NOT TO BE ANNOYING ABOUT BLACKMADHI AGAIN BUT U KNO THE REINCARNATED LOVERS TROPE YEAH YE A H YOU KNO WHAT IM GETTING AT, lovers in some sort of previous timeline where simon and nahyuta were inseparable and deeply in love, despite them being the embodiment of night and day where they were the complete opposite of each other and had some barrier that didn't want them together. they sought after the other's warmth and nothing else could compare to how the other makes them feel whole and complete - they made up for each other's strengths and weaknesses
even though in the next life they have no idea who they were, nahyuta with their godly nahyuta-ness, still has these traces of feelings, and upon seeing simon, "huh. this man is.. so familiar to me, but i just cant figure it out", not familiar like "ive probably seen this guy at the grocery store yesterday or smth" but familiar as in "i've braided flowers into his hair, i've shared a warm bed with him, i've spent afternoons basking under the sun embracing this intimidating-looking man who really had a smile far more beautiful than any flower existing, but...i've never met him in my life???"
so does simon too!! not as much as nahyuta bc the only thing in his sleep-deprived mind during storyteller is soba, and he's still a little bit pissed off at how insufferable they are, but he thinks about when they first met to discuss the case, how the interaction felt so. natural. endearing in a way. simon's very open, and he really just doesn't care, if he wasn't maintaining his cold ex-convict persona, he really would be seen as friendly and approachable and they were getting along, their convos were very fun under the bickering. "but i dont know... why do i feel like. we've known each other a lot for years? ...taka do you know?"
