“Please teach me…!”
“Eh? What’s that? Sorry-- I couldn’t hear you!”
Both of the males turned around, eyes focusing on the rather tall and lean figure slowly making it’s way across the gym floor. Her eyebrows were furrowed, looking back and forth between the two, confusion and concern evident in her features.
One thought went through Oikawa’s mind. That she was really, really super cute. Like. Really.
Kageyama was the first to speak, “[Name]-Onee-Chan! W-what are you doing here?”
“I wanted to walk home with you today,” her voice was super pretty too. It wasn’t like twinkling little bells, but it was strong and smooth and deeper than most girls his age. Then her sharp eyes planted on him, “Who’re they?”
Oh right. Iwa-chan was there too.
He quickly stepped forward, his automatic ‘suave’ atmosphere taking over. At least, that’s how men on the show his mom was watching acted, “-Oikawa Tooru, at you’re service~”
He then kissed her hand. He was so cool.
She quickly yanked her hand away, and Tobio was yelling at him now about how he shouldn’t do that to his sister and it was gross and how stupid he was, but he laughed it off, “But she’s so pretty! I couldn’t help it!”
Then Tobio and the pretty older sister were walking off and away. Iwaizumi was also bombarding him with comments on how he shouldn’t do that to strangers and the back of his head was probably gonna bruise… but it was so worth it.
He was in love.
[Name] did continually visit the school and talk with Tobio often, picking him up to walk home after practices. Sometimes, when they had events on the weekends, she was even the one to drop him off. Oikawa always made sure he was an ever present figure when this would occur.
“[Name]-chan! You’re so pretty! I wish I could land a girl like you when I get older!”
By now, [Name] had gotten used to how rather comfortable Oikawa was with expressing his feelings for her, “Oh, thanks Tooru-kun!”
“Hey! Back off! You’re too young for Aniki! Quit being disrespectful too! You’re suppose to use formal honorifics!”
Kageyama wasn’t. In fact. Oikawa was pretty sure he didn’t want him to hang around his sister at all. He sent a sly smile his way, an almost sort of, ‘I’m not gonna leave your sister alone’ look. Kageyama puffed up in response, grabbing his sister’s wrist and tugging her off and away. Stupid Oikawa.
Oikawa would occasionally
always inquire bug Kageyama about what his sister was doing, what her favorite food was, what sort of boy did she like, was she into the younger type?
“Tobio-chaaan,” he whined, “Where’s your sister!? She never even drops by anymooore.”
“Idiot! She doesn’t have time! She has more important things to do!” Kageyama huffed as he collected the stray volleyballs from around the courtroom, “She has to do her school work on top of her training!”
“Eh,” he hummed, “What school does she go to, hm~?” Maybe they would end up in high school together..
Tobio smirked, “ Shiteru High, it’s an all girl’s academy with a top-notch volleyball program.”
… or not.
He pouted, picking up a few strew balls and throwing them towards the ball basket.
It was at one of his tournaments with Aobajohsai when Oikawa finally saw [Name] again. This time however, was on a volleyball court.
“Oi, Oikawa. We got to pass through the girl’s gaming area to get to our field, no messing around or anything you understand?”
“Haha, of course Iwa-chan! When have I been known to screw around?” He sung , sticking out his tongue at his fellow teammate playfully.
Iwaizumi just glared at him, continuing on towards their destination and Oikawa followed skipping lightly, his eyes lightly scanning few of the games.
Wait. Kageyama.His attention was quickly diverted. Well, more like captivated. [Name] had entered a court, high fiving a fellow team mate. She took the position of left spiker, legs slightly bent, arms in front of her, her gaze planted on the setter across the way.
She was serious, straight-face, and most of all beautiful .
The ball was up, shooting across the court. One of her team mates received, passing it quickly to their setter. There wasn’t any communication between [Name] and the setter. Only the quick fluid motion of the ball diving into her hands and the ball curved around, spinning, escaping the grasp of the blockers.
It only took a little while for him to realize she was the teams ace. It took less time for him to sit down and watch for as long as he could, mentally noting her style, her tricks, and how to later assimilate them into his own game.
Shiteru High won. Oikawa then began sprinting to his game-- it started in around 5 minutes.
Oikawa found himself struggling during the game. Karasuno had recently revived and was proving itself to be a great adversary, and while the was a great component to how honed he was… that wasn’t all of it.
“YOU GOT THIS TOBIO!! I BELIEVE IN YOU!!”
[Name] screaming from the sidelines for her younger brother certainly wasn’t helping in the slightest. He whined, leaning his head on Iwaizumi, “Iwa-chaaaan, why isn’t she cheering for me?”
He sent him a deadpan look, “Maybe because you’re on the team opposing her brother?”
“Buuuuuuut still,” he whined, “I’m the obvious romantic interest in her life! She should cheer for me!”
“You’re in over your head Oikawa…”
“COME ON KARASUNO!”
After the game, when he was walking off and away towards the bus stop, [Name] approched him. [Name]. As if that weren’t even more unbelievable she was suddenly bowing in front of him. bowing. to him.
“Thank you for challenging my brother,” she said simply.
He had absolutely no idea what to say, still trying to properly comprehend what was even occuring at the moment.
“Also,” she started up again, “I was wondering if you could teach me.”
Wait. No. Wasn’t she college league. He must have heard her wrong. “What?”
“You’re a really strong player..! I would really be super grateful if you could show me how you did a few of those things!” She stated seriously, looking at him determined.
“I…” he began slowly. Then, it all came rushing into his system. The object of his affections was asking him to teach her volleyball tricks. He blinked down at her. She was even shorter than him now-- he didn’t have to look up at her anymore. He was a man. Mostly. They weren’t so far apart in age. He imagined all the scenarios in which he could get close to her, touch her, all while they played his favorite sport together. together .
“I would love you!!!” he practically cheered. Then suddenly, a huge gust of wind reach out to him and slapped his hands that were reaching out to grab her shoulders.
[Name] turned. “Tobio!”
“Ah, sorry, I didn’t see where I was throwing…” he said simply, glaring at Oikawa.
“Ah,” Oikawa said smiling, rubbing at his hands, “Maybe you should get glasses then, Kageyama-kun, if you can’t see I mean!”
Sparks were flying between them. It looks like some things were never going to change.
It was the end of the teaching session with [Name] and all three of them were sweating profusely. Yes. Three. Tobio tagged along, obviously not wanting his sister to alone with stupid Oikawa. [Name]’s phone rang and she reached into her training bag, grinning wildly when she saw the contact name. She answered.
Sweetie. Wait. He paled in horror.
Kageyama was also wincing, watching as his sister stalked off and away with her phone happily chatting away with her supposed significant other. He was absolutely shell shocked… wait a minute. Did the other know about this!? He quickly turned towards the younger Kageyama sibling.
“She has a boyfriend?!”
“We have to break them up!”
He looked at Toruu, before nodding gravely, “I know.”
They then walked out of the train session on a mutual consensus. [Name] was at the very least not allowed to date anyone until she was thirty, unless it was Oikawa!
Tobio never agreed to that. Well, at least they were semi on the same page for once?
All the same. Oikawa absolutely refused to give up on his first love.
