Notes: Written for fanaticalone Request details. 17th fic for June fic-a-day. Kind of a sequel to Betrayal … Odd format. *shrug*
That's three hundred sixty five days.
It was a long time, but it seemed to have gone by so quickly.
One year since they stopped speaking.
One year since they'd last seen each other.
One year since Duo's pushed him away.
One year since Duo'd been left a note.
One year since he left, so that Duo could be happy.
Had it really been that long?
Duo watched his ex interact with their two little boys. Except they weren't quite as little as they'd been a year ago. He'd been hurt and needed time to heal… a year ago. He shut Wufei out of his life, ignoring him when they were together, focusing all his attention on the boys. He'd been hurt too many times; he didn't want to listen to Wufei's reasons, the truth…
Eventually Wufei left.
Eventually Duo broke down. He wrote a letter. He'd gotten past the anger and pain he'd clung to for months. That was when he realized how… empty… he felt.
Eventually he convinced Wufei to come visit them.
As he watched them, he decided he wasn't going to let Wufei go. They'd already worked things out; he'd forgiven Wufei.
Duo walked towards Wufei then wrapped his arms around him.
"Stay with me."
