Title: Slow Dancing

Notes: Written to Illan viimeisest hitaat by Kaija Koo. The lyrics are in Finnish and though they were a very significant inspiration for this fic, even just the melody will probably do the job, too.
"Allelujah is on his way to his room when he accidentally stops by the conference hall door."
Allelujah is on his way to his room when he accidentally stops by the conference hall door.
The celebration they had to commemorate their successful missions has long since ended, leaving the make-shift ballroom empty - except for Lockon and Tieria. The lights are low, making the room almost completely dark as the two Meisters slowly dance to the quiet music still echoing from the speakers.
Allelujah finds himself staring, and he realizes that he has never seen Tieria like he is now.
The purple-haired Meister is smiling softly at Lockon as he allows the sniper to press them impossibly close together, his body relaxed and willing in the protective circle of Lockon's arms around his waist. As Lockon bends down to whisper something in his ear, Tieria's eyes sparkle, his expression more fond and full of love than Allelujah ever thought possible for the Virtue pilot, before a short, soft laugh bursts from Tieria's smiling lips.
Then Lockon raises his hands to cup Tieria's face and bring their mouths together in a deep, passionate kiss, as if the two of them are the only two people on the ship, and Allelujah thinks it best to leave. This was side of Tieria that was only meant for Lockon.
