Free! - RevelationThe weekend came around soon enough. Rin waited patiently at the gate for Chiyo, hands in his pockets and leaning against the metal. A small gust brushed over him and he exhaled. The day was bright and clear; it was perfect for a jog.Free! - Revelation by KuroiTaiyou
“Sorry to keep you waiting,” Chiyo said as she trotted over to him, that long ponytail swishing. “Good morning, Matsuoka-senpai.”
“Good morning, Hideki-chan,” he replied. “Let’s get going.”
“Okay. I didn’t bring my headphones today,” she said with a grin.
“Well good. I don’t like being ignored,” Rin stepped through the gates to begin their jog. Usually they talked, but neither felt like it. It was just nice to have company, Rin realized, while trying to improve. Once they made it around the circuit, after a short break for Chiyo, they headed back to Samezuka.
“See you again soon,” Chiyo said, smiling up at him as she pushed her bangs from her face.
Free! - InterestHis alarm clock went off precisely at 6:30 and he sat up slowly, ruffling his hair with his eyes still closed. He leaned over, legs bent at the knee and exhaled slowly. Slowly he peeled his eyes open and stretched luxuriously before he started to do crunches. He rolled out of bed and pulled his windbreaker and exercise pants on before he hurried outside for his morning run.Free! - Interest by KuroiTaiyou
As he made it to the gates, he looked around for that brown ponytail. When he saw no one, he sighed and headed out. He needed to make this quick. He returned in time to head to the pools for practice. He paused when the sunlight caught the pool water as it rippled in the morning light. The water matched her eyes. He had noticed that about Haru too. Practice was as usual, but the captain harped on him more than usual.
Well that’s what Rin got for showing his potential in front of the team.
Ai cheered him on as usual, which Rin appreciated, but he wondered if Chiyo – no, Hideki-san – would do t
Free! - PracticeThe week went on as usual. Rin was sure to give his all to his captain during practice and swam hard, just as he had promised to do the day he should have won. When the weekend arrived, he found himself itching to get outside, even if it was just for a run. So he pulled his windbreaker and running shoes on before he left the dorms. He saw Ai in the hallway, “Hey. I’m going out for a run. I’ll be back in an hour.”Free! - Practice by KuroiTaiyou
“O-oh okay. Have a good run, Rin-senpai,” Ai said quickly, immediately donning a bright smile to see the other male off. Sometimes Rin wondered if Ai felt like he was the housewife in their relationship. The thought made him snort as he left the dorms.
The night greeted him with a blast of cold air, but he set off at an easy jog towards town. Along the way, he passed a few cars and other runners who had buddies with them. They talked and laughed with each other as they ran. Rin was reminded of his old teammates.
Up ahead, he saw another jogg
Free! - NewbieAnother year at Samezuka High, another year since Matsuoka Rin had won – and been disqualified from - that medley relay with his past teammates: Haru, Nagisa, and Makoto. Still, that win with those three had been the push he needed to pass the plateau he had hit in Australia.Free! - Newbie by KuroiTaiyou
Rin exhaled as he headed towards the gym. He hoped to get a morning swim before anything got started. Interestingly enough, he wasn’t the first one to think like this. There was already someone in the pool.
The red-eyed male glanced in. Looks like Ai was getting some morning practicing in; good for him. Maybe Ai would want to race? It was obvious what the outcome would be, but it might be a good push for the young man. Rin dropped off his duffel bag, shoes and street clothes in the locker room before he headed out into the pool. As he walked to the edge of the water, he stripped off the black tanktop he had been wearing under his shirt and flung it to the side of the room.
