Hello, could I request a scenario of Dazai comforting his s/o who usually tries to put up a tough front but she completely breaks down in front of him all of sudden? I've been feeling kinda down lately and I always have a hard time pouring out my feelings, so this would really cheer me up. ;;; Thank you so much!
Hey nonnie! I have a really hard time processing emotions, too. I only ever break down when I’m alone and half the time I don’t even know what I’m upset and I enjoy pushing my emotions down so much that i don’t even recognize them half the time…It kind of sucks. If you ever need to talk, I’m here! Sometimes someone validating you is all you need. <3
You were known as the power couple. You and Dazai took the world by storm, being known as the duo that terrified the enemies of the Armed Detective Agency and before that, the Port Mafia. Neither of you ever showed weakness, especially you. The world would have to burn before you allowed yourself to fall.
And on this one particular day, the world must have burned, for you were on edge more than ever. One little nudge and you’d fall.
“_____-san?” Atsushi pulled you out of your daze. “Are you okay?”
“Yeah,” you said with a sigh and a forced smile. “I’m fine. Thanks, Atsushi-kun.”
The entire day at work, you felt like you were going to explode. But of course, you didn’t let yourself show it.
For others, it seemed like hiding your emotions was the hard part. But in reality, it was showing them that was hard. Hiding them became so habitual that even when you felt like you wanted to scream and explode from hiding so much, you still couldn’t express them.
So when you finally got home, you were ready to collapse on your bed, turn on the tv and eat ice cream until you fell asleep.
But when you got home, the ice cream was no longer where you expected it to be. You slammed the door shut and let out a scream, not thinking that anyone was home.
“_____?!” Dazai came running out of his room over to you.
You quickly composed yourself and forced a smile.
“What happened?! Are you okay?!” Dazai’s eyes were wide with fear.
How in the hell do I explain this…
“Y-Yeah,” you said, hoping that he wouldn’t push you any further.
“_____…,” he moved closer to you, grabbing your shoulders gently. “Talk to me.”
You looked down, shaking your head. “I-I told you…I’m…fine…”
You had to bite down on your lip to keep yourself from breaking down.
Dazai pulled you in for a hug, able to tell that you were near the edge. “You don’t have to pretend around me, love…I know how lonely it can get, but I’m here, love…”
He was whispering directly into your ear. And it was enough.
You collapsed into him and gripped at his shirt, the tears beginning to flow down your cheeks. You sobbed into Dazai’s shirt as he pulled you into a tighter hug. The whole time, he was stroking your hair with his hand.
“I’ll always be here.”
