    If all it took was a few kitty kisses, Scaramouche was surely doomed. Lunette snickered softly, stroking his chin affectionately, "I would never call you easy, darling, you've high standards nowadays, no?" she purred and kept her eyes on his. Ooh, what a devious grin~ It was always one of her favorite expressions, how his lip slightly curled up and a fang from his canines poked out... It made her fluff up and her heart race. And as if that wasn't enough cardio exercise, the devious fiend shook a cute bag and it made a very appealing rustling noise. Ears perked forward, eyes widened and glimmered as her nose scrunched. Tiny, quiet chitters escaped her lips as she tried to sit patiently, tail swaying and fur fluffing up.

    "Ooh!" she mewed and got closer, hands acting more like paws as she batted at the bag. The bag was placed on the table, and Lunette took another chunk of the cupcake and ate it happily before brushing her hands off. "You make every day feel fabulous, darling~" Lunette purred and rumbled in her seat, staring at Scaramouche lovingly. Oh, but maybe it was a good time to take a gander at her gift! It reminded her that she needed to get to work on his Christmas gift, but that'll come later. Dainty fingers picked an edge of the tissue paper and gently pulled it out, removing a few of them before finding a box.

    "I don't doubt they're priceless, Mochi! You do so much for me and everyone else..." she paused and gripped the box tenderly, protectively, before leaning over and kissing his chin once more. Before she got into more loving and touching, Lunette opened the leather box and paused, gazing upon the jewelry set inside. A beautiful pair of earrings, a ring that fit her delicate finger, and above all else, a choker with an enchanted stone. Was this from the caves that Scaramouche had gone...? He went out into a dank and filthy cavern, dealing with deadly beasties, all so he could find and create...

    Sniffle...

    Lunette set the box down softly, hands then grabbing a few tissues she had been sent out to fetch, delicately wiping her eyes. "It... it's gorgeous..." she muttered, wiping her eyes once more and taking in a deep breath. Gulping loudly, her hands went behind her head as she unfastened her current necklace, an indention in her fur evident that the collar was rarely removed. Laying it on the table, the Anitra took the beautiful gift, adjusted her hair, and fastened the clasp around her neck. A finger brushed against the stone, feeling a... an odd sensation. It... it was new. It made her feel lighter... but only for a brief second.

    Pushing that aside for now, her hand took Scaramouche's and gave it a gentle squeeze before sticking out her other hand. "Would... would you like to place the ring on my finger?" she smiled softly, eyes large and glimmering with a hint of tears being held back.

    Ack, chin strokes! His other other weakness! A foot involuntarily tapped and fidgeted against the floor. "H-Hmmhmhmhrrrghnn...~!" No, please call Scaramouche easy because that's what he was. 'High' standards or not, the android wasn't fooling anyone - especially Lunette. How could he? His fingers were already grabbing and kneading the Anitra's pillowy sides! "M-Mmmmy stand-d-d-ddards are only f-f-or-r-r you-u-u...~" Ugh, glitch in his vocalizer...

    Sniffle...

    Hm...?

    Auditory receptors heightened with a prickle of electricity, the optics behind Scaramouche's LED display refocusing upon the fluffy organic beside him. O... Oh, was she crying? W-Were these tears of joy? Another taco moment? She certainly wasn't sobbing out of misery or soul-crushing sadness... r-right? It took all of the robot's willpower not to freak out or make a worry-wort of himself, but he somehow managed. Amazingly, Scaramouche did. "Mhm~!" He reached over for a generous handful of tissues (not the kind in her gift bag) and offered them to Lunette with a fond smile. "Surprise, mi vefo~! Remember that day where I braved the nasty wilderness and went spelunkin'? Well, there ya have it! I went searchin' for the purrfect materials to make you a heartfelt gift~!" And boy what an excursion that had been. The poor android returned home smelling like damp earth and stale air! Ick, he also spent forever scrubbing it out... "I know it's nothin' flashy like diamond or gold," Scaramouche added, "but I also know that you're not a dame obsessed with puttin' on the ritz. 'Sides, opal and silver had the magical qualities I was lookin' for." You heard that right, Lunette - magical properties.

    "Hon, hon, hon~! Surprise times two, mi vefo!" The android guffawed and wore an innocent grin. For him, anyway. "You've probably felt a peculiar aura tickle your senses the exact moment ya put it on, but don't worry! That's the enchant I asked Alasdair for. He's a real cutie-pie~! I'm super grateful he managed to figure somethin' out, 'cause, y'know, robot and stuff." ...Oh right! He should elaborate more, huh? It'd be a damn good idea. "U-Um~!" Scaramouche flashed her an apologetic wince, his grin crooked. "I-It's a simple enchant, promise! Whenever you're feelin' sad or lonely, mi vefo, all ya gotta do is reach up and grasp the gemstone - it oughta help ya feel as if I'm right beside ya! A-Assumin' for some reason that I'm not, of course." He wisely omitted any mention of Lunette's mother in favor of keeping the mood buoyant.

    "Would... would you like to place the ring on my finger?"

    O... Oh goodness.

    Whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiir!

    Externally, it must've seemed as if Scaramouche had just shut down. He merely stared at Lunette, his optics trapped in a daze, and for the longest time it didn't seem like anyone was home. She'd know better by now. Internally, it felt as if the android's processes were on fire.

    A ring, a ring! She wants the ring set upon her finger! That's something reserved for weddings, wasn't it!?
    No, you dummy! The ring is clearly not a wedding ring. Comply with her wishes!
    You are the dummy, you great big clod! Such a gesture is not suitable for tonight's occasion. It breaks etiquette!
    To hell with etiquette; the master has made a demand and it will be satisfied.
    Technically, it was a question... A request.
    I like jazz.

    Ad infinitum.

    None of the above was of any help, however! Lunette had asked a question and questions demanded answers. What shall it be? "U-U-Um, s-s-s-sssssure-e-eee~!" Not the most confident but it'll suffice.

    An ungodly rattling wracked his metal frame as Scaramouche nervously reached over for the ring, his joints traitorous. Stupid body! Stupid everything! How was a 'bot supposed to play it cool if they were dangerously close to falling apart every time Lunette so much as looked at him? Sigh... Anyway, the ring. The ring that was incredibly pathetic in his gigantic hand and almost looked like a child's plaything. In hindsight, its design seemed so... banal. Almost amateurish.

    "I... I know it's not a masterful piece of work," Scaramouche uttered softly, feeling self-conscious. He tried his hardest not to frown and, for the most part, succeeded. "It's small, it's average, it's... not really much to look at, but..." But that didn't stop the warmth spreading through his chassis as the android gently slipped the ring onto Lunette's awaiting finger, his metal lips pulling into a soft smile. "But it looks beautiful on you, Lulu. It symbolizes a promise that I'll always be here for you no matter what." Saccharine? Sure, but such was the nature of a hopeless romantic. He raised the Anitra's hand and faintly turned her fingers in the soft candlelight, its flickering glow reflecting off the opal with a dazzling gleam. It wasn't the most lavish piece or even the most breathtaking, but it was hers - just like he was - and that was good enough for the robot. A metal palm suddenly caressed the Anitra's chin, fingers tenderly rubbing against fur. "...And it's a promise I have every intention of keepin'." What came next was nothing short of heart-stopping.

    He leaned forward and kissed her, their bodies and lips intertwined, as the world faded into a muted, forgotten canvas.

    So, that venture out into the dark and dangerous caves... it was for her. Something about that made her feel guilty, feel small. Not because she had a loving partner who would literally go to the ends of the earth for her, but because he could've been hurt. He could've been killed. And for what? A beautiful set of jewelry... for her. It was hard for her to stay positive, but she tried. She tried very hard, and smiled widely at the sentiment. Opal and silver for magical properties, huh? "Diamonds aren't as beautiful as opals, and certainly not as special." Diamonds were so plain and average in the Anitra's eyes, but gemstones had more to them. Certainly magical as well.

    Then the enchantment was explained. At first, Lunette wasn't sure about it as it felt the same as her previous one, but with an odd little tingle to it. Alasdair was mentioned, but not Sutekh, meaning Scaramouche avoided him, which... she was happy for. The last thing she wanted was to hear that the Guardian had belittled to bullied sweet Scaramouche. In addition to the original enchantment, a small and simple emotional one lay dormant until her fingers wrapped around the stone, for whenever she and the android were apart too long, or was without him for a few minutes, hours, or even days. "I see, that must've been very hard to do... thank you for caring enough to consider such a thing." Really, it was one of the nicer things anyone has ever done for her.

    The time it took Scaramouche to take the ring and place it on her finger caused Lunette to tilt her head and look a tad worried. His body also betrayed him, hinting he was nervous for some reason. Not only that, but once placed, he decided to belittle himself and his abilities! "This is the most loving gift anyone has ever given me, mi vefo... do not think it's simple or nothing spectacular. It means a great deal to me, and it always will." The promise would forever be worn, be it the ring, necklace or earrings, and she was happy to show them off, wearing them all the time, every day.

    Ahh, a kiss~ It was so strange how someone made of metal had such lovely and soft lips. Eyes closed, Lunette leaned forward and kissed back, any doubts in her mind and guilt from before melting away into nothingness as her chest heated up, and stomach felt light with butterflies. Whiskers gently poked and tickled against a metallic cheek, bristling up when contact was made and causing her nose to scrunch a bit ever so slightly. Gently pulling away as her eyes opened half-way, Lunette brought her ringed hand up to Scaramouche's jaw and tenderly brushed against it. "Thank you so very much for making today wonderful... it means a great deal to me... to be here with you."

    Oh? Oh oh oh? Did the android's sensors detect an expression of guilt trying to peek beneath Lunette's silky fur? Scaramouche quickly pointed a finger at the Anitra and laughed, "Hon~! You stop that, ya fuzzy brat. Yes, caves are dangerous. Yes, I could've been hurt or killed. But ya forget one crucial thing: I was Aku's No. 1, baby~! In laymen's terms: that means I'm somewhat competent at what I do." Was it the robot's dainty frame or his general foppishness? How come no one took his claim seriously!? "Ah well..." Scaramouche pursed his metal lips and casually flicked a wrist. "The point is, Lulu, don't worry a single hair on that darlin' head of yours, 'kay? I knew what I was gettin' into~! ...Kinda!" Grungy and Tim had not been accounted for, but those were just frivolous details the android needn't bother explaining. "And honestly," he smiled, optics delighted slivers, "the hardest part was keepin' Fido out of the loop, just as ya said~! What's a few hostile cavemen compared to Dog Breath, huh?"

    "This is the most loving gift anyone has ever given me, mi vefo... do not think it's simple or nothing spectacular. It means a great deal to me, and it always will."

    "O-Oh, uh... hon~!" Oops. Scaramouche frowned and felt his chassis heat up several degrees; looks like old habits were harder to break than he thought! "S-Sorry, mi vefo. I d-didn't mean to put myself down, honest! It's just, um... I'm not quite the experienced jeweler or silversmith, y'know? Jack-of-all-trades but a master of none, he he... he~!" H-Hopefully Lunette wasn't disappointed in his - oh, what was the android thinking? Of course she wasn't! She even said this was the most loving gift ever, ya dingus.

    A low murmur rumbled from his enchanted vocalizer. "W-Well, everythin' does look beautiful on ya..." So mission accomplished, right?

    Damn right it was, because Lunette's touch was like crack cocaine and the Anitra seemed positively over the moon with her birthday gifts. The sensation of her whiskies brushing up against Scaramouche's cheek nearly had the robot giggling. "Mm, that tickles~!" But in a good way. He planted a gentle smooch between Lunette's beautiful blue eyes and embraced her tightly, the metal plating of his abdomen emitting a gentle warmth. "It's your birthday, silly~!" Scaramouche teased. "It's supposed to be a special day - one just for you~! I'd be upset if I wasn't here celebratin' it with ya." Like, really upset. Metal fingers tenderly stroked Lunette's fluffy side. "And ya better get used to 'em, 'cause we're celebratin' your birthday every year. It's gonna be tradition, babe~!" And he was not going to take 'no' for an answer.
