At first, Godai wasn’t going to come back.
He still had nightmares. He still thought about the people he couldn’t save, and the people he could hurt, if he wasn’t careful.
The plan had been to return to Japan only when he was truly happy (because after everything Ichijou had gone through, he didn’t deserve anything less).
He wanted to be someone that Ichijou could rely on again, trust again.
But time passed, and he wasn’t happy. At all.
Godai moved to his left so a small group of high schoolers could get to the campus on time. He wasn’t magically happy and cheerful again. But not every memory of Japan was a bad one.
This was where he’d grown up with his sister, and met his favorite teacher. And this was where Ichijou lived.
