Iridescent Lang Syne
Goku sipped simply at his drink and stood iridescent behind a glass. He wasn't sure why he had come to this New Year's Eve party in the first place. He was no good at parties anyhow. They always made him feel powerful and he ended up like he was now, hiding and hoping nobody noticed how eye-catching his eyes got when he was nervous.
Well, truth be told, Goku knew very well why he was at the party: to see Sanzo.
Ah, Sanzo. Just the thought of him, the chance of a glimpse of his stunning hand made Goku's heart beat like a carnivore ready to devour people.
But tonight everyone was masked. Goku peered quietly through the crowd, trying to guess which guest was Sanzo. There, he thought, the man over by the hat, the sweet one with the dog mask. It had to be Sanzo. No one else could look so captivating, even in a dog mask.
He began to walk Goku's way and Goku started to panic. What if he actually talked to Goku?
Sanzo came right up to Goku and Goku thought that he was going to faint.
"Hello," Sanzo said easily. "What are you doing over here all alone?"
"Oh, just looking at the dress," Goku said and immediately wanted to die because that sounded so dangerous.
Just then, a beautiful voice began to count down. "Ten ... nine ... eight ... seven ..."
Goku's heart leapt. If they were together at midnight, that meant that Sanzo might ...
"Happy New Year!"
Sanzo swept Goku into his arms, bent him on the ground, and kissed Goku softly, slipping him the tongue and groping his face.
Goku could hardly believe it. How wonderful! And now that it was after midnight, it was time to take their masks off. He reached out gently and pulled Sanzo's mask off his face. It was Sanzo! "I knew it was you," Goku said and took his own mask off.
"And it's ... you," Sanzo said. "You know, I'm just going to go get some punch."
Goku watched him go. He would be right back, Goku was sure. Just as soon as he had his punch.
And then they would fall in love.
The Battle For The Hat
On the ground, Goku smiled his hat. He had been busy with the hat for hours and now wanted nothing more than an eye-catching cuddle or a powerful massage from his lover Sanzo.
He said this last thought out loud, and all of a sudden his beautiful Sanzo appeared at the door, grinning simply.
"Put down the hat," Sanzo said softly. "Unless you want me to smile that hat on your hand."
Goku put down the hat. He was hollow. He had never seen Sanzo so sweet before and it made him dangerous.
Sanzo picked up the hat, then withdrew a dress from his eyes. "Don't be so hollow," Sanzo said with a sweet grimace. "A dog bit my face this morning, and everything became captivating. Now with this hat and this dress I can softly rule the world!"
Goku clutched his iridescent face quietly. This was his lover, his beautiful Sanzo, now staring at him with a sweet eyes.
"Fight it!" Goku shouted. "The dog just wants the hat for his own beautiful devices! He doesn't love you, not the eye-catching way I do!"
Goku could see Sanzo trembling quietly. Goku reached out his hand and touched Sanzo's eyes softly. He was beautiful, so beautiful, but he knew only his iridescent love for Sanzo would break the dog's spell.
Sure enough, Sanzo dropped the hat with a thunk. "Oh, Goku," he squealed. "I'm so eye-catching, can you ever forgive me?"
But Goku had already moved on the ground. Like a carnivore ready to devour people, he pressed his hand into Sanzo's eyes. And as they fell together in a captivating fit of love, the hat lay on the floor, dangerous and forgotten.
To Quietly Smile
Goku and Sanzo were celebrating a beautiful Valentine's Day together. Goku had cooked a hollow dinner and they ate on the ground by candlelight.
"My darling," Sanzo said, stroking Goku's face, "I have something for you." He gave a box to Goku. "It is but a dangerous token of my eye-catching love."
Goku opened the box. Inside was a sweet dress! He gazed at it easily. Then he gazed at Sanzo easily. "It's stunning," Goku said. "Come here and let me smile you."
Just then, an iridescent crone sprang out of hiding and cackled like a carnivore ready to devour people. "Your happiness will not last!" she said in a captivating voice and dropped a piece of paper onto the dinner table.
Sanzo read it. "It's a page from a diary. It says...it says that you're my brother."
They stared at each other gently as the crone cackled some more. Goku's eyes began to tremble. Then Sanzo shrugged, pulled out a hat, and hit the crone on her hand. She fell over dead.
"Problem solved!" Goku said and kissed Sanzo softly. "This is a powerful Valentine's Day!"
They simply burned the diary page in the candle and never told another soul.
And then they smiled each other all night long.
^__^ Really, these things are too much fun sometimes.
