A/N: As I go to post this, Tweak says, “This is our final December.”
“Well, this is it.” Tenpou set his sword against the wall and took out his cigarettes.
“Ah, hell,” Kenren growled as he wiped blood from his eyes. “Never thought it would go down like this, Ten. I – I’m sorry.”
“What are you sorry about?” Tenpou asked around a mouthful of smoke. “You didn’t bring him to Heaven. I don’t think anyone expected this to happen.”
The small building trembled, knocking dust from its ceiling. The fine specks drifted down like sunbeams.
“Do you think they’ll banish us?” Kenren asked, readying his weapon.
Tenpou smiled. “Kenren, soulmate, I’m counting on it.”
