He picked up . Kanade Otonashi thought as he discussed advice and feedback, I can do this. You never. Cursing and repeatedly calling him an idiot, Ayato had begrudgingly reclaimed his spot in the backseat once Yuri and Otonashi got Hinata to.

Ayato himself had to suppress a scoff. Hayato had been born four minutes before Ayato; it was one of the many things he prided himself on. Some big brothers didn't like their younger ones to forget it… but this Eichi had to be in his mid-to-late twenties. Was that what Hayato would have been like, even at that age?

He never thought he'd find himself sympathizing with Hinata like this; this week just kept on surprising him. Turning to his family, Hinata gestured to the group. They're old friends of mine. See, this was what Ayato had been saying all along — their situation was far too complicated to explain.

Or in this case, there was a very simple explanation that was also a little farfetched to outsiders. It wasn't like they could just say they'd met when they were dead. He couldn't believe he was saving the idiot from this potentially comedic train wreck, but an old memory had just come to mind. And it actually did include a baseball player with blue hair. Kanade and Otonashi were staring at him too, but their expressions were more curious than scrutinizing.

I swear, he could have knocked her out cold—" "Hey, wait a minute! Hideki, I thought that was when you almost hit Yui in the face for the second time!

Hinata's father raised both his eyebrows, looking amused but critical. But then that one girl was sitting in front of her and saved her again.

And need I remind you, that was the game I caught the—" "—winning pop fly," Ayato finished for him, a little dumbfounded at what was happening just now.

Ayato nodded in her direction. But then Yuri calmed me down about it. And we met up with Hinata sometime after the game. He, for one, considered seven years to be "some time. Bro, there are other ways to make friends than by hitting baseballs at them.

She turned to Ayato and company. I'm sorry my son's way of saying hello was hitting a baseball at your head, Yuri. Very nice name, by the way," she said with a wink. Hinata groaned in disgust. Eichi laughed at the face his brother made. The one near the pool and Shinjobou? A thinner, longer version than the previous. It has a curved-diamond shape on its tip.

She made this version thinner for higher speed. Hand Sonic [Version Three]: Is shaped like a traditional sai. She once remarked that this version is "inelegant". Hand Sonic [Version Four]: A variation which is shaped like a lotus flower with no edges other than, perhaps, its petals. Apparently more of a bludgeoning weapon than a slicing one. Kanade admits to have created it in her attempt to make her weapon "cuter".

It is basically a pair of pincers secured on the arm by a violet gauntlet-like accessory that resembles a demon's head, horns and shape. She created this version due to Otonashi's advice that she should give herself a more ruthless image. She also used this version as a makeshift slingshot and for dispatching the Shadows or hitting certain targets from afar.

Hand Sonic [Version Twenty-Eight]: This is Kanade's latest version of Hand Sonic. However, this variation is only known to have been used in the 3rd Drama CD. Otonashi and Hinata has stated that it excels in bringing pain and that one would merely know just by looking at it Distortion: Allows her to deflects bullets and other projectiles away using an invisible shield in front of her. The drawback of this skill is that she has to take it down should she want to switch from defense to offense.

This skill does not deflect physical attacks as she is show to dodge physical attacks Delay: Creates a sort of after-image for close range. It is effective in dodging melee attacks by confusing the enemy into attacking elsewhere. Makes a clone of herself which is identical to her, except it has blood-red eyes. Clones created through this ability have their own consciousness, as well as all the abilities of the original - including Harmonics itself.

The copy are forms of whatever she is feeling at the moment of their creation. A "hidden ability" which acts as the reverse of Harmonics. It allows the reintegration of clones created through Harmonics into her body. This, however, poses some risks as Harmonics clones also possess their own consciousness. This ability is connected to Harmonics using a command called timewait, which is simply a wait command which delays the execution of this ability.

This ability was created by Yuri as method of dealing with the Harmonics clones. A passive ability that gives her superhuman strength. Maybe Kanade hadn't seen the concert. Maybe she didn't have her memories back. Maybe she didn't even want to talk to him. So he didn't try. But Kanade sensed deep down that it was possible Otonashi had seen the concert too.

Call it a heart's instinct. She decided one day to wait for him at their spot — the 10Q LL Angel store where it had all started. It was between the hospital and the mapo tofu place where they used to go on dates.

When he started training and working at the hospital, it became his regular stop during lunch breaks. Wanting to be subtle, she found herself a hat and wore her hair differently. Then she leaned against the store in wait. As soon as she spotted him in the crowd, she began to hum "My Song. Sure enough, the soft tune tickled his memory and made him freeze. He hesitated, taking a moment to register the song, then turned around.

It was Kanade, and she was starting to walk away. He panicked, putting the pieces together and realizing Kanade had heard the concert.

She had been waiting for him. And now she was walking away like he had failed her test. Rushing after her, he reached out and grazed her shoulder just like before… "I felt so lucky to have her in my life again. He had known that joy, for about ten seconds in Noroi when she hurled herself out the door into her best friends' arms.

He'd thought he was going to know it again back at the bridge when she requested his hypnotism. But it would never be like that with them. We had a breakup of our own. Always some sort of interference," Otonashi continued in what Ayato bitterly but silently called his "wise doctor" tone. If his friend's goal was to establish common ground, that last part had dreadfully backfired. Otonashi reached over and touched his arm; when he looked back up from the contact, his friend's eyes were earnest.

Of course, why wouldn't he? A heart, an afterlife, and a song had brought the two of them together. Hinata and Yui had a baseball and a promise — a promise the song helped him make good on.

What did he and Yuri have? Bloody fingers, broken pottery, Kimito, a lightning bolt… literal magic working against them! Iwasawa's heartfelt ballad had resulted in three things — a proposal, a reconciliation, and a divorce.

One of these things was very plainly not like the others. Maybe love worked overtime on Otonashi and Kanade and very likely on Hinata and Yui. But if it had ever given a shit when it came to him and Yuri, it was for damn certain taking a lunch break.

Or it had quit altogether… or it had rushed back to its desk to rectify a horrible mistake. Because despite Otonashi's compelling story of a love lost and found, his and Kanade's romance was still just that. A well-crafted fairytale, with its own ups and downs, destined for a published happy ending they could read to kids.

And Ayato and Yuri's was pages upon pages of gibberish and mess that Fate had crafted while falling asleep face-down on the keyboard. But hey, Yuri had done a hell of a good job with the backspacing!

That Otonashi would even begin to make a comparison… it frustrated him to no end. Curious sympathy softened the crease on Otonashi's forehead. They stood up and left the park, walking in mostly silence after that. He offered to give him a ride to the train station, but Otonashi shook his head and pointed in the direction of his car. At least they parted ways on a laugh — albeit a dark one. Ayato wasn't a fool. He knew what the visit had been about in the end, peace offerings aside.

All that talk about love overcoming obstacles? Love being more powerful than anything else? Otonashi actually wanted him to take a shot at true love's kiss. It was a good thing he hadn't outright suggested it, or else Ayato would have laughed in his face. Knowing Otonashi and the curveballs life had thrown at him, he could see how that appeared to be such a simple solution in his eyes.

It would work like a charm with him and Kanade, and even enrich their romance knowing their love was true. But Otonashi had to get this analogy out of his head! There was no parallel. Remembering what they meant to each other may have reconciled Otonashi and Kanade, but it shattered him and Yuri on the same night.

That had been the damn problem! What was Otonashi thinking? After the concert, remembering who Yuri was to him in the Afterlife had made him feel like a subordinate. At the baseball game, remembering who she was to him in this life had sent him on a downward spiral into unrequited love. False, uninformed, unrequited love. He'd lost himself loving her again. He'd made himself too vulnerable.

There was no way he was going to make the same mistake twice and even think about true love's kiss. She didn't love him, she said so herself. So why should he bother? Why should he bother when, unlike Kanade, she had never sought him out and tried to fix what was broken?

When she had actively made things worse? At home, Ayato lingered in front of the bathroom mirror and took a long hard look at his reflection.

Staring out at him was someone soft, dull, and vulnerable. Someone who had regressed too much and been broken as a punishment. He glared in disapproval. Yuri obliterated much of the person she used to be in this life. Maybe he needed to do the same. And that's where I'll leave you for now. I promise to work hard and get some more chapters written, so I can come back with a steady updating schedule sooner rather than later.

When we come back, Naoi and Yuri's dynamic is drastically changed, the Battlefront finds another former member, and Yui reveals GirlDeMo related hopes and dreams.

Thanks for following along, and I hope to pick this back up in March!
