Thank you for 9,000 followers! Here’s a ficlet about Mari being protective of her little brother.
“Hopefully you can help me,” said the man on the phone with the funny accent. “My name is Victor Nikiforov, and I’m looking for Yuuri Katsuki. He said his family owns a hot springs resort, so I looked up the phone number on the internet. Can you tell me if I have the right place?”
Mari almost hung up immediately without offering a response. Ever since Yuuri had inadvertently become a viral video star after performing one of Victor Nikiforov’s routines, the onsen had gotten more than a few prank calls. One person had pretended to be a reporter but had instead turned out to be one of Victor’s crazy fans. Apparently this new caller wanted Mari to believe he was Victor Nikiforov himself.
“Yuuri’s my brother,” she said, a little heat in her tone.
“Oh, great!” the prankster said. “Could I speak with him please?”
Mari rolled her eyes. Was that supposed to be a real Russian accent? This guy’s impression of Victor was pathetic.
