Kagari let out a breath. She turned, her mouth thin, her eyes narrowed just so at their edges. It wasn’t that different from her usual expression, but over time, he had learned to recognize those small shifts and what they meant. She was looking at him the way she often did when he was struggling with something in their training – not frustrated, but urgent, almost anxious. Focus, it meant. Concentrate. Think about this a little harder.

Her duty always comes first, but here, at the end of it all, there is time for Ayaka to allow herself a moment of weakness.
