apparently if you throw plants at him, solekaran falls in love

This might be the most gorgeous square of greenery in the entire city, and it's an especially good day to be in it. The roses in the tea garden have just come into full bloom, and there are a few awkward baby swans making their way across the pond with their more elegant parents. You can't take three steps without running into another tiny miracle.

The trees in the center of the park aren't hundreds of years old, probably, but they look it. They're definitely tall enough. And they happen to have enough low branches that, with considerable effort, you can climb one.

Kidazi decided to make the effort, and is now feeling quite proud of himself even though he's not entirely sure how he's going to get down. The view is amazing, and he has a sandwich. All else can wait.

Apparently he's not the only one enjoying the scenery. A man strolls by along the path - tall, well-dressed, attractive, smiling at the swans. He neglects to look up, and so doesn't see Kidazi there.

Ooh. Cute. Rich, but cute.

He never really learned what to do with cute guys other than harass them, though. So...

He plucks an acorn from the tree, and, taking careful aim, tosses it down.

Permalink

It bounces off his head.

He giggles.

"Did I do something to deserve that?" he asks, looking around, still neglecting the critical direction.

Permalink

Don't make noise, don't make noise--

He stifles a laugh with his hand. Dammit.

Permalink

And he finally looks up. "Aha!" he says, coming over to stand under Kidazi's tree. At least he doesn't seem offended?

Permalink

Well, he's got nothing to lose now, does he?

He pokes his head out from the foliage.

"Shh! If anyone finds out how great it is up here they'll all want to come!"

He scoots a little ways down the branch so he's more visible.

"And if everyone's throwing acorns at hot guys, it's not fun anymore."

Permalink

"How great is it up there? Maybe I should climb up and find out."

Permalink

"But what would the peasants think, sir?"

He grins and beckons as he says it.

Permalink

"Is there somebody around here who cares what people think?"

He climbs the tree, careless of minor damage to his expensive clothes, and stops when he's sitting on a branch next to Kidazi's but a little lower.

"Can't fault the view," he says, not particularly looking at the scenery.

Permalink

"I dunno, maybe he was hiding behind you--"

Oh shit, he's actually coming up! Kidazi is delighted.

He loves compliments, too.

"Well, maybe, but I've got the strategic advantage from up here."

He tosses another acorn lightly in the handsome stranger's direction.

Permalink

He catches it out of the air and tosses it back.

Permalink

He lets it bonk him on the side of the head and whistles.

"Good looks and hand-eye coordination!"

Permalink

"I have many talents."

Permalink

"Uh-huh. Bet I'd like to see some of your other talents."

Permalink

"Would you now."

Permalink

"Maybe."

He leans against a branch that curves out behind him.

"I might make you catch me first, though."

Permalink

"Well that sounds like fun."

Permalink

He is really liking this guy.

"It really is."

He kicks his feet a little.

"I'm Kidazi, by the way."

Permalink

"Sekar. Delighted to meet you. If I need to catch you, does that mean you're going to run away?"

Permalink

"Well, I was thinking about it, but..."

He looks down at the ground.

"I mean, one, it'd be a fucking tragedy if you didn't run after me. Two, I have no idea how to get down."

Permalink

Sekar giggles.

"Do I need to carry you out of this tree?"

Permalink

"I mean, down is a pretty easy direction to go if you don't mind what happens at the bottom..."

Pause.

"...but, I mean, I really wouldn't say no."

Permalink

He reaches up, scoops Kidazi off his branch, slings him over his shoulder, and climbs down out of the tree. His lovely soft green coat suffers a little along the way, but he doesn't seem to mind.

When he's got both feet on the ground again, he shifts Kidazi into a bridal carry and smirks down at him. "Oh look," he says. "I caught you."

Permalink

...holy shit. He's so charmed right now.

"...guess you did, huh."

Getting slung over his shoulder wasn't too bad, either.

Permalink

"Whatever will I do with you now," he wonders, still smirking. "Suggestions?"
