You sat down on the grass in the backyard and waited to catch your breath, pulling up images in your mind from the interaction you just had with Shinsou.
“Oh my gooooooddd! He’s so amazing, he’s kind, gentle and really really cute!” You thought as you squeezed your eyes shut and grinned from ear to ear, doing a happy little close fisted arm flail and foot stomp. “And he called me CUTE! GAHHHHH!!”
After waiting a while you hopped up and turned back into cat form, jumping back up onto the brick wall and heading back to where you had dropped your bag.
“AND THEN HE LOOKED DEEP INTO MY EYES AND I NEARLY PASSED OUT!” You squealed to your friend the next day at school as you were sitting down to eat lunch.
“So you’re happy now? You got your head pat didn’t you?” She asked.
You looked at her.
“You’re lying.” She laughed.
“Yeah ok I am, so sue me….damn it!! I wanna see him again!” You wailed pitifully.
“You can.” Your friend replied nonchalantly with a shrug. “You know some of his route home so just meet him on the way home and spend a bit of time with him each day. Easy.”
“It’s not weird?” You asked.
“Well, no? Because he thinks you’re a cat, he doesn’t know you’re a human shapeshifting into a cat so you can see him each day.” She said with a laugh.
“Well I’m going to see him today anyways because reasons and that’s all that really matters.” You said solemnly.
“Any excuse will do huh?” She chuckled with a smirk.
That afternoon you ran ahead to where you had met Shinsou the other day and hid in an alleyway nearby.
“Ok, now just to wait until he comes then I can transform…”
You sat down on the ground and pulled your phone out, flicking the camera on selfie you poked it out from around the corner of the building and watched the screen while you waited.
It wasn’t long before you saw him walking quietly along with his hands in his pockets and you quickly pulled your phone back and put it in your bag before pushing it behind a nearby bin.
“Ok, my time to shine!” You thought as you activated your quirk, transforming into a pretty white kitty and headed out from the alley.
Shinsou smiled when he saw you coming and crouched down.
You trotted happily towards him with tail in the air, meowing softly as you neared him.
“Hey cutie,” he said tenderly with a smile as you came within reached and booped your nose against his fingers before rubbing the side of your face against them. “I was wondering if I’d see you again today?” He said as he continued to smile at you.
“Ooo looks like I’ve got him under my spell already.” You thought with a giggle.
“Do you live around here?” Shinsou asked as he continued to pat whatever part of you he could reach. “I asked you that yesterday but you took off on me…”
You ignored his question and walked a little closer to him, hesitantly rubbing your head on his knee.
He chuckled and scratched behind your soft white ears.
“I really love cats… but I don’t have any…” he said, slightly sadly. “It’s just me at home. I wish I could keep you.”
You looked up into his sad tired eyes and your heart melted.
“Awwwww this poor guy is all alone, he needs company!”
He continued to look down at you softly and scratched under your chin.
“Well I guess this will do, seeing you… I hope I get to see you every day… maybe tomorrow I’ll bring you so-.”
But the tingle in your nose cut his sentence short as you turned and bolted away.
You tore back down the alley you had hidden in in human form and jumped the back fence, disappearing into another connecting back alley and there, behind a dumpster, you shapeshifted back into a human.
“Classy…. nothing like shapeshifting behind a bin.”
Shinsou had been caught off guard by your sudden disappearance and remained crouched in the middle of the street for a few more seconds, disappointed that your meeting had been so short. He sighed and stood up, continuing on his way.
As he passed the alley you had disappeared down he threw a hopeful glance down into the darkness, hoping to see you again but you had disappeared. When he didn’t see you, his face fell and he walked on to his lonely apartment.
Meanwhile you had recovered slightly and stood up from behind the dumpster, walking over to the wall before turning back into your cat form then springing up and over and dropping down onto the other side.
You turned back into a human and walked over to your bag, picking it up and checking that the coast was clear before stepping out onto the street and heading for home.
“Man I really like Shinsou, but my quirk doesn’t last long… I wish there was a way I could extend it so I could have just a little more time with him…”
The next day you waited in the same alley and popped out in cat form just like you had done yesterday, trotting happily towards him.
He smiled when he saw you and crouched down to give you a scratch and a pat when you had gotten close enough to him.
“Hey uh, you kinda took off on me yesterday but I was saying I would bring you something.” He said as he swung his back off his back and unzipped it.
You looked up and into the bag curiously, a smell catching your attention. You sniffed and wrinkled your nose.
“Ugh…something smells bad?”
“Here.” He said proudly, pulling out a packet of dried sardines. “These are for you.”
He opened the packet and pulled one out.
“Ewwww! What the fuck?!” You hissed, arching up and stepping back from him.
“You don’t like them?” He asked sadly, “sorry… I thought you might have liked them….?”
You looked up at him with an apologetic look on your face but there was no way in HELL you were going to eat them!
He saw the look on your face and smiled slightly, “you’re something else you know that? It’s almost as if you feel sorry for hurting my feelings.” He said with a little chuckle.
“Shit! I’m giving too much away.” You thought, looking away from him to hide any more emotion showing.
“Oh well.” He said as he packed the dried sardines away. “Guess I’ll try something else tomorrow…will I get to see you again?”
You were still looking away but without thinking you almost nodded, managing to stop yourself just in time.
“Y/N, you’re in fucking cat form DO NOT nod your head you dumbass you’ll freak him the fuck out and blow your cover.”
Just then your nose started to tingle and you took off running, not even bothering to look back at him.
