    Summary

    Shiro's never been great at keeping his hands to himself.

    That's how they've been for the longest time, skirting around each other but never colliding. Even after he returns it continues still, the fleeting touches and the inevitability of falling together.

    Summary

    “Whose side are you on?” Shiro asks at night, staring at a spot on the ceiling.

    Keith shifts in bed and weighs his options, but falls asleep before he can finish deliberating. There are, obviously, better things to believe in.

    Summary

    Everyone’s got one of those little tragedies.

    Summary

    They are already standing in line at the register when Keith sees her, just a little way ahead of them. He isn't even sure why he recognizes her because the years have not exactly been kind to her, but when she angles her head to smile at the cashier, Keith is struck with the empty realization that this random woman on this random day is one of his former foster mothers.
