“If he’s in trouble I’m gonna smack him,” Soshi remarked.
“If he’s in trouble then I’m sure Condor is sorting him out,” Jinny replied with a smirk, “no, but, I’m sure he’s ok. Condor is so hot and kind. He won’t be telling Chi off…”
“Keep your head up,” Hiyoko snapped professionally at Chi, “if you look down, you lose sight of your opponent and then you’re open. Never take your eyes off them.”
Chi’s clothes were drenched in sweat, his sides heaving as he held his fists up again and glared at the winged hero who was barely even breaking a sweat.
“How much fucking stamina does this guy have?!” Chi thought, bouncing up on his toes again and rolling his shoulders a little to make sure they were loose enough.
Hiyoko shot forward and placed a firm but not damaging punch to Chi’s ribs and the student buckled and tried to return the punch but Hiyoko was already behind him and had shoved him between the shoulderblades to throw him off.
“Bakugou,” Hiyoko said sharply, “just because I’ve told you not to use your quirk for this round doesn’t mean you’re defenseless. Fight back. You are more than your quirk.”
Chi spun and quickly ran back to striking range of Hiyoko and threw a few very controlled punches, keeping his eyes on the hero the whole time to make sure he didn’t miss anything.
Hiyoko allowed Chi to do his combo- only blocking the punches and not retaliating as he watched Chi’s form.
“Good,” he commented, nodding once Chi had made him step back enough times.
Poor Chi was near spent but he still didn’t let his gaze drop.
“Ok. You’ve done well. You can use your quirk now.” Hiyoko said.
Sweat ran in rivulets down Chisuki’s face and Hiyoko had a quick moment of regret at allowing Chi to use his quirk again.
“That’s gonna be a massive explosion,” he thought with an internal grimace as he cautiously stepped back.
Chi threw himself at Hiyoko, activating his quirk so that he became a human fireball and tucked his body over at the last minute so that he could use himself as a bowling ball to knock Hiyoko down.
His move would have worked- to some degree- if Hiyoko didn’t have wings… but unfortunately, he did; and used them to get into the air and away from the student fireball.
The minute Chi rolled onto the concrete roof- and had not hit any legs, he knew Hiyoko had taken to the skies and prepared for his body to be picked up.
No sooner had he thought it, his body was air lifted and he reached around and behind himself and grabbed for Hiyoko’s legs, clinging on for dear life as he was hoisted high above the city.
“I’ve got him in a stalemate,” Chi thought, “if I activate my quirk again now, he’ll get singed. But if I don’t activate and hold onto him then it will keep him in the sky and he can’t do anything to me.”
“You do realize that if I kicked you now, you’d be falling to your death,” Hiyoko said.
“Yeah,” Chi replied, “but if this were a real life situation then my accomplices below would be doing whatever they needed to do while I’ve been keeping you occupied up here. I don’t care if I die… as long as it saves someone else.”
“The true mark of a hero,” Hiyoko thought- highkey surprised that such a mature response would come from the young Chi.
Hiyoko remained suspended in mid air- his wings flicking out every now and against to keep himself air borne.
He let Chi hang in the air a little more before slowly descending to the roof again.
“Well done.” Hiyoko congratulated the student, “in just 2 sessions you have come a long way. You’ve always had it inside you. You just need to tap into that potential.”
Chi stepped back and looked at Hiyoko.
“Guess I do owe you a thank you for the training,” he mumbled, pushing his hands in his pockets and looking to the side.
“If you ever want more training, come to me,” Hiyoko said with a gentle smile, “better yet, when you have graduated school, let me know. Because I’d like for you to work at my agency as a pro-hero.”
Chi’s eyes lit up and a big proud smile graced his face.
“Re—.” He wanted to asked if Hiyoko really meant it but then thought playing it cool would be the much better idea. “Uh… cool. Yeah. That’d be cool.”
Hiyoko smirked and nodded.
“I don’t want to keep you too late, Bakugou. We have a big day tomorrow so go home and rest. Well done again today.”
“Thank you,” Chi said, before turning and quickly making his way off the roof and down the stairs to get his bag and run home.
The minute the student had left, Hiyoko shot off the roof, making the straightest line he could to Kana’s house and dropped down into the balcony once he had gotten there.
Pulling out his phone, he texted his boyfriend.
“Hey, I’m outside,” he sent to Kana.
There was a pause then Kana sent back.
“Where? I am at the front door and you are not there.”
“Balcony,” Hiyoko sent with the crying laughing emoji.
“Why?” Kana replied just before the curtains were pulled back from the window and his face appeared at the glass door.
As the sliding door was pulled open, Hiyoko floated his feather in and settled it on Kana’s shoulder.
“If I had come in the normal way people might have seen me and caused a scene,” he said.
“And you have wings so it makes sense that you would fly to my window,” Kana signed.
The handsome sensing hero stepped back to let Hiyoko in, then walked to his kitchen.
“Stay for dinner,” he signed, “you need to eat well.”
Hiyoko walked over to the island bench and rested his arms down on it before sliding his backside into one of the high top bar chairs there.
“I can think of something else I wouldn’t mind eating out,” Hiyoko said deviously.
Kana’s head whipped towards his boyfriend and he blushed before going back to pulling things out to make dinner.
“You flirt,” Kana signed with a flustered look on his face, “you catch me off guard.”
“Stealth flirting,” Hiyoko said with a chuckle, making Kana smile.
The sensing hero quickly started pulling out vegetables and meats to make some kind of soup and Hiyoko got up and helped where he could as he chatted about the things that would be happening the next day.
