Wednesday came and went with Bakugou, again, making every excuse under the sun to go up to the cafe and order something and Kiri, making every attempt to be the one to serve Bakugou whenever he came to the counter.
Which, lesbehonest was a total of 7 times for that day. Bakugou had no shame, none whatsoever.
The day that Bakugou was most looking forward to was Thursday, because Kiri would be on lifeguard duty which meant he would be sitting up on the lifeguard box, on display- like a god for all to see.
“Will he be shirtless?” Bakugou wondered that night as he lay on his bed thinking about the cute redhead. “Maybe I should catch a tan that day so I can show off my abs while he’s there?”
Bakugou smirked. He knew he was cut. He prided himself on his physique and he was hoping it would be enough to pique Kiri’s interest in him.
The fated day arrived and Bakugou was ready for his shirtless debut, he had made sure he was waxed and oiled to perfection and had even picked out some swimming trunks that were just that little bit too tight so that they would hug his toned cheeks as he walked.
He greeted Kiri at the ticket booth, as per usual, and paid for Kami, Mina, and himself to go in, wishing Kiri all the best with his first time lifeguarding.
“What time will you be on?” Bakugou asked casually.
“I start just after my lunch break today.” Kiri replied. “You, uh, gonna be poolside?”
“Yeah dude,” Bakugou replied with his best chill demeanor. “I’m always poolside, I’ll be catchin’ tan.”
Kami, who was a silent overhearer to the conversation bit the inside of his cheek to stop himself from laughing. Bakugou was trying so hard to be cool and it was freakin‘ hilarious as far as he was concerned.
Bakugou was always cool and a bit standoffish which added to his slick vibe so this new side threw Kami a bit, he had never seen the scowling blond actually trying to be like this before.
“Sweet! Well, I’ll see you then.” Kiri said with a giant smile.
“Catch ya.” Bakugou replied with a wink and a sexy smirk before strutting off towards Kami.
“He’s walking a bit stiff?” Kami observed, watching Bakugou come towards him.
“Dude? You got a butt plug in or somethin?” Kami asked, gesturing to the way Bakugou was walking.
“The fuck? No?!” Bakugou said with a scowl, “the hells your problem?”
“You were just walking like you had something up your ass, that’s all?” Kami replied with a laugh. Then it hit him.
“Hold up! Bakugou is in swimming trunks and they look a little tight…is he purposefully clenching his cheeks when he walks in the hopes that Kiri will be checking him out from behind??”
Kami glanced over Bakugou’s shoulder back to the ticket booth and saw Kiri literally drooling as he stared Bakugou’s toned tush down.
“It’s working, bro, keep clenching.” Kami sniggered as Bakugou stopped in front of him.
“W-What do you mean!? I don’t know what you’re talking about?” Bakugou stammered, his face turning beetroot red.
“Kiri’s copping an eyeful of your ass.” Kami replied.
Bakugou grinned mischievously without realizing he was giving himself away but Kami saw the grin and knew he had been correct.
“Ok, king of asses, let’s get a spot.” Kami said cheerfully as he turned to look for wherever Mina had run off to.
“I’m not the King of asses, you annoying dunce face!” Bakugou snapped.
“Well, Kiri, likes what he sees, so I’d wear that title with pride if I were you.”
“Oh god, now I have to sit in front of Bakugou with no shirt on for the afternoon,” Kiri thought in a panic as he changed into the lifeguard shorts. “Ochako!!” He called out.
“Yeah, honey bun?” She replied, popping her head through the door.
“Do these make my ass look good?” Kiri asked as he turned around for her to see.
“You have the most perfect gay ass I’ve ever seen, babe, don’t even sweat it!” She said reassuringly.
“Thank you.” He replied wiping a fake tear from his eye. “Now I have to sit in front of ‘literal perfection’ for the next 3 hours without making an idiot of myself.”
“You’ll be fine!” Ochako said. “Plus, I think he’s got the hots for you, babe, so don’t stress it.”
Kiri did the ‘bring it in’ arm wave and hugged her before trotting out the door.
“Thanks, babes!” He called out over his shoulder.
“Make mummy proud!” She called out after him.
Kiri slowed to a casual walk as he made his way to the lifeguard stand, giving Bakugou a little wave as he made his way there.
Bakugou still had his shirt on and was waiting until Kiri was seated on the box before he would make his grand reveal, watching with his crimson eyes as the shirtless Kiri climbed the ladder to the box.
“Look at that body!” Bakugou groaned internally as he licked his bottom lip. “What I wouldn’t do to that ass!”
Kiri got to the top and settled down, hesitantly throwing a glance at Bakugou who was still staring longingly and somewhat seductively at the redhead.
Kiri blushed and quickly looked away, scanning the pool to make sure everyone was ok.
Bakugou, who had been lounging back on the towel propped up on his elbows, sat up and reached for the underside of his shirt.
Pulling it up and over his head, he placed it down before standing up and doing a few stretches and flexes, running his fingers through his hair just for good measure.
“Oi,” Kami said, nudging Mina in the arm while they were in the pool, “watch these two.” He said, jerking his head in the direction of Kiri and Bakugou.
Bakugou was in the middle of a deep hamstring stretch with his backside towards Kiri, bent over and touching his toes and the look on Kiri’s face said it all.
“That’s eye fuck number one.” Mina said with an amused chuckle.
Bakugou then turned and facing Kiri, stretched up bringing his arms above his head and turning his head to the side in an almost submissive ‘take me’ position, while his hands dropped behind his head to stretch his triceps out.
“Aaaand there eye fuck number two.” Kami chuckled as they both saw Kiri bite his bottom lip while he continued to stare Bakugou down.
“I just wish they’d get together already.” Mina whined. “Even a blind man can see they have chemistry!”
