Disclaimer: I do not own Gundam Wing or the characters of the series. Bandai/Sunrise/Sotsu have that privilege. I am not making _any_ money from this. This story is for entertainment purposes only. I doubt it will even entertain. Please do not sue me, for I am but a poor, unemployed student. Feedback: Much appreciated! C&C is great. NO FLAMES!

Notes: I wrote this for Young Authors, only because my AP teacher will give me extra credit. Ain't nothin' better than AP EC! I hope it's not confusing. It is a little hard to follow, but just remember that it's Duo who is talking throughout the entire story -- no one else -- so you're only hearing half of the conversation. It worked in my head, but if you don't get it, don't worry. My mind is a little freaky.

"Hey! Wufei! Come over here."

"Shhhh! Don't be so loud, dammit."

"Because. I've got a secret to tell you. Promise you won't tell anybody."

"Yes, you have to promise!"

"Pinky swear?"

"Okay, that is kinda stupid. Just promise. Okay?"

"Okay??"

"Alright. Okay, here it is. I'll just come right out and say it. I like somebody -"

"What do you mean you already know?! You have no -"

"How'd you know?"

"Am I that obvious?"

"Well, not that it matters. I don't think he likes me. Actually, I think he can't stand me."

"Why do I think that? Oh, I dunno, maybe it's the way he glares at me every time I open my mouth. Or how he calls me 'baka' -- not as an endearment, mind you -- or how he threatens me with bodily harm at least once a day."

"Well, he does it mostly to me. And besides, he's got that girl, so why would he want me? I've got nothing to offer a guy like -"

"What was that?"

"Tell me one time you've caught him looking at me."

"Breakfast? Today? Hmph. Probably plotting how to kill me with the least amount of necessary cleanup."

"...Really? Well, what kind of stuff does _he_ tell you?"

"Oh, don't give me that 'It's a secret' crap! Tell me! Please! Tellmetellmetellme!"

"Ya know, 'Fei, you are really no fun at all. You're supposed to tell secrets!"

"Well, where I come from you do!"

"No, it's not an American thing. Is it a Chinese thing to have a stick up your ass at all times?"

"I still think you should tell me. And ya know what else -"

"Huh? He's coming this way?! Okay, okay, just act cool. And don't say a word about what I said or I'll -"

"Hiya, Heero! How ya doin'?"

"That's great. I've just been talking to -"

"Where'd he go? I wonder why he walked off like that. Guess I'll have to go find him..."

"Huh? Why do we have to be alone?"

"Well, what do ya want to talk to me about? I'm not much to talk to, really. I just tend to babble on and on and on...It's pretty much pointless chatter, just like you always say, so you don't really need to -"

"Yes, I can keep a secret!"

"You like somebody? Oh. Tha-that's great, Heero. Really great. I'm happy for you. I've gotta run..."

"Well, of course we're finished here. You've already told me your -"

"Well, I guess I'm curious. But you don't have to tell me, really. Not if you don't want to."

"You do? Alright. Tell me."

"..."

"...Come again?"

"...One more time. I don't think I understood you."

"..."

"Wait! Don't go! I-I'm sorry, you just caught me off guard, that's all. I...really wasn't expecting that."

"Well, I...It's just that, well, I thought you hated me. I -"

"Because you always yell at me. And you think I'm stupid. And...well, there's that girl..."

"You don't? Why? She's got everything you need! She's rich and beautiful and...everything that I'll never be..."

"I said that she's everything that I'll never be!"

"That's why you want me? Really? But I could've sworn -"

"No, I'm not trying to talk you out of it! I just can't believe this is happening to me. It's quite...amazing."

"No, I'm not going to cry."

"Oh, that? I just got something in my eye...Okay, so maybe I am going to cry."

"Yes, they're happy tears, dummy!"

"Why? Maybe it's because I've been dreaming about this for, oh, about a year."

"I don't believe that."

"Well, you certainly were good at hiding it. And for a whole year!"

"Apology accepted. Of course, a hug would be nice..."

"Yep. Hugs are definitely good. Especially from you."

"..."

"Yep. Kisses are infinitely better than hugs. How about a few more? After all, you've got a whole year to make up for."
