Two Sheets to the Wind : 5

"What about, like, putting together a snazzy little dance routine?  I'd have to be accompanied by my bros, though.  Whaddya say, Tro?  Wanna be my wingman on that?"

"Hell no.  You're not some lame high schooler trying to ask Heero out to the prom.  Why the hell are your ideas getting crazier and crazier?"

"This is Heero effing Yuy we're talking about here."  Duo waved a hand expansively.  "You don't just ask a guy like him out.  You gotta put effort into it.  You gotta shine."

Trowa did not bother being discreet with his eye roll.  "Just who are you outcompeting, Duo?  The mobs of other people vying to ask Yuy out?"

"Hey, I don't just take it for granted that I'm the only guy in line.  Gotta, yanno, show I appreciate him.  Show him I'm worth the yes."

"As if he's going to say no.  How you two haven't just jumped each other yet, I do not understand."

Duo paused.  "Well, no harm in hedging my bets, right?"

"You really think surprising him with a dance number is going to improve your cause?"

"Uh.  Well.  Candy hearts?"

"Could you get any more cheesy, Duo?" Trowa groaned.  "And can you even get candy hearts when it's not Valentine's?"

"Aw, fuck, why is this so freakin' hard?"  He tilted his head back and banged it against the cushions of the sofa.

"Great.  A little wine with your cheese.  I don't think Heero cares for either."

"Well, what does he like?" he mused aloud, starting back from square one.  "Simple?  Just a simple yes/no question?"


Duo nearly jumped out of his seat and away from Heero's voice.  "Fuck!  What the fuck are you doing here?"

Heero dug around the drawer of the side table and came up with a tape measure.  "Helping Quatre with his project."

"Why you?"

"Because Trowa said he'd be busy."  He looked pointedly at said man.

Trowa spread his hands in innocence.  "I've been very busy, Heero.  I've been very busy scoring you a date."

Duo slapped a hand to his face and hid.

"Well, in that case."  Heero handed the tape measure to Trowa.  "I think your job here is done."

Trowa took the tape measure and left the room with an ironic salute.

Heero settled onto the sofa next to Duo.  "So.  What were you thinking?  Dinner?"

Duo peeked over to him from between his spread fingers.  "Really?  Yes?"


He let his hand drop heavily into his lap.  "I just... I mean.  We had... you know.  That close encounter.  And I didn't want... I just wanted to be clear.  Yanno?  That, umm, I was interested in you, like, for real, and not just to finish what got started."

"Yeah.  I also... was interested.  For real."

"Oh.  Okay.  It was just... We kinda didn't mention it at all after, so I wasn't sure."

"Oh.  I thought we were talking about it, in a way."

"Huh.  So I wasn't imagining all those mysterious smiles?"

"Sorry.  I didn't realize I was being so enigmatic."

"Yeah, well, I've got a decent handle on you, but I'm nowhere near a hundred percent."

"Sorry.  I wasn't really certain how to proceed from there.  I figured it'd work itself out with time."

"Sure, just sit back and let me do all the hard work," Duo grumbled.

Heero leaned in to do the hard work of initiating a kiss.  And it was all kind of easy after that.

I actually teared up a little at the end. It was such a sweet story. I liked Trowa's part in this, although I suspect with his last response that he knew Heero had entered the room and he set Duo up. ;-)

Yeah, Trowa's annoying like that. =)

Sweet. I was smiling all the way through.

They really are pretty adorable. ^__^

I kinda want to give Trowa a smack upside the head for being so smug.

Well, Trowa didn't know anything about their close encounter, so he's not as well-informed as he thinks he is.

Good man, Trowa! Let's just get this moving along! LOL
(Though, weirdly, I'm very curious about what Quatre's project is, or if he's in on this too).
And Heero... "Your job here is done". LOL

I was thinking that Quatre was completely oblivious to this and when he finds out, he's gonna be pissy he totally missed out. ^o^

Lol! I could see Duo jump when Heero spoke. And the words are so perfect.

Lol at Trowa :)

Trowa appears to already be in a living situation with Quatre, so he can be smug now.  But I bet their get-together wasn't nearly as smooth as he'd like to claim it was.

Ahahaha! Love it. Trowa attempting to give dating advice is probably my favorite. He's just like, "Dear god let him talk his own self through it." And Duo is adorable here. Just. Adorable. ♥
