As Mike and Flowen looked, they had no luck at all. He was either somewhere else, or they missed him. "Well I say we take his advice. Let's get something to eat. Maybe he's watching us and that's part of the test." Looking ahead, he spotted a small ramen shop. "Ichi...Ichi...araku? Raku?" He squinted beneath his mask, it seemed he couldn't quite read it.
"...but...you...", Zane said looking like he knew him
"ahhh i see, your strife...rikus brother huh?", the man said with a smirk
"And your Vaan Ventashi!! you trained my brother too and you were only 18 back then!!", he said
This guy has been around and he has increible skill, "yeah, you do look familiar kid, hows ol riku anyways, but back to the topic", he said getting off topic, and to a new topic, which wasnt even started yet
"Ichiraku?" Mike questioned him, walking up beside Flowen. "What's that?" he asked, unfamiliar to the name. His clones were still wandering around, searching for Kimino. "Oh, wait, you mean Ikomatsu, right?"
"Ichiraku. Hmmm..." a man hummed, coming out from behind the two of them. "Haven't heard that name in ages. You see, we put Ichiraku out of business, ever since we migrated over here from another village..." he informed them, patting his hands together and walking inside.
"I guess... that was Ikomatsu..." Mike guessed, following him in.
