"You don't need someone to complete you, you only need someone to accept you."

Kairo watched Ethan's movements with both curiosity and compassion. To say that the therapist had developed a huge soft spot for his student would be a big understatement. Just watching the boy carry himself so much more casually and comfortably compared to the first day he came in made Kai want to smile. It may not have felt like big steps to Ethan, but Kai was certainly taking notice. The boy suggested listening to Frank Ocean first, and Kairo began to reach for his guitar, ready to follow along to whatever Ethan suggested, however, he was surprised yet again when Ethan volunteered to talk about his day. Kairo's brows lifted slightly, accompanied by an approving smile as he took a sip of his drink. "I'm all ears." he said, giving the boy a cue to continue.

"It was actually one of my uh better weeks. For the first time in a long time I felt like things were actually going my way." that statement alone brought a bright smile to Kairo's face as he immediately gave Ethan a playful thumbs up. Kairo knew that the way he treated and acted around his patients would be considered "unprofessional" by just about any other therapist out there, but he also knew that this was the most effective way of talking to them and getting them to oopen up to him that he could find. "That's amazing, Clark." he finally responded, leaning forward ever-so-slightly. "Seeing you walk in here with that cute smile of yours is officially the highlight of my day." he half teased, half stated. It wasn't a lie, by any means. His day had been far from great, but seeing Ethan so happy made his worries vanish.

However, that didn't last long at all. "Kairo, why aren't you answering your phone?" The therapist' gaze shot up at the speed of a bullet the moment he heard the familiar voice and the echo of the double doors opening and shutting closed again. "Lucy...why are you here?" taking one look at Ethan was enough to tell Kairo that his fiance's unexpected visit was already making him uncomfortable. "I'm in the middle of a session, you can't just barge in like that." he could feel the irritation bubbling in his stomach and in the back of his throat, but for Ethan's sake more than anything, he kept his movements subtle and his voice as steady as he possibly could. "We can talk about this later-"

"Oh no you don't, Kairo Choi, I'm your fiance for Christ's sake, you can't just ignore me." Kairo's lips pressed into a thin line to keep from yelling something he would later regret. He took in a breath of air, releasing it slowly, before attempting to respond. "I would never ignore you Lu...but this isn't the time or the place to talk about our personal lives. So...can you please leave?"
