Chapter 1: Someone New
It was 6:30 pm and a Friday, Choromatsu had been getting ready for a Nya-chan concert that he had eagerly been wanting to attend.
He buttoned up his shirt and looked into the mirror, "Nobody is going to ruin my night!" He swooned, grabbing his cap. "Today it's just me and Nya-chan.." He caressed it, deeply sighing. He smiled and put it on. "Yes! Nothing is going to go wrong!" He fist-bumped the air.
Choromatsu walked downstairs. The brothers noticed he was in a good mood. His obsession over that idol was annoying but it was honestly nice seeing him enjoy something. His older brother felt like teasing him today though. He didn't want him to have so much fun without him. Hey, they are brothers after all.
Osomatsu laughed when he saw him all dressed up. It reminded him of how girls dressed up so fancy with their big skirts. He stood up and crossed his arms, facing him. He lazily leaned to the side. "Going to see that Nya-chan again?~ Does my little brother wanna lose his virginity?" He mockingly rubbed his nose.
"It's okay, you can tell us, my dear brother! Nothing beats true love!" Karamatsu butted in and leaned onto the window.
Ichimatsu cursed at Karamatsu and Todomatsu rolled his eyes. He continued texting on his phone and giggling. He didn't care about what his brothers did and ignored them. And Jyushimatsu always did his own thing, nobody understood him but Ichimatsu so they let him be.
Choromatsu gritted his teeth. He definitely didn't need Osomatsu teasing him right now, not when Nya-chan was also holding a meet and greet. He looked away and frowned, "I don't need to tell you anything Osomatsu nii-san! You're not going to ruin my night so I'm walking away."
He quickly ran to the door and slammed it open, hurrying down the road in hopes Osomatsu wouldn't go after him.
"Hey! Don't leave your onii-chan talking to himself! Come back!" But he was already nowhere in sight.
Osomatsu shrugged his shoulders and laid down again, taking a quick snooze before they had dinner. He began dreaming of heading somewhere as well.
Choromatsu had barely made it there before the show had begun. The flashing lights almost blinded him but nevertheless, he was still excited to head in.
There were only seven or eight people in line. Everyone else already inside and watching a music video.
He pulled out his tickets and handed them to security. He blushed and ran to find a spot in the crowd. Everyone looked the same so it was confusing when it seemed like he passed them.
He decided to side between two average looking boys. Brown hair and eyes, just the norm. He felt relieved he found a spot though. Idol concerts were always so packed and especially if they're famous. Unfortunately, he didn't have time to think anymore when the lights started moving everywhere. People screaming loudly and chanting. Nya-chan appeared on stage.
"Nyan! Nyan! Nyan!" She shouted and everybody did too. She thanked her fans for being here and read a heartfelt speech. Everyone showing their support by staying quiet.
She finished by thanking her fans and with one final nyan, the show had started. Pop music playing, the lights flickering, and the people waving their glow sticks. It truly was an experience.
Time had gone by too fast. It just felt like time was stopped.
It had been an hour already and after a short break, someone had caught his eye. It wasn't a girl though, it was a man.
He appeared to have green hair with pink eyes, his turtleneck sweater was light green and his jeans were gray. He just stood out way too much for someone NOT to notice him. Choromatsu frowned and scratched his chin, he wondered if he was with someone.
He had never seen someone so colorful like him so naturally, he was curious. "It wouldn't hurt to ask who he is." He mumbled and so with that thought in his mind. He was going to talk to him. Maybe he'd end up making friends. He was at a Nya-chan concert after all. 'He definitely likes other idols!' Choromatsu smiled and with that in mind. He cheered even harder.
Everyone took off except for some people who had tickets for the meet and greet. Choromatsu was one of them and so was the green-haired guy. He was walking slowly to the stand and stood behind him. He was smiling softly and crossing his arms. While everyone else was talking, he stayed silent. He looked everywhere and often looked dazed.
Choromatsu peeked behind his shoulder. He only wanted to stare for a moment but he found himself admiring his appearance. He was about to stare for a bit longer until the guy caught Choromatsu staring at him. Their eyes locked, the other man's pink eyes stared into his brown ones. He couldn't seem to look away. He felt bewitched. He felt like he was in a trance.
The guy's white skin turned a light shade of red. He smiled warmly at him and turned away. He continued to gaze at him and hadn't snapped out of it until a security guard called him up. He sheepishly walked up to the stand and shook Nya-chan's hand.
He smiled shyly, "N-Nya-chan, it's so good to meet y-you again! I promise no one's here to disturb you."
She gasped and smiled nervously, "I'm so glad to see you again, nyan..." Her voice sounding shaky, she wanted to get rid of this guy quickly. "I hope you come again! And uh anyways, thanks for meeting with me!" She pointed at the countless merchandise she had, "Feel free to take anything you like! Max one thing, thank you nyan!" Hoping she could make Choromatsu back off and leave her alone.
He thankfully nodded and ran over to the desk, carefully picking out one thing. As soon as he was about to leave and turn the corner. He overheard Nya-chans' conversation with the strange guy. So he decided to hide behind a bush and eavesdrop. Hoping for some info on the green-haired guy.
"It's so good to see you again Nya. Your concert was amazing like always. I really enjoyed it." The mystery guy gleamed and held her hand. Nya-chan giggled and patted his in return. "It was all thanks to you Opine! Nyan!" He laughed and spoke quietly, leaning closer to her face. Nya-chan giggled and spoke into his ear.
He couldn't quite hear them but he had found out the man's name. Opine. A weird one but it really fits him.
"What are they talking about?" He mumbled, cupping his ear and leaning a bit closer.
Opine moved away from her, he smiled one last time and began to walk away. She waved goodbye and continued on with the next person.
And then Choromatsu pursued him, he walked steadily, keeping up with "Opine." Until he'd find the right moment to talk to him.
It was when he almost walked up to Chibita's oden stand that he decided to stop him. He sneakily walked up behind him and tapped his shoulder. Opine turned his head and stopped to face him. His smile gone but putting on a curious face.
"You're the one who was looking at me." His voice nothing but a whisper. Choromatsu scratched the back of his neck nervously, "Uh y-yeah! I'm sorry I stared at you, I didn't mean to." He frowned, feeling embarrassed.
Opine just looked at him, it was weird how humans always had these habits. It honestly surprised him sometimes.
"You don't have to apologize. I didn't mind you staring at me."
Choromatsu took a sigh of relief. He was so glad to know he didn't scare someone off. Especially someone who seemed to love idols like him. He was finally gaining something on his own. Totty never helped him gain popularity. "I know we just met but why don't you. Come over? We could discuss Nya-chan and other idol stuff!" He smiled and started to gleam. Excited that he was gonna be able to talk with someone.
And of course, Opine couldn't reject his newfound friend. He grabbed and shook Choromatsu's hand, "Yes! I'll come with you. Hm, Mr..?"
It had been a long silent walk to his house. Opine stayed quiet and looked around, he appreciated how peaceful it was. He had a busy life and sometimes he just wanted some peace and quiet.
Choromatsu didn't know why he wasn't talking though. He thought he did something wrong. Usually, people didn't like him that much. It was hard for him to make friends for being so low in the social pyramid. He's a NEET.
He frowned and put his head down. Opine looked down at him, confused as to why he was so sad. He pats his head, stroking his hair. "Why do you look so sad?" He blankly stared. Choromatsus head shot up and he backed away.
"I.." Choromatsu stopped talking and looked away. It was embarrassing to share his issues. He didn't feel as tough when he shared any of his weaknesses. So he smiled and put his head up, "Nevermind. Come on, we're almost there." He began to walk faster and Opine followed him until he stopped.
He turned corners and went everywhere until he finally slowed down. He frowned at the house and sighed. Mumbling to himself about the house's exterior. He clenched his backpack and looked behind him, "Please come in." He awkwardly smiled and opened the door. It was already 8 pm when he arrived and everyone was still up. The brothers welcomed him back and yawned.
Opine walked in next and everyone gasped. Todomatsu peeked from his cellphone, and his jaw dropped. Karamatsu chuckled, "I see you brought someone home brother!"
"WOW! WHO'S THAT?!" Jyushimatsu chimed in and running over to Opine. Shaking his hand violently and making him laugh. Ichimatsu just dismissed him and played with one of his many cats.
Osomatsu was laying down, he rubbed his eyes and yawned. He was sleeping until he got woke up. He hated it when people disturbed him while he was taking a nap.
He stood up and angrily frowned. "Hey! Didn't you guys know I was sleeping?! What's with all the noise?" His voice sounding a bit raspy. "What are all of you looking at?" He pushed through everyone and came face to face with pink eyes. He backed away and gawked at Opine. Attempting to think of something to say but all he could do was stare. He felt embarrassed and flustered. The world seemed to be stopping. He couldn't hear anything. And while he stood there frozen, everyone else raised a brow.
Todomatsu snickered. "Is he in love or something?" Karamatsu pushed his glasses up and pointed at Osomatsu. "I too understand what it's like to be in love! I have someone special as well!" Choromatsu crossed his arms, "It seems weird for Osomatsu nii-san to like a man. I've only seen him be interested in women." He walked over in front of him and snapped his fingers. With that, he returned to his normal self. He held his head and groaned, "I zoned out but don't think I didn't hear you guys!"
Osomatsu walked over to the couch and sat down. Opine observing him along the way. "I'm not gay like Karamatsu over there, I just zoned out, you know?"
Everyone laughed except Choromatsu. Who was actually questioning his sexuality.
Opine kept looking over at the red hooded matsu. Smiling warmly at him and Osomatsu trying his best to look away.
"It's already late so it's best to escort my guest out. It was a late visit but I know Opine enjoyed it." Choromatsu smiled proudly as he walked Opine over to the door. Everyone waved goodbye except Osomatsu. Quietly looking out the window he thought about what happened to him. Remembering those bright pink eyes in his memory.
Opine smiled and waved goodbye, "I hope we meet again, everyone. And," He paused and looked behind Choromatsu. "You too Osomatsu." He blushed and walked out. His footsteps audible and finally disappearing when the door closed. Osomatsu blankly looked over at it. Confusion was written all over his face and his brothers noticed. They didn't say anything else though and continued on with what they were doing.
The hours passed by, the time to go to sleep. Midnight and yet he was still on the couch while everyone snored. He had put on his pajamas but still recalling his encounter. Wondering when Opine and he would meet again.
Chapter 2: The First Concert
Osomatsu wants to go to Opines concert, but he seems to have no money and starts to scavenge for some. Until Choromatsu finally agrees to take him, and there he meets Opine for the second time.
(See the end of the chapter for notes.)
Osomatsu was thinking about Opine once more, it was only a couple of days since he last saw him. Although he didn't know much about him, his beautiful appearance captivated him. He didn't know how exactly but he just knew he needed to see him again.
"Maybe hang out a bit.. whatever friends do, I don't know!" Osomatsu mumbled and yawned, he flipped through the pages of his magazine. He stretched a bit and laid there with a confused face, "But how do I see him again? I only know his name.." He stood up and frowned.
Choromatsu walked into the living room and stared at Osomatsu, "What are you doing there frowning?" He sat down and started reading his idol magazine. Osomatsu smirked and sat down next to his brother, he stole the magazine and read through it. Choromatsu tried taking it away but his brother carelessly pushed him aside. He read the second page, "[Opine Meadows from the sensation 'Boys Generation' will be having a live solo concert on September 22nd! 8PM.]"
Osomatsu quickly stood up when he heard this and smiled, "This is perfect! I'll see Opine at that concert!" He ran to the door barefoot and laughed, "So long suckers!" but as he was about to leave Choromatsu stopped him. He sighed and dragged him angrily to the living room.
"Nii-san.. you do know that you have to buy tickets right? They're not letting you in for free! That's not how it works idiot!" He shook his head and looked over at Osomatsu. He stared at his brother confused, can he really not go in for free? Like isn't he already a friend of Opine's, he's sure he'll get in easily!
"Hey but aren't I Opine's friend? Can't I get a free pass if I'm like his super close friend and #1 fan?" He cocked his head, putting on a cocky face aswell.
Choromatsu just annoyingly looked at him, he grabbed the magazine and pointed at the prices for the tickets. "...Look! See how expensive they are? 10,540 yen!" The red hooded brother's jaw dropped, his attitude disappearing. He obviously didn't know Opine's concert tickets were that expensive, well maybe he was a high quality idol? Or some term that he didn't know. It didn't really matter when the tickets were a big budget!
He tapped the table and let out a sigh. Choromatsu looked away and continued to read his magazine. Occasionally squealing or pouting because he can't get the lastest Nya-chan merch. He laid there until Osomatsu made a weird noise.
"AHA!" He stood up celebrating and scooted over to his brother, poking him. "Hey Choromatsu-"
"Can you take me there?"
"Huh? Why not?!"
"Didn't you see how expensive it is?! I am NOT taking you there if you're only going to see him for his face!" He moved away from his pleading face to go to another room. Osomatsu tried following him but he slammed the door in his face before he could enter.
He crossed his arms and thought about ways he could earn money easily. He wasn't one to work so he sure as hell wasn't gonna start now. Or maybe he could just steal the money? Probably from Todomatsu, he was basically rich!
'That's how I'll do it,' He chuckled wickedly while rubbing his hands together. 'and I'll make sure he won't notice!'
He quickly ran to the kitchen where Todomatsu was at, he was playing games on his phone and giggling. Sitting at the table and enjoying his afternoon. But right as Osomatsu came over he stopped and eyed him. He went back on his phone as soon as he saw the smirk on his face. Swiftly typing at his screen.
Osomatsu came closer but he backed away. Pretending that he wasn't there. Until the cheek pulling snapped him out of it. He pouted and whined, "Osomatsu nii-san!! What do you want!" He slapped his hand away.
"Oh nothing.. just wanted to let you know that Karamatsu's messing with your things.. probably going through your porn stash." He smiled.
Todomatsu stood up and squealed, "He's doing WHAT?!"
"Going through your thin-"
Slam goes the door and Karamatsu screaming in the background.
He laughs and shakes his head, "It's so easy when your brothers a girl!" He starts to search around the kitchen, "Now time to find where the money is!"
He scavenges, he looks in the cupboards. 'Is this it?' He grabs a blue sparkly bag, it almost blinds him. 'Definitely not his.. Karamatsus! He probably has something in it!' He looks in the bag, moving stuff around, he finds ten dollars. 'This is really it?! At this rate I might as well act homeless!' He makes a sad face but still puts the money in his pocket.
Once again, he searches. Searches through everything else and found nothing.
'Of course Todomatsu wouldn't hide his money here! Probably somewhere no one would expect.'
He sneakily goes to the bathroom while hearing Todomatsu scolding Karamatsu.
"Didn't I say for no one to go through my stuff?! Do you guys not understand, are you stupid!" He yelled and tapped his foot repeatedly. Karamatsu nervously apologizes, "A-Ah, but buraza, I would never go through your private life. Like I know you wouldn't go through mine." He grinned but Todomatsu just stared at him with anger. He scolded him again and again.
Osomatsu smirking in the bathroom, he searches behind the mirror, goes through pills, bandaids, etc. And he still couldn't find anything.
'Where does he even hide it, that weasel!' He angrily bends down to the floor and searches. He touches a small coin purse behind the toilet. 'Aha! Todomatsus coin purse!' He snatches it and stands up, immediately seeing that wasn't Tottys. It was in fact Choromatsus. He scrunched his nose up, looking at the design. 'Is this that Rika he was meeting? The idol? God I don't know about idols or anything but damn she's hot!' He digs his fingers in and pulls out thirty dollars.
'Awesome,' he thinks to himself. 'I have fourty now! I just need sixty more!' He hastily puts the coin purse behind the toilet and runs out, hoping to have let no evidence. Although the only evidence was him putting his dirty little fingers in to grab the money.
He goes to the living room and finds Jyushimatsu there. Swinging around his baseball bat and laughing.
Osomatsu grins at him, "Hey Jyushimatsu, what are you doing here?"
The other brother waved at him, moving over to him. "I'm looking for baseballs!!.." He started to move around, "And Ichimatsu nii-san! Where is he?" He looked under some pillows and blankets, Osomatsu stared at him. "Nah, he's probably out, go check outside or something.." He stopped for a minute and thought, 'Would he give me money? I bet he would, I mean, why not!'
Jyushimatsu nodded and started to walk out, but Osomatsu stopped him. He looked behind his shoulder, "Eh?"
"Jyushimatsu," He whispered and put his head down. Trying to look sad so that maybe he would pity him. He talked at full speeds, "Can I borrow some money? I mean you don't need it right? I can return it later yeah? Can you give me twenty yen-"
Jyushimatsu threw him five cents and ran, "Bye nii-san!!" And he was out of sight.
"Five cents?! I am not going to that concert.."
Osomatsu clutches the pennies, Choromatsu watched him behind the door, 'He really does want to see that idol,' he took his secret coin purse outta his pocket and took one hundred out. 'Only this time, I've wanted to see Opine too anyways!' He came out and coughed, "Osomatsu nii-san."
He looked behind his shoulder and at Choromatsu, he was holding the money in his hands. 'One hundred yen! I'm saved!' He grinned happily. "Choromatsu! Is that for me~" He tried to grab it outta his hands but Choromatsu dodged, which led to him falling down, he groaned. He looked up at the money.
"I'm giving it to you but I'm going to come too." He crossed his arms. "I'm monitoring you as well, what if you do something gross AGAIN? That's not gonna happen." Osomatsu stood up on his feet and put his arm around his brother. He rubbed his head, "Aw thanks little bro! That's nice of you but.." He pulled away and shrugged, "When is it again?"
"Nii-san! You want to go so badly and you forget!" He picks it up from the table and points to the date, September 22nd.
Osomatsu had forgotten with all the ruckus. He scratches his head, "Ok I get it! We have to get ready then," He went to the stairs and looked at his brother. "I'm gonna look my best, watch me! Opine's even gonna give me that free pass!" He stormed off to put on his best clothes, he wanted to look nice to his first concert.
Choromatsu smiled. 'Hope this goes well.. unlike that one time..' He shivered and then went upstairs as well.
Osomatsu and Choromatsu walked and walked, they had no car so they were going super slow. And it was getting tiring for the both of them.
"Choromatsu when are we gonna be there? It's 7:30 and I'm getting tired." He yawned and tucked his hands in his pockets. Choromatsu sighed and looked around, "Don't get too tired, you're going to be experiencing something amazing!" He cupped his cheeks and closed his eyes. "The music, costumes, lights, everything! It'll be so amazing Osomatsu nii-san!" Osomatsu looked at him and laughed, "Is there gonna be hot babes as well or what?"
Choromatsu just stared at him and rolled his eyes, they walked in silence.
Until Choromatsu finally stopped at a flashy entrance.
Posters of Opine's face plastered all over the building. People were still coming, people with tickets were going in and others paying right then and there.
Osomatsu was star-struck. His mouth wide open, "Hey, I didn't know idols were so-" He stopped talking and looked over at Opine. He was taking pictures with fans. He wanted to go meet him so badly, he rushed over to him.
Choromatsu was looking at his phone. "Ok so Osomatsu nii-san, the first thing we're gonna do is-" He saw that Osomatsu wasn't next to him anymore, he started to panic. He looked over at the entrance, but the amount of people going in was too much. He started to walk around in hopes Osomatsu hadn't done anything bad ALREADY. He knew how crazy his brother could get when excited.
But he wasn't doing anything bad. Osomatsu was running over to Opine. He was zooming past everyone and almost knocked over a group of teenage girls. But he ignored them and called out his name. "Opine? Opine!"
Opine looked up from his booth, he saw a red hoodie and a familiar face. He smiled warmly at the figure running towards him. He stood up and ran towards him too.
Osomatsu smiled wide when he saw the piercing pink eyes, he got distracted though and tripped. Luckily enough, somebody catched him, and that somebody was Opine.
"Osomatsu! You came to my concert, I didn't know you were coming though, whys that?" He looked down at him, his face flushed.
"You didn't give me your number," He smirked and looked up at him.
"Oh yeah! And Choromatsu is here too." He pointed over at the confused boy at the entrance, who was still looking around. Opine giggled and helped Osomatsu gain his balance.
"Did you guys pay already? I was going to let you in for free." He looked over at the paying booth. Osomatsu shook his head, "Nah we haven't paid! But for free? You sure letting this nice man in for free is safe? I mean I could steal your girl."
Opine laughed and pat his head, "I don't have a girl Osomatsu." He whispered. To which he reacted with a blush, covering his face. 'Why did he say that so quietly though? Is he trying to tell me something?' He thought but Opine interrupted him.
He grabbed the red hooded mans hand gently and pointed over at the main lobby, "Let's go.." and then he yelled over at Choromatsu, "You too Choromatsu!"
He ran over to them and started yelling at his brother, ranting about the safety of not losing your way in idol concerts. But Osomatsu ignored him as well, he stared at the back of Opines head. His green hair blowing in the wind. He thought about how soft it would be if he touched it. He thought about how nice it would be if he could kiss him.
'Kiss him?' He suddenly realized what he was thinking about. 'But I'm not.. I'm not gay right?' He frowned to himself and just kept walking.
'I'm really not gay right?'
