    Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    Spoiler:  

    ~
    Gabriel sat in his car, waiting for the car in front of him to finish their transaction so he could get his coffee. He yawned loudly, trying hard not to fall asleep at the wheel. Gabriel's friend Victor ended up dragging him out as a congratulatory party, which then turned into a wild night full of shots and a mediocre one night stand. This is why Eliza worried about him, but he didn't really care. It wasn't like his partying every affected her. He always stayed away from the her when he was going to get wasted, and never brought any men to her home. He only talked to her when he was sober... most times.

    Gabriel will admit that he does get caught in the moment of partying most times though, and last night was a perfect example. He didn't get home until two in the morning, even though he had to get up at five for this new job. It was secretarial work, which was something Gabe was fairly good at. He worked as a secretary at a few different companies, and it was basically the same job with different paperwork. He was great at customer service, and was very organized. It just came naturally to him. Gabriel's childhood best friend actually told Eliza about this job, which then became the two of them conspiring against him to get him it. The job paid an outrageous amount and the benefits were stellar - so there was no argument on Gabriel's part. In fact he was looking for a new job, so he could quit his last one. He worked at a Optometrist Clinic, and it just wasn't for him. He was great at it, but all those children grabbing at the sample frames annoyed him. But it was a job that paid for his apartment, and food for his two cats Night and Socks.

    This job was hopefully child free. From what he gathered from his phone interview, he was going to be working directly with the CEO. He was going to take his calls, collect his clienteles information, schedule his appointments. It was kind of a nerve wrecking thought that he was going to be so high on the corporate ladder - as far as secretaries go. He's been a manager before, but never a CEO's secretary. Was Gabriel even ready for something like this? Guess only time would tell. Besides, the CEO wanted to meet him face to face. They've talked on the phone, but this would be the first actual face-to-face interaction. Gabriel was a little nervous about it. What if he took one look at him, and turned him away? Plus, his name sounded so familiar that it kept gnawing at his brain like a tumor.

    Gabriel shifted his body slightly to check his eyes in the mirror, noticing his heavy bags under his eyes. What a way to make a first impression... Gabriel groaned slightly, anxiety starting to make a fire in his stomach. He picked up his black cold brew, paid for it, took a long drink, and quickly drove away. He had thirty minuets to be at work, which was more than enough time. It was a ten minuet drive to the building, which gave him enough time to park and make his way inside the large office building. Gabriel remembered that the Adam... or Mr. Akagi said to meet him on the very last floor. Gabriel checked his watch on his wrist. He had ten minuets to get up there.

    The building was beautiful. It had marble floors, and even an abstract fountain near the entrance. Natural light just flooded in, which was something that wasn't usual in his history of administration work. Gabriel found the elevators near the entrance, and pressed the button. He waited a short while. He sipped on his coffee, his brain in a mix between how beautiful the building was, and why Adam Akagi sounded so familiar. He hoped it wasn't some stalker that became obsessed with him, or anyone he wronged. Gabriel didn't have the... best track record.

    When he got into the elevator, he pressed the button numbered as "Sixteen." It only stopped a few times, and thankfully no one really made conversation. Sometime during the tenth floor Gabriel finished his ice coffee, and he hoped that there was a trash can where he was going. Gabriel could picture him holding a cup of melted ice, and just the thought made him feel awkward. The elevator door dinged, and Gabriel anxiously stepped into the office. The room had a gorgeous view of the world underneath him. There was only one desk, which was presumably his. There were a few very comfortable looking chairs, as well as three coffee tables with magazines. There was even a shelf of books, and a television. Near his desk there was a huge tank of fishes of all kinds, that looked like swimming rainbows. Right next to the desk, there was a glass door where all that could be seen from the inside were blurry figures. On the door read in large red text ADAM AKAGI - CEO.

    Thankfully there was a trashcan, so Gabriel quickly dropped it. He could feel his heart beating in his stomach, and his legs felt even more shaky with every step. He bit his lip, and knocked on the door. Gabriel looked at the name on the door, his brain still trying to connect the dots of why it looked so familiar. He kept thinking of his name over and over again, as he waited for a reply.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    Spoiler:  


    "You've been eating less lately, sir. You need strength to do your work so please don't make us worry."

    Adam inhaled a deep breath, held it until his chest hurt, before releasing it in a silent sigh. He had been staring out the window, observing the diffusion of sunlight as it passed through puffed, foreboding clouds in the gray sky. It smelled like rain and he wasn't complaining. Nothing could be more annoying than a sunny weather when you're feeling like crap.

    "Sir?"

    "Yes Chris, I'm listening." Adam finally answered, turning his attention towards the middle aged man driving the car at the front. As if knowing that he was being watched, the driver Chris raised his gaze to the rearview mirror so their eyes met. "Tell me Chris, have you ever felt so nervous you could just curl up and die?"

    "Pardon sir?"

    "Never mind." He was wasting his breath. There were not enough words to describe his anxiety anyway. Adam resumed looking out the window when the car pulled up to his parking spot. "Reserved for the CEO," it said. He stared at it as he waitied for Chris to open the door. Since childhood he had learned that things given to him impressed people as these meant wealth and power. People liked money so people flocked to him. But Adam wasn't impressed and he certainly did not think highly of himself just because of his position. It's just work, he would say to himself. It all meant nothing if he wasn't doing it for anyone. And even if he did find someone, he didn't want to think how his special person might just be after his wealth.

    Adam bit his tongue. I might be making a mistake, he thought as he and Chris stepped into the elevator and made their way to the sixteenth floor. Chris started reminding the young CEO to finish his meals properly but Adam only shushed him with a "you nag too much, Chris." When they were both silent, Adam had the opportunity to look at his reflection on the elevator doors. He didn't look it, but he was definitely trying not to puke. He was so nervous today, and it was for a special reason.

    Fate must be toying with him. Here he was trying to live his life peacefully after dealing with a bad heart when he was rejected years ago, when out of nowhere his secretary leaves, the reason being "the work environment is too demanding", and now Adam has to hire a new one. Only one name stood out. Gabriel Grundy.

    "Bring me tea before you leave." Adam instructed to his driver. Of course, it wasn't Chris' job to make his tea but until his new secretary showed up, he only had Chris. "And make hot chocolate. Dark," he added. Damn, he couldn't remember if Gabriel liked any drink other than alcohol. No one could have blamed him, though. All they ever did was have sex and nothing else much. They didn't talk, they didn't date. He didn't know about many things regarding Gabriel, but he adored him very much. He liked the way the back of his head dipped towards his nape. It made him want to cradle Gabriel's pretty head with his hands while nibbling on that translucent skin which Adam loved a lot. But what attracted Adam the most was that when he and Gabriel did it, he felt the most like himself. He wasn't Adam Akagi the young CEO or Adam the trophy son, he was simply himself. Just Adam. And that meant more than anything to him.

    "Sir, the chocolate is ready. Here is your tea and," the driver placed the beverage in front of the young CEO, "there was a knock quite some time ago. Shall I answer it on my way out?"

    He's here.

    Adam's heart pounded in his chest but he stilled it. He was at work. Work. He had to focus or else he'd just be another boy riding the coattails of his father. He nodded to the older man and watched stiffly from his seat as the door was opened. Maybe he craned his neck a bit too excitedly. He couldn't tell, and he couldn't help it anyway. Just work, Adam, he chanted in his head.

    Then there he was. Gabriel.

    The young CEO clenched his teeth. For the past few days he had been bothered, reliving the bittersweet days of him keeping his love for this person close to his heart like a treasured flower, thrilled at the prospect of building a proper relationship together after confessing. But one look at Gabriel sent Adam plunging. Feelings of rejection resurfaced as if a long forgotten thorn went through his chest. The pain reminded him that this person once hurt him so bad he could barely get out of bed for months.

    Should I... return the favor?

    Adam felt a dark shiver down his back at the thought. He wasn't normally a vengeful person, but this was Gabriel he was talking about. He made eye contact with his new secretary and gave a beguiling smile.

    "Good work arriving on time, Gabriel Grundy. I am Adam Akagi." Adam greeted, approaching the other and offering his hand for a hand shake. How silly of him to even think about pulling this person into his arms as soon as they were reunited.

    "Come, I'll show you to your workplace."

    The young CEO released Gabriel's hand casually, refusing to squeeze it with his fingers as he would have wanted. Without waiting for a response, he led the both of them out his office and towards the single desk where a large file cabinet loomed behind. A photocopier stood beside the cabinet and a shelf filled with office supplies was placed to the other side of the cabinet. "The desk is yours. You can use the documents in the cabinet for reference. The kitchen and comfort room is at the back here." Adam now showed the mentioned area which was to the immediate left once a step out the elevator. "The first aid kit and emergency exit are in there as well."

    Adam paused and turned around to face his secretary who he just noticed to be sporting pitiful eyebags on his pretty face. Still so lovely, Adam thought before he could stop himself. Clearing his throat to compose himself, Adam returned the two of them inside his office where he gave Gabriel a mug of the hot chocolate Chris prepared earlier. "Have a seat," Adam said as he himself sat down his own chair, his own mug of tea still waiting for him. "I trust you were already briefed about your duties as my secretary," Adam started, flashing another smile as he watched the other intently. "You'll manage my schedule, prepare the materials for meetings as well as join me for any business done outside the company."

    Adam paused, sipping silently in his tea, his gaze never leaving Gabriel. The young CEO wondered how the other was affected by seeing him again in this setting where he got to call the shots. It felt a little bit satisfying knowing that he was in charge. "Do you have any questions? If not, I'd like you to make a draft for a project I've been considering with the semiconductor company we signed with last month. I'll email you the pointers in a bit." Once more, Adam gave his secretary a knowing smile. Fate may be toying with him but this time he was going to have fun along with it.

    "Good luck, Gabe."

    Hiring Gabriel was no mistake. At all.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    The door opened, and the world around him seemed to move in slow motion. He could feel his stomach clench when he was met by two men - and one of them looked all too familiar. Adam Akagi... of course, how could Gabriel forget? Adam was one of the best fucks Gabriel ever received. They went at it the rabbits, who couldn't quite clench that thirst. But Adam couldn't just leave it as a purely physical relationship, and asked him out. Gabriel wished he could have let Adam down easier, but in that moment it was a turn off. Gabriel remembered laughing at Adam, and if that wasn't enough he rolled his eyes and said, You're just a good fuck. I don't want anything else from you. Gabriel left directly after that, deleted his contact information, and decided to leave it at that. Gabriel partied a lot harder back in college, and that entire year was quite a blur. Adam's name eventually became an itch on Gabriel's tongue he couldn't quite get out. Gabriel actually though that Adam's named was Daniel these last few years, and avoided any friend requests by that name out of fear that it would bite him in the ass - and oh man did it.

    Gabriel looked at Adam dumbfounded for a split second, but turned his head. He didn't want to alert Adam that he remembered him, or that he even forgot his name in the first place. Gabriel walked two steps into the office, not really knowing if it was safe to sit down. Maybe Adam forgot who Gabriel was? Maybe someone found a way to top his rejection. Gabriel knew that Adam wasn't a dumb man though - Adam was a CEO after all! But why would Adam hire Gabriel if he knew who he was?

    Gabriel met his handshake, and gave him a charming smile - even though he was secretly panicking. "It's nice to finally meet you face to face." Gabriel said, hoping to all forces of the universe that Adam didn't remember who he was. Adam then led him to his desk, his eyes grazing the work space. He was already trying to figure out a way to organize it the way that suited him, but Adam being here was a little distracting.

    Gabriel trailed after Adam, trying to keep out of his line of sight. He quietly yawned behind him, trying to hide it the best he could. Gabriel was much more alert after learning who Adam Akagi was, but exhaustion couldn't just go away - though Gabriel wished it could. When Adam turned to face him, Gabriel immediately straightened his posture and looked up at Adam. He met his eyes, and somehow he just kind of knew he noticed his bags. After Dam cleared his throat and led them back to his office, Gabriel couldn't help but touch under his eyes feeling a little self conscious.

    Gabriel sat down, and looked down at the already prepared hot chocolate. He loved hot chocolate. A small smile escaped his lips at the sight of the hot chocolate, before he took a tiny sip. It was perfect. Gabriel's light blue eyes shot up to Adam as he spoke, and he quickly sat the mug down. "Yes. I actually printed out a copy of the tasks, and I've been studying it." Just because Gabriel was well versed in secretarial work, he always wanted to come prepared. Plus, he knew he was working for a CEO, and wanted to impress him.

    "I don't have any questions, but thank you. If I do, I'll ask you immediately." Gabriel gave Adam an awkward smile, which fell when he saw Adam's. His heart started to race when he called him by his nickname. Gabriel could feel his cheeks heat up, so looked down. "Th-Thank you, sir... Um... I'm going to... get situated." Gabriel said as he rose from his chair, accidentally spilling some hot chocolate on the seat. Gabriel looked at the scene with wide eyes, and he looked towards the door. "I'm so sorry, let me get some paper towels. I'm so sorry."

    Gabriel rushed to the bathroom, and grabbed as many paper towels as he could. His heart was beating against his chest like a war drum. "Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck," Gabriel quietly said to himself as he rushed back to the office. "I swear I'm usually much more careful." Gabriel said as he wiped down the desk. Thankfully the hot chocolate managed to spill more towards the edge, so it mainly got on the carpet. "I don't know what came over me. Maybe first day jitters?" Gabriel laughed nervously, refusing to look Adam directly in the eye.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    In the short time that Adam faced Gabriel, the young CEO noticed how the other had a tendency to look away when he was flustered or nervous. It was endearing to say the least, arousing at most. Gabriel's frantic movements were amusing to follow but now Adam was facing a dilemma. Should he help him clean up the hot chocolate or...

    "It's alright to be nervous, but I hope you're not too scared of me." Adam chuckled, making his way towards Gabriel and taking some of the paper towels crushed inside his secretary's hand. Maybe he was teasing and using his position as employer, but Adam was already in Gabriel's personal space before he knew it. "And don't do that to your work papers. I might punish you." He said that, but the young CEO was already questioning himself if maybe he was being too flirty because damn, it was hard not to with Gabriel.

    But he hurt you.

    Adam started. The voice in his head was not taking any chances. He could not go through that again. Staying locked in his room, not going to his lectures, fighting with his father, making his mum cry. He was fine for some time when he found someone who sounded like Gabriel during fucks but Adam could not keep it going for long. Drinking, even trying out substances that took him no higher than the sex he had with Gabriel. None worked. He felt empty and starved. His head was heavy and a mess. His mum cried more, and her strained voice woke Adam up, but his heart remained attached and longing for this person in front of him. Sometimes, Adam wondered if he was cursed, like the original Adam from the bible. Curious and attracted to a fruit that he mustn't touch.

    He looked at Gabriel and searched for genuinety in his light blue eyes. They were beautiful, subtle and clear and bright. Once upon a time, he truly believed he wanted a future with this person. Gabriel himself was an adventure Adam was willing to make. "Copper sulfate." Adam muttered under his breath. It was only after some seconds of further staring that the young CEO realized that he said that out loud and that he was being a creep for standing so close to Gabriel.

    In a second Adam had pulled away and was loosening his necktie while he had his back turned to the other in the room. He felt hot and unsteady. His feelings which once ruined him were threatening to hurt him again. "You can leave the rest of it to the cleaning lady. Go get yourself settled, Gabriel." The young CEO's tone was firm and dismissive. He was making sure that Gabriel understood the message. He wanted to be alone. Swallowing hard, Adam brought himself to face Gabriel once again, the expression on his features cold with reserved bitterness. "I look forward to your work."

    Caution pulled him back, but attraction was difficult to resist. It was only a matter of time until it became clear which mattered more to him.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    When Adam started walking towards him Gabriel stopped cleaning for a second, but quickly started cleaning again. Being scared wasn't his exact feelings... it was complicated. Adam had everything in the palm of his hands; he could fire him at will, give him an insane work schedule, and god knows what else. If Adam wanted to, he could ruin his life. Gabriel could always quit, but he was trying to be better and commit to something - even if the thought scared every fiber of his being. When Adam grabbed the crushed up paper towels, Gabriel let him take it. He looked up at the CEO, being so close to him bringing all sorts of memories. Adam always smelled nice and that didn't change - Gabriel liked men who smelled nice. But Adam was almost too close.

    Gabriel could feel his face heat up at the flirtatious comment. He had to take a moment for it to truly process in his brain. Any doubt that Adam didn't remember Gabriel went out the window, and he was in full panic mode. Maybe he really should quit? No. He promised Eliza he would at least try... But then again... If this was a game to Adam, he could always play back? If Adam would bark, maybe he should bite? A little office flirting now and then would probably keep him busy. And if Adam ended up bending him over his desk, then fate just willed it to happen! No... that was a terrible idea. Gabriel was surprisingly never fired, and he didn't want that streak to end.

    Gabriel met with Adam's eyes. Truth be told he was a little intimidated to pull away. It didn't help that Adam was his type, which is why he was his longest running fuck buddy. He wasn't bad to look at. In fact, he was one of the most attractive people Gabriel has ever laid eyes on. Why Adam was so infatuated with Gabriel was beyond him. The copper sulfate comment made Gabriel's raise an eyebrow. He wasn't too sure if he heard it correctly, and he wasn't bout to ask him.

    When Adam pulled away, Gabriel rubbed the back of his neck while his back was turned. He looked at Adam, "Are you sure I really don't mind..." Gabriel stopped himself and took a deep breath, "I'll call her." There was usually a list of extensions, and if there wasn't Gabriel would gather them and make the list himself when he had free time. When Adam faced Gabriel he stood straight and tried to look alert. The bitter expression didn't go unnoticed, and it made him a little uncomfortable. Gabriel always heard that romantic rejection was the worst, but he didn't really know that first hand - Gabriel always did the heartbreaking. "Thank you sir. I look forward to working with you." Gabriel said with a small smile, before he walked out of the room and shut the door.

    Gabriel felt like he could finally breathe. He took a deep breath, trying to stop his panicked heart. Maybe the iced coffee was a bad idea. But in retrospect, he didn't expect his boss to be an old fuck buddy he rejected in the worst possible way. Gabriel made his way to his desk and searched all the file cabinets until he found a laminated sheet with a ton of numbers and extensions on it. He couldn't help but wonder how up to date they all were. He called housekeeping and told them about the mess, before he hung up his phone. He grabbed a small notepad he had in his back pocket, and searched for his work login and email. He received it in an email the day before he started his job here, which was helpful. Most places it took a few days to get that set up.

    After Gabriel got everything set up, he waited for the email with his first project. He couldn't believe where Adam ended up. Gabriel vaguely remembered Adam being rich, but he found it more annoying than anything. All these people flocked him because of his riches, and Gabriel initially started hanging out with him because he was attractive. Money meant nothing to Gabriel. It was never something he had, nor cared about. Gabriel was content with his life. He had an apartment that was perfect for him and his cats, and a few nice things. Gabriel would never want to be rich, though sometimes it wouldn't hurt.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    It's all in your head.

    Adam chanted to himself like a mantra. He was being so unreasonable, treating Gabriel like a sinner for breaking his heart. He really should stop thinking of making him suffer or just hurting him back. That would be just childish.

    "What do you think I should do, Anise?"

    The young CEO spoke as he referred to the succulent sitting on corner of his table. It had been a gift from his mum, when she approached him one day when he was in the midst of coping with Gabriel's rejection. Adam remembered shouting at her and slapping the potted plant away, making his mum drop it. There was a harsh silence between them, and Adam begrudgingly picked up the shards while his mum stiffened from his outburst. But then Adam, inn his angry and unsteady state, cut his own finger. His mum cried then and said, "oh Adam dear, you're hurt." Just the simple fact of a person acknowledging his pain brought Adam back to his senses.

    That day, Adam realized something about himself. He wanted to be seen, to be looked at in the eye and be seen as himself. It meant everything to him, because Adam grew up under his father's strict training and unrelenting expectations. Gabriel's rejection felt very similar to his father's rejection to Adam his whole life, and the familiarity of it coming from the person he liked significantly upped the impact.

    Adam sighed, reaching out to touch the smooth stem of the succulent. Anise reminded him that he should not allow circumstances to hurt him that way again, to guard his heart and never forget. "I should be kind to him, don't you think so Anise? Being a bad guy does not suit me, although I'm not sure if I can be a kind kind of boss." Adam felt a smile tug on the corners of his lips. It seemed like he found his answer and the confusion he felt earlier because of his reunion with Gabriel dissipated. "Be kind, but not so much as to get hurt again." He concluded.

    Feeling inspired, Adam strode towards his office door and exited. He made his way towards his secretary's desk and tapped the surface once to get Gabriel's attention. "Let's have dinner later to celebrate you joining the company. It will be like a welcome party. You can also introduce yourself to people in the other departments." The young CEO felt himself smile genuinely at the other for the first time in a long time, and he even went so far as to bend over and lean close to the other. "What do you say, Gabe?"

    Adam eagerly waited for Gabriel's reply, but not a moment later his phone rang and Adam was forced to turn away from his secretary. "Akagi." He stated, eyebrows knitting. Judging from the person calling, he had a feeling something was about to happen. It was from the delegate he sent to secure a contract with a mining group.

    <Sir Akagi, sir, we have an issue. The director from the group promises to look over the agreement provided that you meet him in person.>

    "Oh?" Adam's expression was turning sour. He did not send his delegate to fail. "Why is that?"

    <Sir, he wants you to, uh, meet his daughter.>

    Not again. Adam glanced at Gabriel before turning away and clenching his jaw tight. "I trust that you did everything in your power to convince him before the situation came to this?"

    <Yes, sir. Of course.>

    Adam held back a sigh. He did not want to look defeated in front of his new secretary. "Alright. I'll be right there by evening. Tell the director I'm inviting him and his daughter to dinner."

    <Copy, sir.>

    Once the call was ended, Adam faced Gabriel again. "I'm sorry, we'll have to postpone your welcome party another time." Without thinking, Adam placed his hand on Gabriel's shoulder and squeezed it, as if his hand unconsciously needed to touch the other. Dealing with introductions to unmarried daughters has always been draining, and having Gabriel with him this time was going to be less stressful. Hopefully.

    "Book a hotel suite and plane tickets, then go home and pack your things. I'll pick you up at your place by lunch. We're going to Bali, Indonesia."

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    Gabriel found a few documents that looked a little sloppy for his taste, that he decided to rework. He was going to talk to Adam about it to get them finalized, but he felt as if the layout could be better. Who ever worked here before Gabriel was an amateur at best. Gabriel was in the middle of fixing the layout of an appointment sheet, when Adam tapped on his desk. Gabriel quickly looked up at Adam, his stomach feeling that tight feeling again. "Hi Adam... er... sir." Gabriel said a little awkwardly. Maybe he should quit? He really felt like crawling in a hole somewhere and dying.

    The dinner caught Gabriel a little off guard. He really didn't know what to say. Gabriel was never one to turn down a free meal, but then again he really didn't want to be in the same room as Adam if he could avoid it. Adam should hate him! Gabriel was a little surprised that he even got the job, if he was being honest. Gabriel never experienced heart break in a romantic sense, but he's been told that it stings. Gabriel went to turn down Adam's offer, but was cut off when he heard the sound of the cell phone. He watched Adam turn his back, and being the nosy person Gabriel is he tried to listen in.

    Adam seemed a little stressed. He hoped that dinner plans were already being canceled... and by the sounds of it, he was right. When Adam said the word 'daughter,' it immediately caught his attention. What kind of business meeting had family members attend? Gabriel tried to look like he was working on his tiny project when Adam turned back to him, before he looked up when he started to talk.

    There was a spark of relief when he said he had to postpone their dinner plans. He looked over at his shoulder, and offered Adam a smile. "It's okay. Honestly." Adam said, not really sure if he should be patting his hand or something. Adam looked... a little stressed. Gabriel was never good at dealing with other peoples emotions.

    When Adam mentioned Bali, Gabriel's eyes went wide and a tiny smile crossed his lips. He was a little shocked. "I'm nsorry... Indonesia?" Gabriel asked, not too sure if he heard him correctly. Gabriel never had the chance to travel outside the country, so he was admittedly a little excited. He would have to dig out his passport. He knew the passport would serve a use one day!

    "I need to find a cat sitter..." Gabriel said, rubbing the back of his neck. "How long will we be gone?" Gabriel asked, his eyes flashing up towards Adam's. He was probably going to get his friend Jet to watch them. Jet was really the only one he trusted to watch his beloved cats.

    Gabriel hoped they would be gone long enough to wonder around just a little. This was going to be all too new to Gabriel. Not only was going to another country new, but he has never even been on an airplane. The only downside was Adam... he hoped he didn't want to talk about their past... relations, but he also knew that it was bound to happen one day.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    When Gabriel appeared disbelieving about the trip, Adam's first thought was cute. For once the other displayed innocence and it made him so much more endearing in Adam's opinion.

    "A cat sitter? You have a cat, Gabe?" Adam observed. He did not recall his secretary mentioning any animal friends in the past. He did not mention a lot of things, in fact. "I'd say we'll be away for four days. It'll take some time to court an old man, you know. I'll have to take it slow." Adam said, sending a quick wink at the other. He could or could not be talking about the director. Either way, good business was always done sure and steady in the Akagi way.

    Gabriel was concealing his excitement well, but Adam nevertheless whiffed it from him. Soon, the excitement was rubbing on him. His mind kept running with places to take Gabriel to, things to show him. He tried to shut the thoughts out as he made his way back to his office to gather his personal things and call Chris. It was silly, but Adam wanted to take Gabriel out on a date.

    Don't. The voice in his head warned.

    "Fine." He conceded, answering the voice under his breath. He greeted goodbye to Anise then left the room just as Chris reached the sixteenth floor.

    "I'll be leaving first. I'll meet you at your place by lunch." Adam regarded his secretary. "We'll head to the airport together."

    The drive to his house was a noisy kind of silence. Adam sat still, but his mind was reeling. He was still so young and already his business partners were subtly pushing marriage candidates towards him in their passive aggressive manner. Really, in this day and age. Adam had to roll his eyes just the slightest. If a person worked diligently and with discipline, resources would be utilized efficiently and appropriately, then profit would be a given. It was ridiculous to rely on favors and marriage to secure an agreement. Adam knew that he did not only need to have that contract signed, he also had to educate his business partner, regardless of his age.

    Bottom line, he simply did not have the time to fool around the lovely island of Bali with an equally lovely Gabriel. But I want to. I want to show him around, Adam admitted, his face scrunching further and messing up his handsome features. He was still frowning by the time he reached home and was walking around his room, picking out clothes at random. Soon enough, his mum popped her head at the door and called out to him.

    "Adam dear, you did not greet me when you got home. I'm sad." His mum, a petite woman named Iris, entered the young CEO's room with a slight skip in her step. She had always been light footed like that. "Oh, another trip?"

    "Yes, mum. Four days." Adam paused what he was doing and turned around to face her. "Some geezer's trying to set me up with his youngling again, mum. That's so old fashioned. Why can't people just work hard properly instead of using shortcuts?" He huffed, the scowl on his face turning from upset to dissatisfaction that his mother could only chuckle.

    "Dear, come over here for a moment." Iris said good naturedly, but her son was in no mood to hang around.

    "Mum, I have a flight just right after lunch-"

    Without a word, she strode towards him, removed and replaced some of the clothing that Adam was packing, then added a pair of socks and his toothbrush. She did all these in only a few seconds"There, all ready. Now come with me."

    Adam took one look at the contents of his duffel bag and knew that his mum had finished his packing for him. Part of him disliked the feeling that he was babied, while the rest of him beamed at this subtle display of care and affection. She could have just been meddling, but the gesture made him love her more nevertheless. He let her lead him to the garden patio where he was sat down in one of the wooden chairs. She left him for a while and when she came back, she had two teapots and two teacups on top of a tray which she was carrying. Adam quickly stood and helped her bring the tea to the table.

    "Thank you, Adam." She smiled, her movements light and crisp as she poured her son tea from one of the teapots. Adam did the same before sipping the tea. He tasted black jasmine and sighed. He loved jasmine with black tea. He looked at his mum in the eye and thought how wonderful of a person she was. He'd been so busy hating his house because of his father that he sometimes forgot that his mum was still here with her gentleness.

    "What's in the other one?" Adam asked, referring to the other teapot. "More tea?" The young CEO thought he was joking, but Iris only gave a cryptic smile that said "why don't you go and see for yourself?" So Adam downed the rest of his tea and reached for the other teapot. The liquid poured out was the same golden color. Adam gave raised an eyebrow at his mum's consistent smiling as he raised the cup to his lips.

    "Ack!" Adam nearly sputtered. "Mum, this tea is cold." And it wasn't even iced tea, just brewed tea. "How could you do that to black jasmine?" Adam was borderline offended.

    Iris only giggled, patting a napkin on the corner of her son's lips. "You know, Adam, people are similar. The same, jasmine scented black tea. It's just that some are more heated and driven, more passionate than others." Her hazel eyes met Adam's, her gaze tender and patient. "But lukewarm tea can still be salvaged. If we pour part of the hot, the cup will eventually become drinkable." As she spoke, she poured hot tea to fill Adam's half full cup. "Dear, you can share your fire with others, just remember to be patient." Her fingers found his cheek as she leaned to plant a kiss on his forehead. "Be careful on your trip, Adam."

    I got lectured with tea. Adam could never seem to get used to his mum's creative method to teach him things.

    Just then the two of them heard the sound of a car being driven up the driveway and soon enough the driver Chris stood by the doorway, keeping his distance from the two others as he was not invited. "Join me for tea, Chris, while Adam gets his bag." Iris invited just as Adam was heading towards his room to get his things. He changed into a business casual outfit, which meant a turtleneck sweater underneath a suit jacket, trousers and loafers. Needless to say, his mum coordinated and laid out the clothes earlier. When he went back out, Chris and Iris were out front. His mum gave him a kiss, on the cheek this time. His driver tucked bag at the back and they were off to Gabriel's place.

    Chris was a skilled driver and he did his job very well. It did not take him long to drive to Gabriel's place despite the new secretary's very recent employment. By mere observation, the area appeared clean and decent, a good neighborhood. Adam decided to knock on Gabriel's door himself. Maybe he'll be surprised. Should I have brought flowers...? Adam considered.

    Okay, that thought was just silly.

    Adam kept the self reproach comments to himself as he made his way to the address which Gabriel gave on his r?sum?. Seventh floor, room two. Windows facing the west. That meant the place probably had good view of the sunset, given the height. Adam vaguely wondered if he'll ever see the sun set from inside Gabriel's room.

    Stop that, Adam. He scolded himself for the last time before knocking on the door.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    When Adam asked if he had a cat, Gabriel nodded. He could feel himself blush a little at the little nickname. It was so informal, but Adam called him that all through their college days, so he didn't know why he thought it was so weird now. Maybe it was because Adam was the Adam Akagi - his boss and CEO of a major company. Back then Adam was just the insanely attractive man who had a glorious cock. It did make Gabriel happy that he still called him Gabe though. He was happy that his position didn't make him a pompous douche. He was still just Adam Akagi... though there was no sleeping with him this time, even though Gabriel would jump at the opportunity to do so.

    Gabriel started to save whatever he was doing, and tried to think of everything he could bring to the trip. He made a mental note to grab his laptop when he got home. He could log onto everything on that. Gabriel grabbed his phone a quickly texted Jet. Hey Jet. I'm going away for a business meeting to Indonesia for a few days. Can you watch Night and Socks for me? I'll make it well worth your time.

    Jet was a sex buddy, but to be fair most of Gabriel friends were people he's slept with. They met at a bar, and after a night of nonstop sex they decided they would most certainly do this again. Jet ended up becoming one of Gabriel's friends, and is one of the few people Gabriel would trust with his life.

    Gabriel's phone buzzed on his desk, so Gabriel quickly grabbed it. Only if you use that pretty mouth of yours before you go. Gabriel couldn't help but roll his eyes at Jet's reply.

    Of course. Maybe if we have time we can do a little more. Gabriel texted back. Just as he hit send, Adam walked out of his office and told him he would pick him up by lunch. "See you then. Drive safe." Gabriel said as Adam left the office. Before Gabriel went home as well, he bought their plane tickets to Indonesia. He couldn't believe that he was going somewhere so exotic. As he left the office, Gabriel texted Jet that he was on his way. They probably didn't have much time, and Gabriel still had to pack.

    When Gabriel got home, Jet wasn't there yet. He took this opportunity to pack a few business casual outfits, and other essential things such as a toothbrush and his razor. His cats kept crawling into his black suitcase, which slowed him down a little. "I'm sorry, babies. I would love to take the two of you, but I can't." Gabriel said as he used both of his hands to pet his cats, and placed a kiss on both of their faces. The last thing Gabriel put in his suitcase was his laptop and charger, before he zipped it up.

    Suddenly he felt arms wrap around him, and teeth bite down onto his neck. Gabriel gasped, but leaned into it as Jet's hands wandered around his body. "I don't have much time..." Gabriel breathed out as Jet threw him onto the bed. Gabriel grabbed Jet's shirt, and pulled him down with him. Gabriel probably wasn't going to have sex when he was in Indonesia, so he was desperate for some before he left. The two made out as they undressed each other. Jet broke away, and kissed Gabriel's neck leaving a bright red hickey. Gabriel hoped Adam wouldn't notice, but it was far from the thing he was focused on at the moment.

    Gabriel flipped Jet on his back, and kissed a trail down towards his member. Gabriel opened his mouth, and was just about to give the other head before he heard a knock on his door. "Fuck." Gabriel said, jumping off of Jet. "One moment!" Gabriel called out. "Get dressed. My boss is here." Gabriel whispered, throwing Jet's shirt at him. Gabriel quickly grabbed a beige knitted crew neck vest and a white button up, and threw them on. Thankfully he still had his pants on, so he just buttoned them back up. He took a deep breath, thankful that he was fully erect.

    He grabbed his passport, wallet, and his suitcase. "Thank you Jet. I'll make this up to you, I promise." Gabriel said, before rushing out of his door.

    "Sorry for the wait. My cats were slowing me down." Gabriel lied. "I bought our tickets, so we should be okay to go... our flight leaves in about an hour." Gabriel was still a little frazzled. He wanted to have sex so bad, and now he would have to wait a few days. The only action he got today was a kiss on his neck. Suddenly he was reminded of his hickey... he didn't get to see how dark it was. He hoped that Jet didn't make it too obvious, but the man was the king of hickey making.

    Re: Something More Than Just Physical (The Orphan & BunBunTheCatSnake)

    As Gabriel was out the door and immediately expressing his apologies, Adam's eyes unconsciously gravitated to his secretary's mouth. They're such a cute cherry pink, he loftily noted. And they were a bit wet, too.

    Adam, no staring. Geez.

    "No need to be sorry since you aren't late." Adam said as he led the way to the elevator and punched the ground floor button. "Did you get a sitter in time? I hope it wasn't too short a notice. You'll have to get used to sudden trips like this. As much as I prefer my emissaries to do well, sometimes they make blunders, leaving me to clean up after them."

    Adam had his head tilted towards Gabriel's direction, hoping it was the casual amount of tilt. Gabriel mustn't know how the young CEO was admiring the way that cute little vest fitted Gabriel so well. Adam could not believe his luck, reuniting with Gabriel like this and going on a trip with him on the same day. Just as Adam was weighing whether he should consider today a coincidence or some kind of fate, the elevator bell dinged and the doors opened. Chris the driver stood waiting with the car door open. Adam turned to his secretary.

    "Are you hungry, Gabe? Because I know I am. I haven't eaten anything the whole day. Though we'll have to keep lunch short since we'll have less than an hour before boarding. After you." Adam quickly added, letting Gabriel sit first.
