In October, he returns from the last of these missions and finds that somebody is already in his cramped apartment. He nearly attacks the dim figure, but something deeper than any single sense of his identifies her in a split-second. It's Rin.
She's been busy. He didn't get a chance to see her last month, and a small, frightened part of him hoped he never did again, because he doesn't want her to see what he's become. But most of him--nearly all of him--was afraid of her absence.
Now she takes his hands in hers, which are very warm, and puts them on her waist. She reaches up, touches his face, pulls down his mask, and reminds him that he is alive.
