On the Other Side of Town

Ryouma gets an offer. Humor, I-2

Character(s): Echizen Ryouma, Michael

Ryoma looked at the boy across from him skeptically. "Not that I think
you’re lying, but remind me why you’re doing this again?"

"Call it sibling rivalry," Michael replied shortly. "Anyway,
I can guarantee you that your captain’s shoulder will be as good as if it
were never hurt, once my people are done."

Ryoma raised an eyebrow and crossed his arms. "You remind me a lot of
someone I know. I’d bet your brother would remind me of someone, too."
Seeing Michael’s dark look, Ryoma shrugged. "Thanks for the help, anyway.
Why not just go to Tezuka-buchou?"

"Would he have agreed to let us help him?" Michael replied.

"…right. Thanks," said Ryoma.
