This is the last chapter in the Ben-to fan-fiction series I am writing. It might also become the longest as the mind has been set in a certain direction that can go many other ways. Hope you will stick with me during this time and enjoy the read.
Ben-To: The new Kingdom 1
The book release fight has ended with Satou hung in the ropes with a print of a shoe, fiery red across his face. Eyes gloom and lifeless he can’t witness the hall being thrown topsy-turvy. Shaga stood still with her glasses on the tip of her nose and an open mouth. As things had happened so fast. It was Sen who closed her mouth and nodded at the defeated men right before she turned around and walked away behind the curtains.
Oshiroi stood on the stage with hand clasped together in a prayer. Her lips moved but without a mic close to her nobody would hear her.It was Shiraume who had her sit back in her chair. Opened the bento and broke the two sticks apart. With great ease slipped scooped up a good bit and with a hand below to catch falling grains of rice she fed Oshiroi as if nothing had happened.
The curtains closed and the crowd saw Satou get carried away by the other men. Behind Oshiroi was told it was the best book release they had ever done and were looking forward to the sequel.
It took Satou some time to gain consciousness.
Soon as he opened his eyes he blinked a couple of times to regain the vision of the face he was staring at. Quickly after he found his head resting on Sen’s lap his cheeks turned red like a boiling lobster. His body swung into motion and stood up next to the bench he laid on. Covered in some bandages the towel slipped slowly from his waist and fell to the floor.
Embarrassed he fell to his knees only to see Sen show no reaction at all. With swift precision he gathers his clothes that were folded on a chair. “What happened, it went so fast? Never mind he was there again. Why do I keep seeing him?”
The door swings open and has Shaga rush in. In that split second cameras flashed repeatedly through the opening. Voices of reporters uncoordinated machine gunning questions into the room. To a man with his pants around a single ankle and the second lifted to follow.
“Shaga Close the door, for crying out loud.”
Her hands push the door back into its lock. “So you want just the two of us Satou? You have grown up so much, Think you can handle us?”
“Let us get home I need to find out who that man is.”
“Satou who did you see.” Sen inquires. “Are you going mad.”
Shaga Laughs and rubs her hand across Satou’s head. “Maybe he got hit to many times? Anyways we should get to a hotel since it has gotten a bit late.”
With a big sigh, Satou takes a seat. “Maybe I am going crazy, but I know what I saw and this time I saw a medal of some sort. It has got to mean something.”
His fingers dig into the pants. Teeth grind as he tries to keep his composure.
His senpai gets up and walks over to the door, “Lets go, we figure it out somehow, for now lets go eat, there is a super two block from here.”
