“Don’t cry,” says the villain, thrusting a handkerchief at the sobbing hero “It’s unbecoming. And gross.”
The hero snorts a bunch of snot into the handkerchief. It’s one of those expensive cloth ones “I hope- hope you know I can’t give this back now.” xe sniffs “Because dna, and stuff.”
The villain frowns. Ze hadn’t thought of that. That would have been an excellent (if disgusting) way to figure out the heroes identity. Also fuck, zir handkerchief!
