“A date, huh? Where do you wanna go?”
“What about that curry place that just opened?”
“Good. Do you.. mind if I keep you close to me for a little while?”
“Absolutely!” He cheered from inside the case, knocking against the metal to make a small pang. He was just happy to be needed again. “What do you need me to do, Master?”
“Just to be here,” she answered with a smile, walking to the couch where she laid down on it. “I’ll make dinner in a bit.. what would you like?” she asked.
She took the handkerchief and wiped her tears away, a smile gently creeping onto her full lips. “Of course..” she murmured before wrapping her arms around him. “I missed you, Jikan-kun. From now on, I’m gonna be calling on you more often.”
“Eh?” He blinked, surprised by the hug, blushing of course. “Uh… yeah. I’d like that, Master.” He hummed, hugging her back, dematerializing into his blade form at her waist, the steel cased back of cards.
She smiled as he turned back into his blade form, holding onto it gently and carefully. “Good. We’re gonna be a team from now on. I’ll promise you that.”
