Chapter 516: Shishio: “Why are you here?”
Tokyo was, without a doubt, a crowded city.
There were tens of millions of people in this city.
Of course, it didnt mean those people stayed in the same place. Instead, they spread to many parts of this city.
However, on certain occasions, millions of people could be seen, especially at the train station, which was the main means for the people in Tokyo to transport from one place to another.
While there might not be a million, the number of people at the station today was certainly quite a lot.
However, those people seemed to be attracted by something and often hit against each other because their attention was robbed by this certain someone.
While they felt embarrassed, they kept glancing again, especially those women and girls, since it was their first time seeing someone so handsome. Some of them might try to approach him, but somehow, they were afraid someone might take advantage, so at this moment, no one dared to approach him, and they just kept watching from the distance.
Shishio was standing, leaning behind the pillar beam of the station while reading literature from this world. While the title was quite different, somehow, he felt he was reading a book from Akutagawa Ryunosuke. It was well-written, easy to read, and it was a perfect book to spend his time waiting for someone.
While reading, his mouth squirmed from time to time since the sarcasm in the story was quite interesting, and it was hard for him to hold his laugh, but at the same time, he wondered why the people in this country loved to use a train instead of an airplane.
However, Shishio could only say it was probably because of the price and the safety of the train, making people love a train more than an airplane, especially when the distance between Kyoto and Tokyo could be reached within two hours and twenty minutes with Shinkansen.
Still, Shishio knew the importance of the certain someone he was waiting for, so he had been here half an hour ago. He, who always had to do everything efficiently, clearly showed that this persons importance was more than his way of life.
Shishio waited until the announcement that the train he had been waiting for had arrived. Then, he moved closer, without hesitation, so the people he was waiting for could see him. His tall figure was quite imposing, and with his appearance, he attracted everyones attention.
It wasnt a moment later that someone called him out.
His eyes quickly attracted a beautiful lady in a white lady suit, dragging a huge suitcase.
While she was in her 40s, she was as beautiful as ever, showing how much she cared about her beauty, yet at the same time, her face showed a coldness that made people move away from her, giving her a space whenever she walked. Her long purple hair was tied in a bun, so it wouldnt bother her when she walked, and it also eased her from the hot temperature of the city.
However, the icebergs face quickly melted when she saw him.
“Mom.” Shishio smiled gently and subconsciously showed a happy expression when he saw his mother for the first time in a while.
Shishios mother hugged him without hesitation and even left her suitcase since it had been a while for her to see him.
Shishio also didnt think too much and hugged his mother back.
However, while the two didnt mind, the people around them looked at them with weird expressions. After all, no one would expect the people that this handsome young man had been waiting for would be this beautiful mature lady. Yet, somehow in their minds, a plot that shouldnt appear in reality happened. They thought this young man was the cheating partner of this beautiful mature lady.
Still, when they squinted their eyes, they sighed in relief. After all, they saw seven points of similarity between the two, and some of them even heard how Shishio called the beautiful mature lady “mom,” they quickly understood the relationship between the two was a mother and a son.
Still, whether it was Shishio or his mother, neither of them cared about what the people around him thought.
“Wait a moment, mom. Ill get your suitcase. Tokyo is different from Kyoto after all, and someone might steal your suitcase if you just leave it in the middle of the street.” Shishio let go of his mothers embrace, yet he could still smell the scent of her perfume on his body. If it was another woman, he might have reacted, but this was his mother, so he didnt show much of a change in his expression.
Shishios mother didnt say anything and watched her son, bringing her suitcase with a complicated gaze. She knew she should be happy when he had graduated from his delusional syndrome, but she also felt conflicted when she saw his change.
She could tell Shishio didnt mimic a certain anime character. Instead, it might be the real him, and it made her chest suffocate, feeling the son she had cared for had flown somewhere to a faraway place.
She knew she should be happy, but the feeling of being a mother was complicated.
However, she must admit, his sons body was good, and she wondered what he had been doing in Tokyo for the past months.
Still, she also had many things to complain about, like how he didnt go home during Golden Week.
She thought she also needed to talk with her little sister since she was afraid her little sister might make a move on her son because of how thirsty she was.
Chihiro: “I did.”
However, how could Chihiro admit that?
It was also because of this reason when Shishio picked his mother up, the people in the Sakurasou were strangely solemn, and no one dared to break the silence since, from what they had heard from Chihiro, they knew how strict her older sister was.
If her older sister was angry, she could destroy this place directly, which somehow frightened many people, especially Shiina, Nanami, Ritsu, and even Misaki.
Shiina was strangely quiet and just sat in seiza, even if her legs were numb.
On the other hand, Misaki even wore a kimono and acted like a graceful lady.
Nanami and Ritsu were much calmer since they only read a book on the side, yet they didnt realize their books were upside down at this moment.
Chihiro looked at the four of them speechlessly, but she didnt say anything and just sipped her alcohol, so when her older sister came, she didnt need to be sober and pretended to sleep since she must admit she was scared of her older sister!
Chihiros face turned crimson when she recalled what she had done with Shishio that time.
Chihiro shook her head and hoped nothing was going to happen.
Now, back to Shishio again, and after he had brought his mothers suitcase, he asked, “Do you want to go to Sakurasou to rest?”
“No.” Shishios mother shook her head without hesitation. “Lets walk around the city. It has been a while since I have been in Tokyo. Lets walk together.” She linked her arm around his sons arm without hesitation. “Also, I wont stay in Sakurasou.”
“…Then where are you going to stay?” Shishio asked, but frankly, he didnt really want his mother to stay in Sakurasou, especially when there was a pervert there.
“Your grandfather has a hotel, right? Lets stay there.” Shishios mother said naturally.
Even if his grandfather was a general, he also had a business, and that business was a hotel. The hotel had a good reputation and was often used by officials, business associates, or other businessmen during the trip.
In other words, it was good business.
However, this wasnt the thing that shocked him.
“Huh? Am I also going to stay?” Shishio was dumbfounded.
“Are you going to leave your mother alone?”
‘Youre not a child. Shishio thought, but he shrugged his shoulders, then said, “Well, I dont bring my uniform.”
“You can ask Roberta to send your uniform to you.”
Shishio looked at his mother and thought she might know a lot more about him, but she didnt mention anything to avoid awkwardness.
‘Or she might not know anything?
Shishio wasnt sure and just didnt think too much before he accompanied his mother to walk around Tokyo for a trip.
It might be too late to say this, but his mother was also Chihiros older sister. Her appearance was slightly similar to Chihiros, but there was a slight difference. As for who was more beautiful, it was hard to say.
Before, she was called Sengoku Shioriko, but now, she is called Oga Shioriko.
Still, it was impossible for Shishio to call his mother by her first name. After all, she was his mother.
The two went to the department store and entered the most famous pastry store.
“Whats with that expression?” Shioriko looked at her son, whose lips twitched when he saw her ordering many western pastries.
“No, but can you eat all of them? You have ordered so much,” Shishio said speechlessly since his mother had ordered so much.
“Its okay. If I cant eat them, you can finish it.” Shioriko rubbed her sons arm and said, “You might seem healthier now, but you should eat more.”
“Its also rare for me to be in Tokyo, so lets just have fun, alright? Also, tell me many things you have done after youre here,” Shioriko said while eating her cake.
“Well, I dont mind, but before that…” Shishio took his phone and told everyone that he wasnt going to go home.
On the other hand, Chihiro, who received his phone call, was dumbfounded, and her legs were weak, but when she heard the content of his call, her lips twitched, and she just nodded.
However, her words caused everyones attention to turn toward her.
“Whats wrong, Chihiro-sensei?” Misaki asked after Chihiro ended the call.
“Shishio wont go home, and hes going to stay with his mother,” Chihiro said with a sigh of relief since she didnt need to meet her older sister.
Hearing the news, they felt so complicated somehow.
Coming back to Shishio, he talked about many things with his mother. He knew that his mother wouldnt stay too long in Tokyo and would go back tomorrow after the teacher-parent meeting. After all, his father would miss her if she was gone too long.
Frankly, the relationship between his mother and father was so good that he didnt think it would be weird if suddenly he heard the news he had a new sibling or something. However, he felt instead of having a small sibling. They might receive grandchildren first.
It was just they didnt expect someone would interrupt them when they talked to each other.
Shishio turned, and his lips twitched, but if someone looked closely at his face, they could see he was stunned, and there was one question that appeared clearly on his face even if he didnt say anything.
‘Why are you here?
