Jakeda Headcanon #3
Jacqui slings her duffle bag over her shoulder and makes her way across the courtyard. Hanzo and Kenshi are walking through the Shirai Ryu gardens discussing the future of the Shirai Ryu and SF with Takeda in tow.
Jacqui and Takeda don’t see each other all that often since their mission with Team Cage and this is the first time he’s seen her in months. Her schedule brought her to Outworld and back regularly. Their communication was limited and often times when they spoke it was strictly business. Ever since she arrived escorting his father from SF HQ he hardly had the the chance to speak with her. He understood that rebuilding the Shirai Ryu was top priority but he also wanted time with Jacqui. Time he wasn’t entitled to.
“The mind wanders,” Kenshi chuckles and plucks a few flowers from the garden bed.
“Ah…” Hanzo notices his distraction, following his pupil’s line of sight to Jacqui who’s walking toward to main gate. He harrumphs and breaks Takeda’s gaze.
Takeda flushes and attempts to apologize for his disrespect but is interrupted by a small bouquet being shoved against his chest.
Hanzo roughly turns him around, pushing his student toward the courtyard.
“-Rumor has it that the view from mountain path is quite the sight during sunset.” Takeda gawks at him incredulously.
“You are dismissed.” Hanzo grumbles and crosses his arms.
‘Go before Ms. Briggs leaves’ Kenshi quips telepathically.
A smile breaks onto Takeda’s face, he bows quickly and races out of the Shirai Ryu Compound.
Hanzo feels Kenshi’s hand lightly pat his shoulder, “You are a good man Hanzo Hasashi.”
A small smile creeps onto Hanzo’s features as he watches Takeda and Jacqui.
“We were all young once.”
