Prompt: MC is getting bullied at work and the guys protect her.
I felt so bad for the anon-chan who gave me this request because I read your ask wrong! Anyways, I’m still going to do it nonetheless so enjoy!
Tsumugu (since anon really wanted his I did him first):
You were heading out to an interview when some old coworkers stopped you in the lobby. “Hey Natsumi?” A female employee called out.
You wiped your head around to see a group of girls you used to work with, all part of the Seasonelle fan club as they appeared in the office on a regular basis. “What’s up?” You asked.
“So how does it feel to be with the Seasonelle team because of your looks?” A woman asked. You looked at her confused as they all chimed in, either saying that your work was horrible or you were only there because of you looks. You just about had enough of their insulting when someone rested a hand on your shoulder.
“I think you should stop talking like you know everything.”
You turned around to see Tsumugu, a glare painted on his face as he stared at the women. “Next time you want to insult someone, make sure your better than them.” He said, putting his arm around your shoulder and dragging you out of the lobby.
Muffled complaints of the women were in the distance as your eyes fixed on Tsumugu’s profile. His face was still stern as you both made your way out of the office and he got you a taxi to take to your interview.
“Tsumugu you seem more upset than I do.” You said, holding back a chuckle. “Thank you.”
A faint blush appeared on Tsumugu’s face as he ruffled your hair, “You know I couldn’t watch anyone talk bad about my woman.” He said as he sent you off to your interview.
You were walking towards the break room and getting a coffee to prepare for overtime. Making your way back, a guy from your old division stopped you. “Hey Natsumi which guy on the team are you sleeping with to keep that job?”
You quickly turned around. “Excuse me?” You asked as the guy crept forward.
“I said which guy you fu-”
All of a sudden the man was pushed up against the wall, face being pushed into it while someone grabbed his tie, yanking it forward.
“Minato!” You called out, not expecting him to show up.
“Who do you think your talking to low life?” He asked, glaring at the man. “Only cowards insult women.” As he released his tie, he muttered something about him being luck they were at work as he gripped your arm and walked off briskly.
“Jeez I was wondering what was taking so long and here I find you in trouble again.” He said as walked.
You gave him a wry smile, “Thank you for sticking up for me.”
The statement caused a blush to spread on his face, “Ah Natsumi that face is no fair.”
You just came back from an interview, exhausted and ready to write an article as you made your way to your desk. As you were in the elevator, someone called for you to hold it.
As two guys ran in, you realized you used to work with them in your old division. “Hello.” You said, pushing the button for your floor.
“Ah, so miss hot shot doesn’t even have time to ask us which floor were on?” One of the guys called out. You turned to look at them curiously when the distance between you and him was rapidly closing.
“Um, excuse me?” You called out, wondering what the hell they were doing.
“I think this little one needs a lesson.” The other man called, reaching over to press the emergency stop button for the elevator.
You were in a mad panic when the doors dinged opened and Kaoru walked in to see the scene before him. “Kaoru!” You called out, half in panic and half in surprise.
His face held no emotion as he shoved the other two men out and watched the doors closed. All at once he took you into his arms, breathing in the scent of your shampoo from your hair as he caressed your back. “Are you alright?” He asked worriedly.
You nodded into his chest as your arms naturally found their way around his broad back, “Yeah just a little shocked is all.” You said.
“Next time I see them I’ll make sure they understand not to go near you.” He said, looking into your eyes.
You smiled up at him, “Thank you. I can always count on you.”
You and Shusei were walking towards the reference room when you heard someone call out to Shusei, “Oi Shusei can you come look at this?”
As he walked of to see what was going on you continued to head to the reference room. Upon getting their you noticed some of your old co-workers just about to leave. “Oh hey Natsumi.” One of them called out, walking past and hitting your shoulder. You stumbled a bit and turned around when they called out a sarcastic sorry and left.
Wondering what that was all about you proceeded to get the reference materials and make you way back to your desk, submerging yourself in your work.
Days went by and countless encounters like that kept happening. With either small shoves, rude comments and harsh glances, you had no idea what was going on. You decided to confront the duo who kepy harassing you as you asked them to come to the roof.
“You really are stupid aren’t you?” One of them called out, flipping her hair off her shoulder.
“Stay away from Shusei, he’s not just yours.” The other one clarified.
Stunned, you looked at both of them with confusion when one girl pushed you against the shoulder hard causing you to stumble backwards.
“Ah!” You called out, but you felt no impact on the ground. Instead, you were being held by familiar arms. Looking up you saw Shusei’s face, a plastered on smile and anger in his eyes as he asked if you were ok.
“I’m fine.” You said, steadying yourself.
“I don’t think it’s nice to pick on another, don’t you agree ladies?” He asked, trying his hardest to mask his disgust in his voice as the girls scampered off. “Are you really alright?” He asked again once you two were alone.
“It’s ok.” You said, showing him a smile.
He laughed and pulled you in for a hug, “Next time tell me if this is happening to you. You can rely on me you know.” He said, pulling back to give you a quick kiss.
“I’m going to get coffee, anyone else want some?” You called out to the team, slowly making your way to the door. Everyone proceeded to ask for their usual as you headed out.
Coming back with two trays in your hands, you were about to give Minato his coffee when someone bumped into you from behind, causing his coffee to spill on the floor. “Oh crap, I’m so sorry! Here take mine we get the same anyways!” You called out, panicking to clean up the mess you thought you caused.
Although you didn’t realize Chiaki watching you from his desk, a displeased look on his face as he has been watching this for a while know.
Some of the women who were part of the “fan club” for the Seasonelle team kept harassing Natsumi. Bumping into her, stealing her documents and such, but she was to clueless to think someone was doing this on purpose, instead she believed it was her own forgetfulness.
This caused many meetings with the growler.
Just about having enough, Chiaki walked up to the group of girls, “Hey!” He called out.
They turned around with hearts in their eyes and all at once called out his name, “Yes Chiaki?”
He rolled his eyes, not even bothering with a fake smile. All eyes in the office were on his as he spoke out, “I think it would be best to stop bullying Natsumi here. Stealing her files and causing her physical discomfort don’t you agree?” He asked, causing the color to drain from the girls faces. “And next time you need to come up here, I’ll bring down whatever you need, so stay in your rabbits hole and out of our hair.” He said, flashing them a smile.
Turning around he looked at you, his eyes telling you to follow him, and you did after you passed out all the coffees.
Walking into the conference room, you were met by his lips. A strong, heated kiss that caused you to back up against the door. “Mmh.” You moaned.
“You idiot.” He said as he pulled away and flicked your forehead.
“Idiot, idiot, idiot.” He repeated, causing three more flicks on your head. “Be more aware of your surroundings, they were causing you a lot of trouble.” He said, looking into your eyes.
You smiled, touched that he was watching over you, as you wrapped your arms around him for a gentle embrace. “Alright.”
Walking through the office at work you plumped into your desk chair to notice a note on your desk. Curious, you opened it to reveal a threat:
‘Leave the Seasonelle team or you’ll regret it.’
Shocked, you stared at the note when Akiyoshi walked up to you, trying to ask you something until he noticed the piece of paper in your hands. He plucked it out and read the contents. Enraged, he called the team in for a meeting, stating that you weren’t to be alone for a while due to the threat.
Everyone was worried about you as the notes kept coming, along with accidents to your work space. Chair being broken, files wiped, expired food in the break room. You had no clue what to do, but Akiyoshi ensured you to wait it out until they found out who was doing this.
You were just heading out of the office and on your way home from work. Akiyoshi still had business to do, so you thought you would make dinner early and wait for him at home.
Although these past few weeks walking home alone has been troubling you. You felt you were being watched, followed, so Akiyoshi insisted that he always bring you home.
Quickening your pace you set off when you felt the presence again.
Turning around you were met by strong hands, pushing you against a nearby building. The person put a hand over your mouth and was about to talk when he was pushed off of you. Shocked, you realized that Akiyoshi was on top of him and punching him in the face, breathing heavily.
“Akiyoshi stop!” You called out, grabbing his hand and pulling him off.
Still breathing heavily, Police arrived and took the man away.
“Natsumi.” Akiyoshi called out. You winced, bracing for a yelling when he wrapped his arms around you. “Jeez you always find trouble.” He said, combing his fingers through your hair.
You realized you stared to shake when he picked you up and started to walk home. You were in to much of a state of shock to protest, so instead you gripped onto his shirt tightly as you both made your way home.
“I’ll always be there for you so don’t worry.” He said, looking down at you with a soft smile.
Ohhhh! I hope the anon-chan enjoyed this one! Gave me a break from all the KBTBB requests! I hoped you all enjoyed!
