Here it is... my
first 2x1 lemon... or as I like to call it, "Akuma's epilogue". She somehow
talked me into writing it. So if it seems weird or OOC, blame Akuma. I
intend to. ^_^ Sorry it took me so long... my dad had to be rushed to
the emergency room last week (he's all better now :) and I didn't get
to write at all during all that craziness. Ok, I'll shut up now
and let you get to the fic... (hope you can stomach it Shi-chan!)
Rating: this part NC-17 baby!
Pairing: 1x2/2x1, 3+5, 4+H, 13+6
Warnings: AU, OOC, a tad angsty at times, fantasy, magic, lemon

Beag, Sì Mûr + Epilogue
Heero looked up from the book
he was reading as the door to the bedroom slammed open. He watched in
amusement as his long-haired lover pushed the door shut behind him, flounced
across the room, and collapsed dramatically on their bed. The Unseleigh
prince sighed deeply, throwing one arm over his eyes.
"Hard day at work, love?" Heero teased, setting the book aside before
joining his mate on the bed.
Duo groaned, rolling over so that he was draped on his stomach across
Heero's lap. The short-haired sidhe took his cue and began rubbing soothing
circles along his lover's back and wings.
"If I have to attend one more formal function, I'm going to murder someone,"
Duo muttered, arching his body to Heero's touch.
"Then I guess Treize will be awfully disappointed when his only brother
doesn't show up for his and Zechs's bonding ceremony," Heero said, smirking.
Duo groaned again. "Oh shut up, Yuy. And don't tempt me. Do you even realize
how many weddings and bonding ceremonies we've attended in the last six
moons? Quatre and Hilde, Trowa and Wufei, Jay and Gee - and quite frankly,
I don't even want to think about that one - not to mention every high
ranking official and noble in both our kingdoms, and now Treize and Zechs."
"Don't forget our own, love," Heero said, bending down to nibble on the
back of Duo's neck.
The violet-eyed prince purred under Heero's touch. "Mmm. How could I forget?
You told the cleric-priest to hurry up in the middle of the blessing,
just so you could drag me out of the temple as soon as the vows were spoken
to ravage me."
"I couldn't help myself. You don't realize how beautiful you looked that
Duo turned over and gave his bond-mate a smile. "Did you hear me complaining?"
The smile turned to a frown as he realized Heero's hands had stopped moving.
"And who said you could stop that massage? My front is just as tense as
Heero's eyebrows twitched in amusement as he resumed running his hands
over Duo's body. "As you wish, Your Highness."
"Mmmm... much better."
"So what was it this time? Petty squabbling amongst the nobles or unrest
amongst the citizens?"
Duo's forehead creased. It had been six moons since the two monarchs had
declared peace on the battlefield, but getting the people to recognize
the treaty had been a long and arduous process. It seemed like not a day
went by without some kind of minor incident happening. Though relations
had been getting better, it would take years to establish trust between
the Seleigh and Unseleigh courts.
The citizens seemed to be taking the newly won peace better than the nobles.
Every other day it seemed that nobles from both clans came to the palace
claiming to have been injured or insulted in some way. And Duo, who had
been named Prince Regent for the Unseleigh kingdom while the king was
away, had to deal with it all.
"For once, neither," Duo answered, rubbing his temples. "The Unseleigh
nobles were bitching about seating arrangements for Treize's bonding feast.
It took Quatre and I three candlemarks to rearrange it so that
everyone was happy. I swear, the next time I see my brother, remind me
to kill him for putting me in charge while he runs off with his lover."
Heero chuckled. "Treize didn't 'run off' and you know it. He and Zechs
need some time to cement their Bond. They'll return in a few moons and
you won't have to deal with the nobles anymore."
"At least not until they go back to the Seleigh court." Duo yawned. "I
pity poor Relena, actually. Not only will she be acting as Regent for
the Seleigh court when Zechs and Treize are here, but the future of both
clans rests on her shoulders."
Heero snorted. "Well of the four of you, she's the only one likely to
"I don't know. You should have seen the look she was giving to my cousin
Dorothy at our bonding feast."
Heero's eyes widened slightly. "Still, at least she is physically able
to bear children. Unless Danu sees fit to bless us with a miracle, Relena
is the one who will have to bear the heir to both thrones."
"Well in case of a miracle, you carry the kid," Duo said wearily. "There's
just... no way... I'm going through that."
Duo's words were punctuated by deep yawns. For the first time, Heero actually
saw the dark circles under his lover's eyes. His skin was slightly pale
and his body looked thinner. He knew acting as Prince Regent was a consuming
job, but he hadn't realized just how much it had been affecting Duo lately.
Cautiously he opened their bond so as not to alert Duo to what he was
doing. The last few moons had given them practice at controlling their
bond. While neither could shut the other's presence out completely, they
had learned to control it enough so that their thoughts and emotions didn't
leak into each other at random.
Heero nearly gasped aloud at what he felt. Duo was suffering from severe
exhaustion combined with what he suspected was the beginnings of malnutrition.
Duo's audiences with the nobles often caused him to miss meals, but he'd
always assured Heero that he ate in the meetings. Obviously it wasn't
enough. If Duo kept this up, he'd become seriously ill very soon. Heero
felt guilty for not noticing sooner, but now that he had, he could do
something about it.
Noticing that his lover had fallen asleep in his lap, Heero quickly stripped
Duo of his clothes then gently shifted the prince onto some pillows. He
drew a heavy coverlet over the sleeping boy to keep out the slight winter
chill at bay. Then with a light kiss on his forehead, he carefully crept
off the bed. He'd leave his bondmate alone to get some rest. Meanwhile,
he had some people to see and a personal mission to carry out.
