The blonds loud voice caused you to shrink into Eijirou in a fear reflex and you gripped him that little bit tighter. Eijirou noticed and pulled you to the side, wrapping one arm around you and holding the other out in a ‘stop’ motion sign to the blond.
“Bakugou, you need to stop being so rude. This is my best friend, Y/N. We gave each other nicknames when we were little and that’s what they are. ‘Icky’ and ‘Sharky'” He said proudly, pulling you into him.
Bakugou just glared at the two of you, his aura radiating hostility. Finally he made a ‘tch’ noice and shoved his hands in his pocket, marching back to his seat and plopping down. He dropped his chin in his hand grumpily and looked away.
You looked up at Eijirou with admiration and he looked down affectionately at you.
“Uh? You two wanna get a room?” The yellow haired boy with the black lightening bolt in his fringe, said cheekily.
You blushed and hurriedly looked away, pushing off Eijirou. “Uh..Oh. It’s nothing like that it’s just I haven’t seen Sharky for 11 years.” You replied to the guy, holding your arms out and waving them defensively.
“So you’re single then?” The guy asked, a suggestive hint in his voice and his eyebrow cocked with curiosity.
“Uh…Yes I am but I-.”
“Wanna go on a date with me then?” He asked hopefully.
“Umm well I don’t even know your n-.”
“Kaminari, Denki Kaminari.” The cute guy replied confidently with a wink. Leaning back with his arms resting on the chair and desk.
“Bro?! Seriously? Leave poor Y/N alone she’s only just met you!” Eijirou laughed.
You smiled gratefully at Eijirou and Kaminari looked a little crestfallen but you didn’t know him so you didn’t really care much.
“Oh! Sharky! What’s your number? Let’s exchange now so we can keep in contact!” You said excitedly, pulling your phone from your pocket.
You quickly punched ‘Sharky’ into your phone and he told you his number. You rang it so he had your’s and you saw him enter you in as ‘Icky.’
“Hey do you have anything on this afternoon? Come home and see mum! She would love to see you again!” You squealed and bounced up and down.
“That would be awesome!” He beamed. “Come back to this classroom after school and we’ll go together.” Eijirou was gazing at you lovingly. “Y/N I’m so glad we found each other again.” he said softly, taking your hand and squeezing it.
“Me too, Sharky, me too.” You smiled back at him and returned the hand squeeze.
The guy named Bakugou groaned loudly. “For fuck’s sake can you knock it off? I’m feeling sick just listening to you two extras dribble on.”
You gave Eijirou a sympathetic look and quickly ran to the back door.
Just then the bell rang and you gave him a quick wave before taking off back to your classroom.
You were floating on cloud 9. You couldn’t believe you had found your one and only best friend again after all these years!
Your mum was going to die when she saw him!
“She’s cute dude.” Kaminari quipped to Eijirou as you ran off down the hall.
“Who Y/N?!” He replied shocked. “I don’t see her in that way bro, she’s just my best friend and that’s all.” He rubbed the back of his head sheepishly.
“So you don’t mind if I do a line for her then?” Kaminari asked, leaning forward optimistically.
“Go for it dude.” Eijirou laughed. “But hurt her feelings and I will make. You. Pay.” He said. Punching those last few words out with exaggerated emphasis.
“Ok, dude, ok.” Kaminari said, holding his hands up defensively. “I’ll take good care of her don’t worry.”
“That’s if she’ll even date you dunce face.” Bakugou cut in. “I’ve got my money on her having the hots for her Shark boy here.” He nodded his head in gesture to Eijirou.
“Nah, nah bro, she doesn’t like me like that.” Eijirou laughed again. “We’re just friends.”
Bakugou smirked. “We’ll see, shitty hair.”
“MUM!” You screamed as you entered the front door. “MUM LOOK WHO I FOUND!”
You pulled Eijirou in behind you by the hand and waited for your mum to make her way down the stairs. She looked at the insanely happy you, then at the spikey redhead standing a little behind you and something in her memory triggered. She had seen you with a boy slightly behind you before… but that was when you were 4 years old.
She studied the face of the redhead then her jaw fell open. “Sh-Sharky?!” She stammered.
“Hi Mrs L/N.” Eijirou said with shy excitement.
“Eijirou!” She whispered breathlessly, running down the last few steps and making her way quickly across the floor to him, taking him in a tight embrace. “Eijirou, darling!” She sobbed into his shoulder.
He was a little shocked and froze in place but then let go of your hand and reached it around behind your mum and patted her on the back. “It’s ok Mrs L/N, please don’t cry.”
You also had tears welling up in the eyes.
“Eijirou.” Your Mum said, pulling back from him and wiping her eyes. “Honey I am so so sorry your mother and I never told you or Y/N that you were moving away that day, I have felt sick with guilt ever since.” She started sobbing again.
“Wait….Mum…. you knew he was leaving that day?” You stammered numbly.
She looked at you and nodded sadly.
“I’m so sorry sweetheart we knew it would break your and Eijirou’s hearts so we decided not to cause any extra pain.” Her bottom lip quivered uncontrollably.
You couldn’t say anything. For some reason it never occurred to you that this had all been planned. Eijirou having to move that is.
Eijirou stood quietly and thought for a moment. “Mrs L/N, it’s ok. Please don’t feel guilty, Y/N and I have found each other again so it’s meant to be. I won’t ever leave her again.” He said, turning to you and taking your hand again.
