Chapter 3: Pain and Passion

Luke was amazed to find that there were no guards outside the military headquarters… But then, it probably shouldn't have been surprising… Jade could have easily given them some bogus order to have the place to himself…

"Damn it… What is that bastard planning now?" Luke moaned, staring at the closed door before him. He could turn around, walk away and leave. But he was afraid that would mean being a coward. But was it really cowardice? Luke sighed and pushed open the doors, which, of course, were unlocked. Assuming that Jade had sent off the guards to be alone, Luke locked the doors from the inside to keep anyone else out.

On the other side of the doors, Guy cursed under his breath as he heard the lock slide into place… so not even Luke really knew what Jade was up to… Deep in thought he ran his gloved fingers through his short blonde hair while he contemplated another way into the otherwise impenetrable Malkuth Military Headquarters.

Inside, Luke walked slowly along the corridors, his heart racing as he went. He tried his best not to make a sound, and before he knew it, he was standing in front of the oaken door to Colonel Jade Curtiss's office. How is it that when you don't want to go somewhere, getting there takes less time than normal? Luke thought miserably, looking at the gold nameplate on the colonel's door. Taking a deep breath he knocked lightly upon the lacquered wood…

Guy had been so desperate to find out what was going on that he climbed up a wall and was trying to open a barred window that opened into the main hall of the building. Unfortunately, he didn't have the physical strength to get it open…

"Damn… Luke… What are you getting yourself into now?" He cursed and looked up toward the window… but then he noticed a small door in the side of the building that he hadn't seen before…

"Yes? Come in." Jade's voice called from the other side of the door. Luke stood there motionless unsure what to do… he could still turn around…

Jade sat at his desk his eyes trained on the door, a smile starting to spread across his lips as he saw the doorknob turn…

Luke stepped into the cluttered office and shut the door behind him before turning to Jade who looked toward him with his usual completely unreadable expression.

"Umm… What did you want me for?" Luke asked, not moving from where he stood.

"It's about time… for another lesson." Jade said calmly and rose to his feet.

"L-Lesson?" Luke squeaked, backing up against the door. Luke had all but managed to completely shove his feelings for Jade out of his thoughts and emotions ever since his last 'lesson'.

"Yes. But what shall I teach you tonight?" Jade asked, standing in front of Luke and folding his arms behind his back.

"Oh… how about I just go back… it's late… I'm really tired and…" Luke gasped involuntarily as Jade leaned down and placed a soft kiss on his forehead. "What?!" Luke cried, and noticed in dismay that he was completely up against the door and Jade had left him no room to escape.

"Oh… You're tired?" Jade asked mockingly. "Just wait 'til you're my age… Now… Just wondering… Did you enjoy my research book?"

"What?! Oh…" Luke just could not speak as his eyes met Jades. "That…" He said meekly. Jade only smiled his usual smile.

"Shall I teach you what you are… lacking?" Jade inquired, running his fingers through Luke's hair.

"Does it matter if I say no?" Luke inquired, closing his eyes tightly as Jade kissed him softly on the lips.

"Of course it does… But deep down… you want to know, don't you, Luke?" Jade asked, fixing Luke's green eyes with his crimson ones. Again… Luke was falling completely helpless at Jade's mercy… As he thought about it… The feelings all returned and his desire to be close to Jade was rekindled.

"…Yes." Luke said softly.

"What? I'm afraid my hearing is going a little bad… old age, you know. But first… there's something else I need to ask you about…" Jade smirked.

"Yes, Damn it." Luke said firmly and grabbed a hold Jade's collar and pulled him into a hungry kiss. Jade was quite amused by the sudden change in Luke's attitude. This would be interesting…

Guy managed to pick the lock on the small side door and get into the building that way… But he had no idea where he was. It seemed to be another military official's office, but it was empty but for a desk and a few empty bookshelves covered in dust. With a disgusted sigh, he left the office and entered the halls. Luckily, he knew where he was then, right outside Jade's office. With a triumphant grin, he placed his ear against the door and listened…

"So tell me, Luke… What was the real diagnosis." Jade demanded. Guy narrowed his eyes… just what was this?

"…My fonons are… separating…" Luke said miserably. "The doctor said it was only a matter of time… and then…"

"You'll die." Jade said bluntly. Luke whimpered. It took all the self-control Guy had not to cry out in shock at hearing this… Luke had… lied to them…

"Yeah…" Luke whispered, it sounded as though his voice was filled with tears. "I'm... scared… but I don't want anyone knowing… or they will treat me differently. I just want things to be the way they normally are…"

Luke fell to his knees, fighting the urge to cry. He could not let Jade see his tears… Men are not supposed to cry… But it was futile and he knew it. He was going to die… He was reallygoing to die… Jade knelt down and pulled Luke into his arms. He gently wiped away Luke's tears and held him close.

"Luke… that all depends on your actions. You may in fact survive." Jade said, resting his face against Luke's hair.

"…How?" Juke choked through his tears, clinging to Jade for dear life.

"By not dwelling on it." Jade explained. "You think about dying, then you will die. That's all there is to it. Don't let it go to your head."

Guy couldn't help but wonder… was Jade trying to comfort Luke? No… that was impossible…

"Anyway, I know of something to get this off your mind." Jade said smoothly.

"What?" Luke asked, not looking up at him.

"Time for your… Lesson." Oh… that.

Outside the door, Guy had tried to adjust his position because his leg was going stiff… But he fell backwards and hit his head on a piece of a fonmachine in the hall and was knocked out cold…

"Jade! Wait!" Luke cried as the colonel dragged him to the couch in front of his desk.

"Shh… just stay quiet and observe." Jade commanded and forced Luke to lie down. Luke closed his eyes as Jade straddled his hips and undid the buttons on Luke's rather revealing overcoat. "Where to start…" He murmured close to Luke's ear which he nibbled lightly as he ran his hands smoothly along Luke's bare chest.

"Ah… wait…" Luke said incoherently, not quite sure of whether or wanted the contact or not. Jade made no reply other than to trail sultry kisses along Luke's collar bone and throat. Luke moaned involuntarily and decided to give himself up the obviously well experienced colonel…

Outside the door Guy came to his senses and after cursing himself pressed his ear to the door again…

"J-Jade?" Luke gasped… "…What are you ?!"

"Be quiet, Luke…" Jade said timidly. Luke moaned loudly. Guy raised his eyebrows and listened more closely…

"F-faster…" This was Luke's voice… "J-Jade…"

"What the hell?!" Guy whispered, sure he was turning red. No… it couldn't be… there was just no way… But what were they doing… unless. Guy suddenly felt sick.

"Relax Luke…" Then he was sure… In an act of desperation, he opened the door silently and looked in…

Luke was sprawled over the couch, his face wore an expression of anguish while he gripped the edge of the sofa so hard that his knuckles were white. And Jade… Jade was…

"Oh… Lorelei…" Guy gasped in disbelief. It was a miracle that Jade hadn't seen him peek around the door… but then maybe not… he was concentrating flawlessly on Luke who's length he held beneath his teasing fingers…

Guy knew he should run. Just close the door and run like hell. But the thing was… he couldn't move… His eyes were locked upon Luke and Jade. Like a child watching a horror movie, he just couldn't turn away from the scene before him… and then…

"Guy?!" Jade had seen him. Their eyes met… and guy just knew he was in serious trouble… Luke was completely oblivious to his surroundings as he lay there completely incoherent.

"C-Colonel…" Guy stuttered.

"Out. Now. If you tell anyone what you heard, or saw…" The blonde only shook his head and ran. "Now… nothing more to worry about there…" Jade said and turned back to Luke who looked up at him questioningly… "Let's see… Where were we now?" Jade asked, closing, and this time locking, his door.


-cough- poor guy. Poor Luke. Jade is a psychotic pervert. Yes it gets better… just keep reading M'kay?
