Chapter Text

Mikey woke up in the middle of the night panting and sweating a lot. He had that dream again with the people who were dear to him that he lost. Mikey turned to the side of the bed and saw Takemichi, who was sleeping away. He was glad Takemichi was still here with him.

“I don’t want to lose you too.” He touched the young man’s face. The touch was soft and gentle, just like Takemichi is.

Mikey knew he couldn’t go back to bed, so he got out of bed. He made his way to the kitchen. Mikey grabbed a glass of cold water. He needed it after that nightmare.

“Boss, are you okay?” It was Kokoine that spoke out to him.

It wasn’t surprising seeing the other man since he sleeps late because of the tasks he does. Koko even does things that he never asked him to do.

“It’s nothing.”

Mikey never understood why this man joined him. He was brilliant and helped a lot, but he was loyal to Takemichi at one point. It’s not like he isn’t still since Koko was happy to see his former captain again. Koko changed a lot to his appearance to avoid dealing with Inui, his former friend.

“What were you doing?” Mikey asked.

“The black market has been going out of control, so I’m dealing with them.”

“Oh, that.”

Mikey didn’t like dealing with that, so he asked the others to deal with it. In the end, Koko took control of it.

“Are you rerunning rampage?”

“Yes, but don’t worry, boss, I have it under control.”

Koko was clever, so Mikey didn’t need to worry about it.

Mikey went back to his room after that little chat with Koko.

Takemichi was still there, sleeping, looking comfortable. The young man was like this now, but he knew that Takemichi would act up again, going against him. Who was he kidding when he thought that Takemichi would listen to him. The guy was always doing things unexpected like that time with the Black dragons.

“He won’t obey me.”

Mikey got in the bed and pulled Takemichi toward him. He held the younger male in his arms. It was nice hugging him like this. It made Mikey safe like he was years ago. Mikey shook his head suddenly. Why did he think of his time with Toman when Mikey did whatever he wanted here in Bonten.

“It’s okay. There is no way Takemichi can go back to the past.”

Mikey’s mind was going round in circles.

He had Takemichi with him and led the most feared gang in Tokyo, so why did he feel something wasn’t right.

Later that morning, Mikey had to deal with more annoying people. Takemichi hadn’t woken up yet, so he let the younger sleep. He had to bring all the Bonten members with him this time since it was an important meeting.

He told the guards to watch the place while they were gone. Mikey felt fear leaving Takemichi on his own.

Mikey kissed Takemichi’s forehead like he always did and left the other members. When the door was heard, and motorbike sounds were being droved away, Takemichi opened his eyes.

“This is my only chance.”

A maid knocked on the door like she did every morning. Takemichi took this chance and hit the maid, so she passed out. He searched and found that she had a mobile on her.

“I can contact Chifuyu and the others now.”

Takemichi looked out the window and saw the guards.

“It will be hard to do this on my own. I need to ask for help.”

The moment Takemichi dialled the number, his best friend had picked up right away.

“Who is this?” It was nice to hear Chifuyu’s voice again.

“Chifuyu, I need your help.”

“T-Takemichi!” The other was surprised hearing Takemichi’s voice.

“Mikey and the bonten members aren’t here, but I need help leaving here on my own.”

“Tell me where you are?”

It wasn’t hard to tell since Takemichi had been here for more than a week, so he knew where he was.

Takemichi told him the details about his whereabouts.

“So it used to be an abandon mansion,” Chifuyu said. “That’s why we couldn’t find it.”

“You have to hurry, Chifuyu. Mikey and the others have gone out, but I don’t know when they will be back.”

“Don’t worry. The prince will come to rescue the princess.”

“Stop joking around.” That made Takemichi embarrassed.

Takemichi waited, and after 20 minutes, he heard the door to his room open. Takemichi was surprised to see Chifuyu and the others we were looking for him.

“Takemichi.” Chifuyu ran toward him and looked up and down to see if he was okay.

“What did you guys do?” Takemichi had a bad feeling.

“Takemichi, aren’t you supposed to be happy to see us.” Mitsuya had his crossed arms. He was angry. I can’t blame the guy since he went off with Mikey like that.

“We should hurry.” It was Draken’s turn to speak.

When they got out of the building, Takemichi saw bodies of the guards on the floor, beat up.

This reminded Takemichi of the time Draken had beaten all the members.

“Did you do this?” He asked, turning to the bigger and older man.

“Who else but him?” Chifuyu answered.

They were finally out there, and Takemichi felt free.




“Chifuyu, why do I have to dress like this?”

“It’s because that psycho Mikey might find you.”

“But we are inside your place.”

“You just like dressing him like that.” Mitsuya chuckled.

“You’re the one who got him the clothes.” Chifuyu counter back.

“We have to stop, Mikey,” Draken said.

“He’s right.” Mitsuya agreed, being so severe suddenly.

“You were right that Mikey changed.” Takemichi couldn’t deny it anymore.

“Did Mikey do anything to you?” Draken asked.

There were many things, but Takemichi didn’t want to say, especially branding him with that mark on his back.

“Nothing.” He lied.

Draken watched him as the man could see him, but the man said nothing.

“He’s gone too far.” Angry said. “We have to stop him.”

“Do you remember how well that went?” Pah chin said, remembering the fight they had and Mikey beating them up. They couldn’t win against him.

“But we have to do something,” Hakkai said.

“We need to stop Mikey-kun,” Takemichi said.

The room was silent for a bit after most of the former members left Chifuyu’s home. It was only Draken, and Chifuyu and Takemichi went.

“I need to go back to the past and change things.”

“How are you going to do that?” Chifuyu asked. “Mikey doesn’t want help.”

“Takemichi.” Draken got up from where he was sitting. “I’ve ignored Mikey since that day he changed. I want to save him, and I know you, and everybody else in Toman does. But I miss how happy we all were in Toman.


“So save him before he changed and formed Bonten.” Draken held out his hand.

“I will.” Takemichi was determined. He took Draken’s hand, and then a flash of electricity appeared.

“Hey, Partner.”

“Chifuyu!” Takemichi was surprised.

“Are the future Takemichi?” He asked since Takemichi looked surprised.

“Some things happened.”

Takemichi explained to Chifuyu what happened, and then his best explained the events were happening now.

“So Toman was just disbanded.”

I have time before the conflict with the others happens.”

“Where is Mikey-kun?”

“He may be near the beach. He has been going there often.”


Takemichi felt a little nervous going to meet Mikey since the one in the future is scary for what he has done to him. But he knew this Mikey was not the future one well, not yet, and he will stop that from happening.

Takemichi arrived at the beach, and there he saw the leader of Toman. Mikey was sitting there relaxing.

“Mikey-kun.” The blond turned around to faced Takemichi. “There you are.”

Mikey got up from where he was sitting and walked to Takemichi. It had been a while since Takemichi came looking for him.

“I’m glad you're doing okay.” He smiled.

“Wait, are you?” Mikey could already tell this Takemichi was different, like the one from the future.

“It’s me from the future.” He smiled.

“Why are you back here?” Mikey asked, confused by why the future Takemichi came.

“Things happened,” Takemichi said.  

It was nice to have this Takemichi, but something was bugging him.

“Mikey-kun, if something is bothering you. You can talk to me about it.”

“What are you talking about?” Something clicked in Mikey’s head. “Is the future not good?”

“It’s good.” He smiled.

Mikey could tell the young man wasn’t telling the truth.

Mikey didn’t say anything as long as the future Takemichi could stay for a bit longer.

The wind was picking up, and Mikey noticed that Takemichi wasn’t wearing a jacket. He took his off and put it over Takemichi.

“Mikey-kun, aren’t you cold?”

“I’m tougher, so the cold doesn’t bother me.” He grinned. “By the way, how did you find me here?”

“Chifuyu told me that you often go to the beach.”

“He sure is a know it.”

It was starting to get late and colder.

“We should head home now.”

“That’s right, and I shouldn’t get your home too late.”

“What are you saying? You’re going drop me home.”

“Yea. Since I’m sure, you didn’t bring your bike.”

“Yea, I came by bus.”

Mikey took Takemichi’s hand, and the future Mikey and this one overlap and Takemichi could feel the warmth from the past Mikey. It was gentle, and the tears came out suddenly.

“Takemitchy?” Mikey looked up at the younger, shocked.

“Sorry.” He cried.

Mikey was confused but didn’t say anything, but then he wiped the tears away.

“I see that crybaby will never change.” He smiled.

They got to where Mikey parked his motorbike. Mikey got on first, and then he let the other get on after.

Mikey would drop Takemichi off home but decided maybe it was better if they went to his place since Takemichi wouldn’t stop crying.

The dojo was the same as Takemichi remembers.

“Grandpa is probably sleeping by now.”

“Doesn’t he say anything? Like when you formed Toman and stuff.”

“He used to get mad about it. It started with my brother, and then I did the same thing. After some time, he stopped caring. I know he worries.”


“Anyway, let’s eat something. I’m sure your hungry.”

On the kitchen table, there was food already made, probably from the old man.

“There’ enough for us both.” He smiled.

They sat at the kitchen table and had the food that Mikey’s grandfather made.

“Have you seen anybody else since you came back?”

“Just Chifuyu. Then I came to look for you.”

“That makes me happy that you thought of me first.”

There was a sight blush on Takemichi’s face when Mikey said those words.

In the future, when Mikey is in Bonten, he tells him to love him. It’s not that he didn’t, but Takemichi didn’t want to love the person he had become.

After finishing eating, they went to Mikey’s room.

It felt nice having a sleepover like this. The shirt that Mikey gave Takemichi was a little oversized but still fit well.

Mikey couldn’t stop staring at him.

“Is something wrong?” Takemichi asked when he caught Mikey staring.

“Maybe you should wear more of my clothes often.” He mumbled.

“What did you say? I couldn’t hear you.” Takemichi asked.

“Oh, it’s nothing.” Mikey smiled.

Mikey was the first to fall asleep on the futon they were sharing. Takemichi turned to the side of where Mikey was. It was strange being here with the past Mikey when the future Mikey had locked him up.

“Mikey-kun.” He cried as he reached his hand and touched the older male’s face.

I will save you.”
