Titel: exchange sweet nothings
Fandom: Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
Pairing: Houjou Emu / Kujou Kiriya
The CR had always been a little different than the other stations at the hospital. It might have been the DoReMiFa Beat Arcade corner or personalities like Poppy who brightened up this place. Today however the station had been extra lively.
Nico had returned from America for a short visit and brought (beside Taiga obviously) a friend from the states with her. As a matter of fact said friend was born in the states, raised in Japan and was now studying across the ocean again. It was bit complicated and Emu had obviously received a much-summarized version of her circumstances, but at least there was no communication barrier between them.
Nico’s friend was an outspoken and openhearted person and immediately hit it off with Poppy. Both of them were talking excitingly with each other about this and that and at some point, Poppy invited her for a round of the new demo version of DoReMiFa Beat VR and wow, the new girl was good. Really, really good. Emu was honestly impressed and watched their gaming session with genuine interest. The girls were gradually raising the difficulty and their new friend didn’t have any problems keeping up with the fast and upbeat rhythm of the songs. At some point Poppy – clearly exhausted and out of breath – had to take a break while the other one was still going on for a few more tracks. Her stamina and reflexes were amazing and Emu wondered who would emerge victorious if she ever decided to play against Nico seriously.
“Hmmm~? What is this, should I be jealous?” Two hands padded Emu on the shoulder from behind, a gesture the pediatrician had not only grown accustomed to but also fond of.
“How serious are you? Because depending on your answer I might punch you.”
Emu leaned back in the chair, resting his head on Kiriya’s chest. Both doctors kept their eyes on the girls; Nico was now joining the party for another round (her efforts to make Taiga join in as well were in vain, but at least he watched them play without complaining too much).
“Well, guess I’ll forgive you this time.” Kiriya sighed dramatically and put his arms around Emu, obviously holding back laughter.
“Someone’s generous today, huh.”
Chuckling, the lovers exchanged a quick kiss, unnoticed by the eyes of the other people in the room.
