Title: Of Servitude
Universe: The Requim of Janus, canon
Description. Alcaeus often wondered if that was Janus' plan all along
Sometimes, Alcaeus felt like Janus’ servant more than his bribed lover.
Alcaeus didn’t know why he had taken over the tasks better suited to the aides creeping stealthily about the temple, but whenever Janus snapped his fingers, Alcaeus was quick to oblige.
He drew baths. Fetched food. Carried messages. Tending to Janus' wounds because the pries was too stubborn to allow anyone else to see his weaknesses. And on numerous occasions, Alcaeus found himself helping Janus dress. To be fair, the clothing that was required of Janus was often heavy, unwieldy, and held together with difficult ties and straps. Janus needed help pulling the fine, silky material over his skin. Across creamy, unmarred shoulders where Alcaeus’ traitorous fingers always seemed to want to linger. Around trim hips that Alcaeus’ hands fought to keep from gripping.
He often wondered if that was Janus’ plan all along. If this was the way that Janus further planned to bind Alcaeus to him. In many ways, Alcaeus didn’t mind the servant-like duties because they were better than the alternative. Better than laying lips on Janus’ flesh, stroking fingers over that pale, pale skin. Watching the High Priest of Sybaris flush with desire, blue eyes darkening with need. Gasping and twitching and writhing as Alcaeus pushed into him, inch by inch, filling him to the brim.
Yeah, definitely better to focus on the menial tasks. Otherwise Alcaeus would find himself caught up in all the things he was trying to escape.
Yes, it's rather short. The next one should be better. It's steamy, hot and pretty much a PWP. And then there should be a longer one in the future. a whole chapter that had to be excised from the manuscript. Sweetness!
I hope you enjoyed!
