Eight weeks later . . .

Asato had not been feeling well for the last month or so. He would throw up two or three times every morning, even the smell of food even made him sick. A week after the vomiting began, Nagare had sent for her personal physician to attend him. He took a blood sample and told Asato he could only have tea and dry toast in the morning.

“Lady Nagare?” Setsuna said. She turned and looked at him from her window seat.

“Yes, Setsuna?”

“Dr. Koichi is here at your behest, my lady.”

“Send him in, Setsuna, and a tea tray as well.”

“Very good, my lady.” Setsuna left and the doors opened once again. This time Dr. Koichi came in, Nagare stood up from the window seat and walked over to her seating area. Dr. Koichi sat down in the lone chair and Nagare sat on the settee.

“Good Afternoon, Dr. Koichi. Do you have the results of my guest’s blood tests?” She asked.

“Yes, I do.” Before he could say anything else, Nagare’s door opened and a maid walked in with the tea tray. She sat it on the low table between them, bowed and walked quickly from the room.

“Would you like some tea, doctor?” Nagare asked as she poured herself a cup.

“No, thank you, my lady.” He pulled off his glasses, cleaned them with his handkerchief and slid them back on. He looked at her over the top of them, “Are you sure your guest is a man?”

“Yes, I am quite sure. Why do you ask, Dr. Koichi?” She said as she took a sip of her tea.

“Um, I don’t know how to say this but he’s now a pregnant man.” Nagare nearly choked on her tea when she heard Dr. Koichi say this. She placed the cup down on the table gently and glared at him.

“Are you sure?” She asked, disbelief clouding her emerald eyes.

“Of course I’m sure. I ran those tests numerous times and they all came back the same, he’s pregnant.” Nagare closed her eyes slowly. Oh my god, my assassin is having my son’s baby. She thought, then her thoughts brightened and a smile came over her face. My first grandbaby is on the way.

“How far along is he?”

“I won’t know that until I perform an ultrasound, my lady. I’m sure all parties involved would like to know that.”

“Well, um thank you for your services, Dr. Koichi. I trust you will keep this to yourself, right?”

“Of course, I would never tell, Lady Nagare, I cherish my life, you know.” He reached into his pocket and pulled out a large bottle of pills. “These are prenatal vitamins for your guest. They are to be taken every morning with something to eat. Therefore, if our business is concluded I bid you adieu, Lady Nagare. It was a pleasure to see you as always.” the doctor got up, kissed her hand and left.

Nagare stood up, walked to the middle of her sitting room and began to pace. How am I going to tell Hisoka and my assassin what’s going on without getting directly involved? She though about it for awhile, she got a idea and smiled.

“Setsuna!” she yelled. Her apartment doors flew open and Setsuna came quickly into the room.

“Yes, my lady?”

“I need you to do something for me.”

Hisoka walked through the house, wondering why he was summoned to the Onyx Tower. It was a set of apartments that was hardly ever used and were normally reserved for royal guests only. He hadn’t heard they had any royalty in residence because he would have met them by now. He stopped in front of the doors and pushed one of them open. Hisoka walked through the door and looked around the room. He as he walked through the sitting room of the apartment, he stopped when he saw Asato sitting on a bench by the windows.

“Asato?” Hisoka said, questioningly. Asato turned and looked at him with wide amethyst eyes filled with surprise.

“Hisoka? What are you doing here?” Asato said, shocked that Hisoka was in his rooms. He was just thinking about Hisoka and the news that Lady Nagare had informed him of ten minutes ago.

“I was summoned here. What are you doing here?” Asato fidgeted with a lock of hair, twirling it around his finger.

“These are my rooms, Hisoka.” he said. Hisoka walked over to where Asato was sitting and saw that he appeared to be paler than normal. Hisoka could also tell that he had gained some weight because he could see it in his face.

“These are your rooms, Asato? My mother normally reserves this apartment for royalty only. You‘re very lucky to get these rooms.” Hisoka said, Asato just merely smiled.

“Hisoka, since you’re here, I have something I need to tell you. Here, sit down next to me.” Asato said as he patted the seat next to him on the bench. Hisoka sat down and turned towards Asato so he was looking at his beautiful face.

“What’s going on, Asato?” he asked.

“You know how I told you I’ve been getting sick every morning for the last month or so, right?” Asato asked with his eyes cast down, still playing with that lock of hair.

“Yea, I remember.”

“Well, I found out today why I’ve been getting sick.” Asato stood up and untied his obi.

“WAIT! What are you doing, Asato? What if someone walks in here?” Hisoka said as he looked towards the doors.

“Don’t worry, Hisoka, no one ever comes in here. Pay attention I‘m trying to show you something.”

Asato opened his yukata and Hisoka looked up at him. He noticed that Asato had gained some weight and his stomach wasn‘t flat anymore, it was actually sticking out some. Asato grabbed Hisoka’s hand and gently placed it on his bare rounded stomach, just under his navel. Asato placed his other hand on top of Hisoka’s. Hisoka’s eyes drifted shut as Asato’s power cascaded over him. He could clearly hear his heartbeat and Asato’s but there was also a third heartbeat, fainter and faster than theirs was.

That’s our baby’s heartbeat, Soka. Asato said across their mental pathway.

Our baby? Hisoka questioned, completely confused by what Asato was saying.

Asato felt his confusion. Remember those words tattooed around my navel?

Yes. Hisoka said as thoughts of what happened after he saw the tattoos on Asato’s body floated through his mind.

I think this is what they meant… That I was able to give life. Hisoka could hear the happiness in Asato’s voice.

Hisoka opened his eyes and looked up at Asato. Asato was looking down at him, smiling with tears running down his cheeks. Out of the corner of his eye, Hisoka saw the doors to Asato’s rooms open up. He pulled his hand away and stood up quickly when he saw his mother walk in, Asato quickly closed his yukata.

“Okaasan, I…” Nagare held up her hand and cut off Hisoka‘s sentence. She smiled at him and Hisoka was taken aback because he could feel waves of happiness coming from her.

“Hisoka? Amatsu? Please sit down.” They both sat down on the bench quickly, both of them confused about what was going on. Asato had placed a hand on his stomach, where their baby was nestled, and began to move it in little circles. The other hand was clasped within Hisoka‘s. Nagare smiled when she saw Amatsu rubbing his belly.

“Three months ago, I was taking a stroll in the gardens and I heard a noise. I didn’t know what it was so I went searching and… came upon you two. Wait, Hisoka, don’t say anything yet. The funny thing about this is that… I’m not mad.”

“What? Did I hear that right? You‘re not mad?” Hisoka said in confusion.

“Yes, I said I wasn’t mad. I’m glad you two found each other. I took it upon myself to have all of Amatsu’s-”

“…Asato…” Hisoka said in a voice so quiet that his mother didn‘t almost hear it.

“What was that, Hisoka?” his mother said.

“His name is Asato. Call him whatever you like around others but when it’s just family call him Asato. Please.”

“Okay, okay, I will call him Asato if that makes you happy. I really don’t care who’s called what right now because I’m so excited that my first grandbaby is on the way. Like I was saying, before I was rudely interrupted, I had all of Asato’s things moved to your rooms, Hisoka.”

“Wait, Okaasan, what is going on?” Hisoka said as he stood up.

“Hisoka, did you think that I would deny you love if you found someone who truly loved you?” Hisoka bent his head down and nodded. Nagare walked over to him and lifted his face. She leaned forward and kissed away the lone tear that slid down his cheek.

“Hisoka, I’m sorry I wasn’t a very good parent to you. I grew up in a house filled with duty not love. I’m also sorry that your otousan was not here because I think he would have truly loved you. See, my otousan was a harsh man and he wanted no man in my life but him. I never told you this but once your jiisan found out I was having a boy, he had your otousan killed. I’m sorry I never told you because at one time I truly hated you because my otousan loved you when he had never even loved me.”

“Why tell me now, Okaasan?”

“Because you have someone who loves you that you love back. Your otousan was an arranged marriage for me and I vowed that no child of mine, if I ever had one, would ever go through what I went through. I do care about you, Hisoka, and I want you to be happy.” She dropped her hand and walked across the room to the doors, she stopped in front of them and smiled.

“Before I forget, I had Setsuna ‘arrange’ to get a birth certificate for Asato through some associates of his. Asato is officially a girl now and you two can get married if you wish. Bye, guys.” she said with a smile and a wave as she glided out of the room.

“What in the hell has happened to my mother?” Hisoka whispered as the doors closed behind her.

***

Later on that night…

It was midnight and Hisoka was still wide awake. He turned his head and smiled because Asato was finally where he belonged, sleeping next to him. Then it all hit him at once, they were having a baby and his mother was happy about it. Hisoka pushed back the blankets and slid his hand across Asato’s stomach. Why hadn’t I noticed that Asato’s stomach was becoming rounder and rounder each passing day? Asato was so slight that it made his belly look bigger than it really was. As Hisoka rubbed his hand across Asato‘s stomach, he could feel faint emotions coming from their baby, he could feel confusion and love. Hisoka projected love to their baby and the baby sent it back in a stronger burst. Hisoka smiled, their baby was probably blessed with powers like theirs.

Asato made this strange noise in his sleep, his eyes shot open, and he sat up. He got out of bed and ran to their bathroom. Hisoka could hear Asato puking and crawled out of bed to help him. Asato felt Hisoka’s warm hands hold back his hair and stroke his back as he threw up his dinner. When he was done, he was pulled back against Hisoka’s warm chest. Hisoka wrapped an arm around him and stroked a hand across their baby. They sat there for a while, then Hisoka helped Asato to his feet. He helped him to wash his face and rinse out his mouth. When they got back in bed, Hisoka pulled Asato into the curve of his body and placing a hand on their baby. He drifted off to sleep with a smile on his lips.

***

Three weeks later…

Everyone in the Kurosaki household was ecstatic about the news of the new baby on the way. Hisoka had a surprise planned for Asato that night, he was sitting in their bower waiting for him.

“Soka?” he heard Asato whisper.

“I’m here, Asato.” he said in a voice loud enough for Asato to hear. Asato came through the foliage into their bower and Hisoka helped him to sit down. Hisoka looked at Asato’s face and saw that it was beginning to fill out. He no longer looked pale and actually had a soft peachy hue that made his skin glow.

“Why did you want to meet here, Soka?” Asato said as he placed a hand on his now visibly pregnant belly.

“Because this where I found love for the first time in my life. Asato, I wanted to ask you something. Will…” Asato held up a hand and cut off Hisoka.

“I’m happy with the way our life is, Soka. It couldn’t be more perfect than it is right now. You don’t have to marry me. Besides, what if someone found out that my birth certificate is doctored and that I’m really a man? Your family owns a major company and it would cause a scandal.” Hisoka laughed and shook his head.

“I think you’ve been hanging out with Setsuna way too much. I want to marry you because I love you, Asato. I want you to be mine, in all ways that count. Even so, if someone did find out that you’re part male we could easily say that you’re a hermaphrodite and that your parents chose for you to be female not male. You really are more female than male, by the way. Did you know that you don’t have an Adam’s apple?” Asato looked at Hisoka’s neck and could see his clearly. He raised a hand and ran it underneath his neck. His eyes widened when he realized he didn’t have an Adam’s apple.

“You’re right, Soka, I don’t have one. Only men have them right?” Hisoka nodded as he smiled. He reached out and pulled Asato against him. Asato sighed as he laid his head on Hisoka’s shoulder.

“I noticed that the first night here in this bower, but it wouldn’t matter to me if you did or didn’t, Asato, because I would still love you. Will you marry me and be my love forever?” Asato raised his head and smiled at Hisoka, his amethyst eyes lighting up.

“Yes, I will marry you, Soka.” Hisoka bent his head and kissed Asato deeply. When he pulled back, they were lying on the grass.

“I have been meaning to ask you this for months. How in the hell do you do that?” Asato burst out in a fit of giggles as he wrapped his arms around Hisoka’s neck.

He pulled Hisoka down, whispered across his lips, “I’ll never tell.”, and proceeded to kiss Hisoka like he was the last man on earth.
