An Angelic Bonding
just all the chapter put together into one piece for easy reading
“Before I go, I must tell you! I love you!” The skinny male blurted out to his forbidden lover as his tender hands touched the masculine face before him, rain falling from above in the storm that they dashed out to be in.
“I do too, but alas, the love is forbidden!” Staring into each other's eyes, their lips met with such passion, such love, that could not be.
Wiggling in the covers as he kept his arm around the long eared male, Kri was humming at the tv as he stayed in the warm bundle that was the couch and blankets. At his feet, Lykos has curled up on a pillow and in a blanket as well, eyes closed as he wasn’t really watching or listening, just enjoying the soft noise of the noise box while the riders cuddled up together.
“Striker, I’ll adore you until the end of time. Please, one day, return back to me.” The younger faced male said, tears mixing with the rain as Krites’s ears twitched, looking over to Folkren who was nestled into the warmth of his arms.
“One day Ren, one day I’ll return to you.” Humming, he moved his hand along Folkren’s side as he pulled him closer.
“Why are we watching this again?” He finally asked, wondering if this was put on for some sort of hint. Though it was not displeasing, they had been getting closer, and closer humans expected that shiny rock on a ring with time.
Eyes glued to the television, Folkren was casually biting down on his lower lip while the two on the screen finally declared their love, but were still torn apart! Resting up against Kri, the elf with a softer heart was definitely into the chick flick more than the other two. Eyes finally spilling over when the other pulled him that little bit closer. A bit closer that the characters in the t.v. couldn't have!
Sniffling up at Kri, at least he wasn't an ugly crier, tears simply trailing down his face much like the rain soaked lovers. "Because it was half off?" Tilting his head slightly, he really didn't have any alternate intentions with the dark angel. Being a sweet man, Folkren was trying to go through the proper steps to seduce the stoic angel. Mostly because he wanted to be careful and not get stabbed along the way. "We could put in something else if you don't like it?" Even if he said this, Folkren was looking up at him much like Lykos might with those big eyes that begged him so.
“I see, is that all?” He asked the male, a gentle touch being given to the face to wipe at the tears, slightly amused by the soft hearted male that reminded him of his overly worried dragon who was snoozing. Probably a good thing as Kri’s eyes returned to the tv to watch a shirt get flung off into the wet roads, followed by the pants and underwear. “It looks like your half off movie is now all off.”
Pointing back to the screen as the love making started, this was slightly entertaining. The passionate sex full of strange noises that left his ears twitching while his fingers traced along the other’s side absentmindedly. Still not that into it, but it always was interesting how humans choose to mate with one another.
“I suppose it’s fine, we can watch it till the end or until we get bored of it.....” Trailing off, his head tilted at one of the scenes. “Huh... wasn’t Ren a virgin? I’d think that would be a bit more pain then pleasure... Thought Striker is taking him like quite a pro, interesting indeed...”
Closing his eyes as Kri brushed away the tears, that didn't stop Folkren from continuing to make more anyway. His heart wasn't one to bleed needless all over the floor, knowing there were darker sides to people than what they said, but his emotions were easily riled up. And flipped, as that became strikingly obvious in the next scene. Blinking at the 'absolutely forbidden' pair, he was thinking they sure had escalated past that one quickly.
Those peering eyes glancing sideways back to his current interest, all he could really do was play the slow game of touch and go with the spontaneous angel. Thinking a wrong step would pull him from all the work he had put in to curling up against their side, sometimes he debated asking those obvious 'what ifs'. Though. Not saying anything to Kri at first, Folkren instead questioned their very... logical response, to the hot and heavy scene that had started up in the downpour.
"It's a lot easier as long as someone knows what they're doing," he commented as casually as possible. Which included pressing extra close under Kri's arm. Because there was no way he was about to look his object of affection in the eye right now. "Or y'know, so I hear. Not like that's something you can just test on a whim."
“That does help, indeed, but it’s like trying to shove a cucumber into a straw. You can’t just ram it in while making passionate sex to your forbidden lover and hope for the best. Is not exactly a hotdog down a hallway situation on screen...” Shifting his gaze from the tv to the other who was aboving eye contact, he questioned that last line, though supposed that too was true. Some people liked seducing one another before that passionate night. He figured Folkren was one of them with how hard he was working to seduce him.
“Maybe we could have a second bond, I heard that’s a good first step in the entire whim thing. A young pair of males I came across did. Something about wanting to be the best of friends with one another or something of the sort... They seem to be getting along swimmingly, quite the happy pair whenever I see them around.” And gayly, but that was no need to bring that up. The ginger and dark haired male were quite the murdery pair, but sweet to a fault when together and often were seen laying and cuddling in the sun when all the work was done.
Snorting at that simile, there was nothing Folkren could argue about that, but it was also just a movie. If the viewers wanted less foreplay and more actions, they'd do it for the views. Settling back down against Kri despite those heavy moans, even the panting moved down into background noise again when they brought up something unexpected. "Really?" he questioned in bewilderment. Of course, he wasn't about to let Kri get into something he didn't fully know about before it was too late. "It's the same as marriage, you know? Not just for two friends to casually run along into. I'd be extra sad if you decided you wanted to break the bond later!" Finally looking up at Kri, the elf clung to their clothes, more determined then normal to make sure this was at least a little more than one of their passing desires in the mortal realm.
“Sure, why not, it seems to be quite fun.” Slowly lowering his hands to rub at the outer leg as he looked back over from the climax of the scene, panning away before any noninnocent fluids were shown shooting all over the place. “It can be for business too, it’s just most commonly a form of marriage.”
He avoided the sad for now, pulling Folkren into his lap to nuzzle into, those fluffy emotions enough for Lykos to pop his head up to try and wiggle into the warm bundle that the two riders were, hands clinging to the blankets like a lurking child.
“I think it would be cute! Then I could feel Folkren friend too!” Wiggling, Kri grinned as those small butt wiggles that were always so cute when spotted. So excited, that his thinner body was moving along to the emotions inside his dragon.
Squinting, Folkren was pretty sure they weren't going to be getting married for a business, but at least they knew about it. Though he did understand, and accepted that stopping Kri from taking justice into his own hands was a near impossible task... maaaybe marriage would help out with that? That still wasn't what he wanted to bond to someone for! Being pulled over for a sweeter moment did ease that worry however.
Thinking about it, it was pretty obvious Kri treated him differently from others, now more than ever considering how many 'experiments' in the name of curiosity and science he was subjected to. They never failed to fluster the elf, but he liked to think he was more comfortable with the antics too. Then of course there was Lykos. A cute boy that he opened the blanket up for to join in the cuddles on his lap as he was on Kri's. "Fine, I'll just stick an arrow in your knee literally, worst case. I'm pretty sure it's easy to tell what I'm feeling even without the bond though. Almost one hundred percent of the time is happy when we're together~ The other one percent is just cause a certain angel likes picking on me."
“But is it actually picking on you if you enjoy it?” Krites asked, rubbing his rather smooth face against Folkren’s as he opened the blanket a bit more for Lykos to crawl up and into the blanket. With the pair of them, snuggle back into Lykos as a small grin graced his face, followed by his warm hands creeping under Folkren’s shirt while Lykos wiggled in his lap. It was all in good fun, and he did get a yes, so he supposed it was time to look into the many bonding ceremony areas and have Folkren and himself pick on when it came closer to the desired time of bonding.
“For now though, let’s finish this half off movie. Their clothes are even back on.” Teasing at the other much smaller than him, Lykos gave his confused head tilts and his eyes returned to the screen, snuggling into Folkren’s lap in a small bun shape, full of curiosity about why the clothes were off to begin with.
Knowing the next thing to do was to finally introduce Krites to his dragons, Folkren had tried dragging all three along, but the other two weren't as interested in actually meeting the pair in person. They could tell by their rider's tingly feels whenever he would take a break from the caravans to go seek out the celestial that they made him happy. That was good enough for them.
Vina, on the other hand, had a different sort of goal than simply meeting Kri to see if she approved of him or not. There was a little white dog with many eyes that she wanted to become acquainted with. Much like her rider, she was quite friendly and social in general, but hadn't found that special someone to become interested as he had. Clearly, this was because she hadn't actually gotten a glimpse of the dragon with the crooked fingers before. The picture Folkren brought back to her had been from his first 'date' with Kri when they had dressed up for an exciting day around the town. Ever since, Vina wanted to go with him to meet the pair, but the timing had never been right.
But now! Now was her chance! Wiggling excitedly, her tail smacked against the ground a couple times as they made their way through the forest together. She wasn't normally big enough for her rider to ride, her head only coming up to his waist, but with a little earth magic, she doubled her size and strength to get them to Kri's mobile home that little bit quicker.
Today, the pair of celestial and dragon sat near a waterfall that roared on. A wonder how they were able to find the water source even with its noise, the path nested behind many trees that all overlapped one another into an intricate design to hide the treasure of a bealoneautiful sight. It was a joy all the same as Krites was waiting for Folkren to find them so they could have a nice picnic near the water, maybe followed by a shallow swim to progress this second bond affections that the other blond rider was set in seeking out. Krites wasn't too concerned either way, accepting the idea that one day the strange elf may want to be free from him, but for now that wasn't the case.
"I found a very pretty spot, Kri! Wanna come see it?" Lykos returned at last, wiggling his tail and entire body as the celestial rider leaned down to pet him.
"Soon. Lykos, you don't want Folkren friend and new dragon friend to get lost… do you?" Gasping at that idea, the pale colored dragon (that never ceased to amuse him) shook.his head.
"No! Never! We shall wait then, for Folkren friend and dragon friend!" Sitting his butt down, Krites nodded as he took the spot on a rather nice rock, red colored eyes gazing out into the treeline to see if the pair could.be spotted.
"They'll be here soon, I'm sure. It is after all our bonding picnic, Folkren wouldn't be late to such an important event."
Weaving through the dense forest, it was an easier run with her rider leaning to lead her around the trees! Vina just had to focus on not tripping over any sudden roots sticking out, or branches that might smack them both over the head. By the time the roaring sound of the falls reached her ears, she had done more damage to the trees than they did to her with her excitement.
"Kri!" Folkren called out to the two at the break in the forest. Sliding off of his dragon, he patted the wiggling dino's side as she returned to her normal size. "I'd like to introduce you to Vina, she's been wanting to meet both you and Lykos for awhile now." Wiggling her emerald spiked tail, the thing was still a dangerous weapon with her small size. Keeping it still as she approached the celestial, he was a lot bigger than she imagined. She knew her rider wasn't on the short side, but this man surely made it appear that way. Sniffing at him, of course, she didn't mind what kind of lover Folkren wished for as long as they were nice. She was a simple girl with simple needs, one of those needs were in front of her now though. The main reason she wanted to attend would be the smaller Lykos that she eyed with a grin. Ah yes, he was just as cute without his little bow too!
As easily influenced by the rule of 'love at first sight' as her rider, she might be considered a bit overzealous, but if it worked out for him surely it would for her as well! "Hello Kri, hello Lykos, nice to meet you." Not offering a clawed hand, instead, she leaned her maned head forward. More so to the side like she was expecting a couple strokes behind her jeweled frill, taking up the habit as Folkren always greeted her with pets there whenever he came back. In his defense, it was a lot easier than accidentally getting headbutted on his return from an energetic dragon.
Starting to lay out the blanket as Lykos went splashing in the water to collect a few small gems that were seen from the surface, shiny and rather big ones that probably washed out from the water caverns the water fell from. It was a pleasant time of waiting until the two came into sight, With Kri just finishing with the layout that overlooked the water so the dragons could splash as they pleased in eyesight. Flattening out the blanket as his head looked up to the familiar call, he was up to his feet with Lykos leading the way, a few gems clutched in his fingers as he went right up to headbutt Folkren hello while staring at the new friend.
“Hello Vina, it’s very nice to meet you. You’re a very pretty dragon.” Cooing sweetly like he did with his own dragon, he gave into those head scratches and rubbed along her head like the excited and fluffy dog he still saw her as. Similarly to Lykos who was wagging his less dangerous tail as he waited to say hello.
“Hello Vina! Are you here for the bonding picnic? Do you want a gem?” Holding up the pretty green gems for her to pick from, he had been a while since he had another dragon friend that was more his size. Already so excited as his tufted tail with small spikes was whipping back and forth as Kri just chuckled and wrapped an arm around Folkren to lead him to the sitting spot.
“You two play nice now, maybe you can show her where you found the pretty gems. There are probably more.” More so suggesting it as he saw those excited tail wiggles, it would take a little bit longer for the food to finish and it was a nice distraction in the meantime.
Yes, something strikingly similar to what Lykos did, was something Folkren was teaching his own dragon to avoid. At least the little white dragon with multiple eyes didn't have any horns to stab him with.
The equally small dragon's slitted eyes went round and sparkly at the sight of the gems being offered. Much like her parents, she was weak to the pretty rocks. Reaching out, she took as many as the male would let her. "Yes, yes please! Thank you!" If she had possibly considered not accepting the bond before, she surely was going to now. "Oooh, yes yes yes, let's go find more. I'm good at finding gems, clearly you are too~" Not to mention they were even more adorable than she thought they were. Yeap. This was going to be her Lykos, she was going to make it so. Gently. And with lots of petting. Probably.
More than happy with the way things were going, Folkren was glad to get those pleasant tingles from his dragon. Though he was questioning that dash of possessiveness he was getting from her. Glancing up to what was going to be his future husband, excitement was clear in the confident way he went back to sit with them. "I think that went rather well. Though I also feel a little bad for Lykos, he might have a slightly crazy fan girl."
“Both are very good dragons, so of course it would go well.” Kri could feel Lykos’s happy tingle as he was off splashing and showing the dam where he found the gems, his finger digging into the softer sand and dirt to tugg them out as Kri chuckled before leaning into Folkren that little bit more.
He wasn’t sure exactly what he thought of the other, but he found them pleasant and that seemed to be enough to make everyone happy. Lykos enjoyed the company from the other, and the not murdery attitude Folkren took on, and Kri liked having some company he didn’t find stab worthy. Which awasn’t as odd as it sounded, as he came across many that he let be in their lives of love and frivolous desires.
“I’m sure he’ll be fine, he does need a dragon friend.” Leaning into the fluffy blond hair, he gave a more gentle if also tentative kiss on Folkren’s forehead, sitting for now to watch them splash about. Soon food would be done and more enjoyment would be had, but for now it was the time to relax as the dragons played. A bonding picnic well set up if you asked him.
Heck, Folkren was used to wearing form fitting clothing, but not things that were restricting too. Hair braided and coiled neatly, his mother had woven in miniature roses much to his embarrassment. How he loved her so much, but like a true mother she still treated him like her cute little baby even on his wedding day. Ah well, he'd still take a picture to bring back for her anyway. Pulling at the tight collar, he sighed as he looked himself over in the mirror once more. He did think he looked good in red, but couldn't help wondering if this was going to be something his soon to be husband would poke fun at him for.
Only one way to find out as he headed out of the changing room. His own dragons were of course sitting and waiting on him already. A small little hoard of animals that consisted of a kangaroo-like dinosaur, strange bird cross, and one proper albino dragon. The trio were the first to excitedly crowd around him, getting laughs and pets out of their rider. Though a rideable flying companion would be nice, it apparently wasn't what he needed according to his smaller sized little family. "Yes, yes, I wasn't gone that long~ Is Kri done? And have the witnesses arrived yet?" Getting a myriad of chirps and short words, it seemed they were too busy playing to pay much attention to their surroundings. Ah well, still good beans as Folkren went to look around outside the small building.
“Kri, why are you taking so long?” Lykos asked as he laid on the floor. Arms crossed as he laid and waited for his rider to finish before joining the small hoard that was becoming the family of dragons and rider. He was a patient bean, more so curious about all the care his usually uncaring rider put into things.
Kri cared about many things, about the souls of the innocent being spared, about cheating on a loved one, about sins. It was so rare for him to care about much else then that though, so the many months of growing fond of Folkren with his curious way was an oddity to him. A nice one, with a new friend who had many new friends! But there were many odd feelings that came up from it, many that left the more calm boy wanting to wiggle about.
“Second bonds are important matters, so things need to be in place. If you have a day where you bonded to another dragon, wouldn’t you too want it to be as perfect as it could be?” Soothing down his high collared shirt, he checked the more fitted sleeves to make sure the buttons were done up as he looked over himself again.
It wasn’t the usual outfit, usually enjoying his looser clothes, but he had outfits for special occasions. Wearing a normal button up under his coat, it was completely hidden by the longer and white high collared jacket with golden buttons and decor. His usual darker clothes were abandoned in favor of white and gold, leaving him looking like the pure being he was meant to be.
“I suppose, should I go get the fuzzy ball and box?” Lykos asked as he stretched out, and all too ready to go.
“Boxy and Isa, but yes. I believe they’re on the couch in the hall. Please bring them to the marriage hall if you’d be so kind.” Following close behind, even i\his usually placid face had emotion to it.
Thanking the both for coming on such short notice and offered to carry Isa to the hall as he was napping on a pillow. Declined all the same, Boxy was kind enough to carry both the pillow and Isa to their spots in the front row. All that was left was the final part. Still taking the part of a follower, Kri broke off to peek his head outside, wondering where Folkren had gone off to.
“Folkren? It’s time.” He called out, eyes sweeping the stairs before he came across the red clad male. “Isa and Boxy were lounging with me, they’re off to be seated.”
Enjoying the reprieve outside, Folkren's dragons preferred the wilderness as much as he did. Expensive items and fancy vases not usually laying around outside to break. Between the wind dragon that loved to fly and the earths that rough housed with one another, they were built to be quiet indoor babies.
Even as they played and waited for the guests to arrive, all four of them looked over at Kri's call. Vina taking the lead first to head over to pet Lykos. She was starting to make Folkren squint at how she looked at him like those lovely jewels she plucked from the earth, but surely that was as far as it went. He doubted she would dare steal the sweet many-eyed dragon. "Oh! Sorry, they must have slipped past everyone." Not unexpected since they were a rowdy bunch when all together.
Humming to himself as he came over, the elf took an appraising look over his soon to be husband. Letting his eyes trail up and down as he made a circle around Kri before finally stopping in front of him with a nod of approval. "I knew you were an angel the first time I saw you~" Chuckling, he grinned up at the celestial. "Let's not keep them waiting any longer than, shall we?"
Watching as the smaller, jewel tailed dragon went by, Kri thought nothing of it but did watch. Wondering if she was off to seduce his dragon once more, but today was not a day he’d squint at her for that, today was a special day that called for special behavior.
“Let’s not, we do have the honeymoon after.” Holding out his hand, he led Folkren back through the door and the short way to the stage area where a single male was waiting for them in their own proper outfit.
Letting Folkren’s hand go as he walked down the aisle, it was a small get event with only the witnesses and their dragons. It was probably for the best, as Krites was still becoming more social but wasn’t there quiet yet.
“Are the two of you prepared?” The male asked, flattening out the book once it was open as Kri nodded and looked to Folkren.
“Are you ready, darling?”
Of all things to say, as angelic as Kri looked, he still had a tendency to tease and fluster Folkren. Still putting his hand in theirs while the other covered his face, he shook his head. He wasn't upset or anything, but really, they caught him off guard with words and reminders like that more often than not.
Mercy perching himself on the taller one's head, he sang a small song of encouragement to his poor embarrassed rider. The feelings were nice and fluffy from Folkren though so he was just as pleased. A little better by the time he arrived in front of the stage, he nodded, giving Kri's hand a small squeeze, hoping that wasn't an endearment meant just for this special moment. "More than ever~"
