“Are you comfortable, Y/N?” Shouto asked lowly as he held you against himself.
You nodded, you were more enraptured with his scent to give him a verbal reply.
He smelled like campfires and wind in the snow, it was an intriguing mixture and you breathed in deeply, trying to commit it to memory.
Shouto was enjoying having you alone without the interference of the ‘exploding nuisance’ and he wanted to ask you so many questions but didn’t want to come off as needy, pushy or nosey but he just had to know where he stood.
“Y-Y/N…I apologize if this is sudden…” he said, pausing to collect his thoughts. “But I would like to know if…”
Your heart rate increased.
“If…you see me as more than a friend? I know now is not the right time for me to ask you to consider a relationship with me but—,”
“Shouto…” you replied, turning your head to look up into his eyes as he gazed down at you. “I definitely see you as more than a friend…
I’m…I…really like you…” you mumbled shyly, blinking as you found it hard to maintain eye contact. “You didn’t have to try and prove your worthiness to me this weekend, I already know how wonderful you are.”
Shouto blushed and glanced to the side. “I just…I get jealous…when I see you with Bakugou but I understand the situation is complicated. It’s just….I can see he has feelings for you.”
You nodded. “Yeah I know.” You said, turning your head back around and nestling into him again. “And I’m kinda torn about that too because I think I like him a little too…” you thought.
“Like I said before though, Y/N, I will wait for you, until you are ready to make your decision.”
“Thank you Shouto.” You said, looking back at him.
Suddenly he looked up. “Midoriya.” He said as he looked up the cliff.
You looked where he was looking but couldn’t see anyone.
You breathed in and let out a yell.
“MIDORIYA!!” You hollered.
“Y/N?!” The reply came, “WHERE ARE YOU??”
“OVER THE SIDE OF THE CLIFF!” You yelled back.
His beautiful freckles face popped over the edge as he looked over and saw you and Shouto.
“TODOROKI?!” He yelped. “ARE YOU GUYS OK?”
“We’re fine, Midoriya, but I just need some help getting Y/N back up, she’s injured.” Shouto called back.
Midoriya looked back down the cliff and decided he could jump down with his quirk so he activated and leapt from the rocks above, green lightening coursing through his veins as he absorbed the impact on landing.
“What happeneAHHHHHHHH?!” He screamed when he noticed the jaguar ice statue.
“Correct response, Midoriya.” You called out.
“DID IT TRY AND ATTACK YOU BOTH?!” He yelped.
“No only me, but Shouto got to me just in time.” You said with relief.
“That’s Todoroki for you, always turns up right when you need him.” Midoriya replied with an admiring gaze at the duel haired boy still holding you in his embrace. “Uh so… where are you injured, Y/N?” Midoriya asked, rubbing the back of his neck bashfully.
The position Shouto had you in, in between his legs, was causing Midoriya to get a little flustered. You two looked very comfortable with each other but weren’t you and Bakugou supposed to be going out??
“Here Midoriya.” Shouto said as he lifted his right hand off your knee, revealing the swelling.
“Oh it see! You were cooling her knee with your quirk, Todoroki! Very impressive!” Midoriya fanboyed.
Shouto nodded. “I don’t know how many other injuries she has so I was hesitant to move her too much.”
“Should I alert Aizawa?” Midoriya asked.
“Yes I think so, best to get a stretcher.” Shouto replied.
“Of course!” Midoriya said enthusiastically, “will you be ok here while I get help?”
“Yes, we’ll be fine.” Shouto said, placing his hand back on your knee.
Midoriya nodded and stood back a bit, crouching slightly as he activated his quirk then jumping his way back up the cliff.
You and Shouto chatted until Midoriya returned with Aizawa and a few other classmates, who all set about helping get you up the cliff again.
Momo created a stretcher and Tokoyami, with dark shadow, helped to guide you up while Shouto used his quirk to create a pillar that he stood on to get him back up the cliff.
Aizawa had called for an ambulance and you were carried to the back of it and loaded in.
Shouto insisted on going with you to the hospital and climbed in the back as well, while Aizawa grumbled about injuries and paperwork.
Shouto was very attentive to you as they moved you from stretcher to CT scan bed and then onto another bed and wheeled you to the holding bay.
You had finally been given your phone so you could text your mum and tell her what happened and Shouto left to get some food for you both while you conversed with her.
You were near the nurses desk and there were two younger nurses chatting about a particularly interesting patient in bed bay 7 that you just happened to overhear.
“He’s grumpy but good looking.” One said.
The other giggled, “he’s all yours, babe, you’re probably closer to his age… and I don’t go for blonds.”
Your interest piqued.
“Grumpy blond??? Surely not.”
You buzzed for the nurse and she walked over to you.
“Hello miss L/N, what can I do for you?”
“Oh! Uh, sorry I just had a question…the guy in bay 7…it’s a wild guess but he wouldn’t happen to be Katsuki Bakugou, would he?”
The nurse looked at you curiously.
“I am unable to disclose names of other patients but if I have your permission to disclose your name to the patient in bay 7 and he happens to know you, then that’s ok.”
“That’s fine.” You replied, “tell him I say hello.”
She nodded and walked out.
A few minutes she returned. “I have a message from the patient in bay 7,” she said, then paused. “Please excuse my language as I am going to repeat the patients exact words.”
You stifled a giggle.
The nurse took a deep breath in and repeated Bakugou’s words exactly.
“What the actual fuck is Y/N doing in the hospital. Which bed is she in? Make sure you take fucking care of her, ok? Don’t repeat that last part.”
You burst out laughing.
“You can tell him I’m in bay…”
“3.” The nurse said.
“Ok bay 3, and that I have a leg injury, he can come and visit me if he’s allowed, stress the ALLOWED part.” You said with a laugh.
