โ€œkuroo, i donโ€™t feel comfortable doing this.โ€ i mumbled and looked back down at the current book i was reading.

โ€œcome on, (n/n). itโ€™ll be funnn!โ€

i sighed and placed my bookmark on page 146, and closed it. i didnโ€™t have the time nor guts to do this.

โ€œkuroo, you said that last time. and last time i got clumsy and fell, multiple times if i may add.โ€ i quietly told him, looking up.

we were in the library at school, he knows this is how i spend my lunch. but continues to bother me endlessly.

โ€œi promise this one will be different, i know kenma better than the other dude.โ€ he pleaded at me, he has been trying to set me up with people.

who even knows why.

i sighed once again and lightly put a lock of my hair behind my ear.

โ€œfine Kuroo. but if this one goes wrong, i will not speak to you for a week and you cannot set me up with another person.โ€ i spoke firmly at him, making my point known.

his eyes lit up at me and squashed me into a bone crushing hug.

โ€œthank you, thank you, thank youu!!โ€ he shouted, very loudly, after letting me go.

โ€œcalm down, youโ€™re going to get us kicked out of here.โ€

kuroo and i have been friends since day one. however, i didnโ€™t exactly like how much of an extrovert he can be.

we grew up together and in most situations iโ€™d stay inside. so iโ€™ve never been a fan of being outdoors. especially when itโ€™s a sunny day, iโ€™d even go to the length and say i hate sunny days.

โ€œwhy are you like this..โ€ i grumbled quietly and picked my bag up.

โ€œalright, since iโ€™ve been planning this for a while. which means itโ€™s going to rain Saturday. you and Kenma are going to be staying at your place. iโ€™ve been waiting for my best friends to meet for so long!โ€

i rolled my eyes and headed out of the library, seeing as i had to get back to class.

even if Kuroo is a 3rd year, we still hang out together. correction, he still pesters me to hang out with him.

i could have used all that time for catching up on books and sometimes on special occasions, dive into some fanfiction.

โ€œiโ€™ll see you later (n/n)!โ€ he winked and headed the other way.

heading to class i took my seat, which was far from the front. which i was glad about, it could give me the opportunity to read while the teacher couldnโ€™t see me.

my desk mate, whose name iโ€™m not sure about, came and did his routine.

he also took advantage of being in the back but he used it on video games. iโ€™m not sure why, but i guess we have different hobbies.

to be honest, i didnโ€™t even know his name. He was so quiet but so am i.

occasionally iโ€™d look up at the board to see if there was anything i actually needed to write down or listen to.

when the last bell rang, signaling the end of the school day. i grabbed my bag and slung it over my shoulder, continuing my book.

iโ€™d never stay and watch Kuroo practice volleyball. i didnโ€™t see a point in it, i mean, i know heโ€™s good at it.

i passed and heard squeaking sounds of their shoes and some harsh noises of balls being spiked.

โ€œkenma! set me another one!โ€ i heard an unusual voice speak up really loud.

however it wasnโ€™t the voice that attracted my attention, it was the name.

kenma?

โ€œno, thatโ€™s your fifth one.โ€ i heard an annoyed voice from the gym.

u had the urge to go take a peek but then stopped myself.

why should I?

i have better things to be doing, like tidying up my room a bit and catching up on my weekend book.

switching books occasionally wasnโ€™t a problem because my parents would always buy me more.

even if i could go down to the public library and ask for some.

which meant that i have a huge bookcase filled with my favorite books in my room.

i glared up at the sunny sky, it made me a bit pissed. i donโ€™t understand how someone could like sunny days over rainy ones.

after getting my house key from my pocket i unlocked my door. my parents did work at the same office but would always get off late at night.

with that said, i set my school bag down and started cleaning. i did a bit more than what i usually do since i didnโ€™t feel like doing it tomorrow.

when i got finished i headed downstairs after tying my (h/c) hair up into a low bun and tied my apron on me.

just because my parents are gone doesnโ€™t mean that i can order pizza every night.

i got started on an easy dinner, seeing as i wanted to get it over with.

i have to waste a perfectly rainy day on someone who probably wants to go out or something.

why not just stay in the comfort of your bed and slob around in snacks and books?

finished cleaning the dishes i headed upstairs and started on my night routine. i grabbed an oversized grey shirt which said โ€˜do i care?โ€™ and some black shorts.

knowing myself, thatโ€™d also be the outfit iโ€™d wear when kenma comes over tomorrow.

there wasnโ€™t anything weird i heard about Kenma from anyone.

i mean, i guess he got a some confessions but he didnโ€™t waste his time on love.

i couldnโ€™t blame him, why waste your time on falling in love, which only ends in heartbreak by the way, when you can fall in love with fictional characters whoโ€™d never break your heart.

with those thoughts running through my mind i set my book on my nightstand and turned off my lamp.

now itโ€™s time for fanfiction, a small smile made itโ€™s way onto my face as i opened wattpad.

iโ€™d always love reading these, especially when they were about my favorite character.

little did i know that i stayed up a tad bit too late and before i knew it, it was 7:03am.

i mentally cursed at myself for doing this yet again. it was like some kind of drug to read there.

i furrowed my brows and sat up, shouldnโ€™t my parents have come in?

pushing back my covers i grabbed a large red hoodie and some fuzzy socks. i headed to their room, surprisingly, it was empty.

i started getting worried and wondered if they had gotten in a crash or decided not to deal with me anymore.

however those thoughts were the usual ones iโ€™d always get whenever theyโ€™d not come home.

i rushed to my phone and checked my messages, i didnโ€™t really like getting notifications so i blocked every single one of them.

messages from my mom and dad, stating that they had an emergency business trip to take.

i texted them back and sighed, they always do this.

iโ€™m never mad or anything, i just wish we could have quality family time.

but the again, i hate everyone because they get on my nerves.

i headed downstairs and started making a cup of vanilla tea. i smiled and peeked outside to see the rain coming down a bit harsh.

one of the reasons i love having a tin roof is that you can hear the sounds clearer.

when i was just about to sip my tea, the doorbell rang.

i was confused. whoโ€™d be visiting me?

racking my brain for an answer i opened it expecting Kuroo.

Running a hand through my hair, โ€œkuroo, itโ€™s saturday, go home.โ€ i looked up to see not Kuroo, but my desk mate.

i stiffened and went into extra introvert mode. i looked at my fuzzy socks and quietly said, โ€œuhm, you must be k-kenma.โ€

he nodded and looked all over my face and outfit.

till i realized that it was still raining and he was bound to get soaked by the gutters if i didnโ€™t let him in.

i motioned for him to come him and he mumbled a quiet โ€œthank you.โ€

he took off his shoes and i headed back to the kitchen then went up the stairs. i knew heโ€™d follow me, i mean, where else is he gonna go.

i sat in my bed and grabbed my book, my phone still in my hoodie pocket.

โ€œmake yourself a home.โ€

i crossed my legs and opened my book as he sat on the edge of my bed.

after reading for a few minutes I looked up and he had playing on a switch.

that went on for hours.

kenma had moved on my bed more and crisscrossed his legs, still playing his game.

and I had leaned to were half of my body was hanging off the edge. i was hanging upside down and reading my book.

the rain hadnโ€™t stopped which i was grateful for. i could tell that kenma was getting hungry too. i sat up and walked out with a feeling of his eyes watching me.

when i returned i gave him some snacks and drinks. then we resumed what we were doing.

i guess kenma had gotten comfortable with me because my legs were in his lap as he had his eyes glued to the screen.

suddenly my doorbell rang, which made me jump. i saw Kenma glance at me because of it.

i sluggishly got up and headed to the door. when opening it i was faced with a bed headed cat.

โ€œwhat do you want kuroo?โ€ i asked quietly to him as he ignored my question and let himself in.

โ€œoya, so how are you two love birds doing? hitting it off well?โ€ he loudly spoke which made me wince.

kuroo headed up to my room and kenma was there snacking on some chips.

โ€œweโ€™re not lovebirds kuroo.โ€ kenma spoke up as my ears perked up at hearing his voice.

โ€œwhat are you doing here?โ€ i repeated my question and got myself comfortable with kenma again.

he watched us and blinked a few times before yelling.

โ€œYOU TWO ARE DATING ARENโ€™T YOU?โ€

i gave him a โ€˜youโ€™re a dumbassโ€™ look and glanced at kenma.

โ€œno kuroo, we arenโ€™t dating. even if we were, i donโ€™t think weโ€™d tell you.โ€ i said calmly picking my book up.

i saw Kenma nod, agreeing with me.

โ€œwait, what exactly have you and kenma been doing?โ€

โ€œweโ€™ve been laying here.โ€ kenma answered for me and this time it was my turn to nod.

โ€œso youโ€™re telling me, i set you two up. and all youโ€™ve been doing is playing games and reading..โ€ kuroo looked like he was gonna blow a fuse.

โ€œno not exactly, we did eat some.โ€ i looked over to the pile of snacks set in the middle of the bed.

โ€œyou two are hopeless...โ€ he sulked and left my room.

i listened to see if he was actually gonna leave and he did.

i snickered and returned to my book, i admit that my eyes needed new attention and that mr.pudding headass was thinking the same thing.

โ€œwhat do you want to do..?โ€ i hesitantly asked kenma as he set his game down.

โ€œcan we make something?โ€

โ€œuh sure, i think my mom bought some ingredients for cupcakes last week. is that alright?โ€ i asked getting up and marking my book.

he nodded and we headed downstairs.

a weird thought came to mind as i was thinking of our conversation.

โ€˜a child.โ€™

my eyes widened and my heart sped up. i cursed at myself for ever thinking that.

what the hell..

i breathed out a sigh and started on the baking. i held out an extra apron for kenma and he gladly took it.

โ€œthree eggs please.โ€ i said reading the instructions and grabbed the flour from the cabinet.

he broke the eggs into the bowl, making sure not to get any eggshells in the mixture.

โ€˜he can break my back.โ€™

the hell? where are all these thoughts coming from?

i suddenly got nervous while pouring some flour in and accidentally got it on kenmaโ€™s chest.

โ€œoh god, iโ€™m so sorry.โ€ i nervously spoke trying to get it off. he raised a brow and took some flower and threw it on my head.

i paused just staring at him.

picking up a handful of flour and threw it on his hair too. i cracked a smile as he shook his head.

soon we were throwing tons of flour on each other. mine and his laughs were echoing in the kitchen.

i squealed as he shoved some down the back of my hoodie.

โ€œkenmaa!โ€

i threw my head back in laughter as i chased him around my kitchen, i wanted to put some down his pants.

โ€œyouโ€™re never going to get me!โ€ he smiled at me. i felt my heart almost stop, he looked cute.

i blushed and an idea sparked in my head. i grabbed an egg from the carton and threw it at him.

just like the flour war next came the eggs, then cocoa, then cupcake mixture.

we were the cupcakes.

โ€œpay back, (y/n).โ€ kenma whispered in my ear, making me shiver, or maybe it was the freezing cold water that was just dumped on my head.

i gasped loudly, flailing my arms every which way.

kenma stood by me laughing, with his arms holding his stomach.

i smirked and shook my long hair next to him, the ingredients getting on him.

โ€œwhat in the world..โ€ i looked up after cleaning my face with a towel.

i saw Kuroo standing in the doorway, eyes bulged out of his head.

โ€œwhat the hell did you two do?โ€ He asked astonished at us and the messed up kitchen.

i started giggling at the mess and at kenma, he looked at me and continued laughing.

โ€œi leave and you two are sitting on your bed, all quiet and calm. But when i come back you two are making the biggest mess in all of history.โ€ he exclaims his eyes bolting around the room and his movements.

โ€œkenma can you help me clean up?โ€ i asked and headed over to get the dish water started.

โ€œyes maโ€™am.โ€ he said and smirked, bringing his hand up and sprinkling pepper above my head.

where the heck did he even get the pepper.

i sneezed and looked up at him, he was flushed.

smiling, i took the dish hose and sprayed him lightly.

earning a gasp and high pitched noise from him.

before he could say anything Kuroo started yelling.

โ€œSO YOU TWO ARE DATING!โ€ he said as if weโ€™ve been caught murdering someone.

i glanced up at Kenma and he looked down at me.

it seemed at if he both agreed to ignore him. a grumbling kuroo helped us clean up. the only things not cleaned was Kenma and i.

โ€œdo you want to stay over and shower or..?โ€ i waited for an answer while taking off my large hoodie, revealing my larger shirt.

my hair was fill with gross food, well, technically cupcake mix.

โ€œi guess i could stay over. iโ€™ll text my mo-โ€

โ€œIโ€™M STAYING OVER TOO!โ€

i looked back at kuroo to see if he has lost his damn mind.

โ€œwhy the hell are you yelling. calm down.โ€

i was honestly surprised by my acts today, iโ€™m not usually an outgoing person. ican tell kenma isnโ€™t either.

โ€œiโ€™ll go to my parents shower, you two take a shower together or separately, i donโ€™t care.โ€ i smiled and gathered my things after giving kenma my brothers clothes. he was in college so i doubt that heโ€™d mind.

after i was done, i seriously thought that they had taken a shower together but it turns out they just took short ones.

instead of making an actual dinner meal, i ordered pizza so kuroo could shut up.

โ€œkuroo, youโ€™re acting a lot like bokuto today. definitely not a good sign.โ€ i said and turned on a movie in my room.

โ€œhey! thatโ€™s mean- oh.โ€ he realized, i guess he mustโ€™ve been spending much more time with him.

i was eager to sleep since i hadnโ€™t got any last night. kenma and kuroo slept on the air mattress.

diving under my covers i fell into a deep slumber.

until i was awoken by kenma, i groaned sitting up and rubbing my eyes.

โ€œkenma? whatโ€™s wrong?โ€ i checked my clock, it was one in the morning.

โ€œkuroo took over the air mattress. iโ€™m gonna sleep with you.โ€ he softly spoke and lightly scooted me over to the wall.

โ€œuhm, okay i guess?โ€

i closed my eyes and waited for kenma to stop moving so i could sleep.

โ€œ(y/n)? about what kuroo said, if we were to date we wouldnโ€™t tell him right?โ€

it was dark so i couldnโ€™t see his face, i could only guess at what he was hinting at.

โ€œy-yeah..โ€

โ€œwell, can we do th-that..uh, date e-eachother.โ€

my face was burning underneath the covers.

โ€œiโ€™d like that v-very much, k-kenma.โ€

i felt him pull me closer to his chest and kiss my cheek.

โ€œgoodnight, (y/n).โ€

i smiled and closed my eyes, i guess love wasnโ€™t a waste of time.
