    Summary

    Sometimes love is feeling helpless. Sometimes it's making sacrifices.

    And, sometimes, it's laughing your asses off together while drinking terrible boxed wine and talking about what was—and what's to come.

    (Alternatively: Nearly a decade later, Kaoru’s finally forced to face his feelings.)

    Summary

    "Are you truly that desperate for someone to call you Daddy?"

    It's meant to be mocking, if the cut-throat smile is anything to go by, but Kojiro feels every cell in his body immobilise, stopping him unnaturally still. Something shifts, tangible and suffocating; a moment with its own erratic heartbeat. And unexpectedly, Kojiro finds himself a competitor in a high-stakes staring contest.

    Kaoru blinks first.

    Cherry teases Joe after Miya calls him "Daddy". It has unintended consequences.

    Cherry gets a skateboard to the face and Joe doesn’t really react.

    Miya worries exactly because of that.

    Summary

    “You look nice,” he began, and cringed because it was such a date type of comment, and this wasn’t a date but a friends meeting for dinner occasion, even if Kaoru did look kind of date-like with his cloud of hair and pristine yukata.
    “You look … uh … floury,” Kaoru teased, brushing his hand on Kojiro’s sleeve.
    “Downside of making pasta.”
    “The upside is eating it, though,” Kaoru replied with one last pat, and settled back into silence. He unfurled his fan, something Kojiro noticed he did when he was entirely at ease, so he let the silence settle gently on them.

    After his recent stay in hospital, Kojiro invites Kaoru over for a meal.

    Summary

    "Have I ever hurt you?"

    Kojiro takes a deep breath. "Back when we were still in school. After... Adam left. It hurt when you started shutting everyone out. You pushed all the people who cared about you away; it was difficult to keep my foot in the door because you tried so hard to close it. And I was afraid of what would happen if you actually managed to do it." He lowers the hairbrush.
    --

    Kojiro has always been so patient. But he's an honest gut, too. After Adam's attack, he's going to convince Kaoru to let go of the past.
