I just sat there as he ate; trying to still my heavily beating heart. The uncommunicativeness between us was soothing and a nice change of pace from that headache of a rabbit. Before I went back to the kitchens I had stopped Usagi from taking the poor cub's innocents. Just thinking about it made my head throb. But she did have her perks of drawing everyones eye to her and away from what the rest of us.
"Why so tense? Do I make you uncomfortable?" I felt myself jolt up slightly from the sudden voice. Little shivers ran down my spine like an electrical flux.
Blood rushed up towards my cheeks as I looked up into that stunning blue Jewel that was Date Masamune's lone eye. "N-no!" I mentaly rebuked myself for stuttering. It wasn't like I haven't seen a handsome man before. He just kept staring at me! "I-Is something wrong?" again with the stuttering. Why am I so nurvous? Lord Date Masamune just shrugged his shoulders while closing his single beautiful blue eye. His shoulders were so broad. Which only highlighted the rigid muscles under his taut skin that stretched over his equally broad chest and trimmed arms.
What the hell is wrong with me? My blush only grew hotter as I lowered my head; hoping that my long bangs will cover my burning face. "You're pretty cute when you blush." My eyes widen as I looked forward; only to come face first with... oh Kami-sama. And it didn't help matter that his blue hakamas were resting low on his hips. My pale green eyes trailed down the path that was set before them before I tightly closed my eyes and stood up.
"Please excuse me. I have things to do!" I spoke quickly before leaving.
My cheeks where boiling!
"You look hot and bothered, my Mistress. May I ask what had accrued between you and the Dokuganryū?" asked the soft spoken Kage as she quietly walked out of the shadows. Unlike all of the others her outfit was a lot like mine but with flats instead of boots and was off the shoulder and sleeveless. And the colors were navy blue and pale baby blue. Black leather fingerless gloves encased both of her hands as she clasped them in front of her. The different hues of blue created the most oddest but beautiful eyes I've ever seen on a woman. Kage's only answer was silence. "Ah. I understand. I shall bid you a good night's rest then, Mistress Aiko." The darkness of the night swallowed her whole.
I needed to cool my nerves. Taking a deep breath I walked off the porch and into a small garden right outside the Dokuganryū's room. Closing my eyes I slid my left foot behind my right while slowly bringing my hands up; as if blocking something. The dirt under my feet shifted with me as I began. Crouching low to the Earth did I bring my left arm across my chest with the palm down and fingers pointing towards my right as I extended my right straight out. Shifting my weight I turned and stood upright with my arms crossed in front of my chest before bringing them both down as I stepped forward with my left foot.
Turning again I swept my right arm across the air as I went on the very tips of my toes. Bringing my right leg up first bent before straightening it out as I bent backwards; almost touching the ground. Placing both of my palms flat against the sand did I shift my weight back and swung my left leg into the air before landing back onto the ground on just the point of my right foot. I took this as a chance to spin around only twice before going into an arabesque penchée then placing both of my feet back onto the ground as I straighten my body back up.
"Very nice." Whipping around I saw the One-Eyed Dragon of Oshu leaning against a wooden pillar with his arms crossed his broad chest. "That was very nice." He repeated himself; saying the 'very nice' in English. I took to hiding behind one of the stone statues. A smug smirk graced his lips. "Why so shy?" I hid more behind the statue.
"H-How long have you been standing there?"
"Eh? Since ya swept your right arm across the air." My face grew red as I removed my hair from behind my ears so it could hide my face.
"Y-You should be resting. And it's getting pretty late. I should be doing my rounds before calling it a night." And I quickly vanished away from his sight while my heart slammed against my breast.
