It was no surprsise that she was unable to find where he lived for she has never been there. It would have been up to him to redirect the two to his own home outside of Furinkan that originally mere a train (bus?) stop away, but despite Sybil being there to point out if they had already been in a certain direction, he still managed to get them lost even with her functional map. After all, what good was a map if he couldn't detect his home? For approximately an hour, he lead the Selkie around Furinkan. Despite her attempts to redirect him to his next town, she was eventually lost as well as he attempted to remember the "short cut" to the Hibiki residence. He lead her through bush, forests, people's yards, atop brick walls, and at times even rooftops. As they now stood outside the gate of yet another home, Ryoga growled in frustration.

"This can't be happening!" He exclaimed, exasperated. "We were this close to our goal, but now we can't find the Hibiki residence. Fortunately, we haven't been travelling in circles thanks to your help but the problem we face now is finding the Hibiki residence."

Leaning against the gate they stood in front of, he sighed in defeat. His despair only lasted mere moments, however, before he quickly turned to the map Sybil acquired. He eyed it warily, as if the map was at fault rather than his own lack of direction. "I could have sworn the next turn would have lead us on the right path home..." He muttered, now glaring at the map he held. "Where did I go wrong?"

"Ya went wrong when you trusted your instincts, piggy." A voice called out, taunting him. "You couldn't find your way out've a one-door room if your life depended on it."

Glancing around, Ryoga's head instantly whipped around to glare at a man with a pigtail and eyes glimmering with mischief as he crouched on top of the gate and looked down at them-- it was Ranma Saotome. To an outsider, the man-- Ranma appeared happy to be reunited with the lost boy, and to an extent he was, though only to poke fun at him. Ryoga grimaced in disdain as he pierced the man with another fierce glare.

"I wasn't expecting to see your ugly mug so soon, Ranma!" Ryoga said dryly, his arms crossed as he continued to lock eyes with the smirking man. "Don't you think for a second that I planned to cross paths with you as soon as I returned home! What are you even doing in my hometown anyway, Saotome?"

"...Y'serious?" Ranma asked, staring down at the man increduously. "D'you really not realize where you're standing?"

Ryoga opened his mouth to bark out a retort, however after closer inspection he took notice to the familiar settings. The neighbourhood was familiar, passerbys were vaguely familiar as well... Side-stepping around the gate, he peeked beyond the gateway into the yard and he soon realized where he lead them.

They were at the Tendo residence!

As Ryoga's eyes trailed the familiar sign, his body trembled visibly as his wide eyes stared in disbelief. He couldn't believe it. For what felt like a month of constant travel and trial, his luck had finally changed! He was in Furinkan! Before he could take a step further she quickly dashed in front of him. “Ryoga! We are in great luck! Look, look!” Sybil exclaimed, suddenly taking off running, causing him to break out in a steady jog to follow her to the sign. Pointing to it exitedly, the green-haired Selkie broke into a big smile she began to spin in circles, feeling the happiness in finally accomplishing the goal she had made. They had finally made it! Overcome with happiness, tears began to swell in his eyes. The happiness he felt caused his knees to give out before him, and he fell to the ground. Despite trembling with tears running down his face, the lost boy was visibly happy. Nothing could wipe the goofy, toothy grin off of his face.

“I’m so happy I was able to at least bring you back here. But my promise is still not yet fulfilled! We need to bring you back to your house. It’s not yet time to for us to rejoice till we get back there!” She exclaimed, beaming happily skipping down the road and passed the sign while holding the map. Taken aback, Ryoga blinked and quickly got back to his feet. Scanning their area, he realized that he overshot his own hometown for miles! Tch, another bump in the road; he shouldn't have been surprised. Still, he had Sybil to help him redirect their path to his own home. It was a bump in the road, yet it was miniscule! Happily, Ryoga grinned widely as he jogged after her.

The week that was spent travelling home went excruciatingly slow. Even when he travelled alone the silence didn't weigh heavily in the air. The lack of conversation was apparent to him; the martial artist couldn't remember the last time prior to the incidents where they were quiet in each other's silence. It wasn't just the quiet that he noticed. With the exception of making small-talk, the normally friendly Selkie kept to herself in more than one way. Never again did she attempt to hold onto his arm, nor did she try to entwine her fingers with his own. There were times where he would notice the proximity of their distance would close, only for her to distance herself when their arms grazed one another while walking. There were times where he could swear that he felt the warmth of her hands hovering near his, yet when he turned to look at her, there wasn't a sign of such a thing happening. Another thing he noticed was the quality of his sleep. He had no idea if there was any connection with her sudden detatchment and his sleep, but he noticed that his ability to keep warm during the night had decreased as well.

Finally, for what felt like an eternity to him as well... they stood before a sign that lifted a weight from his shoulders; "Furinkan".

Although much of his experienced heartbreak was self-inflicted, Ryoga knew the pain of it all. He was the reason for the Selkie's suffering and pain, yet he could truly empathize with the feeling of unrequited love. The fighter watched several times before as the love of his life blushed, risked her life, reacted jealously, cried, and even smiled for a man that wasn't him. No matter how hard or how desperately he tried to make her see him in another light, she had eyes for another. He always knew that she did; even a slow-witted man like himself noticed her obvious infatuation with him, no matter how he tried not to. There were times where he truly thought he was moving on. Countless times did he try to forget about her, yet no matter how many women confessed their love (technically there were only two, but it didn't matter if there were only two or a harem), his mind eventually wandered to Akane, and his hope was renewed. It was ironic that the one time he wasn't trying to run away and move on did he manage to break yet another heart. He was worse than Saotome. Suddenly two arms wrapped around him, encircling his waist. The gesture was warm and soothing, but it reminded him that he had just shed unmanly tears in front her. He was so damn sensitive! Hastily, he wiped away any trace of the tears he shed and succumbed to the need to fidget with his hands nervously. "Sorry for that." He mumbled sheepishly as his fingers fiddled with one another. “Please, calm down. I don’t want you to feel such grief. Please forgive my foolishness… I had not realize how I felt, caused you to suffer.” He heard her soft, questionably calm voice attempting to soothe him, but only resulted in him blinking in confusion. As her words sunk in, he wondered if what he told her even got through to her. How did she not see that he was the cause of his own discomfort? Why did everything she say seem to miss the whole point of everything he was trying to tell her?! She acted as if he was rejecting her, as if it was a simple matter of refusing to give her what she wanted! “Forget what I told you, my feelings, and my heart. I won’t allow them to be a burden to you anymore.”

Her promise to not burden him caused Ryoga to bristle in frustration, and he pried himself out of her grasp to turn towards her. "It's not like that!" He exclaimed as he desperately tried to think of a way to make her understand. "Listen! I--" Ryoga trailed off at a thought that came to mind, and he closed his mouth. Did he really have any right to say anything to her about the matter? It wasn't his intention to hurt her, but he did. What significance would it have for a man to try and defend his wrongdoings when he did nothing but lead her on? It wasn't his intention to lead her on, yet that was what it all came down to. Whether he liked it or not, or if he even realized it would happen, the nature of their relationship would be different with her promise of change and his silence. Turning away from him, she quickly informed him that it would be best to resume their journey and began to leave him behind. Silently, he nodded and followed behind. Upon hearing her last proclamation for the day, his fists clenched wearily despite the tremble of body.

“Fate… it truly does hate Selkies.”

With all the new students scattering away except the Paws Kamiko chuckled "Welp, now that's been dealt with. Glad I'd never have to see those prudes in the PAW Patrol community." Kamiko said as her and Shinji left to their homeroom. Hanging out with a group of delinquents peeping on girls during lunch break Kamiko was ultimately a Gang Leader since she never participated in the School community she and her gang would hangout under a tree located at the pool, the enjoyment of seeing girls in their swimsuits were always a great thing. Kamiko and her groupie would always stare at the girls passing by "Hey Boss! Look there's a good angle!" one of Kamiko's lackey pointed out, Kamiko taking multiple pictures she smiled widely as she sat back down on the bench and went through the pictures. "Yahoo, that one will sell nicely!" Kamiko said as the others giggled like mischievous high school girls. Shinji nervously rubbed the back of his neck "You guys always do this its kinda wrong you know karma is going to bite come back and bite you." Kamiko then hopped up and patted Shinji's back "Its okay! I'm a girl too and I can say for them all, they're cool with it so no bad karma will come!--" but before she could say anything a dog snatched her camera and tore it up. Kamiko blinked a couple of times trying to get her falling into a spiral of despair Kamiko held up her camera all teary at Shinji "I-I told you so." Shinji said "Fix it!" Kamiko demanded but since Shinji had no idea how a camera even works he suggested to her "Why don't we head up to that Media club place? They probably know how to fix your camera i-its not that torn up." "Great idea Shinji! Unimportant side characters you guys stay here! Me and Shinji are heading up to the club" Kamiko said "Roger!" one of the delinquents said and so with that being said Kamiko and Shinji headed up to the club. She held onto her camera dearly as she knocked on the door to the club "Hello?" Kamiko said as she slides the door open to see the club members.

"Like I told you, I've tried before to find love in the past. There are times where I thought I found it; times where I came close to achieving that happiness but every time it ended in the same results. I had never been loved before, yet when the opportunity arised, my inexperience merely hurt the women that dared to love someone like me. I don't want to be lonely, yet every chance at finding love ended in failure. Even when I tried to pursue a woman, it turned that I couldn't even show her in the right way how much I loved her without putting her life in danger!"

"How can I give you something that has eluded even me? How can I give you something that I have never been able to hold on to? How can I even think of hurting you worse than I have hurt myself and those who selflessly tried to give themselves to me?!"

A fist slammed against the tree, leaving yet another indent in the majestic giant. Breathing heavily, his eyes stared into the distance at something that wasn't there as frustrated tears ran down his face. His strong body trembled with the emotions he didn't realize he held onto for so long. His face was contorted with grief and shame; it was obvious that his outburst was not aimed at the Selkie, but rather to himself. Though much of his pain was self-inflicted, his suffering was very much real. Months (or perhaps even years) of bitterness, shame, loneliness and self-loathing came out all at once, leaving the martial artist a distraught mess.

"I-I'm not asking you to leave." Ryoga told her timidly as he was now fidgeting with his hands, a nervous tendency he picked up when placed in situations similar to then. "Now that I know what a Selkie is, as well as their, ah.. purpose, as you put it, a lot of things that you've told me are starting to make sense, but even with all of that information, I still don't know what to do with it.. I'm still so lost, but I wouldn't ask you to leave regardless of my confusion."

He felt the heat spread across his face and travel down his neck. Hastily, the martial artist turned from her due to his growing embarrassment. Now facing a nearby tree, his fingers began to fidget with its bark while he tried to gather his scattered thoughts. "I'm not a smart man, and there's many things that I don't know and have experienced firsthand. I have spent years of my childhood and teenage years alone, and because of that I have lived a lonely existence." He mumbled as he continued to pick at the bark. With each passing second, the intensity of his fidgeting increased until he was nervously poking holes in the poor tree as he continued to fumble for words. "I've spent a good fraction of my life trying to ease my loneliness through several methods. I attempted to concentrate on my studies for a brief time before I eventually worked to strive in the world of fighting. I-I even tried to f-find love.... yet everything I tried failed. I was still lonely and I was still alone no matter what I did!" He exclaimed heatedly, and his fidgeting came to a brief stop.

As quickly as his outburst unfolded, he returned to the timid and flustered mess he was prior, his fidgeting resuming as all. "Admittedly, I haven't felt lonely in awhile since you have joined in me in my travels. For the short time that we have known each other, I have grown to value you more than I value my own lonely being."

The fidgeting stopped suddenly, and his hands fell to his sides. He paused, falling silent before he turned back to her. Ryoga gazed at her solemnly, the corners of his mouth turning down to form a guilt-ridden frown as he did so. "You have been one of the limited amount of women that have deigned to love a lonely man such as myself." He said gently, his eyes intense as they stared into her own. "...For that, I am humbled. There are several things that I am grateful for, and there are many things that I wish to give you in return. I want to try." Ryoga's eyes left hers and suddenly trailed down to her lips, though only for a brief moment before he turned away shamefully. "I want to try so desperately to give you what you want...Yet, as much as I want to give you everything, I don't think I can."

Her soft-spoken words stopped all thought in his head, and the lost traveller looked up at her with wide eyes. All the negative thoughts that ran through his mind ceased to exist the second he seen the sincerity etched in her eyes. Concerns regarding whether or not he was an obligation disappeared when he realized that despite her purpose as a Selkie, her feelings were anything but half-hearted. Even if their time time together was short, even someone as clueless as he could recognize her inability to lie. Everything about her was passionate, perhaps too passionate to pull off a believable lie.

"I finally understood how a true Selkie feels. The pain of this passionate and loving desire, but unable to see it returned; at least not truly returned.”

Ryoga stared at her numbly, still stunned even when she took his hands in her own. When her words processed was when he truly felt guilty. Not once did he give her a straight answer in regards to how he felt upon learning of her feelings, but he truly didn't know how he felt. Although it wasn't a true rejection on the fighter's part, it was devastating nonetheless to a being who knew exactly what she wanted. “Even when I fell in love with you, I knew I would have to leave your side. May it be by my cursed fate, or you no longer desiring a Selkie to accompany you.” She murmured tearfully, the usual glint of happiness within in her eyes completely gone as it was soon replaced with grief-stricken tears. The thought of parting ways with the clueless man was too much for the Selkie to bear, and the tears fell freely down her face. “The thought of no longer feeling the roughness of your hands, to be near you, wake up and see your face, hear the sound of your voice, the warmth of being in your arms… I couldn’t bear the thought of being without you. I had purposely abandoned Ireland, my family, the sea… I did it so I could stay with you!” Her body was trembling again yet she still mustered the strength to carry on, “Your kindness, your strength, your determination, every imperfect feature… it’s pure perfection to my heart; I love you for existing. If being by your side means I abandoned what it means to be a Selkie and the purpose I have, I will continue to abandon it all for you. Just let me stay; please let me stay.”

Sybil's attempts to show him how she felt went not in vain. The Selkie before him was nearly hysterical as she plead for him to let her stay, yet it wasn't the sight of her tears that made him believe the truth behind it; it was the sincerity of her words that moved him. Touched by her words, Ryoga too felt tears well up in his own eyes, though he wasn't surprised to feel them there. Emotionally fragile, it didn't take a large amount of effort to move Ryoga to tears. Kindness and compassion came scarce at best for the lost traveler, if either was shown to him at all. When any hint of consideration was shown for him, he was grateful. The very thought of someone caring for the lonely man was enough to bring him to tears. He appreciated the sentiment behind it all, and he couldn't help but be moved when anyone's heart of gold was presented to him in any way! Hastily, Ryoga wiped away his tears and turned his gaze back to her thoughtfully. He looked into her eyes quietly for several moments before breaking down into a heated blush. Within seconds, his expression quickly changed from sentimental and emotional to a state that was nearly second nature for him- shy and flustered. In his mind, who could really blame him? In the midst of being touched by her sweet words, he realized none too quickly (as usual) that she loved him. She loved him for what he was, imperfections or not!
