Another day, the same thing once again, almost gloomy, mild clouds just waiting to let the sunny hide behind them, this was the view of Izuku.
It had been a few minutes since Bakugou left the injured boy alone in the small ally way, he attempted to get up, but every time his wounds would cause horrendous pain, almost disabling him. ′ I shouldn’t have snapped like that ′
The boy thought to himself, regretting the action he took talking back to his childhood friend and rival.
A familiar voice interrupted the short boy’s thoughts, it was unexpected that he flinched at the person’s tone of voice. “Are you alright?” The dull tone of the stranger or rather familiar voice said, making Izuku look up with a bit of a hostile expression, Shouto Todoroki Son of Endeavor. Almost immediately he became anxious, feeling his skin prickle under his uniform because of the sweat building up, taken aback by the sight in front of him. He freaked out but tried to keep his composure at least a bit.
" Y-yeah! I-I just ... TRIPPED! ON.by.a. ROCK! I tripped on a rock ..! ” His bruised and slightly burned body was hurting but still tried once again to get up, while also trying to cover up what the boy with anger problems had done.
" I don’t think that beating, looked like you tripped by a rock... ” Todoroki lifting an eyebrow, confronting him on his lie.
′ Todoroki~kun saw.. great.. ′ Sarcastically saying it to himself in his thoughts, but then realized how he sounded.
The vibe around them becoming awkward and quiet for a moment, promptly making up an excuse out of the sudden uneasiness that came over him, and not wanting to spill anything to one of his best friends. ” You know kacchan!.. he just gets mad! - ” Todoroki stared at Izuku, on his knees forcing a smile to cover up how hurt he was physically and maybe mentally.
“come on let’s go... ” The taller boy holds out his hand Izuku felt vulnerable at the state he was in, it hurt him deeply almost bad as his injuries but tried to play it off, by taking his hand. Shouto helped him up on his two feet, paying attention to how Izuku moved.
" Do you want me to carry you?” He proposed not thinking any of it, but his friend overthinking like usual, decline feeling a sense of humiliation.
” N-nonono! That’s okay! I can do it!.. ” He chuckled at the thought of how he looked, trying to make a light of his situation. ” say... What are you doing here..? ” truly interested in his friends’ just sudden entrance out of nowhere. ” um... I went to this cat coffee... It’s a bit of a long-distance from here.. ”
" cat coffee..? Wait, you mean the one that has cute decorations inside..? ” Izuku’s eyes sparkle with delight, that is until he felt discomfort on his side and leaned forward, clinching the side of his stomach. Todoroki didn’t know what to do in that situation, what to ask or say, so he said what he thought was right. ” we should go.. ”
When both friends reached Recovery Girl’s Office, she didn’t seem so pleased.
” alright, which bones did you break this time- ”
Recovery girl said bluntly, awaiting Izuku to be injured because of his quirk(s), it was now a somewhat routine that Izuku tried to break but failing.
" I’m sorry to interrupt, but I’m afraid that isn’t the case this time. ” Todoroki stated sounding so polite and formal. Recovery girl turned around and saw both of them, Midoriya almost clinging onto him though Shōto didn’t seem to mind, he wouldn’t let his own emotions show through, a bit of worry starting to jab Todoroki’s abdomen. She got out of her chair, walked towards Izuku then grabbed his hand filled with old and new scars, plus a few scratches; analyzing it.
” hmm.. ”
" I-I just fell -” Interrupted her thinking, expecting Recovery Girl to say something after, but silence followed. Todoroki just walked towards the wall attaching the door on the left side.
” Midoriya you know, you can’t lie to me so easily.”
“I- It’s nothing! Really! I don’t want to be a bother to yo-” Recovery Girl as expected didn’t and wouldn’t let him continue, instead she began to yank the injured boy towards a bed, but almost fell to the ground, only able to lift himself ever so far.
" You can’t even walk properly.” Recovery Girl sighs, interrupting herself not wanting to let out any sign of rudeness more than the tone of voice she has when it came to Izuku, so she looked back at Todoroki.
" You may go to class... and thank you for bringing him. ” Izuku looked back at Todoroki, watching him nod as an ‘okay’, very well leaning on the wall waiting for that dismiss of Recovery Girl, not thinking much at the moment, he left through the door closing it behind himself, the feeling of uneasy not leaving him.
She gives her attention to Midoriya, well more like his injuries. ” What happened? ” Recovery girl again questioned, her eyes and Izuku’s locked, a serious expression was plastered on her face.
” L-like I said..! I just fell..! Nothing else..! ”
He once again tried to convince her but failed.
" tell me the truth; Midoriya. ”
After a bit of arguing, it all caved in and told her the truth. “It.. was kacchan..” His gaze shifted to the side, not wanting to see her reaction. Izuku could almost feel Recovery girl’s eyes examining him. “That boy. Let me see where- ”
“There’s no need for that!... I need to head to class anyway!.. I-I’m fine..! ” she didn’t what to hear it, it was her job to heal injuries, it was worth a shot. The boy’s thoughts drifted; it’s not like he hasn’t experienced anything like this before. Back then he handled it, ‘it isn’t a big deal’
Also, Izuku knew he wouldn’t be able to concentrate feeling so tired in class. “Midoriya, I know what’s best for you. Now let me help. ”
❝ 𝓜𝔂 𝓶𝔂.. 𝓦𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓭𝓲𝓭 𝓘 𝓽𝓮𝓵𝓵 𝔂𝓸𝓾..? ❞
A voice joined not heard by Recovery Girl, Midoriya let out a sigh, disappointed that the voice he grew a custom to, so many various emotions ran through at that very second, the figure placed his hands on his shoulders, gripping them tightly making Izuku uncomfortable.
❝ 𝓘 𝓰𝓾𝓮𝓼𝓼, 𝓘 𝔀𝓪𝓼 𝓻𝓲𝓰𝓱𝓽 𝓱𝓶?.. ❞
As he took off his uniform, piece by piece, silence followed, nothing was said so, Izuku figured she was examining his body; it was full of bruises. Scars.some new.some old. She was more interested in the opened wounds though, first things first Recovery Girl grabbed a few bottles, to clean his wounds.
“- he did this? ” She tried to make conversation, wanting Izuku to spill the truth. Through his hair from the front covering his eyes, he didn’t speak.
Honestly just wanting to get it over with.
Almost half an hour went by, cleaning wounds and bandaging him up, Izuku felt dizzy from all the energy it took since the kiss she gave was using it to heal. Recovery girl let the boy sleep at one of the beds it was a bit uncomfortable but it’d for now.
In his slumber he began to dream about something, Izuku was in what felt like a few minutes inside of that fantasy, though it had been hours.
Waking up without his consent, the feelings he felt in the dream almost made him hate himself more by opening his eyes.
′ Still... Tired .. aughh... What time is it though... ′
He swung his legs to the side, picked himself up in a sitting upright position, trying to find a clock to no avail. The drowsiness from waking up and healing were just more stress added to the pile of anxiety and shit. ′ I’ll just check my phone... ” Once rubbing his eyes with both hands, clenched into fist getting out whatever was preventing him to see properly, Izuku took out his phone.
When turning it on the first thing he saw was a picture of him and all might, they both seemed joyous he’d almost forgot where that was from.
Those thoughts were interrupted by a door sliding, in the doorway there stood Recovery Girl.
” oh... You’re awake. I was about to wake you up.”
" yeah... What time is it?..” As he put back his phone, in the right pocket. Recovery Girl checks the clock on her wrist and answered with no interest.
” 11:34 a.m. ” She sighed then began to speak again. ” I’ll write you a pass. ” Once those words left her mouth Izuku, zoned out not paying any attention to his surroundings, that is.. until it made himself appear in front of him.
′ what do you want... ′ Midoriya’s face just expressed no emotions, nothing at all.
❝ 𝒯𝒽𝒶𝓉’𝓈 𝓃ℴ 𝓌𝒶𝓎 𝓉ℴ 𝓉𝒶𝓁𝓀 𝓉ℴ 𝓈ℴ𝓂ℯℴ𝓃ℯ..~ ℯ𝓈𝓅ℯ𝒸𝒾𝒶𝓁𝓁𝓎 𝓂ℯ. ❞
The attitude it gave him was just enough to say something out loud but didn’t, instead, he said it on his mind.
‘why are you here. I’m about to head to class. ’
❝ ℐ’𝓂 𝒽ℯ𝓇ℯ 𝒿𝓊𝓈𝓉 𝓉ℴ 𝓉𝒶𝓁𝓀.. 𝒲ℯ CAN 𝒹ℴ 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝓇𝒾ℊ𝒽𝓉 𝓂𝓎 𝓁𝒾𝓉𝓉𝓁ℯ 𝓏𝓊𝓀𝓊? ❞
′ Stop calling me that. ”
" alright here, Midoriya. Don’t get into anymore-.. Midoriya..? ” In Recovery girl’s point of view, Izuku’s expression was unsettling she’s seen this bone-breaking boy make different expressions, but from what she saw, she decided to snap him out of it. Recovery Girl grabbed a hold of his arm and was about to shake him until, he swatted her hand out, visibly bewildered.
The slip of paper fell to the ground, for a moment Izuku’s eyes revealed nothing but anger and maybe a bit of stress too. Once he acknowledged what he’d done, immediately shame, fear, and guilt kicked in and began to apologize profusely. Recovery girl saw how promptly he went back to normal, and apologized, which made her worried.
” are you not telling me something..? ” Izuku stopped talking from this sudden question, he didn’t answer instead he apologized again, grabbing the paper from the ground. Leaving in a hurry, Recovery Girl looked at the door then back at her wrist, where the boy slapped her arm away with such force that it left a slight red imprint.
As he opened the door, some of his classmates turn their heads, Izuku stepped through the sliding door. He immediately was greeted by those stares and among those stares, there was none other than Katsuki Bakugou; glaring at him. You could almost feel the resentment from where he was sitting ( across the room ), Intimidated; the green-haired boy quickly looking away and cutting eye contact, then walking towards his assigned seat.
A few hours pass then came Lunch, Izuku’s friends came up to him, but they were not noticed since Izuku was deep in thought. Uraraka looking visibly concerned, spoke her mind and worriedly asked.
” Deku~kun, what happened to you..? ” The bright ora around her almost disappearing, when she came closer to him to see more than just a few scratches. ” don’t worry, Uraraka~san..! I’m okay. ”
" what do you mean ‘don’t worry’?! You look awful! ”
" thank you for your kind words” he joked, chuckling while getting up from his seat, the three of them saw him stumble which was a bit embarrassing, to say the least. ” I-I didn’t mean it like that! ” she said taking what Izuku said, a bit seriously.
“I know. ” Uraraka looked at the patch that was on Izuku’s cheek. ” does... It hurt..? ”
" hm..? Oh... The patch on my cheek?.. it itches but I’m okay! ” Once giving the brown-haired girl one of his best smiles he could force, she beams again the happiness radiating off of her. Suddenly a hug followed out of nowhere, which soon she broke realizing he was still injured, as Izuku flinched.
” s-sorry! ”
" it’s fine ..! ” His freckled cheeks were slightly rosy from the sudden action of his other best friend but brushed it off by pointing out that they had to go to lunch. ” go head to lunch... I- have to..-study..! ” Iida stepped in, and spoke. ” do not overwork yourself, Midoriya. It’s very bad for your health, it would be a distraction when doing your work.- ” The blue-haired boy, that was very well taller than both the girl and boy, somewhat lectured him while doing his weird hand-chopping motion.
He was worried in his way, which Izuku just grinned at, he’s never seen anyone else worry for him except for his mother.
” I-I know Iida~kun, but I have to work hard-! I’ll take breaks, don’t worry ..!” He fixes his glasses then nods, though feeling guilty for lying, he didn’t what to get them involved.
” we’ll be going! Good luck deku~kun! ”
" Okay! See ya! ”
Izuku sees Uraraka and Iida leave, to then hear the door slide open and close. ′ agh... So tired.. ”
Without him knowing he started to mumble under his breath. ” Midoriya..? ” Todoroki’s voice makes him flinch, turning around to see the same blunt expression as always, his cheeks now glowing red; blushing. Shaking off these feelings, he softly smiled though it hurt to do so.
" y- hi- Todoroki~kun...! Is there something you need?.. ” He looks to the side for a moment then back at him, Izuku always admired how he could be so calm if only he could be like that.
Not becoming a stuttering mess when talking about anything.
" I don’t need anything, I’m just concerned for you. You seem more out of it than usual. ” now this, this is something new, well more like unusual for him, The Shōto Todoroki. ′ wait... Him? Concerned? For me?- that’s something I didn’t expect him to say. ′ Izuku brought himself back to reality, trying to answer his statement.
" I- I’m sorry, I made you worry..! It’s just- I mean... I want to catch up to Kacchan... ” The classroom became quiet for a few seconds.
Until Todoroki’s voice cut the silence, and as he said his sentence; he placed his hand on Izuku’s shoulder. ” well, I think you already have potential. You’re smart and competent. I understand where you are coming from, but take care of yourself. ” both of their eyes met. ” just my opinion... ” This feeling he couldn’t quite put his finger on it, the way he gazed at him, made Midoriya feel all tingly inside sorta like butterflies.
Again he dismissed it as being, just how Todoroki complimented him, after all, it is just a generous kind gesture, they’re both best friends. At least that’s what Izuku thought, little did he know Todoroki thought the same, as he felt that same tingly feeling.
" O-okay.. Thanks.. I’ll keep that in mind. It..means a lot coming from you. ” ( Which he wasn’t lying ) Smiling wider than before, almost disregarding the pain it brought to his cheeks, Todoroki takes away his hand from Izuku’s shoulder, placing it back to his side in a swift motion, then he nods, walking away and leaving the classroom.
The figure turned into its more detailed form, and with an almost Irritated expression plastered on its face, it wasn’t visible as much as his calm face, he talked down the unsophisticated boy with his words.
❝ 𝒸ℴ𝓂ℯ ℴ𝓃. ℐ𝓉’𝓈 𝓈ℴ ℴ𝒷𝓋𝒾ℴ𝓊𝓈. ❞
" what’s obvious..? ”
❝ 𝓉𝓈𝓀, 𝒽ℯ 𝒹ℯ𝓈ℯ𝓇𝓋ℯ𝓈 𝒷ℯ𝓉𝓉ℯ𝓇 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓃 𝓎ℴ𝓊. ❞
Without saying another word to it, Izuku grabs his notebook then phone, not wanting to deal with him again. He knew what the figure said was just to get under his skin.
❝ 𝒪𝒽 𝓈ℴ 𝓎ℴ𝓊’𝓇ℯ ℊℴ𝒾𝓃ℊ 𝓉ℴ 𝒾ℊ𝓃ℴ𝓇ℯ 𝓂ℯ 𝒶ℊ𝒶𝒾𝓃? ℬ𝒾ℊ 𝓈𝓊𝓇𝓅𝓇𝒾𝓈ℯ. ❞
Midoriya again dismissed the figure then began to walk towards the sliding door, and opened it taking a short pause before stepped outside, and closing it. The Figure followed behind him, with it around pointing out every flaw, Izuku would eventually break, that was the sort of thinking he thought of.
" Stop trying to provoke me. It isn’t going to work-” The figure let out a laugh and sighed, leaving the great haired boy stunned at how genuine the laughter sounded.
❝ 𝔀𝓸𝔀~ 𝔂𝓸𝓾 𝓻𝓮𝓪𝓵𝓵𝔂 𝓰𝓸𝓽 𝓶𝓮 𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓮- ❞
" I’m not joking- ”
❝ 𝓎ℴ𝓊 𝓇ℯ𝒶𝓁𝓁𝓎 𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃𝓀 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓉’𝓈 𝓉𝒽ℯ 𝓇ℯ𝒶𝓈ℴ𝓃 ℐ’𝓂 𝒽ℯ𝓇ℯ? 𝒸ℴ𝓂ℯ ℴ𝓃. 𝓎ℴ𝓊 𝒶𝓃𝒹 ℐ 𝒷ℴ𝓉𝒽 𝓀𝓃ℴ𝓌 𝓎𝓸𝓾 𝓌ℴ𝓊𝓁𝒹 𝒽𝒶𝓋ℯ 𝒷ℯℯ𝓃 𝓃ℴ𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃ℊ, 𝓦𝓲𝓽𝓱𝓸𝓾𝓽 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓺𝓾𝓲𝓻𝓴𝓼 𝓱𝓮 𝓰𝓪𝓿𝓮 𝔂𝓸𝓾. ❞
′ don’t listen.. ′
It’s been almost a month since the figure attached its self to him, he’s learned a few things about it, but not enough. Every day that he kept telling him lies, it started sounding more like the truth.
As he walked down the hallway, someone called out to him, which made him flinched.
" h-hello..! Um... I’m sorry I scared you..! ”
The girl said in a sad but worried tone, he immediately knew who the girl was. She was from Class 1-B, her name is Tsunotori next to her there was Kendo.
” N-no..! It’s okay, do you need anything?.. ”
She smiled innocently and said her sentence.
” well... I wanted to make sure you’re okay... You seem so sad.. ”
" I’m fine. I guess it’s just stress... Heh... ” Honestly this surprised him, he wasn’t used to people getting his attention or at least take the time out of their day to get his attention.
" oh... Alright- ” Kendo then interrupted her, she seems to be worried. “Are you sure it’s just that? ”
" w-what do you mean..? ”
Izuku’s voice changed to a nervous one, her words making him overthink everything.
“well. I know Monoma has been more aggressive towards you, and your class. ”
" d-does... Is it that.. -nono! I.. I understand that’s his personality...-” forcefully let out a chuckle, hoping that she would buy into Midoriya’s half-lie.
“Hmph. Still. I’ll teach him a lesson- ” without even thinking the green-haired boy interrupted her, just wanting to be alone and not take time out of their lunch. ” you- you don’t have to do that..! Though I-I think you should head to the cafeteria, I don’t want to keep you away from eating. ”
" oh! I almost forgot! We’ll let you be then! ”
She turns to Tsunotori and beamed with joy.
” come on! I’m staving..!” Tsunotori nodded, returning a smile. ” Yeah, Me too..! ”
" see you later! ” Kendo happily said as she and Tsunotori walked away. ” yeah... See ya.. ”
The tone of voice he gave them became soft like a whisper at the end of his sentence, Izuku looked outside through the big windows overlooking the lovely view and lighting.
′ might as well go to the roof.. ′ A smile began to show, thinking about the breeze messing up his green hair curls, even more, the view he would have up there, and could even work on his different techniques he came up with, maybe also improve them too.” or... I could just listen to music.” muttering to himself, letting out a sigh soon after, it was apparent that it came from lack of sleep.
" having trouble sleeping I see. ” A tap of someone’s finger on his shoulder made him leap out of his skin and quickly turning around.
All Might stood there slightly smiling but also worried.
“A-A-ALL MIGHT-..!? h-hi..-! Sorry! When did you-”
" I saw you deep in thought like always. ”
He said casually, though Izuku can tell his mentor was unsettled by the behavior displayed these past weeks. All might watched as his student began to speak but soon turned into mumbling under his breath while looking down ashamed.
” o-oh! U-uh yeah! I have just been soooo busy you know- Coming up with new techniques and such- ” He hits the mumbling boy’s head in a chopping motion making him shut up shortly, looking up at him confused.
” I know you want to do your best but you seriously need to take better care of your health. ”
" u-um... It isn’t that bad as breaking my bones-”
" don’t get smart with me..! ” All Might said back to him with a hint of fooling around, the short boy cracked up and smiled softly. ” sorry..! ” In return, his mentor smiled more brightly, he wasn’t forcing his smiles like when he is being interviewed by reporters.
This time; it was genuine.
" I’m joking, young Midoriya. ”
Midoriya closed his eyes a bit tightly then rubs them with clenched fists almost baby-like and yawns slowly. All Might noticed how tired his student was and patted his head once more. The green-haired boy wondered why he pats his head from time to time, but it doesn’t bother him at all.
It made Izuku feel cared for, sorta like a father figure kind of comfort.
" how about you get some rest at the teacher’s lounge? ”
′ Well... That’s a bit much... Do I look that tired..? ′ His thoughts began to circle him again like usual, but stopped himself from becoming a mumbling mess.
" wouldn’t that be a bit much, All Might. It’s just .. Lack of sleep.. ”
" you said you wanted to work on your techniques am I right..? For that you need energy. Wouldn’t want you to pass out, my boy.”
All Might had a point, though Izuku didn’t want to be a bother, he needed to sleep, speaking of which his vision was beginning to get more blurry.
” actually... I think I’ll take your offer..”
" Alright, Let’s get going then..! ” On their way to the teachers’ lounge, Izuku tried to make small talk with All Might, which ended up to a conversation of Class 1-A being idiots or just on crack.

" NOO!- AAH-!! ” He jolts up in a sitting position, his vision was dark but gradually went away, realizing that a few teachers were trying to let him go of something or someone.
" Y-young Midoriya! Let go-! ” Izuku’s grip tighten then loosen when he heard All Might’s voice, placing his hand down on the couch behind him; balancing his weight. Breathing was stiff and short like he just ran for miles and the pain soon kicked in, making the boy’s eyes widen and the rest of his body shiver in agony.
” Young Midoriya..- ”
" All... Might..? ”
Midoriya looked around to see All Might very worried, Mr.Aizawa holding his wrist in pain, almost all the teachers were looking at him, some seeing if the slightly injured homeroom teacher was alright. His eyes then landed on the clock to the side All Might was at, which he flinched as his student looked at him. Quickly, Izuku grabbed his stuff-
" Wait! Midoriya you- ”
That’s all he heard midnight say before leaving, saying sorry in a whisper, genuinely worried but at the same time disturbed.
′ this... What the hell was that thing..?!-” Students began to go down and up the halls, making him nervous more than the usual anxiety he had around people, though It didn’t let it get to him back then, It does now after what the figure has told.
′ don’t be weird-don’t be weird..- ′
Izuku got a few stares at times, also glares, and laughs, him processing that ‘nightmare’ he just had, wasn’t helping him at all to at least walk properly, after all, Midoriya had just woken up. He looked down for a moment because his vision had become blurry for a bit, and eventually shutting his eyes not just because of tiredness but stress.
Out of nowhere, a hard push slammed Izuku’s body into the wall, creating a thump bringing attention to him and the person. He looks up to see someone, they had an irritating expression on their face, it began to bring back memories.
” S-Sorry! - ” The tone Midoriya heard himself say that one word, the feeling at the same time right there, made him stunned.
He didn’t want to go back to his old self; not again.
" watch where you goin’- ”
" isn’t he in class 1-A..? ”
His; suppose friend asked waiting for the confirmation, from the one who pushed the short green-haired boy.
" That kid who can’t control his quirk. ” it sounded like a statement than a question, the person grabbed his tie and lifted Midoriya a bit. His expression changed to a desperate, but also confused and shocked one.
” say... You think you can just bump into me and say ‘sorry’ ..?! Just because you’re above me- ”
" N-no! I- I am! I wasn’t watching- ”
" Tch- trying to act innocent? - ”
′ Ow... Why is everything going downhill today?..! I’m just filled with bad luck aren’t I?! ′ As he got trapped in his thoughts for a moment, a familiar voice cut through the surrounding hallway area and the confrontation. ” Hey! Leave him alone. ”
Izuku’s eyes shift to the side, there stood Jirou walking up to the tension-filled air.
” And who are you to tell me what to do. ”
The person talked back to her, it made him realize that right now how he was acting was just like his junior high self, the quirkless, weak, nervous wreck; Deku.
" I said, To leave him alone. ” He let go of the tie around the boy’s neck, then walked to her even closer, Jirou placed her hand on the right side of her hip. ” Oh. You’re the one with no talent what so ever, from the U.A School Festival; Right? ”
Students stopped and watched the slight chaos that was unfolding in front of Izuku.
The person smirked satisfied with Jirou’s slight different expression, Midoriya could tell that she was a bit hurt with his words, but soon realized that his word didn’t mean shit. Jirou was about to respond until Kaminari interrupted their little tension.
" Don’t speak to her, nor my classmate like that... ” His voice at the start of his sentence was formal and calm but at the end, it changed, to a murmur only him, jirou, and Izuku could hear, at least that’s what Midoriya thought.
" I could easily beat the shit out of you, I recognize an asshole like you when I see one.. Trust me when I say, you can walk away without any injuries or with. ” Kaminari’s voice was monotone and stern, he backed away and smiled so innocently, you could hardly imagine he threatened him.
" You must be the dumbass everyone makes fun of.”
" don’t call him that. ” Those words come out from Izuku’s mouth out of instinct, but the way he said it was unnerving. Yet again he didn’t exactly say it, well he did, it’s just that It didn’t hit him fast enough.
” it’s okay, Midor-”
" nℴ, 𝒾t 𝒾𝓈n’t K𝒶m𝒾𝓃𝒶ri~𝓀u𝓃...❞ His sentence sounded distorted on Izuku’s side; the tone changed, Kaminari seemed surprised as well as Jirou the way he declared his sentence was intense.
It wasn’t Midoriya that’s for sure.
❝ 𝓎ℴ𝓊.. 𝒲ℴ𝓊𝓁𝒹𝓃’𝓉 𝓂𝒾𝓃𝒹 𝒾𝒻 ℐ 𝓉ℴℴ𝓀 ℴ𝓋ℯ𝓇 𝒻ℴ𝓇 𝒶 𝒷𝒾𝓉, 𝓇𝒾ℊ𝒽𝓉?.. ❞ This little ‘requested’, was only heard by izuku.
′ Wait - wh- ′ For a moment his body became numb then went back to ‘normal’, it felt like he wasn’t in his own body, but was looking through the same point of view like all of his life. The person turned his head towards Jirou and Kaminari, definitely not wanting to do anything with Midoriya at the moment.
❝ 𝒟ℴ𝓃’𝓉 𝒾ℊ𝓃ℴ𝓇ℯ 𝓂ℯ. ❞
The hallways became crowded with students some were just captivated with the tension-filled area, others tried to get through the crowd to their class.
Since the hallways were becoming piled a bit, Izuku’s friends noticed.
" Ugghh... Why is it so packed..?! ”
Uraraka whined, pouting like a child, and crossed her arms, lifting her chest with a bit of sass.
” it’s unusual, I doubt it’s a villain attack... ” Asui said out loud, with a finger on her bottom lip thinking of another explanation or reason.
" I agree, generally there would be an alarm. ”
Iida said a bit irritated but kept his composure. Todoroki tried to see what was going on up ahead, he was almost the same height as Iida by just a bit still, he saw nothing but students trying to get through, then a push sends him staggering forward pushing a boy in front of him. ” my apologies. ” Todoroki said once getting a hold of his balance, but as he did this. ” I-Its fine. ”
" Ow-! ” Someone’s horn poked on his back, then it retracted, it did create a bit of pain but nothing he couldn’t handle ( thanks to his ‘father’ ). Todoroki turns around to see Mina caressing her horn in agony, she then perked up with tearful eyes.” I-I’m sorry! Todoroki- Someone-”
" LOOK WHERE THE FUCK YOU’RE GOING BLIND ASS! ” Bakugou’s raspy and fierce voice came out of nowhere, shouting at a student who was backing away and had bumped into Mina as well as Bakugou. ” Bakugou! Calm down! You’ll get in trouble! ” Sero cautioned, which his explosive friend dismissed, meanwhile producing explosions on the palm of his hands warning anyone to stay away or else he’ll send them all the way to hell.
As Todoroki saw this chaos ensue in front of him, and shrugged it off since it was an accident. “it’s okay, but what about your horn- ” Shōto stopped and thought to himself why he would ask or care about someone he wasn’t close with. ” Oh..! It’s okay... It just hurts is all... ” In the background, Iida tried to intervene in the fight that was about to start. Until a large amount of wind pass by all students, almost making them fall like a domino effect.
" What the hell- was that..?! ”
" Did someone use their quirk?! ”
" what the hell?! ”
" on school grounds?! ”
" Are you alright? ”
" Augggh- my back— ”
