For The Longest Time
by NoirAnge

 

~*~*~*~
If you say goodbye to me tonight
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do
I'm so inspired by you
That hasn't happened for the longest time
~*~*~*~

Heero smiled as he watched Duo talking to people over by the punch bowl. Quatre had put together a party for his employees in the Winner Corporation, and the other pilots had been invited too. There were refreshments, music, and plenty of people were dancing. Heero was content to just watch, though.

The fact that Duo was there, having a good time, made Heero happy. Heero didn't know how, but Duo inspired so many feelings in him. Happiness, joy. Love. He couldn't remember the last time he had felt those things. He wouldn't tell Duo, though. Watching was enough, and he didn't want to ruin it all by telling. Surely, Duo would reject him. He wasn't nearly good enough for Duo.

~*~*~*~
Once I thought my innocence was gone
Now I know that happiness goes on
~*~*~*~

//There was a time that I thought I would never be happy. That I'd done too much damage, too many things that were just plain wrong, to ever deserve it.// Heero thought as he continued to watch Duo, who was joking and laughing with a pretty girl, probably around 17. //I was wrong. I was so wrong. I'm happy now, watching you be happy. I'm happier now than I've ever been in my life.// He grinned.

~*~*~*~
That's where you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven't been there for the longest time
~*~*~*~

Heero got up to get a drink as a slow song began to play. Grabbing a small cup of water, he turned around and almost walked straight into Duo. Duo smiled.

"Hey, Heero. Wanna dance?" Heero was momentarily stunned, then he nodded, set the cup down and let Duo lead him away from the refreshment table. They stopped, and Heero felt Duo's arms around his neck, hugging him close. He smiled, content, as he put his arms around Duo's waist and began to dance. He had just gotten a lot happier.

~*~*~*~
Oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
~*~*~*~

The song finished and Heero realized several people were looking at them. He blushed, but didn't make a move to push Duo away.

"Come on Heero, let's go sit down, shall we?" Duo said with a wink. They went to find a small table off to the side, and they sat down and talked for a little while. Heero was nervous, it was the first time he'd talked to Duo in a while. It got quiet, and Heero was about to say something when Duo put a finger on his lips, stopping him.

"Shh." Duo looked at Heero, catching his eyes and grinning mischievously. Then he kissed him. Heero was surprised, but he melted into the kiss as he felt Duo's arms encircling him.

~*~*~*~
I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you
And how you needed me too
That hasn't happened for the longest time
~*~*~*~

The kiss became more urgent, and they were panting when they broke for air. Both were more than a little aroused, and forgetting about the party, they made their way upstairs to find a bedroom. (1)

"Heero, do you really want to do this?" Duo asked hesitantly, afraid of what the answer might be.

Heero couldn't seem to find the words for what he wanted to say. He needed Duo, that much was sure. So he answered in the only way he could think of. He kissed Duo, passionately and with all his love. Duo kissed him back as they fell onto the bed.

~*~*~*~
Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I've been hoping too hard
But I've gone this far
And it's more than I hoped for
~*~*~*~

Heero lay there, still buried deep inside of Duo. Duo's head was nestled in the crook of his neck as he held the quietly slumbering boy. He had thought, earlier, that he could never be happier. He smiled. Nothing was further from the truth. He was a little uneasy, though. Would this last? He hoped so, but he wasn't sure. Duo had never shown interest in him before, so this could easily just be a one night stand. He held Duo closer, hoping beyond hop that Duo loved him as much as he loved Duo.

~*~*~*~
Who knows how much further we'll go on
Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone
I'll take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is
I haven't been there for the longest time
~*~*~*~

Heero sat in the park, watching Duo as he attempted to fly a kite. He smiled, a genuine smile. He had been doing that a lot lately. He was so happy, being with Duo. How could he not be? He still wasn't sure if it would last, it had only been a week.

"Hey Heero, come help me with this kite! I can't get it to stay up there!" Duo called. Heero obliged, smiling. It looked promising. Very promising.

~*~*~*~
I had second thoughts at the start
I said to myself
Hold on to your heart
Now I know the woman that you are
Your're wonderful so far
And it's more than I hoped for
~*~*~*~

Duo sat next to Heero on the grass, kite forgotten. They had finally gotten it flying, but now they were taking a break to watch the sunset.

"It's so beautiful, koi," Duo said.

"Not as beautiful as you are," Heero replied, taking Duo's hand in his own. He looked over to see Duo smiling at him. Seeing the love shining in his koi's eyes, Heero didn't know how he had ever doubted him.

~*~*~*~
I don't care what consequence it brings
I have been a fool for lesser things
I want you so bad
I think you ought to know that
I intend to hold you for the longest time
~*~*~*~

"Oh, Heero," Duo whispered as he hugged his lover. "I love you, you know that?"

"I love you too, Duo. I love you too," Heero whispered back, hugging him fiercely. He didn't ever want to let go. Not ever.

~*~*~*~
Oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
~*~*~*~

Notes:
(1) the party is being held in a big room in one of quatre's estates. i'm gonna take a little guess here and assume that there's bedrooms * somewhere* ^.~

 

so, how'd it go? like i said, its the first songfic i've ever written. they're hard to do, and i'm not sure how well the lyrics fit in with the story. i think i did a pretty good job, for the first time, but i wanna know what you guys thought. feedback, ne?? tis the stuff we writers thrive on ^.~
