This takes place a little after
Birthright Chapter 16. If you haven’t played Birthright then mild SPOILER WARNING.
Sister, j-just crush the leaves like this.”
Sakura demonstrates how to crush the
green herbs by forcing the mortar in her hand down into the bowl. Her brown
eyes focus upon the task at hand, showcasing the signature determination of the
Hoshidan royal family. Her pink hair is pulled back into a tiny bun upon her
small head to keep it out of the way.
Kamui watches her little sister work
while trying to follow her quick movements. The Hoshidan princess is a very
skilled healer, even though she constantly denies it. The albino woman snorts
lightly as she fails at copying Sakura’s actions. Her little sister may not be
that confident, but her actions spoke of how much she truly cared for their
“Sorry Sakura I’m not that good of a
healer.” Kamui laughs as she puts the half crushed leaves down on the table.
“Oh! T-that’s okay! You’ll get better at
Kamui smiles brightly at the young girl
before putting her hand on her pink head. Sakura’s cheeks redden a little as
she pauses in her crushing to look up at her older sister. The admiration and
love that the dragon princess sees in the Hoshidan princess’s eyes makes her
“You are more skilled at this than me
“Oh um t-thank you.” Sakura gives her a
timid grin as her cheeks darken further.
Kamui watched her continue to crush the
leaves with a fond smile. She forced herself to smile for her sister’s sake,
even though her darker emotion of worry was gnawing at her insides. They were
currently situated in the Nohrian town of Macarath, and the army wasn’t going
anywhere for a few days.
Her eyes glanced briefly at the golden
band sitting on her ring finger; it was proof that everything was going to be
okay. At least she hoped that it would be.
Sakura glanced at the dragon princess as
she added a darker herb to the paste. She watched as Kamui’s fingers stroked
the ring absent-mindedly. A small frown tugged at her lips and she cleared her
“Big Brother is going to be okay Big
Sister. We have the medicine.”
Kamui’s head snapped up and her
flabbergasted expression made Sakura giggle politely. It didn’t matter that
Kamui wasn’t her real sister, in the Hoshidan princess’s mind the dragon
princess would always be her sibling. Especially after her older brother had
recently proposed to the albino woman.
“I’m not worried about Takumi’s health.
It’s his attitude that worries me.”
“Oh, is Big Brother being stubborn
Kamui rolled her carmine eyes towards the
ceiling and Sakura giggled into her hand. Her non-verbal answer was the only
response the young girl needed.
Kamui made her way towards the back of
the castle that the Hoshidans were currently residing in. Most of her army was patrolling the area to
make sure that Iago and his minions would not attack while the royal family
cared for their younger brother. They
had made sure to knock out and imprison any Nohrians who remained in the castle
after Iago fled.
“Lady Kamui!” Kamui turned towards the sound of her servant
“Felicia, how’s Takumi doing?”
“Prince Takumi is awake now, but he
refuses to stay still.”
“Oh great.” Kamui felt her eyes travel
towards the heavens before focusing on the maid again.
“Princess Hinoka is trying to keep him
trapped in bed.”
“Oh doubly great.” The dragon princess
pinched the bridge of her nose and let out a draconic snort.
“What about my big brother?”
“Prince Ryoma was last seen patrolling
Kamui could only imagine the eldest
Hoshidan prince marching before the door with his mighty Rajinto in his hand.
Ryoma was highly protective of his younger siblings and the dragon princess
found the idea of him overreacting to Takumi’s sickness highly amusing. He
reminded her so much of Xander that her heart ached. Kamui rubbed her armor
above where her heart was in hopes of easing the pain.
“Felicia, I may need your help. Do you
think you can use your ice magic?”
“Well of course milady! But what for?”
“Takumi has a fever correct? Your ice
magic may serve more than one purpose.”
The mischievous smile developing on her
mistress’s face made Felicia bite her delicate finger. Kamui may not be the
smartest tool in the shed but her ideas almost always involved a worrisome
amount of creativity.
“Brother, can’t you just try to go back
“No. We have to get moving.”
“Not with you basically turning into a
“I AM NOT A PINEAPPLE!”
Kamui and Felicia approached the servants
quarters by following the sound of Hinoka and Takumi yelling. The dragon
princess spotted Ryoma standing by the door with his arms crossed and a grumpy
scowl plastered on his usual serene face. She snorted into her hand and tapped
Ryoma on the shoulder. Her brother’s body stiffened slightly before he glared
down at her, his chin armor making his face far more menacing.
Felicia let out a small squeak and
cowered behind her mistress. Kamui patted her strawberry blonde head in
“How long have they been going at it?”
She asked amusedly.
“Since Takumi woke up.”
“And how long ago was that?”
Kamui couldn’t help but laugh at her
brother’s discomfort; the future king of Hoshido was annoyed by something as
small as a sibling argument. Ryoma’s brow twitched but he remained impassive.
“Don’t worry Big Brother, Takumi’s wife
is here to save the day.”
Ryoma’s expression softened slightly at
the mention of her recent engagement to his younger brother. Takumi had always
been hard on himself, the younger prince was not known for his high
self-esteem. To know that he finally found someone who could bring him the
comfort he needed made the future king happier than he let on. Even if that
person was the woman Ryoma had lied about being blood related to.
“Just go easy on him Kamui. He still
needs his rest.”
“Of course Big Brother.” Kamui bowed
dramatically before entering the room with Felicia following behind.
“Sister, let me
“No you are
going to remain there.”
Kamui entered the small room to find
Hinoka sitting on Takumi’s chest with his hands held above his head. The eldest
Hoshidan princess turned towards the women that entered and saluted. Takumi’s
expression was far from amused, but his eyes lit up with hope when he saw his
“Kamui please tell Hinoka that we need to
“No, Kamui tell Takumi that he is sick
and needs rest.”
“I don’t need rest.”
“Yes you do.”
Kamui put the medicine that Sakura had
made on the small table in the center of the room. She turned towards her
sister and future husband and just watched the two of them go at it. Takumi was
weak at the moment, and he could only wiggle helplessly underneath Hinoka’s
“Big Sister sitting on his chest will
just make it worse.”
“How else am I supposed to make him
“I can take over he will rest for me.”
Kamui smirked slightly.
“Hey…don’t talk like I’m not here. I can
hear you.” Takumi whined.
Hinoka glanced at her younger brother,
his cheeks were flushed with fever but she could make out the beginnings of an
embarrassed blush. She smiled deviously before lifting her weight from his body.
Takumi let out a deep breath of relief and tried to wiggle his hands out of her
“Felicia if you would.” Kamui whispered
to her maid.
Felicia approached the Hoshidan siblings
with a slight frown. She lifted her hands and generated ice around Takumi’s
wrists, binding them together with her magic. Hinoka let go of his hands before
she was hit and Takumi let out a startled yelp. His wrists fell into his lap
and he stared unhappily at Felicia.
“I’m sorry Prince Takumi.” She bowed
quickly before fleeing the room.
Hinoka removed herself from the bed and
stretched out her sore limbs. She turned to Kamui and shook out her hands while
rocking her head back and forth.
“Do you want to take over? I could really
use a break.”
“Sure thing Big Sister.” Kamui nodded in
affirmation. She was already busy preparing the medicine for her fiancé.
Hinoka smiled at the dragon princess and
patted her little brother on the head. Takumi grumbled unhappily in response.
“I’ll be back in a little bit. I think
Ryoma can use a break as well.”
“That’s a good idea. Have Oboro and
Hinata take over.”
Hinoka gave a thumb up and left the room,
Kamui could hear her talking to Ryoma before the pair’s voices faded away. She
glanced at Takumi who was trying to sit up and shook her head. He really was
bad at staying still.
“Kamui.” He whispered. The Hoshidan
prince only opened up like this when they were alone and Kamui smiled sweetly
at that knowledge.
“Yes Kumi?” Kamui grabbed a small
washcloth from the nearby basin and bent over him. The nickname she always used
made Takumi shift in the sheets.
Her fiancé was laying in the bed with the
blankets piled around his waist in a way that made him look small. His silver
locks were splayed over the pillows instead of being up in a ponytail, and his
eyes shined with the brightness of the fever. He was dressed in a sleeveless
tunic instead of his usual heavy fur robes. Kamui noticed the golden band still
sitting on his ring finger and placed her hand over it.
“We can’t stay here, King Garon could be
sending troops after us as we speak.”
Kamui hummed to herself as she wiped his
brow with the cloth. His brow furrowed and he pouted at her willingness to
“Kamui let me up. We need to go.”
The dragon princess stirred the medicine
in the bowl and brought it to his lips. The Hoshidan prince stared at his
fiancé but opened his mouth to allow the crushed paste in. He coughed slightly
when the bitter taste hit the back of this throat. Kamui automatically helped
him to sit up and rubbed his shoulders. Her fingers kneaded into his skin
making Takumi let out a stilted groan.
“I’m fine.” He insisted as he tried to
wipe his mouth with a shackled hand.
Kamui hummed non-committedly and Takumi’s
frown deepened when his fiancé eased him back without giving a vocal response.
“Kamui.” His voice was hoarse and dry,
but he tried to get her attention nonetheless.
She placed the cloth against his forehead
and pulled up a wooden chair next to the bed. Her fingers fiddled with his
silver locks as she finally made eye contact. Shades of carmine glowed only
with pure affection. She wasn’t looking at him like an invalid or like a little
brother who needed protection. The amount of love her warm gaze displayed made
Takumi swallow against a lump that had formed in his throat. This was one of
the many reasons why he had fallen for the dragon princess. It was also the
biggest reason, not that he would admit it.
“Takumi.” She smiled slightly as her
fingers lightly scratched his scalp.
“Oh now you acknowledge me?” He quipped.
Kamui let out a hearty laugh before
poking him in the flushed cheek.
“Only because you finally stopped
“I am NOT whining.”
“You know you are unable to fight right
now. Moving around will only make you sicker.” She smiled and poked him again.
Takumi nipped at her finger with a scowl
and turned onto his side. His long hair hid his face from Kamui’s view and his
wrists ached from being kept in a locked position for too long. He slouched
down into the covers, his body growing smaller against the straw mattress.
“Takumi?” Kamui’s head tilted in that
reptilian way that only she could manage.
“Mmm…” He grunted from beneath the
covers, his words muffled by the blankets.
“What was that? I couldn’t hear you
Honey.” She teased.
“You weren’t here when I woke up…” He
mumbled loud enough for her sensitive ears to pick up.
Kamui’s heart stopped in her chest and
her smile dropped into a faint frown. Ever since Takumi had professed his
feelings for her he had become increasingly comfortable around her. He would
eat with her at supper, he was much more gentle while he taught her archery, and
he almost always held her hand when they walked. He always came to her when he
had a nightmare, eventually he moved into her treehouse to make it easier for
him to sleep at night. Takumi wouldn’t ever openly say it, but he depended on
her support as much as she depended on him.
Waking up without anybody in the room
probably alarmed him especially when his last conscious thought had been of
being in enemy territory. Being bedridden must have made him feel doubly
useless than he normally felt, that must be why he was so insistent on getting
out of Macarath.
Kamui bent over and gripped Takumi’s face
in her hands; she put her forehead on his sweaty skin and let out a small sigh.
“My Kumi.” She whispered affectionately.
Takumi’s cheeks blossomed a bright shade
of pink, his hazel eyes widened slightly and he wheezed through his nose. Kamui
placed a tender kiss on the tip of his nose and put as much love as she could
muster in her grin.
“You take such good care of me. This time
let me care for you.”
She kissed his sweaty brow; she placed a
kiss on his dry lips and then a kiss on the tender skin on his neck. Takumi let
out a soft moan at the sensation, his cheeks grew 3 shades darker and his wide
eyes drooped with exhaustion and unspoken love.
He tried to free his wrists to wrap his
arms around her torso, but the icy shackles dug into his skin and he glared
down at them with indignation. Kamui laughed lightly before putting her hands
against the ice, her increased body temperature melted the ice easily.
Takumi folded his arms around her torso
and pulled her closer. She could feel his feverish heat radiating from his pale
skin. Kamui remained unaffected because of her dragon blood; she simply nuzzled
his neck and purred.
“You need sleep.” She purred lightly.
“I’m not tired.” He argued while trying
to stifle a yawn.
Kamui put her fingers back into his hair
and stroked his scalp; the Hoshidan prince let out a pleased groan and
instinctively sunk back into the pillows.
“Not tired you say? I beg to differ my
Dear Prince” She teased.
“Shut up.” His eyes closed against his will and he
nuzzled her fingers.
The dragon princess laughed silently to
herself and waited for Takumi to fall asleep. His breathing evened out and his
expression receded peacefully. Just as she was about to stand Takumi’s hand
shot out and weakly grasped her wrist.
“Kamui…” His words were light and
needful, a gentle shockwave made Kamui shudder down to her toes.
“Yes?” She turned and used her thumb to
stroke the back of his hand.
Takumi shifted a little in his half
asleep state, his eyes remained closed but he turned his head towards her
voice. His messy hair surrounded his cheeks in a soft halo of silver and Kamui
could feel the butterflies threatening to fly out of her mouth.
“Would you lay with me?” He asked
Kamui swallowed back a small squeak and
climbed into the bed beside her future husband. He turned towards her chest and
wrapped his arms around her hips bringing her closer to his body. Their legs
tangled together and he buried his head into the space between her breasts. Her
soft heartbeat was powerful and soothed his feverish mind. The albino woman’s
fingers scratched at his scalp and the Hoshidan prince couldn’t feel any more
peaceful if he tried.
“I love you…” He mumbled.
“I love you too Kumi.” Kamui’s vocal
chords rumbled gently against his ear and Takumi sighed happily.
His breathing slowed down and he fell
into a deep restful sleep. Kamui watched her fiancé sleep, her carmine eyes
fell shut as she followed suit. Their arms remained wrapped around each other.
There would be no nightmares tonight.
Outside of the
servants quarters 5 pairs of eyes were fighting to watch the couple through the
small crack in the door.
“Hinata get your
elbow out of my face!” Oboro grumbled as she tried to look in.
“I can’t move!
Tell Felicia to get off of me!” Hinata whined.
I’m stuck!” Felicia exclaimed.
“They are really
cute together don’t you think Big Sister?” Sakura happily sighed as she placed
her hands against her heart.
“They sure are
Sakura. But maybe now you could get off of us?” Hinoka’s hands were pinned
under her as her little sister sat on top.
retainers and the eldest princess of Hoshido were piled on top of each other
with Sakura on Hinoka’s back. They had been trying to watch Kamui and Takumi
for the past half hour with very mixed results.
“Excuse me but
why are all 5 of you out here. You are disturbing their rest.” Ryoma approached
the pile with his arms crossed.
“Ryoma, a little
help here?” Hinoka waved an arm at him almost making Sakura fall off with a squeak.
“Lord Ryoma this
isn’t what it looks like!” Hinata spoke up.
“Yeah, we were
just standing guard like we were told. Then Felicia fell on top of us!” Oboro
“I said I was
sorry!” Felicia cried. Her tears fell like shards and a small blizzard started
to brew around them.
the two of them are resting peacefully. And they are so precious!” Sakura exclaimed
excitedly as she fell off of Hinoka completely.
prince of Hoshido closed his eyes in dismay and shook his head.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while schools kept me busy but I found this cute Marco x ace fic for you guys ( I feel i should add this, none of these fics are mine this is a reccomendation blog) about 2 pigeon breeders and trainers that meet over a lost pigeon it’s super cute you guys have to read it OMG 😍😍 3 chapters complete with 26k+ word count love you guys enjoy
Well, you had to admit, Thatch was one hell of
a guy. Seriously, no-one knew how he pulled it off, but somehow, he had. In
some magical way, he’d managed to get a crew of 1600 people to do a secret Santa.
And not only had he personally managed to convince every single member of said crew, he’s also made sure everyone
would have a decent idea on what to buy for the person they hat to get a
present for. Seriously, how??
Such were the thoughts running through your
head as you walked through the Christmas market, having already bought the
present for your crewmate and friend Kozu. He was in the first division with
you, and it had been easy to find the perfect thing. He adored music, so you’d
gotten him a music box that played Bink’s Sake. Easy, no? God, Thatch really
knew his stuff.
Unbeknownst to you, on the other side of the
Christmas market, a different crewmate of yours had the exact opposite thoughts.
“Get away from me!" ”Steve,“ and that is just disturbing; Bucky using that sing-song voice. "Stay far away!” Steve stumbles over the armrest of the couch and falls into the cushions. “Gonna kiss you, Steve.” Great, Bucky’s almost singing entirely as he stalks over. He slinks onto the couch and up Steve’s body on all fours, and Steve doesn’t deserve this. “Don’t you dare! Keep your pineapple breath away from me!" Bucky’s fingers dance over Steve’s chest, slowly circling a nipple, as he leans down.
"It’s just pizza, Steve. Come on, gimme a kiss…" Ugh, Steve is so weak. His lips part at Bucky’s words, whispered and breathy and hot against Steve’s skin.
”No…“ He’s very aware he’s whining, thank you. But Bucky’s mouth is coming closer and Steve has war flashbacks to the Hawaiian on the table. Bucky’s teeth bite down on Steve’s bottom lip, worrying it until it’s as flushed as Steve’s cheeks. "Just a kiss,” Bucky moans quietly. Steve is so fucking weak. A disgrace. Very, very bad, he thinks as he tilts his head up and captures Bucky’s lips. Urgh.
