    Summary

    Two years he's been alone. Just him, his mom, and his dog.

    He didn't... He could have asked for a hug, he supposes, but there were always more pressing concerns. Food to find, water to haul, fires to watch. He went whole days without even seeing Krolia, and most of their conversations revolved around the practical.

    (One part exploration of Keith & Krolia's missing years, one part healing after the fact featuring simultaneously touch-averse and touch-starved Keith.)

    Summary

    ‘Kogane.’ It was James’ room still, after all these years. He still wore the same expression on his face as he looked down at Keith standing in his doorway.

    ‘Can I come in?’ He asked, the same as he used to and James made no indication of his answer other than stepping to the side. Stepping to the side always meant a yes, always had, always would.

    James closed the door and slid the lock across and Keith wet his lip, opening his mouth to speak but James pressed a finger to it.

    ‘You don’t need to tell me why you’re here.’ He said, voice low and quiet. ‘I already know why you’re here.’ He said, lightly dragging his finger down Keith’s neck, stopping at the zip on his jacket and he pulled it down, maintaining eye contact with Keith as he did so.

    Summary

    James burns silently for years, until Keith comes back from the void of space.

    "You want something out of this and I want to know what it is.” Keith’s fingers twitch against James’s, but James just tightens his grip, and rubs the pad of his thumb across Keith’s palm.

    “I don’t.” He pauses, takes a deep breath in, “I don’t want anything.” James thinks if he says it enough that the affirmation will ring true. He wants something from Keith, but he can’t put his finger on what that something is. It’s a desire, somewhere on the tip of his tongue that if he names, if he dares to will it into existence, could consume him from the inside out.

    Keith finally opens his eyes, gaze fixed on their hands. His voice is barely above a whisper when he speaks, but it still echoes in the hallway, “then what do you need?”

    Summary

    From this angle, Keith’s eyes are pitch dark, glinting just right when the faint moonlight hits his cheek. His skin looks soft, a cry of warmth on this freezing night. James wants to wrap himself up in him, fit his fingers into all of Keith’s empty spaces so that he’ll never be forgotten.

    He doesn’t. He can’t.
