Author's Note: A new 100 word ficlet from me, fic 2 of the livejournal ficlet challenge. This one is for Tekli, (aka La Pia), who asked for "anything kenshin." 8 more fics of your choice to go. THey don't have to be Kenshin, either... I have a whole bunch of fandoms I'll write in for this, so just visit my livejournal acct (listed on my bio page i believe) and we'll see what I can do!

Tekli, I hope you like!

Dewa mata!
