Reunion

Beneath the surface of Edinnu is a maze of lava tubes, remnants of some long-ago eruption. The largest of these tubes are easily two or three times the height of a man, whereas some are so narrow that they must be crawled through. They also form a natural labyrinth - anyone entering without a guide or some means of tracking their path is likely to be lost forever.

"In all fairness, I can't imagine I look particularly good either." Or smell that good, now that he thought about it. All the water in the lava tubes tended to whiff a little, thanks to the old volcanoes in the area. At least Vit was nice enough not to mention that. The less classy half of him wanted to add that Vit certainly didn't feel unattractive; in fact, it felt like the dragonrider had been working out. Either that, or it was just a reflection on the weight Taavi had lost.

"Vit. We haven't seen each other in eight turns, I smell bad and probably look worse. And you haven't stopped hugging me since you saw me. That's beauty." Sappy? Yes. It was sappy as fuck, a fact that Taavi would admit.

It didn't stop it from being true. His fingers wound their way through Vit's hair. Forty-eight turns old now. He imagined that the other man was probably graying. Maybe even a lot. Didn't matter. Vit waited. Schedules were hard to sync up sometimes, and both men had always waited for the other, for just a few moments of complete peace in each other's arms.

Taavi snickered and, for a second, sounded younger than his forty-eight turns. "Well, you have sharp elbows and my crotch is a very large target area. If you just avoided flopping around like an epileptic fish, we wouldn't have had that problem. I also very distinctly remember asking you to kiss it better."

Welp.

It took a grand total of thirty seconds to go from 'touching moment' to 'oral sex joke' moment. That was probably a new record.

"I haven't really seen you yet," V'tyai admitted without budging. Actually seeing Taavi would only be the cementing factor of yes, he was there but until he had to move away into somewhere light, Vit felt more than content to just keep clinging. His hands moved to press both hands flat against Taavi's back, the shorter man tilting his head to press his cheek against him instead of shoving his nose against the other man like a puppy. "But you're still beautiful. And horrible. If I let you go, you might disappear."

There, he'd said it. They stood in the dark and said stupid, squishy things, decided to be mushy, and like hell was V'tyai about to mock either one of them for it. Taavi might grab his ass for it. No helping it. He leaned back into the fingers in his hair, tilting back and away for the familiar touch of Taavi's fingers on his scalp.

Just because he had his head tilted back didn't stop his slow grin and quiet, dark laugh. One of the hands on Taavi's back twisted his dirty shirt for an idle tug, smile not dulling. "And I distinctly remember kissing it better. Possibly twice. You weren't complaining then."

True love meant being able to make sex jokes in the middle of horrible things. Vit so didn't care.

"Promise you won't scream? I mean, I typically enjoy all your screams," because interrupting touching, emotional moments with sex jokes was totally cool, right? "But... I've probably changed. Heh. One of the other handlers here, Taimur? He pointed out that I'm old as balls. His words, not mine."

Typically, Taavi supposed that a question of, 'so there wasn't anyone else ever?' would've been appropriate. After all, it had been eight turns. It was absurd to think that Vit would wait for him or something. At the same token... well... he was Vityai. This wasn't a slur against the man-----actually, it was more of an opinion of Taavi's own awesomeness, which he rated as over 9,000----but... Vit was... very particular.

That and Taavi really didn't want to hear the answer, in case it was 'yes' and Vit pulled away.

"...yeah. Me too. I expect you to vanish at any moment," he admitted sheepishly. With Vit pressed against his chest like that, it was only natural to lean back so they were lying on the bed. It was more comfortable, even if it was sorely lacking in the mountain of pillows that Taavi felt were necessary.

He chuckled. "That's very true. What can I say? No one can make me shut up quite like you." Or at least make him stop complaining. Taavi rarely ever truly shut up.

"...Is Yusuth doing alright?"

"I refuse to comment on the state of your balls." V'tyai said, his face and tone a complete :|. But then they were lying down, reclined a bed he really didn't want to imagine the state of. He curled closer, an arm draped over his waist, cheek pillowed on some shoulder-esque part of Taavetti. When he closed his eyes, he could pretend the hallucination Taavi described is something ongoing right there. (Except the smell and the volcano and the fact there was a Murderbeast guarding them from more murderbeasts.)

His hand crept up Taavi's arm, fingertips brushing along the hem of his sleeve. Thumb and index finger rubbed against the fabric and then up, pressing under the sleeve to touch actual shoulder. Fuck clothes. he wasn't going to get naked right then and there but skin... skin was good.

"I won't scream. Probably. Then you can do that shit-eating grin thing and I'll forget to scream." Vit grinned himself - amazing how things were easier in the dark - and hugged Taavi closer. What was that about not stopping the hugging since he'd been there? Right. well. On with that.

The grin softened at the edges with the topic of his dragon. V'tyai cleared his throat and gave his head the slightest of shakes. "He's still not giving a flying fuck about anything. Or flying, really. He lost one of his eyes and part of his tail to a Deep One. We..." He tapered off. The fingers on Taavi's shoulder tapped out a quick beat before Vit continued on. "He's been testy lately, the bastard. But he missed you enough that he stayed with me after ... everything."
