Hayato frowned even more at the girl’s words. Like he wanted to know that she’d helped him… what if she had done more for Tsuna than he had? And it shouldn’t even have been her with Tsuna. He was supposed to be with his Juudaime. At all times. Not some girl that knew absolutely nothing about him.
He snorted somewhat rudely at the girl next to him. “Tch… well, good to know. Glad you two had such a great time together.” The storm guardian pulled out a cigarette and lit it up as he changed directions, heading back towards his apartment. He supposed that he could’ve offered to walk Kyoko home (Tsuna would probably get angry with him if he didn’t), but at this point he really didn’t give a shit.
Though she didn’t want to worry her family, Kyoko couldn’t stand the thought of leaving Gokudera as angry as he was. If reassurance wasn’t enough to brighten his spirits, she’d have to try even harder. Try to the extreme! as Ryohei would say. Despite the darkness, Kyoko ran to keep up with Gokudera, all the while calling out, “Wait up, Gokudera-kun! Let me walk you home!”
Honestly speaking, her actions were a spur of the moment. Kyoko had gotten so caught up in her desperation to make it up to Gokudera, she’d forgotten to think of a halfway decent plan. It was so unusual, a girl offering to walk a boy home, and maybe even a little insulting to Gokudera’s pride, but now that she’d said it she felt taking her words back would merely add fuel to the fire. And so, she decided to go along with whatever she was already doing.
Hayato growled as Kyoko struggled to keep up with him. This stupid girl couldn’t possibly be serious… she was really going to follow him the whole way home? What the hell?! He didn’t need someone keeping an eye on him all the way to his apartment. He was a hell of a lot more capable than she was.
He sighed in exasperation as he turned his head towards the girl slightly. Not too much, however, so that he was still able to avoid eye contact as he spoke. “You’re seriously going to walk me home? I don’t need help, ya know. I’m pretty sure I can manage just fine without you.” The silverette made certain to keep his words as friendly as he possibly could given his current feelings towards Kyoko. The last thing that he needed was to have Tsuna pissed off at him, after all.
