    Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    Spoiler:  

    'It was a beautiful ceremony.'

    That was what his father had said, before disappearing into a crowd and leaving him here alone. That had been hours ago, when the sun was still in the sky and people still lingered around the castle like flies. A beautiful ceremony indeed. It had been like all the rest, excepting for the fact that he was now a part of it. That displeased him to no end, face set into a sour expression.

    His brother had only been dead a week, and yet here he sat in his castle. Among his retainers. Bound to his wife. Matters of state were always conducted so coldly, he supposed, the bitterness in his heart not at all alleviated by even the taste of alcohol on his lips. Kaguya had cried at his brother's funeral. He remembered vividly being moved by her devotion, and he also remembered the disgust he had felt towards those who had spoken ill of her. To feel something for another person was a wonderful thing. Of course, he felt no such attachment to her. Respect, yes. He felt that deep in his heart. The way she had smiled politely with such strength, as she was handed off like an object to her husband's successor...

    She would remain here for the night, and then return to her own palace. He would not keep her here.

    "My brother is dead." Tatsuya sat languidly at the head of what had once been his brother's meeting room, staring hard into the eyes of what had once been one of his brother's samurai. "Your master as well." The sake bottle that rested by his hip had already been drained of more than half of its contents, another cup brought to his lips as he spoke. "The two of them have disappeared forever into the annals of history, as they should. A samurai follows his lord, and his lord is gone. We have both lost, and both gained from this circumstance." His voice was cold, laced with a bitterness that had seeped deep into its timbre as of late.

    "A new lord sits in his place, and a new samurai by his side. By this country's reasoning, we both have cause to celebrate." Tatsuya's cheeks were starting to color from the heat of drunkenness, bringing color to an otherwise pale complexion. A wry smile twisted at his lips, long limbs moving lazily to sit himself upright. "Come and drink with me. We shall celebrate our loss together. Or, if you find no merriment in death, toast me to a happy marriage."

    He felt no desire to celebrate either of those things, in truth, which was why he sat half-drunk in front of the man to whom his life was entrusted. A lord lived and died by the skill and loyalty of their samurai, and yet Tatsuya could not bring himself to put up a respectable face for this stranger. His yukata hung half-open from his shoulders, sloppy movements having loosened his collar to peel back and expose a wide expanse of chest, pale like the rest of him. Had his chest been several sizes larger, curved with a woman's breasts, he would have been the picture of a high calling prostitute. None would risk their lives for a man who looked so delicate, laying half indecent in a castle he had not earned.

    I am not my brother. I will not waste my life in wars.

    This was a promise he had made himself. One that threatened to spill from his lips, should he part them again to take another drink. Would any samurai wish to stay by his side, when no glory was to be had? He did not wish to find out...

    Spoiler:  


    Aside from the occasional greetings or congratulations on his promotion, Takeshi remained silent while he searched the crowds. He'd spent the past half hour under the instruction of the man who'd previously held his job. It was mostly drunken advice about knowing one's place and not stepping outside his role, along with warnings not to be caught flirting with men and women while on duty. Takeshi wondered about that, why he would need to be warned off men. He'd never showed any sign that suggested he was attracted to men and had always been private about what needed to be kept private. Perhaps the older samurai was warning from experience. At the least, he seemed relieved not to have the role any more, even if he was sad about his liege's passing. Takeshi thanked the man and parted quietly.

    The samurai found his new master in the meeting room, sitting at his new post. It was not a pleasant sight and Takeshi was internally disappointed with the state his liege was in. He said nothing though. He brought his hands together in front of him and bowed low before the man he was to serve.

    'We have not been privately introduced, my lord. My name is Takeshi Fujishima. It is an honour to be appointed as your guard,' he said while still bowing. He straightened himself up and came the rest of the way over.

    Takeshi stood beside Tatsuya, taking his place without complaint and waiting in case Yatsuya spoke to him. It was not for him to judge or for him to have any opinion as to how his lord behaved. He quashed any disappointment he felt, any need to redress the man or take him back to his bedroom and reminded himself that this was perhaps the one night his lord could get away with such behaviour. Tonight was about celebration and mourning. Tomorrow was when Tatyusa would be expected to appear more presentable in the eyes of the other lords, samurai and public scrutiny.

    "Takeshi, hm?" Tatsuya didn't seem to put any stock into the idea of introducing themselves to one another, pouring another drink as he listened to him. His name was repeated half in a daze--as if to confirm to the both of them that Tatsuya had heard it--before his new glass was emptied. To introduce himself would be a waste of both of their time, and so Tatsuya didn't bother. Instead he turned his gaze up to where Takeshi stood, a look of displeasure on his face.

    "Sit. You'll ruin the taste of my drink standing there." There was no room for argument in his tone, eyes narrowed at the samurai that stood practically hovering over him. He had invited the man for a drink, not to smother him. More alcohol was poured into an unused cup, lifted between two fingers and held out towards the older male lazily. Despite the alcoholic flush on his cheeks Tatsuya's movements were imbued with a sort of languid gracefulness. Nothing was spilled even as he held the cup over his head, extending it towards Takeshi with an indignant pout.

    "Your lord has poured you a drink. It would be unfathomably rude for you to refuse it."

    To turn down a drink offered to him in such a manner... It wasn't something Takeshi could do in his position, and Tatsuya knew it.

    "Drink with me."

    Re: Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    'Yes, Sir,' Takeshi replied. It seemed his new liege was not one to waste words in introductions.

    Takeshi made no protest as he came to sit by his lord, though internally he did not like the idea of leaving what was surely his post. He was there to protect his lord, not to socialise with him. The samurai shifted his gear so he could better crouched and watched silently as another cup was poured. For a moment he thought Lord Tatsuya was pouring himself two cups until the cup was drunkenly raised into the air. Even with his expression guarded, it took a moment before Takeshi decided to take the cup.

    'Thank you for the drink, my Lord,' he said. He knew he was in no position to refuse such an offer. He ought to be honoured by such an offer, though it was more of a thinly veiled command. Correction, the veil was almost nonexistent. He only took the smallest of sips before resting both hands around the cup and resting it on the table.

    'You will find I am unaccustomed to the effects of alcohol. I will not be able to keep up with you so I must drink slowly,' he said before taking another small sip. He had told only a partial truth, or a truth that held other underlying truths. He was unaccustomed to drinking but he was not altogether new to it either. He could hold his liquour to a certain extent but had no intention of testing his limits while on duty, when the lord he should be protecting drinking more than a fish.

    'As your personal bodyguard, I must be aware of your surroundings at all times. I must not do anything that douses my awareness,' he said in an even tone, looking forward rather than at Lord Tatsuya. He would measure his drinking, only taking enough to be polite so he could keep his wits about him. He was no use to anyone drunk.

    Re: Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    "'Unoccustomed to alcohol,' hm? It sounds as if you've lived a full life." His voice was dripping with sarcasm, lips curled into a mischievous smile. If he truly were as poor a drinker as he seemed, now would be a perfect opportunity to test the waters of this man's limits. It wasn't as if Takeshi was the only man watching over his health at this moment. A guard was posted by the door as well, and even more beyond that. Several guards were posted near to the window as well. A mix of samurai and well-paid ninja kept their stations all around him, which at times struck him as a beautiful sort of irony. In time, they would find his life unworthy of such devotion.

    "Tonight the drinks are on me, so have your fill. Even a lord feels the slightest tinge of lonliness drinking alone. You and I have much to celebrate today, from another's gaze. Tomorrow is another day, but for now I would rather your company than your sword." His gaze was sharp even with the alcohol flowing through his veins, an overly friendly smile tinged with bitterness plastered on his face. He did not drink to celebrate his marriage, nor to mourn his brother. He was neither joyous nor sad, drinking to try and bury the irritation that was swelling inside of him. To be born in this position was more trouble than most would ever realize. It wasn't as if he were starving like many others, but like them he sat on the other side of death, relying on the graces of others to keep its iron grip at bay. Should he be betrayed by the man drinking with him now, his life would be ended in an instant. And for what reason? For the fortune of his family name? He had done nothing to earn their lotalty, nor their hate, and yet he likely had both. There were those out there who would do him harm, although Tatsuya had done nothing to them.

    "Drink. I would have you know me as a man as well as lord. On this, I will not budge. It will only serve to irritate me, should you refuse."

    Takeshi flushed slightly and lowered his eyes without saying anything, at least immediately. His social life was something he liked kept private, so that it would not affect his work. There was a code of standards to follow as a samurai and he to at least look like he followed them, though many samurai had lived without honouring the code of conduct.

    'Drinking is not the only pleasure in this world. A life can be full of pleasures without inebriation,' he said quietly before taking another sip of his drink. He swilled the little cup about before downing the rest of it. 'I hope you are not disappointed to have been appointed a samurai who rarely drinks.'

    'Of course, my lord. Tonight must be the loneliest of nights for you, surrounded by people who only wish to look up upon you. You have my company and my sword,' he replied. He smiled and looked over at his lord with more warmth than he had first done upon entering the room. 'Please, drink as much as you wish and I will ensure you make it back to your bed safely. I will carry you myself if I must.'

    The samurai placed his empty cup on the table and pushed it back as if to say he'd had enough. He would not pour himself any more than was sociable, which was more than he would have liked. If a companion was his lord requested, that was what the samurai would be. As a side thought, he wondered if this what the previous lord had warned against earlier in the night. Takeshi looked to his lord again and thought to himself just how their relationship as lord and personal guard would progress. His duty was to protect this man with his life but to protect meant more than taking a sword for the man. The previous personal guardsman had hinted there was more to the role. He had not quite called it nursing but the picture he implied was more intimate than Takeshi had been trained to expect.

    'You are a man - the man I am sworn to protect. I could not see you as anything else. To do so would be to neglect my duty,' the samurai replied. 'Both of us have been trained for the roles we have been placed in but it will take time to relax and grow into them. Forgive me if I am a little formal.'

    "That is a good expression..." Tatsuya had noticed without fail the rise of color on Takeshi's cheeks, leaning slightly towards him to take in the full view as his eyes were turned down. He did not straighten himself from this position even as the conversation pressed forward, beginning to lose slightly the edge that had surrounded him until this point. Further questions into Takeshi's private life somehow managed to remain unspoken despite his rising level of intoxication, not quite drunk enough to be out of his wits just yet.

    "My loneliness here is immeasurable. I will not have you underestimate it. There is little in this world more miserable than being alone in a crowded place." It was an exaggeration, he knew, but it was one of those things he felt deep in his heart at this moment. Slightly he shifted to draw a bit closer, fabric of his yukata sliding down to just barely hang on his shoulder. To any who might enter the room--of which there would be none, excepting for an emergency--there were none who would know their positions as it were now. Tatsuya looked not too far from a common seductress, leaning towards Takeshi with loose garments.

    "Tomorrow starts a new hell for me. They will expect me to produce an heir, so allow me tonight to enjoy myself." He reached back for his cup to finish off what remained in his glass, eyes meeting Takeshi's as he drank. "Keep me company while I wallow in my misery." Slowly he placed his cup down beside Takeshi's, watching him with an unusually serious expression.

    "Strip. I would see my new guard."

    Re: Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    Takeshi said nothing to the comment. Instead he cleared his throat and looked at his cup. He felt slightly uncomfortable sitting here with a man who was dressed more like a woman seeking pleasure. He did not fail to notice how low and wide Lord Tatsuya's yakuta was falling and kept his eyes averted from the site.

    'You are not entirely alone, my lord. I am here also. I hope, in time, you will feel less alone around me,' he said, not realising how it sounded. He was sure the past lord and guardsman had had at least a comfortable rapport with one another, perhaps more if the samurai's behaviour and instructions were anything to go by.

    The guard's eyes met his lords and he looked over with a slight curiosity to his expression. He could not tell what his lord was thinking, what he saw when he stared through such drunken eyes. Under such gaze, Takeshi felt the urge to tug at the lord's yakuta and make him more presentable. He did not, however, as this was perhaps the only night the lord would get away with such uncouth behaviour.

    'My lord?' Takeshi asked slowly.

    Takeshi wasn't sure he'd heard correctly. Was he being asked to take off his clothes? That surely didn't sound right. He took a few seconds to go over what he'd heard to make sure he'd heard right. He had. He glanced around the room at the other men standing guard then bit his lower lip. Takeshi rose very slowly and straightened himself up before his lord. Already his cheeks were going dark and would no doubt get darker the more he took off. Slowly at first, he began to unbuckle his swords and armour then set them on the bench seat beside him. Piece by piece he stripped himself down to his undergarments - a white shitagi and similarly coloured hakama. He glanced at his lord at this point to get some sort of confirmation that he was doing it correctly before untying his uwa-obi and letting his shitagi slip off his shoulders. The only thing he did not take off was his fundoshi.

    The samurai felt completely exposed without his clothing but at the same time it was rather arousing to be humiliated like this. At first he held one hand covering his chest and the other cupping his fundoshi before he realised how silly he looked. He straightened up, kept his arms by his sides and looked straight ahead.

    Upon first glance, it was easy to see this was a man whose life depended upon their body. He had impressive musculature and had enough scars to show he had fought in battle. There was an arrow piercing several inches below his left armpit; a deep cut to his left shoulder; another slice to his abdomen; a more recent gash to his right hip where the skin was still thin and pink, and several smaller scars up his arms. They would heal in time but for now it seemed he had seen many battles under Tatsuya's brother.

    Re: Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    "I am thankful for your presence," he murmured in response to Takeshi's reassurance, pushing hair back from his face in an awkward movement. He cleared his vision as he held bangs back from his face, arm lazily hanging beside his head as he kept his hair pulled back. He was very obviously drunk by this point, cheeks flushed a consistent hue of red no matter the situation. He had no reason to be embarrassed at this moment--even his current state of dress didn't bother him in the slightest--and so the color of his skin could only be a result of the alcohol.

    He would have repeated his order if he was in a clear enough mind to remember how he'd worded his command precisely. He knew what it was he had asked of the samurai, but not the words he had used in particular. Besides, it hardly seemed necessary. Without too much fuss Takeshi had risen to follow his command, and Tatsuya's eyes followed him with a tired gaze.

    If he'd been in a better state, he would have helped him with this task, but as it was now he could only watch. Not that he minded watching him like this. His hesitation was understandable, but also quite alluring. Tatsuya was in absolutely no rush, and to rush Takeshi felt like a crime of the highest degree. He couldn't stop his eyes from wandering as each article of clothing was removed, an appreciative smile on his face. He was certainly worth seeing in this way, although Tatsuya could not help but laugh at his posture once he was finished undressing. To cover himself in such a useless gesture... They were both men, so there was no need for such a thing.

    "Very nice." Hand dropping from his hair Tatsuya straightened himself slowly, long limbs moving like water. The shuffling of clothes was the only noise as he stood, practically towering over his guard and current drinking companion. There was a good half foot of difference in their size, forcing Tatsuya to look down at him once they were both standing.

    "I see..." Reaching out Tatsuya slid his hand over the scar on the other's shoulder, caressing it with his fingers. The other hand moved to trace the newest of the scars that he could see, touch overwhelmingly gentle so as not to irritate the sensitive skin. "You have seen your fair share of battle..." His voice was soft, free of the slur of alcohol but thick with its influence. Their bodies were close enough that the warmth of his overheated skin could certainly be felt against Takeshi's, the position of his hands seeming almost as if he were holding him in his arms.

    "Would you see me as well?" he asked with a husky voice, sliding just the slightest bit closer to him. Honestly there wasn't much of his body that was still hidden from the other's eyes, but the offer had been officially extended. There was nothing impressive about his own body. No scars. No stories to tell. Nothing worth looking at at all. Even to offer it seemed disrespectful.

    Re: Feudal Irritation (gacktluvr x Rumpleteaser) [18+]

    Takeshi kept his eyes forward and mostly managed to cover the embarrassment of Tatsuya's laugh. The only sign of it was the blush to his cheeks, which was now threatening to travel all the way to his neck. He kept still as his lord moved over and kept his face impressively devoid of any emotions as he was inspected. Tatsuya could have slipped his hand down the samurai's fundoshi and Takeshi would have kept his composure. Hopefully it did not come to that. Takeshi was rather sensitive, despite his training to remain composed at all times. His skin felt every tingle and he could feel his lord's breath upon his forehead.

    One pale hand slipped across the healing scar at Takeshi's hip, causing him to shiver. He tensed up again and stopped himself from biting his lower lip. He had already embarrassed himself by trying to cover his nakedness. To blush and nibble would only make him look weak. He would hate to ruin what respect his lord might have for him by acting like a blushing maiden trembling at his every touch. He was a man, a samurai. He may have felt more comfortable beneath another man than on top of a woman but the number of people who knew that could be counted on one hand.

    'I thank you for the offer, my lord, but respectfully decline,' he replied in an even tone. 'If I may...'

    There honestly wasn't much Takeshi couldn't already see of that pale form. He had held back the urge to cover his lord several times but now it really was getting ridiculous. Takeshi slowly moved his hands up under his lord's arms and tugged at his lord's yakuta. He closed the cloth and tucked it back into his obi before bringing his hands back down by his sides. Standing as they were, their bodies almost touching and their clothes barely hanging about their bodies, was far from respectable. Anyone who saw them would no doubt jump to all sorts of conclusions. Takeshi was acutely aware of the other samurai about the building and felt the humiliation of being stripped before them, even if he had done the stripping.
