Kira's avoiding him.
, maybe Kira isn't avoiding him and he's just looking too far into this. That's probably it, because as far as he knows, nothing's happened that would make Kira avoid him. The last time they saw each other, everything was fine.
, even. They teased and taunted and fucked, parting ways how they normally do. Still, it's unusual for them to go this long without running into each other, and he
Kira hasn't suddenly disappeared because other people have seen him around, and--
Jesus Christ, this is why he doesn't make friends.
Tim's opted to ignore it. It's his favorite way of dealing with things, so for the past few days, he's continued about his business like thoughts of Kira aren't stewing in the back of his mind. He chops firewood and takes care of Kid, who he's been making sleep in the stables more and more often lately. He even makes trips into the woods to do some gathering. But it's later in the afternoon, and he's at home with all the windows open, rinsing some berries he'd collected that morning. He doesn't have to check to know who's at the door — with Cougar gone, Kira's the only one who knows where he lives.
Of course, he doesn't have to open the door for Kira to come in, either. He takes half a step out of the kitchen, eyeing Kira and the open door behind him, brows arched. "I've shot people for less," he points out.
