7 – Hero

Fai smiled, leaning against Kurogane's broad chest. The snow started to fall, and Fai was reminded of Celes, of his home country. "Kuro-sama," He said, "Thank you."

The ninja raised an eyebrow, real hand interlaced with Fai's and metal arm gently wrapped around Fai's waist. He was behind the vampire, Fai's back to his chest, head against his shoulder. His own chin was propped up on Fai's shoulder.

Fai was sitting in his lap, head tilted back up to look at him, his lips slowly forming a small, genuine smile.

"For being my hero."

A smirk, and Kurogane leaned down to capture Fai's lips with his own. "Tch. Whatever."
