after a long time of procrastination i finally made another fic. XD
Rating: General Patronage.[just because] XD
Pairing: OhMaru with a hint of Yasu-ness. XD
Disclaimer: this is just a fic and some of their characteristics here are just mere figments of my imagination and are baseless. Also, I did this fic without a storyline, all I thought about was that I wanted to make an ohmaru fic
because I love them so much so forgive me for the not-so-good-flow and story.
x i'm not very good with tenses so please forgive me for the inconsistencies.
x omamori as i understand usually refers to that square-ish charm acquired from temples but in this context it is any lucky charm. ^_^
THROUGH THE GLASS BEAD BRACELET
THROUGH THE GLASS BEAD BRACELET
maru has always been known as a completely idiotic person. wherever he is, laughter is expected. he is always funny and even he tries to be serious he still looks dumb. worst cases are, when he tries to be cool, he still seem lame. on the other hand, tacchon is always always cool. Even when he’s pigging out, everyone just finds it adorable.
Maru looks up to the younger boy in a certain way especially when the fans would screaming from admiration just by his smile. Of course, when he smiles, he also gets a reaction which was laughter. Along with this admiration is the inevitable envy. Who wouldn’t? as idols, especially johnny’s, it’s not exactly humor that they sell, it’s more of the face.
They were not exactly as close as their relationship with the other members. Tacchon was in good terms with ryo and yasu. Maru is quite close with Subaru and Yasu. Maru and yasu had been good friends since their junior days so it was not surprising that they still have that band. Yasu must be really friendly since he became good friends with their group member who was, for maru, hard to reach. He was actually surprised that they were not close since they are doing band sessions and bassists and drummers are usually close since they are both usually at the back and they coordinate in making the beats.
So the real story started when maru and yasu had a small fight. Yasu borrowed maru’s glass bead bracelet. He thought it really looked good on his outfit. For some reason, he lost it and can’t remember where. “Maru I’m so sorry, I lost your bracelet. Don’t worry, I’ll replace it I promise.” Yasu said while raising his right hand as if taking an oath. Maru looked at him in disbelief. That bracelet was given to him by his mother. She made it and it served as his omamori, it has always cheered him up when he was down, it made him feel like his mother is just beside him. Maru never gets mad but this really brought him down. “it’s okay, you can’t replace it.” He replied coldly then left Yasu. Yasu can’t do anything. He can tell that Maru is mad.
“are you alright?” tacchon asked yasu. Yasu had a blank stare.
“I am, but I don’t think maru is.” He explained to him what happened. Tacchon was sympathetic but for some reason, a faint smile crossed his lips.
The truth is, he saw that bracelet in their dressing room, unfortunately, he didn’t pick it up. Yasu left it when they were having their dress rehearsals. He knew that he was being mean but he finally found a way to talk to his admired group member. Yes, he had always admired maru, wherever he is, it just seems fun, unlike himself which he found very boring. He is now determined to find that bracelet at all cost. He searched for hours and saw that it was tossed under one of the cabinets in their dressing room. Unfortunately, it’s string was broken. He fixed it at once when he arrived home.
The next day, maru came the next day, it was surprising for the other members not to hear maru’s usual cheerful “Ohayo!”. When maru’s and yasu’s eyes met, maru just gave him a slight nod. “anou, Maru, I heard that you lost your bracelet, I found something under that cabinet” he said pointing to the cabinet where he found the bracelet. “and I thought this might be it” he said again pretending to be unsure that it was maru’s bracelet eventhough he was certain that it was because he always sees him wearing it. He finally showed the bracelet to Maru. Maru’s eyes brightened as he took the bracelet. “than you so much…” he said, not sure how to address tacchon. “it’s just that it was broken when I found it, it might not be the same but I thought you would still want to have it.” Tacchon replied coolly. Maru was deeply touched that tacchon even went through the trouble of fixing it. “ how can I thank you ta.. ta.. tatsuyoshi?” he suddenly blurted out. “I mean Tadayoshi-san”. Yasu approached them and said, “I’m really sorry for losing your bracelet but I’m glad that you found it already.” He said with a sincere smile. Maru, a naturally kind person had already forgiven his best friend. “it’s okay.” He replied with a smile. The three of them agreed to have lunch together.
By some weird twist of faith, tacchon and maru ended up having lunch together. Just the two of them. Well, it wasn’t that weird, it just happened that yasu had to meet-up with his manager for something work-related. At first, the atmosphere was so weird so tacchon had to break the ice, “I’m just curious, why did you call me tatsuyoshi a while ago? Anyway, please no more of the formalities.” He said while smiling. Maru did not know what to do, he has always wanted to give this young boy that he adored a pet name and he just blurted it out a while ago. Tacchon’s smile and waiting look made him want to say it. “I’ll tell you if you promise me that you won’t laugh.”
After that, Maru had called tacchon, tatsuyoshi and I return he called him maruchan. They were always together, they would often eat out or go to karaoke and how it should normally have been from the start, they started practicing their instruments together, tacchon even started to develop a sense of humor. Maru can’t be totally cool but ther that being funny, people notices that he is a romantic. They are just too conspicuous not to be noticed. Normally, yasu as others would think, would be jealous, but then he just knew better, how they would secretly stare at each other admiringly before. anyway, he has subaru.
Maru and tacchon were lying on the lakeside waiting for the sunset. “ne maru, do you think we can be like this forever?” tacchon asked. “eh? What do you mean?” maru replied confused. “I mean, friends like this.”
“aa, I think so, why not?” maru let out a soft chuckle, “ we won’t be, if we will be..”
“more than friends.” Tacchon added pretending to joke. Maru looked tacchon in the eyes. “tatsuyoshi.” They held hands as the sun set.
