Mercury Rising : Part Seven
by Jana

Nearly a week had passed since the apparent lesson in behavior Duo had given me in the kitchen and not much had really changed since then. We continued what had now become our almost daily sexual explorations. Though they didn't take us beyond where we'd ventured before, I did notice that Duo seemed more anxious for things to move forward. His subtle hints didn't go unnoticed and while I tried to be impassive, I was certain that I revealed my nearing readiness to him.

I hadn't given much thought to how I'd know when I would be ready, nor did I try to discern what it was that was keeping me from taking the next step. Duo had pretty much left the decision in my hands and somehow I just figured that when the time was right...I would know. It was not an inaccurate assumption.

I'd turned out the light about 1:00, but sleep escaped me that night as it had so many others of late. I tossed and turned, finally rolling over onto my side and looking out the window toward the guest house.

I could see the light on in the kitchen through the slim blinds and couldn't help but wonder what he was doing in there, getting a drink, having a snack? As my mind supplied me with images of him in the small room, my thoughts turned to what he might be wearing as he was doing whatever it was he was doing. I was venturing into dangerous territory here but as always, unwilling to stop. It wouldn't surprise me if he slept naked, that thought giving me a crystal clear picture of him stretched out and unadorned on the king sized bed. I took it one step further, envisioning him aroused as well and felt my own cock rising to the occasion.

I don't know how long I lay there filling my time with sexy thoughts of him, it could have been hours. I never tired of the endless fantasies having Duo as a lover invoked and I indulged myself fully in each and every one, masturbating to relieve the ever present ache he roused in me. I was lost in one such scenario when I saw the light come on in the pool. I propped myself up to take a closer look and set my sights on Duo exiting the front door and making his way toward the pool. It didn't take me very long to decide that I was going to join him.

I stood in my bathing suit right outside the white gate that separated the yard from the pool area and watched him for several minutes. The area was well guarded by darkness and I approached quietly so that I could take in his activities unnoticed. He was swimming laps, his body no more than just a darkened shadow as it moved through the glowing blue water, his hair pulled back into a ponytail and trailing behind him as if an entity of its own. I watched as he resurfaced near the ladder at the deep end of the pool and cleared my throat to announce my presence.

He looked in my direction as the sound reached his ears, but I knew that he was unable to see me. "That you, Heero?"

I smiled but remained still.

He swam across the pool, bringing himself closer to the gate where I stood. "If you want to play games, Heero....I'm sure we can come up with something better than hide and seek."

I stepped out of the darkness, opening the metal latch and walking toward where he was leaning against the side of the pool. "What did you have in mind?"

He reached up and tugged playfully at the leg of my trunks. "Whatever it is, it involves the water. Get in."

I seated myself near him and set my towel down behind me, letting my legs dangle over the edge. "It's cold."

"Warm once you get in. Don't be a wuss."

"A wuss?"

He laughed and I dove in from my seated position, making sure I kicked up enough water in his direction as I started to swim the length of the pool.

I'd reached the far side and gripped the coping as I came up for air, startled as he swam up behind me and burst up from under the water. "Wanna race?"

I looked at him for a moment and watched him push aside the curtain of hair that covered his face before nodding. "Three laps, freestyle."

"Cool. And what does the winner get?"

I raised one eyebrow in response to his unexpected question. "Winner gets the loser," I shot back.

He looked fairly stunned, I stifled my smirk. "No good?" They were pretty high stakes, especially for him.

"Gets in what way?"

"Afraid you're going to lose?"

He smirked. "No."

Cocky is the word that came to mind. "Then on the count of three."

We kicked off simultaneously and I'd reached the other side of the pool first, with him trailing me by only a second or two. I tried to pace myself so that I'd have enough energy for a sprint at the final leg of the last lap. I considered myself a fairly fast swimmer and that he was able to keep up with me surprised me a bit.

I turned as I hit the edge and pushed off the side with as much power as I could, noting he was still within inches of me. Halfway through the last length I quickened my pace and turned to see him moving out in front of me. I gave it my all, but had apparently underestimated his abilities and his hand gripped the coping a full second or two before mine did.

I brought myself into an upright position and caught my breath, watching him as he did the same, pushing his hair back over his shoulders. "Good race." He smiled.

"You're fast."

"Thanks." He winked. "You gave me a pretty good run for my money."

I leaned back against the edge of the pool and he positioned himself in front of me, moving his head forward to kiss me hard, thrusting his tongue into my mouth. I responded by pushing my hips off the side of the pool and grinding them into his. We were both well on our way to being fully aroused. He moved back from the kiss for a second. "You make a great prize," he moaned, slipping his hand into the front of my bathing suit and recommencing his attack on my mouth.

I moaned as he formed a fist around my cock with one hand, the other moving down my back and into my bathing suit as well, his fingers immediately finding their target. He pulled back again, questioning me in deep lusty voice. "Is this what you had in mind, Heero?" he asked, pushing one more finger up inside me. I nodded and tossed my head back. His mouth seemed drawn to my now exposed neck and he sucked roughly on it, concentrating his efforts in one place.

"I'm willing to give you just about anything you want."

I shivered as he whispered those words in my ear.

"You know that. Don't you?" he asked softly, accentuating his words with sharpened movements of both his hands.

I did know. I also knew that he wanted it too, perhaps even more than I did and I whispered my response. "Mmhm. Let's go inside"

He nodded and I hoisted myself up to sit on the edge of the pool once he'd released me, immediately taking my towel in hand and drying myself off. I watched as he climbed up the ladder and seated himself at the bottom the chaise lounge. He grabbed his towel and ignored his body, removing what water he could from his hair first instead. I made no attempt to hide the fact that I was watching him as I blindly toweled myself off in the distance.

He rose and bent to run the towel up and down the length of his legs; standing to face me once he'd finished. "Ready?"

There was only a minimal amount of hesitation as I followed him inside, despite the fact that I knew what was about to happen.

I closed the door and walked behind him as he entered the kitchen. "Something to drink?"

"A beer?"

I was waiting for him to make some sort of a comment...or give me a look, but neither came as he handed me one. I twisted the cap off and lifted the bottle to my lips. He took a swig of his beer and sat it down on the counter before moving to stand behind me. He brought his mouth down to my ear and whispered his question, "Do you want me to fuck you, Heero?"

I moaned as he pushed his hips forward and leaned back against his chest. "I think you do," he continued. "I think that's why you came out here tonight...and why you intentionally lost the race."

It was why I'd come. I hadn't let him win the race though, but there was no point in mentioning that, it had little to do with what was about to happen. I could feel the hardness of his cock pressed against my rear through the thin fabric of his Speedo.

"You have to tell me what you want."

I recalled him telling me that before. I struggled to formulate a coherent response.

"Do you want me inside you, Heero?"

Yes. That was exactly what I wanted. My breathing grew more labored and I nodded.

He grit his teeth and ground his hips into me. "Words, Yuy. I want to hear you say the words."

I swallowed hard and tried to disguise my rising desperation. "I need you, Duo...I...need you to fuck me, Duo...please..."

Those were apparently the words he was waiting for and we somehow ended up in the bedroom, though I don't recall physically walking there.

He was kissing me again and I felt the back of my knees hit the mattress before falling backward and landing on the bed with him on top of me. He pressed his hips downward and shifted them against mine. I probably didn't need to tell him the effect it was having on me, but I pushed him away and did anyway. "Duo....don't...I'm too close..."

He brought himself to a seated position on my thighs and laid both his hands on my stomach, moving them slowly upward toward my chest. "So very responsive," he whispered, teasing both of my nipples with too light touches. I shuddered and lifted my hips up off the bed in a show of impatience.

He climbed off me and reached into the nightstand drawer, producing the same small bottle as he did last time. He motioned with his eyes that I should take my bathing suit off and I did, dropping it to the floor beside the bed before I looked over at him. "What now?"

He smirked. "Up onto your knees." He seated himself on the bed and thoroughly coated the fingers of his right hand with lube, then brought himself up to his knees in front of me. He laid his hand on my chest and applied a gentle pressure until I'd seated myself back onto my folded thighs. "You have a little work to do first," he informed me.

I wasn't quite sure what he meant, but my confusion didn't last too long. He took my right hand in his, transferring much of the slippery gel onto it and moving our hands down and in between my legs. He held onto the palm of my hand while he rubbed my fingers against my entrance, teasing the sensitive area for a minute before pushing one deep inside. "I want you to prepare yourself for me," he whispered.

I closed my eyes and nodded, enjoying the feel as he worked that one digit in and out of me; my eyes opening when the movement suddenly stopped as he released my hand.

"Keep going, Heero." He was in the process of climbing off the bed...leaving me go and do what? My question was soon answered as I watched him pull the chair in the corner closer to the bed and he seated himself in it, looking over at me. "I want you to do this by yourself, Heero and I want to watch you." His eyes were directly focused on mine as mine were on his. I didn't notice that he was touching himself until he'd finished speaking. I started up the motion of my hand again not taking my eyes from him as I worked to find a pleasurable rhythm. He buried his hand even deeper inside his small suit and shifted his hips forward. "Someone's had a little practice doing this."

I nodded. Since the time I'd let Duo play with me like this, I had added it to my masturbation routine, wondering how close to actually having him inside me it was. "I like doing it."

My confession caused him to moan and his hand shifted as he began stroking his cock. I added a second finger and gasped as my muscles stretched to allow it. "I can handle three," I told him.

"It's gonna take four before I fuck you."

I swiftly added the third and took a minute to adjust to it, wondering just how much pain would be involved with a fourth, the discomfort had always stopped me before. I pushed them as far up inside me as I could, lifting my hips and lowering myself back down onto them.

He paused his touch to slide the small black fabric down and over his knees, spreading his legs wide as it dropped to the floor around his ankles. "Fuck yourself harder, Heero."

I did and watched as his both hands moved over his chest and settled in between his legs. "Were you able to find your prostate?"

I nodded.

"Touch it now."

I bent over a bit more and curled my fingers slightly, shuddering as they pushed against the small bundle of nerves. "Nnn....Duo..." I was fast reaching the point of no return, striking that place inside me again and again.

"Add another finger, Heero."

I looked up at him. His hand was moving more rapidly up and down his length, the other alternately cupping and kneading his balls

"Do it."

I slid the three nearly all the way out, adding my pinky to the sticky group and pushed them upward, hissing at the sharp burning sensation the additional stretch caused. I closed my eyes and completely stilled, giving my body time to adjust. He waited not even a minute before continuing to encourage me. "Mmm...let's go, Heero."

I opened my eyes to find him spitting in the palm of his hand and wrapping his fingers around his cock. I raised my hips up off the bed and lowered myself back down, watching as he began pumping himself. I took it from his actions that he intended for us to climax like this. I mentally reasoned that it was a good idea. I'd waited long enough to do this and wanted it to last, this would relieve the immediacy I think we were both feeling. I took my erection in hand and easily found a nice rhythm, pushing my fingers up into myself as I thrust my hips up into my hand.

The pleasure built at an alarming rate and within seconds I found myself on the edge, I looked up to find Duo in nearly the same state. "Do it, Heero," he groaned. "Come on..." He leaned back into the chair and hooked both his legs over the arms of it, giving me an unobstructed view of his finger sliding into his entrance.

That was it. I let out a strangled cry and orgasm rocked its way through me at an unparalleled speed and intensity. I managed to keep my eyes open watching as Duo brought himself to climax, his back arched and hips thrown forward between wide spread legs. His features were twisted in what I'm sure were a mirror image of my own, thick jets of his release shooting upward to cover his chest as I felt my own doing the same.

Easing myself down onto the bed, I groaned as I removed my fingers, letting both arms fall to my sides before looking over at Duo. He appeared to be as spent as I was. I let the silence reign for several more minutes before speaking. "And we're supposed to have sex after that?"

His eyelids slowly raised to half mast, revealing the void of light they usually held. It was definitely a yes.

I'm not sure if I'd actually fallen asleep but I was definitely on the precipice. The movement of the bed startled me and I opened my eyes to find Duo seated beside me. "That was great, Heero." His unexpected praise was spoken almost reverently. He reached forward and placed his hand on my knee, separating my legs which had fallen to my side and ran his hand upward on the inside of my thigh, stopping just short of where I thought it was headed.

He took my hand in his and brought it to his reawakened arousal, making me question how long I'd been lying there. "Mmm...I'm hard again," he whispered, wrapping my fingers around his erection. I grasped it more firmly and he removed his hand, climbing over my one leg to seat himself between the two and spreading them further apart. I watched as he leaned forward to slide his fingers over my chest and through the evidence of my orgasm, guiding them downward and slipping two of them inside me. My cock responded favorably to his touch and I pushed down to allow his fingers fully to penetrate me. "More..." I moaned loudly.

He added another, but what I really wanted was him inside of me. I decided to tell him. "Duo...please..."

Well...almost tell him.

He looked up at me; twisting and driving his fingers still deeper. "Please what, Heero? Please fuck you?"

I nodded and he slid his digits out, removing my hand from his erection before bringing himself up onto his knees. "You know how much I want to."

I was ready, he was ready. I didn't understand what the problem was. "Then what are you waiting for?" It came out as almost a growl.

"I'm trying to decide how I want to take you." His eyes focused on mine as his hand moved slowly over his abdomen, gathering his cum then dropped down to coat his cock with it.

I hadn't given much thought to this particular aspect of having sex with Duo. I was aware from exploring the net since we'd become lovers that there were seemingly endless possibilities. For some reason, I'd just figured we'd do it missionary style our first time. I don't know why I assumed that, but I did...I should have known better.

"Get up onto your hands and knees."

I moved toward the center of the bed and into position quickly, feeling his warmth and hardness behind me almost immediately. He nudged my legs further apart with his knee and placed the palm of his hand in the center of my back, forcing my upper body down into the mattress. "Ass nice and high, Heero."

He moaned as I lifted my hips up, kneading the both cheeks roughly. He placed his cock at my entrance and moved forward to let just the head enter me, much too slowly for my liking. I pushed back, taking another inch or two of him inside. He slid his hands upward, taking firm hold of my hips. I could feel myself opening, stretching taut to admit him, but it wasn't exactly pain...or maybe it was just pleasurable pain. All I could think of was how good it must feel to have him fully buried in me. "Nnnn...all the way in, Duo. I can handle it."

I heard him let out a hiss behind me and his hands tightened their already rough grip. "You are so fucking tight," he ground out.

I think he thought that tight was a good thing, I think I would have if the situation were reversed. I toyed with the idea of making some reference to the size of his cock, but thought better of it. "Is that a complaint?"

"Nnn.... No!" He pushed forward and in one swift movement entered me fully. I gasped as he did so, almost loud enough to drown out his moan. "Stay still, Heero," he warned.

I was too busy processing the myriad of new sensations to even think about moving. I lowered my head and began to pant, trying to slow down my accelerated heart rate. His hand moved lightly over the soft flesh of my hips and traveled inward from there, gently caressing my lower back. "Tell me when you're ready."

As soon as he'd finished speaking I replied, "I've been ready. Just do it."

I could almost see the smirk on his face as I felt him pull almost all the way out. I shivered in that one second I waited for him to enter me again. The force of the impact took me by surprise and I braced myself this time as I felt him slide out, crying out as he slammed into me once more. "Unhh...jeezus, Duo!!!!"

"Jeezus, Duo what?" he growled.

I hoped he didn't expect me to answer him, especially since I wasn't sure if I was asking him to stop or asking for more.

He slowed his movements. "What, Heero? More? Or do you want me to stop?"

I added mind reading to his already impressive, yet still growing resume. He'd almost completely stilled now, making it easier for me to clarify exactly what it was that I wanted from him. "More, Duo..." I whimpered, sighing in relief as he began thrusting into me again. I pushed back against him now each time he entered me, needing every inch of his thick length inside me.

"Mmm....that's perfect, Heero," he whispered. "Feels good, doesn't it?"

Good was a gross understatement. It was unlike anything I'd experienced up until now and even surpassed the intensity of my fantasies. I did the only thing I was capable of doing well at the moment, pleading with him to give me what my body craved. "Harder, Duo!!!"

"Oh hard as you want it." The words came out as a low growl as he made his words reality.

Each time his body slammed against mine, I could feel myself climbing higher. I never wanted it to end, at the same time needing to find what I was certain was going to be a mind-blowing orgasm. I reached down in between my legs and began stroking my cock in time with his thrusts. "Unh...any second now!" I screamed.

Duo changed the angle of my hips and rammed into me with a grunt, striking my prostate. "Oh God...DUO!!" His breathing indicated that he was nearly ready to come. His voice was loud, but incoherent, I think he was urging me to climax with each forceful thrust he made into me. Whether he was or he wasn't, I was unable to delay the onset of my orgasm and I stroked myself faster with one hand while the other tightly gripped the sheets.

I felt all ten of his fingers gouging the flesh at either side of my hips as I screamed out his name in a voice I didn't recognize as my own. My entire body shuddered and I lowered my head to watch my cock twitch and christen the bed linens as Duo continued pounding me from behind in search of his release. It wasn't long before he found it and sealed himself against me as climaxed inside me, nearly howling as the pleasure took him.

I vaguely recall the discomfort as he withdrew; collapsing and then feeling Duo tumble down on top of me. I don't know how long we remained like that before he rolled off of me and onto the bed beside me. His hand caressed the side of my face. "You are going to be very sore, Heero," he said it with almost a chuckle. I groaned into the mattress, he was right. I remember feeling his weight leaving the bed and heard him humming as he crossed the room. I don't recall much after that until I felt his hand on my shoulder and his voice calling my name. "Heero...."

I rolled over and looked up at him as he stood beside the bed.

"Go get cleaned up." I glanced down at myself and back up at Duo. "Yeah."

He assisted me in standing, which was a good thing as my body had yet to fully wake. He followed me into the bathroom. "I ran you a hot bath. It'll help."

He didn't need to explain it any further. "Thanks."

He winked at me and exited the room, closing the door behind him.

I wasted no time sinking into the hot water, letting out a huge moan as the warmth instantly began its task of soothing my aching body. I couldn't help but smile as I thought about what had just happened. I settled back against the warmed porcelain and closed my eyes; sex with Duo was certainly not a disappointment...though my body might have otherwise disagreed.

I remained in the tub until the temperature of the water dropped and no longer provided me any additional relief. I dried myself off after soaking for what I'm guessing was about twenty minutes and returned to the bedroom with only a small towel wrapped around my waist.

Duo was already in bed and had just a sheet drawn over what I could easily see was his curled up form. He was facing the opposite wall and I was unable to tell whether he was still awake or had fallen asleep.

I let the towel drop to the floor and reached down for my bathing suit and was stepping into it when I felt Duo's hand on mine. I looked up at him in surprise. Although he didn't speak, I understood the question in his eyes and let my trunks fall to the floor, climbing into bed beside him and sliding my body beneath the sheet. I lay there for a second or two, finding this to be more awkward than anything that had taken place between us so far.

I remained on my back with my hands tucked under my head and as far from him as I could get; watching as he reached to turn out the light before redirecting my attention back up at the ceiling.

Propping himself up one elbow, he looked over at the clock on the nightstand beside me and groaned. "Man, I'm going to be a ficking zimbie tomorrow."

I turned sharply to face him. I couldn't have heard that right. "What?"

He looked at me and flashed me a grin. "I said its almost 4:00. We should get some sleep."

I shook my head. "That's not what you said."

"It's close enough." He rolled over onto his side to face me, reaching up under my head to take my hand in his and brought them down with fingers entwined to lie on the mattress between us. "Night, Heero."


I closed my eyes, knowing that sleep wasn't coming anytime soon.

On to part eight. Back to part six.
