Meat Buns

“Thank you for supporting us by watching!”

“The pleasure is ours”

“Of course,” I say.

While Yutaro introduces you to his teammates he begins to brag about how good of a setter you are. Seeing all the guys stare at you, you begin to blush, especially since that number 4 was watching you. As Yutaro brags, Oikawa approaches the group.

“I bet Y/N-san can’t serve anywhere near as good as I can!”

“Shut the hell up, Oikawa. What do you know anyway!” snaps Yutaro.

“Hey do you want to serve for us?” asks one of the boys.

“Asuka, is that okay with you?”

“Sure, I’ll be happy to wait,” she winks “but now you owe me three meat buns.”

Although you’re a bit nervous to set for a whole team, you agree, hoping to prove Oikawa wrong.

You set to number 2 first since both he and Yutaro are middle blockers. After your set, Oikawa yells at you from afar.

“Okay Y/N that wasn’t half bad.”

“Of course not, Oikawa! She’s related to me!” says Yutaro.

“You’re always so full of yourself, Kindaichi” responds Oikawa.

After Oikawa’s response, number four approaches you. As he walks closer to you, you can’t help but notice how attractive he is. He’s not extremely tall, but definitely taller than you.Damn. Seriously, he could totally get it you say to yourself.

“Hey, set for me?” number four asks.

“S-sure,” you stutter.

“Iwa-chan don’t freak her out” groans Oikawa.

Iwa-chan? That is seriously so cute.A few more seconds you stare at Iwa until he has to ask you again if you will set for him. Instantly, you begin to blush as you notice how dumb you look around this boy.

As you set for him, but it’s an absolutely awful set. However, he still manages to strike the ball with a powerful hit.

To avoid your embarrassment, you decide to talk to him as best you can.

“Wow, you’re really good,” you say to him “are you the ace?”

Oikawa approaches both of you.

“Wow Iwa-chan, she thinks you’re the ace,” Oikawa says while slapping Iwa on the back.

“Shut up, Shittykawa, I am the freaking ace,” says Iwa “Yeah, I’m the ace. Iwaizumi.”

Blushing for the millionth time you try to talk to him as best you can without forgetting to talk.

“Oh, right,”

Shit. Why was that what I said?! Whatever, it’s just one guy. It’s not like anything was going to happen anyway.

“Y/N, we’re going to have a practice game tomorrow, will you watch?” asks Oikawa.

The other boys come running over and all ask if you will watch them in their game, so you give in.


“Nice,” says Oikawa “another chance to see your gorgeous face.”

Not sure what to say, you thank Oikawa for his compliment and walk towards where Asuka is sitting.

“Y/N-chan don’t say anything and just turn around.”

When you turn around you see Yutaro smack Iwaizumi and Oikawa on the back of their head but you can’t hear what they’re talking about.

“I know what you’re going to say, Y/N, so I won’t talk about those two guys hitting on you.”

Your face turns red from embarrassment.

“You are so lucky to be able to play with them.”

“It’s nothing. I play with Yutaro all the time,” you shrug.

“Who cares,” she groans “this is totally different because those guys aren’t your cousin.”

“Whatever, Asuka,” you respond “let’s just get the stupid meat buns already!”

Before you leave the gym, you glace once more at Iwaizumi. He’s so hot, what the fuck?! You watch him pack up the volleyball equipment. Apparently, it was for a longer time than normal because you felt Asuka poking you and asking if you can leave already.

“Y/N, I’m hungryyyy,” Asuka whines.

However, Asuka doesn’t take you out of your trance. While you are staring at Iwaizumi, you subconsciously see Yutaro walking over to you.

“You okay, Y/N?”

“Kindaichi-kunnn,” Y/N is too busy looking at your hot friends to move.”

As you hear this, you realize what’s going on.

“What?” you mumble. “That’s not true.”

“Okay,” says Yutaro “well whatever, I’m leaving. Goodnight.”

“Night, Yutaro.”

“Goodnight, Kindaichi-kun. See you tomorrow.”

After Yutaro leaves, Asuka pulls you out of the gym.

“Those guys must play volleyball really well since you’re so interested in them”

“No,” you say “I mean they’re really good but I’m not super interested.”

“Right,” says Asuka “you’re just interested in that number four guy.”

“Iwaizumi? No way. But I was right that he’s the ace.”

“Wow, Y/N, you’re something else. Just like your set for him.”

“Shut up, don’t be so mean!” you say to Asuka.

As you get closer to the store, Asuka realizes something.

“Oh my god!”

“Oh my god!!!”

“What?” you groan.

“Y/N, you found out that number four guy’s name, right?”

“Yeah, so what?” you say to her.

“What’s that number two’s name?!”

“Well to be honest I don’t know.”

“Oh come on, Y/N! You set to him but you have no idea what his name is?!” Asuka sighs.


After buying Asuka her meat buns, you say goodbye to her and head home.

Back at your house you see the lights on in your garage and decide to walk in to check on your dad.

“Hey dad,” you call out to an empty room.

“Oh hey, Y/N,” your dad calls from under the car “how was school?”

It isn’t anything new to see your dad working on the car from the bottom so you weren’t phased that he was under there.

“It was cool, I guess.”

“Y/N, could you pass me a flashlight really quick?”

You grab a flashlight and kneel at the side of the car by your father’s feet. As you look under the car you see your dad working intensely on the car but are glad to see he’s so excited while working on his new project.

“Thanks,” he says “so did you do anything interesting today?”

“Well, I watched Yutaro play with his team and set for a couple of his friends.”

“How’d they do?”

“They were really good, Yutaro found a great team.”

“Are you actually interested in volleyball now, Y/N?”

“I still don’t want to join a team, but it’s fun watching them play.”

Your dad knows your anxiety gets really horrible when you have the pressure to play a real game which is why you never want to join a team. Nevertheless, he still tries to get you to join one.

“Alright,” your dad says with a hint of sadness “at least you still play with Yutaro.”
