A 10 min ode to how much Nanase Haruka treasures Matsuoka Rin: the Drama
That might as well be its title, seriously.
please forgive me guys it’s been a while since I’ve gotten to ramble about these two idiots and the drama cd nearly killed me so
Everything about that track spells just how much Haru enjoys Rin’s presence and how special their bond is to him. He literally treasures every little thing Rin does or says. This guy soaks up every little detail about Rin as if he were a sponge (even ridiculous things like his hand writing for crying out loud).
Everything, from the most meaningful stuff (Haru outright forgetting to take a bath, his smile as he watches Rin sleep, his wariness when asking if he would be leaving early in the morning and then saying he will join him, etc) to the more circumstantial details (letting Rin borrow any shirt - including one that’s obviously special to him-, saying he can borrow the book - a book Haru obviously didn’t even want anyone touching - if he really wants to, so on so forth) does nothing but highlight it.
Rin complains, teases him, flusters him and Haru meets Rin halfway every time. He teases back and initiates the teasing himself at times (that teasing tone he has when he asks Rin if he can sleep without his pillow will be the death of me I swear). Rin doesn’t listen and Haru lets him get away with it and plays along. And through it all: Haru is happy.
I love how we can hear it in the way he addresses Rin, but even more than that in - you guessed it - the little smile he gives as he sits on his bed and watches Rin sleep. What has most likely been a hectic day has come to an end, and Haru is left with a small moment of quiet. And what he does rather than trying to rest or even sigh tiredly is watch Rin, who is soundly asleep, and smile. Because it’s rewarding.
It’s rewarding to have Rin there. It’s rewarding to spend time with him. Their little arguments, eating together, everything was rewarding to Haru.
It’s no wonder Haru wants to lengthen their time together by joining him in his morning run I mean jesus
Sousuke kept his head down, following the sight of Haru’s footsteps.
“Don’t you need to go home?”
He adjusted his bag strap, keeping the weight balanced on his shoulder.
Haru took off sprinting, trying to lose Sousuke down the block. Luckily Haru ran like he was stuck in glue. And Sousuke was a pretty fast runner. He started a slow jog, keeping the other in his sight until the first corner. Sousuke was a bit worried after that, but then he saw the blue of Haru’s swim bag through the window of a coffee shop. He darted in, accidentally bumping into his teammate due to the limited space.
