Bosatsu's Gambit
by Rana Eros

Written for the Wishes for Kisses Mini-Fanworks Challenge. Veleda_k requested Kanzeon/Jiroushin, and I was in the mood to try a new brand of crack. Aided and abetted by Eliza, who's learning to be evil under my tutelage. Betaed by the mighty Karot, and there's a joke in there somewhere about betacarotene, but I'll spare you.

Se likes Jiroushin, se really does. He's served hir faithfully for...well, however long he's served hir. Time, like everything, is an illusion, and not a very interesting one, in hir opinion. In any case, Jiroushin is quite good at his job, and seems happy enough to serve, most of the time.

It's just, he really needs to learn to loosen up, almost as much as hir nephew. Hence hir suggestion that they spice up their chess game.

"Y-your pardon, Bosatsu?" Jiroushin stutters, eyes bulging and sweat springing up on his brow. "I fear I misheard you."

"No, you didn't," se drawls, fixing him with half-lidded eyes. "What's the matter? You don't find me attractive?"

Se knows that's not true. Everyone finds hir attractive; it comes with the job.

Jiroushin pales. "Bosatsu, of course you are the embodiment of beauty--"

"Good, then let's get started."

"It wouldn't be proper," Jiroushin persists doggedly. Kanzeon makes a rude noise.

"So what? It'll be entertaining. You don't want me getting bored, do you?"

Jiroushin closes his eyes like a man preparing to face his execution. Se'd pity him, except se doesn't do pity. Se does mercy. In hir own fashion, of course. Se waits for Jiroushin to open his eyes again and smiles. "Well?"

"As the Bosatsu wishes."

"Excellent." Se looks down at the board, and pretends to notice something for the first time. "Oh, looks like I owe you one already."

Jiroushin glances down and gulps. "Perhaps pawns shouldn't count?"

"Now you know every piece counts with me," se says gently, and leans across the board. Jiroushin, to his credit, doesn't flinch.

Se likes kissing men with facial hair; Jiroushin's tickles hir skin deliciously. Despite his objections, he kisses back admirably, mouth just firm enough.

No tongue, though. Se'll work on him.
