Can I get a scenario where Bokuto is a merman and he's friends with a human girl and he always brings her pretty seashells, shark teeth, and other interesting things from the sea and she brings him something from her world and even if she thinks it's simple he's freaking out because each gift is cooler than the next
Since the day he (
quite literally) swam into your life, it’s been a whirlwind of surreal reality. The fairy tales that littered your childhood and myths that constantly made you question vitality all came to surface in the form of an energetic merman. His presence caught you by surprise in the beginning, in a complete state of disbelief that he was actually what he vouched until your eyes caught the brilliant gleam of bronze scales. The pair of you conversed for the duration of the night, each tossing questions about the worlds above and below. You’d have stayed if it weren’t for the chilling weather. Ever since you had been meeting in secret in a hidden lagoon, basking in a world that was revealed for your eyes alone.
The water felt warm against your toes, ripples of the ocean bouncing off the walls of the cove casting a luminescent glow. It was without a doubt the most beautiful place you’d ever set your sights on, but not even the scenery could compare to that of Bokuto’s. It seemed almost as if he grew more radiant with each passing day. Bronze and rustic scales crossed paths with flesh, dotting around his shoulders and arms before fading into a long appendage decorated with delicate fins. But his eyes were another sight to behold. One glance would easily compare to gazing across the sea during the sunset, hints of purples and pinks flecking the irises. Bokuto was truly beautiful.
You’d been too consumed with your inner musings to realise that the merman himself had appeared, making his presence known with a quick flick of his tail, water whipping at your thighs. Jumping, you turned to the male, returning the teasing smirk that tugged at his lips.
“I hope I didn’t keep you waiting for too long. It was a bit hard to get away from Akaashi without him following me.” Bokuto sighed, slumping over in a defeated manner as if the act had drained all the energy from his body.
“Not at all. I actually enjoy being here and just soaking it all in,” Which was the truth. Sometimes you dreamed of living in a place such as this. “But I do wish I was a mermaid so I could truly understand what your world is like.”
Bokuto shook his head in response, eyes lighting up in a blaze akin to a fire. “Your world seems much more interesting than mine besides, I think you’d get tired of eating seaweed all the time.” He was teasing you, but both of you knew that it was true. It’d be hard to give up human food now that it was engraved into your palette.
Your body suddenly jerked in sudden realisation, swiftly turning around to rummage in your bag. “That reminds me. I brought you something!” You felt around mindlessly until you pulled out a miniature snow globe with a city inside of it. “Be careful not to drop it or you’ll hurt yourself.”
He handled into with care, bringing the foreign object to his face. You couldn’t help but laugh at how much he resembled a child. “Give it a little shake.” Tentatively he shook the globe, watching in pure awe as tiny white flecks began to dance around the sphere in a frenzy.
Golden hues met your own as he wiggled excitedly, tail swishing to match his mood. “This is amazing, I love it! And to thank you, I brought you this.” You could feel your heart throb at the enclosed shell in his hand.
“Thi-this isn’t what I think it is, right?”
“Just open it, ____.” The merman was far too anxious to see if you’d like his gift.
Prying open the mouth to the oyster, a large round pearl sat in the mouth. To say that you were shocked was an understatement. “This is unbelievable! Yo-you can never find oysters where I live, let alone ones containing a pearl. Thank you, Bokuto.” You were tripping over your words in excitement, diving forward to engulf his top half in a tight embrace. Bokuto felt himself stiffen at your actions, warm heat settling into his cheeks as he returned the gesture.
“It’s no-nothing, really! There’s a lot more of these where I live, I can bring you one anytime!” He grinned in an attempt to hide his embarrassment. In truth, he was just happy to have touched you. He would have flipped out of the water if he could have.
“You really don’t have to do that. Just being able to talk to you everyday is a gift enough.” The breathe rushed from your lungs before you could think about what your words could have possibly meant. But you didn’t mind, everything you could have wanted was dangling right at your fingertips.
Standing up, you glanced at the time, noticing that time seemed to be nonexistent when you were with Bokuto. “See you tomorrow?”
“Yeah,” he tossed you a toothy grin. “See you tomorrow.”
