FILL: Nice (Haiba Lev/Yaku Morisuke)

SWAG2016 participant #47

The cat cafe is small and cosy, with wooden tables and comfortable chairs. Yaku isn't entirely sure why Lev has brought him here, but so far, nothing has gone terribly wrong, so he isn't complaining. Lev is even being―nice, even if he's a little overenthusiastic about it. He keeps hanging back, giving Yaku a smile and an after you, as they got on the train, as they walked into the cafe.

They walk to a table and Lev pulls a chair out, blinking when Yaku sits across from him. "What are you doing?"

Yaku raises an eyebrow. "What are you doing?"

"I was…" Lev looks down at the chair, blinking. "I thought I'd pull your chair out for you. That's nice, right?"

Yaku narrows his eyes suspiciously. "…Nice."

Lev smiles at him, sitting in the chair he's pulled out instead. The chair is a good size for Yaku but it looks comically small for Lev, who leans forward, resting his chin in his hand. He's watching Yaku closely and it's a little unnerving. Yaku is about to comment on it, but then a waitress comes along with menus, and tells them that she'll be back in a bit so they can order.

"I've never been here before," Yaku says, as he flicks through the menu. The food sounds nice enough, but it means that he can't decide.

"Neither have I," Lev replies, smiling. "I thought it'd be nice though. The cats looked pretty friendly when I had a look on the website."

Yaku glances over at the counter, where there are three cats sprawled out, napping. There are two others walking through the cafe, winding through the tables and chairs. They look cute, Yaku supposes. He likes cats well enough and the thought of sitting in a cafe surrounded by cats actually seem pretty pleasant.

By the time the waitress comes back, Yaku's decided on coffee. Lev orders the same, smiling at the waitress when she tells them that they're welcome to wander around the cafe and pat the cats.

"Do you want to?" Yaku asks, the moment the waitress walks away. Lev is looking around the cafe eagerly and it's… nice. Cute.


"Yeah," Lev grins. "Do you want to come with me?"

"I'll watch," Yaku decides, staying where he is as Lev gets up, wandering over to the nearest cat and picking it up. It makes a soft sound of surprise and Yaku watches with concern, worried that it'll scratch him.

It calms down though, when Lev settles the cat into his arms, rocking it gently and stroking its back and cooing at it.

Yaku wants to cover his face with his hands because all he can think of is how cute this is.

"I've decided," Lev announces, as he sits back down, still holding onto the cat. "You see those two cats piled up on top of each other in that corner there?"

Yaku looks, at the black cat curled around a tabby, their faces pressed together.

"That's Kuroo and Kenma," Lev says, and Yaku laughs quietly.

They spend the rest of their time at the cafe finding other cats to associate with the rest of their teammates. There's a vocal one that they decide is Yamamoto, and an incredibly friendly one that they decide is Inuoka.

It's fun, Yaku thinks to himself. He honestly never thought he would enjoy spending so long in Lev's company, but he's being pleasantly proved wrong.

"So," Lev smiles at him nervously, as they walk out of the cafe later. "Was that an okay first date? Should the next one be better, or―"

"Wait," Yaku interrupts. "What?"

Lev's smile falters. "Um…"

"I mean," Yaku says quickly. "Yeah. It was a good date. How about―how about I organise the next one?"

Lev smiles brightly. "Sure."

Yaku's heart is pounding in his chest as he thinks back to their time in the cafe. Did Lev mention that it was a date? Did Yaku somehow miss that?

Either way, he supposes, he supposes it's not such a bad thing.

He'll have to pick a good place to go to for their next date.
