He would realize something is different but wouldn’t really pay to much attention at first. The stand offish way you stand to the side throws him back for a bit. He wonders silently if she was put off by his campaign knowing how she feels about war. He was doing this for everyone thiugh so he brushes off his concern.
When you finally retire for the night he notices subtle changes on her body. He dreamt of it while he was gone and
things seem different. “Do you like what you see?” She asks as he stares as she changes.
“You know I do.” He replies.
“Well we are glad to here it.” She says and he looks at her funny.
“We?” He asks.
“Your child and I. Nobunaga we are having a child.” She says and now everything makes sense. The words have a calming effect over him and he smiles and looks at her again.
He knows something is wrong. Why is she over there off to the side. Why is she not coming to greet me? He just knows something happened while he was gone. Though her smile is there and looks bright, he just knows.
He is worried but he has so much to do still. He wants to carve out some time just for her to find out. He finally gets a few minutes to himself. His reports from the castle staff was nothing was wrong with the Princess. However he knew something was there.
He goes to his rooms where she is working on something new. It seems so small. She looks up and smiles.
“Surprise.” She says with her face beaming.
“Whats this?” He asks as he looks at the small outfit.
“Hideyoshi we are going to have a child.” She says.
“We are?” He asked wondering how, why, what was going on.
“ we are.” He dropped to his knees and smiled.
“I thought something was wrong.” He whispered. “This is wonderful.”
He looked her over the second she came into view. He could see something was different. He had an idea of what as well. When the people and horses came into view he was watching her. She was shining.
Her brightness was there and he knew. He just knew. She stood off to the side and looked for him. He made his way around the crowd and came up behind her. She was still looking for him.
“Do you have something to tell me?” He asked in her ear.
“Of course you would know.” She said laughing. “Inplanned out this whole thing. Wasabi is going to be hurt you didn’t let her tell you.”
“She is a deer she doesn’t know.” He replied.
“But she is wearing a sign.” The princess said.
“Then for wasabi i will pretend.” He said, “you haven’t told me either.”
“Maybe later.” She replied.
He looks around and sees her. The princess was waiting by the gates some distance away. He dismounted and rushed to her side. He went to pick her up and spin her when she placed up a hand. “Don’t please.” She said.
“Princess.” He asked.
“Spinning will make me sick, nari.” She explained.
“But?” He asked.
“Nari i have something to tell you.” She said.
“What is it?” He asked worried.
“We are going to have a child.” She said smiling.
“We are?” He asked surprised. This was not something he planned out.
“We are.” She smiled and he hugged her tight.
He wasn’t surprised to see her standing there. He was surprised she didn’t fight her way closer. She just stood there looking like the princess she was. She waited for him to walk up to her. He kissed her hard as he walked up.
“Kenshin.” She said breathlessly.
“My love?” He asked.
“Come to our rooms when you can. I have something to show you.” She replied.
He turned and yelled, “no one disturb us.”
He followed in her wake and then when he entered the room he saw she added some thing.”what is the meaning of this?” He asked.
“What would they be used for?” She asked.
“A child.” He said as he looked at her and she nodded. The pair wasn’t seen for the rest of the day.
No shame he will look at her and know. He will walk up to her as he could see over the crowd. They parted for him as he walked towards the princess who was talking to Sasuke. “My goddess do you have something to tell me?”
“Shingen don’t you know to let me tell you.” She said laughing.
“No.” He replied.
“Well we are going to have….” she started.
“An angel.” He said smiling.
She shook her head but he didn’t leave her side for the rest of the day.
He was doing things and giving orders. He barely looked at her. She was waiting and smiling at him. She waited for hours, while he worked.
“Dummy you don’t need to stand there.” He said to her.
“I missed you too.” She laughed.
“What do you want?” He asked.
“I need to tell you something.” She said.
“Can it wait? I am busy.” He said.
“It can for another few months.” She said as she looked at him.
“A few months?” He asked.
“We are going to have a child.” She said.
“Why didn’t you say something!” He exclaimed.
“I just did.” She said.
“Someone take over! I am going to be a dad!” He yelled.
