“You’re inviting me in just like that?” Reborn resists the urge to blanch, out of fear for his own reputation. Then he remembers that Tsunayoshi is probably blind. “What are you, a lemming?”
“Only if you’re actually planning to kill me.” Tsunayoshi looks up at him, and for a moment, Reborn wishes he wasn’t blind. “You’re not, right?”
Because Reborn doesn’t know how to put into words just how much he would never think about killing Tsunayoshi. Not now. Not ever. Not unless there was no other choice, no other way, nothing else they could do. Not unless there was no other way to save him.
(But, Reborn is quite selfish and arrogant in that sense. He thinks he is the way to save him. That this is the way to salvation. This path. This choice.)
“No,” he says, and hopes his voice doesn’t sound as choked as it feels. “I’m not.”
