Look After You
The sky was so dark and the rain froze in blonde hair as it fell and no one was there to realize that there were tears mingling with the icy water.
The red-head lay in bed,the only sign of his fear and worry, his despair, were the fingers stroking the cross that was not his but hung around his neck...
Matt sighed in annoyance and stood up, opening the door to his apartment at the insistent knocking, his hip tilting to the side to balance the box he'd been going through when the interruption had come.
Green eyes widened behind his orange goggles as he took in the sight before him and the box slid from his fingers to the floor before he half-tackled the beautiful blonde standing in his door-way.
Mello was back and this time Matt wouldn't let him go. Without waiting for words he crushed their lips together.
Mello threw the plate, Matt ducked, the blonde was angry that he missed and so he swung his fist at the gamer, he didn't bother trying to dodge, Matt knew how that went.
He was crouched beside the red head a moment later, apologizing and hugging him, kissing the bruise that was already forming, carrying Matt to their room to "prove" he still loved the gamer, to make up for hitting him again.
Matt was perfectly still, barely responding to the touches as Mello used his body, he made noise and shifted enough so the blonde thought he felt something but there was no heart in it.
The red-head was empty after so many fights he was ready to just give up, the boy who'd left him behind at Whammy's was gone, Mello was icy, a killer and mafia leader, he was no longer Mail's Mihael.
Matt stayed though, through it all he knew just as well as Mello did, the gamer was the only solace for the blonde, the only thing keeping him marginally sane.
Mello's fingers were gentle as they traced the shape of Matt's face, a soft smile on his lips as he leaned forward to kiss the sleeping red-head. Matt's eyes shot open and the knife he'd started sleeping with jerked up.
Mello's eyes were wide as he looked at the blood pouring from his side onto the sheet, Matt was frozen in horror at what he'd done, it was a solid hit and they both knew the blonde was good as dead if he didn't get help.
Matt, in that moment, realized that despite everything Mello had ever done to him, all the pain he caused and all the trouble they got into together, he needed him just as much as the blonde needed him.
Sweeping up the man he loved in his arms and grabbing his phone he didn't bother changing, one hand dialed while he cradled Mello carefully, glad that they lived close to the nearest fire station where the emt's usually came from.
Hours later found them in a bland hospital room, red and gold mingling, Matt having climbed on the bed beside Mello, swearing to never ever forget he loved him again.
Matt had his arms around his love, the controller in his hands and Mello's head on his shoulder as he played, sunlight just touching them and throwing light of of the circles of metal on their hands.
Mello smiled at Matt, the mostly healed burn half-hidden by his shaggy hair and Matt forgot his game to kiss the blonde who dropped his chocolate in favor of tasting Matt.
Yeah life was hard and sometimes they fought, but Matt refused to break his promise and Mello always calmed down before he really hurt him now. Things weren't prefect but they were as close as they would ever be for the duo.
Matt laughed as he lover impatiently tugging him off the couch, leading him to the motorcycle sitting outside their building, both of them straddling the machine with practiced easy.
Arms covered by striped sleeves encircled Mello's waist and Matt kissed his cheek as the bike roared to life, his words only just audible before the wind snatched them away as they sped away from the city, "I love you Mihael."
