Kagami happened to be visiting Rakuzan since Kuroko asked him to deliver something to Akashi since he had something to do that weekend. Kagami reluctantly agreed and held the package awkwardly in his hand, which he handed to Akashi. When Akashi opened it, his eyes lit up. “Wonderful, Tetsuya chose well.” Kagami raised an eyebrow, completely confused.
However, his suddenly dropping to one knee in front of all his teammates scared the hell out of everyone. Did he get hurt? Kagami stumbled over to help him but Akashi had a look of determination that kept everyone away except for Mibuchi. The brunette stared at Akashi with wide eyes. “Mibuchi Reo, you are the love of my life. I have known that since the first day I met you and, although this may seem clichéd, I’d like to tell you how wonderful you are. There’s nobody else I would spend the rest of my life with other than you. Will you marry me?”
Whispers flooded the gym as everyone stared at the couple in confusion. Mibuchi crying out ‘yes’ and hugging Akashi was the cue for everyone to start cheering. Nebuya grabbed Mibuchi and ruffled his hair. “Good for you, man! I knew this was coming! I knew it!” He barked out a loud laugh.
Hayama skipped over to Akashi and hooked an arm around his neck. “Ne, Akashi, I didn’t know you could be such a romantic! Congratulations!”
Mayuzumi offered his congratulations as well, shaking Akashi and Mibuchi’s hands firmly. “I hope you two play it safe but make sure to stay together, alright?”
The rest of the team gathered around them, offering their feelings and shaking hands and hugging. Akashi smiled. He actually smiled. Everyone was shocked but was excited that perhaps the emperor’s heart had melted.
Meanwhile, Kagami stood on the sidelines, wondering what the hell just happened.
