Aw, this was very sweet. For me, this scene was so emotional and intense that it seems hard to tamper with, but you did a good job in not taking anything away from the scene while still managing to add in the heart-wrenching goodbyes. Lovely job.

Whenever people mention Battle Royale nowadays they always compare it to "The Hunger Games" , whether the Hunger Games took the idea from Battle Royale. However, in some ways, Battle Royale is better than the latter. To prevent getting stoned by a bunch of Hunger Games die-hards, I'll say that there were also some good things about the Hunger Games I liked.
One thing I liked about Battle Royale was the fact that the author focused less on the main duo/threesome and took the time to elaborate on some of the friendships and grudges that Shuuya's classmates had. Great alternative scene to what SHOULD have been a sentimental moment between two best friends.
Unfortunately, I have to say that reading this scene felt like chugging down a flat soda. After a while, the fizz goes away and all you're left with is a bunch of empty calories. I'm sorry, if you ever read my writing you'll also find its full of cliches and sappy metaphors. ;) Not saying your's is.
Thanks for your story and thanks for actually reading this review (if you ever do),
