The Joys of Revenge

It’s only the first night and he’s already regretting it big time. Whatever made him agree to take up on his sister’s offer to live together…

Another moan resonates through the house and Ayato presses his pillow harder onto his ears in an attempt to block out the horrifying noise – fucking hell he doesn’t need to know how his sister sounds while doing the nasty!

After the disbandment of Aogiri, Hinami decided to go to :re and join her family. Even though she had assured him that all of them would welcome him, Ayato left the very next day for fear he may cave in to his true feelings. Excluding last night’s disgusting audio, he’s glad to be home because she is here.
