「 Kairo Choi ✧ 26 ✧ Location: Dance Studio ✧ Hex: #400E15 」
"You don't need someone to complete you, you only need someone to accept you."

It was the same argument all over again. Kairo had heard it many times from his mother and father, something he had worked hard to get through. What he hadn't expected was to hear it from his future wife. The person that was meant to support him, to love who he was and what he did. Her words of disapproval rang through his ears like a war cry, it made his insides turn in discomfort. "Lucy I don't want to talk about this anymore" his throat felt dry, his voice coming in raspy huffs. He leaned against the dance studio wall, eyes focused on the door across from him. Ethan could be walking in any minute. Kairo would be damned if he let him find him in this state.

"You never want to talk about it, Kairo! Can't you understand I'm trying to help you?" a heavy sigh escaped the dancer's lips, his eyes falling to the polished floor. "You know this job is not going to take you anywhere! Why are you so damn stubborn?" The knot in his throat grew heavier with every word that came out of his fiance's mouth. He remained silent, allowing her to carry on with her belittling words, nit-picking at every little fault she could find in regards to his career, just like his parents had done. Eventually she came to a halt, demanding to know if he had been listening. Which in all honesty, he hadn't. Not that she had said anything he hadn't heard before/ "Lucy, I'm really busy right now. Did you call me just to insult my job and my patients or do you actually have something important to say?" The other end of the phone line was silent for a moment, and Kairo took in a gulp of air, mildly surprised with his own response.

"Kai...I just want you to be successful because I love you"

"I have a session I need to get ready for. Goodbye Lucy." he could hear her protest coming through the speaker right before pushing the end button. The room fell silent, and Kairo's hands fell limply to his sides, an exasperated sigh leaving his body. The backs of his eyes had begun to burn, and the knot in his throat was still very much present. Had the situation been different, he would have cancelled all his appointments and spent the afternoon alone in the studio gathering his thoughts, but that wasn't an option right now. Ethan was seconds away from walking in. Not only was it too late to cancel, but he truly didn't want to. Ethan needed him...and quite frankly, he really needed Ethan right about now. Rather than a patient or student, the boy had become a friend...a good friend. AT least Kairo liked to think so. And Ethan seemed to be at a point where he trusted Kairo, even if just a little bit.

A loud huff echoed throughout the studio as Kairo pushed himself upright, taking a few long sips from his water bottle and setting it back in the fridge. [i]"Get it together Kairo..."[/i\ his eyes remained closed for a few seconds while he simply breathed at a steady, slow rhythm, and felt his muscles beginning to relax, opening his eyes again only when he heard the studio door being pushed open and shortly after, Ethan's face came into view. The dancer immediately smiled, pushing all of his personal problems to the back of his mind as if nothing had ever happened.
