“Uh… ok?” Shinsou mumbled nervously as he glanced back into his room then opened the door wider for you and Kiri to enter.
“Thanks.” You said gratefully as you stepped into his room swishing your tail with happiness.
Kiri walked in after you and headed for Shinsou’s desk. Plopping himself down in the swivel chair there and doing one spin, before stopping it and smiling at you and the indigoette.
“Uhhhh.” Shinsou stalled, walking stiffly over to his bed and sitting down then running one hand through his messy hair to ruffle it up a bit. “What are you after?”
“Umm, well, we need help and it involves your quirk.” You said, a smell in Shinsou’s room catching your attention as you sniffed and flicked your ears around a bit to locate any sounds that would usually be associated with the smell. “Do you have a cat in here?” You asked curiously.
Shinsou blushed with fear at being caught out and tried to lie.
“Uhhh, n-no? Why would I have a cat? That’s against school policy to have a non-caged animal in your room. I wouldn’t do—.”
A faint meow made you and Shinsou look towards Kiri and he looked back at you in shock.
“I-I didn’t make that noise, guys.” He said quickly, turning in his chair and opening the bottom drawer of the desk.
A fluffy black feline face popped out and Kiri’s heart melted.
“Awwwwww.” He coo’d, reaching out to pat the kitty’s head. “What are you doing in here?”
“Please don’t tell.” Shinsou said softly, “she’s a stray and I felt sorry for her because she followed me back here and—.”
“It’s fine.” You said with a soft chuckle, “I won’t say a word… We… won’t say a word… right Kiri?” You asked your red headed boyfriend.
“Secret is safe with me!” He said happily, still patting the cat.
“Ok well, speaking of secrets, it’s time I told mine.” You said sheepishly to Shinsou, who looked back at you curiously, staying quiet so that you would hopefully elaborate. “I have been cursed by a Succubus and I’ve had to feed off different people and it all seemed to be going well. Only that now the people I have fed off are having romantic feelings towards me and it’s getting really complicated and we thought you could help?” You rambled, giving Shinsou a sympathetically desperate smile on the end as your ears drooped slightly.
“Wow. Umm… succubus… ok…” Shinsou said, trying to make sense of your verbal diarrhoea.
“Yeah.” You said softly.
“So, from what I remember about Succubuses…”
“Succubi?” Kiri offered.
“A succubus.” You added, trying to be helpful.
“Yeah them.” Shinsou deadpanned. “They need sex to survive…”
He eyed you curiously as you sweat dropped.
“It never sounds good when said like that.” You replied, pulling a grimace face.
“Ok, so you’ve had sex with a few people then, in order to survive?” He asked.
“Basically, yes.” You replied, turning around and pulling your shorts up a bit at the back to show him the mark on your leg. “See this curse?”
Shinsou shuffled closer to the edge of the bed dropped off the edge to crouch down and look at it properly.
“This is the mark that the Succubus gave me. It had a whole heap of chain links before but every time I ‘feed’ off someone, a chain link fell off.”
“So you have 2 chain links left.” Shinsou mused. “What’s the padlock?”
“That’s the ending finale.” Kiri piped up, “anyone, past or present, can unlock that padlock and they become the true love for Y/N.”
“Interesting.” Shinsou mused again, rubbing his chin as he stifled a yawn and got up and sat back on the bed. “I’m assuming the reason the past ‘feeds’ have become hyper romantic is so that they all try and have a go at the padlock. It just makes sense because this is a curse. It’s not supposed to be easy-going.” He said.
“I never thought of that.” Kiri said, still paying more attention to the cat than the conversation.
“So what I wanted to ask you is…” You said to Shinsou, catching his attention again, “is there a way you could brainwash them- past lovers- into forgetting about me? so that I’m not harassed?”
Shinsou thought a moment.
“I don’t know if my quirk would be suited, to be honest. A memory erasing one would be better but the best I could do is try something on you instead?” He said.
“What would you do?” You asked curiously.
“Well, I’d just try and override the curse with my quirk. When you needed to feed I would just brainwash you into thinking that you were ok and tell you to keep your clothes on until the feeling passes.”
“But what if it doesn’t pass?” You asked. “I don’t know if each time I need to feed has a curse limit.”
“It’s worth a try, Y/N?” Kiri suggested from his spot on the chair, “at the very least it will give us enough time to find someone with a memory erasing quirk?”
“Mmmmm.” You hummed with uncertainty, holding your chin in hand and looking up to the left. “Ok, we’ll try it. I’ll have to keep you on standby, Shinsou, the need to feed strikes randomly and it’s intense from the get go so is it ok if i just turn up here when I need it?”
“Yes of course.” He replied. “I can only give you commands though so I’ll need to be with you the whole time you’re under my quirk.”
“That’s fine.” You said with a nod and a smile, “is it ok if Kiri is here too?”
“Yeah that’s fine.” Shinsou said with a shrug and another yawn.
“Bro.” Kiri said with a small chuckle, “get some sleep.”
“Oh I got 8.” Shinsou replied.
“8 what?” You asked dubiously.
“Hours?” Kiri asked.
“No, minutes.” Shinsou replied, “and not consecutively, but still, better than none.”
“It’s night time now so please get more than 8 minutes…” You said with grave concern.
“Yes. And don’t take them as short naps, have it in one big go.” Kiri added.
“But if you need me and I’m fast asleep, how am I going to help you?” Shinsou queried.
“Good point.” You replied, “ok, go and… rest… with your eyes closed… and uh, hopefully we won’t come calling at some unearthly hour of the night.”
“Don’t be alarmed if I’m still up though, ok?” Shinsou warned.
“Uh, ok, deal.” You replied with a sweatdropped look on your face.
“Thanks for offering to help, Shinsou, that’s so manly.” Kiri said passionately, clenching his fist to his sturdy chest and squeezing his eyes shut.
