Mono is RM's older, wiser brother that has been through everything RM is going through right now, thus, he understands that all the anger comes from fear and hurt. Mono is merciful and kind and he wishes for his brother to reach the point he is at now, he hopes that RM will find peace someday. Mono knows that it's not easy and that RM is trying hard, so he tells him to take his time with healing and that he'll be there with him. One day, when things get especially rough, RM breaks. He screams and cries, says things he doesn't really mean, knows that they hurt Mono but he can't stop. He thinks that the only way to survive the pain is by turning it into venom and spitting it out on the people around him. Mono listens quietly. Even now, his eyes are kind and understanding. Mono hugs his brother, doesn't let him go, even when the younger starts hitting and scratching him, a bestial growl echoing through the night, telling of all the sadness locked up in RM's tormented soul. Mono keeps RM close to his chest, hugs him even tighter when the younger finally gives in to his brother's touch, lets himself get lost in the warmth of the embrace. They stand there, under the night sky. The full moon is reflecting in RM's eyes when he clings to Mono, hot rivers flowing over his cold cheeks, his body shaking like a broken puppet. Still, Mono smiles and pulls the boy closer, humming soft melodies in his ear. "Moonchild," he whispers.
More tears fill RM's eyes at the sound of the familiar childhood nickname. His grip on the fabric of Mono's jacket tightens, as if he's scared to let go. "Don't cry...," the older chuckles huskily, a hint of sadness in his voice. He runs his fingers through the younger's hair, as he did when they were younger and things were easier for the both of them. "You can shine, moonchild. You just aren't ready yet.. When your moon rises...then it's your time. Hold on, yea? You'll learn how to dance in the rain."
