Hidekane - Headcanon
When Kaneki went missing during his torture, the only way Hide could sleep was by wearing one of the sweaters Kaneki once left behind at his apartment. It still smelled like a mixture of Kaneki’s cologne and a little of sweat, but that didn’t bother Hide. Even after so long it still brought Hide some kind of comfort and made him feel like he was close to Kaneki.
Although sometimes the sweater wasn’t enough for him, he would wear it some nights and curl up in bed, but he would feel nothing… no sense of comfort or closeness to Kaneki. When this was the case, he would wrap his arms around himself and sink further under the covers, willing himself not to cry, instead… he would just pray that one day Kaneki would come back to him.
