Kuroo held you and let you cry for a bit, not wanting to rush you in any way as you grappled with your emotions.
“You ok?” He finally asked softly as he put his finger under your chin and tilted your face up to his.
“This whole thing is fucked.” You sobbed. “I’m going to jump off a roof.”
“It’s not that bad, ok?” He said softly, “if you hadn’t created such a strange situation then we would never have met, true- getting involved with Liisa and Nora was something you could have done without, but you’ve learned things along the way so let’s focus on the positives here.” He stated calmly, his cat like yellow irises glinting in the slithers of light that filtered through the high gym windows.
“Do you do pep talks often?” You asked with a heavy sniff, allowing him to wipe your tears away.
“I’m the captain of a volleyball team.” He deadpanned, “what do you think?”
“Oh.” You said softly, “well… you’re good at it.” You added. “But what now. I can’t show my face at this school ever again.”
Kuroo stared down at you for a minute then spoke quite frankly.
“I don’t know M/F very well but I can tell she’s a ride or die type and she will defend you till the bitter end.” He commented in a very authoritative voice. “As I was taking you away she was heading right into the heat of it. She’s probably tearing shreds off them right now.”
“Umm, yeah, she can get pretty worked up about things.” You said with a small chuckle, “don’t get on her bad side.”
“Ahh youth.” He smirked with an amused chortle, “always ready for a fight.”
“Youth? Dude. You’re like… 18?” You deadpanned.
“If I’m older than you- even if it’s by a day- then you’re Kouhai and I’m your Senpai.” He said with a smirk then lowered his head, giving you a seductive look from the eye that wasn’t covered with his fringe. “So you’d better behave for your Senpai.”
“Stop it you weirdo.” You said quickly, pushing out of his embrace and hiding your blushing face with your arms.
“It’s weirdo-Senpai, to you.” He said with playful indignation.
“Creeper.” You wailed as you turned to speed walk across the gym.
“You can’t escape me, Short Stack.” He leered.
“Help!” You called playfully, “there’s a 70 year old impersonating a teenager and he’s after me.”
“Don’t make me get my walking stick.” Kuroo called as he started to stalk after you.
While you and Kuroo were wasting time, M/F had indeed marched straight into the fire, guns blazing and smoke billowing from her nose as she found Liisa and Nora, who were casually chilling in one of the busiest hallways in the school.
“HEY!” M/F shouted from the other end of the hallway, calling everyone’s attention as she locked onto her two targets and stalked towards them, “imagine being such dickweeds you bully someone for no fucking reason whatsoever.” Her call, creating absolute silence in the hall.
“Excuse me?” Liisa replied with bitchy indignation as she looked up and saw M/F was talking directly to her.
“You heard me. You’re the, fucking, human equivalent of a participation award.” M/F yelled, balling her fists up as she got closer. “You need more fucking chlorine in your gene pool, bitch.” She snapped, rearing her hand back and letting it go, punching Liisa full force in the face once she was within striking range.
Liisa screamed as she fell backwards and Nora jumped at M/F but your friend was so pumped up on adrenaline that it didn’t even faze her. She wasn’t about to lose to anyone and so dropped Nora like a sack of potatoes too.
“Fuck the two of you, lowlifes,” she yelled as she stood over them, ready to throw hands again, “watch your backs, you hear me? If I even so much as smell you within 100 yards of Y/N I’ll smack you so hard not even your own mother will be able to recognize you.”
“You think you’re so tough? Do you know who I am?” Liisa spat with flustered embarrassment.
“Bitch? What kind of stupid ass comment was that? I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out a smarter statement than that.” M/F retorted in a sassy, condescending tone.
A flurry of affirmative noises mixed with snorts and expletives ricocheted down the hall amongst the bystanders and M/F knew she immediately had the crowd on side.
“Do you know what these two visible farts did?” M/F called out down the hall as she turned to address the hallway of onlookers. “They put my friend’s number up on the message board, stating that she was looking to do sexual favors for people, all because she said she didn’t want to be friends with THEM.” She said, pointing to Liisa and Nora.
“I saw that ad.” One person called out from halfway down the hall, “what a dick move.”
“Yeah?” Another replied, “I was in the classroom when Y/N said she didn’t want to be friends with them anymore and they were real bitches about it.”
“I’ve honestly never liked either of them.” Another yelled- with more people chipping in their two cents from various parts of the hall.
“You see?” M/F said haughtily as she turned back and stared down at them as she crossed her arms across her chest with pride. “You have no idea what I’m capable of.”
Liisa paled and Nora’s bottom lip started to quiver as they both pulled themselves up off the ground and slunk away, their disappearing forms being followed by choruses of booing and hissing.
“Thank you, guys.” M/F said with relief as she turned to those closest to her.
“Hey man, that was ballsy, mad respect to you.” One girl said.
“You’re really amazing, Y/N is so lucky to have you as a friend.” A guy on her other side said.
“I hope she’s ok though?” M/F replied sadly, she was really down when she got those disturbing calls.”
“Where is she? I’ll come and help cheer her up? Yet another girl said with a gentle smile.
“She’s with Kuroo now.” M/F replied.
“Kuroo? As in volleyball captain, Kuroo?”
“Yeah they’re uh… kinda… dating?” M/F said sheepishly.
“Oh my god? Imagine getting on the wrong side of Kuroo by picking on his girlfriend! Those girls better run and hide. Wait till I tell my friend about this!” One more girl said as she turned and sprinted off down the hall.
“Best I go find Y/N and tell her about what’s happened.” M/F said sheepishly as she excused herself from the crowds of sudden avid supporters.
“Tell her we’re all here for her.” A few called out, “we won’t let anything else happen to her!”
“Thank you.” M/F called back over her shoulder as she jogged off to find you.
