Chapter 5

Danny awoke to an unfamiliar pressure on his back. After a few moments, it disappeared only to start all over again after a few seconds. He wondered what was going on with his body and reached a hand around to rub whatever was annoying him away.

“Don’t,” came Dougie’s whispered voice from behind him.

Danny craned his head around to try and see his lover. “What are you doing?” he asked.

“Painting,” Dougie replied simply.

“Painting?” Danny repeated. “On me?”

“Yes,” Dougie replied, pressing the brush to his skin once more.


“I’m making you a masterpiece,” a soft kiss was pressed in between Danny’s shoulder blades.

Dougie continued his work and Danny relaxed into the pillows. The constant pressure of the paint brush on his skin was soothing him, but he couldn’t help but wonder why inspired the blond to paint on him instead of a canvas.

Dougie hummed quietly as he worked, occasionally pressing kissed on clean patches of skin across Danny’s back.

“Dougs?” Danny mumbled sleepily a long while later.


“Can I ask why you’re painting on me?”

He was met with silence and Dougie got off the bed. Danny lifted his head, curious to see where his lover had gone. The young blond re-entered their bedroom after a few moments, digital camera in hand. He gently pushed on Danny’s shoulders so he was lying flat on his stomach and took a few pictures of his art work.

“Why?” Danny repeated once the camera had been put down.

Dougie knelt next to the bed, level with Danny’s face. He reached out and brushed his curly hair away from his face.

“Because you were so upset,” Dougie whispered. “Those things that Mrs Peters said yesterday really got to you,” he explained. “I know you want to be strong, for you, for us, but you don’t always have to be.”

“I do,” Danny chocked out.

“No, you don’t,” Dougie said with a smile. “We’re a couple, in a relationship, we can lean on each other for things,” he said. “You don’t have to be Superman.”

Danny closed his eyes and nodded. “I know,” he said. “I love you.”

“Love you too, Danny,” Dougie grinned at him and climbed back on the bed.

Danny didn’t expect to feel Dougie’s tongue on his back, and he jumped at the sensation.

“Dougie?” he wondered. “What are you doing?”

“Chocolate body paint,” was the reply he got from his blond haired lover before he felt his tongue dip into his lower back.

He sighed at the blonde’s touch, a feeling of calm washed over him as Dougie’s lips and tongue trailed across his skin. Danny shivered as Dougie moved across his spine, lingering each time he hit a sensitive spot. Danny closed his eyes as Dougie worked up his body, lapping at the chocolate that was spread across his skin.

“You’re so beautiful,” Dougie whispered in his ear, body draping over Danny’s.

Danny turned his head to look at his lover and Dougie’s lips caught his in a fiery kiss. Danny could taste the chocolate in Dougie’s mouth and he smiled softly. He rolled onto his back and Dougie hovered over him, smiling lightly. He whipped off his shirt and met captured Danny’s lips in another kiss.

Dougie’s lips travelled across Danny’s neck and his tongue flicked out over his Adam’s apple, kissing it softly. Danny sighed and pulled the blond into his arms, and kissed him hotly. Their tongues battled for dominance and Dougie won by thrusting his hips down into Danny, making him moan loudly and forget his sense of being.

The young artist fumbled in the bedside drawers and pulled out the tube of lubricant and a condom. Danny groaned as soon as Dougie had entered him and the blond stilled, letting him get used to the feeling. Danny nodded and Dougie thrust in, making the brunette wince.

“Sorry,” Dougie whispered.

“It’s okay,” Danny replied and brought a hand up to rest on Dougie’s shoulder, stroking his skin.

Danny’s back arched off the bed when Dougie hit his prostate; he let out a moan and pulled Dougie in for a heated kiss. They parted and Dougie trailed kisses across his cheek and down to his neck. He stopped at the junction where neck and shoulder met and nipped at the skin softly, grazing it with his teeth then licking and kissing over it.

Danny took Dougie’s hand in his own and held it above his head as the younger male thrust into him at a steady pace.

“Dougs,” Danny whispered.

Their eyes locked and Danny saw such intensity in the cerulean orbs that he hadn’t seen before. Dougie smiled at him and kissed him softly. Danny kissed him back, locking his legs around the slim waist, pulling them even closer together. His hand travelled down his body to his forgotten member and he started stroking it in time with Dougie’s thrusts.

It didn’t take him long before he was coming with a shuddering gasp, followed closely by Dougie who whispered his name lovingly and kissed his sweaty throat.

They collapsed on the bed together and Danny rested his head on Dougie’s upper chest, the blonde’s fingers automatically threaded themselves in his damp, curly hair.

“I’m all sticky,” Danny mumbled.

Dougie chuckled softly. “Yeah, I know,’ he whispered. “We’ll clean up after.”

Danny manoeuvred himself so they were lying face to face and he captured Dougie’s lips in his own. “I love you,” he whispered.

“Love you too,” his lover replied.

Danny’s eyes fluttered closed and he let sleep overcome him, holding Dougie in his arms.


When Danny awoke next, the sun was shining brightly through the open window. He kept his eyes closed, not wanting to wake up just yet. He rolled over to curl into Dougie and his eyes snapped open when he realised that the blond wasn’t in the bed. His eyes flicked around the room and came to rest on the form of his lover who was sitting in a chair next to the bed, sketch pad and pencil in hand.

“Hi,” Danny said huskily.

Dougie grinned at him. “Hi,” he replied.

“What are you drawing?” Danny wondered.

“You,” Dougie whispered back.

“Can I see?”

Dougie nodded and climbed into the bed next to Danny, handing over the sketch pad. Danny couldn’t take his eyes off the picture. Dougie had drawn him completely naked, as he had been when he was asleep. The sheets were riding down Danny’s thighs in the picture and every single piece of him had been drawn to detail. The way his hair swept across his forehead, the cross that hung from a chain on his neck sat crookedly on his chest right down to his cock, which looked half erect in the picture.

Danny smiled up at Dougie. “You are brilliant,” he said softly.

Dougie flushed a little and kissed Danny softly. “You’re a great subject to draw,” he replied.

“You are the best boyfriend,” Danny breathed against his lips, making Dougie smile again.

“As much as I would love to stay here, you need a shower, you’ve still got chocolate body paint on your back, and Max is coming over in an hour to work on our project,” Dougie said after a while.

Danny pouted slightly. “Shower with me?” he asked.

Dougie shook his head. “I can’t, I’ve got to set up for our project,” he replied.

“But I can’t get to all those hard to reach places on my back that you put the chocolate on,” he said, turning his big eyes on his lover.

Dougie sighed a little. “Okay, you win.”

Danny grinned broadly at him and kissed him briefly on the lips before getting up off the bed. He held out his hand for Dougie to take and they headed to the bathroom together.

Their shower consisted more of lots of kissing and heavy petting more than actual washing and it was only when Dougie thought he heard the doorbell ring that they finished their shower quite hurriedly.

Danny answered the door; hair still wet, and greeted Max with a large smile. “Sorry about that,” he said. “We were in the shower.”

Max raised an eyebrow at him and whatever he was about to say was halted when he saw Dougie descend the stairs, buttoning up his art shirt as he went. He flicked his still wet hair out of his eyes and shot Max a smile.

“We’ll just be upstairs,” he said to Danny, giving him a light kiss on the lips.

Danny nodded and watched them climb the staircase. He headed into the kitchen to get himself something to eat when the doorbell rang again. Feeling only slightly annoyed that his stomach had to wait yet again; he opened the door to find his sister grinning back at him.

“Vic!” he said happily.

His sister smiled at him and walked into the house holding Madeline in a baby carrier. She kissed his cheek in a hello and he closed the door behind her.

“How are you?” he asked.

“Good,” she replied.

“Want a cuppa?” he asked and Vicky nodded, following him into the kitchen.

Danny put the kettle on and set about to make them a cup of tea each. Their conversation started with them remembering the last time Vicky had been here. She smiled fondly at the memory of giving birth to her daughter in his living room. Danny chuckled and said it was certainly an experience that he would never forget.

They made their way to the living room and took a seat on the couch together; catching up in the things they had missed in each other’s lives in the last few weeks. Vicky said she wasn’t struggling as much as she thought she would be with Madeline. Their mum had been helping her out a fair bit, guiding her in the role of parenting, which she was eternally grateful for. Mark was also a gem to her; he would tend to Madeline in the night when Vicky was too exhausted too. She was so glad to have Mark in her life.

Vicky asked how Danny was doing in his classes and how he and Dougie were in general. He told her they were perfect, he couldn’t be more in love with Dougie if he tried. This she gushed at, saying she was so glad that he was happy.

He told her of the Mrs Peters fiasco the previous day and she told him not to worry about her, that the other parents would make up their own minds about whether he was a good enough teacher or not.

Danny nodded, agreeing with her. Dougie and Riley had helped him to realise that the day before. As soon as he brought up Riley, Vicky wanted to meet her as she hadn’t yet. So Danny sent a text to them asking if they would like to come across to his house for a little while.

Not even five minutes later, Natalie and Riley were there, smiles on their faces. Danny introduced his sister to his two female neighbours and Natalie instantly asked if she could hold Madeline who had just awoken. Vicky said she could and carefully passed her daughter to the excited lawyer.

The four adults were soon laughing and chatting and cooing over Madeline who was smiling her toothless smile at them all. The noise must have caught Dougie’s attention as he and Max were soon joining them in the living room.

Dougie seated himself on Danny’s lap and Danny’s arms automatically went around his lover’s smaller waist, linking his fingers together at the front. Dougie leant into his touch and Danny kissed his shoulder.

Natalie said how much she would love to have a baby in the future and Vicky smiled at her, telling her it was something she wouldn’t change now that she had Madeline in her life. Danny smiled at this, remembering that his sister had said she didn’t want to be a mum when she found out she was pregnant. He was glad that she was happy as a mum though, he thought it was good for her.

A few hours passed and Vicky said that she had better be going as she wanted to get home before it got dark. Danny saw his sister off and said headed back inside to where Max and Dougie were laughing over something. Natalie and Riley were rolling their eyes at the pair from their spot on the couch, not wanting to partake in their madness.

Danny asked if they would like to stay for dinner and the three guests all agreed.

“Oh, let’s make it like it used to be,” Dougie suggested. “I’ll call Tom and James and see if they all want to come over, you order pizza!” he shot Danny a massive smile, making him smile back.

He picked up his phone and called the local pizza parlour and ordered six pizzas for the nine of them, hoping it would be enough if he ordered three garlic breads as well.

Tom and Harry were the first to arrive and they couldn’t be happier to have a guys’ night (with two females) like they used to. Matt and James arrived just before the pizzas did and they squished themselves into an arm chair, playfully shoving each other about.

Danny looked at the scene as they ate their food; it was definitely like old times. Just now they had Natalie and Riley as an extra couple and Max as a single.

Dougie reached across and pinched Danny’s slice of garlic bread out of his hand. Danny shot him an incredulous look and Dougie smiled at him as he happily munched on the piece of food. Danny shook his head and picked up another piece, which Dougie also snatched from his hand.

Danny reacted this time, he pounced on his lover, pinning him effectively to the couch. Dougie grinned up at him and pulled him down for a kiss.

“Ugh, garlic breath,” Danny said crinkling his nose as he pulled away.

“Well yours isn’t that great either, mister,” Dougie poked his tongue out at Danny who childishly did the same before capturing Dougie’s lips in his once more.

Completely forgetting they had a houseful of guests, Danny began to sensually grind his hips into Dougie’s, causing the artist to moan a little.

“Ahem,” Riley said, effectively separating them. Both males flushed and apologised. Matt and James were grinning from ear to ear while Harry smirked and Tom shook his head. Max was slightly flushed and Natalie was trying not to laugh.

“Wait until we’re gone next time,” Natalie said with a grin.

Danny mumbled sorry again and Dougie slid so they were pressed tightly together, side by side, his arm going around Danny’s waist.

The rest of their night carried on well into the early hours of the morning, playing silly games and having a good time. They played truth or dare, something they hadn’t done since high school and Danny couldn’t help but love the feeling that they were back in high school, with no worries.

Harry had dared Danny to kiss Riley like he kissed Dougie and Danny cringed inwards at having to kiss a female, but got over it once he realised that Riley was a good kisser. He kept that fact to himself though, putting on the front that he wasn’t happy about it.

Dougie had been asked to recount the details of the last time he and Danny had sex and he blushed furiously as he told them of that afternoon in the shower.

“God, you two are rabbits!” Matt chuckled.

Danny threw a piece of popcorn at him. “Compared to you and James we’re not! Every flipping night you two were at it when we all lived together!”

James flushed at this and Matt chuckled louder. “You’re just jealous,” he smirked.

“How about you don’t argue?” Tom interjected before they could get started in a full swing argument.

“Well, as much as I would love to hear about a bunch of guys’ sex lives, we’re going to leave you to it,” Natalie said, standing up and straightening herself.

“Thanks for coming over,” Danny said as he stood as well.

“Thanks for inviting us, we had a great time,” Riley replied. “We should do this again.”

Danny nodded as they walked to the front door. “We used to do this all the time in high school,” he smiled.

“I wish I was your friend in high school!” Natalie grinned. “We would have had the best time!”

Danny chuckled. “We would,” he agreed.

“Night Danny,” Natalie said and she leant across to kiss Danny softly on the lips.

“Enjoy the rest of your night,” Riley said with a smile before she too gave Danny a quick kiss on the lips.

“Night,” Danny said before closing the door behind them. He headed back into the living room to find Matt and Max having an arm wrestle across his coffee table. He rolled his eyes and took his seat next to Dougie. The blond laced their fingers together and kissed him tenderly.

Matt won the arm wrestle, but barely as Max had him going for a while. Matt jumped up and cheered once he had won and pulled James in for a kiss.

“Easy there, tiger,” James said with a slight grin. “We might get going too,” he added looking at Danny and Dougie. “Thanks for the great night.”

“Anytime,” Danny replied honestly. He got up and walked his two friends to the door, giving each a parting kiss.

He headed back into the living room again just as Dougie was putting Transformers on the DVD player to watch. Dougie settled in Danny’s arms as the movie started playing across the screen. Danny relaxed into the couch, Dougie a comforting pressure in his arms. They all fell asleep before the movie was even half way over.

Because you were so upset,” Dougie whispered. “Those things that Mrs Peters said yesterday really got to you,” he explained. “I know you want to be strong, for you, for us, but you don’t always have to be.”

“I do,” Danny chocked out.

“No, you don’t,” Dougie said with a smile. “We’re a couple, in a relationship, we can lean on each other for things,” he said. “You don’t have to be Superman.”

Danny closed his eyes and nodded. “I know,” he said. “I love you.”

“Love you too, Danny,” Dougie grinned at him and climbed back on the bed.

I love this!

I wanna know what dougie painted on Danny's back too lol.

Dougie's just making sure Danny knows that he is there for him, for them. He doesn't have to be the hero.

Thank you ^_^
