    Summary


    “Come to me when the pain is unbearable on your own.”

    Xiao remembers the words spoken to him like a promise, a vow by Morax. Clutching his head and attempting to will the shadows away, he’d been ashamed to be found in such a state. Weak and as meek as a newborn, unbefitting his status. The Archon had then found for him a quiet portion of the mountains away from human settlements and further still from his fellow Adepti. Medicine and calming teas, after all, only did so much to alleviate his condition.

    Morax had taught Xiao then, all while gently cradling his trembling form, an entirely new way to distract himself from the ever-present weight bearing down on his soul.

    Thank you to @4zayri for commissioning this ♡

    Summary

    "This way," Morax says. His hand is on Xiao's elbow, steering him. Xiao watches the uneven path down to the riverbank and tries not to stumble.

    Morax brings him to a flat rock at the water's edge and sits him down on it, then kneels in the water in front of him. He washes the blood and soot from Xiao's skin with his own hands.

    Summary

    Bennett goes on, "I can fight by myself! I've done it before, when somebody was supposed to partner with me and... things happened... I've figured out how to get by..."

    He trails off as Katheryne shakes her head. "The guildmaster required an absolute minimum of two adventurers for this commission. Benny's Adventure Team may have a full roster on the books but none of the listed members are available to join you at this time."

    "But I am," Tartaglia says brightly.

    Bennett jumps, his tail puffing up at least twice normal size.

    Times like these, when Kaeya is rutting into Diluc's hand with the scent of alcohol heavy on his breath, are the only times when he calls Diluc 'brother'.
