Home for the Holidays

Who: Kanda, Princess Mercury
What: Yuletide festivities at the Mercury Kingdom
When: past life, Silver Millennium
Where: taking place in the Mercury Kingdom

It was easy to provide the perfect environment. Snow drifted gently to the ground, a soft background glimpsed through curtained windows from inside the comfortably-warmed ballroom. Soft music whispered and nudged, but failed to interrupt private conversations. Some of the guests held drinks, a few offered festive toasts among their friends.

At the head of the room, apart from the elegant bustle, a blue-haired girl in a satin gown sat on the dais, as if she were pleased to watch over the sight of the people enjoying themselves. A small, gracious smile stayed on her face, and those who caught her eye received a polite nod of recognition in return, but there was no one beside her or speaking with her.

Despite all the people bustling around the room, there was a particular boy in the crowd who couldn't take his eyes off the princess sitting in the front of the room. Decked in his initiatives uniform, he stood close to his master while stealing glances at the princess every chance he took.

Eventually, his masters conversation sent them closer to the thrown where Kanda was able to steal a better peak at his princess.

Blue suited her well, he was mesmerized by her eyes. He hadn't even noticed his master walking off to continue his socializing and how it left him standing out in the open just staring at the girl.

The boy tensed when he realized the princess was beckoning him closer. Blue eyes went wide but he didn't dare say no to her. Instead, with a hesitant step, he approached the princess in her throne and bowed down low before addressing her.

"Forgive me, princess. I didn't... I didn't mean to stare." Because he was blunt. He had no reason to lie to her. He was all ready caught.

"In all honesty, princess, I don't like big parties."

Again, he gave her nothing but the truth. He hadn't lifted his head yet from the bow and he wasn't sure he wanted to. He was nervous. If his fellow trainee's could see him now, the great Kanda Yu cowering in front of a girl. It wasn't just any girl. He had only gotten a glimpse of her but he was sure, Princess Ami was definitely the most beautiful girl in all the galaxy! He had no doubts!

"This is the first time I have been invited to this gathering and I'm grateful for the invitation of the royal family." He knew it hadn't been them specifically, he was just no longer a lower class plebeian. He was a soldier class. Sure, it wasn't something as prestige as a Knight but his existence was noticed now.

Kanda wasn't going to get into what pros and cons the government had in regards to its treatment of their soldiers because it wasn't polite. Yes, he might not be the best mannered yet but he knew when to keep his mouth shut. He finally looked up, letting his eyes linger on her beautiful face.

"It is a service done with honor, my princess. A simple soldier like me can only hope to be in your good graces someday."

After the dance, things hadn't gone very well for Kanda. His commanding officer had made him the grunt abusing him with every job he could make Kanda do. The other soldiers didn't treat him any kinder. Any chance they got they pummeled him. At first he had defended himself and all that did was make them come back with more numbers. He eventually stopped fighting and let the punches come.

According to them Kanda didn't deserve what he got, the chance to dance with a princess. An orphan like him had no business in the presence of royalty and since he had the audacity to keep her all to himself, he had apparently deserved punishment for it. Kanda didn't regret a single moment, if anything he was more in love now with the girl than ever. Bleeding and swollen, he had decided to take a longer route home when he found himself being called on by the princess again. He couldn't help but smile trying to stand up a little straighter in her presence.

"My princess, we meet again."

"Speak?"

The soldier knew the implication of her question and had no intentions of telling her that he had been beaten up for being chosen by her. It might have looked like a bad thing at first glance, an ill curse of the like, but he swore he was all right. He was fantastic. If it earned him bruising's then the princess definitely had to like him.

"What do you want to speak about, my princess? Have you been keeping your promise you made to me?"

He nervously scratched the back of his head, the last thing he wanted was to explain to her that he had been getting bullied because of her. Wel, no it wasn't her fault but then it sort of was. He just feigned a smile.

"It's nothing, I was careless during training."

You knew you were screwed when all you did for a day was watch the sun move from one end of the room to the next. There really wasn't much else to do when you were bed ridden. Kanda had met his match in the last battle he was involved in. He had suffered broken bones, broken ribs, and a terrible concussion that had him out cold for days. Of course when he came to be he was alone. That's what happened when you had no family and hardly any friends.

It didn't make Kanda upset to think no one really cared about his health, he was just upset because this meant he couldn't meet the princess as he had been for a while. Had she forgotten about him? Did she even remember him? She was a busy person, he figured she had better things to do. Either case, he wished she was around. Her face always managed to cheer her up.

"Princes- ah!"

The sound of her voice alone had made him try and jerk up to a sitting position which wasn't good for a guy with broken ribs. He groaned, falling back into the pillow grumbling a 'please come in' as he tried to catch his breath.

"Injured? Yeah, something like that."

No, princess. Your friend had been in the ICU for a while now and he could hardly walk. But that was fine because he was a lot better. He could chew his own food now! He let himself fall back on the bed as he smiled at her.

"I'm sorry, I don't look so great."

Once Kanda was all healed, his weeks were enthralled in training sessions and secret escapes to the palace grounds as he hid small gifts for the princess. Because wooing the girl in plain sight would cause them problems, he made sure to be meticulous in his sneaking's yet blatant enough for her to know who they belonged to.

This night was their first date and he was a little bit early. Taking refuge in the night, he had sneaked into the royal gardens, a place only the royal family and most trusted guards were allowed to enter waiting for the princess. He was sitting on a patch of grass with a small present at his side. It was all a matter of time.

"Thank me?"

The nervous smile on his face fell as he heard her say that. Thank him? He wasn't sure if that was a good thing or not, it didn't sound good to him. He couldn't tell her exactly what reaction he was expecting but somehow having a thank you didn't quite cut it. It was a polite answer, a lot of royals said thank you. Did she not like them? Maybe he chose the wrong thing. He looked rather put out.

"Didn't you like them. Did I do the wrong thing?"

They were both insecure it seemed, but her reassurance eased his worries. He sighed nodding his head silently. He figured he shouldn't be getting worried. Ami was here with him after all, what could go wrong.

"It was a little difficult to decide what to get for a princess. I just hope the right message got across."
