The year is AC 198, two years since Earth and its colonies once again are at peace and all mobile suits, including the Gundams, have forever been destroyed. The ESUN has gained new hope for a pacifistic universe, but still some are unsatisfied with the proceedings, hiding out of the governments watchful eyes and attempting to create their own version of peace: immortality.
The rebel colony L5-A0207, the sister colony to L5-A0206, the former home of the Long Clan, was largely forgotten amongst the shadows of the ESUN's large existence. It became a perfect sanctum to experiment away from prying eyes, doubtful executives, and panicking peacemakers. Even the highly praised Preventers didn't bother to keep this particular colony on their radar.
Filled with scientists and philosophers deemed mad by modern societies, L5-A0207 slowly became a ticking time bomb sure to catch the ESUN's attention sooner or later...unfortunately for a newly rebuilt, still unstable society it would be the former.
AC 198. 3. July
0100 hours [1:00 am]
The silence between the two men sitting a foot apart in a military grade SUV across the street from the Vice Foreign Minister's hotel was undeniably thick.
Both shadowy forms drew breath simultaneously. One soft, tense, and slightly annoyed, the other prominent, anxious, and slightly obnoxious. Despite the heavy silence and erratically different breathing styles the air between them is surprisingly comfortable.
"I hate stakeouts." Duo Maxwell slumped back against his leather seat and arched his back until his vertebrae popped. He peeked over at the man sitting next to him, but didn't receive a response, only steely blue eyes. Unfazed he stretched his gangly arms in front of him toward the tinted windshield. "I mean technically this isn't a stakeout. But still...boring as hell."
Duo turned his body and brought a bony knee upwards to rest his chin on and stared at his Preventer partner. "Don't tell me you consider this satisfying work, Heero."
Heero Yuy turned only his neck and head to face Duo with a sideways look. He took in the young man's lax appearance and glowing violet eyes, always amazed that the man never truly grew up, but rather seemed to forever stay a proverbial teenage vagabond. "This is my-our-assignment."
Duo shrugged and grinned roguishly. "Not like we ain't allowed to complain though. It's not like Une's here listening to our every word."
Heero gave him a thin lipped look that proved to say "valid point," but still kept his words to himself. Both young men had been with the Preventers now for a little over two years, attached at the hip, but the oddest couple because no one knew for sure if that's what they were exactly. And no one dared to ask for fear of their life. Neither man minded though, Heero enjoying the seclusion it offered him and Duo because he liked the idea of being an enigma and keeping his friends and coworkers guessing. As well it also afforded them the option of working full time together without any questions.
Duo's smirking was interrupted by his radio, a chipper, female voice ringing over the small speaker. "How's it going you two?"
"Fine. Everything going good in your nice, comfy hotel room Hild?" Duo replied with mock scorn.
"Hey, it's not my fault that Relena can't have a personal, full time, male body guard, is it now?" Hilde Schbeiker had joined the Preventers after Relena contacted her in need of more estrogen on her body guard team.
"Yeah, yeah." Heero gave Duo a questioning look and so he asked, "The Princess alright?"
"Relena's fine, fell asleep fast. Long boring conferences and speeches will do that to ya!" Duo could picture Hilde's petite, smiling face and the seven empty styrofoam coffee cups laying on the table in front of her.
"Alright. Thanks for the update Hild."
"Yeah. Try not to fall asleep on the job guys!" she giggled. "Over and out!"
"Roger that. Over and out." Duo rolled his eyes affectionately. Ever since they'd become team members through the Preventers Hilde had been like a sister to him and he played the protective older brother part to a T. Even Heero, who never thought the word" affection" could ever show up in his emotional vocabulary, felt kindly towards the only female Preventer on Relena's personal staff.
Heero sighed and blinked. "I'm going to do a walk around."
"M'kay." Duo stifled a yawn. "Be safe." It was something Duo always said when the two parted, even though he knew well enough that Heero Yuy could take care of himself. It was just old habit.
Heero gave the braided man an almost discernible smile before exiting the vehicle into the colony's artificial night air.
The hotel grounds were protected by an eight foot tall, rod iron fence that, in Heero's opinion, afforded absolutely zero security. Every ten yards held a dimly glowing street lamp, but in between the lights the night surrounding him was completely black. People in the colonies didn't go out at one in the morning so there was no need to light every inch of sidewalk.
Heero ambled along slowly; a walk around was not necessarily needed, but it was better than sitting listening to Duo complain. He didn't mind Duo so much as he minded Duo's big mouth.
A tree branch's leaves rustled above and Heero stopped in his tracks. On earth he would have assumed it was a light breeze, but on the colonies there was no such thing as wind. Heero's eyes glinted as he glanced upwards to find nothing out of the ordinary. He let out the breath he had been impulsively holding and took another step forward.
Ice cold fingers brushed against his neck and Heero's own digits shot to his gun. The frigid fingers turned into multiple pairs of hands grabbing at him. Heero was lighting quick, but they were quicker. His gun was pulled from his grasp effortlessly while his radio was smashed to bits by a strong fist.
"What!-" His voice was silenced by a choking arm around his throat. His muscular body felt like rubber compared to his granite like attackers. Never had Heero Yuy been subdued so quickly in a struggle with no weapons.
"Hey! Heero!" Duo's voice echoed out from down the street, but he wasn't visible through the dark night. He must have heard the static as Heero's radio was destroyed and came looking for him.
Heero attempted to call out to his partner but an icy hand clamped over his mouth as he was helplessly dragged backwards by his unknown assailants. He wasn't sure where he was being taken, but he was determined not to find out. Heero braced himself and tried to struggle, attempting to throw his elbow backwards with all of his body weight.
His bone throbbed all the way to his shoulder; nothing seemed to divert the rock solid masses hauling him along with them like a rag doll.
"Heero! Stop messing around man!" Duo's comment was farther away this time and sounded more anxious than amused.
Never in his life had Heero felt fear like this tingle down his spine. As he began to struggle more the attackers grips grew tighter, nearly cutting off his air supply. "You don't want to die prematurely do you?" The velvety voice slithered into his mind sending goose bumps down his skin.
With one last burst of strength Heero thrust his head backwards, attempting to make contact with one of their foreheads, but his sorry attempt at self preservation was met with a pitiful laugh.
Still being easily pulled along in the shadows, avoiding any spec of light around, Heero's left forearm was grabbed and twisted maliciously behind his back. "Fighting back doesn't work with us." His bone snapped effortlessly in the man's cool grasp.
Heero felt a scream rise in his throat, but was unable to release it. He had broken more bones than he could count, but this was different, this was without justification, without need. The pain radiated through his weakening body, his air intake still slow due to intense grips.
Heero's eyes narrowed in confusion. Who were these men...these stronger than average beings? And what did they want with him?
"Now then, would you like this all to be over?" The figure who had just casually broken his arm cooed into his ear. Heero was losing consciousness quickly, his vision blurred as the men spun his face towards theirs, loosening their hold on his body, his knees buckled when he met their glowing eyes and paper pale skin.
"Who..." but Heero couldn't get the question out through his trembling lips.
The two men took advantage of his feeble state. Quickly one lowered Heero against his body while the other bent his head back exposing his neck to their preying eyes.
Heero felt a piercing set of fangs dig deep into his soft flesh and then...nothing.
