tender flesh above his collarbone. It was his favorite the tiger

raked his ribcage and hips. Tom was going to be one hurting unit by

straight up, slapped against his belly. The slight stinging as wet
skin met wet skin excited him almost as much as the thick cock in his

"Tell me how
much you like this Tommy." Chakotay grunted into his
ear. "Oh spirits Tommy, tell me now!" He thundered as he filled him
with his hot come.
"I love this!
Oh fuck, oh, oh," Tom could feel the older man
convulsing into him and was losing it. "So good, so good, so good."
He chanted mindlessly as his seed began to spurt, defying gravity and
physics over his chest. When unexpected fingers wrapped around his
exploding member, Tom swore he could feel it splatter up under his

"Am, am, am,"

sweat from his face with the pillow, Tom turned his head
to the side to keep from suffocating. His breaths were coming in
hitching gasps as it were. Chakotay pulled his trapped hand out from
underneath his body and rolled off of him.
"Why?" He croaked out once he could speak without choking.
"Why what?" Chakotay responded flatly beside him.
"You, you touched me." Tom stammered. He was still in shock.
"I always touch you."

talking about. Chakotay was a smart man.
"I felt like it." Chakotay said simply and then rose from the bed.
over on to his back and listened as the big man entered
the bathroom. Soon, he heard the small sounds of Chakotay cleaning
He felt like
it he had said like it was no big deal. Chakotay had
just blown his mind and shrugged it off like it was nothing. Tom
shuddered. It was not nothing to him. Not that he knew exactly what
it was but it was definitely something.

freshly washed body gleamed like satin as he walked over to the
dresser and pointed. "Your things are on the left, okay."
acknowledged numbly and sat up on his elbows. He
watched as Chakotay retrieved an unfamiliar pair of gray sweats from
the right side of the bureau and then dressed. When he was done, he
looked at Tom and cocked his head.
"Aren't you going to shower?" He asked.
yeah." Tom got up, padded over to the door of the
bathroom and peered in. He had never been inside the tiny room

and head home. If he had to urinate, he waited until he reached his
own bathroom. Like the gratuitous hand job, using this bathroom was
a little surreal.

said pleasantly making him jump.
It wasn't the
even tone that startled him, their conversations such
as they were, were always fairly civil after sex, it was that he had
not expected Chakotay to still be here. At this point in their
liaisons, he was normally alone. This lingering was unusual.
"Dinner?" That was unusual too.
"Yes, as in food. You are hungry, aren't you?"

proceeded over to a thin closet where he retrieved a set of white

waiting for him beside the sink were a washcloth, a towel and a
dermal regenerator. As Tom fingered the last item, tears welled in
his eyes. He had not been prepared that small kindness from the big
man, especially after the cruel trick he had perpetrated on him
In Tom's mind,
it was undeserved but then so was Chakotay's touching
him during sex. As he stepped into the shower he thought about the
big man in the other room being all domestic. Tom laughed and then
slapped his hand quickly over his mouth before it became a hysterical

got it now and he wasn't sure if it made him happy or
sad. The big guy wasn't being kind. Oh no that wasn't it.
Chakotay was simply keeping his promise and acting like a husband.

had not forgiven the younger man for forcing the
marriage, he had accepted it and had become somewhat resigned.
Chakotay understood that on some level he had brought the situation
upon himself and so like he'd told Tom, he'd better get used to it
Since he had
no desire to make his home a battlefield that meant
trying to keep the peace where possible. Oh he knew they would
fight, it was their nature to but he refused to have it be about the
little things like what to have for dinner. He turned back to the
of his new position as Tom's husband, he accessed
his personal account and asked the computer to replicate the meal the
younger man ordered most often. When it materialized he was
surprised to find that it was something he too could eat and ordered
soup and the sandwiches to the dining table, he sat down
and waited for his husband before eating. Tom appeared before long
wearing an outfit that made him glad he was wearing loose fitting
ratty edged blue jean cut offs to short for public wear
and a worn pale blue tee that stretched tantalizingly across his firm
chest, the younger man approached the table. Chakotay stared slack
jawed at him.
and grilled cheese sandwiches? Great." Tom said with a
boyish smile as he took a seat. He dipped his cheese sandwich in his
soup and bit off the dunked end. "What?" He said with his mouth
full when he finally noticed Chakotay's shocked face.
"What the hell are you wearing?"
and looked down at himself. When he looked back up his
expression was muddled. "Shorts and tee shirt. Why what's wrong

wouldn't be able to relax in his own home with Tom traipsing around
looking totally fuckable all the time.
Tom shrugged, dipped his sandwich again and took

to have a party for us in a couple of days. I was
thinking of letting him do something simple, just the alpha shift
maybe." He slid his spoon to the back of his bowl and tasted his
soup. It was good. He wiped his mouth with his napkin before
speaking again. "Do you think you're up to that?"
"Yeah sure. Why wouldn't I be?"
"Because we'll have to act like we're in love."
Tom put down
his sandwich and stared into his soup as if the red
broth had suddenly done something amazing. His hand absently went to
the neck of his tee and tugged on it. Chakotay could see a large
bruise above his collarbone as the flimsy blue garment was
stretched. He resisted the urge to lean across the table and kiss it.
"I don't think
I know how." The younger man said quietly still
showing great interest in his meal.
"We smile, we kiss, and we hold each other." Chakotay explained.
his gaze slowly. Chakotay was taken aback by the clear
blue intensity of his eyes. "But we do that now. Does that mean we
are in love?"
The frank honesty
of the question floored him. And maybe it was the
tender look of vulnerability on that beautiful face but the answer
all of sudden didn't seem quite as clear as it had this morning while
lying on the hard cold floor of a jail cell. This was a softer,
younger Tom that could be hurt with a misplaced word or an unkind
comment, so he sat staring, say nothing.

flitted to the terminal on the desk and then back to him.
Chakotay watched as his blond lashes blinked and his blue orbs darted
but he still said nothing.

wasn't Neelix. She had the authority to check and see if he was
"Aren't you going to answer her?" Tom asked breaking the spell.
"Oh yes." Chakotay
hit his comm badge instead rising and walking
over to the desk. "I'm here Kathryn, what is it?" He said while
still watching Tom. The younger man had gone to back to soaking up
his soup with sandwich.
"I was wondering
if you had the time tonight to go over a few
reports?" She was offering him a break. It was technically his
wedding night but Kathryn knew that's all it was, a technicality. He
looked the beautiful young man who had asked more questions about
their relationship in the last day than in three years, and thought
yes, he could use a break, if only to come up with a few answers.
"I'll be there
in five Kathryn." He closed the link and stood. Tom
"You're going?" Tom asked with wide eyes.
"Yes, I won't
be long." He wrapped his sandwich in his napkin to
make it neater to travel with. "Why don't you answer some of the
comm messages and let Neelix know about the party while I'm gone."
Tom's pink lips curled in a snarl. "You go play with
the captain and I'll stay home and play husband."
This was a Tom he recognized. A Tom he knew what
to do with.
I won't be late." He said neutrally, proud of his self-
control for not commenting on Tom's crack about being a husband.
Shaking it off, he crossed the room and walked out the door.
As the panels
slid shut behind him, Chakotay was certain he heard the

Tom sat sulking
at the desk staring at the blinking red message light
on the comm unit. He knew he was being irrational but that didn't
make him feel any better. He wanted Chakotay home.
For a moment
there at dinner, he thought they were going to actually
talk like normal human beings. He had asked a question, admittedly a
big one and thought they were going to have a discussion about it.
Are we in love?
When Chakotay didn't automatically spit out `no I
hate you', Tom had been encouraged. He wasn't of course expecting
the big man to say `yes Tommy I love you'. He wasn't that stupid but
he'd been real interested in what Chakotay would have said instead.
Shit, he been waiting on the edge of his chair dying to hear the
answer. Then the captain had called and the asshole had skipped out
on him. Fuck!
Tom glared at the blinking red light. He'd answered
all but one of the congratulations, B'Elanna's being noticeably
absent, with a short audio thank you message. Neelix's he'd left to
last because he thought it would be better to talk to the colourful
Talaxian one on one. Tom put on his happy face and commed him.
Neelix said his name like it was a cheer. Tom smiled
warmly at him, no fake. He always did like the Talaxian.
"It's Tom Chakotay now and that's sort of why I'm calling."
"Ah the party on Saturday. It's a go?"
"Yeah Neelix, it's a go."
The Talaxian actually squealed with delight.
Tom." Neelix eyes clouded over as he went into
planning mode. "Now I was thinking about having in the messhall but
then I thought no, a lot more people could fit into holodeck two.
And the food, well…-"
whoa Neelix!" The Talaxian stopped his rambling and
stared at him through the tiny view screen. "How many people are you
inviting?" Tom asked.
"Everyone of course." Neelix looked at him puzzled.
Well about that," Tom remembered Chakotay had said he
only wanted a small affair with the alpha shift but then again, he
paused, the big man wasn't here to remind him, was he? "That would
be fine Neelix." He said finally. "And if you need help with the
programming, let me know."
Neelix beamed. "I will Tom, thank you."
"No, thank you. Well gotta go, see ya Neelix."
"Good night Tom Chakotay."
Tom ended the
connection and stood. Arching his back, he balled his
fists at the base of his spine, stretched and yawned. It had been a

twenty-four hours he'd been caught fucking Chakotay in a

balls a good scratch, he wandered into the bedroom.
the foot of the big white bed, Tom pulled his tee over
his head and slipped out his shorts. For a moment he thought about
replicating sleep pants, he didn't own a pair but thought the better
of it. Besides finding them too restrictive to sleep in, Chakotay
would only rip them off anyway when he came home.
he crawled over the duvet on his hands and knees and then
slipped beneath it thinking it was kinda weird to be in this bed
alone. Closing his eyes, he figured he'd be tossing and turning all
night trying to get comfortable. He was wrong.
Tom was asleep
