Wow, it's truly amazing how much story-telling you can pack into such a short little piece of fic!
And you sure can keep the reader in suspense - why won't Kijin be wearing THIS mask soon? why is this one different? At the very end, these questions are answered - and then not. The reader is still left with the question of why Kijin started wearing masks in the first place. The reason given in the anime season 1, that it is to prevent his colleages from getting distracted, is just preposterous. The reason given in the light novels, that it is because the woman he loved rejected him on account of his beauty, is not plausible - would anyone spend so much of his life in a mask for that reason? So let's see what your imagination can come up with.
The words painted behind the mask - stroke of genius. Just like that, the reader can feel Reishin's love and devotion. Very touching.

interesting- your notes on "doting the eyes"
like the symbolism - that Kijin's last mask will be his own face.
Incidentally, why would Kijin, the most beautiful person on earth, be insecure about his face? I thought he wore a mask so that those around him will not be distracted by his beauty?
