I will continue with the ego-boost posts (for those few others who wanted one) but since i don't have enough time for that today i'll post that shounen-ai story i said i'll post =P Please do not flame etc etc, if you don't like male/male stories just skip it, k?
This story was originally written/posted way back on Sunday, April 11, 2004, yep, this story is over 2 years old x3 So i simply re-vamped it (spelling, grammer etc) & am re-posting it.
Warning: PWP (point, what point?), fluff & slight angst, but nothing major.

Disclaimer: I don't own Kenshin nor Sano
but i think you can imagine the results if i did lol.
Sitting quietly in front of the Dojo were a group of four, who had all met under some what "strange" circumstances, as if fate had brought them all together.
It was just another ordinary night at the Dojo. Kaoru, Kenshin, Yahiko and Sanosuke all eating Tofu and talking, Sano shooting glances at Kenshin from the corner of his eye every few minutes, that’s all he could risk after all. What would the others say if they caught him staring?
"You want more Tofu Kenshin?" came the some what flirtatious voice of Kaoru, who was once again trying to get Kenshin's attention by being overly generous.
"Who would want more of your cooking, I‘m sure Kenshin has enough of your poison in his system as it is!!" came the sharp, yet expected, snappy remark from the youngest of the group.
So, like every night, the yelling began.
Since Yahiko and Kaoru seemed distracted yelling at one another, and Kenshin watching them, Sano was free to admire the red head for longer periods without too much fear of being caught out.
Leaping behind Kenshin and running her fingers over his shoulders, Kaoru screamed, "Tell that brat to cool down Kenshin!"
Sano couldn't take it no more, he wanted to slam the table and tell that bitch to keep her filthy hands off of Kenshin, but he couldn't, he wouldn't, he refused to ruin the friendship they had. Instead he stood up and headed for the door, the only sign of him being ticked off being the slight stamping of his feet on the soft ground.
"What's wrong?" came the question he had expected.
"Nothing, I just need some air."
He hated lying to Kenshin, it always hurt.
Sitting on a patch of grass just outside of the Dojo Sano pulled his knees up to his face and wrapped his long arms around himself. Attempting to protect himself from the onslaught of emotions and un-answerable questions. Which never really worked, but the act alone provided some comfort.
'Why me?' He would silently scream to himself. Why did he have to fall in love with his best friend? Wasn’t life hard enough as it was without this complication? ‘I hate myself for loving him‘ he cursed yet again, ‘He could never love me, especially with Kaoru around him constantly‘. His hatred once again turning towards Kaoru. Even though deep down, he knew she wasn’t at fault here.
"I can't stay here, i need more distance between us!" Sano muttered angrily to himself before standing and heading off home.
He didn’t realise till much later that night that he had actually admitted to himself that he loves Kenshin. He spent the next few hours trying to work out just when he had fallen in love with his friend.
* * flashback * *
Kenshin was heading towards his ‘secret place’ when Sano had followed him, curious of where the ex-man slaughterer was going and why. He had hidden behind a tree when Kenshin had finally stopped and lowered himself to the ground beside a small river, although he knew the famous battousai could probably sense him standing there anyway. But Sano watched regardless, transfixed when Kenshin dipped his hair in the river and threw his head back, sending tiny droplets of water running down his face, hair and all around him. It was like watching a porn movie, without the sex, or the nudity of course. But the site ahead of him was far more eye catching, erotic and magical then anything porn could come out with.
* * end flashback * *
"Hey Sano, are you awake?" Kenshin whispered quietly through the front door. A few moments went past before he spoke again. "I hope i aint't disturbed you, i need to tell you something".
Sano slowly got up and opened the door, attempting to mask the joy that practically beamed off of him.
Kenshin came in and sat down, "Yahiko and Kaoru are still arguing, its been going on for hours!"
‘Wow’ he thought, ’Was I really thinking about him that long?’ Sano thought, he knew it had been a few hours, but not that long, it was way past mid-night already, and he had the Dojo at around 6.
Nodding his head to a vacant side of his little room, "You can sleep over there, i expect that’s what you're after, a place to sleep in peace", stretching his arms out Sano tried to act like he’d just been woken up
Kenshin walked over to where Sano had pointed too and sat down, head bent to the floor. The ex-fighter-for-hire couldn't keep his eyes off of him, he was so tempted to lay beside him, to stroke his hair, to be close. But he couldn’t, so taking a deep breath he tore his sight away from the other man and closed his eyes. There wasn’t much use in trying to sleep, not with Kenshin in the same room. A short stretch of silence had passed before Sano heard Kenshin again.
"I didn't come here to sleep."
Opening one eye he saw Kenshin, who was now sitting up staring at the ceiling, fighting back tears. He couldn't bare the sight of Kenshin looking so lost, crawling on hands and knees Sano quickly went over to Kenshin and gently wiped away the first tear that had rolled down his pale, scarred cheek.
Kenshin leaned against Sano broad shoulder. Dark eyes widened, he had never been this close to Kenshin before, was it ok to tell him, he had to, it would eat him from the inside if he didn't.
"I love you" Sano quietly whispered.
Suddenly Kenshin's weight had shifted away from his shoulder. Sano’s world fell apart. What had he done? Why had he done it? He had just ruined one of the only friendships that he ever had! And what for?
He was about to once again bury his head and his shame into his hands, when he felt butterfly kissed being placed randomly along his neck. Tears filled his eyes, he couldn't breath. A gasp for air was all he could manage.
Kenshin once more pulled away, afraid that he had somehow misinterpreted his friend‘s words, "I'm sorry" he whispered quietly "I got carried away."
Kenshin stood quickly and went to leave when Sano grabbed his wrist, he still hadn’t found his voice but managed to murmur, "Please, don't leave."
Kenshin sat in front of him, holding his face in his hands, violet eyes piercing dark brown, "That's why i came, i need to tell you that......i love you."
Sano placed his right hand on Kenshin's left cheek lightly stroked the skin underneath his fingertips. Soon enough both were merely inches apart, and within a split second all of Sano’s doubts and worries washed away, as his lips finally met those of Kenshin‘s.
Awwwwww x3 Anyway, that's all from me till Sunday!!
