Hello~ I found your D:M series about 3 days ago and I read all of them already. They're so good and I love them so much ^^ Just a little idea I had: Akashi (or Masaomi) loses his wallet and experiences a day without money on hand.
Youji is at work when he gets the call. The mechanized voice informs him that he has a collect call from “I’M NOT GIVING YOU MY NAME YOU STUPID PIECE OF INFERIOR—” and asks him if he would like to accept the charges.
Slightly amused at the thought of the multi-billionaire calling collect, Youji accepts the call and says, “What the hell, Masa-chan? Are you poor now?”
“Youji! Youji you have to come and get me! I don’t have my phone or my wallet and I’m pretty sure I’m in a disreputable part of town!”
Since Masaomi tended to think anything with a supercenter was a “disreputable part of town” Youji tends not to put too much stock in this claim. He continues working at his computer, “How did that happen?”
“Akane-chan! That horrible woman abandoned me without my phone! Or wallet! I’m going to fire her.”
Masaomi would pretty much be lost without his personal assistant, so Youji recognizes this as the idle threat that it is. “Wow, you must have really pissed her off this time, what’d you do?”
“I am her boss! I’m allowed—hey, wait, why do you always assume I did something wrong?”
Youji decides that question really doesn’t dignify a response.
“Yes, OK, fine, yes, I did something wrong, but would it kill you to be on my side?”
“I am on your side, Masa-chan, I haven’t hung up on you yet, have I?”
“Don’t you dare! You have to come rescue me! There’s whole crowds of shifty looking people. I think they’re in a gang. And someone was passed out on the sidewalk, and something smells funny.”
“It’s the smell of fresh air,” Youji says.
“Well, it’s terrible. Would you come and get me already?”
“I’m at work right now.”
“Youji, you are a terrible friend.”
“I didn’t say I wasn’t going to get you, I’m just pointing out that there are more obvious people you should be calling. Like any one of your millions of employees.”
“Seijuurou would find out if I did that,” Masaomi says darkly. “And then he would win all the points forever and I can’t have that.”
Youji has no idea what that means but is absolutely convinced he doesn’t need to know. “You’re telling me you can’t buy your own employees’ silence?”
“No, I can, that’s not the bigger issue. It has to be you because I need one of my credit cards. I, err, may have broken a window and I feel compelled to pay the owner back.”
That should be an interesting story. “What makes you think I have one of your credit cards?”
“You’re telling me you don’t?”
Youji thinks about the last time he picked Masaomi’s pocket and also how much he spent and says, “Yeah, OK, I’m leaving. Give me your crossroads and I’ll be there as quick as I can.”
“Hurry! There are teenagers nearby and they’re closing in!”
A/N: Hahaha, thanks friend! I am quite honored you read through the series in that amount of time =) I almost never respond to prompts this quickly, but the inspiration hit me hard on this one because I am such a sucker for Masaomi and Youji interactions. (Akashi, I figured, would have Absolute Order to fall back on, so he wouldn’t need to worry if he was without his wallet). Thank you again! Hope you enjoyed!!
