3 Two Times Lucky A Lucky Moon vignette Piper Vaughn

4 Are you sure you want to do this? Nick looked up and gave Luka a cocky grin. I m not worried about the pain, if that s what you re asking. Luka shook his head and stepped closer to the portable table Nick s tattoo artist, José, had set up in their living room a few minutes before. Nick had stripped off his shirt and was in the middle of getting situated while José checked the rest of his supplies. The first Die Hard movie waited in their Blu-Ray player to be turned on once the tattooing got started. Luka would be there to distract Nick for at least part of the time as well, but he was getting more and more nervous about the whole thing. He never wanted this to be something Nick regretted. No. Luka ran his fingers along the edge of the stencil José had applied to the left side of Nick s ribcage. I didn t think you would be. He got to the bottom of Nick s ribs and changed direction, skimming across the flatness of Nick s abdomen to his right hip where the edge of Nick s red and orange dragon tattoo peeked out from the waistband of his steel-colored track pants. Luka had spent a lot of time focused on that tattoo since they d gotten together licking, biting, tracing it with his fingertips. It was his favorite, mostly because of its location. Nick s hipbones were one of his hot spots and he writhed and trembled whenever Luka lingered on them. But the new tattoo, well, it would be one of the few Nick had that actually meant something. That made it different from so many of the others. I just want to know, Luka murmured, drawing his index finger along the curve of the dragon s tail and smiling briefly as Nick squirmed. Are you sure you want to get this tattoo for me? 4 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

5 Nick reached down to still his hand and lace their fingers together. Why? Nick grinned again. You planning on leaving me anytime soon? He said it jokingly, but Luka didn t miss the flash of doubt that flitted across his face. Nick tried to hide it, like he did with everything that could make him seem insecure or vulnerable, but Luka knew that aside from losing his brother, the only thing that truly frightened Nick was the idea of losing Luka himself. Luka leaned down and kissed him, a deep, hard kiss that might have led to something more if José hadn t been sitting in the room. Nick didn t have anything to worry about. Despite their ups and downs, Luka could never walk away from Nick again. The first time had almost killed him. Just the memory of it was enough to make his stomach churn. I m not going anywhere. I just want you to be sure. Nick s hand came up to cradle the back of his head, holding Luka close when Luka would have straightened. I m so sure I can t even tell you how fucking sure I am. You know me. I m not I m not good at all that romantic shit. I can t do rings or a wedding. This tattoo, it s my promise. My forever promise. To you. Luka s eyes burned and he kissed Nick again, softer, his mouth trembling. I love you. Nick kissed him back, long and slow, seemingly oblivious to José s silent presence. It still amazed Luka that Nick didn t care who saw them anymore, didn t mind the general public knowing about their relationship. Nick had come so far, changed so much, since that first day Luka saw him at Glenwood. Yet, he d stayed Nick in every way that truly mattered. When Nick finally let him pull away, Luka was flushed and shaky, his lips tingling. Nick smirked, which made Luka waver between wanting to punch him in frustration or kiss him again. Over and over again. Dammit. Nick knew exactly what those kisses did to him. 5 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

6 Then Nick mouthed love you, and Luka could do nothing more than shake his head and smile back. All ready? José said, drawing their attention. Nick nodded. Hell yeah. Luka turned to face José. Okay, well, I m going to take these two out for a while. They like to be nosy. I don t want them bumping your chair while you work. He glanced down at Steph, his Irish Terrier, and Snowy, the Jack Russell puppy he d bought Nick for his birthday several months before. The dogs had been sniffing curiously at José s bags and the legs of the table, but when they noticed Luka s attention, they both paused to give him doggy grins and wag their tails. Come on, babies. Let s go get some air. He got them leashed, grabbed his wallet from the bedroom so he could pick up a coffee on the way back, said good-bye to Nick, and stepped out into the hallway just as the tattoo gun started buzzing behind him. Luka cringed a little as he pulled the door shut. The sound of the tattoo machine made him think of bees and, subsequently, pain. Luka wasn t a coward, but the idea of needles poking in and out of the thin, tender skin that covered Nick s ribcage sent an unpleasant chill down his spine. Nick had lots of ink and a high tolerance for pain, if the tats and his collection of scars were anything to go by. He claimed getting the tattoos didn t hurt much, but Luka didn t think he would ever be able to work up the courage to get any of his own. He d never particularly wanted one, though, so he supposed it didn t matter. He liked no, loved the ink on Nick. For himself, Luka thought it wouldn t really match his personal sense of style. Still, he was touched and flattered that Nick was getting one to represent him. The significance of the tattoo, the depth of what it meant to Nick, wasn t lost on Luka. This was Nick s commitment to him, his pledge, him honoring Luka in the best way he knew how. 6 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

7 Luka would accept it for the gift that it was, and even though his own pledge would never be etched into his skin, it was engraved in his heart and just as real. He couldn t wait to see how the tattoo turned out. ~*~ Five hours and a few breaks later, Luka got to see the final result. With José s help, Nick had designed a stylized sun that looked somehow both whimsical and wicked all at once. He d told Luka that the sun represented Luka s effect on his life, warming his heart, bringing light where there had been darkness. He d said Luka s smile was like fucking sunshine. Sap that he was, Luka s eyes had watered. But then Nick had given him that familiar grin, full of cockiness and swagger, and added that the wicked aspect of the tattoo was a tribute to Luka s dirty mouth and the fact that he never put up with Nick s shit. So, instead of crying, Luka burst out laughing. Because those words and that smile were so very, very Nick, and they reminded him just how deep in crazy love he was with this funny, stubborn, gorgeous man. This man who at times frustrated Luka to death, and yet still somehow managed to be everything he needed. They ended the day cuddled up on the couch, Nick lying on his right side with his head in Luka s lap, Luka toying with the dark strands of Nick s hair. Luka wondered if the new tattoo was sore. Aside from the occasional wince when José must have hit a particularly sensitive spot, Nick had gone through the entire tattoo process without complaint. Luka thought he d been more affected by watching than Nick had by getting the thing done. Now that it was over, Luka couldn t help but be curious about how it felt. Does it hurt? he asked. 7 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

8 Nick shrugged one shoulder and shook his head a little. Nah, not really. Stings a bit. Kind of like a sunburn, I guess. For me, it s the itching that sucks ass, but that won t start for a couple of days. Well, that made sense. Luka imagined it would suck to have an itch you couldn t scratch without risking damage. When can we have sex? Nick laughed and turned his head to look up at Luka. Now? Luka swatted his shoulder. Seriously. Nick rolled onto his back and grinned. With his hair rumpled and eyes sleepy, he was sexy as hell and tempting as ever. Luka wanted to lean down and kiss him. I am serious. Probably wouldn t be smart to let it rub against the sheets or anything, but it s not like I had surgery. I can fuck you all night if you want. Luka s cock stirred at the words. He would have worried that Nick was joking, but one thing Nick never joked about was sex. Luka licked his lips as desire warmed his skin. Yeah? he asked. His voice was a little breathless, and his cock hardened all the way when Nick s grin widened in response. Nick moved his head so that his cheek rubbed against Luka s erection through the material of his lounge pants. He nuzzled it for a moment, then gave Luka a mischievous look. Tell me what you want. Luka swallowed. He knew Nick liked his dirty talk, and Luka was more than happy to give it to him. I want you to suck my cock. Nick nuzzled again. What else? he asked. The warmth of his breath permeated the thin fabric that covered Luka s straining length. Luka shuddered. Then I want you to sit on it and let me fuck you. 8 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

9 You want me to ride your dick? Nick s fingers inched the waistband of Luka s pants down until the head of his cock was visible. Hell yeah, Luka whispered, his hips jerking when Nick s tongue flicked across his slit. B-but I don t want you to come like that. I want to feel your cock in my throat and swallow you down. Nick sucked briefly at Luka s cockhead and released it with a wet, sloppy smack. He grinned up at Luka, his lips glistening. You wanna taste my cum? Fuck, yes. Luka moaned. Nick sat up abruptly and held out a hand to him. Come on. Feeling dazed, his cock half-exposed, Luka let Nick pull him onto his feet. Nick led him into the bedroom where he paused long enough to yank Luka s shirt off and shove his pants down before pushing him back onto the bed. Luka landed on the mattress horizontally, his legs still hanging over the edge. He leaned back on his elbows so he could watch as Nick tugged his lounge pants the rest of the way off and tossed them aside. He wore nothing underneath. Nick gave him a naughty smile before he bent down and sucked Luka s cock into his mouth. He groaned as Nick pulled him in deep, as the suction and slick heat engulfed his dick and made his thoughts go blank. Nick had come a long way since that first awkward blowjob. Luka had loved it because it was Nick and having that pretty mouth wrapped around his cock was the fulfillment of weeks of fantasies. But Nick had learned quite a few tricks since then, most of them from Luka himself, and so the tables had been turned. More often than not, it was Nick sucking him and driving him absolutely out of his mind. 9 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

10 Y-yeah, he choked out when Nick started toying with his balls, rolling them and squeezing gently. Put your fingers in me. Nick hummed lightly. Mmm-hmm Oh. Luka trembled, his hips slamming up. Damn. Nick didn t stop what he was doing. He kept sucking hard even as he reached over to the bedside with his free hand to rummage through the top drawer for lube. A few seconds later he had the bottle in his grasp. He pulled off Luka s cock long enough to pour some of the slippery gel into his palm; then he slurped Luka down again as his slick fingers prodded behind Luka s balls. One slipped past his rim a second later. Oh, God. Luka shivered and arched his back, pushing down into the touch. He parted his legs farther and hooked an arm around each knee to keep them spread wide. Nick s head was between Luka s thighs, his finger gently rubbing at Luka s prostate, and all Luka could think was that it wasn t enough. It never was with him and Nick. He always wanted more, wanted to be consumed, held down while Nick s thick, gorgeous cock drove inside him. He wanted to claim and be claimed, tie Nick up and leave his marks all over bites, hickeys, scratches. They d done that very thing last week, and Luka had to admit it had been one of their hottest nights ever. He d held onto Nick s wrists, which had been bound at the small of his back with Luka s favorite red tie, and pounded into him until Nick went rigid and came with a muffled scream. Luka followed right behind him, coming harder than he had in his life, and half an hour later, he d been ready for a second round. It was insane how much Nick turned him on, how after months of being together, Nick could still make him feel like they were brand new. Luka hoped it would never change that he d always want Nick as much as he did now, and that Nick would feel the same. 10 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

11 When he thought of the future, he couldn t picture it with anyone else. It was him and Nick and their fur babies and God, Luka loved him so much. So much. Luka released his knees and reached down to tug at Nick s shoulders. Nick pulled off his cock nice and slow, then looked up at Luka with a puffy-lipped grin. He kept his finger moving, rubbing gently at Luka s sweet spot. What is it, babe? Too much? Luka shook his head. Come here. I wanna kiss you. Nick shucked his track pants and boxers and climbed onto the bed, moving up Luka s body until he straddled his hips. He braced a hand on either side of Luka s shoulders and leaned down to bring their lips together. Luka opened instinctively, accepting the warm glide of Nick s tongue as it licked into his mouth. They kissed for a long time, Luka gripping Nick s hips instead of letting his hands wander like normal, Nick s body pressing down onto his. You feel so good, Luka whispered when they parted for breath. Always so fucking good. Nick bit at his lower lip. I ll feel even better if you fuck me. Luka nodded and let go of Nick s hips so he could grab the lube from where Nick had tossed it earlier. He poured some into his palm and slicked up his cock before slipping a couple of fingers between Nick s ass cheeks. He circled them once around Nick s hole, and then pushed in with both, watching Nick s face for discomfort as he did so. Nick s eyelids slid shut and his limbs seemed to go loose. More of his weight pressed onto Luka as Nick went boneless on top of him. Luka didn t mind; in fact, he welcomed the feel of Nick s warm, wiry body draped over his. He fucked Nick with his fingers until Nick was rocking 11 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

12 against him, clearly ready for more. Only then did he withdraw them and lightly smack Nick s hip. Ride me. But remember, don t come. Not til you re in my mouth. Nick nodded and sat up. He was panting as he lifted onto his knees and reached behind himself to hold Luka s cock in place. They rarely did things this way when Nick bottomed he usually preferred to be on the bottom but Luka loved it when they did. Watching as Nick moved on him was unbearably erotic. Nick s long, lean body, the tattoos that shifted and rippled as his muscles flexed, his big, thick cock leaking precum and flushed red with desire. He was gorgeous, and more importantly, he was Luka s, and it made Luka want to eat him right up. Nick sank onto Luka s cock, inch by slow inch. Luka watched, entranced, unable to contain his moan as their bodies finally came together. Nick was tight. His ass gripped Luka s cock, and he was hot God, so hot. Luka wished with all his might that they could stay like this, just like this, forever. But they couldn t, and the urgency was building, the need to move, the need to thrust, the need to come. It had to be soon. It had to be now. Come on, Luka murmured. He groaned as Nick went to work, up and down, nice and deep, his pace steadily increasing. Yeah. That s it. You like that? You like my cock inside you? Nick trembled. His head fell back, the cords in his neck straining. Fuck yeah. Luka moved his hands to grip Nick s hips again, bringing Nick s body down hard as his own hips snapped up. Yes. So good. Make me come, Nicky. Oh, God, make me Luka caught his breath and gritted his teeth as Nick s ass milked his cock. One more thrust and his orgasm broke free, tearing through him and racing through his veins like lightning. He emptied himself into Nick, his hips jolting, eyelids squeezing shut, fingers clutching 12 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

13 convulsively. For a moment, all he could hear was the roar of blood in his ears. Then Nick moaned, long and low. Luka came back to himself and opened his eyes. Nick still sat on his cock, but he was shaking visibly, his face tense. He had his own cock clenched tight in his fist as he fought against his orgasm and tried to save himself like Luka wanted. Luka could see how close he was to the edge. Come here, baby. Let me take care of you. Nick lifted himself until Luka s cock slipped from his ass. He made his way up the bed so he was straddling Luka s chest instead of his hips. Luka didn t waste any time. He opened his mouth and sucked Nick inside, his tongue moving over the head, tasting the bitterness of precum. As he anticipated, it happened quickly. He took Nick deep, all the way to the back of his throat, swallowed once, and then Nick came with a shout that might have been Luka s name, a curse, some ancient prayer. Luka pulled back as warm saltiness filled his mouth, but he didn t go very far. He kept his lips sealed around Nick and drank him down, taking every drop Nick had to give and licking him clean afterward. He didn t know what it was about Nick if it was just the desire, the longing, the need they had for each other but Nick always tasted good to him. Luka loved to have Nick in his mouth, which was lucky for them both, since Nick certainly loved to be there. Damn, Nick panted when Luka released him. That was awesome. Yeah, it was. Luka grinned at him. Shower? Nick nodded and shifted until he was kneeling on the bed. He reached for his left side and cringed a little. Luka sat up quickly. What s the matter? Are you hurt? I told you we shouldn t have sex! Nah, I m fine. It s just the sweat stings a bit. I didn t notice while you were reaming my ass. 13 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky

14 Luka couldn t hold back his smile. Well, just like your cock, your ass is mine. I can do whatever I want to it. Nick laughed. I love it when you talk dirty. I know. Luka grinned. Come on. Let s go shower. ~*~ Thirty minutes later, they were clean and ointment had been reapplied to Nick s new tat. They were in bed once again, this time dressed and tangled up together, not entirely unlike Steph and Snowy had been when Luka checked on them before turning off the lights. He nuzzled his face against Nick s neck. No regrets? he asked. Nick didn t need him to specify. None. Luka lifted his head so he could see Nick s face. The eyes he loved looked almost navy in the near-dark. It may not be in a tattoo, but you know you have my promise too, right? He leaned forward and kissed Nick gently, a soft brushing of lips. Forever. Nick kissed him back and smiled lightly. I know. Luka laid his head in the crook of Nick s shoulder again. He reached down and grabbed Nick s hand, threading their fingers together and resting their joined hands on Nick s chest. Remember that night when you said you felt like the luckiest guy in the world? He felt Nick s nod. Of course. You know I still do. Well, you were wrong. Luka drew Nick s hand to his mouth and brushed a kiss across the knuckles. I m the lucky one. End 14 Piper Vaughn Two Times Lucky
