*I do not own The Suite Life On Deck or any of the person's related to the show!!!!

Please read:

OKAY this story is rated M for a reason, a strong reason...If you do not like what is in this story, and are very uncomfortable with the subjects of twincest, rape, and homosexuality, don't bother.. Just turn away now. I have a problem with the "R" word; in fact, it makes me cringe...It's not a matter to joke around with, so (to those of you who are like this) it is NOT a funny subject. By using it in my story I'm honestly just being creative. I'm sorry if I offend anyone but you were warned. Thank you!!

On a side note, this is my FIRST fanfiction on a couple that is a REAL set of people, not anime. I hope that it's okay, :) please review and tell me if I should continue into a higher extent of this story... I'm not honestly sure where it will lead, but we will eventually find out! TYVM!!! :D

The sun was rising slowly across the water, glistening with a reflection so bright and beautiful, it hurt you eyes, yet you couldn't help but watch it. The sun shown a deep red that faded into the bright orange glow that lit the morning sky; from twilight, to dawn, alerting that the day was going to be hot nonetheless. Many people couldn't be bothered to rise as early as five in the morning, merely to see the sun. People who were ignorant, would most likely state that it's just the sun, it's not like you don't see it every day that it isn't raining or snowing, like Zack would. But to Cody, the sunrise was the time he got the be alone and happy in his own thoughts. No one to judge him for how he thought, how smart he was, the way he really was.

Cody leaned over the edge of the railing on the large ship, watching as the waves crashed against the bow of the boat, sending mist flying into the air. The water was not normally this harsh, but there was a wind blowing in from the east that rocked the waves and blew Cody's blonde hair away from his face, dampening it only slightly with the salt from the water. A wonderful addition to his morning alone.

Several crew members passed by, nodding their heads to him to acknowledge his presence. He returned the nods with a friendly smile before he swiftly pivoted on his toes to admire the now fully risen sun that stung his eyes.

"Ah," Cody blinked his eyes a few times, trying to remove the spots he caused, "there's a reason we don't look at the sun..."

"Well duh, even I knew that." he jumped hearing that all too familiar voice behind him.

"Yes, I know, Zack..." a smile grazed his lips, bearing a small amount of his white teeth.

The older twin approached, placing his arm around his brother's shoulders. There was silence between the two for nearly a minute that felt more like an hour. In one way, shape or form, silence has to be broken. Zack spoke first, his brother already comprehending what he was about to say.

"You're cold, I can feel the goosebumps on your shoulders through your shirt." he glanced at his brother's thin white t-shirt.

Cody paused, gathering his words together, "I know, I was just out for a bit to see the morning..."

Zack nodded, his presence more easy than normal around his brother. There was no tension, only the awkward silences that fell between them as they watched the same ocean. Zack's person, around his brother, (and his brother alone), seemed to calm almost to a stop, turning him into nearly prince charming. Calm, quiet, caring, concerned and most of all, loving. Cody loved this about his brother, but would never discuss it with him fully about why he would become like this when no one else was around. But he dared not question it. It was one of the things he enjoyed about his brother. Unpredictable, yet totally predictable...if that makes sense.

"Shall we?" Zack turned to his brother and raised an eyebrow with a questioning look.

"We shall." Cody wriggled from his brother's seemingly protective grip and walked back to their rooms, "well, I should go shower now."

"Take one in my room so you don't have to wake Woody?" it was more of a request than that of a question, but Cody complied with a small nod even though both of the boys knew that Woody wouldn't wake.

The older of the two flopped down onto the conjoined beds in the room, picking up a car magazine full of beautiful girls that exploited themselves only to sell the hot rod of a car they were leaning/laying on. Thing's like that displeased Cody, but Zack seemed as if he could care less about how women spent their spare time. They were all the same in his mind anyways.

As Cody stepped into the shower, the hot steam caused his body to shake as he realized how cold he was. It soon subsided when the steam filled the small bathroom, fogging up the mirrors that only revealed the hand prints that Zack had placed there after he was done taking his showers. Cody smiled, wrapping his small frame in one of the towels that weren't so neatly folded. He contemplated wiping off the mirror to brush his hair, but grinned and wrote as neat as he could, 'silly brother', fallowed by a small heart.

"You're very quiet today." Zack piped up in the other room.

"I could say the same for you, is something wrong?" he walked out, hair dripping and shaking at the sudden coldness in the bedroom.

"I think I'm just catching your calm vibes again...that seems to happen when you're up so early to watch the sunrise." Zack smiled and tore through his clean clothes, knowing that his brother would kill the calm aura of the room if he had to deal with dirty clothing or walk across the hall, naked, to acquire his own clothing.

"Understandable. My question is though, how come you don't catch my calm vibes all the time?"

"Maybe because you're not always as calm as you think, your mind is constantly racing, I can tell. It hardly ever slows down. That is one thing we have in common." Zack chuckled slightly and threw a clean hoodie at his brother, along with some jeans.

"I suppose you are right. I can't always stop myself from thinking." Cody's towel dropped to the floor, causing Zack to tense a bit and locate his eyes away from his brother's body. This action went unnoticed as he slowly pulled on his boxers and undershirt that he had worn to admire the sunrise, followed by his brothers hoodie and jeans.

"Anyways lil bro, want some pizza?" Zack thrust a piece of pizza into Cody's face nearly causing him to fall over onto the bed at the sudden action.

"Ah, er, sure." Cody took the slice and looked at it, "Is-"

"-It's fresh, don't worry so much...I'm not in the mood to upset you today, if you haven't noticed..."

"I have noticed, thank you." he took a small bite of the pizza, zoning in on his brother's thoughts, (which are normally mindless bunches of nothing), "Something is wrong..."

"You can tell? So easy for you...sometimes it's hard for me...Anyways, what are you picking up?"

"Something bad is going to happen...at least that is how you feel? Tell me when you figure it out..."

Zack smiled and patted his brother on the head, "I'm sure it's nothing, I might just fail a test is all." he lied.

"Nothing new there." Cody smirked and handed the rest of his pizza off to Zack who casually tossed it aside and tackled his brother to the bed, "You're ruining the moment!!! Ruining it I tell you!" Cody screamed like a girl as they fell onto the floor, a soft landing into a pile of dirty clothing and God knows what else, "Eww!"

Zack laughed, holding his brother down into the clothes, refusing to give up his hold on him.

"Let me go!"

"Okay, but you have to make me a promise." Zack leaned close to Cody's face until they were only an inch apart, Cody nodded, mesmerized by the sudden serious look upon his brother's face, "Watch your back..." Zack stood up and walked over to the door.

"What do you mean...?"

"I really don't like this feeling...I hope it goes away, but I can say for the most part...until it does go away...I'm not taking my eyes off of you."

Cody gulped, feeling the tension in the room finally rise. He jumped nearly a foot in the air from where he was sitting when there was a knock upon the door.

'Today is weird already...More weird than any other day. The way Zack is today, it's rather hard to understand.' Cody thought as he pushed himself up from the floor.

Cody walked to class, books in arms pressing tightly against his chest. Zack appeared back to normal, chatting with his friends and flirting with random girls he'd run across. Normal behavior. Or so he appeared to be alright. The older twin couldn't help but feel the pair of eyes that lingered behind his younger brother as he walked across the deck of the ship after class.

"Zack, we're going to go throw jello at old people in the pool, wanna join us?" several guys including Woody dragged him away from his current occupation.

"I thought I'd hang out with Cody today." the group of boys looked at each other before laughing and dragging Zack away without another word from his mouth.

The deck was hot from the warm late afternoon sun, it was nearly 4pm and people would be heading for dinner soon and the deck would be cleared of all disturbances. Cody glanced around, noting that he was nearly alone on the upper level of the ship before he removed his t-shirt and laid down on a spread towel. As he relaxed, the tiredness from awaking at such an early hour caught up with him and he slowly dozed off to sleep.

Cody felt something cold touch his arm, then something warm replace it, "Hey, kid, wake up." the action repeated, the gentle tap of a shoe then the shake of a hand.

"Hnm?" Cody sat up, rubbing his eyes.

"Are you moon tanning?" the man was tall, and very handsome. His hair was brown and spiked slightly with hair gel, his eyes a piercing green.

"Ah, I suppose I fell asleep up here..." shock hit Cody, "What time is it?!"

The man looked at his watch, "Around seven thirty, are you late for something?" the man raised an eyebrow and helped Cody to his feet.

"I was going to meet my brother at seven to help him study for a test tomorrow, well it's not like he'd be too interested in studying, or passing for that matter...but I figured I could help a little."

"Well, let's get you back then. I'm sure he's very worried that something may have happened to you."

"Yeah..." Cody went over his brother's words in his head, suddenly feeling more eyes on him, "I uh, should go now..." as he spun around to head the opposite direction of the man, a hand was pressed against his chest, stopping him from moving.

"Now, now. There's no rush."

Cody gasped, sudden panic taking over his mind and body as he tried to run from the now three men that were around him, but felt himself held back by the arms.

"Let me go!" Cody was about to scream at the top of his lungs, but was forbid of this action when a rag was stuffed into his mouth, tied securely around his head by a rope.

"Find some place we can take him, not any of our rooms, that would be stupid." the two men that held onto Cody's arms dragged him off, avoiding any people that could be near.

He watched as they walked across the deck with him, winding up at one of the few classrooms that were located on that level of the ship. Cody's heart raced, pounding out of his chest as he was shoved into the room onto the cold floor. The men didn't speak, only dragged Cody's body to the back corner of the room where they tied him up, preventing him from moving in any way.

A stream of tears rolled down his face, wishing his brother would come to the rescue, but he was sure, no, positive Zack had no idea where he was currently. A knot welled up in his stomach as he was stripped clean of his pants and boxers that he wore, being placed face down on the carpet that smelled like soap. Cody was sure that every time he smelled that soap...he would be brought back to the memories of this horrid dream he was in...It was a dream right? No, it couldn't have been...Zack would have been there to wake him up and hold him while he cried. The pain was all too real as well, not saying that there wasn't pain to experience in a dream, but this was more real.

Cody struggled as best as he could, but an unbearable pain in his backside caused him to let out a muffled scream. The three men took their turns, violating him, laughing at him and thrusting their hips against his in many different positions. He was exhausted in the end, or what he thought was the end. The room spun, the pain turned to numbness except for the throbbing pain that hit his head. Cody was sure he was going to die, the room was slowly turning white, and then eventually everything was black where he was.

The three men, the monsters that harmed him, tossed him carelessly into the supply closet in the classroom, he wouldn't be found for a while if he was sure that's where they put him...Cody had at least expected them to toss him over the boat, the cold piercing water would soon finish him off if he didn't drown from his hands being bound so tightly. That's all he wished for right now, to die and end the hurt he felt; or for his brother...his brother to save him...

There was silence...silence that lasted for an eternity. A nightmare that would never end.

Alright, 1st chapter, short. Understandable? No? Well, anyways. What did you think?

In my mind, I want Zack to be a little more mature about life and things in this story. Yes it's a twincest fanfiction story and it WILL get very sexy, but .. er.. do you understand what I'm saying? Lol.

This story I guess will express Zacks love for Cody and show that when it comes to protecting his very fragile younger/twin brother, he'll do anything and never let go. :) thankssss 3
