Pairing: Shirou Kamui x Nekoi Yuzuriha
Notes: First time writing for this fandom and for this pairing. Could be crack-ish.

"No Pocky?" Kamui asked his companion as they were sitting together at the front steps of the Imonoyama mansion. "I thought you love it."

Yuzuriha shook her head. "I wanted to give you something else. Pocky doesn't suit you." Beaming happily, she handed him a small package. "Here. It's from me and Inuki."

He started to unwrap the box, and his eyes grew a little wider as he saw what was inside. "You brought me a chocolate bar?"

"Why not?"

"I don't like sweets."

"Candy says many things about people."

Her reply made him interested. "What made you say that?"

She grinned sheepishly. "It's just an observation. Want to test it out?"

"How?"

"Well...tell me first what kind of candy are you holding."

He looked at her as if she had lost her mind. "Yuzuriha, are you tricking me? Because if you are---"

"No, I'm not tricking you." She looked at him expectantly. "Go on, tell me what kind of candy it is!"

Kamui sighed impatiently before answering. "It's black chocolate."

"Very good!" The petite girl clapped her hands excitedly, her dark brown eyes shining. "What else?"

What do you mean? I've already told you what this candy is!"

"But you have to tell me what it tastes like."

"I don't eat---" He was interrupted as she suddenly shoved the candy bar in front of him.

"Take a bite."

He gave her an icy look, but he did what he was told to do. He slowly chewed the sweet, trying to savor the taste.

"Well?"

He made a face. "It's bitter. But..."

"But what?"

"But it's also sweet."

"Just like you."

Kamui choked, nearly spitting the candy out. "What?"

Yuzuriha giggled, patting his back. "The black chocolate...it's just like you. Kamui-san's life is full of bitterness, isn't it? And yet..."

His amethyst eyes gazed at her questioningly. "And yet what?"

Yuzuriha had a wistful expression on her face. "And yet...sometimes, Kamui-san smiles."

He scowled in reply. "I don't."

"I said sometimes." A short chuckle escaped her lips. "But that's why you're black chocolate. You're bitter...but you're also sweet, just like the chocolate."

Her words brought an unfamiliar feeling that warmed his heart. "If you say I'm black chocolate, then Pocky suits you really well, Yuzuriha."

She faced him, her head tilted sideways in curiousity. "Why's that?"

His lips curved into a gentle smile. "Because you make people happy."
