The Games We Play
It's his first game of the season and the first time he and Hideo have had the bad luck to be playing the same day. So with Haruka somewhere over Europe; Noda, sick; and his parents too far away, there will be nobody he cares about cheering for him, because he knows better than to expect Hikari.
Warm-ups are over, and he was winding up for the first pitch when a commotion in the press stands catches his eye. Hiro double takes: that's Hikari making her way into the box.
The game is his best on record.
It's nothing special.
