Hi sweetie! Of course I can do this!! (And no, it’s not against the rules!) I hope you’re staying safe as well!! :D
Aomine: “What about this pair, Daiki?”
He grunts, turning his attention to the new pair of basketball shoes in your hands… They were a pair of Jordan’s, almost identical to the ones he gave Kagami before his match with Kise…
“H..How’d you find those ____??”
You scratch the back of your head, “U…Uh.. well.. my father is good friends with the owner…” you explain, shrugging. “Satsuki told me you gave away a pair like this to Kagami when his broke… And you seemed upset about it.. So I asked my dad if he could help find a pair.
He clicks his tongue, grabbing your hand and drags you to the park. However, before you could say anything, the two of you are sitting on the ground, your back against the tree as he lays his head in your lap.
“Satsuki is an idiot… And Bakagami is worse!” he mumbles, doing his best to ignore the blush rushing to his cheeks.. His eyes remain shut, but his expression is relaxed, and he lets out a sigh..
“Y..You didn’t have to, you know…”
His words make you blink, and you’re staring at him longer than you realize. Without meaning to, you begin stroking his hair, humming softly.
“I wanted to, Daiki… I could tell those shoes were special…”
He sighs, but just rolls onto his side, burying his face in your lap, unaware of your reaction.. Just as you open your mouth, you vaguely hear,
“KYA!! Look at that couple over there!! They’re soo cute!! She’s such a sweet girl!”
The words make you blush, stutter and want to jump up to chase after them.. But the hold he has on your hand tightens as he frowns.
“Stop moving, ____… You’re warm…”
Your eyes go down to him, and whether he heard those words or not, he doesn’t acknowledge them at all… Instead, he’s more focused on you, and you begin to feel warm… Instead, you let out a sigh, staring up at the sky as you continue to stroke his hair. A part of you wonders why he’s even letting you do this.. While the other part is grateful to see this side of him..
Little did you realize, his cheeks were a little red, but a smile curled on his lips at your actions.
Himuro: “Gomen ____-chan… I think we’re lost…”
You run a hand through your hair, looking over at the map in front of you.. Himuro had asked you to join him at Kuroko’s birthday party, and the two of you were now lost…
“Did you really think we’d find Kagami-kun’s place by these directions??” you ask, trying not to laugh as he blushes a bit. A sheepish smile graces his features, and you try to decide what you should do…
“My! What a lovely couple you are! “ A voice says, and you look at the elderly man, with a cane. “Are you two lost?”
You laugh lightly, rubbing your neck awkwardly, “U..Uh.. Kind of..” you explain, not noticing the expression on Himuro’s face…
“Perhaps I can help you… Where are you heading?”
As you begin to explain the situation, you don’t notice Himuro’s eyes soften or how he remains silent the whole time… If his previous comment bothered you, there’s no indication on your face, and it gives him a small boost of confidence…
Perhaps after Kuroko’s birthday party, he can ask you on a real date..
Kagami: “____ ! What are you doing?”
You try to climb the shelves at the supermarket, wanting to reach the sugar on the top shelf.. However, Kagami caught you struggling, and you cast him a glance, before focusing on your task at hand.
“What does it look like Taiga? We need sugar for the recipe!”
He rolls his eyes, before walking over to you, reaching above your head and grabbing the ingredient.. He casts you a victory smirk, and holds it over your head, as if taunting you to grab it due to the height difference.
“Aw!! Isn’t that sweet?? He’s teasing her with the sugar!”
The voice interrupts your banter, and Kagami’s cheeks flare up. The ladies walk past you, and your attention is on them, raising an eyebrow…
“Old ladies are weird..” you mumble, turning your attention back to the shopping cart.. At the quietness from your partner, you look at him, a frown on your lips.
“Taiga… Are you sick? Did you want to leave?”
The concern in your voice causes him to look at you, coughing softly as he sighs, placing it inside.
“I..I’m fine _____… Let’s finish shopping yeah? It’s starting to get late..”
As much as you wanted to question him, the other part of you just shrugged it off, though if your mind occasionally drifted off to what just happened, your face never showed it.
Kasamatsu: “O..OH!! Y..Yukio!! Look at this one!!”
Your voice causes him to look up from the black guitar and his blue hues find where you’re standing.. In your arms, rests a beautiful sleek blue and white electric guitar… A late graduation gift from his family, and he was allowed to get any one he wanted.. It left him frazzled, because while he loves shopping for music… He was only able to get one..
He had his eyes on at least ten.
He approaches you then, staring down at the instrument in your hands, and carefully takes it from you. You tilt your head, watching as he tests it out, and the music caresses your ear in a lovely way.. There’s no way to explain it..
He was your friend… But lately, your thoughts drifted elsewhere…
“Your parents want you to keep playing right? While you’re away at college? Isn’t that why they said you can buy any one you want..”
His eyes lift to meet yours, and he scratches the back of his head, frowning lightly..
“Yeah… What they fail to realize is, guitars aren’t cheap… And there’s so many here I want..” He sighs, closing his eyes. “Some of the prices here are hard to justify too..
“It’s a gift, Yukio… They don’t care how much it is.. What matters is you’ll like it.. Which is why they left it up to you.”
He feels his cheeks heat up a little, and he steps forward to flick your forehead playfully, ignoring the small yelp from your lips.
“I… I know that.. I..idiot…” he murmurs, and his eyes linger on you just a tad too long, before he stares back down at the guitar…
“D…Do you like this one, ____?”
His question catches you off guard, and you’re about to open your mouth when a soft voice interrupts.
“Your girlfriend has excellent tastes! That guitar is the last in stock and limited edition!”
The saleswoman in question smiles at the two of you obliviously, not realizing the implications of her statement. She carefully takes the guitar from his hands, carrying it up to the counter.
“I’ll even give you a special discount, because I can tell it means a lot!”
Kasamatsu wants to correct her, throw words of denial at her about the status of your relationship when you interrupt.
“C..Can you engrave the word Kaijou into the guitar?”
She smiles happily, and takes it back, leaving the two of you alone for a few minutes..
“That’s why I chose it.” you explain, casting him a soft smile, “So you’ll always have something to remember me by.”
His cheeks are dark red, and he smacks you lightly, the frown contrasting his expression.
“W…We’re going to university ____… We’re not dying…”
You laugh at his words, shrugging. “Maybe… But who knows if we’ll have the same classes…” you pause, as if thinking of something, before shaking your head.
“After this, let’s go get something to drink… I’ll pay!”
All he can do is nod, his voice lost for words and mind blank from what just occurred.
Kuroko: “Nigou!!! You’ve been growing, haven’t you my handsome boy??”
The barking echoes through the air as he runs at you, and you catch him, swinging him gently around. He licks your cheeks softly, before rubbing his head, and your attention goes to the blue-haired boy now in front of you..
“Thanks for taking care of Nigou for me while I’m gone..”
You smile, nodding in politeness.. “He will be treated with love and care!! We’ll have lots of fun! Won’t we my boy??”
You miss the ghost of a smile on his lips, and there’s a brief comment echoing through the air as two girls pass by.
“D..Did you see that?? S…She’s taking care of her boyfriend’s dog!!”
“Ah! He’s so lucky to have a caring girlfriend!! Why can’t men be that kind?”
You blink, looking at the girls in confusion, feeling Nigou shift in your arms.. Your attention goes to your friend, and you miss the brief change in his expression, indicating he was a tad embarrassed..
“Say, Tetsuya…” you begin, smiling. “When’s your match?”
He blinks, looking at you, “It starts in a few hours, _____-san.. I need to meet up with Kagami-kun and the others soon.”
You nod, grabbing his hand. “I’ll walk you to the train station! And I’ll bring Nigou with me to come watch the game!”
You miss the surprise in his eyes, and the way his lips curl into a big smile.. His only response is to return your gesture, walking beside you to the station.
Momoi: “Ne, _____-chan!! Hurry! They’re going to sell out soon!”
You smile at Momoi, who is running in line, wanting to try the new chocolate cinnamon bun at the bakery… It was a limited supply, and she was determined to try it.
“Satsuki, the man at the front told us we were one of the last people in line… We’re guaranteed one each!”
She pouts, bouncing lightly from each foot, just wanting to reach the front of the line… The main reason for her wanting to be here wasn’t just for the new pastry… But because she knows you have a sweet tooth for chocolate.. And it was an excuse to hang out together, without entirely giving away she wanted to be MORE than friends..
“Awe!! Would you look at those two girls?? They’re so cute!! Is it their first date?”
The comment from the elderly ladies near the window causes Momoi to blush furiously, while you look away, scratching the back of your head awkwardly… A part of you wanted to tell them it wasn’t like that… You were just friends… But your attention was on the pinkette beside you, and the shifting in her posture caused a swelling in your chest you didn’t dare acknowledge..
Standing beside her, you grab her hand, giving her a smile.
“Was there anything else you wanted Satsuki-chan? I’ll pay for it..”
The gesture was enough to make the ladies behind you swoon, and your best friend/secret crush go crazy.. She avoids your eyes, trying to escape, but your grip tightened, and she looked at the ground…
“U…Umm… H..Hot chocolate maybe?? I..It’s a bit cold out…”
It was strange seeing her like this… But the fluttering in your chest said otherwise, and you merely nod as the two of you place your order, and then grab a table in the furthest corner of the cafe.. Neither of you acknowledge what the ladies said, just focus on each other’s company.
