I'M NOT IN LOVE

I'm not in love
So don't forget it

[Heero scowls at Duo who's been teasing him outrageously. Heero then shoves Duo away and stalks off.]

It's just a silly phase I'm going through

[Heero watches Duo as the Deathscythe pilot glances through a highly technical reference book while idly nibbling on his braid. When he realizes that he's staring, Heero silently growls at himself and ducks behind his own book.]

And just because I call you up

[Heero knocks on the room to Duo's dorm room. Duo throws his arm around Heero's shoulder and grins happily.]

Don't get me wrong
Don't think you've got it made.

[Heero punches Duo in the stomach and turns away. Duo groans and staggers melodramatically, then unexpectedly trips over a pile of books and lands flat on his back hard.]

I'm not in love, no no, it's because...

[Heero ignores Duo's antics, but when things stay quiet for too long, he reluctantly turns around to take a look. Finally, Heero walks over to Duo and nudges him with his foot. Duo doesn't move. Heero frowns slightly.]

I like to see you

[Heero's sitting in the hospital waiting room, glowering at nothing in particular. He doesn't fidget, but he keeps glancing at the clock.]

But then again
That doesn't mean you mean that much to me.

[When the nurse walks into the waiting room and asks Heero to follow her, he shrugs indifferently, but gets up to follow her.]

So if I call you

[Heero stares down at Duo, who's dozing in the hospital bed. Finally, he murmurs Duo's name. Duo slowly opens his eyes, grabs Heero's hand, and smiles woozily. After Duo closes his eyes again, Heero's cold, rigid expression softens slightly.]

Don't make a fuss
Don't tell your friends about the two of us.

[Heero stays by Duo's bedside and allows Deathscythe pilot to clutch his hand as he dozes off. But as soon as Heero hears a bunch of kids from the school coming in to visit Duo, the Wing pilot abruptly yanks his hand free of Duo's grasp and pulls away.]

I'm not in love, no no, it's because...

[Heero ignores the chattering visitors and stares out the window, with his back turned to the hospital bed and Duo. However, a closeup shows that he's actually watching Duo's every move through the reflection in the window glass.]

I keep your picture upon the wall.
It hides a nasty stain that's lying there.

[Heero picks up a hair tie off Duo's dresser, glances around quickly, then stuffs it in his pocket.]

So don't you ask me to give it back.
I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me.

[As Heero is working in the cockpit of Gundam Wing, Duo pokes his head inside, clutching at the untied end of his hair braid. When Duo asks about his hair tie, Heero gives him an annoyed look and points distractedly to where the hair tie is wrapped around a bunch of wires to keep them in order and out of the way. Duo sighs wearily and wanders off in search for another piece of string.]

I'm not in love, no no, it's because...

[As soon as Duo's gone, Heero stops working and slowly reaches out to run his fingers along Duo's hair tie.]

Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me.
Ooh, you'll wait a long time.

[At dinner, Heero concentrates on his laptop and ignores Duo's attempts to coax him into conversation. He continues to ignore Duo throughout the evening. Finally, Duo, who's still not totally recovered from his concussion, wanders off to bed with an obvious headache.]

I'm not in love, I'm not in love...

[Heero walks into the bedroom to find Duo sprawled all over the bed and the blanket kicked onto the floor. Duo frowns and shivers slightly in the cool night air, but doesn't wake up. Heero silently stares down at Duo, then picks up the blanket and carefully covers Duo. He then places a chair beside Duo's bed and sits down to watch Duo sleep.]
