Huh? Where is this? Where am I? How did I manage to survive that fall? I should be dead'' Erick opened his eyes and was greeted by a beautiful garden, it made him feel more at ease and calm. He stood up and looked around, until he noticed something in front of him, it was a brilliant light but it didn't hurt to look at, it was warm and it felt nice.
''Greetings Shinoda Hyokishi, you must be confused as to why you are in such a strange place. Let me explain you what happened, first of all, you died after that accident, I'm sorry for you but it can't be changed. As to what is this place, you could say that this is what you humans call heaven, you can call me whatever you want'' Shinoda was quite perplexed with the situation at hand, it took him some minutes to process the whole thing, but it made sense to him, even more when he had seen many isekai animes so it wasn't such a crazy situation to digest.
''Uhm is God fine with you? Anyways, I'm assuming that I'll be spending my time in here for the rest of eternity right? I don't care if I do but I have so many regrets on me, I didn't do anything of what I wanted to do, is there anything that I can do to convince you to allow me to make things right with them at least?''
The mysterious light who was apparently God stayed silent for a bit, as if meditating its answer ''First of all, I'm not exactly the type of God that any of your religion describe, you are a young boy who was good his entire life and treated everyone nicely, but you died and you suffered because of it, I suspected as much that you would want a chance to live again, and I don't have the heart to deny you that. However, you must understand that I cannot by any means alter the logic of a world, so I'm making you an offer based on your desire of being the best basketball player. It doesn't have to be now, I'll allow you to reincarnate in a certain world where your capabilities in basketball can become even better, you surely know about such a world, do you not?''
Shinoda was speechless, not because he was angry at the proposal of this almighty being, after all he wasn't a person capable of holding grudges against people, and it would be pointless. So he thought about and decided to pick a world.
''Of course I do, how could I forget about Kuroko no Basket? Will you give me a power too? Oh and before I forget or you do anything, I have one last petition to ask of you… I know that I won't see my family ever again, so I beg you that you please look out for them, I want them to have a wonderful life in my name'' Shinoda's face began filling with tears as he said that, it was his last goodbye for his family, he wanted them to have a fulfilling life no matter what.
''Do not worry my son, I will see to it, and now, it's time for you to be going as well, just visualize the power that you want on this new world and you shall have it. And one last thing, nobody can't know about your past life or memories, if you were to do so, you will completely forget them for life. Now, go on and enjoy this new life awaiting for you!'' as the light was saying that, Erick was engulfed on it and his consciousness disappeared.
By the time when he was aware of his surroundings again, he saw an unknown roof and wanting to comprehend where he was he looked around and noticed that there was a woman looking down at him, he tried to stretch his arm to touch her when he noticed, his arm was too short and it looked like the one of a baby ''Ohh that's right, God told me that I was going to reincarnate in another world, so I'm starting from scratch huh, it ain't so bad! I can improve on a lot of things with this new life of mine, I just gotta be patient…''
The years passed and Shinoda learned more about his family, like the surprising revelation that they were rich and he was their firstborn, meaning that he was the heir to the household. Such thing was unbelievable, and he couldn't be happier about it because that meant that his new, amazing and lovely parents wouldn't have to worry about money, and he would be capable of concentrating on doing what he wanted.
When he reached the age of five, an even bigger blessing entered his life, his mother had given life to a beautiful and healthy girl, he even got the chance to carry her for the first time when she was a month old and that's when the news settled on him. Shinoda started crying out of happiness ''Th-thank you so much Mom and Dad! My little sister is so cute, I love her with all my heart and I will protect her as her big brother'' he finished talking with a big smile on his face.
His parents were moved by the scene ''we are so proud of having you as our son, we love you both so much already; we know that you are going to be an amazing brother for her'' and they covered him in a lovely hug with teary eyes for a while before letting go.
