Kassian stared at Andrei for a moment.

His pulse had picked up for no good reason he could name, other than watching Ilarion kiss Andrei. It had occurred to Kassian that he should avert his gaze, but instead, he'd found himself watching.

Ilarion had moved in like Russian winter, sudden and intense, but the kiss had hardly been cold.

Andrei had told Kassian about his relationship with his brother from early on. Kassian had conceptualized it well enough then, but had never understood it viscerally.

Andrei's mouth was full and still slightly parted, the corners curved up faintly.

Kassian licked his lips.

"Sorry to come after you like that," he said, glancing around them. "It's not that I don't trust you, or think you can't handle yourself."

They lingered in the hall, near the exit. They would have to go outside, and cross the cold and windy yard in order to get back to the captains' barracks.

"It's just..."

He paused, and met Andrei's eyes with quiet intensity.

"Even though your brother's here now, there's enough room for both of us to watch out for you."
