AUTHOR'S NOTES: See, I told you I'd have another sleepless night. I feel guilty not writing something Vit. C enriched for this year's RuSen day. But this is better than NOTHING.

Happy RuSen Day, JUMBO!

DISCLAIMER: Yes, I am well aware that Slam Dunk is not mine.


CONVERSATIONS: The Others
by Kumagoro Meowzaki

"Don't you get jealous with Sakuragi?"

"I don't have reason to."

"Even when I talk to him or look at him?"

"You don't screw him or anything, do you?"

"No."

"Then why would I be jealous?"

"I don't know, because normal couples do?"

"Are you trying to break up?"

"Hell, NO! Are you?"

"No."

"Whew."

"..."

"Hey, Rukawa. If you weren't with me, who would you be with?"

"..."

"Just curious, I wouldn't kill him or her."

"Nobody."

"Really? No runners-up?"

"..."

"Akagi Haruko?"

"Sakuragi's the one who has the hots for her."

"But she has the hots for you?"

"So?"

"Well, I don't know. Do you like her?"

"No."

"Who then?"

"You're annoying."

"Just answer."

"Fine. Maybe Mitsui."

"Maybe?"

"You made the move."

"But if he did?"

"Maybe."

"Maybe?"

"He's cool."

"Yeah..."

"You're not thinking of a threesome with him aren't you?"

"Tempting."

"Do'ahou."

"Well, at least if we breakup, you'd have a replacement."

"I won't break up with you."

"Even if it meant giving up basketball?"

"No."

"Even if your parents disowned you?"

"No."

"..."

"..."

"Hey, Rukawa."

"..."

"Aishiteru."

"Shut up."
