Disclaimer: The WWE is not mine nor are any of it's child branches, it is the 96% property of the McMahon's and God bless the bastards that work for them. I respect the sexual preferences and identities of all the wrestlers on WWE roster, and who they share a bed with is really none of my business.
Warnings: Slash, UST to the extreme, angst, fluff, all that stuff in one

My ADD kicked in again for this story. Like one of my other Codiasi stories, this one jumps a bit. POV switches a bit as well. This story was inspired by the small blue trunk spam on the Codiasi community on Live Journal (you know the ones!) I just started thinking of all the things Cody does to rile Ted up, and put them into this one long UST fic. Lots of scenes, I basically put whatever came to mind.

We must remember, Cody went to acting school. He's a devious little bitch, and that's how I portrayed him.

PS: I'm going to be referencing "The Art of War" through this entire story, each quote dealing with that chapter (generally.)


When Cody Runnels was just six years old, he stole a plate of cookies at his father's birthday party. Dusty laughed it off, getting together with some of his friends and chuckling as the little tyke proceeded to devour the entire tray.

Then young eight year old Teddy Jr. came over, teasing the younger boy about not fitting into his pants anymore. Little Cody looked down at the tray, at the very last cookie, and a cute smile spread across his face. He took the last chocolate chip cookie and offered it to Teddy. The older boy looked quite shocked at this, not expecting such a gesture. He thanked Cody, patting him on the head sweetly before enjoying the cookie.

No one thought a thing of this innocent act, and no one saw how Cody's eyes fixed right on little Teddy's handsome smile. The thoughts forming in his head were invisible, young mind linking together thoughts like friend and must have and pretty eyes. When his fist came up and tugged at the boy's shirt to get another pat on the head, he had one final thought.

Mine.

Too bad no one looked closer, because the future was laid right out there for anyone to see.
