A Good Deed (1)
-------------------------

Duo came bounding into the kitchen. Everything about him spoke of an infinite good humor and joy of life. His eyes sparkled with anticipation and delight.

“Hee-chan!!! Wu-bear!!! You’re back!!” Duo hugged the two boys cheerfully.

“Hn,” Heero snorted disgustedly. “Of course we did. Unlike some, we can get the job done properly.”

A flash of hurt shown in the violet eyes of the exuberant pilot before it was quickly and skillfully masked. “Ah,” Duo said teasingly, “WE can’t all be perfect like you are, Hee-chan!”

With this, the long-haired boy ran to find the two other members of their little group.

“You hurt him.” Heero turned to look at Wufei at this soft-spoken remark.

Heero gave a minute shrug. “He’ll get over it.” The stoic pilot gazed at Wufei pensively. “besides, I don’t mean enough to him for him to care for long.” He turned and left, seeking out his room.

Wufei shook his head sadly. “You don’t get it,” he whispered to the absent boy. “He does care. As much as you do. I wish that he saw me as he sees you.”

====================

“Oi, Q-baby!” Duo breezed into the room that Quatre and Trowa shared. “Guess who just showed up.” Without waiting for an answer, he continued on. “None other than our departed dyad!” Duo grinned enthusiastically.

“That’s wonderful, Duo!” Quatre replied excitedly, choosing to ignore the fact that his friend’s joy did not show in his eyes. “How did it go? Are they ok?”

Duo bounced on his heels lightly. “They look fine and neither of them mentioned anything going wrong.” He shruged. “But you can asked them yourself. They’re in the kitchen.”

Quatre smiled gently at the self-named Shinigami. “I’ll go do that. But, Duo, why don’t you get some rest. You look like you haven’t been sleeping well lately.”

“Eh, too much coffee. Gotta cut down it seems,” Duo dismissed his concern casually.

“Ah,” Quatre agreed, keeping with Duo’s excuse. “Or switch to decaf.”

The braided American grinned at him again before taking off for somewhere else in the house.

“Well, he looks like he’s doing better now.” Trowa’s soft voice came from the bed.

Quatre turned towards his lover, who was laying down with his head propped up on his hand. “We’ll see. Just because they’re here doesn’t mean there’s been an improvement.”

The gentle Arabian held out his had to the boy on the bed. “Let’s go welcome Heero and Wufei back before they disappear again, ne?”

Trowa looked at his love for a moment before placing his hand in Quatre’s. “Hai.”
