Give me your rentboys, your whores, your not quite monogamous masses yearning to. Well. You know.

Location: A room. Of some sort.
Time: Not important, but probably late afternoon to early evening.

Seth Cuthbert, a small, slight boy with short Holocaust survivor hair stepped into the room. He stared at each of the gray walls, then sat down on a couch that seemed to be one of the main decorative features. After a moment, he was confronted by the entrance of another boy, an equally small, pretty sort of a boy in a top hat and a cravat. They were men's clothes, although the boy looked hardly older than sixteen. Seth blinked. "Hello," he said.

"Hello," said the pretty boy. "I'm the Saint. Who are you?"

"I'm Seth Cuthbert," said Seth, slightly puzzled. "You're a saint?"

"No. The Saint. It is different," the Saint informed him laboriously, and sat down next to him on the couch, a good deal closer than Seth would have liked. "And now," he added. "We wait."

"We wait for what?" asked Seth somewhat nervously. There was something fundamentally indecent about the Saint.

The Saint shrugged. "For the people to come. I expect they will. I," he added, with a flourish of one hand, "am a magnet. For people. Pretty people especially."

"I think you give yourself too much credit," said Seth

"You're here, aren't you?" pointed out the Saint.

Seth looked blank, then settled down to pout for a bit.

The Saint waited patiently, toying a bit with his top hat brim.

"No, no, don't worry, don't - don't. Oh, Christ. Excuse me." Seth swallowed hard, pulling away as far back as possible without being rude. "I'm really, really sorry about. You know." He said, looking down. "It's nothing you've done."

"Do you need to stop, for a while?" Terence asked, eyes big and puppyish. "I know it's stupid to say, but I used to be with someone who, you know, same thing, and. Well. I know it doesn't make you, like, the same, but sometimes, you know, he needed to, uh, stop. For a while. I can stop. If you need me to." He sat back and fiddled with his fingernails.

"The same?" Seth looked up. "Oh. So you're kind of used to it." He laughed, once, sounding more like a choke. "I wondered why you didn't freak out. I really did. No, it's all right, just..." He trailed off, and brushed Terence's cheek with one hand. "Just go slow, all right? As a. A favor, I guess."

"Of course," he said, leaning slightly into the touch. "Really slow. Okay. Right." He kissed Seth on the lips, quickly and chastely, and fidgeted.

Seth kissed back, almost laughing with relief. "Thanks," he said, rather suddenly, "for being so nice. I guess. I mean, the other guy -" Seth gave a real full blown laugh now, hoping he didn't seem rude. "He's not nice."

Jun. 8th, 2007 10:24 am (UTC)
Terence looked quite puzzled. "Why are you with him, then, if he isn't nice? It's none of my business, actually, forget I asked." He curled a hand around the back of Seth's neck and kissed him again, as nicely as possible.

"I don't know," Seth mumbled, not having been paying attention to the last bit of Terence's speec. "Because he's just sort of there, I guess. Which is nice. Can be nice. Not exactly nice. I'm sorry, I have no idea what I am trying to say." He was beginning to breathe rather oddly, in short heated puffs.

"Are you quite all right?" Terence asked, smoothing a hand across Seth's brow in a discordantly maternal gesture.

Seth sighed. "For the record, Terence, I am not usually the sort of person who is emotional all over other people's clean linoleum. You've just been very kind. Maybe I shouldn't -" He broke off, very well aware that he was embarrassing himself.

"It's all right," Terence murmured. "You can be whatever. What is it you shouldn't do?" he asked, putting a tentative arm around the boy's shoulder and pulling him close, rather as though he were a frightened and injured animal with big, cute eyes.

"Um. Bother you?" Seth laughed and shook his head. "Look, you didn't...approach me, or whatever, because you wanted some scrawny mental case to spill his issues out onto you. I'm sorry about this, maybe I've misled you."

Jun. 11th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
"I pretty much got what I approached you for," Terence said. "And it's not like I'm going to abandon you here, wherever here is, just because I did, you know? I mean, you're a sweet kid, and if something's wrong, just tell me. It's fine. I like you," he reiterated, and pulled Seth a bit closer. "I'm not some giant whore who only cares about fucking. I care about people, too, you know?"

Jun. 11th, 2007 10:22 pm (UTC)
"Um. Thanks. And I didn't, you know, mean to imply that you were only interested or only cared about sex. If you were with a. A guy like me before. Then you'd have to, right?" Seth laughed weakly. He slumped against Terence, giving the other boy all of his weight. (Although, all things considered, all of Seth's weight wasn't much.) "It's just this," he said into the bare skin of Terence's shoulder, "just this. I guess I've known this guy for a long time - we dance the salsa together, for competitions, or we used to, before um. You know. But spent most of my time staring at him." He laughed again, teeth clashing accidentally against Terence. "Sorry. Um. And just recently we started um I don't know what to call it fucking probably," he finished, in a rush of words and lack of punctuation.

Exhibiting for once remarkable tact, Terence held back all of his questions throughout the course of his monologue, moving in fact only with an involuntary shiver when Seth's teeth grazed his skin. When the boy had finished speaking, he urged, "Go on," in what he thought was his most soothing tone.

"Um, he hits me," Seth paused. "Don't freak out, okay. Don't freak out. Um. He hits me because he knows I," he stopped himself, rather tactfully he thought, from saying "deserve it." "He knows it gets me off," he finished finally, a rare blush heating his cheeks. "So it's okay. But not. You know?"

Terence took a deep breath. "I'm not freaking out. I'm not freaking out." He pulled Seth closer, gently. "That's not okay, it's really not, and oh." He stared at an indeterminate point out across the room over the top of Seth's bristly head.

"I thought it might not be," Seth muttered, and swallowed. "You're the first person I've told," he admitted, comforted by the softness of Terence's touch. "Although my English teacher guessed."
simonia
Jun. 13th, 2007 09:31 pm (UTC)
"English teachers, they're like that," Terence said, abstracted. "Jesus. You know that's not all right, right? You know you don't deserve that - you know it's nothing you did." Terence said these things as they came to mind, his internal monologue racing.
simplysidhe
Jun. 13th, 2007 10:50 pm (UTC)
"No, I guess not, but well." Seth shrugged and blinked against Terence's skin. "How do you know I don't deserve it? You've only known me a few minues, albeit very nearly in the biblical sense."

Jun. 13th, 2007 11:16 pm (UTC)
"Because no one does," Terence said with simple conviction. "Why?" he asked. "Does he tell you you do?"

Jun. 14th, 2007 01:43 am (UTC)
"Not in so many words. He's just generally controlling, I guess." Seth twitched. "Um. Would you kiss me, please?"
simonia
Jun. 14th, 2007 02:16 am (UTC)
"I," Terence said, "don't think that's the --" but promptly lost all convictions on the matter anyway and kissed Seth soft and slow and sweet, trying not to convey the pity he felt.

"Mmm," said Seth. "That is. I. Mmm." Seth could be feline, and he was so now, nuzzling into Terence like a small animal. "I think I know what you mean," he added, his voice thick with comfort, "Moses calls me a Charles Manson cat. It's a metaphor for something."
simonia
Jun. 14th, 2007 02:36 am (UTC)
"Don't understand what for," Terence said, stroking Seth's bristly hair. "Do you know, though, when you do that, I think you're going to start purring?" He laughed, slightly. Remembering what exactly had prompted the boy to seek physical comfort, he sobered. "You really don't deserve it, Seth, you know that. Really, you don't."

Jun. 14th, 2007 02:55 am (UTC)
"A metaphor," said Seth, feeling very blank and stupid. "Charles Manson - you know, the cult guy - would demonstrate his power by throwing a cat around a room. Hitting it and stuff. For a while it would yowl, but after a bit it would just stop. The fear would go out of it. It is," he repeated, shutting his eyes under Terence's touch, "a metaphor."
