Bakugou was floored for a second. His heart was pounding in his chest. He had been so close to… kissing Kiri!!!
His first kiss ever! By anyone!
Kiri had always given him soft and cuddly vibes but what he had just experienced a moment ago showed that there was another side to Kiri that was possibly a little more frisky.
He smirked to himself. This was going to be interesting…
Kiri trotted up beside Ochako as she walked to the ticket gate.
“What’s up, babes?” He asked.
“Just needed a hand for a sec, just carrying something, but I wanna know what was about to happen back there with hot blond.” She said with a devious smirk.
“Oh uhhhh…” Kiri’s eye’s darted away. “Umm, well, I asked him out…and..”
“You asked him out?! What did he say?!”
“He said yes!!”
“Oh my god! My OTP!” She squealed hugging Kiri, “I’m super stoked for you, babes, we needs to go out on a group date or something!”
“Oh! Actually, that sounds like a good idea!” Kiri said with a giant grin.
“Awesome! There’s a festival on this weekend, I’ll invite a few other of my friends. You’ll love them. They’re another gay couple and they’re adorable. Their names are Todoroki and Midoriya.”
“Sounds like fun!” Kiri said following her into the booth and picking up some money trays.
At the end of Kiri’s shift he was just finished changing when there was a knock on the locker room door.
“Enter if you’re sexy!” He called out in a cheery voice, thinking it was Ochako.
“That’s definitely me then.” Bakugou’s voice came through the crack as he slowly opened it.
“OH!” Kiri chuckled with embarrassment. “Sorry, I thought you were Ochako- my co-worker. DON’T WORRY SHE HAS A GIRLFRIEND, I WASN’T FLIRTING.” He added quickly, waving his hands in distress then clearing his throat and calming down, “anygays…”
Bakugou smirked and walked towards him, pinning the flustered redhead up against the locker with his hands either side of his head.
“Now.” He said lowly, his crimson eyes burning into Kiri’s. “You were going to check if I was ok before…what exactly did that entail?” He seductively bent his head down to the slightly shorter male.
Kiri’s breathing hitched as Bakugou’s lips neared his.
“BAKUGOU?! WHERE ARE YOU!?” A loud obnoxious voice called from just outside the locker room.
Bakugou growled in frustration.
“Fucking…honestly, Kaminari??” He seethed as he pulled back from Kiri. “I’m gonna kill this mortherfucker.” He growled, all of his malice focused at the door and the approaching blond.
“Baku…it’s ok.” Kiri said soothingly. “Don’t hurt him, he was the one that gave me the push to ask you out.”
“He was?!” Bakugou said in surprise as his eyes shifted from the door back to Kiri.
“Yeah, he was.” Kiri said with a smile.
“Oh…ok then.” Bakugou said as he pushed off the locker just as Kami entered.
“Ahhh, chatting up your crush in the locker room are we?” Kami chuckled.
“You’re only alive because Kiri said nice things about you.” Bakugou snapped.
“You’re so understand and kind Baku.” Kiri gushed as he stared lovingly at Bakugou’s profile.
“Yeah, I fuckin’ know.” Bakugou said with a smirk.
Kiri smiled at Kaminari.
“Well, I’ve found Bakugou’s sheath!” Kami said happily as he gestured for Bakugou to follow. “We gotta get going home dude.”
“I’m coming.” Bakugou huffed. “Just gimme a sec.”
Kami nodded and smiled. “I’ll be out front.”
“Hey, uh, we need to exchange numbers.” Bakugou said turning back to Kiri.
“Oh!! I forgot!” The redhead screeched, reaching into his bag- that was on the floor, for his phone.
They exchanged numbers and insta account details- mostly so that they could follow each other and have a sneaky stalk through pictures later that night.
Kiri sighed happily as he watched Bakugou go. He couldn’t wait to get home and have a look through the hot blond’s insta pics!
“I am SO lucky to have such a hot date! Look at this cutie!” Bakugou gushed internally as he flicked through Kiri’s insta account. By now he was 20 weeks deep and hitting the heart at every pic.
Kiri was just an adorable ray of sunshine and all his photos showed just how happy he was in life. Bakugou knew he needed this kind of energy around him and he smiled to himself, thinking about the fun they would have in the future.
Just then his notifications started blowing up. Kiri was online and liking all of his pictures back!!
Bakugou’s heart skipped a beat every time he saw that ‘red_riot’ had liked a photo.
Then his heart sank.
He had gym pics up from when he used to attend his old gym – Fit Express, and then his most recent pics were all of a sudden from Tone It.
“Shit, shit, shit.” He panicked as he saw that Kiri had paused his likes after one particular gym pic where Bakugou had captioned it.
‘Fit Express. Because out of shape and slow isn’t my thing. #5yearsbaby #mygym.’
Then there came a notification that ‘red_riot’ had left a comment.
‘Good thing ‘Tone It’ now has the hottest guy in the world working out there. #gladyouchanged’
Bakugou groaned with embarrassment and a bit of amusement and buried his head in his pillow. Had Kiri cottoned on to what had happened? Guess it didn’t matter now that they were together.
Kiri chuckled to himself. “So he DID change gyms just because of me!”
He squealed and hugged his phone thinking about how adorable Bakugou was being.
“I love how he’s so tough on the outside but he’s obviously just a big teddy bear needing some love, on the inside.”
Both boys went to sleep that night content and with a big smile on their faces. Super keen to see what lay ahead for them.
Friday, Bakugou turned up at the pool with Kami again, hoping this time to steal a kiss from Kiri but to no avail. Every attempt was blocked and he was getting more and more frustrated.
“Hey Baku.” Kiri called out from the cafe window, later that afternoon. “I’ll text you later about plans for the weekend, ok? You free?”
“Yeah man! Always free for you.” Bakugou called back.
Kiri blushed. “Ohhh my goddd he just flirted like that in front of everyone!! How embarrassing.” He squealed internally, covering his mouth to hide the smile.
