You could see this was all in fun and you secretly liked watching Hawks rile the patchwork villain up.
Just then you heard Hiyoko call out from his cot.
“Oop! Birthday boy is up!” You said happily as you turned and walked to your little boy’s room.
You picked him out of his cot and carried him out to where Hawks and Dabi were sitting on the lounge.
Hiyoko locked eyes with Dabi and just stared at him.
Slowly you put him down and he hesitated before crawling over to the scarred villain.
“Don’t come over here, squirt.” Dabi said to him blankly.
“Awww, Dabi is scared of a baby.” Hawks teased.
“I don’t do kids.” Dabi replied gruffly.
Hiyoko seemed unfazed though and crawled right over to him, using Dabi’s legs to give himself some leverage to stand up.
“DADA!” Hiyoko said brightly as he stood up and pointed at Dabi from his position at Dabi’s kneecaps.
“I’m not your fucking father, what the fuck.” Dabi said lowly.
“He says ‘dada’ to everything, it’s not just you.” Hawks said with a laugh.
“Is he walking yet?” Dabi asked.
“Trying to.” Hawks replied as he took a sip of his drink, “he’ll walk if you hold his hands.”
Dabi stood up and reached down, holding onto Hiyoko’s hands gently.
“Alright ya little shit, walk.” He commanded, turning and backing back as he kept himself hunched over to hold the little ones hands.
Hiyoko stepped one chubby foot in front of the other as he walked slowly after Dabi.
“Yeahhh there ya go, smarter than your dad that’s for sure.” Dabi said with a smirk at Hawks.
“Low blow, dude, low blow.” Hawks replied playfully as he took another sip of his drink.
“DADA!” Hiyoko babbled with a little baby giggle as he continued to take exaggerated, marching type steps after Dabi.
“You’re good with him.” Hawks commented, “give up villainy and become a nanny.”
“Fuck off.” Dabi grunted.
“The villain nanny.” Hawks continued, holding his hand up and moving it slowly from right to left as if he were painting out a Hollywood sign. “Scaring your kids into compliance.”
“Or; Villain nanny, you might just come home to a pile of ashes,” Dabi sneered evilly.
“That went dark real quick.” Hawks said with a shudder.
“It’s true though.” Dabi grunted with a smirk.
“Your family minus dad was here earlier.” Hawks commented to Dabi who had now walked the length of the lounge room and had turned around to bring Hiyoko back.
“I saw them.” Dabi said in a quiet voice. “It’s Shoto’s birthday today.”
“I know.” Hawks said tenderly, “do you think you’ll ever tell them who you are?”
“Dunno.” Dabi replied gruffly, clenching and unclenching his jaw as he fought back the emotion.
Hawks noticed and dropped the subject.
All was quiet and you quickly said something to break the tension.
“Uh, well, did you want to stay for dinner Dabi?” You asked randomly.
“Nah, I’ll go soon.” Dabi replied. “Thanks though.”
“Woahhh now, how come she gets a thank you?!” Hawks said with surprise.
“Everyone that’s not you, gets a thank you.” Dabi replied with a smirk at Hawks.
After chatting a little longer Dabi said his goodbyes and left.
“He’s still that good old Touya I grew up with.” Hawks commented with a chuckle as he walked back over to you and Hiyoko, “he might just end up dropping the whole villain thing.”
“Doubt it, but it’s always good to be positive.” You said with a chuckle.
Over the next few days you and Hawks started planning your wedding together. You wanted a [month of choice] wedding and he was just happy with anything.
“You pick the month and I’ll pick your lingerie outfit for the wedding night.” He has whispered in your ear one night as you two were cuddling before sleep.
“You actually want me in something?” You asked cheekily, “I thought you would have wanted me in nothing.”
“Good point.” He replied, “I’ve changed my mind already.”
You squealed and giggled as he rolled you on your back so he could attack you with kisses.
“Who are you having in your wedding party?” You asked him quickly, changing subjects at the speed of light.
“I haven’t even thought that far.” He admitted, “what about you?”
“Well I feel like Brian should be my maid of honour…” you said.
“He will be SO happy with that title.” Hawks said with a chuckle, “just make sure he doesn’t try and steal the spot light.”
“True.” You said with a laugh, “I’ll ask him tomorrow.”
“In that case I’ll ask uncle Anthony to be my best man.” Hawks said.
“Oh! they’d love that.” You said with a smile in the darkness.
The next day you both went to visit your uncles.
You had a feeling Brian already knew why you two were there and he seemed extra happy to have you both visit.
“Come in baby-cakes and Mr Handsome.” He greeted brightly. “I’m just giving Norm-bubba some food.”
You and Hawks followed him into the kitchen and saw Norman in a doggie highchair with a bib on, eating some organic something-or-other that Brian had found.
You stifled a chuckle.
“This is the most spoilt pupper ever!” You thought with a giggle.
“So smoochies what brings you both here?” Brian asked as he sashayed around.
“Well…” you said with a big grin, “We came to ask you and uncle Anthony a question.”
Brian gasp-screamed and flicked his fingers around in gay panic.
“Ok, ok, hold up, let me grab my mans.” He squealed as he ran to the hallway and called for Anthony. “Boo-boo you need to come here RIGHT NOW! ITS LIFE OR DEATH!”
Anthony came rushing in, looking around wildly.
“What is it Bri??” He asked in an urgent voice. “Is it the ladle again?”
Upon seeing you, he calmed down.
“Wow, that certainly gets you here quick.” You said with a chuckle.
“Well last time the ‘life or death’ was a spider on his pink and orange ‘stir in the love’ ladle and let me tell you, you do not touch that ladle!” Anthony said solemnly.
“He’s 100 percent correct.” Brian said with a knowing head nod.
“Ok well, now that you’re both here.” You said with an excited smile, “Brian,” you said addressing the bubbly blond.
Brian reached across and grasped Anthony’s hand like they were about to hear the announcement of the winner of a competition.
“Will you be my maid of honour?” You asked him.
He burst into tears and turned to sob on Anthony’s shoulder.
“Oh… Bri… are you ok?” You asked sympathetically, as you stepped forward to hug him.
“Y/N, he’s been practicing his reaction to this question ever since Hawks proposed to you.” Anthony deadpanned.
“Boo-boo don’t call me out like that!” Brian wailed.
You burst out laughing.
“Bri, you’re gorgeous.” You said with a chuckle as you hugged him.
“Yes of course I’ll be your gay-d of honour!” He replied.
“He has been practicing that name as well.” Anthony added.
Brian looked over and gave him a dirty look.
“Hawks, honey, you can revoke the question you were going to ask him.” Brian said to Hawks as he buried his head into your shoulder with embarrassment.
The poor taller male looked so deflated.
“But I want to be best man so I can see you in a pretty outfit.” Anthony said softly with a blush across his cheeks as he bowed his head slightly.
You melted and Hawks chuckled.
“How can I deny this man of seeing such a beautiful sight?” Hawks said with a smile, “Anthony I’d love to have you as my best man, if you’ll accept?”
“Of course!” Uncle Anthony said brightly. “It would be my pleasure!”
“It’s settled then!” You said with a happy smile.
“Does that mean I can use my quirk?!” Brian gasped excitedly.
