I've been having this image of a certain tensai wearing nothing but a certain buchou's shirt haunting in my mind for weeks so I desided to make a fic based on that. Wonder if it's gonna stop haunting me... Wait a minute, why would I want it to stop?!
Disclaimers: A girl can dream, right..? But no, not mine.

Chapter 1: Busted
"Hoi, Oishi. You think buchou isn't home?" Eiji asked his doubles partner as he rang the doorbell for the third time. It was Sunday and he and Oishi were on their way to play tennis. Oishi had suggested they'd ask Tezuka and Fuji to join them so they could play doubles. Eiji had whined at the idea of playing against the buchou but had agreed to it. Even though Tezuka was the best player in Seigaku, it was a whole different thing to play doubles than singles. Fuji played doubles sometimes – usually with Taka-san – but Eiji couldn't remember even one time when he had seen Tezuka playing doubles. And he and Oishi were the Golden Pair!
"How can he not be home?" Eiji whined, though he knew it wasn't exactly that early anymore – and knowing their strict captain, he probably woke up early on Sundays too. "Should we call his phone to see if he's..."
The door was opened by an annoyed looking Tezuka, wearing a dark bath robe. His hair was all messy, making him look like he had just gotten out of bed. "What is it?" he asked, voice only a little colder than usual.
"Ah, gomen, Tezuka", Oishi apologised. "Were you sleeping? Did we wake you up?"
Tezuka frowned a little. "No, I wasn't sleeping... Did you have something to talk to me about?"
"Hoi, we wanted to ask if you wanted to come play tennis with us", Eiji answered. "We thought about asking Fujiko too so we could play doubles!"
"Oh, is it Eiji and Oishi?" came a familiar voice from inside the house.
"Nya? Fuji is here?" Eiji asked and peeked over Tezuka's shoulder to see his best friend.
Fuji was walking down the stairs, wearing nothing but a shirt – it was long enough to reach his knees so it clearly belonged to Tezuka.
Eiji blinked couple times, watching his smiling friend. Then he looked at the very disturbed looking Tezuka, then back to Fuji, Tezuka... His eyes opened wide as his brain finally added all things together: Tezuka wearing only a robe, Tezuka looking like he just got out of bed but wasn't sleeping, Fuji wearing Tezuka's shirt...
The redhead glanced quickly at his doubles partner who – judging by the redness of his face – had come to the same conclusion as Eiji, and turned back to the other two. Eiji opened his mouth but whatever it had been he wanted to say was muffled by Oishi's hand.
"We're really sorry we interrupted your... I mean disturbed you!" Oishi stuttered, his face burning up. "We'll go now. So sorry we bothered." Oishi quicky walked out of there, dragging Eiji with him.
Tezuka sighed and close the door. "You did that on purpose", he accused.
"Did what on purpose?" Fuji chuckled. "I didn't know it was Eiji and Oishi."
"It would have been even worse if it had been someone else."
"I highly doupt that. Seeing that Eiji really isn't one to keep his mouth shut I think it's quite reasonable to assume that before the beginning of the tennis practise tomorrow morning everyone in the tennis club has heard about this. And as for the rest of the school... Shouldn't take much more than a day after that."
Tezuka sighed again and sat down on the living room couch. "I thought we argeed not to tell people about us."
"Which one of us said anything?" Fuji asked while sitting on Tezuka's lap. He gave a little peck on the taller boy's chin. "Not telling and keeping it a secret aren't exactly the same thing so if they found out about it on their own... Are you angry?"
Tezuka shook his head and wrapped his arms around the lithe boy, pulling him closer, and kissed him gently on the lips. Fuji made a purring sound and nuzzled against Tezuka's chest. "But I do think tomorrow's practise might be... interesting."
"I don't want to think about that right now..." Tezuka murmured, kissing Fuji's neck, receiving some more of those delightful purring sounds from the tensai.
"Oh, and what would you like to do now?" Fuji asked seductively, azure blue eyes opening.
"I think... we could continue from where we were until we got interrupted."
Fuji gave a surprised yelp when Tezuka pushed him down on the couch on his back. "Someone is being horny", the smaller brunet chuckled. Tezuka answered by locking their lips together for a very long kiss.
"Why did you have to choose this shirt?" Tezuka asked frustated, breaking the kiss. Opening the (several) small buttons on the light blue shirt while remaining liplocked seemed to be an impossible task.
Fuji gave a wicked smile to his boyfriend. "I just thought I should demonstrate to you how annoying it is when you always wear shirts like this. They don't come off nearly quick enough."
Eiji was sure he would explode soon. This was huge! He had to tell someone about this. Well, there was Oishi but he already knew since he had seen exactly the same he had. And when Eiji tried to talk to Oishi about it, he just turned all red and said it wasn't something they should be talking about and stuff like that. Mou, Oishi was being boring!
So Eiji just had to talk to someone about this! Maybe he could call Inui... But then Inui would just start counting the possibility of this happening and write in his notebook. Taka-san would probably act pretty much the same way as Oishi – or would be even more troubled by it – at least if he wasn't holding his racket at the moment. And if he was, then Eiji couldn't even get the chance to say anything because Taka-san in burning mode was very loud. Ooo, Fuji was so gonna get it tomorrow! How could he not tell his best friend that Tezuka was not playing him just on but off the courts too. Eiji grinned widely to his choise of words. Oh, he had to say that to someone.
"Aren't those Momo and Echizen?" Oishi asked noticing the two Seigaku regulars sitting by a window in the McDonald's across the street. "We could ask them to play doubles with us."
That would have been an excellent attempt to try to get Eiji's mind out of the subject that was very uncomfortable to Oishi exept that by pointing the junior and freshman to Eiji, Oishi just solved his problem of to whom he could tell about this.
"Come Oishi! We have to let Momo and Ochibi know about this too!"
"Ah, Eiji! No, you can't tell them about..." He ran after Eiji who was already at the door.
"Momo! Ochibi! You'll never believe what Oishi and I just saw..."
The younger regulars stared at their senpais who had just barged in. "Kikumaru-senpai... and Oishi-senpai?" Ryoma asked puzzled by his senpais sudden appearance – Momoshiro had just been stuffing a gigantig hamburger down his throat so he was unable to speak at the moment. "What are you two doing here?"
Now it was Eiji's turn to shut Oishi up and he put his hand over his doubles partner's mouth to prevent him from interfering with his revelations. "Fuji and Tezuka are doing XXX things together", Eiji stated and made a big X sign with his arms in front of his face.
Echizen and Momoshiro looked confused.
"Anõ, Eiji-senpai", Momoshiro scratched the back of his head with his free hand, "what does that mean? Doing XXX things that is."
Eiji's jaw dropped. Sure, he had kinda expected that Echizen might not know, being the kawaii freshman Ochibi-chan he was, but for Momo not to know! Even Eiji knew that much and he was considered childish. "Nya, they're sleeping together!" Eiji said it with loud enough voice to get the attention of most of the people inside. Oishi's face was the color of Eiji's hair as he pulled the redhead to sit with him on the opposite side of the table Momoshiro and Ryoma were sitting by and silently begged Eiji to drop this topic already. The sex life of their best friends was most likely the last thing he wanted to talk about. And he certainly didn't want the rest of the world to know about it either. It was Fuji and Tezuka's business alone.
At least now Momo got it, Kikumaru noted as the spiky-haired boy blushed furiously and almost choked on his burger.
Ryoma, on the other hand, still looked indifferent. So Fuji-senpai had been sleeping over at buchou's place or the other way around. (In Ryoma's young mind sleeping over and sleeping together had no real difference.)
"What's the big deal?" Ryoma asked his redhaired senpai. "So what if they're sleeping over?"
Eiji sweatdropped. Didn't Echizen grow up in America, not in a box? The obnoxious kid couldn't possibly be this innocent. Right? "Sleeping over isn't the same thing as sleeping together..."
Ryoma blinked couple times. "Then what's th..." Ryoma paused as he saw Momoshiro gesturing him to move closer. The boy leaned towards his senpai and the taller boy put his hands near Echizen's ear and started whispering something. After a short moment Ryoma's eyes grew very wide and his grip on the soda in his hand loosened. Luckily Eiji, having the best reflexes in Seigaku, caught it before it would have spilled it's contents all over the table.
"But... how do you know they..." Ryoma actually blushed and was unable to finish his question.
"Yeah, you didn't actually see them... doing... it?" Momoshiro stuttered. Eiji saw in the corner of his eye that Oishi looked like he wanted to sink under the table.
"Nya, we didn't see anything like that", Eiji said, happy that he could finally tell his story. "Oishi and I were gonna go ask Fuji and Tezuka to come play doubles with us. We went to ask Tezuka first – we didn't know that Fuji was already there too – and he didn't come to open the door at all first. And when he finally came he looked like he had just got out of bed except that he hadn't been sleeping and he was wearing only a bath robe and then we saw Fuji coming down the stairs..."
"So he was just sleeping over after all", Momoshiro gave a relieved laughter. Man, Eiji-senpai really had him there for a sec...
"I didn't finish yet!" Eiji pouted. He didn't like to be interrupted when telling a story. A mischievous grin appeared on his face. "So we saw Fuji coming down the stairs and he was wearing nothing but a shirt! And it was Tezuka's shirt! And why would Fujiko be wearing buchou's shirt and being nak..."
Not only Oishi but Momoshiro and Echizen's hands went to shut Kikumaru down as his voice was getting louder again. Man, were all the regulars as overly virtuous as Oishi..?
"This is truly interesting data..."
All four of them nearly fell down from their chairs as they heard the familiar voice.
"Inui?" Eiji confirmed, looking up to the tall boy with glasses. He was holding his prestigious notebook in one hand and the other was firmly holding onto Kaidoh's arm, preventing him from escaping. Judging by the redness of his face, the junior regular had also heard what Eiji had been telling about Fuji and their captain and didn't want to hear anything more.
Inui just smirked and opened his notebook. "Please, do tell more about this."

I was originally planning on doing this a one-shot but I've been having some ideas of what could happen next... other pairs, other schools, jealousy... What do you think? I don't mean to sound like those people who say 'I won't write more unless I get this and this many reviews' (I'm really not like that, I swear) but how else would I know whether anyone likes this or not... But well, I think I'm gonna continue anyway, though... Just have to write the ideas down first...
