Halloween Challenge: Trick or Drabble

We've been a little inactive lately because stuff happened but we're back now with our annual

Halloween: Trick or Drabble Challenge!!


step one: people who want to will set up "houses" by commenting on this Trick or Drabble post with their usernames.

You have the option of creating a candy bowl with options of candy that people can select from. For example, if I were to set up a candy bowl, I would do it in the following way:
kira_shadow's: candy bowl:
-Kisumai
-MSM
-ABC-Z
-Assorted Kanju
-Assorted Juniors
-... etc

You don't need one of those, though, if you're willing to write whatever, just say so.

If you have a limited time, say so up front (i.e. "I can only give out 10 drabbles!) because we would rather you participate a little rather than not at all. But we'll leave this go for 2 weeks so people have plenty of time. Even if you've never written for us before, that's okay! This is a party! everybody is welcome to try.

step two: members request a drabble simply by commenting on the user they want with "Trick or Drabble!"

If the user has a candy bowl you can request something from it! If you want something specific that they didn't list, or if the user doesn't have a candy bowl, by all means ask for it, but the Treater is under no obligation to fill your request! You can also ask to be surprised! You don't need to know the person to comment on their "house" and you can comment to as many or as few houses as you feel comfortable!

step three: the original commenter will reply with a treat!

I'm suspending the usual 100-word rule for this challenge. You can give out tootsie rolls (sentence fics) or king-sized candy bars(longer drabbles), so that anybody who wants to can play. This is just a fun way for us to participate as a community. Of course if you want to write 100 words, go right for it!

And if you're up for it, make your candy Halloween flavored! But if you'd rather not, don't feel bound by it. You can decide how much/little you want to get into it!

Thanks to moonspoken for letting us borrow her idea, and if you have any questions go ahead and ask. Pimp it out so we get as many people playing as possible for the next two weeks!

Uh...not sure if this was what you wanted ._. *fail*


There, I fixed it

When Iida walked into his mother’s dance class that day, he didn’t expect to see an old, familiar face there.

“Iida-kun!” Senga Kento was beaming at him and hopped over to greet him. “I didn’t know you’d be in today! Your mother didn’t know whether you would be. How are you?”

The other still had that contagious smile and gentle expression on his face but Iida noticed a few subtle changes. It made him realize that Senga Kento, the ‘baby’ of their group back then, was no longer, well, a baby. Senga had grown up and Iida had not been there to witness it.

There was more depth to the other’s eyes now. They had seen more ever since they had parted ways and Senga had experienced new things and grown by doing so.

Apart from that more invisible change, the other’s body had changed considerably as well. Senga’s body had gotten toned and more muscular, from dancing and working out no doubt. The shy, kind of scrawny kid with a Nagoya dialect had grown into a fine young man (who occasionally still spoke in the Nagoya dialect).

“I’m good,” Iida replied simply. “Living life.” He smiled. “I doubt it’s as exciting as yours, though. Congratulations on having reached your, well, intermediate goal? I listened to the CDs and I see you and the others on TV sometimes, too.”

Senga smiled, “Thanks.” Then he pouted a bit, “You could keep in touch, you know? I’m sure the others would be happy to hear from you. Especially Yokoo-san.”

Iida snorted softly, “Yokoo-san?”

“Ah, well, that’s a long story,” Senga laughed. “It’s one of his new nicknames.”

“I see,” Iida’s expression turned a little sad. “I see,” he said again.

When Senga shifted a little bit on his feet, Iida’s eyes caught something at the back of the other’s neck. “Senga, is that what I think it is?”

Senga’s hand flew to the spot Iida was looking at and he laughed sheepishly. “Ah, here goes Nika’s theory of people not noticing that.”

“You and Nika-chan?” Iida blinked. “Still?”

A fond smile appeared on Senga’s face, “Always.” His smile turned brighter still. “It’s kind of what you and Yokoo-san had. It’s just there. It was there from the moment we met and it never went away. At least, it hasn’t until now and I hope it never will.”

He laughed softly, “You should have seen Nika-chan when he was trying to confess to me. I wonder if Yokoo-san was awkward like that, too? Although I guess the stuttering and stumbling over his words would have been there regardless. Considering it’s Yokoo-san.” Senga snickered.

“Cherish it,” Iida smiled and tried to hide the pain in his chest that seemed to have started clawing at him at the other’s words. “It’s a very precious thing.”

Senga looked at Iida and then checked the clock. “Ah, I have to go soon.” He pulled something out of his pocket and put it into Iida’s hand. “Use it. Or I’ll be mad.” He gave his former group mate a hug and another smile before he went to grab his bags and left.

Iida stared after Senga for a moment before he looked at whatever the other had given him.

It was a piece of paper with a mobile phone number written on it along with a name and the message ‘He doesn’t have work tonight’.

Closing his fingers around the paper, Iida smiled softly to himself. Yeah. Their baby had grown up. He was a better adult than Iida was really.

Looking over to his mother, Iida signalled that he was going to use a different room and then left. The adjacent dance studio was dark and empty. Iida locked the door behind himself and went to lean against the mirrored wall. He looked outside at the dark sky and then took a deep breath before he reached into his pocket and pulled out his phone.

Typing the numbers in seemed to take forever and the dial tone seemed to go on endlessly as well but then Iida felt how his heart started to race when the line connected.

“Hello?”

“Watta. It’s me.”

OMAKE:

Nikaido was waiting at the corner of the street, arms crossed and carrying a bag from the convenience store. He looked up when he heard footsteps.

“You’re late, Kenpi!”

“Sorry! I had an errand to run,” Senga smiled and then hugged his friend, almost throwing Nikaido off-balance.

“Oi!” Nikaido looked at his boyfriend and blinked. “What’s gotten you so excited?”

Senga just hugged Nikaido closer. “Ah, nothing much. Just you.”

Snorting softly, Nikaido wrapped an arm back around the other but then he broke into a smile as well. “Just you makes me happy, too. Let’s go home to your place, alright?”

“Let’s go! I’ll cook us dinner,” Senga smiled.

“Awesome~” Nikaido grinned and the two of them made their way down the street.
