Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 21:37:53 63836
Amu Hinamori had been taking care of Tadase. A lot. Since he'd gotten sick she'd come by almost every day to help him. Cleaning, a little cooking, snacks, lots and lots of cuddling. There had even been a few kisses. If he'd made a comment worrying about germs? Well, the words 'I don't mind if they're your germs...' might have been thought by Amu.

I say thought, because she would vehemothly deny saying it, her face so red it could countas a fire hydrant. The entire time her charas nodding and smirking.

What did she get out of this, you ask? She got to see her prince SICK! In pajamas and skin all flushed and weak and needing to be tended to and oh my gosh it was the cutest thing ever. Sure, there were other cute boys around, but he was the cutest of them all and he was getting pampered to death if need be.

Which led to this moment. "O-okay, you can look. Wait, don't look! Okay, look, n-no, stop, d-don't look! F-fine. you can look." She'd been doing this little song and dance about ten minutes. Finally, she'd let him look.

Amu had soup! And... was wearing... a nurses uniform. Not a sexy nurses uniform. It barely even showed her ankles. It also molded a bit to show off that she kind of lacked the curves a lot of other girls seemed to be developing.

Frankly, she probably wouldn't have gotten a second look if not for one thing.

She was still amu. Cool and spicy. And this went against her very personality she presented, her face beat red, her arms crossed, slightly swaying a bit and obviously super, duper embarrassed and acting as if she was standing here in nothing but a thong, while instead in a very mundane looking nurse's uniform. And trying to act as if she wasn't at all embarrassed. She walked over with the tray and sat down. "H-h-here. Just... just e-eat your soup..." Her face really couldn't get much redder... maybe.
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 21:51:43 63838
To be fair, a lot of Amu's 'shortcomings' in any physical department are absolutely unnoticed by the person in the room, Tadase Hotori, who looked up at her with a face that might be considered red if it wasn't so inferior in color to her own.

"Amu-chan!" Tadase notes in surprise, giving way to a smile. "You're really going all out. That's sweet of you. I have the best girlfriend." Tadase leans forwards and sips some of the soup. He's in a bad way, possibly because he keeps trying to work through the illness. Not that Amu would know anything about that sort of thing.

"I'm lucky to have you here watching out for me." And this isn't hyperbole - his sick Grandmother is in no shape to take care of him, and he really has been quite dependant on Amu. "Thank you so much."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 21:56:16 63839
Amu Hinamori blushed even redder. Oh gosh he liked it he really liked it. She totally did her happy little dance, eyes closed, big smile on her face, hands clenched and hips sway so her skirt sways. Then eeped and turned redder. Huh, she could get redder.

"W-well it's... it's kind of my fault. I mean, if I hadn't... if you hadn't held me so much when i was sick... I ummm... never would have gotten you sick."

"That and she's absolutely adoring taking care of you," Miki said.

"It's true. She thinks it's like she's already your wife." Su added.

"She even danced while making the soup," Ran 'helped'.

Amu's cheeks turned redder. "I-I'll b-b-be right back I'm going to go check on your grandma!" she squeaked, darting out and returning after a few minutes. "S-she's fine. It's good. She's resting for now." Oh gosh she hoped he forgot that. She then moved down to sit by him and squirmed. "I... I don't mind. At all. I mean. You helped take care of me. I-I'm just... returning the favor." She kept sneaking looks at his cute little flushed face.
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 22:08:57 63841
Tadase would probably be grinning more or commenting more, but the sickness really has beaten him up, which is why most of what Amu gets is a soft smile, a sort of loving look, regarding her and what her charas say. He doesn't get a chance to respond before she's ran off. But when she returns, he does.

"Well, it's just you and me here, Amu. So you don't need to be embarassed. Not like I'm going to tell anyone how sweet you've been. I wouldn't want to ruin your reputation." he adds, that half-smile breaking into more of a grin.

"But you are sweet, Amu-chan. And wonderful. And beautiful." His eyes start to droop a bit, but he's still smiling.
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 22:11:52 63842
Amu Hinamori nodded, hanging on every word. She gently took his bowl away and held the spoon. "Here. I can tell you're tired, but you need to eat something," she said softly, playing the good little nurse. Gently she started feeding him. Jsut a little in each spoonful. Her heart was hammering as she stared at him, eyes so filled with love.

Right now, there was just him. She couldn't think of anyone else. The way his cheeks were so flushed, how cute he was, how... after a bit he'd feel something other than the spoon. Instead a soft pair of lips. She blushed again. "I-I hear it helps...y-you recover," she lied, slowly proceeding to feed him again as she pulled up his covers as well, to keep him nice and warm.
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 22:18:55 63846
Tadase takes in each spoonfull of soup, almost wanting to protest for pride, but not protesting because his girlfriend is feeding him soup and it makes him feel so loved.

Between her heartbeat and his heartbeat it's a wonder it didn't sound like a percussion section tuning up in the room. And then her lips pressed against his and almost reactively his hand came up behind her head. But it was a weak, sick grip rather than normal - but it was there for just a moment, his hand running through her hair.

"You're helping me recover." Tadase looked up at her as he snuggled under the covers a bit more, wriggling a hand free to put it on top of hers.
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 22:21:59 63847
Amu Hinamori nodded, smiling gently to him. "I hope so. Though..." She put a hand to his chest, feeling his heart beat. In tune with hers. "I hope you're not miserable..."

"She wants you to be sick longer so she can take care of you," Su said with a smile. "Isn't she such a good future wife?"

Oh gosh she was THIS close to duct taping their eggs shut. She gently spoon fed him some more soup. "Ignore them. Is there... anything else you desire? Desert? Another blanket? Some fresh air? Pillows? I could go get you a movie?"
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 22:30:07 63853
Tadase shakes his head. "Even if I'm sick, I couldn't be miserable with you around." Su's comment makes him actually grin. "You know you don't need me to stay sick so you can take care of me." And now it's his turn to go fire-engine red. "You can come by and feed me whenever you want."

He takes another spoonfull of the soup. "Just stay with me, and try not to be so self-conscious?" he asks, a bit teasingly. "I know this situation isn't great but... I get to be with you. That's... really nice."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 22:33:35 63855
Amu Hinamori blinked a few times. "W-wait, really? I can?" And then her cheeks turned to match his. "I-I mean, err, if.... if you want..." Gently gave him a little more, sighing contently. "I love you, Tadase-kun," she whispered softly, laying besides him as she fed him careful not to spill anything.

"I'm so sorry I got you sick but... I'm happy I got to take care of you. I love spending all my time with you, forever..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 22:50:10 63863
Tadase puts a hand around her and squeezes her as much as he can which is still a reasonably tight hug given the sickness - maybe it's a moment of Amu-given strength. "If -you- want." Tadase clarifies. "I'm happy just being near you. Also you make better soup than I do so if you want to cook that anytime that'd be fine." he spits out in a rush.

"Well you don't have to stop being around me just because I'm going to get better!"
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 22:52:15 63864
Amu Hinamori blushed even redder. "R-really? You think so? I-I worked really hard on it! su even helped me make sure I got all the spices right and I was going to add too much salt but then she stopped me and instead I used cream of chicken and, err... I-I'm happy you like it."

She nodded. "I know. But since we've been sick we've been snuggling so much more..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 22:54:40 63865
"Well, it's also been winter and winter is the prime season for snuggling, right? It's harder to snuggle and be comfortable in the summer."

He looks up to the green floating chara. "Thank you very much for helping Amu. You two make a great team... which I guess is kinda obvious."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 22:56:55 63867
Amu Hinamori nodded. "I wouldn't mind snuggling with you in the winter..."

Su smiled. "Of course we do~ But the most important ingredient is love and Amu has just so much~"

Amu just groaned. "I am going to get some duct tape and tape them up, I swear..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 23:18:27 63875
Tadase laughs a bit. "Of course it is, Su." he says before leaning up suddenly so he can kiss Amu on the forehead.

"Don't worry about them, they're just trying to help in their own way."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 23:21:03 63876
Amu Hinamori sighs and nods. "I guess. Are you absolutely sure they're mine? I mean, I apparently can transform with any of the charas. Maybe they're someone elses and they just love to torment me," she said with a smile, before nestling up against him, gently putting the soup to the side and then pulling him in close, letting him lay his head against the nook of her arm.

"I'll make sure to keep you safe and warm forever, Tadase-kun. I promise..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 23:42:00 63883
"Hey, aren't I supposed to be the one protecting y-" Tadase doesn't even get through that idea before he has to pull away from her to avoid coughing all over her. Then he turns back. "I mean... in normal circumstances, I guess. Doesn't look like I can do much protecting right now."

"No, I'm sure they're yours, because I can see peices of what I love so much about you in each of them."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 23:45:06 63885
Amu Hinamori squirmed a little. How did he know what to say right when she needed it? She held him close, nuzzlign the top of his head. "And you do. You keep me safe all the time. Safe, secure, happy, loved. Everything I need. But... now you need me, so it's my turn, my king..." she whispered so softly.

She glanced to them and nodded. "I guess that's true.Even if they are brats..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 23:46:32 63888
Tadase is not the smartest or most suave boy around. But even he knows not to point out that sometimes Amu is a brat too. Not while he's dependant on her and there's hot soup nearby, anyways. So his mouth just crooks up ever so slightly.

"I always need you, it's just really easy for you to see right now."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 23:49:08 63889
Amu Hinamori nodded, holding him so close. "Your hair smells so nice," she whispers. Annnnd got red again.

"Again with the smells, amu?" Ran said with a snicker.

"She just thinks he smells pretty," Su said with a snicker of her own.

Amu just blushed. Well, oh well. He was her king. There were other kings, but this one was her. "I... I want to be like this, though. I think... more like... this. Feeling this way..."
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-16 23:51:23 63891
"You're the only girl strong enough to protect me that also needs my protection too." Tadase admits quietly, perhaps an artifact of the illness. "You're the only girl who can be both. That's one of the reasons I love you."

"You can stay here with me as long as you want. You shouldn't ever have to feel any different."
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-16 23:53:02 63892
Amu Hinamori cringed. well, yeah, she was weaker than all of the other... oh. Then he said that. She grinned. "And you always make me feel amazing... And I mean... dedicated. Focused. Taking care of you has been wonderful, Tadase-kun. and... having you take care of me. I've felt so... focused, for once. I knew what I wanted, without any second guessing and... it's been nice. Thank you." One more gentle, loving kiss.
Tadase Hotori 2016-12-17 00:02:47 63895
Tadase does as much as he can to return the kiss, but the heart-pounding situations (and Nurse Amu) have somewhat compounded with his sickness and his eyes are having a harder time staying open.

"Thank you, Amu-chan. I'm going to rest now." he says, more as a warning than anything else, as he snuggles back down under the series of blankets Amu has put him in.
Amu Hinamori 2016-12-17 00:03:59 63896
Amu Hinamori nodded and then nestled up against him and... even slid under the covers with him. Purely to keep him warm. And to hold him. Pressed against him, holding her to him. "I'll keep you company... like you did me," she whispers gently, nestling in and ready to sleep as well.
