[Come stop your crying
It'll be alright
Just take my hand
Hold it tight]
Duo's heart ached, he was sure that Heero felt the same as him. Yet, the proof was in front of his eyes: Heero had Relena. What had ever made Duo think that he had a chance with the Japanese pilot, he didn't know.
"Baka!" He yelled at himself, "Of course you don't have a chance! Baka! Bakabakabakabaka! Duo no baa!" Unyelding tears ran down his cheeks. If some one saw they'd say something, but Duo didn't care. He refused to care, his world had shattered around him. The one person that he felt anything more than friendship for was not his for the taking. He already had someone that he reciprocated the feeling for. Relena. 'Damn her!' he thought.
"Duo?" someone was calling his name. He didn't care. He was to deep in his sorrow to care.
He felt strong hands on his shoulders. Then he was being forced to look up into... cobalt eyes. 'Cobalt eyes? What the-?'
"Heero? Wha--" he ducked his head back down, not wanting Heero to see that he had been -- was crying.
"Duo, why are you crying?" Heero said, a touch of concern and gentleness in his voice, "What's wrong... Duo?"
"Eh, n-nothing... Just tired..."
"Tired? No, you're not tired, something's wrong. Tell me," Heero's voice commanded the truth.
'Since when did he learn to read me this well... Well if you are unhappy looking, dolt, he should know something is wrong...' Duo told himself.
"I --" Duo looked up into understanding blue eyes and he didn't need to say anything more.
Heero offered Duo his hand, Duo tentatively took it, "Don't cry..." he told the violet-eyed boy, gently, "Duo, please tell me what it is that upset you..."
"Relena," Duo spoke the name in a loathing tone.
"Aa, what about her upset you?"
"I -- I saw you and her..." he stopped, he couldn't bear the thought. Tears began to trickle their way down his cheeks again. He looked up into Heero's eyes willing the other to understand. Heero did.
Heero gently -- 'There's that word again, since when is Heero described as gentle?' -- brushed the tears off Duo's cheeks. He leaned down and kissed the corners of Duo's eyes. He smiled as Duo's eyes went wide at this intimate gesture.
"Don't cry..." Heero said again.
[I will protect you
from all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry]
Heero wrapped his arms around the slender frame of his violet-eyed angel. Duo stiffened at the contact, then relaxed into the embrace. After an eternity, Heero spoke.
"Relena means nothing to me, she is just a friend. I was telling her about --" he stopped.
"But she and you hugged, close..." Duo said as he looked up at Heero.
"I won't tell you..." Duo looked stricken, "I'll show you..."
"What?" Duo looked confused, and Heero took the opportunity to close one those tempting lips. He kissed him passionately. After a second of shock Duo responded and kissed back with equal, if not stronger, passionate need.
"I'll be here, I'll protect you... I love you," Heero said breathlessly when they broke, "So don't cry..."
Duo just nodded, his knees were weak from the passionate exchange. They just stood there in each others arms for a very long time. Heero was the one to break the silence.
"I was asking her about how to tell you, she was happy that I had found someone," Heero told him.
"She was happy that you found someone else?" Duo was stunned.
"She got over me, she is engaged to some Count or something, and she is happy," Heero told him.
[For one so small,
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
keep you safe and warm
The bond between us
can't be broken
I will be there
Don't you cry]
They sat on the park bench, just enjoying being together. After a while, Duo fell asleep. Heero watched the boy sleep, then he picked him up and carried him back to the safehouse.
Quatre greeted him at the door. "Konban wa, Heero--" then he noticed the sleeping boy in his possession. He nodded and moved to allow Heero entry.(1)
Heero carried Duo to their room. He laid the boy on the bed.(2) The moonlight played over the elfin boy. Duo looked more like a creature of Fairy, an enchanted being, sleeping peacefully with out his mouth running non-stop.
Heero laid down on the bed beside Duo and wrapped his arms around him. Duo curled against him, their bodies fit together like to pieces of a puzzle, molding together. Duo stirred and turned to look at him.
"Hi, Heero..." Duo looked kinda confused as to what Heero was doing in his bed.
Heero responded to the unasked question by wrapping his arms tighter around Duo's waist and kissing him sweetly. Duo almost sounded like he was purring as he went back to sleep in Heero's protective embrace.
"I don't like to see you cry..." Heero said as he drifted off to sleep.
['Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more]
Heero got up, reluctantly. He began typing away on the computer. He heard Duo stir, he turned to watch the display of cat-like grace.
Duo slowly reached his arms above his head and his back arched as he stretched. Heero smiled as he watched. Duo slowly cracked one eye.
"Ohayo, Duo..." Heero said as the boy looked around not finding his love where he'd last seen him. Duo looked over at him and scowled.
"On that damn computer again..."
"Not anymore," Heero got up from the computer and walked over to the bed. He sat down and placed a passionate kiss on soft lips. He wrapped his arms around the lithe boy and Duo melted in his arms.
Heero proceeded to pull Duo's sleep shirt, then his own clothing. He remove the tie that held Duo's hair in place...
They lay together, completely sated, a mass of sweaty limbs and hair.
"I love you, Duo..." Heero told the boy curled up at his side.
"Mmm..." Duo purred in his sleep. Heero couldn't help but smile at the sweet, peaceful, angelic face of his beloved, now lover.
[You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here
in my heart always]
Heero and Duo walked out of the room, Duo chattering away as usual, but for some odd reason, Heero seemed to be responding more. Quatre found this odd, and a little more than disturbing.
"Ohayo, Duo, Heero," Quatre said as they entered the kitchen.
"Ohayo!" Duo chirped.
"Ohayo," Heero said, which startled the whole group, all but Duo.
"Yuy, are you feeling alright?" Wufei asked, Heero glared at him.
Duo was bouncing over to the buffet to get his breakfast. Heero followed him. Duo had his plate piled full with pancakes and sausage. He began to bounce back over to the table when he slid on the rug. Heero dropped his plate and caught the boy before he hit the ground. The room was silent, except for Duo thanking Heero for catching him.
Wufei just gawked, his jaw about his knees; Trowa looked almost surprised. Quatre giggled, "Duo-kun, are you alright?"
"Aa, thanks to Heero," Duo smiled and looked at the glaring pilot. Duo turned to look at what Heero was glaring at. Duo's smile faltered as he caught the others' expressions. He began to take a step forward and explain when Heero placed a possessive hand around his waist that explained it all.
Quatre spoke first, "So... what is on the agenda for today?"
(1) Don't be hentai, this is Quatre in a 1x2 fic!
(2) Don't go there! This is not a lemon!
