PAIRING: Ban x Ginji (duh)
SUMMARY: "You know what it is."
REQUEST: for asa-chan
-A devoted love. Is Shirou-kun similar to you in that aspect too, Tamaki-sempai?-
-Yes. Entirely so-
“Ban-chan, what’s that?” Ginji said, pointing to the large goblet Ban was carrying into the car. Ban said nothing, setting the glass onto the seat. He was still having doubts about this…process. It should work, but….
He shut the car door and started to walk away. Ginji, thoroughly confused, followed him hesitantly.
Ban was silent.
Ginji stopped and waited. Ban sighed and said, “Do you still want to be my partner?”
“Of course!” Ginji said immediately, “Who else would I want to be partners with?”
“Listen to me!” Ban yelled and Ginji stepped back in apprehension. Ban calmed down and pushed his glasses up, “You have to be absolutely sure. There are no take-backs after this. If you choose this…” He wavered for a moment and continued, “If you choose this…then…you might not have another choice later on.”
“I-I don’t understand Ban-chan,” Ginji stuttered, “What is it you want me to do?”
Ban stared at Ginji. What was he searching for? If he asked, Ginji would give him anything. He knew this. Ginji would give him anything.
That’s why…Ban felt his chest clench, he was asking first. He would never live with himself if he…
“There’s a spell,” Ban said finally, “A secret spell that binds people together.”
Ginji said nothing.
“You understand right?” Ban said softly, “You know what it is. It’s a binding spell.”
Ginji closed his eyes. Ban watched carefully and said, “You don’t have to do it. I shouldn’t have mentioned it anyway.”
“You should have said that earlier Ban-chan!” Ginji said smiling, “Of course you can use the spell.”
Ban flinched. And then whacked Ginji on the head, “Idiot! You’re supposed to think about it first before you make an important decision like that!!”
“What’s there to think?” Ginji said and smiled, “Ban-chan is my partner.”
Ban muttered, “Only I would stick with an idiot like you.”
Ginji laughed sheepishly.
“All right then.”
“….You’re my partner right?”
Ban sighed, “I told you didn’t I? I’m the only one who would stay with an idiot like you.”
And Ban smiled.
AUTHOR NOTES: In both manga and anime, several times it's been mentioned that Ban and Ginji share some sort of 'bond' or 'connection'. So I might continue this. Or not. XD
