Sethan messes with Kairn's head.
The voice cut sharply through the darkness, making Kairn jump. He tucked his arms against his body and leaned forward, squinting into the night.
"Is that you, Sethan?" Kairn hissed. He took a step forward. "Where are you?"
A candle flared to life in front of him, illuminating Sethan's face. Kairn let out a yelp as he noticed Sethan's other hand was holding a knife, its point aimed directly at Kairn's stomach.
"I needed to be sure it was you," said Sethan. Kairn watched Sethan pocket the knife once again as he tried to remember how to breathe.
"Why did you want me to meet you here?" Kairn asked, heart still thumping like crazy. "And in the middle of the night?"
Sethan's face gave nothing away; whatever relief Kairn had been feeling was turning to a sense of unease.
Kairn laughed nervously. "I don't suppose you've been raising any more fish, have you? Or maybe rats this time?"
"No." Sethan took a step forward. "I simply wished to...test you." From the light of the candle, Kairn could tell Sethan was no longer looking at him, but somewhere off into the night. "I wished to know if you would come when called."
"Test me?" Kairn's laugh sounded strained, even to his own ears. Sethan made him sound like some kind of animal, a pet. "Did I pass?"
Sethan seemed to ignore the question. He was looking at Kairn again. He took another step toward Kairn and he was so close, Kairn took one back.
"Stop moving," Sethan said, closing the gap between them with one more step. Kairn could feel the warmth of the candle's flame beneath his chin; he tried not to squirm.
"Sethan, what are you doing?"
Sethan seemed to be studying Kairn's face, as if trying to figure something out. When he did, his eyes widened, just a little--a motion so subtle Kairn might not have noticed if he hadn't spent so many hours with Sethan already.
"I'm going to kiss you," Sethan said. "Don't move."
"What?" Kairn squeaked, but he didn't have time to get an answer because Goddess! Sethan had grabbed the back of his head and was actually kissing him. It was over so fast, Kairn barely even felt Sethan's lips, just their after-print when Sethan pulled away, just their absence. Kairn said nothing, his mouth open in shock. He looked up at Sethan.
"Now," said Sethan. "I'm going to do it again."
Kairn felt it that time, Sethan's mouth pressing hard against his own, and Sweet Goddess! was that Sethan's tongue trying to force its way into his mouth? That wasn't right! But then again, a lot of things about Sethan just weren't right, so...Kairn surrendered, letting Sethan open his mouth, letting Sethan just stand there and kiss him in this obscene manner...
Kairn felt suddenly warm in spite of the cool night air. He reached out like he was drowning, his fingers grabbing for Sethan's sleeve, but Sethan brushed the hand away and then pulled back, like Kairn's interference had ruined the moment. Kairn was left standing there breathless, like Sethan's kiss had drawn all the air out of his lungs.
"Why..." Kairn struggled to find his voice. "Why did you want to kiss me?"
"I didn't," said Sethan. "I just wanted to see if you'd let me."
Before Kairn could respond, he blew out the candle, and Kairn was once again alone in the dark.
Sooo, my first milkshake! I hope I didn't make them horribly OOC, Shayna! I just really liked your c. 1244 Necromancer stories and wanted to play with these two XD
