    Summary

    Freed from his duty, Nino feels like the world is off his shoulders—it’s a strange feeling, but a bit welcome. He wonders what he could do, everything he can do: take his bike and go, buy a ticket and leave, build a boat and sail.

    What he does is throw on clean, albeit wrinkly, clothes. He frowns at himself in the mirror, the deep set of his eyes and the age that he sees within his own gaze making him feel vulnerable, until he comes to the conclusion, aloud to no one but the layers of dust and cobwebs, “Don’t really need ‘em anymore, do I?”

    He leaves his glasses on the table and goes to Jean.

    Summary

    "You're allowed to want things now, you know. You were always allowed to."

    The grin fades from Nino's face, and he turns to stare at the darkening cityscape spread out below them.

    "Isn't there anything you want?" Jean presses.

    Summary

    The bite of pancake is delightfully buttery, with a tang from the cheese curds. Yuuri isn't sure what his expression is like, but Victor's smile brightens, and his phone goes up.

    "Say syrniki!"

    That photo's going to end up on Instagram in less than a minute. Yuuri ducks, and when Victor whips his phone to follow, Yuuri grabs Victor's elbow and drags him over so they're both caught in the shot. Victor laughs, a long line of warmth mashed up against Yuuri's side. He tucks his arm around Yuuri's waist and raises his phone again.

    Victor uses variations of the same caption every time: Reexploring St. Petersburg with #katsukiyuuri #oneplateatatime

    "You're ridiculous," Yuuri whispers, after the camera goes off.

    Victor smiles. "Ridiculous, but yours."

     

    (Yuuri has done the transcontinental uprooting of his life twice before and it's never easy, but this time there are photos plastered all over Victor's social media, explorations into Russian cuisine, shenanigans with the Russian figure skating national team, calls and messages from friends and family, and Victor, always.

    Victor, on the other hand, mostly copes by watching Yuuri adapt to life in St. Petersburg).
