"Is Haiji your best friend?" Tobio asks.
"He's…" Kakeru leans back on his hands, and then says, "my boyfriend, actually."
It just feels like something he wants to tell Tobio. His cousin stares silently at him for an awkwardly long time, but Kakeru doesn't feel uncomfortable. If anything, this is normal for Tobio, he's realizing. He does wonder what Tobio will think.
"Huh," Tobio says, eventually, nodding like this makes sense. "That's why you were being so mushy."
Kakeru swats at his shoulder. "I was not."
"Yeah, you were," Tobio says.
"Is that why you're too nervous to text Hinata?" Kakeru counters. "You're afraid of being mushy?"
Tobio's mouth falls open. "What?!"
In the spring following his first year at Kansei, Kakeru visits his family in Miyagi for the first time since he was a child. He's got a lot of worries over facing the upcoming year now that Haiji has graduated—but it turns out that makes him the perfect person to help his cousin Tobio understand his own feelings for a certain sunny teammate.
