my palms grew sweaty as inuoka once again changed the subject. i was starting to grow insecure about myself due to this silly reason.

i have always wanted to meet his family. seeing as mine is one iโ€™m not fond of, i was eager for his.

โ€œ(y/n)? youโ€™re not busy this saturday, right? do you maybe want to go to the movies?โ€ sล beamed with brightness awaiting my response.

โ€œsure,โ€ itโ€™s not like iโ€™d have plans anyway. leaving my house was all i did, if not iโ€™d be surrounded by my parents fighting all the time.

โ€œgreat!โ€ he took my hand in his and started racing down the hallway. weโ€™ve been together for almost a year now, he had such a unique personality.

however, iโ€™ve grown used to his unusual bursts of energy.

inuoka was definitely leading us up to the rooftop with lev and yaku. weโ€™d always eat there everyday, unless it rained.

the smell of fresh summer air polluted my lungs as i felt the blazing sun beam upon us while we ate.

once i finished my bento, i had leaned on inuokaโ€™s shoulder. he smiled warmly, wrapping his arm around me.

i watched yaku glare at us in disgust, even though his boyfriend was right beside him.

โ€œyaku-senpai, can we-โ€ the russian first year was cut short as yaku elbowed him in his ribs.

i stifled a laugh while sลโ€™s laughter rang through the wind.

โ€œhey! itโ€™s not funny!โ€ lev groaned holding his waist.

who knew yaku could be so violent to his partner.

โ€œyeah, sure itโ€™s not.โ€ i chuckled, grabbing my bento box and checking the time.

โ€œsล? itโ€™s about time we head back.โ€ i stood up, being able to toward over him for a couple of short seconds.

โ€œoh? already? well, see you guys at practice!โ€ inuoka frantically waved with one hand.

i giggled pushing him lightly to the door. while we were walking towards our classes, i decided this will be the last time i ask.

โ€œsล, t-this aaturday, can we stay at your house for movies instead?โ€ looking down, cursing myself mentally for stammering.

โ€œmy place? (y/n), iโ€™ve been meaning to tell y-โ€

โ€œhey inouka! youโ€™re going to be late if you dilly dally!โ€ i heard one of his classmates say to him.

he nervously turned back to me and gave me a soft kiss on my forehead. which left me in shivers with butterflies in my stomach.

โ€œiโ€™ll tell you later, i promise.โ€ sliding his right pinky through my left one.

i nodded my head, wanting to get out of here as soon as possible. it was embarrassing really.

when he turned around, so did i, walking fast in the other direction. since i was in class four, and not one, we had different classes.

feeling the red grow onto my face as i barely made it. i took my seat in the back and put my head down.

what did he want to talk about? was i being too persistent? most likely. he was probably fed up with it, but sล isnโ€™t the one who usually gets mad at people.

all kinds of questions ran through my head, i hadnโ€™t been paying attention in class. by the time i did get out of my head, the bell rung. which signaled the end of the day.

sighing, i grabbed my notebook in my hands and walked out.

inouka had practice today and being the obviously kind person i am, i avoided him so he wouldnโ€™t be late. god knows how many times heโ€™s been late to practice just because of talking to me out of class.

scurrying the halls, i took a different path from our usual one.

relived that he hadnโ€™t followed me, i continued my journey home. i hoped my parents werenโ€™t arguing today, the sound of yelling, door slamming, and contents thrown about scared me.

however, that seemed as a wish that would never come true.

as i neared my beloved house, i could hear the sounds of shouting from outside. i didnโ€™t want to go through the front door because theyโ€™d see me.

not that it actually mattered though, but the chance of getting hit with something would increase. that happened two weeks ago.

i rounded the house, climbing on the tree near my window.

sneakily opening it and softly jumping inside. i quickly began to pack two nights worth of clothes. staying at (f/n)โ€™s house would seem like the better option.

grabbing my red duffle bag, i shoved all my necessities in it and slung it over my shoulder. i stuck a small note card on my bed stating my whereabouts.

not that theyโ€™d check it.

closing my window, i climbed down from the tree. brushing dirt off my skirt, i made my way down a couple of neighborhoods to her house.

i walked past a house that had child bicycles all over the lawn. a couple of children were playing outside, minding their business.

it sure did look like a house that held a big family. u saw, what mustโ€™ve been, their mother come outside and yell for them that dinner was ready.

as soon as she said that, i hurried over to (f/n)โ€™s house because her parents probably made dinner by now.

pressing her doorbell, i was met with (f/n)โ€™s dad.

โ€œhello mr.(f/ln). 2ould it be okay if i stayed over?โ€ i asked, greeting the man like a close family member.

โ€œthey going at it again? well, youโ€™re always welcomed here. please come in.โ€

i smiled and took off my shoes, getting brought into a hug by (f/n).

โ€œhey, mom just made dinner, youโ€™re hungry?โ€ she asked, pulling me into the kitchen.

โ€œyeah,โ€ i helped set the table and sat beside (f/n) as we ate dinner, telling about our day.

suddenly the conversation had switched to me and my dating life. since (f/n) and i have known each other for the longest time, i always spilled everything to her family.

โ€œwell, he said he had to talk to me after class but he was gonna be late if i didnโ€™t go the other way.โ€ i finished up my latest news with them.

โ€œmaybe he texted you? have you checked your messages, but do that when dinner is over sweetie.โ€ her mom told me with a smile.

โ€œyes maโ€™am.โ€

i quickly ate and then helped wash up some of the dishes while (f/n)โ€™s got my shower ready.

walking into her room i saw her pulling on her shirt, she mustโ€™ve took a shower.

โ€œiโ€™m gonna go take my shower now,โ€ i grabbed my clothes from my duffel bag and headed to her bathroom.

โ€œwait, do you want to watch (scary/movie) or (comedy/movie)?โ€ she held up two dvds.

โ€œ(scary/movie).โ€ i pointed to it and she nodded.

iโ€™ve never been fond of scary movies but watching them with my best friend was definitely fun.

โœงโœฆโœงโœฆ

today, sล had told me to meet at the park. i thought we were just going to go to the movie theater but he had other plans.

โ€œwait, really?โ€

โ€œyeah, theyโ€™re really embarrassing. thatโ€™s why i didnโ€™t want you to meet them.โ€ inouka nervously laughed and rubbed the back of his head.

โ€œdo you want to go now or get icecream before we head there?โ€ i asked him, i knew he was nervous but they canโ€™t be that bad, right?

โ€œah! that sounds great!โ€ he laughed pulling me towards an ice cream truck he had his eye on for a while.

i ended up giving my icecream cone to him, only because i loved the way his eyes lit up at the sight of more sweets.

we neared a house i had saw the other day, with all the bicycles around the yard.

โ€œiโ€™m sorry in advance.โ€ he whispered and opened the door before i could process what he said.

โ€œmom? dad? iโ€™m back!โ€ sล shouted taking off his shoes, which were set by lots of other pairs.

โ€œoh! did you bring your girlfriend yet? iโ€™ve been dying to meet her!โ€ i heard a lady shout from the kitchen.

different sounds throughout the house brought me to my senses. i heard the tv on in the living, kids playing, some even playful arguing, and small footsteps on the stairs.

it was definitely a lot to take in, i could feel sลโ€™s eyes burning into my head as i looked around.

โ€œoh my! sheโ€™s so gorgeous! whatโ€™s your name, darling?โ€ the woman i saw the other day, had pulled me into a hug. i spewed out my name, which was muffled by her shoulder.

โ€œ(l/n) y/n). and could you please stop suffocating my girlfriend? iโ€™d like to keep her.โ€ i felt sล pull me back from his motherโ€™s grasp.

โ€œsorry sล, sheโ€™s so cute and this is the first time you brought a girl home! honey! come meet (y/n)!โ€ i heard his mom yell, not in anger, but in pure happiness.

i was surprised by her using my first name off the bat. inouka nudged my arm, causing me to snap my neck towards him.

โ€œiโ€™m sorry, did she make you uncomfortable? i keep telling her about how people might not like that.โ€ he groaned shamefully, i could laugh at how cute he is.

โ€œsล, itโ€™s okay. this is exciting.โ€ i held his hand while he lead me to the living room.

i had met his mom, dad, and five siblings.

โ€œyour siblings do have a lot of energy,โ€ i commented as i watched two small children run after each other.

โ€œwell when your parents are actual crackheads then i guess you get this.โ€ He gestured to himself and siblings.

after that, i had been spending so much time with them that i had forgotten it had got dark.

which concluded of me staying the night, they promised that they wouldnโ€™t mind have another child in the house.

that night changed everything became i had consistently came over and sometimes spent a whole two weeks over.

they had practically said i was their own, which inuoka and i reframed from letting them say that since weโ€™re dating.

โ€œplay the movieee.โ€ i heard (childs/n) whine as he settled on the couch.

โ€œokay, okay. calm down (c/n).โ€ i laughed and pressed play on a disney movie.

it was as if i had become a part of the inouka family. which was all i wanted all along, a family.
