hey all, here's chapter one of a new story. I expect the rest of it will be finished in a day or two:) Not quite sure of the warnings yet, but there is torture. But there's banter, too, so...?
It's complete now, and too long for one LJ post.
Read it at a03 (warnings are in the tags)
This is for my bestest, C.

{C}Chapter 1
Heyes got broody over certain things. Curry had seen it a hundred times. His partner's quick-thinking brain, which often got them out of tricky situations, also had the unfortunate tendency to twist things into shapes they were never meant to take.
And the two of them sleeping together was one of those certain things.
Yep, he knew just how Hannibal figured it—Curry trusted his judgment, and in repayment he'd corrupted the Kid into committing unnatural acts.
Curry snorted air out of his nose. The horse beneath him plodded on, unmindful. Heyes' horse was just ahead, and in front of Heyes the hay-colored hills stretched on, studded with clumps of dry grasses and stunted trees.
Curry grinned at Heyes' retreating back, swaying as his horse picked out a trail in between the rocks. Nothing about what they'd done last night or the night before—or the week before, the first time—ever felt the least bit unnatural. New, but not unnatural. And sure, he wasn't stupid, knew the rest of the world disagreed, and maybe in the past he'd have agreed with them. But the rest of the world offered no comfort. Heyes did. Always had, one way or another. Curry trusted that above all else.
Leather creaked as Heyes turned in his saddle, catching the grin on Curry's face. His eyebrows rose. "What's so funny?"
"Now how did you do that?" Curry asked.
Heyes shrugged, face gleaming with sweat—the day was blistering hot. He wore his dark blue shirt, sleeves rolled back. "Do what? Turn around and catch you grinning at me? I must have felt the heat of it on my back."
Curry gave him an exasperated look. "All I had to do was think about you and me, and there you go, turning right around as if I spoke to you."
"What were you thinking?" Heyes asked, not so casually.
"Heyes, you worry too much. Wasn't anything bad." He paused, considering. "Though I suppose that depends on who you ask. There's a few ladies I could think of—or preachers, maybe—they might not think on it kindly."
Heyes' horse stumbled, and he turned away from Curry to pat it on the neck. Dust from the horse's hide rose in a puff.
Avoiding me. "What I was thinking about was kind of…good. Real good in fact."
Heyes turned his upper body around, hand on his horse's rump behind the saddle, and rolled his eyes.
Inwardly, Curry laughed. Kind of fun needling Heyes with things they'd done after dark.
"Well if you're gonna moon over you and me, guess it might as well be," Heyes said, short and disgruntled.
"Be what?"
Heyes frowned.
"Oh, yeah. Good. Of course. Well, I'm not mooning, Heyes. Just thinking, that's all."
"Mooning." This time Heyes didn't look back.
"You think I'd moon over you?" Kid scoffed.
"Well, I don't like to blow my own horn, so to speak—"
"—but I can't imagine you'd be the first."
There it was—that sly glimmer Kid had waited for. "Oh, you couldn't, could you?" Curry suppressed a smile and shrugged. "I was just thinking, not mooning. You know, how your toes curl when you—"
"Kid!" Heyes shot up fast and straight in his saddle.
"—wake up and stretch first thing in the morning." Kid laughed. Nothing was going to ruin his good humor today, not even Heyes' misguided sense of guilt.

You'd better finish this mighty darned quick, missy! I'll wait, sort of patient- like.

I love how this started out with Curry's thoughts the morning after the night before, and the whole conversation about 'mooning'. And then how everything went so belly-up :) Always wondered if there was someone attached to Danny Bilson who might want revenge. Brilliant opener, looking forward to more!!
