He's never felt a shock like this, coursing through him at high speed, like a roaring freight train.
There's no blade embedded in him, but Hei feels himself going weak in the knees, listening to Yin on her own cot, listening to her shuddery, low breathing.
Paradise can be found in the smallest of moments — one of the pamphlets of the tropical resort glared this at him at the front desk while checking in. There can be no solace until they're both no longer being chased down by their enemies, Hei told himself without hesitation.
Even in the darkness, he can see the silhouette of her thin, little body swallowed up in Hei's black undershirt, and where Yin's arm drapes over herself, tensing and moving slightly, reaching.
Dolls do not seek any carnal pleasures, not from others or themselves. She's not like the Dolls — she is like Yin. Her own evolving, incredible self.
Hei supposes she already knows he's there, but still, he walks quietly around his cot, eyes on her.
Should… should he gather his weapons-belt and leave her to her business? Hei knows how to act as Li, but… he's not acting for Yin.
Never for her.
When he hears his name murmured off Yin's lips, full of longing and desire, Hei makes his decision based on that surge of irrationality, climbing onto the bedding, easing her to roll and face him.
Yin's face feels flush-warm and relaxed when he cups the side of her face, lying down next to her.
Her left hand still lightly presses between her thighs, exploring damp, hot flesh. Nobody has ever ruined her — Hei has made sure of that, ever since he met her. She was not someone's personal possession to be sold, or their fuck-toy.
"I'm here," Hei mumbles out, as Yin's fingertips to her other hand brush gently against his lower lip.
He can suffer weakness, but only for her.
Darker Than Black isn't mine. I DID A REWATCH WITH CONNER (GLOVE23) A WHILE BACK AND WE LOVED IT AND I HAAAAAAD TO DO SOME FANFIC FOR ONE OF THE BEST OTPS OUT THERE. SERIOUSLY THEY MAY BE IN MY TOP TEN ANIME OTPS. If you love them too, raise your hand! Any thoughts/comments appreciated!
