Hey all!
I'm planning to make this a series of short one-shots focusing on Yuu and Tsubasa living together. Because, in my headcanon, Yuu moved in with Tsubasa 'cause he had nowhere else to go…and because, let's face it, it makes for adorable interaction and stuff. xD

But yeah.
There was a prequel that set the stage for these stories, but…I didn't like the way it turned out. Basically all you need to know is that here Tsubasa and Yuu are sharing an apartment and the WBBA has appointed Tsubasa as Yuu's guardian for the time being.

…Obviously this happened before the whole Metal Masters incident.

Basically: each one-shot is unrelated to the one before it and so on, though they all essentially deal with Tsu and Yuu sharing an apartment.

Disclaimer: I don't own Beyblade Metal Fusion or its characters.

A Brat

"Hey, Tsubasa?" Yuu plodded over to their small dining table and sat down next to the older teen.

"Yeah?" Tsubasa answered, looking up from polishing Eagle.

"Am I a brat?"

Tsubasa nearly dropped his precious bey hearing that. "Uh, well…"

"Geez, Tsubasa! You can tell me the truth you know!"

The golden-eyed teen sighed. "Yes, you are a bit of a brat," he answered flatly.

"Girls don't like brats, do they?" Yuu demanded more than asked.


"Well, today, at Beypark, this annoying girl told me that she'd never date me because I'm a brat! Can you believe it?"

Tsubasa was a bit lost for words at first. "Date you? Aren't you a little young?"

"I know that, silly! I just think it might be a problem in the future! I mean, I don't want to end up dateless like you!"

Tsubasa just stared – his surprise dulling the bruised pride he was now suffering from.

Yuu tilted his head and squinted. "Although, it could be because of your hair. Meaning I have nothing to worry about after all!" Yuu hopped off the chair and trotted off towards his room.

Tsubasa frowned, reaching behind him to grab his ponytail and inspect it.

"What's wrong with my hair?"

Poor Tsubasa. No one likes his hair for some reason. Masamune also made a comment on it once. *shakes head* I don't get it, Tsubasa is perfectly fashionable!

Oh, and as always, please let me know how I'm doing with characterization, or any other problems you might notice.

So, reviews if you would be so kind? 83
If you liked it, let me know, and I'll update soon!
