I have no idea if I'll ever be able to finish 100 situations - knowing my gift to procrastinate anytime and anywhere - so I'm sneaking around.

May I introduce you to the community [livejournal.com profile] 100_situations and table 03 which looks awesomely spiffy!

Author's Notes: AU love!



The storm was raging outside and he'd forgotten to take an umbrella with him. Again. And she was pretty sure that it was raining where he was as much as it was raining here - she'd checked the weather forecast earlier that morning.

Knowing Lantis, the chances of him bothering with such an insignificant detail were close to zip and fast decreasing with each minute. It was after all a week long mission only. And the last one he would be accepting in the coming months.

She patted her - still - flat stomach fondly and sipped her tea, trying to find comfort in the minty flavor that tickled her nose and the pleasant heat that warmed her fingers.

It didn't work. Hum. Maybe she'd been without her husband for far too long. These days, it had become glaringly obvious that she hated sleeping alone in their bed. It felt strange not being able to curl into his body anymore...

Hikaru tapped her fingers against the windowsill and tried to remember why she wasn't with Lantis...doing what she'd been doing for the last seven - interesting - years of her life.

1. She was three months pregnant.
2. Incidentally, her job consisted of hurting bad guys, guarding good guys and every other little trick in the trade.
3. Most of her assignments usually ended up in gunshots, sword fights - classic was better - and gruesome bloody scenes.

Hikaru blinked and twirled a strand of red around her fingers thoughtfully, pulling the warm sweater over her bare legs for more warmth...

Oh...right. Now she remembered why he had nearly locked her in their home and ordered her not to follow him via car, bus or any other contraption she could think of.

A sigh. Another sip.

But that didn't mean that she liked knowing he was fighting alone while she was sitting here - she'd scrubbed the floors, cooked enough for any army, cleaned everything there was to clean at least twice, and made an impressive amount of coffee she wasn't allowed to drink - doing nothing. She felt...useless.

What if Lantis was hurt? He had told her that he wouldn't call before he'd left, because for this last mission he couldn't take the risk of anyone tracing it back to her...but what if his phone was broken and he was caught somewhere? There were a lot of ifs to worry for. She bit her lip and tried to remember that her husband was virtually unbeatable and really strong. After all, the first time they'd met, he'd saved her from being cut to ribbons by that maniac...

The lock clicked and she scrambled to get to the door, nearly tripping over herself and almost breaking her cup in her haste, half trepidation, half radiance. If he was coming through the front door - and truly, only they had keys - then it meant that everything had ended well.

Hurray!

"Welcome back!" She intoned breathlessly, forcing herself to not latch herself to him in the exhausted condition he was. Hard, especially with the conflicting mood swings ravaging her system already, but not impossible.

Lantis smiled down and, dropping his bag on the floor carelessly, pulled her into a bone crushing hug.

He smelled like rain, electricity and spicy cedar from his favorite soap and Hikaru inhaled deeply, feeling fully relaxed for the first time in many days.

"It's good to be home."
