“Yes..! Pretending to be a teenager isn’t that hard. How are you then?” Looks around it a bit, deciding a little messy.
”Oh Mukurou! Haha, long time no see~ Did the old man let you inside?” Yamamoto asked, happy to see the other in his room though a little surprised too.
…Y-yamamoto-san, y-your too kind, B-but are you sure i don’t trouble you, B-but Arigatou…F-for the offer….❞
Chrome couldn’t help but put a refreshing smile on her face, considering of all the people in Vongola, Takeshi seemed to be the most hospitality when around a group of people, he couldn’t just say no can he? then again he is indeed one of Tsuna’s friends, aside Gokudera always with the brunette from time to time.
…Say Yamamoto-san…what do you want to be when you grow up? A-are you gonna help out with the sushi plac…? ❞
Yamamoto of course, wasn’t going to let the night end any other way. Not unless Chrome preferred going on her own, which he was pretty sure she didn’t. She seemed grateful for it. “Haha, its nothing its nothing… Friends should look out for each other.” He waited for the violet-haired girl to join him before the started walking from the swing-set, then the playground and eventually the park all together. By then, the sun was close to completely set, the sky mostly dark aside from the stray highlights of pink, yellow and orange. It was a nice view to end their time together.
“Ah- what I plan to do? I wouldn’t mind helping the old man out. But… my dream is still MLB. I hope I’ll be good enough for that… Baseball is what I’m best at,” he said, smiling down to the girl walking at his side.
“And Chrome? What are your dreams?” Come to think of it… he really didn’t know much about the Mist’s hobbies at all; her likes and dislikes. She was an enigma for the most part…
Tsuna turned quickly in the direction that voice came from and— Oh. Yamamoto?! He was pulling a prank on him..?? That was an extreme prank that shouldn’t have been pulled! It nearly gave poor Tsuna a heart attack, to which he was grabbing at his chest and breathing heavily.
“Y-YamaOOOHTO—” And he was pulled into a hug, which was why he raised his voice like that. But he had to admit, the hug was a bit comforting. The worst of thoughts had wormed their way in for a while, thinking he was going to be ambushed or something. So seeing Yamamoto was a huge relief.
“You probably shouldn’t do that anymore, though. “
“Haha, I passed the test then?” He gave a grin as he reached over with his free hand, ruffling at the other boy’s hair before he started leading him forward. Since he had given Tsuna a bit of a scare… he had to make it up to him. And he knew just the way he could do that. Hopefully. “Let’s head to my place for sushi. Tsuna’s probably hungry after all that running, right?” After a few strides forward, he’d released the hold on his friend and allowed his arms to cross behind his head as they so often did, smiling as he continued walking towards Takesushi. Now that he thought about it… all that spying left him feeling pretty hungry too. His lunch was wearing off by then and his stomach was making that loud and clear.
“Does Tsuna have to head home right away? Maybe we could play some games?” He was always up to the additional company, especially since his old man would be occupied with the shop for a few more hours at least.
“Tachibana… Kanade…” Kanade pushed his hand away since she didn’t need the cloth or require his help. “You are in the afterlife, no one here can die so do not worry about me. Even if you are chopped into pieces you will eventually return to normal.” She spoke with the same monotonous voice as she always did, even if the subject was a bit morbid.
As she spoke the bullets that were in her body popped out of the holes they had made, falling to the ground. The wounds magically healed as if time had been sped up to heal the wounds in seconds. “Do you want any other information?” She said while tilting her head and looking up at him.
He seemed a bit old to be a new arrival but there was no way that he was a npc. As she thought about it Kanade decided it would be a good idea to tell him about the npc’s after he got over any shock he might have from hearing that he was dead.
“Tachibana Kanade… I’ll remember that one. You’re a brave kid,” Yamamoto said, the hand pressing to the girl’s wounded stomach only there a little longer until it was moved away. It was a bit surprising of her to do… his instincts being to protest the action until she was explaining it to him.
His forehead was creased a bit, showing his stupor to the response as he leaned back on his feet; still crouching before the other. “Wouldn’t Kanade say that’s a little depressing to think? We haven’t reached that point yet.” His hand moved again, about to apply more pressure to her abdomen when he witnessed something that had him pulling back. What…? The bullets… they were coming out. His eyes had widened a fraction then, his shocked expression due to a number of thoughts. But the last one, the one that had him thinking maybe Kanade was right… left him with a horrible, sinking feeling. The reason why he didn’t feel that pain anymore, the reason his clothing appeared so clean… had he really died?
He reached a hand up then, gripping at the necklace hanging from his neck, squeezing it as his eyes tightly shut. No… he couldn’t have, he couldn’t have been killed. Not like that, not with his family and friends still there fighting… not with Tsuna… Gokudera…
“You’re saying… the reason I feel as good as I do… is because I died then? I’m dead…” Yamamoto trailed off, eyes now opening to focus on Kanade. Her wounds were healed… not a trace of them left aside from the blood on her shirt.
