We pretended like nothing happened.

I know that's what he wanted so I had to resolve the unsettling feeling I got. Akaashi doesn't really like talking about things that overwhelms him so we can never bring up what happened last night.

I was a little sad about it, but I can get over it, right?

Maybe one day he won't be so scared and I can say something. Although, I hope he doesn't take long because I don't know how long I can wait.

Akaashi and I sat on the couch together, just talking about complete nonsense and being cute. No one else was here, at least we thought no one was. His parents weren't home which means we can do stuff but instead, his sister came by us with a bowl in her hands and sat right down on the couch next to us. We watched her, wondering where she came from because she obviously didn't just get here.

She was just wearing a plain old pink tank top and pajama pants. She was here last night? Akaashi and I didn't take our eyes off her as she acted all nonchalant. Was she going to say something? She was only sitting next to us, did she want something? She picked up her spoon before she opened her mouth.

"So I heard your little tantrum last night, Akaashi." she said plainly as she ate her cereal. "I must say that you've turned into a real brat." she said.

I had that feeling that I should leave. I'm not into watching siblings fight and Akaashi is emotionally unstable. The moment she said that, I knew that I had to get out of here. Akaashi kept a plain face as he looked at her; I can see the resemblance between them. What Lani said didn't affect him.

"You were here?" Akaashi asked.

"Where would I go?" she asked like he should've known that she wouldn't be going anywhere. "I'm not like you with all your friends and what not," she said and twirled her spoon in the air, rolling her eyes. "Its actually disappointing because here you have a good person in your hands but you're too bitter to realize it." she continued bluntly.

I should really get going but with the way Akaashi was sitting on me, I couldn't go anywhere. I was stuck between them.

"Lani." he warned but she continued.

"I thought you were better than that." she said and cocked her head to the side, smiling as she looked at him.

Her black hair fell to the side as well, her bangs curling over her forehead when she moved. Her smile reminded me of someone being devious. No, she's being passive aggressive. That's where he gets his attitude from. She's the person. Did she even notice that I was right here, or was that why she was doing it? 

"Why do you care?" Akaashi asked but now he didn't sound too happy. He was trying to not show emotion but I heard the slight anger in his voice.

"Cause despite how smart you are, you do stupid stuff. And I can't let you do something stupid now because you feel a little bad about yourself." she explained herself. I chewed on my lip and looked everywhere else except at them. Akaashi got off me slowly and stood in front of his sister.

"Don't worry about how I handle stuff." he said to her plainly.

"You're doing it wrong." she said.

"Are you trying to intervene with my relationship with Landon? Because that is not needed." he said quickly.


"You can say I'm bratty or acting stupid or whatever, but I'm just trying to figure out how I feel so I can settle everything out. And I'm sorry that sometimes I get upset when I don't know what to say or do, okay. I don't like feeling out of control." Akaashi said angrily. "And when I say your intervention is not needed, I mean it. I can deal with it myself."
