An Easter To Remember: Haruhito Amano One Shot
Although I have a bad case of can’twriteanythinggooditis, when this idea popped into my head at 2 o’clock in the morning I just had to jot it down. Dedicated to my fellow Haruhito fangirl, the lovely alazymoon. Because if it weren’t for her nice comments about my fics I would have given up on writing all together.
Happy Easter, everyone!
For the past week Haruhito’s behaviour has been even more strange than usual. You have lost count of how many times he has scurried off to his room the minute he set foot inside the house, or hid things behind his back whenever you entered the room. Not forgetting the hushed conversations with Cerby which seemed to be of great importance, judging by the serious expression on his face.
Normally all of these things would be a cause for concern but you have been too wrapped up in planning the perfect surprise for your quirky boyfriend. Determined to make your first Easter as a couple as special as possible, you have spent hours looking for the prettiest decorations and the tastiest gourmet chocolate money can buy. You even considered buying a rather risqué bunny outfit but the thought of wearing something so skimpy set your cheeks aflame and you quickly decided against it.
Huffing and puffing, you drag your feet as you lug numerous bags of Easter goodies back home. Thanks to Rein’s assistance you managed to get everything you needed in one trip. Although you had to bribe the sweet toothed Angel with enough chocolate to feed a small army, it was a small price to pay. He follows behind laden with twice as many bags as you, mumbling under his breath as he goes.
The pair of you stagger inside the house, carefully dropping the bags onto the floor. As the feeling slowly returns to your fingers, you clap your hands together, ready to transform the entire house into a pastel paradise, strewn with countless bunnies and chicks in various guises.
However, Rein is easily distracted by the sweet and spicy aroma wafting through the air, his feet moving of their own accord towards the kitchen.
You walk into the kitchen to find Haruhito sporting a pair of white bunny ears and tail while he puts the finishing touches to his latest culinary creation.
He turns to face you wearing a childlike grin, “Happy Easter!”
"Good God man! What on Earth are ye wearin’?" Rein asks, the look on his face a mixture of disbelief and disgust.
"Haru, you look so cute!" you exclaim, reaching up to gently tweak his slightly crooked left ear.
"I’m glad you like them."
He pulls a matching pair from his pocket and softly places them onto your head.
"You two should see yerselves. Ye’d never see me in a pair o’ them."
Smirking, Haruhito dips his hand into his other pocket.
"Oh no. Ye’ll have te catch me first."
Rein’s eyes widen in horror as you and your boyfriend start to close in on him. Just before you get to him he breaks into a run. After half an hour of chasing the stubborn Angel in circles around the kitchen, you finally succeed in getting him to wear the bright pink bunny ears.
"See, I knew ye’d make a mighty handsome bunny." you tease him, in your best Irish accent.
"Don’t be daft, lass. I look ridiculous!"
Despite his disgruntled tone, the small smile stretching across his face tells you that he is enjoying himself a lot more than he would care to admit.
"I didn’t think you knew anything about Easter, Haruhito." you murmur, scanning the kitchen table which is covered with homemade treats.
"I had to read a lot of books but I wanted to surprise you."
The three of you gather around the huge pile of food, eager to tuck in.
Finding them impossible to resist, you decide to try one of the chocolate eggs first. But you soon discover all is not what it seems. Instead of being hard and hollow, just as you would expect, these oddities are in fact soft and squishy.
Full of excitement, the enthusiastic blonde confirms your suspicions, “They’re boiled eggs dipped in chocolate.”
As you watch him sinking his teeth into one of the disgusting delicacies, it takes all you have to fight the urge to vomit.
Rein studies a plate of freshly baked buns, the confusion evident on his face.
"Why do they all have faces and why do they look so angry?"
"Because they’re hot cross buns." Haruhito replies, as if it was the most obvious answer in the world.
Clearly amused by the naive Demon’s response, Rein sniggers.
"Yer supposed te put crosses on-"
Desperate to stop him ruining all of your boyfriend’s hard work, you swiftly stuff one of the grumpy looking buns into his mouth.
"Here, Rein. Why don’t you try one?" you growl, smiling sweetly all the while.
Leaning back in your chair, you discreetly unbutton your jeans, giving your full belly some much needed relief. Completely unaffected by the vast amount of food he has consumed, Haruhito jumps up from his seat. Looking over his shoulder he flashes you a dazzling smile, his warm pewter eyes shining with excitement.
“Don’t move. I’ve saved the best until last.” he yells, as he practically bounces upstairs.
Once he is sure that his former partner is out of ear shot, the raven haired Irishman leans across the table, his voice barely more than a whisper.
“Why haven’t ye told him that he’s got almost everything wrong?”
“He always tries so hard, I just don’t have the heart to tell him. Besides today has been fun, right?”
Unconvinced, Rein lets out an exasperated sigh, “Aye, if ye say so lass.”
A high pitched squeal fills the room as your eyes land on the very fluffy and very real brown bunny rabbit nestled in Haruhito’s arms.
“Do you like it? I read that it’s traditional to give people chocolate bunnies for Easter.”
Hurtling towards him at full speed you throw your arms around the kind-hearted blonde, nuzzling your face into your new pet’s silky, soft fur.
“She’s so pretty!”
"Not as pretty as my little bunny." Haruhito coos, tenderly stroking your hair with his free hand.
“Aw, I love you Haru.”
A sharp cough from the other side of the room interrupts your romantic moment.
“Can ye stop it with all the mushy stuff? Yer makin’ me nauseous.”
“It looks like somebunny is jealous. Don’t worry we love you too, cutie pie.” you quip, giggling as his cheeks turn a deep shade of red.
“Of course, we’ll always love you, Rein.” Haruhito chirps, causing him to squirm even more.
In an effort to cover his embarrassment Rein quickly changes the subject.
“Don’t we have a whole house te decorate? We best be gettin’ on with it.”
With the help of your two favourite men, each room looks like something straight out of a storybook, every nook and cranny filled with Springtime cheer.
The three of you sit back on the sofa, chocolate at the ready as you admire your handiwork.
It may not be the most conventional one you have ever had but it certainly is an Easter to remember. And it is all thanks to the loveable Demon you have the privilege of sharing every day of your life with.
