What you said: “…a little late, I think.” What they heard: "Baby on the way!”
Before you can explain that you’re not sure yet, they’re already cartwheeling around the room in ecstasy. You exchange an exasperated side-eye with Nanny (Kanetsugu/Giles/Kirisato/Tadatsugu) and throw your hands into the air. They’ll figure it out eventually.
Kenshin has thrown himself head-first into his room of requirement storage room, and started digging around, looking for the most beautiful of his treasures. To set aside as heirlooms, of course. He’s even sorting things properly so that he can accomplish his task. You start to say something, but find that Kanetsugu has snuck up behind you and clasped his hand firmly over your mouth. “Don’t you dare!” he breathes. “I’ve been trying to get him to clean this junk out forever!”
Ieyasu: “Then prove to me that it’s not a lie.” Ieyasu: “Show me all of you.”
Stared fixedly at me, his whispered voice is serious and earnest.
I capture Ieyasu-sama’s eyes and give him a firm nod. As I put my arms around the back of his neck, we kiss over and over. My fingertips touch Ieyasu-sama’s bare skin…I feel deeply that this warmth returns back to me.
Each and every time, you come near to me with that fool and delighted face… I have become used to it already to the point it’s beyond irritating and troublesome.
So, you should just stay by my side with that carefree and thoughtless face of yours. And also…tell me. I still need to learn from you about this unknown and strange feeling. And yes, you have no right of veto in this decision, you know?
a/n: another request this is so amazing i’m so unbelievably grateful!! i could seriously cry right now, i love every one of you so much. this one is for @lexiiferr from this list and requested number 14
A life like his is nothing but mundane.
Of course, people are unpredictable, but his own life will pass like the seasons. The ninja of Iga live and die for the same reasons, and he has known his end since his very beginning.
And, yet, somewhere along the way, he found hitches in his life’s plans.
Saizo x MC My darlings, here it is, chapter two. I am so SO sorry it has taken so long, but tada~ For future reference, this is now a multichapter fic that will have porn but also plot (we’re getting to the plot part, uh, eventually.) So thank y’all so much for your kindness. Please enjoy. ______________________________________________________________
“So…” Oichi stared at you expectantly, you’d done a good job of avoiding her since yesterday, since you left Dr. Kirigakure’s office reeking of sex and flushed up to your ears. But you knew you couldn’t avoid her forever.
Honestly you had thought about telling her, airing it out, spilling your dirty little secret almost immediately, but something had stopped you. It was just too clandestine, too dangerous, too…precious to you for you to tell her. Which was saying something, Oichi had been your best friend since grade school.
What she didn’t know couldn’t hurt her.
So you had gone home, taken a long shower, eaten some take out, watched netflix and tried your best to compartmentalize the vivid scenes that kept playing in your head.
His head between your legs, the comfortable weight of his body leaned against yours, the look of desire in his eyes…
No, it hadn’t worked very well. Honestly even sitting here, a full 24 hours later, nursing an iced coffee you still felt a little bit hot and bothered.
“Hey, are you even listening to me?”
“Hmm?” You looked up, meeting Oichi’s worried gaze.
“Are you okay? You seem really out of it, did something happen yesterday?”
Time to lie to your best friend.
“It went okay.” You sighed, doing your best to feign indifference and disappointment. “It wasn’t very encouraging, Dr. Kirigakure basically just told me the same things he said over email and on the test. So I think i’m going to get a tutor from the writing lab to help me on thursday.” You shrugged, willing your body to relax the tension rapidly building in your shoulders.
“Ah, I see. So this is a case of the over-achiever blues, hm?” Oichi leaned forward, poking you on your cheek. “Sounds like we need to go and get drunk as soon as you are done with this test on Friday.”
“I’m not sure that will fix my problems.” You snorted, shaking your head. “I don’t know how someone with such an overprotective brother seems to be able to go out every weekend.” You smiled at her, your tone joking.
“Come on, you’ve been watching me do it since we were in high school, all we have to do is avoid the places he’s at, duh.”
Oh yes, you had done your fair share of hiding from Oda Nobunaga since you were barely old enough to pretend to be old enough to get into bars. Even still…
“I’ll do it, only for you though.” You shook your head, snapping your book shut and leaning over to gaze at her. “No funny business this time, I hate having to bail you out of trouble.”
“But you’re so good at it!”
Class, right. You had to go to that.
You sighed, for what was certainly the 50th time that day, pushing the door open to the small, dare you say intimate, classroom.
There were only about 15 students left in the class, so it didn’t much matter. It wasn’t like you were packed in like sardines.. Still the smallness of the space seemed pronounced today as you slid into your desk. Right, it was just class. You went to this class every other day. You could do this.
The professor was late, unsurprising, he was rarely early. Yet, he always seemed to just appear, almost like out of thin air, right as the students started to let their guards down.
Right as you let-
“Well, what a miserable looking group we have here today.” His mock cheer tore you from your thoughts.
Yes, exactly like that.
There he was, the same cool and composed force as always, except….except where he had once been a far off longing of yours, (who didn’t have teacher fantasies, after all) now he stood in flesh and blood and heat that you had felt yourself.
You still had the vivid feeling of his messy hair between your fingers and his body pressed to yours. And…And…You pressed your legs together, a mortified sense of dread building in you.
Everyone was going to find out.
There was no way they couldn’t tell.
The blush on your cheeks was visible, you were sure.
Okay, okay, you just had to take deep breaths. Steady yourself. He surveyed the room, leaning against the desk at the front, a bemused look on his face, and then he looked at you. You grew still, trying your best to maintain enough eye contact to appear normal before looking down at your desk.
You could swear you saw the beginnings of a smirk on his face as you looked away.
“Well, children, I see that some of you are anxious about the exam you have on Friday.” Professor Kirigakure sighed, in what was clear disappointment. “Midterms are, as you know, quite important to passing.” He stood, walking over to the whiteboard behind him. “Luckily for most of you, one of your classmates decided to be a willing sacrifice and email me.” The group of people around you were murmuring to themselves. No, none of them had emailed him, then who?
You, you had emailed him.
“Because of one student’s bravery, I’ve decided to reward you all with a review packet on what all we’ve learned.” A feeling of relief. Saizo hands out the packets, choosing to go one by one down the aisle, dropping a packet onto your desk.
You could feel his warmth as he brushed against you, his hand for just a moment grazing the flesh on your arm, goosebumps breaking out at the feeling.
You glanced up at him, only to find that he had moved on, resuming his discussion on the material at hand.
Oh, how were you going to handle this?
You flipped through the packet, scanning the words with minimal interest, until you turned to the back, the last page, where a phrase was written in a familiar script.
Naughty little ladies that don’t pay attention get punished.
You all but slammed the paper of the packet shut, eyes firmly planted on the whiteboard.
He had definitely noticed your slip of attention, damn.
No matter, no matter. You shook your head, taking as many notes as you could.
After class you did your best to slip out quietly, Dr. Kirigakure swamped with questions as usual, and yet, somehow, as you reached the door a hand grasped at your arm.
“E-Eh” You looked up, meeting the crimson-copper eyes of your teacher, a growing ever-more familiar smirk on his lips. Your heart pounded in your chest at the look he was giving you. “P-Professor?” You stammered, allowing him to guide you just out of sight, your body pressed against the wall next to the door.
“You weren’t doing a very good job of appearing inconspicuous.” His tone was amused, his hand wandering up your shirt. “We should try to do better in the future, hmm” You nodded, heat coiling in your stomach. You’d do whatever he wanted, really, so long as he kep touching you.
“Yes sir.” It left your mouth before you had a chance to pull it back, a predatory gleam appearing in Saizo’s eyes at your words. His lips pressed to yours in the next moment, drawing and swallowing the gasp off of your lips. You clung to him, relishing the feeling of his body pressed against your own.
Then it was over, and you were panting as he shrugged his shoulders.
“Unfortunately, the little lady still has to be punished for not paying attention in class.” He pressed his mouth against your ear. “But that will have to wait until tomorrow night, won’t it?”
You stood in front of your mirror, a frown creasing your features. Tomorrow had come far too quickly and now you were at a dilemma.
How was one supposed to dress to have a secret rendezvous with their professor? You sighed, falling back onto the bed.
Normally, they were supposed to dress normally, because it was supposed to be inconspicuous, and why the fuck would you be dressing up just for him to take it off? You could imagine his humor already, if you showed up in your sunday best.
That hadn’t stopped you from putting on your best lingerie, might as well try to look cute where it counted, right?
You hummed to yourself, a discordant tune, opting for something that you’d call ‘dressy casual’ before stepping out of your room.
Oichi sat in the living room, eyeing you with an open interest.
“Are you going on a date?” She sat up from her spot, looking you up and down.
“Tutoring.” You responding, not even stopping to look at her. You could hear her snort, could almost imagine her shaking her head.
“Must be a cute tutor.” She was giggling as you shut the door.
You entered the address on a much crinkled piece of paper into your phone.
You could do this
Saizo lived in a really nice apartment complex, not surprising considering his teaching position. But at the same time you weren’t really sure where you had pictured him living.
His office maybe?
you sighed, stepping out of the elevator and into the hallway. Now if the numbers were in ascending order you should be there…
You paused, looking up at the door. Okay, good. You reached out a hand to knock on the door only to have it open up before you could.
You blinked, surprise evident on your features. Saizo stood in front of you, appraising you with his knowing eyes. Butterflies churned in your stomach. You stand there for a moment until he speaks.
“I suggest you step inside, unless you want my neighbors to wonder what you are doing here.” he chuckled at the look you shot him in return allowing you to follow him into the room, looking around with interest.
It was quite plain, to your surprise. Sturdy furniture, and a minimalist feel, something that you would have described as the bare essentials of living. You thought back to your own homey and cluttered space and glanced at your teacher in curiousity.
What sort of secrets were lying just underneath his cool facade?
“That look on your face can only mean trouble for you.”His cool voice at your ear makes you shiver. You turned to face him, only to find a pair of arms hooked around your waist, keeping you in place with your back pressed against him. “Of course, maybe it is trouble you’re looking for, considering that you are here.”
“Didn’t you ask me to come?” You wriggled and then stilled in his arms, stealing a glance up at his face.
“And you had to be very brazen or just a little bit stupid to actually come.” he chuckles as you flush, trying to pull away from him. “Ah, ah, no. It’s too late now, little lady. You did come here for another lesson, didn’t you?” One of his hands trailed a path up your stocking-clad leg, stopping when his hand met flesh. “Thighhighs?” he looked down at you, raising his eyebrow. You pouted in response.
“I guess I am more brazen than stupid, sir.” You replied, a soft edge of victory at brief look of surprise on his face.
“Well I suppose I could never turn down a student so eager to learn.” He navigated you to his couch pulling you into his lap. You froze, perched comfortably against him. The intimacy of the gesture threw your emotions into a tizzy and you inhaled sharply as you tried to keep yourself in check.
Saizo sighed, tsk’ing his tongue.
“I didn’t realize how much you had to learn.” he patted you on the head “Turn around.”
“Hm?” You shifted your body, turning around to straddle him. “Is this what you wanted?” the blush was high on your cheeks as you brought your hands up to rest on his shoulders.
“Mm. Getting better.” his hands rested on your hips and you took the opportunity to press your lips against his. He let you go for a moment, opening his mouth and allowing you to explore it with your tongue.
Only for a moment though.
His teeth sunk into the flesh of your bottom lip, eliciting a soft cry from you as you attempted to pull away. He held you fast, however, trailing his tongue to sooth the wound the copper taste filling your mouth. The sensation drew a moan from your lips, and when he finally let you pull away you could only look at him, letting your teeth graze over the sensitive spot he left.
“I think you’re ready.” Saizo pulled a ribbon out of his pocket, the stark red of it drawing your attention. You shivered softly at the dark look he gave you, a sudden uncertainty growing.
“Ready for what?” your voice was small, he noticed your hesitation, brushing his knuckle against your cheek.
“Your next lesson is a lesson in vocabulary.” You stared at him. What was he even talking about?
“What’s that for then?” you grasped the free end of the ribbon in your hand, a sudden thought crossing your mind.
It was like the red ribbon of fate connecting the two of you
“Sensory deprivation.” He ran his thumb across your bruised bottom lip. “Covering your eyes, letting you describe what exactly it is I am going to do to you, using more appropriate language.”
Oh that did sound pretty appealing actually.
“Oh…Okay.” You nodded, an embarrassed flush on your cheeks, “If…Ah, mmh, if you want to.” As you spoke, he was pushing up the fabric of your dress. You reached down and tugged the material over your own head, letting it fall beside you.
Yes, you were glad you had worn your good underwear.
“Well then, I suppose we are in agreement, little lady.” He looked you over with some measure of cool appreciation before securing the ribbon over your eyes, shrouding you in red-tinted darkness. “If you want to stop at any time, just say dango.”
“Dango?” You let out a nervous laugh. “Is that your favorite dessert or something?”
“Maybe.” His hands were cold enough to make you shiver as they brushed over your bare skin. “What’s a word you would use to describe this feeling?”
“nn…Ticklish?” You wriggled as he adjusted your body to fall softly against the sofa . “Soft…mm, like feathers, maybe?”
“A feather light touch that sends shivers down your spine?” His voice seemed lower than before, or maybe you just hadn’t noticed before.
“Mmmhmm.” you sighed as he continued to trail his hands lightly against your skin. You felt his lips brush lightly against your neck, followed by teeth grazing against the skin. A mewl left your throat as he applied more pressure, light kisses followed by nips at your skin.
“What about that?” He questioned, breath so hot against your ear. He had unclasped your bra in the moment, and you felt the material go slack against your arms. He pulled it off and you could hear it hit the ground as his hot kisses made their way to your breast.
“A-Ah.” You arched your back as he bit at the soft flesh, the cry leaving your throat before you even realized.
“I believe we were asked a question.”
“A-Ah, thats n-not fair, you know.” Your hands were in his hair. “It was painful, but I liked it.” the confession was stark.
“U-Uhm. It was…it was…” You struggled for a moment. “It was pleasure at the height of pain?” You ventured, trying you best to think back to the packet he had passed out. Sex novels were pretty over the top.
“Better.” He laughed, a sound that tugged at your heartstrings. “Maybe you aren’t so hopeless after all, little lady.”
“I said I wasn’t a B average student.” you ran your hand down his chest, a bit surprised to meet bare skin. When had he taken off his shirt?
Down, down you went. Trailing lower, brushing against him. A bit surprised to find him aroused. He made a noise not unlike a growl as you pressed your hand more firmly against the cloth of his pants.
“What is your plan exactly with that?” He captured your hand, bringing your arms up to rest above your head. “Do I have to tie you up as punishment for trying to distract me from the lesson?”
“W-What?” You stuttered. “I don’t know about all that, sir.”
“You can say Saizo, you know.” He continued, ignoring your comment. “We aren’t in class, and this certainly breaks the student and teacher boundary already.” You could feel his weight shift on the couch as he leaned back, pulling your underwear off in one motion.
For a moment you were still, the sound of him shedding the rest of his clothes
“I’m not sure I can.” You stated finally.
“What is stopping you little lady?” He pulled you closer to him by your hips, and you were conscious of the feeling of the material under you. “In fact I seem to remember you moaning my name without much issue last time.” He sounded amused. “Maybe that is all I have to do.” he pressed a surprise kiss to your lips as he maneuvered your leg around his waist. You caught on quickly enough, hooking your legs around his waist, digging your fingernails into the skin of his shoulders in anticipation.
“Same as last time sir- I mean, Professor Kirigakure.” You let out a giggle, unable to stop yourself.
“Cheeky for someone who still has an entire half a semester in my class.” He doesn’t sound upset though, rather almost proud. “You know.” He pauses for just a moment. “I think hickies are a good look for you.” You gasp, slapping his shoulder lightly. “Or rather, my hickies are a good look for you.” Before you can respond his lips are on yours again, his body pressed so, so close.
You rock your hips against his, a impatience in your movements you hope he picks up.
He does. It doesn’t take him long to adjust your bodies, sliding into you in a way that had you panting against his lips.
“Uhhhnnn.” A muffled cry of pleasure left your mouth. You wondered, if his hickies looked good on you, did the bruises you left on his shoulders look good on him?
He wasn’t gentle, even less so than before. Maybe it was the blindfold that had you seeing stars faster than normal. It was like your awareness of your own body had increased. His movements seemed to have a sharper edge, each one bringing another sound to your lips.
“E-exquisite” You managed, sliding your hands to his chest. “Mindblowing, m-mostly.” You continued, lifting your hips to meet his movements, each of his thrusts bringing you closer to the edge.
“At least one of those would get you an A on my exam.” He drawled, sounding a little less in control than normal.
“I hope I use the right one then.” You were barely holding on, a mess, it took quite a bit just to be able to coherently form that sentence. His hands were firmly planted on your hips, tilting them up to bring a different angle to his thrusts. He knew what he was doing, you were all but crying at his movements.
“S-Saizo.” Finally, you broke, chanting his name over and over again like a prayer. That seemed to do the trick. You could barely comprehend his murmur of “good girl” as he brought you to climax, this time you could feel his own body stiffen as you fell off the edge, a sort of sordid satisfaction at the idea that he got just as much satisfaction as you did from this.
After a moment of silence he undid your blindfold, tugging it off in a fluid gesture.
You blinked, gazing up at his eyes, startled to see a softness in them so much like last time, when he had kissed your forehead.
“I think you are better off without the blindfold.” He said, idly pulling you back onto his lap, using the ribbon to tie up your hair.
“E-Eh?” You were almost a bit overwhelmed at his gentleness, waiting expectantly for him to continue.
“Your facial expression are too telling for me to just cover them up.” He smirked, nipping at the shell of your ear and making you moan again, a short and soft sound.
“T-Too much.” You were blushing, which seemed to only prove his point.
“It is so unfortunate that the midterm is tomorrow.” He continued, allowing you to snuggle against his chest, his hands resting lightly in your hair. You refused to garner the thought that he might stop seeing you after the test, so you did your best to ignore his words.
“But there is always the final.” You finished for him, biting your lip and relishing the soreness. “I’m sure I can still find room to improve.”
He rolled his eyes.
“With words like that I might not want you getting any better.” You frowned at him in response, which only made him smirk. “Don’t worry little lady, I’m not near done with you.”
You didn’t like how he could read your mind so easily.
You sighed, moving to pull away from him, a yawn leaving your lips. He held you in place, allowing himself to fall back onto the couch, with you resting on top of him.
“Not so fast.” He shook his head. “You’re only dismissed when I say so.”
Lords reaction to accidentally hitting their daughter [Headcanon] (Request)
A/N: I just know this is going to be both hilarious and painful. Rest under the cut to save dashboards.
What did he do? That was the price of his pride, wasn’t it. The girl was crying in his arms, a big bruise on her forehead that was caused by his own practice sword. Nothing seemed to work. She wouldn’t stop crying. He knew it had been a bad idea to let her stay. He should have sent her away, with her mother, but no, those puppy eyes were stronger than he was. And everyone tried to warned him, to tell him that his girl was walking right to him, but he thought they were trying to distract him.
“Here, have some sugar stars”, he wiped her tears away, before kissing the red mark on her forehead. “Mama’s sweets will make you feel better, ok?”
He thought it was a good idea. To show his daughter that he was strong, that he could protect her too. And so, he couldn’t say no when she asked him if she could stay in training. Well, what could go wrong? Right? Everything. Everything could go wrong. He was always so defensive that when he heard something behind him his first impulse was to attack.
He wish he hadn’t.
“Are you okay?!” he rushed to her, hugging her and trying to cease her tears. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry… Papa was careless”. Mitsuhide showered her in kisses and pampers, guilt heavy on his shoulders after seeing the bruise that was sure to appear any time.
It had been a long time since last time the retainers had seen Yukimura panicking so much. He was carrying the little girl in his arms, running around the castle, yelling to the maids, for someone to help him. When you heard him, you left the kitchen as fast as you could. Then you saw him. Your daughter in his arms, both of them crying.
Thank you for sending this in! I hope I do him justice, I haven’t played his route yet but I plan to.
“It’s about the baby. It’s yours.” She says gently, crystalline beads welling up at the corner of her eyes as she speaks. Words from her had been so fragile that there mind as well have been a warning sticker placed on them, and for all Inuchiyo was, he was never good at handling fragile things. Her small frame shrinks under those words, and his breath his hitched in his throat as soon as the word baby finally resonates with him.
Inuchiyo was never about tenderness. He was about brute force, unmatched strength, and brazenness, but when she says these words he’s not quite sure how to handle it. A child, a baby let alone, was none of that. Could he even handle a child without hurting it? Inuchiyo had to count the times he had dreamed under the night sky that she would one day hopefully be his and that they would have children together. But words and feelings were alive, and the things he had felt before had simply been only dreams.
“What?” It was the only thing to be permitted from himself at the moment, eyes widening at her sudden confession. He had known she had been sick, he had known she wasn’t feeling particularly at her best, but pregnant? Inuchiyo isn’t sure if his world has ever pitched this much around him before. It takes him a moment before he realizes he should be comforting her, but he wasn’t sure how to if he still didn’t know how to react at the news.
Was this even real?
“You’re… having… my baby?” He tested the words out like he was testing out new sandals. He failed to understand what he was feeling. Then, there was a sudden warmth to his heart that he didn’t expect before, something he could definitely identify with being overjoyed as he took her into his arms and held her close. Inuchiyo felt her attempt to nod in response to him while he held her, and he had never held her tighter.
“I’ve… always thought about if something like this would happen.” An understatement at best, as if it hadn’t been a lifelong aspiration of his and something he knew would be a miracle in itself when she had been the world and he was only simply living in it. He knew then with her in his arms that this was the right thing to do, and that he was never more sure of it now: he wanted to be with her. She amazed him to no end, and she hadn’t failed to amaze him this time, either.
First off I just want to thank you for the smut (throws love in your direction) this blog is satisfying my need for my newish obsession slbp. I love your fanfic masterpost too. Who would be the one lord that you would gladly bail out of jail and what did they do? 🍡🍡
Ooohhhh, thanks for the fun asks darling, hahahah. This cracks me up so much because I had to bail my boss out of jail once (and it was a mad dash to get his lawyer and get to him before he was deported no less) and it was a very good day once I managed to arrange for his bail (and a MASSIVE relief too). And translated to modern AU, these lords would be MC’s bosses, hahahahah.
I would gladly bail any of these lords out of jail, actually, provided I got the fund to bail them out (but they are rich, so no worries hahahaha). Gosh, I can’t pick just one. But of course my hubby Kojuro gets priority.
As for what they did? Oh, misdemeanors…
Nobunaga: minor assault. He saw a bully in the street and got involved and lost his temper. But nevermind, punching the bully’s face was quite satisfying and hey, he got out in no time thanks to you.
Mitsuhide: arson. bwahahahaha! Don’t bail him, join him! Hahahahahha, okay, what kind of crime he could do? most probably aiding and abetting a criminal *cough cough* nobu.
Saizo: illegal hacking into some top secret government/corporate’s digital vault. He’s very chill about it though. And little lady, the Kai Corp is always ready to bail him out.
Yukimura: speeding. He’s a speed addict and when his motorbike got pulled over for speeding, he made it worse because he tries to (blame Saizo for telling him to do this) sweet talk the officer, which failed spectacularly.
Masamune: illegal possession of endangered wildlife species. To be fair, those exotic animals and birds are gifts from Nobunaga though.
Kojuro: hoarding. Hahahahahah. No, really, precious girl, he got it under control! It’s just some pesky neighbours reported him as endangering public health or something. Uh, huh, you are so staging an intervention with Masamune and Shigezane after that.
Inuchiyo: disorderly conduct, and later, resisting arrest. He got into a bar brawl. He was rather drunk and some asshole at the pub just won’t stop harassing you. Made it worse because he insisted that that dude started it first!
Hideyoshi: disorderly conduct, and later, attempt of bribery. Well, he got to help Inuchiyo, right? and you can’t blame him to try to sweet talk their way out of an arrest - that officer is cute.
Ieyasu: possessions of an illegal substance (and possibly distribution of it too). He has a massive, massive collection of recreational drugs and pharms. Also, he grows weed in his basement.
Mitsunari: vandalism. He strikes me as an activist and he would, for the right cause, join a guerrilla movement. He thinks defacing public properties as a protest is stupid but went along anyways because he cares for his friends.
Kenshin: petty theft (or maybe grand theft if it’s a super expensive item). It’s not that he didn’t want to pay, he just forgot to. Those items were so pretty, they deserve to go home with him, huh, so he just walked out of the store. Kanetsugu almost got a seizure because Kenshin is actually shopliftng from a high-end department store that he himself owns…
Shingen: indecent exposure. You know how when he got drunk, he felt hot and would start strip himself naked? Yeah, that didn’t go well in public. Also it took quite some time to subdue him because HE STRONG. Laugh it off after because it makes a good story.
Like this? Got plenty of SLBP headcanon in my masterpost.
“What do you want from me, Ieyasu?” You looked at him with a weary gaze mentally and physically done playing along with his little games.
Trust. That’s what he wanted from you. It was a luxury that even he couldn’t afford and yet he wanted it from you. He wanted your unyielding kindness, your never ending patience, he wanted for you to hold him and whisper words of love and encouragement when he’s on the brink and lost all sanity. He wanted you. All of you. Why couldn’t you see that?
“I want you, you stupid kitchen wench, why cant you understand?”
