Title: The Art of Letting Go

Pairing: onesided8627, implied27Ky

A/N: sometime after the Future Arc. I love Haru so much, and that makes me feel really bad about writing this.


"That's it!"

Haru's exclaimation was met with silence as the only other inhabitant of the room turned to watch the brunette jump to her feet with a determined expression.

"What's it?" Kyoko finally asked of her friend, who turned to her with a beaming smile that didn't quite reach her eyes.

"I give up," Haru stated in a clear, unwavering tone. "He's yours."

Kyoko tilted her head in confusion. "Who is?"

Haru smiled, more truly this time. "Nevermind. Just know that I won't stand in your way anymore."

"Oh..." Kyoko returned her smile hesitantly. "Okay?"

"Atta girl!" Haru squealed, pumping her fist into the air. "Go for it!"

Kyoko raised her fist weakly, wondering what her friend was talking about.

"And now," Haru decalred. "I'll be right back."

Kyoko watched the other girl leave and wondered if the odd glistening in Haru's eyes had been tears.
