A/N: There was a prompt in a meme - I can't remember, really. That's how the story came up. Nino and Jun - moving in together.


"Let's move in together."

Jun froze and let the plate he currently washed sink back into the warm, soapy water. Those words were spoken so casually, so freaking calmly, that Jun wanted to turn around and utter an "HUH?", but he didn't.
He fished the plate out of the sink again before replying in the same steady, careless voice "Sure, why not."

Well, that was a week ago. A week full of strange, doubtful and meaningful glances which made Jun want to snap every time he actually caught such a look from Sho and Aiba, or even Ohno.

Now, he found himself in a nice, open flat Nino got a hold of. But since it was too pricey for himself alone, since it was so close to their shooting studios, since they fooled around (in other words occasional sex) for over a year now... Why not move in? The first two arguments were the ones Nino spoke aloud. The last one remained unspoken, but surely in both heads.

"It's nice," Jun stated, maybe a little surprised that Nino actually seemed to have carefully chosen this one. He didn't seem the type for it.

"I know~" Nino grinned and spread his arms while dancing through the light flooded room. "It's spacey, isn't it? I knew you would like it."

Jun arched an eyebrow, but smiled.

"Though, I do doubt that both of our furniture will fit," Jun mused out aloud while imagining his white comfy sofa in front of the huge, down to the ground windows.

"Ah~ I don't care about that," Nino waved aside still grinning. "I completely trust you with that." Which meant that Jun would have to deal with the whole move and arrangement himself. Well, that was the Nino Jun knew.

The next week Jun was engrossed with wall colors, furniture, and moving companies. He would discuss every matter with Nino. Literally discuss, since not a single matter had been confirmed yet. This was seriously going to be interesting.

The rest of the group already left the changing room when the issue about the curtains seemed to escalate.

"Seriously, why would someone deliberately pay 10,000 Yen for a single curtain? And you even need two of them!"

"That is the price for a meter!"

"WHAT?"

"They're going to sew them according to our window height."

"Oh, dearest-..."

"Oh, come on, Nino, these are really nice and the material is-..."

"In return, I want to have you on top of that huge dinning table we just bought," Nino said with a malicious sparkle in his eyes.

Sho chose just this moment to return from his involuntary coffee break and groaned painfully. "Seriously, guys..."

Jun, ignoring Sho's entrance stared at Nino challengingly. "Deal."

Nino blew Jun an air-kiss and smugly leaned back into the sofa, welcoming Sho cheerfully, who tried to distract himself behind a huge newspaper.

They knew the dinning table would be the first thing that got into the flat when they moved in.

~

Jun placed a hot plate of carbonara in front of Nino, who was sitting in front of the white couch in Jun's living room, digging through Jun's book box. Jun nearly had everything packed for the move so he was kind of pissed that Nino was sort of destructive here.

Nino looked up and frowned at the plate full of pasta and shrimps nicely arranged.

"What is this?"

Jun shrugged. "I thought I would make you a proper meal before I have to head off to Las Vegas."

Nino raised an eyebrow, a huge grin replacing the doubtful expression about the motherly feelings Jun displayed. "Thanks Jun-pon~" Overly happy, he dug into his food while continuing to go through Jun's books, fishing a rather small one out of the box.

"Exercise in Style," Nino read and flipped through the pages while taking small bites of the offered pasta. Jun made a displeased noise. Nino flashed him a knowing smile.

He read the first few pages while Jun went to bring some wine.

"Jun, you do know that this book retells the same story over and over again, right?" Nino shouted towards the kitchen, somewhat confused.

"Yes."

Nino jumped a little. Jun was already behind him again, setting the bottle of wine and the glasses on top of the dinning table.

"Why would some one write a story more than 50 times, over and over again? Or no, wait, why would you read it?"

"There are different styles."

Nino, still, was not very convinced and frowned at the lines. Then, he shrugged.

"The way I see it, it's some cheap way to write a book."

Jun caught his book, whacked Nino lightly over the head with it, and settled beside him to continue eating his food.

~

"What do you think of a deep shade of red at the wall next to the windows? Like number 3032."

Nino fumbled, bored with his color shades table. He still can't believe that Jun made him buy such a thing. He crunched his face at the oriental red.

"I like white."

"... Because it's cheap."

Nino ducked his head unconsciously. He seemed to be an open book for Jun.

Nino could hear the typical hectic rush at a film location over the phone. It made him feel kind of warm that Jun was busy with filming and he stilled cared so much.

"How about stripes, then?"

"Why stripes?" Jun asked, confused.

"We would meet in the middle." Nino answered plainly.

"I hate stripes."

"You wear them all the time!"

"I hate stripes on my wall!"

A huge smile displayed on Nino's face. God, how he had missed it. He wanted to say it out loud. He wanted to say 'I miss you', 'I miss arguing with you', but instead he says:

"How about dots then?"

The next time Jun called, it was too early for Nino, and too hectic for Jun. All that Nino caught was something about a green carpet, and Nino really did not know what Jun wanted with a carpet. There was nice timber floor board at their apartment, so why hide it with a carpet?

He made a snarky remark, and he couldn't help it. It happened in a blink of an eye that he couldn't even remember what he had said, but he could hear how Jun's tone had changed.

"Oh god, Nino, I'm being serious here."

Nino knew that Jun's nerves were being stressed too far. He was practically living on the plane right now. Traveling between Las Vegas, Japan, and Shanghai nonstop; all he wanted was the nice home waiting for him, Nino understood.

"Look," Nino began softly. "All I want are simple white walls, your white sofa, and your white ass, the best right now."

"That's kind of impossible."

Nino knew that, and he hated it.

~

"Maybe it was a bad idea moving in together."

He never held back his opinion. Maybe it was not appreciated most of the times, and maybe he should have held back this time but he actually said it out loud because he truly felt like it.

What was the point of living together if one person was constantly away, anyway?

Nino wouldn't admit that he waited for Jun to return home - he wouldn't even admit it to himself, and Jun wouldn't see the point in apologizing since this was their work. Nino knew that much too, nonetheless he was frustrated with the situation.

He could feel Jun stiffen behind him while he was going through his mail.

"You were the one who asked." Jun stated calmly - or he tried to be, but Nino could actually hear Jun's voice wavering.

"Yeah, but I don't see the point anymore. We saw each other more when we did not live together. Are you aware of that fact?"

"I can't help it. It's the promotion for HanaDan, which does not seem to end," Jun replied impatiently. His tone implied that he did not understand why he needs to clarify his point at all.

"And that's why you're crashing at Shun's place all the time?" Nino remarked sarcastically.

"Kazu-..."

 "We have not touched each other in weeks, Jun." Nino finally said in a steady voice, shuffling his cards, and pressing himself deeper into the sofa cushions.

He knew he went too far when nothing but silence followed. He knew he hurt Jun to the core, accusing him, when Jun simply grabbed his jacket and headed towards the door. Nino could barely hear it shut, but nevertheless he flinched, and his hands slowed down.

He let out a shaky breath, which he did not know he was holding, and looked around the apartment. At the white plain walls, the white sofa he was sitting on, the white curtains they bought, and the huge dinning table where they never once ate from.

Everything in this apartment suddenly screamed Jun.

He cursed and headed after him.

~

Finding him at Shun's place wasn't really helpful in this situation. Oguri opening the door with this knowing look wasn't helpful, as well. He wanted to turn around, he wanted to curse and maybe he wanted to punch Oguri.

He saw him lying on Shun's couch, face almost hidden in the soft pillows. Nino sighed and went closer, kneeling in front of the sofa. Even in his sleep Jun did not look relaxed at all, brows knitted to a frown and his fingers tightly clutching the cushion.

Nino bit his lip and hesitated, his hand hovered for a moment above Jun's hair. He needed to apologize, he was aware of that fact. However, he wasn't good at apologizing. Small apologies always run over his tongue like nothing but this...

He allowed himself to run his fingers through Jun's hair, and smiled bitterly. He really did not touch Jun for such a long time, because this almost felt foreign.

Jun stirred and rolled over to lie on his back, moving his arms to hide his eyes.

"I thought this was what you wanted." Jun muttered, tired; too tired to sound angry.

Nino couldn't say anything. He couldn't say "It is! Of course it is!", though it sounded so perfectly easy and right in his head. Instead of saying anything, he withdrew his hand kind of guiltily.

Jun sighed audible. "And I thought me crashing at Shun's place would spare you a lot of me in completely exhausted and stressed mode. I thought if we lived together, I should spare you the unnecessary drama," Jun laughed bitterly and rubbed his eyes. "Maybe I think too much, huh?"

Nino was biting his lower lip so vehemently that it might have bled anytime. He did not want to see Jun like this, and he did not want Jun to spare him anything. He did not want to miss Jun, since it made him fucking vulnerable. He wanted to live with Jun. He wanted to go through all these moods he knew Jun would display. He wanted to... He snapped.

Suddenly Nino rushed forward, took Jun's hands off his face and kissed him, hoping he could convey everything he does not dare to admit or say out loud.

It was fierce; no sweet or gentle emotions behind it, but raw want and desperation Nino did not know Jun felt too. When they parted, Nino panted against Jun's neck. He had straddled him in the process and was now able to feel the fast raise and fall of Jun's chest.

Just when he was about to look up to actually see the emotions which he was sure would be purely visible on Jun's face, Jun's hand found his neck to force him down once again apparently not trusting him and himself.

~

Shun threw them out ten minutes later.

~

"How about late night dinner?" Jun asked while they walked their way home.

Home, Nino thought, and smiled slightly. He 'Hmm'ed and enjoyed Jun's arm around his waist. Jun's hand was warm even through Nino's shirt and he poked him lightly - indicating that Nino could use some food.

Nino sneaked a hand into the back pocket of Jun's jeans.

"And then we're clearing the dinning table," Nino said smugly.

Jun laughed.

I think it might have actually been that prompted this, I asked for domestic Matsumiya life in the last request meme - I have a serous weakness for sweet, yet snarky, Matsumiya home life. Though I'm sure I'm not the only one ^^

I liked it of course. I love how they have the sort of relationship where they obviously want to be together but are both too bitchy at times to just come out and say it.

Noooo, that was you?

I... hm... am not the best writer out there. So I am really glad that you liked it!
Thank you ♥

It might not have been me it could have been someone else in a different meme but I'm still really glad you wrote domestic matsumiya ♥

You know, I wrote this (and posted this) because of your Matsumiya angst?! I needed to 'contrast' your current fic with this one - I so root for Matsumiya XD

Anyway I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

Aw, that was very nice. I like the feel of them not actually dating, per say, but being in a relationship together. Like, it just sort of happened, but they both know how serious it is. ^.^

Jun trying to spare Nino his tirade was also cute.

Thank you very much!
I like those fics too when they pretend it is nothing serious but they are actually having a relationship.

I'm really glad that you liked it~~~
