"A warning"

Walking at a steady pace Soubi neared the middle school. Feeling a warm breeze he pushed his sleeves to his elbows. Today was alright, and spending time with Ritsuka would make it far better.

Reaching the front gate he heard Yuiko's atrocious voice scream "Ritsuka-kun!"

Immediately he ran into the schoolyard. A boy wearing the school sports uniform pushed Ritsuka to the ground. His sacrifice's cheek was blemished by a mark that appeared to be the result of a punch.

Soubi rushed to the attacker and lifted him by his shirt collar. Legs swinging a foot and a half from the ground said boy fearfully pleaded "Let me go!"

The crowd of children watching the scene grew.

Soubi looked straight at the bully with a chill in his azure eyes, and spoke in an even tone.

"I'll offer only one warning. If you ever harm Ritsuka again, I will torture you for the rest of your life. I will be in every shadow, every nightmare, every day and every night until you lose your sanity or die by other means."

He then released cloth from his grasp. The boy fell over after landing heavily on his feet.

"Just keep that in mind. Now run along, I'm sure your mother is waiting in that rustic one story apartment on "Sakura Valley Street"", he concluded. With wide frightened eyes the bully ran pushing past the crowd.

Soubi bent and extended a hand to his sacrifice. With the familiar affectionate gaze now decorating his face he asked "Ritsuka are you alright?"

Standing he responded "Yeah thanks Soubi". He wiped the dirt from his pants then they walked through the gate. Yuiko ran after them exclaiming about how heroic Soubi was.
