“I’m not a hero. If I had to choose between saving Haru and saving a whole city full of people, I would choose Haru in a heartbeat,” Makoto said quietly, a bitter smile touching his lips. Haruka’s deep blue eyes gleamed as he studied Makoto’s face. He knew it wasn’t true, but Makoto’s sweet lies had always comforted his heart when he was waiting for him to come back home safe.
“I’m just an ordinary cook,” Haruka repeated and Makoto shook his head. Haru was anything but ordinary. If he just tried, he could do anything he wanted. But Makoto could never bring himself to say it out loud. Haruka wanted to return to the water more than anything, and Makoto could not bear the thought of Haruka going somewhere he could not follow.
It’s the story of a cook who dreams of returning to the water and the firefighter who loves him.
Sorry for the lack of summary, I’m pretty bad at this. But finally finished editing chapter 1 of the future fish AU firefighter x chef story I’ve been dying to write (ie Working Husbands AU).
