The scarlet eyes widened. There was a silent between them for a while. Shion could hear and feel his own fast heartbeat spreading warmth in his body. Soon, his eyes softened.
It made him remember all that they had been through, all that they had experienced. From the very first start to the end. From the moment when Shion opened the window in the storm, to the moment when they shared a goodbye - No. A kiss of an oath.
He remembered every word that Nezumi ever said. Almost every word. But he knew that some of them were a lie, and the others were honest. Nezumi protected his heart, even from Shion, and shoved him whenever he tried to get closer, when he revealed and figured more information. Nezumi wasn’t numbers for Shion, not him, not everyone. Nezumi thought Shion was as No.6. But Shion proved he wasn’t a part of this corruption, this horror… No.6 ruined him. Nezumi built him.
Each moment was unique. Every moment Shion wished to maintain. He found himself drawn to him uncontrollably. He was scared to lose Nezumi more than anyone else. Nezumi saved his fake life. The bright-red scar, the white hair and the scarlet eyes were symbols of his survive thanks to Nezumi. More than once, Nezumi warned that he would leave Shion behind. But he never did. He encouraged him to live, to push further, to value the life.
Nezumi taught him everything Shion knew now about human beings, about the world. Good and bad as one.
However… Nezumi taught him what love was.
Shion fell for him. It was hard to let him go. It was as if someone ripped an half of his heart. He had never felt whole.
My world means nothing without you, Nezumi. Nothing.
Nezumi’s figure turned to be blurred by colorless tears. A light flush colored the cheeks. A loving soft smile appeared on his lips.
"I have loved you this whole time too, Nezumi. I still do." Shion looked directly into the gray eyes as he spoke, stepped closer and embraced him.
I will always love you.
"How do you really feel about me?"
"Can’t you pretend to love me this once?"
"Would you care if I was gone?"
"Don’t you know the hell I go through to keep you safe?"
"I can’t take this any longer. Help me."
"Deep down, you’re scared. Aren’t you?"
"You’ll stay alone if you push others away."
"How many lives have you taken with your own hands?"
"Just for today. Please."
"You’re the only one who’s never called me that…"
"We can make it work! Let’s run away together, you and me!"
"I… have loved you this whole time."
"Treat me as you see fit. I’ll still protect you. It’s my role after all."
"Maybe it’s too much for me to expect kindness."
"You give me meaning, even if you take it away."
"Please… hold me. Don’t say anything, just… hold me."
