“I…..” Bakugou paused.
“Well?” You pressed.
“I don’t like you being close with half and half.” He grumbled while scowling and looking away.
“Why?” You asked sharply.
“That’s not a good enough reason Bak-Katsuki.” You said, frowning and tapping your foot on the wooden floor boards. “I can be friends with whoever I want.”
“Yeah, I know that.” He replied angrily. “But you’re mine, remember?”
“No, I’m not yours.” You shot back angrily. “This is fake, remember?”
“Well….we need to start doing a fucking better job at making it look real. It’s going to make us both look bad if you’re getting chummy with shitty icyhot.”
“How do you propose we ‘look real’ then?” You asked with an eye roll and air finger quotation marks around the ‘look real’ part of the sentence.
“Well.” He said, blushing and looking away. “Holding hands is a start.”
“I don’t fucking know? Break time?” He said with a huff, still blushing and avoiding eye contact.
“Ok, fine.” You said.
He relaxed a little. “Ok.” He grunted.
“Ok, is that it?” You said, half turning as if to go.
“I wanna fucking take you on a date too, dumbass.” He said, reaching out and grabbing your wrist.
Your brain momentarily stopped functioning. “A…d-date?”
“Yeah, coz I’m supposed to be your boyfriend.” He grumbled, scratching his cheek to hide the pink tinge to his skin.
“Oh, yeah, of course.” You replied, slightly saddened that it was obligatory… again.
You went to walk away but he hadn’t let go of your wrist yet and he tightened his grip on you as you tried to pull away. You looked back at him curiously, he had his head lowered now with his other hand in his pocket.
“Katsuki, you can let me go now?” You said, shaking your wrist slightly to get his attention.
He didn’t move nor speak.
Suddenly he yanked you towards him and you stumbled back towards him, being thrown off balance by his sharp tug on your wrist.
You face planted directly into his chest and he wrapped his arms around you.
You were speechless.
Bakugou Katsuki was hugging you.
You froze in his embrace, the palms of your hands against his chest.
With your head still face first into him, you allowed his intoxicatingly delicious scent permeate into every inch of your being.
You could feel his heart pounding against your palms and you turned your head slightly to look up at his face, which he had turned away slightly, avoiding eye contact.
“This ball of tsundere can’t be honest with himself can he?” You smirked.
Taken over by the vulnerable moment of this gorgeous blond disaster, you found yourself reaching up on tip toes and placing your lips gently on Bakugou’s cheek.
Retreating your face immediately, realizing what you had just done, you quickly broke away from his hug and ran. Leaving a very flustered Bakugou in your wake.
You bolted out of the shed and headed for the girl’s bathroom. You figured you would be safest there.
“What the fuck am I doing?! WHAT DID I JUST DO?! I JUST KISSED HIS CHEEK! OH MY GOD! I’M A HOE!”
You raced inside and slammed the cubicle door shut.
“I can’t face him again, that was so embarrassing, time to fake my own death.”
You hid in the bathroom for the rest of the break then waited until the noise in the hallway had died down before exiting and going back to the classroom, making your way straight to your seat with your head down refusing to look at Bakugou, who was still blushing madly.
You avoided him for the rest of the day, opting to hide in the girls bathroom every time you had a break.
The soft kiss to the cheek had confused and excited Bakugou. By now he was starting to realize that he had developed feelings for you but he didn’t know how to tell you.
Seeing you getting closer with Todoroki only made him angrier, scared that he would lose to that bastard.
He hadn’t banked on you returning his feelings because who could ever love him? Had that kiss been obligatory or did you like him back?!
Everytime he wanted to talk to you about it you avoided him which pissed him off.
“Stupid dumbass, why won’t she confront me?!”
“Hey Y/N!” Mina called. “We’re heading to the beach this weekend! Wanna come?”
“Yes!” You called back as you scurried out of the school building, looking around wildly to make sure Bakugou hadn’t seen you.
“Awesome!” She called back, “I’ll text you details, yeah?”
“Sounds good!” You yelled back as you bolted for home.
You flung the front door open and screamed at the top of your lungs.
Your poor mum dropped everything she was doing and bits and pieces went flying everywhere.
“Y/N! What the fuck?!”
You fake sobbed as you dropped your bag to the ground and dragged yourself into the kitchen.
“There had better be a good explanation for your re-enactment of the exorcism of Emily Rose!” She said with a scowl, picking up the things she had dropped.
“I like 2 boys, I think, and I don’t know who to choose.” You wailed as you slumped down in the chair and fake sobbed into your arm.
“But I thought Shouto Todoroki was uh…salt bae?”
“Bae, mum, just Bae.” You deadpanned. “Yeah, well he is definitely bae but I kissed Bakugou on the cheek today and now I don’t know what to do.”
Your mum gasped dramatically.
You shot her a scowl. “I’m being serious.” You said in an annoyed tone.
“Oh sorry, I didn’t know that was possible.” She replied with a cheeky smile. “Ok, but go on.”
“Well, he hugged me and I just couldn’t help it and I kissed his cheek and then I haven’t spoken to him since and I don’t know how to address this!”
Your mum sighed. “Ah youth.”
You dropped your face into your hands and groaned then you remembered the weekend plans.
“Oh!! Also! I’m going to the beach this weekend with Mina, is that cool?”
“Wow! Just a second ago you were crying over salt bae!”
“Bae, mum, bae. So can I go?”
“Yes sure, Y/N, if this helps ease the pain of loving two boys at once.” She jeered playfully.
“I’m never going to live this down, am I?” You grimaced.
“Nope.” She replied with a giant smile.
