|"You son of a bitch," Kaoru spat out, and the permanent smirk on the redhead across him grew wider. "You finally got that right," Die drawled, stepping forward in two, quick strides to close the distance between them. Kaoru realizes then; he cannot hate this man any more than he does at that moment, but amidst everything else, the questions, the lack of answers, the incorrigible trail that seemingly leads to nowhere; right now, there is no one else left to trust.|
"I was supposed to kill you." Reita's whisper was quiet but clear, his voice slicing through the air like a bullet. Ruki didn't dare wince – barely moved – as Reita cocked the loaded pistol in his hand and took a long drag of his cigarette. "Why didn't you?" the blonde asked, straining to keep his voice from quivering. Reita's glazed eyes narrowed, always at the ready to kill like the animal he was…but his touch on Ruki's shoulder was gentle. He didn't answer; he never answered, and that wasn’t going to change. Instead, he looked out the window, the lights of the city stretching before him. "Die said some things are worse than death."
Reita paused. "But something in Sin City smells foul."
