Summary: Lance catches Ash with Gary. He does not react well.

Lance isn't paranoid. He isn't.

He just doesn't like it when Ash goes on 'training trips' with Gary. He's not a fool, and when Ash returns, he'll listen as Ash's pokémon whisper to him about what really happened.

They are on his side. They don't like Gary. They will snuggle into his arms the way their trainer has stopped doing, and as he rests his fingers on the tips of Pikachu's ears, he briefly wonders how lost he really feels.

He takes to carrying his dragon blades again. He got out of the habit for a while, wrapped in the blanket of love and security, but now he's walking the knife-edge of madness, waiting for Ash to slip.

It doesn't take long.

The wind whispers, and as he strides into his office and throws the door open, he sees a very guilty-looking Ash bent over his desk while Gary is pounding into him.

Are they expecting him to just let it go?

He laughs, because all his suspicions are proven true, and he calmly – very calmly – walks up to Ash, and tells him that even if he was sex-deprived, he shouldn't use other people's rooms. And then he kicks them out into the hall before they can react, pants down and unsatisfied.

And then….

He takes the pretty ornamental candlesticks he bought for their anniversary celebration out of his desk, and he lights them, and then he watches them fall as the carpet goes up in flames.

The door is locked from the inside, and he knows they won't be able to break it down, and as the flames roar around him, he laughs, because there is nothing they can do.

He's already disabled the sprinkler system in the Plateau. He'll burn down all evidence of sin, and then… he'll carry it with him to Hell.

Outside, Ash screams, but it's lost in the whoosh of wind as the Plateau is engulfed in flames of despair.

What, this theme again? *Sigh* I've already done Ash jealous of Lance, and Lance jealous of Ash… and probably Red too…

Why do I make Ash an unfaithful bastard? I have no idea… and yes, this will have a sequel!

Lance likes drama, ne?

Lance: *Huggles Red*

Ash: *Cries*

Red: *Preens*
