she thinks it’s because he’s her brother’s captain, that’s why he’s so hesitant. he holds her hand delicately, like if he so much as squeezes she’ll shatter. he gets jumpy whenever she mentions rin, and the one time they nearly ran into him during a date he hid behind a trashcan for a good five minutes. she chastises him for that, because he’s the captain and he shouldn’t be cowering in fear of his own swimmers, but apparently her brother is frightening when angered. and, yes, dating his sister would result in a rather unpleasant reaction.

captain mikoshiba and mikoshiba seijuurou are very different from each other, where captain mikoshiba is strict and no-nonsense, mikoshiba seijuurou carefree and silly. still, kou thinks he’s being unreasonable.

besides that, though, she’s frustrated because this mental block of his—being downright scared of rin—means that he’s not once kissed her. she tried when they went to a festival together once, but he ended up distracting her with fried squid and festival games.

she mentions it to him, one day, when they’re sitting on a picnic blanket in the warm august sun. he turns to her, his cheeks dusted pink and tries to stutter something out. but she’s made up her mind, and she’s going to get her kiss, damn it all.

lightly, she dusts her lips against his, and he splutters.

"but gou-kun!" he says, "what if—"

she knows what he’s going to say, so she shuts him up with another kiss.

makoto watches haru twirl the water band coming out of his wand like a ribbon, as rin struggles to get a result. of course haru would be able to master a spell that produces water, he thinks as he produces his own stream of water.

aguamenti!" he hears rin shout, flicking his wand. it leaks out a thin stream of water, and the redheaded boy glares furiously. "oh, goddammit!

"it’s okay, rin," makoto tries to reason, "not everyone is gifted at charms."

rin only glares and turns himself away. he raises his head a little to glare at haruka, haruka and his goddamn gift at charms. makoto sighs, and rin waves his wand again.

he says, “aguamenti!" and a larger stream of water is produced. it doesn’t splutter like it usually does, and he flicks his hand upwards in surprise and excitement.

"yes!" he shouts, dousing everyone.

professor amakata claps her hands excitedly, as everyone else begins casting drying spells.
