Somewhere, in the days and weeks and months after Kyoto, Yukio starts hoping that Shura is paying more attention than she lets on. Shura is always more a lot of things than she lets on. She’s infuriating like that.

But, this is important.

Because he can feel it. The burning. It’s been growing inside him since Kyoto.

And, his resistance is dwindling.

Once it’s gone, he thinks Shura might be able to do what needs to be done. Nii-san won’t. But, Shura isn’t so idealistic.

If she’ll only notice in time… because he already lacks the will to tell her.
