Chapter Six
"Corey."
"I'm here," Corey replied. They lay together on the floor, August's head on Corey's shoulder, Corey's arms around him, holding him tight. "I love you."
"I'm frightened. I don't want you to be here too. I want you to be safe. I was happy thinking about you being happy. Why is this happening?"
Corey tightened his hold for a moment, gentle though, aware that August was bruised and tender. "There is a purpose for everything. I couldn't be happy without you. I'd trade a hundred years without you for just this moment, if I had to chose. People are looking for us. They are going to find us."
"I can't tell time. How long  have I been gone?"
"This is the second day. Do you trust me?"
"I trust you," August said, a once strong hand trembling as he laced his fingers through Corey's. "I trust you. Tell me what's real."
"You are a strong and powerful man who does good things. You bring law to the people who need it. You're beautiful and clean. Nothing they can do to you will ever take that away. I love you more than life, August Richards. You are a free man with a strong soul."
"I killed a woman," August whispered.
"Your regret is enough penance. You are forgiven, August. Auggie?"
"Um?" August turned a little, trying to hide his erection, eyes red, dark hair tangled and scruffy. "Corey?"
"You're not mad at me? You understand that I needed to be with you?"
Only when he touched Corey's freckled cheek did he realize his fingers were scraped, scabbed. "I understand. Why do people do evil like this?"
"Pain and fear overwhelms people sometimes and they forget their relationship to life and God. We will get through this."
"Will you marry me?"
"Yes," Corey promised. He moved his hand so his palm was against August's palm.  "I give myself freely to you in marriage. August Richards V do you freely give yourself to me in marriage?"
"Yes," August said, a bit of life coming back into his eyes. 
"I will honor you as my husband for the rest of my life. Will you so honor me?"
"Yes," he said, with more energy. 
"If God allows us to have the care of children, will you accept the responsibility with me?"
"How many children are we talking about?"
"Answer the question. I don't know how many children God might give us the responsibility for."
"Yes, I'll raise children with you Corey Anderson."
"Since it is our intention to enter into this marriage, join your hand with mine and declare  your consent before God and his Church."
"Isn't that going to get us into deeper shit? Pissing your God off?"
"God would not have given me my love for you if it wasn't his will. I declare before God and his Church that it is my intention to marry you August Richards V, for all my life."
"I declare too."
"I, Corey Anderson, take you, August Richards V, to be my lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."
"Aren't you a priest?"
"I stopped being a priest yesterday. I was going to tell you, but I had to wait until I was officially free. Then you were missing. I am free to marry you."
"I, August Richards V, take you, Corey Anderson, to be my lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."
"What God has joined, men must not divide. You can give me a ring when we get out of here. It better not be too expensive."
August grabbed Corey to him, holding him desperately tight. "I'll get you a plastic one, if that makes you happy. Corey, are we really married, really?"
"We're married," Corey promised, soothing August's hair. "Bon wanted to pay a ransom, you know. He and Roman were both desperate to have you home."
August shuddered, as if deep lightless tension released it's hold on him. "We're gonna get out of this."
Corey shifted up onto one elbow. "Yes. We are." He ran his hand over August's hip, down to caress his now soft penis. "And we'll have a honeymoon, on our own terms. You can spend as much money as you want on it."
Rough torn fingers caressed over Corey's face, brushing golden red eyebrows, scattered pale freckles and then August's hand disappeared into slightly too long red hair and he kissed his husband, deep and searching. Under the taste of forced plastic, the after taste of drugs and nausea, there was Corey and August, familiar, home, and warm, the shape and textures of love that won't bend to any thing.

“Are you lost,” he asked, voice amused, deep and as comfortable being in the shadow. Panting, the red silk of her gown moved against the curve of smooth breast, The same gown hugged her waist, slowed down behind her almost like a wedding train, but in the brightest red. Violet eyes stared up at him, trying to decide if he were a friend. The question was hard to answer. “I....” He leaned a little, his smile confident, engaged. Dark eyes seemed to swallow her whole as if she were a sugar cube melting in his champagne. “Well, what is it, my pretty cardinal?” Almost as if compelled, as if tell him the truth were her most sweetest desire, she admitted, “I came in with the offering girls because I’m looking for my brother. I think the king is holding him because he’s a journalist and an activist for democracy.” Both her hands covered her mouth, those violet eyes wide with shock. “You think the king keeps political prisoners,” he said, on ha…

“You’re right. There is definitely something there,” Hilde said. On the bridge of their little salvage craft, she touched the data display, the 3d image of the ice shelf they were exploring.
They were, technically, getting paid to disperse oceanographic sensors for the University of Tokyo. Doing a little salvage on the side was just a perk.
“What’cha think it is?” Duo asked, pulling his wet suit up over his shoulders. His hair was growing out again and was down past his shoulders if it wasn’t in a ponytail. Silver touched his temples, metallic and shimmery. Anti-aging technology kept him in peak condition, looking early twenties, at oldest. Anticipating his swim, the gills on the side of his throat opened, tingling pleasantly.
“Early plane, like fuck,” Hilde said. While she had always had a couple years on him, it didn’t show at all. Her hair was flame red curls now. One eye was completely artificial, thoug…

As a side note, my blog now has all 13 chapters of Dark Wolf in one post. http://www.faithinthemoon.com/2017/11/dark-wolf-1-13.html


The current ‘safe house’ had been a shipping container at some point in its life. Now buried under a landfill like a hobbit hole with door that used to be a refrigerator it had made a fine home for several months. Power came from solar collectors as well as thermal from sensors sunk deep into the raging pile of trash. The floor was a mosaic of broken glass grouted with some strange gunk that Quatre had mixed up, which made it smooth and pebbly.
The table had the top of a boxy car from way before any of them were born, cut off and mounted in the floor so that it looked like the had just sunk into the floor. Duo and Quatre had been drunk when the table got made. It still generated snickers.
They had a washing machine made out of a large spent artillery casing and an engine from something that had…
