“A Silent Night’s Burn”
A SFW Morenatsu tickle fetish story.
(Turn away if y’all don’t like.)
With a shaky huff, the husky shivered and brushed off the chilly snow from his snout, rearing his boot back to kick his apartment door shut behind him. He tugged off a maroon beanie and flicked it to a nearby coat rack, following it with his lime scarf and baggy black coat. And with his drenched covers now removed, he slowly trudged through his messy, small apartment, and collapsed onto a futon.
Winter vacation had officially begun only three hours ago, and already, Kouya was dreadfully bored.
He spent a good sixth of the hour flopping about on his couch, mentally agonizing over the silence encompassing him, aside from the ticking of his double-time metronome clock.
“Greuughhhh…” He mumbled, tail flopping as he rolled across onto his stomach. Just has he had found some sort of comfortable position to maybe nap in, he found himself grabbing for his vibrating phone. Service out in the village was garbage, so every chance he got, he to check whatever he received.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, it was an incoming call from Shun.
“Hnnnnello…?” Kouya groggily murmured as he answered.
“Heyyyyyya!” Shun drawled happily. From his voice alone, Kouya could tell the wolf had a skip in his step, wherever he was.
“Hey Shun, what’s up…?” The husky rubbed the sleep out of his face; now was not the best time to sleep, apparently, after ten minutes of trying to nap.
“Oh, uhh, not much. Just bored, wanted to know if I could come over!”
Kouya blinked and glanced at his clock, before sighing a bit. “I don’t know if now is the best time. I’m kinda tired.”
“Oh… uhhhmmmm… awkward, hee! I’m kinda… outside your door already!”
That made him raise his head, Kouya throwing a look over his shoulders at his door; as if on cue, a soft, yet fast rap of a knuckle across the old wood sounded.
With a slow blink, the husky hung up the phone, pulled himself from the couch, and unlocked the door. Shun was on the other side, looking up at him with his familiar, childish grin, tail wagging with an eagerness only the husky had come to know more than the others.
He threw a wry smile. “Alright, fine. Come in, I’m bored anyways.”
Like a curious child, Shun giggled as he scampered past the older canine and right into the apartment, looking at almost everything in sight.
A part of Kouya suddenly became rather flustered and protective as he shut the door and guided Shun to the futon. “D-Don’t mention the mess. Just… don’t.”
Kouya couldn’t tell if he was being ignored or if the smaller wolf was just oblivious; all he did was sit idly on the futon and paddle his paws back and forth. “It’s so weird, the year’s almost over!”
The husky collapsed beside him with a huff. “Can’t say I was looking forward to winter break. I hate snow, but winter just has to be the longest season…”
And the silence that followed got broken in a way Kouya would’ve never imagined.
“What… do you plan on doing for Christmas this year?”
Another slow blink, and the husky crossed his arms. He hadn’t thought about that; he lived on his own since the past summer, and he wasn’t exactly about to go frolick into his parents’ arms for a day or two. And he really had no place else to go.
Wow. The first Christmas of loneliness. Probably the first of many.
“Let’s not talk about that.” Kouya reached forward and brushed a couple small boxes off his coffee table, before pulling over a notebook and pencil. “I’m gonna jot down song notes. Make yourself coffee or tea if you want.”
Shun pouted a bit. “You can spend Christmas with us, Kouya. I mean, the average Kodori clan Christmas isn’t very typical, but we wouldn’t mind having--”
“We’re done with that topic, Shun.” The husky spat, gripping his pencil tighter as he tried to toss his mind away from the ache in his heart. He sighed after a brief moment of respite and tossed the pencil aside to the table. “Sorry, I… didn’t put any thought to this year’s holidays.”
Shun tilted his head. He didn’t often see the “darker” side of Kouya. Sure, the rebellious husky didn’t emote. But on the rare occasions he did… it was sometimes frightening.
But he placed a hand on Kouya’s and smiled his signature grin.
“Spend it with us!”
After a second, the husky looked back up to the wolf, with a small smirk. And as the silence loomed, Shun’s read of Kouya’s face somewhat darkened. What was he planning, behind those yellow, eerie eyes…?
And it hit him in an instant as the husky tackled him into a hug, though his stubby claws were jabbing into the small wolf’s sides.
“GYAH!” Shun’s eyes widened instantaneously as he shrieked and thrashed in a moment’s notice. Kouya’s hold on him immediately tightened, his fingers and claws groping at the baggy sweater the boy wore, assaulting his torso rapidly as the wolf tried to fight back and escape. “N-Noho, K-Kouya, s-sta-AHahap!”
“Aw c’mon Shun, lemme just say thanks!” Emphasizing that final word, Kouya’s claws slid up Shun’s shirt and dove right into his smooth tummy, kneading about as the wolf remained totally pinned!
“NYEEAHAHAW!!” Shun squealed once more and broke into a series of light, yet quick cackles and chortles, the adorable wolf trying to push away as his soft belly was mercilessly tickled.
Kouya wasn’t about to let up; he needed to keep the mood up, and he wasn’t about to fall over and thank Shun from the bottom of his silently burning heart for welcoming him in for the holidays. The two were close, yes, but even then…
Fun was meant to be had, yeah?
Claws raked up the energetic wolf’s sides, sending him into even louder laughter, as he grabbed the support of the futon and began pulling to try and slip away. “K-Koohoho-HOHOUYA! S-StaaaAAHAHAWP!!”
Even the husky was giggling as he let Shun go, the wolf flopping forward a bit as he nabbed both of his boots in an armlock by the ankles. He yanked them off in an instant, and by the time Shun’s panting faded enough for him to realize his new situation, it was too late.
He was snorting and blushing a bright red, Kouya’s fingers flicking and teasing softly at his round, wiggly toes. Shun’s feet paddled uselessly in the armlock, the wolf practically holding his own face and shaking madly with giggles and guffaws galore!
And it wasn’t helping now that the fingers were draping down his flat soles, dipping at his heels and circling back up to trace beneath his tootsies.
“N-NONONONOHOHOHOOO!!” The wolf held his sides and kicked in vain as his soles were tormented and teased, trying to get free… again.
“Oh c’mooooon. You know ya like it.” A tease by heart, Kouya chuckled as he pinned his legs down on his lap, and he gave Shun a brilliant surprise.
The wolf was cackling even more the moment he felt a bushy husky tail swipe up his soles and dust over his toes.
“EeeeEEEYAHAHAW!! K-KOHOUYA!!” Shun squealed adorably and punched about, trying to thrash his way to freedom. Kouya was still giggling contently, even as he was assaulted by weak punches to the shoulder and abdomen, Shun’s useless attempts to escape being a bit hilarious to watch.
And then, he felt a jab into his side.
“Ngyah!” He tried to play it off as a mere cough as he tossed Shun’s feet aside, letting the wolf pant and giggle in contentment thanks to his new freedom.
But as Shun’s breathing returned to normal, he sat up with his normal grin, but… it had more of a darker undertone to it this time.
“I heeeeeeeeaaaarrrrd thaaaaaaaaaat~!”
Kouya swallowed, and now he was the one blushing. He scooted over one space, but in that instant he was tackled by the wolf. The husky could easily fight him off if he so wanted-- hell, he was trying to do so.
But it was hard to do so when said wolf’s small fingers were poking and skittering around his belly and sides.
“Ngyeheh…! Sh-Shun, dammit! S-Stop that!” The wolf had practically latched to his abdomen, Kouya snorting as he failed to pry him off.
“Nuh-uhhhh~!” The wolf chuckled, reaching up his tank top and jabbing his fingers right into his sides, then dragging them right into his armpits.
“A-AUYEGH!” Kouya let out a rather humorous squeak as he fought his attacker as nonviolently as he possibly could, batting at the wolf as his ahoge bobbed in the husky’s snout. “Sh-Shuuuuhuhun…! E-Ehehee… eheheeehehee!!”
Shun couldn’t even hide his surprise and excitement as he heard the light giggles flow from the broken, blushing husky. Now the wolf was the one laughing happily, having made a discovery he was all too happy to toy with. “Tiiiickle tiiiickle~!”
“Sh-Shuhuhun, n-nahahahaw! G-Gehehet ooooffff!!” Kouya pushed on the wolf’s shoulders, trying to pry him once again from his body, but to no avail, somehow.
Shun was short, limber, and… generally light and frail. How the hell was he keeping such a strong grip?!
Maybe the husky just didn’t want to hurt him.
And then, he did let go. Surprisingly, the giggles coming from the husky died out into pants, before he laid flat as Shun crawled back from his torso, Kouya straightening his tank top before sitting up panting.
And his eyes widened as he saw his large, bare paws sitting in an ankle lock from the wolf.
The wolf flashed him a wry grin. Something he never did. He was never smug, rebellious, or cocky. Was he taking after him…?
No time to answer the question. Those fingers were already draping over his pudgy soles.
