Titel: are (not) always straight
Fandom: Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
Pairing: Houjou Emu / Kujou Kiriya
“Ishikawa Saori, 9 years old, fractured leg and—”
Emu had left the canteen behind (it had been – once again – a very late lunchbreak) and was now on the way back to the pediatric ward, carefully studying the file of his next patient. The young girl had been involved in a car accident and suffered bruises, a broken leg and assumingly a concussion of the brain. The final results of her check-up were in and Emu was relieved to be the bearer of good news; no brain concussion was found, the patient was free to go home and come back for a checkup appointment in a couple of weeks.
Emu turned right at the next corner. A soft voice, which grew louder with each step he took, caught his attention. Before he knew it, the voice was fiercely complaining about someone’s lazy and aloof behavior. Out of curiosity (and concern), Emu followed the irritated voice and—
“Kujou-sensei I’m serious! No more games, be straight with me for once!”
“I don’t know what you mean, I’m always straight.”
—almost crashed into the wall next to him.
You say what now?
He covered his mouth with his right hand, trying to muffle his laughter. His other arm was holding out to his sides, desperately trying to calm himself down. Emu never knew both his stomach and back could hurt so much from laughing (or suppressing said laughs) until today.
Now if this wasn’t the biggest lie he ever heard.
Luckily, whoever left in a foul mood (all thanks to a certain coroner) didn’t pay Emu any attention. The pediatrician straightened up, swallowed the remaining fits of laughter and took a deep breath. The time had come to pay a certain someone a visit.
“Always straight, huh?” Emu teased.
“Emu, you…” Kiriya sighed and almost laughed at his bad luck. “Just for your information; I’m so not going to tip the lie jar for this.”
“Wouldn’t have asked you to anyway.”
