summary: Ayumi fails a test... or does he? (Bloody Kisses Ficlet)
notes: for calicokitten17, her Bloody Kisses Ficlet. heh, she really likes to challenge me... ^_~ word of warning, i have no first hand knowledge of Spiral...

He could still hear the light tinkling of the piano. Even the pounding of his heart couldn't drown out the delicate play of notes. People thought he was gifted, but they had obviously never heard Eyes play...

...there was something else he was supposed to be thinking about, something else he should be doing, but he felt so weak, so tired, all of his strength just dripping down, like the stream of blood dripping down his back...

...eyes like blue ice, so deep and chilling, so sharp, and it was a test, he knew, because he should have known, should have known all along, and did his brother fail this test? Was that why he was never coming back...

...but he didn't care, because he did know, of course he knew, it was so very logical, and if he knew, than his brother had to have known, had to have seen it long before he did, picked up on some clue he never would have thought of...

...it was cold, and getting colder, the air on his naked skin not nearly as cold as the arms holding him in place, or the body pressed tight to his, like ice, he thought, always like ice, except when he was playing, when his fingers danced over the keys, and of course Ayumi had known, how could he not have, really, but he wanted to see beyond the ice, to see if there was anything beyond the ice, he wanted to be touched and held...

...if he froze here in Eyes' embrace, eternally, what difference would it make, as long as Eyes played him to sleep?
