Hello all! Just wanted to wish you all a happy new years and all that fancy stuff and a belated Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice and all the other nice things we celebrate around this time of year. This is just a quick drabble. It is exactly 100 words.
This drabble is part of the fic "Shogatsu + Kiss", which is also now posted on my profile!
[Sorry for the delay in Oh Christmas Tree. School had me super busy.]
I still don't own Naruto.
Celebrating Shogatsu in Maebashi, Sentai, Okayama or Osaka is no longer appealing.
Pounding mochi out in Nara and making kagami mochi for the families is no longer enough.
Giving otoshidama with the family in Yamaguchi and seeing the children's eyes sparkle can't hold a candle.
Even listening to poets in Kagoshima and Yokohama write out their haiku and renga celebrating kakizome, hatsuyume, hatsumode and hatsuburo isn't quite the same.
Games in Sapporo will never be as fun as the New Year's eve shared in Nagano many years ago.
Because how can the fireworks in Tokyo now compare to your kiss?
Bored on winter break? Need more to read? Go to my profile and also visit my joint ff account, DeviantCreatures, for new Naruto fics!
