She was already up by the time Miroku rang the bell. She opened the door and let him walk in wordlessly. He smiled when he saw the necklace she was wearing. He tried to reach out and grab her hand but she linked his arm and led him to her bedroom. As he walked in the door Miroku's eyes widened in shock and confinement.

"S-s-Sango?" He looked down at her. She wrapped her arms around his middle and hugged herself to him. Miroku smiled and tried to hug her but she pulled away.

"Miroku, I have a bit of a confession to make."

Miroku looked down at her, shocked. He opened his mouth to say something but she put a finger to his lips. He felt comforted by her action, but still confused.

"I love you. I've loved you since we were younger, and I've loved you all along, but…I just couldn't leave Kuranosuke because I was afraid you would reject me." Tears rolled out of her eyes and trailed down to her chin. Miroku took his hand and wiped them off.

"Oh Sango. You are the most beautiful person in the world. In the universe." He smiled at her and leaned down to kiss her lips gently. She felt lost in his world for those few seconds.

Straightening back up he too her hands in his, using his thumb to rub the back of hand he spoke softly. "I love you too, Sango. I want to be with you for the rest of my life and I'm so sorry I didn't tell you before." Kissing her again he wrapped an arm around the small of her back, his hand on her side.

"Oh Miroku!" Jumping up she threw her arms around his neck and smiled into his collar. Suddenly the phone rang, breaking apart the couple. Sango walked to her phone and picked it up.

"Hello?"

"Miss Tanji?"

"Yes, who is this?"

"I'm from the board of directors at the ice rink. We have the results from the International Ice Skate Tournament 2004. Before the awards are given out we are to notify the winners of the tournament. I would like to congratulate you on winning…" He paused to build momentum. Sango felt her heart stop as she waited. "First place over all, and first place in couples."

Sango squealed loudly, thanked the man on the phone and hung up. She told Miroku the good news and fell into his arms gracefully. They hung still for a moment before he leaned down to kiss her mouth. Then they fell onto her bed in a tangle of arms and legs…
