Island Misadventure [Leon] - Page 2 59LBSTE

Plump Nut

How could it be so dark on such a cloudless day? It didn't make sense at first, but Leon heard Percy before he saw the boulder up above. His eyes shot up while his heart sank into his stomach as he watched the boulder begin to descend, but no matter how fast he could make his way down that rock, the boulder was always faster, and one strong bump into the rock they were climbing nearly made Leon lose his grip. If not for the adrenaline gluing his fingers to the nooks and crannies they were wedged in, he would've been flung off.

"Percy!" shouted Leon in a wave of panic. He hugged the rock as much as a could, just as he was told, but he was constantly trying to glance up at Percy. He was the only one who could do anything about what was going to happen to them if that boulder was left to fall, and the fear Leon was feeling wasn't just for himself.

But Percy would manage to do it anyway. The boulder that was plummeting down above them had suddenly experienced a change of motion, grazing past them and crashing into the earth beneath with a terrifying boom, leaving a crater indented into the ground. He could feel the gust of wind blow against his face as it passed him by, his eyes glued to the stone as it made its way down below, but once it did, the relief almost made him loosen his grip.

"Alright... alright, okay," Leon sighed, pressing his head into the rock as he gathered his bearings. They really had dodged a bullet there, even though it was their impatience that put them in this situation to begin with. But like all of the trouble they found themselves in, everything ended up fine as long as they both made it out in one piece. "You good, Percy?" Leon called up to him, but there was no immediate answer. Small rocks and dust pitter-pattered past him, making him glance up. "Hey! Did you hear me?! Are you alr—!"

His eyes widened and his heart stopped as he stared up. The stone platform Percy had perched himself on had all but crumbled away to dust, sending his lover into a deadly plummet to the ground below. Leon was struck with terror as he watched it all unfold, but his body moved before he could think about what he was doing. There was no time to think.

With a shuffle and a hop, Leon managed to shimmy down the side of the rock just enough to catch Percy at an angle, but his foothold wasn't reliable at all, and nothing he did could've prepared him for the speed at which Percy was falling. He fell closer and closer until Leon, with his arm desperately outstretched, latched on to Percy's freefalling arm just before he plunged past him.

"Umph! Got you! I got you!" Leon groaned as he felt that awful yank in his shoulder as he caught Percy. He latched onto him so hard that his knuckles began to turn white, but the force of his lover's plummet made Leon instantly lose his foothold, threatening the inky-haired Hoffman to fall with Percy as well. But the adrenaline kicked in long ago. Lab-crafted fingers dug into the rock and held on tightly, but not even a second after losing his foothold had passed before he felt his prosthetic feel the pressure of the sudden weight it was carrying.

The skin around his prosthetic forearm began to warm up, almost giving him this feeling of burning as he held onto the rock. His hand began to smoke and his fingers began to stretch between knuckles, the only thing keeping them from freefalling to the ground beginning to teeter on the edge of coming apart altogether. Leon couldn't feel anything in that part of his arm, but somehow he knew that it was all coming undone, and he needed to do something. But what?

It all happened faster than he could come up with an answer, and the technological strength that kept those two dangling men suspended in the air suddenly lost its power. Not a nook or cranny for his feet to stand on, nor another hand to hold on with, the two of them resumed their dangerous fall.

The wind against their bodies as they plunged to the ground was almost suffocating, but Leon never let go of Percy. The weight of two men in their bulleting descent only stressed the rope that latched onto Leon, snapping it without a pause in momentum. It was all over now. There wasn't a Plan D after all of this, and their last hope has just snapped apart. It all happened so fast that Leon didn't even have time to think, let alone do something about their situation. All he could do was look over at Percy as they fell, wind whipping his hair back into his eyes as they fell down. Desperate, he reeled Percy's body in close, his arm coiled close around his body in their descent. His glaring eyes winced shut, and he held Percy so tightly that he might've broken something if the ground didn't. Leon didn't want either of them to die. Not after everything that's happened!

Thud!

***

The distant sound of waves washing over one another at a sandy beach was the first thing he heard when he woke up. His face caked with dust and sweat, all he could taste was his own salt and dirt. The afternoon sun was overhead, gleaming down at them with its hot, bright rays. The air smelled like iron and his body felt so heavy, it felt like lead.

Leon felt all of these things, but he couldn't do anything other than take it all in for a few moments. His heart and body felt so heavy that he wanted to just continue lying there on his back, sprawled against the ground as he was. It wasn't until he saw some remnants of his own climbing gear still at the spot he was at before that electricity shot through his veins.

"Percy! Ugh!" Leon suddenly sprung up and sat on the ground, feeling the sudden weight of his body hitting the ground in his head. He could feel that some part of him was hurting, but the first thing he did was look to his side, and of course, Percy would be there. More terrified than relieved, Leon instantly crawled over and leaned over him. He could see the blood on his face clearly now, and nothing made him feel more afraid. "Percy? Percy! Hold on!" Leon fretted, a glare on his face as he continued to panic. He held his face in his hands at first but then resorted to pressing his ear against his chest to check for a heartbeat.

Leon's face flushed when he heard the familiar ba-dumping, but there was no telling what his injuries were. Even now, Leon had a hard time telling how injured he was himself with all this adrenaline still lurking in his body. But both of them were alive.

"Haa... thank goodness. Thank God...!" Leon rolled his face over and held his forehead against the heartbeat, his frowning face flushing with intense relief. He must've blacked out for a minute or two—the skin around his arm still felt hot, after all. Not only that, they must've not fallen that far now that he thought about it. He could clearly see his remaining equipment from the ground. Compared to Percy, if they had dropped from where Leon was, it probably wasn't as lethal as he thought it'd be. Still, Leon's chest continued to flood with worry. "Up, Percy! Get up!"

Another minute or two of tense silence followed as Percy remained unresponsive to Leon's attempts to wake him. However, with persistence, the face beneath the mess of peppermint hair and drying blood twitched as his consciousness started to return to him. With a low groan, one eye cracked open, though the other remained scrunched closed. It hurt. His head hurt so very badly that it brought tears and he closed the eye again, tempted to slip back into the blackness. It was a sluggish process bringing himself back to a functioning level, but the pain was actually helping. With a sharp inhale and hiss, he raised one hand to his head and pressed. "Mmmghleon? Leon?" he basically slurred, chancing opening one eye again to try and find his lover, who was conveniently hovering over him.

Despite his evident discomfort, the relief on his face was clear enough. Alive. He was alive, that's all that mattered. "...okay? Are you..." His mind wasn't working right. Everything was foggy and slow, like his brain was full of arctic slush. His whole body felt that way. And even though he wanted to lay there until he didn't feel like absolute crap, he had enough faculties to very slowly sit up.

What had happened? Did they fall? Piecing it together wasn't working. He did know that there was a huge rock that fell. It had been too soon to just go exploring and horsing around. As usual, if Percy felt anything reliably, it was guilt. "Sorry. Uh... Sorry," the Dagger said dully, blindly reaching out to touch his lover, clumsily feeling for damage. It was frustrating. He wanted to look him over, make sure he was okay, profusely apologize, freak out over nearly getting them both killed, attempt to repair the situation, but he couldn't.

This might have been the first time he ever had a magic to run exhaust the power for, but the other symptoms were familiar. The tightening in his throat and the coughs that followed. The agonizing headache. The brain fog, like something had taken a baseball bat to his brain. His body lighting on fire, blazing to the touch. Leon had likely never seen it before, but it was how his body always reacted when he'd tried other methods of magic. His body was starting to reject his new magic. However, unlike before, he seemed to be coming out of it instead of actively succumbing and needing a hospital. Maybe he was just still adjusting.

Plump Nut

Lingering on the line between consciousness and unconsciousness, Leon heaved a sigh of relief when he had saw that Percy had finally come to. Every word he muttered sounded like he was on the brink of blacking out again, and he looked bloody and beat up after what had happened, but he was alive and well enough to say something. When he did, Leon could feel the remaining adrenaline wear off and felt the full weight of his own body sink into itself as he moved around. He laid there on top of Percy for a moment before rolling off of him and sprawling against the ground again, staring up at the sky with this exhausted frown on his face.

"What for? Saving my ass again?" Leon asked rhetorically, raising his broken and suspiciously light prosthetic hand above his face for him to see, and then at the rock they were climbing. This was a world full of magic and sorcery, full of danger and mystery. It was a place where the path to happiness and fulfillment were littered with prizes if you had the strength to seize them, but where did that leave them?  Sorcerers didn't have to fret over a boulder falling down on top of them—they probably wouldn't find joy in rock climbing to begin with—but it was a life or death situation for men like the two of them. Percy was lucky to be talented enough to keep up with other wizards with his amazing technological, scientific, and physical abilities, but at what cost? It was at times like these that Leon remembered just how bitter he felt about magic. "Stop apologizing for everything, idiot..."

***

Leon laid there on the ground next to Percy for about fifteen minutes before he convinced himself to get up. Unfortunately, there was never a good way to crash into a hard surface, so every part of his body ached. His prosthetic forearm stretched and smoked in ways it wasn't supposed to earlier, and now he could barely convince his body to move the fingers, let alone use its other functions. Something definitely had broken, but maybe the two of them wouldn't have come out of this alive without it. In any case, he'd live, and so would Percy as long as he had something to say about it.

With no strength or functioning in his prosthetic arm, Leon carried Percy back to their campsite, the fallen boulder haunting them with its presence so close by. He laid him down inside the tent and sat next to him, looking him over with that usual intense expression on his face. But it was just a look of concern.

"C'mon, man. You need to stay awake, alright?" Leon told him, pulling out a damp rag and gingerly wiping away the blood. "Anything broken? Head okay?"

The fifteen-minute reprieve they both had provided ample time for Percy to blackout again for a little bit, and as he was carried, the motion slowly coaxed him back toward consciousness. It was like he was vaguely aware of it and wanted to do something about it, but his abilities were locked away. There were moments where he could think, and moments when there was nothing again. He mumbled nonsense here and there, like a computer booting up into safe mode after an error, but he generally sounded unhappy that Leon was having to carry him to begin with.

The next thing Percy was really clearly conscious of was being back in the tent. He was a little disoriented as his eyes cracked open, but not as bad as before. It was hard to stay awake, but the intense face looming above him was hard to disappoint, plus the rag cleaning off the blood was cold. Staying awake would be for the best, so he offered a nod. He needed to care for Leon. It wasn't right for him to be laying there while Leon might be suffering.

Taking a slow inventory of his body, Percy determined that he was basically fine. The arm that he'd been caught by was a bit bruised and his shoulder was pretty sore. There were just a couple of bruises and scrapes from grazing lumpy parts of the rock as he fell and from their rough landing. Aside from his own magic beating him up, he was more or less uninjured. "I'm fine," he muttered, still not entirely back to his usual self. "Not hurt. Just a headache," he undersold, leaving out that his brain felt like it was trying to pound out of his skull. Given that Leon had to have caught him to be alive, it was far more likely that his lover was in worse shape.

After a few more moments of gathering himself, the ever stubborn Percy managed to sit up. His eyes squinted over Leon, looking for damage with forced focus and worry. "How about you? Anything broken?" he asked, meaning his fleshy body, but ultimately laying eyes on the obviously trashed metal arm. "Ah, oh no," he said softly, reaching out to touch the stretched joints, then the skin above the connective link. If it was in this kind of shape, what was the rest of him like?

Expecting the worst, he struggled up to his feet suddenly, though he'd fallen once in the process. His normally nigh perfect balance was anything but and his movements weren't very coordinated, but he was alright. "You should lay down," he nearly commanded, stumbling around the tent for things he needed. "Health box..." he mumbled to himself, trying to remember where he put the first aid kit that he also couldn't seem to remember the name of. He found it and then bumbled his way toward the other side of the tent. It was the same for his 'fix-it kit', though his toolbox had a much less official name, at least. He apologized to the empty folding table he knocked over on his way back.

"Off," he barked, meaning his shirt and whatever other clothes needed removing for him to see Leon's condition. He plopped back down on the ground next to his boyfriend, a box of supplies on each side of him and a very serious expression tensing his features. Opening his mouth to speak again, he intended to ask some sort of important question pertaining to Leon's health or the finer details of the situation they just survived, but his mouth was hijacked by a very random errant thought that shocked even him as it came out. "So what do you want me to do?" he asked, referring to their bet, of all things.

When things went south, it was natural that both of them would grow concerned for the other. They'd fret and worry for the other's sake, as most good friends and lovers would, but even that felt like a competition sometimes. Between the two of them, Leon was in much better shape than Percy, and yet it was Percy who insisted on being his boyfriend's caretaker. His injuries weren't completely obvious, but anyone could tell just by the way he walked around that his head was actually mush at the moment. For goodness sake, he apologized to a table of all things. A table.

At first, it seemed like Percy was going to get away with his brain-fuzzed commands, but it all came to a clear stop once he came back with the equipment. A disbelieving exasperation built up in Leon as he watched it all unfold. Any of his protests and complaints were conveniently ignored or dismissed as Percy trudged through the tent, and asking about how he felt was pointless since all he would reply with is "I'm fine" or something of that nature. It was obvious that he wasn't fine, but still he convinced himself and his body to prepare to take care of his boyfriend. Leon only sat there fuming for a moment, deciding not to bark back at him while he was still in his daze, but when Percy barked his last command at Leon to undress, all of the brewing exasperation suddenly boiled over.

Whap!

"You seriously piss me off sometimes, you know that? You're not fine, dumbass. So stop acting like you are... fuckin' hell," Leon planted an impulsive and quick jab square in Percy's stomach, temporarily unconcerned with his current state of well-being. Not allowing room for any sort of backtalk or backlash, Leon forced Percy to lay down on his backside, looking sincerely irritated and even a little upset while doing so. He practically stole the first-aid kit from Percy and sat down crisscrossed beside him, glaring at him without sympathy as he mulled over what an idiot he was devoted to. "Now tell me what's really wrong with you. Say 'I'm fine' one more time—do it. I fucking dare you."

"But Leon, I just need to-- Oof!"

He'd been insistent on arguing with the frustrated man across from him when the unanticipated gut-punch happened. All the air rushed out of him as well as his tenuous hold on his strength and balance, leaving a confused and stunned Percy to double over and collapse, making him easy enough to lay back down. "Didn't have to hit me," he groused. Normally he would have fought more and definitely jumped back up, probably ending in a fistfight, but instead, he just resigned. In a way, he knew he would be no help, but he still very much wanted to care for Leon instead of the other way around. It was Leon who had saved him, and feeling so weak in front of him was never easy.

With eyes squinted in pain, Percy peered up at his angry lover as apologetically as possible, debating what to say. Or trying to. His thoughts were so fuzzy that he could hardly corral them into anything more complicated than feelings. He nearly default said he was fine again, but caught himself and made an effort to come clean. "I exhausted my magic, I think," he said after a moment. Laying down made it harder to keep his eyes open, but he figured closing them would just make Leon shake him. Or maybe he'd blackout again. "I've never done that before but..ah...I think the rock was too big," Percy admitted, scowling. "Feels like everything is slush... Either it's just exhaustion or maybe my body is rejecting the magic," he mused truthfully, not really meaning to but lacking the brainpower to be dishonest.

When he lifted a hand to apply pressure to his forehead, that's when the pain truly registered on his features. Even though he wasn't using his magic, blood started to drip slowly from his nose. "My head is killing me. It feels like it's gonna split open," he huffed. It was actually a little hard for him to hold still. Not that squirming really helped anything, but it was something instinctual and nonsensical.

"Can you...can you distract me? Please, just... anything to take my mind of it," he nearly begged, eyes desperate.

Leon sighed as he looked down at him, eyes softening just a little as he glanced over his fragile-looking boyfriend. In hindsight, maybe he shouldn't have punched a man whose bones looked brittle. But at the same time, maybe Percy shouldn't have acted so punchable to begin with. His logic sound and his reasoning acceptable, Leon decided not to apologize.

It was always hard to see Percy in pain, especially when Leon didn't know very much about how to go about these things other than to slap the bloody things with band-aids, but he had to try. He was just lucky that none of it seemed fatal, or else they'd really be in trouble. Though there wasn't much Leon could do in terms of medical care, he could work with the one request Percy had desperately given him. In fact, there was something that he was stewing over ever since they fell down.

"...Give it another hour or two and we'll see how you're doing. We might just have to go home," Leon dabbed and smudged the blood away from Percy's lips, leaning over and gently carding through his hair again as he usually would when one or both of them needed some comforting. But his eyes seemed to get lost for a moment as he stared at Percy, like his mind was someplace else as the words rested on his tongue. Finally, he said something. "You think you could set me up with another arm or... leg or whatever when we get back?"

It might've sounded like he meant his already-broken prosthetic, but the idea Leon had in mind was far more extreme. Yet, considering that, he seemed exceptionally nonchalant and passive about the suggestion. If anything, he was more invested in Percy's hair and nose than anything else.

Though he might not like to be taken care of very much, he took great comfort in Leon's proximity. Maybe the reason he disliked being cared for was the fact that he had been so many times by others when he got injured or made a terrible decision that landed him in the hospital. However, anything that got him those head pats was something he treasured. Maybe, in this case, it wasn't so bad coming from his boyfriend. It felt nice and eased his pain if only just a little.

When the question finally came, of course, Percy misunderstood him. Because what he was actually asking was so absurd that no logical person, not even disoriented Percy, could come to the conclusion of what the man was asking. "Sure, I can get the one you have working before we leave, then get you a new one when we get back," he said, the small distraction doing its job. Some of the pain left his expression. Sniffling at the slow leak of blood in his nose, he seemed to remember something. "Oh yeah, I have a newer model that could help. It's stronger, but you can't use the..uh..feely skin stuff--"

It had taken a long moment for him to process the entirety of the audio he'd heard. "Wait, why would I give you a leg...?" he asked, drawing his eyes up to Leon in dazed confusion. his head hurt, but it was slowly clearing enough that he was connecting some dots. "You don't need a leg... Is something wrong with your leg? Do you need a leg?!" he yelped, sitting up partially to search for Leon's legs in alarm. He'd been so very close to arriving at the right conclusion, but then his brain swerved in the wrong direction. This was proving his brain was still being dumb since he knew Leon had walked them back to the tent...

Without losing focus on his hair, Leon gently pushed Percy back down onto as back as quickly as he jerked up. Yeah, asking to be amputated was an absurd idea to some, but Leon had seen the benefits of going completely mechanical up close and personal. Without his prosthetic arm, it was hard to say that either of them would've even been here right now. It was only about half an hour of thought, but Leon seemed content with the idea.

"Uhh... no. No—listen—I just thought... you know, as long as it's from you, maybe getting one or three more prosthetics isn't such a bad thing?" Leon continued, continuing to dab away at the blood and card through Percy's hair. He knew that this entire conversation was going to be an uphill battle. "I mean, sure, my arm's busted right now, but without it, I don't think we could've gotten out of that alive. Don't you think that ought to count for something?"

Percy fell into a blank silence, as if his brain just couldn't assign meaning to the words Leon had just spoken to him. Leon seemed serious. He probably would have thought it was a joke if he'd been at himself, but right now he could only assume he'd understood incorrectly or misheard. However, as he circled the drain of the concept, his face ran the gamut of emotions, from disbelief, to anger, to disgust. It hovered at disgust though anger was trying to make a comeback.

"Hold on... you mean..." he started flatly, then seemed to flare like embers in the wind. "You want me to cut off the rest of your perfectly good limbs and replace them with metal ones?" Percy's voice strained under the force, his words a bit sharp. It was the Dagger's turn to get testy, aggravated by the persistent pounding in his head. "No. No, Leon, that's stupid," he fumed, only remaining on his back because he knew he'd be pressed back down. It probably looked funny, seeing him simply laying there looking so pissed off. "You're an idiot. That's the most idiotic thing you've ever asked. Did you hit your head?"

Of course, Percy wasn't thrilled with the idea. Leon knew it was going to be difficult to convince Percy to work on him, after all, it was no ordinary request. He had lost part of his arm in the war, and even now the scene haunts him in his dreams and violently rouses him out of slumber. Not a day had gone by where he hadn't woken up in a cold sweat from that same nightmare, replaying in his head every night. But despite that, Leon was still oddly eager to have his request fulfilled. Somehow, the trauma from his first prosthetic and the potential existence of new ones was... separated.

"What's so idiotic about it, huh?" Leon suddenly stopped playing with Percy's hair and stared at him, "I don't have much going for me right now, Percy. But this changes everything, and I know you can do it. There's no reason not to..."

Even though Percy was visibly upset with him, Leon was careful not to reciprocate the same frustration. The inky-haired Hoffman was nothing but passionate when it came to things he actually cared about, but with Percy being in the shape he was, maybe avoiding an argument was in his best interest. Still, Leon continued to insist on his bodily changes, gingerly cupping Percy's cheek in his hands and holding it attentively. Affectionately.

"I'm telling you that this is the best thing for me right now."

Leon's serenity and affection that contrasted the insane thing he was asking irritated Percy further. This disgust twisted back into anger. "Wha- You have nothing-- There are so many reasons--" he blustered for a moment, trying to wrap his goopy brain around it. He didn't manage to get many of the sentiments out before his brain jumped to the next one. He pressed his palms to his head as if the pressure push the thought pieces back into place and would ease enough of the pain so he could make a valid argument to his delusional boyfriend.

How long had he been thinking about this?

Not one drop of blood from another person outside of his own and Leon's had touched him the day they went into battle. All the blood he saw on his hands when he closed his eyes most nights was either from strangers brought in screaming to the tent in the days prior or from Leon screaming in his makeshift rock shelter. He'd had so much of Leon's blood on him that, to this day, blood made him even more squeamish than usual, especially the thought of Leon's blood.

Percy reached up and angrily swatted the hand away from his face, expression darkening further. How dare he act so affectionate while asking something so asinine. "I'm no mad scientist. I won't cut off perfectly good arms and legs, especially not from someone dumb enough to think something like that," the man scowled, sitting up and scooting clumsily away from Leon. "I only gave you that metal arm because the other was already gone. It was better than a nub."

He was quiet for a second, turning his fiery eyes away as if just looking at Leon annoyed him. He smeared his own blood away from the back of his hands just as it reached the crease of his lips. "I won't do it. And even if I could, my hands shake so bad from dealing from the first arm--" he cut himself off, momentarily overcome with emotions so strong that his head started to spin. It didn't matter if he could or not. The point was that he wouldn't. "How could you ask such a thing when I still hold you at night to keep you from flying apart?" His words were quiet, but not calm. Nothing about Percy or his body language was calm.

It seemed like the more they talked about it, the less it felt like talking. At some point, it was lingering on the fine line between a conversation and a heated argument. When Percy swatted his hand away and blatantly rejected Leon and his ideas as he scooted away, Leon was left with nothing but a frustrated look on his face. He knew something like this would happen, but some part of him still fell into a funk when the conversation didn't go the way he wanted it to.

"Wanting something better than what you've got isn't mad science. What am I supposed to do? Wait until we get into another war and then start making changes?" Leon said sarcastically, letting the words hang there as irritably looked away from Percy, brooding over the thought.

It took a moment for Leon to realize what atmosphere was being created in that cozy tent of theirs, and how the brewing argument wasn't helping either of their aching heads, especially Percy's. Their cute little day of play had already turned sour, but maybe the rest of it could be salvaged.

"Look, I'm sorry, okay?" Leon looked at Percy indignantly, scooting over in front of him with a small, unwavering irritation in his eyes. It was clear that he hadn't personally moved on yet, but wanted to do it anyway. For once, he seemed insincere. "Okay?"

"Another war...?"

The two-toned man almost lost it for a second, his fists clenching hard enough to carve half-moons into his palms. Leon didn't need to sucker punch him in the gut again for him to feel that one. His glare remained averted while he simmered, but like always when he was furious with no outlet, his right eye started to water. It was an unfortunate and embarrassing trait, but there was nothing he could do about it. Without uncurling his fists, he pressed his hands against his eyes and left them there. Surely Leon knew that was a little far.

Maybe he did, because moments later the dark-haired man was backing off.

It took a moment for Percy's anger to subside enough for him to respond. He didn't want Leon's placating apology, nor did he particularly want him moving so close. He'd put some space between them for a reason, even if it had been somewhat on instinct. It was only when he'd cooled off that he finally lowered his hands and rose his eyes to look at Leon with a sigh. It was a good thing he was in love with this infuriating man.

Percy wanted nothing more than to make Leon feel better about himself and help however he could, but he had lines he wouldn't cross. Mutilating his lover was one of them. He'd give him every gadget and weapon he created, but he wouldn't remove perfectly good limbs or modify a healthy body. Anyone that knew him was aware of how stubborn he could be once he'd decided something. He could be just as stubborn in an argument and had a hard time letting things go, but luckily, he didn't feel up to it. "Yeah, okay. I'm sorry, too," he said back, probably about as insincerely. It was unclear whether he was apologizing for what he'd said or that Leon felt the way he did, but that didn't really matter did it?

Now that the pressure in his skull had built a little from frustration, Percy hit his limit of being able to cope with it. "Can you scoot the uh....the...uh...health box over?" he asked, still knowing that term was wrong but unable to grasp the right one. A shaky hand reached out, waiting for the item. "I think I packed some pain killer injectors."

Wordlessly, Leon fulfilled Percy's request by scooting the "health box" over to him. He felt some type of way about not being able to care for him as well as Percy could for him, but there was little he could do to remedy the situation other than to do as his lover told him.

As much as Leon continued to visibly brood over their last exchange, like most of their arguments, his anger and frustration seemed to almost evaporate, leaving nothing but concern behind. It seemed like every time he used that magic, he was always left in a worse condition than how he started. It happened at the Bellian-Pergrandian battlefront, too. Even though Leon had blacked out for most of it, he could still vividly remember the odd but grizzly bruises that were left behind.

"I know I said to wait a couple of hours, but maybe we should leave sooner," Leon tried to subtlety scoot a little closer to Percy along with the first-aid kit, looking at him gingerly, "we should come back some other time."

As he blundered around in the kit until he found what he wanted, he eyed the man sneaking closer to him and shook his head slightly. "I'll be okay once this kicks in. I forgot about them," he said, lifting one of the injectors. Now that he was properly distracted with the device, most of his own anger and aversion to Leon's closeness also evaporated. "I said this would be a nice little trip for us and I meant it," Percy insisted, though his coordination was proving to be much more irritating than he'd anticipated. His hands just fumbled it every time he tried to turn it and aim it at his own neck.

Groaning in agonized frustration, he grabbed one of Leon's hands and gave the pain killer to him. "Can you do it, please?" he asked, defeated by his own body. With one finger he indicated a place on his neck, under his ear where it would work the fastest. "Just put it up against my skin and press. There's one for you, too, if you need it." Regardless of any lingering testiness over their unresolved spat, Percy looked ready to crawl into his lover's arms at any moment. The way he craved affection when he was feeling bad would never change.

Watching Percy fumble around with the painkiller for longer than usual was beginning to look more entertaining than worrisome, even those it was at the expense of his lover's patience. Inevitably, Percy eventually insisted that Leon do it for him, to which he quietly obliged. Just as he was told, he injected the painkiller right where Percy had shown him.

Although Leon had his fair share of pain and discomfort on his end, it was nothing a little rest and relaxation couldn't remedy. He was a tough guy who was lucky enough to only suffer from falling from a smallish height, whereas Percy was faced with the brunt of the threat. Seeing him like that, part of Leon felt a little undeserving of their limited supply.

"It's alright. You're way more fucked up than I am," Leon looked at the painkillers curiously before returning his attention back to Percy. He wasn't entirely sure whether or not it was "safe" to get all touchy again, but Leon was willing to test the waters. All of a sudden, he cracked a playful smile and poked Percy's cheek. "You know, about earlier, I guess you were technically ahead of me..."

It seemed the imminent "danger" had passed, since the poke to his cheek only made him puff out his cheeks in a pout instead of smacking it away. "When I asked about this same thing, you punched me," the Dagger sulked, rubbing his middle as if it still hurt. It didn't. Percy scooted closer to Leon, also a little awkward about asking for more touches post-disagreement.

"Actually, it doesn't count if the person in the lead passes out and falls off the rock," Percy said with a frown, disliking admitting defeat but feeling it was best this way. "You were highest up last and only let go I'm assuming to catch me. So... you win," Leon's lover said, though his expression was like a child who was just forced take bitter cough syrup. At least this expression was better than the angry one or the pained one. The painkillers were doing their job quickly. He was already starting to feel better, which boded well for their trip. "What're you gonna make me do?"

The circumstances of their competition were... difficult, to say the least, but when Percy insisted that it was in fact Leon who was the winner of their race, he didn't dispute it. Instead, he wore this devilish, no-good smirk on his face as grabbed and pulled Percy so that he was pressed against his chest. It was clear that he already had something in mind.

"I'll have to order the stuff first, but I'm, thinkinnn'.... cat ears?" Leon's smirk quickly turned into a grin as he embraced his lover from behind. He pecked the corner of Percy's lips, arms gently squeezing and trapping him against his body. "Or maybe find a nice spot outside once we get back? I haven't made up my mind just yet, y'know?"

From the moment they stepped onto this island up until now, the thoughts resting at the back of his head hadn't changed. If anything, they were progressively becoming more and more wild the longer they were staying together.

"Cat ears..?" Percy asked, one brow lifting. He turned his head just as Leon gave him the lip-corner kiss to give his rather devious-looking boyfriend a confused look. "Outside?" If he could forget he packed painkillers into the kit he couldn't remember the name of, he definitely wasn't connecting the dots between cat ears, outside, and whatever Leon had in mind. Thankfully, once the medicine really kicked in, hopefully that would clear. Percy could still be rather naive about some things even when his brain wasn't mashed potatoes, though.

What he hadn't forgotten, however, was his hard-to-get game he'd been playing in the ocean pre-crab debacle. Perhaps it made even more sense now, since he and Leon had just had a little tiff and he didn't want to come off as easy. Turning his head away as he had before, it was as if he was refusing any more kisses, though he made no move to free himself from the trap of his lover's arms. "Run me through your options and maybe I can help you decide? You better not be wanting me to wear cat ears to work or something," Percy scoffed, even though he hadn't returned to work yet. Sometimes he wished he never would, which was a strange concept to unpack.

Percy could be... dense, but it was one of the things that made it so fun to play this guessing game with him. Though their back and forth never lasted too long since Leon was always so straightforward about what he wanted and what was on his mind. But sometimes he'd put the effort in to be vague and ambiguous.

"Not to work, no. Do you have any idea what's been on my mind?" Leon persistently continued to try to kiss Percy around his lips, letting his hand slide underneath his shirt and glide across his skin as his silvery voice brushed against Percy's ears. His prosthetic seemed so busted that he could barely move his fingers, but still they played their part in keeping his boyfriend seated. "How do you feel about the balcony? Or cuffs? With how much you pay me, I could definitely get some higher quality stuff for you."

Just as quickly as Percy was forgetting about the pain, so was Leon. It was hard to tell whether it was impressive or frightening how quickly the mood could change between them, and how often that mood often turned indecent. Neither of them had been at "work" for a while now, or at least the work they did before the war, but Leon's voluptuous headspace had suddenly made the idea very appealing. A cat-eared, handcuffed Percy at work... what a sight that would be!

As usual, Percy was weak to his advances, just as he always had been since the Singles Night. The kisses, his hands slipping over his skin, the tone of his voice so close to his ear... the man shivered in Leon's iron grasp. If anything, with their more frequent steamy experiences as of late, Percy was maybe a little more sensitive. Still, he tried to resist, though he was doing a poor job of it.

"Oh," he replied as the dots connected, turning his head so Leon couldn't see his mad blushing. He might be playing keep-away with his lips, but he definitely tilted his head in a way that exposed his neck in a very enticing way. "So...the cat ears are for that, huh? You want to see me in cat ears? That would...turn you on?" Percy asked, recalling telling Leon about the LARPing and his elf ears. Had that sparked something within his boyfriend? Finally chancing facing his lover to watch his expression, his lips curled into a smile. "Handcuffs on the balcony with cat ears? Is that what you're into?" he asked, now looking a bit evil himself. "Would you want me to meow? Call you master? What would you want me to wear?"

His hands continued to glide up Percy's chest, fingertips carefully tracing the unblemished features he had long since memorized, poking and prodding with playful interest. While Percy bashfully turned his head away during all of the special attention, Leon looked at his neck with an indelicate captivation. He pressed his lips against it, running them down along its edges and around his jaw, but never quite kissing him. Instead, he daringly mouthed his next words into it.

"Mhm," Leon replied simply, his lips continuing to graze over his neck but his eyes fixed on the face that tried to escape him and what was unfolding underneath the tent of theirs. It was always cute, but the longer Leon played with his body, the antsier he became. It seemed like his hand wasn't just interested in Percy's chest anymore as it began to slide down to the hem of his pants, pulling and tugging Percy's shirt along with it. His gentle, mildly amused smile transformed into this lecherous smirk as he held his lover in place with a look of someone who teetered on the fine line between playing with someone and devouring them. "I don't know—I'd have to think about it. Maybe a tail with nothing else on, or maybe put you in all leather... it's hard. I've only ever imagined you without anything on, you know?"

Suddenly, there was a squeeze down below, where his hand had made it ever clear what was on his mind, but the sudden release leaving much to be desired.

"But you know..." Leon's had lowered, leaving nothing but his deep, husky tones behind as he lifted his face to meet Percy's as he fondled him, "...you don't have to wait until we get back to start callin' me that."

The peppermint head's face turned the same shade as the left side of his hair as he squirmed in tantalized discontent back against the taller man's chest. "Leon...you're a-- Mmgh!-- p-pervert..." Percy teased, though what did that say about him when he was getting just as turned on thinking about it? He'd never thought himself to be kinky, but it seemed the more he was with his lover, the more he learned about himself and his preferences. Cat outfits? Leather? Cuffs? Apparently, they were exhibitionists? The very-much-in-the-closet Dagger should have been concerned, but he wasn't. It was exciting.

Growing frustrated, as he usually did when Leon toyed with him and he lost his already short patience, Percy decided on a devilish plan of action. Still not brave or comfortable enough to try what he was about to do while looking his boyfriend in the eye, he again turned his face away. Nervously clearing his throat, he decided to try out Leon's suggestion. "Alright then...m-master," his voice purred bashfully, trying it out much as he had when he called Leon 'honey' for the first time. It was funny how you put all your sensibilities aside for the person you loved. Normally he would have rather dropped dead than play along with anything like this (aside from LARP, ofc course). He knew he wasn't in the cat outfit yet, but he could tell that his lover was imagining it. "...meow?"
