    Chugga, chugga, chugga, chugga. . .

    The sound of an old-fashioned steam engine train rumbled throughout Sakuramori. A steam engine was a more uncommon sort of train one might see in Fiore, reminding its citizens of a more archaic time. It seemed archaic compared to all of the magic-powered vehicles in modern society, but many other countries on Earthland still used them. It might've just been Fiore that seemed ahead of their time. The train might've been old-fashioned, but it was never boycotted or avoided. It still took its passengers from one point to the next, and so people continued to ride them as they would any other train. And like all other trains, there was hardly any activity within them at such an early hour, there only being six men seated at various spots.

    Among those men were two Rune Knights dressed in their regal black—one with short, messy red hair and the other with silvery-white hair and a far more refined appearance in comparison. The redheaded Knight had deep, large bags underneath his eyes that made him look like he had been sleep deprived for weeks. He wasn't, and always found time to sleep. In fact, he would've been asleep now if not for a far more burdensome subject hanging over him like a weight. They were headed deep into Sakuramori for a standard missing-person mission, but Doppo was seldom giving it any thought at that moment.

    ". . . You know, Joe," Doppo began in his usual quietness, staring at his lap, "sexual. . . preference. . . is such a big topic nowadays. . . especially for guys as young as you. . ." he continued. Doppo was normally very blunt about these things, and still is, but made some sort of attempt to ease into the subject instead of dropping it on his junior.

    Beaux stared out the train window, not focusing on anything in particular and letting his mind wander. Beyond the glass, landscape flew by at a steady pace, creating a stream of color but no particular shape. The angel’s mind was on his destination, Sakuramori. It was rumored to be a spooky place with odd creatures and ever odder people. However, he was secretly excited to see the crystal caves in which they had to explore despite the solemn mission that required it. Beaux was ever-fascinated by pretty things.

    The train gave off another loud blast of its horn, shaking Beaux from his thoughts. He glanced over at Doppo to see if the red-haired man was awake. Though they were ranked equally in the Rune Knights now, the older man was still his mentor. Being only eighteen, it was natural for Beaux to need some guidance and training outside of Knight duties. He was the youngest Major General at the moment - and maybe ever.

    Doppo didn’t appear to be asleep, though he was staring at his lap. Beaux was about to return to his mind’s wanderings when the man across from him spoke up. His voice was quiet but the words he spoke were clearly heard by the younger Knight. Beaux’s face began to redden from his chin to his ears. Such topics were never discussed in his homeland and kept extremely private and taboo. Despite being away from Napedia for so long, he still felt uncomfortable talking about it with anyone who wasn’t a partner. It was something forced into his upbringing so deeply that he couldn’t seem to shake the shame he felt about it. For Doppo to bring that up to him at all, let alone in public, made the angel ripe with embarrassment.

    “Er… well…” Beaux stammered, nervously fiddling with the buttons on his Rune Knight uniform. He didn’t even notice that Doppo called him the wrong name again. “I-I suppose it is a big topic…” The angel wanted nothing more than to disappear into thin air so he didn’t have to continue this conversation.

    Doppo didn't say anything for a moment after Joe responded. Instead, he looked at him from his seat. He was fidgeting with his buttons and his face was reddening into a blush. It was perhaps the one thing on that steam train with the most vibrant of color that morning, but Doppo couldn't understand why he was suddenly appearing the way he did. Was he nervous about how he would think of him? Or maybe he was feeling insecure about his sexuality in its entierity. Doppo couldn't tell, but he was determined to comfort him.

    "Yeah. . . and unfortunately there are lots of folks who looked down on others in that topic. . ." Doppo started honestly, as he normally was with most people. He was always quick to get to the point, regardless of the subject. "Joe, you're gay, right. . .? You know, like. . ." he raised his two index fingers and touched the tips together as if to represent something. He kept poking them against one another, looking at Joe and then back at his fingers as if to silently establish a connection. It was difficult to tell with Doppo, as he is always indifferent and deadpan, but he was looking somewhat anticipant. His eyes were wider and kept looking at Joe's. He wasn't equipped with the sense of what was socially acceptable and what wasn't, so conversations on a public steam train like this seemed fine to him. After all, it was with good intent. He wanted to get to know his junior better and to make him feel more comfortable, although this probably wasn't an issue for Joe.

    ”Yes, I am,” Beaux replied to Doppo’s blunt question, shifting uncomfortably in his seat. The embarrassment he felt was incredibly evident in his pink cheeks. He hadn’t had a serious discussion about his sexuality in a long time. Back home, it was always something suppressed by his caretakers. If anyone found out what he was, it would reflect poorly on his family in Napedian society. Any talk of unspeakable topics such as sexuality were frowned upon, and in some cases illegal. The boy hadn’t even been able to bring himself to say the word until he was a young teen, and even then it was when he was alone and out of earshot.

    Beaux looked up to see Doppo staring at him and touching the tips of his fingers together. He took a quiet, yet sharp inhale. The angel knew his mentor wasn’t exactly the most socially adept. He often was blunt and completely unaware of social norms. But doing this little hand motion in public? On a train with others around? Beaux wanted to melt into the floor and disappear.

    The younger Knight quickly reached a gloved hand out and pushed Doppo’s hands down and out of view of any other train-goers. “Mon Dieu!” he gasped, “Why are you-? That’s n-not how it works-” Beaux stammered, completely flustered. His instinct was to correct the man’s assumptions that were demonstrated by his hand motions. But was he really prepared to explain how his sexuality worked out loud? There was no way for him to explain the awkwardness of this topic to a man who wouldn’t - or couldn’t - understand the impact of social norms.

    Doppo stopped tapping the tips of his index fingers together when Joe suddenly felt compelled to push them down into his lap. It took a moment to realize why Joe was doing what he did. Was the gesture incorrect? Doppo wasn't stupid and wasn't a virgin either—he was about as knowledgable about making love as the next guy. His only issue was that he lacked a filter, and when he felt the need to explain something to someone, unless they gave him a clear sign that they understood, he would continue explaining and it would normally develop with "too much detail." So the only other gesture could have only been one thing.

    ". . .Oh," mumbled Doppo, looking down at his hands for a moment to rearrange them, "like this then, right. . .?" By this point, Doppo's left hand had transformed into a loose fist, and his right finger thrusted in and out of the side with a motion so slow that what could be seen as a joke among teenagers was actually completely genuine.

    Before Joe could stop him this time, Doppo stopped himself and reached over into his bag to grab something. ". . .I've done some research, and since you're pretty young, I wanna talk to you about protecting yourself. . ." he explained while rummaging through the small leather satchel that he would sometimes bring with him during day trips or investigations. It had several things in there: his plate, a flip phone, a small map, mints, and some other heavier objects which didn't really belong in a satchel. When he finished fumbling through the clutter inside, he pulled out a relatively large, unripe banana and a plastic packaging for a latex condom with the words "X-TRA LARGE" printed all over it like warning tape. He held both of them up to his chest, adjacent to one another, looking at the condom and then over at Joe.

    "Ah, so. . . this is a condom. . ." Doppo started to mumble again, indifferent and unphased by the bystanders that might have been tuning into the crash course too, "I wanted to make this as relatable as I could for you, but I didn't know your size. . . so. . ." he looked down at Joe's thighs, or more specifically his private area. It was nothing perverse or creepy, but he seemed to be in deep thought. ". . .I just got the largest size so you can see everything clearly, I guess. . . most men aren't this big. . . that's why they call it extra large. . ." Doppo paused for a moment to try to rip the packaging without tearing the condom.
