Author's Notes: 100 sentences for a hundred words about Nakatsu and Kayashima in some way. Rubber might not make as much sense to you if you haven't read all the way through the series, but it's not needed. I don't plan on spoiling anything, but read at your own risk- I might have screwed up! I might make more if people end up liking them, it was fun.
If I owned them we wouldn't be here.

52. Sneeze (Companion to 42). Nakatsu was going to complain when he was forbidden to go to practice after just a few sneezes but he decided missing a day to lie in bed and watch Kayashima do his homework was more fun; perhaps he was a bit feverish after all.

76. Misuse. "You're doing it wrong," Nakatsu repeated and once again righted the equipment in Kayashima's hands with such a caring smile the smaller boy couldn't help but be flustered.

90. Words. Nakatsu had a problem with expressing himself and he never felt he could say what he was feeling without making himself look stupid.
