The next morning came too damn soon for Roy Mustang. The sunlight streaming in the large window caused him to blink a couple of times and rub his eyes. His head pounded just a little from the alcohol he had consumed the night before. He rolled to his side like he usually did to get out of bed and relieve himself, when his eyes widened. There was a blonde laying in the bed next to him, his hair was tossled and he looked so damn peaceful, for once.
Quickly he rolled to the other side, trying as much as he could not to disturb the sleepyhead beside him. He managed to get out of bed, only making Ed shift a little in his sleep. He ambled to the bathroom, his just a little bit lighter than it had been the previous day, though the weight of yesterday still weighed heavily in his mind.
Stepping into the shower, he let the hot water and steam relax his tense muscles and clear his cloudy mind. In the last 24 hours he had not only buried his best friend, the man that he had secretly loved, but he had seduced an underage subordinate officer. "Wherever Maes is now, he must be wishing he could smack some sense into me, for several reasons." he said absently, pressing his head to the side of the shower. Tears came unbidden to his eyes. "I am so sorry, Maes. I never told you how much you meant to me!" He sunk to his knees, the hot water no longer soothing him.
Roy wasn't even aware that he had left the door cracked. He didn't hear he light knock on the door. "Colonel, are you in there?" Ed said softly, while gently pushing the door open. He gasped, not sure how to grasp what he saw. Here was his commanding officer, naked in the shower, kneeling and crying. He turned quickly to leave, but it was too late. His hand caught something on the counter and knocked it over with a clank, alerting the colonel to his presence.
"Oh... I.. Um... er.." Ed turned as red as he had when he found out the colonel had seen him in his boxers. He nervously scratched behind his head, wishing he was about anywhere but here. He wasn't sure it could ever get any more awkward that at this moment.
Roy sniffled a couple of times, then stood up, his back to Ed. "I... I am sorry you have to see me like this." he softly admitted. He reached over to turn off the water, when a much smaller metal hand touched his while he held the spigot.
"Colonel.... er... Roy. last night.. You were touching me.. and it felt nice... And then... we went to the bedroom, but.. well.. it just didn't feel right. I think we both felt it. At first, I was pissed that you didn't do anything else. But now that I think about it, it didn't feel the same. I don't know why. But.. well.. it felt nice sleeping next to you, even if you did have more clothes on than I did." He took a deep breath, steadying himself for what he was going to say next. "But.. I.. still want to explore with you. If... you still feel the same way."
The older alchemist was quiet for a second. Ed was about to move his hand and back away, when, with one fluid and apparently practiced movement, Roy grabbed Ed's hand and pulled him into the shower, boxers and all. He didn't even have time to 'eep' before Roy had the much shorter alchemist pinned against the wall of the shower. One hand pinned both of Ed's hands above his head, and the other deftly pulled the now soaked boxers to his ankles.
"So, you still think you want more, huh? " Roy had an almost sadistic look on his face. "Let's see if you are MAN enough to handle it."
Ed got an angry look on his face. He opened his mouth so speak, but anything he was going to say was drained out of him when Roy kneeled in front of him and quickly pulled down the shorter alchemist's boxer shorts to his ankles. Roy immediately put a hand on Ed's member, already slightly engorged with a need to relieve himself, and not helped by seeing his colonel naked in the shower. A firm hand grasped his length and stroked a couple of times softly.
His legs felt like they were going to give out from under him. He slapped his metal hand against the small tiles of the shower, making a loud ringing noise and sending small spidery cracks racing through the wall. Ed didn't seem to even notice, but it made Roy pause for a moment.
"Careful, Fullmetal. I don't want you breaking all my stuff!" Roy snapped, momentarily pulled away from what he had just been doing. "Good lord, I can't take you anywhere, can I?" Roy looked up, his black eyes fuming. He opened his mouth to yell again, when Ed suddenly bent down, pressing his face to Roy's. thier lips met in a hard, fast, awkward kiss. Roy's eyes went wide, his breath caught in this throat. He didn't pull away in one second, or even five.
When Ed finally had to break the kiss to take a few deep breaths, Roy wasted no time in pulling him right back to him, using one had to push his head back and expose his neck, and his other hand started to wander down the right side where metal met flesh. Soft nibbles went down Ed's neck, alternating between licks and bites. Roy's expert hand quickly found the sole nipple, remembering even through his alcoholic haze how sensitive it had been.
The same two fingers that sent men to thier deaths sent Ed to heaven, so it seemed. He gasped, and his metal hand dug into the now broken tile with a high pitched squeak, but this time neither of them cared. Awkwardly his human hand found Roy's back. Fingers kneaded deeply into flesh, causing Roy to hiss in pleasure. That just encouraged him more. His bites got harder on Ed's neck, drawing a couple of tiny beads of blood.
"C-c-areful you b-b-bastard" Ed whimpered, no real threat behind his voice. Roy paused at his biting, leaning up to give Ed a soft kiss on the lips. He didn't say a word, but he kneeled down again, like he had when he first pulled Ed into the shower. But this time, he put his hands on the tiled shower on either side of Ed's hips, pinning him to the wall. His mouth went to the younger alchemist's swelled member. Ed's eyes closed and his breath came ragged.
"Oh... R-r-roy..." he soflty panted. Roy shivered again.. No matter how many times ed said his name, it never got any less beautiful. It never made him shiver with pleasure any less. It just urged Roy on even more. Eagerly he took the tip of Ed in his mouth and suckled lightly, like a boy with a popsicle stick. His tongue darted across the head and underneath, on the little ridge that he knew just drives a man wild.
"Oh.... GOD!" Ed screeched, and Roy couldn't help but smile at the irony of him calling out to a God that he obviously didnt believe in. Ed bucked his hips reflexively, and Roy got his first tiny droplets of juice. He knew the boy would only last a few more moments, so he sped up his movements.
Fighting his gag reflex, he took more of the youth into his mouth. This was the only place that Ed was much larger than the rest of his small size belayed, and Roy couldnt quite get all of his new lover inside, but must have been enough for Ed. It took only a couple of second before Ed cried out "ROOOOOOY!!" and pushed his thin hips forward one more time, spilling his seed inside Roy's waiting mouth.
Ever so gently, Roy licked at the quickly retreating length. He wanted to get it nice and clean (despite the now lukewarm water) but not overstimulate the boy on his first time. He was guessing that there would be time for that later. He took a deep breath and licked his lips before the water claimed the last tastes of this new love, and stood up, gently caressing the panting boy's hair.
"So, Ed. Do you think think that this is what you want?" He stayed quiet for a moment, waiting for the poor kid to catch his breath before he could even think about answering. Roy tried to pass the awkward moments of silence by thinking about all the things that he could teach this young man, if indeed he had enjoyed what had just happened. When Ed stayed quiet, Roy started to worry. His hand gently caressed the younger man's face, pushing his chin up gently to lock eyes, gold to black.
"Ed?" Roy asked nervously, his voice breaking a little, Ed's eyes were closed. He couldn't read what this boy was thinking, and it scared him. "Ed.. did I... scare you?" he asked, taking a step away, ready to leave the shower if the younger alchemist needed time to think.
Ed's eyes popped open wide for a moment, and he took a quick step forward, planting a long, languishing kiss on Roy's lips. It was hard to tell if he was crying, or if it was the water from the shower, but his eyes were just a little red. The kiss was less awkward than the first, prompting Roy to think that if this kid really is that fast of a learner, then he may be in for some interesting times, if this indeed continue.
He finally broke the kiss and looked deep into Roy's onyx eyes. "It is all I wanted.. and more..." Ed trailed off, not sure what else he could say, what else needed to be said. They stood there, just inches apart, barely touching for a few moments. Roy gently put his arms around his new lover and held on tight, burying his head on Ed's automail shoulder. He had looked to Ed like 100 pounds of pressure had eased off his shoulders. His eyes sparkled for the first time since he had lost his best friend, and there was a smile, a genuine smile, on his face.
