The next day at school they had checked the weather forecast for the day and of course, it was going to rain. Kenma hated the rain, it always made him act weirder than usual. The rain was the only thing that triggered real emotional damage in kenmas dark and twisty heart. He had bad memories of the rain and Kuroo knew some of the stories, but he never really got why it was the rain that made kenma so unusual. A few hours had gone by and they had a free period before lunch. Kenma normally napped or played video games during his free period but today was different. Kenma was being weird and Kuroo decided to go look for him, after a relentless search of the entire school he finally tracked him down. Kenma was sitting in the corner of a dark isolated classroom at the end of the hall. The lighting was pretty dim thanks to the raging storm outside, the only thing visible was the dark blue gaming console he held in his lap. He was mindlessly mashing the buttons with a soulless look in his eyes. Kenma had always thought he was alone during these storms, pulling his knees to his chest he tried harder to focus on the game sprite on the screen. But the loud scratch of the door threw him off guard, his naturally steady hands had shock causing him to drop the console as his eyes shot up only to see Kuroo illuminated as his eyes adjusted to the fluorescent light in the hall shining into the room. “Found you,” Kuroo said as he tilted his head, his eyebrows furrowed with concern. “Kuroo…” Kenma whispered weakly, his voice cracking as his body filled with displeasure as a loud clap of thunder echoed through the room. “ You shouldn't run off during our free period, everyone's wondering where you are,” Kuroo said, trying to level his voice so he didn't sound as worried as he actually was. Closing the door behind him Kuroo made his way over to the corner Kenma was sitting in and sat down beside him. Before he could complain a loud roll of thunder sent Kenma into Kuroos grasp, Kenma clutched at Kuroo's shirt in distress. Kuroo wrapped his arms around Kenma, grasping his frame. “ It will be over soon, I promise, where is your game console?” He asked Kenma as he pointed to where it was on the floor, Kenma unborrowed his head from Kuroo's chest and grabbed his game, sitting back as he began to push buttons. Kenma blushed slightly as Kuroo adjusted his arms, moving them around Kenmas waist pulling him back into his chest. “ I don't think I've ever seen you with this much emotion. '' Kuroo said as he attempted to get a meaningful and honest response out of Kenma. Kenma didn't respond but Kuroo felt him get tenser, in a pathetic attempt to make him more comfortable, Kuroo leaned down and rested his head on Kenmas shoulder in his attempt to restore the mood. '' It's not like I want to.” Kenma said pretty emotionlessly, though his head did fall a bit he maintained his non nonchalant composure. After a few moments Kuroo's voice broke the silence “ can we go to lunch now, the storms finally letting up.” “ I'd rather stay here….. With you” he added quietly causing Kuroo to blush and force out an answer. “ s- still not calm enough.” “I'm calm now, this is just better than being surrounded by people.” “ You know you can tell me if you're scared right, I can tell you're trying to hide your emotions again,” Kuroo said as he poked Kenmas cheek trying to regain his attention. Kenma turned his head only to find their faces just a few inches apart, Kuroo searched his eyes, inadvertently moving closer to do so. The rose-like color on Kenmas cheeks became very apparent, causing a small smirk to spread across Kuroo's face. “ You know I always find you during three storms, I don't know why you still hide.” A flash of light entered the room illuminating their faces allowing Kuroo to see the fear in Kenmas eyes as his emotionless mask began to crack. “Kuroo…...:`` ''I'm right here,” he said softly as he leaned forward causing their lips to just barely brush. His half-lidded eyes watched kenma for any signs of discomfort waiting for him to make the next move. Closing his eyes Kenma leaned forward into the minimal space between them, connecting their lips in a small kiss. When he pulled back, even only a small distance he couldn't help but notice the bright pink tints that brushed across Kuroo's face as he snapped back into reality. “ your blushing” “ no, I'm not” Kenma didn't bother to believe Kuroos' indignant response quickly. “ So are you” he added frantically “ hush Kuroo” “Kenma'' Kuroo sighed, feigning exasperation, though a quick peck on the lips fixed that.
