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!

Title: Memento
Fandom: Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
Characters: Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman (Eremika)
Summary: The only remembrance he has with him is the painful reminder of his broken promise.


Mikasa’s red scarf that fell on the ground that night is the only thing he has now.

He gave her the scarf back when they were still young, when he promised her that he will always protect her. He promised that he will be her shield, but he failed during that fateful night when all he did was fall behind her instead of being the protector he promised to be.

She meets Ichimaru again in her slumber.

The earliest memory of him that she carries with her is when he told her his name: Gin. She still thinks it is a strange name, like how she first heard it with his voice coming from his lips during their childhood. Back then, she smiled back and said that her name is Matsumoto Rangiku.

All That Mattered

As a shinigami, she barely had the time to do the things she wanted to do —drawing was one.

Rukia treasured it every time she got the chance to hold a pen and draw anything on a piece of paper. She knew deep inside that her drawings looked bad, but she would keep telling herself that she just didn’t have the time to practice. She was a frustrated artist.

Ichigo would always insult her when she made an artwork, but he would still give her sketch pads and pencils because he would see Rukia’s smile when he did. Seeing her happy was all that mattered to him.


~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 7: Wild Card

A/N: This explains whatever was unexplained in my Day 6 entry. (^_^)

Years have passed, and Shishio finally realizes that he can’t live his life waiting for Suzume.

Tsubomi is the wild card —the choice he takes when he eventually have forgotten about Suzume, because he is the one who taught him how to love.

The stars are bright when he kneels in front of Tsubomi with a small box that contains their promise of eternal love. She says yes, and he wears the silver ring around her finger.

Shishio loves Tsubomi, but Suzume is still his daytime shooting star that he can’t hold onto forever.

In Ten Years

~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 6: Sensei in Ten Years

Shishio is thirty-six. He and his former students and a few teachers meet once again in a high school reunion of salutations and small talks of flashbacks during their middle school days.

He is happy to see his students who grew up well. Some just shyly greet him, and those who are close to him ask if he is already married; but he hesitates to say he is when he sees the student who used to be his girlfriend, who has an undeniably joyful smile painted on her face as she held hands with his former male student whom the girl dated after him.

Suzume’s hair isn’t braided, and she smiles at her former homeroom teacher and boyfriend without regret in her eyes. Shishio smiles back because he cannot say that he wants her back.

In ten years, he had forgotten, but he never stopped loving.

What She Loved

~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 5: Favorite Thing About Sensei

Before Shishio broke up with her, there was one time during one of their ‘girl-talks’ when Yuyuka asked what Suzume loved about their homeroom teacher.

There were a lot. She didn’t respond to Yuyuka right away, because she had to think about it.

"I love how Sensei doesn’t mind being a laughing matter. He still wears that sushi-printed necktie even though everyone in the class would laugh at him."


~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 4: Sensei in a Costume

A raccoon costume cannot disguise their relationship forever.

At lunch, Shishio would go to the rooftop of the school and reminisce everything. He always remembered that time when he wore that raccoon costume, just to be with Suzume, because he simply wanted to.

He had worn a ridiculous costume just to be with her, but he couldn’t even tell why he could not do anything to keep her.

Vain Hope

~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 3: In Another Lifetime

He hated that he was too old for her, and she was too young for him. No one actually had the right to speculate if their love was wrong, but he knew she would get hurt if they brought this further.

Shishio hated the age gap between him and Suzume, and the fact that he could not do anything to change either of their ages.

He always wished that someday, people would stop judging the love between one who wore a student’s uniform and another who wore a teacher’s uniform. If that won’t be granted, he wished to be on the so-called right age to love Suzume.

Maybe in another lifetime, he hoped.

Scent of Cigarettes

~ Shishio-sensei Week, Day 2: Cigarettes or Glasses

It was the scent of the cancer stick from either the red box, or the green box; she never knew which one. All she knew was that it was the scent she always inhaled when she was in his arms.

The smell of cigarettes that stayed on Shishio’s skin was one of the things that Suzume missed —one that Mamura never had.
