pulse and breath
I tried to post something on Valentine's Day and the servers didn't let me.

a... /second/ epilogue to Emergency Light?

[Part 3 of the ‘self-indulgent aoilight within’ series; sequel to ‘Emergency Light’; sequels: ‘spring cleaning for skeletons’ and ‘Epilogue (Emergency Light)’]
“Could I have your hand for a moment?” he asked, holding out his own.

Holding his shaking breath, Aoi stared at Light’s face, trying to discern his intention. He had to break the gaze to accurately place his hand in Light’s palm. His whole arm tensed up when Light traced the shape of his hand to determine whether it was left or right by the location of the thumb. He lifted Aoi’s right hand to the left side of his neck, pressing Aoi’s fingers under his chin.

A pulse throbbed—and sooner than it should have, it throbbed again. More than twice a second, it beat with fast blood.

“I am aware that I come across as an irritatingly confident prick,” he said with a small laugh, a /nervous/ laugh. “I promise it’s entirely an act I’m not very good at dropping. But here’s a glimpse behind the curtain, as the saying goes.”

The pulse was slowing, but it still had not fallen to a true resting rate. Light’s lips were quivering in his smile.

“So then,” he said, “does that put us on equal footing?”

“I’ve known you for only a few short bursts over a long span of time,” Light said. “You’ve changed, of course, but at your core, you’re the same person I’ve admired all this time. I’ve always liked the way you manage to be both an extreme pessimist and a steadfast optimist at the same time. You see the worst in everything, yet you’re always determined to persevere. Even when things are entirely hopeless, you believe your own wits will get you through.”

Emergency Light
In the continuing adventures of SOIS and Crash Keys, Aoi Kurashiki finds himself partnered with Light Field as they stand by to receive while their sisters infiltrate a mysterious facility. When Clover transmits a distress signal, the boys find themselves literally and metaphorically traveling into deep, dark trouble.

For Snake and Santa's days of 999 week, although this takes place well after the events of ZTD.

[Part 1 of the ‘self-indulgent aoilight within’ series; sequels: ‘pulse and breath’, ‘spring cleaning for skeletons’, and ‘Epilogue (Emergency Light)’]
