lights they blind me

[it's been a remarkably slow day at the ADA offices. whether it's the dark forces usually at work in Yokohama are taking a day off or simply a small moment of genuine peace, Dazai doesn't actually care. what it means to him, in this moment, is that he has absolutely no excuse to take off from the office early. he's trapped here, with nothing to do but look upon the faces of his hard working coworkers, and make up excuses for why he isn't working on his backlog of work like everyone else.

for the past two hours, this excuse has been Kunikida. he started small, with the usual constant stream of inane, annoying questions. but he needed to make sure he was doing it right, Kunikida-kun! you're always so diligent, pouring over everything with such concentrated, you really must be putting you're all into it!

he's turned the heat up slowly by shirking his physical form and dissolving into something more liquid, viscous, that oozes from his own desk steadily onto Kunkida's. he retreats when yelled at, of course, but returns a few minutes later, steadily gaining ground, closing in on his target.]

Kunikida-kun, what order are the close case papers supposed to be filed in again? [he's sitting on his desk now. fully aware of what order they're meant to filed in. sounding the most sincere.]

[ at this point in time, the others in the office have turned the other cheek to dazai's usual antics, and that might actually grate on kunikida more than dazai and his relentless pursuance of kunikida's attention himself. the fact that they're just going to go ahead and pretend that dazai isn't very deliberately distracting him... hell, some of them have even managed to slip out earlier than usual. how unprofessional.

and the sole reason dazai is distracting him is because he's annoying, of course. that's it. that's the only distraction. nothing else. it's certainly not the way he keeps looking at him through hooded eyes, or — or anything ridiculous like that. his behavior is uncalled for.

kunikida responds in a short, clipped tone, very deliberately not looking up to meet dazai's ever watchful gaze. it's hopelessly obvious that he's trying too hard. ]

Figure it out yourself. I'm not responsible for your clear lack of organizational skills.

[ that is... very true. his eyes finally flicker up and meet dazai's, soft as honey and boring right into his, and he immediately looks down again. that was a mistake. ]

No. It's the student's fault for not taking notes if he happens to have a poor memory.

[ and he knows for a fact that dazai does not have a poor memory. ]
