Duo pleaded with Wufei, his hands bunching in Wufei’s normally pristine white clothes. He told him not to do this, begged him not to do this. They could get this guy some other way. This was suicide. He'd be out-numbered and would get himself killed, Duo just knew it! He had a bad feeling about this! But Wufei just smiled, kissed Duo's forehead and said he'd be out of the complex in a few moments. It was, after all, just a negotiation.


Moments later Duo watched the screens infront of him in growing terror as the hidden camera's picked up two figures closing in behind Wufei as he tried to negotiate with a rather regal looking man sitting behind a large desk. A scream ripped itself from Duo's chest as he watched terror stricken as the bullets pounded into Wufei's body. Blood blossomed over the other's traditional Chinese white clothing, a stark contrast of brilliant red and white. The braided ex-Gundam pilot thrashed and fought against the strong arms that suddenly held him in place, not letting him out of the hidden surveillance room they'd set up.Duo cursed Trowa and everything the taller brunette loved and held dear untill he was to exhausted to fight anymore.


He screamed, and cried his rage, hurt, and anger to the skies.


Duo woke up, the scream strangled in his throat. Tears were already streaking his face, and he curled in on himself, hugging the cold pillow, that had long ago lost Wufei's ever-so-slightly-musky scent, tightly to his chest. 


            <Give me a reason to believe that you're gone>

            <I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong>

            <Moonlight on the soft brown earth>

            <It leads me to where you lay>

            <They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home>


They'd finally released Duo to go home earlier that day. He'd finally been able to sleep through a few nights, had relented to Quatre and eaten, had agreed to not try and kill himself. They'd released him, under the coniditon that he was supposed to be under careful observation. But as he slipped out the bedroom window, his gun, equiped with a silencer and carefully concealed, he wanted to laugh. Did Une really think that rookie Preventer could keep him under tabs?


No one could stop Shinigami.


            <<I will stay forever here with you>>

            <<My love>>

            <<The softly spoken words you gave me>>

            <<Even in death our love goes on>>


Duo knelt in the still fresh dirt, gun digging into his side, and traced his fingers over the English and Chinese characters that declared who was in the ground below him. Tears streaked his face, glinting in the moon light. He dipped his head praying to a God he'd long ago forsaken and kissed the tombstone. "Rest now, my love."


            <Some say I'm crazy for my love, Oh my love>

            <But no bonds can hold me from your side, Oh my love>

            <They don't know you can't leave me>

            <They don't hear you singing to me>


Duo stood in the shadows and faced the complex. He could remember in vivid detail every route they'd plotted into and out of the place. He scanned the area and slipped further into the shadows and snuck his way in.



            <<I will stay forever here with you>>

            <<My love>>

            <<The softly spoken words you gave me>>

            <<Even in death our love goes on>>


Duo smiled darkly as the silenced gun popped twice and the two guards crumbled to the ground, blood pooling under their heads. In the back of his mind he whooped and hollared, congratulating himself for the two head shots in a row, gloating over how it would raise his online standing, and could hear Wufei chuckling softly behind as he continued to read.


            <And I can't love you anymore than I do>


Duo stepped over the bodies, and pushed open the door to the main office. The man sitting behind the large desk looked up confused and shocked that someone was in his office so late at night. "Who the fuck are you? And how the fuck did you get in here?"


One of the man's hands disappeared under the desk and suddenly a siren wailed throughout the complex.


"I'm Death." Duo stated simply, his head tilting to the side as if it should have been obvious. "you took something from me. I want it back." He lifted his gun, and before the man could so much as react the gun popped quietly and blood begun to trickle into his eyes.


            <<I will stay forever here with you>>

            <<My love>>

            <<The softly spoken words you gave me>>

            <<Even in death our love goes on>>


Violet eyes burned, tears streamed down his face as he stood over the corpse. "You took Wufei from me. I want him back."


            <And I can't love you, anymore than I do>


Duo heard the pounding footsteps as guards poured into the area, alerted by the sirens.


He had what he wanted. The shouts and screams of guards that were streaming into the room were far away, all he could hear was Wufei whispering in his ear, calling him home. Duo closed his eyes, as guards poured around him, guns pointed.


            <People die, but real love is forever.>


Trowa held onto Quatre as the smaller blonde sniffled, renewed tears streaming down his cheeks as he placed a single red rose on each of the two graves. The grass had grown over them both, and both had several flowers placed over them. As Quatre straightened and cast tear filled eyes at Trowa, he whispered, "It should have been their first Valentines Day together..."
