Kyon froze. Who was it this time? Asakura? Koizumi? Slowly he turned around, already prepared for what was going to happen.
"Hello there!" Koizumi said smiling away. Kyon glared at him, promptly turned around, and began to walk away.
"H-hey! Kyon, wait!" Kyon only smirked in amusement that he had managed to fluster Koizumi, at least once. But right now, all he wanted to do was go home.
Unfortunately he wasn't able to walk much further. Yuki stepped in front of him and just stood there, unmoving. Kyon sighed and shook his head, then sat at the nearest bench.
He was instantly joined by Koizumi who leaned in close to tell him something, only to have Kyon's hand in his face shoving him away.
"Personal space please." Kyon grumbled. "Alright, what is it this time? Haruhi creating more Closed Space? Another 'endless recursion of time'? A freak syndrome that causes one's best friends to become paranoid and murder each other or claw their own throats out?"
Koizumi looked at him strangely then laughed. "No, nothing like any of that, though I've never heard of a syndrome like that before. Where did-"
"Never mind that." Kyon said, rubbing his forehead. He heard footsteps and looked up to see Mikuru smiling at him before sitting down on his other side. Yuki, with nowhere else to sit simply sat on Kyon's lap, making him stammer.
"Actually, I wanted to talk to you about Miss Suzumiya's older brother. I find it strange that the Organization never knew she had one. Perhaps you-?"
Kyon sighed. "No, she never once mentioned anything about having an older brother to me. Is that all? I want to go home."
"There is one more thing I want to talk about. Actually, it's something we all want to talk about with you." Kyon sighed. It was never this simple. "Alright, what is it now?"
"Do you remember Akira's story about how Miss Suzumiya fell ill during Tanabata?" Kyon glared at Koizumi. "Of course I do! What about it?"
"Well, as we all know, you traveled back to Tanabata, five years ago. Akira had said that Miss Suzumiya later got better. Thing that bothers me is, Miss Suzumiya obtained her Powers five years ago on Tanabata. She had also told us beforehand that she hadn't seen him in years."
"On the night of Tanabata. The night Miss Suzumiya obtained her Powers. The night her brother left."
Kyon blinked, surprised. Yuki had moved off of him during the time Koizumi had gotten up and started pacing while talking and had sat in his spot. Mikuru sat to his other side, staring in surprise.
"Are you saying that there's a connection?" Kyon demanded standing up suddenly. Koizumi only shrugged. "No, I'm not. There might be one, but for now I can't say anything for certain. I wonder if Akira knows about Miss Suzumiya's Powers though..."
"I doubt it. What do you think of this Nagato?" Yuki blinked once. "Alright, I thought so. Miss Asahina?" Mikuru started, not quite paying attention. "That's Classified!" Kyon sighed. "Yeah, I thought you might say that too."
"Well, I'm going home."
Later that night, Kyon lay on his bed, wide awake, something bothering him. He was feeling very melancholic lately, as well as not being overly surprised by anything anymore. Not even when Asakura had returned, appeared in front of him, and held the knife against his cheek.
Guess I'm just finally getting used to everything. That or I just don't care anymore.
No, I don't think that's quite the reason.
Kyon blinked in surprise. So much for him being used to everything. He sat up and looked out his window, at his reflection.
Yeah, I don't think you "just don't care anymore" about all this. Otherwise you would've stayed back in that world that Nagato made for you, as you very well remember.
Kyon sighed. "You again." He said plainly laying back on his bed.
Ignore me all you want, you still know something else is going down. Haruhi's older brother, who coincidentally has never been heard of before not even by the Organization, suddenly appears out of nowhere, Koizumi's revelation, your startling discovery of Haruhi's reasoning behind everything she does, it's all happening for a reason.
So what do you think, that Haruhi wished for an older brother and created Akira?
No, you'd know if that happened. What I think is something big is going to happen real soon. And you need to get ready for it.
Sigh, why are you even back here?
Besides being you, it's because someone has to smack some sense into you. You decided on December of two years ago that you would stop being a simple bystander and would be a full fledged member of the SOS Brigade. And yet here you are, act strange lately and not thinking properly.
Fine fine, I get it! It's because Haruhi's Melancholy rubbed off on me alright? I'm just glad things are normal once again, even with Haruhi's older brother suddenly appearing.
The voice was silent after that and when Kyon checked the window reflection, he only saw his own tired face. He yawned then laid back down once again on his bed and fell asleep.
For a while, all was silent and unmoving. Then a figure stepped out from behind some bushes near Kyon's house and gazed up at his window.
Author's Notes: Here you go, chapter five. I'm finding less and less to talk about in these with this fanfic lol. Please R&R and share it with your friends and fellow Haruhi fans!
