Summary: Ryo is the new teacher in Kame's school and he cares a lot about students with problems. And Kame is such a student, but actually he doesn't want to have any help, becaue he is a loner, and his only friends Jin and Jun already drifted apart from him. When Ryo gets to know about Kame's real situation and his real life, he tries anything to save him.

Jun placed the cup of tea on the table and sat down towards Kame, his hands on the other one’s legs. He tried to calm him down, but Kame didn’t stop crying.
“My life is a total mess”, Kame sobbed some time later. He couldn’t hold it back anymore. Since years he tried to be unreachable, hard, cool and totally strong, but now he hadn’t any chance to stop his walls breaking down.
Since he knew Ryo he felt a small sunlight in the dark, but with this rejection he felt something breaking down in him, his built up and faked confidence was gone from one second to the other.
Jun sat there and saw Kame holding Jin’s shirt, burying his head in Jin’s chest. He felt a stinging pain in his chest again when he saw Jin kissing Kame’s forehead slightly, trying to calm him down.
Kame fell asleep some time later and lied coiled up on the couch. Some drained tears were still running down his cheeks and he turned around sometimes till he breathed in deeply and rested in one position.
Jin stood up and walked into the kitchen where he saw Jun sitting in the corner, his head in his hands. “Difficult, isn’t it?”, he said walking up to the other one.
Jun just sat there and nodded slightly without looking at Jin.
“Jun?! Is everything alright?” Jin touched his boyfriend’s shoulder and stepped in front of him to face him.
“Jin, what was between you and Kame?”, he asked and saw Jin wincing next to him.
“What are you talking about?”, Jin got a little bit nervous and knelt down in front of the other one.
“I saw how you embraced him, how you touched him, and I could see that there was more between you, maybe not now, but there was some time ago, wasn’t it?”, Jun said slowly.
“Ano…yes, there was something between us, but it was long ago and it’s definitely over”, Jin answered and saw Jun’s eyes were sparkling for one moment. “Why didn’t you say a word?”
“I didn’t think it would be necessary”, Jin looked up stroking the other one’s cheek.
“And you don’t feel anything for him anymore?”
“No, definitely not, but I really like him, because we are friends, and nothing more”, Jin smiled brightly and saw Jun trying to smile at him too.
“I am not the jealous type normally, but you looked so familiar and close to each other, it hurt me a little bit”, Jun answered honestly. Jin smiled at him and stroked his face again before he looked up and saw Kame standing in the door frame.
“I think I go now, sorry that I disturbed you”, he said looking at the couple in the kitchen.
“No, Kazu, it’s alright, you really can stay here”, Jun said softly and wanted to walk up to him when he saw him stepping backwards.
“I really don’t want to mix up in your things, Jun, I am not interested in Jin anymore, I just needed a friend, but if you have a problem with me, I am going now”, he said and smiled at the other one before he left the apartment.
“What the hell was this?”, Jun turned around and looked at Jin.
“He is a little bit sensitive about this topic … “, Jin only said and sighed deeply.
“Ryo-chan, what do you want to do now?”, Yoko asked carefully when he saw his friend dressing up for school.
“Nothing, what else”, Ryo said slowly and stared at the other one. He felt a stinging pain in his chest when he thought of meeting Kame in school, but he couldn’t stay at home for another day.
“Ryo-chan…”, Yoko started and tried to reach his best friend with his words, but the other one interrupted him immediately. “Everything is alright, Yoko.”
He knew that Yoko didn’t believe his words and when he thought about it, he knew that nothing was alright. Only the thought of Kame made his heart jump up and down and he felt a joyful feeling in his belly when he felt Kame’s head resting on his chest, or his hands around his waist. He was definitely in love with his student, but he had to accept that it was impossible for them, at least till Kame graduated from school.
“Ryo, maybe you should talk to him again”, Yoko suggested but saw his friend shaking his head energetically.
“Everything is alright”, Ryo said again before they walked out of his apartment.
Ryo breathed in deeply before he walked into the classroom and his first sight fell on the last row where Kame’s place was. He felt a hot wave rushing through his body when he saw that his seat was empty, but he winced and goose bumps appeared when he heard a familiar voice behind him.
“Good morning, sensei”, Kame said and walked up to his place. Ryo couldn’t concentrate on his lesson and let the students make some group work together. He saw Jin, Jun and Kame discussing about something and tried to listen to their talk.
“I am sorry for interrupting you two”, Kame said slowly and looked from Jin to Jun and back. “I didn’t know you are together”, he added and smiled at them.
“Ano, I am sorry Kazu, I was a little bit jealous, because I didn’t know about your and Jin’s past”, Jun said softly and saw Jin twinkling at him.
“I think we all should forget about it”, Jin said and saw Kame smiling brightly at him.
“Ne Jun, we could talk about Jin’s various habits and strong and weak points”, Kame laughed and saw Jin’s dark glance resting on him.
“Oh, yes, you can tell me about his preferences, of you know what I mean…”, Jun grinned brightly.
“Oh, yes I can”, Kame answered and smirked at Jin. He felt a warm feeling rising up in him, at least he had his friends back and maybe he could start new, even he had to go on without his love.
“Don’t dare to conspire with each other against me”, Jin laughed stroking Jun’s hand and poked Kame’s nose playfully. He was glad about them talking to each other and not making a big affair about their past and situation.
Ryo stood on the other side of the room and heard them talking to each other. He saw Kame’s face glancing in the sun and he could still saw the bruises he had from the happenings some days ago. He remembered his heart beat faster when Yuri called him and he thought of the feeling he had right in this moment. He wanted to protect the other one, no matter what that meant for him or them.
Ryo knew he couldn’t resist the other one long, he had to change something, and he had to change it soon. He sighed and got lost in his thoughts. He had to think what he really wanted and how he could solve the situation he was in. With helping Kame he already decided about one thing in his life, but till now he had the chance to step back and forget about the other one. Ryo didn’t know if he really wanted to forget about his student, even though they didn’t even shared a kiss, he felt like Kame belonged to him, and he didn’t know how long he was able to suppress this feeling in him.
The bell rang some time later and Ryo didn’t know how long he stood there, lost in his thoughts, just thinking for a solution. Ryo saw his students walking out of the room, only Kame was still packing his bag, Jun and Jin were already outside to get the best place in the canteen where they wanted to wait for Kame.
“Now or never”, Kame thought and looked up from his bag.
