“I’m.. I’m sorry, ok? That was my fault. I shouldn’t have even spoken to her but I promise you that I didn’t do anything wrong! I would never cheat on you. She came onto me and caught me off guard but I should have just kept away from her.”
Dabi’s words fell out of his mouth like he had been practicing them for days.
“Dabi, it’s ok, I know. I kinda ran into her today at the cafe.”
“What?! You spoke to her?” He asked in shock as he pulled you away from himself and held you at arms length so he could look you in the eye.
“Uh… no well… we didn’t talk talk.” You said with a scrunched nose, “She said stuff and I punched her.”
“Wait, what?!” Dabi asked, thoroughly confused now.
“Long story. I’ll explain later, but for now I want to apologize for not trusting you and for being so hasty in my decision.” You said as you looked down at the ground. “I umm…”
You didn’t know how to ask him if he would take you back after you dumped him so quickly.
“You want to get back together?” He asked coyly.
“Uh… yeah…” you responded shyly as you looked up at him with doe eyes.
“Hmmmm….I’ll think about it.” He quipped, letting go of your shoulders and turning to walk back to his house.
“Hey!? You can’t just do that?” You said, flabbergasted.
“Why not?” He replied, cocking his head and peering at you over his shoulder.
“Well.. because it’s mean.” You pouted.
He stopped and turned slightly.
“You’re super cute when you beg.” He commented, his voice lowering in wicked provocation.
You crossed your arms and glared at him.
“I’m not going to beg.” You said cooly.
He turned and walked back to you, taking your chin in his hand as he leaned into your ear.
“Well maybe I’ll have to make you beg then.” He whispered lowly before pulling his head back and kissing you lightly on the cheek while running a thumb over you bottom lip.
Your legs went weak at his touch but you managed to maintain your composure just enough to reply.
“Well… I guess you asked me to be your girlfriend the first time so it’s my turn to ask you to be my boyfriend.” You said, almost breathless from your heart racing so fast.
“And…?” He asked, looking deeply into your eyes.
“Will you be my boyfriend?” You asked, tilting your head and giving him a cute look.
“How can I say no to that pretty face?”
He leaned in and kissed you, wrapping his arms around you and sighing deeply as you returned his affection.
Dabi wasn’t a naturally affectionate person but he was under your spell, he didn’t realize how much he liked you until you broke up with him and it scared him, to be honest. He didn’t know he could feel such strong feelings towards anyone.
You made your way into the classroom, pulling your collar up on your shirt because Dabi had caught you in the hallway earlier that morning and had left a hickey on your neck, much to your dismay.
“Ok class.” The homeroom teacher said.
“Please take these forms home to your parents, we are having a school-wide camp for resilience training and to build rapport between the grades.”
The class groaned in unison.
“Camping?? Oh well, at least no school for that duration then.”
You took a form and read it over quickly.
“Wednesday to Sunday.”
At lunch time you and Dabi ate together next to the oval.
“You going to the camp?” He asked.
“Yeah, probably.” You replied, taking another bite of your lunch.
“I wasn’t going to go but if you’re going then I guess I’ll go. I wouldn’t want to pass up an opportunity to get you alone in the bush.”
“Dude, that sounds hella creepy.” You laughed, swallowing the bite you just took.
You jumped up and crouched behind a nearby bush, poking your head and wiggling your eyebrows. “Look I’m a Dabi.”
Dabi leaned back casually and watched you, slightly amused by your antics.
“Stop it, Y/N, you’re being too sexy.” He said sarcastically.
“You have a bush fetish don’t you? Do you have Dendrophilia?” You asked teasingly.
“I don’t even know what the hell that means.” Dabi snorted. “How do you even know the technical term for it though? Is that your fetish?”
“Mmmmm.” You replied, licking a leaf while maintaining eye contact with him. “I love trees.”
Dabi leaned forward and licked his bottom lip, biting it seductively.
“I think I might have a thing for watching you love trees though.” He said, his eyes glistening with amusement.
“You’re such a weirdo.” You snorted, standing up and walking back over to him to continue eating your lunch.
He watched you from the corner of his eye, a smug smile in his face.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” You asked dubiously.
“Oh, just thinking how cute you’re gonna look, french kissing a tree while I take you from behind.” He commented casually.
You had just taken a sip of your drink as he made that comment but it all came flying back out through your nose.
Dabi roared laughing.
“Pervert.” You shouted, jumping up and wiping the juice off your top.
Wednesday morning came and everyone piled off the buses, ready for the school camp.
“There is going to be a short hike to the camping area.” The principal yelled though the megaphone as it made loud, pitchy screeching noises. “Everyone stay in your year classes and follow your teacher’s instructions.”
You grimaced and looked to your right.
Dabi was in the class year above you and he was standing with his classmates off to the side, right in your line of sight and gave you a wink when your eyes met his.
“How long has he been standing there staring at me?” You thought as you looked away shyly.
“OK! Here we go!” The principal yelled again. “See you at the campsite.”
Your class shuffled forward and soon everyone was walking easily along the trail.
You were chatting idly with a few of your classmates when you felt a strong presence to your left so you looked to see who it was.
No surprises it was Dabi, and you jumped in surprise.
“W-what…where did you come from?” You stuttered, surprised he had just appeared magically beside you.
“From heaven of course? I’m your guardian angel.” He said in a grand tone.
“More like hell. You’re the devil himself.” You retorted.
“Thank you.” Dabi sniffed as he wiped a fake tear from his eye. “That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.”
You rolled your eyes.
“Aren’t you supposed to be with your class?” You asked, glancing back to find where they were.
There was no one behind you.
