Kaneki remembers Hide dying. He remembers the blood and warmth leaving the blonde’s body as Kaneki stood frozen in shock at the sight. Kaneki remembers holding Hide as the blonde took his last breath. He remembers pain so strong that all of his other senses became numb. He remembers walking towards the strongest investigator with Hide’s cooling body. He remembers facing his death and how the stinging pain he felt in his neck as it was cut pales in comparison to the pain of losing Hide.
He remembers the darkness and a familiar voice calling his name.
So why is it that he woke up? He wants death. A life without Hide is not worth living and he wants to go home with the blonde. So why is he now staring at a brightly lit white ceiling surrounded by the whirs and beeps of machines? Can he not just die? Did they think that sparing a ghoul that murdered and killed their friends is justice? Can’t they see that life without Hide is just not life?
The sound of a door opening followed by footsteps were heard as a chair –Kaneki assumes it’s a chair- was dragged on what sounded like tiled floor.

Kaneki knows there isn't going to be a happy ending. After all he's been through, Kaneki doesn't believe in happy endings, but he's content at the moment. He may not be the same, but there's a part of him that is happy about that. He's not weak anymore and he has a group of people who are loyal to him. He has, more-or-less, a make-shift family of ghouls brought together by chaos and pain.
But where did Hide fit into that?
Kaneki hadn't seen Hide in months, staying away to protect him. But what really was he protecting Hide from? Whatever it was, Kaneki knew he failed when he saw his best friend's Missing Persons poster plastered somewhere in the 20th ward. It's been 5 months since then, and Hide was nowhere to be found. Kaneki didn't want to give up, but the odds of Hide being missing for this long, in a ward full of dangerous ghouls, didn't give much hope. He started to think Hide would never turn up.
Until he did.
And with him, came a surprise that Kaneki wasn't the slightest bit ready for. "
“You make him sound like the hero of a shonen manga or something” he couldn’t help but comment.
“Who knows” Koma replied just as Irimi stood to deliver the order. “Maybe he is” he winked. “And you would be the sidekick right?”
Kaneki sweatdropped, but chuckled all the same. A story with Hide as the main charcter, huh… he thought, wringing his cloth in the sink before hanging it on the rail and picking up his notepad.
Well, if it’s him… then it would surely be one filled with hope.
(Or: that fic where Hide wakes up in the past just in time to prevent the Tragedy that was Kaneki Ken's life... by taking it on himself.
Of course, it doesn't have to be a Tragedy)

Instead of best friend, Kaneki accidentally calls Hide his boyfriend when they're attacked. Now, Nishiki keeps using the B word whenever Hide is in earshot.
Kaneki is embarrassed. About everything.
