Prince of Tennis isn't mine, It belongs to Konomi Takeshi


"Oh my"

They stared at each other, surprise etched on each of their faces. After a few minutes it was Ryoma who decided to break the ice.

"Hey" he started

"Ryoma-kun is it really you? I think I might be going crazy" she breathed. "I think I've been thinking about you too much and now I'm imagining you standing right in front of me."

"Well Ryuzaki I might have been doing the same thing because I think I'm imagining that I flew all the way to Japan and now staring you right in the face."

Her mouth slowly formed an 'O' as he smirked.

"So my imaginary Ryuzaki, care to let me in?"

"I still can't believe you're here Ryoma-kun!" Sakuno Ryuzaki exclaimed as they got settled on her couch.

"Do you want me to go then?" he offered.

"No it's just that I've been thinking about you a lot the past few days and I couldn't help but think that you would ever come back, I still hope you would. I remembered different kinds of things, it made me feel so giddy and sad at the same time."

As she stopped her tirade she wondered when she got the courage to speak in front of him without stuttering.

"To tell you the truth I've doubted if any of this was real. After fifteen years I never thought of coming back. But a couple of weeks ago a friendly tennis match changed that. You see my friend Kevin wanted me to meet his girlfriend, I didn't want to but he insisted. We got into a very long discussion and ever since then I found you in my thoughts."

He paused, that was probably the longest thing he ever said to her.

"Wow, I guess tomo-chan was right."

"Who? Was she your friend? The one with the big mouth?"

"Ryoma-kun! Well, err yes, she was that one. Anyway, she told me that if I sneeze without any particular reason someone was probably thinking about me."

"She got that part right."

"Ryoma-kun I know this may seem awkward but with everything we discussed I can't help but ask, what are you really doing here?"

"Hn, I don't really know. I was hoping you would, but since we've been thinking about the same things for the past few weeks it's not that surprising to find out that you would."

"Please stop confusing me Ryoma-kun, I don't think I can take so much excitement in one day."

"I'm not confusing you Ryuzaki, I want to ask you what you want to do."

"That's what I was asking YOU!"

"Calm down Ryuzaki."

"I know I'm sorry, I just want to iron things out."

"There's only one way to settle this you know."

She could only look at him as he spoke;

"What are you thinking about?" he ended with a mischievous grin.

It's not right to say they did not need words. But it would wrong to say that they didn't need thoughts. For in those thoughts they found out what they wanted all along.
