"Yes Tetsuya?"

"Why does Akashi-kun always stare out towards the rising sun?"

"I'm not looking at the sun. I'm looking at a flower." Akashi paused briefly. Akashi activated his Emperor eye and focused on a small cottage. "Tetsuya, there," Akashi pointed. "Can you see my flower?"

Kuroko looked in the direction that Akashi pointed. He saw a dusty young man getting up to feed the horses. "Him? Akashi-san?" asked Kuroko, tilting his head slightly.


"Akashi-kun, the one with the course brown hair feeding the horses?"

"Yes." came the response again.

"Such a generic flower Akashi-kun."

"Not a generic flower Tetsuya. MY generic flower."
