Just then Hiyoko crawled over and pulled himself up on the lounge beside Shoto, sitting on his left side.
The winged one year old smiled up at Shoto and scooted close to him, snuggling into his side.
Shoto stiffened slightly at being cuddled but then a very small smile graced his lips as he looked down at Yoko fondly.
“He probably likes this side of me because it’s warmer.” Shoto commented to you.
“Is it part of your quirk?” You asked Shoto.
“This is my fire side.” He said as he held a hand out in front of Hiyoko and released a small flame in the palm of his hand.
Hiyoko’s eyes widened and he pointed at Shoto’s palm.
“DADA!” He babbled excitedly.
Every time Hiyoko went to touch the flame Shoto would deactivate his quirk and it would disappear and you giggled as you watched the utter amazement and confusion on Hiyoko’s little face as the flame disappeared every time he went to touch it.
After watching for a bit you then excused yourself to go and take the food around to the others.
You glanced back over your shoulder as you left and saw Shoto had started making ice cubes with his right palm and giving them to Hiyoko who was trying to lick them.
“Well they both seem happy.” You thought with a smile.
“Found a babysitter for Hiyoko?” Hawks commented with a chuckle as you approached him.
“They get along well.” You replied as you looked back to Shoto and Yoko again.
The lunch went well and then came time to sing happy birthday to Hiyoko before he went down for his afternoon nap.
You and Fuyumi cleared the table and set things out for the cake as Hawks called for Shoto to bring Hiyoko over.
The duel Haired hero in training picked the little boy up awkwardly and carried him over to you.
“Sho, you carry Hiyoko the way Touya used to carry you.” Natsuo said with a laugh and there was an awkward pause between all the members of the Todoroki household.
“Natsuo.” Fuyumi hissed in a whisper.
“What?” He replied with a laugh.
“Don’t bring him up now.” She said lowly as she glanced around.
Hawks smiled softly.
“I’m sure he’d want us to be talking about him.” He said gently to Fuyumi.
“He’d be expecting me to shit talk him.” Natsuo said again, shoving his hands in his pockets and grinning cheekily.
Rei shot him a look and he pulled an apologetic face.
“Sorry, mum.” He mumbled.
Hawks’s mum arranged the cake with the help of Brian and then lit the candle as Shoto continued to hold Hiyoko.
“DADA!” Yoko screeched excitedly when he saw the flame.
“Uh… Mrs Takami do you want to take…” Shoto asked gently, indicating for you to take Hiyoko from him.
“Oh, no no, I want you both to stand there next to the cake because you share the same birthday.” You said to Shoto with a smile, “this is for both of you.”
“Oh.” Shoto said softly, his dual coloured fringe swaying as he looked from you back to the cake. “Thank you.”
Hawks started the singing of happy birthday and everyone joined in while poor Shoto stood there awkwardly with Hiyoko in arms.
Once everyone had finished singing happy birthday Shoto helped Hiyoko blow the candle out and you asked Brian for a knife.
He was about to hand you one when he looked just past you and gasped, clamping his hands to his mouth.
“Wh-what is it?” You asked him as you turned to see where he was looking.
Hawks was down on one knee with a little sign that said ‘will you marry me?’
You gasped and burst into tears.
“Is that a no?” Natsuo asked loudly.
“No it’s a yes!, Yes!” You babbled in a wobbly voice.
Everyone clapped and cheered as Hawks stood up and closed the gap between you two, grabbing you in a warm hug, engulfing you in his arms.
“I know we’re already married but we need a proper wedding, now that the saga with your dad is all cleared up.” He whispered in your ear.
You cried with happiness, today had been the most perfect day.
It was getting later in the afternoon and slowly the guests started to leave.
Brian, uncle Anthony and Norman left first, followed by Hawks’s mum, then your mum and Rei and then the three Todoroki siblings.
Finally everyone had left and you closed the door as the last lot walked out.
“What a day!” You said as you flopped down onto the lounge.
“It’s been fun.” Hawks commented as he sat down beside you and snaked an arm around your middle to pull you in for a hug.
Just then there was a knock at the door and Hawks smirked.
“I know who this is.” He said lowly as he got up and strolled to the door.
“Hey honey, you’re late.” Hawks said with airy cheekiness as he pulled the door open.
“Piss off, you should be grateful I showed up at all.” Dabi replied dryly from the other side.
“I knew you’d come.” Hawks replied smartly.
“That’s what she said.” Dabi replied quickly.
“Not to you she didn’t.” Hawks clapped back.
“You’re a dick, Keigo.” Dabi said with a snarling chuckle.
“Sorry, you want my dick?” Hawks replied mischievously.
“Small things are a choking hazard.” Dabi replied as he stepped in past Hawks and entered the house.
“Sorry, did I invite you in?” Hawks jeered playfully, very much enjoying the banter Dabi was offering.
“Hey Y/N, great day for a kidnapping.” Dabi said as he strolled over and sat down on the lounge opposite you, slinging one arm across the backboard and spreading his knees apart casually as he smirked at you.
“No thanks.” You deadpanned.
He let out a low chuckle.
“It would be more interesting than living with this overgrown chicken.” He said.
“Oi.” Hawks called from the kitchen where he was getting drinks for him and Dabi. “Stop offering my wife better deals, I just asked her to marry me today, I don’t need her changing her mind.”
“Did you say no?” Dabi asked you.
“I said yes.” You said with a happy smile.
“Well, your loss then babe, you could have run with a villain.” Dabi said with a smirk, his turquoise eyes making you catch your breath slightly.
“Stop making passes at my wife.” Hawks said as he banged his hand on the kitchen bench to attract Dabi’s attention.
Dabi didn’t look at him but raised a hand up and Hawks threw a can of soft drink at it, which Dabi caught without looking and lowered it down to open it.
“You two are pretty in sync?” You commented, having just seen the two communicate with just a bang on the table meaning ‘here comes your drink.’
“When we were in the government program we needed to come up with code words and noises to sneak food and drink to each other when someone stole something extra from the kitchen.” Hawks said as he strolled over and sat down on the lounge beside Dabi. “This fatty here always ended up with the most spoils.”
“That’s because you were a fucking simp and would do anything for me.” Dabi replied as he tipped the can up and drank it. “If I asked for something you’d always get it for me.”
“Not even gonna try and fight that accusation.” Hawks replied with a laugh. “You know I topped you though.”
“He means top bunk.” Dabi said quickly to you. “We roomed together, he was on the top bunk, I was on the bottom.”
“He’s alway been the bottom.” Hawks jeered playfully.
“Keep going and I’ll burn your fucking feathers off.” Dabi said darkly, eyeing Hawks from the corner of his eye.
