Teacher/Student Is One Thing...

Post by Axton on Sat Jun 18, 2016 11:48 pm

Ludger wanted to be just like his brother in every possible way. He truly looked up to and admired him. That's why he decided to follow in his footsteps and become a science teacher just like him, and how he had ended up as his students teacher. Although it was frowned upon, there wasn't anything explicitly wrong with relatives having student teachers who were related to them and Ludger had begged for them to let him be Julius' teachers assistant.

But, as it turned out, that had been a gigantic mistake, because every time Julius taught Ludger’s brain immediately shut down and all he could focus on was how beautiful his brother looked. Eyes sparkling, completely into the subject at hand and animated. It was torture to watch him like this day in and day out and have no way of acting on such feelings.

He had tried, once, when he was sixteen. Julius had, in much softer terms, told him that it wasn't acceptable for him to act on such feelings, and he hadn't ever tried again even though they had never really gone away. In fact, they had pretty much only gotten stronger with age. Four years later and he was likely to burst from holding it in for so long. But Julius had insisted and he didn't want to further disappoint him, so he went about his life as if he weren't painfully head over heels in love with his brother.

It was becoming harder and harder to keep his feelings hidden, as it were, when he spent so much time around Julius everyday. In class and at home, he was barely ever away from him.

That was precisely why Ludger was leaning over his desk and practically drooling over him when his phone vibrated and reminded him that it was time to be grading papers and not staring love struck at his brother time. It was just Nova pestering him about when Julius was free, probably for a date, so he snapped his phone shut irritably and put it away.

"Brother," he says, somewhat tentative to pull him from his work but the question was bothering him now that he'd thought about it. "Are you interested in Nova? You know, that friend of mine from school?" He hoped the obvious jealousy he felt didn't color the tone of his words.

He's not a fool. Not by any means. But he's trying very hard to ignore how Ludger looks at him, because after all those years his feelings only grew. As did Julius's own, but that was something he could never admit. It would be disgusting of him. He is around his brother far too often, far too publicly for that to be something he could allow himself, and so he stifles it.

However much he might stifle it, though, it's never enough to allow himself to really connect with other people in a romantic way, let alone sexually. Certainly he'd had one-night stands, and relationships lasting a week at most, but for the most part, nothing. It took a lot for him to take his thoughts off of Ludger. He hated himself for it, but he knew it was true. And besides, as long as he stifled it and never acted upon it, it would cause Ludger no harm.

He's barely paying attention to his own work when Ludger gets his attention, anyways, so he looks up, brow furrowed.

"...Nova. Nova..." He repeats, thinking hard on it. The spunky bank teller girl who followed Ludger around always asking for him, yes. "Ah, Nova. No. Not really. Why?"

Ludger knows he looks far too pleased by that answer so he looks away.

"Oh, no reason," he says quietly, smugly even. "She just wanted to know if she had a chance, is all."

Ludger was far too pleased that she would never get his brother's attention. She had already rejected him, but he had barely been interested in her anyway. She was supposed to be a distraction, to see if Julius really occupied his every waking thought. In the end, it had only served to send him right back into his brother's arms.

Julius almost manages to not smirk at how satisfied Ludger looks. Almost. But it's clear. He tries to refocus himself on the papers.

"Well. Seeing as I know next to nothing about her, besides her name, I would highly doubt she does." He remarks. "I tend to be interested in people I know." He teases.

Ludger knows exactly what Julius means but he decides to interpret it as I'm the person Julius knows best which clearly means he's interested in me . But then someone else comes to mind and he feels his face scrunch up in disgust. Rideaux. He was never quite sure what Julius saw in that man but it must be something because he kept him around, for whatever reason.

He tries not to look bothered by it but ultimately he is and so he says, "...are you interested in anyone right now?"

He lifts a brow. He could play this in three ways: one, completely deny having any feelings for anyone and end the conversation completely; two, pretend he actually had feelings other than pity for Rideaux to tease Ludger into jealousy; or three, be evasive but admit he has feelings for someone. He isn't sure which is crueler. He could also turn it around on him, he thinks.

"What about you?" He remarks, pushing up his glasses. "You haven't exactly been having luck lately either."

Ah. Ludger frowned, having not expected for this conversation to go this way. It wasn't fair; he didn't care about anyone else but Julius but there was no way in hell he was going to ever admit that so openly again. One embarassing, awkward confession was enough for five lifetimes.

"Well," he says, still frowning. "...there's no one," he lies quietly, unable to bring himself to even admit to there being someone. Julius would immediately put two and two together and the last thing he needed was another lecture.

"A shame. I'm not particularly interested in anyone either." He says, flatly, trying his damnedest to just end the topic there. He's fully aware of Ludger's lie, but that's not something he's willing to point out. "You should sit down. There's still quite a bit to do, I've made the terrible mistake of making myself do more work and given out homework every day this week."

It was both a relief and not to hear that. On one hand, Ludger wouldn't have to scare away any more potential suitors for some time, and besides Rideaux did scare him more than most (not that that would stop him if it came down to it). On the other hand, Julius very clearly didn't reciprocate his feelings and it stung a bit to think about it.

Ludger sighed loudly and practically sinks into his chair. He looks over the papers, barely interested in even reading them over. He finds himself taking longer and longer glances over at Julius instead of focusing on grading like he should be. He can't help it, he's cute even when, or maybe especially when he's grading papers. Concentrating so hard...unlike himself, who had the focus of a goldfish.

Julius is quiet, for a time, but then speaks up after one long spell of it.

"If you're worried about Rideaux in particular, I have less than pleasant feelings for him. So don't be." He knows just how much Ludger hates him, and frankly, if Rideaux didn't have ridiculous amounts of blackmail on him, he would have dropped him years ago. But since he rather likes his position here, he puts up with it. Somehow. "I'd sooner choke than even think of him that way." He smirks a little.

Ludger practically grins despite his best attempts to not look completely pleased.

"Good," is all he says because he's sure he's made it evidently clear how he feels about Rideaux by now. He really wouldn't hesitate to do unspeakable things to Rideaux in particular...

He sighs slightly, the thought tempting despite the fact that Rideaux hadn't even done anything this time.

"Why are you still friends with him?" He's asked a thousand times but he still doesn't understand it.

"He knows too much." He paints on a joking smile. "Can't just have someone who knows what I was like in high school walking around unchecked." Half a lie, half a truth. As if he'd actually gone to classes. No, it was a GED and college for him. And some assassination work.

Ludger clicked his tongue in thought, primarily thinking that he would be willing to deal with Rideaux if it meant learning more about what Julius was like in high school...but then again, maybe if he batted his eyelashes a little bit he could pry something from Julius for once.

"And exactly what were you like?" He says, doing just that.

"Quiet. Nervous." Another lie. "Nervous enough it was embarrassing, that's for certain." His eyelashes are long, too long. They're beautiful, just like him, but he can't let himself reveal too much. Ludger doesn't need to know any of it.

Ludger smiles and thinks that a Julius like that sounds far too cute. Not that he didn't absolutely adore this Julius with every fiber of his being, but being able to tease a Julius who was more susceptible sounded like far to much fun.

"That's not so bad," Ludger says honestly, "I was...a wreck in high school."

"Nobody likes who they were in high school." He responds, sympathetically. It's not incorrect; he'd never hated a part of his life more than his teen years. It was only around 21 he'd gotten the okay to live with Ludger. That had changed him, for the better, he hopes.

Rideaux was the only person left from then.

"Yeah.." Ludger says, laying his had on he desk. He had never really thought about it but high school was likely made worse because it had been around that time when he'd realized his feelings and it had consumed his life for the next few years, as it still was. He looked up at Julius and even from this angle he looked like an angel. He sighed and buried his head in his arms. He was doomed. He'd never get over this stupid crush.

He watches his brother flop over and seemingly give up, and sighs, patting his back as reassuringly as he can manage.

"If you get some work done, I'll buy you lunch. Deal?" He offers, catching his eyes as he says it.

Ludger looks up at him expectantly.

"Really?" He asks and before Julius can respond he's already looking through his respective stack of homework to grade.

"Really." And he's off. Ah, the prospect of free food always seems to motivate him. It's awfully cute. It's one of many things that makes him love Ludger. He chuckles to himself and carries on with his own grading.

--

"So." Julius says, breaking the silence as he packs away the papers. "Decide where you want food?" He looks expectantly to Ludger, smile on his lips.

"Yes..." he says and he smiles at him as innocently as he can. "Primavera." It's his and Julius' absolute favorite restaurant and he always takes Julius there whenever he wants something from him. Although this time he just wanted Italian food.

He can't resist a grin, and tousles Ludger's hair.

"I thought you'd say that. Get your stuff together, we'll head out when you're done." He knows it's horrible to want it, but he's grateful to get more time with him. Even if their time together is nearly constant, it never really feels like enough.

Ludger is over over eager and is less than careful as he shoves things into his bag. Once he's packed what he needs he walks to Julius and is reminded just how much taller he is.

He drapes an arm over his shoulders with a chuckle. "Still the perfect arm-rest." He teases, grinning to his brother. With nobody in the hallways besides them he feels more comfortable treating him in a familial fashion.

Ludger quietly pretends it doesn't cause his heart to jump into his throat whenever Julius touches him, even like this.

"I still have time to grow," he grumbles back. "Besides, you're just freakishly tall. It's no wonder you can never get a date; no one wants to date a giant."

He grins at Julius.
