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.
The next day, Hinata came to eat once again with the pair. Tsukishima looked at the little orange-haired boy who was taking place beside Yamaguchi. He was talking about his math class, stating he didn’t really understand what the teacher was saying.
“…Ukki can maybe help you. Tsukki..? Tsuuuukkiiiiii ?The earth is calling Tsukki” Said Yamaguchi
“What?!” quickly replied Tsukishima who didn’t heard everything his friend said
“I said you could help Hinata with his math lesson, he had some problems to understand” answered Yamaguchi
“Why me? I don’t like helping idiot” stated Tsukishima
“Tsukkiii, you are the most intelligent” said Yamaguchi hoping it will work
“Flattery will lead you nowhere” coldly said Tsukishima avoiding Hinata’s eyes
“Please Tsukishima, can you help me with my Math class?” begged Hinata “I’ll do everything you want!”
Tsukishima looked at Hinata who had join his hand together while looking at him with his big brown eyes like a puppy waiting for his owner to play with him. Karasuno’s blocker let out an annoyed sigh
“Alright, but if you annoyed me too much with your question I’m leaving” said Tsukishima
“Okay” replied Hinata with a big smile
Tsukishima felt like he was blushing and tried to hide it away, it wasn’t the first time someone was looking at him like that, but it was the first time he reacted that way, not only he blushed but this reaction was cause by Hinata and he didn’t understand why he reacted that way in front of that little shrimp big smile.
“I’ll go to your home tonight after the practice” said Tsukishima avoiding Hinata’s big brown eyes.
“No problem! Gonna let know my mom! Are you staying for dinner? She might make a special dessert if you stay” said Hinata excited to have his teammate over tonight
“Ya…I will” shyly replied Tsukishima looking away still trying to hide his rosie cheeks
The bell marking the end of the lunchtime rang and the trio get back in their respective classroom.
After the classes, before the practice started, Hinata called his mother to let her know he will have a friend over and he will stay for dinner. He was really excited and ask her to bake a special dessert. Practice over Tsukishima and Hinata headed for the little number ten home.
“Is it still far” asked Tsukishima tired by the walk “Maybe we should have gone to my home”
“Oh..we are almost there” replied Hinata who was fearing Tsukishima would turn back annoyed by the long walk to Hinata’s home. “Maybe you want to get on the on the bike” he asked “you will just have to hold on me”
“You are probably not strong enough to carry us both” replied Tsukishima trying to not look to flustered by the thought of holding Hinata by the waist
“Hey! If you don’t want to get on it you just have to say it” quickly said Hinata before adding they will reaching his home soon anyway.
Which was the true, they could see the light of Hinata’s home. “Finally” mumbled Tsukishima once they were in front of the house. He watched Hinata putting away his bike and followed him in inside the house.
“MOM! WE ARE HOME!” He shout across the house
“Oh! Here you are, you must be hungry, the diner his almost ready” said Mrs Hinata.
“Thank you for having me” replied Tsukishima while bowing “I’m Tsukishima Kei, I’m part the Karasuno volleyball team with Hinata”
“Oh! Really happy to meet you” replied Hinata’s mom with a smile before going back to the kitchen.
Tsukishima looked Hinata’s mom walking away and saw running a mini Shouyou toward them
“BIG BROTHER!!” scream from happiness the mini orange-haired girl
“Oh Natsu!!” said Hinata with a warm smile “I’m happy to present you Tsukishima, we are on the same team”
“Ooohhh” said the little girl hiding behind her brother “he is big big”
“Big big ?” repeated Tsukishima after her
“Ha ha, yes Natsu he is really tall” said Hinata laughing “he is the tallest of the team”
“Ohhh” said Natsu getting close to Tsukishima and pulling on his shirt
“Natsu, you want to see the world from up there” ask her big brother
The little girl nod and kept pulling on Tsukishima’s shirt
“She want you to take her” said Hinata to Tsukishima with a smile
Tsukishima look at the little orange-haired girl who was pulling on his shirt “What a bother” he though but still crouch down and took the little girl in his arm
“YAY!!!!” shout Natsu once she was in Tsukishima arms
The little girl was giggling in Kei arms, she felt tall she was seeing over her big brother head
“Natsu is taller than big brother now!” said the little girl laughing
“Yes, Natsu is taller than me” replied Hinata with a warm smile, giving a look at Tsukishima telling him he can put down his little sister now.
Once she was back on the floor the little girl ran to the kitchen bragging to her mom she was taller than her big brother. They could heard Hinata’s mom laughing at a little girl story. Tsukishima watched Natsu running away and a little smile appear on his lips, the little orange-haired girl had the same kind of energy that her big brother had
“You seems to have a good relationship with your little sister” said Tsukishima once Natsu was out of his sight
“Haha, yes” shyly said Hinata “I really like my little sister…Oh right Tsukishima you have an older brother right?”
“Let’s not talk about that loser” said Tsukishima with a sigh
The pair get to Hinata’s room and dropped their bag on the floor. Tsukishima looked around. The walls were covered by volleyball ball poster, he saw the posters made by Yachi to promote their club. Hinata noticed his teammate was looking at the first poster their manager made.
“That was a nice one” said Hinata “It’s the one I like the most, I look so cool on it” he added with a bright smile
Tsukishima was about to agree but bite his tongue instead, it was true Hinata was looking awesome on the poster, he was jumping to hit the ball, perfect pose to get the maximum power. He kept staring at the poster until he heard Hinata genuine laugh
“Are you alright Tsukishima?” asked Hinata with a smile
“Yes..Yes” quickly replied the tall number 11 trying to hide his blush hoping Hinata will not noticed it.
“If you say so” said the little decoy sitting on the floor and taking out his mathematics book
Tsukishima sit in front of his teammate and ask to look at his previous homework a dismayed look appear on his face “This is worst than I was thinking” he thought “but I said I would help him” he let out a sigh and was about to tell Hinata he will have to work hard if he want to have good grade in mathematics when Mrs Hinata called them to the dining room, the supper was ready.
The two young man enter the dining room and Tsukishima noticed the bamboo steam on the table
“Nikuman!!!” said the small number 10 running to the table
“I know you are usually eating it after the practice with our teammates, since you were finishing the practice earlier I thought I could make you some, I filled them with pork” said Mrs Hinata
“Yummmmy” replied Hinata “Come here Tsukishima!!” pulling the chair next to him
Tsukishima sat next to Hinata and Mrs Hinata remove the cover from the steamer and his son took the wooden tong to serve his friend “How many you want” he asked, Kei replied he will start with one seeing there was also fry-rice and vegetables. After the main course, Hinata’s mom took out the dessert from the fridge. It was a strawberry shortcake, soon as he saw the cake Tsukishima’s eyes widen
“Woa you made a shortcake mom?! Asked Hinata excited by the view of the strawberry and the whipped cream
“You asked me for a special dessert, therefore I made this” replied Mrs. Hinata to his son with a smile “hope your friend like that” she added looking at a Tsukishima with a warm smile.
“Yes…like…that” slowly said Tsukishima his eyes glued on the cake
Hinata and his mom looked at each other and share a smile, while Tsukishima was still looking at the cake thinking it was Yamaguchi who gave Hinata the idea.
After diner, Hinata offer his mom to help her later with the dishes, she said it was okay, Natsu had already proposed her help. The little girl was already getting on her stool beside the counter with a dishcloth in her little hand. Hinata walk over his sister pat her head and stroke her orange hair “thank you little one, big brother have to study now” he said before give a peck on his sister forehead.
The duo get back to Hinata’s room, sat on the floor and get ready to study. Few hours later, Tsukishima was ready to go, Mr Hinata propose him to drive him back, it was late and they would feel safer if he accepted the ride. Hinata told him he would come with them, Kei agreed and they all three left the house.
Once Tsukishima was back alone in his room he laid on his bed and look stare at the ceiling. Since he was back from Hinata’s house he felt kind of weird, but he wasn’t able to say what was wrong and started to get annoyed by that “Why does I have to blush each time he smile at me” he said to himself “And what about the cake…”. He took out his cell phone a send a text to his best friend. He asked him if he told Hinata that he liked Strawberry shortcake, Yamaguchi replied by the negative, thus that cake was just a coincidence, but a nice and delicious one. Karasuno middle blocker, pushed all those weird thought aside and prepare himself to get a bath and sleep wondering how would be tomorrow.
