Drabble meme fill, prompt 21  

Title: Wielding well
Author: manaika
Word count: 308
Rating: K+/PG-13 whatever you call it. I doubt it will cause a major trauma.
Warnings: words with double meanings? None, really, besides the obvious ones – shounen-ai...ish.
Prompt: Sano x Shiranui, boys with toys

Summary: Shiranui likes pointed things. Sano likes things that shoot. The gun vs. the spear – whose victory is it to take? Made for lj’s shinsenlove drabble meme, prompt 21.

Disclaimer: I do not own Hakuoki. This was written sorely for the purpose to please someone’s fantasy (not to make money). Meaning that if I did own Hakuoki, such requests probably wouldn’t be necessary. However I do own the...work?

Can I drop a claim after I posted the fill? *sigh* guess not.
Sorry. I think I...failed. Whoever requested this, please forgive me...

Wielding well

They were standing against each other, on different sides of the field, meeting somewhere in the middle, their eyes never leaving the oponent. The fight was undecided, their battles fought on equal grounds.

Shiranui pulled his gun out and pointed it at him, pulling the hammer back, a sly grinn playing across his features.

„My gun against your rod. I wonder which one of our toys is stronger.“

Harada grasped his weapon, bringing it forward to point at the foe.

„It’s a spear.“

Shiranui licked his lips.
„Mmm...A pointed end... I like that.“
In spite of himself, Harada found himself smiling at the innuendo.
„And it’s not a toy.“
Shiranui’s grinn widened impossibly.
„I like that even better.“

They lunged at each other, the spear and the gun meeting in a deadly play, they already knew by heart, by playing it too many times already to keep count. A shot, a stab, a never ending chase between two friends, two foes and something in between, never to be decided, but still continuing, as if waiting for something neither of them could name, but both sensing it’s presence. It ended in a draw, with their weapons aimed at each other, huge, manic grins on their faces. A sense of déja vu was in the air, but this time, things were different, they both knew, they both saw it in the other’s eyes.

„Why didn’t you shoot?“ Harada asked.
„Thought it would kill the mood.“ Came the reply accompanied by a luscious grin. Sano grinned right back.
„Why? I like things that shoot.“ He licked his lips for accent. Shiranui’s eyes sparkled.
„That’s interesting. Coming onto you, or into you?“
„Either way is fine.“

It was decided.

At the very least, bei it weapons or toys, either were useful only in the hands of someone who could wield them well.
