            maybe tomorrow?  when you’re awake and ready to go out for a bit?  i heard the sun set is supposed to be especially nice..  you like sunsets.  *  a small grin could come to the young one’s face , a soft rumbling soon following.  *

            *  xyunin listened closely,  grabbing onto his father's hand in a tight grip only to lean further into his palm with a sad whine spilling from deep inside of him.  it was impossible to behave as though he wasn't afraid, as if he were brave because in this moment..  he felt like crying and running for help.  yet despite not knowing how sorry they were to be seen this way,  there wasn't any trace of any negative emotion except for worry and fear for this parent, a feeling that bloomed so strongly because of his love for him.  *   .. what can i do?  father, what can i do to help you?  is there anyone that i can get..  please, tell me..  *  his voice grows more quiet as he spoke,  leaning carefully into caishen's chest and hesitating before a purr rumbled through his body.  he was trying everything he could,  ignoring the tears that continued to spill.  *

⋆  their heart twists like a vice at the sound of their son, entering, speaking.. yet it helps to clear their mind, even just by a little. erosion eats away at him day after day, devouring their sense of self with every moment that passes. but the presence of his son, his dearest son.. it barely takes a moment before they had cupped the little one’s cheek in a shaking hand. it pains them so, so much to see the child in distress, and now that he was the /cause/ this time around.. his expression only grows more sorrowful even through the burning feeling in their chest.  ⋆             .. it’s the physical manifestation of erosion,              ⋆  his voice is soft as he stares up at the ceiling.  ⋆            first it stemmed from that scar, then my memories began to fade.. i assumed i’d be able to regulate it. but — -              ⋆  they pause, hand drifting to the golden cracks, to the ginkgo leaves on one cheek. and the look he gives xyunin is so incredibly apologetic, so sad and melancholic.. he doesn’t think any words could express how sorry they were.  ⋆

            *  eyes couldn’t find one thing to focus on , almost too much to take in and his throat suddenly felt dry with the inability to move or speak.  nothing escaped him even as he began to walk in the direction of his father , the world moving so much slower with every step that almost made him feel like he was never going to reach his father in time even with him not being far away from his reach. *   father..  oh, father!  what’s wrong?  please feel no shame,  just tell me what’s wrong !  what’s all of this? * and the cub had never felt so useless before, doing the only thing he knew how to do.  reaching carefully for his father he helps push him down so he’s laying on his back,  tears dripping down onto the other that he hadn’t realized had started to bubble over.  *
