Kunzite catches a glimpse of Mercury, her usual pleasure at joining him in battle dulled and dimmed by something that makes her smirking mouth a flat line instead and changes her dancing eyes to something he imagines is reproachful. She knows he will not forsake vengeance, no matter the cost. And he catches sight of Nephrite, eyes so wide and yet so blind but Kunzite knows what the witch has in store.

He cannot hesitate. There is no space for calculation, no time to reckon the costs and benefits to himself. There is only his heart.
He could spit.
