Life Rules: First Date
by comet (cometsmind@earthlink.net)


Duo was nervous. Very nervous. And Wufei was finding it all highly amusing as he watched his friend pace back and forth. He could finally no longer stop himself from laughing. He laughed even harder when Duo rounded stopped pacing to stare at him. "I'm not paying if you pace a whole in out carpet."

"This isn't funny, Wu."

"Of course it is," Wufei smiled. "Relax. You wanted him to ask you out, right?"


"And he did?"


"And you've changed clothes four times now?"

"Yes." Duo paused. "Do I look okay?"

Wufei laughed again. "You look just fine, now and the last dozen times you've asked. Relax. Heero is probably just as nervous."

Duo sat down, "You think?" he questioned, then waved it away with his hand. "Heero's not the type...you think?"

A knock at the door saved Wufei from answering. He left his friend to fret a moment longer as he moved towards the door to let Heero in.

Heero looked up as the door opened and seemed to relax a little when he saw it was Wufei.

Wufei almost laughed again, instead he called out to Duo, "Duo, you're date is here and he's just as nervous as you are."

"I am not," both Duo and Heero said.

"Whatever," Wufei said, moving to sit back at the table and his homework. "But you two better relax or you might end up shooting the poor refreshment guy at the movies."
