Spinning our web of lies!
Elle's temper shot at being shoved but just as she was going to open her mouth she looked at the boy she ran into. Elle had to tear her gaze from his eyes to look at Jea.
"Its alright. we should've been watching where we were going." she said off handedly
“No really it was our fault” Heero said his eyes wide as he studied her face. “I’m Heero Yuy, this is Duo Maxwell and you two are?”
"I'm Ava DeLioncourte." Jea thought quickly and smiled as sweetly as possible. "This is my friend..."
‘Maris Alomar.” Elle said quickly holding out her hand.
Duo took it gently and placed a soft kiss and wriggled his eyebrows. "Its a pleasure ma'am." he noticed her bags. "Would you like some help with those?"
Maris’ jaw dropped. Never in her life… she thought then let out a small laugh. She wanted to say yes but looked to Ave for the ok.
"Well I don't see why not." Ava was trying to not seem preoccupied with Heero. Who in turn was doing the same. For some reason every inch of her face captivated him. He swiftly removed the bags from Ava's hands letting his linger for just a moment so that he could feel her skin again his. Since he was not as bold as Duo to make a fool of himself.
"Do you live far? We could call for a car. We'd be more than happy to escort you home." Heero offered.
“We don’t live far but a car would be nice if you’re in a hurry to get on your way.” Ava said slightly disappointed.
“I’m sorry if I came across that way but we’re in no hurry at all.” Heero said compassionately.
“Thank you very much. We live this way.” Maris said after she shuddered slightly from their brief contact.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen you before. Are you new in town?” Heero asked.
“Yes we are.” Ava tapped her finger on her chin. “We haven’t been here long. It’s a beautiful town. Have you lived here long?”
“To be quite honest we used to travel a lot but since we became members of the high guard this has pretty much been home.” Heero said smiling for once.
“The high guard?” Ava tried to look surprised and smiled lightly, “Wow impressive.” Duo took this as a chance to be even more impressive.
“We’re Miss Relena’s personal guard.”
“That must mean you’re pretty skilled. To be entrusted with a life as valuable as hers” Maris said sounding in awe of what she was saying when really it was what she was looking at: his eyes. Duo smiled and chuckled – he was captivated by her smile and lingered on her face as long as he could.
“You could say something like that.” Maris couldn’t help herself and didn’t stop to think how Ave would react when she smiled and said, “Bet I could take you” Ava looked and Maris smiled.
“She probably could take you she’s a tough one.” Duo glanced over at Maris again as if to size her up.
“’Hmm’ is all you can say? Huh?” Maris said then laughed at her own forwardness. Heero glanced at Ava.
“So if she’s the tough one what are you? Besides beautiful.”
“I’m the quiet one. It’s the quietones you have to look out for.” She winked.
Heero threw his head back and laughed. ‘
“Oh believe me I think watching out for you would be the highlight of the year for me!” he smiled. Ava tried her best not to squeal. He was just so handsome. She bit the corner of her lip to keep from letting out any noises.
“You are such a creeper.” Duo said, “Watching out for you would be the highlight on my year? Stalker much, Heero?” Duo crossed his arms. “I’m gonna watch out for you behind every corner whey you go to the grocery store, in your house? Geez Heero.”
“Oh don’t be too hard on him Duo.” Maris said his name and savored the feel of it in her voice. “Just meeting you has made my year” She said shyly.
“Aww Maris you’re so cute. We shoud definitely hang out some more. And with Heero stalking your friend I’m sure we’ll see each other more often too.” Maris was quite satisfied with Duo’s answer, “well I hope that if we do see each other again it will because you want to see me and not just because your friend is stalking mine” Heero glanced sidelong at Duo,
“Watch your mouth Duo because we both know I can take you.” He looked back at Ava, “Sorry my friend is a bit of an idiot.” Duo glared daggers at Heero.
“Of course Maris if I see you again it’ll be cause I want to.” He said turning away from hero to look her in the eyes. Ava just smiled as the brash youth seemed to have found a connection.
***(I must have lost what came before this.)***Ava’s comment having a double meaning made both boys smile.
“So what is it exactly that you do Ava?” Heero asked.
“I’m a computer software programmer but its been a while since I’ve done any programming. Now I just do odds and ends.” Duo looked to Maris.
"What do you do Maris?" She quickly looked to Ava who answered.
"She's my assistant."
