“Of course I want you to sleep with me.” Aki placed a hand suggestively on Nao’s thigh.
Aki couldn’t think of anything else that would make him happier than having Nao’s cock rip him in half. Though Aki doubted he could get his up even if he wanted to. Skipping the pain meds to get his libido back was the next thing on his to-do list. The hospital had only given him a two-week supply. So far he hadn’t hurt too much and they’d mostly made him tired. It would still probably take a few days for the narcotics to completely leave his system, but he and Nao could mess around until then.
“We need to be careful.” Nao brushed Aki’s hand away.
Tightness gripped Aki’s chest and clawed at his throat. Nao pushed him away again. After everything Aki had been through, after everything Aki had done for him, it was like nothing had changed between them.
“We couldn’t even kiss yesterday without you becoming breathless,” Nao added.
It sounded so cruel. Why did it have to hurt so much? Aki looked away, but Nao cupped Aki’s face. The gesture lessened the pain, but it still stabbed.
Nao’s eyebrows drew together. “I don’t want you hurt because of something I did ever again. There’s a whole list of things you can’t do.”
“The doctors were being cautious.”
“There’s a gaping hole in your chest.”
“It’s six centimeters. That’s hardly gaping.”
“I don’t want you back in the hospital because of an infection. It can happen to anyone. It happened to me when I didn’t listen to my doctor.”
“And because you weren’t taking your antibiotics.”
“That’s true.” Nao laughed.
“Are you going to kiss me at least?”
Nao leaned over until their lips touched. He was cautious at first as if asking permission. Aki opened his mouth, and Nao’s tongue entered. Aki’s muscles relaxed, and he willed his fears to subside. Nao wasn’t going to bend him against the nearest surface and screw him raw like in Aki’s fantasies, but Nao wasn’t saying it would never happen. All Aki had to do was convince Nao he was fine, and in a few days, they’d be banging like rabbits.
Nao licked at Aki’s bottom lip before pulling away. He pressed their foreheads together.
“Do you understand what I’m trying to say?” Nao asked.
Aki nodded. “You’ll at least help me change my bandages, right?”
“You’ll have to teach me.”
Aki pulled off his undershirt, hiding a grimace of pain in the cloth. He wanted to be alluring. Nao had seen him shirtless plenty of times, but it would be the first so close. Aki glanced over his shoulder suggestively, but Nao was focused on taking the bandages out of the plastic bag.
Aki sighed. Changing his bandages wasn’t sexy, but he’d hoped the undressing part would be.
