The Cabinet meeting went smoothly. Both the Leaders listened to the worries of the Cabinet representatives and came up with solutions to some issues and need for further discussion on the other. Once everyone left, Bright followed Ash back to his room. Ash suitcase was open on the bed and he was placing his shirts inside from his closet. He had noticed Bright in the room but chose not to react to it.
"Type told me some interesting facts...", Bright leaned on the door. "About this proposed trip to China...obviously!"
"About the mission? I knew it! It's not as dangerous as Type thinks. I'll be back before you know it. I just have to catch a gang. It's nothing I haven't done before."
"Yeah, I would have believed you any other time...but!", Bright sighed. "Ash ..your father didn't want Type to go on the mission. Do you need further proof of how fatal this could be?"
"Every day in the battlefield
It was a welcome surprise for Type and Man as they observed Bright tightly holding Ash hand in both of his hands as driver open the car for Ash . Bright was leaning on Ash hand not wanting to let him walk into the most dangerous mission of the Ash life. Ash softly let him go as he hugged Type and then Man."I need my brother back, Ash. Do not mess with it!",Type had tears in his eyes as he pulled his brother into a hug.Sia also gave him a short hug, "Stay safe". Ash turned to Bright and crossed the distance between them with long steps. Once he was in Bright vicinity, he held Bright hand and made circles on the back of Bright palm with his thumb. Bright held up Ash hand rubbing their wedding ring."Stay out of trouble, Ash", he smiled and kissed their wedding ring. "I'll wait for you right here", he smiled and placed a small kiss on Ash cheek."I look forward to our talk", Ash smiled.
Bright woke up the next day before Ash did. He groaned a bit as the hard mattress of the infirmary had sprained his muscles. He turned to look at Ash who was peacefully asleep, and Bright flinched as he felt how much discomfort his husband must have been considering all those tubes running inside his chest. He stroked Ash hair away from his forehead and planted a kiss on it. Ash opened his eyes and they shined as they saw Bright so close to him. Bright ' lips curved into a very endearing smile."Morning", Bright whispered cupping Ash face. Ash blinked and leaned in on Bright hands taking in how his husband felt."How do you feel?", Bright whispered. Ash nodded softly."Hmm", he tried to talk."Hey...don't speak! You'll disturb these tubes that are lodged inside you", Bright sighed.He was lovingly caressing Ash forehead when Type walked in. "Morning!", h
Bright was leaving for his day when he walked into Jones in the hallways of the mansion ."Mr. Bright . How is Ash doing? I hope he is recovering well!""Well, he is...actually. Considering everything", Bright glared."Mr Bright ?", Jones sensed the taunt in Bright' voice."Yeah. I mean, do you really care though?", Bright was furious."Excuse me?", Jones was offended."You made sure your favourite son didn't go to the mission but willingly let Ash into that trap? Who knows what could have happened to him in the field. This is the second time you've messed with me, Jones and as kind as I may look, I do not appreciate treachery""I didn't want Ash to go to the mission, Mr Bright. I knew it was risky! I just couldn't...""Well, you didn't do anything to pull Ash out. Did you? In fact, you w
Bright straightened his clothes and open the door.. the frame of the doorway for support and his head was dropped down from heavy breathing. The nasal cannula was carefully lodged in Ash nose and there was a backpack in place of his quiver that housed the oxygen cylinder. Type let him go as Bright slipped his hand on Ash waist."Welcome, home", he smiled as he led Ash to the couch and made him sit. He was out of breath and leaned back closing his eyes. Bright stroked Ash chest as Type dropped his luggage."I'll leave now, Bright . You take good care of my brother", he smiled and waved as he walked out."Hey...do you feel okay?", Bright asked as he saw Ash take deep and noisy breaths. He loosened the buttons of Ash shirt to give his chest space to expand."I just...feel a little", Ash replied opening his eyes. He was sweating a little and Bright could feel that it too
Ash had almost recovered from his injuries and he even had started going to the work. Bright made sure Ash didn't leave his desk all the time but the rest was okay. He was still tethered to his cannula and oxygen cylinder but it didn't bother Ash all that much now. He moved around quite comfortably. And according to his reports, he was gonna get rid of his respirators in roughly 10 days. Ash was quite happy about it even though he couldn't go on missions for another month or so, according to Type orders.Things had been great when it came to him and Bright , too. They hadn't still talked about everything and Bright had made it clear that they would talk once Ash was feeling better. He didn't want to burden Ash with any other drama and wanted him to focus on his recovery. Now that Ash had recovered and could move around without losing breath or needing someone most of the times, he and Bright knew that it was time to so
"Good...I just, can I sit for a while", Ash huffed as Bright pulled away and saw Ash struggling with his breath. "Bright , I was so scared...", he started to speak again but his voice lost volume as he started wheezing rather heavily that caught Bright ' attention."Ash! Are you...no, just...let's just get back to the couch", Bright panicked and carefully walked Ash to the couch. Bright made Ash sit and lean back to rest and he checked Ash oxygen tank."When did you last change this tank?", Bright asked as he shook the tank and found it lighter than usual."Uhh, I don't remember...", Ash was out of breath and Bright ran inside to replace the cylinder with the spare he had brimy for emergency. He rushed back and saw Ash closing his eyes and fainting."No, Ash...wake up!", Bright patted his cheek as he dialled Type."Type, I need you to listen to me carefully. Ash is out of breath and I've repla
One Year Ago:-Everything is going good between Ash and Bright, and their was a peace between White dragon Gang and Black dragon Clan. Everything is going good and everyone is happy.Until one day.With Bright out of realm on business for the week and no way to contact him, Ash had thrown himself into his work at the White dragon base. Not only that, but he had been eating nearly every meal at the base and volunteering for as many extra duties as he could fit into his schedule. He was not pining, no matter what Man said. He was just making sure that he was doing his part and maybe a little more so that when Bright came back he could go back to working at their home on occasion without the others saying anything. That was why he had been the first to volunteer to go out when they had received an alert about an attack on a local alley even
Ash filled Ray in as best as he could. He told him how the final battle had ended. He told him about some of the activities of his group under Lily’s command and how the Thailand base out of all of the base had the best alliance with those small gangs, he even told him about his and Bright breakup.“Of course things are good there. You’re the leader of the White dragon Gang,” Ray said causing Ash to blush. He hadn’t been aware that he had somehow earned Ray respect in such a way.“I just do what I think is right,” he replied. Then to cover his embarrassment he told him about what everyone had been doing lately. He talked about how Seth was up to the usual as he had seen for himself, but Sammy life had changed in nearly every way with her new school where she got to play with other normal children and her extracurricular activities not revolving around traning. He told them him about May had opened a nightclub with her fia
