Written for Mentality At Its Worst in my request a drabble post in my livejournal.

I don't own Getbackers. So you better be thanking your lucky stars, or else Juubei would be driving cars.


"Hey, Kazuki," Juubei called.

"Yeah?" Kazuki answered.

"Do you want to go to the movies or something today?"

"Sure," Kazuki said, grabbing his wallet and car keys.

"What are you doing?" Juubei asked.

"Getting my wallet so we can pay and getting the car keys so we don't have to take the subway."

"You don't have your license. I'll drive."

"You can't see," Kazuki felt inclined to remind the other man.

"I don't need to. You'll tell me where to go."

Kazuki was silent for a couple of minutes.

"I'm going to regret this," he muttered, but handed the keys to Juubei.

"The light's turning red," Kazuki said, and Juubei rolled to a perfect stop.

"I must say, I didn't actually expect you to be able to do it, but you're doing great."

"What do you mean 'I didn't think you could do it'? I'm Juubei, why wouldn't I be able to do it?"

"Nevermind. I'm sorry I doubted you," Kazuki said, resting his hand on Juubei's forearm.

"It's green."

Soon, he pulled away from Juubei. "Hey, there's Ban and Ginji," he said to Juubie, then called loudly: "Hi Ginji!"

"Hi Kazuki!" Ginji called back.

There was a loud 'thump', and Juubei stopped.

"What was that?" Juubei demanded.

"I think you just hit Ban!" Kazuki exclaimed, terrified.

"Ban-chan!" Ginji cried out.

Juubei and Kazuki were about to get out of the car, when Juubei heard Ban.

"Where is he? Where is that bastard? I'll kill him!"

"Ban-chan. Calm down," Ginji soothed.

Juubei grabbed Kazuki by the back of the shirt as Kazuki started to get out of the car, and pulled him back in.

"Juubei! What are you doing? We have to go see if he's okay."

"He's fine. Now close your door."

"But, Juu-"

"There you are, you bastard!" Ban hissed from behind them.

Kazuki's door promptly closed.

Juubei drove off quickly.

"I'll get you both!" Ban called after them.

"I won't let you hurt Kazuki! You'll never take me alive!" Juubei proceeded to laugh like a maniac as he drove off as quickly as he could.

"Juubei!" Kazuki cried. "Watch out for the tree!"

Juubei swerved violently.

"And the pedestrian!"

Juubei swerved again.

"They're coming after us!"

Juubei tried to drive quickly, but ran into something.

"What did we hit?"

Kazuki sighed. "A telephone pole."

Ban stomped heavily as he walked up to the car. "You ran over the dog we were suppose to retrieve you bastard! You owe us 10,000 yen. Pay up, you annoying bastard."

Neither Juubei nor Kazuki moved for a long time. Finally, Kazuki slumped over onto Juubei, and Juubei slumped onto the wheel, making the horn blow for a long, long time.


Con Crit more than welcome. Flames will be mocked.
