Shizuo can't believe this- this bizarre situation he was in.
He grunted as he could feel his left foot, jammed in the tight gap between platforms, his body, torso down, stuck in a plastic tunnel.
He can't believe he just got stuck in a children's playset.
Izaya was laughing cheerfully at Shizuo's rather...hilarious predicament. "Aw, someone didn't have a happy childhood~!"
That is, until Shizuo gingerly reminded him of his own. "Says the flea who has his lower body now stuck in a slide."
Izaya merely huffed at it. "Hey, I wasn't the one who chased us here!"
It was true to an extent. It had been one of their usual run-ins- Shizuo snarling and chasing after the flea, while Izaya laughed and hopped across town.
It just so happened that today, they ran into a playground, up a children's playset- and Shizuo had his left foot jammed and made him fall unceremoniously onto the platform. He tried to scrabble after Izaya as he ducked into the tunnel by forcing his way in- though it served to get his body stuck like a Swiss roll in the tunnel.
Izaya had laughed at that, and headed for the slide to escape- only to figure out too late that the slide's width is too small for his admittedly small hips- and had also got himself stuck. Two hours later found them back at the beginning of this very tale.
"Oi, I'm not the one provoking!" Shizuo snarled in reply.
"And I wasn't the one who fell for the taunt." Izaya snapped back. His dignity just went down the drain- a parkour master stuck in a children's slide? Unbelievable.
"Get your cellphone and ring someone for help, dammit!" Shizuo shouted back. He could actually break the tunnel if he wanted to, really. It's just that he doesn't want to ruin a child's toy.
Izaya fumbled for the cell, but his position really wasn't helping. It only took a slip of his hands and a short "well fuck" for the cell to slide down and land on the ground beneath them.
"...oops?" Izaya sheepishly said.
Shizuo facepalmed mentally, due to his hands getting stuck in the tunnel. "We'll just wait for help, then."
The next morning, Ikebukuro got a good laugh as they read the morning newspaper headlines.
