Please note that I know absolutely nothing about the J-league.

**********

Aya slowly unwrapped Ken's present. As he saw what it was (while Omi still couldn't, a circumstance that annoyed him quite a bit) he looked at Ken.

There was no anger or hurt in his gaze ; he was just staring at Ken. And Ken started to blush furiously, turning his head away and mumbling something that might have been an apology.

After a while, Omi was no longer able to contain his curiosity. "What did Ken-kun gave you, Aya-kun? It's not another date-coupon, is it?"

Ken's blush deepened, as Aya slowly shook his head. "No, it isn't. These, " he held up two pieces of paper, " are two tickets for the J-league finals tomorrow."

Omi felt his jaw drop. It seemed absolutely no one had even tried to find a suitable gift for Aya ; they had just presented him with things they would like for themselves.

: Well, I can't deny I wouldn't mind an evening of having him to myself to try and find out what's behind that icy exterior. But Farfarello put quite some thinking in his gift, I assure you. And Aya does have a collection of J-league stuff under his bed. : Schuldich informed him.

Omi scowled. He had thought it would be a good idea to hide those things under Aya's bed since it was very unlikely Ken would ever find them there ; he had collected them for the brunet's birthday. Only now Ken had already seen them!

: Try hiding them in Nagi's room next time ; that should keep them hidden from nosy kittens. You come there often enough ; I'm surprised you didn't think of it yourself. :

Schuldich smirked as Omi felt his cheeks grow hot at the mental images accompanying the telepath's statement about his frequent visits to Nagi's room, which he had thought to be a secret kept from the rest of Schwarz.

: Oh, Nagi didn't say anything. It's just that in a house with a precog and a telepath no one is able to have much privacy, let alone hide anything from the others for more than a few days at most. :

Omi shivered, resolving to be extra nice to Nagi (and plan more of their meetings in *his* room rather than Nagi's). The thought of Schwarz actually *knowing* in full detail what they did on their dates was ... rather uncomfortable.

"Ah, Crawford-san, would you like to give your present now?" he asked, shoving the thought off him and returning to the matter at hand.

The leader of Schwarz shook his head. "I will give him my gift later."

Schuldich started to laugh, stopping abruptly as both Aya and Crawford sent a death-glare in his direction before Omi could even start to wonder what was so funny.

"Nagi-kun?" he asked. The young telekinetic nodded, presenting Aya with two packages.

"These are from Omi and me." Nagi said in his usual soft voice. "We spent a lot of time looking for them so we hope they are to your liking."

Omi nodded at Nagi's words and watched in tension. To find these two books -one on the arranging of flowers and one on the art of sword-fighting- Nagi and he had filtered through what seemed like half the Internet.

: It might have taken a lot less time if you could have kept from being ... distracted all the time when the two of you were in the same room, you know. :

Omi stuck out his tongue (mentally only ; Nagi had taught him how to do that) and replied sweetly : Maybe you should get a love-life of your own, Schuldich, rather than picking and spying on mine.

Schuldich 'humph'ed but didn't respond in any other way.

[that evening, Schwarz residence]

Schuldich walked into the livingroom, a confused look on his face. "Crawford? Do you know where the chibi is? He's not in his room."

"Neither is Farfarello." Crawford informed him, not looking up from the book he was reading.

"Why - " Schuldich started to ask, as he was interrupted by the doorbell.

"It's for you." Crawford stated. "Have fun and don't get into trouble."

"Who - "

"You'll see."

Deciding Crawford wasn't in a talkative mood today (as usual), Schuldich walked to the door, opening it to reveal a rather smug looking Yohji Kudoh, dressed to kill in a non-literal sense.

"Well, well, what do we have here?" Schuldich drawled. Though he knew from Omi Yohji was not exactly hard to get, he hadn't thought the other man was really interested in dating him.

Opposites attracted after all, and he and Yohji were definitely not that.

Yohji flashed him a grin. "Aya was kind enough to give me your date-coupon, claiming he had no use for it himself."

"How generous of him." Schuldich replied, wondering if Yohji really was too dense to see the real reason for his teammate's unwillingness to date either him or Schuldich.

Yohji nodded. "So, you're coming?"

"Sure, why not?"

Perhaps, if things worked out well tonight, he wouldn;t even have to use the coupon Aya had given him, the one for a date with Yohji. Schuldich smiled as he hopped into the car next to Yohji. Things were definitely looking up again.

[Weiss apartment, downstairs]

"Did you see that? Did you see that?"

"See what?"

"He scored! He made a goal!"

"So? Why should you get so excited over that? I don't understand."

"But ... but ... "

"This is boring to watch."

"Hey! You're talking about one of the best soccer-matches ever!"

"Says who?"

"Says me!"

"You're just Ken Hidaka."

"Yeah, well, you're just insane. How can you *not* see the beauty of that shot?!?"

Farfarello sighed. The things he put up with for love's sake! Tomorrow he would even visit a place full of crazy people who would probably yell and scream all the time, just because some idiot kicked a ball to another idiot. At least *he* had a good reason when he made noise.

"I'm distracted by the beauty of the person sitting next to me." he replied with a grin, that slowly widened as Ken's cheeks turned a bright red.

[Weiss apartment, upstairs]

"Oooh, look here Nagi. This is a good one!"

"Hmmm?"

"Listen up : 'Nagi gets kidnapped by some crazy scientists. As Schwarz is helpless to do anything, they have to call on Weiss for assistance. Will Omi be in time to save his lover?' Sounds pretty cool eh?"

"Sounds pretty dumb, actually. Why the heck would Schwarz be unable to do anything by themselves? And how would anyone be able to kidnap *me*?"

Omi pouted.

Nagi grinned. "Now here's one that sounds really good : 'Omi and Nagi go on a camping-trip with their school and end up sharing a tent. Then - "

[Schwarz apartment]

"How do you always plan these things?"

A shrug. "It's a Gift."

A chuckle. "The best one I ever got for my birthday."

"Thank you. I do my best."

"It shows."

"I love you."

"I love you too."

"Want some ice-cream for desert?"

"Hmmm, that sounds nice. Can we take it upstairs?"

"Of course. Anything to make you remember tonight for the rest of your life."

Aya raised one eyebrow. "Anything?"

Crawford nodded solemnly, blushing slightly at the visions of what might happen that night.

Aya smiled.

Author's note : 1) Yes, I know the ending resembles that of 'April fools' in some ways. I would like to think though the resemblance wasn't big enough to bother anyone. 2) The fanfic-summaries read by Omi and Nagi are completely made up ; do not take offense if they resemble yours in some way, please.
