Merry Christmas Baby.
From the minute Gojyo walked through the door he knew something was wrong.
Goku was slouching down in a chair, lips pressed tightly together. Hakkai was all too casually sipping his tea…and Sanzo. Sanzo was fairly oozing hostility. "Great I wonder what happened this time?" he wondered to himself. Most likely Goku had done something to piss the blonde off.
"Ok what happened, what's wrong?" Goku slumped down into the chair even further, Hakkai was finding something interesting on the floor and Sanzo gave him an icy stare.
Turning on his heels Sanzo actually stomped up the stairs and slammed the bedroom door.
"Alright you two, spill, what happened? Who pissed his holiness off this time?"
"For that answer you'll have to ask Sanzo. Goku and I know nothing except he is in a very foul mood." Hakkai pushed back the chair. "Come along Goku we have some shopping to take care of."
"Yay! Let's hurry and get out of here before the bomb drops."
Gojyo watched them leave, and then glanced up the steps, then to the retreating backs of his friends. He wondered if it wouldn't be a better idea to go with Hakkai and Goku. Once more his gaze went to the stair case. He sighed loudly and started up the stairway.
At his destination he discovered the door to be locked. He knocked politely and called out. "Sanzo can I come in?" hearing no reply he knocked again with a little more force. "Sanzo let me in." After the third time he banged on the door and yelled. "Open the door you spoiled ass princess." He continued to pound on the door as Sanzo continued to ignore him. "Ya leave me no choice here ya know. I'm gonna break the door down and you'll have to pay for the damages." The lock clicked open just like he had hoped.
"So what's got you in such a bitchy mood? If you were I chick I'd say you had a wicked case of PMS" Sanzo glared daggers at him. "What the fuck did I do?"
Sanzo stared out the window, steadfastly ignoring the half demon.
After a prolonged period of silence Sanzo said quietly. "You're a lying son of a bitch."
Gojyo crossed his arms. "Enlighten me oh illustrious one." He challenged.
"You promised." His voice at a near whisper.
"What was that?" Gojyo questioned. "I couldn't hear you clearly."
"You promised me…"
The red head swallowed hard. What exactly had Sanzo seen? "What're you talking about?"
"I saw you." Hissed the blonde.
"What? You saw what Sanzo?" sometimes getting an answer out of the angry priest was worse than fighting a horde of demons.
"You…that…girl…you promised me."
"Sanzo look at me I honestly don't know what you mean."
"The gift store you fucking idiot."
A little light switched flicked on just then. "Oh my god you thought that I was…?" He laughed a little. "I was thanking her for helping me pick out a little something for you."
"Huh?" Sanzo was at a loss for words.
"Were you actually jealous?" Gojyo asked. "That's kind of sweet. But I promised you that I would change my ways and I have." A strong arm slid over the shoulder of the other man. "I see only you where ever I go." Pulling Sanzo closer. "I told you I love you and I meant you and only you for now and for ever."
Sanzo blushed and rested his head on Gojyo's chest. "I love you too." Then asked curiously "What did you get?"
"Well I don't know…I should punish you for getting into such a hissy fit." He caught a glimpse of Sanzo's crestfallen face. "Oh I can't do that."
Sanzo gingerly opened the small box. Inside was a lighter with an inscription etched on the front. He slid his glasses on his face in order to read it better. It was simple and not at all telltale.
"This belongs to Sanzo." Surrounded by a heart.
He lifted his gaze to the sparkling ruby colored eyes. And Gojyo held him close. "Yes this belongs to Sanzo too." A curtain of red hair hid their faces as Gojyo leaned down to kiss the violet eyed man in his arms.
