"If I know what love is…"
"Go ahead" Youko said, his voice sounding as if he were smiling "It's not the time to be tongue tied" he mocked
Kurama smiled relieved and closed his eyes, relaxing
"What is it?" Hikaru looked at him puzzled; Kurama had been silent for just a couple of minutes
He smiled at her "Can we go somewhere else?"
Hikaru was still confused but just smiled back "Can you walk?"
Kurama nodded and looked at her "But I wouldn't mind a little support"
Hikaru blushed and nodded, letting his rest his arm around her shoulders and support on her while walking.
They walked in silence to a less crowded part of the park "Are you ready to tell her?" Youko asked
"No, but I'll never be really ready for such thing" Kurama answered simply
"I don't get it…" he hmph'd
Kurama chuckled "You don't have to…" he looked at Hikaru who gave him a curious look "I realized that the less I try to understand this the clearer it is to me"
Youko seemed to wonder for a second "The less you think about it…the shiniest the weather is?" he asked
Kurama nodded "Exactly"
Kurama couldn't help but laugh
"What are you laughing at?" Hikaru asked "You seem to be enjoying all by yourself"
Kurama smiled at her "let's say that I finally realized something, but to Youko it seemed a little awkward"
Hikaru giggled "Youko isn't precisely of the common type"
Kurama denied "He definitely is not" he said and glanced at her "But he's part of me"
"I wonder who is the kind one" she joked "Although Youko looks scary, he's kind" she paused " and well… you are just unique" she blushed
They sat in a nearby bench, they were completely alone.
Kurama took a deep breath and looked at her, a new determination in his eyes "You…don't mind all the things that happened?"
"Of course I do mind" Hikaru shrugged "I just don't want to be pushy about it"
"Would you like to know?"
He took a deep breath fidgeting with his hands he told her his story; Youko's past, the betrayal, the hunter, what sealed his soul and what made him lay dormant inside Kurama's body.
Hikaru was silent as he told the story, Kurama's features we serious somewhat melancholic at times as if he felt Youko's pain. Hikaru could sympathize with him, for some reason she could also feel the pain.
"Aren't you mad I lied to you all this time?"
"Nope" she smiled "It's not like you really lied" she said "There are things we just don't like talking about "
"Doesn't bother you that I used to be a thief? After all…it was because one of us that your father died didn't he?" He felt somewhat guilty
"That was an accident" she slumped a little "Besides…you're not 'one of those'" She smiled at him "You are you, same as Youko is Youko…doesn't matter what he was or what he did; The first time I meet him, in my dreams, he was sad but still kind…I felt his kindness at some point" She looked into his eyes looking for Youko "Besides, you're gorgeous" she giggled "How could you associate yourself with common thieves" she winked "Aren't you 'the great Fox-demon thief' ?" she joked
Inside Kurama's head, Youko was blushing while Kurama laughed
"I'm glad you told me this" she felt relieved "I'm glad you trust me"
"I wouldn't trust anyone else as much as I trust you, now is that I realize that what happened in the past should stay there… There are persons who can be trusted, like you" he said as he held her hand softly
Hikaru looked at her surprised, blushed "I-I'm glad you now think that way" she smiled "I will never let you down"
"I'm sure of that" he said and paused "T-there's something else I must tell you"
Hikaru's heart skipped a beat from the tenderness and shyness in his voice
"Hikaru I… you are…" he hesitated but shook his head "There's nothing to be nervous for" he thought "You are the most important person for me" he confessed, blushed
Hikaru was stunned for the honesty in his words
"I don't want to leave your side, ever" his blush deepening as he took a deep breath and finally dared to look straight into her eyes "It's not that I can't live without you" his eyes never leaving hers "It's just that I don't even want to try"
Hikaru was speechless, her heart beating as if it would run away
"Someday, when I'm awfully low, and the world is cold, I will feel a glow just thinking of you and with it I'll make my way through" he said in Youko's voice
Hikaru found no words she just smiled, tears of joy running down her cheeks as she wrapped her arms around him, careful not to hurt him
Kurama smiled, his features genuinely happy as he wrapped his arms around her "If I know what love is…" he started saying as a finger covered his lips a smile greeting his eyes…
"…It is because of you" she said and slowly reached to kiss him.

Oh she'd lie on her bed
and stare into harsh white light
and think that her heart's not right
'Cause love took her hand like a thief
took her heart like a robber
and the feelings that scare her
become her relief
There are no rules for this love
Just keep your head and don't give up
Like all the fools who play it smart.
Lose your head just for your heart, just for your heart.
"Surrounded by darkness, this maiden lived with no other thought than to love and be loved by me…" he said in a whisper
"In the fight between heart and mind…Heart made its way over mind" she thought smiling brightly at him
"I Love You" Their voices mixing
"We shall paint a brilliant dancing dream" were the last words uttered before they both gave in to love.
-.- The End -.-
