the duel: 2X1 takes a shot
Behind the Mask
"one...two.. three..." Heero grunted as he moved with his partner. "One ...two...three..." His partner stepped on his foot and all Heero could do was glare the sheepish looked face before him.
"Oops, sorry Heero." Duo grinned.
'Why do I have to teach him to dance?' Heero growled to himself. So far Duo had stepped on his right foot twice and his left foot once. It was enough to cut through the last of Heero's nerves and make him stop teaching the braided boy, if not for the fact that Duo MUST be able to dance smoothly within this week.
They were currently staying in a school, which was holding a dancing competition, where a high OZ officer would be the judge. Their mission was to kill the certain judge. However they found out that the room, where the competition stage was, was well guarded. Only judges and contestants may enter while the audiences watched from far away or by television. They had calculated the distance if they attended the competition as an audience, but they found out it was too far to focus on their the target and held a big chance that the people around them may see what they were about to do.
So they decided to disguise themselves as contestants and find a good time to shoot the certain judge with their hidden weapons while they were dancing with their partners on the stage. One big problem was Duo COULDN'T dance. So here he was, in the gym late at night, teaching Duo to dance pretty well before the week ended.
"Heero? Are you okay?" Duo's voice pulled Heero from his thoughts. "I didn't step on your foot too hard, did I?"
"I'm fine, baka." Heero glared. "Let's continue practicing. Remember to watch your step and follow the song's rhythm."
"Yes, teacher." Duo answered mockingly. He put one hand around Heero's waist and entwined the other one with Heero's while Heero's other hand found its place on Duo's shoulder. Heero cursed when he realized he had to act as Duo's female partner while teaching him to dance.
They moved again and danced around the room. It was only two that minutes passed when Duo stepped on Heero's foot for the fourth time. Heero gritted his teeth and took a step back from Duo. He tried hard not to show his pain and masked it by glaring at his dance partner.
"Gomen, Heero." Duo grinned again, not once looking guilty, making Heero want to smash that heart shaped face with his punch.
"Why did you do that?" Heero growled.
"Huh?" Duo looked confused for a second.
"Don't toy with me. You *deliberately* step on my foot." Heero glared at his smirking partner who didn't deny the statement. "So answer me, what is your purpose in doing it?"
"Simple" Duo shrugged, putting down his cheerful mask. "I don't see any advantage in me practicing the dance."
"Advantage? You need to be able to dance to enter the competition, baka. The guards will be suspicious if there's a contestant who can't dance but entered the dancing competition." Heero snapped. "Your cover will be blown and they will kill you in an instant."
"Ah... are you worried about me?" Duo smiled lazily.
Heero was surprised and stepped back at the question. What did this baka think? Worried about him? Hah! Duo was dreaming. Heero threw his death glare at the braided boy before him. "You can endanger the mission and blow my cover as well."
"Ah, you're worried about the mission, then?" Duo sneered. "Very well, let's make a deal."
"Yes, a deal. I don't want to waste my time learning to dance without having any advantages. However if you give me what I want, I will show the best dance I have and finish the mission quickly."
"You want me to give you a reward for finishing the mission?" Heero growled dangerously.
"Nope I want my reward for putting up with this stupid dancing exercise." Duo's violet eyes looked sharply at Heero. "I'm not used to following orders, but I'll follow your orders to the core if you give me what I want."
Heero thought for some seconds, realizing Duo was serious with his words. "What do you want from me?"
"I'll tell you when we have the deal." Duo answered.
Heero looked long and when he noticed Duo wasn't showing any weakness or wasn't going to look away any time soon, Heero nodded slowly. "Fine, finish the mission first and I'll give you what you want as long as it doesn't interfere with other missions."
"Ninmu ryokai." Duo gave a feral grin that somehow made Heero feel uneasy. "In that case, I will tell you what I want once one of us finishes the mission then."
"Fine." Heero grunted. He predicted Duo wanted him to give him money or to wear something silly. He could put up with it. Little did he know that what Duo wanted would change him forever.
The day of the competition finally came. Heero was slightly nervous but he didn't let it show on his face. From the time they made a deal, Duo had followed Heero's every order to the core, but still he felt worried the braided boy would ruin the mission. Heero growled and decided to kill the braided boy if he really messed up on this mission. He focused his attention on the dancing stage where Duo was dancing with his female partner. Heero got the higher number so he only had to dance if Duo failed to kill the judge.
Heero watched in amusement as Duo twirled his partner and then together they gyrated. That movement wasn't a thing you could master in few days. Duo must have learned dancing before this. Then Heero's eagle eyes caught something shiny between Duo's lips and the next second he knew, the thing had struck down the targeted judge, killing him effectively.
Heero was speechless. He never knew Duo could use such a trick and at that time he realized he didn't know much about Duo, except for the fact he was the Deathscythe pilot and they were on the same side.
The stage had become a riot once the female judge, next to the dead judge, screamed hysterically. Heero and Duo escaped, following the panicked contestants out of the stage area. Heero arrived first in their room. He quickly typed his mission report to Dr. J.
Heero was sending the message when Duo entered the room, smirking all the way. "Ninmu kanryou."
"Yes." Heero turned the chair and looked at the smug boy before him."You have succeeded in killing the officer. I never knew you were good at using needles like that."
"There's a lot you don't know about me." Duo walked until he was in front of Heero.
Heero glared slightly. "Why didn't you tell me you could dance?"
"You didn't ask." Duo shrugged. "You just grabbed me and forced me to practice as if I'm a stupid person who never danced before. That hurt my ego as a dancer."
"And that's why you want a reward from me to make it up for it?" Heero raised an eyebrow.
"Yes, you owe me that."
Heero growled. "Fine, what do you want as the reward?" He saw Duo's violet eyes flashing. His heart pounding fast as the braided boy bent down until his head next to Heero's head and whispered to his ear.
"I want you."
Heero was surprised and felt something wet lick his earlobe. Before he realized what had happened, Duo pulled away and walked toward the door. "I still have something to do, so I expect you to be naked and in my bed later tonight." With that, Duo walked out of the room, leaving Heero alone to process what he had said.
Heero was lying on the bed when he heard the door knob turn. He quickly sat up and watched as Duo entered the room. "Finally you're back."
"You're still here." Astonishment was clearly heard in Duo's voice.
"Of course, what did you expect me to do? Run away?"
"You know I gave you enough time to escape." The braided boy eyed Heero's naked body from head to toe as he approached the Japanese pilot on his bed.
"I'm not a coward." Heero crossed his arms in front of his chest. "I agreed to do this and I will carry it on."
"Well," Duo sat down on the bed, next to Heero. "What if I decide to abuse you?"
"I did a lot of think about that and I trust you to keep a limit on your actions."
"Trust me?" Duo laughed mockingly. "You don't trust me to complete the mission, yet you trust your body to me?"
"I was wrong not to trust you and now is the first step to show my trust to you." Heero looked straight at Duo, who had stopped laughing and was looking back at him seriously.
"You'll regret it." Duo whispered warningly.
"That's a consequence I will bear if my trust on you misplaced." Heero answered calmly. He had done a lot of thinking since Duo left him after the competition and after a long inner battle, he decided to consent to Duo's will.... as he did right now.
Suddenly a pain shot from his chest, making Heero gasp in surprise and pain. "Wha..t"
"You don't know me, how can you trust me?" Duo twisted the nipple between his fingers.
"I want to know about you." Heero panted, fighting the urge to shove Duo's hand away from his chest. "I want to know the real you beneath the jokers mask you wear and I'm willing to give my trust as the payment."
Duo withdrew his hand. "That's a risky decision, you know."
Heero nodded. "I will take the risk."
Calloused fingers grabbed his chin and forced him to look straight at the violet orbs before him. "Why do you want to know about me?"
"I don't know." Heero answered truthfully. He also had asked himself about this and couldn't find the answer. He was confused and yet he still wanted to know about Duo.
Duo's eyes softened. "I'll accept that answer for now." The American boy pushed Heero to lie on the bed while his hand trailed down, caressing his chest, his navel, and his groin.
"Spread your legs, Heero." Duo whispered huskily.
Heero inhaled deeply and open his legs, giving access to Duo's exploring fingers. He sucked hard and bit his lips to keep his moan when Duo's digit brushed over his hardened flesh.
"Don't hold it. I want to hear you moan. I want to hear every sound you make, knowing it's me who cause you to do that." Duo's other hand joined the first hand in quest of exploring Heero's body. They touched, caressed, and kneaded the bare flesh of the Japanese boy, making said boy to moan loudly in no time.
Heero trembled when Duo's questing fingers brushed over his puckered entrance.
"This is your first time?"
"I'll try to make it less painful."
As one finger slipped into him, Heero realized Duo didn't promise him no pain because the American boy knew he would feel the pain like he was feeling at the moment.
"Are you in pain?" Duo asked as he pressed his dry finger deeper into Heero.
"A little." Heero clenched his hands tightly, keeping them at his side while all he wanted to do was to pull the intruding finger out of him. He had said he trusted Duo and he would hold onto that.
The finger withdrew as soon as he answered Duo's question. But before Heero could breath in relief, the finger penetrated him again. This time it was slick with something.... Like saliva...
"I appreciate your trust in me." Duo whispered near Heero's ear while at the same time he drove the second digit inside the Japanese boy's tight body.
Heero gasped and spread his legs wider, giving the fingers more space to invade him. Those fingers slid deeper, wiggling and easing their way inside him. Heero suddenly jerked up when the slender digits prod something inside him that sent jolts of pleasure over his body.
"That's your prostate." Duo nibbled Heero's earlobe while his fingers prodded Heero's prostate over and over.
Heero was on sensory overloaded. He was only aware of Duo's fingers inside him and Duo's tongue nibbling his ear. Suddenly the fingers and the tongue withdrew, leaving him feeling empty inside. Heero opened his eyes, which he was never aware of closing, and saw Duo sitting between his spread legs. "Duo?"
"On your hands and knees, Heero." Duo merely whispered the words, but it more felt like an order for Heero then when they were said aloud. Without protest, Heero rolled and got up on his hands and knees. He heard a zipper being pulled down and something like a spitting sound. Something wet and slick was applied on his rear end.
Another spitting sound and Heero felt a blunt tip touch his entrance. A hand encircled his waist as Duo's body hovered over his back. "Relax and let me in." The blunt tip pressed forward and Heero gasped as it tried to pry his entrance open. He forced his body to relax as Duo had said and slowly the tip entered him.
Heero arched his back as Duo slid inside him slowly and steady, never stopping. He felt the pain of the penetration but as Duo slid deeper, the pain subsided. The American pilot only stopped once he had settled completely inside Heero. "So tight." Duo moaned near Heero's ear.
Heero was panting in his effort to stay calm and adjust to Duo. He could feel his inner muscles stretch and press, trying to accommodate Duo inside him.
Then he felt Duo pull away.
The Japanese boy inhaled loudly at the friction caused by Duo's manhood against his inner tissues. It felt so good, so heavenly. Duo kept withdrawing leaving only the blunt tip inside Heero and then pushed forward again, burying his aching need into Heero swiftly. Heero jerked up and cried out as the shoving prodded his prostate, sending waves of ecstasy through his nerves. Following his natural instinct, Heero pushed back, meeting Duo thrust after thrust.
They rocked faster and harder until the point where Duo was slamming into Heero, causing the Japanese boy to rock forward at every thrust. Heero gasped when Duo's hand closed around him and pumped him. Surrendering to the inevitable, Heero yelled and came, at the same time Duo growled and thrust the final time into him, filling Heero with the proof of his passion.
Later when his orgasm had subsided, Heero found himself back on earth, on Duo's bed to be exact. He was lying on his side, with Duo behind him, spooning against him. The American's boy softened member was still buried inside him, strangely giving him some kind of comfort. As their breaths became steady, Duo's arm and leg found its way over Heero, pulling the Japanese boy into the braided boy's embrace.
"No regret?" Duo whispered at the back of Heero's ear.
"No." Heero answered without thinking for he indeed had no regret. He trusted Duo not to harm him and his trust was unbroken. That was enough for him at the moment.
Duo became silent after that. The only sign the braided boy hadn't fallen asleep was his fingers, which were teasing Heero's nipples idly.
And then when Heero was about to close his eyes and sleep, he heard Duo speak up.
"What do you want to know?"
