Tsuzuki comes to collect Anna's answer about moving in with him.
Tsuzuki looked around his apartment victory. He was confident she would say yes. The Shinigami felt giddy about the set-up already. A warm body in his futon. Girly things in his bathroom. Kissing her goodbye before going to work. Eating at home with her. Tsuzuki chuckled in delight.
This is going to be great!, he thought. The man even cleaned up his apartment some last night. He cleared space for Anna's things. Her core made her stable enough to live in Meifu. She was technically still dead in the registry. When they married, everything would fall into place.
He just needed her answer. Tsuzuki set out to get it.
The Shinigami arrived at Kimoto Manor. He grinned up to his ears as he knocked on the door. Tsuzuki waited before it opened. Anna looked on at him.
"Good morning," he greeted her. His beloved's face told him she knew what he was here for.
"Come in," she said. Her love did so. They sat in the living room.
"So," Tsuzuki said. "Will you move in or not?" Anna bit her lower lip.
"This is all so sudden," she said.
"I know," he replied.
"What will I tell Rihoko and them?"
Tsuzuki shrugged. "You're moving in with me."
"We don't even have a wedding date."
"Have you even told your coworkers?"
Sweat drop on Tsuzuki's head "No..."
"I'm working on it! I promise!" He paused for a moment. "Have you?"
Anna blinked at him. "Have I what?"
"Told anyone, besides Willow to fix that mess where she thought you were a whore."
Her eyes shot wide. "What?!?"
Tsuzuki's jaw dropped. "You haven't, have you?"
Anna's face reddened. "I was waiting until you did!" She clenched her fists. "I told Kobe and Willow!"
"But have you told anyone else?"
Tsuzuki raised an eyebrow at her. "Sort of? What do you mean 'sort of'?"
"Well... I mentioned it to Yoko-chan."
They didn't talk for a second. Tsuzuki choked back a laugh. Anna whipped around to him.
"What?!?" she asked. The Shinigami smiled at her.
"Well," he said. "Looks like we're in the same boat." Anna sighed aloud.
"So," Tsuzuki said. "What do you say?" His love's eyes turned to him. She dropped her shoulders and pressed her lips together.
"I'll try it out," she said. "But only for one week."
Tsuzuki felt like flying all over the place. "Anna-chan, I--!"
She quickly held up her hand. "Just one week!" Tsuzuki sat back, excited. Anna rose to her feet and walked down the hall. Her beloved looked after her.
"Where are you going?" he asked.
"To pack!" she yelled back. "If I'm going to stay in your apartment, I'll need a few things first, you know?" Tsuzuki sat back, smiling. Perfect/, he thought./Well, almost...
They still have to get married. Back to planning the wedding. Eventually...
At Wisteria House, Emiko received her own display of love.
