Treasure + Part 1
They were travelling for approximately
two hours when Heero finally noticed. He gave Duo a sidelong glance and
had trouble containing his smile. Duo was squirming and fidgeting in his
saddle, scratching all the reachable spots on his body.
"Duo, what are you doing?" he asked his voice completely steady.
Duo's head shot up and he gave Heero a startled look that quickly turned
into one of annoyance. "I think I'm allergic to women's clothes,"
Duo muttered. Seeing Heero´s eyebrows raise he explained. "Everything
Heero´s white stallion -called Wing because of his speed- trotted over
to Duo's black mare, Shinigami. Duo gave her the name of the God of Death
because of her devious character to attack people - everyone besides him
and Heero. Heero reached over and caught Duo's scratching hand in his.
"Stop it, Duo. You will either tear the dress or fall from the horse.
Shini is starting to get nervous because of you."
Duo huffed and pouted while folding his arms across his chest. "I
feel like an idiot, I look like an idiot and I'm even riding like
an idiot." He pointed disgustingly to the special saddle he was riding
"Duo, you are supposed to be a woman. And women use specially designed
saddles to ride," Heero explained patiently.
"Yeah, yeah, I'm not stupid, I know that. But I can't ride like that
all the way to the capital city. No way. I'm getting cramps in my legs."
Heero sighed. He turned Wing and moved with the stallion to Duo's other
side so that Duo was now with his back and right side to him.
Duo frowned and looked over his shoulder. "What are you doing, Heero?"
There was suspicion in his voice.
Heero reached over and gripped Duo tightly around his waist and shoulders
pulling him over to Wing so that they were now riding on the same horse
Duo squeaked in panic as he was lifted from the saddle and seated securely
in front of his best friend. Instinctively he hugged Heero tightly around
his narrow waist to steady himself.
"Damn it, Lowe, what do you think you are doing?" Duo bellowed,
meeting Heero´s amused eyes with his own angry ones.
The group of soldiers Heero´s father sent to accompany them laughed. Catcalls
reached their ears and Duo turned red.
"You are crazy, Heero. And I'm crazy, too. How could I let myself
be talked into this? I had to be totally out of myself when I agreed to
do it. Totally wacko..." Duo mumbled to himself again and again his
eyes fixed on the green bushes that grew on both sides of the dust road
they were travelling on.
Heero´s lips curved with a small smile. He couldn't help himself. Duo
was cute while pouting and talking to himself. He looked down as his best
friend who was snuggled comfortably against his chest and... really looked
at him for the first time since they had known each other. And what he
saw stunned him totally.
Duo was beautiful. His long chestnut hair was held up by a beautifully
carved gold clasp leaving his long neck bare. A few locks escaped the
clasp and framed the beautiful and delicately featured face --
unforgettable big violet eyes, a long thin nose and pouty lips. The black
and violet travel dress with its comfortable wide shirt and long wide
sleeves were hugging his narrow waist, and the bunch of material where
usually women's breast were was making a bulge of its own, masking the
flatness of Duo's chest. But still - under the mask of an incredibly attractive
woman he could still see his best friend. And that was what startled him
the most - he wasn't attracted to the woman whose role Duo played. He
was attracted to the boy who was hiding behind the mask.
The first spark of desire started to burn in his guts. Holding Duo securely
in his arms, feeling his arms around his waist, his face pressed into
Heero´s shoulder, lips only a breath away from his neck... From a simple
act of friendship it was getting more intimate.
He bit his lip to hold back the moan feeling Duo's butt grind against
his crotch. Oh, god!
Heero was starting to get the idea, that this plan was really really
