Title: It's all about Subtext
Fandom: Pretear (manga)
Pairing: Sasame x Himeno x Hayate (XD)
Notes: The cool thing about the manga is that it's a big pairing ORGY like Ouran. XD And the teasing between Sasame x Hayate is just oh so special~

"Right," Himeno said, tapping her fingers against the table, "Let's settle this like civilized adults."

The Leafe Knights blinked.

"Sasame," Himeno said in a know-it-all tone of voice, "You like me right?"

Hayate choked.

Sasame smiled, "It was rather obvious."

"And you like Hayate too right?" Himeno stressed out her sentence.

Sasame blinked and seemed to consider it. He shrugged, "Maybe?"

Himeno spluttered, "But what about all the buttsex, I mean subtext! subtext!" she yelled, earning worried looks from all corners (except Kei. Kei simply did not care).

Sasame looked genuinely puzzled, "There's subtext?"

Himeno sighed and tried again, "Sasame, why do you tease Hayate so much?"

"Good question," Hayate growled, "I'd like to know that too."

Sasame pondered that question for a minute and smiled, "That's easy. He gets all flustered and red in the face."


"You're doing it now," Go pointed out helpfully.

Hayate scowled and leaned back in his chair.

Himeno wasn't sure she was making progress or not.

"Moving on then," Himeno said carefully, "Hayate."

Hayate jerked at the mention of his name.

"You like me right?"

Hayate blushed and nodded.

"Do you like Sasame?"

Hayate didn't pause, "No."

Himeno's eyes flashed as a warning signal, "Why not?"

"He annoys me," Hayate stated, "and he keeps coming to my room to sleep."

Himeno stared.


It took Hayate a good three seconds to realize what he just said. He spluttered, "NOT LIKE THAT HIMENO!"

Sasame pouted, "I thought you didn't mind."

"You kick at night," Hayate replied.

Himeno turned a brighter shade of red.

"Well!" Himeno said brightly (too brightly), "Then I really don't have anything left to do!"

"Himeno, what are you talking about--," Hayate's eyes widened, "You can't be serious!"

Himeno smirked evilly, "I'll be going home now," she said cheerfully, "Sasame, call me bakc when you get results okay?"

Sasame waved her good bye while Hayate simply choked and muttered incorigible sentences one after another. Smirking, he tapped Hayate's shoulder and whispered in his ear, "We should practice first if we're going to get back at her later."

Hayate keeled over.

I cannot believe I missed this! Lol! Sasame/Hayate is my favourite pairing in Pretear, despite having only seen the anime, in which the subtext is, annoyingly, downplayed.

Plus, Himeno is not just a side 'oh yeah she exists' character. Woo!

Gotta love the buttsex subtext!
