It was the silence that woke Tamaki, more than anything. And she regretted it the instant she realized that the middle of her futon was the only place that was warm. She hadn't opened her eyes yet, but she remained still and listened. It was a rare time that she would wake before her alarm - but it was Sunday, and there was no school today. Even so, Mitsuru was usually awake to prepare breakfast. 

Now began the age-old debate of 'to get up or not'? It was so warm in here, and if there was no miso soup or tea yet brewed, it would take longer than normal to warm up once out of bed...

"Ni--!" O-chan didn't give Tamaki the opportunity to make her own decision as the fox's cold, wet nose pressed against her neck in an affectionate gesture.

"WwwaAAAAAH!" Shooting up from her reclined position, Tamaki's blankets pooled into her lap, subjecting to the cold air that fell heavy in her room. She shivered and retrieved the fallen blankets, tugging them around her shoulders. "It's so early, O-chan."
 She rubbed the sleep from her eyes, rising to her feet with a cloak of blankets trailing around her. 

She headed towards the window, drawn in by the beam of light that warmly pierced through the unlit chill of her bedroom. "Though I guess if it's light out, others should be waking up soon, huh?"
 She peered out the window for signs of movement, but saw something else entirely. It elicited a startled gasp. She brought a hand up to cover her mouth, her blankets falling off her shoulders and onto the floor.

Snow was one of those few things that had the magical ability to turn adults into children. Not that he was technically an adult, but even so, the fluffy white stuff that coated the ground and piled in massive drifts was too much of a lure to resist rushing out in. A veritable heaven of white!

... for anyone over about 160cm. As it were, Mahiro was lucky he'd worn boots when he'd taken it upon himself to go drag others out -starting with Tamaki.

Too deep, too wet, too heavy, too cold, not enough winter clothes to bundle up in. Dammit, birds flew south for a reason!

When he finally reached his destination, going through the door would've been too practical, which meant windows were the highly superior option. This meant digging through the snow that had piled up so that he could actually get to the window! He'd been entirely too enthusiastic about it, though, despite managing to keep quiet so as to make it a surprise, and stepped just a little too hard on a soft patch... then sank like a rock and brought more down on top of himself. He'd managed a small squeak before the rest was muffled by snow.

Smooshed between the window, snow, and his own scarf which kept him from being able to make much noise, there really wasn't much else to do but hope that either she would wake up or that he'd stop being cold long enough to break out of the deceptively heavy fluff that didn't entirely cover the window's surface. Luckily, he didn't have too long to wait... which meant QUICK! GIVE HER THE MOST PITIFUL LOOK POSSIBLE!

Please oh please oh please open the window FUCK THIS I'M COLD!

The moment the window was open, he pulled himself through, collapsing dramatically onto the floor while he tried to catch his breath. There was really only so long one could take being out in that frozen hell, after all. A few long moments to catch his breath, though, and he was right back on his feet, waving off her exclamation.

"NOPE! Too easy."

Had he used the front door, he'd have not only had to wake someone, but then he'd have had to wait while Michiru fetched Tamaki, and then he'd have to wait until Tamaki came out, then he'd have to wait until Tamaki got dressed a--

Oh. OH. Oh. .........Oops.

Coming in through her window had been an AMAZING plan, up until now because it hadn't really occurred to him that she might not be dressed, and pajamas didn't count as clothes. Yup, that was him, turning his back and pointing. "Just hurry up and get dressed, already!"
