In the middle of a large road surrounded by countless colorful containers, a masked man was caressing the hair of a crying girl in his arms. He seemed as though he was desperately trying to make her feel better, but it looks like he doesn’t know what to do.
Zaki who was currently the master of reading Sei’s body language was the most animated deep within. He was sure Sei is currently being too anxious and it was cracking him up simply because this was the first time Sei ever acted like this. As though he was a father anxious to death on figuring out how to make his dearest baby stop from crying.
Well, he was doing good, considering the fact that this is his first time doing so. Embracing her and caressing her like that was the perfect move a man should do. However, to Zaki who was watching Sei since they were young, it was surreal to see him showing such sympathy to anyone. He remembered that the last time Sei embraced anyone was back when they were ten.
Zaki was smiling as he looked at the two of them, however he knows it’s still too early to celebrate. He knows that after all, things weren’t that easy. And It never will.
After some moment, Davi finally calmed down and started letting go of Sei. She wipes her tears and looked at him.
"You came to rescue me, right?" she asked but the man seemed frozen and without a word, he just nodded. Davi somehow felt there’s something different with him at the moment. But thinking, he was just worried, she decided to show him she’s fine. She smiled brightly and talked to him again. "Well, I’m so nervous, I thought no one will come to help me. But then, you suddenly appeared. Thank you."
Her words were sweet and sincere.
However, the masked man was again silent and the next thing he did almost made Davi’s heart stopped. His long fingers suddenly wiped the remaining traces of tears in her face, gently as ever. And she didn’t know why but, the way he touched her face almost felt as though he was saying a really sincere and sad apology through it, as if he was the one who made her cry. The feeling, his gesture was just a bit extreme that it almost made Davi’s heart twisted as she looked at him. She wasn’t sure if it was just her imagination, she wasn’t sure if she’s just thinking too much however, she just couldn’t stop herself from feeling that he was blaming himself.
So she touched his hand which was on her face as she smiled brightly at him.
"I-I’m really fine, I think I’m just a bit too happy that you came, that’s why. Haha." Davi’s words wasn’t a lie. The reason why she cried wasn’t because she was scared, it was because Sei really came and saved her. She couldn’t believe he really appeared and it caused her to tear up.
Thankfully, after a few seconds of silence, the man finally talked.
"No you’re not," he said. Making Davi speechless for some moments. "You’re not fine at all," he repeated as he squatted in front of her. He touched her foot then looked up.
"Lift." He ordered and Davi could only do as he says.
The moment she lifted her foot, Davi’s instinct made her unconsciously crossed her hands and hugged herself. It was because, Sei’s aura blazed with a seemingly intense anger the moment he saw how awful the bleedings in her feet.
