A/N: “Ehou-maki” is a sushi-roll eaten at Japanese customary ritual in Feb.3 (of which tradition was recognized nationwide only recently, mostly due to avid promotion by food industry) where people eat thick, uncut sushi-roll with facing the year's “lucky direction”. More detailed info can be found at here .

"It's south-southeast this year, right?" asked Tsuna, settling himself in their usual spot of the school rooftop.

"Yup", Yamamoto rummaged his lunch bag and picked out two thick rolls of sushi. "Here. I made these."

"You did?" Awestruck Tsuna stared a tantalizing sushi roll which Yamamoto handed to him.

"Well, not as good as my dad's but edible at least", grinned Yamamoto. "Hope you don't mind."

"No! Really, I'd rather want yours..." Tsuna's outburst trailed off with blushing cheeks. Oh no, was I too obvious?

"Thanks," Yamamoto responded with his ordinary carefree smile, then quickly positioned his sushi roll onto his mouth. "Now, we got the direction. Are you ready?"

"Um...yes," Tsuna held up his roll, sighing inwardly with relief and a little disappointment.

"Okay, let's dig in!"

Then came a tentative silence, except munching noises from two boys.

Yamamoto finished his roll with just about four bites. Satisfied with his own cooking, he glanced sideway to see his best friend, then...

Oh, my.  Yamamoto froze.

Tsuna was still working on halfway. His tiny, pink lips parted wide to accommodate the thick girth of sushi, making faint gagging sound. His cheeks flushed charmingly and his eyes were teary from near-choking.

Yamamoto swallowed heavily. What it would be like, if that thing in Tsuna's mouth wasn't a sushi roll, but instead, his...

The rooftop door burst opened and Gokudera rushed in. "Yamamoto! How dare you to force my 10-daime into such indecent..obscene...a-act..." Gokudera's accusation eventually died in his own sudden surge of nosebleed.

"Just what!?" Tsuna rolled his eyes and took his unfinished sushi out of mouth. "Gokudera-kun, this is just a Japanese ritual in February!"

While Tsuna was eagerly explaining Gokudera about Ehou-maki rituals, Yamamoto muttered, "hmm, I'm guilty as charged."

というかお題が「方角」と来て、「恵方巻」→「銜える」→・・・ という安直すぎるネタなだけにスイスイ書けました、とほほ。
