Chapter One

Chapter Two
Written by Omen-chan and Sakura-chan

A gloveless hand caresses bare skin, fingers running lightly over a collarbone, chest, nipples, stomach. Jaejoong gently presses Yoochun back into the sheets.

Yoochun stares up into Jaejoong’s depthless eyes and swallows, shivering slightly under the contact. He slides his hand along Jaejoong’s jawline before tracing it lightly with his lips.

A pale hand tucks itself into dark hair, shimmering from starlight, and they kiss slowly, almost shy.

“So, how far have your studies on the sea-fiends gotten, Professor?”

Park Hyun Suk sips lightly from his glass and grimaces. “Not far enough, I’m afraid. But the Hunters have been most helpful in bringing in tissue to study. It would be much easier if they could bring the whole creature, but I would never make things that difficult for them.”

A woman’s tinkling laugh interrupts. “You are really much too courteous, Professor! They choose to do what they do. If you need an entire Fiend to play with, then you should get one!”

A man, the original speaker, smiles at her pleasantly, but the smile doesn’t reach his eyes. “My dear, it’s merely a question of practicality. Sea-fiends are rather large. Aren’t they, Professor?”

“Indeed they are, Senator. Some are even larger than the Hunters’ ships.”

The senator laughs at his wife. “You see, dear? Do you suggest they drag the carcasses behind them?”

A hand in a pearly white glove rests gently on Park Hyun Suk’s arm. “Darling. Senator Ming wishes to speak with us about his daughter.”

“Ah, of course. Senator Kim, if you will excuse me, please.”

Jaejoong’s father heaves a deep sigh and finishes off his glass. “I thought I’d talked you out of that ridiculous contract, Professor.”

“I’m afraid not, Senator.” He takes his wife’s arm and moves to the other side of the banquet hall. An older man in simple, dark clothes stands surprisingly alone, and beams at the professor and his wife as they approach.

“Ah, Park. Had enough of the social farce yet?”

“I don’t think it’s as much of a farce as you do, Senator.”

“Such a shame. We agree on so much, but you can’t see these ridiculous parties for what they are.”

Hyun Suk laughs quietly and takes another sip from his glass. “From what my son tells me, you’ve spread your opinions to your daughter. And she’s apparently just as vocal about them as you are.”

Senator Ming smiles to himself. “She’s an intelligent girl.”

“I understand that you were wanting to speak with me about her?”

“I did.”

“Is there a problem with the marriage contract?”

The senator takes the glass from Hyun Suk and sets it on a the floor, uncaring of the possibility of someone kicking it over. “Hualin has been locking herself in her room these past few weeks, and she refuses to tell me what the problem is. Has your son mentioned anything?”

The professor shakes his head, clearly confused. “From what I understand, the two of them are fine friends.”

“Hmm. Maybe that’s the problem, then?”

“How so? Friendship is a solid foundation in a marriage.” Dark eyes turn to twinkle affectionately at his wife.

“It is indeed. But I believe my daughter is quite seriously in love with your son.”

Jaejoong moves his leg from its loose grip around Yoochun’s waist and stares at him, dark eyes lidded. “Yoochun…” Sweaty hands stroke dark hair, cheeks, lips, trying to calm him through the aftershocks. “Yoochunnie…”

Swallowing, Yoochun kisses his fingertips, and tries to slow his shaking. “Was I… Was it okay?”

A soft smile passes over Jaejoong’s full lips, and he tips his head to kiss him. “It was wonderful.”

His heartbeat finally begins to slow, and Yoochun carefully pulls out of Jaejoong, moving to lie next to him. Wrapping his arms around Jaejoong tightly, he whispers, “I love you, Jaejoong.”

“I love you too, Yoochunnie. I love you so much it hurts.”

Junsu shudders awake, a heartbroken plea still on his lips, and stares up at the bulkhead without recognizing it for several minutes.

A light flickers on, but Junsu doesn’t turn to look at the body lying next to him.

“Another bad night?”

Junsu doesn’t reply. It wasn’t a real question, anyway.

“Junsu, when was the last time you had a full night’s sleep?”

“Does it matter?”

“Of course it matters. Your nightmares are getting worse.”

Junsu sits up and grabs his pants from the deck. “I’m going to go clean up. I’m all sweaty and gross.”

Yunho’s voice turns light and teasing, understanding that Junsu doesn’t want to talk about it. “You were sweaty and gross when you went to sleep, too. It didn’t bother you then.”

“That was a different kind of sweaty and gross. Besides, I need to check the schematics again.”

Yunho sighs as he watches his best friend leave their quarters, muttering, “You idiot. It’s not like I don’t know what the nightmares are about.”

Jaejoong makes his fingers dance, watching the play of light on his hands. “I read somewhere that humans used to have stories about them.”

Yoochun’s voice is muffled, buried into Jaejoong’s shoulder. “Stories? Like what?”

“Um…” His brow furrows as he tries to remember some of the things he’d read. “Hunters. And… and lovers. Bears?”

“Those aren’t stories.”

“Those are the shapes they thought they were. The stories came from the shapes.”

“They had Hunters all the way back then?”

“Different kinds of hunters. They hunted animals, not fiends.”

“Lucky them.”

Jaejoong turns on his side, dislodging Yoochun from his shoulder, and grins at him. “I like reading about them. It’s interesting.”

Yoochun’s hand catches Jaejoong’s and kisses it. He deepens his voice and gives his lover a mock scowl. “Maybe if you stopped reading about nonsensical things like that, you wouldn’t have failed the Engineer’s Exam.”

“Your impersonation of my father sucks.”

Yoochun laughs and kisses the corner of his lips. “I like you studying these things. I like hearing you tell me stories. It’s nice.”

“You’re just a big baby. Always have been.”

“Yep. I’m a big baby that loves hearing stories. Tell me one.”

Jaejoong points to a random constellation. “That one’s Orion. ShenXiu. The hunter…”

Park Hyun Suk sighs and rubs his temples as his wife places her long shawl on the servant’s arm. “Has everything been quiet at home, Chin-Ook?”

The servant gives his master a simpering look. “I suppose, Professor. However, you were saying that you wanted to know of anything about your son…”

The professor’s wife looks up sharply, worry etched in her features. “What is it? Has something happened to Yoochun?”

“No, mistress, not exactly… But perhaps it would be easier to show you than tell you.” He carefully folds the shawl and sets it aside, then leads his master and mistress to the nearest data terminal.

Jaejoong tucks a lock of hair behind his ear, settling back contentedly. Yoochun had fallen asleep halfway through the story, and he was beginning to drift off himself. His lips butterfly over Yoochun’s cheek before settling his chin on the younger boy’s shoulder, sighing happily.

Hyun Suk watches the video, eyes dark and fists clenched. “This feed is… live?”

“Yes, sir.”

The man’s mind whirls in a fury of thought, his lower level belief in love above all else warring with his Beta Level elitism and social custom. A sob draws his attention to his wife, and he sees her covering her eyes with her hands, unable to watch.

He decides.

“Chin-Ook. Contact Senator Kim.”

Yeah, I was being kind of evil, there. The original scene was basically uninterrupted, but I decided to draw things out more. *whistles innocently*

The next chapter should be up in the next couple of days, if it makes you feel better. ^^;;;

Oh, it was fast. I posted the first chapter yesterday. XD

I've basically got the entire plot planned out, and a lot of the first few scenes already written, so it's not taking me long to put up the first couple chapters. ^^

(Yes, I am deeply in love with it. ♥)

Most writers would, um, kick my ass if they knew how little time and thought I usually put behind my stories. Basically, I usually go, "Hmm. It's been awhile. I should write something." *opens Word document. Thinks for five seconds. Starts writing*

This one, though, I've been establishing the world and the plot for... a whole five days. >.>

(I love everything JaeChunnie. And I want more. I wish I was good enough with graphics to make my own.)

Well, that's nice to hear. Most of the writers I know would just hate my guts if they knew how little time I take to prepare these things. I even post them the second they're finished without rereading or anything. XD

It's my first AU fic ever, actually. I've written for hundreds of fandoms over the years, under different usernames, but I never write AU. So this is an adventure for all of us. XD
