There's a song in my heart, and it's always playing. I think they're calling it 'hope' these days.
But Sahura had just gotten him, why would he put him back down? The only reason Sahura could think of to do that, was if they were somewhere that lent to this whole blowing Shigeru's mind thing better than their office, and mind you, he could do it there, too, he just figured it'd be a better idea to go with a bedroom. Usually more comfortable the first few times, anyway. And then they could get adventurous. In the meantime, as much as Sahura didn't really want to, he intended to keep it pretty straight-forward and vanilla, so Shigeru didn't get lost amid he and Sandalio's weird kinks.

What? Ex-gladiators had some weird kinks, and something told him Shigeru wasn't likely to be particularly adventurous this time.

Ah, he should probably - adjusting really quick, instinctively helping thread his fingers together with Sandalio's, and pulling Shigeru away from the wall, first. Before Sandalio blinked them out, because if he did that wrong while they were leaning against a wall, they were going to hit the floor. That seemed unpleasant. Ah. Good place to aim, actually, this worked out rather well. Probably, the look that crossed his face, glancing at Sandalio, and then shifting just enough to be able to kiss his cheek, was ridiculously suggestive, but go figure that much. He was thinking more 'now the fun starts,' but it probably came out more 'come hither' than he'd intended.

Carefully, mind, he moved, and set Shigeru down over there, on the fluff on a box spring they called a mattress these days, and then fell onto it beside him, on his knees because he need to get his boots off, but the only way that was going to happen is if he got his leg armour off, first. "Hmm, I forgot I wear a lot of armour. Damn it." That was fine. It was all connected with belt straps, relatively easy to extract himself from. He needed his other hand though, taking his other hand back and getting the straps undone.

It was funner if he didn't do it himself, but some of these straps got stuck. He wouldn't make his... um, well he'd like to call them his boyfriends - fight with his armour straps.

Don't love what you can't trust. Don't hate what you can't have. Don't say what you can't show. Don't judge what you don't know.
Well yes, maybe that was actually easier, but that really didn't make him feel better. Then again, if he thought about it, he had no idea if he could actually walk right now. That was a question, one he didn't have the answer to at the moment, so maybe it was just as well Sahura didn't intend to let him down just yet. Some part of him was relatively sure he should maybe be a little miffed about it, but that was how Sahura communicated-in disruption. It'd annoyed Shigeru once upon a while ago, and now... well, let's just say it wasn't as annoying as it used to be.

Right, yeah, maybe Blinking leaning against a wall wasn't a good idea. He did finally get put down, though, and then Sahura let go, and Shigeru actually whined for a split second. He didn't want to separate, and Sahura had just separated them, and that annoyed him, for some reason. And then he turned pink. Oops. Sahura had a lot of armor, he had to detach it. And then he'd be done. You know the mechanics of how this works, jeez. You'd think he didn't. Well, maybe he just-that was ridiculous-not that ridiculous, he knew physical contact was a thing humans and human-like creatures tended to crave if they didn't get enough of it, and not getting enough had some rather adverse effects. It stood to reason he might have that issue-it wasn't like anyone but his sister bothered, usually hugs or something, but the Shibas weren't terribly physically affectionate to begin with, and never mind the Shibas left after their parents died hated him, anyway. He did have friends, mind you, but generally speaking, they didn't really touch him much.

When was the last time he'd gotten just a hug from someone... you know what, he could see the bonus of this poly thing, there were two of them. One was occupied, but the other wasn't... He could probably stand, at least, so he did, long enough to take Sandalio's hand and pull him over. It took a second, mostly because Shigeru wasn't terribly confident in his kissing abilities, but eventually he decided he liked these kiss things, and kissed him. He was more or less lost beyond that, but these two usually weren't that bad at taking lead anyway, so maybe that was really all he had to do, but it didn't seem to matter, as long as he was in physical contact with at least one of them. That was what he wanted.

The space that they'd appeared into was relatively neat - though it wasn't hard to tell it was reasonably lived in. The walls were an off-cream color, though the ceiling was sponge painted in a deep blue with silver and white flecks - as if someone tried to capture the sky at night. The dresser against the far wall was varnished mahogany .

Sandalio's bed was rather large - one of the few luxuries he'd afforded himself over the years, aside from feeding his occasional drinking habit. The bedspread was a plain dark blue. One might have expected laundry to be strewn everywhere - but the only evidence of that was a robe that was hanging on the headboard of the bed.

Sandalio smirked just a hair as he caught the look Sahura gave him. A rather wry expression, perhaps more knowing than anything, but... well. Here they were. Ah, and releasing the Sahura so that he could work on the armor straps. For the record, Sandalio looked a little surprised at the whine from Shigeru. Awww. Okay. "You do wear a good bit of that." Yes, well. "Then again, it might be odd to see you without armor." Perhaps a little.

Ah, they both had so much hair. Okay, he was okay with that. So much hair to play with eee. But also so much hair to make sure he wasn't going to kneel or lay on. Eh, couldn't have it both ways, the ex-gladiator supposed.

Sandalio allowed himself to be pulled over easily enough, still smiling as he focused his attention on the lovely healer who was doing them the honor of joining them. Ooo kisses, he got kisses apparently. Maybe Shigeru really was okay doing this and he shouldn't worry so much. ... He'd probably worry anyway, at least a little.

Sandalio kissed back for a moment, parting his lips just slightly and savoring the contact with the other. He ended up sliding his arms around Shigeru loosely, and holding him for a little while. The fingers of one hand may have taken to lightly carding through part of Shigeru's hair, but he was very careful not to pull it.

It wasn't long before Sandalio broke the kiss though, and began to trail kisses down Shigeru's jaw instead, occasionally glancing up with a look that was probably an odd cross between curious and suggestive - he was watching to make sure that this was okay with Shigeru as he went.

But it wasn't long before he managed to get the zipper on Shigeru's shirt between his teeth, because Shigeru was wearing too many clothes, and what better way to start than with the shirt right? Right.... Yes the teeth were mostly necessary. Frankly if this was the strangest thing he did all day, then he was doing pretty well.

Given they'd both never really managed to catch Sahura without all that armor, or at least some of it, yeah, it probably would be pretty weird to see him without it. Shigeru nodded rather emphatically along with what Sandalio had to say on that, because yeah, no, basically that. Some part of Shigeru's mind, even, was trying to process the idea of Sahura not wearing his armor, but it probably wouldn't be a good idea for this, and that made logical sense, but his mind still didn't seem to want to accept it. He just decided not to focus on that too long, or he'd end up going cross-eyed in confusion about something that was probably one of the least confusing aspects of this whole thing. What the heck made him decide this was a good idea, anyway, he should-he... really did not care right now, okay...

A happy little noise bubbled up in the back of his throat-yes, that, that touching thing, that was what he wanted. Sandalio wasn't close enough, neither of them were, but one thing at a time, probably, you know, he was almost 1,100 years old, and he liked to think he had a pretty good idea of what he wanted and the weird urges his body had. That one, strangely, almost caught him entirely by surprise. In retrospect, it made sense, of course Shigeru wanted them closer, because it'd been probably far too long since anyone had gotten even this close, but he'd hit the ground running some several hundred years ago, and apparently not ever stopped long enough to notice it. Shigeru usually wasn't a touchy type, anyway, but he supposed you couldn't really call this usual to begin with. If someone had told him he'd end up in bed with Sandalio and Sahura both last week, he'd have laughed at them. ... assuming he had the time to laugh instead of doing something else, but that was-okay, that was sad, actually.

Oddly, somewhere amid Sandalio finger combing his hair, he noticed that made his spine tingle. Not an expected reaction, but not really a bad one. It wasn't a bad tingle, but he wasn't really sure-well, who knew, might be a side-effect of this touch starvation thing. It wasn't like he'd noticed he'd had it before, this was a new one. He could get used to this, he decided somewhere in there, his hands resting on either side of Sandalio's jaw, but then he moved again. And for a second, he almost whined again, but he killed it before it came out. They were still touching, it was fine, and the jaw kisses weren't bad. Actually, he found them kind of pleasing. He did tilt his head a bit, to make that easier, and in doing so, his neck popped. ... oops.

Wait where was-oh. That was... why was that fascinating, that shouldn't be that interesting, Shigeru figured, somewhere amid Sandalio snagging his vest zipper in his teeth and... why was that fascinating? It was very barely there, but he did tinge a bit pink, trying to figure out why that was interesting. That was, that was a way of doing that. Okay. "Whyyyy is that fascinating...?" Maybe they knew. Either way, his brain wouldn't stop thinking it, and it was the only thing he could think to-he'd meant to say something about 'that's one way to do it', but that came out, instead. Go figure. Right, removal of clothing, that was a thing that had to happen. And then the pink tinge got brighter, because he thought about that, and it really hit him he was actually going along with this, and that was immensely more fascinating than it should've been. It shouldn't be surprising, probably. He did have a sex drive, apparently, it was just, he was good at ignoring it, or it only kicked in sometimes... no, there was a word for that, gray-ace. Demisexual? Yeah. ... that was him. That was definitely him.

Strange that he managed to find the zipper so easily. Or maybe that was what the kisses were for, trying to find it, because it was kind of hidden-brain, focus. If Shigeru had to guess, he was probably nervous. That made the most sense.

That was a cute noise. Somewhere in here, Sandalio decided he quite liked that happy little noise that Shigeru had made. We'd hope he made that one again at some point, yes. Granted, they were just getting started, so it wasn't hard to imagine that at some point they'd manage to make Shigeru make happy noises again. Maybe not that exact one, but hey.

The Spaniard did pause somewhere in there, an eyebrow raising. "I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to do that." Somewhere between concerned and amused. Ah, but he was extracting Shigeru from his clothing, and went back to doing that thing where he pulled the zipper down. It didn't take that long to get all the way to the bottom, and when he did so he let go of the zipper and slid his hands under the vest instead, sliding it off of Shigeru.

Sandalio gave something of a wry smile after the question completely registered. He shrugged a bit. "Sometimes it doesn't take much. Nothing weird about it." Not really at least. But then, Shigeru had apparently never done this before, so that was likely to make everything that much more enticing.

Ah, he'd been planning to trail kisses up his torso while taking off the other shirt, but at the moment normal kisses seemed like a good plan. Though, this was apparently fascinating to Shigeru, which meant Sandalio was indeed doing something right.

Sometimes it was hard to tell what 'right' was going to be. But maybe it would be less so with Shigeru than most. He wasn't going to complain about that though, because the Spaniard didn't much like wondering if the other party was enjoying things. Especially not when there was apparently some trauma laying under the surface for him to incidentally trip on. That shouldn't surprise him, Shigeru was a Tiger, and he'd always wondered how that happened. The answer was clearly right in front of him.

Lightly his lips brushed against Shigeru's again, while his hand - which had disengaged from Shigeru's hair at some point to avoid pulling on it - ended up resting against his back.  Well, there was time for chest kisses later, maybe he'd do the shirt the normal way.

It didn't take very long for Sandalio to slide his hands down Shigeru's back lightly until he found the edge of the shirt at the sides and slid his fingers under the hem gently.

He'd never realized how lovely Shigeru was, honestly. Sandalio had always known the other man was attractive but... wow. ... And apparently half of Valkyrie was about to be right about who he was sleeping with. Because they all seemed to be convinced he was in bed with Sahura - but he hadn't ever been before. Adventures all around today.
