Taiga gave in to the urge to cry, until she heard something from outside. The sound of gentle footsteps. It stopped right by the classroom doorway, long enough for her to wipe the tears away and put on a straighter face. The footfalls drew nearer, and even before she raised her head she knew it was Ryuuji.
For a moment she feared what he might say, having caught her in a situation like this. But he just offered her his hand and said,Come on, Taiga. Let's clean this up and head home together. I'll cook whatever you want for dinner.
Those few and simple words fit just right in the empty spaces in her heart.
And she thought to herself,Really... everyone...
They're all idiots.
How can they say that Ryuuji has the eyes of a murderer? The only thing that lies behind them is kindness.
