GOM+Kagami+Hanamiya's reaction to their girlfriend asking them to play with a ouija board. (if they say yes, how did it go?)
Kuroko: The room is nearly pitch black, only the light of a single flickering candle illuminating the letters on the ouiji board. Kuroko is staring at his girlfriend as she explains how séances work, only listening to about half her words. Behind him, the sound of creaking floorboards and random tapping seem to be getting louder. There is too much noise in this room. Placing his fingers on the planchette, a chill runs down his spine when he realizes the room has suddenly gone silent.
Kagami: His girlfriend is scolding him, resetting the board for the third time that night since he had been moving the planchette himself. Kagami is looking at her in slight confusion, wondering what he did wrong. “How else is it supposed to move?” When she answers, saying that spirits would move the piece of wood for them, he’s a bit unnerved. Even after they set the board aside for the night, he has his eyes on the planchette, nervously waiting for the moment it would shift unaided.
Kise: At first, Kise agreed to use the ouiji board with his girlfriend, thinking it would be an interesting experience. Once the lights were turned off, curtains drawn closed, and dim candles lit, however, he was singing a different tune. They hadn’t even begun the séance and the table was shaking, scaring him entirely. With a worried smile and gentle voice, his girlfriend tells him to stop fidgeting his legs; the table stops shaking immediately after. They don’t even finish one round before he asks to stop.
Aomine: At first, he’s snorting in disbelief. “You want to talk with ghosts using that?” Eventually though, Aomine agrees to play. Placing both of his index fingers on the moveable heart shaped piece of wood, he has to fight back a yawn as his girlfriend asks the first question. His demeanor changes, however, and a cold, nervous sweat breaks out on the back of his neck when he realizes the planchette has begun moving underneath his fingers. If he wasn’t pushing it, who was?
Midorima: With his obsession over horoscopes and lucky items, Midorima’s girlfriend had thought he would be at least a little interested in her ouija board. She was quickly disappointed, however, when his outright refusal to have anything to do with it was made clear. He’d heard stories of people who had messed with those scraps of wood tied to the supernatural and they never ended happily. Not even his girlfriend’s pout could sway his decision and he held firm in his refusal until she gave up.
Murasakibara: He had refused to participate, insisting that it would be enough for him to sit and watch. Despite saying that it wouldn’t be the same, Murasakibara’s girlfriend continued the séance on her own. His chewing and occasional comment of, “____-chin, it looks like you’re moving the piece of wood” bothered her and eventually she left. Looking at the ouija board she abandoned, his eyes would widen slightly when it twitched on its own and he would follow immediately after her.
Akashi: She had gotten the idea from a movie they had watched together where a person used a ouija board to contact a relative who had passed on. Hearing her thoughts, Akashi agreed that it was a kind gesture for her to offer the chance to speak with his own passed loved one, but he had to refuse. Though he would’ve given anything to speak with his mother again, he didn’t really believe in the so called supernatural powers of a flat piece of wood with letters printed on it.
Hanamiya: With a well-practiced grin that was sly enough to fool anyone, he quickly agreed with her request, though it wasn’t because he believed in the supernatural or anything like that. The entire time they have their hands on the planchette, Hanamiya’s secretly moving it towards wicked sounding answers or nudging the table with his foot. Later on, after she was finished telling her friends about their conversation with “real ghosts”, he would tell her the truth and tease her endlessly about her gullibility for the entire scenario.
Dozens of newspaper and magazine clippings littered the floor of Taylor’s New York apartment. Her boyfriend of almost two years, Calvin Harris, was currently in LA at a music festival so she was taking this time to make his anniversary gift.
Being as high profile of a celebrity as she was, there were a lot of headlines about her in the news. Some of it true, others not so true. There were also a lot of people in the world who felt as if they had a say in her life and her relationships. Most of her fans were supportive of her relationship with Calvin but others were quite rude and nasty. In the past, she had made mistakes in her relationships either by talking about them too much or putting too much faith in others’ opinions. That was why her relationship with Calvin was different and more special.
They tried to keep their relationship out of the public eye as much as possible. Sure, there were bad days when they were excessively followed by paparazzi. And there were days when she wanted to share her relationship with the world so everyone knew how happy she was. But, overall, they kept their love between them and their families and friends. She fit in perfectly with his group of friends and he did the same with hers. Their relationship was her longest one to date and she took that as a good sign. Pretty early on in their relationship they had talked about their futures with each other and what they expected from each other and had been on the same page with what they wanted. They wanted forever. She took a break from her thoughts to get back to her gift. It was going to be a good one. She couldn’t wait to see his face when he opened it.
