Your heart was racing again. Had it ever stopped racing today? You weren’t sure you would ever be able to get off this adrenaline train.
He turned to face you. He seemed different. His Heterochromic eyes watched you as you slowly walked towards him. ‘Is he going to end it properly? Why did he call me up here? What’s with that look in his eyes?’ You hesitated.
He saw your hesitation and extended a hand out towards you, a soft smile gracing his gorgeous features. Your heart fluttered.
“Why did you call me up here Shoto?” You didn’t mean for your words to sound so stiff but that’s how they came out. Shoto looked you over gently.
“Y/N I’m so sorry, it appears I have hurt you.” He said, a very soft look in his eyes.
A lump formed in your throat. You nodded.
He took another step towards you. You took a small step back before you had a chance to process what your body was doing. It was acting on its own. A single tear fell. Shoto noticed before you had a chance to look away.
“Y/N.” He breathed. The way he called your name projected his emotion. It connected with you. Another tear fell. You wanted to be in his arms so badly but you were hurting. How could he just up and leave you alone for 3weeks?
Suddenly anger welled up inside you. “HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO ME?” You shouted at him, hot angry tears spilling down your face. You had turned back to look at him.
He was realizing how much you had suffered from his last message before he left.
“Y/N please let me explain.” He still had his hand extended. He wanted nothing more than to hold you and make everything ok.
You just stood there. You couldn’t move. He went to take another step forward but saw you recoil as he went to move so he took a step back instead. Your body swayed forward as he retreated. He took another step back. Your feet moved on their own. You stepped forward. He took another step back, suddenly you were running towards him. He opened his arms and grabbed you as you fell into him sobbing.
“I’m so sorry beautiful, this was all my fault. I caused you pain, I never wanted to hurt you but I did; and that’s all on me.” His words rang in your ears, they were the words you longed to hear.
‘Does this mean he still wants me?’
“Shoto does this mean you still like me?” You looked up at him, tears still steaming down your cheeks.
His eyes were almost glowing. You were drawn into them. Mesmerized.
“Y/N, I have wanted so long to tell you I don’t like you… I love you. I’m in love with you. I couldn’t stop thinking about you while I was away. You complete me. I need you in my life. I am crazy about you.” His eyes burned with sincerity…
Wait what was that noise? Oh… it was you… sobbing uncontrollably.
This is exactly what you had wanted to hear. All your desires were wrapped up in his words. He held you as your cries racked your body. All that pent up emotion came boiling to the surface. He just held you as you cried into his chest, kissing the top of your head every now and again.
As you started to calm down he spoke again.
“Y/N I know it hurt but I had to go.. for your sake… for my sake. I have learned a lot and I would like to think I am stronger now.”
“Where did you go and why?” You sniffed, wiping your eyes.
“When I got your message that Sunday I knew I needed to do something about controlling my quirk. My emotions towards you made me weak. I needed to be stronger for you… for us.” He said, caressing your face. “So I went to see my grandfather. He was a Pro-hero a long time ago. You may have heard of his name? ‘Magnify?'”
“M-MAGNIFY?!” Your jaw dropped. “HE’S ONE OF THE HALL OF FAME ELITES!”
Shoto chuckled softly and ran his fingers through your hair.
“Yes, well, he’s a very smart man and has seen a lot of things. I went for some training with him in the mountains. As you know he has an enhancement quirk.” He paused. “His eyes flash purple when his quirk is in use.”
Your eyes widened as you started to connect the dots. “So he has the-?”
Shoto nodded. “Emotional enhancement quirk…. But he can only use it while touching someone. Kyoka can activate it with just sight.”
You straightened and broke away from his embrace. “So what kind of training did you do?”
“Well, my Pa got me to imagine things that bought on strong emotion… things that made my heart jump, things that scared me, things that caused me to lose my cool. He said, eyeing you coyly.
“Oh I see.” You replied, glancing over his face.
“So I conjured up… you… you make my heart jump.” He turned and took you by the waist.
“I imagined losing you…. That scares me…” he whispered into your ear.
A shiver ran down your spine.
“And well… maybe I should show you what makes me lose my cool.” He added at the end in a low voice as his lips met yours.
You gasped as he pulled you sharply into him. He took the opportunity and slipped his tongue into your mouth, that familiar hot and cold combination sweeping your senses off their feet… but something was different. He was in control. He held you confidently, making the temperature changes deliberately. After a few minutes of heated kissing he broke away.
“I thought you said I made you lose your cool?” You said breathlessly. “You were TOTALLY in control just then!!”
He chuckled again. “Oh I’m more than in control now.” He growled, kissing you on the neck.
“Oh… oh my!?” You were shook.
“Oh hey but what about Kyoka?” You said, suddenly realizing there were still a few loose ends that needed tying up.
“Oh yes her, that’s where I need your help.” He said smiling down at you.
