The next morning you and Shouto walked to school as usual but the conversation was a little different.
“It’s got to be somebody in our year.” Shouto said with a strong look of concentration on his face. “Why else would someone ruin my work?”
You sweat dropped. “Uh…good point.” You said.
“Everyone is a suspect until I can prove it wasn’t them.” Shouto added darkly.
You forced a fake light laugh, “Even me? Am I a suspect?”
“Of course not Y/N, you’re my friend. You would never do something like that, even if I did say your project wasn’t good you wouldn’t go so far as to destroy mine out of vengeance.” He stated calmly but also watched you intently from the corner of his eye.
“Ahhh uh, yeah.” You said with another hollow laugh as you scratched the back of your head nervously.
You both neared the school gates and you looked ahead to see the most terrible sight ever.
Posted up by the gates.
His turquoise eyes watching your every move as you and Shouto walked towards him.
“Ahh fuck, this dickwad again.” You groaned internally with annoyance.
You averted your eyes from his with a scowl and ignored his presence, until he stepped out right in your path.
“You’re in my way.” You growled at him as he stood side on to you.
“Come.” He said lowly and walked off to your right.
“No.” You whispered, quietly fuming at his arrogance.
He turned his head and looked at you from the corner of his eye.
“Hey Todoroki.” He suddenly said loudly to your duel haired friend, “beautiful morning isn’t it?”
You frowned. “What’s he doing?”
You looked at Shouto who looked just as confused as you.
“Would ruin your whole day if you were to get some bad news, wouldn’t it?” Dabi added, in a slightly lower tone. His top lip curling slightly into a haughty smile.
Your eyes widened and you quickly stepped towards Dabi.
“Ok I’m coming.” You conceded quickly and urgently.
You turned back to Shouto who still wore a very perplexed look on his face.
“Umm, I’ll see you in there ok?” You said to him quickly with a reassuring smile. “It’s ok, I just gotta talk to him for a bit.” You said, pointing at Dabi.
Shouto’s eyes shifted from you to Dabi then back to you and he nodded slowly. “Ok.” He said, not quite sure what to make of it all.
You turned and followed Dabi as he walked off away from the bustle of the entering students.
“What do you want?” You snapped once you were away from everyone.
“Is that how you greet your master?” He asked, keeping his eyes up from yours and looking over your shoulder.
“You’re a dick you know that?” You growled, “you were going to tell Shouto weren’t you?”
“You couldn’t do it yesterday could you?” Dabi asked, his turquoise eyes suddenly meeting yours, his stare freezing you in place.
“Uh…n-no ….I couldn’t..” you said as your gaze dropped to the ground in shame. “Wait how did you know I couldn’t??” You asked, your eyes shooting your and meeting his. “What, are you stalking me now?”
“Such an annoying mouth.” Dabi said gruffly, reaching out and grabbing your chin while placing the thumb of the hand that grabbed you, on your lips to silence you. “Give me your phone.”
You tried to say no but Dabi’s thumb on your lips stopped you from speaking so you just scowled and silently pulled out your phone and handed it to him.
“Unlock it.” He said before taking it from you.
Keeping his thumb still on your mouth he casually input his number in your phone and handed it back before pulling his own phone out and taking his thumb off your lips but still holding onto you under your jaw.
“Number.” He said causally as he looked at his phone.
“What?” You asked.
“Your phone number.” He said again, his eyes piercing you as he locked eyes with you again.
You tired to break eye contact by averting your eyes but he gripped your jaw a little firmer and gave a sharp ‘Uh!’ Sound.
You looked back at him and he smirked. “Eyes on me, pet, what’s your number.”
You growled lowly and he raised an eyebrow.
“Do I need to discipline you?” He asked.
“Zero, Four…” you forced out through gritted teeth.
“Good girl.” He coo’d, relaxing his hold on your jaw slightly as he punched your number in.
You managed to growl your number out and he let go of your jaw. Using the same hand that he used to hold your jaw he then let you go and used it to pat you on the head.
“See now, that wasn’t so hard.” He said with a haughty smile as you stared him down.
“What do you need my number for?” You asked bitterly.
“You belong to me, I need to know your details.” He replied casually as if it were a completely normal response to such a question.
Just the way he said it made your heart pound again and you quickly turned away to hide the blush creeping up on your face.
You shook your head to try and snap yourself out of it and took a step to walk away from Dabi and back to the school.
“Hold it.” He said quickly, stepping forward and wrapping an arm around your waist from behind before lowering his lips to your ear. His other hand still casually tucked into his pocket. “What’s your name?” He rasped in a low voice.
“Y/N.” You replied numbly, your heart now racing from the position he had you in.
“Ohhh?” He hummed lowly, “that’s a pretty name, pet.”
You wrestled your way out of his arms and spun around.
“D-don’t s-say stuff like that!” You said in a flustered tone, your cheeks red and hot.
“Oh? Did I say something that got you flustered?” He asked with a smirk. “Pets aren’t allowed to fall for their owners remember.”
“DON’T YOU WORRY THERE IS NO WAY I COULD EVER FALL FOR YOU!” You snapped before spinning and marching off.
“Arrrrgh what is with this guy?!” You screamed internally. “That was borderline sexual harassment. No wait… it WAS sexual harassment. I should report him! …. but why did I kinda like that?” You shook your head in annoyance. “Nah, I didn’t like that, he’s annoying, I can’t stand him.”
The feeling of his strong arm wrapped around you waist, making you feel small and protected lingering in your mind as you stormed off into the school grounds.
