Yamamoto and Dino showing their dark side to their gf
You could only sit on the pavement in shock as you watched
what was transpiring before you.
There was so much blood… The cries and pleas for mercy were
You had known him only as a baseball addict all your lives.
Even back in high school you had thought he could only love that game so you
had been quite surprised when he confessed to you. Even after you two started
dating you still felt the need to pinch yourself sometimes just to make
yourself believe you weren’t dreaming. But even after ten years he had stayed
by your side and loved you. It was more than you could possibly ask for.
Beautiful, wonderful, sweet Takeshi…
But he had caught that man about to rape you. You were on
your way home from a friend’s house when someone pulled you into a dark
alleyway and started assaulting you. You had managed one scream. One scream was
all it took.
When you saw Takeshi’s face over that man’s shoulder you
felt a mix of relief and shame. Relief that he was there and shame that he had
to see you like this. But then that shame and relief turned into surprise when
his shock melted into something else. Something that made his face look
And then the shock turned to horror as the man who had been
trying to remove your clothes was pulled off you and beaten brutishly.
First Takeshi broke his jaw. Then his nose. Then his teeth.
And then he took hold of the stranger’s head and beat it against the wall over
and over again until it looked as though it would explode. And even when the
body slid down to the ground you saw Takeshi grab hold of an arm and
practically twisted it right off its socket. By the time he was finished it looked
as though the stranger was a mere smear of filth on the pavement.
There was so much blood. So much blood. You couldn’t move. You
couldn’t speak. Your legs were shaking and you didn’t have enough strength to
even run. All you could do was stare with wide eyes as Takeshi’s blood drenched
countenance stared at the man he had killed with such hatred.
“Ta… ke… shi…?”
Your whisper seemed like a slap in the face to him. The
manic rage on his face disappeared as though it had never been there and when
he turned back towards you he was normal again. Concern crossed his face. That in itself was nothing unusual. The
only difference from the norm was… the blood still dripping from his fists.
Seeing the expression on his face also seemed like another
blow. Realizing what you have seen he shook and covered his face with a hand
while the other one fished for his cellphone and blindly made a call.
“Hey, Hayato? Yeah I know it’s late. Can you have clean up
come over? I’ll email you the address.” When he ended the call he turned to you
with a wry, sad, tired smile on his face. It was an expression that you had never seen him make before. It made your
eyes grow impossibly wider. “I think we need to talk.”
You didn’t tell him because you didn’t want to seem weak in
Sure, Dino had power and money, you already knew that. But
you were also fiercely independent and self-made. There was no sense telling
him there was an idiot who kept threatening you to sell your small shop and
moving out. You knew about these thugs. They were goons from the real estate
who had been buying all the land around the area so they could make room for
another condominium. You were not prepared to sell.
You were under so much pressure that you had begun to refuse
Dino’s invitations to join him for dinner. Guilty, you thought about making him
dinner and taking it up to his office. No one was able to notice you since it
seemed the whole building seemed busy today so you took Dino’s personal elevator
that would take you directly up to his office. As soon as the elevator doors
opened, though you were in for the shock of your life.
You were just in time to see Dino shooting a man between the
eyes at point blank range without a single flinch.
The man fell on the floor that was then covered in plastic
wrap along with a bunch of other dead bodies whose hands were still tied behind
themselves. You recognized each and every one. They were all the men who had come to your house to harass you
these past few weeks. And the man who had been shot just now was their Boss.
Dino looked… different. The usually warm brown eyes filled
with laughter were sharp and cold reflecting the glint of the gun’s metal body.
It was Dino but it was not. The sunshine he had always reminded you of looked
more like the glint from the golden statue of a merciless god.
The large lunchbox you were carrying fell from your nerveless
fingers as you stared at him.
When he heard the noise Dino turned. As soon as he saw you
the ruthlessness in his eyes turned into something sad and wry as he brushed
back his hair with the gun still in his hand and sighed.
“Sorry,” you heard him say in a voice that sounded as though
it were made of crushed ice. “You weren’t supposed to see that.”
In Japanese, there are two types of adjectives- the i-adjectives and the na-adjectives. I-adjectives end in the character /い/ and are inflected, meaning the ending changes when making the adjective show tense and/or negativity. Na-adjectives are not inflective, and they follow the same rules as nouns. You will sometimes hear them called “noun-adjectives” or the like. Na-adjectives are always followed by a /だ/ or /です/ when they are at the end of a sentences, but i-adjectives can stand on their own.
When the i-adjective modifies a noun, it directly precedes it. When a na-adjective modifies a noun, it is followed by the character /な/, thus giving it the name “na-adjective”.
たかいほん Ta-ka-i-ho-n Takai (in this context)= expensive ∴ Expensive book.
きれいなほん Ki-re-i-na-ho-n Kirei (in this context)= pretty ∴ Pretty book.
The pattern to describe a noun (eg This book is pretty) is NOUN は ADJECTIVE. However, some adjectives take the particle が, but these adjectives need to be remembered individually as there is no set rule for telling the differences between which adjectives take wa and which adjectives take ga.
A few い-adjectives.
あかるい a-ka-ru-i Light/Cheerful
いい／よい i-i/yo-i Good/ OK
おいしい o-i-shi-i Tasty
おおきい o-o-ki-i Big
ちいさい chi-i-sa-i Small
やすい ya-su-i Cheap
ふるい fu-ru-i Old
いそがしい i-so-ga-shi-i Busy
A few な-adjectives
かんたん ka-n-ta-n Simple
きれい ki-re-i Pretty/Clean
すき su-ki* Like
じょうず jyo-u-zu Skilful
にぎやか ni-gi-ya-ka Lively
*“suki” and “daisuki” do not have the u- pronunciation. They are pronounced “Ski” and “Die-ski”.

So I was thinking of nekoma!yamaguchi and my mind wondered off and what if yamas dad left when he was a toddler and his mom and him were having a tough time and his mom ended up spilling hot coffee on this really cute guy that's divorced but has two kiddos of his own and then ended up hitting it off and start dating and after year he invites them to live with him in Tokyo and about 2 weeks before Yama and his mom move his bullies get worse and that's when tsukki steps in and saves him (1/?)
“Yeah, hey! We’re real sad you won’t be around to carry our bags anymore.”
“We won’t be able to see your lumpy face anymore.”
“Such a shame.”
“You can still carry our bags until then.”
“You’re crying already? Wow!”
Kei stops walking when he sees a group of boys picking on someone just outside the park by the school, and looks on, disinterested until he sees a small boy, who couldn’t be more than five, six years old in tears on the ground. One of the boys is holding a stick, and is angling it in the boy’s direction.
The boy notices him, and locks eyes with him, causing the boys to look over to him and speak with one another. He panics, and does the first thing he can think of.
“…Pathetic.” He says, mustering up a menacing grin.
The boys – including the little boy – seem to deflate, and he thinks he’s done enough, so he turns and books it in the direction of home. Everything else blurs into one, and somehow, the next week, he finds himself being trailed by the six year old – who, was in fact, his age and not six – during their free time in class, and after school, watched the volleyball team practice. Apparently his older step brothers played. Kei had asked why he didn’t join, but the boy – named Tadashi – just shook his head and said something about not wanting to get too connected to the team, so Kei dropped it.
“Hey, Tsukki?..” He’d even been given a nickname. It was endearing.
“Um…” There’s a long enough pause that Kei look up from his book expectantly, to see Tadashi fiddling with his shirt nervously. “I just…really wanna thank you for saving me. Again.”
Kei clucks his tongue. “Don’t say ‘wanna’, it’s ‘want to’.”
Tadashi smiles, looking sad, and Kei’s frown grows. “Of course, but I like Tsukki.”
And the week after that, he’s gone. He doesn’t show up to school, or volleyball, he’s nowhere to be found. Kei doesn’t admit it, but he’s worried. He asks the teachers, and they tell him he was living in Tokyo now. Kei says no, that’s impossible, he would have told him, but the teachers just shake their heads and send him back to his desk.
“Hey! I’m Eiichi, and this is Tetsurou! We’re your new brothers,” Tadashi is slightly alarmed at the two dark haired boys rushing to greet him as soon as he steps foot into the house, and backs into his mother’s legs as she enters. She laughs, hand on his shoulder comfortingly.
“Tadashi dear, don’t be shy, it’s ok; these boys are going to be our new family.”
“I- I know…”
She pushes him forward to the two, and he looks up at them shyly.
“Hi!” One of them – Tetsurou – says softly, approaching him carefully, with one hand outstretched, like he was approaching a scared animal. He gets closer, and pats Tadashi on the head, smiling. He eventually pulls Tadashi into a hug, and Eiichi joins in, causing his mother to coo.
“Hey, Tadashi,” Eiichi mumbles, pulling away from the hug. “You play volleyball?”
“Oi! Tadashi, look out!” Tadashi ducks as a ball flies past his head, and he turns to Tetsurou, who was practicing spikes. “Sorry!”
“Are you sure you guys should be practicing so hard? Karasuno’s about to arrive.”
“Oh, we won’t get tired!” Taketora yells back as he spikes powerfully to the ground. As on cue, Karasuno enters the gym, calling their greetings. Tadashi’s eyes lock onto the blonde standing, looking disinterested, at the back of the group.
“What’s that Tadashi?“ Eiichi appears next to him, slinging a shoulder, and Tadashi tsks, turning to his brother.
“What are you doing here?”
“Wow, don’t want your brother at your first official game as a starter?”
“It’s a practice game,” Tadashi says, rolling his eyes and sliding out from under his brother. “And shouldn’t you be at university right now?”
“Ah, I don’t have class for another…thirty seconds.” Eiichi chuckles, looking at his watch. Tadashi shakes his head, rolling his eyes as Tetsurou calls the team to line up.
“Mom and Ren are going to be pissed when they find out you skipped class again.”
“Ah, it’s fi–”
“Tadashi’s right.” Kenma says, walking past, and Eiichi pouts, making a face.
“Ha.” Tadashi sticks his tongue out as he follows after Kenma, lining up.
Kei sighs, and leans onto the bench.
“Yamaguchi-san!” Kei’s head snaps up to see the tall half Russian kid – Lev, he thinks – jumping excitedly in front of one of the other boys as Nekoma and Karasuno mingles around the gym. “You served really great today!”
“You did,” A dark haired boy says, clapping the other on the back. “You’ve done your older brothers proud, Ta-da-shi!”
Tetsurou jumps on him and noogies him, grinning.
“No way…” There was no way in hell Kuroo Tetsurou was Yamaguchi’s brother.
He stands, and walks towards them as Yaku chases Lev off.
“Hm? Oh, Tsukki, what a nice surprise! Did you want to get some advice from your senpai? Or did you just want to–”
“…Yamaguchi…you used to live in Miyagi, correct?”
Tetsurou and the other dark haired boy look at Kei incredulously, and Tadashi’s eyes widen.
“Y- Yes,” He says, staring at Kei. “Wh- why?..”
“Do you– do you remember, before you moved, anyone by the name Tsukishima Kei, by chance?”
Suddenly Tadashi gasps, covering his mouth. “Tsukki! It’s really you!”
Kei chuckles at the use of his old nickname. “You remember me, then?”
“I– I saw you earlier and I thought you looked familiar, and I– I remembered Karasuno was near our old elementary school, so I thought it was a possibility, but…” Tadashi laughs, and launches himself at Kei, surprising him. “I thought it was just wishful thinking, to see my hero for the first time after just suddenly leaving. And even if it had been you, there was no promise you’d even remember me after all these years.”
Kei smiles to himself as he pulls Tadashi closer. “How could I forget you? You were my only friend, and then you just left.”
Tadashi pulls away quickly, and bows, startling both Kei and the two brothers standing near by. “I’m sorry! I tried to tell you, but I just couldn’t bring myself to! I didn’t think you cared, otherwise I would have gotten your number, I’m sorry–”
“Shut up, Yamaguchi,”
“Ah, sorry, Tsukki!”
“Oi, don’t talk to our brother like that,” In an instant, the boy standing next to Tetsurou is stepping between the two, growling at Kei, who frowns.
“Eiichi-nii, it’s ok! That’s our thing, it’s fine,” Tadashi place his hands calmingly on the elder boy’s – Eiichi’s – shouders and he relaxes, though, he does glare down Kei as Tadashi steps around his brother and smiles up at Kei. “Sorry about him. He’s very–” He whips his head around to glare daggers at Eiichi, as well as Tetsurou, who was following his older brother’s steps, before turning back, smile still on his face. “They’re very protective of their little step brother.”
“Ah, our parents married, so we’re not related by blood, but we love each other all the same,” Tetsurou, who seemed to have recovered quicker than Eiichi from the fear that Tadashi instilled, explains, walking up and slinging an arm around Kei’s shoulders. “Isn’t that right, Tada-chan?”
Tadashi blushes at the use of the old nickname, but nods anyway. “Of course.”
“But that’s not the point,” Eiichi, now recovered as well, says, crossing his arms firmly. “How do you know our little brother?”
“Guys…” Tadashi whines, pouting.
“Now now, let him answer the question, I’m quite curious myself; it’s such a coincidence he knows both of us, Tadashi!” Tetsurou grins smugly at Kei, and he scoffs.
“It’s nothing interesting,” Kei grumbles, pushing Tetsurou’s arm off him. “I saved him from some bullies, and we became friends, is all.”
“So you’re the one we heard about almost non-stop when he first arrived!” Eiichi exclaims, and Tadashi’s face grows even more red. “Man, he would hardly ever shut up about how he had a friend, named Kei, who was so cool and so nice to him even though other people thought he was mean and that he let him call him nicknames– it was adorable, but it was tiring, to some extent!”
“You– talked about me?..”
“All the time,” Kuroo groans, fond smile on his face. “He really liked you back then– don’t know how long that will last now, with the abrasive attitude you have now.”
Kei grumbles, but makes no move to defend himself– instead, Tadashi does. “Tsukki’s about the same as he was in school all those years ago, actually,” He says, tilting his head to the side. “He’s rough, but he just needs a bit of smoothing out.” Kei flushes as Tadashi takes his hand, smiling. “Isn’t that right, Tsu-kki?”
“Oi! How come he gets to call you Tsukki?!”
“Because I don’t like you.”
“If you’re going to be friends with my little brother you’d better!”
“Guys,” As Tadashi separates the boys, Eiichi grins, knowing now that his brother’s hero was back, he and Tetsurou would have to save some of the saving for him.
“Oi, Tetsu. Let’s leave them. They have a lot to catch up on.”
Tetsurou grumbles, but complies, allowing himself to be dragged away by his older brother.
“I’m really sorry about them…” Tadashi laughs nervously, rubbing at his neck.
“I, uh– I’m sorry I left without telling you.”
Kei chuckles. “It’s fine, just– don’t disappear on me again, ok?” He pulls out his phone, and hands it to Tadashi. “Put your number in here, and give me yours so I can put mine in it. We won’t lose touch again, ok?”
Tadashi takes it, blushing, and hands Kei his own. “O- ok…”
They exchange numbers as Tetsurou and Eiichi watch on, smiling fondly.
