Title: Come and Save Me Tonight
Author: Sori Hime
Written: April Fools day, 2001. (lets hope that bodes well.)
Pairings: 1x2
Category: shonen ai/ songfic. Lil' angsty, I didn't know I could write anything this oozing of sap.
Disclaimer: Shin Kidousenki Gundam Wing is wonderful and no matter how much I love it, alas, it doesn't belong to me. As if to add insult to injury, the Gundam Wing boys also do not belong to me. "Angel" belongs to Aerosmith, great band that they are. This fanfic belongs to Sori Hime.
Warning: Kay, down to business, this is a yaoi/shonen ai fic, HeeroxDuo. This means these are boys in love. If homosexuality bothers you, or you are legally not of age to read material of (a possibly) sexually explicate nature, do not read this fic! If you do, you've been warned! It's no twist off my lemon! Also, prolonged exposure to a fic this sappy may cause your head to explode like a lemon flavored "gusher" fruit snack.
Notes: Song lyrics are in //...//. This is a sequel of sorts to `Til I Hit the Ground, also by me.

Sori Hime: And so, here we go, my second ever fic!

Duo: ANOTHER yaoi fic!

SH: Yeah, you love it and you know it Duo, isn't that right Heero?

Heero: Hn. <Drags Duo off for fanfic>

Duo: Hey! I can walk you know! Big Baka! YOU'RE SLEEPING ON THE COUCH TONIGHT!

SH: Shhhhh! You're ruining the mood! Aww, well. Here we go again.

 

Come and Save Me Tonight by Sori Hime

 

//I'm alone
yeah I don't know if I can face the
night//

It's all over. I'm not needed anymore, without war, who needs a solider, especially a perfect one. You've reached out before, we used each other for a physical release, but now, it's different. Duo…

//I'm in tears
and the cryin' that I do is for you//

Without warning, warm salty tears trail down my face. I don't have the energy or the will to stop them. Yes, I guess this is my emotions shoving their foot back in the door. I haven't felt this in so long. I wonder if Duo even believes I can cry.

//I want your love let's break the wall between us//

You're so close, just next door. If I stop breathing I can almost
hear the sound of you sleeping. It's clear now, getting clearer. It
wasn't my strength that got me through this war, it was my weakness.
My weakness for you.

//Don't make it tough I'll put away my pride//

My feet move of their own accord. I couldn't stop them if I wanted. I'd give up anything for just one night to hold you. No sex, just to hold you, to feel your heartbeat against mine, to assure myself I have a heart. To hear your breathing, which is more precious to me that air.

//Enough's enough, I've suffered and I've seen the light//

I'm just a shell now, the soldier is gone. But I could find a new self in you, in my love for you. With you was the fist and only time I've felt really alive, that my life was more than just the endless missions, endless killing… You can show me the steps, and hold my hand, teach me to laugh.

//Baby,//

I watch you sleep, the look on your face shows the years you've lived beyond your age. Yet your beautiful. Hope. You've always had it, unshakable, like a rock. I thought maybe it was your faith in god. I don't know. You pulled me thought this war with your faith that life awaited us on the other side of this darkness. Maybe someday I'll have that faith, in myself, in the world. Right now, I only have faith in you.

//You're my angel
come and save me tonight
You're my angel
come and make it alright//

I will you to wake up, prove to me that together we are right. Save me Duo…I'll wait forever.

//Don't know what I'm gonna do about
this feelin' inside//

I tried so hard to shut you out Duo. You tried to reach out. Please, come and make it alright.

//Yes, it's true, loneliness took me for a ride//

I never even knew what real loneliness was `til you weren't there. With your jokes and musings. I was listening Duo… I couldn't let you know, but I was listening…

//Without your love I'm nothing but a beggar
Without your love a dog without a bone//

Worse. I'll be dead, inside shattered to pieces. You begged me to live, not to throw my life away, and I turned my back on you. Told you that your life meant as little to me as mine. As you lay asleep I realize how much I love you…

//What can I do?
I'm sleepin' in this bed alone//

But I can't do it anymore. I need you Duo, wake up if you can feel me here, wake up if you know…

//Baby,//

…that you can save me.

//You're my angel
come and save me tonight
You're my angel
come and make it alright
You're my angel
come and save me tonight//

Suddenly you're stirring. You turn over, your unbound hair in tangles all over the pillow. You prop yourself up on an elbow and squint in my direction, blinded by the darkness of the room.

"Heero..? Is that you?"

//You're the reason I live
You're the reason I die
You're the reason I give when I break
down and cry//

"eh…yes, it's me." Save me Duo, you've already done it so many times. Did you know you're the reason I lived, I could have let myself die destroying that falling space station… but I lived.

//Don't need no reason why
Baby, baby, baby//

"What's wrong? Is something happening?"

"Yes." My heart is breaking Duo, if you put your hand to my chest, you could feel the pieces. You sit up in bed; a worried look comes over your face. Such a beautiful face…

"What Heero, what is it? Can I help?"

//You're my angel
come and save me tonight//

"Yes" I feel the words chock in my throat. "… Duo, only you can help… will you help me Duo?" Tears…again… You stand up and walk over to me. You put your arms around me.

"Tell me Heero. Anything, what do you want me to do?"

//You're my angel
come and make it alright//

You look me in the eyes, such warmth…

"Save me Duo…Come and save me tonight…" Your eyes widen, and your embrace relaxes, for a movement I think your going to let go. Oh god, don't let go, I'll drift forever… Then a look of understanding washes over you…

"I'll save you Heero, you're my angel…my love. I'll save you, we'll save each other…" He brushes his lips over mine…

//You're my angel
come and save me tonight//

You pull me over to your bed, and we lie next to each other close. So close you can't tell we're two people. I feel a blanket of exhaustion weigh down on me, I hold you close, I can hear your breathing. Quatre may have been right… maybe I am the Heart of Space, but you Duo, are it's beating.

//You're my angel
come and make it alright//

You stroke my face…

"It's alright now Heero, we can save each other…"

//come and save me tonight
come and save me tonight//

"Yes, angel, each other…I love you…" We fall asleep, gripping each other tightly…forever Duo… forever.

//come and save me tonight
come and save me tonight
come and save me tonight//

 

~End~
