“Principal Craig!” Iida suddenly said loudly as he spun to face her, “I sincerely apologize for my conduct, this is most unbecoming, I accept any discipline you feel is necessary for—,”
“Iida.” She snapped, “what is the meaning of this? Please come to my office, BOTH OF YOU.” She added sternly, looking at you and Iida over the top of her glasses.
You looked from her to Iida who looked at you then hung his head in shame.
“Principal Craig, I chose to act on my own impulses, please let Y/N go.” He said softly as he kept his head down and balled his fists up by his side. “She tried to stop me but I refused…”
“No, Iida, I’ll come.” You said as you looked from him back to the principal, “let’s go.”
“And Y/N.” The principal asked sharply as you turned to head to the principals office, “do you have a uniform pass for those glasses?”
“Yep.” You replied bluntly, “got this bad boy right here.” You added as you flicked out the uniform pass like it was a Pokémon card.
“I see.” She replied before turning and heading for her office.
“Hey uh, you alright?” You asked lowly to Iida, trying not to sound too concerned as he walked up beside you and fell in step with you.
“I am fine, Y/N, my apologies you had to see that.” He replied as he looked away.
“Why’d you let loose like that?” You asked, looking at him curiously.
“I did not appreciate the way he was talking to you.” He said darkly, “but I let my anger get the better of me when I should have de-escalated the situation…”
“Umm well… thanks though… For beating the shit out of him. He came off second best.” You said with a smirk, “but you got cut though…”
“The cuts are a small price to pay for fighting for your honour.” Iida said seriously as his intense eyes locked with yours from behind your dark shades.
You cleared your throat and looked away.
“Honour?! The fuck? Sounds like a fucking ‘knights of the round table’ kinda shit.” You thought with a smirk.
“I am also glad to hear the relationship has been terminated between you two.” Iida said softly.
You kept looking away from him so your flusteredness wouldn’t show.
“Yeah.” You grunted.
“Now.” Mrs Craig said sharply as you all entered her office. “What happened out there?”
“Dickhead showed up, slung insults at me, squared up and swung first then Iida threw hands, dragged a bitch, you turned up, dickhead ducked, the end.” You said holding your hand up then doing a ‘mic drop’ motion.
The principal scowled slightly and looked sternly at Iida.
“You are a school representative,” she said in a serious tone to Iida, “this is very unlike y—,”
“I am truly sorry.” Iida said sternly as he smacked the palms of his hands to his side and bowed low with his head down, “but I could not stand by and let someone slander my, uh… a …. friend.”
The principals eyes widened and your head snapped towards Iida.
“FRIEND?!” You yelped internally as you stared at him from behind your shades.
The principal sighed and walked around her desk to sit in her chair.
“Iida, you did the right thing by Y/N, albeit a violent outcome; but I do appreciate you standing up for her like that. Now, because this was outside of school hours and there were no other witnesses present I will let this go with a warning. But please, go and see the nurse while she is still here and then head home. I will ring your parents and explain the situation.”
“No don’t.” You said quickly, “umm, I mean, it’s fine, please let me deal with my own ex-boyfriend.” You added.
The principal looked at you and nodded before looking at Iida.
“I will ring your parents then Iida and explain what happened. If they wish to press charges against the man who hit you then I will gladly help.” The principal said with a gentle smile.
Just then the police arrived and knocked on the office door.
“Ah! Gentlemen, please come in.” The principal invited, introducing them to you and Iida before giving a brief description of what happened.
“Would you like to make a statement?” One officer asked you.
“Yeah, I guess?” You replied as you picked up a pen off the principals desk and wrote down what happened on a piece of paper.
After talking briefly with them for a bit you took Iida down to the nurses office.
“Y/N, please, I do not wish to delay you any more.” Iida begged, “I will attend to my own wounds then head home.”
“Don’t be stupid, you don’t have your glasses so you can’t see where the fuck you’re going, so I’ll take you there.” You grunted as the you headed down the hall to the nurses office.
You knocked sharply on the door when you got there, but the lights were off inside, so you slid the door open and flicked the lights on.
“She isn’t here.” Iida commented as he followed you in.
“Well guess what? I’m the nurse now, si’down.” You commanded as you pointed to a chair nearby.
Iida obeyed and sat patiently, waiting for you.
“Now.” You muttered as you pulled drawers out, left, right, and centre, looking for the bandaids and sticky suture things. “Where in the fucking fuck are these bitches?”
“Y/N, please do not stick a ‘bitch’ on my face.” Iida said in a dead tone as you reefed another draw open.
You burst out laughing and looked over at him.
“You’re an id—IIDA!” You gasped, pulling your glasses off to see his face better, “fuck man?! You’re beat up!”
The gashes below Iida’s eye were deeper than you first thought and they had all bruised slightly. On top of that, his ripped up shirt made him look almost…. badass??
You quickly put your shades down on the bench and turned away, then found a bandaid in the drawer and turned back and walked over to him, trying to not get flustered at how close you would have to get to him to apply the bandaid.
“Hold still.” You said in a low voice, talking more to yourself at this point than to him.
You pulled the backing off the bandaid and held it up over a smaller cut on his chin, gently placing it on his skin and smoothing it softly with your fingers.
“There, that should d—,”
Iida was looking deeply into your eyes and your blood pressure spiked as you quickly pulled back.
“S-Stop looking at me like that, Kung Fu class-rep.” You muttered, quickly looking away to get some suture strips and cotton swabs.
Iida didn’t say anything and just looked down, embarrassed that you had called him out for looking at you.
“Here.” You said as you pursed your lips together and turned back to him again, holding up a swab.
