Chapter 3: An Event
The evening had gone on well into the early morning. It
wasn't until 2:30 that Heero looked over at Relena and noticed her eye-lids
were fighting to stay open. He stood and
walked around the now almost empty table over to Relena.
"Come on, I'll take you home." Relena looked up at him.
"I don't want to make you go out of your way."
"Like I'm going to let you take a cab." He offered his
hand and Relena took it to tired to argue. He walked over to Duo and Hilde
who were currently dancing, both half
"I'm taking Relena home." He turned to Relena and led her out of the club.
They rode in silence, every now and then Relena would look over to Heero or Heero at Relena. Then if they were caught they would turn their heads to look straight ahead.
Relena looked at the small control panel in between their
two seats. It had the controls to move both their seats forward, backward,
up and down. She reached her hand
down and pushed the button backwards. To Heero's surprise his seat began to move. He looked at Relena who was lightly laughing. He just raised his eyebrow, moved
her hand away from the controls and fixed his seat back. He hesitated before moving his hand over to the controls to Relena's seat. He moved the lever that tilted her
seat back into the laying position.
Relena let out a startled scream as she fell backwards.
As she reached to fix her seat controller, after giving Heero a glare,
but found that he just grabbed her hand and
shook his head. This confused her. 'What are you thinking, Heero?' Her question was answered as he pushed a button that lowered the top to the convertible. She felt the
breeze run over her giving her the chills.
"Heero it's freezing!" She was met with Heero's jacket. Which she covered herself with immediately.
"Hn?" He than pointed up. When Relena looked up she saw the sky was covered with an endless blanket of stars. She smiled. "Wow."
As Heero's car pulled up the driveway to the Peacecraft
mansion, Heero looked over at Relena who was now asleep. He smiled. 'Did
I just smile? What's wrong with
me?' He had put the top back on soon after she fell asleep. To make sure that she didn't get too cold. 'Can't have her getting sick now, can I?'
The car came to a stop and Heero got out of the car and
walked around to Relena's side door he opened it and as carefully as he
could, so as not to wake her, he lifted her out of the
seat and carried her inside the house and up to her room. Heero placed her on her bed and brushed the strand of loose hair out of her face. He didn't notice his arms still
raped around her, as he was captivated by her eyes as they fluttered open. She gasped to find Heero so close to her. She started to feel him pull away, she reached up with
her hand and grabbed his. She leaned up and captured his lips with hers. She pulled him down so her head rested on the pillow. He crawled over her body and ran his
hands down her sides, giving her shivers up and down her back.
Heero woke up early the next morning. He looked around
the unfamiliar room. Moving his head over to the side he saw her fast asleep.
She looked like an angle. The
early sunlight danced across the bare skin of her body and face. He turned away, 'What did I do?' He quickly got out of the bed making sure not to wake her up. He got
dressed and left. It would be only a few hours until he would see her again. He needed time to think.
She woke up to find an empty bed. 'Was it just a dream?
Some wonderful dream? No, it wasn't.'
