One-shot giftfic (I seem to be doing these a lot, lately) for IssaLee for correctly guessing why I wrote "Forever". Sorry, no Hayate in this. You have no idea how hard writing "Forever" was, it took me so long! My muse would know, she was behind me while I wrote it. Or—beside me. Perpendicular to my position... Whatever! She was around me somewhere!
Anyway, this is for IssaLee. All Genma goodness.


Misunderstanding.

"Okay, Genma." Namiashi Raidou sighed as he rubbed his eyes with the thumb and forefinger of his right hand. "What did you do this time?"

"Why do you always assume I'm at fault?.!" Shiranui Genma demanded, frowning.

"Because you always are. What happened?"

"Okay, before you get mad—hear me out, will you?" Genma coughed nervously.

"Fine. Hurry up."

"Okay. Okay." Genma took a deep breath to calm himself down. "Okay, so I was walking down the street, you know, minding my own business—"

"And by that, you mean you were hitting on everything with two legs and a dick." Raidou interrupted.

"Do you want me to tell you, or not?.!" Genma asked angrily. Raidou rolled his eyes, sighing.

"Keep going."

"Like I was saying, I was walking down the street, minding my own business." He stressed the last four words. Raidou pretended not to notice. "And I bumped into some asshole who was talking bad about my boyfriend! In case it's not clear, that's you."

"It's clear." Raidou stated, annoyed. "Go on."

"So, I decided to stop this guy and have a chat with him."

"Naturally."

"Raidou." Genma whined.

"Keep talking, Shiranui." Raidou snapped. He was losing his patience.

"All right!" Genma snapped back. "Fine. So, I stopped to have a chat with him, and find out why he was bad-mouthing you. He was just talking about how you were an idiot and how you couldn't have brain in that cute little head of yours." Raidou cocked an eyebrow. "You've got a brain, Raidou! It's as sexy as the rest of you!"

"Sure it is."

"You're not being very nice today." Genma pouted.

"I'm not in the mood." Genma just sighed and kept going.

"So, I talked to him for a bit, you know, trying to find out why you were such a moron in his eyes."

You mean you yelled at him until your face turned blue, Raidou thought. He didn't feel like having Genma whine again, so he thought against speaking this aloud.

"And then, I found out why they thought you were stupid."

"And why was that?" Raidou asked as he leaned back on the couch.

"Because you're dating me!" Raidou couldn't help it. He burst into a fit of laughter, hardly able to breathe he was laughing so hard. "It's not funny!"

"No, it's not. It's hilarious!" Raidou continued to laugh.

"Raidou, it's not funny, dammit!" Genma exclaimed. "It's hurtful! I was hurt! Not only did he call you stupid, he called you stupid for dating me! Do you know how much that hurt me? I was so hurt, it took me a full five minutes to realize I had to act on this!"

"Five minutes?" Raidou asked doubtfully.

"Okay, maybe just one, but that's not the point! I was in a state of shock! Shock, Raidou!"

"So, you decided to do something that would make it impossible for me to get laid for about a month or so?" Raidou asked.

"That wasn't really part of the plan." Genma rubbed the back of his head, wincing.

"Of course not. You never do think before you act." Raidou sighed as he closed his eyes. "So, what did you do?"

"I threw him through a store window." Genma replied, somewhat proudly.

"That's it?"

"No." Genma laughed sheepishly, rubbing the back of his neck. "I, uh—I also kind of kicked the crap out of him." Genma sighed, shaking his head. "And that, Raidou, is why I got arrested!" He insisted into the phone, a police officer standing behind him. "Help me."
