Will never be replaced

Hunter/Luz Sibling Hurt Comfort

cutting yourself!”

“I’m fine!” Hunter spat, rolling his eyes as he looked down at his little sister, who looked up at him with a concerned look. Luz then stood up, sitting down on his bed right beside him immediately after.

“Hunter, please. I want to help you, I care about you so, so much. But I can’t help if I don’t know what’s wrong,” she uttered sadly, looking at him with empathetic eyes.

Hunter stared at her, frowning, before averting his gaze down towards the floor.

Luz placed a hand on his shoulder as she then mumbled, “...Is it about Belos..?”
