What: PG-13 for language
When: After Conrad talked to Gunter
Why: Because Conrad's a man of his word... and can't resist the gay either. I mean, Wolf's his brother.
Conrad swallowed and tugged the collar of his uniform. Time for the most awkward conversation with his brother ever. He knocked on the door.
Gwendal slipped his knitting into a drawer before calling out to Conrad. "Come in."
Conrad peered around the door. "Anuie, do you have a moment?"
Gwendal lifted an eyebrow at Conrad. He didn't call him Aniue often. "Yes, what do you need?"
He came in and sat in a chair by his brother's desk. "I just had a very interesting conversation with Lord von Christ."
Gwendal's eyebrow rose higher. So Gunter was walking around talking to people? Gwendal must have not have done Gunter enough last night if he was still able to move around. "Really?"
Conrad suppressed the grin. Yozak was really rubbing off on him. "Really."
"And..?" Gwendal leaned back in his chair, trying to figure out just what Gunter would talk to Conrad about.
Conrad just smiled, watching his brother squirm a little.
That made Gwendal's eyes narrow a bit. He didn't like that smile at the moment.
"Everything okay, Aniue?"
"Yes." Gwendal was becoming very wary.
"I mean, you've just been hiding in here and your room." He leaned on a hand. "Practicing becoming a hermit?"
"I don't see how that is any different from my usual activities."
"You at least stop by and see the baby."
Gwendal's eye twitched. Since Conrad married Yozak, and even some times before, Gwendal avoided that room like the plauge. He -really- didn't want to accidently hear or see anything that would make him want to beat them both with a blunt object. "I see him often."
Conrad frowned. "Aniue..." he whined like he used to do when he was little. "Yuki misses you."
"......." Gwendal's eyes narrowed. He knew the meaning for that voice. "What do you want?"
"I just want to talk to you," he replied innocently... enough. "It's been a while since we've really talked. You know, shared our hopes and dreams..."
Gwendal's eyes narrowed more. "What did Gunter tell you?"
Conrad sighed melodramatically. Yeah, Yozak was really rubbing off on him. "Well, we talked about Mother having more kids 'cause Wolf and I aren't going to be having kids the normal way..." he drawled.
Gwendal knew this game. He never had liked it. "Conrad. What did Gunter tell you?"
"That you've been fucking him through the flooring."
"........................" Gwendal lifted a hand up and coughed.
He grinned. "So when did this start back up?"
"I don't see how any of that is your buisness." Like hell Gwendal would talk about his sex life like that..... though he did have the colar of his jacket undone and a few hickies could be easily seen.
"Well, you see, Gunter asked me to talk to you about it, so your lover has made it my business."
"The only information about this that you're going to get will be from Gunter."
"Please, I don't want details, I just want to know if I'm going to be getting another brother-in-law sometime soon."
"I'm not going to answer that... and by the way, you just reminded me of Mother."
"Is that such a bad thing?"
"Yes. Yes it is."
He propped his elbows up on the desk. "Just answer one question and I'll drop the whole thing."
"... And what would that be?" Gwendal really wanted this conversation to be over.
"Do you love him?"
"That really isn't any of your business either." Gwendal just got to where he could admit it to Gunter, like hell he was going to go around telling everyone else. His blush kind of gave him away though.
"I want to hear you say it," he replied. "Or I'll get my husband to spy on you two."
"Your husband has much more important things to do." Gwendal was very weird about saying that he loved people. It took a lot for him to admit it to one of his brothers... and he obviously loved them so.. Conrad just wasn't going to get his way.
He watched Gwendal a little before smiling. "You should tell him," he said. "He's insecure."
"You don't know the situation." Because Gwendal had already told Gunter. He was glad Gunter didn't blab that to Conrad too.
Conrad stood. "True." He turned and walked towards the door but paused. "Oh, by the way, you should fasten your collar before Mother barges in."
Gwendal's eyes widened and he quickly moved a hand up to hold his collar closed. "............ I swear, Yozak corrupted you."
He grinned a little. "Maybe the corrpution goes both ways," he said before heading out the door.
