Akane’s jellyfish-like companion didn’t have to remind her about this day anymore because she already knew it very well. She didn’t have to think anymore; that was how well she knew it.
Kougami Shinya’s birthday.
This time was supposed to be his first time to celebrate his day of birth with her, if ever he did celebrate it, but he had left the MWPSB. This day too would’ve been special if he had stayed, because Akane wanted to make him the happiest on his birthday, but all that’s left with her now is the farewell letter she received from him, and memories made together within a short period of time.
Her tears dropped once again on the farewell letter as she read his last words and reminisced the times she had with him. Usually, she would talk with Masaoka when she had problems with Kougami, but he was gone too and she knew she had to move on.
"Happy birthday, Kougami-san." she uttered while looking up in the sky, and just like each day, she left for work to protect the laws and bring justice to the society.
Together was ephemeral, but love was not and would last.
Otanjoubi omedetou, Kougami-san!
