Disclaimers: Nope, don't own it.
Warnings: Fluff, sap... not much else
Notes: Ficlet request for LJ user mmariep2. Her request was,
"Heero and Duo and a photo booth." This is the first time I was
going for angst, and it turned fluffy instead. Usually, it happens
the other way around. -_-;;
"Come on, Heero! It'll be fun!"
Heero eyed the machine in front of them, frowning dubiously. "I
wouldn't call climbing into a small booth to have our picture
made 'fun,' Duo," he said. "We can't leave photographic evidence
of our identities behind..."
"Oh cut the crap, Heero," Duo said, pulling his friend and lover
toward the photo booth. "OZ already knows what we look like.
We've had the pleasure of their hospitality before. You just don't
like having your picture made."
Heero resisted Duo's pull. "I don't... my hair always looks funny in
Duo rolled his eyes and kept pulling. "Suck it up, Yuy. I want a
picture of you." When Heero refused to budge, Duo let go and
switched tactics. Smiling at his lover, he raised his hand and let
his finger trail discretely down Heero's chest. "If you do this with
me, I'll make it up to you later."
Heero raised an eyebrow, his interest piqued. "How?"
Duo grinned. "I'll do that thing that you like..."
"Promise?" There was no hesitation. He really did like that thing
Duo did so well. Surely there wouldn't be any harm in one
Duo clapped his hands and nodded eagerly. He grabbed
Heero's hands and pulled him to the photo booth. Heero warily
parted the curtain and sat gingerly on the seat while Duo
fumbled outside for change to put into the machine. A moment
later, the screen opposite him sprung to life and Duo scrambled
happily onto the little bench next to him.
"Now what?" Heero asked, frowning at his image in the monitor.
"Smile, Yuy!" Duo said cheerfully as he slid his arm under
Heero's and grinned at the screen.
"Smile? I don't..." A bright flash momentarily stunned him. He
blinked furiously to clear his vision.
"Aw! That's one wasted! Come on, Heero! Just look at the
camera and smile for me!" Duo protested, sticking his tongue
out at his lover... right as the camera flashed again. "Damn it!"
Heero chuckled as Duo glared again at the monitor, only to be
blinded for a third time when the flash went off again.
"Holy crap! This thing is fast," Duo said, pulling Heero close.
"We've only got one last chance..."
Heero turned his face to the camera and tried his best to form
some sort of semblance of a smile for the last photo. The flash
went off. Heero swore.
"What's the matter?" Duo asked, looking at him curiously.
"Oh." Duo shrugged his shoulders and settled against Heero's
shoulder. "It was a stupid idea anyway. I just thought it might be
Heero reached up to cup Duo's cheek in the palm of his hand.
"You wanted to do this. It was not a stupid idea." He leaned in
and placed a long, lingering kiss against Duo's lips, causing the
other boy to suck in a sharp breath. "If you have another dollar,
we can try it again..."
Duo looked at him, blue-violet eyes sparkling with mischief. "I
have a better idea," he said, moving over Heero to straddle his
thighs. "That thing you like... I could do it here."
Heero blanched at him, but felt his body tighten in response.
"Here? Now? We could get caught..."
Duo began to nibble down the side of his neck. "All the more
exciting, wouldn't you say?" A hand slipped down the front of
Heero's shorts. "Besides, the boardwalk's practically dead this
time of day. No one's gonna notice."
Heero tried to object. He could think of a dozen reasons why
doing that thing he liked in a place like this was not a good idea.
But then Duo moved and his body responded and he decided to
throw caution to the wind.
It was only afterwards did he wish he'd had the foresight to put
another dollar into the photo booth. Having a photo of Duo doing
that thing he liked oh so much would have definitely been worth
