It’s on your face.
Kaneki was staring, he just couldn’t help it though. He was captivated by Hide’s dazzling smile, as though the sun beamed straight out of the other’s mouth. Maybe it was more like the moon, like the sun light shone off of Hide’s teeth. It just lit up that face, that face that was just so soft for him. Kaneki had noticed it, the way that Hide looked at him was different from the way the other looked at anyone else, gentle and candid expression reserved only of Kaneki. It made his own face heat up.
“I really like your smile,” Kaneki found himself blurting out, tongue loose from the way Hide’s smile undid him.
“You do?” Hide asked, doing something that Kaneki wasn’t privy to often, the sunflower haired boy blushed as he scratched at his cheek, adverting his eyes.
“Y-yeah,” Kaneki replied, nodding as he hoped to see more of that tentative face.
