Ficlet inspired by Asia's artwork - trasgapoca
Ficlet inspired by Asia's artwork
I happened to come across a picture done by Asia the other day and was attacked by a bunny.

You can find the picture here: http://asia-2.livejournal.com/87814.html

And here's our little ficlet:

The news had come from Wufei and left Duo scrambling for balance as he walked back to their office at HQ. He had to be joking Duo decided; there was simply no way Heero would transfer off Earth without talking it over with Duo first. They were partners! He had to be joking. Had to.

But their office was empty and all of Duo's rationalizing fell to panic at the thought of coming to work every day and not seeing Heero.

Looking around wildly Duo spotted Heero down the hall with a collection of folders under his arm and he took off after him, intent on catching him. And keeping him.


Heero was distracted. By all of the things he needed to do before he left, by all of the things he needed to do when he arrived on L-2... but most of all he was distracted by the reason he was leaving.

So it surprised him when Duo grabbed the back of his jacket, and he half turned with wide eyes, only to narrow them again immediately, "Duo? What are you doing?"


"Don't leave me!"

The look on Duo's face was downright pleading and for a long moment Heero just stared, he didn't have any idea how to react to something so out of character. Duo didn't show weakness where other people might see it, he was even more careful about it than Heero himself. Then Duo's words caught up with him and Heero glanced down at the files he was holding, using the second to remind himself that he had to go. "Duo, I have to. I'm sorry."


"Then I'll go with you," Duo suggested stubbornly, voice breaking as he choked back desperate words.


Alarmed, both at Duo's behavior and the idea of Duo going with him, Heero shook his head, "You can't. They need you here. Are you alright?"


"How can I be alright? You're *leaving* me!" Duo's grip tightened in Heero's jacket and he ducked his head to hide the gathering of desperate tears in his eyes.


"They'll give you another partner... maybe Wufei if Sally takes over the medical unit like she's been talking about." Duo's words were confusing him, and more than that, hurting him. Heero hated seeing Duo upset, and it was making it a thousand times harder for him to remember why he was leaving.


"But I don't love Wufei!" Duo snapped loudly; his eyes going wide when he realized what he'd said.


Heero's jaw dropped and he didn't realize he'd been holding his breath until he had to gasp in another so he could ask, feeling very small and confused, "But, you love me?"


His entire face redder than a tomato, all Duo could do was nod nervously.


Clarity came across Heero's face, along with a wide smile, "Then I'm not leaving."


Relief flooded Duo's body, making his knees go weak and he slumped to the floor right there in the middle of the hallway. "Thank God."


Worried all over again Heero hurriedly crouched and dropped the files to grab Duo's shoulders, "Duo are you alright?"


"I think so," Duo answered tentatively.


"Here, let's get you back to the office." Heero stood and helped Duo stand up.


Duo allowed himself to be led back to their office where he collapsed into his desk chair and sat with slumped shoulders and bowed head.


Dropping the files he'd retrieved onto his desk Heero walked over to perch on Duo's desk, studying him for a long moment. When he spoke it was suddenly, and as much a surprise to him as to Duo, "Why..."

Pausing, Heero thought about the words that he had been about to blurt out, and decided to ask them anyway, "Why didn't you say anything before?"


"...leave me," Duo's answering mutters were soft enough that Heero only caught part of it, "...do it anyway, might as well..."


Sighing with fond exasperation Heero reached over to put a finger under Duo's chin, tilting his head back so their eyes could meet, "What was that?"


"I didn't want you to leave me but if you were leaving anyway..." Duo shrugged, eyes fearful as he met Heero's gaze.


That fear stung and Heero shook his head, "Duo, I.. I was leaving because I..." It was hard to say, after being silent so long, and for a moment he looked at Duo helplessly before he made himself finish, "I love you and being with you when I couldn't -be- with you was too much. I couldn't do it anymore."


"Heero..." Duo choked out.


He didn't give Duo a chance to say more, though Duo didn't look like he -could-, "But now..." The prospect of what could happen now made him pause and Heero asked hesitantly, "Do you want to be with me?"

After all, he knew full well that loving someone didn't always mean that you were willing to put up with all of the difficulties and pain that came with a relationship.


"More than anything," Duo informed him, relief and hope growing in his eyes.


Smiling, Heero leaned forward, bracing his hands on the arms of Duo's chair, and kissed him tenderly, "I guess I'd better call the Director and cancel my transfer request."


Duo's grin lit his entire face as he leaned in to kiss Heero again, "Good idea."

Such a good picture and the perfect ficlet to go with it. Yay for fluff! *happy sigh* I needed this. Much thanks!

Aren't they? I wish my 2D work came out that well. *sigh* Glad you liked it... we've been writing cute stuff lately. Which is really odd but kinda relaxing. Currently working on a fic for Link's contest. Even if no one else ends up liking it, we've been highly entertained writing it.

Oh and thanks for the Sentinel links - I'm sure they'll come in handy. ... Just as soon as I drag myself away from watching NCIS long enough to read. Why... *WHY* do these obsessions sinks their hooks in me?

*shifty look and whispers* Any recs for Wolvie/Gambit goodness? Don't tell Anida or she'll hurt us both for feeding yet another obsession of mine.
