Love

"I love you lil' Shiro."

Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya woke up from his dream. It was still night and he was still on the roof of a building looking at the stars.

It had been a century and a half ago that he heard those words from her. They had been in the same position, his head resting on her stomach, staring at the night sky.(Just on a hill near their house not a roof). He had been half asleep, her fingers running through his silver hair, when she whispered her confession to the night wind, unaware he had heard her.

Back then he had dimissed it as a sisterly gesture. But now...

Toshiro turned his head toward the sleeping Momo. Her gentle breathe mixed with the wind. He finally just sighed and sat up.

Momo groaned in her sleep her hand subsonsiously moving to where his head had been.

He leaned over her and shook his head. Toshiro picked up Momo bridal style and sped off towards her room. Once inside he placed her in her bed and covered her with a blanket.

Toshiro stood back and watched her sleep an hour. Before leaving, he leaned back over Momo. He pressed his lips to her temple.

"I love you too. As my sister and in many other ways."

Toshiro turned and left her room.

Momo's eyes opened as soon as she had heard the door closed. Her fingertips touched the spot where she had been kissed. She smiled and closed her eyes.

"Thank you lil' Shiro-chan."
