Pairing: Very slight hints between the trio and of Masaomi/Izaya
Summary: The trio eat lunch on the rooftop like always only this time Masaomi is eating a special treat.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Durarara.
“What the heck are you doing?”
Masaomi Kida sat on a bench on top of the school rooftop, casually plucking cherries off their stems.
“I’m eating cherries.”
Mikado’s eyebrow twitched slightly. “I can see that, but why cherries?”
“I don’t know, because I like them and don’t get them often?” Masaomi wondered why Mikado even cared until he saw a slight blush on his cheeks. He had no idea that Mikado seemed to have a bit of a perverted mind.
That’s when Anri’s presence came in to view.
“Oh Anri! Come and sit next to me!”
Anri’s face looked nervous as she looked between Mikado and Masaomi but she chose to take a seat anyway.
“Come on Mikado, sit down and eat your lunch already. If you want I can share my cherries.”
Mikado’s blush got even bigger. “Uh, no thanks. I don’t like cherries.”
Masaomi smirked. He was just too easy. “Aw, well what about you Anri?”
Anri looked surprised when the attention was suddenly turned to her.
“Eh, uh- I never had a cherry before.”
Masaomi looked at Mikado when she said this. It was obvious they were thinking the same thing. That’s just so cute.
“Well then, try one!” He handed it to her, holding on to the stem.
“Thank you.” She took it and started to put the whole thing in her mouth.
“Ah, no wait!” Both Masaomi and Mikado said at the same time, but it was already too late.
Anri’s face made a funny expression as she spit it out.
“How are you supposed to eat that?”
Masaomi started to laugh. “You can’t eat the stem, just the round part.”
“Oh.” Anri’s face turned away slightly to hide her embarrassment.
“So?” Masaomi asked. “What did you think?”
“It was very tasty, thank you.”
Masaomi’s face puffed up at Mikado as if he had won some sort of competition. Mikado just rolled his eyes at his best friend’s antics.
“Oh yeah, you might not be able to eat the stems but there is something else you can do with them.”
At this, both of them turned to look at Masaomi with curiosity.
“It’s sort of a game where you see if you can tie the stem in a knot just using your tongue.”
Mikado laughed. “That sounds stupid. Why would you want to do something like that?”
“Oh” Masaomi’s eyebrow twitched up. “You don’t know?”
Mikado shook his head back and forth as he started to get a bad feeling.
“It just means you are good at kissing if you can do it.”
Right away Mikado’s face turned red.
Masaomi turned his attention to Anri at this point. “Thing is, I already have a hard time with it, so perhaps I need to practice?”
Anri blinked at him. “Practice tying it?”
“Actually, I was thinking something better.” He leaned in closer to Anri.
Anri inched away not sure what to do with this situation.
That’s when Mikado stepped in between them. “Hell no.” He had his hands spread apart as he protected Anri’s lips.
Masaomi noticed just how close that made them though. “Oh? Well if not her perhaps I should practice on you?”
“Wh-what?” Mikado’s face was now beet red as he fell back on Anri and covered his mouth.
Masaomi stated to laugh really hard. “I’m just teasing! Just a silly joke.”
“Masaomi! That wasn’t very nice!”
Masaomi just kept laughing as he watched his two best friends try to compose themselves until a bad memory came crashing down.
It was back when he was still the leader of the yellow scarves, not to long after he had met Izaya. He had been eating cherries when Izaya told him the exact same thing, only he wasn’t just kidding, and he had actually kissed him. Then he walked away as if they had just had a simple conversation. He wished he had been joking just as he was wit Mikado, but Izaya was all sorts of different and unpredictable.
“Um, Kida-kun are you okay?”
Masaomi came back to reality when he heard Anri’s soft spoken voice. He realized he must have had a bad expression on his face.
“I’m just great!”
They gave him a look as if they were still concerned.
“I think I have just decided I hate cherries though.”
Mikado and Anri looked at each other and decided it was probably best left alone.
The rest of the time was spent eating lunch as Masaomi talked animatedly towards them, teasing Mikado with Anri like usual.
It wouldn’t be long before the two of them completely forgot about his slight change in mood.
