    Summary

    Victor smiles and opens his mouth to give a kind comment, but “A commemorative photo?” is what falls out, the English phrase well-worn on his tongue.

    Katsuki’s face goes blank, and Victor should stop, but he started down this path and he follows the ritual through automatically – he turns, one hand coming up in invitation. “Sure!”

    This time, Katsuki’s reaction is strong enough to break through his impassive mask – his eyes widen and hurt washes over his face. Then a spark of resolve flashes through his eyes, Katsuki’s chin coming up sharply, determinedly, and Victor feels the bottom fall out of his stomach because he recognizes that expression.

    It’s the same look Victor has seen in his soulmate’s eyes, during a soulmate flash; a look that strikes Victor deep in the heart with its intensity.

    Summary

    Victor blurted out the question not long after that, no longer able to keep it inside himself. “What do you want me to be to you?”

    But Yuuri’s answer was not at all what he expected.

    It was, however, the kind of answer he liked. It sparkled in his mind and puzzled him enough to keep him awake that night, pondering the irony while he was sitting alone in his bedroom with the smell of ocean salt and driftwood still clinging to his hair.

    “I want you to be yourself,” Yuuri had said in reply.

    And wasn’t that just the funniest thing?

    This whole time, Victor had been trying to figure out which mask to wear to make Yuuri happy, when all he wanted was for Victor to take it off and show him the real person beneath.
