[Yama fic] Good Enough

Title: Good Enough
Pairing: Yama (Ohno x Sho)
Rating: PG
Genre: fluff, romance
Disclaimer: Purely fictional, for entertainment only
Summary: When they left the Share House one by one, it seemed to be nothing more than the end of a show. But to Sho, it meant a lot more and Ohno knew it.

A/N: Just rewatched the last episode of Himitsu no Arashi-chan. It still puzzled me when Sho said he had News Zero work when he left. May be this was what behind that XD

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Ohno took a deep breath when he came out of the house. He didn't know if it's a sigh or a relief. He just wanted to do it. It was not easy to be the last one to leave. May be that was a leader’s job, he thought. Expected to be alone, he took his small bag and took a step forward. But unexpectedly, someone with a large luggage leaning against the wall next to the front door came into sight.

"Oh -- "

Ohno opened his mouth and exclaimed. But before he could say anything, the other person spoke first.

"Satoshi-kun -- "

" -- Sho-chan -- "

Ohno didn't know how to continue the conversation. He could only stand there, a little awkward. He wondered why Sho hadn't left yet, but thought it would be insensitive to ask. Sho seemed to have captured the delicate ambience, and quickly followed up on the topic.

"I thought Satoshi-kun may have problem finding a taxi at this hour, so I stayed behind to give you a ride."

Ohno nodded in consent and went up to Sho. The two slowly walked together towards Sho's car. They kept a little distance between each other so they would not bump into each other's luggage. Not much were being said.

"Is it really OK? I mean, your News Zero work."

"Yes -- it's OK."

Just as attentive and gentle as usual, Sho always takes care of others in every way he can, even little details like putting Ohno's bag in his car trunk. But tonight, Sho seemed different.
"Sho-chan -- "


" -- don't force yourself."

Sho paused for a moment. An astonished expression flashed across his face, but disappeared almost immediately. He closed the door of the trunk and grinned mischievously. "I didn't force myself."

"Sho-chan is a liar." Ohno frowned and opened the passenger door in displease. Before he could get in, he was tightly embraced from behind. Ohno could feel the pair of arms, quivering and yet so familiar, not reconciled and regretful.

"Sorry, Satoshi-kun."

No one knows Sakurai Sho better than him. Or he should say no one knows this kind of tiny details better than him. Sho is already like that since a long time ago. Every time he doesn't want others to worry about him, he would put that reassuring sunshine smile on his face.

But –

This smile, is just Sakurai Sho's mean to cover up his anxiety and agitation.

" -- sorry." Sho repeated, voice trembling.

Ohno felt Sho's forehead against his back. Because of the height difference, Sho had to bend down a little.

"I'm so sorry to run away in the middle like this."

Ohno raised his head. The sky is all dark, but the shining stars can be seen clearly.

Jun was cool as usual to leave the house first, followed by Aiba who couldn't bear to leave but hid it with fluster. He thought that Nino would make up some excuse to get out and chased after his childhood sweetheart. Unexpectedly, it was Sho who stepped up.

"I don't want to leave Satoshi-kun. Parted with Satoshi-kun alone -- I can't bear it. I can't separate from Satoshi-kun, and I can't be alone in that room that's full of our memories." Sho's voice was low, but could still be clearly heard, word by word. "That’s why -- "

He cowardly fled at the critical moment.

"I'm sorry, Satoshi-kun -- "

"I'm sorry I left the burden to you."

"I'm sorry, I should be the one -- "

Sho felt tears were threatened to fall down his face. He barely held back the tears in front of others earlier, but they were about to pour out at this moment. All these time he tried so hard to be strong, to be caring. He tried so hard to become other members' support and lightened the burden of their leader. And yet he ran off like that at the very critical moment. He hated it.

"It's OK, Sho-chan, it’s OK." Ohno said softly. He had thought News Zero was a pretty lame excuse, considering it was not even from the same TV station. There are still times when the smart Keio boy could not think straight, and this was one of those times.

Sho felt a hand caressing his hair gently and slowly stroking his head.

"But a Sho-chan like this is good enough."

"Satoshi-kun -- "

"Even a Sho-chan like this is good enough to hold me up." Ohno said comforting words to prevent both of them from crying.

Sho lifted his head and looked at the shining eyes of Ohno, who smiled and patted Sho's head tenderly.

"Sho-chan is already very amazing. So -- " Ohno turned around and pressed Sho's head onto his shoulder. "Let me be your support this time."

// The End

Sometimes, Sho makes me want to cry just by being Sho. :'( I am glad there's Satoshi to hold him up, assure him and tell him it's okay to take it easy every once in a while. And this is such a lovely line: "Let me be your support this time."

Thank you for this lovely Yama fix. <333
