"Obey no matter what"

In his bedroom one October afternoon, Ritsuka excitedly showed Soubi a video about astronomy his science class viewed that day. Happy to see his sacrifice so cheerful, he watched with interest.

As the video ended, they heard pounding on the door. "Ritsuka I want to talk to you", his mother said sweetly.

"One minute mom, I'll be right there."

Not a second later she angrily commanded "Let me in right now."

Ritsuka put a finger over his lips and pointed to the window. Soubi silently did as instructed and jumped to the ground.

A moment later, he heard the usual yelling. When the sound of a slap echoed in his ears, Soubi gritted his teeth. He left his side for this.

Suddenly there was a thud and Ritsuka began fearfully shouting "Mom! Mom!"

Concerned for the safety of his sacrifice Soubi immediately jumped to the window. Thankfully he saw Ritsuka was unharmed but for the bright pink hue of his cheek. His mother was unmoving on the floor, and Soubi wished to leave her this way.

Panic in his eyes Ritsuka turned to him "Soubi please do something!"

He would do anything to erase that expression from his sacrifice's lovely face.

Obeying, he knelt beside the body and put an ear to her lips, but heard no breath. He began chest compressions, listened again, and continued pressing. She soon started coughing and gasping.

He stood and received a tight hug. "Thank you" Ritsuka said with tears gleaming in his eyes. Soubi nodded, and kissed his cheek. Without another word, he climbed through the window again.

As soon as the woman was revived, she was right back at it. "Don't touch me, you're not my Ritsuka! Close that window, it's cold!" Ritsuka did as told, and would open it again just enough later.

Watching the window close, Soubi was filled with remorse. He did plenty for Semei that he regretted, but this time was different. He saved the life of the wretched woman who beat and tortured Ritsuka.

As a fighter he obeyed his sacrifice, no matter what.
