"Haru, what's this for?" Makoto asked holding up a necklace he had just received. Green eyes investigated the necklace, inspecting the dark, yet clear green marble that sparkled against the light. Small pieces of metal wrapped around the marble holding it in place in a beautiful and artistic way. It was a small and simple green marble necklace, nothing too fancy or complicated, but still elegant in its own way, just like Haruka.
"I was cleaning out a closet when I found it. You can have it. There was also this one." Haruka tugged at something underneath his shirt, revealing a necklace that he had also been wearing. Much like the one Makoto had, the marble was small and had a vibrant shine in the light and together with the green gem formed a mix of complementary colors that both boys could only smile at.
Pulling the necklace past his hair and around his neck, Makoto's eyes became fixated on the gift Haruka had just given him. It wasn't often that his friend gave him a gift of any type, but when he did, Makoto treasured them. They were usually small gifts, but their sentimental value couldn't be compared to anything else. Haruka could pick a common and simple flower to give to Makoto, and he would still treasure it as if it were the only flower in the world.
"Thank you, Haru-chan! I'll be sure to take care of it." Makoto's words flowed with a sense of excitement as he flashed his usual smile at Haruka, who turned his head away in response, his cheeks slightly tinted in the process.
"Don't worry about it." Haruka mentioned as he started walking towards his kitchen, it was getting close to dinner time, and the teen wanted to get ready to make mackerel in miso. "Also, stop adding the -chan, we're not kids anymore."
As Haruka stepped into the kitchen, the sunlight shining in through the windows illuminated the marble necklace, creating a prism effect within the gem. Shades of blue and green danced inside the glass sphere. The colors caught green eyes, which lit up nearly as much as Haruka's necklace. Walking over towards Haru, coming into the light himself, Makoto's marble necklace began to shine as brilliantly as Haruka's blue one, showing off small tints of blue in the glass sea of emerald.
"They're bright." Haruka pointed out, bringing the marble up from his chest towards his face, looking in at the colors that looked like an ocean. A smile worked its way onto Haruka's face, softening his usually stoic expression. Glancing over towards Makoto, Haruka noticed the other teen staring into his respective necklace.
"Haru, you know blue and green are complimentary colors, right? It’s amazing how well they get along together..." Makoto's voice trailed off into nearly a whisper as his gaze met Haruka's, and they looked deep into each other's eyes.
Leaning towards Makoto, Haruka's hand reached for the taller teen's hand, and laced their fingers together. "Yeah…"
The content moment between teens felt like it could have lasted forever, and neither would have minded. In their eyes, blue and green truly are complimentary colors.
