You Just Have to Know

Summary: This is a little piece I think should have been in Wizards at War, just before Ponch jumps into action and does his thing. Kit/Nita fluffiness.

This is it, Kit thought, this time I'm really going to die.

The Pullulus had sped up, and no one could figure out a way to stop it. Roshaun was gone, Tuyet and Nguyet were burned out. And all Kit could do was stare at that rapidly approaching darkness. Nita had turned her sister over to Carmela for comfort. All Dairine could do was sit in the moondust in a daze. Nita walked slowly over to Kit. He turned to look at her, then silently held out his hand to grasp hers. He pulled her to him, and held her close. He could feel she was shaking.

"Kit?" she whispered. "Is this it? Are we really going to die?"

"I think so." He whispered back. "Nita," he began, holding her away from him a bit, "There's something you have to know."

"I love you."


"I hadn't wanted to tell you, because I didn't want to ruin our friendship, and I wasn't sure if you felt the same way. But now it doesn't matter. You just have to know."

"Oh, Kit," said Nita.

"I'm sorry, I know that it's sudden, I started liking you a while ago, but then there was that whole Ronan thing, and, and-"

He was silenced by the feel of her lips on his. They kissed for a long moment, until Nita pulled back to rest her head on his chest.

"I love you too, Kit. Always. I didn't want to ruin our friendship either. But now, with this approaching…"

They both looked to the sky and shuttered.

"Well," Kit said, kissing Nita soundly on the lips and finishing the thought in mindspeech, There's always Timeheart.

A/N: Done! Very short, and probably terrible, but you know how those fluffbunnies sneak up when you least expect them! I have another idea about the end of the book, but I'm not sure if it will amount to anything. Please review! Oh, and check my updated profile!

Dai'stiho, cousins!
