It had been an ordinary day when
the two met: not too cloudy, not too sunny. A day when people wandered the
streets for no particular reason or passion. A day Tomura could blend in, get
his fucking groceries, with his hoody pulled over in casual slacks, nary a need
to brush his hair out from his eyes … or so he thought.
He found himself standing at the
crosswalk, hobbling out to pass only for cars to honk at him, forcing him to
take a step or two back. Fucking cars. He was about ready to give one a hole if
they didn’t –
A large, firm hand clapped his
“Sir?! May I be of assistance?!”
Tomura turned to see a tall,
upright U.A. student with blue hair, glasses, and a rigid jaw line. A fucking
U.A. student was bothering him –? He opened his mouth, but the brat continued.
“I’ve seen you around before!”
“I’ve even seen you walking to your apartment complex before, sir!”
Tomura’s fingers twitched. He
couldn’t have an ordinary day without getting rid of a witness –?
“I can help you across the
street, if you’d like, sir!”
He slouched forward a little
more, the bangs still obscuring his face. “… Excuse me?”
“I’d be happy to help the
elderly, any day!”
He’d been mistaken for an elderly
“Wait, no, no –!” Tomura rasped,
but it was too late: he found himself thrown over Tenya’s shoulder, locked in a
grip vice he could sadly not twist himself from – not even to disintegrate the absurdly
sickeningly brazen child.
“FEAR NOT, SIR! I SHALL GET YOU
TO YOUR DESTINATION!”
Tomura might have screamed.
But he wouldn’t admit it.
Tomura found himself in front of
his flat in 19.6 seconds flat. Unfortunately, in the screeching halt and being
set back onto his own two feet, the contents of his grocery bag spilled in
front of his door.
“I AM SO VERY SORRY, SIR –!”
Tenya bent down, scrambling to pick up everything from the spilled bag. He
stood up, continuing to apologize before daring – actually fucking daring – to reach
a hand forward to brush back stray strands of Tomura’s hair.
“You are no elderly gentleman!”
No fucking duh!
He so badly wanted to disintegrate this child. For fucking pulling him
all the way across town on a shitty whirlwind ride … but then he’d have to
answer to Kurogiri about the missing U.A. student. And he didn’t fancy being
scolded right now.
While Tenya uttered a plethora of
apologies, Tomura opened his apartment and stepped inside. He didn’t expect the
child to follow him in, but considering the child picked up his fucking
“AH! I see you are a fan of video
games, as well!”
Suddenly Tenya was shifting
through the shelves of video games, having the fucking nerve to alphabetize them in front of Tomura.
Tomura didn’t like it: he had them ordered the fucking way he wanted them to be
– why wasn’t he kicking out this kid already -
Tenya stood straight, pulling out
one such video game with a pushed smile. It was a racing game. Tenya’s face
darkened, the entire mood of the room dropping below zero.
“Behold, hero!” Came the icy laugh. “You have nowhere to run! The Insidious Ingendium shall destroy you! FWHAHAHAHAH!”
Was that … was that just a villainous impression?
Tomura began to pick at his neck
in the awkward silence, which the tall blue haired boy had no cue in on. The
kid had … a bizarre sense of humor. But strangely, it erased part of his urge
to utterly destroy something or another. He looked back at the game Tenya was
Jokes, narration … maybe he’d
make a good video game partner.
Times like this, however, with
the absurdly annoying tall brat blocking his screen with some ungodly rigid
posture – how on earth did that kid
stand so straight? Tomura only ever wanted to slouch! – he could hardly resist
the urge to let his five fingers do some dirty work.
“Shigaraki!” Tenya boomed. “I had
carefully alphabetized your video games, and they are out of order not ten
Tomura felt his face tighten, the skin of lips cracking. “I
needed fucking Call of Duty.”
Thicket needed a Halloween costume pic, so here she is as Mildred Hubble from The Worst Witch (she’s dressed as the 1986 version American version) as it was and is still one of my all time favorite Halloween movies!
