Chrysanthemum Tea (Japan X Reader)Chrysanthemum Tea
The sun glowed gently in the clear blue sky, its rays peeking through the leaves of lush trees in a beautifully manicured garden. Summer had ended, yet the remnants of its warmth still lingered in the air.
You opened your window and immediately a gentle breeze flowed in, carrying with it the sweet scent of autumn flowers blossoming in your garden. You smiled and closed your eyes for a moment, enjoying the aroma and the soft wind on your skin.
"Oh my, I better start preparing now," you mumbled silently to yourself.
You reached for the apron and tied it loosely around your waist. You then proceeded to gather various cooking utensils and ingredients and arranged them neatly on a large wooden table in the middle of your kitchen. Even though you were not a professional chef, from your extensive experience in the kitchen, you knew that mise en place was key to successful cooking.
And today of all days, you hoped to get everything right, since you were inviting your c

A new day brought on by a magnificent sunrise and birds chirping happily.
At least that's how it would start in a perfect world.
But seeing as how it isn't, instead you woke up to the always unwelcome screeching of your alarm clock. After finally managing to shut it off, you open your eyes where your vision is greeted with the amazing sight of rain: nothing but rain and clouds colored in a depressing gray.
Actually, the weather described how you felt perfectly.
Today was your birthday. Usually that would make you estatic beyond words. But it just wouldn't be the same without..
My sweetheart, you finished in your thoughts as a melancholy sigh passed your lips.
You glance at a picture next to your clock of your dear husband of nearly two years, Kiku Honda.
You loved this man with all of your heart and soul. When you first told others about him, some were very happy for you

From what he could tell, it wasn't japanese food you were cooking, but a simple stirfry with a sauce of honey, lemon and ginger. Not that he minded. Anything cooked by you tasted amazing. There was also a small undertone of chocolate too.
You felt someone watching you and you turned around, a home-made pocky stick hanging out of your mouth. You smiled and held

Since you lived with your cousin, it wasn't unusual for him to walk into your house because he owned the place after all. He took you in after both your parents died two years ago when you were about eleven years old. Since then, it had always been the two of you living together. However, this was the first time he had such a calm yet urgent tone when bringing over a guest.
"What is it?" You asked him and turned your attention to the Japanese boy next to him. He was about your age with short black hair and pale skin. His dull brown eyes were downcast and looked blank as he stared at the ground. You noticed he was wearing a coat that was several sizes too big for hi

'Hello Kiku!' Exclaimed a female voice from behind the aforementioned male. Kiku stopped drawing hastily and nervously turned round in his seat, closing his precious sketchpad with a "snap".
'______-chan, how are you?
______ happily sat next to her Japanese friend, plonking herself down and swinging round in her chair to face him, smiling.
'I'm good, thanks. Watcha drawing?'
Kiku shifted nervously in his seat, not meeting her eyes.
'Nothing important ______-chan. Is there something you wanted?'
______ blinked, surprised.
'Nope, I just wanted to see you.'
Truth was, Kiku had been acting strange around her for awhile and she was getting a bit worried about her friend.

'I am fine.'
'Oh. Cool ' She nodded at him in an offhand kind of way. Not that Kiku saw it or anything because, man, that crack in the paint on the wall was really interesting.

Today was the day you were finally going to confess your feelings to him. After years of loving him in silence, you realized that the only way you could have a relationship with the timid man was if you made the first move. Though it wasn't exactly conventional, you knew there was no way Kiku would ever initiate anything, and you couldn't take him being oblivious to your feelings any longer.

Trying to remember this man was a pain in the head, but it was necessary before you give yourself in to Kami.
