Holy crap on a cracker! Tomorrow is Christmas eve?? How? HOW?! Winding out this little road trip with thanks to Googlemaps and Yahoo (things to see in Denver!) and hope you were at least a little bit entertained by the lameness of it all...

Heero, I am so very sorry…

I had no idea that weather could come up that fast…

I didn’t mean for us to spend our last afternoon of vacation in the emergency room…

And I’m really sorry you’re going to have to do all the driving on the way back…

Just… you know… really sorry.

Are you done now?

Uh… pretty much. I think I covered everything.

Ok, good. Because that is the last time I want to hear the word ‘sorry’ on this trip.


Last. Time.

Uh… I…. uh… I mean…

We were both caught by surprise by the storm. Hell, the guy at the rental place was caught by surprise. How was that your fault?

Well, if I hadn’t wanted to do so many things on the way out here…

But those things were fun. Well… mostly. And we certainly weren’t going to spend the entire two weeks hang gliding.

But I should have made it a priority…

Maxwell. Enough. It was not your fault we got our asses blown out of the sky. It is not your fault you broke your damn leg. The weather is not your freaking fault. This bizarre guilt complex thing you have going on is not attractive.

I just wanted you to have a good time.

I had a good time. Well, in between the dysentery, the gun shots, and the broken bones parts.

Really? You aren’t just saying that?

Really. We saw some beautiful parts of the country, we did some new things, and met new people, and it was kind of a refreshing change of pace.

I’m glad I didn’t spoil it.

You did not spoil anything. The things that went wrong were not your fault. Well… maybe that exotic food sampler platter, but there was more good than bad.

Just next year? I’m going to handle the itinerary.

What!? I mean… uhm… sure, if… you know… you want.

And next time we’re taking my car because the suspension in this jeep sucks.


Maybe we’ll head south; do the coast or something.

What are you grinning at? Your meds kicking in?

Yeah… meds. Sure. We can go with that…

What? I didn’t catch that…

Just sayin’ the coast sounds cool. You know, next year and all.

Yes! Next year, the coast! That sounds great! I think Duo is not sorry at all! Great story, thank you for sharing it with us.XD

Oh, Heero, I just don't know... Well, I guess this is the start of a beautiful friendship (or more, right, Duo?) And yeah, the coast sounds wonderful.

I know, how did the month go this fast. At least I only work 5 hours tomorrow and then I off until Sun.!

And yes, I have been totally entertained by all of this!

Oh, they're going to get together eventually, but these two just seem to be taking their own sweet time... :D

Well, they haven't figured out they're more than friends yet, but at least they've clued in to the fact that they have fun together!

But I think they're both on the same page that they WANT to be more than friends... but aren't sure about the other one... :D

This has been such a sweet road trip! Thanks for the annual treat!

Sorry I haven't been around more, but it's a horribly busy year. After surviving many rounds of layoffs, my contract at Semi-Benevolent Big Oil is finally coming to an end after 8.5 years, and I'll be a full-time fiction writer as of January 1. I'm both excited and terrified.

I would be terrified. O_O Man, that would suck after that long. I will keep my fingers crossed that the switch is smooth and goes well and there are no regrets!

I could see this day coming, so I've managed to save up a bit of money, and I've also spent the past eighteen months writing romances like crazy and publishing them on Amazon.

This year, I earned a nice sum, not enough to live on yet, but very encouraging. I'm really going to have to learn how to do effective book promotions, though...

I just love when Heero gets all dominant and protective. And of course when Duo gets that knowing little grin. Maybe a few more years....
Lovely, lovely story.

Ah, the insinuation of old acquaintances being forgotten in this peapod! Wonder if they'll still be sleeping in separate bed by then? lol I'm so excited because the girl child has company coming and has baked like...everything under the sun to entertain them with tomorrow, but now I can sleep because all is right in the GW universe *g* Happy Christmas Eve!

so while they were in the er waiting and waiting and waiting, d'ya think that, after a few hours of basic cable commercials, duo quietly leaned towards heero and asked out of the corner of his mouth, "do you ever wonder what it'd be like for dr. drew and anderson cooper to get it on?"

Basic cable commercials? All I ever get is 'The View' or the Ellen show. o_O

well... the best entertainment i've ever gotten in a hospital was when that one guy escaped from the psych ward, and i got to watch an army of nurses attack him. EPIC. SO, SO EPIC.

Maybe if I start earlier next year, I can manage more than half baked dialogue fics...

Does this mean that next year we'll get to see Heero's version of a road trip for Christmas? *looks hopeful* I can't decide if Duo apologizing so much is a Catholic thing (which I know from personal experience) or if he's been hanging around Quatre too long. :-) Either way, this was a very fun story. Thank you for posting it!

I think Duo was just desperate to make sure Heero didn't have a suck time and regret going along. ^^;
Next year I will strive to manage more than just dialogue fics... *she says for the hundredth year in a row*

Annnnd the switch is flipped. ^__^ My, Duo, what a bright light. The better to see what's right in front of you. *snicker*

(the distraction worked! internet is still up!)

Even a story that's lame by your standard is still a treat to your many fanfiction friends. Thanks for making the last couple of hectic days a bit brighter. A slow burn romance is actually perfect this time of year. Merry Christmas!

I really think this pair is on the same page, but they're each afraid it's not the same book. ^__~
Merry Christmas! Hope you have a good day!
