Asher smiled at Youta when he called him boyfriend, he picked up Youta's hand and gave him a kiss on the back of it.
"Excuse me?" Asher replied defensively to Minako. "Chiro could run circles around Apophis. Hands are very practical.. meanwhile, a guy who eats and gains abilities? I mean what, did he eat a fruit as a kid and suddenly start photosynthesizing?" Asher says.
"Woah, if you guys are gonna fight, don't let it be over bread. Just split it in half" Asher says to Ejirou and Tatsuya.
Youta flushed at the kiss, before he snorted at Asher. A chiro fanboy wasn’t the worst thing. Actually it was...cute on him.
Ejirou looked torn...but he cut it in half. Tatsuya snickered and scoffed it down. Sending a puppy dog eye at his eldest brother.
Youta sighed. “ fine, but I’m taking your satay skewer.” He informed his brother as they traded.
Youta almost choked on his tea again, as it was true his first manifestation had actually been pretty lame, since he’d manifested randomly wings at the dinner table.
“ but that’s the problem, Chiro has no variety, I bet he’s as vanilla in bed as he is in battle.” A new voice chimed in as a man with black hair walked in.
“...Damien.” Youta sighed , flushing. “ please. Do not discuss such things in front of our siblings.” Youta asked.
Damien looked nearly identical to the villain known for stealing the life forces of those who fell in love with them, who hypnotised men with a single kiss...the defiled villain, vampyr.
"Au contraire, a superpower like Chiro's would most definitely make for a very appealing time in bed," Asher replied to the newcomer (cue the anime anger symbol). Asher turned around to see who had entered, and almost dropped his drink at the sight of an old enemy.
"Wh-" Asher wanted to ask what he was doing here, but instead made a quick change to, "Who are you?"
Youta has said 'our siblings', could he really be related to this guy, this villain? Asher couldn't believe it.
( I like that both youta and Asher have powers that can be used in bed, )
“ ..uhm A-Asher this is my brother, Damien Kaine his power is invulnerability s-so he trains Mina.” Youta mumbles, which wasn’t true, while Vampyr did have invulnerability, his powers were so much more.
“ pleasure to meet you.” He grins, his fangs briefly flashing, threatening him. “ anyway, Apophis I imagine would be much more exciting, with those tentacles? Shame the guys a total bottom.” He said casually,
Youta turned red “ t that! That is hardly! A-appropriate!” He said hiding his face against ashers chest.
( I like to imagine as this goes in Asher slowly meets all of Apophis’ allies and some villains and like he saw just like ‘ f--- sake Youta’ and doesn’t really pick up on the fact that Youta is Apophis until like something super insignificant? Like a fact in his book or something?j
( now I can’t stop thinking about how multiple hands could be used in bed thx Kat.)
"Oh, the pleasure's all mine. You'll have to forgive my surprise though, silly me, you almost looked like this villain I'd heard about. Doesn't make the news much, he's very discreet about his work," Asher said, also smiling to Damien dangerously.
"Ah, I'm sure it's nothing though. What makes you believe that Apophis is a bottom, he's gotta be a switch at most, and then at least.. hm, maybe a power bottom?" Asher said, thinking about the many options. He was surprised when Youta burrowed himself onto Asher's chest, but Asher certainly wasn't complaining.
(I thought that they would just accidentally see each other without the masks on or something, I feel like they'd overlook things like books)
(If it makes you feel any better you countered my hand attack by making me think about tentacles in bed)
( I mean. Technically that was Damien. Damien comes with a warning tag, off I don’t think I just write :p)
Damien grinned as his eyes flashed dark purple conforming he was in fact vampyr. “ well, he must be devilishly handsome.”
Youta actually squeaked as his new boyfriend and his brother talked about his sex love so openly in front of his younger siblings.
“ I wouldn’t be sunrises if Apophis was a virgin.” Minako said.
“ someone like him? No way, guys a major hottie, but nah Apophis is a bottom, just like little youta over there.” Damien snickered,
“....Damien...shut up.” Youta groaned, burrowing his head further into Asher’s shirt,
(I like the idea that Damien threatens Asher , like figuring out he’s Chiro, and it’s like “ well it would be a shame if my brother found out...because then I’d have to hurt him.” Like not telling Asher that his brother is apophis and not telling youta his boyfriend is chiro, because Damien is a dick.j
"Oh, not in the slightest," Asher replied to Damien. That was definitely Vampyr. Why was Youta associating with people like him? Asher was surprised, but no way would he let Youta deal with people like him on his own.
"How can you be so sure that Apophis is a bottom? Wow, I bet you guys talk to each other like old friends," Asher said with a chuckle. And to think that Asher would still defend Apophis, even if Apophis knew Vampyr. Asher couldn't help it, he really truly thinks that Apophis was good.
(Blackmail yesss :0, I eat drama up for breakfast lunch and dinner)
“ look at the time. It’s really late kiddos.” Youta said ordering his younger siblings up to bed. They complained of course but did as they were told.
“ Youta, darling?”Damien called, yours turned to look at him questiongly, and was put under his trance,
“ be a dear, and go wait in your room, until your boyfriend comes up to get you.” He ordered.
The mind controlled youta walked upstairs,
“ now this is interesting. Now chiro, tell me what you think you’re doing with my brother?” Vampyr asked as he sipped a glass of wine.
“ oh come now, of course I recognised the scent of your blood. It’s...intoxicating.” He said taking a deep but unnecessary breath
“ so, what’s your game Chiro? Are you really trying to steal the secrets of this land for the DG? From my poor, defenceless little brother?” Damien asked with a vicious smirk.
“ ...or.” At this thought Damien laughed. “ do you really think you have feelings for him?” Vampyr asked. He loved Youta. They weren’t blood, but that didn’t matter, he loved his family. He protected his family, and he wouldn’t let his younger siblings get hurt.
Youta would never be able to tell if someone genuinely cared for him after all.
"I like my blood to be kept in the confines of my own skin, thanks," Asher said with a sigh, realizing that there was no way he could fake his way out of this. "I didn't even know anything about the 'secrets of this land' until earlier today. I'm not even entirely sure why it's so important to DG..." Asher explained.
When Vampyr asked about Asher's feelings for Youta, he blushed and turned away. "And what if I did have feelings for him? Cared for him, even? You can't stop me from protecting Youta. It's not your place to choose who your brother associates himself with!" Asher said defensively. "I bet I could protect him a hell of a lot better than you can, anyway. What are you gonna do? Tell him who I am?"
“ there’s a lot you don’t know about youta, I just don’t want to have to piece him back together when you shatter his heart. If you really think this is what you want, be prepared to dislike what you find.” Damien said.
“ go. You should probably go to him then.” Damien said standing up.
“ oh...and chiro. If you even consider harming him...I’ll have to spill our blood in front of my poor siblings, so do try to keep that in mind.”
"Oh, trust me, I haven't considered harming Youta or any of his siblings until you came along," Asher said, turning away. He knew the path thanks to the tour from earlier. When Asher reached Youta's room, it was open, so he knocked on the doorframe before walking it.
"Youta?" Asher asks hesitantly. He seemed to be reading a book, though he was kind of out of it. "Youta," Asher said again, closer now.
