Hey chicken sorry about that.” Hawks said calmly as he sat back down at the table. “Just getting myself into a messy situation.” He said with a laugh.
“Ok?” You replied with a curious head tilt.
“What you getting?” He asked as he looked down at the menu.
“Oh uh…. [something you feel like eating right now.]” you replied.
Lunch went well and all too soon it was time to head back to work.
As you and Hawks entered the building you saw two staff members chatting together. Yesterday in the staff room you had heard the girl talking about how she found her male co-worker cute and you smiled as you saw them talking.
“I hope they get together…” you thought as you passed them. “Actually… I wonder if I should use my quirk on the guy…. to make him fall for her… is that meddling too much?”
You glanced back at them and smiled to yourself.
“I’ll touch him with my quirk the next time I see them.”
You looked back to where you were going and smiled.
“You’re cute you know that?” Hawks said softly from beside you.
He had seen you smiling about something and it warmed his heart that you were starting to come alive a little more these days.
“O-oh…” you blushed, “I…”
“You’re smiling more and I like it.” He said as he smiled at you.
You smiled back and looked down, not being able to bring yourself to looking at his gorgeous face for too long.
That afternoon Hawks met you for your walk to the bosses office.
“Ok, let’s go!” He said triumphantly.
“Yessir.” You replied with a grin and his face lit up.
“I like your enthusiasm.” He said with a chuckle.
As the two of you hopped off the elevator on the next level up you saw the couple from earlier walking down the hall towards you and Hawks.
You glanced around. Apart from you and Hawks, no one else was in the hallway.
“Nows my chance!”
Thankfully, the guy was closest to you and you mulled over what word to use on him…
“Maybe I’ll use…. lust.” You thought deviously.
You activated your quirk and readied your hand to touch him. As you got closer Hawks reached out and grabbed your arm, pulling you more towards him because he thought you were going to walk into the guy’s path.
You stumbled as you tripped on one leg and grabbed onto Hawks, quirk accidentally still activated.
And then you realized what word you had thought of as you touched Hawks.
“Oh shit NOOOOOO NO NO NO ARGGHHH! No wait it might be ok… he was probably thinking about chicken… or something, ok god that’s worse.”
“S-Sorry Hawks.” You stammered as you quickly pushed off him and kept walking. He continued to walk beside you with his head lowered, very very uncharacteristicallyquiet.
You glanced at him.
“Y-you ok?” You whispered apprehensively.
He looked up at you, lust clouding his eyes.
He glanced around. The hallway was empty.
“Oh no I have a bad feeling about this!!”
Suddenly he grabbed your arms and before you knew it you were pinned up against the wall, his body pressed against yours and his head pressed into the side of your neck with his wings outstretched.
“Y/N.” He breathed, his hot breaths coming in short sharp pants, rushing against your collarbone.
“OH NO! OH NO I CAN’T CHANGE THE WORD AND RE-ACTIVATE BECAUSE HE HAS MY ARMS PINNED!!” You panicked internally.
“A-are you ok, Hawks?” You asked in a small voice, a lump forming in your throat as his lips ghosted your neck.
“I… want you… so bad.” He said in a low carnal tone. “I am filled with lust for you.”
“OH SHIT HE WAS THINKING ABOUT ME WHEN I TOUCHED HIM.”
“Hawks… Hawks n-not now… please… we’re at work.” You begged quietly as he slipped a leg between yours and pushed into you.
“Ohh oh god.” You gasped.
He kissed you just below your ear and parted his lips, leaving deeper kisses as he trailed down your neck to your collarbone, releasing one of your arms so he could use his hand to caress your side and slide it up your body, making his way up to your face and caressing your cheek.
“I want to make you mine.” He said lowly as he locked eyes with you and leaned in to kiss you.
You squeaked and raised your hand to touch the back of his as he held your cheek in his palm.
He suddenly pulled back.
“Shit.” He gasped, “oh shit I’m so sorry I don’t know what came over me, I mean… like, I want you, and I think you’re sexy as hell but I dunno, I just got this overwhelming feeling just then…”
He stepped a few paces back form you.
“Forgive me Y/N, I regret doing that to you.”
You stepped forward and touched his hand again.
“But hey.” He said in an upbeat voice, “if you wanna do… that… with me… I’d totally be down for it, I’m happy to take our relationship to the next level.” He said with a smile.
“Oh my god what the fuck is going on.” You laughed internally, “I don’t know which ‘feeling’ is worse… he’s still thinking about us doing ‘stuff’ together when he’s under the influence of lust, regret AND happy.”
“Uh… Hawks I d-dont know how to respond to those comments so i-I’m just going to leave them for now.” You said with a polite ‘kill me now’ smile.
“Oh sure! No problem!” He said with a happy little chuckle.
“Oh god, help me please he’s going to be the death of me!”
After Hawks had dropped you off at your bosses door and practically skipped away; you left for home.
“I wonder if mum is up? She’s been doing so well these past few days.”
You smiled to yourself as you walked.
As you got closer to home you saw the lights on and got a bit excited.
“If she’s put the lights on then she must be up!”
You unlocked the front door, a gentle aroma greeting you as you entered. You followed the smell to the kitchen and peeked around the corner.
Your mum was cooking. She hadn’t cooked since your dad left and you nearly cried with happiness.
“Mum!” You said excitedly as you walked in and put your bag down. “You’re cooking!”
She turned and smiled at you.
“I’m making your favourite.” She said in her happy little voice.
You teared up immediately.
“Mum~.” You wailed happily, “Mum I’m so happy!”
You ran over and embraced her in the biggest hug.
She cuddled you back and kissed the top of your head.
“I’m so so sorry my sweet, I was such a terrible mum for a bit there, I really went down hill fast.”
“No! Please don’t apologize! You were having withdrawals from dad’s quirk, I’m just so happy you’re coming out of it.” You replied, looking up into her eyes.
“I’ll do better, for us Y/N, for us, we’re all we have now.” She said with a shaky smile, “I’ll admit I’m scared but I know if you’re with me we’ll be fine, you’ve developed so much more confidence over the past month or so too… you’ve proven to me that we can survive without your father.”
“Mum you have no idea how happy I am right now.” You cried, tears of joy streaming down your cheek. “You’re right! We’re a power team.”
She kissed your forehead and hugged you once more.
“Get changed Y/N, dinner will be ready soon, then we can watch a movie together, what do you say?”
“I SAY YES!” You cried happily.
