kuroken + animal crossing?
“I don’t get it,” Kuroo says, hooking his chin on Kenma’s shoulder. “You shake the trees and money falls out of it?”
“Yeah. Also when you hit the right rock.”
“What the heck. Why isn’t real life like that?”
Kenma huffs in amusement. He shifts his weight back, resting against Kuroo’s chest, feeling warm and slightly sleepy. Kuroo’s visiting for the weekend, and Kenma doesn’t want to miss a single second of it. He’s missed being able to sit like this, close enough to feel Kuroo’s heartbeat, close enough to feel Kuroo’s body heat. It’s so easy to fall back into this comfort, Kenma almost wants to cry.
“Wait, did you name the town Nekoma?”
Kenma presses his lips together, but his cheeks are flaming. Kuroo laughs, the sound low and familiar in Kenma’s ear. He focuses on guiding his avatar back home.
“I want to show you something,” he says. He waits for the loading screen to fade, navigating to the room he’s been carefully designing. When his avatar steps in, he feels more than hears Kuroo gasp.
“Is that… my room?”
Shyly, Kenma nods. “I wanted to keep your room how it was when… when we were kids. I mean, it’s still—it’s still there, but you’re living in the dorms now, and I just…”
Kuroo sits up, prodding Kenma gently. “You just…?”
Kenma ducks his head. “I wanted to have a piece of you here, too. To keep me company.”
There’s a pause. And then Kuroo is nuzzling his face into Kenma’s neck, tickling him and nearly causing him to drop the game, but Kenma doesn’t mind. He turns and tackles Kuroo back onto the bed with a hug.
“You know,” Kuroo says some time later. They’re lying on their sides now, Kenma’s head pressed into Kuroo’s chest. His DS is still playing the cheerful 7 pm tune, but Kenma’s eyes are barely open now. “Now that I’ve watched you play, I kind of want to get the game myself.”
Kuroo shuffles closer, pressing his lips against Kenma’s forehead. “Mm. That way, I can visit you in that little room you built me, whenever you want, yeah?”
Kenma’s already half asleep, but he drifts off with a smile on his face.
