Noticing and curiosity

It was an ordinary day in the echizen house hold Nanjiro was down stairs on the back porch reading his "newspaper" Rinko was making breakfast along with nanako and Ryoma was…well being Ryoma he was still asleep though not for long.

"Ring" "ring" "ring" "SMASH"

"Gah stupid alarm clock who set it" Ryoma grumbled


Ryoma reluctantly got up out of bed and began his normal routine. He got dressed and went downstairs for some breakfast.

"Ryoma honey" Rinko Ryomas mother said

Ryoma looked up from the grilled fish he was eating and said "yeah mom"

Rinko look at Ryoma took a deep breath and said "Ryoma honey um well you know what tomorrow is right" not waiting for an answer she continued "well sweet heart me and your father are going to head back to America tonight to you know go visit them "

Ryoma looked a little stunned but said "oh ok kaa san I- I understand excuse me I'm going to be late" and Ryoma left without another word. "do you think he's going to be ok Nanjiro" Rinko asked her husband "we'll know in time Rinko you forget he was there that day and he's strong he's our son after all" Nanjiro replied with a sad smile on his face "I guess your right dear I just hope your right" Rinko said and walked back to do the dishes.

Time skip at school during afternoon practice

"Nya oi ochibi" kikumaru said as he walks over to where Ryoma was changing

Ryoma raises his head from tying his shoes and said "hai sempai what's up"

"We were just wondering if you were ok" Fuji said as he joined the two

Ryoma cocked his head to the side in confusing "hai sempai I'm fine why"

Fuji just shook his head and waved his hands "oh no reason Ryoma we were just making sure but if something was wrong you know you could talk to us right"

Ryoma nodded his head "hai" he said uninterested

"Nya fujiko right ochibi you can come to us for anything" kikumaru yelled as he glomped the poor first year
