“It’s fine.” Shinsou said dismissively with a yawn and a gentle swish of his hand.
“Ok, Kiri, it’s been a big afternoon so we should get some sleep too.” You said with a gentle smile and and swish oh your tail, addressing your boyfriend.
“Oh, sure.” He replied with a sharp toothed grin, giving the black cat one last pat before standing up.
“Call if you need me.” Shinsou reiterated as you and Kiri left his room.
You smiled and nodded, promising that you would.
“I really hope this idea works.” You commented to Kiri as you both headed off and down the hall, “I won’t be of much use during it as I’ll be under the spell of the curse and brainwashed at the same time so if you think something isn’t right then please call a stop to it for me.” You added, a slightly concerned look crossing your face.
“Please don’t worry.” Kiri said gently as he took your hand in his, “you know I’ll look out for you.”
He tenderly bought your hand up to his lips and kissed the back of it, gazing at you softly as he did so and melting your heart on the spot.
“You’re so good, Kiri, you’re too good to me.” You said, voice cracking a little as you pulled your hand away then jumped up and clung on around his neck.
“It’s ok, don’t cry.” He whispered as he hugged you close. “I know this is taxing on you too but you’re so strong, the way you have held your head up is so manly.”
“Manly?” You asked with a small giggle, sniffing a little as you kept your head buried into his neck.
“Uh… womanly?” He corrected. “I… I’m just saying it’s admirable, but I really like the word manly.”
“I know.” You giggled, “I know what you’re trying to say, it’s fine.”
Kiri carried you the rest of the way back to your room and set you down at your door.
“If you need me, just call, I’ll have my phone on loud.” He said with a soft smile.
“Thank you.” You said gratefully as you stood up on tiptoes and kissed his lips.
He gave you one last hug then left for his room while you entered yours.
As you closed your door a certain blond, with a black lightening bolt in his fringe, glanced around and snuck to your door.
You were about to get changed then hop into bed but a soft knock at your door caused your ears to flick in its direction and you tilted your head curiously.
“Who could that be?” You thought.
You turned and walked back to the door and opened it to Kaminari, who was fetchingly draped against the wall with a very seductive look on his face, complete with coy smirk.
“Hey.” He drawled.
“Yes?” You asked, tilting your head to the side, completely UN-seduced by his provocative stance.
“Can I come in?”
“Kaminari, I would like to know what this is about before I let you in because I’ve already had a run in with Bakugou and I don’t want the same thing happening with you.”
“Oh.” He said, straightening himself and pulling his arms down to his side. “Uh, well, I umm… just wanted to ask h-how many chain links are left?”
“There are two left.” You said mechanically.
“I know you’re with Kiri and he knows I like you so, umm…”
“Y/N?” Todoroki’s smooth voice called as he walked calmly down the hallway towards you and Kaminari. “Is everything ok?”
“The boy is perceptive.” You thought as you looked towards the duel haired classmate.
You gave Todoroki a look and he caught on immediately.
“Kaminari.” He said in monotone strictness. “Curfew is approaching. It would be best if we were all in our respective rooms.”
“I was just having a chat.” Kaminari said, slightly defensively but with a smile.
“I suggest you leave your ‘chat’ for tomorrow.” Todoroki said coolly as he stepped between you and the flirtatious blond.
“Step aside, Todoroki,” Kaminari said in a slightly irked tone, “this doesn’t concern you.”
“When harassment is involved it certainly does concern me. I’m aware of what is going on and I suspect you are trying to get Y/N alone.” Todoroki said.
“Are you another of her ‘feeds’?” Kaminari asked jealously.
“No, but I have offered, should she need it.” He replied, squaring up in case Kaminari was going to lash out.
Just then Kiri arrived on the scene.
“I had a feeling something was off that’s why I came here.” He said as he approached. “What’s going on?”
“Kaminari’s hyper-romance is making him into a nuisance.” Todoroki said bluntly to Kiri.
“I am not!” Kaminari retorted, “I just can’t stop thinking about her that’s all.”
Kiri sweatdropped and gave you a sympathetic look.
“Ok, we’re all supposed to be in our rooms now so….” he said, leaving the sentence open at the end and hoping the other guys would get the hint.
“Ok, man, ok.” Kaminari said with a sigh as he put his hands up a little in defense, “only 2 chain links to go anyway then I’ve got a chance.”
Kiri gave him an ‘I dare you’ look and smirked, “like I said, bro, may the best man win.”
Kaminari smirked back and walked over to fist bump Kiri, before heading past him back to his room.
“Are you ok, Y/N?” Todoroki asked as he turned around to face you.
“Yeah, I guess.” You sighed, tail and ears drooping.
“Would you like me to guard your door tonight?” He asked.
“We could both guard?” Kiri offered as he walked over to join the conversation.
“Thank you, both, but I’ll be ok, I just won’t open my door. But it’s past curfew now anyway so we’d better get into our rooms otherwise we’ll be in trouble.” You said, glancing down the hall.
“Good point.” Todoroki said with a nod. “Well I’ll be in my room if you need me.”
“Thanks.” You said with a small smile as he turned and left.
“We’ll look for a memory erasing quirk user tomorrow.” Kiri promised you as he reached out and hugged you.
“Thank you.” You said as you gave him a strong hug in return.
“Get some rest now, I’ll come and meet you here tomorrow morning.” He said as he let you go and backed away down the hall.
You gave him a sad wave then went back into your room, closing the door then changing and flopping into bed.
“I just want this over with!” You screamed internally as you rolled over onto your stomach and wrapped your tail over your body.
