“Hey hey, it’s alright, (y/n),” Sen, one of your few guyfriends, tried to comfort you. “I haven’t grown wings either. And hey, Seren doesn’t have hers eith—“
“Oh shut up, Sen!!!” Seren shot back from her seat in the classroom.
You sighed at the dysfunctional pair. Despite being identical twins, their personalities were as similar as day and night; though there were a few times when they seemed like the same exact people.
“(Y/N)!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Lev crashed in through your homeroom doors while screeching your name, with his grey-feathered wings and all.
“(y/n), (y/n), (Y/N)!!!”
“Uhhmm, yes? What is it, Lev?” you questioned the hyperactive male.
“(y/n), is it true that—“
“OI YOU DIDN’T NEED TO TAKE OFF DOWN THE HALL LIKE THAT!!!” Yaku yelled at Lev as he stormed into the room and gave Lev a good kick in the back.
“Owwwwwww… you didn’t need to kick me, Yaku! You could’ve injured one of my wings!” Lev complained at the pain in his back.
“Serves you right for running out of class like that!” Yaku promptly replied with his arms crossed.
You chuckled a little bit. Even though they were always bickering, the couple was actually strangely affectionate towards each other at times. You remembered Yaku’s bewildered face when he and Lev first met and they both sprouted wings. Yaku would constantly deny that Lev and him were meant to be together, albeit with a red face and stuttered words.
“Anyways,” you interrupted their small argument, “What were you saying, Lev?”
“Oh Yeah! Is it true that you’ll be transferring schools by next month???”
“WHAT?!?!?” your friends all cried out at once. Pondering the question posed by the tall half-Russian, they briefly fell silent and turned to you, awaiting your reply.
Feeling challenged by all of their eyes on you, you managed to mumble out in a small voice, “y-yeah…”
Your friends all immediately started roaring out in disbelief and words of “What?!?!?” or “No way!!!” could be heard from down the hall.
“Why didn’t you tell us???” Nikkei yelled, completely different from her normally stoic demeanor.
“Well, I mean, I’d tell you guys, EVENTUALLY…”
“(y/n), we all know that that means you’ll never tell us,” Seren replied to you with an unamused face.
Sighing out at your defeat, you reassured them that you wouldn’t be moving THAT far.
“It’s not like I’m moving to Hokkaido or a different country. It’s only a different prefecture.”
“Wait, which school are you going to transfer to anyways?” Yaku questioned you, curious all of a sudden.
“I believe that our own boys’ volleyball team is actually quite acquainted with this school,” you gave Yaku and Lev a small grin.
They looked at each other for a moment before recognition sparked up on their faces.
“You wouldn’t mean by any chance…”
“That’s right. Karasuno.”
“KUROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” Lev took off down the hall towards the gym, where Kuroo had already most likely started his individual practice.
“Oh fuck…” Yaku murmured to himself. “LEV!!!! STOP FUCKING RUNNING AROUND EVERYWHERE AND STAY STILL FOR A DAMN MINUTE YOU BASTARD!!!!!!!”
As Yaku ran out of the classroom and took off after Lev, you turned back to your friends only to be met by their intense gazes on you.
“Hey, w-what’s with you guys?”
Slowly, drop by drop, tears started to come out of their eyes, landing on the floor.
“(Y/N)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” they all yelled your name just before tackling you from all sides with a tight hug. “Be sure to come visit, kay?”
“You better stay in touch!!!”
“Hey hey, we’ll need to know your new address!”
“I got it… got it… Now c-can you guys let g-go??? I sort of… c-can’t… breathe…”
Immediately letting go of you, they all backed up. Tears were still prominent on their faces of sorrow.
“Jeez guys, of course I’m going to come visit. I’m not dying y’know. I’m just moving prefectures.”
“Still,” Sen looked down at you.
“We’ll miss you,” Seren finished the sentence.
“Oh, and one thing.”
All looking at you expectantly, their murmurs fell silent.
“I’m actually moving away next week.”
“AND YOU DIDN’T TELL US YET????”
“Like I said, I’ll come and visit you guys, and I probably would’ve told you guys sometime next week.”
The one week went by quickly, constantly spending time with Sen, Seren, and Nikkei when you could, and diligently packing your things at home. Your parents had already sent a lot of the boxes to the new house a couple of days ahead and left you in Tokyo to lock up and return the keys to the landlady.
“Alright then… Here you go Mrs. Yamato,” you handed the keys to the kind, old landlady. You hoisted your duffel bag onto your shoulder as you departed for the train station.
“(y/n)!” you heard the landlady call your name just as you took a couple of steps away. “Stay safe and come visit sometime, will you? All your friends and I will miss you.”
After a little bit of shock, you mustered up a toothy smile. “Will do!” you yelled as you turned back around and walked to the station.
“Sen? Nikkei?” you called out as you walked up to your platform.
“Oh! There you are!” Sen exclaimed at seeing you.
“We were afraid we might’ve gotten the wrong time.”
“What’re you guys doing here???”
“Seeing you off, Duh~ Seren has a fever and caught a cold from the rain yesterday, but she sends her regards to you.”
“Jeez, I told you and Seren to go home early!!!”
“You should board soon, shouldn’t you? The train leaves in a couple of minutes,” Nikkei stated, glancing at her watch.
“Oh shit, yeah! Sorry guys, gotta go!” you rushed onto the bullet train. “Text me and keep me busy, kay? I’m probably going to be bored for a few hours on the train,” you yelled as you quickly popped your head out of the entrance.
“No problem!” they both replied with an enthusiastic thumbs up.
“Alright… Now where’s my seat…”
Shuffling down the aisle, you came to a stop.
“Ah! Here it is.”
You saw that there was someone else that you were paired with, another high schooler presumably. Strange thing was, he only had one deep brown wing protruding from his back. When he’d finally noticed you, he looked up from the book he’d been engrossed in. At the moment your eyes had met, his other wing came bursting out, and only one of yours finally sprouted.
He seemed to be holding in his breath until he finally spoke two words.
