Neji finished squeezeing himself into the leather pants...that he had discovered he had outgrown somewhat. They now fit him like a second skin. Hearing a knock on the door just as he was about to zip them he paused. Itachi His mind supplied. It had to be. Heart beating too fast he walked to the door and opened it.
Itachi froze, looking him up and down and licking his lips as he stepped in, one hand going to Neji's hip. "I like these on you," he said. He was wearing black jeans and a tight, clinging long-sleeved black shirt, black shoes to finish it off. Stepping out of said shoes, he set his bag down next to them, and wrapped an arm around Neji's waist.
Neji's cheeks pinked slightly and he leaned against Itachi after giving him a quick lookover. " You look good too..." he said, mouth suddenly dry.
Itachi looked him over again, gaze slightly hungry. "You should go finish getting ready," he said. "We can go get something to eat before heading to the club."
Neji met Itachi's eyes and he shivered " Hai... could you help me..." He looked down "I'm not sure what to do..." he pushed his head behind his ear then registered what Itachi had said " Wait...dinner?"
"Yes. I will be taking you out to dinner as well. Dancing on an empty stomach is inadvisable." Itachi nudged him. "Get dressed first. I will help you."
Neji nodded and turned,still pressed so close to Itachi that his leather clad ass brushed the mans crotch then he stepped forward "Won't we look...odd going to dinner dressed like this?"
Itachi forced himself to calm down and followed Neji into the bedroom. "Not if we go to the right places."
"Ah..." Neji said and bent to pick up a bag,setting it on the bed as he zipped and buttoned the pants. He tugged out a fishnet shirt that came off shoulder but would cover him from wrist to shoulder and shoulder to the waist of his pants "This ok?"
Itachi studied him for a moment, then fished a pocketknife out of his pants and flicked it open. "Hold very still," he said, holding the fishnet out from Neji's body and delicately cutting it, letting it relax and eyeing it, then continuing his cut all the way around. When he was done, he cut it downward so he could pull it off Neji. The fishnet now bared his stomach, and pocketing the knife again, Itachi ran a hand over it. "There."
Neji froze as Itachi cut the fabric from his body,not moving as Itachi had said. He trusted Itachi not to cut him...unless he wanted to. He shivered as the mans warm hand ran over his stomach. "What else should I wear?" he said,gesturing to the bag.
Itachi tilted his head. "Take it out and let's see. I would be fine with just this, but if there is anything else we should take a look at it."
Itachi shook his head. "That would be ignoble." His eyes grew cold, dark. "Family can be a burden."
Neji nodded " Yes...sometimes I wish they would all just vanish..." His eyes darkened slightly.
Itachi was silent. He wondered if Neji knew about his role in the Uchiha massacre...or if he did not, what he would think of Itachi when he found out. It would have to come out sometime. "Why psychiatry?" he asked, to break the awkward silence.
Neji looked at Itachi,eyes oddly canny. "Partially what I told you...and partially because it interests me"
Itachi watched those eyes impassively. He was the master at hiding what he was thinking, and Neji's eyes didn't scare him as they scared others. "That is important. I would imagine pursuing the study of matters relating to the mind would be exhaustive."
"Yes it would be, but I like to be challenged...as I am not in school" He raised an eyebrow " There is so much to learn"
Relaxing more, Itachi nodded. "You are correct. There is always something unknown."
Neji looked up as their food came and he studied Itachi's face. "You're beautiful" he whispered then clapped a hand over his mouth realising hed said it aloud.
Itachi's eyebrows shot up. "I'm glad you think so," he said with a hint of amusement in his voice. "It is good to be acknowledged."
Neji shook his head "Sorry...It just popped out"
Itachi shrugged, a smile twitching at his lips. "No apology is necessary." He began eating, savoring the spicy Thai food. "You are attractive as well."
Opening his mouth to argue that last point,he thought better of it.Neji looked down and ate his food daintily. It was good and hot just the way he liked it.
After a few minutes, Itachi looked up. "Do you like it?" he asked, taking a sip of his drink.
