Over two years had passed since Mitsuhide had arrived in Vatheon, and he still only knew a few things about Christmas.

The most important one was that it was a winter festival of giving, and he was quite content to celebrate such a festival. Gifting those you loved could only ever be a good thing, after all. It had taken him quite some time to settle on the right presents for his family, and now he was sat in his room staring at two particular parcels. These were for his lover and betrothed, Motochika.

He was rather nervous about both of them, for different reasons. The larger contained a slim book that he'd bound himself. It was filled with poetry of a rather unusual kind, something he had written but not dared share with Motochika before. Even now he wasn't sure if he would be able to stand in the same room as his lover whilst the older samurai read it; it would be far too embarrassing.

As for the other one, well... he simply wasn't sure how well it would be received.

Picking them up, the samurai turned them over in his hands before standing and heading downstairs. Mitsuhide had dressed in an appropriate manner for a festival; his kimono and hakama were exquisite and his hair left loose. No doubt Motochika would appreciate that by itself. The Hero of Tosa was never shy about conveying his appreciation for the way Mitsuhide dressed.

(Though if truth be told, Motochika seemed to appreciated Mitsuhide in anything he wore, which was rather shameless of him).

"Lord Motochika?" he called out when he reached the bottom floor, peering curiously into their living room.
