Title: Skin (3/?)
Author: [ profile] millionstar
Pairing: Belldom, AU
Rating: This chapter, R.
Here there be: Language, Illness (nothing serious though)
Summary: Taken from the [ profile] mkmeme prompt: here: Dom Howard is a (The) young millionaire Playboy who runs a porn empire and has a fondness for red velvet smoking jackets. Matt Bellamy, on a whim of Howard's staff, is taken on as the first (and only) male Playboy Bunny, with a costume and everything. Dom doesn't really approve... at first.
Disclaimer: I don't own Matt or Dom, no profit is being made, and this is fiction. Also, if any OC's bear a resemblance to certain inhabitants of Camelot, well, it's simply coincidental.

One | Two
Dominic frowned into the darkness and turned over, his irritation increasing.

A cursory glance at the clock on his nightstand told him that it was 2:34 in the morning, and he was nowhere close to being sleepy yet.  Two things were dominating his thoughts: Leo's words from earlier that night, and the irrefutable fact that Matthew Bellamy continued to prefer the company of gentlemen.

He almost wished that Leo had kept that little tidbit of information to himself, because now Dominic simply couldn't stop thinking about the fact that Matthew thought Dominic didn't like him.  It gave him the opportunity to choose to act, and Dominic had been wallowing in self-pity and fear for so long that he was pretty certain that he didn't even know how to act anymore.

No, it was much easier to keep to oneself and maintain the illusion that there wasn't any point in trying.  After all, if you keep telling yourself something for long enough, you start to believe it.  Actually knowing that Matthew might potentially reciprocate his advances, well, that just made things difficult; it threw the first stone at Dominic's carefully crafted glass sanctuary of denial.

Dominic actually pouted, crossing his arms angrily as he turned over again, onto his back this time.

"Shit," he said aloud as he kicked the sheets from his body.  "What the fuck do I do now?"

He could hear Leo's irritatingly gorgeous Irish lilt come to him suddenly, out of nowhere: "You grow a fucking pair of testicles, Dom." Dominic wasn't sure precisely when Leo's voice had taken over his conscience, but he smiled nonetheless, because Leo was right, and Dominic knew it.

It was an epiphany, albeit a cautious one.  It didn't mean he was ready, just yet.  But, it did mean that he was getting closer to that point.

He thought again of Matthew.  He wondered if he was awake, three doors down, or if he was sleeping peacefully.  Did Matthew sleep on his side, his stomach, or his back?  Did Matthew sleep in boxers, briefs, or did he sleep in absolutely nothing at all?

"Tight black briefs, I hope," Dominic whispered aloud.  Instantly, he covered his mouth with one hand, cringing.  He hadn't meant to say that out loud, but now that he had, he couldn't get the thought to fade from his brain.  Dominic wondered what it would be like to turn over and find such a gorgeous creature sharing your bed...

(a willing, gorgeous creature)

... one that wanted you more than anything, one that positively lived for the moment each morning that he got the chance to take you into his arms before you had to part for the day.

What kind of lover would Matthew be?  Dominic liked to think he'd be tender, that he would take his time - perhaps he would kiss Dominic into submission, with slow, deep, wet kisses that lasted for minutes at a time.  Perhaps he would hold one of Dominic's hands as he did this, his lips occasionally leaving Dominic's own to press a soft, sucking kiss to his neck.

Dominic glanced down his body, at the end result of what thinking about Matthew had done to him.  It certainly hadn't been part of his plan, but now that Dominic was  sporting an impressive erection, he had absolutely no intention of letting it go to waste.  He retrieved the bottle of lube from his nightstand and coated his hand liberally with it.

He cupped and lifted his balls, his lips parting in a heady sigh as he rolled them repeatedly with his moist fingers.  When he gripped the base of his dick, he groaned, wondering if Matthew could take him that deeply between his pretty, parted lips.

Dominic was just getting close to the good part when he heard a sound in the corridor outside his bedroom.  At first he chose to ignore it in favor of  a potentially fucking brilliant orgasm, but when he heard it again, there was no use - the moment was gone.  He sat up, abandoning his dick in favor of slugging into his leopard print silk robe to investigate.

Upon opening his door, he was stunned to see Matthew there, in the floor, sagged against the wall.  Dominic was alarmed to see that Matthew was looking paler than normal, and utterly, positively ill.

"Matthew?  What's wrong?" Dominic exclaimed, instantly concerned.  He also wondered if what he'd been doing showed somehow, like he were wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed HI I WAS JUST JERKING OFF WITH YOU ON MY MIND LOL.  He hastily covered his crotch with one hand, but luckily, his impromptu boner was dissipating.

"I'm so sorry to wake you," Matthew whispered, head in his hands, "but I was wondering if you have anything for a bitch of a headache?"

"Of course, let me help you up."

"No, no, this is humiliating enough."

Dominic bit his lip.  "Okay.  Don't move, I'll be right back."  He sprung into action, retrieving a bottle of pain reliever from his medicine cabinet, along with two washcloths.  Next he grabbed and a bottle of water and the ice bucket from his small refrigerator/freezer.  When he found Matthew, he was him attempting to stand on two wobbly legs, and failing.

"No, no, wait."  Dominic put the items in his hands on the floor and reached out, putting one arm around Matthew's bare back to support his weight.  He frowned again at the state of Matthew's skin, damp and clammy,   "Let's get you back to your bed, okay?"

"I'm really sorry.  I tried to get to one of the girls' rooms, but I just couldn't make it that far."

"Don't apologize, really.  I wasn't asleep.  No worries there."  Matthew's head fell onto Dominic's shoulder as they walked together, Dominic's steady steps guiding Matthew's weak ones.  "I think you might have a fever, Matthew."

"My stomach feels funny too, now."

Eventually, they managed it, and Matthew sat down on his bed, only to fall onto his side, as though the mere effort to sit up was too much.  Dominic ran to retrieve the items he'd left in the hall, and when he came back, Matthew was laying diagonally across his bed, one hand over his eyes, the other clutching his stomach.

"When did this start?" Dominic asked once he'd helped Matthew get the medicine down.  Matthew was now sitting up next to Dominic, holding an impromptu icepack to his head.  He might feel like hell, but Dominic couldn't help but find Matthew stunning all the same, even dressed in nothing but a pair of magenta boxers covered in, of all things, bananas.  He still made Dominic's pulse race uncontrollably.

"About ten or so.  Gwen and I hadn't been back from dinner very long."

"Where did you go to eat?"

"We had sushi at some new place downtown - or, we tried to."  Matthew's weak eyes widened as he glanced at Dominic.  "It had a weird taste, though, she thought so too.  We didn't finish it, instead we ended up going for tacos on the way home."

Somewhere in the back of Dominic's mind, a different kind of bell went off.  He mused aloud, "Questionable sushi, followed by tacos?  I wonder if-"

Before he could finish his thought, Matthew finished it for him when he leaned forward abruptly and vomited onto Dominic's robe-covered lap.


"...if maybe you have food poisoning?" Dominic finished with a grimace.

Matthew had fallen back onto the bed.  "Oh my god.  Oh my god.  Kill me now.  Oh my god I'm sorry, I-"

Whatever he was going to say was cut off by yet another wave of nausea, which this time was deposited over the side of the bed.  Dominic quickly stood and shrugged out of his soiled robe, wrapping up in one of the sheets from Matthew's bed.  He then sat down and held Matthew's forehead and rubbed his back as Matthew continued to empty his stomach.

A knock at the door heralded Morgan's arrival on the scene.  She was dressed in pajama bottoms and a t-shirt, looking nothing like the serious executive that Dominic was used to seeing.  "Oh, Matthew, not you too."

"Let me guess, Gwen?" Dominic asked, one hand continuing to rub soothing patterns on Matthew's back as he remained in a hunched position on the edge of the bed.

"Yeah, poor things.  Elena is with her.  Gwen insisted I come check on Matthew, but I see you've beaten me to the punch."  Despite the concern in her voice, her eyes positively twinkled as she glanced at Dominic with a quick grin.  "Where are your clothes, Dominic darling?"

"Morgan," Dominic hissed, "he came to my door, barely able to stand, hoping I had something he could take for his headache.  And, you're standing right next to my robe, he just got sick all over it."

"Oh," Morgan's face fell, "well, damn."

"Do you think they need to be taken to the hospital?"

Morgan sat next to Matthew, who had finally stopped vomiting, on the bed.  She smoothed the hair back from his forehead and gathered him into her arms, his head falling onto her shoulder.  "Hmm.  I don't think so - Gwen said once she hurled a couple of times she felt much much better, well, she still feels like shit, but not quite as bad.  What do you think, Matthew, do you need to see a doctor, my darling boy bunny?"

Matthew shook his head, his voice barely a whisper, his words chopped between his deep breaths.  "No. here...then I'll clean... mess up.  Embarrassing."

"Nope.  Don't be silly," Dominic stressed, "let me and Morgan help you into bed, and we'll take care of it."  They proceeded to do that very thing, Dominic propping Matthew up on two pillows as Morgan went in search of some cleaning materials.

Dominic took a moment to reflect on how funny life could be.  Just an hour ago he was fantasizing about putting Matthew into bed, and now it was happening... albeit, not quite as he'd imagined.  He pulled a sheet up and over Matthew until Matthew kicked it off, proclaiming that it was too hot. On an impulse, Dominic pressed his palm to Matthew's forehead, which was still slightly warm.  "You probably just lost the medicine I gave you earlier, do you think you can get some more down so it will help with the headache?"


"Head-ache," Dominic said slowly, pointing to his head.

"Beefcake?" Matthew mumbled, "No... thank you.  Maybe later."

Dominic shook his head with a quiet laugh.  Matthew sighed deeply, as though every ounce of energy he possessed was slipping away.  Matthew blinked, looking up at Dominic as though he'd just realized Dominic was there.  He sighed again.

"So pretty," Matthew mumbled again, "wish you were mine."

With that, Matthew slipped into slumber.

When he started snoring about a minute later, Dominic was still standing frozen in the same spot, his heart pounding, and his face aflame.  He glanced at the doorway for a beat, to ensure they were still alone, then turned back to Matthew.

"Maybe... maybe I could be," he whispered.

Hi there E! So kind of you to read and comment, I'm ashamed that it was nearly a year since the last update (dear LORD WHY) but I really do appreciate it! Glad you still like these boys!

That's so kind, thank you, I love attempting to be funny, but the problem there is that you never know if you've been successful at it until you put it out there. So that boosts my confidence a lot. Thank you! <3

Ahh so glad you updated cause it means the whole fic popped up on my flist and I got caught up! I LOVE this, your writing is fab and I can't wait to read more of it! But wow, already really in love with these two characters, and I'm also really admiring how well you created the supporting cast of characters and a totally believable setting. Maybe that seems like a weird thing to comment on but to a non-writer like me it's hella impressive!

Oh also- LOL at Matt's banana boxers. And "like he were wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed HI I WAS JUST JERKING OFF WITH YOU ON MY MIND LOL" made me actually laugh really hard xD Again, great job :)

OMG OMG OMG. I seriously froze on the spot too. Oh, I just hope that if Matt remembers what he said that he won't be embarrassed about it. And I hope Dom will do something with this knowledge.
Btw, I missed those guys. Thanks for bringing them back.

Oh god I had to laugh when I read this. Between the two of us we are making sure the two boys are well and truly emptying their stomachs. We are so cruel to our poor babies. I do love the boys in these roles. Keep the updates rolling in love. Looks like you have been a busy lady! xxx

Indeed, we have been a bit brutal to them lately, haven't we? Luckily, though, they have their significant others to take care of them properly haha!

Basically it seems that I engage in reading of old fics when I am studying. Well, I can cope with that because the test went well so it was worth it reading this :D

Wow, what a plot! I absolutely love it! It's fantastic that Dominic isn't the typical playboy man, I love that he's gay, virgin and shy <3 AND MATT AS A BUNBUN FUCK WHY I DIDN'T DREAM WITH THAT.

Aawww poor Matt here! :( But at least hopefully that confession will spin Dominic to action. At least a bit. Jesus, I would be happy with just a "I'm gay". Come on, Dom, you can do it!

Also, I am going to be deeply in love with Leo and the girls, I think <3
