“And a nursing home wouldn’t be?” you replied with a raised eyebrow, “listen, thank you- but I’ll do what I think is best for my pa.”
The physiotherapy could tell this was a bit of a touchy subject for you and so decided to drop it and nodded as he picked some papers up off the desk.
“Well, as of tomorrow, your pa will be able to go home.” He lifted the notes up and looked them over. “I’ll sign off on him today.”
“Thanks,” you replied stiffly, giving him a forced smile.
He nodded and you left as soon as you could.
“It looks like pa will be able to come home tomorrow,” you said to Kuroo on the phone later that day as you walked home from the hospital.
‘That’s great” he replied, “but we won’t be able to have sex all over the house any more.”
“We weren’t even doing that in the first place!” you hissed with embarrassment, looking around as you walked.
He chuckled deeply on the other end and your heart skipped a beat in your chest.
“His non-hyena laugh is so fucking sexy. What I wouldn’t give for him to just bent me over the kitchen bench and do that sexy laugh as he ploughed me like a fucking field.”
‘You still there?” his voice asked, cutting your internally monologue in half.
“Yep!” you replied quickly, “still here.”
“Did you want me to be with you when you bring pa home? He might need assistance?” he offered.
“You don’t need an excuse to see me,” you teased, “I know I’m irresistible.”
“You finally see yourself through my eyes. This is progress,” he replied, and you could feel his smile through his words.
You made a weird noise which made him chuckle again.
“Ok,” you said quickly, “I’m gonna go now so I’ll see you tomorrow, ok? Are you at practice?”
“Yep, here with the boys,” he said, then held the phone down to Kenma, “pudding… say hi to Y/N.” His voice sounding distant as he held it from his face.
“Hi Y/N,” Kenma parroted in a very distracted voice.
“Hi Kenma, Kuroo and I are dating now, not sure if he has said anything yet,” you said quickly.
“What?’ you heard Kenma ask, your words dragging his attention away from whatever he was doing- gaming probably.
“Uh, bye,” Kuroo said quickly, talking over Kenma’s next question before the phone call ended.
You chuckled as you turned your home screen off and shook your head, “I’ll leave that one with you now, Kuroo.”
“Kuro, you and Y/N are dating now?” Kenma asked the black haired captain.
“You never told me?”
“I just wanted to make sure we were a sure thing, you know? I didn’t want to say anything then have it fall apart only to have to tell you that it was all off,” Kuroo said, a little blush on his cheeks as he averted his eyes from the smaller player.
“No,” Kenma said in his soft voice as he observed Kuroo’s reaction, “you really like her and you didn’t want us to tease you about it.”
“No?!” Kuroo said quickly, glancing around to see if the others on the team had heard.
“Oh?” Yaku leered as he sidled over, “you and that girl, Y/N, are an actual item now? I thought she was just for fun?”
“Kuroo is whipped!” Another teammate shouted, overhearing from a distance.
“No!” Kuroo replied loudly, crossing his arms across his chest and giving the boys a lopsided grin, “I’m not whipped, and she’s not just for fun. She’s my girl now and if you have a problem with it then let’s duel it out on the court.”
“Nah, you’re totally whipped,” Yaku teased, making sure to stay out of Kuroo’s reach just in case the captain decided to take a swing at him.
Kuroo was about to reply when you sent him a message and your personal message tone rang from his pocket, making him quickly grab for it as Kenma gave him a quizzical look.
“Y/N?” the blond hair dyed player asked.
“Yeah,” Kuroo replied icily, eyes down-reading your message.
“Whipped,” Yaku said with a chuckle, quickly dashing off as Kuroo looked up and glared at him
I’m not whipped!” Kuroo yelled after him, “that’s it. Everyone on the courts NOW we have training to do!”
“Yaku! Now you’ve gone and done it. The captain is pissed because of you!” a few members jeered, sauntering over to the courts for the game.
More teasing and bickering ensued before teams were picked and the training game began.
The next day was full of anticipation for you. You were bringing pa home!
At the sound of the final school bell you shot from the classroom and ran for your locker to get your bag.
“Going somewhere?” M/F asked with a chuckle when she saw you nearly fall over trying to get your school shoes off and put them in your locker to exchange them for your other shoes.
“Pa is coming home!” you said excitedly, “I’ve missed him so much!”
“No, you just don’t want to water his cabbages anymore,” she teased.
“Yeah, that too,” you replied with a chuckle, “but he’s actually coming home!”
“Ok, good luck,” she called as you finally got your shoes on and ran for the school door.
“Thanks!” you shouted, running out of the building and heading for the gate.
Kuroo was there waiting for you, leaning up against the brick wall casually as his intense eyes watched you run towards him.
“Steady there, short stack, you’ll trip over if you keep running everywhere.”
“Shut up, bean stalk, take me to the hospital!” you yelled at him, running and jumping into his arms.
He hoisted you up against his body and your arms wrapped around his neck at the same time that you initiated a heavy kiss.
“Ooooh, on school grounds and all,” a few of Kuroo’s classmates leered as they walked past, giving you both some teasing looks while they headed out the gate for home.
“Yeah, probably best not to be kissing here,” you said to Kuroo as you pulled back and let hun drop you down.
“You owe me some kisses though, I refuse to be deprived of kisses,” he said, taking your hand in his and walking beside you.
“Ok fine,” you replied, “you be a good boy and I’ll give you kisses.”
“I’m always a good boy” he said with a cheeky smirk.
“We’ve been over this before, Tit. You’re about as behaved as a child in a lolly shop.”
“Can’t argue with you there,” he replied, adding a nonchalant shrug.
You snorted with amusement and nudged him in the side as you walked off towards the bus stop together.
