“Beg pardon?” M/F said with a laugh, “I thought I heard you say ‘boyfriend’.”
“She did.” Kuroo said with a lopsided cheeky smile, as he pulled up beside you.
“I—, Wait…. Ok, hold on, just—.”
Your friend stood there, pressing her fingers to her temple and squeezing her eyes shut as she tried to comprehend what the fuck was going on.
“She knows about the whole ‘me taking your picture’ thing.” You said quickly to Kuroo while you waited for M/F to speak.
“Yeah, I remember seeing her with you when you took it.” He replied to you.
“How? Just… How?” M/F asked suddenly as she opened her eyes and looked at you.
“I got this one, babe.” Kuroo said to you as he smirked down at you then looked at your friend. “Ok so, I was playing volleyball, she walks in, her friends ask why I dumped her, we go outside, shake hands, and hey presto, now I got a girlfriend.” He said, slinging his arm across your shoulders and pulling your into his side.
Your friend just stood there with a full on, runtime error, look on her face.
“What he said.” You said bluntly, pointing up at him.
“Well said, girlfriend.” He said with a smirk as he held a fist out for you to bump it with yours, which you did.
“Woah, woah, woah, time out.” M/F said as she made a T shape with her hands. “This needs more explaining, let’s walk and talk.”
You all fell in step together as you headed out of the gate, Kuroo on one wing, you in the middle and M/F on the other side.
“Ok so I’ll start.” M/F said as she looked across to Kuroo. “Y/N and I were in the toilets when Liisa, or bitch 1, as I now like to call her, and Nora, bitch 2, came into the bathroom and were talking about how they didn’t believe that Y/N and you were dating, which you weren’t at this point, and talking about how they were going to expose her.”
“Sounds about right.” Kuroo remarked.
“And so then,” you piped up, looking up at Kuroo, “I went back to the classroom and told them you and I had broken up but they insisted on taking me to the gym to find out ‘why’ you had dumped me… I’m pretty sure they just wanted to expose me.” You added with a grimace as you looked across to M/F.
“That’s where I come in.” Kuroo said as he smiled across at the two of you. “I saw these three girls walk in, this cutie here, in the middle.” He nudged you in the arm.
You looked away and bit the inside of your lip.
“And I immediately recognized the two either side of her as the school snobs. They think they’re hot shit but they’re not.” He said bluntly. “Then, when I took a better look at Y/N, I recognized her as the girl who took my picture the other day.”
You chuckled nervously.
“Uh, yep.” You said stupidly, “that’s me.”
“So, I knew something was up.” He said with a smirk. “That Liisa bitch had this smug look on her face and I wanted to take her down a peg or two.” He replied with an creepy grin. “So I called Y/N outside and when she told me what was going on I immediately jumped at the idea.”
“Which I am extremely grateful for, might I add.” You said with a relieved sigh.
“And here we are.” He added, “fake dating to rub it in Liisa and Nora’s faces.”
“Well you’re a saint, Kuroo.” M/F said gratefully, “this is the best possible outcome for Y/N.”
“Well…. we’ll see about that.” Kuroo said mischievously as he gave you a sly look.
“I’m not even going to ask what he means by that.” You thought as you glanced at him from the corner of your eye.
You kept chatting as you all walked, then as you came to the crossroads your friend turned off to head for her home.
“See you both tomorrow.” She said with a smile as she turned and left.
“Uh, well umm, I’ll see you tomorrow then, yeah?” You said to Kuroo as you turned to head down the street to your house.
“Hey, wait up, I gotta walk you home.” He said.
“No, no it’s fine, I can get home by myself.” You replied.
“What kinda boyfriend would I be if I didn’t walk you all the way to your house.” He said as he fell back in step with you.
“Umm well, I wouldn’t know because I’ve never had a boyfriend before so….” you replied sheepishly.
“You haven’t?” He asked with a surprised look on his face, “hmmm, interesting.”
“What’s interesting about that?” You asked, furrowing your brow curiously.
“So you’ve never kissed anyone?” He asked.
“Nope.” You replied, shaking your head.
“Held hands?” He asked.
“That’s another nope.” You replied.
“Never had sex then?” He asked in a provocative tone.
You dropped your head with embarrassment.
“Well of course not!” You yelped, flinging your head to look up at him, “if I haven’t held hands then of course I haven’t… haven’t… Uh….”
“Sex.” He said bluntly.
Your form prickled furiously with embarrassment.
“D-Do you have to say it so bluntly???” You squeaked.
He let out a loud laugh.
“See? this is awesome because I can mess with you.” He said with a cheeky smirk.
“Well what about you then? Have you had a girlfriend before?” You asked defiantly.
“Let’s just say I’m… experienced.” He said with a low, seductive voice, as his hazel eyes pierced through you, snapping your heart rate up to double time.
You swallowed thickly and looked away.
“O-Oh ok… umm, cool.” You stammered, completely flustered by his response. “Umm well, this is my place so BYE!” You said quickly as you turned and speed-walked up the path to your front door.
Kuroo chuckled to himself as he watched you go.
“This is going to be fun to mess with her, she’s too innocent.”
“PA! I got a boyfriend!” You called as you got into the house.
“And I got a girlfriend!” You heard him call back.
“Wait, what? You did??” You asked curiously as you followed the sound of his voice and walked into the living room. “Who??”
“Ms Marple from bingo night!” He replied in his elderly voice as he beamed at you from his comfy armchair, his eyes crinkling at the edges. “And what about you, love?”
“Umm his name is Kuroo…. Tet….Tet??”
“KUROO TIT?” Your Pa asked in a loud voice.
“God, Pa. No.” You laughed, “I think it’s Tetsuro??”
“You don’t know his name?” Your Pa asked with a laugh, “love, I have the memory of a metal strainer and even I can remember Ms Marple’s name.”
“It’s a long story grandpa.” You said with a small sigh and smile.
“We should go on a double date!” Your Pa said with innocent excitement dancing in his watery elderly eyes. “Invite him over and I’ll make some hash cookies!”
“PA! NO!” You said quickly.
