After school you two walked home together making light talk and avoiding the topic you had started on the school roof at lunch. You got home and walked inside. Your mum wasn’t home yet so you decided to raid the cupboards for snacks, digging through the bottom shelves where all the good things were kept. +
“Want some chips?” Eijirou asked pulling a bag out.
“Yeah perfect.” You said, returning your attention to pouring the iced tea.
Eijirou smiled at you and sat the bag of chips on the counter top. “Ok Icks, I need to tell you this before I explode.” He said suddenly.
You looked up at him and set the bottle down.
“Ok shoot.” You said, steeling yourself for the worst. You had no idea what to expect.
“Ok, ok, I don’t really know where to start.” He said, leaning on the countertop. “And I don’t know if this is going to ruin everything but I need to get this off my chest.”
You stayed silent, watching him. Your silence encouraged him to continue.
“Uh…Ok so I’ll start with the Kaminari incident yesterday.” He said, shifting his gaze to the counter and adjusting his weight nervously.
“Yes?” You coaxed.
“Umm well I jumped him because I was… Jealous… of how close he was to you.” He said softly, scratching at something on the counter.
“And?” You said, wanting an elaboration.
“And well…I want to be the only one who is close to you.” He added, glancing up at you shyly.
“Yeah ok? That makes sense?” You said, not understanding what the big deal was. He noticed you didn’t get it yet so he continued.
“And you know all those times I went out with Suki?”
You rolled your eyes.
“Well all the time I was with her I was thinking about you.”
Your breathing hitched and your face flushed slightly.
“Wait… is he??”
“And I broke it off with her because I finally realized that I like you more than a friend… more than a best friend… I …
“This can’t be real can it?!”
“I’ve fallen head over heels for you…”
“Is he CONFESSING RIGHT NOW?!”
“I want you to be with me. Forever. Be mine. I love you Y/N. I’m in love with you. I’m crazy about you.” He didn’t know how many ways to say it so you would get it.
Your heart was racing, pain was shooting across your chest from the intense emotions you felt and you just stared at him.
He watched you. Not know what to make of your expression.
“I know it’s sudden and I’m so sorry I’ve come on so strong…. I understand if you don’t feel the same way right now and I really don’t want this to come between us I still want you as my best friend and I-.”
“SHUT YOUR MOUTH SHARKY!” You suddenly blurted out.
He froze. Interpreting your loud tone as dissatisfaction of his confession.
“I’m so sorry Icky.” He whispered.
“You idiot!” You blabbered. Tears filling your eyes.
Eijirou stiffened. “Oh no. Have I upset her again??” His eyes flicked across your features. He so desperately wanted to make everything alright.
“I’ve felt the same way about you for a while too now even though I didn’t realize it either! It was when you started going out with Suki that I realized I didn’t want you to be with anyone else but me either.” You stopped to catch your breath, your heart was pounding like you had just run a marathon.
“That’s why I have been so touchy and weird because you’ve been saying really lovely things to me but then you were with her but then you would hold my hand but then called me your sister.” You gestured wildly with your arms to indicate just how opposed things were.
“It was so confusing and I was so hurt and I cried heaps and-.”
“Y/N!” He yelped. “I am such an idiot! I’m so so sorry! I didn’t even notice how I was making you feel! I feel terrible now.” The compassion in his voice broke you down and you cried, overwhelmed by this whole conversation. “Icky…” He said, making his way around to where you stood. He engulfed you in a big hug. “I’m so sorry please forgive me.”
You nodded into his chest. “Of course I forgive you.” You cried. “I’m just glad it’s all out in the open now.”
“So will you be my girlfriend?” He asked gently.
“I never thought I’d ever get to hear those words from you.” You cried.
“It’s ok it’s ok,” he patted your head. “We’ll never be apart now, I promise.”
You smiled and sniffed heavily. He hugged you tighter and reached under your chin to lift your head. Wiping the tears from your eyes.
“I love you Icky.” He said, smiling with love and compassion in his eyes.
“I love you more Sharky.” You replied with a teary smile.
He looked into your eyes then glanced at your lips. Oh how he wanted to know how it felt to kiss you. He bit his lip and tried to look away but you held him, captivated. You leaned up on tippy toes, bringing your lips closer to his. He cupped the back of your head and leaned down. Pressing his soft lips to yours.
You kissed him back and wrapped your arms around the back of his neck. He kissed you again and brushed his tongue against your bottom lip asking for entrance. You opened your lips and locked into his, kissing him passionately.
He was a good kisser, careful not to let his teeth come in contact with any part of your lips or tongue. There would be some serious damage done if you were to cut yourself on his teeth.
You enjoyed each other intimately for a while then broke away for air. Eijirou was starting to get a little too excited by your proximity and his kisses were getting hungrier.
“Woah Sharky.” You giggled, pulling away a bit.
He blushed and tucked his head into the crook of your neck. “Sorry Icky. You’re just so attractive.” He mumbled.
You giggled happily. “There’s no need to rush Sharky, we have our whole lives ahead of us.”
He beamed. “You’re right Icky! You’re right.”
