First, it started out with just a simple lunch with Ryo’s Dominion Restaurant reservation ticket, but then it turned out to be an unplanned ‘date’ with Jinggo who got his ticket from Dee. Well, that’s OK, because he get to be extra alone with Jinggo and eat together just he used when he and Jinggo were back at their home country. He remembered Dee saying that he should stop being such a loser in love and tell Jinggo right to his face that he has a crush on him. He had gathered enough courage to do so, but Ryo and Dee had to blow it up. He couldn’t believe that they would just go and spy on them. What were they thinking? Didn’t Dee trust him to do this? Then there’s this Cloud the cat which they found in the middle of the road and sent them miles and miles into the outback just to return him back to his mistress.
They sure had an interesting event going on here.
But then it wasn’t too interesting as he didn’t get to confess his love to Jinggo. He was right there in front of him and he almost blurted it out, but he didn’t make it. When he thought about it, he suddenly felt like a total doofus. He had loads of chances back at his home country to tell him, and he had loads of private time with him especially when he was in the office with him. Why didn’t he tell him then? And here, he and Jinggo were living under the same roof and pretty much had every single second together. Why did he tell him then?
Joned then realized that the package was on his bed. Jinggo didn’t want it, not after the incident in the restaurant, so he tossed the package to Joned before he went into his room. Ryo did say that they should open when the time is right. Well, Jinggo didn’t want and Joned’s hands were getting itchy. If this wasn’t the right time, when is it? With his nimble hands, he unwrapped the package and saw that there was a pair of matching men’s rings. He looked closely at the engraving on both rings and they read ‘Jinggo’ and ‘Joned’ each. It was obviously a ring you can buy at any accessories store and ask the workers there to carve the names on it.
The other thing that was in the package was a note. Joned took it out and read it:
To Jinggo & Joned,
I suppose that you two have finally gotten together so we thought of giving these rings to you as a sort of congratulation gift. Don’t worry, they’re not expensive. Just some typical accessory shop type of ring. I’ll have to say that Joned has finally got the guts to say it out, huh? Like Dee said, all you have to do is just find the right time and then just say it directly to Jinggo’s face. It’s that simple! That’s how Dee got me to be interested in him now, isn’t it? All you need is love and guts.
We just hope that happiness will be with the both of you and we hope to have more fun working together in the days to come. Remember, you guys are gonna be here for about 2 ½ years, and we promise you we’re gonna make the best of it once you guys get together.
We could even go out on a double-date. Wouldn’t it be nice?
Signed: Ryo & Dee
P.S.: If you had opened this before you guys got together, you better start working on it!
That was when it struck him in the head. All these while he had the golden opportunity to confess but all he did was using that silly admiration act on that unconcerned Jinggo. No wonder he wasn’t going anywhere! Dee was right; he was doing this feeling thing all wrong. How stupid could he get? How lame could he possibly be?
‘Stupid, stupid me!’ Joned hit his head with his comb. ‘I had so much time and so many chances, but I didn’t do anything! Stupid~! That’s it! I won’t be a fool anymore! I’m telling him tonight, right now!’
With that, he slipped the ring with the name ‘Jinggo’ on it and stomped towards the room where Jinggo slept, walking towards the surprised Jinggo with a determined look on his face. Jinggo looked at him, questioned.
“What is it, Joned? Don’t you know how to knock?” Jinggo asked in his usual cold voice.
“I’m through with keeping secrets now!” Joned said with his face flushed. “I’ve been keeping this secret all these years and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t care what you think about this and what you’ll say, because I’m practically immune to your cold, unconcerned attitude, and I don’t care if you’re a straight guy or not! I’m telling and that’s that!”
“Well, don’t let me stop you,” Jinggo said as he put his hands on his hips, looking at him with his usual cool face.
“First of all, I…” Joned hesitated for a moment before taking a deep breath and continued, “Well, what I want to say is…that I, uh…I have…I…”
“If you can’t even think of what to say, you might as well hit the hay, ‘coz I am,” Jinggo said briefly before walking towards his bed. Without warning, before he could even turn to his bed, he was grabbed by the singlet straps by the strong hands of Joned and found his lips in contact with Joned’s. He was so caught off guard that he didn’t have any reaction. He could feel Joned’s tongue fondling with his, tasting every inch inside his mouth like he was kind of delicacy. That kiss lasted for a full 3 minutes before Joned finally opened his eyes and let go.
“I love you,” Joned whispered a little breathlessly. “That’s all I can say right now. I love you more than a partner and more than a friend. I love you.”
Jinggo fell onto his knees as he stared at Joned blankly. Joned looked slightly awkward and was swinging his left leg back and forth with awkwardness. His eyes didn’t dare to meet Jinggo’s, but one thing was for sure—he had finally let go of a truly heavy burden. Before he realized it, he felt Jinggo’s arms around him, hugging him tight. His body was slightly trembling and he could hear him, for the first time, sobbing.
“Jinggo? Jinggo, you OK?” Joned asked.
“So long…I have waited so long for you to say that, Joned,” Jinggo whispered as he hugged his little shorty sweetheart closer. “So long…”
“Jinggo? You don’t mean…?”
Jinggo nodded. “I love you too. I always have. Ever since you came into my agency with that poor, lost look on you, I knew…I’ve found my soul mate.”
“I thought you never cared about me!” Joned exclaimed. “Well, not literally, but you don’t even notice my gestures and my signs showing how much I like you. It’s always that cold, unconcerned face of yours, nothing more. I thought you were never going to notice.”
“I thought you were never going to notice that this cold attitude of mine is showing how much I like you!” Jinggo said tearfully. “You’re always happy and upbeat about me going about like this. I thought you like my cold, cool look! That’s why I’m doing it for you! Isn’t this what you like?”
“Yes, yes, of course I do. Why do you think I fell in love with you for? But sometimes I just hope you’d loosen up a little, you know, give that cold face a break and warm up a bit.” Joned replied, wiping the tears off Jinggo’s cheek. “About like this. Isn’t it better now?”
“Yeah…it does feel better not having to be cold-faced all the time…” Jinggo admitted, sniffing.
“I can make it even warmer if you want…” Joned grinned as he took out the other ring that bore the name ‘Joned’ on it and slipped it into Jinggo’s finger. How Ryo and Dee got their finger size, they had no idea and they didn’t care anyway. Seductively, Joned slipped his hand into Jinggo’s singlet, caressing his broad chest. Jinggo lowered himself to allow Joned to kiss him. As they kissed, they removed each other’s clothes one by one, leaving them in a careless heap on the floor. Both of them were soon naked as they lay on the bed, kissing some more.
Joned reached over to dim the nightlights, making the place almost dark and that they could only see silhouettes of each other. He kissed Jinggo again and Jinggo consented. This time, he was playing the game and Jinggo went along with it. Like Jinggo said to Ryo, for once he wanted Joned in charge. And boy, was he in charge. As he kissed Jinggo, he grabbed his tongue with his lips and sucked it like a lollipop. He bit lightly at Jinggo’s lower lip and sucked that too. He started giving him playful butterfly kisses, from the neck to the throat—licking his Adam’s apple while doing it—to his chest and slowly advancing towards the lower part of his body.
Jinggo felt as if his whole body was beginning to heat up at Joned’s touch and was getting into the ‘mood’. He had never thought that the ever emotional, enthusiastic, loud-mouthing guy like Joned could be so suave and gentle in bed, going slowly over his body, enticing every inch of it. Jinggo let out a moan as he felt Joned sucking his penis. His face felt so hot that he feared that he would steam like a kettle.
“Joned…” Jinggo breathed out his sweetheart’s name as Joned lifted his legs, ready to do the ‘big thing’. He was all sweaty and breathless, getting more and more into the ‘mood’.
“I love you, Jinggo,” Joned whispered into Jinggo’s ear and nibbled on it to distract him while he finally made his ‘entrance’ into his tall, strong yet cold statue.
Jinggo winced. He didn’t think it would hurt. As Joned continued to thrust into him, it dawned to him that it was going to get even painful.
“Joned…Stop…It hurts…” Jinggo whispered, tears welling up again in his eyes.
“It’s alright,” Joned whispered back as he stroke Jinggo’s face. “It’s alright, I’m here…Just relax…I love you…”
Joned continued to thrust, the next one deeper than the first. Jinggo continued to let out moans and groans. It really hurt him, it really did. Tears fell out of his eyes and he could feel Joned’s hands wiping it away occasionally, hushing him and speaking sweet nothings to him gently. As he continued to feel Joned’s thrust getting deeper and more frequent, he felt something warm flowing down his butt. Jinggo guessed that it could be blood; he had never done this before and was pretty much a virgin. He tried to relax just as Joned told him and he was right—it didn’t hurt that much anymore.
In fact, in the midst of the pain, it felt so good.
He reached out his hands to his love and hugged him, letting a moan of pleasure as Joned thrust into him again. He took Joned’s earlobe to his mouth and nibbled. He kissed his neck and breathed down it in ecstasy. He winced once in a while but the pain didn’t bother him anymore. All that matters was that Joned was before him and will be by his side forever more. There’s nothing else he would like than be with Joned till the end of time.
Gently, Joned rolled him over so that he was lying on his stomach. He kissed Jinggo’s bare back and let his tongue run down his spine. Jinggo shivered, enticed by the feeling of his wet tongue on his back. He could feel Joned’s finger tracing every inch of his back and his hands on his waist as he try to raise his lower half of the body.
“What is it…?” Jinggo whispered.
“Go on all fours. Raise your butt up,” Joned whispered back. Jinggo obeyed. This time he was in control. He would like to see what wonders Joned could do.
That was when he felt the thrust in him again. Jinggo let out an ecstatic groan and grasped the pillow case tight. He was thrust again and again and he could his body heating up. He was burning. It was like some kind of heat disease. It was a heat he found pleasurable and happy with. His body has finally been taken possession by Joned Polar, the man he had ever loved. He felt pain, yet he felt joy. It was a complicated feeling; he couldn’t put words into it.
As Joned thrust in deeper, combining them into one, Jinggo’s body continued to burn. He continued to sweat, cry and endure the pain and pleasure inflicted into him, all at once. He was drowning into the sea of passion. He was finally turned from a cold and cool virgin statue into a warm, hot-blooded man.
He was finally his…
“I think things are going pretty well over there, don’t you, Ryo?”
“Dee, you peeping Tom! Get out of the window! They might see you!”
Our Dynamic Duo was at their bedroom and Dee was curious about whether anything good has happened between Jinggo and Joned or not, so he peeked from his window at the bedroom of Jinggo which was facing their side. Judging by the dim nightlight, Dee guessed that things are going well between the Asian recruits.
“Come on,” Dee grinned as he egged Ryo on to join him to watch the house. “Don’t you want to know too? Besides, I think they’re too busy doing their ‘thing’ to realize anyone’s looking.”
“I’m not a pervert like you,” Ryo said as he tugged at Dee’s shirt. “So move away from the window before they see you peeping at them.”
“Alright, alright,” Dee replied as he drew the curtains and lay down beside Ryo. He gave Ryo a seductive look and had his naughty hands up into his pants. Ryo could tell what he wanted. He pouted for a while before closing his eyes and kissing Dee’s lips, succumbing to his fondling hands on his bare body and him removing his clothes one by one.
“I think for the rest of their recruitment, we are certainly going to be in for more fun.”
