Acquired Taste

Aoshi had tried smoking on a couple occasions. It had never really appealed to him; the taste was frankly bad, he felt like he didn’t get enough air, and it obscured his sense of smell. It was an ‘acquired taste’, Saitou had told him. He certainly couldn’t see anyone liking it the first time.

It did have its place though.

He reached across Saitou’s chest and took the cigarette from his fingers without a struggle. Encircled in his bare arm he took a slow drag, and then he leaned up and pressed a deep kiss on him. The smoke passed between them, tracing their tongues and merging their breaths… Saitou made a faint noise, holding him close.

When he pulled away Saitou slowly exhaled smoke, amber eyes bright and hungry as he pressed him down into the bed. “You have no idea how sexy you are…” he said, and kissed him again. There was no smoke in his kiss but he still tasted of the tobacco. He always did.

Aoshi only pinched out the cigarette so that it wouldn’t burn the floor and returned it.

When cigarettes tasted of Saitou, it was impossible not to acquire a taste for them.
