spoilers: you're kidding....right?
pairings: 2+1, 1X1, 2X2, 2X1 it's heero and duo, folks. do i ever write anything else?!?!
notes: my muses took off on this one. i'm trying to keep them in character as much as possible given the obvious total rewrite of their pasts. this was *supposed* to be another PWP, but it took on a life of its own and ended up to be fairly long and i'm pretty sure it's not a pwp anymore, but i'm unable to put my finger on exactly what it is. *sweatdrops* it is also the first time i've attempted to write a fic where heero and duo are NOT heero and duo... meaning there was no warand that they grew up having lived relatively normal lives; very much unlike their soldier counterparts. it is also my first attempt at a strict 2X1.

summary: heero and duo are both 20 and in college and it is summertime. they don't know each other.. but they will.

Mercury Rising
Part 14


I'm not sure if I'd actually fallen asleep but I was definitely on the precipice. The movement of the bed startled me and I opened my eyes to find Duo seated beside me. "That was great, Heero." His unexpected praise was spoken almost reverently. He reached forward and placed his hand on my knee, separating my legs which had fallen to my side and ran his hand upward on the inside of my thigh; stopping just short of where I thought it was headed.

He took my hand in his and brought it to his reawakened arousal; making me question how long I'd been lying there. "Mmm..... I'm hard again." he whispered, wrapping my fingers around his erection. I grasped it more firmly and he removed his hand; climbing over my one leg to seat himself between the two and spreading them further apart. I watched as he leaned forward to slide his fingers over my chest and through the evidence of my orgasm; guiding them downward and slipping two of them inside me. My cock responded favorably to his touch and I pushed down to allow his fingers fully to penetrate me. "More...." I moaned loudly.

He added another, but what I really wanted was him inside of me. I decided to tell him. "Duo... please..."

Well... almost tell him.

He looked up at me; twisting and driving his fingers still deeper. "Please what, Heero? Please fuck you?" I nodded and he slid his digits out; removing my hand from his erection before bringing himself up onto his knees. "You know how much I want to."

I was ready, he was ready; I didn't understand what the problem was. "Then what are you waiting for?" It came out as almost a growl.

"I'm trying to decide how I want to take you." His eyes focused on mine as his hand moved slowly over his abdomen, gathering his cum then dropped down to coat his cock with it.

I hadn't given much thought to this particular aspect of having sex with Duo. I was aware from exploring the net since we'd become lovers that there were seemingly endless possibilities. For some reason, I'd just figured we'd do it missionary style our first time. I don't know why I assumed that; but I did... I should have known better.

"Get up onto your hands and knees."

I moved toward the center of the bed and into position quickly, feeling his warmth and hardness behind me almost immediately. He nudged my legs further apart with his knee and placed the palm of his hand in the center of my back, forcing my upper body down into the mattress. "Ass nice and high, Heero."

He moaned as I lifted my hips up; kneading the both cheeks roughly. He placed his cock at my entrance and moved forward to let just the head enter me; much too slowly for my liking. I pushed back; taking another inch or two of him inside. He slid his hands upward, taking firm hold of my hips. I could feel myself opening; stretching taut to admit him, but it wasn't exactly pain... or maybe it was; just pleasurable pain. All I could think of was how good it must feel to have him fully buried in me. "Nnnn... All the way in, Duo. I can handle it."

I heard him let out a hiss behind me and his hands tightened their already rough grip. "You are so fucking tight.", he ground out.

I think he thought that tight was a good thing; I think I would have if the situation were reversed. I toyed with the idea of making some reference to the size of his cock, but thought better of it. "Is that a complaint?"

"Nnn.... No!" He pushed forward and in one swift movement entered me fully. I gasped as he did so, almost loud enough to drown out his moan. "Stay still, Heero.", he warned.

I was too busy processing the myriad of new sensations to even think about moving. I lowered my head and began to pant; trying to slow down my accelerated heart rate. His hand moved lightly over the soft flesh of my hips and traveled inward from there, gently caressing my lower back. "Tell me when you're ready."

As soon as he'd finished speaking I replied. "I've been ready. Just do it."

I could almost see the smirk on his face as I felt him pull almost all the way out. I shivered in that one second I waited for him to enter me again. The force of the impact took me by surprise and I braced myself this time as I felt him slide out; crying out as he slammed into me once more. "Unhh....... jeezus, Duo!!!!"

"Jeezus, Duo what?" he growled.

I hoped he didn't expect me to answer him; especially since I wasn't sure if I was asking him to stop or asking for more.

He slowed his movements. "What, Heero? More? Or do you want me to stop?"

I added mind reading to his already impressive, yet still growing resume. He'd almost completely stilled now, making it easier for me to clarify exactly what it was that I wanted from him. "More, Duo..." I whimpered; sighing in relief as he began thrusting into me again. I pushed back against him now each time he entered me, needing every inch of his thick length inside me.

"Mmm..... that's perfect, Heero." he whispered, "Feels good, doesn't it?"

Good was a gross understatement. It was unlike anything I'd experienced up until now and even surpassed the intensity of my fantasies. I did the only thing I was capable of doing well at the moment; pleading with him to give me what my body craved. "Harder, Duo!!!"

"Oh yeah... as hard as you want it." The words came out as a low growl as he made his words reality.

Each time his body slammed against mine, I could feel myself climbing higher. I never wanted it to end; at the same time needing to find what I was certain was going to be a mind-blowing orgasm. I reached down in between my legs and began stroking my cock in time with his thrusts. "Unh....... any second now!" I screamed.

Duo changed the angle of my hips and rammed into me with a grunt; striking my prostate. "Oh God.. DUO!!" His breathing indicated that he was nearly ready to come. His voice was loud, but incoherent; I think he was urging me to climax with each forceful thrust he made into me. Whether he was or he wasn't; I was unable to delay the onset of my orgasm and I stroked myself faster with one hand while the other tightly gripped the sheets.

I felt all ten of his fingers gouging the flesh at either side of my hips as I screamed out his name in a voice I didn't recognize as my own. My entire body shuddered and I lowered my head to watch my cock twitch and christen the bed linens as Duo continued pounding me from behind in search of his release. It wasn't long before he found it and sealed himself against me as climaxed inside me, nearly howling as the pleasure took him.


I vaguely recall the discomfort as he withdrew; collapsing and then feeling Duo tumble down on top of me. I don't know how long we remained like that before he rolled off of me and onto the bed beside me. His hand caress the side of my face. "You are going to be very sore, Heero." He said it with almost a chuckle. I groaned into the mattress; he was right. I remember feeling his weight leaving the bed and heard him humming as he crossed the room. I don't recall much after that until I felt his hand on my shoulder and his voice calling my name. "Heero...."

I rolled over and looked up at him as he stood beside the bed.

"Go get cleaned up." I glanced down at myself and back up at Duo. "Yeah."

He assisted me in standing; which was a good thing as my body had yet to fully wake. He followed me into the bathroom. "I ran you a hot bath. It'll help."

He didn't need to explain it any further. "Thanks."

He winked at me and exited the room; closing the door behind him.

I wasted no time sinking into the hot water; letting out a huge moan as the warmth instantly began its task of soothing my aching body. I couldn't help but smile as I thought about what had just happened. I settled back against the warmed porcelain and closed my eyes; sex with Duo was certainly not a disappointment.... though my body might have otherwise disagreed.


I remained in the tub until the temperature of the water dropped and no longer provided me any additional relief. I dried myself off after soaking for what I'm guessing was about 20 minutes and returned to the bedroom with only a small towel wrapped around my waist.

Duo was already in bed and had just a sheet drawn over what I could easily see was his curled up form. He was facing the opposite wall and I was unable to tell whether he was still awake or had fallen asleep.

I let the towel drop to the floor and reached down for my bathing suit and was stepping into it when I felt Duo's hand on mine. I looked up at him in surprise. Although he didn't speak, I understood the question in his eyes and let my trunks fall to the floor; climbing into bed beside him and sliding my body beneath the sheet. I lay there for a second or two; finding this to be more awkward than anything that had taken place between us so far.

I remained on my back with my hands tucked under my head and as far from him as I could get; watching as he reached to turn out the light before redirecting my attention back up at the ceiling.

Propping himself up one elbow, he looked over at the clock on the nightstand beside me and groaned. "Man, I'm going to be a ficking zimbie tomorrow." [10]

I turned sharply to face him. I couldn't have heard that right. "What?"

He looked at me and flashed me a grin. "I said it's almost 4:00. We should get some sleep."

I shook my head. "That's not what you said."

"It's close enough." He rolled over onto his side to face me; reaching up under my head to take my hand in his and brought them down with fingers entwined to lie on the mattress between us. " Night, Heero."


I closed my eyes; knowing that sleep wasn't coming anytime soon.
