Thanks to my beta for handholding and checking, and encouragement. I hope you enjoy this, I had lots of fun writing it!
This was originally written for sanjihan as part of the the JE Just Friends fic exchange, which was an absolute blast to be part of of, and produced some lovely fic to read as well. Go see what I mean here.
( Massu checked his wallet once, and then again, just to make sure. Yes, it was completely empty. There was absolutely no help for it, he was going to have to call ... the one person that Shige had forbidden him to call. )
