It was only a matter of time before they would start taking on new employees, all of them knew it. The busiest times are rough when it's the four of them, they could only work so many days a week, and if they all wanted to take a vacation somewhere together as boyfriends should, they didn't want to have to close the store.

So they put out applications for new hires, said you have to be over 21 and wouldn't laugh at the sight of a dildo thicker than your own arm, and waited. They probably only needed three, maybe four more people, and they don't expect too many people to apply.

It took a single weekend before Oikawa was faced with an inbox of 237 unread emails.

"Oh." Hanamaki said, looking over one shoulder while Iwaizumi gave a long whistle looking over his other. "Guess we better get started on a vetting system."

"You mean besides references and reading all of these," Oikawa groaned, squinting at his computer screen; "like a normal person?"

"Trust us." Matsukawa chimed in, wrapping his arm around Hanamaki's shoulders, both of them grinning. "You pick the handful you like the most, and we'll take it from there."

Iwaizumi and Oikawa shared one of their Looks, the ones they shared when both of them knew something stupid was about to happen, but didn't know what or how to stop it. It broke with a sigh, Oikawa opening the first email and Iwaizumi looking back at Hanamaki and Matsukawa. "Whatever, just get back to work."



It takes a week to whittle 237 to 15, and the lot of them were called in for an actual interview, to see how they were in person. Iwaizumi looks over the large calendar they had posted up in the back office with his coffee, debating how best to split up the interviews best between them and get things started, when Oikawa came up behind him to rest his head on his shoulder.

"We're doing all 15 at once." he says, lingering exhaustion in his voice. "Makki and Mattsun are giving a sex-ed class."

Iwaizumi raises an eyebrow, "And you're letting them do this to people we haven't even hired yet because?"

"It's a good idea. We can figure out if they're lying about what they know, see who laughs when Mattsun talks about cockrings. It'll help pick the best people - oh Iwa-chan, don't make that face." Oikawa kisses his cheek, then the corner of his scowl. "We can poke in too, make sure they're behaving and get a sense of the people ourselves. Okay?"

"Fine." Iwaizumi grumbles, wrapping his arm around Oikawa's waist to pull him into a full morning kiss.



Two hours later, he wishes he hadn't acquiesced so easily to sleepy Oikawa, because he finds a single index card placed on his desk with red and blue stick figures in a very compromising position. One that he now does know, despite what a, no, a pair of total assholes thinks.

Iwaizumi storms out of his office fuming, and before he even shouts their names Hanamaki and Matsukawa have bolted out the front door.

“No, something isn’t right…”

“Am I doing something wrong?”

“Just hold still, let me look at you for a second.”

The Internet Age came with its own benefits and downfalls, Suga learned that pretty quick.

On the one hand, it made starting his own business much easier than he thought it would be. Fashion was a hard industry to get a foothold in, especially when you didn’t have all the connections that could get the wheels turning. If it had been thirty, twenty, even ten years prior Suga would have been dead in the water before he could even start. Now all he needed was a few designs, a reasonably priced supplier, a domain, and a camera to get things started. Technology was a beautiful thing.

At the same time, though, it meant everything was up to him. He couldn’t afford a lot of help at the beginning, so what would usually be a team effort became a one man job. Up until a certain point, he’d even had to model the clothes himself which took even more time away from actually designing.

But then, Daichi had stumbled into his life.

Their first meeting hadn’t started with the intention of forming a professional relationship, in fact he was pretty sure Kuroo had introduced them in a half-hearted attempt at hooking them up. But before anything like that could even be put into motion, it had come up that Daichi was trying to get jobs to fill up his portfolio (since agencies were very picky and he’d decided to get into modeling very late-game) and that led naturally into Suga discussing his own line.

“I really can’t afford to pay you a lot…” he’s started, tentatively, “I mean, I know experience dollars don’t pay the bills, but I’m still trying to get things started.”

“No, no I completely get it. That’s why I still have a day job,” Daichi grinned, “just don’t leave me behind when you go to Fashion Week.”

Suga snorted, “Right, the first ticket I get to New York, I’ll make sure you’re on that runway.”

“I expect that in my contract!”

And actually, since working with Daichi, he’d seen nothing but positives. His clothes were selling much better, and if sales kept going up he could probably afford a real photographer to handle that part of the job. It would really free up his schedule and he could focus on what he really wanted to do.

But then...that would mean a little less time with Daichi, and even Suga had to guiltily admit that that would kind of suck.

“Well?” Daichi asked again.

“The jacket’s not sitting right, hold on.” Suga strode over, stepping around electrical cables and onto the floordrop. He reached over and started trying to straighten the collar of the jacket, his camera swinging between the two of them, “Maybe it looks better popped, you look too stiff with it down.”

“Won’t I look like a tool if it’s popped?”

“You could never look like a tool Daichi...at least not on my watch.”

“I’m touched,” Daichi let Suga mess with the jacket some more, “...hey, Suga?”

“Yea-mmph!” If Suga had expected the kiss, he probably would have been a little less awkward about returning it. The angle was all wrong and their noses bumped against each other. When Daichi pulled away, Suga pulled him back in by the collar he was still holding, “Oh, no you don’t.”

The second kiss was much better than the first, their heads tilted on opposite sides and Daichi’s hands landed on his hips. It wasn’t particularly deep or hot, really it was very chaste, but it still was enough to make butterflies flutter in Suga’s chest.

“Do you know how long I’ve wanted to do that?” Daichi asked when they finally broke.

“Hm, since the day we first met? Trust me, it’s exactly the same.”

“I’m going to kick past me for waiting so long. Can we finish up? I want to take you out.”

“I don’t know, I don’t think you can take me anywhere nice with all those exposure dollars I’m paying you in.”

“You ass. Pay me.”

Suga barked out a laugh and walked back to his previous spot. He turned and snapped a picture, “See you at Fashion Week.”

“Work it, baby!” The photographer called out to Heath who smiled in return and canted his hips up lazily. The translucent scarf wrapped around his waist as a belt slid down towards his shoulders, caressing the lithe muscles of his midriff, and the photographer snapped another quick shot.

“Gorgeous, baby, just gorgeous!” She enthused. By her side, Shauna sipped a coffee. She’d done her stint earlier and now was just hanging around since she was Heath’s ride. The makeup was stripped off her face and her long blond hair was pulled back with Heath’s headband.

He couldn’t even glare at her for stealing it since he was supposed to be radiating ‘pouty sex appeal’. He wasn’t sure what pouty sex appeal had to do with selling furniture but the company had insisted on having all three siblings come in for the ads and his manager had said with what they were being offered, they should definitely do it.

“Diane,” the photographer called out, “Carry that vase over to Heath. Place it on his stomach, tickle his nose with one of the orchids.”

His nose?! Heath fervently hoped that he wasn’t allergic to orchids. He knew there was some type of flower that made him sneeze but not which one.

Diane glided across the floor to him, her wispy robe seeming to float around the floor-length black balldress she was wearing underneath. She had to pause every few steps for the photographer’s sake, standing still in towering high heels that Heath couldn’t believe anyone wore, let alone wore in their own house.

The vase was cold and heavy when Diane put it on his stomach and Heath sucked in a quick breath, narrowing his eyes at her to express the complaint he couldn’t voice for fear of ruining the pout that the photographer had taken ten minutes to arrange to perfection. Having her poke his lips with a pencil until he pouted properly had been an annoying experience.

Diane smiled down at him angelically and lifted a purple orchid free from the vase. As instructed, she leaned down and coquettishly tickled his nose with the orchid, lifting a hand to her mouth as if she were giggling. Heath held his breath against the ticklish sensation, hoping it would be over soon.

“Perfect, darlings, perfect!” The photographer said, coming in close and kneeling to get some close ups.

Heath wrinkled his nose and sneezed right over her camera lens.

It started with his goggles.

“Eh, did anyone see my goggles?” Nishina pulled out his clothes and towel from the cubby a second time, searching for them, but still didn’t see them. “Everyone, check your goggles for me, make sure you have your own.”

The problem about being a sponsored high school swim team was that everyone had to use the same equipment. This was exactly why they labeled their jackets, racing suits, caps, and goggles to make sure that mix up didn’t happen. Or, well, happen often.

“Maybe you left them at home?” Ichitora suggests, leaning against his back and looking in the cubby too. “It wouldn’t be the first time, dearest captain.”

“Yeah, yeah. Rub it in more.”

“Here.” Another pair of the familiar goggles dangled in front of his eyes, Ichitora clearly labeled on the inside of the strap. “Use my extras for the day. Just don’t forget to loosen them again since you love to kill your eyes.”

Nishina grabbed the goggles, rolling his eyes. “At least I never have to worry about my goggles filling up with water off my start and having to deal with it the entire race. Unlike someone else. And by someone else, I mean you.”

“Oi!”

And the missing goggles were immediately forgotten in favor of dodging Ichitora’s tackle, the familiarity of wrestling his best friend on the floor of the locker room comforting as he snapped the waistband of his suit in retaliation.

By the time they finally stopped, the rest of the team had already left for the pool. But sitting on the bench were a pair of goggles, the obvious Nishina standing out in his unique red ink, being the only one on the team to use the color.

“I guess someone found them?” Ichitora commented and Nishina shrugged. They had only been wrestling for a few minutes and the team knew they could break them up any time. Something seemed off.

“I guess. I’ll worry about it later. Coach is going to kill us for being late.”

-

He ended up worrying about it the next day. And the next. And the next.

Everyday, Nishina had something missing. Sometimes, it was just a towel, or his extra shirt, or his jacket, all things that weren’t too big a deal because he would just wear his school uniform home. It was the days that his suit or goggles were missing (goggles were the number one thing usually missing to the point that Ichitora walked into every practice and threw his spares at Nishina before changing) that made things hard.

Their coach chewed him out the third time his suit was missing, saying that the captain should be the one setting the standard for team responsibility and he walked out of the office with his ears ringing. It wasn’t like he was never yelled at before, but the team winced in sympathy as he tried and failed to smile at them.

“Looks like you’re having a rough time, captain~” Taira skipped up next to him, always full of so much energy. Nishina never understood backstrokers. “Any luck on finding your suit or goggles?”

“No, but my replacements should be in today.” He slumped on a bench behind the blocks, waiting for their manager to come over with today’s practice. “Shouldn’t you be stretching?”

Taira only smiled that wide mischievous smile of reeked of trouble.

“Taira…”

“I already stretched with Reo!”

Fujikawa Reo was clearly stretching with another swimmer at the moment and Nishina raised an eyebrow.

“I mean. I stretched by myself.”

His eyebrow reached higher.

“Okay, I skipped stretching. But!! I was just concerned about you because uh, the whole team sorta heard you getting yelled at and it’s not like it’s your fault that your stuff keeps disappearing and reappearing. Whoever is doing it certainly wants your attention.”

“Attention, huh? That’s one way of putting it.” He crossed his legs and leaned against the wall. “Whatever, things will be sorted out soon and whoever is behind it, maybe they’ll finally let me live. Inter high is soon and I don’t need this stress. If they want my attention, they can just ask for it.”

“So can I have your attention? Will you look at me?” Taira’s voice turned serious and the wide smile dropped off his face.

Nishina felt his eyes widen in shock, not expecting a response like that. But when Taira started laughing, he let out the breath he didn’t realize he was holding.

“You should have seen your face, captain!! I totally got you!” Taira kept laughing as he walked away to his normal target, now that Fujikawa had finished stretching.

Shaking his head at the team and swimmers that he lead, Nishina watched him start to bother Fujikawa until something caught his eye.

Tucked into the waistband of his suit were Taira’s goggles, an odd flash of red on the strap.

***

Back Pocket

Ogata was doing this as a favor. He didn't know what kind of favor yet, he was just keeping it in his back pocket, but he thought it had to be a big one, the legally and morally questionable kind that got a rich client off easy. The problem was Judge Touya Kouyou didn't really do legally and morally questionable. It was the whole reason he never worked out as Ogata's mentor.

Not that Ogata was interested in breaking the law. No, he just thought the law was a starting point in negotiations. There was something about bending it that was like art to him. Bending it wasn't even right; the law was a ball of clay and Ogata wanted to shape it into something that pleased him.

Ogata was really into aesthetics.

So. That unspecified favor. That was how he wound up hiring Touya Akira, the judge's son, fresh from his bar exam. He'd done an internship with some nonprofit, which was definitely not the usual route Ogata's junior partners took, but he'd graduated top of his class from a big ten school, so he clearly wasn't a slouch. It was a calculated risk, and Ogata liked those odds.

But the thing was, Touya Akira was really, really fresh-faced. And eager. And always asking Ogata for guidance. And it was annoying.

"Get a haircut," Ogata said off-handedly one day, after Akira came into his office loaded down with perfectly formatted legal briefs for Ogata to review.

The next day Akira's hair was shorter, which made him look older, but also made Ogata realize how obedient Akira could be. That he could work with.

"Come for a drink with me tonight," Ogata said, instead of checking Akira's petitions.

"Oh." Akira blinked and looked down at his shoes. "I kind of have plans with a friend of mine?"

"Do you or don't you?" Ogata asked. He propped his feet up on the desk.

Akira put his shoulders back and straightened his spine. "I do. Shindou's busy, we don't see each other much—"

Ogata was bored. "Bring him along," he said dismissively. Akira nodded and then dismissed. He was sickeningly good at doing what he was told.

Over drinks, Ogata met Akira's old friend, expecting an eager Akira clone, but it turned out Shindou was his exact opposite. Ogata loved and hated him all at once, the way he could tease Akira just right until his cheeks were glowing pink, and how he didn't bend to anything Ogata suggested, even though he let Ogata buy him a mess of drinks. Shindou had to leave before Akira did, and he ruffled Akira's new hair before he went.

"Don't let him keep you out too late," Shindou told Ogata, and grinned.

"How do you two know each other?" Ogata asked, lighting up a cigarette outside a little while later. He'd gone out by himself, but Akira had followed along seconds after, wobbling like a baby colt. Or like a drunk guy who wasn't used to it.

"Go Club in high school," Akira said. He loosened his tie and leaned up against the brick, closing his eyes and tilting his head up to the sky. "We're rivals. Eternal rivals," he added, so full of feeling that Ogata suddenly burned. He bet Akira wasn't so obedient with Shindou.

"Akira," Ogata said, "open your eyes."

Akira did.

Ogata took a drag, leaned in, and pressed their mouths together. Akira opened his mouth, out of surprise or just reflex, Ogata didn't know or care. But he let Ogata's smoke fill his mouth; Ogata watched as Akira broke away and choked. When he was done, Ogata pulled him back in and kissed him again and again and again, until Akira's mouth was red and raw. Then Ogata shoved him away and told him not to be late to the office the next day.

Akira probably wouldn't tell his father about this, which was good. Ogata really liked having a favor in his back pocket.

When Sousuke entered the living room, dripping wet, Rin looked up from the book he’d been reading and wrinkled his nose at him.

“You smell of wet dog,” he informed Sousuke, tugging the blanket further up his chest.

“That’s because I am wet,” Sousuke said, peeling off his jacket and kicking off his sodden sneakers. “Soaking, in fact. You don’t need to breathe anyway. Just stop smelling.”

“Or you could take a shower with shampoo and then you’d stop smelling,” Rin said, smirking at his own pun.

“You smell more than I do anyway.”

“I do not!”

“You smell dead, Rin. Like you’re a couple of hours away from rotting.” Sousuke hopped on one foot, then the other, tugging off his socks. A small puddle was starting to form under him so with a sigh, he shucked off his jeans.

An appreciative wolf-whistle came from the couch which Sousuke responded to by turning around. There. Rin could stare at his wet ass if he wanted to. Sousuke was chilled to the bone and in no mood to play.

“Maybe you’re right,” Rin said while Sousuke was busy trying to convince his t-shirt to let go of his skin. Sousuke yanked at the t-shirt and in his aggravation, his claws popped out briefly and tore the fabric. Damn. It was still three days to full moon and he was already having trouble controlling which body he was in?

“I do think I’m suffering a little rigor mortis…” Even with his back turned to Rin, Sousuke could imagine the eyebrow waggle that Rin must be doing. He huffed, dropping the t-shirt to the ground and glancing down at his very wet, very clingy black boxers. He wouldn’t trail too much water across the flat if he kept those on while he walked to the bathroom, right?

“Sousuke?” Rin asked after a few seconds when Sousuke didn’t reply to his innuendo. “Is the rain making your shoulder play up again?”

“I’m fine,” Sousuke grunted. He wasn’t going to complain about the pain where the stupid hunter had managed to shoot him with a silver bullet. He was lucky the asshole had bad enough aim he’d missed the heart.

“I’ll run you a hot bath,” Rin said, getting off the couch with his usual liquid grace. “And put just a little lavender oil in it.”

“Thanks, Rin.” Sousuke smiled at his boyfriend, dark mood temporarily lifted. Vampire or not, Rin was the best part of his life.

first up, what a great prompt!! Chihaya as muse is such an evocative idea because of the whole beauty-in-vain business versus her intensity in karuta, which is how Kana would know her. haha, that said, i went with a meme-y(???) idea because in my head, Chihaya smiles and Kana's knees get weak/sonnets appear to her fully-formed. just... the idea that Kana has journals full of poems about that particular summer afternoon in gym when their eyes met and Chihaya smiled like Kana is the only one she can see and...and Kana ended up writing poems upon poems about that

um yeah, click the thumbnail for the original huge image! and thanks!
