His hand.


Yusei had it in his; Bruno's warm, pulsing hand. Yusei's other hand slowly trailed up Bruno's warm arm. He gently pinched Bruno's skin just to feel his hot flesh.

He was real. He was real and warm.


But... He wasn't human. Yusei knew that. Bruno was an android.

But how could that be, when he was so alive and warm and... Human?

Yusei moved his free hand to Bruno's smiling face. He touched his cheek.

Soft and warm. He pressed his hand to Bruno's forehead. Warm skin and hard skull. There was nothing that gave away Bruno's real nature.

"So are you just going sit here all night touching me or...?"

"Sorry..." Yusei said, dropping his hand, "It's just... I can't figure out how you can be a machine when you're so... HUMAN..."

Bruno smiled and pressed his warm lip's to Yusei's.

"Very deceiving, isn't it?" Bruno whispered, "I look like a human, feel like a human, have emotions like a human... But look into my eyes."

Yusei moved his face within a centimeter of Bruno's, as if to kiss him once again. But instead he gazed into Bruno's cold, steel eyes. There was no doubt about the mechanics there. There was no light bouncing off his metallic irises. They seemed to look right through Yusei into nothingness. Yusei shivered.

"I don't understand any of this," Yusei sighed.

"You don't need to understand," Bruno said, wrapping his arms around Yusei, "Just feel. What do you feel?"

Yusei closed his eyes and also wrapped his arms around his lover.

"Warm..." he sighed.

"Then that's all you need to know," Bruno said, kissing the top of his head.



"...I love you."

"I love you too."

"Then THAT'S all I need to know."
