Author: Me >w<

Pairing: Akame / ??/Kame (for now)

Disclaimer : The story is inspired from the drama Last Friends (just a little ) and part of a conversation I had with those pervy Kame addicts: P. The characters are not mine.

Summary: Everyone always tries to hide his true personality. When someone is vulnerable it’s better to wear a mask, to play and overplay, just to prove that everything is fine. This is an encounter between two souls, a man without real purpose and another one whose life is already mapped out.

Chapter 10



I wonder what could make you so sad...


Kazuya woke up suddenly, enveloped in a thick black cover. He looked around him, realizing slowly that it wasn’t his room. When he heard a slight mumble he turned towards the source of the noise.


Jin was right next to the wall, with his head on his knees and he was covered with a purple vest made of wool. Kazuya felt immediately guilty, seeing that he had invaded the older one's area. Not only he was in the other’s room, interfering with his personal space, but also he took the whole bed. He sat and moaned softly when his warm feet came into contact with the frozen floor. Jin must be refrigerated! He pushed the blanket to the end of the bed and slowly descended from it while approaching Jin.


"Get up ..."


He didn’t dare to touch the other, and even his hand was still burning while he remembered their contact form the night before. Jin insisted that he should sleep on his bed, saying he had a lot more than he needed and Kazuya hadn’t found the courage to contradict him. He fell asleep directly, it was warm and peaceful. It felt good and now he couldn't feel something hurting him anywhere.


Jin groaned a little, but didn’t wake up. Kazuya then took the things in his hands and shook the older a little bit.


"Jin" wake up, you must be hurting everywhere, sorry... "


The latter raised his head but kept his eyes closed, knowing he would face the blinding light of the day. He grumbled.


"No ma .. .. .. sle .. mh mhh"


Kame raised an eyebrow.


"... What?"


Jin lifted his face again and then opened one eye, hidden behind thick locks of messy hair.


"It's okay ... I slept well."


He gave the younger a slight smile and raised his arms up while stretching himself. However, it couldn’t hide the soft cry of pain when he felt his spine cracking. He looked up at Kame who watched him with concern. He got up.


"I told you it was OK ... I'm just getting old, no worries"


Kame couldn’t help but smile after witnessing the stupidity of the older man.



He stayed up all night so that now his head hummed. The sparkling sound of the soluble medicine was the only thing he could hear in the kitchen so early.

Kame hadn’t still returned ...

Takki didn’t know whether to go looking for him, or whether he should wait for him ...
And in both cases, he didn’t want to do it. Perhaps he should leave him alone for the moment?



He didn’t want to be discovered by Jin who seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at once. Also his attitude from the other evening would definitely arouse some suspicion ...

And Kazuya had cried so much...


He had realized too late that he was the reason for his tears.

Takki dropped his head on the white tiles of the table, and fetched a sigh. And to think he had another appointment with this Shiroishi client. More than anything else right now he really wanted to hang himself. He drunk the fluid from the glass in a gulp, then came up. He wasn’t sure, however, if he should be reassured or worried to leave Kazuya alone with Jin.

He scribbled a note on a sticky paper, he put it on the fridge door and left, leaving behind him a faint smell of his perfume.


I’ll go….It was…. Kind of you, to let me sleep here.”


Kazuya felt uncomfortable and didn’t really know why. He was torn between wanting to stay in this room, where he felt safe and wanting to go where he would face Takki, and thus face a new set of smacks.

He gathered his things and headed quickly to the door. He was closing it behind him when he heard Jin call his name.
He turned.

"If ever you need to return here, don’t hesitate to do it, ok?" Jin had whispered, a little bit sleepy.

Kazuya nodded.

And felt his stomach contracting to the idea.


Kazuya was surprised not to hear any noises in the house. He expected to stumble on Takki right out of the Jin’s room, but there was no one. He went to the kitchen and saw the little note on the fridge.

"I’ll return tomorrow, I left to Shiroishi. Remember to take care of the farm."

He grunted. As if he could forget something like that. Moron.

Turning to face the empty kitchen, he suddenly felt like smiling. Takki wasn’t there, he could be left at peace for a little while longer, and it made him happy.

He just forgot to add that staying with Jin made him a little too enthusiastic about his taste.

Kazuya needed a coffee, and he needed it fast….


Jin came down shortly after, and Kazuya was sitting at the kitchen table, a newspaper in his hand. He coughed, showing his presence, and Kazuya turned towards him.

"Your coffee is on the kitchen plot. Hurry up, drink it, we have a work to do."

Jin's eyes widened round as saucers.
Was this the ... coldness he had perceived in the voice of the younger? He who had looked so fragile, quiet and friendly less than an hour ago acted as if Jin had just arrived at the farm, as if he didn’t know him.

He was a bit too long lost in his thoughts and the sound of a cup that was placed in the sink next to him woke him up. Kazuya was standing nearby, and rinsing it with a little too much energy for such a small cup.

"I’m going out, meet me there, and hurry up."

When Kazuya left, Jin waited a few moments and then emptied his coffee in the sink. The day was going to start this way ..

He didn’t have time to look at himself and put on a big wool cap and his usual working clothes.

Jin came out, but couldn’t help lifting his thoughts from around Kazuya. What was that behaviour? Of course he didn’t expect to be acclaimed by the younger, but a little kindness wouldn’t have hurt, and even fewer words have flayed out of Kazuya’s mouth. Jin was angry for something that he wouldn’t normally pay any attention, let alone in this crazy place.

"Maybe he has schyzophrenia .." Jin whispered to himself.

He arrived quickly at the place where young man opened the door of the shed and get out there with the equipment he would need during the day.

"Do you need help?" uttered Jin form where he was.

"There is no need of 12 man to do something like this, now manage the animals, they must go out, stretch, then put the barriers to exit the cows in the barrage." Kazuya said.

He left without even looking. He was so preoccupied by his work he was almost sending Jin crazy. He fetch sigh. He was close to ....


"But what are you doing, hurry up!"

Jin raised his head and looked at Kazuya. What was his purpose? Why? He was alone with him, it wasn’t worth ignoring him as at the beginning. Jin thought that Kazuya was aware he could be himself with him. He thought that his yesterday actions had shown Kazuya that he would be there should the other needed him. He knew what it was like to feel completely out of everything, and despite himself, despite of Kazuya’s behavior he still offered him help. But apparently Kazuya didn’t want it.

Jin refused to believe he was more hurt than he wanted to be.

He advanced with heavy steps towards the barn and got busy to unfold the major barriers that connected to the stable with the large enclosures. The day begun well…


It was 2 in the afternoon ... Jin's head was still hurting and he felt it was going to explode as a balloon. Kazuya was so ... authoritarian …


"Hurry up now and finish with the leaves! You do know how to do it now!"

"And the horses?" You let them rot in their box? "

"No you don’t drive it today, I have no desire to finish this farm today "

"And you pull weeds out of the corner there, and I hope you do know how to..."

Jin took his head between his hands. He was going to explode. Whatever the problem the young farmer had, he began to gently tap him on his nervous system. He got up and walked towards the house to take some pills.

"Where are you going?" Kazuya asked with hands full of hay.

"Little break" Jin replied. "It is a problem?"

"If you could clean the box with logs before ..."

"When I come back."

"And why not now? You can wait."

"And why don’t you let me go for five minutes. You can wait, the logs will not flee."

Jin walked towards the house, leaving behind him shocked Kazuya. Finally his little break would last a few more minutes.

He almost fell asleep four times on the kitchen table. Luckily, a box of aspirin had been left there on the table.

Jin felt like rather wanting to break a leg than going outside. He did not particularly want to take his head with him. The moonstruck, he had grumbled.

He had however no time to think about it since Kazuya had returned without taking the time to remove his boots.

"When you said "a little break”, I didn't thought that you meant "I’ll leave for two hours and come back later".

Kazuya looked so exhausted. He looked much more tired than angered. Jin decided to let him speak, but the last sentence pronounced by Kazuya ends of knocking him out.

"If you're not able to work even a single day normally, without someone behind you, then you can return home to mommy and daddy."

Kazuya was leaving when Jin spoke.

"Explain me ... What's your problem exactly. How many are you there in this body?"


"Once you're all fragile and weak, and in the other moment, you turn into Stalin. Explain, what-is-your-problem?"

"I’ve no any problems, and I‘m neither weak nor fragile."

"Yes, of course, and when you were devastated in the combini, you were strong and brave ..."

"I don’t see how it concerns you."

"From the moment a person came knocking at my door when he felt bad, I think rightly so, that was my business."

"If you are asking so, it wouldn’t happen again, because apparently I have to worship you for that. Work is work, no matter what have happened, if you are not able to do it properly, you should leave. "

"I understand why you're all alone now."

Kazuya's face changed his colors. Jin continued.

"I understand why even your 'friends' don’t know you anymore and why do you take refuge in this shop. But I don’t understand why the sadness you feel makes you act like that. Cutting the others, instead of going close to them. And I’m no one to you but maybe you deserve what happens to you if you behave this way with everybody. "

Jin didn’t immediately realize the significance of his words. Only when he saw the countless tears on Kazuya's face he realized he had gone too far.

"I…… deserve it ..."

Kazuya eyes were glued to the ground, as he was immersed in distant thoughts. He looked up for a moment to meet Jin's anxious look. The latter spoke again.

"I, I didn’t want to say that ... it's just th-"

"So you also think I deserve it all ..."

"No, well, I didn’t mean it like that ..."

"I deserve ..."

Jin didn’t know how to react, he understood nothing of the situation. He was rather slow was this time completely to the picks. Kazuya kept repeating the same thing. The Kazuya who seemed so cold just broke slowly before him.

"Even you ... You think that ..."

"But ... I don’t understand you ... How you can change like that ... in a moment ... you're normal, and the one moment after ... unlivable. If I made something for you to hate me this much, say it, and it will be resolved. But if not, stop, you'll just end up making me hate you.”

"I certainly do deserve it too"

Jin stood up suddenly.

"But stop repeating it! You don’t deserve someone to hate you, but your behavior is sometimes too hard to manage. Last night, what I did was to help you. There's obviously something with Takizawa. I don’t know what it is, but… I can help you ... And no, you don’t deserve to cry all day, to look so helpless. I thought that with what happened, you'd understand. Now, I see I’ve been mistaken, given the low opinion that you seem to have of

Kazuya finally burst into tears in front Jin who approached him.

"I ... I can’t ..."

"You can’t what?"

"Your help, I can’t ..."

And he continued to cry. Jin had the impression that he was holding a child who has lost his security blanket.

"Listen. We don’t know each other, I know nothing about you and you know nothing about me. I really don’t understand what is happening. I know we spoke very little so far, but I think I have seen enough. "

He paused… then continued.

"What you can’t do, I'll do it for you. But I do want one thing; you stop acting like you did today, and be honest with yourself. If you want to smile, smile. If you want to come talk to me, come. "

He ran a hand through Kazuya’s hair, who engulfed by the emotion, almost jumped on him, crying even harder.

Oh, Jin would kill his parents for sending him here in this mess.
