    Summary

    "Do you know about the other stars of Orion?”

    Lio does. He remembers the rare nights of peace, when Freeze Force weren’t hunting him and the other Burnish. He remembers the times spent in the desert, when it’s biting cold at night and they’re huddled in blankets so as to not draw attention with their bright Burnish fire, and it’s dark enough that they can't see much around them. He remembers looking upwards at the clear skies instead, and seeing the sea of stars above them, the milky way, the moon. He remembers the red of Mars, and fellow Burnish joining him and pointing out Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. He has learnt Canis Major, Ursa Major, Pegasus, Aquila, Cygnus, the twelve zodiacs. He has learnt the stars of Orion.

    “Tell me about them,” he says. Galo points to the sky again.


    Lio, Galo, and stargazing.

    Summary

    “Do you remember when we met, and you burned down that pharmaceutical building?” Galo asked.
     

    “I thought we agreed not to talk about that,” Lio replied, tersely.

     

    Lio likes Galo. A lot.

    Summary

    “I’m gonna wreck you,” Lio mumbles.

    “No you’re not,” Galo says fondly. “You’re practically asleep. You can barely keep your eyes open right now.”

    “Shit,” Lio says. “I’m horny, though.”

    ~ in which ~

    Lio is exhausted from a long day, but still wants to mess around. Galo has a solution to this problem.

    Summary

    “I’m fine.”

    “Galo—”

    Galo has stepped up a pace, and a gap is growing between them both, and for a moment, for the briefest of moments, Lio thinks about a falling star that he can’t catch. And maybe the world deserved to burn, maybe it didn’t deserve to be saved, maybe then he wouldn’t have to hear the screams of his fellow Burnish almost every night, maybe Gueira and Meis wouldn’t jolt so violently awake from nightmares, maybe whatever was hurting Galo would burn too, maybe—


    One month on, both Galo and Lio have a lot on their minds and it weighs them down. On a late, late night, they finally talk it out.

    (In which Lio would set the world on fire for Galo, but Galo would always be too kind to let the world burn.)
