Duo gasped as he felt Heero's arms around him, and felt the knife at his
throat. He felt the warm body behind him, and wondered why he didn't feel
more frightened. Adrenaline surged through his veins; somehow he trusted the
other boy. He wasn't hurting him. He heard him whisper, "I won't hurt you,
just do as I say."
He started to nod, but thought better of it. Then he was being dragged out of
the office, and he went along automatically. All he could think of was the
heat of the boy holding him, and how good he smelled. He almost giggled when
he realized he was getting hard. There really was something wrong with him.
Heero was thinking as fast as he could. Right about this time, there usually
was some type of delivery going on. He had often seen various delivery vans
outside the office; all deliveries had to be cleared through the office
first. So far, so good. He had to keep reminding himself to stay focused; the
feeling of the longhaired boy against him was threatening to distract him. He
couldn't afford that. He also didn't want to hurt the other boy. Strangely
enough, he wasn't even struggling. Heero walked behind him, steering him
through the hallway. He kept brushing against the other boy, and the firm ass
pressed against his own groin was almost too much for him. Focus...
They burst out of the front door; Heero quickly scanned the area. No sign of
trouble yet. He looked around, and hit paydirt; a FedEx delivery van stood
idling outside, its driver standing at the back, inventorying packages.
Perfect. Heero crept around the driver's side, unseen, guiding his hostage in
front of him. He pushed the other boy in the driver's side, and followed
quickly. He glanced around, spotting another data pad, and tossed it out the
side in case it was enabled with GPS tracking. Taking a minute to familiarize
himself with the controls, he noted the FedEx man had just gone in the
building, unaware. Glancing over at his passenger, he growled, "Stay down,"
and drove away as quickly as possible.
Duo hunched down between the seats, holding onto the passenger seat but doing
as he was told. He found he already missed the feeling of the other boy
against him. He briefly wondered what was wrong with him; he was being
kidnapped, he shouldn't be enjoying this so much! He certainly shouldn't be
lusting after his gorgeous captor, staring at his profile as he drove,
melting at the steely determination on his handsome face... but he had to
admit, this was the most fun he'd had in a long time. He trusted the other
boy when he said he wouldn't hurt him. Even the knife at his throat had been
almost gentle. He knew he shouldn't react this way, like the whole thing was
a movie; but he couldn't help it.
Heero maneuvered the van out of the school's driveway carefully; he knew that
most people driving stolen cars attracted attention to themselves by driving
erratically. He also knew he had about 10 more minutes to ditch this van and
get another car, before the theft was reported. He knew there was a shopping
mall with a covered parking garage nearby; perfect. He could leave the FedEx
van there, and pick up another car, all under cover. He knew also that the
other boy was from the other school; it would take a while to for his school
to figure out that he was missing. Heero took a brief moment to wonder what
it was the longhaired boy was doing at his school, then dismissed it as
immaterial. He pulled into the parking garage, parked and looked down at the
other boy. He expected him to look frightened, but he didn't. "We're going to
get a different car," he explained. "Will you come along willingly or do I
have to use the knife again?"
Duo looked up at him. He didn't want to say that he would willingly do
anything the other boy asked, without coercion. Anything. Instead, he just
said, "I'll come along. You don't need the knife."
Heero stared back for a long moment, then nodded. "Come on, then," he said,
and grabbed his arm. Duo let himself be dragged along, and when some people
looked at them, Duo moved closer to Heero, clutching his arm, and smiled
sweetly at them. They looked away in disgust, and Duo grinned. He didn't want
this to end; he wanted to run away with the handsome boy.
Out of the corner of his eye, Heero realized what the other boy was doing,
but he was busy picking a car to steal. He knew he needed a nondescript car,
one that wouldn't attract too much attention. He spotted an older Toyota
Camry in an employee parking space; perfect. No car alarm, and he was inside
in seconds. He slid behind the wheel, after pushing the other boy across to
the passenger side.
Duo watched in awe as Heero effortlessly broke into the car. Soon, it was
running smoothly and they were pulling out of the parking garage. Heero drove
carefully, and his mind was working quickly as he drove. He needed to get out
of town. He had a vague plan of holding the longhaired boy for ransom, and
then escaping to South America. He hadn't thought this part out fully; he
hadn't expected to get caught so soon. But it made sense; if the other boy
attended the prep school, his parents must be rich. He could do this. He
drove for about 5 more miles, then spotted a Wal-mart. A perfect place to
ditch this car, and a bus stop for their next mode of transportation. He knew
stolen cars would eventually be discovered, and he didn't want to leave a
trail; but public transportation was virtually untraceable. There were routes
heading everywhere. Two teenage boys would attract very little attention, and
there was no reason to think he was being traced just yet. He parked the car,
and looked over at the other boy. "Are you ok?" he found himself asking.
Duo nodded, still caught up in the excitement. "I'll go along. Don't worry
Heero frowned, and explained they needed to get on a bus. Duo nodded, quickly
grasping the situation. He knew all those action movies would come in handy
some day. "You're going to hold me for ransom, aren't you?" He paused, but
didn't wait for Heero's confirmation. "Good idea! Wait a minute... they'll
eventually trace us here because of the car anyway, so it wouldn't hurt to
use that ATM to get some money out of my account, would it?"
Heero had to admit the boy had a point. "But..." he tried to interject.
Duo went on. "It's ok, I'll do it. They'll never miss the money. And you
don't need the knife. Unless you really want to," he added, suggestively,
grinning at Heero. Somehow he knew the other boy didn't really want to hurt
Heero stared back in confusion. "Why?" he managed, before Duo interrupted
"Don't ask. I didn't like it at that school. I needed some excitement. Come
on, we're wasting time, let's go!" Duo urged, and waited for Heero to open
Shaking his head, Heero led Duo over to the ATM, and watched as he withdrew a
ridiculous amount of money. "Sorry, but they only allow $1000 a day to be
withdrawn," he explained apologetically, as he held out the money to Heero.
Heero looked down at more money than he had seen at once in his whole life.
He quickly stuffed it in his pocket, then grabbed Duo's arm and led him to
the bus stop. He fumbled in his pocket for the correct change for both of
them, and they boarded the next bus.
They crisscrossed the city for a while, randomly taking buses, until Heero
thought of something else. They needed less conspicuous clothes. They got off
the bus, and Duo realized they were fairly close to the Mexican border. Heero
took Duo's arm and guided him off the bus. Duo's heart beat faster at the
heat of the other boy so close to him. Through their entire journey, Duo had
been sneaking peeks at the cobalt-eyed boy. He had never seen anyone as
handsome or sexy as his kidnapper. His messy brown hair fell over intense
blue eyes, and the delicate features contrasted perfectly with the athletic
body. A body that Duo wanted to see more of... he tried not to blush as he
realized he was staring at the other boy's ass. He blushed more as he
realized he was getting aroused.
Heero guided them into a small clothing store. Glancing at the longhaired boy
to estimate his clothes size, Heero found himself instead admiring the slim
hips, the tight ass, the curve of the boy's creamy throat... he shook his
head, trying to clear away the distracting images. He couldn't afford to be
distracted... no matter how beautiful the boy was, how much he wanted to
touch that body all over, bury his hands in that hair... Heero realized he
was getting hard again, just thinking about the other boy. He quickly grabbed
several sets of clothes without looking too closely, paid the cashier and
pulled them out the door. He kept trying to make his arousal go away, so he
could concentrate again. They went in a public bathroom and changed clothes.
Then it was back on a bus for some more traveling. It was getting dark when
Heero decided they had gone far enough. He looked around and quickly located
a motel with a fast food restaurant nearby. Perfect. "Are you hungry?"
The question startled Duo out of his contemplation of the other boy's perfect
profile. "Uh, yes, as a matter of fact I am," he answered.
Heero looked at him. "Is that one ok?" He indicated the restaurant. Duo
nodded, and they made their way over.
For the next hour, Heero watched in amazement as Duo consumed more food than
he thought that slim form could hold. Finally, the longhaired boy sat back
happily. "Thanks, um..." he trailed off as he realized he didn't know the
gorgeous boy's name. "What's your name?"
Heero looked over at the longhaired boy. He supposed there was no reason not
to tell him. "Heero." He paused, then added without thinking, "What's yours?"
As the words came out, he cursed himself. He could not afford to become
attached to this boy...
"That's a cool name! I'm Duo," enthused the other boy, wiping off his hand
before offering it to Heero to shake.
Heero looked confused for a moment, then shook the proffered hand gingerly.
He looked up, and was caught in depthless violet eyes. Duo ~ he could use the
name, now ~ stared back, and with a start he realized he was still holding
the other boy's hand. Duo didn't seem to mind, though; and Heero found he
didn't want to let go. He didn't know how long they sat like that, hands
clasped and eyes locked; time seemed to stand still.
Duo was entranced; now the mysterious boy had a name, and he was lost in the
most wonderful eyes; he could happily drown in those eyes. His hand was warm
and strong, and Duo didn't want to let go. Then a group of people came in,
banging the door against the wall and breaking the moment. They both jerked
their hands back, feeling a bit silly but still happy. Duo found he wasn't
"Duo?" Heero said hesitantly.
"Yes, Heero?" Duo said, loving the sound of his name from that sexy mouth.
"I... I want to apologize for kidnapping you," he said, wincing at the
ludicrousness of that statement.
Duo looked back at him in shock. "Uh, that's ok! I'm having a great time,
actually. You've been very nice."
They stared at each other for a long moment, and Duo continued hesitantly,
"Um... can I ask why? Why you kidnapped me I mean? Why..." He instantly
regretted asking, as Heero seemed to close up, the small smile disappearing.
"I don't want to discuss it," he said shortly, embarrassed at having gotten
so distracted by Duo's beauty. This was business.
"Oh, ok, I'm sorry," Duo replied, looking down.
Heero cursed himself for causing the other boy to look sad. "Let's go," he
said shortly, to cover the fact that he had an incredible urge to spill his
guts to Duo, to tell the sweet boy everything. Besides, he wanted to get out
of sight soon; Duo might have been reported missing by now. He took the
longhaired boy's hand again, trying not to notice how smooth his skin was,
and smell his hair...
