Chapter 3
Author's Note: Takes place during 1x21 (The Undertaking). Some dialogue borrowed from episode.

Tommy descended the steps into Oliver's lair. Not the club's basement, but the Hood's lair. His boyfriend's lair?

He was surprised that Felicity wasn't at the computers when he reached them, and followed his ears to where Oliver was beating up a training dummy. Shirtless, once again. He stood there for a moment to appreciate the way Oliver's muscles rippled and flexed as he repeated the same forms over and over again against the dummy.

Oliver suddenly took a step back and turned to face Tommy, a light sheen of sweat covering his face and torso.

"Some people would consider it rude to stare," he pointed out, trying to keep a straight face.

"Some people deserve to be stared at," Tommy countered, licking his lips.
