The long awaited part 2 is here~ A Sequel to this~
She chuckled, her hand raising up to her mouth in a sophisticated like manner to hide her smile. Her eyes closed shut, hiding away the gems she had for eyes and the way they dazzled under the classroom lighting.
She was being fucking irresistible again and he could not stand it.
He knew she could feel his eyes on her, as did Round Face and Frog Girl. The two other girls seemed less than pleased to have Bakugou watching them, but even they knew by this point it was not them who Bakugou was watching.
It was (Name) who was being watched.
“He’s looking over here again.” Ochaco whispered to you, her hand hiding her giggles. “He must really like you to be doing this so often.”
Tsu nodded in agreement, her pointer finger tapping against her chin in thought. “Who would have guessed Lil’Baku would have fallen for anyone in the first place. But at least with you…”
“-You can keep him in line!” Ochaco cheered and Tsu shook her head.
“No Ochaco-chan. At least with (Name)-chan, Lil’Baku will have someone who can handle him and does not mind his personality.”
“Ah ah ah~” You cooed and swung your finger to your two friends. “I won’t be doing anything for that boy until he confesses.”
“I don’t get it?” Ochaco pondered and glanced at you, a frown adorning her features. “Why do you need a confession out of him, didn’t he already tell you he liked you?”
“Not exactly…” You sighed, remember the night from a week ago very well. “He confessed to liking me while not knowing he was talking to me in the first place. And then… when I gave him the chance to tell me when I told him it was me…”
“DON’T FUCKING WALK AWAY! GET YOUR ASS BACK HERE AND TALK TO ME, YOU LIL’SHIT!” He hollered and dashed up the stairs after her, making sure the rose on his chest was still attached to his heart.
You paused at the top of the staircase and made room for him at the top. “Yes Bakugou-kun?”
He stopped, red eyes widening and a small blush coming onto his face. He had ran head first into this like most things, but unlike most things, he didn’t have a plan this time around.
“That was you tonight, wasn’t it?!” He hollered averting eye contact.
“Yes it was.” Was your reply, waiting patiently for him to say what you had assumed he was going to say.
He grew a bit tense, the flush of his cheeks getting a bit worse. Finally he clicked his tongue and started moving down the steps again, away from you.
“Well you weren’t half bad of a dancer. My night wasn’t a total fuck up ‘cause of you.”
“Wow seriously?” Ochaco tossed a glare at Bakugou, who returned one back. “After all that and the amazing dance you two had… he goes and ruins the atmosphere but not saying what both of you already know.”
“Why don’t you confess, (Name)-chan?” Tsu suggested, but once again you shook your head in denial.
“Because his whole issue was that he didn’t know if he was in love with me or not. I don’t want to waste my time on a relationship where I’ll be doing all the work, so unless he tells me and proves he wants this as much as I do… then he’ll be continuing to stare at me from across the room with that unsatisfied glare.”
“Ouch~” Ochaco teased. “So cold (Name)-chan!”
“But not uncalled for.” Tsu agreed with you.
Behind the three of you, said topic of discussion was now beginning to grind his teeth in frustration. His eye twitched and his fists balled up, ready to ignite his desk and set the fire alarms off. All these strange pent up feelings were ready to burst open at the drop of a pin.
“Just tell her already man…” Kaminari drew Bakugou back to reality, the pining glare turning into an annoyed one.
“Tell who what, shitty charger?!” He spat back.
“I don’t know what’s worse…” Sero sighed. “How bad you have it for her, or the fact that you’re still denying it.
“I’m not denying anything… I just don’t want to fucking tell her and give her that satisfaction!”
“Dude, she’s not gonna wait for you forever.” Kirishima dropped the bombshell on Bakugou. “Either make your move and confess like a true man, or accept that someone else will come around and take her off the table.”
“Who the hell else would want such a dumbass like her?”
“A few students in Class B.” Kirishima answered.
“There was guy in Gen. Ed. who said she looked good at the dance.” Sero spoke.
“Me, if I had a death wish.” Kaminari chuckled, only to be punched in the gut a minute later.
“Shut your mouth, I already told you not to fucking touch her.” Bakugou removed his fist and went back to watching you.
“I-I was kidding…” Kaminari groaned out.
The lunch bell rang and everyone started moving right away. Bakugou leaned back in his chair, wanting to be left alone to his thoughts. His friends shrugged and went their separate ways from him.
His ruby orbs widened slightly as he made eye contact with you. And with the blink of your eyes, it was gone. And once again, he felt cold. What a strange feeling from someone who literally generated an overpowering amount of heat.
“You’re kinda dumb when it comes to this kinda thing, aren’t you Bakugou?”
Bakugou turned around, seeing Mina sitting on Izuku’s desk behind him. She swung her legs back and forth, her hands popping open a soda. She and Bakugou were now the only two left in class 3-A, meaning she had something she would be telling him. How annoying.
“What do you want Alien Freak?”
“Thank fucking God that stupid name was rejected…”
“And how many tries did it take for you to get approval for your name?”
He was quiet and Mina laughed.
“What the fuck do you want?”
He growled and Mina rolled her eyes. “Try and intimidate me as much as you like, it won’t work on me.”
“Get on with it Acid Girl.”
“You love (Name).”
He clenched his teeth and turned around to face Mina, his face blossoming in red and anger.
“Why the fuck does that matter? And why do you even fucking care?!”
“Cause unlike you, I’m good with romance. And since you’ve helped me with academics since first year, I’m gonna repay the favor by giving you pointers to confess.”
“That’s not the issue!”
“Then what is?”
He grumbled and Mina sighed. “Come again? If you want or need my help… I’m gonna need to hear you Bakugou.”
“I said I’m fucking unsure of how this shit works okay? I’ve never dated anyone before… kissing yes, but dating someone? What fuck am I supposed to do?”
“Do you mean you’re nervous or afraid to date someone, because you’re worried you’ll mess it up?”
He gritted his teeth and nodded. “Don’t you fucking tell anyone.”
“Naw, I’m not a blabber mouth. Though I can see where your problem stems from. Firstly, you’re you… and already that made it unlikely for anyone to like you romantically-”
“WHY YOU LITTLE-”
“Let me finish!”
He grumbled and crosses his arms, letting Mina know she was walking on thin ice with him and this topic.
“Now like I was saying before I was rudely interrupted. (Name) is special to you because you never felt like this about anyone before, correct? So you already have something new and strange on your mind surrounding her. Thus the night of the dance made it worse when you fell for her a second time, huh?
In my opinion, I think that’s the reason you should just come out and say it. You already know how you feel about her, once again you experienced it twice. And you accidentally let it slip to her and she even waited patiently for you to tell her.
It might be terrifying to tell her, but she’s worth it, isn’t she? If you love her, then you need to tell her! No matter what happens she’s worth it! After all, think of all the good stuff that could come out of it if you do.
But if you decide not to for whatever reason… then you need to accept and be content with watching her not only date, but fall in love with someone else.
So Bakugou, what’s worse? Confessing and figuring it out along the way, or not confessing and never knowing?
I know the answer and I think you do too, smart guy.”
Mina rose to her seat, grabbing her phone and typing on the keys, the exact words shielded from the boy in front of her. She finished and slipped her phone away, turning back to Bakugou.
“I told (Name) to meet me under the tree in the courtyard in 5 minutes. I won’t actually be going, so if you feel the need to tell her something, then this is your chance. If not then I guess she’ll be waiting there without anyone…”
Mina stuck her tongue out and made her way out of the classroom. Bakugou grumbled and leaned back in his seat. Decisions, decisions… what should he do?
The change from the fall season turning to winter was already in full swing, even for early November, the weather felt like the time was already in December. (Name) huddled further into her light jacket, cursing herself for not bringing more layers or thicker ones today.
She glanced at her phone again, wondering what was taking Mina so long, as it had been almost 20 minutes since she had gotten the text message from the pink girl. Apparently she wanted to be updated on the Bakugou situation, and thought standing outside in the cold was the best choice.
And now she was not even showing up.
“You’re gonna catch a fucking cold, dumbass.” His familiar gruff voice called out, a thick handmade scarf forcefully being wrapped around your chattering mouth a second later, the fabric wrapping around the lower part of your face and neck.
You turned to look at a blushing Bakugou, his cheeks either reddened from the cold air or the fact he had just wrapped his scarf around you, something he must have had an internal battle with.
“Thanks.” You breathed out and then inhaled, his scent coming into your nose: cinnamon and campfire. It was such an odd combination, but fit him so well. As Bakugou himself was a mixture of traits that one would think did not belong together, yet he made them work.
It was quiet, the chilling winds making a high pitched whistle and the screams from unsuspecting students caught in it being the only noises heard by the two of you. You glanced at him, catching him staring at you once again.
It wasn’t unusual nor was it that he continued to do so, even after catching him he narrowed his eyes and stared even harder if it was possible. This boy was strange and the one you had fallen for.
“Listen, cause I’m only gonna say it once, shitty girl.” He spoke suddenly, his stare hardening making him look almost angry at you.
You nodded keeping quiet and hoping that he finally had gathered the courage to say the thing that you both knew, but had been left unspoken.
He cleared his throat and suddenly grabbed you. He leaned in close and tore his scarf from your face, letting it loosely hang from your shoulders. But the warmth the scarf had given you was not gone, but rather still kept there by something else.
Bakugou’s lips felt warm against yours and you tilted your head into the kiss, enjoying the feeling of him finally kissing you. He settled in and pulled you close to him, holding you in his grip as he continued to capture your lips.
Sadly for the both of you, neither of your quirks allowed you to go long without air and you were forced to pull away. You could feel the redness of your cheeks and knew that his little action had made you as flustered as him.
“So I love you, okay?” He grumbled out, sounding almost annoyed.
You snorted and covered your laugh with your hands. The sounds of him beginning to get into a rage alerted you that he needs reassurance and attention. Doing just that, you swung his scarf around his neck and tugged, sending him close to you.
He blinked and looked way, still not used to this closeness, but also liking the warmness that radiated from you, not letting him move away even if he wanted to.
“My my, I didn’t expect you to actually kiss me and then confess. But I’m glad you did… I love you too.”
“Good… this would have been fucking awful if you hadn’t…”
“Hmm.” You pressed a kiss to his cheek and slipped your hand into his. “I’m cold, so it’s your job to keep me warm.”
“Yeah yeah… whatever.” He huffed and moved, tugging your hand to follow him.
“What did you do with your rose?”
He paused. “I put it in a glass of water… didn’t want to kill the fucking plant after I tore it off the bush.”
“Not because you love me?”
You laughed and pulled you towards the school building, fighting back a smile of his own. Damn you were annoying, but damn did he love you.
“Alright, you guys owe me 2000 yen a piece!” Mina held her hand out.
“Can’t believe you got them both out there…” Kirishima mumbled, placing his money on Mina’s hand.
“I wonder where they’re going now?” Ochaco mumbled, watching as the new couple treated from the tree from the safety of the hallway on the third floor.
“To make out more I bet.” Kaminari joked.
“Bakugou’s so gonna rub this is our face.” Sero chuckled, pacing his money in as well.
“At least they’re finally together.” Tsu mumbled.
“Ship finally sailed~ And I’m 10000 yen richer!” Mina cheered, happy her bet that you two would finally become a thing under that tree having paid off.
