Invisible Item II
"Midorima-kun..." Kuroko mumbled, being dragged along side with the green haired boy.
He ignored him, his face was still flushed from earlier.
"Midorima-kun." Kuroko stopped moving his feet, coming to a halt. The silent boy stopped too, but didn't face Kuroko. Once Kuroko noticed that Midorima was listening to him, all though he wasn't looking at him, he started to speak.
"Why are you-" Midorima cut him off.
"Because, your my Lucky Item for today... For the rest of today." Midorima muttered, looking towards the direction of the sun which was gradually starting to set.
Kuroko followed his gaze and looked back at Midorima, silently wondering why so suddenly. He sighed inwardly, and decided to play along with what ever was happening.
Midorima let go of Kuroko's hand, and turned around a corner.
Kuroko blinked, and looked at his hand which hurt a little bit, due to when Midorima had clenched it so hard. He flexed his fingers and looked back up to Midorima.
"Where are we going?" He asked quietly.
"The court." Midorima replied back, equally as quiet.
The two walked in silence, but both minds were thinking intently. Wondering why they were doing this or why they even complied...
Kuroko glanced up and noticed that they were indeed close to the park, where there was a basketball court. Despite getting 'kidnapped', Kuroko felt oddly happy that he was going to get to play with Midorima again. He followed him with a hint of a smile painted on his pale face.
When they reached the courts, they saw that there were a few teenagers playing there, having fun.
Midorima and Kuroko walked up, but the teens only noticed Midorima.
"Ne, could we play?" He asked, almost in a small demanding tone.
"We?" One of the boys questioned, and yelped as Kuroko innocently greeted him. "S- sure!" He stuttered, standing back up, getting out of his shock.
"Ah, since we have four, we'll give you someone from our team and then it'd be three on three." The guy smiled.
"I'll go." A different guy said, walking over with a friendly smile.
"Hn." Midorima made a small noise in the back of his throat, but no one else heard him.
"Tip off!" Another boy yelled, acting as a referee for the game.
During the game, Kuroko managed to steal the ball from one of the players, and he looked around, and noticed that Midorima was being guarded rather well, so he turned to the other player they got, and changed the direction of the ball to the guy.
"Eh?" The guy blinked and yelped as they ball crashed into his face, making him fall backwards to the ground.
"Ow!" He exclaimed, holding his now bleeding nose.
"I'm really sorry..." Kuroko mumbled, at a loss for words as he kneeled beside the fallen guy.
This had never happened before, so he didn't know how to react.
"I- It's okay..." He chuckled awkwardly, rubbing his nose. "It's not broken." He smiled.
Kuroko blinked and stared at him, 'How could he say it's okay, even though I hurt him and made him bleed?...' His thoughts died out as Midorima walked over.
"It's getting late, maybe we should go." He muttered, staring blankly. In reality, he didn't really care about the guy that just got hurt, but what he didn't understand was what happened with Kuroko...
'I've never seen that happen...' Midorima thought, and tugged on Kuroko's shirt and led them both out of the courts.
Midorima glanced down at Kuroko, and twitched when he saw that he was intently staring at the ground, looking like he was about to start crying.
"W- what?" He stuttered briefly, turning away to glare at the grass they walked on.
"..." Kuroko was silent as they walked, thinking.
Midorima sighed and started at the sky which had turned from blue to pink, purple, and orange, as the sun slowly went down. He stared at the stars that started to make their appearance and shine in the darkening sky.
He glanced back at Kuroko, but was taken aback when he saw that the shorter boy was staring up at him.
"...?" He questioned him through silence, but Kuroko didn't reply, he just continued to stare up at him.
"What, Kuroko?" Midorima twitched, not liking the gaze that fell on him.
"... Nothing, I'm just happy that I got to play with Midorima-kun, even though it was for a little while." Kuroko replied, turning to hide his growing smile and slight flush of his cheeks.
Midorima frowned and also looked away, feeling his own cheeks heat up a little. "Tch, it was nothing special. We didn't even get to use ou-" Midorima started.
"It doesn't matter, it was still fun." Kuroko interruped Midorima casually, smiling up at him.
"Hmm." Midorima glanced at the smaller boy, and turned around again, hiding his red face.
"MIDORIMACCHI!" Midorima's eyes widened as he was tackled to the ground by a big annoyed force. He glared, and realized that it was Kise, who was sitting beside him with a huge smile on his face.
"Aww!" He gushed, looking at the scene that lay before the model.
Midorima paused, feeling a weight on him, and looked to see Kuroko laying on top of him, dazed as to what had just happened.
"Ah..." Midorima blushed, remembering. He had still been holding onto Kuroko's sleeve as he was tackled so rudely to the ground by Kise.
Kuroko sat up and rolled off of him, allowing him to fumble with his glasses as they slipped off his nose.
"Kise-kun?" Kuroko blinked, staring at the model who was grinning ear to ear.
"My plan worked!" Kise shouted, raising his fists in the air victoriously.
"What plan!?" Midorima felt yet another vein pop, as he glared daggers towards Kise.
Kise laughed, and wiped at his eyes. "The one I made to make the two of you closer!" He giggled at the face that Midorima made, which was one of shock and anger.
Kuroko's face still remained the same, although his eyes had widened a bit.
"You see, I had the girl who reads out the horoscopes for today and the lucky item, and I got her to say Invisible Item! It was hilarious!" Kise doubled over, thinking that was his most brilliant plan.
"So... my lucky item for today wasn't something Invisible..." Midorima's aura darkened, as he felt his fingers twitching.
"No! It was soap or something!" Kise burst out into another fit of giggles. "All just to make you two become closer!" He grinned, winking at the two of them.
"KISE!" Midorima shouted, his voice echoing in the park.
