A ROMANTIC EDUCATION - STEVE/TONY AU [CHAPTER 10]
Tony didn’t bother saying anything to Steve, he just cursed silently and punched the wall. You had the chance right there Stark , he thought to himself and walked into the locker room frustrated. All the other students already left, and Steve was dressing up. He took a deep breath and turned his back to him, putting his clothes on, wondering if Steve was looking at him.
He couldn’t help but take a couple of sly glances at the man he had now seen bare naked, yes, he was clearly a man. He shut his eyes tightly trying to prevent himself as he slipped on his vest, and then started buttoning up his shirt.
Tony was contemplating of joking with Steve and try to figure out what he actually felt about that incident. “Enjoyed the view Rogers? You can now understand why the ladies go crazy over me.” he joked, with a serious tone. He put his blazer on and turned around to catch Steve still trying to get peeks at him.
“It’s not all that.” He found himself saying, he didn’t want to make Tony’s head bigger, but he didn’t want to reveal that he found himself in awe when he saw the millionaires body. He didn’t want to get friendly with him either, at first he did but now he found himself loving arguing with him, so staying on those terms was the best option for him, even though he could really see no sense in it.
Tony raised an eyebrow. “Oh?” he said, walking closer to him. He wanted to make Steve feel intimidated and test his proclaimed love to Peggy. “Don’t lie Rogers”, he said cheerfully. He felt a bit silly by doing so, but he couldn’t really hold himself back.
Steve looked down at Tony, squaring up to him with a serious look, “I don’t lie, Stark.” He said, though there was an urge within him to just grab Tony, to place his hands on him like he did on the football pitch but he had to restrain himself. Swallowing heavily, he continued to stare down with his bright blue eyes.
“The way your arms are folded and your right leg is kneeling a bit indicates that you’re lying, Rogers”, Tony pointed out. “I did study psychology for quite a bit,you know” he said moving closer to him. He just wanted to be closer to him once again, with nobody else looking at them.
The captain found himself biting his lower lip, trying to intimidate young boy before him with his own glare, though as soon as he pointed out his body positions, he instantly moved to try and cover them up.
“Better watch it, Stark, remember, this area is my turf. Your father may have bought it but I run it, as you’ve seen.” He said, his fingertips twitching as he placed his hand on Tony’s shoulder.
“So what? I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong, or am I?” he said, pleased to see that Steve was touching him. He didn’t want to rush anything, but if Steve kept this up, Tony would go for it.
“So what? You’re testing my patience, I’ve warned you, I can be nice if you’re nice in return - no snarky comments.” He was trying so hard not to give anything away and to be stern, but it was very difficult to, especially as he stared straight into Tony’s eyes.
“Indeed I am”, Tony chuckled, pressing his fingers through Steve’s hair, looking at his eyes deeply. “I don’t think that I’m behaving badly now, no, on the contrary, I’m being nice to you right now.”
“Nice? You call this being nice?” He said, usually Steve wouldn’t let anyone near him, or touch him, but he was actually enjoying this, he found himself almost leaning down into Tony as he continued with what seemed to be an unblinking stare.
“Isn’t it? It’s better than arguing with you in the middle of the hall or you pinning me down in the middle of the field”, Tony said. He was pleased with Steve’s reactions so far,as he made no effort into pushing him away. Maybe he did want it as well in the end.
“Well I…” He was finding it difficult to even speak, Stark had some magnetism about his body; Steve just wanted to get closer to it. He found himself giving Tony a light shove, only to push him up against the lockers, “Quit it Stark, I’m not just another girl that you can have your way with. I have a girlfriend” He repeated, not only to remind Tony but to remind himself too.
“Of course you’re not a girl, you’re a guy”, he grinned. “Do you? You seem to forget about her a lot lately”, he added. “And one way or another you’ve managed to push me up against stuff, Rogers” he said, grabbing him by the collar of his shirt.
“I never forget about her, and besides, how do you know what I’m thinking?” He argued starting to raise his voice a little.
“I don’t know, I’m just guessing”, he replied, as he started to become a bit annoyed. “You seem pretty eager to do stuff with me, stuff that you have yet to do with her. Nobody will know, Rogers”
“Don’t be stupid… I don’t like men and I don’t like you, I’ve made that clear.” He spoke trying to be calm but meanwhile his heart was racing.
Tony placed his hand on Steve’s chest. “Once again, you’re lying, and I have no idea why are you doing this.”, he muttered. He knew it, he knew that Steve was trying to resist. His ears turned red, and his heart was racing so fast. “You don’t know if you don’t like guys either, you’ve never been with anyone, and you’re just staying with Peggy because that’s your safe choice”
“Safe? I love her, I’m dedicated and loyal. You’ve told me you’ve never been in a long term relationship, so you wouldn’t understand.” He was becoming more fierce as much as he tried to control himself, his grip was becoming tighter as he held Tony to the lockers.
The boy grinned as Steve’s grip became tighter. “Whatever, Rogers. I might not understand, but I know when someone wants it, you have no idea what it feels like”. He stayed silent for a moment and then moved his knee, pushing on Steve’s front smirking.
He flinched a little and then pulled back, letting Tony go, “I don’t want to know. I’ll find out when I’m ready.”
Tony raised his shoulders. “Fine. Do it your way”, he said, trying not to show that he was a bit angry and disappointed.
“I wasn’t planning on doing it anyone else’s way.” Steve walked over to his bag and picked it up, though inside he felt a bit empty; in a way, he was expecting Tony to have done something, to have made a move. But why would he? They weren’t interested in each other, or at least that’s what he kept saying to convince himself.
You’re such a fool, Tony thought to himself and watched Steve picking up his things. Without thinking about it twice he walked right behind him. “Rogers”, he said loudly.
“What!?” He asked as he turned around to face Tony,
He looked at him for a second, wondering if this would get him into trouble. Without saying anything else, he pushed Steve against the wall now and kissed him aggressively. He didn’t care if Steve would punch him or whatever, he had the chance to do it and he did.
He found himself locked in a kiss, his eyes widened as he felt Tony’s against his own. It seemed so surreal, his body was numb. He managed to feel his arms twitch at his sides, placing them on Tony’s waist as he felt the pressure of the kiss, the soft lips that met his own. He wanted to push away but he wanted to endure it at the same time.
Tony held on him tightly, he had no intention of breaking that kiss any time soon, and he played around with Steve’s tongue, relieving all of the tension he felt towards him all day. Steve didn’t let go either,and that only made Tony feel more sure about his actions. Their lips were moving along with each others with a matching rhythm which was playful and full of emotion.
Steve found his hands running up and down Tony’s waist, he hadn’t ever had such a passionate kiss; not even from Peggy. This made his heart beat even faster and his eyes were now shut; he’d just met this guy and he was already kissing him and he was a guy. Their bodies were pressed close as Steve’s grip pulled Tony even closer, though as he heard the bell ring his eyes opened again and he pushed Tony away lightly. “The hell… Was that?” He said between breaths.
“A kiss? What do you think that was Mr.Jock?”, Tony laughed. He silently cursed the bell, but he did enjoy every second of that long kiss. To be honest though, he was glad the bell rung, he couldn’t hold himself back for too long. They didn’t have the privacy to continue, and he wasn’t sure if Steve wanted to anyway. “Don’t lie to me again Rogers, you did liked it. You could have broken the kiss earlier but you didn’t, you held me so close to you. Oh. And that bulge in your pants proves further my point”, he smirked, pleased with himself.
