Two Flirting Doves : 2

Duo dug around in Heero's kitchen cabinet for a cup and came back with something way in the back.  "You still have this?"

Heero glanced over briefly, then returned his attention to his sandwich-making.  "Of course."

"It's glued together."  Indeed, it looked like it had broken into two large pieces and two small pieces at some point.

"It had an accident."

"Why are you keeping it around?"  Perhaps it was still capable of holding its liquid, and in fact, Duo was fairly certain Heero must have tested it before declaring the job done, but the epoxy probably wasn't food-grade.

"I keep it around because it was a gift from you, not because I can drink out of it."

"Oh."  Duo studied the mug for a minute.  "Why do you keep it in the cabinet?"

"It's a cup.  Where else would I keep it?"

"It's not a cup if you can't drink out of it."

"Then it's a...?"

Duo held the mug up and eyed it dramatically from different angles.  "It's a... token of my affection.  Or possibly a modernist sculpture in the shape of a mug."

Heero started putting his sandwich substrates away.  "I see.  And the appropriate location for this item is...?"

"Well, obviously, a place of great honor."

"Uh-huh."  Heero looked pointedly around his apartment.  He preferred not to have much in the way of clutter, and therefore did not have any furniture whose sole purpose was to display clutter.  "And that would be where, exactly?"

Duo flashed him a grin.  "I'll think of something."

Heero thought nothing more of the matter until he went into his bedroom at the end of the day and found the mug leaning comfortably against his pillows on his side of the bed, blankets tucked lovingly around it.  He chuckled to himself and removed it to the bedside table.

Sweet and sappy. Just the sort of thing I absolutely adore. Leave it to Duo to find the perfect place. And leave it to Heero to keep it in the first place.

Well, I wish Duo could have found a perfect place for it more quickly, because I was sitting there scratching my head over it for a while. ^^' I would have been happy leaving it right after Heero's initial declaration, but Duo felt it needed a response... and then he left me hanging. -_-

Duo is a sappy guy, isn't he? ^___^ It's sweet that Heero kept it and even neater that Duo found it a perfect place.

Hm.  I thought Duo was being cheeky.  With maybe only an undertone of sap.  But I'll take it. =)

Duo is not the sweet one here... Heero is. I can just imagine him carefully putting the mug back together instead of being practical about it. ^_______^

It seemed quite practical to me to put the mug back together again.  After all, its breaking didn't make it any less a gift from Duo.  Put a little epoxy on it and it's still a perfect gift from Duo. =)

I use my glued-together, but-i-still-like-it mug as a pencil holder.
i like Duo's idea of a place of honor!

I thought of that.  That would have been Heero's plan, practical and ever-present, but Duo didn't think it was honorific enough. =)

That's some serious flirting on Duo's part. I hope Heero realizes it. ;-)

Not right away, I suppose, but I'm sure he'll get the message soon enough. =)

HAH! Duo knows all the perfect places!

Well, Duo's probably been thinking about Heero's bed for a long time. ^o^

Charming! I love the way Duo thinks.

Luckily, Heero does, too, otherwise he'd probably just be really confused most of the time.

One does wonder what a mug that Duo gave to Heero would say on it.
