A/N:: This fic is dedicated to my lil' sis, Mist-chan. I know she loves duo, so, I thought she would like a duo/mist fic. ^^ i hope you like it, mist. i sure will.
A young girl with pink hair touched with fire at the end walked along the abandoned colony that had just suffered it greatest defeat by the Earth's Sphere Alliance. Tears were flowing down her cheeks, making her emerald green eyes sparkle from them. Her parents were killed, leaving her all alone in the place, with no way to get off the colony. She was probably going to starve to death.
"STOP THAT BOY!!!"
She stopped, as she turned, a boy running away with his arms loaded with food. A long braid hung from his head, and his outfit was completely black. He was too busy sticking his tounge out at the men he just stole the food from to notice that he had just run into the young girl. He recovered quickly to find the young girl on the ground, groaning softly. He grabbed his bag of food, and pulled her up, once again running from the men that were chasing him. The girl nearly fell over to his quickened speed, but she just followed with no other option. As soon as they finally hid away from the men, they finally caught their breath. The girl wiped the sweat from her brow, as a piece of ham was brought by her face. He looked over, to see a pair of soft blue eyes shining into her green orbs.
"You look hungry, I don't mind sharing." He smiled.
A little amused smile appeared on her lips, as she took the ham into her hands, and began to eat it. It was so juicy and it was so delicious, a heavenly smile appeared as she finally satified her stomach. A laugh was heard, making a sweatdrop appear by her head. The boy was laughing...probably at her goofy smile.
"WHAT'S FUNNY!?" Her green eyes flamed.
"Sorry...never seen a look like that after eating a piece of ham." He chuckled a bit.
"I haven't eaten in days, and it tasted great, are you happy?" She pouted.
"...Ooookay, what's your name, anyway?"
"My name is Duo. I used to live around here, but look what those basterds did to this place. They even killed Sister Helen and Father Maxwell." Duo subconsiously fidgited with his braid.
"My parents were killed in that onslaught, I had no other family other than my parents." Mist chewed into a new piece of ham.
"Heh...we're both war orphans then, ne?"
The two simply sat there, eating their fill. Duo looked up in the sky, and sighed heavily, sitting up. Mist looked up at him, as he smiled down at her.
"There's a ship that's heading for a new colony, I was thinking of sneaking on, would you like to join me?"
"...I'll come, I have no reason to stay here, unless I wanna starve to death."
Duo lifted her to her feet, and pulled her in the direction of the space shuttles, ready to get off the colony of too many painful memories. Mist began to run forward, when Duo grabbed her, and pulled her back, as three shuttle men walked by, going right past the 12 and 11 year old. Duo look over at her.
"Another step, and you'd be in trouble, just follow and do everything I do, okay?" Duo sighed.
Duo peaked his head out, and walked over to the boxes, then signaled for Mist to follow him. She ran over, and hid with him, as a few of the hooks above them began to lift the boxes into the ship.
"Okay...we get inside the boxes, you first."
Duo lifted her up, as she pushed the lid away, and went inside. Duo jumped up, and shut the lid above them, just as the hook grabbed th ebox they were in, lifting the box. Suddenly, the box was knocked into something, making her fall into the young preteen's arms, rubbing her head.
"OW!" She thought to herself.
"Hey, watch it. You could hurt yourself, and that wouldn't be good." He had a firm grip on her shoulders.
"Okay...but you may let go of me now..." She blushed.
Duo let go quickly, letting her retreat to the other side of the box. She rubbed her arms, feeling a bit cold. Duo took notice to this, and crawled up to her, and laid his jacket over her, making her look over at him. He just smiled, and began to head out of the box.
"D-Duo, where are you going?"
"I'm getting us some food. You stay here, okay?"
Duo shut the lid on his way out, and his footsteps were heard until they were no longer even faint. Mist laid back, and finally went to sleep, her pink bangs hanging in her face. Her short locks barely grazed her shoulders, but it was beautiful color, along with the red at the tips. Suddenly, she heard a scream. She woke up, not knowing what time it was. She lifted the lid off, and looked outside, to see Duo in the hands of some of the men that worked on the shuttle. He turned to see her peering out of the box. He wasn't going to let her get caught as well.
"Mist, grab a space suit, and get out of here, you can still get to earth on a escape pod! Hurry!!" He cried.
Mist hand a tight grip on Duo's black jacket, as she ran off, one of the men racing after her. She turned sharply, and finally found the escape pod room. She shut the locked door, and headed over, as the man pounded on the door, the glass breaking at his punch. Mist slipped on the space suit, and climbed into the pod, pressing the quardinates to her destination.
"Pod direction, Earth. Going at 50 miles per hour, eject now!" Mist pressed the black button.
Two claws came out of the top, and lifted her pod up, and began to decend down to open space, as the man finally opened the door. It was too late, the pod had already taken off, and by the time they got upstairs, she'd already be at Earth. He sighed in annoyance, and headed off to deal with the boy, and consult Dr. G.
