Title: Up where we belong
Pairing: For the beginning Arashi friendhip, later on: JunBa, Sakumiya, Ohno/??
Rating: up to R
Warning: None
Summary: To grow up in an orphanage can be really depressing. You miss your family, or you wonder about your family. Why are you here? Where is your mother? Your father? Everything starts getting easier when you have friends who are your family - like in Masaki's, Sho's, Kazu's and Satoshi's case. And when a baby arrives in the orphanage, Masaki has big-brother-like feelings from the very first beginning.
Note: The first chapters are Arashi as children. Masaki and Kazu are around 8 years old, Sho is 11, Satoshi 12, and Jun is 6 months old ;)

Sho stepped into the dining room right behind Kazu and Masaki. He looked around. Satoshi sat on the other side, his shoulders hanging down sadly. But Sho knew it better. Satoshi wasn’t sad, he was just a perfect actor. And the more Sho thought about it, the more his anger rose. He really couldn’t understand the other, and Sho didn’t want to understand him. He would have been so happy to get the chance to stay with a family, and Satoshi? He ruined his whole life.

“Hey,” Sho felt someone pulling on his arm. He looked at Kazu, who stared to the other side of the room. “Is this a new kid?”

Sho looked at a small boy. He must have been younger than Masaki and Kazu, but he wasn’t a baby anymore. He was crying madly, and one of the nuns knelt next to him, trying to calm him down.

“Come on, we need to take care of him,” Masaki said, pulling on Sho’s other arm.

“Hey, boys, we can’t take care of everyone here. We already have Satoshi and you two and then there is Jun. Our group is big enough,” Sho sighed. He knew this glance in Masaki’s eyes. There was no chance that he would keep him from running to this boy.

Masaki looked angry. “You know, Sho-chan, you are sometimes acting like an idiot or I don’t know what, but you are only a few years older, and we are all in the same situation here, so let us go to this boy.”

Masaki had always been caring around the others. From the very first beginning when he had started walking and talking, he had taken care of the boys in the orphanage. Sho remembered how he had searched for a needle and a thread to repair the teddy bear from one of the boys downstairs. It didn’t matter who it was, or if it was one of Masaki’s friends or not, he would always help them if they needed help. And Sho admired him for this – even though Masaki was much younger. He had never been that carefree and sunny. And sometimes he hated himself for the way he was.

Was he a good friend for the others? Why was he so jealous of Satoshi? Something in Sho twitched painfully. No – he couldn’t let the bad feeling taking over him. “I will look after Satoshi, but go and bring that boy along.” Sho smiled at the boys.

Masaki and Kazu nodded and hurried up to the boy, while Sho sat next to Satoshi. “Hey.” Sho looked at Satoshi. “You won again and are back?”

Satoshi looked up and Sho was sure that he had never seen this face Satoshi showed him. He was hurt and sad, and there was no acting behind it, it was Satoshi’s purest feeling. “What happened?”

Satoshi shook his head. “This time was different. I wanted to stay, really. This family was amazing, but they didn’t want me.”

Sho put his hand on Satoshi’s shoulder. “Why?”

Satoshi shrugged. “They wanted a child with talents, and it seems I am pretty talent-free.”

“Pf.” Sho rolled his eyes. “You can paint like no one else here, so don’t tell me that you are talent-free.”

Satoshi had a small smile around his lips. “I think I am not able to show this to any family.” He looked up. “Sho-kun, I am not meant to live with a family. That is my family here.”

Sho gulped. Of course that made him happy, and he had known that for long, but Satoshi had never said it out loud. “What do you plan?”

Satoshi stood up. “I tell the nuns that I don’t want to meet any other family anymore. I want to stay here, and others should get the chance to find a place to stay.”

Sho breathed out. He had hardly seen Satoshi that strong-willed. “Okay, but let’s eat something for now, okay? You can talk with them afterwards.” Sho knew that Satoshi had made his decision, but there was a small hope that he’d maybe think about his decision, before he’d ruin his future with talking with the nuns.


“Hello, I am Masaki,” Masaki said. He knelt on the ground, looking at the boy. He wore blue dungarees and a red-blue squared shirt. On his back he had a rucksack, which was almost bigger than he himself. He cried out loud, and big drops of tears were falling down on the ground.

He looked up and sobbed. “I am Kazuya.”

“Hey, Kazu, no wait, that’s not possible, we already have a Kazu here.” Aiba pointed at Kazu next to him. He scanned the boy. On his knee he had a big plaster with a green turtle on it. “I call you Kame, because of the sweet turtle on your knee.”

“Kame?” The boy sobbed, then he had a small smile around his lips. “I like that.”

“Come now, Kazuya, we show you your room,” one of the nuns said.

“Can I meet the boys again?” Kame asked.

“Sure, but everything later, okay?” The nun said, earning a nod from Kame.

“Till later.” Kame waved at them.

Masaki and Kazu waved back.

When Kame was out of the room, Kazu leaned closer to Masaki. “How do you make this?”

“What?” Masaki asked.

“You talk with someone and no matter what, the other feels good.” Kazu raised his finger and poked Masaki’s nose. “That’s creepy.”

“Hey,” Masaki felt his cheeks blushing. He didn’t know how he did this. It was just him. He didn’t like people who cried, and he wanted everyone to be happy, so he always tried to give his good mood to the others. It wasn’t something he needed to think of, he just did what he wanted to do. “I like happy people.”


“I am so full,” Masaki whined. They had eaten a big bowl of Ramen and two pieces of cake.

“Masaki-chan!” Masaki turned to look at Maria, who had a small bundle on her arms.

“Maria-san.” Masaki stopped walking.

“I wanted to ask if you want to feed Jun and you already told me that you want to change his diapers and bath him,” the nun said with a smile.

“Yes, please,” Masaki chirped. He looked at his friends. He knew the sights. They liked Jun, but diapers and bathing? No – neither of them wanted to do this.

“I will sit in the corner of the room, watching you, okay?” Maria-san said.

Masaki nodded enthusiastically. “Yes.” He turned to the others. “Will you join?”

“Do we have a chance to escape?” Kazu asked.

Maria laughed out loud. “I think Masaki won’t give you the chance to disappear now, but it’s just my guess.” She winked at them.

“He is our purple, so of course you need to join.” Masaki pouted.

“Okay, okay,” Kazu sighed. “Let’s go.”

Soon later they stood in Jun’s room. Masaki sat on the big chair, Jun on his lap. “Try to hold him like this, Masaki,” Maria explained. “And you have to hold the baby bottle like this.” She showed him how to feed the baby.

“Okay, got it,” Masaki grinned. He poked at Jun’s lips with the bottle, but first he didn’t want to open his mouth to start eating.

“Maybe you need to hold it more left,” Kazu suggested. He had his head next to Masaki’s, looking down at Jun.

“Or you need to hold him more up.” Satoshi stepped to Masaki’s right.

“No, wait, do it like this,” Sho said, standing right in front of Masaki.

They all looked down at Jun, who seemed to look from one to the other before he raised his tiny hand, grasping for Kazu’s finger.

“He loves your finger,” Masaki chuckled.

“Yeah, as long as I don’t try to carry him, everything is okay,” Kazu grumbled. “But my finger is good enough.”

Jun’s other hand wandered to the bottle and before Masaki could react he had his lips tightly around the bottle and started sucking on it.

Masaki looked over to Maria-san, who sat there, smiling at the boys like she was proud of them.

Sho brushed with his finger over Jun’s forehead. He chuckled when he saw the baby following his finger with his eyes. “He is really cute,” Sho said with a smile.

“He is,” Masaki said. He didn’t know why he had such a strong affection when it came to others, sometimes he wondered if it was because of his family. Who were they? Did they care about others like Masaki did? Did he have siblings because he enjoyed the company of others so much? Or was Kazu his real brother, even though they totally didn’t look same? He didn’t know it, and probably they would never get to know about it.


“God, that smell is going to kill me,” Kazu said with his fingers on his nose.

Masaki chuckled. “It’s a baby, I am sure you smelled same.”

“Even worse,” Satoshi laughed out.

Kazu’s cheeks blushed. He opened his mouth and shot it without saying something. Masaki giggled at that. It was rare to see Kazu speechless. He always found some bratty words to return, but this time Satoshi checkmated him.

“I can remember how Maria-san told us to take care of the both of you,” Sho said.

Maria-san laughed out loud. “Oh yes, I think the boys had never been that tired before after taking care of you.”

Masaki looked down at Jun and raised him to get him to the bath. “Wait,” Maria-san stood up and came up to Masaki. “I help you.”

Masaki stepped on the small stool to look over the baby bathtub. Maria held Jun in her hands, and Masaki spilled some water and soap over the body. Jun giggled and babbled something, his hands splashing into the water. “He likes to bath,” Masaki said. He turned to his friends, who sat on the ground, watching them.

“You should become a kindergartener when you are grown up, Masaki,” Kazu suggested.

“Mhm, maybe,” Masaki returned, turning his attention back to Jun.

awwww so cute! All of them are helping little Jun take a bath!

Ah, so Satoshi requested to look for a family before? And now, he has entirely given up. I wonder what will happen to them in the future.

(I'm still confused with people going LJ<->DW I might have missed a lot. I'll go check what I missed!)

For the meantime, thanks for this chapter!

so cute

It makes me so sad that Satoshi doesn't want to have a family (the mixed up emotions are here again!) And Sho :( Aw :(

I swear, you intend to kill me with the cuteness and the feels. Baby Jun is too much for my heart! Every time I imagine him squealing I get all mushy inside <3

Thank you <3

Jun's obsession with holding Nino's finger is adorable.
Satoshi makes me sad though.

There are so many difficult emotions here... like, I'm sad that Satoshi doesn't want to have a family (and isn't wanted either :-/ How sad that they didn't want him ) and on the other hand Sho :-(

Oh, we have a new kid in the cirlce <3 And Jun is so cute, I can't! ♥

Ahh it's a bit sad when Satoshi said he's talent free. He's talented! He'll probably see it when he gain enough confident in himself in the future though, right?

Baby Jun seems like a magnet that can gather Masaki, Nino, Satoshi and Jun together <3

Thanks for this!
