Just One Night [M]


Charis
 Share

Recommended Posts

Charis naturally came with him, while he led her to his bed, her hands around his arm, as if she needed to be close to him and touching him. Alexius briefly remembered that she was much younger than he and not half as experienced in pleasure as he was. Age usually didn’t really matter to Alexius – if he wanted someone and they wanted him, and they weren’t young enough for it to be weird (as young as his son, that would be weird)… he didn’t see why two such people shouldn’t share pleasure, if that’s what they wanted. So he didn't consider it much and in this case, it was soon forgotten again too.

Alexius sat down and Charis stood in front of him with a smile on her lips that made him curious. What did she have in mind? But he didn’t know. Women were a mystery and some even remained that after he slept with them. Charis was a huge mystery! She seemed to think it over, while touching him and Alexius waited, leaning into her touch and smiling when she touched his strong arms. He tilted his head when she began speaking, but then she chose not to anyway. Instead she acted, and he liked that. When it came to sex and pleasure, showing was often much better – and easier - than telling! Soon he was on his back and she was above him. Alexius reached out to touch her, running his hands down over the sides of her body and returning her kiss. Then came her orders.

 “Very well… my Queen… as you command.” Alexius said with a grin and returned her kiss again. This time he pulled her closer against her body, feeling her breasts against his chest and her body against his. It felt so good and so perfect! Alexius was plenty turned on already, but she had ordered him to not rush it, so he wouldn't. While she was there, he skillfully removed her strophium to unleash her lovely breasts. Then he rolled them over, so she’d be on her back instead and took a few moments to adjust, so she could rest against the cushions at one end of the bed. Alexius sat for a moment between her legs, looking at her, “I know I told you already, but you do look amazing!” He then said and ran his hands down over the front side of her body, taking his time to caress her breasts and then his hands met her subligar and tugged at it. “This needs to go… if I’m to worship you properly, I must do it to all of you, now.” Since she was already on her back, he’d need a hand or two with getting it off properly, unless she wanted it torn, of course…

He agreed! She didn't know why she was surprised, he'd already shown himself head and shoulders above her dominus but she was still surprised, pleasantly so. She leant down and let herself be enveloped in his kiss - passion spilling out of every pore as she wound her arms around his neck. She made a noise against his lips as he rolled them over. Memories of being held down, no matter how brief, flooded back and she fought to keep them at bay. She broke the kiss with panted breaths and wide eyes as she tried to settle her nerves. She was safe, she was with Alexius - a man who seemed determined that she would enjoy every second of his company. 

She managed a throaty laugh as he tugged at her subligaculum and arched a brow, feeling her nerves settle and pleasure wash in again. She hated how Tertius was so in her head and resolved to try and push him out as much as she could this evening. Reclined against the pillows, she arched her hips to assist him in pulling it down until she was left utterly naked. She was not a naturally very self-conscious woman, such things were frivolous when faced with the genuine trials and tribulations she'd faced in her life but now, with Alexius, she felt suddenly wary. As if he might refuse her, not like what he saw. It was ridiculous really but such were her thoughts. 

She shuffled down the bed a little until she was close to his face as one hand gently moved down his chest. She'd touch him of course, but not yet. For now, selfishly, she wanted the attention all on her.

Being asked to treat a woman like a queen and worship her and give her all the pleasure he could… well was there anything better to do, than just those things? Women were there to be worshipped, they made him feel so amazing and so satisfied and so fascinated and he just couldn’t help it. And it didn’t matter that they were mysteries, all of them. They were still gorgeous and right now, there were no one else but Charis in his world, that he wanted to worship. They kissed again and soon he had them both positioned right on the bed, so she could relax and get comfortable and he could get comfortable pleasing her!

 Charis was almost naked now. Her body still youthful and pretty, her breasts ripe because she still had a small child and her skin was warm and perfect. In order to please her properly though, he had to get the rest off of her. She laughed when he wanted to remove her last bit of clothing, but then she arched her hips to let him do the job. It was easy and soon her subligar landed on the floor too. Alexius wasn’t disappointed - but for her sake, he had to be a little more patient. He could tell from her expression, that she wasn’t used to this situation. He bet her master usually ordered her to undress and just flop onto her back instead of doing what Alexius did… asking her, helping her, being attentive. Well he wasn’t her master. She was his, tonight.

 He watched her shift and smiled when she touched his chest. She could touch all she wanted! Then he leaned down to first focus on her breasts once more, with hands, lips and tongue, until his one hand slid further down and between her legs to touch her there too. From his position he looked up at her, just to check how she was doing – if she seemed to like what he did or what. In any case, it would let him know what to do next.

Charis let out a sound, somewhere between a mewl and a gasp as his hands and lips and tongue caressed every inch of her. It was a reaction she couldn't control and felt herself flush from the tips of her curled toes to her head at the sensation. No wonder Alexius had legions of adoring fans when he could provoke such intensity in just a few moments. Fortunately for her she couldn't dwell on how many women had lain where she now lay, nor the usually pervasive thoughts of Tertius; Alexius' ministrations were successfully scattering her wits until all she could think about was how it felt and the pleasure of each and every touch. 

Her hands snaked around his face until she was unintentionally gripping the back of his head, her fingers working into his hair. Her body arched with his as a hand moved down between her thighs. She gasped and screwed her eyes shut. It might have looked to an observer as if she was in pain, but she was merely wallowing in pleasure. Her breath caught in her throat and almost instinctively she reached a hand down his own body to his manhood. Maybe it was just something she had been taught? That there was no pleasure for women if there wasn't equal, or more intense pleasure for men? Either way, her hand began a steady rhythm as she herself writhed at the motions of Alexius' hand.

Just the sounds of her feeling the pleasure and joy he gave her was enough to make him want to fuck her good and hard, but not yet, because she wanted him to take his time. On the other hand, she did want him to worship her and what better way to worship a woman, than by showing her just how badly you wanted to please her – and yourself at the same time? But he could fight the urge to have her right now. Alexius didn’t lose his virginity yesterday, far from it, and he had sex frequently enough to not be too needy when it happened. He was instead able to take his time with his Charis, if that’s what she wanted… and it was. She said as much.

 When his hand reached between her thighs, she arched up against him and he felt her hand in his hair and let out a little sound himself – it didn’t feel too bad at all to have her control him like this. She was trembling and writhing and when he looked at her, her eyes were shut hard, as if she fought to control what she felt. But she shouldn’t have to. She should just let it go… let it go all go and be as loud as she felt like, because it didn’t matter.

 Then he felt her hand reach down his body and let out a deep sigh when she wrapped her hand around him, "Gods, Charis..." Words escaped his lips, everything about this felt good, now her hand too! He felt he was already steaming with lust and they’d barely begun! Alexius looked up at her and moved up to her lips again, kissing her heatedly, grinding his manhood against her hand and his own hand against her most sensitive, intimate part, “Tell me…” He said breathlessly when he broke the kiss briefly, “Do you want me now?” Because that’s what her hand at his member told him, but as mentioned, Charis was a mystery and he didn’t want to do anything she wasn’t ready for.

Charis let out a mewl of pleasure against his lips as he kissed her hard, feeling him press against her body.

It was intoxicating and the sensations, the lust she felt was unlike anything she had ever experienced before. She had never felt she needed somebody, something as much as she did now - not with Immin, not with Tertius. Is this how it was supposed to feel? Sex had always been somewhat of a chore for her. She enjoyed it with her husband, but never reached ecstasy like she knew some women did. With Tertius there were too many complex emotions to make it pleasurable, even on the rare occasions he prioritised her. This...This with Alexius was something, utterly, utterly different. Is this what she'd been missing out on all this time?! 

She moved her hand in a steady rhythm around him as he continued the kiss. When he broke it and continued his ministrations between her thighs she felt herself nod, breathlessly agreeing with him - rationality out of the window. "Y-yes, yes I want you now." Because she did. She felt almost a hunger for him, as if she was ravenous and this was all she needed. She moved her hand from his manhood and wrapped it around his neck and shoulders, pulling his body closer to hers and in for a kiss. Maybe when she regained her senses, when they were in a rhythm she would take back control, but all she could do now was help guide him in, feeling an almost desperation for him.

The sounds of pleasure escaping her lips did nothing to dim his desire for her. Quite the opposite. Alexius loved such sounds, he loved knowing that he made someone else feel so good that there was no way to they could stay quiet. They had to let it out. And right now, he was doing it to Charis. She felt so good already. Her breast soft and firm at the same time, probably because she was still feeding her son at home. He didn’t mind that at all, it just made her chest so much more appealing actually. And her body, so warm, writing underneath him, longing for him.

 And her hand around his manhood, moving… it was almost more than he could take, it felt so good and she returned the hard kiss he gave to her, while he asked her if she wanted him now, because then she would have him! The night had only just begun and Alexius had plenty of stamina for these things… he could do it again and again. Especially with someone as sexy as Charis was underneath him! She said she wanted him, she spoke through her breath and then she moved her hand from him. He let out a sigh of surprise, missing her hand, but then she was pulling him closer against her. With his legs he gently spread hers wider.

 “Wrap yourself around me…” Alexius said against her lips and slid a hand underneath her bottom to ease her more up against him. Alexius wanted her to feel all of him and in his experience, that would make a good start. He didn’t need her to guide him much more, he easily found his way, trying to be careful for the first few thrusts at least. Slowly he let himself fill her up, sighing again by the feeling of her… and then he paused, looking at her to make sure he wasn’t hurting her – he didn’t know when she last slept with someone, after all. If she seemed to be alright, he’d begin moving.

Charis, forgetting herself, did as she was bidden and wrapped her legs around his hips. The sensation was unlike anything she'd experienced before. Her husband had never given her pleasure - a fact Tertius seemed to revel in when he had those few times he'd made an effort, but even then the sense of guilt and shame that she'd enjoyed it had overridden any sense of ecstasy. With Alexius, it was uncomplicated and it took her breath away. 

When he entered her she couldn't help herself and arched up against him, a moan breaking from her lips as she buried her face in the curve of his neck. She felt like she was drowning in something, but it felt excellent. The fact that he seemed intent on being gentle, on being kind to her only increased the emotional and physical pressure she felt. A few errant tears escaped the corners of her eyes and slid down her face - getting lost in her hair. This is what she had been missing out on. 

As she opened her eyes she saw him, watching her as his movements steadied and she hurriedly reached up to leave a hasty, desperate kiss against his lips. She didn't want him to stop - she felt an animal-esque desire for him to keep moving, to keep doing what he had done, and it was too much to bare. Breaking the kiss she moved her palms flat against his chest and then attempted to move him to his back so she was atop. She wanted to be in control, but she needed him and she wouldn't let him stop.

How did one woman, short as she was, make him feel so amazing? Alexius might never understand why. To some it might seem like he was the one out there, wanting sex and pleasure, but really it was them, giving it to him, taking it from him – but they still had no idea which power they held over him. Think if they knew! But he couldn’t think about that right now, only about how it felt like he went deeper, when she wrapped her legs around him and she even arched up against him, moaning against his neck while he moved, giving her all that he could and then some.

 His one hand held him up on the bed next to her and the other he used to touch her, feeling her body, keeping her as close as he possibly could. His lips found her bare skin, caressing her while also making love to her. Because that’s what he was doing, at least right now. Right now, no one else in the world mattered more to him, than she did. He felt her eyes on him though and gave her a smile, after she gave him a heated and quick kiss. It was then he felt her hand on his chest, pushing against him. She wanted him to move.

 Alexius slid an arm underneath her to keep her there, while he gently rolled them over, so she’d be on top. She didn’t need to speak. He rested his head on the simple pillow, looking up at the beauty now above him. His hands were free now, free to roam her body and her curves, “You’re so… divine Charis…” Alexius said and then grinned, “… and it’s your turn. Take me.”

Charis felt more like herself than she had done in the nearly two years she had spent in Rome. She felt powerful, confident, unstoppable. As Alexius assisted her in rising over him, she felt her breath hitch in her throat. Any other day, any other time, his compliment might of made her blush but not today. Today she let it wash over her, genuinely believing it. When was the last time she had believed a man's kind words and not looked for deception in them? Not since Immin, she supposed. 

She didn't really know what she was doing. She wasn't skilled in making love, not like Alexius or many of his previous bedmates she was sure. She only did what felt natural, what felt pleasurable - as if the knowledge was ingrained in her. She kept up the rhythm he had been keeping when he was above her, moving her hips as a flush spread across her chest at his touch. Every nerve felt on fire, every bit of her begged for his caress. 

She'd climaxed before, but never really knew what it was. It had happened so fast with Tertius that time that for a moment she had thought it unnatural - that something was wrong with her. Now it was different, and as her body moved against his she felt something build. It started in the pit of her belly, stretching out to her toes which curled up to her chest as her breathing intensified. She moved her body down, taking him deeper as she hungrily kissed him, her nails digging into the skin of her bicep as she felt something building. "I-I'm close," was all she could mutter out as her body moved with his.

She better believe his words – there was definitely not deception here, just pure truth. She was divine, as she now sat on top of him, straddling him, towering over him. She was in control now, or well, for as long as he would allow it… but as long as she seemed to enjoy it – and she did! – he would let her do whatever she felt was right. She was moving, found a good rhythm and Alexius’ hands fell to her hips, keeping her steady and taking her in. Gods she felt good! He never knew she’d come tonight but thank the gods that she did!

 He felt how her body began to tremble and he smile, when she moved down to kiss him. Alexius bent his legs a bit, for support and to help her while he returned her fierce kiss. He moaned when she dug her nails into his skin, for some reason, pain during pleasure just made the pleasure feel more intense! She said she was close, “Then don’t stop…” Alexius said against her lips, beckoned her to continue and slid a hand between their bodies and between her thighs to touch her while she was riding him, to make it feel even better for her - because the sensation and sound of a woman reaching her climax was amazing, to say it mildly.

Charis couldn't have stopped even if she wanted to, the feelings that overtook her seemed to start somewhere deep within her belly and her chest and was impossible to hold back. She grinned against his lips, a genuine smile, overcome with emotion and the feelings she was experiencing. And then he touched her and it all came crashing down; her hands gripped the muscles of his arms and she let out a mewl which sounded as if she were in pain when it was the farthest thing from her mind. It came in waves, making her tremble, making her toes curl, making her forget everything and everybody until she almost couldn't breathe. 

She lost her balance as the climax rolled over her, and wobbled - falling off of him and on to her side, where she landed on the bed in a breathless gasp. She could have stayed there for hours, washed in the glow of her pleasure, but she knew he hadn't finished, and she knew she didn't want to let him go. She grinned almost shyly at him, her head on the pillows next to him and reached out a hand to his jaw, stroking it softly before reaching her fingers around to his neck to pull him into a deep kiss.

He was sighing and grunting slightly underneath her body, while she rode him, better and faster as she seemed to be close to her climax. And was she amazing? The feeling of her, the sound of her, the sight of her… but he could make it better for her and when she grinned against his lips, he touched her too and that seemed to send her over the edge. Alexius smiled against her skin, when she trembled and certainly let him hear that she had reached said climax. Not that she planned to let him hear it, just happened. It felt good to him too, very good, but he had enough stamina and he could last longer than that. Although even if he’d climaxed too, he’d probably be ready for another around soon anyway.

When she fell off him, landing beside him, he chuckled, she was so… divine and cute at the same time! She seemed... happy. Was there anything more beautiful than a satisfied woman? Alexius inhaled a few breaths too, catching his own, until he turned his head to look at her and she grinned at him and then reached to kiss him. Alexius returned the kiss, rolling onto his side to make it better, “I hope… you’re not done yet.” He said against her lips, running his fingers through her hair when the kiss broke, “We’ve only just begun. You know that, right?” She did come to him after all and she must have come to him, not just because she knew he’d want her too, but because she knew what he was all about and had a good feeling of what he could do. And what she could do with him.

Right now though, she might need a few moments to relax… “Thirsty?” Alexius then asked with a smile. Before she could answer, he slid away from her, leaving the bed to first empty his own cup, that still stood on the table. Then he picked up her cup from the floor, filled it with fresh wine and brought it to the bed.

Charis felt breathless, still riding the waves of pleasure as he pulled away. Her toes curled into the sheet on the bed and she managed - just - to roll onto her back. She moved a trembling hand to her chest to feel her heart fluttering under her skin in a fast, hard rhythm. She chuckled with a little grin at his comment and was about to push herself up against the cushions to begin again - knowing he hadn't climaxed yet - when he slid away from her, off of the bed. 

She blinked, genuinely confused. Her evenings with Tertius had been fairly...perfunctory for the most part, and seldom if ever concentrated on her pleasure. "Where are you going? You haven't..." She trailed off, a little embarrassed that she should even raise it. But it was far out of the ordinary for her. 

As he walked around, she pulled loose the sheet and covered herself with it - feeling a touch self-conscious now they had paused for respite. When he picked up the cup, filled it and held it out to her, she lifted her arm from under the sheet and took it with a shy smile. "Yes, thank you." She sipped it and pulled her knees under the sheet, up to her chest. She sipped from it deeper and felt her inhibitions loosen again, as they had before. 

"You're..." She considered her words as her fingers twiddled with the cup, "Different to the others." It sounded insincere, but wasn't. Of the three men she'd been with in her life, Alexius was most definitely...a standout.

Charis was sweet, Alexius thought to himself. Sexy and sweet and lovely. Well that’s everything he loved about a woman, so how could he not enjoy her? And it had been good, the first round, but they had barely begun. Was she even aware of that? That Alexius could keep going when he got started. But he allowed her a break, although she seemed surprised when he left the bed. He smiled at her words, she seemed almost confused because he had not reached his point of full satisfaction yet – she knew that much, at least.

 “I know… but we’re not busy, are we? Didn’t you say you had all night?” Alexius asked with a grin and brought her a cup of wine. She took it and sipped it, sitting there covered in the sheet. Alexius sat down on the bed to take her cup once she had finished and Charis called him different.

 “Am I? I hope that’s a good thing.” He chuckled, it wasn’t new to him, but that didn’t mean he did not enjoy hearing it, “Although I think it is. How do you think I’m different?” Alexius asked then, he really was curious about what she thought about it. It wasn’t new, but every woman had her own story and every woman felt different. They were all gorgeous, but he also appreciated their distinctions. He wondered what made him so different from the other men in her life though.

Charis grinned and arched a brow at him, saying nothing. All night...in her head, all night had not actually meant all night. At this rate, and if they carried on with their nocturnal activities in any way similar to before, she didn't know if she was even going to be able to walk come morning...! 

Charis groaned as he pressed her for how he was different. She felt embarrassment creep up on her and flush her cheeks a rosy pink. She rolled her eyes and pulled the sheet to cover her face, pouting beneath it. "Don't make me explain!" She said with a breathy laugh, and then slowly dragged the sheet from her face, wincing in humiliation as she did so. "I've just..." The wine was loosening her tongue, "I've not been with many men. You are the third," She groaned again and sunk down lower into the bed - trying to simply melt away out of embarrassment, "And neither of the others...well...the other two didn't really...care to make me happy, not in bed at least. Not often." Shamefully, Tertius tried more than her husband, Gods keep his soul. 

"So...you are different." She chuckled and moved her hands to his shoulder, her fingers softly stroking patterns in his skin as she sipped her wine.

It was nice getting to know Charis better than he had before… they were friends and now they were friends with benefits, which wasn’t a bad thing at all. Knowing her better made him more able to understand her and figure out how best to please her and make her smile. And after what she’d experienced in Rome… she deserved such things. She grinned at his words and he had sat down on the bed, wondering just how he was different to the others men she’d been with.

 He chuckled when she blushed and hid underneath the sheet, but then she came out again, confessing he was only the third man she ever slept with. Alexius arched a brow, kind of surprised. She was so beautiful and sweet. She continued to tell him the other men didn’t care to make her happy in bed. Charis then began touching him again and Alexius smiled, leaning closer, “I don’t know why they wouldn’t want to make you happy in bed.” He said and pressed a soft kiss against her lips, they tasted like wine.

 “I want to make you happy… seeing you so satisfied… I don’t know how it works, but somehow, it makes you even more beautiful. Not that you weren’t before, but…” He nipped at her lips again, “Don’t ever let anyone else tell you otherwise. You deserve it.” Alexius took her cup and sat it down onto the floor and then he glanced up at her with a grin, “Have you caught your breath?” Are you ready for more?

Charis had slept better than she had done in months, years maybe. Granted, they hadn't actually managed to sleep until well until the early hours of the morning, but when she had finally managed to drift off she had been asleep before her head even hit the pillow. 

Yet now the sun was streaming through the shuttered window into the insula and the faint sound of somebody else stirring, jolted her awake. She groaned and buried her face into the neck of her bedmate - hair knotted, a mess, and eyes bleary as she slowly cracked them open. She should have felt embarrassed, or ashamed of what she had done last night, but she didn't. She felt confident, she felt empowered and more fundamentally - she felt thoroughly satisfied. 

She grinned up at Alexius as he stirred, and reached a hand to trace over his jaw. "Good morning." Her throat was dry, her voice hoarse but the thought of wine turned her stomach. Pulling the sheet up over herself she relaxed into his side. "Would it be...sad of me to thank you for last night?"

It felt so nice, sleeping with Charis. The actual sleeping part felt nice too. But he’d rather enjoyed what they did before too, only he hoped she would be able to walk properly the day after and that she wouldn’t be too tired. Well she could have said she was exhausted… but she didn’t really, not until they both seemed to be and they fell asleep, curled against each other. He liked her. He’d liked her since he met her, but she’d always resisted him. Until now.

 Did it mean anything? Alexius had a bit of an issue with that… he tended to feel strongly for anyone he slept with and it sometimes felt like he was falling in love. But that would last until he met someone new, which was likely to be the next night. He knew he cared about Charis though and it did feel right, to hold her and sleep next to her. His rest was calm and relaxed until morning came and he stirred. He felt Charis shift too and when he looked at her, she was grinning at him, bidding him a good morning, “Good morning lover.” Alexius replied with a smile and when she nestled against him, he held her close, kissed her hair. It did feel nice… all of it. All of her.

 He chuckled at her sweet question, “Only if you think it is. I’ll take the compliment and remember it.” He replied, “I guess you’re going soon though? Or maybe…” He smiled playfully, shifted, facing her better, letting a hand slide down over her body under the sheet, “How busy are you?” Last night was last night. He’d slept now, he wasn’t tired anymore. And who knew, maybe Charis could use a bit more pleasure too?

Charis grinned into his neck, blushing. How she could still be so embarrassed, even after what they had...done last night, was beyond her. He had a way of making her flush though, and grin like a foolish girl. His hand over her body made her squirm and giggle though, finding the sweep of his fingers ticklish. "Stop it," She smirked and left a soft kiss on his neck, pushing away his hand. "I am busy, I...have to go back." She swallowed. Back to her reality, a reality she had forgotten for a whole evening of bliss. 

She didn't have a great deal of time to dwell though, as a knock sounded out on the door. It couldn't have been long past dawn and Charis groaned and slumped back onto the bed. "Seems I'm not the only one vying for your attention." She arched a brow up at him. She could hear Lexus' breathing, sound and solid, from over at the other end of the room and so she nudged Alexius with her foot. "Better go get that, and I'll get dressed and be on my way." 

She made no move to get up out of the bed though and instead curled further into the sheets, "After a little more of a sleep..."

Teutus had wanted to discuss something with Alexius regarding their new business venture. Knowing where the other man lived, it made more sense to him to seek Alexius out than to hope that the man might come up to the house - and Teutus valued his own time and the freedom to decide to leave the house when he wanted to, rather than only leaving when ordered to run an errand or after asking permission (Tertius had never been one for sentimentality and had treated Teutus in the same way as he'd treated any other slave he owned, while Teutus was still his slave.)

He climbed the stairs to Alexius' small apartment, stepping aside for the girl who delivered the vegetables as she passed him on her way down, and knocked on Alexius' door. It was early, sure, but not so early that he thought he might be disturbing anything.

Alexius was no longer tired or exhausted – he had slept, it was morning and he had a beautiful, young woman in his bed. One he liked a lot too! Last night had been lovely, he bet she’d learned a new thing or two and she had definitely been satisfied more than once, Alexius was sure of it. Now here they were and she grinned into his neck, before he touched her, suggesting another round of sex, but she giggled at his touch and said she had to go back.

 “It doesn’t have to take long. Although that would be better.” He grinned back at her, she was so sweet, to think she still acted like this after last night. A little morning round never hurt anyone though, more the opposite, when you were warm and relaxed in bed already, sometimes it felt even more comfortable… he was thinking of how to convince her, when there was a knock on the door and Alexius looked towards it. Charis commented on it and said he should go and open the door. Alexius sighed, “You’re probably right. You better come back here sometime though.” Alexius said with another grin and kissed her shoulder, before he slid out of the bed and picked up his tunica to toss over his head.  

 Lexus still seemed to be asleep, he probably got home late, Alexius hadn’t even heard him come in, in fact. And the boy was used to Alexius having guests in the morning, so he could sleep through it. Although now there was no ‘it’ to sleep through. He glanced briefly at Charis, before closing the curtains around the bed and then moving to open the door.

 He was surprised to see Teutus out there! It had been a while and although the younger man was a welcome sight, Alexius already had a guest in his bed… “Goodmorning, Teutus…” Alexius began, offering Teutus a smile while thinking Charis probably didn’t want him to invite anyone in, so he didn’t open the door fully yet, “It’s a a pleasure to see you, but…" He scratched the back of his head, "What can I do for you?”

"There's a new warehouse for rent down near the river,I thought we might take a look together and see if it would be suitable," Teutus said, a little nonplussed that Alexius obviously wanted to keep him out of the apartment on the landing. Still, it wasn't a big deal, and he stepped back a little, making it clear he wasn't about to push his way in where it was obvious he wasn't wanted. 

He probably had a girl in there or something, he'd struck Teutus as the sort who brought his favoured people home, and who found several people who took his favour. 

"Is it a bad time right now? I can come back later if you want."

They had talked once or twice since their meeting last year, regarding the business they talked about starting together. Alexius was definitely still interested – while it wasn’t always too bad to change employer so often, it got a little tiresome in the long run and something steady would be better, for both him and for Lexus. But he hadn’t known he’d be discussing it now with Teutus. The other seemed excited about a new warehouse and wanted to go and see it with Alexius. Then wondered if now was a bad time. Alexius glanced over his shoulder, scratching his neck, thinking. He didn’t want to just tell Teutus to go, or the other might get the idea Alexius wasn’t interested. It wasn’t very polite to do that.

“Well you caught me in bed, literally… maybe you could come in and wait, while I get dressed.” Charis was welcome to stay for as long as she liked, Lexus was here and besides, why shouldn’t Alexius trust her? He was probably too trusting, but he didn’t think Charis would steal from him. What was there to steal anyway?

“Charis?!” Alexius then called out towards his bed, from the door, “I have a guest, I hope it’s alright I invite him in?” If he knew Lexus, the boy would probably just drag a pillow and a blanket over his head and keep on sleeping. It was like that with young people that age, at least young people who weren’t slaves and didn’t have to get up. It was more Charis he was worried about, but surely she’d not mind Alexius inviting a guest in, when it was business related? She could just stay in bed behind the curtains, after all. But she did say she'd have to leave soon. So now she had a chance to get dressed before his guest saw her, at least. If she didn't mind.

Charis heard Alexius talking to somebody but the bed was so warm and so comfortable she couldn't resist staying tangled in the sheets, curled like a cat lazing in the sun. She knew she had to leave soon but two more minutes couldn't hurt, could it? Even with their nighttime...activities, this was still some of the most sleep she'd had in months as Peregrinus was going through some sort of moody phase where he woke every hour on the hour, if not more frequently. 

Pulling her arm up to shield her eyes, she felt herself drift back to sleep. Not a deep, sound sleep, but a doze that lasted for a few moments and had the unfortunate effect of making her forget exactly where she was. When she did finally manage to rouse herself after a few minutes of peaceful slumber, it was to Alexius' voice the other side of the curtain. Half-asleep and utterly content, she ventured a yawn and pulling the sheet up around herself, she stumbled out through the sliver of a gap and into the main room. She couldn't remember why Alexius had left the bed.

"W-who are you speaking to?" She said as her voice stretched into a deep yawn and she turned sleepy eyes to Alexius and then to a shadow to her left. It took her a moment to register it as a person and when she did, she only kept herself steady by clutching back onto the curtain behind her. "Teu...Teutus?!"
