"Life's unpredictable, Ryo. The Kami have taught me to gowith the flow, and I manage. Still. It's short. Shinko has been my bodyguard for years now, and I know how he feels about me, and I like to give him enough credit to assume he's aware the feeling's mutual. But," she gave an annoyed laugh, "I'm his charge and his master. It wouldn't be proper."
"Life's too short to worry about being proper, Ryo. I think that we'd all be better off if we were just true to ourselves, you know?"
"Happier, anyway." She added glumly with a bit of a shrug, pulling Ryo's head down and giving him another kiss.
