      “Be careful up there, and make sure you don't look down for any reason.” Against Agni's better judgment, he'd allowed you to be the one to climb to the roof. Since your first step on the ladder, he'd been begging you to be careful or to come down. “Please, why don't you let me do that, I would never be able to forgive myself is something were to happen to you.”

“I'll be just fine. You just worry about holding that ladder steady for me.” Not at all worried or concerned for your own safety, you took the last few steps up the ladder, finally reaching the roof without any problems. “Which way am I going now? Everything looks different from up here.”

“To your left, but please, do be careful. Are you sure you don't want me to come up there with you?” Hardly able to contain his worry, he was already about to start up the ladder.

“No, no. You stay down there. If you come up, who will hold the ladder steady when we come back down?” Slowly walking in the direction Agni pointed you, you started your search. “I don't see anything up here. Are you sure Master Ciel isn't just hearing things?”

With furrowed brows and a terribly nervous look on his face, Agni yelled to you from the ground. “I don't think so, others have heard the same sound. If you can't find the source, I could come help you look, I really don't mind.”

Ever so slightly annoyed by his constant offers to come help. You ignored him. You were determined to do this on your own, no matter how long it took. After a few more moments of wandering aimlessly on the roof, you found the source of the noise. “Agni, there's a birds nest up here. It's full of baby chicks.” You looked around for any sign of a mother bird. “They look hungry, I think they might have been abandoned. What do you want me to do?”

“Bring the nest down if you can. I'm sure Finnian would enjoy looking after them until they're old enough to fly off on their own.” Understandably, the worried look on Agni's face intensified as you picked up the nest. “Careful not to drop them.”

“Don't worry, I've got them.” With the nest now in hand, you slowly walked across the roof and back to the ladder. You weren't quite sure how you were going to get down with a nest full of squirming chicks in your hands, but you were sure going to try. “Make sure that thing's steady, I'm coming down.” Holding the nest close to your chest, you placed your foot firmly on the ladder and carefully took the first few steps down. “So far so good.” With the only one hand to use to steady yourself, you were beginning to have a hard time keeping balance. Due to the fact that you were so focused on not dropping the nest, you lost your footing on the third step from the top and went plummeting to the ground below. With your eyes shut tight, as if that would somehow protect you, you clung to the nest, hoping the chicks inside wouldn't be harmed.

Moving with lightning speed, Agni shoved the ladder aside and readied to catch you. “I've got you, just hold tight to those baby birds!” What seemed like an eternity later, you felt yourself fall into his arms. “Are you okay? I knew I shouldn't have let you up there.” Blaming himself for your fall, he held you tightly, half smothering you with his embrace. “I'm so sorry, this is unforgivable.” Tears welled up in his eyes as he held you even closer to his body.

“H-hey, I'm okay. Don't cry about it.” Not wanting to see him cry, you quickly hugged him with one arm, in an attempt to keep him from feeling bad. “Honestly, nothing bad happened, so don't worry about it.” Squeezing him as tightly as you could, you did your very best to reassure him. “Besides, we need to let Finny know he's a mother.”

“Tell him what?” The chirping of the chicks helped Agni remember what you were talking about. “Oh, right. We should go do that. Are you able to walk, or would you rather I carried you?”

For some reason, his simple question made you blush terribly. “I can walk, no need to carry me.”

“Are you sure? Your voice is weak, and you're a bit red.” Agni frowned. “Just to be safe, I think I should carry you.” Though you tried to dispute him, he quickly hushed you and continued carrying you into the Phantomhive home. “You seem a bit better.”  Though still unsure, Agni slowly and very carefully placed your feet on the floor. “If you get dizzy, let me know and I'll continue to carry you. Now, let's find Finnian.”

“Okay.” You nodded. “That sounds like a good idea.” Walking along side Agni, you couldn't help but feel a little nervous. You really tried hard to calm your nerves, but the more you tried, the worse they seemed to get. “A-any idea where Finny might be? I haven't even seen him this morning, so I wouldn't even begin to know where to look.”

“I would guess he'd be in the garden as he usually is, but-.” Agni stopped and looked at you. “You look flushed again. That fall must have harmed you worse than I thought. ” Once again, he immediately became worried over your health. “You should wait here. I can find him on my own. I don't want you getting hurt under my watch. I wouldn't be able to forgive myself.”

As embarrassing as it was, you knew you couldn't have Agni going around thinking you were ill or hurt in some way. If you did, he'd be upset with himself forever. “I'm fine, it's not the fall that's making me red. It's called blushing." Even more embarrassed now than you were before, you let out a sigh. "I'm blushing okay?”

“Blushing?” Suddenly a bit flustered himself, Agni's face turned slightly pink. “Why would you be doing that? Have I done something to embarrass you? If I have, I swear to you, I did not mean to.”

“N-no, I just...” You searched for a suitable reason for you to be so red faced, but you honestly couldn't understand it yourself. “I don't even know why I'm blushing right now.” Unable to hide your face due to your hands being full, your blush grew, now covering your neck, shoulders, and even your ears. “I just am.”

Agni chuckled quietly. “I understand your feelings. The same thing happens to me when I'm around, certain people for any length of time.” He smiled, but was obviously becoming nervous as he spoke. “I suppose we just can't help certain things.”

The idea of Agni getting flustered around someone else really annoyed you for odd some reason. “Do you get like that around a lot of people, or...” Knowing it was none of your business, you stopped yourself from finishing your question. “Never mind. I really shouldn't be asking you something personal like that.”

“No, only one person causes this.” He moved so that he was now in front of you. “If I am to be completely honest, that person is you.” Agni smiled, obviously happy to have told you. “I hope I haven't made things more uncomfortable for you.” With his little confession out of the way, Agni seemed almost like he was ready to kiss you. Before he had a chance to do so, if that was indeed what he had planned to do, the chicks began chirping loudly. “Ah, I seem to have forgotten our purpose here. Forgive me.”

“It's okay, I forgot what we were doing too.” Blushing from head to toe, you giggled. “We should probably get these little babies to Finny now, or they'll start to think I'm their mother.”

“You'd make a wonderful mother to them. But I suppose you're right.” Agni took your hand once more and restarted the search for Finnian. After taking only a few steps, he stopped and turned to you. “Unless, of course, you wanted to raise them together. I've always wanted the chance to raise a baby animal.”

Whee! Agni is so cute, and out of all the "butlers" in that show, I like him the best. He's steadfast and steady, willing to put the needs and emotions of others before his own, not to mention a kickass cook! Oh Agni, if Prince Soma would let you go, and I was a Victorian/Edwardian lady inhabiting that era, I'd ask you to marry me.
