Coffee Drabble: Like-Like
Here it is, y’all. My first Ishimondo (Ishimaru Kiyotaka/Oowada Mondo from Dangan Ropa). I’m so happy to have learned about this fine, fine ship (thank you, @unhealthydoctors for the explanation and introduction!), even if the tragedy involved kind of killed my heart a bit. This is a Non-Despair AU, so basically the boys are in regular, good ol’ high school. Thank you so much for the coffee, @derpyflowergarden!

It’s not too late to drop a donation and request your own coffee-related drabble. Full details are over on this post. I’ll be doing this all through the month of June!
Mondo’s bike roared up the street before pulling up to the curb in front of the coffeeshop, prompting heads to turn in his direction as he stepped off. Despite the stoic expression on his face, he felt like he wanted to bend over and stick his head between his legs. His stomach had been hurting all morning, and he started to wonder if this was the best place to ask Ishimaru to meet him.
Ya already set this in motion, man. Don’t puss out now.
He walked inside, glancing around as the smell of coffee and baked goods slapped him in the face. Part of him hoped maybe that he had gotten here too early, that maybe Ishimaru wouldn’t show, that he could just run out of here and –
“Good morning, kyoudai!”
Mondo jumped and spun around to find Ishimaru, dressed in his school uniform (clean and pressed and pristine, practically blinding in how white it was) hailing him down from a table in the corner. His fastidious appearance made him suddenly very aware of the more casual outfit he had picked out: jeans, white shirt, leather jacket. A classic look but not classy.
“Hey!” Mondo practically yelled the greeting, his nerves finally getting the better of him as he walked over. “I figured ya might not get here for a bit longer…we said 10 and it’s only 9:45…”
“You’re one to talk! Imagine my surprise seeing you being early! Very commendable!”
