"…It won't work."

"I know," He said again, impatience laced in his voice. "I know."

She said nothing.

"Love…?" She repeated.

Of course, she knew what it was. Scientifically, of course. She couldn't remember any of her former feelings as Kirisi.

Hei turned to her, coughing and turning slightly pink.

"It's when someone-"

"I know." Yin cut him off. "…It won't work."

Hei glanced at her form the corners of his eyes and turned away, shoving his hands in the pockets of his jeans.

"Perhaps," His voice had turned emotionless, and he tilted his head up to look at the glimmering night sky filled with pseudo-stars. Yin flinched. He didn't sound like he was going to say anything else. Yin found herself hating the awkward silence.


Hei turned abruptly, hardly believing his ears. Feeling his gaze, she flushed slightly. A trick of the moonlight…? Hei just had to wonder.

"Let's try…" she repeated, lifting her blank magenta gaze to meet his steady coal eyes.

He snapped out of his stupor when he noticed that she was expecting an answer.

Smiling gently, he took her in his arms in a soft embrace.
