Two Sheets to the Wind : 6

"So, I haven't personally tried this dessert place, but I heard in the office that it's the best kept secret in town or something like that.  So that should mean there's not that many people, I hope.  Rafe said they were known for their tiramisu, so I thought maybe we should try that.  Oh, wait, umm, that's usually got some sort of alcohol in it, right?  You don't drink, but uh I dunno, do you consume it in food products?  Or well we could totally try something else..."

Heero stopped, bringing Duo to a stop with him, and looked Duo in the eye for a few long seconds while Duo fidgeted nervously.  "Tiramisu is fine."

"Are you sure?  Because..."

Heero's solemnity melted somewhat.  "Whatever you want is fine."  He reached out and shyly took Duo's hand.  "Long as you split it with me."

"Oh!" Duo exclaimed softly, glancing down at their hands.  He looked back up with some giddiness.  "Oh."

Heero smiled back.  "Oh," he said agreeably.  They continued down the path sedately, enjoying the evening air.

I'm giggling and actually have tears in my eyes. So sweet.

Subtle and sweet. I like that a lot. Duo worrying about picking the best dessert, and Heero knowing it's not the dessert that's important, it's who you're sharing it with.

Most people seem to fault Heero for not having strong opinions about these little sorts of things, but I think he just has a wider perspective on things than most.

Fried Duo's circuits there for a moment. *snicker* Oh.

Duo was doing a pretty good job of frying his own circuits there for a while...

You know... I think Duo frying his own circuits is part of the attraction. Got to kind of be a kick to know all that fumbling around is all because of him. ^^;

Up to a certain point.  After that point, Heero would probably be more like, hey how come you're not comfortable with this yet?

I imagine them getting there and it being all sold out of tiramisu for the night and all that fussing over nothing. =D (or, heero having the opportunity to prove his words true.)

I'm imagining this as a sequel to the last one. Nervous!Duo flailing around while Heero just stands there amused, until he decides to save him. So precious. Soooo true to character.

But it was all supposed to be easy after their kiss at the end of the last one! =D
