Shin had not been prepared for this. Like Collin, he had imagined himself safe enough, wandering the city streets in the evening. There was no mugger that would be able to get him, too strong and too fast for any of that nonsense. His guard had been down, lowered since he’d relaxed with Collin in this new city. No one would have been able to get such a jump on him two months ago, when he walked every step cautiously, waiting for an attack. But things were different now. And they had taken precaution themselves, his attackers. They knew exactly how dangerous the half breed could be, especially if allowed the chance to summon his innate abilities… Thus they had used the arrows to deliver the spell to stun him, dropping him as easily as one of Collin’s tranqs. Shin should have known not to touch it, but it was his nature, too curious and startled to think about not touching the fluttering long white piece of rice paper.

When he had found himself on his knees Shin had been virtually powerless, like every ounce of will power had been sucked right out of him. He stared dumbly as they had revealed themselves, eyes widening in recognition and horror at the realization that these were not simply a couple of assholes from Pandora. All he could even do was kneel there and watch as they drew closer, circling him and calling him a traitor. The light caught their blades and Shin swallowed when he realized that he would soon be feeling it at his throat. It wouldn’t be for long, though. There were a few seconds when he thought over the things he had experienced there, with Collin, Toby, and Polly. He was grateful, but sad, hoping that it wouldn’t be too upsetting for them.

He closed his eyes and waited for the kiss of the cold blade, but it didn’t come. Instead there was the sudden rush of chaos. Shin blinked open his eyes, focusing immediately on Collin as he took down the assassins. It was oddly reminiscent of the night Collin had crashed the summoning ritual. Shin couldn’t really move, but he could feel. Collin was..angry, upset, scared. But it wasn’t like it had been the night with the mutated dogs, when it had been for himself. Shin wondered if it was for him.. or maybe it was only his own feelings being reflected back at him from the blond, a sort of projection Shin was laying over Collin’s emotions. The arrows had started to hurt tremendously...a sick sort of ache, the muscles around them spasming. It made them quiver, and it was sort of mesmerizing, staring at them. It wasn’t the worst Shin had ever had...not by far, but it was still painful and a little worrisome. He knew that they probably used the same sorts of arrow points as his own coven had, serrated to make more of a mess being pulled out than they had going in.

Within moments it seemed, Collin had the three of them down, and was grabbing at him. He felt like he was swimming through syrup, though. The spell he had activated with his touch had not faded, but Collin’s sheer will was attempting overpower it, forcing Shin to obey the other’s desire even without words and despite the fact that he was still stunned. Shin made an effort to speak, but mostly it just came out as an unintelligible sort of mumble. Somehow he made it to his feet, and then he was being pulled through into that weird place between. He staggered, hand clutched at Collin’s as he sank to his knees again. The paper was still dangling there, twirling idly at the end of the shaft protruding from him. He knew if the paper was burned it would break the spell written on it, but he couldn’t expect Collin to know the intricacies of little things like that. It was a different magical culture, after all.

Turning his eyes up to the other, his brows knitted helplessly as he weakly lifted a hand, straining to indicate the paper. It had to be destroyed to release him from the weird state he was in. It was an incredible effort to lift his hand enough to brush fingers at the bottom edge of the innocent looking paper. “Ss..” he managed, hitching in a little breath. “Ssp…ell.” he struggled to form the word, nothing in his body wanting to obey. “Burn..” he gasped out, though it was slurred, giving Collin a searching look, desperate.

It wasn't just bleed over from Shin that had Collin so upset, though he could feel the faint impression of emotions that paralleled his own. It was for the other that he felt the way he did, uncertain and afraid of seeing Shin downed and still how he was, angry at the attack and the pain he felt. He wasn't even thinking when he reacted to the trio that had been closing in on Shin, not caring about who or what they might be, just that they had chosen to attack the one he was bound to. It had been simple reaction at that point, much like how he'd acted on instinct to cut down Shin's coven that fateful night.


Had this happened at the beginning of their being bound, Collin still would have defended Shin, but more out of necessity than anything. Pandora needed Shin alive, needed the two of them to remain bound to prevent Raiju from taking another vessel and manifesting in the human realm. That wasn't the main motivation now though, Collin cared about Shin, he wouldn't let anything bad happen to him so long as he could prevent it. It wasn't just a matter of owing the other his life, though... there was that. It was a matter of having to come to genuinely care about the half-demon. Just like how Collin would never have let anything happen to Toby, he wouldn't let anything happen to Shin either. The other was a part of his tiny little circle now, the very select few who he actually gave a shit about.

All he'd been worried about in the moment was getting Shin over into the other realm. There were so few weavers around that it was highly unlikely anyone could follow them over. In fact, the only other one he knew of was Tess. Once they were there he could turn his focus on Shin, clutching at one of the half-demon's hands and turning as the other sank to his knees. Collin didn't try to push Shin further, happy enough to be on the other side, feeling much safer for it. He sank to his knees as well, steely blue eyes wide as he took in Shin's features. No, he didn't know what to do, he'd never been in a situation quite like this before. Collin's solution was to get them to Pandora, though that would prove to be a task indeed if Shin couldn't even walk.


When the other turned eyes to him, Collin was quiet, realizing that the other was attempting to communicate. His heart was in his ears, he wanted to shake the other and demand he spit it out... but that was a half crazed thought, one prompted by desperation. So he only nodded encouragingly, if not somewhat frantically, when Shin started to try and breathe the words. It only took a second for him to understand what the other meant, drawing the connection between the paper being touched and the two words. “Burn the paper?” He asked, even as he spoke though he was digging the lighter out of the pocket he kept his cigarettes in, producing it and flicking a flame to life to light up the thin rice paper.


It caught flame easily and he had to snuff it out when it started up towards the shaft, pinching it with his fingers. Collin raised a hand to cup at Shin's cheek, blond brows pinching as he searched the other's features. “Are you okay?” Collin had to ask, had to make sure. “We should get you to Pandora, they can take the arrows out with the least amount of damage.” He sounded worried because he was. It didn't matter that Shin healed fast, it was disturbing to see the shafts of the arrows sticking out of his body. Collin could feel them, like a reflection of the other's pain, and an ache in his palm. He could probably rip them out himself, but he worried about the heads, knowing that arrows could be nasty things to deal with.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

The entire situation had caught Shin terribly off guard. One moment he’d been happily heading out to see Polly, the next he’d been waiting for the blade to cut through his neck. He didn’t know what they were doing there, how they had found him, but he knew without a doubt that they had been sent by another of the covens. Not simply for the fact they were Japanese, but because they had used the simple but effective spell and the one word, traitor. But why chase him all the way across the world just to kill him? Shin knew that they must have been angry, but he didn’t realize that as long as he was alive, that they could not even attempt to repeat their summoning of his father. At least not in the way that they had been. He didn’t know that with him alive that Raiju was prevented even moreso from meddling in earthly affairs.

All Shin knew was that he was badly shaken, though mostly it was from the spell that nearly paralyzed him. It was an awful thing, to be all but powerless, unable to do much more than stare and wait for death. It was a testament to the power of their bond and the power of Collin’s will that Shin had even managed to stand and speak at all. He felt the panic and urgency of the older one once they had reached the other side, and he was doing the best he could. Thankfully Collin caught on quick, burning the little harmless scrap of paper. Spells like that had been a specialty of their covens. Insidious but harmless looking little things that were activated by touch. They were written on objects sometimes, or inscribed into the frames of various rooms, better than any lock or alarm. The only way to break the spell was to burn or break or somehow destroy what it was written on.

As the fire ate up the inked lines on the paper Shin felt it, like a warmth passing over him. The numbness began to fade, tingling sensation back through him. Along with it came the renewed ache of the two arrows embedded in him, though. The hand at his cheek distracted him, and he turned dark eyes to the other’s, staring into Collin’s for a lingering moment. He didn’t know how Collin had gotten there, hadn’t realized that the other could use their bond just at he had several times over. He was grateful, though, a welling emotion that was filling him up. Collin was concerned, worried about him..he could feel it. That was what it had to be.. Or maybe Shin was only wanting it to be that way. It was a very emotional moment. Collin had saved his life, and like when he had done so for the witch, it shifted something.

Shin almost leaned in to clutch at the blond, still filled with the adrenaline of fear and knowing he was about to die. He got as far as to shift toward him, but then Collin was pointing out the arrows, and the half demon blinked, turning his eyes to the shafts. Lifting the hand not gripped tightly to Collin’s, Shin gripped the first shaft a few inches from his chest, snapping it. He did the same with the second, but didn’t attempt to tug the embedded tips out. He could walk now, though the two points of pain felt sick with the intensity of the hurt that radiated from them. Arrows were nasty things..he would have much preferred open wounds. At least those were as bad as they got and then started healing. Shin knew that the arrows going in were just the beginning, and it would be a lot worse cutting them out.


“I’m sorry Collin.” he said once he was on his feet. He didn’t know why they were there after him, but it was a nuisance, and he felt badly that the other had had to rush in like that. They’d only been three..they should have been nothing for Shin to dispatch quickly. Instead he had knelt there uselessly and waited for his head to be cut off. “Thank you.” he said more softly, almost shy suddenly. He would have been dead if Collin hadn’t shown up to save him.

Shin didn't know why the witches had bothered traveling so far to kill him, but Collin did. He didn't really understand that the other didn't realize that he was blocking Raiju's way, figuring if anyone knew what was going on it would be Shin. He was still concerned, brows quirking together when the other reached up to snap the shafts of the arrows off. Collin could feel the deep sick throb of them echoing off of Shin, the fleshy scar on his palm was twinging as it had been with the Bane. He could only imagine how bad it must be for Shin.

When the other started getting to his feet, Collin stood as well, giving Shin's hand a little squeeze when he started to apologize. “Don't be sorry Shin, it's not your fault.” He said gently. It wasn't as if he'd had to use some kind of draining power to bring him back to life, it hadn't been some gigantic sacrifice to intervene. “I'm just happy that you're okay.” He added, genuinely glad that Shin was in one piece and relatively unscathed. The arrows sucked, but he'd get the other to Pandora and get them taken care of. A dose of blood and everything should be just fine. This wasn't likely to be the end of it, he figured, once they found out that their assassins failed, there were bound to be more.

"Home is closer than headquarters, let's get the bike. Get you fixed up as fast as we can." It was very flat there, the bike was even visible, a little black speck against the violet landscape. He was quiet, thinking about how they might need to progress from here. There was no way he wouldn't be able to worry every time that Shin left now. What if he hadn't made it in time? What if he didn't the next time? It was enough to make him feel incredibly protective.

The bike looked closer than it was, but the walk wasn't too bad considering that Shin hadn't been that far from the flat. He helped the other get on, as careful as ever to maintain contact. He tried to drive carefully, knowing that each bump was jarring and painful, feeling the echoes of it radiating through himself. Once they'd reached Pandora, Collin pulled Shin through a portal into the back hall, moving for the elevator. This wasn't a popular time for agents, and the halls were largely empty. Once they'd reached the elevator, Collin released Shin's hand and dug out his phone to text Toby.

They reached the medical level and Collin lightly touched at Shin's shoulder blades, tucking the phone away. There was a nurse on duty who stood up and immediately rushed around to take a look at the arrow wounds, another moving to snag a gurney and wheel it over. They were quick to snap into action, knowing they'd have to cut out the heads in order to remove them. Collin stayed with Shin, scowling at the nurse who tried to convince him to stay behind. She gave up quickly, letting the blond trail along as they encouraged Shin down onto the gurney. They were wheeling him into the back of a room, pulling curtains closed around them. Collin stayed out of the way, but was there to answer any questions. They wanted to use a local anesthetic, calling over the doctor who was the same shuffling old man from before, squinting at the half-demon and humming to himself.

When Collin told him not to apologize,that he was just glad that he was okay, Shin nodded. He wasn't at the moment, but he would be, as soon as they got the fucking arrow tips out of him and he could start healing. He was still a little shocked, not able to really wrap his mind around what had just happened yet. The arrow in his shoulder was buried into muscle, but the one in his chest was a little trickier. It was near his heart, thankfully it had missed that, but Shin was concerned about the depth of it. He didn't think it had punctured the lung, maybe stopped by the cartilage around his ribs...whatever had happened, it had felt more firmly lodged when he'd grabbed it to snap the shaft.

The walk to the bike seemed to take forever. His legs and feet worked just fine, but each step jarred a little pain through him. He'd crawled himself away in worse shape before, though,and he didn't complain about having to walk the distance. All he could think was that he was so thankful he didn't have to pull the arrows out himself. He'd had to pull a javelin out once, it had gone into his side, and after giving it a few tugs he'd ended up just having to shove it the rest of the way through. Once they were on the bike Shin hunched a bit. He couldn't press against the larger ones back because of the arrows jutting from him, but he did drop his head forward, planting it between Collin's shoulder blades as they rode.

By the time they reached Pandora Shin was in a cold sweat. It just felt awful, the points buried in him. Once they were out he knew there would be relief, but he was pretty much just focusing on not bumping into anything as they moved into the building from the portal. His brain kept revolving around the fact that Collin had come to him. He hadn't needed to...it wasn't like Shin with the bond, where he couldn't really do anything but rush to him when Collin was in danger. Collin had come to him of his own accord, and that fact filled Shin with something he couldn't put a finger on. It was more than just gratitude, it was something that caused his heart to ache, a very tender little pain that had nothing to do with the ache of the arrows.

He really didn't like the medical wing of Pandora. Maybe it was just because he only seemed to go there when he was hurting. But he didn't like the smell of it, the same smell that room with the stasis pod had had. He resisted getting on the gurney, but eventually let himself be herded onto it and then pushed down. It was only after Collin had insisted he was coming with that Shin had done so. He felt oddly vulnerable, laying there at the mercy of the nurses, awkward as they cut away the tee and the open button down so they could get to his pale skin. The places the arrows had gone in were flushed, just a little rim of blood so far around where they had entered. Dark eyes followed the needle as they injected the numbing solution, as well as an agent to restrict the bleeding for when they began cutting. He'd made it clear it was okay to numb, but not to try putting him to sleep.

Shin stared down the doctor when he came up to prod at the wounds. It was agreed that they'd do the shoulder first, since it was in the way of the one in the chest and less risky. It was about the time they had secured his arm and shoulder to start cutting when Shin remembered Polly. He looked up from where he'd been watching them cut him open to Collin, a little note of panic in his tone. “Collin, I was going to Polly's! Can you call her? Ah… just.. tell her I might be late..?” He asked, brows knitting as he tried to think of how he was going to explain this. He gave a little flinch as the doctor rocked the shaft, searching for the tip. “aaahh.. oww.. don't play with it….” He whined, more frustrated with the situation than anything. They were taking forever and he wanted to get out of there.

Even had this been anyone else, Collin still would have stepped in and defended them. Not just out of necessity, though had this happened a few weeks earlier it definitely would have been more out of that than anything. There was also that Collin was a relatively decent person at heart. He was an asshole sometimes, and he really didn't care about how his attitude affected anyone around him, but when it came down to it he had a strong set of morals. Even had it been Baker, or someone as equally detestable, being attacked he would have stepped in.


That being said, though, Collin hadn't done it out of necessity or moral drive alone. There was a genuine care in him for Shin now, and he felt responsible for the half-demon. So long as he could help it, he wouldn't let anything happen to the other. A genuine bond had formed ,one that went beyond that of the one that tethered them together, at least on his end. Collin had come to see Shin as a partner... and a friend. Things had been so rough in the beginning, but once he'd actually given the other a chance, it had all shifted. Funny how less than two months ago he wouldn't have trusted Shin to step foot outside of the flat alone, and now he trusted the other as much as he trusted Toby. The bond had helped them to skip a few steps too, the connection between them fed and ever growing as time went on.


Toby had a lot of questions, but Collin reassured him, telling him they were at the medical wing and that Shin would be okay. The other asked about coming, but Collin said that wasn't necessary. It wouldn't be a long stay he imagined. Or hoped anyhow, hopefully there were no complications. When Shin looked to him and started worrying over Polly, Collin's brows lifted. “You're still going to go over?” He was a little surprised, though maybe he shouldn't have been. Shin did heal fast... still. Collin felt incredibly protective now, and he was quiet for a few beats, trying to wrangle with both how he felt and what was appropriate. Shin was his own person at the end of the day. “Maybe you should stay home and rest.” He suggested, but he did pull his phone back out to text Polly. At first he hadn't been certain if he even had the other's number, but he found it. Maybe Toby had put it in his phone at some point. He sent her a quick text, leaving it vague and just telling her what Shin had requested.


Collin made a face when the doctor pulled at the arrow, feeling the echo of it deep within his own shoulder. He shoved the phone back away and moved so that he was on the opposite side of where they were working on Shin. Not even thinking about it really, he let his fingers slip through Shin's eyes settling on the other. It seemed natural at this point. Plus, Collin wanted to be as comforting as he could. Shin had maybe endured worse, but that didn't make this any less serious in his book. “You should be careful from here on out, there might be more. They might have been watching for a while, they might know where we live.” That foreboding click of heels had his eyes raising as Ava hovered just beyond the gap in the curtains, peering in. Collin looked at her but didn't budge yet. He didn't really want to leave Shin's side currently.

Toby really couldn’t help but worry. He didn’t like being stuck at home while this was going on. Not after the close call Collin had had just weeks before, and not after seeing the look on his lover’s face when whatever had happened had come through the bond. He almost wanted to jump in a taxi and head to Pandora to be there, but Collin had told him it would be okay. So he paced about the kitchen a bit, fully expecting for Shin to return with the other once they’d fixed him up. If he found out Shin planned on going on to Polly’s then he’d be pretty upset. After a few minutes he texted Collin back, asking if he needed to set up the couch for Shin. The kid healed fast, but he wasn’t even certain what had happened to him at that point, and he didn’t really want him climbing up into the loft of his bed if he was hurt.

Toby had a tendency to coddle.. He couldn’t help it. He was maybe the smaller one, the more laid back one, but deep down, the wolf in him had a very protective and territorial sort of urge. He had long ago accepted that there were certain things he just had to get used to. One was the feeling he had about those close to him. He was loathe to refer to it as a ‘pack’ , but really, that was exactly what it was. It included Collin, Polly, his family...and now it appeared that Shin was just as much a part of it as the rest of them. Knowing that the other had been hurt was very upsetting to him, and he was just as concerned as his lover about the half demon.

When Collin asked if he still planned on going over to Polly’s Shin bit at his lip. He had really wanted to see her that night. Not even worried about the sex..he’d just wanted to hang out. He didn’t give Collin an answer, though, his attention turned after that to the work going on with his shoulder. Another needle was brought, injecting more numbing deeper into the tissue before they managed to make a neat incision all the way to the barbed head. It was a nasty piece of work, and as messy as the cutting out of it was, if he had had to pull it out it would have torn the muscle to shreds, incapacitating the entire arm for days maybe.

When the fingers laced with his Shin blinked and looked up at Collin from where he’d been watching the doctor work. It was..nice, the feeling of the rough hand against his, different than when Collin just grabbed at his hand and tugged him through portals. This was more gentle, and Shin sighed, turning his face away from the side the doctor was on and closing his eyes. He didn’t have to watch. He didn’t have to deal with it all alone anymore. He trusted that Collin would take care of him, that he would watch over him until the doctor was finished, and wouldn’t let them do anything to him other than help him. His fingers tightened against the thicker ones and he let out a slow breath, letting himself relax. His pulse steadied out to match Collin’s, the bond between them sturdy and comforting.

The arrow was finally dislodged from the shoulder and the wound stitched, looking a lot worse than it had with just the arrow. But now that the thing was out he could start healing. The doctor began working on the one imbedded in his chest and Shin only winced a few times, mostly keeping quiet as his body burned through the numbing agent. Like the tranqs, it just wasn’t the same with his metabolism as it was for a full human. To get the second one out they had to cut more carefully, going from two angles before they managed to dislodge it and free it from him. When it came loose the oni let out a little gasp, but it was more a relieved one than a pained one.

Collin knew Toby well enough by now to know that he was probably fretting his ass off. The other did have a tendency to coddle, which had initially given Collin mixed feelings but now he liked it. Even before the change, Toby had been one to dote and baby when it came to illness or injury, it had only gotten all the more pronounced after. Collin had adjusted, he didn't mind when it was him being fussed over anymore, he did the same thing for Toby now. Apparently for Shin too. He wanted to tell Shin that he wasn't going to Polly's that it was ridiculous to even consider, but it really wasn't his place. He was just worried, he wanted to keep Shin close for a while until the other was fully healed and he felt a little less concerned over this whole thing. Shin could make his own choices though, and though Collin wouldn't be happy if he chose to go to Polly's still, he wouldn't say anything about it.


Though he'd been the one to do it, Collin didn't really notice that he'd laced fingers with Shin until the other blinked over at him. It didn't make him withdraw though, he didn't feel strangely for it oddly enough. Collin only smoothed a thumb over the other's, offering him the smallest twitch of a smile. He wasn't going anywhere, not even over to Ava who was looming in the background. When his phone chimed again, he dug out his phone with his free hand and read the text Toby sent him but he didn't answer. Shin hadn't responded to him, Collin wasn't certain if he was dead set on going to Polly's still or not. After tucking the phone away, Collin let his other hand move to cover their entwined ones, gaze moving from between Shin's features and what the doctor was working on. It had to hurt, what he felt was only a reflection he knew, and it still sucked. The numbing agent was probably not as effective as it could be, he realized, that was something he'd have to keep in mind in the future. Hopefully he'd never need to use that knowledge though.


Ava vanished for a bit but came back around when they were starting to put the bandages on, smearing that same salve from before all over the wounds. She was still lingering beyond the curtains, waiting for Collin to come and talk to her. Anything that happened with the half-demon was of concern to her and she needed to be in the loop. When Collin finally did release Shin's hand, it was only to catch the attention of one of the nurses as she was finishing up, asking her to draw some blood from him for Shin. He knew it had made the other feel better in the past, he figured it might aid in the healing, or at least make Shin feel a little better. She gave him a strange look at first but complied, pulling out a syringe full and just offering it back to him. Collin twisted off the needle and offered it over to Shin. “I'm going to talk to Ava, I'll be right back.” He said, patting at Shin's hand before moving off.


The overlapping of their minds was something he was getting more and more accustomed to, and he wasn't concerned about Shin consuming the blood. Collin dabbed the needle mark with a cotton ball as he followed after Ava, letting her lead them a few paces away from where Shin laid on the gurney. He filled her in on the details of what had happened, and they came to the mutual agreement that this was likely the work of one of Raiju's covens. Ava thought it best if they both tread carefully, there was no telling how many more might come for the half-demon. Shin played a very important role, and Raiju's followers were likely to be desperate to be rid of him. She moved off after a few moments, taking away a few new details about the bond with her, finding it interesting that Collin could use it to move to Shin just as Shin could to Collin.


When he returned to the other's side, his brows were pinched, concern still scrawled over his features. “Why don't you just come home?” Collin asked, his tone all but pleading. “I know you were wanting to go out, but maybe it would be better if you were fully healed up before you go out again...” He suggested, giving Shin's forearm a light squeeze. “It'd be good to get some rest, let your wounds heal up. Besides, you'll be denying Toby his coddling. He loves to coddle.” Collin tried, grinning fondly as he spoke about the smaller witch.

Shin really didn’t want this to be the start of his freedom being restricted. Not because of Collin being scared of what he might do, but now because Collin was afraid of what other’s might do to him. The thought of being all cooped up all the time, having to give up his ability to roam about, work? No, Shin couldn’t deal with that, and he was trying to assert that by insisting on going to Polly’s still. She would probably be upset with him too, though, if she saw what had happened. It was a dilemma he was quietly pondering even as Collin had taken their joined hands in his other one. Collin wanted him to go home, he knew he should probably do what Collin wanted him to… Also, the second arrow had hurt a lot more coming out than the one in his shoulder, and that kinda sucked.

As they stitched him up he pressed his lips together, wrinkling his nose a little at the tug of threads. They almost didn’t have to bother, but, maybe it would keep the bleeding to a minimum. When his hand was released Shin looked to Collin again as the nurse came out with a needle and drew a syringe full of blood for him. It sent a sudden craving through him, eyes flashing as he stared. It didn’t matter if anyone there saw him...they all knew at this point about Agent Novack’s pet half-demon. He was eager for the sensation of it, the relief of the blood, even if he wasn’t even that hungry yet. If Collin was offering it, though, he was not going to decline. He took it when it was offered to him, nodding to the information that Collin was going to talk to Ava. He smiled and thanked him, waiting until the other had left the curtained area before bringing the vial to his lips.

Collin was only a few yards away when the rolling strangeness hit Shin. He took a breath and dropped his head back to the flat little pillow on the gurney he was still laying on. The sensation of overlapping the other was just as intense as ever, not fading or anything despite what Collin had initially hoped. It would only get more so, like the reverse of a drug, where one needed progressively larger hits to get that same high as the first time. This instead became fractionally more powerful each time, weaving their bond tighter. Shin embraced it, warm with the feeling that had settled in him since he’d understood that Collin had come to save him even though he had not had to. The oni took the chance to show the blond that feeling, filling him with it and showing him his gratitude. He didn’t think he was being intrusive or rude. Those things didn’t apply in moments like this, when they were closer than two people should ever be able to get.

The blood wouldn’t miraculously heal up the wounds on his chest. He wasn’t burning up energy to heal them like he had done for Collin. It wasn’t dire, Shin wasn’t dying or anything. They would heal up entirely in a couple of days, and soon there would not even be a faint scar to tell where they had been. It already felt so much better to have the arrows out. The healing would be far less hurtful, and Shin was already all set to ignore the bandages across his chest and binding the shoulder. As the initial rush of the blood settled into the softer connection that would last a few hours before returning to normal, Shin shifted awkwardly on the bed. He managed to work his cell phone out of his pocket, lifting it to unlock it and tap out a text to Polly.


By the time Collin returned from talking to Ava Shin was lying on the bed, phone resting on his bare stomach. Dark eyes turned to the blond as he asked him to please come home. Instead of insisting on going out, though, Shin let a grin spread across his lips. “Okay.” he replied, then managed to push himself up, shifting his long skinny legs over the side and swinging them a bit before hopping off the gurney. He held his phone up, lifting his brows. “I told Polly to come, instead.” he said lightly, happy to have come up with a solution that would meet Collin’s desire to have him home and his own desire to see Polly. “Can we leave?” he asked, ready to walk out just as he was
