Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] kiramaru7 for my Christmas Exchange 2009

After my secret had been exposed, I felt a huge relief. Although the reactions to said secret were not exactly the best, I was happy to have it off my chest. I found the emperor paid a lot more attention to me now. He still was hung up over Miaka, but I often found him looking my way when he thought I didn’t see. At first I thought maybe he was still confused over my gender and maybe upset, but one time I caught his glance and he blushed looking away. Huh.

After one of Miaka’s long trips back home, she returned to us talking about the festivities going on in her world having to do with Christmas. She then went on to explain the tradition of mistletoe and pulled out a few sprigs from her bag, and I all but grinned widely on the outside and inside. I pulled her aside later asking her if I could take one of the sprigs, and she grinned at me as if she knew what it was I was planning, and placed one of them in my hand. I thanked her, and then set my plan into action.

Once I was sure the emperor was asleep, I slipped past the guards, and placed the sprig atop his door. Now I just had to make sure I was present when he woke up.

I woke early the next morning determined to be there when he woke. I walked aimlessly around the area of his quarters, and finally I heard him stir. After a few moments, he emerged from the doors, dressed and ready for the day. Before he could take a step further, he noticed me and smiled.

“Well good morning Nuriko, to what do I owe the pleasure of your visit?”

I smiled shyly, and then said “Oh, no reason in particular, I just happened to wake early, and Miaka and Tamahome were still asleep, so I decided to come see you.”

This was a total lie, but he need not know that.

“Oh, I see. While Miaka is a heavy sleeper”

I took a few steps closer to him and then said “Um, emperor, there seems to be a sprig of mistletoe above the door. I guess Miaka placed it there” Lie.

“you know if the two people standing under it don’t kiss, you will have bad luck” another lie.

“Well then…” he said. I waited for him to complete his sentence when I was suddenly in his arms with his lips on mine. I was in shock at first, but then I deepened the kiss and he responded with equal passion much to my surprise. Moments later, he pulled away from me, his lips swollen, and a blush adorning his face.

“I’ve been waiting for an excuse to do that. I’m glad I had a reason to do so now” he said with a smile.

“Oh really? Well, I’ve been waiting for you to do so. Guess Miaka really knows what she’s doing.”

He laughed and then took me hand and we walked along the grounds talking and laughing about various things. Someday I might tell him it was me who placed the sprig of mistletoe there….but then maybe not. For now, I will just enjoy the memory of that kiss, and hope that there will be plenty more to come.
