It was your husband’s movement that woke you up. You should have been used to this by now, after all, it wasn’t the first time that he would be called in for work this early. It had probably begun since the beginning of your marriage two, almost three years ago.
The two of you had actually met as first years attending the U.A., and soon enough became fast friends. You two worked flawlessly as a team, with your wind-based complimenting the engine mechanisms that Tensei had on his arms.
The two of you hadn’t started dating until the end of your second year when he nervously asked you to be his girlfriend, messing up some of his words unlike his normally cool and (mostly) collected self.
During your marriage, you became a very light sleeper so most things would get you up, like right now.
“Duty’s calling again?” You asked with mirth at the sight of Tensei tiptoeing around the room in full costume (except for his helmet).
Your husband jumped, before rubbing his head with a sheepish grin on his face.
“What’s the work for today?” You asked curiously, sitting up, with your husband coming towards you to help you (even if you could do it yourself).
“Just a small investigation, nothing too bad,” Tensei replied, attempting to be nonchalant, which you saw through completely.
Playfully rolling your eyes, you took a quick look outside, the sun hadn’t even risen yet, which made you raise an eyebrow in mild interest.
“It better be something important if they’re calling you this early. It’s still dark outside,” You murmured.
“I know. But I’ll be fast, or my name isn’t Turbo Hero Ingenium!”
You pretended to pout, “Are you sure you can’t come back to bed? It gets cold without my cuddle partner. Plus Tenya has the sports festival going on today. We told him we’d watch. ”
“I know, I’ll be back before you know I’m gone,” He promises with a small smile before giving you a gentle kiss on the lips and then on the forehead.
“Well, I’m going back to sleep, or at least try to,” You answer, looking down at your abdomen before lying down again, “Expect these blankets to be hogged oh husband of mine.”
“I’ll hold you to it,” He answers, a grin on his face, then he looks down at your stomach, placing his gloved palm on top of it, although you weren’t quite there to your due date, your stomach was quite large, “and I hope you behave to let your mother rest.”
Once again, you playfully roll your eyes,“The kid’s a little rebel, Ten, now they’re definitely gonna keep me awake instead of listening to you.”
He laughs, before putting on his helmet. But you could see a small bit of hesitation in his eyes, whatever he was going to do must have been serious.
“Tensei,” You said barely loud enough for him to hear just before he left your shared bedroom, “Please, be careful.”
He only nods.
Closing the door behind him, Tensei exhaled, a small amount of doubt had begun to linger in his mind.
‘I’m sorry [Y/N], I don’t know if I can promise you that.”
Although put off that she couldn’t watch the U.A’s annual sports festival with her husband, [Y/N] still watched the event support your (little) brother-in-law.
Sure they were showing the 2nd and 3rd years as well, but [Y/N] could definitely say she preferred the 1st years, they all had shown a vast quantity of potential.
The festival was finally at the Battle Tournament portion, and Tenya made it all the way to the semi-finals before being beaten by a boy with dual-colored hair.
While it was on commercial break, she stood up, and went towards the kitchen to find something to snack on, it seemed that the baby was making her particularly hungry today.
As she raided the fridge, [Y/N] couldn’t help but wince as the kicks coming from the little one inside of her became more frequent. It didn’t help that an odd feeling was lingering in the back of the hero’s mind.
Then the phone rang.
“[Y/N]?” It was a friend she had within the local police force, “Something happened, but I need you to stay calm for what I’m about to tell you.”
From their tone, [Y/N] could tell that something bad happened. And the odd feeling she had grew into dread, “What happened?”
“It’s your husband. A villain got him.”
The phone fell from [Y/N]’s hand.
