Dino eyes widened as he felt anger rise through him. He didn’t recall giving Len that hickey, they hadn’t done anything yet to cause a hickey that dark. “Len..” He stomped over, anger flashing in his eyes, “you mind telling me what the hell that is?” He pointed to the singer’s hickey. “Never mind, I have a feeling I don’t want to know,” he sighed angrily, “obviously you wanted to have some fun with someone else,”
Just imagining Len with someone else while Dino stayed ignorant of that situation drove Dino crazy. “I’ll be in our room if you need me,” he disappeared upstairs, nothing else said.
Upon hearing Len’s voice by the door, Dino didn’t even turn to greet Len. He continued to work, simply speaking, “there’s nothing to talk about, I know what a hickey is, don’t make excuses…” Dino just wanted to calm down, he didn’t want to talk with the person that had caused him to become so enraged. “Len, just please leave…” He sighed stressfully, “I want to calm down, I have work anyway…” Still, the don hadn’t turned to gaze at his lover. Dino would always use work as an excuse to vent out his feelings.
Why couldn’t Dino get mad once in a while? After all, Len had accused the don of things many times in the past, to the point of their relationship being at risk. However, seeing Dino this angry, this should prove to Len how much he cares for the younger blonde. He didn’t want anyone receiving pleasure from Len, nor did he want anyone so as touching his lover. Len was Dino’s, and Dino’s alone. He loved the singer deeply, and didn’t want the past to repeat itself.
Len’s lips quivered, he was really disappointed and sad that Dino practically didn’t want to listen to his explanation “It is not hickey!” Did Dino never fully trust him for this whole time? Did the don always watch him with suspicious gaze whenever the singer was away for work? Then what’s the point of their relationship. Dino even didn’t bother to turn around and look at him. “I…I just want to talk… It’s not like what you think…” Len felt something clogged his throat.
Dino clearly didn’t want to talk to him and he even told Len to leave. The singer got impression that Dino looked down on him. Len clenched his fists, he knew that his past couldn’t be changed, but he wasn’t living in the past anymore. Dino was the only who brought him here and taught him love, how to love himself and other people. But it seemed meaningless and hurt just to see the person whom he loved most in this world didn’t trust him. Len was about to say something again but he decided to turn around and made his way out from the house.
Dino felt his anger rising again. Stopping his work, he softly demanded once more, trying not to raise his voice, “Len…I told you…I want to calm down..” By the way his voice quivered, you could tell he was trying to hold down his anger, “just please, leave..go to our room, go downstairs, just anywhere….anywhere but here…I need to calm down, I don’t want to yell at you, after I calm down, I’ll talk…”
After finishing, he resumed his work, not even batting an eye when Len sullenly left the room.
A couple hours had passed when Dino finally calmed down. He didn’t expect Len to leave the house. If that was the case, then Dino would’ve stopped working and went to go get him.
Standing from his seat, he stretched and yawned. He needed to go talk it out with Len now.
Walking towards their room, Dino lightly knocked on the door, “Len?..” No response. “Len?….” Still nothing. Worry began to swirl around his stomach as he opened the door. Upon seeing the room vacant, Dino quickly jogged downstairs. “Len?…” He called out, still nothing. “Damn it Len…” He sighed stressfully. Fishing out his phone, the don quickly dialed his lover’s number, praying he would answer.
