    ~Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine, they are the same. - E. Bronte

    --

    "If you fold a thousand paper cranes, you'll get to meet your soulmate," his mother had told him when he was little, and sent him into space with a pack of paper as thick as his hand. / "Whisper your wish in the the rabbit's ear," his father had told him, folding a perfect origami rabbit and setting it on the table. "Maybe he'll tell it to the Moon Rabbit, and then it will come true."

    --

    A story of two soulmates, living in hope.

    Summary

    Ten years later, Shiro and Keith finally reconnect in a way neither of them had thought to allow for themselves.

    Shiro's gaze sharpens suddenly. Like a lion fixed on its chosen prey, its concentration unwavering, and it takes the very breath from Keith. When was the last time he had been the focus of such a look outside of the battlefield?

    Years.

    "I like a lot of things," Shiro replies, poking around his bowl with his chopsticks until he finds a piece of pork and picks it up. His gaze still burns, the gray like a sword-tip pointed right at Keith's throat. "Some because they're the things I've known. Others because they're the best. And some. . ." He licks his lips, and when he speaks again, the corners of his mouth take a slow upturn. ". . .are both."

    Keith swallows and prods at his own bowl of noodles. How much time has passed? Should he count it down in days and months and years? Or by missed chances? Maybe the wounds he collected and how long it took to heal from them?

    Summary

    The calls come every night at the same time. On the other end is Shiro, smiling at him with a warm glimmer in his eyes that Keith hasn't seen in years. Talking comes easy, easier than it has since he last left Earth to wander the galaxy with the Blades, hoping to forget just how much he loves his once close friend.
    Only the person on the other end isn't the Shiro he last saw gliding across the dance floor with his new husband. This Shiro looks him in the eye as he's demanding to be told the truth and says without hesitation, 'Baby, we've been boyfriends for two years now'.
