Taking Care of You: Epilogue

"What are you doing?!" Fuu shouted as she walked into the room. Mugen was sitting in the corner conspiring with his little friends. Mugen looked up and smiled. Patting the backs of his little friends his smile grew even wider.

"None of your business," he said quickly and bent his head to talk to one of the two little friends.

Fuu narrowed her eyes, "None of my business! It is my business. You've been here all morning conspiring with those two," she pointed at them and they burst into laughter, "See even they know it. Now what have you been up too. And where is my kimono?"

Mugen stood up and walked towards her with a smirk on his face, "What kimono?"

"You know what I'm talking about. My kimono! I can barely fit into what I've got on now and you decide to steal the one thing that does."

Mugen scoffed, "It's not like you're going to fit into them anyway."

"Are you calling me fat?" she took a threatening step towards him and Mugen's little friends burst out in even more laughter. Mugen looked down at her and didn't move an inch, "You are calling me fat!"

She raised her arm to hit him but he was faster than her, "You're not fat you idiot. You're pregnant."

Fuu frowned and pulled her arm away from him, "Exactly. I'm fat."

"No you're not."

"Yes I am."

"No you're not!" he practically yelled in her face.

"Yes-I-Am!" Fuu said as she made sure that she pronounced every word loud and clear.

Mugen shook his head and looked back at his little friends, "She gets crazy like this every time. Every pregnancy."

Fuu did slap him this time, "Hey!"

"Just telling you the truth. Get all bitchy," Fuu would have thought he was serious if it wasn't for the glint in his eyes. He loved to do this. He loved to see if he could rile her up.

"Where is my kimono? It's the only one that basically fits."

Mugen shrugged and went to sit in front of his little friends. Fuu gave them a small glare and they quickly turned their heads away.

"She's gone mental," one of them murmured.

Fuu pointed her finger at him, "Hey! I heard that."

He visibly paled and Mugen stood up and grabbed something that they had all been "conspiring" around. He walked towards her and held out the package. Fuu looked down at the brown package suspiciously before looking back at Mugen.

"What's this?"

He rolled his eyes, "What does it look like?"

"I don't know. Maybe some…"

He pushed the package into her arms and crossed his arms, "Will you just open it?"

She glared at him before she started to unwrap the package. First she removed the string. And then she removed the covering to discover…..

Fuu looked back up at him as she spotted the pink material, "You remembered?"

"Of course…if I didn't you'd kill me and whine for weeks about it."

Fuu pulled the kimono out and let it tumble open. It was exactly like one she wore when she was younger. A beautiful pink kimono with the same pockets and the same designs. Tears came to her eyes as she noticed that it was bigger.

"You made it so I can where it…even now."

"No, I got it made a little bigger so you can wear it now. Because it's our anniversary. Wanted you to know that I remembered."

Fuu watched as Mugen looked away. As always he was still embarrassed to show his feelings. It just wasn't him. She stepped closer to him. Well as much as her six month pregnant belly would allow her too, "So that's why you stole my kimono. To make me this?"

"Yeah," he looked up at her and saw that there were tears in her eyes, "Awww, come on. Why are you crying?"

"From happiness you idiot," she said as she kissed him.

Mugen grinned into her mouth and pulled her closer, "Ten years girlie. Thought we would have killed each other by now."

They wrapped their arms around each other and melted in the kiss. When Mugen began to run his hands through her now long locks they heard the two little friends' give a fake gag. They pulled apart slightly and looked over at them.

"Get a room," the boy with fuzzy brown hair said.

"Yeah, that's kind of gross mom," the boy with short brown hair said.

Fuu glared at them, "It's not gross. It's how you to came about."

They groaned, "Mom! Ewww! Let's get out of here!"

They both ran out of the room before Fuu could smack them a good one. Fuu looked back at him, "You've been planning with your 'little friends' all day. Those two are as bad as you."

Mugen smirked, "Yup. Started flirting with the girls next door already. My boys are growing up. Imagine that! Seven years old and already flirting with Jin's baby girl…."

He was stopped as Fuu kissed him. He was surprised by the kiss but wrapped his arms around her and kissed her thoroughly. Between kisses she began to speak, "I (kiss) love (kiss) you (kiss)."

He pulled away from her and smirked at her. She looked so small and fragile in his arms. And both of them were surprised that they had gotten this far. Two children and one on the way. All living together under the same roof.

"What?" she gave him a puzzled look.

"Who would have thought you would have ended with me?"

Fuu scoffed, "Because no one else would take you. And because…you love me."

Mugen laughed and kissed her, "I do. Can't argue that after two brats."

Fuu patted her belly, "Three brats."

"Not yet."

"I hope it's a girl," she said as he laid his hand on her belly. Immediately she felt her unborn child kick at Mugen's hand. He gave a small smirk.

"There is no way that's a girl. Boy."

Outside they heard a big ruckus as things toppled over. Both of them knew that it was the boys. Probably messing with Jin again.

"Unless you want to deal with another little conspirator like those two."

Mugen thought about it for a second before shrugging, "Still think it's a boy."

"Girl."

"Boy!"

"Girl!"

And as both of them kept on arguing as they walked down the hall to outside they realized that it didn't matter if it was a boy or girl. All that really mattered was that they were together. Fuu….Mugen….the two little boys that were making a mess in Jin's courtyard next door….and one child on the way. Who in three months would be a beautiful little girl.
