it's a convenience store

Totally Unexpected (bh6 Hiro x Reader)

Late nights are usually Hiro’s best times to go out and just go on a stroll. Or, for this time at least, go find some gummy bears. His older brother practically ‘molested’ that last bag of those delectable sweets just a few moments ago. So, Hiro thought he’d get some by himself. He looked left and right, past those neon lights and through the convenience stores, but its as if a gummy bear shortage happened when he was off saving the world. Just one bag, he said desperately to himself, or a piece.

“Aghhhhh!” the agitated boy muttered, shoving his hands in his jacket pockets.

For a few more minutes, he strolled down the streets, almost unaware for the fact that it was getting a wee late for him. But, being a teen with raging hormones, almost the same intensity as a girl would, he kept looking. He was craving for it. Willing to do a backflip if he could. And just when he thought he lost hope, one store caught his eyes. He turned his head to look at it. It wasn’t really that of big for a convenience store.

But the sweets aisle was visible even from a few feet away. And sure enough, he had seen what he was looking for. Gummy Bears. Just one more pack.

And like lightning, he dashed for the door, and almost broke his shoulder just pushing it open. He neglected the clerk’s uncomfortable stare at him, his feet carrying him faster than he could comprehend. Now, the sweets were just an arm’s length away, and so he reached out his hand to take it. It was more than a miracle to him just to see him getting closer to it.

“JUST A FEW MORE INCHES!” a huge smile was forming on his face.

But he stopped. He was finally near the pack of sweets. But what he saw wasn’t his hand grabbing the pack. Another hand was grabbing it, which in fact got there first than Hiro did. He was baffled, he couldn’t believe he was outrun by whoever that person was. He then turned his attention angrily to that person, but he paused just at the sight of the face of the person.

A she. A girl. Looking flushed, as if she had ran for the pack herself. Her eyes were looking directly into his, only with a hint of possession over the gummy bears, her soft lips letting out hitches of breath rapidly. Strands of her hair were dangling loosely from her face, although messy, looked perfect on her. She looked, just his age. For Hiro, she was captivating, but that didn’t hinder him from taking those gummy bears off her hands.

“Hey, I saw that first.” he said flatly.

“No.” But even with just the sound of her voice saying one word captivated him even more, making him widen his eyes and blush a bit, “I got it first. Go get another one.”

He gave her a look, pretending to look around the area and back at her with a haughty smile on his face,. “Hmmm…oh my! I cannot see any more packs around here, even anywhere else!”

The girl was in fact displeased by his response, and shoved the pack in her pockets. A smug smile was on her face, almost taunting the 14 year old with her stare.

“Well. Get it from me then.”

Hiro paused, and scoffed at her attempt. “O-oh, I’m sorry…'lady’. I don’t hurt girls.”

Steroetyping. This only ticked off the girl even more, and did not whatsover make her give the pack. Hiro was surprised to see her bend forward a bit, and taunt him. Challenging him to chase after her. If only Hiro wasn’t desperate, he wouldn’t get into trouble with this. But alas, he was. So he swiftly lunged at her, but as if she had ninja reflexes, she dodged him in a blink of an eye. Again, he attempted, but she swiftly slid to her right.

Then it hit him. It was on.

“Alright. You asked for it.” he warned her.

He lunged forward to pin her down, but she had turned to her heel and dashed off around the aisles. Hiro was fast enough to get on his feet and run after her. He saw her turn to a dead end, and thought she was trapped. But when he thought he had finally won, she adruptly landed her feet right on the walls and jumped over one aisle. Hiro stopped dead in his tracks, utmost shock running up on his face. The girl landed successfully on her feet, and through the other aisle, looked at Hiro with a confident smile on her face.

“Come on! Can’t you give a boy a chance?!” he tried to convince the girl.

“Give the boy a chance…” she gesticulated sarcastically. “Nope. Supposed to be the other way around, nitwit.”

It came to the boy that she wasn’t was she looked like. She’s skilled. A fighter, likewise to him. He liked this, though, a challenge he thought he had won but turned up with an unlikely twist. So he turned to see if the girl was still there, only to see no one at the other aisle, followed by a simultaneous pattern of beeps. The boy ran to the counter, his eyes landing on the silhoutte running away into the dark alleys.

“I won’t chase after her, if I were you…” the clerk trailed off, looking at Hiro warily.

But only to receive a smug expression from the boy’s face.

“I’m desperate.”

“Well well, look who’s bac-HIRO?!”

There Hiro stood, at the top of the stairs and in the room, with scratches all over his arms and legs, dirt clinging on his cheeks, his hair messier than it was before. The elder brother looked at him, eyes widened both in shock and anger of what stupidity his brother had done yet again. Seeing your younger brother, at 12 midnight, looking like a huge mess wasn’t okay for Tadashi. So yes, it had hit him that Hiro did something stupid, again. He gave him a look, and grabbed Hiro by his arm.

“Where.Have.You.Been.” he sternly asked Hiro, who only gave him a shrug.

“I was only looking for gummy bears. After you ate mine.” Hiro intonated the last sentence clearly to his brother.

“Looking like that?” An exhasperated sigh was heard from Tadashi, his hands rubbing his face. “Aunt Cass is going to EAT UP this whole place if she saw you like that!”

“Nope. I avoided her by climbing up a window. It’s your fault, anyways!”

“I didn’t KNOW, okay Hiro? But you didn’t have to go out and do something idiotic…AGAIN.”

Tadashi only shook his head and turned around. How stupid his brother was for getting into…whatever he got into for a pack of sweets. He always knew he’d do something like this over something he desperately wanted to have. It was in his nature, a part of Hiro; he knew he couldn’t stop him from doing that. Accepting the fact, he sagged down on his seat and turned his attention back to Hiro.

“Is there something that I need to know here, Hiro?” Tadashi threw a piece of cloth for Hiro to wipe the dirt off.

The younger brother had caught the cloth and only looked down on it. “Well…” Hiro’s voice sounded unsure, and this Tadashi knew. “…n-nothing really.”

“Then how will you explain…” Tadashi paused, and spread out his arms at Hiro, “..this?!”

“You just gestured to all of me.”

“Exactly the point. Explanation, now.”

Hiro sighed, knowing that his brother will continue on to pry him even if he didn’t want to. So he had no choice but to explain.

“Okay…okay…so I was out, you know, a-and I couldn’t find a single store with any gummy bears, but I found one store, with one pack of it and…”

Hiro paused, embarassed by the fact that a girl almost outwitted him, and not wanting to tell his brother. And another thing that he was frustrated about. Something he never wanted to happen, well because he was annoyed of that girl, but it happened. He liked the girl. Had developed a liking for the feisty one.

“And?” Tadashi said, raising an eyebrow at Hiro.

“…a girl got it first. And I-”

But instead of Hiro hearing Tadashi scold him, Tadashi had bursted out laughing. Hiro stopped, and looked weirdly at his brother. He felt himself blushing in embarassment as he continued on laughing. But luckily, his older brother had stopped, tears brimming on the edges of his eyes, as he caught his breath to face Hiro again.

“That’s sucks man…” Tadashi looks at the younger boy still blushing and looking down at the floorboard. “Hiro?”

Hiro looked up at Tadashi, and only shook his head. “I-it was nothing. But…who is she though?”

Tadashi’s eyes perked up at the sight of Hiro wondering about, well, a girl. It seems that Hiro had developed a liking for this girl. At a very young age, on the record.

“S-she was, fiesty and all. And she, she was not just a pretty face, Tadashi!” Hiro had pointed out with a tone, as Tadashi approached his brother and leaned in. “She was like…a-a ninja. I didn’t get the pack…”

His elder brother knew for sure that Hiro liked the girl. His brother, only 14 years of age, has now developed his first crush, only to a girl who beat him in the chase. A grin spread on his face, as he layed his hand on his brother’s shoulder, and with a chuckle, he said:

Previous evening….
Ladybug: oh man i’m famished. dang its late i wonder if there’s a convenience store still open nearby somewhere
Chat: *checking the map in his baton* Oh milady i know a place! c’mon!!

Ladybug: chat…..this is Rustance.
Chat Noir: yeah so? its the closest convenience store according to the map. i buy a quick meal here all the time. and they’re really cheap!
Ladybug: *hard stare* have you even ever been to a seven eleven?
Chat Noir: what is that?

“[I]t is actually more expensive to be poor than not poor. If you can’t afford the first month’s rent and security deposit you need in order to rent an apartment, you may get stuck in an overpriced residential motel. If you don’t have a kitchen or even a refrigerator and microwave, you will find yourself falling back on convenience store food, which—in addition to its nutritional deficits—is also alarmingly overpriced. If you need a loan, as most poor people eventually do, you will end up paying an interest rate many times more than what a more affluent borrower would be charged. To be poor—especially with children to support and care for—is a perpetual high-wire act.”

Pennsylvania Food Part ½

Pennsylvania is one of the only states with a unique cuisine, most of which was brought over by German settlers during America’s colonization. Some of this food has made its way across America in the forms of snack brands and convenience stores. The following are some restaurants and brands that began or are based in PA. 

Food Wars

Wawa v Sheetz

The easiest way to tell if someone’s from PA is to ask them what gas station has the best food. If they’re from the west, they’ll say Sheetz. If they’re from the east, Wawa. And if they’re not from PA, they’ll tell you they don’t eat at a gas station. 

Snack Brands

Sturgis; Snyder’s of Hanover

Pretzels were first brought over by the Germans, and the first hard pretzels were actually made in PA by Sturgis in 1861. Both of these local PA companies have since expanded their brand to various sweet and salty pretzel snacks, as well as other snack food.

Herr’s, Martin’s, Utz

PA has a variety of local potato chip companies, but these three are the best known.

Candy

Hershey’s 

Hershey’s is of course America’s favorite and best known chocolate/candy brand. Milton Hershey established his company’s town in 1905 in Dauphin County. Hershey, PA is known for the Hershey factory, hotel, school, and amusement park, complete with Kiss-shaped street-lamps. It’s also famous for those singing cows, and I hope you’ve got that song stuck in your head, because you know I do. 

Wilbur Chocolate Company

Living in the shadow of Hershey is this small chocolate manufacturer in Lititz, PA. It makes cocoa products for sale to bakeries, as well a line of chocolates for consumers, including their famous Wilbur Buds.

Just Born

This Brooklyn candy company moved some of its operation to Bethlehem, PA in 1932. It’s famous for Mike and Ike’s, as well as Peanut Chews and Peeps, both of which were acquired from local PA candy companies after the move. Every New Year’s Eve, Just Born drops a large candy Peep in Bethlehem, as the local version of the Time’s Square ball. 

Boyer

This small candy company is famous for the Mallow Cup, marshmallow inside a chocolate cup. 

Gertrude Hawk

This gourmet chocolate manufacturer in Lancaster County probably provided your fundraising material if you went to school in PA. They have many retail stores across the northeast. 

Tastykake

They produce a wide variety of packaged baked good snacks, similar to Little Debbie or Twinkies. (But better)

Other brands

Primanti Bros. Restaurant

This Pittsburgh sandwich shop started as a sandwich cart in the 1930s, and has now expanded to over 30 locations across the northeast.

Heinz 

This ketchup brand is an American favorite that was founded in Sharpsburg, PA in 1869

Turkey Hill

Founded in 1931 by a bottled milk salesman, this family company eventually expanded into a dairy and ice creamery. This Lancaster County company is now owned by Kroger. Their ice cream is sold nationwide, and there are a few dairy stores across the northeast. Turkey Hill is also famous for their iced tea. 

A-Treat Bottling Company

Established in 1918 in Allentown, this soda company temporarily stopped production in 2015. Now back on the market, this soda is famous for its traditional manufacturing methods and products such as birch beer, root beer, and cream soda.

Ha I really did make myself cry over the fact that I Will Never Understand Science. I have a suspicion that a particular Uterine Situation must be nigh. So to comfort myself and also reward myself for getting my car looked at like a Big Girl (the brakes were making grinding noises, and it turns out they’re under warranty and totally covered– for one more month. Go me!) i am currently demolishing the last remnant of the half gallon of Stewarts’ Philly Vanilla ice cream I smuggled back with me from Troy last trip. 

Stewarts, y’all, is the best. But they’re privately owned (partially by employees) and have said that a key to their business model is proximity to their warehouse/manufacturing facility, so they will not be expanding any further than they currently have. 

There was sort of more than one serving left of ice cream but god damn it I deserved it.
