Akaashi’s mouth was dry, and he desperately hoped that Kuroo would be the first to speak up.
Thankfully, he was.
A hand was stretched out towards Akaashi, the politeness ingrained in him making him reach out to shake it before his brain really caught up to what was happening.
“Hi Akaashi, my pal really didn’t do your looks justice. You’re much prettier than how he described.”
Akaashi sighed, releasing the breath of air he hadn’t noticed he was holding. He smiled a bit, releasing Kuroo’s hand from his hold and looking up at him.
“Thank you, he didn’t tell me you’d look so...unique.”
