Billy pressed closer against Dom, squirming a little beneath the blankets. A full moon shone down across them, and Dom was snoring. And Billy? Was finding it endearing. Fuck, but he really had fallen for this human.

He sighed to himself, thinking it over. Should he? Go away with Dom, back to LA, to the world his lover had left? It was possible, he knew. There were mers who did it, if not often. Who left the sea, got themselves lives on land. He even knew where to go, within the village, to obtain the papers he'd need, the proof of existence . . .

But just because he knew he could do it, didn't mean he should. Even if it was only for a few weeks . . . Missing a night here and there he could explain, but not that much. And he did have responsibility, no matter how much he might wish he didn't. Besides, with this . . . Would Dom expect him to leave the ocean forever? To go and live as a human with him? Would he do it?

Billy feared very much that the answer to all his questions was yes. He simply wasn't sure he could deny Dom that, if he asked for it. Not when he could never ask Dom to do the same for him.

He squirmed again, one hand trailing across Dom's stomach, the muscles and skin, so dry . . . He'd done it to himself, hadn't he? Fallen in love with this man, this human, even if he hadn't meant to.

And now what? Where did that leave him? They belonged to two very, very different worlds, and . . . could they even hope to make a try of it? Even ignoring his duties, his world, could he live away from the ocean, just changing in the shower, or a swimming pool?

It wouldn't be the same. Might not even be enough to sustain him. How could he know, for sure? But Dom . . . the ocean-eyed lad had haunted him for so long, and now was in his arms. In his arms, and . . . he didn't want to give it--him--up.

Two weeks. Maybe . . . Maybe it would be worth it. He could explain it away, if he really, really had to. And Dom . . . Billy sighed, propping himself up a little to watch his lover sleep. Dom might be worth giving it all up for. "Love you, mo cridhe," he murmured, decision made. He could only hope it was the right one.

Dom's cell phone rang, the music tone somehow both angry and annoying. He fumbled for it in his sleep. "‘lo?"


Dom groaned, turning over. "Lij. What?"

"So cheerful, Monaghan."

"It's five fucking am," Dom replied, after checking the clock. "Just like last time. What?"

"Just checking to see when you're flying in," Lij replied, with studied innocence.

Dom groaned. "I'm booking a flight later today. You know, when it's light outside. And my eyes are open."

"This guy coming with you?" Same deceptively innocent tone.

Dom pulled himself up a little more, but Billy was dead to the world. "I'm buying two tickets." Which wasn't really an answer, but . . .

"Oh. Good. So . . ."

"Two weeks, Lij," Dom promised with a sigh. "I'll be back in two weeks. And you can tell Astin, too, and get him off my back. So glad I decided to get away from it all . . ."

There was a short silence, in response to his sarcasm. "All right, Dom," Lij said at last, subdued. "I'll see you then, I expect. Enjoy your little vacation from reality."

Dom winced, as Lij hung up. And hauled himself into the bathroom, scrubbing his face with both hands and not daring to look in the mirror. Vacation from reality. Fuck, but that seemed a little too accurate. A little too likely. Even if Billy went back with him now . . . What kind of chance for a future did they have?

"A bird may love a fish, but where would they make a home?" he murmured, the quote coming to mind from somewhere. And wings he might lack, but Bills . . . "Shit."

Ok now to comment. Great chapter. Ohhh the angst. What to do, what to do.

I think this is going to get even more exciting when Billy meets the others.

Great job.

*shyly*... Hello... *waves*

I read this entire series over the past few days and was very excited to see that you had posted more today... I absolutely love this fic. It's so very well written, and the beautiful descriptions and wording... It's amazing.

Keep it up. (Which is my polite way of saying "More now please."... :)

Thanks Thuri, I'm glad your muse decided to hit you!!

I was close to hitting my muse, I have to say! But hopefully he'll stick around for a bit, now.

And hopefully Dommie will behave himself. *crosses fingers*

Everything'll turn out in the end. One way or another. ;D

There will be more Siren's Song soon, as the muse paid a visit last night. Apparently he was just jealous of everyone else I was talking to!

Mmm. Getting interesting. Love this fic. Can't wait for more. Would you ever think of getting a drawing made of Billy as a merman? I'm sure you have a lovely description in your head. I can't draw, but I know there are others that can. Even if it's a little cartoon-like thing, it would be very cool. I'd ask blondiusmaximus if she's do it. It would just be so cool.

There are actually a couple people working on drawings of Billy, apparently. I think they're going to be full on paintings, eventually, but I've only seen a few preliminary sketches, now. I'd absolutely love to see him as a merman, and just wish I could draw, so I could do it myself.

Other people have suggested blondiusmaximus, too, but since I don't know her at all, it'd be more than a little awkward.

I could always ask her for you, if you wanted! I don't know her too well, but asking if she's interested has never done any harm.

I certainly won't say no! Seeing my Billy drawn out would be a wonderful thing indeed.

I can't believe that I haven't commented on this until now.
I guess work got in the way.

Anyway, this is another great chapter (I hope you won't get tired of me saying that ;)). The tension is building up as both Billy and Dom think about the future. I hope they'll be able to work something out.

Even ignoring his duties, his world, could he live away from the ocean, just changing in the shower, or a swimming pool?

I sincerely hope that it won't come to that - that Dom wouldn't do that to Billy.

"A bird may love a fish, but where would they make a home?"

That is a good question. I'm looking forward to the next chapter :)

I will never get tired of hearing you say you like this. Believe me.

And I'm so glad you still do, and that it's still making you question what's going to happen!

Aww, the two poor loves, having to face such obstacles... Such a beautiful chapter again, although it makes me kind of sad, too, to know that their honeymoon is over, so to speak. Leaves a bittersweet aftertaste and a longing for more, darling! *adores*
