Kuroko was panting when he had finally pinned Akashi down, his wakizashi leaning dangerously at the other’s exposed neck.
One more push, one single movement of his hand and he would have succeeded in killing his enemy. But before that, he needed clarification.
"Why did you kill him?" Kuroko asked, wrath seething from his tongue.
"Who?" Akashi asked almost mockingly.
Kuroko pressed his hand inwards, watching a trickle of blood flow along the surface of his blade, “Don’t avoid the question.”
Akashi smiled cruelly, “Somebody needed to push you past your breaking point. Look how far you’ve come because of it.”
Kuroko’s hand hesitated. He wasn’t sure of his purpose anymore. What would killing Akashi do? It wouldn’t bring Ogiwara back.
Akashi chuckled, “It seems I have lost.” He stared into Kuroko’s wavering eyes, “But it doesn’t seem to be your win either.”
(WHAT IS THIS EVEN— A parallel AU in which instead of Ogiwara losing to Akashi, he is killed by him. Kuroko isn’t pleased—)
