[the smell of cigarette smoke lingers in Ritsuka's bedroom, as bitter and suffocating as the secrets Soubi had finally revealed just moments before.
It can't be true.
Ritsuka knows how often Soubi lies to him. but until now, Soubi's lies have always seemed to be about protecting Ritsuka in some strange way. saying he loved him. saying he didn't know anything about seven moons. reassuring him that Seimei wasn't cruel.
Soubi wouldn't lie about something so serious; Soubi wouldn't be sadistic enough to tell Ritsuka that Seimei is alive when he really isn't. it would serve no purpose, and if Ritsuka were thinking more charitably he would acknowledge that Soubi would never lie to hurt him. so it has to be true.
Seimei is alive.
somewhere, somehow, Ritsuka would have gotten to see his brother again. for the first time since his arrival Ritsuka regrets being brought to the prison. but before he can dwell too much on what it means for Seimei to be alive in a world Ritsuka no longer belongs to, another more heart-wrenching thought seizes him.
Seimei is alive, and Soubi didn't tell me.
even if Soubi thought they were from the same point in time, it had been nearly a week since they had figured out the truth. nearly a week and Soubi had not said one word until now. and that, above all things, is what Ritsuka cannot handle right now. that is what makes him burst out of the room, not even bothering to lock the door behind him, and run as fast as he can to Roxas's clocktower. half of it is instinct, the strong sense of comfort he feels around his friend driving him towards him, but Ritsuka is also strongly aware of how deep his trust runs with Roxas. he has shared secrets with him he's barely breathed a word of to anyone else here, and it is that trust he needs right now.
he makes his way to the base of the clocktower, sweaty and shivering in the chill night air. he takes a moment to catch his breath, finally switching his communicator on voice:]
