"What have we here? I assume you're from an alternate universe, all things considering. With that said, hello, Yuuko San." He looked this woman up and down before crossing his legs and blowing a line of pipe smoke out. "Care for some Sake?"
"Ah, Watanuki…" Yuuko tilted her head slightly, a smile creeping onto her face.
She allowed a slight chuckle escape from her lips.
“Yes, I would say that is so…” Her smile grew.
"Why, of course ~ I could never pass up sake !"
"There was a time you and… her… took a trip to another city, do you remember? There was a woman who I blogged with from time to time. She had an addiction to her computer, and asked for help? Remember what I told her, Watanuki. It was entirely up to her whether or not she would stop. Think of all the reason you want to quit these addictions, Watanuki. Your friend may be helping, but you’re the only one who can pull yourself out of this slump. Keep that in mind." The woman smiled gently at him. She wasn’t about to let herself cry. It pained her to see such a sweet person end up like this. Though, she had faith that he would be able to get through it. Then again, what is supposed to happen is bound to happen. Yuuko hoped this was not it.
“I hope you and Shizuka have an excellent day tomorrow. It’s supposed to be sunny, perhaps you two should take a trip to the park.”
"Yes I remember, you’re right, I guess I should take a moment and relax." He took a drag of his pipe, staring at the metal. She was right. He would need to list over all the reasons why he needed to stop. He didn’t have a child to care for, but he had a shop to look after, a lover to be with, and friends he wanted to help.
"Mm maybe we /should/ go to the park, ill pack a lunch and we could have a picnic," he blushed at the thought. "It would be just like back in highschool." He held his cheek, the seer was not that old, but highschool was a time when he was his happiest. "I sound like I’m an old man." Chuckling as he let his hands slide down his long legs. "Don’t look like it though," He smirked. "Shizuka can confirm that." The seer let a laugh escape him.
"You need all the relaxation you can get," Yuuko leaned farther back into her chair as she continued to watch him. She was glad Watanuki had found some happiness with Shizuka, and in the shop.
"You were all so lively back then, hm… I don’t want to hear you saying that you sound old." Yuuko laughed softly. "You still have quite a while. Do you plan on ever having a family with Shizuka? Perhaps a child could help get things off your mind. I know you brightened up quite a few of my days."
"A family? W-well I’ve thought about it, I mean Id like to have a child with him, but I don’t know. Shizuka is wary, uh we both-both know that if we have a child I might outlive both of them. And that’s just not something I think I can handle." His smile faded into a small frown. A child. In theory it sounded fine, something he and Shizuka could have together. But until his Yuuko came, he’d be in the shop, alive. He didn’t know how long that’d be. Not only would he lose Shizuka, he’d lose his-their child.
“Although, we do consider each other to be married.” The seer smiled. “Silly isn’t it?”
"Ah, I understand…" Yuuko tapped her chin gently before crossing her legs over one another.
"Quite a difficult situation. I’m sure you two will figure it out. You always were excellent at working together."
The woman smiled at Watanuki as she remembered all the silly tasks she’d sent the two boys to complete together. She always knew they’re worked well as a duo. It made her happy knowing they were still together.
"It isn’t silly at all, in fact, I think it’s wonderful."
"Hopefully, Shizuka suggested we get a pet or something as immortal as I am, you should’ve seen the way Mugetsu looked at me," He giggled, setting the bottle down. "He thought id forgotten about him! Hahah he wouldn’t interact with me for a day! But Shizuka said it’d be ok for now, he’d love me enough for three people, but we were talking with Kohane, in case he’d need an heir to his ‘job’."
He bit his thumb nail, playing with one of his earrings. “He’s always worrying, I guess I’m to blame, but it’s sweet really. He always makes sure to give me a kiss before he leaves for work, even if he has to wake me up.” The seer tilted his head. “Enough about me though! How have you been?”
