~~~Arc 3 - Chapitre 22 - Phantom~~~

"Is that so ? I see." The man sighed deeply as he listened to what the other speaker said from the phone. "I understand. I will take care of it here." The caller was about to call when the man stopped him. "Hey, thank you for everything. I don't know what to do without you."

The man put back the phone as he leaned back on his seat with a long sigh.

"We're finally at this point." He whispered softly.

"What are you going to do now ?" Another man spoke as he approached him from the corner.

"Well, for starter, I will have to look at that candidates to replace him as the Captain." The first man pulled out a file from inside the drawer. "He will have to let go whether he wants it or not, and take over the throne which was left behind."

"This is not how it usually is." The second man commented as he casually sat down on the chair opposite of the first man.

"We're only a small part of a greater world, Snake-kun. And it's our duty to keep the balance between the two parts, after all." The first man spoke as he scanned through the files.

"I know. It's just still feel, weird somehow." Snake gave a shrug as he watched the other man reading dutifully. "And really, is there really a need to read through those ? As far as I know, we only have one person who is just right to replace the boy."

"Indeed." The other man agreed. "But I still have to find the one who is going to replace his position."

A sigh came out from Snake's lips. "Suit yourself, Val."

***

The Yamadas came home the next day after Yamada Haruhiko's death. Apparently, Yuu had found the man's body floating about a few kilometres from where he fell. The family is shaken, but they took it better.

They held the funeral a week after their arrival back in Japan, and made an official statement that his death was purely accidental, in which Haruhiko, fell off of the cliff when visiting the church. The family meeting is also being held at the same day, to decide whether Yuya will take the place of the Lead of the Yamadas, a fixed one this time, or whether they will have Ryosuke to take the place.

Ryosuke tell the whole family, that he will take the responsibility and be the Lead of the Yamadas, under one condition: That he will only be one after he turned into the legal age of 20. For the time being, Yuya will continue his role as the temporal Lead. Everyone had agreed to his decision, and thus the meeting is dismissed. His grandfather from his Mother's side told him that the family will have to make a proper announcement later on, to make sure that no one will take advantage of the situation and take over the Yamada Corp.

Ryosuke gave his consent and told him that he will leave it to the rest of them while he himself will take care of other things first before he took the throne.

The press conference is being held two days after Haruhiko's funeral, in which the family stated the current Leader of Yamada Corp, and that Yuya will be the temporal Lead until the official Leader turned into a legal age. Ryosuke said mostly nothing during the conference, only commenting when he was asked and let the speaker speak on his behalf. Despite agreeing to the decision himself, as expected he still has worries and doubts. Especially because he knows he still have to settle things up with Black Saint.

A sigh came out from his lips as he quit the conference hall. He still has long on his list.

Fixing on his vest for the last time, Keito make sure that he looked presentable before he knocked on the wooden door, waiting for the cue to enter the room. As a soft 'Welcome in' came from behind the door, he slowly turned the doorknob and invite himself in.

"I'm sorry to have you waiting, Sir." He told the man while giving a polite bow.

"I'm not waiting that long, Phantom-kun." The man said. "Please, have a seat."

He then proceeded to walk to the chair pointed by the man and took his sit.

"What can I help you with, Sir ?" He asked the man, waiting for him to give his order.

"I'm not going to run around the bush, Phantom-kun." He started off. "As you have already know yourself, about the history of the Yamada family and their current situation, it is impossible for Zero-kun -who we all also know as Yamada Ryosuke-kun, to continue his position as the Eastern Gatekeeper for he will take over his father's place as the Lead of Yamada Corp- and also as the King of The Upperworld. As the King, he may not be involved with the Underworld more than he already did, that's why I was forced to terminate him from his current position as the Eastern Gatekeeper of Black Saint."

A frown is formed on Keito's face. "Are you trying to say that- ?"

"Yes, Phantom-kun. From now on, I appointed you as the new Eastern Gatekeeper of Black Saint. I've known you enough to believe that you will do this job just fine. You've proven enough." The man smiled as he told him. "As for your past position, I will appoint Luna as the new Vice of the Eastern Gate. As much as the the potential the Twins have, they are too hard to separate and we can't have two people as the Vice. As for Luna's ex-position, you are free to maintain them in any way you want."

For a moment, Keito said nothing as his mind is filled with many thoughts.

"Sir, are you sure about this ? I mean, are you sure with me being the succesor of Zero-Taichou ? I'm sure you have heard of my bloodline and all." He voiced out his worry.

"Yes, I have." The man leaned back on his chair. "But that doesn't change the fact that you're still a valuable member of Black Saint. And as far as I know, you are a loyal one. Your bloodline has no meaning here."

"But-"

"You should just believe in yourself, Phantom-kun. I've spoken with Zero-kun myself about this matter and he had bragged much about how you will be a great Captain." The man winked at him. "People are putting their faith in you, that's why you should have faith in yourself, too."

"I, I understand, Sir." Keito nodded his head, finally receiving his new title.

"People said we are nothing but a dirty worker, but I beg to differ." The man suddenly said. "We might be doing what society calls a taboo, but we're doing them with a a very good reason, in hope that we're doing this world a favor. That's why we should be proud of who we are and do our job with our head held high."

A smile is formed on Keito's lips at the words. The words sure had hit him hard.

"I will do my best from now on, too, Sir." He stood from his chair and gave the man a bow. "Please guide me well, Mr. Valentine."

Apparently, Ryosuke is waiting for him all along outside the door, because the moment he exit the room, he's suddenly face-to-face with his Captain. Well, ex-Captain now. An apologetic smile is being sent as Ryosuke scratch his head nervously.

"Uhm, so, how was it ?" He asked hesitantly.

"Nothing much." Keito shrugged. "Just being promoted to be the Captain. Hooray for me !"

An almost invisible pout is forming on Ryosuke's lips before he dropped his face.

"I'm sorry. It was selfish of me to agree to their decision." Ryosuke spoke ever-so-softly. "I should've consulted to you first."

"It's not like it's going to change anything, Ryosuke." Keito shook his head with a sigh. And as the frown on Ryosuke's face is getting deeper, he gave the young man an affectionate ruffle. "I never say I don't like it, you know."

"But it seems like I'm running away from my responsibility and simply thrust them on you !" Ryosuke protested.

"Aren't you always ?" He teased, and Ryosuke didn't even bother to hide his pout this time. "It's okay, Ryosuke. We all understand. If anything, you just throw yourself into bigger problem now."

"I'll manage." The young man said half-heartedly.

"Of course you will." Keito nodded his head as he lead the man away. "At the very least, we won't have to worry much if one of your rival decided to give you a midnight visit. Though it's still worrying knowing your history and all."

"You make it as if I'm a magnet of trouble." Complained Ryosuke from behind him.

"You are." He nodded curtly.

"Hey !" A light punch is landed on his shoulder and he broke into a laugh, which is followed soon by Ryosuke himself.

"Thank you, Keito." Ryosuke said after sometimes.

"For what ?" He throw the man a side glance.

"For always being there for me." Ryosuke said, voice so serene and soft. "I was too busy pitying myself all this time that I missed how much I am cared off by the people around me. And among everyone, you have been the one who stood by my side the most, always lending me a shoulder when I need it most. I was blind for not noticing how much you meant to me."

Keito halted in his steps as he turned to face Ryosuke properly, who is sending him the gentlest smile he ever seen.

"Thank you, my brother."
