan what to say, but it was too late now, he had to improvise something. “I saw your eyes, Tackey.” What a great sentence, Ryo thought in this moment, and swallowed the knot in his throat.
“Is it betraying to think about my own luck when my niece is somewhere outside, and she's maybe already dead?” Tackey put the book on the drawer and sat up. “I think it's okay to have someone who cares about you and your feelings. It doesn't mean that you aren't worried to death, and going mad step by step, but you have to look at yourself too.” Ryo shrugged his shoulders and waited for an answer, but Tackey was staring at the blanket on his knees. Ryo could see that he was thinking about his words, and he was definitely not sure how to act right now.
Tackey looked finally up at him and smiled slightly. His thoughts were still spinning around, but when he saw Ryo's warm and gentle eyes resting on him, he knew that he needed some comfort and someone who cared about him and his current situation. He was a loner, but everyone would have needed some warmth and love in the position he was right now.
He looked up and pulled on Ryo's arm, who stumbled a bit and sat on the border of the bed. Is it really okay for me to act like this?... Tackey tried to push away the thoughts which were hitting him and just stroked softly above Ryo's cheek.
Ryo closed his eyes and forgot about the fear and problems he had during past and tried to enjoy the moment he got to know here. He could think about everything later, but now he wanted to concentrate on these minutes, he wanted to feel those touches and strokes, the wanted to experience the feeling of being loved and comforted during this night. And maybe he could give a little bit of this feeling back to the other one, so that Tackey could lean on him at least for this moment.
He saw Tackey sitting up in the bed and felt him hugging him closely. His hand was wandering down Ryo's back ,sending shivers down his spine. Ryo didn't know when someone touched him that gentle for the last time and leaned into the embrace to let the other one pulling him down on the bed. He felt Tackey next to him and closed his eyes when the other one's lips caressed his face and he started to place butterfly kisses here and there.
He felt his belly twisting in joy when Tackey's lips roamed above his and he finally kissed him gently. For just some moments Tackey was able to forget about the sorrow and worry he felt in these moments and just leaned into the warm and comfortable feeling Ryo gave him here. It was like they got together because of fate, and Ryo got totally lost in this moment.
Tackey felt the goose bumps on Ryo's skin when he drove some small circles above it and he smiled when he heard the other one's deep breathes.
Ryo concentrated on Tackey's moves and got lost in the feeling of burning fire and unbanned explosions in his body when the other one started to move in him. It was a feeling he never got to know before. Every experience he made was different from this one. It felt so real and deep, even though they hardly knew each other.
Ryo woke up late at night and for the first time since years he felt content and calm – his inner restlessness was almost gone and he smiled slightly when he felt the other one's hand around his waist. He took it and felt Tackey grasping his hand, crossing their fingers. Ryo stroked softly above the other one's palm and closed his eyes to find some sleep.
Tackey saw that Ryo was awake, but he didn't want to say something in this moment. He saw him smiling slightly and he knew it was the right thing they did. Even though the whole situation he was in was nearly unbearable for him, he had a helping hand next to him now, and somehow he knew it could work out. He felt Ryo taking his hand, and crossed his fingers with the other one's. It felt good and correct what they did, and that made him finding at least some hours of sleep.
Ryo woke up early in the morning and first of all he thought that everything was a dream, but when he turned around he could see that he was in Tackey's room, but the other one was already gone. He stood up and walked into the living where he saw Tackey sitting on the couch. “We have a problem.” he only said and saw Ryo blinking at him.
Ryo's heart beat faster than ever before, because he thought that Tackey wanted to forget about everything they shared during the last night, but when he saw the pictures and the letter on the table, he knew what Tackey meant.
“What the hell?” He took them from there and looked at one after the other.
“I don't know why and how, but that's not good Ryo.” Tackey sighed deeply and rubbed his temples.
“Why can't I be happy for just some time in my life. Why does something happen every time when I am content and happy? Why are they always destroying everything which is dear to me.” Ryo yelled and felt the tears coming up in him.
Tackey blinked at him, because he didn't count with such an outburst and stood up to calm the other one down, when Ryo started to throw the pictures across the apartment.
“Gosh, Ryo, calm down.” He grasped for the other one's arm and pulled him closer. “Calm down, please”, he said again and stroked softly above the other one's back. “We will manage this.”
Ryo sobbed and felt his heart beat normalized again. He was glad that Tackey didn't mean to break up when he talked about “having a problem” and he just tried to get some of the warmth he felt last night. Tackey breathed in deeply and dissolved from the other one, but still looked deep into his eyes. “I make some coffee now, and you try to find something out, without any thought of the problem that might occur now, okay?” Tackey took Ryo's head in his hands and placed a soft kiss on his lips, before he went into the kitchen.
He stood up early in the morning and saw the envelope lying on the corridor floor. He walked up and opened it, already knowing that it wasn't something good in it. He saw the picture of him and Ryo during the last night and the letter which said that everyone would get to know about them. Tackey had no idea how to prevent this, but they had to stay calm now, it was senseless to overreact now, and to run crazy, because it wouldn't help them.
He took the cups when suddenly a thought hit him. He walked back to the living room and saw Ryo sitting on his computer, analyzing the pictures. He looked at them, one after the other and tried to figure out where they were taken. Someone must have observed them during the last night, and someone took pictures of them, but where?
He walked back to his sleeping room and saw nothing but Ryo's coat and jeans lying above the chair.
“Ryo, did you bring the coat from your apartment yesterday evening?” Tackey turned around to face Ryo who nodded at him. “I think I got it...”he whispered and saw Ryo staring at him. He took the coat from there and carried it back to the living room. He searched around and found a small hole in the corner of the right side.
“Bingo...”, he smiled and grasped into it, before he pulled out a tiny little thing.
