Awkwardly, you and Bakugou exited the elevator together once it had hit the ground level and headed for the front door.
“So umm, you coming to the games tonight?” you asked him, making light talk as you stepped outside.
“No,” he grunted.
“Why not?” you asked him, looking at his side profile as you walked.
“I don’t need to give you an answer,” he growled.
“But we’re gonna play games and stuff and we could play truth or dare if you want so you can dare someone to do something stupid or you can ask someone a truth,” you said excitedly.
“Are you playing?” he mumbled, looking away.
“Yeah, I’ll play,” you replied brightly.
“Would you answer a truth?” he asked again, the scowl on his face deepening as he tried to not let any other emotion show.
“Umm… yeah? Why?” you asked curiously, trying to get a better look at his face.
“No reason,” he snapped, hiding his face from you so you couldn’t see him, “guess I’ll have to come then.”
“So you’re gonna come now??” you asked excitedly, “that’s awesome! I’m glad you’re coming!”
“I’m not coming just because you asked me to,” Bakugou lied, scratching his cheek as he kept his face hidden from yours.
“I don’t care, as long as you’re coming,” you replied happily, skipping ahead a little as you neared the store.
Bakugou’s red eyes watched you go, unable to tear them away from your form.
“Uraraka!” you called out as soon as you entered the store, “I’m here!”
“Y/N!” Kaminari called out, “we’re over here!”
You looked back at Bakugou who had just entered in behind you and was watching you.
“Grab a trolley,” you said to him as you spun around to face him, “push me in it.”
“Just push me in it,” you giggled as you jumped into the closest one and sat down.
“Tch, fine,” Bakugou grunted, grabbing the bar of your selected trolley and pushing you towards the voices of your classmates.
As you rounded the corner, Kaminari jumped onto the end of the cart and whooped with delight that made you laugh with excitement.
“Get off, dunce face, this isn’t a free ride,” Bakugou snapped, trying to shake the blond off the end.
“We need ice cream!” you heard Uraraka yell.
“I’ll get it! Ill get it!” you shouted, getting up and leaping out of the cart while Bakugou was still trying to shake Kaminari off it.
“Villain on the loose!” Kaminari yelled as you ran off towards the large freezer at the back of the store.
“You’ll never catch me!” you shouted back as you ran, two middle fingers playfully in the air as you neared the walk-in freezer section and dropped your arms to yank the door open and enter.
It was freezing inside and you shivered as you paused a moment to figure out which ice creams you needed.
Taking one step towards the ones you wanted, you quickly realized you were going to have to be careful as the floor was covered with a film of ice and was very slippery.
“Whoops gotta watch my step!” you thought as you stepped gingerly to the shelf of the ice cream that you wanted.
Selection made, you grabbed two tubs of ice cream and turned to head back to the freezer door.
“Now to get out of here,” you thought, balancing the ice cream tubs on one arm while trying to pull the freezer door open with the other but it wouldn’t budge.
Setting your face with determination, you tried a few more times before putting the ice cream tubs on the ground and placing both hands on the door.
You couldn’t get a good enough footing because of the ice so your yanking on the door was completely futile.
“Now what?” you thought, stepping back and looking the door over, “guess I can yell or bang on the door and hope someone hears me?”
Just as you were about to start yelling the door opened and in stepped Todoroki.
“Oh!” you gasped as you came face to face with him, taking another step back to try and avoid him bumping into you, but slipping over in the process.
Unfortunately, as you fell back, your foot knocked his and knocked him down onto you but he managed to stop his full weight landing on you by landing with his hands either side of your head.
“Y/N,” he said in monotone surprise, “sorry.”
“No, sorry, I kicked you by accident when I fell,” you replied, staring into his beautiful eyes.
“Are you hurt?” he asked, still staring into your eyes.
“No, I’m ok,” you replied, the light fading from outside the freezer as the door closed softly, leaving you both alone in the icy compartment on the floor.
“Umm, well…” You broke eye contact and tried to get up but Todoroki didn’t move.
“Y/N,” he said in a low voice, “there is something I need to tell you…”
Just then the door burst open and Bakugou stormed in, immediately slipping on the ice and throwing an explosion from the palm of his hand to keep himself upright, but scorching you in the process.
“Hey!” you yelled, activating your quirk and pointing your finger at him, laser beaming him into a froze statue then throwing him across the freezer into one of the shelves.
He unfroze the minute he hit the shelves and fell to the floor, jumping up ready for a fight but Todoroki had helped you up and was standing protectively in front of you with one hand out.
“Don’t even think about it, Bakugou,” he said lowly.
“Get out of the way, half and half, Y/N picked a fight with me.”
“I didn’t pick a fight with you, you just came in here and exploded me so I retaliated!” you replied defensively.
“It was a misunderstanding then,” Todoroki said back to you, but his eyes never leaving Bakugou. “Apologize, Bakugou.”
“Apologize,” Todoroki said again, sharply.
“I’m not apologizing!” Bakugou hollered.
“What’s going on in here?” Kaminari asked as he pushed the door open.
“Fuck off, dunce!” Bakugou snapped at the confused blond.
“We’re fine, Kaminari, I was just leaving here,” you said, stepping past Todoroki and picking up the ice cream tubs that were still by the door.
“Woah?!” Kami said when he saw your charred side, “what happened?”
“Don’t ask,” you said with an eye roll as you left the freezer with him, leaving Bakugou and Todoroki in there together.
They stared each other down as you left.
“I want you know that I have feelings for Y/N and I won’t tolerate you treating her like that,” Todoroki said lowly to Bakugou.
“Oh yeah?” What makes you think she would like you over me?” Bakugou snapped back.
