It was only their second night in Hong Kong when a knock came on the door of their suite, and Haruomi opened it to find two men in black suits and sunglasses. They drew back a little at the sight of Haruomi looming in the doorway, then straightened their ties and said in what was probably the firmest voices they could manage, “Liu-sama has requested the pleasure of your company, Aoe Kiichi-san.”

Kiichi raised an eyebrow, but silently picked up his coat and allowed Haruomi to help him into it as they descended from the top floor to the lobby. They were ushered into the car waiting out front, which drove off immediately; Haruomi memorised every street sign that they passed, while Kiichi rested his cheek against Haruomi’s shoulder and closed his eyes, the smooth purring of the car almost lulling him to sleep. After about twenty minutes, they stopped in front of another hotel, and the two suits escorted them up to the top floor again.

“Sir, your guests have arrived,” one of them announced with a short bow, and then they both left, closing the door behind them. Haruomi listened intently as he removed Kiichi’s coat, but didn’t hear the turn of the lock; that meant the man before them was armed.

Fei Long had been seated near the window, but stood up as soon as they walked in. Dressed in Armani like it had been designed for him and with the glittering skyline of Causeway Bay as a backdrop, he cut a stunning figure, and Kiichi was almost starry-eyed until Haruomi coughed into his hand and muttered, “Kiichi,” in a warning sort of tone.

Kiichi sent Haruomi a mischievous look from the corner of his eyes, but was distracted when Fei Long reached for his hand, which he offered; he was even more distracted when, instead of simply shaking it, Fei Long pressed a long, slow kiss to the back of it, before letting go.

“I am Liu Fei Long,” he said in perfect Japanese. “Aoe Kiichi-san.” He gestured to the chairs by the window and said, “Please, take a seat.”

So Kiichi did, while Haruomi remained standing behind him. Resting his elbow on one arm of the chair and his chin in his hand, Kiichi stared at Fei Long, though no longer with the least hint of stars in his eyes, and waited for him to speak.

“Would you like a drink?” Fei Long asked politely, and when Kiichi shook his head, he leaned back in his seat and crossed his legs. “Then perhaps we can get down to business.”

“Business?” Kiichi repeated, his eyebrows arching slightly. “Liu-san, I’m a doctor. If you’re wasting away from some mysterious disease, then perhaps I could help you. If you wish to discuss something of a more financial and less physical manner, then my brother is the one you should be speaking to.”

“Ah, but what if I wish to discuss something very much of a physical manner with you, Aoe-san?” Fei Long murmured, with a smile that didn’t quite reach his eyes.

“Then I’ll have to apologise, because I’m not available,” Kiichi said with a somewhat cool smile of his own, then added dryly, “I’m a very busy doctor.”

This made Fei Long laugh, sincerely this time; both Kiichi and Haruomi noted that Fei Long seemed much younger when he was genuinely amused, and not so reserved and weary as if he had the weight of the world on his shoulders. With a smile still lingering at the corners of his lips, Fei Long finally said, “I understand that your brother is in charge of the family business, Aoe-san, but at the present moment I am unable to leave Hong Kong. Your presence here is fortunate, therefore, as I wish to convey my regards to him and my earnest desire to strengthen the ties between us.”

Kiichi studied him for a moment, then said mildly, “I hear that there’s no love lost between you and Asami Ryuichi.”

“Ah,” Fei Long said, all traces of the smile disappearing and a touch of ice coming into his voice, “Your hearing is very acute.”

“So I’ve been told,” Kiichi said, and slanted a look up at Haruomi, standing as motionless as a statue behind him; Haruomi’s face was as expressionless as a statue too, but Kiichi didn’t need facial expressions to read him. He returned his gaze to Fei Long, and said politely, “I would be happy to forward your message to my brother.”

Fei Long inclined his head, and answered in an equally polite tone, “I am most appreciative.”

They stood up, and this time Kiichi wasn’t surprised by the kiss on the back of his hand; he was almost charmed by it, in fact, and this probably wasn’t lost on Haruomi, who quickly bundled him into his coat and led him to the door. They were already halfway across the room when Fei Long suddenly added, “The next time that I am in Japan, I would like very much to meet with you, Aoe-san.”

“I would like that too,” Kiichi replied in perfect Cantonese, glancing back briefly. Before he could say anything more, though, Haruomi practically dragged him from the room, and he had to hide his smile in Haruomi’s sleeve on the elevator ride down. He fell asleep in the car with his cheek against Haruomi’s shoulder, while Haruomi held him and counted the street signs.

(I'd link you to this thread, then ask you WHAT WAS THE POINT, THEN?)

Kiichi - Fei Long
I personally see Fei Long as an uke, but I like your story! I love to see Kiichi flirting with him. That's why XD

Re: Kiichi - Fei Long
D'you mean Fei Long as uke to Kiichi? o_o I see Fei Long as more reversible (since he topped Takaba that time), and Kiichi as only uke (though topping from the bottom, figuratively speaking). If that makes any sense at all.

Re: Kiichi - Fei Long
well, when kiichi and fei are together i personally want to see them both reversible. just wrote an AU fic titled peony and sakura with kiichi-fei pairing in love mode community. if you read it you'll understand my twisted mind better ^ ^"

i agree that kiichi is very uke most of the time, but his boldness - to me - can make him a reversible yet intimidating seme too. on the other hand, in vf i always see fei as an uke no matter what he did to takaba. fei reminds me of kai sagano in kizuna, where at first was a seme to ranmaru when he benchpressed him but turned out as an absolute uke to masa in the end. i personally see fei as someone who's still emotionally turbulent and delicate. behind that anger he probably needs someone to protect/understand him. thus to me he'll make an unconvincing seme.

but that's just my opinion. i believe most of LM and VF fans will agree with you though. after all i don't really mind who's uke or seme, cause i'm a reversi freak. both kiichi and fei are my favourite. so as long as they're together, i'm happy ^ ^

Re: Kiichi - Fei Long
I'm not a big fan of Fei Long, so I've never really thought too much about him. ^^; I can see where you're coming from, though.

he probably needs someone to protect/understand him <- I would think that this also applies to Kiichi?

Re: Kiichi - Fei Long
of course, that's applicable to kiichi as well, considering everything he has gone through. haruomi makes a fine life companion for him and they complement each other. love the couple ^ ^

I love how Kiichi keeps baiting Haruomi, and fei long and kiichi's conversation is love on its own *grins*
Feb. 27th, 2006 06:23 pm (UTC)
Kiichi is all sorts of fun. XD

I'm pretty much an OTP person and don't want to read Kiichi with anyone other than Haruomi :D. But this was interesting. I see Kiichi as flirting with people partly because he loves to tease Haroumi, and this was pretty evident here. Liked the fact that Kiichi pretty much anticipated Haruomi's reactions.
Feb. 28th, 2006 09:45 am (UTC)
Well. I don't see this as Kiichi/Fei Long (or vice versa)? To me, this is very much HaruKii with Fei Long as just another character. But I'm glad you like it anyway. =D
