Haruto's Point of View
This is getting nowhere.
No, really, it's getting nowhere.
Well, maybe it'll be easier if I start from the beginning.
I asked Takami, "How are we supposed to learn about about Yamato-san and Honjou-san?"
He quickly responded, "By sneaking into their practice, of course."
I rolled my eyes at him, "Of course that's how we'll - wait, what? How the hell are we going to do that?"
That was when Hiruma made his presence known, starting with his demonic laugh. "Kekeke...we'll be taking advantage of those so-called acting skills that Jari Pro should have hammered into your head."
Sena seemed to get worried, which was only made clearer when he asked Hiruma, "How will we do that? By having him pose as a student at their school?"
At this, both Takami and Hiruma smirked. Hiruma proceeded to laugh again before he said, "Of course, you fucking midget!"
I turned to Shin giving him a look that I hoped he would understand. In case he didn't, I also mouthed at him, "Help me!"
Of course, he was no help even when he tried - because I still ended up being forced to pose as a Teikoku student. Then again, this was Hiruma's idea. His plans tend to work out well, so I'll just go with it until someone comes up with a better plan to learn about these people.
Why couldn't I have a normal father? I just wanted to be normal, but no...I got stuck with a mafia boss for a father - and another one as a surrogate uncle. I just can't seem to catch a break.
"Hello, are you new here?" An unfamilliar voice broke me out of my thoughts.
I replied to them, "Cavallone Gino. I just transferred here."
He responded, "The long-lost son of the Cavallone Corporation in Italy? I heard about you about ten years ago. I thought the search was called off? By the way, I'm Yamato Takeru."
I quickly said, "It was because of that FRA thing...speaking of which, you look a lot like one of my uncle Tsuna's employees."
He raised an eyebrow at me, "Really now? I'll have to look into that. I'm afraid I've never heard of your uncle."
I muttered under my breath, "Vongola."
He gulped and asked, "Did you just say Vongola? How is he associated with them? How are youassociated with them?"
Finally, something he doesn't know!
I chuckled, "Why are you so tense? Vongola is just the name of his company that he inherited from his ancestors. It's been very successful since he took over."
He sighed, "Okay, for a second there, I thought your 'uncle' was part of the Vongola mafia family."
That's because he's the boss of the Vongola mafia famiglia, baka. Let's not forget, my father's the head of one of his strongest allies...but still this is troublesome. He's hiding something.
Suddenly, my phone rang. I turned to Yamato-san and excused myself before walking to a more secluded area to answer the call.
"What have you learned about Honjou Taka and Yamato Takeru so far?"
"Nothing on Honjou-san, but Yamato-san seems to be hiding something. I muttered 'Vongola' and he started freaking out. There's a chance he might already know about Sena's inevitable fate."
"That will be troublesome, indeed. I'm passing the phone to Hiruma, he's got some information you'll need."
"Oi, fucking model. Watch out for Koizumi Karin. She's related to fucking yakuza. That means if you see her, you fucking run for your life. The yakuza family she's part of is small-time, but we can't risk it. The fucking monkey's idol can't know you're mafia because then he'll find a way to take us all out of the running."
"How would that happen?"
"He's the fucking head of the Kansai High School Football Association. He gets dirt on either of our team members, NEITHER of us go to the Christmas Bowl."
"Well, this just got a whole lot harder - she's just now arriving at the team practice."
"Yosh. I'll try to be back soon."
"Get the fucking fuck away from there before she fucking sees you."
"I know, Hiruma."
"Then why are you still there?"
"Because you won't hang up the phone."
"Then hang it up yourself!"
I closed my cell phone and immediately started walking away from the school's football field when I heard someone scream at me - or at least, I think he was screaming at me.
"Hey, look, it's the Italian kid!"
I'm only half-Italian, you bastards.
With that thought, I ignored whoever pointed me out and kept walking away. I can't let that Koizumi girl know that I'm here.
Yamato's Point of View
"That's weird. He didn't seem to mind talking to me before he answered his phone," I said to my teammates.
Taka, who's also my best friend, replied, "Maybe he just doesn't like you."
I responded, "I don't know...he was fine when I met him two minutes ago."
Karin added in, "It also looked like he only left because I got here, I wonder why..."
Taka snorted at that, "He probably hates you, then."
Karin was irritated by that, and she made it known. "Why would he hate me? I never even met the guy."
Taka raised his eyebrow at her, "Maybe he heard rumors about you and decided to leave before he found out they were true."
"What rumors?" Karin asked.
Taka answered her, "The ones about you throwing a football at Takeru's you-know-what when you when he made you try out for the team."
I yelled in protest, "Don't bring that dayinto this conversation."
"Don't feel embarassed, Takeru-kun," our resident idiot, Aki Reisuke, chimed in.
I chortled at him, "Shut up, you baka."
Taka facepalmed and sighed, "Where do you think that new kid went, anyway?"
Aki replied, "To find his fellow Italians, of course."
I screamed at him, "He's referring to where he used to go to school, dumbass."
Taka confirmed my statement, "What Takeru said."
Aki just stood there, dumbfounded, and said, "Oh."
I yelled at him again, "Oh, you ask that stupid question, and all you can say is 'oh' - we should cut you before we even go to the Kansai Tournament!"
I would have yelled at him even more, but Karin interrupted me before I could by exclaiming, "Calm down, Takeru!"
Suddenly, Karin's cell phone rang. She had an American song as a ringtone, but I think I'm the only one in this school that can understand what's being said. I don't know who sings it, but all I know is that it's annoying - and that it keeps saying something about a "superbass," whatever that is.
Karin's Point of View
I answered my cell phone shortly after it started ringing; at the same time, I was walking away from my teammates to a more secluded area.
"Koizumi-sama, we looked into that transfer student you asked about."
"What did you find out?"
"He's the son of Cavallone Dino - that means that, publically, he's the heir to the Cavallone Corporation in Italy; in reality, he's the next person to become the boss of the Cavallone famiglia."
"He's part of the mafia, Koizumi-sama."
"What would the mafia be infiltrating my school for?"
"The Cavallone are the most trusted allies of the Vongola - the strongest mafia in the world. He was probably looking into possible candidates for Vongola Undicesimo's guardians - a highly coveted position among mafioso."
"Ah, but who would interest them here?"
"Well, considering the rumors about who Undicesimo is and who the Cavallone heir is, it's safe to say that they were most likely looking at your friend, Yamato."
"Nani? Takeru-kun? But what would they want with him?"
"He's one of those people that can easily settle conflict, you've seen that in action - haven't you? I also wouldn't be surprised if the kid was a natural assassin, common among the Vongola rain guardians."
"Really...demo, wouldn't that mean they'd look into Taka-kun, too? He's just as good as Takeru-kun in settling conflicts..."
"The person they sent to look into Yamato probably wanted to investigate Honjou, too - your presence must have caused them to leave early."
"So I was the reason for his early departure...hmm, anyway, do you know where he used to go to school? I was talking about it earlier with my teammates."
"Ojo Private Senior High School. That was all I could find from the information I was actually able to get about his education. I suspect he might have been part of the Ojo White Knights, but I could be wrong. It doesn't say a damn thing about athletics here...wait, what's this? Jari Productions...do you know anything about that?"
"The transfer student worked for Jari Productions? Then, that must mean...anyway, I'll call you if I need anymore info, ja ne."
I hung up the phone and walked back towards my teammates. I called out to them, "I found out where the new kid used to go to school."
Takeru raised his eyebrow at what I said, "Really, that was fast. Exactly how did you do it?"
I replied to him, "That doesn't matter right now. Anyway, he used to attend Ojo."
Aki responded, "But I thought he was from Italy?"
I rolled my eyes at him, "He was probably born there, but couldn't you tell that he spent most of his life here, in Japan?"
Takeru grinned widely and said, "I could!"
On the other hand, Taka just nodded to show that he could also see that Cavallone-san spent most of his life in Japan. Then, he frowned, and said, "Then, it's possible he was here just to spy on our practice to help out his old teammates."
Aki laughed at Taka, "We don't know he was on the White Knights."
I sighed, "He was on the White Knights - you might know him better as Sakuraba Haruto."
Taka asked me, "Wasn't he that model all the girls in your class would drool over?"
I nodded, "Yes, it's the same guy - not sure how that relates, though."
Takeru said, "Then we don't need to worry. Shinryuji always beats Ojo anyway, so we won't have to deal with them - and Ojo's easy to beat for us."
I sighed, "It's not Ojo I'm worried about."
Takeru asked me, "Then why are you worrying?"
I answered, "There's a chance he might be involved in the same thing some of my relatives do, that's all..."
Takeru laughed, "Why would you be worried about that?"
Taka answered him, "Her relatives are yakuza."
Takeru stopped laughing and said, "Oh."
I looked him in the eye and said, "Oh, now you see why I'm worried."
AUTHOR'S NOTE:Yes, I decided to make Karin's family Yakuza - it's not like we know much about her. If you watch the anime only, you'd know nothing. Anyway, that was the 6th chapter - a bit longer than my older ones, too. Votes are below.
Kakei - 1
Yamato - 0
Taka - 0
Akaba - 1
Ikkyu - 0
Mizumachi - 0
Riku - 0
Agon - 1
Unsui - 0
I will not make my own votes unless there's a tie by the time the chapter where the guardian is decided. Not sure what order it'll be in, yet. Yamato has not come into the series at this point, which means the Christmas Bowl has not yet happened. I want to re-read those chapters before deciding what Sena will think of him and Taka. Hiruma technically has his mind made up already, you just don't know who he picks. Having the most votes does not guarantee they'll be guardian. It's mostly to see who would be well-received by writers. Your opinions are considered, don't worry about that. I'm just saying if votes are close, it can go either way. Sakuraba's choices will be the winner, but I'll be asking other Es21/KHR fans who would be best out of the candidates if votes are close. There's a poll in the profile too, so be sure to vote there! You can only vote once in the poll, but you can vote through reviews for every new chapter that gets uploaded.
