“Y/N are you ok?” Todoroki asked, a hint of worry in his voice. “You look a little flushed, do you feel alright?”
“Mmhmm.” You replied, avoiding eye contact.
“Y/N I was wondering if maybe we could train together tonight?”
“Y-y-you what?” You stammered
“I would like to train with you tonight if that’s alright with you? I already rang your father to ask if we could use the dojo for a private training session. He was very obliging.” Todoroki said, a hint of excitement in his voice.
“Umm sure, that sounds good to me” You replied with a smile but you were a little curious about one thing. “Todoroki? What made you want to learn Wing Chun?”
Todoroki gave a small smile as he started. “As you know my quirk is best used as a long range attack and so I don’t have very good close combat skills. I needed a strong martial art to balance these out.” He paused slightly then continued. “Y/N I saw what happened with the vending machine that day.”
“Vending machine what ve-OH.” You stopped. Remembering the incident. “So it was my punch that got your attention?” You smirked slightly.
“Yes but not just that.” He replied. “That vending machine was re-enforced Y/N. And you broke all the bolts and made a dent in the wall.”
Your eyes widened. Shock written across your face. He noticed your expression and chuckled.
“You’re strong Y/N, you’re calm and composed in a fight and you’re talented.”
Your soul was about to leave your body again. “I can’t handle these compliments!!”
“But wait, that doesn’t explain why you picked Wing Chun though?” You quipped. “You deduced my art from one punch??”
Todoroki’s eyes flashed mischievously as he gave you a side glance. “No I also saw what you did to that assailant.” He said, cocking his head slightly. 1
Technically you would have been pronounced dead at this point. Your heart was no longer beating.
Todoroki broke the silence with a deep chuckle. “I come from an influential family, we are educated on many things. Catching 2 glimpses of your fighting style was enough for me to pick that it was Wing Chun. It was just luck that I picked your dojo.”
You were still trying to mentally resuscitate.
“But.” He continued “there’s one thing that doesn’t quite fit the picture.”
“What’s that?” You questioned.
“On the day you rescued Uraraka-san’s cup, she said you jumped to get it. Wing chun isn’t know for its airs above ground?” He eyed you, watching your expression. “Y/N do you have another martial arts style as well as Wing chun?”
“Man nothing gets past this guy!”
“Umm yes actually I’m a black belt in Taekwondo.” You replied bluntly.
“Y/N.” Todoroki breathed. “You truly are amazing. You will indeed be an amazing hero.”
You died for the second time in a few weeks.
“Slow down Todoroki. You’re getting desperate. Don’t lose your cool.” You coached as you and Todoroki sparred.
He hadn’t been able to land any good hits and it was starting to frustrate him.
In the next round you activated your quirk and identified which of Todoroki’s muscles weren’t operating at their full potential.
Todoroki jumped back and paused. “Did you just use your quirk on me Y/N?” He shot at you.
“Yes I did but I’m trying to help you.” You replied defensively. “Wait how did you know I used my quirk??!”
“Your eyes give you away. Usually you have a steady gaze when engaging in combat but when you activate your quirk your eyes dart over your opponent’s body.” Todoroki stated calmly
Your mouth fell open.
“I’ve been watching you closely Y/N, I’ve observed more than you realize.”
“Well that’s for damn sure!”
You were slightly flustered and a bit of pink dusted your cheeks but you did your best to hide it.
“Umm ok, well, I was going to say this muscle….” You pointed to the front of your left leg. “…is tight. And it’s pulling on the front of your pelvis which is restricting movement through your torso and shortening your movements.”
“Can you help me stretch it?” asked Todoroki.
“Uhh sure.” You walked towards him. “Umm lay down on the floor on your tummy and I’ll do a passive stretch to your quads. They’re the muscle on the front of your thigh.”
Todoroki dropped to the floor and did one push up before settling down on his tummy. You held his left ankle and slowly bent his leg. Feeling for where the end point was. You slowly pushed his bent leg closer to his glutes.
Without thinking you reached down and steadied yourself by placing your hand on his lower back.
“Even his back is muscular?”
He jumped at the touch, making you panic.
“It’s ok Y/N, sorry to startle you, I just wasn’t expecting that. You can put your hand there if you need to.” Todoroki had turned his head to look at you. You could feel the heat rising in your face.
“Umm ok.” You mumbled avoiding eye contact.
“Y/N would you mind taking a look at my left arm? I feel some restriction there but not sure where it’s coming from.” Todoroki asked.
“Sure, roll over.” You instructed.
Activating your quirk again you saw some adhesions in the lower fibres of his biceps muscle. “Ahh here it is.” You deactivated and pointed to the spot on his arm.
“This is where the probl-” you stopped. Todoroki has been studying your face softly the whole time you had been working out which muscles was in trouble. You could feel yourself blushing again.
“Uh we should call it a day I think Todoroki. It getting la-“
“Shoto” he interrupted. “And it’s night .. not day.”
You didn’t know what to say so opted to giggle instead. “Uhhhmm ok sure, haha yep it’s a good night, thanks Shoto, yep.” Your brain had short circuited.
“WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SAYING WOMAN ACT NORMAL!”
Todoroki gave you a deep chuckle. Slowly rising to his feet he thanked you for the training and bid you a good night.
You were still standing in the middle of the dojo floor, mentally slapping yourself when your Dad walked in.
“Someone’s got the doki doki for the Todoroki.” He grinned stupidly.
You threw a nearby towel at him. “I do not!” You retorted.
“Well he certainly has the Y/N Y/N for the Y/N.” He replied mischievously.
“DAD THAT DOESN’T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE!” You threw another nearly towel at him.
He laughed a hearty laugh and grabbed you in a bear hug. “Don’t worry, I approve.” He squeezed you. “He’s a good kid, very mature for his age. Much like your father.”
“As if you big goof!” You laughed and fake struggled to get out of your fathers arms.
He planted a kiss on the top of your head. “Come and have some dinner, you must be exhausted from all that flirting with doki doki.”
“Daaaaaad.” you whined
He gave another hearty laugh.
