Being busy sounds like some bullshit excuse, but Tim doesn't even breech it. He
breech it. It's not like they're dating or anything, like either of them owe each other their time. They're friends, but they're living in a village that's pushing them to survive. Sometimes, they won't have time for each other. Sometimes, they might not see each other for a few days.
Tim's okay with that. Or, at the very least, he'll make himself okay with that. He doesn't know how he's supposed to feel about Kira's absence, but what he does know is that he's pleased Kira's returned at all.
Maybe one day he'll get tired of Tim's bullshit, but apparently, today isn't that day.
Veronica was gone. Someone Tim knew by face and name, even if he never spoke to her. A lot of people have up and disappeared lately. Who knows if they're being sucked back home, or if they're being swallowed by the woods, or even something much worse. It's shitty to dwell on, so Tim doesn't. He's a soldier — losing people isn't anything new to him.
"It's fine." He leans in, catching Kira's lips in a kiss, his own mouth still messy from the peach he'd bitten into. They won't talk about the emotional things, because they never do, and that's perfectly fine with Tim. But
is something they're good at.
