Heero -

[I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it...]

I stare at the boy sitting on the bed across from mine. He is prattling on about something or other. I ignore him, then I hear three words, one of which being my name... He knows I wasn't listening, I bet that's why he said it... He'd said, '... love you, Heero.'

What could he mean by that? Is he just trying to get my attention? Iie, he would never say something like that that he didn't mean... right? He runs, he hides, but he never lies, right? I look up and my eyes catch his...

[You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was...]

He goes about doing little things for me, like fixing dinner or doing my laundry. Is he trying to tell me something? He doesn't think I heard him...

Trowa and I go out on a mission. It is over and we return. I jump down from Wing, the moment I hit the landing pad Duo bounds over and greets me with a hug. "How did it go? Are you hurt? No? I'm so glad!"

[You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
It's all your fault...]

We walk back to the safe house. Duo and I enter the room we share, he looks nervous.

"What's wrong?" I ask him.

He looks at me and it is utterly clear in that moment, he averts his eyes and stutters an answer. "I-I wanted to... uh... aw what the fuck... I like you... iie, I love you, Heero..." Then he clasps a hand to his mouth and looks down. He visibly braces himself, awaiting a blow?

I walk over to him and place my hands on his shoulders, he flinches, then looks up. We are face to face. Slowly I move my mouth down to meet his. He stiffens, then melts into the kiss. He begins to participate, very enthusiastically.

We brake for air, and I lea close to whisper into his ear, "I love you too, it's all you're fault, angel..."

[Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
The's not lip service...]


I take him and he is mine, but not mine. I do not posess that angelic creature. I run my hands lightly over his smooth skin, he moans in pleasure. I gentle tease his nipples, feeling the flesh harden at my touch. I kiss slowly down his firm stomach until I reach his ridig member. I close over him and he writhes in pain/pleasure. We lay in a tangle of limbs, exhausted, but sated. I kiss his forehead.

He had told me he loved me, then thought of what I could have done to him if I did not feel the same way back. He's braver than I thought.


[You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience...]

Duo, you loved me and cared for me even when you didn't know if I held feelings for you in return. You give unconditionally, not expecting anything in return. You give so much... what can I give yuo in return? Hiw can I repay you for all you've given.

He sits on the sofa talking with Quatre, he glances over at me inviting me to sit down. Quatre must have done the same at Trowa, because he too came and sat on the sofa. We all talk, well... Duo is smiling, I am glad that he is happy. Duo, what can I give you? How can I truly cement my love for you?

Duo -

[You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long...]

I see you thinking. What is it that brings that frown to your brows? I talk to you, you listen so well! Nodding at just the right time, this time you are truly listening. Over the time I've know you, Heero, you're the only I ever truly cared for. I never had anyone that I could call a friend, let alone best friend.

You look at me, I had stopped talking, unconsiously. Your eyes hold a sparkle that is only for me. Ne, Heero, what furrows your brow and mares your beautiful face? What are you thinking?

Heero gets up and exscuses himself. He says he has an errand to run. When he returns he has a small bag. After dinner we all go to our rooms and that's when he hands me something. It's a small box and inside is...

[I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now...]

It's a ring. Heero gave me a ring! A smile tugs at his lips, he takes the ring out of the box and slides it onto my finger. I gawk. The ring is white gold with a small stone set in it. I recover myself and fling my arms around his neck. He hold me tight, whispering, "I'll never let you go. Ai shiteru." over and over.

It's a few years later. We live a quite life, the war is since over and we have alot of free time. We are still good friends with Wufei, Trowa, and Quatre. Trowa and Quatre got married too, we all had a double wedding! Wufei and Sally Po hit it off really well, and Relena, well Relena is too busy with politics to bother any of us. We all live quietly and enjoy living.

Happy living, living happily, ne, Koi? You and I, together forever, ne? Nothing can destroy something this right, aside from death, but we'll be together, even in death. I love you, Koi. Ai shiteru, zutto, itsumo!
