A/N: The prompt was "Kurama's pretty sure Hiei doesn't know how to be gentle, which is why he goes to Kurama instead of Yukina."
Kurama never turned him away when he came into his room in the middle of the night. He never gave him pitying looks or exasperation either. At most he would sometimes give him a sad look, but he wouldn't ask why he'd come, why he chose to bring his company to him in the night instead her. They both knew the answers. The fox was uncanny in his understanding about things of this nature, and it suited their arrangement to not talk about it.
The other demon likely understood why he could never go to her. All he could ever offer her was bloodied hands and ripping strength. Ice-hearted demon or not, that was never going to be good enough for her, especially when he could never quite tell when a hug might be too tight, let alone anything else one might expect from a brother or lover.
So he went to Kurama. Kurama never protested the too tight hugs, the bone bruising strength of his touches, the too fast progressions. All he did was smile and make sure to lead him far enough away from his home that there was no risk of them waking his human mother in the midst of passion.
She was, it seemed, in a way to Kurama as Yukina was to him. Someone he didn't wish to hurt, his precious one, though the ways they would express such emotions given choice were quite different. Whereas he feared hurting his sister physically, the fox only wanted to not disappoint his human or hurt her feelings. He did not want her afraid for him, and more especially not of him.
That was a large part of why it was easy to believe that the fox understood the cause of why he did these things this way. His hands touching left bruises that spirit energy would be needed to heal before movement was possible, his mouth drew unintentional blood with bites that he thought to be light and playful, not ravaging. Those and more were things that he would never be able to do with Yukina, invitation or no.
Even an ice maiden could be hurt, and he never ever wanted to do that to his dear sister.
They would both have to wait until he'd learned better.
