“HI! Sorry I’m late!” Deku said breathlessly as he pushed the answer call button.
“Hey! It’s no problem!” Kirishima, the hero named Red Riot, replied.
“Yes, we did see the headlines this morning Midoriya,” Todoroki, the hero: Shouto, said in his calm monotone voice, “perhaps you were preoccupied?”
Deku blushed. “How does everybody know what’s going on?!”
“Oh! Yeah I wanted to ask who she was?” Kirishima asked curiously.
Deku panicked, “Now, now, listen, nothing is… well, like… it’s not really something that the public..”
“So there is something going on?” Todoroki deducted calmly.
“Guys please, we’re still yet to…”
“THAT’S SO MANLY!” Kirishima cried as he sniffed emotionally through the receiver.
“Please keep it quiet!” Deku pleaded, “it only just happened this morning.”
“Congratulations Midoriya.” Todoroki said. “I am glad you’ve found someone.”
“Let’s not get ahead of ourselves now, everything in the tabloids is just speculation, nothing is confirmed yet.” Deku said, “Y/N and I want to talk about how to handle it first before going public.”
“Very wise.” Todoroki said with approval.
“It might be hard on her bro,” Kirishima said. “She’ll be instantly famous by association.”
“I know.” Deku said with a sigh. “It’s a big step, that’s why we need to talk before making it common knowledge.”
“Good.” Todoroki said, “now, back to business. We need to discuss the black market syndicate.” He said authoritatively.
“Oh of course!” Deku said, snapping into professional mode.
*knock knock knock*
You glanced at the clock on the wall. “2:15pm.”
Your heart pounded in your chest.
“Come in!” You called, knowing full well who it was on the other side of the door.
Deku’s bright smiling face poked through the door as he pushed it ajar. “Am I on time for my appointment?” He asked with a bit of a cheeky grin.
“Smack bang, on the dot.” You replied with a bright smile, standing up and walking around the desk to him.
He held the grin and let the door close behind him as he walked over to you, his hands immediately finding your sides, just on your ribcage.
His beautiful shining green eyes gazed at you with so much emotion you almost melted.
“I’ve been thinking about your lips all morning.” He said softly as he looked at them.
“And I’ve been thinking about your hands on me.” You replied with a gentle rub to his arms as he held your sides in his hands.
You looked down at his arms, they bore the scars of all those years of training, his hard work and dedication. You smiled.
“S-sorry my arms are not smooth or…”
“They’re perfect.” You said looking up at him.
This beautiful broccoli bean was just so pure and self-conscious, every day you fell for him more and more.
Your confidence in your own words made Deku’s heart swell and he bent his head down to kiss you.
You made out for a short while then you pulled back.
“Wait! Wait! Hold on Deku,” you giggled. “As much as I would love to just kiss you all afternoon, we’re supposed to be talking about us.”
“Oh yes!” He said, “sorry I got caught up.”
You led him over to the couch that was against the side wall of your office and sat down, with him sitting beside you.
“Now, how did you want to go about things?” You asked as he held your hand.
“Well, as you know, the minute you’re announced as my girlfriend you’re going to be on the cover of every magazine, you’ll be followed by paparazzi, attract your own fans and also… haters… although that’s HIGHLY unlikely because of how beautiful you are, no one could hate you.” He said with a gentle smile.
You giggled. “You’re very sweet.” You said leaning in and kissing him on the cheek. “Yes I’m aware of all the press that will come with this. But I just want to be with you.”
He gently and tenderly let go of your hand and placed his arm around you and pulled you into his side as he relaxed back and sighed, running his other hand through your hair and brushing your cheek. “I’m so lucky to have you.” He whispered lovingly.
You rested your head on his chest as he stroked you. There was a moment of blissful silence as you enjoyed each other’s embrace.
“Oh! I want to tell my mum first before we tell the public. She will be so excited to meet you.”
“This pure cinnamon roll is too pure, his love for his Mum. I can’t.” You thought with a very heart squeezed look on your face.
Thankfully Deku didn’t see it.
“Maybe we should announce at the gala this weekend?” He said happily.
“That’s perfect!” You replied. “That way everyone will find out at the same time.”
He smiled and he hugged you again. “Ok well it’s sorted then! Meeting adjourned!…now,” he said turning to look down at you as he held you in his arms. “I need to uh…” He bent his head down to you, pecking you on the lips. “Feel these, again.” He said as he pecked your lips again.
“What! What is it?” The female voice asked as she was called urgently into the journalist office.
“LOOK AT THE ABSOLUTE GEM I CAPTURED!” The journalist squealed excitedly. “Ok so I was on my way to work, heading down the usual back streets and I see the hero Deku, in a hoodie. I knew it was him straight away right, even though he was undercover, ANYWAY he’s talking to this girl yeah? well, I kinda recognized her from the other headline photo a month back. BUT ANYWAY! CHECK! THIS! OUT!” She basically screamed as she clicked on a picture to enlarge it on her screen.
“OH MY FUCKING GOD, ARE THEY KISSING?!” The female colleague screamed. “FUCK, BABE! THATS MASSIVE!!!! YOU’RE IN FOR A PROMOTION FOR THIS!!”
“I know RIGHT?!” The journalist screeched. “I AM BEYOND STOKED! Right place, right time! Now! How much do you think the other news centers will pay for an image like this??”
“Umm, like THOUSANDS?!” The female colleague snorted. “Demand commission! You’re going to be rich as fuck now!”
The girls high fived, cackling manically.
Your life was about to be thrown into the fast lane.
