What is one thing you regret doing in the last year?

Regrets. You know I don't do regrets. Yeah, there was a lot I should have done differently but do I regret it. No.

All right. So that was a lie. I regret not being strong enough.

I regret not going to see my old teammates when we went back to Okinawa during the last Tsunami. I regret not planning more and getting put into this condition. I regret not telling you about...certain things...sooner. But I can't dwell on those or I'll never move forward.

I already spoke to Genichirou about this. I might have to resign from the police. It's not something I ever wanted to do. But I just got back from the doctor. They've told me...well... even with more surgeries on my shoulder... I've never going to be the same. The bullet shattered too much in there, tore too much. I don't know if I can perform my duties. I'm useless to SWAT and I don't know how useful I'll be in Organized crime sitting behind a desk.

I don't want to give up. That's not who I am some annoying know-it-all blond reminded me. But I also know I can't run from reality. My reality is that I've lost the use of my right arm other than for the most simple of actions and motions.

It's hard to believe that last year, I saw snow for the first time. Mostly because I'm sure right now, Genichirou is laughing at me because I haven't moved away from the window. I've been watching it come down since it started. It's simply beautiful. I just wish it wasn't so cold.

It's much harder than I initially thought it would be. Genichirou's grandfather is cutting me zero slack. It doesn't matter that I'm down an arm. He says I'm still capable so I better work hard and that he expects a lot of his grandson's fiance.

....He's called me that before. It's nice but also sort of strange. I don't know where he got that idea from, as neither of us have proposed. I don't feel like arguing with him though. I doubt I'd win even if I tried. So I'll just leave it be.

The doctors have finally been convinced to let me go home. I have a laundry list of rules I have to follow. Things I can and can't do until they say otherwise. I have a schedule of physio that looks more like my old basic training schedule. And I have a rough idea of what to expect in the future. It's...bleak but I won't let it stay that way.

Thanks to Genichirou, I get a few hours on a laptop a day. The doctors won't let me have more than that. They also seem to want to pump me up on painkillers but I've been refusing them. I don't want them. I want them to tell me the real damage. They refuse to tell me how long it'll take me to recover. They refuse to tell me when I'll gain feeling back in my right hand. When I'll be able to move it again. I want them to tell me.

Also, before I forget. I've appreciated the visits I've gotten. My two best friends. Even my baby sister. Chidori visits almost every other day. She's actually talking to me again. Getting shot is a small price to pay if this is what I get for it.

Please be careful on the streets at night. There has been a rise of organized crime recently. Don't go out alone if you can help it and if you see anything or hear anything, please report it to your nearest koban. I promise you that we are doing everything we can to make sure that our streets are safe.

Tetsuya. Rin. Thanks for helping me out. I know it was a bit out there as a favor so I owe you one. However, I didn't manage to get pass the boss. I learned something new about Genchirou, so I can say it wasn't a total waste of time and effort on your parts.

We'll just have to go about getting that guy a different way. Because something needs to be done.
captain_kite: (cencorded)
I can't too open here because I don't want to tip anyone off, but I'll be doing something soon. I have some information I need to check on.

My computer issues are finally fixed. It took longer than I wanted. Good thing too, as there's a lot of things coming from Okinawa about work that I really can't talk about. Suffice to day that those living in Osaka, please be careful. If you can help it, don't walk around in places you don't know alone at night. If you see anything out of place, report it immediately.

In other news, October 14th is Naha’s annual Otsunahiki. It's a giant tug of war. I remember those days when me and mine would pick a side and pull with all our mights. With Higa on the rope, whatever side we picked won. I wonder if present day Higa keeps the tradition.

I was informed today that I was hacked. I didn't notice anything different. I apologize for anyone that might have been gotten by the hackers. I have changed my passwords and I'll be more diligent in the future.

I got a call from my mom today with some "good news". It seems Chiodori has gotten engaged to one of the Tanishi boys. My little sister is going to get married to one of Kei's younger brothers. I won't allow it! Anyone. Anyone but one of those runts! Think of your career, Chi-chan! That family breeds like rabbits! Ballet is your love. Okinawa is your love. Kei's third youngest brother is NOT. It hurts. It hurts that she wouldn't tell me about it herself. It hurts that she still hates me after so long.

an email

I need to talk with Genichirou soon. I received an email from a station up in Hokkaido. Normally, they would send requests through the superintendent. Somehow, this one got sent directly to me. They want to borrow me to assist in some training exercises. There is also a small mention about me going undercover up there for a little bit.

I know I need to let him know they tried to get around him and appeal to my personal professional pride. Honestly, I'd rather not go. Hokkaido is cold. But if it's good for our station and interoffice politics and helps Genichirou look good as a new commanding officer, then I'll go

The typhoon made a real mess of things down there. I am glad I went. My parents were fine and the house was too. My sister, she hurt her ankle pretty badly though and won't be dancing for a while, according to my parents, since she's still not talking to me.

The dojo though... It was almost utterly destroyed. My sensei survived it, but the storm took out a lot of that old place. He said that maybe it was a sign to close up and stop. He's not getting any younger. But I know he was just saying that so we wouldn't be troubled.

Too bad. I spent most of the time down there putting things back together. My dojo will live on to fight another day.

But now it's back to work. I think my paperwork bred while I was away. I can't see the bottom of my desk.

Typhoon Neoguri slammed into Okinawa yesterday. It got hit pretty hard. Sustained wind of 79 mph and a peak gust of 118 mph. 27 inches of rain in the last day. Widespread power outages. Even more damage. I can't contact my family as cell service is down due to the storm.

I need to go home.

That means it's time to break out the goya recipes. Genichirou, don't worry, I won't make you eat any. It's just too bad we can really grow it here. I think I'm going to start my summer right, with a traditional stir fry. Then it's off to work. I'm pulling a few night shifts for a while.
captain_kite: (hair down)
I know I just said it in person, but I'll say it again. Happy birthday, Genichirou.
captain_kite: (cencorded)
As you all know, Genchirou's birthday is coming up. By now, everyone should have invitations. Please keep it on the down low as it's supposed to be a surprise party. This is just a reminder that it's tomorrow night at Yukimura's place. I hope everyone can still make it.
captain_kite: (he kicks high)
The World Martial Arts tournament was intense. Especially my final bout in full contact. The karate world champion wasn't champion for nothing. He hit hard. But in the end, the dark horse from Okinawa pulled out a victory. He wants to spar with me again sometime and says that I need to keep his trophy warm because he'll be taking it back next year. I think not. I think this is going to live with me until I'm as old as my sensei.

The downside is that I get to return to duty looking like I was hit by a semi, repeatedly. Though at the same time, you should see the other guy.

I'll need to thank Genichirou's grandfather for allowing me to swing by and borrow his dojo and himself for practice.
