More than Life Itself

I just wanted to write some sweet, Mokuba and Seto fluff! No slash/incest/yaoi/whatever you call it. Just brotherly fluff.

Part 1: More than life itself

Seto sat up suddenly in the darkness. Reaching for his alarms clock, he wondered what had woken him. It read 3:00AM – early, even for him.

As he lay there, in the darkness, he became aware of a shuffling sound outside his bedroom door. He climbed out of bed and opened it.

"Mokuba?" he called quietly. "Is that you?" There was a tiny snuffling sound, like a puppy and his raven haired brother ran into him, almost knocking him over. Mokuba buried his head in Seto's chest, whimpering slightly.

"Mokie? What's wrong?" Seto lifted up his brother, noting worriedly at the feather like weight of the younger boy. Mokuba just lay there, listening to Seto's heartbeat. "Did you have a nightmare?" The little boy nodded and wrapped his arms around his brother. "Do you want to stay with me?" Another nod. "Do you want to talk about it?" Mokuba shook his head, snuggling down into the bed beside his brother.

"Seto?" His voice piped through the darkness.

"Yes Mokuba?" His elder brother's sleepy voice murmured in his ear.

"Do you love me?" Mokuba felt his older brother stiffen. "Nii-Sama?" he pressed, feeling his heart begin to crumble, when a pair of arms encircled him, pulling him into a tight hug.

"More than life itself."
