Most days, Marina had been doing magic with Percy in the evenings. (Some days they didn't do much in the way of magic, ending up with a few beers and tv instead. Hanging out at Percy's place was more fan than hanging out at her own without anyone there. If Percy was sick of her presence, he'd not yet made any mention of it.)

But late tonight they were at the theatre, Marina walking slowly around the filled tank of water, a sense of excitement building inside of her. This was her first time attempting it under water. She could undo the ropes, she could escape the bonds, but she'd not yet done it with the threat of drowning. It was new. It was terrifying. It was pretty amazing.

She turned over her shoulder and grinned at Percy. When they did this in a show she'd dress the part - the corset, the heels, the waterproof makeup. But tonight was practise and they needed to start slow, so she had taken off her shoes and striped down out of her clothes, leaving only her black tank top and matching boyshorts. She tied her hair up now into a tight bun and asked, "you ready?"

Percy had grown up around illusionists and watching someone go into the tank the first time wasn't exactly a new experience, so he wasn't entirely sure why he was so goddamn nervous. Sure he was going to watch every second and they had worked out a hand signal for Marina to make if she was stuck and unable to get out, but his heart still felt like it was stuck in his throat.

Two years ago he had watched his brother very nearly die doing exactly this.

"I'm ready," he said, never betraying his nerves to Marina. Like she needed something else to distract her! "You remember how to slip the lock and then reach for the tank hinge?"

Percy chuckled, glad that she was enjoying herself. She really was made for this, which probably shouldn't surprise him as much as it did. She had dated his daredevil brother, after all.

"Okay, just don't forget the hand signal," he said, watching her crest the podium. He followed her up so he could tie her hands with the knot he had meticulously taught her to slip. Once done, he moved away so he could close the tank, though he wasn't planning on locking it this first time.

The entire time Marina was submerged, Percy had been counting away the seconds. At thirty he was going to lift the lid himself even if she didn't want him too. To his relief, however, it wasn't necessary and she gasped for air before he reached 26.

He reached out to help her hold the lid up, in case she needed to just cling to the side for a moment. "Alright," he asked her, cautiously.

"I fucking did!" he said, now able to match her excitement since he wasn't watching her flail about underwater and counting the seconds until it could be considered drowning. "You were amazing. You're a natural," he said, reaching out to rub her arms in case she was cold. The theater was large and she was soaking wet.

Percy had not expected to be kissing his very sodden friend, but now that it was happening, he wasn't about to complain. Instead he wrapped his arms around her, holding her close as he curved his own body against hers.

It had been a lot longer between kisses for Percy, which was possibly why he hadn't taken a second to think about what was happening right now. Should he really be kissing his best and only friend? And feeling her up? Because the second Marina moaned into his mouth, his hands slipped under her wet shirt and up against her back.

A growl escaped Percy's lips and he was fairly sure he was about to fall over. The tank was close by, however, so he moved them both towards it. Once there, he lifted her around his waist, propping her against the tank before kissing her deeply.

Oh this was very good, or at least that's what his body was telling him. He moved to bite and kiss at her neck as he gave her arse a not-so-gentle squeeze.

Aaand there it was. Percy pulled away, panting hard as he tried to regain his breath and wits. "Shit," he breathed, shaking his head. "I don't. Shit." There was probably one in Giles' dressing room, but like hell he was going to mention his brother's name right now.

Percy was about to tell her they probably shouldn't do this, but then her mouth was on him and the only sound he could make was a moan of pleasure.

Date: 2014-10-10 11:46 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Percy felt like his knees were going to fail him, but in the best way. "Hmmmmnnggg," he managed to purr at her while he tried to gather his wits back together again. God it had been a long time since anyone had done that with him, and he had loved every second of it.

Grinning down at her widely he said, "your turn?"

Percy zipped his trousers back up before he going to his knees as well and crawling towards her. Once above her he leaned down to trap her lips in another kiss, his hands roaming downwards to push her underwear out of the way.

Percy's fingers slipped inside her and he set a slow pace, before moving to kiss down her neck to her shoulder. Finally he replaced his fingers with his tongue, his hands moving to her hips to keep her pulled close to him.
