[fic] And Every Low  
This is all your fault, nthcoincident , for making me think about Hokage!Kushina, especially when I can't write her or Minato to save my life. Stupid vicious plotbunnies...

Title: And Every Low
Characters: Kushina, Minato
Pairings: Minato/Kushina
Genre: General
Rating: K
Summary: AU. Minato cheers Kushina up after a difficult meeting. Spoilers for 498.

The door closes behind the ambassador and the Fourth Hokage sighs heavily, leaning back in her chair.

"He was lying through his teeth, dattebane!" she hisses angrily.

She can tell that Minato disagrees even before he speaks.

"I don't think he was. He knows that they can't risk a war with us over this," he reminds her.

"Not when they've barely recovered from the last one."

She sighs again, tipping her chair back in a way that suggests long hours of practice. (Also only a passing familiarity with the front of a classroom. Her Academy grades were excellent though.) She stares at the pile of papers on her desk vacantly.

"I hate this," she admits softly. "The lies, the paperwork, being constantly judged... Everything."

He rubs her shoulders smoothingly and she leans into his touch.

"But you wouldn't give it up, right? Not even to me?" he says.

That gets a smile out of her.

"Of course not! Besides, I like things just the way they are."

Yeah. It's a pity that she never got the chance.
