Hi~ im back and i just wanna say i really love my matchup it's really detailed and cute :) anyway can i request a scenario of mao,rei,izumi and arashi when they found out about their s/o being abused at home.
i’m glad to hear you loved it !! what a request this was ! i was surprised to see so many angsty requests in the askbox haha anyway here you go !!! izumi isn’t in this post, because i combined this request with another very similar request that only asked for izumi, so i made his scenario a bit longer and more specific ! i’ll post it in the next ask, and i’ll tag you so that you’ll be able to see it ♥ - mod mademoiselle
think you’ve ever seen him like that. His eyes are wide
in shock and his mouth is still open. He suddenly realizes it and closes it
immediately in a moment of self-consciousness. You can’t help but notice it,
though. You’re watching him hesitantly, wondering if now was the right time to
tell him. He gets up for a moment, checking if the door to his bedroom is closed.
Then he comes back and sits on the bed, shyly taking your hand in his.
sorry, I really wasn’t expecting that was what you had to tell me. I’m…” He
painfully swallows, eyes darting all over the place. “I’m so sorry. I don’t
know what to say.” You’ve never seen Mao being so at a loss for words. Usually
he finds a solution, he jokes a bit and all your problems are solved. So you thought
that maybe… If it was him, maybe he could solve even that… But you were
probably being childish. And now you’re starting to regret you told him. If
you’d just managed to hold it in a little longer, he wouldn’t have had to know…
Mao. Never mind. I’m fine.” You manage a smile, although it feels forced. Mao’s
eyes are oh so worried, when they meet yours, and the grip of his hand on yours
you’re not. I’m so… God, I’m so lame.” He lets out a little laugh, but you
just know he doesn’t really feel like it. His mouth is contorted like it always is when he’s angry at himself. “I mean, I can’t do anything. You’re…. you’re
in pain and I can’t do anything.” For a moment, you’re at a loss for words too.
He just keeps going, eyes resolutely avoiding yours.
in manga, the guy suddenly, like, does something and saves the day… and he
becomes happy with the person he loves. But I can’t do anything like that. It’s
really sad for some reason.” He lets out another weak laugh, but it feels like
it’s more for himself than for you. “I’m sorry. I love you, and I really want
you to be happy, but… I can’t do anything. I mean, it’s not like you can come
live here.” Your breath suddenly hitches in your throat : Mao’s eyes are
glistening. He’s crying. And yet he bravely holds the tears back.
that you have to go through that… But I’ll be here, okay ? No matter what time
it is, just call me if anything happens. I’ll answer.” His eyes, still brimming
with tears, are now bravely fixed on yours. His fingers hold yours so tight that
it’s a bit painful, but you don’t mind. It feels good to be connected to him. To
feel you have someone to rely on. Before you realize it, you’re hugging him close
and he’s so shocked he doesn’t hug back immediately.
sorry I had to tell you… You make me so happy, you know… ?” you manage to
hiccup, tears streaming down your own face. Mao tries to laugh again, but the
sound is so weird you suspect he’s crying more openly now. Your thoughts are
quickly confirmed when one hot droplet falls on your neck. But you couldn’t
care less, right now, and you quickly add : “Just you being here is enough.
Thank you so much. You have no idea how much I needed that…”
breaks the hug and cups your cheek. His eyes are red, and his nose is running a
bit too, but what matters is that he’s smiling. That smile is so full of love,
compassion and hope that you can’t help but smile back, shyly. “I’m just glad
you’re happy. I’ll stay by your side, forever, okay ? Don’t hesitate. You can
rely on me.” He seems to hold back for a moment, but eventually he inches his
face closer to yours and softly kisses you. It lasts only a couple seconds, yet
it felt like so much more.
a part-time job. I’ll save money so that you can move out as soon as you can,
okay ? We can do it if we work together, I’m sure.” He’s still smiling, and you
suddenly are reminded that it was what you were missing.
But for now, everything feels okay. Everything will be okay. He’s here with
you, after all.
know why Rei suddenly asked you to come at his house after classes. He’s
usually busy, and you are too… You still came, although you were fidgeting
nervously. He did seem pretty serious when you’d last seen him.
He was the
one who came to greet you at the door. His face was stiff and unusually grave.
He didn’t speak when leading you to his room. Instead, he looked… deep in
thought. When he nodded to a chair, you sat down. He did the same, still looking displeased. You were about to ask him what was wrong when he interrupted
you tell me ?” You looked up at him, eyes wide. He dropped the usual tone and
outdated words he always used. Whatever happened, it’s serious business to him.
you talking about, Rei… ?” He shaked his head, almost angrily, but immediately
realized it and reverted to his former grave self.
happens at your house.” You couldn’t answer anything to that, and instead just
looked down. You were hoping he wouldn’t find out… He didn’t talk, looking at
you pointedly. That was when you understood he was waiting for an answer.
“I… I don’t
want to hide anything from you, I swear, it’s just… I was hoping you wouldn’t need to know…” He didn’t answer immediately, instead carefully studying your
face. Once he found whatever he was looking for, he just sighed. A very long
and pained sigh. He looked so tired and vulnerable, shoulders slumped and eyes
down… But soon enough the usual determined and all-knowing Rei was back. And
he was staring at you intently.
hoping we wouldn’t need to come to this. You don’t have to keep anything a
secret from me… Because I will help you, no matter what it is that makes you
suffer.” It wasn’t even a question. He asserted this with complete calm and
confidence. You couldn’t help but want to believe him, even for
just a second… even though you knew better than to hope for someone to come and
waiting for something like that, you know… but it’s just not how things go in
real life, Rei.” When he saw you looking so down, he couldn’t help but bite his
lip softly. He didn’t like this at all. Soon he was up and gently hugged you from behind, bending slightly to embrace your shoulders. His breath tickled your ear when he whispered.
“I can help
you. I know people. You can trust me. Should you want it, you could live here.
And even if you don’t, I would find a solution.” He paused a moment to put a
strand of hair back behind your ear. “I am just sad to see you didn’t come to
You couldn’t stand it any longer and stood up to rush in his arms. He
didn’t say anything, just holding you close and letting you cry silently in
his chest. His hand traced small circles in the small of your back, as if to
tell you he’s here and he’ll help you through anything. Once your head peeked up, he gave you a handkerchief he seemingly produced out of nowhere.
sorry, Rei, it’s not that I don’t trust you…” He nodded, gently caressing your
my dear. I know. This is not what I meant.” His fingers stroked along your hair
for a bit longer, and the motion was pleasant and soothing, enough for you to
calm down a bit.
always doing so much for me, and I’m… I can’t even tell you when things are not
okay.” He tutted, shaking his head. One of his long fingers slipped under your chin,
forcing you to look him in the eye.
blame yourself, love. I should have come to you earlier. If you would just
promise me you won’t hesitate to come to me directly next time…” He smiled, and
you smiled back unknowingly. It’s so hard to feel anxious or sad around your
Thank you so much, Rei…” This time, he let you hide in his chest. You couldn’t see it, but he was smiling softly, playing with your hair.
mention it. Shall we forget about this ? You can stay here for the night. I’ll
take good care of you, for once. Let me make you happy.” When he leaned down to
kiss your neck, you found yourself closing your eyes and abandoning yourself in
his arms. Maybe for once, you could take him up on it and forget about everything
for a blissful moment…
The sun was
almost setting, and you still didn’t know why Arashi suddenly asked to see you.
He wanted you to meet him as soon as you could, in the local park. Here, Arashi
could come pretty fast, as it wasn’t too far away from his own place. It had only
been a couple hours since he walked you back home though… You were a bit
worried. Maybe something happened… ?
playing on one of the playground’s swings when he rushed to you. He was out of breath : did
he run all the way here… ?
“Oh my oh
my ! Dearie, are you okay ? Are you hurt anywhere ?!” He started examining your
arms and face, much to your surprise.
“Yes… ? What
happened, Arashi, is there something wrong ?” He sighed in relief, hugging you
close in a rib-crushing motion.
“Oh my god…
I thought something terrible happened, I was soooo worried !” You couldn’t see his face, as he was still holding
you to his chest, but his voice was shaky…
fine”, you laughed, gently pushing him away to look at him in the eye. “Really,
what happened ? You’re being weird, Arashi.” You were expecting him to tease
you back, but he didn’t. He looked so serious…
“I wish it
was just me, sweetie. I’m sorry I’m so late… I called a few people to know
what they thought of it before I came. I didn’t want to do something a bit too…
you know ?” No, you didn’t, but you still nodded. He couldn’t hold a little
giggle when he saw you looking so confused, but you could tell he didn’t really
feel like joking around or teasing you that night.
know, I walked you back home ? And after you came back home safely, I was about
to go back too, but I saw someone texted me, so I took my time to answer and,
you know… ? Someone started to yell and all, and I was, like, so worried ?” You
felt yourself becoming paler already. Did he… hear it… ? He was right, your
relatives were there when you came home and didn’t give you the warmest welcome,
but… Could he have heard… ? Did he know ? He didn’t notice how agitated you
were getting and kept going hurriedly.
anyway, I thought maybe it was coming from another house, but then I heard your
name ? So I was hesitating, you know, like should I come in and defend you or…
? But then they started yelling even louder and I ran outside, I
was sooo panicked ! Before I knew it I’d called Izumi and Kasa-kun and I was
asking about their opinion on the matter, and, well, here we are… I rushed here
as soon as I was done talking things through with them. But this isn’t important at all !
Are you okay ?!” You blinked, trying to hold back your tears. So he was worried
about you… ?
fine, really.” You looked away, unable to face his worried gaze. He really didn’t
need more and hugged you tight again, one hand pressed on the back of your
to be fine, sweetie… I’m here with you, and now that I know I’ll be extra careful,
okay ? Like, you can come sleep at my place ! I already told my parents about
it and they’re okay with it. If you’re in danger it’s no problem ! Also, I
wanted to call the cops, you know ? But Izumi told me maybe it wasn’t a good
idea, with that smug face of his, and I was really pissed for some reason ? Oh,
don’t worry though, I didn’t call them or anything, even though I definitely
felt like coming in and getting in a fight like in the good old da—“ You kissed
him suddenly, effectively silencing him. Not that he minded : he soon started
kissing you back, as eagerly as the first day. When he finally let you go, his
eyes were twinkling happily but his face was still pretty serious.
on, I was being all serious for once ! I’m not kidding, you know. You can
really stay at my place tonight. I’d be happy if you did actually !” Oh,
shucks. What could you answer when he was looking at you worriedly like that ?
Really, that guy was doing everything as he pleased.
Maybe it’s fine, just tonight. But you don’t need to, you know…” He huffed his
cheeks in protest, effectively managing to make you smile again.
“But I want
to, actually. Besides, my mother’s pretty worried and she’d be glad you come at
our house, just so she can see you’re fine. Alright ?” Before you could even say
anything, he was leading you back to his place, one arm around your waist and
chirping happily to lift up your spirits. You couldn’t help but smile tenderly. He
may not look the part, but he’s really worried about how you feel. Really, you were
so glad to have him…
“He expresses his emotions honestly. He even makes me happy whenever he is happy somehow."
"I think he’s a strong person. I saw a preview for Tensai! Shimura Doubutsen the other day where Aiba-kun was crying the whole time, but I think it takes a certain strength to be able to show that side of you on TV. I would never let people see me like that, after all. It’s the same with taking being mercilessly bullied during a TV show and turning it into something funny. I think it’s the "strength of being able to show your weaknesses”. I don’t really know how other people view him, but I find him very manly.“
"He’s the greatest friend that I have met when I was 13 years old. We still hang out no matter what, and he is also like a family member to me.”
"The memories that have remained from around the beginning were of a drama called "V no Arashi”, which everyone was featured in. Aiba-chan was running a fever at the time, but he never spoke a single word about it. I remember thinking at the time, “Ahh, so he’s a manly person, he’s pretty tough”. He’s Arashi’s mood-maker. He’s cheerful, he’s easily moved to tears. He’s just like a sun, a person who would brighten his surroundings. But, there’s a lot about him that’s worrying. Today at the recording for a music program as well, no matter how many times we checked it over he still couldn’t do the dance at all. Like ‘It’s already been 10 years, are you going to be okay?’. Eventually, Aiba-chan worked up a sweat dancing during the actual performance. What point of his would I recommend to girls? It seems that Aiba-can can “pass through by recognition alone at pretty much all zoos”, so dates won’t be a problem with him. And, the stores Aiba-chan and I go to often overlap! That’s why, I’d like us to each be introduced to a single store that both of us don’t know about, and widen our areas of activities.“
