i have to get used to this new review setup and the fact that it doesn't actually MAKE you sign in anymore when your log-in expires...
i liked how you gave kaoru a bit of a 'sly' edge as if she's not entirely naive.

courting is good, slowly getting closer is good... one wonders what sort of wrench you're going to toss that's 'to come'.
i loved the little touches and the 'kenshin self control' straining. lolz.
p.s. i'm not entirely sure how to pronounce it either although i have a little idea. kokoro mind, heart, spirit
nagomu to be softened, to be calmed
... i think you have to roll the 'r' slightly.

Love the story, especially the way you write Kenshin. Please keep writing!

I'm just absolutely loving this story! I mean a possessive/protective Kenshin is not only awesome buuuut so very smexy :P Every time my favorite couple has a fluffy and/or touching moment makes me want to squeal heh so yeah really enjoying the interaction between the two of them :) Now all I have to wait for is for the red head to admit his feelings to the oblivious kendo instructor, not that I'm not adoring the build up to the big moment and the romantic development with Kenshin and Kaoru is wonderful. The story as a whole is very interesting and well written. The fact that it's mostly in Kenshin's perspective is so great since a story is rarely written that way and I'm always glad when we get the chance to experience the story from his eyes and mind and know what he's feeling and thinking as it progresses yet we also get to see some of Kaoru's pov too which makes reading it well balenced. And I very much like your portrayal of both Kenshin and Kaoru's characters, just right! I believe you have a brilliant story in the making and I'm soooo happy I got the chance to read it hehehe now I'm eager to read the next chapter so I can't wait for you to update this story again XD
*sighs* and you know what- I could probably answer your triva question since I own both the anime and the manga but not only have I not watched and/or read them all the way through but I'm lazy to go through with it- sad isn't it lol I guess I'll have to wait to find out the answer n_n'

Good story I like!
And the answer to the trivia is Kihei and Gohei Hiruma! Gohei is the one who shows up in the anime. wink!

very nice, funny! i'm happy that he's going to be respectful and honorable about his courtship.
imagine yourself growing up right next to a high school boy's locker room where the acoustics are such that you can hear everything the boys say. you see them lurk and hang around your home, hear/see their conversations and antics. this is what kaoru grew up with, only without the 'western' mores. (google 'kancho' and 'yobai) i'm sure that she wouldn't be easily embarrassed although i think that she had seen and heard much, i'm sure her father had kept her 'off limits', protected her and taught her to protect herself. also, even when you had heard it all, when you really like someone and in this situation it would be natural for her to blush a bit with such a change in his attentions. ) you did good.

i would wonder if he ever thought that kaoru might have common female aspirations of husband and family... lolz. he would have to be pretty dense if he doesn't realize that when a woman follows you across the country just to 'see you again' has to have something cryptic and mysterious in the emotions behind such actions. *smacks the boy with a clue* lolz
at least he's going to try to get her to love him as much as he loves her. ROFLOL i'm loving this, it's great stress relief. he doesn't have to work as hard as he thinks. XD

nice job on this chapter! please update soon!
| mandy111 chapter 3 . 6/2/2012
Hmmmm... I like this Chapter... But I hope that as the story progresses that kaoru doesn't turn into a constantly blushing idiot. I mean NO ONE blushes that much. Sorry it's just one of the things that annoy me- the blushing maiden. I've never thought that kaoru was like all the other girls. Please don't make it like fifty shades of Grey with too much blush!

Great story so far. Can't wait for the next chapter :)
