It put more color in her cheeks and an extra sparkle in her blue eyes. She had put 1-year-old Kenji down for a nap an hour ago, and even such a small task with her child had brought a huge smile to her face. She glanced over at Kenshin for a fleeting moment, sending over the smile he knew was reserved just for him. He smiled back, the ruroni smile he knew she adored.

Kenshin/Kaoru - Fanlore
Because of Kaoru, he could simply be Kenshin Himura, father, husband, and friend. Perhaps he might throw in 14th master of the Hiten Mitsurugi Style, but while Hiko lived he felt strange referring to himself as such.
