Tezuka thinks that he may very well be insane and, if he is, it's all Fuji's fault. When they had started dating, he didn't know exactly what to expect, save perhaps, a little chaos in his ordered world, but what he didn't expect was to feel jealous.
Jealousy, Tezuka thinks, is a useless emotion only borne of insecurity and idiocy. There was no point to it in the least. If a person was jealous, then it implied a lack of trust in one's lover, and if there was no trust, then the relationship wasn't meant to be in the first place.
This conviction of his, however, doesn't explain the tightness of chest and the clenching of fists anytime he hears people talking about Fuji in the halls of school. It doesn't explain why he feels the need to grasp tightly onto Fuji's hand whenever they happen to run into Tachibana while they're out. It doesn't explain why he wants to hoard all of Fuji's games, all his smiles, all his seriousness, and keep it all for himself, and himself alone.
It may be pointless, and utterly ridiculous, but it's there, like a little worm in his mind, his thoughts, and he needs to actively ignore it because he doesn't own Fuji. And, when his hands uncurl, and his chest loosens, he realises he doesn't want to, either. Owning Fuji means every gesture, every kiss, every smile is bought, and not of Fuji's own free will, and that is more devastating than anyone looking at what they can't touch.
