"I Learned From the Best"

Duo walked into his apartment that he shared with his lover, Hilde. Things were going good, at least he thought they would. Wanting nothing but a long shower and some sleep, he went straight to the bed room. Opening the door, his world crumbled before his eyes. Hilde was in bed with another man. Flooded with feelings, he stood in shock looking at the two curled together on the bed, his and her bed. Swallowing the lump, he walked in the room quietly, got his back and packed. Upon hearing the suitcase close, Hilde woke up. Seeing the rope of hair leaving the room, she sprung up from the bed and ran after him. Frantically trying to explain what had happened, but he didn't listen. Two tears ran down his cheek and he left with four words. "You've shattered my heart".

************************************

Duo shook his head, ridding himself of those bad memories. It had been six months since he'd seen her last. Looking into the mirror he took off to the stage.

{Did you really think that
I would really take you back
Let you back in my heart
One more time, oh, no no

Did you think I'd still care
That there'd be more feeling there
Did you think you could walk back
In my life, oh }

Hilde was thrilled to get a call from Duo. He had become a small singer around L2, and he invited her for this special performance. Things fell apart with her other lover, and she realized what she lost in Duo. Trying for the last two months to get him back. //Finally, maybe tonight will be the night I get him back// She sat in the front row seat he reserved for her. As the music began, she intently listened. Hearing the first few lines, she reeled back as if struck with a mighty fist.

{So you found you missed the love you threw away
Baby, but you found it out too late, too late

Duo saw Hilde right in the middle of the front row. //Maybe this will get through her thick skull//

{And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
And baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best, I learned from you
oh baby, now, I learned from you

I remember cold nights
Tears I thought would never dry
How you shattered my world
With your goodbye, your goodbye }

Duo fought the tears stinging his eyes. He remembered the cold emptiness his life had become since she betrayed him. Throwing in mild disgust in his voice, he continued to sing straight to Hilde, who looked like she was going to cry. //Maybe now you'll understand how it feels//

{Would a sold my soul then
Just to have you back again
Now you are the last thing on my mind

Now you say you're sorry and you've
Changed your ways
Sorry but you changed your ways too late
And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
And baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best, I learned from you
oh baby, now, I learned from you

I remember cold nights
Tears I thought would never dry
How you shattered my world
With your goodbye, your goodbye }

Hilde sat in her seat in shock. She couldn't believe what was happening, he was refusing her. Didn't he know he was her life?? Letting the tears fall down her face, she thought about what she did back then.

{Would a sold my soul then
Just to have you back again
Now you are the last thing on my mind

Now you say you're sorry and you've
Changed your ways
Sorry but you changed your ways too late
And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
And baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best, I learned from you
oh baby, now, I learned from you
So when all you've got are sleepless night
When those tears are clouding up your eyes
Just remember it was you
Who said goodbye, who said goodbye

And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
And baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best, I learned from you
oh baby, now, I learned from you

I learned from the best
I learned from you }

After the music faded, the figure disappeared from the stage. Hilde got up tears still streaking her face. //I'm sorry Duo, I ruined it for us both// She walked away forever. Unknown to both of them, a pair of cobalt blue eyes watched everything. With a small smile of relief, Heero got up and left the building. //I still have a chance, and this time I will not let you slip away from me//
