Notes: Nineth in my thirty themes for saintseiyayaoi. Theme 9, The way back (home).

Stray.
 
Virgo Shaka is not of the habit to take in strays, much less allow them to stay for an indefinite amount of time. Considering the state of the Virgo temple, of course, it is a wonder that he wants to stay, but Shaka hasn’t really figured out a way to get rid of him.
 
To tell the truth – and he always tells the truth – Shaka is not even sure he wants to get rid of him.
 
Mu is still terribly vexing to deal with and his least favorite person in all Sanctuary, but Shaka’s starting to suspect the mirthful Aries saint might know more than he’s letting on between sips of an herbal tea that Shaka really wants to know the recipe for.
 
Saga, meanwhile, comes and goes, doing errands and being as solicitous and quiet and unobtrusive as possible, but it never matters where the Goddess sees fit to send him – training grounds in South America or her mansion back in Japan – when Saga returns, he always finds a way to stay another night or two in the Virgo temple.
 
Shaka has never known himself to be a rhetoric master, truth is pretty straight forward for him, always has been and always will be, but he’s starting to get torn between being impressed by Saga’s abilities and frustrated at his own inability to make up his mind.
 
“At the very least, you must admit he is helping to tidy up the mess,” Mu comments almost demurely, shrugging as he points to Saga – who’s quite busy sweeping the backyard of the temple.
 
“Neither the temple nor her guardian need help tidying up,” Shaka murmurs sharply, but as always, his words merely bounce off Mu’s calm demeanor.
 
The Virgo saint’s starting to suspect his friend knows something he doesn’t, and it’s infuriating him.
 
“But nevertheless you’ll get it, it seems,” Mu replies placidly, “at least until you see fit to sent him down to his own temple.”
 
Shaka feels the uncouth and terribly childish impulse to glare and rudely tell Mu to leave him the hell alone, but he refrains from it and merely sighs a very put upon sigh.
 
He really should have stayed dead.

*smirk* Love Mu. Very much the way I imagine him to be. And I like Shaka's continued insistence that he doesn't like Mu. Saga's so helpful.... O:)

::double cuddles:: Nice of dear, old Mu to bring tea over to the Virgo Temple, but only enough for himself and Shaka, apparently (since the "errand boy" is left to sweep the porch ^^). I really like Saga's personality here-- like a puppy dog, willing to humble himself (and that's REALLY saying something of this post-Hades Saga!) and kind of cling onto the edges just so he can stay near Shaka... ^____^ <3 <3 <3 So cuuuuute~~~ But I wonder how he'll get from this state to earning Shaka's respect AND love??
