I didn't go downstairs again
after that. I mean, who would when four men separated by a wooden ceiling,
were talking about you? It was nice, though, that they actually had a
CLUE of what the hell was going on with me. Maybe they really could help
me and stop jumping me every time the rest of 'em were out of the room.
But it was really just a scrape on the surface. They wouldn't ever truly
understand, as long as I kept my mouth shut...
And their secrets kept theirs closed as well.
I didn't move when I got to my room. I sat through the whole night, supported
by the bed frame, and stared at the wall opposite from me. I never really
thought of anything. Hell, I didn't want to think of anything. Which was
probably the reason why I drugged myself into a sleepless stupor. It was
nice just to sit there and think of absolutely nothing. It was great to
just float in some cosmic swirl and not feel anything. It was like a heaven;
no thought, no pain, no memories. It was like sleeping in phase 2(1) only
my eyes were open and I was registering every creak, every muffled voice,
every whisper in the night.
Oh. And I was definitely registering the cold metal in my hand. My faithful
Ugh, get off it. I wasn't planning on using it. I wasn't that far off
on the end of my rope. It was just comforting knowing that my trigger
happy finger was wrapped snuggling around the pistol, ready to blow my
brain to the ceiling. Or even knowing I had the ability to shoot the next
person that came through the door.
But, unfortunately, nobody did step through my door. Of course there was
a lot of noises behind it, such as the shuffle of footsteps as one by
one, each pilot took to his bed. There was the sound of the water running,
the running motor of a toothbrush going, and the soft murmur of voices
in solemn goodnight. But they didn't come to my door and wish that the
'bed bugs' didn't bite me during my six hours of rest. It was almost comical
of how much this related to those old talk shows on the radio. I could
imagine every footstep, every breath, every blink that the ex-pilots made
outside. And yet, I wasn't apart of it. I was just on the listening end
of the radio waves.
Yes. Comical indeed.
I did think of a few things though. Like, by tomorrow, it would be all
normal again. I had just over-reacted. It wasn't really a problem. All
I had to do was smile, leave a trashy magazine that I 'forgot about' somewhere
in the house and than everything would be peachy. They would think my
hormones were still in fucking overdrive and that Wufei was the real one
that was going into dramatics.
So why didn't this comfort me?
Why did I get sick at the thought of lying to them again?
True, I wasn't really lying. I mean, the comic did hold some pleasurable
interest way back when, but now...
Well, I believe we covered that already, didn't we?
What baffled me was why I even carried that dirty thing with me all the
time. I would have willingly burned it up or used it for smokin' crack
(except that finger-fuckin' was screaming on each page, and that would
have resulted to get me a little nauseous instead of calming me). But
I guess the fact that it was always on the bottom of my bag never reminded
me to chuck the thing out the nearest window. Nor do I think the passing
neighborhood kids would enjoy a porno magazine thrown at their faces.
I finally moved my head at one point of the night and looked at my alarm
clock that was plugged in and still sitting on the floor. Glaring, angry,
red numbers bled 3:24 am, as if they, themselves, were disgusted with
me as well. I could feel my drug begin to wear down and I had this unbelievable
cottonmouth taste in the back of my throat. I swallowed thickly, trying
to wetten the dry surface but with no success. I wouldn't be surprised
if I hadn't ever swallowed once during my lapse with reality. I was very
sure that I hadn't moved a muscle either, because when I stood up, my
butt was so numb that it hurt.
I'm sure you wanted to hear that.
Dragging my heavy feet to the door, I opened it and slowly peeked out.
I heard nothing but the soft ticking downstairs of the clock in the kitchen.
There was a night-light in the wall in the middle of the hall, compliments
of Quatre I presumed. I'm sure he took it into consideration that we might
get up in the middle of the night to take a piss. I took another look
around, waiting for sudden movement in the bedrooms to reveal that someone
else was up and around. When I was positive that they were dreaming away,
I walked back into the darkness of my room and dug through my bag. Like
loyal magnets, I found two beer bottles swipe past my fingertips and I
eagerly grabbed them. And just in case the tipple didn't work, I grabbed
a couple pills as well from the little medical bottles I stuffed in. I
guess the drugs I picked up must have been the new ones, but I couldn't
see very well in the darkness of the room.
I couldn't wait for the fog that they would bring.
As quiet as a snake, I slithered out of my room, carrying my drugs and
a few beer bottles with me.
I had wound up in the kitchen at the snack bar on one of the squeaky stools.
I had downed at least one bottle and was working on my second when I had
casually looked over to the hallway I had left out from my previous description.
It was a solo hallway, leading to a room that could have been a music
room, an office, another bedroom, or something. Quatre, of course, made
it into his personal practice hall. When we were hiding out together,
I would wake up early with him, make myself a cup of coffee, a cup of
tea for Quatre, then waltz into the music room where he would be just
rosining his bow. After putting the cup on the messy desk with all his
music spread out on it, I would take my seat in a student desk on the
other side of the room against the wall. I never questioned why Quatre
even owned one though I could guess he was personally home schooled and
had many memories in the old thing. As I drank from my mug, I would watch
Quatre stand in the new morning sun from the window behind him and play
a few slow, drawn-out notes as he played up the scale from D to fourth
finger E. I loved watching him wiggle his very small fingers on the fingerboard,
because every time he would nip his bottom lip in concentration as he
stretched his short pinky on the last note to catch the right tune and
still make it incredibly long and graceful. After he was done warming
up, his eyes would finally leave the shiny instrument in his hands and
look at his chosen piece of music for the morning, sitting and waiting
for him on the black stand in front him. And then he would begin with
such fury and spirit that it would physically make me flinch.
He always put so much into his violin.
Quatre even taught me a bit about how to play the violin. I remember the
first day, in this very cabin, that he finished his piece, looked at me
still sitting comfortably in the student seat before offering the instrument
to me with a smile. He asked me to play for him and I stuttered on my
next sip from my warm cup. I explained to him that I didn't know a thing
about the instrument and he just laughed. He replied that the way I'd
been watching him for the past few weeks, I should be able to at least
put my chin on the instrument correctly and even play the first scale.
To say the least, I took the offered instrument and began to learn.
When we were separated for different battles, I continued to teach myself
to impress Quatre. It really paid off. By the next time we saw each other,
I had taught myself different short tunes. He was so impressed and proud
of me... that he bought me a violin.
To repay him, I gave him my love.
My achy sigh was drowned out by the next gulp of my drink. This trip down
memory lane certainly didn't make me feel better, nor did it explain why
I left it out of my previous outlay of the house. Well, you see, it's
because it wasn't important. No, really. It wasn't. It was just a stupid
door at the end of the hall that I locked up a long time ago so nobody
could get in.
Huh? What? Oh. I guess I should back up. Sorry, drinking kind of makes
me forgetful, don't cha know. Yeah, the door is all locked up and the
key is thrown away. Right after the war, I came here and dumped a lot
of stuff into that room. Quatre had once given me the key to the room
to lock up since he was running off for another mission. From then on,
he forgot that I even had it, and I kept it, forgetting that I did as
well. But one day, I saw it in my sock drawer and tried every door in
my apartment to figure out what it belonged to. I only realized that it
belonged to the cabin when Heero and I ran here to take care of that school
mission. The very hour that Heero blew up the colony, I was on Earth and
throwing a few possessions into the storage slash music room. Then I pulled
out the key and locked it, intent on never stepping one foot in that ghostly
room ever again.
The key is lost in the wilderness right now.
Looking away from the empty hallway, I looked at the pill next to my beer
bottle before hastily picking it up. I slipped the horse pill in my mouth
and downed with the burning acid of my beer before slamming the bottle
back down. I laid my head on the counter and groaned, wiping my dreary
eyes with tired hands. I wasn't around today to see when Quatre found
out about the locked door, or around to watch his little tantrum as he
realized he (but it wasn't really him, as you know) had locked one of
his violins and music pieces in that room. It was mind boggling that he
didn't have the door knocked down by Heero or something. Oh well. Maybe
he really didn't care.
I certainly didn't.
Dragging myself from the stool and bringing a squeal of complaint with
me (from the chair, you morons), I took what was left of my beer bottle
and the new, unopened one and walked towards the study. I liked the study.
A lot. I didn't have any memories in them. Yessum, I liked the little
tidy living room. It was nice.
Did I mention I liked it?
God damnit, I sound like a fucking idiot.
Sighing, I turn away from the couch and look out the window. Actually,
I didn't look out it. I just... um... looked at it. But I didn't see it.
You know? Kind of like this out-of-bodiness, I wasn't really seeing, thinking,
or feeling. Even if I sounded like a total moron, it was nice to not be
me for a while. Oh, I like that thought. Not be me.
I sighed and as soon as I felt myself breathe for once, it was like I
lost my balance. I fell back on the couch and giggled as my eyesight swirled.
I was staring at the ceiling, taking sips from my beer, and felt nothing.
I was at bliss. Just being nobody was ecstasy. Just being like this, with
no real thought, no real acknowledge to my surroundings would make me
die happy. What an oxymoron! I couldn't feel but I was happy! Haha...
"Oh, shit," I giggled into the night. "I am so fucking
high. Ahahaha... "
When I was laughing at the darkness, I thought I heard something. I quieted,
though I was still giggling and I pushed myself up (which was no easy
task). I took a little bit more of my drink before I childishly I peeked
over the side of the couch, putting my beer bottle in between my legs.
I looked around the dark room curiously; searching for the creak in the
floorboards I know I had heard.
What I saw made me want to scream bloody murder in fright. Instead I bit
Wufei and Heero were just standing there, staring at me.
Hungrily. Like hungry men.
Angrily. Ready to beat me into submission.
Seductively. I don't know why I didn't resist them.
And I just sat there. I couldn't run away.
My eyes grew so wide that it brought tears to my eyes. Or maybe the pounding
of my heart did that. Whatever it was, I was ready to start bawling like
a baby. My palms were so wet all of a sudden that I was getting my jeans
damp as I gripped them so tight, so very tight. And they just stood there,
drinking me in, for what parts they could see. Wufei's arms were crossed
over his white tank top that we wore at night, black silk bottoms nearly
hiding his feet in the bagginess of it all. When Heero traded in his clothes
to start wearing normal clothing, he took his green top and used it now
as a sleep shirt. But the funny thing was that he was wearing his spandex
just like the war.
And I could see the enormous boner he had through them.
"Oh, God, no... " I whispered into the couch then said it again.
I closed my eyes tightly, repeating my mantra over and over, praying that
when I opened my eyes, they would get the hint and go away. When I dared
to open my eyes again, I found that they were gone.
My heart leapt into my throat with joy.
Then back down again as I felt a pair of hands clamp on my shoulders.
I was whirled around quickly and I had a brief encounter of midnight blue
eyes before I tried to scream. But with perfect timing that the two always
caught, Heero's mouth slammed into mine and I choked on my shout for help,
along with the thrusting tongue and extra saliva. I swallowed desperately,
trying to breathe but finding no air at all as Heero stole it all away
and my nose was pressed firmly against his cheek. His tongue twisted and
probed every corner of my very used mouth. Tears were trekking down my
cheeks and I beat my hands repeatedly against his chest. Get off, get
off! But nothing was working. Even as I brought my fists down on that
nearly naked chest, drove my teeth in that fucking tongue, and kicked
my legs wildly against the hands tugging my jeans down, it was fruitless.
I could feel the liquid of my beer sinking into the cushion of the couch
and every time my gradually naked leg encountered it, I kept imagining
the luke-warm cum that would be left over with me on the bed as my lover
would get up and begin getting dressed. Just me, the sweat-filled sheets,
and the passion I had spilt being sucked into the bed.
I began to fight even harder.
"Get the fuck off me!" I gasped as soon as Heero released my
lips, satisfied that he had touched every corner of my burning mouth.
I felt bile climb up my throat and I was just about to upchuck in Heero's
face when he threw me down on the couch. I choked on the burning acid
and swallowed it back down, feeling every hissing tingle as it returned
to my stomach. Wufei ripped the rest of pants off and I squeaked, trying
to draw up my legs to cover myself, hands diving down to my lower regions
But the quick bastards caught me before I could even get an inch advantage.
Wufei's claw-like grip caught my ankles and dragged the fighting limbs
back down, his cool wet mouth sucking on one of my prickly legs. Heero
captured my wrists and brought them above my head. And like a pro, like
an experienced lover, he climbed on top of me and on my uplifted lap.
His covered cock touched my fleshy, limp one and I cried harder, turning
my head away to bury in my arm. Heero's hands tightened and I cried out
in pain, just waiting for them to break.
Heero didn't know his strength, Heero didn't know his strength, Heero
didn't know his strength, its going to be all right, just relax, he doesn't
know his own strength.
Heero's weight shifted and he leaned down, lips right against my ear and
his arousal bruising into my refusing one.
"Slut," he whispered. My tear-filled eyes widened, the bottom
of them blurred from the liquid I was spilling everywhere. How did he
know!? How did he-!?
What the fuck!?
I... was... kissing him. I was kissing Heero! I couldn't control it! I
couldn't control my tongue as it thrust inside, swallowing his happy groans.
I couldn't direct my sucking as I pulled his tongue back into my nearly
bile-filled mouth. I didn't have the power to control the hands that he
let loose to roam his entire frame. I didn't order the legs that spread
all by themselves, letting Wufei's mouth skip from my ankle to my knee
to my thigh.
"Whore... " Heero breathed as I let his lips free.
So, I shut my eyes.
It was all cut short though when a hand clamped down on my mouth.
"Maxwell! Duo! Wake up!"
What... the... fuck... ?
I peeked one eye open slowly, carefully. Onyx eyes were staring down at
me, wide-eyed and worried. I stared at them and they stared at me. I wasn't
naked anymore. I wasn't about to throw up. And I was beginning to think
the eyes weren't real when they blinked and something warm touched my
"Duo... ? Are you... in there... ?"
I couldn't help it. I started laughing. The eyes seemed to be taken aback
by my little outburst of giggles and pulled back. Suddenly, I could see
the eyes' entire owner and I realized it was Wufei. I continued to laugh
at him, throwing my hands into my hair, and gave a harsh, rough pull.
Oh, I was bugging out. I was on a fucking whirlwind high. I was so high
that I was...
Hallucinating! Oh fuck, that's just great!
Wufei's hands closed in on my wrists and pulled them free from my ratty
hair. Once they were free, he let them go as well, and gripped my shoulders.
He shook me roughly, face contorted now into determination. He even shook
me so hard that my brain rattled and so did my teeth, snapping off each
other like pop rocks. I made weird giggling noises to each rough jerk,
almost like I was hiccupping. When I finally got tired of having the room
spin as my head was tossed from side to side, I grew quiet and Wufei stopped
shaking. We stared at each other in unblinking silence, my fingers digging
into his wrists and his eyes burning into my teary face.
"You kissed me," Wufei said, as if he was reminding me to do
a chore. I blinked at him, hands loosening. My version was beginning to
swirl again and for a moment, I thought Wufei was kissing my cheek, down
to my neck. I fought him wildly for a minute but he shoved me back down,
grinning at me in the dark.
"Hold still, faggot," he growled and started kissing my cheek
again, over and over the same spots. I hissed and dug my nails in his
"Duo! Stop it!"
My eyes opened again and flashed around wildly. Wufei was above me again,
hands light on my shoulders. I made a small noise and shut my eyes again.
I was just hallucinating. Calm down, Duo. Its going to be okay...
"You kissed me," Wufei repeated.
"I... know," I sighed and turned my head away quickly, eyes
opening to look out the window. I could see two silhouettes of trees outside,
mirroring two stars trapped in space. Flashes of color from the drug kept
bursting in my gaze, like blood splattering in the air from a gunshot
wound. I drank in the wild purples and million colors of blue, while I
counted the minutes that passed, waiting for Wufei to make his next move.
I could literally hear the tinkering of his brain as he thought carefully
over his next words.
Finally, he said, "You were drinking."
"No, duh, Wufei," I sighed, wishing with all my might that I
was one of those stars right now. Wishing for anything to not be with
me, to be very far away from where I was right now. I'd like to be a burning
ball of gas. Gas doesn't think, or feel, or... Gas isn't a being.
I hated having a will.
Wufei's hands tightened on my shoulders and I winced in pain, returning
the gesture by tensing mine.
Finally, he spoke again. "Do you have any more?"
