Second Thoughts
by the Rurouni Idoru

Shizuru lay there in silent thought. She glanced at the man next to her, and noticed that his black hair was flowing across the pillows just as her brown hair was. She knew it was a bad idea to do what she'd just done. She barely knew Sakyo at all, and yet she found herself here with him. Gently, she ran her long fingers through his hair and touched his pale arm. She wanted assurance that what she had done was alright. She slowly leaned over and spoke quietly into his ear.

"Sakyo, do you love me?"

He was sleeping.
