Characters: Kyouraku Nanao
Sometimes, when he saw his sweet Nanao-chan sitting at her desk, eyes intent, working over a report, Shunsui would close his eyes.
Nanao-chan was herself, no other.
When she pushed up her glasses, girding herself for battle with bureaucracies or to order the other Seats to prepare for an attack, he would remember. The flash of light obscuring her eyes, the set to her shoulders, and that steady voice all mirrored a memory he held close to his heart.
There were no regrets. He had to give them the room to grow stronger.
And yet... he made time for reflection.
