mais la vie sépare ceux qui s'aiment
tout doucement
sans faire de bruit
et la mer efface sur le sable
les pas des amants désunis


Been listening to Yves Montand to get into the melancholic mood, while waiting for my character's death scene to get set up again (is that spoilers? Am I allowed to say that? I mean, on this show, the villain dies every season, so it's not a surprise really, but does it still count as a spoiler?).

The script isn't all that sad, but continuously dying at different angles is actually pretty emotional. I've died twenty times today already, and I'm set to die another fifty more XD It's pretty tiring. I wasn't expecting it at all. All I'm doing is collapsing a few times per take. Minoru tells me that I'm such a fail that I can't even die properly, because the director usually has to tell me to look less pained when I die. I find that somewhat amusing :D

I...I won't be participating in the first half of the tennis season this year. Maybe longer. I'm sorry Tezuka, it looks like our showdown may have to be delayed for a while yet. And I'm sorry to you Echizen, Kazuya, since I won't be able to have any official rematches with you two either.

I suppose I owe an explanation for this. It seems auto-immune disorders run in the family. My little sister Minoru has Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis. I knew there was something wrong with her! I just knew it! And it turns out she wasn't telling me this at all. I had to find out the hard way when she just collapsed in the middle of the street. I took her to the hospital and she was already a regular patient and everyone knew her by name just like they knew me. Imagine my surprise when they told me it was getting worse by the day and she is very likely to not be able to walk soon.

My parents can't look after her; they weren't even able to tell that there was something wrong with her in the first place. They were barely around when I was a kid and in the hospital, what's going to guarantee they'll be around for a quasi-adult? She needs someone more reliable to be there for a while, somebody who'll always be there. Or else you just go....utterly mad in a hospital when you can't do anything. You really do.

And it was a difficult decision to make...but I'm no longer the kid from ten years ago, who valued tennis above people. My family comes first. So, I'm sorry. I'll be back in Tokyo earlier than I expected. Minoru'll be living with me now. And I won't be leaving Japan for tournaments for quite a while. Not until she feels more comfortable about living with it. Since there's no cure for it.

I'm cutting out my ranting for those who don't want to read it. )

Well done, Kazuya-kun. It was a brilliant game. You've really improved since we last played. Good job upon winning the US Open. I look forward to playing with you again.

I'll be back in Japan tomorrow. Yukari-chan, Kura, would you like to go out on Wednesday?

Liliadent-kun, Akaya, sorry for not providing you with a good show. But thank you for coming out to support me. I hope you had an amazing time in America.

And Atobe..? Thanks for the invitation. I think I'll take you up on that.
