A/N: I've been meaning to write this for weeks now. SanoMegu's my favorite couple in RurouKen even though they really didn't blatantly end up with each other. Also, I enjoy reading this kind of fic so I decided to write one for them. (And by virtue of my NY's Resolution, I'd be updating regularly).

Hope you enjoy. Read and review! :D

Watsuki-sensei is the only one who deserves to own Rurouni Kenshin.

A: Attention

Sanosuke propped himself on the door post, slightly yawning from boredom. His doctor seems so busy today and he'd been waiting for five hours just to get his recent injuries checked. Luckily, the old man called before him only needed pain relievers so his wait was shortened by a few minutes. When his turn came up, he heard a soft voice calling from the room.

"Next," the voice said. Sano was already grinning even before he saw her face.

"Hey, kitsune-onna." He automatically sat on the chair, not bothering to even be acknowledged. "Got some fix here?"

Megumi flicked her hair and rolled her eyes and grabbed her patient's enormous hands rather forcefully, making him yelp in pain. "You're hopeless. Where did you get this, again?"

She prevented herself from wincing as she unwrapped his hands from the makeshift bandages. Joints were severely swelling and his skin was heavily bruised. But then again, she had definitely seen worse from him. She had even seen him struggle between life and death so this wasn't really a biggie.

"Woah! Careful, kitsu-" His eyes suddenly became watery when she started stretching his fingers. It was a good thing that her hands were warm and somehow it really made him calm. "Fuck, I thought so. Smashing that boulder was one hell of a bad idea."

"Well, it surprises me that you actually thought." Her fox ears appeared popped out of her head as she deliberately tried to sound more teasing to annoy him.

"Aye, tori-atama. What would you do without me? You're very, very, very fortunate you have the fullest of my attention."

She paused. Their eyes met for a moment as she realized it meant entirely different, her voice betraying her. She sounded ultimately assuring—persuading.

What the hell did I just say?

Sanosuke's mouth twitched into a sly smile.

"Don't sweat it. I enjoy your attention, anyway." He almost said in a sing-song, his tongue rolling with each word. "Every. Bit. Of. It."

Regret came to him after he yapped aloud in pain yet again as she skillfully cracked his pinkie. Thrice.

That's it! So what do you think?

Haha. This is my first Rurouni Kenshin fic, since the first time I have seen RK was when I was still in elementary-with the almighty English dub-and the OVAs when I was in high school. I have actually finished reading the manga just recently, so it was the thing that motivated me to write this (we all know that of all the pairings in RK, SanoMegu is the unresolved one). I do hope Watsuki sensei creates a spinoff for Sanosuke, though. (LOL Rurouni Sanosuke)

Anyway, reviews are much appreciated guys!

Happy new year! :*
