Theme #9 Sunset

Title: Stargazing (#9 Sunset)
Rating: G
Character/Pairing: Sesshoumaru + Inutaisho
Words: 249
Summary: He could never keep his eyes open long enough to see daybreak.


Evening was his favorite part of the day, especially on the days that his father allowed him to stay up late. They would sit in silence, watching as the sun slowly crept down past the line of trees bordering their home, bathing everything in a golden glow. They would continue silently watching the sky fade to lavender, then grow darker and darker, their eyes adjusting to the change in light.

It was only when the fist stars started peering out of the darkness did his father speak.

“What is that one named?” Sesshoumaru would scrunch his face up, trying to recall all the names and positions of each star. His father told him that at night, when visible borders to other territories were less evident, knowing where the stars fell in alignment would be of the utmost importance, not only for the season they were in, but all year round.

Sesshoumaru would listen intently to his father’s lecture, repeating everything back to him until the sky started to grow light. Yet try as he might, he could never keep his eyes open long enough to watch the sky do a reverse performance, bathing everything in gold yet again. He would feel his head go heavy, then a feeling of weightlessness and then a heavy hand smoothing over his head. Later that day, he’d wake in his own bed, the haori his father had draped over his shoulders as the night grew colder still around him, acting as a blanket.
