    Summary

    mono no aware: in Japanese art, literary criticism, etc.: a capacity to be, or the experience of being, deeply and spontaneously moved by various poignant manifestations of nature, including human nature; especially a sense of pathos arising from intense awareness of the impermanence of earthly things.

     

    He follows Sugimoto by scent.

    Sugimoto doesn’t know it, would never admit it if he did, but he smells like a prey animal. They say he was savage on the battlefield; they say he is a wolf in man’s clothing, red in tooth and claw, but he stinks of fear, of softness, and Ogata can taste him from miles away, the way a shark scents blood.

    He smells delicious.

    Sugimoto’s greatest flaw is mercy. Someday, it will kill him, if Ogata doesn’t get there first.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He didn’t even know human beings were capable of this kind of love — the kind that, apparently, can literally rewrite fate or alter the will of gods — he thinks as she takes another small step toward him, let alone that he was capable of it. Let alone that he’d get it — and yet, here she is.

    Summary

    Touch, too, is a language. And Kyoya is far from fluent––but. Tamaki.

    He holds out his hand between them.

    Tamaki’s head turns. He looks at the hand, then up at Kyoya. His face is uncertain, confused, and so Kyoya pours everything into his answering gaze.

    Eyes wide, Tamaki takes his hand. When Kyoya lets him, tension rushes out of him, like a sigh he hadn’t known he’d been holding. He brings Kyoya’s hand up to his face, closing his eyes, and breathes out quietly down Kyoya’s wrist.

    Kyouya matches his fingers to the curve of Tamaki’s cheek and says, “You can have more than this.”
