Yet, looking at the sea in Iwatobi after catching up a five years’ worth of story with his friends, Rin feels like his missing something. Someone. That despite arriving at the far end of the ocean he used to see, he still had no idea where Sousuke was. Not even his friends or former team members knew. Not even Gou.
If there were encounters, there would surely be partings and saying goodbye was never easy. So when the redheaded kid decided to leave, Sousuke could only wave his hand and uttered a meek see you later. This is not goodbye, he tried to convince himself.
As the cherry blossoms flutter around Sousuke, these petals bring back those memories he had shared with an important person.
