Author's Notes: I've been trying out a slightly different style of writing lately, so I'm not too sure on how it turned out. I do feel the impact of it is greater like this than in another perspective, however. Plus, it's Yukichi! Squee~!
Disclaimer: All things Fruits Basket belong to Takaya Natsuki-sensei. Grassy only lays claim to the plot.
This is not what you'd planned, not at all.
You had meant to tell her of your growing feelings for her; to make or break or somehow manage to not change things between the two of you at all. Never would you have imagined this. Have imagined her. Here. In your arms. Against your body.
And you're still human, no sign of the Rat at all. The weight, the warmth, the feel of her against your own body is like nothing you've ever felt before. And you're still human.
So, unless she pulls away, you never have to let her go.
Despite your own fears, mixed-up feelings, and the tears that continue to fall, you know it has all been worth it, just to hold her and only her in your arms.
This is everything.
