Pairing: Tsukishima x Hinata
~ Summary ~
After one of Hinata’s spike accidentally hit Kageyama, Hinata began to pass more and more time with Tsukishima, who slowly began to fall for the little orange-haired boy. This story contains 5 parts, due to the length of each part, I will divide each part in two.
“You stupid idiot!! Are you brain death? How many time I told you to be careful of your surroundings” yell Kageyama holding the left side of his face.
Saying Kageyama was piss-off, would probably be an understatement. If he could have kill Hinata he would have done it. A first years was tossing ball for Hinata and one of the orange-haired spike of hit full speed Kageyama. The latter was now ready to jump on the little number 10 to strangled him.
“ENOUGH!!” The scream was coming from coach Ukai “Kageyama you either calm down or get out of the gym, Hinata apologize more than once” he said.
“That fucking idiot…” began to say Kageyama.
“Kageyama get out!!!” yell Ukai, it was the first time they were seeing the coach like this him who is usually calm, he was now losing his patience over Kageyama attitude. “You knew they were practicing, you knew you could get hit if you passed and you still decided to pass.” added Ukai with a calmer tone.
Kageyama looked at his coach and then looked at Hinata “That stupid shrimp” he thought “it’s all his fault”. He walked toward the exit of the gym looking at Hinata with the eyes full of hate.
Hinata looked at Kageyama getting out of the gym, he was feeling bad for the number 9, he didn’t wanted that, but it wasn’t his fault. If Kageyama haven’t decide to pass when the newbie toss the ball he wouldn’t have been hit by the ball. Tanaka walk toward him and pat him on the head.
“Don’t worry, everything is gonna be alright tomorrow” said Tanaka.
“You think Tanaka-senpai?” asked the little orange-haired young man.
“Yes, you will see” he replied with a smile “You know how he is”.
“Okay!!” said Hinata, he was feeling a bit better now the new vice-captain of Karasuno had reassured him.
After Kageyama had left the gym, the practice continue, no one was thinking about it anymore, they were use to Kageyama bad temper. They all thought everything would be okay tomorrow.
The next day, Hinata was on his bike heading for the school. Crossing the street, he saw Kageyama from afar, he hit the pedals of his bike hard to quickly get to his teammate.
“Kageyama!” cheerfully said Hinata once he was close to him.
“Get away from me!!” harshly replied Kageyama.
“Still mad at me? Look Kageyama I’m really sorry, but you are the one who pass when I hit the ball” started to plead Hinata.
“FUCK OFF GET AWAY FROM ME!!” yell Kageyama looking at Hinata in the eyes
Hinata was wondering why he haven’t saw it before, Kageyama had a huge black eye on the left side, he couldn’t fully open his left eye.
“Kag…” Hinata didn’t know what to say, he was feeling even worse now, he knew Kageyama will not be able to practice for a while.
Hinata gave a hit to his bike pedals and left Kageyama behind. He knew trying to talk to him will be no use. Even if he wasn’t the one at fault Hinata knew he was the one that had I hit the ball. “Even if that first year tossed it, I shouldn’t have hit it, I should have wait Kageyama pass…But I didn’t even saw him passing!” he thought “No more toss for me from him I guess…”.
The first part of the day passed and the lunch time came, Hinata would normally eat with Kageyama, but he knew it wasn’t an option, therefore he try to look for new lunch buddies.
He founded Yamaguchi and Tsukishima eating at a table in the cafeteria, he walk to them and ask if he could eat with them. Yamaguchi looked at his best friend waiting for him to answer.
“The king chased you from his castle” asked the tall number 11.
“hummm Kageyama yell at me this morning, he told me to get away from him” slowly replied Hinata ignoring Tsukishima sarcasm.
“Pfff of course with the black eye you gave him” said Tsukishima.
“Tsukki!!” quickly said Yamaguchi seeing how bad was feeling Hinata “Here sit beside me” he added.
“You are sure?” asked Hinata looking at Tsukishima from the corner of his eyes.
“Yes don’t mind him” answered Yamaguchi “it’s Tsukki after all” he added with a smile.
“Thanks” replied Hinata with a weak smile.
After the lunch, the rest of the day passed quite fast and Hinata began to get nervous, he was wondering if Kageyama would be there or not. He got to the changing room, everyone was there except the genius setter. In the gym coach Ukai announced Kageyama would not be attending to the practice for about a week. The uneasy feeling Hinata had inside him was growing bigger, since he was feeling bad for what he done to Kageyama, Hinata started to think he should maybe come back to the gym when Tobio will be back.
He was about to go talk to the coach when Nishinoya stop him. He told him he knew what he was thinking and that it was pointless, it wasn’t his fault. Instead of dwelling over what happened to Kageyama, he should help the new kid with their toss “and I will receive them with the rolling thunder” he added miming the movement. The cheerful attitude of his small senpai had a positive effect on him and Hinata decide to stay for the practice.
The next day come and once again he ate with Yamaguchi and Tsukishima and the day after and after. If at first Kei was annoyed by Hinata presence and never missed an occasion to add a bit of salt I the little orange-haired life, after the fourth day he was quite of use to it, even if he was still slightly annoyed by Hinata overly cheerful attitude.
The week passed and Kageyama came back, he avoided Hinata for the most part of the practice, while he was hurt by the attitude of his teammate, Hinata couldn’t do anything about it. When the club activities was about to end, Kageyama walked toward Hinata and told him he had to speak to him outside. Hinata wasn’t so sure about, will Tobio will yell at him again or talk calmly? Will he hit him? The small number 10 didn’t want to go outside alone with Kageyama, so he look around to see if he could find someone to watch over them, but everyone was still practicing. Seeing his teammate was getting impatient, Hinata reluctantly followed him outside.
From the other side of the gym, Tsukishima had witness everything and saw Kageyama bring Hinata outside. He let out a sigh and told Yamaguchi to wait, he had something to do and walk toward the exit of the gym, he looked around but didn’t see where Tobio had brought the little decoy. “So bothersome why he had to go that far” he thought when he noticed them near the stair leading to changing room.
Closer he was getting, better he was hearing the conversation, apparently Kageyama had apologize for his attitude, but he was still putting all the fault on Hinata. The small orange-haired boy try to apologize once again. Hearing Hinata apologizing for something that wasn’t all his fault annoyed Tsukishima even more.
“There you are, Hinata come he have to practice your timing for the block” said Tsukishima interrupting the conversation.
“Get back to the gym Tsukishima we are busy talking” harshly replied Kageyama.
“I would ask to his majesty to continue this talk later” said Tsukishima with a smirk.
“You…” Kageyama didn’t finished his sentenced, instead he looked at Hinata and told him to get away from him.
Hinata looked at his teammate and turn back to go to the gym followed by Tsukishima. Since the tall number 11 had told them they would practice blocking timing, they were better doing it.
After they had left the school ground, Yamaguchi question his friend on the reason why he had left the practice for a few minutes. Tsukishima let out a sigh and explain he had seen Kageyama bringing Hinata outside for a talk. He just wanted to make sure Tobio doesn’t yell once again at Hinata for no reason.
“Wait are you saying you was watching over Hinata” asked the pinch server.
“Shut up Yam, I just wanted to make sure that idiot doesn’t become all gloomy once again. Seeing him jumping around from excitement for no reason is still less annoying than hearing him complaining about how that stupid King is mean to him.” replied Tsukishima.
“Haha let’s say I believe you” replied Yamaguchi with a smile.
“Shut up Yamaguchi” said Tsukishima annoyed.
