Cowritten by @aoimikans
Ai worked front desk on the top floor of Might Tower with Hikari for nearly seven years. There were three staples of her usual day: a rabid group of ever-changing media personnel, All Might’s rooftop entrances and disappearances behind the Might Gate , and Mr. Toshinori Yagi.
Mr. Yagi was hired after All Might’s vacation following his fight with Toxic Chainsaw. It was rumored Yagi was replacing Sir Nighteye. His uncanny knowledge of every coworker - their birthdays, their favorite foods, the names of their pets - seemed to point to a similar quirk.
The notion was quickly dashed due to Mr. Yagi’s poor health and his own round-about admission that he was Quirkless.
Regardless, the man was a fast friend to everyone in Might Tower.
“Good evening, Ai, Hikari,” Yagi greeted, exiting from his usual staff door. He carried a wide box, and he set it on the front desk with a grin, “Happy International Doughnut Day!”
“Again Mr. Yagi?” Hikari said, giggling, “That’s the third obscure holiday this month!”
“Well, there’s plenty to celebrate,” Yagi chuckled, opening the box and offering the sweets inside, “Besides, you all work so hard. Might as well have fun every now and then.”
Yagi wheezed a laugh at his own joke and coughed, quickly reaching into his breast pocket for his handkerchief.
Ai smiled fondly and nudged a box of tissues his way, “Thank you Mr. Yagi - oh! Is that a s’mores doughnut? Don’t mind if I do.”
Yagi grinned behind his handkerchief and took a few tissues, wiping his mouth and chin.
“Good choice,” he rasped.
“ Breaking News in Musutafu! ”
Yagi jolted, twisting to look at the large television screen on the lobby wall.
“Off to alert All Might?” Hikari grinned knowingly, munching on her own butterscotch doughnut.
“You know him,” He laughed, shaking his head and edging toward the Staff door, “No room for personal time.”
“ A giant villain is making an unwelcome splash at Ushimitsudoki Aquarium and Water Park.”
“No rest for the weary,” Ai said.
“Don’t I know it!” Yagi rushed to the door, pulling on his tie, “Keep the doughnuts!”
