A six year old Kazuma Kuwabara pulled himself up off of the ground, wincing in pain. Getting punched hurt a lot more than the TV said it did. He glared up at the jeering brown eyes of the boy who had knocked him down.
"Not so tough after all," mocked the smaller boy.
Kuwabara bristled and got to his feet, ignoring the pain of what would become a black eye to stare down his enemy. "You're going to regret this, Urameshi! One of these days, I'm going to make you pay!"
Yusuke Urameshi laughed at him. "I dare you to try it!"
"Idiot," Shizuru scolded him when they walked home from school later. "How could you get in a fight on your first day? Mom and Dad are not going to be happy with you."
Kuwabara raised his chin defiantly. "I had to. It was a matter of honor."
Shizuru rolled her eyes. "No more samurai movies for you. What he do to you anyways?"
"He threw a water balloon at a cat!" Kuwabara exclaimed, upset at the injustice of it all over again. "I couldn't let him get away with that!"
Shizuru's eye twitched and she hit him upside the head. "Idiot!"
Kuwabara rubbed his head as he warily followed Shizuru home. He would get Urameshi back, and not just for attacking the poor defenseless cat. Urameshi had humiliated him in front of the whole first grade class, and no self respecting samurai, no man, could take something like that lying down.
I will defeat Urameshi and get back my honor, if it's the last thing I ever do!
There was just the little matter of how exactly he'd manage to do it. Kuwabara didn't know how, but one day he would do it; he would defeat Yusuke Urameshi.
AN- This was written for Death101 Fox Version, who asked me to write something fluffy. Initially I planned for this to be a one shot only, however I have some ideas now and I will be extending this. This story will trace the growth of Yusuke and Kuwabara's rivalry turned friendship. Updates will be infrequent and random (though ideas from reviewers may speed them up, hint hint), and chapters will be no longer than 300 words.
Prompt: Something Fluffy
