SUMMARY (given by the author): “I don’t know what made me call him. We hadn’t spoken in five years. Of all the numbers to dial from memory it’s funny what you do when you’re concussed. I could have called someone from the docking yard, or Howard. In fact, I probably should have called Howard since he’d be wondering where I was judging by the light outside.”


Excerpt:
“Maxwell.”  There was another pause; the sound of a clicking noise and suddenly the music was gone.  “I’m surprised to hear from you.”
I felt my lips curl and opened my eyes long enough to smile at the phone before the pounding in my head and the blood on the floor made me close them again.  “Yeah.” 

“Well…” I could hear the discomfort in Heero’s voice.

“Sorry to be calling you, sounds like you’re in the middle of a party.”  I tried to shift position but everything exploded in burst of pain and I slumped back down, face first on the floor.  The phone clattered out of my hand.

“Duo?  Duo, what’s going on? Are you in trouble?”  Heero sounded concerned and I couldn’t help the laugh that escaped, regretting it when my mouth filled with blood. 



WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
This fic has one of the BEST in-character hurt!Duo scenes I’ve ever seen in this fandom. For everyone who likes good whump with comfort this fic is a real treat. It hits you right at the beginning when we find Duo calling Heero. Relatively fast it becomes clear that this isn’t your usual social call. Something is very wrong. Turns out Duo has been shot and is slowly bleeding out. In his barely lucid mind he called the first number he remembered. That happens to be Heero‘s. Can he find Duo and safe him before it’s too late? 

Ah, so much to love about this fic. But I don’t want to give away any more details because this story unfolds so beautifully. It would spoil all the fun. Just go read it, it is well-written, has a super great Duo voice and a Heero who is caring and not shy to speak of his emotions. A wonderful getting together fic!
