This is my first fanfic of any sort, so bear with me. This fanfic is based on a dream I had a while back. BTW, I know that a certian person is not a girl, he was in my dream. tho'. So I hope you enjoy the story, and review if you like it.
Disclaimer: I do not own Gundam Wing. I do own Duo, tho'. He's tied up in my basement, shhh, don't tell anyone. :P
We both crouched next to a tree. I could feel the sketchbook I was holding pressed against my body and hear his breath from beside me. The forest edge stretched far to either side and in front of us was a great plain that stretched forever.
"This doesn't look so good." Heero finally spoke from beside me. He was staring out at the small cottage that was a hundred yards or so from us.
The cottage was small, three or four rooms at most. In front there was a small fire that was sending a thin plume of smoke into the air.
"You don't think she'll help?"
Heero nodded towards the cottage instead of answering. A tall, Asian woman stepped out of the cottage. Her should length hair was pulled into a short ponytail and she carried a baby in her arms.
Heero sighed heavily, "Can't ask her while she has a baby."
I nodded in agreement and we turned to leave. I wasn't paying too close attention, but I saw Heero stiffen and I froze as well. Now I could hear the sound of men working their way towards us.
"Run," Heero hissed. "Go, run, get up a tree!"
My frozen mind didn't register anything past, "Run," and I did. I felt the sketchbook fall out of my numb hands as I ran past the trees and around a corner. In front of me I saw a wooden fence around someone's backyard. I vaulted the fence and lay in the grass.
A vague thought passed through my head that I ought to move closer to the fence. I was just about to move when the two men's voices became clear.
"I saw her run this way. I'm sure of it."
"Well, go look over there, then."
I lay as still as possible in the grass, praying the man in the military uniform would leave. I closed my eyes in fear as he leaned on the fence. Maybe he won't see me. Please, no, don't see me. The man glanced around and my heart stopped as his gaze fell on me.
"Hey! She's over here!" The man snapped into a standing position and called over his shoulder. His friend was by his side in seconds.
I rose slowly to my knees, my hands in the air as the second man leveled a small crossbow at me.
"Please, don't. Don't shoot."
The man smirked as he pulled the trigger.
"Heero, help me!"
The arrow bit into my right shoulder and the world faded to black.
