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

Kairo knew taking Ethan home and leaving him alone was not a good idea in any form or shape, but he also didn't want Ethan to feel as if he was obligated to stay here. The last thing he wanted was to force Ethan to do anything under such stressful situations. He watched as the boy nervously stepped out of the car and let him respond before beginning to walk towards his apartment. He kept a watchful eye on him, glancing over his shoulder every chance he got to make sure he was still following. Eventually, they made it to Kairo's door, which was opened with a swift turn of the key to reveal a small yet cozy space with a small kitchen, bathroom, living room and even a bed for the nights Kairo worked late and had to spend the night. He let Ethan step inside before shutting the door and turning on the lights.

The room was quickly illuminated as Kairo turned on his heels to face Ethan. A slight frown took over Kairo's lips, his eyes falling to the ground before moving back up. Half of him wanted to engulf Ethan in a tight hug, as a way of reassuring him that Kai was here for anything he needed. But he also knew Ethan was only just getting used to physical contact from strangers. Granted, Kairo wasn't a stranger at this point, but he still wasn't sure if Ethan considered him a friend. There was a few seconds of hesitation before Kairo decided to take a leap of faith. He moved a single step forward, wrapping both arms around the younger boy and gently resting his chin on top of the other's head. He embrace was warm and comforting, but light enough to allow Ethan to break free in case he began to feel uncomfortable. "I'm sorry..." he finally spoke, letting out a short breath. "I'm sorry you had to deal with that..." there wasn't much he could do now, what was done was done, but he felt the need to apologize endlessly because he knew Lucy never would.
