He was too far away for you to yell thank you to and you didn’t want to embarrass yourself like that so you started walking towards him so you could say it in a quieter fashion and not draw attention to yourself, should anybody else enter the hallway at that moment.
“Man, he walks quick, why is he so far away already…this is super awkward him just watching me walk towards him, I should do a little jog…no, that looks stupid too…maybe power walk?”
By the time you got to him you were more angry at the length of time that had lapsed than anything else.
“Why did you have to walk so far away?” You huffed.
“Is that what you fucking came to tell me?” He snapped, irked that you had stopping him walking to complain that he had walked too far away.
“No?!” You snapped back, averting your eyes before launching into your lengthy gratitude.
“Th-thank you.” You mumbled. “There buddy, that’s all you get.”
“Don’t ‘ha?!’ me you overgrown hedgehog!” You yelled, your angry, embarrassed eyes meeting his.
“Tch. Stupid girl. Why did you agree to swim just after eating lunch anyway?” He growled.
“Because they needed me.” You said with a scowl. “Look, all I came to say was ‘thank you’ ok?” You looked away angrily again
He looked at you for a moment, taking in your features.
“Had to do it anyway…” he said, “I’m supposed to be your boyfriend, remember?”
“Yeah, thought that would have been the case.” You said, annoyed at yourself for thanking him when your suspicions of him doing it out of obligation not compassion, were confirmed.
You turned and walked away, leaving Bakugou standing there watching you go.
“I can’t fucking figure this chick out?!” Bakugou thought with a scowl.
The next day after school you were placed on clean up duty. You sighed as you moved all the tables and chairs aside and swept the floor.
You had been teamed with Kaminari but he had disappeared before the end of school, leaving you to do all the work. You had almost finished sweeping when a voice at the door stopped you mid-sweep.
“Need some help, Y/N?” A velvety voice asked.
You looked up and your eyes met two beautiful heterochromic ones.
“O-oh Todoroki! Uh….ummm…”
You didn’t get a chance to get a proper sentence out before he had put his bag down and walked over to you, rolling his sleeves up and awaiting instruction.
His perfect, toned arms drew your attention and you had to bite your lip as he walked up to you and stopped, he was so close you could hear his soft breathing.
“What do you need me to do?” He asked lowly.
“Would saying ‘take me right here on the desk’ be too forward?” You thought as you hesitantly looked up into his face.
“Here, let me finish the sweeping.” He offered, stretching his hand out to take the broom from you, his hand settling on top of yours.
You retracted your hand quickly and scratched your cheek nervously.
“Oh, my apologies Y/N.” He said lowly. “Did my touch make you uncomfortable?”
“No, no, no, not at all I liked it.” You blurted out, then immediately face palmed. “Wait…I mean…”
Todoroki smirked slightly. “It’s fine.” He said, walking past you to continue sweeping. “So, you and Bakugou…” He added as he passed you.
“We’re not really together!” You blurted out, before gasping and covering your mouth.
“I know.” He said casually.
“Wait, what?!” You yelped, spinning around to look at him.
“I don’t know the reasons behind why you’re faking a relationship but I can tell it’s not real.” He said, sweeping the floor gently without looking at you.
You studied the side of his beautiful face as he worked, still not looking at you.
“Plus you have much better taste in guys…” he added.
Your heart jumped and you chuckled nervously.
He looked up at you, “I’m glad you’re ok after yesterday. I was about to dive in but then that idiot beat me to it.”
“Wish it was you that had jumped in.” You grumbled, looking away in annoyance. Then you realized what you had just said and your eyes snapped back to his curious ones . “Oh! Uh! I mean…like, well, you have a water based quirk so you would have been a better swimmer…”
“Y/N, you absolute walnut, what on god’s green earth were you thinking?! saying something so bold like that, OUT LOUD!”
Todoroki just seemed to accept your reason without a word of reply and immediately went back to sweeping.
“Said too much, I guess…” You thought with with a grimace. “Hey uh Todoroki, could you keep it quiet that Bakugou and I are faking? Please?” You asked softly.
“Of course Y/N.” He said, looking back up at you softly before going back to work.
Changing subjects slightly you made small talk about quirks and other things as you continued to clean side by side.
Just being in the same room as this gorgeous guy made your heartbeat pound in your chest and you were glad you got to have some time alone to chat and get to know each other a little more.
After finishing with the cleaning, Todoroki walked with you to the gates and then you parted ways, heading home.
“Mum. I’m in love, organize the wedding for tomorrow.” You yelled as you walked through the door that evening.
“You’ve fallen in love with Bakugou?” She asked as she looked up from what she was doing in the kitchen.”
“What?! No! That tsundere grenade?! I don’t think so.” You snorted.
She laughed. “Well, who is it then?”
“Shouto Todoroki.” You said with a dreamy sigh. “He’s so gorgeous!”
“Ahhh the Shouto child.” Your mum replied with a smirk. “I remember him, two different coloured eyes and white hair/ red hair, parted down the middle. Was very cute even as a child.”
“That’s him.” You sighed again with a bit of a sing song voice.
“I’m pretty sure he was the kid that came with his parents to your aunties wedding.” She said nonchalantly.
