The sun shone brighter, the warmth radiated off him. A ginger-haired man walked out of a wooden building, stretching out his muscles.
“You did good today, Kyo.” another man, much taller than the cat, with his arms folded across his chest, followed him.
“Oh Master,” Kyo smiled looking at the man.
“I’m very proud of you, you’ve come along way. Say why you rushing off so fast?” Kazuma asked.
“I’ve gotta get home to Tohru. I need to ask her something important, but I need Shigure’s, Yuki’s and Hatori’s advice first.’
“What about me? Don’t you want my advice?” the older male asked, taking a seat on the grass.
“I’m afraid it will sound to silly,” Kyo replied, frowning slightly.
“I’ve never laughed at you since I started fostering you, why should now be any different?” Kazuma asked.
The ginger sighed, “You know how me and Tohru have been together for almost 4 years now?”
“I want to ask for her hand,” Kyo said softly just so his master could hear but no one else.
“I see,” the older male pondered, “Have you been thinking about this for some time?”
The cat nodded.
“Have you spoken to her about it?”
He shook his head.
“I think if she really means that much to do, then do it son,” Kazuma smiled, grating Kyo with his blessing, “Oh Kyo. I should of given this to you a while back, but now it seems more fitting to give it to you now then ever.” He rummaged around his pocket and pulled out a sapphire velvet box, “Please take this. It’s your mothers’ ring. She wanted you to have it.”
“Thank you, Master.” Kyo bowed, accepting the box, “I will see you tomorrow.” He turned, walking out the gate of the dojo.
“Take care!” his master called out after him, waving.
~At Shigures house~
“So Kyo, what did you need to talk to all us about?” Shigure asked walking into the room with a tray of hot tea.
“Promise you won’t laugh?” the cat asked.
“Promise,” Yuki called out first, picking a cup off the tray and filling it with tea.
“Sure thing,” the dog grinned.
“You have my word,” Hatori nodded.
“I want to ask for Tohru’s hand,” Kyo blurted out. The room fell silent. Too silent, “Someone say something, please.”
“Well, if that’s what you want to do, then do it.” Shigure smiled, “I remembered when I asked Akito to move in with me. I was panicking so much before, and now I just look back and laugh. There was no reason I should of be worried or nervous.”
“Maybe it’s because you’ve mean alone for so many years,” Hatori joked.
“I had Yuki, Kyo and Tohru lived with me for a good few years, I’ll have you know!” the dog defended himself, joking back.
“But there was just too much male attention for his liking,” Yuki smurked, sipping his tea.
Kyo couldn’t help but to smile as he took a sip of his hot drink.
“But in all seriousness now, I think you and Tohru are perfect for eachother,” Shigure replied.
“If you really love her then ask for her hand, like I did with Machi.” The rat smiled.
“I want to be happy, just like you.” Kyo stated.
“Then do what you think is right,” Hatori replied, “And if that means asking for Tohru’s hand then do it.”
“Kazuma gave me my mothers ring,” the ginger haired male stated, “And his blessing. I love Tohru more than anything. I think tonight I will ask her, as soon as I get in!” he punched the air.
“Sounds like a plan,” Shigure smiled, sipping his tea.
Kyo looked at his watched, “Dammit I’m gona be late for dinner!”
The three Sohma’s laughed.
“I’ll catch you guys later,” the cat smiled, showing himself out the door.
“Good luck,” his cousins called out after him.
A set of keys clashing against the door, one sucessfully unlocked him. Kyo pushed the door open, rucksack on his back and a bouquet in his hand.
“Onigiri, you home?” he called, wiping then removing his shoes, dumping his back beside them.
“I’m in the living room!” a female voice shouted back at him.
The cat walked from the hallway and into the living room, he saw Tohru picking up the toys she had got out for Kyoko.
“You’re home,” she smiled, placing the full basket by the bookcase, walking over to Kyo and giving him a little kiss, “Flowers?”
“For you,” her lover smiled back, kissing her softly.
“Dinners almost ready. I hope you’re hungry,” Tohru giggled, taking the flowers from his grasp.
“I sure am,” the cat laughed.
“Good,” the young woman skipped off into the kitchen, placing the flowers in a water-filled vase.
“Say Onigiri,” Kyo started, “I need to ask you something, can you come here a second?”
“Sure thing,” she smiled returning to the room, placing the vase on the table, “What’s up?”
The cat cleared his throat as he positioned himself on one knee, the sapphire velvet box in his hand.
“Tohru Honda, will you do the honour of being my wife?” he asked, opening the box revealing a silver diamond and sapphire ring, his eyes sparkling.
