it was strange that todoroki found himself nearing the same cafe he promised himself he wasn't going to visit anymore.
he heard rumors that there was a new worker, and that she was a cute, innocent, little thing. and him hearing that piqued his interest.
todoroki knew that the girls who worked at that cafe were far from innocent, he had experienced it himself.
but nonetheless, his curiosity got the better of him, and he found himself walking to the cafe on that sunny saturday afternoon.
hearing the bells chime as he entered, the smell of freshly baked goods and other foods flooded his nose, and he sighed as he recalled the memories he had in the cafe.
"welcome master- oh, todoroki? long time no see," one of the maids, whom he didn't remember the name of, greeted him. "what brings you back here?" the boy just shrugged, not wanting to tell them he was curious as to who their new maid was.
he knew she had already been working at the cafe for at least a month now, but it was today he decided to finally see who she was.
"alright, follow me." the maid led him to be seated at a table, and he muttered a quiet 'thank you' to her as she walked away.
scanning the cafe, he noticed all the maids. some faces he didn't recognize, some, he did, but thankfully he didn't see her.
the last thing he needed was more problems, and he already had enough on his plate.
todoroki sighed in relief as the same maid from earlier came out the back with a notepad in hand. "i'm guessing you'd like your usual, master?"
she nodded, writing it down on her notepad. before walking away, though, she turned to look at him. "by the way, she still works here." the girl warned him.
todoroki raised an eyebrow, running his hands through his hair. "and you're telling me this, why?"
"because i don't want to almost lose my job because of you two again." and with that, the girl left.
he scoffed. it wasn't his fault, nothing that happened that day was his fault.
as he was deep in thought, he failed to hear the foot steps that marched towards him.
"here's your food, master." he looked up, seeing the girl in front of him bowed down.
her voice was recognizable, but he couldn't pin point where he'd heard it before.
but as the maid stood up, her face looking down at him, that's when he knew why she was so familiar.
