so tonight that i might see, by hafital
Title: so tonight that i might see
Summary: Post Highlander:Endgame melodrama. Some angst. Some sex, you know, the usual.
Characters/Pairing: Duncan MacLeod/Methos
hafital never shies from showing all the hurdles two immortals have to overcome to be together, to accept that they are in it for the long haul, and yet that it might not last, because no one can escape the Game. Her writing is beautifully crafted, too.
It felt awkward at first, both men unsure, hesitant, and they still wore their coats which made it even odder. But soon MacLeod felt the tender way Methos' head rested against his own and he forgot to be awkward.
They swayed gently, not really dancing, just learning the feel of their bodies against each other, their weight shifting from one foot to the other. MacLeod moved his hands from Methos' waist further up and around, feeling the firmness of Methos' back under the soft fabric of his sweater. And they swayed.
"Why does my heart..."
Methos' hands were on his waist, pulling him closer, into the warmth of Methos, and he felt soft lips on the skin of his neck, not kissing, just brushing, breathing. MacLeod inhaled Methos' scent, now laced with beer and just the faintest hint of sweat. And they swayed. His hands traced the indentation of spine and then he reached under the sweater, seeking skin.
"...feel so bad?"
At the touch of skin on skin, Methos froze and then relaxed. He pulled away, enough for MacLeod to look into his face and see softly glinting eyes. MacLeod caressed the warm smooth skin, up and down with his fingers, and felt Methos become hard against him. In response, he hardened as well and his heart skipped and tripped.
