‘Uh, this could wind up being one of those things that sounds better in my head than out loud…but you ARE a real archer. No! I mean, I’m jazzed about Red Arrow, er, we go way back, you know?
But YOU…you’ve made your own place on the team. You have nothing to prove. Not to me, okay?’
And Wally? It sounded…fine, out loud.’

Unless, of course, you’re Aomine Daiki and your friends just so happen to be a group of dorks in secret collectively named the Generation of Miracles. A/N: Set in their Teikou days because pure!mine and dork!mine give me a stupid amount of dokis.
“Dai-chan! Everyone’s been looking for you! Have you been sitting up on the roof all this time?”
Aomine turns toward the familiar voice and grins. “Hah? Did practice start already?”
“An hour ago, baka!” She sighs and clicks her tongue disapprovingly as she peers over him. “What’s gotten into you lately? You’ve been spacing out a lot. Is everything okay?”
“I’m fine!” He laughs then, the sound too loud, almost unnatural, and he internally groans. Satsuki would be able to tell. She can always tell when something’s on his mind, even when he lies and tells her otherwise. “Say, can I ask you something?”
“I knew something was up! What is it? Are you in trouble?”
“Why is that the first thing you always ask?” Aomine raises a brow and shakes his head. “Nah, it’s nothing like that. I just wondered if, I dunno, you’ve ever…” The latter part of the sentence ends in a mumble and he turns away, cheeks heating in embarrassment.
“Have I ever what?” she asks, eyes wide and gazing at him in that way that makes him even more nervous than before he brought up the topic in the first place.
