Ever since the group of exorcists found out that Rin was really Dusk the whole time, the demon boy hasn't come near them at all. Bon would occasionally see the half demon at the normal high school during the day-where if Rin saw him or any of the others he would bolt away as fast as possible- but wouldn't appear for the Cram School. The younger Okumura twin didn't seem to give a damn while Shiemi would sit at the front quietly with a forlorn look pointing to the seat next to her; Konekomaru seemed that he was depressed from the silent fight that his two friends were having. Shima was pissed with Bon and wouldn't talk to him or Okumura-sensei and the same went for Kamiki. The pink haired monk went as far as to sit with his girlfriend and completely blow off the two-tone haired teen and Konekomaru during their exorcist classes. This behavior continued most of the week until Thursday came along; for the entire day it seemed that not only was Rin missing from high school but also Paku, Kamiki, and Shima. Of course when the three came back the next day with different levels of misery without the half demon Bon knew something was up. However, Okumura-sensei just seemed to be pissed with Shima and Kamiki when they showed up the next day to class. "Is there a good reason that you two decided to play hooky yesterday or were you two just too busy making out?" He glowered but it didn't even faze the couple. "No we weren't making out you dick, we were spending the last day Rin had here with him before he got reassigned to some other country." Shima snarled at him. "He can't be reassigned to anywhere, he's not an exorcist." Yukio snapped back, making the two in front of him let out a humorless laugh. "That's what you think! He got his Meister Sunday and was promoted to Middle Second Class because of his scores but you wouldn't know that…well I don't know, SINCE YOU DISOWNED HIM YOU BASTARD!" Kamiki yelled at the top of her lungs, pure fury burning in her reddish-brown eyes. Not only was Yukio speechless, but the rest of the class as well, especially Bon. What? He became an exorcist? The monk thought with shock. It then hit him that Kamiki also said that the half demon was also leaving the country. When he realized this, all the blood in his body went cold as heart seemed to lurch painfully against his ribcage.
"H-he's gone?" Bon gasped once he found his voice again, but it disappeared once more when Kamiki turned her glare on him. "AND YOU!" She shrieked before smacking him across the face so hard that she sliced his cheek with her nails, making it bleed instantly.
"HE LOVED YOU! HE KNEW THAT YOU WOULD PROBABY NEVER ACCEPT HIM SINCE HE WAS A DEMON AND THAT YOU WERE A MONK, BUT HE STILL LOVED YOU! BUT WHAT DID YOU DO? YOU JUST STOOD THERE LIKE A FUCKING MORON AND LET HIM WALK AWAY! GOD DAMN IT SUGURO, HE FUCKING HAD A MENTAL BREAK DOWN AFTERWARDS BECAUSE OF YOU AND HIS FUCKING BROTHER! DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT WAS TO GET HIM TO OPEN UP TO PEOPLE AGAIN AFTER WE ALL FOUND OUT HE WAS THE SON OF SATAN? NOW HE WILL PROBABLY NEVER TRUST ANYONE AGAIN! I HOPE YOU TWO ARE FUCKING HAPPY WITH YOURSELVES!"
It was then dead silent in the room; the only thing that could be heard was Kamiki's ragged breathing as she tried to catch her breath once more, tears of anger and frustration pouring from her eyes. Bon was beyond stunned. Was it really true about what she just said? Did Rin actually love him? That he loved him even though he thought he had no chance with loving a monk? But he took that chance; he wanted to go for it even if it meant complete failure. And you wanted him to succeed too, but now the love of your life is gone. His conscious whispered to him as a wave of despair washed over him. "Oh God, what have I done?" He choked out as he buried his face in his hands in shame, tears building up at the corner of his eyes. Yukio on the other hand, didn't even bat an eye at Kamiki's outburst; instead his eyes were filled with anger. "Great, just great! I hope he's fucking happy with himself now that he doesn't have to lie to his friends and family anymore! What a great brother he is!" He said sarcastically, however no one in the room was amused. "You know what Okumura-sensei? Go fuck yourself." Shima hissed at the younger twin. His girlfriend then shoved Paku's camcorder into Yukio's chest after pressing the play button and turning the volume up so everyone could hear.
"I guess I will dedicate this song to someone who is no longer here on this world. Here's to a great man."
Rin's voice said before the sound of a guitar playing a sad tune reached the group's ears. Yukio looked at the small screen when his brother began to sing. The look of hatred slowly began to fade into one of sorrow and regret as tears slowly trickled down his face once he realized the song was meant for their father Shiro.
~ I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade, I would~
When the younger twin heard these lyrics he broke down into sobs when he saw how heartbroken his brother was and felt admiration for how Rin really meant that he would change that day if he could and guilt when he realized how much pain he must of inflicted when he yelled at him last Saturday. But it's too late to apologize now. Dear God he must really hate me.
This was it; I'm finally on my way to becoming Paladin. I was finally an exorcist and not only that, I was going to be placed in a group far away from Japan so I wouldn't have to deal with any more drama or hatred. Of course I was going to miss my true friends, Ukobach and the bands at the café but they all understand that I had to just get away. As a congratulation gift, Shura got me a brand new cell phone with a new number and everything. So before I left I made sure to give my new number to Shima, Izumo, and Paku, along with the Final Hope gang. Now that I was finally free from what was holding me back, I was now more determined to focus on my goals since it helped me get my mind off certain things. Rin, where are we going now? Kuro asked while tilting his head; I however continued to stare out the window as the car we were in drove us past a small path through the woods before a huge clearing appeared. The only thing there was a three-story brick mansion; the windows the only source of lighting in the dark night. "Our new home Kuro." I murmured softly. "Our new home."
And hopefully it would be better than the last.
