Disclaimer : Sadly, Saiyuki does not belong to me.  I wish it did =)  Just having some fun.  Don't sue me, I don't have any money anyway.

 

Random Notes:  This takes place in the same "universe" as my stories Stay & Aftershock (they are pretty much AUs because I killed off Hakkai mid-journey…yoops).  I didn't think I'd ever return to these because Aftershock had a pretty conclusive epilogue.  So, this takes place after the events of Aftershock but before the Epilogue where everything is more or less tied up in a neat little package.  I imagine this fic will make more sense if you have read Stay & Aftershock.

 

 

It is an unnaturally hot night.  The moonlight that shines over the writhing body beneath him seems far warmer then moonlight has any right to be, but Gojyo won't complain…much.  He likes the way the dim light reflects off of Hakkai's body; the way it shines on the sheen of sweat that covers his lover's skin.

 

The room reeks of sex in the best way possible; that lightly sweaty smell that indicates a fair amount of effort is being put into their current activities.

 

Gojyo can't help but wonder how many people know what's going on in their inn room.  Hakkai is making enough noise for the both of them; and Gojyo isn't exactly being quiet anyways.

 

In an attempt to muffle the noises coming from his own mouth, Gojyo buries his face in the crook of Hakkai's shoulder.  His nose is suddenly filled with Hakkai's aroused scent and it drives him to further pleasure as he begins to lick and bite and kiss the healer's skin.

 

Gojyo can taste the saltiness of Hakkai's sweat and it is a pleasant taste, one that he associates with many things along a similar vein…lust, passion, desire…

 

Loss…

 

Gojyo is suddenly sitting upright in a bed that he assumes is in yet another inn; moonlight shining in through a nearby window.  His face is wet and warm and he mistakes it for a light layer of sweat brought on by his dream.

 

It didn't feel like a dream, but it had to be.  Taking a few deep breaths Gojyo realizes that his mind isn't the only part of his body that is having trouble coping with the idea that what had just transpired was not but fiction.

 

As he lies back down, he wills himself to relax.  Rolling onto his side he reaches out to the warm body that should be lying next to him, but strangely enough, is not.

 

Gojyo's mind fumbles for an answer and it is then that he runs his tongue over his trembling lips.  He can taste salt, but it is not the taste that he loves; the taste of passion, of desire; instead it is the taste of loss.  The wetness is from his tears.

 

Gojyo continues to run his hand over the area of the bed where Hakkai should be, but isn't, hoping to reawaken the warmth that should be there, but is no more; as if these actions will magically bring Hakkai back to him.

 

Closing his eyes, Gojyo prays desperately to whichever god will hear him that he be allowed to fall back into sleep because when he sleeps, he dreams and when he dreams, he can see Hakkai again.
