Title: Pick Me Up
Author: ekas
Theme: 2. Pick Me Up
Fandom: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
Pairing: Kurogane/Mokona
Word Count: 496
Disclaimer: I don't own the characters. I also decided to refer to Mokona as "she" as it was easier, and the white one does wear the female uniform in Horitsuba. Oh, this is sheer and utter fluff.

From the very beginning, Mokona had decided that Kurogane was special. He was sulky and big and far too easy to traumatize in those early days. Mokona had immediately developed a soft spot for Kurogane, a soft spot that had gradually evolved into a deep attachment which led her to constantly try to capture the ninja’s attention. Sure the others were special as well: Sakura was soft to cuddle with and gave her sweets, Syaoran would dote on her whenever necessary, and Fai was Fai, playful, affectionate, cuddly, a good partner in crime when it came to teasing Kurogane, and good for kisses when the ninja was clearly not the kissing type. Mokona was also aware that Fai was her biggest rival in gaining Kurogane’s attentions as the ninja spent a good deal of his time yelling at or chasing down the mage. But she never really felt threatened by Fai as the mage could not crawl around in Kurogane’s clothes and the human versus not-human argument never crossed her mind. She was not exactly sure when her attachment to Kurogane had grown into something akin to human love, but she did know the warrior was special to her in the way Syaoran was special to Sakura.

The current world they had landed in was caught in a torrential downpour, the ground already covered in an inch or two of water, and within a few minutes the humans’ clothes were soaked and clinging to their bodies. Without finding a proper shelter, they all huddled together under a tree which didn’t help the fact that Mokona was standing in far too much water for her comfort. She tried to scramble up Kurogane’s leg, but his clothes were too slick and she only got to his knee before sliding back to the water with a small splash.

“Kuro-rin, pick me up?” she asked, latching her paws onto his boot. If she sat on his feet, she was out of the water, but she wanted to be closer to him. Touching booted feet was so impersonal. Kurogane seemed to ignore her.

“Mokona, Sakura-chan and I will hold you,” Fai offered, extending his hand to her from where he was pressed tightly against Kurogane’s side. Fai was warm, but she really wanted Kurogane to hold her.

“Kurogane, pick me up,” she begged, trying to jump onto his clothes again. “If Mokona gets washed away by the rain, we won’t be able to travel anymore.”

“Tch, so troublesome,” he complained as he bent down to scoop her into his arm. She sighed as she snuggled into the crook of his muscular arm. She thought it might not be so bad to continue traveling with them as long as she could be with the family and get occasional attention from the brooding ninja. He made her happy.

Even though Fai might be the mother and Kurogane might be the father of their little family, Mokona had no objections to being Kurogane’s mistress.
