AU where Kaneki is a street painter while Hide is a street dancer. Kaneki and Anteiku is just a group of people who will randomly paint over any building without permission at night. Their trademark is all of their member wear various kind of mask. Polices always tried to chase them because of the vandalism but they always easily escape from them.
Hide is just one of street dancer who hang out among teenagers at night and have dance competition between them. He is expert in freestyle dancing and always spiced up their event. Local polices also tried to catch them but most of the time those dancers managed to run away from them.
Kaneki and Hide first time meeting when they both flee from the authority and stumbled accidentally with each other as they went to the same path. Kaneki was about to mad at him when Hide pulled him to the dark alleyway and shushed him down. Those polices arrived somewhere nearby them but could not find them since they both were hidden from their eyes. When those polices left the place, Kaneki said thank you and apologized to Hide about what happened earlier. Hide just shrugged it off and said he did not mad at all. Looking at his mask, Hide finally knew that this person is one of the Anteiku, the famous group of street painter. Kaneki was blushing underneath his mask when a complete stranger just praised his artwork. They both introduced their name and reason why they escape from the polices. After that, they finally went to their own destination.
They meet again when Hide saw the masked man just done his painting over a building nearby his apartment. He quickly went to Kaneki and eagerly met him. He even invited Kaneki to meet his gang. Kaneki hesitated at first but seeing this blondie looks really hopeful, he decided to follow him. Suprisingly, Hide’s gang treated him nicely and even admired his work with Anteiku.
After a week being with Hide’s friend every night after his time with Anteiku, Kaneki decided to introduce Hide to Anteiku. Hide was happy to be invited and quickly agreed to come. So after the dance, Hide met Kaneki and Anteiku at a small cafe. That was also the first time Hide saw Kaneki’s face (Anteiku only showed their place to the people they trust deeply). Hide’s first comment was he knew Kaneki would be handsome, but he never thought Kaneki would be drop dead handsome. Kaneki blushed like beet when Hide said like that to him.
Ever since that day, Kaneki and Hide hang out with each other after their time with their gang. Hide would help Kaneki how to dance and Kaneki would teach Hide how to draw. Their relationship blossomed as times goes by.
