Before then, he would normally lose several pounds a week, but ever since the night he'd snuck out, his weight loss could only be described as alarming. And so he continued to try and grasp sleep, expecting nothing from the noise. He ascended those familiar steps, said hello to the familiar faces, and rounded that familiar corner that he knew would lead him to Bokuto's room. He had so many things he'd wanted to do with him, so many things he'd wanted to say, but all of those things seemed to have fallen away once the moment had finally come. You shouldn't be-". "That's interesting...". He turned the chair so that he was now facing Bokuto from the front. It was his attempt at brightening the mood, or "being funny," as some called it, but alas, his words had fallen flat on the ground as he received another silent reply from Bokuto. He held onto the IV stand with one hand and Akaashi's hand with his other as he hobbled over to the window. Bokuto would wince and snap back to reality the way someone would when they dreamt they were falling. The sounds of their sneakers squeaking against the gym floor was so memory inducing, it caused Akaashi to take a moment and reminisce on the old days, as if doing so would take him back in time to when he'd play volleyball every single day after school. "Watch it." He stared at Bokuto and could only nod with whatever it was he thought he was agreeing with. "Sh...ut up." Akaashi frowned. Why?" I'm trying to detach myself. Bokuto's breathing was quiet, and his hand never really remained still for a long time. After a moment, he finally spoke. "I thought you were waiting for the snow. Akaashi cast a weary look in Bokuto's direction, gave a nod, and continued on his way until he was out of the building. ", "Yeah... Yeah. "I was struggling. The smile on Bokuto's lips grew just a little more, signifying that he'd answered yes to Akaashi's question. It wasn't long before Akaashi had leaned his head on Kuroo's shoulder, as he, too, fell victim to the sorrow that slowly ate him alive. He sighed. Akaashi woke up to the feeling of sunlight against his face. Pretty much the only thing wrong with me is that I can't sleep!]. His eyes lighting up, Bokuto straightened his back and fished his hand into his pocket. He was nothing more than a blanket with a head. "I would hope so." Akaashi moved his head to the side and touched his forehead to Bokuto's neck. He knew full well the name of the disease he had. • This was his way of saying he was feeling alright. That was, until he saw a familiar face. It had been two months since Bokuto's visit over his home, and ever since then, Akaashi found that making his way to the hospital had become a daily routine for him. I'll have to watch it again.". It's ridiculous.". Three times, Bokuto jolted awake involuntarily, and three times, he covered his eyes with his forearm and heaved a quiet sigh. "What?". Bokuto's eyes widened. In time, Kuroo and Kenma found that it was time for them to make their way back home. "It's just how I am. "Don't call me that." He remained in place silently. This was their unspoken communication. He knew that once they found out, they would take Bokuto away from him. "I'm supposed to be here, actually. Akaashi continued to read on. "What was the dream about?". ", "That's the same thing!" Though he'd gotten thinner, his arms still had some power to them. I don't want to know them. "What makes you think I'm attached to you? It's a little too late for that, Bokuto." Akaashi stared through the stranger. I hope you enjoyed this...I researched FFI a lot actually, in order to get a better understanding of it. Whole. Turning his attention back to him, Bokuto met Akaashi's gaze. "That weather will only hurt you. Akaashi stepped to the side. He held his hand up in a "peace sign", and the video ended with him on screen. Akaashi was at a loss for words. When he was like this, Akaashi would think that he was resting, and he would almost believe that thought until Bokuto would twitch awake again, his body jerking him from what little relaxation he tried to achieve. It read: "If I knew those words I spoke a week ago would have been my last, I would have chosen them more carefully.". Bokuto smiled wide to those words. The ball was tossed back to him, and again, he got back to tossing the ball for Bokuto. "Take a seat. Looking away slowly, Akaashi watched as Bokuto and Kuroo reappeared in the distance. Are you checking out?". I don't want to read them. He wanted nothing to do with it. Very long. "Fucking bullshit." He kept his breathing controlled and steady for about forty minutes; he looked sound asleep, but was actually drifting between the real world and the dream realm. ", "It's not." Bokuto looked back up and thought for a moment, then nodded. He felt the gentlest of taps against his arm, and he turned his head to meet eyes that were as concerned as they were exhausted. Pointing a finger down the hall, a small assistant nurse directed Akaashi to a different desk, one where he would be able to find more information on the subject. Normally, Akaashi would have walked away that instant in order to pay Bokuto a visit, but as he neared his room, he could hear two voices coming from within. ], [I know! "You know... Um..." He looked down and rubbed his neck roughly, leaving behind deep, red marks. Another shudder threatened to rattle him, but he kept himself still, as difficult as that was. He would have laughed if he could. He walked ahead quickly, straight into the room. 'All I can say is that sleeping doesn't come as easily as it used to.'. Bokuto didn't make a sound. "We're going back to the hospital right now. Bokuto nodded once more. Things could be worse. He couldn't feel it. He watched the ball roll further away from them, and expected to see Bokuto trailing it, but instead saw nothing. "No is my final answer." "Fatal Familial Insomnia? Akaashi couldn't sleep, but it wasn't because of his unfamiliarity with Bokuto that caused this. [Then I guess I'll see you at the hospital around a week or two from now. He turned to look at Akaashi. At times, Bokuto would do nothing but lie there in bed, twitching back awake whenever his body tried so desperately to fall into the sleeping state that it once knew. "Well, even if you wanted to, I wouldn't have an answer for you." I really have to go.". He rubbed his hands together weakly and tilted his head to the side. They asked about the blanket and the scarf, but they never asked about Bokuto. He lost the ability to walk a little more than a week ago. "What are you doing?". "..." Bokuto looked up to stare out the window again. Three hours feels like seven hours, sometimes. Akaashi figured he should stay quiet too. If I remember correctly.". "They used to play volleyball together. Akaashi figured it was safe to say that Bokuto had already begun to pull Kenma back in. It's all for fun. "Are you tired?". Ain't that the horror of it all..." He rubbed his chin and stalked his way down the hall. There, he parted the glass slightly. "If you would please listen." It works for me as well. If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. Feeling an amount of guilt build up within his chest, Akaashi pulled out his phone just as quickly as he'd hid it away. He shut his eyes and squeezed his palm. He found it much too difficult to say no to Bokuto, but it had to be done. "Ah, I've finally said something funny." "No, no, no, no-" He pulled away from the windowsill and ran out of his room, straight downstairs and to the front door. Weakly, Akaashi parted his lips. He praises others while shouting that he's the best at everything he does. His hands twitched once, and he moved closer, leaning into Bokuto's touch. Take A Sneak Peak At The Movies Coming Out This Week (8/12) Better days are here: celebrate with this Spotify playlist; Tiffany Haddish shares pictures after 30-day body transformation Akaashi paused and gripped the strap of his bag. Akaashi's tone was monotonous, but Kuroo didn't fail to detect the venom that lined each word prior to his last sentence. Thank you for reading, it means a lot that you've read through my work! Akaashi asked sincerely. He took his time, the thought of removing it killing him faster than the disease itself. Bokuto moved closer to where Akaashi was standing, all the while still sitting in bed. From: Kuroo (Sent January 31st at 2:25 PM), [Things could be better. That had been the fifth time that month where Akaashi had to tear himself out of another nightmare. He flinched and pulled his hand away to stare at the screen. At some time while Akaashi was spacing out, the blue blanket that surrounded Bokuto had been pulled up just below his chin, with only his arm hanging out to hold onto Akaashi's hand. He turned his head weakly, and his body along with it. The both of them didn't exchange any words after that, ending the conversation just as suddenly as it had started. Whatever was left of Akaashi's smile faded. We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. "Yeah." ", The male who stood across from Akaashi shifted his weight to one leg. Bokuto kept silent. Akaashi turned to catch a glimpse of him, but he stared off in the distance, his eyes not focusing on anything in particular. Akaashi frowned heavily as he entered the hospital. Akaashi? His voice was solemn. Akaashi felt his heart sink to his stomach. He pulled out a phone, and to Akaashi's dread, he asked for his phone number. "I used to handle the cold better than this." He was glad that Akaashi found company in him. Akaashi sat up and placed his phone on the counter. 'Sleep well, Akaashi.' "So... Three hours is nothing." Sleeping. His heart beat a mile a minute, he found it difficult to swallow, and one of his legs bounced up and down rapidly. Bokuto had his head turned away. Akaashi's eyes widened slightly, and his eyebrows knit together in surprise. He pushed the chair away and found Bokuto's side in bed. He was slow to speak up again, but did either way. Marry characters from animes, tv shows, video games, movies and more! I cried several times while typing it, actually. Are you feeling better?]. Shifting in his seat, Bokuto pulled himself closer to Akaashi, one hand grasping the blanket that had been given to him. Those yellow eyes were gleaming. He then stared at Akaashi, waiting for his response. ", "Not to my knowledge. "But why?" It was a good idea to have never told them about him after all. Akaashi's parents were intent on having him intern in a hospital nearby, so that he could stockpile more things that would look good on his resume, for future purposes. He leaned into his touch, and his vision began to fade, his eyes welling with tears. Bokuto knew this, and now Akaashi did, too.The hospital AU that no body asked for, but that I took upon myself to write. "I told you I had my moments every so often.". "When have you ever tried to make a joke? His tired eyes were on Akaashi. He figured he would tell his parents that the people in the hospital were too occupied with everything else to tend to him. Managing a miserable smile, Akaashi roughly rubbed his palm with his thumb. Akaashi yanked his hands away and stared at Bokuto. It seemed that, after finally hearing his pent up thoughts aloud, they had frayed his nerves more than he thought they would. "I just came from there. He couldn't face him. His frustration slowly faded, and all that was left behind upon his pale face was a look of defeat. Has he ever done anything bad? He watched Bokuto with a wary gaze, unaware of what he was to say next. He smiled in Akaashi's direction, bright yellow eyes catching his own. Bokuto didn't move much. He was happy where he was. He swallowed thickly and looked out the window. I've just got something to take care of, but I'll be sure to visit you tomorrow.". Is he here?". He leaned back in his chair. He asked this in a tone of disbelief. He drags you back in. Bokuto tightened his grasp in that automatic way he always did. Akaashi shrugged. But as each second passed, Akaashi could feel his own pain building up more and more within him. The hand that supported his weight against the windowsill trembled without pause, and his other remained outside, shaking in the cold dead of night. "Well, I'll be going now.". His laughter died down along with Akaashi's. "I'm sorry. He faked a smile. He chuckled and rubbed at his face wearily. Bokuto had always been struggling to keep a positive front, but inside, he was falling apart all along. The day was strangely chilly, with an occasional breeze now and then, causing the browning leaves to rustle in the trees above. "My parents are out for a month," he'd unconsciously said, causing Bokuto to go into a begging frenzy to stay over until Akaashi said yes. Outside, the sky above grew dark as clouds rolled in. Akaashi lifted his head and looked to his side. He forced those words away and replaced them with new ones. He huffed out a breath and turned around. "I am. Bokuto closed his eyes after that, one hand resting on the side of his head. He touched his forehead to Bokuto's shoulder, which only earned a laugh from him. He was trying to tell Akaashi something else. "Just breathe with me.". He breathed in sharply. His hands quivered as he dug his nails into his knuckles. He tried to hide his grin with his hand, but it was still visible from the gaps between his fingers. The familiar voice made Akaashi's throat tighten. ", "I... Don't know." He lay his cheek on the top of Akaashi's head and kept still, daring not to wake him. Akaashi could still feel the sensation of his wild white and black hair brushing against his cheek whenever he moved, and the warmth that came from him as he held him close. That's all?" I've realized that I don't want to come here anymore. Akaashi inhaled slowly. This time, a weak sound left Bokuto's throat through a closed mouth, and he nodded. You? He kept his eyes on the screen. Manage and improve your online marketing. Bokuto whispered. Akaashi exhaled quickly through his nose, making a sound that was almost like a laugh.
