Duo was finally satisfied with how clean he was, not to mention his hair, and lifted himself out of the water. Heero followed right behind him, and then suddenly grabbed onto his wet clinging mass.

"Heero! I'm clean enough! If I stay in the water any longer I'll turn into a prune!"

Forgetting he was still as naked as the day he was born, Duo began to walk to the village. Heero still had a hold of his hair, which perplexed the foreigner. He turned around to glare, but stopped when he noticed that Heero was combing his fingers through his wet locks.

"Wannay-pet." Heero murmured, still stroking Duo's hair.

"Excuse me?" Duo blinked. "Did you say `pet'?"

Heero looked like he was blushing, "Wannay-pet."

"Go ahead, pet it all you want," Duo grinned, "But I'm starving! Is there anything around here that's considered breakfast?" Duo sighed. He knew that Heero couldn't understand him. He watched for a while as Heero continued to run his fingers through his hair, untangling it for him. He smiled, "Well, back to hand signals."

Duo finally got Heero's attention, and rubbed at his stomach, indicating that he was hungry. Heero's eyes widened as if he were horrified by the fact that he kept Duo hungry for so long. He grabbed Duo by his hand and dragged him back to their hut. Duo blushed just a bit, suddenly remembering that they were both still naked and they were, in fact, streaking through the village. Not that he was embarrassed by his looks, he was just feeling the heavy eyes on them and it made him feel like he was breaking the law.

Duo did notice, however, that when they passed by Adila's hut, she was red as a beet. Some of the other girls in the village were smiling and waving at the pale skinned man. Duo waved back, trying not to seem embarrassed at all.

Heero looked like he was glaring at everyone who ogled his concubine. Once they got to Heero's hut, now both of theirs, Heero halted at the sight of Trowa. Either being chivalrous or possessive, Heero shielded Duo's body with his own. Trowa looked at them both with a raised eyebrow and smirked.

"I see you're back." He said in English first, and then in Heero's native language. Heero nodded but stayed where he was. Duo peeked over Heero's shoulder, wondering what the hold up was. Trowa smiled at the longhaired man, "And I see that you forgot your clothes."

"Um… well…" Duo faltered, "the thing is… uh, I told Heero that I was hungry so he just rushed me back here and I didn't have time to grab my stuff and…"

"That's ok. You can borrow a pair of my shorts." Trowa grabbed his green and white striped boxers and handed them to Duo.

Duo blinked in astonishment, and then slowly took the shorts from the green-eyed translator. "Th-thank you." as much as he liked being naked around Heero, he quickly put them on. For some reason being around Trowa made him feel a bit uneasy. Heero moved away from Duo, not caring about his own nudity, and took a spear from the wall. Duo looked at Heero in confusion, curious to what he was going to do. Trowa saw this confusion and began to explain to him.

"Well, you said you were hungry; Heero's gonna go hunt something for you to eat."

"Uh… don't they already have stuff around here to eat?"

"Well… I think there's some berries, but that won't fill you up, will it?"

Duo sighed, "No, I guess not." he held his belly, "I'm hungry now!"

Heero turned and saw the pout on Duo's face, and the way he held his stomach. He wandered back over to his concubine and put a hand on his cheek. Duo blinked, looking at Heero in wonder.

"Na ra ni gont pi tipi." Heero whispered.

Duo looked over at Trowa for an explanation.

"He said that you should have told him sooner."

Duo pouted again, "but I wasn't aware of it until now."

Trowa translated that to Heero, and Heero sighed. He brought his face closer to Duo's and whispered something then gently placed his lips onto Duo's.

Trowa sighed, translating what he whispered, since Duo had the right to know, "Heero said, he'll get you the most delicious meat in the jungle, my pretty one."

Duo's eyes widened in shock at Trowa.

Trowa held his hands up, "Hey! That's what HE said. I think I've heard him call you that before. It must be his pet name to you."

Duo chuckled, "Pretty one? Oh lovely. Um…" Duo fidgeted, "could you tell him what my pet name to him is?"

Trowa groaned inwardly, "I suppose. God I hope Heero learns English quickly." He murmured.

Duo leered, "I heard that. Anyways, could you tell Heero that his pet name for him from me is `Handsome native'?"

Trowa looked at Heero and saw that he had the young man's attention, he sighed, and related the message. Heero's eyes grew wider than Duo had ever seen them do before. When he quickly recovered from the shock, he told Trowa to tell Duo that he was never called that before. Duo jolted when he heard this.

"What about the girls in the village? Don't they say that to him?"

"I don't think that it's their place to say things like that. Most of the women here already have someone to be loyal to. I'm sure they all think that he's handsome, but I don't think anyone called him that."

Duo smiled, glad that he had been the first one to say that to him. Heero wrapped his arms around his pale skinned husband and gave him a deep kiss. Duo happily accepted the kiss and kissed him back just as fiercely.

Heero led his lover over to the tiger skin and instructed him to sit and wait. Duo understood the hand signals and sighed, trying to give Heero the best pout he could. He succeeded in making Heero feel guilty for not thinking about Duo's state before, eyeing that cute pout for a moment more before he lowered himself down to kiss it away. When Heero released him and straightened back up, Duo was smiling up at him. Heero gave him a small smile back and raced out of the hut.

Duo looked over at Trowa, who looked as if he were straightening out his own stuff in his large duffle bag, and waited until he was finished before he opened his mouth. He was so happy that he had someone there to talk to that could talk back.

"So story time is tomorrow, right?"

"Yup." Trowa said, nodding. Still rummaging through his stuff, he found a brush and noticed that Duo was staring at it immensely. "Would you like to borrow this?"

Duo nodded his head repeatedly, "Yes please!" Trowa tossed it to him, and Duo clumsily caught it. "Gee thanks, you could have just handed it to me." he glared. Trowa chuckled.

~**~

Heero wandered toward the jungle, still not caring whether he was nude or not, with his spear in his hand.

He heard something, or rather, someone, and stopped. He turned around slowly as saw that Anana was walking up to him. He gave her a warning glare, but she kept walking. She asked him something and he nodded. She lowered her head saying in their native tongue, "You're hunting for `him', aren't you?"

Heero grunted his reply, affirming that she was right. She sighed, walked closer to him, and placed a small kiss on his cheek, saying, "Be careful, my mate." And then she left. He shook his head and then continued to walk to the hunting grounds.

He made it to the edge of a water hole and began to put mud all over his body. He found a bush filled with berries, but these berries weren't for eating he knew. He crushed them up quickly and began to paint his face with accuracy. He had done this many times.

The colors were mashed with green leaves for a better camouflage. When he was finished, he walked back to the water hole to look at his own reflection. Everything was covered and blended in well with the background of the jungle except one thing. His eyes.

It shouldn't matter, he mused. He will have his eyes narrowed most of the time, and they were not too noticeable in the shadows. He was glad that they didn't glow like many of the animals he had seen. Satisfied, Heero set out to find the one thing that he knew that Duo would like; it was the same thing that Trowa expressed his fondness for. With that in mind, he slinked his way through the undergrowth like a wild cat. The hunt was on.

~**~

"What is taking him so long?" Duo whined, holding his stomach, "I'm so hungry!"

"Be patient, Duo." Trowa sighed, "I'm sure that he's getting more than just something for you. He's probably getting some for me, and Anana too. But that's just a guess."

"Oh yeah. Anana is supposed to be pregnant isn't she?"

Trowa nodded, "Yes."

"Oh, I almost forgot, I have a question. Why isn't Anana sharing this hut with us?"

"She's in the special hut for the pregnant and bleeding women."

"Bleeding??" Duo was very confused.

"Like when a woman gets her monthly period they have a special hut that they must be in during it. It's only for three to five days, and their mates always hunt for them and care for them during the day. But since Anana won't be bleeding, she's able to walk around the village and tend to her own things. When she gets about six to seven months along, she must stay in the hut at all times, and Heero will be caring for her."

Duo looked sad, so Trowa said, "Try not to be too jealous, Duo. You know that he will be doing it only because he wants his baby to turn out healthy. He might even have you help if you want to."

Duo smiled, "I'd like to. It IS Heero's child, after all. And I'm its other daddy, so to speak. I wouldn't even mind spoiling it!"

"Careful. They don't spoil children like we do. Just do what Heero does and try not to interfere with his way of rearing his child."

Duo nodded, "I understand. I hope, for his sake, he has a son. I'd hate to think what would happen if he had a daughter first. Not that it really should matter. Speaking of which, I'm so looking forward to your story tomorrow night. Is there a chance that I can get some kind of preview tonight?" the longhaired man pleaded.

Trowa snickered, "I don't think so. It would spoil everything."

"Nah! Just give me a few hints and stuff. Like, uhhh… what did you save Heero from?"

"Not telling."

"Oh come on! Oh and how did you know he was in trouble? And what were you doing at the time? And did Heero shun you at all?"

Trowa smirked, "Ok fine, I'll let you in on some of it."

Duo bounced, "Yay!" he settled himself down onto the white tiger skin and looked up at the tall man in anticipation. Trowa sighed, smiling slightly. Duo acted a bit like a child himself sometimes, he noted.

"The only thing I'm telling you is this: That White Tiger skin that you're sitting on right now… is a trophy of his completed test."

Duo leapt up onto his knees and looked down at the skin, "Trophy? Test?? Wha?"

"Yup, and that's all I'm saying."

"You're no fun, teasing me like that!" his tone was serious, but he gave the green-eyed man a goofy grin. He brought a hand down to caress the soft fur, thinking about what Trowa told him. He recalled Trowa saying that he saved Heero's life when the native was ten, so that meant that Heero had to do some kind of test during that time to do what? Prove himself? Maybe show everyone that he was the strongest? Whatever it was, he knew that he'd find out tomorrow. He wasn't sure if he really wanted to wait that long.

Just then, Heero wandered into the hut, and he smelt like a combination of mashed berries, sweat, and blood. He mumbled something in his native tongue and then pointed outside. Trowa nodded and headed for the entrance of the flap. Heero moved out of the way for the pale, tall one, and looked over at Duo who was still sitting on the skin. Duo looked up at his brown skinned husband and his jaw dropped.

Heero was still covered in his camouflage paint, but his hands were a bit bloody and some of the mud on his face was smeared. For some reason, Duo felt his heart rate speed up. Heero looked so primal, raw… and dangerous, he felt like surrendering himself to him in that instant.

Duo stood up and moved to stand in front of the naked and decorated native. Heero seemed to be smiling at him, he looked pleased.

"Na ti hin gont."

"Hm?" Duo smiled, tight lipped. He was at least trying to play along, pretending that he knew what he was saying. The native's voice was so sexy.

Heero beaconed him with a finger to follow him outside, and Duo found that he couldn't resist that wiggling digit. He followed Heero out to see a big slab of meat skewered through the middle and dangling over a fire pit. It didn't look very appetizing, but it smelt wonderful.

Trowa was already sitting on a flat rock with his legs crossed, waiting patiently for the food to be done. Heero sat beside the English man and stared into the fire. Duo took his spot on the other side of Heero and watched as his mysterious husband continued to gaze into the flames. Minutes later, Duo was shifting uncomfortably on the rock and making groaning noises.

"What's wrong, Duo?" Trowa asked.

Duo looked over at the other English man and pouted, "I'm so hungry, I can't stand it! Is it done yet?"

For fun, Trowa told Heero what Duo said.

"Hey! Don't be telling him everything I say!"

"Why not? He has the right to know what you're babbling about."

Duo's glare was cut short when he finally realized that Heero was glaring at him. He wasn't sure if the glare was annoyance or forewarning. Duo decided to change the subject.

"So, um, Trowa?"

"Yeah?"

"What does…" Duo was trying to recall the word, and then suddenly remembered, "What does `wannay-pet' mean?"

Heero jumped as he recognized the word, and he knew that Duo was asking a question, so he gave Duo a very dangerous glare. Duo `eeped' at the sight and gave Heero his best innocent look.

Trowa chuckled, making Heero look over at him and gave him a hard glare too. Trowa knew what the word was, and he figured that Heero understood that Duo was asking about it. He was debating on whether or not he should tell him. Heero looked ready to throttle him.

"Well…"

Heero stood up in defense, cutting Trowa from continuing. Trowa gulped, never having seen Heero this mad before toward him. He decided to wait on telling Duo when it was safer. Heero noticed that Trowa was wise enough to close his lip, so he sat back down. Duo moved closer and snuggled up against Heero's arm. Heero snorted a warning, but Duo seemed to ignore it. They all stayed that way, watching the meat cook.

Anana appeared moments later, and sat silently down at Heero's feet. She didn't even look at Duo when she did, which perplexed the longhaired man. Was she upset with him or was it a custom she was following? Duo looked up at Heero and saw that he was still looking straight into the fire. He looked over at Trowa, who was trying to look anywhere but at Heero. Duo was afraid that he had done something to jeopardize their friendship so he had to ask.

"Trowa? Could you ask Heero if he's mad at you?"

Trowa sighed, closing his eyes, "I don't know."

"Please? Tell him that I want to know."

Trowa was quiet for a while. He softly asked Heero if he was mad at him, and then quickly amended that Duo wanted to know. Heero looked down at his longhaired beauty, Duo looked up to lock eyes with him, and then Heero slowly shook his head. Duo smiled and sighed with relief. Suddenly Duo chuckled, "Can you tell me what the word means now without him knowing?"

A small smile appeared on Trowa's face, "If I tell you and he finds out, he'll probably be really pissed at me."

"So? Just don't tell him. Please? I wanna know."

"Ok, but if he finds out and tries to kill me I'm coming after that braid of yours with a knife."

Duo chuckled, "Deal."

Trowa sighed, and then after a long moment he said, "It means beautiful."

Duo tried to look indifferent, but inside he was doing the boogie.
