serai: Casey Connor (Casey)
My first post at DW! Hello!

This is for [personal profile] addie71, on the occasion of her birthday. (The title is a prompt from a drabble box, and will probably change eventually.)



Tease


Casey kept his gaze down as his feet crunched through the light snow, his breath puffing crystalline, and smiled to himself at the sound of Mother's engine as the GTO roared off into the night. The taste of Zeke's mouth, with that dusty tobacco tang, was still on his, and he'd almost reached the back gate when he looked up and stopped with a painful start - Claire Stanton leaned against the jamb of the back fence gate, smoking a cigarette. A wicked smile curled her lips as she looked past him at the receding taillights, and then down at his flushed face. She'd always reminded him of Shelley Winters, especially in that Lolita movie. Maybe that was the reason he'd never trusted her - she had an air of knowing everyone's secrets that put him on edge.

And with that knowing look, she pushed away from the gate and leaned her face towards his. Feeling a thread of panic, Casey almost pulled back, but Claire only sniffed lightly at his hair and neck, then straightened up, looking like a cat with a canary under its paw.

"Casey," she purred, shaking her head. Then she took a long drag off her cigarette and leaning in again, blew the smoke in a thin stream over the front of his shirt and up over his hair. Straightening up, her smile was softer.

"Lucky for you I decided I needed a smoke," she said. She took his chin lightly in her hand, and Casey had to clamp down to keep from trembling. She moved her thumb gently near his lips. "So," she said, and a dark grey roar filled his head at her next question, "is he a good kisser?"

Oh god, oh fuck me, his brain stammered and stuck there, fear chittering like an insect behind his eyes. He managed to stay still, he didn't know how but he did. He could feel his skin burning, but the air was biting cold so maybe that wasn't so suspicious. More it was that look in her eye, like she knew exactly what was going on. Goddammit, Connor, he thought desperately, you had one job to do.

He opened his mouth, not knowing what he could say. Not like this, he thinks, terrified at the humiliation of being exposed by his mother's friend ten feet from the kitchen door. But Claire gave a little laugh, let go of his chin, and instead stroked his hair from his forehead with her fingertips.

"My brother fell in love when he was seventeen," she whispered. "He had to leave town because of it. I haven't seen him in twenty years." She smiled sadly and touched the tip of his nose. "Your secret's safe with me, Casey."

Rigid from the effort of keeping calm, he let out a long breath and closed his eyes. "Thank you," he murmured, opening his eyes, and suddenly he was sorry he ever mistrusted this woman, with her candy-hard shell that turned out to hide a butter-soft heart. Just like Shelley Winters. "Claire, I -" he began, but she shook her head and shushed him.

"I just hope he treats you right," she said. "Go on inside now." Casey ducked his head and walked into the yard, headed for the back door, "and Casey?" he stopped.

A huff as she blew smoke out. "You let me know if he doesn't." Casey held his breath, thrown off for a moment by the feel of someone he hardly even knew having his back. After a moment, he nodded, and went inside.

Zeke's laugh is low and hungry as he catches Casey by the waist when he slumps against the door. "Whoa there," he murmurs, smiling into the damp of Casey's hair. He runs his lips over along overheated skin. Casey's gasping, and Zeke sees him wince with a strangled little noise. "You okay?" he whispers.

Casey nods. "Just gimme a sec." Zeke nuzzles him and waits until he's got his breath back. Casey opens his eyes and turns to him, and Zeke feels his blood throbbing. Because now that he's come, Casey's apprehensive again... )

August
by Serai



In the darkest hour of the night, Zeke wakes with a start from a dream where he was standing at the mouth of a dark tunnel, unwilling to enter but knowing it would swallow him whether he did or not. Now he blinks into the darkness, disoriented, but his racing heart calms when he feels the warm body in his arms. The smell of the bed, bitter from their repeated bouts of fucking, makes him smile - until he remembers... )

For [livejournal.com profile] mews1945, on her birthday. I hope you're having a lovely day, sweetie. Feel better!


NOTE: This is NOT the end of the story. Really. Keep that in mind.

That said, enjoy!





Miracles
by Serai


Outside the penthouse windows, the blizzard still rages. Nine hours it's been, and the weather reports all say it'll be going for another three days at least. From this high up, Lake Shore Drive is invisible, but the orange glow of the streetlamps far below echoes up through the storm, turning it into a gently flickering, flashing blanket of gold that renders Lake Michigan invisible, just a barely sensed expanse of emptiness beyond the chaos. Zeke sits against the headboard of his bed, watching the wild movements of wind and snow, and for the first time in ten years, he wishes he had a cigarette... )

Saturday
by Serai


Saturday has been Zeke's processing day since he first started cooking and selling scat. He spends a few hours in the boathouse, usually in the afternoon, emptying the end receptacle of his rig, grinding the contents to a fine powder, and then packaging it using the big boxes of cheap Bics he picks up at the Walmart on 8th Street. When that's done and he has his weekly inventory ready, he spends some time cleaning the rig piece by piece, unplugging or unscrewing each component and washing it with care. The whole thing has to be spotless for the next batch, because Zeke doesn't hold with impurities in his product. Sure, it's a shit excuse for a drug, but it's well-made shit, and that's what his customers expect. Not that they'd know the difference, but he has his pride.

He's gotten a late start today, though, and he's still finishing up lunch when the doorbell rings... )

No, this isn't the one I was talking about the other day. That one's still cooking.

Warning: this one gets into a dark place. So be prepared.






Snake


Casey stands at the kitchen window, looking out into the night. The moonlight washes the branches of the oak at the boathouse's door, flickering in the leaves. It pours through the glass, lighting the pale tiles. The moon's face looks down at him, with that expression that he's always wished was gentle concern, as if there were someone watching over him. He knows it's not so, but he wishes it were... )

Off [livejournal.com profile] naemi's prompt: morning sex. Thanks, girl!





Dawn

He arches his back and moans, the sizzling rush of water pounding his skin, hands gripping his hips, holding him steady as the sweet, rich madness of orgasm barrels down on him. Words echo in his ears (love you, love you so much) and he cries out, wet soft lips warm mouth sucking him, pushing him up, up into the light, endless light, brilliant pulsing in time with his slamming heartbeat and and and...

Even as it fades, Casey reaches out for it, trying desperately to catch hold, drag it back, stay in that light forever, but it's gone, gone...gone, leaving him gasping and cold in the rising dawn, the sound of the California surf sighing softly through the window, and his arms tremble as they close around the space where once a lover lay warm in his arms.

I asked for a prompt to get the taste of angst out of my mouth. [livejournal.com profile] danae_b thought "taste" would be a good prompt. I thought so too.

*sigh*






Midnight


Zeke stands with his head pressed against the kitchen cabinet, looking down at the glass of water on the counter, the glass of water he can't drink. He rubs his eyes. How many times has he stood here, like this - up against the counter, looking down? His throat closes. Right now the moonlight is shining through the glass, making a faint shadow on the grey tile. Ripples mar the surface as first one droplet hits, then another.

He's tired of this. He wants to sleep straight through the night. He wants to go out to the lake. He wants to look at things in the moonlight. He wants to be what he once was. At least that was known, he understood its contours. He knew the map, but now the terrain has changed. Hours and days and weeks pile up before him, and the color is bled out of his life the way the moon has bled it out of his kitchen.

He wants his mind back. He wants his body back. He wants himself back.

He thinks about making scat. He thinks about the gun. He thinks about Casey's skin, and how his mouth tasted of water, and he's only just now realized it.

Casey jumped as Zeke's hand slapped the door of his open locker. "Casey," he said, his voice lowering into that tone, the one that made anyone around him tense up a notch. The one that said the claws were out, and Zeke was going to scratch somebody... )

I think popping out those little 3-sentence squibs may be having an effect. Late last night, this showed up. Written in response to [livejournal.com profile] naemi's prompt: mesmerizing





Glow
by Serai


Casey looks down at Zeke, and bites his lip at the sight of that body doubled underneath him, all that hard strength opened willingly for him. Zeke's skin shines with the sweat breaking out over his body, luscious and brightening in the slowly rising dawn. The dark golden eyes are staring out blindly... )

“You’re certifiable, you know that?” Zeke’s leaning against the tiled wall, arms crossed. He wishes for the hundredth time that he could see the way Casey does, because he has no idea what the guy’s going for here.

“Shut up,” Casey answers, smiling down from his perch on the ladder...

So, all of a rush, this was finished. It went its own way, as they always do. Make sure you've got a box of tissues handy for this one.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fantasy_fan, [livejournal.com profile] yeuxdebleu, and [livejournal.com profile] addie71 for their help on this one. Now the boys want to show you something...






Steam
by Serai



The road rolls away under Mother's wheels, slush spraying against her undercarriage. Casey can hear it, a faint tss tss tss sound under the roar of the GTO's bitch engine. The sky is pale gray, its light lying over the white landscape like a soft whisper of a blanket. He chews his lip a little, hoping the air will stay clear. It isn't supposed to snow again until Monday, but you never know... )

Chasm

Zeke leans his head against the tiles of the handicapped stall. He got rid of Erik and Ted as quickly as possible, and then slipped in here to try and deal with what he's just seen. The cold tiles feel good in a distant way, as his mind reels and heart pounds... )

Zeke's been acting strange lately, Erik thinks, jittering as he waits for Ted by the lunch tables outside the cafeteria. They're supposed to go find the guy and load up on some scat for the weekend, but Ted's ass is dragging as usual. Thus the ruminating while he waits.

All spring, Zeke has seemed a little off... )

Confession
by Serai


The kiss is slow and damp, their breath deep, fast and then slowing, slowing. Casey winces a bit and shifts his shoulder, and Zeke rolls onto his back. They end up with Casey half lying on him, an arm encircling his chest. He sighs, listening to Zeke's heartbeat, breath running across hot skin, cooling.

"I gotta tell you, Case, this is really fucking weird for me," Zeke drawls lazily. He runs his fingers over Casey's shoulder and down his arm.

"It is?" Casey raises his head to look at Zeke in the dark.

"Does that surprise you?" Zeke asks, his eyebrows quirking.

"I don't know," Casey says. "You've never done this with anyone else?"

Zeke shakes his head. "Nope. Not with a guy. Never even thought about it." He puts his hand to Casey's face and runs his thumb back and forth along his cheekbone. "Don't think I ever would have."

Casey closes his eyes. "You still came on to me, though," he says, moving his cheek against Zeke's hand.

Zeke hums agreement. "Didn't seem like a problem, somehow," he murmurs, lifting his head. "Guess I don't care about your plumbing." His breathing deepens again as he kisses Casey, and rolls him slowly over onto his back. He moves his mouth to Casey's neck, his breath heating the skin of his shoulder. Casey tilts his head back as Zeke sucks at his skin there, and thrusts a little against him. "You make it easy not to care, Casey."

The mouth answering him is fever-hot, Zeke feels that sudden surge, and there's nothing more to be said.

Welcome
by Serai


Casey backs up against the door as Zeke leans into him. He’s still hot and shaky from the ride over, from the dirty little interlude behind the gas station, but even so, he’s on guard as well. He can’t completely trust this guy, not yet. Still, here he is, overshadowed by that long, sinuous body and hot, amused look. The soft lips graze his... )

Leather (Pt. 2)

Casey runs his fingertips against the rippled black surface of the jacket folded on the bed next to him. The heat of Zeke’s skin presses against him all the way up to his back, where his lover’s up on one elbow, stroking Casey's arm with his long fingers... )

The song is part of this, so you know.





Scream
by Serai


You’re my silence.
You stop my mouth.
The words want to find you,
but because of you
I can’t let them out.
They batter at my skull,
crying to be set free.
I keep them caged,
safe, where their wings
won’t shatter the balance
we’ve achieved. Forget
the sound of words,

your eyes tell me. Stay
here in the darkness
with me.
And I want to
disappear, stilled like a cry.

You’re my silence,
I’m your scream.

Silence me.
