There was something reassuring in Leonardo’s touch to Ezio. The way that he stroked Ezio’s hair after a long night of tending to wounds and slow, gentle lovemaking made him sigh contently, his face rested in the crook of Leonardo’s neck. Leonardo’s long fingers traced through Ezio’s hair and onto his shoulders, gently rubbing small circles there. The older man yawned softly, pressing his cheek to the top of Ezio’s head as he continued to rub Ezio’s skin.
Ezio turned his head slightly to look up at the artist, whose eyes were closed but hands still moving in slow circles. He let out a soft breath and moved to kiss his lover’s shoulder, moving his lips gently to nibble the freckles across his skin. This made Leonardo chuckle softly, cracking one eye open.
"Having fun, amore mio?" He whispered, running his fingers once again through Ezio’s hair. It was loose and thrown over his shoulders, the ribbon he used tossed onto the bedside table. Leonardo looked up from his lover for a moment to glance around the room, deciding that in the morning, he would bathe with Ezio and clean their clothes.
Ezio nodded against Leonardo’s shoulder, shifting up to straddle his hips. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this night. We should do this again sometime soon.” He murmured, and leant down to kiss Leonardo. It was returned slowly and softly, Leonardo pushing back at the last moment to nip Ezio’s bottom lip. They pulled apart, Ezio leaned down on Leonardo’s chest with their noses touching. He gently bumped the other man’s nose, smiling.
Leonardo opened his eyes. “Can you stay the entire night with me, beloved?” He watched for a long moment as Ezio nodded.
"I can stay as long as you’d like. I… I don’t have anything important to do for the next week, I just have to lay low." Ezio laid down on top of Leonardo slowly, stretching his arms onto either side of the man’s head. Leonardo tilted his head to nibble Ezio’s jaw, chuckling.
"You can stay here with me. I can think of many things we can do to spend our time," He grinned, shifting enough to whisper into Ezio’s ear, "I have some things I’d like to try. Would you like to be tied up?"
Ezio’s eyes widened, then he laughed. “Anything for you.”
