Befriending the Mad Dog

Work Text:

It started when they first met.

He hated that concerned side of his.
“Hey, are you-uhh-alright?”
“Shut up! You’re lucky I have to go. Things won’t be the same next time!”

He didn’t want him to know that it was because he didn’t want to believe in it.

He hated that naive side of his.
“Maybe you have a different opinion...but I don’t want to fight you.”
“Tch. idiot...”

He didn’t want him to know that it was because he didn’t want him to lose it.

He hated working with others.
“Tch. Do I have to work with you?”
“Hey. We are a team now.”

He didn’t want him to know that he didn’t want to be hurt when people forget about him.

He hated fighting together with him.
“You’ll get in the way! Just go over there and play your games or something!”
“Hey…!”

He didn’t want him to know that he was afraid of people getting hurt because of him.

He hated his relaxed attitude.
“I won’t interfere with you. So go ahead. Do as you wish.”
“...What? What happened to you?”
“Nothing’s wrong with me. I’m fine. You can do what your heart pleases.”

He didn’t want him to know that it was because he didn’t know how to react.

He hated fighting enemies together with him.
“Well, at least we won. Our...team. We won.”
“Y-you bastard!”

He didn’t want him to know that he enjoyed fighting together.

He hated the food he cooks.
“I can make a burger pretty quick. I was getting hungry myself, so this is perfect!”
“I-I said I don’t need it! Listen to me, will ya?”

He didn’t want him to know that it was because it was the most delicious thing he had ever eaten.

He hated competing with him.
“I must say the match ended in a draw.”
“What? Then we can’t decide who won!”

He didn’t want him to know that he was the only one who he acknowledged as his equal.

He hated doing missions together with him.
“But it was kind of fun. Doing a mission with you.”
“What? Are you crazy? Shut up and get lost!”

He didn’t want him to know that he enjoyed doing missions with him.

He hated playing games on his console.
“Wow, you are so good at shooting games! Show me how you play, so that I can learn something from it!”
He didn’t want him to know that it was one of the few common grounds between them.

He hated being depended on by him.
“I’ll count on you. Take the lead, Nata!”
He didn’t want him to know how scared he was on failing.

He hated that caring side of his.
“Dude, it’s good that you’re eliminating monsters, but don’t overdo it. Take a break.”
“Don’t tell me what to do! Mind your own business!”

He didn’t want him to know that it made him happy that he cared about him.

He hated being forced to do things.
“What have you done to Nata? Whatever you did, undo it right now!”
He didn’t want him to know that he was scared that he would be forced to kill him.

He hated facing death.
“Stop, Nata! If you go any further, your body will break!”
He didn’t want him to know that it was because he knew that he would cry.

He hated to depend on him.
“Do whatever it takes to bring her safe! If she dies, the old man will get all sad and whine all day. Ugh, I am not looking forward to seeing that at all! Do your best to save her, you hear me?”
He didn’t want him to know that he was afraid of the consequences if he fails.

He hated being near him.
“Please don’t let me down.”
“What? What do you mean?”
“I started thinking that you’re actually better than I thought.”

He didn’t want him to know that he was one of the people he didn’t want to disappoint.

He hated borrowing his treasure.
“Can I use it? You know, your game console.”
“Why? Do you want to play a game?”
“Heh. It’s a good time killer.”
He didn’t want him to know that it was only so he would always return to him.
