I wrote a little tiny one shot fic about Yamaguchi and Tsukki exchanging Christmas gifts. I haven’t wrote fanfic in like three months so I’m super rusty but I felt inspired by my love for these two and the fact that I’ve been listening to Christmas music. So.
A Gift To You, From Me.
The mornings were only getting colder.
When Yamaguchi stepped outside he thought for a second he would not be able to take a breath, that the chill in the air had frozen his lungs. Tsukki was standing there waiting for him, though, so he sputtered and coughed and took a breath that was somehow warmer than the air around him.
They shared a greeting muffled by thick scarves and the last vestige of sleep, neither of them fully awake or ready to face another long day. As they walked, their feet crunching the snow beneath them, they did not say much, preferring instead to let the path to school wake them up.
It was the last day of class before the small break for Christmas. There had been talk about volleyball practice on some of the days, but the whole team would not be there. Tsukki was going to visit his brother, and the thought of practicing without him on the court felt wrong. Not seeing him at all for a few days felt wrong, too. Yamaguchi tried to recall the last time he had been apart from Tsukki. He could not remember. Even during school breaks they were frequently together.
Before leaving the house Yamaguchi had put his Christmas present for Tsukki in his coat pocket. If I’m not going to see him over the break, I’ll give it to him after practice, he had thought.
