Mikleo felt the overwhelming need to speak, to fill these silent moments with words so that he could halt his inner monologue, even for a moment. “Honestly,” he started, a teasing edge dripping into his tone, “you'd think after so many years asleep, you’d be easier to get out of bed,”
And just like that, the pin dropped. A shift in the mood - slight, but still very much tangible – passed between them. While it wasn’t his intention to draw attention to their situation, Mikleo had inadvertently started a conversation he truly did not wish to have.
Sorey and Mikleo wake up in Elysia for the first time since Sorey's awakening. Some Post-game Sormik feels.
“I’m having second thoughts,” he tells Mikleo. It doesn’t help that Mikleo’s making breakfast for the two of them, like always, but twice more domestic than usual.
“What?” Mikleo says, shoving the omelet onto Sorey’s plate with far too much force. “What happened? You were fine yesterday! Great, even! It was your idea!”
Well, today I woke up at 4am and realized I would only be dating you for six more days, which left me awake in bed for the next four hours until I pretended to just wake up. Thanks, Mikleo! For teaching me how to lie, I couldn’t have been able to cover up my feelings without you. “I’m freaking out,” Sorey says.
