Author's Notes: The next story in the Learning Curves series. I think that there is one more in a notebook. I'm in the process of moving... again... but I'll look for it when I find all my writing notebooks again.
The challenge was to write a 500 word fic with learning/teaching being the topic. Each of these chapters is 500 words, being separate fics on their own. The final one will equal the number of words in the other chapters.

Silence stretched through the living quarters of X-Force’s base. Everyone was gathered outside, enjoying the slightly cooler weather. Except for Julio. Julio had taken the opportunity to write some letters. He sat on his bed, reading the last letter his grandmother had written him.

A knock sounded before the soft “Julio?”

“Come in, amigo.” He folded the letter up and reached off the bed to his dresser for some paper.

Gaveedra shut the door behind him. “Julio, I have a question,” he stated quietly.

“Shoot.” He grabbed a sheet of paper, managing to drop it in the process.

“Julio?” Confused.

“Ask the question, Gav.”

“What is french kissing?”

Surprised, Julio lost his balance and crashed to the floor. “Fuck,” he hissed. Leaning back against the edge of the bed, he looked up to Gaveedra’s curious features. “What do you mean ‘what is french kissing?’”

Gaveedra thought for a moment, looked puzzled then finally answered. “What is it? I heard Cannonball and Boomer-“

“Wait a minute, you heard Sam and Tabs talking about french kissing? Dios.” He ran a hand back through his hair, brushing the shoulder length locks away from his face.

“I do not see what is wrong with that, Julio. They were not talking about sex.” Gaveedra walked over and sat down next to him. “Tell me what it is, Julio.”

He sighed and shook his head.

“Julio.” He gave his friend an even stare, demanding an answer. “I will not believe you if you say you don’t know.”

“Alright. It’s a type of kiss.” He tried to be vague. Explaining the mechanics of a kiss was not on Julio’s list of ‘favorite things to do with Gaveedra’.

“Like we kiss?”

Julio could tell Gaveedra was confused. “No. It’s different... more...” he searched for the word, “tongue.”

Still confused, Gav played with the end of his hair. After a short while, he asked, “How?”

Julio squirmed. “Gav...”

“I want to know.”

“Damnit, Gav.” He blushed. “It’s a type of kiss. Lips and tongue.”

In all seriousness, Gaveedra looked at Julio and said, “Show me.”

Julio blushed deeper. “They do it in movies all the time. Go watch TV.”

Gaveedra shifted until he sat facing Julio. “Show me, please?”

Studying his friend, he nodded shyly. “It’s a kiss, you just open your mouth... and...” He made a gesture, not finding any words to explain it with. “I’ll just show you.”

Julio scooted closer to Gav, reaching out to tangle his fingers in the long red-blond hair. “Just, kiss me like always.”

Gav leaned forward and pressed his lips to Julio’s, relaxing into the easy play of lips. Julio slid his tongue over Gav’s, asking him to part his lips. Gaveedra slowly complied, closing his eyes as he felt Julio’s tongue gently sweep past his lips.

Julio straddled Gav’s lap, getting closer as Gaveedra began kissing him back. It was a cumbersome kiss, inexperienced. Julio pulled away, “That answer your question mi amor?”

Gaveedra smiled. “Yes, now kiss me again.”
