Casually walks over and sits on his back. She’s probably much, much lighter than usual.
"Good morning Brother, enjoy the fall?" Akura joked before reaching into her pocket and producing a white tin, holding it out "Here, take one" she’s comfy though and isn’t moving on her own.
“Yes it was quite enjoyable especially when that rock stabbed into my stomach.” He returned with a large sarcastic response, although he wasn’t bleeding at the moment thank god or Nanami would probably have a fit. “Brother I appreciate you but I would like for you to get off of me so this rock doesn’t keep bothering my rib cage.”
Takes the medicine anyways and swallows it down with out water. She was lighter and Easily got up to his feet and unlike last time let her slide down slowly off of his body to the ground.
Adorable Tomoe *_*
Don’t post shit without its source, I swear to god I am going to explode at this fandom and punch it in its face.
Accidentally fell asleep in the tree he was relaxing in…
Is now regretting said decision since he rolled over and is now on the ground.
Massive headache alert coming through——
At first, Akura just wanted to use this Tomoe, to hurt him as apart of revenge. However he realized over time that this was still his Tomoe, and apart of him wanted to go back and live in bliss, as much as he knew now how stupid he had been all those years ago.
Leaning her head in her hands she sighed. “I’m going to sound bitter, but if Nanami wants you to change yourself to be with her… Does she really love you then?” she bit on her finger nail.
Wasn’t saying things like this, saying things that hurt him how she lost Tomoe the first time? It was such a hard habit to drop though. “When she looks at you does she just see him? You might want to ask her this, does she really loves you, or what you could become, because there’s a difference when it comes to humans” No she was listening.
"Tomoe… You’re my brother. I’m not mad at you, I’m mad at the other fox." she held up a finger, finally turning her head to look at him. "I wont be touching her anymore, she’s your mate and that’s absolute" no sorry though, she’s still too prideful to think she’s at fault. "I can’t even touch her anyway, any time I try my body freezes up" Akura sighed, her head drooping slightly "You were the only person that I trusted in the world… I’m slowly learning to trust you again because you’re not the one who betrayed me. It’s not fair if I hold my grudge against you, right? It’s just hard, you’re different, but the same face."
"You should definitely talk to her, why does she have any say in who you see or what you do? If she truely loves you, you should be free to do what makes you happy"
That goes for Akura as well “… Just don’t leave me. I don’t care what you do, but I couldn’t handle it if you left me for her, just as the other one did.” she’s not sure what she’d do…
But it wouldn’t be pretty. It would be shame on him for being fooled twice though.
Tomoe wanted that as well and doubted even now that they could go back to that. But at least they could talk about this now. However Tomoe didn’t want to loose Nanami’s love nor did he want to leave Akura— but what would he do if push came to shove? Most likely it seemed now that he would take the road down with the human girl who gave him so much happiness although in the end she would just die and heart break would over take him again. Tomoe took back his pen and pad but did not continue.
"She does Akura, she loves me very much." Tomoe responded without even a lick of hesitation to his Brother. But he could tell now that at the beginning that Akura was just using him because they did not know each other. The questions that were being thrown at him did not even effect him this time, unquestionably he was sure. And he loved her as the most precious thing in the world to him. "No she only sees me, why do you think she’s addressing me on the problem? Brother she doesn’t want to change everything about me, only how I thrive for violence. I won’t change the way she wants me to be but how I want to be, that is the only thing I need to curb."
There were many times he could have gotten himself killed lately, especially that human fox who grew angry at his tongue. But Kurama had brought it upon himself that time for being such a hypocrite. “I know. I wish you told me this sooner rather than have kept me in the dark.” Tomoe admitted his disappointment but smiled when Akura said that Nanami was his mate was absolute. Close enough to an apology as it was going to get though. “I understand, that sounds fair.”
"We both can learn to trust each other again and neither keep grudges." He had only spotted the other fox once and he had noticed how alike they were oddly enough. The only difference was their hair length. The transformed Tomoe had cut his hair to symbolize moving to a new life while this Tomoe was still a wild fox slightly domesticated. "I will, but I am just trying to keep from loosing both of you."
Tomoe knew it, Akura was lonely as well. Akura had nobody yet Tomoe gained others in his life as he went along. Nodding he responded, “Even if we are parted I will never leave you. I will always be with you as your Brother until we see each other again.” He didn’t know what the other one had done to leave Akura. But it must have involved Nanami, a woman…
But he knew he didn’t want to leave Akura alone.
nanami-kami asked: The Land Goddess slept with her head on his chest, comfortably listening to his heartbeat. She slept with the thought of waking up and finding the yokai smiling besides her, but instead she was awakened by noises of discomfort, slowly turning louder. "What's wron--uh, Tomoe?" Nanami leaned against the pillow immediately, utterly worried by the painful expression on his face. She raised her voice considerably, softly slapping his face. "TOMOE! What is happening? Are you dreaming? Tomoe, wake up!"
Running—— he was running. Legs vigorously at work, the muscle straining as he could feel the movements pull and tug, and feet slamming onto the floor. Sweat trickling down his not so immortal flesh leaving a cool streak in its wake. What was he running from? The panic and the fear felt all to real yet he did not know what it was. It had pulled him back before, attack him and pull him apart. And for once in the darkness he could not see not even five inches before him, the darkness shadowing everything.
Heart racing, hot breathe coming from his mouth. He’s coming to get me— It’s coming to get me. While out of his dream state his body twitched, his tail moved and his ears flickered but silent squeaks and grunts pulled from his gut. A tug was felt gripped onto his arm, a hand of sorts it seemed was pulling him back as he tried to scream. But nothing came from his throat, legs turning to mush, collapsing only to be held up.
Grasped by a million hands, clamped around some part of his body pulling him back. Scratching at him. Yanking at his limbs and clothes, desperate to pull him back into the darkness as he tried to scream. His voice didn’t reach out to anyone. Tomoe was afraid, he was afraid and the terror was real. Pull by pull the hands opened his body up and ripped him apart and the pain only got worse and his breathing became labored. Every single peace of his body that was ripped away and pulled open he felt. His teeth gritted together and his fangs pierced his lips making a trail of blood fall from the corner.
“Ｔｏｍｏｅ" Eyes shot open—
The sudden shock of his name awoken him and he looked around the room, suddenly feeling his body. Just a dream it was just a dream. Returning his breathing to normal he realized that he had fallen asleep next to Nanami last night for the first time… What a ruined experience he gave her. Rubbing his forehead he looked up to her and returned his breathing to normal. An angel, right now she looked like nothing more than angel.
"Nanami— I’m sorry," he finally spoke. "I had a nightmare." Reaching up his hand went to her face and brushed his fingers against her cheek. What a beautiful angel she was indeed, a guardian angel watching over him. "I ruined it, your dream of how you would first wake up to me." He finally said, "I am sorry for that too…" Pause. "You look very beautiful."
Countless chills ran through Nanami’s body. For the first time around him, Nanami found herself terribly afraid; to see him waking up bathed in sweat, staring the ceiling with such a terrified expression was one of the most uncomfortable things Nanami had been through. The air was cold and her pupils were wide open, just like her mouth.
Deep dark circles were visible under his violet hues, which seemed to penetrate her by a mere glimpse. The Land Goddess couldn’t even imagine him sleeping and whispering, terrified, trying to escape from his own mind, being unable to accept her help. She couldn’t imagine Tomoe in such a vulnerable position.
His hand was trembling and completely gelid as her lover stroked her cheek. What’s wrong, Tomoe?, she wanted to question, but that would be fully useless. Recovering herself and feeling her own heartbeats stabbing her chest, Nanami crawled up next to him.
"—No," Nanami denied, hoping her voice would sound calm, warm and firm, not exasperated. "You haven’t ruined anything, Tomoe. That is okay. It is not even morning yet, that’s okay." She wouldn’t be able to sleep anymore, at least until he closed his eyes and felt safe once more.
The Earth Deity planted a kiss on his lips, being careful when touching him. In the end, she held his hand, kneeling on the bed to face him properly. “I am worried, honey. What happened? Are you alright?”
Turning his head towards her once more hearing his name called out by the female. It was genuine she was worried about him and scared for what he was going through. The thought made him warm inside to think about that she cared for him. That she wanted to hold him and make him feel alright but he was grateful for everything even when her chocolate brown eyes expanded with worry. Rubbing her cheek he tried to regulate his breathing, not even noticing he was shaking as hard as he was.
"It’s alright Nanami, everything is fine. It was just a dream, just a dream—" Towards the end he repeated and felt his shaky breathe waver as he tried to calm himself. It was odd to feel this weak by something that didn’t even happen in real life, something he found himself afraid of within a dream. Just a dream and he found himself even more tired than before, vulnerable, weak… how pitiful.
"You look so scared…" He trailed off as he started to speak, his ears twitched and his tail swayed. Probably looking awful now he felt awful even, the trembling was dying down but he could feel it pound through his veins. Tomoe had scared her enough to keep her awake and for that he felt even more sick with an ache. "It isn’t?" he questioned as she said it wasn’t morning, "Ah well…"
Soft lips pressed against his, ah what a sweet woman he had. How he felt so lucky to have her, as if the dream didn’t even matter anymore as with reality he had an even sweeter dream. His arms went around her and pressed back, squeezing her tightly just to hold her is what he wanted.
Hearing her call out to him like that, ‘honey’— Honey. It brought a happy chuckle from his lips as he smiled at her, she called him a pet name. What a rush of excitement and happiness he felt as the chuckle immediately fell down to a loose smile as reality of everything came back. But still he was shaking still terrified of what the dream had just showed him of his own cruel damning death. As much as he tried to breathe, to shake everything off before him he was nothing more than bathing in sweat. Before her he was nothing more than a terrified fox, and he was still terrified.
"I am fine Nanami, just shaking and my heart won’t settle it seems. Must have snoozed off when you crawled in for bed. I had a night mare, it was violent and I haven’t had one since i was a child. But thank you for waking me up dear, I needed to be woken up." He gave her a smile.
With the morning cold, but sunlight peaking through the clouds; the half demon thought some honey tea would be lovely for this type of weather. After receiving work from Tenko that he was going out for the day. Of course he knew it was for their god and he didn’t question it at all. After changing and wandering into the kitchen; he felt a slight sensation that he wasn’t alone. Remembering that Tenkos best friend or brother was living with them. Placing some water into a pot and allowed the water to boil. Bringing out some tea bags, Ritsu slightly jumped when he heard a sudden voice.
"O-Oh, I’m making some honey tea. Would you like some?" He asked with a small smile as he poured the honey tea leaves into a tea pot and added the boiling water. Bring the tea pot onto the table, Ritsu grabbed two cups and poured the tea into the cup.
They often called each other Brothers but definitely the other Kitsune was his best friend. Although Tomoe wasn’t the one to be respectful to their ‘god’ and hated when Inari pushed Tenko too hard. The messenger was all the more happy to do his job and Tomoe could not argue with that logic as long as he was fine with doing so. Inari and the stubborn rebellious fox did not get along quite well but well enough to some degree where Tomoe a wild fox was able to live under the roof of a shrine. It was more like tolerance on the part of Inari and who cared about one of his messengers even though the friend he had strayed from the path of the god he was to ‘work for’.
Large ears perked up at the hearing of Ritsu’s voice. Humming he remembered that Ritsu was a half breed much like what if he had children with his human lover. Still he didn’t know what to make of the other as his tail swayed, “Sure, I’ll have a cup.” He wasn’t exactly the most polite fox, “You’re Ritsu right?” Just making sure.
She raised an eyebrow, had Nanami really said that? “Why’s that?” she asked, curious now. You could see the anger start to for on her face, and just how hard she was trying to hide it, but clearly failing. What had Nanami said? Why was Tomoe suddenly banned from seeing her? A familiar fire burned in her stomach, her eyes closing slightly.
-He’s going to leave again.
"Hm?" she snapped out of her thoughts, only to frown "I’m not much of a flirt am I?" Akura-Ou was always straight to the point there was no point in flirting. Although she wasn’t moving either, she was kind of comfy.
And feeling really possessive.
Being booted out of his lap the oni rolled onto her stomach, just deciding to lay there with her stomach against the cold floor. Akura was suddenly quiet as she stared at the wall, away from Tomoe. “You shouldn’t have to do it in secret though”
Those words wouldn’t stop repeating in her head, her face going blank. That’s how it was destined to be, right? Just when she thought she had her brother back, that he was different and not worth his hate…
Ah maybe that wasn’t a very good idea to tell her this now, covering his eyes he rubbed them as he tried to think. Nanami thought Akura was poisonous to him but now Akura was in a position where he wasn’t that so— right? Tomoe didn’t want to leave either as he loved both in their own ways but Nanami’s words run in his head. It’s true he couldn’t keep going on violently as he had been. Confused he felt his head pound seeing her angry face as he stared back a bit surprised.
"Ah, It’s something old." Tomoe told her, "The snake familiar she had made me angry and told me that you only used me. You never loved me as your Brother and it made me angry, so I beat him up on several different occasions and there were times where I thought so. But I know that you do care about me, I know that." Or so he hoped that Akura did so, because they wouldn’t be talking now if that was the case. The charade would have been over as Akura was honest, very honest.
If Akura didn’t try to come onto him like that then perhaps he would have let her stay. Tomoe didn’t want any of that as he had Nanami even though they were waiting to do something like that in the future. “I don’t want to do it in secret either, but—” he cut himself off as his ears bent back and he crawled to her side. “What I realized is that I have a lot to work on myself. I’m a terrible person, I’m very lost and I felt alone.”
"Nanami said she couldn’t love me if I kept being this way, if I kept being a poison. But truly and deeply I love her and really I started to doubt if she even loved me or loved that other fox.” Yeah he knows about another, Nanami considered him different even though he killed so many people. But was he really? “I didn’t know if you actually loved me as a brother, or trust you anymore for what you almost did to Nanami that night and what you wanted me to do to her. But I know now that you both love me and I wish to trust again.”
"What she told me back there is true but also a lie, she told me I was different even though I killed so many people. I’m just as terrible, and I don’t wish to leave your side. I do not want to leave you alone like I was alone for so long without you." Tomoe paused as he wondered if Akura was even listening to him. But this fox was cornered and he didn’t know what to do. It was either secretly see Akura, or tell Nanami he was still seeing Akura—— "I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to loose you both, I’m the happiest I have ever been in so long…." Pausing for a moment.
"I might try and talk to her again about it…" Akura was angry wasn’t she?
"You need to spend more time with me" she sighed, reaching out to grab his journal and pencil. She was sure to book mark his page before moving to lay down in his lap, laughing a bit as he asked if she was on anything.
"Nope, completely sober brother" she smiled, reaching up to pat at his cheek "Unless handsome is a drug" okay being a woman was kind of fun, watching men’s reaction was pretty funny. "I mean, if you really think I’m on something you could kiss me and find out" he had Nanami, he didn’t expect him to even consider such a thing.
"I’m serious about you needing to spend more time with me though" she reached over, tugging on his obi.
“I will spend more time with you, however Nanami doesn’t wish for me to see you so I will have to keep it secret— But I will not spend time with you in this way.” He sounded a bit annoying towards the end as his journal and pen were taken from him. Now having her in his lap there was a low grumble in his throat as he was becoming uncomfortable with the situation. After all Nanami was his mate and love, she knew that.
But she was probably doing this to see his reaction. Though he wondered what would happen if they had met each other if one of them was a woman and the other the opposite sex. “Brother your flirting is like biting into cheese, no I am not going to kiss you and I would like you to get out of my lap before I force you out.” He’s not happy about Akura crawling into his lap like this. Either his brother really wants something or he’s doing this for the reaction… most likely for the latter than the other.
"And I said I would," Akura took her hands and pulled them away from his obi before he forced her out of his lap and with a huff and a thump of his tell he booted her.
"I wouldn’t have a clue-" the demon leaned foward, letting out a cough, a much more feminine groan coming from his direction. He had been trying to hiding it, which was why she was sitting where she couldn’t see him but it was just to much work to make her voice that low.
Oh well. Akura moved, leaning against his back, her chest pressing up against him, slender arms wrapped around his neck as she looked at what he was writing down “That’s a lot of gifts you’re getting Tomoe” she pressed a light kiss to the side of his head.
"You can be mine, how about that?" She just wanted to see him freak out.
And there came the femanine groan. That’s why her back felt a bit more tinier than usual although she still had broad shoulders. Although he could already guess what happened to Akura since it happened to him and well the rest of it is history. Thankfully it was over soon enough and he became his normal self and so would Akura soon enough. So Tomoe didn’t freak out when he found out through the groan and the cough, guessing that it was too much on Akura to keep her voice so low.
Soon he felt two soft pads pressing against his back, oddly enough he had sexual tolerance towards some females. He was a flirt indeed but he only had eyes on Nanami for such things right now and the thought of his brother well, unthinkable. “It’s mainly ideas for which I can go on. It’s hard to find something that suits N—” And there was the kiss. The Kitsune turned around and saw his well Sister now.
Smelling the air he bluntly stated, “Are you drunk— no wait, your breathe is sober. Are you on something?” Yes internally he was freaking out and quite weirded out. You could see it in his eyes as he stared into Akura’s own golden eyes.
"Daaaaaddy" she whined, managing to squirm her way out of his grip, although she ended up rolling head over heels, landing nicely on her butt.
"Uwaah! I’m a big girl. Why can’t I know?" she scurries back over to Momo, wanting to look.
"Uhm….." Quickly she puts the pornography away, watching the young girl come closer. "Maybe we should do something else.."
Tomoe was tempted to burn it but the child put it away, severely disappointed in you Momoko number one. Severely disappointed with you. He grew scared as his daughter wormed out of his arms, “Momoko this isn’t something you need to see even though your a big girl. It’s only something adults should see.”
"Yes you should do something else, something that involves playing outside or a game indoors." He’s going to be watching you both very closely now.
