feeling strangely: silly
wired to: Q Lazarus - Goodbye Horses

So I have three drabbles to write for you lovely people who made codes for the fanlisting - I am most appreciative. ♥

Here's the first one, written for Kat, who shares my love of captain pants. :D The prompt was, of course, Operation Captain Pants.

Kite’s mood was catching, it seemed. He’d passed much of the day in sullen, incommunicative solitude and with his having shown no indication that he intended to lighten up before practice, the team was braced for the worst. Kite was a slave-driver on his very best days. On a day like today, there was no telling what limits he’d push – what manner of performance he would exact.

Facing the window, Chinen gazed longingly in the direction of the sea. He didn’t care about tennis – the waves were calling him – but he cared about Kite and it was for that reason alone that he’d committed himself to the team.

“Hey, Lurch,” Kai said, throwing his wadded up socks at Chinen’s back and flashing Rin a little smile when they bounced off of him to land just at his feet. Chinen didn’t turn around. “You got your board?”

Tanishi sat down heavily and rummaged through his duffle for the bag of carrot sticks that Kite had given him that morning.

‘If you’re going to snack, Tanishi-kun, snack on these,’ he’d said. Tanishi had not seen fit to argue. When he’d taken them gingerly, peering at the plastic bag that boasted his name in Kite’s careful, precise calligraphy, Kite had nodded his satisfaction.

‘You’ll like them. Tell your mother to start packing them in your bento.’

Tanishi crunched loudly, thinking that he’d be better able to harbor ill-feelings toward his captain if the carrots weren’t so surprisingly enjoyable. He watched Chinen expectantly. His teammate wanted the ocean; Tanishi could tell.

“No,” Chinen finally said. “It’s at home.”

Kai groaned, stepping over Tanishi’s legs and shoving him when he passed. Tanishi scowled, the effect quite ruined by the carrot stick clamped between his lips. Kai thumbed his nose at him.

“Aw, come oooon,” he whined, elbowing Chinen as he joined him at the window. “Who’m I gonna go surfing with if you don’t go?”

Shrugging lightly, Chinen turned away from the window and sat down on the bench to lace up his trainers. “Go with Rin-chan.”

“Rin sucks! I’m constantly having to fish him out of the water!”

“Hey!” Rin objected, kneeling on the bench and bracing his weight on Tanishi, who grunted, but otherwise remained silent. “Screw you, Yuujiroh! I’m as good as you are!”

“You wish,” Kai returned, stripping off his shirt and throwing it at Aragaki.

Thoughtfully plucking the shirt off of his partner’s head, Shiranui folded it crisply and lay it on the bench.

Kite stood, then, smoothing down the front of his practice jersey and surveying the room with a critical eye. “I’m going to speak to the advisor about our new coach.”

When no one answered, he straightened his shoulders and turned toward the door. “Have your asses on the court in ten. I don’t want practice running late today.”

Chinen ducked his head to hide his smile and Kai whooped triumphantly.

“Yes! It’s still on!”

When the door closed softly behind Kite, Rin edged closer to Kite’s bag and poked it with the tip of one finger.

Tanishi craned his neck and – around a mouthful of carrot – said, “What’re you doin’?”

Meeting Kai’s gaze over Tanishi’s head, Rin smiled mischievously. “Ever wonder what he keeps in here?”

Expression serious, Chinen stood, shaking one foot to help his sock slide into a more casual slouch. “Leave that alone.”

Hopping over the bench to join Rin for a bit of gleeful hand-wringing over Kite’s bag, Kai stuck his tongue out at Chinen. “Oh, cram it, Hiroshi. Like you never wondered.”

Aragaki spoke up softly, “I haven’t.”

Kai snorted. “Only because it’s not Kite’s bag you want to sniff around in.”

Aragaki blushed scarlet. Shiranui followed suit.

Chewing his bottom lip, Rin glanced around almost nervously as he began to ease the zipper open. “Tell me if you see him coming, Hiroshi.”

Chinen frowned. “No. I hope he catches you.”

“That’s not very nice,” Kai said, straddling the bench and gripping the end of Kite’s duffle. “Oh, man, I’m totally stealing his pants.”

Eyes wide, Rin looked up. “His captain pants? Are you serious?”

“Sure I’m serious. What’s the big deal?”

“He’ll kill you; that’s the big deal.”

Rolling his eyes, Kai slapped Rin’s hands away and unzipped the bag himself. “Gimme a break, Rinrin. Homocide over a pair of goofy, two-toned pants? I don’t think so.”

Tanishi shook his head, twisting his empty bag of carrots nervously. “I don’t know, Kai. You know they still haven’t found that cousin of his who disappeared last year.”

Still for only a moment, Kai said, “He drowned, though, remember? Kite told us all about it.”

“Yeah,” Tanishi said. “Kite told us all about it. And he didn’t even bat an eyelash when he told us. Do you remember that?”

“Well,” Kai hedged, unable to hide his sudden apprehension. “He doesn’t express emotions easily, you know. He’s a very private guy.”

Tanishi just shrugged. “Your funeral.”

Rin’s sudden giggle distracted the other players and all eyes were on him when he reached into the bag and withdrew a dog-eared, pocket-sized book. “Oh, shit, Yuujiroh – look at this.”

Head cocked, Kai reached for the book and was silent while he read the title. After a moment, he began to giggle in a fair imitation of Rin. “Oh, god, check it out, you guys.”

Despite the group’s collective desire to avoid earning Kite’s ire, their curiosity was such that they couldn’t resist and when Kai held the book up to allow the others to read, an awkward silence descended.

“What in the shit?” Shiranui murmured. “ ‘The Te of Piglet?’”

Clutching the book to his chest, Kai rolled off the bench, cackling, before he began to read again. “Piglet herein demonstrates a very important principle of Taoism: the Te – a Chinese word meaning virtue - of the small.”

Wiping away tears, Rin pulled Kite’s purple and white pants from inside the bag and held them up. “Virtue of the small, eh? Goes pretty good with his tiny little waist, dontcha think?”

At that point, Tanishi ducked his head and snorted his amusement as Aragaki and Shiranui hurried outside – they had no intention of finding themselves on the captain’s shit list. And Kai’s latest escapade – this disrespectful violation of Kite’s privacy – was serious business.

“What else is in there?” Kai demanded, rolling to all fours and kneeling next to the bench. “Please tell me he keeps his diary and his purple glitter pens in there, too.”

Chinen reached over then, snatching Kite’s pants out of Rin’s grip and folding them again. “C’mon, you guys. Knock it off.”

“No,” Rin answered, slowly withdrawing a handful of envelopes in one hand and a pair of red boxer briefs in the other. “But there’s…this.”

“Letters,” he went on. “From – oh man, you’re not going to believe this – Seigaku’s Tezuka Kunimitsu.”

“They’re written in purple gel pen,” Tanishi observed neutrally. “I guess they have a lot in common, after all.”

Chinen reached over to grab Kite’s underwear, but Rin pulled his hand back to prevent him from getting the letters, too.

“He’s going to be back soon,” Chinen said, voice low and bordering on irritation. “Put his things away and let’s get a move on.”

“Aww,” Kai teased. “What’s the matter, Hiro-chan? You didn’t know Kite was pen pals with the Ice Maiden?”

Lips parted to offer a retort, Chinen paled when the door opened again and Kite stood – not quite filling the doorway, but appearing forbidding enough. He stood, speechless and clutching Kite’s pants and underwear while Rin and Kai hurriedly shoved their ill-gotten gains back into the bag and took a step back.

“Chinen,” Kite began, voice eerily quiet. “What do you think you’re doing?”

Tanishi hunched his shoulders in an attempt to become invisible. Chinen merely swallowed hard while he cast about for a suitable excuse.

Rin and Kai scooped up their rackets and edged toward the door.

“Uh…we’ll meet you outside,” Rin said, ducking out first and leaving Kai to pull the door closed.

Tanishi rubbed his belly; he was getting a stomachache. He suspected that today would not end well.

The other two are coming. :D Bear with me.

Awww, poor Chinen. XD I can see him being just SO pissed at Rin and Kai for the rest of eternity.

Loved the image of Tanishi snacking on carrot sticks.

And Heee! Letters from Tezuka in purple!

Nooo! Chichu is in trouble! ;___;

*roffle* Ice maiden...where does Tezuka get his glitter pens and please tell me Atobe and Mizuki have matching sets.

Posted by: land of godless sodomites (pixxers)

Kite will forgive him. Chinen is the best sex on the team.

Tezuka's pens were actually a gift from Atobe, who bought them when he was out shopping with Mizuki. Of course they have matching sets.

Speaking of Ice Maiden, I'm working on Cables this weekend. I've missed it so.

You're evil, Pix... Poor Chinen and Ice Maiden... his secret is exposed now XD

Aw, Maye. ♥ You know I love these boys.

I felt that Chinen should just grab Kite and smooch him, but he said no.

Blood & Soul Forever

You and I have had this talk about feeding me new loves before. You never learn your lesson, do you? I loved it of course. *snuggles you and Kite both* I really must learn more about Higa, since the only 3 names I know are Kite, Rin, and Chinen.

The part with the cousin was brillant! Ok, the entire drabble was brilliant! I'll have to start reading more Higa fics of yours; they're as satisfying to read as your Taka/Fuji fic :D

Posted at: August 22nd, 2007 06:43 pm (UTC)

♥ Sankyuu. As much as I love TakaFuji, Higa (or, rather, Kite/Tezuka) owns me.

Glad you liked!

Oh so cute! You write the Higa boys so well! Rin and Kai are so mean! They left Chinen to take all the blame! *snuggles Chinen*

>_> I feel bad for Kite's cousin though. Did he try to steal his captain pants as well?

Posted by: land of godless sodomites (pixxers)

Rin and Kai are hellions. ♥

And Kite's cousin had a fishing accident. Kite was at a poetry reading when it happened.
