"Mahir, then. Where’s a name like that come from, if I may ask?"
"It’s a traditional name. Means skilled or wise. I think he’s more the former, but still. Not all the people who come to Iwa are from the east."
He had a point. Not that Temari would ever admit that. “‘That camel’ probably just wants us both to be happy. ‘That camel’ also needs a name.”
"I already have a name for him; Mahir. Seeing as I intend to make him a summon, and he is already smarter than most other camels, I think it fitting."
"You’re a jinchuriki, not a demon. And look, you’re upsetting the camel again."
"We are more demon than human in the eyes of the world. The chakra from the demons is a part of us now, and we’re demons through and through." He looked over at the camel, sighing. "That camel is going to make it very hard to do anything."
"Somehow I doubt that."
"I do not. I am already a monster and a demon; I can only imagine what my progeny would be." The camel seemed to frown; the parents were fighting again.
"A very large human being. I don’t think tailed beasts get passed down like that."
"A large being, likely more beast than man, if the trend continues, who would probably eat human flesh and kill anyone who came near. You’d likely have to keep it in a cage."
"I can handle them." She walked after the camel, not waiting for Han but knowing he’d follow after. "After all, it’s just a camel. Not like it’s a human baby."
"Forgive me, but any biological child of mine would likely cause the end of the world. I can only imagine what sort of beast would come from my line."
The blonde gave a small smile. “Well, he seems to think that was a good thing.” She pointed her thumb at the camel. “Come on, then. Let’s take him home.”
As if on cue, the camel bounced along towards her home, seeing as it already knew where to go. “Your brothers might try to kill me if they realize it sees us as parents.”
//See? My finger slipped
"I look far too happy."
"You can’t even see your mouth, how can you possibly look happy?"
"The eyes. I do not have such a jovial expression."
The many beautiful faces of Kurotsuchi
"Hn. Come here and refresh my memory, then." She looked up at him expectantly, hands on her hips.
Without missing a beat he placed his hands on her arms, inadvertently pinning them there so he could lift her up to eye level, and planted quick kiss on her, before placing her right back down. “There, I have solved your curiosity.” Luckily, the camel seemed to not be so worried anymore.
Temari blinked up at him. “We’ve done it before. Why would I find it ‘abhorrent’, as you say?”
"We have, although I do not remember you enjoying it too much, or perhaps that was just my poor memory on such things."
She snorted. “Maybe we should kiss and make up,” she teased, grinning up at Han.
"Perhaps we should, although I thought you would find that to be abhorrent. Unless the camel was trying to set us up together, in an attempt to make us happy." Perhaps he was a bit too smart, but then again, that was why he was going to be a summon.
