Challenge #00974-B243: Entertaining Angels

Three for three!

(Prompt from CallMeGallifreya on Tumblr)

Mel thought it was a little weird that his boyfriend was moaning without him, and crept out of their shared bed to take a peek.

Cyrus was kneeling on the floor in their ensuite, but that was not what was disturbing. What was disturbing was the dazzlingly luminous and enormous wings that he was stretching and massaging.

The harness sprawled across the floor looked like an immensely cruel thing to wear.

Mel thought about trying to sneak it away. He'd get caught. Cyrus would be mad. They might even break up. No. Dishonesty was never Cyrus' thing. Best to tell the truth.

Mel carefully pushed the door open and murmured, "Need some help there, love?"

The wings flared up and collided with the walls and ceiling. Cyrus startled as if he wanted to fly away. Then he curled up on himself, twitching futilely for the harness.

"Please don't?" begged Mel. "I don't want you hurting yourself. You can be you around me. It's okay."

Cyrus' eyes were moist. "You've no idea how long I've waited to hear those words."

"Yeah, I'm guessing something like iridescent rainbow wings is a bigger thing to deal with than most other couples issues." Mel helped him stand up. Embraced him carefully, the way he liked it. "I want to learn everything there is to know about loving you properly. You deserve it."

"That makes twice the learning," giggled Cyrus into Mel's neck.

"Totally worth it."
