Hawks deployed 6 feathers and each one picked up a plate or other dish and promptly flew them over to the sink for your mum.
“There you go, all done.” He said with a smile.
“Why what a fabulous quirk!” Your mum said excitedly, “so handy!”
“I’d make an amazing housewife.” Hawks said with a chuckle.
“You sure would.” Your mum agreed with a laugh as she looked at Hawks with a dreamy look in her eye.
“Oooooookkaaayyyyy,” you punctuated as you stood up, “let’s watch a bit of TV.” You wanted to find a reason, ANY reason to get him away from your mum.
This whole ‘Hawks and mum’ friendliness thing was just super weirding you out.
“Hey uh, actually…” Hawks said as he turned back to your mum, “Mrs L/N, would you mind if I took Y/N out for a bit? I’ll bring her back within the hour, promise. I’m a good boy.”
“Oh Hawks.” Your mum chuckled as she put the fingertips of one hand to her lips in a bashful manner and flicked her other hand at him like if she were saying ‘stop it’, “I trust you. Stay out as long as you like, it’s fine with me.”
“Wow?! Ok so mum’s just our here flirting with my potential man? And that 8pm curfew must have been dad’s idea because all of a sudden- what is a curfew?- Not that dad ever let me go out anyway.”
“Awesome.” He said with a smile as he took your hand. “I just want to show her something.”
“Oh no… where is he going to take me??”
Hawks thanked your mum again for the lovely meal which caused her to gush and go all gooey all over again and you rolled your eyes as he led you out of the kitchen and to the front door.
“You uh… don’t mind if I hold your hand do you?” He asked, scratching the back of his head sheepishly as he averted his eyes as you came up beside him. His warm masculine hand still holding yours.
You looked at him curiously.
“This is the first time I’ve seen you umm… shy?” You said with a sympathetic smile.
“Yeah well… I may be cocky at times but I like holding your hand and I just want to make sure it’s ok?” He said, still looking away as he opened the front door and walked out.
“Of course it’s ok.” You said with a blush as your heart rate increased.
He smiled and glanced at you before looking away again.
The two of you strolled off down the street hand in hand with your heart fluttered wildly.
He was unusually quiet and you didn’t know if you should try and start a conversation or something.
“What do I say?! What do I say???”
“Uh, I want to show you something I’ve always liked…” he said suddenly, “but we need to fly again.”
“Really???” You wailed softly, “you fly so fast, it’s scary.”
“I can slow down if you like?” He asked as he smiled at you and all of a sudden you were re-aware of the fact that this hot hero was holding your hand.
“I-I-I think that would be worse?!” You stammered, trying not to concentrate too hard on his warm hand holding yours.
“Come on…” he begged, “please? Just close your eyes when we lift off and trust me.”
“O-ok.” You resigned and he beamed.
He led you a little further down the road then stopped and pulled you towards himself and wrapped you in a hug.
“I like flying with you because it gives me an excuse to hug you.” He stated plainly and then launched into the air.
“HAAAAWWWWKKKSSS!!” You screeched as he shot straight up in the air.
He let out a carefree laugh and although you hated his ass right now that laugh was gorgeous.
He shot across the city and landed on top of a building that was right beside a lake, the moonlight was shimmering across the surface and the twinkling lights from buildings nearby reflected in the water.
He set your feet down and hugged you a little longer until he felt your shaking body relaxing a bit.
“You ok now?” He asked as he pulled back from you.
“Mmhmm.” You hummed as you nodded. “W-where are we?”
“Somewhere I like to go.” He said as he took your hand and led you to the edge of the building to sit down with your feet dangling over the edge.
“Oh no no no no no.” You chanted as he got closer to the edge. “No I can’t sit on the edge.” You said, shaking your head violently.
“Just don’t look directly down, yeah?” He said as he ran a hand through his hair and looked back at you over his shoulder with a half smirk. “But you know that if you fall ill definitely catch you.” He added.
You blushed and nodded, stepping up beside him and setting your eyes a little further out over the water.
He sat down and you sat beside him, your hands still clasped together.
“Well best I learn how to fight one handed.” He commented casually with a sigh.
You looked at him.
“Because you’re cutting off the circulation.” He added squeezing your hand gently as he chuckled softly.
“Oh gosh!” You gasped, “Sorry! I..I’m just scared.” You said quickly letting go of his hand.
“I think you’re doing well.” He commented, looking at you with half lidded eyes as he leaned forward and rested his cheek in his hand with his elbow on leg.
“H-Hawks you’re going to fall off the roof!” You gasped, “be careful!”
“I got wings baby, I’m all set.” He said as he continued to gaze at you with a half smirk pulling at his lips.
You blinked and looked away as he continued to look at you and you felt super self conscious as he just observed your side profile silently.
“A-aren’t you gonna look at the view?” You said with a blush as you looked at him again.
“Already lookin at it.” He said lowly as he golden eyes caught the light of the moon and smoldered into you.
Your heart nearly stopped and you looked away to try and compose yourself.
“Hey.” He said softly and you looked back at him.
“I really like you Y/N.” He said, still watching you with that unwavering gaze as he continued to rest his cheek in hand. “Do you like me?”
Your face flushed instantly and you froze.
“So blunt and to the point?! Come on girl! Say it back! You know you like him! Tell him!”
“Fuck. Well…it was something I guess?”
“That’s all I get? A head nod?” He chuckled.
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” You wailed softly as you looked down and stared into your lap, “I…I really do like you, I..I’ve liked you for a while now I’m sorry! I’m trying to be more confident! Argh!”
He chuckled again and you looked at him.
“You’re really cute you know that.” He said as he reached out and stroked your cheek, running his hand down to your chin.
Your heart instantly when wild again.
He removed his hand from your chin and sat up, shifting closer to you as his eyes continued to lock you in place.
You stayed looking up at him as he gazed down at you then he gently caressed your chin again, tilting your head up slightly.
“Is he going to kiss me?! OH MY GOD HE’S GOING TO KISS ME!”
Your mouth ran dry as he started to lean down slowly, his lips parting as he bent down to you.
Your eyelids fluttered shut and you reached your face up a little to his, his soft lips connecting with yours.
“WE’RE KISSING, WE’RE KISSING, We ArE KiSsInG RiGhT nOw Oh My GoD!!!”
Your brain flipped the fuck out as he pulled back and then came back to kiss you again.
You kissed a few times, Hawks seemed unwilling to let it end as his soft lips met yours again and again.
“Man I just can’t seem to stop.” He said lowly with a chuckle, “your lips are addictive.”
