Disclaimers: I own nothing

Warning: it's kinda dark....ok very dark and hard to understand unless you read the fic....heh

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


{ The music begins low at first we see Duo staring at a person we can't see}

It could all be so simple

{The scene changes suddenly to Relena smiling happily with an equally smiling Heero, they each are holding a cheerful child in their arms...}

But you'd rather make it hard

{The image shatters, revealing Heero and Relena arguing...or rather Relena screaming crying and pleading and Heero standing there looking indifferent. After a moment of this Heero glares at her then turns his back and starts walking away. Relena reaches a hand out to him placing it on his shoulder gently her wedding band glistening...the hand changes to Duo's ringless finger as Heero brushes it out and walks away...}

Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars

{Duo comes up behind Heero while he's typing away on his laptop, and wraps his arms around his neck in a gentle hug, Duo moves to place a light kiss on Heero's cheek. The scene changes to Relena's lips landing on his cheek. Heero immediately shoves her away and hisses something at her before going back to the papers on his desk. A streak of anger passes through Relena's eyes but she turns away quickly taking a seat behind him.}

Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity

{Relena is following Heero around their bedroom, as he packs frantically, he's stoticly ignoring her while shoving clothes into a suitcase. Relena grabs a hold of one of his arms, and forces him around to look at her. Locking her eyes with his she says..." Please-" the image changes again to Duo with the same look in his eyes and the same hold on Heero's arm, " Don't go..." Heero pulls away from him and grabs up his bag, and walking calmly out the door. Duo following him still pleading....}

No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

{Duo is standing in the bathroom examining the bruise down the left side of his face, touching it gingerly the bathroom door opens and Wufei peeks in he lowers his head immediately trying to hide it, cracking a joke about something, Wufei gives him a knowing look and places a jar of suave on the toilet back before walking out. Closing his eyes Duo looks back to the mirror his bruise a vivid purplish black, the image changes again to a tear streaked Relena staring at her reflection}

Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way
Forces you to scream my name

{Heero presses his face into Relena's neck, biting the flesh roughly, his arm hooked under her thigh, a light sheen of sweat resting in droplets on his forehead, thrusting once more he arches his back and squeezes his eyes shut, moaning the scene shifts again to him doing the same with Duo, taking a fistful of chestnut hair into his hands he tugs it hard before pressing against him, enjoying the discomfort in wide violet eyes for a moment before rolling away. Duo watches him turn on his side with longing in his eyes, the scene shifts back to Relena looking at him with the same longing}

Then pretend that you can't stay

{Relena laying on the bed flush faced and nude under the covers beside Heero, smiling she rolls over to snuggle against his back, draping an arm over his waist the scene changes to Heero rolling away from Duo's arm and getting out of bed, Duo sits up on the bed, gathering the covers around him, his face flushed from their activities, with his braid hanging limp over a bare shoulder slightly messy, his eyes are misty as he watches Heero dress and walk out of the room, as soon as he's gone Duo lowers his head to his hands and begins sobbing. Wufei passes the room and looks in briefly frowns and then continues on. A tear slips through his fingers and lands with a splat on the white bedsheets, as soon as the tear hits they turn a light pink, the camera moves up to reveal Relena sobbing in much the same manner as Duo.}

Tell me, who I have to be

{Relena sits at the dining room table, dressed in a black evening gown, her hair pulled up into an interesting and rather difficult looking design of braids, a simple elegant pearl set are the only jewelry she wears. The table is set with all kinds of delicious dishes and the only lighting in the room is supplied by candles and the fireplace, a cake is sitting in the middle of the table with 'Happy 1st Anniversary' written in bright letters on it. Smoothing the dress down she looks up at the clock and then sits down to wait staring at the flame....we pan back to her face and her smile has faded once again she looks at the clock and it's hours later....Standing slowly she dashes tears from her eyes and moves to blow out the candles. The scene changes to Duo blowing out the candles, glancing up he sees Heero stand in the doorway. Smiling at him Duo says something cheerful. Heero grunts something back and walks away leaving Duo with the now cold food. Duo swipes at his eyes and looks down at the cake with 'Happy 1st Anniversary' written on it. Then back up at the door where Wufei is passing by. He pauses and looks at Duo then keeps going. An angry light comes into Duo's eyes and he grabs up the cake and flings it at the wall.....the scene changes to Relena watching the cake slide down the wall in an oozy frosted mess, bright tears in her eyes.}

To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

{Relena sits at the head of a conference of some kind, her eyes no longer bright and innocent.....a darker more sarcastic light has come into them now, as she listens to the goings on....watching Heero carefully nodding every now and then....she moves her arm a bit and knocks a pen off her desk...reaching down she swipes it quickly, the scene changes to Duo setting a pen down on the piece of paper in front of him....absently drawing circles on the page while Heero spoke. A hand lands on his paper, looking up it's Heero glowering down at him. Duo glowered right back and pulled his paper away, Heero seemed to hiss something at Duo and Duo hissed right back standing up from the table he starts to walk away, Heero's arm shoots out and grabs him spinning him quickly his other arm raised to strike...The scene changes to Relena, Heero glares at her releases her arm....Relena swallows hard and stalks out}

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin'
It ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away

{Heero blank faced again walked into his bedroom, and stopped a worried frown on his face as he watched Relena pack, glaring up at him. Relena threw another suitcase open and the scene changed to Duo throwing clothes in a suitcase..Wufei sitting in the chair in the corner smiling approvingly until he sees Heero. Stepping into the room Heero glares at Wufei before moving to his dresser, opening it calmly he pulls something out of it and walks behind Duo, laying a hand on his shoulder he wraps his other arm around his waist, giving him a swift kiss on the neck, Heero brings the object around and presses it into Duo's palm....opening his hand a gold pin with a little gold scythe with wings on it glittered in the light....Looking up all the anger drained out of Duo and he slumped on the bed letting Heero pull him close rather awkwardly and extremely possessively. Wufei got up and quietly left the room hiding his frown}


You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy
This is crazy

{Duo watches in horror as Heero slumps down in the corner of the room, blood covering his mouth and hands, his gun also coated lay on the floor beside him as he rocks back and forth cautiously Duo moved closer to him, once he was within arms reach an arm shot out and grabbed him pulling him by the front of his shirt to look him in the eyes, Duo's eyes widened at the maniacal gleam he saw there, just before Heero pushed him down on the floor straddling him he forced his blood covered mouth onto Duo's rubbing against him, and tearing at his clothes....the scene changed again to Relena screaming.....}

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself?

{Pulling the torn end of her clothes around her Relena watched Heero shaking in the corner again warily...wiping a drop of blood off her face she pulls herself into a tight ball.....the scene changes to Duo doing the same.}

As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else

{Heero comes out of his 'state' and he looks at Duo and reaches for him....Duo flinches away from his lover crying. Heero looks at him startled and reaches again....the scene changes to Relena taking the extended hand....}

See I know what we got to do

{Squeezing the clean hand Relena rubs it against her cheek, the scene changes to Duo doing the same with Heero's blood soaked hand.}

You let go and I'll let go too

{Heero pulls his hand from Duo and stands looking down at him, his face is frozen....for a moment Duo looks confused and then realization hits him and he moves to grab Heero, the scene changes to Relena doing the same he easily steps out of reach and shakes his head.....}

'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

{Relena starts gesturing frantically around her, indicating his life and family....Heero turns away from her closing his eyes and then turns back.....an angry desperate looking Duo is standing there pleading with him...}

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin'

{Heero cuts him off by snapping at him, Duo falls silent and lowers his eyes, the scene changes to Relena's startled face...)

It ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy
This is crazy

{Heero stepped closer to Relena, an object clutched tightly in his hands, taking her hand he set the object into the slack palm...the scene changes to Heero pulling his hand away from Duo revealing a gold cross on a chain....Duo looks at him shaking his head 'no.' Heero turns on his heel and walks away.....Duo looked down at his hand, the scene changes to Relena opening her hand to look at the gold wedding band.... A look of pure fury crosses her features and she lifts her hand and throws the small gold band at Heero's retreating back, bouncing it off the back of his head. Heero whipped around sharply to glare at her....the scene changed to Duo storming away yelling something about that caused him to flinch.... The scene changed again to Relena storming toward Heero.....}

Care for me, care for me
I know you care for me

{Heero glared at her and said something low and even, Relena turned away from him and then swung her arm backwards catching him sharply across the face to stunned to do anything Heero stood there a moment and let Relena pound on him}

There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me

{Relena seems hysterical now, screaming and swinging at him, a hard blow to the left cheek snaps him out of it and he grabs her hands, instinctively she begins kicking him still screaming....the children come around the house and watch in silence....}

You said you'd die for me

{Tripping her and sitting her on the ground Heero begins to walk away, again lowering her head to her hands Relena's sobs stop. Looking up a deadly calm on her face she watches Heero walk away the children run around her to try to stop their father from leaving....Only to have Heero give them a solid look and they stopped tears falling down their faces...nodding at them he gave them a little smile he kneeled down and ruffled his sons hair...standing again he turned and headed quickly to the front of the house...Relena looks up and watches him go letting her hands fall limp at her sides...}

Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

{Relena sits in the corner of her bedroom staring at the wall.....images of her life with Heero flash over her face....the first time she saw him.....they're wedding day.....the first time they made love..... the look on his face when he walked away...closing her eyes Relena let the tears come again....opening them slowly the scene changes to Duo......}

Care for me, care for me
I know you care for me

{Leaning back against the wall....his hair unbound Duo stares off into space....all the other pilots pass him looking worried, Duo continues to stare at nothing...}

There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me

{A shot of Relena doing the same thing as Duo....her children looking at her frowning}

Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me

{Relena opened her eyes wide the numb shock finally wearing off, she stands slowly stretching her legs out....wiping her eyes...The scene changes to Duo doing the same a cold light shining in his violent eyes...He heads to the bathroom stoically ignoring the other pilots...flicking the door closed the scene changes to Relena heading to the sink and turning on the water....splashing her face.... lifting her head again she scrubbed her face with the towel...lowering the towel the scene changes to Duo wiping his own face...the cold light still in his eyes he heads out of the bathroom the scene changes to Relena, her children are waiting on the other side still frowning....forcing a smile she kneels down to hug them....resting her head on their shoulders a bitter smile forms on her lips....the scene fades...}

Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

{Duo's image comes up, he's looking in the mirror again the cold light still in his eyes... as he examined the skin tight black vinyl cat suit he wore...two circles cut out of the chest leaving his pierced nipples exposed to view smiling wickedly he half-turned taking in the fit of the suit...unzipping the top a little he nodded adjusting the black leather riding boots flipping his unbraided hair over his shoulder he turned and walked out of his bedroom, picking his coat off the back of the chair as he went...Walking through the living room, Wufei looked up at him with a disapproving frown before looking back to his book. Waving over his shoulder Duo opened the front door and slammed it shut behind him....the camera pans back to Wufei's worried frown. Before the screen goes black.
