Part 48 - Midnight Meeting
"So all of them said they hadn't taken new subs recently," Duo
commented as he paced around the bedroom.
Heero nodded at his Master's comment. They'd finally gotten around to
discussing the mission, after another bout of his Master exercising
his rights on him, a nap, and then dinner. Now, sitting on the bed,
Heero watched as his Master came to a conclusion.
"One of them is lying then," Duo stated, then looked thoughtful. "But
"That's what we need to find out," Heero spoke, already having come to
the same conclusion much earlier. "I have arranged a midnight meeting
Judging from the slight flare of his Master's nostril at the mention
of Dorothy's nickname, Heero figured out he should have said Dorothy's
real name instead of her nickname. It appeared his Master hadn't
gotten over his jealousy completely. Heero shifted uncomfortably as
his sore ass reminded him of just how possessive his Master was.
"How about Juno, Master?" Heero asked, "Did you see her sometime
today?" The question served to distract his Master's jealous mind and
also to ascertain his own anxiety at not having seen Juno and her sub.
"No. I asked several people about her but they haven't see her either.
She may just be disinclined to join in with the cross dressing and
preferred to enjoy the beach with her sub instead." Duo looked at his
slave seriously. "We will know for sure tonight. Dorothy probably has
managed to contact her."
Heero nodded hesitantly. Though his Master's answer could be true, he
was still feeling uneasy with Juno's absence. However, he knew better
than to go asking around any further or going to her cottage just to
make sure of her status. If something had happened that caused her
cover to be blown, by checking on Juno, they could risk blowing their
cover as well.
"Speaking of cross dressing..." Duo grinned as he came to a stop in
front of the bed. "I have an urge to deflower my Japanese girl
Heero stared in disbelief at his Master. He thought his Master had
been satisfied with using him twice this afternoon and was secretly
relieved that he didn't have to wear the kimono again. Now, as it
turned out, he should've known better; his Master was one very horny
"I think you should wear the kimono by itself this time, Kitten." His
Master's grin widened, "so I can have fun taking it off my little
"Master...." Heero started in a protesting tone.
"I'll talk a walk for half an hour, " Duo interrupted, "I want my
Japanese girl waiting in my living room when I come back. Understand,
Kitten?" The last two words were said sternly and left Heero in no
doubt as to what would happen if he disobeyed his Master.
"Yes, Master," Heero answered meekly, if not sulkily.
"Don't forget to wear the wig, little girl," Duo threw the words as he
left the cottage.
Pervert, sadist, horny bastard. Heero cursed inwardly at the now
closed door and then at himself for feeling aroused at the thought of
doing the role playing again.
Exactly thirty minutes later, Duo stepped into the cottage and smiled
when he saw his slave standing in the living room. "Ah, you are very
pretty, my dear. I'm very lucky to have such a beautiful lady at my
The kimono was a bit rumpled from his Master's earlier exercises.
Heero had worn the wig, but there was no way he could fashion the
false hair like his Master had done that morning so he just left it
free, falling over his shoulders. Understanding that his Master had
returned to the cottage in his role as a perverted English lord, Heero
straightened and glared at him. "I'm here, but not by my choice."
"Oh, but it is." Duo approached his slave. "It's your own choice to
sell yourself to me for your family's sake. You could have refused and
married the rich royalty your father drooled over." He gathered the
kimono clothed slave into his arms and gave him a thoroughly deep
Heero responded eagerly for a few seconds before he remembered he was
supposed to play the virgin girl part. He stiffened purposely and
pulled away from his Master.
"And leave my family in ruins? We know for sure the rich royalty
won't lift a hand to help my family." Heero narrowed his eyes. "Or let
my younger sisters take my place as your whore? No, I have no choice
in this matter."
Duo tutted. "You're not a whore, dear." He reached for his slave.
Who stepped back and threw, "A slut, then."
Duo stood and tilted his head slightly, studying his quarry. "What has
got you so riled? You were more agreeable this afternoon, little
Heero huffed and looked away with a high chin, giving the perfect
impression of a woman who refused to answer to someone beneath her. He
had decided to make the Japanese girl uncooperative to make it harder
for his Master to bed her. It was a little revenge for making him
wear the kimono again. A rustle of clothes caught his ears and
curiously he glanced at his Master.
"What are you doing?" Heero stared in alarm at his Master who was
"I'm preparing to bed you, of course." Duo stepped forward, leaving
his shirt on the floor behind him.
"No!" Heero shouted as he stepped backward.
Duo smirked then. "Your mouth says no but your body knows where I want
you to be."
Looking around, Heero was dismayed as he realized his retreat had
brought him to the bedroom. With his attention on the room, Heero
forgot that the real threat was actually in front of him. His Master
of course didn't waste the chance. In a blink, Heero found himself
wrapped inside two strong arms and pasted again a bare and firm chest.
So much for making it harder for his Master.
"You'll be mine before the night is over, pretty girl, " Duo said
huskily and then kissed his captive passionately.
While the Japanese lady might dislike the kiss, Heero the slave loved
being kiss by his Master. When his Master's tongue slipped into his
mouth, Heero forgot all about his revenge and responded to the kiss
with equal passion. He even protested when his Master pulled away a
few seconds later.
Duo laughed and lifted his slave into his arms. "I know you want me."
Heero tried to glare as he was deposited on the bed but the vision of
his Master removing the rest of his clothes caught his breath.
Chestnut hair was a little ruffled from the walk on the beach. Firm
chest and six pack stomach rippled slightly as his Master moved. Not
to mention the hard and proud erection that protruded from between his
The pure virgin girl would be horrified at seeing the bare manhood,
but Heero could never feel horrified at the sight of his Master's
member. He was excited at the sight actually. So conditioned was he
that his mind assimilated the sight with pleasure. His body thrummed
in pleasant anticipation of having it inside him in one way or the
His sore ass, the traitor that it was, was quivering in eagerness
instead of tightening in fright. Heero admitted then and there that he
was really a slut, Duo's slut. And as perverted as Duo if his
eagerness for being buggered was any indication.
"Is this your first time seeing a man's cock?" Duo asked as he climbed
onto the bed, "Are you fascinated, dear?"
Heero swallowed and tried to stay in character. "It's disgusting..."
It should have been said in a revolted tone but it came out rather
weakly, even to Heero's own ears.
Duo grinned and planted his hands on either side of his slave's head.
His knees trapped Heero's legs between them. "You'll come to crave it
"I won't," Heero said, more convincingly than his previous statement.
His inner voice, however, cheerfully shouted, "I already do!"
Heero gasped as his Master nuzzled his neck. A soft "You smell good,"
reached his ears before he felt something wet sweep across his throat.
"And taste good too," Duo murmured as he pulled back.
"Stop it.." Heero protested feebly, still trying to maintain his role.
It wasn't fair, really. He had to act as if he didn't like the
treatment while his Master seemed to have blended perfectly with his
role. Then again, there was no difference between his Master and the
role he played. They both enjoyed being in control and they were both
Duo caressed his slave's cheek gently. "Don't worry, I'll take a good
care of you." He then moved his hand downward, took the obi, and
removed it. His hand moved back to his slave's neck only to trail down
to the chest, parting the kimono to Heero's sides in its wake.
Heero could hear his heart beats as his Master set aside his kimono
slowly. They were as loud as his Wing's alarm. He shuddered slightly
as his Master's fingers brushed against his bare chest, stomach, and
inner thighs, skipping his groin, much to Heero's frustration.
Figuring his Master deserved a token of resistance for that, Heero
raised his hands and started to push away the hovering figure.
His Master, however, wasn't surprised with his action. He only clucked
in mock disapproval and grabbed the obi he had removed earlier. He
made a quick job of restraining Heero's hands over his head to the
headboard with the obi as the rope. "Resistance is futile, my dear,"
Duo said and went back to his exploration.
"No underwear? You surprise me, my dear," came next as hands caressed
Heero's inner thighs.
Of course he wore no underwear. In fact, it had been quite a while for
Heero since he last wore underwear. Heero glared in indignation at his
Master but he wasn't able to keep the glare on his face longer than a
few minutes. The hands moved up and down his body, creating a pleasant
friction. A pair of damp lips joined the hands in exploration, making
it very hard for Heero to stay in his role. How the hell he was
supposed to act like a miserable and forced girl when he welcomed
every touch and kiss his Master bestowed on his body?
The lips found his right nipple and took it inside the mouth. Heero
gasped and completely forgot about his role. Any girl would be very
stupid to deny such intense pleasure and gentle touches Heero thought
as he arched his back, offering himself more to his Master. He could
feel his Master's tongue swirl around his nipple and trembled at the
great pleasure such a simple gesture evoked. The tongue was replaced
by teeth which nipped gently at his sensitive nub. Heero moaned
shamelessly and spread his legs apart, allowing his Master to settle
more firmly on him. However, his gesture caused his Master to withdraw
and start straightening. Heero made a loud protest when he felt cold
air hit his damp nipple. Without thinking, he brought his legs up and
hooked them behind his Master's back, keeping his Master from pulling
away any further.
"Ah, so you do want me, my dear," Duo said, sounding very pleased and
bent back down, seizing his slave's other nipple this time.
Heero sighed in pleasure and relief as he felt the damp cavern
envelope his left nipple. When he felt the teeth worrying his flesh,
he tightened his legs around his Master's waist and rode out the
pleasure he got from the treatment. His Master's fingers seized his
right nipple and played it like a finely tuned instrument. Heero threw
his head back as the pleasure started overwhelming him. When his
Master released his right nipple and seized his cock instead, Heero
was ready to explode.
"Nu uh, not so fast."
Heero whined in frustration when the hand and mouth abandoned his
nipple and cock. He had been teased to the edge since the morning and
hadn't been given any release. This was too much! He put pressure on
his legs, urging his Master to resume his ministrations, but his
Master wasn't budging an inch.
"Aren't you disgusted with me, my dear?"
Heero shook his head negatively. He could never be disgusted with his
Master. Even if he was still in his role, he would think the same.
"Why not?" his Master asked.
Heero let out a frustrated whimper and tugged at his bound hands. The
Japanese lady surely would have noticed how handsome the English lord
looked and how gentle he treated her. Any intelligent girl would know
that his Master had seen to her pleasure first rather than simply
taking what he wanted straight away. However, Heero was too close to
the edge to voice such a long explanation. He chose the more shorter
route to get his Master moving.
"Please..., " Heero begged, "Please..."
There was a pause then Heero felt the familiar weight settled back on
him. Heero sighed happily and when a mouth descended upon his, he
eagerly responded back.
"You already crave me, don't you, dear?" Duo said huskily when he
finally pulled away from the kiss. His hands slipped beneath his
slave's thighs and lifted them up to a better position for
"Yesssss, " Heero hissed happily at the feel of his Master's length
entering him slowly. He was thankful that he'd remembered to apply
extra lubricant before donning the kimono. Thanks to it and the
stretching from their earlier activities, he welcomed his Master's
entry as easy as an aroused woman would.
When his Master had settled to the hilt inside him, Heero tightened
his body and was pleased to hear his Master's hiss of pleasure.
"You're mine now, " his Master whispered fiercely and started moving.
Heero closed his eyes and abandoned himself to the sensation. He tried
bringing his hands down to hug his Master's shoulders, forgetting
their bound state. As it was, his movement was stopped prematurely.
Heero growled in irritation which suddenly turned into a surprised
yelp as his Master prodded his prostate. As more intense pleasure
surged through him, he unconsciously tugged at his hands again and
tightened his legs around his Master's waist. His hard cock bumped
into his Master's stomach with every thrust, creating more pleasant
friction and making its hard state obvious.
"Please.. I want to..." Heero mewled in frustration, not really
knowing what he was begging for.
"Yes," his Master panted and thrust harder into him. It seemed he knew
what Heero wanted. He grabbed Heero's cock and stroked it. "Come with
Heero arched his back up at the touch and yelled his Master's name.
His whole body tensed as he reached his completion. His Master's warm
fluid filled him a second later. Heero felt he was floating among
clouds, so happy and free. His landing back to earth was slow and
peaceful. He could feel his Master's warm body covering his, his
Master's breath brushing against his cheek and his Master's cock
softening inside him. Heero sighed happily and absently patted his
Master's back. His sight fell to the torn obi on both his wrists and
realized that he had broken his bindings during his ecstasy. However
he was too happy to care about the torn fabric. Heero closed his eyes
and felt his mouth stretched into a contented smile.
Heero was startled when the two words flew out of his mouth without
him planning to speak them. However, before he had time to freeze in
horror at his blurted words, his Master replied in a soft and tender
"Love you too."
The reply worked like a quilt for Heero, enveloping him in warmth that
turned his body mushy and his mind fuzzy. Of course, Heero sighed
happily and hugged his Master tightly. The English lord would have
loved the Japanese lady for him to have gone to such length to obtain
the said lady. Though he knew his Master was still in his role as the
English lord when those three words were spoken, Heero couldn't help
but feel happy at hearing them.
He hoped someday he would hear those words again. When they were not
Five minutes before midnight, Heero and Duo slipped out of the
cottage. Blending into shadows, they reached Dorothy's cottage without
interruption. Heero was back in his cat uniform while Duo was clad in
black. The lightness Heero had been feeling since the role playing
immediately vanished once he got a look at Dorothy's and Wufei's
"We have a problem, " said Dorothy once the door was closed behind
"Juno?" Duo asked as he sat down by the dining table.
Dorothy nodded and sat down across from him, motioning for Wufei to
sit to her right. Heero sat next to his Master, across from the
"We can't find her or her sub anywhere," Dorothy started her story.
"We went to her cottage this afternoon but there was no one answering
the door. I took a peek in the window but nothing seemed out of the
ordinary. Two hours ago, I sent Wufei to check the cottage again."
"There was no one in there," Wufei continued his Mistress'
explanation. "I didn't try to slip in. If their disappearance had
something to do with Snake, the cottage would surely be bugged."
Heero frowned at the news. While he didn't like Grant, he didn't want
something happening to the blonde Preventer and Haakon. Still, by
their disappearance it could very well mean that Snake was aware of
someone investigating him.
"I don't like this but I can not draw any more attention by asking
about Juno again. We have to go on like usual so as to not to raise
further suspicion," Dorothy voiced what was in their minds.
"I agree, " Duo said slowly. "We can't give Snake any notion that
there are more people involved in this mission other than Haakon and
Grant. We still have to determine which sponsor the Snake is and
follow him to his lair. Haakon and Grant are most likely kept in
Dorothy nodded in agreement. "I think Snake might keep them alive to
extract information from them. We better focus on discovering who
Snake is as soon as possible. Tell me what you have got on the
Duo proceeded to tell Dorothy and Wufei what information they had
collected about each sponsor. He also shared the theory he and Heero
had worked out based on the information.
"So one of them is lying, " Dorothy spoke when Duo was finished, "I
didn't get the information from Kira and Serpent as detailed as you
did but none of what they told me contradicts yours."
"Bronze didn't tell me much either, but what he told me supported the
other data we have on him," said Duo.
Wufei growled in irritation. "It appears to me that one of them is
lying. What would be the reason for that?"
"Maybe he had known there would be an investigation on him from the
start," Dorothy theorized.
Duo responded, "That meant he got the knowledge from inside, one of us
whom Une gathered for this mission." He paused for a while to let the
others absorb this before continuing, "However, I doubt Une would be
careless in choosing the members for this mission. We would have been
screened very carefully. From what I remember, all the Preventers
recruited for this mission had worked longer than Ross did and all of
them had a good work record. The chances of one of us being a spy is
Heero frowned as he processed the information. If there was no spy in
Preventer, how could Snake know to lie when asked about his recent
past? And how could he maintain the lie so that others who knew him
quite well didn't contradict his words? Heero had seen several people
greet either sponsor in a quite friendly way, indicating their
familiarity. These people may know the sponsors' activities and
histories. They might remember whether a sponsor kicked out his sub
and took in a new one recently. While it was hard to pry such
information on this kind of group where discretion was imperative, it
was impossible to lie about such a big thing without causing
contradictions from others.
Now that Heero thought about it again, Snake wasn't a stupid person
and would be unlikely to give a lie that was easily determined. Worse,
the lie could backfire and attract Preventer's suspicion instead. So
the sponsors were most likely telling the truth and that meant none of
them had taken Ross as their slave.
However, Ross had been interrogated so thoroughly that Heero doubted
he could tell a lie without Preventer's knowing.
So Ross was telling the truth and the sponsors were telling the truth
Where did that leave them? Heero frowned deeper. If everyone was
telling the truth, what happened to Haakon and Grant? If none of the
sponsors was Ross' Master, could Snake be someone other than a
sponsor? But the sponsors were suspects because Ross blurted out his
Master was a sponsor of this event and only the sponsors had enough
power and money to do rebellion. Heero growled in agitation at the
complicated matter. If only they knew more about Snake's identity....
Ross' Master had to be someone very harsh and had frightened Ross so
much that the weak spy didn't pry too much into his identity.
An image flashed in Heero's head as he thought of which sponsor was
the harshest. He blinked and straightened as he processed what his
mind was conjuring. The image caused him to look at the current
problem in different light. Of course! How stupid he was to not think
about such a possibility.
The word and a hand on his shoulder distracted him from his rapid
thinking. Heero turned to his Master immediately. It was rare for Duo
to call him by name and he wasn't about to ignore the calling. "Yes,
His Master was looking at him in light curiosity. "Care to share your
Heero looked around to see Dorothy and Wufei eyed him with the same
curiosity. Well, it seemed he had been thinking silently longer than
he'd thought. After nodding as his answer to his Master's question,
Heero told them his new theory.
"What if one of the sponsors isn't as dominant as we think? What if he
actually was a submissive to someone more dominant?" Heero could see
the gears in Duo's and Dorothy's minds turn with his words while
Wufei's face showed his confusion.
"Are you saying, " Dorothy said slowly, "that there is someone else
controlling the sponsor and that someone is the Snake?"
"Yes, it's possible," Duo murmured. "Snake can tell Ross that he
sponsored the event because he controlled the sponsor himself. After
all a Master owns everything the slave has."
"Wait; how can a Dom be submissive?" Wufei asked.
"You have so much to learn, 'Fei." Dorothy patted her slave's
shoulder, "Some people can be a Dom at one time and a sub at another
time, depends on whether they want to control or be controlled. I know
several couples that switch their position every month or so."
"Are we going to switch as well?" Wufei tried to appear unconcerned
when voicing his question but Heero could hear the hopeful note that
the Chinese Preventer didn't manage to conceal. Heero had no doubt the
Doms could hear it as well.
Dorothy smirked. "No, I'm completely a Dom." At her slave's
crestfallen look, she added, "but if you behave well, someday I might
let you be a Master for a day."
Wufei wanted to argue about the length of his dominance but Dorothy
"Back to the topic, if one of the sponsors is a slave to someone, how
can we determine which sponsor it is and who his Master is?"
"Actually, I have a suspect," Heero looked guiltily at his Master. "We
know that Wind was a Dom."
"How did you know?" Wufei frowned at them.
Heero hesitated and glanced at his Master. Duo sighed, running his
hand through his bangs, and said in flat tone, "He was once my
"What!?" Wufei's eyes bulged out. "I thought you were hmphhh.."
Dorothy had slapped her hand over her slave's mouth, silencing him.
She then hissed dangerously, "shut up, 'Fei."
Wufei shut up.
Dorothy removed her hand from Wufei and turned to Duo. "Could Wind be
Heero saw his Master send the blonde woman a grateful smile before
answering. "Yes. He is certainly as cruel as Ross described his
Dorothy's expression at hearing Duo's answer was one Heero instantly
recognized. Protectiveness. It was one of many things that he felt
when he heard his Master's story about his experience with Wind. Snake
or not, Wind was going to pay heavily for what he had done to Heero's
"Let's put Wind as our number one suspect for now." Dorothy thought
for a while before continuing. "I propose we search Wind's resident
for further proof."
"I agree," Duo responded. "We might also find out what happened to
Haakon and Grant."
"But what if our suspicions are wrong?" Wufei spoke up, all traces of
his surprise was gone. He was every inch the steadfast Preventer. "We
might ruin our cover."
"Two of us need to watch and distract the sponsors then while they're
distracted the other two do the search," Heero replied.
"We will distract the sponsors," Dorothy decided, "You two do the
"Roger," Duo nodded. "Anything else?"
Dorothy shook her head. "I think that's it. "
That was the end of their discussion. After the good byes were said,
Heero followed his Master back into their cottage. They cleaned up for
the night and went to bed. Heero snuggled into his Master and closed
"You have been quiet since we got back here, " Duo murmured.
Heero tensed slightly at the comment but quickly made himself relax.
However, the gesture didn't fool his Master at all.
"What's on your mind?"
"Noth..." Heero started to say but stopped when his Master tightened
his arms around him.
"Don't lie to me, Heero."
Heero swallowed. With Haakon and Grant missing, he realized the
mission of uncovering Snake's identity had turned into a much more
dangerous mission. And with the realization came the fear of having to
kill again. "I just want this mission to end soon, Master," Heero
"We all do," Duo said softly and patted his shoulder gently. "Don't
worry, we will complete this mission soon. Sleep now, we need to be at
our best for tomorrow."
Soothed by his Master's words and touches, Heero burrowed himself
further into his Master's embrace. He slipped his arms under his
Master's and hugged him back. His Master placed a tender kiss on his
head, making Heero sigh. He wished they could stay like this.
