Before Natsu came to stay with Kajitsu and the rest of the family, he was living with his aunt and uncle. They had a boy of their own, Subaru, who was the same age as Natsu. Popular, smart, athletic and kind, Subaru seems perfect in every way--no wonder Natsu sees him as his role model. But is Subaru really as perfect as he appears? In volume 2 of Crossroad, Natsu’s tragic “missing years” are revealed at last!
