    Summary

    He noticed as the sunset made his skin err towards tawny, the way it often turned in the summer, a collection of long weekends at the sea layering on him before the new semester would peel them away in half tones. Within the lengthened shadows was the shift of exaggerated legs, his arm made long and vampiric as he stretched it out from his body and took it back in. His hand pressed again to the notebook where, Yuki knew though he couldn’t see, small cartoons and doodles marked the margins. Correct answers circled multiple times over, mistakes crumpled and half-faded from a hasty erase.

    He thought of the dark smudge of graphite that had probably stained the side of his hand. How it was probably marking up his notebook. How he probably wouldn’t even notice until it was pointed out to him.

    How he’d laugh about it.

    Kakeru comes over to study. Yuki studies him in turn.

    Summary

    Yeah, Carmen appreciates a unique flavor. But hey, she’s also got eyes. Eyes for clothes, for mise-en-scène, for unfairly cute girls.

    Summary

    “How precious are your futures?” asks the Sphinx. “How dear to you is the path you wish to take?” She bares her teeth in a cruel smile, and they all take an involuntary step back.

    “Wait,” says Laios suddenly. “Look at her teeth!”

    Yes, Laios,” says Izutsumi. “We’ve all noticed the fangs. This really isn’t the time—”

    “No,” says Laios, “those back teeth. She has molars- grinders. That means she’s an omnivore. But she can’t leave this circle, and you saw how nothing ventures within miles of this spot. I bet she hasn’t had anything other than…” he swallows, waving a hand vaguely at the pile of ex-adventurers, “...meat… for years .”

    “So…what?” asks Izutsumi.

    “Remember how good those marshmallows were?” asks Laios. “And that was only after a couple days without much of a varied diet.”

    “You want to bet all of our lives,” Chilchuck says slowly, “on making a Sphinx a nice dessert?”

    Laios smiles.

    Summary

    Yuki tugged on Kakeru’s hand firmly, either to scold him for laughing or to accentuate his point. “You’re just avoiding me!”

    “I am not.” Kakeru pressed the back of his free hand against his mouth, sputtering the last of his laughter into it, before saying, “It just doesn’t matter. Swear.”

    “What? Why not?”

    “Well,” Kakeru said, and he was acutely aware of how Yuki continued to hold his hand, fingers curled loose into his palm. Gently, he pulled back. “It’s not like they like me back.”

    Yuki placed his hand back beside him on the floor. He looked down at it, splaying his fingers wide and shut again, before asking, “...You still like them, then?”

    Kakeru wiped his hand on his jeans as it grew clammy.

    “Guess so.”

    Yuki murmured something under his breath. It sounded close to a curse, but Kakeru wasn’t sure.

    Kakeru was readying himself for him to say something that would give him chest pains, something like 'that’s really sad' or 'that sounds lonely,' but instead, when Yuki next spoke, his words were so quiet Kakeru wasn’t sure he had heard him right.

    “I understand.”

    Yuki gets trapped in a closet (again). Kakeru is trapped with him.

    Summary

    “What?” Yuki asks.
    “What do you mean what, Prince?” Uotani scoffs.
    “Why are you all looking at me like that?”
    “Because you two are, like, all over each other,” she says, incredulous.
    “More like he’s all over me.”
