From Far Away
+ Part 19
Gasps of surprise were heard,
followed by a loud thump. The man named Alex turned his head to see a
braided boy who had fallen from his chair while his short haired companion
widened his eyes. "Don't be too surprised, boys. I'm the Shinigami
but I have no desire to do something bad." Alex turned back to the
bandits who were now gazing at him in fear. "Except for the ones
who have bad intentions..."
Alex moved a step forward while the bandits moved a step backward. "Leave
now, or you won't leave at all and become my Perfect Soldier's dinner."
Needless to say, the bandits fled within seconds.
Duo watched open mouthed at the man named Alex and followed him with his
wide violet eyes. What the hell was this man talking about? His Perfect
Soldier? He saw the bar owner come to the man and give him some money
while thanking and bowing to the man gratefully.
"Hey handsome, how long you will sit on the floor like that?"
Duo turned his head to meet the speaker. It was a girl in dancer clothes
with long blonde hair and forked eyebrows. She was standing next to him
and looked at him seductively. "Here, let me help you." The
girl quickly grabbed his hand and hauled him up back onto his chair while
she sat next to him.
Duo noticed Heero frown at the girl and knew it wasn't wise to have this
girl around him any longer. "Thanks... uh..."
"My name is Dorothy." The girl leant forward and latched her
hands onto Duo's arm. "You're new around here, aren't you? I'm a
pretty resourceful bar girl here. I can tell you what you want to know.
Especially about Shinigami."
"Shinigami, is that man really Shinigami?" Duo couldn't help
but to feel curious about the fact. After all he was the true Shinigami
and now there was another man using that name.
"Of course! Alex came to our town two months ago when we were about
to be attacked by soldiers from OZ. He then stepped in front of the troops
and announced his identity. The troops quickly retreated after that and
never tried to disturb us again." Dorothy explained happily.
"So he helped you all." Duo mused and then remembered something.
"Oh, why did I see the owner give some money to him?"
"He needs it to feed his Perfect Soldier, of course. We all give
him money in a certain period so that his Perfect Soldier gets fed enough
and won't seek us to be its food."
Duo gulped. <<Are you really a human eater, Hee-chan?>>
Heero's reply was only a telepathic growl.
"Is the Perfect Soldier so scary? How big is it?" Duo asked
in full curiosity.
"I never saw it." Dorothy answered and trailed one hand up to
Duo quickly shoved her hand. "You never saw it? So who has seen it
"No one. Are you crazy?" Dorothy rolled her eyes. "Alex
says if he ever summons it, we all can be eaten by it."
"Oh, so it's Alex who told all of you that the Perfect Soldier eats
humans?" Duo blinked.
"Of course, he controls it after all. He is so cool and brave....."
Dorothy took Duo's chin. "But not as handsome as you. Say, how about
if we go to my room and have a further talk there?"
Heero growled. He had watched the girl's attitude towards Duo and felt
fire crackling inside him as the girl became bolder. He never felt this
jealous before, not even when Hilde approached Duo. But then he realized
that now his feelings and mind were different from that time. Now he knew
Duo was his as he was Duo's, no one else may touch his Duo in intimate
gestures. Heero realized he was now feeling possessive over Duo. This
girl had to stop pestering his Duo... Now!
Duo smelled something burning and looked at Dorothy whose expression told
him she too smelled the same thing. He was startled a second later when
he saw Dorothy jump and cry out loudly. "AHHH!!" Dorothy stood
up and turned around, reaching for her hair, and that was when Duo realized
her hair was eaten by fire. The poor girl ran like mad to the pond in
front of the bar.
"What was that?" Duo stared dumbfounded at the door where Dorothy
had disappeared. He turned to Heero and saw the boy smirk in satisfaction.
A light bulb went on in Duo's head. <<You burnt her hair? I can't
<<I didn't like her touching you.>> Heero snorted.
Duo just stared at his lover and then smiled. <<Ah, my koi is jealous.>>
Heero just looked away and stood up. <<Come on, let's find an inn.>>
Duo's smile became wider as he followed Heero outside, walking next to
him. <<What do you think about this Alex?>> He reached for
Heero's hand and walked hand in hand with the stoic boy.
<<Your impostor, what's else?>>
<<But isn't there any possibility he is the real Shinigami instead
<<Duo, if you aren't the Shinigami, you would have had the same
fate as J when you took me.>>
Duo shivered and tightened his grip on Heero as he remembered what happened
to the bastard when he tried to claim Heero. <<Okay, so he's the
<<What are we going to do?>> They arrived at an inn and Heero
asked for the room while he kept talking with Duo using telepathy.
<<Nothing.>> Duo was amused as he watched Heero bargain their
room's price. This was one thing he had acknowledged since he had learned
Heero's language. The boy was very strict in using money. He almost bargained
for anything and usually won by using his death glare in the end.
Satisfied with the price, Heero took the key from the innkeeper and raised
an eyebrow to Duo. <<Nothing?>>
<<Yup, as long as he didn't do any harm, why should we do something
about it? Moreover, he stopped the bandits from robbing the bar>>
Duo followed Heero to their signed room.
<<But he also took money from the bar owner.>> Heero opened
the door. After both of them walked in, he locked the door back.
<<Oh yeah. He's some kind of mercenary then, ne? Just like you.>>
Duo stretched and started changing his clothes to sleep.
<<I don't imposture to get money.>> Heero snorted and changed
his clothes as well.
<<Of course>> Duo rolled his eyes while pulling down his pants.
Having finished stripping himself, he grinned and hugged his lover, who
had finished stripping except for his spandex and was about to put on
his tank top.
<<Duo?>> Heero stopped his movement as he felt Duo's bare
chest on his own bare back.
<<Let's find out more about this Alex tomorrow. For now, I want
to enjoy my time with my koi>> Duo nibbled Heero's neck and maneuvered
them to the bed.
<<Ryoukai...>> Heero moaned at Duo's ministration and let
his tank top fall onto the floor. He felt Duo sit down, and then he got
pulled down to sit on his braided lover's lap.
"You're so cute when you're jealous, you know." Duo whispered
near Heero's ear before he searched for Heero's mouth.
"I'm not jealous." Heero mumbled before surrendering his mouth
to be devoured by Duo.
Duo smiled into the kiss. As always, Heero never withdrew from any caress
he gave. He kissed Heero's lips gently and then went over the boy's face
to land feather kisses on it, showering Heero with his love. <<You
don't need to be jealous. I won't love anyone else but you, koi.>>
<<Aa...>> Heero moaned again and threw his head to lean on
Duo's shoulder while the braided youth sucked on his neck. Duo's hands
roamed over his body and then hooked his fingers into Heero's spandex,
pulling it down and stripping his short haired lover completely.
<<You're more beautiful than her, Hee-chan.>> Duo ran his
hands over Heero's naked body and slowly caressed every inch of it until
the naked boy was reduced into a quivering mess on his lap. <<Mine.>>
<<Always, Duo. Always>> Heero gasped as his nipples became
the attention of Duo's fingers. He arched up, surrendering himself to
the torturing fingers. He could feel Duo's hard arousal pressed against
his back and wondered how long Duo could stand tormenting him with that
hard on. His own cock was twitching in need as Duo kept playing with his
nipples. Deciding he couldn't wait any longer and stand the torment on
his nipples, Heero reached blindly behind him and was rewarded by a surprised
gasp as his hand found Duo's erect cock.
Before Duo managed to get over his surprise, he felt Heero rise a little,
turn around on his lap, then sink down onto his cock, which had been held
still by the boy. He could feel Heero's passage sheath him, still slick
with his earlier penetration a few hours ago, easing his way. However
the virgin tightness he was enveloped in almost made him come there and
then. Trying to hold his release, Duo put his hands on Heero's hips as
the boy sank down deeper, sheathing him with his warm cocoon. <<Heero!
God, you feel so good.>>
<<Mine!>> Heero growled and felt his eyes water when his sphincter
gave out and accepted Duo's cock, but then the pain was quickly gone as
he smoothly sank down onto Duo's cock until his delicate bottom touched
Duo's thighs. Having Duo buried inside him to the hilt, Heero let out
a satisfied smile and rested his head on Duo's shoulder. He moaned softly
as he felt Duo twitch inside him.
Duo enveloped Heero in his embrace. <<It's so stupid of you not
to prepare yourself first, though I admit I like the tight feeling of
it. Your body is... was... what the hell... it's virgin for God's sake!>>
Heero growled and pushed Duo to lie on the bed. <<I know what I'm
doing. Don't treat me like I'm made of glass just because I'm a virgin.>>
He lifted himself and then sat down, impaling himself onto Duo's cock
Duo moaned loudly but then Heero pasted his mouth on the braided boy's
lips, swallowing all sounds from Duo. Their tongues danced inside Heero's
mouth as the boy rode Duo wildly, impaling himself on Duo's cock over
and over until they reached their release at the same time.
Heero plopped down onto Duo and purred in contentment as he felt Duo empty
himself inside him. <<Mine...>> He nuzzled Duo's neck and
bit down on Duo's shoulder.
Duo jerked up. <<Whoa, you're really jealous of the girl, ne Hee-chan?>>
<<Am not>> Heero growled while licking his bite mark on Duo.
Duo just smiled and put his hands on Heero's waist, pulling the boy off
of his cock and gathering him into his embrace. They both soon drifted
off into slumber.
<<Well, looks like this is where he lives. I wonder why he chooses
a place on the edge of the city, far from neighborhood.>> Duo looked
at the small hut from behind the bushes. He had asked the bar owner about
Alex's place, not without trouble though. Duo wondered whether Dorothy
would still have any hair left if he had been one second late in pushing
the girl from him and grabbing his jealous koi out of the bar.
<<What will we do now?>> Heero asked from his crouching place
beside Duo, eyes still watching the hut. <<Look, he's coming out>>
Duo watched the man. He was still wearing the same outfit as yesterday
and doing some exercises in front of the hut.
He was surprised when he saw some children run out from the house and
latch themselves onto the man.
"Daddy, let's play."
"Daddy, I'm hungry."
<<one, two, three, four, five, six. Wow there are six of them.>>
Duo watched with his jaw dropping as Alex laughed and lifted up the smallest
child. <<He must be using the money to raise the children. See,
he's not a bad person, Heero.>>
There was no answer from Heero, making Duo turn to look at his lover.
Heero was looking at Alex and the children longingly, making Duo remember
his lover was never once treated so nicely like that by his own father.
Duo understood how badly Heero wanted to have someone to care for and
love him, like he used to feel before he met Sister Helen and the other
orphans. Emotions welled up inside Duo as he reached for Heero and gathered
the boy into his arms, hugging him tightly.
"Duo?" Heero whispered confusedly.
<<You have me, koi.>> Duo kissed Heero's forehead gently.
<<I love you with all my heart.>> The braided boy felt Heero
lean his head on his shoulder.
<<I love you too, Duo.>> Heero nuzzled Duo's neck, feeling
so grateful to have Duo at his side. He wasn't alone anymore. He had a
person who loved him and whom he loved back.
"Hello, what are you doing here?" Duo was surprised at the voice
and looked up to see Alex Mueller hover above him. "I'm sorry to
surprise you, but it looks like your friend isn't feeling well. Is he
Heero, who had pulled away from Duo, opened his mouth to answer but Duo
quickly put his hand on the boy's mouth, preventing him from speaking,
while Duo answered Alex. "Actually, he's a little tired. Can we rest
in your place for a while?"
"Why not? Follow me." Alex straightened up and walked toward
his hut, followed by the children.
<<I'm not tired>>
<<Your ass is tired after this morning exercise, Hee-chan.>>
<<... for someone who doesn't lie, you're doing pretty well... but,
my ass is not tired, it heals quickly, remember?>>
<<Damn, I forget about it again... Come on, tell me which part of
you is tired so I'm not lying>>
Heero snorted <<...my head.>>
<<My head is tired of your telepathic rambling.>>
<<Heeeeeeeeeeroooooo, you are mean!>> Duo pouted.
Alex of course couldn't hear the telepathic conversation, nor that he
could see the exchange expression since he had turned his back toward
<<Just pretend to be sick, koi.>> Duo carried Heero in his
arms and followed Alex inside.
<<Duo, what do you want with him?>> Heero scowled but he did
pretend to be sick, leaning his head against Duo's shoulder.
<<I just want to know more about him. Looks like he is a good person.>>
<<He can also be a bad person. You can get hurt if he plans to rob
<<Ah, but then I have my strong koi to save me, ne?>>
Heero scowled and refused to speak further. Duo just chuckled and then
pretended to be worried as he sat Heero on a chair.
"Here, drink this tea. It will help make you relax and erase some
of your tiredness." Alex offered a cup of hot tea to Heero.
"Thank you so much, Sir." Duo smiled and felt a tug on the braid.
He turned around and saw that one of the children had his braid in her
tiny hands. "Whoa, not the braid please. It's enough that I have
Heero tugging my braid everyday."
<<Hn.>> Heero snorted telepathically while sipping his tea.
<<Thank you, I know you love my hair, Hee-chan>> Duo scooped
the child up and gently tried to pull his braid from the child's grip
but to no avail.
"She likes you." Alex smiled as the little girl laughed happily
and swung Duo's braid.
"I can see that." Duo made a face. "Is she your child,
"No, she is my sister, Marimeaya." Alex gestured to the other
children. "Our parents have died so I have to take care of them all.
Hey, how do you know my name?" Alex looked at Duo in surprise. "No
wait, I think I remember, you're the boys in the bar I met last night,
Before Duo had time to answer, the door was slammed opened so hard that
it surprised the child in Duo's hands and she started crying.
"What the..." Alex stood up and saw several men standing at
the door. Except for the man, who stood in the middle, they were the same
men Alex threatened at the bar yesterday.
"Are you Alex Mueller, the Shinigami?" The new man walked forward.
It seemed he was the leader, and the others stepped aside. He was wearing
a warrior outfit as well, but he had no weapons in sight.
"Yes, I am. It's not polite to barge into someone else's house, you
know." Alex stood up, one hand on his whip. "You better not
The man just smirked and then frowned as the child in Duo's arms cried
louder. Alex saw it and gestured for the man to continue their conversation
outside of the house. The man nodded and walked out, followed by the others.
"Please take care of the children, boys." Alex spoke to Duo
and Heero and then walked to follow the men.
Duo and Heero looked at each other.
<<Do you think he will be okay, Heero?>>
<<I don't know.>>
<<Better watch them, then>>
Duo walked to the window, still holding Marimeaya, whose crying had reduced
into sobbing. Heero walked next to him after telling the other children
not to make any noise. Not that they would anyway, they were too frightened
to do anything else, except sit down and clutch onto each other.
"So what's your business here?" Alex asked the man.
"My name is Trant, the leader of this group. You have stopped my
men yesterday on their way to collect money."
"I don't like your group's attitude, and you might want to apologize
now or I'll call my Perfect Soldier."
The other man just smirked. "That's if you are really the Shinigami."
Alex paled at the sentence, but he quickly masked it with a glare. "Of
course I am. I suggest you all leave now or you'll be my Perfect Soldier's
"Oh really?" Trant looked at Alex. "Then can you explain
why I heard the news of the Perfect Soldier destroying Tsubarov's palace
a few days ago."
Alex turned more pale. "Wh..what?"
"I have asked the citizens here and they said you never left this
town in two months of your arrival, and you never summoned the Perfect
Soldier while you were here." Trant looked smug. "I think you're
"How... how dare you!" Alex stammered. "Leave now or I
can't guarantee the safety of your lives. I won't hesitate to call my
"If you can call it." Trant stepped forward, making Alex step
back. "Prove yourself as the Shinigami, Alex Mueller. Attack!"
Alex nervously grabbed his whip as some men charged forward. He attacked
one of the men, but the other man quickly cut his whip off. Another man
managed to approach Alex and swung his sword at him. "Die, impostor!"
But before the man's sword managed to touch Alex, a staff hit the attacker,
causing him to back off. The other two men were surprised at the intrusion
and didn't see a sword slash their hands, disabling them from holding
their weapons. Alex blinked as he saw his guests standing in front of
him, staff and sword on their hands, fighting his attackers. Within a
minute, they managed to knock out all the men, leaving Trant alone.
"What the..." Trant looked at Alex's rescuers. They were only
two boys. "How dare you interrupt me..."
"Of course. You're a bad guy here." Duo spoke up and pointed
his staff at Trant. "You already knew he was an impostor so why did
you attack him? Not to mention you were many and he was alone."
"The citizens don't know he's an impostor and if I kill him, this
city will succumb to me." Trant sneered and drew his sword. He charged
toward Duo but was surprised when the short haired boy came between them
and blocked him. He quickly stopped and backed away, looking very angry.
"How dare you! I'll see to it you die in pain!"
Trant knelt and touched the ground with one hand. "Come, my Taurus!"
The ground shook and the area, where Trant touched, opened and a giant
bull shaped stone came out of it.
A golem! Duo widened his eyes as the bull golem stood on its four legs
as high as him. It was really big!
"This golem is really strong. No one can beat it." Trant sneered
at Alex mockingly. "Oh, the Perfect Soldier surely can destroy it.
Try calling your Perfect Soldier, Alex, or you'll get crushed by my Taurus."
Trant laughed then watched as his creature charged forward. The braided
boy stepped out of the bull's way and pulled the impostor with him but
the short haired boy didn't move. He merely watched the bull heading toward
him, raising one hand toward the bull.
"You are either stupid or don't value your life, boy!" Trant
laughed but stopped suddenly as he saw the boy's hand glow brightly. The
glow turned into a ball and hit his Taurus, destroying it into tiny particles.
Trant stood in surprise and shock. A boy could destroy his Taurus in one
single blow! It was impossible! He knelt and touched the ground again,
this time with both of his hands.
Heero watched impassively as two more Taurus golems came out from the
ground Trant touched. He lifted both of his hands and released his Power,
turning the golems into dust. "Omae o korosu." Heero sent his
Power to Trant, not giving the man any time to summon more golems. Trant
was out of the living the moment Heero's Power hit him.
"Well done, Hee-chan." Duo grinned from his place with Alex.
<<I'll give you a kiss as a reward later, koi.>>
<<Oh do you want me to give something else, then? A part of me that
can be put inside you?>>
Duo leered at Heero before turning to Alex for a more serious matter.
"Alex, why do you pretend to be Shinigami?"
Alex snapped from his shock of what happened in front of him. "Let's
talk inside, shall we?"
Duo nodded and followed Alex inside the house, while Heero took care to
remove the men, dead or unconscious, from the hut. Alex calmed the children
and asked them to go take a nap before sitting down on the chair around
the table and gesturing Duo to sit down at another chair as well.
<<I'll bring these men to the mayor to put them in the prison.>>
<<Okay, take care.>>
Duo focused back at Alex, who was studying him. "What is it?"
"You had known I wasn't the Shinigami from the first time, hadn't
"How did you know?"
"Tell me why do you pretended to be him first."
"I did it because it's the fastest way to get money. I need it badly
for the children." Alex explained.
Duo nodded. "But it isn't a safe way, Alex. You need to find another
"I know." Alex sighed. "I'm planning to stop this charade
if I have enough money to open an item shop in another city."
Duo just looked at the man, wheels turning in his mind.
"I can never thank you enough for this." Alex looked at Duo
from his seat on the cart.
Duo finished tying their horses to the cart and smiled to Alex. "It's
nothing. I just want to help the children, Alex. I don't want their big
brother getting caught. That leaves them with no one to take care of them."
Alex smiled. "Thank you so much..."
"Duo." Duo smiled back." My name is Duo Maxwell. Here,
take this money. Use it to open the item store." He shoved the money
pouch into Alex's hand.
"Duo, I can't ever thank you enough for this."
"Just take care of Marimeaya and the others. That'll be enough for
me." Duo stepped back. "Go now, Alex."
"But what will your friend say later?" Alex still seemed to
hesitate. "This is his money and his horse too, right? He'll be angry
if you give them away without his permission."
"I don't mind." Came a voice from behind them.
<<You're eavesdropping on us, aren't you, koi?>>
<<Thought so. How are the men?>>
<<In the prison now.>>
Duo just grinned as Heero stood next to him. "You heard Heero, Alex.
Go now, we'll take care of everything here."
"Thank you so much, Duo. And you too Heero. If not because of you,
Trant would've had my head by now." Alex looked at Heero. "I
wish I can be as strong as you. You destroyed the golems Trant said could
could only be destroyed by the Per..." Alex blinked. He looked at
Duo and then at Heero, and then back at Duo again. "So that's why
you knew I'm not the real Shinigami. You're the real..."
Duo just grinned and hit the horses hard enough to make them start running,
pulling the cart along. "Sayonara, Alex."
"Duo!" Alex was surprised and held the rein tightly, while looking
back to the two boys who had helped him.
Duo could hear Alex shout something between the sounds of the horses and
cart running on the ground, but he couldn't make a word of it.
<<You heard him, didn't you?>>
<<What did he say?>>
<<Thank you so much, Shinigami and Perfect Soldier>>
Capital of OZ....
"Lord Treize, I have great news for you."
"And what may it be, Lady Une?"
"I have found the Shinigami and his Perfect Soldier."
