My Fair Lady
Lady Une watched as five boys and one girl took a seat in front of her. "You have a new mission."
"Which ex OZ do we have to kill this time?" Heero asked to the point. All six of them had joined Preventers once the Eve war ended; it had been a year but there were still some of ex OZ colonels who wanted to fight, keeping the Preventers busy silencing them all.
"Let me explain the mission, first." Une answered. "We got information
from our spy that an ex OZ colonel managed to get some supplies of
weapons from black market and carried them through ships, disguising
them as ordinary cargo. There are three ships they use to store the
weapons and each pair of you will go to the ships and steal or disable
the weapons. Wufei with Sally, Trowa with Quatre, and Heero with Duo."
"We are working together again, Heero." Duo grinned and put his arm
around the Japanese boy's shoulders. "Be nice to me, okay?" Heero only
grunted, but did not shove away the arm leisurely draped around his
"Lady Une, I don't think we need to work in pair for this mission." Wufei spoke up.
"Actually no, but that ex colonel is the one who is making you have to work in pairs." Une was ready to grin at the confused looks she had received from the youths in front of her. "Since he's going to disguise the weapons as ordinary cargo, he used ordinary ships instead of military cruisers. That means, the ships will be carrying passengers on them, so there are innocent civilians aboard preventing us from destroying the target. Since their security is very tight, we can't infiltrate as workers on those ships. The only way to get on is to be a passenger."
"Very smart of him." Quatre nodded in agreement. "But it still doesn't
explain why we have to work in pairs. Are the ships too large to be
"No, not because of that. You see the ex colonel disguised the three
ships as honeymoon cruise vessels and they only receive married
couples as passengers. So you all have to be married in order to get
on the ship." Une tried hard not to giggle when she watched the
expressions of the pilots while the explanation sank in. Wufei and
Heero dropped their jaws while Sally and Duo grinned. Trowa and Quatre
just smiled knowingly.
"WHAT??" Wufei was the first one to open his mouth. He looked at Sally "You mean I have to take this onna as my wife?" That earned him a cuff on the back his head.
"Exactly Wufei." Une struggled hard to keep her composure in check. "You'll be her husband. As for the other pairs, one of each pair has to crossdress." She looked at the blond boy. "Quatre, you'll be the wife for Trowa."
"Ryokai." Quatre nodded. That was not a problem for him since it would
enable him to stay together with Trowa. He looked up as the banged boy took
his hand and squeezed it gently. This mission would be a fun.
Une turned her head to the last couple. Heero found he had a very bad
feeling for this mission. "Heero, you'll be the wife for Duo."
Heero blinked and looked at Duo to find the braided boy grinning
widely, arm still on his shoulders. He quickly shoved Duo's arm off
him and turned to Une, giving her a full death glare. "Why me?"
"Heero, I wanted to put you in husband role but after watching your
attitude for a year, I know, despite your Perfect Soldier nickname,
Dr. J didn't train you to be perfect in this one aspect." Une watched
as the Japanese boy scowled. "You have no experience in this matter, not to mention you weren't involved in many social relationships this year, except with your computer and the other ex gundam pilots. I don't think you have any idea how to act as a husband or what it
means to be a married couple. Duo is more suitable for this role. He can lead you and cover your mistakes."
Heero blushed and scowled at the same time. "I can read some books."
"No time for that, the ships will set sail tonight and all of you still have to prepare your wedding ceremony."
"We have to what??" Wufei cut in nearly shrieking.
"That colonel is really careful in accepting passengers. He wants a legally married couple, black on white, not just some data in a computer since he knows how good we are in hacking the database. So each of you have to get a priest or whoever can produce a wedding certificate and get married." Une wished she had a camera to take a picture of Heero and Wufei's expressions as they imitated goldfish perfectly.
"But....." Wufei finally found his voice
"No buts. I have checked your data, all of you have reached 18, which is the legal age for marriage." Une hoped she could hold her stern expression for the temptation to laugh was really strong. "You can get a divorce later if you want to." Judging from Heero and Wufei partners'
expression of determination, Une was sure it would be a long time before they would get divorced if at all. "The name of ship you'll infiltrate and the details of the mission have been sent to your email. Check it later. For now, go get married. That's an order."
"Ninmu ryokai." Came four happy tones and two protesting grunts.
"Let's go get married, Hee-chan." Duo grabbed the Japanese boy, who was still hoping his death glare could kill his boss for assigning him to this mission
"Duo." Une stopped the braided boy.
"Make sure Heero gets the best for his honeymoon." Une winked.
The ex-Deathscythe pilot blinked and then grinned widely while Heero was blushing furiously.
"My wife will get the best!" Duo exclaimed happily and pulled the reluctant Japanese boy with him, followed by three happy youths and one grudging Chinese boy.
Heero scowled deeply behind his veil, cursing a goggled old man who
didn't teach him about this marriage thing, a braided boy who would be his
husband, and the damn wedding gown he was wearing. It was a losing
battle with Quatre, Sally, and Duo to refuse to wear a white gown.
Quatre and Sally had chosen their own gown before choosing Heero's.
And to the boy's embarrassment, they also took liberty in buying a bra
and panties, making Heero blush all the way while they shopping.
After finishing with the dress, applying make up, and choosing rings,
the six of them went to the church, grabbing a random priest to wed
Wufei and Sally went first and then Quatre and Trowa. As the priest
was in front of them, ready to bless Duo and him as husband and wife;
he looked at his soon to be husband, who was holding his hands and was
looking at him passionately. Opposite of him Duo was wearing black
tuxedo. The boy's hair was tied but not braided. It was let loosely
down his back, adding to his charm and beauty. Heero blinked and shoved
his stray thought far away. Duo was his friend. This wedding was a
mission. That's all..... but Duo *was* cool....
"Duo Maxwell, do you..."
The priest blinked at the quick answer. He shrugged and turned to the
bride, "Heero Yuy, do you accept Duo Maxwell as your husband...."
"I do." Heero quickly replied. He didn't want to hear the rest of the
sentence. He had suggested using a fake name, but all of them save him
agreed to use their real names instead. Slightly irritated, he offered
his ring finger to accept the ring and then put another identical ring
on Duo's finger.
"With this, I pronounce you husband and wife." The priest gestured to
Duo; "You can open the veil and kiss your bride now."
This was it. Heero found himself fidgeting. He would rather face hundreds of mobile suits, jump from a thirty story building, or self-destruct than facing this moment. He was going to have his first kiss. With a boy! And not to mention the said boy was now his husband. He contemplated a plan to kill a certain female boss slowly and painfully for assigning him to this mission.
A pair of hands lifted his veil and snapped him from his thoughts.
Heero was surprised when the said hands cupped his face and held it so
he was looking straight at his husband. Duo was smiling and staring at
him gently. "I love you, Heero."
Heero was stunned and blinked as he felt Duo's soft lips on his. It
was a sweet, soft and gentle kiss. He swore he could feel everything
Duo wanted to say to him had been concluded in one single kiss.
Despite his lack of experience, Heero knew this kiss meant so much for
Duo. Following his feelings, Heero closed his eyes and kissed back,
not aware of the cheering voices from Quatre and Sally and absolutely
oblivious to Wufei and Trowa's acknowledging smiles.
When the kiss ended, Heero slowly opened his eyes and saw Duo smiling
widely. The American boy looked so happy as if he just got a gift from
Heaven. "Hello, Mrs. Maxwell." Duo whispered affectionately while he
caressed Heero's cheek.
"Hello, Mr. Maxwell." Heero murmured and then bowed his head, blushing
from head to toe as he realized he was now married to Duo. He was
Heero Maxwell now, until he got divorced. And somehow, Heero felt a
divorce was not a thing he would get soon.
He had predicted he would be called as Mrs. Maxwell by the time he
stepped into the ship. He had also predicted that he would have to
wear a dress during this cursed honeymoon cruise. He even predicted he
would have to sleep in one bed with Duo, but what he didn't predict
was to find a red heart shaped bed in the middle of the room.
Heero stared dumbfounded at the bed while his braided husband went
around, inspecting the room before joining him in studying the bed.
Duo was wearing a black shirt and black tight pants while he was wearing
the dress Sally had chosen for him. A white long sleeve shirt with
blue pastel blazer and the same colored skirt that reached above his
"Wow! A vibrating and spinning bed!" Duo plopped down on the bed,
smiling at his wife.
"Vibrating bed?" Heero asked out of curiosity.
"You don't know about it?" Duo asked, amusement that was clearly shown
in his violet eyes.
Heero shook his head.
Duo just smiled "Une is right. You have no experience at all in this
Heero growled and decided not to argue with the braided boy. He was
about to storm out the room when a hand reached around his waist,
stopping his movement and pulling his back against a solid chest.
"May I know where my wife wants to go?"
"I'm your wife on the paper only." Heero grunted. He felt Duo fall
silent for a few seconds before he was turned to face his husband.
"Heero, I know it's because of mission that you married me, but I
don't. You know I don't lie. I run, I hide, but I never tell a lie. I
married you because I wanted to."
Heero was shocked at the sudden confession. His mouth was opened but
he couldn't make out a word. He stared at Duo as the braided boy
cupped his face. "I told you before. I love you, Heero. I want to
spend the rest of my life with you." The braided boy moved forward and
planted a soft kiss on Heero's forehead.
Heero finally managed to get the gears on his brain turned on and was
about to speak when Duo put two fingers on his lips. "Listen to me
first. I know you thought I shouldn't feel like this for you because
we have the same gender, right?"
Heero was surprised that Duo could guess his thought, making him nod
instead of answering.
"Well, I don't care about the gender. I've loved you from the start. I
love your stubbornness and your strong heart. I love the way you think
and act, save the suicidal ones of course. Your acceptance and
willingness in kissing me flares my hope. You seem to understand the
feelings that I put through the kiss. I really want to be your husband
so can you give me a chance?"
Heero didn't answer and Duo took it as a green sign to continue.
"Please consider me as your husband during this cruise. I'll treat you
as my life mate, my spouse, the one I want to spend my life with.
Maybe you didn't notice it, but you signed our wedding paper twice.
That's because I asked the priest to make another paper where we are
wedded as male and male not male and female, so we're really married
legally. I know it sounds so forceful, but if at the end of this
cruise, you find you're really not interested in living together
with me, than I....." Duo paused for a second before continuing. "I'll
make the divorce arrangements."
Heero's mind ran one mile per second, trying to digest all Duo's
words. He could see the hope in those violet eyes and thought about
the suggestion seriously. Looking at the waiting boy, Heero decided to
follow his feelings.
"Okay, I'll be your spouse during this cruise." Heero nodded his
consent. That earned him a very wide beaming smile from his husband.
And somehow, Heero knew that smile was only reserved for him.
"Arigato, Heero." Duo kissed Heero lightly.
"But you still have to remember, we are here on a mission, not really
on a honeymoon."
Duo rolled his eyes. "Aye, my Lady."
Heero felt the urge to pinch Duo's nose for that and gave up into the
urge, pinching his husband's nose quitee hard. Duo, of course, wanted
revenge and tickled Heero. Laughter quickly filled the room as they
turned into a battle of pinching and tickling. When the battle ceased,
they somehow had ended up lying on the bed but neither of them cared
since they were trying to steady their breaths. Heero lay on his side
while Duo sprawled on the bed.
Still panting slightly, Duo rolled to face his wife and put an arm on
Heero's waist. "Now, can I know where my wife wants to go?"
"I'm going to check where the weapons are hidden."
"It'll be suspicious if you walk alone the ship without being
accompanied by your husband."
"You're right. Well, accompany me, then." Heero was about to sit up
when Duo's hand pushed him to lie down again.
"We can do it later after dinner. Right now, I think I better take a
nap for an hour first to recharge my energy." Duo yawned and then
grinned sleepily. "Of course it will be more wonderful if I have my
wife to sleep with me."
Heero blushed as a picture of him snuggling next to Duo came to him. He climbed off the bed and retrieved his laptop from their luggage. "I think I want to report to Une that we made it into the ship."
"Okay....." Duo yawned again and closed his eyes. Heero looked at the
sleeping figure on the bed and then at the laptop as he put it on the
table. He looked back at the bed and felt something was missing from the
way lie Duo sleeping. The bed was too large to sleep in alone. Heero
looked at the laptop once again before shrugging and climbing onto the
bed once more. The report could wait.
He lay next to Duo, facing the braided boy, and watched as Duo opened
his eyes, smiling sweetly. One hand came up onto his waist, pulling
him closer to Duo and a kiss was bestowed on his forehead before the
violet eyes closed once again. Heero found this was the first time he
was really sure he had done the right thing. Smiling, he closed his
eyes and joined his husband in the dream world.
"Cool, so you just married today and are now on your honeymoon. Shan and I have
been married for five years but never went on a honeymoon until now
because of the war. Thank God, the Gundam pilots had managed to stop
Heero watched as the man spoke eagerly with Duo. They came out of
their room to have dinner and sat down at the same table as the
Japanese couple, Shan and Kou. He didn't mind having conversation with
them but sometimes he found himself blushing at their blunt questions
about his and Duo's relationship.
He straightened the rippling cloth on the sides of his dress. The
ripples were annoying; not to mention the dress was sleeveless,
allowing some perverts to stare at his bare shoulders openly. The
Japanese boy cursed himself for letting a certain blond boy choose the
clothes for him.
"Heero.... it's a male name, isn't it?" Kou asked bluntly, making
"Ah, my wife's father adores the great Heero Yuy so much that he gave
his daughter the same name." Duo answered smoothly. For once, Heero
thanked that now his name was Heero Maxwell, not Heero Yuy or he would
get more trouble trying to explain his name.
"So when was your first kiss?" Shan's question made Heero blush at
Duo grinned and answered. "Five hours ago."
"What? You meant to tell me that you never kissed that lovely wife of
yours until the marriage ceremony? Whoa, I don't think I could manage
to hold myself back from kising such a cute lady."
"Kou, dear. You're embarrassing her." Shan put her hand on her
Heero blushed to the tip of his hair. Cute lady. He wasn't cute!
Duo just chuckled and held Heero's hand, kissing it gently. "It's okay
Shan. I love watching her blushing. She is sooo cute."
Heero gave his husband a death glare but it had no effect on Duo. The
braided youth kissed him lightly on the lips instead and then resumed
"Excuse me for a minute, I want to go to the rest room." Shan stood up
and looked at Heero. "Heero, will you accompany me?"
Heero glanced at Duo, who nodded his head, and then stood up,
following Shan into the rest room. He waited for Shan and washed his
hands, blushing slightly as he noticed how many women were there,
fixing their clothes and make-up.
"Heero, sorry to make you wait." Shan came out of the toilet and
smiled at him.
"It's okay. What do you want to talk to me about?" Heero was not a
fool. He knew Shan asked him to accompany her for a purpose.
Shan smiled. "You're a smart girl. I watched you during the dinner and
I guessed this night will be your first time, am I right?"
"First time?" Heero frowned. "Oh, you mean..." The Japanese boy
blushed again, already losing count how many times he had blushed already today.
"First time you'll have a sexual relationship, yes." Shan smiled
gently and put one hand on Heero's shoulder. "Don't worry, I think
Duo'll go very slowly and carefully with you. I can see he loves you
very much. Of course, it'll hurt for the first time but after that,
I'm sure you'll have the greatest pleasure."
"Uhm.. thanks." Heero blushed even redder. He didn't believe he was
talking about this with a woman he just met an hour ago.
"There's nothing to be ashamed of. You have to be proud that you'll
give him the thing you only can give once in your lifetime. Just relax
and let him do the work." Shan patted Heero's shoulder reassuringly
before she ushered Heero toward the door. "Come on, let's go out
before your husband decides to come in here and retrieve you."
"What were you talking about in there?" Duo asked, while leading his
wife onto the dance floor. As soon as Heero and Shan came out from the
restroom, Duo asked Heero to dance with him. That wasn't a problem for
Heero, except he had to remind himself that this time he wasn't the
one who led the dance.
"Talking?" Heero offered succinctly, preferring not to talk about it.
"Judging from her mischievous smirk, I'm sure she told you something
in there." Duo pulled Heero closer to him, grinning slightly as if he
knew what Shan had told Heero.
"Uhm, just some woman talk." Heero blushed and hid his face on the
crook between Duo's neck and shoulder.
"Was it about sex?" Duo murmured near Heero's ear. They were slow
"Uhm.." Heero could feel his face was hot once again.
"Don't worry, I won't do it if you don't want to." Duo whispered and
caressed Heero's back soothingly.
"She said it hurt for the first time. Does it hurt too for a male?"
Heero lay his head on Duo's shoulder and could feel Duo nod. Heero
smiled. Strange, although he had known it would hurt, a part of him
wanted to try it, wanted to feel the union with Duo. He knew as long
as it was Duo, everything would be fine. He felt peaceful and safe,
and never wanted to let go of that feeling again.
They danced in silence for half an hour, enjoying each other's
presence. Duo felt warm, like a home for Heero. The Japanese boy
unconsciously sighed in contentment and nuzzled his husband's neck.
Duo smiled and tightened his hands around his wife, singing the song that
accompanied their dance softly near Heero's ear.
I can't believe I could be the one
To be with you under morning sun
See the moon and the nightingale
Sing along with us
Oh baby baby
Duo kissed Heero's cheek gently and continued singing.
You're the only one
Fills my fantasy room
Never gonna stop
all the fantasy
I'll live my life
I'll live my life for you
Heero purred as Duo's soft tone brushing deep inside his heart. If
only time could stop....
"I love you, Heero." Those words were whispered so low that Heero
would have almost missed them if he had been an ordinary boy, not a trained
gundam pilot. The Japanese boy smiled and kissed Duo's cheek lightly.
"We still have a mission to do, love." Heero unconsciously used the
word 'love' that earned him another smile from his husband.
Feeling the sun try to pry his eyes open, Heero frowned, not wanting
to wake up from his peaceful sleep. Then he was aware of an arm and a
leg over his torso. He searched his memory for the event last night.
After the dancing, he and Duo had walked around the ship, pretending
to see the stars, but after two hours of searching, they still hadn't
found the location of the weapons. Disappointed, they went back to
their room and Heero fell asleep before his head touched the pillow.
"Morning, love." Something wet touched his dry lips and Heero opened
his eyes slowly to see his smiling husband's face some inches away
from him. "Did you sleep well?"
Heero blinked and nodded, noticing Duo was only wearing black pants.
He quickly ran check on his own clothes and was surprised to find he
was still fully clothed in his dress.
"I won't touch you without your permission." Duo reassured him and
caressed his cheek lovingly. "So what's the plan today?"
"Huh?" Heero stared flabbergasted. His mind was giving him a little difficulty in
cooperating now that he was enjoying Duo's caress on his cheek.
Funny, he felt he didn't want to leave the bed.
"We haven't found the weapon location, remember? What are we going to
do now?" Duo planted a kiss on Heero's neck. "To be honest I prefer to
spend all day like this with my wife."
Heero groaned as he remembered his mission and reached for his pillow
to bury his head beneath it. He still wanted to sleep. It was very
rare for him to have a very good sleep like this.
"I recall someone said we are on a mission, not on a honeymoon." Heero
growled at Duo's words and heard Duo's chuckles of amusement through
the pillow. Then he felt the bed shift and the arm and leg on his
torso disappeared. Heero was about to turn around when a hand pushed
him down as a kiss was bestowed on the back of his neck. "Just rest
some more. I'll take a bath first so you still can doze off for about
The hand was gone. Heero could feel a weight leave the bed and heard
soft steps of Duo heading to the bathroom. Heero could hear the shower
being turned on and stretched in the bed. He didn't feel like sleeping
again. The sleep wouldn't be the same without Duo. Was it love that
made him feel like this? He didn't know for sure... or did he?
Heero had booted up his laptop when Duo came out of the bathroom. He
looked up from where he was working on his computer and was mesmerized
by the sight of his husband. Duo was only covered by a towel around
his waist. His long hair was wet and unbound, reaching his waist.
Duo smiled and approached Heero. He stopped behind Heero, who was
sitting on the chair and tilted his wife's head to give those delicate
lips a passionate kiss. Heero's eyes widened in surprised before they
were closing as he kissed his husband back.
"Reporting to Une?" Duo murmured an inch away from his spouse's mouth.
"Aah." Heero opened his eyes and looked straight to the violet eyes.
He could smell Duo's lavender shampoo and wondered how it felt to run
his hands through the long damp hair. The Japanese boy touched the
long strands beside Duo's face, noticing how soft the hair was. He
noticed Duo's smile and blushed as he realized what he was doing.
He had let Duo kiss him ..repeatedly..... and kissed back. Heero
blushed redder, as Duo treated him like he had promised, Heero found
he also treated Duo as his husband. It seemed so natural, so right. It
was only a day but he felt he had gotten used to this role. Being
Duo's spouse wasn't bad, really not bad at all.
A beep from his laptop saved him from blushing even redder. Heero
released Duo's hair and read the incoming message. "Keep searching,
you may want to wait for a few days before starting the mission so it
won't make you suspicious." Heero blinked as he realized that
"So we have a real honeymoon for a few days while we are waiting, ne?" Heero
blushed as Duo could guess his thoughts. He let out a gasp of surprise
at his chair being spun around, facing his husband. Duo was bending
over him so he had to look up to meet those violet eyes. "What do you
want to do on the second day of our honeymoon, love?"
"To do?" Heero asked, frowning. He didn't know what to do, but he knew
what he wanted. He wanted Duo to be with him.
"Well, there are some facilities on this ship. There's a sauna,
message room, indoor spor and fitness room and a movie theater."
Heero frowned deeper. He didn't know what to choose. "What about you,
Duo? What do you want to do?"
"I want to accompany my spouse wherever he goes and show him whatever
he wants me to see." Duo smiled and caressed Heero's messy hair
"If I want to stay at this room all day?"
"Then I'll stay with you."
Heero looked at Duo and contemplated for a while before deciding what
he wanted. He wanted Duo, he was sure of it now. But how far? He
wanted Duo to touch him, to caress him, to kiss him, and to.... Heero
blushed again and bowed his head.
"What is it, love?" Duo's hand shifted to caress Heero's cheek,
encouraging the Japanese boy.
"Make love to me." Heero mumbled and felt his face as red as a boiled
crab. He felt the hand on his cheek pause for a moment before it
lifted his chin and Duo's eyes searched him.
"You want me to take you?"
"I'm your spouse and you're my husband. I want to know how it feels to
make love with my husband." Heero blurted out, blushing from head till
"Heero..." Duo kissed him softly. "I want you. I want to do it but not
"No?" Heero was confused. Wasn't this what Duo wanted?
"No." Duo smiled sadly. "I want to do it when you accept me as your
real husband. I want you to let me do it because you love me, not just
because you want to know how it feels. This is a very important moment
for me and for you too, so it should be spent with the person you
really love, not with a husband on paper only."
Heero looked long at his husband, contemplating his words. Duo let
him; still caressing Heero's cheek with one hand while the other hand
covered Heero's hand. Kuso, he wasn't good at words but it seemed it
was the time to tell Duo how he really felt about the braided boy. The
feelings he had buried down and never once admitted them, even to
himself, until he found out how much he enjoyed Duo's companionship
and how Duo felt about him.
Suddenly he remembered the chorus of the song accompanying their dance
last night. It was perfect and really suited to express his feelings.
This time, it was his turn to sing for Duo. He didn't know how good
his voice was but he would give it a try. This was for Duo, his
husband. Real husband.
Heero took a breath and sang straight into the song's chorus, not
bother with the opening since the words that he wanted to tell Duo
were in the chorus.
Thank you for loving me baby
He watched as Duo's eyes widened and knew Duo recognized the song.
You'll always be the one who drives me crazy
I think this is a gift from God to have you here.
The braided boy smiled and kept caressing his spouse's cheek,
listening intently as he sang.
Thank you for loving me baby
I treasure all your love and all the things we share
Heero watched as the violet eyes before him glow brighter with
happiness. They became closer as he sang the last line.
And I wanna tell you how much I love you....
Right after he sang the last word, Heero felt soft lips touch his.
Heero closed his eyes and leaned against the chair, surrendering to
the kiss. He could feel what Duo wanted to tell him that he couldn't
say with words, no matter how resourceful his braided husband was with
words. He could feel it by the way Duo's lips caressed the surface of
his face before returning to his mouth once again. He too kissed back,
pouring all his feelings for the braided boy into the sweet surrender.
A wet tip stuck itself between his lips and Heero acted on instinct,
opening his mouth to welcome the wet intruder. He felt Duo bend
forward, hands covering his own hands on each of armchair, while
exploring his mouth. Heero gasped in surprised as Duo's tongue found
his, coaxing it to dance together inside his mouth. Duo's hands
slipped beneath Heero's back and thighs, lifting the Japanese boy from
the chair. Heero wound his arms around Duo's neck, not wanting to
break the kiss, but eventually they had to break to let the air fill
Heero looked at his grinning husband, still panting slightly. That
grin seemed to want to tell him something. "What?"
"Mind if I want to make love with my spouse?" Duo asked innocently.
Heero blushed and shook his head. He tilted his head up to capture
Duo's mouth again when .....
Both of them cursed as the knocking sound broke the spell and ruined
KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
Sighing heavily, Duo released his spouse to let Heero stand up and
answer the intruder. The Japanese boy stomped toward the door while
trying to find the best method to annihilate the intruder. A swirl of
red hair pushed in as soon as Heero opened the door, making him blink
in surprise. "What the..."
"Please help me." A redhaired woman cut in and made her way into the
room, straight to the half naked Duo. Heero let out a surprise gasp as
he saw the woman threw herself into Duo's arms. His Duo. He could feel
a fire start inside him and glared at the woman deathly while shutting
the door a little too hard.
The braided boy noticed the deadly glare of his spouse and pushed the
woman away. "Uhm lady, look.."
"Please, help me." The woman looked up at Duo and to Heero's
irritation, she pasted herself against Duo's bare chest. Without
thinking, he approached the woman and yanked her apart from Duo,
pushing her to sit down on the chair he had occupied before.
"Sit here and calm down, then you can tell us what you want." Heero
looked sharply at the stunned woman, who only could nod obediently. A
hand encircled his waist and Heero let it pull him away from the
woman, knowing whose hand was it.
Soft breath murmured near Heero's ear, "Don't be jealous, love."
Heero blushed as he realized he had acted on jealousy. He sat down on
the bed across the chair and watched as Duo put on a bathrobe before
asking the still stunned woman. "What's your name, lady?"
The woman blinked in realization, making Heero growl lowly at the
desperate look she put before answering Duo's question. "I'm Julia
Lowell. Please you have to help me." She reached for Duo's hand but
Duo held up his hand and walked away.
The braided boy moved to stand next to the bed where Heero was
sitting, feeling happy at the woman's disappointed look. "I'm Duo
Maxwell, and this is my wife, Heero. If you have calmed down, you can
tell us what happened."
"I...uh...." The woman stammered, trying to arrange her words.
However before she managed to get out the right word, the door to
their room was knocked on again.
Heero and Duo looked at each other. At Duo's nod, Heero got up and
opened the door, only to have a gun being pointed in front of his
face. The man, who held the gun, pushed Heero and entered the room,
locking the door behind him. "Don't move and hold up your hands." The
man looked at Heero dangerously.
The Japanese boy held up his hands and glanced at his husband, hoping
Duo could find a way to disarm the man, but he was surprised, he saw Duo
also hold up his hands. Heero narrowed his eyes as he realized Julia
was pointing another gun to Duo. What was exactly going on here?
"Tie her, Rob." Julia ordered the man while she kept pointing her gun
The man called Rob quickly tied Heero's hands behind his back with the
ropes he produced from his pocket. Heero knew they could easily beat
these two intruders but that meant their covers would be blown. No
ordinary couple could handle two intruders armed with guns so he let
himself be tied by the man.
While the man secured the ropes around Heero's hands, Julia ordered
Duo to change his clothes before tying him. Heero growled and gave the
woman his best death glare as Duo was forced to change clothes in
front of them and that bitch seemed to enjoy the show. Heero quickly
put the woman in the top of his to kill list.
"All clear, Julia. We are all alone in this ship." Rob grinned at the
red headed woman.
Heero and Duo just watched the couple checking every room in the ship
using the wide screen monitor in the control room. Duo was tied to the
chair while Heero, to his exasperation, was still held by the man
around his waist. He could feel Duo's dark gaze on Rob and knew the
man had very little chance to survive Shinigami's wrath later.
From what he heard from their conversation, Heero had gathered that
this couple was actually ex soldiers of OZ. They got information about
this ship carrying weapons and intended to hijack it to build their
army. It was ironic that the remains of OZ had split up and each of
them fought against each other.
The couple had brought them into the control room and used them as
hostages to force the captain, crew and passengers of the ship to
leave the ship using the safety boats. So now only four of them left in
"Good, Rob. We have about two hours to move this ship into our base
before the government realizes what has happened." Julia nodded in
satisfaction after she confirmed Rob's statement and worked on the
computer to direct the ship to head to their base.
"After I finish putting the coordinates, we can play with them to kill
the time until we reach our base." Julia smiled slyly and looked at
Duo. Heero growled, knowing what the woman intended to do. Suddenly he
jumped in surprise as the hand on his waist moved down and kneaded his
"It's so smart of you to choose this young couple as hostages, Julia."
Rob leered and kneaded Heero's bottom again, while his mouth set to licking
Heero's bare shoulder. In reflex, Heero wriggled, trying to dodge the
prying hand and mouth, but another hand came out to circle his waist,
holding him still in place. Heero could feel the man's hand sneak
beneath his dress. He was about to tear the rope that tied him and
give the man the lesson he would never forget when Duo spoke up...
from behind the man.
"Let her go." Duo's voice was cold and deadly. Heero felt the man
release him without protest and turned around to see Duo had a knife
on the man's throat. He blinked in surprise and turned to where he
last saw Julia only to see the woman was pinned to the wall by some
knives stabbing into her clothes. He knew Duo could free himself from
the ropes, but when did Duo learn that knife throwing ability from
"Are you okay, Heero?" Heero turned around and blinked again as Rob
had slumped on the floor, whimpering in pain. The bruises were all
over his body. Heero assumed Shinigami must have given the man some
lessons. "You wasted no time in bullying him, did you?" Heero
raised an eyebrow to his husband.
"That will teach him not to touch my wife." Duo grinned and cut the
ropes around Heero's hands with the knife he held.
Heero flexed his hands and turned to Julia again, grinning slightly.
"And I think I have to teach her not to touch my husband."
Julia's eyes widened in fear as Heero approached her. From the corner
of his eyes, he saw Duo collect the guns Julia and Rob had put
carelessly aside and disabled them. He focused on the woman in front
of him and slapped her twice on both cheeks. "That will teach you not
to see what doesn't belong to you." Heero smirked, enjoying the anger in
the woman's eyes.
Duo whistled behind him. "That's my wife."
The Japanese boy just snorted and was about to think about what to do
next when the ship shook violently, making him lose balance. He tried
to steady himself but stepped on his long skirt instead, causing him
to fall flat on the ass.
Duo in the mean time had managed to steady himself, holding onto the
main computer. The braided boy quickly checked the situation and
shouted urgently. "The ship hit big crags under the sea, ripping a wide
gap on the bottom of the hull. We have approximately ten minutes to
save ourselves before the whole ship sinks."
Heero was cursing his damn dress when he heard Duo shouting. He
quickly scrambled to stand up, only to fall flat on his bottom once
again because his legs got tangled in his skirt while trying to
stand up hastily. Wasting no time, Duo decided to grab his cursing
spouse and ran toward the door.
"Hey! Don't leave me hanging here." Julia shouted. "Rob, stand up and
help me, you fool!"
"Choose your modesty or your life." Duo shouted back, passing through
the door and heading to the deck where the last safe boat was placed.
"My laptop!!" Heero shouted.
Duo made a face but he changed route nonetheless, racing to their room
to grab the laptop and then heading back to the deck.
Once they arrived there, Duo put Heero down and together they worked
to put the boat into the water. Duo jumped onto the boat first. Heero
threw his laptop to Duo and was about to follow the braided boy when
the ship shook once again, making him lose balance.
"Heero!!" Duo shouted worriedly as the ship sank faster. Heero cursed
and tried to get a grip on the rail but he slipped on his own dress.
He fell forward over the rail and off of the ship. Heero cursed as he
felt himself falling down straight onto the safety boat Duo occupied.
Luckily the braided boy moved fast. He let go of the laptop and caught
Heero's fall perfectly.
"Are you okay?" Duo sat down and put Heero on his lap, facing him.
Heero nodded and grunted. "This is the last time I wear this goddamn
Duo just laughed and hugged his Japanese spouse, kissing the boy
deeply. Heero kissed back in full force, chest pressed together and
hands encircling Duo's neck.
"Hmm, don't you want to rescue them?" Duo mumbled against Heero's
mouth, gesturing to where a half-naked woman and a bruised man
floated, waving and shouting for help.
"Let's leave them for a while." Heero rested his head on Duo's
"Ninmu ryokai." Duo grinned and tightened his embrace on the Japanese
boy while the laptop lay safely next to them.
An hour later
Lady Une read the mail she just received unblinkingly.
Mission accomplished. Going
on second honeymoon.
Duo and Heero Maxwell
