Notes: Written for week 11: snow at [livejournal.com profile] iy_wiltedrose

I watched her from a distance. Winter had just started and the snow was falling from the sky. The snow fell around her, into her long locks. How I wanted to run my fingers through them, but she probably wouldn’t want that. No, she would probably not want the love or desire of a hanyou like me. We had become somewhat of friends. I had started to develop feeling for her, but I would never admit it. She was too precious. I would taint her. I had told her I would meet her here today to help her gather herbs she needed to tend to the sick. I knew I should probably not keep her waiting, but my feet kept me rooted to the spot. She was so beautiful. My feet finally allowed me to move. She must’ve heard me approach because she turned around almost as though in defense. When she realized it was me, she sighed with what I assumed to be relief.

“Hello Inuyasha. I’m glad you’re here.”

“Why the hell wouldn’t I be?”

Lovely. There I go again blurting out all these obscenities. She probably thinks I’m a real jerk.

She seemed to ignore my harsh comment and started walking.

The day breezed on by, and I helped her get the herbs she needed, climbing if I needed to, to get to the harder to reach places.

We were walking back to the village when I noticed she looked cold. I could’ve been the nice guy and given her my overlay and told her something nice to accompany the gesture. But alas, I’m no good at these things, and just gruffly through it on her. She gave me a beautiful smile and said thank you.

Once we reached the village, I didn’t want to leave her. I was running through excuses in my head how I could prolong our time together, but to no avail.

She politely hinted that it was getting late. I wanted to say something nice. I wanted to say anything really. But currently, I couldn’t even open up my damn mouth. She just stared at me for a moment, probably wondering what the hell was wrong with me.

But then she did something completely unexpected. She leaned in. I leaned in. And then….

“Oh, there was something on your shoulder. Sorry to startle you” she said.

Dammit! I cursed myself mentally. Oh well. But then I realized she was still very close to me. And then it happened. Her lips touched my cheek. I almost turned to give her the kiss I wanted, but thought better of it.

“I’m sorry. That wasn’t very ladylike of me. The snowflakes falling around your face just made it hard to resist”

She blushed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an emotion grace her face, but I liked it. Her cheeks were a pretty rosy color.

Somehow my hand had a will of its own, and found itself in her hair stroking it. She seemed surprised. I waited for her to look disgusted, but no such reaction came. I inched closer to her, daring myself to kiss her. And I did, to which she responded to just as eagerly.

And as the snow fell around us, I knew I’d never felt more alive in all my years. Was this what it was like to be in love? Indeed it was, and I was enjoying it.

Eventually the both of us needed air, not to mention we didn’t want people to come out and see us in such a position.

We both just stared at each other for a moment and then, yet again, she was the one to speak.

“I really should turn in for now. Goodnight Inuyasha” she bowed respectively and walked into one of the huts.

I stood flabbergasted. Did I really just kiss her and not even say goodnight? Wow, I’m a royal idiot. But no matter, she kissed me! I was happy. I began to run to find my favorite tree in my forest. I knew no one there would bother me. I wanted to replay that kiss in my head for the rest of the night. The kiss in the snow.
