The sunlight shone through the lime-coloured blind, a brunette woman stood near smiling at the light as she washed the dirty plate her boyfriend had left in the bowl.
“I really hope things are on the up for us,” Tohru sighed to herself, Kyo was the perfect guy for her, he always had been even if the couple hadn’t realised themselves until a few years back.
She chuckled to herself remembering the day she met him at Shigure’s house when Kyo had damaged her ceiling, “Things have really changed.” She smiled finishing the washing up.
The young woman only had time to pick up a tea-towel to dry her soapy hands when the doorbell rung.
Tohru ran to the door quickly, forgetting to remove her apron before opening the wooden door with a huge smile on her face.
“Hey Kiddo,” a blonde haired woman stood with a canvas tote over her shoulder, with a little brunette girl gripping tight of her free hand.
“Tohru-kun!” the little girl squealed, breaking free of her mothers’ grip, running to Tohru and hugging her hips tightly. Tohru noticed she was holding her favourite ginger cat and grey rat teddies that she had made herself.
“Hey that’s Auntie to you!” her mother called.
“Hey little one, I see you brought those teddies I made you.” she giggled, “It’s okay she can call me what she wishes.”
“I sure did,” the little lady spoke trying to sound like an adult. The adults chuckled together at the innocent child.
“Ou-chan! It’s lovely to see you again,” Tohru beamed with happiness.
“You too,” the blonde smiled, walking into the house.
“Make yourself at home, I’ll put the kettle on and grab Kyoko some toys!” she called, pressing the switch on the wall before disappearing out of the room briefly.
Arisa took a sit at the dining table, she placed her bag on the wood and watched her little girl playing with her animal teddies.
In a flash Kyoko was joined by Tohru in the living room, she was holding a small basket of toys. It was full with dolls, teddies and a pink plastic tea set that she her grandfather gave to her (from her childhood). The young woman had kept it, in hope of having her own child running around by now, but having little Kyoko around was just as fun.
*Click* The kettle sounded it was ready to make tea.
Tohru finished setting up the tea set for the little lady before returning to the kitchen to make hot drinks for the adults.
“Ou-chan, would you like tea or coffee?” she smiled.
“Tea with just one sugar please,” the blonde replied.
The brunette opened the white varnished cupboards, and placed two yellow mugs on the unit. She dropped a teabag in each before adding two sugars to one, and one to the other. She filled the mug with hot water, stirring carefully before adding the milk.
Arisa watched as Kyoko was attempting to copy Tohru, she had even got homemade teabags that she placed into mugs before adding ‘pretend’ hot water and milk.
“Mummy look what I did!” she shouted, holding up one of the mugs and the teapot.
“Oh Kyoko. You’re so clever, watch you don’t spill it!” her mother chuckled as Tohru placed a hot mug infront of her, and taking a seat at the head of the table.
“Right Kiddo, talk to me.” She said sternly.
“About?” the young woman asked innocently, taking a sip from her mug.
“When are you and Ginge gonna tie the knot and make a little person?” Arisa said in a more joking manner, making Tohru choked a little on her tea, “Have you even thought or spoken about it?”
The brunette cleared her throat, “I have been thinking about it a lot. He’s definitely the guy I could spend my whole life with, but you know how he can be…”
“Stubborn, annoying. Yes, shall I continue the list?” Ou-chan joked.
“You know what I mean. I could imagine it, a little person running around. If it was a little boy, I’m sure Kyo would make him train beside him. I would love to have either, but a little girl that I could dress-up and do her hair. You know like I do for Kyoko,” she smiled.
“Have you spoken to him about this?” the blonde repeated her question before taking a sip of tea, glancing over at her daughter. She was busy feeding her teddies cakes.
“No. If I am honest I’m a little worried too.” Tohru replied.
“I’m not sure how he would react…”
“I know he can be a hot-head, but I don’t think he would get mad or anything like that. He loves you, it’s obvious he does. Even a stranger walking down the road would see that.” Arisa smiled.
“Do you think I should say something?” the brunette asked.
“Why don’t you this evening at dinner?”
“He’s popping over to see Shigure, I think he said Hatori and Yuki would be there too. He said he wanted to talk to them,” Tohru smiled.
“Did he say what about?” Ou-chan asked.
The young woman shook her head, “I didn’t ask either.”
“Well ask him when he gets back. Just make hints and suggestions, nothing to major that you feel may scare him a bit.” The blonde smiled, “It’ll be fine trust me, Kiddo.”
“I do,” Tohru smiled.
