“AHHHH I’M SO EXCITED!!” Hinata bubbled with an animated bounce as he gripped onto the bus seat in front of him.
His excited eyes looked across to his seat mate beside him on the bus, his team mate – Kageyama
“It’s just a training camp.” Kageyama said as he shot Hinata a bored side glance then looked back out the bus window.
These two had been basically inseparable since they formed a formidable team with Kageyama’s setting skills and Hinata’s quick spikes.
Hinata was forever the optimistically stubborn ball of sunshine and energy and Kageyama was the cynical, stubborn ball of intelligence with a very autocratic nature.
It was his way, or the highway but somehow these two just worked perfectly together and unbeknownst to Hinata, Kageyama would have wanted them to work well in a relationship too, a [romantic] relationship…
Kageyama sighed heavily as he tried to ignore Hinata’s rays of happiness seeping from beside him.
He desperately wanted to smile and enjoy Hinata’s energy but he needed to maintain his indifference otherwise he might give himself away.
There’s no way Hinata could ever like him back in that way…surely not.
“Hey Kageyama, I bet I can get my bags to our room and set up my bed faster than you can.” The orange haired spunk jeered playfully.
Kageyama smirked. “You’re on, but I’m telling you now, you’re gonna lose.”
“HAAAA??? How can you be so sure! There’s no way I can lose!” Hinata replied with excited indignation.
Their back and forth playful argument continued but Kageyama was just happy that he and Hinata would be sharing the same room, maybe they might end up getting a little closer too…
The bus pulled up and the two boys shot out the door, running flat out towards the dorm rooms.
“I call top bunk!” Shouted Hinata as he raced beside Kageyama.
“No! I’m on top bunk!” Kageyama replied sharply. “I’d top you any day anyway…”
“I can jump higher!” Hinata replied as they quickly approached the door to their room.
Both boys stumbled through the door and over the top of each other as they scrambled for the top bunk with Hinata just ahead of Kageyama.
“Mine!” Shouted Kageyama as he threw his bag at the top bunk, launching himself after it.
Hinata had dropped his bag on the ground, then, using the slight crouch from dropping the bag, he sprung up quickly in an attempt to get to the top bunk before Kageyama.
He managed to get there quicker than the taller setter and rolled mid-air so that he would land on his back, not anticipating that Kageyama might land directly on top of him from his launch from behind him.
Kageyama saw what was about to happen as Hinata’s form came into view below him and he braced his arms wider for the impact, praying they wouldn’t give way under his weight but unfortunately (or fortunately) they did, and Kageyama’s body slammed heavily into Hinata’s who almost instinctively wrapped his arms around the taller male to protect him from too much bounce impact.
There was a moment of shocked silence as Kageyama lay atop Hinata. Both of them staring into each other’s eyes as the bed stopped its bouncing.
“I landed first.” Hinata finally said with a bright smile, his arms still around Kageyama.[“Does he not even care that I’m lying on top of him?”] Kageyama thought.
“My BAG landed before you did! And plus…Y-you better not be hurt.” Kageyama said with a scowl, “that was reckless.”
“I’m fine.” Hinata laughed, his hands slipping off of Kageyama’s body as the stoic boy did a push up to get off the orangette.
“You feel like you’ve bulked up a little Kageyama, have you been doing secret training?” Hinata asked as he sat up.
Kageyama blushed and averted his eyes as he sat back. “No. Well…I didn’t think I had bulked up… I haven’t been training secretly.”
“Good! Because I’d want you to invite me to work out with you if you are doing extra training!” Hinata replied in a bubbly tone as he swung his legs off the bed and dropped back down onto the floor to get his bag. “We are a team remember!”
Kageyama nodded, still blushing slightly through a forced scowl, still keenly award of where Hinata’s hands had been on his body.
The afternoon went well and Hinata and Kageyama’s teamwork was second to none, both of them in good moods after nailing all of their quick attacks.
After finishing training for the day and having dinner they both headed back to their shared room.
“I’m gonna have a shower.” Kageyama said briefly as he grabbed a towel, purposefully leaving his clothes in his bag.
He was hoping to use the excuse of ‘I forgot my clothes’ to come back out of the bathroom after the shower, semi naked, in the hopes of showing off his body a little to his teammate and crush.
Usually Hinata would have tried to make it into a competition as to who was going to shower first but he was lost in thought, going over the afternoons practice session in his mind and seeing if there was anywhere he could have improved.
Kageyama eyed the orangette as he lay on the bottom bunk, arms up behind his head and staring at the wooden slats of the top bunk completely immersed in his own thoughts.
When there was no reply, Kageyama left, having a very quick shower before hurriedly drying himself and coming back out into the room with the towel tied low around his hips, showing off that delicious anatomical V line.
But when he returned, dressed minimally to impress, Hinata had gone…
