Title: The Bodyguard 7/?

summary and pairings
The Paris entourage left the hotel
and Florida within
hours of having arrived. Ken and
Kathryn headed back
to Paris Enterprises, information
in hand to help in
their search. Kathryn was given
a comm signal

Harry, Greg and Chakotay headed
for a retreat deep in
the Appalachian Mountains. Nayib,
brother, and a cousin had a cabin
there. No one knew
about it except members of both
felt secure that they would be safe
there for a while.
As they traveled Chakotay explained
his theory to his
three companions. None of them doubted
that he could be right. They, also,
that someone would go to such great
lengths to get
back at the former Maquis captain,
for something that
happened so many years ago.
Each man went through a
range of emotions from disbelief
to rage and back
Tom was furious at the idea that
his daughter lost
her mother because of the revenge.
Greg was enraged at
the thought of almost losing Harry
to a maniac bent on
retribution. Harry was sympathetic
to Chakotay for the
loss of his child and lover due
to the idea of a life
for a life. Chakotay was just plain
angry for being
held responsible for something he
most likely had no
control over. The only positive
thing he could find
in this whole buzzard situation
was that he and Tom
were working through an old hurt,
The trip took a total of five hours,
Chakotay and Greg wanted to make
sure no one had
followed them. When they arrived
at the cabin,
Chakotay's brother was there to
greet them, then
showed them to rooms to stow their
gear. Each of the
visitors marveled at the sight before
them. The cabin
was nestled in between two snow-covered
grounds surrounding the cabin were
full of wildlife,
seemingly unbothered by the human
intruders. The air
scented with hints of oak and various

"Chak, this place is absolutely wonderful,"
exclaimed! "I don't think I've ever
seen a more
beautiful, peaceful scenery in my
"Thanks, Tom. Although I can't take
credit for the
location, that goes to Nayib and
Charlie. They found
it about thirty years ago," Chakotay
"Well, they did real good, boss,"
Greg said as he
inhaled deeply for the fourth time.
"I could get use
to living somewhere like this."
Harry snorted," I'll come visit you
a couple of times
a year." He wrapped his arms around
lover. "I prefer the hustle and
bustle of city life,
myself. Although, coming here for
vacation would work
Nayib walked up behind the four as
they spoke, "Well,
Mr. Kim, consider yourself invited
anytime you feel
the need of a vacation," he said
with a laugh.
Chakotay turned towards his brother
as he spoke. He
smiled at the elder, seeing his
family always warmed
his heart. It'd been a long time
since he'd seen any
of them. After Rose died, Chakotay
kept himself as cut
off from everyone as they'd allow.
Nayib tolerated it
the least; he'd show up at Chakotay's
unannounced twice a year. Then he'd
call and demand
that his baby brother to come to
the mountains for a
visit. Refusing Nayib when he was
in 'big brother nag'
mode was something Chakotay never
mastered. Times like
this, he was glad he hadn't.
"Nay, everything in order," he asked?
"Yes sir, bodyguard man," Nayib teased.
"You know, if it wasn't for the fact
that you just
met Tom, I'd swear you'd been taking
wise-ass from him for years," Chakotay

Kathryn. She and
Ken are looking into a few things
for me." He then
turned to Tom. "I think you should
"I told Kathryn to give everyone
a week off with pay.
I figured that would tide them over
until you had a
handle on things."
"Hey, does that include me," Harry
"Hell no, you're still working,"
"You know I still haven't figured
out what you do for
him, Harry," Chakotay said.
"Neither have I, boss. In the year
I've been here,
the only thing I've seen him do
is hang out with Tom
and whisper in his ear every now
and then," Greg
"Hey! I work. I'm his technical advisor,"
"Yeah, he tells me if the music is
too loud or not,"
"Well, hell I could've told you that
from one visit
to your studio," Chakotay said.
"It's too damn loud."
The five men laughed.
had been watching the interplay between
his brother and his three friends.
He was surprised at
the easy rapport between the four
of them. He was sure
that while they were all together
on Voyager, there
was some type of working relationship,
different. Then again, after some
of the things that
he heard about their plight, he
there'd be a special bond between
the entire crew.
"Well, I'm sure you're all hungry.
Come inside and
I'll feed you," Nayib interjected
The others turned and followed their

help with the
preparation. The two brothers worked
in silence for a
time, each lost in their own thoughts.

Tom Paris, he means
a lot to you?"
Chakotay looked at his brother with
for the question but for the long
used nickname he
hated. "When are you ever going
to stop calling me
"Never, I know how much it pisses
you off. Now answer
my question," Nayib demanded with
"Yes, Tom means a lot to me," Chakotay
"I see. He replaces Rose in your
Chakotay stood quiet for a moment,
as if he was
thinking about the comparison. "No,
it's the other way
around. Rose replaced Tom."
"Oh." Nayib couldn't think of a possible
that declaration. He was the first
in his family to
see that Chakotay's heart was of
a two-fold spirit.
None of the others denied or confirmed
his thinking he
believed they all figured it out
he's quite handsome. Do you find
peace with him?"
"Hell no. He's hyperactive, annoying
and just plain
irritating," Chakotay said.
"Isn't that being redundant," Nayib
"He is redundant," Chakotay said
"Ut oh, he's talking about you again

Chakotay and Nayib
looked up to find the owner of the
voice and the
object of their discussion standing
"Opps," Nayib laughed.
"You know Chak, I'm going to end
up with a complex if
you kept saying things like that
about me," Tom
"Not possible, you know it's the

obnoxious. But you like me that
way, don't deny it,"

"Yeah, you have us all under your
laughed. "Can I help with anything?"
"No, we're done. Dinner is ready,"
Harry went to get Greg, who he found
outside, once again looking around
in awe. He went up
behind his lover, wrapped his arms
around the big
man's waist and kissed the back
of his neck. "You
really like it here," Harry stated.
Although it was
more of a question.
"Yes. It reminds me of Trebus before
the war," Greg
answered as he turned to face his
Asian beauty. "I
wish you could have seen it in all
its glory. The
planet was wonderful. Most of it
looked exactly like
this, felt just like this: quiet,
serene, and the
smell is identical."
"It'll be like that again someday,"
"If not, we can retired up here."
Greg leaned down
and kissed the waiting mouth. Love
mingled with desire and need was
passed between them
in it. Greg wrapped his arms more

"Do you two think you can knock that
crap off for
about thirty minutes, so we can
all eat," Tom shouted
from the door?
They broke the kiss with a start
and a giggle.
"You're just jealous," Harry called
back as he and
Greg turned and walked to the cabin.
"Damn right I am," Tom sighed.
Dinner was on the table when the
three entered the
kitchen. Conversation was light,
teasing and generally
fun. Nayib regaled them with tales
of Chakotay as a
child, much to the bodyguard's dismay.

air of the
When the meal was done, everyone
helped clean up with
the banter continuing. All too soon,
in some eyes, the
stress of the day and the traveling
caught up with the
four visitors. Greg and Harry were
the first to call
the day done. Saying good night
to the other three,
they made their way to the back
of the cabin and their
room. They went through their nightly
stealing kisses from each other.
After a shared
shower, complete with foreplay,
they tumbled into bed.
Harry crawled on top of Greg and
picked up his
exploration of his lover's body,
he had started in the
shower. Raining kisses over every
inch of skin,
combined with an occasional lick
or nibble. Greg laid
deep in the bed, and enjoyed this
rare show of
aggression. At the end of several
minutes, he's only
thought was to bury himself deep
inside the glory
above him. But his lover had other
ideas he realized

him with his hard member, swollen
and throbbing. Greg
let out a cry of pleasure as he
wrapped his legs
around Harry's waist, and heard
the younger man answer
with a hiss. Slowly, Harry moved
his hips back and

around the golden body above him.

rose together to

and semen, they stroked each other
as their bodies

Harry. Thank you for that," he whispered.

slid off the sated

and grabbed a
towel. He cleaned himself then Greg
off before he
climbed back into the strong arms

They drifted off to sleep to the
sounds of the
mountains around them whispering
Above the sleeping lovers, Chakotay
and Tom went
through their own nightly rituals,
separated by walls
and doors. As much as Tom wanted
to be wrapped in this
arms of his former and hopefully
soon to be lover, he
wouldn't go begging. He believed
that Chakotay would
keep to his promise that nothing
would happen, until
his stalker was caught.
Down the hall, the man playing havoc
thoughts, sat down heavily on his
bed. His desire for
the blond singer was growing quickly.
His heart and
mind in almost constant conflict
watching Tom laugh and joke with
the others, reminded
him of a happier time in both their
lives. As much as
he wanted to say to hell with caution,
believed that he couldn't abandon
Chakotay's thoughts were interrupted
by a knock on his
door. He opened it to find Nayib
standing on the other
"Can I come in?"
"Of course," Chakotay said as he
stepped aside. His
brother walked in and sat on his
bed, making himself
right at home. Chakotay looked at
him with a raised
eyebrow. "Is there something in
particular you wanted
or are you just checking to see
how comfortable the
"Actually, I have a damn good reason
for being here.
Why in hell are you in this room,
when your heart's
desire is down the hall?"
"Nayib, this is none of your concern,"
"Not my concern? My brother has put
his life in
danger for someone he obviously
loves, yet he refuses
to do anything about it. Papa was
right you are
"Nay, you don't understand," Chakotay
sighed and ran
his fingers through his hair. "It's
"What's so complicated about it?
Walk down the hall,
knock on his door and tell him you
love him. Simple."
Chakotay laughed, "If only it was
"It can be. You know Chaos, you always
did make a
mountain out of a molehill," he
"Don't give me any crap about how
you have to keep
your distance. How you will be setting
yourself up for
another heartbreak. That's bullshit
and you know it.
If nothing else my little brother,
you learned a
valuable lesson or should have,
last time. You fought
against your desire for Rose for
far too long and in
the end your time together was short
"No. Our time was cut short because
of Neil Forman's
sick mind, his and now I believe
"No. If you had acted sooner, your
common sense would
have kicked in sooner. You would
have married her
before Forman had the chance to
decide to kill her.
You would have brought her home
to Dorvan V and she
would have been safe from him. He
followed you there."
"Nayib, you can't know that for sure.
That is a
ridiculous scenario to play out,"
"Is it? Fine, if that's what you
want to think.
That's all in the past anyway. The
here and now is
laying in a bed not fifty feet from
you and you're
denying yourself and him the pleasure
of love. Don't
do that Chakotay. How much worse
will you feel if
something does happen and you allowed
this time to
slip by," Nayib reasoned.
Chakotay joined his brother on the
heavily. "I don't know if I can,
nino. I still feel
the loss deeply. I'm not sure if
I can go through that
again," he sighed and ran his hands
over his face.
"Chaos, we all live through and with
pain and loss.
It's a part life. To deny our heart
joy can only make
that pain greater. Don't do that
to yourself. Don't
live in fear of the unknown any
whispered to him. Then he patted
his youngest brother
on the arm and stood. "Go and be
happy, even if it's
for a short time. Listen to your
heart," he said, then
he was gone.
Chakotay sat staring at the closed
door. He knew his
brother was right. Denying his desire
what was meant to be. What if Tom
was taken from him,
would he feel the pain of loss any
less but staying
away now? No, as a matter of fact,
it would probably
be greater. He was almost sure that
no matter what
happened if he lost Tom again, it
would be the end of
his own existence.
Almost as if his body was on autopilot,
it led him
out of his room and down that fifty
feet to stand in
front of the final barrier between
him and true
happiness. His hand lifted of it's
own accord and
knocked. The call was answered almost
if Tom was standing on the other
side just waiting.
Chakotay watched as a long slender
hand reached for
his and brought him into the room.
happening in slow motion, in Chakotay's
eyes. No words
were spoken between them, everything
that needed to be
said was done so with body language.
Tom gently stroked Chakotay's cheek
with the back of
his hand. In one touch all
the pain they had
inflicted upon each other was gone.
Love was all that
remained. Tom brushed his
thumb over his lover's
lips. He promised himself
he would atone for the
wrongs he had done to his love,
