Notes: Agron has brought some “wild dogs” into the fold of the rebellion; when his motives are questioned, a certain other wild dog leaps to his defence. Takes place before and concurrently with the events of ep 7, “Sacramentum”. Sequel to my fic, “Across a Crowded Temple”. See deviation description after fic a link to the previous fic, and for acknowledgements.
Nasir didn’t want to say goodbye, so he didn’t. He didn’t tell Agron to return to him, either — anything even remotely suggesting that there might not be a reunion between them felt like it would be tempting the Fates’ crueler sides. But just in case, he had taken the ghost of Chadara’s advice, making the most of every moment in the two-week wait before Agron’s mission to Neapolis, not taking a single second for granted. If the Fates proved unkind, he would have no regrets.
Well, save for that his wound had, by both Agron’s insistence and that of the Medicus, prohibited anything more intimate than a kiss or a caress; the Medicus had only just released him from sleeping under her watch! But that wound had reunited another pair of lovers, and Nasir would not regret that. He only hoped that the Fates would bear that in mind ….
So he hugged his beloved, and kissed him, trailing fingers and eyes across Agron’s skin and committing everything about the man to memory.
It seemed Agron was trying to do the same.
“I will miss scent of you nearly as much as feel and sight,” Agron complained, burying his nose in the crook of Nasir’s neck and breathing deeply.
“And I, yours,” Nasir agreed, breathing in as well.
“I have notion!” Agron suddenly announced, pulling away. Nasir lamented the absence for all of half a second, until Agron then ordered, “Take off vest.”
Nasir obeyed, half afraid that his heart was about to burst as he did so. Were they going to throw caution to the wind, and risk the ire of the Medicus? Nasir did feel better ….
