As promised, Eto went home at lunch in time to see Yuki preparing the table for them. She smiled and welcomed him with a hug when he showed himself on the door. He has been standing on the door for quite some time and was silently observing her before she noticed his presence.

Eto's POV

Watching her move around the kitchen with a calm expression on her face wrenched at my heart. I would have liked for her to continue living like this, if only there would never be a need to let her remember her past, if only…

She cannot be fully happy unless she remembers and accepts…

Sachiko's words filled my thoughts.

But how could I make her remember without breaking her?

Break the ice that covers her heart…

What if by breaking that ice, her heart would break as well? Will I be enough to mend it? Will I be enough to save her from breaking apart?

As she smiled at me, I forced a smile as well. For now, I just have to pretend that nothing is wrong. I will pretend nicely that I didn't know how atrocious her past was. I would pretend that I know nothing of how she was almost shattered beyond mending…

The pool of blood on the floor…

I shook my head to push the vicious image from my mind. I need to be calm and collected when I face her, otherwise she might feel that something is amiss. The least I would like is for her to get worried at her condition, not now that she is pregnant with our first child.

So, shall I keep pretending for the following 8 months?

When she took my hand and led me to my chair, I felt the warmth emanating from her. She has changed. The first time I met her, she has an icy aura around her. Maybe the pregnancy is doing wonders on her.

She showed a surprised look at me when I held her hand and pulled her to me, placing my other hand on her belly. She blushed profusely.

Please, grow up healthy inside there, my child. Help me keep your mother together. Teach me how to save her, for you, for me, for our family.

Yuki's POV

I felt somebody watching me as I was preparing the food on the kitchen first before bringing it to the dining area. I knew that it must be Eto, but I pretended not to notice him. I feel great knowing that he is there, it makes me feel safe.

No one can save you, Yuki.

My hands trembled a little when I heard the voice in my head.

Recently, I have been hearing lots of things on my mind. Must be my subconscious berating me for something bad I did in the past. But no matter how hard I think about it, I could only get muddled images. If I tried harder to focus, I feel like my head would break in too much pain from the concentration.

This is not good. I have to be careful especially now that I am pregnant. Our first child. We would have a complete family then, my dream will come true soon.

As I smiled when I look at Eto, I saw how his expression was a mixture of angst and fury. To whom it was directed kept me thinking for a while. Until I felt his hand on my belly. I blushed at the intimacy of his touch, now his

could not have that. As much as possible, he hoped that she won't remember anything until she has given birth. He is afraid that if she remembers while she is pregnant, he might lose not just Yuki, but their unborn child as well. If only, he could be sure that she won't remember it then he would be willing not to talk about it ever.

He would do everything in his power to prevent it from happening. For the first time in his life, he prayed that fate would lean on his side.

The next morning, Yuki woke up with a nice smell on the bedroom. She opened her eyes and realized that Eto was sitting on a chair near the bed. He has a beautiful smile on his lips.

"Good morning, Yuki."

"Good morning, Eto, " she relied, still half-asleep.

She made an effort to get up, and her hand covered her mouth when she realized that the nice smell was coming from so many pink and blue rose petals spread on top of her, on the bed. It was like her blanket turned into a miniature garden of roses.

"Eto!" She looked at him, her eyes filled with happiness and gratitude at this romantic gesture.

"Did you like it?" He asked, helping her to get up.

"Of course I do! I mean, who would not like this? I love it Eto, thank you." She hugged him tightly.

Eto put his arms around her waist. Then, he tapped her back lightly after a while.

"Ok, go and brush your teeth now Yuki, or you wanna kiss me first?"

He was just teasing, but she felt embarrassed that she hugged him when she just woke up. Her breath must smell so bad.

Without another word, she went to the bathroom and brushed her teeth. She also washed her face. When she opened the door, Eto was standing right there. With a bouquet of the same pink and blue roses.

She put her hands over her chest in a gesture of surprise and excitement.

"Let me court you properly, Yuki. It might be a bit late but let me do it, ok?"

Yuki could not say anything. She's lost for words. All she could do was nod her head while tears streamed down her cheeks.
