‘Otherside’ Version 2

“How long how long will I slide
Separate my side I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat
It’s all I ever”

Duo hastily packed his small bag, his tears falling onto the bed, shoulders shaking from the sobs. Fierce yelling penetrated the small apartment he and his lover lived at. He ran to the closet and started throwing clothes towards his bag, openly crying from the verbal bashing he was receiving. Finally after an entire year, Duo had enough of the emotional abuse. //Why is this happening to me?//

“I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up it brought of the past
Once you know you can never go back
I’ve got to take it on the otherside
Centuries are what it meant to me”

He looked at the only photograph he kept over the years, the taxi was on its way to the shuttleport. “Heero” He whispered the name in prayer.

“A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I’ve got to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on“

Heero stared out the window from his office. His life had become monotonous after the war. He went to school and received his degree for computer technology. Now he was the leading man for a prominent company, yet his eyes were filled with a deep sorrow. He could feel the void grow larger within himself.

“How long how long will I slide
Separate my side I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat
It’s all I ever”

The only ornament on his plain desk was a photo of Duo and himself, taken at one of the many schools they infiltrated during the war. Just thinking of the lost Duo brought a gut wrenching pain to his heart, the sorrow in his eyes intensified a thousand fold. //Where are you//. He traced the outlines with his finger.

“Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray’s full and I’m spillin’ my guts
She wants to know am I still a slut
I’ve got to take it on the otherside
Scarlet starlet and she’s in my bed
A candidate for my soul mate bled”

Duo looked down at his hands, all he saw was red. The blood of so many others were on his hands. Their ghosts were haunting him in his depression. The empty bottle of whiskey sat on the table. He picked up the gun, and pointed it towards his temple. He pulled the trigger, but nothing happened. He threw it across the room, sobs racking his body once again as his mind spiraled into oblivion.

“Push the trigger and pull the thread
I’ve got to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on"

Heero walked down the street, it was desolate. Not much went on at three in the morning. He sighed and continued walking, trying in vain to forget about Duo even for a few hours. He turned to glare at the person that ran into him, but when he saw who it was he froze in place.

“How long how long will I slide
Separate my side I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat
It’s all I ever “

“Duo? Is that you?” Heero was still in shock, after so long he finally saw his beloved. After looking at him closely, he realized that Duo was in bad shape. “Duo, what happened to you?” Heero was not expecting Duo to throw himself into his arms and start crying into his shoulder, his arms encircled the other boy before pulling him into his arms and carrying him back to his apartment.

“Turn me on take me for a hard ride
Burn me out leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that
It’s not my friend
I tear it down I tear it down
And then it’s born again”

Duo thrashed in the bed, his body covered in sweat. The nightmares came back, not only from the war but from the Maxwell Church and before. His past was coming back to remind him that it was still there, waiting to devour him in its darkness. His screams of sheer panic and helplessness filled the room. Heero came running in, what he saw pierced his heart. He ran to the other’s side and tried to wake him, but could not. Duo was wildly thrashing around the bed, whimpering, moaning in pain, screaming in terror. The nightmares would not relent.

“How long will I slide
Separate my side I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat
It’s all I ever”

Heero was on the bed beside Duo trying to coax him from the creature invading his sleep, he tried everything he could think of. ‘Please wake up Duo, come back from the otherside. Come back to me, Onegai Ai shiteru’ He bowed his head in shame. He felt he had failed again, failed the only person that matter to him.

“How long I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat
It’s all I ever”

Duo heard Heero’s words from the darkness of his nightmare, he fought will all his might trying to break free. The shattering sounds of sobs, that were not his own, threatened to crush him, the fought the bonds harder. He knew he had something waiting for him on the otherside. He could feel himself break free from the demons of the past, he slowly opened his eyes and saw Heero hanging his head, almost in shame. He saw a single tear fall from his eye and fall onto the blanket. He reached out and to touch the tear streaked cheek.

Heero jumped at the contact on his shoulder, he looked up and saw Duo awake. “Duo?” He didn’t care what the other thought, he pulled him into his arms and hugged him so tight, he was afraid of losing him again. “Heero?” He looked down at Duo, hearing the question. “How long will I slide? I’m tired of catching myself” Duo looked down, he showed Heero the faded scars on his wrists “slit my throat it’s all I ever..” He was silenced by Heero’s kiss. Duo’s was overwhelmed by the sheer passion and emotion. He finally found what he was looking for.

Heero broke the kiss, “Duo I’m so sorry about what happened in the past. Stay with me, we can get over it all together. I love you. I am nothing without you, please don’t say it is over” He managed to choke out before his own emotions overcame him. Duo laid back on the bed and pulled Heero on top of him, “Please show me what it feels like to be loved.” Slowly Heero removed Duo’s clothing, showing him with actions just how much he loved him. Soon his clothes were thrown across the room as well.

Duo moaned as Heero slowly pushed past his tight entrance, the hands clasped together while the kissed each other. For the first time he felt the act of love, rather than lust. Heero moved slowly within Duo, wanting him to enjoy every moment of their union. Duo allowed his heart to show through his eyes, wanting Heero to know exactly what he was feeling.

Heero started to thrust faster and deeper, unable to stop the beginnings of his orgasm. One hand left Duo’s to encircle the rock hard arousal trapped between their bodies. Duo came yelling Heero’s name. Heero thrusted twice before he gave in and his seed shot into Duo. Slowly and carefully he pulled out and laid next to his lover. Duo allowed himself to be pulled closer to Heero. They laid there for quite sometime, neither wanting to break the moment. “Thank You Heero, for bringing me back from the otherside” He kissed his lover once more before snuggling deeper into Heero’s arms and falling into a peaceful sleep. Heero pulled the covers over them and turned off the light, “Ai shiteru” he whispered before joining his koi in the land of dreams.

“How long how long will I slide

I don’t believe it’s bad”

Owari.

*scratches head* Well, that was not what I expected to write. I actually thought this would be a PWP, but that damn sneaky plot just slipped in there, tiny yes but still there. So Shi-chan, Minna How was that version? C&C, Onegai?
