Originally this was meant to be a one-shot, this fic has spawned numerous others that are floating around on my hard drive. This has now become a chronicle/story of the two guys. This starts out in the middle of the relationship, so be prepared for extremely weird time shifts.

So, anyway welcome to the Chronicles. Sit back and enjoy as I slaughter the Seto/Jou pairing.

Warning(s): Non-graphic sex, Yaoi, OoC Seto? (perhaps, but take into mind that he and Jou have been seeing each other for a while and this is in the middle of the night, sleep deprivation and hormones make people act weird.) I know, a poor excuse, but enjoy anyway.

Iris

I lie here with you. And I think to myself how did it happen? What in the world could have caused this attraction between us?

I know the saying opposites attract, but I never believed it until now. I'm quiet and anti-social, while you're loud and out-going. I'm cold and reserved in all the places that you're warm and open. I couldn't care less what people thought of me, but a harsh word to you is like a knife to skin. Especially when that harsh word is from me…

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I never realized that you could take something so seriously.

I remember seeing you at my door that day…

"Kaiba?" You had caught me staring at you. You looked so vulnerable. Standing there, completely soaked and dripping in my hallway. You really did look like a wet dog, and I told you so.

"Look Kaiba, I just wanted to come in from the rain. You don't have to be an ass about showing a little compassion!" I think I smiled. Your anger and flushed face always amused me.

"Be compassionate? To you? To a whining, sniveling puppy? Jounouchi, don't make me laugh." I sneered. But I led you to the living room anyway. I told you to sit down and you just stared at me. Confused and nervous.

"Sit down, Jou. I'm not going to kill you if you get my couch wet…" I said sharply.

"I bet you would…" You grumbled under your breath, thinking I hadn't heard you.

I cam back with a towel and promptly dropped it over your unsuspecting head. You yelped and stood, turning around to glare at me.

"Scared?" I asked as innocently as I could manage.

You glared at me again, but then your eyes softened…

And you sneezed.

I couldn't control the laughter that bubbled up inside of me. Something about the way that you shook your head. Or the way that you looked so much like a confused puppy that had just gotten their nose smacked.

You glare at me this time, and are not interrupted by any more sneezes no matter how amusing I may think they are…

"Don't be such an ass, Kaiba…" You growl. I stop laughing.

"Look, puppy. I didn't ask you to grace me with your presence. You want to stay here and dry off than you have to deal with me, alright?" I say.

You look at me. You're still extremely wet, and your clothes are clinging to your lean body. And I find myself staring again. You really are quite a sight.

You stand once again and toss the towel at me, walking towards the front door. You're probably praying that you don't get lost, because I know how much that would embarrass you…

You reach the front door with me following. I expected you to turn and say something mean or some other angry retort, but you just opened the door and step outside into the pouring rain.

You would rather be out there than in here…with me.

I don't know why it hurt as bad as it did. But I suddenly felt very alone.

I reached out and grab your arm. I know I had something to say, but you are too startled to care as you slip on the step and we both fall out into the rain.

I'm on top of you.

You groan and rub your head. You're oblivious to the fact that I'm with you in this position and I don't know whether to be indignant or surprised.

You look up with wide amber colored eyes when you see me. I think I must look just as surprised as you do. I feel something inside me stir. You're beautiful this way. I think I could get used to having you underneath me. I tell you so.

You double take.

"What?" You're blinking repeatedly now. I think I'll have just one taste.

I lean down and kiss you.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You taste like sunlight. Can someone taste like sunlight?

If I had known that that one taste would have led to so many others I think I would have given it to you so much sooner. Although, I can't say that I would trade the fighting we did when you hated me for anything in the world…Did you hate me?

You murmur something in your sleep.

Your head is resting gently on my shoulder and I can feel your breath on my neck. It makes me shudder for a moment, and I think of all the times that I have made you shudder in this very bed, and I can't help but smile a little.

I see the slight rise and fall of your bare chest and I think to myself 'Why?'

Why did you choose me? Why didn't you push me away?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

We're lying in my bed. I think that you're most comfortable here. You're father would probably kill you if he knew. And I'd kill him. We both didn't grow up with much for fathers, did we?

Your blonde hair is hanging in your face again, and I brush it to the side. My fingers touch your lips and I am reminded again of how very soft they are. I must have moved because you're shifting and suddenly I'm staring into your eyes. I do that a lot. You used to say in unnerved you, but you don't seem to mind anymore. You lean in and kiss me. It's soft and gentle and confuses the living hell out of me. I love it.

"Whacha thinking about?" Your voice is slurred from sleep. I decide not to lie this time.

"You."

You smile and kiss me again. This time passionately. I open my mouth to you and you plunder it. You are an amazing kisser.

I flip us so that I'm on top. I told you I could get used to this.

I want to take it slow this time. It always passes by so fast. I want this time to last. I want to show you that you're my world.

You're already naked beneath me, as am I. We had already done this once tonight. I think that maybe we will have to go down and retrieve your jacket and shirt from the stairs before the help arrives in the morning.

You don't let me prepare you. You'll be fine you say.

And then I'm inside you. And all that matters is that you keep arching up to meet me and I keep thrusting down to meet you.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You're chanting my name. Quietly, but I can still here it. You make it sound beautiful. My name has never sounded like that before. It always sounded like a cuss word coming from my father, it always sounded like a poison from your friends, and it always sounded like admiration from Mokuba.

But you make it sound like salvation.

How do you do that?

My eyes are open, and yours are closed. Your mouth is open and I'm watching you breathe. I bend down and cover your mouth with my own.

You still taste like sunlight.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

How do you do the things you do? Why do you care? You know everything about me.

You know when I want to be left alone, and you never take it personally when I need be by myself. You just leave, waiting for me to come out. You never force anything.

You moan. Loud.

And I think I'm going to die.

You're amazing. You love me. I hear it even when you don't say it.

You whisper it in my ear at breakfast, or look at me that way that makes me want to smile, or when you laugh and I can tell it's genuine.

And I guess that's all that matters.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Your gripping my shoulders, and you're head is thrown back. You're panting and I'm not quite sure what it is tonight, but you look amazing.

I'm moving slowly, but your body is begging me to move faster. You're writhing below me and every time I thrust I desperately try to hit that spot deep inside of you, forcing you to cry out. I can feel you tighten around me every time I hit it. I know I'm going to give soon. I reach down and stroke you. This is what I want.

You.

I feel an indescribable pressure as you release between us.

"Seto…" Falls from your lips and I know I am done for.

For every time I hurt you, I just wish that you could forgive me. But instead of apologizing, this is all I can give you.

I press forward one last time and a deep moan is ripped painfully from me as I release deep inside you.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I fall next to you. Breathing onto your neck. You're breathing hard too and I think that maybe I'm losing my mind.

We shift so that I'm on my back again and you've got me pinned. I can feel your strength waning because of the past few events of this evening, but you're trying to hold me down anyway. I won't fight back.

You look into my eyes, and I know you can see everything. It doesn't matter that I didn't say it out loud, because you heard it anyway.

You lean down and brush our lips together.

You smile after pulling away. Your bangs are sticking to your forehead and I am reminded of how very sexy your are at moments like these.

We're back in the same position we started in, but something is different. Very different.

I feel safe.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I kiss the top of your head, feeling a little playful even though I'm exhausted and I know you are too.

"What a cute little mutt…" I mutter against your forehead. You really hate that nickname and I enjoy teasing you to a point that must be immoral on some level.

I can feel you smile against my shoulder and you pinch me. Murmuring those words that I've grown accustomed to hearing and that never fail to make me smile.

"Don't be such an ass, Seto…"

I chuckle deep in my throat and tighten my hold around your body pulling you to my chest. This is where you belong, I think, as I feel you kiss my neck lightly.

You close your eyes and fall asleep easily. You always trusted me.

I wish it hadn't taken me so long, but I do now.

I may never understand why you're lying here next to me tonight, but all I really care about is that you are. And I am never letting you go.

I kiss you one last time, and even in your sleep you kiss me back.

You still taste like sunlight.
