The room was unnaturally quiet when Josh awoke. He was used to David snoring, so the new perfect silence worried him slightly. The room was bright, and it took Josh ten minutes to decide whether to open his eyes or not. Risking it, he decided to open one first, but the other quickly snapped open when it struck him that he wasn't in his room. He felt his heart rate increase for a moment until he felt the warmth behind him; the soft, warm breaths on his neck; the arm draped over his chest. Turning back, Josh was given the answer he wished for - Kevin.
The dark haired mutant slept peacefully, his eyelashes flat to his cheeks and his lips parted a small amount. Josh shifted onto his back to watch his boyfriend, a small smile on his face. It was only now he noticed how much of a mess Kevin's room was. Their clothes from the night before were strewn over numerous different surfaces around the room. Josh's smile grew when he noticed one of Kevin's gloves lying loosely off the edge of the top of the closet. He smirked at the memory. You definitely won't be needing these! he had laughed, tugging off the gloves and tossing them forcefully behind him. Only now did he actually see where they ended up.
"Josh..." Kevin murmured into the pillow, eyes still closed.
"Morning, lover boy." Josh smirked, kissing his boyfriend awake.
"Oh..." Kevin yawned, stretching out his arms and forcing his eyes open. "Hi."
"How did you sleep?" Josh stroked Kevin's hair softly, sighing peacefully.
"Good. I seem to have woken up with a delicious - and very naked - boyfriend in my bed, though." Kevin pushed a kiss to Josh's cheek. "When did you choose to stay?"
Originally, they had agreed that Josh would sneak back to his room after they'd had their fun, to avoid people finding out about them.
"You fell asleep straight after and you just looked too adorable to leave." A smile tugged at the corner of Josh's mouth at the memory. "So, I texted David and decided to stay the night."
"You texted David?" Kevin frowned, pulling back a little.
"Something along the lines of 'I've pulled. Cover for me.'" Josh teased, smirking.
"Hey!" Kevin punched Josh on the arm, laughing. "So, I'm just another one of your conquests, Foley?"
"Oh no, Mr Ford. My conquests are generally one night things." Josh leaned in, lowering his voice to a whisper. "And last night was far too much fun to enjoy just once."
"You're such a slut." Kevin chuckled, allowing his eyes to fall closed again.
"So, you're saying you didn't enjoy last night?" Josh asked smugly, staring up at the ceiling with an arrogant smile. Of course, he knew the answer.
"No! Last night was..." Kevin sighed with satisfaction at the memory. "Wow."
"I know." Josh kissed Kevin quickly, before pulling back and standing from the bed, searching pointlessly for his uniform.
"Where are you going?" Kevin moaned, burying his face in the pillow slightly.
"It's ten thirty. I have class. So do you." Josh laughed a little, making his way over to Kevin's dresser. "I'm borrowing some underwear."
"Can't you just wear the same ones you had on yesterday? You look good in them." Kevin's voice became quieter as he started to submit to sleep again.
"No, that's disgusting." Josh picked up his day-old boxers from the floor and threw them at Kevin's head. "Get up."
"Eww! What the hell?!" Kevin complained, sitting up in the bed. "I'm up! I'm up!"
Josh, now wearing Kevin's favourite boxers, collected Kevin's Hellions Squad uniform from the other side of the room and made his way over to the bed. Sitting on the edge, he leant back, pushed the clothes to Kevin's chest and kissed him lightly.
"Get dressed, Kev, or I swear we'll never get away from this bed." Josh whispered, a sexy smile on his lips.
"I'm okay with that." Kevin kissed his boyfriend passionately.
"Be good." Josh ordered softly, standing again and walking over to his uniform which had been hastily discarded below the window.
"But that's no fun." Kevin complained, watching - and enjoying - every movement Josh made. "And you can't wear those, they're my favourites!"
"They suit me better." Josh shrugged, shaking out the body suit of his uniform.
"I'm not arguing that..." Kevin murmured, not loud enough for Josh to hear. He bit his lip as he continued to watch the other boy, his eyes trailing over every inch of his boyfriend's flawless, nearly naked body.
"Quit staring, Ford." Josh commanded, smirking to himself proudly and stepping into his uniform.
"I'm not." Kevin lied, finally starting to get dressed. Josh quickly retrieved the mirror from the nightstand and started touching up his hair.
"If you say so." He mumbled mindlessly, frowning at his still grey lips. Focusing his mind on the discolouration, he watched them quickly return to a perfect gold.
"Can't we just skip class and stay here? It's only one day!" Kevin begged, standing and scanning the room for his jacket.
"I hadn't been to class for the past two weeks, before yesterday, so it's not only one day. And I bet it's the same for you." Josh leant against the nightstand watching Kevin with a proud smirk.
"Josh!" Kevin moaned, elongating the vowel and pouting.
"Kev!" Josh mimicked Kevin's speech.
"Can't we just stick around here for a little longer?" Kevin donned his cutest expression.
"Well, hand-to-hand doesn't actually start until eleven, so I guess we could just-"
"Great." Kevin took the mirror from Josh, despite the other boy's resistance, and dropped it onto the bed.
"You're so narcissistic." He laughed.
"Shut up." Josh pouted.
"Make me." Kevin dared in a seductive whisper, stepping closer. Josh raised his eyebrows, surprised - and a little turned on - by Kevin's new attitude. He threw his arms around the other boy's shoulders and kissed him passionately. He moaned a little at the now familiar, and extremely addictive, sensation.
"There." Josh smirked, pulling back a little. "Much better."
"I love you, Josh." Kevin smiled, looking deep into Josh's eyes.
"I know." Josh's smile softened a little as he ran his fingers through Kevin's messy, brown hair. "I love you too."
"Kiss me again?" Kevin blushed.
"Why do you think you even need to ask?" Josh laughed, joining their lips once again. He quickly depended the kiss. They had to be in class in fifteen minutes, and he wasn't in the mood for precious kisses. Josh Foley was in the mood for something hot. He wrapped his arms around Kevin's waist, while Kevin pushed his hands into Josh's hair.
"Hey, I just fixed that!" Josh complained, smirking.
"What was I saying about you being narcissistic?" Kevin bit his lip to suppress laughter.
"I swear your accent is the most adorable thing." Ignoring Kevin's statement, Josh tilted his head, curious to why he loved the way Kevin spoke so much.
"Firstly, I'm not adorable." Kevin's words adopted a warning tone. "And secondly, what accent? I don't have an accent! You're the one with the New Yorker twang."
"No, you've got that Georgia tone. It's so cute. All southern and sexy." Josh bit his lip, stepping impossibly closer to Kevin's body. "Say my name?"
"Why?" Kevin laughed a little, confused by Josh's fascination.
"Because I like the way your voice sounds." Josh smiled sweetly. "Please?"
"Fine." Kevin rolled his eyes and began kissing Josh's neck before dropping his voice to a sexy whisper. "I want you, Josh Foley."
Butterflies seemed to erupt in Josh's stomach at the sound of the words and he pushed Kevin back onto the bed, straddling his hips and kissing him.
"If I knew it was that easy to make you want me, I would've started a long time ago." Kevin laughed as Josh kissed down his neck.
"Stupid uniform." Josh murmured to himself when his reached the neckline. "Stupid class."
"You're insane." Kevin ran his fingers through his boyfriend's hair, shaking his head a little, amused.
"Why are you so hot?" Josh complained, dropping to lie on the bed beside Kevin with a sigh.
"I'm sorry?" Kevin laughed, taking Josh's hand and kissing his knuckles.
"You should be. How am I supposed to concentrate in our hand-to-hand combat class now?" Josh turned his head to look at his boyfriend.
"Josh, you can kill with a touch. We both can. If we're close enough to practice hand-to-hand on someone, we're closer enough to use our powers, which will be far more effective." Kevin spoke quickly, his mind far more occupied by the way Josh's chest rose and fell with each breath. Everything about Josh's body entranced him.
"Don't be lazy, Kev." Josh laughed.
"Oh? So, I'm lazy now?" Kevin raised his eyebrows, smirking.
"You didn't seem to think so last night."
"Oh, no. You were very active last night." Josh bit his lip at the memory, shifting onto his side to face Kevin.
"You weren't so bad yourself." They kissed quickly, before a knock at the door interrupted them.
"Hey, Kev." Julian's voice spoke up. "You gonna be in hand-to-hand today? The New Mutants are getting a little too comfortable with themselves. We need you back on the team."
"Yeah, sure. I'll be there." Kevin called back, amused by the way Josh bit his lip to suppress smug laughter.
"Thanks, man. I'll see you there." Hearing Julian's retreating footsteps, Josh allowed himself to laugh.
"Sleeping with the enemy, Mr Ford?" Josh teased. "You naughty, little Hellion."
"You're a very hypocritical New Mutant, you know that?" Kevin retorted, kissing Josh softly.
"So, Julian thinks we're getting 'too comfortable'?" Josh smirked smugly.
"I guess so." Kevin rolled his eyes at Josh's proud attitude.
"So now, Hellion's expecting his Hellions to put us back in our place. How cute."
"Hey! You're dating one of those Hellions!" Kevin laughed, leaning into to kiss Josh, before standing from the bed and retrieving his jacket, which he had recently located under the bed.
"Yeah... I guess I am." Smiling, Josh sat up, taking his boots from where the lay beside the nightstand and slipped them onto his feet. Standing, he scanned the room. "Hey, you seen my gloves?"
"Did I ever tell you how hot you look in your uniform?" Kevin took Josh into his arms.
"No, you didn't." Josh smirked, kissing Kevin once.
"Well, you looking really damn hot, Elixir." Kevin whispered.
"Ugh!" Josh moaned. "We have class in four minutes and I want nothing more than to repeat last night."
"I think we have time for just one kiss." Kevin had barely finished the sentence before Josh was kissing him again. "I love you, Josh Foley."
"Stop using the sexy accent trick on me." Josh smirked, before deepening the kiss. He pulled Kevin closer and ran his hands over the other boy's muscular arms, moaning slightly.
"And..." Kevin pushed Josh back, smirking. "That's all you get for now."
"You're such a tease." Josh complained.
"Here," Kevin tossed one of Josh's yellow gloves to him as he walked around the bed to retrieve his boots. "It was in my jacket pocket."
"How did it..."
"Hmm..." Josh contemplated how they could cover so much space whilst undressing each other. He quickly retrieved his other glove and both of Kevin's before heading over to his boyfriend and dropping the black gloves into his lap.
"Thanks." Kevin smiled a perfect smile that seemed to make Josh melt.
"Okay, I'm gonna go. Remember - you hate me." Josh over emphasized the words in a teasing manner.
"That shouldn't be so hard." Kevin smirked to himself.
"Oh? Still maintaining you hate me?" Josh raised his eyebrows. "Didn't seem to act like it last night, lover boy."
"Shut up." Kevin laughed, standing from the bed as Josh began to walk away. "Oh, and, Elixir?"
"Mmhmm?" Josh turned back.
"Lips." Kevin smirked. Josh brought his hand up to his mouth, thankful Kevin had reminded him of the grey tone on his lips. He closed his eyes and concentrated on them for a moment.
"Perfect." Kevin smiled, coming up behind him. He pulled down the neck of Josh's uniform and placed a kiss on his back. "I'm gonna try extra hard to say your name whenever I can today, Elixir." He teased, slightly emphasizing his accent.
"Whatever." Josh shrugged, attempting to persuade himself that Kevin's voice didn't get to him. "Just remember I'm wearing your underwear. You can keep that image in your head all day, darkness."
"I hate you." Kevin laughed.
