Disclaimer: Purely fictional, for entertainment only


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Satoshi, come, quickly, I think I caught something” Sho tries to keep the fishing rod he’s holding steady when he felt something is pulling the fishing line from under the water.


A middle aged guy, around sixty years old, who was getting a beer from the ice chest about twenty yards away, quickly put down the bottle and hurries over to the rock where Sho was standing next to. When he’s about half way to Sho, he slows down his steps a bit and hold his back with his right hand.


“Be careful, Satoshi, don’t walk too fast. You know your lower back can strain easily.” Sho is more concerned about his lover’s well being than losing the fish on the hook.


“Come on, give it to me” Ohno still walks over to Sho as fast as he can and reaches out his hand to take over the fishing rod from Sho. Ohno gave the fishing rod a few pulls before rolling the reel to retract the line.


Both are anxious to see how big the fish is, but when the end of the line finally appears above water, they see an old shoe attached to the hook. They look at each other and chuckled.


“I knew you won’t catch something before I do,” Ohno teased Sho. Even they have been together for over forty years, Ohno still like to tease his lover every opportunity he has.


“I did catch something, didn’t I? Only that it’s not a fish.” Sho gives a naughty smile.


Ohno doesn’t answer any further. He just loves seeing Sho’s expressions when he fails and yet not admitting it. He removes the shoe from the hook and reattached a new bait to it before throwing it back into the water. Then he hands the fishing rod over to Sho again. He goes back to get his beer and comes back sitting besides Sho.


Ohno and Sho had retired from entertainment business years ago. After Arashi, Sho remained in newscasting for some more years. Now they are enjoying their lives fishing, travelling, and relaxing. Ohno continues to do his art works, and Sho is writing a book about their Arashi days, not necessarily to be published, but he wants to remember all the bits and pieces of those memorable days.


Sho grabs the beer from Ohno’s hand and drinks a sip, when he sees Ohno still rubbing his back gently with his hand.


“I told you doing back flips too much can hurt you back” Sho sighed. “You didn’t feel it when you’re young, but see what’s it doing to you now. That’s why I refused to do it.”


“Ah, I see. So that’s the reason. Johnny-san should have listened to you then.” Ohno pretended to be serious about what he said.


Sho chuckled seeing Ohno’s earnest look on his face. The mentioning of Johnny-san’s name reminded Sho of his gratitude towards the mentioned man. What he and Ohno shared for forty plus years was all started by Johnny-san telling him to dance behind his sampai. Till this day, the two oldest members of Arashi are still very much in love.


“Satoshi, do you remember how we fell in love?” Sho is drawn into the memory of their past.


“Again? My dear Sho, you asked me this question almost every day?! I should just record my answer and you can replay it as many times as you want to hear. Just like I recorded your sleep talk which I replay when I want to hear your sexy voice.” Ohno laughed. Sometimes he thinks his long time lover is being a bit too sentimental. “Our ages add up to over a hundred years. Don’t you think we are a bit old to talk about something like this?”


“I didn’t ask you everyday! Don’t exaggerate! Besides, who mentioned the s-word just now? Aren’t we too old for that either?” Somehow their conversations will turn into picking on and teasing each other, but that is part of their fun.


“OK, dear, I’m sorry. Of course I remember how we fell in love, ever bits of it.” He reached out his right hand and hold on to Sho’s left hand. “Especially the time when we decided to come forward with our relationship.”


Sho nodded, and takes Ohno's hand to his lips and kiss it gently. It was the toughest time they went through in their relationship. It was a huge risk that they took.


“I remembered we laid hints here and there to the fans and media, hoping it would not be a total shock for them when we came forward.” Sho recalled those days when they were stressed out about how their relationship would be accepted, or rejected for that matter.


“I especially love the lip gloss talk. You were so cute and shy when I mentioned your hesitations to kiss my lips.” Ohno puts a big smile on his face, showing some wrinkles at the end of his eyes.


“I didn’t know how to react. I couldn’t say I did kiss you to borrow your lip gloss, could I?” Sho smiled back. “But Aiba was so smart in saying straight out that we could get married overseas. That was a really big hint.”


“And Nino asked everyone to give us their blessings. That was brilliant too.”


“Yes, for that, I can forgive him of grabbing your butt and kissing you all the time, but only kissing your cheeks though. Your lips are restricted to everyone but me.” Having said that, he leans over to Ohno and presses a gentle kiss on his lips, as if to reclaim what belongs to him and him only.


“Oh Sho, that was years ago. He stopped doing that to me long time ago. You know you don’t need to be jealous of Nino. He knew I’m with you from the very beginning.” Ohno reassures his lover.


“I know, Satoshi. He is our best friend. All three of them are our best friends. They are so supportive of us.”


“By the way, Satoshi, when you said you dreamed of winning Rolling Coin Tower when teamed with me in VS Arashi, did you really have that dream?” Sho wants to know if Ohno said that just to lay another hint of if he really dreamed of them winning.


“Which dream are you talking about?” Ohno scratchs his head. He honestly can't remember what Sho was talking about.


“You know, that time when you were pairing with Matsujun and you said that you dreamed of winning when pairing with me. Then weeks later we paired up to play and we ended up really winning.”


“Oh that time. How come you can remember so much details of what happened in our shows?” Ohno is amazed at how good Sho's memories are.


“Not always. Only those special moments with you.” What Sho said makes Ohno feels warm.


Ohno smirks. “Take a guess.” He sees another good opportunity to play Sho some more.


“Hmm, I think you really had that dream.” Sho said confidently.


“That’s no fun. At least you should have pretended to guess the wrong answer.” Ohno frowned. “But you’re right. I did have that dream. I spontaneously took the opportunity to use that as a hint, but I felt sorry to do that to Matsujun though. I put him in a kinda awkward position.”


“I’m sure he understands.”


Suddenly Sho’s voice was heard from Ohno’s pocket. It was from his phone. Ohno has used Sho’s sleep talk voice as his alarm signal tone. It’s time to take his daily vitamins. He took out the vitamins from his jacket and put them in his mouth. He was about to drink his beer before Sho stopped him.


“Don’t take pills with alcohol! I’ve told you a million times already.” Sho complains and gets a bottle water for Ohno.


“Sorry Okaasan.” Ohno sticks out his tongue after taking his vitamins with the water Sho brought him.


“Can you change your alarm signal please? It’s so weird to hear my voice there.”


“Don’t worry, I only use that one you sleep talk about food. The others when you said private things are for me to hear only.” Ohno gives an evil grin.


“Satoshi! Give me your phone and I’ll erase them all.”


“No way!”


They still act like young lovers teasing and playing with each other all the time. Even after forty plus years, they never run out of fun time together.


“Seriously, I was surprised the staff let us put our idea of using your sleep talk in the Android commercial. I mean, showing to the public that I recorded you sleep talking at 2am in the morning. What bigger hint that we’re together can there be?!”


“I know.” Sho turned his head to look at the man he loves. “I’m so glad our relationship was accepted gracefully when we made it public.”


Ohno nodded. “We couldn’t do it without the support from our fellow members and Johnny-san. And of course thanks to our fans for being so supportive too.”


“Wait! Don’t move.” Sho suddenly said to Ohno. His sounded so serious that Ohno thought there is a spider on him or something.


“What is it?”


“You’ve got a grey hair. Let me pull it out for you.” Sho’s hands are working on Ohno’s hair trying to isolate that one grey hair he found.


Ohno sighs in relief that it’s not spider. He shakes his head trying to prevent Sho from messing with his hair. “That’s OK, Sho. At my age, I have lots of grey hair. If you pull out all of them, I’ll be bald.”


They laugh.


“I don’t think we will have any catch today. It’s getting late. Let’s go home.” Ohno is a little disappointed. He seldom goes home empty handed. But he still enjoyed the time with Sho, who he knows come fishing with him only because he asked him to, and their nice chats together.


They start to pack up and get ready to leave.


“Looks like you’ll have to settle with my fried rice again tonight, Satoshi.” Sho said while they’re walking back to his car.


“No thanks. I’d rather have ramen down the street.” Ohno doesn’t understand why Sho’s cooking skills haven’t improved much all these years. But that’s OK, it’s part of what makes Sho so adorable.



// The End

Yama growing old together. Fishing as a setting itself is brilliant.

I love the way the various yama moments we noticed made its way into this fic, and the atmosphere is as domestic as if they were in the comfort of their living room.

It's really comforting to think of Yama growing old together and not really changing--Ohno still being stubborn and careless and Sho being the attentive and caring partner, still with his adorable failings, and the two of them forever being their fun and teasing, ordinary & laid-back selves.

And all those yama moments thrown as hints to gradually prepare fans for what we always know anyway is true, it does make sense ne. I would seriously squeal and daze away a full week if these two ever do come forward about it. xD ~<3

I knew Yama growing old together is a beautiful thing. This lovely story just affirmed it again for me. Thank you very much! <3<3<3
Jul. 14th, 2015 04:12 am (UTC)
This is exactly how I imagine Yama when they're old~

Thanks a lot for the sweet story <333
