Long Dream [4/7]
Series: Joker Game
Summary: Hatano wasn’t one to read shoujo manga, but there was something familiar about this mangaka named Kunio.
Notes: Modern AU/Reincarnation AU; Spin off to Déjà Vu (KamiMiyo); Hey hey hey, guess who’s here with an update~ Ah, I know before I said it wasn’t necessary to read Déjà Vu to understand this fic, but I didn’t realize at the time how much I’d be integrating that plot into this orz nonetheless, it’s still not necessary to read it, but perhaps giving it a read would give a better understanding! Just know that Miyoshi and Kaminaga are also going through some struggles at the same time as Jitsui and Hatano
Ch. 4 - Jitsui II: Patience is a Virtue
Just as Jitsui had thought, Hatano proved to be a capable ally. Not only was Hatano physically adept, but he was cunning and quite intelligent too. Together, they made up for each other’s weaknesses and used each other’s strengths to their advantage. Due to their skills, they’ve managed to garner some respect since the first day of training, though a few of the other trainees still looked down on them. But that was no matter since it was, for the most part, as planned.
What Jitsui didn’t plan on, however, was becoming too attached to Hatano.
