Special Note: Dedicated to darkneko666 and Demonskid, this was a request to me. Hope you both like it!

Warnings: Yaoi, lemon, language, angst-ish, MPreg (sort of, probably not what you're expecting), demons

Author's Note: Even if you don't like MPreg, give this a chance. Like everything I write, it's not a typical plot device. This story won't be updated very regularly, because I'm trying to finish In My Master's Arms before the end of my life, lol. But I wanted you two to know I'm working on it.


Prologue

"Heero! Heero, stop! We can't keep going like this!"

"Shut up, Quatre."

"You're not the one feeling the pain!"

Tormented cobalt eyes flashed to meet blazing aqua as the taller, slightly older youth finally stopped his mad, headlong dash. For several moments the Creator's mouth worked, but no sound issued forth. Finally, the Enchanter took a step forward and gripped his arm.

"You're no use to Duo like this."

"I can't help it," Heero all but whispered. "I can't bear the thought of that demon having any sort of hold on him."

"I know," Quatre soothed. "None of us can. But you couldn't take him on right now if you wanted to. Even if you got to the Gate, what would you do? Azrong would just torture you with his predictions of Duo's suffering. You should be with him right now. Not way out here where you can't hold him. Duo will give birth in just a few days. You should be with him."

Heero closed his eyes. "I can't seal the baby," he hissed, feeling as though that condemned him. "It won't be a full-blooded demon. Azrong was right. There's nothing I can do."

Quatre grabbed both his upper arms and shook. "Yes, there is. Be with Duo right now. When the baby is born, we can sever its link to Azrong. He won't be able to reach it. In order to do that, I'll need you there, Heero."

Drawing in a slow, deep breath that burned his lungs, Heero finally gave in and nodded. "I'll return. I should be with Duo now." He started back down the mountain. He stopped one last time, looking over his shoulder.

"Heero?"

"I'm going to kill him, Quatre. I don't care what it does to this world."

He felt more than heard the sigh. "I know."
