A.N.: Well, I've been meaning to write something with Heero and Relena -- so here it is. Basically I was up late at night listening to Selena's "Dreaming" song when I instantly thought of Heero and Relena and decided to write a songfic about it. It's short, hopefully sweet, and just plain enjoyable. So, yeah, nothing serious -- just plain fluff. Enjoy, and if you can't then hopefully you can just laugh at my pathetic attempt of a 1xR fic! XP

Disclaimer: Sadly, I do not own Gundam Wing or Selena's marvelous song, "Dreaming." I'm only borrowing them for a few minutes of entertainment.

Dreaming

Late at night when all the world is sleeping

I stay up and think of you

And I wish on a star

That somewhere you are thinking of me, too

Relena sighed softly as she shifted for the umpteenth time in bed. He was once again plaguing her thoughts and preventing her from having the peaceful sleep she so desperately needed. At first she had minded the intrusion in her thoughts, but now that she knew she wasn't going to be getting any sleep any time soon she decided to enjoy it quietly while looking out of her window at the night's sky. It was exceptionally beautiful and she instantly wondered if he was looking at it too, with thoughts of her plaguing his own mind.

She smiled sadly at the thought. Did he ever stop and think of her?

Relena slowly shook her head with a slight frown -- answering her own internal question.

Of course he wasn't thinking of her, he had better things to do with his free time, unlike herself. Sure, she was almost always busy, but every now and then someone would think of her well being and schedule some free time for her in between meetings and paperwork -- which she hated and planned to get rid of.

'Yeah, right.' Relena thought absently as she stared at the stars. 'You say that every time you think of him, but you never go through with it . . . You don't want to get rid of dreaming about him.'

Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight

Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Than here in my room

Dreaming about you and me

Hours slowly passed by as Relena continued to stare at the star's and moon, thoughts of him never leaving her conscience for a second. What was he doing at the very moment? Was he happy? . . .

She had always found herself wondering that every now and then, if only she knew if he was happy or not. Maybe that would put her mind a little bit more at ease and focused on other things at hand . . .

Slowly, her mind began to drift off into oblivion until she realized what time it was -- she had to be wide awake for her meeting tomorrow and staying up all night thinking about him would do her no good. Finally serious about her resolve she rolled over in bed and shut her eyes tightly. Unfortunately, this only managed to bring up his image, never leaving her eyes as if it had been scorched there.

She sighed softly and rolled back over, staring blankly at her bedroom ceiling. "Heero . . ." She whispered hoarsely as if she had been crying for days. "Wherever you are, I still love you, and nothing will ever change that."

Suddenly exhausted the Vice Foreign Minister slowly shut her eyes and welcomed the much needed slumber, unaware of a pair of intense prussian blue eyes watching her every move from outside her balcony.

Wonder if you ever see me

And I wonder if you know I'm there

If you looked in my eyes

Would you see what's inside?

Would you even care?

--The Next Day--

Relena smiled kindly at her aide as she dropped off some more paperwork on her desk and left. It was a little bit more hectic than expected, especially after having her meeting early in the morning, but it was nothing she couldn't handle. At least that's what she kept repeating to herself as she stared tiredly at the mounds of papers on top of her desk. Sometimes she just wished to have Heero by her side, he always somehow managed to give her the strength to go in life, and she wanted that strength to be by her side always.

She shook her head, "No," She thought out loud. "That's selfish. Heero is living his own life in peace, and he deserves it."

"As do you." A rough monotone voice said from across her office.

She looked up carefully and blinked. There was no mistake who it was, but yet it was hard to believe. Was her mind playing tricks on her sleep deprived eyes?

After a long moment of silence and staring he began to near her, taking slow steps, his intense gaze never leaving her own. "Relena."

"Heero." She found herself breathing out with a sudden smile.

I just wanna hold you close but so far

All I have are dreams of you

So I wait for the day

To have the courage to say

How much I love you

Yes, I do

It was just like old times and strangely she felt as if he had always been there for her, never straying far from her side.

Abruptly her smile faltered and she looked away, breaking her long stare with the man she loved and wished every day to see. Was she dreaming? What if she was still asleep in her room?

That would be a very cruel dream, but it's not like she had never had any of those before. Subconsciously she pinched her thigh under her desk, and at the sudden pain she blinked in surprise.

This wasn't a dream. He was really here, in her office, staring down at her as if he was trying to devour her with his eyes.

The mere thought alone sent shivers running down her spine. He seemed to have noticed as he got even closer to her desk, a small smile hiding underneath his tousled brown bangs.

'He hasn't changed a bit.' Relena noticed with another smile and now sparkling sky blue eyes.

Startling her out of her revere she suddenly felt a calloused hand on her cheek, she looked up only to find those same beautiful prussian blue eyes staring right back at her.

How many times had she dreamt of this moment with an aching heart right afterwards?

I'll be dreaming of you tonight

Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Than here in my room

Dreaming about you and me

"Heero, is it really you?" Relena managed to croak out after he reluctantly removed his warm hand from caressing her cheek.

With his eyes still alit with the same intensity as before his gaze slightly wavered until finally resting back at her eyes. He nodded curtly and Relena couldn't help but smile back in return.

The Heero in her dreams was always sensitive and loving, and even though she knew he was like that deep down inside he always made sure to never let it show, which was why if she didn't know before she knew now: This wasn't a dream.

Ahh ahh Corazon

I can't stop dreaming of you

No puedo dejar de pensar en ti

I can't stop dreaming

Como te nesecito.

I can't stop dreaming of you

Mi amor, como te extra├▒o...

Snapping herself out of her own thoughts Relena realized that this was her chance to tell him how she really felt. This was her chance to either get some closure or love in return. She couldn't blow it.

"Heero, I --" Relena began softly but was immediately cut off by Heero's hand in the air, silencing her without a word being needed.

"Be quiet." He whispered huskily and Relena obeyed, somewhat angrily. "Let me tell you what I came to say first. Then you can say whatever's on your mind."

'Heh, obviously it's you. What else could be on my mind?' Relena thought, growing a bit irritated with Heero, but determined not to let it show. Why spoil the moment she had longed for years to come by letting her womanly hormones take over?

He seemed to hesitate as Relena continued to stare at him, waiting for whatever was to come. 'He might as well say he's pregnant with Duo's baby.' She immediately froze after thinking that. 'Why did I just think of something like that? I think I've been hanging around Duo too much . . .'

". . . Relena."

Her name being softly spoken finally broke her out of her strange thoughts and back to Heero.

"Relena, were you listening?" Heero asked, quite flushed, his fists clenched at his sides.

Relena blinked and suddenly found her tile floor very interesting. "Um, no." She whispered quietly before looking back up. "I'm sorry, what did you say?"

Heero paused before grabbing her hand quite roughly, hauling her out of her seat and up against his hard body. The sudden body contact startled Relena as her eyes widened at the now fierce looking Heero. She was speechless and he relished it by smiling down at her tenderly, both of his arms now encircling her small waist.

"I love you, Relena."

Again, Relena blinked in astonishment. Heero having a baby was highly unlikely, but this was something she was definitely not expecting.

Heero loved her, and he was admitting it to her.

"Oh, Heero!" She found herself gushing out as she cupped his face lovingly in her hands. "I love you, too."

"Good." Heero replied with a larger smile and sparkling prussian blue eyes. Relena grew red at the sight, she had never seen Heero reveal so much emotion. "Now I can do this."

He dipped his head slowly and softly brushed his lips with her own -- the simple touch made her feel warm inside like never before.

Relena was so happy that while she and Heero continued to kiss in the middle of her office tears of joy began to roll down her soft cheeks.

She had never before felt so happy that she wasn't dreaming.

Late at night when all the world is sleeping

I stay up and think of you

And I still can't believe

That you came up to me and said "I love you"

I love you, too

--Next Morning--

Relena woke up with a start -- Heero was still beside her in bed. He hadn't left her like he promised he wouldn't. Her sweet dream could finally continue without any interruptions. She smiled contentedly.

"I'll never leave you, Relena." Heero whispered into her ear, as if he had know what she was thinking.

"I know, I know." She whispered back as she played with his unruly chocolate brown hair. "And I'll never leave you, Heero."

After some comfortable silence Heero finally sighed and nuzzled her neck with half-lidded eyes. "I'll be holding you to that.

"I wouldn't have it any other way."

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight

Till tomorrow and for all my life

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

Than here in my room

Dreaming with you endlessly

--Afterward: Years Later--

Words weren't always needed with Heero, but sometimes they sure would come in handy.

"Hey, Relena I've been meaning to ask you this for some time." Heero began with his eyebrows narrowed.

"What?" Relena asked sleepily as she tried to stifle a yawn.

"What was occupying your mind when you didn't hear me the first time I said I loved you?"

Relena froze. "Uh, nothing important."

"Relena." His tone was serious.

Relena sighed and blinked up at Heero. "I'll tell you if you promise not to get mad."

Heero's jaw clenched but he agreed anyways with the nod of his head.

"I was thinking about you having Duo's baby."

Heero blinked several times before shaking his head in slight amusement. "How?"

Relena frowned and crossed her arms. "I don't know myself. The idea just popped in my head for no reason and wouldn't leave. It's not like I wanted to think about it."

Heero chuckled lightly at his wife's crimson face and "explanation." She truly let her mind wander off when in thought and he loved her all the more for it.

That was his Relena and he wouldn't change her for the world.

"I love you, Heero." She whispered as she kissed his cheek with bright eyes he always loved to see.

"I love you too, Relena." He responded happily, bringing her to him with a grin.

His life had meaning now with Relena by his side.
