Quick A/N :

Hi guys... finally got my writing bones back... It's wonderful when someone you missed so much sends you an e-mail... you get all inspired all of the sudden. This series is back up again... and as you can tell, (if you have been following the series) wedding bells will be heard soon... for our beloved brothers...

But there will still be a couple of more books to follow after this one... I may not update the books right away, since I need time to create the plot... but once I post a new book, that just means that I am already half-way done. Hope you will enjoy the new book... Merry Christmas everyone! :D


This compilation of stories serves as a tribute for my favorite anime characters... The hottest anime men that ever graced the anime world (in my point of view, that is)... The gorgeous Uchiha Itachi... and the ever handsome Uchiha Sasuke... ^0^

Everything in this fic (the plot, scenes, food, places etc...) is a figment of my *perverted* imagination...bwahahahaha... XD

Chapter 11 : Happy Holidays

Itachi knelt and Sasuke followed. The elder raven took a deep breath. Sasuke was wondering what Itachi was doing. He waited silently. Itachi soon began to speak. Sasuke gasped with what he heard. He couldn't believe it... Itachi was talking to their parents... "Otou-san... I don't know how to start this..." Itachi's deep voice was the only thing heard in the pagoda... "I know that by now you are aware... about us..." he said as he held unto Sasuke's hand. Sasuke listened, his heart beating so loudly that it was almost deafening.

"I know that you might not approve of this... but I love him... I love Sasuke so much... he is my everything... the only thing that makes me want to continue living..." Itachi continued, his voice croaked a bit... as if he was trying not to cry. Sasuke bit his lower lip... he started to blink furiously... he was getting teary-eyed. "I've been praying for a sign... for months... I never heard anything from you..." Itachi said in a hurt voice. Sasuke couldn't hold his tears, they silently fell from his eyes and dropped unto his pants. He looked at Itachi... his brother was crying as well...

"Please Otou-san... grant us your blessing... I want to marry Sasuke... grow old with him... spend my lifetime with him..." Itachi pleaded as he bowed and kissed the marble headstone of his father. Sasuke could hear the muted sobs Itachi was doing. "Otou-san..." he opened his mouth "I know from where you are at, you can see how happy we are..." he said as he sniffled. Itachi returned back to his kneeling position and was wiping his tears. "Grant us your blessing..." he prayed as he bowed down and gently pressed his lips on the cold marble headstone.

Itachi moved closer to Sasuke and wrapped his arms around him. Itachi wasn't finished yet. He continued to talk "Okaa-san... I know you will go with Otou-san's decision..." he said in a low voice. "I decided to come here to personally and formally ask you for Sasuke's hand in marriage..." he said as he hugged Sasuke tighter. "I would never hurt him... I will vow to make him happy and keep him safe from all possible harm..." he said as he placed small kisses on top of Sasuke head. Sasuke whimpered as he listened to his brother speak... he loved Itachi so much by now that he felt his lover's anguish.

They remained seated on the floor, their arms around each other. "Koibito... I'm sorry I made you cry... I know you didn't expect this..." Itachi said softly. "It's okay nii-san... I want it to be formal as well..." Sasuke nodded his agreement. They kept silent for a couple of minutes... it was already dark... it was around 7 in the evening already. Sasuke looked up from Itachi's chest. "What's wrong?" Itachi asked as Sasuke tried to peek from behind "I heard something... or someone..." he responded. Itachi looked back as well. Both of them were surprised with what they saw.

At the entrance of the pagoda, there were a few vines that intertwined with the metal gates. Mysteriously, amongst the dried leaves and twigs... a single flower was in full bloom... a white-petaled flower with a red center. Beside it was a white butterfly, it's wings as big as a grown man's palm... the design on the butterfly was intricate... the wings were lined with red and black tomoes that were scattered over. Itachi gulped out loud... Sasuke understood it immediately... this was the sign that Itachi had been waiting for... what he'd been asking for. The blessing their parents gave with regards to their fervent request.

The butterfly flew towards them... it first landed on Itachi's forehead... the sensation can be compared to their mother's goodnight kiss... Itachi had to close his eyes as a few unexpected tears rolled out of his lids. Then it flew to Sasuke's direction and perched on the tip of his nose. Sasuke blinked a couple of times as he looked at the butterfly... he felt warm all over... it felt like his mother was hugging him. Then the butterfly flew upwards and went outside. Itachi and Sasuke scrambled up unto their feet to chase it. When they reached outside, they were welcomed by the scene of falling snow... it started to snow in Konoha that night.

Itachi walked towards Sasuke and embraced his beloved "My prayers were answered... we got their blessing koibito..." Itachi said, his voice sounded happy... it warmed Sasuke's heart. He hugged Itachi back "No one will ever come between us, nii-san..." Sasuke said as he tiptoed a bit and kissed Itachi on the lips. Itachi kissed Sasuke back. He never felt so happy... so light... so free in his entire life. Nothing else mattered now... only Sasuke... he will marry his brother... grow old with him... and make more wonderful memories together. Nothing will ever come in between the love they shared.

"Sasuke..." Itachi called out. Sasuke looked at his lover "Hmn?" he asked. "Let's get married as soon as possible..." Itachi said with a smile. Sasuke smiled back "Are you sure about this nii-san?" he asked as his fingers held Itachi's hand. Itachi nodded "I've never been more sure in my life..." Itachi responded, a smile on his lips and his eyes twinkled with delight. Sasuke smiled "How can we tell the others? They might... they might think different..." Sasuke thoughtfully asked. Itachi shook his head "Sasuke Uchiha... I don't care what others might say... it's a free world... this is our destiny..." he replied as he kissed Sasuke's forehead.

They slowly walked around the snow coated path hand-in-hand. Their house lawn was quite magical under the moon. Sasuke pulled Itachi towards their pond... the water was frozen at sight. "Can we skate nii-san?" Sasuke asked as he used his left foot to feel the ice. Itachi pulled him back and held him close "No... it might not be that hard... it's not safe..." Itachi warned his beloved. Sasuke chuckled... he was teasing his brother... though he really wanted to skate. It's been years since he had done that but he knew only a thin coat of ice solidified the pond. Maybe tomorrow it would be much safer.

Sasuke held his palm out and watched as the falling snowflakes started to cover his hand. He sighed and his smoky-wintry breath blew about. Itachi was feeling touchy, he couldn't help himself. He pulled Sasuke and gave the young raven another tight embrace. "I love you Sasuke... my Sasuke..." he whispered against Sasuke's cheek. Sasuke chuckled as Itachi's breath tickled him. "I love you as well nii-san... always..." he responded as he held Itachi tightly too. This was the best Christmas ever... the best holiday anyone could ever ask for... and it was too good to be true... but it was true, indeed.

Sasuke got one of Itachi's hands and placed something on it. Itachi looked at it and saw a golden chain with a round locket as a pendant. He smiled and opened the locket. His dark eyes sparkled as his gaze went from one letter to another. He didn't forget to get Sasuke a present... he didn't get him a physical present... it was more of an emotional present... this was his gift... the formal permission to wed him and luckily he got the blessing from their parents. "You like it?" Sasuke asked. Itachi nodded "It's beautiful... just like you..." the elder raven commented. Sasuke got the locket from his hands and placed it around his neck... locking it securely. Itachi smiled as he touched the locket sitting securely around his neck.

"Sasuke Uchiha..." Itachi said in a clear voice. Sasuke looked up "Yes, Itachi Uchiha?" he grinned. "I would like to let you know that I love you... and I can't wait to be binded to you... in mind, heart and spirit..." Itachi said as he placed a warm kiss on Sasuke's lips. Sasuke kissed Itachi back "And I would like to let you know..." Sasuke said as his finger traced the outline of Itachi's jaw "That I never want to be with anyone else but you..." he said as he gave Itachi's lips a small peck. "If it's not you... then there's no reason for me to live... none at all..." Sasuke slightly murmured as Itachi sealed the other words from escaping his lips through a kiss.
