Saving Riley



Chapter 1


Riley  walked in and released his energem from his hand so I would fit snugly  into its place on the wall. He breathed a sigh of relief.


'Finally, back where I feel the safest'  he thought as his eyes scanned the room, landing on his best friend,  and black ranger, Chase. A small smile graced his lips at the sight,  Chase was relaxed back in a computer chair with his feet crossed on the  console.


He had his eyes closed, earphones on and was tapping  along with the beat of whatever song was playing. Riley shook his head  and laughed a little, he couldn't resist the urge to mess with the black  ranger.


He made his way to the console and sat down beside  Chase's feet, snickering to himself he shoved the other boy's feet hard  enough so they landed on the floor.


What happened next was  lighting fast, Chase was out of his chair and on his feet, in Riley's  personal space, with his fist raised ready to punch whoever it was.


Petrified  would be one word to describe the look in the Green Ranger's eyes,  Chase's eyes went wide with realization, he backed up a step, dropping  and opening his fist in order to take his headphones off.


"Damn  Riley!" He cursed, the Green Ranger jumped slightly at the level of the  other's voice. He cast his eyes to the floor and mumbled "Sorry" as if  it was an automatic response.


The Green Ranger jumped off the  console and tried to walk away, but Chase grabbed his forearm and  Riley's breath hitched slightly. 'This is just Chase, breath Riley, he wouldn't hurt you' he had to remind himself.


He turned around to look at the taller boy, whose eyes were softened now. "I could have really hurt you Ry. You can't do stuff like that. I don't want to hurt you" as if begging Riley to understand.


All  the Green Ranger did was give a nod and turn to walk away again, but  was stopped this time by a hand on his shoulder, he winced slightly.


This  didn't go unnoticed by the black ranger, who removed his hand  immediately as if he was burned. He walked around in front of Riley,  raising a questioning eyebrow.


"Just a little sore from the last  fight." He replied smoothly. Chase screwed his face up and tugged the  collar of Riley's shirt down until he could see the part of the shoulder  he had touched.


It was marred with a purple bruise that was  turning yellow and fading slightly. Riley shook him off "It was nothing,  just got my ass kicked in our last fight."he said shrugging.


Nodding Chase got the impression that Riley wasn't going to talk about it. "Want to go for a walk?" He questioned hopefully.


This  was what he and Riley did, they would go for long walks and talk about  life. Riley sighed "Sure let's go." he said giving up.


They walked  down the streets and chatted aimlessly, the tension from earlier  totally forgotten. They stopped for a hotdog from the street vendor, as  chase threw a friendly arm around his shoulders as they walked and  laughed together.


"Riley!" They heard from behind them. Chase felt  his friend go stiff under his arm and effectively slide out of their  embrace, turning on his heel to see who was talking to him.


Chase  turned too to see a blonde-haired, blue-eyed man jogging up to them, he  snuck a glance at Riley and was sure the younger boy was holding his  breath.


He turned back to the intruder and raised his eyebrow in question. "Hey, baby" he put the emphasis on 'baby' and wrapped a possessive arm around Riley, who looked as if he had forced himself to relax.


Both of his eyebrows were now in his hairline. "Baby? Riley, you never told me you batted for that team" he said making a joke, trying to lighten the mood. I did not work.


Riley rolled his eyes at Chase' attempt at humor. 'Hope I don't lose a friend over this..' he thought sadly. Riley finally spoke. "Hey, this is Chase, my coworker, and friend." he said carefully.


Chase  shot him a look "Nice to meet you..." waiting for someone to supply him  with a name. "Eric, this is" Riley struggled for a term "Boyfriend" Eric finished slightly aggressive.


"Nice to meet ya mate" holding out his hand, which Eric ignored, turning his attention back to Riley, "I thought you were at work, baby" you could feel the accusation dripping from the statement.


"We  were just on our lunch break" he supplied smoothly, sending a pleading  glance at Chase. Knowing it was a ranger training day later, Chase  played along.


"Yeah, mate, should be heading back now..." he  replied lamely. Riley nodded, "see you later" he mumbled and tried to  walk away, only to have his wrist grabbed, a little rough if you asked  Chase, and spun around.


Eric gave him an overly dramatic,  possessive, kiss before he let him go, smacking his ass for good  measure. Chase felt bile come up in his throat from the site, not  because it was two guys, oh no.


But because it was Riley being treated like a piece of ass and not a treasured boyfriend like he should be. Yes, he was jealous.


And  yes, Chase should be having the internal crisis about why he felt this  way about his very male best friend and fellow ranger.


Maybe at  first, but now he's done with all that and the only thing left is  acceptance of his feelings. He was jealous, yes, but Chase has a feeling  that there is more to this 'boyfriend' than meets the eye.


'I'll figure all this out, one way or the other' Chase thought as they walked back to get started on their ranger training for the day.
