The sound of Prompto’s teasing voice snapped you out of your reverie. You sputtered, feeling heat rising up to your cheeks.
“I am not.”
“Focus on the task at hand,” Ignis scolded, looking back at where you and Prompto were lagging behind. “The tomb can’t be much further ahead.”
You elbowed Prompto in the ribs for getting you reprimanded, and kept on walking. But your eyes kept wandering back to your boyfriend. You couldn’t help it.
He’d ditched his shirt a while back––it’d gotten wet at the entrance of the hidden cave, so he left it out to dry by the rocks outside. He wandered inside the cave completely shirtless, and you watched as the muscles in his back rippled with every movement he took.
“You’re staring again,” Prompto hissed so that Ignis wouldn’t hear. But this time, Gladio turned to you with a smirk.
“Like what you see, babe?”
You crossed your arms over your chest. “You know I do. You gods-damned tease.”
“Focus,” Ignis warned again from further up ahead. You huffed and kept pushing on.
You could hear the sound of running water from deeper into the cave. You turned a corner and saw a waterfall streaming down. Gladio eyed you with an odd glint in his eyes, and stepped towards the water.
His eyes were on you as he backed into it, letting the cool water run along his sculpted body. You gulped, visibly, your hand subconsciously coming up to your mouth as you bit at your finger. From behind you, Prompto let out an audible sigh.
Gladio had finished his little rinse and then slowly stalked back towards you, his body glistening in the dim light from your flashlight. You let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding as he tugged you against him, your core pressed firmly against his. He leaned down to kiss you, and you could feel his breath fanning across your skin. You could feel his lips grazing yours, when––
“You two,” Ignis’ voice made you jump back. You pressed a hand against Gladio’s chest and pushed him away, like you were teenagers getting caught by a parent. “I really don’t mean to intrude on your private time, but I don’t suppose you could wait until our return to camp? There are more pressing matters at hand at the moment.”
“S-sorry,” you mumbled, hiding your face behind your hair. Gladio muttered something about Ignis being uptight and you moved forward.
You didn’t get very far though, because Gladio briefly pulled your back against his chest and pressed a kiss to your neck.
“We’ll play later,” he growled, his tongue tracing your ear before sucking at your lobe. “And we’ll make Iggy regret making us wait.”
Crowley, you're a demon, please murder this man because it's convenient
All right, since I've worked so hard to convince you and there is clearly no way you will do it ever even if i ask you again since you so clearly refuse, i will do it myself because there's literally No Other Way even though it pains me so much since I'm an angel and not a demon because demons murder but angels don't because we're actually decent now stand back while i dematerialize this random human with my supernatural powers. God Crowley you're so evil.
