What in the world have gotten into human’s brain to be capable of thinking something like this?
The Generation of Miracle (and Kagami) had decided to board on a cruise line whereby their expanses were all covered by the oh-so great Akashi-sama. The son of the biggest and dominating billion dollar asset corporation had a lot of money to burn and he had rented the whole cruise line for his peaceful vacation together with his (very excited) friends.
The course they were taking would be the sea that separated Japan and North America, the Pacific Ocean. Until they reached the destination, everyone would be cooped up on the cruise line but the cruise liner boasted the most entertaining and enjoyable experience there is in the world that nobody would leave the ship without wanting to be on it again. Akashi just had to get the best for everyone because this trip was probably his own way to show his token of appreciation.
Standing in front of the cruise liner one would wonder the depth of Akashi’s wallet. The cruise liner was as big as the legendary titanic and to think that they would have this ship to themselves, what madness had the great Akashi stirred from his black soul? Not that anyone would give up the trip now that they were this close to boarding on it.
The only one that was forcefully dragged from his home was Aomine who had been declining the trip ever since the first time Akashi even mentioned the word ‘cruise line’. He put up a good fight until Akashi’s best bodyguards had to call for reinforcement to drag the blue haired teenager to the port. After paralyzing the Touou’s ace with a Taser, Aomine had been stuffed inside a brown sack so that he could not run away.
At precisely three o’clock, everyone was on board and some of them were standing at the deck to take in the view of the land as they would be spending the whole month separated from the ground. Aomine was still stuck in the sack and was only let go when they were very far from the port.
“I can’t believe that I am on a ship”, Kagami manly squealed in excitement.
“This is a cruise line, Kagami-kun”, corrected Kuroko. Meanwhile, Aomine heaved in the greatest breath after he was liberated from the confinement everyone seemed to enjoy putting him in. It took him a while to register the sight of the blue sea but when it did, he gagged and sprinted off for the side of the deck and faced his head towards the sea to empty his stomach. This sight didn’t escape Kagami who used the back of his hand to stifle his laughter.
“Kagami-kun, it is not very nice to laugh at others predicament”, said Kuroko, stabbing the Seirin’s ace with his abdominal chop. The ace let out a groan and glared at his shadow.
“I’m not laughing at anyone. It’s just that his confidence sure beats him good this time. So much for ‘the only one that can beat me is me’. He just got sacked by the ocean”, at this, Kagami laughed again. Aomine could hear him perfectly well but he ceased his retort because it was hard enough for him to keep the feeling to barf down.
“Kagami-kun, let’s go find our rooms to put the luggage. Aomine-kun, don’t lean too far in or you will fall into the ocean”.
“That would be a sight”, Kagami laughed again and he steadily followed Kuroko to find their respective sleeping cabins (which just happened to be the opposite of each other).
Aomine clicked his tongue in annoyance and after he was perfectly sure that no extra movement can result him running back to the rail, he picked up the sack as a temporary emergency measure and hung it on his arm. Damn Kagami for mocking him! Damn Akashi for including him in the trip forcefully! He went inside the passenger’s lobby (which put every grand hotel to shame) where he found Kise playing Angry Bird on his I-Phone. The blond haired model was indeed waiting for the appearance of his roommate who had just sluggishly entered the lobby with a sack.
“Oh, Aominecchi!” Kise greeted once he noticed Aomine’s basketball shoes appearance. He didn’t bother to look up as he concentrated to angle the birds accordingly to wreck the piggies defense fort. Aomine winced at the loud music of the game and snatched the phone from the model.
“Too loud”, he complained when he tossed the phone back after he had exited the game.
Kise looked at the locked screen mournfully. His hard work…. His scoreboard… “Why did you do that, Ahominecchi!” he cried in annoyance and left the said ahomine as he stormed off back to their shared cabin. Aomine walked in the direction Kise had taken and once he was there, he decided that he would take a nap after cleaning his sour tasting mouth. Kise was on the top bed sulking about his destroyed game.
Meanwhile, Midorima was inside his room with an offended look on his face. “You are taking almost all of my space on the bed, Takao”. Takao smirked and tried to make snow fairy out of the evenly spread blanket.
“Takao, you are destroying perfection”, Midorima was not amused. He had asked permission from Akashi to bring Takao together because his lucky item for the trip was black hair. If only generation of miracle (and Kagami) was not themed after Rainbow, he wouldn’t have to resort in bringing Takao together on their vacation. Since he was very particular about horoscope and lucky items, Akashi had agreed to let everyone brought a friend with them if they wished too (which was how Kagami had come into the picture in the first place) on the GOM’s private trip.
“Aw, come on Shin-chan. I’m sure Akashi had hired maids to recreate your perfectionist’s fantasy”.
“You should be respectful and lessened their work. Not add a couple more”.
“Shin-chan is a spoilsport”, Takao huffed but he continued to flap his hands around. Midorima sighed and he decided it was best to ignore Takao for a while by using the time to clear his luggage and kept everything inside his wardrobe.
What Kagami didn’t know was, Tatsuya was also on the ship and while Kagami was happily lounging in his personal room, Tatsuya was emptying the snack monster’s luggage for him. His room was a joint room with Murasakibara’s own so that he could access Murasakibara’s room easily whenever he was needed. There was also a reserved kitchen space with an oven as well as a refrigerator and these were all requested by Murasakibara personally to make it easier for him to order snacks hand crafted and baked by his snack maker.
Of course, the sleeping arrangements were not assigned randomly. First of all, he knew the private relationship between Kagami and Kuroko. That was why he kept them separated. Second of all, he put Kise and Aomine together because other than Kise, everyone else wouldn’t want to be roomed with the narcissist and Kise was the only one who didn’t know about Aomine’s sea sickness (and so he let Kise deal with the barf-boy). Out of pity, he decided to give them a bunk-bed cabin.
Thirdly, Midorima would need his lucky item around. Fourthly, Murasakibara would definitely want his snack maker cum male-maid around. As for Akashi-sama, he had chosen the room with the finest view where his wallpaper was practically the sky. He watched a few seagulls flying around the cruise. The cruise had started and the door to the limitless ocean had just opened. What came next was how they would create the memory for this journey.
