“Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s out,” Kirishima called out to Momo as he flicked the light switch on and off a few times.
“Does that mean the fridge doesn’t work?” Uraraka asked from wherever she was in the dark.
“~whey~” Kaminari interjected, closely followed by you and Jirou wheezing with laughter.
“I made some cupcakes for tomorrow,” Sato said, “they had fresh cream on them. I hope they don’t spoil…”
“Oh no! We can’t let them go to waste!” Hagakure cried.
“~eh heh heh heeeeeh~” Kaminari cackled drunkenly, immediately followed by another crashing noise and you and Jirou cackling.
“Jirou!” you cackled, “you were supposed to stop him running into the lamp!”
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” she spluttered.
By now everyone’s eyes were starting to adjust to the dark and their collective attention’s were drawn to where Kaminari was floundering on the floor.
“Let’s eat the cupcakes now and we’ll help you make more tomorrow,” Hagakure said to Sato, resuming the conversation.
He nodded. “Ok. I don’t want to have to throw them all out because of the cream.”
The girls quickly made their way to the fridge and opened the door but the light inside the fridge didn’t come on- as expected- so they found the cupcakes in the dark and pulled them out to share.
Kaminari was starting to come too again at that point and was making some coherent sounds amid his usual short circuit noises.
“Are you ok, Kami?” you asked with a chuckle.
“My head hurts,” he grunted, rubbing his forehead.
“That’s because Jirou let you crash into a lamp,” you chuckled.
“You would have done the same thing,” she shot at you.
“This is stupid. I’m going to bed,” Bakugou’s voice pierced the darkness.
“No wait!” you called to him, “wait, we can still play!”
“What? Spin the bottle still?” Kirishima asked.
“No, we can’t see the bottle well enough. Let’s play hide and seek capture!” you said with excitement.
“That sounds fun,” Todoroki’s stoic voice added in from somewhere in the dark.
“An unexpected supporter!” Mina said with surprise, “I’m in too, let’s do it!”
“I’m going to bed,” Bakugou grunted.
“Bakugou is in! Everyone hide and he has to find us! Jail is in this room!” And with that you took off running, your movements spurring everyone else to run like crazy too- Uraraka, Tsuyu and Hagakure, with cupcakes in hand as they tore off down the hall.
“Oi! You can’t fucking just run off you extras!” Bakugou hollered.
“count! Bakugou!” you shouted as you ran.
“Fucking… 1!” He yelled, “I’m gonna blast your ass Y/N!… 2!”
You screeched with adrenaline fueled glee and ducked down the stairwell, aiming for the next level down.
There was a closet that you wanted to use. You thought it would be perfect.
Running as fast as you could, you got to the closet and hopped in just as Bakugou got to 5.
Closing the door softly behind you, you stood there puffing up against it and thinking about your next move.
“I’ll wait till he gets to 10 then I’ll see if I can determine where he’s going. He’ll probably use his quirk so I’ll be able to hear the blasts… and he’ll probably come after me, screaming threats.”
He got to 10 and you heard a bang as he propelled himself with his quirk and your heart rate jumped up.
“Y/N?” a stoic voice next to you said and you nearly peed yourself.
“Who?! Wha— who’s there?!” you gasped with surprise, trying not to call too loudly.
“Todoroki,” the voice said again, “your classmate.”
“I know who you are,” you wheezed, “you scared me! What are you doing here?!”
“Hiding… we’re playing hide and seek capture.”
“Yes. Todoroki. I know,” you said again, “this dense mothertrucker.”
“I am glad that I have had a moment alone with you,” he said and you switched your concentration to him- paused in your listening to Bakugou on the level above.
“You are? Why?”
“I would like to tell you something,” he said calmly.
“Yes?” you asked.
“I understand this is a very selfish request, that you have no choice but to listen to my words… but I have developed romantic feelings for you.”
Your heart did a backflip and you looked towards him in the dark.
“You like me?…”
“Say sike if you’re messing with me. I don’t want to look like an idiot when I reply…” you said, still in a bit of shock.
“I… I am not telling untruths, Y/N,” he replied.
“You truly like me?” you asked again to be sure.
Just then there was a bang overhead and you ducked instinctively but the bang was still on the level above.
“Found you! Soy sauce face!” Bakugou hollered.
“Sero is in,” you quickly said to Todoroki.
“Y/N,” he said, stepping forward placing a hand by the side of your head to hold your attention on him in the dark, “what are your feelings towards me?”
“I do think you’re very attractive,” you admitted softly, looking into his barely visible eyes in the dark, “I… I just need a little time to process everything b-before giving you a reply… if that’s ok?”
“Yes, that is fine. Considering I just told you with no warning,” he replied.
Just then the the door was flung open from beside you both and a panting, caramel scented person, entered and closed the door quickly.
Almost in that same instant Todoroki was bailed up against the side wall away from you and you gasped.
“Woah, wait! What is—? Bakugou how did you get here so quickly?!”
“Y/N?” Bakugou hissed, “what the hell are you and half and half doing in here?”
“I was confessing my feelings for her,” Todoroki said honestly.
“Y/N,” Bakugou said to you, his red eyes almost flashing in the dark, “did you reply to his confession?”
“I just need time to think about it,” you said quickly, feeling very claustrophobic all of a sudden, “Umm… I’m gonna go.”
And with that you quickly left and ran down the hall ducking into the girls bathrooms.
You were sneaking along the stalls when one of the doors opened and you were grabbed and dragged into the stall as one had was pressed across your mouth.
“Mmmmmhmmmfff,” you screeched.
“Ahh! It’s me, it’s me,” Momo whispered harshly, “sorry, Y/N.”
“Oh gosh, Momo, you scared me,” you whispered.
Just then a voice called loudly from upstairs, “Mina is in!”
“Oh no,” you whispered to Momo, “we need to get out of the girl’s bathrooms or she’ll find us!”
As you were about to move, you heard someone else enter the bathroom- and you and Momo froze dead still.
