au me, baby

[set sometime way later in akito-riku-agito au. we'll decide when. someday.]

Riku is tapping his feet against the ground as they wait for the elevator to hit the level that it's heading for. He's doing his best to ignore the other sole occupant, and concentrating on the thoughts and introspections of his own head - something he used to avoid whenever possible, but now after awhile with Akito, he's healed more and he finds he enjoys the company of his own mind a lot better.

Besides, it's better than Agito, he should think. Far less frustrating and annoying, at least.

Tap. Tappity tap tap. Tap. Taaaaaap tap tap. It may or may not be getting annoying, but he's not paying attention if it is. Besides, before there's any chance to stop him, everything jerks - the elevator comes to a complete stop before it's supposed to, and the doors do NOT OPEN.

"Th-the fuck?!" Riku expresses. "What's going on?"

Language, shadow boy. Language.

Riku goes with the insticts of anyone who's stuck in an elevator - he pushes on all of the buttons, and then after a glance at Agito, he mashes on them. But despite the fact they alll light up, there is no change in there situation, and they are just as stuck as they were before.

"Well," he says. "This is great."

Sarcasm, sarcasm.

"Technically," Riku says, flatly, "I don't think your suggestion is even slightly physically possible."

There's gotta be a comm system here, right? Some sort of working communication rig.

"You are not getting anywhere near me with those teeth," Riku states firmly, and mashes at the buttons again.

"You could at least help me find a solution."

"I'd rather be taken by Xemnas from behind before I ever got with the likes of you," Riku informs him, and then glares up at the top of the elevator.

"I've climbed up worse."

Riku paces the length of the elevator and tosses a glare at Agito in response to all of that.

"How about you fuck off?"

"I'm sure you could. But all you're doing is just standing there."

Riku's voice is almost a hiss for a moment, and then he closes his eyes and counts back from a hundred. "I bet it'd be easier for you if you switched," he suggests finally. "Then you could get away from me."

Easier for himself, Riku means. :D

Riku stares.

"Why the hell not?" he asks, his voice incredulous. He's forgetting that it's best not to ask why Akito does what he does most of sometimes.

"Uhh," Riku says, his voice slow and dry. "Akito, exactly how are we supposed to bond when we're stuck in a high stress situation?"

Is it rude to talk to one personality through the other? Probably. Whatever.

It's just like playing telephone! Except you pay in being punched in the face, instead of nickels and dimes!

"...right," Riku says, and sort of slides down one of the elevator walls to sit on the ground. "He would say that."

"You know," Riku says, taking a deep breath, "Even I'm capable of being civil when you're not doing anything, if I try damn hard. And I'm the one with a psychopath in here."

Referring to Ansem, of course. Although that probably wasn't the best thing to refer to, at the moment, if they were supposed to sort out their differences. Hah.

"Stop overexagerating."

"Some people," Riku says, slowly and carefully, "Learn how to forgive, even if they don't forget."

"Fine," Riku says, looking up at him. His eyes are serious, and perhaps tired. "Then tell me what I need to do to earn it."

"In conversations like this," Riku says, "Typically both parties need to speak."

"I can be fair and logical," Riku says. "And if we're not going to escape this, then it's important to him. So we should just put up with it and work out some differences."

He'll do anything, if it's for Akito.

"Okay," Riku says. "And what do you say?"

Riku raises an eyebrow.

No, that is not an acceptable answer.

"For all we know," Riku says, "Akito manage to bribe someone into making this elevator get stuck for awhile, and this is all his doing for a few hours."

....creepy possibility.

"Because," Riku says. "You're kind of stuck between it, aren't you? It's always gonna have something to do with you, because you're both a part of each other."

And maybe that's something he's never fully understood up until this point.

Riku looks confused now, more than a little lost. "Why would you go away?"

"Do you think that's the only reason he wants you around?" If this were a normal conversation between them, he might smack Agito over the head a little - but it's not, so he won't. "He wants you around because he loves you. And I bet whenever you say crap like that, it makes him feel bad because he thinks he's the one killin' you. So if you want to protect him, you think of a reason to live, you find new ways to breath life into yourself, because I know you love him just as much as he loves you."

"Have you even tried?" Riku asks. Somehow, he manages to repress rolling his eyes. He feels he deserves a reward for this. Jesus, was this how annoying he used to be?

"Like, at all?"

Riku raises an eyebrow. "And? Just because it didn't work out for them doesn't mean it couldn't work for you, yaknow. You seem more inclined to be his type."

Even if that Crow was a dumbass and didn't deserve anything like Agito at all, nope.

"You don't just have Akito, you know," Riku says, carefully. "Even if I act pissed off at you half the time, I do - I would hate it if you weren't around."

He's not looking at the shark At All while he admits this. There's a slight flush spreading over his nose and into his cheeks from admitting such a thing over someone he considered an enemy, but he's ignoring that, too.

"What!" Riku feels his face, and feels the heat on it - not that he'd needed to, mind you, he'd already been aware of the fact he was blushing. But he's absolutely stubborn now -

"I am not. At all. It's just... hot in here."

"Hey!" Riku swats at him. "Don't poke at me, that's annoying."

He sticks his tongue out at Agito, because one immature move deserves another. "I'm not blushing, but I coud make you do it if I wanted to!"
