Thank you for starting this beautiful blog. I love it so so much <3 I'm so happy that the ask box is open!!! I would like to request Bakugou having a hard time to say "I love you" back to his s/o. It's not like he doesn't like them or anything, he's just shy to say it. Then he heard a convo from the girls telling them that "he's not the right guy if he doesn't say I love you back" and etc. Bakugou feels bad and s/o noticed this and asks what was wrong and it ends with him saying "I love you"~!
Thank you for your kind words and I’m very happy you like everything so far! I very much hope you don’t mind that I tweaked your request a bit? If it is a problem, let me know. Aside from that, I hope that I could write it well enough and that you’re going to like it!
The thing is, Bakugou doesn’t care at all what other people say or think. Even when he overhears someone telling his partner that he’s not the right guy if he can’t say something, it only serves to make him angry.
What do they know about his feelings? How dare they judge something they don’t know anything about? He stalks away, fuming and goes to train to blow some steam off.
Later though, he thinks about it again, especially when he’s together with his partner and they seem a bit subdued as well, though they also notice his mood.
“Is everything okay?” They ask at some point, when they’re cuddled up on his bed.
Dragging a hand through his hair, Bakugou removes his arm from where it rests over their shoulders and urges them to sit up as he faces them properly.
“Are you fucking happy with me?” He asks them, face serious and scowling just a little.
His partner looks surprised. “Of course I am.”
He nods and drags in a deep breath, before he heavily exhales. “Listen, I overheard the shit those other girls told you today.” He begins and they grow serious as well. “Is what they said really a damn problem for you? Do you think I don’t feel shit for you?”
His partner looks surprised and taken aback, before they frown a little. Bakugou knows instantly that he worded things badly and holds up a hand. “Shit, sorry, that came out wrong.”
He inhales again. “Okay, I want you to know that you mean a whole fucking lot to me. I’m just…I want to be ready to say it, you know?”
His partner’s face softens and they take his hands into theirs. “Bakugou, I don’t want you to feel pressured into it. Of course you should say it when you’re ready. Take your time.” They give him a small, encouraging smile and Bakugou feels a tense line in his shoulders disappearing.
They end up cuddling for the rest of the evening and Bakugou hugs them a tad closer than usually. They proceed like normal and Bakugou finds himself just a tad more tactile with them, kissing them a moment longer and he notices he appreciates the small things between and the easy laughter.
It happens a couple of days later, when they’re lying in bed and are ready to go to sleep. He has his arms wrapped around his love and all of a sudden, he notices how damn fucking much he loves them. Tightening his grip, he presses his forehead against their shoulder.
“I fucking love you.” He finds himself saying, hugging them as close as he can.
His partner hugs him back just as tightly, their head dropping to his shoulder as well. “I love you too.”
