In Which Nothing Is Resolved

Also known as, "Who says I'm crying? Because I'm not. Just so you know" and "The superheroes are alone".

In the last episode of this series, we saw that West was about to leave the Winter Palace. Will East stop the other? Will they talk to each other? Let’s see, shall we?

West eventually reaches the closed door. The Superhero stands right in front of it, hand on the doorknob, ready to turn it to open the door. But West hesitates and just stands there for a moment, as if waiting for something.

East’s eyes are still focused on the back of West, watching intently at what the other is doing. But East says nothing, biting those lips as if to refrain from speaking or, perhaps, it’s because the Superhero wishes to speak, but refuses to do so.

West waits for a moment longer before sighing inaudibly then finally opening the door. The Superhero steps outside and hesitates, seeming to get the urge to look back, to say something, but West does neither of those things.

West just steps outside the room, closes the door then starts walking away. The western Superhero swipes at those blue eyes that seemed to be glistening. Inside the room, East leans against the wall, looking up at the ceiling with eyes that also appeared to be glazed.
