A shipping olympics favorite, this round uses quotes of all sorts to fuel your creative endeavors.


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on July 21 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.

    • The quote can come from anywhere. Famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, your neighbor, etc.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Makoto & Rin). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Makoto/Rin). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

injury, blood
448 words

Practice had not ended well. He and Aoyagi had been practicing switching positions, and everything had been going as smoothly as it ever had. Until the last circuit.

He had slowed a split second too soon, and Aoyagi's wheel had clipped his as Aoyagi sprinted forward to pass. He could tell immediately that he wasn't going to be able to recover, and as he fell, he felt something sharp tear across the side of his leg.

The ground knocked the wind out of him, as he had known it would. By the time he caught his breath again, Aoyagi had regained control of his bike and dismounted, running to his side.

"Junta," he said, "I'm sorry."

"It's not your fault; I slowed down too soon."

"My pedal, when you fell…" Aoyagi trailed off and looked down. Teshima followed his gaze and barely fought down a gasp when he saw the blood running down his leg. Once he noticed the gash along his shin, the stinging, throbbing pain came to the forefront of his attention, and he felt slightly faint.

"Get Kinjou or Kanzaki-san," he said weakly, and Aoyagi nodded, squeezing his hand one last time before running back down the road.

It was only a couple of minutes before Aoyagi came running back with the rest of the team following close behind. Kinjou called an ambulance, and Aoyagi returned to his side, holding his hand the entire time.

At the hospital, he stared at the white tiles and fluorescent lights overhead and tried not to think too hard. His leg hurt, and he felt terrible knowing that he wouldn't be riding for at least a couple of weeks, especially when he and Aoyagi were just starting to ramp up training for their next race.

When the doctor came in and started working on his leg, doing something that made it burn even more, he couldn't keep the tears at bay any longer. He turned his head away, hoping his hair would hide his face.

"I'm sorry my bike hurt you, Junta," Aoyagi said from beside him. He risked looking back, and when he did, he saw tears in Aoyagi's eyes as well.

Twenty stitches later, he was released with a new pair of crutches and allowed to hobble out of the hospital. No one questioned it when he went home with Aoyagi that night.

Aoyagi's parents set out a futon for him in Aoyagi's room and left extra pillows with it to prop up his leg. As soon as they left, Aoyagi climbed out of his bed and joined Teshima on the floor. They fell asleep holding hands, and they woke the same way the next morning.

I'm glad you liked it! I will never pass up an excuse to write T2 being adorably sweet together.
