Author’s Notes: A special thank you to the wonderful mods and to my lovely betas and cheerleaders: A, A, W, and D. I never would have finished this without your help. Dear rurounihime, I was both thrilled and nervous when I received you as my recipient. You are such a wonderful writer that it would be impossible to match your skilled prose. However, reading your stories has given me such pleasure that I’m glad to be able to give something back to you. I tried to incorporate as many of your requests as possible even the faked marriage. Enjoy.
