    Summary

    “What is your deal?” Majima barks.

    Kiryu looks at him in the eye for the first time. Kiryu has deep under-eye bags, his skin is waxy, and the dullness of his coloring indicates his sleeplessness. He’s aged significantly from stress. He seems older, paler, but somehow stronger. The softness of his cheeks and his frame has dissipated entirely, replaced with a more rigid, more muscular outline. Whatever remaining baby fat clinging to him from his twenties and thirties is gone. His cheekbones jut out of his stoic face. His body seems as impenetrable as the steel of his glare.

    “I don’t know who you are,” Kiryu says. The words themselves wound Kiryu to say as much as it evidently does Majima to hear, “Leave me alone.”

    Summary

    In these rare moments of quiet, when Kiryu was left on his own with nothing ahead and nothing behind, his mind always strayed to the same thought like an animal licking a wound.

    What was he doing?

    (Kiryu's accumulated a bit too much heat from the cops and is forced to skip town for a while. Luckily his caring superior Majima is around to help him pass the time.)

    Summary

    Kiryu's tired of having people get hurt on his behalf. Even the cries of the Devil himself would give him pause, so when a foreign mafia squad kidnaps Majima to lure him in, what choice does he have? This is his responsibility, no matter who disagrees with him.

    Unfortunately, this favor becomes a little more than he'd bargained on.

    Summary

    Kiryu’s existence was one big intrusive thought, as real as if he were breathing down his neck. He forgot how to think about anything else, if he ever did, and Okinawa didn’t provide many distractions. When Kiryu wasn’t around, he became a concept. Dealing with him in the flesh presented some challenges.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    delicious and heart-tugging. i'm so painfully ambivalent! The nagging sore of two people having different responses to the same environment is so real and it was depicted poignantly here. Hope you're well!
