Schuldig looked at him for whole seconds at a time now. And didn't call him a sick bastard quite as often. That was good.

What wasn't good was the way Nagi kept appearing like a damn stealth teenager. I have an idea for surveillance, Crawford. I'd like your advice on this target, Crawford. Let me show you this incomprehensible thing I'm doing on the computer, Crawford. Like Nagi gave a damn for advice or ever bothered revealing his little hobbies.

"Thank you, Nagi," Crawford said, thinking Piss off, you little shit.

"Kids," he said, frustrated.

Schuldig struggled not to smile.

"You only did it once?"

"Yes."

"You never do it again."

"OK."

"You don't even look at him funny."

"OK."

"I'm serious."

"I know."

"OK," Schuldig said, running a hand through his hair. "That's your get-out-of-jail card used up, though."

"Hell, we still have plenty of those," Crawford said genially. Finally things could get back to normal, not before time. He'd have no difficulty following Schuldig's stipulations. After all, Nagi hadn't actually been any good.

"You really don't get it," Schuldig snapped.

"But I'll do what you want anyway," Crawford said quickly.

"OK," Schuldig nodded. "We'll give this a try."

Goku wakes when the bed cools, and sees Sanzo smoking in the window. The whole room smells like cigarettes, which smell like Sanzo- or he smells like them, whichever; Goku isn't sure of the difference.

"This changes nothing," Sanzo says. "Don't expect anything special."

"I know that." Goku sits up, arms on his knees. "Just don't go."

Sanzo keeps smoking, and he's strange, tense, once he comes back. But he lets Goku press his face against his back and breathe; here, Sanzo smells like sweat, and dirt from the road, soft, fuzzy dust from the inn's old blankets, cold air.

"Nice day, isn't it?"

"They're all nice, Tenpou," Kenren says, adding sake to Konzen's cup even as Konzen covers it. Konzen shakes his hand, then discreetly licks the last droplets off; the bastard stares.

Tenpou plucks something deeply purple from the grass he's sprawled in and offers it to Konzen. "A flower for a souvenir." Konzen is fairly certain it's a weed, actually.

"It'll look better on you than me," Kenren says. "Besides, you wouldn't want to forget this picnic."

"It's the most pointless I've ever been on." Konzen accepts the flower nonetheless.

Tenpou smiles. "That's what makes it nice."
