He's Mine

Lynus tried his hardest to concentrate on making a new kind of drink for Cass at his bar. Cass wanted him to make something that could offer his patrons herbal benefits because, you know, he cared for the explorers of Lagaard.

He also wanted them to spend more money at his bar.

But as hard as he tried, Lynus could not fully concentrate at the task at hand. The bar was full, not to capacity, but full enough. New and old explorers were milling about, talking and arguing amongst themselves. You know, the usual.

However, there was one newcomer that was really pushing it.

An unknown female Protector, with blue eyes and short, fluffy pink hair, was trying so desperately to speak with Axel. She was chatting, seemingly mindlessly. What was worse, though, was that every now and again she would reach across the table to trail a finger, far too flirty, over Axel's arm.

Her audacity was causing Lynus to feel a strong and somewhat uncharacteristic sense of jealousy. The way she was twirling a strand of her hair, trying to edge closer and closer to Axel, looking at him with lusty eyes. It made him physically bristle.

Thankfully, Axel wasn't even remotely interested. He was completely concentrating on the pieces of paper and maps strewn out on the table in front of him. He didn't even bother to feign interest to be polite. He was ignoring her.

Blatantly.

Axel shifted in his seat, his leg stretching out to touch the pink-haired Protector's chair. He then straightened his leg, abruptly and rather harshly pushing her away from him, the chair scraping loudly across the floor. The entire time, he never lifted his gaze from the map he was reading.

The female protector nearly fell from her seat from the force. She looked surprised at first, but her face soon created into a look of frustration and disbelief. She also looked annoyed and angry. It was as if she couldn't understand why Axel wasn't engaging in conversation with her.

Lynus had to admit, though, he was starting to feel rather…irritated himself. That protector was starting to get on his nerves.

Couldn't she see that he wasn't interested?

Lynus abruptly dropped his equipment onto the bar, his hands curling into fists when that female protector defiantly pulled her chair back over to Axel. She simply was not getting the point. Axel didn't want to talk with her, let alone flirt with her!

Enough.

Pushing away from the bar, Lynus ignored everyone around him as he made a beeline toward Axel. As he drew closer, his red-haired landsknecht finally looked up from his maps to look at Lynus, his relief in seeing him mixing with annoyance at the young woman who was trying to get his attention.

Without uttering a noise, Lynus reached forward to remove the maps that Axel was holding his hands. Axel looked mildly surprised, but made no attempt to take them back. Instead he raised an eyebrow when Lynus dropped them carelessly onto the table.

Lynus then did something rather outrageous. He plonked himself onto Axel's lap, wrapped his arms around his neck – and kissed him on the lips!

The bar suddenly fell into a thick, dense silence.

Although surprised at first, Axel soon gathered himself and immediately wrapped his arms around Lynus tightly, kissing him back in an equally possessive manner.

"What the hell?!" the Protector shrilled as she leapt to her feet, jumping backwards in disgust.

Pulling his lips away from Axel's, Lynus peered at her from the corner of his eye as he kept his arms around Axel's neck, Axel keeping his arms around him in turn. Neither of them made an attempt to move. Most certainly not to remove themselves from each other's embrace.

Uncaring that he was acting rather childish and uncharacteristic; Lynus stuck his tongue out at her. "He's mine."

Axel chuckled, greatly amused, as he nuzzled his nose against Lynus' throat. He had a smirk on his lips, giving the young woman a smug look. He didn't say a thing. He didn't need to.

The pink-haired Protector spluttered incoherently before she spun around, pointing in the direction of a blonde-haired Dark Hunter. "You lied to me!" she accused. "You said he was single!"

The busty Dark Hunter simply laughed. "Now now, sweetie," she crooned sensually as she wagged a finger at the disgruntled protector. "You asked me if he had a wife or girlfriend, and I said no. That's because he doesn't. You should have asked me if he was single."

The young female Protector opened and closed her mouth wordlessly for a few moments, before snapping her mouth shut and quickly storming from the bar.

"Just like when it comes to the maps of the Labyrinth," the female Dark Hunter said as she folded her hands under her chin and winked. "You really need to be precise with these kind of things."
