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.
