Resilient Bonds

Unread post by Weonna »

Rekka, the legendary pro wrestler hailing from Mexico, arrived in Japan with an unwavering determination. His purpose? To reunite with his long-time friend and fellow wrestler, Hiro Takahashi, and reminisce about their training and competitive days in Mexico. As he made his way towards Hiro's gym, memories flooded Rekka's mind, transporting him back to the days of sweat and sacrifice they had shared.

Upon entering the gym, Rekka couldn't help but notice the curious gazes directed towards him. After all, it's not every day that a masked Luchador graces the Iron Titans Gym. Determined to find Hiro, he embarked on a quest, exploring every nook and cranny of the gym. However, to his dismay, Hiro was nowhere to be found.

Lost in his thoughts, Rekka accidentally bumped into a woman. Instantly, he apologized with a sincere tone,

"Perdón, señorita."

If the woman turned around, she would be greeted by the sight of Rekka, donning his ring attire, complete with a white athletic jacket and his fiery mask.

Of course, he was not the only the one looking for someone at the gym. The woman that he bumped into was looking for her sister. To this wrestler, she was 5'11 feet tall, with a nice, curve and toned body, tanned skin with fire tattoos running up the left side of her body. Her long hair was tied in a ponytail, but with some of the hair down and covering most of the left side of her face. Her body was covered in her standard wrestling attire that looked like something a barbarian would wear.

Sylva, a.k.a. 'Huntress', was at the gym coming to check in on her sister Fang. She felt the this masked man bump into her and heard him apologize. She turned around to see this guy, but one thing that stood out to her was the mask.

"No problem," Sylva responded, before joking, "Though I guess you're on a mission. Looking for a "bad guy" to beat up?" She figured that this guy was a masked wrestler, but she always did find the masks a bit amusing.

"Actually , Im looking for mi amigo, Hiro Takahashi."

Rekka replied with a chuckle, his eyes twinkling behind his mask.

"I heard he is suppose to be one of the trainers here at this gym. Have you perhaps seen him?"

Sylva raised her left eyebrow a bit in surprise.

"Isn't that a funny coincidence then." Sylva commented, "I am also looking for someone who is with Hiro at the moment." She smirked a bit as she then said, "Guess he'll be getting a pair of visitors."

The two of them were just outside of the room of one the gym managers, Kenzo. Sylva, with this masked wrestler behind her, went to knock on the door. All she knew about Kenzo was that (outside of being a manager at this gym), was that he was a friend of Hiro’s. As such, they figured that Kenzo would know where Hiro (and by extension Fang) was.

Kenzo was cursing under his breath as Hiro Takahashi was refusing to call him back. It had been a month since Kenzo's last interaction with Hiro and ever since Kenzo got between Hiro and his girlfriend, Fang, Hiro was still upset with Kenzo and refused to talk to him.

"何をするつもりですか?(What am I going to do)"

Kenzo sighed as his last couple of calls went directly to Hiro's voice-mail. Kenzo was contemplating whether or not to fire Hiro for not showing up at the Iron Titans Gym, but then again Kenzo knew that this was mostly his fault.

As Kenzo slammed his phone to the desk, he heard a knock on the door and said,

"Come in..."

With a sigh he saw, Sylvia...Fang's sister and behind her was a masked luchador which caught Kenzo by suprize.

"Umm...excuse me but...who are you?"

Kenzo would ask the Luchador that came in his office as Rekka would politely bow and say,

"Hello...my name is Rekka. I came from Mexico to Japan to compete in L.A.W. I also came to see my friend Hiro Takahashi."

"Friend?"

Kenzo looked a bit confused

"Yeah...Me and Hiro trained and competed all the way back in Mexico City"

This seemed like a tense situation for Kenzo. When he faced an unexpected visit from Rekka, a masked luchador and supposes friend of Hiro, Kenzo felt a mix of surprise, confusion, and perhaps even a glimmer of hope for resolving the rift between him and Hiro.

Kenzo, still taken aback by Rekka's sudden appearance, takes a moment to process the information. After a pause, he speaks up.

"Rekka, you say you're a friend of Hiro's? Well, that's unexpected. Hiro hasn't been in touch with me for a while now. I'm... well, I'm glad you're here, though. Maybe you can help me get through to him."

Kenzo gestures for Rekka and Sylvia to take a seat, feeling a renewed sense of determination to mend the relationship with his estranged friend.

"Please, have a seat. I've been trying to reach Hiro for weeks, but he's been avoiding me ever since the incident with Fang. I never meant to come between them, but I fear I have. Do you think you can talk to him? Help him see that I'm genuinely sorry for what happened?"

Meanwhile, Kenzo can't shake off the feeling of regret and concern. He realizes that firing Hiro might not be the solution and that repairing their friendship is the top priority.

"Ummm...S...Sure, I'll give it a try."

Rekka was confused about the whole situation. Normally he would just leave this situation alone since it was none of his business, but for some odd reason, Rekka felt a sense of responsibility.

Kenzo would hand his phone to Rekka and as Rekka dials Hiro's number and the call goes unanswered, Kenzo starts to think about alternative ways to reach out to Hiro. He then makes a suggestion to Rekka.

"Rekka, it seems like Hiro isn't answering your call. Maybe we should try a different approach. Since Hiro hasn't been responsive to my calls, perhaps we could reach out to his girlfriend, Fang. She might have a better chance of getting through to him."

Kenzo quickly pulls out his phone and starts searching for Fang's contact information. After finding it, he hands his phone to Rekka.

"Here, I have Fang's number. Give her a call and see if she can help us get in touch with Hiro. Hopefully, she can convince him to talk to us."

Rekka nods and takes the phone, dialing Fang's number. As the phone rings, Kenzo anxiously waits, hoping that this new approach will finally lead to a breakthrough in reaching Hiro.

Once Sylva and the man she would learn was Rekka entered Kenzo's office she noticed that Kenzo had showed signs of being uneasy. Perhaps it was something work related, people can feel stressed about their job. Based on his glance at her, she figured that he may have recognized who she was. After all, Fang was dating someone who worked at this particular gym. Perhaps she had showed some images of the two of them and that became common knowledge.

Of course she would learn that Rekka came from Mexico, no surprise given the mask and accent, but he too was a friend of Hiro.

Small world, after all. Sylva thought to herself as Rekka explained himself. But then, something interesting, but highly concerning came up. Kenzo had just revealed that he and Hiro had a fall out...and it was because of an incident with Fang.

Now, Sylva could've just chipped in and offered to reach out to Fang, but this whole thing that Kenzo mentioned reeked of dirt.

"Hold that please." Sylva motioned to Rekka to not make the call, "What's this about an incident between you, Hiro and my sister?"

Truth be told, Sylva was not aware of what happened. Either Fang chose not to tell her or simply forgot to mention it to her; having spent her time recovering from her injuries. Being the older sister that she was, she was not happy that someone went after her sister for some reason.

"Care to explain that?" Sylva said, being calm but clearly expressing to Kenzo that she did not like hearing that he did something involving her sister.

"Sylva, I understand your concern, and I want to be upfront with you. The truth is, there was a misunderstanding between Hiro and myself regarding his relationship with Fang. I made a mistake by trying to prevent Hiro from seeing her, and I deeply regret the impact it has had on their relationship and on all of us."


Kenzo takes a deep breath, reflecting what had happened in November.

"I want you to know that I'm committed to making amends and rectifying the situation that I am responsible for...It was wrong of me to interfere in Hiro and Fang's relationship, and I deeply regret it."

Sylva listened to what Kenzo had to say. While Kenzo did admit that he was responsible for causing this rift, Sylva was not entirely sure if he was fully sincere about his remorse or was just looking to get back into Hiro's good graces. Either way, she did not press further on the matter, but she did not fully trust him.

"I guess that explains that little bit of dilemma." Sylva commented, still staying calm, "But you shouldn't have to rely on others to get Hiro to forgive. If you want my advice, he should not be the only one you have to apologize to. Now, if you'll excuse me." Sylva got up and was going to head out the door.

Once she was out of Kenzo's room, Sylva pulled out her phone to text Fang:

Hey sis, just wondering where you are. Give me a quick shout back. was what Sylva had written. She would suspect that it may be a bit before she got a response considering that if Fang was busy, then she was busy.

In the meantime, Sylva would have to consider what to do. She just came here to check up on her sister, but that wasn't happening right now. Plus, she had nothing really to do for a good couple of hours.

As Sylvia made her exit from the office, Kenzo couldn't help but dwell on the mistake he had made.

On the other hand, Rekka, unfazed by the situation, simply shrugged and patiently awaited the arrival of Hiro's girlfriend, Fang, who was expected to answer the phone call. With a hint of uncertainty, Rekka would inquire,

"Hello? Is Hiro available?"

If Fang chose to respond, she would be greeted by the unfamiliar voice of a man who was not Kenzo.

Sylva waited for a few seconds and she got no response. Most likely she was busy at the moment and could not get back. Sylva would wait a bit and ponder. At first, this was to be concerning, but she knew that Fang was with Hiro and there was nothing to worry. She just had to wait until Fang would get back to her.

Meanwhile, there was no response on the phone that Rekka tried when contacting Fang. Given how even Sylva did not get a response, chances were that Fang would not respond immediately to a strange phone call.
