“Tetsu, what are you doing?” Aomine glanced down, seeing familiar pale hands slip into his apron and watched curiously as the hidden fingers smoothed down his stomach.

“I’m seducing you.” Kuroko replied simply, pressing his lips against Aomine’s spine and curling his arms around his firm torso.

A small smirk tugged at the corner of his lips and he chuckled, “You don’t say?”

In the early days, there had always been a sort of unspoken rule about their dating style. At least, that was the impression that Onoda was under. He’d never seen any sort of disagreement about where they’d go on their dates or when and they always went together. He liked that. The fact that they could all go together and there was never any strain. Like something right out of a shoujo manga.

Of course, the truth of the matter was that just because Onoda didn’t see it, didn’t mean the conflict wasn’t there.

When Onoda wasn’t around, their dating life was of top priority between Imaizumi and Naruko. They’d long since laid down ground rules, even before the both of them had confessed to Onoda.

No making Onoda upset, no excessive arguing in front of him, always go together and, most importantly, no attempts to win him over individually.

It had been the most important rule in those days. The rivalry for Onoda’s affection was still strong back then.

That is, until Naruko grew impatient and when Imaizumi was busy with homework (something Naruko made a point to forget about), he had taken Onoda out alone to a little known café in an attempt to win him over. He bought the boy lunch and tried to impress him with his consumption of black coffee, trying to appear more mature and the obvious choice. Despite that Naruko seemed to have difficulty choking it down, Onoda was his regular brand of impressed. Nothing particularly special.

His attempt to win Onoda over alone had been unsuccessful… and came with consequences.

When Imaizumi found out about their little side date (something Onoda had brought up before Naruko could stop him), he’d pulled Naruko aside and demanded one of his own.

They’d had an agreement, after all.

They’d agreed to try and love Onoda equally as the smaller boy did them.

Naruko reluctantly surrendered and soon Imaizumi got his wish.

It wasn’t a couple weeks later that the new Love Hime movie would be released in theatres and he had already arranged tickets for the both of them.

True to Imaizumi’s wish, he got his date. Unfortunately, all the ideas he’d originally had to woo Onoda in the intimate setting of a dark theatre had gone up in smoke when the both of them had become too invested in the movie to consider anything else.

‘Dammit.’ He thought to himself as they stepped out of the theater and into the dimming light of the setting sun. ‘I missed my chance…’

“Wahh, that movie was so good!” Onoda gushed, practically sparkling as he walked beside Imaizumi, fists clenched before himself. “The ending was so heartwarming.” He turned to him and grinned widely. “Thanks for taking me, Imaizumi-kun! I had a lot of fun! It’s a pity Naruko couldn’t come too. I bet he’d have liked it!”

Imaizumi watched that grin for a moment before a quiet smile slid onto his lips.

He had a bit of an epiphany.

Maybe, he contemplated, maybe this was okay. Maybe they didn’t need to compete for his affections. Onoda seemed happy to simply be with them. If something as simple as that could bring about such a warm smile, wasn’t that worth taking a bit of a step back?

Naruko’s single attempt had clearly failed. Imaizumi hadn’t succeeded any either. Yet Onoda remained happily oblivious to their rivalry, content to simply spend the time with them and it appeared that his favors hadn’t shifted in either direction.

Maybe, he concluded, maybe they could learn to do the same. Simply enjoy each other’s presence.

Imaizumi opened his mouth to reply to him when—

“Ah!! What took you so long?!”

The two of them looked up to find a rather frustrated looking Naruko standing out on the sidewalk.

“Naruko! What are you doing here?” Onoda questioned, blinking in surprise. “I thought you wanted to practice cycling today.”

“Eh? Cycling?” Naruko questioned, looking up at Imaizumi for clarification before the stood up tall, cleared his throat and shrugged, that smug smile present. “I finished already, of course! Who do you think I am?”

“Wooahh~” Onoda gushed, grinning widely. “You keep getting faster, Naruko! So cool…”

Naruko beamed, pleased with the compliment a moment before he startled and then clenched his fist. “Wait, that’s not the point! What took you guys so long?! The movie was supposed to finish at 7:30! I’ve been waiting out here half ‘n hou—uuuuuuuaaaaaaa minute. Half a minute. I just drove up, in fact!” He replies with a nervous laugh.

Imaizumi gave him a blank look – but Onoda doesn’t seem to notice. He’d simply given Naruko that bright smile. “We stayed to watch the credits to see if there was anything extra.”

“Onoda wouldn’t stop crying.” Imaizumi corrected.

Onoda startled, a pink blush adorning his face before he looked up at Imaizumi in a panic. “Ahhh!!! Don’t tell Naruko that!!”

Naruko grinned widely. “Heh, I bet you weren’t the only one crying.” He point a finger at Imaizumi’s face. “Your eyes are still wet.”

Imaizumi looks away nonchalant. “You’re imagining it.”

“Ah!!” Naruko shouts. “Don’t ignore me!!”

Onoda looked between them and grins widely. While they bickered, Onoda moved over and reached a hand out to tuck his fingers into Imaizumi’s hand. Their bickering had ceased. They both looked to the smaller boy. Onoda looked up at Imaizumi with a smile – which Imaizumi soon returned with one of his simple ones. He tucked his free hand into his pocket.

Naruko watched the both of them with increasing horror. It had been written across his face, the pain that he’d be left behind – when Onoda reached his other hand out to him with the same smile.

“Let’s go home, Naruko.”

The red head looked down at his hand a moment and light up. “Okay! Just– wait a second!” He turned and jogged down the street a little, grabbing his road racer and walking it up to them. With his one hand on the handlebars so he could steer it down the sidewalk, he slipped his fingers around Onoda’s awaiting hand. “Let’s go!”

Imaizumi passed Naruko a look over Onoda’s head, a knowing sort of smile – a smile that Naruko wound up returning when they started on their way and Onoda started gushing about the movie once more.

Nowadays, older and living together in their first apartment, things weren’t so complicated anymore. They slept in the same bed. They exchanged good morning kisses over breakfast and good night cuddles when it came time for sleeping. Imaizumi came and went in his suit and tie, Naruko with his dirty work clothes and Onoda held down the house until it was time for him to leave on his teaching job.

And you know, a rivalry for Onoda’s love became a thing of the past. They grew to deal. They grew to compromise. Then, eventually, they grew to hold the same affection for one another that Onoda held for them.

It was never a question.

It was never a feeling to fight.

It was just easy.

Each kiss at a time, their love became easier until finally it wasn’t a question but a way of living.

At the end of the day when everyone returned home, tired and weary, they were happy.

And wasn’t that, after all, all that had really mattered?

“Oi, Harucchi!!”

As it was often with Sawamura Eijun, he could be heard before you even saw him. Haruichi’s steps skipped in surprise, digging his heel into the ground as he turned. Through the breaks in his bangs, he could see the overly excited pitcher waving his hand in the air; like somehow, Haruichi could possibly miss him.

He smiled. “Eijun-kun.” Raising one hand, the other clutching a small bag to his chest, he gives a wave in return. He lowers his hand to absently adjust the scarf tugged around his neck when suddenly Eijun’s foot catches what must have been a patch of ice and proceeds to have a near theatrical tumble into the snow.

Startling, Haru’s eyes go wide and he hurries over with an alarmed, “Eijun-kun!!”

Dropping to his knees, he sets the gift bag aside and promptly reaches for his boyfriend’s shoulder – but stops short when he hear a muffled laugh. Slowly and with a groan, the form shifts, shoulders curling and raising as he sits up. There is snow covering his face, tucked away in the collar of his jacket and already dripping from his chin.

Eijun’s smile is radiant as ever and even when his nose starts to drip blood, his attention remains on Haru. “Merry Christmas, Harucchi!”

A slight panic runs through Haru at the sight of the blood and he quickly removes his gloves to start digging around in his pockets. “Eijun-kun, you’re bleeding!”

“Am I?” Eijun blinks, reaching up to touch his nose and when the mitten is pulled away to reveal red, he shouts. “Ah!! I’m bleeding!!”

Haru pulls items out of his jacket pocket and finally finds a crumpled up napkin from a fast food place. Folding it quickly, he reaches it over and holds it over his nose, pinching at it and gives a sigh.

A coy smile creeps onto his lips as Eijun reaches up to take over the task.

“Merry Christmas, Eijun-kun.” Haru greets softly.

The response he gets is another one of his million watt smiles, one that is covered by his hand but peaks through by the way the edges of his mouth tug at the line of his jaw.

Honestly, what was he going to do with him?


“What’s this?” Blinking, Haru reaches for the thin box that Furuya hands to him wordlessly.

It’s nothing spectacular, a parcel package paper wrapped box that couldn’t have been much bigger than a box toothpaste comes in. As it’s placed into his hands, it’s so light that Haru looks a bit confused behind the safety of his bangs.

“Open it.” Furuya replies quietly, an eager sort of look on his neutral expression. It’s in the slight pink that settles on his cheeks. It’s in the way he can’t keep his eyes off the little Christmas gift. How his response isn’t anything but his usual direct speech.

Not seeing any reason to protest, Haru takes care on ripping the paper away and letting it fall to the ground. He’ll pick it up later. The box under the paper isn’t flashy either but as he lifts the lid to peak inside, the lack of weight suddenly becomes clear.

Haru’s cheeks warm.

Furuya shifts on his feet nervously.

“It’s mistletoe.” He finally speaks, lifting up the single branch. “Wait, is this real?”

A single nod is Furuya’s response. “Senpai said it’s special; that I should give it to you.”

“Senpai?” Haru questions, head tilting but notes how Furuya gets tight lipped. Ah. A smile finds it’s way onto his face.

So he’d asked one of their senpai what to get him? Furuya must have had trouble thinking of a Christmas gift…

“Well, you know, you’re usually supposed to hang mistletoe…” Haru replies, looking up at the ceiling and then back to Furuya with an increasing flush.

“I didn’t want to.” He replies, shaking his head. A sort of endearing seriousness crosses his expression. “I didn’t want anybody else to walk under it.”

“O-Oh.” Haru stutters lamely, not having expected that sort of response. The thought makes his stomach warm.

A silence falls between them, a nervous energy as neither can seem to find the appropriate words. Hearts skip beats. Breathing gets a little difficult.

Finally, Furuya opens his mouth – only to lose the words as Haru moves.

Lifting the branch up, the mistletoe soon hangs from his fingers above his head. The colour of his face burns a bright red and if it wasn’t for the cover of his bangs, it would be apparent how tightly shut he was closing his eyes.

There is another moment of silence; of hesitation.

Then Furuya ducks down, his own blush increasing as he places a soft, slow peck to his lips. He lingers there, even as he pulls away, gaze flicking up to catch a glimpse of Haru’s eyes behind his hair. A soft pink eye peaks open slowly, returning the loving stare.

“… Merry Christmas, Haruichi-kun.”


“Haruuuuuu. Hurry up, the special is starting!!”

Grabbing the bowl of popcorn off the counter, Haruichi makes his way into the living room where Kuramochi sat dead centre, cross legged and grinning. Upon seeing the return of his boyfriend, he pats the bit of couch visible between his legs. “Come on! Sit!”

Haru smiles, shifting over and soon coming to sit between his legs, resting back against Kuramochi’s awaiting chest and giggling as the man wraps his arms around him and rests his chin on his shoulder. He nuzzles into his neck, placing a couple kisses along the skin he finds there.

“Kuramochi-kun, you’re supposed to be watching the movie. You’re the one that’s never seen it.”

“Youichi.” He corrects against his skin. “We’ve been dating for over six months. It’s Youichi.”

Haru turns a bit pink. “Sorry, Youichi-kun.”

“No.” He grumbles, shifting to speak into his ear. “Yo-u-i-chi.”

He feels each syllable shiver down his spine, his ear tingling from having Kuramochi’s lips brush against sensitive skin.

“Come on, Ryousuke gets a special title. Can’t you at least call me by my first name?” He adds.

Haru opens his mouth to respond when suddenly the voice that replies doesn’t belong to him.

“Well, he’s not about to call me Kominato.”

The two turn to look behind them where Ryousuke stands with his hand on his hip.

Haru brightens immediately. “Aniki!”

Kuramochi looks surprised. “Wait, weren’t you supposed to be pulling a double shift?”

“I got it covered. What’s this; trying to have a date when I’m not home?”

“Youichi-kun hasn’t seen this Christmas special before.” Haru replies, pointing to the TV.

Ryousuke looks up at the TV, watching a moment before a smirk pulls onto his face. His gaze flicks down to Kuramochi, who pointedly looks away. “Oh, really? Did he tell you that?”

“You know what? Shut up. You two always have dates when I’m at work.” Kuramochi protests, huffing.

“That’s because I’m the oldest.” He replies absently.

“What? That doesn’t make any sen-!” Kuramochi starts but Ryousuke reaches a hand up to plant over his mouth with a smug look. Before he can try to break free of the hold, Ryousuke leans down and reaches over for Haru. His fingers are gentle as he tips Haru’s chin up and steals a soft kiss from his otouto. Haru flushes happily, returning it softly until Ryousuke pulls away.

“Welcome home, Aniki.” He responds softly.

“Merry Christmas, Haruichi.” He responds in kind before pulling back to finally release his hand from Kuramochi.

“Oi, where’s mine, jerk?” He huffs and Ryousuke turns his hand to tip Kuramochi’s head back by his chin. Bending over the back of the couch, he smirks down at him.

“Remind me why we love you; you’re such an idiot.” He responds before bending down to place his next kiss against his lips.

Haru watches the two of them, giggling softly. “Are you going to come watch with us, Aniki?”

Ryousuke pulls back and places a hand on the back before hopping over. He slumps against Kuramochi and reaches an arm over, tugging Haru so that he’s nestled more neatly between them. Haru shifts, resting comfortably between their shoulders as Kuramochi places a kiss behind his ear and Ryousuke reaches an arm to wrap around Haru’s waist.

“Pass the popcorn.”
