    Summary

    The next day, he asks Regis what, exactly, Adagium is.
    Regis sighs heavily, as if he's been expecting Noctis to ask this question since the day he was born. "Adagium is a damned fairy, Noctis. He's ancient and very, very evil. No fairy can ever go near him, lest he infect them with the same madness."

    Summary

    Halfway up the staircase the fog descends, thick and unmistakable. Wolf pauses for a moment, waiting for the inevitable terror as the haze spills down the boards of the stairs like liquid. He’s felt this before— the way fear crawls through his veins and eats him alive. Felt the horror filling him when he struck out at a monster that used to be a man again and again only to find his weapons useless, pawing through his satchel for anything that might keep him alive.

    The fog of the Headless clings like something living as he finishes ascending the stairs, the open space at the top of the castle bathed in mist, except something is wrong. He moves through it easily instead of being bogged down like he’s walking through deep water. There is none of the dread Wolf knows so well now, none of the cold or the cloying scent of rot he associates with the Headless.

    The fog is warm, curling around Wolf’s body as though seeking affection, the faint scent of lotus blossoms in his nose. Being back here has Wolf’s chest tight, his throat sore. The way he feels when he’s lost a battle and has to retread the same ground.

    Wolf didn’t lose a fight, but there was still loss, and it unfurls in him like smoke.

    Summary

    Genichiro could have stayed there forever, eyes closed as blood poured from his neck, drawing in Wolf’s scent like a drug.  He’d gotten hints of it before— with Wolf’s sword buried in his guts. Wolf’s knees bent, bracing himself against Genichiro’s weight as he drove his blade in deep, Genichiro muttering the only prayer he knows.

    Ashina, Ashina.

    Wolf is the most vicious creature Genichiro has ever met, but he smells like lotus and sakura and something in Genichiro unspools every time he pulls him into his lungs. There is no such thing as a destined mate, in spite of what all the folklore says, but compatibility is a powerful thing.

    Wolf is a powerful thing.  Genichiro cannot help but want him.
