Akito is on her deathbed, and she calls the Zodiac members and Tohru together for one last goodbye.
Waiting With Patience for the Spring
Yuuri was a Sohma. Legally, his last name was Katsuki, but he was a Sohma. This, he knew for as long as he could remember.
"We are stuck in snow, an eternal winter of isolation." Tori-niisan said bitterly as they helped him clean up his tears.
"Don't you remember what you told us once, Tori-san?" Aya-niisan asked.
"It becomes spring when snow melts." He chirped as he handed over a cup of tea.
"So we only need to wait." Gure-niisan said, "Spring will come."
Yuuri's anxiety manifests a little differently.
He is a popular figure skater that turns into a monkey when sick or hugged by a girl, his family is slightly messed up, and #KatsukiSpazz tends to trend on Twitter every week or so.
