“Alright, Let’s get the princess home, shall we?”
It was ironic that he was calling her princess, since technically she is..and isn’t. She nodded her head, still sulking over being babied but she wasn’t going to complain since she did try to kill him. Unintentionally, but…
Kuro gasped when she felt herself being lifted up so suddenly into the air. “S-Sano!” she cried, blushing as the man carried her off with a smile. She scowled a bit as he carried her off to the back entrance that lead to her room. When he placed her down, kuro frowned gazing at her lover with concern.
“I’ll lay out the futon for you…”
Kuro pointed out to the shelf that had her futon in it, truthfully this is just a spare room. Since her’s is actually up a set of stairs, but she wasn’t going to give him any more work. Not when he was already out of breath.
‘And I’m the stubborn one…?’
She smiled half-heartedly as Sano found one of her spare robes to fix her in. She helped him re-bandage her, wincing every now and again. But they managed to re-dress her wounds and she donned a fresh robe, since the material is lighter. Sanosuke scooted her inside the futon, laying himself next to her but on top of the blanket.
“Let me know if you need anything, Kuro-chan… I’m just gonna rest for…”
Kuro giggled, kissing the sleeping man’s forehead lightly. “Silly man. You try to be such a tough guy, but in the end you fall asleep on me from exhaustion.” She turned her head to her shadowy-like servants. “One of you get me more pillows, the other another blanket, and also make me some herbal tea to drink with my own medicine. Go.”
She untied her white hair, letting it fall down past her shoulders. If she was going to lay down, might as well be comfortable. As her minions brought the things she requested, kuro carefully untied the kimono top sano was wearing, letting one of her other minions remove it when she couldn’t move too much. She tucked a pillow under his head, untying his pony-tail to make him more comfortable.
For a moment, kuro just laid there, eyeing the read head for a moment. He’s the only human male whom she’d probably ever admit defeat to. She found herself gently stroking away some of his red bangs, her hand lingering on his cheek for a second before moving it away. She sat up to drink the herbal tea on of her minions brought, taking the cup, she waved her hand at them. Dismissing them away, and like the shadow creatures they were, they disappeared. The taste of the tea felt strong against her human taste-buds, but she dealt with it. Drinking the entire cup. ‘That should help my cells regenerate a bit faster.’
She lowered the cup down on its tray, and re-tucked herself under the blanket, before covering sano with the other sheet that one of her servants brought. Kuro snuggled against the man. ‘Might as well be comfy…‘
She knew that her powers wouldn’t return until the moon was back on its nigh, so she let herself drift to sleep. Keeping her head on Sano’s arm as she slept.
