“That’s not all we have,” Dabi said with a smirk.
Sudano shook his head in reply, “not even gonna go there, buddy.”
You smiled to yourself and kept your eyes on the road, giving directions every so often to the brown haired teammate that was kind ernough to put up with your and Dabi’s weirdness.
After successfully getting some greasy food, Sudano drove you both to your respective homes, dropping you off first.
“Ahh, the walk of shame,” you said with an embarrassed chuckle as you hopped out of the car and turned back to thank Sudano.
“Cat-walk it,” Dabi mumbled from the back seat, his mouth full of something oily.
“I’m just gonna duck and run,” you said with a grimace, “Sudano, thank you-” you gave him a genuine smile- “and Dabi. Fuck you.”
“Fuck you too,” he replied with a mouthful, “with hearts.”
“Red ones,” you replied with a grin.
“You two need help,” Sudano muttered, shaking his head.
“She’s my therapist. See you for my next appointment, baby” Dabi replied with a wave.
You snorted with amusement and stepped back, letting Sudano drive away before you turned and headed slowly to the front door, looking like a living, walking, train-wreck.
Fumbling in your [purse, wallet, cardboard box idfk. Whatever you’d carry your phone, keys and random stuff in], that had somehow had magically not gotten lost last night, you found your keys and pushed it into the lock, the distinct crunch of the key teeth into the slot making you wince and hope that your parents weren’t home- and had heard you- to see you entering like a hoe back from her night of debauchery.
Slowly turning the key, you entered at a snails pace, poking your head through the door first to sus out the situation before allowing your body to follow.
No one was home, it seemed, so you quickly tip-toed to the bathroom, beeline-ing it to the shower.
“Aaaaahhh YESSS, hot water for a hot bitch. This is the life right here,” you thought with glee as you wriggled out of your dress and threw your bra off before jumping in the shower, “what a night! I completely forgot to let my parents know about where I was going.. so l’m probably going to hear about that later… man, why do I do this to myself?”
Spending 90% of your shower standing there staring at the tiles, and the other 10% washing yourself, you finally finished and hopped out, feeling a lot fresher than when you had first turned up at the house.
You wrapped the towel around your body and stepped out onto the mat then walked to the door.
“Is that you, Y/N?” your mum called from the study making you jump a little with fright at hearing a voice.
“Yep!” you called back as you walked towards the sound of her voice, “I didn’t know you were home?”
“Much like when we didn’t know where you were last night?” your Mum replied in a sassy, annoyed tone, “I rang Rei and she sent a message to Dabi who told her that you were with him.”
“Oh… umm, yeah, I’m sorry…l just kinda got caught up in the moment… and—,”
“You can save it, Y/N, you’ll be moving out of house soon so you won’t need to tell us where you are anymore,” she replied stiffly, pushing past you and off down the hall.
“Mum isn’t usually like this…” you thought as you watched her go, “she does go off at me but she doesn’t brush me off like this?”
Thinking it would be best to put clothes on before confronting your mum again (in case it turned into a lengthy conversation) you quickly went to your room and chucked something on then went to find your mum who was attending to her plants outside.
As you approached her you could hear her sniffing and you paused with sudden concern.
“Mum?” you asked softly, “are you crying?”
“I’m fine,” she snapped, keeping her back to you.
“No, you’re not?” you said, walking forward and putting a hand on her shoulder, “what’s wrong?”
“Why are you leaving us?” she suddenly wailed, “you have just.. all of a sudden wanted nothing to do with us.”
“Woah, what?” you asked, floored with this outburst, “what bought this on?”
“You don’t tell us where you are. You’re moving out. You hardly even eat dinner with us anymore. This house is going to be empty!” she sobbed.
“Mum,” you said calmly wrapping your arms around her shoulders and pulling her into you, “l’m not going away away. I’m still around. I’ll come and visit, I promise. I’m not disappearing.”
“We’ll never see you again. You’re our only child,” your mum cried, “why don’t you want to stay here?”
“Mum” you said with a sympathetic chuckle, “I’m growing up. You said that yourself. I just want to go and do my own stuff, you know? It’s nothing against you or dad.”
“What’s happening out here?” your father suddenly asked as he slid the door open and stepped out, “Y/N, what did you do to Mum?”
“What?! Why is it my fault?”
“It’s not her, honey, we’re having a moment” your mum placated him.
“And you never told us where you were last night!” your dad snapped at you.
“Honey, it’s fine, we’re talking about it,” your mum said, wiping her eyes.
“‘Sorry dad. I got caught up. I’ll make sure to let you guys know next time but… I don’t think… I don’t think there will be a next time.”
Suddenly it hit you.
You would be sitting your exams soon then moving out.
You had 2 weeks left at home… maximum.
Without realizing it your eyes welled with tears.
“I’m… leaving soon,” you said with a quiver in your voice, “I’m gonna be in my own home.”
Your mum, feeling the sudden emotion in your voice burst into tears again and hugged you while more tears flowed down your cheeks.
“What is…?” your dad said with bewilderment as you and your mum cried together, “I don’t even know what’s going on any more” he added, backing back inside the safety of the house and sliding the door shut.
The rest of the afternoon was spent with your mum, chatting and catching up on things that you hadn’t spoken to her about because you had been busy spending so much time with Dabi.
And the rest of the two weeks went by just like that…
And moving out…
“Is that everything?” your dad asked you as he carried one last box out to the car.
“Let me check,” you said as you ran back into the house, heading for your room.
It was bare.
Nothing was in there, save some crumpled pieces of paper and random other hair clips on the floor.
“This.. isn’t my room any more… ” you thought sadly as you looked around the unrecognizably empty room.
