While Seijuro usually prided himself on being level-headed, there were times when that just wasn’t possible. Usually, those times occurred when he was around his ex-boyfriend, Kentarou. They had run into each other completely by chance that day and, against his better judgement, Seijuro had followed the green-haired man to his home.
One thing had led to another, there had been a fight, and Kentarou had wounded him. Badly. He’d taken a knife to Seijuro’s face, catching him across the eyes more than once. Fortunately, a neighbor had called the police, and Seijuro had been taken to the hospital.
Now, he was sitting up in a hospital bed with bandages around his eyes. The doctor’s words were still ringing in his ears, even though it had been almost an hour since the doctor had left. He would never see again. His eyes had been damaged too severely. He was going to be blind for the rest of his life, with scars around his eyes.
The worst part was the scarring. He wanted to cry just thinking about it. What was Rei going to say? His boyfriend was so focused on beauty; what was he going to say when he saw the scars on Seijuro’s face? Perhaps it was the shock that was making him think illogically, but Seijuro couldn’t imagine that conversation ending well.
"Mikoshiba-kun?" a nurse asked, making him flinch. He hadn’t noticed that she was there. "Can I call anyone for you?"
Frowning, he fished his cell phone out of his pocket and handed it to her. “Rei Ryugazaki’s number should be in there. He’s…he’s my boyfriend. Please don’t tell him what happened. Just tell him there was an accident.”
"Of course." She looked through the contacts and wrote Rei’s number down before handing Seijuro’s phone back to him. "I’ll go call him right now."
Seijuro clutched his phone close to his chest, shaking his head. It was a little bit disingenuous not to tell Rei right off the bat what had happened, but he was afraid that the megane wouldn’t come see him if he knew. And, if nothing else, he wanted to be able to hear Rei’s voice at least one more time.
