Can’t relate

Chapter Text


Ahhh for God’s sake Nozaki what stupid shit do you keep making me doooo?!?! We have to meet up without using our phones? Just whyy! Mikoshiba grimaced as he walked into the figurine shop. 

Just then Nozaki called and asked for a hint as to where he was. 

Doesn’t this just defeat the purpose? OI?!

”I’m surrounded by a bunch of babes in swimsuits.” Mikoshiba exclaimed with a smug look for himself 

“Go somewhere else.” Nozaki stated flatly.

”W-why?! You don’t even know where i am!” Mikoshiba shouted as anger started to build up.

”Just leave that place.” Nozaki swiftly hung up. 

“Fuck that i just saw a figurine i want.” Mikoshiba rushed towards the discounted figurines. 

He immediately spotted the one he wanted but quickly faced a major dilemma— there were two versions! The limited and normal version. He took out his phone to call Sakura to ask for advice; after all, a difference in underwear was major for a figurine. Even if both were pathetically cheap, he couldn’t splurge on both versions. 
Expecting to bombard Sakura in haste and ask for advice, he was instead met with a deep, mellow and monotonous voice. 
“Miko?” Rei answered the call in an almost raspy tone.

”U-uh Rei?! Why’d you pick up?” Mikoshiba’s heart skipped a beat. He panicked and felt his face heat up. The first time i call her and it’s like this? Wtf is with my luck?! 

“Uh you called. Didn’t know I shouldn’t have picked up.” Rei sounded confused. Is he a tsundere or just high? She thought, slightly annoyed as she had woken up from her nap to receive his call.

“And w-what’s with calling me Miko!” He shrieked. Asfghfkjfhdk

He felt like his thoughts couldn’t come together and turned into a living tomato. 

“I was just too tired to say your full name. You woke me up idiot.” Rei started to get slightly annoyed but having him point out such a silly thing and sound so embarrassed as if they were in a shoujo manga made her chuckle out loud. “Anyways why did you call?” 
Mikoshiba jolted back on track and realised his true purpose of calling Sakura, or rather, Rei, which was to ask about which edition to buy. 

“Oh yea so basically there’s this figurine i NEED to buy but there’s two editions, the normal and limited. WHICH SHOULD I GET?!” he cried out in excitement. 
“What’re the differences though?” Rei questioned. 
“On the normal one, the panties are white but the limited one, the panties are polka dot!” 
Upon hearing this, Rei immediately burst out laughing. 
“For realllll? That’s why you called?” She couldn’t stop laughing at his absurd predicament before realising that she herself had been in a similar situation before. Oh fuck there was that one time with the gloves...

Her laughter came to an abrupt end and she cleared her throat before replying to Mikoshiba who sounded as if he were sobbing from awkwardness as he tried to string together random sounds to make words. 
“Sorry about that, uh, I’d recommend going with the limited edition. You can always buy the normal one later on if you really want it. No biggie.” 
“R-right..” Mikoshiba mellowed out and immediately cut the call, leaving Rei in a perplexed daze. 
“What the fuck? Not even a thank you? Jeeezz” she exclaimed out loud in vexation. 
“Should i just go back to sleep?” 
Before she could execute her idea, her mom called out to her from downstairs. 
“Get the hell up and go outside or something! You have Nozaki right? Stop being a shut-in!” 
Too tired to fight back, she lazily wormed out of bed and freshened up. As she was on her way to go outside to a cafe, her phone rang again. 
Sure am popular today aren’t I?

Tardily picking up her phone, she checked the caller id and saw it was Mikoshiba who called once again. 
What now? She rolled her eyes.

”U-umm... Kashima? I’m lost.” Mikoshiba started sobbing. “Hah?! Where are you?” Rei asked concerned. “Fuck i called you again?” Mikoshiba panicked. “No i called myself from your phone, are you high?” 
“N-no! I’ the train station...Nozaki and Sakura aren’t meeting up with me! I can’t even reach their cell.” 
“God what is that idiot even doing. I’m heading out right now and will be at the station within fifteen minutes. If you want you can just meet up with me.” Rei suggested casually.
