Heath wondered if it had been naive of him to think that everything could go back to the way it had been before. He and Kyousuke and Tomoe had been in a happy relationship at the beginning of their second, at least until it all fell apart after he was injured and Tomoe left for America.

On some level, he wondered if it was his fault. After the incident, maybe he hadn't reached out to his teammates as much as he should have. Maybe he had been so focused on the club that he had ruined it by neglecting the people who were at its core.

He had relegated their relationship to something of the past when Tomoe suddenly came back. He knew Kyousuke had been hit even harder by Tomoe's departure than he had, so he had no illusions that bringing the three of them back together would be easy, but he was determined to try. After all, love meant nothing if it wasn't worth fighting for.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Kyousuke wondered if he would ever be able to move past Tomoe's betrayal. It had been bad enough after the incident their second year when Tomoe had left shortly after without a word. It had been months before he even learned Tomoe had left the country.

He had had a brief moment of hope when he learned Tomoe had returned to Japan, but that hope was crushed when Honan faced Kakyoin, and Tomoe pulled him aside after the race to deride him for the value he placed on his teammates.

"Sayonara, Kyousuke," Tomoe had said, and Kyousuke had felt his world shatter.

He knew Heath had overheard that conversation too, so when Heath had brought up the idea of trying to repair their relationship with Tomoe anyway, he had been dumbfounded.

He still loved Tomoe, perhaps he always would, but he wasn't sure he would ever be able to trust him fully again, not after the damage he had done. He would try though, because he cared about Heath, and because some part of him did still desperately want to make things better again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Leaving had been one of the hardest decisions Tomoe had ever made. He hadn't known how to bring up the subject, how to explain the ways in which he felt too different from the others, and so he hadn't. He had packed his bags one night and left the next morning without a word.

The first few weeks in America had been some of the hardest of his life. His English wasn't nearly as good as he had thought it was, and he struggled to adjust. More than once he picked up the phone intending to call Heath or Kyousuke just to hear a familiar voice, but then he had reminded himself that he had burned that bridge, and that it was better for all of them that way.

He hadn't expected to run into his two old teammates as soon as he did after he returned to Japan, but when he did, all of the feelings he had locked away came rushing back to the surface.

He had stamped them out immediately; he had a race to think about, and he couldn't afford the distraction.

He couldn't forget the look of hurt and betrayal Kyousuke had given him when he said goodbye though, and as he lay awake in his hotel room that night, he wondered if what he had said was actually what he wanted.

He didn't deserve them, and they didn't deserve the things he had said to them, but if they ever reached out to him, he thought he might agree to try again.
