Summary: 26 short drabbles, one for each letter of the alphabet, about Hiro and Ando's friendship and eventual romance. Hiro/Ando. Slash.
Author's Note: Yeah, I'll admit it. This was always part of the plan. I've written ABC drabbles for Pylar (Exception) and MoMatt (Threads), and I finally got around to doing my Hando one. Drabbles will be short.
It was the apple that started it all. It had to be an apple. It was one of the most reknown fruits in history. Apples has appeared in biblical, fictional, and even scientific story. It always took center stage. It was typical that it was that it was the red fruit that clobber young Hiro in the back of the head.
Hiro, of course, didn't think of any of those things. He barely had a chance to pick himself up before a boy had ran up to him, apologizing quickly, much less contemplate how the scarlet object had effected the world. Then Hiro was watching as the boy, who was not much older or taller than him, bow bowed before him, telling him how the apple had slipped from his hand.
The tale consisted of heroic deeds and villainous schemes, for neither of them had reached double digits. By time Hiro thought of the apple again, it was hours later and a new friendship had been born. He dismissed it as quickly as it came back.
It took him ten more years and hundreds of apples later to realize what the fruit had. Hiro looked at the round ruby, possibly the cousin of the one who had hit him so many years before and smiled. Passing it to his best friend, he grinned.
