“Oh!” He said suddenly realizing he was still staring at you. “Umm could I have these copied…please?”
“Sure.” You said happily, ignoring the pounding in your chest.
He walked towards you and held the papers out, your hand brushed his as you took them and your mouth went dry. He just stood frozen in place.
You turned around and walked back to your station ,starting your printing.
He was still staring at the back of you, his eyes caressing your curves as he waited, you glanced back at him and cleared your throat.
“S-sorry!” He yelped. “D-did you go shopping recently?”
“Yes, yesterday actually, I really needed new work clothes and the pay you gave me was…amazingly generous!” You said gratefully.
“Oh I’m glad!” He said with a smile, his green eyes sparkling.
You handed him back his papers and he thanked you before exiting the room.
“Wow, she looks…amazing…” he thought as he walked back to his office.
He sat down at his desk but was finding it hard to concentrate on his work so he got up and walked back down the hall to where you were working again.
“Miss L/N, may I have your assistance?” He asked politely as he entered.
“Of course Deku,” you replied happily, finishing up the paper you were working on before following him back to his office.
“I’m not that good with collating papers…” he lied, “would you give me a hand?”
“Yes sure!” You said as you came up beside him. He looked down at you, smiling, his eyes contact lingering that little bit too long.
You coughed slightly and looked away. “Uh so what needs to be done?”
“OH! Yes umm..” he proceeded to tell you what he needed help with and it sounded too easy for him to not know what to do but you were just happy to be next to him again. “You can sit at my desk with me if you like?” He added as he grabbed another chair nearby and set it up next to his.
You thanked him and sat down, he took a seat beside you and you started chatting as you worked.
As you sifted through a box of fan letters you commented on them. “There are so many of these!”
“Yes every day they just keep piling up!” He said, “I used to try and reply to all of them but then some of them started to get a little…strange?” He said with a weird look on his face.
“What do you mean?” You asked with a laugh.
“Well one letter said that if I stepped on her face she would thank me?!”
You burst out laughing.
“I…I didn’t know what to say? Why would I step on anyone’s face? Why would she thank me for that??” He asked with genuine concern.
“Do people call you ‘daddy’ too?” You asked with a giggle.
“YES! How did you know???” He asked, dumbfounded. “How could I be their daddy? I…I’ve never…” he blushed.
You laughed heartily.
“Miss L/N, I don’t understand? Why would people say stuff like that?”
“Please Deku, call me Y/N.” You replied.
“Y/N.” He said softly.
The way he said your name made you damn near wet yourself. It was gentle and smooth and it made you blush.
“Uh well… some people, me- you thought internally, just have really strong feelings towards you and they are trying to express how much they would love you, even if you hurt them they would still love you.” You said, doing your best to explain these seemingly odd letters.
“Oh…” he said, “but I’m a hero, I would never knowingly hurt someone?”
“God, this precious bean is too innocent for this world.”
“I know Deku.” You said, smiling at him.
He gazed into your eyes.
There was a moment where you felt like he might actually lean in and kiss you but he didn’t.
Suddenly the door opened.
“Oh!” The receptionist said then a smirk pulled at her lips. “Sorry to interrupt the moment but Deku, the people from Plus Ultra magazine are here and they’re ready for you.”
“I forgot about them!” Deku yelped as he stood up quickly. “I seriously need a personal assistant.” He muttered, but you heard him.
“Umm I could, help? I could organize your bookings and appointments if you like?” You said.
He looked at you. “You’d be my personal assistant??”
“Yes, if..if you’d have me?” You said shyly.
“I would LOVE to have you!…ASMYASSISTANT!” He added quickly. “Would you come with me to this interview/shoot and we’ll organize the paperwork for this job later?”
“Of course!” You said excitedly as you stood up beside him.
You followed him out and the receptionist gave you a wink.
You blushed and giggled softly. You were starting to feel a shift in Deku, his eye contact was different than before.
You praised the clothing assistant for the magic she had obviously woven into these clothes.
“Deku! Lovely to see you again! And I see you’ve bought your girlfriend!” The interviewer said.
“Oh! No no, this is Y/N L/N my personal assistant.” Deku said quickly, “it’s an unofficial title for today so keep it off record please.”
“Of course Deku.” The interviewer said, switching her recording device off.
“I just have a few questions to ask you then we have a small shoot to do so we have pictures for your fans… then we’re done.” She said brightly.
Deku took a seat and the interview commenced, you sat in a chair away from the interview and lights but happily listened in, watching your hero answer the questions with his brilliant innocent smile.
He was a dream to watch, you couldn’t take your eyes off him and it was obvious that he was painfully aware of your presence too, stealing glances at you whenever he could.
“Ok! Thank you Deku, that’s all the questions done, now for the photo shoot,” the interviewer said pointing to a small set that had been made up on the side.
Deku walked over and stood in the middle of the set, allowing the photographers and make you artists to arrange him and direct his movements.
The shoot started and he started posing under the directions of the photographer. One picture in particular took your breath away tho, he was smiling directly at the camera with one arm raised up, his fingers combing through his curly green locks and he just oozed sex appeal without even realizing it.
You almost had to fan yourself.
