Kidnapped (Zero/Iris)It was a well-known fact in the Resistance base that Ciel was incredibly strong-willed. Despite her young age, she had bravely faced and overcome more challenges than most people would in their entire lives. That strong will came along with stubbornness, and Ciel would continuously push herself to the limit even though doing so was detrimental to her health.
This was why Iris currently had her hands full trying to keep Ciel in bed. The scientist had caught a bad case of stomach flu and was vomiting to the point where she couldn’t keep anything down, but she still insisted on trying to run her operation. It was a wonder Ciel could even move given how ill she was.
“Dr. Ciel, for the last time: You. Need. Rest,” said Iris.
“Can’t…rest…” Ciel moaned deliriously. “Got to--Urk!”
Iris grimaced as Ciel leaned over the bucket beside her bed and puked for the umpteenth time. There was almost nothing in her stomach left to expel,
The Hypocrite and the Jerk (Zero/Iris)One evening, as Iris enjoyed a small meal of E-crystals in her room, she heard a knock at her door.
“Come in,” she beckoned. The door opened, revealing the visitor. “Z-Zero? What are you doing here?”
“I wanted to talk to you,” Zero replied.
“Oh. Um, have a seat then.” Zero sat beside Iris on her bed. The female Reploid gave him a questioning look. “What did you want to talk to me about?”
“I want to know why you spend so much of your time working,” Zero responded.
“It’s not just me. Everyone’s been busier since you showed up, Zero.”
“That’s not what I meant and you know it. The only reason you’re not working now is because your energy levels dropped so low that you nearly shut down on the spot.”
Iris winced. “You found out about that, huh…?”

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
