You made your way back home and spent the night sorting applications with your mum but your heart just wasn’t there.
“What is up with Shouto and Dabi at the moment they’re both acting very odd these days?” You thought as you reefed through the paperwork in front of you.
Next day in class you were surprised to find Dabi wasn’t there. Shouto seemed happy about his absence but you were worried that maybe it had been something you had said to him during your last interaction, it hadn’t been the best after all.
“Y/N,” the teacher called at the end of the final class. “May I see you a moment?”
“Yes sir?” You said as you approached him.
“Dabi wasn’t here today and he has missed receiving his homework, could you please take it to him? I assume you and he are well acquainted.” The teacher said.
You were about to correct him but decided against it.
“Yes sir.” You replied instead, taking the homework package in hand.
You pulled your phone out and found Dabi’s details. He had even included his address.
“He’s either really stupid to give out his home address or he gives zero fucks.” You thought as you headed out of the school gates and started towards his house.
The closer you got the more nervous you got and your stomach twisted as you stopped in front of the gate.
You pushed it open and walked up to the front door.
“Why am I so fucking nervous?! This is stupid, why am I being such a pussy.”
You rang the doorbell hard and stepped back, crossing your arms across your chest while holding the package.
Footsteps could be heard approaching from the inside and your heart started beating wildly.
“CALM THE FUCK DOWN!” You screamed at yourself.
You heard the door unlock and suddenly Dabi was standing before you.
“Ohh? Hello pet.” He said in a low tone as he leaned against the doorframe.
“H-hey, Uh, your homework…” you said as you looked away and held the package out with one hand.
“Come in.” He said, not taking the package.
You were about to object but he turned and walked back inside the house, still without taking his homework from you so you had no choice but to follow.
You walked in and closed the door behind you.
“No one is home.” Dabi called over his shoulder and you froze.
“Wait what? So I’m alone with this guy???”
Dabi looked back and smirked. “No need to cower in the corner pet, come here.” He said, patting his leg as if calling a dog.
“EXCUSE ME?!” You spat in shocked surprise, “I’ll go where I want!” You replied, pointing your chin in the air and marching towards Dabi then past him and placing his homework down on the table.
You spun around to say something else to him and found that he was right behind you.
“Woah!” You gasped and jumped back.
“Hey, hey now, why so jumpy?” He asked with a low chuckle.
“N-no reason.” You snapped, looking away with a heavy blush on your cheeks, arms crossed across your chest.
Dabi’s turquoise eyes travelled over you, reading your body language. He could tell you were a little flustered to be alone in the house with him.
He smirked deviously.
“Well if you’re fine then bring my homework up to my room. I’ll make a start on it.” Dabi said as he turned and headed down the hall towards his room.
You reached back and grabbed the homework package off the table then bought it around in front of you and held the package against your chest, swallowing thickly as you followed after Dabi, making your way towards his room.
Your heart was pounding as you entered and you glanced around before your eyes settled on Dabi in front of you, who by now, was lounging back on his bed with his arms up above his head as he rested back on his pillow.
“Come here, pet.”
His tone of voice was different to anything you had ever heard before and it ignited a feeling inside you that you had desperately been trying to ignore.
As if pulled by an invisible cord you walked slowly towards him and sat down on the end of the bed.
Dabi sat up, his eyes locked on you as he lowered his head slightly.
You felt exposed as his gaze travelled down your body then back up to your face, which was bright red by now.
“D-dont look at me like that, i-idiot!” You stammered, pivoting on your backside and raising a foot to kick at his chest but he caught you around the ankle and you winced.
“Ohh…” he coo’d lowly, “still injured, pet?”
“I’m fine.” You pouted, “and why weren’t you at school today?”
“Sick.” He replied bluntly.
“You’re damn right you’re sick!” You agreed emphatically.
He snaked his hand further up your leg and wrapped his fingers around your calf muscle, yanking you down the bed towards him, as he moved so that you were semi under his body.
“And are you going to tend to your master then?” He asked with a devious smirk as his body hovered over yours.
You smacked your palm onto his forehead, feeling for a temperature.
“Yeah you’re a little hot.” You said frankly.
“Hmmm? Oh so you are attracted to me then.” He replied.
“W-w-wha?! N-no I-.”
“There’s no need to hide it.” He said in his rich voice as he leaned closer to you.
You quickly scrambled out from underneath him.
“I-I’m gonna grab some medicine from the cupboard for your slight fever, I’ll be back.” You said quickly as you ran out the door.
Dabi chuckled at your nervously embarrassed state as he flopped back onto the bed again.
“She’s cute as fuck when she’s flustered.”
A few moments later you came back, after you had composed yourself that is.
You popped two pills into the palm of your hand and held it out for Dabi to take as you held a glass of water for him in your other hand.
“Here take these.” You directly sternly.
Dabi quickly grabbed your wrist and held it steady as he leaned forward and took the two pills from the palm of your hand with his mouth and you screamed in surprise, dumping the cup of water onto his head.
He burst out laughing as you yelled all kind fo things at him, extremely embarrassed that he had done such a thing.
“Looks like the tables have turned, I’m the one eating out of your hand now.” He said deviously.
You tried to ignore his statement but hearing him say something like that got you thinking that maybe he did like you…. romantically.
