Reaching the water station Ochaco grabbed a cup and filled it with water, handing it to you with a big grin but before you could take a sip she yelled out. “WHATS WRONG Y/N?? IS THE WATER NOT COOL ENOUGH?!”
Before you could ask her what the heck she thought she was doing. Todoroki appeared suddenly beside you.
“Here Y/N let me take that.” He gestured towards your cup.
You handed it to him curiously. Holding it in his right hand he activated his ice quirk and with much control, cooled the cup down. Gently he handed it back to you. “I hope this temperature is more suitable for you.” He added softly.
“Uh… Umm thank you very much Todoroki that’s very thoughtful of you.” You managed to get out despite your confusion at this whole situation.
“You’re most welcome Y/N.” Todoroki replied with a small smile.
You turned your back on Todoroki and faced Ochaco who was desperately trying not to laugh.
You mouthed “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” at her. Your eyes wide; half embarrassed, half pleading her to stop.
She mouthed back “HE LIKES YOU!”
You drank your water and waved your hand dismissively again. The water was a perfect temperature. Stupidly perfect. Like, how did he even know how to get it that right.
You looked to your right to where Todoroki had walked off to and to your embarrassment found him watching you from a distance. You pointed to your cup then gave him the thumbs up. He nodded and smiled thoroughly satisfied with himself.
You and Ochaco headed for the stairs after refreshing at the drink station.
“I need to grab something from the lockers, just wait for me here.” Ochaco said sprinting off down the hall. You waited at the base of the stairs leaning against the wall, running your mind over the things that had happened at lunchtime.
Suddenly Kaminari appeared. Slightly out of breath. “Hey Y/N!” He panted. “Sorry But Ochako sent me here on a mission.”
Your eyes widened “oh no what’s that girl do-.”
You were cut off by Kaminari slamming his right hand beside your head. Before you could take him down with a palm block he lowered his head slightly and shot you a flirtatious smile. “SO! How about it? You and me? Tomorrow night at-.”
Rivers of ice flew down the hall scooping Kaminari up and moving him on at a smart pace. You didn’t even need to look to see who was at the other end of the ice flow.
“Y/N was Kaminari being a bother?” Todoroki asked sidling up to you.
“Uh no he wasn’t he just came out of nowhere.” You said still looking to see where Kaminari had floated off to.
“I see, well I’ll be here in case you need me.” Todoroki said smiling down at you. You turned to face him. You had seen more than enough evidence, thanks to Ochaco.
“Todoroki I need to ask you something, no wait… I need to tell you something.” You started. You paused trying to formulate the sentence in your head and practice it a few times before saying it out loud.
Todoroki waited patiently. Head tilted slightly to the side watching your expression intently.
“Todoroki.. I. –
“Y/N” a bubbly voice called from the stairwell. “ARE YOU READY?? WE’LL BE LATE FOR CLASS!”
“CLASS!” You snapped out of your daydream and turned to run up the stairs. Todoroki grabbed you lightly on the wrist, halting you in your tracks.
You looked back at him curiously. He had his head down, his fringe covering his eyes.
“Todoroki? You ok?” You asked concerned at his change in posture.
“Uh… Umm sorry… yes I’m fine Y/N.” He gently let go of your wrist.
You grabbed his hand as he let go. His head snapped up. Heterochromic eyes met yours.
“Come.” You smiled sweetly. “We’ll be late for class.”
He returned you smile and straightened.
“Soon Y/N, I’ll tell you my true feelings soon.” He thought, allowing you to lead him up the stairs to class.
