"That's it. Let's get going!" Duo said as he threw his bag into the back of the jeep. He secured himself in the seat as Heero started up the vehicle and took off. "So Heero, where is this house of ours?"
"Did you read Quatre's note?"
Duo clutched the end of his braid. Sadness ran through his heart; even now after five years, it was hard to talk about. "I read the part about good-bye and I love you. You are my brother. Can't live without Trowa, going to be with him. We'll be waiting for you. Take care of Heero because he loves you. Yeah, I read all that. But the stuff about the money that he left to me seemed morbid, so I never really took a good look at it. You know I don't care about that kind of thing. I just knew it would be there if I needed it for something."
"He left us a house."
"Really? Cool!" Duo looked upwards, "Thanks Quatre!" Then he looked over at Heero, "So that's where we're going?"
"As soon as we lose these shadows."
Duo noticed them too. He knew about the one watching his place, he figured it was some of Hilde's lawyers trying to get some dirt on him. They would find nothing, he made sure of it. He was squeaky clean; aspirin was the strongest substance that he had in his place. They wouldn't find anything even close to sexual in there either; it was against totally his nature, but he would do anything for his kids. "I know about that one." He pointed to a suspicious looking car as they left the parking lot. "But who is that other guy?"
Heero shrugged, "He's watching me."
"Waiting to see if I jump your ass so he can get some pictures or something like that?" Duo grinned.
"So is that the only reason you didn't come up to my room and fuck me until my brains come oozing out my ears?"
"Yes!" Heero growled out. The mental picture of Duo's naked body writhing underneath him was making it very hard to concentrate on driving.
Duo sat back, "So, what's your plan? I know you've got one because can't keep your hands off of me forever. And I'm not exactly known for self-control when it comes to you." Duo reached over and slid his hand deftly up Heero's thigh.
"We'll lose them at the military base." Heero reached down and took Duo's wandering hand to pull it up to the bulge in his jeans. "We'll take a shuttle to Earth. Alone." This would give them several hours to get reacquainted with each other in a very intimate way. In space, no one can hear you scream.
Duo purred, his hand working miracles in Heero's lap. "Smart thinking, but how are you going to smuggle me in?"
"I won't have to, Colonel Maxwell."
Duo slowly turned to face his best friend and lover. "You didn't. Please tell me that you didn't reinstate me!"
Heero shook, "Duo, please stop, I..."
"What is it?" he asked with a look of concern. Duo watched in utter fascination as his slight hand motions brought Heero to climax. He pulled his hand away and held it up in front of his face as if he were looking at it for the first time. "Oh my God, Heero! I hardly touched you."
"It's been a long time."
Duo's answer was cold silence.
