// heero's thoughts //
a change in the weather
It was 3:30 by the time we finished eating and given that the two of us were visibly exhausted, Duo's question did not surprise me in the least. "You wanna stay tonight and I'll take you back in the morning?"
The trip back and forth to Princeton was all of a three-hour ordeal for him. I opened my mouth to tell him that that was acceptable, but didn't get a chance to speak. "I'll sleep on the couch." He added.
I smiled. "Sure."
We walked the one block to his building in silence and climbed the eight short flights of stairs to his fourth floor apartment. He fumbled for his keys and unlocked the door, ushering me in once he had reached inside and turned on the light. It had been a while since I'd been here, but everything was much as it was the last time.
"You can borrow something of mine to sleep in." He told me as we simultaneously entered the bedroom.
I could not deny that being in this situation made me feel very peculiar. I was watching Duo get himself clothes to sleep in and taking the extra pillow from his bed. I kept my gaze on him as he pulled the uppermost blanket off of his bed. "You should be warm enough with just that one." He said. There was a bulky white blanket still on the bed and it looked to be down. "I'm sure it's fine." I concurred. His apartment was not at all cold and I was suddenly feeling a little flushed.
He made his way toward the room's exit and then turned to face me. "Night, Heero." he said softly.
I was just standing there next to his bed, feeling stupid as I stared at him, wrestling with the surge of desire I was feeling and finally giving in to it; saying what I knew I probably shouldn't, but really wanted to "Not interested in a goodnight kiss?"
He dropped the bundle he was holding onto the floor at his feet and crossed the room to stand in front of me. He was not smiling, though and I found it unnerved me. "I wasn't sure you wanted me to." He told me. I leaned forward and moved up onto the balls of my feet, crushing my lips to his in answer. He predictably took control of our kiss, holding my head still with both of his hands and tilting it so that he could thoroughly plunder my mouth. I stood for as long as I cared to before falling back on the bed and bringing Duo down on top of me. He moaned softly as our lower bodies came in contact with each other. We were both unmistakably aroused and I could not help but think back to our first encounter and noting how similar to this it was, except for the fact that we were now horizontal.
We maneuvered ourselves so that we were both lying on the bed and then he pulled back. He was breathing quite heavily as he looked up at me. "If you want me to stop, Heero... " he began. "... you'd better tell me now."
"Don't you dare stop." I groaned back, moaning as he lifted his head to cover my mouth with his.
He flipped us over so that I was lying on top of him and took firm hold of my ass. His hips were already in motion, pushing up off the mattress and shifting back and forth to rub against the bulge in my jeans. He kissed me again, daring me to take control this time, and I did, driving my tongue into his mouth as deeply as I could. I forced my hips downward each time he thrust up, and was thinking that it was still not enough.
Duo pulled back and rolled us over onto our sides, reaching between our bodies to unfasten and lower the zipper on his pants, and slid them further down his thighs. I tried to keep my gaze from the sight of his hardened cock but found I could not. His hand was on mine then, taking it and guiding it to the waistband of my jeans. "I want to feel your cock against mine."
I immediately decided that I wanted that too, unfastening my pants as quickly as I could. I looked up at him when I was done. "Lower them a little more." He told me. "Zippers tend to take the fun out of this." I smiled back and pushed the thick denim further down my hips, before pushing my pelvis forward into his. I gasped when our bodies made contact again, loving the feel of his warm, hard naked flesh against my own.
"Kiss me," he commanded and I did, pulling his head closer to mine to let our tongues twist around each other in the small gap that still separated our mouths. I wanted, no... I needed more friction and I thrust my hips forward with more desperation to get some. Duo eased back a little and reached between us, wrapping the fingers of his left hand around what he could of the very base of our cocks. "Go ahead, baby." He whispered.
I was pushing against him now while he remained still, silently wondering if there was a god of friction and vowing to set up a suitable shrine, if there was. I was so close to finding my release and Duo's heavy breaths alerted me to the fact that he was too. I brought my right hand up to my mouth and spit into the palm of it before dropping it down to grasp at the already slippery heads of our cocks. Duo moaned and I began working my hand over the tips, spreading the moisture over them and teasing the most sensitive parts. "Christ, Heero." He moaned. "I'm losing it."
I did not get the opportunity to tell him I was about to join him, before I did. My entire body shuddered as the warmth of my release covered my hand. I used my come to enhance the movements of my hand and groaned as I felt Duo's cock beginning to twitch in my firm grasp. He came; in thick, wet spurts, soaking the sleeve of my shirt and my hand. He cried out to me while I remained silent, concentrating on how long it had been since I had heard him utter my name in passion.
The following morning, I was woken by the sound of Duo frantically calling my name, shaking both of my shoulders as he did. I sat up immediately in his bed, startled and still trembling from the unexpected jolt and looked up at him. "What?"
"My sister just called." He told me as he moved from the bed and ran around the room picking out clothes. "I totally forgot about my parent's anniversary party today!"
I looked over at the clock. It was 9 a.m. "What time is the party?" I inquired.
"Twelve. Shit. If we hurry, I can take you back home and only be an hour late."
I gave some thought to the idea and decided that Duo driving like a maniac all morning did not sit well with me. "I can take the train back."
He shook his head. "No. I can make it. Everyone is used to me being late anyway. Unless... " He looked toward me. "... you wanna stay here? I'll be back at around ten or eleven."
I gave his idea only a moment of thought before shaking my head no. "The train is fine, Duo, really." I told him.
He continued to gather the rest of his clothes and sat down on the edge of the bed next to me when he was done. "I thought we could have a nice breakfast this morning and yanno... talk some more."
I admitted that I liked his idea and smiled toward him. "Shit happens." I said in explanation. He grinned and kissed me before getting up and heading into the bathroom for his morning shower.
It did not take me long to dress and decide that coffee was in order for both of us. I made a pot and searched through his cabinets for something quick we could eat and pulled out a couple of boxes of cereal. Duo joined me 20 minutes later, wearing nothing but a pair of black dress pants. His hair was dry and loose and most of it fell neatly behind his shoulders. He looked... gorgeous. "I made coffee." I told him. "Have time for a quick cup?"
There was less of a time constraint now and he seemed a bit more relaxed as he poured himself a cup of coffee and sat directly across the table from me. "I'm glad we bumped into each other last night." He told me.
"Me too." I smiled back, taking a sip of my coffee after I was done speaking.
"How did you end up there? I mean, not that I'm not glad, just curious."
"Once of Vincent's friends." I told him, adding to that the rest of the information I had. "He used to live in the city."
"Cool. So, umm... what happened with you and Vincent?" He asked, and then quickly amended. "Never mind."
I probably would have answered him if I thought that he was ready to hear it.
"So, like I said last night, Heero. You were right about some things." He said.
"Which ones?" I asked seriously. I was pleased that he was the one leading the conversation. We didn't have much time to talk right now, but I was anxious to work through things and was willing to handle the resolution in tiny bits, if that was what it took.
He laughed a little and sat back in his chair; something he had developed a bad habit of doing lately. I was disappointed that he was not going to say more. I wanted to know. "The control?" I asked somewhat hopefully. It was the main issue as far as I was concerned and had an impact on everything else.
He smiled toward me. "I suppose I could be a more flexible with that."
"How flexible?" I inquired.
I waited for him to reply, focusing on his face as he struggled to formulate his response. Whether or not we could resume our relationship, was dependant solely on his answer to that question. I think he realized that too. I wanted to remind him yet again, that it was not just sex we were talking about here; that the scales need to be a bit more balanced in quite a few areas of our relationship, but I did not. Time seemed to slow to a near crawl and the longer it took for him to answer me, the more anxious I could feel myself becoming.
"Just enough so that you don't leave." He finally said in an uncharacteristically soft-spoken voice.
My first reaction to his response was that it was not exactly what I was hoping to hear. I had to admit that it was honest though... brutally so and startlingly Duo. The more I thought about his words, the more pleased I was by them. I decided that this was a fairly substantial breakthrough and let Duo know I found it acceptable. "I can live with that for now." I told him.
He shook his head in amusement and chuckled at my reply. It took every bit of self-control I had not to kiss the gorgeously smug and very relief tainted smile off his face.
note: i know that this part was pretty short, but i ended it where i had to. part 10 will be much longer.
