My Fair Lady + Part 2 (cont)

He really should have killed the captain once he saw him! Heero cursed silently and looked at the other three occupants in the room. How in the hell could that stupid captain believe Julia's lies and think Duo and him were the terrorists?!

Heero tugged at the cuff on his left hand and heard a snicker from the red head woman sitting across from him, as she was also cuffed on her left hand. "Shut up! I'll kill you once this is over." Yes, Julia was really a bitch. With her desperate expression like the one she used when she entered their room in the first ship, she managed to convince the captain that she and Rob were the hostages and he and Duo actually were the bandits.

Heero growled as he remembered reading Julia's story in the captain's cabin. Julia had written down her own version of the hostage situation. In her story, Duo and him forced her and his husband to act like the terrorists while they pretended to be the hostages. She also pointed out that he and Duo managed to escape unscratched and got onto the lifeboat when the ship sunk down while she and Rob strived to float in the ocean. Not to mention Rob's bruised face and her half naked condition at that moment. That bitch even dared to accuse Duo as her molester!

He also found out they were at the disadvantage when Julia pointed out that Heero even had his laptop with him. How could the hostages escape before the terrorists and even manage to bring a laptop with them without being shot down by the terrorists? Normal hostages of course couldn't do that, but he and Duo weren't normal hostages. And that was another disadvantage for them. Julia even pointed out that was really unusual for honeymoon couples to bring a laptop during their honeymoon.

Heero cursed as he realized his laptop was the cause of the captain's suspicion. He never thought his laptop would make a big problem like this! Of course, they could remedy that situation by telling what they did with the laptop, but that meant revealing their true identities. Unfortunately, they couldn't do that since they practically were still on an enemy's ship and in fear of interrupting Wufei and Sally's mission. Making eyes contact with his husband, Heero could see Duo also had determined not to reveal their identities.

Beautiful face, added with sweet tongue made Julia quickly gain sympathy from the captain. Duo and him of course rebutted all Julia's accusations and told the captain the true story. However, that made the stupid captain confused and couldn't decide which story was the true one. To Heero's irritation and anger, the captain decided to lock the four of them inside an empty room, until he found some proof that could reveal which pair were the real bandits.

"Heero, calm down." Duo spoke up from where he sat next to Julia. Heero looked at his husband's pleading eyes and willed his anger to disappear. The only reason Duo sat there was because his right hand was cuffed onto Julia's left hand. Again, it was Julia, who suggested about this when the captain decided to cuff all of them for caution. The woman told the captain that to prove she was innocent, she didn't mind to be cuffed with Duo, her molester. The stupid captain seemed to look at the red head woman in awe and agreed to the suggestion, which also meant Heero got cuffed with Rob, the real molester among the four of them.

A groan was heard from his left side and Heero turned his head to see Rob's eyes flutter open. After the captain left them in the room alone, Rob began molesting him again. He had knocked down the man in a matter of seconds by punching him in the gut once he felt the man's hands on his body. He glared at the man who blinked awake. "Try touching me again and I'll make sure you never have children."

At the threat, Rob blinked and quickly sat up from where he lay on the floor, trying to move as far away as the cuff on his hand allowed. "Julia! You shouldn't have suggested this cuffing idea to the captain! I'm cuffed onto an amazon woman!" That earned him a punch right on his nose by the still angry Heero that sent him unconscious again. How dare he call him an amazon woman!

"Oh Rob, you're hopeless." Julia rolled her eyes.

"What plan do you have in your mind?" Heero growled again. "You can't escape as long as Duo is cuffed onto you."

"Well, that's simple. I just have to drag him with me then." Julia smiled and ran her free hand over Duo's thigh. But to her surprise, her hand was caught and cuffed with the same cuff as her left hand had. "Since... when..." She stared in disbelief at Duo who was now free and waved a hairpin before her.

Duo stood and smirked. "I have had enough of you. First, you prevent us from having our honeymoon. Second, you make us like the bad ones. I don't care what the captain said about this, but I don't want that molester to go near my wife again." He walked to Heero, who smiled in amusement at his husband. Within second, his hand was freed and together worked on the struggling Julia and unconscious Rob.

Now Julia was cuffed to Rob while Heero looked at the unused cuffs in his husband's hand warily. "Do we really have to cuff ourselves??"

"Well, it's to proof that we are innocent, that we are not trying to run away, just wanting to exchange me and that molester." Duo gave an encouraging smile and cuffed both of them.

"No one will believe you, you know." Julia said from where she was seated with the unconscious Rob.

"We'll see about that later." Duo dismissed the red head woman and pulled his spouse to sit down with him on the wooden floor. "It's not likely everyone believes you. If the captain truly believed you, he wouldn't have put the two of you here."

"Damn." Julia slumped down on the floor. "I never should have choosen both of you as the hostages."

"What are we going to do now?" Ignoring the woman, Heero leaned against the wall, next to his husband, and rested his head on Duo's shoulder, entwining their cuffed hands.

"We wait." Duo rested his head on Heero's head and squeezed his spouse's hand gently.

Heero sighed in exasperation. This sucked. Come to think it, both of them hadn't had a shower and hadn't eaten since yesterday while it was long past afternoon now. Thankfully, they had changed into the fresh clothes Sally and Wufei had given before meeting the captain, but still it was really suck. He swore if he had a chance to choose a place for his honeymoon, cruising would have been at the bottom of his list.

However, the peaceful moment didn't last long as Rob woke up. "Ouch,my nose."

Serves him right. Heero snorted and watched as Rob slowly sat up and Julia explained the situation. Suddenly the door to their room being opened and the captain came in. "Mr and Mrs. Maxwell, I'm sorry for inconvenience. Now that we know you are innocence, please accept my apologize for ever doubting you."

Duo and Heero looked at each other. The braided boy smiled and stood up, followed by his spouse. "How did you know?"

"We set a microphone in this room and from your conversations, especially Mrs Julia's ones, we know we have made a mistake." The captain bowed down. "Please accept our free offer in using all the facilities in this ship as my apology for ruining your plan for today."

Heero was happy now that they were proven innocent. Unfortunately both he and Duo missed the looks exchanged by the other couple and didn't have chance to react when suddenly Julia and Rob jumped the captain and encircled the captain's neck with the chain between their cuffed hands. They used their free hands to pin the captain's hand behind him.

"Don't move!" Rob shouted to the captain's men outside the room while Julia glared warningly to him and Duo.

"Done! We'll reach our hideout in two hours." Julia exclaimed happily.

"You're stupid to believe your plan will work for the second time." Heero growled from the chair he was seated in, hands cuffed behind the back of the chair. The sun had just set down a few minutes ago.

Julia and Rob had taken the captain as their hostage and carried out their original plan. They had ordered all the passengers and ship's crews to get into the lifeboats and leave the ship. Heero just felt pity for the couples, who had have the life boat experience for the second time. Too bad Julia and Rob felt the need to get a revenge on them and decided to keep them in the ship. They had asked the ship's crews to cuff Duo spread eagle between two poles that supported this room before leaving the ship while he, himself, were cuffed into this current position, facing his husband. The captain was already knocked out by Rob and was locked on the room where they had been imprisoned earlier.

"I learn from my mistakes, girl." Julia sneered. "I have turned on the autopilot to our hideout. With his current position, your husband won't be able to release himself this time. And it's really fortunatethat this ship is also one of the ships that carried hidden weapons. It seems we won't come back empty handed after all."

"And this time, I make sure I'll have you, pretty girl." Rob grinned predatorily and ran his hand on Heero's thigh.

"Don't. Touch. My. Wife." Duo spat ferociously.

The anger in the braided boy's violet eyes managed to make Rob take a step back before regaining his composure. The man smirked and walked behind Heero. "I'm afraid all you can do is watching I take your beautiful wife here." He bent down and licked Heero's neck, not knowing how dangerous his life was if Heero ever lost control.

Heero turned his head, trying to evade the contact with the man's impudent tongue, but Rob made no attempt to stop and even held his head to stop its movement, tilting it to face the ceiling. When Rob's smirking face came into Heero's line of vision, the Japanese boy growled dangerously when he realized the man was about to kiss him. "Do it and you'll regret it."

Julia turned to Duo after Rob bent down to lick the girl. She smiled teasingly, already ignoring what her husband would do to the girl, and put a finger on Duo's cheek. The young man was furious at the scene before him and Julia found it was arousing to see those violet eyes blazed with fire. "Since your wife will make my husband busy, I think we should get along together too." Those eyes turned to her and Julia found herself feeling uncomfortable when the braided boy grinned. It was not a normal grin. She could tell it was a grin that was reserved for the boy's enemies. "Wh...why do you grin like that?" She spat out, trying to cover her uneasiness.

"You, lady, still didn't learn from your mistake." The braided boy sneered. "Never ever underestimate your enemies."

From behind her, Julia could hear something hit the wooden floor. She turned around and gasped when she saw Heero standing on the floor and pressing one foot on her unconscious Rob. The man was lying on the floor with nose bleeding, obviously being hit once again. "How.... How come...."

"My spouse is much stronger than I am." Duo grinned wider as the woman looked at him in disbelief.

Heero had had enough of talking. He walked toward Julia and put the woman out cold with one blow to her stomach. After kicking the woman aside with his foot, Heero looked at his husband to find the deadly grin had been replaced with a smile. "He didn't manage to kiss you, did he?"

Heero snorted. "You saw my fist kissing his face with your own eyes."

"True, now how about giving your lips to the rightful owner?" The braided boy offered nicely.

The Japanese boy grinned and just did that. He pasted his lips on Duo's and soon felt a tongue wanting to enter his mouth. Crossing his hand behind Duo's head and hugging the braided boy's neck with his arms, Heero opened his mouth and let his own tongue welcomed the invader. It lasted one full minute before they withdrew and gasped for air.

"Very nice kiss, koi. Can you release me now?" Duo tugged on the cuffs on his wrists and ankles.

"No, I like you where you are now." Arms still around Duo's neck, Heero kissed the tip of Duo's nose, which only a few inches from him.

"Come on, love. I haven't given my share to that man." Duo gestured with his chin to the unconscious Rob.

"You still want to beat him?" Heero arched one eyebrow.

"He touched my wife when I told him not to do so." Duo growled. His face was back to business again. Death's business. "No one touches impolitely what is exclusively mine and is left unscratched."

Heero smiled and rested his head on Duo's shoulder, lowering his arms to hug Duo around the waist and kiss his neck gently. "I never thought there would be someone who loved me that much."

Duo's face softened and he smiled a bit. "I love you that much, koi."

"Me too. I felt like strangling that woman when she pasted herself on you." Heero nuzzled into Duo's hair. "Thank you for loving me. The song is right. I really think this is a gift from above to have you here with me." [1]

Duo sighed and brushed his cheek on Heero's hair. "Let me finish with him, love and you can have me like this again later in our own room."

"Really?" Heero pulled away and grinned.

"Well, not in our first time, but yeah." Duo quickly corrected himself.

Heero snorted but withdrew nonetheless. He pulled out his gun from beneath his dress and shot the four cuffed restraining his husband.

"You kept that gun beneath your dress all along?" Duo asked in wonder."Why didn't you use it earlier?"

"Didn't have a chance to without revealing our identities." Heero slipped his gun back beneath his dress.

Duo nodded and walked toward the slumped man. With a little effort, he grabbed the man's collar and lifted him up, shaking him awake.

Rob's eyes fluttered open and widened to his limit when he saw the grinning boy before him. "I'll teach you what happens when you touch what belongs to Shinigami."

Heero decided not to watch while Duo made the man his personal punching bag and went to tie Julia and then walked to control panel to stop the ship, letting it float on the middle of ocean. When he finished, he turned around and saw Duo was cleaning his fist with Rob's clothing while the man was lying face down on the floor.

Suddenly the door was kicked open and two figures entered, pointing their guns. "Don't move."

Heero quickly turned to the intruders and was about to pull out his own gun when he recognized them. "Wufei, Sally!"

"Yu...uh Heero!" Wufei lowered the gun when he saw the situation was under their control.

Sally meanwhile approached Duo. After checking Duo's bruised fist, she turned to the slumped man. "How is he?"

"He'll live. Though he won't be able to get up from the bed for a month or so." Duo gave final kick to the man and approached Heero. "How did you get back onto this ship again?"

"Get back?" Wufei frowned. "What do you mean?" Sally was as confused as her husband was.

Heero and Duo looked at each other. They then started explaining what had happened, starting from the time they left the couple until now. From Sally and Wufei's expression, it was obvious they both didn't know about the events.

"How can you not know about what happened around you?" Duo asked curiously.

Wufei fidgeted. "Uhm, we got distracted...."

"Distracted?" Heero raised one eyebrow and saw the Chinese boy blushing. A light bulb snapped on in his mind. "Having sex, you mean?" The Chinese boy only blushed redder as the answer.

"Julia and Rob had checked every room in this ship after the other passengers left with the lifeboat. How could they miss you two?" Duo asked again.

Wufei, for once, refused to answer. Looking at her husband, Sally rolled her eyes and answered for him. "They can't check inside the closet, can they?"

Duo burst out laughing at once. "Wufei... you of all the people..... never thought you are the kinky type."

"Shut up, Maxwell." Wufei muttered.

"I'm a Maxwell too." Heero pointed out teasingly.

"Well, shut up both of you." The Chinese boy had an urged to throttle both of the Maxwells.

"So what will we do now?" Sally asked once Duo's laughter subsided.

"Have you found the weapons?" Duo asked.

Wufei and Sally shook their heads.

After thinking for some moments, Duo spoke up. "According to Julia, it will take about two hours for the government to locate this ship, but if the ship doesn't move, it will make it more difficult for them to find it. I estimate you two will have six hours to accomplish your mission before this ship is found."

"Just the two of us?" Wufei raised an eyebrow.

"We'll help you after we're done." Duo grinned and swept Heero into his arms. "I have waited too long to consummate our love."

Heero blushed at the Duo's words as his husband carried him out of the room, leaving a jaw dropped Wufei and a smiling Sally.

Five seconds passed in silence before Sally spoke up.

"You lost the bet again, Wufei."

+

The journey to their room seemed too fast for Heero. He was still enjoying his husband protective arms around him when he felt he was laid onto the bed. "What if they can't find the weapons in six hours?" Heero looked up to his hovering husband.

Duo grinned and leant down, kissing Heero's earlobe while whispering, "We'll sink the ship down then."

Heero's eyes widened for a moment before he burst out chuckling, which soon was muffled by his husband's mouth.

"Mine." The braided boy whispered to his spouse.

Heero smiled and welcomed his husband to confirm the fact physically.
