Chapter Four: Love's Desire
It was late when they returned to Kriss's apartment, Kriss throwing down his keys and walking into the kitchen as Reggy looked around curiously. He'd only been here a few times and never long enough to get a proper look.
"Do you want a coffee?" Kriss called.
"No thanks," Reggy shouted as he studied Kriss's music collection with interest, an array of different sounds. Reggy smiled and thought, a man of many likes.
"Anything to eat which isn't burnt?"
Reggy smirked. "No."
"Well, what do you want?" Kriss asked from just behind him, his voice amused. Reggy turned to smile at him and wrapped his arms around Kriss's waist securely.
"You," he replied softly, dipping his head for a kiss which started out gentle but quickly turned intense. Reggy moved forward and pushed Kriss up against the wall, pinning his hands above his head as they continued to kiss frantically. He felt light-headed, both with desire and a lack of oxygen, and he was harder than he could ever remember being before. He was pleased to feel an answering hardness against his leg as he mapped every part of Kriss's mouth with his tongue.
Kriss abruptly broke the kiss, looking flushed and thoroughly ravishing. "Easy tiger," he panted.
"Well it's your fault...you shouldn't be so damn sexy," Reggy replied, trailing kisses down his neck.
Kriss rested his head back against the wall and closed his eyes in pleasure, gasping when Reggy gently bit down on his pulse point. Reggy couldn't get enough of the taste and feel of Kriss, sliding his hands down Kriss's arms and lifting his shirt up to gain access to more of his soft skin. When his hands started working on Kriss's pants, however, Kriss grabbed them and waited for Reggy to look into his eyes before saying seriously, "Are you sure?"
"I've never been more sure of anything in my life," Reggy replied firmly before diving back in for another kiss. Kriss had evidently been holding back up to that point because, when he heard the certainty in Reggy's voice, he sprang to life; kissing Reggy back with renewed vigor and ripping his shirt open to reveal a nicely toned torso. Reggy was only too happy to let him take the lead, moaning as Kriss's fingers danced across his skin, every part of his body screaming for his touch.
Never breaking the kiss, Kriss opened Reggy's pants; one hand working lower until his fingers closed around Reggy's rock hard erection. Reggy felt a jolt of pleasure rush through him and jerked uncontrollably, Kriss smiling against his lips as he began tortuously slow strokes. Reggy hadn't got any further than undoing the button on Kriss's pants, his mission completely forgotten when Kriss's talented hands had begun to work on him, but now he attacked Kriss's clothes desperately, needing to see and feel more of him.
Reggy gasped, breaking the kiss, as Kriss squeezed him gently and slightly increased his pace. "I'm not gonna last long if you keep doing that Kriss," he warned breathlessly and Kriss grinned wickedly.
Deciding it was payback time Reggy latched onto Kriss's neck and reached down to grasp him firmly, evoking a deep moan from Kriss who's hand faltered slightly in its task. Reggy sucked and nipped his way back up to Kriss's mouth, as his hand copied Kriss's movements, pausing a moment to enjoy the effect it was having on Kriss who was squeezing his eyes shut and breathing erratically. As Reggy watched, Kriss suddenly opened his eyes and looked at him with fiery desire.
"Bed," he growled.
It didn't take long for them to be lying naked and sweaty together, their hands and lips touching and caressing every inch of skin. Soft moans and gasps filled the room as they finally became one, gradually increasing in volume and intensity as they approached the end. The fact that they'd waited so long made it all the more exquisite and when they both finally tumbled over the edge with equally loud shouts of joy, Reggy looked into Kriss's eyes and was momentarily awed by their beauty; seeing into the depths of Kriss's very soul. He felt a tidal wave of emotion overwhelm him as he shuddered his ecstasy; knowing without a doubt that, after years of waiting, he'd found the person he was meant to be with.
A little while later, as they lay happily wrapped around each other in post-orgasmic bliss, Reggy studied Kriss's relaxed face. He had his eyes closed so Reggy took the opportunity to memorize every detail without feeling awkward.
"Kriss?" he said softly after several minutes.
"Mmm," Kriss said sleepily without opening his eyes.
Reggy tried to get the words straight in his head before he spoke, then took a deep breath. "I know we haven't been together for very long, and I say this with absolutely no expectations, but....," he paused, trying to work up the courage to continue, "I'm in love with you."
Kriss's eyes snapped open and he gazed at Reggy, noting the apprehensive look in his eyes as he waited for a response. He felt his heart swell, lifting a hand to gently caress Reggy's face with a radiant smile before pulling him into the most tender of kisses. After a few moments he pulled back a little, letting his emotions shine through his eyes, and whispered one word.
Reggy was woken up the next morning by a gentle kiss and opened his eyes sleepily to see Kriss perched on the edge of the bed, already in his uniform.
"Morning sleepy," Kriss said, smiling softly.
Reggy groaned and rubbed his eyes. Judging by the dim light coming through the blinds it was still early, way too early to even think about getting up. On the pretense of stretching he swiftly grabbed Kriss's arms and yanked him forward so that he was lying down half on top of him. Then he wrapped his arms around him securely and snuggled into him contentedly.
Kriss chuckled and ran his fingers through Reggy's dark curls. "I've gotta go Reg, I've got the early shift today."
Reggy grumbled and tightened his hold. "Let's just call in sick and stay in bed all day."
"I wish we could," Kriss sighed, "but, unfortunately, there are people counting on both of us."
"Fuck 'em, I want to be with you," Reggy replied, kissing Kriss's neck. He paused for a moment then added with a smirk, "I could always handcuff you to the bed." He felt more than heard Kriss's answering laughter.
"I always suspected you had a kinky side Reg," he snorted, "but I really have got to go. I'll see you tonight though, okay?"
Reggy lifted his head to give Kriss a tender kiss then reluctantly released him with a smile. "Be careful," he called as Kriss went to the door.
Kriss turned and smiled back. "Stay safe," he replied.
Reggy found it almost impossible to wipe the grin off his face that morning. Greg, of course, called him on it the moment he walked in.
"Well, someone got lucky last night."
Reggy cheerfully flipped him the finger and settled down to work, unable to keep his thoughts away from Kriss for more than a few minutes.
