Hey another sorta filler but contains plot related goodness. Author Notes at bottom

I do not own Ranma 1/2

Mousse sat across from Akari in a small dinner on the outskirts of town.

He was currently trying to keep his mouth from hanging open.

"C-Could you repeat that?"

"Oh Mousse, did you get hit on the head one too many times, I said Ranma and Ryoga will be back in no time!"

"That's what I thought you said" he breathed out the words so soft she didn't hear him.

He was in shock, he was also completely understandably confused as hell and pissed off.

Akari looked at him confusedly, "Did you not know?"

Mousse shook his head so hard, she was afraid something popped.

She was now looking really concerned and worried. "I've been receiving letters from Ryoga for months, has Akane not received a thing? Truly? Maybe it's wrong address, I heard she moved. You know I haven't really kept contact with her in so long..."

The rest of whatever Akari was saying was lost on Mousse as he was currently stuck at the letter part and 10x more confused.

Akane wasn't receiving anything, is she was, she would have talked about it, if not to him, to somebody and she wasn't the type to hide, especially with a two year old boy who tries to get into everything he can and will tell the world everything.

And though she wasn't on the best terms with her father, he would never withhold something like this. Neither would either of her sisters, that could only mean someone was intercepting the mail.

But that didn't quite make sense either! With Nabiki's agents and eyes all over town, plus the fact she had been digging in the case for months, Wait!

It had to be someone under radar! Someone with no loyalties to the Tendo's or the town seeing how most people loved (Kasumi/Akane) and respected (Nabiki) and the fact it wasn't exactly a big town.

They were either under radar or there abilities were above, while it could fool the untrained, people like Mousse and Tofu should have picked up on it.

Deciding he needed to act fast, he interrupted Akari saying "Look it's been nice catching up but I remembered an errand I have to do, and was wondering if I could take on of the letters to ask Akane about?"

Akari smiled, though not completely fooled, "Sure Mousse, we'll talk another time"

"You are the best!" he said sincerely jumping up and practically bolting from the dinner.

As soon as he was outdoors, he pulled out his phone and hit speed dial "Doc it's me, and I've got news."

First off I want to thank you for being so understanding I feel I should explain a little where I'm coming from. I'm not nesscairly in the best mind frame, I'm rather sensitive probably too sensitive and I know to be an actual author I'll have to grow a backbone, but with the internet I've become kinda paranoid about hate and people will post and make fun of me and I know it's kind of ridiculous but that wasn't the only reason. The other as if you've been a reader of mine you already know, my health isn't the best and just it's been hard but I'm really thankful. I hope you don't take this as me just wanting attention because that's not what I'm after, I just want to write and be happy and make others happy.

So thank you again pursemonger, tuatara, spicarus, BobV and JeremyGU from Da with your reasoning of I should write for me, I've come to the point where I think I'm ready to move it forward.

Also and lastly if you were ever wondering what little Kazuki looks like, there is now an art of him that is up, link on my profile. This will be the last update for a while because I will be trying to make all next chapters longer. Thank you for your support of me and this story, have a good day.
