JJ Maybank Must Die | Chapter 1: Popsicles
fuckboy!JJ x Reader 
series masterlist
JJ Maybank is the island’s most infamous fuckboy- not that you ever cared. But when a group of tourist girls come to your surf shop crying to you about him, you agree to help them plot revenge. Sabotage is all fun and games, until you find that the playboy you were sworn to ruin happens to be falling head over heels for you.
Yes, this is based on John Tucker Must Die lol
Tumblr media
note: so this is my second JJ fic! I’m so excited for ya’ll to read it. it’ll be more light-hearted and shorter than DLS :) 
“Come on... come on! This one right here let’s go!” you yelped. The crowd behind you was practically chattering on their fingernails. 
The seven year old boy in the water paddled as hard as his lanky arms could take him towards the daunting wave. 
“Now Gavin now! Stand up!” you shrieked as the boy hurriedly went through your instructed steps, tucking his knee, and thrusting upwards as the wave got close. Then, before he even realized, he glided rigidly along the wave as the board carried him across the water. 
“Hooray! Awesome job Gavin!” The flock cheered and rushed to pat the boy on the back, his dad lifting him up in his arms. 
The child scuttled towards you and threw his arms around your neck. You chuckled delightedly. “Alright everyone! That’s it for our surf lesson today. Be sure to check out the gift shop on your way out!” 
You waved bye to the guests as they made way to return their boards to the hut, some handing you rolled up cash, with thankful smiles. 
Once the coast was clear, you jogged back to the hut only to find Sophia, your best friend and lazy co-worker, lounging with her legs stretched on the checkout counter of the tiny surf shack. She hung a lollipop in her mouth while her eyes glued to her phone screen. 
“You know, when you asked me to find you a job, I actually thought you meant one where you actually work.” 
Sophia popped out the sucker and threw you a glare. “I did work! See!” she pointed her hand at the sign hanging beside the door that read ‘OBX Surf and Sports’, “I put that sign up this morning.” 
“It’s crooked.” 
“Bleh, bleh, bleh,” she mocked, “Nothing I ever do is good enough.” You chuckled and shook your head at her. 
You peered out the giant window at the front of the store, surveying the empty beach. This was going to be the rest of your summer. At sixteen years old, you were one of the Outer Banks’ surfing all-stars and spent your days working as an instructor for the second year in a row. 
Customers loved you and your ability to work with all ages rendering you the title of ‘Top Instructor’ at the shack- which didn’t mean much seeing as 90% of the employees were amateur teenagers. 
Nevertheless, you were determined to keep that title, as whoever brought in the most satisfied customers by the end of the summer wins a $5,000 scholarship. And you needed that money bad in order to attend your dream school: UVA. 
Along the beach, you caught a glimpse of your competition, Cody, and instinctly groaned. 
On any other occasion, you really didn’t care about what people did with their lives, but something about your arrogant, sleazy, five-foot-seven co-worker grinded your gears. 
He was always man-splaining to you and the other girls at the shack or kissing ass to your boss. And you knew well he was after the scholarship too- your scholarship. 
“Look at him,” you sneered to Sophia as she joined you at the window to death-glare the boy. He was prepping his group on the sand for their session and looked absolutely despicable in his shorts that were inches away from exposing his little one. Emphasis on the little. 
“Ugh, he’s making them do jumping jacks again,” Sophia pointed out, crinkling her nose, “God that poor old lady. Can he be any more extra?” 
“I need to look away, I think I might vomit if he ever flashed me.” 
Your best friend snickered at your hatred as you waxed down your board for your next lesson. “Did the group of girls check in yet?” you asked. 
“Yeah, they’re sitting and waiting at Eye Sickles,” she informed, referring to the popsicle food-truck next door. “I can’t believe they really signed up for the month-long surfing program. I didn’t know people actually paid for that.” 
“You’d be surprised. These tourists will buy into anything, trust me,” you said before heading out the door. 
You walked up to three tourist girls lounging on the fold-out tables and chairs at the food-truck. They were mindlessly typing away on their phones, looking as bored as ever. 
“Alright, do I have Annalise, Maia, and Arabella?” you announced with your work-smile on. They peered up from their phones and nodded with blank faces.
“Awesome,” you continued, trying to maintain your enthusiasm, “I’m y/n, I’ll be your instructor! I see you guys signed up for the month-long pro-boarding program which is great. Have you guys ever surfed before?” 
“Nope,” a blonde girl replied, “Our parents found this online and said it’d be good for us to learn while we’re here. We’re from Richmond, Virginia.” 
“Oh cool!” you jeered, the fake zeal was oozing at that point. “Well, I’m happy to be spending the summer with you guys. I’m going to have you guys grab a board and we’ll head down to the sand to go over the basic motions.” 
The trio followed you into the hut and picked out a board from the beginners section. You noticed the blonde one giggling with Sophia at the stand for a bit before joining you on the sand. She had a leader-like quality to her while the two other remained quiet but friendly. 
“Alright so, just for formalities, who’s who? That way I can identify you better,” you asked as the girls situated their boards along the shore.  
Not shockingly, the blonde extended her hand to you first. “I’m Annalise,” she greeted a little sullenly. You shrugged off her attitude, attributing it to her being a bougie tourist. 
“I’m Maia,” a tall, jet-black haired girl said next. She had a very athletic body and came off as the quietest one of the group. 
“And I’m Arabella,” the last one chimed in. Her hair was a fiery orange and she had piercings run along her ears and nose. 
“Alright cool! So now, we’ll start off with the movements you’ll go through once you hit the water. You want to start off flat on your stomach and paddle towards the waves. Make sure you have full control of your board at all times,” you began as the girls copied your demonstration on their own boards. 
You heard sniffles come from the group, but ignored it to continue your spiel. You could hardly read any of their expressions through their giant, bug-eyed sunglasses. 
Just as you were about to explain the importance of balance- you favorite part of the lesson- you saw the blonde sit up on her board in irritation and start sobbing through her glasses. 
“Annalise come on, it’s not worth it,” the tall one, Maia, reasoned as the Annalise shook her head furiously. 
“I can’t do this right now,” she cried before bolting back towards the shack. 
You watched her in utter confusion. “Was it something I said?” you asked the remaining two. 
The orange one shook her head and gave you a sincere look through her glasses. “No, she’s just really upset about this guy,” she turned to her friend, “Come on, let’s go check on her.” 
At that point, you had no choice but to follow the group towards their distressed friend. This was definitely coming out of their session time. 
The three of you plowed up the sand to find the girl, Annalise, sprawled on Sophia’s shoulder at the tables as she cooed her like a baby. You wanted to cringe. 
“It’s okay, it’s okay. He’s a piece of shit anyways! Trust me, he did the same to me too,” your best friend comforted and petted the stranger’s yellow hair. 
“What’s going on?” you questioned at the scene. Sophia glanced up at you with a pleading look. 
“It’s JJ.” 
Oh brother. This dude again. JJ Maybank was the Outer Bank’s most infamous fuck boy. Him and his friends threw parties all the time at the Boneyard- ones you have yet to attend- and he effortlessly earned his reputation by sleeping with any girl he could get his grubby hands on. 
By this point, he’s broken half the hearts on the island with girls moaning and groaning about him left and right- Sophia included. You remembered her wailing the day he ghosted her after they did the nasty. It wasn’t a pretty day... or week for the matter. 
You didn’t understand what the big deal was with the guy. You’d gone to school with him since the first grade and he’d always been that guy that rolls in the mud during playtime in elementary school. And he still was that guy to this day.
You heard all the cringey lines he’d pull on girls at school that would get them swooning and you swore he was running a voodoo business because no one in their right mind could fall for that. 
But everyone did. Except for you. 
“What? Did he ghost you too?” you gestured towards the wrecked weeping girl.
She nodded and blew her boogers into the tissues Sophia brought out. 
“I-I, well, we met him at a party this weekend and he took me to this little hideout on the beach. He told me that he never met anyone like me before and said all this other shit. Then we had sex there, which I never do in public, and he said he couldn’t wait to see me again. And he never called me after!” 
Though you thought her public display was a little too... public, you did feel sorry for her. The guy was a tool, and these tourist girls, especially, didn’t know any better. 
“Don’t worry,” Sophia assured, resting a hand atop hers, “he did it to me and everyone at school. We all fell for the trap.” 
Maia and Arabella joined the sitting girls in a piled group hug as the ones in the center sputtered in tears together. You couldn’t bear to watch, but for Sophia, you awkwardly joined in anyways. 
The rest of the surfing session consisted of the girls pulling up their own chairs and  bad-mouthing JJ, along with all other men, as everyone licked their popsicles. 
You sucked on your mango one, not minding the little break as it was the easiest $150 you ever made. The girls weren’t as hoity-toity as you first thought. They apologized for wasting your time and promised to leave five-star reviews about you. Even better. 
As evening rolled in, you found yourself laughing and joking around with your new-found friends. They told you wild stories of their private school shenanigans back in Richmond while you and Sophia filled them in on life at the OBX. 
“This day was incredible,” Annalise beamed, dazed after her fourth popsicle. “Can’t believe we all bonded like this over a guy,” she chuckled, “I just... gah, I wish we could get him back somehow. Make him feel how we feel!” 
“You should,” you agreed, “Why don’t one of you guys go to the parties and try to seduce him and then leave him hanging? The trick with men is to withhold sex from them and they’ll be helpless.” 
Everyone’s face lit up in excitement at your idea. “No, totally! We could definitely do that!” Sophia exclaimed with wide eyes. “So who will it be? Who’s our hamster?” 
“Not me,” Maia objected almost instantly, “I have a boyfriend back home so no seducing will be done on my part.” 
“Arabella then,” Annalise suggested, nudging the girl beside her. 
“Alright...” she agreed, fiddling with the string of her bathing suit, “I guess I could take one for the team.” 
“There we go!” you cheered, “You just march straight into that party, grind on him a bit to leave him hanging, then proceed to embarrass the shit out of him! Problem solved!”

A3! Event: Starring Party ‘Stories of ‘24′ 2′ Translation
Let’s watch the video messages from everyone! p.s. the words in italic mean they’re taken from the video.
Tumblr media
Citron: Hello, I'm Citron~! I played Tennis Saionji in Spring Troupe's sixth play "Harugaoka Quartet".
Izumi: It's Enis Saionji!
Citron: Oops, I said it wrong.
Banri: We're going hard right from the start, huh.
Citron: So I'm the first one!
Kazunari: I compiled the videos in reverse order.
Citron: I had a lot of fun when my turn to be the lead actor finally came. After all, I was merely an extra in our first play. I thought I was being bullied!
Tsuzuru: That's because you couldn't even say your lines, duh!
Citron: I was really happy to be able to perform my favorite violin-themed play with my beloved troupe members.
It's all thanks to Tsuzuru. I appreciate it.
Tsuzuru: I didn't do anything special…
Citron: I'll have him rewrite "RomiJuli" script and make Friar Laurence the lead at this rate!
Tsuzuru: Hey, hold it right there!
Citron: In my "spring," I'm not alone. I'm with everyone. Let's keep traveling the world through various plays!
Chikage: I'm not sure whether to feel moved or to laugh.
Itaru: That's Citron for you.
Masumi: He's the same as ever.
Sakuya: Let's keep performing together, Citron-san!
Muku: Eh, um, ah, uhhh…!
Yuki: You're too nervous.
Misumi: Hang in there~!
Izumi: Muku-kun, calm down.
Muku: Y-Yes!
Uhh… I'm Muku Sakisaka. I played Florence in Summer Troupe's sixth play "Floral Prince".
This play is really, really precious to me, since I've got to play my dream role, a prince.
I didn't have any confidence at first. But thanks to everyone in the Summer Troupe who supported and encouraged me, my dream came true on the stage.
I could take on the lead role because I've been rehearsing together with them ever since I joined this troupe, not only in this play.
Kyu-chan has known about my dream since we were kids, and standing onstage with him as the semi-lead was reassuring. Thank you.
Kumon: Me too, thank you!
Muku: I'll continue to work hard to become an ideal prince. Please take care of me!
Misumi: I'm sure Muku can become all types of princes~!
Yuki: Anyway, your standard of an ideal prince seems to be high.
Kazunari: I think Mukkun is already princely enough~.
Tenma: Good luck.
Muku: Yup!
Juza: I'm Juza Hyodo, portraying Blood in Autumn Troupe's sixth play "Fallen Blood".
Since this play marked the first time I took on the lead role, it made me think about a lot of things, like my potential as an actor and my goal.
I still don't know how far I can go, and how I'm supposed to be as an actor now. I still can't decide on that.
But one thing for sure, I'll continue to live my life on the stage. I'll break my butt to tell the life of the characters entrusted to me.
In order to do that, I'll move forward to polish my acting. It doesn't matter whether I'm clumsy or slow. I'm going to do it.
The video Omi-san took at the time has become my precious treasure. Thanks.
Omi: Glad the video was helpful.
Juza: I'll re-watch the video over and over again whenever I hit a wallーー.
Except Settsu's part.
Banri: You bastard!
Taichi: Ahaha!
Sakyo: God, don't be sloppy.
Azami: But that's just so like Juza-san.
Hisoka: Hisoka Mikage, playing Liam in Winter Troupe's sixth play "Risky Game".
...What should I say?
Izumi: Anything is fine, like how you felt when you got chosen as the lead role or any memorable moments.
Hisoka: Lead role, huh… I've got so many lines.
Tasuku: Hey. After all that, and that's what you've got to say?
Tsumugi: That's just like Hisoka-kun.
Hisoka: But I've got to remember something precious because of this play. Thanks to everyone… I was able to meet someone important to me once again.
Homare: Good for you, Hisoka-kun.
Hisoka: I'll continue to live as actor Hisoka Mikage, together with them…
Azuma: Yeap. Let's keep working together.
Guy: I look forward to seeing Hisoka Mikage's acting in the future.
Itaru: I'm Itaru Chigasaki. I played Lancelot in Spring Troupe's fifth play "Knight of Round IV THE STAGE".
I think it'll take around an hour for me to talk about Kniroun. Is that okay?
Izumi: Please make it short!
Itaru: Got it.
Back then, I have never ever imagined becoming Lancelot from my favorite Kniroun game.
Even though I had issues with the gap between my ideal Lancelot and the reality during our rehearsals, I had fun.
After all, I've got to play the game with everyone… I had so much fun I wanted to tell my younger self about it.
A new installment is gonna be released soon, so I'll continue to devote myself to conquering the games.
Tsuzuru: Please devote yourself to our plays!
Masumi: He doesn't grow at all.
Citron: Itaru is Itaru!
Sakuya: Let's play together again!
Itaru: Speaking of which, senpai, how many hours is your total playtime?
Chikage: ...It's a secret.
Itaru: Come on, isn't it fine to spill it now?
Chikage: I have too many save files to count.
Itaru: Seriously?
Citron: What an admirable addict!
Kazunari: Heya, Kazunari Miyoshi here! I played Kiichi in Summer Troupe's fifth play "SHI★NO★BI Misadventuring".
Leading a play was not an easy task, but I had a lot of fun~. All six of us drew togetherーwe made so many memories.
I had a blast doing action scenes with Sumi!
Misumi: Me too~!
Kazunari: I've gotta admit there was pressure in becoming the starring actor, so I'm glad I learned how hard it is to be one.
Because of that, I've come to understand further how everyone feels when they're chosen to be the starring actors!
I'll continue to be your perfect support!
By the way, I've come to cherish my passion for both acting and art even more through this play.
I don't wanna give up either. I don't wanna settle on one. I'll succeed in both. With that said, please continue to take care of me!
Muku: Likewise!
Kumon: I'll be in your care too!
Yuki: I won't lose to you.
Tenma: I'll be stricter during our rehearsals.
Kazunari: Go easy on me on that one!
Misumi: Let's do action scenes together again!
Taichi: I'm Taichi Nanao, playing Chan in Autumn Troupe's fifth play "Fire Up, Mantou Fist!"
I felt complicated back when I was chosen to be the lead actor for this play. It sure made me happy, but I wasn't sure whether I was good enoughーー.
No, this isn't good. Lemme do it one more time! Please cut this part out!
Taichi: They didn't cut this out…!
Banri: They keep this one, huh.
Taichi: Umm, I was so happy and pumped up to be the starring actor. I might make mistakes in certain parts, but I had fun!
I'm so lucky I could lead a play as Autumn Troupe's Taichi Nanao.
I'll keep working hard so that I won't embarrass everyone in Autumn Troupe. I'll be an actor that can make everyone proud!
I'm aiming to be the star performer of Autumn Troupe!
Sakyo: What a thing to say.
Banri: Bring it on.
Juza: I won't lose.
Taichi: Ugh… I should've just settled with the fourth best actor, after all.
Azami: It's too early to give up.
Omi: Haha, let's do our best together.
Tasuku: I'm Tasuku Takato, playing Musashi Miyamoto in Winter Troupe's fifth play "Die by the Sword".
This wasn't my first time leading a play, but I've got to admit it felt kind of different when I did it as a member of MANKAI Company's Winter Troupe.
Through this play, I've got the chance to think about the reason why I'm in this troupe, and what kind of an actor I'm supposed to be.
I'll keep going as an actor of Winter Troupe, Takato Tasuku.
After all, performing with my fellow Winter Troupe members has become an important thing to me.
I don't know what will happen in the future, but I'm going to carefully determine what kind of an actor I'll be.
Azuma: Fufu, you're so stiff.
Guy: It was a very Takato-like message.
Homare: I've got to hand it to Tasuku-kun. He's strict with himself when it comes to acting.
Hisoka: Totally different from Arisu.
Homare: I don't want to hear that from you.
Tsumugi: Guess I need to think about how I should be as an actor too.
Chikage: I'm Chikage Utsuki. I portrayed Oz in Spring Troupe's fourth play "The Wonderful Charlatan of Oz".
My recollection of the play, huh… the only thing I remember is that I've caused troubles.
I've also given you so much trouble that time, director-san.
Izumi: No, it's okay.
Chikage: But well, I'm going to make up for it.
Izumi: It's alright. You don't have to.
Citron: Let's go eat Yakiniku! Chikage will treat us.
Tsuzuru: Sounds great.
Masumi: Let’s invite all troupe members.
Chikage: I got attacked right away, huh.
Chikage: Back when I just entered the troupe, I’ve never thought I’d stay this long.
Nor have I thought I’d spend my days with these feelings…
Since this troupe has become a place where I’ve got a precious family, I need to treasure it. I’ll be in your care.
Sakuya: The same goes for me!
Itaru: I look forward to the yakiniku.
Izumi: I’m fine with curry too!
Chikage: Alright, alright.
Kumon: I’m Kumon Hyodo, playing Souta Akiyama in Summer Troupe’s fourth play “First Crush Baseball”!
First Crush Baseball is the first play I ever performed and the first play I ever led. I was so clueless at first.
But because everyone taught and supported me, I was able to go on until our final performance.
The fact that I could stand on the stage without collapsing until the end made me so happy…
Thanks to this play, I've gained confidence from the fact I could accomplish something.
This is all thanks to everyone in Summer Troupe who accepted me. I’m glad I joined Summer Troupe. I love you all!
Misumi: I love Kumon too!
Kazunari: Me too, me too!
Yuki: But well, your current acting is better than that time.
Tenma: That’s right. You’ve greatly improved.
Kumon: Seriously!? Yeeaaay! I’ll work harder!
Muku: Let’s do our best together!
Azami: I’m Azami Izumida, portraying Abel in Autumn Troupe’s fourth play “DEAD/UNDEAD”.
Back when I ran away from home, I never would have thought I’d perform onstage. But well, I had a blast beating up shitty Sakyo on the stage.
Sakyo: ...Hey.
Azami: I got to do makeup to my heart’s content, and now I feel like I really could go on living with makeup for the rest of my life.
I’m glad I joined this theater troupe. There’s a lot of interesting people here, and I never run out of people to use as guinea pigs when I want to test my new makeup.
I’ll study makeup more and improve my acting.
Banri: Yo, good luck with that.
Juza: I expect a lot from you.
Omi: Ever since this play, our stage photos look nicer than before. It’s all thanks to you, Azami.
Taichi: I’ve become cooler thanks to your makeup too, A-chan!
Sakyo: Putting makeup aside, you still have a lot to learn in acting.
Azami: Shaddup.
Guy: My name is Guy. I played Phantom in Winter Troupe’s fourth play “Le Fantôme de l' Opéra”.
Back when I stood on the stage, I thought I was just going with the flow. But now that I think about it again, everything went as Citronia intended.
Citron: Of course it did.
Guy: I’ve got to know the things Citronia deemed precious after coming to this country and joining this theater troupe.
I myself was able to regain my precious memories and take off the armor that has restrained me for so long.
And as I spend my days here, I continue to discover new sides of myself.
Strangely enough, I don’t hate this. Rather, I want to keep enjoying these changes.
Tsumugi: You were an android at first, right.
Guy: Yes. That was what I believed.
Tasuku: Those days felt like an eternity ago.
Hisoka: ...You’ve changed.
Homare: Yes, and in a good way.
Azuma: You’ve become more human now. That’s great.
Citron: He’s still as hopeless as ever, though.
Guy: I’ll do my best.
Tsuzuru: I’m Tsuzuru Minagi, playing Luke in Spring Troupe’s third play “A Clockwork Heart”.
This play, which I led, was the most unforgettable play for me. Everything is etched deep in my heart, including my self-reflection.
Itaru: Dude, you spoke freaking smoothly in this one.
Masumi: Unbelievable.
Chikage: Were you reading notes?
Tsuzuru: Ughーー.
Izumi: They got you.
Tsuzuru: At the time, I looked back at the reason why I wanted to write scripts and do theater in the first place.
I’d like to keep doing my best in both script writing and acting without throwing away my beginner’s spirit.
And even though I got swayed a lot by my co-lead Citron, he saved me in an unexpected time and place. I appreciate it.
I can’t thank you enough. I look forward to continuing working with you all.
Citron: Same here!
Sakuya: You two are the best pair from Spring Troupe!
Misumi: Hello, I’m Misumi Ikaruga. I played Sky in Summer Troupe’s third play “Captain Sky Pirates”.
You see~ I found 54 triangles during this play~!
Tenma: You sure remember that kind of thing well, huh!
Yuki: What a waste of memorizing skill.
Misumi: Among the triangles I found that time, the one I like the most was the big triangle we saw in the night sky.
Ever since I joined this theater troupe, I found lots of precious triangles. I want to let grandpa know about it one day.
Kazunari: You still have more and more triangles to add to your collection.
Muku: Let’s collect so many triangles you can’t even count them!
Kumon: I’ll help you find them!
Misumi: Yup~! Let’s go find lots of triangles~!
Sakyo: I’m Sakyo Furuichi, portraying Ginji Kazama in Autumn Troupe’s third play “Tales of Chivalry: Ginji the Wanderer”.
I couldn’t stop thinking it was too late for me to be the lead actor, but I’ve gotta admit, I learned a lot at the time. Furthermore, I once again realized I’m still lacking experience.
I’m gonna keep on learning very seriously, shamelessly and move forward.
Banri: Oh shit, so scary, what a scary man.
Azami: So childish.
Sakyo: Age and experience don’t matter on the stage. This is a serious fight. Prepare yourself.
Juza: Bring it on.
Taichi: Somehow, that part just now sounded like a criminal declaration!
Omi: His statement sure is powerful.
Azuma: I’m Azuma Yukishiro, playing Reo Kuto in Winter Troupe’s third play “Nocturnality”.
I can't say I got especially attached to the play just because I played the lead role, but I felt the bond between Winter Troupe members got stronger at that time.
I could take a step forward thanks to Tasuku. I'm glad we performed this play.
Tasuku: I didn't do anything special… I just thought it was necessary for the play.
Homare: So it has something to do with the play in the end.
Hisoka: What a theater fool.
Azuma: But that's just how Tasuku really is.
Tsumugi: Yes, even his dishonest side.
Azuma: Compared to that time, with Guy joining us, the Winter Troupe is changing little by little.
I think this is a nice change, though. I feel at ease with you guys. Look forward to continuing working with you.
Tsumugi: Same here.
Guy: I'll be in your care.
Masumi: I'm Masumi Usui, playing Alice in Spring Troupe's second play "Boy Alice in Wonderland".
….
Izumi: Masumi-kun, the camera is over here! Look here!
Masumi: But I want to look at you…
Izumi: ...I'll move, then.
Masumi: Can I express my feelings for you?
Izumi: I rather have you express your feelings towards the play!
Masumi: ...Itaru was annoying.
Itaru: Heeey.
Masumi: We took a long time to finish rehearsing.
Tsuzuru: That was because you kept trying to impress the director and criticized us too much!
Masumi: Itaru was annoying.
Chikage: You must have been really annoying at that time.
Itaru: …
Masumi: But I think the play turned out great.
Izumi: Yes, I feel the same.
Sakuya: I think so too!
Masumi: My acting has gotten better since that time. I'll continue to improve so much you can't even take your eyes off me. Keep looking at me and me only.
Citron: He kept staring at the director the whole time!
Tsuzuru: That's Masumi for ya.
Yuki: I'm Yuki Rurikawa, portraying Shiro in Summer Troupe's second play "The Adventure for Sardines".
The thing I remember the most during this play was that I caused everyone's troubles, since I struggled to juggle between my position as the lead actor and the costume designer.
Kazunari helped me a lot.
Kazunari: It's no biggie~!
Yuki: But compared to that time, I've grown now.
I mean, it's thanks to the events at the time that I'm now able to balance acting and costume making well.
I only started acting because I wanted to get feedback for the costumes I made, but now I genuinely find acting fun.
I find it fun to stand onstage and produce a play together with everyone. It's a different kind of fun from making costumes.
I've learned a lot of things by doing both, so I won't settle on just one and continue doing them all.
Kumon: Let's continue working together~!
Muku: Let's do our best together!
Misumi: I love Yuki's costumes!
Tenma: Well, your acting has certainly gotten better since that time.
Yuki: You're still as arrogant as ever though.
Tenma: What!?
Omi: I'm Omi Fushimi. I played Wolf in Autumn Troupe's second play "Stranger".
It feels rather embarrassing to have someone shoot me when I've always been the one filming.
For me, this play means much more than just being the play that I led.
It's hard to put it into words, but…
This play made me, who's always been looking at the past, face forward and walk towards the future.
Now, I plan to chase the dream that my friend gave me for my own sake.
Taichi: Good for you, Omi-kun!
Omi: Thanks for your help that time.
Taichi: Your welcome!
Sakyo: Fushimi broke out of his shell during this play.
Banri: His acting changed a lot. I still remember it.
Juza: It was stimulating.
Omi: Haha. I hope I can grow further than that time.
Homare: I'm Homare Arisugawa. I played Tooru Sagishima in Winter Troupe's second play "The Master Likes a Mystery".
For me, the most unforgettable thing during this play was definitely my grandmother's watch.
I feel like this watch gave me the opportunity to be able to touch everyone's hearts little by little.
Especially Hisoka-kun. I never thought he'd do something for the sake of other people, and not just marshmallows.
Hisoka: It's because Arisu was hopeless.
Homare: You're right, I won't deny it. You helped me out back then.
Homare: This play turned out great because of Hisoka-kun and everyone.
Unlike poems, a play is something that you create with other people. It's too difficult for me alone, but that's what makes it very interesting.
No matter how many times I experienced it, I've never gotten tired of it. I think it's a wonderful thing.
Oh! I've found some poem inspiration. Ahemーー.
(video shuts down abruptly)
Guy: Oh, the video got cut.
Homare: Why did you cut off that part!?
Izumi: Huh? That's weird. There must be some technical issues…
Tasuku: He was going off topic, anyway. Perfect timing.
Homare: But that was part of my video message!
Tsumugi: Please let me hear it after this.
Azuma: I’d like to hear it too.
Homare: All right! I shall organize a recitation later, then.

The Miniature Husky was bred in Wasilla, Alaska, from the early 1970s until 1988 by Linda S. Spurlin and her family. The breed was originally obtained by crossing Siberian huskies, Alaskan huskies, and they were also added to the barks and American Eskimo dogs to reduce the size of the breed without signs of dwarfism. She was engaged in breeding as a private owner, and in the late eighties allowed to use the genus for general breeding. The subsequent unification of the genus occurred after the breed was recognized by clubs and associations for rare breeds. The Miniature Husky, or dwarf husky, better known as the Alaskan Klee-kai was officially recognized by the American Rare Breed Association in 1995. The United Kennel Club (UKC) recognized this breed on January 1, 1997.

How to Train Aussie Poo (Poodle Mixed with Australian Shepherd)
The Poodle Mixed with Australian Shepherd is extremely intelligent thanks to the fact that both parent breeds are very intelligent. Also, because of Australian Shepherds' eagerness to please, they should be fairly easy to train!
They will respond best to positive reinforcement. Punishment should be avoided as much as possible leads to problematic behavior .
These dogs love treats and compliments, but tend to prefer one over the other.
As mentioned earlier, one of the problematic behaviors is to herd and pinch children - this can be easily trained. You should distract them by using a ball or toy to prevent children from herding around the house.
Socialization is vital for all genders! Expose them as puppies to a wide variety of people, children and animals. The same is true for household appliances that make loud noises like washing machines.
Start training and socializing as soon as you bring your puppy home!
When smart dogs are not mentally stimulated, they can become frustrated and bored , causing them to be destructive. Give them a puzzle feeder and play hide and seek with their treats. Let them play with other dogs and provide them as much social interaction as possible to improve their cognitive skills.
They see education as a form of play and challenge makes them happy. While an easy task, here are a few things that will help you effectively train your Poodle mixed with Australian Shepherd.
When is the right time?
The right time to start training your puppies is the first day they come to your home. At eight weeks old, these puppies can absorb anything you've taught them - waiting until they're old isn't a great idea. They can hold information and understand instructions very early. Left untrained, you run the risk of raising a headed Poodle Australian Shepherd.
Where to start socializing?
You must have them attend a puppy kindergarten class by the age of twelve. It will help you start their socialization . Besides formal training, you should immediately start socializing them with family members and friends.
What should you teach them?
The first thing your puppy needs to learn is obedience. This is a stepping stone in which you should teach your dog some tricks for yourself. They are extremely intelligent and active. If you can teach and assign them a job or purpose, such as getting the paper for you, they will be delighted. It gives them the challenge and warning they need.
As long as you are willing to teach them, you can have them do almost anything you want and they'll be happy to do it for you.
How to train a puppy?
You need to be patient and consistent in training them. Positive reinforcement goes a long way. They can quickly find out if they see that they please you. You should also remember to restrict training for short periods. It is a good idea to train for 10 to 15 minutes throughout the day. Avoid repeating commands too much or they will lose their relevance.
It's natural to try to bend or bump you when they're driven and try to hold the family together. However, you have to make it your priority to deter it. You can scold them and then direct their attention to a game. It is important as they must learn to avoid biting or bumping you while walking. This education will also help children stay safe around them.

Hello everyone! Thank you for all the love on my last fic! @he-knows-his-herbs I think you will enjoy this one, because we stan dad!dewey in this house ;)
Baby Blues
It was a regular Friday night. You and Dewey curled up on the coach, plenty of snacks and a movie. It was a relaxed atmosphere with the two of you just enjoying eachothers presence and warmth. Neither of you having any desire to get up anytime soon.
That was until your phone rang from the kitchen. You begin to peel yourself from Deweys grasp but he pulls you back down.
“Dewey!” you whine as he clutches you tighter.
“Ignore it, stay here”. Dewey was very needy sometimes.
“I’ll only be a minute”. Reluctantly he loosens his grip and lets you go. You answer the phone and in a matter of minutes you return, smiling to yourself.
“Who was that?” Dewey asks as he pulls you back down.
“My sister was asked to work last minute and needs a sitter. She wanted to know could we do it? So since we don’t have any plans tomorrow, I said yes.”
“Oh ok”. Dewey didn’t have much experience babies. He was an only child (he claims it’s because he was hard work as a child, which put his parents off the idea of having any more children). He didn’t have any cousins, nephews or nieces either.
He could tell you were excited, you’d always been great with kids. The two of you would be out in public walking side by side, then suddenly you’d disappear. He’d look around and see that you’d wondered off to a strangers baby.
The next morning rolls around and your up bright and early ready to babysit. You let Dewey sleep in. Your sister arrives just on time and begins to talk you through a list of instructions. You take your niece from her arms and wave goodbye.
Your niece is 6 months old and full of energy, so you take her into the living room and play around with some of her toys. Your in the middle of a intense game of peekaboo, when Dewey walks in, his hair sticking up in all directions.
“Morning Dew”, you smile at the sight of him.
He kisses your temple, “morning babe” and pauses turning to your niece “and good morning to you too.” He gently tickles her under her chin resulting in her bursting into fits of giggles. You laugh too making Dewey smile.
The two of you spend the next few hours playing with your niece. Your niece is in fits of laughter at Dewey, finding him to be the most hilarious person she’d ever met in her short lived life. He of course feeds of this doing even more to make her giggle. From hiding behind the coach and popping out to talking and singing in silly voices.
By mid-day your niece begins to fuss.
“Looks like someone’s ready for her lunch” You go to the fridge pull out the strange, unappetising looking puréed food your sister left and heat it up. Your niece sits in Deweys lap as you spoon the blended mush into her mouth which she seems to enjoy. Soon she is a complete mess, with sticky hands and a mouth covered in orange sludge.
Dewey laughs at the state she’s in and begins to bounce her on his lap. You try to warn him that may not be the best idea but it’s too late as your niece spits up right onto his shirt.
She begins to cry, but Deweys quick and stands up and begins to bop her gently, your niece quickly calms back down.
“Don’t worry about it kid, your not the first person to throw up on me”
You give him a a confused look, raising your eyebrows, but he shakes his head. “Don’t ask”.
You decide now is not the time to get into past events so you busy yourself by grabbing some baby wipes and cleaning the spit up off Deweys shirt. For someone who had literally never held a baby, he seemed to have quite a way with kids. This led you to wonder did he want his own kids in the future, and if so when?
After cleaning up the three of you head into the living room once again and put on some kids tv show that didn’t appeal to you nor Dewey but pleased your niece. She sits on your lap watching intently, but soon her head falls begins to drop forward and soon she’s fallen asleep. You contemplate what to do with her whilst she napped, Dewey suggests you put her in your bed. You place her in the middle of the bed and Dewey surrounds her in pillows so she can’t roll of the bed.
You turn to leave the room, reaching the door you turn around to see Dewey planting a gentle kiss on the sleeping girls forehead. Your heart melt at the sight of this.
It’s then your phone loudly rings from the living room, you rush to grab it before it woke your niece.
Your distressed sounding friend calls to tell you her car had broken down and needed to be picked up. You don’t know if leaving Dewey alone with your niece was the greatest idea but they seemed to have already formed such a cute little bond so you decide it would be ok.
Dewey walks out of your bedroom quietly shutting the door.
“Hey Dew, my friends just broken down and needs a ride home. Do you think your ok to fly solo for a while.”
Dewey looks nervous, “what if she wakes up, what do I do then?”
“She won’t be awake for at least an hour, I’ll be back by then. You’ll be fine I promise, look at you, your a natural already.”
Dewey still looks unsure but agrees.
“Thank you Dew, I’ll be back soon”. You give him a quick peck on the lips, grab your keys and rush out the door.
Dewey is left standing contemplating what his next move should be. As if on que your niece begins to screech, causing Dewey to jump out of his skin. He goes into the room and picks up the shrieking child.
Holding her in his arms and shushing her gently. This doesn’t seem to soothe her or make any difference. Dewey begins to internally panic, worrying she would cry until you’d arrive home.
He whips he phone out of his pocket and searches up how to stop babies from crying. He reads through the list evaluating what would work. She couldn’t be hungry, she’d eaten lunch not even an hour ago. He hoped with all his strength she didn’t have a dirty diaper for many reasons, the main being he had no idea how change a diaper. He’s filled with relief when he’s met with a fresh diaper.
Was it gas? You had burped her after eating, but copying the technique you had used, he tried again but to no avail. He tried everything the list had suggested but nothing seemed to work. With the wailing baby still in his arms he began to desperately pace up and down the apartment treating to soothe her in anyway he could.
He stops in the living room excepting defeat, your nieces face is bright red and her cheeks are shiny with tears. It’s then he spots his guitar and decides to do the only thing he knows.
He holds your niece against his chest and begins to quietly sing, swaying to the music. She continues to wail be he is persistent so keeps going. Soon the wails turn into gentle whimpers and soon they cease completely, looking down he sees that she has fallen back to sleep on his chest. He lets out a breathe he didn’t realise he was holding and sits on the coach relieved for the peace and quiet.
Like you said, you were gone for little over a hour, quietly sneaking into through the door not to wake your napping niece. You decide to check on her before locating Dewey, you peak through the door and are surprised to see she isn’t there. Heading on down to the living room, your met with just about the cutest thing you’d ever seen.
Dewey is laying down on the coach, with your niece sprawled out on his chest, both fast asleep. Smiling at the sight, you go to your closet and pull out a blanket draping it over the two sleeping beauties.
Heading into the kitchen you start to pull something together for dinner. You hear crying from the living room alerting you to the fact the your niece was now awake. You head towards the living room and see Deweys up on his feet trying to settle her back down.
“Hey you two, have a nice nap” you say walking towards them.
Dewey laughs and kisses your temple.
This time Dewey is quick to work out the problem, she was in need of a diaper change. He is given a full education on the art of diaper changing and is a master by the end of it.
The rest of the evening flys by. You feed your niece dinner, you and Dewey have dinner, another dirty diaper and lots more playtime. Dewey takes his guitar out and begins to sing to your niece, which she loves, even going as far as to clap her hands. This makes Dewey smile wider than you’ve ever seen before.
Your both disappointed when your sister arrives home from work. You joke that you’d be happy to keep her, Dewey is not apposed to the idea and seems rather happy about it. You both say goodbye to your niece and collapse onto the coach exhausted.
“Babe?”, Dewey asks.
“Yeah?”, you turn to him.
“Can we get a baby?”. You laugh at his comment and ruffle his hair. “Not tonight sweetie it’s late”. He pouts and then laughs along with you.
The two of you are quiet for a few minutes until you become curious. “Dewey, do you want to have kids? In the future, I mean.”
He thinks for a minute. “If you asked me that a few years ago it would of been a definite no.”
“Why?”
He nibbles at his lip. “Well first off I was convinced they would interfere with my rock star life style, but deep down I think it was because I was afraid they’d turn out to be screw ups just like me.”
You caress his face looking him in the eye. “Oh Dewey honey your not a screw up, you’ve got your life together now.”
He smiles, “I suppose. But thinking about it now, I think I would like to have a few. I think working at Horace Green has helped to show me what I really want in life. What about you?”
You pause for a minute. “Yes, but not for a few more years and only if it’s with you.”
Dewey pulls you tight against him kissing your forehead. “Me too”
Your both quiet again, snuggled against eachother. Dewey laughs to himself.
“Plus it would be a waste not pass on my dashing good looks into the next generation.”

Sunshine and Grumpy my @aftgexchange piece for @linecrosser
Prompt: JereJean "... and there was only one bed" aka the surprise-bedsharing and maybe getting mildly annoyed with the others sleeping habits
read on AO3
Jean’s first game as a Trojan went surprisingly well, as did his second. His adjustment to his new team and new home had been slow at first, but after a few months of summer practice, he’d started to feel like a real person again. The therapy probably helped with that too. 
They all thought his first away game would be the real challenge, after all things always went wrong for Jean somehow. However, the third game of the season which was the first away game, went perfectly. The Trojans won by a good margin, with no injuries or fights. Jean got almost 35 minutes of playtime, which was huge in such a large team. After the game, a few people from the other even team complimented Jean’s new playing style during the handshake. Then in the locker room Coach Rhemann said he was proud of how far Jean had come in such a short amount of time. All in all, it was the best game of his life.
At the hotel, things started to go downhill. As captain Jeremy ran his team the exact opposite of how Riko had. Where Riko got the first and best pick for everything, Jeremy always picked last, taking whatever was left over after everyone else made their choices. As Jeremy’s roommate, that meant Jean did too. 
They assigned hotel rooms by dorm room assignments, simple and easy. It kept people from arguing about who they wanted to room with, and it helped the process of handing out room keys go quickly. The problem was that Jeremy took the last room the team had booked, even the coaches and staff picked before him, which meant that they ended up in a single room with a queen-sized bed. 
“I’ll sleep on the floor,” Jean said as they exited the elevator on their floor.
Jean side-eyed him for a moment, “If you can keep your hands to yourself you can sleep in the bed too.”
Jeremy beamed at him and Jean didn’t know why. People shared beds all the time, completely normal part of life, especially when traveling. Jean remembered sharing beds with his cousins every time his family visited theirs when he was little. Maybe it was because he was trusting Jeremy to sleep next to him, when sleep is his most vulnerable time? But that didn’t make much sense since their dorm beds were less than six feet apart, anyway. 
When Jeremy finally got their keycard to work, they walked into the room. It was small with just the one bed, a simple desk, and dresser being used as a tv stand. Just to the side of the door was a counter with a coffee machine and then the bathroom door. 
Jean walked in and put his duffle bag on the desk chair while Jeremy dug through the limited coffee and tea options. Jean dug through the bag until he found his sweats and hoodie. Normally he slept in just shorts, but he didn’t want to risk waking up to Jeremy accidentally touching his bare skin. So far he’d managed not to punch a single one of his teammates and he would not ruin that by accidentally punching Jeremy in his sleep.
He slid past Jeremy to get to the bathroom where he got ready for bed. He took a few minutes to prepare himself for sleeping with another person. The nightmares were rare at this point, after about six months away from the nest, but Jean wasn’t sure how having a weight next to him in bed would change that. With his teeth brushed and flossed, he exited the room to find Jeremy sitting on the bed, channel surfing, wearing just his shorts. 
Of course, Jeremy was comfortable enough with himself, or maybe with Jean? to wear his normal pajamas to bed. He looked confused when he saw what Jean was wearing, but he kindly didn’t comment. Jean wasn’t sure if that what was worse, Jeremy noticing it was weird and not commenting or if he had commented. 
He walked over and sat on the other side of the bed, slightly annoyed that Jeremy was so at ease that he could just lounge with his chest bare. Generally, Jean only took his shirt off right before he went to sleep, and after the lights were off. The only reason he slept shirtless at all was that he had a tendency to overheat in his sleep. With his current outfit he’d probably wake up in the middle of the night feeling like he’s being boiled alive, but that was better than punching Jeremy for accidentally touching him, or not being able to sleep at all. 
Jeremy settled on some old western movie then rearranged his pillows so he could sit comfortably on the bed. Jean chose to lie down and wrap as much of the blanket as he could around himself. Not looking at Jeremy’s chest was easy. Being his roommate Jean had a lot of practice ignoring the crush he had on his captain. 
“Are you ready to go to sleep?” Jeremy asked him.
“Yes. Are you not?” Jean said.
Jeremy shook his head making Jean roll his eyes. After games, he wanted nothing more than to pass out for at least 12 hours, but Jeremy always had other plans. The insufferable golden retriever of a man was always wound up after a game. Jeremy liked to go party and dance on game days, often not returning home until well into the night. He should have gone to someone else’s room, Jean thought, most of the team liked to celebrate a win. The only reason he would have stayed behind is if he wanted to look out for Jean.
The first few weeks with the Trojans had been like that. Jean was always surrounded by teammates, babysitting him after Kevin had told them not to leave him alone. It hadn’t taken as long as Jean had thought it would for them to let him be. A month in Jean had insisted Jeremy go out and when he’d returned and saw that everything was fine, he started doing it more often. Even after everyone else had caught onto the fact that Jean liked to be alone Jeremy was still hesitant. Being alone and being lonely were two different things. They’d had a talk about that after Jean had yelled at Jeremy to leave him alone one time, and since then Jean made an effort to spend sometime around the team outside of practice, and Jeremy attempted to let him be when he asked. 
Jean pulled the blanket over his head and rolled over so he was facing the wall instead of Jeremy. A few seconds later he felt Jeremy get up and then heard the lights click off. The TV was still on, but it was dark enough that he could uncover his head and get some rest. 
It only took a few moments for the low sounds of the TV to lull Jean to sleep. As exhausted as he was it didn’t even after that Jeremy was still awake and sitting next to him.
Jeremy finished the western movie and then channel surfed for a few minutes until he found an old vampire movie on another channel. He looked over and saw Jean sleeping peacefully. It wasn’t even midnight yet, and the guy was already passed out. With Jean going to bed early and Jeremy staying up late they were not a great fit to be roommates, but Jeremy was one of the few people on the team who could handle both Jean’s negative attitude and his taciturn nature. Jeremy knew it frustrated Jean when he stayed up until 2 or 3 am regularly, but it also frustrated him that Jean was in bed asleep by 11 pm every night. The only reason they managed to make it work was that Jean could sleep with the lights on and with a little bit of noise thanks to his time in the nest.
At the end of the second movie, Jeremy got up and brushed his teeth. It was still a bit early for him, but he decided to try and go to bed, anyway. All of the channels the hotel offered were playing infomercials by then, and he hadn’t brought his laptop on the trip. He carefully climbed into the bed, trying to to make any sudden movements that might wake Jean. When the other boy rolled over he froze. After two silent breaths, he was sure Jean hadn’t woken up and started to move again. Rearranging the pillows and prying some of the blankets away from Jean took more effort than he had expected. 
Once he was settled he took stock of how much room he had. Thanks to Jean rolling over he had about a third of the bed, meaning if he moved at all he was going to bump him. Of all the things Jean could have been he never expected him to be both a bed hog and a blanket hog. It took him a good twenty minutes to fall asleep and during that time Jean managed to steal even more of the bed from him.
It felt like seconds later when he woke up freezing. The clock on the bedside table read 4:27 am.  All of the blankets had been pulled away from him, and he was resting on the very edge of the bed. He reached for the blanket but froze when he realized the weight pressed into his side wasn’t a pillow, but instead Jean. The two were pressed together from head to toe. Jeremy moved slightly, adjusting his position to be more comfortable, which led to Jean moving too. Jean wrapped an arm around Jeremy’s waist and laid his head down on his shoulder. He didn’t wake up at all and Jeremy had no idea what to do. 
With the arm across him, he had a chance to grab the blanket and pull just enough of it to cover his legs, but his shoulders were still bare except where Jean’s head was. Jeremy felt a shiver run down his body, and Jean shifted even closer at the movement. Jean rolled so one of his legs was between Jeremy’s and he was pressed up against his side, half on top of him.
At no point in their short friendship had Jeremy imagined Jean to be a snuggler. 
When Jean hadn’t moved after a few minutes Jeremy shifted his shoulder so he could be more comfortable. Jean let out a soft sight, almost a purr, as he snuggled closer yet again. There was no way Jeremy was going tobe able to get back to sleep now. Jean was warm and heavy on top of him, like his weighted blanket at home, so he was extremely comfortable, but he wanted to make sure that he was awake when Jean woke up. He had no idea how the other would react to the situation.
Jeremy spent the rest of the night in a half awake, half asleep state. He zoned out for a few minutes at a time but woke up completely every time that Jean moved at all. During his hours of solitude, he thought about how pleasant it was to sleep with Jean like that. Naturally, everyone knew that Jean was one of the most attractive players on the team, yet most people found his attitude to be off-putting. At this moment, Jeremy realized the attitude wasn’t so much a part of his personality as it was a way for him to protect himself. 
The touch starved boy was finally getting the comforting touch he deserved, too bad he was asleep for it. Gently Jeremy moved his arm so he could wrap it around Jean. Once again Jean sighed and shifted just a little bit closer. It amazed Jeremy that it was even possible for Jean to get closer to him with the way they were laying. 
Just after 7, with rays of sun shining through the window, Jean started to stir. He whined and put his hand over his eyes, blocking out the light. 
“Good morning sunshine,” Jeremy said, keeping his voice soft and low.
“Uh uh, you’re sunshine,” Jean said into his chest.
Jeremy laughed, “Then what are you?”
“Grumpy,” Jean replied.
“Grumpy?” Jeremy asked. Jean pulled the blanket over his head instead of replying, so Jeremy asked again. “Why are you grumpy?”      
The blanket muffled his reply but Jeremy could just make out, “too early”.
That comment made Jeremy laugh again. Jean had gotten about 8 hours of sleep while he had only managed two, yet Jean was the grumpy one. 
Jean sat straight up and looked at him, mouth open and his eyes wide. He looked down at Jeremy’s bare chest then back to his face. 
“What the FUCK. Why was I sleeping on you?” Jean demanded.
“I Don't Know!” Jeremy said exasperated. “I woke up in the middle of the night and you were right next to me and then when I tried to move you rolled on top of me! I didn’t want to wake you up and freak you out, so I just let you be!”
Jean rubbed his face with his hands, then ran them through his hair. He looked around the room as his breathing picked up.
“Hey,” Jeremy said softly. “Hey, Jean look at me. It’s okay. We’re good.”
Looking him over Jean nodded. Jeremy reached out for him, but stopped short of actually touching him. After a moment Jean leaned into his hand, letting Jeremy cradle his face.
“You’re okay. I’m not upset,” Jeremy said offering him a smile, “it’sactually kind of nice.”
Jean raised an eyebrow at him, questioning or challenging, Jeremy couldn’t tell. Feeling emboldened Jeremy continued, “Lay down, we don’t have to get up for a few hours.”
Jeremy watched as a flurry of emotions went over Jean’s face. He looked annoyed, then confused, then shocked. Finally, he took a deep breath and looked relaxed. Ever so slowly Jean laid down again, settling his head down against Jeremy's chest.
“Okay?” Jeremy asked.
“Mhm,” Jean hummed, vibrating Jeremy’s chest. His next words came out just above a whisper, “This is nice.”
Jeremy smiled his big goofy smile, the one his sisters made fun of him for. He was glad Jean couldn’t see it. “Yeah, it is nice.”
Jean mumbled something into the blanket he’d pulled up to his face, and Jeremy couldn’t make it out this time.
“Did you say something?” he asked.
“I SAID, I Like You,” Jean yelled into the blanket. 
Jeremy smiled and giggled.
Jean started to turn away from him, “Don’t laugh at me. It’s fine if you don’t like me. Just don't fucking laugh at me.” 
“Hey, no no, I’m not laughing at you,” Jeremy said as he wrapped an arm around Jean’s blanket-covered frame. “I’m laughing because I like you too, and I thought you hated me.”
“Oh.” Jean snuggled closer to him and tilted his head so he could see his face.
“Yeah, ‘oh’,” Jeremy said smiling at him. His breath caught in his throat when he realized how close they were. “Can I kiss you?”
Jean laughed, it sounded raw and nervous and beautiful. The man rarely laughed, and Jeremy had never heard him sound quite like that. It was a sound he never wanted to forget.
“Maybe after you brush your teeth,” Jean said, voice almost teasing, “I’m not kissing you if you have gross morning breath.”
Jeremy gently pushed Jean off of him like he was going to get up, but Jean pulled him back again. 
“I can't brush my teeth if you won’t let go,” Jeremy teased.
“Later,” Jean said, “now we sleep.”
Jeremy wiggled around, getting more comfortable, which made Jean huff. Once he was settled Jean snuggled in closer to him and sighed. It only took a few minutes for Jean to doze off again and Jeremy enjoyed every one of them. He knew it was a big step for Jean to let someone so close to him, and he was glad he got to be that person. 
Listening to Jean’s soft snoring, feeling his breath on his bare chest, Jeremy drifted off to sleep too.

Get Ready For The Next Battle
Rating : M
>>>Read on AO3<<<
Yo i just noticed that next chapter is number 69, i ain't gonna pass that opportunity up. I'm so going to unleash the depths of my depravity. . . . im 12 btw ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
“C’mon baby, one more set, you can do it!”
Motivated by his beautiful personal cheerleader, Eren mobilized his remaining strength, pushing with all his might to finish the last few crutches, but his muscles were completely exhausted, and with a groan he let go, falling back on the bench.
“I can’t.. I can’t…”, rolling off the pad, Eren stood up on his slightly trembling legs, bending over to gulp in air. Damn he was beat. Behind him, Mikasa took his place, effortlessly beginning another set of her perfectly fluid movements, her rhythmic breathing suggesting that she was still far from her limits. Sitting down on the machine next to hers, Eren watched her, not completely understanding where the hell she took the energy from. His stomach hurt just from watching her, but Mikasa showed no signs of slowing down, finishing the set and taking a quick breather before the next one.
“You okay? Hope I didn’t exhaust you too much.”, she asked, a tiny hint of mockery in her voice, making Eren frown at her. Today’s workout was kinda insane, and Eren couldn’t help but wonder if it wasn’t her way of paying him back for the play from few days back, her way of showing that while she’s perfectly fine with submitting to him in the bedroom, in terms of physical abilities Mikasa’s still far superior to him. Then again, if she felt the need to assure herself of her skills, Eren was more than okay with that. The playtimes were totally worth having his ass handed to him at the gym.
“You know, not everyone has a set of pistons in their midriff.”
She arched an eyebrow at him.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Isn’t it obvious?”, pushing himself up, Eren loomed above her, running his palm over the defined ridges of her stomach, revealed by the cropped top she usually wore for her workouts. Even after all these years, it still fascinated him, the way he could feel the shape of every single one under his fingers, and it was needless to say that Eren certainly approved her choice of gym attire. “Pretty sure that your abs have their own abs at this point.”
“That’s not how muscles work, Doctor.”
Not feeling like arguing with her, Eren decided on a surprise attack instead, pressing a kiss to her midriff instead. The hitched breath he heard was just what he was looking for.
“You were saying?”
Rolling away from him, half because this part of her workout was done, half because she wanted to hide her giggle, Mikasa stood up, stretching. Her eyes looked all around the gym, before finally settling on her boyfriend, squatting on the floor. She came closer, smoothing a few strands of hair that escaped his bun from Eren’s face, lazily smiling down at him.
“How are your energy reserves?”
Standing up to mirror her, he was the taller one now, very much enjoying the illusion of power it gave him.
“Is that a challenge?”
“Maaaybeee..”, she drew the word out, dragging a singular finger down his jaw. Such a simple touch, yet it managed to make his pulse race. Her arms sneaked around Eren’s neck, and Mikasa’s lips, now dangerously close to his ear, caressed the skin there as she spoke. “I want you to….”
Eren was completely immersed in her little game now, ignoring that they were still in the gym, with people around, and Levi just a few meters away, sitting in his office. Those facts simply flew away from his head, replaced by the way her body felt, pressed against his, firm but soft in the right places, how silky her porcelain skin was under the tips of his fingers. Few words, the right touch, and Mikasa had him completely under her spell, and he was more than ready to go along with any crazy plan she was about to whisper to him.
“…fight me.”, she finished, slipping out of his hug and walking towards the ring, leaving him slightly confused and sporting a very unfortunate hard-on. Ah well, seems like the fun must wait, he thought to himself, following her, mentally doing his best to divert the blood from the crotch area. When he finally caught up, Mikasa was already preparing herself, punching the air, doing quicksteps, the routine that Eren knew intimately, but it still made him wonder just how fast the woman can move.
“I won’t go easy on you.”, Eren did try to sound tough, but judging from Mikasa’s smug smile, she wasn’t very intimidated.
“Give it your best.”
Nodding at him, she took her fighting stance, and Eren followed suit, steeling himself. They were both tired from the complete workout, so technically, he had a better chance than usual, but still. Mikasa was Mikasa. Well, time to prove himself. Knowing that he has no chance if he lets her keep the distance, Eren danced to the left, blocking few or Mikasa’s testing punches, looking for a chance, an opening. Ducking under a blow, he spotted one, charging forward and grabbing her waist, making them both fall on the ground together, tangled in a heap. With some luck, Eren managed to come out on top, using his weight to pin her down.
“I’ve got you now.”, he growled, making Mikasa stop in her efforts and look at him, arching an eyebrow.
“Do you now?”
Her body suddenly twisted in his grasp, like a snake, pulling him down with strength that he had no chance of resisting. With a defeated groan, Eren folded, and they switched positions, with Mikasa now triumphantly looming over him, knees pressing into his arms, keeping them grounded, while his face was caged in from both sides by her thighs. The position even allowed her to keep her own arms crossed over her chest, giving the position quite a dominant feeling.
“You were saying?”, she repeated his words from a few minutes ago, apparently very satisfied with herself. When Eren didn’t reply, frowning up at her, she giggled, reaching down to boop his nose.
“This is the part where you surrender, puppy.”, she informed him after.
But Eren shook his head.
“Nope.”
“Baby,”, she increased the pressure for a short time, signifying how helpless he was right now. “you lost. Surrender.”
“Nah.”
“Eren….”
“Maybe I’ll just stay here, the view is pretty great.”
“So what, you’ll just be under me for the rest of your life?”
“There are much worse ways to go than being choked to death by the legs of a beautiful woman.”
Lacking the words or appropriate reaction to answer that, Mikasa gave up, shuffling back until she was straddling his waist instead, gesturing for Eren to sit up. And he did, massaging his neck, because even with all the strong talk on his part, Mikasa thighs had quite a grip.
“Not going to fulfill my wish then?”
“Can’t do that, I’d miss you too much.”
“Hmm, I suppose I should thank you for your mercy.”
She nodded.
“That would be appropriate.”
Deciding on a non-verbal approach, Eren kissed her, and judging from the way she returned his affection it was the right move. The simple touch of lips soon spiraled into something way more feral, as fighting together always got their blood pumping, and it would hardly be the first time that their workout would end up in a more…. intimate physical activity. Angling her head, licking into his mouth, Mikasa seemed more than happy with how their evening was progressing, but before anything could really happen, another voice cut into their moment.
“Look, I’m not a professional anymore, but I’m kinda sure that this is not how a fight is supposed to look like.”
Hearing Levi’s voice while having his hands around Mikasa triggered Eren’s flight instincts, but with her weight still comfortably sitting in his lap, he couldn’t do much. On her part, Mikasa didn’t even try to stand up, looking over her boyfriend’s shoulder at her brother, who regarded them with a partly disgusted face.
“Levi, you need something?”
“First of all, I’d really appreciate if you didn’t start fucking in the middle of my gym.”, that statement made Eren blush, but Mikasa didn’t seem to care much, shrugging.
“Cool. Something else?”
“Your friend called, Jean, said that you talked about some advertisement? Internet or some shit, couldn’t really understand what he was saying.”
“Oh yeah,”, with Eren still under her, slowly accepting his role as a chair, Mikasa scratched the back of her neck, recalling the details of her conversation with Jean, “he said that he can set us up a profile on Instagram or Facebook, get us rolling. I think it’s worth giving it a shot, but you should be the one with the final decision on this matter.”
“How nice of you, letting me decide about my own gym.”
“Yup, I’m just that amazing.”
“All right, fine, I’ll set a meeting with the guy. Good thinking brat.”
Turning, seemingly ready to go back to his own business, Levi took a few steps before stopping himself and turning back to face her.
“Uhm… For this promotion thing, we’ll probably need to snap some pictures, right?”
“Obviously.”
Anyone could take those, but now that her brother mentioned it, Mikasa got an idea. She was spending a lot of her time working with a full set of professionals lately, wasn’t she?
“I could ask someone from Dot’s crew to cover us, if you want.”, she offered, but to her surprise, Levi shook his head.
“I already got someone in mind.”
“Do I know him?”, she asked, but all he did was look away and mutter something she couldn’t catch.
“Or her?”, she tried again, this time making her brother blush very slightly.
Opting not to answer, Levi started moving again, walking away at a brisk pace. With him disappearing back into his office, Mikasa redirected her attention back to Eren, smiling.
“Now where were we?”
But when she moved in for the kiss, Eren leaned backwards, shaking his head.
“I’m sorry Miki, but I’m not sure I can continue with Levi right behind my back.”, risking a quick look towards the office, he sighed, “Dude still scares me sometimes.”
A minor setback, one Mikasa decided she would overcome, no matter what. Levi wouldn’t cockblock her, well, Eren technically, she had no intention of letting him come between her and her pleasure. The days of her big brother banging on the door of her room, asking what the hell is going on were over. To be honest, it happened only once, and she and Eren were way too loud back then, but the point remained. Standing up, she pulled Eren upright, not letting go of his hand as she began walking in the direction of the changing room.
“Where are we going?”, her victim wondered, stumbling after her, as the tempo she set was rather a swift one.
“I need a shower.”, Mikasa stated, not even looking back to see Eren’s reaction. She was rather sure that it would be a happy one. “And I was wondering if you would be so kind as to wash my back?”
If there was one place Levi surely won’t bother them, it was the bathroom. So, leaning forward, Eren whispered his reply into her ear.
“Lead the way.”
The water was cold, but Mikasa’s body was warm, pressed against his, more than making up for it. Her hands were tangled in his hair, which was finally left hanging free, same as hers, the workout bun and ponytail removed. His own fingers were on a mission, traveling over her chiseled back, down the perfect curve of her spine, and finally reaching that bountiful land of her ass, where he could really dig his fingers in and… She hissed in pain, recoiling from his touch, which in turn made him stop immediately.
“Miki? What’s wrong? Did I do something?”
“No, it’s all right, just…”, she looked up, an uneasy expression on her face, “Don’t grope it that much, not yet.”
Curious, he leaned forward, following the path he made with his hands with eyes instead, wanting to see how he caused the discomfort. The bruises on her backside surprised him, the hand-shaped mark on the left cheek especially, but it wasn’t that hard to do a quick memory jog and discover the cause.
“Did I do that?”, he asked, although he of course already knew the answer.
Mikasa rolled her eyes at him.
“No, of course not. It was Mr. Incognito.”
“Right. The bastard, he can’t keep getting away with this.”
But while talking was all fun and stuff, there were other things she came here to do, so Mikasa tapped Eren’s chest, redirecting his attention back from her rear to her face.
“Back to work, soldier. And easy on the ass, that’s an order.”
“Yes ma’am.”
It still felt unreal sometimes, having the dream they worked on for so long actually finished, solid, a thing you could touch with your hands. It was like yesterday, when Sasha barged into his house, presenting her grand idea to him, but here they stood, all of them, the big circle of his friends that made the dream come true. Running his palms over the smooth wooden surface of the counter, Armin made his way into the main room, where everyone was gathered, waiting for… well, something, because judging from the looks on their faces, they didn’t seem to comprehend the situation either.
“It’s done then?”, Carla voiced everyone’s unspoken question, getting Armin’s attention. But before he could answer, the door opened and Sasha appeared, smiling radiantly, while Connie walked in behind her with his usual stoic expression.
“Yes it is! As of today, our bar is finally….”, she stopped in the middle of the room, throwing her hands above her head in celebration, “finished!”
When no one reacted, as the group simply exchanged looks, save for Eren who pulled Mikasa closer with the hand he had coiled around her waist, and whispered something in her ear, grinning. She giggled, and swatted his shoulder playfully, but that was hardly the approval Sasha was looking for.
“This is the part where you clap.”, she informed everyone in the room, frowning.
Round of applause later, started by Armin, Sasha finally smiled, gesturing for the group to calm down.
“Now, since we are all gathered here, I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks. We would have never done it if it wasn’t for you.”
“Where our money?”, someone called, jokingly, making everyone laugh.
“Your long hours without any compensation have come to an end however,”, Sasha continued, “as with the bar finished, me, Connie and Armin, the triumvirate of owners, have decided that it’s time to reward you all. Before we officially open, there will be a day, only for us, and we will do something special together.”
She took a small break, to heighten the anticipation.
“A tournament!”
“…. In what?”, asked Jean, confused just like the rest of them.
“Tekken! The fighting game everyone enjoys.”
Now everyone might have been a bit of a stretch, because while Eren, Mikasa and Jean looked very happy with the choice, others were not exactly ecstatic. It kind of made sense, as the tournament was Eren’s idea in the first place, and he supplied both the console and the game.
“You can count me out.”, Levi shook his head, “I don’t play games.”
“Pussy.”, murmured Hange next to him, but he decided not to react to such cheap provocations.
“I won’t play either.”, Carla chimed in, “But I’ll watch for sure.”
“Oh c’mon guys, it will be fun!”, feeling the need to lift spirits, Connie stepped forward, “I don’t really do stuff like that either, but I’m willing to give it a go. The evening won’t be just that, you can drink, sing karaoke, play darts or pool, whatever you want. Just think of it as a test drive for everything, to see if it works.”
A bit of ruckus later, everyone, save for Levi, seemed to come to terms that it was happening, and the overall mood improved. Hange was furiously abusing the screen of her phone, apparently deep in her research already. Connie, the master of manipulating public opinion.
“We’re gonna give everyone a week while we hammer out the tiniest details left, and you guys better go and start practicing.”, he pointed at the happy gamer trio, “You don’t want to lose to these dorks do you.”
“You’re so going down.”, Eren whispered to Mikasa’s ear, smirking.
“Just like at the gym?”, she teased back, watching in satisfaction as his ears turned a tiny bit red, the memories of the fight and especially what followed coming back.
“One last thing….”, Connie raised his voice to get everyone’s attention back, “If you want to bring someone, anyone, do it, because we need to be ready for a full house. That’s all.”
Sitting on a table, Armin rubbed his chin, thinking. He did know someone who could come, but would she?
“Doc, before we start, I have a question.”
“Sure, what’s up?”
“There’s another thing going down at the bar, the one I partially own. We have a small celebratory party, before opening, and I was thinking…. Would you come?”
“Well this feels like a déjà vu. Didn’t you ask me the same thing before Halloween?”, Hitch pointed out, watching Armin shrug.
“I did. But you enjoyed the thing, didn’t you?”
Oh yes, very much so. And she connected with Jean at the party, that was a nice bonus.
“You know what? Fine, I’ll come. I don’t have to dress as anything this time though, do I?”
“No,”, Armin smiled, “but there is something else.”
Hitch gestured for him to go on.
“There’s a tournament in Tekken, in the evening. You could take part.”
“Ehh, fighting games? I was never a big fan of those. I’m more of a Sims type of a girl.”
“It’s happening in a week, so, take your time, think about it. You don’t have to play If you don’t want to.”
“All right.”, she nodded, taking her notes from the table, “Now with that out of the way, can we start?”
Shifting a bit on the sofa, finding the most comfortable position, Armin nodded. Nodding back, Hitch began their session.
“Tell me about your week then.”
“Darius Zackly! Long time no hear friend.”
“Dude, I’m so fucking sorry.”
“Sorry for what?”
“I told you I’ll squeeze you in between Christmas and new year, right? And it’s been months and I haven’t even called you. Man, work was just freaking insane, and add my permanently nagging wife to the mix and…”
“Hey, it’s fine, there’s no rush.”
“Well I still feel like an asshole. Do you still have the customs for me?”
“Yep, totally. Need to talk with you about a few things.”
“Great. Listen, is next week okay? You can drop by anytime and I promise on my grave, actually no, on my wife’s grave, that I will make time for you.”
“That’s perfect. See you next week?”
“See ya.”
The call ended with a click, and Eren put down the phone, grinning in satisfaction. There were a lot of stuff he needed to discuss with his gear provider, as his mind was running rather wild lately, with all the possibilities and things that could be done…. He could always just blame the shortened work hours, because with a lot of free time on his hands, the ideas just kept coming and coming.
“Who was that?”, Mikasa called from the kitchen, where she was working on their dinner. She volunteered to cook, as Eren was usually the one doing it, and told him that she needs no help, to just go and sit his ass down. Well, Eren wouldn’t argue with that, so as per her wish, he sat down, fiddling with his thumbs while she worked.
“A friend.”, he replied, not wanting to spoil the surprise.
“A friend huh? Do I know him?”
“Maybe you do. Maybe you don’t”
“Is talking straight too hard for you?”, she sighed, turning the meat, “Or did the fear or getting your ass kicked in the tournament already darkening your brain.”
Eren snorted.
“Oh please. I’ll school you so hard, you have no idea.”
For reasons unknown, Mikasa laughed upon hearing that.
“Funny that you would use that word.”
“What word?”
“School.”
“And why is that funny?”
Now it was her turn to be all smug and mysterious.
“You’ll see baby.”
She turned her attention back to the cooking, and Eren was left wondering just what the hell she had planned. Oh well, nothing to do but wait for it anyway. He can handle it, whatever it is.
Hopefully.

Nursery to Reception  - Part Timer to “Big School” and “Pizzagate”
From those days I can still visually picture how we all looked and were, the top music star of the time was Michael Jackson and my long time friend Shayn Thomas is always shocked to remember that I can still picture that he used to have his “thriller” T-Shirt on at school (no uniform at BPS in those days we could wear what we wanted).   As far as nursery goes from memory it felt like one day I was spending days watching tv, going out on the Cardinal Field or playing with my pals round at the twins Duane and Danny’s house, then suddenly I was told “you’re off to nursery tomorrow” by my mother, so off I went with her, I remember first seeing the building, much of which has remained the same to this day with its dark brick oblongs with the white frames and fascias and green pipes as it had at the time.
 I used to come up past the house then known as “The Convent of The Most Holy Cross and Passion” on Town Street, where you could see the school building in the distance, then we would go up the winding path by the terminus to the nursery. In those days we used to be scared of the Nuns as some of them almost had a ghostly appearance but in later life whenever we said a good morning to them they were always found to be polite, its now a house known as “The Old Convent” as you would expect.
At this point that The Nursery and one Classroom next to the big playground were the only “Huts” at the school, the Portakabins were still to be dropped in. Of course, the first job of the day was getting your pumps on which we brought in our pump bags, I had the same one all through primary school hand made by my Aunty Diane.  We were taught by Miss Holgate and Mrs Allen, Miss Holgate had a patient calm and welcoming manner, at nursery I don’t think I ever had a day when I didn’t want to bound in and look forward to it.  
Miss Holgate was one for engaging the group in creative activities, most of which used to involve those old little white gluesticks and pots of glitter, or plenty of scribbling with crayons, Mrs Allen's forte was in storytelling, she was at both that school then Hugh Gaitskell all through my primary years, she had a preference for dressing in trouser suit/waistcoat combos when at Beeston Primary, with her short cut and tinted glasses, we must have been one of her early classes before she moved into single class teaching.  She could be calm and soft-spoken with a slight depth to her voice but did not take any nonsense and the tone she used if there was any made that clear to not go too far.  
Playtimes were spent between us all either trying to cram ourselves into the little wendy house in the playground, throwing coits on to poles, playing with the rocking horse or other similar toys or trying to get first dibs on an old fashioned metal tricycle so we could dash around doing circles of the yard, it was much faster than all the other plastic bikes and push cars and made you feel a bit more grown-up. The days were always finished off with a little story on the carpet and it was just a really enjoyable introduction to school life.
The one-story I remember in particular then we were read a few times was "Funnybones" with the opening line of “in a dark dark house on a dark dark night” Mrs Allen did a great interpretation of it. Some of my longest and oldest friends were in this class including  Ben Woodburn, Shayn Thomas and Phil Mitchell, we all grew up on the Cardinals and Waincliffes and in Ben and Phil's case spent our entire school years in the same schools. Some of the other kids locally would go to the nursery in Cottingley at that time, who would then come and join us for “Big school”.
Beeston Primary Reception Class 0W / RW
For my introduction to mainstream schooling reception I was taught by the then Miss Harriet Wood (later to be Mrs Ansell-Wood), she was a fantastic teacher, she had a very calming presence, Tall with a blonde bob, a smile for everyone and welcoming manner about her, in later life she also then moved on to what became Hugh Gaitskell primary after the middle schools were abolished in the area, in what has become a recurring theme over the years some of my friends who came from different parts of Yorkshire, and even Europe became work colleagues with her in their early teaching days and every one of them has nothing but kind words to speak of her.
One particular time I was falsely accused of filling a crisp packet full of water and throwing it on my older mate Duane's head, a likely story indeed I wouldn’t even know how to do that back then, despite being an unproven allegation I was taken inside for a dressing down,  At first I was just defensive and angry in my reaction to the point of being hysterical due to knowing I'd not done this. I remember Miss Wood did a marvellous job of calmly settling me back down, giving a reassuring hand until I could explain myself and all was forgiven. Kindness and understanding always live long in the memory.
We would work our way through the colours and levels of our maths books, learning to read via the Collins “one two three and away” books, learning about the Village with 3 corners and its inhabitants Roger Red Hat, Billy Blue hat and Jonathan and Jennifer Yellow Hat (The first Hart to Hart reference in this series).
We learnt to put words and sentences together using “Letra sets”  that were in giant binders and looking back on it reminded me a bit like a more word-based version of having your scrabble letters out but filling in the words!  
We would go to the main hall and take part in “music and movement” which involved  sort of classical piece from the sound system playing while we would attempt various shapes or swop from hopping to trotting, skipping or other such movements to the soundtrack. With a few games of musical statues thrown in at the end for good measure!
If we did PE then the old blue mats would be brought out for doing little forward rolls and the old balance beams with the hooks on and various other bits of apparatus would appear, all the time this was carried out barefoot which in winter was freezing as well as being very sore on your feet and not so fun a landing if you took a wrong step.
On my little table, I was sat with Richard Leach (who met his wife at the school who are happily together to this day), Matthew Jeffers, James Ratcliffe, Sophie Grant and Stephen Hullock.
Stephens grandfather was the school caretaker for many years, there were a lot of days you would see him when we were out in the playground, he would be on the roof of the school retrieving various footballs and items that had been dispatched to the roof the night before by the kids from the Heathcroft estate during their football games or whatever other antics they chose to partake in, he would be greeted by a cheer as some of the balls were thrown back down into the playground. Talking of which Ste’s Grandfather on his dads' side was none other than Leeds United legend Jimmy Dunn, his other grandkids also went to our school and you can find his name on Bremner Square at the ground, check it out and if he is a player from before your time read him up and learn about his career he was a top player.
The year group was based at the back end of the school that faces the Heathcroft Estate, the classrooms would usually have one wall separating them at the side with a large curtain at the end of each classroom being our way in and out which would then be closed for privacy at reading times our more “creative” play and lessons took place in what was known as the “Wet Area” where we would be able to get up to the more messy types of play, such as sandpits and making Papier Mache items by sticking bits of old newspaper to balloons, the area was overseen by Miss Barker (she still had her maiden name then) who also had the job of patching us up if we fell in the playground complete with that yellow spray that used to sting like mad and leave you smelling like TCP.  Miss Barker always had a bit of glam and somehow managed to work in the messiest part of school yet always be dressed immaculately and still end the day still resembling Joan Collins.
The neighbouring class was Mr Johnson's class (later to be the Husband of the aforementioned Miss Barker).  Mr Johnson was a big part of the school for many years, he had a great positive influence on many of us growing up, he was keen on his sport and football which i will go into more in later chapters, in his younger days, he had a moustache to rival Nigel Mansell but a lot more hair on top, at playtimes our year group had the little playground facing down towards the hill where we would run around playing “What time is it Mr Wolf” or trying to do the hops skips and jumps on the painted sections on the playground floor, recreate our favourite superheroes by buttoning our coats into capes battling whichever poor soul was nominated to be the baddie.
 It was also in this playground where I first found out about one of my lifelong passions, before then I only knew of Everton and Liverpool as football teams (I was only 4 years old so only ever saw the cup final up to then, which you may recall was played out by those two teams in 1986), we always saw the old gigantic floodlights and stadium down the hill, you couldn’t miss them, then one day in the distance I noticed some men were running up and down Fullerton Park in white tops, when it was still the training ground, I asked Mr Johnson who was on Duty, in his normal attire of polo shirt and jeans with this white winter coat and coffee in hand, “what's that down there sir” to which he then told me it was a football team called Leeds United, I asked him if they played Liverpool but he said they played in division two, so I credit him with the introduction as from there I looked out for them on the local news or tv when football was mentioned and along with the encouragement of my neighbours from the Wales family i was set to be a fan for life. Nice one sir!
This fact was also further made clear to us throughout the years by Mrs Robinson, one of the teachers who lived locally, she was a class teacher of many of my friends over the years and occasionally took the odd lesson of mine, she was notably famous in school for having an array of Leeds United artefacts both in her car and in the classroom, she would also wear the Leeds Hats or Scarves if on duty in winter, She also had a fondness for collecting items relating to Owls, another symbol of the city, she had a great rapport with all the students in the school and was seen as being very cool, in those days everyone at school still supported Leeds and any other team was out of the question, much like it hopefully will again in this new rebirth we are seeing at the moment.
Going back to the “wet area”  this is also where the younger year groups would be served lunch as we had our first experience of “school dinners” the dinners at BPS were generally very good, the kitchen led by Mrs Willens and her team, which at then included Mrs Slight (who I now know as Gill, my classmate Amy’s mum and a good friend of my family Sunday afternoon pub trips and Darts and Dominoes) who later also then became a lunchtime supervisor.
We were served dinners on giant plastic trays that were split into segments, one for the main meal, one for your drink and biscuit (the second one after the then customary little bottle of milk in the morning part of the day) and one for the dessert or pudding as we say in LS11.
I used to love the puddings, Jam sponge or Chocolate Cake, always followed with a generous ladle of custard served from giant metal urns, and the top one which was the Lemon Meringue, which was like a new world to me in terms of food but I loved it, however, I was never as fussy about the main meal, which would get me into trouble from time to time, This is how we would also first encounter the famous Lunchtime Supervisor Miss Mary and her cohorts which at this point in time included Mrs Preston and Mrs Shipman (whose son Damian was also in my class) .
Once we had all dutifully lined up to get our dinners and then take them back to our places, in what became commonplace at the school the dinner ladies would circle the tables armed with their dishcloths, in between wiping up they would be checking first to make sure that no one was misbehaving or throwing food around, but their key function at that time seemed to be to ensure that we all ate properly or as much as possible, once we had reached however far we could manage with our main we would have to sit with our hands up and then ask their permission to “turn round” aka “I've had enough of that can I have my dessert please” in our inner thinking. It was at their discretion if we were permitted to do this unless you had eaten all the lot which meant you could turn round anyway.  
One of these particular times had a lasting impression on my food habits for many years. Pizza was on the menu, I'd never had it before, didn’t like the look, smell or taste of it (nothing like the ones you get in a shop) I couldn’t face it. Asked to turn round, Mrs Preston with her dark bob and circular glasses was not having any of it, neither was I, so 15 minutes later I was still sat there, in tears being told I could not leave my seat until I ate it, everyone else was in the playground by this time, it was a battle of wits and in the end, I was defeated and had to sit there and eat every mouthful of it until it was gone, at which point I was done in, had my pudding then got to join my friends for about 5 minutes before we had to go back in, red-faced puffy-eyed, it must have had a lasting effect, it was noted in future by my parents that I didn't like pizza and it put me off eating it until my mid-20s, it goes to show that some of Sigmund Freud's theories definitely hold some gravitas!
Although that encounter with her was a bit more traumatic, Mrs Preston was only doing what all the dinner ladies then would do, a few friends have told me they had similar encounters with the other dinner ladies with the foods they were not keen on, they were trying to ensure we eat and try different foods, she never held it against me as the rest of the time she was always a very approachable and had a neighbourly manner about her, she has been a stalwart and mainstay of the school for decades and moved into working in the school offices in later years. She has given decades of her life to that school and is to be applauded.  
A true servant to the school on every level.

Background Story - Nursery years and “Big School”
So firstly to give you some background to the author.
I was born Jonathan Lee Hart September 21st 1982 at Hyde Terrace Hospital, The Eldest of  2 children on my Mothers side and Third born of 11 on my Fathers.   Both my parents lived in Beeston. I was raised at 3 Cardinal Square on the council estate where I lived initially with My Mother, Grandad and Grandma and 2 of my Aunts who then moved out in my early primary years as they went about their adult lives.   My family have lived on Cardinal Square since the day the houses were first to complete, something which is true in the case of both grandparents I grew up with, My grandfather Les lived on the “Little Square” just 5 doors down from where he then made his Marital home with Hetty, who grew up at 105 Cardinal Square with her parents, one of my earliest memories is going up the street with her to see my great-grandma Young every now and then, in later years my Aunt Janet moved into 103 and My mother Carol still lives at number 3 to this very day, where she previously grew up with her Brother Ronnie and her sisters Susan, Janet, Diane and Linda. Janet still also works in the area at Cardinal Court just behind where she grew up. My Grandfather on my Dads side also spent his final years on the neighbouring streets following his retirement from the city centre pub trade.
I spent much of my early working life in the area, from evenings on the phone at Weatherlite Windows,  Abbseal and then later Royal Mail at Holbeck Delivery office,  I can still be seen in the area usually playing the guitar at one of the local pubs or clubs with The Mercs many times a year when we are not in the midst of a Global Pandemic. Beeston is in my blood.
My closest friends from the street the Richmond, Giles and Naismith families go back 3 generations, our parents and grandparents were friends since childhood, the estate has been called a few names over the years but in my history growing up it was a close-knit area, many friends from there I have kept to this day, it made me who I am and I would not have changed that for anything.
This page is more focused on my memories of school days, less so on individual pupils but more the type of education we got and the teachers we encountered,  I hope when complete others can contribute theirs from their times, most prominently on the teachers at the schools who helped to shape the lives we now live and the ways we learnt and types of lessons.  
Tied into this also will be the local clubs I got to take part in and the many great volunteers who gave up their time for us in and out of school, So let’s get cracking and go to Beeston Primary School Nursery. Starting with Key Stage one for today's episode, one thing I am short on is photos of the days, I am in the process of tracking them down and then will update the page as I get them to hopefully create a bit of an archive, the idea of this is to recognise the efforts of the teachers and people in the area who invested the time in ourselves our education but also to allow our future generations to have an idea of how school life has changed so much in a few decades.
If people want to send photos to add to the page from the time feel free to put them in the comments or drop me a Facebook message with them.
Nursery
As far as nursery goes from memory it felt like one day I was spending days watching tv, going out on the Cardinal Field or playing with my pals round at the twins Duane and Danny’s house, then suddenly I was told “you’re off to nursery tomorrow” by my mother, so off I went, I remember first seeing the building, much of which has remained the same to this day with its dark brick oblongs with the white frames and fascias, I used to come up past the old Convent of The Most Holy Cross and Passion on Town Street, where you could see the building in the distance then we would go up the winding path by the terminus to the nursery.

At this point that was the only “Hut” at the school, the portakabins were still to be dropped in. Of course, the first job of the day was getting your pumps on duly brought in our pump bags, I had the same one all through primary school hand made by my Aunty Diane.   We were taught by Miss Holgate and Mrs Allen, Miss Holgate had a patient calm and welcoming manner, at nursery I don’t think I ever had a day when I didn’t want to bound in and look forward to it.
