    Summary

    Reki’s smiling to himself, nestled in Langa’s jacket, the scent of Langa surrounding Reki in his own bed, the intimacy of that thought not lost on him, as he clicks into Langa’s playlists. He starts to scroll down by default, knowing that a snowboarding playlist has to be something Langa made a long time ago and therefore would be lower down on the list when something catches his eye. It takes Reki’s mind a second to register it and then he’s scrolling back up to the very top.

    And there it is, staring back at him.

    The first playlist on Langa’s iPod.

    The playlist that’s titled simply: Reki.

    --

    Reki borrows Langa's jacket and forgets to give it back to him. Later that night, he discovers Langa's iPod in one of the pockets and a very curiously titled playlist filled with a lot of love songs.

    Summary

    “Reki, it’s not the same without you—“ There’s something raw and desperate in Langa’s voice, something wild and untamed and completely and utterly true. Something that comes from the depths of who he is, some truth being born into the world that could never be denied.

    Reki can’t stop himself from looking over at Langa again. He needs to see the look in Langa’s eyes, needs to see the set of his jaw as they both make these declarations, as they breathe these things into the world and make them real.  “I know that now.”

    Summary

    With a gentle tug, Langa turns Reki around so they’re facing each other again. He pulls Reki’s hand forward until it’s open in front of him and then he presses Reki’s S pin into his palm, staring with so much intensity it’s almost unbearable because Reki still won’t look at him. His fingers curl under Langa’s, wrapping around the pin as he scoffs, turning his head to the side.

    “Why?” Langa presses, his hand still firm around Reki’s wrist. “Reki, why?”

    Summary

    At this point, he’s already drenched to the bone anyways, the water sloshing in his shoes with each slowing step. His house is still a few streets away and the lamps are the only light he has to guide him there. And he should be going home, he has every reason to go home, but he finds that his feet stop moving of their own accord. He tries to breathe in the cool air of the rain, tries to feel the dampness against his cheek and think of it as refreshing. It doesn’t work.

    Because the only thing he’s actually thinking about is Langa and the way he didn’t follow.

    Reki walked away and Langa— Langa just let him go.

    Summary

    “Sure?” Langa doesn’t like the way Reki is looking at him without meeting his gaze. “Of course I’ll help you, Reki. What’s up?”

    It takes a long second for Reki to answer. When he finally does, Langa feels the world slow to a stop around them. “Well, the thing is... my soulmate is always writing on their arm. But they’re always writing in English, so I don’t know what it says. I was hoping you might translate it for me?”

    --

    Reki asks Langa to translate the English writing of his soulmate and is left to wonder why, exactly, Langa turns so incredibly red as he does exactly that.

    (The soulmate au nobody asked me for)
