I sat down at the extremely low table with a bowl of white steamed rice and pulled apart my chopsticks. When I was almost finished with my bowl, my dad sat down across from me with a bowl of fried rice.
“I got scheduled to go work in Tokyo for a couple of months. It’s not a long job and we’d be back fairly soon so we’d just stay in a hotel, but we have to leave later tonight. I told them I won’t do anything that involves us moving again though, so don’t worry. This time really will be different.”
Again? But we just moved here. I frowned. “Y/n, is something wrong? I know we just moved here but we’ll come back and it’s not for very long,” My dad said.
“Well... I was going to ask.. um if I could go to UA? I heard that I might be able to get in through recommendation since Mom was a pro hero..” I looked up a little to see my dad almost choke on his drink when I mentioned UA.
“You want to go to UA?! I thought you said you didn’t want to?” I fidgeted with my fingers a little and responded, “I dunno I guess I changed my mind? I helped save a little girl yesterday and it made me feel really good and I want to help other people. If that makes sense..” I rambled on a little. “I don’t know, nevermind it’s not that big of a deal. I’ll go start packing.” I stood up and headed to my room.
I sighed as I started grabbing pairs of clothes to put in the travel bag. I should’ve expected this. What was I thinking? I was so lost in thought that I hadn’t realized I wasn’t even folding the clothes anymore and was practically chucking them in. I snapped out of my daze and realized how messy it looked. I groaned and started to take them out again.
An hour or so later and I was ready to leave. “I’m going out,” I called, grabbing my jacket and slipping my headphones around my neck. My dad nodded in response. “Did you finish packing?”
“Be back by dinner!” The door shut behind me and I started walking. I sighed aloud. Our conversations always go like this. Short, simple, straight to the point. My dad and I aren’t exactly that close.
I don’t know where I’m going, I just like to be out. I inhaled the fresh Japan air and pressed play on my music after slipping my headphones onto my ears. I wasn’t really paying attention to where I was going, I just let my feet wander. Before I knew it, I was at the park we always used to go to. I hummed softly and made my way back to the tree I always sat in. Placing my foot on the bench and pushing myself up, I grabbed the tree branch and pulled myself up. Swinging my legs, I relived memories with Shoto in my head.
Beep beep beep
I looked down at my phone and saw my alarm going off. “Oh, I better get home before it gets too late.” I jumped down and put my headphones back around my neck and began to run home. I looked down at my phone to check the time again about halfway home when I felt myself collide with something. Or someone. My eyes widened as my body began to fall backward. I closed my eyes tightly and prepared for the impact of the hard concrete sidewalk that never came.
“Huh?” I opened my eyes slowly and saw a pair of beautiful eyes- one blue and one gray. They felt oddly familiar. He was holding my wrists in his right hand, me being midway fall and at about a 70° angle. My h/l h/c hair was hanging down behind me, my e/c eyes gazing into his heterochromatic eyes. He had a familiar red scar covering his left blue eye and his half red and half white hair glistened in the sunset's light. He was mesmerizing.
"O- oh um thanks," I said, quickly standing up. He just hummed in response and began to walk off. I couldn't help but watch him leave, like my eyes were glued to him. He turned the corner of the street, hands in his hoodie pocket. After seeing him leave, I snapped out of my daze and shook my head, hoping to shake the blush off my face too. Why did he seem so... familiar?
"I'm home!" I shouted, slipping my shoes off by the door. My dad turned the corner holding a few suitcases.
"Oh good, Y/n! Dinner's ready! Try and eat fast, we need to head to the airport soon. I sighed and walked over to where the table was, sitting down.
"Yeah yeah, I know," I mumbled, breaking apart my chopsticks. "Thanks for the food," I grumbled.
We sat in the waiting room in a cold, uncomfortable chair. My dad was sitting on the edge of his chair, leg bouncing rapidly, whereas I had music blasting in my headphones and was slouching back in the chair.
"Attention, all passengers boarding the plane to Tokyo, Japan, will be leaving shortly."
My dad quickly stood up and I followed him to the area we were supposed to be headed.
A few months later
It was currently the last day of being in Tokyo before we go back "home," I guess you could call it. It didn't really feel like home and we weren't even there for long before he had another one of his work calls, but apparently this time would be different. Again.
Tokyo was beautiful, but it was a big city. We were on a higher floor of the hotel, so at night I liked to look out the window at the city lights. It's okay here, but I'm glad to be leaving too.
"Are you ready to go back home?" My dad asked, both of us currently eating lunch at a nearby cafe.
I shrugged. "Better than here, but that place doesn't really feel like home yet." He nodded in understanding. And that was it. We ate in silence for the rest of the time, which I was used to.
"Oh and Y/n, I forgot to mention!" I looked up at him in confusion and looked at him from the corner of my eye while drinking my cup of water. "Since when we get back won't be too far into the year and you can get in recommended, you can still go to UA when we get back!" And, of course, I spit my water everywhere. A few people near us looked at me weirdly, but I didn't care.
"What?!" I exclaimed, looking up at him in surprise. "Yeah, your first day is this Monday, so the day after tomorrow!"
A/n: Hi everyone! I'm sorry for so many time skips I just thought it would be boring if I explained everything. And the timelines might not match up, I'm sorry about that too. I don't know which month is which part in the anime so it might be off but I hope you all enjoy reading! Have a great day! :)
