High Tides (MakoGou merman au) Ch. 2
“Please don’t leave me.”
Makoto was stunned. Why would this human look at her like that? As if he wasn’t a monster… this felt so different to him.
“Uh, are you sure?” he said, trying his best not to startle her; even if his appearance should be enough.
The human smiled at him, her damp red hair stuck to her face. Makoto still thought she looked heavenly to him despite her near-death experience.
She slowly took two steps towards him. Makoto’s fluke, his tail fin, tensed straight up. He didn’t know what to do, he never had a human come this close to him. She took more tentative steps towards him, feeling the heat coming off the warm-blooded mammal. He wondered if it felt unbearable since he was flushed red as well. Makoto looked down at the human that came up to his forearm.
“Um, why did you save me?”
“I, uh, f-felt like you-you needed saving.” Makoto stammered out. He sighed and then cleared his throat.
High Tides (Makogou merman AU) Ch. 1
A girl with long red hair swept up in a ponytail turned around from the back of the van where her best friend called her. It was a blistering summer day and the girls were outside packing up for their one-day road trip to the beach with four other girls from school. Gou drew a frown when she saw her come closer. “Chigusa-chan, didn’t I tell you my name is Kou! Kou!”
Her best friend, Chigusa, caught up to her, wiping sweat off her brow. “Gou-chan, I’ve known you since we were in diapers. You are going to be Gou to me no matter what.” Chigusa playfully punched her shoulder while putting her backpack in the trunk.
“All right, girls. Ready to go?” Ayumi’s mom questioned when the girls were all packed and ready to go. The girls from school cheered and climbed in the van. Gou sat in the very back with Chigusa and Minami; the middle seat consisted of Satomi and Yuka, and in the front were Ayumi and her mother. Gou s
New Neighbors (Akirai AU)Akihito:
On a nice summer afternoon, nineteen year old Akihito was unpacking into his new apartment after moving back to Japan. His mom stayed in Australia due to overtime hours at her grueling job, but he was reassured after she met a man that takes care of her and makes sure she eats three times a day. He chuckled at the memory of meeting her boyfriend (now fiancé) when he was fourteen. He just barely got home from high school when he interrupted a very intimate moment of his mom and her boyfriend on the couch. Needless to say, he was very grossed out. After that, he sat down in front of the two with crossed arms.
" So…" Akihito started, in English. He looked back and forth between his mom's frantic face and her boyfriend's nervous grin. "What are your intentions with my mother?"
Akihito's mom, Yayoi, slapped her face in astonishment. "God damn it, I knew I shouldn't have let him watch 'Jersey Girl'." She said in her native tongue.
Ever since then, Akihito made sure to giv
Penpals (Akirai AU)"Mirai, you received another letter from Akihito-kun!" Mrs. Kuriyama yelled from downstairs. The peach colored hair eight year old quickly trotted down the steps and rushed up to her mother.
"Where is it? Where is it?" Mirai asked, exasperated. Mrs. Kuriyama handed her letter with a grin. Mirai wasted no time to rush back upstairs into her room to read her new letter. This was very special to her because it was from her pen pal Akihito, who currently lived in Australia. Her class at school had an opportunity to have a pen pal with a foreigner, and with Mirai's luck, she was given a pen pal who is Japanese and can communicate well. His name is Akihito Kanbara and he had been living in Australia with his mom since he was three years old because of his mom's job. He's nine years old and it surprised Mirai how he's basically fluent in Japanese and English. All of her classmates at school rarely sent letters back and forth with their pen pals, mostly because they couldn't really communicate
