    Summary

    Diluc hated him at least as much as any Fatui strolling around Mondstadt. He would never forgive Kaeya for what transpired that night. He would never face him with anything but hatred and disgust in his eyes and voice. And that was what Kaeya, a sinner from Khaenri’ah, deserved.

    Adelinde grabbed his arm, tight enough to hurt a little, and only then did he realize that he started laughing. Hysterically so. He blinked once, twice, slowly regaining his senses, the laughter dying down. Tears pricked at the corners of his eyes, though he refused to let them fall.

    There was a tiny glimmer of hope shining inside his heart that tried to convince him that she was telling the truth. It cost him a lot of resolves to thoroughly shatter it, to grind it into dust. He couldn’t allow himself to grasp for foolish wishes. People like him didn’t get to do that. They didn’t get to hope for pleasant futures.

    ----

    While out on a mission, Kaeya gets seriously injured. Diluc finds him, bringing him back to the Winery for recovery. Truths get revealed and the brothers finally have a long overdue conversation.

    Summary

    In the middle of the fight against a hydro abyss mage, he felt a discomfort deep in his chest. For the moment, he decided to ignore it and continue with his work of weakening the shield. His cryo vision was spot on, so freezing the mage and destroying his shield was an easy task.

    But when the mage’s shield was already broken, and the still living body of the creature lay on the ground weak, the discomfort that had been born in his chest turned into pain.

    -

    "The options for a healthy and stable quality of life are few. None, even." The healer had said.

    Jean looked at him startled with wide eyes at such a revelation. "What do you mean?"

    The healer closed his eyes and shook his head sorrowfully.

    Or
    Kaeya has felt pain in his chest and every day he feels weaker. He thinks he shouldn't take it so seriously, but when Jean takes him to the cathedral, he hears something that changes everything.
