Author’s note: I read book 6 of Gensoumaden and I had to write a 93 fluff. I was just like “…squee!” Oh, and by the way, ‘hohoemi’ means smile in Japanese.
Sanzo stared out the window. He sat behind his desk and watched the cigarette smoke drift up into the air. He was exceedingly bored.
“Hey, Sanzo!” Sanzo’s eyes moved to the door through which Goku had just burst, smiling widely. “Sanzo~!”
“What do you want?” Sanzo asked annoyedly.
Goku blinked. “What’s wrong, Sanzo?”
“Nothing,” Sanzo replied matter-of-factly.
“But you look so…grim,” Goku protested, making a face.
“If you have nothing to say, monkey, then don’t waste my time.” Sanzo looked away from Goku, who blinked and then left the room.
Later that day, Sanzo was wandering around outside the temple, still bored out of his mind. He was just deciding to go in when something came towards him out of the air. “Sanzooooo!”
Sanzo was annoyed to realize that he had jumped out of surprise. Goku was now hanging in front of him, upside down, out of a tree. “Hey, Sanzo!”
Sanzo glared. “Stupid monkey!” he declared, smacking Goku with the harisen.
“Ow! C’mon, Sanzo, that hurt!” Goku whined as Sanzo turned his back and began to walk away. “Sanzo! Come back!”
Sanzo shook his head. “I don’t tolerate stupidity.”
Sanzo saw nothing of Goku for the rest of the day, which was pleasing, but boring nonetheless. It was late in the evening, and he walked down the dimly lit hallway to his room. He was tired and not paying attention when…
Bang! The shot luckily missed its target, which was now on top of Sanzo, who had fallen to the floor.
Goku smiled happily at Sanzo, who glared. “You idiot! What the fuck was that?”
Goku blinked. “You looked lonely.”
Sanzo scowled. “Yes. I was alone. And I liked it just fine that way!”
Goku ignored him. “Where’re ya goin’, Sanzo?”
“My room,” Sanzo replied, pushing Goku off him and getting to his feet.
“Can I come?” Goku asked excitedly, also jumping to his feet.
“Hell if I care,” Sanzo replied, beginning to walk away.
“Yay!” Goku replied, bounding after him.
Goku sat on Sanzo’s bed amusing himself while Sanzo got ready for bed. When Sanzo was finished, however, he found Goku standing, smiling sheepishly. “Hey, Sanzo…”
“What is it?” Sanzo muttered, purely curious.
Goku took a few steps forward, paused, and then, without warning, leaned forward and pressed his lips against Sanzo’s.
The kiss lasted for 30 seconds at most before Goku pulled away, blushing a little. Sanzo just stood there, stunned.
“Damn,” Goku finally said after a minute.
“What?” Sanzo managed, breaking out of his paralysis and shifting uncomfortably.
Goku half-smiled. “I thought I could give it to you.”
“What?” Sanzo asked again, confused.
Goku looked up at Sanzo and smiled apologetically. “My smile.”
Sanzo paused. “And why would I want that?”
“Well…you were lookin’ really glum all day…and I wanted you to smile.” Goku smiled sheepishly again. “I guess it didn’t work.”
Sanzo looked at Goku, then, slowly, gave him a small half-smile. “I guess it did.”
Goku’s face lit up happily. “Oh, Sanzo!”
“But you realize,” Sanzo continued, “that you’ll have to take it back at some point.”
Goku blinked. “But then I’ll just have to give you another one.”
Sanzo raised his eyebrows. “Well then, I guess you’ll just have to get used to it.”
Goku shrugged with a smile. “I guess I will.”
