“It was delicious, thank you Oba-san,” you say to your aunt.
“Of course, dear. I’m glad you enjoyed it.”
Since you live alone with your father, every chance your Oba (aunt) makes a homecooked meal, you are extremely grateful.
“Y/N-san!” You hear your older cousin call from behind you.
As you turn around you see the serious face your cousin makes and you know exactly what he’s going to ask.
“Fine. Let’s go.”
“Hey Y/N!” you hear your father call as you are about to walk outside.
“What doyouthink about my new project?”
“It’s great, dad! I actually really like the car you chose this time.”
“Ha!” your father yells “tell that to your grumpy-ass uncle!”
As your father continues to argue with his brother over the newest car he’s decided to fix up, you walk outside to see your cousin already setting up his volleyball equipment.
“Yutaro, you couldn’t wait like 5 seconds for me to come out?”
“No,” he responds in a serious voice.
For a second you get worried as though you did something to piss your cousin off, but brush it off quickly since he wasstillwaiting for you.
Setting for your cousin has always been something you enjoyed doing. It felt natural. Both of you had been playing together since you were able to hit the ball over the net. However, Yutaro has had way more practice since he was on a real team.
After picking up another ball to set for Yutaro, you get ready in your stance.
“Y/N,” Yutaro blurts out as you throw up the ball “come to my volleyball practice tomorrow after school.”
After hearing your cousin say that, you completely forget to hit the ball you threw up and it hits you right on the head.
Yutaro begins to laugh.I hate it when he laughs at me. Even though it’s the first day of high school for both of us, Yutaro knows I’ve got enough pressure with that to add more anxiety with meeting a bunch of older guys that totally outrank me with their stupid volleyball skills. Anyways, healreadyknows the volleyball team and I know one person.
“Come on, Y/N. I know for a fact you want to go.”
Yutaro shrugs as he picks up the balls he previously hit.
“At least let me introduce you to the first years. Maybe you can make more than one friend this-”
“Shut the hell up, Yutaro!” you yell.
“You know damn well I don’t want to make friends with the stupid boys on your team!”
You storm back inside leaving your cousin completely shocked by what you just said.
