Welcome. This is a sequel to another fic by me called "More Than A Memory". Due to the fact that I really thought a sequel would be nice, and someone else also thought it would be a good idea, I have written one. This one is longer than the first part, but I hope everyone enjoys it. It's FujiXRyoma. I really like them paired together. I really didn't think I would…but I just fell in love with them together (Though, I will always love FujiXEiji the most…even if I don't have any finished stories with them together!).

Oh, before I forget! I don't own these characters or the Prince of Tennis.


Fading Picture

Fuji stared at the picture of the tennis club he once belonged to. The edges on the picture we ripping and the image was starting to fade. Placing the picture on his desk, he put his finger over the smallest figure.

"…Echizen Ryoma…" Fuji's voice had a sad tone to it. "I haven't forgotten about you…"

"Echizen!" Momoshiro ran up to the younger boy. "Is it true?"

"Hmm?" Echizen looked up at his senpai. "What are you talking about?"

"You're not going to join the tennis club?"

"I can't."


"I'm going to let those memories fade away…just like he did…"


Placing his hand on his cheek, Ryoma looked up at the older boy with a sad look. "It hurts just thinking about it."

After that one day where Fuji was taking pictures of the tennis club, Ryoma became attached to him. For the few weeks they had left together in junior high, they spent every minute they could with each other. Once Fuji moved onto high school, he stopped contacting Ryoma. Every time the younger boy would call or go over, Fuji would either be too busy or out. Echizen trusted his senpai's words. He thought he'd always be a part of his life. As time slowly passed, Echizen stopped believing he'd see his beloved Fuji again. He wanted to forget everything that happened. He wanted his memories of Fuji to fade away just like a picture would.

"Fuji!" Eiji called for his friend. "You didn't wait for me after class."

"Sorry," Fuji's normally happy face bared a frown.

"What's wrong?"

"I'm a bad person, aren't I?" Fuji cleaned the glasses he started to wear since entering high school. "I pulled him so close…now he's fading…just like the picture."


"Eiji, please…even hearing you say that makes me feel bad."

"Look!" Eiji hit the back of Fuji's head.

"What?" Looking up, Fuji's eyes lit up. "Echizen!"

"Fuji-senpai," Ryoma looked away from the older boys. "No matter how hard I try, I can't forget about you. The pictures are fading…why won't the memories of you just fade away along with them?" He quickly shot a stern look at Fuji. "I want the hurt to just go away!"

Fuji, without thinking, ran up and embraced the younger boy. "Don't let me fade away. I didn't mean for this to happen, Echizen."

Ryoma pulled his arms up and around Fuji. Tears stained his cheeks. His grip grew tighter as he buried his face into the older boys chest. "Don't leave me again."

"I won't," Fuji reassured him. "Starting today, lets make new memories…together."


Darn my endings! They make is so easy to continue on! I could always add more chapters to this story. It just seems like a good place to stop as well. I can't decide! What do you think, reader? Keep going or stop here? Help me make a decision.

Also, where did Eiji go in the end? He just faded away…I guess.

I hope people don't mind me putting Fuji in glasses. I thought he would look cute with glasses.

Anyways, thank you so much for reading. If people tell me I should continue, I will. Otherwise, this will be complete for now. Don't forget to review and let me know what you think. Thanks!
