This fanfic takes place during the night that Hiko meets Shinta and the night after that. For clarity, the name "Shinta" has been used even though Hiko has changed Shinta's name to "Kenshin" about halfway through this story.
This musical theatre song is simply beautiful, and I highly recommend listening to it if you haven't heard it. If you own a CD, video, audio tape, LP, or whatever, if you'd take a moment to listen to the piece before reading I'd appreciate it. I think the reading of the fic would be much richer that way. ^_^
