AU where Rin and Rei were dating for S2E12 (haha... hahaha)
“Rin. I’m glad you called.”
Rei couldn’t help but smile, though it was weak. Everything that had happened at the festival the night before was an unhappy blur, culminating in himself and Nagisa heading home after bidding farewell to a distraught Makoto. He was worried about his friends, worried about the state of his team, and his boyfriend was just the person to lift his spirits, if even just a bit.
Or that’s what he thought, until Rin actually spoke, in a tone that was halting and apologetic.
“Hey, Rei. Um… I had something to talk to you about. Do you remember me mentioning that I got invited to visit Australia?”
