Prompt: [ profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 08. Mulled wine and hot cocoa.

A quick fight with a youma - made easier by the presence of the Shitennou - and copious amounts of mulled wine in celebration of an easy fight, brokered an easy peace between the Senshi and Shitennou. They had packed into Mamoru’s place again, conversations splintering into corners, although Mina seemed to effortlessly float away every time Ken came near.

Jed had gone into the kitchen to get some more wine, poking around in the cabinets to see if Mamoru had any snacks.

"Oh-" Rei had turned the corner, and noticed him alone.

"I- sorry, I’ll leave," Jed said, picking up his mug of wine. He brushed past her in the doorway, but her next sentence stopped him in his tracks.

"Every time I look at you, I remember what you looked like, burning alive," she murmured, her tone almost apologetic.

Jed turned slowly to face her. She had a defensive look on her face, but none of the outrage and anger from the previous week. "Shit, Rei. I’m sorry. I’m an asshole," Jed said.

"Breaking news," Rei muttered under her breath.

"I- here, does this help?" Jed said quickly, scrubbing his hand over his face. His features shifted, darkened. His hair grew. When he removed his hand, he was looking back at her with Nico’s face and Zory’s hair.

A reluctant laugh escaped her lips. "You look ridiculous."

He took a quick look at his reflection in the microwave door. "Nico’s not meant to be blond." He ran another hand over his face, shifting back to his original looks.

"No, I’d say not."

The silence stretched between them for a moment. "You did what you had to do," Jed said.

"I don’t regret it."

"You shouldn’t. If I ever -" Jed swallowed, throat working around the words, far more serious than she had ever seen him. "Don’t hesitate. Some of the others would." He left before Rei could form a reply.
