Ryouma is still chasing Tezuka. Humor with Drama, I-2

Character(s): Tezuka Kunimitsu, Uriel

Kunimitsu picked up the next in his stack of birthday cards, and smiled faintly.
This one was bound to be amusing.

Dear Buchou,

Happy 40th. Heard you passed the Park Ranger certification; congratulations.
Hope bears don’t eat you.

On that subject, finally got Sengoku to sign on, and Lucifer says mountains
no problem to add. Are you sure you won’t come?

Kunimitsu sipped his own tea, quite calmly. "Of course."
