A/N: For my journal's challenge meme. Sailor Comet's request:
Otogi/Ryou, required line: "The cruelest lies are often told
without a word" and "The kindest truths are often spoke but
never heard," and title to be "The Last Polka." It's from a Ben
Folds Five song, according to Sam. ^_^ And I threw in Yami
Bakura, because I felt like being cruel in a fluffy way.
. . . I think I'll go reread some of Sam's nifty ficcies now,
"The Last Polka"
Otogi and Ryou sit back to back. For once, nothing is going on.
No one is fighting, no one is lonely.
The kindest truths are often spoke but never heard. The
cruelest lies are often told without a word.
Ryoh says quite often that he loves Otogi. Ryoh's other self
smiles like he loves him too. And Otogi just hangs around and
tries not to screw anything up.
Ryoh and Otogi danced once. Both of Ryoh and Otogi danced,
actually. It was interesting, but Otogi nearly got whiplash
from constantly going from leader to follower and back again.
Still, it was kind of nice.
But that was the only time that they did it.
The last dance.
Sometimes, when you say you love a person, you don't mean it.
But you say it with your voice and they believe you. Sometimes
you act like you hate them when you secretly care, but all they
believe is the way you treat them.
Otogi isn't sure which Ryoh he loves.
But that's okay, because neither Ryoh is sure which one of them
loves him either.
