Quatre ran a hand threw his hair, he was alittle nervous. He remembered Minako, she was beautiful. And if she was beautiful, her friends woudln't be hideous. Beautiful women made him have butterflies. He could never talk around them. He could only maybe say 'hi', but not without a blush rising to his cheeks. But that was it, after that it was all stutters and more blushing, and maybe the worst, fidgeting.
Duo looked over at him calmly. Duo was a ladies man, although his charms didn't quiet work with Minako. Quatre knew that much. Duo wasn't playing the game this time, it was Minako who was playing the game. That made him more nervous! What if he did something tonight that he would later regret?
"Stop worrying, Q-man!" Duo said, laughing and patting his back a little.
"I..I can't s-stop.." Quatre stuttered. Even at the thought of beautiful women he was a reck. How was he going to pull tonight?
"They're just girls, Q-man! Like your sisters, but a lot finer," Duo licked his lips and smiled.
"Hey!" Quatre retorted.
"You should be good around women, Q-man. You have so many sisters and all," Duo grumbled. "Just think of these girls as your sisters!"
"As...my sisters?" Quatre questioned, just to make sure he heard Duo correctly.
Duo nodded his response. "Just like your sisters, bud! I know you can do it!"
"I..I can try..." Quatre shrugged.
Quatre sighed and looked over at Heero. Tonight would definitly be a long night, unless these three women would provide more than just company.
"Duo!" a voice rang out. The beautiful blonde smiled and waved at Duo and his friends.
Duo said nothing in response, he only smiled, a little dazed. Minako was wearing beautiful pale orange velvetine dress that hung almost down to her knees. The dress was tight around the waist. A band of light pale orange nearly see-through material stretch around her uppermost torso. In the middle is where the V neck of her dress ended. Her straps were tiny black beads woven in rows of two, as was the middle of the belt-like material that went around her upper torso.
Quatre almost gazed at Minako longingly, taking in her long blonde hair, curled at the end in ringlets, to her amazing blue eyes, to her delicately feet strapped into orange stilettos.
Quatre stop staring, looking at Duo who was still staring impolitely. He took a glimpse at Heero, who amazingly was also looking at Minako.
"I want you to meet my friends. Well, Duo, you've met both Ami and Rei, but Quatre hasn't," Minako's voice almost sang.
Quatre smiled. "Hey Minako."
"Good evening, Quatre!" Minako greeted back, smiling deviously.
Minako pointed to the raven-haired girl to her left, Hino Rei. Her long hair flowed gracefully down to her waist, and was wavy. She wore a black strapless, tight dress that stopped short of her knees and showed ample cleavledge. A single black neckless was hung around her neck. Her skin was pale and beautiful, and her legs were long and toned with muscles, as were her beautiful exposed arms. Her eyes, a voilet color, danced like fire in the lights.
"Hello Rei," Quatre said, almost croking, but managing to get her name out. She was beautiful, equally as beautiful as Minako. Her personality, though, was more fiery and more mature than Minako's was.
Rei only nodded her head.
"Rei, that's Quatre. He was bartending, and doing a great job, too," Minako added shamelessly.
Minako moved on to her friend on the right. Her short blue hair and deep crystal blue intriged Quatre.
"This is Ami," Minako said, smiling more.
Ami wore a beautiful black dress. The patterns on the dress were floral and reminded him a lot of kimono designs with yellow, purple, green, and blue. Her dress hung in a low V neck, a hem with the same designs but in red, accentuating her cleavledge. The dress was tight around her slim waist and hung closely to her trim figure and toned legs. The bottom, like Rei and Minako's dresses, stopped just short of her knees. The sleeves of her dress went about to her elbows, then flared out in lace to her waist . A gold neckless hung around her neck.
Again, Duo was in awe. These three women were equally beautiful, but in different ways. Minako was happy, always smiling and brilliant. She radiated happiness and love, she shined. Rei was fiery and hot tempered, leaving much to the imagination. She was mysterious, and all-knowing. Ami was different. She was calm, and well-kept together. She was silent, and she was amazing. Her mind was marvelous, anyone could tell she was more than a mere genius.
"Where have you three been my whole life..." Duo whispered quietly.
"Tokyo!" Minako answered, smiling, her odd humor again shining. "Anyways, who are you're friends, dear Duo?"
"You already know Quatre," Duo said pointing to the shy blonde. "He's shy, and very rich. He's smart, too."
Quatre felt a blush rising on his cheeks and he grimaced at himself.
"That's Heero. He's more the strong, silent types...you know," Duo smiled playfully. "He can answer almost any question with one word."
"Hn," Heero retorted silently.
"Now, ladies!" Duo said, putting his arms out. "Shall we continue on our ways?"
"Ah, fuck!" Minako cursed. "I forgot something on my bed. You guys can head off! I'll catch up!"
"Hn," Heero said, a look of annoyance on his face.
"Alright," Duo said, waving her off as Ami and Rei took his open arms.
"Here, why don't I wait for her?" Quatre asked quietly.
"No, it's okay, enjoy yourself," Heero said calmly, remaining sitting in the comfortable leather chairs in the lounge of the hotel.
Quatre looked almost taken aback. "Are you sure, Heero?"
"Alright..." Quatre said. Quatre almost smiled his thanks, but quickly left instead as Rei nearly pushed him out the door.
"What'd Minako forget?" Duo asked, arm in arm with Ami.
"I don't know, probably her make-up. That girl ALWAYS forgets something!" Rei said grumpily, walking next to Quatre.
Ami giggled, remembering earlier this week. "Didn't Minako forget half of she was supposed to pack?"
"YES!" Rei sneered. "She ended up buying shampoo, conditioner, a brush, toothpaste, a toothbrush, CDs and a CD player, as well as a radio and an alarm clock. She bought a couple books too, the reason why is beyond comprehension!"
Duo, Quatre and Ami laughed.
"Oh, Rei, you're so mean to her. It's not like she tries to forget..." Ami smiled.
"She didn't bring any clothes so she forced herself to go shopping. Now, I think she did THAT one on purpose," Rei retorted, smirking.
Ami giggled again. "Yes, well, you know Minako. She had five bags without any clothes, so she just decided to not back any. She has the money."
"Yeah, since her parents are dead and all..." Rei inclinded.
"I feel sorry for her..." Quatre interjected. "I mean...her parents did die and all..."
"No, don't feel sorry for her. She's was so damn glad they died. They were hording all of her money. She used to be this actress in England, she was Sailor V. All the money she earned from Sailor V, her parents embezzled," Rei explained. "They wouldn't give Minako anything. Plus, her step-mother beat her half-to-death once. That's when she moved in with me."
Quatre and Duo looked at her in awe.
"Rei..." Ami said, a little shyly.
"Oops!" Rei smiled almost dissmissivly. "I wasn't supposed to tell anyone that...but I think I can trust you two!"
Duo smiled. "The secret is safe with us, right Q-man?"
Quatre nodded and smiled. "I guess if I was in her shoes, I'd be happy to..."
"Well, she's getting all of her parent's money...which is her money," Ami smiled. "Everything is going really good for her right now. I'm very happy for her."
Duo looked at Ami questioningly.
"Oh! You don't know, do you?" Ami said, surprised.
"No...we don't," Duo said.
"Her boyfriend for a long time just proposed to her," Rei explained. "Plus, since she got some money from a lawsuit against her parents, she hired an agent and she's beginning to model and act again."
"Wow, she's going to be busy, huh?" Duo asked.
"Yeah...I never thought of that," Rei sighed.
"She'll still have time for you two, I'm sure," Quatre smiled kindly.
Minako rushed out of the elevator, purse in hand. "Oh! You waited for me?"
"Hn," Heero replied.
Minako smiled. "I never caught your name..."
"It wasn't given," Heero responded, standing up.
Minako's smile almost vanished. "Alright then."
Minako continued walking, walking past him and towards the door. She stopped at the doors and turned around, her face completely serious. "Are you coming?"
Heero made his way towards the door, following Minako's lead.
"Do you know where they left to?" she asked, standing under cover as it poured.
"No," Heero said back.
"Fuck..." Minako cursed. "Now I'm not going to have ANY fun at all."
Heero turned away from her, trying to forget what she said.
"I think they went that way," Heero pointed to the limo that had started moving.
"Well, I guess we're going to either have to wait for them, call for another limo, although we don't know where to go...or just stay here," Minako mouthed the options.
She folded her arms, waiting for him to make the decision.
Heero said nothing, watching the limo speed off into the traffic.
"Alright, Mr," Minako nearly yelled at him. Heero turned his head to glare at her. "I had a bet, and I won, damnit. I even beat you. So I deserve a nice night out. I know you don't want to be stuck with me, the ditzy blonde but I don't give a fuck, alright!"
Heero continued staring.
"So either you go back to wherever you're from and I can go back to the hotel and have more fun than I'd ever have with a dumbass like you. OR, you can treat me to dinner and you can find out what it means to have fun for once!" she took a breath. "Either way is fine with me. If you can say at least three words to answer my fucking question, then do so now before I go."
Heero continued to stare at her. He sighed and started walking towards the closest diner.
Her eyes narrowed as she waited for a response, even if she knew what decision he had made, she wanted to hear those three words.
"Dinner," he responded, turning around and wating for her this time. Then he added, "Heero......Yuy."
She frowned, walking beside him. "It's nice to meet you, Heero Yuy..."
