    Summary

    His grace is burning out, and the wasteland it leaves inside him becomes an echo chamber for all the memories, all the fear and doubt and self-loathing he's collected over the years. Things said and done hound him on endless repeat until he's convinced they’ll break through his skin and fill the silence of the bunker.

    His head is killing him, and he sits hunched over an open book, not really reading, just digging his fingers into his skull and praying nothing slips through the cracks.

    Summary

    we all become our worst fears.

    In April the school year ends and Kyouya prepares for three months or so of attachments, shadowing doctors and observing them in operating theatres. When he was younger the smell of blood and guts nauseated him. In between jobs he is called to attend an Ootori family gathering, extended kin and all, and he doesn’t comprehend why he “needs to be there”, in his father’s words, but appearances are everything, and tongues will wag if he is absent. He returns to Japan.
