Drabble: Embrace Nothing

Requester: googlymooglies
Fandom/Characters: Gojyo/[your choice of Sanzo, Hakkai, or Goku]
Prompt: "Don't fuckin' care"
As per my winter drabbles post.

"Embrace nothing:
If you meet the Buddha, kill the Buddha.
If you meet your father, kill your father.
Only live your life as it is,
Not bound to anything."

Gojyo blinked at Sanzo. Hakkai put their dinner together over the camp fire. Goku squatted, sniffing hungrily.

"Doesn't that just mean you don't fuckin' care?" Gojyo asked, curious.

Sanzo frowned.

Light reflected off Hakkai's glasses. "Yes, it does, in the same way Sanzo says that we could die for all he'd care."

"Oh! But Sanzo doesn't... Ow!" Goku winced. Sanzo threatened him again with the fan.

And, lo, Gojyo was enlightened.
