Beside the Rising Sun
They're giggling. He knows they're giggling, and he would be hard pressed
to explain it away if they were to be discovered. That's not likely, not
here, not now. But luck is never on his side, and he knows that simply
because they're giggling, *someone* shall walk in and rip the blankets away
and stare down at them. Demand to know what has possessed them, and
probably begin a purification ritual before he can stop laughing long
enough to halt them.
It isn't that Wesley minds giggling. It's just so utterly unlike him --
even less like Gunn -- that he knows he'd be mortified to be discovered.
That isn't enough to make him attempt to stop. He's not sure he could, if
he tried, because when he thought of trying once before, Gunn looked up at
him and grinned through his own giggles and set Wesley off again.
Wesley is sure that tomorrow they shall pretend this never
happened. They'll tell anyone who asks that they were having sex, and that
will discourage any further inquiries.
If it doesn't, they'll make something up.
He hears Gunn trying to breathe, and Wesley puts his hands on Gunn's sides,
feeling the smooth skin under his fingers expanding...expanding a bit

shriek. His hands are knocked away and suddenly Gunn is on top of him,
holding him down, and they're both giggling again too hard to continue the
Wesley's stomach muscles are beginning to hurt. He opens his own mouth to
draw in a deep breath, and feels Gunn's hands on him. He bats them away
before Gunn can retaliate, but doing so prevents him from ceasing laughing
long enough to breathe deep. He's panting, instead, giggling as hard as
He makes another half-hearted attempt to stop himself, and he catches sight
of Gunn's face, all crinkled up in his own silly laughter, and Wesley
cannot help himself. They'll have to breathe later. For now, he just
holds Gunn closer, and feels Gunn's body vibrating against his own. He
giggles, and feels Gunn giggling with him.
