Summary: He would never admit it. Not even to himself.
Spoilers: Um, game spoilers I guess?
Having never seen snow or ice before the Icicle Inn seemed like a magical place to her. He watched her with casual eyes, walking around as though it were heaven on earth. Perhaps to her it was. He would never know because he would never ask, and he would never ask because he just kept telling himself he didn’t care. Of course, he could deny all he wanted, but his heart knew the truth; somewhere along the way that little ninja, with her hyperactivity and her bothersome questions, had stolen his heart. He would be damned though if he would admit it to himself, and he would be especially damned if he would admit it to anyone else.
He watched her play, watched her laughter, watched her savor the area, shivers running through her body.
She approached him, hands clasped behind her back, told him in an unusually quiet voice that they could go inside now.
He watched her for a moment, looked at her walking back inside, then grabbed her, pulled her back against his body, pressed her to him under his cloak to relieve the coldness in her body.
She protested at first, but his firm insistence made her say. One word: stay. And she stayed, wrapping herself in the peaceful quiet that was his company and the warmth of his body against the cool wind.
