    Summary

    It’s the definition of a parasite: an organism that takes from the host and gives nothing in return. And that’s what Adam is now, by nature, thanks to a vampire bite and an untimely death.

    (or: Adam is a vampire and Gansey, like, REALLY wants him to drink his blood.)

    Summary

    Seonghwa averts his gaze when the bassist joins the rest of them on the tiny stage, catching just a brief glimpse of newly highlighted hair and dazzling smile. Really, it isn’t a big enough stage for all of them, especially with how they use any space within an inch of its life. He looks up to ponder over it, rolling his eyes when he locks eyes with Wooyoung, who’s chewing obnoxiously as he plucks idly at his bass.

    Terrible. Whatever this is between them, Seonghwa hates it down to his bones, especially when Wooyoung winks and he has to distract himself with his drink to stop his cheeks from flushing.

    Summary

    He deserves to know the truth of me.

    It was something bitten back as it made a home of the tip of his tongue, swallowed down in a way that made him feel erratic every time he and Kakeru had a quiet moment alone — in between classes, after meetings, at the end of the day when they would walk home together as far as they could until their paths diverged.

    There were some rare moments where he mouthed the words as if to speak them out loud, nights where he would lay awake on Kakeru’s floor, peering up at him through the dark as he slept dead in his bed, but there was never any relief from it. All it did was make him hide his face into his borrowed pillow, cheeks burning, heart hurting. Even more so as Kakeru’s scent became flush with his skin, leaving little else to perceive as he lay there in the pitch black.

    The thought I’m afraid to tell him sat bright behind his eyes, and he couldn’t stand it.

    -

    Yuki meets with Kakeru to tell him about the curse. Kakeru has something to tell him, too.

    Summary

    Kyo's laughter ceases, and Tohru wishes she could take it back.

    She'd take back her words. She'd take back all the cuts and wounds she's reopened tonight. Maybe she'd take back ever climbing up to the rooftop in the first place.

    It was stupid to think it'd make him happy, or hopeful—when her own optimism is like cracked glass. The temporary joy of talking about silly little things, about their feelings, about a future—it always comes back to sadness, to grief, to another life cut short.

    Everything coming to an end.

    “C’mon birthday girl,” Nick whispers into her ear, his voice pitched low. “I think you’ve got one more in ya.”
