Chapter 29: The Contract

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

There are plenty of reasons for me to sign this paper, to ask my uncle and aunt sign it. Trowa draws a deep breath and gives me one more:

“Because the last thing you want is for me to get myself locked up with you.”

“You wouldn’t—!”

“My short list has a lot of names on it, Duo. I’ll check off however many I have to to make it happen.”

Chapter 28: Ernest

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

I drop my hands and remind him, “When were you going to tell me?”

Trowa draws a deep breath. Lets it out. Slowly.

“No,” I say. “Don’t you dare filter this shit now. Tell me all of it.”

He sighs. Nods. I’d never seen him look like this before: this weird blend of contrition and—what the hell is that—righteousness?

“Heero, after New Edwards.”

I blink, puzzled by his choice of words. What has that got to do with—?

Trowa continues, “He needed absolution.”

I freeze.

“He looked up the names of every close family member. I drove the truck.”

I nod as comprehension begins to seep in. “Are you offering to drive the truck again?”

“No,” he rasps sharply, looking me in the eye.

Chapter 27: Cathy's Brother

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“What’s the deal between you and Tro? I can tell something’s off.”

Cathy wraps an arm around her stomach. Uh-oh. This is not cool. If she’s not sick and the mention of circus shit hadn’t drawn a reaction, but she goes from zero-to-protective this fast…

I’m pretty sure I don’t wanna know, but I gotta ask anyway.

“It’s... it’s not...um. Is it, uh, a romantic problem?” I venture as diplomatically as I can. Hell, it’d been either this question or ask her when the baby is due.

Cathy’s gaze snaps up. “What?” she chokes, eyes wide.

My gaze drops to her belly, which still looks pretty flat under her blouse, and then lifts back to her face. I quirk a brow.

She coughs. Sputters. Snorts. And then she’s laughing so hard that tears of hysteric mirth are streaming down her face. Every head inside the tent turns.

“So that’s a ‘no’ to the tutu idea?” I say for the benefit of the bystanders. Several people roll their eyes. One of the guys I’ve worked on truck engines with volunteers, “I’d pay to see you in a tutu, Maxwell.”

“You’d pay, all right — with your life!” I holler back.

Things settle down. Cathy included. “Oh, Duo,” she breathes between the occasional gasping giggle. “Spoken like someone in love.”

Whoa. How did she—? Wait. “What? No! I mean, I... I just—um...”

Cradling her jaw in one palm, Cathy assures me in a confiding whisper, “It’s OK. What’s between me and Trowa isn’t romantic. He might love me, but he’s in love with you.”

Oh, shit. Someone else has noticed. So that means I’m not deluding myself. The shit I wouldn’t let him tell me when we’d been in space — the hints of more that I feel resonating in me — it’s all real. I just can’t even begin to deal with that.

UPDATE!!

OK, so confession time: I actually posted this chapter on AO3 a few days ago and I LJ Failed here.  I'm sorry.

I'm also being ridiculously bad at replying to comments.  I love the comments.  I love and adore ALL the comments and the amazing that they are.  RL is just not letting me be my best fangirl right now.  And maybe these blues that I just can't shake.  m( _ _ )m

Chapter 26: Mercenary Resolve

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

I’m dismayed to read that Kurt Franklin does indeed have close relatives. A few. One small family. I memorize their names, birth dates, locations, occupations.

With one well-timed, homemade car bomb, I could answer Duo’s question — when he asks if anyone exists to whom he owes the right of vengeance — I could answer very honestly, “No.”

Just that simply, Duo would be safe.

Chapter 25: Shuttle to the Circus

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“Jesus,” I grumble. “You make it sound like I was one step away from blowing my brains out.”

Trowa is silent. So am I.

I clear my throat. “C’mon. Gimme some credit. Getting jetisoned into space is totally the way to go.”

As soon as the words come out, I realize what I’ve said.

“Shit. I’m sorry. I’m a brainless moron.”

Trowa shudders visibly and — to hell with re-entry safety regulations — I slide my arm behind his shoulders.

“I still have nightmares about that,” he surprises me by admitting. “But not so much lately.”

“Yeah? Chewing on my hair helps?”

“It’s a decent lifeline.”

Chapter 24: God's Blessing

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

“Last chance,” he offers, waggling the sloshing liquor at me.

I grimace, lifting a hand in silent refusal. However, the contents of the bottle capture my attention. My eyes narrow as I measure the amount still remaining. The bottle is a little over half-full.

I stare at Duo. “How much of that did you drink?”

“None, today.”

I cut across his smirk with a gesture. “Not today. You know when.”

“Oh. Uh, I had a little.”

“A little,” I repeat, thinking of that Saturday night. Truth-or-and-drink. “You let me drink nearly half the bottle?”

“Um, I guess I did.”

I glare.

He shrugs helplessly. “What can I say? You were totally right. It tastes like shit.”

Chapter 23: A Date

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

“So, how’d I do?” he asks as we pass under a streetlamp.

“Hm?”

“Our date,” he clarifies.

I feel my lips stretch into a smile. “Imagination, check. Charm, check.”

“I think I’m forgetting something, though.”

I cannot fathom what that could possibly be. “It’ll come to you.”

Chapter 21: Not Unwanted

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

Eyeing his enthusiastic grin, I accuse, “You’d insist on going first into the home of an ax murderer, wouldn’t you?”

His grin is sudden, cocky, and intensely satisfying. “Hell, I just about crash-landed on a planet that’s covered — like 60% of its surface area covered — in water without knowing how to do more than the dead man’s float and pray.”

“God help us.”

Chapter 21: Not Unwanted

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

"Name one action I’ve taken that had pure intentions.”

“You bought me coffee last Sunday morning.”

He laughs out loud. If there had been any pigeons within earshot, they would have startled and taken flight. “Well, I guess a selfish, grudge-hoarding asshole like me has got to start somewhere.”

That can’t be how he sees himself. Can it?
