[fic] Four Hikaru no Go drabbles

These were written during the chats for round five of blind_go ; we did a lot of drabbles challenges.  Funtimes!!

Three gen, one very mild yaoi (they don't even kiss, haha XD).

Title: Do-over
Fandom: Hikaru no Go
Genre: gen, drama, angst
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Characters: Hikaru, Sai (in absentia)
Summary: Hikaru wants a do-over. Prompted by murinae  with "if I could do it all over again ... I'd ..."
~

I remember when I was little. Before go, before Sai. I used to call for a do-over when I messed up.

He’s gone, and it’s my fault. If I could have a do-over, I'd let him play all the games, till he reaches the Hand of God.

Then I realise he'd hate that, because he likes—liked to watch me play, and he wanted me to play. He was a better person than me for that.

He was a better person than me in a lot of ways, really, but I can’t tell him. He’s gone.

...I want a do-over.

Title: Losing Side
Fandom: Hikaru no Go
Genre: gen, humour
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Characters: Hikaru, Akira
Summary: Betting isn't for the uninformed, but who's really the loser here?  Prompt was from verloren1983, "bet."
~

“Why am I doing this again? I don’t even like soccer!”

“Don't be such a spoilsport.”

“And we aren't even old enough to be betting!”

“That's why Kurata's placing our bets for us.”

“Something tells me this is going to end poorly.”

“Only if you bet against the winners. Who'd you bet against?”

“Gamba Osaka, whoever they are.”

“...Touya, they won the championship last year!”

“Well, I didn’t know that, did I? I told you I don’t know anything about the J League standings!”

“Ha, sucker.”

“Shut up, Shindou.”

“Ow! Touya~!”

“Hmph.”

“Touya? Where’re you going? Don’t be like that!”

Title: Hiding
Fandom: Hikaru no Go
Genre: gen, romance, yaoi
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Characters: Hikaru, Akira
Summary: Shindou knows how to hide.  Prompt was from aishuu, "imagine a perfect hideaway."
~

Touya never played hide and seek as a child; he was too busy with go. He has the feeling, though, that Shindou played a lot of it. The way he can never find Shindou when he doesn’t want to be found makes him think so, anyway.

But hidden away from the world here, with Shindou pressed close to him, their fingers entwined and Shindou’s face tucked into his neck, Touya can’t help but be glad for Shindou’s apparent skill at hiding.

It isn’t quite perfect, but Touya thinks it’s as close as he’ll ever come, at least in real life.

==============

Title: Turning Pages
Fandom: Hikaru no Go
Genre: gen, angst, drama
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Characters: Hikaru, Sai (in absentia)
Summary: Hikaru would turn the pages again if Sai would just come back.  Prompt was from therhoda, "take a character and well have them find something."
~

It had been a while since Hikaru had cleaned under his bed, so the profusion of Go Weekly he found under there wasn’t really a surprise.

What was a surprise was when he realised that they were the issues that included the kifu of Touya Meijin’s that Sai had spent ages poring over. Hikaru remembered getting irritated with him because Sai hadn’t been able to turn the pages, and he’d kept bugging Hikaru to do it. He’d whined the whole time he’d been turning pages.

Really, turning pages would have been a small price to pay to keep Sai around.
