A collection of short stories about Heero and Duo getting together. I've posted them all as separate stories because they can all be read as short oneshots but there is connection between the stories so I've numbered them in chronological order.

Third in the Ficlet Arc.

Pairing: Dreaming of 1+2

Warnings: none.

Duo's POV.

3. Crying happy faces

Everytime I make fun of you, I'm actually saying "you look good". "You look good in those spandex shorts, you look good with that frown, you look good even with those eyebrows, so damn good."

Everytime I shove you around, I'm actually saying "hold my hand". "Hold my hand and walk down the street with me, let them stare, let them point, it doesn't matter, as long as we hold hands."

Everytime I send you a grin, I'm actually saying "thanks". "Thanks for being there, thanks for being the strong one, thanks for helping me to my feet."

Everytime I smirk your way, I'm actually saying "I know". "I know what you're going through, I understand, it's okay. It's gonna be okay."

Everytime I smile at you I'm actually saying "I love you". "I love for who you are and together with you I want to mend our broken hearts and glue them together as one, forever."

And everytime, I cry, for I never dare actually tell you.

But you don't get to see tears. All you get to see are happy faces.

Love,

Crimson.
