    Summary

    Ugetsu had always looked delicate, like an especially valuable porcelain doll; elegant and well-made, but still breakable. Don’t touch, he seemed to say, with the motion of his bow, the angle of his thin wrist as he smoked a cigarette, the painted perfection of his cavalier smile. I only exist to be admired from afar.

    Still, Akihiko had—he’d reached out all that time ago and touched, like a spoiled child who couldn’t help himself—and found that Ugetsu’s body was not made of glass, but flesh and bone and blood, the same as his. His skin was thinner, body softer, nails sharper. He was warm.

    And yet he was still breakable.

    In which Akihiko buries his own life to put Ugetsu back together again.

    Summary

    “Do you regret leaving Vienna?” is what Akihiko said then, still a teenager and still believing in a concept of love that was idealistic and kind. But what he meant was, do you regret meeting me? That change was good, wasn’t it?

    Ugetsu turned his head towards him, dark hair falling into his face, and chuckled a little. And even as Akihiko met his eyes, even as he sensed desperation swirling in that violent green sea, Ugetsu only breathed out a simple, “Oh, Aki.”

    Ugetsu and Akihiko cross paths for the first time since October. Ugetsu reflects on the past, struggles with the present, and looks towards the future.
