His heart beat faster as the train slowed to a stop, jolting him a little as it braked hard.
There you were, waiting in the front of the crowd to board the train, a pair of your favorite coloured knee highs on.
He made eye contact with you and warred with himself as to if he should look away or wave, but by the time he decided to wave you had already hopped on and had walked into the upstairs carriage to sit with him.
“H-Hey,” he greeted you a little nervously.
“Hi!” you replied brightly, sitting down opposite him again- like you had last time.
His eyes were drawn to your knee highs- naturally, and you looked down at them as well at that point. You had noticed him looking at them that last time you had sat opposite him but you hadn’t made any mention, back then.
“Do you like knee high stockings?” you asked him.
He blushed madly and ripped his gaze away, looking across to the left before looking back at you.
“Uh… well yeah… umm…”
“Because I like them too, that’s why I wear them… a lot,” you chuckled.
“They look really good on you,” he said honestly.
His sudden somewhat bold comment took you by surprise and you gave him a bashful look.
“Sorry, that just kinda came out. Don’t take it weirdly…” he added quickly.
“No it’s fine. I just—,”
“Your boyfriend likes them too… I guess?” he then blurted out.
“Oh, I’m… single,” you said sheepishly.
“Same!” he said with a grin… then realized how eager he looked and sounded and quickly dropped the elated look on his face and looked away while scratching the back of his head.
“You? Single?” you asked with surprise, “I find that hard to believe.”
He looked at you and there was a bit of a pause as you both took a moment to bask in the awkwardness of your ‘interested in each other’ type comments.
“Hey, uh, I know we’ve only just met but you’re cool and I was wonderful if you wanted to swap info? Like, insta or snap or something?” he then asked, his hands shaking with the nerves.
“Yeah!” you replied brightly, pulling your phone out.
He quickly grabbed for his too and you exchanged details. You only just managed to get the info swapped when your stop came up and you regretfully stood up to go.
“I’ll see you tomorrow?” you asked with a disappointed smile.
“Yeah,” he nodded, “see you tomorrow.”
You nodded then turned and left, getting lightly off onto the station platform and walking away with him smooshing his face to the window to watch you go.
The train doors closed and it started to head off along the tracks and you looked to your left as it passed, smiling shyly to yourself when you saw him looking at you as it passed.
“He’s so cute! I hope he hits me up,” you thought as you walked off down the stairs towards the exit.
No sooner had you gotten out into the streets, your phone buzzed.
“Hey… it’s me,” the message in your insta DM’s read.
You smiled and opened the message.
“Hey!” you replied.
“Umm… I know this might be a long shot but did you wanna meet up after school today?” he asked.
“Yeah! Where did you wanna meet?” you sent back.
You both sent a few options back and forth then settled on a cafe that was half way between your respective schools then said your goodbyes.
Throughout the day you would send each other funny memes or videos you had saved and chatted about random things – all of this during class mind you, amazingly Sero didn’t get caught by eagle eyed Aizawa.
Then finally the end of the day came and you were first out the gates and off down the road towards the cafe to meet Sero.
He was there already and you greeted him brightly.
“Hey! You got here quick! Did you run?” you teased him, not expecting him to try and answer that comment.
“I-It’s not like I used my quirk or anything!” he replied with an embarrassed stutter, “well… I just didn’t want to be late and—,”
“Oh! What is your quirk?” you asked curiously.
“Umm… this…” He rolled up his hoodie sleeve up and showed you his elbow, bending it to show you where the tape dispensed from.
“Ohh! That’s so cool,” you gushed, “how much can you carry? I’m assuming you can hold your own weight but what about me as well?”
“Yeah, definitely,” he replied with a smile, “did you wanna ride?”
“Uh, yeah?!” you replied emphatically.
“Cool,” he replied, extending a shy hand to yours for you to take and step into his side.
“Hold onto me,” he said as he wrapped one arm around your waist and lifted his arm up then bended it at the elbow, pointing it at a tall building nearby then shooting out a long stream of tape to the side of the structure.
In a split second you were airborne and flying through the air by his side as he expertly maneuvered around the infrastructure using his tape quirk.
His hotness increased 10 fold by how calm and collected he was when using his quirk and you swooned silently to yourself as he took you around a bit then landed back in front of the cafe.
“That was so cool!” you squealed as you both dropped back down to the ground on the doorstep.
“It’s alright,” he replied humbly.
“You’re too modest,” you said with a smile as you regretfully stepped away from him a little as you both entered the cafe- which he held the door open for you to go in first.
After a really nice time at the cafe, eating and chatting together, you both had to get going home.
“Hey thanks again for meeting me again,” he said with a smile as you both left the cafe and stopped out the front.
“Thank you, for inviting me!” you replied.
“I’ll see you tomorrow?” he asked shyly, pulling his beanie down a little.
“On the train, yep! I’ll be there!” you replied with a smile.
You both stood there awkwardly for a little then you turned to him.
“Can I give you a hug…. For the fly around town?” you said, trying to justify your reason for the hug.
“Oh yeah! Totally,” he replied, reaching out to hug you.
He had a very fit body and you melted into him, enjoying the embrace.
After a short time you pulled back and gave him another bashful smile.
“See ya,” you said, backing away.
“Yeah…” he said softly, watching you turn and walk away, the knee high stockings drawing his attention yet again.
As he turned to walk in the opposite direction he balled his fist up with joy and pumped it up and down in front of his face.
“Ohh yeah! I got to hang out with… her!”
