Dabi’s head snapped up the minute he heard your voice.
He peered into the dark, trying to locate your face.
“Y/N! It’s not what it looks like!” He called out, desperately trying to break free.
Yasui jumped at the opportunity to strike while he was distracted and grabbed his face, turning it sharply and pressing her lips against his.
In response, Dabi yanked backwards, pulling Yasui over and dumping her unceremoniously on the ground.
As he stepped backwards, he looked around wildly, catching sight of your disappearing form in the distance.
“WAIT!” He called, sprinting after you.
You weren’t sure if it was just the fact that you needed a good run or you were spurred on by the betrayal you felt, but you easily out-sprinted Dabi and headed for home, your heart throbbing in your chest.
It wasn’t until you got home that you collapsed, hot tears streaming down your face as you sobbed uncontrollably in your hallway.
Moments later there came a pounding on your front door.
“Y/N… please. Please let me explain.”
You knew it was Dabi.
“Get the fuck out of here.” You screamed as more tears rolled down your cheeks. “We are over! Do you hear me? Through! Don’t even try and talk to me!”
Dabi felt a sharp stab through his heart as your words rang out from the other side of the door and he tried to open it but you had locked it.
“Y/N… please… please don’t break up with me. Please just let me explain.” He said sadly, one arm rested across the doorframe as he flopped his forehead onto it.
He could hear you crying on the other side, your sobs getting quieter as you walked off to your room. He called out again, but you didn’t hear him.
For the next 3 hours, Dabi stayed on your doorstep, hoping beyond hope that you would come back and the two of you could talk things out.
He tried texting you.
He tried calling you.
But you refused to acknowledge any of his attempts to contact you so finally he gave a resigned sigh and begrudgingly got up, walking slowly home with hands in pockets, having heavy legs and an even heavier heart.
You didn’t go to school for the rest of that week, you felt sick, hoping that if you avoided Dabi enough you could mentally wipe his very existence from your memory.
On the Friday you ventured out of your house for the first time since you saw Dabi cheating on you and walked to the bubble tea shop that you and Dabi used to go to frequently.
A knot formed in your chest when you remembered all the fun times you had there.
You squashed the feelings down and walked up to the counter to order your drink, then once ordered, you stood off to the side, idly flicking through Instagram while you waited.
There were a group of girls nearby and they were having a massive tea session, gossiping about anything and everything.
“Hey so, Yasui, what happened the other night with Dabi?” One girl asked her friend.
You froze and your ears pricked up at the familiar name.
“Oh, that drag.” A fairly attractive girl said, flipping her hair with sass. “I went to see him because he was ignoring my messages.”
“And?” Another girl asked. “Did you guys… y’know…” She asked as she wiggled her eyebrows suggestively.
The fairly attractive girl snorted.
“No! That stuck up slime ball told me he didn’t fool around anymore because he had a GiRlFrIeNd.” She said in a mockingly condescending tone.
“What?!” Another one shrieked. “Dabi is never serious about any of his ‘girlfriends’.”
“Yeah well, apparently, this one is special.” Attractive girl said in a disgusted tone. “The only good thing to come out of going to see him was that his supposed ‘girlfriend’ actually turned up while I was there so I kissed him and now she thinks he cheated on her and I’ve ruined his relationship.”
The surrounding girls laughed cruelly.
“Oh god, I DID get it all wrong. I need to see him right now.”
You were about to run out of the shop, drink or no drink, when you decided to take some revenge.
Walking up to the group of gaggling girls you smiled sweetly and addressed the attractive girl.
“Hey.” You said, innocently.
“Do I know you?” She asked, looking you up and down condescendingly.
“No you don’t, but I have a gift for you.” You said excitedly.
“What is it?” She asked.
You reared your arm back and lunged forward, punching her fair in the face.
She toppled over and the other girls screamed, mad panic ensuing.
You laughed manically and took off out of the shop, customers peering up over booths and around tables, watching you go.
As you ran you rang Dabi.
“Please pick up, please pick up.” You chanted internally.
“Hey.” His voice said roughly though the phone.
“Hey… Dabi… can… can I see you? Please. Now?” You stammered breathlessly while you ran.
“You sound out of breath? Are you ok? Where are you?” Dabi asked quickly, the worry in his voice coming through the line.
“I’m fine.” You puffed. “Can I see you? I’m coming to your house.”
“You haven’t really left me much choice, Y/N.” He replied, trying to hide the delight in his voice. “Fine, whatever. Come over.”
And with that he hung up.
You kept running and didn’t stop till you were at the end of his street, as you rounded the corner you slowed down to try and catch your breath, bending down and placing your hands on your knees.
You looked up, Dabi was walking towards you.
You stood up, unsure of what to do. You weren’t expecting him to have come to you.
“Uh.. hey..” you said in an unsure voice as he stopped in front of you, hands in his pockets.
“Is that it?” He replied with a smirk. “Hey?”
“Oh really? You’re going to be an ass now?” You shot, annoyed that he was being so rude straight up. “Fine I’ll just go.” You added as you turned to leave.
As you spun around, Dabi grabbed your arm tightly.
You looked back at him. He was staring at the ground.
“Don’t go.” He whispered hoarsely. “Don’t leave again.”
You could almost feel the pain in his words.
You turned to face him.
“Listen, I’m sorry. I got everything wrong. It was my bad to end things. I was upset and…”
He stepped forward and grabbed you into a tight hug.
