Summary: "Why'd you have to be so stupid?"
Notes/Warnings: It's kinda depressing. Which for some reason it always is when I write Mugen/Fuu.
He aches all over. He doesn't know what the fuck that whore slipped him, but he can barely move a muscle. He's fucked, and he knows it.
Still, she's there, holding that stupid tanto of hers like it's going to do her any good.
"Fuu," he rasps, glad that he can at least manage to speak. "What the fuck are you..."
"Shut up, Mugen," she says, and he can see her legs shaking as she speaks. The goon across from her is smirking, knowing he's already won.
"Get out of here, idiot. No sense in both of us getting cut to pieces." He hopes this reminder of her mortality will knock some sense into her, but still she doesn't budge. There were some guys that wouldn't cut down chicks, Mugen knew, but he could tell that this asshole sure as hell wasn't one of them.
"I'm not leaving you!" she insists, and Mugen curses her for being so stubborn. And stupid.
"Jin will be here soon, so I just..."
The bastard cuts her down before she finishes talking. She's lying next to him now, bleeding profusely from a gash in her chest. Mugen is surprised that the force of his anger doesn't give him the strength to get up and cut the fucker until he's dead. And then cut him some more.
She's looking at him, he realizes. She must mistake the look in his eyes to be directed at her because then she says, "I'm sorry," and Mugen thinks that if he had a heart, it would be breaking.
"Fuu," he says, barely a whisper, though the frustration inside him is so great that he's surprised he's not shouting. "Why'd you have to be so stupid?"
"Why?" she asks, sounding confused, as if the answer is the most obvious thing in the world.
"Because I love you, idiot."
AND THEN JIN BURSTS IN AND SAVES EVERYONE, OKAY? Normally I hate declarations of ~LOVE~ in fic, but oh well. I'm comfortable with this because Fuu has known for a while that she loves Mugen, I think.
