The one where...Jin is jealous
Date: August 2012
Characters involved: Jin (28), Kazuya (26), Hayato (6), Ryu and Shuji (4), Yamapi (27), Ryo (27), Eri (3), Mari (7 months), Koki (26), Risa (5)
Jin yawned loudly as he waited for the noodles to cook, the kids were at school and Kazuya was busy talking to customers so there wasn’t much for him to do. It was before the lunch hour rush as well so it wasn’t like he was super busy. A soft hissing brought him back to the noodles and he took the pot to shake them so they wouldn’t get stuck to the bottom and get burned. When he was first learning how to make ramen he would often forget to shake the pot and as a result his teacher would whack the back of his hand with a spoon. He smiled slightly at the memories, it had been years since he was apprenticing under his old teacher’s friend. He really wondered where the time went: it wouldn’t be long before he turned thirty.
“Jin, table three wants two orders of pork ramen” Jin was slightly startled by Kazuya’s voice but nevertheless he smiled his recognition and made his way to the pork slices. Kazuya raised an eyebrow at his husband’s quietness.
“You know it isn’t nice for customers to see the chef spacing out” Jin pouted at the disapproving tone in Kazuya’s voice but before he started whining they were interrupted by a familiar voice.
“Jinjin!” Jin grinned widely at the voice and came out from behind the counter to pick up the little girl who was trying her hardest to see over the counter. Her father was right behind her pushing a small buggy. And trailing behind him were two little boys who were the exact image of Kazuya.
“Eririn~” Jin swung the girl about and laughed as she squealed happily, Ryo on the other hand glared at the two tiredly. Ryu and Shuji quietly came out from behind their uncle and Kazuya raised an eyebrow at the unusual behaviour. Ryo smirked at him and produced a small piece of paper.
“Again?” Ryo grinned whilst Kazuya groaned quietly, he turned around to glare at the two guilty boys who were trying their hardest not to be noticed.
“I’ll have a chat with you two later; just know that you’re not getting any dessert today” They opened their mouth to protest but were instantly quietened when Kazuya gave them ‘the look’.
“What happens to boys who fight?” Ryu and Shuji shuffled guiltily under their mother’s gaze.
“They don’t get dessert” Shuji mumbled the answer quietly whilst Ryu looked away with a pout. Kazuya smiled at them: even if they were troublemakers they were still damn cute: definitely his sons.
“Right go and put your bags away and then you can play with Ryo-san and Eri-chan when she’s finished with your father” The two boys instantly brightened up and nodded cheerily before racing upstairs. Kazuya felt a slight movement behind him and turned around to see Jin trying to see Mari. Eri was on his hip and was tugging at his chain to try and get his attention.
“Ah she’s asleep” Kazuya also peeked into the buggy to get a look at the baby inside and was disappointed to see she was indeed asleep.
“It’s the first time she’s fallen asleep today” Kazuya looked at Ryo in pity, remembering his own sleepless nights whilst Jin slept soundly next to him. Ryo had huge eye bags and did indeed look exhausted.
“Well at least you’re only a househusband so it’s not like you have to work or anything” Kazuya inwardly groaned at his husband’s lack of tact. Although Ryo had decided to stay at home to watch the children years ago he was still a little sensitive about it. He loved it but every so often some macho working man would make fun of him for not providing for his family. Hoping to avoid a fight Kazuya patted Ryo’s shoulder and turned to Jin.
“Bakanishi go watch the noodles, if they get burnt I’ll shove your face in the stock understand?” Jin pouted at his wife but nevertheless put Eri down and went back to the kitchen. The place was pretty empty now but soon it would start filling up. Kazuya turned to Ryo and smiled apologetically, Ryo on the other just shrugged: knowing it was just Jin being Jin.
“Come on I’ll help you lift the buggy upstairs” Kazuya looked around to find Eri so the little girl could follow them but she had already raced up the stairs after the twins. Kazuya shrugged before making his own way to the stairs, Ryo was right behind him and Kazuya turned around to take a hold of the bottom of the buggy.
“Thanks for picking them up again by the way, I’m sorry you have to keep going down there but it gets so busy here during lunch time” Although it was a little awkward to bring the buggy upstairs the two were pretty used to it and managed just fine.
“It’s fine, I don’t mind really since going for a walk seems to be the only thing to put Mari asleep” The two brought the buggy to the top of the stairs easily and Kazuya stepped out of the way so Ryo could get past. Kazuya gave him a pat on the back before heading back down, before he could get down however he was pulled back by Ryo. Kazuya looked at the older man curiously, waiting for the reason.
“I can’t pick them up tomorrow, Mari has her doctor’s appointment at lunch time” Kazuya frowned slightly but nodded nonetheless.
“It’s fine; do you need someone to babysit Eri?” Ryo sighed but shook his head.
“Hime said she could stay in the shop whilst we’re gone” Kazuya nodded with a smile.
“You really need to put her into preschool” Although they knew it would never happen Jin and Kazuya still mentioned putting Eri into preschool a lot, mainly so they could annoy Ryo but also because it would be a lot easier on the man.
“You know Hime, he doesn’t trust the government; he’s still trying to find ways to get her out of going to elementary school” Kazuya laughed, knowing full well how paranoid Tatsuya can be.
Kazuya headed downstairs again, trying to think of someone who could help Jin tomorrow. When he entered the restaurant he wasn’t too surprised to see the place getting more crowded, the rush was a little late this time but Kazuya wasn’t too worried. He chanced a glance at Jin who was busily making the ramen; he would talk about tomorrow when things had quietened down.
The next couple of hours were pretty busy. When the restaurant had first opened it was completely empty until word got round that the chef was a handsome little thing. It was soon packed full of women and school girls, Kazuya didn’t mind that much: actually he thought it was pretty funny because Jin just didn’t take compliments well. Seeing him fumble with the equipment and stutter out thanks whilst bright red was just so endearing. After some advertising at Hayato’s playgroup the restaurant was soon packed with families as well as gawping women. Although they were often run off their feet the business was good, and they needed all the money they could get to pay off the loan on this place.
Kazuya wasn’t able to talk to Jin until the kids were in bed. He had to pick up Hayato from school, go grocery shopping (he was determined to make sure his kids didn’t have ramen every night no matter how much Jin insisted), help Jin with the dinner rush and then he had to see Ryo off, and after that he had to make their own dinner (fried shrimp) and of course after making dinner and clearing everything away he had to help Hayato with his homework and finally send all three of them to bed. So after reading the boys their bedtime story Kazuya finally had a chance to himself.
Kazuya wasn’t the only one who was completely wiped out. After having dinner Jin went back downstairs to count up the money and clean all the dishes, wipe down the tables and take a mop to the floor. It was amazing how many bowls their customers seemed to go through. He had just finished off as Kazuya was putting the boys to bed, after popping in to kiss the three (he’d give the fourth an extra special kiss tonight ^_~) boys goodnight he went into the living room to plop down on a seat and stare into space.
When he had finished the book and made sure all three were sound asleep Kazuya tiredly slumped into the living room. The younger man smiled mischievously when he saw Jin dozing off in his chair, making sure to be quiet Kazuya sneaked over to the other man. He contemplated what to do for a few seconds before grinning and plopping down onto Jin’s lap. Jin jumped awake, and Kazuya only stayed on the man’s lap because he had done this so many times and knew what to expect. When Jin realised it was only Kazuya on his lap he grinned tiredly at the other and wrapped his arms around the small waist. Kazuya laid his head on Jin’s shoulder and nuzzled into the older man’s neck. For the first time today it was just them: there were no kids, no irritating customers, and no angry little men, just them. Speaking of angry little men, Kazuya hated to break the comfortable silence but he knew they had to discuss tomorrow.
“Ryo said he can’t pick Ryu and Shuji up from school tomorrow, we’ll need to find someone to help you out” Jin groaned and laid his head on Kazuya’s. He heaved a sigh before shifting the younger one slightly in his lap so he could fish out his phone.
“I’m sure Pi has a day off tomorrow, I’ll text him and ask” Kazuya sighed and got off of Jin’s lap, and managed to stay off despite Jin’s protests and flailing hand which was trying desperately to pull Kazuya back.
“You had better phone him to make sure he gets it, you know what he’s like” They both knew full well what Yamapi was like. Often when Jin would text him asking him to help out the pig would pretend he never got the text. Kazuya went into the kitchen to wash the dishes; unlike most people he liked washing the dishes because it gave him the chance to just space out and think of nothing.
He was just about finished the last plate when Jin came into the kitchen. He picked up a dish towel and plucked up a small bowl to dry it. Kazuya smiled his thanks and placed the now clean plate into the dish rack.
“So what did he say?” Kazuya looked at Jin expectantly whilst the older man was busy making sure there were no suds left on the dish.
“He said it’d be fine, not without complaining though” Kazuya smiled whilst Jin rolled his eyes in annoyance at his best friend. Although Jin liked to think he was mature and responsible Kazuya knew better, if the roles were reversed he knew Jin would try to find any excuse to weasel out of work. Jin left the sink to put the bowl in the cupboard, in the pile of bowls of course because otherwise Kazuya would freak out.
“And now that’s out of the way we have something else to discuss” Jin raised an eyebrow when Kazuya grinned seductively at him. The younger man made his way towards Jin, making sure to swing his hips along the way. When he reached Jin he wound his arms around the other’s neck whilst Jin wound his own arms around Kazuya’s waist.
“Hmmm we do indeed have something important to discuss, like how I managed to marry a man as fine as you” Kazuya giggled whilst Jin placed soft kisses along his jawline.
“And a man as loving as you, and as gorgeous, and romantic, and sweet” Jin emphasised each complement with soft kisses on Kazuya’s face and neck. Kazuya grinned widely at Jin’s treatment, his arms winding tighter around Jin’s neck to bring their bodies closer together.
“And my personal favourite: a man with as tight an ass as yours” Jin squeezed Kazuya’s butt and Kazuya squealed slightly in surprise. Jin grinned down at Kazuya who was chuckling.
“I really love you” Jin gazed down at Kazuya who smiled back up at him. The younger man reached up to capture Jin’s lips, causing their groins to rub together. Both men groaned into the kiss before pulling away to discard their shirts. Once they were both topless Jin grabbed Kazuya’s thighs and hoisted the younger man up, Kazuya wrapped his legs around Jin’s waist securely in response.
“Bedroom. Now” Jin nodded frantically and took his beloved wife to their bedroom, trying and failing to open the door as Kazuya whispered dirty promises into his ear. He eventually managed and slammed the door shut when they got into the bedroom, not caring about waking up his own children: he was far too eager, wanting to take Kazuya up on those promises.
Jin looked out at the restaurant with a dazed smile, remembering last night and how Kazuya tightened his hole just so. His attention was brought back when his head received an almighty whack. Jin gave a yelp and glared at Yamapi who glared just as heatedly back.
“Stop spacing out you moron, table five wants beef ramen and pork ramen” Jin pouted and turned away from his best friend. He missed Kazuya.
Whilst Jin was spacing out and grinning like a pervert when he should be paying attention to the busy restaurant Kazuya was waiting outside Ryu and Shuji’s preschool. He nodded politely to the other mothers who were waiting rather impatiently for the kids to finally come out. He couldn’t blame them: he had a ton of stuff to do and he would rather get the boys home as soon as possible. Whilst waiting he ran through the list of groceries he needed in his head, making sure to make a note that he had to get Hayato a new lunchbox since Hayato swapped his old one for a beetle yesterday. Gerry was waiting for his new owner faithfully in his brand new plastic home, complete with fresh leaves. Kazuya wondered how many times he would have to replace Gerry.
“Kame-chan?” Kazuya turned around; he was puzzled because everybody here either called him Kazuya or Kamenashi. His eyes widened when he saw who called him.
“Koki!?” There he was in all his glory. Tanaka Koki: once small, skinny and bald. Now he was older and no longer bald or small. Instead of the threatening glower he used to always wear he was grinning sunnily at Kazuya.
“It is you! You’ve really changed, I remember when you were so skinny our teacher was sure you were starving yourself” Kazuya laughed at the memory. He had always been scarily thin, something that attracted a lot of concern from his teachers and classmates. After giving birth to Hayato however Kazuya’s freakish ability to not gain weight vanished and now he was pleasingly plump, as Jin would say.
“Yeah, well, children change things” Kazuya hadn’t seen Koki since they graduated from high school. They were best friends in school, even though Koki glowered a lot and used to pretend he was a scary gangster he was always the sweetest to Kazuya.
“You have kids?” Koki’s eyes widened curiously and Kazuya nodded.
“Uh huh, three, all boys” Koki’s surprise dwindled and he smiled happily at Kazuya who smiled just as happily back.
“So you finally got over Bakanishi then?” Kazuya blushed, remembering all those times he had gushed on and on about how amazing Jin was. Koki chuckled when he noticed Kazuya’s reaction. When the younger man wasn’t going on about how great their senpai was he was complaining about how much of a slut the older man was. Kazuya cleared his throat before answering.
“Actually I married him”
“Eh!? Seriously? Wow, all those years mooning over him weren’t wasted then” Koki grinned at Kazuya who pouted back.
“I did not moon over him!” Koki let out a snort of derision when he heard this.
“Sure you didn’t, because it’s normal to stalk people and send them pieces of your hair” Kazuya squeaked and blushed profusely. No-one, not even Jin, knew about his obsession with the older man. The only reason Koki knew was because he caught Kazuya stuffing the piece of hair into Jin’s locker.
“Shut up! I was young and stupid!” Koki barked a laugh and patted Kazuya’s shoulder as the younger man pouted indignantly. He was about to retort but the ringing of the school bell interrupted him.
The doors opened and out came two lines of pre-schoolers, they lined up against the wall and the teachers started their usual process of selecting parents to find their children. It used to be much more chaotic: when Hayato was at this preschool he would always be the first to race out of those doors and into his mother’s arms. Kazuya preferred it that way: he would get to leave quickly and without having to deal with bratty little children. With the increased concern about paedophiles and kidnappers however schools all over the country were tightening security.
It also gave the teachers a chance to find the parent responsible for a troublemaker so they could accost them in front of all the other parents, as Kazuya had had the pleasure to experience many times in the past. He could see Ryu and Shuji lined up together, not that anyone could ever separate them. Eventually the teacher brought them to Kazuya; the look on her face was something he had seen many times before. Kazuya groaned inwardly: yet again he was going to be scolded because the twins were fighting. He thought he’d had it all with Hayato but these two were even worse!
“Akanishi-san I hope you received my note yesterday” Kazuya took Ryu and Shuji by the hand and nodded at the teacher. He had this lecture memorised by now.
“I know it’s difficult since you’re so busy but this is the third time this month that Ryu-kun and Shuji-kun have been on the red book” Kazuya smiled politely and bowed his head in apology.
“I’m really sorry, I spoke to them about it yesterday and they promised to be on their best behaviour from now on” The teacher gave him one last disapproving glance as Kazuya showed her a fake smile. When she turned her back Kazuya rolled his eyes and made a face.
“No wonder she can’t get married” Koki laughed but Kazuya turned to Ryu and Shuji with a disapproving frown.
“I’m being serious, you get into trouble again and you won’t go to Disneyland understand?” Ryu and Shuji immediately burst into protests, Shuji’s eyes shone with unshed tears. Kazuya, however, was completely immune to the turtle eyes and just ignored them. Instead he turned to Koki.
“So why exactly are you here?”
“Eh? Ah I’m picking up my daughter” Kazuya choked on his saliva. Daughter? He stared at Koki in surprise and confusion but Koki just laughed.
“If you treat me to lunch I’ll tell you about it” Kazuya quickly recovered and nodded slightly.
“We’ll have to go grocery shopping but we can have some ramen at our place” Koki looked slightly taken aback and protested.
“No I was only kidding, you don’t have to!” Kazuya just laughed and clapped the other man’s shoulder.
“Really it’s fine, there will probably be left over ramen anyway” Koki nodded unsurely but Kazuya was distracted by a tug on his shirt.
“Mama, can we have takoyaki tonight?” Kazuya narrowed his eyes slightly at Ryu who was gazing up at him with wide eyes, behind him Shuji was watching the scene anxiously.
“I don’t know, do boys who don’t behave get nice things like takoyaki? Perhaps you should have your father’s ramen instead” Ryu’s eyes instantly widened and Kazuya couldn’t help but feel a little bad. Sighing he bent down and pecked Ryu’s forehead.
“We can have takoyaki tonight, but you have to be good okay?” Ryu nodded fervently, the action made him topple forward slightly as the huge backpack weighed him down. Kazuya smiled and took the backpack off of him and when he stood up he reached out his hand for Shuji’s also who immediately wrestled the thing off.
“Papa!” A loud squeal caught Kazuya’s attention and a blurry shape flew past him into Koki’s arms. Back at the school building the teachers and other parents were watching the scene with disapproval. Koki gave a goofy smile and bowed his head in apology.
“She still isn’t used to having to wait in line” Kazuya smiled at the little girl who was now staring curiously at him.
“Risa, this is my old friend from high school Kame-chan” Kazuya bent down again to stick out his hand.
“Hello Risa-chan, my name is Akanishi Kazuya but you can call me Kame-chan, these are Ryu-kun and Shuji-kun” Kazuya pointed to the twins respectively and the little girl hesitantly took Kazuya’s hand.
“Why are you called Kame-chan?” She frowned at Kazuya who chuckled lightly in response.
“Because my maiden name is Kamenashi” Again the little girl looked confused but Koki came to the rescue.
“Kame-chan married someone called Akanishi so he took that man’s surname, but before then he was called Kamenashi” The little girl made an o-shape with her mouth and instantly grinned. She then turned to her father.
“Sushi?” Koki smiled and patted Risa on the head before answering.
“Kame-chan is making us some ramen” Risa frowned and glanced at Kazuya who was watching the scene in amusement.
“But you promised we could have sushi” Koki glared at his daughter who glared right back.
“Well we can have sushi for dinner tonight” Risa chewed her lip as she contemplated her father’s words.
“Fine but you have to actually make it instead of buying it” Koki sighed but nodded, Risa smiled brightly in response.
“Before we have anything we’ll need to go grocery shopping” Kazuya interrupted the scene between the Tanakas but was distracted by a tug on his sleeve.
“Yes Ryu I’ll buy takoyaki” Kazuya sighed as Ryu grinned brightly then went back to his brother. Kazuya really couldn’t say no to that boy which Shuji clocked onto, now whenever the twins wanted something Ryu would be the one to ask rather than Shuji.
After going to the grocery store to get takoyaki and Hayato’s new lunch box the five went back to the restaurant. It wasn’t particularly busy anymore so Kazuya sent the twins upstairs to get changed out of their school uniform and put the groceries on the table. Yamapi waved before turning back to his customer. Jin grinned upon seeing his beloved wife and came out from behind the counter, his steps faltered however when he noticed Koki. Jin frowned at him and pouted at Kazuya.
“Who the hell is this?” Koki raised an eyebrow at the greeting but Kazuya just scoffed.
“You remember Koki right? I went to school with him” Jin continued to glare, even when Kazuya kissed him on the lips. Noticing the glare Kazuya stepped back and slapped Jin’s head.
“Stop being jealous or I’ll run off with him” Jin pouted at the abuse but Kazuya just went back to the table to pick up the grocery bags along with the twins’ school bags and made his way to the stairs.
“I just need to put these upstairs so make yourself at home, Jin stop pouting like a child and take their order” Kazuya disappeared upstairs which left Jin alone with Koki. Well not exactly, but close enough. Beside Koki Risa was glaring up at Jin, wondering just who this man was to greet her father in such a way.
“What do you want?” Jin glared at Koki but Koki just chuckled at Jin’s behaviour.
“You really don’t remember me?” Jin raised an eyebrow at Koki and shrugged, he turned away to go back to the kitchen. Koki and Risa followed him, Koki picked up Risa to set her on the stool by the counter.
“I was in the same class as Kame-chan, we used to sit together at lunch all the time” Jin ignored Koki but the younger man continued.
“I was friends with Yamapi too” Jin turned his back on Koki and pulled out a dish rag, he started wiping down the dishes whilst making faces as Koki talked.
“You really don’t remember me? I used to scowl a lot and I had a buzz cut, I was such a delinquent back then” Koki laughed but Jin grumbled under his breath. Eventually he turned around and slammed his hand on the counter.
“Listen here, I don’t care how cool you are or how bad ass you are I’ll kick your ass if you dare to make a move on MY Kazuya” Koki stared at Jin in shock, Risa on the other hand stood up on the stool.
“Stupid man! Show respect to my daddy!” Koki steadied the young girl so she wouldn’t fall backwards.
“Listen here brat; you’re in my restaurant so both you and your OW!” Kazuya appeared from behind Jin holding a large notebook. Jin was bent over the counter clutching his head as he groaned in pain. Kazuya glared at his husband before smiling sweetly at Koki and Risa. Ryu and Shuji came down the stairs behind Kazuya and simply glanced at the scene before going to annoy Yamapi.
“I’m sorry about him, he’s such a child” Kazuya smiled at Koki and Risa apologetically before turning back to Jin. “And you forgot the takings again, stop making me go up there and get it for you” Jin pouted but took the book Kazuya handed to him. He wondered where he had put it; he thought he’d have to use a napkin when emptying the till at the end of the day.
“So what would you like?” Koki ordered ramen for him and Risa which Jin reluctantly began to make. Kazuya sat on the stool next to Koki, deciding Yamapi could handle the customers for another while. Noticing Koki Yamapi came up to the counter with a wide grin.
“Tanaka Koki, I never thought I’d see you again” Koki turned around and grinned when he saw Yamapi, the two men hugged each other which only fuelled Jin’s jealousy further. The twins came trailing behind Yamapi and stared up at their mother who raised an eyebrow at their quietness.
“And you! Tell your children to stop bothering me; they made me trip over and spill water on a customer!” Yamapi glared at the twins who ignored him in favour of looking up at their mother all wide eyed and innocent. Kazuya sighed.
“Boys stop bothering Yamapi whilst he’s working, wait until he’s on break and away from the customers” Yamapi spluttered whilst Kazuya grinned cheekily at the other man. Koki laughed at the two.
“You two never change” The three smiled at each other as fond memories cropped up.
“But you do, you have hair now!” Koki ran a hand through his hair, although it had been long for years he still hadn’t really gotten used to it.
“So you were going to tell me your story” Kazuya leaned towards Koki, of course Jin was watching the scene with extreme jealousy. He was pretty tempted to throw the fryer fat at the stupid man; he could make it look like an accident although he’d probably just burn himself. Koki turned to Risa instead and lifted her off of the stool and onto the floor.
“Risa, why don’t you play with Ryu-kun and Shuji-kun whilst your ramen is cooked?” Risa looked at the twin boys doubtfully; they were clinging to their mother’s legs, which wasn’t exactly her idea of fun. Upon hearing this, the twins looked up at Kazuya doubtfully also: they didn’t like playing with strange people. Kazuya nodded at the two and gently shoved Shuji towards Risa. Reluctantly the three children went off to a far off table to play together. Or sit in awkward silence whilst looking at each other. Either way the adults were alone and Koki started his story.
It was a pretty heart breaking story; even Jin had to wipe away a few stray tears although he just said the fryer fat got onto his arm. After graduation Koki started an apprenticeship at a mechanic shop, it fit in nicely with his image at the time. However he got fired a few weeks later because he kept bringing in stray animals and rather than working on the cars he tended to the animals. Koki always loved animals, despite his bad boy image, but he could never get a job in a pet shop or animal shelter because of the way he looked. He was pretty desperate when he found a small puppy stuck in a drain, it took quite a while but he finally managed to free it. An old man saw what he did and offered him a job in his pet store which was pretty awesome. The old man had a granddaughter who lived with him; she was still in high school but she sometimes helped out. Over time Koki and Sakura fell in love, understandably the old man wasn’t happy about it but nevertheless he allowed them to date. Unfortunately Sakura fell pregnant, she wanted to abort the baby but Koki convinced her not to and they told the old man. He was pretty angry and fired Koki on the spot, Koki was banned from coming near the shop or Sakura for months. Eventually the old man calmed down and after much convincing he allowed Koki to move in with them. Koki looked after both Sakura and the old man who had started to get sick pretty often. It was a difficult pregnancy and an even more difficult labour: Sakura died giving birth to Risa. She lived just long enough to hold her baby before she started haemorrhaging. Understandably Koki blamed himself: he was the one who pushed Sakura to have the baby after all. It was pretty difficult but Koki had plenty of support from both the old man and his own family. A few years later the old man died; his health had been deteriorating rapidly since his granddaughter’s death, he left everything he owned to Koki. It turned out that the old man had quite a few savings which Koki then used to open up an animal shelter nearby.
“She really looks like her mother” Koki gave a small, bitter smile as he remembered everything that happened. Kazuya and Yamapi had been biting back the tears throughout the entire story but eventually Kazuya flung himself onto Koki and began blubbering.
“You poor man, you’ve been so strong going through all this and, and” Kazuya descended into tears whilst Koki awkwardly patted is back. Yamapi hugged Koki from the other side, his own tears falling down his cheeks. Jin’s back was turned on the three and had been since Koki began telling them about Sakura’s death. His shoulders were shaking slightly and his fist was shoved into the mouth to prevent any sound. Kazuya then gathered himself and pulled away; he wiped the tears away and smiled sheepishly.
“Sorry, I’ll just get some napkins” Kazuya slid off of the stool and went behind the counter into the kitchen. He noticed Jin’s shaking shoulders and placed a hand gently on the older man’s arm.
“Jin, are you okay?” Jin nodded frantically but didn’t turn around. Kazuya frowned at the strange behaviour. “Are you crying?”
“No!” Jin squeaked out, it was pretty obvious that he had indeed been crying and Kazuya just smiled and hugged the other man from behind. Jin clutched Kazuya’s hands tightly.
“I just, I’m just really happy that you got through labour perfectly fine” Kazuya smiled at Jin words and reached round to peck Jin’s cheek. “I mean, I just, I couldn’t cope with the boys on my own and -” Jin’s words were interrupted as his voice got higher and more cracked. Kazuya buried his head in his husband’s back.
“You’d do just fine Jin, don’t belittle yourself” His words came out muffled but Jin understood them. He turned around and wrapped Kazuya in a tight hug. They didn’t notice their audience, even the children had come over to see what was wrong. Kazuya cleared his throat then and pulled away from Jin, he kissed the other’s lips lightly and smiled when they pulled apart.
“You better get back to the ramen, I think the noodles are burning” Jin nodded and pecked Kazuya one last time before turning back to the stove. Kazuya went over to get some napkins before going back to the counter. He set the pack on the counter and reached out to hold Koki’s hand.
“If you need anything we’d be glad to help” Kazuya and Koki smiled at each other, Jin however noticed this prolonged contact and instantly glared at Koki. He clutched the pan tightly, his knuckles turning white as he tried his hardest not to launch the thing at that stupid man. Jin watched as the two were chatting happily, giving each other loving glances and watched as Koki caressed HIS Kazuya’s hand. Eventually Jin snapped.
“Stop touching my wife!” The conversation stopped, everyone stared at Jin as he fumed. Used to Jin being possessive Yamapi sighed before going back to the customers. Kazuya stared blankly at Jin before turning back to Koki and completely ignoring his fuming husband. Annoyed at being ignored, Jin pulled out the dirty dish rag and threw it at Koki. The rag smacked the man straight on the face and Jin smirked triumphantly. This triumph was cut shot however as Kazuya turned around, he was wearing his ‘Jin you better run or I’ll kill you’ face and Jin watched his wife with wide eyes.
Jin immediately turned back to the stove and cooked the ramen, trying his hardest to ignore the shivers going down his spine as Kazuya glared furiously at him.
It got to the point where I just wanted to finish so badly
Lol anyway comments are very much welcomed ♥
