Meet the Parents

AN: I do not own any of these characters. And this is AU for RK of course.

Tokiko knocked on the door of Kazuki's bathroom.

"Are you almost done?"

"Hold on a second, Tokiko! There all done!" Kazuki then opened the door and Tokiko nearly fainted from shock. Kazuki had chosen a black miniskirt with a white tank top. He had also applied black eyeliner just under his eyes. "I knew you would like it!" Kazuki said happily.

"Kazuki! Don't you dare go out in public dressed like that!"

"Why not?"

"It makes me look like a prostitute!"

"I think it looks cute."

"Well take it off now!"

"Alright, alright just give me a moment." Kazuki shut the door again and changed in a couple of minutes. Walking out Tokiko was pleased that he had chosen a pair of black jeans but he had also chosen a short T-shirt that showed off his bellybutton.

"Kazuki change your shirt, everyone can see your bellybutton!"

"Your navel's cute Tokiko. And besides when will I ever see you dressed like this when we're back to normal?" At that Tokiko's eyes gleamed and she smiled evilly at her boyfriend.

"Fine, if that's the way you want to do it, I'll play along." She then rushed into the bathroom and locked the door behind her.

"Tokiko what are you doing?!"

"Don't worry your pretty little head." Tokiko said in a sugary sweet voice. Kazuki was now very scared.

"C'mon Tokiko it's not that bad!" Tokiko then came out of the bathroom dressed in some black slacks and Kazuki's favorite red T-shirt. But then he got a look at what Tokiko had done to his hair. "You…cut my hair!" He screamed. Yes, instead of Kazuki's inverted V-shaped lock of hair, he now had normal spiky hair. Tokiko had also gelled his hair back, giving her a slick appearance.

"Kazuki I love you but I think you really needed a haircut. This makes you look sexy."

"My hair…" Kazuki sobbed in a corner of his room, rocking back and forth. Tokiko came up to him and hugged him tightly.

"It's okay. It can grow back anyway, so don't worry about it." Kazuki sighed heavily.

"You're right as usual." Just then the front door opened and they heard someone entering the house. "Oh no, Dad and Mom are here! I've got to hide because if they see that I have a girl in my room I'll be grounded for sure!" Kazuki then hid under the bed.

"Kazuki, what are your parents like?" Tokiko asked him quickly. Sticking his head out Kazuki addressed his girlfriend.

"Father is gentle and mother doesn't really show her emotions that much unless she's around family but if she's angry about something, you'll know, trust me! Good luck!" Tokiko then sighed to herself and walked down to meet her boyfriend's parents.

"Kazuki, I've missed you so much!" Tokiko was then hugged fiercely by Kazuki's mother. Hugging her back lightly, Kazuki's mom broke away and looked at her son. Tokiko was in awe of her beauty. Long black hair, done in an old fashioned ponytail, cascaded down her back and her skin was very pale. Her brown eyes gleamed with joy at her son and here lips were upturned in a small smile. Then her eyes widened as she took in her son's new haircut. "You cut your hair?"

"Yeah I decided it's time to try a new look." Tokiko replied.

"Kazuki, could you help me with the bags?" A male voice broke in from the doorway. Tokiko went outside and saw a short man with long red hair and violet eyes. Kazuki's dad smiled at his son and ruffled his hair a bit.

"You cut your hair, eh? It's good to change your look every once in a while but I did Tomoe like it?"

"Mom didn't complain." She then grabbed one of the suitcases and carried it into the house.

"Kenshin, did you forget Mahiro's and Kazuki's gifts?" Tomoe asked.

"No anata, but let's wait for Mahiro to get home." Just then Tokiko saw Kazuki trying to sneak past the group and make it to the door but unfortunately he tripped and fell onto the ground. Tomoe and Kenshin instantly saw him and turned towards Tokiko.

"And who is this Kazuki?"
