Little Light of Love
by Rana Eros

Written for Rune and Karot, as a thank you for introducing me to the Pretty that is GetBackers. Title taken from the Peter Gabriel song of the same name, featured in the movie "The Fifth Element."

Ginji sparks when he sleeps. Not much, just enough to look like he's sleeping in a cloud of fireflies, flaring and settling around him.

Lightning bugs, an American girl told Ban before he met Ginji. They were called lightning bugs back home. She'd been flirting with him, terrible Japanese and sweet smile and sunstreaks in her hair. At the time, it had been enough.

Before he met Ginji.

Ginji throws an arm across his chest without waking up, and his nerves tingle with the sparks. It's not unpleasant. Ginji curls closer, breathes warm in his ear.

That's not unpleasant either.
