You woke with a start and flung your arm out, causing Dabi to jump awake as well.
“What? WHAT?” He rasped, struggling to sit up as his heavy lidded eyes forced themselves open.
“I want nuggets.” You said urgently as your head whipped towards him.
“The fuck?” He whispered, laying back down again and raising one scarred arm up over his eyes dramatically.
“Don’t lie down!” You said with a fake irritated voice, smacking his arm emphatically, “I need nuggets!”
“Such a dramatic wake up for fucking, nuggets, though.” He grumbled.
“It’s nuggets we’re talking about here, it’s very important.” You insisted.
“You’re damn lucky I like you a lot.” He muttered as he pulled himself up and crawled over you to get out of the bed.
“You love me.” You replied with a cheeky smile and lay back down on the bed, stretching comfortably.
Dabi found his crumpled clothes on the floor and pulled them on before grabbing his phone from the beside table.
“I’ll go down to the corner shop.” He said as he walked to the door.
“Wait.” You blurted out.
He paused mid-step and looked back at you with his half lidded turquoise eyes.
“C-can you get a pregnancy test too while you’re out?” You asked in a soft, vulnerable voice.
His eyes widened a little and he turned back so he could look at you better.
“I don’t know.” You said quickly, cutting him off, “just… could you get one?”
He nodded, a small smile pulling at his lips as he did his best to contain his growing excitement.
“For the record.” He said as he turned to leave again, “I’m happy.”
“We don’t know yet, you penis puller.” You pouted, trying not to show him that you were catching some of his excitement.
“Chimken nuggers and a pee stick coming right up.” He said loudly as he left the room.
“Oh my god, I hope no one else is home.” You wailed, burying your face back into the pillow as you listened to his disappearing footsteps.
“Hey.” Dabi said, nudging you with his knee.
“HUH?!” You yelped, throwing your head up from the pillow and taking a gasping breath in, dried drool on the side of your mouth. “What are you doing back so quick?!” You asked in shock as you twisted your torso to look back at him.
“What do you mean? I was gone for like… 40 minutes?”
“Did I fall asleep again?”
“…… got nuggets?” You asked, eyes quickly falling on the white plastic bag that had a delicious smell wafting from it.
“Right here.” He said as he shook the bag slightly.
“Gimme.” You said, twisting as you sat up and reached for the plastic bag with both hands, opening and closing your hands like a toddler would when they were reaching for a favourite toy.
“Got your baby stick too.” Dabi said with a smirk, “you gonna do the test now?”
“No. I want nuggets.” You replied in a dead tone.
“You don’t want to find out if we’re gonna have the cutest baby girl in the world?” Dabi asked as he handed you to nugget packet and plopped down beside you.
“No.” You said in vulnerable voice, “I… just want to enjoy my nuggets first…”
“Fair enough.” He said with a shrug as he reached across to get a nugget.
You hissed and clutched the tenders box to your chest protectively.
“No touchy.” You growled.
“Ay man,” Dabi said in a dead tone, “I walked there and back, I deserve payment. You either give me half of the nuggets or you pee on the stick.”
You quickly passed him the box and pouted with faux anger.
“That’s more like it.” He leered before taking a few nuggets and throwing them down. “Hey, when’s your next game against Karasuno girls again?”
“Tuesday.” You said with a mouthful of nuggets. “We beat them in the practice match so the real match will be easy.”
“You’re not gonna play though are you?” Dabi asked.
“Of fucking course I am.” You said, cheek filled with nuggets as you stared at him, “why the fuck wouldn’t I play?”
“Because you might be pregnant?” Dabi replied sarcastically, “you shouldn’t play just in case.”
“I’m probably not, I’m just being stupid.” You said dismissively.
“If you’re so sure, go and take the test then.” Dabi challenged, jerking his head in the direction of the toilet out down the hall.
“Can’t be bothered right now.” You lied, not looking at him.
“You’re scared.” He said bluntly, hitting the nail on the head and riling you even more.
“I’m not scared.” You said sharply, “stop making such a big deal about it.”
“Mmmm.” He replied with a shrug, eating more nuggets and looking away.
You had lost your appetite now, fear that you might actually be pregnant sinking in.
“Shit what if I am? What if I really am?”
Nothing more was said about pregnancy or taking the test and you stayed the rest of the afternoon with Dabi then headed back home for dinner and sleep then got ready for school on Monday. You didn’t take the pregnancy test to your place, it was still at Dabi’s and you told yourself you would take it but just not now.
Tuesday came and you decided to drop my your man’s house for a little bit before going back to school for your game.
“You coming to watch us thrash them?” You called out to him as you pulled your gym uniform on in his room.
“Yeah. Might be a little late though I have a phone interview with Kappuru college.” He said casually as he entered his room.
You nearly passed out.
“You WHAT?!” You screamed excitedly, “did you apply! Oh my god! Are they going to accept you?!”
“Can you breathe, please?” He deadpanned, “I won’t know until after the interview. That’s the whole point of the interview.”
“Oh my god, I’m so excited!” You squealed, grabbing him around the waist and squeezing tightly. “I’ve applied for the scholarship so I won’t hear from them for another few weeks.” You added. “I hope you get in though!!”
“Don’t worry about me.” Dabi said with a lopsided smirk as he patted your head. “I’ll be fine.”
“Shit, I’d better get going.” You suddenly said, “I’ll be late for my game! Let me know how it goes!” You added as you let him go and ran for the bathroom to do one last nervous pee.
As you entered the bathroom you saw the top drawer open of the drawer set closest to the toilet and went to shut it but at the very back of the draw you saw the pregnancy test.
“Should I take it now?” You thought as you pulled it out and quickly read the back of the box.
