Chapter XII; Something Of A Plan
When Eragon woke up the next morning the first thing that struck him was that he wasn't alone. He shot up in bed and almost fell over the edge. Damn, why did he always have to sleep at the very edge of the bed? Eragon moved to get out of the bed when three things hit him. One; he was sore all over, even in places he didn't know existed. Two; he was not in his room. And three; something was holding him in place and was dragging back onto the bed.
"Hey!" Eragon protested.
"It's way too early Eragon. Go back to sleep."
The brunet choked on air. He looked over his shoulder only to stare into a pair of sleepy hazel eyes. Eragon blushed.
"You alright love?" Murtagh asked softly.
And just like that the previous night came back to him. The happenings at the club flew past his eyes until he came to why he was in Murtagh's bed. The blush deepened.
"We… slept together?" Eragon asked with a gulp.
Murtagh laughed softly.
"Yes we did Eragon."
"And you love me?" The younger brunet asked.
"Yes I love you. And what of you?" Murtagh asked with a small smirk.
"Of course I love you!" Eragon exclaimed.
The hazel eyed male kissed Eragon's nose.
"Good. Now lay back down. It's too early." Murtagh said with a small groan and flopped back onto the pillow.
Eragon glanced at the clock on the wall and his mouth opened in shock.
"It's almost 3 pm!" He said loudly and turned to face his brother again.
"Fuck, really?" Murtagh groaned. "You must have worn me out real good."
Eragon blushed again.
"Oh, shut up." He muttered and slipped out of the bed.
Eragon then proceeded to look for his clothes. He found his boxers tangled with Murtagh's and his tee under the bed. His pants however were nowhere to be found.
"Tag, have you seen my pants?"
"Yes, and you look much better without them." Murtagh answered without even opening his eyes.
"I'm serious!" Eragon exclaimed and slung the boxers in Murtagh's general direction.
He was lucky with his aim and hit Murtagh in the face. The older teen shot up in bed and removed the article from his face.
"Thanks." Murtagh said with a laugh. "Here are your pants by the way."
Eragon caught them and put them on. He stretched and felt his body complain. Murtagh came up behind him, now in his pyjama pants but still without his top, and started to gently massage his back.
"Like you wouldn't believe." Eragon groaned softly.
"Oh, I think I can." Murtagh said with a chuckle and kissed the exposed neck. "Jump into the shower now."
"Who says that you can order me around?" Eragon asked with a raised brow.
"I do… unless you want me to join you?"
"I'll take a rain-check on that one." Eragon said with a small laugh.
Murtagh's chuckles followed him out of the room. But the small grin on Eragon's face didn't leave him the entire time he was in the shower.
Eragon was walking to meet his friends a few hours later. It was only after he had found his phone again that he had seen just how many that had tried to reach him. Eragon had simply sent a message to all of them to meet him at the Varden Café. After he had sent the texts he had heard his brother groan. Eragon then knew that his brother hadn't been spared of the text messages from hell either.
The brunet shook his head and opened the door to the café. He found his friends in the back of the cosy room. Lifting an eyebrow Eragon walked pass the other vacant tables and sat down beside them.
"Where were you!?" Arya almost shouted at him.
Eragon leaned away from the black haired girl.
"I was at home…" Eragon answered.
"Then how come you didn't answer us until 3 this afternoon??" Arya asked him firmly.
Axel laughed beside her. He stood up and clapped Eragon on the shoulder.
"Well, I'm sorry guys, but I have to go."
The three teens stared up at him in wondering.
"I thought you said aunt would come in two hours?" Arya said with a small frown.
"I just don't want to make Murtagh angrier than he is." Axel said a laugh, pointing in the direction of the door. "Thorn's here and I'm sure the overprotective one is not far behind."
Eragon snorted softly. Arya and Saphira said their goodbyes. When it was Eragon's turn Axel pulled him to his feet and hugged him. The brunet returned it hesitantly. Axel let go and chuckled.
"Oh, and congrats by the way. With Murtagh and all." He whispered before waving to them all and walking away.
Eragon shoved his hands into the pockets of his army-pants. He shrugged at the girl's questionable looks. He really hoped he wasn't blushing again.
"If you aren't going to tell us what caused you to go MIA for a few hours, then how did it go in the club last night?" Saphira asked with her hands folded on top of the table.
"Alright." Eragon said with a sigh. "Murtagh acted like the overprotective brother he is and chased Axel away. Afterwards I sat him straight, or at least somewhat."
The girls let out sounds of disappointment.
"Was that all?" Arya wanted to know.
Eragon wanted to grin, but kept himself from doing it.
"Pretty much, yeah."
Saphira straightened the red cap she was wearing. It stood nicely to her plaited red skirt and dark sweater. Arya sighed and took a gulp of the steaming cup in her hands.
"After the club then? Don't tell me nothing happened!"
Eragon stretched his arms over his head. He felt something creak and sighed in pleasure. His back had been bugging him all afternoon. Arya tapped her fingers on her jeans-clad leg as she waited for an answer to her question.
"Alright, I won't tell you." Eragon said calmly.
Arya let out a sound of annoyance. She crossed her arms over her tanned t-shirt and scowled.
"I don't believe you." She said with a small shake of her head.
Saphira shook her head amusedly. Arya narrowed her eyes but soon her expression turned gleeful.
"Fine, I'll just have to ask Murtagh myself!"
Eragon felt himself become pale. He turned in his seat and saw his brother walk in the door. Their eyes met for a second and Eragon felt a small blush graze his cheeks. Murtagh said something to Thorn and pointed in the friends' direction. Thorn nodded. Together the two males made their way over to the others and managed to squeeze themselves around the table.
"What's up?" Thorn asked as he kissed his girlfriend's cheek.
"We're questioning Eragon!" Arya exclaimed.
"Arya refuses to believe that nothing happened last night." Saphira said with a small grin. "And quite frankly, I don't either."
Eragon stuck his hands into the front pocket on his black hooded sweater instead. He could feel his cool disappearing, especially with Murtagh beside him. Murtagh chuckled and put an arm around his brother's shoulders. Eragon found that he really liked the feeling of the leather jacket against his neck.
"Did something happen last night Rider?"
The younger brunet rolled his eyes.
"I don't think so." Eragon answered.
Murtagh ruffled his hair, making Eragon let out a sound of protest, before removing his arm. The older male crossed his jeans covered legs and smirked.
"There you go." Murtagh said simply.
Thorn rolled his eyes from where he sat beside Murtagh. Thorn shrugged his black clad shoulders when Arya turned to look at him.
"Unfair. You had the house all to yourselves and nothing happened?!" Arya sulked. "You guys are impossible!!"
Eragon opened his mouth to speak, but was cut off before he could utter even the first word.
"Impossible?" Murtagh chuckled. "What did you expect us to do? Fuck like rabbits?"
Eragon couldn't help it, he blushed. Arya scowled.
"I never said that." She murmured.
Murtagh laughed and stood up. Thorn followed his friend and gave Saphira a kiss goodbye. Murtagh followed his friend's example as he bent down and planted a kiss on Eragon's lips. The dark haired one smirked softly and waved at the trio as he and Thorn walked out of the café. The door closed behind them and still the two girls hadn't said one word.
Eragon licked his lips. Saphira shook her head and her eyes seemed to finally wake again.
"Nothing happened eh?" She asked, blinking innocently.
"You never said when I was to give into my urges and tell you." Eragon said with a shrug, a small blush still on his cheeks.
"You lying little bastard!" Arya said with a laugh. "I should have seen through that mask. Congrats on fooling me."
Eragon rubbed the back of his neck.
"Well? What did you spend the alone time with Taggy doing?" Arya asked with a smirk.
"Whatever you're imagining…" Eragon said with a small shake of the head. "It can't be bad enough."
The girls let out twin-screams of delight. Eragon covered his ears and winced.
"Done now? Fuck you're loud."
"Come on! Tell us!!" Saphira exclaimed excitedly.
"Alright." Eragon said coughing awkwardly. "We… did it."
Saphira and Arya grinned.
"Aw, our little Eragon, no longer a virgin." Arya said with a pout. "How fast the young grow up these days."
Eragon glared at her mildly.
"Was it any good?!" Saphira wanted to know.
Eragon just nodded. The girls giggled loudly.
"Are you going to tell anyone else?" Saphira asked next, suddenly very serious.
The brunet sighed. He and Murtagh had briefly talked about it earlier before they had gone separately to meet up with their friends. The conversation played off in his mind.
"Murtagh, what are we going to do about this?"
Murtagh stopped tying his boots and stood straight to face his brother.
"About us. Telling people and stuff." Eragon murmured.
The older sighed and pulled his brother into a hug.
"I don't know Eragon." Murtagh muttered into Eragon's hair. "As long as I've got you and my friends I don't need anyone else."
"What about mum?" The younger brunet sighed.
Murtagh tightened his grip the slightest.
"If people don't understand then they're not worth it. It's not like we can make babies and fuck them up 'cause of the DNA." The hazel eyed teen said.
Eragon laughed softly.
"If mother doesn't understand, then we'll just have to move." Murtagh said. "I came up with a plan last night didn't I?"
"Something of a plan yeah." Eragon said with a snort before turning serious. "We are just going to run then? Till we find somewhere to hide?"
Murtagh kissed the top of the light brown hair.
"I know it seems impossible, but it's the only thing we can do. People are more likely to not understand us."
Eragon buried his head deeper into the broad chest.
"I love you Eragon, I really do. Feelings like these don't disappear over the night." Murtagh said softly.
"Same here Tag. I really love you too."
"We'll just have to take it one step at a time. We can wait a bit before telling mother. But I'll be here for you bro. Don't hesitate to share your fears with me." Murtagh said affectionately.
Eragon blinked and was suddenly back with his friends. He sighed and crossed his arms.
"We've agreed to take things one step at a time."
Arya and Saphira moved closer to him and hugged him from both sides. Eragon hugged them back the best he could.
"Just remember we'll always be here for you both." Arya said softly.
"Thanks guys." Eragon murmured gratefully.
"We can't help whom we fall in love with." Saphira said with a small smile. "In a way, we're all just victims of love."
The three friends laughed. And somehow, the world looked just a little bit brighter.
So, what did you think? Disappointed you never got to know Selena's reaction? Sad that Axel had to leave? Lol, you aren't the only ones! XD
