Don't Speak

Don't Speak

I do not own Gundam Wing or this song…thank you! Enjoy!

Hilde sat on her sofa, alone. Tapping her foot. She hasn't seen or heard from Duo in months.

You and me

We used to be together

Everyday together always

Why hasn't he called? Wouldn't he at least do that?

I really feel

I'm losing my best friend

I can't believe

This could be the end

"Silly American boy," she muttered, "I'm in love with an American boy."

It looks as though you're letting go

And if it's real

Well I don't want to know.

She heard the doorbell and she went up to answer. Low and behold, there was Shingami, the God of Death. The American boy who became her best friend. The boy she nearly lost her life for. He smiled at her, "Hilde…"

Don't speak

I know just what you're saying

So please stop explaining

Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Don't speak

I know what you're thinking

And I don't need your reasons

Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

She smiled back, surprised, "Duo…"

Our memories

They can be inviting

But some where all together

Mighty Frightening

"Hilde, I," he began, walking to her, "I need to tell you something."

"Oh shut up…don't say a thing," she muttered, tears filling up.

"Huh?" his smile vanished, "what'd I do?"

As we die, both you and I

With my head in my hands

I sit and cry.

Hilde walked into the room, her back facing Duo. Duo shut the door, "Hilde, what is it?"

"I know why you're here," she sniffed, "you…"

Don't speak

I know just what you're saying

So please stop explaining

Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Don't speak

I know what you're thinking

I don't need your reasons

Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Hilde found her ground and turned to look in the American's face, the face that used to put a smile on hers, "You don't love me, do you? And if you did, you don't anymore? Why else haven't I heard from you?!"

Duo took a step back in surprise, she never raised her voice to him like that, "What're talking about??"

It's all ending

I gotta stop pretending who we are..

You and me

I can see us dying…are we?

"Come on Hilde," Duo murmured, "I was just busy and I…"

"No, no, don't give me that!" she snapped. "Don't speak, don't say anything!"

Don't speak

I know just what you're saying

So please stop explaining

Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Don't speak

I know what you're thinking

I don't need your reasons

Don't tell me cause it hurts

Duo put his hands on her shoulders, shook her, "Hilde, listen to me! I love you! Okay? I just now got the courage to tell you."

"What?"

"Yeah, what kind of jerk do you take me for?" he demanded, "A lot has been going on with me. I wanted to be with you, really, I just couldn't get away. I wanted to be with you."

Hilde wanted to crawl underneath a rock. She groaned at her own thoughtlessness. "Oh, I just thought that…well, since you…"

"Hey, don't speak," Duo objected, putting a finger to her lips "I'm here now and nothing is going to change the way I feel about you. Come here." He drew her in his arms for her to stay.

She rubbed her hands all over his back. "Just don't scare me like that again. I thought you were killed or something."

He stepped back and tilted his head, "Hilde?"

"Yeah?"

"Shut up," and then he kissed her.
