Two Flirting Doves : 9

So Heero was going to be his partner for this little training exercise, eh?  Duo joined him in front of the desk and produced a snappy salute.  "Agent Black reporting in, sir!"

Heero's head snapped in his direction, a strange, oddly trapped? look in his eye before turning back to Noin.  "Permission to change partners, sir?"

Now it was Duo's turn to snap his attention over to his partner-to-be and stare.

Noin shook her head placidly as she continued to gather their informational packets together.  "Denied.  Partners were chosen randomly, and everyone just has to deal with it.  Consider it a part of the exercise."

"Permission to change names, sir?" Heero ground out.

Duo's expression went from angry to puzzled in about half a second.

"Denied.  You said you didn't care, so we assigned you one of those, too."  She handed them their packets with a cheerful smile.  "Good luck, boys!"

Heero glowered all the way out the door.

"Gee, Yuy, gotta problem with me?" Duo drawled.

Heero closed his eyes briefly, exhaled audibly, and shook his head.  "I don't have a problem with you, Duo."

"Then what is the problem?"

"Nothing.  Let's get going."  He started toward the elevators.

Duo rolled his eyes, but figured he'd find out sooner or later.  "Allllright then.  Away we go.  Time to deliver an ass-whooping, courtesy of Team Black and..."  He flipped his packet open and scanned the info.  And then he scanned it again, chortled, coughed, snickered, and coughed again. "Courtesy of Team Black and Blue!"

Heero closed his eyes again and asked the powers that be for patience.

"I bet Porter chose your name for you.  I've heard her going on about your eyes before."

"Can we drop this?  Please?"

"Our codes are going to come up during this whole dog-and-pony show, yanno.  Ya might as well get used to it."

"I'd rather not."

"People are just gonna make fun of it, long as you obviously get annoyed by it."

"Maybe we can get it changed downstairs."

"Come on, Heero.  You gotta take what life throws at you and make the best of it.  You know how to do that, right?  We should just own this.  Like, look out everyone, 'cuz we're gonna beat you all... black and blue!"

Heero sighed.  "Keep going with that and I'm going to beat you black and blue."

"That's the spirit!  Hmmm.... Black and Blue's what we do to the bad guys!"

The elevator arrived at their floor and they got in.

"We should put together a victory pose or something.  I'm Black!  You're Blue!  And we are here to punch! you! up!"  He punctuated each of his last few words with a jab in the air.

Heero suppressed a groan and pointedly opened his packet to start reading up.

"Aw, come on.  Work with me here!  Life threw me at you, and that didn't turn out half bad, now did it?"

After a brief silence, Heero snorted.  "I suppose not.  By comparison, I suppose this should be a piece of cake."

"With black and blue frosting!"

"I'm not posing."

"Not even a victory sign?"  He flashed a V with his fingers as if he needed to demonstrate how easy and harmless it was.


"Sheesh.  Well, just leave it to me, buddy!  Just don't scowl so much -- unless you're scowling at the other teams -- but why would you, because we'll barely even notice them -- and leave the rest to me!"

Heheh, black and blue. No wonder Heero wanted to change partners. This bit shows just how different these two really are. At least when it comes to work. Poor Heero, he has to be soooo patient. Love it.

Re: Heheh

I think they're different outside of work, too.  They just happen to be different in mostly compatible ways. =)

I love Duo's reaction to the name, but I have to go with Heero on the not posing part. Good luck to Heero if he tries to keep Duo from doing that. Restraining Duo's enthusiasm might be the toughest part of the exercise.

Heero will need to pick and choose his battles on this one. ^_^

I had a Tiger and Bunny moment here! ^o^ Oh man... I SO feel for Heero, but I still laughed. :D

One totally understands his initial semi-panicked reaction.

I hope that's the last time Heero lets someone else pick his code name. ^___^ Silly boy.

They are so adorable... *snerk!*

Well, it's the last time he lets some besotted fangirl pick it, anyway. =D I have in my mind one day that he'll be codenamed Iceman, and Duo will be Maverick.  Trowa will be Jester, Quatre will be Goose, and Wufei will be Charlie.  Based only on name, not personality.  And hopefully no one will ever tell Wufei that Charlie was actually a girl. ^o^

Yay, someone understood it!  Because I looked it up and it's from the late '80s and I was thinking, guh some of you probably weren't even born then... x_x
