So the lantern in your heart won’t fade
MP100 Valentines Week
Day 6; Comfort
The park is empty in the rain, lamps looming eerily through the stormy-dark evening, and Teruki’s sneakers slap across wet sidewalks as he runs towards an out-of-the-way park bench tucked into the quietest corner.
It’s one thing to get a call from Reigen – the man’s mild tone and manner of speech as he asked “Have you heard from Mob today?” made it impossible for Teruki to determine if something was wrong. Ritsu’s name on his Caller I.D. within the hour, on the other hand, was enough to light little fires of worry in Teruki’s brain before he could so much as answer the phone.
“Is my brother there? He’s been acting strange since he came home from work last night, and the school just called and said he didn’t show up for class today. He doesn’t have his phone, and I can’t – my powers are still just – I can’t find him. Is he there with you?”
Teruki was out the door not even a minute later, with barely the presence of mind to grab a coat.
