In Haru's mind, the scenario should have run something like this.
She hadn't even gone a couple of blocks before it had begun to rain. It had been light at first, but with alacrity, it'd turned to fat, heavy drops that soaked right to her skin. She hadn't brought her umbrella, hadn't thought she'd needed it. All she could do was pick up her pace, huddled over herself to keep the rain from getting into her eyes or onto her schoolbag. "So cold," she muttered to herself. If only someone could-
But before the thought was finished, the rain stopped falling. On her, anyway - against the shadow of an umbrella, she could still see the raindrops lashing down. "Um." It was Tsuna's voice. When she turned around, he was smiling a little sheepishly at her. "My house is closer. Let's go there to dry off." And even though she was dripping wet, Tsuna shrugged off his jacket and wrapped it around her, 'so she could stay warm and not get sick'.
They walked back, ai ai gasa style, and when she reached out to wrap her hand around Tsuna's, only to draw back, Tsuna caught her hand and held it. So they stayed, hands holding the umbrella together, all the way back to Tsuna's house.
Fantasies were always softer. The rain was still cold, but her mother had had the foresight to hand her an umbrella before she'd left the house earlier. Tsuna had probably gone home already; she'd stayed late for club activities. She sidestepped a puddle and sighed, twirled the umbrella above her head to send the water flying.
"Oh, Haru, what are you doing here?" She looked up. Tsuna stood in front of her, wallet half out, juggling an umbrella and a shopping list. "Um, if you have nothing else to do, I guess you can stay at my place until the rain stops. It's closer right?" The words were awkward and fumbling. "Everyone else ended up there, anyway. I just need to go buy food first..."
She wanted to hug him a little, so cool, but it was awkward already holding the umbrella and her bookbag. So she just bounced on the balls of her feet, "I'll go on ahead then, okay?" and before Tsuna could give his affirmative, trotted off.
It was a wide, wide smile her face held.
