A Little Earth
by Rana Eros

Set in the Death Becomes Him universe, between "Move Right Through Me" and "Hair's Breadth." Betaed by Eliza.

Hisoka's small house has a side garden. Not much for plantlife, he lets it grow wild. Then Oriya moves in and Hisoka wakes up to find he's already left the bed. He's outside, clearing away overgrowth, and when Hisoka joins him, his contentment is like a balm.

"What are your plans?" Hisoka asks at last, and is rewarded with Oriya's genuine smile.

"I thought I'd learn to garden. Perhaps after breakfast, we can go see if the library has any useful books on the subject."

Hisoka considers asking why, but when Oriya starts to hum, he decides it can wait.
