Well, they're pretty close to naked. Jerel is not gonna keep his hands off Dick, especially since he's got miles and miles of hot, interesting skin to explore. But he can respect an underwear rule... or, mostly. He'll sneak his fingers under the hem just a little, as his teeth graze Dick's jaw.
Excellent, 'cause Jerel is really in favour of the moaning. He's going to use all of his anatomical knowledge to ensure the moaning keeps up.

Jerel might be able to brush against a little bit of pubes before Dick makes a pained kind of noise and pulls his hand away. He won't stop kissing Jerel, not if he can help it, but he'll pull his hand(s) up to his chest again. 
Not playing fair, Jerel.

Causing a pretty lippy pout. But like I said, he can respect an underwear rule. And hot damn, Dick's got so much chest to play with! Including those perky little nipples, which are gonna be Jerel's best friends.
No one said he had to.

Dick may or may not love every second of Jerel making friends, there. And pepper tiny kisses all around Jerel's mouth until it's about time to ease off. He'll sit and run his fingers up Jerel's side before he asks, "So, I can crash here tonight?" 
No, but no-one said he couldn't be called on it either.

"Like I'd let you leave," Jerel scoffs. "I just got used to your ridiculous body heat, y'not gonna leave me in the cold, are you?"
Maybe this'll be one of Dick's hints towards Jerel's dark past life as a hotshot doctor.

Dick pulls Jerel's earlobe into his mouth and bites gently. "Not if I can help it," he says through his teeth. 
Is he going to try to keep that to himself?

Jerel rewards Dick with a soft moan. "What a good samaritan." 
Well, he's quit being a doctor to join circus school. Not something he wants spread around all that much. No one's gonna understand.

"I have my moments," Dick growls, playing it up for Jerel so that he moans again. 
Well, maybe if they were all doctors or lawyers or something. But they're all people who want to work in a circus themselves. And Dick's /circus folk/. He would totally understand running away from something so serious and stifling, with no sense of community or family. Or, at least, not like what you get with circus life.

That growl sends an honest-to-god shiver down Jerel's spine. Jesus. "Shoulda warned me."
Well, Jerel thinks that no one understands him. Of course.

Dick closes his eyes briefly. Normal people throw the word relationship around a lot, he knows. But he likes the sound of something legit. Obviously it's impossible, but if he doesn't know how to lie to himself for a short time by /now/, he's a lost cause. "You're the baddest, drunky," he teases.

Dick's mouth falls open, a surprised and noiseless moan, and grips Jerel's hips before crushing their mouths together again. He /was/ supposed to be winding down and talking Jerel into sleeping. Didn't work out.

Yeah, that sounds about right. And Jerel is such a fucking snuggle buddy when he's drunk. You never get better hugs out of him than when he's drunk or when he's just come.

He really does. His Typing even extends to his lover probably monkeying all around him in his sleep and drooling on his shoulder, waking up in the morning with a boner and a snort, and grinning insufferably.

Dick's kind of looking forward to nursing Jerel's hangover? But that's just his Being Needed fetish showing through a little. And maybe he's buying himself more time being with Jerel before they fuck. I don't think it would be conscious, expecting them to grow apart after sex, but it's a common pattern with Dick. 

My fangirl brain is just screaming PEOPLE USE HIM AND LOSE HIM but Dick's far nicer about the whole thing than I am.

No problem with that. Jerel's gonna laze around as much as he can, these days--he's enjoying not being on call for forty-eight hours straight. So if Dick wants to bring him greasy food in bed and stroke his hair as he winces away from light and sound, Jerel ain't gonna complain. 

He's such a freakin' sweetie. It feels a bit true with this Jerel, too, he seems more like the fling, but he'll probably get addicted to the fucking and the affection and then, whoops, what have you done to him, Dick, he's in ~love~, ugh

He'll disappear when Jerel is sleeping to pick up breakfast. Coffee and maybe ham toasties and donuts. He wouldn't want to wake Jerel but Dick doesn't sleep all that much, so he would have to do something.

Dick supplies the fucking so he can administer the affection. It's also not untrue to say that he's had people accidentally fall in love with him before. He's even loved them back, fiercely. But love is not a weakness he can usually afford to have.

I am going to leave Damian and Colin for now because I hate going through ALL THE PAGES on the phone, heh.

Oh, the smell of coffee would /definitely/ wake Jerel up. Grabby hands and closed eyes, sniffing out the coffee like a bomb dog.

I'm willing to bet that this particular Dick and Jerel pair may have their fair share of... misunderstandings as they sort themselves out. Dick will be trying not to fall in love, and Jerel won't have any idea how to be in love, the snuggling will weird Jerel out, the fucking won't make Dick happy...

That is fair enough.

Dick's going to stand at the door to the bedroom, holding coffee and laughing. "If I were any kind of proper teacher, I'd get you to do a few well-needed lunges before letting you have this," he says before crossing the room to the bed and handing Jerel his coffee. At this point, he may already know how he takes it. 

Dick doesn't mind falling in love. Someone doesn't have to love him back for him to love them. It'll be the part where Jerel gets weirded out that'll hurt his feelings, but he'll only show it once. Briefly. Then he'll limit the snuggling, if he can. He's not wholly in control of what his body seeks when he sleeps. But, if it means he can watch Jerel when /he/ sleeps and Dick can bring him coffee in the morning and smile at him when he's not looking, Dick doesn't mind just being a fuck-buddy. He'd enjoy it, actually. The sad fact of the matter is that, growing up with Bruce, he's well used to loving recklessly and getting little back unless he gives what's expected of him - as cold as that sounds :/ (That is not how Dick would put it, that is all me.)

Jerel whines. "No lunges before coffee." As soon as the cup is in his hands, Jerel inhales gratefully and, on the exhale, opens his eyes. "Hot damn. You look even better this morning than you did last night. Please tell me you're not a morning person."

Augh. As soon as Dick starts to limit the snuggling, Jerel will be missing it without realising he is. He'll seek it out, unconsciously, trying to get the warmth back, and that'll probably just hurt Dick even more, because he'll think Jerel doesn't mean it.

"Not really. I don't sleep much, though," Dick says, stirring his own coffee. "I've been awake for a while. I take it you're just as much as a sleeping beauty when you're sober?"

Well. It'll hurt him more but in a really weird way. His brain reasons it as a Grayson version of bad attention is still attention: insincere cuddles are still cuddles. If he ever let himself think about that reasoning, it would hurt him.

"Can't get enough of my Zs," Jerel admits. He sips his own coffee; the strong black flavour nearly makes his eyes roll back. "You got it just the way I like it. Come back to bed."

Honeysweetiebabypieeeeeee. Eventually Jerel's going to pick up on the fact that the last three nights out of four they've fallen asleep snuggling on the sofa in front of Law & Order marathons instead of after being fucked out, which will strike him as incredibly strange and a bit scary and he won't know how to deal with it.

Dick smirks slightly. He's not as good as Tim with coffee orders, but sometimes he knocks it out of the park. He's decided to let this happen with Jerel, so he means to knock it out of the park in as many way and as often as possible. "Sure thing," he says, toeing off his shoes. 

Will he say anything to Dick about how he's freaking maybe a little?

Jerel will be lazy and warm with bed, and Dick will no doubt be a bit chilled from outside, but he'll smell so good, like sunlight and coffee and--mmm, food, there must be food somewhere--and not at all like hangover. Jerel is going to curl his non-coffee hand around Dick's waist and bury his face in his thigh. 

Without a doubt. Jerel doesn't keep much to himself, especially about his feelings. If he's freaked, he's freaked. He'll probably just up and say, hey, why haven't we been fucking as much, is that weird, is that on purpose?

Dick smiles widely. "Oh, hey, I like that," he says, leaning back and trailing fingers down Jerel's back. "We've only made out and you're all cool with extreme face smooshing. I can totally dig that." He's not joking.

And Dick will freeze for a split-second then smile and start to saunter until he's close enough to kiss Jerel into feeling better.

Jerel makes a little satisfied noise at the back touches. "I trust you to catch me when 'm falling through the air, some extreme face smooshing ain't gonna chase me away."

Which will no doubt distract Jerel until the next time it occurs to him that they haven't fucked for a few days--and he doesn't mind all that much. He loves it when it happens, but he doesn't expect it, and he doesn't feel obligated, and it's just as nice to do other things.

"I trust you to try not to fall in the first place," Dick says, mostly casual. There may be a bite of warning to his words, but it's calm. "But I'll catch whenever I can." It's true, and true of anyone he works with or will work with. He doesn't give a thought to how it might sound in this particular situation, however. 

Dick won't give him more than two days without sex after his initial freak out. Just throwing that out there. It is nice to do other things, and Dick loves doing them, but he hates making Jerel upset. He wants to knock it out of the park, after all.

"You don't have to be worried about death wishes with me," Jerel says. He keeps the coffee carefully away from Dick's lap as he sips it, then returns to his facesmoosh position. 

He has been. It's just, well, they're gonna be in a relationship. That's going to be obvious to everyone but Jerel. But eventually Jerel's gonna figure it out, and that's gonna be a whole 'nother bucket of weird. Plus--oh, man--what if there's a night where Dick's putting the moves on and all Jerel wants to do is nuzzle and make out a bit and eat pizza. Is Dick gonna think he's done something wrong?

"Says the circus school student," Dick laughs. "If you wanted no death wishes, you should have picked animal care." He eyes what Jerel is doing with that hot coffee by his lap, but he doesn't move. 

Yes. Without a doubt. It will have been two days and he knows that three days means a freakout but Jerel doesn't want to do the thing he keeps Dick for. Dick's first instinct would be to stay out of Jerel's way. If Dick's not there, he can't be yelled at or left (he hates angry yelling and he has some amount of abandonment issues). He's learned to fight those instincts, though, so he'll stay - quiet and unlike himself and waiting for a bomb to drop.

That's trust right there. "You kidding? I probably would have gone with lions or something, knowing me. I like a thrill. Not death." Jerel nuzzles Dick's thigh a little. He's starting to wake up, and Dick's got such nice skin, and he didn't get to touch all this.

And Jerel is going to be all sorts of aware that Dick is tense and strange, suddenly, and he won't be able to puzzle out why, and no matter what he does he can't get Dick to relax. He won't respond to tickling, he doesn't smile when Jerel tucks his feet under Dick's butt, he doesn't grumble when Jerel flicks straight past Gray's Anatomy... something's up and he doesn't know what and he needs to know.
Which will be the moment that he realises he /cares/ if Dick is okay.

"Lions and tigers and bears?" Dick drawls and if he's saying something entirely normal. "Oh my. Well, that's kind of high-end, You Will Definitely Get Mauled stuff. Start off with something easy. Elephants." Dick brightens--then dims. "I miss my elephant. But you'd be good with them, I think." 

I think that Dick would and wouldn't smile at Jerel's attempts to get him to relax. He would smile but it wouldn't be the easy-going thing that Jerel would have gotten used to. It would be the constant not-real smile of someone who's trained their unhappy face to look happy.

"You've hung out with elephants? That's fucking cool." Jerel rolls onto his side, so he can look up at Dick. "Tell me about it?" 

And as someone top-3%-of-the-class at anatomy, Jerel would definitely be able to tell the difference. And he'd /hate/ it. He'd be sure he'd done something wrong, that this isn't how casual relationships are supposed to be and Dick's cottoned on already and he's pulling away.

"Zitka was my elephant," Dick says, smiling a little and letting his fingers follow the turn of Jerel's body. "She was my best friend, I guess. Not my only one, but she was special. I suppose it was like having a gigantic, super smart labrador growing up. She was there when I was born, too. She looked after me. We looked after each other." 

I think that Dick would stay until mid-evening and then get up to go. And he'd say goodbye to Jerel, but it'd be bittersweet with him trying to smile cheerfully through legitimate sadness. He hates endings because he never gets as much time as he would want with the person he's with.

"That sounds awesome." Jerel sips his coffee. He can tell something horrible must have happened. Too many past participles. 

And Jerel would just be /so confused/, because he'd thought they were going so well. But then he'll remember there's been those weird times when he'd suddenly realised Dick wasn't really into having sex that night, but he was doing it anyway, and those other times when he just couldn't get a hold of Dick (Dick being on Batbusiness, no doubt)... and damn, Dick's just got this super sad look on his face. So he'd blurt, as he holds onto the door and Dick leaves, "Are you breaking up with me?"
Despite the fact that they'd never been 'officially' together to begin with.

"It /was/ awesome!" Dick grins. "I would ride her when we paraded in new towns and she'd help me train when I was little. She was kinda bad at fetch, though," he scratches his chin, looking down at Jerel and waiting for the laugh. 

Dick sets his jaw. He was hoping he didn't have to talk through this, for once. "Only if that makes you feel better," he says slowly. "I've been getting the feeling that maybe you didn't want to be the one who did it. That's not the best reason to stick with someone. But it's okay. I can take the hit." There's another one of the Grayson trademark flickers of pure heartbreak, then he's back to baseline sad.

Jerel can't help but oblige, imagining a tiny Dick and an enormous elephant, Dick getting all exasperated when the elephant just didn't bring him the stick. "So--where were you, that you had an elephant?"

Jerel kind of huddles next to the door. He was the one who broke up with girls in high school, and he's been the one to call off the flings at the hospital, if ever they went beyond one-night stands. So he doesn't know how to deal with this... this conversation.
And this ache.
He has to ask. "So what did I do?"

Dick raises an eyebrow and knocks lightly on Jerel's forehead, wondering if anyone's home. "I teach at a circus school? You may have seen me around there," he snorts, then smooths out Jerel's hair because it's right there. "I'm a circus kid. Born and raised. You know that, right?" 

"You?" Dick nearly laughs. Nearly. If he had a drop more cynicism in his body, he would have. As it stood, he looks sadder. "No. No, not you. I - wow, no, you're /perfect/. I just, I guess I don't want you to pretend any more. And now that--" you don't /want/ me for what I'm good for"--look, it might just be good to quit here."

Jerel goes to bat Dick's hand away, then lets him be when he gets to the hair stroking, giving him an exasperated look instead. "Yeah, I got that part. I just didn't think there were many circuses in America that kept animals anymore."

"Pretend about what?" Jerel gives him a weird look. He's fighting off his own sad expression, because he's got no right to be sad, not when he's given so many flings the flick. It's probably about time he got a dose of his own medicine. "If I'm so perfect, why the fuck are you walking out on me at seven-thirty on a Thursday?"
