Kiss and Tell
Yesterday had been my weekly get-together with Relena, and has been routine now for almost a year. We caught up on each other's lives, shared our woes, complained about the weather, and discussed our respective boyfriends.
Nothing out of the ordinary. That is, until she asked me one of the strangest questions I'd ever heard.
*"So tell me, Heero. What do his kisses taste like?"
"Yes," she sighed, throwing her golden hair over one shoulder. "What do they taste like?"
"What do Edward's kisses taste like?"(1)
"Cinnamon and sugar," she replied and then looked at me with her big blue eyes. "Well?"
"Duo's kisses... They taste like..."*
Trepidation struck a cord when I realized that I had no idea what Duo's kisses tasted like. I had always been overwhelmed by the simple fact that Duo-the beautiful person that he is-*wanted me*. Compared to that, my being worried over something as trivial as the taste of a kiss was ridiculous.
But Relena had answered with such conviction, and that smile, by God that smile lit up the *entire* room. Maybe the flavor of Duo's kisses were just as important as everything else about him.
He *is* the universe.
So I promised Relena that the next time we met I'd have her answer.

My lover was currently sprawled on the couch, remote in hand, and watching his favorite comedy. His mouth opened in a wide smile, pristine teeth showing, and smooth lips stretched taut. Suddenly, Relena's odd question echoed in my head. "Mission accepted." I put away the last clean plate and joined Duo in the living room.
"Hey baby," he greeted as I neared him and immediately pulled me down to sit at his side. "Want to watch something?"
Incredible violet eyes completely focused on me, and I shook my head "no" to hide my smile. It never ceased pleasing me, how he would stop everything he was doing-even if he was enjoying it-to focus on me. On us.
Instead of answering I straddled his lap and buried my hands in his unbound hair. The fact that it was out of its customary plait was not overlooked. His comfort and security are displayed in the simplest of ways. I met his eyes which were full of curiosity and a little bit of surprise. "Heero?"
"Relena asked me what your kisses tasted like," I murmured, glancing down at his smiling mouth.
"Oh really now?" He chuckled and I licked my lips in anticipation of what was about to come. "What did you tell her Majesty?"
"That I didn't know." I pressed closer to that warm body. "But that I'd find out," and promptly sealed my lips to his.
It was closed, gentle, but much more than a peck. The sharp, sweet rushing of his love always swept me away. I said the first thing that came to mind. "That tasted like the wind."
Duo hummed. "The wind? Heero... that doesn't have a flavor..." With one hand he pulled me even closer and with the other he cupped my cheek, running his thumb across my bottom lip. "Let's try that again."
There was a gentle gliding of lips and tongue; smooth, rhythmic, and soft until its crescendo into a torrent which was oh, so hot. Duo guided our mouths back down to soft caresses and then back up again. After a few minutes he released me, panting and eyes ablaze.
I whispered, "like the rain...."
This time Duo only smiled before crushing our lips together in a passionate kiss. He plundered my mouth like a man starved as his hands roamed beneath my shirt. Something deep inside spread its gigantic wings and soared up into my throat, threatening to steal away my very breath. My blood began to sing. It felt like every cell in my body was alive and vibrating. Passion and desire melted my bones, ripped my heart apart, and put them all back together again.
"*Oh God!*" I moaned, feeling the beginnings of my erection. Duo slid his hot lips up the side of my neck and gently nipped at my ear.
"And that one?" His voice was hoarse as he grabbed my hips and thrust up making his own arousal known. "What did that one taste like, baby?"
"Like lightning," I whimpered before I surrendered myself to the devastating force that was Duo Maxwell.

It was Tuesday again and I found myself walking into a cozy looking coffee house. I spotted my blond friend in a corner, messing with her hair yet again, and sipping out of a rather large mug. I quickly made my way toward her. "Hi Lena," I greeted with a smile.
"Heero!" She smirked suddenly behind a dainty hand. "I can tell you've kept your promise."
At first I had no clue about what she was referring to, but the events of the past week came rushing back in a flood. "Oh yes. My promise..." I closed my eyes and recalled everything. The question. The kisses. The long night of intense love making that followed.
I felt the heat rise to my cheeks but smiled nonetheless. I was sure that my answer was not the one expected, but with all things Duo it was a bit out of the ordinary, but special and it just felt *right*. I had whispered my discovery to my lover, tangled in our sheets, as the morning sun crept through our window. My mind's eye was filled with the vision of his smiling face and shining eyes.
"You are such a tease Heero! Tell me already," Relena prompted, pout in place.
My smile had to have split my face.
"Duo's kisses taste like a summer storm."
1. Edward is Relena's boyfriend. *shrugs* Sounded dignified enough for someone to date the Queen of the World, no?
I hope you liked this little fic. I really enjoyed writing it. With Heero, there are just so many possibilities. *smiles* Feedback is encouraged and welcomed with open arms!
