A/N: I know the path of this is probably obvious, but oh well. :) Also, the song of the same name (I think) from Phantom of the Opera is great! :D
From Full-Empty-Spirit, thank you! You're awesome!
"Logan, are the masks really necessary?"
"It's a Masquerade Ball, Julian." Logan said, adjusting his own mask on his face. "So yes."
"Do I have to?" Julian asked, making a perfect impression of a five year old.
"Yes." Logan replied. "Come here, I'll help you."
"I'll be back in a minute." Logan said, and leant over to kiss Julian on the cheek before leaving to get drinks.
As soon as Logan had disappeared into the crowd, Julian pulled the ridiculous mask off his face and put it on a nearby table. He couldn't stand the thing and wanted it off his face as soon as possible. He walked away from the offending mask, but not so far away that when Logan came back he wouldn't be able to find him.
Julian waited for a while, watching the people dancing drunkenly and laughing loudly, chatting amongst themselves about trivial matters that you only discussed with people you don't really know. He waited for about ten minutes, and Logan hadn't come back, and his feet were hurting so he moved to a table not far off and sat down, waiting for Logan's return.
A few minutes later, a figure sat in the chair behind him, and started to rub his shoulders. Julian started, not knowing who this would be, or what the hell they were doing. The hands were feeling good though, and his back was all tense and Logan wasn't here…
No, Julian, you don't let some other person practically feel you up.
Julian pulled away, and swore that he could hear a whimper from the other person.
Not two minutes later though, he could feel the other person's hot breath on his ear.
"You took off your mask." They said in a low voice, that he didn't really listen to because he was too busy trying to get rid of the panic in his brain and the thought that he really needed to find Logan.
So he just nodded.
"You looked so great in that mask." The voice said, practically purring.
For Julian, that was enough, so he stood up, turned around and started trying to form strong enough words without completely embarrassing himself. Unfortunately, that didn't work.
"Get away from me, you creep!" Was all he could find in his brain, and it wasn't all that strong.
"That wasn't what you said last night…" The other person replied from the shadows.
"You disgust me!"
And that was when the figure stood up, came into the light and Julian paled, especially when they removed their mask.
"Logan." He breathed, relieved, and embarrassed.
"Yeah, or creep, you choose." Logan said, smiling.
"You attacked me!" Julian replied, a weak argument, but to him it was better than none at all.
"I was giving you a shoulder rub, Julian." Logan replied calmly.
"So?" Julian said, and then added in a quiet voice. "It was pretty much sex."
"Oh really?" Logan said, smirking. "That good am I?"
"Shut up." Julian replied.
Logan continued to smile.
"I knew the masks were a bad idea."
