The rabbit reached up to scratch his cheek with his hand. After a moment or two, he heaved a sigh and moved out of the way of the boy. It was best if he didn’t cause more of a commotion. When he caused a commotion, it usually meant trouble for him. He let the boy walk on by, not like he really needed to walk in the middle of the sidewalk, and from the looks of it, the boy wasn’t going to move to the side. All the attention they were drawing was starting to get to Momiji. The rabbit then heaved a sigh before stopping. He was just going to let the boy walk on, but curiosity got the best of him. “May I … ask you something?” he asked, gazing over at the boy curiously.
He then waited for a moment, seeing if the boy would answer him or leave him alone. As he waited, he pulled out a bar of chocolate he’d stashed in his bag much earlier in the day. He always had some kind of sweet or candy on him, he never went anywhere without such.
Seeing the blond stepping aside, Megumi casually started making his way once more, without sparing the other another glance, until after a couple of steps, he was called. The younger paused onto his track and turned just slightly to be able to look at Momiji sideways. First he checked to make sure that the other boy was referring to him, and seeing that he was the one he was looking, it was easy to define this part.
Megumi’s eyes scanned Momiji from top to bottom, into a long silent moment. It certainly looked as if he was observing the blond, the same way someone would be staring at an animal behind the bars of a cage, to see if it would make any interesting move. After a while it looked like the dark haired was inspecting the older, for some sort of recognition of his own part, and paused into space for a second while he was trying to remember something. In the end something seemed to click, and the dark eyes returned calmly to face the honey ones. As Momiji took out the candy, it was more like giving a signal for acceptance to Megumi, since he also always carried snacks with him, and the boy turned to face the blonde fully.
“You may” he finally replied in a steady, low voice, giving Momiji his full attention.
