Fandom: Detective Conan
Friends: Kudo Shinichi/Edogawa Conan and Hattori Heiji
Disclaimer: I do not own Detective Conan—all the characters belong to Gosho Aoyama. I just kidnapped them and hid them in my closet to keep them safe from…I dunno, something awful, I’m sure. Don’t worry, I feed them. Sometimes.
Summary: Heiji made a HUGE blunder. And Shinichi is NOT happy.
Kudo was pissed.
Granted, Heiji had screwed up rather royally. But still, this much anger over it didn’t seem fair.
…okay, it did seem fair. But that didn’t mean that he was going to take it quietly. He was incapable of doing anything quietly, after all. He was going to annoy, needle, bother, and beg forgiveness out of the Tokyo detective by any means necessary!
But unlike other times, when Heiji had screwed up, they had bickered and then all had been well, this time Kudo was not forthcoming with the forgiveness. Not even a plea from Neechan could change his mind, which flew in the face of one of Heiji’s core beliefs about his friend and rival detective—he had always thought Kudo to be incapable of refusing her anything.
Neechan made it clear that she understood why Shinichi was so angry, but she’d also been sympathetic and understand about Heiji’s blunder. And she certainly didn’t think it should destroy their friendship.
It was four days after his monumental error that he finally got a chance to confront his friendly rival about the situation. Kudo was, understandably, not pleased. “Go to hell, Hattori,” he said bluntly.
“You can’t stay mad forever!” Heiji said.
“Wanna bet on that?”
“It was an honest mistake,” Heiji countered.
“You never could keep your mouth shut about anything, could you? Remember how many times you called me ‘Kudo’ when I was Conan?” Shinichi spat angrily. “You knew how important this was!”
“Why were you dragging your feet about it?”
“As previously stated, you can go to hell.”
“Kudo, come on—“ Heiji tried to protest again, but Shinichi walked past him and exited the room, leaving Heiji to howl at the closed door. “How was I supposed to know you hadn’t given her the ring yet??”
PS. I’ll let your imaginations fill in the blanks as to how Heiji managed to screw up Shinichi’s proposal to Ran. The hand-puppets are too angry to tell me. So I don’t know. Thanks for reading, all! Much love!
