fic - slow and steady - bonus 1 [misc]
Title:  Slow and Steady
Part:  Bonus 1
Note:  Just an extra little something-something.  i.e. This could have been the ending scene, but I didn't think it would have ended the series on the right note.

Slow and Steady
Bonus 1

Wufei turned just enough to see who was approaching, then returned his attention to his task.  "Yevchenko.  Grady."  The two in question greeted him in return.  "What are you two doing here this morning?"

"I decided this guy needed more practice," Yevchenko responded, jerking his thumb in Grady's direction.

Grady sighed dramatically.  "Maybe, but did we have to do it at seven o'clock in the morning?"

"You're dragging our team effort down, Grady.  Suck it up."

"Are you filming a promotional video or something?" he asked Chang, obviously changing the subject.  Chang was following the progress of the guys out on the course with a small video camera.

"No."  Wufei didn't elaborate any further.  The recording would be sent off to Heero's doctor back on L1, and probably his physical therapists as well, to keep them apprised of his progress since leaving them.

"Who are they?" Yevchenko asked curiously.  Chang was a high-ranking agent.  He wouldn't be out here for a couple of low-level greenies.

"Agents Maxwell and Yuy."

"They're good.  Taking their time, though."

"Hey," Grady protested.  "I just 'take my time', too.  Why isn't that also good?"

"Because you suck," his senior partner retorted.  "They're taking their time, but they're not struggling with any of it.  You, on the other hand..."

"Like I'm ever going to have to run an obstacle course in real life."

"One year ago," Wufei informed him crisply.  "Agent Yuy was in a wheelchair and could not walk.  Today, he is running the obstacle course, and loving every moment of it.  Remember that the next time you feel like whining."

Yeah, normally if I have an 'extra' scene floating around in my head, I just don't write it up and put it out there, but I figured, heck, it's Christmas.  No time to be stingy.

Trust Wufei to have the perfect way to put things into perspective. :-) I'm so happy about the bonus stories. Thanks for continuing on with this. It's great getting presents after Christmas, too.

Wufei will probably buy them breakfast, to thank them for giving him a new way to smack the noobs around. ^o^

There's Christmas, which is like the big event with your family, and then there's all the little informal get-togethers you gotta have with your friends, right? ^_^

Go Chang!

And Grady can just slink off in embarrassment...

I see him embarrassed for a day or two, maybe... He doesn't seem the type to be motivated by this kind of thing, though. ^^

Rolls off his back like water off a duck? He better be careful Duo doesn't hear him. ^___^

I looked for this story each day, eager to find out more about Heero's progress, and Duo's growing realizations about his own life. It was very satisfying to find them, in this bonus part, working the obstacle course as a team and on their own terms.

Yeah, Heero's still got a long way to go to get back up to his previous standards of performance, but his journey (and duo's) gonna end up meaning more than the destination. ^_^
