"Heero, I don't like this idea of splitting up, what if that thing comes out, this is so not a good idea. Heero, are you even listening to me?" Duo stomped his foot, "Damn it, listen to me. Hello? I'm not gonna shut up until you listen to me!"

Heero ignored the braided boy, beginning to wonder if he should have taken Wufei and let Duo go on his own, though, he knew he could never let Duo go into a hostile environment without him, not that he'd admit that out loud.

Duo caught up to him and entwined their arms, flirting with him, as usual. Heero never thought of Duo actually liking him, since he flirted with everyone, and Heero was melodramatic anyway.

"Ah, a beautiful day, a beautiful walk with a beautiful boy, what could be better?" Duo grinned at Heero, "Wouldn't you agree, koi?"

"Don't call me that." Heero continued to walk, knowing Duo would think he was mad, causing him to flirt more, which Heero secretly loved, why else would he take the time to talk to the gorgeous idiot?

"Oi, Heero, I'm sorry, don't be mad at me." Duo put on his best pouting face, eyes downcast. "I love you!" He grinned cheekily, clinging to his arm.

"Whatever." Heero moved on stonily, ignoring how good the American's arm felt on his, and what he wanted to do about it.

"Aww, c'mon Heero! Don't be such a party pooper, it's just you and me now, no need to pretend we don't love each other. Just one kiss?" Duo looked up pleadingly, and Heero contemplated the pros and cons of taking him right then and there.

"Be serious."

"Oh, but I am, koi."

Heero ignored him again, continuing to tread through the thick jungle, hoping they weren't going in circles.

Duo was quiet for awhile, contemplating other ways to flirt with his fellow pilot without showing that he really did love him, and turned his attention to the trees and flowers around them.


The Japanese pilot sighed, so much for peace and quiet. "What?"

"What do you think that thing is? I personally don't think it's human, maybe a vampire or something."

Heero shrugged. "It is a possibility. Whatever it was, it won't live long."

Suddenly, rain began to pour down, soaking the two boys.

"Heero, there's an empty tree trunk, run for it!"

Standing next to the trunk, they realized they would have to touch their bodies against each other, a big problem for both semi-aroused boys.

"Uh, not much room in there, Hee-chan, I'll just wait out here, a little rain never hurt me."

Heero shook his head, pulling Duo in behind him, therefore pressing Duo's hardened flesh against his buttocks.

Turning around quickly, he saw Duo looking miserable, head hanging down and blushing.

"You…do like me?" Heero pulled Duo's chin up, forcing him to look him in the eyes.

"Yeah. Sorry. I'll leave." Duo started to exit, but was stopped by Heero.

"No, it's ok. Don't go, I don't want you getting hurt." Heero's statement softened slightly, causing Duo to gasp.

"Oi, Heero, do you know what it sounds like you're saying?" Duo's eyes were wide in surprise.

"Yes, you are my friend."

"Oh…" Duo was disappointed, but tried not to show it, failing miserably.

The rain stopped, and they stepped out, realizing the sun was dropping quickly.

"Hey, Heero, guess we'd better find a cave so we can get a little shut eye."

Heero nodded his ascent and began looking for a suitable area in which to sleep, and figuring out the best way to let Duo know his feelings. This could actually be fun, not that he'd admit that either.


Heero watched Duo pull their blankets out of one of the packs and spread them out to sleep on. Too bad it wasn't cold at all, otherwise, they would be sleeping close together.

"Why do you continue to look at me that way?" Heero asked, after the braided boy had glanced at him a total of 23 times.

"Uh, well, that thing's out there, and…" Duo blushed.

"And you want to know if I will sleep next to you as reassurance, right?"

Duo nodded, and to his surprise, Heero scooted next to him, laying dangerously close, arousing both of them further than earlier that day as their young, perverted minds provided them erotic images of the other in very interesting positions. (Ironically enough, in both boys' minds, Heero was on top and Duo on the bottom.)


"Yes." Heero whispered, why? He didn't know.

"Are you…are you upset with me? I mean, about what I said? I'm really sorry, I didn't mean any harm, I'll try to get over it, and I won't do anything about it, never mention it again, I just…wanna make sure you aren't angry or anything." Heero could barely see Duo's worried face next to him.

"I'm not angry or upset. Do not concern yourself over it." Heero winced inwardly at the hurt look on Duo's face.


Heero waited until Duo's breath evened out, then lay on his back to think and keep watch. There was no way he would let whatever was out there hurt his love.

Duo jerked awake as Heero's hand clamped over his mouth, and saw the other pilot raise a finger to his lips, then point towards the front of the cave.

When Heero pulled his hand away, Duo gave him a puzzled look, then heard a low growl and crunching of branches.

Not able to control his body's actions, Heero pulled Duo close to him by his waist, putting a protective arm around him, pressing close.

"Shh. Don't move."

Duo nodded mutely, mixed between fear, pleasure of being near Heero and arousal from the two.

"I am going to see what it is." Heero whispered, starting to get up.

"NO!" Duo whisper-yelled. "Please, don't leave me Heero, please." Duo begged with his eyes, clinging to Heero.

Heero gave in, sitting back down, holding Duo. "Just be quiet."

The crunching sound stopped, about the front of the cave, and they could hear it's heavy breathing.

Duo closed his eyes tightly, clinging as tightly as possible to Heero, burying his head against Heero's rapidly rising and falling chest.
