The TV was on, Squall sat on the couch in the Seed lounge that the posse had taken possession of. The sign of the door had read 'Welcome' before Cid left, now had a red line through the word and 'keep out' written over the top. He sat slouched sucking on a boiled sweet that Fujin had offered him. The albino sat in the arm chair that was pointed at the TV to the left of the couch. It was still quite early in the evening.
He folded his arms, sulking. His 'friends' were getting more annoying than ever, after he'd left the cafeteria Raijin had walked quickly to catch up with him and they then walked together to the lifts. Of course Quistis had to be coming from the other direction at the same time, she looked at Raijin like she hadn't seen him before and then after a moment of looking awkward she completely ignored him.
"How'd you put up with that, you know?" Raijin asked, as they watched the blonde leave.
Squall just shook his head. Apparently if he wasn't part of the orphanage gang, if he had friends of his own he wasn't normal. Okay so Seifer being a part of his new friend group maybe part of it but he had thought that Quistis would be civil with Raijin and Fujin. He knew Zell would have a problem and maybe Rinoa too but the others?
The back of the couch dipped under Squall's head from behind as a pair of arms leant heavily on it.
Breath ghosted over his ear as Seifer spoke. "What are you two watching?" He stared at the TV in confusion.
"Um…." Squall waved a hand at the TV. "It's um…. Well there was a dog in it in moment ago and um…." He looked over at Fujin for help.
She shook her head too. "It just came on, I don't know what it's called."
Seifer rolled his eyes. "And this is what you're spending your time doing? We could go and…" He waved a hand as he tried to think of something they could do. "-Do stuff." He ended lamely.
Squall just groaned and sunk farther into the sofa.
Fujin sat up suddenly as if from a trance. "I do have that paper to finish for tomorrow's class."
Seifer rolled his eyes and walked around the sofa to flop down next to Squall.
"You guys are so boring." He lay across the sofa and rested his head on Squall's arm.
The brunette frowned and quickly moved causing the blonde to fall backwards into his lap.
Seifer scowled up at Squall from his place with his head resting on the brunette's thighs, then he smirked and snuggled his head into Squall's lap. "I'm really quite comfy here."
Squall's eyes widened and to tried to push the blonde away. Seifer just laughed and gripped on to him.
Fujin rolled her eyes. "You know from this angle it looks like he's giving you a blow job."
"What?!" The brunette shot off the couch, causing the blonde roll off and hit the floor with a thud.
"OW!" He rubbed his head, rolling onto his back and glaring up at Squall. "What'd you do that for?" He glanced over at Fujin, who was laughing at him.
Squall just sputtered for second with his mouth open, not really sure why he had thrown Seifer on the floor. The echo in his head of Raijin telling him that Seifer was into men and then Fujin with the blow job comment…. Maybe he over reacted.
"Y-You were the one who-" He waved his hand at the couch.
"I was joking." Seifer glared at him, getting up while rubbing at the red mark on his forehead.
Squall looked a little guilty. "…..Sorry." He mumbled. "How's the head?"
"Fine." Seifer grumbled.
Squall leant on the back of couch looking over at the blonde for a second. "Anything I can do?"
A pause. "You could kiss it better for me."
It take a beat for Squall to realize what the other man had just said and then he glared at the now smirking blonde.
Fujin laughed. "It's so fun to watch you guys flirt with each other."
"You do not flirt with each other." Squall said with a glare.
"Aww now come on I'd bet you'd make a really cute couple." She said.
Squall's eyebrows shot up. "A couple? Me and…. Him." He looked Seifer up and down in a less than flattering way.
"Thanks." The blonde rolled his eyes.
Squall rolled his shoulders and cracked his neck as the pushed off the back of the sofa. "Well I guess I should go and go some work before Quistis or Xu comes looking for me." He made a face.
"You work too hard." Seifer said, sitting the arm of the sofa. "Stay here, watch the end of your dog movie, programme or whatever it is." He reached out and grabbed the brunette's hand and trying to pull him in.
Squall had the door in his other hand, refusing to let go. "I should go." He said, looking at Fujin he added. "I'll see you tomorrow morning."
She nodded. "It's a date."
Seifer frowned. "A date?"
Squall nodded, tugging his arm and breaking the contact with Seifer to head out of the door.
When he was gone Seifer raised an eyebrow at Fujin. "You have a date with Squall?"
She smiled. "Jealous?"
He scoffed. "No!" He swung around so that he was sitting properly on the end of the couch, still studying his friend until she smiled.
"You can relax, it's a study date. I have a test at the end of the week and he's helping me with it that's all."
"Oh." He said, after a beat he added. "And I wasn't worried."
She shook her head in agreement. "'Course not."
"It's this page we want." Fujin turned her book to the right page and gestured at it. Squall didn't react.
She frowned. "Hello?" She pinched his arm.
"Ow." He jerked away. "What was that for?"
"You're not paying attention, I'm the student here I should be the one not listening to you, not the other way around."
Squall shuffled in his seat. "Sorry."
She tried to look into his eyes, which he had lowered. "Is something wrong?"
"Not wrong exactly." He said quietly.
There had been another incident, last night after he left the lounge for his office to get some work done Seifer had followed him up there after half an hour or so. It started innocently, a little teasing and bit of harmless flirting on Seifer's part and then after watching him crick his neck a few dozen times his friend's hands landed on his shoulders for a little massage. Squall had sat up straighter in his chair, giving the blonde better access.
"You know I could do this better if you took your shirt off." Seifer teased.
Squall scoffed. "Not gonna happen." He closed his eyes though and leant back into Seifer's strong hands.
"Mmmm." He said.
"You work too hard you know?" His hands worked the back of Squall's neck.
At any other time Squall would have teased Seifer for the impersonation of Raijin but he was too relaxed to bothered.
He heard Seifer chuckle when he pushed his neck back into the blonde's fingers, he had a thing for his neck being touched anyway and then started to think about those hands on other parts of his body. Maybe he should have agreed to Seifer's idea of taking his shirt off. His mind wandered off to a full body massage, to the blonde flinging him on the desk and having his way with him. He was getting hard and his chair was pushed back so the desk wouldn't hide anything. He jumped out of his trance, opening his eyes quickly. This made Seifer jump too, his hands stilling on the brunette's shoulders.
"Are you okay?" He asked, because Squall's eyes were wide and alarmed and he seemed to be breathing all funny.
Squall sat forward and away from Seifer's hands. "That's err b-better…. Thanks." He added, pulling his chair forward to hide his crotch under the desk.
Seifer gave him a funny look for a second but then he shrugged.
"Anything else I can help you with?" He leered at the brunette over the back of the chair.
Squall managed to get his glare in place, though he had to look away because he could feel a blush creeping in, especially as his first thought was to say 'yes' and then guide Seifer's hand between his legs.
"No that's fine." He heard himself say. "I have a lot of work to do so…" He left it hanging but Seifer got the hint.
The blonde looked a little surprised. "Err- okay." He headed towards the door. "I'll… see you later?" He said it almost like a question.
Squall nodded, watching Seifer leave before he slumped in his chair and banged his head on the desk.
Fujin was staring at him like he was an alien or something. "Oh." She said eventually, slowly sitting back in her chair. "Well…. That's good right? I mean sometimes I wonder if you're even alive."
Squall rolled his eyes. "Thanks."
She shrugged. "At least I've never tried to set you up with strangers."
He nodded. "I'm not sure which is better, you thinking I'm dead inside or Selphie and Rinoa setting me up on dates?"
She smiled. "You know what you need?"
"You need to get laid."
He rolled his eyes.
"Unless…." She grinned. "It's just Seifer who gets you… err…"
"No." Squall shook his head. "It's not."
"It's just err…. Been a while that's all."
"Have you seen him since then?" She asked. "Seifer." She added in case Squall had forgotten who they were talking about.
"No." He looked at the table. "I guess I don't need to spar today."
Fujin rolled her eye. "You can't seriously be thinking about avoiding him? For a start it's never going to work, he knows the code to your dorm room."
"Oh yeah, I'll have to change it." Squall mumbled, mostly to himself.
"And also it's not fair, it's not his fault you wish you could get into his pants."
Squall scowled at her. "I do not."
She smirked at him. "We should go out tonight, get you laid."
"I don't know." Squall looked uncomfortable.
She shook her head. "We're going, just us, I doubt Raijin will be keen to go to a Bi sexual club where he might get hit on by men."
Squall snorted a laugh. "No." He agreed.
She nudged him. "Right come on, teach me something." She pulled the book nearer.
"Huh? Oh yeah." He looked at the book that the were working from.
"I'll come and get you tonight at eight and you'd better be ready to go." She said in her scary voice that she used for first year cadets and Raijin.
"Yes ma'am." He said.
Squall had grabbed the first shirt that came to hand because he really was not looking forward to this. He would find someway to get out of it but how do you say no to Fujin? He had never tried before. He put on the grey drab shirt without even looking at it and started to do the buttons up wrong. His door beeped suddenly like it does when someone has put in the correct door code and it swished open. Only one person knew the code to his door. Squall waited until Seifer appeared in his bedroom doorway. He looked pissed.
"I hear you're going out tonight."
"That's right." Squall had to look away.
"Are you dating her?"
Squall blinked. Now that he hadn't expected. "What? No, of course not."
The blonde walked into the room slowly and he stopped when his chest touched Squall's arm. The brunette turned to face him.
"Are you lying to me?"
Seifer really thought that he and Fujin were a couple?
He stared into those green eyes and his hand toyed with the hem on Seifer's shirt. "No." He said. "She wanted to take me out to get laid." He added with a grimace.
Seifer's scowl lessened and then he half smiled. "Really?"
Squall half smiled back. "Really. Apparently I act half dead most of the time and its what I need."
"Huh, well…." He leered at Squall suddenly. "All you need do is ask."
Squall leaned back out of reach and he gave Seifer a look.
The blonde shrugged. "Can't blame a guy for trying." He looked at Squall's shirt for the first time. "That's what you're wearing?"
Squall followed the gaze. "Yeah, what's wrong with it?"
"For a start the buttons are done up wrong."
Squall pulled the garment out in front of him so he could see for himself and then he quickly started to undo them again. Seifer's eyes were on his newly revealed skin.
"And secondly it's a terrible shirt." The blonde walked around him to look in Squall's wardrobe.
"Since when were you an expert?"
"You don't have to be an expert to see that that shirt is hideous and besides…" He turned and winked at Squall. "You're gorgeous and you should wear something… sexy." He turned back to Squall's wardrobe.
Squall looked down at the floor, a blush filling his cheeks at being called gorgeous.
"Aha here we go." Seifer pulled out a black soft shirt that buttoned up with only three buttons leaving the neck open and some skin visible above Squall's belt.
The brunette slipped into it. "I've never worn this, it was a gift for my birthday."
Seifer raised an eyebrow. "Huh, never thought they would have good taste."
Squall scoffed and shook his head. He did the three buttons up and looked down at himself. "I don't know." He touched the bare skin at his collar.
"Well I do." Seifer manoeuvred Squall in front of his full length mirror on the back of his bedroom door.
Squall squirmed in the material, tugging at his arms and shifting it about.
Seifer stood behind him looking over Squall's shoulder. "There, no one will be able to resist you."
"Okay." He agreed doubtfully.
There was a knock at the door. "That will be Fujin." Squall took two steps towards the doors then he glanced back at Seifer who was still looking at him like he never wanted him to leave and was about to drag him into the bedroom.
"I should get the door." He said, while still standing facing the blonde.
Seifer nodded so he turned and headed for the door.
"So the plan is… what? Find some stranger and fuck his or her brains out."
Squall had stopped again when Seifer spoke. "That's the idea."
The blonde didn't say anything else.
"If…. You don't want me to go…." Squall started to say, not sure how to finish the sentence.
The knocking go more insistent. Squall started moving towards it again.
Seifer suddenly walked forward quickly grabbing Squall's arm, pulling him into his arms and kissing him. Squall's hands tightened on Seifer's shoulders as he let the blonde kiss him and then he slowly started to kiss back and his arms wound around Seifer's neck and his hands into his hair. His hands wandered under the shirt that he had just dressed Squall in.
"Squall! I know you're in there!" Fujin yelled through the door. "You promised me and I'm not leaving until you come out."
Seifer broke the kiss and spoke against Squall's lips. "She's not kidding you know." He whispered.
Squall managed to untangle himself for Seifer and turned to finally open the door.
Fujin stood with her hands on her hips. "Took long enough."
"Yeah." He looked embarrassed. "Sorry about that."
"And you're not even dressed yet."
"I am." He defended.
She looked down. "Most of your buttons are still undone."
He followed her gaze to see that she was right. "Ah." He yelped, turning he frowned at Seifer who just grinned at him.
"What are you doing here?" She scowled at Seifer.
"Well we're going out."
"Err well…." Squall squirmed.
She started shaking her head. "Oh no you're not getting out of this, I said I'm going to get you laid and that's what I'm going to do."
"Couldn't he stay in and get laid?" Seifer asked.
She frowned. "What?" She then looked down to see that Seifer had entwined his fingers with Squall's, they were holding hands. "Oh." She said and sighed. "I was looking forward to going out too."
"We can still go." Squall said.
Seifer frowned. "What?"
"If Seifer can come too." Squall looked over his shoulder at the blonde.
"Sounds good to me." He agreed.
She smiled again. "Do your buttons up first and then let's go."
"I can't believe you didn't invite me to come with you guys, you know." Raijin sat in the cafeteria the next morning.
"Trust me I wish I had." Fujin said. "All I had to do was sit there and watch those two necking." She shot a look to her left.
Raijin nervously tried to keep his eyes on Fujin. "Do you guys have to do that in here, you know? People are trying to eat."
Seifer managed to detach his lips from Squall's throat for a second. "Huh?"
"Did you hear a word we've been saying?" Fujin asked.
"No." He grinned.
"They said we shouldn't do this here." Squall said from his seat in Seifer's lap.
Quistis and Rinoa were sitting at the nearby table and their eyes looked like they would fall from their head.
Seifer turned and waved at them with a cocky grin.
Squall rolled his eyes. "I think we should go."
"Before we give people a heart attack." He pointed to Rinoa's table.
Seifer scoffed. "So? Who cares?"
Squall stood and took Seifer's hand, tugging on it. "Come on, we'll go to my dorm. I still have-" He glanced at the wall clock. "…An hour before I really should get some work done."
Seifer sighed and waved at his friends, letting Squall pull him out of the cafeteria.
Raijin shared a look with Fujin. "I knew this would happen, you know? We shouldn't have let Squall get this close, now I'll never be able to talk with Seifer without Squall in his lap, you know?"
Fujin shrugged. "They're a new couple that's all, they're get over it just give them… err a year…"
"A year?!" Raijin stared. "I'm not sure I can take it, you know." He held his head his hand and rubbed forehead.
She smiled. "We could always get new friends."
"Really?" Raijin looked interested.
"Yes, I'm sure Quistis and co. would be willing to fill the void that Squall left behind."
Raijin frowned. "That's not funny, you know."
She put on a serious expression. "I'm not kidding."
He studied her carefully. "You're… not?"
She dropped the serious expression and smirked at him.
He sighed. "You're so mean to me, you know." He got up from the table and slunk away.
