Summary: A mirror gives Shin-ah a new kind of sight, showing him the one thing usually hidden from him. He has a chance to see his own eyes, and to see them the way Yona sees them — but exploring the possibility means dealing with the mirror’s owner.
As Shin-ah stared at the mirror, little Ao climbed up his arm until she reached it and gave an excited “P’kyuu!” at the image of a second squirrel. [... S]he leaped into Shin-ah’s robe, retrieved a nut, and scampered over to make a friendly gift to the other squirrel. The two of them knocked their matching nuts together with a tiny tik, tik sound. Ao finally dropped her nut to make room — and the other nut vanished too.
As Ao blinked at the other squirrel, Shin-ah noticed that the other Shin-ah’s mouth had moved.
‘Let me see your smiling face, okay?’ He remembered Yona’s voice. ‘Lift the edges of your mouth and perk up a smile. I’m sure it will be lovely.’
As he looked at it directly and tried to catch it, it slipped away, but for a moment, the edges of his mouth had lifted up all on their own.
Yay, more AkaYona fic! Now I need to turn to that WIP Big Bang story, I need a draft within a month...
