"Oh, hey Ronin. Didn’t expect the call to be from you today. Is um, Nod busy or something, or did you… need anything?"
"Well hello to you to MK. Why does it have to mean that need something from you when I call?" He rose a brow at the red head, but a smile found his lips. He had grown fond of the red head. She was spunky but responsible, so long as she didn’t hang around or talk to Nod that much.
Closed for Seriouslysmilinginside: Demonic AU
Yuki had lived with Ronin for most of the last four years, homeschooled and trained in self defense due to the fact she was threatened by several groups of demonic vigilantes. She always waited for him at the door when he was due home from his job organizing human efforts to support peaceful individuals of the demonic/dragon species.
It was almost time, and she couldn’t help but squirm in excitement, also hoping he was bringing home some fish to cook for supper, which was not all together uncommon for them. Though the general himself never seemed to eat much from what she saw.
He was running late, which was odd for him. Ronin ran on a tight schedule and he kept to it. Yuki would be waiting for him right about now, so he needed to get there. At times she was a bit over bearing, and occasionally a nuisance but he knew she meant well.
As he rounded the corner he found the young one standing right where she normally did. A slight crooked smile appearing on his lips. “Well, either you’re early or I’m late.” He chuckled softly as he moved past her and opened the door to his small home.
The good doctor gave his best professional smile, just wide enough to look almost genuine and too neutral to be condescending, and tilted his head slightly in corvid curiosity as he asked, “What do we have here? You seem interesting.”
Ronin watched the other cautiously as he approached him. “Ronin, General Ronin. And you are?” He stayed his distance as he figured something was off about him, though he couldn’t exactly figure out what.

"Allow me to change first, I’m not sure a robe and nightgown are entirely appropriate," she says dryly. She moves back to the bedroom and selects the most clean stretchy dress, and she pulls one of the looser chemises over her head before the dress. It’s still not perfectly comfortable, but she’s unsure if she wants to tailor these when there’s the chance of waking up tomorrow at the proper time she belongs to. She found a pair of stockings and garters, and those fit better than she was anticipating.
She pads back outside to pull on the laced boots. “At least the boots fit,” she grumbles, fumbling with the laces before she pulls them tight.
He had thrown his jacket on as she came out to pull up her boots. A smile found his lips as he gazed at her. It was strange but not unfamiliar. “After you? Anywhere in particular you might want to see?”
A Lesson Learned (Closed)
"Of course," Jaeger says easily, leaning back in his chair. "Look, don’t give Zhana such a hard time. You are hir first patient, zhe’s obviously going to be more concerned about following protocol until zhe has a little more experience.”
"I won’t. Don’t worry, I won’t bother hir anymore." Ronin looked over at Jeager, "Just promise you won’t forget me." He looked over out the window, "Good luck."
He shut the door and stood outside for a moment or two. Trying to decide if he should really leave of if he was being childish after all this was over the crocodile. Biting his lower lip, Ronin stepped off the porch and continued down the sidewalk. They would work this out later, but right now he needed some time to think.
Leaving part of his heart in the house.
"I stay because I love you, all your faults and mistakes it doesn’t make you any less a person Ole. You’re not perfect and I don’t expect you to be. I’m closer to you then I am to anyone else. We’re going to fight…but that doesn’t make me love you less." Leaning over, Ronin gently leaned over and kissed his head.
"You’re human now Ole. People come and go, some will stay forever some won’t stay at all. What matters is what you’ve learned and how they’ve impacted you."
Oleander turned his face away when Ronin leaned over to kiss him. He could smell the alcohol on the other, and it annoyed the God. He kept his eyes from looking at Ronin’s face and instead focused on the wall, his jaw clenched.
Ronin saw this and he felt his heart twist. “What’s that for?” He wrinkled his nose in slight anger.
"Whoa!" Oleander exclaimed, reaching out to support Ronin. "Lean on me, come on." He chuckled. He honestly didn’t mean to push the other as much as he did, but Ronin did say that he wanted things to be rough.
Ronin chuckled lightly as he hid a wince as they started walking. “Once I get feeling back into my legs.” They were in the same position for an hour or so. “How are you feeling?”
