” Well, according to my counts you’ve been a workaholic for years and I didn’t have much to do besides hunting before, so I believe we have some vacations to take. “
” That’s… just like you. “
That was the expression he didn’t want to be responsible for, but it was all his fault this time. He smiled at the silvette once he held the towel for him, but let his hand rest on top of the younger hunter’s one.
He wasn’t as fine as he had thought, the blood he had lost to the level E some days before was probably more than he imagined, and just letting Zero drink a little bit now had made him weak.
It was taking too long for the apologize to come.
” It wasn’t your fault. I was supposed to warn you. “
The brunette slowly moved to the side, leaving space enough for the silvette to sit on the bed and gestured with his head, what he regretted right after since he was almost getting better from those dizzy feeling, for his husband to take his place.
” I thought I was better than that already…. Sorry. “
It wasn’t like that.
Knowing Kaito had lost blood only a few days back should have stopped him from doing this in the first place.
When Kaito moved, Zero took his place on the bed, their bodies still tied by the hand holding the towel. The other hand tried to reach for him, but there was blood in it.
Was it taking over him?
Then the hunter remembered the reason for the blood —- something involving a broken mirror. For a human, it would be hurting, but it wasn’t.
Not after he had taken Kaito’s blood, Zero noticed. In fact, he doubted there was more than scars in there at this point.
The hand dropped as fast as Zero’s mental strength, and he let his head gently fall on Kaito’s shoulder instead.
” I could only stop because of what I saw inside you —-
When I understood what has been bothering you …
I could have killed you. “
▬『 The same? wasn’t that … weird? Of course dreaming with each other was … well, almost normal by now, but having a weird dream where Kaito was back to a kid and did the same things at the same time…
” …… Do you think you can read my mind now? “
Some vampires had that power, he’d hear, and maybe Zero had developed it …. At that time of the morning, that sounded pretty good. 』▬
Read Kaito’s mind …
It had been done before. Every time his fangs pierced his partner’s neck, fragments of memories and fears and feelings would appear before him, no matter if he wanted to see them or not. He hadn’t bitten Kaito the night before, though.
His body would know if he did.
” —- I don’t get it. “
For a vampire, mind reading could be possible, yet he wasn’t —-
An ex-human wouldn’t have that power.
Kaito smiled before moving his head to the side, not being silenced by the silvette anymore, and placed a kiss on the other’s cheek.
” So I should do everything but the vampires part? “
” I can’t know…
It might not be enough for me to miss you. ”
But he was doing the closest to a smile he knew, which, in this case, meant he was lying and that it was obvious. However, because knowing Zero might not be enough, the younger hunter turned his head to place a kiss on his boyfriend’s chin, and stayed like that.
Zero has been working too much, at least that’s a way to make him rest.
And so Kaichan keeps on
playing withwashing Zero’s hair.
That’s not fair, is it?
This boy has intentions to make up for the lost time,
not so later.
” The kids… asked to go to the beach, and since we haven’t taken them anywhere for some time now….. “
” Have you talked with the President? “
“Fine—- but you have to promise not to
make fun of my hair.”
“ I didn’t say a thing about your hair. “
"Yes, I recall doing no such thing…"
“ It’s the third time in less than one hour. “
