Leading Ibuki to his seat he stood there waiting for Hijikata’s reply. Now knowing that he is the kids legal guardian he got down to business. “here look at this” he handed the notebook to Hijikata “I got one of my health committee helpers daily inform on what is used and how much of it was, everyday gauze, band-aids, and wraps are taken after lunch or after school. All those supplies are taken out by Ibuki-kun here.” sighing he refilled the demon’s tea cup
“Ibuki-kun is being bullied not just name calling a lot of physical damage” pointing at the boys fingers “I believe it’s because he is in “top form” but isn’t in any school teams instead he sticks to drawing right?” he asked the boy “did you have any idea about this Hijikata-san?”
Ibuki grumbled at the two teachers telling him to sit down, but he took a seat never the less. A permanent scowl set itself on the boy’s face while he listened to Sannan talk.
“I got one of my health committee helpers daily inform on what is used and how much of it was, everyday gauze, band-aids, and wraps are taken after lunch or after school. All those supplies are taken out by Ibuki-kun here.”
Ryu made a mental note that he’d have to get back at Yamazaki later for keeping such good records of everything. He sighed and rolled his eyes at the situation more than a particular person. Why was this such a big deal? It wasn’t like he was stealing the supplies. He chose to remain quiet however as the school nurse continued talking. He knew Sannan had to tell Hijikata about this. Not only because the man was his legal guardian at the moment, but it was also for his own good. So then why did he feel anxiety creep up on him like he was about to get in trouble? No, that wasn’t right… Maybe it was the feeling of not wanting to seem weak in front of someone.
“…did you have any idea about this Hijikata-san?”
Ryunosuke stole a quick glance at the man to gauge his reaction but then returned his gaze to the tiled floor and let out an irritated huff. ‘This is annoying…’
It was quite clear from the look on his face that, no, he was not aware. He knew boys would be boys - there was never any really bullying around here though. Well, not that he was aware of. He supposed as of late… he’d had more to deal with than normally. He wasn’t really out, keeping an eye on things…
Were things getting out of hand out there?
It was almost… a little embarrassing, shameful, really. He felt a rather foreign twinge of guilt in the pit of his stomach. He was Vice Principal of this school, he ought to know what was going on, and he ought to be making sure it’s a safe environment. There was simply no good reason that Ryunosuke should need all those medical supplies unless he was really facing a problem. A tussle here and there in an all boys school, well it’s unavoidable, but it dd seem like something more was occurring in this situation.
“No, I was not aware.” He finally admitted vocally, his voice a bit dejected, words followed by a sigh.
His gaze moved over to the boy, so anxious to be away from them, he could see it. No one wanted to talk about these sorts of things. But, the situation was now presented to him, he couldn’t very well ignore it.
“Ryunosuke, how long has this been going on?”
