“Aoba, are you angry?” Koujaku asks after the dance ceremony of the maidens finished. Aoba continue stomping his way and went down the garden. Unmindful of his dirtied robe. “Tonight’s event is to celebrate your success over the enemy camp. I need to do my divination, leave me.” But suddenly he felt strong arms embrace him from behind, “Aoba, I’m sorry I made you feel lonely in there.” he hugs tighter. “and… thank you for the Mamori charm. It really protected me at the battlefield. Thank you.”
Aoba sighs softly “Don’t mention it…and welcome back, Koujaku.” as Aoba closes his eyes and accepting Koujaku’s embrace. “It’s good to be back.” Koujaku hugs him tighter. “After you’re done with your prayer, please get some rest, you must be really tired.” Confused, he looks at Koujaku “Huh? What do you mean?” Isn’t it him who needs to rest anyway? “Well, you must be tired because this morning you gave me en-musubi omamori (love charm) instead of the battle protection one.” Feeling the heat rising to his head, Aoba releases himself from his lover’s embrace. “It-It was just a mixed up!! I made it for a villager who asked me yesterday! I gave you the right one afterwards, didn’t I?!” Seeing the shrine priest getting redder, makes Koujaku eager to continue teasing him.
“But you know, that love charm, can you also make one for me? For us, i mean.” Aoba gives him a disapproval look and begins to stammer “N-NO! Why would we need that anyway?!” He doesn’t understand where this conversation is heading to and after a short silence, Koujaku walks closer to him and cups the smaller man’s face “Oh? We don’t need it? So you love me that much that we don’t need the love charm. I’m so happy Aoba.” His face is totally red now as Koujaku gives him a big smile “I-I’M LEAVING!”
