Pairing: Sakumoto, hints of others (Ohmiya for example)
Genre: romance, friendship
Disclaimer: I don't own them or anything else JE-related. But the story is mine of course^^
Summary: Raised in a rather conservative way Sho has learned to hide his emotions perfectly, building an indestructible wall around him. Whenever people are exchanging feelings, it makes him feel uncomfortable. But when he meets Jun, his perfect wall seems to crumble. And suddenly Sho realizes that he wants to be something for for Jun... a brother, a friend, or even more. With all his might Sho tries to break out from his shell, hoping that Jun will see and accept the person Sho really is.
Note: This is a little travel through Sho-Jun relationship from their debut till now.
Dedicated to: Originally requested by fog_dancer in THIS post. I had planned to make a One-shot out of it, but...suddenly... I found myself adding one chapter after another.
[Blow-job is some sort of cocktail/drink. To be exact it's a 'shot'. I just looked up its ingredients: Amaretto, Bailey's and Whipped Cream.]
When Sho watched Jun on stage, he felt proud. Jun was so amazing. He had worked so hard on his skills and on his weak points. And somehow he had passed Sho in quite some points. Jun was shining now.
It had bothered Sho once that Jun surpassed him in some points, because he had been afraid that Jun wouldn't look up to him anymore if he became better and better like that, but in the end... Sho simply felt proud about him.
Sho had to smile a bit when he thought of the young, shy kid Jun once had been. Now he was a grown-up, young man. So different to how he had been before. He was strong and self-confident. Hard-working and honest. Tall and good-looking. Not that the last point was important of course... Sho couldn’t care less about how pretty Jun had become. He was just a friend. A good-looking friend. Nino was also a good-looking friend after all. Just that Nino didn’t have these dark, piercing eyes and this bright smirk and this black curly hair… At that point Sho mostly stopped himself from thinking any further. Jun’s black curls and dark eyes were dangerous.
“Sorry.” Jun smiled a bit at Sho when he slipped past him into the shower. He dropped his shirt randomly on the floor, revealing his perfect upper body. Sho blushed at that sight. He couldn't help but stare.
Jun sighed a bit when he saw the other's glance. Sho was always like that... totally disliking any random attitude, especially when it was about him: Whenever Jun made out with Miki, Sho looked like jumping into his face. Or when he put his clothes off in front of the others, Sho would look bothered.
What did happen to them?
There had been a time when Sho was so understanding and encouraging towards him. But now this time was over. It was as if Sho couldn't forgive him for growing up and going his own path.
“Hey Sho-chan!” Aiba chirped, pulling Sho out of his thoughts.
Sho winced a bit, trying to pull his gaze away from Jun's beautiful back. Maybe it was ridiculous to call a back beautiful. But Jun's definitely was. The whole line from his neck to his waist was perfect. Long, a slight curve. His muscles and features were strong, making his upper body look manly.
It was simply a beautiful back.
“Sho-chan!” Aiba complained.
Sho coughed a bit. “Sorry, Aiba-chan.” Out of the corner of his eyes he could see how Jun was throwing him an inscrutable glance. Sho winced uncomfortably. Did Jun realize that Sho had been staring? Jun looked almost annoyed... But why?
Aiba smiled. “I'm going for dinner with Nino. Wanna come too?”
Sho smiled warmly at the invitation. “Thanks. But I'll be meeting my sister today... Sorry!”
Aiba smiled sadly. “Such a pity. But then next time, okay?”
It was later at night, when Sho walked home from the invitation of his sister, that he recognized a well-known figure right in front of him. Black curly hair, a perfect back… Sho tilted his head a bit when he saw how Jun walked down the street alone. He had pulled his black jacket around his shoulders tightly, his face hiding behind a huge scarf. Sho’s heart ached a bit. Somehow Jun looked so lonely...
He couldn't help it. He felt worried. Hence he did something he normally would have never done: He followed Jun.
Jun disappeared into a small club, making Sho sigh deeply. He wasn't that much into clubs and partying. But this here was Jun, so it was important. He fought back his dislike, smiling at the doorman and following Jun into the VIP sector. He found the other when he was just ordering a drink.
Jun blinked in confusion, staring at Sho in disbelief. “Sho-kun?” He shook his head as if the other was some kind of Fata Morgana. “You? Here?”
“Well...” Sho smiled as casually as possible. “I just passed this club and saw how you went into it. I thought it would be nice to chat with you a bit.”
Jun still stared at Sho in disbelief. Was that really stoic and clubs-are-dark-loud-dirty-and-cheap Sho standing in front of him? Jun shifted around a bit, a bright smile suddenly appearing on his lips. Despite of what he had actually intended to feel, his heart jumped at the sight of Sho standing in front of him. He pointed at the chair next to him. “Want to sit down?”
“Thanks.” Sho put his petticoat to his side, looking for the menu.
Jun grinned a bit. “Why do you even look for it?” He pulled an eyebrow up, looking at the older one teasingly. “It's always either a dry Martini or a good, old red vine for you.”
Sho blushed slightly. “Am I really always ordering the same thing? Am I that obvious?”
“Yes.” Jun chuckled. “But it's okay, really...”
Sho looked at the other carefully. Jun’s eyes were almost tiny now because he was grinning brightly. He looked almost cute. Jun got drawn into this picture for a moment, then he frowned. Damn, Jun had changed so many things about himself while the only thing Sho had managed to change till now was his temper. He had learned to control it... and it had been lots of work. But the moment he had snapped at Jun when Jun was still a kid, he had been so shocked himself that he couldn't go on without changing this flaw. But it was just one point. While Jun had changed so many things. Hence Sho grabbed the menu and when the waiter asked for his order, he took a deep breath, determined to show Jun what he was capable of. “One Blow Job please.” he said as straight-forward and self-confident as possible.
When the waiter had nodded his head politely and left, Jun pulled an eyebrow up. He smirked a bit, though Sho could clearly see some surprise in his eyes. Exactly what Sho had intended. He felt really glad that he could show Jun that he wasn't as boring as the latter thought he was.
“I can't believe you had the guts to order a 'Blow Job'.” Jun grinned. “I actually thought you wouldn't even say such a word out loud.”
Sho leaned back, smirking a bit. “Oh please, Jun. I love Blow Jobs...”
For a moment they both stayed quiet, then they burst into laughter. Jun smacked Sho's shoulder a bit while he was still laughing. His eyes were sparkling in a way Sho had never seen them before. And for a moment Sho could feel it... a thread that was connecting them. Laughing together and messing around with each other had made it appear. At least for a moment.
