QUOTE:
I wanted to speak up and tell them I might not be the best choice for the job since my brain was all but gibbering in terror. There wasn't a lot going on inside my head besides a looping litany of 'thirty floors... thirty floors... thirty floors... '

Taking a deep breath to calm my nerves, I moved across the hall. The others faded back, making sure to stay out of the line of sight. I ignored them as I leaned against the window sill... leaned out... and tried to look... nonchalant. 'Duo,' I asked calmly. 'What are you doing?'

The ledge was wide, though not very long. Extending under the window and only running another ten feet or so before it butted into a corner. Duo was sitting with his back to that side wall, his long legs stretched out toward me. I thought, if I stretched, I could probably reach his ankle, if I had to.

He blinked at me in no little surprise and then flashed me a grin that just about turned me wrong-side out. 'Hey Heero,' he said, just as though we were sitting across the office from one another. I had to take another of those calming breaths.


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
This fic is short, but brilliant! Duo and the other G-boys work for the Preventers now. One day Quatre, Trowa and Wufei are worried about Duo because he does something odd and they get Heero to put things straight.

The fic is told from Heero's POV and as always Sunhawk did a great job at that. It's all about Heero who is confronted with the possibility of loosing Duo and how he reacts to that. It's very well-written and despite of its shortness well thought-out. Of course, Duo is completely normal here, he has just odd ways of doing things, but somehow I like that about him.

It's a get together fic, and, oh boy, as always, Sunhawk writes it so originally, so well it's just so great. It's nice, lovely without being overly fluffy or sappy. I had to smile whilst reading that scene, it's really wonderful.
