Shouyou wonders what the people watching him go by would think if they knew. You see that one guy, Japan’s top scorer? I once played a game against him and won. You see the one making his Olympic debut before he’s even turned twenty? After matches, we would walk home together. He doesn’t like to hold hands but he likes to pull you close. We’d walk with our arms linked close and stars dotting the sky. It always smelled of cherry trees.
Kageyama must be on top of the world, right now. Shouyou isn’t there with him.
It feels bittersweet, in a way. He’s not there, but he will be. Just because he took a detour doesn’t mean he’s stopped running; he might be taking the long way home, but he’ll get there when the time is right. He made a promise, after all.
He sends Kageyama a text. I saw you today. You were amazing.
Then he races.
