Yami no Matsuei: Tsuzuki/Hisoka, tastes: savory

Title: Sauce for the Shinigami
Series Title: Soul Food
Author: Rana Eros
Theme: Savory
Rating: Well, there's kissing.
Previous Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Author's Notes: All betaed by elizacakeEliza, who helped me brainstorm the themes (again).

Tenku insists on a feast when Hisoka returns from Kurikara's realm with Kotaro and Kojiro bound to him as Shikigami. This meal is happier than the last Tsuzuki and Hisoka shared, despite the loss of Riko; Tsuzuki was there to see Hisoka gain his Shikigami, and he can see all three are pleased with the arrangement.

Hisoka eats quietly beside him, calm, thoughtful. Rolls his eyes when Tsuzuki insists he try something, but he takes the bite Tsuzuki offers. Then surprises Tsuzuki by feeding him in his turn.

Food tastes better from Hisoka's chopsticks.

It tastes best on Hisoka's lips.

Jaejoong always cooks for them, so Yunho decides to return the favor. He doesn't try anything fancy, just a recipe his mother taught him. Jaejoong comes in as he's finishing.

"You're cooking?" Jaejoong sounds less dubious than expected. It's encouraging.

"I wanted to surprise you."

"You have. Can I taste?"

Yunho spoons up some soup, holds it out. Jaejoong takes his wrist, sips. His eyes widen as he swallows.

"It's really good."

"Yeah?"

"Yeah. Try it."

"I did." Yunho drops the spoon in the pot, pushes Jaejoong against the counter, and kneels before him. "I think it needs more salt."

Yami no Matsuei: Terazuma/Hisoka, Asian elements: water

Title: The Continuation of the Shot
Series Title: Zen and the Art of Connection

Theme: Water

Previous Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Author's Notes: Betaed by elizacakeEliza, and I can't be sure it's kyudo that Terazuma practices, but my impression is that it is. Titles taken from the English translations for kyudo terminology.

They eat lunch together when possible, on the side of the office with the koi pond, Terazuma smoking and Kurosaki reading beside him. The kid goes through books fast; Terazuma makes a note to get more recommendations from the Gushoushin.

"You'd like this one," Kurosaki says suddenly. "It's about a private investigator in America around the time you were alive."

"Yeah? Maybe I could borrow it." Terazuma inhales, says casually, "Or you could read it to me."

Kurosaki shrugs. "I wouldn't mind starting over."

Terazuma sprawls on the bench, legs brushing Kurosaki's. "All right."

Kurosaki's voice lulls him like nicotine.
