“This is the place you were talking about? It looks like a total dump to me.” Kagami looked through the chain link fence that surrounded the old, rundown apartment complex with a deep frown on his lips. "Are you sure this is the right place?"
“I'm one hundred and ten percent positive that this is the place." You nodded. "It's supposed to be run down. That's kind of the whole point. Now, stop your complaining and give me a boost over this fence.” Since the fence completely surrounded the old building, and there was a thick, heavy duty lock on the only gate, the only way to get past it was to jump over it.
“Fine.” Rather apathetically, Kagami bent down, lacing his fingers together to create a makeshift step for you. “Go ahead.” You placed your foot on his hands and hopped over the fence. Kagami suddenly smiled. “What would happen if I just left you there?”
“I'd break down the fence and hit you with it.” Crossing your arms over your chest, you let out a loud snort. “Now hurry up before someone sees us and we both end up in trouble.” Not waiting for him to join you on the other side, you turned around and started making a run for the abandoned building.
“Before someone sees us...” As he jumped over the fence, Kagami yelled after you. “Hey, what are you getting us into?” Quickly catching up to you, he placed a heavy hand on your shoulder, stopping you from entering the building. “Stop for a minute. I don't want to do something that's going to get me kicked off the team. If your idea of fun is going to do that, you can count me out.”
“You won't get kicked off if no one finds out. Besides, I doubt you'd get in trouble even if we were found out.” With a little bit of effort, you broke free of his strong grip. “Now stop being such an old man and come on.” Grabbing Kagami's hand with yours, you pulled him through the front door. The inside of the building made the outside look like new. Water dripped from the ceiling, the walls were covered in graffiti and filled with holes. The building was structurally unsafe and was falling apart in more ways than one. “Not bad, maybe I should make an offer on this place.” You laughed. “Watch your step, it looks like they're remodeling.”
Shaking his head at your last remark, he sighed. “Would you please tell me why we're here now. This place isn't even suited to house rats.” Kagami still hadn't moved from the doorway. Actually, he almost seemed unwilling to move, as if he was scared or uneasy about something. This was understandable, since the floor looked like it might give at any second, but you suspected there was another reason.
“Not yet.” You winked. “Just wait a little longer.” You grabbed his hand, in an attempt to get him to move. Even with you pulling with all of your might, he wouldn't budge. “What's your problem? Don't tell me you're afraid of the dark or something ridiculous like that.”
Kagami was almost growling at you. “No.” Determined to show you he wasn't afraid of anything, he squeezed your hand tightly and walked up a collapsing flight of stairs. At the top was a long hallway with doors on either side all the way down. Since there was no roof in this area, it was surprisingly bright for it to be as late as it was.
“Hmm, nothing special here, huh? Maybe we should check out some of these rooms.” You grinned up at him teasingly. “Unless, of course, you're scared. I've heard this place is completely filled with restless spirits and stuff like that. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some pretty freaky things in here. Now that I think about it, we probably should have brought some sort of protection. But really, what can the living, use to protect themselves from the dead?”
“That wasn't funny the first time you said it. Now tell me, what are we doing here?” He crossed his arms, once again refusing to move from his spot. “You're risking getting the both of us in trouble, and for seemingly no reason. I could be doing some training, or eating right now. But instead, I'm standing here, listening to you talk about ghosts.”
“Fine, fine, it's just a little further.” You sighed and signaled him to follow you. As you walked down the hall, you couldn't help but notice that Kagami kept looking over his shoulder. He seemed completely paranoid. Not wanting to annoy him, you just pretended not to notice. “Okay, it's just down this stairwell. I promise.”
“It's? No chance of you telling me what “it” is, is there?” at this point, he was walking much closer to you than necessary. Each time you'd step too far away from him, he'd grab at you, pulling you close. There was no denying it, Kagami was scared.
“Nope, just stay close to me, like you're doing now. Not too much closer though, or you'll be on top of me.” Smiling confidently, you grabbed hold of an old, rusted over door knob and prepared to turn it. “Well, here we are, should we go inside? We could wait a little longer if you wanted to. I'd understand if you needed a few more minutes to compose yourself.”
Obviously agitated by how slowly you were moving, Kagami pushed past you, trying to get a hold of the knob. “Would you just open the door already?”
Pressing your hand to his chest, you gently pushed him back. “Patience Kagami, this is worth waiting for. Now, let's proceed.” You gently turned the knob and pushed open the door. As you opened the door, it released a hidious sounding squeak.
“W-what, how is this possible?” Wide eyed, Kagami picked you up and moved you out of his way. He stepped inside the room and gawked at what he saw. Though this room was dark, due to the lack of windows or holes in the roof, what it contained was impressive. It was a basketball court and a small fitness area complete with anything Kagami might need. “Was this always here, did you do this?”
“Slow down there.” You giggled, finding his sudden change in mood all too funny. “Yes, it was here, but it needed a lot of work. And I didn't do it alone either. I had help, a lot of help actually." Remembering the days and days you had spent fixing this place up, you sighed. Honestly, your muscles still ached a bit from all the work you'd done. "Do you like it?”
“Yes, I do.” Kagami rubbed the back of his head, not knowing what to say. “You said you had help, who was it?” Only a second after he asked, he let out a loud yell, jumping into the air as high as he could. There was evident fear on his face. “What just touched me?”
“I'm sorry, that was me.” Kuroko looked up at Kagami, somehow keeping a perfectly straight face. “You asked who helped, so I thought it was a good time to show myself.”
Kagami was still in shock. He pressed his hand down on Kuroko's head, near yelling at him. “Why do you have to do that to people? It isn't normal.” His calmness quickly returned, now more embarrassed than he was angry.
“You may have overreacted, just a little bit.” You really did try not to laugh at him, but seeing him that way was too funny for you to take. “I think that jump may have been a new record for you. What had you so freaked out anyway? Not scared of spiders or something silly like that, are you?”
Kuroko answered in Kagami's place. “He's really afraid of ghosts. I had forgotten about that until just now. So this is actually all my fault.”
“Shut up, will you?” With one swift motion, Kagami slapped his hand over Kuroko's mouth. “I'm not saying what he said is true, but if I'm going to use this place to train, we may need to add a few more holes here and there. For a breeze, of course.”
Mumbling through Kagami's hand, Kuroko divulged more secret information. “Kagami, it's not nice to lie to someone who likes you so much. Especially since you claim to like her too. We really worked hard on this, it would be a shame to fill the room with holes after we spent so much time filling them.”
Your hand joined Kagami's in covering Kuroko's mouth. Blushing due to the fact that your own little secret had just been made public, you turned your eyes away and took a deep breath in. “We really may need to get a muzzle for him, or at least stop telling him our secrets.”
Slightly red faced himself, though that was thankfully hidden by the darkness, at least for the most part, Kagami nodded. "Agreed."
haha Kuroko the man who spill everyone's secrets XD
